Greetings from the President Dear Family, Friends and Fans of the Fighting Scots: As we engage upon the 2005-2006 academic year at Edinboro University, we look back with deep pride at one of the most successful years in the history of Edinboro athletics. Much of the success of our men's and women's athletic teams is due to your loyal support of our scholar-athletes in basketball, cross country, football, soccer, softball, swimming, track, volleyball, and wrestling, as well as wheelchair basketball and other adaptive sports. The long legacy of Edinboro athletics will be one of the highlights celebrated during the University's Sesquicentennial in 2006-2007. As we prepare to celebrate the University's 150th anniversary, we are guided by the vision of "Building a prosperous future through academic excellence and civility." Our athletes' dedication to education, discipline, and sportsmanship that are at the heart of Edinboro athletics will serve them well as they pursue their dreams beyond the playing fields of their alma mater. Their success in competitive endeavors will contribute to the quality of life on our campus and throughout the communities of northwestern Pennsylvania. Fans of the Fighting Scots are always welcome at Edinboro University and I look forward to greeting you at our many athletic, cultural and arts presentations. Please visit our campus as often as possible.. Go Scots!

Head Coach Chris Rhodes

E

dinboro University President Dr. Frank G. Pogue announced the appointment of former Fighting Scot AllAmerican Chris Rhodes as head swimming coach in October of 2002. "I'd like to thank the search committee for its efforts," commented Dr. Pogue at the time of the announcement. "I think they did a fine job in the recommendation of Chris Rhodes as the University's new swimming coach. We consider swimming an integral part of the Athletic Department and the mission of the University. As a member of the Edinboro Family, we're pleased to welcome him back to campus." Rhodes competed for Edinboro from 1991-95, earning All-American honors in 1993-94 and 1994-95 as a member of freestyle relay teams. He also earned All-PSAC honors and set a school record as a member of the 200 freestyle relay team. That relay team finished second at the NCAA Division II National Championships and set a conference record that stood for six years. A key part of legendary teams while a swimmer at Edinboro, Rhodes’ goal is simple yet ambitious – to return the Fighting Scots to a prominent spot in ON THE COVER: Brooke Heath, AllAmerican.

the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference. Rhodes has spent his first three years building the foundation, and he began to see some of the fruits of his efforts a year ago. A number of young swimmers qualified for the PSAC Championships, and freshman Brooke Heath earned AllAmerican honors in the 100 and 200-yard breaststroke events at Nationals. All told, the women’s team has set 35 new top ten times since Rhodes’ arrival, while the men have set six top tens. Academics has also been a major part of Rhodes’ agenda. His women’s teams have earned All-Academic honors every semester but one, and the men’s team has earned similar honors. Rhodes began his coaching career as an assistant swimming coach at Titusville High School in 1996-97, then moved on to Ashland University, one of the top programs on the Division II level, as an assistant swimming coach while completing work on his master's degree in Reading, which he received in August 1999. He returned to western Pennsylvania as the assistant swimming coach at Oil City Area High School for the 1999-2000 season. He has also served as the head coach of the Stroke Development Camp at Westminster College. In addition, he has been a Reading Specialist in the Oil City Area School District. Rhodes was graduated from Edinboro in December 1995 with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. He and his wife Stephanie reside in Edinboro. He is a member of the College Swim Coaches Association of America and the American Swimming Coaches Association.

Brooke Heath Two-Time AllAmerican, Named PSAC Rookie of the Year Though just a freshman, Brooke Heath became Edinboro’s first All-American since 1994-95 at the NCAA Division II Swimming and Diving National Championships in Orlando, FL. Heath singlehandedly helped the Edinboro women’s team place 19th at Nationals with a total of 38 points. Heath picked up steam as the nationals progressed. Her first event was the 200-yard IM, and she came away with an 11th place finish with a time of 2:07.71. The time was a new school record and helped her garner honorable mention AllAmerican honors. After failing to qualify for the finals in the 200-yard freestyle, she competed in her specialties the final two days – the 100 and 200-yard breaststroke events. After swimming a 1:05.37 in the prelims of the 100-yard breaststroke, she bettered that with a school-record time of 1:04.69, good for fourth place and her first AllAmerican honors. In the final day of the event, she came up with her best finish in the 200-yard breaststroke to again earn All-American accolades. She reached the final with a time of 2:21.16 in the prelims, then set another school record with a time of 2:19.23, good for third place. The time also set a new PSAC standard. In addition, Heath was recognized as the PSAC Women’s Swimming Rookie of the Year. She finished first in the 200-yard breaststroke and also earned All-PSAC honors with a third place finish in the 100-yard breaststroke. She added a fourth place finish in the 200-yard IM. Heath was one of many Edinboro swimmers to qualify for the PSAC Championships. She was part of a 400-yard medley relay team that included Allison Weber, Martha Kulic and Tracie Greenfield that captured ninth place. On the men’s side, Khaled Nasser finished in the top ten in three events, the 100-yard butterfly (7th), the 200-yard butterfly (9th) and the 200-yard IM (10th) Nick Whiteman placed seventh in the 1,650-yard freestyle, while Jacob Shiplet was tenth in the 200-yard butterfly.
