ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Navy track and field teams swept the 2023 Army-Navy Outdoor Star Meet on Saturday at Ingram Field. The two victories earned the Mids two stars in the Army-Navy Star Series, presented by USAA.

Along with the two stars won by track and field, the women's team won its star match over Army earlier in the day to help Navy clinch the 2022-23 Army-Navy Star Series. The win marks the 39th time in the past 45 years in which Navy has won the Star Series (39-4-2).
