In the ’90s, an all-women’s group of Gonzaga ROTC students known as the Green Team trained and competed together as participants in the Ranger Challenge. The Ranger Challenge throws competitors into a series of grueling events, such as rope bridge-building and disassembling and reassembling M-16 rifles. The Green Team was the only all-women’s group among GU’s four teams to compete.
In September 2019, nine members from the ’93-’96 Green Teams reunited to participate in the 175km Klondike Road Relay, which starts in Skagway, Alaska and ends in Whitehorse, Canada.
These ladies beat a lot of ROTC men’s teams back in the 1990s.
