WEST POINT

THE PREMIER LEADER DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTION IN THE NATION


The mission of the U.S. Military Academy is to educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets so that each graduate is a commissioned leader of character committed to the values of Duty, Honor, Country; professional growth throughout a career as an officer in the U.S. Army; and a lifetime of selfless service to the Nation. Founded on March 16, 1802, the Academy celebrated its Bicentennial in 2002. But West Point’s role in America’s history dates to the Revolutionary War, when both sides realized the strategic importance of the commanding plateau on the west bank of the Hudson River. Gen. George Washington considered West Point to be the most strategic position in America. He personally selected Thaddeus Kosciuszko, one of the heroes of Saratoga, to design the fortifications in 1778 after problems arose with French engineers originally placed in charge of the design. In 1779, General Washington transferred his headquarters to West Point. Continental soldiers built forts, batteries and defensive barriers. A 100-ton iron chain was extended across the Hudson to control river traffic. Today, several links from that chain are arranged at Trophy Point as a reminder of West Point’s original fortifications. In 1802 President Thomas Jefferson signed the legislation establishing the U.S. Military Academy to create an institution devoted to the arts and sciences of warfare. This effectively eliminated America’s wartime reliance on foreign engineers and artillerists. West Point became the nation’s first engineering school and served as the model for engineering programs which were eventually established at other colleges. Col. Sylvanus Thayer, the “Father of the Military Academy,” served as Superintendent from 1817 through 1833. He upgraded academic standards, instilled military discipline and emphasized honorable conduct. Early graduates were largely responsible for the construction of the nation’s initial railway lines, bridges, harbors, and roads. Although the curriculum maintains its focus on engineering, in recent decades the program of instruction has markedly changed, providing cadets a selection of more than 40 majors. This tradition of academic and military excellence, guided by a demanding standard of moral and ethical conduct, remains the cornerstone of the West Point experience. It is said at West Point that “much of the history we teach was made by those people we taught.” The Academy has produced famous leaders throughout its illustrious past…Civil War Generals Grant, Sherman, Lee, and Jackson, to name but a few. In World War I, 34 of the 38 corps and division commanders were graduates. World War II would see many graduates reach brigadier general or higher, to include Eisenhower, MacArthur, Bradley and Patton. In more recent conflicts, MacArthur, Ridgway, Westmoreland, Abrams, Schwarzkopf and Abizaid were in command. Academy graduates have also excelled in air and space exploration, and countless others went on from military service to become leaders in medicine, law, business, religion and science. Since its founding, the Military Academy fulfills the same mission as it always has . . . to educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets. It accomplishes this mission by developing cadets in three essential areas: intellectual, physical and military. These developmental paths are balanced and fully integrated into the daily life of each young man and woman at the Academy. Intellectual growth is fostered through an academic curriculum that provides a broad liberal education in the arts and sciences. The electives program builds upon the foundation of the core, allowing cadets to develop even greater competence in selected areas. In addition, the fields-of-study and majors nurture the development of creativity, critical thinking, and self-directed learning, essential characteristics of 21st century officers. The four-year academic experience leads to a bachelor of science degree and a commission as a second lieutenant in the Army. 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 secondyear 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 orienteeringg to such organizations as the cadet radio station, Habitat for Humanity and Big Brothers-Big Sisters. Additionally, the U.S. Corps of Cadets hosts vent each spring. a Special Olympics event Today’s Military Academy is a vastly different institution from the small to being by Congress academy legislated into in 1802. Originally just 1,800 acres, rown to more than the Academy has grown 16,000 acres. The first first graduating class numbered just two men; today’s ore than classes graduate more nnually, 900 new officers annually, n, who both men and women, ership are prepared for leadership roles within the Army. nsion With the expansion of knowledge and the changing needs of the United States Army and est the nation, life at West Point has changed to ful keep pace. Ever mindful he of its rich heritage, the U.S. Military Academyy is developing leaderss for tomorrow, and itss focus remains the national needs of the 21st century.

H. NORMAN SCHWARZKOPF ’56

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. 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).

During World War II, Eisenhower served as Supreme Commander of Allied Forces Europe from 1943 to 1944, during which he led the D-Day invasion of Europe. During that time, he was promoted to General of the Army (five stars). After the war, he served as Army Chief of Staff from 1945 to 1948 and was named President of Columbia University in 1948. He served as the 34th President of the United States from 1953 to 1961 and was one of only five officers to be promoted to General of the Army (five stars).

As Commander-in-Chief, United States Central Command from 1988 to 1991, Schwarzkopf’s command ultimately responded to Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait with the largest U.S. deployment since the Vietnam War, including portions of the Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps as well as units from dozens of nations around the world. After retiring, Schwartzkopf received the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

ULYSSES S. GRANT ’43 Grant distinguished himself during the Civil War at the Battle of Vicksburg in 1863; his victory secured control of the Mississippi River for the Union. President Abe Lincoln later appointed him Commanding General of the Army in March 1864. On April 9, 1865, at Appomattox Court House, Va., Robert E. Lee (USMA 1829) surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia to him, ending the Civil War. Grant later served as the 18th President of the United States from 1869 to 1877. Today, his image graces the $50 bill.

GEORGE W. GOETHALS ’80 Goethals became an architect and was builder of the Panama Canal, 1904 TO 1914.

JOHN J. PERSHING ’86 Considered the second most senior officer in Army history, behind only George Washington, Pershing served as commander of the American Expeditionary Force during World War I. The two-million-plus troops of the AEF made a decisive contribution to the defeat of Imperial Germany. Pershing’s abilities as a leader distinguished him among European commanders, and through repeated successes on the battlefield, promoted American prestige around the world. He served as Army Chief of Staff in 1921, and was named General of the Armies of the United States upon his retirement in 1924.

GEORGE S. PATTON JR. ’09 “Old Blood and Guts,” Patton was one of the most colorful commanders in the Army. During World War II the famed commander of the 2nd Armored Division and later the Third Army displayed courage and daring as prominently as the pair of ivory handled revolvers he wore. Patton accomplished one of the most remarkable feats in military history in December 1944, when he quickly turned the Third Army northward to reinforce the Allied southern flank against the German attack in the Battle of the Bulge. The General’s doctrine of aggressive employment of massive armor forces continue to prove themselves in combat arenas around the world.

OMAR N. BRADLEY ’15 During his career, Bradley earned a reputation as one of the best infantry commanders in World War II. He commanded the 82nd Airborne and 28th Infantry Divisions before going on to command the 1st Army and the 12th Army Group. After the war he served as Army Chief of Staff from 1948 to 1949 and served as the first Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1949 to 1953. He was the last Army officer to be promoted to General of the Army (five stars), and the Bradley fighting vehicle is named in his honor.

ALEXANDER M. HAIG JR. ’47 Haig served as Chief of Staff to President Richard Nixon from 1973 to 1974; Supreme Allied Commander in Europe 1974 to 1979; President of United Technologies Corporation 1980 to 1981 and Secretary of State during the Reagan administration from 1981 to 1982.

FRANK BORMAN ’50 An astronaut from 1962 to 1970, Borman commanded the first circumlunar flight of the earth. He later served as President of Eastern Airlines.

FIDEL V. RAMOS ’50 One of the Academy’s international cadets, Ramos served as a Philippine Army officer after graduation. He eventually became the country’s military Chief of Staff and later Secretary of National Defense. He also served as President of the Republic of the Philippines from 1992 to 1998.

EDWIN E. ALDRIN ’51 An astronaut from 1963 to 1972, Aldrin participated in the first manned lunar landing with Michael Collins (USMA ’52) and was the second man to walk on the moon.

EDWARD WHITE ’52 An astronaut from 1962 to 1967, White was the first man to walk in space and was one of the three astronauts killed in the Apollo I disaster in 1967.

PETER M. DAWKINS ’59 Dawkins was Cadet Brigade Commander (First Captain of the U.S. Corps of Cadets) as a senior and became the third Heisman Trophy winner in Army football history. He later served as chairman and CEO of Primerica.

JAMES V. KIMSEY ’62 Kimsey was the founding chairman of America Online, and was named chairman emeritus in 1996. He founded the Kimsey Foundation in 1996.

MICHAEL W. KRZYZEWSKI ’69 Krzyzewski served as head basketball coach at West Point from 1974 to 1979 before assuming similar duties at Duke University. Krzyzewski has led the Blue Devils to three national championships and was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in October 2001. He coached the U.S. at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

RAYMOND T. ODIERNO ‘76 Odierno commanded the 4th Infantry Division during the fall of 2003 which, along with Special Forces units, captured Saddam Hussein in December of that year. Odierno helped plan and coordinate the raid that netted Iraq’s fallen dictator.

ROBERT S. KIMBROUGH ’89 Kimbrough was named one of 11 new astronaut candidates by NASA in May 2004. Kimbrough ranks among Army Baseball’s career leaders in saves. A veteran of Desert Storm, he currently works for NASA in Houston as a flight simulation engineer and participated in a space shuttle mission last fall.

Our achievement would not be possible without the Long Gray Line that has sacrificed for duty, for honor, for country.” - PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA “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 RONALD REAGAN

KIMSEY ATHLETIC CENTER

Nestled among several of West Point’s showcase athletic facilities is the 120,000-square-foot, four-story Kimsey Athletic Center. Adjacent to Kimsey Athletic Center is a turf practice field, allowing for more spacious area for Army’s teams to utilize. Kimsey Athletic Center is also the home of the Blaik Gallery and Kenna Hall of Army Sports, a thorough depiction of West Point’s rich athletics heritage.


FOLEY ATHLETIC CENTER

The latest jewel in Army’s treasure trove of athletic facilities, Foley Athletic Center opened its doors three years ago, serving as the “winter home” of the Black Knights. The 77,000-square-foot structure provides Army’s lacrosse team, among others, with a state-of-the-art indoor practice facility, a place where the team can train in a climate-controlled environment during the winter months and inclement weather days throughout the year. The facility contains a full 100yard playing field, along with full 10-yard end zones on both ends. Additionally, a five-yard buffer encircles the field. In all, the FieldTurf playing surface covers 130 yards in length. In addition, a 50-yard-by-10-yard speed and agility room is housed in the sprawling training center. The project was made possible through the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. William Foley, who pledged a gift of $15 million towards the continuation of the “Margin of Excellence” facility upgrade project. The largest single donation in service academy history, the gift by the Foley family funded the design and construction of the facility that bears its name. The Foley Athletic Center represents Phase II of the “Margin of Excellence” facility upgrade which began in 2001.

ARMY’S FUTURE HOME

Pictured above are renderings of Army lacrosse’s new facility, currently in the fund raising stages of development.


ATHLETIC TRAINING

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 1,202-square-foot cardiovascular room containing more than 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 service countless Black Knight athletes simultaneously so they are able to realize their full potential on the “fields of friendly strife.”


STRENGTH & CONDITIONING

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.


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

WHERE ARE THEY NOW? Since its founding two centuries ago, the U.S. Military Academy has accomplished its mission by developing cadets in four critical areas: intellectual, physical, military, and moral-ethical - a four-year process called the “West Point Experience.” It remains committed to the task of producing commissioned leaders of character for America’s Army. Today, the Academy graduates more than 900 new officers annually, which represents approximately 25 percent of the new lieutenants required by the Army each year. Gen. Douglas MacArthur once said, “Upon the fields of friendly strife are sown the seeds that upon other fields, on other days, will bear the fruits of victory.” That statement is a testament to the high regard in which the Academy holds athletics and the role of a vibrant and competitive intercollegiate program. Great leaders such as Grant and Lee, Pershing and MacArthur, Eisenhower and Patton, Westmoreland and Schwarzkopf are among the more than 50,000 graduates of the U.S. Military Academy. Countless others have served society in the fields of medicine, law, business, politics, and science following their careers in uniform. Army’s great lacrosse tradition has produced its share of leaders both militarily and privately. Today’s Army lacrosse player is well-versed in “Duty, Honor, Country,” and is provided with all the tools to be leaders of character in the Army and in the business world.

