A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT....... Dear Fellow DC Fan: We at Defiance College are extremely proud of our wonderful athletic program and of the many other activities taking place at DC. The students whom you are watching today are an important part of our larger DC family, and they are among the approximately 1000 DC students who benefit from the dedication and assistance provided by our wonderful faculty, alumni, staff, administrators, and friends. Students at DC receive a wide range of distinctive experiences as we strive to offer our students the best of all worlds. At DC, students get the individualized benefits of a student-centered small college, but they also get a world of opportunities beyond. What does this mean? It means that our students start working with us before they even start their classes to put together distinctive Personal Success Plans, so that we can work with them to tailor their DC education and experiences to their own individual interests and goals. Throughout their four years at Defianc, our students benefit from a broad range of activities and experiences that are structured both to help them achieve their individual dreams and also to enable them to stand out in the job market and when applying to graduate schools. As part of that approach, we work with our students to help them develop their own Defiance College Resume. DC students also participate in a broad array of curricular and extra-curricular activities that give students distinctive hands-on experiences in their relevant fields. Just to name a few examples, we are proud of the work that our Criminal Justice students do in investigating cold cases for Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office in Detroit; our Education students get hands-on experience working in classrooms as early as their freshman year; Science students run and manage a 200+ acre wildlife preserve; through our Business Advantage Program, business, marketing, finance, sales, accounting and other students get hands-on experiences creating and running actual businesses. I could go on and on in terms of the different opportunities our Communications, Sport Management, Pre-Med, Social Work, Graphic Design, and students in many other areas. We are all partucularly proud of the great work that our students have done running Project 701, a unique student-run, separately-legally-incorporated non-profit, in which DC students create, develop, run and manage service projects. From working with the two hospitals in town to run a free primarycare clinic to micro-finance lending; from providing computer repair services to packing backpacks full of food for needy elementary school students to take home on weekends, our DC students are gaining the tools to become entrepreneurial life-long learners, while also helping to address important local, regional, national, and international issues. In fact, Defiance College was recently named one of the top 20 schools in the country in terms of community service and engagement. DC students also get unique opportunities to travel both domestically and internationally. Under our DC Global Program, we actually guarantee an international opportunity in the junior and senior year to students in good standing who successfully complete our full four-year program. Over the past two years, DC students have traveled to Cambodia, Belize, Tanzania, Ghana, Spain, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, London, Paris, Vienna, Prague, Hungary, Slovakia, and more. Similarly, on a domestic level, DC students have traveled to New York City, Washington, D.C., Portland (OR), Pittsburgh, Detroit, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Kansas City, Des Moines, Denver, Selma, Memphis, Chicago, Nashville, Florida, South Carolina, New Mexico and elsewhere. We are very proud of the opportunities we give our students to open their eyes, raise their sights, open their minds, and , in many cases, open thier hearts as well. I hope you notice some of the recent improvements to our athletic facilities. Our George M. Smart Athletic Center (“the George”) began operation in February 2012, and we are thrilled with the opportunities our students have to use this 84,000 square foot facility, with its 200-meter indoor track, tennis courts, basketball courts, volleyball courts, batting cages, fitness center, weight room, and much more. The new turf on our football/lacrosse field was installed in December 2012, and we also recently renovated our outdoor E. Stevens Dix Tennis Courts. The new bleachers and improved flooring in our Weaner Center has also enhanced the experience for our fans, and more improvements are underway across campus this year as well. I want to thank our entire team, including players, coaches, trainers, and staff for the great work they do every day and the numerous ways in which they go above and beyond on a regular basis. I also want to thank our alumni, the parents of our athletes and the various organizations, all of whom donate generously to our athletic programs. Members of the Defiance College Board of Trustees, the Purple and Gold Club, and the Alumni Varsity ‘D’ all contribute immeasurably as well, both as individuals and through their organizations. And the incomparable fculty at DC, together with extremely dedicated administrators and staff, all combine to make DC the special place that it is. We are pleased to have you as our guest at DC today, and I hope that you will return to campus frequently for both sporting events and the numerous cultural and academic events we are proud to host. Go Jackets! Sincerely, Dr. Richanne C. Mankey, President

