DE PAUL UNIVERSITY INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Athletics Department at DePaul University is consistent with the purposes, goals and ideals of the University and Student Affairs. Primary to our purpose is to maximize the great potential of our students by exposing them to the wide variety of intercollegiate programs so vital to their total education. Complementing their more formal classroom education, the Athletics Department strives to teach and develop lifelong values inherent in the Vincentian character: integrity, leadership, competition, loyalty, cooperation, fair-play, self-confidence, sacrifice and physical fitness among others. At the same time, athletic participation brings together men and women students from diverse ethnic, socioeconomic, cultural and geographic backgrounds possessing various, unique skills working together towards common success, and a commitment to excellence. Furthermore, athletics provides the campus community, our urban neighbors in Chicago, and alumni the opportunity for participation in the form of recreation and as spectators for intercollegiate competition. The Athletics Department also has a unique opportunity and responsibility, as the most visible messenger of the DePaul story, to represent the highest qualities and standards of our education to an observant community, state and nation. A clear, positive exposure of DePaul University, through athletics, can enhance the University’s mission and image, and directly effect the quality of faculty, enrollment and development. Not unimportant to our Mission is the emotion, school spirit and morale, so crucial to the soul of the University, that can be uplifted through participation in athletics. Media guides, photographs, feature ideas, results and statistics are always available from the DePaul Media Relations Office.

ERIN CHASTAIN Head Coach | Third Season

DePaul head coach Erin Chastain enters her third season leading the women’s soccer program in 2009 after being named the program’s third head coach on Mar. 1, 2007. Her first season saw the Blue Demons go 5-13-1, and in the process Chastain was able to implement her style of play. DePaul opened the season by winning the Cleveland State Fall Classic and proved to be a difficult opponent in BIG EAST play as nine of the final 10 matches of the season were decided by one goal. Her efforts on the recruiting trail are paying off already as DePaul’s incoming class was ranked No. 21 in the Great Lakes Region by Soccer Buzz. She followed up the 2007 campaign with a youthful club a year ago that routinely featured nine starters who were either freshmen or sophomores. The Blue Demons showed a knack for scoring as they put together a three-match streak with 11 goals for the most in three games since the 2004 campaign while also running the program’s unbeaten streak in overtime matches to 13 straight since Sept. 2004. Prior to arriving in Chicago, Chastain spent five seasons at national soccer power Santa Clara as an assistant coach. During her tenure with the Broncos, the program reached the championship game of the 2002 NCAA Championship, the semifinals in 2004 and the quarterfinals in 2005. She also helped the program to West Coast Conference titles in four of her five seasons. As the lead recruiter, she landed three classes from 2002-06 ranked in the nation’s top four by Soccer America. The 2002 recruiting class was the top-ranked in the United States followed by a No. 4 slot in 2004. Her final recruiting class for Santa Clara, which began play in 2007, was ranked third among all NCAA Division I programs. Chastain also spent time during her first three seasons at Santa Clara working with several youth teams in the Bay Area, including the DeAnza Strykers and the North Valley Tornadoes. She also coordinated the Santa Clara Soccer Camps from 2002-05. The five-week camp served over 1,000 campers each summer. She returns to the Chicagoland area where she started her collegiate coaching career. Prior to heading west, Chastain spent three seasons as Northwestern’s top assistant coach. During her tenure with the Wildcats, she also served as the head coach of

JEAN LENTI PONSETTO Athletics Director

One of the nation’s most widely respected leaders in intercollegiate athletics and a driving force behind the continuing expansion and development of DePaul’s athletics program, Jean Lenti Ponsetto is now in her eighth year as DePaul’s Director of Athletics and her 35th as a member of the Blue Demon athletic family. Ponsetto was named to her current position on July 1, 2002 and the Blue Demons have experienced tremendous success both on and off the playing field ever since. She also guided the DePaul efforts in 2003 when the University announced it would join the BIG EAST Conference in 2005. An advocate for student-athlete welfare, Ponsetto initiated and provided the leadership for the Sullivan-McGrath Athletics Capital Campaign which has yielded the funding resources for the renovation of Wish Soccer Field, the creation of the Cacciatore Softball Stadium and renovation of the Cherry Family Indoor Track at the Ray Meyer Center. During her seven years at the helm of the department, 14 of the 15 Blue Demon athletic programs have represented the school in NCAA championships including seven straight NCAA appearances by the women’s basketball team, two trips to the Women’s College World Series for the softball program, and the men’s soccer program’s initial trip to the NCAA Tournament after winning the BIG EAST Conference regular season title. Success has also come in the classroom during Ponsetto’s tenure as the athletics director as over 700 Blue Demon student-athletes have been named to conference academic honor rolls. The 2008-09 academic year saw the men’s track and field program post the highest cumulative grade-point average in the country by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. Among the 16 programs in the BIG EAST Conference, the Blue Demons led the way academically in women’s basketball, men’s cross country, women’s cross country, men’s soccer, women’s tennis, men’s indoor track and field, and men’s outdoor track and field. In the Spring of 2009, she was named Under Armour AD of the Year for the NCAA Division I Central Region.

