ATHLETIC DIRECTOR MARK POPE 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 on Sept. 1, 2002, as IPFW earned NCAA Division I certification — on schedule and on budget. 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 11,500 fans in 2003 and 15,000 fans in 2004 ▼ Men’s basketball attendance increased tenfold from 2000, including the highest percentage increase of all Division I institutions in 2003–2004 ▼ Women’s volleyball attendance tripled from 2002 to 2003 ▼ Men’s volleyball attendance was third nationally in 2004 ▼ Contributions to Athletics have increased by 50 percent from 2001 to 2003 ▼ The Gates Center and baseball field have undergone significant renovations ▼ Men’s and women’s golf were added as sponsored sports ▼ In cooperation with the IPFW Alumni and Student Government Associations, IPFW’s Homecoming tradition was created ▼ The IPFW Stomp Band was organized Despite these successes, Pope has always focused on the student component of the IPFW student-athlete. Last year Pope’s departmental goal of a 3.0 grade-point average was realized, as IPFW student-athletes achieved a 3.01 GPA. 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 holds 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 two sons, Brent and Brad.

IPFW Head Coach Arnie Ball The 2005 season will be IPFW Head Coach Arnie Ball’s 25th at the helm of the men’s volleyball program. Coach Ball will pass an impressive milestone during his silver anniversary season. Ball is just two wins shy of 400 for his outstanding career at IPFW. Success has been the constant that has followed Ball and fueled his dream of building IPFW into a program that contends each and every season. Under his leadership, the Mastodons have won five of the last 11 Midwest Intercollegiate Volleyball Association Championships, produced 13 NCAA All-Americans, two Olympians, six conference Players of the Year, and countless All-Conference performers. Ball has also taken four teams to the NCAA Final Four, finishing fourth in 1992 and 1994 and taking third place in 1991 and 1999. This season will once again bring the challenge of capturing IPFW’s first NCAA men’s volleyball championship. He will have the task of blending in freshman talent with NCAA FirstTeam All-American Matt Zbyszewski and All-MIVA First-Team selection Serdar Sikca.

won the Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC) four times and earned a spot in the NCAA Division II Tournament in 1987 and 1988. He ended his eight-year run with an overall record of 231-102. Ball also has a wealth of international coaching experience. In 2003, USA volleyball called upon Ball to lead a young and inexperienced U.S. World University Team at the games in Daegu, South Korea. Ball’s team responded with a number of impressive wins, including a marathon five-set match, over France that clinched the team a Bronze Medal. In 1983, Ball served as head coach of the North Squad at the National Sports Festival in Colorado Springs, Colo. In 1985, he served as an assistant for the World University Games men’s team in Kobe, Japan. In 1987, Ball directed the North Team to the title at the ’87 Olympic Festival. In 1988, he served as the director of the USVBA Junior Elite Camp in Boulder, Colo.

In 24 years at the helm, Ball has amassed a career record of 398-282. He was named the Midwest Intercollegiate Volleyball Association Coach of the Year in 1997 and 1999. This past November, Ball was honored by the Fort Wayne Sports Corporation. Ball was presented with the prestigious Hilliard Gates achievement award for lifetime accomplishments and contributions to the sporting community of Fort Wayne. Ball also was the first head coach of the women’s volleyball program at IPFW. From 1981 to 1988, IPFW 8

2005 IPFW MEN’S VOLLEYBALL


Ball also served as head coach of the 1989 World University Games team, before being selected as an assistant coach for the 1991 World University team. In 1990, Ball coached the ’90 Olympic Festival team to a Silver Medal. He was also asked to serve as the coach of the South squad at the 1993 Olympic Festival in San Antonio, Texas. In 1994 his North team won Gold at the Olympic Festival in St. Louis, Mo. Again in 1997, Ball was called upon to serve as an assistant for the World University Team. In the summer of 2000, Ball had the opportunity to be a scout for the U.S. National Team in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia. It was the first time since 1994 that Coach Ball and his son Lloy, the starting setter for the U.S. team, would reunite on the volleyball court. A graduate of Ball State University, Ball earned both bachelor’s and master’s degrees from BSU in 1967 and 1971, respectively. During his undergraduate years, he enjoyed an outstanding playing career, lettering three years and earning All-MIVA honors twice. During his senior year, Ball was chosen as team captain and named Most Valuable Player. Ball has competed as a player in the United States Volleyball Association for many years, gaining numerous awards and honors, including All-American recognition in 1990 and 1991. After graduating from Ball State, Ball took a teaching position at New Haven (Indiana) High School. He then moved to Harding High School, where he stayed for eight years. At Harding, Ball was the coach of both the boys’ and girls’ volleyball programs. He led the boys’ team to an overall record of 74-19, with three Indiana Volleyball Coaches Association Championships. His girls’ teams posted a mark of 75-32 and captured one sectional and two conference titles. Coach Ball and his wife, Sandy have three adult children, Lloy, Amy and Jana. They have three grandchildren, Dyer and twin boys, Caden and Jamison.

