USMA 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,

2011 Army Gymnastics Media Guide

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 selfdirected 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 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.” espect 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 wellrounded 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.

“From the birth of our existence, America has had a faith in the future -- a belief that where we’re going is better than where we’ve been, even when the path ahead is uncertain. To fulfill that promise, generations of Americans have built upon the foundation of our forefathers -- finding opportunity, fighting injustice, forging a more perfect union. Our achievement would not be possible without the Long Gray Line that has sacrificed for duty, for honor, for country.” - PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA 2011 Army Gymnastics Media Guide


Why West Point “My four years at West Point were wonderful. I loved every minute of it and particularly the last three years. I loved the history. I loved the tradition. I liked wearing the uniform. I felt like I belonged there. Everything was meaningful to me. There is no question in my mind the proudest day of my father’s life was the day I graduated from West Point. There is a picture of the two of us standing on ‘The Plain’ and he is just beaming.” - GENERAL H. NORMAN SCHWARZKOPF “I was so proud to be on the verge of entering the only institution in American society at that time that was totally integrated, in which I would have the opportunity to rise, based solely on performance and ability. The nation always looks to West Point and always looks to each and every one of you to follow always the angels of your nature.” - GENERAL COLIN POWELL

NORMAN SCHWARZKOPF

“In every corner of America, the words ‘West Point’ command immediate respect. This place where the Hudson River bends is more than a fine institution of learning. The United States Military Academy is the guardian of values that have shaped the soldiers who have shaped the world.” - PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH “How great it must be, gosh how great it must be to be a member of this Corps. To know that camaraderie of discipline, of manners, of courtesy, of human sensibility, of one’s duty to his fellow man.” - JOURNALIST WALTER CRONKITE COLIN POWELL

Why West Point “Any of us who went through the process; anyone who felt the flame of that furnace, came away altered in the way we go about running our lives. Some part of it is the belief that you are not only doing it for personal glory, but you do it because it is your responsibility. It’s part of being a member of The Corps and each of us that have felt that magic feel especially privileged to have done so.” - HEISMAN TROPHY WINNER PETE DAWKINS

PETE DAWKINS

“As I look back over my career in government, in business, of course in the military, I think West Point was a very influential experience. It hardened a sense of discipline, a sense of responsibility, duty and integrity and also very happily combined an alertness of mind and body.” - FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE ALEXANDER HAIG “For here we train the men and women whose duty it is to defend the Republic, the men and women whose profession is watchfulness, whose skill is vigilance, whose calling is to guard the peace, but if need be, to fight and win.” - PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN

“WEST POINT IS THE RING. IT’S THE FOUNDATION OF EVERYTHING I HAVE DONE.” - MIKE KRZYZEWSKI ‘69 ALEXANDER HAIG

Why West Point “In the evening of my memory, always I come back to West Point. Always there echoes and re-echoes ... Duty -- Honor -- Country. Today marks my final roll call with you. But I want you to know, when I cross the river, my last conscious thoughts will be of The Corps ... and The Corps ... and The Corps ...” - GENERAL DOUGLAS MacARTHUR

“As I look back on my life, I’ll always revere the opportunities that came along that brought about the choice I made to go to West Point. I just feel that it was fundamental in molding the fabric of my life. The experiences that I had at West Point, they were irreplaceable.” - ASTRONAUT EDWIN “BUZZ” ALDRIN

DOUGLAS MacARTHUR

“You have ahead of you the best of all professions. Being a leader is the best thing you can possibly be and you’re at a school that will make you the best possible leader. West Point is the ring. It’s the foundation of everything I have done.” - HEAD COACH MIKE KRZYZEWSKI

“This nation is grateful that four years ago every man and woman graduating today made a life-changing decision. You left the comforts and familiar surroundings of civilian life, and devoted yourselves to one of the noblest professions in a free country--the profession of arms.” - FORMER VICE PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY

“West Point’s graduates have served America in many, many ways. Not only by leading troops into combat, but also by exploring frontiers, founding universities, laying out the railroads, building the Panama Canal, running corporations, serving in the Congress and The White House, and walking on the moon. Through our history, whenever duty called, the men and women of West Point have never failed us, and I speak for all Americans when I say, I know you never will.” - PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON 2011 Army Gymnastics Media Guide

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.

