2011-12 Vikings

2011-12 women’s season preview After setting a record for most wins (15) in a season last year and losing just four members of that team, expectations are again very high for the CSU women’s swimming and diving team. The team broke eight league and 10 school records at the 2010-11 Horizon League Championships and the key contributors are all back. Freestyle Seven program freestyle records - including three relays - fell in 2010-11. Alice Sommerville set the 50 free (23.06) record in the first leg of the 200 league record-setting free relay (1:31.63) at the League Championships. Carys Behn set new league times in the 100 (50.23) and 200 (1:48.05) while Joanna Olsson broke the school record in the 500 free (4:53.56). That trio will pair with Gretchen Hestley (200 1:52.78), Alexandra Johansson (50: 23.71) and Christine Kopacko (50: 23.66) to highlight the free events and chase after the three Horizon League records (200 free relay, 400 free relay: 3:23.89 and 800 free relay: 7:27.75) records the team set at the League Championships. Ashley Rossi is a key contributor in the distance events, finishing with the seventh best time in CSU history in the 1,000 free (10:37.17) and second in the 1,650 free (17:37.10) Of all the top-10 times that were set in 201011, the freestyle events figure to be some of the strongest swam by the Vikings in 2011-12 and many other records seem in grave danger.

Butterfly Behn, Johansson, Olsson and Sommerville will headline the fly events in 2011-12. Sommerville paced the team in the 50 fly (25.18) and 100 fly (55.02) with Johansson and Behn second and third, respectively, on the team in both events. Olsson is strong in the 200 fly (2:02.56) while Hannah Morris (200: 2:14.97) and Emily Splain (200: 2:09.43) add depth and experience. Newcomer Megan Splain joins her sister as one of the talented fly swimmers on the Viking roster. Breaststroke Emily Simard, Allison Pallija and Rachel Arzadon handle the bulk of the load in the breast events. Alice Sommerville swam the fastest 50 (29.09) and 100 (1:04.25), but the others were consistent in the breast events. Simard was second on the team in the 100 breast (1:05.36) while Pallija (1:05.95) and Arzadon (1:06.38) weren’t far behind. The breast events are a place to look for other swimmers to try their hand, and the freshmen could get into the mix. Backstroke Alexandra Johansson swam the fastest 100 back (56.16) in school history as a freshman, a time that was almost a full second faster than the prior record. She figures to only get better with time. Her classmate Nikki Kolis had times that put her in the top-10 in program history in the 100 back (58.29) and 200 back (2:07.41).

Those two were just freshmen last year, and a new pair of rookies in Erin Bender and Rachel Grove are added to add young talent in the back events. Also returning are Hannah Morris, Ashley Rossi and Emily Splain. Those three all had topfive times on the 2010-11 team in the 100 and 200 backstroke events. Individual Medley In each of the last two seasons, Joanna Olsson set the school record in both the 200 (2:03.94) and 400 (4:19.76) individual medley events, and is expected to challenge those times this season. Gretchen Hestley’s 2:05.81 ranks second in program history behind Olsson and she figures to improve. Three freshmen - Erin Bender, Megan Splain and Liz Tamas - join the IM bunch, grouping with Arzadon, the Pallija sisters and Simard. Diving After qualifying for the NCAA Zone Diving Championships for the second consecutive year, senior Kacey Cummings is primed for her final year with the Vikings. She was named the Horizon League ‘Diver of the Year’ after winning the 1-meter (262.75) and placing third in the 3-meter (279.85) at the Horizon League Championships last season and will be looking to build on her past successes. Kathleen Chandler and Alexandra DiMasso were both impressive last year as freshman and can build on their first year competing at the collegiate level. Senior Liz Victor rounds out the group.

2011-12 Swimming & Diving


2011-12 Vikings

2011-12 men’s season preview It may be a different year, but the goal for the CSU men’s swimming and diving team has remained the same: to win the Horizon League Championship. Freestyle Three Vikings turned in a performance in the 50 free that put them in the top-10 in CSU history, led by Justin Hill (20.12) who swam his record time in a relay. Berry Thompson (20.49) and Alex Lewis (20.53) were also close to the top of the list while both excelled in the 100 free. Thompson set the school record (44.07) and Lewis had the eighth best time (45.54) in the 100. Those three will grab a fourth and challenge for the relay record they set in the 200 free last year. They were also just off the pace in the 400 free relay, and provide a serious threat this year. Graham Thoresen recorded two top-10 times in the 500 free (4:31.98) and 1,000 free (9:30.55). Alex Cohara was a consistent top-five performer on the team in a wide array of free events and can lend a hand, as can Pieter Ritz and Michael Dopuch. Butterfly Alex Lewis and Justin Kermack are the most notable performers in the fly events. Kermack broke the school record in the 200 (1:48.40) and Lewis recorded the fourth best time in school history in the 100 fly (48.96). Berry Thompson’s 48.59 in the 100 fly was 10th best in school history and Travis Lombardozzi came on strong at the end of the season and should keep it going in 2011-12.

