key. James DelGreco helped lead his team to a Pennsylvania state championship game two years in a row, winning once. Chris Hunkele is, “a big strong kid that knows how to play,” believes Laskey. The incoming class also boasts a pair of all-state selections from outside of Pennsylvania. Russell Bootwright was a second-team all-state selection in Virginia while Kyle Ransom was voted first-team all state by the West Virginia Sportswriters. Rounding out the list is Andrew Sikora who led his high school team in scoring all four years. A familiar face will be joining Laskey on the sideline this year as Emedin Sabic returns to the men’s program after serving as an assistant for the women’s team for the past three seasons. Sabic, who played for Laskey at Cal U, has already earned the respect and trust of his mentor, “I have a lot of respect for his knowledge of the game and his ability to coach. He has great methodology in what he does and I respect his opinion. He will have a major influence on the team.” Having a team with so much experience in the back and inexperience up front, Laskey’s philosophy for the 2010 campaign will be slightly different from the past as he says, “We have to play not to give up goals. If you are defending well, you will create opportunities and score.”

2010 2010 PREVIEW PREVIEW

After having posted doubledigit win totals in 10 of the past 12 seasons, California University of Pennsylvania will have a vastly different look in 2010. The Vulcans look to replace each of their top five scorers from last season, a group that includes three All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) West performers. “We’re optimistic, even though we lost a lot,” said 25th-year head coach Dennis Laskey. “We have quality seniors and juniors ready to step in and leave their mark on our program.” The experience of this team will be in the defensemen and the goalkeepers. Two-thirds of the starting defensemen from a year ago are back as junior Mike Kalas and senior Joe Friedman return. Kalas has made 42 straight starts to begin his career at Cal U and was named ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District in 2009. Friedman has made 38 starts over the past two seasons for the Vulcans. The top two goalkeepers are also back as Derek Yobbi and Charlie Dagnal return for their senior seasons. Yobbi finished his junior season with a 8-4-0 record and a 1.58 goals- against average (GAA) while Dagnal finished 4-3-0 with a 2.42 GAA. “Both Yobbi and Dagnal are as good as anybody in the conference,” said Laskey. Yobbi is on pace to leave as the program’s alltime leader in saves and GAA. Youth will be served on attack for the Vulcans as Laskey will turn to several youngsters and newcomers to provide the offense. Returners expected to contribute on offense include senior Spencer Crider, junior Brady Sanders and sophomores Ryan Grindle Nemanja Visekruna. “Ryan started a lot of games for us last year and this could be his year to break through. He can score goals,” commented Laskey. Junior Mikey Juricich will be counted on to be a ballwinner in the central midfield and asked to set things up for the offense. Another returner that will be counted on is sophomore Chris Moehler. “Chris is an all-around scorer,” said Laskey. “He can be a goal scorer or an assist guy.” A lot of fresh faces will be seen attacking for the Vulcans as well, with several newcomers being called upon to contribute right away. Gaby Deller-Borgono, “has the ability to score goals,” said Las-

DENNIS LASKEY 25th Year at Cal U laskey@calu.edu The longest tenured California University of Pennsylvania head coach, Dennis Laskey enters his 25th season (20th consecutive) at the helm of the men’s soccer program in 2010. He ranks 18th nationally among active head coach in NCAA Division II in career victories. Laskey has been with the Vulcans for almost the entire 27 years of the program, dating back to the inaugural season of 1984. During his time at Cal U, he holds a 224-208-33 overall record (.517) with five appearances in the PSAC Championship Game and two berths in the NCAA Tournament. Behind an improbable late-season surge in 2008, Cal U won the PSAC West title and claimed the program’s first-ever PSAC Tournament Championship. The Vulcans also garnered a berth to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2004. In addition to his 25 years with the men’s program, Laskey was also instrumental in the creation of the women’s soccer program at Cal U. He served as the first head coach for the women’s program in 1990 and coached both the men’s and women’s soccer teams from 1991-2001. A native of nearby Dunlevy, Pa., he has coached five players that were inducted into the Cal U Athletic Hall of Fame. Nicholas Addlery, who plays professionally, and Audrey

