2009 Season Outlook Young Bears Aim For Continued Success


hellie Onstead has a young and talented California field hockey team that’s ready to prove it’s a contender in 2009. California’s 15th-year head coach is optimistic heading into the season despite its youth. The 2009 Golden Bears have no true seniors on the team. While Cal lost eight starters, and 10 players overall, from the 2008 squad that won the NorPac Conference’s regular-season title, Onstead is confident in her returning players and large freshman class. “I’m optimistic because that big exodus has created an opportunity,” Onstead that. “That’s driven a pretty productive spring, and created a pretty excited group and healthy competition. All those things, I think, move the program forward. A good indication of that is every one of my players trained here this summer, so I’m very optimistic. “What’s going to be fun about this year is we may play with our formation, and we may do things differently based on the players that are ready to play right now. I definitely think three weeks into the season it will be a different set up than in the first game. It’s going to be a lot more fluid than it has been in the past.” A couple of returning players will serve as mentors for the youthful squad. Defender Sophie Sproats and forward Natalie Nurnberg were starters in 2008 and are redshirt juniors in 2009. Both are academic seniors and have indicated that they will graduate after this season. “We have one at the back and one at the front,” Onstead said. “It’s kind of like they have to herd the flock in between. That’ll be good.” Cal has other veterans, including redshirt sophomore defender Erin Magill and true juniors Lisa Lohre and Megan Psyllos. Magill played in 14 games last year and started 10, while Lohre, another defender, has played in 17 games. Psyllos, a midfielder, has played in 23 games in two seasons. Players who actually get to play as true freshmen, such as Lohre and Psyllos and sophomore Jessica Kreck, are rare in Onstead’s program. The abundance of redshirt freshmen and redshirt sophomores means that Cal is more experienced than its lack of upperclassmen might indicate.

“What’s not that obvious is most of these players, who are now going to be stepping into starting positions, have been waiting an extra year of training, so it’s not like they’re complete rookies,” Onstead said. “They ran into that logjam of seniors and had to sit an extra year last season, but they had that extra year of tutoring; that’s why I think we’re going to hit the ground running.” Nurnberg should be joined up front by some combination of redshirt freshmen Claire Dougherty and Megan Shimojima and possibly true freshman Jennifer Rose, who looked good in preseason camp. “The midfield and the forward line are obviously in the most flux right now,” Onstead said. “But I would expect Claire, Shimo and Nat to be frontrunners. And they’re really, really eager, so it’s great.” Psyllos is the heir apparent to the central midfield role that 2008 senior Andrea Lo had, and is the most experienced Bear likely to play in midfield. Kreck should join her there along with some of the freshmen, possibly Kendra Bills, Laura Spellman and Deanna Kennedy.

“There are some incoming players with a lot of midfield skill,” Onstead said. “The strength of those freshmen is good timing. A lot of times the freshman year is a year of development, but I think there are a few kids ready to step on, and it’s working out nicely.” Sproats will anchor the defense but may move from the right to the left side. Lohre, who prefers the right side, would be an option there. Magill, who had a good debut season in 2008, sophomore Kaitlin Jones and redshirt freshman Kristen Goodman could also bolster the backline. “I’m not discounting the freshmen,” Onstead said. “Several incoming players could challenge for positions there if I don’t use them somewhere else. Shannon Millson, Stacey Lee and Deanna Kennedy are all good defenders.” Redshirt sophomore Maddie Hand is the first option in goal, with perhaps redshirt freshman Haleh Nourani as the backup. Former Bear Kelly Knoche had a stranglehold on the starting spot last season, though Hand played in five games and sophomore Jessica Pizarek played in one last year. “Maddie’s very quick,” Onstead said. “In the spring, she started to come into her own, directing her defense and taking more control of the back. She’s one of those players who, the more she plays, the better she gets, once she gets immersed in it.” The NorPac Conference gets a bit of a makeover, as first-year program UC Davis joins the conference, which will now be divided up into four-team eastern and western sections. Cal, UC Davis, Stanford and Pacific form the west, while Radford, Longwood, Appalachian State and Davidson form the east. Unlike in the past, the NorPac teams won’t play all of the other conference teams during the regular season; rather, the teams will play their divisional opponents twice during the season. The NorPac Tournament, hosted by Stanford this year, will provide the first chance for the eastern and western teams to meet. “The tournament will have really more intrigue to it,” Onstead said. “I think those teams on the East Coast are improving every year. Longwood is a real threat. I think they’re coming up fast. I expect them to win that division.” By then, the eastern conference teams will see a not quite as young Cal squad. “What’s interesting to me is that a lot of different people have been stepping up as leaders,” Onstead said. “Over the course of the summer it was like leadership by committee. It’ll be interesting to see how it shakes out.”

