Senior Reflections Elizabeth Zorovich I chose to attend Hofstra University because it offered me the opportunity to excel academically and athletically. Hofstra gave me the chance to explore my academic passions that have helped me to gain the experience I will need for my future career. My athletic experiences have taught me how to be strong, dedicated and confident. I have gained a great deal of knowledge and strength from my four years of being a student-athlete at Hofstra University but what I will remember most are the lifelong friendships I have made and the supportive efforts from my family and others that have helped me along the way.
Jaclyn Pandolf Playing for the Hofstra Women’s Lacrosse team has created unforgettable memories for me. I have learned what it really means to be a part of a team and how far hard work and dedication can go. I may not remember all of the scores of the games that I’ve played, but I will always remember the teammates that were beside me. I am expecting nothing but great things out of this 2012 season and I am planning to end my lacrosse career with a CAA championship.
Chrissy Jones I chose to attend Hofstra because I felt it was a place where I could enjoy my college experience, and grow and excel as a student-athlete. The challenges and adventures I have endured through both lacrosse and academics have helped shape me into the person I am today. As a senior I am grateful for the unforgettable experiences and all the friends I have made along the way.

2012 Women’s Lacrosse
Head Coach Abby Morgan
bby Morgan, a three-year assistant coach for the Pride, became the eighth women’s lacrosse coach in school history on August 7, 2006. In her first season at the helm, she led her team to a 12-7 overall record, a 6-1 Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) mark, the team’s first CAA championship and its secondever NCAA Tournament appearance. Morgan brings a 47-38 career record into her sixth season at the helm in 2012.
Hofstra is coming off a 2011 season that could be categorized as rebuilding. The Pride posted a 6-10 record and was 2-5 in the CAA. Senior Katie Hertsch and sophomore Jill Maier were All-CAA selections and the team once again excelled in the classroom, earning IWLCA Academic Squad accolades. The 2010 season saw Morgan lead her team to a 12-6 record and advance to the CAA title game. The team was ranked 15th in the final IWLCA Poll, the highest final ranking in program history. In addition, Morgan coached then-senior Corrine Gandolfi to her second All-America honor is as many seasons and also saw rising junior Hertsch earn a spot on the United States Women’s Senior National Team. Statistically, the team led the CAA in goals, assists and points per game and ranked eighth in the nation in draw controls. In the classroom Morgan saw her team earn IWLCA Merit Squad honors and boast the top team GPA in all of Division I women’s Lacrosse. Morgan guided Hofstra to a 10-6 overall record in 2009, and the team was recognized nationally by earning IWLCA Merit Squad honors for
having one of the top three cumulative grade point averages nationally. In addition, Morgan assisted in the development of Corrine Gandolfi, who became just the seventh player in program history to earn AllAmerican honors. In 2008 Hofstra compiled a 7-9 overall record and a 4-3 mark in the CAA. Hofstra finished in a tie for fourth in the conference and beat two squads ranked in the top 20 during the season. In addition, the Pride had four players named to postseason All-CAA teams, including two members of the All-CAA first team. The Pride was ranked 16th in the final IWLCA Poll of the 2007 season, which was, at the time, the team’s highest final ranking in program history. Morgan also saw one of her star players, Kimberly Hillier, named a third team All-American and get selected to play on the United States Developmental Team. The 2007 squad finished the year ranked 22nd in winning percentage (.632) and was 23rd in the nation in scoring defense (10.16 GAPG). Morgan joined the Hofstra staff at the start of the 2003-04 academic year after a two-year stint as the top assistant at Monmouth University in West Long Branch, New Jersey. Since Morgan’s arrival the Pride has totaled 74 wins. In addition, Hofstra made three straight appearances in the
In Morgan’s first year as head coach, she launched her own company called InCrease Lacrosse Camps, Inc. The company provides quality lacrosse instruction and competition for girls of all ages. InCrease Lacrosse offers various clinics and camps throughout the year that introduce the game to newcomers and advance players to the next level. Through her work with InCrease Lacrosse, Morgan is continually developing youth lacrosse on Long Island while promoting Hofstra to the local community. At Monmouth she helped guide the Hawks to Northeast Conference regular season first and second place finishes in 2002 and 2003, respectively. Morgan was responsible for developing the attack at Monmouth, and mentored four All-NEC attackers and five All-NEC midfielders during her tenure. Morgan was also the team’s academic advisor and facilitated fund-raising efforts for the Hawks.
