University of Notre Dame

W

hen Father Edward F. Sorin started his school in the northern Indiana wilderness, he had only $300, three log buildings badly in need of repair and a far-sighted vision of establishing a liberal arts school to meet the growing educational needs of the frontier. He dreamed of building a great university, and in 1842, he founded the University of Notre Dame du Lac. Over the years, the University of Notre Dame du Lac would evolve into a preeminent place for Catholic thought. While becoming one of the top undergraduate institutions in the country, Notre Dame has also been at the cutting edge of research, including such innovations as the transmission of wireless messages and the development of synthetic rubber. Today researchers are achieving breakthroughs in astrophysics, radiation chemistry, environmental sciences, tropical disease transmission, cancer, robotics, and nanoelectronics. The University has also stressed residential life, with four-of-five students living on campus in the school’s 29 residence halls that serve as the focal point of social, spiritual and athletic activities. Notre Dame is one of a handful of universities with a truly international student body, coming from over 100 nations and all 50 states. Students come to Notre Dame not only to learn how to think, but to learn how to live, keeping faith with the vision of Fr. Sorin. Notre Dame is one of the few universities to regularly rank in the top 25 in the U.S. News & World Report survey of America’s best colleges and the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Directors’ Cup standings of the best overall athletics

programs. The University ranks first among all Catholic universities worldwide, according to the 2011 Times Higher Education survey and the Mendoza College of Business at Notre Dame boasts the No. 1 undergraduate business program in the nation according to BusinessWeek magazine.

R

ev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., is in his second five-year term as the 17th president of the University of Notre Dame. His vision is for Notre Dame to be the Catholic research university for our time – an institution that unifies, enlightens and heals by engaging in scholarship of the first rank while maintaining its distinctive Catholic character and long-time excellence in undergraduate education. During his tenure, Notre Dame has made significant progress toward its research goal, including selection as the lead partner in the Midwest Institute for Nanoelectronics Discovery, the creation of the Innovation Park research facility, and the construction of Stinson Remick Hall of Engineering. His commitment to undergraduate education has been marked by the Notre Dame Forums, yearlong initiatives that have examined important issues such as religion and world conflict, global health, immigration and energy. The University’s Catholic identity has been strengthened during Father Jenkins’ tenure in multiple ways, including the appointment of a coordinator for University life initiatives and the construction of

multimillion-dollar facilities for the Institute for Church Life, including the Center for Social Concerns, and the Institute for Educational Initiatives, which includes the Alliance for Catholic Education. Father Jenkins earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in philosophy from Notre Dame in 1976 and 1978, respectively, and was ordained a priest of the Congregation of Holy Cross in 1983. He holds advanced degrees from Oxford and the Jesuit School of Theology. He is a professor of philosophy and the author of Knowledge and Faith in Thomas Aquinas. A native of Omaha, Neb., Father Jenkins was born Dec. 17, 1953.

Vice President • Director of Athletics

J

ohn B. “Jack” Swarbrick Jr., a University of Notre Dame graduate who rose to national prominence as a lawyer, consultant and executive in the collegiate and Olympic sports industries, is in his fourth year as vice president and director of athletics at his alma mater. Among Swarbrick’s athletics initiatives are meeting the performance needs of Notre Dame student-athletes through establishment of a new sports performance division, reaching out to more former Irish student-athletes via the Notre Dame Monogram Club and other programs, utilizing emerging digital technologies to deliver better information on and access to Notre Dame athletic programs via expanded production and distribution of programming, and restructuring Notre Dame’s approach to sport administration through assignment of a unique administrator to each of the 26 Irish sports. Notre Dame ranked number one in the country (among Football Bowl Subdivision schools) in the three most recent Graduation Success Rate (GSR) surveys – in 2010 and 2009 with 99 scores (including in ‘09 a 97 score and ’10 a 96 in football that both also ranked number one). The 2009 Academic Progress Rate (APR) statistics included more perfect 1,000 scores by Irish teams (nine) than by any other FBS institution. The 2010 Notre Dame APR report featured eight perfect 1,000 scores. The past three years combined in Notre Dame athletics have featured 94 AllAmericans, 19 Academic All-America selections and five NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship winners; record involvement in community service hours by Irish student-athletes; NCAA titles in 2011 in men’s and women’s fencing (a combined championship) and in 2010 in women’s soccer (with Randy Waldrum named coach of the year); NCAA runner-up team finishes in 2011 women’s basketball, 2010 men’s lacrosse, 2009 fencing and 2008 women’s soccer; NCAA semifinal appearances in 2011 hockey, 2009 and 2010 women’s tennis and 2009 women’s soccer, plus a 2010 third-place fencing finish; a men’s basketball modern program record 27 victories and a number-two NCAA seed (its highest in 30 years) in 2010-11 (resulting in national coach of the year awards for Mike Brey); the hiring of new Irish head football coach Brian Kelly to start the 2010 season; construction of a new, freestanding ice hockey arena, scheduled to open for the 2011-12 season, plus the 2009-10 dedications of new facilities for soccer and lacrosse – as well

as opening of the new Purcell Pavilion within the south dome of the Joyce Center. Born in Yonkers, N.Y., and raised in Yonkers and Bloomington, Ind., Swarbrick is a 1976 magna cum laude graduate of Notre Dame with a bachelor’s degree in economics. Upon graduating from Stanford University Law School in 1980, he returned to Indiana to accept a position as an associate in the Indianapolis law firm Baker & Daniels. He made partner in 1987 and spent 28 years overall with the firm. As a member of the Indiana Sports Corporation, including the chairmanship from 1992 to 2001, Swarbrick led many of the city’s successful proposals to a wide array of athletics organizations – from the National Football League to the United States Olympic Committee to the Big Ten Conference. His leadership efforts resulted in the city earning the right to play host to the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium; becoming the home of the National Collegiate Athletic Association national headquarters in 1999; hosting the 1987 Pan American Games, 1991 World Gymnastics Championships, NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Fours and other college championship competitions and an array of national and world championships in Olympic sports. At Baker & Daniels, Swarbrick served as general counsel for numerous national governing bodies of Olympic sports, including USA Gymnastics and USRowing, and as a consultant to the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta. In his work as an advisor to the NCAA, Swarbrick coordinated the men’s College Basketball Partnership, an NCAA-led group that addresses the opportunities and challenges in the sport, and developed the business plan for the new NBA/ NCAA youth basketball enterprise, iHoops. In 2000 Swarbrick received one of the NCAA’s highest honors, The Flying Wedge Award, for his work in establishing Indianapolis as the new home of the NCAA. In 2001 the State of Indiana presented him with the Sagamore of the Wabash Award. Born March 19, 1954, Swarbrick was named Notre Dame’s 12th athletics director on July 16, 2008. He and his wife, Kimberly, are the parents of four children: Kate, a 2010 graduate of St. Louis University; Connor, a 2011 graduate of Wake Forest University; Cal, a sophomore at TCU; and Christopher, a University of Notre Dame freshman.

Glossary as 14 athletes have combined to garner 19 Academic All-America certificates, including six first-team berths. Distance runner Patrick Smyth continued the tradition in 2009, earning first-team Academic All-America honors. Notre Dame Track and Rield/Cross Country Academic All-Americans

Knute Rockne (left), founder of the Irish track and field program, poses with John Plant and Edwin Richardson in 1913.

Academic All-Americans – The 2006-07 season proved to be a banner one, both on the fields of competition and in the classroom, for the Notre Dame track and field/ cross country program. The Irish had four student-athletes earn CoSIDA Academic AllAmerica honors, led by middle distance runner Thomas Chamney, who was a first-team selection in 2007 after picking up third-team plaudits in ’06.

Tom Mick - 1988 Theresa Rice - 1989 (cross country only) Mike McWilliams - 1995 Jeff Hojnacki - 1997 Jason Rexing - 1997, 1998 Errol Williams - 1998 Mike Brown - 1999 Alison Klemmer - 2000 Ryan Shay - 2002 Luke Watson - 2002, 2003a Lauren King - 2004a Todd Mobley - 2004, 2005 Stacey Cowan - 2005, 2006 Sean O’Donnell - 2005, 2006 Stephanie Madia - 2006 Tim Moore - 2006 Thomas Chamney - 2006, 2007 Maryann Erigha - 2007 Sunni Olding - 2007 Todd Ptacek - 2007 Patrick Smyth - 2009 All-America Streak – Irish athletes have a proven record in national championship meets, as evidenced by their current line of All-America citations.

Chamney became the fifth Irish track and field athlete to be tabbed a two-time Academic All-American and the fourth to earn first-team honors. The three-time AllAmerican on the track earned a bachelor’s degree from the College of Arts and Letters in 2007, graduating with a 3.56 cumulative grade point average in English.

The Irish men’s track and field team went 21 years (1990-2010) with at least one competitor earning All-America honors (the Irish have amassed 167 All-America honors since 1921). The Notre Dame women’s track and field team enjoyed at least one All-America performance each season from 1997-2010 (14-year streak) and 44 overall since 1994.

Joining Chamney as 2007 Academic AllAmericans were sprinter Maryann Erigha and distance harriers Sunni Olding and Todd Ptacek. The honors were the first for each athlete. Erigha was also awarded an Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Scholar Award (first team) along with fellow sprinter Okechi Ogbuokiri (fourth team), and was a recipient of Notre Dame’s Byron V. Kanaley Award for exemplary scholarship and leadership among senior monogram winners.

All-American (Two Sports) – Former Irish great Raghib “Rocket” Ismail is part of an exclusive group of student-athletes who have combined All-America honors in track and field and another sport during their Notre Dame careers. Ismail was a two-time consensus first-team All-American in football (1989, 1990) and also earned All-America honors on the track as a sprinter in 1991.