ATHLETIC ADMINISTRATION

Rudy Yovich - Director of Athletics ryovich@defiance.edu • (419) 783-2380

Rudy Yovich was named director of athletics at Defiance College during the summer of 2014. Yovich comes to Defiance after serving as the director of athletics at Owens Community College in Toledo since 2011 and was assistant director of athletics at Indiana University-Purdue University in Fort Wayne from 2003 to 2011. While at Owens, Yovich led an athletic department in which student-athletes improved both academically and athletically. During the 2012-13 season, student-athletes qualified for a record four national championships with every program qualifying for a regional tournament. The school had five All-Americans, nine Academic All-Americans, and two All-American Academic Teams, first-ever in school history. The school finished that academic year ranked 23rd nationally out of 401 schools in the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Learfield Director’s Cup standings, the school’s highest finish ever. “In talking with the administration and athletic department staff at Defiance, I was impressed with their passion for student-athlete service. I look forward to building upon the amazing tradition of DC Athletics, while continuing to expand our involvement within the community.” Yovich’s experience clearly demonstrates his commitment to emphasizing the “student” portion of the term student-athlete. Upon his arrival at Owens, he implemented an action plan to increase departmental grade point average (GPA). This past academic year, more than 90 percent of second-year student-athletes graduated or transferred to four-year institutions. While serving at the NCAA Division I Indiana University-Purdue University in Fort Wayne, Yovich had direct administrative oversight of a portion of the department’s athletic programs as well as two student organizations. He previously held media relations and marketing positions with the United Soccer Conference, Fort Wayne; Christian Brothers University, Memphis; and Erie Otters Hockey Club in Erie, Pa. Yovich earned his bachelor’s degree at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and an MBA in sports management from Columbia Southern University.

THIS IS DEFIANCE COLLEGE Defiance College is a private, liberal arts-based college providing outstanding academic programs and co-curricular activities for a student body of nearly 1,000 students. Defiance College takes strong academic programs, adds bright minds, stirs things up a bit, and serves the world. We’re uncommonly good at it. Defiance gives students an experience that defies the ordinary where they can grow through outstanding academics in a liberal arts environment, top-notch faculty who care about their students, and remarkable learning experiences that connect the classroom to the real world. Students at Defiance have the opportunity to put an individual stamp on their education. They engage in relevant research programs that rarely happen before graduate school. They present at state and national conferences, campus symposia, and create capstone projects that represent a deeper understanding of their academic accomplishments. Our professors are known for the energy and individual attention they provide for their students. Our student/faculty ratio is a low 11/1, allowing professors to get to know their students personally in order to tailor the academic experience. They stretch thinking skills in ways that prepare students for success, often augmenting classroom theory with actual practice, bringing in valuable internships, job shadowing, learning trips, and cooperative education projects with outside experiences. An interdisciplinary focus and distinctive curriculum ensure that students develop their skills in critical thinking and problem-solving. - Students can enrich their education in any major with honors courses, participation in honors symposia, and international travel opportunities through DC’s popular Carolyn M. Small Honors Program. - Many of our programs of study give the opportunity for students to be immersed in research in their discipline. For example, Restoration Ecology majors conduct field research at the 200-acre Thoreau Wildlife Sanctuary just two miles from campus. - Internships and field experiences within each major will help develop the skills, abilities and knowledge to solidify career goals and strengthen one’s resume. We know there’s simply no better way to truly understand a subject than by taking what’s learned in the classroom and applying it out in the real world. Whatever the major, a student at Defiance can take their learning from the classroom into our community, across the United States or around the world. Defiance College is home to the nationally acclaimed McMaster School for Advancing Humanity, a program that is unique among colleges and universities across the country. McMaster gives students incredible opportunities to conduct research and service in specially-designed projects around the world. Any student can apply to participate, regardless of major. For example, in a third world village in Cambodia or Belize or Tanzania, a student majoring in molecular biology major can analyze water safety, a digital forensic science student can instruct children on internet safety, an education major can teach in classrooms, and a business administration student can help a women’s organization create a business plan to open a new restaurant. The Presidential Service Leader Program, part of the McMaster School, is designed for students who have served and led their community in some way, and who want to continue that commitment at Defiance. Students can apply your academic expertise, leadership skills and service in Project 701, a one-of-a-kind, student-run nonprofit organization in which students create, develop and run their own business or project. Defiance is consistently recognized by the prestigious President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. We are at the forefront of colleges across the country that embrace service and engagement, and we incorporate it into a DC education. Defiance College is also home of the Hench Autism Studies Program, an innovative, multi-faceted program designed to specifically address the late adolescent years and the transition of individuals with autism to adulthood. The newest addition is the ASD Affinity Program supporting college students with ASD in reaching their full potential. Varying levels of academic, social and residential support are designed to aid students in meeting their personal and professional goals. Student life is an important part of a Defiance College 3education. Activities include student government, musical and theater groups, religious organizations, intercultural organizations, honor societies, special interest groups, intramural athletics and Greek chapters including a service fraternity. As a national leader in the field of service learning and engagement, DC teaches students to take the knowledge they have gained and use it to change lives for the better in their communities, in distant villages, and in their careers. Approximately 10,000 men and women across the globe claim Defiance College as their alma mater, and they excel in all walks of life.

