Wilkinson Earns Individual Sportsman of the Year Distinction
3/18/2020

Wilkinson Earns Individual Sportsman of the Year DistinctionFirstie alternate captain Alex Wilkinson of the Army West Point Hockey team has been named the Atlantic Hockey Association Individual Sportsman of the Year, announced by the league on Wednesday.

"Wilky is such a natural fit for this award," said head coach Brian Riley. "He plays the game the right way and he respects other players and officials. It's amazing with the amount of ice time that he plays that he has only had one penalty in the last two years. It's a true testament to his character and why he is such a worthy recipient."

Wilkinson is the third Black Knight to claim the individual sportsmanship honor in program history and the second in three seasons. Ryan Nick earned the award in 2017, while Chris Garceau was also a recipient in 2005.

The Raleigh, N.C., native is one of the team's alternate captains this season. Arguably one of Wilkinson's greatest accomplishments is his ability to stay out of the penalty box. After playing in 67 games, he recorded just one penalty in the past two seasons and zero during his senior campaign.

Wilkinson was one of seven Cadets to play in all 33 games this year. He scored four goals, two on the power play, and dished out nine assists for 13 points. Wilkinson posted 50 blocks as well.

The defenseman finishes his career with 17 goals and 59 assists for 76 points in 132 games played. Wilkinson also had eight power play goals and four game-winners. The senior graduates with just nine penalties in his four years wearing an Army sweater.

Army's Brian Riley Reflects on 'What If' In a Season Lost To COVID-19
3/18/2020

Army's Brian Riley Reflects on 'What If' In a Season Lost To COVID-19Despite Army Hockey's handicap of recruiting for a service academy, there was something magical going on at West Point this season for Brian Riley's Black Knights of the Hudson. "I remember in early in the year, maybe in October/November, looking around and say to myself, 'This group can do something special,'" Riley said.

His gut feelings were manifested with 13 wins before the end of the calendar year, including emotional victories over Union and AIC as well as road sweeps at Holy Cross and Canisius. An out-of-conference conquest of UNH vaulted the Cadets into the USCHO Poll, making for a well-deserved New Year's celebration up at West Point.

Firsties were carrying the offensive load up front, as Dominic Franco and Michael Wilson combined for 21 goals, and junior defenseman John Zimmerman distributed a team-leading 17 helpers. They proudly represented Atlantic Hockey out in the desert at the Fortress Invitational in Las Vegas, taking two ranked opponents to the limit before falling. But an injury bug stung the Knights in February, as Wilson missed a half-dozen games and classmate Zach Evancho sat for 11. Army's hot start, and their emotional shootout win over Sacred Heart late in the year, gave them just enough cushion to earn home ice and a bye for the Atlantic Hockey playoffs. The extra layoff allowed Riley's Knights to finally get healthy.

"It was the first time all year we had our full lineup," Riley said about his prep for a quarterfinal versus Niagara. "We felt really good about our practices; our fans were really looking forward to it."

And then the ball dropped. Riley and his cadets suffered what dozens of NCAA teams went through when individual leagues canceled their championship tournaments when the NCAA pulled the plug on March Madness. "I remember not being shocked because of how fluid everything was," Riley said, "but I knew I had to tell the team the season was over. "I remember feeling terrible for our seniors. Their heads dropped and you could see tears coming down their faces. At the end, it was them hugging each other." Read more.

All Army West Point Athletics Events Cancelled
3/16/2020

All Army West Point Athletics Events CancelledThe Army West Point Athletic Association has officially announced the cancellation of all remaining athletic events for the 2019-20 season. 

Due to the increased concerns around COVID-19, Army Athletics is in alignment with the NCAA and Patriot League decisions to immediately suspend all athletic activities for all teams.

