WEST POINT, N.Y. -
For the first time ever, Army softball fans will be choosing which color jersey the Black Knights will wear Sunday when they close out their Patriot League regular-season schedule hosting Lehigh in a doubleheader. Fans are encouraged to "like" the Army Athletics Facebook page at Army Black Knights to make their choice.
Based solely on vote totals, Army will wear either its white or black jerseys against the Mountain Hawks. All four jerseys are all solid in color and feature both "Army" and "West Point" across the chest. There is a photo on the official Army Athletics Facebook page showing seniors Clara Navarro, Rachael Duval, Reanna Johnson and Alexis AuBuchon in each of the jerseys. Navarro and Johnson are wearing white, with Duval and AuBuchon wearing black, the latter with West Point in camouflage .
Fans can vote until 9 a.m. on Thursday, April 26, when the winning selection will be announced.
The Army baseball team engaged in a similar contest twice, the latest having the fans decide the jersey for Wednesday's Hudson Valley Classic.
