MARK

PAVLIK

22nd year at Penn State Career Record: 522-162 ALMA MATER: PENN STATE, 1982

Having been involved in all aspects of the Penn State men's volleyball program as a player, assistant coach and head coach, 2008 AVCA National Coach of the Year Mark Pavlik now enters his 21st year at the helm of the Nittany Lion men's volleyball team in Happy Valley. Capturing the 2008 NCAA National Championship and helping to build the Nittany Lions into one of the premier men's volleyball powers in the nation, Pavlik has compiled a career record of 482-142, winning 77 percent of his matches. Within the Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (EIVA), Pavlik's teams have been even more dominating, racking up 223 wins and only suffering seven league losses in 20 years. A 1982 graduate of Penn State and the 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2014 EIVA Coach of the Year, Pavlik has experienced Penn State from all perspectives. As a player, he was a setter under legendary coach Tom Tait. For five years prior to his promotion, Pavlik served as Coach Tom Peterson's top assistant. During that time, the Nittany Lions compiled a 111-39 record and made four NCAA Tournament appearances, highlighted by the 1994 national title. Pavlik's experience and expertise has not gone unnoticed or unrecognized by those in the volleyball community. "Mark has developed not only one of the best programs in the East, but one of the most outstanding programs in the nation," said USA Volleyball CEO and former longtime USA Men's Volleyball Head Coach Doug Beal. "His teams compete with class at the highest levels, yearin and year-out. Mark brings an unusual passion and thoughtfulness, along with a special rapport with his team every year. USA Volleyball is fortunate to have coaches like Mark coaching at the collegiate level, working with athletes and growing the sport." Drawing from his experiences, Pavlik has developed a unique coaching philosophy that stresses hard work in practice, a relaxed approach to competition, and a determination to develop the well-rounded person and student-athlete. "I feel that the coach's role is extremely critical in training and creating the environment in which the team can improve," Pavlik said. "I think I am more concerned about practices than I am about matches.

Pavlik has coached 24 different players to 45 All-America awards, including two AVCA National Players of the Year. ••• in the middle of this storm, and that is where the calm is supposed to be." Pavlik has guided some of the nation's greatest players during his tenure. In 1997, he coached Ivan Contreras to the AVCA Player of the Year honor and in 2008 Matt Anderson earned the same award, the only times an Eastern player has earned the prestigious honor. He has coached 21 different players (Ivan Contreras, Jason Kepner, Kevin Hourican, Ed Josefoski, Carlos Ortiz, José Quiñones, Zeljko Koljesar, Zach Slenker, Carlos Guerra, Ricky Mattei, Keith Kowal, Nate Meerstein, Matt Proper, Matt Anderson, Luke Murray, Max Holt, Max Lipsitz, Will Price, Dennis Del Valle, Joe Sunder and Edgardo Goas) to 41 All-America awards. At least three of his players have earned first team All-East/All-EIVA accolades each season.

As Pavlik explained, lending an ear goes a long way in coaching.

In the past 26 years, Pavlik has gained considerable experience coaching at the international, national, collegiate and high school levels. He was a member of the AVCA Board of Directors as well as chairman of the AVCA All-America committee. Pavlik was also named EIVA Coach of the Year from 1995-97 and served as the Head of Delegation for the defending Olympic Champion USA men's volleyball team at the America's Cup in Brazil in September, 2008.

"I think the best coaches are the most observant," Pavlik said. "They are good in convincing young people what it takes to succeed in life, not just on the court. "I do not think about coaching as being the boss. Rather, I am here to see how all the parts fit together. I am

During the summer of 1995, Pavlik was a member of the coaching staff of the World University Games team that competed in Japan and finished eighth out of 30 teams. Former Nittany Lion captains Ed Josefoski and Kevin Hourican were team members.

"I have the philosophy that the team is going to win or lose the match. I tend to be more demanding in practice where the work gets done. During the matches, I like to help the team use what they have been trained to use."

