Citadel cadet takes top APFT honors

phillip_martin_1202487Cadet Phillip Martin, a criminal justice major from Cottageville, took first place in the male division of the 2nd Regiment Army physical fitness test June 18 at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash.

“As an Army ROTC cadet, Phillip Martin has demonstrated great potential and is well on his way to becoming an outstanding lieutenant,” said Col. Lawrence Hutto, head of the college’s Army ROTC unit.

Competing against 459 of his peers, Martin grabbed the top spot with a score of 368.

The APFT is broken down into three parts including the two-mile run, two-minute push-up and two-minute sit-up. Each cadet completes all three and then receives a score based on the Army’s APFT score chart. Cadets must pass the APFT based on Army standards for age and gender in order to qualify for the Army. To pass the APFT, cadets must receive at least 60 points in each event.

Martin is a rising senior and the 2013-14 Lima Company commander.