WEST POINT ACADEMIC GOALS Graduates anticipate and respond effectively to the uncertainties of a changing technological, social, political and economic world. Upon achieving this overarching goal, graduates will be able to: - think and act creatively - recognize moral issues and apply ethical considerations in decision-making. - listen, read, speak, and write effectively - demonstrate the capability and desire to pursue progressive and continual intellectual development, and demonstrate proficiency in six domains of knowledge: Engineering and Technology Information Technology

Math and Science History

Culture Human Behavior

Long recognized as one of the premier academic institutions in the United States, the U.S. Military Academy provides a challenging curriculum that culminates in a bachelor of science degree upon graduation. More than 25 fields of study and 19 optional academic majors are available to cadets as West Point strives to educate and train the Corps of Cadets so that each graduate shall have the attributes essential to professional growth as an officer in the regular Army. The USMA curriculum is also geared toward providing West Point graduates with an intellectual foundation for increasing responsibility (as they ascend the ranks) through a balanced undergraduate education. The Academy’s highly competitive academic environment, coupled with its broad-based academic curriculum, has helped West Point rank fourth nationally in the number of both Rhodes Scholars and Hertz Scholars that it has produced. The West Point curriculum is divided into three portions - core courses, an engineering sequence and a field of study. Cadets are required to take 26 core courses plus five additional classes in one of seven engineering sequences (mechanical, electrical, civil, nuclear, systems, computer or environmental). Beginning with the first semester of the junior year, cadets begin to take electives for their chosen field of study. Fields of study require completion of nine additional courses, bringing to 40 the number of classes a cadet must pass in order to receive a degree. The selection of an optional major involves anywhere from one to four - usually three - additional courses above and beyond the nine field of study electives. This will allow the Cadet to expand his or her realm of study within a chosen discipline. Physical education and military science courses round out the challenging curriculum. Cadets are required to incorporate classes from both disciplines into each semester’s class schedule, creating a standard six-course load for each academic term.

ARMY BLACK KNIGHTS UNITED STATES MILITARY ACADEMY PREP SCHOOL ABOUT USMAPS

USMAPS is now located just outside West Point’s Washington Gate. The academic program at West Point Prep is a dynamic program, closely coordinated with the West Point curriculum. It is designed to tailor instruction to best meet the needs of the individual cadet candidate. One of the central goals of the academic program is to fully challenge all candidates while recognizing the diversity in their educational backgrounds. The school’s approach is to enhance the skills candidates already possess while providing a solid basis for improvement in needed areas. The academic program focuses on Mathematics and English. These broad areas provide the fundamental basis for academic success at West Point. Cadet candidates also receive instruction in study skills and time management through the Student Success Course. Rigorous concentration on these skills improves a student’s ability to grasp and retain information as well as to think critically and communicate clearly. All candidates are expected to work diligently to surpass course standards in all areas. Those candidates who do not perform to the course standards are counseled, given specific remedial actions to improve performance, and, in most cases, given an opportunity to remedy the material. Students who repeatedly fail to attain course standards may be disenrolled by the Commandant. Academic weeks are organized with “A” days and “B” days running alternately. This allows flexibility in scheduling required courses and for efficiency in the use of instructors and facilities. The academic year consists of four quarters, of 40 classroom days

duration each. Grading is accomplished against standard objectives and criteria. Test results are not curved. All students who attain the same level of performance against the standard receive the same grade. USMAPS employs a system of “tracking” to challenge fully all cadet candidates. Based upon their performance on a series of initial diagnostic tests and, more importantly, on their performance halfway through the first quarter of classroom work, cadet candidates are placed into specialized English and mathematics tracks. This flexible academic approach allows candidates to improve in weak areas while continuing to enhance their strong areas. Tracks range in difficulty from Fundamental to Advanced Placement. During the academic year candidates can move between tracks, and upward movement is encouraged whenever possible. The Student Success Course is designed to give candidates the tools that will help them throughout their academic and military careers. The tools include: effective reading, notebook organization, note-taking (including mapping and clustering), goal-setting, time management, and memory devices. To reduce academic stress, class time is devoted to stress management and overcoming “test phobia.” Students are expected to apply the techniques to their current classes. Successful people exhibit more than just strong aptitude; they also exhibit a positive attitude, take responsibility for their actions, progress steadily towards goals, and continually re-evaluate their methods. Much of the Student Success Course is devoted to the study of successful behavior and students are encouraged to practice these

The purpose of the United States Military Academy Preparatory School is to prepare selected candidates for admission to West Point; providing focused academic, military and physical instruction in a moral-ethical military school environment in order to prepare and motivate candidates for success at the United States Military Academy. The U.S. Military Academy Preparatory School, known as USMAPS, the Prep School, or West Point Prep, was formally established in 1946, but the history of prepping of soldiers for West Point has been done since Congress enacted legislation in 1916 authorizing appointments for soldiers to West Point. The school exists today as an “avenue of opportunity” to a carefully selected group of soldiers and civilians by providing them the academic, leadership and physical skills that will prepare them for success as cadets at the United States Military Academy. Located just a stone’s throw away from one of West Point’s three gates, West Point Prep prepares cadet candidates for West Point with a foundation that will last them beyond admission to the Academy and well into the future as leaders of character for the nation. West Point Prep is primarily an academic institution that accepts students and soldiers from diverse backgrounds and challenges them to meet and exceed West Point’s rigorous admission standards. As a military school with a career focus, West Point Prep also develops the foundation of professional and physical attributes needed for growth as an officer in the U.S. Army. methods as they develop their leadership style. The goal of the class is to offer lifelong benefits to cadet candidates. Cadet candidates are expected to obtain a “C” or better in each academic course for each quarter. To graduate, each candidate must obtain a “C” or better for each course in each quarter. In addition, they are expected to meet the established physical and military standards. USMAPS underwent a drastic change at the start of the 2011-12 academic year, moving its campus from Fort Monmouth, N.J., to West Point’s sprawling terrain. Featuring brand new buildings and stateof-the-art facilities, USMAPS is located just outside West Point’s Washington Gate.

Joe Alberici enters his seventh season at the helm of the Army lacrosse program. Following in the footsteps of some of the biggest names in the history of the sport, Alberici roams the same sideline where Hall of Fame legends such as Jack Emmer, Ace Adams, Dick Edell and F. Morris Touchstone, once tread. A former assistant to Emmer, Alberici returned to the banks of the Hudson River after a nine-year stint as an assistant coach at Duke where he helped the Blue Devils tighten their grip as one of the nation’s premier lacrosse programs. Alberici became the 10th head coach in Army’s storied 90-year history in 2006, and was tasked to fill the big shoes left by his mentor, Emmer, who retired as college lacrosse’s all-time winningest coach in 2005. Alberici led Army to its first-ever Patriot League tournament title in 2010, defeating Navy, 11-8, in the championship contest. The Black Knights, who compiled a 6-0 conference record during the regular season for the first time that spring, went on to upset No. 2-ranked Syracuse in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Alberici helped mold Garrett Thul into the national Rookie of the Year in 2010 as the attackman set plebe records in goals and points. Last spring, Alberici recorded his 50th victory at Army and mentored one of the most prolific feeders in the program’s storied history. Jeremy Boltus ‘11 finished second on Army’s all-time points (214) and assists (124) lists. The team captain became the second player in Army history to be one of five national finalists for the Tewaaraton Award, presented annually to the top

player in college lacrosse, and the first Black Knight since 2005 to be named first team All-America. Boltus went on to enjoy a breakout campaign with the Hamilton Nationals of Major League Lacrosse. He led all rookies in scoring and later nabbed MLL Rookie of the Year accolades. With the tandem of Thul and Boltus firing on all cylinders, Alberici’s sixth season at the helm saw the Black Knights defeat rival Navy at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium for the first time since 1997. The 14-9 comeback victory marked a third straight win over the Mids and fourth victory for the Class of 2011 - the only class in Army history to beat Navy four times. Army, nationally ranked at the time, also clinched a Patriot League Tournament berth that afternoon and effectively eliminated Navy from the four-team playoff for the first time in conference history. Army went on to finish the season with a 9-6 overall mark and ranked as high as No. 7 in the country. The Black Knights totaled five All-America certificates, three MLL draftees and produced a second team Academic All-America honoree. Alberici was named the 2008 Patriot League Coach of the Year after leading Army to a 9-6 record, including a 5-1 conference mark which was good enough to clinch the Patriot League regular season title and top seed for the postseason tournament, hosted at Michie Stadium. Five Black Knights garnered All-Patriot League honors, including senior Adam Fullerton ‘08, who won his secondstraight conference Goalkeeper of the Year award on his way to third-team All-America honors. Ranked as high as No. 8 during the season, Army finished the season No. 19 in the final USILA National Coaches Poll on the heels of a scoring defense that only allowed 7.13 goals per game, to rank sixth nationally. In 2007, Alberici guided the Black Knights through a roller coaster season, highlighted by a 6-1 start and an upset of No. 2 Syracuse in the Carrier Dome that marked the first time the Orange had ever lost at home in February. Ranked as high as No. 8 in the national polls during the campaign, the Black Knights would go on to qualify for their third-straight Patriot League Tournament to finish the season. His stalwart defense allowed just four opponents to score over 10 goals en route to a 7.80 goals against average that ranked 10th in the country. Alberici also watched four of his players garner all-conference honors. In his first season as head coach, Alberici led the Black Knights to their

“There is no better institution in the country to get an education, to learn about leadership, or to learn about yourself than West Point. It is the kind of place that, if you choose to come here, you’ll be different when you leave. Certainly, there will be challenges, but you will have the strength of your teammates, your coaches and all those around you for support. If you are willing to meet those challenges head-on, you’ll be a better person for it. I’m not sure there is a nobler thing than to serve your country. It says a lot about who you are.” - ARMY HEAD COACH JOE ALBERICI

second-straight appearance in the Patriot League Tournament Championship game. Two of his players - attackman John Walker ‘06 and defenseman Matt Luyster ‘06 - capped their Army careers with Honorable Mention All-America honors while leading the squad to its ninth-straight season with at least eight victories against one of the toughest schedules in the country. Alberici’s tenure at Duke coincided with the Blue Devils’ rise to national prominence, which culminated in their magical run to the Division I title contest in 2005, a game in which they fell 9-8 to top-ranked Johns Hopkins. Ranked second in the nation behind the Blue Jays for much of the spring, Duke forged a remarkable 17-3 ledger and established an NCAA record for victories in a single season. Two of Duke’s losses were one-goal defeats at the hands of Johns Hopkins, including an 11-10 double-overtime loss at JHU’s Homewood Field in early April. e Alberici’s duties at Duke included recruiting director, assisting with the e daily administration of the program, serving as the Blue Devils’ defensive e coordinator and coaching the team’s goalkeepers. After serving as offensive ht coordinator and working with Duke’s man-up offense during his first eight nyears, he assumed the roles of defensive coordinator and coach of the mand down defense during his final season. He was promoted to associate head coach in 1999.

