w w w. N AV Y S P O RT S . c o m

1996, ‘97, ‘99, 2007, ‘08, ‘09, ‘10 Patriot League Champions John Officer is in his 27th season as the head coach of the Navy men’s tennis program. He has led the Mids to winning seasons in all but three of his 26 seasons at the school, and is the winningest coach in school history with his having compiled an overall record of 409-273. Officer has guided Navy to seven NCAA Tournament appearances over his last 15 season. This includes a stretch of four appearances from 2007-10. During that recent four-year span the Mids posted an overall record of 69-42 and a Patriot League mark of 27-1. The Mids have totaled seven Patriot League titles and placed second at the league tournament four times during Officer’s 19 seasons of coaching them in the league. Four of those crowns were accrued from 2007-10, with the additional titles coming in 1996, ‘97 and ‘99. The seven league titles won by Officer is the most of any men’s tennis coach in Patriot League history. Navy players have totaled 25 All-Patriot League honors under the current format for selecting the allleague teams that was adopted in 2003. Included in this tally were four all-league selections during the 2010 season –– Owen Bullard, first team; Jeremy New, first team; Nicholas Gutsche, second team; Marcus Rebersak, second team –– and two during the 2011 campaign –– Owen Bullard, first team; Jeremy New, second team. The prior format utilized by the league saw 13 of Officer’s singles players and nine of his doubles teams receive all-league accolades. Additionally, members of the Navy team have been selected as the Patriot League Player of the

Year on seven occasions, including Mitchell Koch and Nate Nelms, who both received the honor twice, and Owen Bullard, who won the laurel last season. Navy players also have been regulary recognized for their academic achievements. Nick Birger was selected as the Patriot League’s Scholar-Athlete of the Year for men’s tennis following the conclusion of the 2010 and ‘11 seasons, was the league’s overall male schilar-athlete of the year as a senior and was the valedictorian of the USNA’s Class of 2011. Also, Navy players have accrued 49 placings onto the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll over the years. Navy and Officer also enjoyed a great deal of success as a five-year member of the Colonial Athletic Association prior to joining the Patriot League. The Mids won CAA titles twice and placed no lower than third in the remaining three seasons. On a national level, Navy attained its highest ranking of No. 75 during the 2000 season and have received a regional ranking 10 times. Individually, Craig Moringiello and Mitch Koch earned top-100 national rankings in 1991 and ‘99, respectively, while the duo and Chris Thompson totaled five regional rankings in singles. Officer also has had four of his doubles tandems garner a regional ranking. Officer himself is a six-time recipient of the Patriot League Coach-of-the-Year accolade. He earned the laurel annually from 2007-10, as well as in 1996 and ‘99. His tally is the most of any men’s tennis coach in league history.

Charting Officer

“The team had an excellent fall while competing in the two home invitationals as well as at the ITA Atlantic Regional. We feel we will be much improved from last season, thanks to the addition of four highly-rated freshmen. They are projected to fill the Nos. 2-5 slots in our singles lineup. “Marcus Rebersak will play No. 1 for us and serve as team captain. Marcus was ranked No. 125 on the ITA national rankings last fall. This year, he defeated players from St. Bonaventure, Georgetown and George Washington. In doubles, Marcus will play with Anderson Walls this spring and together they posted a win over UMBC this fall. Marcus beat Virginia Commonwealth at regionals in doubles with Calvin Mark. “Leading the way for the freshmen will be Peter McDonald, who posted a 4-1 record this fall with wins over Georgetown, Temple and UMBC at No. 2 singles. Calvin Mark will play No. 3 after going 7-3 on the fall. He competed at the regional championship through his winning a pair of qualifying matches at the event, then went on to defeat a player from Radford during the main draw. He also went three sets with the No. 5 seed in the event (Maryland’s Marcos Horny), while he earlier beat players from UMBC, Temple and Georgetown. “Tyler Burnett will hold down the No. 4 singles position. He went 3-3 on the fall defeating players from UMBC and Temple. Blake Daniel will play No. 5 singles. He went 5-3 on the fall with wins over opponents from Temple, Georgetown, UMBC and Binghamton. Nick Gutsche, who posted 20 wins at No. 6 two years ago as a freshman, will move back down the lineup from No. 4 position last year to No. 6 this spring. He posted wins over foes from Temple and UMBC this fall. “We will have excellent depth this year. Matt Richmond, who played No. 5 singles last year, will challenge for a singles slot. Heyward Drayton, who played No. 3 singles last spring, also will challenge for a singles position. Heyward had a win over a player from Penn State last year. Chris Kenney is much improved, and Anderson Walls played No. 3 singles as a freshman before having knee surgery. He looks to be recovered and will certainly give us great depth. Alex Sisk worked very hard to make the team as a walk-on and pushes his teammates everyday in practice. “The doubles teams also look to be set. Rebersak and Walls will play No 1 and Mark and McDonald will play No. 2. The latter duo posted a 5-1 record on the fall with wins over teams from Temple, UMBC and Georgetown. The third team will be either Daniel-Gutsche (4-1), with wins over teams from Temple and Georgetown, or DraytonKenney (4-0), with wins over teams from Georgetown, UMBC and Binghamton. Overall, the doubles play was very solid this fall. “The goals for the spring including our re-capturing the league title, which we had won for four straight years before last year. We also are looking to establish ourselves more on the national scene. “I have enjoyed coaching this team as much as any I have had. The guys work hard every day and look to improve. Additionally, Marcus has done a good job of leading this young team.”

