CHS students participate in Cyber Patriot competition
The Cyber Patriot competition is a competition where students work together to solve computing challenges such as locating where viruses are and where they came from. They have to do this in a six hour period of time. The competition is sponsored by Air Force Association.
Two teams of Crestview High School students participated in the state round of the Cyber Patriot competition on Jan. 31. The two teams were the JROTC team and the Open Team. The members of the JROTC team were: Spencer Koschmeder, Conner Rudolph, Tyler Day. The members of the Open Team were: Brian Rodgers, Jalen Moore, Stephen Caldwell, Dakota Waters, and Gavin Johnson. The JROTC team placed first in their division and advanced to the category round of competition.
The JROTC team participated in the category round of the Cyber Patriot competition on Feb. 19. The team won Runner Up for the Silver Tier. Spencer Koschmeder, the leader of the ROTC team stated “It’s very fun to compete. It can also be challenging. You stare at three computers for six hours straight. It’s fun, but very tiring.”
