Zac McGraw, Keenan O'Shea and Tyler Mitchiner of the Army West Point men's soccer team all received All-Patriot League honors on Monday afternoon. McGraw and O'Shea collected first team accolades, while Mitchiner earned third team recognition. It is the first time since 2014 that at least two Cadets were placed on the all-league first team. For the third straight year, McGraw was a first team recipient as the cow defender appeared in 14 matches and captained the back line for the Black Knights. He handed out three helpers this season, including an assist on the game-winner versus Lafayette.
O'Shea broke out offensively during his junior campaign and led the Patriot League in goals (11) and points (26). A third team all-league player a season ago, O'Shea returned for his third year and was the only player in the league to reach the double-digit goal threshold this season. The Chesterfield, Va., native notched a pair of multi-goal contests and recorded at least one point in 12 of the 17 games he appeared in. His pair of goals in the regular season finale against American gave Army the win and sent the Black Knights into the Patriot League Tournament. Mitchiner received his first all-league honors after tallying a goal and two assists in his third year on the Banks of the Hudson. His lone goal of the year was the game-winner against Lafayette. The Clearwater, Fla., native also dished out assists opposite Bucknell and Holy Cross.
Army will take on Boston U. in the quarterfinals of the Patriot League Tournament tonight at 7 p.m. in Boston.
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

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 Army West Point rifle team was defeated by North Carolina State in their match at the University of Kentucky on Saturday. "It's been a rough two days," Head Coach Web Wright said. "Scores were lower than expected. Certainly not where we need to be." The Black Knights outscored the Wolfpack in air rifle, but it was not enough to overcome their deficit from smallbore, as North Carolina state won with an aggregate advantage of 4649 to 4634. Army firstie co-captain Payne Nunn was the team's top performer, shooting a program record score of 597 in air rifle. "The bright spot was Payne's air rifle score today," Wright said. "His 597 is the highest score a cadet has ever shot in competition. He has reached this mark a couple times in practice, so it's good to see him punch through the mental barrier and make it happen."

"Good afternoon. This is another week of getting prepared for an opponent we've not seen before and don't know a whole lot about. Gosh, they have a good football team. They play in the same league as Lafayette, the team we played on Saturday, and I was really glad to get a win. Frankly it didn't feel like we played as well as we are capable of. Credit Lafayette. They did a nice job of controlling the football on offense against us. They were letting the time tick down and really kept the ball away from us. We had some really good individual plays and some plays that I'd like to get back and do over again. Hopefully we'll play a lot better. Once again, I thought Lafayette did a great job and now we're playing the number one team in their league in Colgate on Saturday. Read More
