With Adair’s first full recruiting class completely through the system, the Lions will be without a core group of 10 graduated seniors who turned the program from a an eighthplace finisher in 2004 to a Conference Champion in 2007-08. Fortunately for LMU, those swimmers have passed the torch to the next generation, leaving the program at its highest point and setting the bar for continued excellence this year. Adair will once again be assisted by Clay Evans and Joanne Reierson. THE LOOK BACK The Lions are coming off their best season in

the history of the program, highlighted by a first PCSC Championship, six new school records and four PCSC event titles. LMU concluded the 2007-08 regular season with a perfect 9-0 record in dual action, marking the programs fourth straight winning season under coach Adair. The nine dual victories are the highest in program history, and mark the first time that the Lions have gone undefeated in a season. LMU swimming posted its best finish at the PCSC Championship, finishing first of 14 teams with 1212 points. After posting an LMU-record five swimmers on the All-Conference team in 2006-07, the Lions responded by more than doubling that total with an unbelievable 11 All-Conference swimmers in 2007-08. Graduated seniors Angela Samuels and Alex Wike, current seniors Rebecca Plume and Megan Sawelson, current juniors Alexa Cook, Mallorie Lim, Kristen Lutjen, Trinity O’Neill, Melanie Tansuwan and Alicia Witter, and current sophomore Carolyn Pasque 1Ê-܈““ˆ˜}ÊUÊÓÊUÊÓäänÊ* - Ê …>“«ˆœ˜Ã

were all named to the prestigious list. Wike was also named to the PCSC All-Academic team, an honor bestowed to junior and senior swimmers with a 3.5 GPA or better. Joining Wike on the list were fellow graduate Nicole Alvarado and current senior Justine Elgas. The team of Witter, Samuels, Lim and Wike claimed the first of four PCSC titles last season after winning the 200 medley relay, a race that LMU has dominated over recent years at the PCSC Championships. The team touched the wall in 1:45.70. Plume, who was voted Swimmer of the Year by her peers last season, won the 500 freestyle event in a new LMU program record of 4:56.59, one of four records set by Plume at the Championships. Wike claimed her title of fastest in the 50 freestyle with a mark of 23.89 before Witter took home the final individual title with a time of 51.80 in the 100 freestyle.

THE GRADUATES Wike and Samuels completed fantastic careers for the Lions last season, with both claiming a spot in the LMU record books. Wike, in addition to her individual title in the 50 freestyle and her leg in the 200 medley relay, holds school records as a part of the 200 medley relay (2007 - 1:44.24), 200 freestyle relay (2008 - 1:35.76) and 400 freestyle relay (2006 - 3:30.21). Samuels, who served a vital part in the 200 medley relay Championship swim, holds an individual LMU record in the 100 butterfly (2005 - 57.63). She also was a part of the LMU record times in the 200 medley relay (2007 1:44.24) and 400 medley relay (2006 - 3:50.45). The Lions also bid adieu to former Team Captain Alvarado, Kristina Fernandez, Alyssa Geraghty, Christine Gore, Liz Magura, Kim McKay and Alicia Royal, all of whom played essential roles in the Lions’ first PCSC Championship run.

THE SOPHOMORES The sophomore class, coming off of a strong freshman season, will be led by All-Conference standout Carolyn Pasque. Pasque was an All-Conference selection for her fourth-place finish in the 50 freestyle and her fifth-place finish in the 100 freestyle. She was also a member of LMU’s record-setting 200 freestyle relay. Her times place her in the Top-10 All-Time in the 50, 100 and 200 freestyle. Maeghan Cobbin and Katie Carmody will also serve vital roles as sophomores.

2008-09 LIONS’ MEDIA GUIDE

THE SENIORS In the upcoming season, leading the way for the seniors will be Plume, Julia Hall, Danielle Garcia and Sawelson, four swimmers that have had a huge impact on the program in previous years. Plume is coming off a season in which she was named PCSC Champion in the 500 freestyle and was named to the PCSC All-Conference team. The leading scorer for LMU at the PCSC Championships, she set a total of four new LMU records at the event last season, including times in the 200, 500, 1,000 and 1,650 freestyle. In addition, her 1,000 freestyle record was set on the way out to the 1,650 time, and broke her previous record by over 15 seconds. Hall enters her senior year having already cemented herself on the All-Time Top-10 list in the 500, 1,000 and 1,650 freestyles, and the 400 IM. She was a Conference finalist in the 400 IM and 1,650 freestyle last year. Garcia likewise holds Top-10 positions in the 100, 200 and 500 freestyle events, and has been a Conference finalist in all three of those events since her freshman year. In just her first season at LMU, Sawelson claimed PCSC All-Conference honors after swimming a vital leg in LMU’s record 200 freestyle relay at the PCSC Championships. Her swims at the Championships in the 50, 100 and 200 freestyle events all placed her in LMU’s All-Time Top-10 in those races. Elgas and Gillian Ghazal will also return and be expected to provide depth and leadership as seniors.