Through the years, the Notre Dame track and field/cross country program has produced 21 student-athletes who have been awarded a place on the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team a total of 27 times. The program has been especially strong since 2000,

6

The other members of this elite club are: Edward “Moose” Krause (football 1932; basketball 1932-34), Dick Arrington (football 1965; wrestling 1966) and Bob Golic (football 1977-78; wrestling 1978-79). Former high jumper and 2006 graduate Emily Loomis narrowly missed becoming the first female student-athlete in school history

to join this group. She earned her first track All-America citation with a tie for eighth place in the outdoor high jump at the 2006 NCAA Championship, in addition to earning honorable mention All-America laurels in volleyball following the 2003 campaign. Technically, Notre Dame has not considered honorable mention selections in its final count of All-Americans. Aragon – Former Irish track and cross country standout Dr. Chuck Aragon was presented with the Spirit of Notre Dame Award during the Notre Dame-Michigan game in the fall of 1992. The award, sponsored by Maxwell House and General Foods, recognized Notre Dame athletes, past and present, who distinguished themselves in competition, demonstrated the “Spirit of Notre Dame” and exhibited the ideals of the University. Aragon captained both the Notre Dame cross country and track teams during his career (197781) and was the first Irish sub-four-minute miler. An All-American and bronze medalist in the 1,500 meters at the Pan Am Games, he placed fourth in the 1984 Olympic Trials. Aragon, who completed his residency in anesthesiology, donated many hours to South Bend’s Logan Center while at Notre Dame. His daughter Alexa is a member of the cross country and track and field teams. Back to the Bend – Although the Irish won their only cross country national championship in 1957, the bus ride home from East

Irish football flanker Tim Brown (above) held the Notre Dame 55-meter record until fellow gridiron star Raghib Ismail broke the record in 1991. Brown won the Heisman Trophy for his football exploits in 1987.

Lansing, Mich., was anything but a celebration. In 26-degree weather, the Irish upset heavily-favored Michigan State, but when coach Alex Wilson added up the team’s score of 121 points, he felt the score was extremely high to contend for the title. As a result, he and his team packed up and took the bus back to South Bend. About halfway home the stunning news came over the bus radio, Notre Dame had defeated Michigan State by six points. Coaching Tree – Although it is one of Notre Dame’s oldest varsity programs (dating back to 1890), the Irish track and field team didn’t bring on its first coach until 1916, when Knute Rockne took the job. He held that position until 1927, starting a trend of stability among Irish track coaches. Current Notre Dame track and field coach Joe Piane is perhaps the best example of this, as he is in his 37th year at the helm of the Irish. Piane is the longest-tenured coach among active mentors at Notre Dame, with men’s swimming coach Tim Welsh next in line with his 27th season on tap in 2011-12.

A native of Glen Ellyn, Ill., Deeter earned AllAmerica status twice for cross country in 1996 and 1998 and three times in track and field, all in 1999. Included in her accomplishments were two then-school records - the indoor and outdoor 3,000 and the 10,000.

the NCAA Indoor Championship. The Meyo Invitational, which features the “Meyo Mile” (a special race that features many of the top milers in the nation) and the Alex Wilson Invitational are fixtures on the Notre Dame indoor track and field schedule each season.

Fifth – One-fifth of a mile (approx. 320 meters) is the length of the Meyo Track, the largest collegiate indoor surface in the country and the home track for the Irish indoor teams. First opened in 1988, the track was named for Ray and Marie Meyo of Brecksville, Ohio, and is made of the Mondo track surface featuring six 42-inch lanes.

Football Players – The Notre Dame football and track and field programs are two of the oldest varsity sports on the Irish campus. There have been a number of football stars who have crossed over to the track, or the field, and left an impression on the track and field program. Just a glance at the Notre Dame track and field record book shows the effect that football players have had on it. Raghib “Rocket” Ismail, who finished second in the Heisman Trophy balloting in 1990, holds the school record for the indoor 55 meters and finished as an All-American in 1991.

The Meyo Track has established itself as one of the fastest surfaces in the nation and welcomes a number of high-class athletes in a “last chance” meet (the Alex Wilson Invitational) who are attempting to qualify for

Former Irish defensive back Allen Rossum currently holds the school record in the indoor 60 meters (6.68), former running back Randy Kinder set the indoor 200-meter record in 21.11, former receiver Ryan Postel owns the indoor 400-meter record (47.01) and former halfback Aubrey Lewis holds the top mark in the 400-meter hurdles (50.2). Some football players who also earned monograms on the track include 1987 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Brown, Jack Elder, Edward “Moose” Krause, Elmer Layden, Dean Lytle, Ryan Mihalko (the school-record holder in the javelin), Dwight Ellick, Terrail Lambert, Creighton Miller and Knute Rockne.

Two-time NCAA champion (’23 and ’24) Tom Lieb introduced the spinning throw delivery in the shot put, which is still in use today.

Ghana – The impact of Notre Dame track can be felt around the world as evidenced by William P. Mahoney, an Irish alumnus who served as the U.S. ambassador to Ghana un-

Glossary he and two other doctors saw 1,100 patients in 10 days and he performed 35 eye surgeries – with Hurd and his colleagues increasingly in demand as their reputation grows. Hurd’s days of distinction as a collegian included being named Notre Dame’s “athlete of the year” for 1967-68 and establishing the American indoor record in the 300-yard dash (29.8). He set eight Notre Dame records and totaled five All-America finishes at the 1968 and ‘69 NCAA meets.

John P. Nicholson was one of track and field’s greatest innovators in the late 20’s and early 30’s. Here he is pictured with Irish distance great Greg Rice, plotting out the All-American’s next race.

der the Kennedy Administration. A sprinter for coach John Nicholson, Mahoney took over the coaching duties when Nicholson died in 1940. Mahoney guided the team to an unofficial victory in the Drake Relays before he entered the Navy in 1942. Golden Anniversary – The 2005 season marked the 50th running of the Notre Dame Invitational cross country meet, one of the nation’s oldest and largest intercollegiate races. The invitational was started by former Irish head coach Alex Wilson in 1956 as a fourmile race, extended to five miles in 1968 and a women’s competition added in 1987. Heisman – Achieving success on both the track and the football field was the trademark of former Irish runners Tim Brown and Raghib “Rocket” Ismail. Brown won the 1987 Heisman Trophy in addition to running with the track team during the offseason. Brown owned the school record in the 55 meters until 1990 when ‘90 Heisman runner-up Ismail ran 6.07 in the event, and eventually went on to earn track All-America honors by finishing second in the 1991 NCAA indoor 55 meters. Hurd – Dr. Bill Hurd was honored in 2002 at the annual Notre Dame Monogram Club dinner with the Moose Krause Distinguished Service Award, the highest honor presented by the Monogram Club. A world-class sprinter and 1969 Notre Dame graduate with a degree in electrical engineering, Hurd now is a noted eye surgeon, with an ophthalmology practice in Memphis that specializes in cataract, glaucoma and diabetic treatment and keratorefractive surgery. Hurd annually spends 2-3 weeks providing voluntary eye surgery to the poor in Africa, Mexico and Brazil. On one trip to Madagascar,

He also was a finalist (top eight) at the Olympic Trials in the 100 and 200 meters, finishing fifth in the 100 to just miss a spot on the Olympic squad (his competitors included the likes of Jim Hines, John Carlos, Tommy Smith and Mel Gray). Hurd, who added graduate degrees from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (master’s in management science) and Meaharry Medical School in Nashville, was a Rhodes Scholarship regional finalist and received Notre Dame’s Harvey Foster Award in 1992 (recognizing alumni for distinguished civic activity) and the NCAA’s prestigious Silver Anniversary Award in 1994 (recognizing career success and community service). He holds two U.S./foreign patents for optical devices, including a slit-lamp, mountable intraocular biometer. Also an accomplished jazz musician, Hurd completed work on his fourth CD, in which he plays the saxophone and flute. Hurd and his wife Rhynette, an attorney, have sent both of their sons to Notre Dame. One of his sons, Ryan, was a four-year monogram winner on the Irish track and field team from 2001-04.

Loftus Center/Guglielmino Athletics Complex – Notre Dame first utilized the Loftus Center in October of 1987 and is enjoying its 25th full season of use in 2010-11. The indoor facility is highlighted by Meyo Field, a Prestige Turf surface installed in 2003 that is shared with several Irish sports teams, including the football and lacrosse programs. The Loftus Center is connected to the Guglielmino Athletics Complex, which features the 25,000-square foot Haggar Fitness Center, a facility holding more than 250 pieces of weight training equipment, six plasma televisions and a state-of-the-art sound system. It also houses the 150-seat Isban Auditorium as well as plentiful meeting space. Meyo Invitational – Four minutes, one mile. For years it was the unbreakable barrier and it remains among the most celebrated feats in all of sport. Folks that know the sport of track and field will tell you that 3:40 in the 1,500 or 7:55 in the 3,000 are just as impressive, but to the casual fan there is something about the simplicity of it; four laps, four minutes, one mile. In February 2012, the 26th annual Meyo Invitational will return to the Loftus Sports Center on Notre Dame’s campus with the marquee event at the meet being the Meyo Mile. In the past four seasons, no fewer than five runners have broken the magical four-minute mark, highlighted by two of the most exciting races at Notre Dame in recent memory. In 2003, Luke Watson won the race in school record time (3:57.83), moving into the lead a mere 30 meters from the finish line. After the

Jinx – Although Irish great Greg Rice is widely regarded as one of the best distance runners of all time, his coach only saw him race once during his Notre Dame career. Coach John Nicholson superstitiously felt he jinxed Rice during races and therefore stayed in South Bend while Rice traveled to meets. The only race Nicholson saw was perhaps one of Rice’s finest as he outdueled Taisto Maki and Don Lash to win a three-mile race in 13:52.2. Unfortunately, the race would also be Nicholson’s last as the coach died two days later from complications of a heart attack that he suffered just hours before the competition. Lieb – Tom Lieb, an Irish shot put thrower in the early 20’s, is credited with introducing the spin-style delivery to the sport, a style which is still used today. Lieb won the NCAA title in the event during the 1923 and 1924 seasons.