CAA championship game from 2005 to 2007 and was ranked nationally at the conclusion of five of the last seven seasons. Under Morgan’s tutelage, 16 Pride student-athletes have earned CAA postseason honors, and four members of the program have garnered All-America accolades. Morgan has coached four of the greatest players in school history in Hillier, Becky Thorn, Casey McGrath and Corrine Gandolfi. Hillier and Gandolfi (twice) and Thorn were each All-Americans, while the four players earned All-CAA honors 13 times between them. The group combined to score 561 goals and rank two through five on the career goals list, and are in the top six in career points. Hillier’s 73 points in 2006 is tied for the school record, as are her 82 career assists, while Thorn graduated as Hofstra’s alltime leader in draw controls. As an assistant coach, Morgan worked with the Hofstra defense, as well as serving as recruiting coordinator. Under her tutelage in 2005 the Pride ranked ninth in the NCAA in caused turnovers and AllAmerican defender Bridget Eder led the nation in caused turnovers and was 11th in ground balls. Hofstra’s goalkeepers also fared well under Morgan’s direction as Maisie Osteen was sixth in the nation in goals against average, while Lisa Papa ranked 19th in save percentage. In 2004 the Pride ranked 10th in the NCAA in ground balls per game, and Eder led the nation in ground balls and was 11th in caused turnovers and draw controls, while Papa ranked 18th in the nation in goals against average.

She finished her junior year eighth in the nation in assists and garnered the Husky Award for dedication to the Connecticut program. A captain as a junior and senior, she finished her collegiate career as UConn’s single season (28) and career (63) leader in assists, and now ranks second in both categories.

Assistant Coaches/Staff Tanya Kotowicz Assistant Coach
anya Kotowicz, a 2004 graduate of the University of Connecticut, is in her fourth season as an assistant coach with the Pride. Kotowicz joined the Hofstra staff after serving as the head coach at Marist College in 2008. Since her arrival at Hofstra, the Pride have won 28 games and advanced to the Colonial Athletic Association championship game in 2010.
In her only season at the helm of the Red Foxes, she guided her squad to the first Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) title in school history. Kotowicz led Marist to 10 wins as the Red Foxes dropped a NCAA Play-In contest and fell one win shy of qualifying for the NCAA Championship. It was a banner year for the Marist program as nine different members of the squad earned All-MAAC honors, 10 were named to the MAAC All-Tournament squad and a total of 14 garnered MAAC All-Academic accolades. It was her second stint in Poughkeepsie as she previously was an assistant coach for the Red Foxes in 2006. In between stops at Marist, Kotowicz was an assistant coach at St. Maryâ€™s (CA) during the 2007 campaign. During her tenure with the Gaels, St. Maryâ€™s led the nation in ground balls and had eight players named to the Academic All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) team.

Kotowicz, a native of Hicksville, New York, was a Big East Scholar-Athlete from 2002 to 2005 and a Big East Academic All-Star from 2000 to 2005. The 2005 team that she was a member of was ranked 15th in the nation and won the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Championship.
Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach
llison Nuzzi is entering her third season on the Hofstra Women’s Lacrosse coaching staff. Nuzzi came to Hofstra after serving as an assistant women’s lacrosse coach at the University of Richmond for two seasons.
Nuzzi was an assistant coach for the Spiders during the 2008 and 2009 seasons and helped Richmond compile an 11-3 Atlantic-10 Conference record during that time. Nuzzi assisted in all aspects of the program, including game preparation, scouting reports and on-field coaching. She also monitored the academic progress of the student-athletes, and the team compiled one of the highest grade point averages in Richmond lacrosse history. The recruiting coordinator for the Spiders, Nuzzi also helped to manage the budgets and the conditioning and practice plans for the squad. Prior to her stint at Richmond, Nuzzi was an accounting associate with Clifton Gunderson LLP from August 2006 to June 2007. A four-year member and two-year captain of the Richmond women’s lacrosse team from 2002 to 2006, Nuzzi totaled 32 goals and 63 assists during her stellar career. When her playing career concluded, she ranked second alltime in assists and her 26 assists in 2006 and 25 in 2004 rank as the second and third-highest single season total in school history.
ames Prendergast is in his third season as an assistant strength and conditioning coach at Hofstra University.

2012 Women’s Lacrosse
oming off a 6-10 season in 2011, Hofstra Women’s Lacrosse Coach Abby Morgan is looking for a turnaround in 2012. With 19 players returning from that squad, including seven of the top eight scorers as well as a goalkeeper that led the CAA in saves and save percentage, the Pride possess both the experience and talent to rebound from an off year.