COLIN

MCMILLAN 10th-year at Penn State

ALMA MATER: OHIO STATE, 2000

Associate Head Coach Colin McMillan begins his 10th season at Penn State and is involved in all aspects of the program, including opponent video breakdown, training the middle hitters and blocking defense. McMillan was promoted to Associate Head Coach during the summer of 2016 following nine years as an Assistant Coach for Mark Pavlik and the Nittany Lions. McMillan, a former standout at Ohio State from 1997-2000, trained within the United States National pipeline and competed internationally for various clubs around the world. A 6-11 middle hitter, McMillan was a member of the 2001 United States team that captured the gold medal at the World University Games in Beijing, China, and also was a member of the U.S. World League team in 2001. From 2000 to 2005, he was the starting middle hitter for the Besiktas Volleyball Club in Istanbul, Turkey and also played for Castelo da Maia in Portugal, Marseille 13PVB in France and Los Rebeldes de Moca in Puerto Rico, winning the Superior League Championship in 2000. McMillan has also coached internationally with USAV. He assisted the Junior Men's National Team in winning the NORCECA qualifying tournament in Gatineau, Canada in 2010. Most recently, McMillan was an assistant coach for the U.S. Junior National team, which finished fourth in the 2011 World Junior Championships in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. "Colin brought his international experience to the Penn State program and especially with the middle blockers," said head coach Mark Pavlik. "He will continue to work with our blocking and defense scheme development and will continue with his video and scouting responsibilities." McMillan is a four-time All-MIVA selection and a four-year scholar athlete at Ohio State. Named to the 2000 National Collegiate Championship All-Tournament Team, McMillan led the Buckeyes to a national runner-up title that year and finished among the top five in hitting percentage all four years. He is the career record holder at OSU in hitting

percentage (.481), block assists (473) and total blocks (548) and sits eighth in aces (59), second in blocks per game (1.56) and seventh in kills (1,206). During McMillan's tenure, the Buckeyes accumulated a 90-21 overall record with three first-places finishes in the MIVA. A graduate assistant coach for Ohio State during the 2003 season, McMillan has also served as a club coach for several programs, most recently coaching the Excel Volleyball Club 18 boys program in Glenview, Ill. He guided the Next Level 16 boys program in Franklin, Wis., in 2005 and 2006 and coached and supervised the Stellar Sports LLC 15 girls club team in Colorado Springs, Colo., with duties including practice and match coaching as well as travel and on-site supervision. McMillan graduated from Ohio State in 2000 with a double major in international business and marketing, and has worked outside of the volleyball community with such corporations as DePuy Orthopedics and Cosentino North America.

WALTHALL

Second-year at Penn State

ALMA MATER: PENN STATE, 2007

Assistant Coach Ryan Walthall begins his second year at Penn State after being named the assistant coach for the Penn State men's volleyball program on December 1, 2015. Walthall comes to University Park from the Santa Barbara Volleyball Club where he had been since July of 2015. Prior to working with the Santa Barbara Volleyball Club, Walthall was an assistant coach for University of California Santa Barbara. Walthall was responsible for a number of responsibilities with UCSB where he served as the Gauchos' offensive coordinator, helped with recruiting, and handled on video analysis for both scouting and player development. Additionally, he was in charge of organizing team travel throughout the season. Walthall arrived in Santa Barbara from Ohio University where he served as an assistant coach for the women's volleyball team. With the Bobcats, he was the team's defensive coordinator and also provided scouting analysis on Ohio opponents. Walthall found early success in Ohio, as his defense led the conference in both opponent hitting percentage (.172) and blocks per set (2.75), while also tallying the fifth-most digs (16.24/set). Prior to his stint in Athens, Walthall spent three seasons as an assistant at the University of North Florida. As the top assistant for the Ospreys, Walthall helped UNF to the Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament Championships in back-to-back seasons. In 2011, he coached a defense that boasted the league leaders in blocking, digs, and opponent attack percentage. Walthall started his coaching career as a volunteer assistant coach with perennial power Nebraska for two seasons. While a member of the Cornhuskers' staff, he assisted with video scouting, film breakdown and team training during practices while also helping with day-to-day administrative office duties. Walthall was a four-year winner at Penn State under Coach Mark Pavlik. With the Nittany Lions, he was a part of four national semifinal squads, including the 2006 season when the team competed in the National Championship match. During his senior campaign in 2007, he ranked 15th in the nation and led Penn State in averaging 2.33 digs per set. While he served as a defensive and serving specialist during his first two seasons at Penn State, Walthall made the move to libero as a junior and helped the Nittany Lions to a 21-8 record and a national runner-up finish. Walthall earned his bachelor's degree in recreation, parks and tourism management at Penn State in May 2007. Originally from Irvine, Calif., Walthall attended Woodbridge High School where he was a Volleyball Magazine Fab 50 selection and team MVP as a senior. At the club level, he competed for the LBC, helping the team to the 2003 Junior Olympic National Championship.

