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.

“Erin has an energetic and enthusiastic personality,” commented AU Head Coach Matt Corkery. “Her ability to connect with our players and potential recruits on a personal level is one of her biggest strengths. Her experience as a collegiate point guard also adds to her credibility as a coach.”

“We are very fortunate to have LaTonya on our coaching staff,” commented AU Head Coach Matt Corkery. “Her experience coaching NCAA Tournament teams and recruiting at the Top 25 level is invaluable. She is a tremendous role model and teacher for our student-athletes.” Prior to arriving at AU, Watson spent two years as a math instructor and head girls basketball coach at Chamblee Charter (Ga.) High School. She led her squad to a 34-18 overall record. Watson’s team was named the DeKalb County AAA Team of the Month in January 2008. Two of her studentathletes obtained college basketball scholarships. Watson also spent a year coaching and teaching at Meadowcreek High School (Ga.) and served as the co-head coach of the Boulder Rockies Girls’ Basketball Club in 2005.

Prior to coming to AU, Lindroth spent four years at Daytona Beach State College as an assistant coach. Her responsibilities included practice and game preparation, academic tutoring and counseling, scouting, recruiting, uniform and travel gear maintenance and travel arrangements. Lindroth also served in a number of roles within the athletics department, including housing coordinator and fitness center specialist. From 1999-2001, Lindroth was a full scholarship player at Wabash Valley Jr. Community College (Ill.), and went on to be a scholarship player and earn her Bachelor of Arts degree in Sports Management from Martin Methodist College (Tenn.) in 2004. She graduated Magna Cum Laude and was an Academic All-American.

Watson is a 1992 graduate of Eastern Michigan University, where she majored in mathematics and minored in English and literature. From 1988-92, she played point guard for EMU. Watson was named to the 1989 Mid American Conference All-Freshman Team, the 1991 All-MAC Honorable Mention Team, and 1992 All-MAC Second Team. She was also a three-time Academic All-Mid America Conference selection. Watson ranks third in assists (446) and is the tenth all-time leading scorer (1,296) in school history. She scored 36 points in a game, which ranks as the second highest single-game output in EMU history. She began her coaching career in 1992 as a graduate assistant at Eastern Michigan. After the 1992-93 season, Watson coached the girls’ volleyball, basketball and track teams at Dunbar Middle School in Fort Worth, Texas. In 1995, she took on the same responsibilities at Dunbar High School.

Blanton also compiled statistics, helped with recruiting paperwork and interacted with student-athletes as a mentor on a daily basis. She also was a staff member at Ohio State and Illinois Summer Camps. From 2003-07, Blanton was a standout on the court for Ohio State. She was a four-year varsity letterwinner and was a part of three Big Ten Conference Championships. The team went 112-22 in Blanton’s four years and made NCAA Tournament appearances each season.

He also spent time over the past years as the manager for the U-19 FIBA World Championship in Bratislava, Slovakia and the FIBA Women’s World League in Yekaterinburg, Russia. He was responsible for team equipment, practice logistics and video scouting, and assisted with player relations. A 2007 graduate from Colorado with degrees in both international affairs and economics, Callan spent seven months as an investment analyst intern at Stategies LLC. “Tom has strong organizational skills and extensive experience through his time spent at Colorado and with USA Basketball that gave him the foundation to excel at running the operations of our program,” commented AU Head Coach Matt Corkery. “He grew up around basketball and already worked with assistant coach LaTonya Watson from their time at Colorado. He has been a vital part of our staff.”

American University Women’s Basketball

2009-10 Season Outlook The American University women’s basketball program enters the 2009-10 campaign with high expectations coming off of the most successful back-to-back seasons in program history. For the first time in school history, the Eagles earned trips to the postseason in each of the last two campaigns with appearances in the WNIT. With a solid nucleus returning over the 2009-10 season, the Eagles have the pieces in place to make a deep run in March.

2008-09 and preseason All-Patriot League pick in 2009-10. She led the team in scoring and rebounding with 14.0 points and 5.5 rebounds per game last campaign.

Head Coach Matt Corkery and his staff begin their second year in Washington, D.C. Last season, Corkery led the Eagles to a 19-12 record, although this isn’t his first experience with success at American. In 2007-08, Corkery was on the bench as the top assistant as the Eagles clinched the Patriot League regular season crown and a WNIT berth.

