Connecticut Lacrosse

George J. Sherman-Family Sports Complex The University of Connecticut lacrosse program plays its home games at the George J. Sherman Family-Sports Complex, a $3.7 million athletic facility located adjacent to Harry A. Gampel Pavilion in the heart of UConn’s main campus in Storrs. The 2007 season marked the first year that the Huskies played all their games on the turf, after years of splitting time at the grass field in Joseph J. Morrone Stadium. A financial gift of more than $650,000 to UConn’s Athletic Development Fund by Lottie K. Sherman of West Hartford helped provide the necessary funding for the project. The entire complex bears the name of Lottie K. Sherman’s husband, George J. Sherman. Opened during the 1995-96 academic year, the George J. Sherman Family Sports Complex features a new Astroturf 12 field and watering system that was installed during the summer of 2008. The new surface gives UConn lacrosse and field hockey programs one of the finest on-campus collegiate facilities in the nation. The complex also includes an eight-lane, 400-meter all-weather track surface, as well as seating for 2,000 fans, full-field lighting to permit night games, a press box and a scoreboard with electronic message capabilities. Before the start of the 2010 season the lacrosse locker room in the Hugh S. Greer Field House was renovated, giving each student-athlete their own locker with enclosed storage spaces.

Hugh S. Greer Mark R. Shenkmen & Field House Training Center Weight Room Thanks to alumnus Mark R. Shenkman, the University of Connecticut has joined the ranks of major universities nationwide with an indoor training facility that is utilized by all the varsity sport teams and also by recreational services. The 85,000 square foot Mark R. Shenkman Training Center is one of the most modern facilities of its kind in the country. Featuring a 120-yard long state-of-the-art FieldTurf playing surface, an 18,000 square foot strength and conditioning area and state-of-the-art video capabilities, the indoor training center provides all the varsity teams with the most technologically advanced training equipment. The UConn lacrosse team has the use of two different weight rooms in Gampel Pavilion along with the Field House Weight Room. All of the facilities feature custom made multi-use racks with platforms, dumbbell racks, cable machines and various Cybex Machines.

HEADStrong Foundation The Huskies were one of 15 teams to raise $42,000 in the 2nd Annual Nick Colleluori Women’s Lacrosse Classic which took place at Hofstra University on September 25, 2010. The tournament helps bring awareness to the HEADStrong Foundation which is committed to finding a cure for all blood cancers and supporting those who are affected by the disease. The foundation is dedicated to its founder Nicholas Colleluori and was started in 2005, with the foundation’s primary color of lime green being used to represent non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Friends Of Jaclyn UConn once again participated in a Friends of Jaclyn event, competing in the FOJ Playday that was held back in October. The Friends of Jaclyn Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable organization that works to improve the life of children suffering from pediatric brain tumors and their families, while also helping raise funds for research.

Huskies In The Community Husky Reach The University of Connecticut lacrosse team strives to consistently make a positive impact off the field and outside of the classroom, contributing to several community organizations. Different community service initiatives that the Huskies participate in throughout the year include Nutmeg Big BrothersBig Sisters, teaching children around Connecticut about lacrosse, and volunteering for Husky Sport, a program to promote physical fitness and good nutrition. As part of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee the lacrosse team also sponsors a variety of collection drives for food, toys and coats to support charities in the local area.

Alumni Reflections Ashley Mitchelides - 2010 “Attending UConn and being a member of the women’s lacrosse team was truly an opportunity that I will always be grateful for. I am thankful for all the experiences I had over the years and have met some truly amazing people. Reflecting on my time at UConn, it is a special and rewarding group to be a part of; one that has left an imprint on me as I move onto the next phase of life. Through thick and thin, my experience was one of constant growth and has prepared me for all to come. The perspective I have now, leaves me even more appreciative of those who supported, encouraged and believed in me at UConn From teammates and coaches to classmates and friends, being a Husky is something I will always cherish!”

