WEST POINT

THE PREMIER LEADER DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTION IN THE NATION The United States Military Academy is renowned because of its historic and distinguished reputation as a military academy, and as a leading, progressive institution of higher education. Made legendary in books and movies produced over the years, the Academy’s “Long Gray Line” of graduates includes some of our nation’s most famous and influential men: Ulysses S. Grant, Robert E. Lee, Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, George S. Patton, Omar Bradley, Douglas MacArthur, Dwight Eisenhower and Norman Schwarzkopf. Because of this superb education and leadership experience, West Point graduates historically have been sought for high level civilian and military leadership positions. Their numbers include two U.S. presidents, several ambassadors, state governors, legislators, judges, cabinet members, educators, astronauts and corporate executives. Today, West Point continues to provide hundreds of young men and women the unique opportunity to develop physically, ethically and intellectually while building a foundation for an exciting, challenging and rewarding career as an Army officer in the service of our nation. Cadets have much more responsibility in running the Academy than students in most other colleges or universities. It adds to the leadership experience. Cadets succeed at West Point because of the support they receive from the staff and faculty. After all, many faculty members are West Point graduates and understand the challenge cadets face on a daily basis. They also serve as ideal role models, showing cadets what Army life is like. The U.S. Military Academy’s primary strength is its ability to develop leaders of character who are committed to “Duty, Honor, Country” and selfless service to our nation.

The mission of the U.S. Military Academy is to educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets so that each graduate is a commissioned leader of character committed to the values of Duty, Honor, Country; professional growth throughout a career as an officer in the U.S. Army; and a lifetime of selfless service to the Nation. Founded on March 16, 1802, the Academy celebrated its Bicentennial in 2002. But West Point’s role in America’s history dates to the Revolutionary War, when both sides realized the strategic importance of the commanding plateau on the west bank of the Hudson River. Gen. George Washington considered West Point to be the most strategic position in America. He personally selected Thaddeus Kosciuszko, one of the heroes of Saratoga, to design the fortifications in 1778 after problems arose with French engineers originally placed in charge of the design. In 1779, General Washington transferred his headquarters to West Point. Continental soldiers built forts, batteries and defensive barriers. A 100-ton iron chain was extended across the Hudson to control river traffic. Today, several links from that chain are arranged at Trophy Point as a reminder of West Point’s original fortifications. In 1802 President Thomas Jefferson signed the legislation establishing the U.S. Military Academy to create an institution devoted to the arts and sciences of warfare. This effectively eliminated America’s wartime reliance on foreign engineers and artillerists. West Point became the nation’s first engineering school and served as the model for engineering programs which were eventually established at other colleges. Col. Sylvanus Thayer, the “Father of the Military Academy,” served as Superintendent from 1817 through 1833. He upgraded academic standards, instilled military discipline and emphasized honorable conduct. Early graduates were largely responsible for the construction of the nation’s initial railway lines, bridges, harbors, and roads. Although the curriculum maintains its focus on engineering, in recent decades the program of instruction has markedly changed, providing cadets a selection of more than 40 majors. This tradition of academic and military excellence, guided by a demanding standard of moral and ethical conduct, remains the cornerstone of the West Point experience. It is said at West Point that “much of the history we teach was made by those people we taught.” The Academy has produced famous leaders throughout its illustrious past…Civil War Generals Grant, Sherman, Lee, and Jackson, to name but a few. In World War I, 34 of the 38 corps and division commanders were graduates. World War II would see many graduates reach brigadier general or higher, to include Eisenhower, MacArthur, Bradley and Patton. In more recent conflicts, MacArthur, Ridgway, Westmoreland, Abrams, Schwarzkopf and Abizaid were in command. Academy graduates have also excelled in air and space exploration, and countless others went on from military service to become leaders in medicine, law, business, religion and science. Since its founding, the Military Academy fulfills the same mission as it always has . . . to educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets. It accomplishes this mission by developing cadets in three essential areas: intellectual, physical and military. These developmental paths are balanced and fully integrated into the daily life of each young man and woman at the Academy. Intellectual growth is fostered through an academic curriculum that provides a broad liberal education in the arts and sciences. The electives program builds upon the foundation of the core, allowing cadets to develop even greater competence in selected areas. In addition, the fields-of-study and majors nurture the development of creativity, critical thinking, and self-directed learning, essential characteristics of 21st century officers. The four-year academic experience leads to a bachelor of science degree and a commission as a second lieutenant in the Army.