His expertise has led to service on numerous external committees and boards. In January 2009, Father Holtschneider was appointed to the Illinois Reform Commission and was appointed to the School Board of the Archdiocese of Chicago for a three-year term. He is a member of the National Leadership Roundtable on Church Management, which promotes excellence and best practices in management, finances and human resource development of the Catholic Church in the U.S. In addition, he currently serves as a trustee of Niagara University and the Chicago History Museum, and he is a director of the Economic Club of Chicago. He also chairs the Education Advisory Board of the Chicago 2016 Committee, working to bring the Olympics to Chicago, and he is on the Board of Directors of the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities. He is a trustee for Ascension Health, the nation’s largest Catholic and largest nonprofit health system. A Detroit native, he earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Niagara in 1985. He studied for the priesthood at Mary Immaculate Seminary in Northampton, Pa., and was ordained in 1989. Father Holtschneider studied at Harvard University and received his doctorate in administration, planning and social policy in 1997 after writing a dissertation on the early history of financial aid in the United States. He has been a case researcher and writer for Harvard’s schools of Education, Medicine and Public Health. After ordination, Father Holtschneider served as director and then rector of the Vincentian Community’s college seminary program at Ozone Park in New York City. While in New York, he served as a clinical associate professor of higher education at the State University of New York at Buffalo, teaching one doctoral seminar each fall. Currently, he is a faculty member and board member of the Boston College Institute for Administrators in Catholic Higher Education. He continues to teach at Boston College’s summer Institute for Administrators in Catholic Higher Education. Ponsetto currently serves the NCAA as a member of the Division I Men’s Basketball Enhancement Group and is an NCAA Champion, a program highlighting key NCAA administrators to act as spokespeople from the membership on NCAA issues. Ponsetto also chairs the Honda Awards Board of Directors and the Wade Trophy Selection Committee and is the past president of NACWAA and a member of the NACDA Division I-AAA Board of Directors. In recent years, Ponsetto served on the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Issues Committee, the Division I Women’s Basketball Task Force, the Division I Recruiting/Early Scholarship Offer Working Group, the NCAA Amateurism Clearinghouse Advisory Group and the NCAA Work/Life Balance Task Force. Ponsetto also served as a member of the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Marketing Committee, which developed a plan for the potential growth in attendance and television viewership for both men’s and women’s basketball. Since moving into an administrative position over 20 years ago at DePaul, Ponsetto has had a significant impact on the status of the DePaul intercollegiate sports scene. She introduced four women’s sports - indoor and outdoor track, cross country and women’s soccer - to varsity status at DePaul. Under her direction DePaul has built several athletic facilities including the Sullivan Athletic Center that opened in 2000, the Ray Meyer Fitness Recreation Center that opened in 1999 and the recently completed projects in Cacciatore Stadium, Wish Field and the Cherry Family Indoor Track. Recently she negotiated long-term contracts with Ruffled Feathers Golf Club as home for the men’s golf program as well as Lane Stadium as a home for the men’s and women’s outdoor track and field teams. Ponsetto is a member of both NACDA and NACWAA and is also involved in several community and charitable organizations. Following graduation from DePaul in 1978, the former four-sport standout was named the school’s first assistant women’s basketball coach by then head coach Doug Bruno. Her work within the Chicago sports scene has been duly noted. Ponsetto was named one of the top 100 most influential women in Chicago by the Chicago Sun-Times (she was ranked second in sports category behind Chicago Bears owner Virginia McCaskey) in 2004. Ponsetto was inducted into the Chicagoland Sports Hall of Fame in 2007, whose membership includes Ray Meyer, Mike Ditka, Walter Payton and Michael Jordan. Married to former Blue Demon basketball star Joe Ponsetto, the current Assistant Village Manager and Village Prosecutor in west suburban Maywood, she comes from a family intertwined in education and athletics. One brother, Frank Lenti, is head football coach at Mt. Carmel High School in Chicago. In the fall of 1999, the Chicago Tribune named Frank as the high school football coach of the century in Illinois. Another brother, David, is an assistant under Frank with the Caravan. Two other brothers work for the DePaul athletics department as Michael is the Director of Athletic Facilities and Eugene is the school’s all-time winningest coach as the head softball coach. Jeanne’s sister Marilyn, who recently retired as the Teacher Coordinator for Students with Learning Disabilities in south suburban Dolton, is a DePaul graduate as are Eugene and David.

