IPFW at a glance

INDIANA UNIVERSITY PURDUE UNIVERSITY F O R T W AY N E

one university. two great names.

The university offers more than 190 academic programs for undergraduate and graduate students who are taught by distinguished professors. It’s not unusual to turn on a television documentary and see a member of IPFW’s faculty as the “resident expert” on topics ranging from dinosaurs to Middle East politics. TM

As northeast Indiana’s premier public university, IPFW is committed to enhancing access to personalized, high-quality learning.

IPFW continues to grow, both in number of students and in facilities. The addition of more than a dozen soccer fields across the St. Joseph River from the main campus has greatly increased athletic opportunities for students as well as members of the community. IPFW has new, apartment-style student housing, offering a more traditional university experience to students. Plans for a new music building and a medical education center are in the works. IPFW’s academic organization is made up of 10 major units, which include the College of Engineering, Technology, and Computer Science; the Richard T. Doermer School of Business and Management Sciences; the School of Arts and Sciences; the School of Education; the School of Health Sciences; and the School of Visual and Performing Arts. It also includes the divisions of Continuing Studies, Labor Studies, Public and Environmental Affairs, and Organizational Leadership and Supervision. There are nearly 100 student organizations on IPFW’s campus. Groups include departmental organizations, honorary societies, religious organizations, social Greek fraternities and sororities, and special-interest groups. There are also several intramural sports. IPFW is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. 2

Fort Wayne history of the summit city Fort Wayne began as an outpost on the western frontier more than 200 years ago. It gained its nickname, the “Summit City,” by being the highest place between the Maumee River and Wabash River basins.

…with a population in excess of 200,000 people, it is the second largest city in Indiana.

Now with a population in excess of 200,000 people, it is the second largest city in Indiana. As such, it offers its citizenry a wide variety of things to do, see, and appreciate. For the sportsminded, there are three professional teams based here: the United Hockey League’s Fort Wayne Komets, the Midwest League’s Single A Baseball Fort Wayne Wizards (whose parent club is the San Diego Padres), and the United Indoor Football Association’s Fort Wayne Freedom. Fort Wayne holds several places in sports history. It is the birthplace of the National Basketball Association and the home of the Daisies, one of five teams in the first professional women’s baseball league. Fort Wayne also has the honor of holding the first night baseball game under lights. For those interested in the performing arts, the Summit City offers venues such as the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, Fort Wayne Ballet, Civic Theatre, Artlink, Fort Wayne Dance Collective, and Fort Wayne Youtheatre. Some little known trivia about Fort Wayne: the inventor of the television, Philo T. Farnsworth, was born here as was fashion designer Bill Blass. Fort Wayne is the home of the washing machine, baking powder, parking meters, magnetic wire, streetlights, and gas pumps.

Mark Pope

INDIANA UNIVERSITY PURDUE UNIVERSITY F O R T W AY N E

director of athletics Mark Pope was named IPFW’s director of athletics in July 2001 as the university was transitioning from NCAA Division II to Division I. That transition was completed Sept. 1, 2002, as IPFW earned NCAA Division I certification — on schedule and on budget.

TM

Since that initial year, Pope has set about transforming IPFW Athletics into a program worthy of the name “Division I.” Among his accomplishments are the following: ▼ The annual IPFW Soccer Showcase was reorganized, drawing 15,000 fans in 2005. ▼ Men’s basketball attendance increased tenfold from 2000, including the highest percentage increase of all Division I institutions in 2003–04. ▼ Women’s volleyball attendance doubled from 2004 to 2005. ▼ Men’s volleyball attendance was ranked third nationally in 2006. ▼ Contributions to Athletics have increased by 50 percent from 2002 to 2004. ▼ The Gates Sports Center and baseball field have undergone significant renovations. ▼ Men’s and women’s golf were added as sponsored sports. ▼ In cooperation with IPFW Alumni Relations and the Indiana–Purdue Student Government Association, IPFW’s Homecoming tradition was created. With these successes, Pope has always focused on the student component of the IPFW student-athlete. Pope’s departmental goal of a 3.0 grade-point average (GPA) has been reached for the past three years. The IPFW softball, tennis, cross country, and track teams have earned All-Academic honors from their respective associations. IPFW Athletics graduates its student-athletes at a rate that is double that of the IPFW all-campus rate. Pope has a B.A. from Purdue University and a J.D. from Indiana University. He has been a member of the bar of the State of Indiana for 27 years. Pope and his wife, Julie, are the proud parents of their two sons, Brent and Brad.

