Quoting Navy Coach Jamie Cook
"We are excited to play host to the match up with Army at Wesley Brown on Saturday. We welcome everyone to come out to watch the Midshipmen in a family friendly environment with free admission. We offer something that every person can relate to, the truest form of competition -- beat the person next to you.
"Our goal as coaches and teachers is to prepare our student-athletes for the real world. If you want to be great at something you have to constantly prove your ability to compete, and embrace those times when you are challenged. Saturday will be one of those challenges for us and our athletes look forward to displaying their competitiveness on their home track."
