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

ARMY SWIMMING & DIVING 2013-14

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.

DISTINGUISHED ALUMNI

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.

HAIG DOUGLAS MACARTHUR ’03 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). 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.

KIMBROUGH

KIMSEY

DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER ’15 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). 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.

SCHWARZKOPF

H. NORMAN SCHWARZKOPF ’56 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. 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.

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. An array of over 40 majors in the academic program 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.

ATHLETE OPPORTUNITIES CENTER FOR ENHANCED PERFORMANCE The Center for Enhanced Performance (CEP) is a state of the art facility committed to developing the full potential of each cadet through comprehensive mental toughness 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 Army at large. The Performance Enhancement Program (PEP) is the nation’s most comprehensive training program for learning, practicing and mastering the intangible mental skills that underlie human performance; confidence despite setbacks, concentration amidst distractions, and composure under stress. Cadets participate in individual training sessions during free periods in their academic schedule, learning, and then applying the skills of imagery, attention control, energy management, and goal setting. Biofeedback training allows cadets to learn crucial self-regulation techniques, and sophisticated audio and video simulations of game and practice situations are used 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 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.

WORLD CLASS ATHLETE PROGRAM While the Center for Enhanced Performance helps West Point student-athletes succeed in the classroom, the World Class Athlete Program provides outstanding soldierathletes the support and training to compete and succeed in national and international competitions to include the Olympic Games, while maintaining a professional military career and promoting the U.S. Army to the world. WCAP offers all graduates of West Point the same opportunity for selection. All soldiers must be in good military standing. All West Point graduates must have completed their branch Officer Basic Course. Soldiers applying for the program must demonstrate the ability to maintain a high national ranking in their specific sport. If selected to be a WCAP member after graduating from West Point, your Army objective will be to train to make the Olympic Team. Qualifiers of the World Class Athlete Program receive exceptional training from some of the finest coaches and trainers in the country. A total of 95 soldiers were assigned to WCAP to train for the 2000 Olympic Games and 2002 Winter Olympics. Of the 77 training for the Summer Games, 53 qualified for the Olympic Trials. Three athletes made the Olympic team, while four more were named alternates. Sixteen of the 18 athletes training for the 2002 Winter Olympics qualified for the Olympic Trials. Nine of those people advanced to the Olympic Games, while two qualified as alternates. WCAP athletes earned three medals, one gold and two bronze.

Since 1948, over 400 Army soldier-athletes have been selected to either an American summer or winter Olympic team, earning 102 medals overall. Recent WCAP accomplishments include: 2004 Fifteen WCAP members qualified for the Olympic Trials. Dremial Byers, Tina George and Faruk Sahin all won individual titles at the U.S. Open, while Oscar Wood qualified for the Athens Olympic Games. 2002 Glenn Nieradka, Keith Sieracki, Dremiel Byers and Iris Smith won their respective weight classes to lead the All-Army wrestling team to its second consecutive Greco-Roman crown at the U.S. National Wrestling Championships. 2000 Six freestyle and 11 Greco Roman WCAP wrestlers qualified for finals of Olympic Trials. 1999 WCAP athletes won 156 medals in national and international championships. 1998 At the Winter Olympic Games, nine soldiers made the U.S. Olympic team. 1996 60 soldiers qualified for the U.S. Olympic Trials, 15 made the U.S. Olympic team.


CRANDALL POOL/ARMY DIVING Thanks to some renovations over the years, Army’s Crandall Pool is still considered one of the top venues on the East Coast. Since its completion in 1970, the pool has been the site of state, regional and national events, most notably the 1972 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships and the 1971 National AAU Indoor Diving Championships. Also among the best is the diving facility, which includes two one-meter and two three-meter springboards, as well as 6.5 and 10-meter platforms. They are located in a separate diving area, permitting simultaneous swimming and diving training. The diving facilities also include a dry board and a trampoline for dryland dive training. The electronic timing system can also calculate divers’ scores based on the judges’ scores and degree of difficulty. In 1995-96, the facility received a $10-million facelift. Included in the modifications were new men’s and women’s locker rooms, renovated storage and office areas, and a new heating and filtration system in the pool. The 1972 Men’s and 1976 Women’s Olympic teams selected West Point as the official training site before departing for Munich and Montreal, respectively. Army has served as host for both the Eastern Seaboard Swimming and Diving Championships and the Patriot League Championships. Most recently, the 2000 Patriot League Championships and the 2001 EISL Championships were held at West Point. Crandall Pool has also played host to other special events. Of recent note was the German National Swimming Team’s visit to West Point for training prior to the 1998 Goodwill Games on Long Island, N.Y. Crandall Pool was named in memory of Robert W. Crandall, USMA ’39, the captain of the 1938-39 Army swimming team who was killed in battle in Italy in World War II. Suitable for long- and short-course training, the pool is a six-lane, 50-meter course which can be divided by a submergible bulkhead into an eight-lane, 25-yard competition pool and a six-lane practice pool. The overall depth is not less than eight-feet, making for a very fast pool. The facility has a seating capacity of 1,210 and has an excellent view of the finish and scoreboard. There is also a fully electronic timing and judging system.

