Cynthia Stinnett, a Reserve Officers’ Training Corps cadet at Austin Peay State University, won first place in the female category during the 8th Regiment Army physical fitness test held June 29 at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash.
Competing against 444 of her peers, Stinnett achieved the highest women’s score with a 384.
The test is broken down into three parts, including the two-mile run, two-minute push-up and two-minute sit-up. Each cadet completes all thee and then receives a score based on the Army’s physical fitness test score chart.
Cadets must pass the test based on Army standards for age and gender to qualify for the Army. To pass the test, cadets must receive at least 60 points in each event. - Dr. Melony Shemberger
