COACHING STAFF

head coach • 10th season

A

fter becoming the first full-time women’s swimming coach at LMU, Bonnie Adair enters her 10th season with the Lions, having been named 2008 Pacific Collegiate Swimming Conference Coach of the Year. Adair joined the LMU program in 2002-03 with a 35-year background in swimming. In her first season as a full-time head coach, Adair added 17 newcomers to the program’s roster, which doubled the team’s size and jump-started the new era of LMU swimming. Since her arrival, Adair has turned the LMU program into a contender at the Division I level, culminating in LMU’s first title in 2008. The Lions finished third in the conference in 2005 and set 16 of 19 school records in a historymaking season. LMU earned its first two conference event titles in 2005, winning both the 200 medley relay (Lauren Mathewson, Morgan Finley, Angela Samuels, Katie Hicks) and the 100 backstroke (Mathewson). The 2005-06 Lions added four more PCSC titles, winning the 200 medley relay (Mathewson, Sarah Hamilton, Samuels, Hicks), the 100 freestyle (Hicks), the 100 breaststroke (Hamilton) and the 100 backstroke (Mathewson). LMU posted a dual record of 9-5 in that season, marking the second straight winning season under Adair. Highlighted by 11 new school records and four PCSC event titles, Loyola Marymount finished second of 14 teams in the conference at the 2006-07 PCSC Championship. The team finished 7-5 in dual meets to extend Adair’s winningseason streak to three straight. PCSC Championship triple winner Mathewson,

Mathewson’s three event titles came in the 50 freestyle, 100 backstroke, and 200 backstroke, earning her PCSC Swimmer of the Year honors. She was also a member of the 200 medley relay, along with Finley, Samuels and Wike, which shattered the existing meet record by over a second en route to the Lion victory. In 2008, Adair made it four straight winning seasons, turning in a perfect 9-0 record in dual meets en route to her first PCSC Coach of the Year selection. The perfect record marked the first time in school history that a team had gone undefeated. Adair and the Lions capped the outstanding season with a first-place finish at the PCSC Championships, posting a school-record 11 swimmers on the All-Conference Team. Alex Wike claimed the top-spot in the 50 freestyle, Rebecca Plume won the 500 freestyle and Alicia Witter took home the individual title in the 100 freestyle event. 2009 proved to be another successful year for Adair and the Lions, as LMU finished second at the PCSC Championship, just 22 points short of another team title. Despite finishing second, LMU scored over 140 more points than the 2008 Championship team, and Lion swimmers won five individual and three relay events, by far the most in LMU history. In addition, Adair saw Anne Scott named PCSC Swimmer of the Year and her Lions set four new PCSC records and six LMU records.