Army Diving

Army Diving strives to have each cadet-athlete fulfill his or her potential and reach the pinnacle of the Division I level through rigorous training and the utilization of a top-notch facility at Crandall Pool. Divers at USMA make use of two one- and three-meter springboards, a 6.5-meter platform, a 10-meter platform, dryboard, trampoline, spotting belts and TiVo. The daily schedule of an Army diver is a productive one, with six days of training each week. Nonetheless, the demands of the classroom at West Point are still met and surpassed by everyone who is a part of the program. Army diving trains every day during the week as well as Saturday, with Sundays off. During the course of the whole year, the Army diving team will use all the tools in its possession in order to peak for Navy and for Patriots. As with all cadets at West Point, the diving team works hard each and every day and strives to meet every challenge they face, both on the boards and in the classroom. Army divers are an indispensable part of the Army swimming and diving program. Interaction and reliance on the swimmers as teammates is an important part of the life of any Army diver. Together, swimmers and divers share the same daily challenges, make the same sacrifices, and have the same ultimate goal – win championships and BEAT NAVY!

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS BOO CORRIGAN Boo Corrigan was named the Academy’s director of athletics on Feb. 1, 2011. “We have an opportunity to work every day with a truly exceptional group of young people,” Corrigan said. “The opportunities they receive through intercollegiate athletics will help shape their own leadership styles as they become officers in the U.S. Army. We have a great team that focuses daily on our cadetathletes. We strive to enhance their overall experience as they develop into the leaders our nation needs.” In his short time as athletic director, Corrigan has strengthened and expanded Army Athletics’ relationships in several key areas. In his tenure, Army has secured a new apparel agreement with Nike, a new pouring rights contract with Coke and bringing in the Aspire Group to enhance ticket sales and better serve Army season ticket holders. Corrigan also crafted the Team Army concept, a comprehensive plan designed to add significant value to Army’s corporate sponsorships while maintaining the tradition of West Point Athletics. Corrigan, who has a proven record as a fundraiser, spearheaded changes in the Army A Club and ticket operations that have resulted in more than $20 million dollars in major gifts and record-setting annual giving during his tenure. During that time the funding for a new lacrosse facility, that is scheduled to break ground, was secured. In addition to his role in enhancing revenues for Army Athletics, Corrigan led a strategic planning process that developed a new mission statement and goals for the department. In his first full two years at West Point, Corrigan has overseen a program that owns eight Patriot League regular season or tournament championships and sent eight teams to the NCAA postseason (rifle). Thirty-three cadets have earned a major award from their conference,. In 2012-13 alone, Army accounted for more than

