By qualifying 29 cadets and five officers, the West Point Marathon Team had one of the largest teams in the annual Boston Marathon. Sam Maizel was the first team member to finish and also qualified for the Olympic Trials in the marathon event. Sixteen of the 34 runners ran the Boston under three hours. The team also ran in the Atlantic City Marathon and Earth Day Marathon. Captain Stephen Berry and Major Karl Robinson coached the cadet runners. For a change of pace the cadets took fourth place in the Scarsdale 15-kilometer Road Race in the open division of the regional event.