Despite the outcome, three Nittany Lions fueled the offense with a trio of double kill totals. 2016 EIVA Co-Player of the Year Chris Nugent led the way with 20 kills, adding 12 digs and one assist. Aidan Albrecht followed with 12 kills to go along with two digs and two blocks. Matt Seifert rounded out the group of standout performers with 10 kills and two blocks. PENN STATE CLINCHES 32ND EIVA/ECVL TITLE IN PROGRAM HISTORY The Penn State victory against Sacred Heart marked Penn State’s 32nd EIVA/ ECVL regular season title in program history, marking the 21st time that head coach Mark Pavlik has guided his team to a regular-season title. Since joining the EIVA in 1986, Penn State has surrendered just 13 matches to a conference opponent during the regular season. NITTANY LIONS IN THE AVCA COACHES POLL Having moved around the the coaches poll throughout the season, Penn State closed out the 2016 season at No. 12. THREE EARN FIRST-TEAM ALL-EIVA HONORS Redshirt seniors Matt Seifert and Taylor Hammond along with junior Chris Nugent earned spots on the All-EIVA First-Team after helping Penn State to its 18th consecutive conference title. The three All-EIVA honors brings Penn State’s all-time number of conference selections to 202 since 1972. NUGENT EARNS EIVA ALL-TOURNAMENT HONORS Chris Nugent earned EIVA All-Tournament honors after recording a double-double (20 kills, 12 digs) against the Red Flash of Saint Francis (Pa.) in the EIVA Semifinals in Rec Hall. NUGENT EARNS EIVA OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK HONORS Nugent helped guide Penn State to a 2-0 record with non-conference wins against #14 Ball State and IPFW. In the 3-0 victory against Ball State, Chris recorded 11 kills on a .600 attacking percentage which included one service ace. In the Nittany Lions' three-set win over IPFW, Nugent finished with 17 kills and hit .500 with one service ace. The honor is the first of Nugent's career and the 16th time a Nittany Lion has been selected for the weekly award. NUGENT NAMED AVCA NATIONAL PLAYER OF THE WEEK Junior Chris Nugent has earned AVCA Sports Imports DI-II National Player of the Week honors, as announced by the organization this afternoon. The honor is the first of Nugent's career and the 16th time a Nittany Lion has been selected for the weekly award. The honor comes just a day after he picked up his first EIVA Offensive Player of the Week award this season. Nugent helped guide Penn State to a 2-0 record with non-conference wins against #14 Ball State and IPFW. In the 3-0 victory against Ball State, Chris recorded 11 kills on a .600 attacking percentage which included one service ace.

EIVA DOMINANCE At the conclusion of the regular season the Nittany Lions finished 12-2 on the year in the EIVA. This marked the first seasonun under Mark Pavlik that the Lions have surrendered more than one loss in EIVA play. PSU has been unbeaten in EIVA play during the regular season in 14 of the last 21 years, registering consecutive unblemished EIVA slates in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. Penn State surrendered just nine matches to an opponent in the EIVA in that 21-year span. SEIFERT TABBED EIVA DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK After leading the Penn State men's volleyball (1-1) defense during a 1-1 weekend at home in the PAC-12/Big Ten Challenge, redshirt senior Matt Seifert has earned his first conference weekly award of the season, being selected as the EIVA Defensive Player of the Week Monday afternoon.

Nugent marks the first honorable mention selection for PSU since 2014, when Nick Goodell earned the distinction. The merit improves Penn State's total number of AVCA All-Americans to 82 since 1971. Nugent led the Nittany Lions in kills (396), kills per set (3.84), aces (31) and aces per frame (0.30).