Assistant Coach of the Year John Moreland is in his 11th season as the lead assistant coach for the Navy men’s tennis program. The Mids have compiled a 151-110 dual match record during his 10 seasons, including a 100-63 mark over the last six years. Moreland was selected as the 2009 ITA Northeast Region Coach of the Year. He helped guide the Mids that season to an 18-8 record and the third of the team’s four straight NCAA Tournament appearances. After graduating from Washington College (Chestertown, Md.) in 1996, Moreland immediately began his coaching career as a volunteer assistant coach at Marietta College (Marietta, Ohio). He would return to his alma mater in 1998 as an assistant coach for both tennis programs at the school. During his two years at the school he coached two singles players and four doubles players who earned AllAmerica honors, as well as a pair of ITA regional singles and doubles champions. Moreland would serve as the head coach of the men’s and women’s teams at St. Mary’s College for one season prior to arriving at Navy. He would coach the conference women’s rookie of the year during his lone campaign at St. Mary’s. In addition to his Bachelor’s Degree from Washington College, he also earned a Master’s Degree from the school in 2004. Moreland married his wife, Kay, during the summer of 2011.

The 2011-12 season will be Jim Laitta’s second as a volunteer assistant coach with the program. Laitta most recently served as an assistant coach at Ohio State during the 2009-10 season. The Buckeyes compiled a 35-2 record on the year and advanced to the quarterfinal round of the NCAA Tournament where they lost to the eventual national champions, USC. Prior to his one-year stint in Columbus, Ohio, Laitta spent 19 seasons as a head coach with the Maryland tennis programs. While coaching the men’s team for all 19 years in College Park, he also served as the head coach of the school’s women’s team for his first 11 years at the school. When he arrived in College Park, neither tennis program received any scholarship funding. The women’s team became fully funded in his eighth season while the men’s program reached that level towards the end of his time at the school. Despite those limitations, Laitta led the women’s team to a trio of NCAA Tournament appearances and saw the men’s progarm earn national rankings in each of his final three seasons. A 1988 graduate of Eastern Kentucky, Laitta was the head coach of the Mississippi State women’s team from 1988-90. His doubles tandem of Claire Pollard and Jackie Holden won the 1989 NCAA national championship.

The Naval Academy Athletic Association dedicated the Dyer Tennis Clubhouse in ceremonies held in November of 2000.

8th Wing Tennis Courts

The facility is named to honor the late Vice Admiral George Dyer (Academy Class of 1919) by his daughter and her husband, Jo and Weston Burnett. Mr. Burnett is also an Academy graduate (‘43) and retired with the rank of Commander. The Burnett’s are longtime supporters of the Navy tennis program.

The building includes coaches offices, a racquet stringing room, locker rooms for both coaches and players, a lounge, a public address system and a viewing deck overlooking the courts.

“We greatly appreciate the generosity of the Burnetts to the Navy tennis program,” said then-Director of Athletics, Jack Lengyel. “The Dyer Tennis Clubhouse will only help to enhance and strengthen an already highly successful program.” “We are very grateful to the Dyer family for their contribution to the Navy tennis program,” said Navy head coach John Officer. “The Dyer Tennis Clubhouse is one of the finest facilities of its kind in the nation. It is a wonderful building the team will be able to enjoy for many years to come.”

