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

2011 ARMY CROSS COUNTRY


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 Pointʼs role in Americaʼs 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 Pointʼs 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 Americaʼs wartime reliance on foreign engineers and artillerists. West Point became the nationʼs 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 nationʼs 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 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 cadetʼs 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 todayʼs Army. Moral and ethical values guide cadets throughout their four years at West Point. Commitment to the Academyʼs “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 msel selves vess w wo would u expect. uld ex e pec p t.

THE PREMIER LEADER DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTION IN THE NATION


The Long Gray Line

AT WEST POINT, IT IS OFTEN SAID ... “MUCH OF THE HISTORY WE TEACH WAS MADE BY PEOPLE WE TAUGHT.”


Distinguished Graduates

FRANK BORMAN

ULYSSES S. GRANT

ROBERT E. LEE ʼ29 The Academyʼs 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. Leeʼs surrender to Ulysses S. Grant (USMA 1843), at Appomattox Court House, Va., ended the Civil War. Fort Lee, Va., was named in his honor. ULYSSES S. GRANT ʼ43 Grant distinguished himself during the Civil War at the Battle of Vicksburg in 1863; his victory secured control of the Mississippi River for the Union. President Abe Lincoln later appointed him Commanding General of the Army in March 1864. On April 9, 1865, at Appomattox Court House, Va., Robert E. Lee (USMA 1829) surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia to him, ending the Civil War. Grant later served as the 18th President of the United States from 1869 to 1877. Today, his image graces the $50 bill. GEORGE W. GOETHALS ʼ80 Goethals became an architect and was builder of the Panama Canal, 1904 TO 1914. JOHN J. PERSHING ʼ86 Considered the second most senior officer in Army history, behind only George Washington, Pershing served as commander of the American Expeditionary Force during World War I. The two-million-plus troops of the AEF made a decisive contribution to the defeat of Imperial Germany. Pershingʼs abilities as a leader distinguished him among European commanders, and through repeated successes on the battlefield, promoted American prestige around the world. He served as Army Chief of Staff in 1921, and was named General of the Armies of the United States upon his retirement in 1924.

ALEXANDER HAIG

DOUGLAS MacARTHUR ʼ03 After World War I, MacArthur returned to West Point to serve as the Academyʼs 31st Superintendent from 1919 to 1922. During that time, he was responsible for the revitalization of the Academy. He was later promoted to General of the Army and served as Supreme Allied Commander in the Pacific Theater during World War II. During that time, he received the Medal of Honor for leading defense preparation and operations on the Philippine Islands. He later served as Supreme Allied Commander, Japan, and as commander, United Nations Command in the Far East. He was one of only five officers to be promoted to General of the Army (five stars). GEORGE S. PATTON JR. ʼ09 “Old Blood and Guts,” Patton was one of the most colorful commanders in the Army. During World War II the famed commander of the 2nd Armored Division and later the Third Army displayed courage and daring as prominently as the pair of ivory handled revolvers he wore. Patton accomplished one of the most remarkable feats in military history in December 1944, when he quickly turned the Third Army northward to reinforce the Allied southern flank against the German attack in the Battle of the Bulge. The Generalʼs doctrine of aggressive employment of massive armor forces continue to prove themselves in combat arenas around the world. OMAR N. BRADLEY ʼ15 During his career, Bradley earned a reputation as one of the best infantry commanders in World War II. He commanded the 82nd Airborne and 28th Infantry Divisions before going on to command the 1st Army and the 12th Army Group. After the war he served as Army Chief of Staff from 1948 to 1949 and served as the first Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1949 to 1953. He was the last Army officer to be promoted to General of the Army (five stars), and the Bradley fighting vehicle is named in his honor.

ROBERT KIMBROUGH

ALEXANDER M.

RAMOS ʼ50 One of the Academyʼs international cadets, Ramos served as a Philippine Army officer after graduation. He eventually became the countryʼs military Chief of Staff and later Secretary of National Defense. He also served as President of the Republic of the Philippines from 1992 to 1998. EDWIN E. ALDRIN ʼ51 An astronaut from 1963 to 1972, Aldrin participated in the first manned lunar landing with Michael Collins (USMA ʼ52) and was the second man to walk on the moon. EDWARD WHITE ʼ52 An astronaut from 1962 to 1967, White was the first man to walk in space and was one of the three astronauts killed in the Apollo I disaster in 1967. H. NORMAN SCHWARZKOPF ʼ56 As Commander-in-Chief, United States Central Command from 1988 to 1991, Schwarzkopfʼs command ultimately responded to Iraqʼs invasion of Kuwait with the largest U.S. deployment since the Vietnam War, including portions of the Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps as well as units from dozens of nations around the world. After retiring, Schwartzkopf received the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Director of Athletics Boo CORRIGAN Director of Athletics Notre Dame ʻ90 ®