ARMY SWIMMING & DIVING 2009-10

Physical development is achieved through a rigorous athletic and physical education program. Each cadet participates at the intercollegiate, club or intramural level each semester. This readies the cadet for the physical demands of military life and helps teach good judgment and self-discipline, even while under mental and physical stress. Military development begins with the cadet’s first day at West Point. Most military training takes place during the summer, with new cadets undergoing Cadet Basic Training, or Beast Barracks, their first year, followed the second summer by Cadet Field Training. Cadets spend their third and fourth summers serving in active Army units around the world; attending specialty training such as airborne, air assault or northern warfare or helping to train the first- and second-year cadets. The Cadet Leader Development System seeks to give the cadets increasing responsibility until they are ready to receive their commissions and assume their duties as leaders in today’s Army. Moral and ethical values guide cadets throughout their four years at West Point. Commitment to the Academy’s “Bedrock Values,” based on integrity and respect for the dignity of others, begins on the first day. Integrity is reflected in the Cadet Honor Code which states: “A cadet will not lie, cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do.” Respect denotes that cadets treat others with the same respect and dignity they themselves would expect. At West Point, it is not enough to train leaders—they must be leaders of character. Admission is keenly competitive and is open to young men and women from all states and territories and from every socioeconomic level. Prospective cadets must receive a nomination by a member of Congress or from the Department of the Army. The Academy seeks candidates who possess records of success in academics, athletics and leadership indicative of well-rounded individuals. Although the life of a cadet is demanding, there remains an array of club activities ranging from golf, skiing, boxing, crew and orienteering to such organizations as the cadet radio station, Habitat for Humanity and Big Brothers-Big Sisters. Additionally, the U.S. Corps of Cadets hosts a Special Olympics event each spring. Today’s Military Academy is a vastly different institution from the small academy legislated into being by Congress in 1802. Originally just 1,800 acres, the Academy has grown to more than 16,000 acres. The first graduating class numbered just two men; today’s classes graduate more than 900 new officers annually, both men and women, who are prepared for leadership roles within the Army. With the expansion of knowledge and the changing needs of the United States Army and the nation, life at West Point has changed to keep pace. Ever mindful of its rich heritage, the U.S. Military Academy is developing leaders for tomorrow, and its focus remains the national needs of the 21st century.

DISTINGUISHED ALUMNI

BORMAN

GRANT

ROBERT E. LEE ’29 The Academy’s ninth Superintendent (1852-55), Lee was a model cadet during his four years at West Point. He graduated second in his class and never earned a single demerit during his four years at the Academy. At the beginning of the Civil War, he was selected to serve as Commanding General of the Army, but instead resigned his commission and was named General-In-Chief of the Confederate Army from 1861 to 1865. Lee’s surrender to Ulysses S. Grant (USMA 1843), at Appomattox Court House, Va., ended the Civil War. Fort Lee, Va., was named in his honor. ULYSSES S. GRANT ’43 Grant distinguished himself during the Civil War at the Battle of Vicksburg in 1863; his victory secured control of the Mississippi River for the Union. President Abe Lincoln later appointed him Commanding General of the Army in March 1864. On April 9, 1865, at Appomattox Court House, Va., Robert E. Lee (USMA 1829) surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia to him, ending the Civil War. Grant later served as the 18th President of the United States from 1869 to 1877. Today, his image graces the $50 bill. GEORGE W. GOETHALS ’80 Goethals became an architect and was builder of the Panama Canal, 1904 to 1914. JOHN J. PERSHING ’86 Considered the second most senior officer in Army history, behind only George Washington, Pershing served as commander of the American Expeditionary Force during World War I. The two-million-plus troops of the AEF made a decisive contribution to the defeat of Imperial Germany. Pershing’s abilities as a leader distinguished him among European commanders, and through repeated successes on the battlefield, promoted American prestige around the world. He served as Army Chief of Staff in 1921, and was named General of the Armies of the United States upon his retirement in 1924.

