MATADOR TRACK & FIELD COMPLEX >> THE NORTHRIDGE TRACK AND FIELD COMPLEX is one of the finest training and competition venues in the state of California. The track and field facility has most recently hosted the 2010 Big West Conference Outdoor Championships and in 2008 hosted both the Big West Outdoor Championships as well as the NCAA Western Regional Championships. The facility, which has hosted a conference championship seven times in its history, also hosted the 2004 NCAA Western Regional. The 400M track is nine lanes and considered very fast. The surface was applied in 1997 by Southwest Industries and resurfaced in the summer of 2003. A state-of-theart scoreboard was installed in 2003 featuring instant timing of events taking place on the track. The track is oriented in a North/South alignment to take advantage of either of the most common prevailing wind conditions. The steeplechase barriers are fully adjustable to accommodate female participants. The north end of the complex has an expansive area for the high jump, with enough room to run two pits simultaneously. There are four horizontal jump pits situated in each corner of the infield, allowing either long jump or triple jump to be contested with favorable winds. There are two shot put rings, and a discus ring on each end of the infield. The javelin runway is at the North end of the facility, adjacent to the high jump area. The pole vault pit was recently relocated to the east side of the complex. Hammer is conducted at North Campus Stadium for competitions. The track is located in a bowl shaped depression with festival seating for 5,000 plus. â–

DONSTRAMETZ >> HEAD COACH // 31ST SEASON [WOMEN] // 26TH SEASON [MEN] >> CAL STATE LOS ANGELES; B.S. 1968; M.A. 1975

DON STRAMETZ, WHO recently completed his 31st season with the Matador women and 26th with the Northridge men, added to his long list of accolades during a championship-filled 2011 season. The Matadors won their sixth-consecutive women’s team championship at the Big West Conference Championships, giving Northridge the most champonships by a women’s team in conference history. Now in its 10th season as a member of the Big West Conference in outdoor track & field, Strametz and his staff have led the Matadors to a combined 13 team championships, including eight on the women’s side and five on the men’s side. This season, the men’s and women’s squads had 32 athletes receive All-Big West Conference honors during the outdoor season and MPSF Indoor campaign. In 10 seasons in the Big West, well over 200 Matador athletes have garnered all-conference honors. The Matadors have also excelled in the classroom under Strametz’s tutelage as over 85 Northridge student-athletes have earned all-conference academic honors over the last 10 years. Strametz, who has been voted Big West Coach of the Year by his peers 14 times since 2002, was also named WAC Women’s Coach of the Year as well as USTFCCCA Region Coach of the Year in 2007. Strametz also spearheaded Cal State Northridge's effort to host the NCAA West Regionals in 2004 and 2008 at the Matador Track & Field Complex. He has also been behind Northridge’s effort to showcase the Big West Outdoor Championships in Northridge in 2004, 2007, 2008 and 2010. In 2001, the Matadors closed a five-year run in the Big Sky Conference as one of the most successful programs both indoor and outdoor. Strametz led

the Matador women to three outdoor team championships (1997, 1999, 2000) and one indoor championship (1999). The CSUN men finished as the Big Sky runner-up in 1999. In all, 60 Matador men and women earned All-Big Sky Indoor honors and 86 earned All-Big Sky Outdoor accolades from 19972001. Northridge track and field also continued its excellence in the classroom by having 79 studentathletes earn Big Sky All-Academic Indoor season honors and 79 All-Academic Outdoor season honorees over five years. Strametz has headed both the men’s and women’s track and field teams since 1986. He also heads the Matador men’s and women’s cross country teams. In 1979, he became head coach of the men’s team and in 1980 took over coaching duties for the women. With the addition of indoor track and field in 1992, he is the head coach of six Matador teams. Strametz’s coaching success has not gone unnoticed by his peers. Strametz was named California Collegiate Athletic Association Women’s Coach of the Year in 1986, 1988 and 1990. For the men’s team, he was honored as top coach of the conference in 1987. That same year, the Northridge coach was named NCAA Western Regional Coach of the Year while serving as President of the NCAA Division II Cross Country Coaches Association. The Matadors’ first NCAA Division I champion in any sport was crowned in 1991 when All-American Darcy Arreola claimed first-place honors in the 1,500 meters at the NCAA Championships. The achievement capped a solid opening season of Division I competition for the Matador program. In 1989, he was voted Cal State Northridge Coach of the Year by the intercollegiate athletic pro-

