ARMY WRESTLING FACILITIES ARMY WRESTLING FACILITIES

2013-14 Army Wrestling

Thanks to the generosity of supportive graduates, the Army wrestling team boasts among the nation’s finest facilities. The Gerald Lodge Wrestling Room, located on the second floor of Arvin Gymnasium, is the training home of the Black Knights. The massive workout space was redesigned three years ago and features four mats for drills and instruction with an additional two mats in a connecting room. A locker room with large wooden stalls connects to the Gerald Lodge Wrestling Room and is just steps away from a wrestlers-only lounge which includes a large screen television with DVD and surround sound, couches, wireless Internet and study areas. Cardio equipment is located throughout the room, allowing wrestlers several options for workouts. Arvin Gymnasium, which re-opened at the start of the 2006-07 academic year, is a 495,100-square foot building that includes eight large basketball courts, a state of the art rock climbing wall, racquetball courts, boxing rooms, two expansive weight rooms, a massive cardio/fitness area, indoor track, three swimming pools, athletic training facilities and a juice bar. It is, without question, one of the finest wrestling facilities in the nation. Black Knight head coach Joe Heskett believes that it gives Army an advantage as it continues to develop future NCAA All-Americans and national champions. The wrestling team hosts events at two locations, Gillis Field House or Christl Arena inside the Holleder Center, both boasting sizable locker rooms and both located just minutes from Arvin Gymnasium.

UNITED STATES MILITARY ACADEMY

THE UNITED STATES MILITARY ACADEMY PAGE 4


UNITED STATES MILITARY ACADEMY 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.

2013-14 Army Wrestling

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 selfdirected learning, essential characteristics of 21st century officers. The four-year academic experience leads to a bachelor of science degree and a commission as a second lieutenant in the Army. Physical development is achieved through a rigorous athletic and physical education program. Each cadet participates at the intercollegiate, club or intramural level each semester. This readies the cadet for the physical demands of military life and helps teach good judgment and self-discipline, even while under mental and physical stress. Military development begins with the cadet’s first day at West Point. Most military training takes place during the summer, with new cadets undergoing Cadet Basic Training, or Beast Barracks, their first year, followed the second summer by Cadet Field Training. Cadets spend their third and fourth summers serving in active Army units around the world; attending

Boo Corrigan was appointed as 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 cadet-athletes. 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 scholar-athlete. 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 twohour 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 behind-the-scenes book titled, “Soldiers First,” written by New York Times writer Joe Drape.


HEAD COACH JOE HESKETT

2013-14 Army Wrestling

JOE HESKETT HEAD COACH FOURTH SEASON IOWA STATE ’01 Joe Heskett embarks upon his fourth season as head coach of the Army wrestling program. A four-time All-American, national champion and former U.S. World Team member, Heskett joined Army after four years as an assistant coach at The Ohio State University. This past season, Heskett guided the Black Knights to a 3-3 EIWA record, while achieving an overall mark of 7-7. In 2011-12, Heskett led Army to 5-2 conference record, EIWA Freshman of the Year (first time in nearly 30 years) and a National Academic Award, which was awarded to Army wrestling for the first time. This past winter, Heskett helped six Black Knights place at the EIWA Championships. Since Heskett’s arrival in 2010 (Army had zero returning NCAA qualifiers in 2010) the Black Knights have sent 9 wrestlers to the NCAA tournament (2011 Army sent two athletes, 2012 Army sent three athletes and 2013 Army sent four athletes). The Black Knight currently have 3 NCAA qualifiers leading this year’s squad. Heskett, a 2001 graduate of Iowa State University, was ready for the opportunities and challenges that present themselves. “Life will often surprise us with outstanding opportunities,” said Heskett. “I am humbled and honored to be able to lead and represent the Army wrestling program. I am inspired by what West Point represents and I graciously accept the challenge to mentor and motivate the cadet-athletes, improve their technical and tactical skills on the mat and to beat Navy. I would like to thank my family, Kevin Anderson, the West Point search committee, specifically Associate Athletic Director Gene McIntyre for his time and energy, and the entire USMA athletic department.”

