A Reflection On Community
Edgewood College Today
AN INCREASING COMMITMENT TO RECYCLED PAPER A commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability resonates deeply at the College, a legacy begun by the native people who first cared for this very special 55-acre campus on the shore of Lake Wingra. The College is honored to be part of the legacy of sustainability that we inherit. With the publication of this edition, weâ€™re taking additional steps to try to be good stewards of the environment. The symbol above corresponds to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), an international, nonprofit, membership-based organization that brings people together to find solutions to the problems created by poor forestry practices and to reward good forest management.

We’re Listening… It’s not surprising that this year’s Common Reading Selection Listening is an Act of Love has had such an impact during our Year of Community. How well we relate to each other – in our families, our workplaces and where we live – very much depends on how we listen to each other, and how committed we are to taking what we hear to heart. As a member of the Edgewood College community, you’re often asked to share information with us, through surveys, Phonathon callers, and other means. It’s important that you know that we’re listening. Our Communication Studies department is adding a new course in Social Media because of feedback from our Advisory Board, which is comprised of professionals in various communicationrelated fields around Madison, including alumni.

In our School of Nursing, we’ve added Nursing Administration and Nursing Education Certificate programs, added an MBA/ MS dual degree program, and added a finance course to our Nursing Administration graduate degree. All of these changes started as alumni feedback and suggestions. Those are just two examples – there are many more. And maybe most important of all, when you, our alumni, tell us about what you’ve accomplished in your professional (or personal) life, and we can share that news, great things happen. We see record freshman classes like the one we have on campus now. We see a more a diverse campus community with a higher academic profile. Communicating your accomplishments adds a deeper meaning to your degree, and to the degrees earned by all Edgewood College students. So let us hear from you! We are all members of lots of communities. Help us share with your fellow alumni, and with future graduates, a story from one of your communities. When you do, you’re telling future generations how much the you love this place where the tradition of study, reflection, and action moves from words on a page to lives of leadership and service. And remember, we’re listening. Send us your news at firstname.lastname@example.org, or give us a call at 608.663.2245. It’s great to stay connected in the community of Edgewood College.

