During the two-year Michelle DePolo era, Army posted 61 wins, captured the regularseason Patriot League title in 2010 and hosted the tournament for the first time. Eight Black Knights were tabbed for conference all-star honors between 2010-11 with four named to the first team and four to the second unit, along with DePolo being selected the league’s Coach of the Year in 2010.


ARMY SOFTBALL COMPLEX

Army’s 25th anniversary as a varsity sport coincided with its move into a new, state-of-the-art Softball Complex located at North Athletic Field, adjacent to Gillis Field House, in the spring of 2003. The complex, completed in the fall of 2002, was dedicated that spring, but the original date for the ceremony (March 9, 2003) had to be postponed because of snow and poor field conditions. With the Black Knights headed south to the Rebel Spring Games in Florida, the first game in the new facility was moved back to Wednesday, March 26, with the Fordham Rams playing in the inaugural game. Brig. Gen. Daniel Kaufman, then-Dean of the Academic Board and one of the motivating forces behind construction of the facility, threw out the first pitch to then-Army Director of Athletics Rick Greenspan. Fordham’s 2-0 win ruined Army’s debut in its new facility, while inclement weather caused the nightcap to be cancelled. Just over a week later, the Black Knights notched their first wins in the new complex when they swept a doubleheader from Manhattan on Thursday, April 3. Army’s 2-1 first-game win was followed by a thrilling 6-5 victory that went 11 innings, which still ranks as the longest game at the complex. es Considered one of the finest softball facilities on the East Coast, the complex was recognized by A) the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) e as one of four Regional Turface/Field Maintenance h Award winners in 2004. Army shared the honor with n Texas A&M, Tennessee at Chattanooga and Southern Illinois with Stetson named the national winner.. e “The Army Softball Complex is a great facility we are privileged enough to call home,” noted 2010Patriott League Coach of the Michelle DePolo. The view alone of the Hudson River and surrounding hills makes it a remarkable location. “Inside, the entire playing surface, both infield and outfield, is flawless. The lights allow us to enjoy the field at anytime, particularly during the shortened New York days in the off-season. “There is room to expand and we are looking forward to completing the second phase of the project in the near future. The complex and its continuous additions are great examples of the commitment this institution shows toward athletics and the softball program.”

The complex includes a 500-seat grandstand with a fully-equipped press box, dugouts, two batting cages and an electronic scoreboard. The field dimensions are 200 feet down the lines and 210 feet to center field. With renovations among the athletic playing fields around West Point continuing to be of prime importance, the Softball Complex was upgraded in the fall of 2009 with new grass sod (blue grass) replacing the outfield surface, while the electronic scoreboard now sports a message board. Clark Companies, the same group that was awarded the project of constructing the complex, was also responsible for the sod project. The Softball Complex, celebrating its 10th season as the home field for the Black Knights, has made a large impact on the program. Army has reached the Patriot League Championship finals five times during that span, while capturing the regular-season title in 2010 compiling a season-best 17-8 home mark, breaking the 13-7 showing in 2005. Army has compiled an 86-78 (.524) mark over the past nine y years.

HOME TO YOUR BLACK KNIGHTS


FOLEY ATHLETIC CENTER The latest jewel in Army’s treasure trove of athletic facilities, Foley Athletic Center opened its doors four years ago, serving as the “winter home” of the Black Knights. The massive 77,000-square-foot structure not only provides Army’s football team with a state-of-the-art indoor practice facility, but also offers spring teams such as Army baseball and softball another option for preseason training sessions where the teams can train in a climate-controlled environment during the winter months and inclement weather days throughout the year. The facility contains a full 100-yard football 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.

THE UNITED STATES MILITARY ACADEMY


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 second-year cadets. The Cadet Leader Development System seeks to give the cadets increasing responsibility until they are ready to receive their commissions and assume their duties as leaders in today’s Army. Moral and ethical values guide cadets throughout their four years at West Point. Commitment to the Academy’s “Bedrock Values,” based on integrity and respect for the dignity of others, begins on the first day. Integrity is reflected in the Cadet Honor Code which states: “A cadet will not lie, cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do.” Respect denotes that cadets treat others with the same respect and dignity they themselves would expect. At West Point, it is not enough to train leaders—they must be leaders of character. Admission is keenly competitive and is open to young men and women from all states and territories and from every socioeconomic level. Prospective cadets must receive a nomination by a member of Congress or from the Department of the Army. The Academy seeks candidates who possess records of success in academics, athletics and leadership indicative of well-rounded individuals. Although the life of a cadet is demanding, there remains an array of club activities ranging from golf, skiing, boxing, crew and orienteering to such organizations as the cadet radio station, Habitat for Humanity and Big Brothers-Big Sisters. Additionally, the U.S. Corps of Cadets hosts a Special Olympics event each spring. Today’s Military Academy is a vastly different institution from the small academy legislated into being by Congress in 1802. Originally just 1,800 acres, the Academy has grown to more than 16,000 acres. The first graduating class numbered just two men; today’s classes graduate more than 900 new officers annually, both men and women, who are prepared for leadership roles within the Army. With the expansion of knowledge and the changing needs of the United States Army and the nation, life at West Point has changed to keep pace. Ever mindful of its rich heritage, the U.S. Military Academy is developing leaders for tomorrow, and its focus remains the national needs of the 21st century.