Luke Watson pulled ahead in the final 30 meters and won a heartstopping Meyo Mile in 2003, hitting the tape in a school-record time of 3:57.83.

dust had settled, the top five in the race were each in under four minutes, each within a half second of the others and each owned one of the five fastest times in the world that year. The 2005 race turned out to be just as thrilling, with four runners breaking the fourminute barrier, including a pair of Notre Dame athletes (Watson, running unattached, and sophomore Kurt Benninger). All four sub-four minute runners earned automatic qualification to the NCAA Indoor Championship and Benninger’s time of 3:58.75 put him less than a second off Watson’s school-record mark of two years earlier. Notably, Indiana’s Sean and John Jefferson also became the first American brothers to run sub-four minute miles. The Invitational, as well as the Meyo Mile, are the brainchild of Irish head track and field coach Joe Piane. When the Loftus Center was built, Notre Dame installed a track that was oversized (one-fifth of a mile, or approximately 320 meters) and topped with a Mondo surface, which produced a rare and very fast combination. Piane recounted the invention of the Invitational: “We put the meet together because it was a huge track and it was attractive to just give it a try. The name comes from Ray Meyo, who donated everything, and we decided to highlight the mile because even the average person knows that a sub-four-minute mile is very good, so we put together a ‘four minute challenge’ knowing that if the race did go under four minutes, everyone was going to say, ‘Wow! This is really something.’ ” The Meyo Mile, however will not be the only great event on the weekend. The Meyo Invitational is always packed with outstanding performances from start to finish. In 2011, athletes registered four automatic or provisional qualifications for the NCAA Championships, and through the years, numerous track and school records have been shattered. In fact, six meet records and three track marks went by the boards during the 2007 meet alone. National Champions – Fifteen Irish athletes have won 16 national track titles during the program’s history, in addition to the two individual crowns and one team championship in cross country. The most recent track champion was Ryan Shay, who ran away with the 10,000 meters at the 2001 NCAA Championships in Eugene, Ore. Before Shay’s triumphant victory, Notre Dame’s last track and field champion was Tom McMannon who won the 55-meter high

Notre Dame’s Greg Rice (second from left) is considered by many to be the greatest distance runner in U.S. history. The 1940 Sullivan Award winner, Rice went undefeated in 65 major indoor and outdoor races over a three-year span, setting 10 world records in six different events. He also was an All-American in the two-mile race, winning the NCAA title in 1937 and 1939 and finishing second in 1938.

hurdles in 1972. Greg Rice (1938) and Oliver Hunter (1942) were individual cross country champions, while coach Alex Wilson’s 1957 squad won the NCAA cross country national championship. Pioneer – Harry M. Jewett was the first recognized Notre Dame track and field athlete, making his debut in 1890 at a relay invitational in Ann Arbor, Mich. The school was next represented in 1898 and the Irish have competed in every year since then with the exception of 1906. Rockne – The name that has become synonymous with Notre Dame football also was involved in the Irish track scene. After a difficult freshman year as a reserve on the varsity football team, Knute Rockne turned his attention to track where he earned a monogram and, as legend has it, once broke the world record in the indoor pole vault with his best effort of 12-4, but held it for such a brief period that he never received official recognition for it. Rockne became the University’s first track coach in 1916 and the first cross country mentor in 1920. During his tenure, Rockne guided five Olympians and two Olympic medalists. The coach resigned his track responsibilities in 1928 to devote his energy to football until his death in 1931. Roof Top Coaching – Injured by a wild discus throw, John Nicholson (Irish track coach from 1927-40) sat on the roof of a car and shouted instructions to his runners through a megaphone during training. The method proved so effective that Nicholson made the car a regular part of his training regimen. Starting Blocks – John Nicholson bestowed upon the track world perhaps his greatest innovation, the starting block. His starting

block caught on in the late 1920s and was well-received by the track community. “You have a device which will materially make short distance, hurdle and relay racing more popular with both the public and athletes,” wrote former Illinois coach Harry Gill in a 1929 letter. “It appears to be a real help to track athletics.” John Griffith, former chairman of the NCAA track and field rules committee and commissioner of the Big Ten Conference, was equally impressed in a letter written the same year. “I have studied the pictures of your new starting device with a great deal of interest, and am of the opinion that you have made a distinct contribution to track athletics.” Sub-four – Jake Watson made history on June 2, 2007, at the Music City Distance Carnival (City, State). It was there that he ran 3:59.4 over one mile, breaking the elusive four-minute barrier, but even more notably, joined his older brother Luke as just the second pair of brothers in American history to run sub-four minute miles. Luke, an Irish distance running legend and former assistant coach, first broke the barrier indoors at the 2002 Meyo Invitational. Jake performed the feat after earning his first career AllAmerica honors during the 2007 track and field season. The Watsons (Stillwater, Minn.) join twins Sean and John Jefferson who both broke four minutes in the 2005 Meyo Mile. Varsity – While the men’s track and field and cross country teams are two of the oldest teams at Notre Dame, dating back to the 19th century, the women’s program is only in its infancy, relatively.

Greg Rice, billed as the greatest distance runner the United States has ever produced, was presented with the 1940 Sullivan Award as the nation’s top amateur athlete after he set a world three-mile record at the national championships. Named “the Little Man with a Big Finish,” Rice smashed the world three-mile record with a time of 13:51. He earned All-America honors in the mile in 1937, and also received those honors in the two-mile as he won the event in 1937 and ’39 and placed second in 1938. Rice was undefeated in 65 major indoor and outdoor races in just over three years with 10 world records in six different events. Rice became the firstever cross country national champion in 1938 when he ran the four-mile course in 20:12.9 to lead the Irish to a secondplace team finish. Born in 1916, Rice died in May of 1991.

Best-selling author Nicholas Sparks graduated in 1988 and was a two-time monogram winner in track and field. At Notre Dame, Sparks was a member of the 4x800-meter relay team, which still holds the outdoor school record. After pursuing a variety of jobs after graduation, he wrote his first published novel entitled “The Notebook,” which was released in 1996. It became one of only five novels published in the past 35 years that spent more than a year on the New York Times hardcover best seller list, and was eventually made into a movie in 2004 starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. His second novel, “Message in a Bottle,” was published in 1998 and remained a bestseller for 43 weeks. The film version, starring Kevin Costner, Paul Newman and Robin Wright Penn, opened at number one at the box office and grossed more than $100 million. His third novel, “A Walk to Remember,” was published in October 1999 and turned into a movie in 2002 starring Mandy Moore. In 2004, he was honored by Notre Dame with the first-ever Rev. Robert F. Griffin, C.S.C., Award, for establishing an initiative in the University’s Creative Writing Program that includes fellowships, internships and an annual Sparks Prize to support a student writer-inresidence. Nicholas Sparks is married and has five children. He lives in New Bern, N.C., and still runs nine miles a day.

A middle-distance track star at Notre Dame, Alex Wilson is a perfect example of an outstanding athlete and legendary coach. While at Notre Dame, Wilson was undefeated in the quarter- and halfmile events and set a national indoor record of 49.3 for the 440 in 1932. He set records in both the 440 and 880 races. Wilson also won the Amateur Athletic Union 600 and twice captured the Milrose 600. In 1928 and 1932, he competed in the Olympics for his native Canada and won a silver in the 800-meter race and a bronze in the 400-meter run in 1932. In 1950, after 18 years as a successful track and swimming coach at Loyola (Ill.), he returned to coach at Notre Dame. During his 23 years with the Irish, his teams finished in the national top-10 11 times. Wilson guided three track national champions, 28 track and eight cross country All-Americans and led the Irish to the cross country national championship in 1957. His teams appeared in the meet a total of 18 times. He was voted into the Canadian Track Hall of Fame in 1954 and in 1967 he was elected to the Helms Athletic Foundation Hall of Fame for his contributions as a track coach in the United States. In December 2008, Wilson was inducted into the U.S. Track and field and Cross Country Coaches Association Hall of Fame. Wilson was also honored as national coach of the year by the NCAA Cross Country Coaches Association in 1972, and an indoor track and field meet is held in his honor each year at Notre Dame. Wilson died Dec. 10, 1994, at the age of 87.

Rick Wohlhuter, a two-time Olympian and 1971 Notre Dame graduate, was selected to the Track and Field Hall of Fame in 1991. Winner of an Olympic bronze medal in the 800 meters in 1976, he holds the distinction of being the last man to qualify for the Games in both the 800 - and 1,500meter events. Wohlhuter won the IC4A 880-yard title in 1971 and qualified for the Olympics in 1972. In addition to his appearance in the Games, Wohlhuter broke the U.S. 800meter record twice and twice set world records for the 880-yard race. He also set the world record for the 1,000 meters in 1974 and won the event the next three indoor seasons. Wohlhuter also won national outdoor titles in 1973 and ’74. In 1974 he earned the Sullivan Award as the nation’s top amateur athlete. A 1970 NCAA champion in the 600yard event, the two-time All-American was also a member of Notre Dame’s two-mile relay team which placed second in the nation in 1969. Wohlhuter joined John Beatty, the first man to break the four-minute mile indoors, high jumper Charles Dumas, a 1956 gold medalist and first jumper to clear seven feet, and Doris BrownHeritage, winner of 14 U.S. distance titles and five world cross country championships, as the 1991 Track and Field Hall of Fame inductees.