hat exactly does Community mean to us?
As part of the preparation for this academic year–the “Year of Community”–the Deans’ Council and the President’s Leadership Team proposed common language surrounding this particular value as a way to stimulate
WINTER.10//EDGEWOOD COLLEGE MAGAZINE
study, reflection, and action on campus. During August Seminar Days, faculty and staff across multiple areas of the College engaged in dialogue around this common language and the ways in which community informs our teaching, learning, and work. The result of that shared endeavor appears here. Examining our values and making explicit the roles they play on our campus brings our Mission alive in important ways.
LEARNING: ANCHORED IN OUR DOMINICAN HERITAGE…
A Sinsinawa Dominican education celebrates a diverse and collaborative community. Students are taught to share their talents and insights, to collaborate with others, to recognize diversity and differences in our world with respect. Students thrive in an atmosphere in which they experience God’s love in others, inspiring them to make a difference beyond campus and classroom – in their families, their community, their places of worship, and the world.
1. Community is one of Edgewood’s five Sinsinawa Dominican values and serves as one of four pillars of a Dominican Education.
2. Community calls us to… • Recognize the interdependence of all nature; • Nurture relationships that enhance the well-being of persons, earth, and all beings; • Communicate honestly and openly; and • Value cooperation and collaboration. 3. We “do community” when we focus on relationships and relatedness. For us, relationships are at the heart of ministry and mission, and community is at the core of good teaching and learning.
BELIEFS: WHAT DOES THIS REALLY MEAN TO US… 4. Communities, like individuals, are diverse and dynamic entities that necessarily evolve. As members come and go, as events from within and outside have an influence, communities adapt to ensure their sustainability. 5. Real communities are complex. While they can be uplifting and inclusive, validating the importance of all of their members, they also can be messy, challenging, and exclusive. We believe the cycle of study, reflection, and action is the best model we have to honor the complex nature of community and avoid complacency in our responsibility to embrace the inherent tensions and contradictions that will exist.
ACTION: WHAT IS THIS CALLING US TO DO… 6. All of us have responsibility in our community of teaching, learning, and living to cultivate and model the community to which our Sinsinawa Dominican heritage calls us. 7. Every time we gather together or connect with another is an opportunity to enact community.
9. Just as the Edgewood College community is comprised of several “neighborhoods,” so, too, is our college one neighborhood among many in the Greater Madison area and beyond. We believe that we are not just in the community but also of the community. This belief calls us to authentic engagement with our communities in ways that reflect our interdependence. 10. Despite our best efforts to create and sustain the community we desire, we will fall short. Thus, community requires that we hold each other accountable but also practice compassion and forgiveness.
WINTER.10//EDGEWOOD COLLEGE MAGAZINE
8. Telling our stories—as reflected in the lived experiences of our students, faculty, and staff—is essential to celebrating our community, to enhancing our community, and gaining insight into how our community is experienced.
On Practicing COMMUNITY B Y D E A N P R I B B E N O W, D E A N O F T H E S C H O O L O F I N T E G R AT I V E S T U D I E S
dgewood College is a special place. For our students, it is home for four and sometimes five years (but hopefully not six years); for others who work here, it is where we spend a significant part of our time. So it is reasonable to think that – given the time that we’ll spend here – this place will have an effect on us.
WINTER.10//EDGEWOOD COLLEGE MAGAZINE
But I believe it’s not only what effect this place has on us, it’s also what impact we can have on this place. In fact, I believe that we have not fulfilled our purpose as an institution if we don’t cultivate in all of us the practices and habits of mind that lead us to do community. Now, as we know, community means many things to many people. Recently, I was near the Wingra Commons when I noticed a young mother scurrying down the hallway with her five-year old son in tow. I overheard her saying, “Well, I told you. Lots of students actually go to school here and live here.” I could tell the boy was puzzling over this, when I heard him reply, “If they live here, where is the Laundromat?” Of course, belonging to community means more than just living there, and it certainly means more than having quick and easy access to a Laundromat – important as that is. In fact, I would like to offer three observations that reflect some of my most recent thinking on belonging and community, and which I hope encourage—and perhaps challenge—each of you to consider deeper dimensions of your experience of community at Edgewood.
First, belonging to a community means seeking knowledge of that community. Wendell Berry, a favorite poet of mine, writes this in one of his poems in a recent collection entitled Leavings: Hope then to belong to your place by your own knowledge of what it is that no other place is, and by your caring for it as you care for no other place, this place that you belong to though it is not yours….Belong to your place by knowledge of the others who are your neighbors in it (Sabbaths 2007, p. 91). This place—this community—was here before we arrived and will be here after we go. While we’re here, while we belong, we must seek knowledge of it and those in it, and care for it and for them. A second observation is this: belonging to a community means being willing to challenge that community. During August, a one-page document (see page 6 of this Magazine) was circulated among our colleagues on campus that offers some reflections on what we mean by community at Edgewood. If you haven’t seen it, I encourage you to study and reflect upon whether it is consonant with your understanding of community. One section of it states: Real communities are complex. While they can be uplifting and inclusive, validating the importance
this community, be willing to challenge our community, and commit to doing community.
The challenge of community is being willing to hold it accountable, to confront it when it’s not living up to values, to its promises. Keeping our community at its best may require making it known when we are not at our best. I challenge each of you to speak up, to act, when you see an incongruence between our professed values and our actions.
In the end, it may come down to what Peter Block reminds us of in his recent book, Community: The Structure of Belonging: “For at the most [basic] level, after all the thinking about policy, strategy, mission, and milestones, it gets down to this: How are we going to be when we gather together?...Weaving and strengthening the fabric of community is a collective effort and starts from a shift in our mindset about our connectedness.”
Finally, belonging to community means “doing” community. It’s true that community is lived out in smaller neighborhoods and in personal relationships— something truly Dominican. To do community we must be active in those neighborhoods, we must join them: I challenge you to become involved in and engaged with our community—whether your chosen neighborhood is your courses, a student organization, service projects, athletics, in the residence halls, a committee, planning events, or some other group of interest.
of all of their members, they also can be messy, challenging, and exclusive.
May you all experience the best of this connectedness that we call Edgewood College.
Because when we join, a few things happen: • We get to know others, and others get to know us; • We are able to tell our stories and listen to others’ stories; and • This telling and listening allows us, in meaningful ways, to do community—to build it, to sustain it, and to celebrate it.
So, in this year of community, I wish for all of us that we will experience community in its truest and best sense, and I believe that will happen if we seek knowledge of
WINTER.10//EDGEWOOD COLLEGE MAGAZINE
I believe the College not only represents community, but also teaches us how to be good community-builders and good stewards of community. Someone recently shared with me a conversation that she had with an important Madison employer. That employer said, essentially, that she is thrilled every time she is able to hire an Edgewood graduate because our students are much better equipped to work in the community than other colleges’ graduates. This certainly is a testament to our students, and to our faculty and staff, who place such emphasis on helping students connect their learning to community and leadership.

