DEPARTMENT of ATHLETICS

MISSION STATEMENT The Department of Athletics and Recreation supports the College’s mission by providing an experiential opportunity for individual development outside of the traditional classroom setting. Backed by committed administrators, coaches, and faculty, all students are challenged and encouraged to reach their physical, intellectual, and social potential through participation in a broad-based program of intercollegiate, club sport, intramural, and recreational offerings. In addition, The Department encourages the development of sportsmanship and positive social attitudes in all constituents: including students, faculty, staff, alumni, and spectators. We seek to establish and maintain an environment that values the principles of fair play, amateur athletic competition, cultural diversity, and gender equality. In this environment, students are provided with experiences that honor effort and perseverance, reward self-discipline, and promote mutual understanding and respect. In pursuant to the College’s mission, the department seeks to change lives by engaging students in a variety of offerings that encourage a healthy lifestyle and challenge participants to meet and exceed personal goals and expectations through sport.

MEN’S GOLF Golf won their second consecutive CCC title and hope to continue the trend next year as the conference gains an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

WOMENÊS TENNIS Women’s tennis (19-4, 7-1) won the CCC title for the second consecutive season by defeating Nichols 5-1 to close out the fall season.

The team eventually fell to Kean University 3-0 in the opening round of the tournament. In his first season as head coach, after graduating from Endicott and spending four years as an assistant, George Chapell brought the Gulls back over the 20-win plateau and with the majority of his roster returning next season he will look to maintain program success. WOMENÊS VOLLEYBALL Women’s volleyball (12-20, 6-2) advanced to the CCC Semifinals where they fell to Salve Regina.

CREW Crew saw the women’s varsity contingent place 3rd at the NECRL Fall Championships, as the men’s varsity squad won their first of the season and the first fall league victory in men’s history. DANCE Endicott’s dance team made program history as they placed 6th at the 2013 UCA and UDA Dance Team National Championships in the Open PomDivision.

ICE HOCKEY Men’s ice hockey (11-8-1) finished 2013 with a trip to the ACHA playoffs, where they fell to UConn as the tournament’s eighth seed. It was the team’s second straight trip to the Northeast Regional, as last year Endicott played Siena as the 10-seed and lost in the first round. Women’s ice hockey (5-7-1) saw great improvement throughout their first full season as an independent program. The team graduated only two players and looks to take strides forward in the upcoming season under head coach Paul Munzing. RUGBY In 2012-13, the inaugural season for rugby at Endicott, the men’s team competed against two schools for a total of three scrimmages. The men squared off against Salem State twice and Western New England once and came away victorious in all three tilts. With a combination of success on the field and the hard work and effort put in by coaches and the administration, Endicott will field an official club team and has been accepted into the prestigious Colonial Coast Rugby Conference (CCRC). The CCRC now has a total of eight members. The women’s team was able to practice and work on various aspects of the game; they will look to gain steam moving forward with the hopes of eventually fielding a full club team of their own. SAILING The sailing team, operating out of Sail Salem, continued to practice and hone their skills on the waters of gorgeous Salem Harbor. With the continued efforts of the coaching staff and team members, the group looks to take to the waters for a regatta in the near future, with an ultimate goal to be on a consistent competition schedule.

...all students are challenged and encouraged to reach their physical, intellectual, and social potential.