Heskett, who won the 165-pound national championship in 2002, is the ninth head coach in program history. “I am very excited to have one of the young talents in collegiate wrestling as our head coach,” said former Athletics Director Kevin Anderson. “Joe comes highly recommended from Athletic Director of the Year Gene Smith of Ohio State, has unmatched credentials on the mat and his passion and dedication to the sport should pay immediate dividends. He has continued to advance his career and we are confident he can lead us to wins over Navy, EIWA Championships and national qualifiers.” Heskett, the eighth four-time All-American at Iowa State, graduated with a degree in Speech Communications and a career record of 143-9 and began his masters degree after graduating in December, 2001. He was a three-time national finalist, finishing third as a freshman, followed by two overtime loses in the finals, but prevailed by earning the national title during his senior campaign. Heskett captured three Big 12 Championships, won the prestigious Midlands event on three occasions and graduated third on Iowa State’s all-time wins list. Following his decorated collegiate career, Heskett earned a spot on the 2007 U.S. World Team after winning the U.S. Nationals and U.S. World Team Trials. Heskett is a five time U.S. National Team Member and he represented the United States at the `07 World Championships in Baku, Azerbaijan with a fifth-place finish. He dropped a tough three-period battle with a two-time world champion from Russia in the semifinals before wrestling back to finish fifth. He was one of five United States wrestlers to qualify at his weight for the Olympics.

Earlier that summer, he won a silver medal at 163 pounds at the 2007 Pan American Games. Less than a week after returning from the World Championships, Heskett survived a rare and often fatal unannounced heart condition. After nearly a week of testing Heskett was diagnosed with a genetic heart condition and was forced to retire from competitive wrestling. He ended his career as the No. 1 man on the U.S. Olympic Ladder and was ranked third in the World. During his tenure at Ohio State, Hes-


HEAD COACH JOE HESKETT kett helped the Buckeyes to four top-10 team finishes at the NCAA Tournament, two of which were NCAA runner up finishes, three NCAA champions and 15 All-Americans. He played a large role in securing the nation’s top recruiting class in 2006 and helped sign a host of top prospects. Heskett began his coaching career at Cal Poly University where he was the head assistant wrestling coach and also earned his master’s degree with honors in Educational Leadership with an emphasis in Athletic Administration. He assisted in all facets of the program, including fundraising, and helped the Mustangs to their highest NCAA placement in nearly 20 years. Leadership and leadership

training is another passion of Heskett’s. He was Iowa State’s representative at the NCAA Leadership Conference, a board member of the Children’s Body Image, a former member of the Major Ray Mendoza Leadership Fund and an Ambassador and Public Awareness Speaker for the Ohio State Medical Center. He is the founder and Chief Visionary Officer for h Leadership (founded in 2009), a visionary leadership company dedicated revolutionizing sport through leadership and life skill education. A native of Akron, Ohio, Heskett and his three children, Olivia (8) and Ava (6) and Joey (3) reside at West Point.

EIWA CHAMPIONSHIPS The Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association (EIWA), as it is known today, had its beginning in 1904, when “the wireless and the automobile were still unproven innovations and the airplane merely a curiosity.” Then, students from a number of schools in the East met and proposed the creation of a group whose responsibility it would be to organize intercollegiate wrestling as a formal sport. One year later, wrestlers from Columbia, Pennsylvania, Princeton and Yale competed in the first EIWA tournament. Under the management of J. Edward Weisenfluh, a student at Penn, the first tournament was held April 7, 1905, in the Gymnasium of Weightman Hall on the Penn campus in Philadelphia. At this first meeting, the Intercollegiate Wrestling Association was born. Thereafter, three meetings were held each year, once just before the tournament, once just after the meet, and once in October at which a new tourney site was selected. No team scoring was kept at the first EIWA tournament in 1905. All that was recorded was the total number of bouts won by each wrestler in the following weight classes: 115, 125, 135, 145, 158, 175 and heavyweight. Based on that system, Yale won, followed in order by Columbia, Princeton and Pennsylvania. Remaining strictly a student organization for 35 years, the group gradually assumed the name “Eastern” to distinguish itself from the faculty-contolled “Western” Association, now known as the Big Ten. Ultimately, after the 1939 meet, the students capitulated to faculty control, and the Eastern College Athletic Conference, organized

