    The 11th-ranked Army West Point rifle team set a program record with an aggregate mark of 4,682 in its season-opener on Saturday. Despite the program feat, the Black Knights fell to Great America Rifle Conference (GARC) foe No. 2 Kentucky, which shot a score of 4,709.
    Army shot its portion of the match virtually in the Tronsrue Marksmanship Center, while Kentucky competed at their own range in Lexington, Kentucky.
    “This is a weird situation to be in,” said Army head coach Web Wright. “We set a program record, but I was expecting a higher score based on the performances we’ve seen over the last couple of weeks.”
    All of Army’s scorers in smallbore had marks above 577. Read More

    The Army West Point volleyball team saw its first action of 2020, claiming two 3-0 victories over the Coast Guard Academy Saturday in New London, Connecticut.
    After several intersquad scrimmages at Gillis Field House, the matches marked the first time the Black Knights were able to compete against another team since the COVID-19 outbreak that led to the postponement of the NCAA volleyball season.
    The day was a great opportunity for Army’s 12-member freshmen class to see their first competitive action, and they piled up the statsheet.
    Freshman outside hitter Allanah Cutler was Army’s top scorer on the day, recording five kills in the first contest and a team-leading eight kills in match two. Freshman setter Isabella Sullivan was the team’s top setter on the day, leading the team with 11 assists in game one and 14 assists in match two. Read More