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

PETE DAWKINS

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

“In the evening of my memory, always I come back to West Point. Always there echoes and re-echoes ... Duty -- Honor -- Country. Today marks my final roll call with you. But I want you to know, when I cross the river, my last conscious thoughts will be of The Corps ... and The Corps ... and The Corps ...” - GENERAL DOUGLAS MacARTHUR “As I look back on my life, I’ll always revere the opportunities that came along that brought about the choice I made to go to West Point. I just feel that it was fundamental in molding the fabric of my life. The experiences that I had at West Point, they were irreplaceable.” - ASTRONAUT EDWIN “BUZZ” ALDRIN

DOUGLAS MacARTHUR

“You have ahead of you the best of all professions. Being a leader is the best thing you can possibly be and you’re at a school that will make you the best possible leader. West Point is the ring. It’s the foundation of everything I have done.” - HEAD COACH MIKE KRZYZEWSKI “This nation is grateful that four years ago every man and woman graduating today made a life-changing decision. You left the comforts and familiar surroundings of civilian life, and devoted yourselves to one of the noblest professions in a free country--the profession of arms.” - FORMER VICE PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY DICK CHENEY

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

DISTINGUISHED GRADUATES

BORMAN

GRANT

ROBERT E. LEE ’29

The Academy’s ninth Superintendent (1852-55), Lee was a model cadet during his four years at West Point. He graduated second in his class and never earned a single demerit during his four years at the Academy. At the beginning of the Civil War, he was selected to serve as Commanding General of the Army, but instead resigned his commission and was named General-In-Chief of the Confederate Army from 1861 to 1865. Lee’s surrender to Ulysses S. Grant (USMA 1843), at Appomattox Court House, Va., ended the Civil War. Fort Lee, Va., was named in his honor.

ULYSSES S. GRANT ’43

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

GEORGE W. GOETHALS ’80

Goethals became an architect and was builder of the Panama Canal, 1904 TO 1914.

JOHN J. PERSHING ’86

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

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.

Higgs spent last year at South Dakota State University as an assistant coach instructing infield and outfield defense, base running, along with being heavily involved in recruiting. “We are very excited about the arrival of Benet Higgs,” said DePolo. “She comes to West Point with a very diverse softball background, both as a player and coach, enabling her to be very versatile within the program. She is an ardent and diligent student of the game, and should have an immediate impact on the Army softball program.” Prior to her stint at South Dakota State, Higgs spent a year as a student assistant coach at Stephen F. Austin University. She assisted with outfield and hitting instruction as the program captured its first Southland Conference regularseason title since joining the NCAA Division I ranks in 1988. Along with on-field coaching duties, Higgs will work with outfielders and catchers, hitting and base running. She is also involved in recruiting efforts. The 2010 graduate of Stephen F. Austin closed out a stellar career with the Ladyjacks. Appearing in 181 games with 155 starts, Higgs batted .272 over her four-year career (2006-09) with 70 runs scored and 30 RBI. She stroked 25 doubles, eight triples and two home runs, posting a .396 slugging percentage along with 41 stolen bases. A left-handed slapper, Higgs’ speed enabled her not only to reach base, but also to draw extra base hits and stolen bases. She earned All-Southland

Conference honorable mention honors her sophomore year as the Ladyjacks’ center fielder and leadoff batter. Higgs registered a team-high 27 runs, was third with 43 base hits and struck out a team-low 16 times in 175 at bats hitting .246. She led her team in stolen bases (19), while defensively recording 106 putouts and seven assists, compiling a .974 fielding percentage as a center fielder. In spite of suffering a knee injury her junior year, Higgs split time at shortstop and center field while batting .317 and posting career bests in slugging percentage, doubles, triples and RBI in helping lead the Ladyjacks to the program’s first-ever NCAA Division I Tournament appearance in 2008. Though injuries limited her playing time her senior season to just 91 at bats over 36 games, Higgs ranked among the team leaders. She batted .286 with a career high 12 RBI, along with seven doubles. Higgs, who has ties to Texas and the West Coast, has worked and administered a variety of softball camps and clinics across the country. The native of Antioch, Calif., earned a bachelor’s degree in business economics and operations management, and is working towards her master’s degree in economics. Higgs also enjoyed a stellar prep career as a member of the CA Sorcerers softball program and Deer Valley High School where she earned honors as a four-year starter on the diamond and in the classroom. Higgs’ younger brother, Travis, a recent graduate at the University of San Francisco, plays for the Seattle Mariners farm system in Arizona.

