GREENVILLE — Easley’s Naval Junior Reserve Officer Corps unit entered three four-person teams in the Spring 2014 Goodwill/St. Francis Sports Medicine Mud Run held April 12 and April 13 at SC-TAC (formally The Donaldson Center.)
The event consisted of 36 obstacles stretched over a 3.5 mile course with mud pits, walls to climb over and obstacles requiring team effort to complete. Easley’s three teams were the A team consisting of Justin Hill, Brandon Marsh, Eric Crenshaw and Jacob Davis, the B team consisting of Freddy Juarez, Tyler Burton, Floyd Horne and Matthew West, and the C team consisting of Ryan Jeanes, Chase Wengerd, Anthony Davis and Brenda Lopez-Perez.
A total of 523 teams competed. Easley’s teams came in 29th, 84th and 110th, respectfully. In the 20 team JROTC category Easley’s teams came in second with a time of 40:53, seventh with a time 46:48 and eighth with a time of 48:21 respectfully.
In the registration process Easley’s teams were somehow all listed as All Male division and not JROTC division so the top 3 in each division results reflect misleading results.
Pickens County School District was well represented by the JROTC athletics in three of the school districts JROTC units with Liberty placing first, Easley second and D. W. Daniel placing third.
