Universities of Idaho/Washington State, Oregon State, Utah and Washington competed in military drill, academic and athletic events

220409-N-IK959-1556, SEATTLE (April 9, 2022) -- Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) midshipmen, officer candidates and Marine Enlisted Commissioning Education Program (MECEP) members participate in a game of Spikeball during the 2022 Northwest Navy Competition on the University of Washington campus, April 9. More than 250 NROTC students and staff members from the Universities of Idaho/Washington State, Oregon State, Utah and Washington competed in military drill, academic and athletic events at the one-day contest. Northwest Navy has been held on a rotating basis between the schools since 1957. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, this was the first time all units were able to compete in person since 2019. Spike Ball is a game similar to volleyball for two teams of two or three players. There is a round net either 36 or 45 inches in diameter that sits eight inches off the ground. A player from one team spikes the ball onto the trampoline-type circular net and tries to get the opposing players to miss or drop the ball to the ground for points. First team to 21 wins. The University of Washington spiked the ball the best for a first place finish. (U. S. Navy photo by Scott A. Thornbloom, Naval Service Training Command Public Affairs/Released)
