Halbrook Earns Prestigious AAA Award
After completing one of the most storied careers in the history of the Army West Point track and field program, three-year captain Abby Halbrook received the United States Military Academy's most prestigious athletic honor, the Army Athletic Association Award. The AAA trophy is awarded annually to the male and female cadet-athletes who display the "most valuable service to intercollegiate athletics during their career as a Cadet." Johnny Surdick of the men's lacrosse team was the male recipient of the honor. In the 115th year of the award, Halbrook becomes the 12th women's track and field athlete and just the third women's cross country athlete to earn the honor. Halbrook is a 12-time varsity letterwinner and is among one of the most accomplished athletes in the history of the program. In 2018, she was honored with the Mike Krzyzewski Award for Excellence in Teaching Character Through Sport. The Tyler, Texas, native is a seven-time Patriot League individual champion in track and field and a 13-time Army-Navy Star Meet titlist. She led her team to five Army-Navy Star Meet victories and finished her career 4-0 against Navy at the indoor Star Meet. In 15 Star Meet events, Halbrook was defeated by a Naval Academy runner just once. Read more.
