2009 Season Outlook Bears Look to Remain One of Nation’s Best in 2009

C

oming off its eighth straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament, California seeks to continue its success in 2009. Tenth-year head coach Kevin Grimes, who earned his 100th collegiate coaching victory last season, looks to a veteran group of seniors to lead his Golden Bears. Last season, Grimes’ squad produced a 12-4-5 record and a 5-2-3 Pac-10 mark, which was good enough to claim second place in the conference. The Bears advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA College Cup, following a double-overtime victory over UC Santa Barbara in the second round. Cal has lost nine players from 2008 but retains a talented group of juniors that was ranked the No. 16 freshman class by College Soccer News in 2007. Leading the way among the returners is standout junior forward Andrew Wiedeman, an NSCAA AllAmerican and an first-team All-Pac-10 selection after starting every game last season. Also returning are juniors Hector Jimenez and Servando Carrasco, both of whom made the All-Pac-10 team. Jimenez also made the NSCAA Far West all-region team. “We are looking forward to the 2009 season,” Grimes said. “The 2008 season had some great moments and great success. We hope to continue that momentum with our program and in particular the 2009 season.”

FORWARDS Juniors Andrew Wiedeman and Scot Van Buskirk lead the group of forwards in 2009. Last year, Wiedeman led the Bears in points (29) and goals (12). Four of his 12 goals were gamewinners, including the double-overtime tally against UC Santa Barbara in the NCAA Tournament. Wiedeman currently boasts nine game-winning goals and 12 postseason points in his collegiate career. Van Buskirk adds experience to the young group of forwards. In 2008, he played in every game of the season and collected an assist against San Francisco in the first round of the NCAA College Cup. Providing depth to the frontline is redshirt freshman Mike Munoz, who has shown he can find the back of net as he broke his high school record for most goals in a game with four during his junior campaign. Also in the mix are true freshmen John Fitzpatrick and Kyle Marsh. “Our forward line is creative and talented,” Grimes said. “Andrew Wiedeman and Scot Van Buskirk had very good sophomore seasons. We are very proud of Andrew’s

accomplishments from last year. Having an All-American on the team is a great testament to the program and his teammates.”

MIDFIELDERS Two potent weapons the Bears have at midfielder are juniors Hector Jimenez and Servando Carrasco. Jimenez was ranked in the NCAA’s top 25 in assists all last year until his season was cut short due to injury. Carrasco had a strong sophomore campaign, tallying three goals on the year, which tied for second best on the team. His 13 points on the season were second best on the team. Returning in 2009 will be juniors Anthony Avalos and Demitrius Omphroy, as well as sophomore Ted Jones, and switching from forward to midfielder this season, junior Davis Paul. Avalos started every game for Cal last season and his experience will be invaluable this season. Omphroy netted three goals last season, including one in the NCAA Tournament. As a forward last season, Paul collected 12 points (3 goals, 6 assists) and earned Pac-10 honorable mention honors. “Our midfield has always been the strength of our team, particularly the depth,” Grimes said. “We have plenty of players who can contribute this year. Hector Jimenez and Servando Carrasco both had good seasons for us last year. Anthony Avalos, Demitrius Omphroy, Ted Jones and Davis Paul all made great strides last year and could have breakout seasons in 2009.” Debuting in the midfield this year will be freshmen Steve Birnbaum, Riley Kovatch, Chris Ortega, Anthony Salciccia and senior Jeff Cosgriff, a transfer from Santa Clara. Cosgriff’s previous three seasons as a Bronco will bring some veteran leadership and experience to the squad.

DEFENDERS An area where the Bears do not lack in experience is on defense, with three seniors in the group – Jacob Wilson, Imaan Kerchgani and Evan Sassano. Wilson, who moved from forward to defender towards the end of last season, earned all-conference honorable mention honors after finishing the campaign tied for second on the team in goals with three. Kerchgani, Sassano and junior Josh Leon have each emerged as key contributors to Cal’s stingy defense. Sassano started in 19 games and notched two assists, while Kerchgani and Leon are both coming off of injury-shortened seasons. Helping them on

the backline will be junior A.J. Soares and redshirt freshman Kyle Lunt. Soares had a strong sophomore season, being named to second team All-Pac-10 and the NSCAA Far West All-Region third team. “The adjustments we have made this past spring in our backline have turned out to be great ones,” Grimes said. “With the presence of Jacob Wilson, A.J. Soares, Ted Jones and Imaan Kerchgani, our back four hasn’t missed a beat. Evan Sassano, Josh Leon and Kyle Lunt also look to make a significant contribution to the back four.”