In his present role as the face of Army’s storied program, Alberici has assumed control of a club that remains intertwined with the rich history of collegiate lacrosse. In 94 seasons, the Black Knights have amassed 725 victories, trailing only Johns Hopkins, Syracuse and Navy in all-time wins at the Division I level. Army has produced eight national champions, while 12 men associated with the program (eight players and four coaches) have been enshrined in the National Lacrosse Foundation Hall of Fame. Alberici served a term as an assistant coach for the U.S. National Lacrosse Team at the 2010 World Lacrosse Championships in Manchester, England, helping the Americans to the gold medal. In 2007, he was also appointed to the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Board of Directors, the sport’s national governing body. Alberici and his wife, P Petra, etra, son, Maximus, and

reside at West Point with their daughter, Isabella.

e During Alberici’s nine years on head coach Mike Pressler’s staff, the Blue e Devils forged a sparkling 96-47 (.671) record, made seven appearances in the n NCAA Tournament - including a run of six-straight postseason trips between 1997 and 2002 - and captured a pair of Atlantic Coast Conference titless n (2001 and 2002). The Blue Devils reached the Final Four for the first time in e 1997, Alberici’s initial year in Durham, before embarking on their remarkable n postseason run in 2005. Under Alberici’s watchful eye, Duke ranked second in the nation in scoring defense, surrendering just 6.91 goals per game. h, Alberici spent the 1995 and 1996 seasons at West Point as an assistant coach, and helped the Black Knights to a 10-5 showing and an NCAA appearance e er in 1996. Army won its final five games that season, including victories over Hofstra, Navy and Rutgers, to earn the Academy’s 12th postseason berth. A 1991 graduate of Alfred University, Alberici was a two-time lacrosse All-lAmerican in 1990 and 1991 and also garnered Academic All-America a accolades as a senior. A four-year starter at attack, he set six school scoring g records and led the Saxons to winning seasons in 1989, 1990 and 1991. A three-time team captain, Alberici led the entire nation, including all three divisions, in assists as a junior, garnering 78 helpers in 17 contests for a 4.6 assist per-game average. In 2001, Alberici was inducted into Alfred’s Hall of Fame. Following graduation, Alberici remained at his alma mater for two years in the e role of graduate assistant coach, earning his master’s degree in education in n 1993. He accepted his first head coaching assignment soon thereafter when n he was named to the top post at SUNY Oneonta. In 1994, the Dragons forged an 8-6 record and established a single-season n school record for victories, earning Alberici Empire Lacrosse League Coach of the Year laurels. It was on the heels of that spectacular season that Alberici ci made the move to West Point. A native of Auburn, N.Y., Alberici was inducted into the Auburn High School ol Hall of Fame in 2008, joining his older brother, John and father, Gino, ass enshrinees.

ARMY BLACK KNIGHTS ASSISTANT COACHING STAFF ANTHONY “MAC” DIANGE 23RD SEASON AT ARMY CORTLAND STATE, 1977

The longest tenured assistant coach at the Academy, Anthony “Mac” Diange is in his 23rd season with the Army lacrosse program and has been an integral part of its success. The veteran assistant, who was named the 2010 Assistant Coach of the Year by the Intercollegiate Men’s Lacrosse Coaches Association this past fall, will continue to run Army’s offense. Diange is also a top-notch recruiter with deep roots on Long Island and in the Hudson Valley. The Long Island native teamed with legendary coach Jack Emmer to bring stability and continuity to the Black Knights’ sideline when he joined the West Point staff in 1990 and continued his tenure at the Academy with the arrival of Joe Alberici as head coach prior to the start of the 2006 season. During his tenure at the Academy, Diange has tutored the two most prolific scorers in Army lacrosse history. Tim Pearson totaled 238 points from 199802 to eclipse the previous scoring record by 34. The three-time All-American also sits atop the career assist list with 142. Diange also guided John Walker during his standout career that culminated with 209 points (125 goals, 84 assists) and his second All-America honor in 2006. One of five finalists for the Tewaaraton Trophy - handed out annually to college lacrosse’s top player - during his senior campaign, Walker still ranks third in assists and fourth in goals. Over the last four seasons, Diange helped develop one of the most prolific feeders in Army history -- Jeremy Boltus ’11. Boltus graduated from West Point ranked second all-time in points and assists and was also a Tewaaraton Trophy finalist. Additionally, “Mac”, as he is widely known in lacrosse circles, has been a part of all 11 Patriot League titles the Academy has either won or shared, and has watched three of his attackmen and two midfielders earn the league’s Offensive Player of the Year award. Five of his other offensive threats started their careers off by earning Patriot League Rookie of the Year accolades as well. A total of 17 Army players have accorded All-America accolades during Diange’s term at West Point, including at least one in 10 of the last 12 years. Diange arrived at West Point in 1990 following a nine-year stint on the Division III level as head lacrosse coach at SUNY Geneseo. While at the helm of the Blue Knights, Diange was named the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) Coach of the Year twice, in 1985 and again in 1989. He played a large role in popularizing the game of lacrosse in Western New York through the success of the program, compiling a 51-49 record during his tenure. In only his second season, he guided the squad to an 8-3 mark and the school’s first SUNYAC Championship. Diange is a 1977 graduate of SUNY Cortland, widely considered the cradle of college lacrosse coaching, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in physical education. A standout midfielder, he was a member of the Red Dragons’ 1975 Division II National Championship squad. He also spent one year as an assistant coach at Albany while earning a master’s degree in education. A native of Massapequa Park, N.Y., Diange starred in football and lacrosse at Farmingdale High School and helped the gridders to the 1971 New York State Championship. Diange and his wife, Janice, reside in Cornwall. They have three children: Kelly-Lynn, Allison and Joe.

KYLE GEORGALAS 1ST SEASON AT ARMY CORNELL, 2005

Kyle Georgalas, a former first team All-Ivy League, honorable mention AllAmerica selection and later five-year assistant coach at Cornell, joined Army’s lacrosse staff as an assistant coach in August 2011. Georgalas spent five years as an assistant coach at his alma mater Cornell. During his nine years with the Big Red as both a player and assistant coach, Cornell posted a 102-37 record, won outright or shared eight Ivy League titles and made three Final Four appearances. During his five years on the sidelines, he helped Cornell post at least 11 wins each season, including a 15-1 showing in 2007. Georgalas tackled a bevy of responsibilities during his time as an assistant coach, broadening his skills in all areas. On the field, Georgalas was in charge of face-offs and substitutions, while assisting in all facets of the defensive unit. He also served as the staff’s recruiting coordinator. In 2009, Georgalas helped lead Cornell to a 13-4 record and its first trip to the national championship game since the 1988 season. The Big Red also posted a mark of 5-1 in the Ivy League, winning a share of its seventh straight Ivy League title, the longest stretch since Cornell won 10 straight championships between 1974 and 1983. The Big Red added another title in Georgalas’ final season in 2010. He coached a face-off unit that ranked 10th in the country with a .552 winning percentage in 2009. The unit was carried by John Glynn ‘09, who finished the year ranked eighth in the country with a .574 winning percentage. In 2008, Georgalas helped the Big Red to an 11-4 record and its sixth straight Ivy League title with a mark of 5-1 in the conference. Georgalas helped Cornell become one of the most dominating face-off teams in the country that year, finishing the season ranked third in the nation with a .631 win percentage. Under his tutelage, Cornell utilized two players in the “x” and they finished the year ranked first and second in the Ivy League, respectively. Glynn’s mark of .633 was good enough for third in the nation. In his second season, Georgalas helped Cornell to one of the greatest campaigns in recent years as the Big Red capped an undefeated regular season (13-0) with the program’s first trip to the national semifinals since 1988. The team finished the year with a 15-1 record, one victory shy of the school record and finished its Ivy League schedule with a perfect 6-0 mark. In his first season on the sidelines in 2006, Georgalas helped the Big Red as it went 5-1 in the conference, winning a share of its fourth straight Ivy League title. The Big Red also won 11 games in the regular season for the first time since the 1987 team went into the NCAA tournament with an undefeated record of 11-0. As a player, Georgalas headed up the Big Red defense in 2005 and served as a team captain during his final two seasons. During his senior campaign, Cornell held its opponents to fewer than eight goals per game, largely due to the fact the Georgalas held opposing attackers in check throughout the year. The team’s most respected leader, Georgalas collected 37 ground balls as a senior, leading the Big Red’s close defense unit in that department. He was selected to compete for the North team in the 64th annual North-South Classic, and was drafted by the New Jersey Pride in the fifth round of the 2005 Major League Lacrosse collegiate draft. During his senior season, Georgalas helped Cornell to an 11-3 overall record, completing its first perfect 6-0 Ivy League season and its first outright Ivy title since 1987. The 2005 squad then advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals for the second-straight season where they fell to national runner-up Duke, 11-8.

TED GEORGALAS 3RD SEASON AT ARMY SPRINGFIELD, 1973

Ted Georgalas embarks upon his third season as a volunteer assistant coach with the Army lacrosse program. Georgalas was named one of the original six head coaches at the inception of Major League Lacrosse (MLL) in 2001. Voted the 2003 MLL Coach of the Year, he led the New Jersey Pride for its first four seasons of existence, leading the squad to a pair of playoff appearances in 2002 and 2003. He was inducted into the Hudson Valley Chapter of the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame’s second class in 1995, 10 years before Army coaching legend Jack Emmer was bestowed the same honor in 2005. Georgalas is credited with founding the Mahopac (N.Y.) high school lacrosse program in 1983, which has since become one of the top programs in the state. After leading the Indians to the 1983 New York State Championship in his first season with the squad, he spent the next 18 years on the Mahopac sidelines, while also coaching football and basketball. Additionally a physical education teacher, he was named the New York State Section 1 Man of the Year after retiring from his teaching position in 2007. He most recently served as the head junior varsity coach at Somers (N.Y.) High School while serving as a substitute teacher in the district. He also previously was an assistant lacrosse coach at Pace University. A native of nearby lacrosse hotbed Yorktown Heights, N.Y., he graduated from Springfield College in 1973 and was a member of the school’s first varsity lacrosse team. The defenseman capped his collegiate career with third-team All-America honors as a senior after garnering Honorable Mention All-America plaudits as a junior. A three-time team captain, he also won a trio of All-New England honors and participated in the North-South Senior All-Star Game in 1973.

ATHLETIC INTERN WEST POINT, 2011

Second Lieutenant Jeremy Boltus returns to the Army sidelines as the program’s athletic intern for the 2012 season. One of the most decorated players in Army lacrosse history, Boltus ranks second on the Black Knights’ all-time points (214) and assists (124) lists. The first Army player since 2005 to garner USILA First Team All-America honors, Boltus was one of five national finalists for the prestigious Tewaaraton Award, presented annually to the top player in college lacrosse. He also became the first lacrosse player since 1984 to win the Army Athletic Association Award upon graduation. While continuing to complete his military obligations, Boltus’ success on the playing field did not stop after graduation. He went on to enjoy a standout season with the Hamilton Nationals of Major League Lacrosse and was later named the MLL Rookie of the Year. A four-time All-Patriot League performer and 2011 Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year, Boltus branched field artillery and reports to his Officer Basic Course this spring.

ARMY BLACK KNIGHTS 2012 SEASON OUTLOOK It’s a different year and Army will be a different team in 2012. The Black Knights suffered huge blows to graduation last May, but return a plethora of talented, eager players clamoring to fill those voids and continue a storied tradition of winning at West Point. In addition to a vital group of role players, the Black Knights bid farewell to attackman Jeremy Boltus, defenseman Bill Henderson and goalkeeper Tom Palesky after the trio were commissioned as second lieutenants following graduation. All three were All-Americans and won the highest Patriot League honor at their respective position in 2011. “We have a good understanding of what we’ve lost in this program; that’s no secret,” said head coach Joe Alberici, who enters his seventh season this spring. “I won’t turn a blind eye to that. We’ve lost some All-Americans, but we also lost a lot of really quality guys that contributed a great deal to Army lacrosse in their four years here. There were some huge losses from 2011’s team, but in the same regard, I’m optimistic about the 2012 team. “We have a great combination of experienced players who will be playing larger roles than in the past and newcomers,” he continued. “I’m confident those experienced players can step up to the job and the influx of a great freshmen class will add a lot to this team.” Leadership has been the backbone of Army’s program since the beginning of time. This season, senior tri-captains Tim Henderson, Devin Lynch and Brian LoRusso will be engineering that effort. “The senior leadership has been outstanding,” Alberici noted. “More than anything, that gives me cause for great optimism with this team.” While aside from preseason All-America selections Henderson and junior attackman Garrett Thul, the Black Knights may not have those well-known, marquee players as they did a year ago, Alberici said the name of the game will be diversity.

