Every year the OPS JROTC department organizes a cadet challenge event hosted at Benson High School. This year it was on April 9. The Challenge consists of six events: standing long jump, shuttle run, 50-yard dash, curl-ups, flex-arm-hang (females)/overhand pull ups (males), and the mile run. Each event is designed to measure and test specific muscle groups of the body. Each event is done in stations by school until together they all run the mile, first females, then males. The challenge concludes with an awards ceremony. This year, freshman Achilles Bridgeford represented Central by taking 3rd place in the Freshman division.