Student-athletes at DePaul University are just that: students first and athletes second. Earning a degree is a top priority for every student-athlete at DePaul. n In DePaul’s first four years of BIG EAST membership, a total of 511 student-athletes have been named to the BIG EAST All-Academic Team. A record total of 144 student-athletes were named to the team following the 2008-09 academic year after 133 were named to the team in 2007-08 and 127 had a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better for the recognition in 2006-07. Following the first BIG EAST campaign in 2005-06, a total of 107 earned league academic recognition. n Seven of DePaul’s 15 athletic programs claimed the BIG EAST Team Excellence Award in 2007-08 for having the top team GPA among the league program’s in each sport. Women’s basketball, men’s cross country, women’s cross country, men’s soccer, women’s tennis, men’s indoor track and field and men’s outdoor track and field held the top team GPA among their peers. The men’s track and field program held the nation’s highest cumulative GPA when the team was honored by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. Individually, Terah Cheatham from the women’s cross country team, Cory Blenkush from the golf program, and women’s tennis student-athlete Dunja Antunovic were selected as the 2008-09 BIG EAST Scholar-Athlete Sport Excellence Award winners in their respective sports. The Scholar-Athlete Sport Excellence Awards are given to one student-athlete in each BIG EAST sport based on academic credentials, athletic accolades or performances and volunteer service to the community. n A total of 120 student-athletes were named to DePaul University’s Dean’s List for the Fall 2008 and Winter 2009 academic quarters for holding a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher. Softball student-athlete Amber Patton was named a second team ESPN the Magazine Academic All-American and was a finalist for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award that recognizes excellence in the classroom, character and community, as well as competition on the field. Brian Visser (first team), Nathan Feltz (third team) and Peter Sterbenz (third team) of the men’s soccer team were named NSCAA/adidas All-Scholar Region honorees.

TRUE STUDENT-ATHLETES

In the last nine seasons, the women’s soccer program has placed 161 student-athletes on conference academic honor rolls. In five Conference USA seasons, a total of 90 players earned a spot on the C-USA Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll followed by 71 members of the BIG EAST All-Academic Team in DePaul’s four years of BIG EAST membership. Seventeen members of the 2005 squad and 14 from the 2006 team were named to the BIG EAST All-Academic Team while 19 earned the honor in 2007 before a program-best 21 in 2008. Erin Walter and Amy Witt finished their careers with multiple academic honors. Walter was DePaul’s first ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American as a third team honoree in 2004 and Witt earned second team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District honors in 2005.

n In the newest data submitted to the NCAA, the commitment of DePaul student-athletes toward graduation is evident. DePaul’s Academic Progress Rate (APR) for women’s soccer is 980. This rate measures both the eligibility and retention of student-athletes receiving any level of athletics aid. The women’s basketball, golf, softball and women’s tennis teams were recognized by the NCAA for their outstanding academic APR performances. Each program was recognized by the NCAA for having multi-year APR scores in the top 10 percent of all squads in their respective sports. DePaul’s total of four teams honored represents the fourth-highest total among all BIG EAST schools. Golf, softball and women’s tennis all maintained a perfect four-year rolling rate of 1000. Golf was one of seven BIG EAST programs on the list while women’s tennis is one of six conference schools to earn the honor. The DePaul softball program is one of four teams ranked in the top 25 and just one of five BIG EAST programs to garner the academic honors. The women’s basketball program was one of three BIG EAST teams honored and just one of eight to receive the Public Recognition Award and play in the NCAA Championship this season. n This off-the-field success comes from key factors at DePaul. First, DePaul’s academic standards require student-athletes to: acomplete a minimum of eight hours of placeable credits per quarter, aa minimum cumulative grade-point average of 2.0, ameet with athletic academic advising staff.

