Head Coach/ Player Profiles Jocelyn Davis

2009-10 Long Island University Women’s Bowling

Head Coach•Second Season Fairleigh Dickinson, 2006

Jocelyn Davis became Long Island University’s first coach when she assumed the reins of the program on July 18, 2008. A tireless worker, Davis has set out to transform LIU into a strong team. “LIU has a long history of athletic and academic success in the Northeast Conference and the Northeast,” Davis said. “I hope to continue that success and our program competitive nationally.” In her first season at the helm of the program, Davis guided an inexperienced roster to a respectable campaign. The Blackbirds were awarded the NEC Team Sportsmanship Award and Amy Johnson and Analda Clement earned academic recognition following the season. The Davis File Davis holds a Bronze Level coaching certification from the United States Bowling Congress and was 2008-09 Long Island 1 ...........9-86 (0-18 NEC) a four-year letterwinner on the Fairleigh Dickinson Totals (one season) .... 9-86 (0-18 NEC) University women’s bowling squad from 2002-06. 1 - NEC Team Sportsmanship Award She captained the 2006 NCAA Championship squad and led the Knights to consecutive NCAA Final Four appearances in 2004 and 2005. Davis also led the team to a No. 17 national ranking during the squad’s inaugural season. Davis holds the FDU record for highest single-tournament average with a 239 and bowled a 300 game during the final Eastern Intercollegiate Bowling Conference meet of 2003. She was twice tabbed a Second Team All-Conference selection and earned National Tenpin Coaches Association Second Team All-Region recognition on two occasions. She was also a four-time academic All-American and was the Valley National Bank Student-Athlete of the Year in 2005 and 2006. Davis earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Fairleigh Dickinson in 2006, graduating Summa Cum Laude. She earned her master’s in education in 2007 from FDU.

Season Outlook Heading into the program’s second season head coach Jocelyn Davis has the Long Island University women’s bowling team poised to continue its ascent to compete for a spot among the Northeast Conference’s top squads. With a more experienced lineup and a group of talented newcomers Davis and the Blackbirds have their sights set on bigger goals in 2009-10. “During our first season, the focus was on establishing team norms and teaching the basics to new players and getting accustomed to being a Division I program,” Davis said. “This season, our focus has turned to taking players to a higher skill level quickly because our attention can be towards mechanical and athletic development.” Among the returnees are senior Revay Corbett, juniors Rondha Remy and Analda Clement and sophomore Jhoanna Santaromana. In their first season of competition, the quartet posted an improvement of over 1,000 pins between the first two NEC meets, which is a testament to their hard work. “Despite their initial inexperience, our four returnees displayed a remarkable amount of dedication, resiliency and an intense desire to become the best,” Davis said. “Although many of them had never competed in the sport they were able to improve greatly because of their competitive spirit.” With freshmen Essanna Gray and Mariah Hatfield joining the team, Davis and the rest of the Blackbirds have high hopes for the season. “These two young women are going to have an immediate impact on the lanes,” Davis said. “Both have experience competing at a high level and that will help motivate the entire team to be the best they can on the lanes. In addition to being outstanding athletes, they both graduated in the top 10 of their classes academically and are the complete package as student-athletes.” Long Island Blackbirds • 2009-10 Women’s Bowling • www.liuathletics.com

Though the NEC has featured various looks since its inception, charter members Fairleigh Dickinson, Long Island, Robert Morris, St. Francis (N.Y.), Saint Francis (Pa.) and Wagner remain part of the current 12-school alignment. They are joined by Monmouth (admitted in 1985), Mount St. Mary’s (1989), Central Connecticut State (1997), Quinnipiac (1998) and Sacred Heart (1999). NEC expansion continues with the addition of Bryant University in 2012 as the league’s 12th member, which will give the league a six-state geographic footprint with access to such major media markets as New York City, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Hartford and Providence. NEC member institutions now compete in 22 championship sports: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, women’s bowling, men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, football, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, women’s swimming, men’s and women’s tennis, and women’s volleyball.

