Alumna wins "Best Warrior" competition

Alumna named 'Soldier of the Year' in Best Warrior Competition

Following three grueling days earlier this month at Fort Bragg, N.C., 2011 alumna Courtney Harcourt was named one of two winners of the Southeast Medical Area Readiness Support Group's "Best Warrior Competition." The competition tested military skills, physical ability and individual endurance. Harcourt, a combat medic in Nashville, Tenn., will now advance to the next level of competition in Montana.

Harcourt (during competition, left) was named Soldier of the Year in the competition at the Brig. Gen. William S. McArthur U.S. Army Reserve Center. Another competitor, Staff Sgt. Jeremy A. Maglott, was named Noncommissioned Officer of the Year. The two winners will now compete in the Army Reserve Medical Command’s Best Warrior Competition Feb. 22 to 28 at Fort William H. Harrison in Montana.

Harcourt, 24, is from O’Fallon, Mo., and is assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company, SEMARSG in Nashville, Tenn. She is a medical assistant with the Clarksville Pain Institute in Clarksville, Tenn.

January's competition had many elements, including a written exam, a road march, an Army physical fitness test, marksmanship, land navigation, an urban orientation course, as well as various "mystery events."
