80th Annual Naval Academy Brigade Boxing Championships

| April 30, 2021, 07:01 PM

Prior Championship

The 80th Annual Brigade Boxing Championships took place in Alumni Hall at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, on Friday night, April 30, 2021. Usually held at the end of February, the championships were delayed due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Usually, a highly attended event, tonight’s championship was closed to the public. Usually the Annapolitan Club is out in force as strong supporters of Navy Boxing, but tonight  the crowd was sparse.  Midshipmen who showed up in dress uniform were given priority floor seating.

As part of the academy’s physical education program, all midshipmen are required to participate in boxing, and boxing is also offered as a club sport at the Academy. The boxing team participates in invitational competitions in the fall and spring, as well as in ongoing intramural bouts. The Brigade Boxing Championship showcases the most elite midshipmen boxers, each performing in three-round matches within their weight class. This year’s finals will have roughly 10 male weight classes and four female weight classes.

Midshipman 1st Class Kendall Louis and Midshipman 1st Class Jeanette Steerman will both compete to win the “Tony Rubino Four-Time Brigade Champion Award.”  Named after former Navy Boxing Coach Tony Rubino, given to the Midshipman who has won all four of their Brigade Boxing Championships. If they win their fights, they will join an elite group of 22 previous recipients since 1970.  If Steerman wins, she will be only the second in Navy history to win the award.

Louis’ chance was ended as his opponent, Jack Jeon (a Brigade champion from last year) handily outboxed the three-time champion. This year, Louis was boxing in the 156-pound weight class, up from the 147-pound class he boxed at last year to win his third championship.

And Steerman was fierce in her bout and readily beat JC Currie in three rounds earning the Tony Rubino Four-Time Brigade Champion Award.