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.

Doug Van Everen Army’s gymnastics program ascended to new heights since the inauguration of the Doug Van Everen era at West Point in 1990. Now in his second decade, the level of success the 21-year mentor has reached is the reason the Black Knights continually rank among the nation’s leaders. Van Everen reached milestones in 2004 and 2005, leading Army to its first team bid to the NCAA Championships since 1963 as the No. 12 seed in 2004. The Black Knights made a return trip the following year after capturing their first ECAC title in 44 years, earning the automatic bid along with grabbing the No. 11 spot. The veteran mentor was presented with his 100th win along the banks of the Hudson on March 6, 2005, in a road victory at Springfield just one year after posting his 100th career coaching victory over Navy in Annapolis, Md. Van Everen has compiled a 55-37 mark over the past eight years, including a 13-1 record in 2003, along with an 11-1 showing that accompanied the ECAC Championship in 2005. After finishing runner-up for the Eastern title in 2003 and 2004, Van Everen and his Black Knights reached the pinnacle of college gymnastics on the East Coast in 2005 when they secured the Academy’s first Eastern crown since 1962. Army has also dominated the service academy rivalry during Van Everen’s tenure at West Point, sweeping the first seven All-Academy Championships along with compiling a 15-1 dual mark against Air Force and a 12-3 verdict versus Navy during that span. Under Van Everen’s tutelage, the Black Knights ranked as high as No. 9 nationally in 2003 and 2004, and listed 10th in 2005. Since taking over the program in 1990, Van Everen shows a .500 mark (124-124) at West Point. His teams have been well represented individually at the NCAA Championships, while qualifying as a team in 2004, 2005 and 2007. The Black Knights qualified individually in 2006 when injuries decimated their ranks, while a school-record 12 individuals met the standard in 2003. Committed to excellence, Van Everen is one of the most respected coaches in his profession. He was awarded East Regional “Coach of the Year” honors on the eve of the 2005

Page 16

NCAA Championships, hosted by the U.S. Military Academy. It was the third time in his tenure and second over a three-year span that he garnered that award. The honor came two weeks after guiding the Black Knights to an 11-1 record and their first ECAC Championship since 1962. For that achievement, he copped ECAC “Coach of the Year” accolades for the second time. His gymnasts defeated defending ECAC champion and NCAA qualifier Temple during a 12-meet win streak in 2003 for their best start since 1979 en route to a 13-1 mark. That momentum carried into the postseason with a pair of runner-up finishes at the ECAC and USAGC Championships, while closing with an NCAA AllAmerica certfiicate, five USAGC All-Americans and one USAGC national champion. An excellent recruiter, Van Everen has coached several of the finest gymnasts in Army history. Under his guidance, Imad Haque, Ben Hayward, Mike Sivulka, Steve Marshall, Dustin Greenhill, Troy Pazcoguin, Matt Eckerman, John Robella and Brian Lee all laid claim to national and regional honors. He has tutored four NCAA All-Americans along with 16 Eastern champions. Haque, a 1993 and 1994 Eastern still rings champion, was the first All-American coached by Van Everen following a sixth-place finish at the 1994 NCAA Championships. Hayward was a three-time Eastern pommel horse champion, who added an All-America certificate to his brilliant career following a fifthplace finish at the NCAAs in 1997. Greenhill and Lee finished runner-up on the parallel bars (2003) and still rings (2005), respectively, for

