Navy Basketball - Mids Conclude Three-Game Roadtrip At American

NAVY (11-9 / 1-4) at AMERICAN (9-10 / 1-4)
January 24, 2007 - 8:00 pm (EST)
Bender Arena (4,500) - Washington, D.C.
RADIO: WNAV (1430 AM), WFED (1050 AM)

Navy enters Wednesday's game at American with an 11-9 overall record and 1-4 in the Patriot League following Sunday's emotional 53-50 loss to Army. The game with American will cap off a season-long three-game roadswing for the Mids which, after Wednesday's contest, will have played four of their first six league games on the road. The Mids are aiming to avoid their fifth straight 1-5 league start.

Standing in the way will be an American squad that has had a rollercoaster season all year long. The Eagles are 9-10 overall and are a surprising 1-4 in the Patriot League. American was selected third in the Preseason Patriot League poll, even grabbing a first-place vote, but have limped out of the gates to its 1-4 start. The Eagles started the year 7-2, which included wins over Loyola (Md.), Longwood, Howard and NJIT. However, American is just 2-8 in its last 10 games, which included losses to Longwood, Yale, Maryland, Virginia and Bucknell.

American's most recent outing was a five-point overtime setback to league leader Holy Cross at Bender Arena, 69-64, on Saturday. In that game, Arvydas Eitutavicius scored 24 points off the bench and preseason All-Patriot League selection Andre Ingram added 14 points and six rebounds. American hurt itself with 21 turnovers, a minus-6 rebounding margin and shot just 1-of-8 (.125) in the overtime session.

Navy, meanwhile, suffered through its worst shooting performance of the year in a 53-50 loss to rival Army at Christl Arena on Sunday. The Mids, who trailed by 10 midway through the second half, took a two-point lead with just over five minutes to play, but Army's Corban Bates converted an old-fashioned three-point play and a three-pointer on back-to-back possessions to give Army the lead back for good. Greg Sprink, who led all scorers with 19 points, had a 27-footer at the buzzer rim out that would have sent the game into overtime.

Wednesday will be the 64th meeting between the two local rivals, the eighth-most frequently played rivalry among all Patriot League schools. Navy owns a slim 34-29 advantage, but has won just twice in the last 20 meetings, dating back to Feb. 20, 1988. Navy is just 1-9 in the regular season against the Eagles since American joined the Patriot League prior to the 2001-02 season, but the win came last year in Alumni Hall, 77-68, on Jan. 25. Navy's last win in Washington, D.C., came on Jan. 26, 1991, a 94-82 triumph. American has won the last five games in Washington, D.C., by an average of 12.8 ppg.

    22nd-Ranked Mids Battle EIWA Foe East Stroudsburg Wednesday

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The 22nd-ranked Navy wrestling team will look to extend its four-match winning streak on Wednesday when it plays host to East Stroudsburg at 7:00 pm at Halsey Field House in an EIWA showdown. The Midshipmen have never lost to East Stroudsburg in their 10-match series history.

    The Mids, who own an 8-4 overall record and 4-0 mark against EIWA opponents, are coming off a pair of victories last weekend at North Carolina (25-9) and N.C. State (23-16). Four Midshipmen walked away with wins in both their matches, including eighth-ranked heavyweight Ed Prendergast (St. Louis, Mo.) who claimed wins over then eighth-ranked Spencer Nadolsky of North Carolina, 7-3, and 17th-ranked Jainor Palma in sudden victory. Prendergast owns a 26-5 record and has won seven-consecutive matches, four of those against nationally-ranked competition.

    Senior 184-pounder Antonio Miranda (Eugene, Ore.) not only has won four in a row, he's earned bonus points for the Mids in each of his wins. He kicked things off by earning a technical fall against Elijah Black of Maryland on Jan. 13, followed by three-consecutive major decisions, including wins over UNC's Robert McCarty (20-6) and N.C. State's Jeremy Colbert (16-6). Miranda owns a 17-1 record in bonus-point matches, including an 11-1 mark in major decisions.

    Tenth-ranked Matt Stolpinski (Westfield, Mass.) (174 pounds) is just two wins away from reaching 30 wins in his junior campaign. Boasting a 28-5 record, including a 10-2 dual match mark, Stolpinski has been solid over the last few weeks. Like Miranda, Stolpinski has racked up extra points for the Mids, including a pin against North Carolina's Jake Forestiere last weekend, as well as a technical fall over Jalil Dozier from N.C. State. Stolpinski enters Wednesday's match with a four-match winning streak.

