Army’s magical ride to the NCAA Championship was the final feather in the cap of the players and coaches alike who survived a wild Patriot League postseason tournament run. After narrowly surviving a 5-4 penalty kick shootout with Bucknell in the conference semifinals, Army dispatched top-seeded Navy on its home turf, 1-0, in a heart-wrenching double-overtime championship game. While the Cinderella story ended in the first round of the NCAAs at heavily favored Virginia with a 2-0 loss, nothing could tarnish what the underdog Black Knights had come together to accomplish during the season.

ABOUT WEST POINT

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. Physical development is achieved through a rigorous athletic and physical education program. Each cadet participates at the

SOCCER

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.

SOCCER CLINTON FIELD: HOME OF ARMY SOCCER

Clinton Field at West Point is named after Revolutionary War hero Gen. James Clinton. As one of New York’s most distinguished military leaders during the colonies’ fight for independence, Clinton commanded troops throughout the Hudson River Valley, including stops at Fort Clinton, Fort Montgomery and West Point. It was at West Point in 1778 where Gen. Clinton and his men began to throw chains across the Hudson to prevent enemy ships from traveling up the river. One of Clinton’s most important missions began in November of 1778. Upon receiving orders at West Point from Gen. George Washington, Clinton left for Albany to join forces with Gen. Sullivan. Their mission was to help the colonists seek retribution against Indian and Tory armies who had massacred the villages of Cherry Village, N.Y., and Wyoming, Pa. Clinton’s and Sullivan’s forces eventually defeated their enemies in an intense battle in Elmira, N.Y., forcing them to flee to the British fortress in Niagara. This battle was one of Clinton’s last as he immediately returned to Albany and remained there until the end of the war. However, he would later find himself alongside Washington during the British surrender at Yorktown and was later present at the evacuation of New York by the British. After exiting his military career, Clinton took an active role in politics serving as a member of the convention called to ratify the Constitution of the United States. Clinton was also elected a member of the New York State Senate. The Army women’s soccer team has called Clinton Field home for the past 22 years and have enjoyed unparalleled success on the pitch as a result. Army has authored a .625 overall winning percentage along the banks of the Hudson and a .625 winning mark at the Division I level. In 2009, the Black Knights blanked four visitors to the military academy, running their mark of home shutouts to 47 over 16 seasons. Before 1992, Army split its home games between North Athletic Field and Clinton Field. It did not take long for the Black Knights to warm up to their new digs in the fall of 1993. Army etched out a 9-1-1 home mark for a season-best .864 winning percentage inside West Point’s iron gates. The Black Knights won their first Patriot

League crown en route to a program-best 201-1 campaign, which saw them record a schoolrecord 14 straight wins and shut out their first nine opponents. Army has posted a winning season at home five of the past six seasons, including an unbeaten campaign in 2001. Two years later the Black Knights forged a 7-2-0 mark on the strength of a six-game home winning streak through September. The 2006 season season was the first time that Navy pulled out a victory at West Point since 2000, while Air Force suffed a 2-1 defeat in just its second trip to West Point. The Falcons are 0-2 at Clinton Field, while the Black Knights are 5-3-2 alltime against their service-academy counterpart in games played on post. Army compiled an 13-8-3 mark at home the past three years to include seven shutouts. Always a home to the Army men’s soccer team, Clinton Field also hosted the USA Rugby Championships April of 2006, then underwent sod replacement that spring in providing both soccer squads with brand new grass on which to play. The two teams combined for nine wins between them in breaking in the new turf.

Navy, American and Lehigh in 2010. Clinton Field has also been host to five Patriot League Tournaments, twice with the men and three times with the women. Additionally, both the men’s and women’s soccer squads host early-season tournaments on a regular basis, which attracts some of the top teams in the Northeast and from around the country. The women are 102-59-11 all-time at Clinton Field and have averaged over five wins per campaign in the 21st century on the friendly confines. Army headed into last season just three victories shy of reaching the century mark in home wins which it accomplished under first-year coach Stefanie Golan following a 5-3-1 mark to show 102 wins. Golan, the associate head coach for two years under long-time mentor Gene Ventriglia, was chosen to replace him following his retirement at the conclusion of the 2008 campaign. It proved to be one of the finest seasons in school history as the Black Knights made their first-ever trip to the NCAA Tournament after winning the Patriot League title. Ventriglia had patrolled the sidelines for 23 years after presiding over the Black Knights’ elevation from club status to a perennial Patriot League contender as the first coach in the program’s intercollegiate history. Army has crafted winning soccer squads who have defended their home turf quite well, and Golan has proven to be just the coach to continue the Black Knights’ storied heritage.

ARMY SOCCER FACILITIES During the last few years, West Point’s quiet reserve has been interrupted by the sounds of progress and improvement designed to elevate the Black Knights’ athletic programs to a new “margin of excellence.” One of the latest waves of facility upgrade projects included the soccer clubhouse. The architectural design services for the facility were provided through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers by Stephen J. Kagel Associates, Architects and Engineers in New York City. The complex, located across the street from Clinton Field, features locker room facilities, a training area for the athletes and a team meeting room and lounge. An added advantage for both Army coaching staffs will be the opportunity during halftime to discuss strategy away from the noise of the playing field and out of the elements. With progress being made on the soccer team’s behalf, it is certain that the improvements will translate into better performances on the field. “Our field is one of the finest in this region, and our field maintenance personnel deserve to be thanked for that,” said head coach Stefanie Golan. “The atmosphere is fantastic and there is nothing better than playing there on a crisp fall evening. Our team room and locker room are convenient and top-notch, which gives our team a sense of pride. We try to surround that area with some history of the program so they can thank those who came before them for where we are as a program now.”

