2011 Season preview After being picked to finish last in the West Coast Conference last year, the 2010 LMU Lions posted a 15-15 overall record and a 6-8 mark in the WCC to claim fourth overall. The 2011 squad returns 10 players, including five starters, from a year ago as it looks to improve on its fourth-place finish in the newly expanded nine-team WCC. After having just two seniors on the roster in 2010, LMU will now sport four in 2011, including first team All-West Coast Conference selection Jasmine Rankins.

One of the most improved players according to Black, senior Emily Cheek “has made big gains. She has tremendous height and power, and she is now more repeatable in her actions and is reading the game better. Emily has put in a great deal of work and dedication to become a six-rotation outside hitter, and she is battling for the starting spot. At the very least, she will give us a ton of depth and have a significant role for us this year.” Cheek appeared in 16 matches and 29 sets for the Lions last year, totaling 23 kills on 82 attacks.

Outside Hitter The coaching staff has been extremely pleased with what could be considered the deepest position on the roster this year – outside hitter. Led by senior first team All-WCC selection Jasmine Rankins, the Lions have a number of viable options to play on the outside this season. A preseason All-Conference selection, “Rankins is on the verge of having a special season,” Black said. “Jasmine is a six-rotation player who can hit with power and pass the ball. She is also a lethal server, blocks well and reads the play well. Simply put, Jasmine is the whole package, and we expect big things from her this year.”

Despite appearing in just six sets and four matches as a freshman, Black has been impressed with the versatility and spirit that Taylor Sciosica brings to the program. “Taylor is a special player,” Black said. “She will do anything she can to help the team at any time, and we use her all over the court in practice and get no complaints. Taylor works as hard as she can at all times and has developed into a really nice volleyball player. During games our servers rely on her for the feedback she gives, and she is a major factor to the spirit of this team.”

LMU’s Female Most Improved Athlete of the Year, Rankins notched a team-high 425 kills at a rate of 3.79 per set to finish second in the WCC last year. She served-up a conference-best 50 aces at a rate of .45 per set, and finished the year ranked 16th in the nation in terms of aces per set. An all-around talent, Rankins also led the team in block solos with 12 and finished the year with 46 block assists to total 58 blocks at a rate of .52 per set.

“Felicia Arriola is going to be one of our captains despite redshirting this year,” Black said. “We just want to get her healthy so she can have two strong years for us in the future. Our coaching staff is in constant awe of Felicia’s dedication and investment into this team. She is holding people accountable as if she is going to play the next day, and that leadership is invaluable.”

Arriola appeared in 29 of LMU’s 30 matches as a sophomore, including starting 28. She amassed 240 kills at a rate of 2.35 per set, while also posting 15 service aces and 233 digs at a rate of 2.28 per set. Active on the block, she totaled 23 blocks, including three block solos and 20 block assists. Opposite After receiving the bulk of the starting duties as a freshman en route to an honorable mention All-WCC selection and a spot on the AllFreshman team, Alyse Hensley is poised to serve as the starting opposite once again in 2011. Hensley made an immediate impact as a freshman, posting 258 kills at a rate of 2.50 per set. She hit .290 over the course of the year, committing just 69 errors over 651 attacks. Active on the block, she posted three block solos and 54 block assists to total 57 total blocks. “Alyse hit at an incredibly high clip last year, and she is only going to get better,” Black said. “She played a lot of volleyball this summer, and as a result, her defense and serve receive has improved to the point where we may use her in the passing rotation.” Setter Junior Olivia Bailey is once again the frontrunner to earn the starts at the setter position in 2011. Bailey enters the 2011 season ranked 10th on the LMU All-Time Record List for assists with 1,262. The native of Dallas, Texas finished last year with 1,101 assists at a rate of 10.19 per set to place third in the WCC. She also managed 65 kills, recorded 226 digs, and posted 42 total blocks, including three