2012 ARMY SOFTBALL GUIDE

BENET HIGGS (STEPHEN F. AUSTIN ‘10)


2012 ARMY SOFTBALL GUIDE

2012 SEASON OUTLOOK

A promising young Army softball team put the finishing touches on its fall campaign with a 4-3 win over NCAA Tournament participant Maryland, and head coach Michelle DePolo is looking to build upon that success this spring. After leading Army to a 28-25 record and fourth place in the Patriot League last year, DePolo returns a solid nucleus with six of last year’s top seven batters among its nine returning letterwinners. The Army mentor will look to the senior class to provide leadership, along with a wealth of experience to a 15-member squad comprised of four seniors, a junior, four sophomores and six freshmen. The newcomers will not only provide depth, but are expected to contribute immediately Seniors Alexis AuBuchon and Rachael Duval, the co-captains, along with Clara Navarro, will provide leadership behind the plate and at the corners, respectively, with Reanna Johnson once again providing a veteran presence in the outfield. This group heads into their final season with 447 hits, 209 RBI and 236 runs scored between them. They played an instrumental role leading Army to the Patriot League regular-season title in 2010 en route to setting a school mark with 33 wins. Four Patriot League all-stars dot Army’s roster with three classes represented in seniors AuBuchon (first base) and Johnson (outfield), junior Alex Reynolds (second base) and sophomore Amanda Nguyen (outfield). The latter two earned first-team honors last year, while AuBuchon and Johnson were second-team selections in 2010 and 2009, respectively. With positioned starters returning in the infield and all three outfielders back in the fold, DePolo has reason to be optimistic this season. “I am excited about the team overall,” states the league’s 2010 coach of the year. “We have a great corps of seniors and our offense is well balanced between consistency, power and speed. Though we have a lot of veterans, the team is young. “Our intention three years ago was to be strong up the middle, which we set into place last year and will be more dominant this spring with a veteran presence. Last year we made the switch for middle infield during the spring trip to Florida. April (Ortenzo) and Alex (Reynolds), who are relatively young, were switched to shortstop and second base when we moved Amanda (Nguyen) to left field. In center field we have Reanna (Johnson), who covers a great deal of ground and is capable of throwing out runners attempting to go home.”

Though Army has a wealth of talent in the pitching department, it doesn’t have the benefit of being an experienced staff. That has been the norm rather than the exception the past three years. “We are young once again on the pitching side,” noted DePolo. “We haven’t had veterans to carry the load in my tenure as head coach. Even when I started as an assistant in 2008, we had a pitching staff with almost no experience. Last year we had two freshmen who combined to pitch over 65 percent of our games. “Youth in the circle is nothing that I am not familiar with. Our young staff this season is very promising based on the tremendous job they did in the fall, then continued their development into the off season. “Our three pitchers have different talents, which we will use to our advantage depending upon the situation and what we need for the course of a game, a series, or a weekend.” Army’s young staff will be tested early in the season when the Black Knights compete at the fifth annual Red & Black Showcase hosted by the University of Georgia. The Bulldogs, tabbed the No. 10/12 team in national preseason polls, advanced to the Super Regional round en route to posting 51 wins last year. Army will be part of the field at the Spartan Classic in Norfolk, Va., followed by the Colonial Classic hosted by George Washington prior to making its yearly sojourn to Florida during spring break. It is Army’s toughest season-opening schedule since appearing at the NFCA Leadoff Classic in 2004. “We are looking forward to the opening tournament, and there is no bigger stage than taking on Georgia,” offered DePolo. “It is a great environment to play in, and whatever happens, we will be able to build upon and use going forward. “Our ultimate goal every year is to earn a berth to the Patriot League Tournament, which puts us in the position to win the title and automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. We enjoyed hosting the tournament two years ago, and would like to do so again. That requires winning the regular-season title by focusing on every single pitch, every single plate appearance and every out in every inning.” CATCHERS Senior Rachael Duval returns behind the dish after taking over that position last year. A starter since arriving at the Academy, Duval has played in 161 consecutive games with the first two years at third base