100 all-league citations. Hockey’s Cheyne Rocha and lacrosse’s Brendan Buckley each captured the Senior CLASS Award in their respective sports, making Army the only school in the nation to have multiple winners in 2012-13. The 2012-13 season was one of the most successful in recent memory on the fields of friendly strife. Army teams combined to post an overall record of 236-183-8. The program’s .562 winning percentage was the highest in eight years. The winter sports programs had their best season in five years as the women’s basketball team won the Patriot League regular season title, the men’s basketball team posted its first winning season in 28 years and the rifle squad advanced to the NCAA Championships for the 10th consecutive season. It was also a great year in the competition against fellow service academies. Army split the season series versus Navy, 16-16-1, marking the best winning percentage against the Mids (.500) since 2004-05. The Black Knights owned a 4-2-1 record against Air Force, improving the record to 20-18-2 (.525) versus service academy foes in 2012-13. Cadet-athletes have continued to thrive in the classroom under Corrigan’s watch. In his two full years, Army has boasted seven Academic AllAmericans, including six first-team selections. Lacrosse’s Brendan Buckely became the first Army athlete to capture Academic All-American of the Year honors in 2012. In 2011, the Black Knights’ football team boasted two first-team CoSIDA Academic All-Americans, a first for the program since 1957. Since the start of the 2011-12 season, Army boasts six Patriot League Scholar-Athletes of the Year, including Buckley, a two-time overall men’s winner. Twenty of Army’s 24 NCAA programs scored above the national average in the 2013 NCAA APR report. The men’s cross country and wrestling teams earned public recognition for finishing in the top 10 percent of their respective sport. The cross country squad boasted a perfect score of 1,000. In addition, former football standout Andrew Rodriguez, Class of 2012, became the first Army player to win the National Football Foundation’s Willam V. Campbell Trophy, which is presented annually to the nation’s top football scholarathlete. Rodriguez later was honored with the Amateur Athletic Union’s James E. Sullivan Award as the top amateur athlete in the country. He was the first Army player to receive the award since 1946 and was just the third player in history (Peyton Manning, Tim Tebow) to win both the Campbell Trophy and Sullivan Award. Army has been the focus of national attention since Corrigan’s arrival. He was instrumental in supporting the CBS documentary, “Game of Honor,” that chronicled the Black Knights’ 2011 football season leading up to its annual showdown with arch-rival Navy. Not only was the two-hour program broadcast to a national audience on Showtime, but also won the Emmy Award for Best Sports Documentary. The Army football team was also the focus of a behindthe-scenes book titled, “Soldiers First,” written by New York Times writer Joe Drape. Corrigan has also made his mark on the

aesthetics of historic Michie Stadium. In order to upgrade the appearance and provide a better experience for Army fans, Corrigan implemented a Michie Stadium branding and signage campaign that began in 2011. The first phase of the project was completed prior to the 2012 season. In addition to his duties at West Point, Corrigan has been an active leader in the Patriot League, serving as chairman of the conference’s Broadband Committee. Corrigan, who was the senior associate athletic director for external affairs at Duke University starting in August 2008, brings a wealth of leadership to his post. He is a proven administrator with 18 previous years of experience in all areas of revenue generation, external affairs, staff management and leadership. Corrigan’s chief responsibilities at Duke included the oversight of the Blue Devil corporate partnerships and the Marketing, Promotions, Ticket, Internet Operations, Sports Information and Video Services departments. In only two years at Duke, Corrigan was responsible for the negotiation of multi-media rights to ISP. A supervisor of the 2009 NCAA Champion women’s tennis and 2010 NCAA Champion men’s lacrosse programs, Corrigan was a part of three NCAA Championships at Duke in just two seasons. He is currently a member of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Rules committee and the Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Lacrosse Committee, while serving on the Executive Budget Committee at Duke. Prior to arriving at Duke in August of 2008, he oversaw Notre Dame’s corporate relations and marketing as an associate athletic director for five years. During his stint at Notre Dame, Corrigan spearheaded the redesign of its official athletics website and creation of 15-20 hours of original video content weekly. That resulted in a 35 percent increase in page views and unique users. Corrigan also worked directly with ISP Sports, CSTV, and NBC Sports from a sales and marketing standpoint. Before joining the staff at Notre Dame, Corrigan spent nearly three years as the associate athletic director for marketing at the United States Naval Academy. He was responsible for turning the marketing department from a deficit to profit in his first year with full budget responsibility for the department. Corrigan also was intimately involved with the re-branding of the Annual Giving Campaign (The Blue and Gold), which led to an increase of 75 percent year over year donations. His collegiate experience also includes a stint as assistant director of marketing at Florida State from 1992-95. Corrigan is a 1990 University of Notre Dame graduate with a degree in economics. He is married to the former Kristen Aceto, a former field hockey and lacrosse player at the University of Virginia who also earned a master’s degree from the school. The couple has three children, Finley, Tre and Brian. He is the youngest of seven children of Gene and Lena Corrigan.