“Diversified - that’s the best way to put it,” Alberici said. “Not that we weren’t last year, but we played more to our strengths. I think we may be able to put more quality players on the field. Maybe there’s not a first team All-American like Jeremy (Boltus), but we might be able to get a greater number of quality players on the field.” ATTACK Army will rely heavily on the services of Thul at attack for the third year in a row. One question that remains is who is going to feed the power lefty the ball. Alberici said the preseason third team AllAmerica selection continues to expand his game every day. “Garrett possesses great size and uncanny strength,” Alberici said. “He’s always adding a piece to his game with the goal of becoming a more well-rounded attackman. He has continued to work on his feeding game, along with dodging right handed. We’re counting on him to have a monster junior year.” With the graduation of Boltus, listed second on Army’s all-time assists list, the contributions of the Black Knights remaining attackmen to step up will be critical for the team’s success in 2012. Chief among those candidates is senior Conor Hayes, who finished fourth on the team in scoring (14 points, 12 goals, two assists) last spring. Injuries hampered Hayes throughout a good portion of his career, but he will be counted on mightily in his final season on the banks of the Hudson. Senior John Adair, sporting plenty of experience on Army’s man-up unit, and junior James MacGibbon boast the most field time of the returning attackmen aside from Thul. MacGibbon did not play last spring as he recovered from knee surgery. Although not completely new to the position, making the move from midfield to attack this season is junior Andy Boyd. The St. Louis, Mo., native played in all 15 games a year ago and finished with eight goals.

MIDFIELD As in the past, a huge key to Army’s success will be placed upon the midfield. The Black Knights welcome a strong, athletic crop of midfielders back, including tri-captain and three-year starter Devin Lynch, juniors Pat Brennan and Alex Van Krevel, along with sophomore Tyler Kamide. Army’s midfield will also undoubtedly benefit from the contributions of highly touted recruit John Glesener. The rookie out of Camillus, N.Y., who attended USMAPS for the 2010-11 season, was named the top post-graduate recruit by Inside Lacrosse last August. “John has an opportunity to be one of the great all-time players in Army lacrosse history,” Alberici said. “He is a relentless worker and possesses all of the physical skills – speed, size and shooting ability – that you look for. We’re going to count on him making a seamless transition to the college game.” Lynch has started every game over the last two years and was the Black Knights’ third leading scorer (22 points, 14 goals, eight assists) a year ago. His three gamewinning goals last season tied for the most in the Patriot League, fitting for the player responsible for Army’s game-winning score Garrett Thul in a monumental 9-8 (2OT) upset of Syracuse

two years ago in the NCAA Tournament. Brennan and Van Krevel appeared in 15 and 12 games, respectively, last season. Brennan started 10 games and totaled 11 points on five goals and six assists. Van Krevel added four goals, including his first career hat trick in a 12-6 win at VMI early in the season. After a promising start to the year, Kamide spent much of the latter portion of the season hampered with an injury. The central New York native has since returned to form and will be counted on to pick up where he left off early in 2011. Kamide played in nine games and scored three of his four goals in the Black Knights’ first four games. DEFENSIVE MIDFIELD/FACEOFF Transition played a significant role in Army’s success last year with a majority of those key players returning. Seniors Derek Sipperly, Matt Hurley and tri-captains Brian LoRusso and Tim Henderson will be the names involved in driving the transition game. Sipperly is expected to resume his role as the Black Knights’ primary faceoff specialist. He took 278 of Army’s 327 faceoffs as a junior, while also contributing his first career points. Sipperly posted a pair of goals and five assists, and finished third on the team with 44 ground balls. Hurley and Henderson finished the season with a combined 12 points out of the Black Knights’ defensive midfield, adding a dynamic element to Army’s point production in 2011. LoRusso drew his only action last season in the Black Knights’ final game, taking a pair of faceoffs against nationally ranked Johns Hopkins at Michie Stadium. LoRusso spent much of the year rehabilitating an injury, but is expected to be at full-strength for his final season at West Point. Junior Matt Mezer and sophomore Nick Isnardi both took faceoffs last season and will once again be strong understudies for Sipperly in the faceoff “x.” LONG STICK MIDFIELD Already the recipient of several preseason accolades, including All-America and Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year honors, expectations for Henderson are extremely high. A physically imposing long pole drafted by the Rochester Rattlers as the 35th overall pick, follows in his older brother, Bill (West Point ’11), in serving as a team captain. “Timmy has outstanding offensive skills for a defensive midfielder,” Alberici noted. “He has worked hard on his ground ball play, coming off the wings on faceoffs, and has improved his team defense. Much of our success will be dependent on his ability to own the defensive end of the field.” One of the most experienced players on the team, senior Tom Dalton is a more than capable player with strong ground ball skills. A Hudson Valley product, Dalton played in all but one game last season and finished with 13 ground balls. Sophomore Kevin Epp and rookie Sean Jollota round out Army’s long stick middies and will work for playing time as the season progresses. DEFENSE Fresh off his finest season in the Black, Gold and Gray, senior Larry LoRusso returns as the anchor of the staunch defense that has served as the cornerstone of Army lacrosse in recent memory.

Tim Henderson

second team All-Patriot League defenseman in 2011, LoRusso started all 15 games, came up with his second career assist and totaled 18 ground balls and 11 caused turnovers. Juniors Brendan Buckley and Drew Kearns, along with sophomore Pat Hart, all have the experience and the capability to complement LoRusso on Army’s close defense. Buckley started 11 games last season and came up with 15 ground balls. Although not regular starters, Kearns and Hart saw plenty of field time and will be shouldered with more significant roles this season. GOALKEEPERS One of the most profound question marks heading into the 2012 slate surrounds Army’s goalkeeper situation. The Black Knights have relied on the services of All-American goalies Adam Fullerton ’08 and Tom Palesky ’11 for the last seven years and will be putting a fresh face between the pipes for the first time in Alberici’s tenure this season. The leading candidate to fill the starting role from the outset will be senior Zach Palmieri. The Syracuse, N.Y., native has played in nine career games with the longest span in goal being 12 minutes as a junior. “Zach had a great fall for us and I’m expecting him to step up as our starter,” Alberici said. “He is an excellent communicator and has been working hard on the outlet game. We need him to be effective in getting our transition going. He’s learned and played behind some great goalies, and I’m excited for him to get his chance.” Junior Evan Danahy and sophomore Bobby Sincero each played in a game last season, while rookie Sam Somers rounds out Army’s group of goalies. According to Alberici, Somers put forth a productive effort when given the chance during preseason and is capable of contributing when called upon. SCHEDULE Seven home games, six contests against opponents that were ranked in the top 20 of last spring’s final national polls and service-academy showdowns against Air Force in Texas and Navy at Michie Stadium highlight the 2012 Army lacrosse schedule. The Black Knights lift the lid on 2012 with three home games, beginning with Massachusetts on Feb. 10 – the earliest date Army has played on in its rich 95-year history. The team hosts Wagner (Feb. 15) and VMI (Feb. 18) over the next week before facing two of the nation’s premier teams on the road at Syracuse (Feb. 26) and Cornell (March 3). “As in previous years, we put together a tremendous strength of schedule out of conference to go along with great Patriot League competition,” Alberici said. “If we’re successful, it’s a schedule that is set up to help us reach our goals. It’s extremely competitive, and I know the team is looking forward to the challenges ahead.” The Black Knights will play seven non-conference contests prior to opening the 2012 Patriot League season on March 17 at Lehigh. The team’s final tune-up for that contest will be a March 10 meeting with service-academy rival Air Force in Houston, Texas, at The Kinkaid School. Army hosts Colgate, Navy and Holy Cross during its regular-season conference run. The Black Knights will go for a fourth straight win over rival Navy on Saturday, April 14. The game will be televised live on CBS Sports Network. In addition to Lehigh, Army visits Lafayette and Bucknell during the regular season. The 2012 Patriot League Tournament, which will air in its entirety on CBSSN, is set to take place on April 27 and 29 at the site of the highest seed. “The Patriot League is probably as tight as I’ve seen it in my seven years here,” Alberici said. “There are a lot of experienced teams coming back and others with new leadership. It’s going to be an interesting and exciting spring. Again, our goal of winning the Patriot League title and advancing to the NCAA Tournament has not wavered.”

GAME 1 FEBRUARY 12 #16/17 UMASS 8, #12/13 ARMY 5

Corey Reiser ’11 scored a goal in Army’s season opener at UMass.

AMHERST, Mass. - Senior attackman Jeremy Boltus scored two goals and added one assist, but it was not enough as #16/17 Massachusetts upset #12/13 Army, 8-5, on a chilly Saturday afternoon at Garber Field. UMass held a commanding 50-22 advantage in shots, but Army senior goalkeeper Tom Palesky recorded 18 saves to keep the Black Knights in the game throughout. UMass (1-0) opened the scoring less than two minutes into the contest as Colin Fleming netted a goal off an assist from Will Manny at the 13:43 mark. The Minutemen made it 2-0 at the 12:17 mark as Mike Fetterly potted an unassisted marker. UMass held a 20-2 edge in shots during the first quarter, but Palesky made seven saves to keep the Black Knights close. The Minutemen also won two of the three first-period faceoffs, but had to settle for a 2-0 advantage after 15 minutes. Army (0-1) scored twice within the first three minutes of the second period to knot the score at 2-2. Sophomore attackman Garrett Thul put the Black Knights on the scoreboard first at the 13:59 mark as he scooped up a loose ball, circled around the back of the cage and scored from close range. Army then tallied the equalizer at 12:04 of the second period when Boltus found senior midfielder Jay Laing for his first career goal. UMass quickly regained its two-goal lead, however, as the Minutemen scored twice over the next three minutes with Steve D’Amario and Ryan Hantverk netting unassisted goals. Army cut the UMass lead to 4-3 with 7:57 to play in the first half as Boltus scored off a feed from junior defenseman Larry LoRusso. LoRusso sprinted into the Black Knights’ offensive end on a clear and found Boltus on the left wing. The Army co-captain wasted little time beating UMass goalkeeper Tim McCormack with a low shot to the short side. UMass pushed its lead to 5-3 with 3:07 to play in the second stanza as Art Kell scored off an assist from Anthony Biscardi. The Minutemen were able to carry that two-goal cushion into halftime. UMass outshot Army 32-10 in the first half, and the Minutemen enjoyed an 18-11 edge in groundballs. Biscardi scored less than two minutes into the third quarter to extend UMass’ lead to 6-3 at the 13:13 mark. Both teams were held off the scoreboard for the remainder of the period, and the Minutemen took their three-goal lead into the fourth quarter.

