2011 PREVIEW

The Navy men’s heavyweight rowing team enters the spring of 2011 with high hopes and a wealth of returning talent. The Midshipmen return five members, plus coxswain Nate Miller, to its first varsity boat. Navy also brings back six members of its second varsity boat as well as its entire third boat.

“We have a number of people back this year,” said Navy head coach Rick Clothier. “We have four boats-plus of athletes right now.” Miller, who is entering his third season with the first varsity crew, was elected captain of this year’s team. “I believe Nate Miller is just the second coxswain to be named captain here in my 37 years – so that speaks more loudly than my words,” said Clothier. “His heart is in it and he is a very adept leader.” Miller joins Stephen Betzler, who will be in the fourth seat, as the only returning seniors in this year’s first varsity boat. “Stephen has grown tremendously in his ability and toughness,” said Clothier. “Each year he has gotten better. He is rowing his best right now.” The remaining returning members of the first varsity boat all come from the junior class. Matt Fluhr is the stroke,Will Race is in the fifth seat, Kyle Browne is in the sixth seat and Chris Gear is in the seventh seat.

“Last year, we invested a lot in four sophomores and they were our stern four,” said Clothier. “These guys are all back from last year and that’s where it begins to happen – where a rhythm is established. You want guys who are leaders, both as racers and through the training cycles, and these guys did a wonderful job of that.”

The three newcomers to this year’s first varsity crew are all sophomores – Alex Lizotte, Chris Chang and Ted Baumgardner – that rowed together last year in the first freshman boat. As always, a challenging schedule awaits the Mids this spring. Navy will open the season with the Georgetown Invitational on April 9-10. Navy will face traditional rowing powers Cornell and Syracuse for the Goes Cup on April 16 in Ithaca, N.Y., and follow with the race for the Adams Cup against Harvard and Penn on April 23 in Philadelphia, Pa. The Midshipmen will meet Columbia and George Washington in a neutral-site race in Princeton, N.J., on April 30 in their last competition before the Eastern Sprints on May 15. This year’s IRA National Championship Regatta will take place on June 2-4 in Camden, N.J.

NAVY MEN’S HEAVYWEIGHT CREW HISTORY

One of the oldest sports at the Naval Academy, the crew program began over 135 years ago when intramural crews raced in craft similar to whale boats. A gale carried the Navy boathouse and equipment away in 1877 and it wasn't until 1892 that the sport resurfaced at the Academy under the leadership of future noted American author Winston Churchill. In 1893, Navy purchased its first eight-oared shell from contributions made by the Brigade of Midshipmen. A year later, a new boathouse was built and two new eights added. Navy began to row against outside competition again in 1897, beating Pennsylvania in a three-length victory over a three-mile course. The crews were given a new boathouse at the mouth of Dorsey Creek in 1899 at a site not far from the present Navy rowing facilities. For the next two decades, there was a buildup of intercollegiate competition that was broken by World War I. In 1907, Navy made its first appearance in the Poughkeepsie Regatta, today's IRA, finishing third. For five years around the turn of the century, Navy had a new coach each year, including the well-known Jim Ten Eyck. Finally in 1904, some stability was infused when Richard A. Glendon took over and laid the groundwork for Navy’s winning heritage. When World War I ended in 1919, Glendon had more men out for the sport than he

could seat in shells. Thus, he was able to come up with his strongest eight, recording an undefeated season. A year later, Navy lost only to Syracuse but rebounded to defeat the Orangemen in the National Regatta in Worcester, Mass., thus earning the right to represent the United States in the 1920 Olympics in Belgium. Navy rowed to the Olympic Gold Medal by driving past Great Britain in the final 500 meters. The Midshipmen who rowed in the boat were the toast of the Brigade and in 1921 and '22, Navy won the Poughkeepsie Regatta. A year later, young Dick Glendon took over for his father as Navy crew coach and the Midshipmen responded with an undefeated season, but were second at Poughkeepsie to a

Western crew, Washington. The younger Glendon directed Navy to another unbeaten season in 1925 and its third varsity championship in five years at Poughkeepsie. After the season, he departed for Columbia. Navy crews for the next several years were thwarted in their endeavors, just missing wins in several key races, but winning at Poughkeepsie in 1931. In 1932, Buck Walsh stepped in as head coach and the Midshipmen once more were among the eastern powers, winning the IRA in 1938. The war years of the 1940s were lean for Navy crew and saw several opponents drop the sport and the cancellation of the Poughkeepsie Regatta for four years. There was one spark