ATHLETIC FACILITIES The Defiance College Athletic Department is housed in the McMaster Center. The McMaster Center is named in honor of Drs. Harold and Helen McMaster and has played an intricate part in the growth and development of Yellow Jacket athletics. The McMaster Center houses administration and coach’s offices, but is also where the Karl H. Weaner Center, McMaster Gymnasium and one of three athletic training facilities are housed. The Karl H. Weaner Center is the home of the Yellow Jacket men’s and women’s basketball programs as well as the volleyball program. The newly redesigned arena features new seating and floor, as well as a full working press box with internet connection and web casting capabilities. Adjacent to the McMaster Center, is the recently completed George M. Smart Athletic Center. The George, is an 84,000 square-foot field house which opened in February of 2012. The multi-purpose floor provides additional year-round training areas for all 22 varsity athletic programs, but is officially home to the DC indoor track and field teams. The George also boasts a full athletic training room, expanded fitness and free-weight McMaster Center areas and two full-lengh batting cages. Located near the McMaster Center are the Yellow Jacket athletic outdoor facilities which include Justin F. Coressel Stadium, Winsper-Knobel Memorial Field, Dix Tennis Courts, Sal Hench Field and Craig A. Rutter Field. Coressel Stadium is field turf, 4,000-seat facility that’s home to the Yellow Jacket football, and men’s and women’s outdoor track & field programs. The facility contains locker rooms, concession stand, training room, team meeting room and a full-working press box with internet connection and web casting capabilities. Winsper-Knobel Field is the main competition facility for the DC men’s and women’s soccer teams. The natural grass field is located just east of the Dix Tennis Facility and Coressel Stadium. The field boasts a press tower with wireless internet access. In addition to the main playing surface, athletes have access to a warm-up and practice field located next to Winsper-Knobel Field. The Dix Tennis Courts are the main competition facility for the DC men’s and women’s tennis teams. In the summer of 2012, the Dix Tennis facility was renovated with a durable, crack resistant surface. The tennis courts are located just east of the Weaner Center. In addition to the outdoor tennis courts, the tennis programs have access to four indoor tennis courts located in The George.. The Yellow Jacket softball team calls Sal Hench Field home. The field was built in 1999-2000 in honor of long-time supporter of the College and DC athletics, Sal Hench. The field features open-faced dugouts and on-field bullpens as well as a two-story press box with concession stand, All-Conference “Wall of Fame” and full sound system. The outfield dimensions are 210 feet all around with a 28-foot by 12 foot inning-by-inning scoreboard in right field which was added in the spring of 2014. Craig A. Rutter Field is the home site for the DC Baseball program. Rutter Field sits in the center of the CD athletics complex. The field features a unique crushed brick infield with all grass baselines and a compacted limestone warning track that accents a Kentucky Bluegrass and Perennial Rye outfield. All this is complimented by visiting and home dugouts, bullpens and the “Green Monster” in center field. In 2004, a press box was added and is equipped with full sound capabilities which provide the Yellow Jackets and their fans with an energetic pre-game atmosphere.