Attack Junior Claire Brady and sophomore Claire Brady Lindsay McKinnon return to anchor the attack. Brady started 10 of 14 games last season and ranked third on the team in scoring with 15 goals and a team-high 17 assists. Brady has been a consistent distributor of the ball in her first two seasons (15 assists as a freshman) and has upped her goal scoring in each of her first two seasons (six goals in 2010 to 15 in 2011). McKinnon was a pleasant surprise as a freshman, scoring 12 goals and adding five assists. She was fourth on the team in goals scored and had arguable the biggest goal of the season for the Pride when she scored the game-winner versus #17 Notre Dame with eight seconds left in the second half. Both Brady and McKinnon will need to continue their offensive production in 2012. Sophomore Jenn Ward, who played in all 16 games last season, will also play an important role on the Pride attack after tallying 15 goals and four assists in 2011.Ward was a Colonial Athletic Association All-Rookie selection last season and her versatility may allow her to slide into a midfielder role as well. Juniors Taylor Albright, Lauren Chandler and Jacquelyn Ardolino, and sophomore Julia Riemer will also fill valuable roles at attack. Albright made seven starts and played in 13 games as a sophomore and contributed three goals and an assist, while Chandler had
one goal and one assist in 11 contests. Ardolino will provide an offensive jolt as evidenced by her 12 goals and an assist in 2011 before a seasonending knee injury. Sophomore Callahan Foley and freshman Kaitlin Ayres will provide added depth at the position. Foley made one appearance for the Pride last season, while Ayres comes to Hofstra from Bethlehem Central High School in upstate New York where she was the team’s Offensive Most Valuable Player a year ago.
Midfield Hofstra’s midfield may be the deepest and most talented unit on the team led by All-CAA selection Jill Maier. The junior led Hofstra in scoring in 2011 with 37 goals and three assists for 40 points. She was also a catalyst for the Pride offense as she led the team with 43 draw controls. In her first year as Hofstra’s primary offensive threat, Maier showed she was up to the task as she upped her scoring by 15 goals from her freshman season.
Classmate Casey Kellogg started 10 of her 16 games last season and plays a key role as a defensiveminded midfielder. She did contribute on the offensive end with three goals and an assist and showed as a freshman (nine goals) that she is a capable scorer as well. Senior Maryann Miller and sophomore Alex Mezzanotte also return to midfield roles. Miller, who had missed the entire 2010 season, worked her way back into form in 2011 and finished the year with eight goals and five assists. Mezzanotte had an impressive rookie campaign as she recorded six goals and 10 assists for 16 points. The 10 assists tied her for second on the team. She also added 15 ground balls,
which is second among returning players. Both Miller and Mezzanotte are expected to have even bigger roles this season. Junior Emily von Hollen and sophomore Liz Anders are two other returnees who will be relied on in 2012. Von Hollen scored one goal in six games, while Anders was a consistent presence in the Pride rotation as a freshman with six starts in her 16 games played. Anders provided two goals on the year and also added eight draw controls. Freshmen April Iannetta, Brittain Altomare and Sam Lenox were each impressive during fall practice and are in line for playing time as well. Iannetta was an All-Nassau County selection at Wantagh High School on Long Island, while Altomare scored 247 goals and added 95 assists during her four-year scholastic career at Middletown High School in Maryland. Lenox was an All-American during her senior campaign at Queen Anne’s County High School in Maryland.
Defense The Pride defense is a mixture of experience and youth, and following the graduation of seniors Katie Hertsch and Bettina Mianulli; Coach Morgan will look for someone to claim a leadership role on the unit. The leading contender to take on that role is senior Elizabeth Zorovich, who started 11 of 16 games last season and has played in 34 games during her Pride career. In 2011 Zorovich picked up 13 ground balls and had six draw controls and two caused turnovers. Sophomore Jamie D’Arco also returns and will move into a more prominent role following her stellar play in the fall. As a freshman, D’Arco played in 11 games with one start and had three ground balls. Sophomore transfer Jac Tierney is also in line for playing time after an impressive showing during the fall. Tierney, who played scholastically at Massapequa High School on Long Island, recorded two goals, five assists, 33 ground balls and 19 caused turnovers at Lenoir-Rhyne University last season. Freshman Abby Wilson’s play also caught the eye of the coaching staff in the fall and the former scholastic star at The John Carroll School in Maryland should see significant playing time in 2012. Seniors Chrissy Jones and Genna Kovar will also be looking for playing time. Jones played in 14 games as a junior and contributed 10 ground balls. Elizabeth Kovar is in her Zorovich first season of playing lacrosse after a stellar career on the Pride field hockey team. A gifted natural athlete, Kovar is quickly learning the game and could be an added weapon for Coach Morgan this season.
2012 Women’s Lacrosse
Sophomore Samantha Greiber, who played in four games last season, is recovering from offseason surgery and could potentially return during the season. Another returnee who will miss the year is junior Emily Corzel, who played in all 16 games and started 14 last season.
