“Sandhurst is a military skills competition that was brought over by the English to West Point as an Officer’s competition, initially. It’s grown to bring in ROTC teams and other academies like the Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard, and now we bring in other international Cadets,” said Noah Umezaki, a senior from the University of North Georgia. “It’s just going over military training, military skills, and endurance. Anything you can really think of that would be tied to military training, we will be testing and competing against each other this weekend.”
