2007 LMU

VOLLEYBALL

The 2007 Lions:

THIS IS THE YEAR LMU volleyball returns six starters plus its libero. And Lion fans return with hope for a fourth NCAA appearance in five seasons.

After a 2006 season that saw Head Coach Steve Stratos coach his 500th career match and Heather Hughes earn All-West Coast Conference honors for the third straight year, the Loyola Marymount University volleyball team will look to return to the top of the West Coast Conference in 2007.

September 11 and October 23. Hughes and fellow junior Christianna Reneau both earned further WCC accolades, when they were named first-team and honorable mention selections respectively.

2006 Review

Stratos completed his 17th season at the helm of the program with a 17th straight winning season, coaching his 500th career match in the process. In his tenure at LMU, Stratos has led the Lions to nine 20-win seasons and 11 postseason appearances. He has posted a career record of 343-165, the most victories in LMU volleyball history and second among current WCC coaches. His .675 winning percentage also places him among the top-50 active Division I coaches. In conference play, he has accumulated 162 wins, which again ranks him second among active WCC coaches.

With an overall record of 19-12, the 2006 Lions posted their 17th consecutive winning season under Stratos. The Lions got off to an impressive start to their 2006 campaign, winning 12 of their first 15 matches, including a road victory over then-12th-ranked Santa Clara and a 10-match winning streak that lasted throughout most of September. LMU then hit some roadblocks during conference play in the highly competitive WCC, losing five matches to nationally-ranked opponents. Despite a 5-9 conference record, they were rewarded for some impressive individual performances. Three times in 2006, the Lions were awarded WCC Player of the Week honors, as Emily Day received the award on November 27, and Heather Hughes earned it twice, on 2 LMU

Head Coach Steve Stratos

Class of 2006 With the departure of graduated seniors Sandy Krone and Cat Svorinich, the Lions will have some major shoes to fill in 2007. Most notably, the Lions will be without the leadership of

Krone, the 2006 co-captain. Krone had the best season of her LMU career in 2006, starting 30 matches and posting career-highs in nearly every statistical category. She was also named the LMU Female Strength Athlete of the Year for the second consecutive year. Svorinich also had her most productive season for the Lions, playing in all but two matches seeing time at both setter and libero. The 2007 LMU Lions This year, led by a group of experienced and talented returners and a few highly-touted newcomers, the Lions will try to improve upon a sixth place finish in the WCC and return to the NCAA tournament. LMU will look to seniors and All-WCC selections Hughes and Reneau to continue the legacy of 17 consecutive winning seasons and get the Lions into the NCAA tournament for the fourth time in five seasons. Hughes and Reneau, the team leaders in digs and kills in 2006, highlight a veteran squad that also features seniors Ashley Dutro and Jania Motton, and juniors Day and Lauren Kirk, all of whom figure to be major contributors in 2007. continued


inittogether The core of the 2006 LMU squad returns for the run at the 2007 WCC title.


