Ted Stephen Kanamine

Class of 1977
Swimming/Water Polo

Ted Kanamine spent four seasons in the pool for Army and graduated as the most prolific point-scoring swimmer in Academy history. He compiled more than 500 points in dual meets over his West Point career. A team captain and winner of both the Army Athletic Association trophy and ECAC Merit Medal in 1977, Kanamine became just the second cadet to capture both honors, following in the footsteps of gridiron legend Pete Dawkins in 1959.

Army's first-ever four-time Eastern Seaboard champion, Kanamine set either an Academy record or Eastern record (or both) in each of his four Eastern championship victories. He captured each of the first two Phil Moriarty Awards (1976, 1977), presented to the swimmer that compiles the most points at the Eastern meet. Kanamine finished his career as the holder of seven individual swimming records while also listing as a part of two record-setting relay teams.

Kanamine won four varsity letters in swimming and diving, along with two others in water polo.