California Head Coach Shellie Onstead

California Field Hockey Head Coach 15th Season at Cal

Shellie Onstead, a 2008 U.S. Olympic assistant coach and California Hall of Fame inductee, has put Cal field hockey on the map as a player and a head coach. Onstead is a pioneer in the sport of field hockey, particularly at the collegiate level, aiding in the West Coast development of a traditionally East Coast game. The San Jose, Calif., product has also made an impact in the game at the national and international levels through her work with USA Field Hockey. In her most recent international stint, Onstead served as an assistant coach to the U.S. women’s team in the Beijing Olympics. The first All-American player for the Golden Bears, Onstead is now in her 15th year at the helm of her alma mater, which she has built into a West Coast powerhouse. Onstead has compiled a 169-87 career record and has led Cal to 10 conference titles. The six-time NorPac Coach of the Year has guided the Bears to five NCAA Tournament appearances. Cal has posted some impressive firsts over the past few seasons. In 2007, the Bears upset then-No. 4 Michigan, 1-0, for their first victory against a top-five team in Onstead’s tenure. During 2006, the Bears had one of their most successful seasons, earning their highest ranking ever at No. 12 and an appearance in the first round of the postseason. Onstead, who earned her latest NorPac Coach of the Year honor in 2006, also coached two-time NorPac Player of the Year Valentina Godfrid to her 200th career point, oversaw the Cal star as Godfrid topped the nation in goals (33) and coached Rachel Moffitt towards becoming Cal’s all-time assist leader (36) and the NorPac Defensive Player of the Year in 2008. Aside from Cal, Onstead has served in numerous coaching capacities at the national and international levels. She was an assistant coach for the U.S. women’s team that competed in the 2008 Olympics. Onstead is one of the few females on the U.S. men’s national team coaching staff and was the first woman ever to be named head coach of the men’s under-16 national team. In 2005, she served as an assistant coach for the U.S. under-21 men’s national team. The U.S. team competed in the Junior Pan


American tournament held in Havana, Cuba, where it finished fifth. In April 2004, she was an assistant coach for the U.S. men’s national team on a tour of Malaysia. In May, she served in the same capacity at the Pan American Cup in Ontario, Canada, where she also attended the Pan American Federation Coaching Clinic. In May 2002, Onstead coached the men’s under- 21 and men’s senior national teams at the California Cup, an international tournament contested in Moorpark, Calif. Also in 2002, Onstead was a video analyst for the U.S. Women’s World Cup team that competed in Perth, Australia. Onstead was the head coach of the U.S. men’s under-16 national team from 1999-2001, earning the 1999 U.S. Field Hockey Association’s National Coach of the Year. Onstead served as an assistant coach on the men’s senior national team in 2000 at the America’s Cup Tournament in Cuba and a 2001 World Cup Qualifier in Scotland. A member of the U.S. national team in 1985 and 1986, Onstead also competed at the Veteran National Team World Cup

in the Netherlands in the spring of 1998. She played for Jailbreak in 2006 and for the Rush in the 2008 Cal Cup and in the 2007 Super Division. Onstead has coached at numerous USFHA development and elite camps during the offseason. In May 2007, she served as an assistant coach for the U.S. women’s national team that competed in a tournament in Chile as it prepared for the Pan Am Games. Also in the spring of 2007, she took the U.S. under-19 Olympic Development Select team for a slate of games in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In the spring of 2006, she coached the Elite under-16 team, which toured the Netherlands and took fourth at the International Easter Hockey Tournament in

Coach Onstead at the 2008 Beijing Olympics Cal head coach Shellie Onstead was an assistant coach for Team USA at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. Some of the most memorable moments from that experience include (clockwise from below) attending the opening ceremonies, posing at the field hockey Olympic venue, analyzing team action during competition, and posing with Team USA following one of their matches.