Goalkeeper Senior Jaclyn Pandolf played every minute of every game last season and posted a 10.17 goals against average, 159 saves and a .491 save percentage. Her 159 saves and .491 percentage led the CAA, while her 10.17 goals against average was fifth in the league. Pandolf is capable of keeping the Pride in any contest as she posted 10 or more saves in 10 of the Pride’s 16 games last season. Freshman Kelsey Gregerson will serve as Pandolf’s understudy and impressed the coaching staff in the fall that she will push for time. Gregerson was an All-Nassau County pick as a senior at South Side High School on Long Island and was one of the top 50 players on Long Island as selected by MSG Varsity.
Schedule Hofstra’s non-conference slate is littered with plenty of quality opponents as the nine teams combined for 100 victories and a winning percentage of 62%. In addition, of the nine non-conference opponents, eight had winning records, led by Maryland’s 21-2 mark in 2011. The Pride open the season with a threegame road trip, starting with the contest at Colgate. Following that game Hofstra will close the month of February with games at Fairfield (February 22) and Boston College (February 25). The Stags and the Eagles each had successful seasons a year ago as they won 13 and 12 games, respectively.
There will be plenty of excitement surrounding Hofstra’s home opener in 2012 as the Maryland Terrapins visit James M. Shuart Stadium on March 4. Maryland was the national runner-up a season ago after winning the national title in 2010. The Pride also have a trip to California in March, playing a neutral site game against Denver in Berkeley on March 23 before meeting up the Cal two days later. Hofstra’s CAA slate will be challenging as always. This season the Pride play at defending champion James Madison, Towson, George Mason and Drexel, while hosting Delaware, George Mason and William & Mary.

This is Hofstra University
ofstra University provides a dynamic college experience tailored for engaged and ambitious individuals. Students find pride and purpose at Hofstra, through small classes, a faculty whose primary concern is teaching, cutting edge technology, extensive library resources, internships, and active and compelling educational programs that appeal to their interests and abilities. The Hofstra community is driven, dynamic and energetic, helping students find and focus their strengths to prepare them for a successful future. In its relatively short 76-year history, Hofstra has established itself as a world-class institution of higher education and cultural enterprise. Each academic year, the Hofstra campus and the programs offered grow and change to meet the demands of our students and our community. Hofstra opened in 1935 as a commuter school with all classes and offices housed in one building. Since those early days, Hofstra has evolved into an international institution with a student body hailing from 50 states and territories, and 72 countries around the world. The beautiful campus is an accredited arboretum with 115 buildings on 240 acres. There are approximately 4,000 students living on campus, and Hofstra offers them and all students an extensive array of academic and social activities. Additionally, Hofstra’s close proximity to Manhattan means that students have easy access to the wondrous cultural, social and career offerings of the city. While the campus and its offerings have changed, what has remained consistent throughout the years is the sense of community on campus, the eagerness of our students to learn and the commitment of the Hofstra faculty and administration to provide a challenging education that encourages the pursuit of lifelong learning. The Colleges and Schools of the University are: Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Frank G. Zarb School of Business, School of Communication, School of Education, Health and Human Services, Maurice A. Deane School of Law, School for University Studies, Honors College, Hofstra University Continuing Education and Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine at Hofstra University. Bachelor’s degrees are offered in about 150 areas of study. Graduate degrees are offered, including Ph.D., Ed.D., Psy.D., Au.D., J.D., and M.D. degrees, advanced certificates and professional diplomas, in more approximately 160 programs of study.
Hofstra joined with North Shore-LIJ Health System in announcing plans to establish a medical school on the University campus in October 2007. The new school, which welcomed its first class in July 2011, is the first allopathic (MD) medical school in Nassau County and the first in New York State since 1963. In October 2011 the Commission on Presidential Debates announced that it had chosen Hofstra University for the site of its October 16, 2012 Presidential Debate, which will be in the “town meeting” format. The Commission on Presidential Debates, a nonprofit, nonpartisan corporation, has sponsored and produced every presidential and vicepresidential debate since 1988. Hofstra University hosted the third and final presidential debate of the 2008 election cycle, between then Senator Barack Obama and Senator John McCain, on October 15, 2008. In 2011 Hofstra announced that it would launch a School of Engineering and Applied Science with a co-op education program that will partner with a network of industry leaders to offer students substantial work experience before they graduate. The new school, set to open in September 2012, will combine and expand the University’s existing Engineering and Computer Science departments to develop a curriculum that emphasizes high-tech research, practical work experience and inter-disciplinary study, integrating resources and faculty from other parts of the institution, including the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine and the Frank G. Zarb School of Business. Hofstra’s School of Communication is one of the largest, most advanced non-commercial television facilities in the East. Students take classes and work in Dempster Hall, a sophisticated television production/post-production facility with two broadcast-quality studios and control rooms; two advanced online video edit suites; two Avid non-linear digital editing systems and several cuts-only video work stations. Two satellite dishes are available with one dish providing special news feeds for the broadcast journalism room, which also has access to Associated Press, Lexis-Nexis and Dow Jones services. In addition, the facility is capable of broadcasting