Add Brad Bielak and Colin Hanner to the group and the Vikings have some nice depth in the fly events. Breaststroke Brian Ferro was terrific in his rookie season, leading the team in the 50 (27.02), 100 (56.77) and 200 (2:02.34). Pedrom Kheirandish came on strong at the end of the season and his times at the Time Trial Meet put him second on the team in the 100 (57.55) and 200 (2:07.92). If he can carry the momentum into 2011-12, he could be a big boost to the Vikings efforts in the breast events. Sophomore Mason Allen (100: 1:00.19) and freshman Nathan Grant round out the group in the breast events. Backstroke Al Shillito was stellar in the back events, turning in the fifth best time in school history in the 100 (50.82) and the fourth quickest 200 (1:49.66) in Cleveland State history. Colin Hanner was second on the team in the 50 (24.45), 100 (51.91) and 200 (1:52.76). Ryan Blankenship was just behind Hanner, touching the wall in 1:52.86 in the 200 at the Horizon League Championships. The coaches are high on freshman Jon Querciagrossa, but also have more experienced swimmers like Justin Hill (50: 24.85, 100: 52.39) and Matt Falgoust (50: 25.84, 100: 52.78) at their disposal.

Individual Medley As a freshman, Justin Kermack was brilliant in the IM events, earning the seventh best time in school history in the 200 (1:51.97) and third quickest 400 (3:59.05). Kermack’s classmate Brian Ferro’s 1:52.31 in the 200 was ninth best in program history while he was also clocked at 4:08.17 in the 400. Alex Cohara and Graham Thoresen add depth to the IM events, and Querciagrossa figures to be in the mix, especially as the season progresses. Diving Diving coach Rich Karban is lucky to have a pair of seniors in Josh Gonzalez and Matt DiMasso to compete this season, but also to tutor two freshmen with high ceilings. Gonzalez, the ‘Diver of the Meet’ at the 2010 Horizon League Championships leads the diving group that is strong. He qualified for the NCAA Zone Diving Championships for the second consecutive season last year and has a very good chance to repeat that accomplishment for the third time in his career. Matt DiMasso was good enough to garner Horizon League ‘Diver of the Week’ honors last season. His 3-meter (283.60) at the City College Meet was a new career best and he had a solid junior campaign. James Metzger was steady as a freshman last season and is joined by freshmen Tom Blankenship and Sean Tyrrell this year as the diving team looks to the future after Gonzalez and DiMasso are lost to graduation.

Front Row (l-r): Sean Tyrrell, Justin Kermack, Pedrom Kheirandish, Brad Bielak, Tony Pavlosky, Matt DiMasso, Jon Querciagrossa, Graham Thoresen, Ryan Blankenship, Josh Gonzalez, diving coach Rich Karban, assistant coach April Woo. 2011-12 Swimming & Diving

2011-12 Vikings

2010-11 Season IN REVIEW TEAM BREAKS PROGRAM WIN RECORD: A 137-106 win over UIC gave the women’s swimming and diving team 15 dual meet wins on the season, a new record. The team broke the previous mark of 14, set by the 2009-10 squad. The 15 wins are the most in Cleveland State swimming history by either the men or women, as the men’s record for most wins in a season is 14, set by the 1996-97 team and equalled in the 2009-10 campaign. It also gave the women’s team back-to-back winning seasons for the first time since having four straight winning years from 1986-87 to 1989-90. CSU went 9-3, 8-6, 8-5 and 8-7 in those seasons, respectively. This was also the first time the women have ever finished consecutive seasons with double digit wins. RECORD-SETTING LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIPS: The Cleveland State women’s swimming and diving team finished its season with one of the most impressive conference championship performances in program history, breaking eight conference and 10 CSU records at the Horizon League Swimming and Diving Championships. Carys Behn went undefeated at the championships, winning three individual races, four relays and setting six Horizon League records. The junior broke records in the 200 free (1:31.67), 400 free (3:23.89), 800 free (7:27.75) and 200 medley (1:41.77) relays and also set new Horizon League marks in the 100 free (50.23) and 200 free (1:48.05). Behn also won the 500 free in 4:53.89, the second fastest time in CSU history. Her performance earned her the title of women’s co-performer of the meet, an honor she shared with Emily McClellan of Milwaukee. Alice Sommerville and Joanna Olsson set the other two conference records at the championships. Sommerville, a member of the record-setting 200 free, 200 medley and 400 free relay teams, set a new mark in the 50 free as the leadoff swimmer in the 200 free relay (23.06). Olsson, who also was on the 400 and 800 relay teams, broke the league record in the 400 IM, winning the race in 4:19.76. Olsson additionally broke the CSU record in the 200 IM (2:03.94) and combined with Sommerville to lead the 400 medley relay team to a 3:46.77 finish, the best in program history. CLEVELAND STATE TAKES THIRD: The Vikings finished the championships in third place with a team score of 625.5. Green Bay won the meet with a score of 788.5, more than 100 points better than second place Milwaukee (685). CUMMINGS TABBED DIVER OF THE YEAR: Kacey Cummings earned the honor of Horizon League Diver of the Year after the junior came from behind to win the 1-meter dive at the league championships, finishing with 263.75 points. She also scored 279.85 in the 3-meter dive, good for third place. 2011-12 Swimming & Diving