n Despite its growing enrollment, DePaul maintains a small school atmosphere. DePaul boasts an excellent faculty-to-student ratio of 17-1, although classes of 15-25 students are quite common. This provides an ideal setting for personal academic attention - one of DePaul’s most unique qualities. n A student who is not as well prepared may need more help with understanding how to succeed in the college system. Ultimately, the student makes the decision. DePaul provides a strong academic support system for each student-athlete, but it’s the student’s motivation and ability to take the assistance that makes the difference. This approach helps students build the decision-making skills they need to succeed in life. n Handling a college sports schedule can be very demanding, but understanding the stress and time demands that accompany college athletics allows DePaul’s Athletic Academic Advising department to give each student the support and guidance needed to launch a successful academic career. By working closely with an extensive network of professors, administrators and student-athletes, the advisors insure that each Blue Demon reaches his or her full academic potential. The staff personally assists each student-athlete with class selection, scheduling, tutoring, and, most importantly, establishing good study skills. They also communicate regularly with professors about each student’s course work and maintain records of each student-athlete’s progress toward graduation. The advisors continue assisting studentathletes through graduation, not just until their eligibility expires. Their services include tutoring, advising, course selection and conducting the NCAA Life Skills Program. n To help facilitate the success of student-athletes, Athletic Academic Advising works closely with the offices of Professional Career Development and Placement, Residence Life, University Ministry, Student Financial Aid, Student Life, Student Counseling Services, and the Writing Center. At a high-profile school like DePaul, that’s important.

n The city of Chicago, America’s third-largest city, is home to DePaul University and offers a student-athlete a variety of opportunities. n Incorporated as a town of 350 people in 1833, Chicago is known as a city of neighborhoods. Nearly 200 areas of the city contain their own distinct characteristics and flavor. n With a city population of nearly three million people and a metropolitan population of over eight million residents, the “Windy City” offers endless options of entertainment, education and exploration. n The city itself is graced with blue skies and blue waters, thus Chicago provides countless opportunities for indoor and outdoor activities. Lake Michigan and its miles of beach front is within walking distance of DePaul’s Lincoln Park Campus. With 29 miles of lakefront, including a 22-mile bike path, summer in the city provides multiple opportunities for relaxing along Lake Michigan. n Chicago is also America’s greenest metropolitan area, featuring 560 city parks along with a variety of museums and zoos. Lincoln Park Zoo, the world’s largest free public zoo, is just blocks from DePaul’s Lincoln Park campus. Dozen of restaurants, cafes, theaters and stores are also within walking distance of the Lincoln Park campus, and an easy-to-learn mass transit system connects campus to the entire Chicagoland area.

With 30 years under its belt, the BIG EAST Conference continues on a path of success in and out of the athletic arena. The goals have always been the same. The league wants and expects to compete at the highest level and does so with integrity and sportsmanship. The commendable performances of the student-athletes at BIG EAST schools are the indicators of the league’s proud tradition of success. The BIG EAST has gone through membership changes since its birth, but the 2009-10 academic year will mark the conference’s fifth straight with the same 16-member group, the nation’s largest Division I-A conference. In 2008-09, BIG EAST student-athletes again succeeded on the national stage. The Connecticut women’s basketball team won its sixth national championship by defeating conference foe Louisville in an all-BIG EAST NCAA title game. The Notre Dame women’s soccer team reached the NCAA championship game and the Syracuse field hockey squad advanced to the NCAA Final Four. Three BIG EAST women’s cross country teams finished in the top 10 at the NCAA Championships. West Virginia was fourth followed by Villanova in sixth place and Georgetown in ninth. Individually in women’s sports, Providence’s Dannette Doetzel won the 10,000 meters at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Connecticut’s Maya Moore was the conference’s sixth winner of the Wade Trophy as the top player in women’s basketball. Notre Dame’s Kerri Hanks won the Hermann Trophy, the top award in women’s soccer. On the men’s side, Connecticut and Villanova advanced to the Final Four in basketball. The 2008-09 campaign was arguably the best men’s basketball season in the history of the BIG EAST with the league setting NCAA standards with three No. 1 tournament seeds, four teams in the round of the Elite Eight and five in the Sweet 16. The St. John’s men’s soccer team reached the NCAA College Cup before losing in the national semifinals. BIG EAST football has maintained its high profile and its reputation as a balanced group. Seven of the league’s eight squads were nationally ranked or received votes in the national polls in 2008. Cincinnati was the league champion. The BIG EAST, a charter member of the Bowl Championship Series, has won three of its last four BCS bowl games. West Virginia, Louisville and Connecticut also have won or shared league crowns over the past four seasons. The BIG EAST has continued to produce student-athletes who were at the forefront of athletic and academic achievement. In 2008-09, 19 BIG EAST players were chosen to their respective ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Teams, including eight first-team selections. Nearly 400 student-athletes have earned academic all-America honors.

