CMC ROTC members

CMC's Army ROTC program won first place in the Task Force South Ranger Challenge Competition last weekend in San Diego.

The Ranger Challenge, a grueling event started in 1982 to crown the best two-person “buddy” team of Rangers at Fort Benning, Ga., has evolved into a nation-wide competition and is often referred to as Army ROTC's varsity sport.

Journalist George Vecsey, a former New York Times sports columnist, has covered all the Summer Olympic games from Los Angeles in 1984 to Bejing in 2008, making him an excellent source for insight about the relationship between U.S. athletes and those from rising power China.

Good things come to those who wait. Now the wait is over for the CMC community; Roberts Pavilion has opened for recreational use.

And it’s only the beginning. As CMC President Hiram Chodosh said a few months ago during a “Senior Preview Day” at the Pavilion, “to be sure, the Pavilion is the home of CMS Athletics, but it’s a facility intended for use by all students. It’s an events center not just for athletics. The whole campus will be utilizing it.”

Thank you for the moving honor to speak today at the memorial of one of my heroes, Bill Arce. This is a sad, inspiring moment. Sad in our loss, and inspiring in the many lessons of Coach Arce’s life and work.

Like many of you here today, I played many sports as a kid. Of all, baseball seared the most lasting memories and associations. We all know that Yogi Berra said that he didn’t really say most of the things he said, but he did point out that baseball was 90% mental and the other half physical.
