ERIC SEREMET HEAD COACH SIXTH YEAR (NORTH CAROLINA ‘92) Eric Seremet is in his sixth season as the head coach for the Air Force lacrosse program. Following the retirement of the legendary Fred Acee in 2008, Seremet, a seven-year assistant for the Falcons, took over the reins as the interim head coach during the 2009 campaign. The 2013 season saw the Falcons face one of their toughest schedules in recent history, with five opponents finishing the regular season ranked in the top 10 nationally. Air Force was able to compile a 7-7 overall record on the year, including a 15-10 win over then-12th-ranked Lehigh, which was the Falcons’ first victory over a top-15 team since 2007. Four of the Falcons’ losses were decided by a single goal, including an overtime road loss to national semifinalist Denver. In 2012, Seremet guided the Falcons to a 6-7 overall record for the second-straight season, including a thrilling overtime victory against service academy rival Army. Seremet also oversaw Air Force’s most potent offensive unit since 1997, as the Falcons averaged 17.8 points and 10.9 goals per contest. In 2011, Seremet helped lead a young Air Force squad to a 6-7 overall record, which included a win over 17thranked Loyola. After a slow start, the Falcons won five of their last six games to reach six victories for just the third time in 14 seasons and the second time in the last three years. With a 3-3 ledger in the ECAC, Air Force tied for third place in the seven-team league. The highlight of the 2010 season came on March 13, as Air Force defeated Army, 8-7, in overtime. It marked the first-ever win for the Falcons over the rival Black Knights in Army’s first trip to the Academy. A late-season surge by Air Force in 2009 saw the Falcons win four-straight contests, including their first win over Ohio State since 1997, to earn their first-ever bid to the GWLL Championship tournament. Over the course of the year, Air Force averaged nine goals per game, its highest offensive output since 1997, while allowing just 8.93 goals per contest. In his first season leading Air Force, Seremet guided the Falcons to a 7-7 overall ledger, including a 4-1 record in the Great Western Lacrosse League and a second-place conference finish. Air Force’s seven wins were the most since 2006 and more than in the previous two seasons combined, while the team finished at .500 for the first time since 1997. In addition, the Falcons’ four league wins were a school-record, while their second-place league finish matched a program-best (set previously in 1995). As the top assistant for the Falcons from 2002-2008, Seremet worked primarily with the offense, while assisting with recruiting and scouting. Since his arrival at the Academy, Air Force has seen improvement in total goals scored and goals per game. In 2005, the Falcons registered a 41 percent increase in scoring output compared to Seremet’s first season at the Academy. Similarly, the Falcons’ extra-man offense has ranked in the top 20 nationally three times with a 37 percent success rate in 2003, 40 percent in 2005 and 38 percent in 2013 (ranking 14th, ninth and 18th respectively).

Prior to his stint at Cornell, Seremet was the top assistant for four years at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. While at Stony Brook, Seremet had his hand in all aspects of the program, coaching both ends of the field. In 1998, he coached the top goaltender in Division I in save percentage, while the defense ranked third in goals against. Seremet also served as a graduate assistant coach at Dartmouth College during the 1993 season. Seremet attended the University of North Carolina, where he was a four-year letterwinner for the lacrosse team.

Since his arrival, the Falcons have allowed their opponents to average less than nine goals per game in six seasons, including 2004, when Air Force allowed just 7.94 goals per contest. As the Falcons’ mentor on the defensive end of the field, Koehler helped guide the Falcons to a 7-7 overall ledger in 2009, including a 4-1 record in the Great Western Lacrosse League and a second-place conference finish. While the team finished at .500 for the first time since 1997, the Falcons’ four league wins were also a schoolrecord. In 2009, Air Force allowed just 8.93 goals per contest, while sophomore goalkeeper Brian Wilson ranked among the league leaders with a 7.91 goals against average. Meanwhile, in 2011, the Falcons allowed just 8.62 goals per game en route to a 6-7 overall record. A 1985 graduate of the United States Military Academy, Koehler was honored with the General George Ruhlen Award (Most Improved) in 1984 and the General James V. Hartinger Award (Most Valuable Player) in 1985. Koehler was also an honorable All-America goalkeeper in his senior campaign. Following his graduation from West Point, Koehler was commissioned as a second lieutenant in Field Artillery. His first permanent assignment was at Fort Carson, Colo., where he spent four years as a fire support officer and a fire direction officer.

After returning from Germany, Koehler earned his master’s degree in kinesiology at Indiana University and then returned to West Point to teach in the physical education department. While at West Point, he also served as the volunteer assistant lacrosse coach for three years. A native of Long Island, N.Y., Koehler was stationed at Fort Hood, Texas, for two years prior to coming to the Academy.

