hese past years at Hofstra University have been unforgettable for me. The relationships I have made with my teammates I will bring with me for the rest of my life. I have been so fortunate to be able to play the sport I love with my best friends and for a program that I believe in. I am going to miss being a part of this team and playing at such a competitive level. As I look to take on the next part of my life, I will never forget my time at Hofstra. I will always think of myself as part of the Pride.
ver the past five years, I have been able to take on many different roles as a member of the Hofstra Women’s Lacrosse Team. I have learned how to be part of a team and also been able to develop as a leader. I am grateful for the opportunities I have been granted at Hofstra. Playing for an incredible lacrosse program and being a student in the Zarb Business School has pushed me both athletically and scholastically. I would like to thank my teammates, coaches, parents and family for continuously believing in me throughout my career at Hofstra. Go Pride!

hen we’re seniors...” I know we’ve all lost count of how many times we’ve started out a sentence with that, not knowing how quickly the day would come. Now at least once a day we start off our sentences with “remember when we were freshmen...” These were the fastest four years of our lives and I can’t think of a greater group of girls to have spent it with. Through heartbreaking losses, indescribable wins and unforgettable times together I know I speak for all of us when I say having to graduate and leave this program will be one of the hardest things we will ever have to do. This is our year and the 13 of us refuse to leave without rings.
have made so many unforgettable memories with my teammates here at Hofstra. One huge thing I will miss is having such a large number of friends I can do anything with. On our team it never mattered if you were a senior or freshman. Some of the best friends I made were class years below me. I will also miss the chemistry between the team when we play great in a game. The way we played together against Towson during our 2013 season was unbelievable. Or when we beat JMU in the semifinals! But some of my most fond memories were made off the field in the weight room, in our locker room, on the bus and in our houses. Playing lacrosse at Hofstra has taught me important life lessons and given me friends that I will never forget.

he past four years on this team have given me so much that I will be able to use for the rest of my life. Hofstra has taught me to appreciate everything and learn to see the good in any situation. Being put in a situation with twenty-some best friends is the best thing that can be given to an 18-year old entering college. Each year my team has pushed me to grow into a better person. My favorite memories were the times that we accomplished what seemed to be impossible at first. Playing Hofstra lacrosse has made a group of girls that will always be in my life.

hen I was asked to reflect back I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed with memories I’ve made with my teammates. The relationships I have built with my teammates have meant the world to me and I’m very thankful that I had the opportunity to get to know them all. My team has become a part of my family over the past four years and looking back leaves me with a bittersweet feeling because I’m going to miss being a part of a team – from the wins to the punishment runs and every crazy moment in between. But I also know that we are all going to do great things in the future and I am so excited to see what everyone accomplishes. The past has held great things and because of my experiences here, so does the future.
L I N D S AY M C K I N N O N
ooking back on my four years at Hofstra, I am leaving a different and better person. I’ve gained so many incredible lifelong friendships and learned so many valuable lessons. My favorite lacrosse memory at Hofstra was scoring the winning goal against a ranked Notre Dame team freshman year at home on an 8-meter shot with seven seconds remaining on the clock. That is one goal I will never forget. A few things I will miss most after I graduate: team meals on the road and hotel living, locker room dance rituals, living in Casa Blanca with eight crazy, loving girls and a Hofstra swipe card at Starbucks! And don’t forget Campus Pizza and groupme chats! A few of my favorite memories as a student at Hofstra are working the 2012 Presidential Debate as well as the opportunity to intern at Peoples Revolution Fashion Agency, the New York Islanders and the Burson Marsteller Super Bowl internship program. I’m so grateful for all the people who have supported me along the ride. A special shout out to my parents and sisters on supporting me and my senior class. Couldn’t have done it without you! Wishing all my underclassmen the best of luck and always remember «quotes of the day» always make a day better. “Smile at the simple stuff cause this road ain’t long enough” #QOTD