THE JUNIORS The junior class is led by a handful of PCSC All-Conference selections, including Cook, Lim, Lutjen, O’Neill, Tansuwan and Witter, all of whom are expected to continue to thrive this year for the Lions. Cook was a part of the record-breaking 200 freestyle relay squad last season, and holds a spot on the All-Time LMU Top-10 list in the 50 and 100 freestyle. Lim helped LMU to another PCSC victory in the 200 medley relay, and ranks in the Top10 in the 100 backstroke and 100 butterfly events. A strong backstroker, Lutjen places in the All-Time Top-10 in the 100 and 200 backstroke, and the 200 IM. O’Neill, a two-time PCSC All-Conference selection, set a new program record last season in the 400 IM at the Nike Invitational. Already an LMU-record holder in two events (200 butterfly and 400 IM), she also places in the Top-10 in the 500 freestyle, 1,000 freestyle, 1,650 freestyle, 200 breaststroke, 100 butterfly, and 200 IM. Tansuwan turned-in the best Lion time of the season in the 200 IM at the PCSC Championships en route to her All-Conference bid. She finished third in the 200 butterfly, fourth in the 200 IM and sixth in the 100 butterfly at the Championships. Tansuwan currently places in the Top-10 in the 100 breaststroke, 200 breaststroke, 100 butterfly, 200 butterfly and 200 IM. Finally, Witter won her first individual Conference Title last season, taking the crown in the 100 freestyle. She joined Wike as the only two Lions to record two titles last year, serving a vital role as leadoff in the 200 medley relay. An LMU record-holder in the 800 freestyle relay, she ranks in the Top-10 in six events (100 freestyle, 200 freestyle, 500 freestyle, 1,650 freestyle, 100 backstroke, 200 backstroke). Katie Mistry, a butterfly specialist, will also add depth for the Lions as a junior.

THE NEWCOMERS Relays will once again be a high point for the Lions, who have dominated the conference in the 200 medley relay for four years straight, breaking and re-breaking the PCSC record on nearly a yearly basis. This year, with the addition of junior transfer, Anne Scott, and an abundance of new freshman talent, LMU looks to replenish the wealth that has been lost with the departure of the seniors from last season. High school All-Americans Tammy Choy and Kyla Dahlquist, Christina Cannata, Jill Dahle, Casey Flacks, Michelle Horgan, Yvonne Le, Kara O’Neill, Olivia Plume, Terry Rinder and Erin Rosas are all freshmen who are eager to show their talents at the next level of competition.

THE SCHEDULE This year’s team will be on the road more than any Lion team in the past as they host only one dual meet at Burns Aquatics Center. LMU will compete against Cal State Bakersfield, Pacific and Fresno Pacific in Bakersfield, Calif. on November 1 before traveling to UC San Diego, Northern Arizona, San Diego and Cal State Bakersfield for dual meets later in the year. The only home meet on LMU’s schedule this season is against New Mexico State on December 19 at 11 a.m. The season will open on October 10 with a two-day PCSC kickoff event hosted by Cal Baptist University in Riverside, Calif. Friday will be a relay competition among PCSC schools that will field teams in 12 different relay events. The following day, swimmers throughout the PCSC will compete in a swimming pentathlon, choosing from one of three five-event series of races. After taking part in the PCSC kick-off, LMU will compete at the Malibu Invitational on October 25 before heading to Bakersfield, Calif. on November 1. Following a 19-day hiatus from competition, the Lions will close the month of November at the Nike Cup (formerly the Speedo Cup) from November 20-22. The three-day event has included some of the top teams in the western United States including Pac-10 powerhouses Stanford and USC in the past. Last year the Lions placed in the Top-10 for the second