2012 Season Review

2012 Review

MPSF Championships

LMU finished eighth at the 2012 MPSF Championship after a tough four-day competition held at East Los Angeles College. The team of Christina Cannata, Jill Dahle, Diana Safa and Katie Rick combined for a time of 7:40.09 in the 800 freestyle, while UCSB posted a time of 7:17.82 to win the race during the opening day of competition. LMU’s Sophie Allen, Camille Hopp, Yvonne Le and Noelani Vargas later teamed to post a mark of 1:45.28 in the 200 medley relay. The LMU swimming team wrapped up the second day of competition from the MPSF Championships on Thursday, sending swimmers into a pair of event finals, including Camille Hopp in the Championship Final of the 50 freestyle. Hopp reached the final after swimming a season-best 23.24 in the preliminaries. In the final, Hopp posted a mark of 23.40 to place sixth overall. Noelani Vargas also managed to reach a final in the 50 freestyle, posting a 24.18 in the preliminaries before swimming a 24.30 in the Bonus Final to place fifth in that race. LMU had two more swimmers reach the Bonus Final in the 200 individual medley, as Christina Cannata and Yvonne Le each posted a time of 2:09.45. Cannata had previously managed a time of 2:09.86 in the preliminaries, while Le touched in 2:10.29. The Lions last hit the water in the 400 medley relay as the team of Sophie Allen, Hopp, Le and Jill Dahle combined for a mark of 3:50.92. That time placed eighth overall as UC Santa Barbara stopped the clock at 3:39.89 to finish first. After a couple of tough days, Friday was far more productive for LMU. Senior Tammy Choy led the Lion charge by qualifying for the Championship final in the 100 backstroke with a personal-best time of 56.70, third-fastest in LMU history. The 200 freestyle relay was also a highlight, placing fourth out of 10 teams, in spite of having top sprinter, Kjirsten Magnuson, on the sidelines. Camille Hopp, who on Thursday tied Anne Scott’s program record in the individual event with a 23.21, led off the relay followed by junior Noelani Vargas, sophomore Katie Rick and senior Jillian Dahle. Dahle earlier qualified for the Consolation final in the 200 freestyle, dropping her personalbest time by almost a full second to a 1:51.99 and placing 13th overall. Hopp also scored points for the Lions by winning the Consolation final in the 100 breaststroke with a 1:03.94. Rick and junior Stephanie Hess also qualified to swim in the bonus consolation and placed 19th and 21st. Rick’s time in the preliminaries of 1:06.48 was also a lifetime-best time and sixth on LMU’s All-time Top-10 list. Vargas and Junior Sophie Allen joined Choy in the evening finals of the 100 backstroke, with Allen swimming in the Consolation final placing 12th and Vargas swimming in the bonus Consolation placing 18th with a lifetime-best time of 58.61. Friday’s finals began with the 400 individual medley which had two Lions, senior Christina Cannata and sophomore Mary Kate Short, swimming in the Bonus Consolation. They placed 22nd and 23rd, respectively. LMU swimmers had another good day to wrap up the 2012 MPSF Swimming and Diving Championships on Saturday. The Lions started off the evening’s finals with three consecutive wins. Senior Tammy Choy and junior Noelani Vargas each won their 200 backstroke races, with Choy taking the Consolation final for ninth place in a 2:03.22 and Vargas the Bonus Consolation for 17th with a lifetime-best of 2:04.60. Choy is the current LMU record holder in the event and Vargas moves into the fifth spot on LMU’s All-Time Top Ten list. LMU’s other win came from senior Jill Dahle, who made a switch from the 1650 Freestyle event to the shorter 100 freestyle sprint and did herself proud by winning the Bonus Consolation for 17th place with a 52.17. That sliced almost a second off Dahle’s previous best time and makes her the seventh-fastest sprinter in LMU history. In addition, Dahle holds the number two spot in the 500 freestyle and number three spots in the 1000 and 1650 freestyle events. Both of the Lion `milers’ (1650 freestyle) posted strong swims. Sophomore Mary Kate Short turned in a 17:35.71, good for 22nd place and senior Terry Rinder ended her collegiate career on a strong note, breaking the 18:00 barrier with a 17:56.19. Short holds the second-fastest time in LMU history and Rinder the fifth. LMU had three breaststrokers in the 200 event, led by junior Camille Hopp who placed 14th in the evening finals with a 2:20.84. Junior Stephanie Hess and sophomore Katie Rick swam in the Bonus Consolation and placed 20th and 21st, respectively. Rick swam to a lifetime-best in the morning’s preliminaries with a 2:25.72 which ranks her seventh on the All-Time Top-10 list. Hopp is second on the list, and Hess is fourth.

THE MSPF

Year Three ABOUT THE MPSF

The Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) was established during the 1992-1993 season to serve the competitive needs of member institutions from the Big West, Pacific-10 and Western Athletic Conferences, as well as other selected universities in the western United States; and to provide championships competition for Division I intercollegiate Olympic sports in a conference setting. The founding principles on which the MPSF was originally formed were to provide enhanced competition and championship opportunities for sports without conference affiliation; to contain the costs of competition; and to ensure the survival of sports impacted by Title IX and other fiscal pressures. The Federation has also served as an incubator for emerging women’s sports and as a safe harbor for sports impacted by conference realignments. Since its inaugural season the Federation has seen its primary conference membership grow by the addition of the Mountain West and West Coast Conferences and their respective member institutions, as well as the addition of women’s water polo, women’s gymnastics, women’s lacrosse and men’s and women’s swimming. As a testament to its viability, the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation continues to successfully navigate the ever-changing sea of college sports by fostering contraction and expansion of its sports portfolio to meet the dynamic needs of its members. As the MPSF begins its 21st season in 2012-2013 and continues its legacy of championship competition, it affirms the vision of its founders and the relevance of its three founding principles, particularly during today’s tumultuous economic times. In 2012-2013, the MPSF will sponsor competition in 13 intercollegiate Olympic sports, while serving approximately 1,800 student-athletes on 99 teams from 41 universities in 14 western states. All MPSF teams compete at the NCAA Division I level in men’s soccer, men’s and women’s water polo, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, men’s and women’s gymnastics, men’s and women’s swimming, women’s lacrosse and men’s volleyball. MPSF champions are eligible to compete in NCAA Championships with MPSF men’s soccer, men’s and women’s water polo, and men’s volleyball champions earning automatic qualification into NCAA championship events. Joining the Federation for the first time is Houston Baptist Men’s Soccer, Denver Men’s Swimming and Diving, Hawaii Women’s Swimming and Diving and Women’s Indoor Track and Field, USC Women’s Lacrosse, CSU Bakersfield Women’s Water Polo, and Cal Baptist Men’s Volleyball. a Click here for MORE INFORMATION ON THE MPSF