Valkenswaard. She led the U.S. U-16 team to a third-place finish in the same tournament in 2009. As the head coach of the USFHA Western Region women’s high performance training site, Onstead coached the California team at the USA Women’s National Championships in Virginia Beach, Va., in the summer of 2006. In addition, she coached the men’s Western Region Team at the 2006 USA Men’s National Championship in Chula Vista, Calif., where it took second place. Locally, she is the director of California Field Hockey Camp at San Jose State and the Cal Elite Camp during the summer.

Onstead participated in an FIH coaching course that ran concurrently with the Champions Challenge in Virginia Beach, Va. in July 2005. In addition, she served a four-year term on the NCAA West Region Advisory Committee and was a member of the Division I Field Hockey Officiating Subcommittee. Prior to taking over the reins at Cal from long-time head coach Donna Fong in 1995, Onstead was a first-team All-American for the Bears in 1982. She served as an assistant coach to Fong for 11 seasons. As a player, Onstead still ranks among Cal’s all-time leaders in scoring. She is tied for

eigth in career goals (26) and ranks seventh in career assists (18) and seventh in points (70). Onstead came to Cal in the fall of 1980 as a transfer from UC Davis. In her first season, she led the Bears to a runner-up finish in the 1980 AIAW national tournament, the program’s best postseason showing. Onstead propelled Cal to a pair of fifthplace postseason finishes, first in 1981, in the AIAW Tournament, and in 1982, in the NCAA Tournament. She was a two-time all-conference selection. Onstead graduated from Cal in 1983 with a degree in physical education.

After her first stop with the Bears, Vinnitti served as the first assistant coach at Boston University in 1999. At Plymouth State, Vinnitti was a starting sweeper for the Panthers, earning Division III All-American honors in 1995 and 1996. The captain of her ’96 squad, Vinnitti was also selected to the Division III All-Star team. In 1993 and 1994, she led her team to the NCAA Tournament. Vinnitti has been involved as a coach with a number of camps during her career, coaching at Smith College during the summer before coming to Cal in 1997. In the three summers leading up to her start as a Cal assistant, she taught at the All-Star Field Hockey camp at Springfield College and earned head coach status in 1997. She was an instructor at the Big East Field Hockey Camps in Pennsylvania and New Jersey in 1994 and coached at Miss Porters School in Connecticut from 1994-95.

Kelly Knapp returns for her fourth year as a California field hockey assistant coach after a successful era as a goalkeeper for the Golden Bears from 2001 to 2004. A 2005 Cal graduate who majored in sociology with a minor in education, Knapp spent the 2005 season as head coach of Westview High School in San Diego before making her return to Berkeley. Knapp’s career as a student-athlete was replete with honors, including the NorPac Defensive Player of the Year award in 2004, when she led all Division I goalkeepers with 1591:51 minutes played. Her goals-against average led the NorPac conference for three straight seasons (2002-04). She played every minute of every game for three consecutive seasons (2002-04). Born in San Diego and raised in Escondido, Calif., Knapp was a four-year letterwinner in soccer and a three-year letterwinner in softball at San Pasqual High School, where she also lettered in field hockey as her team won four consecutive North County league titles.

He helped Canada win silver medals at the 1991 and 1995 Pan American Games while scoring a career-high nine goals in Canada’s goldmedal run at the 1999 Pan American Games in Winnipeg, Manitoba. From 1995 to the end of his career, he averaged one goal per game in international competition. Milkovich has an extensive coaching background, serving as an instructor for the British Columbia Hockey Association since 1987 and the West Vancouver Field Hockey Club from 1988-97.

Cal’s unique “Academic Game Plan” (AGP) is a program established by head coach Jeff Tedford to ensure success in the classroom as well as on the field. AGP, under the direction of Cal’s director of student-athlete development, consists of players meeting regularly with coaches and counselors to review coursework and assignments. Players are given an “Academic Game Planner,” which they are required to keep up-to-date. The point of AGP is to approach academics just like a game, with a plan. The players would never go into a game situation without studying film, having a plan, practicing and preparation. Tedford and the Cal staff want student-athletes to approach academics the same way.