Ten-time AllAmerican Seven-time BIG EAST Champion

Tameisha King graduated from Notre Dame in 2003, and left the University as its top female long jumper. King owns both the indoor and outdoor school records for the long jump, in addition to running in the school record 4x100-meter relay. She was a four-time All-American, with three of those honors coming during the outdoor season, and one during the indoor season. Each of her AllAmerica honors came in the long jump. King had five top-10 finishes in the NCAA Championship as well as four BIG EAST Championships to her credit. King also has a very impressive résumé outside of the collegiate spectrum. In 2001, as a sophomore, she placed second in the long jump at National Junior Track and field Championship, and went on to finish among the top 10 at the World Junior Championship in Santiago, Chile. King won the 2004 USA Track and field Indoor long jump title after finishing fourth in ’03. She also ended up sixth at the 2004 U.S. Olympic Trials and was the top finisher from the United States at the 2003 Pan American Games.

A 2001 graduate, Ryan Shay became the USA Marathon Champion in 2003, continuing the championship ways of his collegiate years. Shay is the most decorated athlete in the history of Notre Dame track and field. A 2001 NCAA champion in the 10,000 meters, Shay was a nine-time All-American including two honors for cross country, two for indoor track and five for outdoor track. His nine honors are the second-most in school history. In 2002, a fifth year of eligibility, Shay was named an Academic AllAmerican and had a second-place finish in the 10,000 meters at the NCAA Championship. Shay was a nine-time BIG EAST champion in his years at Notre Dame, with one of those victories coming in cross country. He also had seven top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championships in various distance events including the 3,000, 5,000 and 10,000 meters. In 2000, he competed for the right to represent the USA Track and field Team at the Olympic Games, finishing 10th in the Olympic Trials. Upon graduation, he held school records in the indoor 5,000 meters, the outdoor 5,000 meters and the 10,000 meters. Shay’s 2001 national championship was the first outdoor championship by a Notre Dame athlete since 1954. Shay died unexpectedly on Nov. 3, 2007 during the running of the 2008 U.S. Olympic Marathon trials in New York City.

Eight-time AllAmerican Six-time BIG EAST Champion Sub-Four Minute Mile Enjoying one of the best careers in the history of Notre Dame track and field, Luke Watson competed in one of the most exciting moments in the history of the track and field program. In January of 2003, Watson broke one of the great barriers in sports, the four-minute mile, in front of one of the largest crowds to ever see a track meet at Notre Dame. Watson’s mile of 3:57.83 was the fastest collegiate indoor mile in the country in ’03 and was only the second sub-four-minute mile in school history. In the ’03 season, Watson’s last with the Irish, he was honored as an All-American for the eighth time, including two for cross country, four for indoor track and two for outdoor track. He was also named an Academic AllAmerican in both the ’02 and ’03 seasons. Upon graduating, Watson had five top-10 finishes in the NCAA Championships, and two top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championship for cross country. Additionally, Watson held six school records upon graduation – the indoor and outdoor mile, the 3,000meter steeplechase, the indoor 3,000 meters, outdoor 5,000 meters and the distance medley relay. Watson was also a force to be reckoned with in the BIG EAST. During his career he was a six-time BIG EAST champion. He also led the 2003 Irish to BIG EAST Championships in both the indoor and outdoor seasons, the first time a Notre Dame team accomplished that feat.

Molly Huddle graduated from Notre Dame in 2007 as one of the most decorated athletes in Irish sports history. Huddle concluded her career at the 2007 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, finishing third in the 5,000-meter run to earn her tenth AllAmerica selection, a record for the most All-America selections by a Notre Dame athlete in any sport. Huddle’s other accolades include six BIG EAST track titles, the most by any Irish woman, and four NCAA Mideast Regional 5,000-meter titles. She set records across the board by being the first woman in BIG EAST history to win both the outdoor 5,000meter and 10,000-meter race in back-to-back years as well as be named the BIG EAST Outstanding Outdoor Track Performer for two consecutive seasons. Former sprinter Liz Grow is the only other Irish athlete to win the award, receiving the honor in 2002. Huddle posted top-four finishes in each of her four NCAA 5,000m appearances, taking the runner-up spot in 2006. She currently holds four Irish school records (indoor 3,000m & 5,000m/outdoor 5,000m & 10,000m) as well as the BIG EAST meet record in the 10,000m. Huddle’s success was not limited to the track. In her freshman season of cross country she was named the 2003 NCAA Great Lakes Regional Runner of the Year after her first-place performance. She earned All-America honors in 2002, 2003 and 2005. Huddle, currently the American women’s record holder in the 5,000 meters won the women’s 5,000-meter title at the 2011 USA Track and Field Chmpionships in June.

Men’s & Women’s Cross Country Previews Both Notre Dame cross country teams battled through early growing pains to turn in solid campaigns in 2010, with the Fighting Irish men finishing third at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional and 25th at the NCAA Championships, while the women just missed an NCAA finals berth after taking sixth-place honors at the Great Lakes Regional. Now a year older and wiser, the core groups from both teams look to lead Notre Dame to the next step back up the ladder of national prominence in 2011.

Men’s Preview
 Welcoming back four of the five individuals that scored at the BIG EAST Championship and six of the nine runners that competed at the meet, the Notre Dame men’s cross country squad has lofty expectations for the 2011 season. “Our goal this year as it is every season is to do exceptionally well in the BIG EAST and NCAA meets,” head coach Joe Piane, who is entering his 37th year at the helm of the Irish program. “We will look for consistency from our runners to help reach our goals.” The Irish, who are looking to make their 21st appearance in the NCAA Championship field in 28 years, will turn to the senior leadership of five runners who have plenty of BIG EAST experience. Seniors Jeremy Rae, Jordan Carlson,

Kelly Lynch, Joseph Miller and Johnathan Shawel all are preparing to help the Irish improve upon last season’s fifth-place finish at the BIG EAST Championship. Rae finished 26th last season in his first BIG EAST Championship meet, while Lynch placed 57th in his first appearance. Lynch is returning from injury, but showed great promise during the 201011 track and field season, running a nine-minute flat time in the 3,000meter steeplechase. Carlson has placed in the top 50 all three years, with his best performance coming last season, finishing 42nd. Miller finished 14th in 2008 and 45th in 2009 to score for the Irish. Showing continued improvement over the course of his career, Shawel placed 27th as a junior after finishing 39th as a sophomore. Piane also praised J.P. Malette, Martin Grady and Walter Schafer for strong efforts over the summer months. Grady is the team’s leading returner from last season, placing 20th at the BIG EAST Championship meet. Malette didn’t run for the cross country team last season, but competed in the NCAA East Regionals with the track and field squad in the 1,500-meter run. Looking to help out the team in their first season of action will be eight freshmen. Piane pointed out Johnny Fuller, a state champion cross country runner from Iowa, as well as Jake Kildoo and Christopher Quinn as three to watch out for during the upcoming season. The men’s team boasts 26 returnees and nine newcomers, including transfer Patrick Lesiewicz. Six of the runners competed at the BIG EAST Championship, with four scoring. The roster shows a young squad with 21 of the 35 members of the team being underclassman. Among the losses from last year include Dan Jackson, who finished 12th at the BIG EAST meet and fourth at the Great Lakes Regional meet to earn first team all-BIG EAST accolades and all-

14

region honors. Also closing out their Notre Dame careers were Mat Abernethy and Ryan Gamboa, who each ran at the BIG EAST Championship, but did not score for the Irish. The Irish finished third out of 31 teams at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional last season to advance to the NCAA Championships, where they finished 25th.

Women’s Preview
 With six of the top seven runners returning from a sixth-place finish at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional, the Notre Dame women’s cross country squad has high hopes for the upcoming 2011 season, as it looks to return to the NCAA Championships for the 10th time since 2001. Among the many talented returnees from last year’s squads are a pair of upperclassmen in senior Rachel Velarde and junior Rebecca Tracy. Velarde has finished in the top 45 at the BIG EAST Championships all three seasons, while also qualifying for the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field East Regionals last year in the 10,000 meters. Tracy finished 37th at last season’s BIG EAST Championship, after placing 45th as a freshman. She also competed at the NCAA East Regionals last season in the 1,500 meters. The Irish claimed three freshmen in the top five at the NCAA Great Lakes Regionals last season as Meg Ryan,

mile last season, while Lesiewicz, who comes to South Bend from Schaumburg, Ill., won the mile in 2009. Among the key losses for the Irish is the graduated Erica Watson, who finished 33rd at the BIG EAST Championship last season.

 The schedule increases in intensity as the season goes along, and starts with familiar meets in the Crusader Invitational (Sept. 2), National Catholic Invitational (Sept. 16) and the Notre Dame Invitational (Sept. 30).

Alexa Aragon and Kelly Curran all return for their sophomore campaigns. Ryan leads the group after finishing 29th at last season’s BIG EAST Championship. “All three runners had strong track seasons, so we are hoping that they’ll be at a different level than they were as freshmen,” says head Irish women’s cross country coach Tim Connelly. Notre Dame also returns a key member from its 2009 team in junior Jessica Rydberg, who missed all of the 2010 season with an injury. Rydberg claimed All-American status as a freshman in the 10,000 meters and placed 33rd in the 2009 BIG EAST Championships.

The women’s squad has won the Valparaiso University-hosted Crusader Invitational for four consecutive seasons, while the men’s team has won it two years in a row. Meet two marks the 32nd running of the National Catholic Invitational at Notre Dame for the men’s team and the 28th running for the women’s program. The women’s team has won the meet nine straight years, while the men’s team is on a two year winning streak. The highly competitive Notre Dame Invitational has been run every year since 1956 on the men’s side and 1987 on the women’s side. The men last claimed the title in 2007, while the women last won in 2003.

