Movie companies have frequently used the campus as a Movie classic college setting, most recently for a movie titled “School of Rock” starring Jack Black (Shallow Hal). The picturesque campus was also used in a fall 2001 television series, The Education of Max Bixford, starring Richard Dreyfus and as the site of a prospective private military school in the HBO series, The Sopranos.

2013 WAGNER WOMEN’S LACROSSE


Since the adoption of the Wagner Plan in 1997, enrollment has increased by nearly 40 percent and student quality as measured by high school average and SAT scores have improved as well. Once largely a commuter campus, now 82 percent of all undergraduates live on campus in residence halls that offer “million dollar” views. Though continuing to serve students from metropolitan New York, the college draws most of its enrollment from beyond the immediate region. By every measure – enrollment, endowment, and national reputation – Wagner is ascending the ranks of America’s strongest small colleges that blend the liberal arts with a commitment to service and preparation for the professions. Campus life includes the array of sports provided by an NCAA Division I program which is housed in a 93,000-square-foot sports center featuring an extensive fitness center, an indoor NCAA swimming pool and a basketball arena. A football and track & field stadium showcases a variety of playing fields throughout the campus including baseball, softball, lacrosse and soccer venues. Wagner’s alumni include Broadway Tony award winners, movie stars, film producers, playwrights, and Fortune 500 CEO’s including the chairman of GE Investments, the chairman of Dupont Europe, the chairman Emeritus of The Oppenheimer Management Company and the chairman of the New York Power Authority. Visitors to and residents of New York City alike enjoy access to a rich and diverse array of museums, cultural organizations, arts performances, sports teams, societies and attractions. Some of the best and most famous attractions in the world call New York City home. We encourage you to find out more about them, so that you can plan a visit to what is one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the world. To get to Manhattan from Staten Island, you can take a ride on the world-famous Staten Island Ferry, a well-recognized icon of New York City transportation, and incidentally, a free ride into the heart of New York City.

2013 WAGNER WOMEN’S LACROSSE


Walter Hameline Athletic Director/ Head Football Coach In the his 32nd year as Director of Athletics and Head Football Coach at Wagner College, the relentlessly energetic and optimistic Walt Hameline continues to amass an astounding record of achievement and consistency. On Nov. 6, 2010, Hameline became just the eighth active Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) coach to win 200 games with a 31-20 victory over Monmouth and ranks 66th (tied) on the all-time NCAA wins list (any level). In addition, he is one 36 coaches to win 200 games at one school. He will enter the 2013 season with an overall record of 213-127-2 (.626) over his 32-year head coaching career at Wagner. In 2012, hameline enjoyed a banner season, one that featured a 9-4 record, a nine-game winning streak, the school’s first Northeast Conference (NEC) Football Title, a 31-20 NCAA FCS Playoff win over No. 24 Colgate, followed by a gallant effort in a 29-19 defeat at No. 4 Eastern Washington. Following the season, Hameline was bestowed with three “Coach of the Year” honors. In November, he was named 2012 NEC Coach of the Year, and in january was named National Coach of the Year by the College Sporting News and the College Sports Journal. Hameline also had the distinction of being named one of 20 finalists for the prestigious Eddie Robinson National Coach of the year award. following the 2012 campaign, the longtime Colts Neck, NJ native had the honor of inducted into the New Jersey Sports Writers Association Hall of Fame. While his coaching resume is immense, Hameline has been equally effective as an administrator. Under Hameline’s leadership, the Seahawk athletic department has undergone an ambitious expansion in both sport offerings and facility improvements. In the spring of 2002, Wagner introduced women’s water polo to its slate and the Seahawks now feature 20 sport offerings. Known for his keen vision and boundless enthusiasm, Hameline was influential in establishing the Seahawk Golf Classic, now in its 22nd year, and the Seahawk Club, a pair of intitiaves aimed at increasing funds for the scholarship endowment and complete financial support for the athletic department. Most recently under Hameline’s direction, thanks to the generosity of one of his former offensive lineman Marc Lebovitz, Wagner College Stadium was the beneficiary of a striking new state-of-the-art scoreboard in 2010. Lebovitz, a member of the Seahawks’ 1987 Division III National Championship football team and a 1991 Wagner graduate, is now a highly-successful New Jersey businessman. The scoreboard represents a major facility upgrade for the Seahawk football program while other Wagner teams benefitting from the scoreboard include women’s soccer, men’s lacrosse and women’s lacrosse. In 2006, the Wagner College Stadium field was resurfaced with a state-of-the-art Field Turf playing surface. This multipurpose surface was is also used for football, women’s soccer and lacrosse. In 1997 Hameline governed the opening of Wagner’s football stadium and outdoor track & field facility and was instrumental in erecting the Spiro Sports Center in the spring of 1999 - a 93,000 square-foot building which houses a 2,100-seat, multi-purpose arena, a six-lane swimming pool, team locker rooms and all athletic department offices. In 1995, Hameline oversaw the opening of new athletic fields at the base of Grymes Hill to house additional teams. This multi-sport facility is presently home to the Seahawk softball team which, in 2007, underwent a vast reconstruction. Hameline’s overall coaching ledger includes five ECAC Championships, three NCAA Tournament appearances and the 1987 NCAA Division III National Championship — all told, 10 post-season appearances in 29 seasons. Hameline won his 175th career game - all at Wagner with a come-from-behind victory over St. Francis (PA) in the 2005 season finale. He became the winningest coach in Wagner College history in 1990. The highlight, of course, is the 19-3 win over heavilyfavored Dayton in the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl for the 1987 NCAA Division III National Championship. Against one of the toughest schedules in the nation, Hameline’s Seahawks rolled to a 13-1 record, winning more games than any college football team in America. The team earned the school’s second Lambert Trophy, symbolic of football superiority in the East among Division III schools, and ECAC Team of the Year recognition. Hameline was honored by many organizations including the Chevrolet National Coach of the Year. The 60-year old administrator, has been a key developer of the Northeast Conference, serving on numerous committees and served as president of the league. Eight years ago, Hameline was honored for his playing, coaching and administrative achievements when he was inducted into the Utica Sports Hall of Fame. In addition, Hameline was given the AllAmerica Football Foundation Johnny Vaught Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998. An outstanding defensive back at Brockport State, Hameline received his Bachelor of Science degree in physical education in 1975, and went on to earn his Master’s Degree in education from the University of Albany in 1977. Hameline resides in Colts Neck, NJ, with his wife, Debbie, and their daughters Kristen and Kelly.

