What is a Blue Hen?

University of Delaware’s athletic teams have one of the most unique nicknames in all of college athletics – “The Fightin’ Blue Hens.” It is a name they carry with pride that stretches back over 200 years of history of the state of Delaware. The Blue Hen nickname has been continuously used by all University of Delaware intercollegiate teams since 1911. On December 9, 1775, the Continental Congress resolved that a military battalion was to be raised from the lower three counties along the Delaware River. Thus was born the Delaware Regiment, a group of eight companies representing New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties. The second company was composed of men from Kent County and was under the command of Captain John Caldwell, an avid fan and owner of gamecocks. The militia often amused themselves by staging cock fights with these birds which were of a breed known as the Kent County Blue Hen, having some blue plumage. The renown of these chickens spread rapidly during that time when cock fighting was a popular form of amusement, and the “Blue Hens’ Chickens” quickly developed a reputation for ferocity and fighting success.

Capt. Caldwell’s company likewise acquired a considerable reputation for its own fighting prowess in engagements with the British at Long Island, White Plains, Trenton, and Princeton, and was soon known as “the Blue Hen Chicken” company. One version of the story states that Caldwell’s company rushed into battle screaming “We’re sons of the Blue Hen and we’re game to the end!” Captain Caldwell’s company was part of Col. John Haslet’s first Delaware regiment that formed near the outset of the Revolution in January, 1776, and in August, 1781, remnants of the regiment were still battling at Eutaw Springs, SC. Although often referred to as “The Fighting Delawares,” Haslet’s regiment also won the sobriquet, “The Blue Hen Chickens,” which has become the nickname for all Delawareans. The name was formally adopted by the Delaware General Assembly in April, 1939 when the “Blue Hen Chicken” was named the official state bird. UD’s College of Agricultural Sciences maintains a breeding group of the Blue Hen Chicken on its campus farm. The UD mascot, YoUDee, made his debut in September 1993. YoUDee stands 6-foot, 8-inches tall with a 6-1 wing-span and size 28FF sneakers.

Blue Hen Women’s Golf

Coaching Staff

PATTY POST

joined the Hoyas after serving as the Assistant Golf Professional at Lakewood Country Club in Rockville, Md. for two years (2004-05). At Lakewood, Post ran weekly tournaments, provided lessons, conducted clinics and assisted in the merchandising for the golf shop.

HEAD COACH THIRD SEASON AT UD WISCONSIN ‘99

During that time, Post was also pursuing a professional playing career. From 2003-05, Post played regularly on the Futures Golf Tour, earning exempt status on the tour that is known as the “Gateway to the LPGA.” She had two top-20 finishes in events during the 2003 and 2004 seasons. Her playing resume also includes Runner-up finishes in the Maryland Women’s Open from 2003-05, named Middle Atlantic PGA Women’s Player of the Year in 2002, 2005, 2006,and 2007, named LPGA Northeast Section Teaching and Club Professional Player of the Year in 2007, and was only the second female to qualify for the PGA National Club Professional Championship.

Patty Post begins her third season leading the University of Delaware women’s golf program in the 2013-14 season. During the 2011-12 season, women’s golf became the 23rd varsity sport at the University of Delaware and the first new sport at UD since women’s rowing was added to the fold prior to the 1998-99 season. During the program’s inaugural season in 2011-12, Post helped lead the Blue Hens to top 10 finishes during eight of 10 tournaments on the year. Delaware finished among the top five in three tournaments, including a season-best fourth at The Spider at St. James Invitational. During the 2012-13 campgain, the Blue Hens posted six top-10 finishes on the year, including a fifth place showing at the Colonial Athletic Association Championships. Post (nee Frohna) joined Georgetown University as the women’s golf head coach in 2006 and guided a young program that has become one of the best in the BIG EAST Conference and in the region. In her third year at the helm, during the 2008-09 season, the Hoyas posted eight top-10 finishes in 10 tournaments, including three top-five finishes in the Spring. Those finishes were highlighted by a team third place finish at the Big East Championships and a win at the NIU Snowbird Intercollegiate, the third team win in program history. She was named LPGA Northeast Section Coach of the Year 2009.

Prior to that, she spent two years (2003-04) at Admiral’s Cove Golf Club in Jupiter, Fla. and was the Teaching Professional at Fair Oaks Golf Park in Fairfax, Va. from 2001-05.

A 1999 kinesiology and zoology graduate of the University of Wisconsin, Post enjoyed a stellar amateur career. She was the Wisconsin Amateur Champion in 1998 and was named the most valuable player on the Wisconsin team in 1997 and 1999. Post won the 1999 Notre Dame Invitational and also earned CoSIDA Academic All-American honors during her career. Post and her husband, Brendon, himself an accomplished golfer who served as Patty’s assistant coach at Georgetown and now at Delaware, have two daughters, Miranda (3), and Kiera (2), and a son, Landon, who was born June 24, 2013.

Post is a Class A PGA Professional, certified Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Level 3 Golf Professional, and a TPI Level 2 Junior Instructor.

Post guided the Hoyas to a fourth place finish at the 2007 BIG EAST Championship and to four top-five finishes and four top-10 finishes during her first season at the helm of the program. In addition to her leadership of the team on the links, Post herself enjoyed a solid season of play. She played in the LPGA’s Sybase Classic in May 2008, qualified for the LPGA Championship in June, 2010 and capped off her year by playing in the 40th PGA Professional National Championship.

