After a victory in her collegiate debut, Army West Point plebe Shelby Piccinic, a member of the women's cross country team, has been selected as the Patriot League Rookie of the Week. "Shelby ran a very controlled race and did a nice job of finishing strong," head coach Mike Smith said. "She had a very successful high school career and is a nice addition to the team." Piccinic led the way for the Black Knights in a 15-50 win over Maine with a time of 19:25.2. The team took the top-11 spots in the race.

Army West Point football head coach Jeff Monken met with members of the local media on Tuesday afternoon for his weekly press conference inside Nowak Auditorium. The Black Knights are preparing to host Liberty for their home opener at Michie Stadium on Saturday.
(Ref.: opening statement)
"Good afternoon everybody. We are getting prepared for a new week. Frankly I am glad. That was difficult to swallow on Friday, getting beat by Duke like we did. What a great job Coach Cutcliffe has done. They were very well prepared. I felt like we were not as well prepared as I hoped we would be. It was disappointing to lose, especially to a team that we beat here a year ago at home. Credit to those guys who made some really good plays. Their quarterback is special and their receivers hit the long balls against us. Our turnovers killed us, especially early. Those are costly. We didn't play like the team I think we can be.
It's really impressive what Coach Gill and his team have done, moving from FCS to FBS. Going on the road a year ago to open the season by beating Baylor and controlling the football game, to opening at home this season and beating Old Dominion who is an old team. They handled them in the second half with 38 points scored for a lopsided victory. Read More
Following his opening weekend victory, plebe Marshall Beatty has been selected as the Patriot League Rookie of the Week. "Marshall's performance in Maine was not a surprise," head coach Mike Smith said. "He is a strong runner and has looked good in practice. He is a nice addition to the team." Beatty placed first in his Black Knights' debut, pacing the field with a time of 25:31.9. Army took the top-six spots and 15 of the top 16 in its season opening victory over Maine. The win marked the team's fourth straight win over the Black Bears in the season opening dual meet. Army continues its season on September 14, when it hosts the Army Open in Wappingers Falls, N.Y.

The Black Knights are looking to rebound following last Friday's game at Duke as the Army West Point football team welcomes Liberty Saturday in the home opener at Michie Stadium.
The contest will air live on CBS Sports Network; the game can also be heard on the Army Sports Network through the TuneInapp or goarmywestpoint.com.
The Opening Kickoff
Yearling goalkeeper Sydney Cassalia was named the Army West Point Athletic Association Athlete of the Week after an impressive performance at Northern Arizona last weekend. The Omaha, Neb., native posted an 11-save shutout in the team's scoreless draw against the Lumberjacks on Friday evening. It was the second double-digit save performance of Cassalia's career after making a career-high 12 stops against Marshall on Aug. 19. The clean sheet was her third of the season and ninth in her 23-game career.
Cassalia's showing was one of the top goalkeeper performances in recent program history as it was the most saves in a shutout in the last 18 years and the first shutout with double-digit saves since Sept. 11, 2009, when Alex Lostetter made 10 stops in a 1-0 victory over Saint Louis. The Black Knights return home from a two-game road trip to face service-academy rival Air Force on Friday at Malek Stadium at Clinton Field. Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. as the tail end of a doubleheader following the men's soccer game versus Columbia at 5 p.m. Read More
Recently a group from the Department of English and Philosophy took on the West Point Spartan Race to prove that they are notonly scholars but also athletes. Congratulations to these muddy warriors.
Cadets from the Department of History WWI Staff Ride hosted the Australian Consul General, Alastair J. M. Walton, for lunch at the West Point Club. The relationship with him stretches back to a previous visit to West Point when he interviewed with the West Point Center for Oral History. That interview opened the door for Cadets to participate in ANZAC Day this year in New York City. They plan on keeping the "Mateship" alive by continuing to partner with Consul General Walton in the future.
Master Sgt. MaryKay Messenger, Vocalist of the West Point Band, sang the National Anthem at the US Open Tennis Championships 7th Annual Military Appreciation Day September 3rd. During the event, West Point Superintendent LTG Darryl Williams presented a flag to Johnnie Ashe, brother of Arthur Ashe, tennis legend and former West Point tennis coach. In 1968, Johnnie volunteered for a second tour of duty in Vietnam so Arthur could stay at West Point and continue his storied tennis career.
The Army West Point men's tennis team has announced that its tournament this fall, starting on Oct. 28, will be named in honor of Arthur Ashe. Ashe has a special connection to West Point. He was a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army and was stationed at the U.S. Military Academy when he won the 1968 U.S. Open. In addition to his military duties, he was an assistant coach for the Army men's tennis team during his tenure at West Point.
"We're very excited to be naming this tournament that Arthur Ashe Invitational because Arthur Ashe has done a lot for West Point and tennis," Army head men's tennis coach Jim Poling said. "He was a second lieutenant in the Army and he trained and got ready for the U.S. Open here at West Point." This fall marks the 50th anniversary of his victory at Forest Hills, so Army West Point wanted to honor that victory with the naming of the Arthur Ashe Invitational.
"He worked with the team and they all loved him and there are some great stories out there about what he did for them while he was an assistant coach at West Point," Poling said. "He was a great man and we are happy add his name to help build the tournament. It's a great tournament. We have teams from all over the nation every year. "It's unique because the teams live with a family for the weekend and they learn a lot about West Point, so when they leave here, they love it. Not everyone knows about West Point so when these teams come and play in the tournament, they always say it's the best event they have played in." This year's field includes St. Bonaventure, Marist, St. John's, NJIT, UConn and Sacred Heart.