“I get by with a little help from my friends.” - John Lennon
y four years at Hofstra University have been amazing – unforgettable. The opportunity to play a Division I sport here has truly been a privilege. I have grown immensely over the last four years with incredible teammates by my side every step of the way. Every year has brought a new challenge for us to face and work through as a team – and we’ve overcome these challenges, together. The values that our coaches have instilled in us over the past four years – the qualities and characteristics that they’ve developed and nurtured – have become an integral part of who I am as a person. Discipline, perseverance, integrity and teamwork mixed with a lot of laughter and fun – that’s what it’s all about – both on and off the field. I think the concept of coming together as a team will be my most lasting memory of my years at Hofstra. For four consecutive years, 30 women have come together to work towards a common goal. In doing so, we have learned to support each other through thick and thin – no matter what – both on and off the field. Every year it’s a new group of women – new bonds are established and old ones strengthened. This culture – the sense of family we have - isn’t something you find at every school, on every lacrosse team. It takes a special group of women to establish this kind of a culture – to grow and nurture it - and then to pass it on. It’s been awesome to be a part of this team – this family – for the last four years. I’ve learned so much and grown as a player and a person. I feel both privileged to have been a part of it and responsible to pass it on and pay it forward.

ooking back on my past three years at Hofstra University, I know I made the right decision when I decided to transfer here. It was a place that challenged me both academically and athletically. Right from the start, my teammates welcomed me into the lacrosse program and quickly became my best friends. I learned that we will all be there for each other even after we moved on from college lacrosse. Hofstra University provided a great learning environment, helping me gain experience for my future career. Being part of the Pride community has taught me that hard work, dedication and teamwork are all positive qualities that will make me successful in the future.
fter spending five years at Hofstra University as a member of the Women’s Lacrosse Team, I can whole-heartedly say that the experiences I have had, the struggles I have overcome, the friends and memories I have made and the wisdom, courage, strength and confidence I have garnered are all aspects that I would never trade for the world. With the help, guidance and support from my family, friends, teammates, athletic trainers and coaches, along with all of Hofstra’s academic advisement staff, my professors and the Hofstra Athletic Administration, I was able to develop into the young woman I am today. I can assertively say that I stand taller at a height of four-foot eleven today than I did five years ago as a freshman of the same height. No, I have not gained any inches physically, in fact I may have probably lost some after the many surgeries that I have undergone. But in the grand scheme of things emotionally, mentally, and collectively I have grown, not in inches, but in yards. With every yard I have ran, every weight I have lifted, and every practice and semester I have successfully completed, I know that I am undoubtedly prepared for whatever obstacles and challenges life throws my way. Even though this chapter of my life is coming to a close, I will never forget where I came from and the people that helped me to the places I am headed. In my own terms I live by the belief that “You can take the lion from the pack but you cannot take the pride from the lion” and I owe all my regards to all those at Hofstra that instilled that fearless mindset within me.
E M I LY V O N H O L L E N
uring my freshman year, after experiencing a season-ending ACL injury, I thought my world had fallen apart. Now looking back, I could not be more thankful for what this fifth year has given me. I have been lucky enough to experience not four, but five fall balls, and yes, five speed camps, and five amazing spring lacrosse seasons. Blessed with one more opportunity to be a part of the team that I love and play the sport that I love; to watch my family and teammates cheer and support me; to further my education; and most importantly, it has given me one more opportunity to continue these lifelong memories with my closest friends. I would not trade these last five years at Hofstra for anything and I am thankful everyday for all that this program has given me.