ARMY BLACK KNIGHTS ... The members of the Army women’s soccer team have consistently been involved in community work. The Black Knights have held clinics for the local youth for the past several years, and most recently hosted one last fall and in the spring for boys and girls in the surrounding communities. For several years Army competed at the Toys for Tots Military Academies Classic hosted by Saint Louis University. The tournament supported the local Marine Corps Reserves, who kicked off their annual Toys for Tots fund drive at the Classic. In addition to raising money through the companies and Corps of Cadets to purchase toys for the event, the players also visited St. Louis Children’s Hospital along with participating in a clinic sponsored by SPENSA (Specials Needs Soccer Association). During the fall the team is on hand for face painting and interaction with fans at Black Knights Alley, a family fun zone held prior to every home football game.

The most visible sign of Army’s commitment in this area is the O’Meara, Malek, Dawkins, Class of 1959 Strength Development Center in Kimsey Athletic Center, one of the finest facilities in the nation. The monstrous 20,000-square-foot center is located on the second floor of Kimsey Athletic Center and features 30 tons of plates and dumbbells; 15 pieces of cardiovascular equipment, including six high-speed treadmills; a state-of-the-art weight training area with 16 rack and platform training stations, as well as a separate dumbbell area; and top-of-the-line Hammer strength equipment. Under the direction of Scott Swanson, this facility rivals any training facility in the country.

Stationed on the first floor of Kimsey Athletic Center, Army’s athletic training department moved into its new and spacious home in the spring of 2003. The athletic training room now covers 9,500 square feet, housing the finest equipment available for the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. Highlights of the facility include a 1,202square-foot cardiovascular room containing more then 25 pieces of equipment; a state-of-the-art hydrotherapy area equipped with a 2,018-square-foot rehabilitation pool, Jacuzzi, two large pools and four regular pools; 10 treatment tables; five modular taping tables; high-density storage; and a physician’s office with X-ray capability. The training room also features a vast array of the latest treatment and rehabilitation equipment. Thanks to the expansive new treatment area, Army’s athletic training staff can serve countless Black Knight athletes simultaneously so they are able to realize their full potential on the “fields of friendly strife.” Assistant Athletic Trainer Sam Visco oversees all of women’s soccer’s needs.


CENTER FOR ENHANCED PERFORMANCE (CEP) The Center For Enhanced Performance (CEP) ensures that every cadet now has the opportunity to develop expertise in the key mental skills which underlie high-level performance in all situations. 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) uses state-of-the-artt training methods and sophisticated audio/video technologies, while e broadening the applications to include cadets from every performance e endeavor. This training, as comprehensive and detailed as any received by professional and Olympic athletes, enables cadets to develop confidence ce under pressure, concentration amidst distractions, and composure during ng times of stress. Cadets participate in individual training sessions, during ng free periods in their academic schedule, learning, and then applying ng the skills of imagery, attention control, stress and energy management, nt, and goal setting. Biofeedback training allows cadets to learn crucial selflfregulation techniques. Sophisticated audio and video simulations of game e and practice situations are created to facilitate guided imagery and mental rehearsal of specific physical, academic, or military skills. 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 gh drill and utilization of modern computer technologies; and 3) Information n Literacy and Critical Thinking, a 20-lesson course taught jointly with the e 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. The following photos, taken by CEP instructors, are designed to give a visual reminder of what is important on and off the pitch for the Army women’s soccer team.


ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE AT WEST POINT AT WEST POINT, WOMEN’S SOCCER PLAYERS, LIKE ALL OTHER CADETS, MUST EXHIBIT PROFICIENCY IN THE CLASSROOM AS WELL AS IN MILITARY AND CADET TRAINING. NOT ONLY HAVE THEY SUCCEEDED – THEY HAVE EXCELLED! FIVE WOMEN’S SOCCER PLAYERS HAVE EARNED NINE ACADEMIC ALL-AMERICA HONORS OVER THE YEARS. ELIZABETH BETTERBED (USMA 2010), SARAH GOSS (USMA 2009) AND JULIE JORGENSEN (USMA 2005) ARE COSIDA ACADEMIC ALL-AMERICA FIRST TEAM SELECTIONS.

ELIZABETH H BETTERBED NO. 1 IN CLASS OF 2010, RHODES SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT As the United States Military Academy celebrated the 30th anniversary of the first women’s class to graduate on May 22, the first cadet that President Barack Obama presented a diploma to at the 2010 Graduation ceremony at Michie Stadium Saturday morning was Elizabeth Betterbed - an athlete, a scholar and a leader. History was also set that day as Alexandra Rosenberg and Betterbed became the first females to finish No. 1 and No. 2 academically. Betterbed, a four-year soccer star, ranked No. 1 in her class (academic, physical and military disciplines) and second academically along with holding the second highest position in the Corps of Cadets as the Deputy Brigade Commander. Since women arrived at West Point in the summer of 1976, only two have had the distinction of graduating first in their class, and both were scholar-athletes. Women’s tennis star Rebecca Mariner was the first female Cadet to graduate No. 1 in her class (1995) followed 15 years later by Betterbed who excelled on the pitch. Former women’s soccer star Kristin Baker was the first woman to command the Corps of Cadets as the Cadet First Captain and Brigade Commander in 1988-89, while Betterbed is one of an elite group of females to hold the position of Deputy Brigade Commander Betterbed closed out her collegiate career as two-time first team CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American and a Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award All-American who won the fan voting and was among five women’s soccer scholar-athletes chosen for first team honors.

