AMERICA’S BEST COLORADO SPRINGS WAS RANKED IN 2007 AS THE NO. 1 BEST BIG CITY (OVER 300,000) TO LIVE BY MONEY MAGAZINE BASED ON QUALITY OF LIFE, CLIMATE, SOCIAL ACTIVITIES, CLEANLINESS AND SAFETY. The immortal words of an eastern visitor in 1893 live perpetually at the base of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. When teacher and poet Katherine Lee Bates took a wagon ride to the summit of Pikes Peak she was inspired to write a song that is still recited today. Her view from atop the 14,110-foot peak was the basis of her song “America the Beautiful”. The history of Colorado Springs traverses back to 1870 when Gen. William Jackson Palmer first visited the region and was captivated by its grandeur. A year later, he began designing his city of dreams. From its beginning on the corner of Pikes Peak and Cascade Avenues in downtown Colorado Springs, the city has grown more than 183 square miles and to nearly 400,000 people in the city and 600,000 in the metro area. Colorado Springs is known nationally for its natural attractions. The Garden of the Gods, the area’s No. 1 natural attraction, is a majestic out-cropping of red sandstone rocks which are more than 300 million years old. Colorado Springs is also home to the Pikes Peak Highway, a 19-mile drive up the world’s highest toll road. The area’s No. 1 man-made attraction is the Air Force Academy’s Cadet Chapel. Another major attraction is the Broadmoor Hotel and Resort. Built in the early 1900s, this five-star resort, hosted the 1995 U.S. Women’s Open Golf Championship and the 2008 Senior U.S. Open, and is nestled into the base of Cheyenne Mountain. The Pikes Peak region is home to the nation’s only mountain zoo. The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, with an elevation of more than 6,800-feet, has received several changes in the past two years. For the outdoors enthusiast, the city and the state offer a plethora of recreational activities. A short drive to the northwest features some of the nation’s finest ski resorts, including the cities of Vail and Aspen. A short jaunt to the southwest or northwest will find some of the best white-water rafting, fishing, hiking and cycling that the country has to offer. Valuing its past with a vision for the future, Colorado Springs is truly a city with unparalleled culture, recreation, growth and opportunity in the 21st century.

HOCKEY FACILITIES Specialized Weight Training Among the Best in the Nation

The Air Force hockey locker room was completed in the fall of 2005. The new locker room is nearly double the size of the old room and features 28 pro-style lockers with large corner areas for the goaltenders. Each team member also has a locker in a changing area that is used for military and civilian clothes. The team room, with internet access, gives team members an environment to work on academics, watch a movie or relax with teammates. The audio/visual set-up is second to none with three flat screen TVs, DVD players and more. The TVs and DVD players are also equipped to plug into the team’s computerized video-editing equipment to watch film and have team meetings.

Right: A section of the Air Force hockey hallway has been dedicated to the former Falcons who have, or are, flying in the United States Air Force. Numerous former players have gone on to flying careers and this is a small sampling of those who have moved from the ice to the cockpit.

The primary goal of the strength and conditioning program is to improve athletic performance and reduce the opportunity for injury. Athletes are provided year-round sport-specific training programs, based on both the specific demands of the sport and positions they play. These programs are designed to bring athletes to a peak in performance during the competitive season. The Olympic style exercises (cleans, jerks, snatches) are emphasized in each training session because of the positive effect they have on athletic performance. A priority is placed on free weight multi-joint exercises because of their higher degree of specificity to athletic performance. Because most sports are power oriented, training programs are designed to bring about maximum increases in power. An emphasis is placed not only on increases in strength and power, but on improving athleticism as a result of participation in the strength and conditioning program. This is accomplished using a variety of resistance training activities, as well as participation in speed/plyometric training programs. All athletes are tested on a regular basis to evaluate increases in strength and power, as well as to evaluate the effectiveness of the training program. The strength and conditioning facilities at the Air Force Academy are among the finest in the country, and athletes at the Academy have established a tradition of training with intensity and dedication. It is this combination of great facilities and dedication that allows athletes at the Academy to compete at a high level. Falcon athletes began their first year in the Falcon Athletic Center in 2003. The new weight facility is 23,000 square feet, nearly double the size of the previous facility. The new weight room features 48 multi-station platforms, allowing the athletes to perform a majority of their workout (cleans, squats, bench, etc.) at one station. In addition, the facility also has 48 dumbbell platforms to accommodate the dumbbell exercises athletes perform as part of their training, and a 40-yard running track with built-in electronic timing so that the athletes may measure their running speed on a regular basis.

HEAD COACH FRANK SERRATORE A short conversation with coach Frank Serratore makes your pulse race a little faster. His enthusiasm and energy for Air Force hockey are that powerful. As the fourth head coach in the 43 years of Air Force hockey, Serratore was in his office less than a week when he pointed out what it would take to turn the program around. “We want to be the hardest working team in the country,” Serratore said. “We want to have a team full of over-achievers. Not everyone is blessed with outstanding ability, but everyone can work hard and play with pride and spirit.” Serratore enters his 15th season at Air Force with a 234-239-43 record at the Academy. He has an overall mark of 283-331-52 in 18 seasons as a college head coach. Not only has Serratore turned the Falcon program around, he has turned it into a legitimate national contender with four conference championships and four NCAA appearances in the last five years. Last year, the Falcons recovered from a slow start to win its fourth AHA title in five years. The Falcons went 9-2-3 in the final 14 regular season games to earn the No. 2 overall seed. Air Force blanked the regular-season champion, RIT, 1-0, in the championship game. A 2-1 overtime loss to topseed Yale in the NCAA Tournament ended the Falcons’ season at 20-12-6. The 2009-10 season was the only one in the last five years that the Falcons watched the NCAA Tournament at home. The Falcons swept Army in the AHA quarterfinals at home but fell on a late goal to Sacred Heart in the AHA semifinals. AFA finished the season 16-15-6 overall and third in the AHA. The 2008-09 season proved to be the best in school history with a schoolrecord 28 wins, another league championship and the Academy’s first-ever NCAA Tournament victory. Air Force opened the season with a schoolrecord 13 straight wins and rose to No. 10 in the nation, the highest in Academy history. Win No. 13 was a 4-1 win over third-ranked Colorado College to end a 24-year drought vs. the Tigers. As the No. 1 seed in the AHA Final Four, AFA rolled over Bentley and Mercyhurst with back-to-back shutouts to win its third straight title. The first round of the NCAA East Regional put the Falcons against third-ranked Michigan. Andrew Volkening made 43 saves as the Falcons earned a 2-0 win. Air Force came within a whisker of the Frozen Four, but 10th-ranked Vermont defeated Air Force in double overtime on a goal that was awarded on video review. Serratore led Air Force to 21 wins in 2007-08 en route to the second AHA championship and NCAA Tournament berth. Air Force was 21-12-6 overall and finished third in the league. At the AHA Final Five, AFA defeated RIT, 5-0, in the semifinals. The Falcons then needed double-overtime to beat Mercyhurst, 5-4, in the championship game on a goal by Josh Frider. The win sent the Falcons to the NCAA Tournament but second-ranked Miami-Ohio ended the Falcons’ season with a 3-2 overtime loss. In 2006-07, Air Force won its first-ever conference championship and trip to the NCAA Tournament. AFA faced Minnesota in the West Regional, the overall No. 1 seed in the tournament, and led the Gophers, 3-1, with just over eight minutes left in the third period. However, Minnesota scored three goals in a span of 3:36 for a 4-3 win over the Falcons. AFA ended the season with a 19-16-5 overall record and a 13-10-5 mark for fifth place in the AHA. The Falcons became the first service academy team to ever win a conference hockey championship and play in the NCAA Tournament. In his first season at the Academy, Serratore’s disciplined and aggressive style produced more wins than the previous two seasons combined and the first 15-win season in three years. The first-year coach guided the Falcons to a 15-19 overall record. The season could not have ended on a better note as the Falcons swept Army at West Point. His second season was no different as he guided one of the nation’s youngest teams to the best winning percentage in four years at the Academy. In

