First Year of Studies The First Year of Studies program provides all first-year students with the opportunity to gain a wide-ranging liberal arts background before choosing a specific major within Notre Dame’s five undergraduate colleges. A progressive advising program for all student-athletes enables the University to follow the academic progress of all student-athletes on a regular basis. Key to the program is the fact that it is not run by the athletics department but by the University administration. Student-Athlete Success Notre Dame expects the best out of its student-athletes just as it does of every other student on campus. Notre Dame has had unprecedented academic success among its athletes, consistently ranking among the top NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision schools in graduation rates and academic progress. With more Academic All-Americans than any other school since 2000, Irish athletes have shown themselves capable of performing in the classroom while competing on the field at an elite level.

THIS IS NOTRE DAME

The University of Notre Dame When Father Edward F. Sorin started his school in the northern Indiana wilderness, he had only $300, three log buildings badly in need of repair and a far-sighted vision of establishing a liberal arts school to meet the growing educational needs of the frontier. He dreamed of building a great university, and in 1842, he founded the University of Notre Dame du Lac. Over the years, the University of Notre Dame du Lac would evolve into a preeminent place for Catholic thought. While becoming one of the top undergraduate institutions in the country, Notre Dame has also been at the cutting edge of research, including such innovations as the transmission of wireless messages and the development of synthetic rubber. The University also has stressed residential life, with four of five students living on campus. Students come to Notre Dame not only to learn how to think, but to learn how to live, keeping faith with the vision of Father Sorin.

Glossary Academic All-Americans – The 2006-07 season proved to be a banner one, both on the fields of competition and in the classroom, for the Notre Dame track and field/cross country program. The Irish had four student-athletes earn ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic AllAmerica honors, led by middle distance runner Thomas Chamney, who was a first-team selection in 2007 after picking up third-team plaudits in ’06. Chamney became the fifth Irish track and field athlete to be tabbed a two-time Academic AllAmerican and the fourth to earn first-team honors. The three-time All-American on the track earned a bachelor’s degree from the College of Arts and Letters in 2007, graduating with a 3.56 cumulative grade point average in English. Joining Chamney as 2007 Academic AllAmericans were sprinter Maryann Erigha and distance harriers Sunni Olding and Todd Ptacek. The honors were the first for each athlete. Erigha was also awarded an Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Scholar Award (first team) along with fellow sprinter Okechi Ogbuokiri (fourth team), and was a recipient of Notre Dame’s Byron V. Kanaley Award for exemplary scholarship and leadership among senior monogram winners. Through the years, the Notre Dame track and field/cross country program has produced 21 student-athletes who have been awarded a place on the ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic AllAmerica Team a total of 27 times. The program has been especially strong the past five seasons, as 10 athletes have combined to garner 13 Academic All-America certificates, including five first-team berths. Distance runner Patrick Smyth continued the tradition in 2009, earning firstteam Academic All-America honors.

The Irish men’s track and field team is on a streak of 19 years (1990-2009) with at least one competitor earning All-America honors (the Irish have amassed 167 All-America honors since 1921). The Notre Dame women’s track and field team has enjoyed at least one All-America performance each season since 1997 (12-year streak) and 42 overall since 1994.

A native of Glen Ellyn, Ill., Deeter earned All-America status twice for cross country in 1996 and 1998 and three times in track and field, all in 1999. Included in her accomplishments were two then-school records - the indoor and outdoor 3,000 and the 10,000. Fifth – One-fifth of a mile (approx. 320 meters) is the length of the Meyo Track, the largest collegiate indoor surface in the country and the home track for the Irish indoor teams. First opened in 1988, the track was named for Ray and Marie Meyo of Brecksville, Ohio, and is made of the Mondo track surface featuring six 42-inch lanes. The Meyo Track has established itself as one of the fastest surfaces in the nation and welcomes a number of high-class athletes in a “last chance” meet (the Alex Wilson Invitational) who are attempting to qualify for the NCAA Indoor Championship. The Meyo Invitational, which features the “Meyo Mile” (a special race that features many of the top milers in the nation) and the Alex Wilson Invitational are fixtures on the Notre Dame indoor track and field schedule each season. Football Players – The Notre Dame football and track and field programs are two of the oldest varsity sports on the Irish campus. There have been a number of football stars who have crossed over to the track, or the field, and left an impres-

sion on the track and field program. Just a glance at the Notre Dame track and field record book shows the effect that football players have had on it. Raghib “Rocket” Ismail, who finished second in the Heisman Trophy balloting in 1990, holds the school record for the indoor 55 meters and finished as an All-American in 1991. Former Irish defensive back Allen Rossum currently holds the school record in the indoor 60 meters (6.68), former running back Randy Kinder set the indoor 200-meter record in 21.11, former receiver Ryan Postel owns the indoor 400-meter record (47.01) and former halfback Aubrey Lewis holds the top mark in the 400-meter hurdles (50.2). Some football players who also earned monograms on the track include 1987 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Brown, Jack Elder, Edward “Moose”

Krause, Elmer Layden, Dean Lytle, Ryan Mihalko (the school-record holder in the javelin), Dwight Ellick, Terrail Lambert, Creighton Miller and Knute Rockne. Ghana – The impact of Notre Dame track can be felt around the world as evidenced by William P. Mahoney, an Irish alumnus who served as the U.S. ambassador to Ghana under the Kennedy Administration. A sprinter for coach John Nicholson, Mahoney took over the coaching duties when Nicholson died in 1940. Mahoney guided the team to an unofficial victory in the Drake Relays before he entered the Navy in 1942. Golden Anniversary – The 2005 season marked the 50th running of the Notre Dame Invitational cross country meet, one of the nation’s oldest and largest intercollegiate races. The invitational was started by former Irish head coach Alex Wilson in 1956 as a four-mile race, extended to five miles in 1968 and a women’s competition added in 1987. Heisman – Achieving success on both the track and the football field was the trademark of former Irish runners Tim Brown and Raghib “Rocket” Ismail. Brown won the 1987 Heisman Trophy in addition to running with the track team during the offseason. Brown owned the school record in the 55 meters until 1990 when ‘90 Heisman runner-up Ismail ran 6.07 in the event, and eventually went on to earn track All-America honors by finishing second in the 1991 NCAA indoor 55 meters.

programs. The Loftus Center is connected to the Guglielmino Athletics Complex, which features the 25,000-square foot Haggar Fitness Center, a facility holding more than 250 pieces of weight training equipment, six plasma televisions and a state-of-the-art sound system. It also houses the 150-seat Isban Auditorium as well as plentiful meeting space.

John P. Nicholson was one of track and field’s greatest innovators in the late 20’s and early 30’s. Here he is pictured with Irish distance great Greg Rice, plotting out the All-American’s next race.

Hurd – Dr. Bill Hurd was honored in 2002 at the annual Notre Dame Monogram Club dinner with the Moose Krause Distinguished Service Award, the highest honor presented by the Monogram Club. A world-class sprinter and 1969 Notre Dame graduate with a degree in electrical engineering, Hurd now is a noted eye surgeon, with an ophthalmology practice in Memphis that specializes in cataract, glaucoma and diabetic treatment and keratorefractive surgery. Hurd annually spends 2-3 weeks providing voluntary eye surgery to the poor in Africa, Mexico and Brazil. On one trip to Madagascar, he and two other doctors saw 1,100 patients in 10 days and he performed 35 eye surgeries – with Hurd and his colleagues increasingly in demand as their reputation grows. Hurd’s days of distinction as a collegian included being named Notre Dame’s “athlete of the year” for 1967-68 and establishing the American indoor record in the 300-yard dash (29.8). He set eight Notre Dame records and totaled five All-America finishes at the 1968 and ‘69 NCAA meets. He also was a finalist (top eight) at the Olympic Trials in the 100 and 200 meters, finishing fifth in the 100 to just miss a spot on the Olympic squad (his competitors included the likes of Jim Hines, John Carlos, Tommy Smith and Mel Gray). Hurd, who added graduate degrees from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (master’s in management science) and Meaharry Medical School in Nashville, was a Rhodes Scholarship regional finalist and received Notre Dame’s Harvey Foster Award in 1992 (recognizing alumni for distinguished civic activity) and the NCAA’s prestigious Silver Anniversary Award in 1994 (recognizing career success and community service).