Lacrosse Camp to raise $6,500 towards the reconstruction of the school after a fire. At Hofstra, she has continued the women’s lacrosse programs involvement with the HEADstrong Foundation as well as the Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation. A native of West Babylon, New York, Smith attended West Babylon High School where she was a six-time letter-winner and was a member of the varsity squad starting in seventh grade. Smith was one of the top scholastic lacrosse players to ever come out of Long Island as she had 729 points on 505 goals and 224 assists during her career. Both the points and goals totals are New York state records as is her 129 goals in 2006. Smith received her bachelor of science in liberal arts, with a major in economics and minor in business institutions program, from Northwestern.
WHAT THEY ARE SAYING ABOUT SHANNON SMITH… “Shannon is not just one of the most accomplished women’s lacrosse players in recent memory, she also has a track-record of world-class performance both academically and in the community. Hofstra has selected an exceptional leader for their program, a great example of the culture of success that Kelly Amonte Hiller has built at Northwestern.”
Shannon’s skills as a player were extraordinary. Her knowledge of the game, passion for the sport, leadership and hard work were equally as impressive. Shannon was able to communicate and share her understanding of the game with her teammates every day, both on and off the field. I am confident that as the head coach at Hofstra, Shannon will pass along to the team her knowledge and passion for the game and will instill the same qualities that she exemplified to allow her players to achieve great success as student-athletes.” Alex Frank, assistant women’s lacrosse coach at Boston College and 2012 graduate of Northwestern
Dr. James Phillips, Northwestern University’s Director of Athletics & Recreation “I give Hofstra a lot of credit for seeing in Shannon what we have witnessed for four years at Northwestern. In addition to leaving Northwestern as one of the most accomplished athletes in our program’s history, Shannon excelled in the classroom; and will be a tremendous leader for Hofstra Lacrosse, as she was for Northwestern.” Kelly Amonte Hiller, head women’s lacrosse coach at Northwestern and seven-time national champion. “Shannon has been a tremendous player, competitor and leader at the collegiate level for the past four years. Her pedigree as a player speaks for itself, but Shannon’s understanding of the game and her competitive nature will no doubt translate to coaching at this level. Her ability to relate to her players and recruit, especially on Long Island, will revitalize all of the players as well as the program as a whole. I look forward to watching her develop Hofstra’s program in the coming years.” Ricky Fried, head women’s lacrosse coach at Georgetown University and U.S. Women’s National Team head coach “We are very excited that Shannon Smith will be the next head women’s lacrosse coach at Hofstra University. Her success on the field will without a doubt lead into a very long and successful coaching career. At Northwestern she was the coach on the field, and we are all excited to support her as she begins to patrol the sidelines at James M. Shuart Stadium. Shannon has been successful at everything she has done thus far, and we are now looking forward to seeing the “Shannon Smith Era” begin at Hofstra.” Seth Tierney, Hofstra Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach

2014 OU TLOOK
ollowing a season in which the Hofstra Women’s Lacrosse team advanced to the title game of the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Championship, the program will look to take the next step and capture the conference title and earn a berth in the NCAA Tournament. All the pieces are in place for Hofstra to achieve its goals as a plethora of talent returns for second-year Head Coach Shannon Smith and the program has been infused with the addition of six talented newcomers. Smith guided the Pride to an 11-win season during her first season at the helm of the program and with 10 starters and 23 letterwinners returning for Hofstra, the sky’s the limit for the team.
POSI TION-BY-POSI TION B R E AK D O W N
ATTACK One of the Pride’s top players will anchor the attack position this season as junior Brittain Altomare (Wolfsville, MD) returns for her third season in a Hofstra uniform after leading the team with 69 points on 34 goals and a program-record 35 assists. Brittain Altomare picked up a slew of awards a season ago as she was an Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) All-Mid-Atlantic Region second team selection, in addition to earning first team AllCAA accolades as well. Brittain Altomare left her mark in several other areas as well as she contributed 34 draw controls, 23 ground balls and nine caused turnovers. Brittain Altomare will not be asked to do it alone, though, as several other players will look to bolster the Pride offensive output. Sophomore Emily Considine (Rockville Centre, NY), a CAA AllRookie pick last BRITTAIN ALTOMARE year, was fifth on the team with 18 points on 15 goals and three assists despite playing in only 12 games due to injury. Several other players will look to establish themselves this season as Coach Smith hopes to create multiple options for the Pride. Also breaking into the lineup at the attack position will be junior Sam Lenox (Sudlersville, MD), freshman
Tiana Parrella (Miller Place, NY), senior Julia Riemer (Monkton, MD), senior Lindsay McKinnon (Fairport, NY), freshman Morgan Knox (Whiteford, MD), freshman Erin Jeffery (Diablo, CA), freshman Taylor Altomare (Wolfsville, MD), junior Kaitlin Ayres (Glenmont, NY) and senior Jacquelyn Ardolino (Shirley, NY). Among the returnees from that group, Riemer had a breakout season in 2013 as she ranked second on the team with 29 points on 25 goals and four assists. Lenox and McKinnon chipped in with three points a season ago, while Ayres played in four games and Ardolino appeared in three contests.
MIDFIELD The midfield position for the Pride will have a considerable amount of experience as a trio of seniors will see time for Hofstra at this spot. Seniors Emily von Hollen (Severna Park, MD), Alexandra Mezzanotte (Forest Hill, MD) and Jenn Ward (Fallston, MD) will be joined at midfield by the reigning CAA Rookie of the year in sophomore Becky Conto (West Hempstead, NY). Also looking to crack the lineup for Hofstra in the midfield will be freshman Erika Neumen (Rockford, MI) and seniors Liz Anders (Reistertown, MD) and Callahan Foley (Huntingdon Valley, PA). Von Hollen had 12 points (11 goals) and 13 ground balls last season, while Mezzanotte added 16 points (14 goals and two assists), 25 ground balls and seven caused turnovers and Ward added three goals. The conference’s rookie of the year and a CAA All-Rookie pick, Conto ranked third on the team with 21 points on 16 goals and five assists. She led Hofstra with 55 draw controls as well, while also adding 12 ground balls and seven caused turnovers. Anders played in nine games last year and scored three points, while Foley appeared in three games. Coach Smith will look for this group to help Hofstra on both ends of the field as the Pride looks to play strong defense this season and make the most of their offensive possessions.

