A team of Army ROTC cadets from the University of Connecticut finished second in the ROTC division of the 25th annual Army Ten-Miler in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 4.

The ROTC division included 56 teams representing nearly 50 schools.

Running among a record 30,000 people from around the world, the Nathan Hale Battalion improved on its 10th place finish from a year ago. UConn was edged by a team of cadets from Virgina Tech, which won the ROTC crown for the second consecutive year.

Connecticut cadets finished the course with a collective time of 4 hours, 15 minutes, 11 seconds, just 35 seconds off the winning time. Although the squad had eight members, only the top four times counted toward the team’s overall time.

Connecticut cadets whose times counted toward the overall time were Steven Pawlowski, 57:58; Dan Le, 1:03:55; Christopher Gibb, 1:05:49; and James Cameron Denigris, 1:07:31. Other team members completing the race were Stephen Paniati, Douglas Palmer, Evan Malanga, and Josiah Henning.
