Track & Field (M&W):
Both men's and women's track & field teams will be heading west this weekend to compete in Saturday's Widener Field Meet in Chester, PA and Sunday's DuCharme Relay at Dickinson University in Carlisle, PA. The men's team is coming off a strong showing two weeks ago at the Wesleyan University Invitational in which two of their runners qualified for upcoming ECAC championships. The women's team is looking to rewrite history once again on the heels of two Mariners breaking their own academy records.
The Mariner's wrestling team will be heading even further west as they travel to Colorado Springs, CO for the 18th annual All Academies Championship. USMMA will be facing off against the nation's other service academies in an ultimate battle for bragging rights. Although suffering a string of early season defeats, the Mariners will be heading into this weekend's event winning three of their last four matches.
The Mariners will hit the road to face a pair of back to back Landmark Conference opponents as they square off against Goucher College and Catholic University of America on Friday and Saturday. USMMA is exuding confidence as they knocked first place Juniata out of the Landmark lead with a 75-70 victory this past weekend at Liebertz gym. Two weeks ago the Mariners split games with these same teams beating Goucher 85-77 and losing a close one to Catholic 59-55. Every game down the stretch is crucial as USMMA finds themselves three games out of a Landmark Conference playoff spot.
USMMA's women's basketball team will be playing three road games in four days as they too have Landmark Conference games against Goucher and Catholic on Friday and Saturday, but also face non-conference opponent New Rochelle on Monday. The Mariner's come into this weekend's games two games out of a playoff spot in the Landmark Conference with five conference games left to play. The women's team also earned a split when they played these same teams two weeks ago at Kings Point upending Goucher 68-67 in double overtime and falling to Catholic 62-38.