Newcomers Coach Stratos and his staff have put together a roster that includes three new options for the Lions in freshmen Whitney Leonard, Renee Horton, and Liberty McEntee. Leonard comes to the program from Archbishop Mitty High School, where she won a state championship in 2004. Leonard was an All-WCAL and AllAmerican libero last season, and will likely compete for the starting job. “We have been recruiting Whitney for many years knowing that she's one of the very best liberos in the nation in her class," Stratos said. “She has done nothing but win for the last three years, both at Archbishop Mitty and with her volleyball club. We are happy that she's bringing that experience with her into our program.” Horton is a setter from Wildomar, Calif., and will also likely compete for a starting position in 2007. She was a four-year varsity starter, a two-time All-Sunbelt League selection, and a first-team All-CIF selection. “Renee, as an incoming freshman, may be the best pure setter that we've ever had come into LMU,” Stratos said. “We've had a number of great setters in our program, and we feel that Renee is going to end up being one of the top setters by the time she leaves, in terms of her accomplishments.” Liberty McEntee also joins the Lions after an impressive high school career. A defensive specialist, McEntee started for three years at Rosary High School and was twice named All-Serra League. “Like Whitney and Renee, Liberty has a bright future in our program,” Stratos said. The 2007 LMU Lineup The three newcomers join a program that returns six starters plus the libero, losing just one starter to graduation in Krone. Although the 2007 Lions were picked to finish fourth in the WCC standings, this year's lineup gives them impressive depth at several positions and allows the coaches to consistently have veteran players on the court. Outside Hitter Familiar faces return to the Lions this year at outside hitter. Led by All-WCC honorable mention pick Reneau and WCC All-Academic selection Day, the returners give the coaches strong options outside. Reneau recorded double-digit kills in 28 of LMU's 31 matches last year and posted 13 statistical double-doubles. Meanwhile, Day reached the double-digit kill mark in 19 matches. Sophomore Morgan Kelly played in 10 matches last year and is another option outside for the Lions in 2007. Opposite The 2007 season will mark Hughes' fourth year as a starter for the Lions, and she will once again play opposite the setter. She led the team in kills, digs, and service aces in 2007. Hughes posted a team-high 20 double-doubles, and recorded double-digit kills in 24

consecutive matches. The first team All-WCC selection is the Lions' sparkplug and team leader on the floor. Setter LMU fans will be able to enjoy the battle for the starting setter position in 2007, because the Lions have two talented options in the senior Dutro and freshman Horton. Dutro took over the primary setting duties last season and went on to lead the team in assists. She had double-digit assists in every match, and eclipsed the 40-assist mark 10 times. Horton comes in to the program highly-touted, and the coaches feel that she is a very gifted setter who will have an immediate impact on the program. Defensive Specialist/Libero The Lions find themselves with an impressive amount of depth at the defensive specialist position this year. Lauren Kirk was the primary libero in 2006 and enters this season as the favorite for the starting job. She tallied double-digit digs in 11 matches. Kirk will compete with a talented crop of young players that includes newcomers Leonard and McEntee. Returning sophomore Tina Moger will also likely see time as a defensive specialist. Middle Blocker The Lions have several veteran options at middle blocker this season. Senior Jania Motton and sophomore Megan Nash both saw substantial time starting in the middle in 2006. Motton was second among the Lions in blocks and Nash was second in attack percentage in 2006. They will likely be joined in the middle by returners Erin Downey, Lindsay Banas, and Becky Stehling, in what should be a deep position for the Lions in 2007. 2007 Schedule Lion fans always see an impressive schedule for LMU volleyball, and this year will be no different. The Lions will play eight matches against teams ranked in the 2007 AVCA Preseason Top-25 poll, and 12 matches against teams that qualified for last year's NCAA tournament. An additional five matches will come against teams earning votes in the preseason poll. The Lions will play in four tournaments again this season, two of which they will host at Gersten Pavilion, where the Lions posted a 12-5 record in 2006. LMU will also travel to USC and Pacific for tournaments against some of the nation's top teams. The tournament setting has proved a lucrative one for the Lions recently, as LMU has racked up a 9-0 record on neutral floors since 2004. And as always, the Lions will also have to contend with a tough schedule in the extremely competitive West Coast Conference. For four straight seasons, at least three WCC programs have qualified for the NCAA tournament. In 2007, LMU will look to be among that group as they begin their quest for a fifth WCC crown.

setup ASHLEY DUTRO The Lions’ returning starting setter will look to run an LMU offense that ranked 20th in the nation in kills in 2006.

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.

She had a 52-kill performance at home against No.14 Ohio State on Sept. 10, 1999, a mark that came just four shy of the NCAA five-game record of 56 kills and led her to her first of two career AVCA National Player of the Week awards. Overall, she holds five NCAA national records, the most by any one player.

McFarland’s and Noriega’s NCAA Records Loyola Marymount volleyball holds more NCAA Division I individual records than any other school in the nation. Sarah McFarland and Sarah Noriega are a large part of that achievement, still holding six national records between the two of them.