    Sophomore Joe Baker (Poway, Calif.) has been nearly unstoppable since his return to the mat in late December. Baker owns a 15-3 record this year, and since coming back from a leg injury early in the season, he has produced a 12-2 record. He has won four in a row, including an impressive 5-3 win over North Carolina's Evan Sola who was ranked 10th in the country and is a two-time All-American.

    East Stroudsburg enters Wednesday night's match with Navy owning a 1-7 record. The Warriors have dropped matches to Drexel (30-13), Army (24-12), Kent State (35-3), Clarion (26-12), Lock Haven (32-6), Rutgers (20-15) and Millersville (19-18), while their lone win was a 39-6 triumph over Princeton on Jan. 12.

    Projected Lineup
    125 - Alex Usztics, Sr., Dauphin, Pa. (N) vs. Stephen Gambino, So., Glenside, Pa.
    133 - #10 Joe Baker, So., Poway, Calif. (N) vs. John Stout, Gr., Bethlehem, Pa.
    141 - Brad Canterbury, Sr., Blue Bell, Pa. (N) vs. Sean Carr, Jr., Whitehall, Pa.
    149 - Joel Ahern, So., Herkimer, N.Y. (N) vs. Scott Heckman,Jr., Bangor, Pa.
    157 - John Jarred, Sr., Kansas City, Mo. (N) vs. Ben Bishop, Gr., Bethlehem, Pa.
    165 - Justin Jacobs, Jr., LeRoy, Mich. (N) vs. Leif Ruschmeyer, So., Point Pleasant, N.J.
    174 - #10 Matt Stolpinski, Jr., Westfield, Mass. (N) vs. Shane Mallory, Fr., New Providence, N.J.
    184 - Antonio Miranda, Sr., Eugene, Ore. (N) vs. David Williams, Jr., Egg Harbor City, N.J.
    197 - Tyler Moyer, So., Bremerton, Wash. (N) vs. Open

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- After posting a 1-1 record at the season-opening VCU 4+1 Invitational, the Navy tennis team will play host to a pair of teams Saturday at the Severn Valley Tennis & Fitness Club. The Midshipmen will face Howard at 12 Noon and Mount St. Mary's at 5 p.m. Both Navy opponents will be opening their spring seasons against the Mids.

    "We are looking forward to the weekend's matches," said Navy head coach John Officer. "We will have the opportunity to play our regular starting lineup in both singles and doubles. The keys for us this weekend are to play more aggressive tennis and compete for every point."

    Navy began its spring season by posting a 4-1 victory over Delaware and dropping a 4-1 decision to Charlotte last Saturday in Richmond, Va. Jason Hill (So., Atlanta, Ga.) was the lone Mid to record a victory against both the Blue Hens and the 49ers. Playing at the No. 2 singles position in the lineup during both matches, Hill posted a 6-2, 6-0 victory over Delaware's Matthew Liebman, as well as a 6-4, 6-3 win over Darren Mansell of Charlotte.

    The Mids defeated both the Bison and the Mountaineers by identical 7-0 scores last season.

    2007 Navy Baseball Preview Part II: Relief Pitchers

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The second of a four-part series previewing the upcoming 2007 Navy baseball season focuses on its relief pitchers. Part I took a look at the starting pitchers last week, while Part III will view Navy's catchers and infielders (Jan. 30) and the final part will focus on the outfielders (Feb. 5). Navy is scheduled to open up its 2007 season with a three-game set at Florida A&M on Feb. 9-11 in Tallahassee, Fla.


    Despite losing career saves record-holder Ryan Hefner and career appearances leader Joe Koessler to graduation, Navy's starting pitchers should still feel comfortable turning the ball over to the bullpen in 2007. The Midshipmen retained the services of many experienced pitchers and welcome a solid crop of young arms into the mix this season.

    Looking to fill the void as this year's closer is freshman JD Melton, who comes to the Academy from Wofford (S.C.) College where he earned Freshman All-American honors. During his rookie season at Wofford, Melton went 7-4 with seven saves, a freshman school record, helping in 70 percent of the team's victories on the year. The right-hander from Myrtle Beach, S.C., held the opposition to less than a hit per inning over 49 innings of work, striking out 34 in the process. In a win over No. 10 South Carolina, he hurled five innings of one-hit, shutout relief, struck out four and retired the final-11 batters of the game.

