Supporting the Black Knights in Enemy Territory

Supporting the Army Team has been at the root of CADET from the time before the magazine even existed. Whether it was a trip out east from our then Chicago-based operations or supporting the Corps-squad and DCA Club teams that made their way out to Chicago (Boxing, Women’s Soccer, Volleyball, etc), we have always made a point to be there to cheer on the Pride & Dream and capture a few images along the way.

This past academic year we were able to ramp up those efforts now that our operations sit just 45 minutes from the Naval Academy. With almost monthly Army-Navy match-ups in our neck of the woods we were able to capture a sampling from each season in 2018-2019.