2014 AIR FORCE LACROSSE


32 2013 SEASON REVIEW In 2013, the Air Force lacrosse team had one of its strongest seasons in recent years, compiling a 7-7 overall record and a 2-5 mark in the powerful ECAC Lacrosse League. All but one of the Falcons’ conference losses were decided by a single goal, including an overtime road loss to national semifinalist Denver. Air Force played five games against nationally ranked teams, all of which finished the season in the top 10, and the Falcons’ 15-10 win over then-12th-ranked Lehigh was its first victory over a top-15 team since 2007. Leading the 2013 lacrosse squad were junior captains Mike Crampton, Bryan Price and Erik Smith, who all earned second-team All-ECAC honors. The Falcons opened the season on Feb. 8, when they visited North Carolina, ranked fourth in the preseason coaches poll. Air Force had a strong start, holding an early lead against the Tar Heels before going into the intermission with an 8-6 deficit. However, the Falcons were outscored 8-2 in the second half, as they dropped a 16-8 decision. Junior Tommy McKee was the leading scorer for Air Force, registering his first hat trick of the year. Air Force was back in action just two days later, with a road game at first-year program High Point. The Falcons dominated offensively against the Panthers, earning a 14-4 victory. Crampton led the way with four goals versus High Point, while McKee recorded his second-straight hat trick. On Feb. 16, the Falcons played their third-straight road game to start the season, this time picking up an 11-9 victory at Rutgers. Air Force, which led for most of the game, fought off a rally by the Scarlet Knights to post its first win over Rutgers since 1995. The Falcons outshot the Scarlet Knights, 48-29, for the game and committed just 11 turnovers, compared to 22 for Rutgers. Crampton notched his second-straight hat trick, leading the Falcons’ offense with three goals and an assist, while sophomore Keith Dreyer added a goal and two assists. The next weekend, Air Force headed to the Frontier Airlines Face-Off Classic, hosted by the University of Denver. In their first game of the weekend, the Falcons earned a 10-8 victory over 2012 NCAA participant Canisius. After going into the intermission tied at 4-4, Air Force pulled away after the break, outshooting Canisius 30-15 in the second half. Dreyer was the Falcons’ leading scorer against the Golden Griffins, registering his first hat trick of the season. Meanwhile, Price led Air Force at the face-off X, winning 9-of-10 draws, and senior goalkeeper Austin Fox tallied 12 saves. Meanwhile, inclement weather forced a change in venue for Air Force’s contest against 12th-ranked Lehigh, as Sunday’s tournament games were moved to the Academy to be played in the Holaday Athletic Center. The Falcons were able to avoid any distractions and came up with one of their best performances of the year, knocking off the Mountain Hawks, 15-10. McKee tallied a game-high four goals, Crampton added three goals and two assists and freshman Christopher Allen recorded his first career hat trick to pace the Falcons’ offense. In addition, Fox notched a then-season-best 14 saves in the win over Lehigh, as Air Force defeated a top-15 team for the first time since 2007. At the conclusion of the tournament, four Air Force players were named to the Frontier Airlines Face-Off Classic all-tournament team. Representing the Falcons on the all-tournament team were McKee, Smith, freshman defenseman Alex Warden and Fox. McKee scored five goals on the weekend, including a game-high four in the Falcons’ upset win over Lehigh, while Smith added five points (3g, 2a) and a team-high 12 ground balls, as well as a .615 winning percentage at the face-off X. Warden helped anchor the Falcons’ defense, picking up six ground balls and scoring his first career goal, while Fox registered 26 saves in two games, including a season-high 14 stops versus Lehigh. Meanwhile, Price became the first Air Force player on the season to earn ECAC weekly honors, as he was named the ECAC Lacrosse League Specialist of the Week on Feb. 25 for his performance at the Frontier Airlines Face-Off Classic. He was the Falcons’ leader at the face-off X for the weekend, winning 15-of-23 draws (.652) in two games. His standout performance came in Air Force’s win over Canisius, as he won 9-of-10 faceoffs in the game. Price, who also picked up nine ground balls on the weekend, added his first career goal versus Lehigh, the score which proved to be the game-winner against the 12th-ranked Mountain Hawks. With the Falcons jumping out to a 4-1 mark, the team’s best season start since 1997, Air Force officially opened its home slate against another first-year program, welcoming Marquette to Falcon Stadium on March 2. However, the Falcons got out to a sluggish start against the Golden Eagles, trailing 2-1 at the half before dropping an 8-6 contest. McKee carried the Falcons’ offense, tallying five of Air Force’s six goals, with the other score coming from Crampton. Meanwhile, Smith