“This is a suitable facility for not only an excellent tennis team, but also a proper way to honor Vice Admiral George Dyer,” said Mr. Burnett. “He was well known throughout Annapolis for his charitable works, and this will only add to his legacy.”

The U.S. Naval Academy dedicated and opened the Tose Family Tennis Center and the entire Thornton D. and Elizabeth S. Hooper Brigade Sports Complex during the fall of 2007. The tennis portion of the facility, named after Maurice (‘78) and Terri Tose and their family, features six indoor and six outdoor tennis courts, with the indoor hard courts encompassing some 49,000 square feet. The outdoor courts include the Fluegel-Moore Tennis Stadium, named after Rick (‘61) and Donna Fluegel and Bill (‘61) and Sandra Moore, while one indoor court has been dedicated in the name of James (‘58) and Rosemary Adkins.

“Our new indoor tennis facility will be a tremendous addition for our team training, as well as a draw for future recruits,” said Navy head coach John Officer. “The facility is first class and already has to be considered one of the finest in the country.”

Located across the Severn River and adjacent to the Naval Academy Golf Course, the 150,000-square foot facility was privately funded and built at a cost of $18.5 million. In addition to the tennis wing of the complex, it also includes hockey and rugby venues, an indoor hitting, chipping and putting facility for the golf team and club members, a fitness center, a restaurant, the pro shop for the golf course, athletic training rooms, numerous locker rooms for all of the Navy and visiting teams, office space for the various coaches and meeting rooms for each of the programs.

Now in its third decade as an all-sport conference combining academic and athletic excellence, the Patriot League sponsors championships in 23 men and women’s sports. Initially started as an NCAA Division I-AA football conference in 1986, the Patriot League became an all-sport conference in 1990 and includes American, Army, Bucknell, Colgate, Holy Cross, Lafayette, Lehigh and Navy as full members, and Fordham, Georgetown and MIT as associate members. These institutions are among the oldest and most prestigious in the nation and their alumni have and continue to play leadership roles in shaping our country.

Since 1998, the Patriot League has ranked first each year among all Division I conferences awarding athletic aid in the NCAA Graduation Rate Report. The League finished at the top spot with nearly all of its teams reporting a graduation rate of 85 percent or higher in the most recent data. In addition, 82 teams from Patriot League full-member institutions earned NCAA Academic Performance Program Public Recognition Awards after posting academic progress rate scores in the top 10 percent of all squads in their respective sports.

The Patriot League’s mission is simple, to provide successful competitive athletic experiences while maintaining high academic standards, and to prepare its student-athletes to be leaders in society.

 Mac Anthony, Men’s Swimming

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

Swimmer of the Meet

*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.

 Al Cantello, Men’s Cross Country Coach of the Year (Third-Consecutive Honor)

*Six different schools claimed multiple Patriot League titles, led by Navy with seven.

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

*11 student-athletes have been named Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-Americans, including Navy’s Sam Miller and Alex Foskett (men’s soccer), Nick Birger (men’s tennis), and Cody Rome (men’s track & field). *55 Patriot League student-athletes have earned Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-District honors, with 39 on the first team.

*The Navy trio of Olaf Olson, Mark Meyer and Justin Vagts all competed at the NCAA Men’s Swimming and Diving Championship. Navy baseball claimed the 2011 Patriot League Regular Season Championship, and then defeated Army in the Tournament Championship Series.

As the undergraduate college of the Naval service, the Naval Academy prepares young men and women to become professional officers and leaders in the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. Naval Academy students are midshipmen on active duty in the U.S. Navy. They attend the academy for four years, graduating with bachelor of science degrees and commissions as ensigns in the Navy or second lieutenants in the Marine Corps. Naval Academy graduates serve at least five years as Navy or Marine Corps officers.