2009-10 Long Island University Women’s Bowling

By providing opportunities for student-athletes to achieve their fullest potential both in athletic competition and in the classroom, the Northeast Conference (NEC) has charted a course of steady growth since its inception in 1981. Now in its 29th year of service, the NEC’s new Strategic Plan has established a blueprint for the future as the Conference strives toward becoming an NCAA Division I leader for athletic success, academic achievement and integrity, sportsmanship, equity and diversity, community partnership and national engagement. The NEC can trace its roots back to 1981, when the league was first established as the men’s basketball-only ECAC-Metro Conference. A single-sport entity at its inception, even the league’s most ardent supporters during its formative years could not have envisioned a transformation into a burgeoning 12-member, 22-sport conference. The remarkable success story of the conference began to unfold in 1985, when the league began sponsoring additional sports. Three years later, a change of name was in order and the Northeast Conference as we know it today was born. With membership and sport sponsorship continuing to grow over the next decade and beyond, the NEC now enjoys qualification or playin access to 13 different NCAA Championships

University Administration Dr. David Steinberg President Long Island University Dr. David Steinberg, the ninth president of Long Island University, was appointed April 1, 1985. During his tenure, the University has experienced a renaissance becoming one of the largest and most comprehensive private universities in the United States. Under his leadership, the University’s endowment has increased nearly tenfold from $4.8 million to over $80 million, and its enrollment has risen from 19,000 to over 28,500. He has spearheaded a capital improvement plan, which has led to $400 million in investments in new construction and major renovations, resulting in vast improvements in the quality of study and life on each of the University’s campuses, especially, the C.W. Post and Brooklyn Campuses. New doctoral programs have been added and operating reserves have been created and increased. Born in New York City, Dr. Steinberg, is the son of the late Rabbi Milton Steinberg of Manhattan’s Park Avenue Synagogue. He was educated at Phillips Academy at Andover, Malvern College in England, and Harvard College, from which he graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. After a Fulbright year at the University of the Philippines and a year at Columbia University on a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship, he returned to Harvard, where he received both a master’s in East Asian Studies (1963) and a Ph.D. in History (1964). Dr. Steinberg also has received several honorary degrees. He began his teaching career in the Department of History at the University of Michigan, where he rose to the rank of full professor. In 1973, he joined the administration of Brandeis University as Executive Assistant to the President, becoming Vice President and University Secretary in 1977. The author of numerous books and articles on Southeast Asia and, in particular, Philippine history, Steinberg has taught, lectured and written about this important area of the world for four decades. His first book, “Philippine Collaboration in World War II,” won the University Press Award in 1969. “The Philippines: A Singular and a Plural Place,” now in its fourth edition, was described by U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines, Nicholas Platt, as “the best single-volume guide to understanding the Philippines, past and present.” Dr. Steinberg also edited and co-authored both editions of “In Search of Southeast Asia,” one of the major textbooks on the area. He recently collaborated with top scholars from around the world to co-author “The Emergence of Modern Southeast Asia,” a new and multifaceted history of this complex region. He is a co-author of “Religion and Religiosity in the Philippines and Indonesia: Essays on State, Society and Public Creeds,” 2005.

Provost Long Island University Brooklyn Campus “I am a big dreamer,” says Gale Stevens Haynes, Provost of Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus and an exemplary educator, lawyer and role model. “If you don’t dream, nothing ever changes.” As head of a doctoral-granting institution, Provost Haynes has achieved many of her dreams both as an educator and a parent. Today, she oversees one of the most diverse campuses in the country, with more than 11,000 students, managing an annual budget of over $160 million. Provost Haynes has led her institution through a remarkable renaissance: doubling student enrollment, creating new facilities, diversifying faculty, forging strong links with the community and transforming the Campus into a vibrant academic center. One of the Provost’s visions, a modern performing arts center that serves the students and the community, became a reality in 2005. The centerpiece of the new complex is the technically advanced, 320-seat Kumble Theater for the Performing Arts, where exciting dance, music and theater performances – from opera and gospel to Dreamgirls and the Nutcracker – regularly draw standing-room-only crowds. In 2006, under the Provost’s leadership, the Campus completed the biggest building project in its history: the $45 million Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center. With state-of-the-art fitness and aquatic facilities for students and other members of the Campus, the WRAC also features an outstanding, 2,500-seat venue, open to the public for athletic and civic events. Its Harriet Rothkopf Heilbrunn B’32 Academic Nursing Center offers an extensive array of free preventive health services as well as a home for Brooklyn’s first outreach and education office for the many people affected by lupus, all in service to the entire community. A wider array of wellness services are being developed that will include a special cluster of intervention programs addressing asthma and lead poisoning in children. The Provost also has overseen a dramatic re-landscaping that has tripled the green space for the central part of this urban campus, with native plants and amenities that provide a serene environment and enhanced college experience for students. Involved in higher education for three decades, Provost Haynes began her association with the Brooklyn Campus as a student, earning a bachelor’s degree in English and a master’s degree in counseling. She started her career as director of the Higher Education Opportunity Program. Upon completing her law degree at St. John’s University in 1983, she became Long Island University’s legal counsel before assuming the position of Provost in 1989. A Queens, N.Y., native, Provost Haynes grew up with a love of books and the spoken word, which she attributes to her West Indian heritage. She has passed on that love of learning to her three daughters – a doctor, a lawyer and an educator – whom she raised as a divorced single parent. “Parenting is a training ground for being a good CEO,” maintains the provost, who now has two grandchildren as well. Acting on her belief that a sound education is the key to realizing one’s dreams, Provost Haynes is dedicated to creating an urban campus whose varied pathways help students to realize theirs.