led the Falcons’ efforts at the face-off X, winning 9-of-10 draws against the Golden Eagles. Air Force opened its conference slate on March 9, when it traveled to Louisville, Ky., to face Bellarmine. After falling into a 6-0 first-half deficit, the Falcons eventually tied the game thanks to an eightgoal scoring output in the third quarter. However, Air Force was unable to take over the lead, dropping an 11-10 decision to the Knights. Dreyer scored a season-high five points (2g, 3a), while sophomore Ryland De Pol, junior Kyle Cassady and Crampton each added two goals. The Falcons were back in action on March 16, when they faced eighth-ranked Loyola Maryland in a neutral-site game, playing the defending national champions, in the Whitman’s Sampler Mile High Classic, held at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium in Denver. While the Falcons trailed 5-3 at the half, the Greyhounds were able to pull away after the break, earning a 13-7 win. Allen matched a career-high with four points (2g, 2a) to lead Air Force, while Crampton added two goals. Air Force faced another top-10 opponent in its next game, visiting fourth-ranked conference foe Denver on the road. While the game was originally scheduled for March 23, inclement weather forced the game to be postponed until March 26. The Falcons, who were in the midst of their spring break, made the most of their extra time off, challenging the Pioneers early on. Air Force shut Denver out in the opening period, leading 2-0, before the Pioneers were able to tie the score before the intermission. Denver took its first lead of the game at the 13:37 mark in the third period, while Crampton’s third score of the day tied the game once more. Following another Pioneer goal, Dreyer tallied his first man-down score of the year to tie the game at 6-6 with just over six minutes remaining in the third quarter. The Falcons then broke the stalemate with a tally from McKee in the first two minutes of the final stanza, while back-to-back scores from Smith and De Pol gave Air Force a 9-6 advantage, its largest of the game, with just under nine minutes remaining. However, Denver answered with four straight scores to regain the lead with 4:18 on the clock. A crucial forced turnover by Air Force with a minute and a half remaining gave the Falcons another opportunity to score, and Smith capitalized, getting an assist from Allen to tie the score with 17 seconds remaining, sending the contest into overtime. Denver won the opening face-off of the extra period, setting up the winning goal for Wesley Berg, who scored three of the final Pioneer goals in regulation. Crampton was the leading scorer for the Falcons, registering his fourth hat trick of the year, while Allen added two goals and an assist. Air Force committed just nine turnovers in the game, compared to 16 by Denver. However, the Pioneers held the advantage on face-offs, winning 15-of-25, including 11-of-15 after the intermission. Air Force was back on the road for its next game, a conference match-up with Michigan on March 30. The Falcons were able to snap their four-game losing streak, with a 10-6 win over the Wolverines. After Michigan scored the first goal

2014 AIR FORCE LACROSSE


2013 SEASON REVIEW 33 of the contest, the Falcons went on a 9-0 run to take control of the game. Crampton notched his second-consecutive hat trick, his fifth of the season, to lead the Falcons’ offense, while McKee, Smith and Dreyer added two goals each. Meanwhile, Fox tallied a career-high-tying 15 saves against the Wolverines and Price won 9-of-11 face-offs for the game. For his performance in the Denver and Michigan games, sophomore Kyle O’Brien was named the ECAC Lacrosse League Co-Defensive Player of the Week. For the week, he recorded a team-high 12 ground balls and three caused turnovers. His caused turnover versus fourth-ranked Denver came at a crucial time, as it set up one last offensive opportunity for the Falcons, who were able to score the gametying goal which forced overtime. Meanwhile, O’Brien notched seven ground balls and two caused turnovers against Michigan and scored his third point of the year, an assist to Price, which capped off a 9-0 run by the Falcons. The Falcons went out of conference for their next game, traveling to Macon, Ga., to face Mercer on April 6. Air Force, which outshot the Bears 50-28 for the game, opened the contest with a 4-0 advantage, and led by as many as seven points en route to a 15-9 win. Crampton, who had a hand in each of the Falcons’ first seven scores, had a stellar performance against Mercer, scoring a career-best 11 points (3g, 8a) to lead Air Force. Registering his third-consecutive hat trick, Crampton registered a careerhigh eight assists versus the Bears, while De Pol had a breakout game for the Falcons as well, scoring a career-best five points, including his first career hat trick. Cassady and Smith each added two goals and an assist, McKee pitched in two goals and Dreyer tallied two assists. With his standout performance at Mercer, Crampton was named the ECAC Lacrosse League Co-Offensive Player of the Week, as well as the Air Force Co-Athlete of the Week honors. In addition to posting career-best marks in points and assists, Crampton reached the 100-career point plateau with his performance, becoming the first Falcon to reach the mark since 2009. He also more than doubled his assist output for the season after entering the Mercer game with seven assists. Crampton’s eight assists against the Bears were the most by an Air Force in a single game since 1990. Air Force concluded its road slate on April 13, with a visit to ECAC foe Fairfield. It was another heart-breaking loss for the Falcons, who came up short in a 9-8 decision against the Stags. Air Force was able to come back from a four-goal first-half deficit, eventually tying the game with a score from Smith in the final minute, but the Stags tallied the game-winner with 33 seconds on the clock. Allen led the Falcons’ offense with his third hat trick of the year, while Cassady pitched in two goals. For his performance against the Stags, Allen was named the ECAC Lacrosse League Rookie of the Week, earning his first career weekly honor.