Founded in 1845 by Secretary of the Navy George Bancroft, the Academy started as the Naval School on 10 acres of old Fort Severn in Annapolis with an original class of 55. In 1850 the Naval School became the United States Naval Academy. A new curriculum went into effect requiring midshipmen to study at the Academy for four years and to train aboard ships each summer. Congress authorized the Naval Academy to begin awarding bachelor of science degrees in 1933. Today, the Academy offers 23 major fields of study, a wide variety of elective courses and advanced study and research opportunities. USNA MISSION STATEMENT “To develop midshipmen morally, mentally and physically and to imbue them with the highest ideals of duty, honor and loyalty in order to graduate leaders who are dedicated to a career of naval service and have potential for future deployment in mind and character to assume the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship and government.”

From the first athletic competition played on the gridiron in 1879 to Navy's recent triumphs, several events, people, rivalries and personalities have shaped the entire Naval Academy athletic program. Below is a look at just some of the history and traditions that make Navy one of the most storied programs in all of collegiate athletics. ANCHORS AWEIGH "Anchors Aweigh" was written by Lt. Charles Zimmermann, Musical Director of the Naval Academy in 1906, with the lyrics provided by Alfred H. Miles of the Class of 1906, as a fight song for the 1907 graduating class instead of the usual class march Zimmermann had composed for previous classes. The song made its debut at the 1906 Army-Navy game, and when the Midshipmen won the game, the song became traditional at this game. It gained national exposure in the 1920s and 1930s when it was heard on the radio and was in a number of popular movies. In 1997 a one-hour documentary on the history of Navy football, titled "Anchors Aweigh for Honor and Glory", was produced by NFL Films. The film was deemed a success by both critics and fans alike. Here are the words: Stand Navy down the field, Sails set to the sky, We'll never change our course, So Army you steer shy. Roll up the score, Navy, Anchors Aweigh, Sail Navy down the field, And sink the Army, Sink the Army Grey

BILL THE GOAT The first recorded use of a goat mascot for Navy athletic teams was in 1893 when an animal named El Cid (The Chief) was turned over to the Brigade by young officers of the USS New York. El Cid helped Navy to a 6-4 triumph over Army that year. Two cats, a dog, and a carrier pigeon have also enjoyed brief reigns as the Navy mascot, but goats have served without interruption since 1904. Bill XXXIII and XXXIV are the current mascots. They are taken care of by 15 goathandlers made up of five midshipmen from the first, second and third classes. The goathandlers undergo rigorous training prior to handling Bill on the field. BLUE & GOLD This song was written in 1923 by Cmdr. Roy DeS. Horn, USN (Ret.) with music composed by J.W. Crosley. Following every home athletic competition, the team faces its fans with their hands on their heart and sings the following notes:-

N AV Y M E N ’ S T E N N I S Now, colleges from sea to sea May sing of colors true; But who has better right than we To hoist a symbol hue? For sailors brave in battle fair, Since fighting days of old, Have proved the sailor's right to wear The Navy Blue and Gold

 The Blue Angels perform an air show along the Severn River on the northern bank of the Academy each spring during Commissioning Week.

ENTERPRISE BELL From the bridge of the famed World War II aircraft carrier, it has been a part of the Naval Academy tradition since 1950. The late Admiral Harry W. Hill, then Superintendent, was instrumental in bringing the "E" Bell to Annapolis. It rings during special ceremonies when Navy scores a majority of victories over Army in any one of the three sports seasons. The bell also rings during Commissioning Week for those teams that beat Army and have not participated in a previous bell-ringing during the academic year. The bell is stationed in front of Bancroft Hall.

 The Navy football team gathered for the traditional singing of the Blue & Gold following its win over Army in 2010, its ninth-consecutive win over its rival. Below: The men’ s lacrosse team sang an emotional rendition of Blue & Gold following its overtime victory over rival Johns Hopkins in 2010.

In the early days of the American Navy, midshipmen trained aboard ship until they were eventually commissioned as ensigns. With the founding of the Naval Academy in 1845, it became possible, as it still is, for a midshipman to enter the Navy directly from civilian life. The name of students at the Naval Academy changed several times between 1870 and 1902, when Congress restored the original title of Midshipman, and it has remained unchanged since.

