2006 LMU

VOLLEYBALL

The 2006 Lions:

COMING OF AGE LMU volleyball returns five starters plus its libero. And Lion fans return with hope for a fourth straight NCAA postseason run.

Loyola Marymount University volleyball made its third straight appearance at the NCAA Volleyball Championships in 2005. Now, the 2006 Lions return wanting even more. 2005 Review The 2005 postseason appearance was LMU’s seventh trip to the NCAAs in the last nine years, and the Lions will look to post another successful season in the highly competitive West Coast Conference. For the 2005 Lions, an at-large invitation to the NCAA Volleyball Championship served as proof that LMU was worthy of the attention it received when the AVCA dubbed it one of its “Rodney Dangerfield” teams. The AVCA assigned the nickname when the Lions did not get the respect they deserved in the national polls after posting wins like a pair of road victories over then-ninth-ranked Hawaii and 20th-ranked San Diego. Both wins snapped significant winning streaks for the Lions’ victims and caught the AVCA’s attention. But a tough postseason draw once again awaited the Lions at the 2005 NCAAs, as LMU was sent to Salt Lake City, Utah, in a bracket with Utah State, Arizona, and host Utah. There, the Lions fell to the host Utes in the first round. 2 LMU

Head Coach Steve Stratos

The 2006 LMU Lions

Head Coach Steve Stratos completed his 16th campaign at the helm of the program with a 16th straight winning season. In his time at LMU, Stratos has led the Lions to nine 20-win seasons and 11 postseason appearances. Stratos has posted a career record of 324-153, the most victories in LMU volleyball history and second among current WCC coaches. In league action, he owns a mark of 157-67, good for a winning percentage over .700. With 157 career conference victories, Stratos again ranks second among WCC coaches. The 2006 season will see Stratos coach his 500th career match.

The Lions will look to co-captains Sandy Krone and Heather Hughes to continue the legacy of 16 straight winning campaigns that the Class of 2005 left behind. Hughes, the 2005-06 LMU Co-Female Athlete of the Year and first-team All-WCC selection will be the primary option in the team’s offense at opposite. Krone, the 2005-06 LMU Female Strength Athlete of the Year, will return as a strong candidate for the starting job at middle blocker.

Class of 2005 With the departure of graduating seniors Dina DeBernardi, Michelle Look, Krista Houseman, and Audrey Francis, the Lions will have some major roles to fill. Most notably, the Lions will be without the leadership of three-time captain and All-WCC honorable mention recipient DeBernardi. Along with DeBernardi, who finished her LMU career ranked in 10 different all-time categories, both Look (career dig average) and Houseman (season attack percentage) also worked their way into the LMU record book.

Newcomers Stratos and his staff will look down the bench to a roster that includes five new options in one transfer and four freshmen players. Junior Ashley Dutro joined the LMU program as a transfer from 2005 Big West Co-Champion UC Santa Barbara, where she was the starting setter for the Gauchos. She ranked fourth in her conference with 12.00 assists per game in 2005. “In Ashley, we’re getting a two-year veteran who has experience playing at a high level of Division I volleyball,” Stratos said. “She has been very successful and has done a great deal of winning as a starter on a championship team.” continued


allgrownup The Lions return a strong core of veterans, including Christianna Reneau, Jania Motton, and captains Sandy Krone and Heather Hughes.


The freshman incoming class is highlighted by a pair of standouts in Megan Nash and Becky Stehling. Nash joins the Lions after a high school career at Notre Dame Academy, while Becky Stehling hails from Austin, Texas and Bowie High School. Nash is a 6-0 middle blocker/outside hitter who earned All-CIF and AllSunshine League honors each of her four seasons, including selections to the first-teams the last three years. She was named CIF Division III Player of the Year after leading her team to the CIF Division 3A championship in 2005. "Megan is a great all-around volleyball player who has a lot of experience, both indoors and on the beach," Stratos said. "She has the ability to play any one of three positions at the net, including outside hitter, middle blocker, and opposite. Megan also possesses advanced ballcontrol skills and could very well develop into a primary serve-receive passer." Stehling was a three-time first-team all-district and all-conference selection after starting on her varsity team all four seasons. The 6-1 middle blocker was also a two-time All-Centex team selection. "Becky is a very gifted natural athete," Stratos said. "She is a quick jumper and has an impressive vertical jump. Becky is a pure middle blocker who has the speed to close the block and the explosiveness to become a major offensive threat. She has already developed a variety of attacks which makes it difficult for opponents to defend her." Morgan Kelly and Tina Moger join the newcomer class after standout high school careers of their own. Kelly was a three-time All-Pioneer League selection and team MVP while at Palos Verdes High School. Moger was named Kauai Interscholastic Federation Player of the Year as a sophomore at Kauai High School. The 2006 LMU Lineup The five newcomers join a program that returns five starters plus the libero, losing just two starters to graduation. Though the 2006 Lions were picked to finish fifth in WCC play, Stratos feels the versatility of this year’s players allows the coaches to put the best six players on the floor at one time, and that could mean exciting things for Lion fans. Middle Blocker Krone is among the most notable middle blockers on the Lions’ roster, after a strong spring season at the position. That will most likely be the co-captain’s role, although she has shown the coaching staff that she can also play other positions. Returners Jania Motton, Erin Downey, and Lindsay Banas will likely also see time in the middle this season. When healthy, Motton has had an impact for the Lions in the past, as her play last season earned her a spot on the 2005 Sacramento State All-Tournament team. She leads the returning blockers, averaging .79 blocks per game in 2005. Downey also stepped up when called upon in 2005, recording seasonhighs 16 kills and seven blocks in back-to-back matches. Newcomers Nash and Stehling will also offer their talents at the middle blocker position. Setter Lion fans will enjoy the battle on the court for the starting setter job, because no matter what Stratos and his staff decide, they cannot go