Professor Donald Green from Columbia University recently joined the American Politics Faculty in SOSH to teach a 3-day workshop on conducting field experiments. He taught faculty members how to design experiments effectively and how to analyze the data. The workshop was useful both for faculty members' individual research interests and for course directors as they develop their course assessment plans.

Members of the Robotics Research Center (RRC) in EECS presented a paper in the 2nd International Symposium on Intelligent Unmanned Systems and Artificial Intelligence (SIUSAI) held in Las Vegas, Nevada. The paper titled "Wearable Technologies for Enhanced Soldier Situational Awareness" was authored by Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Korpela (RRC Director) and Major Amber Walker (DARPA Engineer). The paper was the result of a research project which demonstrated the application of gesture control for remotely operating robots using wearable technology. The paper was presented at the conference by Mr. Pratheek Manjunath (RRC), who won the 'Best Oral Presentation' award and accepted the 'Best Paper' award on behalf of the authors. The conference was held at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). This provided an opportunity for networking with the robotics researchers at UNLV's Drones and Autonomous Systems Laboratory (DASL). Mr. Manjunath met with Dr. Paul Oh (Director of DASL), who is a pioneer in aerial manipulation using quadcopters.

Yearling Sydney Cassalia of the Army West Point women's soccer team was named the Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Week, the league announced on Monday. Cassalia collected her third weekly league honors after being named rookie of the week twice last season. The Omaha, Neb., native shut out both Air Force and Fairleigh Dickinson this week, posting four saves in each game. She has not allowed a goal in 357:37 dating back to the team's 1-0 setback at Penn on Aug. 26. Cassalia's streak of three consecutive shutouts is the longest streak by an Army goalkeeper since 2011 when Monica Lee had four consecutive clean sheets against American (Oct. 23), Lafayette (Oct. 30), Colgate (Nov. 4) and Navy (Nov. 6). Cassalia has been one of the nation's top goalkeepers throughout the 2018 season, ranking fourth in goalie minutes played (800:00), tied for sixth in shutouts (5), 11th in save percentage (0.918), tied for 16th in total saves (45), 25th in goals-against average (0.450) and 48th in saves per game (5.63).

Cadets carry an American flag today while running through West Point, which is a September 11 tradition at West Point. The runners run from 6 a.m. until 5 p.m. to honor those who perished during the 9/11 terror attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the hero passengers who prevented the plane from crashing into a more populated area by crashing it into a field in Shanksville, PA.
“We can and we will. Ready and forward.”
These words were the mantra that symbolized the vision of the Buffalo Soldiers, a brave and patriotic group of African-American soldiers, who relentlessly fought to defend our country against some of the most insurmountable odds. Sunday, those members who were a part of the 9th and 10th United States Cavalry Regiments, who once served at West Point, were honored at a special annual ceremony, saluting their everyday heroic efforts that forever transformed this country.
First created by the Army Reorganization Act of 1866, the Buffalo Soldiers' early service was on the Western Frontier, engaging in 11 war campaigns. Whether it was in 11 of the campaigns during the Indian (from 1867-1891), Spanish, World War I or II or Korean War, these Buffalo Soldiers-dubbed that nickname by their Indian foes – fought with honor, dignity and loyalty to their country. In 1907, the 9th Cavalry was assigned to West Point. Read More
Behind a pair of first-half scores by yearling Eric Whiteman, the Army West Point men's soccer team defeated Siena, 3-0, on Tuesday afternoon at the Siena Turf Field.
The Black Knights (2-2-1) continued their unbeaten streak versus the Saints (0-3-3) and claimed its second road victory of the season. The Cadets are now 7-0-1 opposite Siena.
"We needed to show a collective effort today and we did," head coach Russell Payne said. "It was great to see guys step up and contribute as almost everybody played today. Eric did a great job on both sides of the ball and it was great to see Carter (Kowalewski) get his first goal. But, even more importantly, as a team, we showed a great connectivity and a real sense of purpose."
Justin Stoll quieted the Saints' attack, making four stops in between the pipes for the Black Knights to preserve the shutout for his first of the year. Read More