when in 1947, the Mids were the Poughkeepsie winners. In 1950, Walsh passed away, and the reins of Navy's crew program being handed to his close coaching associate, Russell “Rusty” Callow. Callow became a popular figure at the Academy. After winning only one race in 1951, his varsity crew went unbeaten in 1952, '53 and '54. The 1952 eight was the U.S. Olympic crew and went on to claim a gold medal in Helsinki, Finland. During those three seasons, the Navy crews won 23 consecutive collegiate races (29 races overall) and three-straight lRA Varsity Eight Championships. In 1960, Callow was succeeded by Louis Lindsay. His crew that year finished second at the IRA, but a week later reversed its placing and beat California to win the Olympic Trials and the right for a Naval Academy eight to once again represent the United States in the Olympics. Navy and the University of California are the only two rowing organizations to have been the U. S. eight-oared representative three times in the Olympic Games. In the 1960s, Navy continued to vie for national honors under Paul Quinn, who had taken over from Lindsay. The Mids won the Eastern Sprints in 1961 and the Varsity Challenge Cup at the IRAs in 1965. In 1969, Carl Ullrich became the mentor at The Boathouse. The man who later would become Assistant Director of Athletics at Navy, Director of Athletics at Army and Executive Director of the Patriot League, guided the Midshipmen to the Eastern Sprints title in 1971. In 1974, one of Ullrich's former plebe coaches, Rick Clothier, returned to the Academy as head coach. Under Clothier, Navy has added another starry chapter to its crew history. The varsity eight has placed among the top-six crews at the IRA 15 times over the last two decades, winning the championship three times and placing second five times. Also in that time frame, the second varsity won its event at the IRA five times and placed second three times. In addition, the Midshipmen have won the Jim Ten Eyck Trophy for overall team performance at the IRA seven times in 27 years, while placing second eight times. In fall competition, the Midshipmen have finished in the top five in the Championship Eight Event at the prestigious Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston in 13 of the past-27 seasons, including a string of four-consecutive championship titles in the 1980s. Navy has recorded the top collegiate finish in this race in 13 of the past-23 years. Navy has finished first or second in the Championship Eight event at Philadelphia's Head of the Schuylkill Regatta in 16 of the past-21 years, including eleven first-place finishes. In addition, 28 Navy oarsmen since 1980 have been members of United States national teams representing their school and country in world-wide competitions, including the Olympic and Pan American games.

At the Naval Academy, beating Army is important. Plebes yell “Beat Army!” in Bancroft Hall, “Beat Army!” is on every weight in the Naval Academy weight rooms, and alums and fans alike scream “Beat Army!” at the end of Blue & Gold, the Naval Academy’s alma mater.

Jess Palacio, Women’s Track

Navy has dominated Army in all sports, posting a winning record against the Black Knights in 36 of the last 39 years and winning the N-Star series 14-consecutive years. Navy has claimed the overall series win in 17 of the last 18 seasons.

23 of Navy’s 32 varsity sports have the potential to take part in the Army-Navy rivalry each year.

The annual showdown between the two rivals in each sport is deemed the Star Game with the players from the winning team receiving a Star for their lettersweaters. For those sports that face Army multiple times in a season, the Star Game isdesignated prior to the start of the year.

As the undergraduate college of the Naval service, the Naval Academy prepares young men and women to become professional officers 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 reserve 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 18 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 responsiblities 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 XXXII and 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:-

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

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 Navy football team gathered for the traditional singing of the Blue & Gold following its win over Air Force in 2009, its seventh-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.

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 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.

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 when the Academy observes Morning Colors and also 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.

Located on Dorsey Creek just a few hundred yards from the Severn River, construction of “The Boathouse” was completed in 1930 and was designed to accommodate Navy’s lone men’s rowing team of 40 members. Since then, however, an additional two teams have been added to the program and the number of athletes competing has increased five-fold to its present day 200 rowers.

To accomodate this increase, the three-story building has undergone several remodeling efforts over the years. In October 2009, Hubbard Hall began its $16-million reconstruction process that is expected to be finished by Fall 2011.

Once completed, the facility will include the following state-of-the-art amenities: • Renovated shell storage area and new small boats’ bay

• Larger locker rooms for both the men and women’s teams

• 16-person, state-of-the-art, motor-driven, indoor rowing tank

• Three erg/training rooms holding 100 ergometers • New video/team meeting room and industrial laundry facility

• Renovated Banquet and Trophy room with balcony overlooking College Creek

• Expanded offices for the entire Navy coaching staff

• New workshop for rowing shell repair

• Three separate visiting team locker areas

• Cardio/weight area for maintenance training

• Repaired and expanded wharf and floating dock system

• New geo-thermal heating and cooling system

FIRST-RATE FACULTY & STAFF The Naval Academy's philosophy of education stresses attention to individual students by highly qualified faculty members who are strongly committed to teaching. Classes are small, with an average size of fewer than 18 students and a student-faculty ratio of 8:1. All courses at the Naval Academy are taught and graded by faculty members, not by graduate assistants.

 Women’s soccer’s Shelley Moeller (‘10) was a Third-Team Academic All-America honoree in 2009. Moeller was also a member of the Navy’s women’s lacrosse team.