The senior from Fox Island, Wash., played a key role all four year as a starter on the women’s soccer team and was instrumental in Army’s firstever NCAA appearance in 2008 after leading the Black Knights to the Patriot League Tournament title and automatic bid. A league all-star as a defender, Betterbed was an all-tournament selection as well that year. This past fall she led the team in scoring with 10 points including a pair of game winners following her switch to midfield.

MEET THE COACHES


HEAD COACH STEFANIE GOLAN

2010 STEFANIE GOLAN Head Coach 2nd Season at Army (7-10-2) Duke, 2001 Stefanie Golan heads into her second season as Army’s head women’s soccer coach and fourth year as a member of the staff after spending her first two years as the associate head coach under longtime Army mentor Gene Ventriglia. The first woman and second person to head the program, Golan helped Ventriglia architect one of the finest program’s in the fall of 2008. The Black Knights captured their second Patriot League title and first NCAA bid after defeating top-seed and host Navy, 1-0, in double overtime in Annapolis, Md. Army drew No. 16 and host Virginia in the opening round regional match at the NCAA Tournament on Nov. 14. Army held the Cavaliers to a goal in each half before bowing 2-0 in closing out the year 12-6-3. Playing a key role in the Black Knights’ success was a freshman class recruited by Golan that listed among the top 150 schools nationally on Soccer Buzz magazine’s preseason web site. An eight-year veteran of the collegiate coaching ranks, Golan joined Army’s program in January of 2007 and helped the Black Knights to a No. 4 seed in the Patriot League Tournament her first year. When Ventriglia announced in the spring of 2008 that he would retire at the end of the fall campaign, Army Director of Athletics Kevin Anderson didn’t have to look far to identify the replacement in Golan. “We are very fortunate to be in position to elevate Stefanie Golan to serve as our head coach,” said Anderson at the time of her appointment. “We have been very impressed with Stefanie’s work ethic and coaching style in the time that she’s been with us. She developed a strong rapport with the players in our program instantly, and we feel she is the person best-suited for the position.” Army posted a 7-10-2 mark Golan’s first year to include a 5-3-1 showing at Clinton Field. Among the senior class was Elizabeth Betterbed, a Rhodes Scholar and two-time first team CoSIDA/ESPN Magazine All-America who graduated No. 1 in the class of 2010. Golan, a native of St. Louis, Mo., spent the 2006 campaign as an assistant at the University of Pittsburgh under head coach Sue-Moy Chin. The Panthers took No. 25 ranked Louisville into double overtime before bowing 1-0 at the Big East Conference Tournament, closing out the season 8-8-3, their best regular-season finish in school history. During her time at Pittsburgh, Golan helped

to recruit a highly regarded group of athletes to the Panthers’ program, a group that included a National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) high school All-American, an All-Metropolitan Player of the Year and a second team all-region pick. Prior to her stay at Pittsburgh, Golan served a two-year stint on the coaching staff at the University of Evansville (2003-04), where she played an integral part in its recruiting efforts. In 2005, many of her recruits led the Purple Aces to their first winning campaign since 2001, along with recording their best non-conference record in the history of the program. Several of her recruited athletes at Evansville received numerous honors to include a third team Soccer Buzz freshman All-American, a NSCAA/adidas second team all-regional (Great Lakes) pick, along with the Missouri Valley Conference Freshman of the Year. The squad also garnered a pair of all-conference, all-freshman team and all-tournament team selections. Golan’s first coaching appointment came as a graduate assistant at Mercer University in 2002. A 2001 graduate of Duke University, Golan (formerly Stefanie Kraay) lettered as a defenseman for the Blue Devils for four years (1997-2001). She was named to the Soccer America Team of the Week in 1998, and to the Atlantic Coast Conference All-Tournament team in 2000. The Blue Devils earned bids to the NCAA Tournament three of her four playing years, compiling an overall record of 43-35-5 during her tenure in Durham, N.C. Golan began her soccer career as a member of the Busch and JB Marine Soccer clubs in St. Louis, Mo. She won multiple state, regional and national championships at the youth level, and was the team’s defensive most valuable player in each of its championship wins. During her high school career, Golan led her team to the Missouri state title and a 27-1-1 record, anchoring a defense that totaled 22 shutouts and allowed only 10 goals. Golan earned multiple honors her senior year to include All-Midwest, all-state, all-metro and all-conference recognition. Golan and her husband, Dave, reside in West Point, N.Y., with their son Travis, born in May 2006. Her father, Geno Kraay, USAFA ’71, lettered in men’s soccer at the Air Force Academy and was an All-American goalkeeper in 1969 and a two-time All-Far West Region selection.

SOCCER

MAKE EVERY MINUTE COUNT: Whether it is training, a meeting, pregame, film, etc., every minute we have with the team is an opportunity to get better. We want each person to walk away from every opportunity feeling like they got something out of it. PLAY TO WIN: We will go into every game prepared to win and with the expectation that we will win. Our players will understand what is required of them to win, and they will give their best effort day in and day out to prepare to win. DEFENSIVE ATTITUDE: We all know the saying that defense wins championships, and it has always held true. Defending is all about attitude and discipline, and we are going to instill both in our players. ATTACKING FLAIR: Encourage creativity in the attack. Give the players the freedom to become artists and to be okay with making mistakes. We will ensure they know how to attack, but that there is flexibility within the system. We will set them up to have a system with structure, but flexibility which allows for creativity within the structure. Without structure, it’s only chaos! DEVELOP A SYSTEM AROUND OUR PLAYERS: We will build our system around the players we have, not force players into a system that isn’t the best for the team. This is something that will be constantly reevaluated.

