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 traditional-style 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-and-greet 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.

GOLDBERG

Head Coach • 24th Season • Pittsburgh ‘84 • 568-214 Barry Goldberg, the coach who has built a Patriot League dynasty by winning the league championship 10 of the last 11 years, didn’t begin his volleyball career with a bang. He was cut from his team as a freshman both in high school and as a player at the University of Pittsburgh and before his senior season the program was dropped entirely by the Athletics Department. Luckily for American, Goldberg has always thrived on challenges.

women’s varsity team.

The four-time Patriot League and three-time Colonial Athletic Association Coach of the Year’s record speaks for itself:

In 2010 he led the team to a perfect 14-0 record in the Patriot League, and a 29-3 overall record, earning him his third Coach of the Year honor. The Eagles held a 2-1 lead over No. 9 UCLA during their 11th NCAA tournament match, but couldn’t hold on to the lead and fell 3-2 to the Bruins. All of Goldberg’s seniors earned awards during the season, with Angelina Waterman being named to the AVCA All-Region Team and Magdalena Tekiel earning Patriot League Player of the Year honors.

• 147-7 Patriot League record over 11 years • 568 career wins • .726 career winning percentage • 12 NCAA Tournaments in the last 15 years • Conference championships in 13 of the last 15 years Indeed, in the past 11 years of league play, the Eagles have lost only seven matches. Yet the man who has come to epitomize American volleyball was not recruited as a player out of Peabody High School in Pittsburgh, Pa. In college, he joined the team at Pitt as a walk-on, and after getting cut as a freshman, he thought his playing days were over. But a call from the coach, inviting him to join the team as its 10th man, brought him back to the court. Goldberg worked hard in practice but rode the bench until the season was nearly over. Then he got his chance. Faced with player absences because of final exams, Goldberg’s coach had no choice. He was forced to use the 10th man. Goldberg outplayed the other starters and earned a spot on the team. From then on he started at middle blocker for the Panthers. His junior year, the team he captained was ranked No. 13 in the nation. As it turned out, though, 13 was an unlucky number: At the end of the season, Pitt cut the varsity men’s volleyball program. Undeterred, as a senior Goldberg worked as a player/coach for the club team. After graduating from Pitt with a BA in communication and rhetoric, and while pursuing his master’s in counseling education, he became assistant coach for the Pitt

16

A History of Success The same determination that drove him to persevere at Pitt continues today. The 2011 season saw Goldberg take a team with just three returning players to its 10th conference championship and 12th NCAA Tournament appearance. He led the team to a 13-1 record in the Patriot League and a 2311 overall record, earning him his second straight Coach of the Year award. Freshman Sara Rishell was just the second player in Patriot League history to be named the Player and Rookie of the Year in the same season, also being recognized as an AVCA All-Region Honorable Mention.

During the 2008 season, Goldberg led the Eagles to their eighth-consecutive Patriot League Championship and finished the year with a 24-9 overall record, 13-1 in conference play, and a 12-1 mark at home. American’s performance was so impressive throughout the year that the team was honored with four PL major awards. Senior Rubena Sukaj ‘09 was named the Player of the Year for the third straight season while classmate Christina Nash ‘09 earned her second Setter of the Year honor, junior Ivana Cebakova ‘09 was named Defensive Player of the Year for the second time and freshman Rebecca Heath garnered Rookie of the Year plaudits. In 2006, Goldberg coached his way to a second Patriot League Coach of the Year award and his team won its sixth-consecutive league regular season and tournament titles. Despite being a young squad, with just one senior and three juniors, the Eagles were heavy on talent and determination. Led by Sukaj, American recorded a 14-1 record at home in Bender Arena and a 14-0 record against conference opponents. The

Eagles played so masterfully during the second half of the season that none of their opponents could manage to win more than one set in any match, a record that stood until they fell to top-ranked Nebraska, 3-1, in the NCAA Tournament. Because his teams have achieved so much since his arrival, it’s hard to remember what American volleyball was like before Goldberg. Since the day he came on as coach in 1989, the Eagles have accumulated a 233-43 (.844) record in Bender Arena. He has produced 41 All-Patriot League selections in 10 years and 16 PL Player of the Year recipients. Throughout the years his players have excelled both on and off the court. Since 1995, Goldberg’s teams have averaged a 3.33 combined grade point average per semester. American volleyball has had five Academic All-America selections, including most notably Karla Kucerkova’s selection as the 2002 and 2003 CoSIDA Academic Volleyball Player of the Year. In 2003, American graduate Natalie Hand was awarded a prestigous Marshall Scholarship, which pays for American students to study in Great Britain. 97 Eagles have earned an in-season GPA above 3.2 and been named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll in the team’s 11 years in the conference. In 12 seasons in the Colonial Athletic Association, before American joined the Patriot League, Goldberg coached 36 players to AllCAA teams, including 20 All-CAA First Team selections, two CAA Tournament MVP accolades, and a CAA Rookie of the Year winner. Goldberg has also coached three American University StudentAthletes of the Year and seven District II Academic All-Americans.