ABOUT THE NEC... Northeast Conference History: When the Northeast Conference (NEC) was first established as the ECAC-Metro Conference back in 1981, the league’s founders had one goal in mind: to create a competitive NCAA Division I men’s basketball conference for unaffiliated schools on the Eastern seaboard. A single-sport entity at its inception, the NEC has grown far beyond expectations over the past three decades, having transformed itself into a burgeoning 12-member, 23-sport conference. To mark the NEC’s 30th Anniversary season in 2010-11, the Conference will proudly celebrate its heritage as its builds toward a promising future. The NEC and its member institutions are committed to providing opportunities for student-athletes to achieve their fullest potential both in athletic competition and in the classroom. Likewise, the Conference continually strives to be an NCAA Division I leader for athletic success, academic achievement and integrity, sportsmanship, equity and diversity, community partnership and national engagement. The remarkable success story of the conference began to unfold in 1985, when the league began sponsoring additional sports. Three years later, a change of name was in order and the Northeast Conference as we know it today was born. With membership and sport sponsorship continuing to grow over the next 25 years, the NEC now enjoys qualification or play-in access to 14 different NCAA Championships (baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, field hockey, football, men’s and women’s golf, women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis and women’s volleyball). Though the NEC has featured various incarnations since its inception, charter members Fairleigh Dickinson, Long Island, Robert Morris, St. Francis (NY), Saint Francis (PA) and Wagner remain part of the current 12-school alignment. They are joined by Monmouth (admitted in 1985), Mount St. Mary’s (1989), Central Connecticut State (1997), Quinnipiac (1998) and Sacred Heart (1999). NEC expansion continues with the addition of Bryant University in 2012 as the league’s 12th member, which will give the league a six-state geographic footprint with access to such major media markets as New York City, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Hartford and Providence. NEC member institutions now compete in 23 championship sports: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, women’s bowling, men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, football, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, women’s swimming, men’s and women’s tennis, and women’s volleyball. Northeast Conference Website/Television More widely-recognized than ever, the NEC continues to expand its new media initiatives to cater to a growing fan base. The Conference has embraced social media with Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages, all of which have attracted loyal followings. The NEC also provides its fans with NEC On The Run podcast segments, weekly NEC Notebook spots (that also air on Sports Radio 66 WFAN in New York City and ESPN Radio 1250 in Pittsburgh) and video blogs. To further enhance its multimedia efforts, the league launched satellite website, www.northeastconference.tv, last fall. The site serves as the league’s webcast hub and offers an event archive dating back two years. A women’s basketball regular season Game of the Week along with ten conference championships (men’s and women’s soccer, field hockey, volleyball, women’s basketball, women’s bowling, men’s and women’s lacrosse, softball and baseball) made up the 2009-10 webcast package. The Conference also plans a summer relaunch of its official website, www.northeastconference.org. To supplement one of the premier regional basketball television packages in the country, the conference also produces a football package and a preseason basketball show entitled NEC Countdown to Tipoff. Over the last five years, the Conference has televised nearly 150 events, as the league’s coverage area expanded to over 50 million homes. Along with flagship station MSG Network, other regional television partners include MSG Plus, FSN-Pittsburgh, MASN, NESN, Fox College Sports, Cox Cable and the Connecticut Sports Network. In 2010, ESPN broadcast the men’s basketball championship game for the 23rd straight year, while ESPNU carried the women’s championship game, marking the third year in a row the women’s contest reached a nationwide audience.