United States Military Academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. David H. Huntoon Jr., named the person selected to lead West Pointʼs intercollegiate athletic department when he announced the hiring of Boo Corrigan as the Academyʼs director of athletics on Feb. 1, 2011. Corrigan, who was the senior associate athletic director for external affairs at Duke University starting in August 2008, brings a wealth of leadership to his new post. He is a proven administrator with 18 years of experience in all areas of revenue generation, external affairs, staff management and leadership. Corriganʼs chief responsibilities at Duke included the oversight of the Blue Devil corporate partnerships and the Marketing, Promotions, Ticket, Internet Operations, Sports Information and Video Services departments. In only two years at Duke, Corrigan was responsible for the negotiation of multi-media rights to ISP, which increased annual rights more than 40 percent. “First and foremost, I am honored to have the opportunity to work at the United States Military Academy, the West Point leadership and the U.S. Army,” Corrigan said upon his hiring. “It is my privilege to serve those proud Americans that serve our country and to be at the greatest leadership institution in the world. “I want to say specifically to our cadet-athletes that we will provide them the opportunity and the wherewithal to achieve to their highest ability and to provide our coaches with the opportunity to win championships, and build leaders of character. We will strive for our cadets to achieve great success in their academics, military training and athletic endeavors.” Army operates a 25-sport intercollegiate athletic program, highlighted by its nationally recognized football team. Under the direction of head coach Rich Ellerson the Black Knights finished 7-6 this season and closed the season with a win over SMU in the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl. A supervisor of the 2009 NCAA Champion womenʼs tennis and 2010 NCAA Champion menʼs lacrosse programs, Corrigan was a part of three NCAA Championships at Duke in just two seasons. He is currently a member of the NCAA Menʼs Lacrosse Rules committee and the Atlantic Coast Conference Menʼs Lacrosse Committee, while serving on the Executive Budget Committee at Duke. Prior to arriving at Duke in August of 2008, he oversaw Notre Dameʼs corporate relations and marketing as an associate athletic director for five years. During his stint at Notre Dame, Corrigan spearheaded the redesign of its official athletics website and creation of 15-20 hours of original video content weekly. That resulted in a 35

percent increase in page views and unique users. Corrigan also worked directly with ISP Sports, CSTV, and NBC Sports from a sales and marketing standpoint. “We are excited about the selection of Boo Corrigan to be Armyʼs athletic director,” Huntoon said upon Corriganʼs hiring. “He has wide experience e in helping hel h ellpi p ng to to lead le ead d a Division Div D iv vis isio ion on I athletic department and has excelled ex xce cell lled ll ed at at the the highest h gh hi g es e t levels. le eve vels ls.. ls He brings to the Military Academy wealth off ex experience emy em y a we eal a th o xpe eri r en nce e at some of the nationʼs elite athletic programs.” Before joining the staff at Notre Dame, Corrigan spent nearly three years as the associate athletic director for marketing at the United States Naval Academy. He was responsible for turning the marketing department from a deficit to profit in his first year with full budget responsibility for the department. Corrigan also was intimately involved with the re-branding of the Annual Giving Campaign (The Blue and Gold), which led to an increase of 75 percent year over year donations. He previously spent a year as a partner in Corrigan Sports Enterprises, an entrepreneurial sports marketing company, in the Baltimore area -- and also worked two years as an equity partner in mrgoodbucks.com, an e-commerce program that involved creation of affinity business relationships.

Meet the Coaches Jenn Jennifer DeREGO Assistant Coach • First Season Assis Cal Poly P ʻ02 ®

Jennifer DeRego begins her first season with the Army cross country and track & field programs in 2011-12. Head coach Troy Engle announced the hiring of the Black Knightsʼ new assistant distance and cross country coach in August. DeRego comes to the Academy from Heritage High School in Brentwood, Calif., where she was the head cross country coach and assistant track coach, focusing on distance events, for the 2010-11 academic year. DeRego also served as a Health and Physical Education teacher at Heritage. After graduating from California Polytechnic State University in 2002 with a degree in Kinesiology, she returned to her alma mater in 2006 to begin her coaching career as an assistant cross country and track coach. At Cal Poly she was responsible for strength training and aerobic fitness programs, as well as team building and organization. DeRego coached the Mustangs through 2009, earning her Master of Science degree in Kinesiology in the process.

