Following a 2008 campaign in which Loyola Marymount suffered its first sub-.500 year under 20thyear head coach Steve Stratos, and a year that the Lions bid adieu to two-time first team All-WCC honoree Emily Day, a young LMU squad will look to return to its winning ways and the top of the competitive WCC.

2008 Review The Lions began the 2008 season at 9-3, highlighted by a five-match winning streak from September 12 to September 19. Over that span, LMU captured the 2008 Four Points Sheraton LAX/LMU Volleyball Classic Championship by finishing undefeated against Pittsburgh, San Jose State and UC Irvine. Unfortunately for the Lions, they would go on to drop 10 of their last 11 matches en route to finishing the season with a 13-17 overall record, and a 3-11 mark in the West Coast Conference. Those records placed the team sixth overall in the competitive WCC.

Becky Stehling joined Day in the postseason accolades department, receiving honorable mention AllWCC honors and a spot on the WCC Fall All-Academic squad. During the season, Stehling garnered

Ariana Covington was the only other Lion lauded after the season, earning a spot on the WCC AllFreshman team. That selection marked the second consecutive year, and third in the last four, that the Lions had at least one player named to the All-Freshman team. In addition, Erin Downey, Diana Hiromoto and Renee Horton were each named to the Four Points Sheraton All-Tournament team, while Megan Nash garnered All-Tournament recognition at the MCM Elegante Lobo Classic.

Head Coach Steve Stratos Steve Stratos completed his 19th season at the helm of the program with his first losing campaign during his tenure. In his time at LMU, Stratos has led the Lions to nine 20-win seasons and 11 postseason appearances. He has posted a career record of 372-195, the most victories in LMU volleyball history and second-most among current WCC coaches. His .656 winning percentage places him in the top-50 (47th) among active Division I coaches. His 372 victories place him 48th among the same group of coaches. In conference play, he owns a record of 173-93, good for a .650 winning percentage. With 173 career conference victories, Stratos again ranks second among active coaches in the WCC.

Class of 2008 With the departure of seniors Emily Day, Lauren Kirk, Erin Downey and Lindsay Banas, LMU will have some big shoes to fill this season. Most notably, the Lions will be without the stellar play of Day, who collected a WCC-best 18 double-doubles last year. In addition, she placed second in the conference, and 18th in the nation, in kills with 484 at a rate of 4.32, and second in the WCC with 557 points at a rate of 4.97 per set. Her 28 service aces at a .25 rate ranked 10th, while her 326 digs at a rate of 2.91 digs per set ranked eighth in the WCC. In conference matches

alone, Day was third in kills (219 total/4.06 per set) and points (254.0 total/4.70 per set). She was also the team-leader in attacks (1,303), kills (484), service aces (28) and digs (326), and was second in block solos (23) and total blocks (67). Kirk was once again a mainstay in the Lion lineup as a senior, playing in all 30 of LMU’s matches, and 99 of the 112 sets on the year. She managed 32 assists, 12 service aces and 189 digs at a rate of 1.91 per set. Her dig total placed her second on the team behind Day. Downey appeared in 90 sets for LMU last year, recording 133 kills at rate of 1.48 per set while hitting .276. Active on the block, she posted 10 block solos, 49 block assists and 59 total blocks at a .66 blocks-per-set pace. Downey’s .276 hitting percentage, 10 block solos, 49 block assists and 59 total blocks all placed her third on the team. Entering the 2009 campaign, the LMU Record Books have seen a few changes. Day’s 484 kills at a rate of 4.32 per set last year each place her 10th in the All-Time Single-Season book, while her team-leading 1,303 attacks in 2008 place her eighth. One of just seven members in the 1,000 career dig/1,000 career kills club, she finished her LMU career ranked third all-time in digs (1,181), fourth in total attacks (4,171) and kills (1,521), sixth in kill average (3.61) and sets played (421), eighth in aces (116), and 10th in solo blocks (70) and dig average (2.81). Becky Stehling, who returns for her junior season in 2009, already pervades the books. Her .369 hitting percentage last year was the fourth-best mark in program history, while she also places third in career attack percentage (.353) entering this year.

2009 LMU volleyball

Despite the uncharacteristic record for LMU last year, the Lions did manage to earn a number of individual accolades throughout the season. Emily Day highlighted the group by earning WCC Player of the Week honors on September 29. She went on to be voted All-Tournament at the MCM Elegante Lobo Classic and the Four Points Sheraton Classic, earning Tournament MVP honors at the conclusion of the latter. The postseason continued to bring honors to Day’s doorstep, where she earned a spot on the WCC Fall All-Academic team and the All-Conference first team. CoSIDA also recognized the math major on the academic side, voting her to the Academic All-District team. Day’s stellar senior campaign was capped by a selection to Collegiate Volleyball Update’s Stellar Spikers honorable mention squad.

The 2009 LMU Lions This year, led by a group of young and talented returnees and a host of highly-touted newcomers, the Lions will try to improve upon a sixth-place finish in the West Coast Conference and return to the top of the WCC. LMU, which does not feature a senior on its roster, will rely heavily on its All-WCC selections

from a year ago. Sophomore Ariana Covington, who garnered All-Freshman recognition in her inaugural season last year, will likely see plenty of chances from the outside hitter position on the attack. Possibly playing an even bigger role will be junior Becky Stehling, who will be expected to continue to hit at a high percentage while also excelling on the block. Stehling was the team-leader in block solos (26), block assists (52) and total blocks (78) last year, and with another year of experience under her belt, look for her to be a force to be reckoned with in the middle of the court both offensively and defensively.

Newcomers Coach Stratos and his staff have put together a roster that includes seven new options in freshmen Felicia Arriola, Olivia Bailey, Kenna Crouse, Arin Dear-Walker, Nikki Lane, Katie Lawler and Samantha Spees. “With the addition of seven new accomplished athletes to our program, and the very successful spring that we’ve had with a young squad already, our future looks very bright indeed.” Arriola, a four-year varsity starter for Dana Hills High School, was named All-South Coast League at the conclusion of each of her four seasons on the court. A three-time Most Valuable Player for her squad, she was named First Team All-America after helping the Laguna Beach Volleyball Club to a 16-and-under Open Junior Olympic Championship. Her Laguna Beach 18 1’s club team is considered by many to be the No. 1 club team in the state of California. According to Stratos, “Felicia is a tremendous athlete and a very powerful hitter. She is a great all-around volleyball player, and owns incredible volleyball skills. I feel she can potentially help us on both the left and right side, and she could very well become the primary passer for us right away.” Bailey, a 2007 AAU All-American and member of the Skyline Club Team in Texas, was a four-year varsity letter winner for The Hockaday School. Named All-Southwest Preparatory Conference and All-North Zone in each of her last three seasons, the 6’0” setter was named to PrepVolleyball.com’s “Senior Aces” list. A two-time conference Most Valuable Player, she is also an accomplished beach volleyball player after winning Regional Championships in 2005 and 2006. “Olivia plays for one of the best club volleyball teams in Texas,” Stratos said. “She is a great all-around player who began her career as an outside hitter before developing into one of the top setters in Texas. Olivia is a very intelligent volleyball player and understands the dynamics of the game.” Crouse was a three-year varsity letter winner at Santa Margarita Catholic High School. The 6’1” middle blocker most recently led her team to the CIF Division I-AA title and a spot in the semifinals of the State Championship. A stellar student off the court after being named to the President’s Honor Roll in all four years at Santa Margarita, she helped her team to the Junior Olympic 16 Open Championship and a bronze medal as a part of the Junior Olympic 18 Club team. “Kenna is a talented middle blocker with a very live arm,” Stratos said. “She is a very accomplished player already, having competed at extremely high levels as part of her high school and club teams. Kenna plays with tremendous enthusiasm and is a flat-out winner, showcased by her success in the Junior Olympics and her recent run to the State Semifinals.” Dear-Walker, a three-year varsity starter at John W. North High School, garnered All-League recognition in each of her three varsity seasons. A four-time Scholar-Athlete, she led her team in kill percentage and kills-per-set en route to being named All-County honorable mention as a junior and senior. “Arin is a very athletic individual that has the potential to develop into a successful Division I volleyball player,” Stratos said.

2009 LMU volleyball

Lane, a three-time All-Prep League selection at Chadwick High School, garnered All-CIF honors as a junior in 2007. An All-Tournament selection at the Brentwood Classic and the North High Tournament, she served as her team’s captain as a junior and senior. Also named MVP of the Bretheren Christian Tournament as a junior in high school, she is a member of the South Bay Volleyball Club, playing under Assistant Coach Larry Smoot on the club side. In club competition, she participated in the Junior Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah, Atlanta, Ga., and in the Open Division in Minneapolis, Minn. in 2007. “Nikki is a very accomplished setter. She has played on one of the premier clubs in the south bay, South Bay Volleyball Club, for one of our assistants, Larry Smoot. She has had a lot of success at both the high school and club levels, and will be a great addition to the other talented setters we have already in place, and coming into the program this year.” Lawler, who prepped at Newport Harbor High School, considered one of the premier high school volleyball teams in the country, was a two-year starter and helped lead her squad to a Sunset League Championship in 2007. That team advanced to the CIF Division I Quarterfinals. A captain of her 18’s 2 club team in 2007, she also guided her squad to a third-place

finish at the Ann Kang Hawai’i Tournament in 2008. “Katie comes to our program from one of the premier high schools in the country, Newport Harbor High School. Prepping there, she has emerged as a very talented volleyball player with an abundance of skill. She has the ability to play as an outside hitter, but could potentially vie for the libero position as well in 2009.” Spees, named first team All-State for the state of Virginia as a senior, was a Prep Volleyball All-American and was named to the Prep Volleyball Senior Aces list. The Concorde District Player of the Year in 2008, she was also named Northern Region Player of the Year that same season. A four-time All-Northern Region Tournament selection and two-time team captain, she garnered second team All-District as a junior en route to being named a Virginia Gatorade Player of the Year nominee as a senior. “Samantha is one of the most accomplished seniors coming out of Virginia this year. She has tremendous accolades, including being named All-State and Most Valuable Player in her region. She comes from a tremendous volleyball family, as her father was a Southern California standout in beach volleyball, and also played indoors and was very accomplished there as well.”