The Falcons returned home for their final two games of the season, beginning with a match-up against 12th-ranked ECAC rival Ohio State on April 20. Again, Air Force came up short by a single goal, falling to the Buckeyes, 10-9. The Falcons held a narrow 7-6 lead at the half, but Ohio State outscored Air Force 3-0 in the third period, with all three scores coming from All-American Logan Schuss. Crampton and Dreyer each tallied four points to lead the Falcons, with Crampton registering his seventh hat trick of the year, while Dreyer recorded three assists. Air Force wrapped up the season on April 27 with a home game versus Hobart. Led by a career-high four goals from Smith, the Falcons picked up a 16-12 victory over the Statesmen to close out the year with a 7-7 overall record. After a slow start, Air Force was able to take a 3-0 lead into the second quarter. While Hobart was able to get back within one point twice in the second period, Air Force closed out the half with four unanswered scores, including a fallingdown goal from De Pol with just four seconds remaining, to go into the intermission with an 8-3 advantage. The Falcons continued to pull away after the break, and took a 12-4 lead midway through the third period. The Statesmen notched three of the next four goals, including a pair of man-up scores, but an extra-man goal by Smith with just under two minutes in the quarter put Air Force up 14-7. Hobart made a strong push in the final stanza, outscoring Air Force 5-1 in the first five and a half minutes of the fourth quarter, with the Falcons’ lone goal coming from freshman short-stick defensive midfielder Brenden Coleman. However, the Statesmen were unable to get any closer, as De Pol’s man-up score at the 7:29 mark proved to be the final goal at the game. The Falcons were called for eight penalties in the game, as Hobart scored on 4-of8 extra-man opportunities. Meanwhile, Fox, playing in his final game for the Falcons, recorded 14 saves, including eight in the opening half. Following the Hobart game, two Air Force players were recognized in the ECAC weekly awards, with Smith earning ECAC Lacrosse League Offensive Player of the Week accolades, while Warden was named the ECAC Lacrosse League Rookie of the Week. Smith, who recorded a career-best four goals against the Statesmen, notched his first hat trick of the season, while also picking up four ground balls and winning 4-of-8 face-offs as the Falcons’ secondary face-off man. Meanwhile, Warden was a defensive leader for Air Force against Hobart, recording a careerhigh five ground balls and a caused turnover. At the conclusion of the regular season, the ECAC all-conference teams were announced. Earning all-conference recognition for the Falcons were Crampton (attack), Smith (midfield) and Price (specialist), who were each named second-team selections at their respective positions. Meanwhile, Warden earned recognition on the ECAC All-Rookie team as a defensive selection. Several awards were announced at the Falcons’ end-of-year banquet. Earning the team’s top award as most valuable player was Crampton. He led the Falcons’ offense in 2013 with 53 points, including a team-best 34 goals. His 34 goals are the most in a single season for an Air Force player since 1998, while his 53 points are the most for a Falcon since 1994. Crampton, who registered hat tricks in five of Air Force’s last six games and eight total on the season, ranks among the nation’s leaders in both points per game and goals per game. He also reached the 100-point career plateau with his personal-best 11 points in a win at Mercer, becoming just the fifth Air Force player in the past 20 years to reach the mark and just the second to do so as a junior. Smith was tabbed the team’s offensive MVP, while junior Matt Puleo was named the defensive MVP. Smith had a standout season for the Falcons, finishing the year with 29 points, including a career-best 21 goals. The do-everything midfielder scored three man-up goals on the season, took nearly half of the Falcons’ face-offs and earned the team’s Ground Ball Award for the third-straight year, picking up 57 ground balls on the season. Meanwhile, Puleo was an anchor for the Falcons’ defense in his third year as a starting close defenseman. Stepping into the shoes of four-year allconference defender Dayton Gilbreath, Puleo recorded 23 ground balls on the year and ranked second on the