HAIG

DOUGLAS MACARTHUR ’03 After World War I, MacArthur returned to West Point to serve as the Academy’s 31st Superintendent from 1919 to 1922. During that time, he was responsible for the revitalization of the Academy. He was later promoted to General of the Army and served as Supreme Allied Commander in the Pacific Theater during World War II. During that time, he received the Medal of Honor for leading defense preparation and operations on the Philippine Islands. He later served as Supreme Allied Commander, Japan, and as commander, United Nations Command in the Far East. He was one of only five officers to be promoted to General of the Army (five stars). GEORGE S. PATTON JR. ’09 “Old Blood and Guts,” Patton was one of the most colorful commanders in the Army. During World War II the famed commander of the 2nd Armored Division and later the Third Army displayed courage and daring as prominently as the pair of ivory handled revolvers he wore. Patton accomplished one of the most remarkable feats in military history in December 1944, when he quickly turned the Third Army northward to reinforce the Allied southern flank against the German attack in the Battle of the Bulge. The General’s doctrine of aggressive employment of massive armor forces continue to prove themselves in combat arenas around the world. OMAR N. BRADLEY ’15 During his career, Bradley earned a reputation as one of the best infantry commanders in World War II. He commanded the 82nd Airborne and 28th Infantry Divisions before going on to command the 1st Army and the 12th Army Group. After the war he served as Army Chief of Staff from 1948 to 1949 and served as the first Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1949 to 1953. He was the last Army officer to be promoted to General of the Army (five stars), and the Bradley fighting vehicle is named in his honor.

KIMBROUGH

KIMSEY

DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER ’15 During World War II, Eisenhower served as Supreme Commander of Allied Forces Europe from 1943 to 1944, during which he led the D-Day invasion of Europe. During that time, he was promoted to General of the Army (five stars). After the war, he served as Army Chief of Staff from 1945 to 1948 and was named President of Columbia University in 1948. He served as the 34th President of the United States from 1953 to 1961 and was one of only five officers to be promoted to General of the Army (five stars). ALEXANDER M. HAIG JR. ’47 Haig served as Chief of Staff to President Richard Nixon from 1973 to 1974; Supreme Allied Commander in Europe 1974 to 1979; President of United Technologies Corporation 1980 to 1981 and Secretary of State during the Reagan administration from 1981 to 1982. FRANK BORMAN ’50 An astronaut from 1962 to 1970, Borman commanded the first circumlunar flight of the earth. He later served as President of Eastern Airlines. FIDEL V. RAMOS ’50 One of the Academy’s international cadets, Ramos served as a Philippine Army officer after graduation. He eventually became the country’s military Chief of Staff and later Secretary of National Defense. He also served as President of the Republic of the Philippines from 1992 to 1998. EDWIN E. ALDRIN ’51 An astronaut from 1963 to 1972, Aldrin participated in the first manned lunar landing with Michael Collins (USMA ’52) and was the second man to walk on the moon. EDWARD WHITE ’52 An astronaut from 1962 to 1967, White was the first man to walk in space and was one of the three astronauts killed in the Apollo I disaster in 1967.

SCHWARZKOPF

H. NORMAN SCHWARZKOPF ’56 As Commander-in-Chief, United States Central Command from 1988 to 1991, Schwarzkopf’s command ultimately responded to Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait with the largest U.S. deployment since the Vietnam War, including portions of the Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps as well as units from dozens of nations around the world. After retiring, Schwartzkopf received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. PETER M. DAWKINS ’59 Dawkins was Cadet Brigade Commander (First Captain of the U.S. Corps of Cadets) as a senior and became the third Heisman Trophy winner in Army football history. He later served as chairman and CEO of Primerica. JAMES V. KIMSEY ’62 Kimsey was the founding chairman of America Online, and was named chairman emeritus in 1996. He founded the Kimsey Foundation in 1996. MICHAEL W. KRZYZEWSKI ’69 Krzyzewski served as head basketball coach at West Point from 1974 to 1979 before assuming similar duties at Duke University. Krzyzewski has led the Blue Devils to three national championships and was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in October 2001. He coached the U.S. at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. RAYMOND T. ODIERNO ‘76 Odierno commanded the 4th Infantry Division during the fall of 2003 which, along with Special Forces units, captured Saddam Hussein in December of that year. Odierno helped plan and coordinate the raid that netted Iraq’s fallen dictator. ROBERT S. KIMBROUGH ’89 Kimbrough was named one of 11 new astronaut candidates by NASA in May 2004. Kimbrough ranks among Army Baseball’s career leaders in saves. A veteran of Desert Storm, he currently works for NASA in Houston as a flight simulation engineer and participated in a space shuttle mission last fall.