consecutive season, finishing in 10th place out of 22 teams. December 2009 will start the “dual-meet” portion of the season. LMU will hold its lone home meet on December 19 to start things off, followed by meets against UC San Diego on January 10, Northern Arizona on January 17, San Diego and Fresno State on January 31, and Cal State Bakersfield on February 7 to close the regular season. All of these competitions will be tune-ups for the PCSC Championship set for February 18 at Belmont Plaza Pool in Long Beach, Calif. 14 women’s teams will compete for the team title, as LMU will stride to repeat as Conference Champion for the second consecutive season. UC San Diego and Pepperdine will once again provide tough competition for the Lions, as will the University of North Dakota, who was recently added to the Conference. With each year, the LMU swim program has gained momentum. This season, the Lions look to repeat last year’s success and make LMU history by taking the PCSC Title in consecutive seasons. With the strength and depth of the program where it currently stands, there seems to be endless possibility for LMU this season.

BONNIE ADAIR Head Coach UÊSixth Season

A

2008-09 LIONS

fter becoming the first full-time women’s swimming coach at LMU, Bonnie Adair enters her sixth season with the Lions, having been named 2008 Pacific Collegiate Swimming Conference Coach of the Year. Adair joined the LMU program in 2002-03 with a 35-year background in swimming. In her first season as a full-time head coach, Adair added 17 newcomers to the program’s roster, which doubled the team’s size and jump-started the new era of LMU

swimming. Since her arrival, Adair has turned the LMU program into a contender for the Pacific Collegiate Swimming Conference Championship, culminating in LMU’s first title in 2008. The Lions finished third in the conference in 2005 and set 16 of 19 school records in a history-making season. LMU earned its first two conference event titles in 2005, winning both the 200 medley relay (Lauren Mathewson, Morgan Finley, Angela Samuels, Katie Hicks) and the 100 backstroke (Mathewson). The 2005-06 Lions added four more PCSC titles, winning the 200 medley relay (Mathewson, Sarah Hamilton, Samuels, Hicks), the 100 freestyle (Hicks), the 100 breaststroke (Hamilton) and the 100 backstroke (Mathewson). LMU posted a dual record of 9-5 in that season, marking the second straight winning season under Adair.

2008-09 LIONS’ MEDIA GUIDE

Highlighted by 11 new school records and four PCSC event titles, Loyola Marymount finished second of 14 teams in the conference at the 2006-07 PCSC Championship. The team finished 7-5 in dual meets to extend Adair’s winning-season streak to three straight. PCSC Championship triple winner Mathewson, along with teammates Morgan Finley, Alex Wike, Trinity O’Neill, and Samuels were selected to the PCSC All-Conference team. Senior Amanda Luciano was named to the PCSC All-Academic team. Mathewson’s three event titles came in the 50 freestyle, 100 backstroke, and 200 backstroke, earning her PCSC Swimmer of the Year honors. She was also a member of the 200 medley relay, along with Finley, Samuels and Wike, which shattered the existing meet record by over a second en route to the Lion victory. In 2008, Adair made it four straight winning seasons, turning in a perfect 9-0 record in dual meets en route to her first PCSC Coach of the Year selection. The perfect record marked the first time in school history that a team had gone undefeated. Adair and the Lions capped the outstanding season with a first-place finish at the PCSC Championships, posting a school-record 11 swimmers on the AllConference Team. Alex Wike claimed the top-spot in the 50 freestyle, Rebecca Plume won the 500 freestyle and Alicia Witter took home the individual title in the 100 freestyle event. During her own 13-year swimming career, she set 35 National Age Group records including a 50m freestyle record that stood for 29 years. Competing in 12 National Championships (her first at age 13) and two Olympic Trials, Adair became a National finalist in the 100 free and 100 fly and a member of a 400-meter medley relay that established four American records.

