t’s loud, it’s usually full for volleyball matches, and it contains some of the most knowledgeable fans in America. Juniata volleyball players love it; opposing players dread it.   The Kennedy Sports + Recreation Center has been the only home of Juniata volleyball since the program’s founding. With permanent seating for 950 and a total seating capacity of 1,350 with auxiliary seating, is often filled with boisterous Juniata students and fans. The upper mezzanine allows fans to get different perspectives on play – perhaps contributing to the fact Juniata fans are some of the most volleyball savvy in Division III. The mezzanine also helps trap sound at floor level, intensifying the volume. All of this combines to give Juniata a huge home court advantage. Over the program’s entire history, Juniata has lost just 26 matches on the Kennedy Sports + Recreation Center court.   The court is just steps away from Juniata’s refurbished locker room, the athletic training room, and the Brumbaugh Fitness Center, making Kennedy the home-away-from-home for Juniata women’s volleyball athletes.

Head Coach

Heather Pavlik • Juniata ‘95 • Second season

hree-time All-American and long-time assistant Heather Pavlik ‘95 is in her second season as head coach of Juniata women’s volleyball, after taking the reins from former mentor Larry Bock in the spring of 2011.   In her first season at the helm, Pavlik guided the Eagles to a 27-8 overall record and the program’s 31st consecutive conference title and appearance in the NCAA tournament. Juniata continued its streak of being the only program to qualify for every Division III women’s volleyball championship, and advanced to the regional championship match.   Under Pavlik’s tutelage two Eagles earned All-America honors in 2011, while senior libero Libby Morrison was both the Landmark Conference Player of the Year and Specialist of the Year, and was a Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-District honoree.   “Heather was the obvious choice to continue the rich tradition of Juniata women’s volleyball, and build upon the program’s accomplishments under Larry Bock,” said Dean of Students Kris Clarkson, at the time of Pavlik’s hiring on January 19, 2011. “She has been a part of much of that success, as a student, as an athlete, and as a coach, and understands perhaps better than anyone what it takes to be a successful student-athlete at Juniata College.”   The 2010 campaign, Pavlik’s last season prior to moving into her new role as head coach, was Pavlik’s 15th on the bench with Juniata women’s volleyball and her eighth since being named associate head coach prior to

the 2003 season. In her 15 seasons as assistant and later associate head coach, the Eagles amassed a record of 493-63, and she was on the bench helping guide Juniata to its NCAA Division III national championships in 2004 and 2006.   During her tenure with Juniata women’s volleyball, the Eagles have produced 37 AllAmerica honors. Her work with the team’s setters has produced six All-Americans and three Division III national players of the year.   Pavlik also served as an assistant coach with the Juniata men’s volleyball program from 1998 through 2001. The Eagles captured their first Molten Division III Invitational title in 1998 with Pavlik as an assistant coach, as well as the EIVA Division III crown. Juniata captured its second EIVA Division III title in 1999, while placing fourth at the Molten Invitational.   A 1995 graduate of Juniata College with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology, Pavlik earned American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) First team All-America honors in 1992, 1993, and 1994. She is a 2005 inductee into the Juniata College Sports Hall of Fame, and was one of six former collegiate players named to the NCAA Division III Women’s Volleyball Silver Anniversary Team.   Pavlik was formerly Heather Blough before marrying Mark Pavlik, the head coach of the Penn State men’s volleyball program, in June 1997. The couple lives in Cornpropst Mills, Pa., with their son, Jackson. She is a native of Johnstown, Pa., and a graduate of Richland High School.