HEAD COACH MICKEY WENDER MICKEY WENDER

HEAD COACH • EIGHTH SEASON VERMONT ’89 tinued Anderson. “We feel Mickey will serve as an outstanding d role l model d l ffor our cadet-athletes, d hl providing them the best experience possible.”

While Michael Phelps and the rest of the world were making swimming history in Beijing at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, Army head coach Mickey Wender was there making his own mark. Appointed head coach of the American Samoa swimming contingent for the games, he and rising Black Knight junior Stewart Glenister, whose parents are native to the small island in the South Pacific, made the trip to the Far East to compete against the best athletes in the world on the grandest stage the sport has to offer. Under Wender’s watchful eye, Glenister swam to first place in his heat of the 50-meter freestyle, while setting an American Samoan national record in the process. Wender was also able to soak up as much of the Olympic experience as he could to bring back to the West Point pool deck at Crandall Pool. The ninth head coach in the 91-year history of the men’s program and the sixth women’s coach in the program’s 33-year history, Wender enters his eighth year at West Point after seven seasons as the head of the swimming & diving program at the University of Washington where he authored an impressive dual meet record of 154-58. Upon his hiring in 2006, former Army Director of Athletics Kevin Anderson stated, “We are very excited to announce the hiring of Mickey Wender as the next men’s and women’s swimming and diving coach at the United States Military Academy. He has excelled at the highest level of his field, helping to develop countless All-Americans over the years in one of the most competitive swimming conferences in the country. We are very fortunate to have attracted someone of the quality of Mickey Wender to lead our program. “Complementing his vast success in the pool, Wender brings an impressive record of leadership development that has remained constant throughout his illustrious coaching career,” con-

In his first season with the Black Knights, Wender was named Patriot League Coach of the Year after leading the men’s program to second place at the conference championship meet with the team’s highest point total since Army won the meet in 2001. He also guided the women to a fourth-place outcome as 11 total members of the two teams earned All-Patriot League recognition. Wender then directed the men’s team to a second-place finish at the USA Swimming Championships while two of his swimmers – Zach Disbrow ’07 and Jake Mentele ’08 – registered qualifying times for the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials. Twenty-one members of the team either earned a spot or moved up on Army’s all-time top-10 performance lists, with nearly 95 percent of the roster achieving personal bests in their primary events. Mentele followed in Disbrow’s footsteps in 2008, bringing home Male Swimmer of the Meet honors at the Patriot League Championships after winning individual titles in the 100 and 200 breaststrokes as well as the 200 IM. “I was so proud of what both teams accomplished in my first two seasons,” stated Wender. “We grew a lot since first meeting after I took over, as individuals, as a team and as a coaching staff. I’m really pleased with the foundation that group laid for the Army swimming program and what we plan to achieve in the future.”

2007 Men’s Coach of the Year nationals on the strength of five NCAA qualifiers, nat including Phil Davis, a Pac-10 Champion and conference record holder in the 200 breaststroke. It was the men’s team’s highest finish at the NCAA Championships in more than 30 years. The women’s team sent four swimmers to the 2003 NCAA Championships and placed 19th for the highest national finish since swimming became an NCAA sponsored sport in 1982. Kim Harada, who coached with Wender for three years at Washington and two years at Army, recorded two fourth-place finishes in the 50 and 100 freestyle events to earn All-America honors. She also earned honorable mention honors in the 200 freestyle relay along with teammates Annette Vayo, Melody Staubitz and Sharon Olson. Wender’s swimmers not only achieved success in the pool, but were just as impressive in the classroom. Ten Huskies were named to the Pac-10 All-Academic squad during the 2001-02 season, including David Moilanen who was a first team Academic All-American, a Rhodes Scholar finalist and the school record holder in the 100 backstroke. Wender’s swimmers were honored with postseason awards at the conference and national level for four consecutive years. Five men and seven women were named to the Pac-10 AllAcademic team in 2005. His teams also garnered awards for community service, academics and school spirit. “I was honored and humbled to have been selected the next swimming and diving team coach at the United States Military Academy,” said Wender. “I really felt that coming to West Point was a perfect fit for my family and me. It has always been a dream of mine to serve my country, and to be

