    Navy Plebe Caps Monument in Traditional Climb

    Associated Press
    Monday, May 18, 2009; 7:02 PM

    A first-year student at the U.S. Naval Academy has succeeded in the annual tradition of placing a cap atop the 21-foot-high Herndon Monument.

    Nineteen-year-old Schyler Widman, of Jackson Hole, Wyo., put the cap on the monument in 1 hour, 14 minutes and 38 seconds on Monday.

    The obelisk is greased with 200 pounds of lard for the challenge.

    Midshipmen traditionally end their "plebe" year by removing a cap and placing another one on top of the monument.

    It's believed the tradition began in 1907.

    We missed the record by 25 seconds.

    But it's okay, we still beat '10 and '11. :-D