PROGRAM COACHES EAGLES REVIEW HISTORY JUNIATA

After working hard in the off-season and playing non-stop volleyball in preseason, Juniata is ready for another go at a national title.

the position to optimal level, Pavlik certainly has some flexibility in creating her lineup and competition in the practice gym. SETTER   Junior transfer student Sarah McCarthy brings two years of experience playing volleyball at Furman University before deciding to finish out her collegiate campaign as a Juniata Eagle.   Although McCarthy has more collegiate experience on paper, freshman Adena Delozier has adjusted to the pace of college volleyball very quickly and brings an aggressive demeanor to the court. The competition between the two setters will make gym an exciting and challenging place to train. Delozier and McCarthy are also complementary and cooperative in their efforts to make the Juniata offense very effective.

  The 2012 Eagles have nothing short of a

brutal schedule awaiting them, including inviting three of the top four ranked teams on the Division III AVCA Coaches Top 25 preseason poll into Kennedy S+RC this season.   And Juniata is up for the challenge.   Why? Because the Eagles return 1,117 of their 1,533 kills from last season, just 55 kills short of what opponents combined for against Juniata. A .206 hitting percentage from last season’s attackers, coupled with some of the most well prepared freshmen head coach Heather Pavlik has ever seen will certainly aide Juniata in its quest for its 32nd consecutive conference title and another visit to the NCAA D-III Championship tournament. OUTSIDE HITTER   Versatile senior captain Kelsey Fuller anchors Juniata’s corps of left side hitters, bringing a 2.48 kills per set and .182 hitting percentage to the attack. Fuller’s passing, defense and overall ball control help to steady the Juniata back court.   Co-captain junior Rachelle Wiegand has put in her time in the gym over the off-season and is looking to improve on her 2.48 kills per set that she rang-up last season. Wiegand registered the most kills on the squad last season with 231 followed closely by Fuller’s 218.  Junior Amy Miller and sophomore Cat Scholl will also see ample time at the outside hitter position. Miller had 159 kills last season in 64 sets for an impressive 2.48 kills per set. Scholl saw the floor in 54 sets with 109 kills.  Freshman Kristin Collins will add some size at the outside hitter position with her 6-1 stature. The rookie from Freedom, Pa. has a great arm swing to go along with a wealth of high-level club experience. MIDDLE HITTER  Sophomore Christine Sumner and junior Courtney Lydick will be leading a talented group of middle hitters that includes the addition of two freshmen. Sumner, who hit at a .259 attacking percentage in 2011, is also a great blocker and will be very effective in slowing down opponents’ hitters. Third in kills of the returners last season is Lydick whose altitude and quickness allows her to score both in front of and behind the setter.   The 6-1 California native, Karley Christian, will also see time at middle hitter this season,

Outside hitter and co-captain Kelsey Fuller, a 2011 All-Landmark Conference First Team selection, returns for her senior season second on the squad in kills with 218. as well as some at opposite. Christian has been challenged throughout her high school and club career by the high level of competition in California and this experience will allow her to make an immediate impact as an Eagle. Right alongside Christian is Lexi Schmidt from Westlake, Ohio. Schmidt’s work ethic and athleticism will have her in the mix at the middle hitter position as well. OPPOSITE   After a solid freshman season, Amelia Kepler, will look to add to her 147 kills at a .227 attack percentage and a team high 55 total blocks from last season. Not only is Kepler very effective offensively, but her blocking and serving will score points for the team in 2012. Cat Scholl will also be an option on the right antennae. Scholl’s big arm and explosiveness will allow the setters to spread out the offense and put pressure on other teams.   Freshman left-hander Bryce Arnold provides the Eagles with depth and athleticism at the opposite position. Her fast arm swing and quick feet add a new dimension at the opposite position.   With three talented players that can play