ounded in 1911, LMU celebrated 100 years of history in becoming a premier Catholic university rooted in the Jesuit and Marymount traditions. A new era has begun as LMU begins its second century. And there is no better time to be a Lion than NOW. Our enrollment includes 5,951 undergraduate, 1,968 graduate and 1,315 law school students. Our 142-acre bluff-top campus is located in West Los Angeles and was recently included in “The Best 371 Colleges: 2011 Edition” Princeton Review, 2011. Minutes from the beach, high on the cliffs overlooking Los Angeles, stands Loyola Marymount University’s main campus, where 5,000 students study, live, work and play. With the Pacific Ocean to the west and the city skyline to the east, the LMU campus has unique views of the culture, traditions, and business taking place every day in Southern California. LMU enjoys one of the nation’s most beautiful campuses, combining a hilltop park environment with traditional and contemporary architecture. Sacred Heart Chapel creates a focal point on the Upper Campus with a commanding presence over Sunken Gardens and the Alumni Mall. Modern residence buildings and University Hall on the lower Leavey Campus push the campus toward the horizon.

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.

s n o i p m a h C History of 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 17 titles in 12 years. The current decade includes men’s water polo winning four straight titles and men’s soccer claiming their first in 2010.

n 2011-2012, Loyola Marymount University celebrated its Centennial, bringing to a close its first 100 years on the bluff. Leading the Lions into their second century is Dr. William S. Husak, who is in his 15th year as the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics in 2012-13 (hired in 1998). Since 1998, LMU has seen its most overall success in school history as the Lions have claimed 31 of its overall 44 conference championships (among sports currently sponsored by LMU within NCAA Division I competition) and 40 of its 62 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, including the WCC’s best Federal Graduation Rate. 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. For more on the direction of LMU Athletics: Capital Campaign LionsFund Development - ADC

Hub of Activity

he busiest place per square foot on the campus of Loyola Marymount University is not what one would think. It is not LMU’s on-campus commons area, the Lair, University Hall or the LMU bookstore. It is the LMU Athletics Training Room.

Keith EllIson Asst. AD-Athletics Medicine (310) 338-2874 Sports: Men’s Basketball, Women’s Rowing, Men’s Golf, Cheer

Joe Gonzales Asst. Athletic Trainer (310) 338-2764 Sports: Women’s Basketball, Men’s Soccer, Women’s Tennis

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 student-athletes recovering from injuries that keep them out of competition, appointments with doctors and pre- and postpractice 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.

Steven Cortez Asst. Athletic Trainer (310) 338-5220 Sports: Women’s Volleyball, Baseball, Men’s Crew

Colleen duff Asst. Athletic Trainer (310) 338-2340 Sports: Women’s Soccer, Men’s Tennis, Softball

he newest addition to the family of facilities that are home to LMU Athletics is the Lions Athletic Center. The 16,000-square foot facility is located between Albert Gersten Pavilion and Sullivan Field, and brings much needed space to the more than 450 studentathletes who participate on one of the 22 varsity athletic teams at LMU. The main piece of the building is the new weight training facility. Named by the Chad and Ginni Dreier Family, the weight room is more than 4,000-square feet and is one of the top training facilities in the West Coast Conference. In addition to the weight room, there are locker room facilities for baseball, softball, women’s soccer and men’s soccer. Also within the building is a pair of executive conference rooms and office space for the strength and conditioning coaches and for the athletic facility operations staff. The ADG Fraternity has named the larger of the two conference rooms, which overlooks Sullivan Field. The building also houses the LMU Ticket Office, a new laundry room, and storage facilities.

ince it opened in the fall of 2000 as the home of Loyola Marymount University aquatics, the Burns Recreation and Aquatics Center has become one of the premier facilities for aquatics in the nation. Its resume is impressive. The Burns Center has seen the Lions claim 17 championships, earn 185 wins and has been host to two NCAA championships in just 11 seasons.

The Burns Aquatics Center has helped the men’s and women’s water polo teams claim 16 conference titles and the women’s swim team their first title in 2008. In addition to hosting the two NCAA Men’s Water Polo National Championships in 2002 and 2006, LMU has also hosted four Western Water Polo Association Championships - two for the men (2001, 2005) and two for the women (2003, 2008). The Lions have won three of them, both for the men and then in 2003 for the women. The Burns Recreation Center pool is heated and features an advanced deck-level drainage system. There are separate locker rooms for home and visiting teams, as well as office space and meeting rooms for the LMU aquatics coaching staff. Adjacent to the pool is permanent bleacher seating with a normal capacity for 800 fans. Added to the facility in the fall of 2001 was a state-of-the-art scoreboard. The scoreboard from Colorado Timing Systems features scoring systems for both water polo and swimming, including touch-pad timing for nine swim lanes.

The fully digital system was installed thanks to the donations of Albert Gersten. In addition, a new audio system was installed prior to the start of the 2002 swimming season, and the aquatic center now features a recreational lawn picnic area complete with berm seating.