    "JD had a great freshman year at Wofford and pitched in several key games," said Navy head coach Paul Kostacopoulos. "You can't help but use him in the role that he was good in. He's got above average stuff and a three-quarter slot delivery. However, the difference this season is working within the strike-zone on a more consistent basis."

    Serving in the setup, short relief role for his senior season is James Lee, who had significant success in 2006. The right-handed pitcher from Asheville, N.C., struck out 19 hitters in 18.2 innings during his 17 appearances as a junior last season. He allowed only one of 14 inherited runners to score and did not allow a run in five bases-loaded situations. Lee did not allow a run to score in 12.0 innings of work between March 5 and April 15, as he fanned 15 batters in the process.

    "James is again going to be a key short to middle relief guy," Kostacopoulos stated. "He has a lot of experience and has had a lot of success with his off-speed pitch. The opportunity also exists for him to come in and close a game out on an occasional basis."

    The Midshipmen will count on freshman Yale Eckert to serve in middle-long relief, in addition the possibility of him serving as a weekday starter. Standing at 6'7", tied for the tallest player in school history, Eckert was a two-time all-league selection in California. The southpaw struck out 73 batters in 56 innings while walking only 12 during his senior season at Aptos High School.

    "Yale is a solid left-handed guy coming out of the bullpen," said Kostacopoulos. "He showed during the fall that he has good command and can throw strikes. Like Oliver (Drake), we like his presence on the mound for a freshman."

    After working as a starting pitcher for much of his first season in Annapolis last year, Navy will look for Tim Hammond to produce in a middle-long relief role in 2007. As a reliever last season, Hammond struck out nine and walked only three in 11.2 innings. The right-hander fanned six in a 3.1-inning stint out of the bullpen at Coppin State and went at least one inning in all six of his relief appearances.

    "Tim has some experience in the relief role from last season," commented Kostacopoulos. "He had some good games and still produced despite giving up 73 hits because he worked around the plate and walked very few hitters. In order to be successful, he needs to bring the whole package when on the hill."

    Competing as a starter and reliever last season, senior southpaw Daniel Kovalcik will provide support in the middle relief role in 2007. Coming out of the bullpen last season, Kovalcik recorded a save and a 4.85 ERA in 13 innings. The product of Westwood, Mass., allowed only 13 hits during that time and struck out seven batters in the process.

    "Daniel is another left-handed reliever that possesses an outstanding changeup," said Kostacopoulos. "When he is working, he can be really tough on right-handed hitters. However, he needs to display more consistency on the mound in order to be effective."

    Several other returning pitchers may see some relief time for Navy in 2007. Junior right-hander Mark Foris went 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA in 11 appearances out of the bullpen. During his 16.1 innings of work, he allowed only 13 hits, holding the opposition to a .224 batting average. Sophomore southpaw Tyler Haught posted a 1-0 mark and a 4.91 ERA in six outings, two of which came as starts. Junior left-hander Kevin Heasley recorded similar marks as Haught, going 1-0 with a 4.91 ERA, as he made five appearances and one start. Junior right-hander Spencer Suarez came out of the bullpen 10 times last season, registering a 1-0 record and a 5.84 ERA in 12.1 innings. Junior right-hander Mark Guadagnini tossed 4.1 innings in five relief efforts in 2006.

    Complementing the returning relievers are several newcomers that could get some key experience this season. Southpaw Chris Murray comes to Annapolis after redshirting his freshman season at South Alabama. With Navarre (Fla.) Senior High School, he posted a 1.03 ERA to earn second-team all-area recognition. Left-hander Ridge Alkonis helped Claremont (Calif.) High School to the state semifinals in back-to-back season. In addition to his duties as an infielder, right-hander Jonathan Berkowitz may see action on the hill after being a two-time preseason All-American selection. Kyle Millerd, a 6'5" right-hander from La Quinta, Calif., combined for a 2.08 ERA in 100.2 innings over the last-two seasons. Southpaw Jeff Murdza struck out 155 batters in 143 innings during his career at The Lawrenceville School (N.J.), where he earned state prep player-of-the-year honors. Right-hander Alec Thomas fanned 120 batters in only 61 innings during his senior season to earn second-team all-state accolades at Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School (N.C.).