2011 TRACK & FIELD

gram of the university, NCAA Men’s Western Region Coach of the Year and was the recipient of the Honorary Service Award, as voted by his peers. He was also a two-time American West Conference Coach of the Year for both the men’s and women’s squads (1995-96) and the Big Sky Conference Women’s Outdoor Coach of the Year in 1997. As president of the California-Nevada Track and Field Coaches Association, Strametz heads an organization dedicated to the revitalization of track and field on the West Coast. He has been instrumental in spearheading the annual CaliforniaNevada Track and Field Championships. Before coming to Northridge, Strametz was the head track and field coach at Locke High School in Los Angeles from 1974-79. He was voted L.A. City Coach of the Year in 1979 after leading his boys’ team to first place in the L.A. City Championship and a runner-up finish in the state championships. He also guided the girls’ team to a state championship in 1977. Aside from instructing athletes in competition, Strametz has been a professor at Cal State Northridge since 1985. He began his teaching career in 1969 at Locke High School in Los Angeles. After leaving Locke in 1979, he taught at Mount Vernon Junior High School until 1985. In addition to his responsibilities at Mount Vernon, Strametz was an associate professor at Cal State Northridge from 1979-85. After he graduated from John Muir High School in Pasadena, Strametz enrolled at Cal State Los Angeles, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education in 1968. Strametz also received his master’s degree in physical education from Cal State L.A. in 1975. In his spare time, Strametz enjoys gardening, golfing and the outdoors. ■

ASSISTANT COACHES >> AVERY ANDERSON Assistant Coach Sprints/Multi-Events Seventh Season UCLA, 1996

Having just completed his seventh year, Avery Anderson brings to the Matadors a great deal of success at the highest levels of athletics. As a two-sport standout, Anderson played as a wide receiver in the NFL as well as competed at the world-class level as a decathlete. Since arriving at Northridge, his penchant for success has helped the Matador track and field program to unprecedented levels. In 5 years he has coached 2 NCAA Champions, including 2007 NCAA Long Jump Champion Dashalle Andrews who became the first individual men’s NCAA Champion in CSUN history. The following spring in March 2008, Anderson coached freshman Reindell Cole to the NCAA Indoor National Championship, giving CSUN back to back national champions in the same event. In 2009 the Matadors enjoyed one of its most successful track and field seasons as both the men’s and women’s teams easily outpaced its competition at the Big West Conference Championship meet. The men’s team captured the title by scoring 176.5 points, 40 points more than it’s closest competitor. Not to be outdone, the women’s team scored 198 points to capture the title, winning by 83 points over the second place. Athletes coached by Anderson accounted for 127 of the 176 points scored for the men’s team, and 163 of the 198 points scored for the women’s team, while winning 13 events at the meet. 2009 also saw sophomore Reindell Cole post the top mark in the NCAA in the Long Jump with a leap of 26’11 ¾”. Cole, who won the Texas Relays crown, was part of a trio of Matadors coached by Anderson to earn Athlete of the Meet honors at the Cal/Nevada Championships. Along with Deshawn Waters and Sherrina Lofton, the Matadors garnered 3 of the 4 athlete of the meet honors. This type of success is becoming much more common for Northridge athletes since Anderson’s arrival at CSUN. While surprising to some, Anderson expects nothing less. “Get used to it. That’s CSUN track and field. My mission is to develop successful people. Not just on the track, but in the classroom, your career path, life, wherever. And that carries over to the track. I’m determined to develop athletes of all levels into great athletes who compete at the highest level. That’s why you see Northridge athletes winning national championships, or Texas relays titles, or whatever. You may or may not have been the best coming here, but you’re going to aspire to develop into the best by the time you leave here. I feel that if I can create that, the athletes will know that they can always do anything in life.” This ideal was no more evident than in 2008 when Anderson coached indi-

vidual athletes to the National Championships in the 100, 200, 400, the hurdles, long jump, triple jump, high jump and multi event competitions. In his time at CSUN as the coach of sprints, hurdles, jumps, relays and multi event athletes, Anderson has coached athletes to 28 NCAA Championship berths, more than 60 NCAA regional qualifiers, and more than 150 marks to Northridge’s all time record book. Prior to returning to Northridge for his second stint, Anderson worked as a volunteer assistant at Kansas State(2002-2004) and UCLA(2001-2002). He worked as a volunteer assistant at Cal State Northridge during the 1999-2001 seasons while competing as a decathlete. Anderson still owns the CSUN complex record in the decathlon which he set in 2000 to qualify for the US Olympic Trials. Before returning to the sport of track and field, Anderson played wide receiver for the Indianapolis Colts from 1996-1997 before a back injury ended his career. A 1996 graduate of UCLA, Anderson earned degrees in Political Science and Sociology while competing in football and track. He was a member of the NCAA runner up 4x100 relay team his senior season, and played in the 1994 Rose Bowl. Anderson recently married the former Bridget Pearson, who coaches the Matador pole vaulters, assists with the multi events, and is the strength and conditioning coach for the track and field team.