2006 IPFW WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL


Head Coach Kelley Hartley Hutton IPFW Head Women’s Volleyball Coach Kelley Hartley Hutton directed the ’Dons to a 24–6 overall record for their third consecutive 20-plus win season in 2005—all this in just its fifth year of Division I competition. That standing was good for 24th place in the nation in winning percentage (.800), while the squad was also among the nation’s best in digs per game (33rd, 17.85 dpg). This stellar campaign opened with eight straight wins, including titles at the Hofstra and Western Illinois Invitationals. The ’Dons were ranked as a top 10 team in the Midwest Region. Hartley Hutton enters her eighth season at IPFW, boasting a 146–73 (.666) record and a career record of 293–140 (.677) during a 12-year career. She ranks fifth in winning percentages among NCAA head coaches with more than five years experience at a four-year college, but fewer than five years in Division I. She came to IPFW in 1999 after serving one year at Robert Morris University, where she rebuilt that program. In just one year, her recruiting class led the Colonials to a Northeast Conference championship and an NCAA Tournament berth in 1999, redeeming a seventh place league finish the year before. Here, she has led the ’Dons through a transition to the serious Division I volleyball force it is now. She directed IPFW to a 2000 regular-season championship its last year in Division II, competing in the Great Lakes Valley Conference and compiled an overall record of 23–7 that season. In 2001, the ’Dons first year of Division I play, they posted a 13–14 mark followed by a 16–18 season in 2002—just shy of the .500 mark again. In 2003, the ’Dons rolled to a 22–10 record. In 2004, they improved to a 24–10 record. The ’Dons ended the 2004 season ranked 13th in the Midwest Region, and Hartley Hutton was voted “Independent Coach of the Year” for the second-straight year after leading the ’Dons to their second Independent Tournament title in three tries. Her players represent a competitive force in the classroom as well. Hartley Hutton’s team turned in a combined 3.6 grade-point average last fall, while juggling a hectic travel schedule. Middle blocker Claire Jackson, now a senior, earned Independent All-Academic recognition and has achieved a perfect 4.0 GPA in her biology major for six straight semesters. For the educational and cultural experience of her student-athletes’ lifetime, Hartley Hutton took the squad to Brazil in May 2003 for competitions, tourist excursions, and team bonding. It also meant “going home” for Graduate Assistant Coach Fabiana Souza (a native of Belo Horizonte, Brazil) and playing in front of her family in an IPFW jersey. Souza shattered IPFW’s career record for kills setting it at 2,305. The previous record stood at 1,895. She repeated as Independent Offensive Player of the Year in 2005. She was 16th in the nation in kills per game (4.94 kpg). Off the court, Big Brothers/Big Sisters is Hartley Hutton’s favorite nonprofit organization. She has made time to mentor an area “little” since 2002, a relationship she cherishes. IPFW women’s volleyball matches are standard fall events for the organization’s First Friends Program. After those matches, Hartley Hutton and her team use this as an opportunity to talk to area youth about the importance of education and setting goals. A 1991 graduate from the University of Toledo, Hartley Hutton played four years for the Rockets, serving as captain her junior and senior years. She earned an M.S. in sports administration from Bowling Green State University in 1993 while working at the Mid-American Conference office. After completing a one-year NCAA internship with the MAC, she was appointed to a full-time position in 1992. She and her husband, Craig Hutton, were married in February 2004 after meeting at IPFW. They reside in Fort Wayne with their dog, Sir Robert Marley.

A Look Ahead... The Mastodons are on a rampage, achieving 20+ wins each year during the past three seasons. This year’s senior class boasts a 70–26 career record at IPFW with a .729 winning percentage. Nicole Howell, Claire Jackson, and Amanda Pfister must now be the leaders and push once again for 20+ wins for their final season. The Mastodons finished the 2005 season nationally ranked— twice. IPFW was 24th in the nation in winning percentage (.800) and 33rd in digs/game with 17.85. The ’Dons also excelled in the classroom, boasting a team 3.6 GPA last fall while juggling a hectic travel schedule. In the Independent circle, the Mastodons received many accolades. They had three ladies named Players of the Week in 2005 for a total of seven times. Fabiana Souza took the offensive honors four times, while Nicole Howell was named once. Peachy Jankowski was named defensive POW twice in 2005. Academically, Claire Jackson and Ashlee Roth were named to the All-Academic team. Souza once again was named to the All-Independent First Team, while Erika Leitzke and Nicole Howell were named to the Second Team. Jackson took Honorable Mention for All-Independent. Souza rounded out her career on the All-Tournament Team and was the Offensive Player of the Year for a second time. Setters IPFW boasts a young pair of setters for 2006 after graduating two seniors, Ashlee Roth and Erika Leitzke. The Mastodons must replace 1,171 assists last year alone in starting setter Leitzke. The transfer from Troy State made an instant impact after sitting out her junior year. Sophomore Jessica Dominiak (Waterville, Ohio/St. Ursula Academy) stepped up during spring ball after only seeing action in 27 matches last year as a freshman with 182 assists. Shannon Reuter (Tiffin, Ohio/Tiffin Columbian) comes in after sitting out most of her senior year at Tiffin Columbian due to injury, but her résumé speaks for itself. Reuter was the District 6 Player of the Year in 2004 and was named 1st Team All-District 6 in 2003 and 2004.