The Vikings set a program record with 15 dual meet victories in the 2010-11 campaign. ...AND QUALIFIES FOR ZONES: For the second consecutive year Kacey Cummings competed in the NCAA Zone Diving Championships after posting qualifying scores in both the 1-meter and 3-meter events. Cummings finished the regular season as the Horizon League’s leader in the 1-meter dive (281.70) while posting the third-best score in the 3-meter dive (296.00). BEHN EARNS ALL-AMERICAN HONORS: Following one of the best individual performances in Horizon League Championship history, junior Carys Behn was recognized for her fantastic season by her inclusion on the Mid-Major All-American honorable mention team by CollegeSwimming.com. In addition to winning seven races and setting six league records at the championships, Behn won nine individual races during the regular season and had the league’s top time in the 200 free (1:50.59). WOMEN CRACK MID-MAJOR POLL: For the first time in program history the Cleveland State women’s swimming and diving team appeared in the College Swimming Coaches Association of America/CollegeSwimming.com Mid-Major Division I poll. In the Nov. 17 poll the Vikings were ranked 15th with a composite score of 227.4 after beginning the season with an impressive 11-1 dual meet record. The Vikings were one of only two Horizon League teams ranked in the poll, with Milwaukee placing just ahead of CSU at 14th with a score of 228.2. While CSU ended the season outside of the poll’s top 25, the Vikings did earn a spot among the honorable mentions, finishing with the 29th best score in the country (238.6). The Mid-Major rankings use an objective point system to compare teams’ relative strength in a traditional dual meet lineup as submitted by participating teams. The ranking is available to those institutions that a) are not members of a BCS conference or Mountain West Conference, or b) provide fewer than half of the allowable scholarships under NCAA rules. www.csuvikings.com

VIKINGS EARN ACADEMIC ACCOLADES: In addition to being superb in the water, the women’s swimming and diving team proved it was equally good in the classroom, earning the 12th highest team GPA in the nation among Division I schools during the fall 2010 semester. The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) recognized the Cleveland State women’s swimming and diving team for their success in the classroom during the 2010-11 season when they presented the team with the CSCAA’s Team Scholar All-America Award. ...WITH FOUR TABBED ACADEMIC ALL-LEAGUE: Four members of the women’s team were singled out for their excellent efforts in the classroom as well as in the pool. Carys Behn, Kacey Cummings, Joanna Olsson and Alice Sommerville all earned a spot on the league’s Academic All-League Team in 2010-11. Behn won 12 individual races and broke six Horizon League records. Cummings was tabbed the league ‘Diver of the Year’ and Olsson set six school records. Sommerville shattered seven program records. CSU SENDS TWO TO NATIONALS: Alice Sommerville and Joanna Olsson qualified for the USA Swimming National Championships, held Dec. 2-4, 2010 in Columbus, Ohio. Competing against the best collegiate swimmers in the country, Sommerville participated in the 50 free, 100 fly and 100 breast events while Olsson qualified for the 200 IM, 400 IM and 200 fly events. SWIMMERS AND DIVERS OF THE WEEK: Vikings were routinely honored by the Horizon League with four members of the women’s team being tabbed as the Horizon League’s Swimmer or Diver of the Week. Kacey Cummings led the way, earning ‘Diver of the Week’ honors a league-high four times, including a stretch of three weeks in a row. Alice Sommerville was named ‘Swimmer of the Week’ twice while Carys Behn and Joanna Olsson also earned the honor of being named ‘Swimmer of the Week’.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE 2010-11 men’s season UNDEFEATED IN THE LEAGUE: A 127-114 win over UIC on Feb. 5 allowed the men’s swimming and diving team to finish the season with a perfect conference mark for the first time since the 2003-04 campaign. The Vikings were 4-0 in the Horizon League in 2010-11, including wins over Valparaiso (131-69), Green Bay (147-96) and Wright State (191-107). TEN OF 10 PLUS: The men’s team finished its regular season with 12 wins, marking the squad’s 10th consecutive year with double-digit dual meet victories. The Viking men also finished with their 13th straight winning season, having an above-.500 mark every year since 1998-99, the longest such streak in program history. The second longest stretch is 10 seasons of winning records, set from 1973-74 to 1982-83. ...AND 10th AMONG MID-MAJORS: Following the 12-win season the Vikings were recognized with a 10th-place ranking in the final TYR/College Swimming Coaches of America Association Mid-Major poll, released on March 15. The Vikings finished with a score of 240.9. The only other Horizon League team to place on the poll was Milwaukee, which came in 19th with 236.7 points. The Mid-Major rankings use an objective point system to compare teams’ relative strength in a traditional dual meet lineup as submitted by participating teams. The ranking is available to those institutions that a) are not members of a BCS conference or Mountain West Conference, or b) provide fewer than one-half of the allowable scholarships under the NCAA rules. CSU TAKES THIRD AT THE LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP: The Viking men’s swimming team set one Horizon League record and broke three Cleveland State marks at the Horizon League Championships from Feb. 23-26, culminating in a third place overall finish.