Meyo Invitational – Four minutes, one mile. For years it was the unbreakable barrier and it remains among the most celebrated feats in all of sport. Folks that know the sport of track and field will tell you that 3:40 in the 1,500 or 7:55 in the 3,000 are just as impressive, but to the casual fan there is something about the simplicity of it; four laps, four minutes, one mile. In February 2011, the 25th annual Meyo Invitational will return to the Loftus Sports Center on Notre Dame’s campus with the marquee event at the meet being the Meyo Mile. In the past three seasons, no fewer than four runners have broken the magical four-minute mark, highlighted by two of the most exciting races at Notre Dame in recent memory. In 2003, Luke Watson won the race in school record time (3:57.83), moving into the lead a mere 30 meters from the finish line. After the dust had settled, the top five in the race were each in under four minutes, each within a half second of

He holds two U.S./foreign patents for optical devices, including a slit-lamp, mountable intraocular biometer. Also an accomplished jazz musician, Hurd completed work on his fourth CD, in which he plays the saxophone and flute. Hurd and his wife Rhynette, an attorney, have sent both of their sons to Notre Dame. One of his sons, Ryan, was a four-year monogram winner on the Irish track and field team from 2001-04. Jinx – Although Irish great Greg Rice is widely regarded as one of the best distance runners of all time, his coach only saw him race once during his Notre Dame career. Coach John Nicholson superstitiously felt he jinxed Rice during races and therefore stayed in South Bend while Rice traveled to meets. The only race Nicholson saw was perhaps one of Rice’s finest as he outdueled Taisto Maki and Don Lash to win a three-mile race in 13:52.2. Unfortunately, the race would also be Nicholson’s last as the coach died two days later from complications of a heart attack that he suffered just hours before the competition. Lieb – Tom Lieb, an Irish shot put thrower in the early 20’s, is credited with introducing the spin-style delivery to the sport, a style which is still used today. Lieb won the NCAA title in the event during the 1923 and 1924 seasons. Loftus Center/Guglielmino Athletics Complex – Notre Dame first utilized the Loftus Center in October of 1987 and is enjoying its 24th full season of use in 2010-11. The indoor facility is highlighted by Meyo Field, a Prestige Turf surface installed in 2003 that is shared with several Irish sports teams, including the football and lacrosse

Luke Watson pulled ahead in the final 30 meters and won a heartstopping Meyo Mile in 2003, hitting the tape in a schoolrecord time of 3:57.83.

Greg Rice, billed as the greatest distance runner the United States has ever produced, was presented with the 1940 Sullivan Award as the nation’s top amateur athlete after he set a world three-mile record at the national championships. Named “the Little Man with a Big Finish,” Rice smashed the world three-mile record with a time of 13:51. He earned All-America honors in the mile in 1937, and also received those honors in the two-mile as he won the event in 1937 and ’39 and placed second in 1938. Rice was undefeated in 65 major indoor and outdoor races in just over three years with 10 world records in six different events. Rice became the first-ever cross country national champion in 1938 when he ran the four-mile course in 20:12.9 to lead the Irish to a second-place team finish. Born in 1916, Rice died in May of 1991.

Best-selling author Nicholas Sparks graduated in 1988 and was a two-time monogram winner in track and field. At Notre Dame, Sparks was a member of the 4x800-meter relay team, which still holds the outdoor school record. After pursuing a variety of jobs after graduation, he wrote his first published novel entitled “The Notebook,” which was released in 1996. It became one of only five novels published in the past 35 years that spent more than a year on the New York Times hardcover best seller list, and was eventually made into a movie in 2004 starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. His second novel, “Message in a Bottle,” was published in 1998 and remained a bestseller for 43 weeks. The film version, starring Kevin Costner, Paul Newman and Robin Wright Penn, opened at number one at the box office and grossed more than $100 million. His third novel, “A Walk to Remember ”, was published in October 1999 and turned into a movie in 2002 starring Mandy Moore. In 2004, he was honored by Notre Dame with the first-ever Rev. Robert F. Griffin, C.S.C., Award, for establishing an initiative in the University’s Creative Writing Program that includes fellowships, internships and an annual Sparks Prize to support a student writer-in-residence. Nicholas Sparks is married and has five children. He lives in New Bern, N.C., and still runs nine miles a day.

A middle-distance track star at Notre Dame, Alex Wilson is a perfect example of an outstanding athlete and legendary coach. While at Notre Dame, Wilson was undefeated in the quarter- and halfmile events and set a national indoor record of 49.3 for the 440 in 1932. He set records in both the 440 and 880 races. Wilson also won the Amateur Athletic Union 600 and twice captured the Milrose 600. In 1928 and 1932, he competed in the Olympics for his native Canada and won a silver in the 800-meter race and a bronze in the 400-meter run in 1932. In 1950, after 18 years as a successful track and swimming coach at Loyola (Ill.), he returned to coach at Notre Dame. During his 23 years with the Irish, his teams finished in the national top-10 11 times. Wilson guided three track national champions, 28 track and eight cross country All-Americans and led the Irish to the cross country national championship in 1957. His teams appeared in the meet a total of 18 times. He was voted into the Canadian Track Hall of Fame in 1954 and in 1967 he was elected to the Helms Athletic Foundation Hall of Fame for his contributions as a track coach in the United States. In December 2008, Wilson was inducted into the U.S. Track and field and Cross Country Coaches Association Hall of Fame. Wilson was also honored as national coach of the year by the NCAA Cross Country Coaches Association in 1972, and an indoor track and field meet is held in his honor each year at Notre Dame. Wilson died Dec. 10, 1994, at the age of 87.

Rick Wohlhuter, a two-time Olympian and 1971 Notre Dame graduate, was selected to the Track and Field Hall of Fame in 1991. Winner of an Olympic bronze medal in the 800 meters in 1976, he holds the distinction of being the last man to qualify for the Games in both the 800 - and 1,500-meter events. Wohlhuter won the IC4A 880-yard title in 1971 and qualified for the Olympics in 1972. In addition to his appearance in the Games, Wohlhuter broke the U.S. 800-meter record twice and twice set world records for the 880-yard race. He also set the world record for the 1,000 meters in 1974 and won the event the next three indoor seasons. Wohlhuter also won national outdoor titles in 1973 and ’74. In 1974 he earned the Sullivan Award as the nation’s top amateur athlete. A 1970 NCAA champion in the 600-yard event, the two-time AllAmerican was also a member of Notre Dame’s two-mile relay team which placed second in the nation in 1969. Wohlhuter joined John Beatty, the first man to break the four-minute mile indoors, high jumper Charles Dumas, a 1956 gold medalist and first jumper to clear seven feet, and Doris Brown-Heritage, winner of 14 U.S. distance titles and five world cross country championships, as the 1991 Track and Field Hall of Fame inductees.

Tameisha King graduated from Notre Dame in 2003, and left the University as its top female long jumper. King owns both the indoor and outdoor school records for the long jump, in addition to running in the school record 4x100-meter relay. She was a four-time All-American, with three of those honors coming during the outdoor season, and one during the indoor season. Each of her All-America honors came in the long jump. King had five top-10 finishes in the NCAA Championship as well as four BIG EAST Championships to her credit. King also has a very impressive résumé outside of the collegiate spectrum. In 2001, as a sophomore, she placed second in the long jump at National Junior Track and field Championship, and went on to finish among the top 10 at the World Junior Championship in Santiago, Chile. More recently, King won the 2004 USA Track and field Indoor long jump title after finishing fourth in ’03. She also ended up sixth at the 2004 U.S. Olympic Trials and was the top finisher from the United States at the 2003 Pan American Games.