The 2009 Lineup The seven newcomers join a program that returns three starters, having lost senior starters Emily Day, Erin Downey and Lauren Kirk, and sophomore Renee Horton. Although the loss of all four players could be seen as a massive blow to a squad consisting of no seniors, the Lions have always had depth at several positions, and this year is no exception. A core of young returnees anxious for their shot to lead the team to greatness, teamed with a handful of eager freshmen looking to showcase their talents at the next level, should result in battles for starting positions and an exciting and successful season in 2009.

Outside Hitter Considered one of the team’s “go-to” players this year, Ariana Covington returns to the outside hitter position this season. Covington, a WCC All-Freshman team honoree a year ago, finished her first season with 310 kills, placing second on the team in that category, and first in terms of freshmen. Her 876 total attacks also placed her second on the squad. She averaged 2.77 kills-per-set, good for first in the WCC among her freshmen counterparts, while hitting .201 over the course of the year. Covington also proved active at the net with 23 total blocks, including five solos and 18 assists en route to finishing the year with 333 total points. In WCC play, the Carlsbad, Calif. native was the top freshman in terms of kills, collecting 170 at a rate of 3.15 per set. Staying hot throughout the year, she recorded 10 or more kills on 18 occasions, including 14 of her last 16 matches. Covington will not be alone in the hunt for swings from the outside, as a handful of freshmen in Alaina Bergsma, Felicia Arriola, Katie Lawler, Sammy Spees and Arin Dear-Walker, along with sophomore Jasmine Rankins, provide the coaching staff with strong options at the position.

Opposite In one of many battles to be won throughout the season at various positions in the starting lineup, sophomore Emily Cheek, along with freshmen Alaina Bergsma and Felicia Arriola, will compete for time playing opposite the setter. Last year, Cheek played in 15 of LMU’s 30 matches, starting four, despite missing time due to injury. She collected 37 kills on the year and managed 10 blocks, including three solos and seven assists. Bergsma, who redshirted her true-freshman campaign a year ago, had an outstanding spring season for the Lions, and should find time somewhere on the court on a regular basis. Sophomore Jasmine Rankins and junior Megan Nash could also vie for time at the opposite position.

Setter Another battle to be won on the court throughout the season is at the starting setter position. Alesha Young, who served as the team’s starting setter during the spring, will battle for playing time with freshman Olivia Bailey. Young appeared in 18 matches, starting five, as a freshman last year. She finished second on the team in assists, passing-out 167 at a rate of 3.63 per set, while also collecting five aces. Proving her worth from the service area late in the season, three of her five total service aces came against WCC foes down the stretch. Bailey, a 2007 AAU All-American and two-time conference MVP, is joined by Nikki Lane as the two freshmen setters on this year’s roster.

Defensive Specialist

2009 LMU volleyball

The Lions once again find themselves with an impressive amount of depth, albeit young, at the defensive specialist position this year. Four players, two sophomores and two freshmen, will compete for time on the court. Lauren DeGrandmont showcased her talent during the spring, serving as the starting libero throughout. DeGrandmont appeared in 29 matches and 93 sets for the Lions as a freshman last year, serving-up four aces and dishing-out 16 assists. She managed 146 digs at a rate of 1.57 per set, including a personal-best 11 digs on two occasions. Her dig total placed her fourth on the team, and first in terms of freshmen, last year. Fellow sophomore, Diana Hiromoto, will also fight for time on the court. Hiromoto appeared in 51 sets and 16 matches as a freshman, and was named to the Four Points Sheraton LAX/LMU Volleyball Classic All-Tournament team after serving-up seven aces and posting 33 digs. One of the best servers on the team, she notched 20 service aces at a rate of .39 per set, tops on the squad. Hiromoto, who collected 118 digs at a rate of 2.31

per set, also notched 15 assists last season. Freshmen Katie Lawler and Sammy Spees round out the competition at the defensive specialist position, as both players have a good chance to find time throughout the year.

Middle Blocker Just like at the outside hitter position, LMU also has a “go-to” player at middle blocker in junior Becky Stehling. Stehling, who enters the season with a .353 career hitting percentage, placing third in LMU’s Career Record Book, was an All-West Coast Conference honorable mention selection last year. She started all 30 matches and 112 sets for the Lions as a sophomore, notching 277 kills and averaging 2.47 per set, both good for third on the team. Stehling connected at a .369 clip on 596 attacks to pace the Lions in hitting percentage, a mark that ranked 27th in the nation, fourth in the WCC, and fourth in LMU’s Single Season Record Book at the conclusion of the year. The Austin, Texas native was the team-leader in block solos with 26, block assists with 52, and total blocks with 78 en route to totaling 351 points at a rate of 3.13 per set over the course of the season, ranking second on the team. In WCC play alone, she managed 135 kills, hitting .386 over the span, to place third in the conference in hitting percentage. Megan Nash, also in her junior season, is another stellar option at the middle blocker position. Nash appeared in 27 matches, starting 25 for the Lions last year. She was named MCM Elegante Lobo Classic All-Tournament after playing in all 10 sets and posting 18 kills at a .362 clip, making just one attack error in 47 attempts over the course of the tournament. In all, she collected 125 kills and hit .277, good for second on the team and 15th in the West Coast Conference last season. She also worked hard on the block, collecting six block solos and 50 block assists, two behind the team-leader in Stehling. Joining the juniors, who happen to be the only upperclassmen on the team this season, at middle blocker are freshmen Kenna Crouse and Arin Dear-Walker. Crouse, a highly-touted player out of high school, could find time immediately for the Lions this year.

2009 Schedule Lion fans always see an impressive schedule for LMU volleyball, and this year is no exception. The Lions will play 12 matches against teams that qualified for last year’s NCAA tournament. Establishing itself as one of the strongest volleyball conferences in the country, of the seven teams on the docket that made the trip to the postseason last year, five came from the West Coast Conference, the most since it sent a conference-record six teams in 2003. Last year’s total also marked the highest percentage of teams from any conference in the country to make it to the tournament. In addition, the five teams last year marked the 12th year in a row that the WCC had sent at least three teams to the playoffs. The Lions will kick-off the season with its annual alumnae match on August 22 in Gersten Pavilion. From there, LMU will start the regular season, traveling to Fort Worth, Texas to compete against Grambling State, Arkansas and host Texas Christian University at the TCU Tournament from August 28-29. Tournament play continues for the Lions from September 4-5 as they once again hit the road, this time heading to Las Vegas, Nev. for the UNLV Tournament, featuring matches against Idaho, UNLV and UCLA, which advanced to the Sweet Sixteen just a year ago. After six tournament matches on the road, LMU will host its first and only regular-season tournament from September 11-12, the Crowne Plaza LAX Tournament. Houston, Boise State and UC Irvine will all travel to Los Angeles to battle with the Lions in Gersten Pavilion. At the conclusion of the home tournament, LMU will welcome Cal State Northridge on September 15 before once again hitting the road for its final regular-season tournament. The University of Pacific will hold its tournament from September 18-19, where LMU will match-up against Nevada, Cal State Bakersfield and the Tigers. Following a non-conference showdown between the Lions and UC Santa Barbara on September 22, LMU will open WCC play at home against San Diego (October 1) and Saint Mary’s (October 3), two teams that made the NCAA Tournament last year. Portland and Gonzaga host the Lions on October 8 and 10, respectively, before LMU once again squares-off against a NCAA participant in cross-town rival Pepperdine on the road on October 17. The battles do not get any easier for the crimson and navy from there, as they host another pair of NCAA qualifiers in Santa Clara (October 22) and San Francisco (October 24). Santa Clara was the only WCC team to advance to the second round of the playoffs a year ago.

2009 LMU volleyball

The Lions close the season with another challenge, traveling to Long Beach, Calif. to face the 49ers on November 28. Long Beach State not only made the 2008 NCAA Tournament, but advanced to the second round before falling to Stanford, the runner-up for the National Championship. “As is the case every year, we have a tremendous non-conference schedule. In addition, our conference continues to show that it is one of the toughest in America, and we anticipate every match being a well-fought battle,” Stratos said.

In 1996, Stratos became the first coach in West Coast Conference history to be tabbed Coach of the Year three straight seasons after leading the Lions to their third consecutive conference title. In addition, he earned AVCA District VIII Coach of the Year honors after directing the 1996 squad to a 26-3 mark, advancing to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen and a No. 9 final national ranking, the highest finish in program history. His teams have averaged just under 20 wins a season and have made nine NCAA postseason appearances, including four consecutive in the NCAA Championships from 1994-97. Stratos’ last postseason appearance, coming in 2005, capped a streak of three straight NCAA appearances from 2003-05. Stratos has posted a career record of 372-195, for a .656 winning percentage, the highest in LMU volleyball history. That mark also ranks him 47th in the nation among active NCAA Division I head coaches. His 372 victories place him 48th among the same group of coaches. In West Coast Conference action, he owns a record of 173-93, for a .650 winning percentage. With 173 career conference victories, Stratos ranks second all-time among WCC coaches.

In his 19 seasons as head coach of the Loyola Marymount women’s volleyball program, Steve Stratos has maintained a high level of excellence throughout his program, both in the classroom and on the court. Having coached six All-Americans, as well as numerous Academic AllConference selections, Stratos continues to maintain one of the top volleyball programs in the nation.