2012 SEASON OUTLOOK

PITCHERS Army will once again sport a young look in its pitching staff with sophomore left-hander Marina Northup the veteran member. She logged 52 innings with 17 appearances, six starts and two completions posting a 4.17 earned run average last year. Freshmen right-handers Morgan Lashley and Julie Steurer are coming off of strong fall performances. An all-state pitcher from North Carolina, Lashley went the distance in Army’s 4-3 win over NCAA Tournament participant Maryland, while Steurer recorded several strong outings highlighted with six straight outs on 16 pitches in a relief role against Howard in closing out the fall slate. Northup brings a solid bat with her to the circle, having filled in as the designated player in several games last year. She hit .333 in eight games at the No. 5 spot, while batting .207 overall in 92 at-bats. The native of San Antonio, Texas, who relies on off speed pitches and control, recorded a pair of wins last year. She went the distance in a 10-3 decision over Rider in the opening game at the Rebel Spring games with all three runs unearned. She posted five strikeouts in a 10-0 five-inning nightcap win in a non-league road sweep of St. Peter’s, and her performance earned her the starting nod in Army’s Patriot League series opener with Holy Cross in its next outing. Northup spent the majority of her 19 games in league play as the DP compiling a .256 batting average, while appearing in just five conference games in Army’s pitching rotation Lashley comes into the program with a plethora of honors playing for North Mecklenburg H.S. She closed out her senior year with a stingy 0.94 ERA compiling a 20-4 record and setting the school strikeout record (309). Lashley was tabbed the district’s pitcher of the year and regional co-pitcher after earning first-team honors in both. Steurer, capable of handling a number of positions when not in the circle, was a three-year starter with her club team (Tuff-n-Tuffer Gold) growing up in Morris Plains, N.J. “All three pitchers have natural ability and will serve vital roles in our lineup,” said DePolo. “Morgan continued to develop through the fall and into the off season. She can place the ball, has great control and spins it impeccably well. She understands her job is to keep players off the bases whether it is a strikeout, groundout or flyout. “Jules is the quintessential utility player. She is a pitcher, catcher, infielder, outfielder and can hit. After a very promising fall and a great deal of work in the off season, Steurer will mainly shoulder pitching

leads with Lashley and Northup. Her drop ball is very strong, but she has a repertoire of pitches to compliment it. She doesn’t give up a lot of long balls, keeps a low pitch count and doesn’t walk them either. “Marina gave us some very solid innings last year,” continued DePolo, “and has improved a great deal since then. She has added pitches to her arsenal and looks better by the day. I look forward to seeing her effectiveness in games this season. As a lefty with a different delivery, she has tremendous off speed and control.” Army has the offense and defense to support its pitching, and that combination, along with the talent of the veterans and newcomers, makes the Black Knights a formidable foe. INFIELD The infield is strong this season with all four starters back starting with senior co-captain Alexis AuBuchon at first base. Junior Alex Reynolds and sophomore April Ortenzo at second base and shortstop, respectively, will once again handle the middle of the infield. Senior Clara Navarro, a defensive specialist who filled in at third base in 32 games last year, provides Army with flexibility. She is capable of contributing in any field position having also drawn duty at second base, shortstop and outfield over her first three years. Head coach Michelle DePolo shifted the middle infield last year during the spring trip to Florida. She switched freshman Amanda Nguyen to left field, moved Reynolds from shortstop to second base and Ortenzo from third base to shortstop, while bringing in Navarro at third. Reynolds and Nguyen went on to earn first-team all-star honors at their positions in 2011. “When we moved Amanda to the outfield, we needed to fill an infield spot, so we switched April to shortstop,” explained DePolo. “She has a tremendous amount of range and makes challenging plays with ease and clutch plays with a clean demeanor. The switch to the other side of the diamond was quite an adjustment, but she showed maturity and mental toughness with the move.” Ortenzo’s 36 runs batted in and 53 hits list second and ninth, respectively, on Army’s single-season chart, and she was one of the team’s top run producers with 32 batting at the No. 2 spot in the lineup. Reynolds not only complimented Ortenzo up the middle, but followed her last year in the lineup where she ranked second on the team batting

before taking over catching duties. The Army co-captain brings much needed veteran leadership behind the plate as the receiver for a young pitching staff that includes two freshmen and a sophomore. Duval is also a dangerous threat in the middle of the Black Knights’ batting order. Last year she tied for the lead in doubles (13), was second in runs (32) and ranked among the RBI leaders (26) batting .245. “Rachael is hands down one of the top defensive catchers in the league,” stated DePolo. “She blocked an incredible amount of balls and wild pitches last year, saving us many times. She is very smart and takes command of whatever pitcher is in the circle and does an excellent job. She will be asked to do so again with three young pitchers who have different styles.” In addition to working with the pitching staff, Duval has been helping newcomer Rae Anne Payleitner into the collegiate game teaching her how to control the tempo behind the plate. Payleitner, an all-state catcher from Illinois, played fall ball but did not catch, and is working hard after recovering from an injury that limited her from practicing early in the off season. A power hitter who can send the ball deep into the alleys, Payleitner will be competing for the designated player role as well as taking turns in the lineup as a pinch hitter in key situations.