2014 OU TLOOK BECKY CONTO
(Brookeville, MD) will be major contributors on defense as well. Corzel played in only seven games last year but hopes to be fully healthy in her final season in a Pride uniform. Wilson added 13 ground balls and six caused turnovers in 2013, while Milne picked up CAA All-Rookie accolades following a season in which she had 30 ground balls and a team-best 23 caused turnovers. D’Arco chipped in with a solid season on the defensive side as she had 21 caused turnovers, 20 ground balls and 11 draw controls. Sophomore Lindsey Alfano (Hauppauge, NY), senior Jac Tierney (Massapequa, NY) and senior Samantha Greiber (Annapolis, MD) will look to crack the lineup as well for Hofstra. Alfano played in every game last year and had 19 ground balls, eight caused turnovers and six draw controls for the Pride. Tierney appeared in three games and Greiber made one appearance a season ago.
DEFENSE Arguably Hofstra’s deepest position on the roster, the Pride has a multitude of different options to showcase in a defense that could be one of the top units in the nation this season. Anchoring the defense for Hofstra will be junior April Iannetta (Wantagh, NY). A preseason third team All-American selection by Inside Lacrosse, Iannetta’s value to the Pride can be seen almost everywhere on the field as she had 50 ground balls (second on team) and a team-leading 40 caused turnovers, while also being a major option offensively with 12 goals and six assists. Iannetta was the CAA Co-Defensive Player of the Year in 2013 and also earned IWLCA AllMid-Atlantic Region and All-CAA first team honors. Senior Emily Corzel (Berwyn, PA), junior Abby Wilson (Bel Air, MD), sophomore Shelby Milne (Camillus, NY) and senior Jamie D’Arco
Junior Kelsey Gregerson (Rockville Centre, NY) had an outstanding sophomore campaign and will look to continue her development into her third season in a Hofstra uniform. Gregerson started all 19 games last year and had a goals against average of 8.41, while making 121 saves and compiling a .426 saves percentage. She played 1163:23 out of a possible 1171:27 minutes last year. Joining Gregerson and providing depth at the goalie position will be freshman Alexis Greene (Glen Head, NY).
SCHEDULE The 17-game schedule will feature seven home games at James M. Shuart Stadium, including the first home game of the season against a Maryland squad that was the runner-up in the NCAA Tournament a season ago. Hofstra will play three games against teams that qualified for the NCAA Tournament in 2013, as in addition to Maryland the Pride will also take on Towson and Dartmouth. The difficult slate in 2014 will feature eight teams that won at least 10 games last year. The CAA Championship will be held on May 2 and 4 at the regular season champion. The first and second rounds of the NCAA Championship are scheduled for May 9 and 11 and the quarterfinals will be played on either May 17 or 18. The semifinals and championship game are May 23 and 25 at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson, MD.