Blue Hen Women’s Golf With nearly three decades of success athletically and academically, the Colonial Athletic Association has built a reputation as one of the nation’s top collegiate conferences. The CAA encompasses many of the nation’s largest metropolitan areas with a geographic footprint that stretches from Boston to Charleston, S.C. The conference has produced 16 national team champions in five different sports, 33 individual national champions, 13 national players of the year, 12 national coaches of the year and 13 Honda Award winners. Just as impressive, however, are the honors accumulated away from competition, which include five Rhodes Scholars and 23 NCAA post-graduate scholars. In 2012-13, more than 1,900 of the league’s 4,000 student-athletes received the Commissioner’s Academic Award after posting at least a 3.2 grade point average while lettering in a varsity sport. The conference had 23 teams in 15 different sports receive NCAA Public Recognition Awards based on the latest Academic Progress Report released in 2013. The landscape of the conference stretches along the majority of the East Coast, and includes several of the nation’s top media markets – New York (1), Philadelphia (4), Boston (7), Washington, D.C. (9) and Baltimore (25). The number of television homes in the CAA market exceeds 20 million. The CAA conducts championships in 22 sports. Male athletes compete for championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis and track & field. Female athletes battle for conference titles in basketball, cross country, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and volleyball. In 2012-13, 27 teams earned NCAA Tournament berths and 43 student-athletes received All-America honors in 14 different sports. The conference has made its presence known nationally in men’s basketball with two teams – George Mason (2006) and VCU (2011) – advancing to the NCAA Final Four over the past seven years. CAA teams have combined to win 41 games in CAA Commissioner postseason play since 2006, including 14 victories in the NCAA Tournament. The CAA has posted at least one NCAA Tournament Tom Yeager win in six of the past eight years, including the last four in a row. The conference has seen five or more teams reach postseason play in four of the last five seasons. In women’s basketball, 2013 CAA champion Delaware defeated West Virginia and North Carolina to become the 12th CAA team to reach the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. Behind the play of Honda Award winner Elena Delle Donne, the Blue Hens finished the season ranked #13 in the final USA Today Coaches Top 25 poll. Drexel captured the WNIT championship with a 46-43 victory over Utah and James Madison reached the quarterfinals of the WNIT. CAA teams have gone 20-9 in postseason play over the past two years. The conference also excels in many other sports. CAA squads have combined to win 10 field hockey national titles since the championship began in 1981. Three men’s soccer teams earned NCAA Tournament berths last season and each current member of the conference has reached the NCAA Tournament since 2006. In softball, Hofstra reached the NCAA Super Regionals in 2012 and the CAA placed two teams (Hofstra and James Madison) in the NCAA’s for the first time last season. At least two women’s soccer teams have reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament three times in the past six seasons. William & Mary’s men’s cross country squad has made the NCAA Championship in 12 of the past 14 years and the women’s team had two runners (Elaina Balouris and Emily Stites) earn All-America honors in 2012. Delaware and Towson have each reached the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship. The CAA sent three teams to the NCAA Baseball Championship in 2013 and has had at least 11 players selected in nine of the last 11 Major League Baseball drafts. The conference also had individuals earn All-America honors in women’s lacrosse, track and field and swimming & diving last season and had players nationally ranked in tennis and golf. CAA member institutions are committed to excellence in the classroom. The Colonial Academic Alliance was created in 2002 by the league’s presidents with a goal of expanding their partnership to all aspects of university education and life outside of intercollegiate athletics. Among the programs that have been established are an undergraduate research conference, coordination of study abroad programs, visiting faculty programs and a recent partnership with NBC Learn to provide educational videos to over 8,500 public schools across the United States. CAA schools are also very active in community service projects. The CAA Blood Challenge, which is held each fall, has raised more than 36,000 units of blood over the past 11 years. The first-ever CAA Food Drive Challenge last winter resulted in over 9,500 pounds of donated food. 14

Tim McDonnell Commissioner Thomas E. Yeager has guided the CAA since its inception. The conference traces its roots back to 1983 when two of its current members- James Madison University and the College of William and Mary - were aligned with East Carolina University, George Mason University, the United States Naval Academy and the University of Richmond as a basketball league (ECAC South). During the next two years, the league added 11 sports, acquired two new members (the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and American University) and decided to form a new conference. The transformation from ECAC South to CAA took place on June 6, 1985. Old Dominion University joined the CAA in 1991 and was followed by Virginia Commonwealth University in 1995. The conference added the University of Delaware, Drexel University, Hofstra University and Towson University in 2001. Georgia State University and Northeastern University became members of the conference in 2005 and the College of Charleston began its first year as a CAA member on July 1, 2013. Elon University will join the conference beginning in 2014-15.

UD has graduated 12 Rhodes scholars since the celebrated program began in 1904. Our most recent Rhodes scholar—2011 graduate Matthew Watters—is now studying global health science at Oxford. UD also produces numerous Marshall and Truman scholars, and has been named a Truman Scholarship Honor Institution for its outstanding record of Truman scholars selected.

Many of UD’s doctoral programs were ranked among the best in the U.S. in a recent National Research Council survey that examined criteria such as student financial support, average time to degree completion, student career plans and diversity of the academic environment. UD graduate programs in physical therapy, engineering, education, business, city management, mathematics and public affairs have been recognized in recent Best Graduate Schools guides published by U.S. News Media Group.

A citation in the Princeton Review once referred to the UD campus as “absolutely the most gorgeous anywhere,” and a 2007 Washington Post story noted, “with its elegant, elongated Green, [UD] is a stunning landscape of Georgian Colonial red-brick, white-columned architecture to rival anything conceived by Thomas Jefferson.”
