Head Coach Skip Steffey In June of 2009 Skip Steffey was named the head men’s golf coach in addition to his duties as head women’s golf coach. In the fall of 2010, sophomore Brandon White was victorious in the Phoenix Fall Classic defeating two other opponents in a playoff hole as the team saw three top-ten finishes out of four events. During Steffey’s first season as men’s golf coach in 2009-10 the Flyers won the St. Joseph’s Players Championship, St. Francis Fall Classic and Lewis Mixed Fall Classic. Junior Casey Pyne finished second among 93 golfers at the NCAA Division II Preview on Sept. 28-29. Pyne was just one shot off the lead. The Spring began with another victory, this time in the Shootout at Aguila. Lewis finished seventh at the GLVC Championship. Senior Paul Dagys was selected to the participate as an individual in the Midwest/South Central Regional. Pyne earned All-GLVC honors. Steffey, who has six years at Lewis as the women’s golf head coach, was named the 2008-09 GLVC Women’s Golf Coach of the Year. During the 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 earned Lewis’ Female Senior Student-Athlete Award. The annual honor goes to the student-athlete with the best overall gradepoint average. 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. A resident of Mokena, Steffey and his wife, Karen, who is a 1997 Lewis graduate and played two seasons for the Flyer women’s golf team and was a two-time Academic All-GLVC selection. She is a reading specialist at Liberty Junior High School in Burbank. 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 coowner and instructor/coach at Gym Kinetics Gymnastics located in Mokena, Ill. 3 2010-11 2 20 010 10-1 0--1 11 Lewi Le Lewis ewi w s Me M Men’s en en n’’s Go Golff Golf


2011 Season Preview Spring is in the air for the Lewis University men’s golf squad and second year head coach Skip Steffey will look to his upperclassmen to improve on the team’s seventh place finish at the GLVC Tournament in 2010. “We expect to compete for the conference championship in April at Panther Creek in Springfield,” Steffey said. “We have the players to win if they all work hard and play to their potential. “The key will be avoiding mistakes and having the more experienced players step-up and contribute in a big way.” The Flyers finished the 2010 fall season with three top-ten finishes as a team and carry those successes into the spring. “We need to compete at the highest levels this spring in order to have a chance to qualify for the NCAA Super Regionals in May,” Steffey added. “The team will need a couple of top-five finishes in the two spring regionals at Cherry Blossom in Kentucky (April 2-3) and at Purgatory in Indiana (April 10-11) to make the Super Regionals.” This season, Lewis will be competing without Paul Dagys who graduated last spring and Steffey knows that his leadership both on and off the course is not easy to replace. “Paul was very consistent in regional play last season and is a tough player to replace,” “But Brandon (White) has stepped up and played well and of course I would expect Casey (Pyne) to continue his solid play and finish the season as a NCAA qualifier individually even if the team does not qualify.” The Flyers will look to seniors Casey Pyne and Logan Watts to step-up and contribute. Pyne, a 2010 All-Conference selection, averaged a team-best 75.0 in the fall season with a pair of top-ten finishes. The Bloomington, Ill. native was also named an All-American Scholar for his efforts in the classroom. For the 2010-11 season he has been named a team captain. “Casey is our leader being an All-Conference player and our scoring average leader for the last two seasons,” Steffey said. “I expect him to be an AllConference performer again this year and qualify for the NCAA Tournament later this spring.” Watts was third on the team in scoring in the fall with a 78.2 average per round with a top-five and a top-ten finish. “This is Logan’s last shot, so I would expect him to do everything it takes to play his best this spring,” Steffey added. “He has shown he has the game, he just needs to turn it on this spring to finish a solid career at Lewis.” Following the seniors is sophomore Brandon White who Steffey will look to for leadership even as an underclassman. White took first place at the Green Bay Invitational last September on a playoff hole. He also earned a second top-ten finish at the Prairie Stars Shootout. “Brandon is showing the ability we knew he had when he was recruited-a very consistent player and a hard worker,” Steffey continued. “I expect him to be a great contributor to the team’s success the entire spring season.” Also looking to make an impact are juniors Nick Quagliano and Maxwell Capouch. Quagliano and Capouch each competed in two rounds in the fall and averaged an 82.5 and 86.0, respectively. “Nick could be a solid contributor if he can find the game that abandoned him in the fall,” Steffey said. “He proved last year he can compete at the highest levels, so I am sure he will step-up this spring. “Max joined us this year after sitting out of competition for the last two years and once he has his short game in control he could be a solid contributor. He is a wonderful ball striker who just needs the competitive experience to rise to the challenge.” Along with White in the sophomore class, Mark Bermele could make a significant in the Lewis line-up as the Evergreen Park, Ill. native averaged 80.9 in seven rounds last fall. “Mark is just about ready to have a break-out season,” Steffey continued. “He has refined his game and seems to have the confidence it takes to play at a high level and I would expect him to be a significant part of the team’s success this spring.” Leading the freshman class, Kyle Mulcahy and Thomas Hearden saw significant time in the fall season as Mulcahy competed in all nine rounds and Hearden played in seven. Mulcahy averaged 81.3 which was fifth on the team and Hearden was seventh at 81.7. “Both Kyle and Tommy stepped up for us last fall and played some very solid rounds while a couple of our veteran player were struggling,” Steffey said. “I am confident they will both continue to challenge for playing time and factor heavily in our success this spring.” Rounding out the roster for Lewis are freshman Dan Petrarca, Tanner Panozzo, E.J. Luna and Alex Fried. All four competed in two events and will look for some playing time this fall. “These freshmen have all shown flashes of excellent play, but are not quite consistent enough to break into the starting five,” Steffey added. “With continued hard work and some adjustments in course management any of the four could contribute this year.” 2010-11 2 10-1 20 10 0--1 11 Le LLewis wis Me wis wi M Men’s n’s Golf n’s n’ Go olff