1999-2000, Serratore led the Falcons to the most wins (19) in 23 years and the first winning season (19-18-2) in 10 years. Serratore juggled an injuryriddled and depleted Falcon lineup throughout the 2000-01 season. The Falcons still posted a 16-17-4 record. A great run at the end of the 2001-02 season capped a 16-16-2 overall record. The Falcons finished fifth in the CHA (6-10-2) and upset fourth-seeded Niagara in the CHA Tournament. In 2002-03, a midseason scoring drought and numerous close losses left the Falcons with a 10-24-3 overall record. Expectations were low as the Falcons were in a rebuilding mode in 2003-04. However, Serratore led the Falcons to a 14-21-2 record, tying the then-school record with 14 Division I wins. The Falcons also defeated two teams that went to the NCAA Tournament (Miami-Ohio and Holy Cross). The 2004-05 season was the second year of a rebuilding process. A 1419-3 overall record again tied the school record for Division I victories. The Falcons placed fifth in the CHA with a 5-14-1 record and then proceeded to upset fourth-seeded Wayne State in a thrilling overtime victory at the CHA Tournament. In 2005-06, the Falcons were 11-20-1 overall, but the team won a school-record eight league games. Serratore, 54, came to the Academy from the Manitoba Moose of the International Hockey League, where he was the director of hockey operations in 1996. He was the head coach and general manager of the Minnesota Moose (before they moved to Manitoba) in 1994 and 1995. Prior to his position in Manitoba, Serratore was the head coach at the University of Denver from 1990-1994. During that time, he led the Pioneers to a 49-91-9 record in four seasons and is credited with rebuilding a struggling Pioneer program. In 1995 and 1997, Pioneer teams which were recruited during his tenure made two NCAA final eight appearances and placed third in the WCHA. Serratore was responsible for improving an out-dated program. The greatest success of his stint in Denver was the increase in attendance. In his first season, home attendance had dipped below 70 percent of the capacity. When he left, DU attendance was up to 93 percent of capacity, one of the top attendance marks in the country. Before taking over the reins at DU, Serratore was the coach and general manager of the Omaha Lancers of the United States Junior Hockey League. In one season, he took over a last-place team and led them to the USHL regular season and playoff championship. The worst-to-first Cinderella season earned Serratore the USHL General Manager of the Year and the Omaha Sportscasters Sportsman of the Year awards in 1990. His other coaching experiences have been as the assistant coach at the University of North Dakota (1987-89), the head coach and general manager of the Rochester Mustangs (1985-87) and the Austin Mavericks (1983-85) of the U.S. Junior Hockey League. During his tenure in the USHL, he won three league championships and was runner-up twice while posting a 247-103-6 record. In 1987, he led Rochester to the USA Hockey national championship. While coaching in the USHL, he was named general manager of the year twice and coach of the year once. Serratore attended Western Michigan University from 1977-79 before earning his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Bemidji State University in 1982. He lettered four years in hockey at the two schools playing goalie. He then earned a master’s degree in athletic administration/physical education from North Dakota in 1994. He played two seasons for the St. Paul Vulcans (USHL) from 1975-77 and had a brief stint with the Nashville South Stars (Central Hockey League) in 1982. The native of Coleraine, Minn., is no stranger to coaching at the Olympic development level. In August 2003, Serratore was the head coach of the United States Under-17 Team that won the gold medal at the Five Nations Tournament in Prievizda, Slovakia. He has coached at two USA Hockey Olympic Sports Festivals and has been the coach of the USA Hockey Development Program since 1985. In 1993, he coached the West team to the silver medal at the U.S. Olympic Sports Festival in San Antonio, Texas. Serratore is married to the former Carol Samec of St. Paul, Minn. They have four children, twin boys Thomas and Timothy (22) and two daughters, Carly (21) and Carina (16).

HEAD COACH FRANK SERRATORE Q: With 18 freshmen and sophomores on the roster, is your approach to this season any different than in previous years with a more veteran team?

A: Despite the fact we have a lot of freshmen and sophomores, I do not consider us a young team, we have a lot of good players who possess a lot of high level Junior “A” experience. I believe our team is deeper this year than it was last year when we won the conference championship in March. Like every year, we must become a great team in every sense of the word if we are to contend again for the AHA Championship. I have a lot of confidence in this group. I am very confident we will eventually become a very good team. If it does not happen early, look for it to happen late. As we have witnessed over the last five years, having it happen late is not be a bad thing.

Q:

Recruiting has always been a top priority for you and your staff. What challenges are involved with recruiting at the Academy?

A:

Recruiting is selling and good salesmen believe in the product they are selling. I believe this philosophy has allowed our staff to do a fine job in recruiting good hockey players to the Air Force Academy. Recruiting at the Division I level has become increasingly difficult over the last several years. There are more college hockey teams now than ever before. The challenges at the Academy are many. When I was at Denver, we were limited to 18 scholarships and it cost over $25,000 (now nearly $50,000) a year to attend school. Here at the Academy, we don’t have the scholarship limitations, but we have different kinds of obstacles to overcome. Aside from the high academic standards set forth by the Academy, our biggest challenge on the recruiting trail is overcoming the perceptions and misinformation that exists about the service academies and the military. We have found that once we identify the right type of prospects, it is important to get into their homes. After educating the prospects and their parents on the Academy, the response is usually tremendous. Recruiting here is not a “sell” job like at most schools; our approach is to educate and present all the facts to a prospect. The opportunities offered at the Academy and afterwards are unlike anywhere in the country. When I first arrived at the Academy, I thought the post-graduation commitment would be a deterrent. I have found that to be just the opposite. The word “commitment,” in this context, has a somewhat negative connotation. A more accurate way to refer to this portion of our package is post-graduate “opportunity,” because this is what it is. The post-graduation opportunity has actually helped our recruiting. Once educated, our recruits and their parents view the commitment as a positive rather than a negative. The career and educational opportunities available to our kids after graduation are astounding. It’s merely a matter of how you choose to approach the commitment, as an anchor or a springboard. One needs only take a look at the success of our graduates to know that it’s truly a springboard.

Q:

What type of player are you looking to bring to Air Force?

A: The type of player we are looking for is the classic overachiever; good student, good athlete and outstanding citizen. Most of the young men we recruit possess the foresight and maturity to see the “big picture” and where they can be five or 10 years down the road. Finding good players for our program is a tough job, but a job that can be done. The fine young men in our locker room are living proof.

Q: Cadet-athletes schedules are so demanding with academics and military life as well as practice, travel and games. How is the coaching staff able to maintain the balance between athletics and Academy life? A: Our guys are first and foremost cadets. Hockey is certainly a big part of their lives and has been since they were little kids in most cases. However, they came to the Academy to develop their leadership skills so they can go out and be a key part of our Air Force. They only play hockey here for four years and then our guys are out doing some great things in the Air Force. They are serving and defending our country and it is an honor to have played a small role in their development while they are here. They have to take care of business in their squadron and in the classroom or they won’t see the ice. It’s that simple. We have some tremendous young men and it is amazing how they can accomplish everything they do. Our guys take great pride in their academics as well. We have a fantastic support staff that helps with this process as well. We have an academic mentoring program that has kept our cadet-athletes ahead of the game by not allowing them to fall behind. The academic, athletic and military demands on our cadet-athletes are incredible. Nowhere, and I mean nowhere, are student-athletes challenged like they are at the service academies. Our athletes carry 20 or more credit hours, participate in athletics and are required to perform a host of military duties. I am often asked the question, how do you inspire your athletes ... my response is simple, my athletes inspire me!