2014 AIR FORCE LACROSSE


34 2013 SEASON REVIEW team with 17 caused turnovers. Sharing Rookie of the Year honors were Allen and Warden. Allen, a midfielder who started the final seven games of the season, finished fifth on the team in total points (23) and was fourth in goals scored (18). In addition, he was the Falcons’ third-leading scorer in conference games with 12 goals and three assists. On defense, Warden was a standout as a starter in his first season with the Falcons. He led Air Force with 19 caused turnovers on the year, while also recording 29 ground balls and two points (1g, 1a). Garnering Most Improved honors was Fox, in his second year as the Falcons’ starting goalkeeper. He made huge strides in 2013, recording the highest save total (148) and save percentage (.530) for an Air Force player since 2006. Meanwhile, Price was the recipient of the Face-Off Award for the second-straight season, posting a 54.5 win percentage at the face-off X, ranking 22nd in the nation, while also ranking third on the team with 40 ground balls on the season. Earning the Falcons’ Unsung Hero Award, granted to the player or players who contribute most to the team’s success without getting the recognition, were Cassady and freshman Brenden Coleman. Cassady, a three-year starter at midfield for the Falcons, had his best offensive production in 2013, recording a career-high 20 points (16g, 4a) as one of Air Force’s most consistent performers. Meanwhile, Coleman made his mark as the Falcons’ top short-stick defensive midfielder, registering 17 ground balls and four caused turnovers, along with four points (2g, 2a). Senior Conor Hogan was the recipient of the Iron Bolt Award, given to the athlete who demonstrates the highest commitment to the strength and conditioning program. Meanwhile, junior Taylor Hanley was honored with the Pace Weber Award, which is presented yearly as a tribute to C1C Pace Weber, who perished along with his instructor in a T-3 flight training accident here at the Academy. Voted on by members of the team, the recipient is an individual who most exemplifies the characteristics by which Pace Weber lived his life. Several Falcons earned academic honors as well, with seven players named to the ECAC All-Academic team. Senior Pat Harrison earned his third academic all-conference selection, while junior Michael Curran received his second honor. Meanwhile, senior Dan Schonfeld, junior Matt Scott and freshmen Brett Dadiego, Matthew Duenes and Doug Gouchoe were all first-time ECAC AllAcademic team honorees.

ABOUT THE ECAC

2013 ECAC AWARDS

The ECAC is the nation's largest athletic and the only multi-divisional conference with approximately 300 Divisions I, II, and III colleges and universities from Maine to North Carolina and westerly to Illinois. Established in 1938, the ECAC, a non-profit service organization, sponsors nearly 100 championships in 37 men's and women's sports, assigns more than 4,400 officials in 12 sports, administers nine affiliate sports organizations and six playing leagues and recognizes more than 2,000 student-athletes through the public relations arm of the conference. The ECAC serves as the primary conference for select members in the sports of men's and women's ice hockey, and men's lacrosse.

ABOUT THE ECAC LACROSSE LEAGUE One of the top-ranked conferences in Division I men’s lacrosse, the ECAC Lacrosse League began competition in 2000 and enjoyed immediate success. In the league’s 14-year history, members have earned 27 NCAA tournament berths. A league team has advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals in 10 of the last 13 years. In 2013, three ECAC members earned berths into the NCAA Tournament. Denver and Ohio State each advanced to the quarterfinals, with the Pioneers reaching the national semifinals. In 2012, Loyola captured the ECAC’s first-ever Division I lacrosse national championship. In 2011, Denver advanced to the national semifinals, the first time that an ECAC school had advanced past the first round since 2007. In 2006, Massaschusetts played in the national championship game. In 2003, the ECAC had all four of its teams qualify for the NCAA tournament, comprising a quarter of the 16-team field. The champion of the ECAC Lacrosse League earns an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. The league champion is determined through a playoff tournament which includes the top four teams of the round-robin regular season schedule. The ECAC Lacrosse League was established in 1999 with charter members Georgetown, Massachusetts, Navy, Penn State, Rutgers, Stony Brook and UMBC. Stony Brook left the league after the 2001 season, while the 2003 season was the final year in the ECAC for Navy and UMBC. In 2005, Hobart, Loyola and St. John’s joined the ECAC, while Fairfield joined the league in 2006. The league saw a completely new alignment in 2010, with the departure of Georgetown, Massachusetts, Penn State, Rutgers and St. John’s, and the addition of Air Force, Bellarmine, Denver, Ohio State and Quinnipiac. Quinnipiac departed after one season, while Michigan, which became an affiliate member of the ECAC in 2012, became a full member in 2013. With the departure of Denver, Hobart and Loyola Maryland following the 2013 season, the ECAC Lacrosse League sits at five members—Air Force, Bellarmine, Fairfield, Michigan and Ohio State—in its final season of competition.

PACE WEBER MEMORIAL AWARD 47 The Falcons dedicated the 1998 season to the memory of Pace Weber, a three-year letterwinner on the lacrosse team. Pace and instructor pilot Capt. Glen Comeaux died when their T-3A Firefly training plane crashed on June 25, 1997, in Colorado Springs. The Falcons created an award in his honor that will be given each year to the person who best exemplifies Pace’s spirit. The award can go to anyone associated with the Falcon lacrosse program. The plaque reads: This award is presented yearly as a tribute to C1C Pace Weber, who perished along with his instructor in a T-3 flight training accident, here at the Academy. Voted on by members of the varsity team, the recipient is an individual associated with the USAFA varsity lacrosse team, who most exemplifies the characteristics by which Pace lived his life.

“Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay awhile, leaving footprints on our hearts ... and we are never the same.” The Falcon lacrosse team would like to remember the following lacrosse team family members who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country: Maj. Victor Apodaca, Jr., Class of 1961 1st Lt. George Bruns, Class of 1964 1st Lt. Russell Voris, Class of 1968 1st Lt. Michael Sands, Class of 1971

Maj. Bartle Jackson, Class of 1980 1st Lt. Daniel Sullivan, Class of 1982 C1C Pace Weber, Class of 1998

54 LACROSSE FACILITIES

FALCON STADIUM This season, the Air Force lacrosse team will play all of its contests in Falcon Stadium, the site of Air Force’s first-ever victory over service academy rival Army. Falcon Stadium was built in the fall of 1962. The stadium, which was built in a natural bowl, has a capacity of 46,692 and stands in the base of the Rampart Range of the Rocky Mountains. Over the years, Falcon Stadium has seen numerous improvements. In 1991, the Academy installed nine skyboxes and remodeled the existing press box. In 2002, the Academy added permanent lights, while in 2004, a new scoreboard was installed. Prior to the 2006 season, FieldTurf was installed at the stadium. The new turf covers 84,480 square feet with an additional 26,520 square feet of native grass surrounding it. The stadium was originally built solely for football, but several non-athletic events, such as the Academy's annual graduation, are conducted there.

CADET LACROSSE STADIUM The primary practice facility for the Air Force lacrosse team is the Cadet Lacrosse Stadium, which can also be used for competition. Home to the Falcons’ JV football team in the fall, the Cadet Lacrosse Stadium was refurbished with a new scoreboard for the 2009 season, while new improvements will continue to be made over the next several years.

HOLADAY ATHLETIC CENTER The Holaday Athletic Center, Air Force’s newest athletic facility was completed in July 2011. The 92,000 square-foot center houses a regulation-sized field that can accommodate football, lacrosse and soccer, in addition to many other athletic activities. Cadet athletic development and performance will be enhanced through reduced weather delays, increased practice time, and improved replication of game conditions that the facility provides. “This athletic facility will allow our cadets to safely train all year-round,” says Dr. Mueh, the Director of Athletics. “This is a tremendous step forward for the athletics program and the Academy in terms of providing vital support for our cadets’ development and success.” The new building is named for Bart Holaday, Class of ‘65, and his wife, Lynn, who committed $5 million toward the construction of the new indoor athletic training facility. It marked the largest gift from a graduate to the Academy in the institution’s history.

2014 AIR FORCE LACROSSE


AIR FORCE ACADEMY 55 The United States Air Force Academy offers a four-year program of instruction and experience designed to educate, train and inspire men and women to become officers of character, motivated to lead the United States Air Force in service to our nation. Each cadet graduates with a bachelor of science degree and a commission as a second lieutenant in the Air Force. COURSE OF STUDY Cadets are exposed to a balanced curriculum that provides the knowledge, skills and responsibilities essential to a career Air Force officer. The entire USAFA experience is integrated and mapped to achieve a set of desired outcomes in every graduate. The core academic curriculum includes courses in basic sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities. Cadets take additional elective courses to complete requirements for one of 32 major areas of study. About 50 percent of the cadets complete majors in science and engineering; the remainder graduate in the social sciences and humanities. Some of the most popular majors include management, aeronautical engineering, foreign area studies, history, behavioral science, civil engineering, astronautical engineering, electrical engineering and engineering mechanics. FACULTY COMPOSITION The majority of the Academy’s faculty members, more than 500 total, are Air Force officers. They are selected primarily from career-officer volunteers who have established outstanding records of performance and dedication. Each has at least a master’s degree and more than 55 percent have doctorates or other terminal degrees in their field of study. About 30 percent of the faculty are civilians who bring great depth of disciplinary and educational expertise and provide academic stability and continuity. Faculty members are intensely focused on cadet learning as an integral part of their officer development. The Air Force Academy has been ranked No. 1 in the nation for the most accessible and involved faculty. To provide greater contributions by a diverse faculty, the Academy has several distinguished visiting professors and endowed professors who serve one or more years. Officers from other services, as well as officers from allied countries are also members of the faculty. Distinguished civilian and military lecturers also share their expertise with the cadets during the academic year. ATHLETIC PROGRAM The Academy’s athletic program is designed to improve physical fitness, teach athletic skills and develop leadership qualities. To achieve its goals, the Academy offers some of the most extensive physical education, intramural sports and intercollegiate athletic programs in the nation. Cadets take at least three different physical education courses each year. MILITARY EDUCATION AND TRAINING An air, space and cyberspace-oriented military education, training and leadership program begins with basic cadet training and continues throughout the four years. Seniors are responsible for the organizational leadership of the cadet wing, while juniors and sophomores seek to develop team and interpersonal leadership and instructional skills. Cadets are projected into as many active leadership roles as possible to prepare them to be effective Air Force officers.