TECUMSEH The familiar Native American figurehead facing Bancroft Hall and Tecumseh Court has been an Annapolis resident since 1866. Originally, the figurehead of the USS Delaware was meant to portray Tamanend, the great chief of the Delawares. It developed that Tamanend was a lover of peace and did not strike the fancy of the Brigade. Looking for another name, Midshipmen referred to the figurehead as Powhatan and King Philip before finally settling on Tecumseh, the fierce Shawnee chieftain who lived from 1768-1813. The original wooden statue was replaced after some 50 years in the open weather by a durable bronze replica, presented by the Class of 1891. It is considered a good-luck "mascot" for the midshipmen, who in times past would throw pennies at it and offer left-handed salutes whenever they wanted a 'favor', such as a sports win over West Point, or spiritual help for examinations. These days it receives a fresh coat of war paint and is often decorated in various themes during football weeks and other special occasions such as Commissioning Week.

MIDSHIPMAN The word midshipman first appeared in English in the 17th century in the form of the word midshipman to designate those men who were stationed "amidships," i.e. in the waist or middle portion of the vessel, while on duty. By 1687, however, the second 's' had been dropped to give the current form of the word. Midshipmen were originally boys, sometimes as young as seven or eight, who were apprenticed to sea captains to learn the sailor's trade.

In his 11th year as Director of Athletics, Chet Gladchuk has overseen a renaissance of the Naval Academy athletic program. His administrative leadership has helped lead the program to one of the most successful periods in school history. In 2010-11, Navy won 63 percent of its contests and claimed the overall series against Army for the 18th time in the last 19 years. Navy produced nine All-Americans, 11 conference athletes of the year, nine conference coaches of the year and 11 conference championships. The Mids also excelled in the classroom, ranking No. 4 in the country in graduation rate for student-athletes (among Football Bowl Subdivision schools) and all 24 of Navy’s NCAA sponsored varsity sports rank above the national average in the Academic Progress Report, including five teams with perfect scores. Navy had five Academic All-Americans, four Patriot League Scholar Athletes of the Year and an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship winner. Six of the top 15 Naval Academy graduates and 28 of the top 100 graduates in the Class of 2011 were involved with varsity or club athletics. The football team had another successful season in 2010, posting a 9-4 record and playing in a school-record eighth-consecutive bowl game. The Mids beat Army for a series-record ninth-consecutive year and defeated Notre Dame for the third time in four seasons. Other teams who flourished in 2010-11 included the women’s basketball team winning the Patriot League Championship and advancing to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history; the rifle team placed seventh at the NCAA Championship; the women’s lacrosse team advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the second-straight season; intercollegiate sailing placed ninth at the ICSA Nationals; the baseball team won the Patriot League Regular Season and Tournament titles and participated in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2002; while the water polo, men’s cross country, men’s swimming & diving, men’s indoor track & field, women’s indoor track & field and women’s rowing all won conference titles. Gladchuk’s efforts have been recognized on a national level as well, as the Division IA Athletic Directors Association named him the 2005 Bobby Dodd Athletic Director of the Year. The award is presented in recognition of an athletic director’s support and commitment toward the successful advancement of the department, most specifically in the sport of football. Additionally, he was recognized by the Secretary of the Navy for his contributions and service to the Navy and the Naval Academy with the Superior Public Service Award to the Department of the Navy. Gladchuk has been able to parlay Navy’s athletic success into an exclusive television deal with CBS ports Network that has increased

Navy’s television exposure both in the United States and internationally. CBS Sports Network, the first 24-hour college sports network, televises every Navy home and select neutral site football games (excluding Notre Dame and Army which are televised nationally by CBS), as well as other Midshipmen men's and women's athletic events, original programming and documentaries centered on the storied Navy athletic program. The long-term, multi-media agreement includes internet streaming, broadband and video-on-demand rights and high definition rights. A major part of the agreement was that all home football games would be played on Saturday for the convenience of the Navy alumni. Navy sports are seen all over the world with the international distribution of Navy programming, especially to the troops serving abroad. Navy’s contract with CBS Sports Network runs through 2018. Gladchuk has also added radio giants WBAL (1090 AM) in Baltimore and WFED (1500 AM, 1050 AM, 820 AM) in Washington D.C./Northern Virginia to Navy’s radio network. WBAL Radio, which is also the home of the Ravens, is Maryland's dominant and most powerful radio station. Since 1925, generations of Marylanders have turned to WBAL Radio for news, weather, thought-provoking discussions and sports. As Maryland's only 50,000-watt AM station, WBAL's signal travels substantially further than any other station in the state. WFED Radio, which is also the home of the Washington Nationals, is a 50,000-watt station that will air a minimum of 10 regular-season football games. WFED is your source for federal news covering both the Federal Government