2012 ARMY SOFTBALL GUIDE

2012 SEASON OUTLOOK .310, stroking 10 doubles, one triple, six home runs, scored 29 runs, and set an Army single-season record with 45 RBI. The double-play combination of Reynolds and Ortenzo led to the Black Knights being ranked 21st (0.42) last spring. On the corners are AuBuchon at first base with Navarro in the hunt for third base. AuBuchon opens her fourth season holding down first base. A 2010 second team league all-star and all-tournament team selection, AuBuchon led Army in batting her freshman and sophomore years, and ranked among its leaders last year. Listed on Army’s career chart in doubles (40), batting average (.335), RBI (73), total bases (222) and walks (48), AuBuchon is looking for a productive senior year. Vying with Navarro for third base is freshman Alex Gaff, who split duties with her in the fall, along with AuBuchon at first base. Gaff batted .365 in high school and brings a strong bat and power to the plate. OUTFIELD Army returns starters Reanna Johnson (center field), sophomore Amanda Nguyen (left field) and sophomore Meghan McGowan, who assumed the lead in right field at season’s end last spring. Defensively, all three have speed to track the ball, arm strength and accuracy, and are solid contact hitters offensively. Nguyen, a first-team all-league and all-tournament selection, is coming off a prolific freshman season that saw her shatter Army’s single-season records for hits (70), runs (41) and stolen bases (27), while tied for eighth in batting average (.383). The slap-hitting speedster and Army’s leadoff batter in 2011 ranked among the league’s leaders in all four categories. “Amanda worked hard during the offseason slapping with power and placement, along with hitting from the left side,” said DePolo. “This year when teams move in on her, she will place the ball over their heads. We just need Amanda to continue to get on base, and we are perfecting several ways to do that, but it is a matter of what the defense does. “If the opponents make one wrong move, she will capitalize. She is our table setter and knows her role is to get on base. Defensively, left field seems to fit her best.” Johnson, who earned all-league honors as a freshman, ranks among the league’s top returning outfielders. Heading into her third season in center field, she covers a great deal of ground and has a powerful arm that is capable of throwing out runners heading home. The fleet footed outfielder is a dangerous threat on the bases where she is tied for 10th place on Army’s career chart with 27 steals, sharing that spot with Nguyen. The first two years, Johnson batted close to .300 but slipped to .215 last year. However, she hit .241 in conference games, and moved into the cleanup role during the fall. “Though taking time to develop offensively, Reanna is the epitome defensive player,” stated the Army mentor. “She typifies the way you want players to develop over the course of their four years. Reanna was good as a freshman and became better each year. If there is going to be a close play at the plate when we are on defense, I want the ball to go to Reanna.” McGowan shared right field duties last year and manned the job late in the season when Natalia Gruenbaum was injured. She batted .225 in the lower half of the lineup and will be in thick of battle once again. Competition will be heated throughout the spring with sophomore Marina Northup, McGowan and newcomer Ali Cleinmark vying for right field after drawing duty during the fall. At the start of the season, they will likely play that position on a committee basis. Northup has a solid bat and could draw several turns in the outfield when not pitching. A natural lefty hitter who throws right, Cleinmark went 2-for-3 against NCAA participant Maryland during the fall. She is

strong and hits for power and keeps the defense on its toes with bunts and slap. Freshman Ashton Wolf brings a different set of intangibles as a pinch runner with speed similar to Nguyen. All four give DePolo options in the lineup as left-handed batters who can cause problems for the defense whether it be hitting, running or stealing. SCHEDULE Army’s schedule is tough and heavy early on, and DePolo is hoping that the stiff competition will prepare her young team for the Patriot League. The Black Knights host Holy Cross (March 31 and 1 April) in their league debut, then take to the road the next two weekends to take on regular-season champion Colgate (April 7-8) followed by Bucknell (April 14-15). The Black Knights host Lafayette (April 21-22) and defending champion Lehigh (April 28-29) in closing out their regular-season league slate. Army took three games from the Mountain Hawks in their last visit to West Point in 2010. After splitting the regular-season series, the host and top seeded Black Knights eliminated Lehigh at the tournament. “It is almost like a new season when we start conference play,” noted DePolo. “The league is going to be very similar to last year’s layout. Colgate has strong pitching, Lehigh is always the team to beat, while Holy Cross, Lafayette and Bucknell have stepped up the past two years and will be tough contenders.” Army’s four seniors will be looking to lead a young squad to the league’s regular-season title and tournament host as the top seed in its bid to vie for the automatic NCAA berth awarded to the winner. The last time Army won the league title and trip to the NCAAs was in 2002 with a team that consisted of seven seniors, no juniors, and 14 underclassmen.