A 2001 graduate, Ryan Shay became the USA Marathon Champion in 2003, continuing the championship ways of his collegiate years. Shay is the most decorated athlete in the history of Notre Dame track and field. A 2001 NCAA champion in the 10,000 meters, Shay was a nine-time All-American including two honors for cross country, two for indoor track and five for outdoor track. His nine honors are the second-most in school history. In 2002, a fifth year of eligibility, Shay was named an Academic AllAmerican and had a second-place finish in the 10,000 meters at the NCAA Championship. Shay was a nine-time BIG EAST champion in his years at Notre Dame, with one of those victories coming in cross country. He also had seven top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championships in various distance events including the 3,000, 5,000 and 10,000 meters. In 2000, he competed for the right to represent the USA Track and field Team at the Olympic Games, finishing 10th in the Olympic Trials. Upon graduation, he held school records in the indoor 5,000 meters, the outdoor 5,000 meters and the 10,000 meters. Shay's 2001 national championship was the first outdoor championship by a Notre Dame athlete since 1954. Shay died unexpectedly on Nov. 3, 2007 during the running of the 2008 U.S. Olympic Marathon trials in New York City.

Enjoying one of the best careers in the history of Notre Dame track and field, Luke Watson competed in one of the most exciting moments in the history of the track and field program. In January of 2003, Watson broke one of the great barriers in sports, the four-minute mile, in front of one of the largest crowds to ever see a track meet at Notre Dame. Watson’s mile of 3:57.83 was the fastest collegiate indoor mile in the country in ’03 and was only the second subfour-minute mile in school history. In the ’03 season, Watson’s last with the Irish, he was honored as an All-American for the eighth time, including two for cross country, four for indoor track and two for outdoor track. He was also named an Academic All-American in both the ’02 and ’03 seasons. Upon graduating, Watson had five top-10 finishes in the NCAA Championships, and two top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championship for cross country. Additionally, Watson held six school records upon graduation – the indoor and outdoor mile, the 3,000-meter steeplechase, the indoor 3,000 meters, outdoor 5,000 meters and the distance medley relay. Watson was also a force to be reckoned with in the BIG EAST. During his career he was a six-time BIG EAST champion. He also led the 2003 Irish to BIG EAST Championships in both the indoor and outdoor seasons, the first time a Notre Dame team accomplished that feat.

Molly Huddle graduated from Notre Dame in 2007 as one of the most decorated athletes in Irish sports history. Huddle concluded her career at the 2007 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, finishing third in the 5,000-meter run to earn her tenth All-America selection, a record for the most All-America selections by a Notre Dame athlete in any sport. Huddle’s other accolades include six BIG EAST track titles, the most by any Irish woman, and four NCAA Mideast Regional 5,000-meter titles. She set records across the board by being the first woman in BIG EAST history to win both the outdoor 5,000-meter and 10,000-meter race in back-to-back years as well as be named the BIG EAST Outstanding Outdoor Track Performer for two consecutive seasons. Former sprinter Liz Grow is the only other Irish athlete to win the award, receiving the honor in 2002. Huddle posted top-four finishes in each of her four NCAA 5,000m appearances, taking the runner-up spot in 2006. She currently holds four Irish school records (indoor 3,000m & 5,000m/outdoor 5,000m & 10,000m) as well as the BIG EAST meet record in the 10,000m. Huddle’s success was not limited to the track. In her freshman season of cross country she was named the 2003 NCAA Great Lakes Regional Runner of the Year after her firstplace performance. She earned AllAmerica honors in 2002, 2003 and 2005. Huddle has competed at several USA Track and Field Championships, placing seventh at the 2004 Olympic Trials and winning the 2003 U.S. Junior National 3,000-meter title.

Season Preview

The men’s track and field team has been the BIG EAST Conference Outdoor champion each of the last three seasons, and seeks a fourth straight title in 2010-11.


Men's Track & Field Preview Irish Ready To Repeat As BIG EAST Champions Notre Dame heads into 2010-11 season set to defend indoor and outdoor conference crowns.

Notre Dame captured a pair of league titles in 2009-10, and hopes to do the same this season.

Consistency has been the hallmark of Notre Dame men’s track and field teams over the last several seasons. In 2009-10, the Irish claimed both the indoor and outdoor BIG EAST Conference championships, which was also the third straight year Notre Dame captured the league title of the outdoor variety. While Notre Dame loses several key contributors from last season, a talented group of returnees and newcomers are set to lead the Irish in 2010-11. Irish head coach Joe Piane and his staff believe that the Irish have the potential and personnel to have another successful track season. “I am anticipating that this will be another strong season for us,” says Piane, who is entering his 36th season with the Irish. “We have a number of returnees that will continue to produce for us, as well as newcomers who are capable of contributing during both the indoor and outdoor seasons.” Dan Clark, Matt Schipper and Eric Quick – three of Notre Dame’s top performers last season – have each graduated.

Look for senior Dan Jackson (Ann Arbor, Mich./Dexter) to be among the top performers during the indoor and outdoor seasons. Jackson has been one of Notre Dame’s top distance runners throughout his career and competed in the 2010 NCAA Outdoor Championships in the 10,000 meters. Senior Jack Howard (Libertyville, Ill./ Libertyville), who earned an All-American honor in 800 meters at the 2010 NCAA Indoor Championships, returns to lead the middle distance squad. Sophomore Trent Sayers (Whitby, Ontario/Sinclair) and junior Randy Babb (Wheaton, Ill./Wheaton Warrenville South) both return after battling injuries during last season. Their renewed presence in the lineup will give the Irish solid depth in the middle distance running events. Leading the short sprinters will be Miklos Szebeny (Telki, Hungary/Secondary School of Plarist Fathers) who is looking to be among Notre Dame’s top competitors in the sprint events “We are hoping that Miklos begins the

NOTRE DAME®

season competing in the way that we project him to,” assistant coach Amy Henry says. “We are going to look to him to contribute at every meet and to score for us during each of the two BIG EAST championships.” Also returning to the sprints crew is junior Jordan Rincon (Las Vegas, Nev./ Spring Valley). As a freshman, Rincon earned all-BIG EAST honors, finishing second in the 400 meters. Due to injuries in his second season he was unable to compete, but is expected back in the lineup this season. Senior Denes Veres (Ellwood City, Pa./Riverside) once again looks to be Notre Dame’s top performer in the throwing events. Veres concluded last season by earning all-BIG EAST accolades in the shot put and hammer throw. “Last year we were very strong in the hammer throw and had five different individuals score for us,” assistant coach Adam Beltran says. “We have every single one of them returning this season, and that will be a very good thing for us and will be one of strengths throughout the year.” Justin Schneider (Atlanta, Ga./Greater Atlanta Christian) once again will look to continue his success as a multi-events specialist for Notre Dame. The senior has earned all-BIG EAST honors in the multi-events in each of three seasons with the Irish. Kevin Schipper (Leo, Ind./Bishop Dwenger) returns to the Irish after earning All-American accolades in the pole vault. The junior set a personal best of 5.30 meters at the NCAA outdoor meet to earn the distinction. Among the talented newcomers are middle distance competitors Walter Schafer (Centennial Colo./Cherry Creek) and Martin Grady (Burr Ridge, Ill./Fenwick).


Men's Track & Field Preview The sprint squad will add Pat Feeney (Indianapolis, Ind./New Palestine) to its 400and 1,600-meter relay events. Bryce Wood (Phoenix, Ariz./Chandler) will be expected to contribute in the 100-meter hurdles, and Jarrod Buchanon (South Bend, Ind./Clay) will be the final key addition to the sprints crew. The South Bend product will compete in the 400-meter hurdles and the 4x400-meter relay. Highlighting the 2010-11 track and field season are four indoor home meets and the BIG EAST Conference Championships. The Blue and Gold meet will commence the 2010-11 season Dec. 3 at the Loftus Sports Center in Notre Dame, Ind. In 2009, the men and women’s teams registered 48 qualifiers for the BIG EAST meet.