The foundation of the San Jose, Calif., nativeʼs coaching career is a highly accomplished and respected athletic career. DeRego graduated as the Mustangʼs 10,000 kilometer record holder, winning the title at the 2001 Big West Championship. She was also a member of Cal Polyʼs 2000 and 2001 Big West Champion cross country teams. After graduation, DeRegoʼs running career escalated, becoming a two-time Olympic Trials Marathon Qualifier in 2004 and 2008. “Jennifer has established herself as a successful athlete, coach and teacher, making the decision to bring her to West Point an easy one,” said Engle. “Terry Crawford, her college coach who is now the Director of Coaching for U.S.A. Track & Field, was instrumental in our selection of Jennifer, and was one of many people who spoke highly of her. “Coach DeRego impressed us not only on the athletic side of things but with her appreciation for the military and the understanding that the United States Military Academy is a special place. She comes from a military family and will fit in well not only among our staff but with our athletes and alumni as well.”

2011 ARMY CROSS COUNTRY


2011 Menʼs Season Preview Three years removed from their most recent Patriot League cross country title, the Army Black Knights have their sights set on reclaiming their spot at the top. Army returns four of its top-five finishers from last seasonʼs championship, is rejoined by a pair of top performers who missed 2010ʼs postseason due to injury and welcomes a freshman class which rivals the strength of any the Academy has seen before. The Black Knightsʼ senior class is three-pronged attack in Barrett LeHardy, Mike Mitchell and team captain Dan Nix. LeHardy finished in Armyʼs top three in each of the seven races he ran last year, including the teamʼs second-best time in the final four meets. The Roanoke, Va., native was one of two Black Knights to earn AllPatriot League honors a season ago, taking home second-team accolades for finishing 12th of 85 overall at the conference meet. Army graduated its other All-Patriot League performer from 2010, Bryce Livingston. Livingston earned first-team accolades and Armyʼs top finish in six of the seven meets he competed in. Mitchell spent the first M three thre th ree re e meets of the season Armyʼs top two, before in n A sustaining an injury in the sust su sta a fourth four fo u t meet of the season ur which w wh ic ch sidelined him for the remainder of the year. The rema re ma a Ridgefi Ri idg dge e eld Park, N.J., native is healthy and back to compete heal he altt al for fo or the th Black Knights. When Wh en Mitchell went out midseason in 2010, Nix mids mi ds stepped step st epp ep p up, finishing in Armyʼs top to p tthree in each of the final five m meets, including the Black Knightsʼ Knig Kn ig gh top finish at the IC4A Championships. He was the Cham Ch am m only o ly on y Army runner to compete in n all all eight meets last season, steadily sttea e d improving throughout the and shaving nearly 30 t e year th y seconds off his 8K time over s co se on the of seven weeks. the span th s Nix more ““Dan Dan Ni Da N x is rreally e ll ea lly y mo m re of a middle distance guy with his on track coming in the 1,500 w th h wi iss ssuccesses ucce uc ce ess sses e o es n th the e tr tra a meters, but heʼs showing that 8K wonʼt be a problem,” said fourth-year Army head coach Troy Engle. “Last year we used him as a measure against the rest of the team – whatever his best was would typically be where our No. 5 guy would be. This year heʼs a solid No. 1, 2 or 3. Heʼs really stepped up and will bump heads with the top 10 in the Patriot League.” Engle is confident in all three of his senior members, expecting them to finish among the top 15 in the Patriot League. Army returns an experienced junior class in James Hodgen, Dan Jester, Brian Morenus and Kevin Russell, who ran in a combined 27 meets last season and placed in Armyʼs top-five nine times. When asked out of all his returners who really