GOALKEEPERS Despite losing All-America standout Stefan Frei to the MLS, the Bears will have sophomore David Bingham in the net. Bingham appeared in only one game last season, recording his first collegiate save. As a senior in high school, Bingham collected 13 shutouts and a goals-against average of 0.60. The other keeper returning from last season is senior Patrick Fry, who begins his third year with the Bears after transferring from Cal State Los Angeles. Adding depth will be incoming freshmen Nick Shackelford and Robby Gogatz. Shackelford previously had been named the Freshman League MVP while playing for Villa Park High School. “All four of our goalkeepers have great qualities in their games,” Grimes said. “This position has the most competition for playing time out of any other on the field.”

SCHEDULE Grimes has compiled yet another challenging schedule in 2009, with Cal playing four teams (UCLA, Maryland, Cal Poly and San Francisco) that reached the 2008 NCAA Tournament. Cal faced two of those teams in the regular season and in the NCAA Tournament last year (Maryland, USF). The Bears beat the Dons in both encounters and defeated Maryland in their regular-season contest. Two of the Bears’ opponents ended last season ranked in the top 25 of the NSCAA poll (No. 1 Maryland, No. 23 Cal Poly). “Once again Cal is going to have a top-10 strength-of-schedule ranking,” Grimes said. “Our players and coaches wouldn’t want it any other way.”

California Head Coach Head Coach Kevin Grimes has taken Cal to the NCAA Tournament the last eight seasons.

Kevin Grimes 10th Year at Cal Head coach Kevin Grimes enters his 10th season as the leader of the California men’s soccer program after multiple recent years of great success including an unprecedented four Pac-10 Coach of the Year awards (2002 and 2005-07). Last season, Grimes led the Golden Bears to their eighth straight NCAA Tournament appearance and along the way achieved his 100th career victory. Cal reached the third round of the NCAA College Cup after a stunning double-overtime victory at UC Santa Barbara in the second round. The Bears compiled a final record of 12-4-5 and finished second in the Pac-10 standings. In 2007, Grimes coached the Bears to their second straight conference title. Collecting a record of 12-6-2 (6-3-1 in the Pac-10), Cal reached the second round of the NCAA College Cup. Cal reached the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament in 2006, and the Bears compiled a 13-6-1 overall record and a 7-3-0 conference mark. Among the big wins during the regular season were upsets of ninth-ranked UCLA, 3-1, and of ninth-ranked Washington, 2-0, in Seattle. Grimes now owns a 105-61-20 overall record at Cal. Only three other Cal coaches have reached the 100-win plateau, and Grimes’ 105 total wins rank him fourth on the all-time list. Legendary Cal player and coach Bob DiGrazia tops the list with 202 career victories. The 2005 season featured Cal’s best postseason campaign in school history and Cal’s best winning percentage (.738, 14-4-3 record) since 1985 (.750, 16-5-1). The Bears reached the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament, surpassing the 2002 and 2006 Grimes-led squads that reached the tournament’s Sweet 16. Cal played another slate of nationally ranked teams, beating fourth-ranked UC Santa Barbara, 2-0, seventh-ranked Santa Clara, 1-0, and 16th-ranked San Diego State, 2-1. The 2004 season featured an overtime victory over No. 17 Santa Clara to advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Cal finished the season at 13-4-3 and tied for second in the Pac-10 at 4-3-1. The Bears matched a program-high nine-game unbeaten streak to start the season. Late in the season Cal had two exciting doubleovertime victories, beating Stanford, 3-2,

and edging No. 5 Washington, 1-0. In 2003, Grimes led the Bears to their third consecutive NCAA Tournament, beating San Jose State, 2-0, to advance to the second round of the tournament. Cal finished the season 11-9-2 (5-4-1, tied for 3rd Pac10). Highlights from the season included a two-game sweep of rival Stanford and a four-game winning streak that included two wins over 2003 WAC champion San Jose State. Grimes led the Bears squad to a 14-6-2 mark in 2002. He was rewarded by being named the NSCAA/adidas Division I Far West Region Coach of the Year, becoming only the third Bears coach, after DiGrazia (1977) and Bill Coupe (1983), to receive the award. Regular-season highlights in 2002 included a nine-match winning streak and 1-0 regular-season wins over eventual NCAA finalists UCLA and Stanford. More remark-