Junior Peachy Jankowski (Fraser, Mich./Fraser) returns after yet another strong season. Jankowski dug up 418 balls in 2005, leading the way for the ’Dons, averaging 3.83 digs/game. Sophomore Christine Simon (Bowling Green, Ohio/Bowling Green) did not see much floor time in 2005, but she made the most of the time she was in, digging 53 balls in 57 games. Freshman Jamie Schwartz (Decatur, Ind./South Adams) will be thrown into the ’Dons depth at libero this season after a successful four-year career at South Adams in volleyball and basketball. Schwartz set a new school record in assists at South Adams and received numerous All-ACAC accolades. She was a member of the Indiana All-Star team in 2006. Outside Hitters

Liberos

The ’Dons hold the most depth in their outside hitters. With four returning, Nicole Howell, Amanda Pfister, Cynara Martins, and Kylee Hervey, and a newcomer, transfer student Patricia Azevedo, the outsides look to be the most dangerous this year. Last year’s outsides combined for a total of 703 kills and 679 digs.

IPFW holds what many teams may not, three liberos. Many may see it as a problem, but with a junior, sophomore, and freshman all fighting for one spot, ball handling skills and strategy will be key.

Howell (Fort Wayne, Ind./Bishop Luers) has steadily improved her game during the past three years. She has become a force not only at the net, but in the back row as well,

2006 IPFW WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL


averaging 2.93 kills/game and 3.03 digs/game last year. Howell was second only to graduated senior Fabiana Souza in kills.

the Year for 2005. Roehm was also a member of the state runner-up team and named 1st team All-MAC and 1st Team All-Ohio.

Pfister (Auburn, Ind./DeKalb) doubled her kills in just one year. She knocked down 200 last year, averaging 2.30 per game, while only seeing action in 87 games.

The ’Dons will once again face another tough schedule with a lot of road trips and invitationals. First up is Ball State where the ’Dons will face the Cardinals, Michigan State, and Xavier before they head home for their first home match against Western Michigan. The ladies will also compete in the Omni William Penn Duquesne/RMU Invitational, Michigan/Nike Challenge, and the Utah Valley State/LaQuinta Invitational in September.

Martins (Belo Horizonte, Brazil/Centro Educational Miniero) was a serious threat in the back row last year, posting 333 digs, second only to Jankowski, with an average of 3.14 per game. Martins recorded 221 kills in 2005, third on the team, with an average of 2.08 per game. Hervey (Indianapolis, Ind./Pike) averaged just 1.25 kills/game last year after seeing limited action in 24 games. Azevedo (Belo Horizonte, Brazil/Western Nebraska Community College) is yet another Belo Horizonte native to grace IPFW’s court. Azevedo set the mark high at WNCC, setting the single season career kill record with 851 kills in 2004 and was tied for 6th in hitting percentage in a single season with .374. She also set the career mark in kills with 1,514 in two seasons. Middle Hitters The Mastodons took their biggest hit in the line-up in the middle. Fabiana Souza’s (Belo Horizonte, Brazil/Centro Univ. de Belo Horizonte) graduation created a void of 524 kills from the 2005 season. Souza was nationally ranked 16th in kills per game with 4.94. Overall, she set the new school mark in career kills with 2,305.

The ’Dons will host their seventh IPFW Invitational in 2006. Only once since Head Coach Kelley Hartley Hutton has taken over the reigns has IPFW not hosted a tournament (2001). This year’s tournament will feature five teams: Robert Morris, South Dakota State, North Florida, Texas Pan American, and IPFW. IPFW will host the majority of its home matches in October with four and round out the season with in-state rival IUPUI on November 3 at the Gates Sports Center before heading to the Independent Women’s Volleyball Championships hosted by North Dakota State. The 2006 season proves to be yet another opportunity where the ’Dons could post 20+ wins.

Claire Jackson (Fort Wayne, Ind./South Side) rounds out her senior year as a solid middle. Jackson is currently on the watch for the block-assist career record. She needs just 40 to match the current leader. Jackson has steadily improved her game during her years at IPFW.

A little more about Nicole... Best personal moment in volleyball: It was in high school during my junior year when we were unranked and we beat the number two team in the state to go to the state finals. Superstitions: I have to have my stuffed animal with me when I fly or I think I’m going to die. I have a lot more. I can be very superstitious sometimes. What do you look forward to this season? Winning! And just having another good season and having fun with everyone on the team. If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? Back to California. I love it there. Maybe somewhere in Europe, but I don’t ever want to fly over an ocean. If you could have any superpower what would it be? To call timeouts like Zach Morris does on Saved By the Bell. What is your most prized possession? I don’t really have one, but if someone stole my stuffed animal dog, I would beat them up. Other than volleyball, I’m really go at... entertaining little kids and tripping over my own feet. If you had three wishes, what would you wish for? More wishes of course! I’d wish for fast food to be good for you and that everyone was happy and healthy. Person you would most like to meet: The Backstreet Boys because I used to be obsessed with them. I want to see how short they really are. Craziest/wierdest teammate: Kylee because she will just start dancing out of nowhere.