The Vikings started the championships with a bang, breaking the league record in the 200 freestyle relay, the first event of the meet. The team of Justin Hill, Alex Lewis, Berry Thompson and Mike Marsico took first in 1:19.36, breaking the old mark of 1:19.50, set by CSU in 2009. Justin Kermack and Berry Thompson broke CSU records on the final day of the championships, with Kermack setting a new time in the 200 fly (1:48.65) and Thompson breaking the school mark in the 100 free (44.07).

Director of Competitive Aquatics/ Head Swimming Coach 38th Season overall 31st Season with men’s team 5th Season with women’s team With over 300 combined wins in his 30 years as a head coach at Cleveland State, Wally Morton has secured his legacy as one of the greatest coaches in Viking history. Morton has led the men’s team to double-digit wins 14 times, including each of the past 10 seasons. In 27 of his 30 seasons the men have finished .500 or better, with the team obtaining a winning percentage of .700 or higher a remarkable 13 times. Since taking over as coach in 2007, the women’s team has also experienced unprecedented level of success, winning 29 dual meets over the past two seasons with the team taking third at the 2010-11 Horizon League Championships. Named the Director of Competitive Aquatics in 2007, Morton is entering his 38th season with the men’s program and his fifth with the women’s team. Prior to being named the head coach of the men’s program in 1981, he spent seven years as an assistant coach with the Vikings. While coaching the men, Morton has compiled a record of 277-145-2 including a 4-0 record against Horizon League teams last year. His successful tenure includes 14 Penn-Ohio Championships, a pair of Midwestern Collegiate Conference (MCC) titles, a Horizon League Championship and an astounding 27 seasons with a .500 or better record. In his coaching career, Morton has led five athletes to qualify for the NCAA Championships, including three appearances by 2009 20 C l e v e l a n d S t a t e U n i v e r s i t y

All-American Jakub Dobies. Last season the men set one Horizon League and three Cleveland State records en route to a third place finish at the Horizon League Championships and a 10th place ranking in the final College Swimming Coaches Association of America Mid-Major poll. Over the last four years, Morton has also turned the women’s program into a contender, highlighted by a 15-4 finish in 2010-11. This marked the fifth .700 or better season for the women while the 15 wins are the most in CSU history by either team. Morton has led the men to a record of 11236-1 over the past 11 seasons, and the women to a record of 37-18 over the last three seasons. The 2005-06 Horizon League Coach of the Year, Morton led the Viking men to back-to-back MCC titles in 1998 and 1999 and was named the MCC Coach of the Year in 1997 and 1999. He was also named the Coach of the Year of the Penn-Ohio Conference six times, including a stretch of three straight seasons from 1984-86. Morton’s success on the pool deck is affirmed by the number of successful athletes he has coached during his career at CSU. He has led countless swimmers to the United States Senior Swimming Nationals and five to the NCAA Championships. His success has also translated internationally with Nedim Nisic competing in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China. Two other CSU swimmers under Morton’s direction have gone on to be Olympic Trials finalists and the Vikings got their first All-American in school history in Dobies in 2009. In 2010, both Dobies and Mark deSwardt earned Mid-Major All-American Honorable Mention accolades. Morton joined the CSU staff in 1974 as the Aquatic Director of the brand-new Cleveland State University Natatorium while also serving as an assistant coach with the men’s swim team. Following the retirement of coaching legend Bob Busbey in 1981, Morton was named the head coach and has since brought regional and national prominence to the Vikings. In addition to coaching, Morton has been extensively involved in event management for 38 national and international aquatic events as the University’s Aquatics Director and has overseen four NCAA Division I Championships and many regional and international competitions hosted by Cleveland State. Due to his vast experience in coaching and hosting championship swimming events, Morton has become a well-known face in the swimming world, allowing for international recruiting. During his tenure, he has successfully recruited athletes from a number of countries including Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Croatia, Canada, England, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Panama, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Serbia and Montenegro, South Africa, Spain and Sweden. A 1970 Miami (Ohio) graduate, Morton was a member of back-to-back Mid-American Conference Championship swim teams in 1966 and 1967. www.csuvikings.com

The winningest coach in Cleveland State swimming history, Morton credits his successful coaching career to two great influences: Tom Patton of the Dover, Ohio YMCA and former USA Olympic coach Busbey, who Morton had the privilege to serve under for his first seven years with the Vikings. In addition to his duties with the swim teams, Morton is also a faculty member in the Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance Department at CSU. Morton and his wife, Carol, a professor at Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio, have one son, Robert. They reside in Strongsville, Ohio.

Assistant Coach 3rd Season 2011-12 Swimming & Diving

Since taking over CSU’s Head Diving Coach position in 2003, Rich Karban has had tremendous amounts of success. He is not only viewed as one of the top coaches in Cleveland State’s history, but also the entire Horizon League because of that success. Karban has earned the Horizon League Diving Coach of the Year honors in five of the last eight seasons. Last year, for the seventh time in the last eight seasons under Karban, a Viking earned league Diver of the Meet honors when Kacey Cummings claimed the title. Josh Gonzalez was recognized in 2010; Dan Baiko took the top honor in both the one- and three-meter events in 2008; Chris Dalman won both the one- and three-meter titles in 2007 and the one-meter in 2006; Thatcher Carr won the three-meter in 2006, as well as both the oneand three-meter titles in 2005; and Chris Jones claimed the one-meter title and finished second in the threemeter in 2004. Dalman was also coached to an 18th place finish in the one-meter diving event and 20th place finish in the three-meter diving event at the 2007 NCAA Championships while under Karban. During the early 1980’s, Karban had a very successful diving career at Cleveland State. In 2000, he