"We all have the core instinct to fight and to compete, but it has reached the point where competing under the current conditions may bring us more harm than good," Athletic Director Mike Buddie said. "Our number one concern is the health and safety of our cadet-athletes, coaches, staff and their families. The decision to suspend all practices and competitions helps to promote social distances and has the potential to prevent the spread of the virus. While we are saddened that our Firsties' careers have unexpectedly come to a close, we know that they will grow from these extraordinary circumstances and will become excellent leaders of character for the United States Army.

Additional local information on the 'Novel Coronavirus' and preventative measures can be found on the West Point Garrison & Community and Keller Army Community Hospital pages.

Fans who have already purchased tickets for upcoming competitions will be refunded through the Army West Point Ticket Office. Refund credit transaction timing may vary by bank. A Ticket Office representative will be contacting all accounts that purchased tickets.

Center for Molecular Science Works to Protect
3/10/2020

Center for Molecular Science Works to ProtectThe U.S. Military Academy's Center for Molecular Science conducts research into a wide variety of fields.

Everything is made up of molecules, so the areas of research are considerably more vast than the tiny particles being studied in the center.

To Col. John Burpo, the head of the academy's department of chemistry and life science, which CMS is a part of, the many research projects being conducted in the center can all be wrapped up into a single goal. The researchers in the Center for Molecular Science are working to find ways to keep Soldiers safe and then treat those who get injured.

This includes research into lightweight power and energy, wounded warrior care, sensors to detect roadside bombs and more.

"Molecules are really the vehicle by which all of the work is done," Burpo said. "If you're talking about biology and life science, those molecules makeup cells, tissues and the like. Those molecules are the things that make up a 3D porous nanomaterial for a fuel cell. Those molecules are the things that make up a sensor to pick up on explosive compounds." Read more.

G&EnE Revives the Geology Field Course
3/6/2020

As demand for EV388A grew, the Environmental Program faculty searched for innovative ways to address the increased enrollment as well as to enhance cadet learning. This ultimately led to the creation of EV399A, the Geology Field Course, in 1990. EV399A also fulfills the Academic Individual Advanced Development (AIAD) graduation requirement. The three-week course was originally designed so that the first week was spent at West Point and the remaining two weeks at the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA). The week at West Point focused on establishing the geologist’s toolkit for experiential learning. The two weeks in Colorado enabled a wide variety of hands-on geology experiences, which are difficult to replicate in the Northeast. Additionally, the course provided a platform for a joint learning environment, with USAFA and USMA instructors teaching the course to cadets from both academies. EV399A ran continuously from 1990 until 2006, when the course was placed on hold due to curriculum changes at USAFA and increasingly prohibitive travel costs.

They then got a chance to talk to a technical producer for a new off-Broadway production called Emojiland that is likely going to make some big news this next year for its innovative use of mapping and laser scanning technology on the set.

Finally, the Cadets were thrilled to see Dear Evan Hansen and got some signatures by the stage door after the show. During a bit of free time, Cadets explored the city, some going to the Museum of Modern Art and others to Rockefeller Center.

The Warrington, Pa., native followed that performance with a career night in a thrilling 80-79 road win at Lehigh on Saturday. Funk poured in a career-high 33 points on 10-of-14 shooting to go with seven assists and five rebounds.

New Women’s Handball Members Gain ExperienceWest Point Women’s Handball traveled to Warminster, PA to play against the Philadelphia new Women’s Team Handball Club.

This new club doesn’t have enough players to meet the minimum required by the Northeast Team Handball League, so they had to withdraw from the league. West Point traveled there to help them build up their team and give their new members (and ours) the opportunity to compete and learn the sport.

Philadelphia won 32 to 27 as West Point played inexperienced players in several various positions to give them some experience.

There was great camaraderie between the teams, and they are looking forward to the Philadelphia team to continue to grow and compete at the Open National Championship in May.

After the match, the West Point cadets stopped at Valley Forge on the way back to USMA to explore some of the US Army’s first barracks and see where the Continental Army had its base camp during the Revolutionary War.