The Irish will return to the Loftus Sports Center for the Notre Dame Invitational on Jan. 22. The 24th annual Meyo Invitational is scheduled for Feb. 4-5. The two-day meet welcomes some of the nation’s top track and field talent and features the Meyo Mile and Ryan Shay 3,000-meter run. The 2010 Meyo Invitational featured Ohio State’s Jeff See in the marquee event, as he went 3:58.82 in what is always the fastest mile race during the regular season. The final home event of the indoor season will be the Alex Wilson Invitational March 4-5. The meet carries the namesake of the former Notre Dame middle-distance track star and legendary coach.

The BIG EAST Conference Championships are always a welcomed showcase for the Irish. By winning both the men’s indoor and outdoor titles last season, Notre Dame continued its impressive string of top-three finishes in both of the meets. Since the program joined the BIG EAST in the 1995-96, the Irish men have not finished lower than third place in either of the two championships.

Women's Track & Field Preview Irish Women Look To Veterans For Leadership In 2010-11 Women’s track and field team boasts strong group of returnees.

The Irish look to improve upon their standings in the indoor and outdoor BIG EAST Championships in 2010-11.

The Notre Dame women’s track and field team enters the 2010-11 season returning several student-athletes and welcomes numerous talented freshmen while graduating only a handful of seniors from last season’s squad. This combination will pave the way to success for the 2010-11 campaign. “This season will be a successful one on the women’s side,” says head coach Joe Piane, who is entering his 36th season at the helm of the program. “We have a strong group of returners as well as solid young athletes which I believe will bolster the program.” However, while the loss of All-American sprinter Joanna Schultz will leave quite a void in the Irish roster, it will provide an opportunity for a number of returners to step up and fill Schultz’s pivotal role. “The key loss is Joanna,” says assistant coach Amy Henry. “She had a heavy impact on the team, being that she could run anything from the 400-meter hurdles and down if we needed her to. Finding her replacement will be a big task, but our team is up to the challenge.”

Other key contributors lost to graduation were two of the most accomplished throwers in program history, Jaclyn Espinoza and Elise Knutzen. Fortunately for the Irish, there are several student-athletes ready to step up and fill the roles of their graduated teammates. Among them is distance member Jessica Rydberg (Pinetop, Ariz./Blue Ridge). The freshman concluded the 2010 outdoor season as an All-American in the 10,000 meters. In addition to Rydberg, the middle-distance and distance runners welcome back seniors Kelly Langhans (Baden, Pa./North Allegheny) and Abby Higgins (Naperville, Ill./ Benet Academy) and junior Natalie Johnson (Englewood, Colo./Xavier College Prep). The trio has proven that they are able to contribute significant points in their respective events at several indoor and outdoor contests. Additionally, junior Allison Schroeder (Ottawa, Ohio/Ottawa-Glendorf ) will return to the middle-distance squad. “Allison has been solid for us in the relays,”

says assistant coach Tim Connelly. “We are hoping to see her reach the next level and become an individual scorer at the league meets in the 800 meters. Overall, there is a good group of middle-distance runners returning. Langhans, Higgins, Johnson and Schroeder will all bring a lot of experience to the team.” On the longer distance side, sophomore Rebecca Tracy (Barrington, Ill./Barrington), senior Marissa Treece (Maple City, Mich./ Glen Lake) and senior Erica Watson (Noblesville, Ind./Noblesville) have all scored for the Irish at past BIG EAST meets and will be looked upon to continue their contributions to the team. Graduate student Lindsey Ferguson (Greenfield Center, N.Y./Saratoga Springs), who is limited only to outdoor eligibility, will compete in the 3,000-meter steeplechase and the five-kilometer race. Sophomore sprinter Nevada Sorenson (Sioux Falls, S.D./Lincoln) will focus on the 400-meter hurdles as well as the 4x100 and 4x400-meter relays. “Nevada is very competitive,” says Henry. “She has the ability and drive to run anything she sets her mind to.” Kali Watkins (Newport News, Va./ Menchville) will primarily run the 100-meter hurdles for the Irish. “We are looking forward to watching Kali step up and run the way we projected her to when she arrived at Notre Dame,” Henry says. Senior thrower Rudy Atang (Houston Texas/St. Pius X) holds the program record in the outdoor shot put with a heave of 49-4 feet. The tosser will return as a weight and shot put thrower during the indoor season, and shot put and hammer thrower in the outdoor campaign. Long- and triple-jumper Jasmine Williams (Phoenix Ariz./Xavier College Prep), polevaulter Chrissy Finkel (Montville, N.J./ Montville Township) and multi- event specialist Maddie Buttinger (Waterloo, Ontario/ Resurrection C.S.S.) will add to the team’s success. Buttinger has placed at two BIG

Women’s Track & Field EAST meets, as the Canadian product finished third in the pentathlon at the latest indoor meet and second in the heptathlon at the outdoor meet. Incoming freshmen include sprinters Michelle Brown (Shamong, N.J./Seneca) and Aijah Urssery (Inglewood, Calif./St. Mary’s Academy). Brown will run the 400 meters and Urssery will be a short sprinter. Both will be expected to help out in the 1,600-meter relay. “Even though we lost Schultz we will add Brown and Urssery,” says Henry. “They will boost our sprints crew and will provide a step in the right direction for us becoming a total sprint crew.” Kelly Burke (Cranford, N.J./Cranford) will join assistant coach Jim Garnham’s squad of jumpers, while Vivien Devaney will assist the

throwers under the direction of Beltran. Joining the middle distance and distance events are Meg Ryan (Fairfield, Conn./ Fairfield Warde), Kelly Curran (Bloomington, Ill./Bloomington Central Catholic), Alexa Aragon (Billings, Mont./Billings Senior) and McKinzie Schulz (Naperville, Ill./Benet Academy). “Ryan, Curran, Aragon and Schultz have the capability of scoring for us at the BIG EAST meets,” says Connelly. They all have the potential to be very good 800-meter, 1,500meter and 3,000-meter runners.” By combining such a strong group of returners and talented newcomers, the Notre Dame women’s track and field team hopes to continue its steady stream of improvements and succeed at the highest level of competition.

Men's Cross Country Preview Men’s Cross Country Turns To Veterans And Newcomers In 2010 Senior Dan Jackson hopes to lead team to NCAAs. The Notre Dame men’s cross country team heads into the 2010 season with experienced runners and a positive attitude. The team returns several of its top performers from the 2009 campaign while also welcoming a talented group of incoming freshmen. The Irish men lost one key runner from last season, Jake Walker, who was consistently a top finisher for Notre Dame. A two-time allBIG EAST honoree, Walker competed in four NCAA Great Lakes Regional meets and four NCAA Championship events. “We really only lost one runner and that’s Jake,” veteran head coach Joe Piane remarks. “It is a big loss because he was among the best in the region, qualified for NCAAs, was our team captain and number-one go-to runner,” veteran head coach Joe Piane remarks. “But since we are only losing one runner, we return quite a few athletes. Our top cross country runners had great track seasons this past the winter and spring.”

One of the top returners is Ann Arbor, Mich., native Dan Jackson. The senior has been a key contributor each of the last two seasons, running at both the BIG EAST Championship and Great Lakes Regional meets. In addition to Jackson, Piane intends to look to Jordan Carlson for leadership. A junior out of Inver Grove Heights, Minn., Carlson has two BIG EAST Championship cameos under his belt. He also was a regional qualifier. Fellow seniors Ryan Jacobs (Roscoe, Ill.) and Paul Springer (Kennett Square, Pa.) give the Irish solid experience. Both have run in three BIG EAST Championship meets, three Great Lakes Regional races and two NCAA Championship events. A product of Bowling Green, Ohio, Joe Miller will lead a talented group of junior runners this season. As a freshman, Miller earned all-BIG EAST honors and finished

20th at the Great Lakes Regional meet to qualify for the NCAA Championship. Kelly Lynch of Spokane, Wash., and Johnathan Shawel (Placentia, Calif.) also are samong a bountiful crop of runners to watch during the campaign. The Irish men are welcoming a talented group of freshman to the squad this year. One of the top rookies is Walter Schafer (Centennial, Colo.), who ran in the World Cross Country Championships and has posted a time of 4:10 in the mile. D.J. Thornton, (Rahway, N.J.) was clocked at 4:09 for his mile performance as a prep and Martin Grady (Burr Ridge, Ill.) finished 13th at the recent Foot Locker National Meet. “My hope is that we will run each of the courses more aggressively this year,” Piane says. “We need to get more involved and engaged during our races.”

