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.

Walter Hameline Athletic Director/ Head Football Coach Walt Hameline, who completed one of the most magical and memorable of his 32 years as Wagner Athletic Director/Head Football Coach in 2012, continues to amass an astounding record of achievement and consistency in college athletics while approaching each day with relentless energy, passion and enthusiasm. In 2012, Hameline led the Seahawks to their first-ever Northeast Conference (NEC) Football Championship with a thrilling 23-17 come-from-behind victory over Duquesne on November 17, 2012, while clinching a berth in the 2012 Division I FCS Championship. The win personified the Green & White’s exhilarating season. Wagner began the season with three straight losses, before winning its next nine games. The eighth victory of the winning streak came in the NEC title win over Duquesne, with the ninth straight coming the following week over Colgate in the first round of the NCAAs. The Seahawks then took their 9-3 record to Eastern Washington where they stood-to-shoulder with No. 4 Eastern Washington in the NCAA second round game, seizing a third quarter lead before falling 24-14. In defying the odds throughout its triumphant march to the school’s first-ever Northeast Conference (NEC) title and the conference’s first-ever NCAA FCS win, Wagner compiled a 9-4 record, including a 7-1 mark in the NEC. The Seahawks finished the season ranked 21st in The Sports Network Final Top-25 Poll and 22nd in the Final FCS Coaches Poll, an achievement that marked the first time an NEC team has ended the season with an appearance in both official Top-25 polls. The accolades for soon began to pour in for Hameline. After being named the 2012 NEC Football Coach of the year, he was tabbed the 2012 Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) National Coach of the Year by both College Football News (CFN) and the College Sports Journal (CSJ). Hameline was also named as one of the 20 nominees for the Eddie Robinson Award, which since 1987 has been awarded annually to college football’s top head coach in the Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). Shortly after receiving the news of his twin National Coach of the Year honors, Hameline, who owns a 216-135-2 (.622) record in his 32-year career, was inducted into the New Jersey Sports Writers Association Hall of Fame Not to be lost amid the host of accomplishments by the 2012 team, is the fact that Hameline helped lead the school to a 30-0 victory at nationally-ranked Albany in the week following Hurricane Sandy. After returning from the state capital, Hameline joined many of his team members aiding in the recovery efforts in some of Staten Island’s hardest-hit areas. In the 2012 home opener against Monmouth, Wagner College Stadium was renamed Hameline Field in his honor. Additionally, Hameline had his first former player crack the NFL ranks when Julian Stanford made the Jacksonville Jaguars’ 53-man roster to become the first Seahawk in the NFL since Wagner Hall of Famer Rich Kotite suited up for the New York Giants in 1972. Two years ago, on November 6, 2010, Hameline became just the eighth active FCS coach to win 200 games with a 31-20 victory over Monmouth, is 54th on the all-time NCAA wins list (any level) and one of just 36 coaches to win 200 games at one school. Hameline has also had tremendous success in his role as Athletic Director of the Seahawks’ now 20-sport program. In April of 2012, Hameline, who has enjoyed a long and proud association with metropolitan area basketball and the National Invitation Tournament (NIT), was the recipient of the 2012 Distinguished Service Award from the Metropolitan Basketball Writers Association (MBWA). Distinguished Service Awards are presented by the MBWA to individuals that have made significant contributions to college basketball. For more than two decades, he was one of five metro area athletic directors, along with his peers at NYU, Fordham, Manhattan and St. John’s, who helped comprise the Metropolitan Intercollegiate Basketball Association (MIBA). Along with NIT Executive Director Jack Powers, Hameline helped select teams for both preseason and postseason NIT’s, while directing other functions such as the NIT All-Star Summer Tour. Under Hameline’s leadership, the Wagner Athletic Department has undergone an ambitious expansion in both sport offerings and facility improvements. Hameline was influential in establishing the Seahawk Golf Classic, and the Seahawk Club, a pair of initiatives aimed at increasing funds for the scholarship endowment and complete financial support for the athletic department. Most recently, under his tutelage and thanks to the generosity of one of his former offensive lineman, Marc Lebovitz, Hameline Field was the beneficiary of a striking state-of-the-art video 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 Green & White football program, while also benefiting the women’s soccer, men’s lacrosse, women’s lacrosse and men’s & women’s track and field programs that also call Hameline Field home. Prior to the momentous 2012 season, Hameline’s overall coaching ledger included five ECAC Titles and three NCAA Tournament Appearances, highlighted by 1987 NCAA Division III National Championship. In the magical Championship Season of 1987, Wagner posted a 19-3 win over heavily-favored Dayton in the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl to earn the 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. Following the season, in addition to Sports Illustrated writing a feature story, a host of national and regional organizations recognized Hameline, highlighted by his being named the Chevrolet National Coach of the Year. In 1990, just three years winning the school’s only National Championship, Hameline became the winningest coach in school history. The 61-year old administrator has been a key developer of the NEC, serving on numerous committees, and is a past president of the league. Nine 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 All-America 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, Debi, and they are the proud parents of daughters Kristen and Kelly. While Hameline has achieved success and honors throughout his career, listed below is a timeline impressive honors he has attained the past year alone.