YELLOW JACKETS IN THE COMMUNITY Defiance College has challenged students to defy the ordinary by exploring academic boundaries, taking on roles of civic responsibility and leadership, and becoming engaged on campus and in the community. All of this makes for an extraordinary college experience. Nowhere else will you find students committed to their communities like Defiance, and nowhere else will you find student-athletes and coaches as immersed in service and engagement. Each year, DC student-athletes collectively contribute more than 2,000 hours of service in their community. Several teams have traditional service projects that they perform on an annual basis. Many students are also involved in service through Defiance’s stellar programs such as the McMaster School for Advancing Humanity, the Service Leadership Program, and Project 701. Defiance is among the top 20 schools in the nation for community service and engagement as a Presidential Award Finalist for the 2013 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. DC is one of only four colleges and universities in the Midwest to receive this prestigious recognition. Defiance is featured for excellence in blending academics with community work by The Princeton Review in its Colleges with a Conscience: 81 Great Schools with Outstanding Community Involvement.

ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT PHILOSOPHY The Defiance College intercollegiate athletics program serves as a window of opportunity for all prospective student-athletes to experience an extra-curricular educational and physical activity that fits within the general mission of the college to develop the whole person. The student-athlete will be exposed to a variety of opportunities for personal growth in the areas of intellectual, emotional, spiritual, social and physical dimensions as it relates to each individual and their respective sport. The student-athlete, as a team member, will be involved in a learning community that will strive for excellence both on the field and in the classroom while maintaining a dignity of fair play and continued emphasis on positive sportsmanship. Jointly, the coaches and student-athletes will build an engaged environment that will accentuate the learning process not only within the competitive arena but also within the college campus and the community as a whole. An emphasis will

14

be placed on the impact of participation and personal growth, rather than scoreboard success, in a balanced sports program where equitable sports opportunities will be available to both genders. The student-athletes of Defiance choose to participate in the intercollegiate athletics program for a variety of reasons but none of which includes athletic related financial aid or the promise of financial security through professional athletic stardom. Through participation in the intercollegiate athletics program, a student-athlete continues to compete for the love of sport, the thrill of competition and the fulfillment of countless intrinsic values. The Defiance intercollegiate athletics program strives to be an integral and cohesive part of the collegiate learning and living process, appropriately well suited to co-exist with the Defiance mission statement…to know, to lead, to serve and to understand.