LIBERO/DEFENSIVE SPECIALIST   With two-time AVCA All-America Libby Morrison moving on with graduation, the libero spot was left for someone to fill and sophomore Brittani Young has certainly stepped up to the challenge. Under Morrison’s tutelage, Young developed her game during her freshman year and increasingly improved over last season, hitting double-digits in digs over five in the team’s last nine games of 2011.  Sophomore Stephanie Dodson and freshman Gabrielle Ooyama both will share time as the squad’s defensive specialists. Both are very athletic, will battle for playing time this season, and will often be called upon to deliver a crucial serve. SCHEDULE   Juniata’s 2012 schedule again pits the Eagles against the elite in Division III women’s volleyball, with an eye toward preparing the team for post-season play. The Eagles host its ASICS Invitational just two weeks into the season where they will face defending national champions Wittenberg University and No. 1 Christopher Newport University.   In early October, Juniata heads out west to Thousand Oaks, Calif. to play in Cal Lutheran’s Invitational. At the tournament, Juniata will square-off against Cal Lutheran, Whittier and Claremont-M-S.   The annual Wid Guisler Tournament in midOctober will feature a grudge match against Eastern, who knocked the Eagles out of the NCAA Championship last season, as well as Emory and Heidelberg. The Eagles close out the regular season with a trip to Washington- St. Louis to play the Bears to prepare for postseason competition.

The Landmark Conference is a Division III athletics conference which was formed in the winter of 2005 in an effort to bring together colleges and universities from the mid-atlantic region with similar philosophies regarding the role of athletics as part of the overall collegiate experience. On November 30, 2006 it was announced that The Catholic University of America, Drew University, Goucher College, Juniata College, Moravian College, Susquehanna University and The United States Merchant Marine Academy had formed a soon-to-be-named Division III conference, with the University of Scranton becoming the eighth member in November of 2006. The conference began competition in September 2007.   The most literal inspiration for the Landmark Conference’s name comes from the many well-known physical landmarks of the Mid-Atlantic region encompassed by the conference. The name also reflects the significance of the institutions’ decision to align themselves with other colleges and universities of similar size, educational philosophies, and high academic standards. It highlights the Landmark Conference’s intention to stand out not only in athletics, but also in academics, emphasizing educational achievement and the important role played by athletics in the undergraduate experience.   Demonstrating the Landmark Conference’s dedication to helping student-athletes balance their obligations and excel across disciplines, conference leaders have already decided to hold long-distance games only on weekends, minimizing the time student-athletes will have to spend away from class. The conference institutions boast some of the best academic reputations in the region, and the eight programs have combined to produce numerous Academic All-Americans and Academic All-District selections in recent years.

COACHES EAGLES

Juniata overcomes history, Bears to win national title ROCHESTER, Minn. – The looks on the faces of the Juniata College women’s volleyball team as well as the smile flashed by coach Larry Bock suggest that believe it or not, it was worth the wait.   The 24-year wait finally ended in Rochester, Minn., Saturday night as the Juniata College women’s volleyball team captured its first Division III National Championship on the strength of a 3-0 victory over Washington University (Mo.).   Juniata finished the season with a record of 37-3, while Washington finished 32-7. Juniata claimed the match by game scores of 30-27, 30-27, and 30-28.   After years of heart-breaking defeats and near-misses, Juniata captured the elusive national title on its 19th trip to the national semifinals, and its fifth appearance in the national championship match. In typical fashion, Bock deflected the attention and was understated following the match.   “For 28 years I’ve come back to these press conferences and have had to come from a locker room with girls who were crying – this is much better,” Bock said. “I couldn’t feel better about the school I work for and for this team, which deserves all the credit. I also have to pass the credit to my assistant coach Heather Pavlik – I’ve been riding her shoulders for a number of years.”   As it has throughout the season, Juniata played well early and kept things tight. Juniata took the lead on the serving of Tournament MVP Carli Dale. Washington tied the score late at 27, but Juniata followed with kills from Katie Laucks and Lindsey Habel, then an ace from Laucks to seal the win.   “We wanted to get off to a good start and prove that we were going to be annoying and hard to get rid of,” Bock said. “We were able to do that, and then just kept serving and passing well. We did a good job with that.”   Game two was controlled by Juniata most of the way. Juniata led by as many as five, including a late 22-17 edge.   It was Washington that held the lead throughout much of the deciding game. A kill from Stephanie Kines tied the match at 14. The two teams then traded side outs, with a block from Kines finally swinging the lead to 22-20 in favor of Juniata. The Eagles kept the lead at two points down the stretch, until the Bears knotted the match at 25 with a kill from Emilie Walk. Katie Charles and Laucks followed with back-to-back