ADMISSIONS TO WEST POINT

Peterson’s Guide ranks West Point as one of the most competitive colleges in the nation. There are approximately 12,000 applications each year for less than 1,200 cadet vacancies. Applicants compete for vacancies and are evaluated in three areas: academics, physical aptitude and demonstrated leadership ability. Cadet vacancies are allocated to each member of Congress and to the representatives to Congress from Washington, D.C., Guam, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, American Samoa and the Mariana Islands. Many foreign governments are also invited to nominate cadets under a Department of State program, so the student population at West Point is incredibly diverse. The following is an overview of the first three steps toward gaining admittance to West Point. Further information regarding the admissions process and orientation visits is available by calling the Director of Admissions at (845) 938-4041. Should you wish to schedule an official visit, contact the Army Swimming & Diving office at (845) 938-3928. Determine if you meet entrance requirements: To meet West Point’s minimum entrance requirements, you must: be at least 17 but not yet 23 on the day you enter West Point; be a U.S. citizen at the time you enter (except for foreign cadets as noted above); not be married or pregnant, nor have a legal obligation to support a child or other dependent. Additionally, you must meet academic, medical and physical qualifications. To be considered academically qualified, you should have an above-average high school or college

academic record and strong performance on the standardized American College Testing (ACT) Assessment Program Exam or the College Board Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). Additionally, you should take a strong college preparatory program in high school, including four years of English, four years of math (including trigonometry), two years of laboratory science, two years of a foreign language and one year of U.S. history. To be medically qualified, you must be in good physical and mental health and pass a medical exam administered by the Department of Defense. To meet physical qualification standards, you must demonstrate above-average strength, endurance and agility. The West Point Field Force administers a Physical Aptitude Exam to measure these traits.

Long recognized as one of the premier academic institutions in the United States, the U.S. Military Academy provides a challenging curriculum that culminates in a bachelor of science degree upon graduation. An array of over 40 majors in the academic program are available to cadets as West Point strives to educate and train the Corps of Cadets so that each graduate shall have the attributes essential to professional growth as an officer in the regular Army. The USMA curriculum is also geared toward providing West Point graduates with an intellectual foundation for increasing responsibility (as they ascend the ranks) through a balanced undergraduate education. The Academy’s highly competitive academic environment, coupled with its broad-based academic curriculum, has helped West Point rank fourth nationally in the number of both Rhodes Scholars and Hertz Scholars that it has produced. The West Point curriculum is divided into three portions - core courses, an engineering sequence and a field of study. Cadets are required to take 26 core courses plus five additional classes in one of seven engineering sequences (mechanical, electrical, civil, nuclear, systems, computer or environmental). Beginning with the first semester of the junior year, cadets begin to take electives for their chosen field of study. Fields of study require completion of nine additional courses, bringing to 40 the number of classes a cadet must pass in order to receive a degree. The selection of an optional major involves anywhere from one to four - usually three - additional courses above and beyond the nine field of study electives. This will allow the Cadet to expand his or her realm of study within a chosen discipline. Physical education and military science courses round out the challenging curriculum. Cadets are required to incorporate classes from both disciplines into each semester’s class schedule, creating a standard six-course load for each academic term.

ATHLETE OPPORTUNITIES CENTER FOR ENHANCED PERFORMANCE The Center for Enhanced Performance (CEP) is a state of the art facility committed to developing the full potential of each cadet through comprehensive mental toughness and academic skills training. It offers three programs designed to maximize West Point cadet performance, as well as export these critical mental skills to the United States Army at large. The Performance Enhancement Program (PEP) is the nation’s most comprehensive training program for learning, practicing and mastering the intangible mental skills that underlie human performance; confidence despite setbacks, concentration amidst distractions, and composure under stress. Cadets participate in individual training sessions during free periods in their academic schedule, learning, and then applying the skills of imagery, attention control, energy management, and goal setting. Biofeedback training allows cadets to learn crucial self-regulation techniques, and sophisticated audio and video simulations of game and practice situations are used to facilitate mental rehearsal of specific physical, academic, or military skills. These training methods are derived from the field of applied sport psychology, where they are employed in the training of professional and Olympic athletes, but apply to every other area of human performance. The Academic Excellence Program provides instruction in academic support skills designed to help cadets succeed in the classroom. Three classes are offered throughout the academic year: 1) the Student Success Course, a 20 lesson course combining the study skills of textbook marking, note taking, test preparation and time management, with the mental skills such as attention control, confidence building, stress and energy management; 2) Reading Efficiency, a 10 lesson course designed to improve reading speed and comprehension through drill and utilization of modern computer technologies; and 3) Information Literacy and Critical Thinking, a 20-lesson course taught jointly with the USMA Library staff created to enhance problem-solving skills and critically read and evaluate research. The CEP Tutor Program organizes final exam preparation sessions at the end of each semester, and cadet tutors for nearly every academic course are available throughout the year. Most recently the CEP created the Military Enhancement Program (MEP), designed to apply the skills and techniques taught by the Performance Enhancement Program within a military context. MEP Training is now nested throughout the 47 months of the West Point experience. These programs are unique aids to the every member of the Corps of Cadets who seeks to achieve their full potential in academics, athletics and military training. The Center for Enhanced Performance is a powerful demonstration of the Academy’s commitment to provide the finest training available to the future leaders of the nation.