able was Cal’s 10-1-0 home record, serving notice to the country that Goldman Field was not a welcome place to play. Cal’s first postseason victory in school history came in 2002 over UC Santa Barbara, 2-1, in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The Bears finished the season ranked No. 14 in the country. Grimes had bright moments in his first season as coach, among them leading the Bears to a 1-0 victory over No. 7 UCLA. Grimes guided his team to the biggest win of 2000 when it toppled No. 3 Indiana, 2-1. Grimes, 40, came to Cal after serving as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Southern Methodist, for three seasons. During his tenure at SMU, the Mustangs recorded a 50-11-2 record and earned three NCAA tournament bids. Before joining the SMU coaching staff, Grimes spent three seasons (1995-97) as coach of the Mission Viejo (Calif.) Pateadores Soccer Club, which is one of the nation’s premier soccer clubs with numerous players competing at Division I programs across the country. He also coached the Irvine (Calif.) High School girls’ varsity team from 1995-97 and the San Juan (Calif.) Soccer Club from 1993-94. Originally from St. Louis, Mo., Grimes was a stellar high school player. As a member of the Scott Gallagher Soccer Club, he won the 1984 Under-19 McGuire Cup National Championship. In 1986, he was named a Parade All-American and Parade’s National Defender of the Year as a senior at Rosary High School. As a collegiate athlete, Grimes helped build the SMU program into one of the nation’s perennial soccer powers from 1986-89. A two-year team captain, he was a two-time first-team All-American and a two-time finalist for the Hermann Award, which is given annually to the best collegiate men’s and women’s soccer players. Grimes graduated from SMU in 1990 with a bachelor’s degree in economics. Grimes played with the U.S. National team from 1988-91, acquiring seven full international caps and appearing in more than 50 matches. He went on to play professional soccer for eight years, most recently with the Orange County Zodiac of the A-League in 1997, when he was selected to the A-League All-Star Game in Rochester, N.Y. Grimes spent part of 1996 with the former San Jose Clash of Major League Soccer. Grimes’ coaching credentials include both the U.S. Soccer Federation “A” license and the National Soccer Coaches Association of America’s Advanced National license. Grimes, his wife, Nori, and their son, Emerson, reside in the East Bay.

Previously, he spent four years as an assistant coach for Stanford (1999-2001and 2003) with three teams making NCAA College Cup appearances. During that time, he was honored with the AFLAC National Assistant Coach of the Year award. In 2001, he joined the staff of the MLS’ Los Angeles Galaxy as an assistant coach. While with the Galaxy, his team was MLS Cup champion as well as U.S. Open Cup champion. Lehrer was also an assistant coach for the ODP U-18 Region IV team, as well as the head coach for the ODP District II team. Before his coaching days began, Lehrer played collegiate soccer for UCLA and was a member of the 1985 NCAA championship team. He graduated from UCLA in 1990 with a degree in history. Lehrer played professional soccer in Europe from 1986-88. He participated in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta as a member of the Antigua high kneel canoe team.

The Lehrers reside in the East Bay with their three-year-old daughter, Macy, and yellow lab, Rio.

Henry Foulk, a nationally regarded goalkeeper at California from 1981-83, returns to his alma mater for a 10th season as the goalkeeper coach. A three-time AllPacific Conference selection, Foulk ranks third in Cal history with a lifetime 0.90 goals-against average and tied for fourth with 20 career shutouts. He also ranks among the school’s all-time best in the season record books with a 0.74 GAA in 1981 (fourth) and eight shutouts in both 1981 and ‘83 (fourth). Foulk was a member of the 1980 U.S. Olympic soccer team, which did not compete in Moscow due to the U.S. boycott of the Games. After graduating from Cal in 1984, Foulk gained many years of professional playing experience, including with the NASL’s Los Angeles Aztecs, the ASL’s Sacramento Gold and with teams in Switzerland and Germany. Raised in Europe and now a resident of Walnut Creek, Foulk also has several years of coaching experience in the Bay Area.

2008 Season in Review CAL REACHES THIRD ROUND OF NCAA TOURNAMENT

The 2008 season saw California advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament for the fourth time in school history, all four occasions under head coach Kevin Grimes. After an opening-round victory over San Francisco at Edwards Stadium, Cal trekked to UC Santa Barbara to face the Gauchos, a team that had not yet surrendered a home postseason loss. Through consistent rainfall, the Bears emerged victorious when Andrew Wiedeman scored in double overtime. Cal fell to Maryland in College Park, Md., in the third round. The Terrapins went on to win the NCAA Championship.