2011-12 Air Force Hockey - Page 15


2010-11 SEASON REVIEW Prior to the 2010-11 season, Air Force was picked to finish third in the Atlantic Hockey Association by the league’s coaches. Head coach Frank Serratore said that if the Falcons finished third, he’d do cartwheels. He knew the road was going to be bumpy, having to replace a four-year starter and all-conference goaltender and featuring 10 freshmen on the roster. After a rough start, Air Force finished strong with eight straight wins to include its fourth AHA championship in the last five years. The Falcons finished the season with a 20-12-6 overall record and won the AHA tournament as the No. 2 seed. Air Force advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the fourth time in school history and, for the fourth time, lost a one-goal game on the national stage. Yale, the No.1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, needed overtime to beat the Falcons, 2-1, in the NCAA East Regional in Bridgeport, Conn. The season could not have gotten off to a more dismal beginning. An 0-4 start included a home loss to the last-place team in the league, the AIC Yellow Jackets. AFA earned its first win the next night, but the 1-5 Falcons would then begin a difficult stretch of games. Air Force’s first signature win of the season came on Nov. 7 when defending league champion, and 2010 Frozen Four participant, RIT came to town. AFA fell behind 2-0 in the first period, but bounced back as Paul Weisgarber tied the game with five minutes remaining and John Kruse scored the game winner with just over three minutes left for a 4-3 win. After a loss to Colorado College, the Falcons hosted third-ranked and undefeated Yale. The Bulldogs spent the majority of the season ranked first in the nation and advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight. But Nov. 14, 2010 is a night that the over-capacity crowd at the Cadet Ice Arena won’t soon forget. Trailing 3-0 in the third, AFA scored four unanswered goals and freshman goalie Jason Torf made 34 saves as the Falcons earned a 4-3 win. From that point on, Air Force was a different team. Beginning with that game, Air Force was 18-6-6 in the final 30 games of the season. A couple of three-point AHA series and a runner-up finish at the Denver Cup sent the Falcons into the holiday break with a 6-7-1 record. The second half of the season started much like the first half. AFA picked up just one point in a series at Sacred Heart, a team that

Lamoureux finished 11th in the regular season. After a 5-1 win over Army at home on national television, AFA couldn’t complete the sweep against the Black Knights. The Falcons again dug themselves into a big hole, but battled back to tie the game at 3-3. Army scored the game-winner with under five minutes remaining to pick up a series split. AFA then took three points from UConn and Canisius, and remained in the middle of the pack in the AHA. The turning point of the season came at league-leading RIT in early February. In the first game, the two teams battled to a scoreless tie in regulation, but the Tigers earned the 1-0 win in the extra frame. The next night was when this team became a team. RIT scored four goals in the first 12 minutes of the game, but Air Force battled back for the 5-5 overtime tie. The next weekend, Air Force hosted third-place Niagara and, despite an overtime loss, picked up a split in the series. That would be the last loss until the NCAA Tournament. Air Force needed to earn some points down the stretch to secure home ice in the playoffs. An unexpected road sweep at Mercyhurst set up a series with second-place Robert Morris and a chance to get a bye in the first round. That bye was clinched as the Falcons earned two 4-2 victories and finished second in the AHA regular season. After a week off, Air Force hosted Sacred Heart in the quarterfinals, March 11-12, at the Cadet Ice Arena. The Falcons out-scored the Pioneers 7-5 in the first game as the two teams combined for 10 goals in the first 26 minutes of the game. The next night was all defense. Torf stopped all 16 shots he faced as the Falcons earned a 4-0 win and an unprecedented fifth straight trip to the AHA Final Four in Rochester, N.Y.

Burnett

The second-seeded Falcons faced the third-seeded Holy Cross Crusaders in the semifinals and again had to come from behind. Trailing 2-1 in the third, Jacques Lamoureux scored twice late for a 3-2 win. The championship game was a winner-take-all showdown between the top two teams in the league as the No. 2 Falcons faced the top-seeded RIT Tigers. In the second period, Tim Kirby drove the length of the ice and Lamoureux scored the game’s only goal. Torf made a career high 40 saves and the Falcons had earned their fourth trip to the NCAA Tournament in the last five years. Lamoureux was named the tournament’s MVP and was joined on the all-tournament team by Torf, Kirby and Scott Mathis.

2010-11 SEASON REVIEW The Falcons’ opponent in the NCAA East Regional in Bridgeport, Conn., would be a familiar one. The Yale Bulldogs were the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament and were looking to avenge that early season loss to the Falcons. In addition, the game was played in Yale’s backyard, in front of more than 7,000 fans. Late in the second period, senior Sean Bertsch scored on a wrap around to tie the game at 1-1. Neither team scored in the third and the game went into overtime. Air Force had several quality chances in the first three minutes, but it was Yale that advanced to the Elite Eight with a rebound goal at 3:16 of overtime. AFA fell to 1-4 all-time in NCAA Tournament games, but all four losses were by one goal including two in overtime and one in double overtime. The loss was certainly disappointing, but the strides this team made throughout the season were gigantic. An inconsistent team that was full of question marks early in the season went on to win eight straight late in the year and push one of the nation’s best teams to the limit on the game’s biggest stage. Air Force became one of just eight schools in the nation to compete in the NCAA Tournament in at least four of the last five years. The seniors became the winningest class in school history with 85 wins in four years. The Falcons ended the season ranked 18th in the nation, tying the highest final national ranking in school history. Five Falcons earned all-league honors. Mathis earned first-team honors while Lamoureux was second team and Kirby was third team. Mathis was the team’s top scoring defenseman with 27 points. Lamoureux led the nation with 13 power-play goals and was 10th in the nation with five game-winners. He led the team with 24 goals and 44 points. Lamoureux also set a new AHA record with 59 career goals in league games, beating the previous record holder in 23 less games. Kirby was the team’s second leading scorer among defensemen with 23 points. Torf and defenseman Adam McKenzie were named to the all-rookie team. Torf’s 16 wins were the second most of any freshman goaltender in the nation and he closed out the season making 30 consecutive starts. McKenzie was the top scoring freshman defenseman in the league with 18 points in the regular season. Lamoureux won the 2010-11 Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award, which recognizes excellence in the classroom, competition, character and community. He was the fifth consecutive Air Force hockey player to become a finalist and the first-ever Academy athlete to win the award. The forward from Grand Forks, N.D., became just the sixth Falcon in school history, and the first in 29 years, to have three straight 40-point seasons. The team MVP ended his career ranked sixth in career goals with 79 and 15th in career points with 139. Senior Derrick Burnett ended his Falcon career as one of the best set-up men in school history. Burnett led the team with 27 assists and was among the top seven scorers in the league. He finished his career with 85 career assists, the 15th most in school history. Lamoureux, Burnett and the rest of the class will be hard to replace, but a solid foundation is left behind. Nine of the top 11 scorers, including the top three defensemen and the starting goaltender, all return for 2011-12.

2011-12 Air Force Hockey - Page 17


Coming off of its fourth Atlantic Hockey Association championship and NCAA appearance in the last five years, Air Force will again enter a season with a target on its back. With nine of the top 11 scorers, five of the top six defensemen and the goalie returning, Air Force was picked to finish second in the AHA preseason coaches poll. Five of the league’s 12 coaches picked the Falcons to repeat as champions as AFA finished just one point behind RIT in the preseason poll. Air Force returns 18 letterwinners from last season’s team that went 20-12-6 overall and defeated RIT in the AHA championship game to advance to its fourth NCAA Tournament. “I believe our team is deeper this year than it was last year when we won the conference championship,” head coach Frank Serratore said. “Like every year, we must become a great team in every sense of the word if we are to contend again for the AHA Championship. I am very confident we will eventually become a very good team. If it does not happen early, look for it to happen late much like we have witnessed over the last five years.” The Falcons will have to replace a senior class that won more games (85) than any other class in school history. With three AHA tournament titles the class of 2011 will be remembered as one of the best in Academy history.