wrong. Dutro offers new possibilities after running the offense at conference champion UC Santa Barbara last season. But coaches and fans won’t forget the contributions of returning starter sophomore K.C. Walsh, who tallied 995 assists and six double-doubles last season. While Dutro and Walsh will likely share the majority of the setting duties, Hughes and senior Cat Svorinich may each have turns at the helm of the offense as well. Hughes shared the job with Walsh last season and became the only WCC player to record a statistical triple-double in 2005, doing it five times. Svorinich saw some time at the position in the spring and her setting skills caught the attention of the coaching staff. Outside Hitter Familiar faces return to the Lions this year at outside hitter. Led by WCC All-Freshman selection Emily Day and Christianna Reneau, the returners give the coaches many strong options outside. Day recorded double-digit kills in 14 of LMU’s final 17 matches. Reneau reached the double-digit kill mark in 20 of 30 matches while leading the Lions in serving percentage (.961). Other options outside include newcomers Kelly and Nash, and returners Downey, Krone, and Motton. Opposite Hughes, who shared the setting duties last season with Walsh, will likely return to her full-time role at opposite this season. The first-team all-conference selection is a spark-plug for the Lions, and brings her allaround game to the court for LMU. Krone, while projected to see most of her time in the middle, also gives the coaches options at opposite. Defensive Specialist Lauren Kirk enters the season as the favorite for the libero starting job, after earning the job at the end of her rookie campaign in 2005. She tallied double-digit digs in six matches, including LMU’s final four matches of the regular season. Another strong option in the backcourt is the senior Svorinich, who brings strong serving skills to the court along with her defensive play. Returner Kiera Reilly, along with newcomers Moger and Kelly, will also likely see time as defensive specialists for the Lions. 2006 Schedule Lion fans always see a high-octane schedule for LMU volleyball, and this year will be no different. The Lions will play seven matches against teams ranked in the 2006 AVCA Preseason Top-25 poll. Six of these seven matches will come during WCC play, as the Lions play in one of the top volleyball conferences in the nation. For three straight seasons, at least half of the WCC programs qualified for the NCAA postseason. In 2003 and 2005, the WCC sent five of eight teams to the NCAAs. “Every year, we attempt to play a high-powered schedule and once again, we feel we’ve accomplished this with our 2006 schedule,” Stratos said. “Beginning with our two tournaments at home and continuing with our competitive conference schedule, fans will experience the best of Division I college volleyball.”

setup HEATHER HUGHES With two true setters in the program, Hughes is expected to see more time at opposite.

SARAH MCFARLAND

outside hitter 1994-1997 Described by many as “one of the top players in the country” during her career at LMU, Noriega elevated standards for the future of LMU women’s volleyball in her four seasons with the Lions. In 1997, Noriega became the first player to earn AVCA All-America first-team honors as well as Volleyball Magazine AllAmerica second-team accolades. She was the WCC Player of the Year in 1997 after being named an All-WCC first-team selection for the third consecutive season. Noriega was a threetime All-District VIII honoree, LMU’s Female Athlete of the Year (1997-98), a participant at the U.S. Olympic Festival (1995), a World Games participant, and 2000 Olympian. In her final year as a Lion, Noriega was recognized as the AVCA National Player of the Week twice (Oct. 6 and Nov. 10). On November 7, 1997, Noriega set the NCAA record for most kills in a four-game match with 47 against San Diego, a mark which still stands today.

Overall, she holds five NCAA national records, the most by any one player.

Tiana Newsome (2000-03) completed her four seasons owning almost every LMU all-time blocking category, as she was the career leader in solo blocks, block assists, and total blocks. A 2002 first-team All-WCC honoree, Newsome averaged a team-high 1.44 blocks per game, which was second in the WCC and tied for 18th in the nation.

One of only two freshmen to be named to the AVCA All-Region team in 2000, Nicole Oehlman (2000-04) earned second-team AllWCC honors that season as well. Her 13.41 assist per game average ranked her 25th in the nation and second in the WCC. Oehlman went on to earn All-WCC honorable mention recognition in each of her next three seasons.

A breakout upperclassman career earned Kelli Nerison (2001-04) AVCA honorable mention All-America honors in 2003 and 2004. Collegiate Volleyball Update named the twotime All-WCC first-team selection one of the top five middle blockers in the nation in 2004. Also a two-time first-team AVCA All-Region pick, she was a two time WCC All-Academic pick and finished her career setting 10 new program records.

A

s a member of the U.S. National Volleyball team that qualified for the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia, Sarah Noriega became the third Lion to participate in the Olympic Games. Noriega became a key member of the U.S. National team in 1998. In her inaugural year with the team, she played in 68 games and tallied 191 kills on 498 attacks. She also added 26 aces and 43 stuff blocks. Noriega had an even better sophomore season with the national team, as she

played in 144 games and led team USA in kills (409), blocks (82) and aces (28). She was named team MVP for her efforts that season. As a member of the 2000 Olympic squad, Noriega finished the summer fourth on the team with 185 kills and a .393 kill percentage. Her serves wreaked havoc for opponents throughout the Summer Games as her 17 service aces ranked second best on the team.

Q&A with Olympian Sarah Noriega LMU: What was your favorite Olympic moment? SN: I have so many, but I think the opening ceremonies was the most memorable. It was so incredible being able to represent my country in the greatest sporting event in the world. The feeling of first stepping foot on the field after coming through the tunnel is indescribable. Then seeing the Olympic flame lit topped the whole experience off. It is something I will always cherish. LMU: Why did you choose LMU? SN: LMU, Texas and Nebraska were the three main schools I had narrowed my decision down to. LMU seemed like the best fit for me because I got along with the players and coaching staff the best. LMU's academics played a big factor, as well as the location of the school. I wanted to experience LA, and this was the best way I saw to be able to do that. LMU: What did you like about the local area surrounding LMU? SN: I came from a small midwest town so moving to Los Angeles was a little intimidating at first. LMU’s location, though, is perfect. Not only are you minutes away from the beach cities, airport, and major freeways, but you have the peace and tranquility of the school itself and its surrounding residential community. LMU is located in a small, safe community, but close enough to the things that make college memorable. LMU: What were the academic advantages of attending LMU? SN: I liked that LMU offered the opportunity to not only know my peers, but to develop relationships with the professors as well. I never felt like I was just a number in an auditorium full of students. LMU and its sister schools stem from a long tradition of academic excellence, therefore, allowing the university to be connected with the top personnel in nearly every field of study it offers.