student-produced programming to the entire campus on our own cable channels. Also located here is the University’s radio station (WRHU/88.7-FM), audio production studios, a film/video screening room, film editing rooms, a computer laboratory, a speech performance studio and a large dance studio. Hofstra’s C.V. Starr Hall offers academic facilities that are among the most technologically advanced in the nation. Every seat in every classroom allows students direct access to the Internet and Hofstra network, including the resources of Hofstra’s Axinn Library. Hofstra’s growing computer facilities offer extensive high-tech training opportunities. There are computer terminals throughout the campus for student and faculty use, with more than 750 PC, Macintosh and UNIX workstations available in labs and classrooms. Hofstra hosts more than 500 cultural events annually, bringing thousands of scholars, dignitaries and other participants to campus. More than 200 musical and dramatic performances take place on campus each year. The University recently completed a year-long celebration of its 75th anniversary, complete with a concert, academic convocation and cake, several conferences and signature events which brought together students, faculty, alumni and community. In October 2008 the eyes of the world were on Hofstra for the final presidential debate between Barack Obama and John McCain. The debate was a transformational moment for the University, highlighting the achievements of our students and faculty and their engagement in the political process. Leading up to the debate, students and the entire community were engaged by the year-long Educate ’08 program, almost 150 lectures, conferences, and events focused on the issues, history and politics of the presidency, followed by Define ’09, which looked at the first year of his presidency. The University continues to host important political events, such as the New York State Gubernatorial Debate in 2010. The Hofstra Museum, which houses one of the largest art collections in the metropolitan area, coordinates approximately eight exhibitions annually and offers exhibition areas and an extensive outdoor sculpture collection, with 75 pieces. The Hofstra Museum is accredited by the American Association of Museums – one of only 94 universities in the nation and one of six in New York to hold that distinction. Hofstra also has six theaters, a student newspaper, a lively student center, a recently renovated recreation center and numerous athletic facilities, including the 13,000-seat James M. Shuart Stadium and the 5,046-seat David S. Mack Sports and Exhibition Complex.

JACK HAYES Hofstra University Director of Athletics

Hayes came to Hofstra after serving as an associate director of athletics at the University of Connecticut for three years. Hayes, the eighth director of athletics at Hofstra, leads a department that includes 17 Division I teams, 90 coaches and administrative staff members and 350 student-athletes. Hayes’ proven expertise in enhancing academic and athletic success of student-athletes, strategic planning, fund-raising, marketing, university relations, facility enhancement, budgetary management, and NCAA compliance complements Hofstra University’s athletic department in its quest to further enhance its athletic program, and assist Hofstra’s studentathletes both on and off the field.
Hayes has placed a significant emphasis on fund-raising during his tenure. Pride Club membership reached all-time highs, both in terms of the number of contributors and funds raised as the organization topped the $1 million mark for the three consecutive years. In addition, Hofstra Athletics signed its largest corporate sponsorship deal in department history when it partnered with W.B. Mason in 2010. In 2011 Hofstra announced a 1.5 million dollar commitment from lacrosse alumnus James C. Metzger ’83, the largest gift in Hofstra Athletics history. Resources generated through fundraising efforts have been used to enhance programs and facilities available to student-athletes. Recent initiatives include the construction of the W.B. Mason Pride Lounge on the lower level of the Mack Sports Complex, baseball’s Quinn Family Grandstand and the Fried Family StudentAthlete Development Center on the second floor of the James M. Shuart Stadium Building. Other recent renovations include locker rooms, the wrestling room, athletic training rooms in Margiotta Hall and the Physical Education Center, the basketball media room in the Mack Sports Complex, a press box at the Hofstra Soccer Stadium, replacement of the turf at James M. Shuart Stadium and the construction of the Hofstra Field Hockey Stadium. In 2006 Hayes reintroduced the Hofstra Athletics Hall of Fame after more than a 50year absence, inducting five classes since that time. He also led an effort to retire the uniform numbers of prominent Hofstra student-athletes with 20 jersey retirement ceremonies held during the 2008-09 academic year.
Active on a national level, Hayes served on the NCAA Division I Lacrosse Committee from September 2006 to September 2008. In September 2010 he was appointed to the NCAA Leadership Council, which is an advisory body to the Division I Board of Directors. Hayes came to Hofstra with more than 14 years of athletic administration experience, including management positions at four Division I institutions – Connecticut, Fordham, St. John’s and Fairfield. Hayes received a master’s degree in education in 1992 with a concentration in sport management from the University of Connecticut. He holds a bachelor’s degree (1989) from Providence College, where he was a member of Providence’s lacrosse team. He was also awarded a certificate of completion in 2001 from the Sports Management Institute, Consortium of the Universities of Michigan and Texas. A native of Providence, Rhode Island, Hayes graduated from the Providence Country Day School where he lettered in football, basketball and lacrosse. He was inducted, as a member of his high school basketball team, into the Providence Country Day Athletic Hall of Fame in October 2004. In October 2010 Hayes became a two-time member of Providence Country Day’s Athletic Hall of Fame when he was inducted along with the rest of his high school lacrosse team.