The Irish head to Madison, Wis., on Oct. 14 for the Wisconsin Invitational. Both the Notre Dame Invitational and the Wisconsin Invitational offer the Irish their first chance at seeing some of the top teams in the Great Lakes Region. The BIG EAST Championships are slated for Oct. 29, and will be held in Louisville, Ky. Last year the men finished fifth out of 14 teams, while the women placed sixth out of 16 squads. As always, the championship promises to be highly competitive on the women’s side as defending national champion Villanova returns along with fourth place Georgetown, ninth place Providence and 10th place Syracuse. Connelly also expects strong teams from West Virginia and Connecticut, making the BIG EAST as strong as it has ever been. The men’s championship will feature six teams that finished from 14 to 29 at the NCAA National Championship, including Notre Dame, who finished 25th. The NCAA Great Lakes Regionals will be on Nov. 12, in Toledo, Ohio, while the NCAA Championships will return to Terre Haute, Ind., for the eighth consecutive year on Nov. 21.

Overall, the Irish return 20 runners from last year’s team, and welcome eight newcomers. Seven of the returning runners competed at last year’s BIG EAST Championship, while four of those runners placed in the top five and scored points for Notre Dame. A balanced roster shows seven seniors, four juniors and nine sophomores to go along with the talented eight-member freshman class. Among the freshmen expected to compete immediately are Emily Frydrych and Karen Lesiewicz, both who have won the mile race in track and field in their respective states. Frydrych, who arrives from Wilmington, Del., won the

Men’s & Women’s Track & Field Previews TRACK AND FIELD PREVIEW

MIDDLE DISTANCE/DISTANCE

High expectations surround the Notre Dame track and field program entering the 2011-12 campaign as it looks to return to the top of the mountain in the BIG EAST Conference. With fresh faces and seasoned veterans dotting both teams, the men’s and women’s squads eagerly await their opportunities to battle it out with the best the BIG EAST has to offer.

The middle distance and distance portion of the track and field squad is stocked full of talent and has high expectations for the upcoming season. Four returning middle distance runners advanced to the NCAA East Regionals last season including seniors Kelly Lynch (3,000m steeplechase) and Johnathan Shawel (1,500m) and juniors J.P. Malette and Jeremy Rae (1,500m). Last year at the BIG EAST Indoor Championships, Shawel won the 1,000, Rae was victorious in the mile run and J.P. Malette finished third in the mile. Senior Jordan Carlson placed second in both the 1,000 and 3,000-meter runs. At the BIG EAST Outdoor Championships, Rae, Shawel and Malette all placed in the top five in the 1,500m run, with Rae winning the event and Shawel finishing second.

MEN’S TRACK AND FIELD Fresh off a pair of second-place finishes at last season’s BIG EAST Indoor and Outdoor Championships, the Irish return a veteran group, plus several talented newcomers, as they look to take the next step in returning to the top of the BIG EAST. Before last year’s two second place showings (in the indoor and outdoor), Notre Dame had won the 2010 indoor crown, and three straight outdoor titles. Despite losing some talented individuals off last year’s squad, head coach Joe Piane is excited about the prospects for the 201112 season. “We graduated a lot of talented performers from last year’s squad,” says Piane. “However, we feel like we brought in a pretty good group to help fill their shoes. The men’s team should be solid all the way through the lineup from sprints to distance and all the field events.”

SPRINTS/HURDLES Sprint and hurdle coaches Alan Turner and Amy Henry expect a strong season out of their 400-meter runners and hurdlers with sophomore Patrick Feeney leading the way. Feeney won both the indoor and outdoor BIG EAST 400 titles last year and qualified for the NCAA Regionals as a freshman and is back for his second year in the program. Also expected to help out in the 400 is incoming freshman Christopher Giesting. Last year, Giesting turned in the ninth fastest time in the country for a high school runner in the event. In the hurdle events, sophomore Jarrod Buchanon returns after just missing out on the finals of the 110 and 400 hurdles at last year’s BIG EAST Outdoor Championships. Buchanon and sophomore Bryce Wood are expected to provide a strong one-two punch in the hurdle events.

18

RELAYS In years past, Notre Dame has racked up huge number a of points off the relay events, and the upcoming season looks like more of the same. Key members of the 4x400 relay team that finished fourth at the BIG EAST Indoors and sixth at the BIG EAST Outdoors return as do members of the 4x800 relay that won both the indoor and outdoor crowns. These include senior Johnathan Shawel and junior Jeremy Rae. The 4x100 relay team that finished fifth at the BIG EAST Indoor Championships, and the distance medley relay team that finished fourth at the BIG EAST Outdoor Championships also return key members.

FIELD Last season several newcomers and underclassman finished within a few spots of scoring or earning all-conference honors at the BIG EAST Championships. Now a year older, the Irish expect these nowveterans to score big points at the conference championship meets. The veteran of the field group is senior pole vaulter Kevin Schipper. Schipper, who has won two BIG EAST titles in both indoor and outdoor, comes from a pole vaulting family that saw his older brother, Matt, win three BIG EAST crowns. A new Schipper enters the fold this year as freshman, David, is set to compete for the first time as a member of the Irish.

Other returnees that scored points at last year’s BIG EAST meets include high jumper Doug Onuscheck, long and triple jumper Logan Renwick and shot putter Andrew Hills. The Irish will need some other throwers to step up however, as they lost a trio of seniors in Greg Davis, John Belcher and Denes Veres that scored a combined 39 points in the BIG EAST meets last season.

MULTI-EVENTS Notre Dame has a pair of experienced heptathlon and decathlon competitors in junior Dean Odegard and sophomore Alex Blavis. Last year Odegard placed four in the decathlon and ninth in the heptathlon, while Blavis finished seventh in the heptathlon and fifth in the decathlon.

WOMEN’S TRACK AND FIELD After finishing a disappointing eighth and 10th, respectively, at the BIG EAST Indoor and Outdoor Championships, the Notre Dame women’s track and field team looks to assemble a team that could crack the upper tier of the BIG EAST as several talented freshmen take their first shot at conference rivals. Piane, as well as all the coaches, expects big things out of this 2011-12 group. “We brought in a very good freshman class,” says Piane. “It is evident by how many will be mentioned in this preview. We didn’t graduate much at all from last year. I think we will be significantly better across the board.”

SPRINTS/HURDLES The women’s sprint and hurdles group boast a young but talented group that welcomes back three regional qualifiers as well as an elite freshmen class. Sophomore Michelle Brown barely missed earning allBIG EAST accolades in the 400m, but did advance to the NCAA East Regionals in the event. Fellow sophomore Nevada Sorenson advanced to regionals in the 100 hurdles, while junior Megan Yanik competed at the regionals in the same event.

10/15/11 9:07 AM

Men’s & Women’s Track & Field Preview Turner and Henry were both quick to point out a potentially superstar duo in freshmen twins Kayla and Jade Barber. Kayla, who was ranked in the top-10 nationally last high school season in the 300 and 400 hurdles and the long jump, will have an immediate impact in a variety of events. Her sister Jade was nationally ranked in the 400 meters last year and will look to become an immediate contributor in the event. Another freshman that could step up for the Irish in the 400 hurdles and 500-meter run is Michelle Rotondo. Turner was quick to praise her endurance, which could make her an asset in the 500 meters.

FIELD

MIDDLE DISTANCE/DISTANCE

The Irish return Buttinger for her final season in the Notre Dame gold and blue. Buttinger has been a star for the Irish thus far, earning second place in the heptathlon at the BIG EAST Outdoor Championships all three years. She also has finished third as a freshman and fourth as a sophomore in the pentathlon at the BIG EAST Indoor Championships. In addition, Buttinger has competed at the NCAA Championships the last two years in the heptathlon.

Another strength of the women’s squad looks to be the middle distance and distance teams, who each return talent from a year ago. Sophomores Alexa Aragon and Kelly Curran and junior Rebecca Tracy each went to the NCAA East Regionals in the 1,500m run last season. At the BIG EAST Indoor Championships, Tracy won the indoor mile, while Aragon and Curran scored in the mile and 1,000m, respectively. Sophomore McKinzie Schulz also scored in the 1,000. Tracy also scored in the 1,500m at the BIG EAST Outdoor Championships. Looking to help out the middle distance squads will be a pair of high school state mile champs in Illinois’ Karen Lesiewicz and Delaware’s Emily Frydrych. In the longer distances, senior Rachel Velarde returns after advancing to regionals in the 10,000 meters. The Irish also get back junior Jessica Rydberg, who was injured as a sophomore, but was an All-American in the 10,000m as a freshman.

RELAYS Turner and Henry are excited about the potential of the 4x400-meter relay team with the addition of the Barber twins and the return of Brown and Sorenson. “The 4x400 relay team should have a good shot at competing for a BIG EAST title and a shot at the NCAAs if everyone can stay healthy,” says Turner. In other relay events, the Irish return plenty of veterans that helped the 4x800 and distance medley relays teams to fourth place finishes at the BIG EAST Championships last season.

In addition to her skills in the pentathlon and heptathlon, senior Maddie Buttinger has proven herself as a consistent high jumper, placing sixth in the BIG EAST Outdoor Championships last year. Other performers looking to score points for the Irish this season include pole vaulters Chrissy Finkel and Kelly Burke, Vivien Devaney, who throws the discus and Madeline Casanova and Mason Bashaw, who compete in the throwing events.

MULTI-EVENTS

SCHEDULE The Meyo Track plays host to four meets during the indoor season including the Blue & Gold Invitational (Dec. 2), Notre Dame Invitational (Jan. 21), Meyo Invitational (Feb. 3-4) and Alex Wilson Invitational (March 2-3).