A slashing penalty against LoRusso at the end of the third quarter allowed UMass to begin the final stanza with a man-up opportunity. Fleming wasted little time adding to the Minuteman lead as he scored his second goal of the day off an assist from Manny just 27 seconds into the quarter. Boltus scored his second goal of the day with 2:46 to play in the fourth quarter to draw the Black Knights to within 7-4, but Manny reestablished UMass’ fourgoal lead less than one minute later when he scored off a pass from Biscardi at the 1:53 mark. Army capped the scoring with 13 seconds left as senior attackman Corey Reiser scored his first career goal off a feed from senior midfielder Brandon Butler. McCormack finished with nine saves to pick up the win for UMass. The Minutemen held a 27-17 advantage in groundballs, while each team won eight faceoffs.

ARMY BLACK KNIGHTS 2011 GAME-BY-GAME RECAPS GAME 2 FEBRUARY 19 #12/13 ARMY 12, VMI 6 LEXINGTON, Va. - Sophomore midfielder Alex Van Krevel scored three goals on seven shots, while senior attackman Jeremy Boltus led all players with six points on two goals and four assists as #12/13 Army posted its first win of 2011 by virtue of a commanding 12-6 decision at VMI on Saturday afternoon. The Black Knights improved to 3-0 all-time against the Keydets with their first road game of the series. Army (1-1) dominated nearly every statistical category, including a 45-25 advantage in shots. “The team played hard from the opening whistle,” said head coach Joe Alberici. “Derek Sipperly did a great job on the face off and really setting the tone for us early. We pressured a lot offensively, especially early on. Our defensive effort extended to the perimeter, which enabled us to get the ball on the ground several times. We just kept playing the next play and won the game in the middle of the field.” Sipperly won his first six face offs, the majority of which came against VMI junior captain Stephen Robarge, who finished 2010 ranked fourth nationally in face offs won. Army led 2-1 after the first quarter and outshot the Keydets 16-4 in the opening 15 minutes. Sophomore attackman Garrett Thul opened the scoring after reeling in a pass from sophomore midfielder Pat Brennan on Army’s first man-up opportunity at the 9:26 mark. Van Krevel followed with his first score of the game just 29 seconds later, giving the Black Knights a 2-0 lead. VMI’s Keith Long got the Keydets on the board with 1:16 left in the first. A VMI goal 1:22 into the second quarter leveled the score at 2-2. That would be the Keydets’ last goal of the half, as a stifling Army defense keyed a 6-2 halftime lead. Van Krevel scored his second goal before the break, while Hayes, Boluts and junior midfielder Matt Hurley all found the back of the net once. Van Krevel wasted no time scoring completing his hat trick, as he beat VMI goalie Kelly McMinn 46 seconds into the third quarter. The Black Knights continued to roll, scoring four more goals in the third, including freshman midfielder Tyler Kamides’ first collegiate goal with five seconds remaining in the third. Neither team scored over the opening nine minutes of the fourth quarter until junior attackman Conor Hayes’ goal gave Army its largest lead of the afternoon (12-4) with 5:47 remaining. VMI would score twice more in the final five minutes, but time ran out on the Keydets. VMI’s McMinn finished with 18 saves in goal, while All-American goalie Tom Palesky of Army collected six saves on 12 shots on goal.

GAME 3 FEBRUARY 27 #2/1 SYRACUSE 11, #18/17 ARMY 9 SYRACUSE, N.Y. - The #18/17 Army lacrosse team erased a 7-1 first-quarter deficit and scored eight of the last 12 goals of the contest, but time ran out on the Black Knights upset hopes in an 11-9 setback at No. 2/1 Syracuse on Sunday afternoon at the Carrier Dome. Sophomore attackman Garrett Thul paced Army with his first hat trick of the season. Senior midfielder Rob McCallion scored twice in the fourth quarter and assisted on Army’s (1-2) final goal of the game for a season-high three points. Senior attackman Jeremy Boltus, playing in front of a hometown crowd, tallied three points in a goal and two assists. Senior goalkeeper Tom Palesky made nine saves, including six in the second quarter as Army began to stage its comeback. Syracuse (2-0) out-shot Army by a 25-8 margin in the first half, but the Black Knights rebounded to hold a 20-9 edge over the final 30 minutes. Syracuse won 14 of 23 face-offs and held a 2822 advantage in ground balls. Both teams finished 1-of-4 on extra-man opportunities. Syracuse scored on seven of its first nine shots and led Army 7-0 before Thul got the Black Knights on the board with his first of his three goals in a man-up situation. Syracuse senior goalie John Galloway appeared to stop Thul’s shot from 12 yards out, but the ball snuck in the goal with 34 seconds remaining in the first quarter. Syracuse matched its largest advantage of the game with the first goal of the second quarter, extending its lead to 8-1 before Army dug in defensively and began to find its rhythm in the offensive zone. Both teams netted two goals in the second quarter, leaving Army staring at a 9-3 deficit heading into halftime. Army opened the second half scoring when senior midfielder Brandon Butler took advantage of an Orange miscue, ran the ball coast-to-coast for his first goal of the season to make it 9-4 Orange with 9:18 to play in the third quarter. The Black Knights went on to hold Syracuse scoreless over the remainder of the quarter and did so for a span of nearly 26 minutes stretching the final 2:33 of the first half and 9:09 into the fourth quarter. The Black Knights continued to chip away at the deficit in the meantime, using a four-goal barrage during a four-minute stretch of the fourth quarter. Sophomore midfielder Pat Brennan got the rally going as he found the top corner of the cage for

his first career goal with 10:35 on the clock. Just over two minutes later, rookie midfielder Tyler Kamide laced his second goal in as many games, hauling in a pass from Boltus and pulling Army within three goals (9-6) at the 8:23 mark. The Black Knights continued to take advantage of every possession midway through the fourth quarter. Palesky stopped a JoJo Marasco shot on the next Orange possession and Army capitalized as McCallion tallied his first point of the year. Dodging from the right side, McCallion’s score with 6:35 remaining inched Army within two (9-7). Syracuse won the next two face-offs and it resulted in junior attackman Tim Desko completing his first career hat trick to give the Orange a threegoal cushion (10-7) with 5:51. Syracuse went on to kill an Army man-up chance a minute later, but the Black Knights’ rally continued on the next possession when McCallion struck again with an unassisted goal at the 4:35 mark. Thul brought the Army crowd to its feed and the Black Knights within one goal (10-9) when he ripped a shot from 20 yards into the top left corner of the goal. That would end Army’s scoring, while Syracuse’s Jeremy Thompson’s second goal of the day gave the Orange some insurance with 1:06 to play. Desko and JoJo Marasco paced Syracuse with three goals apiece. Galloway made nine saves, seven of which came in the second half.

WEST POINT, N.Y. - Senior goalkeeper Tom Palesky made six of his 11 saves in the final quarter and junior midfielder Devin Lynch netted the game-winning goal with two minutes to play, keying No. 8/9 Army in a 7-6 win over visiting Lafayette at Michie Stadium. A back-and-forth affair all afternoon, Army (7-2, 2-0 Patriot League) edged Lafayette (2-6, 0-3) by one goal for the third-straight meeting. The Black Knights won for the ninth time in a row at Michie Stadium, dating back to the 2010 season. Sophomore attackman Garrett Thul scored the second of his team-high two goals to break a 5-5 tie with 5:50 to play. Lynch gave the Black Knights a 7-5 cushion with his unassisted score at the 2:06 mark, which Army needed as the Leopards’ Colin Serling scored off a Cesar Munoz win on the ensuing faceoff. Lafayette won the next faceoff, but Army junior defenseman Larry LoRusso came up with a key caused turnover with a minute to play, which allowed the Black Knights to run out the clock. Nine of Palesky’s 11 saves came in the second half and included a handful at point-blank range. The Plano, Texas, native played all 60 minutes and finished with a team-high five ground balls. Defensive midfielders Brandon Butler and Tim Henderson added four ground balls apiece. Henderson netted his fourth goal of the season in the second quarter. Sophomore defenseman Drew Kearns made his first career start and led Army with three caused turnovers. Kearns marked Lafayette senior Tom Perini, who entered the game second in the league in points, and held him scoreless to help buoy the defense. Senior attackman Jeremy Boltus paced Army with four points on a goal and three assists. Thul’s two goals came on a team-high eight shots. He also finished with three ground balls. Lynch and Henderson joined junior midfielder Conor Hayes and senior midfielder Rob McCallion with single goals. The Leopards out-scored Army by a 2-1 margin in the third quarter and leveled the score at 5-5 with a goal at the 9:53 mark of the fourth quarter. Four minutes later, McCallion fed Thul from behind the net for a laser shot past Lafayette goalkeeper Andrijko Andrusko with 9:53 to play. Lynch followed with Army’s only unassisted goal of the day, dodging from the right side and lacing the ball past Andrusko with 2:06 to play. Lafayette’s final goal came at the 1:45 mark and the Black Knights rode its defense as time wore out.

ARMY BLACK KNIGHTS 2011 GAME-BY-GAME RECAPS GAME 10 APRIL 2 COLGATE 13, #9/9 ARMY 11 HAMILTON, N.Y. - Colgate capitalized on four of its five extra-man chances, scored a man-down goal and held off a fourth quarter Army rally as the Raiders ended the Black Knights’ six-game win streak by way of a 13-11 Patriot League victory on Saturday afternoon at Andy Kerr Stadium. Army (7-3, 2-1 Patriot League), which jumped out to a 4-1 lead in the early going, trailed by as many as four goals (10-6) midway through the third quarter, but the Black Knights would net four unanswered scores to level the score at 10-10 on a Garrett Thul goal with 7:34 left in the game. Colgate (7-3, 3-0) went on to score three of the final four goals of the game, including two in the final 1:35, to secure the win and remain undefeated in Patriot League play. Thul led the Black Knights with four goals and his second assist of the season, while senior attackman Jeremy Boltus added four points on two goals and two assists. Three of Thul’s goals came in the final 10-plus minutes of action, while both Boltus goals were tallied in the second half. Senior attackman Corey Reiser scored two of Army’s first three goals of the game for two points, while sophomore midfielder Pat Brennan, senior midfielder Rob McCallion and sophomore attackman Andrew Boyd each scored. After Army jumped out to a 4-1 lead just two minutes into the second period, Colgate scored six of the final seven goals of the half to take a 7-5 advantage into the locker room at halftime. The momentum remained in the Raiders’ favor throughout much of the third quarter before Boltus’ unassisted goal with one second left in the third seemed to give the Black Knights a lift. Army outscored Colgate 4-3 in the final period, but fell short in the waning minutes. Colgate out-shot Army 40-36 on the afternoon and won 15 of 27 face-offs. Senior goalkeeper Tom Palesky made eight saves, seven of which came in the first half. Colgate’s Jared Madison turned away 13 shots. Neither goalkeeper registered a save during a furious fourth quarter on both ends of the field. Colgate’s Peter Baum led all scorers with six points on four goals and two assists. The Raiders won the ground ball battle by a 35-25 margin. Senior midfielder Brandon Butler tallied a careerhigh seven ground balls to lead Army. Junior long stick midfielder Tim Henderson collected four.

GAME 11 APRIL 9 #15/15 BUCKNELL 8, #13/14 ARMY 7 Army took a 4-1 as Thul tallied his first goal of the day from close range exactly two minutes into the second period. The Raiders went on to score six of the final seven goals of the first half to take a 7-5 halftime lead. McCallion’s goal at the 2:47 mark accounted for Army’s only goal during the Raider run. The Black Knights pulled within one score as Boltus hit Boyd for a goal 2:55 into the third quarter. The Raiders proceeded to score the next three goals unanswered and take their largest lead of the afternoon (10-4) with 7:26 remaining in the third. Boltus’ last-second, close-range goal trimmed the deficit to three (10-7) and ended a 12:04 Army scoring drought. Army scored the first three goals of the fourth quarter, as a pair of Thul scores bookended a Boltus goal and the duo leveled the score at 1010 with 7:34 remaining. The Black Knights pulled within one twice more over the final minutes, but Colgate answered each time. After Thul’s shot at the 1:08 mark trickled past Madison to make it 12-11 in favor of the Raiders, Army won the faceoff but committed an untimely turnover with under a minute to go. Colgate ate the clock and tacked on an insurance goal with Palesky out of the net at 00:25.