Fundamental concepts of military organization -- drill, ethics, honor, Air Force heritage and physical training -- are emphasized the first summer during basic cadet training. Freshmen then study the military role in United States society as well as the mission and organization of the Air Force. Sophomores receive instruction in communication skills and juniors study the combat and operational aspects of the Air Force. The Academy offers courses in flying, navigation, soaring and parachuting, building from basic skills to instructor duties. Some cadets may fly light aircraft with the Cadet Flying Team. Summer training for cadets is divided into three, three-week training periods. There are a variety of programs available and each cadet is required to complete two training periods each summer with leave during the other period. All new cadets take six weeks of basic cadet training in their first summer. Combat survival training is a required three-week program during cadets’ second summer. For other secondsummer training periods, cadets have options such as working with Airmen in an operational unit at an Air Force installation, airborne parachute training, soaring or basic free-fall parachute training. During their last two summers, all cadets are offered leadership training as supervisors or instructors in the summer programs listed above.

HISTORY OF THE ACADEMY In 1948, a board of leading civilian and military educators was appointed to plan the curriculum for an academy that would meet the needs of the newly established Air Force. The board determined that Air Force requirements could not be met by expanding the other service academies and recommended an Air Force Academy be established without delay. In 1949, then Secretary of the Air Force W. Stuart Symington appointed a commission to assist in selecting a site and on April 1, 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower authorized creation of the United States Air Force Academy. After considering 580 sites in 45 states, the commission narrowed the choice to three locations. The summer of 1954, Secretary of the Air Force Harold Talbott selected a site near Colorado Springs, Colo. Colorado contributed $1 million toward purchase of the property. In July 1955, the first Academy class entered interim facilities at Lowry Air Force Base, Denver, while construction began. It was sufficiently completed for occupancy by the cadet wing in late August 1958. Initial construction cost was $142 million. Women entered the Academy on June 28, 1976, as members of the class of 1980.

Extracurricular activities also are an integral part of the education program. The cadet ski club, drum and bugle corps, cadet chorale and forensics are a few of the programs available. NOMINATIONS Nominations to the Academy may be obtained through a congressional sponsor or by meeting eligibility criteria in other categories of competition established by law.

COMMANDER, 10TH AIR BASE WING Col. Stacey Hawkins


DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS 57 ter, an indoor training facility. The $15 million facility was completed in July 2011. Mueh has also been active within the conference and the NCAA. He was recently selected to be part of the NCAA Division I Amateurism Cabinet and has been active on the NCAA’s academics/eligibility compliance cabinet, the men’s golf committee and the region 7 postgraduate scholarship committee. Mueh has been equally active within the conference on various leadership committees. He is currently on the awards and recognition committee and has previously served on the joint council executive committee, and committees on championships, television and sportsmanship.

Dr. Hans J. Mueh is in his 10th year as the director of athletics at the Air Force Academy. A retired Air Force brigadier general, Mueh was vice dean of faculty for two years prior to his retirement from active duty in the summer of 2004. Mueh was heavily involved in Academy athletics before becoming director of athletics. He was the Academy’s faculty athletics representative from 1996-2004 and was a long-time member of the board of directors for the Air Force Academy Athletics Association. Since becoming the director of athletics, Mueh has led the Academy to some remarkable feats. In 2007, the Academy was one of only three schools (Michigan State and Boston College) to reach post-season play in football (2007), men’s basketball and ice hockey (2006-07). It marked the first time a service academy has ever had a team compete in the postseason in all three sports. In addition, under Mueh’s watch the men’s basketball team has played in another NCAA tournament and the National Invitational Tournament’s Final Four. The ice hockey team has won the conference championship and advanced to the NCAA tournament five of the last six years. Mueh was on the selection committee that hired current head coach Frank Serratore and led the Academy’s move into the Atlantic Hockey Association. The football program, the Academy’s flagship sport, has gone through a major overhaul under Mueh. He led the transition from the retirement of the legendary Fisher DeBerry after 23 years at the helm to hiring current head coach Troy Calhoun, a 1989 Academy graduate. Calhoun’s impact was immediate, leading the Falcons to a 9-4 overall mark and a second-place finish in the Mountain West Conference in 2007. The Falcons qualified for their first bowl game in seven years, playing in the Armed Forces Bowl in 2007. The program has gone to a school-record six consecutive bowl games and averaged over 9,000 bowl tickets sold. Mueh has been just as successful behind the scenes with the administration of the department. Mueh restructured the department with an internal/external model that has streamlined resources and made the department more effective from top to bottom. In addition, the athletic department made the transition to a federally-chartered non-profit organization in the summer of 2013, which will lead to more fundraising opportunities. Mueh was instrumental in the USAFA Endowment and the announcement of the Holaday Athletic Cen-