The Eagles will look to sophomores Ebony Edwards and Lisa Strack, both of whom were named to the All-Patriot League Rookie Team in 2008-09, to continue to develop. Edwards set a single-season school record last season in three-point percentage in her freshman campaign (44.2 percent).

The Eagles return three of their five starters from a season ago, including senior Nicole Ryan, who was named the team’s most valuable player in her record-setting 2008-09 campaign. Ryan, who averaged 11.3 points per game, shot a program-record 87.8 percent from the free throw line (65-74) last season, and currently holds the AU career-record from the charity stripe (82.1 percent). Also returning from last year’s starting lineup is junior forward Michelle Kirk, an All-Patriot League First Team selection in

Junior forward Liz Leer is a presence in the paint, as she set a school-record with 62 block shots a year ago. She averaged 11.1 points and 5.5 rebounds in 2008-09, and looks to have a big season.

Senior Ohemaa Nyanin, junior Ashley Yencho and sophomores Raven Harris and Janelle McDonald will look to play key roles for the Eagles in the 2009-10 season. American welcomes two freshmen to the squad – Stephanie Anya and Geleisa George. The Eagles have been selected to finish second in the Patriot League in the preseason poll, which was voted on by the league’s coaches and sports information directors. The expectations are high for American in 2009-10, and it should be an exciting season in Washington, D.C.

Inducted 1999

Inducted 2005

Beth Shearer Clark played four exceptional years for American University, leaving her mark on each season, where her last happened to be the first in Bender Arena. Upon graduation, Shearer Clark was first in AU’s career scorers’ history, accumulating 1,611 points, a feat that now ranks her second amongst all-time leading scorers. She is currently first in points and scoring average in a season, recording 534 points in her last season as at AU, tallying a 19.1 scoring average. One of the greatest scorers in American’s history, Shearer Clark also was a dominant force on the glass. She pulled down 686 career rebounds in her four years at AU. On the other end of the court, Shearer recorded 218 steals and 63 blocks, placing her sixth in American University history for both categories. Shearer also had a .821 free throw percentage in the 198788 season, ranking third in school history. She ended her four years with a .797 average, an accomplishment that puts her in second all-time. To round out her record, she is fourth in career starts with 100. Beth Shearer Clark was inducted in 1999, alongside former teammate Jody Thorton Powell.

One of AU’s top all-time scorers as she was the first female basketball player to reach the 1,000 point milestone at American University and currently stands eighth on AU’s all-time scoring list with 1,107 points. She averaged 12.7 points per game in her career and registered 72 steals during the 1981-82 season, which was second-best ever at AU at the time. A graduate of American’s College of Public Affairs with a degree in Criminal Justice, she traded in her basketball sneakers for law books at Villanova University School of Law, where she received her Juris Doctorate in 1989. “Sister Smoke,” a nickname given to her by her father’s arch rival, Muhammed Ali, Frazier-Lyde continues to prove the critics that she’s not too old to beat the toughest competitors. She has a career record of 11-1-0 with nine knockouts, but FrazierLyde describes boxing as not about who is better, but more about the performance. In the modern-day rivalry, Laila Ali beat Frazier-Lyde by a majority decision. Ali, however, has since refused to agree to a rematch.

Stafford H. “Pop” Cassell Hall of Fame Jody Thorton Powell ‘87

Jody Thorton Powell, ‘87 Inducted 1999 One of the great passers in AU women’s basketball history was Jody Thornton Powell. In her career from 1983-87, she ranks at the top of the school charts with 693 assists. Instead of being a scorer, she made everyone around her better with her command at the guard position. Her assist numbers each year; she began with 143 her rookie season, 163 in 1984-85, jumped to 193 in her junior year, and had 194 in her senior campaign. In addition to creating scoring opportunities for her teammates, she played a key role on the defensive side of the ball with 244 steals in her career. Thornton Powell started 102 games for her career.

Ethel Smith, ‘31 Inducted 1996 Darci Smith-Wilson ‘84

Darci Smith Wilson, ‘84 Inducted 1996 Darsi Smith Wilson played four outstanding years for AU from 1980-84. As a student-athlete, she had success, scoring 1,164 career points to go along with a 14.4 scoring average. Smith Wilson was also a powerhouse on the glass with 569 career rebounds, which ranks tenth all-time. A versatile player, Smith Wilson was an excellent passer, dishing out 215 assists and, on the defensive end, rejecting 63 shots in her career. A great defender, she also ranks eighth all-time in steals with 198.