Northeast Conference History: It is with great pride and anticipation that the Northeast Conference (NEC) entered its 33rd year as an NCAA Division I athletic conference in 2013-2014. Ten strong and committed to strengthening the Conference from within, the NEC comes off the most successful year in league history in terms of athletic and academic success. Poised for a new era of growth, innovation and achievement under the leadership of Noreen Morris, the Conference will continue to build around the theme of #NECPride. 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 student-athlete achievement, academic excellence, integrity, sportsmanship, equity and diversity, community partnership and national engagement. 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 plus decades, having transformed itself into a 10-member, 22-sport conference. In recent years, the NEC has taken aim at elevating the brand awareness of the league, elevating the caliber of its championship events and enhancing the opportunities and experiences for student-athletes that compete in the Conference. The NEC has raised its commitment to basketball through a host of strategic initiatives, most notably via a Brand and Basketball Enhancement fund, revised scheduling parameters and the implementation of state-of-the-art LED signage at all arenas. The NEC has also provided each institution with a basketball marketing grant that resulted in the highest attendance on the men’s side in 15 years and the highest per-game average in women’s basketball history last season. 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 years, the NEC now enjoys qualification or play-in access to 14 different NCAA Championships (baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, football, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis and women’s volleyball). NEC Footprint - 2013-14 Though the NEC has featured various incarnations since its inception, charter members Fairleigh Dickinson, LIU Brooklyn, Robert Morris, St. Francis Brooklyn, Saint Francis U and Wagner remain part of the current 10-school alignment. They are joined by Mount St. Mary’s (admitted in 1989), Central Connecticut (1997), Sacred Heart (1999) and Bryant (2012). The NEC’s six-state geographic footprint includes access to such major media markets as New York City, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Hartford and Providence. NEC member institutions now compete in 22 championship sports: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, women’s bowling, men’s and women’s cross country, 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.

LIZ FRISOLI Head Coach FIRST SEASON Liz Frisoli, former head coach at Huntingdon College and a top player at the College of the Holy Cross, was named head women’s lacrosse coach in July 2013. In 2011, Frisoli was entrusted with establishing a Division III program at Huntingdon in preparation for the Hawks’ first season of competition in 2013. With lacrosse not a sanctioned sport for Alabama High School Athletic Association teams or Alabama Independent School Association teams, Frisoli spent the 2011-2012 academic year scouring the nation for talent, eventually landing 19 student-athletes from 13 different states. During preseason training camp, and throughout the course of the 2013 season, Frisoli meshed, molded and motivated her inexperienced squad into a winning one, guiding the Hawks to an 8-6 record in their inaugural season. “We are extremely excited to welcome Liz Frisoli as our new Head Women’s Lacrosse coach,” said Hameline. “Liz is a tireless recruiter who’s tremendously energetic, enthusiastic and passionate about the game of lacrosse and player development. I am confident this formula will allow her to build a winning tradition for our women’s lacrosse program look and we look forward to Liz’s contributions to the Seahawk community.” “I’m thrilled to be the next head coach for Wagner College women’s lacrosse,” said Frisoli.“During my visit, I fell in love with the campus and really gained a sense and feel for the Wagner College community. I think the program has a solid foundation and, with the girls’ strong work ethic, I think we can really make some noise in the NEC (Northeast Conference).” “I’d like to thank the athletic administration at Wagner College for placing their faith and confidence in me to lead the Seahawk program,” she added. Frisoli, who spent the 2011 season as an assistant coach at Curry College (MA), was a standout player in high school, college as well as on the international level. At Winchester High School in her native Winchester, MA, Frisoli was team MVP and captain as a senior on the Sachems’ lacrosse and field hockey teams. Her talent caught the attention of recruiters from a host of colleges. Electing to continue her studies and athletic career at Holy Cross, Frisoli developed into a top defender. In 2004, Frisoli studied abroad, spending a year playing in England on the University of York’s women’s and co-ed teams, where she earned MVP honors while serving as captain. As a senior Holy Cross in 2005, she was named First-Team All-Patriot League and was the Patriot League’s runner-up for Defender of the Year. Frisoli went on to play for the 2005 South Australian lacrosse champion Glenelg Seahawks of Adelaide, Australia, playing alongside three 2005 FIL World Cup champions. Her lacrosse background also includes stints as director/coach of La Jolla (CA) Youth Lacrosse and as a marketing/sales associate for Adrenaline Lacrosse in San Diego. Frisoli also spent several years as a sports reporter and anchor for CBS television stations in Providence, Rhode Island, and Yuma, Arizona. Frisoli earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Holy Cross in 2005 and also holds a Master of Education degree from the University of Massachusetts-Boston (2010).

