Bronco Volleyball is advancing to the National Semi-Finals in Hutchinson, KS.  They play tonight at 5:30pm MST.  You can watch here: http://www.njcaa.org/sports/wvball/2017-18/div1/national_championship/index ($5 pay per view).

 

We hope you enjoy the holiday break with your cadet.  New Cadets are performing well and are successfully demonstrating adherence to the standards and values of the Corps.  They have shown significant growth in personal initiative and character, academic and physical development, and leadership.  They are on track to turn at the end of the semester pending final grades and successful completion of Bronco Challenge, scheduled for 1 December.