Director of Athletics

John Suarez enters his 13th year as director of athletics at Long Island University, where he has overseen a dramatic growth of the school’s athletic department. During his tenure, Suarez has witnessed a sensational rise in the Blackbirds’ on-field success with 27 Northeast Conference championships and 22 NEC Coach of the Year awards. Under his guidance, Long Island captured its first-ever NEC Women’s Commissioner’s Cup in 2006 and posted its best overall finish in over 20 years with a third-place standing in 2008-09. Academic success has also been a priority in Suarez’s tenure. The department posted its highest cumulative grade-point average in over 20 years of record keeping with a 3.14 mark following the 2008-09 school year. It was the eighth consecutive year that the department’s cumulative GPA was above 3.0. In addition, LIU has been cited with two National Graduation Awards sponsored by USA Today and has had its programs regularly recognized by the NCAA for its Academic Progress Rate scores. Suarez has also spearheaded the department as it has made major improvements to its facilties. The 2006 opening of the Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center culminated a decade of facility improvement at the Brooklyn Campus. The $45 million facility houses as 2,500-seat arena, an NCAA regulation-size swimming pool and a state-of-the-art fitness center. The WRAC also features a wellness center that is geared toward a growing Brooklyn community. The Wellness Center came on the heels of other improvements that included the addition of lights to LIU Field in 1999, FieldTurf in 2001 and bleachers for softball and baseball in 2003. Suarez has also overseen upgrades to the weight room, locker rooms and scoreboards. Suarez’s work is not done, as there are plans to further upgrade to the Blackbirds’ facilities, including an extensive redesign of LIU Field and the addition of a bubble atop the Wellness Center, covering the track and tennis courts. With a keen eye toward the future, Suarez has been mindful of LIU’s past. He helped spearhead the creation of the LIU Athletics Hall of Fame in 2000 with 11 inaugural members, as well as the reestablishment of the Blackbird Club in 2002. Suarez has also continued to make his presence felt outside the downtown Brooklyn campus. He is currently on the national board of officers for the NCAA Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association. He previously served on the NCAA Management Council from 2003-06 and was a member of the Division I Budget Committee from 2004-06. Prior to that, Suarez was on the NCAA Championship Cabinet from 2000-03 and served as chair of the NEC Athletic Directors Committee from 2000-02. Suarez arrived following a three-year stint as athletics director at Mercer County College in Trenton, N.J., which won two national championships and produced 11 regional titles in that span. Eighty percent of the athletes in his time attended four-year schools and every team produced a winning record during his last two years. Suarez earned his bachelor’s degree in marketing at Fairleigh Dickinson University, where he competed on the baseball team. He completed his master’s in sports management at East Stroudsburg University.