the highest showing in Van Everen’s tenure. Also claiming Eastern titles were Sivulka, Marshall, Pazcoguin, Eckerman, Robella, Lee and Mike Oliveira (2005), with George Rhynedance (2006) and Eliot Proctor (2007) the latest additions. Sivulka, a two-time Eastern pommel horse champion (1994 and 1995), ranked No. 1 in the nation throughout most of his junior year and was among the national leaders at season’s end. A parallel bars Eastern champion in 1995, Marshall captured the all-around title the following year to become the first Black Knight to win that crown since 1939. Marshall ranked as high as second nationally in all-around throughout his senior year, and was among the top 10 in each of the six individual events. He also earned a spot on the senior national team in 1995 and was third on the vault at the USA Championships. Marshall was inducted into the Army Sports Hall of Fame with the second class in 2005. Pazcoguin ranked among the national leaders on vault his junior and senior campaigns and was a four-time NCAA qualifier. He was tabbed the “Senior Athlete of the Year” at the Eastern Championships in 2002 after garnering rookie honors in 1999. Eckerman became just the second Black Knight to capture an Eastern crown on floor exercise and first since 1980 when he claimed the title in 2002, while Robella won that crown the following year. Lee captured Army’s first still rings crown in 10 years at the 2004 meet. He also finished sixth on the rings at the Winter Cup Challenge and ranked No. 2 in the country all season. Oliveira was just the third sophomore under Van Everen to win a title when he copped medalist honors on parallel bars at the 2005 meet. Rhynedance made school history in 2006 when he joined his father George Sr. (1980) as an Eastern champion. Four Army gymnasts earned five USAGC All-America certificates at the 2003 championships. Lee, crowned a national champion on still rings, joined Mike Tiffany (parallel bars, still rings), Chris Kennedy (pommel horse) and Robella (high bar) in garnering All-America honors. Robella was also named a USA Gymnastics scholar-athlete. All but one of 14 school records (team and individual) were shattered during Van Everen’s tenure before a new scoring system was implemented in 2008 geared towards an openending scoring system. Four years ago Army rebroke the school vault record during a period when the rules for scoring made it difficult to receive high marks. Van Everen guided the Black Knights to

Carmine Giglio When Carmine Giglio joined Army’s gymnastics staff 11 years ago, head coach Doug Van Everen gained a skilled and talented assistant who helped him bring the Black Knights to the forefront of collegiate gymnastics. As two of the most respected coaches in the field, the Army duo were honored at the conference and national level in 2005, earning four coaching awards between them. Giglio was the recipient of the College Gymnastics Association (CGA) National Assistant Coach of the Year award shortly after copping ECAC “Assistant of the Year” accolades, and Van Everen earned ECAC and CGA East Regional “Coach of the Year” honors. They guided Army to an 11-1 record that year and its first ECAC Championship since 1962. Since his arrival at West Point, the Black Knights have sported an overall record of 69-45 (.605) and have crowned an Eastern League individual champion seven of the last 10 years. In 2004, Army earned its first bid to the NCAA Men’s Gymnastics Championships since 1963, then won its first ECAC title in 44 years the following spring along with the automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. Army sent a school-record 12 individual qualifiers to the NCAAs by his third season (2003), along with back-to-back runnerup honors at the ECAC Championships in 2003 and 2004. Giglio has helped Army win the All-Academy title seven straight years along with a 15-1 showing against Air Force and 13-3 versus Navy en route to compiling a dual winning percentage of 88 percent (28-4) over its service-academy rivals during that span. His first season (2001) was marked by the Black Knights posting their highest winning percentage (.727) at the time under Van Everen, along with an Eastern League champion and a record eight gymnasts qualifying for the NCAA Championships. Army defeated Navy three times during the

Page 18

season en route to an 8-3 mark. His second season saw Army crown its first Eastern champion on floor exercise since 1980, along with six gymnasts qualifying for the NCAA Championship meet. Army also defended its title at the All-Academy Championships, outpointing both Navy and Air Force. The 2003-2005 seasons have proven to be the most superb in school history. In 2003, Army authored a 13-1 mark (.929), posted a pair of second place finishes at the ECAC and USAGC Championships, qualified a record 12 individuals for the NCAA Championships and claimed an All-American. The Black Knights crowned an ECAC champion and USAGC national champion along with five USAGC All-America certificates.