pened in 1992, Margiotta Hall, a magnificent three-story, 22,500-square-foot building, is a centerpiece of the Hofstra University Athletics program. The state-of-the-art field house, combined with Hofstra’s 13,000-seat stadium, has created one of the finest lacrosse facilities in the nation. The facility was named after Joseph M. Margiotta ’50, a former Pride student-athlete and long-time supporter. Margiotta, who founded and served as President of the Hofstra Pride Club for more than 20 years, passed away in November 2008 Margiotta Hall features a 3,500-square-foot weight room on the first floor. The building also contains locker rooms for men’s lacrosse and women’s lacrosse, all of which have undergone major renovations since 2008.
The state-of-the-art athletic training room, also located on the first floor, has hydrotherapy and electrotherapy areas, cardiovascular and isokinetic equipment, as well as taping areas, a rehabilitation area, an aerobics room, and athletic trainer and physician offices. On the second floor, an attractive multipurpose room, enclosed by a glass wall, provides a panoramic view of James M. Shuart Stadium. Meetings and receptions for alumni, parents and friends of the Hofstra Athletic program are held in this area. Located on this level are the offices for the men and women’s lacrosse coaching staffs. The lacrosse office was the benefit of a major renovation project in 2008. The offices are equipped with video equipment, a 12-seat
theater with stadium seating for group film and meeting sessions, as well as a viewing room with hardwood flooring and a 50-inch flat screen television that overlooks the field. In 2010 Margiotta Hall was the recipient of a “Traditions Project” that provides a sense of history of the lacrosse programs. The walls of the second floor of Margiotta Hall contain pictures and brief text descriptions of the key moments and people in Hofstra Lacrosse history. The project was made possible through the generosity of former lacrosse AllAmerican James C. Metzger ’83. The lower level of Margiotta Hall contains a 178-seat theater, additional meeting rooms and an indoor golf training facility.

James M. Shuart Stadium/Indoor Practice Facility
riginally opened in 1963 as Hofstra Stadium and renamed James M. Shuart Stadium in August 2002, the facility serves as the home to Hofstra’s lacrosse teams.
Named after the former Hofstra President, who played football and lacrosse during his undergraduate days at Hofstra, James M. Shuart Stadium has served as the host for the NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse Championship Quarterfinals and first round games in the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse Championships, numerous conference championship contests, the Long Island All-Star Football Game, the Fun City Bowl featuring the New York City Police and Fire Department teams, the Long Island Lizards of Major League Lacrosse, and various Long Island high school and New York state championship games. The stadium also served as a home for the Long Island Rough Riders of professional soccer’s A-League. In 1968 the stadium became the third college facility in the nation to install an artificial playing surface. James M. Shuart Stadium underwent a major renovation and expansion that was completed in the fall of 1996, making the facility into one of the premier complexes in the Northeast. The project included the expansion of the seating capacity from 7,000 to 13,000; the creation of the Howdy Myers Pavilion in the southeast corner of the stadium; and the installation of scoreboards in both end zones. The renovation transformed James M. Shuart Stadium into the largest outdoor sports and entertainment complex on Long Island. In 2007 the artificial turf at James M. Shuart Stadium was replaced with FieldTurf, then in 2009 new scoreboards were installed in the north and south end zones. The largest crowds in James M. Shuart Stadium history occurred during the hosting of the NCAA Lacrosse Quarterfinals. A stadium record 13,447 people, the largest-ever lacrosse crowd on Long Island, were in attendance for the 2011 NCAA Quarterfinals, while a crowd of 12,292, a then-NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship Quarterfinal record, witnessed the 1999 NCAA Quarterfinals featuring Hofstra versus Johns Hopkins. In 2009 11,292 fans were present and 10,510 fans attended the 2001 quarterfinals that featured Hofstra against Syracuse.
Hofstra Indoor Practice Facility The Pride has use of the Hofstra Indoor Practice Facility, that formerly was the property of the New York Jets of the National Football League. The 50-yard turf field gives Hofstra a unique environment that many teams in the Northeast do not have. The practice bubble is located on the North Campus, behind the Mack Sports Complex.