became just the second diver and the fourth member of the swimming and diving team to be voted into the Cleveland State Athletics Hall of Fame. Karban also became the first CSU diver and just the second swimming and diving team member to win an Eastern Intercollegiate Championship, claiming the three-meter title in 1984. During each of his four seasons on the team, he also helped the Vikings to a team title at the Penn-Ohio Championships. His career culminated in 1984 after being named the team’s most outstanding athlete and qualifying for zones. Karban spent three years with CSU from 1984-1987 before leaving to work with Olympic diving coach Ron O’Brien. He spent the first two seasons as an assistant and was the head diving coach for the Vikings for the 1986-87 season. Karban then coached the diving team at Eastern Michigan from 1989-94, earning the MidAmerican Conference Coach of the Year honor in 1992. He also coached his U.S. Diving Junior Olympic Club to a fifth-place finish at the national championships in 1990. Karban and his wife, Betsy, were married in 1988 and have two children, Rich and Elyssa.

Andrew Hancock returns to his alma mater for his fifth season as an assistant coach, having led the Vikings to unprecedented success during his previous four. Serving as the assistant swimming coach for both Viking teams, Hancock has led the men’s team to at least 10 wins in each of his four years while helping build the women’s team from a four-win team in 2007-08 to a 15-win squad last season. The recruiting coordinator, facility manager and record-keeper for Cleveland State, Hancock was recognized over the past offseason as an honorable mention for CollegeSwimming.com’s National Career/Lifetime Assistant ‘Coach of the Year’ award. From 1999-03, Hancock enjoyed a highly successful career for the Vikings. Named the Horizon League Swimmer of the Year in 2002, he won six individual titles, including the 1,650 freestyle in each of his final three seasons. He was able to win four consecutive conference titles as a member of the Vikings’ 800 freestyle relay team, setting a then-conference record in the event in 2003. Hancock also formerly held the school-record in the 400

IM, being the first Viking in school history to break the four-minute barrier in the event. Hancock was able to compete against some of the best swimmers in the sports’ history as an age group swimmer in Australia, including Ian Thorpe and Grant Hackett. Hancock began his coaching career at CSU, volunteering as an assistant for the men and women during the 2003-04 season before heading to Northwestern. Hancock spent three years in Chicago, where he was the Head Age Group Coach at NASA/Wildcat Aquatics out of Northwestern University before he returned to his alma mater in 2007. At Northwestern, Hancock’s swimmers achieved 13 top-25 National Rankings over a two-year span, including two first plac-e and seven top-five rankings. While he was at Northwestern, Hancock gained valuable insight into coaching and worked with some of the best swimmers in the world. Hancock graduated from CSU in 2004 with a Bachelor’s degree in Finance. He married former Viking swimmer Rebecca Guerra, in 2005 and the couple has one son, Oliver. They reside in Brooklyn, Ohio.

Now in her third season on the Cleveland State coaching staff, April Woo continues to improve the Vikings on a daily basis both in the workout room and the pool. Woo focuses on the dryland and weight training portions of the sport, as well as assisting with dayto-day aspects of the CSU program. Upon completing her swimming career at the University of the Pacific in 2009, Woo was named as an assistant coach on head coach Wally Morton’s staff. She then became driven to transfer her enthusiasm and passion for dryland and weight training to the Cleveland State swimmers. During her first season, the Viking men and women both tied school records with 14 dual meet wins in a season, culminating with a second place finish at the league championships for the men. Last season she helped the women win an unprecedented 15 dual meets while leading the men to a perfect 4-0 record in dual

meets agaisnt Horizon League competition. Both teams placed third at the league championships. Woo was previously an instructor at Tiger Aquatics in Stockton, Calif., where she planned and conducted swimming workouts for people of all ages and abilities. She spent time teaching biomechanics and water safety procedures at the Pacific Swim School (also in Stockton) and the Iolani Swim School in Honolulu, Hawaii. During her career at Pacific, Woo swam sprints in all four strokes for the Tigers. Her swimming career was capped off during her junior season, when she set personal bests in all of her strokes. She finished with an eighth place ranking in the Pacific record books in the 100 breaststroke. In 2008, she was part of the top-10 all-time 400 freestyle relay. Woo graduated from the University of the Pacific with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.