After their tremendous success in 1996, the Lions posted a 22-7 record the following year (1997) and again advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Under Stratos’ guidance, the Lions won in the first round of the tournament with a 3-0 victory over Hawai’i. Stratos and the Lions put up three straight NCAA appearances again from 2003 to 2005, advancing to the second round in 2003 before falling to eventual National Champion, USC. The 2004 campaign saw Stratos reach the 300 career win milestone in front of the home crowd at Gersten Pavilion. Stratos has turned the Lions’ home court into one of the toughest places for opponents to visit, with a lively student section and exciting home schedules year after year. The Lions have enjoyed a .718 winning percentage in Gersten Pavilion under Coach Stratos. Success of the program has carried over into individual honors as well. Among the program’s top athletes and graduates, Stratos coached Loyola Marymount’s two AVCA All-America first-team honorees, Sarah Noriega (1994-97) and Sarah McFarland (1997-00). He has guided 15 All-West Region players, 58 All-Conference players, three WCC Freshmen of the Year and one Freshman All-American. In addition, Noriega went on to play for the U.S. National Team from 1998-03, serving as an Olympic Team member in 1998 and 2000. Following in Noriega’s footsteps, Heather Hughes emerged as the second Lion to join the U.S. National Team, finding time on the squad since her graduation in 2007. Stratos also coached Kelli Nerison (2000-2003) to one of the greatest breakthroughs in program history. After seeing brief playing time in a total of just 12 matches during the first two seasons of her career, Nerison went on to honorable mention All-American performances as a junior and senior. As a senior, Collegiate Volleyball Update named her one of the nation’s top-five blockers. Throughout the same period, his teams have succeeded in the classroom, producing 27 All-WCC Academic selections and six LMU Female ScholarAthletes of the Year. Among these, Tracy Holman (1994-97) garnered the award twice as an LMU student-athlete, and was named WCC ScholarAthlete of the Year at the completion of the 1997-98 academic year. Stratos began his coaching career as an assistant coach for the boys’ junior

Winning has become a tradition for the LMU volleyball program. In a fiveyear span (1994-98), Stratos’ teams combined for a string of 61-straight weeks being nationally ranked in the AVCA/USA Today Top-25 Poll. Despite high expectations upon entering the 1998 season, the No. 25-ranked Lions were left out of the NCAA postseason tournament for the first time since 1993. They ended the 1998 regular season ranked No. 25 in the nation. Using 1998 as a learning experience, Stratos and the Lions jumped back into the NCAA tournament in 1999, advancing to the second round, and were ranked as high as No. 22 in the AVCA rankings (September 28). In 2000, Stratos and the Lions continued their pursuit of excellence by starting the season on a seven-match winning streak, which propelled them to a season-best No. 21 AVCA ranking (Sept. 4). The 2002 season saw the Lions start with an 11-3 mark, which handed the program its 13th straight winning season under Stratos.

During Stratos’ first season (1990), the Lions posted a 21-16 record and made a postseason appearance in the NIVC (National Invitational Volleyball Championship). In 1992, he led the team to its second NIVC appearance and a 22-13 record. The following year (1993), the Lions accumulated a 23-7 overall record and finished second in the WCC (11-3).

Larry Smoot is in his 20th year as the top assistant volleyball coach at Loyola Marymount University. Smoot is involved in all facets of the volleyball program, including input on daily practices and matches, as well as handling a portion of the recruiting responsibilities. He also serves as the camp coordinator for the LMU Girls’ Volleyball Summer Camp. In his 19 seasons with the Lions, Smoot has helped LMU to 11 postseason appearances and three West Coast Conference Championships.

Heather Collins is in her 13th season as an assistant coach at Loyola Marymount. Collins handles pre-match scouting and assists in recruiting, daily practices, and matches. On the court, Collins primarily works with outside hitters, passing and defense. In her first season with the LMU program, the Lions went 22-7 overall and 11-3 in WCC play en route to a NCAA second round appearance. In her 12 seasons, Collins has helped guide LMU to six NCAA postseasons, reaching the second round in three of those six appearances.

Larry Smoot began his coaching career at Torrance High School with the boys’ volleyball program in 1980. He added the girls’ team to his coaching duties in 1984 and led them to national rankings in 1986 (No. 12) and 1987 (No. 10). His girls’ program captured the Bay League Championship from 1985 through 1987.

A former All-American at UC Santa Barbara, Collins came to LMU following a two-year stint as an assistant coach at UCSB in 1995 and 1996. In her two seasons, the Gauchos posted a 26-9 record in 1995 and a 23-9 record in 1996, twice advancing to the NCAA second round.

Smoot is currently the Head Coach and Owner of the South Bay Girls’ Volleyball Club and has served as Head Coach for the Torrance Volleyball Club (boys). His South Bay 18-and-under club team has advanced to the Kaepa Festival Tournament Final Four in four of the last 10 years and won the championship in 1993. During the summer of 2006, Smoot coached the South Bay 18-1s to a bronze medal at the American Division Junior National Championships in Atlanta, Ga.

A four-year letter winner for the Gauchos, Collins was a two-time All-Big West first-team member, earning the honor following her junior and senior seasons. She claimed third-team All-America honors from Volleyball Magazine as a junior, and honorable mention accolades following her senior campaign. She still ranks among school leaders in career digs (1,556 - fifth) and kills (1,329 - ninth), and holds the school mark for service aces (157). As a player, she led the Gauchos to a four-year record of 101-29, including four appearances in the NCAA Tournament. In 1993, UCSB posted a 28-4 mark and finished with a No. 4 national ranking.

He previously led the Torrance club to a second place finish at the USVB Junior Olympics in 1983. Smoot was honored in 1996 with the Distinguished Service Award for Junior Volleyball by the Kaepa Volleyball Festival. A 1978 graduate of Torrance High School, Smoot was an All-Conference volleyball player at El Camino Junior College before playing one season at Long Beach State in 1982. Smoot still competes in men’s and co-ed division tournaments. He is a former USVBA All-American in the co-ed division and has won the USVBA co-ed division open championships as a player-coach in 1987 and 1990.

living are simple: an active social scene, meal plans that allow students to dine at various campus locations, and easy access to classes and campus facilities. But university housing offers much more than simple convenience, it also give students an edge. As a resident, students are immediately plugged into programs that help them achieve better grades, meet new friends, develop professional contacts and graduate in a timely manner. At LMU, we know that everything you do - including where you live shapes the person you’re becoming. So LMU offers themed living communities where you pursue your education in a social context that’s relevant to you. Here, you live and learn in an environment that promotes reflection and character development, where your values are celebrated, challenged, shared.

IT’S WHERE YOU’RE BOUND “We’re trying to get rid of you,” said professor Kelly Younger, who directs the Honors Program, likes to tell LMU students. He’s referring to the study abroad opportunities, scholarships, internships, academic conferences and competitions that take students off campus and into the world. When it comes time to graduate, students will have the knowledge, the confidence, and the strength of spirit to achieve anything the students can imagine. To help you toward your ideal career, LMU offers a network of loyal alumni. “Even the summer after graduation, I am already aware of the benefits that LMU alumni networking offers,” says a new alum. “When we leave the undergraduate family, it’s as if we graduate into an even larger family that offers constant support.”

LMU athletics facilities:

Building Champions. T

he athletics facilities at Loyola Marymount University have seen a little of everything in the almost 70 years while in its current Westchester location. From the 1984 Olympic games to LMU basketball to the World Cup and everything in between, the LMU athletics facilities have become home to the best and it continues to get better. Thanks to continued commitment by the University, the Athletics Complex over the next two years will show lots of growth. It started this summer when the University allocated office and meeting space to Lion Athletics within the Dorothy and Thomas E. Leavey Center on the Westchester campus. The Leavey Center will become home to 15 of the Lions’ 21 varsity program in the newly remodeled and modern office complex. With six suites on two floors in the heart of the LMU campus, Athletics at Leavey joins an impressive list of facilities. At the center is Albert Gersten Pavilion, home to LMU basketball, volleyball and the administrative offices. The facility also includes the Academics Center, the LMU Training Room, LMU Weight Room, locker room facilities, and LMU Media Room - all of which will undergo renovations over the next two years. In addition to Gersten Pavilion, the complex includes George Page Stadium, Sullivan Field, the Burns Recreation and Aquatics Center, the Jane Bove Boathouse, Smith Field, the LMU Tennis Complex and the Thomas Higgins Short Game Center. Each facility has undergone modifications and improvements since 2000, including the newest competition venue on campus, Smith Field, which opened in 2006. Other competitive venues have been added in the last 10 years, including the George P. Kading and Morris A. Pivaroff Tournament Court at the LMU Tennis Center in 2004, the Boathouse in 2002 and the Burns Aquatics Center in 2001. In addition to the playing “fields,” other facilities have been added to enhance the Athletics’ Complex. The Higgins Short Game Center was completed in 2006 for the men’s golf team.

Lion Game Day:

Feel the Roar. ORIGIN OF THE LION

LionPride

Although its origin is somewhat clouded, the Lion mascot has been synonymous with Loyola Marymount University for more than 70 years. According to the Oct. 5, 1923 edition of the school newspaper, the Los Angeles Loyolan, the Lion mascot was suggested by an enthusiastic fan after 1919 when St. Vincent’s College became Loyola College. Noting the Loyola football player’s fierce competitiveness, that unknown fan described the Loyola players as Lions. The name did not generate too much popularity and the Loyola athletic nickname remained “Loyolan’s” until 1923. At that time, the article explains, the college wished to inspire new pride in its athletes and fans. Noting the success of nicknames for other colleges, the college opted to give the Lion’s nickname a rebirth. Calling the old Lion mascot “mistreated and forgotten,” the article explains that the Lion would officially find its way into all college songs and cheers. The Lion has remained firmly entrenched in Loyola lore to this very day. An alternative origin story traces the nickname to the abundance of actual mountain lions which roamed Westchester when Loyola College moved here in 1927. The area remained widely unpopulated and teemed with wildlife when the school moved atop the bluffs. School officials reportedly adopted the nickname because mountain lions inhabited the area when ground was broken.

This organization is the official student booster club of LMU athletics. Seen throughout the athletic season, LionPride has been a major reason for record student attendance the last several years. With more than 1,000 members this year, LionPride will be a factor at LMU events. Open to all students enrolled at LMU, LionPride offers free admission to all home regular season athletic events, opportunity to participate in in-game promotions, drawings for valuable prizes and much, much more, including the LionPride T-Shirt. In addition, LionPride makes its way to road games thanks to multiple road trips through out the year.

PEP BAND In what many consider its first appearance at any LMU athletic event, the LMU Pep Band broke onto the scene late in the 2001-02 season. Bringing energy and atmosphere to athletics events, the Pep Band is the latest addition to making LMU the best place to play and watch. Making up the 35-member band, with more members on the way, are LMU students from all backgrounds. The band is in its sixth year.

CHEER TEAM The Loyola Marymount University Cheer Squad became the an official varsity sport sponsored by LMU in the Summer of 2005 and are a co-ed competition team that performs annually at the USA Nationals. Serving as a “Spirit Squad” for men’s basketball when the university was known as Loyola, the current cheer team has grown to a service-oriented organization that not only appears and supports all 21 LMU athletic teams and events, but performs community service. The cheer squad has continued to impress with its overall in game routines with advanced tumbling, stunt and dance performances. In addition to providing support to the teams during the games, the squad will once again perform halftime and timeout routines. This year’s squad includes Amanda Barthel, Elise Blecker, Kristen Cirillo, Ashley Cordes, Heather Dahlgren, Jovan Dansberry, Natasha Grabowski, Lisa Green, Amber Hansen, Taylor Harvey, Penelope Horan, Brantley Jittu, Nicole Lanz, Thomas Miller, Katie Mollica, Nicole Stadell, Greeg Von Muellner, Alexis Whitesides and Kirsten Yetzke.

inside LMU history of lmu athletics:

Decades of Champions.