Dawson were both inducted into the Cal U Athletic Hall of Fame in 2008. L a s k e y played in the Pennsylvania West Soccer League for more than four decades and was a member of the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) National Championship team in 2005. Two years later, he was inducted into the MidMon Valley Sports Hall of Fame. Laskey was a four-year starting defender at Alderson-Broaddus and earned honorable mention from the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC). Following his time at A-B, he joined the U.S. Navy in 1972 and continued his playing career throughout Europe for the U.S. Navy Phiblant team stationed in the Mediterranean. Laskey, who finished his degree at Cal U after his tour of duty, entered the coaching ranks as head coach at Charleroi High School from 1978-83. He also served as the co-founder and first president of the Mon Valley Youth Soccer Association. He moved to the collegiate game in 1983 working with the Vulcan men’s soccer team on the club level before the program moved to the NCAA level in 1984. He coached Cal U for five seasons, winning three-straight West Penn Intercollegiate Soccer conference titles (198688) that included NCAA Division I, II, III and NAIA teams. In 1989, he moved back to the scholastic level coaching Upper St. Clair High School to a pair of WPIAL titles before returning back to Cal U to start the women’s soccer program. Laskey, who holds a master’s degree in Sport Management and a post-baccalaureate degree in athletic administration from Cal U, resides in Charleroi, Pa., with his wife Jeanne. The couple has three children, Deni Lynn, Deiter and Marissa.

During his playing career, the Vulcans compiled 45 victories and reached the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Championship Game three-straight years. As a sophomore in 2004, the Vulcans qualified for the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history. The following year, Cal U set a school record with 14 wins. Sabic moved to Germany in 1991 and played club soccer in Europe until his family moved to the United States in 1999. He attended Cathedral Prep in Erie, Pa., and helped lead the Ramblers to a state championship in 2001. He was a three-time, first-team all-metro and firstteam all-district selection while playing at Prep. Sabic earned his undergraduate degree in business administration from Cal U in 2007 and completed his master’s degree in 2008.

A year after winning its first-ever PSAC Championship, Cal U finished 12-7-0 overall record and in third place in the PSAC West standings with a 3-5-0 divisional mark.

HISTORY

ABOUT CAL U

O

riginating in 1951 to administer and promote men’s athletics, the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference has evolved into one of the NCAA’s most heralded intercollegiate conferences. The first major step came in 1977, when based on a growing interest, the league reorganized to provide a structure for its women’s programs. Only three years later, lacking a standard competitive division, league voted to reclassify the entire conference to NCAA Division II. The most recent enhancement came during the 2008-09 academic year when the PSAC expanded for the first time in its rich history, adding full-time members Gannon University and Mercyhurst College, and associate member Long Island University-C.W. Post. The membership now consists of 16 full-time institutions and the one associate. All of the league’s full-time members are located within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, which makes the PSAC the largest one-state conference in the NCAA. The league has also grown to share the distinctions as: The largest conference in Division II, the largest footballplaying conference in the NCAA, and, with 23, the conference that sponsors the most championships at the Division II level. Highly competitive on a regional and national level, PSAC schools annually combine to send nearly one-third of its teams into NCAA postseason play. Ultimately, the membership’s success has yielded 43 NCAA team and 238 individual title winners.

While proud of its athletic accomplishments, the league also has evolved into one of Division II’s finest from an academic standpoint. Today, nearly one-third of the PSAC’s estimated 6,200 participants are honored each year as “ScholarAthletes” for maintaining a gradepoint average of 3.25 or better - a total that has nearly doubled since PSAC Scholar-Athletes were first recognized in the mid-1990s. Although all 16 current institutions are members of Division II, eight league schools also compete at the Division I level in select sports. PSAC schools enroll over 125,000 students and claim over 709,000 alumni, including 482,000 who reside in Pennsylvania. The PSAC is governed by the presidents of the 16 member institutions. It employs a commissioner, an associate, assistant commissioners and a director of media relations at its headquarters in Lock Haven, Pa.