BRIDGET PEARSON

Assistant Coach Pole Vault, Strength & Conditioning Sixth Season UCLA, 2004

Bridget Pearson has completed her sixth season on the Track & Field coaching staff in 2011. Pearson is in charge of the Matador pole vaulters as well as the teams’ strength and conditioning. In her six seasons, Pearson has helped the Matador women to three Big West Pole Vault titles, Krystal Quinn in 2008 and Tiana Webberley in both 2010 and 2011. On the men’s side, Sean Jones finished as Big West runner-up in both 2006 and 2007 and Anthony Orozco tied for fifth in 2010. Quinn, Webberley and Megan Hill all competed for Pearson and hold the top-three positions on the Matador career pole vault list. A 2004 graduate of UCLA, Pearson came to Cal State Northridge after serving the 2004-05 season as the head track & field coach at Hoover High School in Glendale, Calif. Prior to that, Pearson was the head cross country coach at Hoover during the 200304 season. She also gained coaching experience at her alma mater working as a coaching assistant at UCLA's pre-vault camp in 2001.

Pearson competed as a pole vaulter at UCLA from 1999-2004, winning the Irish Nationals in 2000. She prepped at Hoover High School where she was an All-American in the pole vault all four years. Pearson was the state champion in 1997 and claimed the CIF title in 1999 and went on to finish fourth at nationals. She also competed in volleyball and water polo before graduating in 1999. Pearson recently married Avery Anderson and the couple have a son, Andy.

SEILALA SUA Assistant Coach Throws Fifth Season UCLA, 2001

Seilala (Sly) Sua is in her fifth season as a member of Don Strametz's Matador track & field coaching staff. Sua, who was officially named to the staff on Sept. 18, 2006 is an assistant coach in charge of the Northridge throwers. In her first five seasons, Sua has led the Matador throwers to unprecedented heights. Northridge throwers won four Big West titles in 2010, giving the Matadors nine individual conference throwing championships under her watch. Derek Cooper has been the most successful thrower under Sua, winning four conference titles from 2008-2010. Several Matador throwers have advanced to the NCAA Regionals as well as the NCAA Championships. A 2001 graduate of UCLA, Sua is the winningest athlete in NCAA track & field history. The seven-time NCAA Champion and 14-time All-American competed in all four throwing events - shot put, discus, hammer and javelin from 1997-2000, where she still ranks in the UCLA all-time top-10 in each of those events. In Pac-10 competition, Sua won six individual titles and was a two-time Pac-10 Women's Track and Field Athlete of the Year. In NCAA competition, she won six Outdoor titles and one indoor crown. Sua won four consecutive discus crowns and became only the second woman in NCAA history to win four straight individual titles in the same event. As a professional athlete, Sua has continued her collegiate success onto the National and World scene where she has been a member of two Olympic teams in the discus (2000 Sydney, 2004 Athens), four-time USATF National Champion in the discus, one-time USATF National Champion in the shot put and a three-time World Championships competitor. Sua has ranked in the top-10 in the Nation in the discus for eight consecutive years and had the No. 6 mark in the world in 2001. While competing in the shot put, she also ranked in the top-10 nationally for seven consecutive years. Sua graduated in 2001 with a degree in Sociology.

MATADOR ADMINISTRATION

DR. JOLENE KOESTER

University President Dr. Jolene Koester began her appointment as the fourth president of California State University, Northridge on July 1, 2000. At the time of her appointment, Koester had been serving as provost and vice president for Academic Affairs and professor of communication studies at California State University, Sacramento, a post she had held since 1993. Prior to her appointment as provost, she served in other executive positions in the academic affairs division at CSU Sacramento. She has been a faculty member since 1980. She earned a B.A. from the University of Minnesota, an M.A. in communication arts from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a Ph.D. in speech communication from Minnesota. The author of several scholarly books and articles on intercultural and interpersonal communication and a former Fulbright Scholar, Koester has served on systemwide committees on Cornerstones (the California State University’s systemwide strategic plan), budget and accountability, and teacher preparation. The Minnesota native chaired CSU Sacramento’s NCAA accreditation study and was president of the Western States Communication Association. In 1998, Cal State Northridge celebrated its 40th anniversary as the only public university located in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley, home to about 1.7 million residents.

