Centenary College Mission Statement Centenary College is a community of learners distinguished by a diverse student body, a dedicated faculty and staff, and stimulating educational opportunities. Centenary College is committed to a quality liberal arts and career studies education with a substantial international dimension to engage students in learning and prepare them for satisfying careers, successful lives, community service and lifelong intellectual pursuits.


Centenary College Athletics Our Athletic Philosophy

Every coach’s mission is to provide the student-athlete with a competitive program and the opportunity to achieve excellence individually or as part of a team. The phrase “the teaching coach,” committed to the students, best describes our philosophy while maintaining a strong academic profile. As coaches, we serve as both educators and leaders. Centenary’s goal is to maximize the human potential of our student-athletes. Our holistic approach stresses the fundamentals of the games we play as well as the values of responsibility, discipline, and commitment. We know that these principles will translate into victories, but more importantly, they will develop young people with character. Those who compete and graduate become true champions, for they will understand what it means to be committed to excellence.

About Our Athletic Program

At Centenary College we nurture and encourage true competitive integrity. Our school adheres to a strict code of conduct from the recruiting process all the way to the NCAA Championships. Our coaches, administrators and staff members all take an active role in monitoring and insuring our compliance with all NCAA, Conference and College regulations. Centenary sponsors 13 men’s and women’s teams at the Division III level, and our Athletic Department continues to grow. We remain committed to developing our Athletic Department into one of the best small-college programs in the country. With the help of our dedicated coaches, staff and student-athletes we can see that dream come to reality. As a student-athlete, we will ask you to represent the College’s intercollegiate athletics program both on and off the field with integrity, professionalism and competitiveness. During your years at Centenary you will be asked to make sacrifices, but these sacrifices will be well rewarded by relationships and memories that will stay with you for a lifetime.

Athletic Training and Conditioning The Sports Medicine program at Centenary College provides students with an opportunity to participate in intercollegiate athletics in the safest and healthiest way possible. A well-rounded program for student-athletes directed toward the prevention, evaluation, management and rehabilitation of athletic injuries is enhanced by team physicial Dr. Mike Kelly and orthopedic surgeons Dr. Louis Rizio and Dr. Robert A Defalco. The Athletic Training staff includes Head Athletic Trainer Karin Damon, Associate Athletic Trainer Kevin Davies, and Assistant Athletic Trainer Dana Baffuto. The fitness center, located in the John M. Reeves Student Recreation Center, gives Centenary students and student-athletes a safe workout environment where they can improve their agility, speed, flexibility, strength and conditioning. Using the fitness center gives each athlete a chance to improve their overall fitness, therefore making them more competitive in their sport of choice. In 2006, the fitness center was expanded to include a separate cardio room as well as the weight machine and free weight areas. The renovation also brought in brand new state-of-the-art strength and fitness equipment that should fill all our student-athlete’s seasonal fitness needs.

Twomey joins the Cyclones after a four-year coaching career at Stevens Institute of

Technology where he served as the Associate Head Men’s Basketball Coach.

During his time at Stevens, Twomey helped guide the team to a 73-37overall record including a 2011 Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) Championship while developing nine All-Conference and three All-Region student-athletes. As Associate Head Coach, Twomey was responsible for recruiting, practice planning, game preparation, and individual skill development while also serving as a building supervisor, physical education instructor, and intramural director along the way. As the recruiting coordinator, Twomey helped bring in the team’s leading scorer, Sheldon Jones, a Second-Team All-Conference selection in his sophomore year and First-Team All-Conference selection his junior year. This past season, Twomey helped lead Stevens to a 20-8 overall record and an ECAC semi-final appearance. During the 2010-11 season, Twomey and his staff were named the Empire 8 Conference Staff of the year and was given the Schoenfeld Award in 2008-09, given by N.J. officials for sportsmanship in the state of N.J.


Prior to working at Stevens, Twomey served as the Game Scout Video Coordinator for the NBA, analyzing and editing game film for the NBA, NBDL, and WNBA and was selected to analyze the FIBA America’s Championships for the United States men’s basketball team. Twomey also has experience working as the acting Sports Information Director and Special Assistant to the Director of Athletics for Mount Saint Mary College where he received a degree in business administration in 2004. As a player, Twomey played professionally for Merry Monk Ballina and the Limerick Lions in the Irish Super League, as well as the Carolina Thunder in the American Basketball Association. During his time playing for Mount Saint Mary College, Twomey was named a National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Division III Regional All-Star, Division III News All-American Honorable Mention honoree, Skyline Conference Player of the Year, and two-time ECAC and Metro Writers Basketball Association selection. Serving as a captain his junior and senior seasons, Twomey became the All-Time leading scorer at Mount Saint Mary College while finishing fifth All-Time in Division III in three pointers made (362) and 12th All-Time in three-pointers per game (3.32).