in 1938, has since provided formal structure for the EIWA, which now functions as an allied entity of the ECAC. “The Easterns” have survived both as the oldest intercollegiate wrestling organization and as a unique athletic event with unusually widespread spectator appeal. Today, membership in the EIWA numbers 14 schools — American, Army, Brown, Bucknell, Columbia, Cornell, Franklin & Marshall, Harvard, Lehigh, Navy, Pennsylvania, Princeton, Rutgers and Sacred Heart. Both Yale and William & Mary were members into the mid-1990s, but Yale decided to drop wrestling and William & Mary opted for another conference. Following the 199697 season, Wilkes University announced it would be moving back to the Division III level after a 22-year stint in the EIWA. Army joined the EIWA in 1941, when George Welles became its first placewinner, finishing third at 155 pounds. It was three more years before the Black Knights had their first champions in the persons of Dave Wood in the 165-pound weight class and Joe Stanowicz at heavyweight. Stanowicz, the runnerup to Navy’s Shuford Swift the previous year, also won the heavyweight title in 1945. Army’s most recent EIWA champion is Matt Kyler, who won the 149-pound final in 2010. Army has won the team championship only once, in 1987 when it finished 18.5 points ahead of runner-up Navy. The Black Knights have finished second on four other occasions: 1944, 1945, 1946 and 1969.

ARMY WRESTLING HISTORY tive seasons of over 10 wins in the midst of a string of 20 consecutive winning seasons. Army never had a losing season in the decade of the ‘80s and only three times failed to finish in the top five at the EIWA Tournament. It was the most successful of any 10-year span in the program’s history. The Black Knights piled up 166 victories for a gaudy .801 winning percentage. In 1997-98 another wrestler shattered the 100-win barrier — Jarret Mathews — while Maurice Worthy qualified for the NCAA Championships in his rookie season. Led by Mathews’ 32 wins, the 1997-98 senior class became one of the most successful ever. The nine seniors combined to win over 70 percent of their matches, with a 168-52 overall record. Tod Giles assumed the reigns in 1998-99, and helped Worthy qualify for the NCAA Tournament. After four years at Army, including the last two as head coach, Giles stepped down to take a job in the private sector. Giles was an assistant for the 1997 team that knocked off Navy, 19-12. In 2000-01, another chapter in Army wrestling was started when Chuck Barbee became the eighth coach in the program’s history. During his tenure at the Academy, Barbee produced three NCAA AllAmericans in Worthy, Phillip Simpson and Matt Kyler. He also guided several other NCAA Qualifiers, including Bernard Gardner, Luke Calvert, John Paxton, Fernando Martinez, Nathan Thobaben and William Simpson. In 2008, Army had six NCAA qualifiers make the trip to St. Louis. The 2004-05 campaign yielded a 12-5 record and an appearance in the national rankings. One of the most successful seasons in Barbee’s tenure, which included the program’s 600th career dual match win, was capped by Simpson’s run to the NCAA title bout at 149 pounds. Although Simpson fell just short of becoming Army’s first national champion in over 40 years, he did lock up a school-record third All-America certificate. Simpson graduated the Academy as the winningest wrestler in the history of the program. Army sent 16 wrestlers to the NCAA Tournament during a four-year run during the Barbee era. The 2005-06 campaign saw eight of Barbee’s Black Knights place at the EIWA meet, led by third-place finishers Patrick Simpson (149), Jon Anderson (165) and Charles Martin (197). A year later, four Army wrestlers finished in the top-six at the conference championships, led by Kyler’s runner-up effort at 141. The 2007-08 team was among the most successful squads in recent years. Barbee earned Coach of the Year honors after helping Army to a third-place finish with six national qualifiers. The third-place finish at the league tournament was the highest Army had finished since the 1987 squad also came in third. Kyler won an individual championship and led six Black Knight placewinners. Kyler broke Fenske’s single-season win total by finishing the year with a 43-8 record. He was joined on the medal stand by Martinez (second), Christian Snook (fourth), Richard Starks (fourth), Scott Ferguson (second) and Thobaben (third). The 2008-09 squad had three national qualifiers, Kyler, Starks and William Simpson. Both Kyler and Simpson finished runner-up at the EIWA Championships and Simpson earned an at-large berth. While Starks qualified, he was unable to wrestle due to an injury. Joe Heskett, a 2002 Iowa State University graduate, took over the reins of the program prior to the 2010-11 season. He helped guide Army to a 7-9 overall record during his inaugural campaign at West Point. Brothers Casey Thome and Jordan Thome qualified for the NCAA Championships after strong runs at the EIWA Championships. Heskett led the Black Knights to an 8-6 mark in his second season. Army went 5-2 versus EIWA foes, and also knocked off a pair of nationally ranked opponents. First-year grappler Cole Gracey became the first Army wrestler in nearly 30 years to be named the EIWA Freshman of the Year, and three Black Knights qualified for the NCAA Championships. In 2012-13, Heskett guided the Black Knights to a 7-7 overall record that included a 3-3 showing in the EIWA. Army placed sixth at the EIWA Championships, marking its best placement in the tournament since 2008. Four Black Knights qualified for the NCAA Championships.