Women’s Cross Country Preview Women’s Cross Country Returns After Successful 2009 Season Irish women hope to continue success with another trip to the NCAA Championship meet in Terre Haute, Ind. The Notre Dame women’s cross country team will return five of its top seven runners from the 2009 campaign. However, its key contributor from a successful 2009 season, Lindsey Ferguson, left big shoes to fill. Ferguson, who was a topfive finisher for Notre Dame throughout her career, earned three BIG EAST all-conference honors, Great Lakes Regional accolades and her first All-American citation in 2009 after finishing 3-0th at the NCAA Championship. Head coach Tim Connelly, who is entering his 23rd season with the Irish, realizes the loss of Ferguson will be significant but looks to several individuals who will be found prominently in the Irish lineup throughout the year. The women have qualified for the NCAA Championship each of the past two seasons, but Connelly and his team entering the 2010 campaign with a greater goal in mind. “Our goal this season isn’t to just get to the NCAAs” says Connelly. “We have done that two straight years. Our goal is to get there

again, and run faster. We have an experienced group of returners, and their maturity will help us improve as a team.” Junior Rachel Velarde (Albuquerque, N.M.) was instrumental in Notre Dame’s qualification for the NCAA Championship in both 2008 and 2009. Despite not being able to run during the indoor and outdoor track seasons due to injury, she had a great summer of training. Connelly feels confident that Velarde has regained her form of one year ago and will be among Notre Dame’s top runners. A Maple City, Mich., native, senior Marissa Treece has been a top runner in each of her three seasons. If she utilizes her experience and maintains consistency, she will be a vital part of the success of the Irish this fall. Sophomore Jessica Rydberg (Pinetop, Ariz.) was hurt early to start off the 2009 fall season, but ran at the BIG EAST, Great Lakes Regional and NCAA Championship meets. She had a great regional meet, finishing 10th overall to help the Irish to the regional

crown. Rydberg was also the second Irish runner to cross the finish line at the NCAA Championship. She went on to post an outstanding track season and finished with AllAmerican honors in the 10,000 meters at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. Connelly also expects senior Erica Watson (Noblesville, Ind.) to be among the top runners this season. “Erica has been in our top five and is a really solid student-athlete for this program,” Connelly says. “She had a good outdoor season, ran at the regional meet and will be somewhere in the mix this season.” In addition to the returners, the Irish welcome several talented first-year runners. Kelly Curran (Bloomington, Ill.) is a two-time cross country state champion and two-mile champion. Meg Ryan (Fairfield, Conn.) was a Foot Locker finalist in cross country and a state mile champion in Connecticut. Other top prospects include Mackenzie Schultz (Naperville, Ill.) and Alexa Aragon (Billings, Mont.). Aragon was tabbed as one of Montana’s top prep runners as a senior.

Outdoor Track & Field Facility

Notre Dame’s new three-million dollar outdoor track will be the competition and practice site for the Irish track and field programs. Construction on the nine-lane facility began in June 2008.

One of the newest editions to the Notre Dame campus is the outdoor track and field complex. Groundbreaking ceremonies heralded the start of construction on the threemillion dollar outdoor facility in June 2008. The new nine-lane track is located southeast of the Joyce Center and will be the competition and practice site for the Notre Dame men’s and women’s track and field teams.

The track will meet IAAF guidelines with the widest possible turns, and one synthetic “D”zone will be located at the south end of the track. Throwing and jumping events will be provided in two directions, and a warmup area will be located at one end of the track. Fundraising efforts continue on the remaining five-million dollar stadium por-

tion of the track facility. Lead gifts for the project have come from an anonymous benefactor, as well as six named Notre Dame supporters: • John Hatherly ’82, who ran track for the Irish as a miler and for whom the men’s locker room will be named. • Dr. Bob Harris ’69, a chemistry major who played intramural football and has participated in Notre Dame’s Football Fantasy Camp. • Dr. Jim Kerrigan ’79, a monogram winner for the Notre Dame track team. • John Leahy ’84, who continues the Leahy athletic legacy at Notre Dame. • Mike Lukas ’79 MA, whose daughter, Katherine, will graduate from Notre Dame in 2010. • Rick and Emily Peltz (Rick is a South Bend/Indianapolis businessman).

Groundbreaking ceremonies were held in June 2008 marking the start of construction on Notre Dame’s new outdoor track.

Coaching Staff

Head coach Joe Piane begins his 36th season with the cross country and track and field teams. The experienced Piane and his support staff hope to guide the Irish to a successful 2010-11 season.


Head Coach Joe Piane

Head Coach 36th season Loras College ‘69

In 1889, track and field became the second varsity sport in school history. One hundred and 21 seasons later, student-athletes continue to represent the Fighting Irish across the nation on the track, in the field and on the cross country course. For the past 35 campaigns, Joe Piane has been leading the program – and shows no signs of stopping any time soon. The longest active tenured coach at Notre Dame, Piane begins his 36th season under the Golden Dome in the fall of 2010, having recently inked a multi-year contract extension. During the 2009 cross country season Jake Walker represented the Irish as he earned an individual bid to the NCAA Championship. Walker finished the eight-kilometer race in 129th place in 31:12.50. The 2009-10 men's track and field team claimed both the BIG EAST indoor and outdoor crowns. At the indoor meet the men captured 15 all-BIG EAST honors and five individual titles. The outdoor BIG EAST meet was highlighted by 2010 graduate Daniel Clark who won the 1,500-meters The 2009-10 women's track and field member, Joanna Schultz captured her fourth conference title, including the first-ever Irish hurdle crown in 56.82. Overall, the women earned six all-BIG EAST honors between the indoor and outdoor meets. Jessica Rydberg claimed an All-America honor in the 10,000-meter in 33:34.60. The 2010-11 season will be yet another landmark for Piane as he moves into second place in Notre Dame history for longest coaching tenure. Piane passed former Irish fencing coach Mike DeCicco (34 seasons from 1962-95) and tennis and wrestling coach Tom Fallon (32 seasons from 1955-87), and now sits behind legendary baseball skipper Jake Kline, who spent 42 seasons with the Irish from 1934-75. “I’m thrilled to know that I’ll be here at Notre Dame for the next several years and hopefully well beyond that until my retirement,” Piane said. “My family and I truly enjoy living in South Bend and being a part of the community here. I also value and appreciate the opportunity I have had to work at a place like Notre Dame because of the quality of the people I’ve been fortunate enough to work with. I have coached many very special student-athletes during my time here and seeing their development has been one of the most

rewarding aspects of my job — one that I’m eager to continue well into the foreseeable future.” Piane’s record at Notre Dame speaks for itself. Just consider the accomplishments Notre Dame athletes have made under Piane’s watchful eye: • Men’s cross country runners have earned AllAmerican status 26 times, with Patrick Smyth taking home the honor in 2008. • A Notre Dame cross country runner has appeared at the NCAA Championship meet in each of the past 20 years, while the team has made the trip 19 out of the past 26 years. • The Notre Dame men’s cross country team has finished in the top 10 at the NCAA meet in 11 of the past 22 seasons, highlighted by third-place finishes in 1990 and 2005 (matching the program’s best showing since winning the 1957 NCAA title). • The Irish men’s cross country team has won five BIG EAST Conference titles since joining the league in 1995, including crowns in 2004 and 2005. What's more Notre Dame men's harriers have earned all-BIG EAST honors 40 times, with a school-record five runners receiving that distinction in '05. • The Irish men’s track and field team has earned 73 All-America citations since 1974 (including Jack Howard in the 800 during the 2010 indoor season and Kevin Schipper in the pole vault during the 2010 outdoor season), while the women’s team has received 43 such accolades since 1994 (most recently Jessica Rydberg in 2010). Combined, Piane has helped mentor 114 track and field All-Americans (and 130 overall when including cross country honorees) during his tenure. • Both the Notre Dame men’s and women’s track and field teams were champions in 2007 with the Irish men taking the indoor title and the Irish women claiming their first outdoor team championship. The men also claimed the 2008 and 2009 BIG EAST outdoor titles and the 2010 BIG EAST indoor and outdoor titles. Overall the