She attended UCLA as an undergraduate and then Loyola Law School. During law school, Adair was the assistant coach of the UCLA women’s swim team and also coached the Team Santa Monica age group team. In 1979, Adair, along with current LMU assistant Clay Evans, created the Santa Monica Masters Swim Team, which later became SCAQ - now the largest Masters program in the United States with over 900 active members. In their 30 years coaching together, it is estimated that Adair and Evans have coached or instructed 20,000 Los Angeles-area swimmers. Between 1985 and 1994, Adair came out of swimming retirement to compete in several Masters National Championships and World Games and set national and world records in the freestyle sprint events and 100 and 200 IMs. She has contributed swimming articles to SWIM Magazine and Fitness Swimmer Magazine and was honored as the United States Masters Coach of the Year in 1997. From 1996-1999, Adair was the head coach of the men’s and women’s swimming teams at Santa Monica College, where she earned the Western State Conference Women’s Coach of the Year award in 1997. In 1998, her women’s team tied for the conference title and placed sixth in the state. Her men’s team also earned a sixth place finish. Adair currently resides in West Los Angeles.

INSIDE LMU

LMU Mission statements and facts:

A Solid Foundation University Mission AND Identity Loyola Marymount’s Mission and Goals Statement, approved by the Board of Trustees in 1990, succinctly states in its preamble the university’s three-fold mission: * The encouragement of learning * The education of the whole person * The service of faith and the promotion of justice These often quoted phrases are at the heart of the campus community’s communal self-understanding. When unpacked, they tell us much about LMU’s identity as a Catholic, Jesuit/Marymount university

Athletics Department Mission The mission of the department is to provide an environment for student-athlete development that supports the pursuit of the highest level of success athletically and academically for the growth of the whole person in the tradition of the Jesuit and Marymount ideals. The purpose of the Intercollegiate Athletics Program at Loyola Marymount University is to support the overall mission, goals and objectives of the University by complimenting its primary academic pursuits with championship sports programs. Additionally, Loyola Marymount University Athletics supports “Pursuing Victory with Honor”.

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. To help you toward your ideal career, LMU offers a network of loyal alumni. “Even the summer after graduation, I am already aware of the benefits that LMU alumni networking offers,” says a new alum. “When we leave the undergraduate family, it’s as if we graduate into an even larger family that offers constant support.”

Loyola Marymount University is striving in offering our student/athletes an exceptional individualized experience during their time on campus. “The philosophy of the program is to develop the student-athlete potential through training routines specific to the athletes’ sports.

said Boerica. “Life and sports are about opportunities, commitment and rewards. There are ample opportunities to participate in sports, but athletes need to realize that with these opportunities, they need to commit to being the best they can be,” said Boerica, who took over the program in 2007. “This takes hard work and determination from each individual to optimize their individual talents and abilities. This commitment and dedication leads to secondary benefits of physical and mental fitness as well as the rewards of participation in sports. Every athlete has the opportunity to succeed by using the FAST program but their commitment to go the extra mile turns into life-long rewards on and off the field.”

Building Champions. T

he athletics 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 athletics facilities have become home to the best and it continues to get better. Thanks to continued commitment by the University, the Athletics Complex over the next two years will show lots of growth. It started this summer when the University allocated office and meeting space to Lion Athletics within the Dorothy and Thomas E. Leavey Center on the Westchester campus. The Leavey Center will become home to 15 of the Lions’ 21 varsity program in the newly remodeled and modern office complex. With six suites on two floors in the heart of the LMU campus, Athletics at Leavey joins an impressive list of facilities. At the center is Albert Gersten Pavilion, home to LMU basketball, volleyball and the administrative offices. The facility also includes the Academics Center, the LMU Training Room, LMU Weight Room, locker room facilities, and LMU Media Room - all of which will undergo renovations over the next two years. In addition to Gersten Pavilion, the complex includes George Page Stadium, Sullivan Field, the Burns Recreation and Aquatics Center, the Jane Bove Boathouse, Smith Field, the LMU Tennis Complex and the Thomas Higgins Short Game Center. Each facility has undergone modifications and improvements since 2000, including the newest competition venue on campus, Smith Field, which opened in 2006. Other competitive venues have been added in the last 10 years, including the George P. Kading and Morris A. Pivaroff Tournament Court at the LMU Tennis Center in 2004, the Boathouse in 2002 and the Burns Aquatics Center in 2001. In addition to the playing “fields,” other facilities have been added to enhance the Athletics’ Complex. The Higgins Short Game Center was completed in 2006 for the men’s golf team.

Lion Game Day:

Feel the Roar. ORIGIN OF THE LION

LIONPRIDE

Although its origin is somewhat clouded, the Lion mascot has been synonymous with Loyola Marymount University for more than 70 years. According to the Oct. 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 player’s fierce competitiveness, that unknown fan described the Loyola players as Lions. The name did not generate too much popularity and the Loyola athletic nickname remained “Loyolan’s” 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, the college opted to give the Lion’s 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 very day. An alternative origin story traces 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.