The 2004 campaign at that point was the finest under Van Everen and Giglio with Army earning a berth to the NCAA Championships following a second-place finish at the ECAC Championships, where the Black Knights crowned their first ECAC still rings champion in ten years. Wins over Navy and Air Force once again were included in Army’s 10-4 mark. The 2005 season was highlighted by Army’s first ECAC title since 1962, an 11-1 record along with crowning an Eastern champion. George Rhynedance captured an Eastern title on the high bar in 2006 and Eliot Proctor followed on the parallel bars in 2007. As a collegian, Giglio enjoyed a standout career at Western Michigan. The three-time captain became the first Bronco to qualify for the NCAA Championships in all-around following a ninth-place finish at the East Regionals his senior campaign. After earning his bachelor’s degree in exercise science with a minor in health in 1990, Giglio began his coaching career on the staff at the International Gymnastics School. During that three-year period, he also competed at the 1992 USA Gymnastics Championships and the 1993 Winter Cup Challenge. A native of Syracuse, N.Y., Giglio won state titles in the all-around, pommel horse and horizontal bars in leading Henninger High School to the No. 1 state ranking in 1985.

Coaches Perspective West Point offered me an educational opportunity so different, and so challenging from any other, the decision to attend was easy. The level of talent on the gymnastics team was extraordinary at that time, and having the chance to work with that group remains a significant highlight in my athletic career. Talented athletes like Matt Holm, Bob Boggs, and Arnie Ferrando, and tough coaches like Ned Crossley and Eric Malmberg demanded a high standard of work and performance that marked West Point as a leader in collegiate gymnastics - as it is now. While I am a product of the leader development program at West Point, I’m happy to have had the added benefit of being an athlete, as it was there that I really learned how to lead. -- George H. Rhyndance IV (USMA 1980) Army’s first Eastern champion on floor exercise (1980)

“West Point gives you more than any other university can. You don’t just come out with a degree. Every single minute that you spend at the academy - from the most mundane day to day things to the major milestones and challenges - shapes the person that you are going to be and prepares you for the toughest and most rewarding lifestyle you can lead. I wanted that type of experience; I wanted my college experience to make me into something more than every other person with a bachelor’s degree. I wouldn’t trade the hard work, late nights, unbreakable friendships, or even the mud, rain, and snow for anything.” -- George H. Rhynedance V (USMA 2007) Eastern high bar champion – joining father as the only father-son duo in Army history to claim titles. “Coaching at West Point for my ninth season is a privilege and honor. Working with our nation’s best student athletes is a humbling experience. It seems like the program gets stronger and stronger with every passing year. One day in the not so distant future, Army will contend for the National title again. “ --Assistant Coach Carmine Giglio

“West Point offers student athletes a challenge in all areas. I believe many young students want this challenge. Also, one can really meet their goals as an athlete and clearly a student. It is much easier to advance as a gymnast at other programs, but we recruit, train and produce quality champions that are well rounded.” -- Head Coach Doug Van Everen

Coach Doug Van Everen proved early in his Army career that he is a master builder, having crowned 16 Eastern championships along with four All-Americans during his 20-year career. Army has faced a few bumps in the road the last three years, but Van Everen has been busy during that time laying a strong foundation that is well on its way to turning the program around in 2011 Youth will once again be prominent on the team as 69 percent of the Black Knights’ roster will be made up of sophomores and freshmen among the 11 returning veterans and a talented cast of four newcomers. Junior Jonathan Hoey (high bar) and sophomores Garrek Hojan-Clark (pommel horse) and Kip Webber (floor exercise) qualified for last year’s NCAA Championships, and join senior captain Tim Tieng in helping spearhead a solid nucleus. Considering the fact that only three members of the squad have competed at the NCAAs, Van Everen acknowledges that there will be a lot of work ahead to continue to step up to the next level and be competitive. “Right now we just need more muscle in the events,” acknowledged Van Everen. “I feel this year that we will be able to beat teams that we struggled against the past three years, but we need to have a good meet in order to beat them. “Once again we have an exceptional freshman class that will blend well with a sophomore class that made an immediate impact last year.” The Black Knights will be on the road for all but four of 13 meets in 2011, and once again will be tested early when they open their season for the eighth consecutive year against Penn State. The Nittany Lions are ranked seventh in GymInfo’s preseason poll and the Black Knights were picked 15th. The Black Knights will celebrate their 20th year of hosting the West Point Open (Jan. 14-15). It is one of the most popular and highly competitive meets on the East Coast and serves as a tune-up for the Winter Cup Classic in February. Army will host Navy in February followed by the annual All-Academy Championships, with the month of March highlighted by the College National Championships. Then it is on to the Eastern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Championships and the NCAA Championships in April. FLOOR EXERCISE The event will be one of Army’s best this year with sophomore Kip Webber leading the way. He qualified individually last year for the NCAA Championships, and just missed the cutoff (top three) among the individual qualifiers to advance. He closed out the season ranked 39th nationally with a 14.52 average. Junior Chase Brown and sophomores Ikaika Jakub and Jared Breeden will also be key contributors along with newcomer Ian Howard, with added depth provided by senior Nolan Melson. “We have five good tumblers and should do very well in this event,” stated head coach Doug Van Everen. “I feel with the talent we have, that we should be able to beat almost everyone in the East in this event.”

