    A total of 564 competitors, including 36 companies of the U.S. Corps of Cadets and the U.S. Military Academy Preparatory School, entered into the 49th annual Sandhurst Military Skills Competition April 10-11.

    Each team consisted of nine participants, including at least one female per team.

    Included in the makeup of the competitors this year were seven international teams: Britain, Japan, Germany, Qatar, Republic of Korea, Canada and Chile; eight ROTC members, the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and the U.S. Naval Academy.

    Although the competition is cadet directed, the Department of Military Instruction designs and executes a squad military skills competition to provide the Corps of Cadets and visiting teams with a challenging experience focused on tasks that reinforce military science instruction and training.

    Junior third baseman Kasey McCravey homered for the second day and scored twice as Army completed its Patriot League weekend sweep of Boston University after taking a 6-3 decision in the final third game of the series Sunday in Boston.

    The Black Knights swept Saturday’s opening doubleheader (4-0, 13-10) en route to posting their second league sweep this season.

    Army (18-19, 8-4 PL) jumped out to a 3-0 lead on four hits, opening with back-to-back doubles, in the first inning. McCravey led off with a double and scored on Gladys Esparza-Gallegos’ double to right field. Esparza-Gallegos moved up a base on Kristen McPeek’s single to right field and scored on Xiomara Perez’ two-out hit to left field.

    Melanie Russell (2-6) retired nine of the next 10 batters before Army pounded her for four straight hits and three runs in the top of the fifth inning to pad its lead to 6-0. Read More
