The Navy hockey team celebrated its best season ever in 2014, winning the Eastern Collegiate Hockey Association title and reaching the quarterfinals of last month's ACHA Division 1 National Championships. On Tuesday, the team got a reward. The team was treated to a day with hockey's greatest prize, the Stanley Cup, thanks to a program from Discover credit card that allows more than just each year's NHL champion to spend a day with Lord Stanley's Cup. “I am so proud of the incredible season these young men had,” Navy coach Mike Fox said in a news release.

For Steven Rhodes, any game is a big game. After all, the Middle Tennessee defensive end came close to sitting out the entire season. This one, though, beats them all. A matchup with Navy on Monday in the Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth makes the former Marine sergeant's eyes open wide with anticipation. "It's a privilege and an honor to play in the Armed Forces Bowl, especially playing against the Navy," Rhodes said at Burleson Centennial High School, where his team is practicing.

Mike Poppleton won 15 of 17 faceoffs, Brandon Benn scored five goals and John Kaestner added three goals and three assists for Hopkins (8-4), which lost to Navy in two of the previous three years.

Sixty-six runners dashed, jogged and walked through the streets of Annapolis on Saturday to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing and raised money for one of the hospitals that treated their wounds. "When I saw what happened in Boston, I knew we had to do something, and we had to run," said Caitlin Chapman, who organized the race and got quick permission from an Annapolis official to stage the start and finish at City Dock. "It could have been any of us running in that race in Boston," Chapman said, "and it could have been our family members who were standing there watching us finish.

Navy's basketball team has been clearly on the rebound since launching the season with three straight losses, but last night it hit a record-setting gait in that department. The Midshipmen shattered the school record with 71 rebounds, an amazing 37 of them off the offensive boards, and had little trouble routing Liberty, 79-53, at Alumni Hall for their ninth victory in the last 10 games. Liberty, which had beaten both Richmond and Virginia Tech on the road, simply couldn't cope with Navy's superior size, desire and hustle and was never really in the game.

They were bigger and stronger inside, had better athletes than the current Navy team and, after their first NCAA tournament, were expected to win . . . often.The last midshipmen to represent the academy in postseason play were anchored by David Robinson. From 1985 to 1987, Navy made the NCAA tournament every season, creating some big waves in 1986, when Robinson, forward Vernon Butler and point guard Doug Wojcik led the team into the final eight before it was eliminated by Duke in the East Regional final.

When Navy junior Obi Uzoma finishes a drill for the outside linebackers, he has a vested interest in watching the rest of the position's players go through, and it has nothing to do with protecting his turf as the primary backup to starter Jordan Drake. Uzoma's intrigue stems from the presence of his younger brother, freshman Nnamdi Uzoma. The 6-foot-3, 231-pound Obi Uzoma said he and his younger brother compare notes "after every game, after every major scrimmage, after every practice.

As season openers go, a road game at Indiana on Saturday doesn't seem as daunting for Navy as going to Dublin, Ireland, to play Notre Dame last year. It might be just as tough, however, given Navy's problems against the Hoosiers for more than a half last season in Annapolis, as well as what Indiana did against Indiana State last week. A year after surviving a 31-30 shootout at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, Navy (0-0) will face much-improved Indiana (1-0) in Bloomington, Ind., at 6 p.m. Saturday.

Wave Ryder first gained national attention last November when Navy's junior safety was part of an answer on "Jeopardy. " The category was "Great College Football Names. " The answer - "Perhaps the most appropriate name ever, Wave Ryder, of this service academy. " Ryder said he heard about Alex Trebek mentioning his name on television from a friend who was watching the show "and was shocked as much as everyone else. " It wasn't that big a surprise when the same answer popped up again on another "Jeopardy" competition this summer.

Working in naval intelligence seems a perfect fit for Jasmine DePompeo's first assignment when she graduates later this month from the Naval Academy. For years, she's seen things on the lacrosse field that others don't pick up on. The playmaker for the No. 11 Midshipmen, DePompeo excels at setting up her teammates from behind the crease. As the attacker watches a play develop, her mind flips through a handful of options as she looks for an opening to whip a quick pass through. If it's there, she'll find it. DePompeo set a Patriot League single-season record with 65 assists this spring.

After a two-year hiatus, the Navy football team was back at the White House on Friday to accept the Commander in Chief's trophy from President Obama in a ceremony held in the East Room. The Midshipmen had won the trophy - which is presented to the winner of the series among the three service academies - seven consecutive times beginning in 2003, but that record streak ended when Air Force claimed it in 2010 and 2011. Navy has won the trophy 13 times in all. "This never gets old," Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo said.