LMU: What were some of the academic support services available to you at LMU? SN: Going from high school to collegiate academics was a big adjustment for me, but easy access to helpful staff and materials helped me a great deal. I frequently took advantage of the Learning Resource Center where I met with advisors. The LRC helped me tremendously and was able to set up personal tutoring whenever I needed it. LMU: How did playing at LMU help you reach your goals of being an All-American and an Olympian? SN: First and foremost, being in a safe and productive environment allowed me to relax and feel comfortable to give my best effort. I owe the majority of my success to Coach Stratos and to Coach Smoot. They were the ones who recognized the potential of a skinny girl and took a chance in developing her into a great athlete. They constantly supported, encouraged and challenged me. They worked so hard to help me realize my dreams. I owe them big time! LMU: Is there anything you would change about your playing career? SN: There have been times in my career when I haven’t enjoyed playing and experienced some terrible moments. At the time I wished I could change things or that I didn’t have to endure those bad times, but in retrospect I needed to experience them. It was those moments of self doubt, fatigue, mental and physical exhaustion that helped me to learn more about myself. I think that every athlete experiences moments like that; but it’s athletes that choose to persevere through those times that succeed and excel. So, in short, no I wouldn’t have changed any part of the road that I have traveled. I know that there are still many more obstacles and I hope I have learned enough to endure and overcome those challenges as well.

Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles, the Pavilion served as the host site for the weightlifting competition of the Games. More than 1,000 people were involved with the staging of the event which attracted the largest number of weightlifting competitors in the history of the Olympics. More than two million people were brought into the Pavilion through television, radio, newspapers and wire services that attended the competition. Prior to the Olympics, Gersten was the site of the McDonald’s Gymnastics Classic in 1983, featuring the best male and female gymnasts from the United States and the former Soviet Union. In 1991, the Pavilion was the venue for the men’s and women’s volleyball and boxing preliminaries at the U.S. Olympic Festival. It has been host to top basketball camps in the country, hosting LMU alumnus Pete Newell and his Big Man’s Camp for NBA players. It has served as one of the official practice homes of the L.A. Lakers and L.A. Clippers, and continues to welcome visiting NBA franchises. The Pavilion also hosted Kiki Vandeweghe’s Individual Instruction Camp with some of the best in the NBA participating. Gersten Pavilion was named in honor of Albert Gersten, father of LMU regent Albert Gersten, Jr., a 1974 LMU graduate. The Gersten family was the largest single donor to the construction project. Positioned just to the east of the University gates, the entire LMU Athletic and Recreation Complex includes Gersten Pavilion, George C. Page Baseball Stadium and Pride Park, Smith Softball Field, Sullivan Soccer Field, and the Burns Recreation Center and Aquatics Complex.

strengthtraining STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING The strength and conditioning program at Loyola Marymount University has become a primary piece in its quest to Building Champions. The program has taken a huge step into become one of the top strength and conditioning programs with the new direction established by Head Strength Coach Rick Stassi and Assistant Strength Coach Todd Sutker. Under the direction of Stassi and Sutker, LMU strength and conditioning will make a huge step into becoming one of the top programs in the nation as they have formed a partnership with Frappier Acceleration Sports Training (FAST). “FAST is by far the top speed and power training program in the world,” said Stassi. FAST is a complex and systemic curriculum that brings together key components of improved speed, agility and overall athletic performance. Throughout the training period, specific attention is give to spring mechanics, neuromuscular coordination, muscle physiology, anaerobic and aerobic conditioning for the specific purpose of improving performance. More than 200,000 athletes around the world from the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL have participated in the program. Some of the professional athletes who use the system regularly are Heather Mitts (Professional Soccer Player), Jason Kreis (Professional Soccer Player), Dan O'Brien (Olympic Decathlon Athlete), Cris Carter (All-Pro Wide Receiver), Shaun Alexander (Seattle Seahawks), Darin Erstad (Anaheim Angels) and Brett Hull (Detroit Red Wings). The partnership with Frappier includes their stateof-the-art equipment and training techniques. “With the Frappier Acceleration Program, all of the student-athletes here at LMU will reach their genetic ceiling for speed, quickness and strength,” said Stassi. With the program in place, Stassi and Sutker have developed goals for the student-athletes that implement a plan to advance each athlete. The development of each athlete is focused so they may reach their athletic potential. The training through Frappier's program will be enhanced through proper training in strength, conditioning, flexibility, agility, nutrition and rest. The program assesses each athlete's strengths and weaknesses in those areas and customizes each program to meet individual needs. Like the rest of the LMU campus where individual attention is the norm and not the exception, strength and conditioning strives on that philosophy. With the programs in place, the staff works with the athlete and the coaches to give specialized individual attention to ensure proper growth for the athlete and the sport. Every workout is supervised with daily attention given to the athlete to assure progression. The programs are also designed to limit injury to the student-athlete while in action. The strength and conditioning program will get a major upgrade to its equipment this year thanks to the arrangement with Frappier. The Lions will continue to work in the nearly 1,000-square foot facility in Gersten Pavilion. In addition, the student-athletes workout in the 8,000-square foot weight and fitness training facility within the Burns Recreation and Aquatics Center, which opened in 2000.

ATHLETIC TRAINING The busiest place per square foot on the campus of Loyola Marymount University is not what one would think. It is not LMU's on campus commons area, the Lair, University Hall or the LMU bookstore. It is the LMU Athletics Training Room. Right around 1,000-square feet, the LMU training room at any given moment in season is what Head Athletics Trainer Keith Ellison calls "organized and controlled chaos." In the height of its busiest time of the year, when all 18 LMU NCAA Division I sports are in action, the Training Room can make a casual onlooker dizzy. However, Ellison, his three full-time assistants, Joe Gonzalez, Beth Drayer, Gary Dyogi and 15 student assistants make it look easy. In his 16th-year at LMU and 10th as the Head Athletics Trainer, Ellison and his staff have turned the LMU training room into a model for the school's main conference affiliate, the West Coast Conference. "This is a great place to be because of the people," said Ellison, who graduated from LMU in 1987. "The fulltime staff we have here is the best in the conference. We have the right personalities for LMU and they all genuinely care and are concerned about the student-athletes, not just for their injuries and sports they play, but for each person as a whole. On a given day, the Athletics Training Room will see about half of the 325 student-athletes at LMU. A given day will include lots of paperwork, therapy for student-athletes recovering from injuries that keep them out of competition, appointments with doctors and pre- and post-practice needs. "Our mission is to eliminate the chance for injury. We stress the use of ice and strength and conditioning to reduce the risk of injury. Thus, the traffic in our training room can get very heavy throughout the day," said Ellison, who has been busy this year. "We have had a lot of different injuries with many different teams. Because of that we have had a lot of traffic in our training room doing rehab and doing the normal stuff to prepare for practice or games." In addition to providing the best care available in the nation to LMU athletes, the training program services the needs of its opponents in a first class manner and provides an opportunity for students in the field of athletic training to earn valuable experience. With more than 50 years of experience in the field, the Training Program provides services that includes a philosophy that places a high value on health and wellness, a program that allows injured student-athletes to return to their sport as soon as medically safe and to substantially reduce the risk of athletic injury for those student-athletes. The Training Room at LMU features state-of-theart equipment in a 1,000-square foot sports medicine complex. The equipment includes whirlpools, paraffin bath, ultrasound, muscle stimulation and hydrocalators.