kills, then Habel had a pair of finishes down the stretch, including the match clincher.   “We wanted to contain their right side hitter (Whitney Smith) and we were able to do a pretty good job with that,” Bock said. “That’s a classy program at Washington, and it was nice to be able to get one against them. It felt right to have it be a Juniata-Washington match for the championship.”   “Juniata’s back court defense was the difference,” Washington Head Coach Rich Luenemann said. “They played defense at the best level of any Division III team. If there’s anyone in America that it was okay to lost to, it was Larry Bock.”   The match was the third time Juniata and Washington have matched up in the championship match. The Bears claimed victories in 1993

and 1996. But Juniata had claimed the last two meetings against Washington, including a 3-0 victory at Washington this year. Juniata ends the year having won 20 consecutive matches.   The victory capped an emotional season for Juniata which saw the team enjoy several program firsts, but also deal with the serious illness of teammate Erin Dodson of Altoona.   Dodson, who was stricken with brain cancer early in the year, made the trip to Rochester to be with her teammates. The Eagles were looking to earn that elusive title for themselves, but also for their legendary coach.   “We didn’t just do this for our team,” Kines said. “We did it for Larry and for every former Juniata volleyball player that has gone through the program.”

Eagles women’s volleyball claims second Division III national title By Joel Cookson, Juniata Sports Information Director SALEM, Va. – It took the Juniata College women’s volleyball team 24 trips to the NCAA Tournament before winning the program’s first national championship, which the Eagles accomplished in 2004. Championship number two came much more quickly as Juniata overcame a two-gamesto-one deficit to claim a 3-2 win over Washington University (Mo.) in the NCAA Division III Championship match to claim the program’s second Division III national championship Saturday night in Salem, Va. Juniata finishes the season with a record of 41-1 while Washington ends the year 38-2.   After winning game one, the Eagles dropped games two and three behind an offensive assault from Washington. But the Eagles found the answers in games four and five, rallying late in game four and then pulling ahead early in game five to earn the win by scores of 30-27, 20-30, 22-30, 30-27, 15-10.   “Washington is just a wonderful team,” Juniata College Head Coach Larry Bock said. “We’re very fortunate to have won a great match against a wonderful team.”   Juniata was led offensively by seniors Stephanie Kines and Rachael Schatz, along with sophomore Amber Thomas. Kines knocked out a career-high 26 kills in her final collegiate match while hitting .412. Her efforts earned her a spot on the NCAA Division III All-Tournament team. Thomas produced 25 kills for Juniata along with 14 digs, as was selected as the Most Outstanding Player of the tournament. Schatz knocked out 21 kills while adding 12 digs in her final contest.   Despite producing just four blocks as a team in the match, and getting outblocked 18-4 by the Bears, Juniata’s offense carried the day. The Eagles pounded out 90 kills in the contest to help overcome a efficient Washington offense that produced 73 kills and hit .312 as a team. Beth Kozak passed out a career-high 75 assists in the match and added 13 digs en route to earning All-Tournament Team recognition.   Juniata turned the momentum of the match midway through game four, and carried that into the decisive fifth game. Trailing 24-20 in game four after a kill from Nikki Morrison, Juniata went on a 4-1 run to pull within one spurred by two kills from Schatz. Strong serving from Kozak sparked another run with a kill from Kines giving

Two more kills from Kines and Schatz followed by an ace from Kozak made it 13-8 before Washington responded with a kill from Emilie Walk and a double block from Walk and Haleigh Spencer to tighten the game.
