Assistant Coach 1st Season

alex

aguirre

Alex Aguirre begins his first season as assistant coach for the women’s volleyball team. Aguirre is a 2008 graduate of Joliet Central Township High School where he played volleyball all two years as well as for the Sports Performance Volleyball Club. His duties will include daily organization of practice and other team activities. Aguirre is currently a biology major with a minor in business administration. He intends to pursue a career in physical therapy upon graduation from Lewis.

Season Preview When one door closes, another opens. That’s the hope for the Lewis women’s volleyball team in 2010. AVCA AllAmerican, GLVC Player of the Year and Lewis’ career kills leader Stephanie Sagat is now a former Flyer. Her graduation, along with three other all-conference performers, means 53 percent of the team’s 1,810 kills last year came from players no longer with the team in 2010. However it’s not statistics that head coach Lorelee Smith is looking to find on the 2010 squad. It’s finding the player, or players, she can count on in the final points of a set. Considering the out-going class was 18-7 in five-set matches during their careers, Smith had a group she knew could finish in big matches. “We’re going to have to figure out who we go to in tight, end game situations,” Smith said. “I don’t think it is something you can simulate in practice. We will need to figure out our go-to players on the court in those tight situations.” While Smith will admit she is unsure how starting roles will shakeout, she feels good about the setting position, specifically 2009 AVCA All-America Honorable Mention selection senior Rachel Ruedi. “I’m very impressed with Rachel’s focus and work ethic heading into the season,” Smith said. “She’s in this to help the team go as far as possible.” The challenge for Ruedi in her senior season will be meshing with the new hitters she will be setting. “With the changes I think Rachel’s positive attitude is going to be important,” Smith said. “The instant/easy results might not always be there this year, but I don’t think it will bother her. I think she’s looking forward to learning how to set each hitter and the test that comes with it.” Senior Lauren Seliga and junior Colleen Mitros look like the favorites at the outside hitter positions. The versatile Seliga averaged 2.38 kills and 3.12 digs per set last year. Mitros averaged 2.19 kills. “Lauren has come back better than ever,” Smith said. “Offensively, defensively and even verbally she has stepped up as a leader. She’s really worked hard to bring the newcomers on the same page. That’s something that can extend far beyond this season.” As for Mitros, 2010 has the potential to be a breakout season. “Colleen got into beach (volleyball) this summer and increased her vertical quite a bit,” Smith said. “Skill wise and athletically she could be a dominant player in the region.” Defensively the Flyers will look for a replacement for AVCA All-Region libero Ashlee Lindish. The favorite looks to be senior Kelly McConkey. Though she arrived at Lewis as an outside hitter, last season McConkey shined as one of Lewis’

best defensive players. She recorded 300 digs and notched 10 or more in 11 matches. “Kelly has been super positive so far in camp and I think when she’s positive with not just others, but herself, she can be very good,” Smith said. “Her communication and ability to play as a teammate are huge assets.” The Flyers biggest question position wise looks to be at the middle hitter position. All-conference performers Sara deBuhr and Kim Richards have left the stage. Looking to grab those two spots include senior Danielle Mount, junior Hannah Koeneman, sophomore Jillian Carlberg and sophomore Carly Perschnick. Mount redshirted last year, but more than showed her upside in 2008, earning a GLVC Player of the Week Award. She holds a career .325 attack percentage. “I think the redshirt year was really good for Danielle,” Smith said. “As a sophomore she played above the net, but now I think she’s a much smarter player. She can make a set that isn’t quite perfect into a kill. She’s opened her offensive window by just becoming a smarter player.” Perschnick comes in as a decorated transfer. The sophomore was named an AVCA All-American Honorable Mention last season at Nova Southeastern. She is one of two transfers in 2010. Outside hitter Jen Krumwiede arrives at Lewis after a season at IPFW. “Carly and Jen will help us change our offense this year,” Smith said. “Transfers help bring variety because they’ve played under different styles of offense. They both have a powerful swing, jump really well and are very aggressive.” 2010 marks first time under Smith Lewis isn’t the defending GLVC Champions. Lewis finished No. 9 in the nation and went 14-0 in conference play last year, but had their conference tournament and NCAA regional runs stopped short by rival Indianapolis both times. While an early season date with Indianapolis awaits on Sept. 18 at Neil Carey Arena, the Flyers face quality competition out of the gates with tournaments in Florida and Colorado. The tough schedules means Lewis will need to find chemistry quickly. “We need to make it through our first nine matches feeling good about ourselves,” Smith said. “We need to find our weaknesses during the start of the year and set a goal of being at our best by the end of the season.” The Flyers hope playing their best at the end of the season includes a fifth consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament. Lewis’s streak of four is currently the longest streak in the GLVC. The stretch also includes two trips to the Sweet 16. “This team has the ability to put it all together, but we’ll need a mental push to get past regionals,” Smith said.

