Academy Meet forms competition, camaraderie between sister academiesSky Dabbing
The fourth annual Inter Service Academy Meet for the West Point Parachute team took place on the parade field April 14-16 at the U.S. Military Academy. Parachutists from the West Point Black Knights and the Air Force Academy’s Wings of Blue went head-to-head during the friendly, yet competitive contest.
The purpose of the dual meet between sister academies is to foster a fun rivalry while gaining skydiving experience.
“It’s a nice chance for all of us to get together and share our experiences,” Head Coach of the Black Knights, Tom Falzone, said. “And it’s just one way to motivate our members a little bit more throughout the year because we only have a few competitions so it kind of gets that blood boiling a little bit sooner.”
The weekend-long competition was comprised of the six-way speed formation, the four-way competition and sport accuracy. Read More
