Squads get early start for SandhurstAll nine squads from 2nd Regiment began marksmanship training on Range 11 Oct. 15 in preparation for the 2015 Sandhurst Military Skills Competition. The first day of training focused on zeroing weapons and will continue with rifle and pistol training.
A year ago at this time most cadets weren’t even thinking about the Sandhurst Competition, let alone training for it. Not anymore.
“This is a big change from years’ past because we now have our squads training at the start of first semester instead of at the end,” Class of 2015 Cadet Lance Barrow, the Sandhurst commander, said.
Barrow said the Sandhurst staff has opened the marksmanship ranges and facilitated resources for the 36 squads that are already several weeks into a dedicated training schedule.
The advantage, Barrow said, is that first semester training can focus more on basic skills before tackling advanced and difficult tasks later.
“Really, one of our big emphases for first semester is on physical fitness, land navigation, marksmanship and many of those tasks that require individual proficiency,” Barrow said. Read More

Behind 28 saves from sophomore goaltender Parker Gahagen, the Army Hockey team shut out visiting Canisius, 3-0, Oct. 18 at Tate Rink. It was the third-straight season the Black Knights have blanked the Griffs.
Army (2-2-0 overall, 2-2-0 AHA) responded after a tough loss Oct. 17 with a great effort in its first shut out of the season.
Sophomore forward C.J. Reuschlein, freshman forward Brendan McGuire and senior defenseman Maurice Alvarez each scored for the Black Knights, while Alvarez and McGuire recorded multi-point games by adding an assist each.
Rookie forward Tyler Pham continued his hot start with another assist and has points in all four games for Army.
The Golden Griffins (2-2-0, 1-1-0 AHA) got 27 saves from Keegan Asmundson, but couldn’t solve Gahagen. Read More