2013 Wagner Outlook Coming off a seven-win season in 2012, the most victories achieved by the program since 2005, the 2013 Seahawks are will have a decidedly different look given the graduation losses of six top student-athletes. Heading that talented senior class were Second-Team All-NEC attacker Carolyn Clark, the league’s leading goal-scorer in 2012 (52), and midfielder Lauren Petrik who dished out a school-record 28 assists a year ago. The 25-person 2013 Seahawk roster will feature just eight upperclassmen with three being seniors to go with five juniors. Wagner will have six players in the sophomore ranks along with a12-person freshmen class. Melding a roster comprised of 19 underclassmen with the eight upperclassmen will be job one for Curiale along with assistants Ashley Johnson and Amy Martin. During preseason camp, Wagner’s fifth-year head coach Cristina Curiale took one last look back on her six graduated seniors before discussing her 2013 Seahawks. “That’s a difficult group to replace all at once. We’re always going to have different groups of people and I think you just kind of look at the individuals that you do have and you want them to be the best they can possibly be and really play to their strengths in order to fill the roles.” Discuss the leadership qualities of the four captains, Erika Bulken, Katy Bender, Caitlin Daily and Michela Galante. “This is Erika’s second year as a captain as she was captain last year as well, along with some of our seniors. I think all of these girls lead by example out on the field and its kind of a changing of the guard within our program. We’re doing a lot of new things and a lot of different things. Being up-tempo and putting in new concepts that are tailored to the strengths of our team and our big freshman class. Now that we have a lot of talent, it’s really these four girls helping steer the direction of the ship for our team. Katy Bender and Erika are very vocal, especially on the defensive end. They all bring a different attribute as captains. Erika leads by example on the low attack end. Michela’s working in a midfield unit where there’s a lot of new faces all around and Caitlin is a productive, steadying force on our defense. “Our big thing is that when we first came in, when we left last year, we knew that we were going to bring in a big class of freshmen and that it was our captains’ responsibility to get our freshmen acclimated to the Division I level.And I think that they’ve been successful within in that. “

2013 WAGNER WOMEN’S LACROSSE


Is there a position in which freshmen have an impact earlier than others?? “It’s a lot harder for a freshman to come in and play defense, whether its midfield or in the defensive end, because we have to re-teach their whole style of play, so I would say we’ll likely see a quicker impact from the more offensive-minded players, although there’s a learning cure there too.” Attack There’s only three seniors on this year’s roster and they are all attackers. “Yes, three seniors that are attackers. And we have a freshman and a sophomore in the mix with there as as well. We have veterans in the attacking end that have been able to mold the underclassman to fill the roles. Jessica Mills, for example, got a lot of playing time and is one of the girls that we expect to step into the roles that were left from graduation. Erika Bulken was among the top players in the nation at winning draw controls.Talk about her importance to the team. “As with any sport, the longer you have possession. One, the other team’s not scoring and two, it gives you more chances so you have to put numbers on the board when you have the ball. So Erika’s ability to allow us to gain possessions is very important to what we’re trying to do. We have a lot of returners in the defensive end. So, when you’re in a game and you can get a draw control, its kind of like that added extra possession vs. having to create a caused turnover or create a possession from the backfield.” Curiale on the Seahawk midfield: “In the past we’ve kind of worked fewer numbers through the midfield whereas now we have the ability to give them some rest. I think we have a lot more depth because a lot of people came in ready to go, especially the freshmen challenging for positions. Their talent is already at a certain level so we’re kind of building off of that vs. waiting X amount of years and getting a lot of experience. The freshmen have gotten a lot of game experience earlier on because of the numbers and because they kind of rule the roost in the midfielder in that there are only three returners in that spot.” Curiale on the Seahawk defense: “Katy (Bender) is going to be the backbone of our defense and has a lot of responsibilities on her plate. She was able to really make a name for herself last year, so there’s expectations that come with it. She’s one of those players that makes the unit better because she’s invested in helping others understand the concepts. She and Caitlin Daly are very vocal leaders in the defensive end. We have freshmen that are stepping up and two returning sophomores that are defenders, so have some flexibility there.” Curiale on the Seahawk Goalie:s Morgan (Roach) has been slowed a bit by injuries. Last year, Shannon (Sweeney) and Morgan battled it out back and forth between a few games. It was really a competition of who’s really performing and taking control of the defensive unit and the team. This year, bringing another individual into the mix in Katie Ferraro, kind of makes that competition a little bit more true. So, now it’s not that you’re two goalies are fighting one another for one spot. Now, you’re really trying to better yourself and strengthen your weaknesses because you’ve got to beat out two people to earn playing time in the cage.” “Katie Ferraro has definitely stepped into a role. Every single day we can come into the office and ask “who had the better day today?” and it kind of flip-flops back and forth. We want someone to come in and take ownership of that position. Last year, Shannon earned the starting spot and we went on a great run so it will be interesting to see it all play out. Curiale on the strengths of the team: “I think a strength is that we have a lot of kids that want to do well and have a great work ethic. We’ve been trying out a lot of new this. Our sport is always developing, so we kind of have to stay on the forefront of everything. Our fundamentals are so much more sound than they have ever really been. And when you kind of put that enthusiasm, with a group of returners got a taste of victory last year, it’s exciting. We have half of our team coming from successful high school programs so they have that winning mentality, they don’t know anything other than that. It’s kind of like a recipe for growth and success.”