john

Director of Athletics 2nd Year at CSU John Parry, a veteran of intercollegiate athletics, including 18 years within the Horizon League, will serve as Director of Athletics at Cleveland State for the 2011-12 athletic year. He was named to the position full-time on April 4, 2011 after serving in that role in an interim capacity in 2010. Prior to coming to Cleveland State, Parry was the Director of Athletics for 16 years at Butler University, and has already impacted CSU athletics. “Having worked with John for almost 18 years, he is a valuable asset to both Cleveland State University and intercollegiate athletics,” Horizon League commissioner Jon LeCrone said. “It has been great to have him once again be part of the Horizon League team where he brings his experience, keen insights and perspectives to the table.” Since arriving in Cleveland, Parry has worked to integrate Global Spectrum and Nelligan Sports into the university structure, a pair of strategic marketing partners who will help to provide the department with increased revenue streams. Global Spectrum took over operational control of the Wolstein Center in August while Nelligan Sports represents the university to create sponsorship and marketing opportunities. Parry has also coordinated the addition of staff in athletic training, strength & conditioning and sports information, reorganized the athletic ticketing and marketing departments and worked to add coaching resources in softball and soccer to help continue the growth of the department. Growth is nothing new to Parry, who oversaw an era of unparalleled success while serving as Direc2011-12 Swimming & Diving

tor of Athletics at Butler from 1990 to 2006. Under Parry, Butler expanded its sports offerings, added and improved athletic facilities, and experienced its greatest single period of athletic achievement. Butler captured its first Horizon League James J. McCafferty Trophy for all-sports excellence in 1996-97, and the Bulldogs repeated that honor in 1997-98, 1998-99, 2001-02 and 2002-03. Bulldog teams captured 55 conference regular season/tournament championships during his tenure and made NCAA National Championship appearances in men’s and women’s basketball, football, men’s soccer, volleyball, men’s and women’s cross country, lacrosse, men’s tennis, men’s and women’s track and baseball. Parry was at the helm when Butler built the foundation to the men’s basketball program that culminated with NCAA title game appearances in 2010 and 2011. During Parry’s time in Indianapolis, the Bulldogs made five of the school’s first six NCAA Tournament appearances in men’s basketball, including a berth in the NCAA’s “Sweet 16” in 2003. In addition, the men’s cross country team posted Butler’s highest NCAA finish ever with a fourth-place showing at the 2004 national meet, and Victoria Mitchell captured Butler’s first national championship in 73 years with a first place finish in the 3,000 meter steeplechase at the 2005 NCAA Track and Field meet. One of the cornerstones to Parry’s leadership philosophy is excellence both on and off the playing field. His emphasis on academics helped Butler lead the Horizon League in number of student-athletes named to the academic honor roll in nine of his final 10 years. In the process, Bulldog student-athletes accumulated numerous league, regional and national academic honors. In 1991 and 1997, Butler served as co-host to the men’s basketball Final Four in Indianapolis, two events that helped the city lure the NCAA headquarters away from Kansas City in 1999, giving the city an indispensable source of revenue and supplier of civic events. A past member of the NCAA Division I Management Council (1997-2004) and the NCAA Men’s Basketball Issues Committee (2000-02), Parry was

named the 2002-03 Central Region Division I-AA Athletic Director of the Year by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA). He also served as a member of the Executive Committee of NACDA from 1992-2002. A native of Marcellus, N.Y., Parry attended Brown University where he was a two-time All-Ivy League pass receiver and co-captain of the football team while also lettering in basketball and lacrosse. Parry earned a B.A. in economics from Brown, and a master’s in business administration from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. After earning his degrees, Parry spent eight years in business with IBM and then as co-founder of Instant Data Inc., in Philadelphia. He completed football and lacrosse coaching stints at Brown while working as the assistant athletic director (197579). Parry was named Director of Athletics at Brown in 1979, a position he held for 11 years until leaving for Butler in 1990. During his time with the Bears, he oversaw a department that featured 30 intercollegiate sports for men and women, leading the school to the best overall women’s won-lost record in the Ivy league during the decade of the 1980’s. He served as the founding director of the Brown University Sports Foundation, an endowment fund that has grown to better than $60 million today. Facilitating growth dominated Parry’s years at Brown.

A PROUD HISTORY Founded on June 16, 1979, as the Midwestern City Conference with six charter members, the League changed its name to the Midwestern Collegiate Conference in 1985 and added women’s sports for the 1986-87 academic year. Charter members of the conference included current members Butler and Loyola as well as the University of Evansville, Oklahoma City University, Oral Roberts University and Xavier University. Among other current members, Detroit joined in 1980, and Cleveland State, UIC, Green Bay, Milwaukee and Wright State came aboard in 1994 (along with Northern Illinois University) in the largest non-merger conference expansion in history. Youngstown State joined in 2001 and Valparaiso in 2007. On June 4, 2001, the Horizon League unveiled its current name and ushered in a new dynamic direction that has brought the League closer to its stated goal of being one of the nation’s top ten collegiate athletic conferences with a focus on enhancing the student-athletes’ experience by upgrading the League’s market and competitive positions.