The BIG EAST became the nation’s largest Division I-A conference in 2005-06 when five new members began competing. The new schools were: University of Cincinnati, DePaul University, University of Louisville, Marquette University and the University of South Florida. BIG EAST institutions reside in nine of the nation’s top 34 largest media markets, including New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Tampa, Pittsburgh, Hartford, Milwaukee and Cincinnati. With its newest members, BIG EAST markets contain almost one fourth of all television households in the U.S. Since opening its doors in 1979, the league has won 26 national championships in six different sports and 126 student-athletes have won individual national titles. The BIG EAST has enjoyed tremendous basketball success, especially in this decade. In 2008-09, the BIG EAST produced four of the eight Final Four teams in men’s and women’s basketball. It was only the second time in NCAA history that one conference placed that many Final Four teams in the same season. In 2003-04, Connecticut became the first school in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s NCAA basketball titles in the same season. In ’02-03, the BIG EAST became the first conference in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s titles in the same year when the Syracuse men and the Connecticut women captured their respective national championships. In men’s basketball, BIG EAST squads have won three of the last 11 NCAA championships. BIG EAST women’s teams have taken six of the last 10 NCAA titles. Proactive movement has been a signature strategy for the conference that was born in 1979. The BIG EAST continually turns challenges into opportunities to become stronger. In 2009-10, the BIG EAST will add men’s lacrosse to its growing list of sports, which will increase its total to 24 sport championships. The first women’s golf championship was held in the spring of 2003. Women’s lacrosse and rowing were added in 2001. The BIG EAST became a reality on May 31, 1979, following a meeting of athletic directors from Providence College, St. John’s, Georgetown and Syracuse universities. Seton Hall, Connecticut and Boston College completed the original seven school alliance. While the membership has both increased and changed, the focus of the BIG EAST has not wavered. The conference reflects a tradition of broad based programs, led by administrators and coaches who place a constant emphasis on academic integrity. Its student athletes own significantly high graduation rates and their record of scholastic achievement notably show a balance between intercollegiate athletics and academics. Any successful organization has been fortunate to have outstanding leadership. Michael Tranghese, the league’s first full-time employee, and for 11 years the associate to Dave Gavitt, became Commissioner in 1990. In his first year, he administered the formation of the BIG EAST Football Conference. For 2009-10, the BIG EAST will undergo one significant change. Tranghese stepped down from his position on June 30, 2009. John Marinatto, who has served as senior associate commissioner, has moved into the Commissioner’s chair. The league has long been considered a leader in innovative concepts in promotion and publicity, particularly regarding television. Those efforts have resulted in unparalleled visibility for BIG EAST student-athletes. The conference has enjoyed long-standing relationships with CBS, ESPN, Inc. and ABC. BIG EAST men’s basketball games are regular sellouts at campus and major public arenas, including the annual men’s BIG EAST Championship in Madison Square Garden. The women’s basketball championship has led all conferences in attendance for the past six years. Attendance figures also are significant in soccer and baseball. More than 550 BIG EAST student-athletes have earned all America recognition and dozens have won individual NCAA national championships. The BIG EAST has been well represented in U.S. or foreign national and Olympic teams. Several athletes earned gold medals in each of the last six summer Olympiads. The BIG EAST has its headquarters in Providence where the conference administers to more than 5,500 athletes.

With the Chicago Transit Authority’s “L” trains rumbling by every few minutes, Wish Field is a one-of-a-kind facility that gives a true urban setting for the DePaul men’s and women’s soccer programs. n Wish Field is nestled in the heart of DePaul’s Lincoln Park campus and is the home to not only the DePaul men’s and women’s soccer teams, but also DePaul’s nationally-ranked softball program. Surrounded by McCabe Hall, Courtelyou Commons and Corcoran Hall, Wish Field is located on Belden Ave. just east of the Fullerton “L” station. n Prior to the 2005 season, the facility received a complete facelift with a FieldTurf surface installed, a soccer-only press box, new scoreboard and covered team benches. The setup is unique in that the DePaul softball program is able to use the field in the Spring when the FieldTurf tray system allows the facility to be converted into a softball field. Available for use year-round, the Blue Demons are able to train and compete throughout the entire year. n The press box features high-speed internet, phone lines and wireless capability for radio and video broadcasts. Ample space is provided inside the press box for working media and a platform on top of the press box is available for team videotaping and broadcasts. n The men’s soccer team has hosted BIG EAST Championship games in each of the last two seasons at Wish Field with wins over Cincinnati in 2007 and Pittsburgh in 2008. The first BIG EAST Championship game at Wish Field was on Nov. 10, 2007 when the Blue Demons defeated Cincinnati, 1-0, in a quarterfinal match. Last season saw DePaul knock off Pittsburgh, 3-1, in the first round on Nov. 5, 2008.
