From the Athletic Director, the lacrosse team won its second straight conference game, earning a 10-4 road victory at Colgate. It was the team’s first win in Hamilton since 2006, and moved Army into a tie for third place in the Patriot League standings. John Glesener was named the conference’s Offensive Player of the Week, goalkeeper Sam Somers picked up his second Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Week award, and defenseman Brendan Buckely was the conference’s Defensive Player of the Week. The softball team opened its Patriot League schedule by splitting four games with Colgate, and thus put the team into a tie for third in the conference standings.
On the track, Nick Snoad was the Patriot League Field Athlete of the Week after winning the hammer throw at the Dick Shea Open. His throw of 62.8 meters was the second-best throw in Academy history and the best by an Army athlete since 1996. It is the top mark in the league and the third best in the NCAA East Region this season. Kyler Martin won his second straight Patriot League Track Athlete of the Week honor by running the Academy’s fifth-fastest 110-meter hurdle time and winning the event in 14.24 seconds. Jacob Drozd also posted a historical performance, winning the javelin with a throw of 63.42 meters, the fifth best in Academy history.