Bill Potter Director of Student-Athlete Affairs: ..................................... Christine Halstead Asst. Dir. of Communications:.............................. Craig Hammel In its 33rd season of operation in the 2011-12 academic year, the Horizon League continues to aspire toward its goal of being one of the nation’s leading athletics conferences while being recognized as a leader in the development of student-athletes as leaders and role models. The Horizon League membership features ten public and private institutions that have impressive academic reputations and a storied tradition of broad-based athletic programs. Membership includes Butler University, Cleveland State University, the University of Detroit Mercy, the University of Illinois at Chicago, Loyola University Chicago, Valparaiso University, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, the University of WisconsinMilwaukee, Wright State University and Youngstown State University. The Horizon League’s primary focus is on adding value to the educational experience through its four platforms: athletic performance, academic achievement, community outreach, and personal responsibility and accountability. It is the League’s belief that athletics is a powerful and visible resource tool that can be used to enhance student-athletes’ collegiate experience. The Horizon League’s goals are to enhance the holistic university experience for the student-athlete, to create an affiliation of institutions with similar athletic goals, and to adhere to the principals of integrity, diversity, excellence and growth. The Horizon League sponsors competition in 19 sports - nine for men (baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, swimming and diving, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field and tennis) and ten for women (basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, tennis and volleyball). The League receives automatic bids to NCAA championships in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, women’s volleyball, and for the first time in League history, women’s golf. The Horizon League is headquartered in Indianapolis, the “Amateur Sports Capital of the World,” with offices in the Pan American Plaza (201 S. Capitol Avenue), located a block from Lucas Oil Stadium and just minutes from Conseco Fieldhouse, the State Capitol Building, Victory Field (home of the Indianapolis Indians) and the NCAA national office. 28 C l e v e l a n d S t a t e U n i v e r s i t y

ATHLETIC SUCCESS In the past few years, the Horizon League has enjoyed unprecedented success on the national stage, highlighted by Butler’s second consecutive appearance in the NCAA men’s basketball championship game appearance where the Bulldogs fell to Connecticut, 53-41. The Horizon League has compiled a 19-11 record in the past nine years in the NCAA tournament, ranking seventh among all collegiate conferences for winning percentage. Green Bay’s women’s basketball team became the league’s first team to reach the Sweet 16 in 2011, knocking off Michigan State in the second round before going toe-to-toe with No. 1 seed Baylor in the regional semifinals. The Phoenix earned a No. 5 seed in the tournament, going 34-2 on the year and holding a perfect 16-0 mark in Horizon League play. Men’s soccer has tasted victory in seven out of the last nine years (Milwaukee 2002-05, UIC 2006-08), with UIC just one win away from the College Cup in 2007. In 2011, Butler was consistently ranked in the top 10 of the nation, earning the No. 13 national seed after becoming the last unbeaten team in the country. In softball, League teams won a game in the national tournament four straight years earlier in the decade (UIC 2002, 2004; Wright State 2003; Green Bay 2005) while advancing into the second round in women’s soccer three of the last six seasons (Detroit 2004, Milwaukee 2005-06). Butler’s Victoria Mitchell became the League’s first NCAA individual champion when she won the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the 2005 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships. ACADEMIC SUCCESS Horizon League student-athletes also excel in the classroom as more than 500 have been named to the Academic Honor Roll each of the past nine semesters for carrying a grade-point average of 3.2 or better, including more than 700 for the last four semesters. 24 student-athletes were named to ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-District teams in 2010-11, while six earned Academic All-America honors. COMMUNITY SERVICE In addition to its athletics success, the Horizon League has secured a well-earned reputation for its community service initiatives. Each January, member institutions partner with local elementary schools for an art, music and essay contest highlighting the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with winners recognized at League games on the weekend of MLK Day. The Horizon League Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) also has continued a tradition of working with youth in Indianapolis during its annual summer meeting. In addition, SAAC is partnering with Special Olympics, putting on events for olympians in each community. Several League men’s basketball coaches coached barefoot to support Samaritan’s Feet and Coaches vs. Cancer initiatives, and the League’s schools and fans donate to Komen for the Cure for breast cancer awareness during its annual www.csuvikings.com

women’s basketball championship. On campus, student-athletes have raised money and awareness for such causes as breast cancer, diabetes and hurricane relief, while hosting blood drives, neighborhood clean-ups, Big Brother/Big Sister programs and more. SPORTSMANSHIP One of the Horizon League’s points of emphasis is fostering collegial environments for competition among student-athletes, coaches, administrators and fans in a pro-active approach. Among the vehicles is the Ethical Conduct Pledge, which is signed each season by student-athletes, coaches, officials, and campus and League administrators. Its purpose is to make all the involved groups aware of the Horizon League expectations of behavior during conference events. DEMOGRAPHICS Horizon League institutions boast a combined enrollment of more than 130,000 plus nearly a quarter-million living alumni centered in the League’s Midwest footprint. League media markets include five of the nation’s top 35 in Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Indianapolis and Milwaukee, covering more than ten million television households and encompassing more than nine percent of the nation’s television audience. GOVERNANCE The Horizon League is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of the ten member institutions’ chief executive officers. Dr. Ronald Berkman, President of Cleveland State, serves as Board Chair through June 30, 2012. John Parry, Director of Athletics at Cleveland State, serves as chair of the Executive Council, and Beth Goetz, Associate Athletic Director/Senior Woman Administrator at Butler, is the Vice Chair and Shelia Patterson of Cleveland State serves as chair of the Faculty Athletics Representatives. LEADERSHIP Jonathan B. (Jon) LeCrone is in his 20th year as Commissioner of the Horizon League, having been named to the position on May 11, 1992, and is the fifth-longest tenured commissioner among the 31 Division I conferences. He is the fifth commissioner in League history, succeeding Daniel B. “Tucker” DiEdwardo (1989-92), James W. Shaffer (1984-89), Cecil N. Coleman (198084) and James J. McCafferty (1979-80). LeCrone is in the final year of a four-year term on the NCAA Division I Leadership Council after completing a five-year term on the Division I Men’s Basketball Committee. VISIBILITY The Horizon League has enhanced its media visibility with a number of initiatives. The League is in a three-year agreement with ESPN that includes selected regular-season men’s basketball action (ESPN2) and the men’s championship game (ESPN) and features increased exposures each year on ESPNU plus inclusion in the annual O’Reilly ESPNU BracketBusters, one of college basketball’s premier in-season events. HORIZON LEAGUE NETWORK Having streamed more than 2,000 free, live events in the last five years, the Horizon League is a recognized leader in video streaming, through the Horizon League Network (HLN). HLN takes viewers inside the conference, featuring student-athlete profiles, weekly highlight shows, comprehensive coverage of all 19 Horizon League championships and other special programming. In 2010-11, HLN and HorizonLeague.com experienced unprecedented growth as more than 300,000 unique visitors across 149 countries/territories watched HLN coverage. Through the League’s partnership with WebStream Productions, HorizonLeague.com integrated both HorizonLeagueNetwork.tv and HorizonLeague.org, leading to record visitors to the new site. The 201011 season featured the 2,000th live event streamed by the League.