elcome to California University of Pennsylvania and another exciting season of Vulcan soccer. I am confident that Coach Dennis Laskey, his staff and the players will continue to build upon the men’s soccer tradition and make this a year to remember. This was a year of remarkable achievements at Cal U. In the past 12 months our academic offerings have been strengthened and expanded. Our beautiful campus continues to evolve, and our enrollment continues to grow. Our athletic teams won statewide and regional titles. Cal U finished with an impressive No. 2 national ranking in the final

standings of the 2009-10 Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup. This second place-finish is the highest by a PSAC school since the Directors’ Cup was initiated prior to the 1995-96 academic year. The Vulcans are the only PSAC school to break into the top five of the standings and the only school to post three-straight Top 10 finishes. We are very proud of our student-athletes, coaches and many individuals behind the scenes who are responsible for this magnificent accomplishment. I am particularly proud of our student-athletes who perform well not only on the field of play, but also in the classroom. During the 2009-10 academic year, a total of 205 Cal U student athletes, were named to the Spring 2010 edition of the Vulcan Athletic Director Honor Roll. For the eighth-consecutive semester, Cal U athletic programs compiled a cumulative gradepoint average of 3.00 or higher. In addition, a combined 141 studentathletes from Cal U representing all sports (fall, winter and spring) were named PSAC Scholar-Athletes for the 2009-10 academic year. Our athletes have put in hundreds of hours of practice, and their hard work and dedication make them winners regardless of the score. The same can be said of the coaching staff, whose devotion to their sport and their players is an inspiration.

On May 19, 1992, Dr. Angelo Armenti, Jr. was appointed by the Board of Governors of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education as the sixth president of California University of Pennsylvania, founded in 1852. He holds a B.S. degree in Physics from Villanova University, and MA and Ph.D. degrees from Temple University in special and general relativity, respectively. He had a distinguished 20-year career at Villanova University prior to becoming president of California University. At Villanova he served as professor of physics, chair of the department of physics, Dean of University College, and Director of Planning. In addition to scholarly publications in scientific journals, Dr. Armenti received the Lindback Foundation Award for Distinguished Teaching in 1978, and was named an American Council on Education (ACE) Fellow in 1992, one of only thirtytwo individuals selected nationally for this recognition. His book, The Physics of Sports, commissioned by the American Institute of Physics, remains in print since its initial publication in 1992. Since Dr. Armenti’s arrival at California University in 1992, applications have increased by 90%; average SATs have increased by 113 points; FTE enrollments have increased by 43%; and fouryear graduation rates have increased by 94%. Many new academic programs have been initiated including: Master of Social Work (MSW); Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT); Master of Science in Multi-Media President & Mrs. Armenti Technology; Physical

The mission of Cal U is to build character and build careers. While the formal part of the education occurs in classrooms, laboratories, and internship sites, the other part of a college education takes place in residence halls, the Natali Student Union and in various sport venues, such as Roadman Park. Men’s Soccer and our other athletic programs provide students with an experience that helps them to learn and to grow in ways that will benefit them the rest of their lives. Teamwork is important not only on the field, but in the boardroom, the operating room and in the classroom. Many of our alumni who were student-athletes during their time here have distinguished themselves in endeavors far removed from their sport, but they have carried with them the important life lessons they have learned on the field and from their coaches, their teammates, and even their opponents. I hope that you enjoy the 2010 season and that you will support all of these young athletes enthusiastically.

Angelo Armenti, Jr. President

Therapy Assistant; Sports Management; Graphic Design, Computer Engineering Technology, Criminal Justice, Legal Studies, Music Technology and Nursing Administration. Other University accomplishments since his arrival as president include: creation of an Athletic Hall of Fame; winning the Dixon Trophy as well as three National championships (two in women’s softball and one in women’s basketball); a successfully completed $13 million (first ever) capital campaign; a second capital campaign that is currently on schedule to reach its $35 million goal; a twenty-fold increase in endowment funds; the adoption by the University of the core values of Integrity, Civility, and Responsibility; the adoption of a University Bill of Rights and Responsibilities; the creation of the University Forum—a new governance structure; adoption of a new general education curriculum; implementation of a $200 million master plan, including: the building of the Eberly Science and Technology Center, the Kara Alumni House, the Duda Classroom Building, a 6,000 seat Convocation Center, and six modern new residence halls; the renovation or expansion of numerous other buildings on campus; and the creation of Global Online, the University’s internet-based outreach to some 2,000 students from around the world. Dr. Armenti has been active with the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, and has served as Campaign Chair and President of the Mon Valley United Way. In 2001 he became a Certified Covey Trainer on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. He is a member of the board of directors of the Washington County Redevelopment Authority, a member of the board of directors of the Greater Pittsburgh council of Boy Scouts of America, and Chair of the Commission of Presidents of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.