HEARTLAND COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC CONFERENCE Originally founded as the Indiana Collegiate Athletic Conference, the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference has been in existance for over 25 years and has gone through several changes throughout the years. In June of 1987, the presidents of six private Indiana colleges and universities announced the formation of an athletic conference to allow their students to “live out” the ideal of the scholar athlete. The announcement came after 19 months of meetings among the institution’s presidents, athletic directors, and faculty athletic representatives. The ICAC was formed as an “academic” athletic conference, combining outstanding private education with top-notch intercollegiate athletics. Lewis Salter was President of Wabash College when the league was formed. The greatest advantage of the Indiana Collegiate Athletic Conference is that its formation allowed schools to restore athletic rivalries that date back to the 1800’s. Conference sports include baseball, basketball, cross-country, golf, football, soccer, tennis, and track. In addition, a championship is decided in the non-mandatory sports of swimming and wrestling. On May 24, 1988, just less than one year after its formation, two more of Indiana’s premier small colleges, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and Taylor University joined the league, bringing the total number of schools to eight. Taylor was involved in the ICAC’s first meetings in the spring of 1987, but declined membership until 1988. The 1990-91 season marked the first complete year of competition among all eight schools in all eightvarsity sports with soccer joining the picture in the fall of 1990. The 1992-93 school year brought with it much discussion and many meetings in an attempt to bring women’s teams into the ICAC. After a long year of planning and a constitutional rewrite, women’s teams joined the ICAC late in the 1992-93 school year with 1993-94 the first year of co-ed competition within the ICAC. The 1998-99 school year brought significant changes in the conference. With the additions of Bluffton College, the College of Mount St. Joseph, and Wilmington College and the departure of DePauw University and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, the Indiana Collegiate Athletic Conference changed its name to become the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference. As an extension of the ICAC, the HCAC is an eight school academic athletic conference, which represents a revised version the old Hoosier-Buckeye Conference. The 1999-2000 school year saw yet more changes. Wabash’s competition in the 1999 football season marked its last involvement in the HCAC. Defiance College joined the league, beginning competition in the spring of 2000. In January of 2001, Transylvania University in Lexington, Kentucky, was accepted as a member. Transylvania began competition in the fall 2001 season. In July of 2006, Rose Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana, was accepted as the conference’s ninth member. Rose Hulman began competition in the fall of 2006. As part of a year-long celebration in 2008-09, the league celebrated its 10th anniversary as the restructured HCAC. Each institution invited campus administrators, faculty, faculty athletic representatives, current or former athletic staff, alumni, and student-athletes. Also, the conference office invited current and former conference personnel, NCAA Division III select staff, and other key supporters of the HCAC. Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana was accepted as the 10th member of the conference in October of 2009 and began competition in the fall of 2010. On the playing field, HCAC member schools have had a national impact, highlighted by national champions in several sports and two schools making trips to the NCAA Division III basketball Final Four in the 1990s. Since the formation of the HCAC, members have produced 62 CoSIDA Academic All-Americans, 164 All-Americans, and 163 team qualifiers for NCAA Division III national championships. The league continues to seek growth and excellence on and off the playing field in the years to come.

SEASON PREVIEW DEFIANCE, OHIO – The Defiance College women’s basketball team brings back plenty of experience as they make another push at a Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference title in 2016-17. The Yellow Jackets finished with a 7-19 record overall last season and a 6-12 mark in HCAC play. This season, DC has been picked to finish sixth by the coaches in the preseason poll. The Yellow Jackets bring back all five starters from a year ago, including the reigning conference Most Valuable Player in senior Kelsey Tietje (Deshler/Patrick Henry). GUARDS Defiance will return its entire backcourt this season in seniors Erica Smay (Defiance/Tinora), Ashley Williams (Leipsic/Pandora-Gilboa) and junior Whitney Schalk (Bellevue). All three players started all 26 games last year with Williams finishing third on the team in scoring a year ago, averaging 7.2 points per contest. Williams shot 62-of-176 from the floor overall (35.2 percent) and led the team with a 34.8 percentage from beyond the arc, making 54 of her 155 attempts. Williams was also second on the team with 57 assists (2.2 per game) and finished second in steals with 25. Smay finished just behind Williams’ mark from a year ago, averaging 6.7 points per game. Smay shot 31.1 percent from the floor (56-of-180) and 29.4 percent (37-of-126) from deep. Smay brought in 3.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists per contest, as well, for the Yellow Jackets. Schalk was the team’s starting point guard and led the conference in assists, averaging 5.8 per contest and finishing the year with 151, the fourth most in Defiance College history for assists in a season. Schalk also led the team with 33 steals. She also grabbed 87 rebounds (3.3 rpg.) and 91 points