HEAD COACH

TOM BLACK

SECOND SEASON

Tom Black enters his second season as LMU’s head coach after being hired on January 19th, 2010. In his inaugural season, Black guided his 2010 roster of Lions to an even 15-15 mark and a fourth-place finish in the West Coast Conference after being selected to finish eighth in the 2010 preseason coaches’ poll. Black saw two of his athletes garner All-Conference recognition at the conclusion of the season as Jasmine Rankins took home first team honors and Alyse Hensley earned an honorable mention nod and a spot on the

All-Freshman team. Including a 115-29 record at Division II UC San Diego, Black has accumulated a 130-44 record as a head coach in women’s volleyball. The .747 winning percentage is the third-best mark in the NCAA amongst active head coaches with a minimum of five years as a four-year college head coach, but with fewer than five years at the Division I level. Most recently, Black spent the summer of 2011 as a consultant coach for the US National Team as it prepares for the 2012 London Games. The summer stint with the National Team was Black’s second in as many years. Under his title, Black primarily assisted in the training sessions at the American Sports Center as the US National Team readied itself to compete in the Montreux Volley Masters event held from June 7-12 in Montreux, Switzerland. The US finished Pool Play with a 2-1 record and advanced to the bronze-medal match before falling to China in four sets. Before coming to LMU, Black served five seasons at the helm of the UC San Diego women’s volleyball program. In all, Black coached four UCSD players to All-America selections, including a trio in 2009. Moreover, the 2006 Tachikara/AVCA D-II Pacific Region Coach of the Year watched 20 of his student-athletes garner California Collegiate Athletic Association All-Conference recognition, capped by five selections in 2009. Over his five years, Black posted a career record of 115-29, good for a .799 winning percentage, and saw his teams ranked in the AVCA Top-25 of every week for his final four seasons.

The native of Fallbrook, Calif. competed in a 13-player tryout for the U.S. Women’s National Volleyball Team at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. in 2007. 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 Team.

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. Prior to the Elite Camp/Combine, Day and a partner made up one of 50 beach volleyball teams that participated in USA Volleyball’s first International Development Qualifier (IDQ) on March 15, 2009 in Long Beach, Calif. After winning the event, Day 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, she took home the Gold Medal over eight other countries.

RIGHT PLACE. RIGHT TIME.

M

aybe that we’re the only Catholic University in Los Angeles and one of the world’s renowned Jesuit institutions, a group that includes 28 universities in the United States and over 100 schools worldwide. Or, maybe, it is that Loyola Marymount University has been called a Hidden Gem by the Washington Post and ranked among the Best in the West by U.S. News & World Report. Or that our serene campus, overlooking Marina del Rey, offers one of the most exhilarating academic locations anywhere. Or that our five colleges, all connected to Los Angeles, enable students to make current contacts in technology, business, politics, art, music, and naturally, the entertainment industry. Yet there’s something more to consider. If you’re looking for a place to acquire facts and skills that will help you get along in the world, you have many choices. But if you’re looking for a place where there is more, a place that strives for the education of the whole person, LMU may be the place for you. At LMU, we inspire you to take ideas apart and learn how they fit together. You’ll test your limits, forge enduring friendships, promote justice and become a contributing citizen of the world. Our curriculum is broad and deep. Our pace is demanding. Our expectations are high. Our plans are ambitious. And for 100 years we have been looking for curious, accomplished, enterprising, visionary students to make this their right time and their right place.

A VIEW TO A promising future.