LMU Head Coach Steve Stratos holds high standards of excellence for his teams and players. One way to recognize his former players as exceptional athletes is with the Wall of Fame, which continues to grow in his office.

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.

fans in attendance, it was the largest Gersten Pavilion volleyball crowd since LMU hosted the playoffs during the 1996 Sweet Sixteen season. Built to accommodate the 1984 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, at that time, 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.

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.

LMUfacts • average GPA for incoming freshmen is 3.62 • over 70% of students receive financial aid • student housing: 16 residence halls for 2,898 • LMU has a highly diverse student population: nearly 1,000 Asians, nearly 500 African Americans, and about 1,400 Latinos • founding communities: Society of Jesus (Jesuits); Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary (Marymount Sisters); Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange (CSJ)


2007 LMU

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. • The COLLEGE OF SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING is committed to delivering science, engineering, and mathematics education through individual attention with emphasis on selflearning, service to society, and ethical behavior. Students experience close interactions with the faculty as a result of small class sizes. Students conduct sophisticated state-of-theart research by working closely with their professors, and they participate in various student research conferences and design competitions. • 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.

buildingchampions 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’s and women's water polo compete in the Western Water Polo Association. Women's softball competes in the Pacific Coast Softball Conference BO KIMBLE while the 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 Athletics Director Dr. William Husak took the reigns of the program in 1998, the Lions have sent 32 teams to the NCAA tournament while winning 22 conference championships in the process. With the success, 52 individual student-athletes have earned AllAmerica honors since 2000.

1986 COLLEGE WORLD SERIES

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 1985-1990. 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 basketball 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. 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 2007-08 season, 14 Lions currently play professional baseball with an MLB organization, 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. Over the years, nine former women's volleyball players have played professionally, including 2000 Olympian Sarah Noriega. The 1996 first-team All-American was just one Lion to make an appearance in the Olympics. This past 2004 Summer Olympics former and three-time 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 fellow water polo player Katie Hicks made the U.S. National Team roster in 2006. Nearly 100 years ago, the Lions began Building Champions.The work continues in 2007-08.

lmuathleticsfacilities The athletic facilities at Loyola Marymount University have seen a little of everything in the almost 80 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 entrance to baseball’s Page Stadium. Most recently joining the family of facilities 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 and the home of Lion volleyball is ALBERT GERSTEN PAVILION, entering its 26th 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 Pavilion 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 26th 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 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 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 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.

administration UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT

ATHLETICS 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 is in his 10th 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 nine 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 22 conference championships and 32 NCAA postseason appearances. Off the field, the Lions have had a 50 percent increase in national scholar-athletes as 155 claimed the honor in the 2006-07 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 34 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 80 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.

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. On or after July 1 after the completion of your junior year in high school, a college coach is permitted to call you only one time per week. Exception for Men's Basketball ONLY Only in the sport of men's basketball, a college coach (but not a booster) is permitted to call you (or your parents or legal guardians) one time per month on or after June 15 of your sophomore year in high school through July 31 of your junior year in high school. Coaches are permitted to call you two (2) times per week on or after August 1 prior to your senior year in high school. For junior college and four-year transfer prospects, you may only receive one phone call per week, regardless of the time period. Exception for Women's Basketball ONLY Only in the sport of women's basketball, a college coach (but not a booster) is permitted to call you (or your parents or legal guardians) one time during each of the months of April and May of your junior year in high school. You can receive one call on or after June 1 through June 20, and you can receive one call on or after June 21 through June 30 of your junior year in high school. In addition, you can receive three phone calls during the month of July following your junior year in high school, with no more than one call per week. On or after August 1 prior to your senior year in high school, you can receive no more than one phone call per week. Unlimited Phone Calls - All Sports Unlimited phone calls can be made to you (or your parents or legal guardians) by a college coach ONLY under the following circumstances: (1) during the five days immediately before your official visit by the college you will be visiting; (2) on the day of a coach's off-campus contact with you by that coach; (3) on the initial date for signing the National Letter of Intent in your sport through two days after the initial signing date; and (4) you (or your parents or legal guardians) may telephone a coach at your expense as often as you wish. At the completion of your junior