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 78-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 all 50 states and 66 countries around the world. The beautiful campus is an accredited arboretum with 115 buildings on 240 acres. There are approximately 3,800 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, Honors College, Frank G. Zarb School of Business, Lawrence Herbert School of Communication, School of Education, School of Engineering and Applied Science, School of Health Sciences and Human Services, Maurice A. Deane School of Law, Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine at Hofstra University, School for University Studies and Hofstra University Continuing Education. Hofstra offers six undergraduate degrees in 140 different areas of study. Eleven graduate degrees are also offered with approximately 150 programs of study to choose from. The University offers three first professional degrees and 14 dual degrees as well. Hofstra joined with North Shore-LIJ Health System in establishing 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. On October 16, 2012, Hofstra hosted its second Presidential Debate, held in the “town hall” format, between President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. Hofstra also 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. 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 first 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 the Obama presidency.
The University continues to host important political events, such as the New York State Gubernatorial Debate in 2010 and a visit from Newark, NJ, Mayor Cory Booker to kick of the Debate 2012 - Pride, Politics & Policy program. Hofstra opened its School of Engineering and Applied Science in September 2012. The new school features a co-op education program that will partner with a network of industry leaders to offer students substantial work experience before they graduate. The School of Engineering and Applied Science 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 Lawrence Herbert School of Communication is one of the largest, most advanced non-commercial television facilities in the East. Students take classes and work in 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.

JEFFREY A. HAT HAWAY
VICE PRESIDENT AND DIRECTOR OF ATHLE TICS at the school from 1990 to 2001. In his two years away from the Storrs campus, Hathaway enjoyed a successful tenure as the director of athletics at Colorado State University from 2001 to 2003. During Hathaway’s career, he has always made the academic success of student-athletes a top priority. In the classroom, more than 50% of UConn’s 650 student-athletes achieved a 3.0 “B-or better” semester grade point average during the spring and/or fall semesters of the 2010 calendar year, including 16 who earned a perfect 4.0 grade point average. In addition, the Division of Athletics consistently maintained a 99 percent academic retention rate among its student-athletes.
effrey A. Hathaway is in his second year as the Vice President and Director of Athletics at Hofstra University in 2013-14.
Hathaway, formerly the Director of Athletics at the University of Connecticut and the chairman of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee, was introduced by Hofstra University President Stuart Rabinowitz on May 15, 2012. “In collegiate athletics, the name Jeff Hathaway means success on any number of levels: in the classroom, on the playing field, in the boardroom, with donors and the media. Most importantly, Jeff’s focus on excellence, ethics, leadership and academics will allow the Hofstra Pride athletics program to move to the next level of excellence,” said Rabinowitz. “His tenure at the University of Connecticut was one of unprecedented growth, and under his leadership, we look forward to ushering in a new era of Hofstra Pride athletic success.” “I am excited to join the Hofstra University community and to have the opportunity to provide leadership and serve the studentathletes, coaches and staff in this outstanding athletics program,” commented Hathaway at his introductory press conference. “I particularly would like to thank President Stuart Rabinowitz for allowing me to become part of the Hofstra University family. Throughout my career I have been part of programs that have competed against Hofstra and I have seen firsthand the success the Pride has had over the years. My primary focus will be on the academic achievement of our student-athletes and providing them the opportunity to participate and achieve in
their academic and athletic endeavors as we prepare them for their lives after graduation from Hofstra.” In his first year at Hofstra, Hathaway oversaw a department that produced four Colonial Athletic Association championship and NCAA Tournament teams, as well as two other teams that reached the conference championship game. In addition, Hofstra Athletics saw three student-athletes earn Academic All-America accolades and five garner CAA ScholarAthlete of the Year honors. On of those Academic All-Americans, Joe Burg, also was a finalist for a Rhodes Scholarship in 2012, becoming just the second Hofstra student to ever earn the distinction. The Pride not only flourished on the fields and in the classroom, but also in the area of athletic development. The Hofstra Pride Club enjoyed a banner year with $1.1 million in cash funds raised, a 13% increase over 201112, and a 16% increase in annual funds. In 2013 Hathaway was named to the NCAA Division I Leadership Council, continuing his long tradition of service on a national level. Hathaway guided the University of Connecticut (UConn) Division of Athletics through an unprecedented period of academic and athletic achievement during his eight years as director of athletics from 2003 to 2011. At the same time, he became an influential leader for college athletics on both the national and conference level. Hathaway played a vital role in UConn’s success story for nearly 20 years as he was the executive associate director of athletics
The University of Connecticut was saluted for its community service efforts by the National Consortium for Academics and Sports (NCAS) three times under Hathaway’s watch for its community service efforts. UConn was also honored by the NCAS in 2006 and 2007 for its efforts to assist former student-athletes in earning their college degree. Hathaway’s leadership positions have extended beyond the campus. He recently completed a five-year term as a member of the prestigious NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee, representing the BIG EAST Conference, serving as chair in 201112. As a member of the 10-person committee, Hathaway took part in the selection and administration of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship and the administration of the CBS/Turner television contract. During his tenure at both Colorado State and UConn, he was a member of the NCAA Division I Championships/Competition Cabinet. On the conference level, Hathaway was the chair of the BIG EAST Athletic Directors Executive Committee through November of 2009. He is also past chairman of the BIG EAST Championship and Competition Committee as well as the league’s Finance Committee, and also served on the Television Committee. Hathaway is a past member of the Division I-A Athletic Directors Association Board of Trustees and the Executive Committee of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA). In 2004 The Sporting News named Hathaway to its “Power 100 List” - comprised of the 100 most powerful people in sports. During his time at the University of Connecticut, private fundraising averaged more than $13 million a year. Hathaway was also responsible negotiating several key