Athletic Study Center Staff

Of the 18 players signed in 2002 in coach Tedford’s first class, 15 (83%) graduated within five years. A total of 20 players over the past 10 years have earned graduate degrees while playing and 10 of those players who earned graduate degrees have gone on to play in the NFL, including Adimchinobe Echemandu, Tyler Fredrickson, Scott Fujita, Nick Harris, L.P. Ladouceur, Alex Mack and John Welbourn. For the 2005-06 academic year, the Cal football team achieved the highest score possible (1000) in the Academic Progress Rate (APR). This past year, Cal posted a multi-year score of 970, second among Pac-10 schools. In addition, 74 student-athletes on the football team have earned Pac-10 All-Academic honors in the Tedford era.

Advising Programs

The Athletic Study Center, which is housed within the Division of Undergraduate Education, is the tutorial and academic support program for the nearly 900 student-athletes at Cal. Centrally located in the Cesar Chavez Student Center, the program provides a spacious and comfortable area for quiet study, individual classrooms for tutorials, and a computer lab for word processing and required course work.

The tutorial program promotes and enhances students’ academics skills and progress by providing individual tutoring, group workshops, study groups, credit courses and intensive special programs. The Athletic Study Center has between 50-60 tutors on staff per semester to guarantee that students receive the best possible support. Tutorial sessions are offered at night to enable student-athletes to receive help after practices when they have more time to devote to studying.

The advising programs offer a broad range of services to meet the unique needs of Cal’s student-athletes, which include assistance in understanding and complying with university, college and NCAA requirements, the development of time management skills and the resolution of personal issues unique to student-athletes.

Director of Athletics Sandy Barbour Director of Athletics

As Director of Athletics at the University of California, Sandy Barbour oversees an Athletic Department that ranks as one of the most successful in the country with a mission that seeks to match its level of excellence with that attained by the University as a whole. Under Barbour’s leadership, the Golden Bears have developed into a model program that has become a mainstay among the Top 10 in the annual NACDA Directors’ Cup standings. Cal once again matched the school’s best-ever finish in 2008-09 with a seventh-place standing, which was achieved with a national championship in women’s swimming, a runner-up finish in women’s tennis and women’s rowing, and top-five finishes in men’s swimming (4th), men’s gymnastics (4th) and volleyball (5th). The Bears were also seventh in 2006 and ’08. “Sandy Barbour was my first appointment at Berkeley, and I consider it a privilege to have her as our athletic director,” Chancellor Robert J. Birgeneau said. “Under her leadership, our student-athletes are excelling on and off the field, supported by a department committed to excellence, equity and comprehensive compliance with the rules.” Since Barbour began her tenure in Berkeley on Sept. 15, 2004, Cal programs have captured 10 national team championships and 43 individual titles. In addition, the Golden Bear football team has won four consecutive bowl games – the Las Vegas Bowl in 2005, the Holiday Bowl in 2006, the Armed Forces Bowl in 2007 and the Emerald Bowl in 2008 – and shared the Pac-10 championship for the first time in 21 seasons in 2006. Overall, Cal supports a 27-sport program with more than 800 student-athletes and a budget in excess of $60 million. On the academic front, more than half of Cal’s 27 programs maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher, with 11 of them earning cumulative GPAs higher than their historical average last year. All Bear teams also surpassed the required minimum score in the most recent Academic Progress Report, and more than 175 student-athletes have earned academic all-conference recognition in each of the last five years. One of the “100 Most Influential Women in Business” in the Bay Area according to the San Francisco Business Times, Barbour was


