Every once in a while a game changer comes around. Sometimes you get two one season. So is the case with the Hampton men and Army women, two NCAA Division I programs that will blaze trails come the spring.
Hampton’s 23 Pirates, the first group of D-I varsity lacrosse athletes from a historically black institution or university since 1981, grace our November cover. And the story of the inaugural Army women’s varsity team — and how West Point is looking at them to be future leaders — runs right alongside in this edition. Plus, get in shape as we revisit our annual Gym Rats package.