Whitney Michele - 2009 “Competing against some of the top teams in the nation, building enduring friendships, being challenged to handle adversity and having the opportunity to be a part of the BIG EAST conference all contributed to making my experience at Connecticut exciting and unforgettable. I was fortunate to learn from and play under head coach Angela McMahon for my last year at UConn. Coach McMahon took over the team and instilled expectations of: conditioning, discipline, dedication, and hard work. I truly believe she will build this program into a top 20 team in a few years.”

Leah Giffin - 2008 “My experience as an athlete at UConn gave me a sense of purpose and a sense of place in Storrs. You feel a sense of pride when you put on that blue and white jersey which represents so much more than yourself. Being a part of the UConn lacrosse family sculpted me into the person I am today. Although I had my ups and downs throughout my lacrosse career, I knew there were always 24 other people who understood me. They know what you have been through and they stand by your side. I now have the opportunity to coach and I strive to get my players to understand the true meaning of the word ‘team.’ I try and teach them what I have learned through my own experiences, that your jersey is much more than a shirt, that the people you play with are much more than teammates, that the hour long battles are much more than games.”

“Being a member of the lacrosse team has, without a doubt, left its mark on me in a lot of remarkable ways, and I consider myself very lucky to have gotten to experience college the way I did for four years. It’s not easy, and I think any athlete will testify to that…but it’s worth it. You get to learn more about yourself and life than you could any other way. And, ultimately, you walk away a much stronger person than when you walked in. You are a member of a team and you get to create friendships in a way that very few other people understand. Your teammates are there at 5 a.m. conditioning, they are there on Friday nights, they are there when the whistle blows…and when all of that ends, you know they would be right there for you if you needed them.

Kristen Haldeman - 2006 “During my time with the UConn lacrosse team, I experienced many different things - the joy that comes with winning big games, the disappointment of a heartbreaking loss or the pain of an injury and hard workouts. Now, looking back, all I feel is the tremendous pride that goes along with being able to say that I played for the University of Connecticut. This program provides so much more than caring coaches, supportive teammates and an opportunity to play at the highest level. These people become your family and I know that I would not be the person I am today had I not met them.”

The BIG EAST Conference The 2011-12 academic year is the 33rd in the history of The BIG EAST Conference as the unique consortium marches on competing at the highest level with integrity and sportsmanship. The BIG EAST has gone through membership changes since its birth, but the 2011-12 year marks the conference’s seventh straight with the same 16-member group, making for the nation’s largest Division I-A conference. The BIG EAST Conference’s goals have always been the same. The outstanding performances of the student-athletes at BIG EAST schools are evidence of the league’s proud tradition of success. The league has always been able to boast that many of its best students are also its best athletes. The 2010-11 year was no different. Seven BIG EAST student-athletes were named NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship winners, while 22 earned Capital One Academic All-America recognition. Maya Moore, Connecticut’s women’s basketball standout, won the NCAA Honda-Broderick Cup as the nation’s top female student-athlete and was chosen as the Capital One Academic All-America of the Year.

Previous BIG EAST Conference Champions

In the athletic arena, BIG EAST student-athletes again enjoyed success on the national stage. The Connecticut men’s basketball team won its third national championship, completing a magical run through five games of the BIG EAST Championship and six wins in the NCAA tournament. The Villanova women’s cross country team won the NCAA title for the second straight year and the ninth time overall. The Notre Dame women’s soccer team won its third NCAA title, while BIG EAST teams reached national championship games in women’s basketball (Notre Dame) and men’s soccer (Louisville).