Hathaway led a head coaching staff that is one of the most experienced in the country. At the conclusion of Hathaway’s tenure, UConn had 12 head coaches that had been in their current position 10 or more years as of the 2010-11 academic year.
PHILIP E. AUSTIN, President Emeritus, University of Connecticut “I had the pleasure of working with Jeff Hathaway through my tenure as president of the University of Connecticut. He was a valuable member of our senior leadership team and led the athletic program to its most successful era.

In Hathaway’s final year with UConn, the Huskies experienced great athletic success. The men’s basketball team won its third NCAA Division I Championship while the football team played in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. In addition, the women’s basketball team played in the NCAA Final Four for the fourth consecutive season and set a college basketball record for most consecutive wins with 90. The UConn baseball team made history with its first-ever appearance in NCAA Super Regional play. The men’s soccer, women’s soccer and field hockey teams participated in NCAA tournaments while representatives from men’s and women’s track and field and women’s diving also took part in NCAA action.
JOSEPH R. CASTIGLIONE, Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics, University of Oklahoma “From our days in college to the many years as colleagues in the profession, I have always known Jeff Hathaway to be a man of character. He has a tenacious work ethic, an innate ability to establish the right vision, mission and values for the organization he leads and a collaborative style to appropriately involve all stakeholders in the process of setting goals and creating the means to achieve them. At the heart of it all is a passionate commitment to creating the best possible environment for student athlete success. Hofstra University made a wonderful decision in hiring Jeff.”
Hathaway originally came to Connecticut in November of 1990 as senior associate athletic director. In that role, he oversaw the day-to-day operations of the Division of Athletics and served as a program administrator for several sports. During Hathaway’s tenure at Colorado State, he oversaw a 15-sport program – nine women’s teams and six men’s. Hathaway was an extremely successful fundraiser during his time in Fort Collins. The school drew national attention for a $15.2 million gift for football stadium renovations and expansion. Prior to joining UConn, Hathaway served in a number of capacities at his alma mater, the University of Maryland, from 1982 to 1990, including assistant athletics director for marketing and communications, acting assistant athletics director for business affairs, athletics business manager and men’s basketball trainer. Hathaway earned his degree in athletic administration from Maryland in 1981. He later received a master’s degree in general administration from Maryland and is currently continuing work on a PhD in the Department of Educational Leadership at the University of Connecticut. Hathaway and his wife, Paula, have two children – Meghan (22) and Michael (18).