IN THE EYES OF HEAD COACH STEFANIE GOLAN ...

RESPECT: Respect is earned, and we will earn the respect of our team and maintain that respect in the way we conduct ourselves. We care about them as people, students, cadets, soccer players, and future Army officers. We are a part of the team, not above it.

SUCCESS: Is not left to chance, it is all about preparation and attitude. We will carry ourselves with a swagger, but with the understanding that we will earn everything that we get through hard work and that we have to prove ourselves every single day. We are selfless, relentless workers, who will do things the right way, rise up to meet high expectations, and make every minute count. We will take pride in our defending and have fun while attacking with a creative flair and play/train to win. Nobody will work as hard as we do as a program. Every player who comes through our program will leave having grown not only as a player, but as a person as well. LOYALTY: We will be fully supportive through both word and action to West Point, to the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics (ODIA), and to the women’s soccer program. PROGRAM FIRST: We will always do what is in the best interest of the program and the players. We will support them in their endeavors as cadet-athletes and push them to succeed in all facets of life at West Point, not just in soccer. OUTWORK OPPONENTS: We will work harder and smarter than our opponents. We will cover more ground in recruiting, bring in better players, and get more out of our players than they do with theirs. We will be better prepared as a staff, and our team will go into every game expecting to win. We will never lose a game or a recruiting battle because someone did more than we did. We will control the things we can control and leave nothing to chance. DO THINGS THE RIGHT WAY: We will not cut corners or cheat in any aspect of what we do. We will recruit the right way, be honest with everything that we do, and represent ourselves, the program and West Point with pride, class, and dignity. RAISE THE BAR: We are going to set a high standard and continually push to

raise the bar. The sky is the limit, and we want to be a program that is constantly pushing forward and striving to be better. We will constantly reevaluate our current team to set the standards and expectations based on the team that we currently have to work with. We will never lower our expectations once they have been set for each team; we will find ways to raise the players to meet the expectations that have been set.

Assistant Coach 2nd Season George Mason, 1987

Assistant Coach 1st Season Lynn, 1999

Fred Thompson, the first hire for the women’s soccer program under head coach Stefanie Golan, begins his second year on the staff. “I am thrilled to have Fred as my top assistant coach,” said Golan. “He has a wealth of experience as both a player and coach, and he is one of the brightest soccer tacticians in the game. He is a perfect fit for our program as he grasps the bigger picture that is West Point and understands how we fit into the overall mission.” Prior to his arrival at West Point, Thompson had served the previous five years as the head men’s soccer coach at Bowling Green (18-69-8) following a two-year stint as an assistant coach at the University of Evansville (200203). His first head coaching assignment was at Bellevue (Wash.) Community College (2000-01) where he compiled a 28-8-6 mark after guiding the men’s soccer team to the conference title in 2001 after being a finalist in 2000. He was also honored as the NWAACC (Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges) Coach of the Year. While at Bellevue, Thompson also served as the assistant on the women’s soccer staff (2001). He broke into the collegiate coaching ranks in 1999 as an assistant men’s soccer coach at Green River Community College (Wash.). A four-year starter during his undergraduate days at George Mason University, Thompson was a two-time All-South Atlantic Region honoree. He earned All-ECAC South honors his junior year and was named to the All-Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) squad that year as well. He was also a three-time All-Capital Collegiate Conference and All-Virginia Intercollegiate League selection. Thompson was part of three George Mason teams that ranked in the Top 20 nationally during his playing career prior to earning his bachelor of science degree in finance (1987). In 1982, he led the Patriots to a 17-0-0 regular-season mark and final 19-2-0 record, while the team’s .905 winning percentage was the third best in state history. Individually, he is ranked in the Top 20 on the all-time career point list for players of Virginia Universities, and in the Top 15 on the career goals leader list. He was recently named to the All-Time Colonial Athletic Association Team at the conference’s 25th anniversary celebration. Thompson was among a select group of all-time greats who dominated the pitch in the 1980s. Following graduation, the native of Jamaica played professionally for eight years with the Baltimore Blast of the MISL, Tacoma Stars of the MSL and the Sacramento Knights of the CISL as a defender. He was also the starting sweeper for the Jamaican National Team (1988-90), and was part of history after helping his squad advance beyond the opening round of the World Cup qualification for the first time. Involved in coaching youth (both boys and girls) since 1983, he served with the Washington State Olympic Development Program as well as the Region II ODP staff. From 1993-99 he was involved with the FC United Premier Soccer Club in Tacoma, Wash. He was also the head coach for the U19 (1997-98) and U14 (194-95) while an assistant coach for the U13 (1993-94). Thompson holds a USSF “A” coaching license. Thompson and his wife Jill reside in Highland Falls, N.Y.

