This year the Beaver Battalion traveled to Seattle to compete in Northwest Navy, an annual competition between the Oregon State University, University of Washington, University of Idaho, and University of Utah NROTC units. The midshipmen participated in a variety of events including regulation drill, color guard, and a 5k run. This year, OSU took first place in soccer and volleyball, second in basketball, and placed well overall. The drill team (pictured above) was comprised of this year's fourth class midshipmen, and was lead by drill commander MIDN 4/C Foersch. The freshmen class trained since the beginning of the year for this event, spending multiple days a week practicing movements early in the morning. All their hard work payed off and they performed superbly in Washington. Next year the competition will be held at OSU in Corvallis Oregon.