Sean Stolzenthaler joins the men’s basketball coaching staff after coaching at Allentown High School (N.J.), serving as the Assistant Varsity Coach and Head Coach of the JV squad.

Stolzenthaler was a four year starting point guard at Catholic University from 2005-09 leading the Landmark Conference in assists and assist-to-turnover ratio in his junior and senior seasons. Stolzenthaler continued his playing career in 2010 playing on the USA Select Pro Basketball Tour Team playing in Hungary, Finland, and England. He has also worked basketball camps including the Hoop Group and the Pocono Invitational Camp coaching some of the top middle and high school players on the East Coast. In addition, Stolzenthaler has coached with the Mid-Jersey Mavericks AAU team.


Season Preview A fresh start is exactly what the Centenary College men’s basketball team is looking forward to this year as they look to completely turn around a program that has missed the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) playoffs by only a single-game for the last two years. With newly appointed Head Coach Brendan Twomey leading the squad this season in his first time in the role, the Cyclones are looking forward to a new start with four additions to the eleven members returning from last season. “The guys have been working really hard this pre-season and I look forward to working with them this season. I understand that playing for a new coach is a tough process, but so far the guys have done everything I’ve asked and seem eager to learn” said Twomey on his new team. The Cyclones have been chosen to finish eighth in the conference this year according to the 2012-13 CSAC Men’s Basketball Pre-Season Coaches Poll after finishing the 2011-12 season with a final 12-13 record including an 8-10 conference mark. Led behind senior captains Max Hughes (Nazareth, Pa., Notre Dame Green Pond) and Warren Murphy (Ridgefield Park, NJ, Ridgefield Park), the 2012-13 squad views the eighth place position as a challenge to prove to the CSAC that they are a much stronger team than they may appear to be. A 2011-12 Second Team All-Conference selection and two-time All-Tournament Team honoree, Murphy looks to help lead the Cyclones at the top of the key this year after finishing last season with 102 assists and 124 rebounds while averaging 27.8 minutes and a team-high 16 points per game.


Season Preview Joining Murphy as a co-captain will be Hughes who led last year’s squad averaging 29.4 minutes per game with a team-high 57 made three-pointers for an average 12.7 points a game for the Cyclones. Along with his work on the court, Hughes serves as a leader in the classroom as he was named a 2011-12 NABC Honors Court Recipient and Winter FAR/FAB Scholar-Athlete. Aside from the two seniors, the Cyclones will be returning nine other members of last year’s squad who are all ready for a chance at the CSAC Tournament, a feat that has just slipped out of reach for two consecutive years. The returning junior class is led by Andy Charles (West Orange, NJ, Montclair) and Kyle Malavasi (Asbury, NJ, North Hunterdon) who served as pivotal starters for the Cyclones last season. Charles finished the 2011-12 season averaging 24.2 minutes while recording a team-high 42 steals as well as 32 blocks and 141 rebounds and still posed a threat outside the perimeter as he drained 24 three-pointers for the Cyclones. Malavasi returns to the Cyclones squad after having to miss half the season last year with an injury, but averaged 18.9 minutes while recording 83 points in his 14 games played for the Cyclones and looks to be an impact player with a healthy season ahead of him. Also returning in the junior class is 6-7 forward Gabe Cheavers (Howell, NJ, Howell) who is looking to make his presence known in the paint after a team-high 39 block season last year while recording 105 rebounds and 137 points in his 25 games for the Cyclones.


Season Preview Rounding out the junior returning class are Alex Bernhard (Mertztown, PA, West-Mont Christian Academy), Kevin Peters (Barnegat, NJ, Barnegat), and Tim Brix (Monroe Township, NJ, Monroe) who although did not see much playing time last season, hope to step up this year as key bench players for Coach Twomey in tight situations. The Cyclones are also returning two key sophomores from last year’s squad in Djovan Beausejour (Doylestown, PA, Central Bucks East) and Kenneth Brown (Endicott, NY, Union Endicott) who have been continually developing since coming in last November as freshmen. In his first season as a head coach, Twomey will have four new members to the 2012-13 squad in junior Joshua Case (Catasauqua, Pa., Catasauqua), sophomore Karim Ahmad (Newark, North 13th Street), and freshmen Clayton Roker (New City, N.Y., Clarkstown South)and Kevin Johnson (Montgomery, N.J., Montgomery). Case looks to add some additional height to the team after four years of playing basketball at Catasauqua High School where he was named a two-time First Team All-League member and 1,000 point scorer. Despite his deceptive 5-8 frame, Ahmad adds a tremendous amount of speed to the Cyclones team after a four-year playing career at North 13th Street High School where he was named First team All-Conference and the program’s assist leader.