“We lost seven seniors, but we feel we have some guys that can step in,” Serratore said. “We have the majority of our scoring back with the exception of Jacques Lamoureux and Derrick Burnett. We like our depth a lot. I am not certain what we have, but whatever it is, we have a lot of it!” Team captains Scott Mathis and Paul Weisgarber and fellow seniors Tim Kirby and Stephan Caple will be looked upon as the leaders of the 2011-12 team. With just four seniors on the team, Air Force has a roster that features 18 freshmen and sophomores. “Despite the fact we have a lot of freshmen and sophomores, I do not consider us a young team,” Serratore said. “We have a lot of good players who all possess Junior “A” experience.” With 18 of the 27 Falcons having tasted a championship last season, this is a group that might seem young on the roster, but does have experience in big games. With strong senior leadership and knowing what it takes to win a championship, the Falcons will again look to build toward playing its best hockey at the end of the season. “Our goal is to finish in the top four and get home ice in the playoffs,” he said. “Sure we’d like to win the league, but the playoff title is first and foremost.”

The Forwards Air Force returns 10 forwards from last season’s team, but will have to replace some key players lost to graduation. Three-time all-conference center Jacques Lamoureux and Derrick Burnett will be hard to replace. The Falcons also lost a lot of depth at forward with the graduation of Matt Becker, Sean Bertsch, Blake Page and Scott Kozlak. Senior team captain Paul Weisgarber not only played a key role with his leadership last season, but he also had a career year on the ice. Weisgarber was third on the team with 13 goals and was sixth with 25 points last season.

2011-12 SEASON OUTLOOK

Junior Kyle DeLaurell and John Kruse are the top two returning scorers at the forward positions. DeLaurell is the team’s top returning scorer with 33 points (10-23-33) last season. Kruse was fourth on

the team in scoring last season with 29 points (11-18-29). The forwards in the sophomore class proved to be both deep and talented. Jason Fabian (37 games, 7-16-23), Tony Thomas (38 games, 7-10-17) and Casey Kleisinger (34 games, 5-8-13) combined to miss just five games last season. Fellow sophomores Ryan Timar (28 games, 2-4-6) and George Michalke (27 games, 4-6-10) also saw significant action and Mitch Torrel provided depth. Freshmen Chad Demers, Cole Gunner, Scott Holm, Brad McBride and Ben Persian will look to contribute in their first season at the Division I level. Junior Stephen Carew played 36 games as a freshman at forward and played 36 games as a sophomore on defense. His versatility gives the Falcons many options going into to the 2011-12 season. He could see action at both positions this season. “I like our depth at the forward position,” Serratore said. “With the number of forwards that we lost from last season, you just can’t replace them with one or two guys. We will look to make up the scoring that we lost by committee. If we end up being successful as a team, I believe we will see goal scoring and game situational contributions come from virtually every player in our lineup. I am not sure we have any one player who will light it up as a scorer, but I believe every player on our roster can and will contribute to our overall scoring. With this, if everyone contributes, it should be enough for us to once again be a strong contender in March.”

us from a lot of the teams in college hockey. I believe this will happen if they perform to their potential.”

The Goalies Entering last season, the biggest question mark on the team was goaltending. The Falcons were looking for someone to replace Andrew Volkening, who holds nearly every Academy record for netminders. For the first month of the season, the Falcons rotated three goaltenders, looking for someone to step up and be the guy. That guy stepped up on Nov. 14 when freshman Jason Torf made 34 saves as Air Force beat third-ranked Yale, 4-3 at the Academy.

The Defense The defensive corps could again be the strength of this team. The Falcons return five of the top six defensemen from last season, including three of the top four returning scorers in the league. Senior Scott Mathis was second in the league in points by a defenseman in AHA games last season with 27 points (8-19-27). Mathis earned first-team all-AHA honors last season and joins Weisgarber wearing a “C” in 2011-12. Senior Tim Kirby was a third-team all-league selection as he was third in the AHA in points by a defenseman with 23 (7-16-23). Sophomore Adam McKenzie was the top-scoring freshman defenseman in the league last season and fifth overall with 19 points (5-14-19). McKenzie was named to the all-rookie team. Junior Mike Walsh played in all 38 games on the back line while Carew played in 36.

Junior Eric Artman, sophomore Jacob Musselman and freshmen Alex Halloran, Mike McDonald and Dan Weissenhofer will all look to crack the lineup. “We have the potential of having the deepest defensive corps in the history of the Air Force hockey program,” Serratore said. “Kirby and Mathis are making a strong bid to become arguably the greatest defensive pair in history. Our defensive corps has the potential of separating

With 12 teams in the league there will be two scheduling pods with each team playing three games against each team within their pod and then two games against teams from the other pod for a total of 27 league games. RIT, Mercyhurst, Air Force, Niagara, Robert Morris and Canisius, will form the western pod. Sacred Heart, Holy Cross, Army, Bentley, UConn and AIC form the eastern pod.

Torf started the next 28 consecutive games, earning AHA all-rookie team honors. His 16 wins were the second most in the nation by a freshman. In the AHA championship game, Torf blanked RIT with a career-best 40 saves to earn AHA all-tournament team honors as the Falcons earned their fourth trip to the NCAA Tournament in five years.

The 2012 AHA Tournament will feature a similar format as last year, but with a slight twist. At the end of the regular season, the top four teams (regardless of which the pod) will get byes in the first round of the playoffs. Seeds five through eight will host seeds nine through 12 in a best of three series. The four winners of the first round series will travel to the top four seeds, who received a bye in the first round, for a best-ofthree quarterfinal series.

Senior Stephen Caple gave the Falcons some much needed relief last season. Caple finished with a record of 4-2-2, including three wins coming off the bench. His fourth win of the season came in the first game of the AHA Quarterfinals when he came off the bench in a 7-5 win over Sacred Heart.

The four winners will then travel to the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, N.Y. with the highest remaining seed facing the lowest remaining seed in the first semifinal with the other two remaining seeds facing off in the second semifinal on March 16. The two semifinal winners will then face-off in the championship game, March 17, with the NCAA automatic berth on the line.

“With no established returner in goal last season, Jason Torf took advantage of the opportunity and won the job,” Serratore said. “We expect his game to continue progressing. We also have confidence in Stephen Caple and Paul Moberg. Steve came into several game last season and played well. Paul is a good athlete and a veteran of two years of junior hockey. I am confident he will eventually contend for ice time as well.”

“I am really looking forward for the season to begin,” Serratore said. “This league gets better every year and not because the top is elevated, but the bottom keeps getting better. I think this year the point differential between the top and bottom be less than ever.”

The Schedule The 2011-12 Falcon hockey schedule will be as challenging as ever. Air Force will play 27 league games in the 12-team AHA once again this season. The non-conference schedule is a strong as anybody in the nation with several teams in the USCHO preseason top 20. Air Force opens the season at the Icebreaker Classic in Grand Forks, N.D. The Falcons open the tournament

ATLANTIC HOCKEY ASSOCIATION A new chapter in the history of college hockey was ushered into existence when the Atlantic Hockey Association was created on June 30, 2003, by nine charter members. The sixth Division I men’s ice hockey conference arose when the founding members - American International, Bentley, Canisius, UConn, Holy Cross, Mercyhurst, Quinnipiac, Sacred Heart, and the United States Military Academy (Army) - required an organization that represented their specific hockey needs.

tied the game with a power-play goal midway through the third and then won in overtime, 3-2. Air Force earned its first ever NCAA Tournament win, and just the second in the history of the AHA, as the Falcons blanked third-ranked and top-seeded Michigan, 2-0, at the NCAA East Regional. The Falcons nearly advanced to the Frozen Four, but fell to 10th-ranked Vermont, 3-2, in double overtime in the regional final. Then, in 2010, RIT beat Denver and New Hampshire to advance to the NCAA Frozen Four.

After a two-year stay in Atlantic Hockey, Quinnipiac left the AHA for the ECAC Hockey League in 2005. RIT and Air Force joined Atlantic Hockey for the 2006-07 season, bringing the number of teams in the AHA to 10. RIT made the jump from Division III to Division I while Air Force moved over from College Hockey America. The AHA expanded to 12 teams with the additions of Robert Morris and Niagara beginning with the 2010-11 season.

In 2010-11, Air Force won its fourth league championship in five years with a 1-0 win over RIT in the championshp game. The Falcons then took top-seeded Yale into overtime in the NCAA East Regional, before falling 2-1 in overtime.