WEST POINT, N.Y. - A battle of top 15 teams lived up to the hype but it was No. 15/15 Bucknell surviving an 8-7 decision against No. 13/14 Army in front of nearly 3,000 fans on Saturday afternoon at Michie Stadium. The Bison led 5-4 at the half and held on in the waning seconds, as Army made it a one-goal game with 56 seconds remaining but could not come up with the equalizer. Sophomore attackman Garrett Thul matched a season-high four goals to lead the Black Knights. Senior attackman Jeremy Boltus tallied three assists, including two on Thul scores. Boltus’ final helper came on a Conor Hayes goal with 56 seconds remaining, pulling the Black Knights within 8-7. Junior Derek Sipperly won the ensuing faceoff to give Army possession, but a costly turnover and offsides call with seven seconds remaining thwarted the Black Knights’ rally. A back-and-forth battle all game long, Bucknell seemed to capture the momentum in taking a 7-4 lead less than four minutes into the third quarter. The Black Knights did not back down, however, scoring three of the final four goals of the game. Army out-shot the Bison by a 33-25 margin, while both teams picked up 28 ground balls. Army outshot Bucknell 11-3 in the final 15 minutes, but the Bison jumped on the shoulders of sophomore goalkeeper Kyle Feeney the rest of the way. Feeney made four of his 11 saves in the final period with all four coming in the final six minutes of action. Sophomore attackman Chase Bailey paced the Bison with four points (2G, 2A). Army senior defenseman Bill Henderson marked Bucknell leading scorer Ryan Klipstein for much of the afternoon and held him to just two assists. Penalties peppered the game on both sides, as Bucknell went 3-of-7 on extra-man chances and Army converted 2-of-5. Bucknell made its move in the second quarter, outscoring Army 4-2 en route to a 5-4 halftime lead. Both teams found pay dirt twice during the third frame with each team netting a man-up goal. Boltus earned his second assist of the day as Army inched within 7-6 at the end of the third. Bucknell extended its lead to 8-6 on a Bailey goal at the 8:29 mark. The Black Knights’ blood continued to pump throughout the final eight minutes, but it was Hayes’ score with 56 seconds remaining that breathed life into Army’s rally hopes. Hayes’ score was possible in large part to the defensive play of junior Larry LoRusso in transition. Sipperly won the ensuing possession, but Army could not convert. The loss ended Army’s nine-game home win streak, which dated back to March 20, 2010.

2010 PATRIOT LEAGUE CHAMPIONS 2011 GAME-BY-GAME RECAPS GAME 13 APRIL 23 #17/18 ARMY 10, HOLY CROSS 7

West Point’s Class of 2011 is the only group in Army history to beat Navy four times.

GAME 12 APRIL 16 #17/18 ARMY 14, NAVY 9 ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Senior attackman Jeremy Boltus (4G, 3A) and sophomore Garrett Thul (5G, 1A) combined for 13 points, No. 17/18 Army outscored Navy 10-2 in the second half and the Black Knights came away with a 14-9 win at archrival Navy in the 90th meeting between the two storied programs on a rain-soaked Saturday afternoon at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. The victory punched Army’s ticket to the 2011 Patriot League Tournament where the Black Knights will look to defend their title. Army (8-4, 3-2 Patriot League) entered the locker room facing a 7-4 deficit, but came out to score the first four goals of the third quarter and shift momentum in the visitor’s favor. The Black Knights’ 4-0 run came in the span of 4:57 and four different players found pay dirt. The “Star Game” win marked the program’s first at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium since 1997 and was the Black Knights’ third-straight triumph over the Mids. Boltus’ seven-point effort tied a season-high for the third time this spring, while Thul matched a career-high in both points (six) and goals (five). Army’s 14 goals came on 21 shots. All five Thul shots resulted in goals, while Boltus went 4-for-5. Junior midfielder Devin Lynch scored the final goal of the first half and opened the second-half scoring for his two goals. Senior Rob McCallion totaled three points on a goal and two assists, while junior long stick midfielder Tim Henderson and junior defensive midfielder Matt Hurley each tallied a goal. Army’s defense held the Mids to just a single goal in each of the final two quarters. Much of that came thanks to senior goalkeeper Tom Palesky, who recorded nine of his 11 saves in the second half. Navy’s R.J. Wickham gave up 10 goals, made one save and did not play the fourth quarter. In a game that featured five ties, Navy owned much of the first half. The teams traded goals to start the contest as Thul (11:16) and Boltus (2:35) kept Army in a 2-2 tie. Tucker Hull’s goal with 46 seconds remaining in the first gave the Mids a 3-2 lead at the end of the first quarter. Boltus found Thul for the Black Knights’ third goal of the game as Army knotted the score (3-3) just 1:20 into the second quarter. Navy (4-8, 2-4) scored the next four goals unanswered to take

its largest lead of the day (7-3) with just over two minutes to play in the half. Lynch’s first score of the afternoon came with 11.6 seconds on the clock, as he took his defender one-on-one on the run. The 7-4 score stood at halftime. Lynch picked up right where he left off coming out of the break, scoring his second goal of the day 1:06 into the action. Junior midfielder Derek Sipperly won the ensuing faceoff, allowing Henderson to scoop the ground ball and locate Hurley for the score nine seconds later. Hurley’s third goal of the season pulled the Black Knights within 7-6. Henderson got in on the action himself, launching a shot from 16 yards out past Wickham at the 11:30 mark, once again knotting the score at 7-all. Boltus found Thul for the second time with 9:03 on the clock as the Black Knights took their first lead of the afternoon. Navy would come back to tie the score at 8-8, but Army went on to score six of the final seven goals of the game. Boltus broke an 8-8 tie with the first of his three-straight goals with 3:04 to play in the third quarter. Thul scored two of the final three goals of the game, while McCallion’s goal with 2:38 remaining in the game put the exclamation point on the Army victory.

WORCESTER, Mass. - Sophomore attackman Garrett Thul posted his 15th career hat trick and senior midfielder Rob McCallion matched a season-high three points (2G, 1A) to lead No. 17/18 Army past Holy Cross on a rain-soaked Saturday afternoon at Holy Cross Field. The victory improved Army to 4-2 in the Patriot League and was the team’s final regular-season test before next weekend’s conference tournament. Thul’s hat trick was his eighth of the season and fourth in a row, while he extended his goal-scoring streak to 22 games. Junior attackman Conor Hayes posted his first hat trick of the season, while junior midfielder Devin Lynch and senior midfielder Jay Laing also scored one goal apiece. Senior attackman Jeremy Boltus, who moved into sole possession of second place on Army’s all-time assist list with 116, helped on two goals for the afternoon. Lynch added two assists for three points. Wet conditions certainly played a factor in the backand-forth affair. The teams combined for 38 turnovers, while Army held a 32-30 edge in the ground ball game. Thul and long stick midfielders Tim Henderson and Tom Dalton paced Army with four ground balls apiece. Holy Cross came out swinging and took a 3-1 lead midway through the first quarter, but Army scored four of the five goals in the second quarter, which proved to be the difference maker. The Black Knights led 7-5 at halftime. Scoring was at a premium during a seesaw third frame, during which each team scored once. Army missed its first shot on a man-up chance, but Lynch converted on the restart at the 10:35 mark. McCallion earned his lone assist of the day, helping Army take an 8-5 lead. Holy Cross counter-punched less than a minute later and headed into the final 15 minutes trailing 8-6. Two early goals allowed Army to distance itself from the Crusaders. Both Hayes and Thul beat Fisher in the cage within the first 3:20 as the Black Knights took a 10-6 lead. Holy Cross scored its final goal at 8:23 (10-7), but the Crusaders would get no closer.

ARMY BLACK KNIGHTS 2011 GAME-BY-GAME RECAPS GAME 14 PATRIOT LEAGUE SEMIFINALS APRIL 29 #3 COLGATE 7, #2 ARMY 6 LEWISBURG, Pa. - A lengthy defensive stand allowed the Army lacrosse team to dig out of a 6-0 hole but the thirdseeded Black Knights could not finish the job in a 7-6 loss to No. 2 Colgate in the first semifinal game of the 2011 Patriot League Tournament on Friday evening at host Bucknell’s Christy Mathewson-Memorial Stadium. Army regained a key possession with 22 seconds on the clock, but Colgate’s Jared Madison made his ninth save of the day in timely fashion to prevent sophomore attackman Garrett Thul from netting the equalizer. Colgate (10-4) came out of the gate on fire, rolling out to a 6-0 lead and holding Army (9-5) scoreless in the opening quarter for the first time all season. The Black Knights got on the board thanks to senior attackman Jeremy Boltus’ lone goal of the day with 8:58 to play in the second quarter. While Army’s defense forced a 33-minute Colgate scoring drought, the Black Knights’ offense engineered a 5-0 run to pull within 6-5 with 1:33 remaining in the third quarter. Each team scored once in the fourth period, as Colgate’s Jeff Ledwick netted the eventual game-winner at the 12:29 mark. The teams played back and fourth quarter until Boltus hit sophomore midfielder Andrew Boyd for his second goal of the game with 5:23 on the clock. Army regained possession after a Raider shot with 1:10 to play, but an untimely Boltus turnover led to a costly pushing penalty on the co-captain put him in the box with 32 seconds remaining. With the 2011 Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year on the sideline, Colgate had a chance to pad its lead but turned the ball over instead and gave Army a chance to send the game to overtime. Thul let loose a straight-on shot, but Madison came up with the save as time expired. Boyd’s two goals were the most by any player in the game as 12 different players combined to score 13 goals. Boltus led Army with three points on a goal and two assists. Thul, senior midfielder Rob McCallion and junior attackman John Adair all scored single goals. Senior defenseman Matt Marasco tallied his first point of the season when he assisted on Thul’s man-up transition goal with 5:43 remaining in the third quarter. Both teams scored a man-up goal. The Raiders won the ground-ball battle, 27-20, while also winning 11 of 16 face-offs. The teams combined for 24 turnovers. Palesky led Army with five ground balls, followed by senior midfielder Brandon Butler and junior defenseman Larry LoRusso with four and three ground balls, respectively. Butler caused two of Colgate’s 11 turnovers.

Andrew Boyd’s first-quarter goal was Army’s second of the game.