Season Preview Roker and Johnson will be joining the Cyclones this season as the only two freshmen on the team but are hoping to serve as a strong option for Coach Twomey this year. Looking forward to the 2012-13 season, Coach Twomey and the Cyclones will open at home with the second annual Comfort Inn Tip-Off Tournament as they host William Paterson University, DeSales University, and Stevens Institute of Technology in a tough start to a new year. Coming out of the two-day tournament, the Cyclones are set to play Misericordia University and TCNJ before kicking off conference action on the road against Marywood University. The Pacers were picked only one point ahead of the Cyclones in the pre-season poll this year as they took seventh place despite a worse finish in the 2011-12 season. After a game on the road against Cairn University, the Cyclones return home to take on pre-season favorite and three-time defending CSAC champion Cabrini Cavaliers on Dec. 3rd. After a pair of conference games later that week, the Cyclones have two weeks without a game due to finals before heading to Camden, N.J. to take on Rutgers-Camden on December 22nd. Just after Christmas, the Cyclones will be heading out to Center Valley, Pa. to compete in the 2012 DeSales Tournament before returning home to round out the rest of conference play on their quest for a spot in the 2012-13 CSAC playoffs. The end of the season will be no easy task for the Cyclones however as they round out their schedule with third-seeded Keystone College and fourth-seeded Neumann University who will be trying to keep the Cyclones from making the playoffs for their third consecutive year. The season will be a big test for the new head coach, but Twomey believes he is ready for the task thanks to the help of his assistants Sean Stolzenthaler and Andrew Feeley.

Centenary College Turf Fund “It is time to take Cyclone Athletics to the next level.” That was the message of WPLJ broadcaster Joe Nolan at the official launch of The Athletic Turf Field Project on January 29, 2011. Through The Cyclone Athletic Fund, Centenary plans to construct a new artificial turf field that will serve the Men’s and Women’s Soccer and Lacrosse teams as well as Baseball. The new field, which can even be used in inclement weather, will help propel the teams to greater levels of competition and national recognition.

Colonial States Athletic Conference One Neumann Drive -- Aston, PA -- 19014 -- www.csacsports.org

About the CSAC

The Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) – formerly known as the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference (PAC) – was formed to meet the needs of small, private, four-year colleges in eastern Pennsylvania. As the institutions’ athletic programs continued to grow, it became increasingly necessary to address individual and collective concerns about intercollegiate athletics.

In November 1991, 10 charter member institutions with similar philosophies aligned to provide athletic competition for student-athletes from institutions with similar philosophies. The conference was formed to collectively recognize the importance of intercollegiate athletics in an educational setting and to increase institutional support without compromising academic integrity. These charter members voted unanimously to name the new conference the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference (PAC), and on February 3, 1992, a press conference was held at Philadelphia’s Veteran’s Stadium to officially announce the formation of the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference (PAC), with competition to begin in the 1992-1993 academic year. The first Constitution was drafted in June 1992 and in April 1993, the conference was granted Affiliate Membership in the NCAA. In its inaugural year, the conference sponsored 12 championships; today, the CSAC sponsors 17 championships in 15 sports. The conference qualifies and maintains Automatic Qualifiers (AQs) in 13 sports, sending the conference champion to NCAA Championships in Field Hockey, Men’s and Women’s Soccer, Women’s Volleyball, Men’s and Women’s Basketball, Baseball, Men’s Golf, Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse, Softball and Men’s and Women’s Tennis.

Members of the CSAC wholly embrace the NCAA Division III “student first” philosophy by ensuring that institutions place the overall educational experience and successful completion of academic programs above all else. For this reason, student-athletes are treated no differently than any member of the student population. CSAC members embrace gender equity among student-athletes and are committed to providing athletics programs that are equitable for both genders.

The CSAC is also wholly dedicated to service in the community, as the league has participated in such initiatives as Habitat for Humanity and the Eastern Polar Plunge, sponsored by the PA Special Olympics. Each CSAC member school also participates in various service initiatives both campus-wide and in their communities.