In 2005-06, Holy Cross earned its second Atlantic Hockey Association regular season and tournament crowns. The Crusaders posted the first ever NCAA Tournament victory as Holy Cross defeated top-seed Minnesota, 4-3, in overtime at the West Regional in Grand Forks, N.D. Air Force nearly pulled off another upset in 2006-07 as the Falcons pushed topseeded Minnesota to the brink in the NCAA West Regional in Denver. Air Force led, 3-1, with just over eight minutes left in the third period, but fell to the Gophers, 4-3. Air Force became the first AHA team to earn back-toback championships and again advanced to the NCAA Tournament. The Falcons again scared one of the “Big Boys” of college hockey, leading second-ranked Miami, 2-1, in the third period. However, the RedHawks

Success in the classroom is as important as success on the ice among the member institutions of Atlantic Hockey as more than 400 student-athletes have garnered All-Academic honors by the Atlantic Hockey Association.

2011-12 Air Force Hockey - Page 56


HISTORY OF FALCON HOCKEY With the drop of the puck to begin the 2011-12 season, the Falcons will enter their 44th season of Division I hockey.

The program continued to gain momentum, posting its first winning season in 197071 with a 15-11-2 record.

With the Academy still in its infancy, the dream of hockey at the youngest military academy was born.

However, it was the following season that would be the Falcons’ breakthrough year. Heyliger hired his former All-American player at Michigan, John Matchefts, as an assistant coach and the Falcons posted a 25-6 record in 1971-72. A few years later, in Matchefts’ first season as head coach, the Falcons posted a 24-5-1 mark for the school’s best winning percentage. What will best be remembered from that team is a pair of dramatic one-goal wins over Colorado College.

In 1958, a group of cadets began an intramural hockey team. Relying on freezing temperatures and the shadows from the dormitory, cadets donned football and lacrosse equipment and played hockey in the courtyard of Vandenberg Hall. A few years later one of the greatest college hockey coaches ever, Vic Heyliger, became interested in such a fledgling program. With six national championships to his credit at Michigan, the “Father of Air Force Hockey,” came to the Academy in 1966 and guided the club team.

Matchefts went on to win 154 games in 11 seasons before passing the baton to his former standout, Chuck Delich. Delich, who still ranks 10th in NCAA history in career points per game, shattered every school record in his four years.

At long last came the night of Nov. 29, 1968, when the first hockey game was played at the Cadet Ice Arena. The Falcons defeated the Colorado All-Stars, a collage of former collegiate players, 8-6. The first game was not without its share of quirky moments. During the first shift in the first period, a slap shot was taken and went completely through the “shatter-proof” glass and onto the running track in the multi-purpose area. The Falcons finally got their first taste of intercollegiate competition in the new arena and it was not pleasant. Notre Dame, another first-year program, swept the Falcons, 8-1 and 5-4. Air Force gained its first home win with a 6-4 win over Ohio State on Jan. 17, 1968.

After taking over the program in 1985, Delich garnered early success much like his predecessor. In his second season, he posted a 19-10 record, the most wins in 10 years. He then strung together a school-record five consecutive winning seasons in his 12 years while tying the school record with 154 coaching wins. During the Delich years, the Falcons posted a winning record against rival Army, including a 6-1-1 record at home against the Black Knights. The third decade of Falcon hockey brought several changes to the program. Frank Serratore, who has coached at nearly every level of hockey, took over in 1998. His enthu-

siastic, disciplined style of hockey injected a new energy into the program. He has led the Falcons to more Division I victories than any other Falcon coach. In Serratore’s 10th season, he took the program to new heights. The Falcons claimed the Atlantic Hockey Association championship and played Minnesota in the NCAA West Regional, both firsts for any service academy team. A 4-3 loss to the Gophers only whet the Falcons’ appetite. Serratore backed that championship season up with another ring as the Falcons won the AHA title and faced secondranked Miami in the NCAA Northeast Regional, falling to the RedHawks in overtime. After knocking on the door twice, the Falcons finally kicked it in with a record-setting season in 2008-09. AFA won a school-record 28 games, won its third straight AHA championship and won its first-ever NCAA game with a win over the storied Michigan Wolverines. In 2010-11, the Falcons claimed their fourth championship in five years. Another trip to the NCAA Tournament ended with yet another overtime loss, this time a 2-1 loss to top-seeded Yale. With its humble beginnings in an outdoor rink relying on the unpredictable Colorado weather, Falcon hockey has grown by leaps and bounds. In the past 10 years, nearly 700,000 fans have watched the Falcons.

U.S. HOCKEY HALL OF FAME Having only four head coaches in the 44 seasons of varsity hockey, the Air Force Academy is proud to have two former coaches elected to the United States Hockey Hall of Fame: Vic Heyliger and John Matchefts.

VIC HEYLIGER HEAD COACH 1969-1974

JOHN MATCHEFTS HEAD COACH 1975-1985

Vic Heyliger, the “Father of Air Force Hockey,” came to the Academy in 1966 to coach the Falcons’ club team. In 1968-69, he became the Falcons’ first varsity head coach. In his six seasons at the helm, the Falcons quickly became a competitive hockey program at the Division I level. Heyliger led the Falcons to an 85-77-3 record, including a phenomenal 25-6 record in 1971-72, the fourth season of varsity hockey.

John Matchefts was inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame in 1991 and was named to the NCAA’s 50th anniversary hockey team in 1997. Matchefts played on three national championship teams at Michigan under Vic Heyliger from 1951-53. Matchefts earned All-American honors in 1951 and 1953, was twice named to the all-tournament team at the NCAA Championships and was the finals MVP in 1953.

The native of Concord, Mass., will always be regarded as one of the greatest college hockey coaches ever. In 13 seasons as the head coach of his alma mater, Michigan, he led the Wolverines to six NCAA Championships. He led the Wolverines to a 228-61-13 record from 1944-57.

Following his college playing career, Matchefts played on the USA National Team in 1955 and earned a silver medal as an alternate captain with the 1956 USA Olympic Team. After serving as a first lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps, Matchefts returned to hockey in 1957 as the head coach at Lincoln High School in Thief River Falls, Minn. While coaching at Lincoln and his alma mater, Eveleth High School, he led the 1959 and 1960 teams to the state tournament and never had a losing season.

In his fourth season, he led the 1948 Wolverines to a 202-1 record and the school’s first NCAA Championship ever. He repeated the feat in 1951 as Michigan posted a 22-4-1 record and defeated Brown, 7-1, in the championship game. That title was Michigan’s first of three straight championships and five in six years. Heyliger was a three-year letterman at Michigan from 1934-37. The outstanding defenseman award at Michigan is named in his honor. Following his playing career at Michigan, he played three seasons in the National Hockey League with the Chicago Blackhawks. The 1938 graduate of Michigan began his coaching career at the University of Illinois. In four seasons, he guided the Illini to a 59-29-4 record. Heyliger, who was instrumental in the development of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, was named the National Collegiate Coach of the Year in 1953. After leaving Michigan in 1957, he remained active in hockey as he coached the USA National Team that competed against the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia. In 1962 and 1963, Heyliger coached West Germany in the World Championships and later coached Team USA at the 1966 World Championships. He was elected to the United States Hockey Hall of Fame in Eveleth, Minn., in September 1974. Heyliger passed away in 2006.

The native of Eveleth, Minn., guided the Colorado College hockey program for five seasons and posted a 48-72-2 mark. He was named the 1969 Western Collegiate Hockey Association Coach of the Year. Matchefts came to the Academy in 1972 as an assistant coach to Heyliger for three seasons. He took over the head coaching duties in 1974. In 11 seasons, Matchefts led the Falcons to a 154-150-6 record from 1974-85. In his first season at Air Force, he led the Falcons to a remarkable 24-5-1 record, the second-best mark in school history. He also paced the Falcons to four winning seasons in his first five years. His 154 wins are tied with Chuck Delich as the second-most career hockey coaching wins in AFA history. As an assistant coach, Matchefts went back to his hometown to recruit a player who was overlooked by nearly every other Division I school. Four years later, Chuck Delich became Air Force’s all-time leading scorer and one of the most potent offensive players in NCAA history. After spending four seasons as Matchefts’ assistant, Delich succeeded him as the Falcons’ head coach in 1984.