whatit’sabout IT’S ABOUT THE SUPPORT Throughout an LMU education, students enjoy the support of instructors who know each individual by name and who make classes challenging, fascinating and fun. Class sizes are 13 to 1 and give each student a chance to exceed even their own expectations. IT’S WHO YOU ARE WITH Looking for camaraderie? When it comes to providing friends and mentors, you won’t find a university surpassing LMU. The campus population comes from all 50 states and 70 countries. Better still, LMU offers more than 100 extracurricular organizations that hone the students skills and help them find like-minded colleagues for life. Whatever the religious belief, the university pays attention to individual spirit. “I’ve thought a lot about what makes my friends at college different than those from high school, and I’ve realized that the people at LMU live up to the mission of being men and women for others,” said a sophomore. Students are free to examine faith in social or service activities. IT’S WHERE YOU LIVE Every fall, nine out of 10 first-year students take advantage of LMU housing and for some very good reasons. Some of the benefits of LMU living are simple: an active social scene, meal plans that allow students to dine at various campus locations, and easy access to classes and campus facilities. But university housing offers much more than simple convenience, it also give students an edge. As a resident, students are immediately plugged into programs that help them achieve better grades, meet new friends, develop professional contacts and graduate in a timely manner. IT’S WHERE YOU’RE BOUND “We’re trying to get rid of you,” so professor Kelly Younger, who directs the Honors Program, likes to tell LMU students. He’s referring to the study abroad opportunities, scholarships, internships, academic conferences and competitions that take students off campus and into the world. When it comes time to graduate, students will have the knowledge, the confidence, and the strength of spirit to achieve anything the students can imagine.

thecolleges VIEW TO A PROMISING FUTURE The Chronicle of Higher Education notes that at Jesuit institutions, this precept “translates into a large amount of individual attention from faculty members and accessibility to high-level administrators, including the president.” At LMU, students don’t simply benefit from cura personalis; they practice it, too, carrying out the Jesuit ideal of “men and women for others.” The Marymount sisters contribute a history of educating women and teaching through the arts, with a deliberately international perspective that encourages respect for all cultures. LMU brings these gifts together in five colleges: Business Administration, Communications and Fine Arts, Film and Television, Liberal Arts, and Science and Engineering.

• At LMU, real-world experiences benefits any discipline-even literature. Students in the BELLARMINE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS don’t just read Jack Kerouac. They go on the road. English professor Kelly Younger explains: “I teach a course called Road Read in which we study not only the literature of Los Angeles and California, but also the city itself as text. After reading Nathanael West’s The Day of Locust, we take a walking tour of downtown L.A., focusing on the architecture of the 1920s and 30s. We read Kerouac’s Big Sur and drive up the coast, spending a week reading, writing and sharing on the intellectual adventure. • Under the direction of award-winning entrepreneurship professor Fred Kiesner, for instance, students in our COLLEGE OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION participate in an internship program that places them with social entrepreneurs who are working to better society. “More and more, students are saying, ‘Hey, I can use my abilities to do good for others by doing business,” said Kiesner. • From their first year, engineering majors in our COLLEGE OF SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING address real-world design challenges, like devising plans for improving LMU’s traffic flow. “The project takes a lot of creativity and some pretty complex problem-solving,” says associate dean Tom Calder. “During students’ presentations, we’ve had the University’s V.P. for facilities sit in to listen to their ideas and offer professional feedback.” • Students in the SCHOOL OF FILM AND TELEVISION produce their own short films and TV pilots, with acting and music often supplied by student performers from our COLLEGE OF COMMUNICATION AND FINE ARTS. When our talent pool can’t accommodate them, Hollywood can. “For my junior thesis, I teamed up with two other people to make a two-part, 10-minute sitcom,” says a TV production major. “We developed an idea and asked a senior in screenwriting to write a script. When it came to casting, we ran an ad in Backstage West and received 300 head shots. It was like a real casting audition.”

HONORS PROGRAM • The University Honors Program provides an intensive and innovative academic experience for the serious student. The program combines four interdisciplinary University Honors core courses with an intensive year-long sequence in writing, critical thinking and American Cultures. A second year-long sequence in the history of civilization and a course in natural philosophy are also a part of the curriculum. All honors students are required to display proficiency in a foreign language, take an upper-division ethics course, an interdisciplinary seminar in the junior year and a senior thesis. Interested students should apply to the University Honors Director.

The Athletics Department is committed to ensuring every student-athlete reaches their full potential in the classroom. Each student-athlete is required to be enrolled in 15 units per semester and is asked to keep a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA. Each team can increase the department standard depending on the philosophy of the coach. AT-RISK STUDENTS If a student falls below a 2.5 GPA during a given semester they are required to meet weekly with a member of the academic support staff and attend study hall the following semester. To help students in need, tutorial services through the Learning Resource Center (LRC) may be recommended by the advisor or requested by the student. FIRST YEAR STUDENTS All first semester student-athletes are required to meet weekly with a member of the academic support staff to ensure they get off on the right track at LMU. In addition, they are expected to attend study hall for a minimum of 4 hours weekly, in 2 hour blocks. Students are encouraged to form study groups here with fellow student-athletes. Finally, first year students are required to take a one-unit class, LIBA 125, Foundations of Academic Achievement. Taught by the Academic Coordinator, Matt Casaña, this class serves to foster important lessons in students such as time management, college nutrition, and study skills.

The Player of the Year is the program's first. Top-half finish No. 6. • Women's tennis topped 56th-ranked San Diego in the WCC Tournament Semifinals as the Lions went on to finish second in the WCC. Top-half finish No. 7. • Women's rowing needed a win in the final event, the Varsity 8 race, of the 2006 WCC Championships to earn its first-ever WCC title. They came through with a convincing win over nine-time WCC Champ Gonzaga. Top-half finish No. 8. • Baseball needed just one win in the final series of the season to clinch the Commissioner's Cup for the Lions. They came through big as well, earning a series sweep to finish fourth in the WCC. Top-half finish No. 9. • The Lions' non-WCC programs also came through big.