In men's basketball ONLY, coaches may accept a toll-free call from you no earlier than the conclusion of your sophomore 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. When you do speak to a college coach, be sure to ask about the recruiting calendar so you understand when you can accept phone calls from college coaches. You can also find the recruiting calendars for all sports on-line at www.ncaa.org. OFF-CAMPUS CONTACTS In all Sports Other Than Football and Basketball A college coach is permitted to contact you in person off the college campus only on or after July 1 after the completion of your junior year in high school. A contact is any face-to-face meeting between a college coach or athletics staff member and you or your parents, during which any of you say more than "hello." Also, any such face-to-face meeting that is prearranged or that takes place on your campus, at an organized competition or practice involving you or your high school, preparatory school, twoyear college or all-star team shall be considered a contact, regardless of the conversation. Currently in all sports other than football, college coaches may contact you off the college campus no more than three times. However, a college coach may visit your high school (with the approval of your high school principal) only once a week during a contact period. Junior college prospects who are non-qualifiers as determined by the NCAA Clearinghouse may not be recruited until they have completed one academic year at the junior college. In Men's Basketball A college coach is not permitted to contact you prior to the opening day of classes of your senior year in high school.

During the academic year, a college coach is limited to five recruiting opportunities with you (contacts and evaluations combined) with no more than three in-person, off-campus contacts at any site during your senior year in high school. This restriction includes your relatives or legal guardians, but does not include any contact made during your official visit to campus. Further, all communication between you, your relatives, legal guardians, your coach, or anyone else involved with your participation in basketball, directly or indirectly, and a college coach during the month of July is prohibited. EVALUATIONS An evaluation is any off-campus activity used to assess your academic qualifications or athletics ability, including a visit to your high school (during which no contact occurs) or watching you practice or compete at any site.

Head Coach Steve Stratos

PROVEN SUCCESS Posting 17 winning seasons in 17 years, Coach Stratos has the Lions poised for a fourth NCAA appearance in five years. In his 17 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 Sweet Sixteen and a No. 9 final national ranking, the 30 L M U

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 made three straight NCAA appearances in 2003, 2004, and 2005. Stratos has posted a career record of 343-165, for a .675 winning percentage, the highest in LMU volleyball history. That mark also ranks him 42nd in the nation among active NCAA DIvision I head coaches. In West Coast Conference action, he owns a record of 162-76, for a .681 winning percentage. With 162 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


2007 LMU

under Stratos. 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 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 enjoyed a .742 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, 41 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

game. The Lions’ 16.53 digs per game also ranked second in the WCC. 3 The Lions post 3-0 sweeps over 2006 NCAA Tournament teams Florida A&M and then-12th-ranked Santa Clara on the road. 4 Coach Stratos coaches his 500th career match October 27 against Gonzaga. 5 The Lions sweep Pepperdine 3-0 in Gersten Pavilion. The match was played in honor of Lion alumna Kim Blankinship (1993-96), who had passed away at the age of 31 earlier that week. Blankinship was wearing a Lion uniform the last time LMU had swept the Waves in 1995. 6 Junior Heather Hughes becomes the ninth Lion all-time to reach the 1,000 career kill mark against San Francisco on October 14. 7 The Lions take home tournament titles at the Miami Hurricane Invitational and the LMU Four Points Sheraton-LAX Classic. 8 Heather Hughes highlights the Lions’ All-WCC selections, as she is named to the first-team. 9 Emily Day is a WCC All-Academic pick for success on the court and in the classroom.

9 TRACY HOLMAN Holman set the all-time career LMU assist record with 5,362. After leading the Lions to their third-straight WCC title as a junior, Holman garnered Volleyball Magazine All-American honorable mention accolades. She was a four-time All-WCC first-team selection and 1994 WCC Freshman of the Year. She was the WCC and LMU Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 1998, an honor she also earned at LMU in 1997.

14 SARAH McFARLAND McFarland was LMU’s first two-time All-American, while also being named the school’s Female Athlete of the Year twice.