WORLD CLASS ATHLETE PROGRAM While the Center for Enhanced Performance helps West Point student-athletes succeed in the classroom, the World Class Athlete Program provides outstanding soldierathletes the support and training to compete and succeed in national and international competitions to include the Olympic Games, while maintaining a professional military career and promoting the U.S. Army to the world. WCAP offers all graduates of West Point the same opportunity for selection. All soldiers must be in good military standing. All West Point graduates must have completed their branch Officer Basic Course. Soldiers applying for the program must demonstrate the ability to maintain a high national ranking in their specific sport. If selected to be a WCAP member after graduating from West Point, your Army objective will be to train to make the Olympic Team. Qualifiers of the World Class Athlete Program receive exceptional training from some of the finest coaches and trainers in the country. A total of 95 soldiers were assigned to WCAP to train for the 2000 Olympic Games and 2002 Winter Olympics. Of the 77 training for the Summer Games, 53 qualified for the Olympic Trials. Three athletes made the Olympic team, while four more were named alternates. Sixteen of the 18 athletes training for the 2002 Winter Olympics qualified for the Olympic Trials. Nine of those people advanced to the Olympic Games, while two qualified as alternates. WCAP athletes earned three medals, one gold and two bronze.

14 - Army Swimming & Diving 2009-10

Since 1948, over 400 Army soldier-athletes have been selected to either an American summer or winter Olympic team, earning 102 medals overall. Recent WCAP accomplishments include: 2004 Fifteen WCAP members qualified for the Olympic Trials. Dremial Byers, Tina George and Faruk Sahin all won individual titles at the U.S. Open, while Oscar Wood qualified for the Athens Olympic Games. 2002 Glenn Nieradka, Keith Sieracki, Dremiel Byers and Iris Smith won their respective weight classes to lead the All-Army wrestling team to its second consecutive Greco-Roman crown at the U.S. National Wrestling Championships. 2000 Six freestyle and 11 Greco Roman WCAP wrestlers qualified for finals of Olympic Trials. 1999 WCAP athletes won 156 medals in national and international championships. 1998 At the Winter Olympic Games, nine soldiers made the U.S. Olympic team. 1996 60 soldiers qualified for the U.S. Olympic Trials, 15 made the U.S. Olympic team.


CRANDALL POOL/ARMY DIVING Thanks to some renovations over the years, Army’s Crandall Pool is still considered one of the top venues on the East Coast. Since its completion in 1970, the pool has been the site of state, regional and national events, most notably the 1972 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships and the 1971 National AAU Indoor Diving Championships. Also among the best is the diving facility, which includes two one-meter and two three-meter springboards, as well as 6.5 and 10-meter platforms. They are located in a separate diving area, permitting simultaneous swimming and diving training. The diving facilities also include a dry board and a trampoline for dryland dive training. The electronic timing system can also calculate divers’ scores based on the judges’ scores and degree of difficulty. In 1995-96, the facility received a $10-million facelift. Included in the modifications were new men’s and women’s locker rooms, renovated storage and office areas, and a new heating and filtration system in the pool. The 1972 Men’s and 1976 Women’s Olympic teams selected West Point as the official training site before departing for Munich and Montreal, respectively. Army has served as host for both the Eastern Seaboard Swimming and Diving Championships and the Patriot League Championships. Most recently, the 2000 Patriot League Championships and the 2001 EISL Championships were held at West Point. Crandall Pool has also played host to other special events. Of recent note was the German National Swimming Team’s visit to West Point for training prior to the 1998 Goodwill Games on Long Island, N.Y. Crandall Pool was named in memory of Robert W. Crandall, USMA ’39, the captain of the 1938-39 Army swimming team who was killed in battle in Italy in World War II. Suitable for long- and short-course training, the pool is a six-lane, 50-meter course which can be divided by a submergible bulkhead into an eight-lane, 25-yard competition pool and a six-lane practice pool. The overall depth is not less than eight-feet, making for a very fast pool. The facility has a seating capacity of 1,210 and has an excellent view of the finish and scoreboard. There is also a fully electronic timing and judging system.