The most recent addition to head coach Stefanie Golan’s staff was the hiring of Mario Rincon as an assistant coach this past December. Rincon had spent the past three years in a similar capacity at Florida Gulf Coast University. The 14-year coaching veteran helped start the program at Florida Gulf Coast that produced an impressive 32-16-6 mark during his three-year stay. Rincon was instrumental in the Eagles’ earning 12 Atlantic Sun League certificates (four first team, three second and five newcomer selections) along with garnering freshman of the year accolades twice. Last fall FGCU placed third in the Atlantic Sun Conference while finishing 11-5-3 overall for the highest winning percentage (.658) in school history. “We are thrilled to have Mario join our women’s soccer program here at West Point,” said Golan. “I have known Mario for about eight years and we have talked about working together for a long time. He is a phenomenal recruiter and an excellent coach who relates well to the players. Every program he has been a part of has gotten better during his tenure and sustained the success after his departure.” Prior to his stint at FGCU, Rincon was on the staffs at Wright State, Baylor University, Duke University, University of Miami and Lynn University. During his two-year stay at Wright State, Rincon helped the Raiders to a 23-8-5 mark along with earning five all-Horizon League certificates. He had a freshman selected by Soccer Buzz and the NSCAA (third team) for Regional (Great Lakes) honors. Rincon spent two years (2003-04) at Baylor University where he was instrumental in recruiting a freshman class that Soccer Buzz ranked nationally in 2004. Three players earned All-Big XII conference honors, eight were named to the academic unit along with goalkeeper Ashley Holder who was invited to the U-21 Women’s National Team training camp. He brought in a freshman class that ranked No. 8 by Soccer Buzz during his one-year stay at Duke University (2001-02). Five players were all-conference selections that fall with another named to the SCAA All-Southeast Region first team. In addition, he was instrumental in the development of an Atlantic Coast Conference first team goalkeeper who competed for the Icelandic National Team at the Pre-World Cup Qualifier. After joining the University of Miami staff in the fall of 2000, Rincon served as the interim coach from February-July 2001. He played a key role in helping the school earn its first national ranking along with receiving a bid to the 2001 NCAA Tournament. He also assisted in the development of the school’s first player to earn a spot on the Mexican National Team. Rincon broke into the collegiate coaching ranks at Lynn University where he helped the Fighting Knights to three Final Four Division II finishes to include winning the national title (19-1-0) in 1998, runner-up honors in 1996 (20-1-0), along with reaching the semifinals in 1997 (19-2-0). He earned his degree in business administration from Lynn in 1999 after playing college soccer at the University of Central Florida (1990-93). In addition to collegiate coaching, Rincon was the team administrator, scout and coach of the Metrostars (Jan. 1999-April 2000). The team won the Eastern Conference title along with Rodrigo Faria earning 2001 MLS Rookie of the Year honors.

2010 ROSTER BREAKDOWN

NUMERICAL ROSTER


2010 SEASON OUTLOOK

2010 NEW YEAR, NEW TEAM This fall will be the 25th anniversary of women’s soccer at the U.S. Military Academy, and with the talent returning along with an exciting freshman class, Army will be a team to be reckoned with in 2010. Second-year head coach Stefanie Golan and her staff have the players optimistic about the upcoming season. “It is a new year and a new team and we are excited,” noted Golan, just the second person to hold the head coaching position. “Our expectations are high and would not be if we didn’t think we were capable of being successful. “We are a young team (18 of the 28-player roster is made up of underclassmen), so we will have our ups and downs during the course of the season. Consistency will be a big question mark. We are focusing on what we do on a daily basis, and it is about creating habits to where consistency just happens. We would like to have it in place by the time we open our Patriot League schedule in October.” The Black Knights return a solid nucleus of 13 letterwinners from last year’s team that went 7-102 along with an abundance of young talent in a freshman class numbering 15. The newcomers are being counted on to fill a number of spots in the lineup with as many as four pushing to be in the rotation at season’s start with three others in the wings. A strong group of veterans will help the newcomers make the transition easier with seniors Alex Lostetter and Kelley Robbins providing leadership and team cohesiveness as the co-captains. Army will have a different look and be a better team with the level of play higher, which will make it harder to win a starting position. The Black Knights will have a dominant defense, a solid group of midfielders, a dynamic attack, a strong goalkeeping corps and greater depth at all positions. “The greatest thing about the team after laying out each individual’s role is that we have a team that wants to win,” stated Golan. “What distinguish champions from other teams are those who are not on the field. If you buy into those roles day in and day out and give the same sort of effort regardless of whether or not you are going to be on the field, you push your teammates to continue to be better. I have a team that believes that they are part of every success or every failure.” GOALKEEPERS “Alex Lostetter and Monica Lee will battle for the starting spot in goal,” noted Golan. “Both are very capable and either one could start for any program that we play against. It is a nice problem to have two quality keepers with excellent dynamics between them. Freshman Chelsea Sapirman is a tremendous shot stopper who helps make the goalkeeper position to be one of our deepest.” Lostetter, a senior co-captain, is Army’s all-time leader in shutouts with 20 and ranks third in goalsagainst average (0.92). A starter in 49 of 51 games over the past three years, Lostetter posted four shutouts in 2009, playing in 15 games along with a 1.07 goals-against average. Lee, a junior, appeared in six games last year with starts in four en route to registering a 0.67 GAA along with a shutout.