NOTRE DAME®

men’s team has won 11 BIG EAST titles (four indoor/seven outdoor), while the women’s squad has hoisted the hardware three times (two indoor/one outdoor). • In the school’s 14-year BIG EAST membership (1995-96 to present), Notre Dame athletes have won 123 conference individual or relay titles in track and field and cross country, with eight student-athletes named the conference’s outstanding track or field performer at its indoor or outdoor championship meets. A distance-coaching specialist, Piane is recognized across the nation as one of the best in the business. He has been named NCAA Division I National Cross Country Coach of the Year on two different occasions (1987 and 2001) while garnering five district/regional coach-of-the-year honors and nine league cross country coach-of-the-year plaques. In total, Piane has earned or shared 28 league coach of the year awards (indoor track, outdoor track or cross country), including 16 BIG EAST Coaching Staff of the Year accolades in the past 12 years (1999-2010). In 2007 alone the Notre Dame staff earned two of those BIG EAST Coaching Staff of the Year honors, one for men’s indoor track and field and one for women’s outdoor track and field. They also racked up two more for men’s outdoor track and field in 2008 and 2009. Individually, Piane and his assistants at Notre Dame produced six All-Americans in track and field in 2009 with three during the indoor season and three during the outdoor season. Mary Saxer became Notre Dame’s first-ever women’s pole vault All-American, earning her first All-America honor at the NCAA Indoor Championships. She earned her second All-America citation at the outdoor meet later that season. Joanna Schultz earned her first All-America honor with an eighthplace finish in the 400 meters at the NCAA Indoor Championships. Jaclyn Espinoza finished third in the discus at the outdoor championships to earn her first All-America recognition, as well. Smyth earned his sixth and seventh All-America honors


in 2009. His combined seven All-America honors are the third most in Irish men’s track and field/ cross country history behind only Ryan Shay (nine) and Luke Watson (eight). Piane’s success has not just been in the present, as three of his more successful pupils in recent years have been 10-time All-American Molly Huddle (2007), Shay (2001) and Watson (2002). Huddle finished her career under Piane with ten All-America certificates, a record for the most All-America selections by a Notre Dame athlete in any sport. The Elmira, N.Y., native had seven career BIG EAST championships, including back-to-back double victories in the 5,000-meters and the 10,000-meters in her last two seasons. Her seven championships are the most by any Irish woman and she joins former student-athlete Liz Grow as Notre Dame’s only athletes to be named the BIG EAST Outstanding Outdoor Track Performer in two consecutive years (2006, 2007). She currently holds four Irish school records (indoor 3,000-meters & 5,000-meters/outdoor 5,000-meters & 10,000-meters). In 2001, Piane helped distance specialist Shay compile one of the greatest track seasons in Notre Dame history. The Central Lake, Mich., resident won the BIG EAST indoor 5,000-meters, the conference outdoor 5,000-meters and 10,000-meters and finished off the season in legendary style by becoming Notre Dame’s first individual NCAA champion since 1972 by taking first place in the 10,000 meters (29:05.44) at the NCAA Outdoor Championship in Eugene, Ore. Shay moved on to become one of the best marathon runners in the country, winning five U.S. titles as well as USA Running Circuit (USARC) titles in 2003 and 2004. Tragically, Shay’s life was cut short as he died suddenly during the running of the 2008 U.S. Olympic marathon trials in New York City. Shortly after helping steer Shay to the top of the college running mountain, Piane had similar success with Watson. Both men had set their sights on breaking the four-minute mile barrier at the Meyo Invitational in 2002, hoping that Watson would become just the second Irish runner to crack the mark. Piane helped assemble an outstanding field for the race, which was arguably the highlight of the entire collegiate indoor season. Watson did his part, scorching past the field

in the final straight away to win in 3:58.83, easily a school-record time and briefly the fastest mile run in the world during the indoor season. Watson eventually moved on to garner All-America honors in the indoor mile, indoor 3,000-meters and outdoor 5,000-meters – as well as taking home BIG EAST Championships in the mile, 3,000meter steeplechase and outdoor 5,000-meters. In the summer of 2006, Watson returned to his alma mater as a member of the Irish men’s distance/cross country coaching staff. With Piane at the helm, the Notre Dame men’s cross country team has enjoyed six of its most successful seasons in the program’s history during the past ten years. In 2000, Piane helped the Irish recover from the loss of Shay due to injury and earn a ninthplace finish at the NCAA Championship meet. With Shay back on the team in ‘01, Notre Dame achieved its highest-ever national ranking (fourth), won the BIG EAST Championship (Piane and his staff earned the league’s Coaching Staff of the Year award) and ended up sixth at the national meet to give the Irish (at the time) their highest team finish since 1993. In 2004, Notre Dame threatened to eclipse its best-ever ranking, as Piane deftly guided his charges from an unranked start all the way to a BIG EAST title and a No. 5 national ranking before placing 11th at the NCAA Championship. For his efforts, Piane and his aides garnered a second BIG EAST Men’s Cross Country Coaching Staff of the Year plaque. That set the stage for 2005’s successful run that culminated in Notre Dame’s return to the NCAA awards podium for the first time since 1990. In 1985, Piane was named a member of the United States National Track staff. As such, he was one of 40 collegiate coaches given the opportunity to coach a United States squad in international competition. During the summer of 1987 he did just that, guiding a team of American allstars in meets held in England and Ireland. Upon the conclusion of the 1991 Notre Dame track season, Piane once again faced international competition as he was appointed coach of the U.S. Pan American juniors team for the games in Kingston, Jamaica. Piane became Midwest regional chairman for United States Olympic Development in the area of track and field in 1984. Piane’s other Olympic preparation experience came in ‘85 when he coached the North team in the National Sports Festival. He also coached the U.S. team against England in Birmingham, England. Piane has produced a winning record in all but one season with the Irish men’s cross country team and is also the creator of Notre Dame’s National Catholic Championship, an annual meet held on campus since 1980. The Irish running program continues to be a rapidly-growing entity thanks to Piane’s achievements. Continually searching for greater challenges, he also founded the Meyo Invitational and the Alex Wilson

Invitational, both traditional indoor Notre Dame track and field meets. A 1969 graduate of Loras College, Piane ran both track and cross country for four years at the Dubuque, Iowa, institution. He captained Loras’ undefeated cross country squad as a senior, while excelling in middle distance events during the track season. He was inducted into the Loras College Athletics Hall of Fame in the fall of 2002. Piane began his impressive coaching career in 1970. Working for the Peace Corps, he coached track and field and cross country at both the regional and national levels in the North African country of Morocco. Piane guided a top-ranked junior cross country team, sending three runners to Cambridge, England, for the International Cross Country Championship (now known as the IAAF World Championship) in 1972, where Morocco finished third. Several of those Moroccan runners went on to compete at the 1972 Summer Games in Munich, Germany, and one advanced to the 1976 Summer Games in Montreal, Canada. After returning to the United States in July 1972, Piane assisted the track and cross country programs at Western Illinois. During that time he earned a master’s degree in physical education. Born Aug. 6, 1946, in Westchester, Ill., Piane joined the Notre Dame staff in 1974 as an assistant track coach and physical education instructor with plans to stay on for just one year. He was named head track and cross country coach the following season. Piane and his wife, Mimi, reside in South Bend, with their son, Nick.