The BIG EAST placed two teams in the NCAA Women’s Final Four for the second time in the last three years as Connecticut joined Notre Dame in Indianapolis, capping a season in which the Huskies extended their NCAA-record winning streak to 90 games. Individually, BIG EAST student-athletes won five NCAA championships, including an unprecedented four by Villanova’s Sheila Reid. Reid was the 2010 individual cross country champion, a member of the Wildcats’ winning indoor distance medley relay team and won the 5,000- and 1,500-meter titles in outdoor track & field. Louisville’s Matt Hughes, meanwhile, repeated as the NCAA champion in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the NCAA outdoor meet. Moore and Reid joined Notre Dame soccer standout Melissa Henderson as winners of Honda Sports Awards as the top performers in their respective sports. Moore also became the first three-time winner of the Wade Trophy as the nation’s top women’s basketball player and joined Villanova lacrosse player Brian Karalunas as winners of the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award. BIG EAST football maintained its national profile as a competitively balanced group. Connecticut claimed the league’s Bowl Championship Series bid for the first time as the Huskies shared the conference title with Pittsburgh and West Virginia. Six of the league’s eight squads went to bowl games and helped the BIG EAST post a 4-2 bowl record for the second straight year. The BIG EAST became the nation’s largest Division I-A conference in 2005-06 when five new members began competing – the University of Cincinnati, DePaul University, the University of Louisville, Marquette University and the University of South Florida. Since opening its doors in 1979, the league has won 32 national championships in six different sports and 133 student-athletes have won individual national titles through 2010-11. Most recently Georgetown women’s cross country crown in the fall of 2011.

BUILDING A VISION

STORRS CENTER O

n Wednesday, June 29, 2011, the Mansfield Downtown Partnership joined with the Town of Mansfield, the University of Connecticut, and Storrs Center master developer LeylandAlliance, LLC and their partner Education Realty Trust (EDR) in welcoming Mansfield residents and friends in celebrating the ceremonial groundbreaking of Storrs Center. Governor Dannel P. Malloy, United States Congressman Joe Courtney, Secretary of State Denise Merrill, State Senator Don Williams, State Representative Gregory Haddad, Mansfield Mayor Elizabeth Paterson, UConn President Susan Herbst, and Mansfield Downtown Partnership Board President Philip Lodewick addressed the crowd of over three hundred who gathered at the intersection of Dog Lane and Storrs Road (Route 195) in Mansfield. Mansfield resident and current UConn student Spencer Hamlin performed the National Anthem to begin the ceremony. Following remarks from the visiting officials, the ceremonial groundbreaking took place near the site of the first building to be constructed as part of the future downtown. Storrs Center, which has been in planning and development for almost ten years, will be a mixed-use, pedestrian-oriented town center located within an easy walking distance of the UConn Storrs campus, Mansfield’s Town Hall and Community Center, and E. O. Smith High School. The new downtown will host a wide variety of shops, restaurants, offices, and cafés, along with new residential options, including studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. The new, market-rate residential units will appeal to young professionals, empty nesters, faculty, graduate students, and other residents of the area – anyone who desires a quality lifestyle in an upscale town center with all of the social and cultural advantages found near one of the nation’s top universities. Storrs Center has been planned as an environmentally-sensitive and sustainable downtown that combines residential, commercial, civic, and recreational uses within a walkable area. Of the nearly fifty acre site, only about fifteen acres will be developed (twelve acres of which were previously developed). The remaining acreage will be set aside as a conservation area,

which abuts the Whetten Woods, a preserved area held by Joshua’s Tract Conservation and Historic Trust. An intermodal transportation center, adjacent to the new parking garage, will accommodate buses, shared cars, electric cars, and bicycles. Mansfield residents and visitors will have convenient access to many amenities without needing to make multiple car trips. The first phase of Storrs Center, scheduled to open in the fall of 2012, will be located north of Dog Lane, near Buckley residential hall, and will include 127 apartments and 27,000 square feet of commercial space. The second phase, consisting of 160 apartments and 40,000 square feet of commercial space, will be south of Dog Lane and is scheduled to open in fall of 2013. “It is one of the most exciting public/private initiatives in the state,” Governor Malloy remarked during the groundbreaking ceremony. “This project does all the right things: It maximizes the value of the University of Connecticut, puts people to work, and creates a town center to enhance the quality of life around a great university.” For more information, please visit www.storrscenter.com or contact the Mansfield Downtown Partnership at 860-429-2740 or mdp@ mansfieldct.org.