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.

Lehigh became the first Patriot League team since 2003 to win a game in the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision playoffs when it won at Northern Iowa, 14-7, in the first round. The Mountain Hawks finished at No. 14 in each of the major FCS rankings, matching the highest for a Patriot League team since 2003.

Army’s Jeremy Boltus was one of five finalists for the Tewaarton Trophy, given to the top men’s lacrosse player.

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.

Bucknell and Colgate each finished in the top 15 of the final Nike/Inside Lacrosse poll, with the Bison at No. 9 and the Raiders coming in at No. 14.

During the 2010-11 academic year, Patriot League student-athletes and teams have accomplished the following:

Lehigh’s Lauren Dykstra capped an amazing career as a women’s lacrosse All-American and MVP of the IWLCA North-South Senior All-Star Game, as well as the Patriot League Female Sportsmanship Award winner.

Patriot League schools came in with glowing marks in the latest release of the NCAA Academic Progress Rate, as 97 percent of Patriot League teams came in at or above the national Division I four-year average score of 970.

Sophomores C.J. McCollum (Lehigh) and Mike Muscala (Bucknell) each received postseason All-America recognition following strong men’s basketball seasons.

Bucknell claimed the Patriot League Presidents’ Cup for the 17th time overall and sixth consecutive season. The Bison also won their eighth male trophy and 17th female award, sweeping the honors for the second straight year and seventh time overall.

Three Patriot Leaguers competed at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, with Bucknell’s Ted Heitzman and Army’s Domonick Sylve giving the League a pair of All-America recipients for the first time since 2003.

The Navy trio of Olaf Olson, Mark Meyer and Justin Vagts all competed at the NCAA Men’s Swimming and Diving Championship.

A Patriot League record four runners went to the NCAA Cross Country Championships, with Colgate’s Elise DeRoo earning a top-100 finish in the women’s race.

Four Patriot League baseball players were selected in the MLB First-Year Player Draft, including Holy Cross pitcher John Pedrotty in the 13th round.

Army’s Ben Koenigsfeld was named a semifinalist for the Olerud Award as the collegiate baseball Two-Way Player of the Year in addition to a long list of athletic and academic accomplishments.

Ten Patriot Leaguers, including nine from Lehigh, were named Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Scholars as student-athletes of color who exemplify high standards in academics, athletics, and service to the community.

Six different schools claimed multiple Patriot League titles, led by Navy with seven and Bucknell with six. Lehigh and Army each won three championships while Colgate and American claimed a pair.

Bucknell’s Travis Nissley was named a finalist for the Campbell Trophy and earned an $18,000 post-graduate scholarship from the National Football Foundation.

Navy tennis standout Nick Birger was part of a select group of studentathletes to receive a $7,500 postgraduate scholarship from the NCAA.

Army’s Erin Anthony concluded an outstanding career with First-Team Academic All-America recognition for the second year in a row and a nomination from the Patriot League for the NCAA Woman of the Year award.

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.

11 student-athletes have been named Capital One/CoSIDA Academic AllAmericans, including: Erin Anthony, Army (Women’s Basketball); Nathan Hedgecock, Army (Men’s Basketball); Travis Nissley, Bucknell (Football); Sam Miller and Alex Foskett, Navy (Men’s Soccer); Ben Koenigsfeld, Army (Baseball); Jay Laing, Army and Jonathan Stumpf, Lehigh (Men’s Lacrosse); Nick Birger, Navy (Men’s Tennis); Alyssa DeLorenz, Bucknell (Women’s Lacrosse) and Cody Rome, Navy (Men’s Track and Field) 55 Patriot League student-athletes have earned Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-District honors, with 39 on the first team.

2012 ARMY SOFTBALL GUIDE

HISTORY 1979: Under coach Dennis Helsel, Army enters into its first year of varsity competition in the spring after spending the first two years at the club level. The team registers a 14-9 mark and reaches the finals of the New York State AIAW Tournament. Lori Utchel leads the team in batting with a .474 average as Army finishes the season batting .333 with eight players hitting .300 or better and three hitting .400 or above. Utchel, a shortstop, leads the team in hits (36), batting average and RBIs (24) and shares it in doubles (6) and home runs. Pitcher Karen Hinsey compiles a 9-4 mark registering a 2.63 ERA.

