Washington, D.C. The National Mall is usually the center of every visitor’s trip to Washington DC. This tree-lined area of parkland stretches two and a half miles from the Potomac River to the United States Capitol on Capitol Hill and is adjoined by the White House. At one end of the National Mall, known as West Potomac Park, the Lincoln Memorial faces the Reflecting Pool with a good view of Arlington Memorial Bridge, Constitution Gardens, the Tidal Basin and the Washington Monument. Further towards Capitol Hill are a number of museums and galleries, among which are many of the Smithsonian Institution’s museums, including the National Museum of Natural History, the National Air and Space Museum, National Museum of the American Indian, and the Smithsonian Institution building.

American University Situated within the northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C., American University’s traditionalstyle campus has much to offer students in the way of comfort, modern conveniences, and quick, easy access to city life. Our 84-acre, tree-lined campus, which was designated as a National Arboretum, is located at the top of Embassy Row in one of the most attractive, safe, and residential areas of our nation’s capital. The center of campus, also referred to as “the quad,” is a focal point of student life not only because our academic buildings line its grassy borders, but also because it’s a place to meet-andgreet with friends and student groups, catch an impromptu game of ultimate frisbee or take part in an after-class debrief with professors. Another favorite spot on campus is the beach volleyball pit located between the athletics fields. The adjacent grassy hillside is also a well known hangout for students on game days.

Academic Support The academic support program for student-athletes, a collaboration between the Academic Support Center and the Department of Athletics, assists studentathletes in successfully attaining academic goals and creating a balance between academics and athletics. The program serves to promote responsibility and initiative while encouraging studentathletes to take advantage of the rich resources offered at American University. Academic counselors work with student-athletes on skills needed for success in the classroom, and provide information about educational options, university and NCAA requirements, as well as policies and procedures. The program focuses on the development of the total person through individual meetings, study hall and tutoring, and life skills workshops. AU’s academic support program coordinates with faculty, advisors, and coaches to support each student-athlete.

American University Wrestling mark

CODY

Head Coach • 9th Season • Bellevue ‘87 Head Coach Mark Cody is the man behind the American University Wrestling team’s rise to national prominence. In just eight years of coaching, Cody has rebuilt a program that was on the brink of elimination from collegiate athletics into a team producing both athletic and academic All-Americans, EIWA Champions, and the program’s first ever National Champion. During the 2009-10 season, Cody led five Eagles to the NCAA Championships where a program-record three earned All-America status. Seniors Kyle Borshoff and Mike Cannon and junior Steve Fittery were the three All-America honorees and helped the Eagles tie for the seventh most honors at the NCAA Championships. American recorded 38.5 points at Nationals to finish 14th, also setting a program record. Since 2005, the Eagles have sent 11 student-athletes to the NCAA podium and rank second in the EIWA for the most AllAmerica honors. Also last season, Cody’s Eagles earned the second highest GPA in Division I wrestling with a combined 3.296 GPA while Cannon, Jasen Borshoff, and Fittery were named NWCA Academic All-Americans. American is the only team to earn NWCA All-Academic Team honors and finish in the top-30 at the NCAA Championships each of the last five years. Cody led three Eagles to the 2009 NCAA Championships where Cannon and K. Borshoff earned All-America status. As a team, American finished in 29th place at nationals, sixth at the EIWA Championships and eighth at the Midlands Championships. The Eagles were also named the NWCA Champions of the Classroom for the secondhaving consecutive year, attained the highest team GPA in all Div. I wrestling with a combined 3.28 GPA while Cannon and Andrew Silber

were named NWCA Academic All-Americans. American’s dual meet record of 11-5 from the 2008-09 season marked its best record since the 2005-06 campaign. Cody’s Eagles earned their first NWCA Champions of the Classroom honor during the 2007-08 season. Jasen Borshoff, Cannon, Josh Glenn and Christopher Stout were each named NWCA Academic All-Americans, marking the most individual Academic All-America honors American had ever received in a single year. The Eagles also excelled on the mat, sending all four Academic All-American’s to the NCAA Championships where Cannon and Glenn both earned All-America status. Cannon became just the second underclassmen in American history to earn All-America status with a sixth-place finish at 165 lbs. and Glenn earned the distinction for the third straight year with a fifth-place showing at 197 lbs. During the 2006-07 season, Cody’s team reached an unparalleled high as Glenn repeated as the EIWA Champion at 197 lbs. and swept through the NCAA Championships as the No. 2 seed. He went 5-0 and earned a 6-4 overtime decision over No. 1 Kurt Backes of Iowa to capture American’s first National Championship. He was joined by Cannon and K. Borshoff and sophomore Rudy Rueda at the tournament, marking American’s largest showing and tying its thenbest finish of 17th. At the EIWA Tournament, the squad tied for sixth and put two wrestlers in the finals, Glenn and Cannon. The squad also included two Academic All-Americans, Damian Swietlik and Cannon, and was awarded the Sportsmanship Award at the EIWA Tournament. Cody’s efforts first paid off in the 200506 season when two Eagles were recognized with AllAmerica honors.