* Qualified for the GLVC Tournament


Neil Carey arena Lewis holds a 58-3 record at Neil Carey Arena over the last four seasons. The stretch includes a 41 match home win streak from 2007-2009. The streak ranks 11th all-time in Division II history. Recent upgrades to Neil Carey Arena include new lockers, a new scoreboard with color matrix display, a new scorers table with digital display, expanded seating on the west side, new bleachers with backs on the east side and the Varsity Club Suite. Lewis hosted the GLVC Tournament in 2009 for the second consecutive season.

The Great Lakes Valley Conference Established in 1978 with a commitment to the purposes, fundamental policies and basic principles of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC) has grown to embody the vision established by the founders of the organization and has melded athletic and academic excellence for 32 years. The GLVC, which over the past decade has grown to 16 members, has fully embraced NCAA Division II and is now one of the largest conferences in the country. Although formed and developed as one of the nation’s premier basketball conferences, the GLVC has nurtured 17 championship sports and can now claim itself as one of the nation’s top NCAA Division II conferences. The conference headquarters are located in downtown Indianapolis, one of the many Midwest major media markets in which the league maintains a presence. The GLVC has schools in Milwaukee/Northern Illinois (UW-Parkside), Chicago (Lewis), Indianapolis (Indianapolis), Cincinnati (Northern Kentucky), Louisville (Bellarmine), Evansville (Southern Indiana), Springfield, Ill. (UIS), Springfield, Mo. (Drury), Owensboro (Kentucky Wesleyan), Kansas City (Rockhurst, William Jewell) and St. Louis (Maryville, UM-St. Louis). The conference sponsors 17 championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, indoor and outdoor track and field, and tennis for men and basketball, cross country, softball, soccer, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field, golf, and volleyball for women. In addition, the GLVC has also recently announced a timeline for sponsoring football in the conference with a goal of beginning play in 2012. GLVC institutions have won 11 national championships in basketball. Kentucky Wesleyan leads all Division II institutions with eight men’s basketball titles, while Southern Indiana won the men’s crown in 1995. Northern Kentucky’s women won the school’s first-ever basketball national championship in 2000 and followed that with a national title in 2008. In addition, SIU Edwardsville became the first GLVC member to win a national championship in softball in 2007 and Southern Indiana staked claim to the GLVC’s first national championship in baseball in 2010.

HISTORY

Founded in 1932 under the direction of the Chicago Archdiocese and Bishop Bernard J. Sheil, Lewis began as the Holy Name Technical School, a school for boys and was established on 170 acres of farmland donated by Michael and Frances Fitzpatrick of Lockport. Aviation technology became the special emphasis of instruction and the origin of today’s highly regarded Department of Aviation and Transportation Studies. During World War II, hundreds of Navy flight instructors were trained at Lewis. In 1952, the school

was renamed the Lewis College of Science and Technology and granted its first baccalaureate degrees. In 1960, the De La Salle Christian Brothers - members of a 328-year-old religious order devoted exclusively to teaching and named after Saint John Baptist de La Salle, their founder and Patron Saint of Educators – assumed direction of the institution. Today, with growing enrollment, outstanding programs, experienced faculty and motivated students, Lewis University is recognized as one of the finest, mid-sized, comprehensive Catholic universities in the country.