1979 Team 1980: The Black Knights finish 10-7 in what turns out to be Dennis Helsel’s final year on the bench. Lori Utchel tops the team in batting for the second straight year and her .537 average is still the school’s all-time mark. Kim Hall, the first women’s basketball player to score 1,000 points, is next at .424. 1981: Liz Cousins, the head coach of the women’s basketball team, was planning to wear two hats when she was named to succeed Helsel, but the conflict of schedules brought in Lorraine Quinn as head coach just prior to the start of spring practice. Though dropping seven straight games early in the schedule, Army just misses compiling a winning season in finishing 9-11. Catcher Maria Stangle leads the team in batting with a .442 average and is the leader in triples (4), stolen bases (5) and walks. Team captain Lori Utchel is second at .435 along with leading the team in hits (27), doubles (10) and RBIs (19). 1982: Under interim head coach Suzi Horne, filling in for Lorraine Quinn, Army suffers through its second straight losing campaign. The five wins proves the fewest in school history. Outfielder Louise Chrisman bats .417 with a team-high 25 hits and 18 RBIs. Jenni Moehringer, who also played basketball with Chrisman, follows with a .308 average. Peggy Laneri registers a 2.22 ERA. 1983: Lorraine Quinn returns to the squad for her second season. Louise Chrisman leads the team in batting (.371) and hits (25) with Sue Miguel, who also stared in basketball, next at .313 as Army finishes under .500 for the third straight year. Lori Stocker registers a 1.55 ERA and Jill Schurtz is the mound workhorse with 72 innings for a 1.75 ERA. 1984: Army’s first year in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) and under Harold Johnson, who is also the women’s basketball coach, finds the Black Knights on the winning side of the ledger for the first time in four years. Army finishes 18-14 and qualifies for the MAAC Tournament behind the pitching of Jill

Schurtz. She registers a 1.51 ERA and is named to the All-MAAC team. Louise Chrisman tops Army for the third straight year in batting (.350) behind a teamhigh 35 hits, 16 RBIs and three triples. 1985: Army finishes fourth at the MAAC Tournament in Harold Johnson’s final year at the helm. Brandt Kinder and Jill Simon are named to the All-MAAC tournament team. Bridget Arens leads the team with a .358 batting average and Chris Heberle is first in hits with 21. Bernie McLaughlin tops Army in extra base hits with seven, to include a pair of home runs, along with nine RBIs. 1986: Al Arceo, an assistant to Harold Johnson, takes over the helm and goes on to build the program into a Division II Eastern power. His Black Knights rank as high as 19th nationally, set a school mark for wins (27-7) and capture the MAAC title. Army wins its final 14 games, sets a USMA mark for shutouts (14), ties the record for fewest losses (7) and posts the best winning percentage of 79 percent. Andee Hidalgo is named the MVP of the MAAC tournament, and Jill Schurtz sets school records for strikeouts (62), ERA (0.90), consecutive wins (7), shutouts (8) and overall mark (14-4). Trese LaCamera posts a 9-3 mark and 1.22 ERA as Army’s pitching staff records a run of 42 c o n s e c u t i ve scoreless innings en route to a team 0.93 ERA . Bernie McLaughlin’s 36 hits ties the school record. She is also the leader in RBIs (21), triples Jill Schurtz (6) and total bases (57). 1987: Army finishes runner-up at the MAAC Tournament and earns a postseason bid as the No. 2 seed in the ECAC South Division II playoffs.

ARMY AT THE NCAA TOURNAMENT

Army softball laid down a solid foundation for building its own dynasty in the new millennium with a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances in the first three years. The Black Knights wrapped up the 2000 campaign with their first-ever invitation to the NCAA Championships after winning the Patriot League title and its automatic bid. Army drew one of the toughest regional assignments in the country, traveling to Seattle, Wash., to take on the No. 1 ranked Washington Huskies in the West Region. Sixth-seeded Army battled valiantly, but a three-run homer in the bottom of the third inning powered the Huskies to a 5-0 victory over the Black Knights in the program’s first NCAA game. Playing error-free ball, Army threatened in the top of the fifth inning when Chrissy O’Hara ripped a single down the right field line and advanced to second on a groundout. She was stranded at third after advancing on an illegal pitch. Army threw a scare at No. 5-seed Tennessee-Chattanooga in a losers’ bracket game that went into extra innings before suffering a heart-wrenching 6-4 loss in nine innings. The Black Knights took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second, keyed by Jen Knowlden’s double off the left field wall. Knowlden advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt and raced home on an error for Army’s first run in an NCAA game. The Lady Mocs rallied with three runs in the top of the third to pull ahead 3-1. Army cut the deficit to one in the bottom of the fourth on Knowlden’s solo homer, then tied the game in the sixth on Bianca Brito’s RBI double. The Lady Mocs pulled ahead 4-3 in the top of the eighth, but the Black Knights tied it in the bottom of that frame on Nicki Robbins’ home run. UTC broke the game open with two runs in the top of the ninth and Army appeared poised to make a run in the home half, but a double play ended the game and season for the Black Knights. Knowlden, who was 3-for-3 with an RBI and two runs against UTC, was named to the West Region all-tournament team. Two years later, another Patriot League title catapulted the Black Knights once again into the NCAA Tournament. Army’s second trip to the Regionals took them to Norman, Okla., as the No. 6 seed in Region 5. Army fell to top-seeded Texas, 4-0, in the opening round at the Region 5 Tournament. The Black Knights rebounded in the losers’ bracket with a 2-0 upset over Utah for their first-ever NCAA win. Shauna Evans threw a three-hit shutout, with Nicki Robbins and Lisa Huntington singling and doubling home Army’s two runs. The Black Knights put together another stellar effort in their next game in the double-elimination tournament, but their rally fell short in going down in a 2-0 elimination loss to Arkansas (see pages 59 and 60 for boxscores of all five of Army’s NCAA games).