Sapirman closed out her senior year at Liberty High with over 160 saves. DEFENSE “I feel we are a lot stronger then we have been in the back and that is a key area this fall as we look to shut down teams,” noted Golan. “We will be looking at Lindsay Gordon, Melissa McLaws, Carlie Turnnidge along with Molly McGuigan and Katie Wacker, while also vying for time will be Emily Carl and Steph Gower. “ Gordon, a junior, returned to the back after being moved up front last year. A technically sound and composed player who reads the game well, she was shifted in the spring to outside back where the left footed player will be an asset. McLaws, a consistent performer who gained experience last year drawing time in 18 games with 12 starts, is considered one of the most competitive and toughest players on the roster. Turnnidge, a senior, is a skilled player looking to improve her consistency in making herself and Army stronger in the back. Playing in the center is McGuigan, a freshman, who understands the game and reads it well. Wacker, another freshman projected for the starting lineup, is considered a strong attacking back that is confident and composed with the ball. Newcomers Carl and Gower will also vie for significant playing time. Carl’s athleticism, work rate and attitude will help her crack the lineup along with Gower, who can connect out of the back and could draw time as a central defender, outside defender or holding midfielder. MIDFIELD “We have a lot of depth and strength in the center of the midfield with the return of Dee Clegg, who is better than ever, while also in the mix is senior captain Kelly Robbins and freshman Kim An,” stated Golan. A consistent performer who has ranked among Army’s scoring leaders the past two years, Clegg, a junior, will lead the attack. She has excellent vision and playmaking ability and is a strong finisher. Clegg tied for the lead in goals (three) while finishing second in scoring (seven points) starting 17 of 18 matches in 2009. Robbins’ leadership as a co-captain will be invaluable helping the newcomers get acclimated to the college game, and is also expected to be an impact player in the center of the midfield. An, one of Army’s top recruits, is a dynamic attacking player who can dictate the tempo of the game. She has excellent distribution skills and is very efficient around the goal as a scorer or playmaker. Also vying for significant playing time are junior Christine Kaila, sophomores Caroline Rice and Marilinh Nguyen along with freshmen Donna Bennett and Ruthie Rosenberger. Rice finds herself in the mix as an attacking midfielder as well as on top. Nguyen is a technically gifted and creative athlete with speed, while Rosenberger can switch the point of attack and can strike from a distance. Bennett is a gritty player who service into the box is excellent and, along with Kaila, will compete for time in the midfield as well as up top.

SOCCER FORWARD “We struggled last year scoring goals,” explained Golan, “so much of our focus has been on developing a consistent attack. We moved Julia Stallard from the back to a forward role. A hard worker, she is strong on the ball and is the epitome of a player who puts the team above herself. Joey Molacek is an excellent recruit, while also in the mix are Caroline Rice and Erringer Helbling who I feel will be very effective.” Stallard is a gritty player who was capable of leading the attack out of the back last year appearing in all 19 games. Rice tallied a pair of goals in finishing tied for fourth place as a starter in 14 games, while Helbling is a flank player who has the ability to change the dynamics of the game by wreaking havoc for the opponent. Molacek is a goal scorer and a dynamic one-on-one attacker who excels in the attacking third where she is expected to make an immediate impact. SCHEDULE “Everyone on the schedule is a quality opponent,” noted Golan. “I feel that on any given day, the game could go either way. If we play to our potential in every game, there is not a game that we can’t win.” While Golan will be looking for consistency by the time Patriot League play begins in October, the Black Knights have nowhere to go but up in the conference as Army was picked in the bottom half of the preseason poll (seventh place). “Our goal is to finish in the top half of the conference and earn a berth to the Patriot League Tournament as any one of those four teams can win the title. The league is strong from top to bottom and we are excited to concentrate on that first step.”

Sophomore defender Melissa McLaws.

Q. What is the team’s strength this year? A: “Goalkeeping and more possession than we normally do as a team. A stronger group of midfielders allow us to be more dynamic in the attack, which should create more chances. We also have greater depth this year.” Q. How high are your expectations for 2010? A. “Our expectations will always be high, but right now, we are looking to take steps forward. Step one is to finish in the top half of the Patriot League standings so we can put ourselves in a position to be able to win the conference tournament and go back to the NCAAs (Army won the title in 2008).” Q. Last fall had to be a bit of a disappointment. (Army came up shy of earning a berth to the Patriot League Tournament) A. “Last year was necessary to take steps forward as a program. We had some issues to deal with that affected us on the field, but we are much better as a program this year for it. Sometimes you have to take a step backwards before you can move forward and that is what we did.” Q. What do you like most about being part of the Patriot League? A. “Every game is competitive and it always goes down to the wire in terms of who hosts the tournament and who will be in the tournament. There are some very good teams and an excellent group of coaches in this league.” Q. How will Army be offensively this year and where will the scoring come from? A. “We won’t really know until we start playing games, but we feel we will be much better in the

2010 SEASON OUTLOOK

Q&A WITH COACH GOLAN attacking third this year. The goals will come from many different sources including, but not limited to, Julia Stallard, Errin Helbling, Joey Molacek, Caroline Rice, Kim An, and Dee Clegg.” Q. How will Army be defensively and who are the stalwarts there? A. “We are also going to be better defensively. We have two amazing goalkeepers in Alex Lostetter and Monica Lee. In the back, we will get consistent solid play from Molly McGuigan, Carlie Turnnidge, Mel McLaws, Lindsay Gordon, and Katie Wacker. There are several other players who will do just fine when called upon as well.” Q. Do you plan to implement any changes to the style of play this year? A. “We will have a different look about us, but that’s all I’ll say about it.”

Senior co-captain Alex Lostetter.

Q. Will competition be equally fierce at all positions or is there one spot where it will be more intense than others? A.”There will be competition all over the pitch; however, the great thing about a team is that it is about the ‘TEAM’. It is about something bigger than any individual and while there will be competition, each player will understand her role. If she doesn’t start, she will go in fired up to raise the level and to make us a better team.” Q. What do you like about the schedule … is it easier or tougher than last year? A. “I don’t know how it compares to last year as this is a new team. I like that we have a schedule full of teams where the results could go either way on any given day. If we play well, I like our chances.”