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- The Navy women's lacrosse team recently announced its 2007 schedule, playing at least 24 games, including five games against Division I competition. This is the inaugural year for Navy's women's lacrosse team after competing on the club level for several years. Navy will not be eligible for postseason consideration in 2007, but will join the Patriot League and will become eligible for postseason play in 2008. All of Navy's home games will be played at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, unless noted.

    "We are excited to begin our transition year and we have kept some of the traditional rivals on the schedule as well as seeing some new faces," said Navy head coach Cindy Timchal. "It is just an opportunity to expose ourselves nationally and get accustomed to the Division I game. We will play some of the teams that are in the Patriot League, so it will help us as we continue to build in the future."

    Navy will open its season with an exhibition contest against Heroes on Feb. 8, at 7:00 pm. The Mids' first official game in school history will take place as part of a doubleheader on Sunday, Feb. 11. Navy will host Division I foes LaSalle and American at 11:00 am and 1:00 pm.

    After competing in the University of Central Florida tournament the following weekend, Navy travels to Bucknell on Feb. 20, before returning to host the James Madison club team on Feb. 24. After a March 10 contest at Longwood, Navy returns home for a pair of games against Anne Arundel Community College and Catonsville Community College on March 19 and 24, before hosting the two-day Annapolis Navy shootout on March 31 and April 1. Teams for the tournament will be determined at a later date.

    "The Orlando trip gives us the opportunity to compete against similar teams," said Timchal. "Michigan, who we will play down there, is looking to go Division I, and Florida is already in the process. It's exciting to know that we will be facing teams that are in the same boat as us."

    After traveling to Howard on April 3, the Mids return home to take on the University of Maryland Club Team on Friday, April 6, at 7:00 pm. The game will be played on the grounds of the United States Naval Academy at Farragut Field, due to the men's team playing Maryland that night.

    After an April 18 contest against D-I Davidson at home, the team will conclude its home schedule against an opponent to be determined on April 28.

    The Mids will end the season competing in the Quad. Services Academy Tournament in Annapolis on May 5-6, then will compete in the IA Nationals in either Dallas or Denver on May 9 to May 12.

    "We are playing a variety of teams for the reason of getting people excited for our program," said Timchal. "We want to put our best foot forward and treat this year as somewhat of a showcase. We are very excited about the upcoming year and it's going to be a lot of fun."

    Navy Swimming to Face Penn Saturday In Philadelphia

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- After two-straight weeks of training, the Navy swimming and diving programs will return to competition this weekend when the Mids travel to Philadelphia to face Penn Saturday afternoon. The dual meet between the two respective men's teams will begin at 12 Noon, with the women's meet slated to follow at 3 p.m.

    Navy's men's team will look to bounce back from a pair of defeats to Cornell and Yale two weeks ago in New Haven, Conn., which dropped its record on the season to 11-3. Penn, meanwhile, prepares to face the Mids with a 6-6 record on the year.

    The Mids posted a 140.5-100.5 victory over the Quakers last season in Annapolis, but have been defeated by Penn on each of their last three trips to Philadelphia. Navy's last road victory over the Quakers came during the 1998-99 season.

    Navy totaled eight event victories over Penn during last year's meet, including wins by returning athletes Tyler Hill (Jr., Houston, Texas) in the 200 freestyle, Billy Vey (So., Huntersville, N.C.) in the 200 individual medley, Kevin Mukri (Sr., Silver Spring, Md.) in the 200 backstroke and Kevin Teague (Sr., Lexington, Ky.) on both diving boards.

    "With a week off from competition, we are ready to get back to racing this weekend at Penn," said Navy men's swimming head coach Bill Roberts. "Based off of recent performances by both teams, the meet looks to a very close battle."

    Navy's women's team picked up its 11th victory of the year in its last outing two weeks ago against Cornell, but also suffered its first loss of the season that same day with a 163-137 setback to Yale. Penn's women's team awaits the Mids with a 10-4 record on the season.

    The Quakers are riding a six meet winning streak over the Mids, which includes a 169-126 victory last season in Annapolis. As with the men's series, the last time a Navy women's team recorded a victory over the Quakers in Philadelphia was during the 1998-99 campaign.

