Team Duhawk

Hello from TEAM DUHAWK! The Department of Athletics is now in the third year with Team Duhawk, and after two years, we continue to be blessed with the support of so many passionate fans and families.

Team Duhawk is the “team behind the teams.” Team Duhawk supports the mission of the Loras College Department of Athletics and provides our student-athletes with the resources they need to succeed in and out of the classroom. With the rising costs of travel and need to remain competitive in the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and the NCAA Division III, your support is needed. Your gift will provide opportunities for all student-athletes to train and compete at the highest levels, while also growing intellectually, spiritually, and personally. The first $25 of your gift will benefit the Team Duhawk General Athletic Fund, which supports all 22 varsity sports, the athletic training department, the spirit squad, and our athletic facilities. Any additional amount may be designated to an area of your choice. Thank you for your past support and for considering joining today! Sincerely, Bob Quinn (’86) Director of Athletics P.S.

IIAC Conference

Chuck Yrigoyen IIAC Commissioner

Founded in 1923 and recognized as one of the top NCAA III leagues in the nation, the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference consists of nine private, liberal arts institutions. The IIAC sponsors 15 intercollegiate championships in men’s and women’s sports. The IIAC has proven to be one of the nation’s most dominant conferences, annually having many of its teams finish highly at the NCAA III national level.

IIAC MISSION STATEMENT

The Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (IIAC) consists of independent, regionally accredited, residential four-year, liberal arts colleges that share common academic philosophies and goals and that place primary emphasis on the academic progress of students. To that end the athletic programs of IIAC member institutions facilitate the intellectual, spiritual and physical development of all students, whether as participants or spectators. Members of the IIAC place highest priority on the overall quality of the educational experience of our student-athletes and their successful completion of it. Therefore, the member colleges seek to provide an environment in which athletic activities are conducted as an integral part of our student-athletes’ educational experience. In that vein, intercollegiate competition is provided by the IIAC to develop participants’ skills in selfdiscipline, teamwork, fair play, sportsmanship and ethical conduct; it is not provided primarily to serve the entertainment needs of spectators nor the talent needs of professional sports teams. Student-athletes in the IIAC should experience growth of physical and mental skills as well as an appreciation for the rewards of adequate preparation and superior performance. They also should learn to work and play with others who are unlike themselves but who are talented and productive persons. They also should experience the pride of representing an organization, not just themselves, and the responsibility of proper conduct that comes with it. But primarily, they should have the opportunity to excel in their academic work as well as in their athletic endeavors; competitive events and practice sessions will be scheduled to minimize the potential conflict between academic and athletic excellence. In sum, athletic competition in the IIAC serves to encourage our students to participate in activities beyond the classroom, to enhance skills helpful to career success, and to assist them in their general development as human beings.

Duhawks ‘Think Pink’ in 2012 For the fifth consecutive season the Duhawk volleyball team dedicated one home game to “Think Pink” and raised awareness and money to fight breast cancer and improve women’s health. On October 16, 2012, Loras once again wore pink uniforms, handed out over three dozen prizes, hosted a 50/50 raffle and invited local health organizations to share their information at a health fair setup on the concourse level of the Athletic and Wellness Center. The 50/50 raffle along with the gate receipts generated hundreds of dollars which was donated to the Maria House, a local women’s shelter, and the Visiting Nurses Association, to help fund mammogram screening for local women in need. Besides successfully promoting women’s health, the Duhawks earned a 3-0 victory over IIAC Conference opponent Buena Vista University 25-14, 25-14, 26-24. Plans are already underway for the October 2013 Breast Cancer Awareness Month game and events.

Welcome to Loras College!

Athletic and Wellness Center

Dear Duhawk Fans, Welcome to the Loras College Athletic Department and the Loras College 2012-2013 Volleyball Media Guide. The entire Loras community is thrilled that you are experiencing Loras College and “Duhawk Nation.” We hope you are able to visit Dubuque, Iowa, so you can experience our historic, beautiful and state-of-the-art facilities firsthand. Please always know that whether you visit for the first time or are able to see us regularly, you are welcomed by our athletic department, faculty and staff and, most importantly, our student body. The Loras College Athletic Department is constantly striving to extend the classroom for all of our student-athletes. Teachable moments occur for our coaches and studentathletes literally hundreds of times a day at practice and games. Traits like strength of character, sportsmanship, a solid work ethic and teamwork are taught and reinforced to produce Loras College alumni who will serve the world with integrity! As members of the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, another department goal is to compete at the highest level in all athletic venues. Our coaches are recruiting not only young men and women of character, but also athletically gifted and talented young people. It is my belief that you will see well-rounded student-athletes who demonstrate both integrity and athletic prowess as Duhawks. In the end, we hope you, like thousands before you, enjoy and experience the tradition and engaging personalities that make us all Duhawks. Thanks for your time and as always…Go Duhawks! Bob Quinn (’86) Director of Athletics