2013-14 Army Wrestling

Army wrestling has come a long way since the first seed was planted back in 1906. History has recorded that President Theodore Roosevelt, during his second term in office, suggested that wrestling be added to the curriculum at West Point. During that same period, Col. Herman J. Koehler was completing a major expansion of the physical education program. Wrestling was part of that expansion plan. In 1906, Koehler offered the position of wrestling coach to Tom Jenkins, then recognized as one of the finest wrestlers in the world. Jenkins accepted the offer and devoted 37 years to coaching and teaching wrestling to the cadets at West Point. It wasn’t until 1921, though, that wrestling had its intercollegiate beginning. Army went 1-2 in that historic first season, defeating Washington & Lee, 19-6, for its first victory. There have been many winning seasons since. In 88 years of competing on the intercollegiate level, Army teams have combined for a 649418-37 record (.605), while 64 of those teams completed their seasons with a .500 or better winning percentage. Jenkins laid the groundwork for a winning tradition here, and none of the five coaches who have succeeded him has done anything to diminish that record of achievement and excellence. He coached Army teams for 15 years, retiring in 1935 with a 52-46-3 record. Lloyd Appleton, a silver medalist in the 1928 Olympics and an undefeated collegiate wrestler, replaced Jenkins at the controls, remaining at West Point as head coach through the 1954 campaign. His teams compiled an 86-51-5 record in his 17 seasons as coach, with only two finishing below .500. Appleton, who served as an instructor in the Department of Physical Education at West Point for another 16 years and helped establish a wrestling program for Army troops in Europe, was inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in 1983. LeRoy Alitz took over the coaching reins from Appleton in 1955 and held them for the next 23 years, closing out an illustrious career with a 144-134-15 composite record. As was the case with Appleton, he, too, was quite successful in championship tournaments. He guided the Cadets to seven straight top-five finishes at the EIWAs and a couple of top-10 finishes at the NCAA meet. He had five wrestlers win EIWA titles and 74 earn place awards. He coached the only NCAA champion Army has ever had in the person of Mike Natvig, the winner at 147 pounds in both 1962 and 1963. The contributions Alitz made to the Army wrestling program didn’t go unnoticed. In 1992, he joined Appleton as an inductee into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame. He entered the Iowa Wrestling Foundation Hall of Fame in that same year. West Point has had six head coaches since Alitz stepped down following the 1977 season, and all of them have kept the winning fires burning. Ron Pifer compiled a 31-26-2 record from 1978-80, then Ed Steers assumed control in 1981, holding that position for nine years. Steers won more meets than any of his predecessors, closing out his West Point career with a 151-37-2 mark, or a winning percentage of .800. The Black Knights averaged an astounding 16 wins per season during Steers’ tenure. His teams won five New York State championships and finished second on three other occasions, and in 1987 he guided Army to its first and only EIWA team title. Jack Effner, an assistant under Steers in 1988-89, coached the Black Knights the next nine years before departing for Cleveland State following the 1997-98 season. Effner held up the high standard of winning at the Academy, compiling an 87-42-5 record at West Point, and left as the third-winningest coach in Army history. The 1996-97 season marked another winning year for the Cadets, who sported an 8-6 mark. But it was that eighth win that will be remembered for years to come. On February 22 in Christl Arena, Army snapped a frustrating 34-year winless streak against Navy with a 19-12 victory. Brad Fenske capped a record-setting season with his second straight trip to nationals. After reaching the EIWA finals at 142 pounds, he went on to the NCAA Tournament at Northern Iowa and fell just one win shy of becoming Army’s 13th All-America selection. Fenske won a school-record 42 matches that season on his way to setting a then-school standard for career victories with 126. From 1978-79 to 1991-92, the Black Knights put together 14 consecu-