Founded in 1958, the university has grown to include the 353-acre Northridge campus with over 34,000 diverse students and more than 3,800 employees. The university is one of the largest in the 23-campus California State University system. Cal State Northridge offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in more than 50 different majors.

RICK MAZZUTO

Athletic Director Rick Mazzuto was named Cal State Northridge Athletic Director on August 3, 2006, becoming the seventh athletic director in the Matadors’ 48-year history. Mazzuto comes to Northridge from Longwood University in Farmville, Va., where he served as athletic director since 2002. He has led the Lancers in the school’s transition from Division II to Division I, which began in March 2002. At Longwood, Mazzuto guided the program through many changes, including increases in operating budgets, scholarships and department personnel, while also overseeing scheduling, fundraising and marketing. Additionally, Mazzuto was instrumental in developing a comprehensive master plan for new athletic facilities and the complete renovation of some existing facilities. Prior to his days at Longwood, Mazzuto was the athletic director at Saint Mary’s in Moraga, Calif. from 1989 to 2000. He oversaw a $5-million budget and 16sport athletic program while with the Gaels. During his

time at SMC, the Gaels made three trips to the NCAA Tournament with their 1992 women’s soccer, 1997 men’s basketball and 1999 women’s basketball squads. Mazzuto began his athletic director career at Iona College in New Rochelle, N.Y., where he managed the Gaels’ 20-sport program. While there, Iona participated in two NCAA Tournaments and National Invitational Tournaments in men’s basketball, as the school won a combined 13 conference championships. Mazzuto started at Iona in 1977, working for three years as the institution’s associate athletic director. Mazzuto has served on numerous committees during his career, including the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee from 1991 to 1997. He also has extensive community service activities, serving on the Board of Directors of both the Moraga and New Rochelle Rotary Clubs. Mazzuto currently serves on the NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics and is on the Big West Compliance and Game Management Committee and is the administrative liaison to the Sports Information Directors. Mazzuto earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in political science from Trinity College in Hartford, Conn., where he began his career in intercollegiate athletics as the school’s sports information director for two years. He also served as SID at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa. for four years, and was the publicity director for the East Coast Conference for two years. Mazzuto is married to the former Janet Johnstone.

DR. TINA KIESLER

Faculty Athletic Representative Dr. Tina Kiesler assumed the title of CSUN's Faculty Athletics Representative prior to the start of the 2010-11 academic year. Dr. Kiesler joined the faculty of Cal State University Northridge in 2002. She is currently an Associate Professor of Marketing and the Director of the Business Honors Program. Before joining CSUN, she was a faculty member or visiting faculty member at the University of Southern California (USC), Rutgers University, New York University (NYU), Universidad Catolica Portuguesa, Yale, UCLA and Columbia University. Dr. Kiesler received her bachelor's degree in Psychology from the University of Michigan and her PhD in Marketing Management from UCLA's Anderson Graduate of Management.

NORTHRIDGE

THIS IS CAL STATE NORTHRIDGE WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY? California State University, Northridge exists to help students realize their educational goals. The University's first priority is to promote the welfare and intellectual progress of students. Part of the 23-campus California State University system, Cal State Northridge is the only public university located in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley (If incorporated, the area with 1.7 million residents would be the fifth largest city in the United States). Northridge celebrated its 40th anniversary in 199899, having educated more than 165,000 alumni. The main Northridge campus covers 356 acres and has about four million square feet of facilities, including about two dozen major buildings and more than 100 in total.

Soon after, the state Legislature passed Assembly Bill 971, which provided for the campus to separate from its parent college. On July 1, 1958, the founding date of the present university, the institution became San Fernando Valley State College, with about 3,300 students and 104 faculty. On June 1, 1972, the college was renamed California State University, Northridge, by action of the state Legislature and the Board of Trustees of the California State University.

state-of-the-art facilities have finished or are under construction, including new wings for the Oviatt Library and a new Arts, Media and Communication Building. Renovations have also just been completed to the University Student Union. ➤ Cal State Northridge has small average class sizes, ranging from about 29 for lecture sections and 19 for laboratory sections.
