STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

Members of the Georgia Southern University Eagle Battalion brought home hardware and big ROTC honors over the weekend.

They won the 6th annual Ranger Challenge against 37 other college programs. It included long distance marches, physical fitness competition and other challenges.

"It all goes to the cadets on the team and the commitment they gave to train for this for months and months," explained Lt. Col. Gary Morea, a professor of military science.

The team will now prepare for the national finals at West Point in April.