Outdoor Track & Field Facility

Notre Dame’s new three-million dollar outdoor track will be the competition and practice site for the Irish track and field programs. Construction on the nine-lane facility began in June 2008.

One of the newest editions to the Notre Dame campus is the outdoor track and field complex. Groundbreaking ceremonies heralded the start of construction on the three-million dollar outdoor facility in June 2008. The new nine-lane track is located southeast of the Joyce Center and will be the competition and practice site for the Notre Dame men’s and women’s track and field teams. The track will meet IAAF guidelines with the widest possible turns, and one synthetic “D”zone will be located at the south end of the

track. Throwing and jumping events will be provided in two directions, and a warm-up area will be located at one end of the track. Fundraising efforts continue on the remaining five-million dollar stadium portion of the track facility. Lead gifts for the project have come from an anonymous benefactor, as well as six named Notre Dame supporters: • John Hatherly ’82, who ran track for the Irish as a miler and for whom the men’s locker room will be named.

• Dr. Bob Harris ’69, a chemistry major who played intramural football and has participated in Notre Dame’s Football Fantasy Camp. • Dr. Jim Kerrigan ’79, a monogram winner for the Notre Dame track team. • John Leahy ’84, who continues the Leahy athletic legacy at Notre Dame. • Mike Lukas ’79 MA, whose daughter, Katherine, will graduate from Notre Dame in 2010. • Rick and Emily Peltz (Rick is a South Bend/ Indianapolis businessman).

Groundbreaking ceremonies were held in June 2008 marking the start of construction on Notre Dame’s new outdoor track.

Head Coach JOE PIANE Head Coach 37th Season Loras College ’69

In 1889, track and field became the second varsity sport in school history. Now, 122 seasons later, student-athletes continue to represent the Fighting Irish across the nation on the track, in the field and on the cross country course. For the past 36 campaigns, Joe Piane has been leading the program - and shows no signs of stopping any time soon. The longest active tenured coach at Notre Dame, Piane begins his 37th season under the Golden Dome in the fall of 2011, having recently inked a multi-year contract extension. Piane’s tenure is now the second-longest of any coach in Fighting Irish history, trailing only baseball coach Jake Kline’s 42 seasons (1934-75). His teams continue to complete at the highest level, as the men’s cross country team advanced to the NCAA Championships for the 20th time in 27 seasons in 2010. The squad placed 25th in the nation and saw Dan Jackson and Jeremy Rae earn all-Region honors. The 2010-11 season also saw successes on the track. The men’s squad saw Jonathan Shawel, Patrick Feeney, Jack Howard and Jeremy Rae place fourth at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, earning All-America honors and marking the 21st-consecutive season at least one men’s runner earned All-America status. The Irish also placed second at the indoor and outdoor BIG EAST championships, with a total of seven individual league titles. The women’s season saw Maddie Buttinger advance to the NCAA Championships in the heptathlon, where she finished 12th, while Rebecca Tracy took home the title in the mile at the BIG EAST Indoor Championships. Piane will look to continue that success into the 2011-12 campaign and beyond. “I’m thrilled to know that I’ll be here at Notre Dame for the next several years and hopefully well beyond that until my retirement,” Piane said. “My family and I truly enjoy living in South Bend and being a part of the community here. I also value and appreciate the opportunity I have had to work at a place like Notre Dame because of the quality of the people I’ve been fortunate enough to work with. I have coached many very special studentathletes during my time here and seeing their development has been one of the most rewarding aspects of my job -- one that I’m eager to continue well into the foreseeable future.” Piane’s record at Notre Dame speaks for itself. Just consider the accomplishments Notre Dame athletes have made under Piane’s watchful eye: • Men’s cross country runners have earned AllAmerican status 26 times, with Patrick Smyth taking home the honor in 2008.

26

• A Notre Dame men’s cross country runner has appeared at the NCAA Championship meet in each of the past 21 years, while the men’s team has made the trip 20 out of the past 27 years. • The Notre Dame men’s cross country team has finished in the top 10 at the NCAA meet in 11 of the past 23 seasons, highlighted by third-place finishes in 1990 and 2005 (matching the program’s best showing since winning the 1957 NCAA title). • The Irish men’s cross country team has won five BIG EAST Conference titles since joining the league in 1995, including crowns in 2004 and 2005. What’s more Notre Dame men’s runners have earned all-BIG EAST honors 41 times, with a schoolrecord five runners receiving that distinction in ‘05. • The Irish men’s track and field team has earned 77 All-America citations since 1974 (with Jonathan Shawel, Patrick Feeney, Jack Howard and Jeremy Rae earning the honors in the distance medley relay in 2011), while the women’s team has received 43 such accolades since 1994 (most recently Jessica Rydberg in 2010). Combined, Piane has helped mentor 118 track and field AllAmericans (and 130 overall when including cross country honorees) during his tenure. • Both the Notre Dame men’s and women’s track and field teams were champions in 2007 with the Irish men taking the indoor title and the Irish women claiming their first outdoor team championship. The men also claimed the 2008 and 2009 BIG EAST outdoor titles and the 2010 BIG EAST indoor and outdoor titles. Overall the men’s team has won 11 BIG EAST titles (four indoor/seven outdoor), while the women’s squad has hoisted the hardware three times (two indoor/one outdoor). • In the school’s 14-year BIG EAST membership (1995-96 to present), Notre Dame athletes have won 131 conference individual or relay titles in track and field and cross country, with eight student-athletes named the conference’s outstanding track or field performer at its indoor or outdoor championship meets. A distance-coaching specialist, Piane is recognized across the nation as one of the best in the business. He has been named NCAA Division I National Cross Country Coach of the Year on two

different occasions (1987 and 2001) while garnering five district/regional coach-of-the-year honors and nine league cross country coach-of-the-year plaques. In total, Piane has earned or shared 28 league coach of the year awards (indoor track, outdoor track or cross country), including 16 BIG EAST Coaching Staff of the Year accolades in the past 12 years (1999-2010). In 2007 alone the Notre Dame staff earned two of those BIG EAST Coaching Staff of the Year honors, one for men’s indoor track and field and one for women’s outdoor track and field. They also racked up two more for men’s outdoor track and field in 2008 and 2009. Individually, Piane and his assistants at Notre Dame produced six All-Americans in track and field in 2009 with three during the indoor season and three during the outdoor season. Mary Saxer became Notre Dame’s first-ever women’s pole vault All-American, earning her first All-America honor at the NCAA Indoor Championships. She earned her second All-America citation at the outdoor meet later that season. Joanna Schultz earned her first All-America honor with an eighth-place finish in the 400 meters at the NCAA Indoor Championships. Jaclyn Espinoza finished third in the discus at the outdoor championships to earn her first AllAmerica recognition, as well. Smyth earned his sixth and seventh All-America honors in 2009. His combined seven All-America honors are the third most in Irish men’s track and field/cross country history behind only Ryan Shay (nine) and Luke Watson (eight). Piane’s success has not just been in the present, as three of his more successful pupils in recent years have been 10-time All-American Molly Huddle (2007), Shay (2001) and Watson (2002). Huddle finished her career under Piane with ten All-America certificates, a record for the most All-America selections by a Notre Dame athlete in any sport. The Elmira, N.Y., native had seven career BIG EAST championships, including back-to-back double victories in the 5,000-meters and the 10,000-meters in her last two seasons. Her seven championships are the most by any Irish woman and she joins former student-athlete Liz Grow as Notre Dame’s only athletes to be named the BIG

EAST Outstanding Outdoor Track Performer in two consecutive years (2006, 2007). She currently holds four Irish school records (indoor 3,000-meters & 5,000-meters/outdoor 5,000-meters & 10,000-meters). Huddle made news in the summer of 2011, when she set an American women’s record in the 5,000 meters. In 2001, Piane helped distance specialist Shay compile one of the greatest track seasons in Notre Dame history. The Central Lake, Mich., resident won the BIG EAST indoor 5,000-meters, the conference outdoor 5,000-meters and 10,000-meters and finished off the season in legendary style by becoming Notre Dame’s first individual NCAA champion since 1972 by taking first place in the 10,000 meters (29:05.44) at the NCAA Outdoor Championship in Eugene, Ore. Shay moved on to become one of the best marathon runners in the country, winning five U.S. titles as well as USA Running Circuit (USARC) titles in 2003 and 2004. Tragically, Shay’s life was cut short as he died suddenly during the running of the 2008 U.S. Olympic marathon trials in New York City. Shortly after helping steer Shay to the top of the college running mountain, Piane had similar success with Watson. Both men had set their sights on breaking the four-minute mile barrier at the Meyo Invitational in 2002, hoping that Watson would become just the second Irish runner to crack the mark. Piane helped assemble an outstanding field for the race, which was arguably the highlight of the entire collegiate indoor season. Watson did his part, scorching past the field in the final straight away to win in 3:58.83, easily a school-record time and briefly the fastest mile run in the world during the indoor season. Watson eventually moved on to garner All-America honors in the indoor mile, indoor 3,000-meters and outdoor 5,000-meters as well as taking home BIG EAST Championships in the mile, 3,000-meter steeplechase and outdoor 5,000-meters. In the summer of 2006, Watson returned to his alma mater as a member of the Irish men’s distance/cross country coaching staff. With Piane at the helm, the Notre Dame men’s cross country team has enjoyed six of its most successful seasons in the program’s history during the past ten years. In 2000, Piane helped the Irish recover from the loss of Shay due to injury and earn a ninth-place finish at the NCAA Championship meet.