Assistant Coach Mark Franke Mark Franke has been involved with the IPFW men’s volleyball team in official and unofficial capacities since the team’s formation in 1981. Since 1989, Franke has been a volunteer assistant coach with the team and has been part of all four of IPFW’s NCAA Final Four appearances. He has no volleyball experience or background, having learned the sport on the IPFW bench, and takes pride in being known as the most volleyballignorant coach in the NCAA. Still, Franke is an integral part of IPFW’s winning strategy because of his unique ability to record and analyze an opponent’s tendencies throughout the course of a match, and then predicting the next play they will run. He is well-loved by the players but only because he carries the team’s meal money on the road. Most importantly, he is the host of Channel 56’s Arnie Ball Show, widely acclaimed as the most unprofessional sports show on Fort Wayne’s cable system. A 1973 graduate of IPFW with a major in economics, Franke has been employed at IPFW for the past 27 years. He currently serves the university as assistant comptroller, director of financial aid, and student information system director. Franke has also earned two master’s degrees in business at IPFW. Coach Franke met and married his wife Tommy while they were undergraduates at IPFW. Tommy holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education from IPFW. She is principal and a 7th–8th grade teacher at Ascension Lutheran School and serves as official scorekeeper for both the men’s and women’s volleyball teams.

Assistant Coach Dennis Johnson Dennis Johnson has been involved with IPFW volleyball since 1988. From 1988 to 1992, Johnson served as an assistant coach and helped the team to two NCAA Final Four appearances. After the 1992 season, Johnson left the team to pursue other avenues. In 1998, Johnson returned to help the team in an informal capacity and then became an assistant coach again in 1999 and helped the team to another NCAA Final Four appearance. Before coming to IPFW, Johnson coached the New Haven (Ind.) high school boys’ and girls’ volleyball teams from 1977 to 1988. In 1981, his boys’ team posted a 15-5 record and finished second in the state. From 1981 to 1988, his girls’ teams had an overall record of 150-50, winning the sectional title once and the conference crown twice. He also received Coach of the Year honors once. Johnson received a bachelor’s degree in business education in 1968 and a master’s degree in 1973, both from Ball State University. At Ball State, he was a three-year letter winner and a two-time All-Conference selection. Johnson also served as co-captain during the 1968 campaign when the Cardinals finished 33-3. Johnson has been a business law and economics teacher at New Haven High School since 1968. 10

Assistant Coach Ryan “Rock” Perrotte Ryan Perrotte returns as the assistant coach of the IPFW men’s volleyball team. He is originally from Windsor, Ontario, Canada. A former four-year starter for the Mastodons, Perrotte presently holds the block assist record at IPFW with 429. He is also the current record holder for highest hitting percentage in a match (.850 vs. Ohio State, 1999). Perrotte played an integral role for the team that won the MIVA championship and participated in the 1999 NCAA Final Four at UCLA. That same year, he was selected MIVA All-Conference Second Team. In his four-year playing career for IPFW, Perrotte helped the Mastodons amass a 67-33 record. Since 1999, Perrotte has been a broadcaster with College Access Channel 56, providing outstanding play-by-play and insightful color commentary for various IPFW athletic events. Perrotte received a bachelor’s degree in business accounting and just recently completed a master’s degree in communication.

2005 Season Outlook

P

atience is the buzzword for the IPFW men’s volleyball team in the 2005 season. The Mastodons are coming off a 14-11 season, which saw them go 12-4 in the Midwest Intercollegiate Volleyball Association, which was good enough for a three-way tie for second place. But IPFW suffered a disappointing loss in the first round of the conference tournament. Gone from this year’s team are seniors Isaac White and Dustin Sherman. Also gone, unexpectedly from the team, are three-year letter winner and starting setter Dennis Santiago, and sophomore outside hitter Christiano Moriera. Santiago made the decision to forego his senior season to play professionally in his native Puerto Rico, while Moriera returned to Brazil. “With Dennis leaving us at a late date, it is going to put us in the dilemma of who is going to be our setter,” said IPFW head coach Arnie Ball. “We’ve got three guys who are all trying to be that guy, but we don’t know what is going to happen come January.”