LMU has grown considerably over the years and offers a diverse range of 21 varsity sports, 18 of which compete at the Division I level within the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Twelve sports, including baseball, men's and women's basketball, women's crew, men's and women's cross country, men's golf, men's and women's soccer, men's and women's tennis and women's volleyball, compete in the prestigious West Coast Conference. In addition, women's swimming participates in the Pacific Collegiate Swimming Conference and men and women's water polo compete in the Western Water Polo Association. Women's softball competes in the Pacific Coast Softball Conference while the newly formed men’s and women’s track program (added in 2006) is an independent to round out the 18 programs competing at the NCAA D-I level. Men's crew is affiliated with the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association and the LMU cheer program was added as a varsity sport in 2005. The success of Lion Athletics has never been stronger, claiming some of its crowning moments since 2000. Since the start of the 21st century, the Lions have sent 23 teams to the NCAA tournament while winning 17 conference championships in the process. With the success, 41 individual student-athletes have earned All-America honors since 2000. Traditions of championships has been set from the beginning. One of the most memorable runs in NCAA history was that of the Paul Westhead lead men's basketball programs from 19851990. The Lions won two WCC tournament titles, and two regular season titles. As the Lions set the all-time NCAA Division-I record with 122.4 points per game in 1990, it was the people that made the Lions special. What Bo Kimble, Hank Gathers, Jeff Fryer and the rest of the up-tempo Lions did for the men's basketball team continued a long-standing tradition of a basketball legacy at LMU. Two Loyola basketball alumni, Pete Newell and Phil Woolpert, have been inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts. Newell coached the 1960 U.S. Olympic bas-


2006 LMU ketball team to a gold medal and led California to the 1959 NCAA Championship. Woolpert coached the University of San Francisco to the 1955 and 1956 NCAA Championships and a 60-game win streak, the second longest in college basketball history. Speaking of championships, Bob Boyd, former Loyola football and track great, captured the 1950 NCAA men's track championship in the 100-yard dash. He later played seven seasons as a tight end for the NFL's Los Angeles Rams, and led them to the 1951 World title.

just one Lion to make an appearance in the Olympics. This past 2004 Summer Olympics former and threetime men's volleyball All-American Reid Priddy burst on the international scene and led the U.S. Men's Volleyball team. Women's water polo players Rachel Riddell and Christine Robinson both played for the Canadian National Team in the Olympics and current women’s water polo player Katie Hicks made the U.S. National Team roster in 2006. Over 95 years ago, the Lions began Building Champions.The work continues in 2006-07.

The 1980s saw LMU's athletic success propel to the national and international level. Just four years after pitching the LMU baseball team to the 1986 College World Series, Tim Layana was a vital member of the 1990 World Series Champion Cincinnati Reds. Five members from the 1986 LMU team eventually played in the major leagues. Like Boyd in the NFL and Layana in MLB, many former LMU student-athletes have gone on to the next level in their respective sports. Entering the 2006-07 season, 14 Lions currently play professional baseball, including current major leaguers C.J. Wilson with the Texas Rangers and Billy Traber with the Washington Nationals. Additionally, four men's soccer players have played in the MLS the last four years, including Arturo Torres playing for Chivas USA.

2006 LMU

lmuathleticsfacilities The athletic facilities at Loyola Marymount University have seen a little of everything in the almost 70 years while in its current Westchester location. From the 1984 Olympic games to LMU basketball to the World Cup and everything in between, the LMU athletic facilities have become home to the best. The complex continues to grow and improve with each year. The facilities include Albert Gersten Pavilion, George Page Stadium, Sullivan Field, the Burns Recreation and Aquatics Center, the Jane Bove Boathouse, Smith Field, the LMU Tennis Complex, which includes the George P. Kading and Morris A. Pivaroff Tournament Court completed in 2004, and the Thomas Higgins Short Game Center, a pracitice facility for the golf program. Also completed in 2004 was the addition of Pride Park, the new entrance to baseball’s Page Stadium Joining the family of facilities the past year was SMITH FIELD, home to the LMU softball team, and the HIGGINS SHORT GAME CENTER for the golf team. Smith Field is complete with inset dugout, state-of-the-art scoreboard, natural grass seating for more than 500 and batting cages. The short game center is a pitch and putt practice facility behind the centerfield fence of Smith Field. It includes a pair of bunkers and plenty of space for putting at different angles. The existing centerpiece to the LMU athletics facilities is ALBERT GERSTEN PAVILION, entering its 25th year as the home to LMU’s indoor athletic events. Hosting men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball, the Pavilion has seen its share of memorable moments. One came as the men’s basketball team posted a 16-game winning streak that spanned three seasons from Feb. 25, 1987 through Nov. 28, 1988. On Feb. 20, 1988, during the winning streak, Gersten set the attendance record with a standing room only crowd of 4,525 in a 142-127 win over rival Pepperdine. Built to accommodate the 1984 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles, the Pavilion served as the host site for the weightlifting competition. It is named in honor of Albert Gersten, father of Albert Gersten, Jr., a 1974 LMU graduate. Now in its 24th season as the home of Lion baseball, GEORGE C. PAGE STADIUM has established itself as one of college baseball’s most unique ball parks. The park continues to distinguish itself thanks to the recent addition of Pride Park. However, the biggest enhancement came in 2001 with the Mikos Blue Monster, a new wall in left field that contains a manual scoreboard, complete with out of town scores reminiscent to Boston’s Fenway Park. The wall was built thanks to a gift from Paul Mikos ‘66. The BURNS RECREATION AND AQUATICS CENTER opened in the fall of 2000 and has become the home of some of the best water polo in the NCAA. The Olympic size pool is part of the $18-million Burns Rec Center, and serves as the home venue for men’s and women’s water polo and women’s swimming. Showing that it is one of the finest facilities in the country, LMU hosted the Men’s Water Polo NCAA National Championships in December of 2002 and will host the championship once again in December of 2006. Throughout the last decade, SULLIVAN FIELD has been host to some of the best in soccer from around the world. With the development of the soccer program at LMU, Sullivan Field has become one of the top facilities in the soccer-rich WCC. Sweden, Italy and Argentina used Sullivan during the 1994 FIFA World Cup, and four years later, the field was used as a practice site for the World Cup exhibition Gold Cup Tournament. The LMU Tennis Center grew to six courts in 2004 with the KADING AND PIVAROFF TOURNAMENT COURT, the centerpiece of the facility. A new Daktronics scoreboard was added to the facility in 2006. Completed in 2002, JANE BROWNE BOVE BOATHOUSE is the only athletics facility not on the grounds of the Westchester campus. The facility includes two boat bays, a work area, an office, a new dock and restrooms. The boathouse is part of beautiful Marina del Rey, Calif. Conditions are generally ideal. The water is protected within the marina, temperatures are nice throughout the year and boat traffic is low. More is on the horizon. In 2005, the Athletics Department was included as part of a major LMU campaign that will ensure that LMU Athletics will Build Champions well into the future. Follow LMULions.com for the latest on the newest LMU facilities.