Army Diving

Army Diving strives to have each cadet-athlete fulfill his or her potential and reach the pinnacle of the Division I level through rigorous training and the utilization of a top-notch facility at Crandall Pool. Divers at USMA make use of two one- and three-meter springboards, a 6.5-meter platform, a 10-meter platform, dryboard, trampoline, spotting belts and TiVo. The daily schedule of an Army diver is a productive one, with six days of training each week. Nonetheless, the demands of the classroom at West Point are still met and surpassed by everyone who is a part of the program. Army Diving trains everyday during the week as well as Saturday, with Sundays off. During the course of the whole year, the Army diving team will use all the tools in its possession in order to peak for Navy and for Patriots. As with all cadets at West Point, the diving team works hard each and every day and strives to meet every challenge they face, both on the boards and in the classroom. Army divers are an indispensable part of the Army swimming and diving program. Interaction and reliance on the swimmers as teammates is an important part of the life of any Army diver. Together, swimmers and divers share the same daily challenges, make the same sacrifices, and have the same ultimate goal – win championships and BEAT NAVY!

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS KEVIN ANDERSON

Since Kevin Anderson was introduced as Army’s Director of Athletics on Dec. 13, 2004, West Point’s intercollegiate athletic program has enjoyed immense success both on and off the “fields of friendly strife.” Boasting more than two decades of leadership and experience, Anderson departed his post as executive associate athletic director at Oregon State University to accept the challenge of re-invigorating Army’s proud athletic program. The veteran administrator has played a large role in accomplishing that goal during his five years along the banks of the Hudson. In that time, Army has sent 19 intercollegiate athletic teams to the NCAAs, captured its first National Championship in more than 50 years, witnessed the revitalization of its hockey and men’s basketball programs, and experienced unparalleled success in several others, such as baseball, women’s volleyball, women’s tennis and women’s basketball. A year ago, Army’s women’s soccer team became West Point’s ninth different intercollegiate program to advance to the NCAAs under Anderson’s watch, while the baseball team reached a regional final for the first time in school history. During the 2004-05 academic year, Anderson’s first at West Point, Army’s athletic program won a National Championship in rifle, sent a record seven teams to postseason appearances, defeated Navy in the yearlong series for the first time since 1978 and forged an overall winning percentage of .582. It marked Army’s finest overall performance in more than a decade. Seventeen of Army’s 25 intercollegiate teams carved records of .500 or better that year as the Black Knights put forth their highest year-long winning percentage since a .604 effort in 1993-94. In addition, Army reclaimed the Patriot League’s Presidents’ Cup—signifying the league’s all-sports champion—for the first time since 1997. Army sent its rifle, gymnastics, baseball, lacrosse, men’s tennis, women’s tennis and golf squads to postseason play, surpassing the previous standard of six teams in NCAA action. Six of Army’s eight spring teams won Patriot League titles that year. Army’s success opposite Navy snapped a 27-year drought in the all-sports rivalry, giving the Black Knights their first series win over Navy since going 9-8-1 (.528) in 1977-78. The Black Knights used their 2004-05 success as a springboard to continued outstanding performances in 2005-06. Army’s fall and winter teams combined to forge back-to-back winning records for the first time since 1993-94. Additionally, four Army teams earned NCAA Tournament appearances in 2005-06, highlighted by the women’s basketball team, which earned the Academy’s first postseason berth at the Division I level. In 2006-07, Anderson presided over a resurgence of Army’s men’s basketball and hockey programs, as well as the contin-

The Army “A” Club has continued to flourish under Anderson’s leadership, establishing school records for annual giving during each of his four years at the Academy. During his time at Oregon State, Anderson directed the athletic department’s external operations, to include marketing and promotions, sports information, ticket operations and the Beaver Athletic Student Fund. He also oversaw Oregon State’s highly successful football, men’s basketball and baseball programs, leading the search and recruitment for head football coach Mike Riley. Anderson, who ranks as the first African-American to hold the position of director of athletics at West Point, was a member of an OSU management staff that balanced the athletic department’s budget for the first time in nearly 15 years.

HEAD COACH MICKEY WENDER MICKEY WENDER - HEAD COACH FOURTH SEASON - VERMONT ‘89 out his illustrious coaching career,” continued Anderson. “We feel Mickey will serve as outstanding role model for our cadet-athletes, providing them the best experience possible.”