1890 – 1910 Then known as St. Vincent’s College, the school is known on record as having a football team and a basketball team. The year 1889 is shown to be the first game of football while the 1906 season was the first for basketball. The records show the Lions going 5-0 as a basketball team in 1906. 1910-1930 Loyola College was founded in 1911 as an outgrowth of St. Vincent’s College, the first college in Los Angeles. In 1924 the College opened a new gym on the old St. Vincent’s campus. A year later the Lions post first season with double-digit wins in basketball, going 10-7 in the 1924-25 season. Coached by Harold “Bill” Hess, the Lions had wins over Woodbury Business College, Cal Tech and the Hollywood All-Stars. In the fall of 1925, George Casey became the third head coach of St. Vincent’s, finishing his only year as coach 6-5. In 1926 the school played in its first overtime game, a 2016 loss to Whittier. They win their first overtime game a year later, a 16-14 victory against California Christian College. Then in 1928, the then Loyola College moved to its current location on the Westchester bluff and two years later became Loyola University. Loyola Law School, located in downtown Los Angeles, was founded in 1920. 1930s In the 1930s Loyola established its new campus on the bluff in Westchester while basketball greats Pete Newell and Phil Woolpert began their legendary careers as Lions. While Loyola discontinues the men’s basketball program for four seasons during the great depression, it is hockey of all sports that emerges as Loyola’s top program, thanks in large part to the use of its football players as hockey players. The first college hockey league started in 1927 and while increasing in popularity, it became part of the official athletic program of multiple southern California schools, thus the formation of the Southern California Intercollegiate Hockey League. USC dominated the league, winning 36 straight before Loyola, led by Head Coach Tom Lieb, snapped that streak on March 6 of 1932, beginning one of fiercer rivalries of its day. Then in the 1934-35 season, the Lions knocked off USC in the prestigious Yosemite Tournament for the first time and then went on to defeat the Trojans for Loyola’s first conference crown. As the league grew, the main attraction continued to be the games between Loyola and USC, “as the two teams were in a class by themselves.” The 1935-36 season was the year college hockey really caught on. The final game between Loyola and USC for the Pacific

Coast title was a double overtime thriller in front of 4,000 fans. The Lions won their second PCHC championship in a row. The Lions would then win their third league title in a row in a three-game playoff in 1937, winning two games to one. With World War II on the horizon, Loyola would drop hockey in 1941 and college hockey in Southern California would slowly break apart. 1940s In 1941, the Lions face in-town rival Pepperdine for the first time in the two program’s histories. They faced each other twice in the 1940-41 season, with Loyola winning both, 30-18 and 43-23. In that season, both Pete Newell and Phil Woolpert suited up for the Lions. The two Loyola greats went on to become legends in the coaching profession, leading college teams to NCAA National Championships. In 1948-1949, Loyola went on to its first 20-win season, posting a 22-14 record under coach Scotty McDonald. The Lions would see their longest winning streak at that time of 10 games. The season included the first game in Alumni Gymnasium, the Lions’ home until the 1981-82 season when the Lions moved to Gersten Pavilion.

seven seasons as a tight end for the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams, helping the team to the 1951 World Title. The Lions men’s basketball team advanced to their first collegiate sponsored postseason tournament, competing for the NAIA National Championship. The Lions posted a 16-9 record and were selected to participate in the NAIA Tournament where they faced San Francisco State in the first round. With a 57-56 win, the Lions moved on to face Southwestern (KS) in the second round. Southwestern won, 83-79. Then in 1956, the Lions joined the California Basketball Association, which two years later formed the West Coast Athletic Conference. Loyola finished the CBA with a 9-5 record, second in the conference.

1950s The 1950s started with one of best football seasons in school history as the team, led by future NFL star Don Klosterman, finished the season 8-1, losing to Santa Clara 28-26 and missing out on a trip to the Orange Bowl. Klosterman would go on to earn All-America honors in 1952. A member of that team, Bob Boyd, former Loyola football and track great, captured the 1950 NCAA men’s track championship in the 100-yard dash. He later played LMU Women’s Volleyball

inside LMU points, averaging 18.8 points in his career at LMU. The 1960s ended with the final curtain call of the football team as they went on to win the 1969 National Club Football National championship with an 8-1 record.

1960s In 1960, Loyola men’s basketball tied for first with a 9-3 record in the West Coast Athletic Conference. The title was shared with Santa Clara, who defeated the Lions in a playoff game to end the season. The Lions closed the regular season with eight straight wins. Then in 1961, LMU basketball had a record breaking season for the Lions, earning their second 20-win season, finishing 20-7 overall and earning their first-ever out-right WCAC title with a 10-2 mark. Loyola started the season 3-4, but responded with 17 wins in their final 20 games, including a nine-game winning streak. It was the Lions’ first trip to the NCAA tournament, a date in the Far West Regional at Portland. The Lions fell to Utah, 91-75 in the first round, and fell to the consolation bracket. Utah, who Loyola defeated in exhibition play 85-64 earlier in the season, went on to the Final Four. Loyola defeated USC, 69-67, to earn their 20th win of the season. It was head coach William Donovan’s final year at the helm of the Lions. In his eight years as coach, he earned 107 wins, the most among all LMU coaches. In 1964 Hugh Miller Foley rowed in the 1964 Olympics. He was a member of the Rowing Eight with Coxswain Team that won the Gold Medal. In 1968, NBA coach Rick Adelman finished his three-year playing career with 1,425

1970s The University merged with Marymount College to become Loyola Marymount University and in 1971 women’s athletics begins to appear as the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women is formed to plan, govern and promote the growing number of college tournaments for women athletes. That same year the fiveplayer, full-court game and the 30-second shot clock is introduced to women’s basketball. And then one year later one of the most important pieces of legislation for women’s athletics is put into place as Congress passes Title IX, setting into motion the Lions success to come in women’s sports. Title IX officially went into effect on June 21, 1975. In 1973, Marv Wood’s baseball squad brought LMU its first West Coast Conference Championship after a 13-game win streak allowed the Lions to clinch the title on the final weekend of the season over second place Santa Clara. USC knocked off the Lions and Cal State Los Angeles in the NCAA District 8 regionals and eventually won its fourth consecutive national championship. In 1976 the first full scholarship for a female is given and LMU adds its first varsity program in Women’s Tennis as alum Jamie Sanchez begins the program with a 13-6 record. They went on to win a conference championship (AIAW), the first in women’s programs at LMU. They went 10-0 and won the title in 1977 and 1978 as they combined for a record of 28-2 in conference play. 1980s The decade started with men’s basketball earning a bid to the NCAA West Regional, losing to Arizona State in the first round, 99-71.

Women (AIAW) is dissolved. In Women’s Tennis, the Lions finished 12th in the nation in their division as Debbie Delgado is first recipient of All-American status. Paul Sunderland, who played both volleyball and basketball at LMU, went on to earn All-America honors in volleyball at LMU and then played 10 years of the U.S. National Volleyball Team, earning U.S. Player of the Year honors three times (1978, 79, 82). He played in the 1978 and 1982 World Championships and then as a member of the 1984 U.S. Olympic Team, he helped the team to the Gold Medal. Paul Westhead is hired as head coach of the men’s basketball team, replacing Ed Goorjian, who coached from 1980-1985. In his first season, he leads the Lions back to the postseason for the first time since 1980. In 1985, US International and LMU begin a four-year series that would result in the highest scoring games in NCAA history. After defeating USIU 84-65 in January of 1985, the “track meets” would begin. In Westhead’s first season in 1985-86, the Lions would defeat USIU 151-107. The 1986 LMU baseball team had the best season in program history. It was also one of the best overall seasons of all time for LMU Athletics. Following a 1985 season in which the Lions did not have a winning record at 27-28, the program performed one of the best turnarounds in LMU athletics history. They finished the season with a program-best 50 wins and wrapped up the season at 50-15, a 23-game improvement from the previous year. LMU produced a 13-game winning streak from March 21 through April 11, and won 20 of 21 games in the middle of the season. With the winning streak came the nation’s top ranking by the ESPN/Collegiate Baseball National Poll. The Lions never looked back, finishing tied with Pepperdine for first place in the West Coast Athletic Conference at 19-5, setting up a one game playoff to determine the conference’s automatic bid to the NCAA Regional. Played at Jackie Robinson Stadium on the campus of UCLA, the Lions defeated the Waves 14-9 to earn the bid to the NCAA West Regional. LMU would reel off its next four games, fighting through four separate elimination games to earn a bid to the school’s first appearance in the College World Series. On May 30, the Lions opened up their first World Series trip with a 4-3 win over perennial power LSU, to earn a two-day rest and play in the winner’s bracket. The Lions played the University of Arizona on June 2 and lost a heartbreaker 7-5 to drop to the elimination bracket to face Oklahoma State. The Cowboys were too much for the Lions, as they went on to an 11-5 win. Tim Layana was a member of the 1990 World Series Champion Cincinnati Reds. The Lions would return to the postseason in 1987, 1988 and 1989.