MARK EMMERT, President, National Collegiate Athletic Association “Jeff did a tremendous job as a member and later chair of the Division I Men’s Basketball Committee. His efforts directly contributed to lifelong experiences for thousands of student-athletes. I’m confident that he will bring the same dedication and passion to the athletic program and the student-athletes of Hofstra.” JIM NANTZ, CBS Sports “I have known Jeff Hathaway a long time and there is no one I respect more in college athletics than Jeff Hathaway. This is a big day for Hofstra University and the future of Hofstra has been placed in good hands. Jeff is a high-achieving, high-quality person that I have gotten to know well during his tenure as the Chair of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee. Jeff’s success as a leader speaks for itself. He has the Midas touch!” MIKE SLIVE, Commissioner, Southeastern Conference “I have known Jeff Hathaway for many years and had the pleasure of serving with him on the NCAA Men’s Basketball Committee. Jeff’s extensive experience, his enthusiasm and his energy makes him a leader no matter what room he is in. His commitment to assisting young men and women in getting an education while participating in college sports make him an outstanding choice as Hofstra’s new athletics director.” MIKE TRANGHESE, former Commissioner, Big East Conference “Jeff is an outstanding administrator who will provide Hofstra with great leadership in the future. He has long been a leader in collegiate athletics and Hofstra will do well with Jeff at the helm. ” TOM YEAGER, Commissioner, Colonial Athletic Association “Jeff Hathaway is one of the brightest, creative and competent administrators in college athletics. Everyone in the CAA is excited about his joining our team and we look forward to his contribution to the continued success of the Hofstra program and the CAA.” KEVIN WHITE, Vice President/Director of Athletics, Duke University “Hofstra literally hit the proverbial lottery! Hiring Jeff Hathaway as vice president and director of athletics – a highly seasoned athletic director who is clearly one of the most skilled and talented administrators within the NCAA – is nothing short of an immeasurable leadership acquisition!”

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, the New York Cosmos of the North American Soccer League 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. This past fall the existing FieldTurf was replaced by the new FieldTurf Revolution playing surface.
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, 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
he 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.

ATHLE TIC ACADEMIC SUPPOR T
ofstra University is committed to the pursuit of academic and athletic excellence. The University views participation in intercollegiate athletics as benefiting the studentathlete 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 Family Student-Athlete Development Center 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.

T HE COLONIAL AT HLE TIC ASSOCIATION
ith nearly three decades of success athletically and academically, the Colonial Athletic Association has built a reputation as one of the nation’s top collegiate conferences.
more than 36,000 units of blood over the past 11 years. The first-ever CAA Food Drive Challenge last winter resulted in over 9,500 pounds of donated food.
The CAA encompasses many of the nation’s largest metropolitan areas with a geographic footprint that stretches from Boston to Charleston, S.C. The conference has produced 16 national team champions in five different sports, 33 individual national champions, 13 national players of the year, 12 national coaches of the year and 13 Honda Award winners. Just as impressive, however, are the honors accumulated away from competition, which include five Rhodes Scholars and 23 NCAA post-graduate scholars. In 201213, 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 23 teams in 15 different sports receive NCAA Public Recognition Awards based on the latest Academic Progress Report released in 2013. The landscape of the conference stretches along the majority of the East Coast, and includes several of the nation’s top media markets – New York (1), Philadelphia (4), Boston (7), Washington, D.C. (9) and Baltimore (25). The number of television homes in the CAA market exceeds 20 million. The CAA conducts championships in 22 sports. Male athletes compete for championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis and track & field. 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 2012-13, 27 teams earned NCAA Tournament berths and 43 student-athletes received AllAmerica honors in 14 different sports.
Behind the play of Honda Award winner Elena Delle Donne, the Blue Hens finished the season ranked #13 in the final USA Today Coaches Top 25 poll. Drexel captured the WNIT championship with a 46-43 victory over Utah and James Madison reached the quarterfinals of the WNIT. CAA teams have gone 20-9 in postseason play over the past two years. 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. Three men’s soccer teams earned NCAA Tournament berths last season and each current member of the conference has reached the NCAA Tournament since 2006. In softball, Hofstra reached the NCAA Super Regionals in 2012 and the CAA placed two teams (Hofstra and James Madison) in the NCAA’s for the first time last season. At least two women’s soccer teams have reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament three times in the past six seasons. William & Mary’s men’s cross country squad has made the NCAA Championship in 12 of the past 14 years and the women’s team had two runners (Elaina Balouris and Emily Stites) earn All-America honors in 2012. Delaware and Towson have each reached the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship. The CAA sent three teams to the NCAA Baseball Championship in 2013 and has had at least 11 players selected in nine of the last 11 Major League Baseball drafts. The conference also had individuals earn All-America honors in women’s lacrosse, track and field and swimming & diving last season and had players nationally ranked in tennis and golf.
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 seven years. CAA teams have combined to win 41 games in postseason play since 2006, including 14 victories in the NCAA Tournament. The CAA has posted at least one NCAA Tournament win in six of the past eight years, including the last four in a row. The conference has seen five or more teams reach postseason play in four of the last five seasons.
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 education and life outside of intercollegiate athletics. Among the programs that have been established are an undergraduate research conference, coordination of study abroad programs, visiting faculty programs and a recent partnership with NBC Learn to provide educational videos to over 8,500 public schools across the United States.
In women’s basketball, 2013 CAA champion Delaware defeated West Virginia and North Carolina to become the 12th CAA team to reach the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament.
CAA schools are also very active in community service projects. The CAA Blood Challenge, which is held each fall, has raised
Commissioner Thomas E. Yeager has guided the CAA since its inception. The conference traces its roots back to 1983 when two of its current members- James Madison University and the College of William and Mary - were aligned with East Carolina University, George Mason 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 conference. The transformation from ECAC South to CAA took place on June 6, 1985. Old Dominion University joined the CAA in 1991 and was followed 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 in 2005 and the College of Charleston began its first year as a CAA member on July 1, 2013. Elon University will join the conference beginning in 2014-15.