SECOND SEASON HOLY CROSS (2011)

FIRST SEASON RICHMOND (2013)

Amy Martin is entering her second year on the Seahawk staff and her initial season in the role of first assistant, having been elevated to this position in August, 2013. Martin will again be charged with developing the Seahawk goalies. In 2012, Martin arrived on Grymes Hill armed with a wealth of knowledge about the Northeast Conference (NEC), having served a one-year stint as a media relations assistant in the league’s Somerset, NJ office. While with the NEC, Martin spearheaded the media relations efforts for women’s lacrosse, cross country, women’s soccer, volleyball, swimming, softball, and golf. Martin also spent a year coaching for the Metro Magic Club Lacrosse team in New York. “I am thrilled to promote Amy Martin to first assistant coach. Amy worked tirelessly for this new title: she was on the road recruiting and in the office working before she knew I was hired as head coach,” said Wagner College head coach Liz Frisoli. “Amy will be vital in creating a smooth coaching transition with the girls. She has had a year to work with them and I have already been using her as an invaluable resource!” From 2008 to 2011, Martin enjoyed a highly successful fouryear playing career as a goalie at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. While at Holy Cross, which is also Frisoli’s alma mater (2005), Martin was named First-Team All-Patriot League and to the All-Patriot League Tournament team in her junior year. In addition, Martin was Patriot League Goalie of the Year that season while receiving Patriot League Goalie of the Week honors eight times during the career, and was a two-time defender of the week. In her senior season, Martin served as captain of the Crusaders. “Amy’s dedication to this team speaks for itself,” Frisoli added, and I am thrilled to build on our Holy Cross Lacrosse friendship and create a successful working relationship!” In addition to her playing career at Holy Cross, Martin worked in the college’s sports information department for two years. While an undergraduate, Martin also gained experience in the field of journalism, writing bi-weekly columns for Inside Lacrosse Magazine while also covering high school sports for the Petoskey News Review in her native Michigan. A native of Harbor Springs, MI, Martin will pursue a Masters Degree in Education in addition to her coaching duties.

Former University of Richmond standout Caitlin Fifield joined the Seahawk coaching staff in August, 2013. A Babylon, NY resident, Fifield recently completed As a fifthyear senior midfielder in 2013, she was named to the prestigious Tewaaraton Watch List (Tewaarton Trophy is given annually to the most outstanding American college player), and earned Atlantic 10 First-Team All-Conference honors while leading the Spiders with 72 points and 24 assists, to go with 48 goals which was second on the team. An honor roll student who earned a degree in sociology in May, Fifield also had the distinction of being named to the 2013 Atlantic 10 All-Academic Team. In addition to her outstanding playing career, Fifield brings a solid coaching foundation with her to the Wagner program as she has served as a club coach and college camp counselor since 2008. Over the last five years, Fifield has served as head coach of the Long Island Elite Yellow Jackets’ Club Team where she gained further experience administering practices, coordinating the offense and organizing activities. She has also served as a Youth Lacrosse Camp Counselor at Max Lax Lacrosse, Just 4 Girls Lacrosse, Long Island Elite Lacrosse, and the Blue Chip Recruiting Camp in addition to being a camp counselor at several Division 1 summer camps throughout the nation. “Caitlin Fifield is the perfect fit to our coaching staff. Her energy, enthusiasm and intensity are contagious and her success on the field speaks for itself,” said Wagner College head coach Liz Frisoli “Caitlin shares my coaching philosophy and I know we will work very well together. Her fresh, exciting ideas about our attack go very well with my passion for defense and Amy Martin’s skilled training with our keepers.” Fifield was also a First-Team All-Atlantic 10 choice in 2012, a SecondTeam All-Atlantic 10 selection in 2011 and was a member of the 2009 All-Atlantic 10 Rookie Team, the same year that she was named to the 2009 Canadian Women’s Lacrosse active roster. She also finished fourth all-time in goals (174), seventh in assists (55), third in total points (229), ninth in single season points (72), and 10th in single season assists (24). In the summer of 2012, Fifield earned a spot on the Canadian National Team’s Top 34 Roster. As senior at North Babylon High School, Fifield was named a 2008 US Lacrosse All American.