impressed him coming into the preseason, Engle singled out one of his cows. “Kevin Russell. He outlined things he wanted to get done, he made a commitment at the end of the spring to have a very successful junior campaign and the commitment he made this summer has really set him up for that.” Armyʼs five-man sophomore class is highlighted by the return of Kendall Ward and Ricardo Galindo. Ward, a local product out of nearby Highland Falls, N.Y., competed in six of Armyʼs eight meets last season. Galindo, who finished in Armyʼs top six in three of his first four meets, was sidelined with an injury following the Paul Short Run on Oct. 1 and missed the remainder of the season. Engle welcomes a freshman class of five, highlighted by Georgiaʼs 2010 Gatorade Cross Country Runner of the Year Cody Barger. Barger, an individual cross country state champion in 2010, has Engle eager to start the season. “Barger is as good of an incoming freshman as weʼve ever had. Heʼs really rock solid and will compete in our top group right at the start.” As a whole, Engle believes this seasonʼs team is unlike any he has had at the Academy so far. “I think weʼve turned a corner on the menʼs side. What weʼve struggled with over the past few years is depth on the front end. In the past, weʼve had clumps – a front runner, then a group, then another group, and so on. “This season we have our top seven out front, then five or six right behind, so weʼre really going 12deep or more for the first time in my tenure at West Point. “Our front seven will position themselves to do well in the conference and against Navy.” Armyʼs Star Meet showdown against Navy is its lone dual meet of the season in 2011. The Army-Navy meet is scheduled for Oct. 14 at the West Point Golf Course. The Midshipmen have won the two most recent races against the Black Knights, with Armyʼs last Star Meet win coming in 2008, and most recent victory at West Point in 2005, both by a margin of 27-28. Navy leads the all-time series 44-28-1. The Black Knights open the season on Sept. 2, with the Army Open, followed by Armyʼs annual meeting with Cornell, but this seasonʼs meet features a twist. Second to only Navy in number of times faced, the yearly meeting with the Big Red has been changed from a dual to a triangular as Binghamton will now join the race. The Army-Cornell-Binghamton triangular is set for Sept. 9 in Ithaca, N.Y. Army will compete at the Iona Meet of Champions on Sept. 17, before the Black Knights get their first glimpse of Patriot League opponents at the Paul Short Run in Bethlehem, Pa., on Sept. 30. The Navy meet marks the final regular-season event of the year, as Army will compete for its eighth Patriot League title on Oct. 29 at Lehigh. The NCAA Regional Championships follow on Nov. 12 in Buffalo, N.Y., and the IC4A Championships are set for Nov. 19 at Van Cortlandt Park in New York City.

2011 ARMY CROSS COUNTRY


2011 Womenʼs Season Preview Army womenʼs cross country will look to build on the successes of 2010 in the upcoming 2011 season. Last year saw the Black Knights run to a third-place finish at the Patriot League Championship, two cadet-athletes earn conference recognition and Armyʼs first back-to-back win against rival Navy since 2004-05. With a strong corps of returners combined with a promising freshman class, the Black Knights are poised to take those next successful steps. With seven freshmen listed on the roster, the plebe class is the same size as Armyʼs junior and senior classes combined. Senior Chelsea Prahl was tabbed as team captain for 2011 and will look to lead the young group of Black Knights. Prahl had a quiet cross country season in 2010, running in just three meets, but stepped up in the most recent track season. Armyʼs fourth-year head coach Troy Engle expects the Greenville, Mich., nativeʼs strides on the track to translate into success on the cross country course. “Chelsea came off a breakthrough track season, shattering all of her personal bests and is really starting to live up to her potential as a collegiate athlete. It was a real credit to her, not only as a result of her focus on training, but the commitment to herself to take care of the small things. “Sheʼs proven herself to be not only a great leader as a team captain in terms of traditional cadet leadership, but sheʼs running lights-out in practice.” Marcie Nordt is one of five seniors back on the roster this season along with Prahl. Nordt finished in Armyʼs top two in each of the seven races she ran in last year, including the Black Knightsʼ best time in the final five meets. She was the lone Army runner to earn All-Patriot League honors at the 2010 conference meet, garnering second-team accolades after placing 11th of 87 overall. Shalela Dowdy and Jen West round out the Army firsties. Dowdy was the lone Black Knight to compete in all eight meets last season, while West ran in six, placing in Armyʼs top five in the first three. Mary Prakel and Claire Betterbed represent Armyʼs junior class. Prakel ran in Armyʼs first four meets of 2010, with her top finish coming in the Army Open, where she ran the Black Knightsʼ seventh-best time. Betterbed has not competed since 2009, when she ran in seven of Armyʼs eight meets. The Black Knightsʼ five-person sophomore class is highlighted by the return of Katie Collins and Liz OʼDonnell, 2010ʼs Patriot League Rookie of the Meet. Collins ran in six meets last season, placing in Armyʼs top five in all but one, including a trio of top-three finishes. OʼDonnell earned the conferenceʼs top rookie honor after being the first freshman to cross the line at the league championship, placing 15th of 87 overall. On the year she ran in seven meets, finishing in Armyʼs top six in every meet, including the top time in the dual meet against Cornell. Representing seven different states from California to Florida, Armyʼs freshman class is not only large in number but in talent as well. Lisa Junta from Springfield, Va., Katrina Mecklenburg from San Diego, Calif., and Sara Vagie from Clark, N.J., are expected to make an immediate

impact.