HEAD COACH MICKEY WENDER “West Point is a special place for special people and I can’t begin to explain what an honor it is to live and work here. It is an amazing opportunity to coach the best and the brightest in our country has to offer and I feel very fortunate to serve those who serve the United States. “The athletes I work with are the most committed, hard-working people I’ve ever known. I have the unique privilege of coaching people who I look up to, admire and respect. My family and I are very lucky to be a part of it all.” - Mickey Wender

DIVING COACH EIGHTH SEASON OHIO UNIVERSITY ’91

With over 17 years of competitive diving coaching experience, Ron Kontura, begins his seventh year as diving coach at West Point Kontura was named Patriot League Diving Coach of the Year in 2010 and 2011 thanks in large part to the emergence of Chris Nguyen as one of the top divers in the conference. Kontura helped Nguyen shatter Academy records off both boards at the 2011 Patriot League championships en route to Diver of the Meet honors. In his first three seasons with the Black Knights, his divers broke three of the four Academy diving records. In 2008, Greg Sievers ’08 smashed both the 1-meter and 3-meter marks, while Lindsey Adao ’10 put together a record-setting performance on the 1-meter board. Prior to West Point, Kontura served as the diving coach at the University of California-Berkeley and saw several divers set numerous school records during his tenure. In 2005, the divers were a key reason the squad finished atop the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) National Dual Meet poll. That same year, he also led a group of the nation’s top young divers to a team championship at the Junior Pan-American Games in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. During the summer of 2008, he led Team USA to a tie for third place at the FINA Junior World Championships in Aachen, Germany. Before his tenure at Berkeley, Kontura coached the Mission Viejo Nadadores Diving Club, leading the 2003 team to the West Junior National Title. From 1996-2000, Kontura coached at Illinois State University where he helped produce the first Academic All-American in program history, while his divers broke every school record. He also coached and directed the Redbird Diving Club, which developed numerous Junior Olympic qualifiers and one Olympic Trials participant. Kontura’s coaching abilities were molded by his mentors Dick Kimball and Hobie Billingsley, both legendary Olympic coaches. As an assistant coach at Michigan, Kontura worked with Kimball to produce two All-American divers and also helped the women’s program to the 1996 Big Ten Championship and a third-place showing at the NCAA Championships. He had the opportunity to train alongside Billingsley leading up to the 1996 Olympics, and saw one of his teammates, Mark Lenzi, go on to win a spring board gold medal in 1992 and a bronze in 1996. Kontura began his collegiate coaching career at Allegheny College from 1994-1995 where he developed four NCAA Division III All-Americans. A 1996 USA Diving National Team member, Kontura medaled four times at USA Diving Nationals. Still active in the sport, Kontura has been a U.S. Masters National Champion since 1994, and recently won a gold and two silver medals at the 2006 FINA World Masters Diving Championships. A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Kontura was a four-year letterman at Ohio University, while working toward a degree in business administration in 1991. He also earned his MBA from Illinois State University in 1999. Kontura currently resides in Cornwall, N.Y. with his wife Erin, son Kyler and daughter Auden.

ABOUT THE PATRIOT LEAGUE Now in its third decade as an all-sport conference combining academic and athletic excellence, the Patriot League sponsors championships in 24 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. Boston University will join the Patriot League as a full member beginning in the 201314 season. 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, 84 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.

TURN BACK THE CLOCK: ARMY MEN FINISH SECOND AT 2007 USA SWIMMING SPRING CHAMPIONSHIPS EAST MEADOW, N.Y. (March 31, 2007) – The Army men’s swimming and diving team’s success this spring has gone from the conference to national level following a second place finish at the USA Swimming Spring Championships East Meadow, N.Y. “We had tremendous performances all week,” commented Army head coach Mickey Wender. “I’m proud of what our guys did out here, they represented Army swimming and the Academy extremely well. Jake (Mentele) and Zach (Disbrow) had great swims as they both made Olympic Trial cuts. This was a great way to cap what has been a very rewarding first year for me personally.” The Black Knights had been in seventh place at the midpoint of the competition, but used a very solid final two days of swims to improve upon that placement and finish second in the men’s team division. Army was represented in four events over the final two days and notched top- 8 finishes in three, including a second place finish in the 400-meter freestyle relay. The quartet of Zach Disbrow, Mike Soderberg, Jake Mentele and Efri Ruthenberg notched the best finish of the Spring Championships for Army with their runner-up placing in the event.