T

he Chronicle of Higher Education notes that at Jesuit institutions, this precept “translates into a large amount of individual attention from faculty members and accessibility to high-level administrators, including the president.” At LMU, students don’t simply benefit from cura personalis; they practice it, too, carrying out the Jesuit ideal of “men and women for others.” The Marymount sisters contribute a history of educating women and teaching through the arts, with a deliberately international perspective that encourages respect for all cultures. LMU brings these gifts together in seven colleges: • Business Administration • Communications and Fine Arts • Film and Television • Liberal Arts • Science and Engineering • School of Education • Loyola Law School

oyola Marymount’s Mission and Goals Statement, approved by the Board of Trustees in 1990, succinctly states in its preamble the university’s three-fold mission:

* The encouragement of learning * The education of the whole person * The service of faith and the promotion of justice These often quoted phrases are at the heart of the campus community’s communal self-understanding. When unpacked, they tell us much about LMU’s identity as a Catholic, Jesuit/Marymount university.

history of champions.

1900s

2000s

F 1930s

1940s

rom the very beginning, LMU has established a history of champions. In the 1930s it was three straight ice hockey championships. In the 1940s the legendary Pete Newell played for the Lions and the rivalry with Pepperdine (1941) began. The 1950s saw Bob Boyd win the NCAA title in the 100-yard dash. The 1960s saw the Lions win their first basketball championship, and one of their first Olympians, rower Hugh Miller Foley (1964). In the 1970s, Loyola and Marymount colleges merged and saw women’s sports begin their dominate history, including a pair of tennis championships (1977, 78). LMU then exploded in the 1980s with more individual national champions (Therese Kozlowki in cross country) and more Olympians (Paul Sunderland men’s volleyball gold medal in 1984). The decade also included LMU’s trip to the College World Series (1986) and two women’s rowing Varsity Four National Titles (1981, 89). The 1990s started with one of the most memorable moments in sports history with the men’s basketball run to the NCAA Elite Eight in the 1989-90 season. Women’s volleyball became the first program to win three straight WCC titles (1994, 95, 96), thanks in part to Olympian and All-American Sarah Noriega. Baseball would end the 1990s with three straight titles, the final coming in 2000. Then came the past decade, as the Lions won more titles (36) than the previous 70 years combined and yet another Gold Medal (Reid Priddy 2008 men’s volleyball). Leading the way were the men and women’s water polo programs, winning a combined 16 titles in 11 years. The current decade includes men’s water polo winning its fourth straight title and men’s soccer claiming their first in 2010.

8 Insider Info: • Athletics at 100 • LMU at 100 • Centennial Schedule • Athletics History • LMU All-Americans • LMU Championships

t is a common and accepted practice for institutions of higher education in the United States to date their founding to the day and year when the first instruction was offered. LMU began when the Society of Jesus opened the high school division of their newly founded Los Angeles College on September 11, 1911 with 80 boys of high school age. It changed names three times by the time it became Loyola University of Los Angeles in 1930 on a third site (our present Westchester campus). With the merger of Loyola University and Marymount College in 1973 the name changed again. Loyola Marymount University’s centennial will begin with commencement in 2011 and conclude with Commencement in 2012, naming graduates of both classes as “Centennial Classes.” The Centennial celebration at Loyola Marymount University, LMUat100, kicked

53

off with the 2011 Commencement ceremonies and will continue through May 2012. LMU Athletics will celebrate along with the University with a full list of special events, frequent online features and Centennial games for each of its NCAA Division I programs. The events for athletics started with the record-setting LionsFund Golf Classic and Dinner Auction in May, and with the start of the fall 2011 sports season, the LMUat100 Celebration will be a busy one. The Lions will honor LMUat100 with a Centennial game for each of its programs, starting with men’s water polo against rival Pepperdine on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 12 noon. Each game will feature special promotions and features that sport, its history at LMU, and the student-athletes and coaches who have made it a rich part of LMU’s history.

