    Army West Point Director of Track & Field and Cross Country Mike Smith announced the hiring of Elise “CeCe” Moore to the coaching staff on July 24. Moore will serve as an assistant coach for the men’s and women’s cross country and track & field programs.
    “I feel fortunate that we were able to attract CeCe to West Point,” Smith said. “She is just getting started in her coaching career and comes to us with limited experience, but has demonstrated a strong work ethic as a volunteer at Oklahoma and as a full-time assistant at SIU-Edwardsville. I value work ethic and a willingness to learn above all other qualities and it is clear to me that CeCe possesses both.”
    During her time at SIUE, Moore led the Cougars to new heights with multiple program records. Read More

  • Army-Oklahoma football game canceled for this fall

    The Army West Point athletic department recognizes the Big 12 Conference’s decision to disallow nonconference away games. Given the decision, Army football’s scheduled contest against Oklahoma at Michie Stadium on Sept. 26 has been canceled for this fall.
    “We are disappointed to lose Oklahoma from our schedule this season, however we respect the Big 12’s difficult decision,” Army Director of Athletics Mike Buddie said. “I am saddened for our players, coaches, alumni and fans to miss out on what has been such a highly anticipated contest since it was first announced. Given the rapidly changing environment in college athletics, we’ve been working on numerous contingency plans in the event of decisions like this, and have already begun the process of finding a future date to host the Sooners.”
    Army West Point is currently working on an updated football schedule and as it finalizes those plans, the ticket office will reach out next week to current ticket holders with additional information outlining available options to retain account credits for future purchases, convert credits to a 2020 tax-deductible athletic gift or request a refund.

  • A Letter to Army Fans

    Dear Army Fans,

    During these trying times, we have engaged in critical dialogue on the outlook for college athletics for the 2020-21 season, and we continue to assess where Army West Point Athletics fits into that conversation. I know that you all have questions, especially as the fall sports season rapidly approaches, so I want to share some of our planning scenarios with you.
    While the conversation continues throughout the entire sports world, it extends to different boundaries when speaking on behalf of our cadet-athletes. Every decision we make is in cohesion with the academy’s mission to prepare our cadets to be officers in the U.S. Army throughout their 47-month experience at West Point.
    Unlike other programs in America, our cadet-athletes do not get the opportunity to make up for the lost time in their sports. Read More

  • Stephenson named to the Wuerffel Trophy watch list

    By Army Athletic Communications

    Senior linebacker Joe Stephenson was named to the 2020 Wuerffel Trophy Watch List, announced by the organization on July 23. Stephenson was one of 114 named to the list for his accomplishments in academics, athletics and in the community.
    “This is an incredible and well-deserved honor for Joe,” Army football head coach Jeff Monken said. “He exemplifies the very best of the U.S. Military Academy and Army football. Throughout his career, he has been an outstanding role model on and off the field. Being able to balance the rigors of West Point while being a Division I athlete and making time to give back to his community speaks volumes to the type of person Joe is and why he is very deserving of this recognition.”
    The Wuerffel Trophy, known as “College Football’s Premier Award for Community Service,” is presented each February in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Read More