return the championship meet to Cleveland State. When the 1977 Division I Championships were completed, there was no doubt left as to which pool was superior in the United States. The meet featured the shattering of sixteen NCAA records; a mark that still stands today. In fact, the 1977 finals were later termed as “The greatest swimmers in the fastest pool at the greatest meet in history” by none other than the NCAA itself. Two years later, the meet returned to Cleveland, and, after a five year lapse, it was back again for a fourth time in 1984 to sellout crowds yet again. Since that time, the pool has been an eleven-time host site of the Eastern Intercollegiate Championships and hosted the Penn-Ohio Conference Championships a staggering 17 times. The natatorium has been the site of championships of all shapes and sizes during its history, including six Horizon League Championships. What may stand out the most is the variety of the 16 national aquatic championships that have been held at Cleveland State. These events include United States international diving meets, AAU and YMCA national championships, the National Water Polo Championships and the World Swimming Games for the Deaf. The natatorium has remained dear to the hearts of United States swimmers as it has been used by the 1976 United States Olympic Swimming and Diving Teams, the 1980 Olympic Diving Team and the 1984 Olympic Swim Team for their practices. The pool has even witnessed record-breaking performances by United States gold medal winners Tom Jager, Matt Biondi, Greg Louganis and Pablo Morales. In addition, the October 22, 2002 issue of Sports Illustrated ranked the Busbey Natatorium the sixth fastest pool in America. The structure of the Busbey Natatorium itself is even unique. The fact that an incredible 933,000 gallons of water are needed to fill the pool is unusual. The natatorium measures 50 meters in length (with nine eight-foot competitive lanes) by 25 yards wide (with 23 seven-foot competitive lanes) with racing lanes measuring 12 to 16-1/2 feet deep. Below the surface, the pool features underwater speakers and six underwater windows which provide the CSU staff with an excellent coaching tool. Also, the pool utilizes an automatic touchpad timing system for up to ten lanes during meets. In terms of diving competitions, the natatorium includes two one-meter maxiflex boards, two three-meter maxiflex boards, and a diving tower with platforms at 5, 7-1/2, and 10 meters. The pool’s uniqueness is not limited to simply the main pool itself. The south stands feature a 25-yard instructional pool which is also very useful as a warm up/ cool down pool for competitions. In ceremonies held on October 2, 1999, the 1,500seat CSU Natatorium was officially renamed The Robert F. www.csuvikings.com

Busbey Natatorium, in honor of long-time swimming coach and athletic director, Robert Busbey. Over a span of nearly a half-century, beginning with his enrollment at Fenn College in 1946, Busbey impacted the University’s sports program as only a special few men have at any collegiate institution. As a four-sport athlete, Busbey was Fenn’s first AllAmerican, gaining national prominence by winning that honor as a swimmer in both 1948 and 1949 and failing by the tiniest margin for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team in 1950. He went on to serve as head coach of his alma mater for 30 years. During his coaching tenure, he was named assistant coach for the 1964 U.S. Olympic Team, served as chairman of the NCAA Swimming Committee and was responsible for bringing five NCAA Championships to CSU. For his accomplishments, Busbey was honored with the 1982 National Collegiate & Scholastic Swimming Trophy, one of the sport’s highest awards. In 1966, Busbey succeeded Homer E. Woodling as Cleveland State’s Director of Athletics. Over a span of 24 years in that position, he developed a flourishing program and became a prime force in the planning and building of CSU’s athletic facilities, including Krenzler Field, the CSU Convocation Center and the Physical Education Building. Unanimously voted a charter member of the CSU Athletic Hall of Fame when it opened in 1975, Busbey became Associate Vice President for Athletic Affairs in 1990 and continued to serve his alma mater until his retirement in 1994. For all its special features and the amount of events it has hosted in its 32 years, The Robert F. Busbey Natatorium truly enjoys one of the most fascinating histories of any aquatic facility in the United States. Robert F.