Sports Medicine/Athletic Training
hrough a comprehensive athletic training program, Hofstra University student-athletes are provided excellent health care during their time at the University. A coordinated effort between the University Health and Wellness Center, the Athletic Department and outside health care providers ensures every studentathlete the best medical attention possible. University student-athletes have direct access to a myriad of health care services. Managing the coverage of every practice and competition event is Hofstra University’s athletic training staff, which is led by ninth-year Head Athletic Trainer Evan Malings and features six full-time athletic trainers and numerous student athletic trainers. The athletic trainers provide injury management, rehabilitation and treatment to the entire Athletic program. Utilizing three state-of-theart athletic training rooms, these professionals work tirelessly to ensure the safe participation of Hofstra’s student-athletes and to return injured athletes to play quickly and safely. Supporting the athletic trainers is team physician Dr. Michael Yorio. Dr. Yorio, a physician with Pro Health Care, Inc. in Lake Success, New York, is in his third year on Hofstra’s medical team. Yorio is an internist with specialized training in sports medicine. He earned his undergraduate degree at Villanova University, and received his medical degree from the SUNY Health Science Center in Syracuse.

Athletic Academic Support
ofstra University is committed to the pursuit of academic and athletic excellence. The University views participation in intercollegiate athletics as benefiting the student-athlete in an educationally enhancing experience beyond any other opportunity available. Hofstra also realizes the time commitment made by student-athletes and has committed the facilities and resources to support all students.
The University Tutorial Program (UTP) provides free tutoring in every subject area to any Hofstra student. Students are able to obtain up to 1 1/2 hours of individual tutorial assistance per week for up to three courses. They are also able to utilize the various help labs on campus, which specialize in providing assistance in writing, business and QM, and biology and chemistry. In addition to this service, student-athletes are assigned an academic advisor, through the Center for University Advisement, who helps address the various needs of student‑athletes. The academic advisor emphasizes four areas in their efforts to ensure the academic success of Hofstra’s student-athletes. Area one is academic counseling. Services are provided in the areas of academic planning, career planning, personal counseling, and campus and community referrals. The advisor also meets with prospective student‑athletes, at the coach’s request, to share the many benefits of a Hofstra University education. Area two is academic advising. The academic advisor serves as the primary advisor for first-year and undecided student-athletes, and also assists upperclassmen who have declared a major. Area three is academic monitoring. The advisor monitors the academic progress of student‑athletes to ensure compliance with Hofstra University, NCAA and conference regulations. The advisor’s regular communication with the faculty and coaches provide opportunities for early intervention should academic difficulties arise. Area four is study halls. The University Tutorial Program supports athletic study halls by providing tutors in various subjects as necessary. The academic advisors also assess the needs of individual student‑athletes to provide the most effective study environment. The assessment tool administered by the Center for University Advisement is also used to provide various enrichment seminars for the student‑athletes such as time management, writing skills, campus resources, and surviving the college transition. In 2010 The Fried Center for Student-Athlete Development was opened on the second level of the James M. Shuart Stadium Building. The center houses the offices of the Student-Athlete Services Staff, as well as a large computer lab with printer access for use by Hofstra student-athletes, a quiet study area with wireless internet access and two group study/tutor rooms with power point access and white boards.

The Colonial Athletic Association
he Colonial Athletic Association continues to build on its reputation as one of the nation’s top collegiate conferences both athletically and academically.
The CAA encompasses five of the nation’s nine largest metropolitan areas with a geographic footprint that stretches from Boston to Atlanta. The conference has produced 16 national team champions in five different sports, 33 individual national champions, 12 national players of the year, 12 national coaches of the year and 12 Honda Award winners. Just as impressive, however, are the honors accumulated away from competition, which include five Rhodes Scholars and 22 NCAA post-graduate scholars. In 2010-11, more than 1,900 of the league’s 4,000 student-athletes received the Commissioner’s Academic Award after posting at least a 3.2 grade point average while lettering in a varsity sport. The conference had 21 teams in 12 different sports receive NCAA Public Recognition Awards based on the latest Academic Progress Report released in 2011. The landscape of the conference stretches along the majority of the East Coast, and includes six of the nation’s top 25 media markets – New York (1), Philadelphia (4), Boston (7), Atlanta (8), Washington, D.C. (9) and Baltimore (25). The number of television homes in the CAA market exceeds 20 million. The CAA conducts championships in 23 sports. Male athletes compete for championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and wrestling. Female athletes battle for conference titles in basketball, cross country, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and volleyball. In 2010-11, 25 teams earned NCAA Tournament berths and 50 studentathletes received All-America honors in 13 different sports. The conference has made its presence known nationally in men’s basketball with two teams – George Mason (2006) and VCU (2011) – advancing to the NCAA Final Four over the past five years. Three CAA teams earned NCAA Tournament berths for the first time in 2011 as conference champion Old Dominion was joined by VCU and George Mason. VCU knocked off USC, Georgetown, Purdue, Florida State and top-seeded Kansas, while Mason defeated Villanova. The Rams were ranked No. 6 in the final ESPN/USA Today Top 25 poll, which was the highest ranking ever for a CAA team. In 2006, George Mason captured the nation’s imagination by becoming the first mid-major program since 1979 to reach the Final Four, posting victories over Michigan State, North Carolina, Wichita State and Connecticut along the way. Six CAA women’s basketball teams advanced to postseason play in 2011. James Madison represented the conference in the NCAA Tournament after capturing its second straight conference championship. Delaware, Drexel, UNC Wilmington, Old Dominion and VCU participated in the WNIT, with the Seahawks advancing to the second round. ODU, which won an NCAA-record 17 straight CAA titles from 1992-2008, boasts three national championships (1979, 1980, 1985) and was national runner-up in 1997.