TIETJE

(3.5 ppg.). In addition to the three returning starters, look for juniors Mekai White (Cincinnati/Winton Woods) and Brittany Osborne (Union City, Ind./ Union City) to see their share of playing time off the bench. White had a solid second season with the Yellow Jackets, scoring 99 points (3.8 ppg.) and grabbing 34 rebounds (1.3 rpg.). White made 35of-126 attempts, shooting 27.8 percent. Most of those shots were from beyond the arc, as White shot 28-of-108 for a 25.9 percent clip. White also finished with 18 assists on the year. Osborne continues her role as a guard and forward in 2016-17. Osborne came off the bench to play in all 26 contests a year ago, scoring 78 points (3.0 ppg.) and bringing down 63 boards (2.4 rpg.). Osborne shot 28-of-72 from the field, (38.9 percent) and went seven-of-17 (41.2 percent) from three-point range. In addition, she converted 15of-19 attempts from the free-throw line for a 78.9 percentage. FORWARDS The Yellow Jackets also bring back the bulk of their forwards from a season ago, including threetime first-team All-HCAC and reigning Player-ofthe-Year in Tietje. As a junior, Tietje finished atop the HCAC in points per game (19.7) and rebounds per game (12.4). Tietje’s 512 points was the second most points in a season in school history, and also brought her career total to 1,400. Tietje finished with 322 rebounds, leading the HCAC by nearly 100 rebounds and ranking her second in rebounds in a season in program history. Tietje also led the conference with 60 blocked shots. She ended the season with a 51.8 shooting percentage, making 183-of-353 attempts from the floor and was the conference leader in free-throw shooting, coverting 143-of-179 attempts (79.9 percent). In addition to Tietje, sophomore Sam Ervin (Bloomdale/Elmwood) started all 26 in 2015-16. Ervin finished second on the team in scoring at 9.1 ppg and also added 132 rebounds (5.1 rpg.). She made 98-of-237 (41.4 percent) shots from the floor and 40-of-68 (58.8 percent) from the free-throw line. Ervin also added 13 assists, 10 blocks, and eight assists in her freshman season. Senior Keri Conine came off the bench in all 26 games at the forward position last year. Conine scored 122 points (4.7 ppg.) on 46-of-140 shooting (32.9 percent). Conine also shot 12-of-41 (29.3 percent) from long range and 18-of-26 (69.2 percent) from the free-throw line.

The excitement for this season within the team is high and comes with more maturity than we’ve seen in years. We look forward to what we’ll be able to accomplish together. The time is now!”

College (2010-12) Jessica (Cox) Morris enters her fifth season as the head coach of the Yellow Jackets women’s basketball program in 2016-17. Morris led DC to a 14-12 (117 Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference) in her first season at the helm in 2012-13, which were the best overall and conference records since the 2009-10 campaign. She guided the team to multiple achievements including an 8-3 home record, a six-game winning streak and a fourth-straight appearance in the HCAC tournament. In four seasons, Morris has coached 11 All-HCAC student-athletes, including four players who’ve garnered first-team accolades. Her player’s success on the court has also carried over into the classroom with a total of 18 Academic All-HCAC honors. Before joining the Purple and Gold, Morris accumulated seven years of coaching experience. The Galena, Illinois native most recently served as the assistant coach at NCAA Division III Whitman College. The Missionaries went 31-21 from 2010-2012 with Morris on the staff, including a 21-11 mark within the Northwest Conference. She helped Whitman improve its record in each of her two years with the squad, while overseeing the strength and conditioning and recruiting efforts of the program.

Prior to moving to Walla Walla, Washington to join the WC coaching staff, Morris went 32-15 as the head coach at Waterford Mott High in Michigan. She guided the Corsairs to a six-win improvement in her second year, saw the team win league and district championships and was a nominee for Oakland County Coach of the Year by the Basketball Coaches Association for Michigan. Morris got her start on the bench as an assistant coach at Augustana College, while working as the coach of the junior varsity program at the D-III institution. Before jumping into the coaching ranks, she started every game of her record-setting, four-year career on the planks with the University of Dubuque. She was a captain of the team in each of her final two seasons and earned all-conference honors as a senior. Morris ended her standout Division III career with Dubuque as the program’s all-time leader with 247 made three-point shots and a 34.8 percent clip from beyond the arc. The sharpshooter also left with the school’s top free-throw percentage at a crisp 80.0 mark, ranked third with 298 assists and fourth with 1,328 points. Morris graduated from Dubuque in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in health, wellness and recreation and earned a minor in coaching. She is married to her husband, Tim, and the couple resides in Defiance.