BEARS RECORD EIGHTH CONSECUTIVE NCAA BID

Cal played in its program-record eighth consecutive NCAA Tournament last season, advancing to the Sweet 16. Three years ago was the last time that the Bears reached the third round of the NCAA Tournament, entering that tournament as the No. 13 seed fresh off its first-ever Pac-10 title. Capturing its second straight Pac-10 title in 2007, Cal reached the second round of the NCAA College Cup. The 2005 season featured the Bears’ best postseason campaign in school history and the team’s best winning percentage (.738, 14-4-3 record) since 1985 (.750, 16-5-1). The Bears reached the quarterfinal round of the NCAA Tournament. In 2004, Cal advanced to the second round of the tourney before falling to SMU, 1-0. In 2003, the Bears reached the second round, losing to UCSB, 2-0. In 2002, Cal made its first run to the Sweet 16 and finished 14-6-2. In 2001, head coach Kevin Grimes’ second year, the Bears competed in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in five years.

FREI AND WIEDEMAN GARNER NATIONAL ACCOLADES

Andrew Wiedeman

At the beginning of the season, he was named to the MAC Hermann Trophy Award Watch List. Frei also garnered Cal’s Bob DiGrazia award as the Golden Bears’ MVP for the 2008 season. Frei tied current Cal goalkeeper coach Henry Foulk for fourth on the school’s all-time list in career shutouts in Cal’s 3-0 victory over San Francisco in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. He followed that performance with a seasonbest 11 saves against UCSB in the second round. Andrew Wiedeman earned a spot on the NSCAA/adidas All-America third team and the NSCAA Far West All-Region team. Wiedeman earned Pac-10 Player of the Week honors after a five-point weekend to open the campaign. He scored in double overtime when Cal beat UC Santa Barbara in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

GRIMES EARNS 100TH CAREER VICTORY

Kevin Grimes earned his 100th career coaching victory at Cal on Oct. 18 when the 10thranked Golden Bears topped Stanford, 1-0, at Stanford. Servando Carras-

co kicked in a rebound off a shot by Hector Jimenez in overtime to give the Bears the victory. “I have been very fortunate to coach many great players and wonderful people,” Grimes said. “I hold a special place in my heart for all the guys I’ve coached. To be able to do it at the finest institution in the world makes it even more special.”

BEARS PLACE SIX PLAYERS ON THE ALL-PAC-10 TEAM

Six Cal players earned All-Pac-10 honors for 2008, including three first-team choices. First-team honorees were Stefan Frei, Hector Jimenez and Andrew Wiedeman. Frei’s goals-against average of 0.68 at the end of the regular season was a conference best and ranked him 22nd in the nation. He also led the Pac-10 in shutouts with eight and in save percentage (.829). Jimenez was perennially ranked in the nation’s top 25 in assists and led the Pac-10 in the category for most of the season before having his season cut short due to injury. Wiedeman finished a strong sophomore campaign with a team-best 29 points (12G, 5A). He ended the season recording at least a point in the final six games and scored Cal’s last three goals of the year. Tyler Barry, Servando Carrasco and A. J. Soares were named to the second team, while Davis Paul, Pat Marion and Jacob Wilson were honorablemention selections.

EIGHT PLAYERS EARN PAC-10 ALLACADEMIC HONORS

Eight Bears earned Pac-10 All-Academic honors for the 2008 season. Servando Carrasco, Hector Jimenez and Andrew Wiedeman received second-team honors, while Imaan Kerchgani, Demitrius Omphroy, Davis Paul, A.J. Soares and Jacob Wilson were honorable-mention selections. It was the second straight year that Kerchgani was an honorable-mention selection.

iTALia 2008: Soccer & Sightseeing

C

alifornia enjoyed a trip to Italy in the summer of 2008. The Golden Bears went sightseeing in Florence, Pisa, San Marino, Milan and Como. It wasn’t a completely leisure trip for the Bears, as they played five matches against lower division Italian clubs and won three of them with one draw. In addition to the competition, Cal had a training session with a professional Italian coach.