This organization is the official student booster club of LMU athletics. Seen throughout the athletic season, LionPride has been a major reason for record student attendance the last several years. With more than 1,000 members this year, LionPride will be a factor at LMU events. Open to all students enrolled at LMU, LionPride offers free admission to all home regular season athletic events, opportunity to participate in in-game promotions, drawings for valuable prizes and much, much more, including the LionPride T-Shirt.

INSIDE LMU history of lmu athletics:

Decades of Champions.

1890 – 1910 Then known as St. Vincent’s College, the school is known on record as having a football team and a basketball team. The year 1889 is shown to be the first game of football while the 1906 season was the first for basketball. The records show the Lions going 5-0 as a basketball team in 1906. 1910-1930 Loyola College was founded in 1911 as an outgrowth of St. Vincent’s College, the first college in Los Angeles. In 1924 the College opened a new gym on the old St. Vincent’s campus. A year later the Lions post first season with double-digit wins in basketball, going 10-7 in the 1924-25 season. Coached by Harold “Bill” Hess, the Lions had wins over Woodbury Business College, Cal Tech and the Hollywood All-Stars. In the fall of 1925, George Casey became the third head coach of St. Vincent’s, finishing his only year as coach 6-5. In 1926 the school plays in first overtime game, a 20-16 loss to Whittier. They win their first overtime game a year later, a 16-14 victory against California Christian College. Then in 1928, the then Loyola College moved to its current location on the Westchester bluff and two years later became Loyola University. Loyola Law School, located in downtown Los Angeles, was founded in 1920. 1930s In the 1930s Loyola established its new campus on the bluff in Westchester while basketball greats Pete Newell and Phil Woolpert began their legendary careers as Lions. While Loyola discontinues the men’s basketball program for four seasons during the great depression, it is hockey of all sports that emerges as Loyola’s top program, thanks in large part to the use of its football players as hockey players. The first college hockey league started in 1927 and while increasing in popularity, it became part of the official athletic program of multiple southern California schools, thus the formation of the Southern California Intercollegiate Hockey League. USC dominated the league, winning 36 straight before Loyola, led by Head Coach Tom Lieb, snapped that streak on March 6 of 1932, beginning one of fiercer rivalries of its day. Then in the 1934-35 season, the Lions knocked off USC in the prestigious Yosemite Tournament for the first time and then went on to defeat the Trojans for Loyola’s first conference crown. As the league grew, the main attraction continued to be the games between Loyola and USC, “as the two teams were in a class by themselves.” The 1935-36 season was the year college hockey really caught on. The final game between Loyola and USC for the Pacific

The Lions men’s basketball team advanced to their first collegiate sponsored postseason tournament, competing for the NAIA National Championship. The Lions posted a 16-9 record and were selected to participate in the NAIA Tournament where they faced San Francisco State in the first round. With a 57-56 win, the Lions moved on to face Southwestern (KS) in the second round. South1940s In 1941, the Lions face in-town rival Pepperdine for western won, 83-79. Then in 1956, the Lions joined the first time in the two program’s histories. They faced the California Basketball Association, which two years each other twice in the 1940-41 season, with Loyola later formed the West Coast Athletic Conference. winning both, 30-18 and 43-23. In that season, both Pete Newell and Phil Woolpert suited up for the Lions. The two Loyola greats went on to become legends in the coaching profession, leading college teams to NCAA National Championships. In 1948-1949, Loyola went on to its first 20-win season, posting a 22-14 record under coach Scotty McDonald. The Lions would see their longest winning streak at that time of 10 games. The season included the first game in Alumni Gymnasium, the Lions’ home until the 1981-82 season when the Lions moved to Gersten Pavilion. Coast title was a double overtime thriller in front of 4,000 fans. The Lions won their second PCHC championship in a row. The Lions would then win their third league title in a row in a three-game playoff in 1937, winning two games to one. With World War II on the horizon, Loyola would drop hockey in 1941 and college hockey in Southern California would slowly break apart.

1950s The 1950s started with one of best football seasons in school history as the team, led by future NFL star Don Klosterman, finished the season 8-1, losing to Santa Clara 28-26 and missing out on a trip to the Orange Bowl. Klosterman would go on to earn All-America honors in 1952.