LLOYD APPLETON DISTINGUISHED MEMBER NATIONAL WRESTLING HALL OF FAME CLASS OF 1983

He has probably taught wrestling to more young people than any other man. In four decades as coach and physical instructor at the U.S. Military Academy, LeRoy Alitz educated more than 30,000 cadets in the skills and discipline of the sport. As Army officers, these former cadets continue to teach wrestling as physical training for combat troops. During 23 seasons as varsity coach, 1955-77, Alitz won 144 dual meets and produced Army’s only NCAA champion, Mike Natvig, in 1962 and 1963. Six years of high school coaching in his home state of Iowa pushed his victory total over 200. Alitz led the United States to the World Military Games championship in Egypt in 1963, the nation’s first international team trophy in wrestling. He also coached the World University team in the Moscow Games of 1973 and several All-Army teams that competed overseas. He brought many notables to West Point, including Hall of Famers Doug Blubaugh and Gray Simmons, and helped shape their post-graduate international careers. One of his protégés, as a varsity wrestler and freshman coach, was H. Norman Schwarzkopf, later the commanding general of allied forces in the Gulf War. Alitz helped develop Eastern wrestling programs and inaugurated the Little Easterns for freshmen, until plebes were granted varsity eligibility. He had national impact as chairman of the NCAA rules committee for six years and as a member of the governing council of USA Wrestling for a dozen seasons. He served as president of the National Wrestling Coaches Association and the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association, and helped develop the Eastern and National Wrestling Officials Associations. An All-American wrestler at Northern Iowa, he placed fourth in the 1948 Olympic Trials. As a leader, who established foundations for the development of wrestling and a teacher of its values in life, LeRoy A. Alitz is honored as a Distinguished Member of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame.

He was National AAU runner-up at both 158 and 175 pounds in 1927. The next year, Lloyd Appleton concentrated on one weight class, and won a silver medal in the Olympic Games. In high school, his sports were baseball and basketball, but when he entered Cornell College of Iowa and encountered renowned coach Dick Barker, his wrestling skills soon became evident. He was undefeated as a collegian, competing against Missouri Valley, Big Ten and Midwest Conference opponents from 158 pounds to heavyweight. He won the National AAU title at 158 pounds again in 1928, along with the Olympic Trials and the Olympic silver at Amsterdam. For the next six years, he taught sciences and mathematics at prep schools in Maine and Massachusetts, and at each of those three schools he organized a wrestling program. As a 175-pound wrestler, he won New England championships and the National YMCA title in 1931-32, and made the Olympic Team, again as an alternate. Starting in 1936, he served 19 years as wrestling coach at the U.S. Military Academy, and remained at West Point 16 more years as a professor of physical education, the first civilian to attain that rank. Not only did he develop consistent winners among his varsity teams, but in his course, “Wrestling for Military Leadership,” he established wrestling programs for U.S. troops in Europe, organizing and conducting clinics for coaches and officials who were preparing for the military championships. Throughout his coaching and teaching career, he played an active role in such organizations as the Boy Scouts, the YMCA, the American Heart Association, and state and local health organizations. As an athlete of exceptional achievement, and as a humanitarian who used the values of wrestling to better the health and happiness of young people, Lloyd Otto Appleton is honored as a Distinguished Member of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame.