VOLLEYBALL

administration UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT

ATHLETIC DIRECTOR

Rev. Robert B. Lawton, S.J., was named the 14th president of Loyola Marymount University on June 1, 1999. Father Lawton leads LMU into the next millennium after serving as the dean of Georgetown College at Georgetown University since 1989. Lawton, a classicist, scripture scholar, administrator, and priest, was born in Cumberland, Maryland, and entered the Society of Jesus in July 1965. Possessing a wealth of experience in both university teaching and administration, Fr. Lawton comes to LMU after giving 20 years of service to Georgetown University. Serving as the assistant Dean from 1984-89, Fr. Lawton also taught in the Theology department as an adjunct assistant professor during that period. He started at the University in 1977 as an assistant professor of Theology and worked in that capacity until 1979. He earned his bachelor of arts degree in classics from Fordham University in 1971, graduating Phi Beta Kappa (summa cum laude). Fr. Lawton went on to attend Harvard University where he completed his doctorate in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations in 1977. Fr. Lawton was a Danforth and Woodrow Wilson Fellow at Harvard. He was ordained in 1981. Following his preparation for ordination from 1979-81, Fr. Lawton traveled to Germany to conduct independent study in both German and theology. In 1982, he accepted an assistant professorship teaching Hebrew and Aramaic at the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome, Italy, a post he held until 1984. In addition to his teaching and administrative duties at Georgetown, Fr. Lawton served on numerous campus committees examining such areas as campus planning, student life, freshman and transfer student admissions, and community relations. Outside of the University he has served as a member of the Board of Trustees of the University of Scranton and Fairfield University. Father Lawton holds the rank of professor in LMU’s Departments of Theological Studies and Classics.

Dr. William S. Husak begins his ninth year as the Athletics Director at Loyola Marymount University. Since taking over the program in 1998, LMU has reached a new level of success. While the Lions’ success has been some of the best in program history, Husak firmly believes the program has “just scratched the surface.” His administrative efforts have focused on developing a team of coaches, support staff and administrators who believe that LMU’s athletics program can be among the elite in the nation. This period of time has been marked by enhancing the support of the athletic teams through the creation of the Student-Athlete Academic Center and the Lions’ Strength and Conditioning Center, increased scholarship and operational support and enhancing the coaching and support staff. The past eight years have been some of the most successful seasons in school history as the Lions won over 57 percent of its dual competitions in that span and claimed the school’s first ever Commissioner’s Cup. Since 1998, LMU has claimed 20 conference championships and 26 NCAA postseason appearances. Off the field, the Lions have had a 50 percent increase in national scholar-athletes as 148 claimed the honor in the 2005-06 academic year. Husak attributes the current success and the future growth of the program to the staff that is in place. Since he took over the program, the coaching and administrative staffs that lend support to the more than 375 student-athletes has more than doubled in size. A full-time head coach will lead 19 of the varsity sports sponsored at LMU. When Husak took over, only nine of the programs were led by full-time coaches. In addition, support for the student-athletes was enhanced with the addition of eight brand new staff positions, which included an athletic academic coordinator, marketing/promotions manager, corporate relations manager, two assistant athletic trainers, a strength and conditioning assistant coach and an assistant media relations director. Husak comes from a long and accomplished background as an administrator, fundraiser and professor during a 19-year career at California State University, Long Beach. Between 1993-1998, he served as the Senior Associate Athletics Director and was mainly responsible for Athletics fundraising. While at CSULB between 1983 and 1997, Husak served as an assistant commissioner for the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA). Between 1986 and 1993 he served as chairman of CSULB's physical education department. As an associate professor of physical education at CSULB between 1979 and 1986, he established the university's Motor Behavior Laboratory. A 1972 graduate of State University of New York (SUNY) at Cortland, Husak holds a master's degree and Ph.D. in Physical Education from Texas A&M University. He and his wife of 33 years, Tish, live in Long Beach and have three sons, Greg, Todd and Jon.

originof”lions” Although its origin is somewhat clouded, the Lion mascot has been synonymous with Loyola Marymount University for more than 70 years. According to the October 5, 1923 edition of the school newspaper, the Los Angeles Loyolan, the Lion mascot was suggested by an enthusiastic fan after 1919 when St. Vincent’s College became Loyola College. Noting the Loyola football players’ fierce competitiveness, that fan described the Loyola players as Lions. The name did not generate too much popularity and the Loyola athletic nickname remained “Loyolans” until 1923. At that time, the article explains, the college wished to inspire new pride in its athletes and fans. Noting the success of nicknames for other colleges, Loyola College opted to give the “Lions” nickname a rebirth. Calling the old Lion mascot “mistreated and forgotten,” the article explains that the Lion would officially find its way into all college songs and cheers. The Lion has remained firmly entrenched in Loyola lore to this day. An alternative origin story traced the nickname to the abundance of actual mountain lions which roamed Westchester when Loyola College moved here in 1927. The area remained widely unpopulated and teemed with wildlife when the school moved atop the bluffs. School officials reportedly adopted the nickname because mountain lions inhabited the area when ground was broken.