“Similar to last year in Liz OʼDonnell being the Patriot Leagueʼs top rookie, our freshmen this year will be up front right away,” said Engle. “Itʼs incredibly likely that three plebes are in our top six and six in our top 12.” First-year Army assistant coach Jennifer DeRego has been impressed with how well the team has gelled together in the preseason. “Theyʼre eating up the team mentality. There arenʼt cliques or hierarchies in terms of years or where youʼre from. They all boost each other up and that energy converts to synergy. “Weʼre hoping that someone is going to be empowered by that energy and will run for the individual Patriot League title which helps the team as a whole.” Engle expanded on DeRegoʼs point, saying “In cross country what you need is a team to run as a team, but you also need one person to step up and set it up. It could be any of three or four runners on the womenʼs squad that feels empowered by their teammates to say ʻThe best thing I can do for this team is to be the first one to cross the line in the Army-Navy meetʼ, and that will push the entire team. “We have had good depth over the last several years. Looking at last year, Katie Collins was our 12th at Navy and we still won. This year, however, very close ver er,, ou ourr 12 2a are re v e y cl er clos ose os e together – weʼve got 12 right now where past years w wh wher ere er e in tthe he p astt ye as year arss ar weʼve only had five or six. I think our top three are ahead of where our top solo runner was in past years.” The Black Knights will be looking for their third consecutive win against rival Navy on Oct. 14 at the West Point Golf Course. Army last took three straight Star Meet victories in 2003-05. The Midshipmen lead the all-time series 15-10. The Black Knights open the season on Sept. 2, with the Army Open, followed by Armyʼs annual meeting with Cornell, but this seasonʼs meet features a twist. Second to only Navy in number of times faced, the yearly meeting with the Big Red has been changed from a dual to a triangular as Binghamton will now join the race. The Army-Cornell-Binghamton triangular is set for Sept. 9 in Ithaca, N.Y. Army will compete at the Iona Meet of Champions on Sept. 17, before the Black Knights get their first glimpse of Patriot League opponents at the Paul Short Run in Bethlehem, Pa., on Sept. 30. The Navy meet marks the final regular-season event of the year, as Army will compete for its sixth Patriot League title on Oct. 29 at Lehigh. The NCAA Regional Championships follow on Nov. 12 in Buffalo, N.Y., and the ECAC Championships are set for Nov. 19 at Van Cortlandt Park in New York City.

The Patriot League, which was founded on the principles of admitting athletes who are academically representative of their class, is in its second decade of academic and athletic achievement. Participation in athletics at Patriot League institutions is viewed as an important component of a well-rounded education. The Patriot League began as a successful Division I-AA (now called Football Championship Subdivision) football conference in 1986. Full League members include American, Army, Bucknell, Colgate, Holy Cross, Lafayette, Lehigh and Navy. Associate members include Fordham (football) and Georgetown (football). These member institutions are among the oldest and most prestigious in the nation. Alumni from Patriot League colleges and universities have played a leadership role in the shaping of our country. In the classroom, the Patriot League’s full-member institutions, individually and collectively, consistently rank among the top Division I programs in the NCAA Graduation Rates Report. For the eighth-straight year the Patriot League ranked first among all Division I conferences in student-athlete graduation rates according to the NCAA Graduation Rates report. League members have also distinguished themselves on the field of play. The Patriot League sponsors championship competition in 23 sports (11 for men; 12 for women). Championship teams from 14 sports are guaranteed advancement into NCAA post-season competition: baseball, men and women’s basketball, field hockey, football, men’s golf, men and women’s lacrosse, men and women’s soccer, softball, men and women’s tennis and volleyball. In the Patriot League’s history, more than 225 teams have been selected for post-season play in the NCAA, ECAC or National Invitational tournaments. The Patriot League also boasts nearly 100 individual student-athletes who have qualified for NCAA Championships, the pinnacle of collegiate individual competition. In excess of 235 Patriot League student-athletes have earned All-America honors. Along the timeline of Patriot League history about three-quarters of the Patriot League’s 410 Scholar-Athletes of the Year also received All-Patriot League status for their exemplary athletic performance. Additionally, more than 70 of the Scholar-Athletes honored were named Players of the Year or Performers of the Meet in their respective sport. In the Patriot League’s history, 169 Patriot League student-athletes have been recognized as CoSIDA Academic All-Americans, while more than 10,500 more have qualified for the League’s Academic Honor Roll by accumulating a 3.2 grade-point average and earning a varsity letter. Twenty-seven student-athletes have received NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships. Additionally, Patriot League student-athletes have earned four Fulbright Scholarships, a Rhodes Scholarship, a Luce Foundation Scholarship, a Marshall Scholarship, three NACDA/Disney Scholarships, five National Football Foundation Scholarships and three ECAC/ Robbins Scholar-Athlete of the Year awards among their many accomplishments.