POMMEL HORSE Army has two outstanding horsemen in sophomore Garrek Hojan-Clark and junior Jonathan Hoey. Hojan-Clark qualified for the NCAA Championships as a freshman last year, along with earning All-East honors at the ECAC Championships. He set a school record of 14.9, and ranked 22nd nationally at season’s end. He is currently working on the highest degree of difficulty in this event and is expected to be one of the most dominant performers on the East Coast. Hoey medaled (sixth) at the West Point Open in 2010 and closed out the year ranked in the top 75 nationally with a 13.1 average. A threat on the horse with two years of experience to draw upon, he will be counted upon for consistent scores. Additional depth will be provided by sophomore Gregory Fearnley, who made an immediate impact last year, along with all-arounders Kip Webber and Ikaika Jakub. STILL RINGS An event Army will struggle in this year, but one that has three solid gymnasts in sophomores Jared Breeden, Kip Webber and Ikaika Jakub who are capable of putting up top scores. Junior Jonathan Hoey and senior Nolan Melson will provide strong filler routines. Breeden turned in two of Army’s top-three scores last year, including a teambest 14.05, while Jakub tied his classmate for the third best mark of 13.9. “Still rings could end up hurting us, but it is also one of those events that if you have all the parts, you will score,” noted Army coach Doug Van Everen. VAULT The lineup is comparable to last year and is in good shape with a few of the gymnasts doing mid-level degrees of difficulty. Kip Webber, who set a school record of 15.9 last year as a freshman, has been working on a hand spring double vault that not only will make an impact in meets, but could lead to an Eastern title. He will be complemented by classmate Ikaika Jakub and senior captain Tim Tieng. Army is deep in this event and is capable of providing four to five top scores, with added depth provided by sophomore Jared Breeden, freshman Nick Miles along with all-arounder Kip Webber. This was another event that freshman Andrew Avelino, an all-arounder, was expected to be counted on prior to his preseason injury. PARALLEL BARS Most improved among the events this year, parallel bars will be an important factor in Army’s success with the return of Chase Brown, Ikaika Jakub, Tim Tieng, Nicholas Fettinger and Kip Webber. Jakub and Tieng tied for a team-best 14.1 in that event last year followed by 14.0s by Brown and Fettinger. “We are a lot stronger in this event than we were last year. Everyone back is significantly better, stronger and cleaner, so ultimately we are going to be so much better,” noted Coach Van Everen. HIGH BAR Junior Jonathan Hoey, an NCAA participant last year, is the top competitor in this event with a team-best 13.9. Chase Brown, Tim Tieng, Ikaika Jakub, Garrek Hojan-Clark and Kip Webber provide depth along with rounding out the bulk of the scoring. Brown posted a personal-best 13.55 last year, with Webber also breaking into the 13-point range. Newcomer Andrew Avelino is dominant in this event and will be sorely missed, having been sidelined this season due to a preseason injury.

Garrek Hojan-Clark set a school-record 14.9 on pommel horse last year.

2011 Army Gymnastics Media Guide

OVERVIEW “We are young, but our sophomore class as a whole is significantly stronger,” explained Van Ever. “We want to finish among the top three this year at the ECAC championships and are hopeful of crowning a champion or two. “Tim (Tieng), our team captain, is a strong leader who leads by example. He is rock solid across and works hard and is very consistent. In the sophomore class, Kip (Webber) is more confident this year; Garrek (Hojan-Clark) is looking very strong; Ikaika (Jakub) has improved a lot; and Nick (Fettinger) is a solid performer.” Though Army faces an uphill battle at season’s start, it has a good mix of veterans and youth that will blend into one solid unit in time for a postseason run.