and those who do business with the government. Since being introduced as the Academy's 28th Director of Athletics on Sept. 4, 2001, Gladchuk has pressed forward on numerous fronts with energy and vision. From the hiring of Paul Johnson and Ken Niumatalolo as head football coaches to the renovation of NavyMarine Corps Memorial Stadium, Gladchuk has made improvements in several key areas that will prove more success on the athletic fields for years to come. Recent head coaching hires such as Bill Roberts in men’s swimming, John Morrison in women’s swimming, Paul Kostacopoulos in baseball, Keith Puryear in women’s tennis, Cindy Timchal, the all-time winningest women’s lacrosse coach in NCAA history, Stefanie Pemper, one of the all-time winningest Division III women’s basketball coaches, Dave Brandt, the all-time winningest soccer coach in NCAA history, Larry Bock, the all-time winningest coach in collegiate volleyball history, Ed DeChellis, the 2009 Big Ten Basketball Coach of the Year at Penn State, and men’s lacrosse coach Rick Sowell, who was a twotime America East Coach of the Year. During Gladchuk’s tenure at the Naval Academy, he has seen the Midshipmen win 75 conference titles, produce 137 All-Americans and 48 Academic All-Americans. Gladchuk has also worked tirelessly to bring back school spirit, working in conjunction with school officials to encourage midshipmen to attend events for all sports. He has embraced the local community and alumni base, and is an often-requested speaker, visiting areas all over the country as he shares the vision of the Naval Academy and the Naval Academy Athletic Association. Gladchuk’s biggest impact on the Naval Academy has been the $42 million renovation of Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium where under his leadership the stadium was completely refurbished over a four-year time frame. The addition of 6,500 permanent seats on the sidelines and in the end zones, 32 luxury boxes, dropping the field eight feet and moving the sidelines closer, two video scoreboards, a memorial plaza, upgraded restroom and concession areas, a perimeter walking path, new lighting, a new sound system, landscaping the grounds and storm water management highlight the list of renovations. Gladchuk has worked closely with the city, county, state and neighborhood associations to ensure proper communication and sensitivity to issues that benefit both the NAAA and community at large. The NAAA was awarded the Green Star award by former Annapolis Mayor Ellen Moyer for commitment to the environment during the ongoing renovation of Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Gladchuk and the NAAA have also teamed up with the Naval Academy Foundation to raise over $75 million in private giving for facilities

such as the Brigade Sports Complex (hockey and tennis), Max Bishop Stadium (baseball), varsity squash courts, various team locker rooms and a number of practice facilities. Other highlights during Gladchuk’s tenure at the Naval Academy include the recent renegotiation of the Army-Navy contract which resulted in over $46 million to the two schools over the next eight years, scheduling Maryland, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Army at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore to promote Navy football in the community, negotiating the extension of the Navy-Notre Dame football game television contract with CBS through 2018 and negotiating bowl deals with the Houston, Emerald, Poinsettia, Meineke Car Care, EagleBank, Texas, Armed Forces and Military Bowls. Gladchuk is heavily involved with NCAA and Patriot League committees. He recently was selected to serve on the NCAA Leadership Council, which is one of the highest NCAA appointments an athletic director can realize. The council helps set the Division I legislative agenda and advises the NCAA regarding major legislative issues being considered. The primary responsibility of the council is to identify those issues on the horizon that can impact Division I and intercollegiate athletics as a whole and spends much of its time planning for the future of Division I and helps set the course for the future. Gladchuk is also on the NACDA (National Association of Collegiate Athletic Directors) Executive Committee and has served as the Chairman of the Executive Committee in the Patriot League and a member of the NCAA Olympic Sport Liaison Committee. Gladchuk came to the Naval Academy from the University of Houston, where he had been the Director of Athletics since July 18, 1997. Recognized as one of the nation’s top leaders in intercollegiate athletics management, he guided the Cougars to 19 Conference USA Championships, while making significant strides in the academic success of their student-athletes, gender equity and fiscal management. Before Houston, Gladchuk was the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, Intramurals and Recreation for seven years at his alma mater, Boston College. Under Gladchuk, Boston College emerged as one of the NCAA’s elite programs of the 1990s winning numerous Big East and NCAA Championships. The school’s graduation rate for all student-athletes was over 90 percent and the Eagles won the College Football Association’s Academic Achievement Award for the highest graduation rates among all Division I schools in three of his last five years at Boston College. Gladchuk led the Alumni Stadium expansion effort, which resulted in a $35 million improvement to the football stadium. Prior to rejoining Boston College, Gladchuk served as AD at Tulane University from 1987-90. During his tenure, he directed the reinstatement of the Green Wave basketball program to Division I status. In addition, he oversaw the construction of new facilities for the athletics administration as well as baseball, track and field and tennis teams after a $25 million athletics campaign was successfully completed. From 1985-87, he served as Associate AD at Syracuse University, heading operations, NCAA compliance, financial aid and facility operations. Gladchuk lettered in football at Boston College and graduated with honors in business management in 1973. He earned a master’s in sports administration from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst in 1974, where he began his career in intercollegiate athletics, including serving for seven years as Director of General Physical Education, Assistant and Associate Athletic Director for the university. He also has served as Director of Athletics and head football coach for the New Hampton (Prep) School in New Hampshire prior to leaving for UMass. He and his wife, Kathy, have four children: John, a graduate of Loyola Marymount; Katie, a graduate of Boston College; Christie, a graduate of Trinity and Julie, a graduate of the University of North Carolina.