uring Freshman Orientation incoming students attended Civic Action Projects (CAP) to become more aware of social issues, and to get involved. This year, with the beginning of the new COR program, several professors chose to incorporate these projects into the theme of their COR classes. The projects covered a variety of topics; from learning about issues faced by students with disabilities and participating in a scavenger hunt with the “Cutting Edge” students, to getting a tour of State Street and learning about its role in the Madison community. For Susan Nanning-Sorenson’s “Perspectives in Puppetry” class students created puppets from junk materials, performed with them to various children’s songs, recorded the performances onto a DVD and will be sending both the puppets and a copy of the DVD to a community center in Guatemala. The students also added personal notes to each puppet, giving the puppet’s name and telling something about the puppet’s personality. In the CAP “Stairway to Heaven” led by Tim Andrews in connection with his COR class “Spirituality and the Environment,” students built a stairway from the Edgewood boardwalk to Park and Pleasure drive on campus. They also removed invasive plant species around the boardwalk. Andrews says, “students got to know each other as they worked hard as a team to get the job done in a matter of a few hours. They also were introduced to

some of the history of this place, adjacent to a series of ancient Indian burial mounds. The weather cooperated beautifully and a good time was had by all in creating the lasting legacy, the final stairway to heaven, by this Class of Community.” Hannah Hocevar, a student in professor John Leonard’s “Spirituality and the Environment” COR course, felt she had her eyes opened on the topic of death when she visited the Gene & Linda Farley Center for Peace, Justice and Sustainability during her CAP project “Ecospirituality and Sustainable Agriculture.” “I came to realize that we don’t need to spend so much money on preserving the body before we bury it. Instead, a natural burial is not only better for the earth but for our spirit, too. The man who owned the property buried his wife three feet underground with no chemical preservation and wrapped in a Navaho blanket. This event brought his family together as they dug their own hole. Together they cried and shared emotions, but when it was done they planted a tree above their passed family member. To this day the man’s 3-year-old niece is left with the wonderful idea that grandma is feeding the tree. In burying someone naturally, we are giving back what the earth gave us.” These experiences are only the beginning for the new students at Edgewood College. Throughout their three COR experiences, they will have opportunities to explore the ideas and issues around them, from the Edgewood College campus, to the Madison area, and around the world. Welcome class of community!