Then in 1981, with the opportunity for women to compete at the collegiate level, LMU athletes waste no time in making their mark. Therese Kozlowski ran a time of 17:34.9 to win the 1981 AIAW Individual National Championship in cross country while women’s volleyball begins as a varsity program at LMU with the NCAA hosting as a championship in 1981. The banner year continued as the Women’s Rowing Varsity Four team won the 1980-81 National Championship and the brand new Gersten Pavilion opened as home to the Lions and went on to host events with the 1984 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles. The year prior to the Olympics, the NCAA takes over women’s sports as Concluding the 1985-86 season, men’s basketball the National Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for found themselves in the NIT for the first time in school

The Lions finished 20-11 on the season, following a 120-101 loss to Arkansas in the first round of the NCAA tournament in the Midwest Region held at the Hoosier Dome in Indianapolis. The 1980s would conclude with another national title as the women’s rowing varsity four took home their second national championship.

history. Traveling to Berkeley, Calif., to face the Bears in the first round, the Lions would begin a successful end to the 1980s decade that made a habit of winning in the postseason. The Lions defeated Cal 80-75 to advance in a postseason tournament. LMU would fall to Wyoming 99-90 to end Westhead’s first season at 19-11 and 10-4 in the WCAC (second). Also in 1986, the women’s volleyball team won the WCC and advance to the NCAAs, where they topped UCLA in first round action before falling to Stanford in the second round. The Lions finished the 1986 season 24-8 and 10-2 in WCC play in their final season under Coach Nancy Fortner. One year later, the Hank Gathers and Bo Kimble era of Lions’ basketball began with a 114-78 win over Tennessee Tech. The season would finish as the Lions’ best in winning percentage, finishing with a 28-4 mark and a perfect 14-0 in the WCAC. The 1987-88 season would include a 25-game winning streak, the best in school history. The fast-break offense began to take hold, as the Lions scored in triple figures in all but nine of their 32 games. The Lions would clinch their first WCAC regular season championship since the ‘60s and their first Tournament Championship with a 104-96 win over Santa Clara in the WCAC Championship game. LMU advances to the NCAA tournament, and earns its first win in the “Big Dance,” a 119-115 win over Wyoming, who two years earlier knocked the Lions out of the NIT. Playing in the West Sub-Regional in Salt Lake City, Utah, LMU would be a surprise opponent in the second round against power North Carolina. The Tar Heels would dismiss the Lions 123-97.

1990 The 1990s started the way the 80s ended, fast. In addition to their 28 games scoring in triple digits, men’s basketball earned its third straight WCC title and trip to the NCAA tournament. In finishing 26-6, the Lions advanced further than any team in school history by reaching the Elite Eight in the NCAA Championships. However, tragedy marked the Lions’ cinderella run. On March 4, 1990 in the second round of the WCC Tournament, the Lions took a 25-13 lead on Portland following All-American Hank Gathers’ dunk on an alley-oop from Terrell Lowery. Gathers would collapse to the floor and would not regain consciousness. Gathers would be pronounced dead later that evening at Marina del Rey’s Daniel Freeman Hospital. The WCC Tournament would be cancelled and the Lions would be named champion, earning the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. A long shot and seeded No. 11 in the West Region, the Lions went on to beat New Mexico State, defending national champion Michigan and Alabama before falling to the eventual national champions, UNLV, 131-101. The run in the 1990 tournament will long be remembered, however, with the image of Gathers’ teammate and longtime friend Bo Kimble shooting the first free throw left-handed - a switch from his normal right-handed shot. Kimble made every shot he took left-handed.

earning a NCAA tournament appearance. Head Coach Steve Stratos then led LMU to its second straight WCC title and NCAA tournament appearance in 1995 with a perfect 14-0 record, the first in school history. A year later, Stratos and the West Coast Conference Champion Lions celebrated the most successful season in program history. The Lions had advanced to the NCAA’s Sweet Sixteen and finished among the nation’s top-10 in the final AVCA rankings. Dating back to the 1994 season, the Lions had racked up 31 straight WCC victories. LMU went a perfect 14-0 in WCC play for the second straight season in 1996, earning Stratos his third consecutive WCC Coach of the Year selection. He was the first coach in the history of the conference to earn the nod three straight years. He was also named the AVCA District Coach of the Year. Kim Blankinship joined Stratos in earning WCC accolades, as the Lions’ senior was named the 1996 WCC Player of the Year. Tracy Holman and Sarah Noriega, along with Blankinship, were All-WCC first-team and AVCA All-District

Months after basketball’s historic run, baseball captured sole possession of the league title for the first time in 17 years, LMU breezed to its third consecutive postseason appearance. The Lions posted 45 wins, the second highest total in school history. LMU representatives were honored with WCC Player of the Year, Newcomer of the Year and Coach of the Year accolades by the league.

Two years later, the women’s volleyball accumulated a 23-7 overall record and finished second in the WCC (113). For the first time in program history, LMU entered the nation’s top-25, ranked No. 24 in the AVCA Coaches’ Poll and No. 22 by Volleyball Monthly. The glimpse of success in 1993 opened the door to the Lions dominating the WCC in women’s volleyball for the next three seasons. In 1994, they garnered the first of three consecutive WCC Championships with a 19-10 overall mark and a 12-2 conference record,

selections. The Lions finished the regular season 25-2 and earned a bye in the first round of the NCAAs. A second-round win over UC Santa Barbara sent the Lions to the Sweet Sixteen, where they faced a tough Washington State squad. Despite the efforts of NCAA Pacific Regional All-Tournament selections Blankinship (21 kills, 11 digs) and Noriega (30 kills, four blocks), the Lions fell 3-1. LMU finished the banner 1996 campaign with an overall record of 26-3, winning 16 of its final 17 matches and 26 of its last 28. The AVCA ranked the Lions ninth in the final 1996 poll, though LMU had climbed as high as sixth in the nation during the season. In 1997, Sarah Noriega became the first player to earn AVCA All-America first-team honors as well as Volleyball Magazine All-America second-team accolades. She was the WCC Player of the Year in 1997 after being LMU Women’s Volleyball

inside LMU That same year, men’s soccer earned an at-large berth into the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history. The Lions compiled a seven game winning streak during the season, including a 1-0 victory at #11 UCLA. It marked the program’s first win over UCLA, who it would face again in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, falling in a heartbreaking 3-2 double overtime decision. The Lions were ranked as high as #16 in the polls and finished the season with a 9-7-2 record. Also making waves in 2001 was men’s water polo as they won their first Western Water Polo Association Championship by defeating UC San Diego 4-2 in the final of the annual tournament. The Lions went on to the NCAA Men’s Water Polo Championship at Stanford and lost to UCLA 7-5 in the semifinals. They defeated UMass 14-6 in the consolation final to finish third. The men were as dominant in the pool as the women, winning four titles in six years - 2001, 2003, 2004, 2005.

named an All-WCC first-team selection for the third consecutive season. Noriega was a three-time AllDistrict VIII honoree, LMU’s Female Athlete of the Year (1997-98), a participant at the U.S. Olympic Festival (1995), a World Games participant, and 2000 Olympian. In her final year as a Lion, Noriega was recognized as the AVCA National Player of the Week twice (Oct. 6 and Nov. 10). On November 7, 1997, Noriega set the NCAA record for most kills in a four-game match with 47 against San Diego, a mark which still stands today. Second-year Head Coach Frank Cruz guided the Lions to their first WCC title in eight years in 1998. With the nation’s 16th best recruiting class, nearly all of which were freshmen. LMU edged rival Pepperdine by a half game for the conference crown earning the NCAA automatic bid to the West Regional at Stanford. Freshman Michael Schultz nearly no-hit Stanford in the first round (Stanford was ranked No. 2 in the nation) shutting out the Cardinal through the seventh inning. Schultz and freshman catcher Scott Walter were named WCC Pitcher and Player of the Year, the first time in WCC history freshmen from the same school garnered the awards. With their youth, the Lions would become the Lions third team to claim titles in three straight years. They successfully defended their conference crown, defeating Pepperdine in a three-game series for the WCC Championship at Page Stadium. The victory helped LMU win back-to-back titles for the first time in program history. LHP Billy Traber led the team and the WCC with 135 strikeouts while earning firstteam All-WCC honors. Anthony Angel also earned first-team honors, the only member of the squad to do so in two consecutive seasons. 2000 The new century began with baseball’s continued dominance as they had one of the most complete teams

since the 1986 College World Series team. The Lions won their third straight WCC title and their eighth NCAA bid. In 2000, women’s volleyball continued their pursuit of excellence by starting the season on a seven-match winning streak which propelled them to a season-best No. 21 AVCA ranking (Sept. 4). Success of the program has carried over into individual honors as well. Among the program’s top athletes and graduates, Stratos coached Loyola Marymount’s two AVCA AllAmerica first-team honorees, Sarah Noriega (1994-97) and Sarah McFarland (1997-00). As a member of the U.S. National Volleyball team that qualified for the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia, Sarah Noriega became the third Lion to participate in the Olympic Games. Noriega became a key member of the U.S. National team in 1998. She was named team MVP for her efforts that season in 1999. As a member of the 2000 Olympic squad, Noriega finished the summer fourth on the team with 185 kills and a .393 kill percentage. Her serves wreaked havoc for opponents throughout the Summer Games as her 17 service aces ranked second best on the team. In 2001, women’s basketball earned the program’s first postseason tournament bid with an invitation to the NIT, setting up future success for the team. In addition, Edit Pakay won the West Coast Conference with a time of 17:58 in women’s cross country and women’s water polo, who was in just their fourth year of competition at LMU, finished with the program’s first 20-win season and its first-ever WWPA title thanks to a 7-6 win over UC Davis in the championship game. The win set in motion the most successful stretch by any program in LMU history. The Lions would go on to win five straight titles - 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 - reaching the NCAA National Championship game in 2004 thanks to a win over Stanford in the NCAA semifinals. It was the first time in program history to play in a national championship game at the NCAA Division I level.