2009-10 Long Island University Women’s Bowling

The campus’ athletic training staff is dedicated to the prevention, rehabilitation and recovery needs of over 200 student-athletes for the school’s 18 athletic teams. Headed by three full-time athletic trainers, the staff consists of several graduate and undergraduate trainers who are enrolled in LIU’s renowned athletic training program. Due to the extreme availability of the training program’s resources, LIU’s athletic trainers strive to place great attention and detail on each athlete in order to provide the best care possible. The sports medicine staff prides themselves on not only providing the best injury-specific plan of care, but also ensuring that the athlete’s long-term health goals are met. In the winter of 2005, a state-of-the-art Athletic Training Room opened in the Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center. It is fully equipped with the latest modalities and rehabilitative equipment to ensure the needs of each individual student-athlete are fully met. The new Athletic Training Room allows the LIU sports medicine staff to conduct all short-term and post-operative rehabilitation on-site. The staff also works in conjunction with LIU’s Center for Physical Rehabilitation in order to utilize a HydroWorx therapy pool. The Wellness Center also houses resources and programs to promote the health of community residents. Cardiac rehabilitation, orthopedic therapy and asthma education services are available. In addition to providing treatment and rehabilation, the athletic training staff provides education to student-athletes regarding health matters and concerns to aid students in achieving optimum health and conditioning. Danny O’Connor has directed the sports medicine program since being promoted to head trainer in 2001. O’Connor, who started with LIU as a graduate student in 1994, and is staff are responsible for maintaining the operation of the athletic training room. His office coordinates the medical coverage and the administering of the athletic department’s drug education and testing program. The athletic trainers also schedule appointments with the program’s physician, coordinate preseason physical exams and design treatment and rehabilitation programs. O’Connor and his staff consult regularly with athletic department orthopedic surgeon Dr. Howard Levy, a doctor of orthopedic surgery and sports medicine at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. Levy and a network of medical staff, mostly from Lenox Hill, work closely with LIU athletes to meet their surgical and rehabilitative needs.

The strength and conditioning program at Long Island University is designed to help student-athletes maximize their athletic potential and performance while reducing the risk of injury. Coordinated by Richard James, a former Blackbird and All-American in the 400-meter dash, specialized workout programs are tailored to enhance athletes’ physical abilities in their specific sports, as each sport places different demands on the body. Included in his regimen are weight training, power and speed training, flexibility training, plyometrics and conditioning. James, who represented Jamaica in the 4x400-meter relay at the 2004 Olympics held in Athens and holds a master’s degree in exercise physiology from Long Island, is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and a U.S.A. Weightlifting Performance Specialist. The weight training room is located in the new state-of-the art Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center. The facility houses not only a fitness center equipped with the latest equiment - from stationary bikes with built in televisions to a full weight station - but also a separate weight room geared for student-athletes. There is a full range of equipment to meet the diverse needs of each student-athlete from preseason conditioning to the offseason variety. Treadmills and stationary bikes, free weights and press machines are just some of the pieces of equipment which make it one of the most complete facilities in the NEC.

Academics Nora Mavashev Academic Enhancement Coordinator The balancing of academic achievement and athletic success is the primary concern of LIU’s Department of Athletics. The University’s student-athlete academic services are designed to help the department fulfill its commitment to all student-athletes in their pursuit of academic excellence. At LIU, there is a high priority placed on academic integrity, along with an opportunity to take advantage of extraordinary academic programs. The goal of the LIU Athletic Department is to give student-athletes an avenue to seek help, whether it be for tutorial assistance, scheduling of classes, personal or career development or to improve on their test-taking and time-management skills. In her sixth year, Nora Mavashev is responsible for monitoring academic progress of the student-athletes, ensuring they meet and exceed the University’s academic goals in compliance with NCAA and institutional standards. In conjunction with the director and senior associate director of athletics, Mavashev has formed close relationships with the academic advisement office and counseling center to assist the student-athlete in negotiating the demands of daily practices and games. The athletic department had an overall grade point average of 3.14 during the 2008-09 academic year. Fifteen of the department’s 18 teams posted cumulative averages above 3.00 and 58 percent of the studentathletes had a cumulative GPA above 3.00 and 32 student-athletes with GPAs above 3.50. Over 100 student-athletes were named to the Northeast Conference Academic Honor Roll and the NCAA announced Public Recognition Awards for the academic work of three women’s teams. The women’s bowling team had a pair of student-athletes earn National Ten Pin Coaches Association All-Academic Team honors. The University has twice been recognized by the NCAA and USA Today for having the highest graduation rate in the nation as compared to the remainder of the student body.