BASIC INFORMATION QUESTIONS? Should you have questions regarding any NCAA rules, please contact our Compliance Office at (310) 338-7789 or the NCAA at (317) 917-6222. GO ONLINE NCAA: www.ncaa.org Loyola Marymount: www.LMU.edu LMU Athletics: www.LMULions.com LMU CONTACTS Dan Smith Associate Athletic Director-Compliance (310) 338-7789 (800) LIONS-R-1 Brianna Johnson Compliance Assistant (310) 338-3706 (800) LIONS-R-1 MAILING ADDRESSES Loyola Marymount University Department of Athletics - Compliance 1 LMU Drive - MS 8235 Los Angeles, CA 90045 NCAA Clearinghouse 301 ACT Drive - Box 4043 Iowa City, IA 52243-4043 Toll Free – Domestic: (877) 262-1492 Foreign Calls: (319) 337-1492 www.ncaaclearinghouse.net WHAT CAN I RECEIVE FROM LMU You (or your family) may not receive any benefit, inducement or arrangement such as cash, clothing, cars, improper expenses, transportation, gifts or loans to encourage you to sign a National Letter of Intent or attend an NCAA college. Loyola Marymount University may offer you a oneyear scholarship that covers room and board, tuition and fees, and required course-related books, or any part of these. The institution can recommend that this aid be renewed each year, as is the general practice at LMU. 28

LMU

What do I need to do in order to play at LMU as a freshman? If you intend to participate in Division I or II athletics as a freshman, you must register and be certified by the NCAA InitialEligibility Clearinghouse. You can register by going on-line on the internet at www.ncaaclearinghouse.net. You will need a major credit card to complete the registration. The registration fee is $50 for domestic prospects ($75 for foreign prospects). When you're finished, print out the registration form, sign it and present it to your high school counselor. They will send the form along with an official copy of your high-school transcripts to the NCAA Clearinghouse for processing. Additionally, you must arrange for official SAT or ACT scores to be sent to the Clearinghouse directly by the testing agency. This can be done on-line at the testing agency's website. If you have questions, you or your high school counselor can obain assistance by calling the NCAA Clearinghouse toll-free at 877-262-1492. After graduation and before the school closes for the summer, your counselor must send the Clearinghouse a copy of your final transcript that confirms graduation from high school. How do I know if I'm being recruited? You become a "prospective student-athlete" when you start ninth-grade classes. Before the ninth grade, you become a prospective student-athlete if a college gives you (or your relatives or friends) any financial aid or other benefits that the college does not provide to prospective students generally. You become a "recruited prospective student-athlete" at a particular college if any coach approaches you (or any member of your family) about enrolling and participating in athletics at that college. Activities by coaches that cause you to become a recruited prospective student-athlete are: (1) providing you with an official visit; (2) placing more than one telephone call to you or any other member of your family; or (3) visiting you or any other member of your family anywhere other than the college campus; or (4) issuing to you a National Letter of Intent or written offer of athletically related financial aid. Boosters: In addition to general recruiting regulations, no alumni, boosters or representatives of a college's athletics interests can be involved in your recruitment. There can be no phone calls or letters from boosters. If an LMU booster is contacting you, please call the LMU Compliance Office as soon as possible at (310) 3387789. Don't risk your NCAA eligibility! When can I talk to the coach and have him/her see me play? TELEPHONE CALLS In all Sports Other Than Football and Basketball A college coach (but not a booster) is permitted to call you (or your parents or legal guardians) on or after July 1 following the completion of your junior year in high school.

RECRUITING CALENDARS Keep in mind that every sport has a different recruiting calendar. A coach in a particular sport may or may not be permitted to call you during certain times of the year.

You can also find the recruiting calendars for all sports on-line at www.ncaa.org.

Head Coach Steve Stratos

PROVEN SUCCESS Posting 16 winning seasons in 16 years, Coach Stratos has the Lions poised for a fourth straight NCAA appearance. In his 16 seasons as head coach of the L o y o l a Marymount women's volleyball program, Steve Stratos has maintained a high level of excellence throughout his program, both in the classroom and on the court. Having coached six All-Americans, as well as numerous academic all-conference selections, Stratos continues to maintain one of the top volleyball programs in the nation. In 1996, Stratos became the first coach in West Coast Conference history to be tabbed Coach of the Year three straight seasons after leading the Lions to their third consecutive conference title. In addition, he earned AVCA District VIII Coach of the Year honors after directing the 1996 squad to a 26-3 mark, advancing to the NCAA Pacific Regional Semifinals and a No. 9 final national 30 L M U

ranking, the highest finish in program history. His teams have averaged more than 20 wins a season and have made nine NCAA postseason appearances, including four consecutive in the NCAA Championships from 1994-97. Recently, the Lions have made three consecutive NCAA appearances in 2003, 2004, and 2005. Stratos has posted a career record of 324-153, for a .679 winning percentage, the highest in LMU volleyball history. In West Coast Conference action, he owns a record of 157-67, for a .701 winning percentage. With 157 career conference victories, Stratos ranks second all-time among WCC coaches. Stratos is currently a member of the AVCA Coaches Top 25 Poll Committee (since 1993) and is the WCC representative on the Pacific Regional Ranking Committee. He is also in his second term on the District VIII Regional Poll Committee (1995-96, 1999-present) and recently completed his service on the AllDistrict VIII Selection Committee, which he was a member of since 1996.

Winning has become a tradition for the LMU volleyball program. In a fiveyear span (1994-98), Stratos' teams combined for a string of 61-straight weeks being nationally-ranked in the AVCA/USA Today Top 25 Poll. Despite high expectations upon entering the 1998 season, the No. 25-ranked Lions were left out of the NCAA postseason tournament for the first time since 1993. They ended the 1998 regular season ranked No. 25 in the nation. Using 1998 as a learning experience, Stratos and the Lions jumped back into the NCAA tournament in 1999, advancing to the second round, and were ranked as high as No. 22 in the AVCA rankings (Sept.28). In 2000, Stratos and the Lions continued their pursuit of excellence by starting the season on a seven-match winning streak which propelled them to a seasonbest No. 21 AVCA ranking (Sept. 4). 2002 saw the Lions start the season with an 11-3 mark, which handed the program its 13th straight winning season under Stratos'.


