Women’s Cross Country Post Strong Result at Paul Short RunThe Army West Point Women’s Cross Country Team put in a strong performance en route to a seventh place finish at the 47th Paul Short Run for the program's best finish since 1997. The Black Knights had a score of 302 with a total time of 1:45.49 (21:10 avg) to place in seventh, ahead of rival Navy. Army also finished ahead of George Washington, Boston University, and La Salle who all are ranked in their respective regional polls.

Georgia Jones, who was tabbed as this week's Patriot League Female Runner of the Week, set a program-best time at a 6K race with a time of 20:14.6 to place ninth out of 342 runners. Classmate Helen Shearer was close by with a personal record time of 20:28.5 which was good enough for 18th. Army was one of four schools to place two runners in the top-20 (Northern Arizona, Villanova, Georgetown).

This was probably the best women's team performance we have ever had at this meet. It is annually a crucible of competitive talent with some of the best teams in the country lining up to see where they stack up nationally. In each race, almost 400 people representing 40 teams to the starting line, and when the gun goes off it is a massive crush of people all running to their limit. For us to finish 7th in that field is as significant a team performance as I can remember. We normally hope to be in the top 20 so this is something pretty special. Read more.

Q&A with Football’s Cole TalleyQ: Why did you decide to attend West Point?

CT: My girlfriend's dad and my uncle both went to the Naval Academy, and they spoke positively about their experiences at Service Academies. Then I came up here for a visit, and I was here for a camp over the summer. It was really fun, and I liked the campus and the coaches. It was absolutely the best opportunity I had.

Q: Aside from football, what's been your favorite part of West Point?

CT: One hundred percent meeting all the people that I've met here. Sometimes I think to myself if I went to a different school, not the Academy, I wonder what would have happened. I feel like this place has made me grow as an individual and as a man through all the people that I've met. I wouldn't be anywhere without them, especially the guys on the team.

Q: What's been your favorite non-football memory at the Academy?

CT: The summers here. Because we're taking summer classes, we spend the summer up here and it's so fun. We take trips to New York City. It's nice to be up here and be secluded because it helps us build relationships. Read more.

History of the Military Art, 1900 to Present, cadets had a hands on experience with history. Using historical weapons from the WWII, cadets were asked to describe how each weapon represented changes in warfare in the 20th century.

The combination of course learning objectives with team based learning and briefing exercises prepares our cadets for their future roles as leaders in the Army.