A Reflection (Editor’s note: Ms. Gandara is a senior, and is a doublemajor in French and Communication Studies. She’s originally from Guatemala City, Guatemala.)
irst, a quote that is very meaningful to me by Anthony Burgess: “Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community”
WINTER.10//EDGEWOOD COLLEGE MAGAZINE
Being involved in a community provides a sense of belonging, where you can give without expecting anything in return, where you can share your talents and learn from others and most importantly where you can provide unconditional support to those who need it and be supported as well. Edgewood College is such a special community to be a part of. There are so many different opportunities that are presented to students where everyone can succeed. It is a place where students, faculty, and staff are very supportive and help others reach their goals and make their dreams come true. A short story, which has made a significant impact on my life: In the beginning of my junior year, I had just returned from a trip to my home country, Guatemala. While I was there, I visited an elementary school in a very poor, rural village near my father’s farm. The children at this school whose families live on less than a dollar a day and do not have very much, still radiate with joy, which inspired me very much. Upon returning to Edgewood, I felt a need to help these children in some way, so I started talking with different people in different departments. I had heard about the Alternative Break program through College Ministries, but had never participated in one. I
decided to take it upon myself to organize an alternative break trip to Guatemala. This trip meant giving the opportunity to my fellow students to see what I saw, and hopefully inspire them. Along with the help of many people around campus and after many hours of hard work, this trip was possible! There were thirteen other students, one faculty and one staff member that came with my father and me to Guatemala in May. I felt privileged to participate with my peers in renovating the school, taking donations of clothing and school supplies, and making a difference in so many children’s lives by improving their facilities, and by simply spending time with them. The last day at the school, we were each given drawings made by the children. There were many expressions of gratitude along with many tears - tears of joy and appreciation. This opportunity made a change in the community we served, in the communities we visited, and provided a life-changing experience to those who participated in the trip. As I was reflecting on this experience, I realized I had no idea that while creating this opportunity for the children in Guatemala, I would also have the power to build community among my fellow students. I ask all of us to get involved in different communities while at Edgewood College, whether it is in your residence hall, in a student organization, or in the Greater Madison community. Getting involved is a great way to create a sense of caring, build a community among your peers, and live-out Edgewood’s core values through different experiences. I would also like to challenge you to think

of ways in which you could build a community. Each and every one of us is able to join in a community, but we should also realize that we have the power to take the initiative, and create community.

WHERE IN THE WORLD? Education Professor Peter Burke shared this from his recent travels: “Thought you might like to know that when I go on hunting or fishing trips I usually take along Edgewood College shirts for guide gifts. The guide in this photo is a social studies teacher in Rigby, Idaho, and guides out of a fly shop in Montana. I gave him the shirt last year, and when he guided us this year he made sure he wore it!”
DUNBAR PUBLISHES TEXTBOOK: WOMEN, MUSIC, CULTURE – AN INTRODUCTION An important book project – thanks to the work of several members of the College community – is nearing completion. An undergraduate music textbook written by Professor Julie Dunbar will be published this winter. Women, Music, Culture – An Introduction (Routledge) will be available in January 2011.
WINTER.10//EDGEWOOD COLLEGE MAGAZINE
The publisher says “clear writing, compelling narrative, and more than fifty guided listening examples bring the world of women in music to life.” Professor Dunbar says “another really great thing is that three of our students had key roles in creating the final textbook product. Ryan Dolan (current music major) did the music notation work, Jessica Kellogg (art major, class of 2010) did graphic design, and Lisa Kaminski (editor of On The Edge) did photo research and proofreading.” The book is being marketed in the United Kingdom, Latin America, Canada and the U. S.

HISTORY PROFESSOR SPEAKS AT MARQUETTE History Professor Andrew Witt delivered a lecture at the Haggerty Museum of Art at Marquette University in Milwaukee on September 15, part of a special photographic exhibit by Stephen Shames. Mr. Shames chronicled the Black Panther Party through his photography during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Witt’s lecture, Picking Up the Hammer: Re-thinking the Black Panther Party, explored some of the misconceptions about the controversial group. In February 2007, Professor Witt published The Black Panthers in the Midwest: The Community Programs and Services of the Black Panther Party in Milwaukee, 1966-1977.
‘LISTENING’ ON CAMPUS This year’s Common Reading selection, Listening is an Act of Love, is proving to be an inspired choice for the College. In October, the College hosted ‘Listening is an Act of Love – An Evening with Dave Isay.’ The editor of the New York Times bestseller delivered both laughter and tears at the annual Siena/Common Reading Lecture in Anderson Auditorium.
“The Edgewood Stories Project is a great opportunity for our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends,” says Associate Director of Student Activities, John Mleziva. “Sharing our life stories with a loved one, friend or acquaintance has a special sort of power – a power that can remain through generations.” Participants in the Edgewood Stories Project will be given a CD of their conversation, and will have the option to have their story archived as part of an oral history of the Edgewood College community. For information about participating in the Edgewood Stories Project, please contact the Alumni Office at alumni@ edgewood.edu, or at 608.663.2245.
WINTER.10//EDGEWOOD COLLEGE MAGAZINE
The College has launched the Edgewood Stories Project. This year-long initiative is modeled after the StoryCorps Project, created by Mr. Isay. “The heart of StoryCorps is the conversation between two people who are important to each other: a son asking his mother about her childhood, an immigrant telling his friend about coming to America, or a couple reminiscing on their 50th wedding anniversary,” Isay said.