A look back at the Goldberg era of American volleyball shows the same pattern of consistent success: • In 2004, the Goldberg-led Eagles compiled a 24-7 overall record while staying undefeated in league competition. The Eagles made their fourth straight NCAA Tournament appearance, and junior Cutrina Biddulph ‘06 was named the Patriot League Co-Player of the Year and Honorable Mention All-America. Freshman Chelsa Brooks ‘08 was named the league’s Rookie of the Year. In addition,

American University Volleyball American was the best represented school on the All-Patriot League Team with six athletes selected. • From 2001 to 2003, Karla Kucerkova ‘04 earned three straight Patriot League Player of the Year and Scholar-Athlete of the Year awards. Nationally, she was named Academic All-America Player of the Year twice. The team’s success was almost as brilliant, with victories in 48 straight league matches and trips to three straight NCAA Tournaments. • In 2000, American competed in its final season in the Colonial Athletic Association before moving to the Patriot League in 2001. Although the switch made the team ineligible for the NCAA Tournament, the Eagles finished 26-4 and had an 11-1 conference record. In its final season in the CAA, the team received many honors, including Goldberg’s third CAA Coach of the Year award. Ajola Berisha ‘01, the CAA Player of the Year, was selected as an AVCA Regional All-American, and Judit Szekelyhidi ‘01 joined her on the CAA First Team. • In 1999 the Eagles faced six NCAA Championship participants en route to a then American record .288 hitting percentage, placing the Eagles among the top-10 hitting teams in the country. American garnered five postseason awards on its way to a third consecutive CAA Championship match appearance and finished the season ranked regionally for the fourth time in the previous five seasons. The Eagles finished the regular season with a 14-match win streak and posted a school-record 14-1 CAA mark. • In 1997 the Eagles went 30-4, earning the school’s first NCAA Tournament berth. • The 1994 season, when the Eagles compiled a 34-8 record that included an unprecedented 23-match winning streak, saw the team’s first postseason competition, at the National Invitational Volleyball Championship. While in Kansas City, American commanded national attention by winning two of its four matches.

The Road to the Top Such accomplishments would have seemed unlikely, to say the least, when Goldberg graduated from Pitt. He traveled next to Washington, where he coached the Capital Junior Volleyball Club in the District of Columbia and led the Under-18 team to a top-20 finish at the Junior National Championships. All 10 of the players he coached that year went on to receive NCAA Division I scholarships. Seeing his success at that level, Georgetown University hired him as an assistant, where he coached until joining American University to take its program to the next level. Along the way to the top, Goldberg has worked with several prestigious volleyball camps and committees. In 1997, he was the United States representative, along with the Tampa Bay Juniors Volleyball Club, at a four-nation international camp in Europe. Elite junior national teams from Switzerland, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic hosted the camp. During his summers, Goldberg conducts individual and team volleyball camps at American and other locations in the MidAtlantic region. He has also held seminars in the National Mizuno Coaching Clinic Series. Goldberg now serves as a voting member of the national AVCA/USA Today Top-25 Coaches Poll and is also a voting member of the All-American committee. Goldberg lives in Maryland with his wife, Bonnie. The two have three children, Arielle (22), who played volleyball at the University of the Pacific, Jared (20), who plays volleyball at Grand Canyon University, and Mitchell (17), who is a senior in high school.

2012 Season Outlook The American University volleyball team was chosen first in the 2012 Patriot League Preseason Poll, placing the Eagles atop the poll for the 11th time in 12 seasons. “We are honored that our peers in the Patriot League have chosen us as preseason favorites,” Head Coach Barry Goldberg said. “However, we certainly know that much is to be determined every year that we compete and no season is ever as easy as a poll that predicts who the winner will be.” American captured its 10th Patriot League Championship in 11 years during the 2011 season, advancing to the NCAA Tournament for the 12th time in 15 years. The Eagles posted an overall record of 23-11 with a 13-1 mark in the Patriot League.

Juliana Crum ‘14 First Team All-Patriot League

The Eagles return 12 players from last year’s squad including redshirt senior Rebecca Heath and 2011 Patriot League Player and Rookie of the Year Sara Rishell. Heath bounced back from two injuryplagued seasons after being named the Patriot League Rookie of the Year in 2008 and was named to the All-Patriot League Second Team. She recorded 10 double-doubles on the year and ranked third on the team with 2.59 kps. Rishell became just the second player in conference history to be named the Player and Rookie of the Year in the same season and was ranked second in the Patriot League with a .316 hitting percentage on the year. She was also named the 2012 Patriot League Preseason Player of the Year.

Rebecca Heath ‘12 2012 Patriot League Scholar-Athlete of the Year

American also returns All-Patriot League selections Juliana Crum and Monika Smidova. Crum was named to the First Team in 2011 and finished the year averaging a team-best 2.64 dps. Smidova tallied a team-high 47 service aces during the season and ranked second on the team with 5.67 aps.

American’s roster will be bolstered by the addition of six new faces in 2012. The recruiting class includes freshmen Allison Cappellino (OH/L), Sarah Katz (RS), Kristyna Lindovska (RS) and Teodora Peric (S) and transfers Kylann Scheidt (S) and Jessica Warner (DS).
