• Class of 2018 assumes leadership role for PPW

    The U.S. Military Academy Class of 2018 unveiled its class crest at the Plebe-Parent Weekend Banquet in the Cadet Mess March 14. The class crest has been unveiled at the PPW Banquet since 2013.

    Before the Class of 2018 left for spring break, they had one more task to complete—Plebe-Parent Weekend March 13-15.

    The Class of 2018 planned and executed PPW with a parade review that proved especially challenging from the rain and fog on the apron near Washington Hall March 14. The cadets attended a formal banquet in the evening at the Cadet Mess with Lt. Gen. Joseph Anderson, Class of 1981 and Commanding General, XVIII Airborne Corps and Fort Bragg at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, as guest speaker. Rounding out the evening was the traditional Hop before heading for spring break.

    On the first day of Plebe-Parent Weekend, many cadets completed classes while their family and friends toured West Point at such places as the uniform factory and Kimsey Athletic Center. Read More

    Army (6-3, 2-2 PL) got two goals apiece from Cole Johnson and Jimbo Moore, while John Glesener and Connor Cook tallied two points as each had a goal and an assist.