LEWIS UNIVERSITY ATHLETICS DIRECTOR DAN SCHUMACHER When Dan Schumacher was hired as Lewis University’s Director of Athletics in June of 2006, the Chicago native knew the heights that the Flyers Athletics program could reach as a department. With great vision comes great expectations, and Schumacher and the Flyers have most certainly delivered. Since his arrival, Lewis has won five regular-season Great Lakes Valley Conference championships and nine GLVC Tournament championships, while making appearances in 12 NCAA Tournaments, including the men’s soccer team’s run to the ‘Final Four’ in 2009. While the Flyers have made improvements on the field, the fields have also been improved during Schumacher’s tenure, as there has been over $500,000 worth of facility upgrades on the Romeoville campus. Schumacher helped speed up the facility upgrade timeline by forming the Varsity Club, an organized,

www.LewisFlyers.com

non-profit fundraising arm of the Lewis University Athletic Department that supports small-scale capital improvements. Neil Carey Arena, home of both basketball and volleyball teams, has seen the most upgrades as it now features a new floor, scoreboards, a video board, island baskets and retractable bleachers which has increased the seating to over 1,000. Both the men’s and women’s swimming teams have directly benefitted from Schumacher’s efforts, as the Lewis Swimming Pool now has a state-of-the-art scoring system which has allowed the program to increase its home schedule. The locker rooms in Neil Carey Arena have been remodeled and are now equipped with flat screen televisions. Lewis now has the ability to video stream all of their home basketball games and volleyball matches from the Arena on www.LewisFlyers.com. Schumacher has also helped make the John F. Kennedy Sports Center become more ‘Flyer Friendly’, as the hallways proudly display Lewis Athletics Artwork and each office has furniture that has the Lewis Flyers Athletics logo emblazoned on it. The Athletic Training room has been remodeled and now holds custom tables, cabinets, flooring and an ice machine. Outside the JFK Sports Center, the Lewis softball team now has new dugouts, a new press box and a custom windscreen for the outfield fence, while the outfield fence of Brennan Field, home of the Flyer baseball team, now has a custom windscreen as well. On the docket for both fields are brand new Daktronics scoreboards, which are slated to be finished by the 2011 season. What Schumacher is most proud of, however, is the performance of his student-athletes in the classroom. In the past three years, the graduation rate for Lewis student-athletes has risen from 60% to as high as 86%, while the Flyers’ Academic Success Rate (ASR) has peaked at a remarkable 98%, Schumacher has brought along seven new head

coaches, including women’s volleyball coach Lorelee Smith and men’s basketball coach Scott Trost. Smith has won two Great Lakes Valley Conference regular season championships, along with two GLVC Tournament championships while losing just 17 matches in three seasons. In his second season as the head coach, Trost led the Flyers to 20 wins for just the 14th time in school history, as well as an appearance in the GLVC Tournament finals and a berth in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2004. A 1986 Carl Sandburg High School graduate, Schumacher was responsible for the financial administration of Winona State athletics. Among his duties were marketing and promotions, development, external relations, corporate relations, facilities oversight, budgeting and NCAA compliance. Schumacher was the primary catalyst of a two-year campaign that generated $3 million, through private donations and newly developed athletics department revenue channels, for major improvements to Winona State’s soccer, football, baseball, softball and basketball facilities. He also spearheaded a project that transformed a $42,000 annual corporate sponsorship program into an annual corporate/external relations program that generates $500,000 in scholarships for Winona State athletics and the WSU Foundation. Schumacher spent seven years with Conseco Finance Corporation prior to joining the Winona State staff, serving as Senior Credit Manager from 1995-98 and as Vice President from 1998-2002. He was a Branch Manager for TCF Bank and Mortgage Corporation in Minneapolis from 1990-95. Schumacher earned a bachelor’s degree in public relations (business administration minor) in 1989 and a master’s degree in educational/school administration in 2005, both at Winona State. As a member of the WSU football team, he garnered All-America honors and served two seasons as a team captain. Schumacher and wife Kristin are the parents of daughter Kasey (15) and sons Jack (12) and Declan (8).
