MUW’s Vibrock competes in Southeastern Regional Lawfit Challenge
COLUMBUS, Miss. – Mississippi University for Women police officer Randy Vibrock recently competed against more than 40 others in the Southeastern Regional Lawfit Challenge in Olive Branch where he won two awards.
Events available for officers to complete included a mile and a half run, maximum bench press, sit-ups, pull-ups, sit-and-reach flexibility and a 200-yard agility course. Vibrock competed in all events and placed second in the mile and a half run and won the Bobby Wells Motivation Award, which is given to the competitor who displays the most determination during the competition.
Kennedy Meaders, MUW police chief, said “Officer Vibrock winning the Bobby Wells Motivation Award is no surprise to me. He is passionate about his job, his health and physical well-being and this university. I feel that he represented the university with pride and professionalism.”
The Lawfit Challenge was created in 2003 by Dr. Dave Bever of George Mason University and is meant to test the physical capabilities of police officers.