Our 600-member faculty is an integrated group of officers and civilians in nearly equal numbers. Officers bring fresh ideas and experiences from operational units and staffs of the Navy and Marine Corps. The academy's civilian faculty members give continuity to the educational program and form a core of professional scholarship and teaching experience. Working together closely, these military and civilian faculty member form one of the strongest and most dedicated teaching faculties of any college or university in the United States.

MAJORS Students at the Naval Academy can select one of 53 different majors within 22 fields of study. The 22 fields of study are grouped into three different divisions: Division of Engineering and Weapons (aerospace engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, general engineering, mechanical engineering, Naval architecture, ocean engineering), Division of Math and Science (chemistry, computer science, general science, information technology, mathematics, oceanography, physics) and the Division of Humanities and Social Science (Arabic, Chinese, economics, English, history, political science, quantitative economics). In addition to graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science, students can attain a minor in one of seven different languages.

 Beth Reed (‘10) was a First-Team Academic All-America selection for women’s soccer. Reed also played for the Navy women’s basketball team.

Students who excel at the Naval Academy have many opportunities to challenge and advance themselves through several special programs -- Trident Scholars, Honors Programs, and Voluntary Graduate Education Program (VGEP). Track and field athletes Kayla Sax and Tyrell Arment were part of the 10-member Trident Scholar program’s Class of 2010. SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS In addition to furthering their education at schools across the country, students at the Naval Academy annually are in competition for several prestigious scholarships. Since Navy's first Rhodes Scholar, E. Van Meter ('28), a total of 45 Naval Academy graduates have received the Rhodes Scholarship, including 12 since 2001. Among Navy's most recent recipients is former baseball player Trevor Thompson ('05). 24 grads have won George C. Marshall Scholarships, including 14 since 2000. Standout swimmer Kelly Zahalka ('09) was a recipient of both the Harry S. Truman and Gen. George C. Marshall Scholarships, which paved the way for her to study for two years in the United Kingdom.

 Kayla Sax (‘10) was a recipient of the Gates Cambridge Scholarship, becoming the ninth honoree from the Naval Academy.

Women's track and cross country runner Kayla Sax ('10) became just the ninth student from the Naval Academy to be awarded a Gates Cambridge Scholarship, which will enable her to contribute to research focused on alternative energy sources at the University of Cambridge in the coming year. Both soccer's Beth Reed ('10) and track 's Mark Van Orden ('10) were awarded NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships and will be pursuing graduate degrees before resuming their respective naval careers on a full-time basis.

 Football’s John Dowd (‘12) was a Second-Team Academic All-America honoree in 2009-10.

 Evan Barnes (‘08) is one of four Navy student-athletes to have been honored as First-Team Lowe’s Senior All-America as part of the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award.  Track and field’s Mark Van Orden (‘10) was a

recipient of an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship and will pursue a graduate degree beginning the 2010-11 academic year.

ACADEMIC ALL-AMERICANS Naval Academy student-athletes have totaled 75 Academic All-America certificates over the years, with 42 of those awards coming since the start of the 1999-2000 academic year. USNA student-athletes have garnered eight awards during the 2009-10 academic year. The 2009-10 honorees included women’s soccer first-team selection Beth Reed (‘10), second-team football honoree John Dowd (‘12), women’s soccer third-teamer Shelly Moeller (‘10), first team rifle selections Liz Leckie (‘10) and Kenan Wang (‘11), men’s swimming first-team honoree Alex Buck (‘11), third-team men’s lacrosse selection Joe Lennon (‘10) and men’s track & field first-teamer Mark Van Orden (‘10). In addition to earning first-team status, Reed also became the first Naval Academy Academic All-American to receive the top award for her respective sport, as she was named the Division I Women’s Soccer Academic All-American of the Year – the highest academic honor bestowed upon any Division I women’s soccer student-athlete. GRADUATION SUCCESS RATE For the fifth year in a row, the United States Naval Academy is at the head of the class for graduating NCAA student-athletes on the Division IA level. Navy graduated 100 percent of its student-athletes in 10 of the 20 NCAA sports reported on and averaged an overall rate of 98 percent for student-athletes in all sports – the second-highest mark nationally among Football Bowl Subdivision schools.

LOWE’S SENIOR CLASS AWARD Navy has been well represented in the nomination process for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award, started in 2001 by Dick Enberg in response to the growing trend of men's basketball players leaving school early for the NBA. The award honors the attributes of senior student-athletes in four areas: classroom, community, character and competition. Navy has produced four first-team honorees in their respective sports over the last four years, highlighted by 2008 grad Evan Barnes, who was men’s soccer’s inaugural award winner in 2007. He, women’s basketball player Kate Hobbs ('07), women's soccer's Lizzie Barnes ('08) and men’s lacrosse’s Andy Tormey (‘09) each were named to the Lowe's Senior All-America First Team.

 Kelly Zahalka (‘09) was a recipient of both the Harry S. Truman and Gen. George C. Marshall scholarships.

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 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.