2013-14 Army Wrestling

The Mike Natvig Award, established in 1973, is presented to the team’s Most Outstanding Wrestler. Mike Natvig, USMA Class of 1963, enjoyed one of the most successful wrestling careers in Army’s storied history. In his junior and senior seasons, he did something no other Army wrestler has ever accomplished. He won two national championships. In 2004, Natvig was recognized for his achievements by being one of 16 athletes selected in the Army Sports Hall of Fame inaugural class. As a junior in 1962, Natvig lost in the finals of the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association (EIWA) Tournament at 157 pounds, bowing to Lehigh great Kirk Pendleton, 11-4. Both wrestlers dropped down to 147 for the NCAA meet and again met in the championship final. This time it was Natvig coming away the winner by a very close 5-4 margin. Pendleton would lose only two matches his entire career at Lehigh, one of those against Natvig in the 1962 NCAA finals. Natvig was at 147 pounds for the 1963 EIWA tournament - Pendleton one weight class higher at 157. Both won individual titles. Both also went on to win championships at the NCAA tournament where Natvig Mike Natvig successfully defended his crown with a 7-2 victory over Lonnie Rubis of Minnesota in the finals. Throughout the course of that 1963 tournament, Natvig allowed his opponents only three points. His win played a tremendous role in helping Army finish in 14th place — fourth highest ever at the Academy. Army’s only finishes that were higher were its 10th-place finishes in 1965 and 1966, and the 13th spot earned by the Black Knights in 1986. Natvig was more than just an All-American and national champion. He was a leader in the purest sense. Elected team captain his senior year, he was also selected to the high leadership position of Battalion Commander within the Corps of Cadets. Team co-captain Jarret Mathews was the 1998 recipient of the Mike Natvig Award. Mathews posted a 32-6 record that season, marking the eighth-highest singleseason victory total in school history. He became only the sixth Cadet to surpass the 100-win mark in a career, and he graduated ranked fifth all-time with 103 West Point victories. Troy Yegge, the 1999 recipient of the award, closed out a stellar college wrestling career as the last wrestler to win the award in the 1990s. He is 13th on the all-time list of career wins (82), ninth in pins (22) and holds the 14th highest single-season total for pins. Maurice Worthy was bestowed the honor at the end of the 2000 and 2001 seasons. He won 29 matches in 2000 which placed him in the top 25 on the Academy’s list of wins in a season. In 2001, Worthy compiled Matt Kyler a 34-1 record, finishing as the NCAA runner-up. Worthy qualified for the NCAAs three times in his illustrious career and racked up 99 victories. His 14 pins was the third highest total in any one season as well. Phillip Simpson (USMA ‘05) is the only four-time recipient. A three-time NCAA All-American, Simpson graduated as the Academy’s all-time leader in wins (134) and ranked second on the school’s career pins chart (54). Matt Kyler is the second wrestler to win the award three times, joining Dennis Semmel. Kyler was the recipient in 2007 and 2008 and last year, shared the award with Richard Stacks. Kyler finished a record-setting sophomore year with a sixth-place finish at the NCAA Championships to earn All-America honors at 141 pounds. After sweeping six matches to garner the EIWA title, Kyler compiled a 4-3 record at the national championships despite facing a ranked opponent every time he set foot on the mat. He finished the year with an Academy record 43-8 individual mark to finish third nationally in victories. During his freshman year, Kyler also led the team in wins with a 31-12 record while totaling six falls and 10 major decisions - also a squad best. His second-place finish at the EIWA Championships earned him a trip to the NCAA Championships. A Clearfield, Pa., native, Kyler posted a 40-7 record during his junior campaign, including an unbeaten 18-0 mark on dual meets. Ranked as high as sixth nationally, Kyler won individual titles at the New York State Championships and All-Academy Championships. Starks racked up a 33-6 mark in 2008-09 with a 15-3 dual meet record and also won titles at the New York State Championships and AllRichard Starks Academy Championships. He finished second at EIWAs and qualified for nationals but did not wrestle due to an injury.
