Army Water Polo headed to Hamilton College in Clinton New York to compete in the Collegiate Water Polo Association's New York Division Tournament. The Army Team dominated all three of their games during the weekend and are headed to Nationals at the University of Arizona during the upcoming Veterans Day Weekend. Army's first game on Saturday was against New York University. While NYU played well, they couldn't stop the Army Team from pulling away. The Army defense, and especially goalie and team captain, Jeff Stark, stopped NYU in their tracks. The final score was Army 21, NYU 3. After a motivating first game, Army came back ready to take on Syracuse in their second game of the day. Army took down Syracuse with a 16-4 win and prepared for their final game on Sunday. Army went into their toughest game of the weekend on Sunday morning, against Cornell, looking to take home the title of Division Champions. Cornell fought hard, but Army earned the lead early and kept it throughout the game for a final score of 9-6.
Sydney Witham and Erynn Johns of the Army West Point women's soccer team were named to the All-Patriot League Tournament team after the championship game on Sunday. After qualifying for the league tournament for the first time since 2014, the sixth-seeded Black Knights earned a 1-0 victory over third-seed Navy in double overtime. It was Army's first tournament win since the 2011 championship game and snapped a four-game winless streak against the Mids that dated back to 2013. Witham captained the back line for the Black Knights as she has done all season, playing 187 of the team's 192 postseason minutes. The Crown Point, Ind., native dished out her third assist of the year on the game-winning goal of the quarterfinals at Navy. Read More

"Good afternoon everybody. I am glad to be able to celebrate a victory from this past weekend. It was a hard-fought battle as so many of those rivalry games are. I am proud of our guys for finding a way to win and giving us a chance to play for the trophy in a few weeks. It is nice to know that it is retained here, but you are just the safe keeper if you don't win them both. It is nice to have that first step taken in that rivalry.
"I thought we played really hard. We certainly didn't play perfect. There are a lot of things from Saturday's game we would like to do better. We managed to win the game and that was what was important. Looking ahead to this next one, we are seeing how we can get better as a team. I told our team that is the challenge for us, to try and improve and to play our very best football for this time of year. We made some mistakes Saturday that we shouldn't be making at this time of the year so hopefully we improve on those things and play better this week." Read More

In a Patriot League Tournament match that came down to penalty kicks, it was the Army West Point men's soccer team celebrating in the end after Ibrahim Seye netted the game-winning strike to put the Black Knights past Boston U. on Tuesday night at Nickerson Field.
"This was one of those games as a coach where I didn't really have to say or do very much," head coach Russell Payne said. "The guys were extremely focused from the warmup to the final whistle. In the spirit of our Army brothers on the gridiron, we had to lay down and bleed a little bit, but we got up, kept fighting on, and we persevered. This was an important win for us."
Army was victorious after winning 5-4 on penalty kicks and will head to the semifinal round of the Patriot League Tournament to take on top-seeded Loyola in Baltimore on Friday at 4 p.m. Read More

Captain Kate Alfin, an International Division Instructor in the West Point Department of History, traveled to N'Djamena, Chad in support of the National Defense University and U.S. Department of State's African Military Education Program (AMEP). This program brings together instructors from the U.S. and African military institutions to design faculty development programs in military academies across the African continent. CPT Alfin traveled to Chad with Dr. John Hagen (former West Point SOSH instructor) and worked with four instructors at le Groupement des Ecoles Militaries Interarmées (GEMIA) in N'Djamena to develop faculty training programs at their respective schools. While there, CPT Alfin and Dr. Hagen attended the graduation ceremony for the Chadian officer school in GEMIA.
The Army West Point Paintball team competed in a tournament in Coventry. This was the first tournament of the season, and the Cadets came out firing on all cylinders capturing a victory in their first match of the day. However, the compounded effects of youth, inexperience, and extremely cold weather took its toll on the team, and they dropped the remaining matches to finish seventh overall. Having a young team, this event was the first time most of them ever played in organized competitive paintball. Team Captain Jake Gerak '20, I-2 put forth a solid series of matches and was the rock upon which the team relied throughout. Expect more great things from him and the rest of the team as they work their way towards Nationals in April.
The Plebe Halloween Dance took place in Riverside Café. There was about 750 Plebes from the class of 2022 in attendance for this event. Everyone who attended came in costume. The costume contest was held around 2130 and there was lots of participation.
The winners were: COL Ostlund (Spirit Attire/ As per Class) – Catherin Hoffman.
Clown (Scariest) – Harrison Mills laziz Gohar, Kirsten Coombes.
Cowboys and Horses (Most Creative) – Daniel Alaimo, Jack Machorek, Evan Zhang, and Nick Isenhower.
