Head Coach Skip Steffey The 2011-12 season is the seventh year for Skip Steffey as head coach of the women’s golf team. He was named the GLVC Coach of the Year in 2008-09. A pair of Flyers, Nicole Tucker and Leila Marquet, were selected as individuals to represent Lewis at the 2011 NCAA East Regional. Marquet tied for the final spot at Nationals but fell short in a playoff hole. Following the season, Marquet earned All-GLVC accolades. As a team the Flyers captured the St. Francis Spring Invitational. The team’s 335.4 season average was the second lowest in school history after the 2007-08 squad. In 2009-10 he helped a starting five featuring four freshmen to a sixth place finish at the GLVC Championship. During the 2008-09 season two Flyers finished in the top 10 at the GLVC Championship. Amy Sachs earned All-GLVC honors while Jamie Siedlaczek missed all-conference accolades by just one stroke, tying for eighth. Sachs was then selected to compete as an individual in the Super Regional. Siedlaczek, who won Lewis’ first women’s golfer of the month award in October of 2008, took home a special Lewis honor at the end of the school year. She was earned Lewis’ Female Senior Student-Athlete Award. The annual honor goes to the student-athlete with the best overall gradepoint average. “I hope to continue to create a team atmosphere that is both competitive and family-like,” said Steffey, a member of the National Golf Coaches Association. “I believe Lewis can draw outstanding student athletes and compete for conference and national titles in a short period of time. “Our goal is to field a highly competitive team of outstanding students who enjoy the competition that Division II golf can present, while still focusing on academics.” In 1971, Steffey earned a bachelor’s degree in physical education (English minor) and K-12 teaching accreditation at Texas Christian University. He was a member of the golf team, dormitory council president in 1970 and a graduate assistant golf instructor in 1971. Steffey continues to play competitive amateur golf and has made numerous appearances in the Illinois State Amateur Championship. A resident of Mokena, Steffey is a part-time Senior Loan Officer for Wintrust Mortgage Company. His wife, Karen is a Lewis graduate who played two seasons for the Flyers’ women’s golf team and was a two-time Academic All-GLVC selection. She is a Reading Specialist at Liberty Junior High for District 111 in Burbank, Ill. The Steffeys are parents of a son, Tres, and a daughter Kim. Tres is a 2004 sport management graduate of Lewis where he played four years on the Flyers’ men’s golf team and twice earned All-American Scholar recognition from the Golf Coaches Association of America. He is a practicing attorney working in real estate tax reduction. Kim is a 2006 graduate of Western Illinois University where she was a Summa Cum Laude graduate in exercise science and kinesiology. She is a co-owner and instructor/coach at Gym Kinetics Gymnastics located in Mokena, Ill.
2011-12 Lewis Women’s Golf
2011-12 Spring Season Preview Following a 2011 spring campaign that saw Leila Marquet and Nicole Tucker selected to the NCAA East Regional as individuals, the Flyers enter the 2012 spring season looking to earn a berth in the NCAA Tournament as a team. Lewis opens the season with the Shootout in Arizona played at Aguila Golf Course in Phoenix where the Flyers finished second last year. “I know the ladies like the course and have played well in Arizona in the past,” Lewis head coach Skip Steffey said. “I think this is a great place for us to build some early momentum with a victory or another high finish.” Marquet and Tucker will get a good look from the selection committee individually, but the strength of the team this year is in the depth that has given the team more consistent scores. Juniors Carly Shapiro and Vanessa Phillips each recorded fall semester averages lower than their career totals. Shapiro averaged 84.0 and Phillips 82.0 in the fall after both entered the year with a career 88 average. “Carly and Vanessa should feel confident heading into the spring thanks to the fall season,” Steffey said. Lewis will also lean on contributions from sophomore Danielle Coffman and freshman Breanne Fredette. Coffmann’s low round in the fall was an 80 against Division I competition in the Green Bay Fall Invitational on Sept. 13. Fredette turned in a 79 in the first round of the same tournament. “Danielle and Breanne gave us a lift with solid play last fall and should continue to produce this spring,” Steffey said. When the Flyers return from Arizona they will travel to Northern Kentucky for a crucial regional clash at Perry Park featuring all the top teams in the East region. They will follow up NKU’s tournament with a stop at IPFW in Ft. Wayne, Ind. It will be Lewis’ second Division I tournament of the year. The competition doesn’t get any easier for the Flyers as up next is a strong Division II field at the Triton Invitational at Oak Terrace Resort in Pana, Ill. The tournament features nationally ranked No. 5 Grand Valley State and No. 19 Drury. After the Triton Invitational it’s on to Heartland Crossings for the Greyhound Invitational where Division II top-20 teams California-PA (13), Indianapolis (18) and Drury (19) will further test the depth of the Flyers. Lewis travels to Annbriar Golf Course in Waterloo, Ill. to compete for the 2012 Great Lakes Valley Conference Championship during the last weekend in April. The hope is a challenging spring schedule with several nationally and regionally ranked opponents will culminate with a solid performance at Annbriar and a berth in the NCAA East Regional in early May. “I really believe this team has what it takes to make the NCAA East Regional and potentially go to the National Finals, we are very solid one through six and that gives us some wonderful versatility to play the hottest five and not lose a thing,” Steffey said. “They’ve really stepped up their game this year and I am excited to see how we do with this very intense and challenging schedule.”

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
What Schumacher is most proud of, however, is the performance of his student-athletes in the classroom. In the past four 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 eight new head coaches, including women’s volleyball coach Lorelee Smith, who has won three GLVC regular season and tournament championships and has lost just 22 matches in only four seasons. 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 19982002. 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. He is currently pursuing his Doctorate in education at Lewis. 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 (16) and sons Jack (13) and Declan (9).
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 the 2010-11 Great Lakes Valley Conference All-Sports Trophy, seven regular-season GLVC championships and 12 GLVC Tournament championships, while making appearances in 16 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 $5,000,000 worth of facility upgrades on the Romeoville campus. Schumacher helped speed up the facility upgrade timeline by forming the Varsity Club, an organized, 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, new roof, air conditioning, scoreboards, a video board, island baskets and retractable bleachers which has increased the seating capacity. The locker rooms in Neil Carey Arena have been remodeled and are now equipped with flat screen televisions and new open-air stadium lockers. 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 brought Lewis Athletics to the television airwaves, as the Flyers are in their fourth-year of airing Flyer contests on Lakeshore Public Television. Lakeshore can been seen in up to 3.5 million households in both the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana suburbs. Schumacher’s biggest accomplishment - however - is the completion of the Lewis University MultiPurpose Athletics Complex in September of 2011. The complex features a multi-purpose field and NCAA-certified, nine-lane competition track. The multi-purpose field and track, which will be lighted, can be used for a variety of different sports, including track, soccer, football and lacrosse and many of our intramural and club sports. The facility will offer future stadium bleacher seating available up to 5,000 fans, including a state of the art scoreboard. Both the men’s and women’s swimming teams have directly benefitted from Schumacher’s efforts, as the Lewis Swimming Pool now has a stateof-the-art scoring system which has allowed the program to increase its home schedule. 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 video scoreboards, which are slated to be finished by the 2012 season.