While Michael Phelps and the rest of the world were making swimming history in Beijing at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, Army head coach Mickey Wender was there making his own mark. Appointed head coach of the American Samoa swimming contingent for the games, he and rising Black Knight junior Stewart Glenister, who’s parents are native to the small island in the South Pacific, made the trip to the Far East to compete against the best athletes in the world on the grandest stage the sport has to offer.

In his first season with the Black Knights, Wender was named Patriot League Coach of the Year after leading the men’s program to second place at the conference championship meet with the team’s highest point total since Army won the meet in 2001. He also guided the women to a fourth-place outcome as 11 total members of the two teams earned All-Patriot League recognition. Wender then directed the men’s team to a second-place finish at the USA Swimming Championships while two of his swimmers ��� Zach Disbrow ’07 and Jake Mentele ’08 – registered qualifying times for the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials. Twenty-one members of the team either earned a spot or moved up on Army’s all-time top-10 performance list, with nearly 95 percent of the roster achieving personal bests in their primary events. Mentele followed in Disbrow’s footsteps in 2008, bringing home Male Swimmer of the Meet honors at the Patriot League Championships after winning individual titles in the 100 and 200 breaststrokes as well as the 200 IM.

Under Wender’s watchful eye, Glenister swam to first place in his heat of the 50-meter freestyle, while setting an American Samoan national record in the process. Wender was also able to soak up as much of the Olympic experience as he could to bring back to the West Point pool deck at Crandall Pool.

“I was so proud of what both teams accomplished in my first two seasons,” stated Wender. “We grew a lot since first meeting after I took over, as individuals, as a team and as a coaching staff. I’m really pleased with the foundation that group laid for the Army swimming program and what we plan to achieve in the future.”

The ninth head coach in the 87-year history of the men’s program and the sixth women’s coach in the program’s 30-year history, Wender enters his fourth year at West Point after eight seasons at the head of the swimming & diving program at the University of Washington where he authored an impressive dual-meet record of 154-58.

The Setauket, N.Y., native restored the Washington program to national prominence during his tenure with the Huskies while competing in the Pacific-10 conference. His women’s program appeared in the national rankings in 2003 and 2005, and the men’s squad earned national recognition from 2000 to 2005.

Upon his hiring in 2006, Army Director of Athletics Kevin Anderson stated, “We are very excited to announce the hiring of Mickey Wender as the next men’s and women’s swimming and diving coach at the United States Military Academy. He has excelled at the highest level of his field, helping to develop countless All-Americans over the years in one of the most competitive swimming conferences in the country. We are very fortunate to have attracted someone the quality of Mickey Wender to lead our program. “Complementing his vast success in the pool, Wender brings an impressive record of leadership development that has remained constant through-

Twelve Huskies swimmers earned All-America recognition and 28 qualified for the NCAA Championships during his tenure. Impressively, Wender sent a representative for every swimming event during his successful run in Seattle. His swimmers broke school records in 32 different events on multiple occasions.

2007 Men’s Coach of the Year

During the 2003-04 campaign, his men’s team finished 25th at nationals on the strength of five NCAA qualifiers, including Phil Davis, a Pac-10 Champion and conference record-holder in the 200 breaststroke. It was the men’s team’s highest finish at the NCAA Championships in more than 30 years. The women’s team sent four swimmers to the 2003 NCAA Championships and placed 19th for the highest national finish since swimming became an NCAA sponsored sport in 1982. Kim Harada, who coached with Wender for three years at Washington and two years at Army, recorded two fourth-place finishes in the 50 and 100 freestyle events to earn All-America honors. She also earned honorable mention honors in the 200 freestyle relay along with teammates Annette Vayo, Melody Staubitz and Sharon Olson. Wender’s swimmers not only achieved success in the pool, but were just as impressive in the classroom. Ten Huskies were named to the Pac-10 All-Academic squad during the 2001-02 season, including David Moilanen who was a first team Academic All-American, a Rhodes Scholar finalist and the school record holder in the 100 backstroke. Wender’s swimmers were honored with postseason awards at the conference and national level for four consecutive years. Five men and seven women were named to the Pac-10 AllAcademic team in 2005. His teams also garnered awards for community service, academics and school spirit. “I was honored and humbled to have been selected the next swimming and diving team coach at