Nine were also named to the Academic All-Big 12 team. Before joining Oklahoma State, Cody served as the upperweights coach for 12 years at the University of Nebraska. During his time in Lincoln, he was responsible for bringing in some of the nation’s best recruiting classes, including two National Champions, 1995 heavyweight champion Tolly Thompson and 2000 197 lbs. champion Brad Vering. Vering later became a two-time Olympian with Cody in his corner at the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Trials when he qualified for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. While at Nebraska, 23 Cornhuskers were named All-America. to earn honors with his fourth-place finish at 184 lbs. The pair’s performances coupled with Adam LoPiccolo’s one win by fall earned the team a 17th-place finish. At the EIWA Championships, Abdurakhmanov was named Most Outstanding Wrestler as he and Glenn each won individual titles. In the classroom, Abdurakhmanov and Matt Morkel earned NWCA Academic All-America honors and the team earned the NWCA Team Academic All-America Award. In addition, the Eagles won 13 of their 19 dual matches and placed three wrestlers in the top-10 during the year. In the 2004-05 season, American earned its first ever AllAmerican award when senior Daniel Waters placed eighth at the NCAA Championships. Joining Waters at the NCAA Championships that year was a then school-record three teammates, including American first-ever EIWA champion, fourth-ranked Abdurakhmanov. The 2004 EIWA Freshman of the Year and runner-up at 184 lbs., Glenn, and heavyweight LoPiccolo also qualified for the big stage by way of their high placings at EIWAs. As a team the Eagles had their highest finish at EIWAs, placing sixth out of 13 teams. A year earlier, Cody led a team which continued to show improvement. Waters recorded the most wins in Division I that year, with a 32-5 overall record. Senior Jared Hyman finished his season with 24 wins, winning 10 of 11 dual meet matches.

Cody spent the 1986-87 season as an assistant coach at Oklahoma State.

As a student-athlete, Cody was a three-time All-American. He spent two years at the State University of New York at Delhi before transferring to Missouri in 1983. His greatest success came during his senior season, 1984-85, when he earned All-America status and was named the team’s Most Outstanding Wrestler. Cody still ranks in Missouri’s single season top-10 for falls (17) and winning percentage (.875). He graduated from Bellevue University with a Bachelor of Science degree in business. A member of the New York Athletic Club, he was a 198 lbs. finalist at the 1988 U.S. Olympic Trials.

Dr. Robert Karch

Inducted 2007

Charles “Fritz” Maier was a fouryear member of the American University wrestling team and one of the most skilled grapplers of his day.

Vidvuds “Vince” Celtnieks graduated from American University in 1965 as one of the most well rounded athletes to have ever graced the AU playing surfaces.

Dr. Robert Karch headed American University’s wrestling program for 10 seasons, between 1968 and 1979. In his first season as coach, he led a team that had won just one dual match in the previous four seasons to four dual match wins. In the decade which Karch served as the program’s mentor, he amassed more than 70 dual match wins and coached 17 conference place-winners, a conference champion and several first-place or second-place finishes at invitational tournaments. No slouch on the mat himself, Karch won three Atlantic Coast Conference Championships while wrestling for the University of Maryland.

In the late ‘50’s and early ‘60’s, Maier consistently outmatched his opponents on the mat and became a four-time Mason Dixon champion. As a freshman, Maier won his first championship in the 157 lbs. weight class. In his sopohomore season Maier moved up to 167 lbs. where he proceeded to win three more titles. Maier was also a key member of the 195960 squad which went 8-0 in dual meets and produced American’s only Mason Dixon Team Championship.

In his four years as an Eagle, Celtnieks earned varsity letters in wrestling, cross country, track and soccer. As a wrestler Celtnieks was coached by both Frank Morgan, who guided American to the Mason Dixon Team Championshipin 1960, and Isidore Abrams. On the soccer pitch, Celtnieks was a member of the 1964 team which snapped a streak of four consecutive years with a loosing record. As a cross country and track athlete Celtnieks was a teammate to future NCAA Champions Peter Chen and Andrew “Butch” Bell.

2-Time Champions of the Classroom

In 1979, Karch stepped down as the wrestling coach to develop AU’s Master of Science program in Health and Fitness Management, which he continues to direct. He has served the Athletics Department for the last several years as the Faculty Athletic representative.