ARMY 2 HOLY CROSS 1 Clinton Field (Saturday, Oct. 31) WEST POINT, N.Y. - The conditions were anything but favorable Saturday evening at Clinton Field, but neither the wind nor the heavy rain could deny the Army women’s soccer team on Senior Night when they sent out five firsties with a 2-1 win over Holy Cross in the regular-season finale for both teams. Senior Christine O’Leary scored the game winner in the second half, and classmate Brittany Fearnside recorded a career-high 10 saves. The Crusaders outshot Army 13-6 in the first and 14-5 in the second, including an 11 to 4 shots on goal margin, but despite the shot differential, the Black Knights never trailed. Junior Candice Bryan, who had a hand in both goals, opened the scoring with a header from 10 yards that ripped the right side of the Crusaders net that was set up by sophomore Christine Kaila’s free kick just seven minutes into the game. The goal was the second of the season for Bryan, who drew her eighth start, with Kaila recording her first assist. Holy Cross tied the game 1-1 just before halftime when Shelby Stand, who leads the league in goals, notched her 10th of the season with as shot to the right corner of the Army net at 43:10. Just 40 seconds after scoring the equalizer, another Stand attempt was punched away by Fearnside, making her first start of the season and career third, who finished with five stops in the first half. Heavy rain pelted the players throughout most of the first half, stopping just prior to halftime when a heavy fog rolled onto the field to give it an eerie look. The second half started out with monsoon-like conditions with heavy rain and high winds bringing in cold air, but the weather didn’t faze either team. The Crusaders took two of the first three shots on goal in the second half, but Army’s second found its way into the net when O’Leary beat Crusade keeper Mary Ferketic one-on-one with a shot to the right corner of the net in the 67th minute. Freshman Paige Alexander gave O’Leary the lead pass from Bryan. The goal was O’Leary’s second of the season and first career game winner. Five of Holy Cross’ 14 shots in the second half were on goal with Fearnside making three of her five second-half saves over the final 20 minutes. Her last came in the 87th minute when Stand, who had a game-high 13 shots, drilled a hard shot at the Army keeper. After making the save, the ball slipped from her grasp in front of the goal, but a defender quickly booted it away and with it any chance Holy Cross had of notching the equalizer.

Army captures the 2008 Patriot Leaugue title following a 1-0 overtime win over topseeded and host Navy at Glenn Warner Stadium.

The Naval Academy hosted its first ArmyNavy women’s soccer match the following year. Army disappointed a then-record crowd of 1,544 at Dewey Field, coming away with a 2-1 overtime decision. After a scoreless first half, Army’s Alexis Albano opened the scoring in the 62nd minute, then tallied the eventual game winner in OT after Navy’s Ashlee Orr knotted things up in regulation with a 30-yard shot late. The Black Knights would go on to win three more games, with two coming in overtime, to stretch their win streak over the Mids to five. Included in that string were two victories in 1997. The Black Knights again played the part of spoiler in front of another record crowd of more than 2,000 spectators at Dewey Field with a 1-0 decision in overtime. Army then held on for its second 1-0 victory in as many meetings during a first-round match at the Patriot League Tournament. That occasion marked the first of three consecutive encounters in the postseason for the two rivals. Following that 1-0 setback in the first round of the 1997 Patriot League Tournament, Navy turned the fortunes of the series south of the Mason-Dixon line by winning the next six tilts in the rivalry. After a pair of 2-0 victories during the 1998 campaign, the Midshipmen captured a 3-1 verdict at home during the regular season in 1999. The Mids ended Army’s season prematurely that year in the first round of the Patriot League Tournament with a 2-1 decision in overtime to run their mark to four in a row over the Black Knights. Navy would go on to score a pair of shutouts over Army in 2000 and 2001, pushing its winning streak to six straight where the Black Knights eventually halted the Midshipmen’s good luck. Army ended that run of success in 2002 with a 1-1 tie on a rainy, foggy evening at Clinton Field. It marked the first draw in series history and the fourth overtime contest. The host Black Knights drew first blood on an unassisted tally by Delaney Brown in the 54th minute. However, Navy’s Xochitl Piedra converted a penalty kick in the 81st minute to knot the score, and that was the way things ended after 120 minutes of play. Army won the regular-season title in 2002 with Navy finishing a very close second. It marked the first time that Army and Navy finished first and second, respectively, in the Patriot League standings. Seven years ago, Army snapped Navy’s eightgame unbeaten streak and began a modest string of success itself with back-to-back 1-0 decisions in 2004 and 2005. In 2004, behind freshman goalkeeper Devon Collins, Army loosened its rivals’ strangle-hold in the overall series, and Collins became the first plebe keeper to register a win over Navy in Academy history. Rebecca Garcia kept the momentum going for the Black Knights in 2005 with six saves in a 1-0 blanking of the Mids in Army’s third win in Annapolis and first since 1997. Army and Navy battled to a 0-0 double overtime draw the last time the teams met iat West Point in late October 2008, then met in the Patriot League championship game at Glenn Warner Stadium in November. It was the first time in conference history that Army and Navy met in the championship round and fourth time they faced

No. 3 Army dispatched top-seeded Navy on its home turf, 1-0, in a double-overtime championship win on senior Pia White’s game winner 5:15 into the second overtime. The victory clinched the second league title for the Black Knights (first since 1993) and first NCAA bid in program history. Navy, scoring a goal in each half, defeated Army 2-0 last year in Annapolis to pull ahead 10-8-2 in the series along with a 6-4-0 showing in Annapolis. It was Army’s first loss to the Midshipmen since 2007.