Goalie, 1972-75, White Bear Lake, Minn.

Bob Ingraham holds the career record for goals by a defenseman with 47 and ranks fourth in career scoring by a defenseman with 116 points. As a senior, he was the team captain of the 1992-93 team and is the only defenseman in school history to lead the team in goals for a season. In 1990-91, he led the Falcons with 18 goals, the most ever by a blueliner.

A four-year letterman, Liebich was just the second goaltender honored on the Wall of Fame. A 1992 graduate, Liebich ranks fourth in games played by a goalie (87) and third in saves (2,551). Among goalies with more than 50 games played, he ranks fifth in goals-against average (4.05) and tied for seventh in saves percentage (.878). A four-year starter, he won 33 career games. As a sophomore, he posted a career-best 55 saves as the Falcons earned a rare tie with Colorado College, 3-3, in 1989.

The third goaltender to have his photo placed on the Wall of Fame, Morrison still holds the school record with 121 saves in a series vs. Michigan State in 1973. He played more minutes (6,180) and made more saves (3,270) than any other Falcon goalie. During his four years, the Falcons posted a record of 77-42-1. AFA won 25 games his freshman year and 24 his senior year.

All-Americans For the first 39 years of Air Force hockey, no Falcon ever earned All-America honors. However, in the last three years, three Falcons have earned the honor. Air Force claimed its first All-American in the 200607 season as Eric Ehn was named to the American Hockey Coaches Association East second team. Ehn also earned first-team All-American honors by Inside College Hockey. com and U.S. College Hockey Online. Ehn was second in the nation in scoring with 24 goals, 40 assists and 64 points (1.60 per game). Ehn became the first ever service academy player to earn AHCA All-American honors. He is also the first ever player from the Atlantic Hockey Association or the College Hockey America conference. Two years later, the Falcons had their second and third All-Americans. In the Falcons’ record-setting season of 2008-09, center Jacques Lamoureux and defenseman Greg Flynn earned All-American honors. Lamoureux was a first-team All-American by Inside CollegeHockey.com and was named to the American Hockey Coaches Association East second team. He led the nation with 33 goals, 15 power-play goals and nine game-winners. He was also second in the nation with 53 points (1.29 per game) and was named the AHA Player of the Year. Flynn was a third-team InsideCollegeHockey.com AllAmerican as he was the top scoring defenseman in the nation with seven goals, 35 assists and 42 points (1.02 points per game). A first-team all-AHA selection, he was also named the league’s best defenseman.

FALCONS AND THE HOBEY BAKER AWARD

Prior to 2007, the Hobey Baker Award was merely a pipedream for Air Force hockey. Then, during the 2006-07 season, Eric Ehn became the first service academy player to ever be named a finalist for the Hobey Baker Memorial Award, given annually to the nation’s top collegiate player. Not only was Ehn one of 10 finalists, he was chosen as one of the final three, The Hobey Hat Trick. The junior center from Dexter, Mich., was invited to the NCAA Frozen Four in St. Louis for the awards presentation. Ehn was joined at the awards ceremony by Notre Dame goaltender David Brown and North Dakota forward Ryan Duncan, who won the award. Two years later, sophomore center Jacques Lamoureux was named as one of 10 finalists for the Hobey, making Air Force one of only seven schools (Boston Univeristy, Miami, Michigan, North Dakota, 2006-07 Hobey finalists: Drew Bagnall, St. Lawrence; David Brown, Notre Dame; John Curry, Boston Univ.; Princeton and St. Cloud) to have two Hobey finalists in that three-year span. Lamoureux did not make the Nathan Davis, Miami; Ryan Duncan, North Dakota; Eric Ehn, Air Force; Bobby Goepfert, St. Cloud State; final three as three players from the Hockey East Conference were invited. Boston University’s Matt Gilroy T.J. Hensick, Michigan; David Jones, Dartmouth; won the award. Scott Parse, Nebraska-Omaha

2008-09 Hobey finalists: Louie Caporusso, Michigan; Matt Gilroy, Boston Univ.; Chad Johnson, Alaska; Zane Kalemba, Princeton; Jacques Lamoureux, Air Force; Jamie McBain, Wisconsin; David McIntyre, Colgate; Viktor Stalberg, Vermont; Brad Thiessen, Northeastern; Colin Wilson, Boston Univ.

SCORES VS. OPPONENTS THE FOUNDATION OF AIR FORCE HOCKEY Prior to the Air Force hockey program going Division I in 1968-69, cadets had been playing hockey, both indoors and outdoors, since 1958. In 1966, Vic Heyliger was hired to coach the Air Force hockey club team and then make the transition to Division I in 1968. Heyliger, a former NHL player with the Chicago Blackhawks, started the Academy program after leading the University of Michigan to six national championships in 13 years. Heyliger’s club teams played schedules that included teams from Illinois, Ohio State and Bowling Green. The Air Force hockey program is trying to recapture some of the history of these club teams. Below is a list of players who helped pioneer the sport of hockey at the Academy. Most of these former players do not show up as lettermen, as letters are only awarded for varsity competition.

CHAMPIONSHIP SEASONS

2007 Atlantic Hockey Association Conference Champions The 2006-07 season is one that will not be forgotten soon. Air Force was in its first season of competition in the Atlantic Hockey Association after seven years in College Hockey America. That was only the tip of the iceberg. The Falcons claimed their first-ever conference championship, first-ever trip to the NCAA Tournament, first winning season playing an all-Division I schedule (19-16-5), first winning record in conference play (1310-5), first service academy to win a conference title and compete in the NCAA Hockey Tournament, first-ever All-American (Eric Ehn second-team AHCA), first-ever Hobey Baker finalist (Ehn finished in final three), first player ever selected to the Frozen Four Skills Competition (Andrew Ramsey) and the first finalist for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS award for leadership, character and academics (Billy Devoney was a first-team Lowe’s AllAmerican). The season was one of many ups and downs as the overall record hovered around the .500 mark for most of the year. AFA won just three of its first eight games. However, after a sweep at Mercyhurst, the Falcons were 11-8-5 overall in early January. A five-game losing skid dropped the team’s record to 13-15-5 with just three regular-season games remaining. The Falcons rebounded to win the final three regular-season games over Canisius and American International. The momentum carried over into the AHA Tournament as the

Falcons blanked Holy Cross, 3-0, at the Academy in the quarterfinals. Then, at the AHA Final Four in Rochester, N.Y., the Falcons needed overtime to beat top-seeded Sacred Heart in the semifinals. AFA led 3-1 in the third period, but the Pioneers took a 4-3 lead late in the third. After pulling the goalie, defenseman Billy Devoney scored with 54 seconds left to tie the game. Then, in overtime, Josh Print tipped in a point shot by Greg Flynn to send the Falcons into the championship game. The opponent was none other than service academy rival Army. The game was arguably the biggest in Academy history. Not only was it for bragging rights in the military world, but a conference championship and NCAA bid were on the line. After a scoreless first period, Mike Phillipich and Andrew Ramsey scored for a 2-0 lead in the second period. Freshman goalie Andrew Volkening stopped 18 Black Knight shots in the first 40 minutes and was flawless in the crease. Air Force exploded for four goals in the third period for a 6-1 win. Phillipich was named the tournament’s MVP while Devoney and Volkening were named to the all-tourney team.