Those three guys are junior Mike Randolph, who seems to have a leg up in the competition. But he will also be pushed by freshmen Dan McNerney and Steve Rogers. After a couple of exhibition matches with UC Santa Barbara, it is clear that passing will be one of the biggest challenges for IPFW to overcome in 2005. “I’m not sure I have an answer for how to fix that,” Ball said. “Patience is going to be a great virtue for Coach (Ryan) Perrotte,” he joked. Along with finding a setter, IPFW will need to make a decision on who will play the outside opposite of All-American right side Matt Zbyszewski. “We’ve got a whole bunch of guys competing for that outside position but no one who is really standing out as a great passer,” Ball noted. “We’ve got some 2005 IPFW MEN’S VOLLEYBALL

guys who can bang the ball, we’ve got some guys that can serve the ball, but we don’t have anyone who is truly outstanding. So from that standpoint, it is really a very healthy situation because they are competing, but what we need is for someone to step forward and really make it happen.” That person could be sophomore Josh Collins. Collins split time last season with Moriera and senior Mitch Dreisbach opposite Zbyszewski in 2004. Collins averaged just under two kills per game while digging up 1.20 balls per game. “He’s got the best arm out there, and he’s really working hard on his passing,” Ball said. “So we hope that he will continue to improve as the season goes along. He’s got a really great attitude about trying to get better.” Dreisbach, who had very similar numbers to Collins last season (2.10 kills/1.08 digs per game) will also have a shot to win the outside starting spot. Junior redshirt Nick Belman should also see some playing time on the outside along with sophomore Jarrod Quillen and freshman Jason Hemphill. While there may be some uncertainty about the setter position and ball handling, the Mastodons have some great strengths entering this season. As mentioned, IPFW returns First Team All-American Matt Zbyszewski. Zbyszewski led the nation in kills per game (5.57) and points per game (6.65). But according to Coach Ball, Zbyszewski will have to be patient and not get frustrated while the younger players grow into their roles. “That will be one of our greatest challenges, because it has showed up already this fall. I know he is frustrated, as we are, but in the same token, he’s been here long enough that he has to show the leadership skills and the patience because it is a long, long season. Lots of great things can happen if he is a major contributor. Whether it be with his serve, or blocking, or whatever, I truly think that the level of this team will grow somewhat dramatically or stay somewhat stagnant depending on his approach.” IPFW will also return three of four players ranked in the blocking category in the MIVA. Junior Serdar Sikca was tops in the league at 1.66 blocks per game. Also ranked were junior Mike Daiga, Santiago, and Zbyszewski. You might just see an IPFW freshman on that list this year. “We’ve had a really nice surprise in Josh Stewart,” Ball said. The 6′8″ 13


2005 Season Outlook freshman has impressed Ball so much, that he might just crack the starting lineup, which could prove interesting at other positions. “Stewart is going to be a really good blocker. Once again, we have to be patient with him, but Serdar has been really good about working with him and teaching him. He catches on quickly, and he’s a really hard worker. We might move Daiga to the outside if that position continues to be an issue, so we think that the blocking part of our game is going to get even better.”

The goal Coach Ball (who is two wins shy of 400 for a career) sets every year is to win the NCAA Championship. To do that, the Dons must first win the MIVA. According to Ball, the conference should be wide open this year. “If our guys are patient, and we get the kind of leadership we need from Matty (Zbyszewski), we are going to be right in the hunt. Everyone has had some turnover, (and Lewis has been banned from post-season play for two years) so with our nucleus of Matty, Serdar, Mike, and Josh, I think we should be right in the middle of the thing.”

Freshman Mike Morici looks to be a lock at libero, but Brock Ullrich may also see some action there. Morici, however, is a natural libero. “He’s got a wonderful, wonderful attitude, and that is what you need at that position. He’s not like some other guys we’ve bounced around saying…‘we need you here,’ ‘now we need you there.’ Mike has zeroed in on that position, and he has worked his tail off.”