In 2002 the women’s soccer team earned their first bid to the NCAA Tournament and women’s tennis won the program’s first West Coast Conference Championship by knocking off nine-time defending champion and rival Pepperdine. The conference crown gave the Lions the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. Also in 2002, the Lions earned their second straight invitation to the NCAA Tournament after winning 14 games in the regular season, including a 2-0 win over #3 UCLA. LMU started the season with an 11-0-2 record, climbing to #7 in the national rankings. As a result of a strong regular season, LMU hosted its first

ever postseason game, with the Lions picking up their first NCAA Tournament victory with a 1-0 win over Cal State Northridge. Andres Murriagui and Arturo Torres became the first All-Americans in program history and Jeff Kovar was named an Academic All-American. The Lions returned to the NCAAs again in 2003 and 2004. In 2004, women’s basketball claimed the programs first West Coast Conference Championship, earning its first trip to the NCAA tournament. They finished the season 24-6 overall and 13-1 in the WCC action, winning the final 15 games of the regular season, including the WCC tournament. The WCC tournament champions lost to Baylor in the NCAA regional as Kate

inside LMU Murray was named WCC Player of the Year and WCC Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Adrianne Slaughter was the MVP of the WCC tournament while Head Coach Julie Wilhoit was WCC and Region 8 Coach of the Year. (WBB-2004-WCC Champs) After women’s basketball reached a milestone in March of 2004, three months later, women’s water polo added to LMU’s history. The Lions earned a 5-4 win over second ranked Stanford in the semifinals of the 2004 NCAA Women’s Water Polo Championship to advance to the national title game. It was the first time any LMU team in more than 90 years of intercollegiate sports played in a title game sponsored by the NCAA. The Lions went on to drop a heartbreaker to USC, 10-8, to finish second.The Lions advanced to the NCAA tournament thanks to their fourth straight WWPA title, earning a 7-3 win at the Burns Recreation and Aquatics Center on the LMU campus on April 25. Devon Wright earned WWPA Player of the Year honors while Head Coach John Loughran claimed his fourth straight Coach of the Year title. Teresa Guidi became the first women’s water polo player to earn first-team All-American honors. That summer a pair of Lions participated in the Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. Christine Robinson and Rachel Riddell both played for the Canadian Olympic team that season. As 2004 continued, men’s water polo earned back-toback WWPA titles thanks to a 6-3 win over Redlands in the WWPA tournament held at Davis, CA. The Lions finished with the second most wins in program history at 21-11, defeating Princeton 6-5 to finish third in the NCAA Championships. Endre Rex-Kiss was named MVP of the WWPA while also earning second-team All-America honors. They then became the fourth team in LMU history to earn three straight conference titles, defeating UC San Diego 7-6 at the Burns Center in the WWPA Championships. The Lions fell to Stanford at the NCAA Championship in a heartbreaker, 7-6 but responded to defeat St. Francis in the third place game, 10-6. They finished the season 19-16 overall and Endre Rex-Kiss earned second-team All-America honors after finishing second in LMU history with 261 career goals. In the spring of 2005, softball won the program’s second PCSC title in three years and this time earned the conference’s automatic bid to the NCAA tournament, the program’s first trip to the postseason. Also that spring, women’s water polo team set the record for wins, posting an impressive 30-7 overall record as they won their fifth straight Western Water Polo Association championship. No team in LMU history has won five straight conference titles. LMU would advance to their fifth straight NCAA Women’s Water Polo Championship The 2005-2006 season saw LMU win its first-ever West Coast Conference Commissioner’s Cup for best overall athletics program in the conference. Part of that

season saw Laura Mickelson placed fourth in the NCAA West Regional in the 5,000-meter to qualify for the NCAA Track Championships. She placed 22nd overall. Men’s basketball, in the first season under Head Coach Rodney Tention, advanced to the program’s first WCC Tournament Championship since 1989, with three players earning firstteam All-WCC honors. The Lions finished the WCC season at 8-6, defeated Saint Mary’s in the WCC Tournament Semifinals to advance to the WCC title game where they fell to fourth-ranked Gonzaga at the buzzer, the ninth game of the season decided on the final play or overtime. Senior Wes Wardrop and juniors Brandon Worthy and Matthew Knight all earned first-team All-WCC honors for leading the Lions to the WCC Basketball Championship game. Further history was made in 2005-06 when men’s golf won their first-ever West Coast Conference Championship. Freshman Brian Locke was the first Lion to win the individual championship as he was also named Freshman of the Year in the conference. The Lions would then place sixth in the NCAA West Regional to earn the program’s first trip to the NCAA Championships as they placed among the top 30 programs in the country. Matching golf that spring was women’s rowing with their first WCC Championship. In the fall of 2006, women’s soccer returned to the NCAA tournament for the second time in program history, led by WCC Defender of the Year Joslyn Slovek. Laura Mickelson was at it again as she won the individual WCC Cross Country Championship by more than a minute. That year also marked the 30th year Anniversary for women’s tennis, the longest running women’s program in LMU history. Since championships were created by the NCAA in 1981-82 for women’s programs, LMU women have won 20 of LMU’s 36 conference titles and have earned 21 NCAA tournament bids. The Lions most recent success was seen from their softball program as they finished its 2007 season with a program best 47-18 record, claiming their third PCSC title. In addition, the Lions won their first and second ever NCAA Tournament games, knocking UC Santa Barbara and UCLA out of the Los Angeles Regional before falling to Hawaii in the Regional final. LMU destroyed the competition in the PCSC, winning the conference with an 18-2 record, 6.5 games ahead of second place. Christine Foley was named Player of the Year, Tiffany Pagano was named Pitcher of the Year, Melissa Dykema was named Freshman of the Year and Gary Ferrin was named the Coach of the Year.

Capping 2007 was women’s water polo as the Lions won their sixth WWPA Championship in seven years and finished the season ranked seventh in the nation. Senior Stacia Peterson is named WWPA Player of the Year, Third-Team All-American and becomes just the seventh student-athlete overall and just the second female to earn CoSIDA Academic All-American honors. In the fall of 2007, the LMU men’s water polo team won their fifth WWPA title in seven years despite the youngest roster in program history. The Lions defeated UC Davis 7-6 in the title game as freshmen Tibor Forai and Andy Stevens, along with junior Mark Milovic, earned All-America honors. Also in the 2007-08 season, the women’s swimming program overcame a huge deficit to claim their first Pacific Coast Swim Conference Championship. The Lions completed their first perfect season at 9-0 while Rebecca Plume, Alex Wike and Alicia Witter earned individual conference titles. All told, 11 swimmers earned All-PCSC honors in 2008. Capping the year was the women’s rowing team as their Lightweight 4 team claimed its third IRA national title with a convincing victory on Cooper River in Camden, NJ. The Lion boat of seniors Jill Austin, Jen Glassman, and Jennifer Guess (cox), along with freshmen Liz LaLonde and Mary Foster, brought home the gold 12 seconds ahead of defending champion Princeton. In 2008-09, the water polo programs added to their tradition of titles as the men claimed the 2008 title and the women in 2009. It was the sixth for the men and seventh for the women, all coming in the last 10 years. For the women, senior Nicole Hughes earned second-team All-American honors and re-wrote the LMU record book. She set the record for goals in a game (8, twice), in a season (129) and a career (320). She is the first player to score more than a 100 goals in a season and 300 in a career.

director of athletics

Dr. William S. Husak F

or Dr. William S. Husak life is all about family and his 12 years as the Athletics Director at Loyola Marymount University reflects his familyfirst approach to life. And that approach has brought success never before seen at LMU. Since taking over the program in 1998, the Lions’ success has been some of the best in program history, Husak firmly believes the program has “just scratched the surface.” His administrative efforts have focused on developing a family of coaches, support staff and administrators who believe that LMU’s athletics program can be among the elite in the nation. This period of time has been marked by enhancing the support of the athletic teams through the new and updated facilities, increased scholarship and operational support and enhancing the coaching and support staff. The past 12 years have been some of the most successful seasons in school history as the Lions won over 54 percent of its dual competitions in that span and claimed the school’s first ever Commissioner’s Cup in 2006. Since 1998, LMU has claimed 26 conference championships and 32 NCAA postseason appearances. Off the field, the Lions have had a 65 percent increase in national scholar-athletes as 208 claimed the honor in the 2008-09 academic year. Husak attributes the current success and the future growth of the program to the staff that is in place. Since he took over the program, the coaching and administrative staffs that lend support to the more than 450 studentathletes has more than doubled in size. A full-time head coach will lead 19 of the varsity sports sponsored at LMU. When Husak took over, only nine of the programs were led by full-time coaches. In addition, support for the student-athletes was enhanced with the addition of 10 brand new staff positions, which included an athletic academic coordinator, marketing/promotions manager, ticket manager, corporate relations manager, two assistant athletic trainers, a two strength and conditioning assistant coaches, a assistant complaince director and an assistant media relations director. The final major piece to LMU Athletics’ growth and success has been Husak’s commitment to facilities. Since he has taken over, $30 million has been

put into athletic facilities. That list includes the Burns Aquatics Center, which was used as host to the 2002 and 2006 NCAA Men’s Water Polo Championships. It has been the only time LMU has hosted an NCAA championship. Facility enhancements have also included the brand new Smith Field (softball), Thomas Higgins Short Game Center (golf), the Morris A. Pivaroff and George P. Kading Tournament Court (tennis), and the Jane Browne Bove Boathouse. LMU’s existing facilties have also seen their share of growth, including new bleachers and scoreboard to Sullivan Field (soccer), Mikos Blue Monster and Pride Park to Page Stadium (baseball), and a new sound system, floor and bleachers in Gersten Pavilion. More is on its way as the University committed more than 7,000 square feet for coaches office at the Leavey Center. In addition, plans for the next 18 months include a new weight training facility with locker room and storage space and new locker room suites in Gersten Pavilion, including new stateof-the-art areas for men’s and women’s basketball. Husak comes from a long and accomplished background as an administrator, fundraiser and professor during a 19-year career at California State University, Long Beach. Between 1993-1998, he served as the Senior Associate Athletics Director and was mainly responsible for Athletics fundraising. While at CSULB between 1983 and 1997, Husak served as an assistant commissioner for the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA).

What do I need to do in order to play at LMU as a freshman? If you intend to participate in Division I or II athletics as a freshman, you must register and be certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center. To register, you must go on-line to www.ncaaclearinghouse.net. You will need a major credit card to complete the registration. The fee is $60 for domestic prospects ($85 for foreign prospects). The Eligibility Center evaluates your academic records as well as your amateurism status to determine whether or not you are eligibile to play Division I or II sports. You will be required to designate all high schools you have attended and answer a series of questions relating to your status as an amateur. Once you’ve completed the registration and answered the amateurism questions, you will need to have each of the high schools you have attended supply an official copy of your transcripts directly to the Eligibility Center. You will also need to arrange to have your standardized test scores sent directly from the testing agency to the NCAA Eligibility Center. This Basic information Questions?

