The leading scorer or the player with the most ground balls/caused turnovers is frequently the captain of his team; numbers get noticed. At a place like the United States Naval Academy where leadership is part of the institution’s explicit mission, the players are more conscious of and astute about this quality because their future achievement of career goals depends on this special talent. Navy annually picks a player “who leads by example, displays mental and physical toughness and shows dedication to his teammates”; they picked Matt as a Second Classman for the Lt. Brendan Looney Award. As a First Classman, Matt Morrison was elected Captain by his teammates. An unofficial tally of the numbers of Landon alumni, who have received this honor, has 24 names; the 25th name is an impressive, well deserved addition.

Bear Alumni INDOOR TRACK

At the Bison Opener, Bucknell freshman Malachi Bostic-Wattley posted a 7.12 in the 60 meter dash for a 1st in his section/8th overall, a 22.59 in the 200m a PR and 3rd in the meet placing him into the IC4As in March and ran the 4×400, establishing a baseline in that event. As noted by the school’s press release Malachi “made a significant impact in his first collegiate competition”.

Jordan Marshall ran a 7.47 for Davidson in the JDL College Classic Kick Off 60 meters.

Deion Wellington’s Coastal Carolina indoor track team’s first meet is in January.

Mac Hightower’s Claremont McKenna College track schedule starts in February; they must not have an indoor facility ;-).

Bear Alumni Swimming and Diving

 

Jordan Gear helped his USC team beat Arizona by posting a 3rd place in both the 3meter and 1 meter diving; Trojans 172- Wildcats 128.

John Freeman’s Williams Ephmen are 2-1in the swimming season.

Likely there are other Bears who are competing for their colleges in winter sports. If you know of anyone who is playing, please send me (sandy_murdock@yahoo.com ) any leads! Thanks.