Head Coach Tim Connelly Head Women's Cross Country Coach Assistant Track & Field Coach (Women’s Distance) Notre Dame ‘83 23rd season

As the Notre Dame women’s cross country team continues to establish itself as one of the best in the nation, the man standing at the forefront of that emergence has been Tim Connelly. Now in his 23rd season at Notre Dame, Connelly not only serves as the head coach of the Irish women’s cross country team, but also tutors the middle distance and distance runners during the indoor and outdoor track seasons. As one of the longest tenured active assistants at the University, he is closely involved with all aspects of the Notre Dame track and field/ cross country program and is known as one of the best coaches in the Midwest. Since taking over the Irish women’s cross country program during its infancy in 1988, Connelly has helped Notre Dame reach unprecedented heights, finishing among the top 10 at the NCAA Championship four of the past eight seasons. Notre Dame also has garnered a trip to the NCAA awards podium twice, finishing in a program-best third place in 2002, followed by a fourth-place showing in 2004. However, that hardly begins to scratch the surface of Connelly’s accomplishments during his two-decade run at Notre Dame. The Irish women also have won three BIG EAST Conference titles (all in the past nine seasons) and placed either first or second at five of the past 10 NCAA Great Lakes Regional meets. What’s more, Notre Dame harriers have collected 15 AllAmerica honors and 27 all-BIG EAST cross country citations since the Irish joined the conference in 199596. On the track, the Notre Dame women’s distance program has grown exponentially in recent years. Irish runners have earned no fewer than 20 All-America certificates, including 16 in the past 10 years alone, while Connelly’s athletes have advanced to NCAA Championship competition 35 times (14 indoors/21 outdoors). In addition, Notre Dame women’s distance runners have garnered all-conference status 64 times and won 10 BIG EAST individual titles (as well as the 2003 distance medley relay crown) during the past 15 seasons. The Irish thinclads also have played a critical role in a pair of team titles at the BIG EAST Indoor Championship (2002, 2006) and one BIG EAST Outdoor Championship (2007), as well as nine runner-up finishes at conference meets (five indoor, four outdoor). For his efforts, Connelly has been richly rewarded

with numerous coaching honors. He has been chosen for the BIG EAST Women’s Cross Country Coaching Staff of the Year award three times (2002, 2003, 2005) and has been part of the BIG EAST Women’s Indoor Track & Field Coaching Staff of the Year twice (2002, 2006) and the BIG EAST Women’s Outdoor Track & Field Coaching Staff of the Year once (2007). Connelly’s distance runners helped the Irish women’s program to a fourth-place finish at the 2009 BIG EAST Outdoor Championships, while the women’s cross country squad finished sixth at the BIG EAST Championship with Lindsey Ferguson garnering allconference honors. The Irish also returned to the NCAA Championship for the first time since 2005. Under Connelly’s tutelage, Notre Dame’s distance program was able to excel in 2007, playing a large role in helping the Irish win their first BIG EAST outdoor championship since joining the league in 1995-96. Connelly produced six top-eight finishers to bring in points for the Irish. The women’s cross country team’s season ended with a third-place finish at the BIG EAST Cross Country Championships and a fifth-place finish at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional meet, just shy of a bid to the national meet. The conference finish was the fifth consecutive top-three BIG EAST finish by the Irish women. In 2007, Molly Huddle led the women’s distance with a runner-up performance in the 5,000-meters at the BIG EAST indoor championships and a double crown at the BIG EAST outdoor championships in the 5,000 meters and the 10,000 meters, only the third multiple winner of the honor since its inception in 1993, and the first back-to-back recipient since former Irish All-American Liz Grow took the hardware in 2001 and 2002. Her outdoor performance earned her BIG EAST Outstanding Outdoor Track Performer honors. At the NCAA Mideast Regional meet, she went on to win her fourth consecutive 5,000-meter title, to pave her way to the national meet where she became a 10-time All-American after taking third in the 5,000 meters. Connelly’s charges were at the forefront of a historic run in 2005-06, as Notre Dame came within 10 points at the conference’s outdoor meet of becoming the first school in 18 seasons to win the BIG EAST women’s “triple crown” (cross country, indoor track, outdoor track). It all started with an impressive 25-point win at the BIG EAST Cross Country Championship, with the 34-point Irish performance being the best scoring outing by any league school since 1994. Notre Dame had four of the top eight runners in the field, giving the Irish their largest-ever crop of all-conference honorees. That outing preceded a runner-up showing at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional, where Notre Dame once again was dominant up front with four of the top 10 runners in the meet. The Irish then capped the 2005 season with a seventh-place finish at the NCAA Championship, highlighted by a program-best three All-America performances (Stephanie Madia, Huddle and Sunni Olding). In fact, Madia’s third-place finish and time of 19:48.4 were the best-ever by a Notre Dame woman, while Huddle joined Lauren King as the second three-time women’s

cross country All-American in school history. Moving indoors on the track for the 2005-06 season, Jacqueline Carter and Brianne Schmidt made excellent strides in the middle distances, notching school records in the 800- and 1,000-meter runs, respectively. Madia was strong at the longer distances, peaking well late in the year with two of the top-four 5,000-meter times in school history before earning her second AllAmerica honor with a fourth-place finish at the NCAA Championship. Huddle then took center stage during the 2006 outdoor season, posting the nation’s fastest times at both 5,000- and 10,000-meters, and becoming only the second woman in BIG EAST history to win both races at the conference meet. She went on to be named the BIG EAST Outstanding Outdoor Track Performer, as well as the USTFCCCA Great Lakes District Outdoor Track Athlete of the Year and won her third NCAA Mideast Regional 5,000-meter title in as many tries. Huddle’s season ended just short of the brass ring, as she finished second in the 5,000 meters at the NCAA Championships, still the best placement ever by an Irish women’s track athlete in any event. She also garnered her ninth All-America citation. In 2004, Huddle had one of the most prolific seasons in Irish track and field history. She was an AllAmerican in the indoor 3,000- and 5,000-meter runs as well as the outdoor 5,000 meters. Connelly accompanied Huddle as she competed in the United States Olympic Trials, eventually finishing seventh in the 5,000 meters as the top non-professional/collegian in the race. A year earlier, Connelly guided Huddle to AllAmerica honors in the indoor 3,000 meters and outdoor 5,000 meters. Huddle capped that season by running away with the U.S. Junior 3,000-meter title at the national meet in Palo Alto, Calif. A 1983 Notre Dame graduate, Connelly ran both cross country and track for the Irish. Following his graduation, Connelly served as a graduate assistant coach under Joe Piane while working toward his master’s degree in business. In 1986, Connelly moved on to Syracuse as an assistant cross country and track coach. During his time in central New York, he coached the men’s and women’s middle distance and distance runners and managed recruiting duties for both programs. A native of Pittsburgh, Pa., Connelly and his wife, the former Donna Southerly, are the parents of two children — daughter, Alexandra, and son, Brendon.

Under his tutelage, 20 St. Francis studentathletes won Northeast Conference (NEC) titles in the men’s and women’s weight throw, javelin, hammer throw, discus and women’s shot put. During his tenure at St. Francis, Beltran watched 17 Red Flash throwing records fall in the men’s and women’s indoor shot put, discus, javelin, women’s outdoor shot put and the men’s hammer and weight throws. In 2007, Lisa Morse earned the Outstanding Field Performer award at the NEC Outdoor Championships, while Dian Gmiter went on to win the same award at the indoor league meet. Before his stint at St. Francis, Beltran served as an assistant coach at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. He worked with throwers and coached athletes to Mid-Continent Conference titles in the shot put and the javelin. Nine of his athletes went on to break school track and field records under his watch.

