UNITED STATES NAVAL ACADEMY

Youngsters of all ages spend time on the campus of the Naval Academy each summer attending various camps organized by head coaches of the 33 varsity sports. Academy leaders are hoping those campers find their way into the Physical Mission Center currently being constructed as an addition to Ricketts Hall. This new facility will feature 25,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space and will celebrate the storied history of Navy athletics while simultaneously serving as a testament to the academy’s commitment to the physical development of the entire Brigade of Midshipmen. AD Chuck Gladchuk said the $20 million cost of the project will be covered by donations to the Naval Academy Athletic Association. -Bill Wagner, Baltimore Sun, Read More