Liz Frisoli - In Her Own Words On the eve of the 2014 season, the first-year head coach of the Seahawks sat down with Wagner Athletics to discuss her team, coaching staff as well as the upcoming campaign. Liz Frisoli On .... ....The Importance of the Fall Season: ““We have a very young team with 16 underclassmen. At the very first team meeting, I u eexplained my coaching philosophy and why I believe I got the job. It is my ability to win, and inspire, and push them to their best. My approach to fall ball p might be a little different than other coaches. I look m at it as a smaller version of our regular season, I a ttake it very seriously and I think the girls appreciate tthis. We keep statistics, monitor our record and analyze and target areas for improvement. We went a 5-4-1 in the fall which I thought was pretty good 5 and we beat a team that was ranked 33rd in the a ccountry in 2013 - which is 56 places higher than Wagner last W l t year.” ...Using video from the 2013 season to help assess her personnel heading into year one. “I purposely did not look at any video of last season just so I could make my own opinions and see how these girls would play for me. I didn’t want any preconceived notions. But they all rose to the occasion and I was very impressd. We had three weeks to practice before our first contest in the fall and just seeing their improvement from the first practice to that final practice before our first tournament was extremely impressive. They significantly improved in all areas, including work ethic and intensity at practice. I’m very clear with my expectations and they met them, absolutely, and in a lot of cases exceeded them.” ...Competition in practice as it relates to playing time: “One thing I tell the girls every day is that there are 12 starting positions up for grabs. So that makes it interesting. I don’t like to lock myself into who I think should start or play a lot. Obviously, I have an idea and I’ve tried people at different positions to see who was scoring, who wasn’t, who was making big plays on defense and who wasn’t. One of the exciting things about this team is that they don’t know who I’m going to start and that’s exciting for me and exciting for the girls. Someone who didn’t have a lot, if any, playing time at all last year, could absolutely earn a starting position this year through work ethic alone.” ...The positional responsibilities of the Seahawk coaching staff, which includes second-year assistant Amy Martin and Caitlin Fifield, who came on board in August. “I’m the defense coach. Amy, who was a top goalie at Holy Cross, is doing a fantastic job leading our goalies, while Caitlin is a phenomenal former attacker at Richmond and now a tremendous attack coach. I’m fortunate in my role as the defense coach in that we have some older players who have played together. They’ve been extremely consistent and I think that’s due to their experience and also the fact that they have played in a similar style as I coach defense. I thought the goalies performed well into the

2014 WAGNER WOMEN’S LACROSSE


fall under Amy’s watch and that has continued into the preseason. An area where we are really showing significant improvement is our midfield transition and our attack. Caitlin is 100 percent revamping the attack. This season, I don’t think you’ll see anything that appears similar to last year’s attack.” ...Whether veterans may see time at different positions than they played last year: “With the changing strategy that we are employing, there’s absolutely going to be some changes in personnel. In the end, I just care about heart and hustle, and the desire to score goals, and for girls who show me that the most in this short preseason will earn those four starting attack positions.” ...The Non-Conference and NEC foes that comprise the 2014 schedule. “Our non-conference absolutely has some challenging games, which as a team is very important. We’re playing a few ranked teams that will be a challenge but they are games that we can win if we play to our potential. UMBC and Jacksonville, which has one of the highest scoring offenses in the country, will be great mental toughness tests. We will spend spring break in Florida, facing Stetson and Jacksonville. This is the first time that any of our players will get on a plane to play a Wagner lacrosse game, which is exciting. In the NEC, obviously there’s a big hole with Quinnipiac and Monmouth leaving, so there’s going to be a lot of competition for that No. 1 spot. I think the best way to come into a season is as an underdog, which is what I’m sure we will be considered. With us being a new team, with a new coach and a new way of doing certain things. I think it’s going to be really interesting to see how things play out. I view every season the same way - I think this year is our year.” ...The 2014 captains, Katy Bender, Caitlin Daly and Michela Galante “I rely heavily on both Caitlin Daly and Katy Bender on defense to dictate and control the field. They are both outstanding leaders and great girls, who are very involved in all aspects of the team. I’m very lucky to have stepped into a position of head coach, and also as the defense coach, to work with such excellent, experienced student-athletes as Caitlin and Katy. They really help to foster such a positive environment. As for Michela, she’s also a great leader and someone who has the respect of everyone on the team. She’s also such an outstanding hustler and a feisty player. This year, we are switching Michaela from midfield to attack and she is progressing through this transition very well. I’m looking forward to see some good things from her this spring. Our three captains have the pulse of what’s going on and the girls are all on board and looking forward to the season.” ...The reception that the Seahawk coaching staff has felt on the recruiting trail. “Things are going very well for us recruiting-wise. I’m very excited about where we are and with the quality and quantity of student-athletes that will be arriving at Wagner to play women’s lacrosse. We bumped up our recruiting calendar and have really attacked this very hard as a staff. As a result, we are just about done with our 2014 class, we have six incoming freshmen signed, which is exciting. We’re already well on our way in terms of working with the 2015 class, then we will go on to our 2016’s. Hopefully by the end of the summer, we’ll be all the way done with the sophomores. As a result, we’re hoping to compete with other top schools.”