GAME 15 MAY 6 #3/4 JOHNS HOPKINS 15, #19/20 ARMY 10 WEST POINT, N.Y. - On a night when No. 19/20 Army honored 14 members of the Class of 2011, senior attackman Jeremy Boltus tallied a career-high six assists and senior midfielder Rob McCallion recorded his 100th career point in a 1510 loss to No. 3/4 Johns Hopkins under the Michie Stadium lights on Friday night. Senior attackman Kyle Wharton led players with five goals for the visiting Blue Jays. The final regular-season game for both teams, Hopkins (12-2) cruised to a 9-3 halftime advantage and went on to hold off a second-half Army rally (9-6) to win its seventh-straight game. The Black Knights outscored the Blue Jays 7-6 over the final 30 minutes. McCallion’s hat trick marked his first of the season as he became just the fourth middie in Army’s 94-year history to record 100 career points. Four of Boltus’ six assists came in the final 8:01 of the game. The co-captain and second alltime scoring leader in Army history with 214 points assisted on McCallion’s 100th point on the final goal of the game with 17 seconds remaining. Sophomore attackman Garrett Thul extended his goal-scoring streak to 24 games and recorded his team-high ninth hat trick of the season with three goals. Senior attackman Corey Reiser, juniors Conor Hayes and John Adair, along with sophomore Andrew Boyd, each scored single goals. Senior goalkeeper Tom Palesky, the 2011 Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Year, played all 60 minutes and totaled eight saves. Hopkins sophomore Pierce Bassett allowed all but one goal and collected nine saves before leaving the game in the 58th minute. Hopkins outshot Army by a 38-27 margin and scored four man-up goals. Army was 3-of-5 on extra-man chances in a game that included 12 penalties. Anchored by senior Matt Dolente, the Blue Jays won 22-of-28 face-offs, which aided largely in a 42-22 ground ball advantage. Wharton scored two of the first five goals of the game as the Blue Jays took a 4-1 advantage over the first 11:03. Thul’s 40th goal of the season came unassisted as he bounced one past Bassett at the 6:52 mark to account for the only tie in the game (1-1). Hopkins went on to score 13 of the next 16 goals to take its largest lead of the night (14-4) on a Chris Boland goal with 5:19 remaining in the third quarter.

The Black Knights’ offense kicked into gear over the last 20 minutes of the contest as they netted six of the final seven goals of the night. After Boland’s third-quarter score, Adair and McCallion scored back-to-back within a span of 1:27 stretching into the start of the final period to make it 14-6. Freshman attackman Benn Brandon scored Hopkins’ final goal of the game at 10:53, while Army’s second all-time leader in assists, Boltus, engineered a 4-0 Black Knight run to end the contest. Boltus fed Thul for an EMO lazer at 8:01 and found McCallion twice over the final seven minutes. The Baldwinsville, N.Y., native also helped on Reiser’s behind the back score at 1:51. Army’s Class of 2011 went 6-0 in the Patriot League last spring, won the tournament title and made Army’s first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2005 and upset second-seeded Syracuse in double-overtime at the Carrier Dome during its tenure. Included among those to graduate from West Point on May 21 is defenseman Bill Henderson, the only two-time team captain in Army history. Joining him will be Boltus, Palesky, Reiser, McCallion, Brandon Butler, Charlie Sauter, Chris Day, Shane Smith, Matt Marasco, Jay Laing and Pat Mulholland. Friday’s game drew a season-high 5,653 fans, and Army appeared on national television via CBS Sports Network for the third time this year.

Now in its third decade as an all-sport conference combining academic and athletic excellence, the Patriot League sponsors championships in 23 men and women’s sports. Initially started as an NCAA Division I-AA football conference in 1986, the Patriot League became an all-sport conference in 1990 and includes American, Army, Bucknell, Colgate, Holy Cross, Lafayette, Lehigh and Navy as full members, and Fordham, Georgetown and MIT as associate members. These institutions are among the oldest and most prestigious in the nation and their alumni have and continue to play leadership roles in shaping our country. Since 1998, the Patriot League has ranked first each year among all Division I conferences awarding athletic aid in the NCAA Graduation Rate Report. The League finished at the top spot with nearly all of its teams reporting a graduation rate of 85 percent or higher in the most recent data. In addition, 82 teams from Patriot League full-member institutions earned NCAA Academic Performance Program Public Recognition Awards after posting academic progress rate scores in the top 10 percent of all squads in their respective sports. The Patriot League’s mission is simple, to provide successful competitive athletic experiences while maintaining high academic standards, and to prepare its student-athletes to be leaders in society.

Under the guidance of head coach Joe Alberici, Army lacrosse players have excelled in the classroom, as well as the lacrosse field. Since Alberici arrived at West Point six years ago, Army players have won the Patriot League Scholar-Athlete of the Year award three times. In 2010, Andrew Maisano was named the Patriot League ScholarAthlete of the Year for lacrosse in addition to being named the recipient of the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award. Maisano, who became the fourth Army lacrosse player to earn the league’s Scholar-Athlete of the Year award in the 20-year history of the conference, became the first Army lacrosse player to ever receive the Patriot League Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year award. The award considers student-athletes from each of the conference’s 23 sports. Here is a breakdown of past recipients. of the Patriot League ScholarAthlete of the Year award for lacrosse.

2010 PATRIOT LEAGUE CHAMPIONS ARMY LACROSSE HISTORY

Early Army lacrosse action from 1939.

One of the most storied institutions in the nation, West Point is also home to one of the oldest and most successful college lacrosse programs in the country. The Black Knights embark on their 94th season of intercollegiate lacrosse Feb. 10 (the earliest season opener in Academy history) when they host Massachusetts at Michie Stadium. Joe Alberici enters his seventh season along the sidelines and hopes to lead the program back to a Patriot League title and run in the NCAA Tournament. With 725 victories under its belt, Army’s lacrosse program ranks sixth in all-time wins, behind only Johns Hopkins, Syracuse, Navy, Hobart and Maryland. Army lacrosse has earned eight national championships before the NCAA sanctioned a postseason tournament in 1971, while 12 men (eight players and four coaches) associated with the program’s history have been welcomed into the National Lacrosse Foundation Hall of Fame. Additionally, former legendary head coach F. Morris Touchstone was part of the inaugural class to be enshrined in the Army Sports Hall of Fame in 2004. Touchstone, who retired in 1957, is still the Academy’s all-time winningest lacrosse coach. He was joined by legendary head coach Ace Adams in the Army Hall of Fame in 2011. Further testimony to Army’s prominent place on the landscape of collegiate lacrosse is evident in the postseason awards. Two of the five existing national lacrosse awards bear the name of a former member of the Army lacrosse “family.” The national Coach of the Year award is named in honor of Touchstone, while the national Player of the Year award is recognized as the Lt. Raymond J. Enners Award – a 1967 Academy graduate. Two former Black Knights (Pete Cramblet in 1970 and Tom Cafaro in 1971) have won the Enners Award, while James “Ace” Adams (1961) and Dick Edell (1978) were presented with the Touchstone “Coach of the Year” honor. Three Black Knights have been named the nation’s top attackman while two have earned outstanding goalie plaudits (including A. Norman Webb, who earned that distinction in 1963 and 1964). Eight Army players have captured the nod as the top defenseman in the country.

James Hartinger to follow. Wilson was the first West Point athlete to earn first team All-America accolades in both lacrosse and football in the same year, accomplishing that feat in 1926. Charles Born, a first team football All-American in 1925 was selected as a first team lacrosse All-American in 1928. Throughout its early days, the lacrosse program enjoyed a close affiliation with the Army football team as many gridders kept themselves athletically fit by excelling in lacrosse each spring. Among Army’s early lacrosse All-Americans were gridders Wilson, Born, Milt Summerfelt, Robert Stillman, Clinton True and Woodrow Wilson. Bill Carpenter would equal that feat prior to his graduation in 1960. Carpenter achieved national acclaim as the “Lonely End” on Army’s football team. Much like Touchstone, who was a lacrosse visionary, the “Lonely End” formation was the brainchild of Hall of Fame football coach Earl “Red” Blaik. So intertwined were the success of the gridders and laxmen that both programs captured national championships in 1944 and 1945.

TRACING LACROSSE’S ROOTS Lacrosse had a sparse beginning at West Point as an Academy-sponsored sport. The U.S. Military Academy supported an intercollegiate squad in DAWN OF THE MODERN ERA 1907, 1909 and 1910 before the sport really took The one constant throughout all of Army’s off for good in 1921. Despite its shaky start off success was a stingy defense. Don Tillar and the field, the program enjoyed immediate on-field Carpenter were named the nation’s top defenseman success, foreshadowing a long, rich history as one in 1959 and 1960, respectively, headlining a of the nation’s elite teams. Those squads of 1907, span of 15 years in which six Black Knights were 1909 and 1910 combined to win all 10 of their presented with that honor. games. The benefactor, as well as a chief contributor, of By 1923, in only the program’s sixth year, head Army’s stellar defense during the mid-1960s was coach Talbot Hunter brought home the Academy’s Norman Webb, who became a two-time national first national championship when his Black Knights Goalie of the Year and an All-American. concluded the season with an 8-1-1 mark. In Adams had the unenviable task of replacing Hunter’s first campaign along the Hudson, Army Touchstone in 1958. But “Ace” was equal to the was 2-3. However, the Black Knights rebounded task, forging a 9-0 mark in his first year on the job with a 6-1 showing in 1922, beginning a stretch and earning a share of the national title. It was of 33 consecutive seasons in which Army posted a Army’s first perfect season since 1910. winning record. In a dozen years at West Point, Adams’ teams West Point’s lacrosse fortunes reached its won .777 percent of its games — including a then all-time high under direction of the legendary Academy-record 10-win performance during his Touchstone, who guided his charges to 214 wins, against just 73 losses and four ties, during a 29-year career as Army mentor. He roamed the Army sidelines from 1929 through 1957. During his tenure, the Black Knights of the Hudson won or shared three national titles, capturing the outright crown in 1944 before sharing it with Navy in 1945 and Princeton in 1951. Forty-two of the 83 first team All-Americans in Army history came while Touchstone was the coach. His resume, laden with a .743 winning percentage at Army and coupled with a strong four-year stint as head coach at Yale, earned him an induction into the Hall of Fame in 1960, just three years after his retirement. His entry into the Hall paved the way for All-Americans Harry Army played its home games on “The Plain,”as well as at Daly Field, Clinton Wilson, Thomas Truxtun and Field and Shea Stadium, before moving into Michie Stadium.

ARMY BLACK KNIGHTS ARMY LACROSSE HISTORY

ARMY JOINS EXCLUSIVE 700-WIN CLUB IN 2009 Army became only the fifth lacrosse program in the nation to total 700 victories with its win over VMI on Feb. 14, 2009. In 94 seasons, the Black Knights are the owners of a 725-344-7 record since defeating Steven’s Tech, 3-1, in the program’s first outing in 1907. Maryland became the sixth to reach the plateau later in the 2009 season. Army is one of only six teams with more than 700 wins: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7 8.