The win propelled the Falcons into the NCAA Tournament and a meeting with the tournament’s No. 1 seed, Minnesota, at the Pepsi Center in Denver. The big stage, the media attention, the large crowd and the daunting opponent did not bother the Falcons whatsoever. AFA scored first as Jeff Hajner netted his 13th of the season midway through the first period. Volkening was stellar in the net and the Falcons entered the first intermission with a 1-0 lead. Minnesota tied the game in the second, but the Falcons answered as Ramsey scored on the power-play with 37 seconds left in the second period. Early in the third period, freshman Brett Nylander scored on a wrap-around goal and the Falcons had a 3-1 lead. With just over eight minutes remaining, the Falcons clung to the two-goal advantage. However, the clock was about to strike midnight on Cinderella. Minnesota scored three goals in a span of 3:36 and escaped with a 4-3 win over the Falcons. The loss ended the Falcons’ championship season, but the memories of the team’s first conference title and NCAA berth will last a lifetime.

CHAMPIONSHIP SEASONS

2008 Atlantic Hockey Association Conference Champions Coming off of a league title in 2006-07, the Air Force hockey poster for the 2007-08 season read “A Championship Foundation.” Those words could not have been more prophetic as Air Force defended its championship by winning its second consecutive title and returning to the NCAA Tournament. Air Force finished the 2007-08 season with an overall record of 21-12-6. The 21 wins are the most Division I victories in school history and marked the first back-to-back winning seasons in school history. A nine-game unbeaten streak, the longest in the nation at the time, ended with a 3-2 overtime loss at the NCAA Northeast Regional to Miami, the No. 2 overall seed in the tournament. Air Force claimed some big victories along the way, including a sweep of 14th-ranked Quinnipiac in the season-opening series. In the first half of the season, the Falcons settled for numerous ties in games that could have been victories. However, one tie in particular, was a great one. In the consolation game of the Dodge Holiday Classic at Mariucci Arena in Minneapolis, the Falcons tied 12th-ranked Minnesota, 2-2, on the Gophers’ home ice. Three weeks later, fourth-ranked Denver came to town having won 19 straight over Air Force dating back to 1980. The Falcons got the monkey off their back with a convincing 5-2 victory, tying the highest ranked team Air Force has ever defeated. Matt Fairchild tallied his first career hat trick and Andrew Volkening stopped 29 of 31 shots.

It took some time for the Falcons to regroup, but the train was soon back on the track. A 7-0 win over Mercyhurst on Feb. 9 started a nine-game unbeaten streak, which was the longest in the nation. Air Force was the No. 3 seed in the AHA tournament and hosted eighth-seeded Bentley in a best-of-three playoff series. The Falcons of Bentley were no match for the Falcons of Air Force, as the home team swept the series, 9-2 and 3-1. Air Force was one of five teams to advance to the AHA Final Five in Rochester and the Falcons were scheduled to face second-seeded RIT in their hometown. Air Force silenced the partisan RIT crowd with a 5-0 win in the semifinals as Olson scored two goals and Volkening posted his fourth shutout in his last eight games. The win sent the Falcons to the championship game to face fifth-seeded Mercyhurst, a team playing its third game in as many days. An exciting game see-sawed back and forth until Josh Frider scored with 8:30 left in the third to tie the game at 4-4. The game remain-

ing tied until Frider netted the game-winner 56 seconds into the second overtime, lifting the Falcons to the tournament title and a return trip to the NCAAs. Olson was named the MVP of the tournament with five points in the two games. Two weeks later, the Falcons were back on the ice at the NCAA Northeast Regional in Worcester, Mass., to face top-seeded Miami, the No. 2 overall seed and the top scoring team in the nation. The game got off to an inauspicious start for Air Force as the RedHawks scored on the first shift of the game and had a 1-0 lead 19 seconds into the contest. However, the Falcons came roaring back in the second period to take a 2-1 lead on goals by Derrick Burnett and Josh Print. Miami tied the game with a power-play goal with 6:16 remaining and then scored the game-winner just under five minutes into overtime. For the second consecutive year, the Falcons’ season ended in the first game at the NCAA Regional after having a heavilyfavored opponent on the ropes in the third period. Despite the disappointment at the time, the team’s accomplishments could not be forgotten.

2009 Atlantic Hockey Association Conference Champions When the 2007-08 season concluded with an overtime loss to second-ranked Miami in the NCAA Tournament, the returning players all said they wanted more. It wasn’t good enough. “As much as we accomplished, it’s not enough,” said goaltender Andrew Volkening after the 2007-08 season. Many fans raised an eyebrow, or two, at those statements. The Falcons had just won 21 games, the most Division I wins in school history, earned their second consecutive conference championship, another trip to the NCAA Tournament and nearly knocked off the No. 2 team in all of college hockey. More is what the 2008-09 Falcons delivered: a 28-11-2 overall record, the most wins in school history, the team’s first ever regular-season championship, the third straight Atlantic Hockey Association tournament title, a third-consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament, the program’s first ever win in the NCAAs and a trip to the Elite Eight. Air Force started the season with a giant bull’s eye on its back. Not only were the Falcons the two-time AHA champions, but the coaches picked Air Force first in the preseason poll. The target didn’t seem to bother the Falcons early in the season as Air Force rolled to 13 consecutive wins and a No. 10 ranking in the national polls, both school records. Win number 13 came against a team that the Falcons had not defeated in 24 years, third-ranked Colorado College. After a 4-1 win over the Tigers at home, the streak ended with a 3-1 loss at ninth-ranked DU. The loss put the Falcons in a bit of a tailspin, posting just a 4-7-2 record through December and January. As has been the case the past three years, the

Falcons flipped the switch in February, going 6-2 in the month. Air Force needed a win in the final regular-season game at RIT to share the title with the Tigers and that is just what the Falcons got. in a 3-1 victory to earn the top seed in the tournament. In the league quarterfinal best-of-three series, the Falcons hosted No. 8-seed Sacred Heart, but the series was much closer than the many fans anticipated. Air Force scored late to earn a 4-3 win in the first game, but Sacred Heart won game two, 4-1, forcing a deciding third game. Air Force left no doubt in the rubber match as Greg Flynn scored the first two goals of the game and cruised to an 8-1 victory and a trip to the AHA Final Four in Rochester, N.Y. In the AHA semifinal game, Matt Fairchild scored two goals and Volkening stopped all 26 shots he faced in a 3-0 blanking of Bentley. The win sent the Falcons back to the championship game, setting up a rematch of last years’ title game with Mercyhurst. This game was not nearly the epic of the previous season as the Falcons held the No. 2 scoring team in the nation without a goal in a 2-0 victory. Lamoureux and Fairchild scored and Volkening made 25 saves in the game. The third consecutive league championship sent the Falcons back to the NCAA Tournament, a place where this team had some unfinished business. Who would be the Falcons’ opponent at the Big Dance?

None other than the most storied program in the history of college hockey, the Michigan Wolverines. The top-seeded Wolverines, ranked third in the nation, boasted 13 NHL draft choices. However, it was Air Force’s first-team all-league choices that led the way. Volkening stopped all 43 shots he faced, Flynn assisted on both goals and Lamoureux scored AFA’s second goal of the game as the Falcons earned a 2-0 win for the program’s first ever NCAA win. Derrick Burnett scored the first goal of the game, the eventual game-winner. The win sent Air Force to its first-ever Elite Eight and a matchup vs. 10th-ranked Vermont. The winner would earn a spot in the Frozen Four in Washington D.C. Freshman Paul Weisgarber broke a scoreless tie in the second period, but Vermont scored two goals midway through the third for a 2-1 lead. Air Force came back to tie the game at 11:18 on Sean Bertsch’s goal. Neither team scored during the rest of regulation or the first overtime. In the second overtime, Vermont defenseman Dan Lawson took a slap shot from the point at the 14:10 mark and play continued for nearly two minutes. Upon the first whistle, the play was under video review and, after a 12-minute delay; the shot was ruled a goal as the puck went through the net ending the Falcons’ season. The loss was tough to swallow, especially being one shot from going to the Frozen Four, but the 2008-09 season proved the Falcons were truly one of the best teams in the nation.