The BIG EAST Conference With 30 years under its belt, The BIG EAST Conference continues on a path of success in and out of the athletic arena. The goals have always been the same. The league wants and expects to compete at the highest level and does so with integrity and sportsmanship. The commendable performances of the student-athletes at BIG EAST schools are the indicators of the league’s proud tradition of success. The BIG EAST has gone through membership changes since its birth, but the 2009-10 academic year will mark the conference’s fifth straight with the same 16-member group, the nation’s largest Division I-A conference. In 2008-09, BIG EAST student-athletes again succeeded on the national stage. The Connecticut women’s basketball team won its sixth national championship by defeating conference foe Louisville in an all-BIG EAST NCAA title game. The Notre Dame women’s soccer team reached the NCAA championship game and the Syracuse field hockey squad advanced to the NCAA Final Four. Three BIG EAST women’s cross country teams finished in the top 10 at the NCAA Championships. West Virginia was fourth followed by Villanova in sixth place and Georgetown in ninth. Individually in women’s sports, Providence’s Dannette Doetzel won the 10,000 meters at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Connecticut’s Maya Moore was the conference’s sixth winner of the Wade Trophy as the top player in women’s basketball. Notre Dame’s Kerri Hanks won the Hermann Trophy, the top award in women’s soccer. On the men’s side, Connecticut and Villanova advanced to the Final Four in basketball. The 2008-09 campaign was arguably the best men’s basketball season in the history of the BIG EAST with the league setting NCAA standards with three No. 1 tournament seeds, four teams in the round of the Elite Eight and five in the Sweet 16. The St. John’s men’s soccer team reached the NCAA College Cup before losing in the national semifinals. BIG EAST football has maintained its high profile and its reputation as a balanced group. Seven of the league’s eight squads were nationally ranked or received votes in the national polls in 2008. Cincinnati was the league champion. The BIG EAST, a charter member of the Bowl Championship Series, has won three of its last four BCS bowl games. West Virginia, Louisville and Connecticut also have won or shared league crowns over the past four seasons. The BIG EAST has continued to produce student-athletes who were at the forefront of athletic and academic achievement. In 2008-09, 19 BIG EAST players were chosen to their respective ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Teams, including eight first-team selections. Nearly 400 student-athletes have earned academic all-America honors. The BIG EAST became the nation’s largest Division I-A conference in 2005-06 when five new members began competing. The new schools were: University of Cincinnati, DePaul University, University of Louisville, Marquette University and the University of South Florida. BIG EAST institutions reside in nine of the nation’s top 34 largest media markets, including New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Tampa, Pittsburgh, Hartford, Milwaukee and Cincinnati. With its newest members, BIG EAST markets contain almost one fourth of all television households in the U.S. Since opening its doors in 1979, the league has won 26 national championships in six different sports and 126 student-athletes have won individual national titles. The BIG EAST has enjoyed tremendous basketball success, especially in this decade. In 2008-09, the BIG EAST produced four of the eight Final Four teams in men’s and women’s basketball. It was only the second time in NCAA history that one conference placed that many Final Four teams in the same season.

In 2003-04, Connecticut became the first school in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s NCAA basketball titles in the same season. In ’02-03, the BIG EAST became the first conference in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s titles in the same year when the Syracuse men and the Connecticut women captured their respective national championships. In men’s basketball, BIG EAST squads have won three of the last 11 NCAA championships. BIG EAST women’s teams have taken six of the last 10 NCAA titles. Proactive movement has been a signature strategy for the conference that was born in 1979. The BIG EAST continually turns challenges into opportunities to become stronger. In 2009-10, the BIG EAST will add men’s lacrosse to its growing list of sports, which will increase its total to 24 sport championships. The first women’s golf championship was held in the spring of 2003. Women’s lacrosse and rowing were added in 2001. The BIG EAST became a reality on May 31, 1979, following a meeting of athletic directors from Providence College, St. John’s, Georgetown and Syracuse universities. Seton Hall, Connecticut and Boston College completed the original seven school alliance. While the membership has both increased and changed, the focus of the BIG EAST has not wavered. The conference reflects a tradition of broad based programs, led by administrators and coaches who place a constant emphasis on academic integrity. Its student athletes own significantly high graduation rates and their record of scholastic achievement notably show a balance between intercollegiate athletics and academics.

Any successful organization has been fortunate to have outstanding leadership. Michael Tranghese, the league’s first full-time employee, and for 11 years the associate to Dave Gavitt, became Commissioner in 1990. In his first year, he administered the formation of The BIG EAST Football Conference. For 2009-10, the BIG EAST will undergo one significant change. Tranghese stepped down from his position on June 30, 2009. John Marinatto, who has served as senior associate commissioner, has moved into the Commissioner’s chair. The league has long been considered a leader in innovative concepts in promotion and publicity, particularly regarding television. Those efforts have resulted in unparalleled visibility for BIG EAST studentathletes. The conference has enjoyed long-standing relationships with CBS, ESPN, Inc. and ABC. BIG EAST men’s basketball games are regular sellouts at campus and major public arenas, including the annual men’s BIG EAST Championship in Madison Square Garden. The women’s basketball championship has led all conferences in attendance for the past six years. Attendance figures also are significant in soccer and baseball. More than 550 BIG EAST student-athletes have earned All-America recognition and dozens have won individual NCAA national championships. The BIG EAST has been well represented in U.S. or foreign national and Olympic teams. Several athletes earned gold medals in each of the last six summer Olympiads. The BIG EAST has its headquarters in Providence where the conference administers to more than 5,500 athletes.

University of Notre Dame

History l The University of Notre Dame du Lac was founded

in 1842 by Father Edward Sorin. Adjacent to South Bend, Ind., and nestled next to St. Mary’s and Saint Joseph’s Lakes, the University was started with $310 in cash and three log buildings in disrepair. l Notre Dame would establish many firsts for Catholic institutions of higher learning, including the first Catholic law school, the first Catholic engineering school and the first student residence with private rooms, Sorin Hall.

Academics l The University is organized into four colleges – Arts and Letters, Science, Engineering and the Men-

doza College of Business – the School of Architecture, the Law School, the Graduate School, six major research institutes, more than 40 centers and special programs and the University library system. l Notre Dame is rated among the nation’s top-25 institutions of higher learning in surveys conducted by U.S. News and World Report, Princeton Review, Time, Kiplinger’s and Kaplan/Newsweek. l The Mendoza College of Business is ranked #1 among the nation’s top undergraduate business schools by Bloomberg BusinessWeek. l Notre Dame is among a select group of schools that ranks in the top 30 on the U.S. News & World Report survey of the nation’s top colleges and in the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Directors’ Cup for overall success in athletics.

Students l

Graduate and undergraduate students at the University come from all 50 states 100 countries worldwide. l Notre Dame’s graduation rate of 95 percent is exceeded by only Harvard and Princeton. l Notre Dame’s 98 percent retention rate between the freshman and sophomore years is among the highest in the country, thanks in large part to the University’s unique First Year of Studies Program. l Notre Dame has one of the highest undergraduate residential concentrations of any national university, with 80 percent of its students living in 29 residence halls.

l

The medical school acceptance rate of the University’s preprofessional studies graduates is 80 percent, almost twice the national average. l Notre Dame ranks first among Catholic universities in the number of doctorates earned by its undergraduate alumni – a record compiled over some 85 years.

Service l

Community service is a hallmark of Notre Dame. About 80 percent of Notre Dame students engage in some form of voluntary community service during their years at the University, and at least 10 percent devote a year or more after graduation to service in the United States and around the world. l The University’s Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) annually sends 180 recent graduates to teach in some 100 understaffed Catholic schools in the southern, southeastern and southwestern United States and in South Bend. A national model, ACE has received the Higher Education Award from the Corporation for National Service for leadership in using national service resources through AmeriCorps.

Alumni l l

l

The University’s network of nearly 270 alumni clubs – including 60 international clubs – is the most extensive in higher education. With graduates renowned for their loyalty and generosity, Notre Dame annually ranks among the top-five in percentage of alumni who contribute to the University. In recent years, Notre Dame alumni have won a Nobel Prize in medicine, a Pulitzer Prize in journalism and an Emmy Award for contributions to television technology.