With Shay back on the team in `01, Notre Dame achieved its highest-ever national ranking (fourth), won the BIG EAST Championship (Piane and his staff earned the league’s Coaching Staff of the Year award) and ended up sixth at the national meet to give the Irish (at the time) their highest team finish since 1993. In 2004, Notre Dame threatened to eclipse its best-ever ranking, as Piane deftly guided his charges from an unranked start all the way to a BIG EAST title and a No. 5 national ranking before placing 11th at the NCAA Championship. For his efforts, Piane and his aides garnered a second BIG EAST Men’s Cross Country Coaching Staff of the Year plaque. That set the stage for 2005’s successful run that culminated in Notre Dame’s return to the NCAA awards podium for the first time since 1990. In 1985, Piane was named a member of the United States National Track staff. As such, he was one of 40 collegiate coaches given the opportunity to coach a United States squad in international competition. During the summer of 1987 he did just that, guiding a team of American all-stars in meets held in England and Ireland. Upon the conclusion of the 1991 Notre Dame track season, Piane once again faced international competition as he was appointed coach of the U.S. Pan American juniors team for the games in Kingston, Jamaica. Piane became Midwest regional chairman for United States Olympic Development in the area of track and field in 1984. Piane’s other Olympic preparation experience came in `85 when he coached the North team in the National Sports Festival. He also coached the U.S. team against England in Birmingham, England. Piane has produced a winning record in all but one season with the Irish men’s cross country team and is also the creator of Notre Dame’s National Catholic Championship, an annual meet held on campus since 1980. The Irish running program continues to be a rapidly-growing entity thanks to Piane’s achievements. Continually searching for greater challenges, he also founded the Meyo Invitational and the Alex Wilson Invitational, both traditional indoor Notre Dame track and field meets. A 1969 graduate of Loras College, Piane ran both track and cross country for four years at the Dubuque, Iowa, institution. He captained Loras’ undefeated cross country squad as a senior, while excelling in middle distance events during the track

season. He was inducted into the Loras College Athletics Hall of Fame in the fall of 2002. Piane began his impressive coaching career in 1970. Working for the Peace Corps, he coached track and field and cross country at both the regional and national levels in the North African country of Morocco. Piane guided a top-ranked junior cross country team, sending three runners to Cambridge, England, for the International Cross Country Championship (now known as the IAAF World Championship) in 1972, where Morocco finished third. Several of those Moroccan runners went on to compete at the 1972 Summer Games in Munich, Germany, and one advanced to the 1976 Summer Games in Montreal, Canada. After returning to the United States in July 1972, Piane assisted the track and cross country programs at Western Illinois. During that time he earned a master’s degree in physical education. Born Aug. 6, 1947, in Westchester, Ill., Piane joined the Notre Dame staff in 1974 as an assistant track coach and physical education instructor with plans to stay on for just one year. He was named head track and cross country coach the following season. Piane and his wife, Mimi, reside in South Bend, with their son, Nick.

Head Coach TIM CONNELLY Head Women’s Cross Country Coach Assistant Track & Field Coach (Women’s Distance) 24th Season Notre Dame ’83 As the Notre Dame women’s cross country team continues to establish itself as one of the best in the nation, the man standing at the forefront of that emergence has been Tim Connelly. Now in his 24th season at Notre Dame, Connelly not only serves as the head coach of the Irish women’s cross country team, but also tutors the middle distance and distance runners during the indoor and outdoor track seasons. As one of the longest tenured active assistants at the University, he is closely involved with all aspects of the Notre Dame track and field/cross country program and is known as one of the best coaches in the Midwest. Since taking over the Irish women’s cross country program during its infancy in 1988, Connelly has helped Notre Dame reach unprecedented heights, finishing among the top 10 at the NCAA Championship four of the past nine seasons. Notre Dame also has garnered a trip to the NCAA awards podium twice, finishing in a program-best third place in 2002, followed by a fourth-place showing in 2004. However, that hardly begins to scratch the surface of Connelly’s accomplishments during his two-decade run at Notre Dame. The Irish women also have won three BIG EAST Conference titles (all in the past 10 seasons) and placed either first or second at five of the past 11 NCAA Great Lakes Regional meets. What’s more, Notre Dame runners have collected 15 All-America honors and 27 all-BIG EAST cross country citations since the Irish joined the conference in 1995-96. On the track, the Notre Dame women’s distance program has grown exponentially in recent years. Irish runners have earned no fewer than 20 All-America certificates, including 16 in the past 11 years alone, while Connelly’s athletes have advanced to NCAA Championship competition 35 times (14 indoors/21 outdoors). In addition, Notre Dame women’s distance runners have garnered all-conference status 65 times and won 11 BIG EAST individual titles (as well as the 2003 distance medley relay crown) during the past 16 seasons, with Rebecca Tracy becoming the most recent champion in the mile at the 2011 indoor championships. The Irish runners also have played a critical role in a pair of team titles at the BIG EAST Indoor Championship (2002, 2006) and one BIG EAST Outdoor Championship (2007), as well as nine runner-up finishes at conference meets (five indoor, four outdoor). For his efforts, Connelly has been richly rewarded with numerous coaching honors. He has been chosen for the BIG EAST Women’s Cross Country Coaching Staff of the Year award three times (2002, 2003, 2005) and has been part of the BIG EAST Women’s Indoor Track & Field Coaching Staff of the Year twice (2002, 2006) and the BIG EAST Women’s Outdoor Track & Field Coaching Staff of the Year once (2007).

Connelly’s distance runners helped the Irish women’s program to a fourth-place finish at the 2009 BIG EAST Outdoor Championships, while the women’s cross country squad finished sixth at the BIG EAST Championship with Lindsey Ferguson garnering allconference honors. The Irish also returned to the NCAA Championship for the first time since 2005. Under Connelly’s tutelage, Notre Dame’s distance program was able to excel in 2007, playing a large role in helping the Irish win their first BIG EAST outdoor championship since joining the league in 1995-96. Connelly produced six top-eight finishers to bring in points for the Irish. The women’s cross country team’s season ended with a third-place finish at the BIG EAST Cross Country Championships and a fifth-place finish at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional meet, just shy of a bid to the national meet. The conference finish was the fifth consecutive top-three BIG EAST finish by the Irish women. In 2007, Molly Huddle led the women’s distance with a runner-up performance in the 5,000-meters at the BIG EAST indoor championships and a double crown at the BIG EAST outdoor championships in the 5,000 meters and the 10,000 meters, only the third multiple winner of the honor since its inception in 1993, and the first back-to-back recipient since former Irish All-American Liz Grow took the hardware in 2001 and 2002. Her outdoor performance earned her BIG EAST Outstanding Outdoor Track Performer honors. At the NCAA Mideast Regional meet, she went on to win her fourth consecutive 5,000-meter title, to pave her way to the national meet where she became a 10-time All-American after taking third in the 5,000 meters. Connelly’s charges were at the forefront of a historic run in 2005-06, as Notre Dame came within 10 points at the conference’s outdoor meet of becoming the first school in 18 seasons to win the BIG EAST women’s “triple crown” (cross country, indoor track, outdoor track). It all started with an impressive 25-point win at the BIG EAST Cross Country Championship, with the 34-point Irish performance being the best scoring outing by any league school since 1994. Notre Dame had four of the top eight runners in the field, giving the Irish their largest-ever crop of all-conference honorees. That outing preceded a runner-up showing at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional, where Notre Dame once again was dominant up front with four of the top 10 runners in the meet. The Irish then capped the 2005 season with a seventh-place finish at the NCAA Championship, highlighted by a program-best three All-America performances (Stephanie Madia, Huddle and Sunni Olding). In fact, Madia’s third-place finish

and time of 19:48.4 were the best-ever by a Notre Dame woman, while Huddle joined Lauren King as the second three-time women’s cross country All-American in school history. Moving indoors on the track for the 2005-06 season, Jacqueline Carter and Brianne Schmidt made excellent strides in the middle distances, notching school records in the 800- and 1,000-meter runs, respectively. Madia was strong at the longer distances, peaking well late in the year with two of the top-four 5,000-meter times in school history before earning her second All-America honor with a fourth-place finish at the NCAA Championship. Huddle then took center stage during the 2006 outdoor season, posting the nation’s fastest times at both 5,000- and 10,000-meters, and becoming only the second woman in BIG EAST history to win both races at the conference meet. She went on to be named the BIG EAST Outstanding Outdoor Track Performer, as well as the USTFCCCA Great Lakes District Outdoor Track Athlete of the Year and won her third NCAA Mideast Regional 5,000-meter title in as many tries. Huddle’s season ended just short of the brass ring, as she finished second in the 5,000 meters at the NCAA Championships, still the best placement ever by an Irish women’s track athlete in any event. She also garnered her ninth All-America citation. In 2004, Huddle had one of the most prolific seasons in Irish track and field history. She was an AllAmerican in the indoor 3,000- and 5,000-meter runs as well as the outdoor 5,000 meters. Connelly accompanied Huddle as she competed in the United States Olympic Trials, eventually finishing seventh in the 5,000 meters as the top non-professional/collegian in the race. A year earlier, Connelly guided Huddle to AllAmerica honors in the indoor 3,000 meters and outdoor 5,000 meters. Huddle capped that season by running away with the U.S. Junior 3,000-meter title at the national meet in Palo Alto, Calif. A 1983 Notre Dame graduate, Connelly ran both cross country and track for the Irish. Following his graduation, Connelly served as a graduate assistant coach under Joe Piane while working toward his master’s degree in business. In 1986, Connelly moved on to Syracuse as an assistant cross country and track coach. During his time in central New York, he coached the men’s and women’s middle distance and distance runners and managed recruiting duties for both programs. A native of Pittsburgh, Pa., Connelly and his wife, the former Donna Southerly, are the parents of two children -- daughter, Alexandra, and son, Brendon.