CHAMPIONSHIP SEASONS

2011 Atlantic Hockey Association Conference Champions The 2010-11 season began with many questions marks. The Falcons had to break in a new goaltender and had several holes to fill. The Falcons were picked to finish third in the preseason coaches poll and coach Frank Serratore said he would do cartwheels if that was the case. After a rough start, Air Force finished strong with eight straight wins to include its fourth AHA championship in the last five years. The Falcons finished the season with a 20-12-6 overall record and won the AHA tournament as the No. 2 seed. Air Force advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the fourth time in school history and, for the fourth time, lost a one-goal game on the national stage. Yale, the No.1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, needed overtime to beat the Falcons, 2-1, in the NCAA East Regional in Bridgeport, Conn. The season could not have gotten off to a more dismal beginning. An 0-4 start included a home loss to the last-place team in the league, the AIC Yellow Jackets. Air Force’s first signature win of the season came on Nov. 7 when defending league champion, and 2010 Frozen Four participant, RIT came to town. AFA fell behind 2-0 in the first period, but bounced back as Paul Weisgarber tied the game with five minutes remaining and John Kruse scored the game winner with just over three minutes left for a 4-3 win. After a loss to Colorado College, the Falcons hosted third-ranked and undefeated Yale. The Bulldogs spent the majority of the season ranked first in the nation and advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight. But Nov. 14, 2010 is a night that the over-capacity crowd at the Cadet Ice Arena won’t soon forget. Trailing

3-0 in the third, AFA scored four unanswered goals and freshman goalie Jason Torf made 34 saves as the Falcons earned a 4-3 win. From that point on, Air Force was a different team. Beginning with that game, Air Force was 186-6 in the final 30 games of the season. Air Force needed to earn some points down the stretch to secure home ice in the playoffs. An unexpected road sweep at Mercyhurst set up a series with second-place Robert Morris and a chance to get a bye in the first round. That bye was clinched as the Falcons earned two 4-2 victories and finished second in the AHA regular season. After a week off, Air Force hosted Sacred Heart in the quarterfinals, March 11-12, at the Cadet Ice Arena. The Falcons out-scored the Pioneers, 7-5, in the first game as the two teams combined for 10 goals in the first 26 minutes of the game. The next night was all defense. Torf stopped all 16 shots he faced as the Falcons earned a 4-0 win and an unprecedented fifth straight trip to the AHA Final Four in Rochester, N.Y. The second-seeded Falcons faced the thirdseeded Holy Cross Crusaders in the semifinals and again had to come from behind. Trailing 2-1 in the third, Jacques Lamoureux scored twice late for a 3-2 win. The championship game was a winner-takeall showdown against the top two teams in the league as the No. 2 Falcons faced the topseeded RIT Tigers. In the second period, Tim

Kirby drove the length of the ice and Lamoureux scored the game’s only goal. Torf made a career high 40 saves and the Falcons had earned their fourth trip to the NCAA Tournament in the last five years. Lamoureux was named the tournament’s MVP and was joined on the all-tournament team by Torf, Kirby and Scott Mathis. The Falcons’ opponent in the NCAA East Regional in Bridgeport, Conn., would be a familiar one, the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament, Yale Late in the second period, senior Sean Bertsch scored on a wrap around to tie the game at 1-1. Neither team scored in the third and the game went into overtime. Air Force had several quality chances in the first three minutes, but it was Yale that advanced with a rebound goal at 3:16 of overtime. The loss was certainly disappointing, but the strides this team made throughout the season were gigantic. An inconsistent team that was full of question marks early in the season went on to win eight straight late in the year and push one of the nation’s best teams to the limit on the game’s biggest stage. Air Force became one of just eight schools in the nation to compete in the NCAA Tournament in at least four of the last five years. The seniors became the winningest class in school history with 85 wins in four years. The Falcons ended the season ranked 18th in the nation, tying the highest final national ranking in school history.

THE AIR FORCE ACADEMY The United States Air Force Academy offers a fouryear 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.

intramural sports and intercollegiate athletic programs in the nation. Cadets take at least three different physical education courses each year.

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 for four years in a row. 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,

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 second-summer 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. 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. For information on admission procedures, write to HQ USAFA/RRS; 2304 Cadet Drive, Suite 200; USAF Academy, CO 808405025 or go to www.usafa.edu.

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.

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

Dr. Hans J. Mueh Director of Athletics

Eighth Year

Dr. Hans J. Mueh is in his eighth 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.

Mueh was instrumental in the USAFA Endowment and the announcement of the Holaday Athletic Center, an indoor training facility. The $15 million facility was completed in July 2011.

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.

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.

Between earning the two degrees, Mueh returned to the Academy as an instructor in the department of 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.

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 post-season in all three sports.

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 twoyear 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.

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 four of the last five years. Mueh was on the selection committee that hired current head coach Frank Serratore and led the Academy’s move into the Athletic 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 five years, playing in the Armed Forces Bowl in 2007. The program then posted back-to-back eight-win seasons and was 9-4 last year while qualifying for bowl games every year. The school has averaged 9,000 bowl tickets sold during the four-year run.

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

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.

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, he has the department on course to become a federally chartered non-profit organization which will lead to more fund-raising opportunities.

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 NCAAsanctioned 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. 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, New Mexico, San Diego State, TCU, UNLV and Wyoming. All sports also compete against non-conference oppo-

nents, including many nationally-ranked teams. The football team competes annually for the Commander-inChief’s Trophy, which is emblematic of service academy football supremacy. The Falcons have won the trophy 17 times, which is more than any other academy. The winner of the annual rivalry visits the White House to have the trophy presented by the President of the United States. 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. Clune Arena seats 5,858. The Cadet Ice Rink has a seating capacity of 2,470, while the multi-purpose area seats 1,000 fans for track and field competitions. The department’s newest facility, the Holaday Athletic Center, was completed in July 2011.

CADET ICE ARENA Sitting at more than 7,000 feet above sea level, air is rare at the Air Force Academy. The Cadet Ice Arena, with a capacity of 2,470, has proven that home ice certainly can be an advantage. The last two years, a ticket to Air Force hockey has been a hot commodity. Last season, AFA averaged 2,575 fans per game in 19 home games. AFA was one of only three schools in the nation to average a sellout throughout the regular season and playoffs (Michigan, and Notre Dame). Air Force averaged 104.3 percent of capacity last season, the second highest average in the nation (Notre Dame 105.3). AFA played in front of 13 home sellouts last season, including the final nine consecutive games. The Cadet Ice Arena was sold out 14 of the 18 games last season and 35 of the last 41 games overall. The Falcons have won more than 61 percent of all games played in the arena. In 42 seasons, the Falcons have had just 10 losing seasons at home. The team’s record of 431-269-37 merely scratches the surface. In service academy competition, the true measure of any academy team, the Falcons are 15-5-2 against Army at the Cadet Ice Arena. The Falcons’ first season of varsity hockey was the 1968-69 season when the team posted a 5-7 record at home. Air Force then went on to eight straight winning seasons at home. The Falcons finished 17-1 at home in 1974-75 and 14-3 at home in 1976-77. The team set a school record by winning 13 straight home games from Nov. 11, 1974 to Jan. 13, 1975. After two straight home losing seasons, Frank Serratore brought more than just winning hockey back to the “CIA.” In his first season, he led AFA to a 13-8 record. In 2008-09, AFA was 16-4 at home, the sixth best home winning percentage in history. The arena was originally built as part of the Cadet Field House in 1968. Throughout the years, the arena has seen improvements. In September 2000, the surface, refrigeration system, boards and glass were all replaced. In the summer of 2009, a new video board was installed on the south wall of the arena. Along with the video board, a new centerhung scoreboard and new sound system were added to the arena. The spring, summer and fall of 2007 brought new events to the Cadet Ice Arena. On March 10, 2007, the arena hosted its first ever playoff game as the Falcons defeated Holy Cross, 3-0. On Sept. 16, 2007, the arena hosted its ever professional game as the Colorado Avalanche played their annual Burgundy-White game at the Academy. NHL stars Joe Sakic, Milan Hejduk and company thrilled the over-capacity crowd of 3,031. The Avalanche Burgundy-White game returned to the “CIA” in 2008, 2009 and 2011.