EXCURSIONS By Amy Schiebel, Associate Professor of Natural Science Seeing is believing. Seeing is also learning. This is the philosophy of the new suite of science courses called “Excursions.” It is difficult to understand what a mountain is, or an anticline, a coastal wetland, a butte or an alpine glacier, if you have never seen one; and pictures are a poor substitute. Our science students are striving to understand the natural world and one way to help them is to take them out to see that world. The idea for excursions was born in 2005, in an Environmental Geology class. After doing some activities focused on volcanoes and volcanism, the students decided that they needed to go see one. The students set out to plan a trip to Mount St. Helens. The trip included a research project and comprised not only a trip to the volcano but also a trip around the Olympic Peninsula looking at old growth forests, coastal processes and coastal ecology. Even being stranded by a delayed flight in Salt Lake City turned into an exploration of Mormonism. Since then our students have experienced canyons, buttes and mesas of the desert southwest, hydrologic processes on the Mississippi River, the Everglades and the Florida Keys, and Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas. Students meet as a class in the weeks before the trip portion of the course to study the natural history of the area being visited. We pay particular attention to environmental issues and how the tenants of sustainability are applied, or not, in the region. We also study the history of human habitation in the area. Each student takes one aspect and is charged with becoming the resident expert. They are called upon to give impromptu lectures while on the trip and are the
“go-to” person for questions related to their chosen topic. In addition to the academic portion of the class students learn about community at the very local level (tent and van buddies) and at the national level as they see that, despite geographic distance, our actions can have a profound effect on the quality of our environment (think gulf oil spill). The long-term goal of the course is to continue to offer one section that travels domestically over Spring Break, a section that travels in the summer for a more extended period of time to the mountains in the western U.S. and Canada, and an international trip that would run during Winterim. The science department has experience leading student trips domestically and internationally and the breadth of our faculty experience and expertise ensures that this course goal will be met in the near future. In the Spring of 2011, “Excursions” students will return to the Gulf Coast to revisit some of the areas we saw on our last Louisiana trip. The focus then was on environmental issues related to Hurricane Katrina. This trip, we’ll spend most of our time in areas affected by the Deepwater Horizon/BP Oil Spill. Right now some of the exact destinations include Port Fourchon (which services Gulf of Mexico oil platforms), Grand Isle (a barrier island heavily affected by hurricanes), Dauphin Island (affected by hurricanes and the oil spill), and Mobile Bay. (Editor’s note: Thanks to a grant from the Henry J. Predolin Foundation, the College has secured two new vans for “Excursions” trips, and other field work for our students.)

HENRY J. PREDOLIN FOUNDATION GRANT Edgewood College is pleased to announce the receipt of a $575,000 grant from the Henry J. Predolin Foundation. The award includes funding for undergraduate scholarships for students majoring in Business, Nursing, and Science; equipment for the College’s science programs; and $100,000 toward a scholarship matching gift program. Under the program, the Foundation will match gifts to undergraduate scholarships in Business, Nursing, and Science dollar for dollar, up to $5,000. The scholarships will be distributed in the 2011-2012 academic year. A similar matching gift campaign was undertaken in 2008-2009, which resulted in more than 360 gifts toward scholarship support. Henry Predolin served on the Edgewood College Board of Trustees from 1988 to 1991, and was instrumental in developing the vision for the campus master plan. At the time of his death, Henry established the Henry J. Predolin Foundation to honor the memory of his son, Henry J. Predolin. The foundation generously supports Edgewood College by funding educational opportunities in the Schools of Business and Nursing, and in the Science Departments.
This fall, the College conferred the Doctor of Humane Letters degree upon Pleasant Rowland. Students, faculty, staff and Board members welcomed Ms. Rowland in an informal, but meaningful ceremony. Entrepreneur, businesswoman, and patron of the arts, she is first and foremost an educator. Our students and guests enjoyed a wonderful opportunity to spend time in an informal ‘conversation’ with Dr. Rowland. The large crowd in Anderson Auditorium listened - and laughed - through the stories of the ups and downs of her remarkable career, and her current work with the Rowland Reading Foundation. Jane Belmore, Dean of the School of Education (on the left), served as moderator for “A Conversation With Pleasant Rowland.”

