WOMEN'S ARMY RUGBY (WAR!) (4-0): Last year in the Virginia Invitational Tournament, we lost to Virginia in the semi-final game. This year was different. Army defeated Princeton 54-0, defeated James Madison 39-0, defeated West Chester 40-0, and played Virginia for the championship. We were tied 0-0 at the half, but Army's conditioning paid off and we won 17-0. The Virginia coach said, "Army was a delight to play! They have great team speed, and it was a clean gorgeous match to watch! The Army gals were gracious winners…"
LACROSSE (4-0): Defeated Lafayette at home 9-2. Army substituted freely in the second half after blowing the game open in the third quarter. Cornell here Saturday – they are ranked above Army.
WOMEN'S BASKETBALL (24-6): In the first round of the Patriot League Tournament, there were 3 upsets, and one of them was #7 seed Lehigh beating #2 Army 57-53. It was that kind of an afternoon. Army's All Patriot-League player, Cara Enright, scored only 4 points on 1 for 11 shooting. And #1 seed Bucknell lost to #8 Colgate! Worse, Holy Cross was the eventual champion – we beat them twice during the season, at home by 30 points. There is an outside chance we may be picked for an at-large bid to the N.I.T. or NCAA tournament.
MEN'S BASKETBALL (15-16): Season over. Lost to Bucknell on their court 68-47 in the league semi-final game. The best record in over 20 years – yes, I know – still a losing campaign. Nevertheless, we do have a solid group of plebes and yearlings who can play at this level, and a good recruiting class coming in.
BASEBALL (3-6): Again, spent the weekend down south where it's warmer. Temperature here this past week has not permitted outdoor practice. Lost two out of three to UNC Greensboro: 1-2, 5-13, and won 9-1.
SOFTBALL (1-8): At the George Washington Classic, it was close, but we lost three tough games. George Washington beat Army 5-4, Longwood won 3-2, and Canisius defeated us 5-4.
MEN'S TENNIS (3-6): Lost at Dartmouth 6-1, but opened Patriot League play with a 5-2 win over Colgate.
WOMEN'S TENNIS (6-8): A strong win over Columbia 4-3, but then lost to Massachusetts 4-3. Routed Hofstra 7-0.
WATER POLO CLUB: At our own invitational tournament, Army defeated Boston U. 9-5 and Coast Guard 13-3. In the final game against Yale, Army's yearling goalie Kyle Davis tied the game in the last second with a half-tank shot, but Yale won in two overtimes 10-9.
WOMEN'S LACROSSE (1-0): Opened the season at Hofstra, and won 21-5.
