Around The Yard: Navy Greats in the Making

Navy baseball and women’s lax are riding high on incredible performances.

Sale of the Century

If you are anywhere near Annapolis this weekend be sure to check out the Sale of the Century at Navy Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. If you are a Navy fan and in need of some Navy SWAG (“Stuff We All Get –Michael Scott” – Rocky Dobson) then you don’t want to miss out on this opportunity. It’s basically a ton of Under Armour gear and equipment the athletic department is moving and you can get it at great prices. If you have never made it to one of these, you are missing out. The best part is it’s the same time as the men’s and women’s lax double header, which just so happens to be against Army this year. Now, you have three great reasons to make the trip, so don’t miss out!

Noah Song on USA Baseball Mid Season Watch List

You are missing out on history if you haven’t been paying attention to the season Navy senior Noah Song has been having. Just take a look at his stats so far this season: Record- 6-0, ERA- 1.54, WHIP- 1.02 with 99 Ks over 52.2 innings. Song’s 99 Ks lead THE COUNTRY!

Song has collected at least 10 Ks in 7 of his 8 starts. He’s averaging nearly 2 Ks per inning this season – there are only 3 outs in an inning. For those of you who are not fans of baseball and lack context here, these numbers are insane. The number one overall pick in the MLB Draft last season was Casey Mize from Auburn, who obviously also had terrific numbers, but they are dwarfed by Songs – the Navy pitcher is that good.

It’s no surprise that Song remains on the watch list for the Golden Spikes award, which recognizes the best amateur baseball player in the country. Song is just the second Navy player to make the mid season watch list for this honor. Keep your eyes peeled to see how this one plays out, because Song is well on his way to distinguishing himself as an all-time Navy great.

Junior Kelly Larkin Leads Mids Past Georgetown

Speaking of Navy Greats, Kelly Larkin is forging a path of her own. Larkin became just fourth Navy Women’s Lacrosse player to reach 300 career points, and she did so with flair! Number 14 Navy traveled to Georgetown to face the number 23 Hoyas, where the Mids made quick work of their hosts.

Larkin racked up 10 total point over 4 goals and 6 assists on the evening to reach 306 career points in the middle of her junior season. Larkin was joined by her teammates Nicole Victory, Annalise Heyward, and Marina Lazarides who tallied 5, 3, and 3 goals each respectively.

The Hoyas tried to keep it close several times over the course of the contest, but the Mids used an 8-1 run to seal the deal.

As mentioned earlier, you can Catch the Mids back in action at Navy Marine Corps Memorial Stadium against Army this weekend.
