Head Coach

Heather Levins Head Coach• •Second Season Connecticut, 2003

Heather Levins is set to begin her second season as head coach of the Long Island University women’s lacrosse program. After helping the program make strides in her first season, she has her sights set on helping LIU earn its first NEC Tournament berth. Levins is in her third season overall with the Blackbirds having served as an assistant coach during the 2008 season. “The work ethic from our captains has had a domino effect on the rest of the team to follow in their footsteps,” Levins said. “The team has as a common goal to make this season different from previous seasons and we all want to work as hard as possible to reach the Northeast Conference Tournament.” In her first season at the helm of the Blackbirds, Levins guided a squad that featured just one senior on the roster. Levins led the young LIU team through its growing pains and improved the squad’s win total while developing a team that scored nearly three more goals per game than the year before. With the same coaching staff and nearly the entire roster returning for her second season, Levins and the Blackbirds have the program headed in the right direction. “I could not be happier to have Kim Hillier and Amy Rizzo on board,” Levins said of her staff. “The chemistry between the three of us is incredible and we are all on the same page with what we want to accomplish in practice and for the program.” Prior to taking over the head coaching job, Levins served for a year as assistant coach and had a hand in all aspects of the program. She also has experience as a coach in the club, high school and collegiate ranks.

“We are delighted to have Heather take over the women’s lacrosse program,” Director of Athletics John Suarez said. “Her enthusiasm and familiarity with the team are positives that will help us continue to build a successful program.” Levins joined the LIU staff after serving as an assistant coach at Bucknell University from 2004-07. At Bucknell, Levins was a recruiting coordinator and assisted in the planning of practices. She also worked as an academic advisor for the team and coordinated game tape exchange.

A native of East Northport, N.Y., Levins is a 2003 graduate of the University of Connecticut with a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology. While an undergraduate with the Huskies, Levins enjoyed a standout career with the women’s lacrosse team and was named the team’s most valuable player in 2003. Levins ranks among the career leaders at UConn with 97 points on 75 goals and 22 assists. She also collected 143 groundballs, which ranks fifth on the career list.

In addition to her experience at Bucknell, Levins gained coaching experience at the high school and club level. She served as the head junior varsity coach at Harborfields High School in Greenlawn, N.Y., for one season. Along with her duties as the head coach at the JV level, she also assisted the coaching staff at the varsity level during the conference championship tournament. Levins has also worked as an assistant coach for the Long Island Yellow Jackets club team, while working at the Laxology/Increase Camp at Hofstra University and the Bainbridge Elite 100 camp held in Bainbridge Island, Wash.


Assistant Coaches

Kim Hillier Assistant Coach• •Second Season Hofstra, 2007

Kim Hillier will begin her second season with the Long Island University staff as an assistant coach. Hillier joined the LIU staff following a standout playing career at Hofstra University, where she also spent one season as a volunteer assistant coach for the lacrosse team. At Hofstra, Hillier was also a strength and conditioning assistant and was responsible for developing and implementing nutrition and workout plans for six varsity teams, including the women’s lacrosse team. Hillier also assisted in the preparation of the lacrosse team’s practices and warm-ups. “Kim brings so much experience with her as a player at Hofstra and with the U.S. Developmental Team,” head coach Heather Levins said. “Her passion for the game is incredible and it is great to see the positive reaction the team has towards her and the expectations she has for them. Her network in the lacrosse community will help immensely in bringing in great players and building LIU into a competitive program.”

Hillier enjoyed a standout playing career for the Pride as a member of the team from 2004-07. She was just the fourth player in the program’s history to be named a two-time All-American, earning second team honors in 2006 and third team honors in 2007. A four-time IWLCA All-Region selection, she finished her career tied for the all-time mark in assists (82), while ranking second in points (215) and draw controls (143), third in goals (133), fifth in ground balls (120) and ninth in caused turnovers (42). A four-time all-conference selection and the 2004 Colonial Athletic Association Rookie of the Year, Hillier was named to the league’s Silver Anniversary Team in 2010. She helped Hofstra win the 2007 CAA title and advance to its second NCAA Tournament appearance with a team-high 52 points. Hillier was also a member of the U.S. Developmental Squad.

Amy Rizzo Graduate Assistant Coach• •Third Season Long Island, 2007

Amy Rizzo will return for her second season as a full-time graduate assistant coach on the Long Island University staff after serving as a volunteer assistant coach in 2008. Rizzo enjoyed a standout career as a student-athlete at LIU and is the most decorated Blackbird in the program’s history, having competed for the team from 2004-07. “Amy has done so much for the program as both a player and a coach,” head coach Heather Levins said. “She has gained the respect of the entire team as she has handled the transition to coaching with such maturity. Her coaching style displays everything LIU lacrosse is about. Her enthusiasm is awesome and she always wants to help each player achieve their potential.” The school’s all-time leading scorer, Rizzo was a four-time AllNortheast Conference selection, earning first team honors in both 2004 and 2006. Rizzo finished her career with 249 points on 185 goals and 64 assists. A dominating offensive player, she has four of the top five single-season goal scoring totals at LIU. Rizzo was a three-time honoree as the NEC Player of the Week, as well as a Rookie of the Week on one occasion. An NEC Academic Honor Roll member as an undergraduate, Rizzo is currently pursuing her master’s degree in business administration at LIU. She also played for the Blackbirds’ women’s soccer team during the 2007 season.

Hillier is a 2007 graduate of Hofstra with a degree in psychology. A native of Farmingdale, N.Y., Hillier also served as the head coach of the Long Island Elite Yellow Jackets from 2003-08 and was the director of Long Island Hornets Lacrosse from 2003-05.