ARMY-NAVY SERIES

It is the most recognized intercollegiate rivalry in all of sports. Sport Magazine listed it among its Top 5 rivalries of all-time, to include professional and international competitions as well. Though the annual gridiron match garners most of the attention, the Army-Navy clash is the focal point of the schedule for 21 other programs at the two service academies. In the fall of 1986, women’s soccer joined the varsity ranks as Army’s newest sport. However, the booters would have to wait nine years before testing their mettle on the pitch against the Midshipmen. In 1994, Navy promoted its women’s soccer program to varsity status and joined the three-year-old Patriot League. After 20 meetings, six overtime affairs and four postseason encounters, Navy holds a slim 108-2 lead in the all-time series. The Army-Navy women’s soccer series has seen the pendulum swing from West Point to Annapolis with no game decided by more than two goals in the first 15 games. Eleven of the 20 contests have been decided by a goal, and two tilts have ended in a tie. Navy, which had one of the longest win streaks in the nation, set a series record with four goals in 2006, but in 2008 Army defeated Navy in double overtime in Annapolis, Md., to win the Patriot League title and automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The 21st chapter in the saga unfolds on Friday, Oct. 8, at West Point where the series is deadlocked at 3-3-2. Army’s last win at home was a 1-0 edging in 2004. Army dominated the series in its early stages, winning the first five encounters. The inaugural game took place at Clinton Field in 1994 with the hosts claiming a slim 2-1 victory over their counterparts. Army held Navy to just one shot in the second half, while pounding the Mids net with 18 shots of its own. That would prove to be a harbinger of things to come in what has been one of the closest contested rivalries in the two schools history. The first five outcomes were one-goal decisions; two decided in OT.

HISTORY


ARMY WOMEN’S SOCCER HISTORY

2010

®

In the spring of 1986, after spending several years at the club level, women’s soccer became a varsity sport and the “new kid on the block” at the United States Military Academy. The program has enjoyed a successful history, thriving for for 23 years due in large part to the leadership of coach Gene Ventriglia, who retired at the conclusion of the 2008 season after leading Army to its first NCAA bid.

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

2010 KEVIN ANDERSON Director of Athletics 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 20 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. This past fall, Army’s women’s volleyball team became West Point’s 10th 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 last spring. 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 year-long 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. Additionally, four Army teams earned NCAA Tournament appearances in 2005-06, highlighted by the women’s basketball team, which earned its 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 continued success of the Black Knights’ women’s basketball squad, which set a single season school record for victories at the Division I level. All three programs flourished again the following year with hockey earning its first Atlantic Hockey Association regular-season crown and the men’s basketball squad advancing in the Patriot League postseason for the second straight year, a first

since 1995 and 1996. Additionally, a young Black Knights’ baseball team captured its third regular season Patriot League championship in five years and Army’s women’s tennis team earned its fourth consecutive conference championship and accompanying NCAA berth. Three Army teams traveled to the NCAAs last season, headlined by the women’s soccer and baseball squads. The Black Knights’ baseball team gained national attention by reaching the finals of the Austin Regional and nearly upsetting national top seed and NCAA runnerup Texas in a “championship” game. Women’s soccer, meanwhile, made its first trip. Off the field, construction of the Foley Athletic Center, a spacious indoor practice facility for football, was completed in the winter of 2007. During Anderson’s time at West Point, Randall Hall, which houses offices, locker rooms and team rooms for men’s and women’s basketball, as well as luxury suites that overlook historic Michie Stadium, was also unveiled. Army’s fabled football home received additional state-of-the-art amenities with the installation of a new FieldTurf playing surface and a sparkling 30-foot-by-50-foot scoreboard, complete with a 20-foot-by-50-foot high-definition video board. In the last year alone, Anderson led the searches that resulted in the hiring of Rich Ellerson as Army’s 36th head football coach, Zach Spiker as the Black Knights’ 30th men’s basketball mentor and Russell Payne as Army’s 11th men’s soccer field boss. In Ellerson’s first season, Army fell one win shy of earning its first postseason bowl bid in 13 years last fall. Anderson was also instrumental in negotiating a broadcast extension with CBS Sports to televise the Army-Navy football game through 2018, a new national television deal with CBS College Sports Network for Army’s football program, separate contracts with three different cities to serve as host for future Army-Navy games, and a landmark agreement with the New York Yankees that will result in Army’s football team playing one game in each of the next six seasons at Yankee Stadium. As part of the deal, Army will battle Notre Dame later this fall in the first college football game to be played at the Yankees’ majestic new home. In the last year alone, Anderson has secured postseason bowl tie-ins for Army’s football team for each of the next four years. Prior to his most recent hectic stretch, Anderson brokered major broadcast agreements for Army’s football program with ESPN and WABC Radio (770AM), as well as aligning the Black Knights’ athletics teams with Nike, as part of a significant apparel deal, and Learfield Sports Properties. The Army “A” Club has continued to flourish under Anderson’s leadership, establishing school records for annual giving during each of his five 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. Anderson took residence in Corvallis, Ore., in December 2002 after serving as executive associate athletic director for external affairs at the University of California. He joined the California staff in November 1997 as assistant athletic director for annual programs and was promoted to associate athletic director for development, tickets and the Bears’ baseball team in March 1999. Before accepting his position with the Golden Bears, Anderson served as area executive director of the YMCA of the East Bay from 1995 to 1997. He was director of annual giving with Stanford University’s athletic department from 1993 to 1995. Anderson graduated from San Francisco State University in 1979 with a bachelor’s degree in political science. He is also a 1981 graduate of the Xerox Corporation’s New Manager School and the Xerox Marketing School in 1986. He completed the executive management program at the Sports Management Institute in 1995. In addition to his duties at West Point, Anderson has served as chairman for the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) Division I-A Athletic Directors McClendon Minority Scholarship Steering Committee and is a member of the NCAA’s Basketball Academic Enhancement Group. He also serves as chairman of the Division I Men’s Basketball Issues Committee and was elected Third Vice President of NACDA this past June. Kevin and his wife, Moira, have four children: daughters, Olivia and Michaela; and sons, Kevin Jr. and Chauncey.
