Cow Madison Hovren of the Army West Point women's basketball team received her second straight Patriot League Player of the Week award on Monday. This marks the third time in Hovren's career that she received the player of the week honor in back-to-back weeks. The Spokane, Wash., native paced Army with 19 points and 11 rebounds per game, while helping the team capture a pair of victories over Dartmouth and Air Force last week. She posted a double-double in both outings and is tied for second in the nation with seven. Hovren began her week with a season-best 24-point performance on 11-of-14 shooting against the Big Green on Wednesday night. In the win, she eclipsed the 800-point mark for her career, while adding 11 rebounds, a pair of assists and a steal. It was her third 20-point game this season and 15th of her career. The eight-time Patriot League Player of the Week followed up that performance by tallying 14 points, 11 boards and three steals in a victory against service-academy rival Air Force on Saturday.

The staffing arrangements didn't change over the next two years of operations. Ensign Perry USNR, who was the first commander of the station, relinquished command on 1st February 1943 to Lt J. C. Gamble USNR, but Lt Gamble was transferred on 26th May and Ensign Perry resumed command until 21st March 1944 when Lt M. Preston USNR took over command. The staff included six officers in April 1944 but by June 1944 only two remained. In May 1944 the total complement was 22 enlisted men but this dropped to 11 by June. The station closed at 8:00 AM on 29th May 1945 and was decommissioned soon after.