LUFT PRESENTS WORK IN BERLIN Art professor Alan Luft enjoyed a busier-than-usual fall semester. In addition to his classroom duties, he presented a collection of his black and white photography at the Photoplatz Gallery, in Berlin, Germany. The one-man exhibit was part of the European Month of Photography, with exhibits in Berlin, Bratislava, Moscow, Paris, Rome, and Vienna. “Since 1985 I have made nearly eleven thousand negatives in Berlin, Germany,” Luft said. “These black and white photographs examine the diverse communities of the city. My German ethnicity and social class origin are two motivating factors in my desire to understand other people’s identities.” Luft says he hopes his latest accomplishment will serve as an inspiration to students both today, and in the future. “As an educator I feel strongly that we must inspire students to ‘make things happen’ both professionally and personally,” Luft said. “My own individual accomplishments have been included in my classes here at the College, as an example of this process. I have used my Berlin Portfolio as a model for intellectual and technical inquiry in all of my courses.” Posters publicizing the event went up in one hundred kiosks in the Berlin public transportation system.

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT, DANIEL J. CAREY This year’s freshmen—the “Class of Community”—number 327 students, the most the College has ever welcomed to begin a new academic year. While Wisconsin students continue to comprise the majority of freshmen, the class of 2014 also includes students from Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan, Georgia, and Colorado. Our graduate programs collectively and our returning adult programs also saw significant increases in enrollment. We set a new record for our freshman-sophomore retention rate. We achieved a 78% rate of return, breaking the record of the past two years. This is a clear indication of student satisfaction with their educational experience. Continuing the trend of recent years, fully 95 percent of these new students are receiving scholarships and grants.
In all, we’ll administer more than $4.4 million in scholarships and grants to the freshman class, which is another all-time high for the College. We’ll continue to work to be sure that an Edgewood College education is available for those who want to be a part of our learning community. These young people recognize the opportunity we offer to link what happens in the classroom with what’s happening in the world around us. This year’s incoming class will be the first to study under our new General Education curriculum. The COR curriculum (cor is taken from the College motto) encourages our students to examine the connections between their learning, beliefs and actions to examine some essential questions: “Who am I and who can I become? What are the needs and opportunities of the world? What is my role in building a just and compassionate world?”
Rest assured that we continue to work to put our students first in everything we do. And we stay focused on our Mission, our Values, and our Strategic Plan. Our new General Education curriculum drives a challenging, engaging learning experience for our full-time undergraduates. Our financial health remains very strong as we continue to take a sound, planned approach to budgets. And a new Visual & Theatre Arts facility—on track to be ready for Fall 2012—will enhance our ability to serve all our students, strengthen the quality of the learning experience, and ultimately increase our enrollment capacity. We will continue to work in partnership with you, as part of our Community of Learners, to realize our vision, and to affirm and embrace the commitment to our Mission. I know
I speak for our faculty, staff, and Trustees when I say “Thank You” for your support for the College. Your referral of quality students and your annual gifts to the College are a major reason for our success. During this season of Thanksgiving, we are thankful for your confidence in Edgewood College and for your generosity. May the Good Lord continue to bless you and yours.

