    Not that it is at all relevant to going to the school; I was just curious if it played the other three (besides Kings Point) in sports. If so, what sports?

    For most sports, the "big three" (USAFA, USNA, and USMA) compete at the Division 1 level, while USCGA and USMMA compete at the Division 3 level.

    There are a few teams at USCGA that compete at the Division 1 level, however. I think Rifle, pistol, and sailing (not sure if there are more) do compete head-to head in Division 1 against the Big 3 in those sports.

    They also sometimes meet up with Army in crew.

    I've seen CGA basketball play pre-holiday games at Navy.

    Wrestling counts one point, the same as women's swimming (where the Bears obliterated KP by the score of 168-69).

    Remind me again how many Superintendent's Trophies are possessed by USMMA?

    (Hint - if you guess "zero" you would be correct.)

    :cool:

    Similar to some other sports USMMA and USCGA compete against Navy and from time to time Army as well. Army never does too well in Sailing and unfortunately in recent years (last 10 or so) both Navy and USCGA have generally had KP's number, though there have been outlyers and during the prior 20 years (1977 - ~2000) KP always gave USCGA and Navy a run for their money and often bested them.