named a regional Athletic Director of the Year for 2008-09 by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), and she was a finalist for National AD of the Year at the Sports Business Awards. Barbour was previously chosen a 2006 Woman of Distinction by the East Bay Business Times and the 2006 National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators (NACWAA) Division I-A National Administrator of the Year. Barbour is an active member of several committees on both the national and conference levels. Currently chair of the Pac-10 Budget and Finance Committee, she is also a member of the Pac-10 Executive Committee and the Pac-10 Television Committee and served as vice president of the conference for 2007-08. In addition, Barbour is on the NACDA Executive Committee, the NCAA Diversity Leadership Strategic Planning Committee, the NCAA Women’s Basketball Discussion Group and the WBCA Defensive Player of the Year Selection Committee. Prior to moving to Berkeley, Barbour was the deputy director of athletics at Notre Dame, serving as the university’s senior athletic administrator from July 2002 to September 2004. She previously held an associate athletic director position there starting in 2000. Barbour’s career in intercollegiate athletic administration spans 28 years, beginning as a field hockey assistant coach and lacrosse administrative assistant at the University of Massachusetts in 1981. She has since served as assistant athletic director at Northwestern and in 1991 was recruited to Tulane as an associate athletic director. In 1996, Barbour was appointed Tulane’s director of athletics at age 36, and during her three years overseeing the program, Green Wave teams won 12 conference championships. In her first year in the position, the school captured four conference titles, a feat never before accomplished in Tulane history. She also hired Tommy Bowden as head football coach during her first year. Bowden proceeded in 1997 to post the Green Wave’s first winning season (7-4) in 16 years, and then directed the school to a 12-0 record, a Conference USA championship and a No. 7 national ranking the following season as the 1998 Liberty Bowl champions. In her position at Notre Dame, Barbour oversaw facilities and event operations for the school’s 26-sport program, including football game management and the department’s two golf courses. She was also

responsible for developing, maintaining and implementing Notre Dame’s $127 million athletics facilities master plan. Additionally, her role at Notre Dame included responsibilities for women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s cross country, indoor and outdoor track, men’s and women’s swimming and men’s golf. She also assisted with the administration of women’s basketball. Born Dec. 2, 1959, in Annapolis, Md., Barbour grew up in a military family. Her father was a career aviator in the U.S. Navy, and her family lived in various U.S. locations as well as in Western Europe during her childhood. Barbour graduated cum laude in 1981 with a B.S. degree in physical education from Wake Forest, where she was a fouryear letterwinner and served as captain of the field hockey team. She also played two varsity seasons of women’s basketball. Barbour earned advanced degrees at both Massachusetts (an M.S. in sports management in 1983) and Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management (an MBA in 1991). Between master’s programs, Barbour served as assistant field hockey and lacrosse coach at Northwestern from 1982-84. She also held the position of director of recruiting services during that period, before being promoted to assistant athletic director for intercollegiate programs in 1984, a position she held until 1989. Prior to joining Tulane, Barbour worked in programming and production for FOX Sports Net in Chicago during the summer of 1990.

The region is one of the most beautiful in the world and includes the major cities of San Francisco and Oakland, as well as Berkeley, home of the world-renowned University of California. Just south are San Jose and the Silicon Valley, home to many of the world’s high-tech companies. The Bay Area also lies within easy driving distance of the high Sierra resorts of Lake Tahoe and Yosemite, the Monterey/Carmel peninsula, the world famous Napa wine country and the spectacular Mendocino Coast. Everyone knows San Francisco, a.k.a. “The City,” from the numerous photographs, movies and television shows that capture its magic and beauty. It is a city built on a series of more than 40 hills, offering panoramic views of every kind. The hub of a ninecounty complex and the financial and insurance capital of the world, San Francisco has a resident population of just over 800,000 and is situated on a 46.7 square mile peninsula bounded on

the west by the Pacific Ocean, the north by the Golden Gate strait, and from north to east by the San Francisco Bay. San Francisco has been named the world’s top city twice and the top city in the U.S. in 18 of the last 19 years by Condé Nast Traveler. The San Francisco Bay is spanned by two landmarks, the Golden Gate and San Francisco-Oakland Bay bridges, and graced by four islands: Alcatraz, Angel, Yerba Buena and Treasure. The area is easily navigated by car, BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), bus or ferry, making it easily accessible to all.

Located across the Bay Bridge from San Francisco, Oakland is a city of over 400,000, jam-packed with exciting attractions, stimulating arts and an ideal climate. Oakland’s charm exceeds its man-made wonders, as its tumbling hills, vast forests, hiking and riding trails, beautiful lakes and numerous parks provide a natural escape for those who prefer nature over an urban environment. Berkeley, just a 12-mile drive from San Francisco, is situated on 17.7 square miles with a population of just under 103,000 people. A study in contrasts, Berkeley is a small town with a big city character. With its world-renowned university, global population and rich diversity of cultural arts, Berkeley reflects and affects the rest of the country.

Sports fans can see it all in the Bay Area - professional football (San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders), professional basketball (Golden State Warriors), professional baseball (San Francisco Giants, Oakland Athletics), professional hockey (San Jose Sharks) and outstanding collegiate competition (six Division I schools).