Before assuming his duties as vice dean at the Academy, Mueh was permanent professor and head of the department of chemistry at the Academy, a position he held since October 1987 where he oversaw the annual design and instruction of 25 undergraduate courses for 1,500 cadets annually. Mueh was born Jan. 8, 1944, in Celle, Germany, and emigrated to the United States in 1951. He entered the Air Force in 1962 as a member of the Academy’s eighth graduating class, and graduated with a bachelor of science degree in chemistry in 1966. While at the Academy, Mueh was a two-year letterwinner in soccer as a goalie. He still holds the Academy record for saves in a game with 30, accomplishing it twice in 1965 against North Carolina and Benedictine. In his junior and senior years, Mueh helped the Falcons to the Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Soccer League championship and quarterfinal berths in the NCAA tournament. He was a first-team all-league selection in 1965.

chemistry from 1970-72. He also served as assistant soccer coach and played semi-pro soccer with the Aurora Internationals in Denver during those two years, leading the Internationals to the Colorado state title in 1971. He volunteered for duty in Vietnam and served as an intelligence officer in Saigon, Republic of Vietnam and at Nakhon Phanom RTAB, Thailand, in 1972 and 1973. After earning his doctorate degree, Mueh returned to the Academy in 1976 as an associate professor of chemistry. He remained at the Academy except for a stint in 1985-86 as the special assistant for technical matters at the Defense Intelligence Agency at the Pentagon. In 1986, he assumed the position of acting head, department of chemistry, before being selected for his position of permanent professor and head of the department of chemistry in 1987. As faculty athletics representative, he was active in both the Western Athletic Conference and Mountain West Conference, and was the Academy’s representative on the transition team to form the new MWC, the only faculty athletics representative on the team. He competes in golf, racquetball, handball and tennis, and has promoted Air Force Academy intercollegiate sports throughout his tenure, beginning with work as chairman of the hockey eligibility committee, officer representative to the men’s golf team and five years as the officer representative to the football team. Mueh is married to the former Sally Flax of Cincinnati, Ohio. They have three children: Kristine, Kurt and Deborah.

Following graduation, Mueh completed two assignments in intelligence before attending the University of Wisconsin where he earned his master’s degree in chemistry in 1970. He later earned a doctorate degree in chemistry from Wisconsin in 1976 as a distinguished graduate. He has also completed Squadron Officer School, Air Command and Staff College and Air War College. Between earning the two degrees, Mueh returned to the Academy as an instructor in the department of

2014 AIR FORCE LACROSSE


58 AIR FORCE ATHLETICS Few schools in the country have an athletic program as extensive as the Air Force Academy’s. The goals of the athletic program are to enhance the physical conditioning of all cadets, to develop the physical skills necessary for officership, to teach leadership in a competitive environment and to build character. There are three subdivisions of the athletic program: intercollegiate athletics, intramurals and physical education. The intercollegiate program has 17 men’s and 10 women’s NCAA-sanctioned teams, facing some of the top competition in the nation. Men’s teams are football, baseball, basketball, ice hockey, cross-country, fencing, golf, gymnastics, indoor and outdoor track, lacrosse, rifle, soccer, swimming and diving, tennis, water polo and wrestling. The Academy fields women’s teams in basketball, cross-country, fencing, gymnastics, rifle, indoor and outdoor track, swimming and diving, soccer, tennis and volleyball. In addition, the Academy sponsors two non-NCAA programs; boxing and cheerleading.

Col. Bart Weiss Vice Athletic Director

Jim Trego Senior Associate AD

The majority of the Academy’s men’s and women’s programs compete at the NCAA Division I level in the Mountain West Conference. The Falcons compete in this conference against teams from Boise State, Colorado State, Fresno State, Hawai’i (football only), Nevada, New Mexico, San Diego State, San Jose State, UNLV, Utah State and Wyoming. All sports also compete against nonconference opponents, including many nationally ranked teams. The football team competes annually for the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy, which is emblematic of service academy football supremacy. The Falcons have won the trophy 18 times, which is more than any other academy. The USAFA Cadet Field House is one of the most impressive buildings in the country. It’s a modern, versatile structure with seemingly endless uses. The $5.6 million building is five stories high and 396 feet by 426 feet, the size of three football fields laid side by side. The structure is divided into three areas--basketball arena, ice hockey arena and multipurpose area. The three sections have a combined seating capacity of more than 9,000.