    Navy returns each of its four athletes who posted an individual event victory last season against Penn, with the foursome combining to win seven events. The list of Navy's returning winners includes Jennie Spencer (So., Smithburg, W.Va.) in the 100 backstroke, Aubra Thomas (Sr., Pittsburgh, Pa.) in both breaststroke events, Katie Griffin (Jr., Ellicott City, Md.) in both diving events and Kelly Zahalka (So., Richmond, Va.) in the 100 freestyle and 400 individual medley events.

    "Penn provides a great challenge for our team," said Navy women's swimming head coach John Morrison. "They defeated us by some 40 points in 2006, but I believe we have made up a big chunk of that margin with improvements this season. It will still require great swims by our front line in a very hostile environment to win this one, however. (Penn) Coach (Mike) Schnur has done a terrific job with the Quakers, and I am sure they will be ready to swim Saturday on their senior day."

    Saturday will mark the final dual meet of the season for the Navy women's team, while the men's team will close its dual meet campaign the following week.

    ANNAPOLIS, Maryland, January 24. IN the second entry of her "A Day in the Life" series on SwimmingWorldMagazine.com, Navy sophomore Kelly Zahalka writes about some of her possible career paths in the Navy, and where some of her teammates will be stationed after graduations.

    She also explains a bit of Navy's dryland training, and offers Tuesday's practice plan.

    Tuesday, January 23, 2007, Day 2
    While today was physically and academically less intense than yesterday, I still managed to keep busy. Coach Rob Lias, Jr., leads us in track workouts on Tuesday mornings where we split into two groups. One group runs, while the other group PTs (Physically Trains, meaning push-ups, squats, or any other exercise of Rob's choice). Coach Rob gives us times that the entire group must make for 400s and 800s around the track. If someone misses, that group runs again until everyone makes the time. When everyone makes it, the groups switch. In the beginning of the season, we were still learning to work together, and the track workouts were extremely tough. Now that we have grown as a team, we have learned how to ensure that we all cross the line in time. I really enjoy the track workouts because they provide a little relief from swimming and challenge us together as a team.

    I had EE (pronounced "double-e", meaning Electrical Engineering) lab this morning. EE is a class required for all Midshipmen regardless of major. Classes such as EE make it possible for every Midshipman to graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree even if he or she is majoring in History or English. After that two-hour lab period, I went on to two hours of Strengths of Materials, a class required for my Mechanical Engineering major. I spent the rest of the day until practice going back and forth between the Hall (our dormitory which houses all 4,000 Mids under one roof) and the academic buildings for various meetings concerning my summer training and classes for next semester.

    Every summer, we are required to complete specific military training for 2/3 of the summer with the remaining 1/3 spent on leave (break). We use summer training to help narrow down our preferences for what we want to do when we graduate. As a female, I have several options: Marine Corps Officer (ground unit, pilot, or flight officer), Surface Warfare Officer (nuclear or regular), Explosive Ordinance Disposal Officer (EOD), Navy Pilot, and Naval Flight Officer. Dive School would prepare me to enter the EOD Community, but I am still waiting to hear the results of the screener. We have three Firsties (Seniors) on our team, two of whom are going to be Surface Warfare Officers and one of whom, Hollace Mulliken, is going to be an EOD Officer. The SWO's will be picking their ships a week after Patriot League Championships, so they have much to look forward to in the upcoming month! Julie Holland hopes to be stationed in Japan, while our captain, Aubra Thomas, is leaning towards San Diego. We are all so excited for our Firsties to graduate and enter the Fleet!

    This afternoon's workout was endurance-based for me. I like being a 400 IMer and 200 Flyer because I get to bounce around between several training groups. I'm still working on convincing Coach [John] Morrison that I should swim some sprint workouts, but I doubt that will happen any time soon! I swam with the distance girls today. Our practice focused on the mile. We don't swim the mile during our dual meet season, so we devote extra time to race strategy and race specific pacing before Patriots to get our minds and bodies ready.

    Our practice this afternoon was as follows:

    Warm-Up (all together):
    100 free, from the blocks
    100 back (50 drill/50 swim)
    300 kick (1st 25 of each 100 underwater)
    100 fly (50 drill/50 swim)
    200 free, from the blocks
    3x{ 4x75 free, pull no paddles 2@1:00, 2@1:15
    { 200 no free, pull with paddles @3:30

    Main Set (distance):