2013 WAGNER WOMEN’S LACROSSE


Carolyn Clark Named NEC Spring Scholar-Athlete of the Year 2012 Team and Five Individuals Recognized By The Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Association L September, the Wagner College women’s lacrosse team, headed by the Last rrecently-graduated quartet of Chanel Briggin, Carolyn Clark Lauren Petrik and Denieda McCullough, was among 46 programs that earned Academic Squad D hhonors for the 2012 season as announced by the Intercollegiate Women’s Laccrosse Association (IWLCA). To earn this recognition, which Wagner has now aaccomplished four straight years, a women’s lacrosse team must earn a team GPA of 3.0 or higher. G In addition to recognizing the nation’s top academic teams, the IWLCA honored 173 student-athletes from 56 different institutions with inclusion on o the 2012 Academic Honor Roll. All student-athletes were nominated by their th schools and have achieved at least junior status academically. Nominees considered had a GPA of at least 3.5 or were in the top 10 percent of their squad. Briggins, Clark, Petrik and McCullough are the four Seahawks who were named to the 2012 IWLCA Academic Honor Roll, each being tabbed to this team for the second consecutive year.

At Wagner’s Senior Awards Dinner held last month, Clark received “The Business Person of the Year” award, sponsored by Bridge Financial, an Office of Met Life, and given annually to the Seahawk student-athlete with the highest GPA in the business field. The Business Administration major, who held a 3.91 grade point average upon graduating, earned a spot on the NEC Commissioner’s Honor Roll (3.75 GPA or higher) all four of her Wagner years.

Cullough (Senior, Business Administration, Accounting) have left an indelible mark on Wagner and its women’s lacrosse program. These four were also members of the Northeast Conference (NEC) Spring Academic Honor Roll all four of their years for achieving a 3.2 GPA or higher. In addition, Clark and Petrik earned spots on the prestigious NEC Commissioner’s Honor Roll all four years, an achievement that requires a 3.75 GPA or high per academic year. Since Cristina Curiale took over as head coach prior to the 2009 season, the Seahawk women’s lacrosse program has enjoyed a remarkable record of academic achievement. In 2009, the Seahawks earned the highest team grade point average among all institutions that compete in women’s lacrosse in the nation, encompassing Divisions I, II and III. That year, the IWLCA honored the Wagner program with the distinction of Division I Merit Status, an honor extended annually to the top three programs with the highest team GPAs. The three Merit Award winners in 2009 were headlined by Wagner( team GPA of 3.53), followed by Stanford (3.523) and Hofstra (3.50).

Following a prolific senior season in 2012, Clark was voted to the All-NEC second team for the second time in her career. She led the league in both goals (52) and goals per game (3.06), and ranked fifth on the circuit in points per game (3.53). The two-time NEC Player of the Week enjoyed a sevengoal game – one shy of the school record – against Monmouth on April 13 and also tallied five-goal During the four years under Curiale’s guidance, the Seahawks have placed a stagoutings on three occasions.