History of Fort Wayne 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 and Wabash river basins. 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 sports minded, there are two professional sports teams based here: the United Hockey League’s Fort Wayne Komets and the Midwest League for Single A Baseball’s Fort Wayne Wizards, whose parent club is the San Diego Padres. Fort Wayne holds several places in sports history. It is the birthplace of the National Basketball Association and the home of the Daisy’s, 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.

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

Fort those who are interested in the performing arts, the Summit City offers venues such as the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, Fort Wayne Ballet, the 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.

Putting the Student in Student-Athlete

O

ver the last few years, the NCAA and its member colleges and universities have worked hard to emphasize the student in the term student-athlete. Academic standards and rules have been developed and changed to ensure that student-athletes can excel in the classroom as they do in their sports. The result of these reforms has been that studentathletes are more likely than ever before to succeed in the collegiate environment. The CHAMPS/Life Skills program was developed by the NCAA to help prepare student-athletes for the challenges of life beyond the playing field. The focus of the program is on commitments viewed as critical to personal growth: academic excellence, personal development, service and career development. In addition, NCAA schools work hard to offer further academic support programs to help student-athletes prosper. These programs offer access to study facilities and tutors as well as monitor student-athlete progress. One result of these programs is that NCAA Division I student-athletes have been consistently graduating at a rate higher than the rest of the student body. For the class entering college in 1990, 56 percent of the overall student body at NCAA Division I institutions graduated, while Division I student-athletes graduated at a rate of 58 percent. The rate does not include student-athletes who transfer to and graduate from another institution. Minimum academic requirements that student-athletes must meet to play sports as freshmen in college are one reason for the higher graduation rates. In 1982, a group of college presidents, sponsored by the American Council on Education, proposed a set of minimum academic standards to determine freshman athletics eligibility. The first set of standards was implemented in 1986. They required that freshmen graduate high school with a minimum grade-point average of 2.000 in 11 core academic courses and a minimum standardized test score of 700 on the SAT or 15 on the ACT to be eligible to play sports and receive an athletics scholarship. Five years ago, the number of required core academic courses was raised to 13

42

and in 1996, a grade-point average and test-score sliding index went into effect for Division I. This scale allows studentathletes with higher grades to qualify with lower test scores and vice versa.

Wanna Play? Know the Rules Any high-school student who is interested in playing sports at the NCAA Division I or II level should learn about the standards as early as possible. In addition, high-school student-athletes should talk to their guidance counselors and coaches to learn more. High-school students can also call the NCAA’s Eligibility Hotline, 800/638-3731. This number features recordings with information on a number of freshman eligibility topics, including accommodations for students with learning disabilities. Students can also order a free copy of the “Guide for the College-Bound Student-Athlete” by calling the hotline and following the prompts. Information about the recruiting process and about initial-eligibility requirements is available online at NCAA Online (www.ncaa.org). The NCAA’s Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse ensures that student-athletes have met the academic requirements and certifies their eligibility to play sports as freshmen. High-school student-athletes aspiring to play Division I or II athletics

AT H L E T I C

A S S O C I AT I O N

should register with the clearinghouse after completing their junior year. Clearinghouse information and registration forms are available from highschool guidance counselors; from the NCAA Eligibility Hotline (800/638-3731) or from the NCAA Clearinghouse, P.O. Box 4044, Iowa City, IA 52243-4044, telephone 319/337-1492. The clearinghouse keeps registered student-athletes informed about the qualifications they have and have not met concerning freshmen eligibility. Once student-athletes are enrolled in college, there are more academic standards to be met. Student-athletes must show continuing progress toward a degree each year, including a minimum number of credits passed. From the junior year on, these standards place great emphasis on progress made toward a specific degree program and ensure that student-athletes don’t accumulate large numbers of credits that won’t help them earn a specific degree. The NCAA also has established various scholarship and grant programs to encourage student-athletes to pursue their undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. The Degree-Completion Grant program assists those who have exhausted their eligibility for institutional financial aid. There are also Women’s and Ethnic Minority Enhancement programs and several postgraduate scholarship opportunities. The end result? Student-athletes are now more likely than ever to enter their collegiate programs prepared and ready to succeed athletically and academically.

Ball was chosen by the NCAA as Freshman of the Year in 1991, and was the Midwest Intercollegiate Volleyball Association Player of the Year in 1993 and 1994. Ball continues to play professional volleyball in Europe.
