Get Rowdy 4/c

Swab Summer is over and the year is flying by. We’re already a month into school, which I didn’t realize until I had to start wearing sweatshirts to rugby practice this week. So much has happened at the Academy in the first month. One of my favorite experiences so far was going to the Secretaries’ Cup game at Kings Point.

When I hear service academy rivalries I often think of Army versus Navy and because of this I didn’t think the rivalry between Coast Guard and Merchant Marine would be a big one. I was wrong. Getting off the bus at Kings Point, one of the first things my classmates and I saw was King’s Point plebes walking around with a stuffed bear skewered through on one of their guidons. The rivalry only got more intense as the games started; the bleachers were shaking because of how much both academies were cheering. If there was a lull in the cheering for even a minute there would be an upper-class or staff member shouting “get rowdy 4/c”, which prompted a continuation of cheering. Toward the end of the game, the Regimental Commander came down and did a cheer with the 4/c. Even though we ended up losing the cup, it was a fun day and a great bonding experience with my classmates.