MEN’S GOLF: CONSISTENT EAGLES CLAIM NAC CHAMPIONSHIP The men’s golf team has been fighting a pattern of great first rounds, followed by less than stellar second rounds all season. Fortunately, the Eagles figured out the right moment to correct their second-day struggles. The Eagles claimed their third conference title in school history at the Northern Athletics Conference Fall Championship. Head coach Gary Oftedahl’s squad claimed the title by 11 strokes over MSOE and 20 strokes over Benedictine. On the first day, it was Logan Kranz who nearly single-handedly kept the Eagles in contention by shooting a 71 while none of his teammates broke 80. On the second day, Kranz struggled to an 86, but Andrew Cobb, Mike Schilling and Mike Battista all shot in the 70’s. Cobb finished the tournament with a score of 155, which was good enough for a fourth place finish. Kranz hung on for a topfive finish of his own scoring 157.
(L to R) Head Coach Gary Oftedahl, Assistant Coach Aaron Gavin, Brent Quade, Logan Kranz, Andrew Cobb, Mike Battista, Mike Schilling, Assistant Coach Tom Kubel.
Schilling ended up tied for eighth with a score of 160. Battista and Brent Quade completed the team with scores of 165 and 168, respectively. All five Edgewood College golfers placed in the top 20 in the 50 player event.
Cobb, Quade, Kranz and Schilling all earned all-conference honors by virtue of their performances this season. For Quade, the honor marked his second consecutive all-NAC award. In addition, Schilling earned the league’s Freshman of the Year award.

WOMEN’S SOCCER: SVJOSE TALLIES FIRST GOAL IN NINE YEARS Talk about a lengthy scoring drought. Women’s soccer player Erica Sjvose scored her first goal for the Eagles in nine years, when she tallied a first half goal against Concordia University Chicago on September 25. She had last scored as a freshman during the 2001 season. Svjose, a Madison native and 2001 graduate of LaFollette High School, played for Edgewood College in 2001, scoring eight goals as the Eagles advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the third consecutive season. She left school after that season and spent the next seven years working on a career, but the soccer bug never completely left her. In 2009, Svjose (pronounced sa-VOICE) contacted head coach Tim Alexander and said she wanted to return to school. She told him she would come to Edgewood College if she could have the chance to play soccer again. Coach Alexander agreed and Svjose was back on the team in 2009 after eight years away . Sjvose, now 27 years old, played in 15 games in 2009 and three more in 2010, before scoring a goal. Svjose finished the 2010 season as the fourth leading scorer on the team with three goals and five assists.
The Edgewood College men’s soccer team defeated Illinois College 3-1 on September 5, 2010, to clinch head coach Tim Alexander’s 200th men’s soccer victory. Alexander became just the fifth coach in the history of the NCAA (all divisions) to record both 200 men’s soccer and 200 women’s soccer victories. Alexander, who completed his 21st season with the men’s team and 18th season with the women’s team, joins Findlay (Ohio) coach Andy Smyth, Maryville College (Tenn.) coach Pepe Fernandez and Hendrix College (Tenn.) men’s coach Doug Mello as active coaches in the 200-200 club. University of Portland’s legendary coach, the late Clive Charles, is also a member.
ALEXANDER JOINS ‘200-200’ CLUB
The Edgewood College men’s soccer team finished the 2010 season with a record of 7-11, while the women’s team ended the season 15-5-1, bringing Alexander’s career win total to 206 men’s wins and 244 women’s victories.
WOMEN’S TENNIS: EAGLES CLAIM THIRD STRAIGHT NAC TITLE The women’s tennis team earned a third consecutive conference championship this fall. Shae Beckwith and Amber Hemp both finished their NAC dual match season undefeated in singles play. Beckwith went 11-0 playing at both No. 3 and No. 4 singles, while Hemp posted a 10-0 record primarily at No. 2 singles. Hemp and Jessi Ditzler also concluded an undefeated NAC doubles season, going 10-0 in the No. 2 position. The title marks the 11th women’s tennis championship in College history and the third time that the Eagle women’s tennis program has won three straight conference crowns. The team turned the triple from 1990-92 and then won four straight from 1994-97. The only other Edgewood College teams to win at least three straight conference titles were women’s soccer (eight straight titles, 1994-2001) and men’s basketball (four straight titles, 1992-95).