2006 LMU

During Stratos' first season (1990), the Lions posted a 21-16 record and made a postseason appearance in the NIVC (National Invitational Volleyball Championship). In 1992, he led the team to its second NIVC appearance and a 22-13 record. The following year (1993), the Lions accumulated a 23-7 overall record and finished second in the WCC (11-3). For the first time in program history, LMU entered the nation’s top-25, ranked No. 24 in the AVCA Coaches’ Poll and No. 22 by Volleyball Monthly. In 1994, the Lions garnered the first of three consecutive WCC Championships with a 19-10 overall mark and a 12-2 conference record, earning a NCAA tournament appearance. Stratos led LMU to its second straight WCC title and NCAA tournament appearance in 1995 with a perfect 14-0 record, the first in school history. After their tremendous success in 1996, the Lions posted a 22-7 record the following year (1997) and again advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Under Stratos' guidance, the Lions won in the first round of the tournament with a 3-0 victory over the University of Hawaii. Stratos and the Lions put up three straight NCAA appearances again from 2003 to 2005, advancing to the second round in 2003 before falling to the eventual national champion. The 2004 campaign saw Stratos reach the 300 career win milestone in front of the home crowd at Gersten Pavilion. Stratos has turned the Lions' home court into one of the toughest places for opponents to visit, with a lively student section and exciting home schedules year after year. The Lions have enjoy a .744 overall and .761 WCC winning percentage in Gersten Pavilion under Coach Stratos. Success of the program has carried over into individual honors as well. Among the program's top athletes and graduates, Stratos coached Loyola Marymount's two AVCA All-America first-team honorees, Sarah Noriega (1994-97) and Sarah McFarland (199700). He has guided nine All-West Region players, 40 all-conference players, three WCC Freshmen of the Year and one Freshman AllAmerican. Stratos also coached Kelli Nerison (2000-2003) to one of the greatest breakthroughs in program history. After seeing brief playing time in a total of just 12 matches during the first two seasons of her career, Nerison went on to honorable mention AllAmerican performances as a junior and senior. As a senior, Collegiate Volleyball Update named her one of the nation's top five blockers. continued

A prominent part of the LMU volleyball roster, Sandy Krone has played in 77 matches over three years for the Lions. Now, as a senior, Krone was selected as co-captain and will look to lead the Lions to a fourth straight NCAA appearance. Joining the Lions from Sebastopol, Calif., Krone contributed right from the start of her career, playing in 31 of the team's 33 matches as a freshman. It was that rookie season that saw Krone post her career high for kills (13) and digs (20) in the Lions' 3-1 win over San Francisco. That was her first career statistical double-double. The 2004 season limited her to 17 matches due to injury, but she still managed to average 1.35 kills per game.

Despite the great success of her freshman season, it was Krone's junior season that was the best testament to her hard work. Following her third season, Krone was named LMU's Female Strength Athlete of the Year for her capabilities in the weight room. Working with Head Strength Coach Rick Stassi and the Frappier Acceleration Sports Training (FAST) program, Krone put up some significant results. Among 3500 college and professional female athletes in the program, Krone ranked in the 99th percentile in both positive and negative power and power production. In addition to her work in the weight room, Krone's efforts on the court have paid off too. She has developed into a well-rounded athlete who can play three positions. “Sandy's stock has risen a great deal because she can really

play three positions,” LMU Head Coach Steve Stratos said. “Her versatility allows us to put our best lineup on the floor.” After trying her at middle blocker last spring for the first time, Stratos expects her to be in the running for that starting job this fall. “She did very, very well at middle blocker this spring,” Stratos said.

HEATHER HUGHES “Our returning MVP, Heather is a player who can do everything well.”

JUMPING JUNIOR: Hughes returns to lead the Lions to a fourth straight NCAA appearance.

A Loyola Marymount University volleyball player took home the honor of LMU Female Athlete of the Year a second straight year, as Heather Hughes earned the selection last April. The achievement was especially significant for Hughes, who earned LMU Athletics' highest annual honor after just her sophomore season. “Our returning MVP, Heather is a player who can do everything well,” LMU Head Coach Steve Stratos said. He is right. Over her two seasons with the program, Lion fans have seen Hughes do a little of everything - and do it well. She earned honorable mention All-West Coast Conference recognition as a freshman after playing opposite. There, she ranked second on

36 L M U

the team in kills per game with 2.95 and led the team in service aces with 42. One of the team's primary passers, she tallied 277 digs. But during her sophomore season, Stratos and the Lions asked even more of the Fallbrook, Calif. native. She was to have a hand in the setting duties as well. Splitting her time between setting and playing opposite, Hughes continued to impress. She still tallied 370 kills, to go along with her 472 assists. She was the only player in the West Coast Conference last season to tally a statistical triple-double, and she did it five times. Hughes and teammate Christianna Reneau led the conference in double-doubles, with 18 each. Her 2005 efforts earned her a first-team All-WCC selection.

With the roster ready for the 2006 season, Stratos and the Lions are hoping to get Hughes back to her opposite position and let her work there full-time. But if not, Hughes' all-around play can help the Lions anywhere they need it most. “Heather is another one of those individuals who, although we see her starting as an opposite, could easily end up as a left side hitter.,” Stratos said. “She's done a great deal of setting for us as well.”

WCC Stat Leaders

2005wccreview hen the West Coast Conference first got its start back in 1952, the founders really had only one goal in mind… to create a convenient way for five Bay Area schools to play basketball. What has grown from that original vision is a cohesive athletics league which is competitive at the national level. The WCC is made up of eight private institutions in California, Oregon and Washington which compete at the NCAA Division 1 level in 13 different sports. The original five schools -- the University of San Francisco, Santa Clara University, Saint Mary's College, San Jose State Univeristy and the University of the Pacific -- expanded the membership in 1955 to include Pepperdine University and Loyola Marymount University in Southern California. At that time, the league changed its name from "California Basketball Association" to the "West Coast Athletic Conference." The current alignment, which also includes Gonzaga University, the University of Portland and the University of San Diego, has remained unchanged since 1978. Only two other conferences (the Pacific-10 and the Ivy League) have stayed together longer. The WCC, which changed its name to the current "West Coast Conference" in 1990, sponsors six championships for men in baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer and tennis and seven for women in basketball, cross country, golf, rowing, soccer, tennis and volleyball. The 2005-06 academic year was the most successful athletic season in WCC history. Two WCC teams (Portland women’s soccer, Pepperdine men’s tennis) won NCAA national championships, making the WCC one of only five Division I conferences to win multiple national titles this past year. Two WCC coaches were named the national Coach of the Year in Jon Wallace of Santa Clara (volleyball) and Adam Steinberg of Pepperdine (men's tennis). Two WCC student-athletes were named national Player of the Year in Christine Sinclair of Portland (women's soccer) and Adam Morrison of Gonzaga (men's basketball). Seven WCC teams advanced to at least the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA championships, and 23 different WCC teams earned national top-25 rankings during 2005-06. Finally, 36 WCC teams advanced to postseason play, representing all eight WCC member institutions.