n 2011-2012, Loyola Marymount University will celebrate its Centennial, bringing to a close its first 100 years on the bluff. Within the athletic department, the last 14 years of that history has been led by Dr. William S. Husak, who was hired as Director of Intercollegiate Athletics in 1998. Those 14 years just happen to be the most prolific as Husak leads the Lions into a new century that will be as focused as ever on his mission of winning championships, achieving success in the classroom through graduating all student-athletes in four years and helping them grow as individuals as they move on to the next stages of their life. Since 1998, LMU has seen its most overall success in school history as the Lions have won over 58 percent of its dual competitions in that span and claimed 30 of its overall 43 conference championships (among sports currently sponsored by LMU within NCAA Division I competition) and 39 of its 61 NCAA postseason appearances. Off the field, the Lions continue to rank among the best in the West Coast Conference and in the west in the NCAA’s APR and Graduation Rate, and in 2010-11, a record 225 student-athletes claimed the National Academic Honors. Husak attributes the success that has come on the field and classroom to the commitment to athletics from the University as a whole and people within it. And for Husak it is all about the people. He has been committed to developing a family of coaches, support staff and administrators who believe that LMU’s athletics program can be among the elite in the nation. His tenure has been marked by enhancing the support of the athletic teams through: • Staff: Growth of head coaches from 9 to 19 in 10 years • Facilities: $35 million in enhancements since 2000 • Operational: LionsFund support at record high • Endowments: Scholarships tops among WCC Husak is quick to acknowledge the success of athletics is due to a University committed to its programs. Leading this direction was the formation of the Athletic Director’s Council.

A HUB OF ACTIVITY.

LMU athletic medicine

T

he busiest place per square foot on the campus of Loyola Marymount University is not what one would think. It is not LMU’s oncampus commons area, the Lair, University Hall or the LMU bookstore. It is the LMU Athletics Training Room. Right around 1,000-square feet, the LMU training room at any given moment in season is what Assistant Athletics Director of Athletic Medicine Keith Ellison calls “organized and controlled chaos.” On a given day, the Athletics Training Room will see about half of the 450 student-athletes at LMU. A given day will include lots of paperwork, therapy for studentathletes recovering from injuries that keep them out of competition, appointments with doctors and pre- and post-practice needs. With more than 50 years of experience in the field, the Training Program provides services that include a philosophy that places a high value on health and wellness, a program that allows injured student-athletes to return to their sport as soon as medically safe and to substantially reduce the risk of athletic injury for those student-athletes.

GERSTEN PAVILION. O

ne of Southern California’s premier athletic facilities, Albert Gersten Pavilion begins its 30th year as home of the Loyola Marymount Lions. Since opening night, the Pavilion has become one of toughest places to play in the West Coast Conference. The 63,000-square foot facility, which had state-of-the-art flooring installed before the 2009 season, boasts a functional design, featuring rounded columns at each corner, separated by mirrored glass. It houses the programs’ extensive weight rooms, stateof-the-art training and medical facilities, and is the home of all indoor athletic events, including women’s volleyball and men’s and women’s basketball games. The volleyball Lions first moved into the facility in 1982, and recorded 14 wins in Gersten’s inaugural season. Since 1982, the Lions have posted an overall record of 247-132 (.652) in the friendly confines of the Pavilion. In conference play, the record is even more impressive with a 124-56 (.689) home record in WCC action. In 29 years, the 1996 (WCC volleyball championship team and Sweet Sixteen participant) and 2003 (NCAA second round appearance) squads have been the most successful with 14-1 marks, for .933 winning percentages. One of the largest regular season crowds in program history gathered in 2004 to see LMU top local rival Pepperdine, 3-1, in West Coast Conference action. With 1,142 fans in attendance, it was the largest Gersten Pavilion volleyball crowd since LMU hosted the playoffs during the 1996 Sweet Sixteen season. Built to accommodate the 1984 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles, the Pavilion served as the host site for the weightlifting competition of the Games. More than 1,000 people were involved with the staging of the event which, at that time, attracted the largest number of weightlifting competitors in the history of the Olympics. More than two million people were brought into the Pavilion through television, radio, newspapers and wire services that attended the competition.

WHERE THE lions play. LMU athletic facilities

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 a three-year period will show lots of growth.