I Want to Play at LMU... must be done directly from the testing agency’s website. The NCAA Eligibility Center routing code is 9999. If you have questions, you or your high school counselor can obtain assistance by calling the NCAA Eligibility Center at (317) 223-0700. After you graduate and before school closes for the summer, your counselor must send a copy of your final transcript to the Eligibility Center that includes your confirmation of graduation from high school. How do I know if I’m being recruited? You become a “prospective student-athlete” when you start ninth-grade classes. Before the ninth grade, you become a prospective student-athlete if a college gives you (or your relatives or friends) any financial aid or other benefits that the college does not provide to prospective students generally. You become a “recruited prospective student-athlete” at a particular college if any coach approaches you (or any member of your family) about enrolling and participating in athletics at that college. Activities by coaches that cause you to become a recruited prospective studentathlete are: (1) providing you with an official visit; (2) placing more than one telephone call to you or any other member of your family; or (3) visiting you or any other member of your family anywhere other than the college campus; or (4) issuing to you a National Letter of Intent or written offer of athletically related financial aid. Boosters: In addition to general recruiting regulations, no alumni, boosters or representatives of a college’s athletics interests can be involved in your recruitment. There can be no phone calls or letters from boosters. If an LMU booster is contacting you, please call the LMU Compliance Office as soon as possible at (310) 338-7789. Don’t risk your NCAA eligibility! When can I talk to the coach and have him/her see me play? TELEPHONE CALLS In all Sports Other Than Football and Basketball A college coach (but not a booster) is permitted to call you (or your parents or legal guardians) on or after July 1 following the completion of your junior year in high school. On or after July 1 after the completion of your junior year in high school, a college coach is permitted to call you only one time per week. Exception for Men’s Basketball ONLY Only in the sport of men’s basketball, a college coach (but not a booster) is permitted to call you (or your parents or legal guardians) one time per month on or after June 15 of your sophomore year in high school through July 31 of your junior year in high school. Coaches are permitted to call you

two (2) times per week on or after August 1 prior to your senior year in high school. For junior college and four-year transfer prospects, you may only receive one phone call per week, regardless of the time period. Exception for Women’s Basketball ONLY Only in the sport of women’s basketball, a college coach (but not a booster) is permitted to call you

In men’s basketball ONLY, coaches may accept a tollfree call from you no earlier than the conclusion of your sophomore year in high school. RECRUITING CALENDARS Keep in mind that every sport has a different recruiting calendar. A coach in a particular sport may or may not be permitted to call you during certain times of the year. When you do speak to a college coach, be sure to ask about the recruiting calendar so you understand when you can accept phone calls from college coaches. You can also find the recruiting calendars for all sports on-line at www. ncaa.org. OFF-CAMPUS CONTACTS In all Sports Other Than Football and Basketball

inside LMU A college coach is permitted to contact you in person off the college campus only on or after July 1 after the completion of your junior year in high school. A contact is any face-to-face meeting between a college coach or athletics staff member and you or your parents, during which any of you say more than “hello.” Also, any such face-to-face meeting that is prearranged or that takes place on your campus, at an organized competition or practice involving you or your high school, preparatory school, two-year college or all-star team shall be considered a contact, regardless of the conversation. Currently in all sports other than football, college coaches may contact you off the college campus no more than three times. However, a college coach may visit your high school (with the approval of your high school principal) only once a week during a contact period.

Further, all communication between you, your relatives, legal guardians, your coach, or anyone else involved with your participation in basketball, directly or indirectly, and a college coach during the month of July is prohibited. EVALUATIONS An evaluation is any off-campus activity used to assess your academic qualifications or athletics ability, including a visit to your high school (during which no contact occurs) or watching you practice or compete at any site. Currently in all sports other than football and women’s basketball, a college coach is limited to seven opportunities (contacts and evaluations combined) to recruit you and not more than three of the seven opportunities may be contacts. In women’s basketball, coaches have a limit of five opportunities with which to recruit you (contact and evaluations combined) off the college campus. Not more than three of those five opportunities may be contacts. Once you sign a National Letter of Intent, you may be evaluated an unlimited number of times by a college coach from the college with which you have signed.

rab your sunscreen and your towel, because LA has more than 50 miles of coastline and 33 public beaches, so you can always find a stretch of sand to snatch and plenty of waves to catch. But don’t forget your appetite, an extra suitcase and a sense of adventure, because LA’s coastal cities are more than just a bunch of pretty places. From the quiet enclaves of Playa del Rey and Marina del Rey just minutes from the LMU campus, to the funky ambience of Venice with its offbeat street performers, each of these waterfront wonders offers its own personality and its own take on dining, shopping, attractions and activities. Where to Eat: Coastal Cuisine Got a hankering for fresh seafood? How about a healthy entrée salad? Or a greasy burger? Our beach cities have them all. Representing diverse coastal cuisine is the spruced-up Mexican fare of celebrity chefs Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken, hosts of the Food Network’s “Too Hot Tamales,” at Border Grill Santa Monica. For even more celebrity watching, head to The Lobster in Santa Monica or Geoffrey’s on the beach in Malibu. Artist types like the Asian fusion cuisine at Chaya Venice, where local artists, musicians and movie industry moguls hang out. Meanwhile, couples enjoy romantic dinners overlooking the marina and its million-dollar yachts at Café del Rey in Marina del Rey. More casual fare can be had at a number of local hot dog and hamburger stands. And several eateries at San Pedro’s Ports O’ Call Village serve up freshly caught seafood cooked on outdoor grills.

Where to Shop: Retail Therapy If you’re looking for that perfect bathing suit or pair of sunglasses or a chic, antique accent table for your living room, you’ve come to the right place. Head to Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade for several pedestrian-only blocks full of well-known retailers such as Pottery Barn and Urban Outfitters, as well as one-of-the-kind shops, plus three multiplex cinemas and a slew of restaurants, cafes and bars. Nearby, the hottest celebs — Jennifer Aniston, Leonardo DiCaprio, Gwyneth Paltrow and George Clooney among them — shop at Fred Segal. Equally alluring is Montana Avenue, where you’ll find high-end designer boutiques, including some that are owned by celebrity clans. And if it’s quirky you want, go straight to Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice for antiques, vintage clothing, funky collectibles and locally created art — all set in the neighborhood’s laid-back beach atmosphere. What to See: Fabled Attractions When you get tired of sunbathing and surfing, there’s always something fun to do. For classic serenity, visit the Getty Villa, presiding on a promontory overlooking the ocean on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. It recently reopened after nearly a decade of renovations and has an exquisite permanent exhibition of Greek, Roman and Etruscan antiquities. Partake in good old-fashioned fun and take a ride on the 1916, fully restored carousel inside a National Historic Landmark hippodrome building on the Santa Monica Pier. The pier also is home to Pacific Park, where you can hop onto a Ferris wheel, a roller coaster and other rides and play arcade games over Santa Monica Bay.

Just south of the pier, there’s plenty to gawk at along the Venice Beach boardwalk, from the off-the-wall street performers on Ocean Front Walk, to the washboard stomachs and bulging biceps at the Muscle Beach outdoor gym. Or rent some skates and draw some of your own attention. If you’re farther south, visit the spectacular wood and glass Wayfarers Chapel, designed by Lloyd Wright, Frank’s son, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean just south of Palos Verdes. While you’re in the area, stop by the pristine Trump National Golf Club for a round of golf and breathtaking views. If it’s family fun you’re looking for, you can get an up-close-and-personal look at the Pacific Ocean’s inhabitants at the Aquarium of the Pacific on Rainbow Harbor in Long Beach. In San Pedro, the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium recently had a $10 million facelift and features a hands-on Exploration Center and an aquatic nursery. While you’re in San Pedro, catch the fantastic views from Point Fermin Lighthouse, one of LA’s most historic landmarks. Or better yet, take a stroll on the new San Pedro Waterfront Promenade, lined with magnolias, peppermint trees and colorful gardens. If you’d rather be on the water, you can take a cruise with Hornblower Cruises & Events in Marina del Rey or with Spirit Cruises & Yacht Parties in San Pedro. Dinner cruises are available, and if you want to celebrate a special occasion with 40 to 400 of your closest friends, you can charter yachts from Hornblower, Spirit or FantaSea Yachts & Yacht Club. You can even get away to Catalina, the “island of romance,” in less than an hour and a half from San Pedro or Long Beach via the Catalina Express ferry. Where to Stay: Hot, Hip Hotels After a day in the sun, there are plenty of places to relax and get a good night’s sleep. Santa Monica Beach is virtually the backyard of Shutters on the Beach and Casa Del Mar. Just steps away are Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel and Le Merigot, a JW Marriott Beach Hotel and Spa. Nearby, the Viceroy Santa Monica is a hip, urban, boutique retreat, while the historic Fairmont Miramar Hotel Santa Monica. For a little vintage style, stay at Venice Beach Suites & Hotel, right in the midst of Venice’s bustling scene. Farther south, the Marina del Rey Marriott and the Ritz-Carlton Marina del Rey overlook thousands of yachts moored in one of the world’s largest man-made recreational marinas.

NCAA Participant

The West Coast Conference was formed in 1952 to provide a convenient venue for five San Francisco Bay Area schools to compete in basketball. Since that modest beginning, the Conference has evolved and grown to become a nationally recognized and competitive force in intercollegiate athletics, with 13 league-sponsored sports: baseball; both men’s and women’s basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, and tennis; and women’s volleyball and crew. The eight WCC members span the western coast of the United States from Canada to Mexico, from the pine forests of Eastern Washington, to the Columbia River Basin, to the dynamic San Francisco Bay Area, to the sunny beaches of Southern California, the Conference is characterized by the stability of its membership - only two conferences have been together longer - and its unique emphasis on combining excellence in athletics with excellence in academics. The original five schools—the University of San Francisco, Santa Clara University, Saint Mary’s College, San Jose State University, and the University of the Pacific—expanded the membership in 1955 to include Pepperdine University and Loyola Marymount University in Southern California. At that time, the league changed its name from “California Basketball Association” to the “West Coast Athletic Conference.” The current alignment, which also includes Gonzaga University, the University of Portland and the University of San Diego, has remained unchanged since 1978. The Conference, which changed its name to the current “West Coast Conference” in 1990, recognizes championships in each of its sports, has hosted NCAA championship events, and produced 26 NCAA Division I individual or team champions. In addition, many outstanding WCC student-athletes have gone on to excel in professional sports.

The long and rich history of the WCC demonstrates that success in intercollegiate athletics can be built on the foundation of values, character, and academics.

volleyball history - life after lmu Sarah Noriega: 2000 Olympian As a member of the U.S. National Volleyball team that qualified for the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia, Sarah Noriega became the third Lion to participate in the Olympic Games. Noriega became a key member of the U.S. National Team in 1998. In her inaugural year with the team, she played in 68 games and tallied 191 kills on 498 attacks. She also added 26 aces and 43 stuff blocks. Noriega had an even better sophomore season with the National Team, as she played in 144 games and led Team USA in kills (409), blocks (82) and aces (28). She was named Team MVP for her efforts that season. As a member of the 2000 Olympic squad, Noriega finished the summer fourth on the team with 185 kills and a .393 kill percentage. Her serves wreaked havoc for opponents throughout the Summer Games as her 17 service aces ranked second best on the team.