The Naval Academy is located in historic Annapolis, the capital of the State of Maryland. Annapolis was founded in 1640 as Anne Arundel Town and later became the first peacetime capital city of the United States of America in 1783.

Annapolis, named to honor Queen Anne of England, was granted a royal charter as a city in 1708. Annapolis can also lay claim to having been a capital of the United States. From November 1783 to August 1784, the Continental Congress met in the State House. It was here that they accepted George Washington’s resignation as commander-in-chief and ratified the Treaty of Paris, which ended the Revolutionary War.

 The Annapolis State Hou in continuous legislative use was here where General Ge resigned his commission in t Army, and where the Treaty the Revolutionary War was r

The colonial heritage of Annapolis is still evident as the city boasts more buildings from the 1700s than any other city in the country.

The heart of downtown Annapolis has also been designated a National Historic District. Many fine examples of colonial architecture, including the State House, Hammond-Harwood House, Chase-Lloyd House and the William Paca House and Gardens, are open to visitors. In August, 2009, Annapolis was named a Top Ten finalist for the International Award for Livable Communities, a competition focused on creating livable communities through sound environmental practices.

Annapolis is located on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay, the largest estuary in the United States. The Chesapeake provides natural environs, sightseeing, sailing, fishing and more, helping Annapolis become the sailing capital of the world. The water-lover will also revel in the fact that Maryland has nearly 4,000 miles of shoreline – more than any other state. Within 30 minutes of Annapolis lies both Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, providing entertainment and sightseeing opportunities for residents and tourists alike.

Over 90 percent of funding support for the NAAA programs is through external sources of revenue (i.e. Blue & Gold memberships, ticket sales, corporate sponsorship, television revenue, parking, etc.). Less than 10 percent of the operating budget for the varsity and junior varsity programs is provided by the Academy via government funding.

Securing tickets to Army-Navy and Notre Dame is as easy as A ... B ... C ...

A ssure yourself tickets to the biggest

games of the year. Navy opens the season on September 3 against Delaware and plays host to Air Force on October 1 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. The Army-Navy football game is December 10 at FedExField in Landover, Md.

Therefore, the Blue & Gold memberships are critical in providing our teams with the supplemental dollars necessary to close the “resource gap” between the Naval Academy teams and our Division I competition. Your support is critical to our continued success.

B ecoming a Blue & Gold member is the

best way to secure tickets to the games. Season ticket holders that are Blue & Gold members receive top priority when it comes to location of seats.

Membership in the Blue & Gold contributes to 120 years of supporting the Brigade of Midshipmen and is the Margin of Athletic Excellence funding for all 45 teams!

C lub Level seats are assured to Admiral’s Row members of the Blue & Gold. Admiral’s Row members are the only ones assured of receiving Club Seats, and each member at this level is entitled to purchase four (4) Club Level seats to the game. TAX INFORMATION Since your membership includes an option to purchase tickets, 80 percent of your membership is tax deductible. Only the individual paying for the membership is eligible to take the tax deduction. The Blue & Gold members will receive a receipt for tax purposes at the end of the year.