ABOUT THE PATRIOT LEAGUE In its second decade of combining academic and athletic excellence, the Patriot League sponsors championships in 23 men and women’s sports. Initially started as an NCAA Division I-AA football conference in 1986, the Patriot League became an all-sport conference in 1990 and includes American, Army, Bucknell, Colgate, Holy Cross, Lafayette, Lehigh and Navy as full members, and Fordham and Georgetown as associate members. These institutions are among the oldest and most prestigious in the nation and their alumni have, and continue to play leadership roles in shaping our country. Since 1998, the Patriot League has ranked first each year among all Division I conferences awarding athletic aid in the NCAA Graduation Rate Report. The League finished at the top spot with 96 percent of its teams reporting a graduation rate of 85 percent or higher in the most recent data. In addition, 76 Patriot League teams earned NCAA Academic Performance Program Public Recognition Awards after posting academic progress rate scores in the top 10 percent of all squads in their respective sports. The Patriot League’s mission is simple, to provide successful competitive athletic experiences while maintaining high academic standards, and to prepare its student-athletes to be leaders in society. During the 2008-09 academic year, Patriot League student-athletes and teams have accomplished the following: *15 student-athletes earned ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-America honors, including First-Team selections for: Army’s Elizabeth Betterbed, Sarah Goss, Briana Stremick Scott Rosenshein and Kevin Kumlien; Navy’s Lizzie Barnes and Kelly Zahalka; and Colgate’s Daniel Kerley. *61 student-athletes were recognized as ESPN The Magazine/ CoSIDA Academic All-District recipients, with 45 on the First Team. *Bucknell won its 15th overall and women’s Patriot League Presidents’ Cup trophy, while Army won the men’s trophy for the first time since 2005. *Holy Cross men’s soccer senior Jerry Dickinson was awarded a Fulbright Grant to work and study in South Africa. *Navy’s Kelly Zahalka earned her third Academic All-America selection from CoSIDA, and was also named to the USA Today First-Team All-Academic squad.

the Year and Tournament Most Valuable Player award in the same year. *Colgate’s Nick Hennessey and Steve Jonas and Holy Cross’ Brett McDermott all signed NFL free agent contracts. *Hennessey became the first Patriot Leaguer since 2004 to earn consensus FCS All-America honors with his selection by each of the four major organizations. *The Lehigh women’s basketball team was one of 14 NCAA Tournament participants to record a perfect graduation rate. *Colgate’s Jordan Scott finished his career as the all-time Division I leader in carries (1,240), and fifth in FCS history while breaking the Patriot League record in rushing yardage (5,621).

TURN BACK THE CLOCK: ARMY MEN FINISH SECOND AT 2007 USA SWIMMING SPRING CHAMPIONSHIPS March 31, 31 2007 EAST MEADOW, N.Y. – The Army men’s swimming and diving team’s success this spring has gone from the conference to national level following a second place finish at the USA Swimming Spring Championships East Meadow, N.Y. “We had tremendous performances all week,” commented Army head coach Mickey Wender. “I’m proud of what our guys did out here, they represented Army swimming and the Academy extremely well. Jake (Mentele) and Zach (Disbrow) had great swims as they both made Olympic Trial cuts. This was a great way to cap what has been a very rewarding first year for me personally.” The Black Knights had been in seventh place at the midpoint of the competition, but used a very solid final two days of swims to improve upon that placement and finish second in the men’s team division. Army was represented in four events over the final two days and notched Top- 8 finishes in three, including a second place finish in the 400-meter freestyle relay. The quartet of Zach Disbrow, Mike Soderberg, Jake Mentele and Efri Ruthenberg notched the best finish of the Spring Championships for Army with their runner-up placing in the event. The foursome touched the wall in 3 minutes, 31.42 seconds to help catapult the team up the leaderboard. Mentele and Disbrow also enjoyed individual success as both qualified for the Olympic Trials in their respective disciplines. Mentele followed up his sixth place finish and Olympic Trials cut in the 200 breaststroke by touching the wall seventh in the 100 breast in a time of 1:05.02. His time in the preliminaries of the event of 1:04.60 was below the Olympic Trials cut for the event, marking the first time he has made the cut in the 100 breast. Disbrow improved upon his 14th place finish in the 200 butterfly with a seventh place finish in the 100 fly clocking a time of 55.74. The team captain touched the wall in 55.50 in the preliminaries qualifying him for the Olympic Trials for the first time in his career. Disbrow also competed in the 50 free where he placed 37th with a time of 24.48. Ruthenberg joined him in the event finishing 42nd in 24.60.