championships and earned a 12th place finish at the NCAA Championships. During the season, Buttinger won the heptathlon at the Polytan Invitational and placed third at the Alabama Relays. The 2009-10 season saw Beltran mentor Veres to all-BIG EAST honors in shot put, the fourth such honor of Veres’ career. Greg Davis and Mitchell Gromley also received all-conference accolades in the hammer throws. All told, the Irish sent nine throwers (men’s and women’s) to NCAA regionals, while Veres, Jaclyn Espinoza and Elise Knutzen advanced to the NCAA Championships. It marked the fourth-straight appearance at NCAAs for Espinoza, the first time a Notre Dame woman qualified for the season’s final meet in program history. Knutzen became the first javelin thrower to advance to the chamionships, while Davis (weight throw), Atang (shot put) and Veres (shot put) all set school records. For his efforts, Beltran was named the Great Lakes Regional Assistant Coach of the Year. Beltran helped Espinoza earn an All-America honor in the discus with a third-place finish at the 2009 NCAA Outdoor Championships, as well as the BIG EAST outdoor meet. Jeff Mensch also became a BIG EAST champion in the hammer throw. Seven Irish throwers qualified for the NCAA regional meet, while six Notre Dame student-athletes earned all-BIG EAST honors during the 2008-09 season. Beltran guided the Irish throwers to seven all-BIG EAST honors in 2008, including Brandon Drenon’s first BIG EAST outdoor title in the discus. Six of Beltran’s athletes qualified for the NCAA Mideast Regionals. Alyissa Hasan earned all-BIG EAST and All-America

honors in the pentathlon. She also garnered all-conference honors for her heptathlon performance at the BIG EAST Outdoor Championships. Espinoza finished 25th in the discus at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. Prior to joining the Notre Dame staff, Beltran was on the track and field staff at Saint Francis (Pa.) University where he worked with the Red Flash throwers and oversaw the program’s recruiting efforts. Under his tutelage, 20 St. Francis student-athletes won Northeast Conference (NEC) titles in the men’s and women’s weight throw, javelin, hammer throw, discus and women’s shot put. During his tenure at St. Francis, Beltran watched 17 Red Flash throwing records fall in the men’s and women’s indoor shot put, discus, javelin, women’s outdoor shot put and the men’s hammer and weight throws. In 2007, Lisa Morse earned the Outstanding Field Performer award at the NEC Outdoor Championships, while Dian Gmiter went on to win the same award at the indoor league meet. Before his stint at St. Francis, Beltran served as an assistant coach at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. He worked with throwers and coached athletes to Mid-Continent Conference titles in the shot put and the javelin. Nine of his athletes went on to break school track and field records under his watch. A 1999 graduate of UMKC, the Austin, Texas, native earned his bachelor of liberal arts degree with an emphasis in American studies and a minor in black studies/cultural anthropology. He has earned USA Track and Field Level I and Level II certifications.

Amy Henry is in her fourth season as an assistant track and field coach at Notre Dame, working with the Irish sprinters and hurdlers. In her third season at Notre Dame, Henry helped Nevada Sorenson reach the first round of the NCAA Championships. Henry also assisted in the development of Megan Yanik and Patrick Feeney, a first round NCAA qualifier. Feeney also was a BIG EAST champion during his first year with the Irish. Henry helped guide Joanna Schultz to her first All-America honor with an eighth-place finish at the 2009 NCAA Indoor Championships. In 2010 Schultz won the BIG EAST outdoor 400-meter title and qualified for the NCAA outdoor meet in the same event.

Buttinger also qualified in the heptathlon for her first NCAA championship appearance. She went on to finish 19th in the event. Garnham led the Irish jumpers to an outstanding season during the 2008-09 season that included two All-America honors and four BIG EAST titles. Mary Saxer earned her first All-America honor with a ninth-place pole vault finish at the 2009 NCAA Indoor Championships and then followed that with a third-place, All-American performance at the outdoor meet.

Kevin Schipper was the third Irish pole vaulter to earn all-BIG EAST honors with a second-place finish at the league’s indoor meet in the same event.

Justin Schneider qualified for the 2009 NCAA Outdoor Championships in the decathlon, where he finished in 20th place. He was also the runner up in the decathlon at the BIG EAST Conference Championships.

In three years at Notre Dame, Garnham has coached three All-Americans, nine NCAA Qualifiers, nine NCAA Regional Qualifiers, nine BIG EAST Conference Champions, and 18 all-BIG EAST performers. Garnham joined the Irish staff after a three-year stint as the field events coach at the University of Tulsa. During his tenure, he coached an NCAA qualifier in the shot put, a USATF indoor shot put qualifier, 17 NCAA Midwest Regional qualifiers, four Conference USA champions and 20 all-C-USA athletes. His studentathletes also set 18 school records at Tulsa.

He coached a USATF indoor heptathlon qualifier, a Canadian Olympic trials qualifier in the women’s heptathlon, two NCAA qualifiers, four NCAA East Regional qualifiers and five MidAmerican Conference champions. Garnham earned his bachelor’s degree in history from Kent State in 1998.

Regarded as one of the top sprint coaches in the Missouri Valley Conference (MVC) during his five-year tenure, Turner mentored 17 MVC champions during his tenure and 25 individuals who earned runner-up finishes. In addition, Saluki student-athletes earned allMVC honors on 65 occasions. He also coached 25 NCAA regional qualifiers and one NCAA National qualifier. In 2009-10, Turner steered his sprint and hurdle corps to three school records and five Missouri Valley individual titles in 2009-10. Kandise Thompson set the new SIU standard with a 54.24 in the 400m indoors as well as part of the 4x400m relay team that broke the school record by almost 4 seconds with a 3:39.51. Kendra Deck broke the 400H record 3 times and set the new standard at 58.61 finishing 14th at the NCAA West Regional. Tredene Davis was also under the old record during the same race with Deck at the regional meet. Brandon Deloney continued to dominate the 200m in the MVC again sweeping the conference titles at the indoor and outdoor meets. Meredith Hayes also continued her reign in the short hurdles winning the MVC titles for the second straight year in the 60H indoor and 100H outdoor. Sammy Biggs won the outdoor 400m title. The women’s team won the outdoor Missouri Valley title for the 2nd straight year by 44 ½ point margin. In 2009, sprinter Meredith Hayes captured both the 60-meter hurdles (indoor) and 100-meter hurdles (outdoor) titles at the respective MVC league championship meets. In doing so, she established the MVC Indoor Championship meet 60H record at 8.40. His athletes yielded 19 all-MVC accolades in 2008 along with six MVC titles and eight NCAA Mid-East Regional invitations. Freshman Brandon Deloney won the MVC 200m titles at both the indoor and outdoor championships. In doing so he set SIU’s McAndrew Stadium record at 20.83 during the outdoor meet. Deloney finished the 2008 season with 4 MVC titles, All-Mideast Region in 4x400m and a USATF Jr. National All-American in the 200m. Sophomores Stevie Warren and Sammy Biggs Warren captured MVC titles in the 100m and 400m indoor respectivley. Warren, Deloney, Biggs along with senior Antoine Jennings swept the relays at the MVC meet in NCAA regional qualifying times and the quartet finished with All-MidEast regional honors in the 4x400m relay finishing 6th.

In Turner’s first season with the Salukis, he directed the efforts of Felix Anderson, who finished as the highpoint scorer at the 2006 MVC Indoor Championships. Anderson won the 400-meters and took runner-up in the 200-meters. Anderson also captured the outdoor 200-meters title and was a regional qualifier in the 200-meters, 400-meters and 4x100-meter events. Prior to his arrival at Southern Illinois, Turner spent two years (2004-05) at Proviso East High School (Maywood, Ill.) as an assistant coach in the sprints and horizontal jumps. While at Proviso East he coached one Junior National Champion, three Junior National qualifiers, two Illinois High School Association (IHSA) state champions, three all-state honorees and six sectional champions. Three of his athletes from the ‘04 squad received Division I track scholarships. Before taking the job Proviso East, Turner assisted triple jumper Kamau Sullivan in qualifying for the USATF Nationals in 1993 and 1994, as a member of the Nike Indiana Track Club. An accomplished student-athlete in his own right, Turner knows a few things about performing for a high-caliber program. A 1992 graduate of Indiana University, Turner was a three-time All-American for the Hoosiers. He won five Big Ten titles (two long jump, two 400-meters and one 4x400-meter relay) and was a three-time team captain while leading Indiana to five consecutive Big Ten Conference team crowns. In 1991, he captured the NCAA indoor long jump title and was runner-up at the NCAA outdoor championships that same year. He also qualified for the NCAA Championships in the 400-meters and 4x100-meter relay. More than 18 years since accomplishing that feat, Turner still holds the Indiana record in the outdoor long jump. Outside of collegiate competition, Turner finished in the top-eight in the long jump at the USA Outdoor Championships four times. He was a member of five U.S. National teams and even won the gold medal at the ‘91 World University Games in the long jump. A native of North Chicago, Ill., Turner earned a bachelor’s degree in public finance from Indiana. Professionally, Turner has worked as a trading assistant with Conseco Capital Management (Carmel, Ind.) and as a portfolio manager with First Chicago and Bank One (Chicago, Ill.).

Home Cross Country Meets Notre Dame Invitational The Notre Dame Invitational is one of the nation’s oldest and largest intercollegiate cross country meets. It is annually run at the University of Notre Dame Golf Course. The Invitational was started by former Irish head coach Alex Wilson in 1956 and regularly features runners from approximately 60 schools around the country. A 5,000-meter women’s race was added in 1987 to the current men’s event (lengthened from four to five miles in 1968).