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 17 members, has fully embraced NCAA Division II and is now the largest athletic conference in the country in any division. 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 formation of the GLVC can be traced as far back as 1972 when the athletic directors of three member schools - Kentucky Wesleyan, Bellarmine and Indiana State University at Evansville (now the University of Southern Indiana) - began preliminary discussions about forming a basketball conference. Four years later, the University of Indianapolis and Saint Joseph’s College expressed interest. On July 7, 1978, those schools - along with Ashland University - united to become the GLVC. Since its inception, 15 different institutions have joined the league. Those members include: Lewis University (1980), Indiana-Purdue at Fort Wayne (1984), Northern Kentucky University (1985), Kentucky State University (1989), Quincy University (1994), Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (1994), University of Wisconsin-Parkside (1994), University of Missouri-St. Louis (1995), Drury (2005), Missouri S&T (2005), Rockhurst (2005), University of Illinois-Springfield (2008), Maryville University (2008), William Jewell College (2009) and McKendree University (2010). Ashland and Kentucky State left the conference after the 1994 season, IPFW left the league following the 2000-01 academic year and SIU Edwardsville exited the league following the 2007-08 academic year. These departures opened the door for the seven-team expansion over the past decade, allowing the league to grow to its current membership of 17 institutions. The conference headquarters are located in downtown Indianapolis, one of the many major Midwest 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 which will begin 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 firstever 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 school and GLVC’s first national championship in baseball in 2010. The league also takes pride in recognizing the many academic and athletic accomplishments achieved by its student-athletes, coaches and administrators. In 2001, the league announced the creation of the GLVC Hall of Fame, with the first class being inducted in 2002. The GLVC annually presents the Richard F. Scharf Paragon Award to the top male and female student-athlete in the league, and the Dr. Charles Bertram Alumni Award of Distinction to alumni who both succeeded while a GLVC student-athlete and excelled in accomplishments after graduation. The GLVC strives to adhere to the NCAA Division II Strategic Platform and has introduced several initiatives in recent years including the GLVC Sportsmanship Award which acknowledges the institution that exemplifies sportsmanship in the view of its peers. The league continually maintains an effort to combine academic and athletic excellence and the hard work put forth by the studentathletes has been evident on the playing fields and in the classrooms.

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).