The ECAC The Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) is the nation’s largest athletic conference and only multidivisional conference, with approximately 300 Division I, II and III colleges and universities from Maine to North Carolina and westerly to Illinois. Established in 1938 with 58 charter members, the ECAC has since emerged as the nationwide leader in service. The Asa S. Bushnell Center, named after inaugural commissioner Asa S. Bushnell, serves as the main office for the ECAC. It is located n Centerville, Massachusetts on Cape Cod. After Asa S. Bushnell molded the organization from its formation to his retirement in 1970, George Schiebler took over as commissioner from 1970-1972. Robert M. “Scotty” Whitelaw (1972-1989) guided the ECAC through one of the most significant events in its history, as the Eastern Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (EAIAW) was consolidated into the ECAC in 1983. With the addition of women’s sports, the ECAC doubled its number of championships and greatly increased its membership. Clayton Chapman (1989-1998), Phil Buttafuoco (1998-2006), and Steve Bamford (2006-2007) have also carried the title of commissioner through the last 21 years. Current commissioner Rudy Keeling assumed chief administrator duties on May 1, 2007. As Commissioner, Keeling has revealed a new strategic plan for the ECAC emphasizing membership services, conference office operations, academic and athletic excellence and equity as well as diversity and inclusion.

ASA S. BUSHNELL INTERNSHIP PROGRAM The prestigious Asa S. Bushnell internship program, named after the first commissioner of the ECAC and established in 1976, offers college graduates from ECAC member institutions handson expereince in all the areas of the only multi-divisional conference int he country.

2011 Army Gymnastics Media Guide


History Army, which ushers in its 83rd gymnastics season in 2009, celebrated its 80th season of intercollegiate competition in 2005 by capturing its first ECAC title in over 40 years and hosting the NCAA Men’s Division 1 Gymnastics Championships. Head coach Doug Van Everen has tutored two All-Americans in the past four seasons, restoring Army gymnastics’ proud tradition and making the Black Knights the “Beast of the East” for the first time since the 1960s. With more than 500 career dual match victories to its credit, Army enters the 2009 campaign caught in a rebuilding season. Van Everen brought in a talented freshman class that he feels will play a key role next year when the Black Knights host the NCAA Championships at West Point. THE EARLY YEARS Francis Dohs, the program’s first head coach, mentored the gymnastics squad for nearly six years, resigning after six meets in 1931 with an overall record of 19-18. His successor, Thomas E. Maloney, set the stage for all future West Point gymnasts and head coaches by establishing the Cadets as one of the nation’s elite programs. He enjoyed immense success as Army’s head coach for the next 36 years, leaving as the Academy’s all-time winningest head coach — a distinction he still holds today. From 1931 to 1966, Maloney’s charges compiled a 211-34-6 (.853) mark and captured 11 Eastern titles, nine of those outright. A total of 11 Maloney-coached teams were undefeated, and his 1934 squad was the first to win an Eastern championship.

Horseman Richard Berry competes in 1924, two years before gymnastics became a varsity sport.

One of the most successful gymnasts to come out of the Academy during the Maloney era was Robert Sears, who closed out his career as a three-time national champion. He was the first Black Knight to win a national title on the horizontal bar and rope climb in 1938, and repeated as the rope climb champion in 1939. The following year, the Army team captain was crowned a national champion on parallel bars while Ray Belardi won the rope climb in leading the Black Knights to a secondplace finish at the NCAA Herbert Richardson (middle), a 1941 All-American in the rope climb, is joined by John O’Keefe (left) and Richard Maybee (right).

A member of the Army Air Corps during THE LARRY BUTLER ERA Larry Butler, an assistant on Ned CrossWorld War II, Sears earned the Distinguished ley’s staff, took over the head reigns of the Flying Cross and two Air Medals. He was a prisoner of war, but escaped from his German program from 1986 through 1990. Butler compiled a 51-33 (.607) mark that captors. He later served in Korea (1953-54). included third and fourth place finishes at the Sears was a member of the inaugural Army eastern/EIGL Championships. He compiled Sports Hall of Fame class in 2004.