Goldman Field at Edwards Stadium

T

he California men’s soccer team competes at one of the nation’s top collegiate facilities - Goldman Field at Edwards Stadium. The complex seats 22,000 and opened for soccer prior to the 1999 season. The field was previously the track & field infield at historic Edwards Stadium, which opened in 1932, but was converted into a regulation 70-by-115-yards natural grass soccer field for use by the Cal men’s and women’s soccer teams. In addition to the field renovations, which included a stateof-the-art drainage system, the stands, restrooms and press box also were upgraded. A scoreboard was added prior to the 2005 season, and there are plans to eventually add stadium lights, which will allow for night games. The $3.5 million spent on renovations gives Cal the ability to host NCAA championships and international matches. In July of 2002, Edwards Stadium was the site of an exhibition between two Mexican Premier Division teams - Monarchs of Morelia and Atlas of Guadalajara.

Edwards Stadium opened for the 1999-2000 academic year and is home to Cal's men's and women's soccer and track and field teams. The dualuse grass facility is named Goldman Field in honor of Richard (class of ‘41) and Rhoda (class of ‘46) Goldman, who made the $1.5 million initial gift to lead the renovation campaign.

Prior to moving to Edwards Stadium, both Cal soccer teams’ homes games were at Witter Field, which they shared with the football (practice only) and rugby teams. Their new home on the West side of campus is a short walk from the downtown Berkeley BART station and offers families a unique environment to watch top level soccer.

Strength & Conditioning

A

n integral part of Cal soccer is the strength and conditioning program. The program’s philosophy is geared towards helping each student-athlete achieve the highest level of athletic development. By teaching how all the components of strength and conditioning fit together, student-athletes understand how to maximize force production. This includes enhancement of speed, strength and flexibility, which results in improved power. Motivating, educating and maximizing athletic development is the primary focus of the Cal program. The Cal weight room at Haas Pavilion includes six Olympic platforms, more than 5,000 pounds of Olympic bars and bumper plates, and an array of aerobic and anaerobic equipment. The facility is brightly designed and overlooks Evans Diamond to the west. Cal also has a 2,000-square foot weight room in Memorial Stadium with similar Olympic equipment that offers panoramic views of the entire region, including San Francisco and the Bay. The training regimen is a year-round process that emphasizes speed, strength and flexibility. With closely monitored workouts that involve individual instruction and attention, student-athletes are taught the correct

techniques to increase their ability to perform at their peak during competition. Cal’s program stresses comprehensive training in order to improve both strength and speed. Flexibility is a key component because it is essential for proper lifting. It also improves the running mechanics needed for acceleration and deceleration, both essential for playing soccer. Athlete workouts are closely monitored

by the conditioning staff, who work in collaboration with the entire sports medicine team (doctors, athletic trainers, physical therapists, nutritionists, etc.) to ensure the health and safety of all of the studentathletes. Cal’s strength and conditioning program is a vital component linking the “full circle” of a student-athlete’s physical development.

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).

The University of California

Simply the best

T

here is no other way to aptly describe America’s top public university. There is no other way to describe one of the elite academic settings in the world – especially one that also includes one of America’s most successful athletic departments. The University of California blends the best of all worlds. Overlooking the scenic San Francisco Bay and ranked as the nation’s top public university by the U.S. News and World Report, the flagship campus of the state of California also features an athletic program that annually finishes among the leaders in the Directors’ Cup standings, which rates the overall success of America’s collegiate athletic departments. Cal attracts what many believe to be the finest applicant pool in the United States. The university features a diverse student body population. The University of California offers 351 degree programs, and 35 of the school’s 36 graduate programs are ranked among America’s Top 10. Cal’s 35 programs among the Top 10 is No. 1 among all universities in the country, as is its 32 “distinguished” programs, as rated by the National Research Council. The library is ranked third in the country, as judged by the Association of Research Libraries with 10 million volumes in 32 campus libraries. The faculty features seven Nobel Laureates, 135 members of the National Academy of Sciences, 28 MacArthur Fellows, 74 Fulbright Scholars, four Pulitzer Prize winners and more Guggenheim Fellows (359) than any other university in America.

Academic Achievement ACADEMIC GAME PLAN Comprehensive Program Focuses on Golden Bear Academic Achievement

W

hile the California football program has produced school records of six straight bowl appearances and four consecutive bowl triumphs as part of 59 wins overall in the last seven years, the mission for Cal football is: To EDUCATE and GRADUATE all football student-athletes with a meaningful degree that will support their future successes in whatever field they choose. 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 Adimchinbole 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.

Athletic Study Center

Tutorial Program

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.