final season in 1969 — and shared the national championship four times, 1958, 1959, 1961 and 1969. In 1961, after a 9-2 campaign, Adams was named national Coach of the Year. An All-America midfielder during his college days at Johns Hopkins, Adams joined Touchstone in the Hall of Fame during induction ceremonies in 1975. By that time Robert Miser, Webb and Cramblet had also been enshrined following stellar careers. In 2010, Dick Edell increased Army’s representation in the Hall of Fame to 11 with his enshrinement. It marked the second consecutive year that the Hall of Fame class included a member of the Army family. In 2003, another stalwart from the Ace Adams era earned his way into the hallowed hall when Tom Sheckells (USMA ’65) was voted in posthumously. Cramblet and Cafaro, who were the cornerstones of the Army team during the transition from Adams to successor Al Pisano, helped establish the Black Knights as an explosive offensive team. Cramblet would graduate in 1970 as the Academy’s all-time leading scorer with 150 points, but Cafaro would shatter that mark one year later following an 85point senior season that vaulted his career point total to 167. With Pisano at the helm, the Black Knights played an instrumental role in the emergence of the NCAA Tournament. The NCAA unveiled its eightteam playoff format in 1971 and the Black Knights found themselves in the first lacrosse final four. Cafaro was the impetus behind that success, scoring 18 points in Army’s two contests. The Black Knights defeated Hofstra in the opening round (19-6) but lost to eventual champion Cornell, 17-16, in the semifinals. Both games were held at West Point. In fact, since the tourney’s inception, West Point has been the home to postseason play in seven different years, most recently in 2001 when the first round was held at Michie Stadium. The Black Knights were members of the first three NCAA tourney fields and last appeared in the NCAA Tournament in 2010, when they reached

the second round. Army is one of only 11 lacrosse programs that have appeared in at least a dozen postseason tournaments since the event began in 1971. Dick Edell, who succeeded Pisano and forged a .733 winning percentage in his seven-year stint at the Academy, continued Army’s success. He guided the Black Knights to the NCAA Tournament in four of his seven years along the Army sideline. Goalie George Slabowski and attackman Frank Giordano were the featured stars of Edell’s era. Both earned first team All-America accolades in 1983 — Edell’s final season — as Army put forth the first of two successive 11-3 marks. THE EMMER ERA Jack Emmer, who had been a highly successful coach during stints at Cortland State and Washington & Lee, replaced Edell in the spring of 1984. Emmer’s inaugural season along the banks of the Hudson was a resounding success as the team became just the second Army squad to reach the final four, edging Pennsylvania, 8-7 at Franklin Field in the NCAA Quarterfinals. That would be the first of eight postseason bids earned by Emmer’s Black Knights. When Army defeated Cornell in the 1996 season opener, Emmer joined Touchstone as the only coaches in Army history to reach 100 wins at the Academy. One of Emmer’s most successful seasons came in 1993 when a senior-dominated Army team — paced by Steve Heller, who would graduate as the Academy’s career scoring leader with 204 points — finished the regular season with an 11-3 record before beating Maryland 15-11 in the opening round of the NCAA tourney. In 1997 and 1998, Ross Yastrzemsky and Chad Hadlock eclipsed the century mark for career points. Yastrzemsky graduated as the program’s highest scoring midfielder, compiling 121 points. He added an honorable mention All-America certificate to his accolades after the 1997 season. Emmer coached 27 All-Americans in his 22 years at the Academy, including Jim Wagner and John Walker (USMA ’06). Tim Pearson (USMA ’02), a three-time honorable mention All-American, concluded his exceptional career as the Academy’s all-time leading scorer. He smashed Heller’s previous mark, finishing with 238 points. Emmer led Army into league play when the Patriot League was formed in 1991. The Black Knights did not lose a game to a conference foe in their first 25 contests, reeling off one of the nation’s longest conference winning streaks. That string still stands as the longest in Patriot League history. Army’s peerless leader guided the Black Knights back into the NCAA Tournament in 2005 for the eighth time and the 15th time overall for the storied program. It also marked the third straight season that the Black Knights were invited to the NCAA Tournament. Despite finishing runner-up at the Patriot League Tournament, Army was one of 10 at-large bids to the NCAA tournament. Emmer led his charges south of the Mason-Dixon line for a match-up with No. 8 Georgetown. The Black Knights dropped that NCAA First Round contest, 16-6 to the Hoyas. Emmer carried on the Academy’s long line of coaching success among a lineage of legendary lacrosse mentors at West Point. However, that long

Jack Emmer retired following the 2005 season as the winningest coach in NCAA lacrosse history. He collected 186 of his 325 wins during his 22 seasons at West Point.

run came to a close in May 2005 when Emmer announced his retirement from coaching after 36 years. He left the game as the all-time winningest lacrosse coach in NCAA history. NEW BEGINNINGS The 2006 season brought a change of guard over the Army lacrosse program as one-time assistant coach, Joe Alberici, returned to succeed his former mentor Jack Emmer. Alberici became just the 10th head coach in 88 years of the Academy’s program, following Joe Alberici and impressive list of four Hall of Fame coaches. In his first campaign as head coach, Alberici paced the Black Knights to an 8-7 finish and a No. 20 USILA/USA Today ranking. Army fell just short of the NCAA tournament after a runner-up finish at the Patriot League Championship. In 2008, Alberici led the Black Knights to a 9-6 record and the regular season Patriot League Championship with a 5-1 conference mark. For his efforts, he was named the Patriot League Coach of the Year, marking the first time an Army skipper won the award since Emmer nabbed his second honor in 1998. In 2010, Alberici guided Army to an 11-6 overall record, a perfect 6-0 Patriot League mark, two wins over Navy and its first-ever Patriot League tournament title. The Black Knights went on to knock off two-time defending national champion Syracuse in the first round of the NCAA tournament. The monumental win was lauded by many as one of the biggest upsets in collegiate lacrosse history. Last year, Alberici again took his Black Knights to the Patriot League Tournament. The team came out on the short end of a 7-6 score against Colgate in the semifinal round and finished the season with a 9-6 record.

Now in its 40th season, the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Tournament continues to be the premier event of the college lacrosse season each spring. NFL stadiums have hosted lacrosse’s final four in each of the past seven years, setting attendance records in each successive season. M&T Bank Stadium, home of the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens, served as host site for three championship events in 2003, 2004 and 2007, and will bring the championship weekend back again in 2010 and 2011. Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field served as host of championship weekend in 2005 and 2006, while Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass, home of the New England Patriots, hosted the 2008 and 2009 championships. Syracuse won its 11th NCAA Title last season with a 10-9 victory over Cornell in the championship game, played in front of over 50,000 fans. Army has played an important role in the development of the NCAA Tournament, having appeared in 15 postseason brackets and hosting tournament contests on seven occasions. The Black Knights have reached the final four twice since the tournament was created in 1971, Former head Coach Jack Emmer reached the NCAA Tournament 16 times, ranking him second all-time in NCAA history. He took the Army Black Knights to the postseason tournament a schoolrecord eight times. He also reached the postseason seven consecutive seasons during his previous two stops at Cortland and Washington & Lee. That mark of consistency ranks tied for 12th all-time in the NCAAs. Former Army great Tom Cafaro (’71) still holds a share of an NCAA Tournament record with his seven goals in the 1971 semifinals against Cornell. That is tied for the most goals scored by an individual in an NCAA semifinal game. It is also the second-highest total scored in any NCAA Tournament contest. Cafaro’s 18 points in the 1971 tournament set a postseason scoring record and is still tied for the seventh best single postseason performance by an individual in the NCAAs. More amazingly, Cafaro amassed his 18 points in just two tournament games.

2012 ARMY LACROSSE GUIDE | 75


ARMY BLACK KNIGHTS ARMY IN THE NCAA TOURNAMENT Since its inception in 1971, Army has played a distinctive role in the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championships. The Black Knights are one of only 13 programs to reach the postseason at least a dozen times, including three-straight appearances from 2003-2005. Additionally, Army has reached the final four of the tournament on two occasions (1971 and 1984). A grand total of 50 programs have qualified for the NCAA Tournament in its 40-year history. Expanding to 16 teams in 2003, the premier event of the men’s lacrosse season welcomes seven automatic qualifiers and selects nine at-large schools to fill out its bracket each year. The game’s growth over the years necessitated a move of championship weekend to larger stadiums. M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore has hosted three of the last five championship weekends, including last season, while Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field hosted the 2005 and 2006 festivities. The 2012 Final Four will once again be played over Memorial Day Weekend. The semifinals and finals will be played

at Gillette Stadium in Boston, Mass. The Black Knights have been a part of the NCAA Tournament 16 times and rank 12th all-time in tournament appearances. Army has qualified for the NCAAs at least twice in every decade since the tournament began in 1971. Seventh-year head coach Joe Alberici is no stranger to the NCAAs. He was an associate head coach at Duke University for nine seasons, leading the Blue Devils to the National Championship game in 2005 before falling by one goal to Johns Hopkins. Duke spent the majority of that season ranked second nationally behind the Blue Jays. West Point and venerable Michie Stadium have played host to the NCAA Tournament seven times, most recently in 2001 when Notre Dame, Bucknell, Virginia and Hofstra squared off in firstround tilts.

2010 PATRIOT LEAGUE CHAMPIONS THE ARMY-NAVY RIVALRY ALL-TIME RESULTS

Army players hoist the Patriot League Trophy after defeating Navy, 11-8, in the conference tournament championship game

One of the most celebrated and revered rivalries in all of sports, the Army-Navy competition is not limited to the gridiron. The two service academies compete in 21 other intercollegiate sports. I n l a c ro s s e , t h e A r my - N av y rivalry carries the same weight and expectations as its football counterpart. Adding to the mystique is the fact that the two academies annually rank in the national polls and are two of the most storied and successful programs in the history of the sport. Army and Navy rank among the all-time winningest programs in Division-I history. The two academies have combined for 25 national championships and even shared the national title in 1945 and 1961. Only 15 schools in the country have made a dozen or more NCAA Tournament appearances – Army and Navy are two of those institutions. The 90th chapter in the storied rivalry takes place on April 16 when Army travels to Annaplolis, Md., to face the Midshipmen at Navy-Marine Corps Stadium. Last year, Army knocked off Navy twice, including an 11-8 victory over the Mids in the Patriot League Tournament championship. The 2008 edition of the game marked the end of the longest run of consecutive wins by either team in the history of the rivalry. Army’s 9-6 victory snapped an 11-year, 13-game winning streak the Mids started in 1998. The two schools histories are deeply intertwined with one another. Navy head coach Richie Meade was an assistant under former Army head coach Jack Emmer at West Point from

1991-94. One of the Mids’ most recent top scorers, Ian Dingman, has an older brother, Lee, who graduated from West Point in 2000 and was an integral part of Emmer’s squads for four years. In the very first meeting, in 1924, the Midshipmen prevailed, 5-0. The two teams met every year from 192428, with Navy taking four wins and a tie, before putting the series on hold until 1933. After a nine-year wait, Army finally picked up its first win over Navy in 1933, 8-5. The Black Knights and Mids have met every year for the past 75 years. Navy holds a 56-27-3 advantage in the overall series. The Army-Navy series has consisted of numerous hard-fought games throughout the years. Of the first 79 Army-Navy clashes, 47 were decided by three goals or less, including 16 one-goal games and three ties. One of the most memorable of those one-goal affairs was a thrilling 11-10 double-overtime victory for the Black Knights in Annapolis in 1991. Army trailed 10-9 in the final minute with Navy holding possession of the ball trying to salt away the clock. Army goalie Rick Aguilar ranged far behind his own net to force a turnover, then fed Eric Waltz, who ran the length of the field and scored with four seconds to play. After a scoreless first overtime, the Black Knights’ Jim Gorman scored an unsettled goal with 1:05 left in the second overtime, ending a five-year losing streak to the Midshipmen. The 2000 game was no different, as the contest was tied five different times before Navy prevailed 10-8 in front of more than 2,600 fans at Michie Stadium. In 2002, the Mids came away

with a 9-6 victory in that encounter to extend their winning streak over Army. Navy scored three times in the first six minutes of the second half to turn a one-goal lead into a four-goal advantage. In 2003, the bitter rivals put on yet another spectacular show, earmarking another for the classics. Army jumped on top early, 3-1, at a jam-packed Rip Miller Field. However, homestanding Navy retaliated with three unanswered goals to take the lead. From there, the two lacrosse giants traded blow-forblow until the late stages of the fourth quarter. Navy scored twice in a 15 seconds to break a 9-9 tie. The Mids held a 12-10 advantage in the final minute of play, when Army’s Marko Kostovic scored with 16 seconds left. However, Navy won the ensuing faceoff and ran out the clock, ending Army’s comeback bid. In 2005, Army and Navy met twice in one season for the first time since 1981. The Midshipmen came away with a win in the regular-season encounter and again in the Patriot League Championship game to run their consecutive winning streak to nine straight. An Army-Navy record crowd of 12,117 saw the Midshipmen come away with a 12-9 victory and clinch home field advantage for the Patriot League Tournament later that month. On that occasion, another 5,451 fans poured into Navy-Marine Corps Stadium to watch Navy’s 15-8 victory. Army has won four of the last five meetings, including three-straight over the Mids. The Black Knights defeated Navy 11-8 to win the 2010 Patriot League title at West Point.