Glen C., a team captain in 1923, as the only father-son combination in Army history to serve in that capacity. THE NED CROSSLEY ERA In 1972-73, Ned Crossley took over the program and authored a very successful 10845 mark during his 12-year reign. Crossley’s finest team was the 1978-79 squad that went 14-1, while his 1975-76 and 1979-80 teams posted identical 13-1 records. He also developed three Eastern champions — Scott Shorr (1978) and Chris Adams (1982) on the vault and George Rhynedance (1980) on floor exercise. Rhynedance shared first-place honors at Easterns on floor exercise in 1980 along with a second place on the high bar and third on vault. He qualified for the NCAA Championships and just missed the finals on vault and the high bar.

THE DOUG VAN EVEREN ERA Taking over the reins in 1991, Van Everen restored Army’s proud tradition on both the regional and national scenes in a very short period of time. Ten of his gymnasts have combined to win 16 Eastern titles and four All-America certificates in Van Everen’s 18 years at West Point. Brian Lee added the latest All-America deed to Van Everen’s resume on the still rings in 2005. 1990-95 WITH VAN EVEREN In 1993, Imad Haque became Army’s first Eastern champion since 1987 after tying for first place on still rings to earn a trip to the NCAAs. Ranked as high as No. 3 nationally, Haque broke his own school record with a 9.80 against Syracuse and tied it in a win over Navy.

Page 41


History Haque defended his title in 1994, bettered his school mark (9.9), while his second trip to the NCAAs earned him All-America honors after finishing sixth. He was among the eight national finalists for the Nissen Award – handed out to the country’s top male gymnast. In 1994, Steve Marshall, Mike Sivulka, Haque and James Lewis qualified for the NCAA East Regionals, while also earning trips to nationals. Sivulka, who won an Eastern title on pommel horse, just missed the finals at the national meet in placing 11th. Marshall tied for 16th in the all-around and Lewis ranked 36th on floor exercise. 1996-99 WITH VAN EVEREN In 1995, Marshall and Sivulka ranked among the national leaders and once again qualified for the NCAA Regionals. Sivulka held the nation’s top spot on the pommel horse into late March. He tied for first place at the EIGLs in defending his title. In spite of shattering his school mark at regionals, Sivulka fell short of qualifying for the NCAAs. Marshall competed on vault and the allaround in his second trip to the NCAAs. He finished two spots shy of All-America honors after placing eighth on the vault. He was 20th in all-around. Ranked nationally in all-around scoring since his freshman year, Marshall listed as high as second in the country and in the Top 10 in the six individual events. After winning the all-around title at the Eastern meet, the first Black Knight since 1939 to do so, Marshall injured his ankle on his dismount on high bar in the first event during competition at the NCAA East Regional meet. Limited to competing only on the pommel horse, he placed ninth overall and second among the individual qualifiers, good enough to earn an NCAA bid where he finished 35th. Marshall became the second gymnast inducted into the Army Sports Hall of Fame in November 2005. Ben Hayward wrote the headlines the next three years. In 1997, he won the Eastern title on the pommel horse and qualified for the East Regionals along with team captain Peter Gizzi, Mike Bush and freshman Jason Delmarty. Ben Hayward went on to finish runner-up on the horse at regionals to earn a trip to the NCAAs, marking the fifth straight year Army sent a representative to the national competition. There, he copped All-America honors following a fifth-place finish, becoming just the eighth Black Knight to earn that certificate on the horse and first since Olympian Gar O’Quinn in 1958.

The 2004 team went 10-4 and finished runner-up at the 2004 ECAC Championships. In 1999, Hayward captured his third straight pommel horse title and freshman Troy Pazcoguin was named the ECAC “Rookie of the Year.” Hayward closed out his career by qualifying for the NCAA East Regional for the fourth straight year and was joined by Pazcoguin and Delmarty. Hayward tied for fourth on the horse at regionals and Pazcoguin shared 14th place on the parallel bars as both qualified for the NCAA Championships. It was the second trip to the nationals for Hayward, who at one point ranked first in the nation on the horse. At the NCAAs, Hayward tied for 13th place on the horse and