2008 NCAA NATIONAL CHAMPIONS

IRVINE, Calif., May 3, 2008 - Behind a career night from senior setter Luke Murray, the top-ranked Penn State men’s volleyball team captured its second National Championship title in school history with a four-game win over No. 2 Pepperdine (27-30, 33-31, 30-25, 30-23). Junior outside hitter Matt Anderson was named the Most Outstanding Player of the NCAA Championship and joined Murray, junior middle hitter Max Holt and sophomore middle hitter Max Lipsitz along with Pepperdine’s Paul Carroll, J.D. Schleppenbach and Jonathan Winder on the NCAA Championship All-Tournament Team. Anderson became Penn State’s second NCAA Championship Most Outstanding Player, joining Ramon Hernandez, who earned the honor in 1994. In the final match of his career, Murray was nothing short of outstanding. The 6-foot setter recorded his first collegiate triple-double with a season-high 63 assists, a career-high 12 digs and a career-high 11 blocks while leading the Nittany Lions to a team hitting percentage of .407. For the NCAA Championship, Murray directed the Nittany Lions to a combined .409 hitting percentage and for the season, Penn State shattered the previous team hitting percentage record of .384 set by the 1994 National Champions, attacking at a .399 clip for the 2008 campaign. Anderson led the Nittany Lions with 29 kills on .451 hitting against Pepperdine while Lipsitz set a career high with 17 kills on .500 hitting. Holt added in 12 kills on .417 hitting while junior opposite Ryan Sweitzer contributed 10 kills. The unsung hero of the match, freshman libero Dennis Del Valle recorded a match-high and career-high-tying 16 digs and for the NCAA Championship, Del Valle racked up 30 total digs. Penn State is the only school outside of California to have its men’s and women’s programs both capture a national championship. The Nittany Lion women’s squad won the title in 1999 and then outlasted Stanford in five games at Arco Arena in Sacramento on Dec. 15, 2007. The Nittany Lions join Stanford, Long Beach State, UCLA and USC as the only programs to accomplish the feat. PENN STATE VS. PEPPERDINE I MAY 3, 2008 I IRVINE CALIF.

A VISIT TO THE WHITE HOUSE As another perk to winning their respective NCAA National Championships, the 2008 Penn State men’s volleyball team and the 2007 Penn State women’s volleyball team and were invited to the White House to meet with President George W. Bush on Tuesday, June 24, 2008. Both squads enjoyed a tour of the East Wing of the White House before individually meeting with the President. He chatted with each group, asking about the season and their championship, where the student-athletes were from and what they planned to do in the future. The team captains then presented the President with a gift - a jointly-signed Penn State No. 1 volleyball jersey and a red, white and blue volleyball - before taking a group photo. The teams were then escorted to the Blue Room of the White House before being formally announced to the South Lawn, where they descended the stairs to a reserved seating area. The captains of each of the 18 National Championship teams in attendance were then escorted to a stage in front of the group and the President joined them, speaking to the crowd and recognizing each team for their feats.

1994 NCAA NATIONAL CHAMPIONS

FORT WAYNE, Ind. May 7, 2008 - Penn State men’s volleyball accomplished what many thought would be impossible in 1994 when it became the first team from anywhere other than California to win a national title. Teams from the Golden State had claimed the previous 24 NCAA titles. Not only was Penn State the only program in men’s volleyball from the East to win a national title, no women’s team east of the Mississippi River had ever won a national title. After qualifying for nine NCAA Tournaments since 1981, Penn State had proven themselves as the top team in the East but defeating a California team to win the title still seemed like a dream. The dream became a reality on April 3, 1994 when the Nittany Lions outlasted perennial powerhouse and 14-time NCAA champion UCLA 9-15, 15-13, 4-15, 15-12, 15-12 at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Ind. A record-setting crowd of 7,908 witnessed Penn State come back from an 11-4 deficit in the fourth game to outscore the Bruins 11-1 down the stretch to force a fifth game and seize the momentum. Penn State then jumped out to a 8-4 lead in the final frame, saw UCLA rally to tie at 12-12, but didn’t wilt, scoring the final three points. Senior co-captain Byron Schneider posted the match winning kill and the Lions had made history. Ramon Hernandez recorded one of the most clutch performances in NCAA Tournament history in the championship match by recording 38 kills, a .444 hitting percentage and 10 digs. Ed Josefoski and Schneider each chipped in 18 kills, while Josefoski posted a team-high 12 digs. Both were named to the All-Tournament team. Just a freshman, Ivan Contreras added seven blocks and 14 kills while Kevin Hourican led the team with 11 blocks. Setter Carlos Ortiz recorded 87 assists, seven kills and 10 digs. The NCAA title capped off a 25-3 season that also saw the Lions take the EIVA crown. Penn State recorded victories over some of the top programs that season, defeating Stanford twice, Ball State, Brigham Young and Ohio State three times. The Lions had four players finish the season with over 300 kills, led by Hernandez with 440. Hernandez, Contreras, Josefos­ki and Ortiz were named All-Americans. PENN STATE VS.

Bleachers

* Two Photo Zones are on the East and West sides of the gym. During all regular-season games, photographers have the entire side of the opposite court where Penn State is playing. PSU cheerleaders are required to cheer behind the PSU team and they will switch sides when the team does. Actual Photo Zones are not marked on the floor but photographers are asked to remain behind the white line marked on the floor about 10 feet from the endline. Please keep this area clear of bags/equipment as it is a playable area. Servers have the entire baseline for use.