Q&A with Olympian Sarah Noriega What was your favorite Olympic moment? I have so many, but I think the opening ceremonies was the most memorable. It was so incredible being able to represent my country in the greatest sporting event in the world. The feeling of first stepping foot on the field after coming through the tunnel is indescribable. Then seeing the Olympic flame lit topped the whole experience off. It is something I will always cherish.

What were some of the academic support services available to you at LMU? Going from high school to collegiate academics was a big adjustment for me, but easy access to helpful staff and materials helped me a great deal. I frequently took advantage of the Learning Resource Center where I met with advisors. The LRC helped me tremendously and was able to set up personal tutoring whenever I needed it.

Why did you choose LMU? LMU, Texas and Nebraska were the three main schools I had narrowed my decision down to. LMU seemed like the best fit for me because I got along with the players and coaching staff the best. LMU’s academics played a big factor, as well as the location of the school. I wanted to experience LA, and this was the best way I saw to be able to do that.

How did playing at LMU help you reach your goals of being an All-American and an Olympian? First and foremost, being in a safe and productive environment allowed me to relax and feel comfortable to give my best effort. I owe the majority of my success to Coach Stratos and to Coach Smoot. They were the ones who recognized the potential of a skinny girl and took a chance in developing her into a great athlete. They constantly supported, encouraged and challenged me. They worked so hard to help me realize my dreams. I owe them big time!

What did you like about the local area surrounding LMU? I came from a small midwest town so moving to Los Angeles was a little intimidating at first. LMU’s location, though, is perfect. Not only are you minutes away from the beach cities, airport, and major freeways, but you have the peace and tranquility of the school itself and its surrounding residential community. LMU is located in a small, safe community, but close enough to the things that make college memorable.

2009 LMU volleyball

What were the academic advantages of attending LMU? I liked that LMU offered the opportunity to not only know my peers, but to develop relationships with the professors as well. I never felt like I was just a number in an auditorium full of students. LMU and its sister schools stem from a long tradition of academic excellence, therefore, allowing the university to be connected with the top personnel in nearly every field of study it offers.

74

Is there anything you would change about your playing career? There have been times in my career when I haven’t enjoyed playing and experienced some terrible moments. At the time I wished I could change things or that I didn’t have to endure those bad times, but in retrospect I needed to experience them. It was those moments of self doubt, fatigue, mental and physical exhaustion that helped me to learn more about myself. I think that every athlete experiences moments like that; but it’s athletes that choose to persevere through those times that succeed and excel. So, in short, no I wouldn’t have changed any part of the road that I have traveled. I know that there are still many more obstacles and I hope I have learned enough to endure and overcome those challenges as well.

Heather Hughes: National Team After “growing up” in the U.S. Women’s National Team system, serving as a U.S. Women’s National A2 Team alternate in 2007, a USA Volleyball Junior National Team alternate in 2006 and U.S. Girls’ Youth A2 alternate in 2003 and 2004, Heather Hughes finally received her shot to show her talent on one of volleyball’s highest stages. The native of Fallbrook, Calif. competed in a 13-player tryout for the U.S. Women’s National Volleyball Team from January 7-12 at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. Playing alongside the U.S. Women’s National Training Team, the tryout participants were put through a rigorous week of drills and conditioning culminating with morning six-on-six scrimmages on Jan. 11 and Jan. 12. Upon completion of the tryout, the coaching staff evaluated the talent and asked several players, including Hughes, to return to Colorado Springs and train full-time during the spring with the U.S. Women’s National Training Photo Courtesy of USA Volleyball Team. When asked about the selection, Hughes said, “I am very excited to have this opportunity to play with some of the world’s best players, and after always being on the border of making the team and being selected as an alternate for the A2 squad the past few years, I finally made the team. I always knew that playing volleyball at such a high level was what I wanted to do.”

Following successful showings in practices and scrimmages, Hughes was named to the U.S. Women’s National Training Volleyball Team travel squad that took a three-week training tour of China, leading the team to four different locations for training sessions and exhibition matches against Chinese club teams. In those matches, Hughes scored 68 points as the primary opposite hitter, tallying 60 kills, four blocks and four aces as Team USA won five of eight matches with a young squad. Hughes continued to make headlines as a part of the U.S. Women’s National Volleyball squad, this time earning a spot to play in the Pan American Cup from May 30 to June 7 at Mexicali and Tijuana, Mexico. The Pan American Cup was used primarily to evaluate young talent for Team USA. Continuing to improve with every day, Hughes was singled out amongst the group of players who earned a bid to train with the National Team. “You take this group that has been training since January, Heather Hughes is one that definitely sticks out,” U.S. National Team Assistant Coach Tom Hogan said. “She has impressed her teammates and coaching staff, while her level of play continues to elevate. It is important for players like her to gain this international experience at the Pan American Cup.” Seizing every opportunity to impress the coaching staff, Hughes compiled 35 points in 27 sets at the Pan American Cup, including averages of 1.04 kills, 0.15 aces, 0.14 blocks and 1.30 points per set. Showing versatility at an extremely high level of competition, Hughes took over at the libero position due to illness, playing her first-ever match at the position in the fifth-place match of the Pan American Cup, and received 46 of the 95 service chances compiling an 83 positive percent.

volleyball history - life after lmu emily day: avp/indoor pro volleyball Former Lion Emily Day is the latest of a string of Lions to post success at the professional level after graduating from the LMU volleyball program. The native of Torrance, Calif., who finished her final season as a Lion just a year ago, has seen tremendous success in beach volleyball, while also just recently signing a professional contract with Volleyball Franches-Montagne of Switzerland. The Swiss indoor season runs from October through late March.

Prior to signing the contract to play in Switzerland, Day has excelled on the beach circuit, competing amongst the best in the AVP. There, she has played in five events so far on the main tour (as of July 9, 2009), finishing as high as 17th while teamed with partner Heather Lowe on three occasions. Playing on the AVP’s developmental tour with teammate Diane Pascua, Day won the AVP’s Young Guns beach tournament on May 2 and 3, 2009 in Manhattan Beach, Calif. 94 teams entered the AVP’s Young Guns event (51 men, 43 women), with A.J. Mihalic and Kevin McColloch capturing the men’s side. For the first-place finish, which was Day’s first on the AVP tour, she was featured in an issue of DiG Magazine. In addition, Day was invited by the AVP to its Elite Camp/Combine, which featured 16 of the top collegiate indoor volleyball players, and served as a “boot camp” for transitioning to the beach game. At the camp, Day won the “Queen of the Beach” and the overall camp tournament, earning a berth for her partner, Devon Sutherland, and herself in the main draw of the Riverside AVP event. Her journey to and through the Riverside event was detailed on the CBS College Sports Network show “AltGames: Go Pro or Go Home.” Prior to the Elite Camp/Combine, Day and her partner, Claire D’Amore, made up one of 50 beach volleyball teams (27 women, 23 men) that participated in USA Volleyball’s first International Development Qualifier (IDQ) on March 15, 2009 in Long Beach, Calif. The IDQ was the first of two that USAV held to identify elite beach athletes for entry into select international events – both FIVB and NORCECA – and other USAV high performance beach programs. To qualify, teams competed in a pool play tournament with three teams advancing from each pool into a single elimination playoff. The winners of the March 15 men’s tournament were Ty Loomis (Corona del Mar, Calif.) and Casey Patterson (Huntington Beach, Calif.), while Day and D’Amore took the crown on the women’s side. For their efforts, the duo was selected to represent the USA at Barbicon Park in Kingston, Jamaica for the 2009 NORCECA Women’s Continental Circuit event at the end of June, 2009. There, they took home the Gold Medal over eight other countries. Day and D’Amore relied on their strong blocking and strategic cross-court attacks to defeat Puerto Rico’s Yarleen Santiago and Dariam Acevedo in the final match, 21-14, 21-18. The duo, which went undefeated in the tournament, beat Costa Rica’s Ingrid Morales and Natalia Alfaro in the semifinals, 21-9, 21-16. Furthering her play for the USA, Day was selected in June of 2009 by USA volleyball to be part of the A2 (Under-26) Training Team for the SWATCH FIVB World Tour stop in Aland, Finland from August 17-22, 2009.

Sarah mcFARLAND

Outside Hitter 1994-1997 Described by many as “one of the top players in the country” during her career at LMU, Noriega elevated standards for the future of LMU women’s volleyball in her four seasons with the Lions. In 1997, Noriega became the first LMU player to earn AVCA All-America first-team honors as well as Volleyball Magazine All-America second-team accolades. She was the WCC Player of the Year in 1997 after being named an All-WCC firstteam selection for the third consecutive season. Noriega was a three-time All-District VIII honoree, LMU’s Female Athlete of the Year (1997-98), a participant at the U.S. Olympic Festival (1995), a World Games participant, and 2000 Olympian. In her final year as a Lion, Noriega was recognized as the AVCA National Player of the Week twice (Oct. 6 and Nov. 10). On November 7, 1997, Noriega set the NCAA record for most kills in a four-game match with 47 against San Diego, a mark which still stands today. She was inducted into the LMU Athletics Hall of Fame in 2009.

Outside Hitter 1997-2000 McFarland, a three-time AllWCC first-team selection and two-time LMU Female Athlete of the Year (1999-2000, 2000-01), became the first athlete in program history to earn AVCA AllAmerican honors in consecutive seasons (1999, 2000). In 1999, it was a second-team All-America selection, but by 2000, she was a first-team All-American. She led the nation in kills for two straight years, posting an incredible 762 kills in 2000. McFarland’s single-season kill total is tops in the LMU and WCC record books. Her 6.43 kill per game average still ranks first in NCAA history. She had a 52-kill performance at home against No.14 Ohio State on Sept. 10, 1999, a mark that came just four shy of the NCAA five-game record of 56 kills and led her to her first of two career AVCA National Player of the Week awards. Overall, she holds five NCAA national records, the most by any one player. She was inducted into the LMU Athletics Hall of Fame in 2007.