2002 NCAA TOURNAMENT

Army’s second trip to the NCAA Regionals in three years resulted in the first-ever softball win in Black Knight history and just the second by a Patriot League school. It was also Army’s first NCAA women’s tournament win at the Division I level. Earning a trip to the Midwest and the Region 5 Tournament in Norman, Okla., the sixth-seeded Black Knights capped a 31-19-1 season with a 2-0 elimination-game defeat of No. 5 Utah before bowing out of the tourney with a 2-0 defeat at the hands of No. 4 Arkansas. The underdog Black Knights battled evenly with top-seed Texas before ultimately losing 4-0 in the opening contest. Army kept the No. 10-ranked Longhorns, led by pitcher Cat Osterman, off the scoreboard for three innings before errors proved detrimental. Army rebounded behind Shauna Evans’ three-hit shutout along with timely late-inning hits that produced a pair of runs to chase Utah, the Mountain West Conference champions. The Black Knights’ bats came alive in the sixth inning with three hits coming from the top of the order in producing a pair of runs behind Nicki Robbins’ run-scoring single and Lisa Huntington’s RBI double. The Black Knights (31-19-1) threw a scare at Arkansas before being eliminated. After being held to just two hits over the first six frames, Army led off the seventh with back-to-back singles by Robbins and Huntington. The Razorbacks nixed that threat to hold onto the 2-0 shutout victory. Army’s 31 season wins set a school record at the Division I level, breaking the former mark of 29 set in 2000. It is also the second-highest victory total in school history, trailing the mark of 33 set in 1988.

2002 NCAA TOURNAMENT RECAP


2012 ARMY SOFTBALL GUIDE

2000 NCAA TOURNAMENT 2000 NCAA TOURNAMENT RECAP Army lived up to its billing as the preseason Patriot League favorite in its 12-10 defeat of Lehigh for the conference title and its first-ever NCAA bid. The Black Knights’ initial trip to the NCAA Regionals took them out West to Seattle, Wash., where they drew the nation’s top-ranked team in Washington. Seeded sixth in the West Region, the Black Knights turned in an impressive showing despite losing 5-0 to a Huskies squad that had beaten 13 Top-25 teams by larger margins. Playing error-free ball, Army threatened in the top of the fifth inning, but the runner was stranded at third. In the next round of the double-elimination tournament, Army battled No. 5 seed Tennessee-Chattanooga to nine innings before going down to a 6-4 defeat. The Black Knights jumped on the scoreboard first when Jen Knowlden, who doubled, scored on an error. The Lady Mocs rallied with three runs in the top of the third for a 3-1 lead, but Army cut the deficit to one in the home half of the fourth on Knowlden’s solo home run over the left centerfield fence, then tied the game in the sixth when Sarah Thornton scored on Bianca Brito’s sacrifice hit. After Chattanooga pulled ahead 4-3 in the top of the eighth, Army retied it in the home half on Nicki Robbins’ home run. UTC answered with a pair of runs in the top of the ninth, then turned a double play to nip Army’s rally. Knowlden, who boasted a 1.400 slugging percentage in going 3-for-5 in the tournament, including a 3-for-3 showing versus UTC, was among the 11 players named to the NCAA all-Regional field.

Army’s softball team falls in line with the rest of West Point’s varsity sports when it comes to visibility in the community. The Black Knights take great pride in reaching out to youth as well as serving as role models. Army is very active in the community, hosting local youth in the Hudson Valley and the surrounding area for several years with a clinic at the Army Softball Complex. Army was on hand for face painting at Black Knights Alley, a family fun zone prior to every home Army football game, while holding a clinic in celebration of Women Sports Day at West Point.

... IN THE COMMUNITY

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