2012 Women’s Lacrosse
The conference also excels in many other sports. CAA squads have combined to win 10 field hockey national titles since the championship began in 1981. At least two women’s soccer teams have advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament in three of the past four seasons and William & Mary gave the CAA a team in the final 16 of the NCAA Men’s Soccer Championship for the sixth time in the last nine years. In men’s cross country, William & Mary advanced to the NCAA Championship for the 12th straight year and finished 19th overall. In the pool, Towson’s Meredith Budner finished as the runner-up in the 500 freestyle and 1650 freestyle at the 2011 NCAA Championship and received All-America honors along with George Mason’s Ashley Danner. Delaware and Towson have each reached the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship in the past decade. The CAA has sent multiple teams to the NCAA Baseball Championship in nine of the last 14 years and has had at least 12 players selected in the eight of the last nine Major League Baseball drafts. The conference also boasts numerous All-Americans in lacrosse, tennis, golf, track and field, women’s lacrosse and wrestling. CAA member institutions are committed to excellence in the classroom. The Colonial Academic Alliance was created in 2002 by the league’s presidents with a goal of expanding their partnership to all aspects of university life outside of intercollegiate athletics. Among the programs that have been established are an undergraduate research conference, coordination of study abroad programs and granting visiting academic status to student-athletes traveling to an away contest so that they have access to libraries, academic resource centers and computer labs. In 2002, two faculty members from CAA institutions were awarded academia’s most coveted distinction – the Nobel Prize. John B. Fenn, a research professor in the Department of Chemistry at Virginia Commonwealth University, received the Nobel Prize for chemistry, and Vernon Smith, a professor of economics and law at George Mason University, shared the Nobel Prize in economic sciences. Commissioner Thomas E. Yeager has guided the CAA since its inception. The conference traces its roots back to 1983 when three of its current members- George Mason University, James Madison University, and the College of William and Mary - were aligned with East Carolina University, the United States Naval Academy and the University of Richmond as a basketball league (ECAC South). During the next two years, the league added 11 sports, acquired two new members (the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and American University) and decided to form a new association. The transformation from ECAC South to CAA took place on June 6, 1985. Charter members George Mason, James Madison, UNC Wilmington and William and Mary were joined by Old Dominion University in 1991 and by Virginia Commonwealth University in 1995. The conference added the University of Delaware, Drexel University, Hofstra University and Towson University in 2001. Georgia State University and Northeastern University became members of the conference on July 1, 2005.
Hofstra in the Community
he Hofstra Womenâ€™s Lacrosse program is active in many community service endeavors. In 2011 the Pride took part in more than 15 projects as a team or in conjunction with Hofstraâ€™s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. Projects included reading and
physical fitness programs at local elementary schools, charity walk-athons, cooking and serving meals at a local Ronald McDonald House and Holiday gift donations to needy children.

Colleluori started the foundation before succumbing to non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2006. The third annual Nick Colleluori Women’s Lacrosse Classic was held on September 24 at Hofstra University and the event was a success for the second straight year as it raised nearly $34,000 to help bring awareness for the HEADstrong Foundation and blood cancer research. There were 13 teams in this year’s event as Hofstra, Adelphi, Central Connecticut State, Connecticut, C.W. Post, Iona, Johns Hopkins, La Salle, Long Island, Monmouth, Vermont, New York Athletic Club and Team HEADstrong (Hofstra lacrosse alumnae) competed in the all-day tournament. In its three years of existence, the Nick Colleluori Women’s Lacrosse Classic has raised more than $100,000. The inaugural event in 2009 saw $32,000 in contributions, while the 2010 tournament raised $42,000. “We are very honored to host the Nick Colleluori Women’s Lacrosse Classic,” commented Head Women’s Lacrosse Coach Abby Morgan. “Nick meant a lot to so many people and we hope that the funds we raise during the event will assist in the fight against this dreaded disease.”