HOFS TRA IN T HE COM M UNI TY
he Hofstra Women’s Lacrosse team lends a great deal of time to the Long Island community.
This past holiday season the Pride participated in Holiday Magic. The team helped collect, wrap and distribute toys to underprivileged children, providing a bit of joy to those in need. Hofstra is also actively involved in the fight against blood cancer through the HEADstrong Foundation, which was founded by Nick Colleluori before his passing as a result of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The team has raised awareness and a great deal of funds through the sales of “Relentless” t-shirts and lime green shoelaces. Each year the team hosts the Nick Colleluori Classic at James M. Shuart Stadium. The fifth-year event features a full-day of games and serves as a fundraiser for the HEADstrong Foundation. The team is also involved with Surfer’s Healing, which is an organization that teaches children with autism how to surf, along with other activities. Women’s Lacrosse student-athletes assisted with serving food as well as interacting with the children. In September the team took part in the Tunnel to Towers Run to benefit the Stephen Siller Foundation. Siller was a firefighter, who lost his life on September 11, 2001. The run follows the path he took from the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers that day. The team is also involved with a variety of initiatives with Hofstra’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), including reading programs at local schools, the Special Olympics, Long Island Cares Holiday food drives, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island Toy and Coat Drives and the Shake-A-Rake event that assists elderly and disabled community members with yard cleanups. The team has also joined with the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation and is involved with physical fitness programs at local elementary schools, charity walk-a-thons, and cooking and serving meals at a local Ronald McDonald House.

HE AD S TRONG
he team is quite active in the Nick Colleluori HEADstrong Foundation, which was founded by former Pride men’s lacrosse player Nick Colleluori and raises money and awareness for the treatment of blood cancer. Colleluori started the foundation before succumbing to non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2006.
The fifth annual Nick Colleluori Women’s Lacrosse Classic was held September 28 at Hofstra University and there were 11 teams in this year’s event as Hofstra, Central Connecticut State, LIU Post, Iona, LIU Brooklyn, Manhattan, Stony Brook, Villanova, New York Athletic Club, Adelphi and Catholic competed in the all-day tournament. The Colleluori family was on hand sharing their personal experience and progression of their organization with spectators. During the event teams gathered for the inspirational HEADstrong presentation, in
which Cheryl Colleluori addressed the players, recognized the coaches that made the event possible and shared her son’s legacy with all in attendance. The HEADstrong Foundation recognized players from each program with the Nicholas Colleluori Award, presented to a player demonstrating leadership, service and a relentless drive for success on an off the playing field. In its five years of existence, the Nick Colleluori Women’s Lacrosse Classic has raised more than $160,000 for the HEADstrong Foundation. “We are truly grateful to be so closely related to the HEADstrong Foundation, especially being that Nick was a player here,” said Hofstra Coach Shannon Smith. “Like the Colleluori family, our Pride family will continue carrying on his legacy to do whatever we can do to help people who are battling blood cancers.”