Pazcoguin shared 36th on parallel bars. 2000-05 WITH VAN EVEREN In the first year of the new millennium, the Black Knights sent six gymnasts to the nationals in a new format that had the East and West regions competing together. Scott Harris and John Robella ranked third in the East on floor exercise and parallel bars, respectively, and Pazcoguin (vault) was seventh in 2000. A new scoring format posed a difficult challenge of lower scores and more difficult routines, but Army thrived as a record-high eight Black Knights qualified for the 2001 NCAA

History Championships along with posting an 8-3 dual mark. Army’s contingent was the secondlargest among the 56 individual qualifiers. Pazcoguin, making his third straight NCAA appearance, advanced to the preliminary round where he tied for fifth. Earlier he was crowned an Eastern champion on vault and was runner-up on high bar, leading Army to a fifth-place finish at the ECAC Championships. In 2002, Army defeated Air Force in dedicating its new facility, Lou Gross Sports Center, in mid-February, and then successfully defended its All-Academy Championship later in the month. Eckerman was crowned an Eastern champion on floor exercise, becoming only the second gymnast in Army history to win that event. Pazcoguin was selected the ECAC “Senior Athlete of the Year.” Pazcoguin qualified for the NCAA Championships, meeting the standard in all-around for the third consecutive year. Robella and Matt Eckerman also qualified for the third straight year. Robella became Army’s second gymnast under the new scoring format to advance to the preliminary round following a ninth-place finish on floor exercise, but fell short of qualifying for the finals after tying for 16th place. In 2003, Army defeated Navy and Air Force twice during the dual meet season, and snapped a five-meet losing streak to Temple. Army ranked as high as No. 9 nationally in the GymInfo poll for its best showing under Doug Van Everen. Following a second-place finish at the ECAC Championships, the Black Knights qualified their largest individual contingent (12) for the national meet. Senior team captain Dustin Greenhill closed out his career with All-America honors on parallel bars following a second-place finish at the NCAAs. He is just the fourth Army gymnast to earn accolades in that event. Lee, who finished ninth at the NCAAs on still rings, was one of four Black Knights to earn USAGC All-America honors that year after being crowned a national champion in his specialty. Freshman Mike Tiffany earned a pair of certificates on parallel bars and still rings with Robella (high bar) and freshman Chris Kennedy (pommel horse) rounding out the AllAmerica USAGC list.

Strength Development

O’MEARA, MALEK, DAWKINS CLASS OF 1959 STRENGTH DEVELOPMENT CENTER An integral component in Army’s intercollegiate athletic program is the strength and conditioning department. 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, the O’Meara, Malek, Dawkins, Class of 1959 Strength Development Center rivals any training facility in the country.

Army in the Community The men’s gymnastics team falls in line with the rest of West Point’s varsity teams when it comes to visibility in the community. The Black Knights take great pride in reaching out to youth as well as serving as role models. A trip to Texas in 2008 for the All-Academy Championships also resulted in a visit to Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston by the Cadets and coaching staff, where they performed for the young patients along with bearing gifts. The team’s latest outing has been at Black Knights Alley, a family fun zone prior to Army home football games. The gymnasts entertained the crowd by walking on their hands and spinning on a mat to get their attention, then drew raves with their vaults.

Army in the Community The Black Knights flew over volunteers from former Army Athletic Director Kevin Anderson, to a group of Boy Scouts, a women’s basketball player, a group of Cadets wearing Stetsons, along with the Army mule. They were such a popular group of entertainers that they were asked to perform twice this past fall. Army’s cadet-athletes have a uniqueness about them, which make them ideal role models for today’s youth, and the gymnastics team plans to continue that trend throughout the season

NCAA Championships 2010 NCAA Championships at Christl Arena, April 15-17, 2010 Christl Arena, inside Holled Center, on the site of the U.S. Military Academy, as the host for the 68th NCAA Men’s Gymnastics Championships April 15-17. It marked the third time that West Point has hosted this marqueet event. The first time was in 1950 in Hayes Gymnasium, which is inside today what is called Arvin Gymnasium. It would be over 55 years before Army would be the host site, first in 2005 and again last year. In 2005 Army qualified as a team for this event, claimed an All-American in Brian Lee on still rings (finished runnerup), while finishing 11th in the team scoring. Last year during a rebuilding season, four Black Knights were NCAA qualifiers.