Season Outlook An experienced Long Island University lacrosse squad will look to take the Blackbirds to their first appearance in the Northeast Conference championship in 2010. With a lineup that returns nine starters and a total of 15 letterwinners, head coach Heather Levins has the program on the cusp of climbing to new heights. Levins will begin her second season in charge of LIU and will be joined by her assistants, Kim Hillier and Amy Rizzo. Captains Jillian Maricondo and Kristina Scheerer will lead an experienced program that is poised to produce a memorable campaign. “Our captains have been great in leading this team,” Levins said. “Our senior class is leaving its mark on the program and laying the foundation for future student-athletes. The team’s dedication and work ethic and off-season training has helped prepare them for the season ahead and the challenges the coaches have put before them.” Attack The Blackbirds will be strong up front with their top two scorers returning. The attack returns a total of five players that tallied at least 10 goals and played in every game last season. Leading the list of returning attackers is senior Christie Wienckowski. The team’s leading scorer each of the last two years, Wienckowski is a talented offensive player that has over 100 career points. After posting 30 goals and 13 assists last season she will again be a focal point of opposing defenses. Helping to balance the Blackbirds attack will be junior Annie Kalata who scored a team-high 38 goals last season and chipped in five assists. Kalata is capable of scoring in bunches as evidenced by her nine multigoal games, including a school-record nine tallies in a win over Bryant in the season finale. Freshman Caitlin Farrell will bolster the LIU attack after a strong career at Union Endicott High School. Farrell was an all-conference performer and will have a chance to earn playing time right away.

Maricondo has been a three-year starter and two-time captain for the Blackbirds and is a solid all-around midfielder. Offensively, she scored a career-high 16 goals last season. An aggressive defender, she led the squad with 40 ground balls and 23 caused turnovers.

Rounding out the returnees in the midfield is sophomore Claire Ranney. The speedy Ranney ranked fourth on the team with 29 goals scored, but also picked up 28 ground balls to rank among the team leaders. Defense An improved defense will bolster LIU’s prospects for a conference tournament berth and with five experienced returnees the pieces are there for turnaround. Senior Ilana Bernstein is the most-experienced returnee having started for much of her three seasons. She missed seven games due to injury last year, but is ready to return to solidify the defense. Classmates Revay Corbett and Danielle Laird are also back to help the Blackbirds for another season. The pair both earned a good amount of time in the starting lineup last season and that experience should be valuable as they assume larger roles. Felicia Reynolds was much improved last year and started in 13 games. Her emergence as a reliable defender will strengthen LIU’s chances at shutting down opponents. Sophomore Amber Meek can play either defense or goalkeeper and appeared in 16 games last season as a rookie. Classmate Jacqueline Simonian appeared in 16 games overall playing goalie. They improved as the season went along and give LIU a pair of experience netminders. Freshman Gina Haber is another option in goal after joining the Blackbirds from Tottenville High School. She earned All-PSAL honors as a senior and will work to earn playing time. Long Island opens its pursuit of a postseason trip at home against Saint Mary’s on Feb. 21 before opening its nine-game NEC slate at Robert Morris on March 19. The conference championship will be staged at the site of the regular-season champion on April 23 and 25.

2010 Long Island University Lacrosse

Midfield The core of LIU’s experience and leadership will come from the midfield where five starters return, led by Maricondo and Scheerer.

Scheerer has been another stalwart in the center of the field for LIU during her three years as a starter. She has also been a two-year captain and should help solidify LIU defensively now that she is healthy after missing four games last year. Sara LaNoir and Jenna Schauder have both been starters during their two seasons at LIU and help in a number of ways. LaNoir can contribute on both ends of the field and ended the season ranked second on the squad in caused turnovers. Schauder is another talented two-way player and posted career-highs in nearly every category last season, including 16 goals.

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.

Gale Stevens Haynes 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.”

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, 2,500seat venue, open to the public for athletic and civic events. Its Harriet Rothkopf Heilbrunn ’32 Academic Nursing Center offers an extensive array of free preventive health services as well as a home for Brooklyn’s first Lupus outreach and education office, all in service to the entire community. A wider array of wellness services, including special cluster of intervention programs addressing asthma and lead poisoning in children, are planned to begin in 2007. In recent months, the Provost also has overseen a dramatic re-landscaping that has nearly tripled the green space for the central campus, with native plants and amenities that create a serene environment and enhance the “college experience” on this urban campus. 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,” she maintains. 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.

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 links with the community and transforming the Campus into a vibrant urban academic center. One of the Provost’s visions – a modern performing arts center for the students and the community – became a reality in 2005. The centerpiece of the new complex is the wood-paneled, 320-seat Kumble Theater for the Performing Arts, where cutting-edge and traditional dance, music and theater performances regularly draw standing-room-only crowds from the Campus and the surrounding region.

Athletics Administration

John Suarez 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.

2010 Long Island University Lacrosse

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.

Head Athletic Trainer

Assistant Athletic Trainer

Erica Marcano Assistant Athletic Trainer

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 in order 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.

Richard James

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 especially 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 Northeast Conference.

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 this past year of 3.14. During the 2008-09 academic year, 15 of the 18 teams posted cumulative averages above 3.00. There were 111 student-athletes (58 percent) who had a cumulative GPA above 3.00 and 32 student-athletes (17 percent) with GPAs above 3.50. Over 100 student-athletes were named to the Northeast Conference Academic Honor Roll and for the second straight year, the NCAA announced Public Recognition Awards for the academic work of the women’s golf, indoor track and field and cross country teams. In additon, the men’s golf and soccer teams earned NEC Team Academic Awards. 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.