Capping 2007 was women’s water polo as the Lions won their sixth WWPA Championship in seven years and finish the season ranked seventh in the nation. Senior Stacia Peterson is named WWPA Player of the Year, Third-Team All-American and becomes just the seventh student-athlete overall and just the second female to earn CoSIDA Academic All-American honors. In the fall of 2007, the LMU men’s water polo team won their fifth WWPA title in seven years despite the youngest roster in program history. The Lions defeated UC Davis 7-6 in the title game as freshmen Tibor Forai and Andy Stevens along with junior Mark Milovic earned All-America honors. Also in the 2007-08 season, the women’s swimming program overcame a huge deficit thanks to not fielding a diving team to claim their first Pacific Coast Swim Conference Championship. The Lions completed their first perfect season at 9-0 while Rebecca Plume, Alex Wike and Alicia Witter earned individual conference titles. All told, 11 swimmers earned All-PCSC honors in 2008. Capping the year was the women’s rowing team as their Lightweight 4 team claimed its third IRA national title with a convincing victory on Cooper River in Camden, NJ. The Lion boat of seniors Jill Austin, Jen Glassman, and Jennifer Guess (cox), along with freshmen Liz LaLonde and Mary Foster, brought home the gold 12 seconds ahead of defending champion Princeton.

The Lions most recent success was seen from their softball program as they finished its 2007 season with

INSIDE LMU

director of athletics

Dr. William S. Husak F

or Dr. William S. Husak life is all about family and his 11 years as the Athletics Director at Loyola Marymount University reflects his familyfirst approach to life. And that approach has brought success never before seen at LMU. Since taking over the program in 1998, 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 family 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 new and updated facilities, increased scholarship and operational support and enhancing the coaching and support staff. The past 11 years have been some of the most successful seasons in school history as the Lions won over 55 percent of its dual competitions in that span and claimed the school’s first ever Commissioner’s Cup in 1996. Since 1998, LMU has claimed 24 conference championships and 30 NCAA postseason appearances. Off the field, the Lions have had a 65 percent increase in national scholar-athletes as 210 claimed the honor in the 2007-08 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 450 studentathletes 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 10 brand new staff positions, which included an athletic academic coordinator, marketing/promotions manager, ticket manager, corporate relations manager, two assistant athletic trainers, a two strength and conditioning assistant coaches, a assistant compliance director and an assistant media relations director. The final major piece to LMU Athletics’ growth and success has been Husak’s commitment to facilities. Since he has taken over, $30 million has been

put into athletic facilities. That list includes the Burns Aquatics Center, which was used as host to the 2002 and 2006 NCAA Men’s Water Polo Championships. It has been the only time LMU has hosted an NCAA championship. Facility enhancements have also included the brand new Smith Field (softball), Thomas Higgins Short Game Center (golf), the Morris A. Pivaroff and George P. Kading Tournament Court (tennis), and the Jane Browne Bove Boathouse. LMU’s existing facilities have also seen their share of growth, including new bleachers and scoreboard to Sullivan Field (soccer), Mikos Blue Monster and Pride Park to Page Stadium (baseball), and a new sound system, floor design and bleachers in Gersten Pavilion. More is on its way as the University committed more than 7,000 square feet for coaches office at the Leavey Center. In addition, plans for the next 18 months include a new weight training facility with locker room and storage space and new locker room suites in Gersten Pavilion, including new stateof-the-art areas for men’s and women’s basketball. 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 37 years, Tish, live in Long Beach and have three sons, Greg, Todd and Jon. LMU Swimming Óään‡ä™Êi`ˆ>ÊՈ`i

INSIDE LMU NCAA Compliance

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 Eligibility Center. To register, you must go on-line to www.ncaaclearinghouse.net. You will need a major credit card to complete the registration. The fee is $60 for domestic prospects ($85 for foreign prospects). The Eligibility Center evaluates your academic records as well as your amateurism status to determine whether or not you are eligibile to play Division I or II sports. You will be required to designate all high schools you have attended and answer a series of questions relating to your status as an amateur. Once you’ve completed the registration and answered the amateurism questions, you will need to have each of the high schools you have attended supply an official copy of your transcripts directly to the Eligibility Center. You will also need to arrange to have your standardized test scores sent directly from the testing agency to the NCAA Eligibility Center. This BASIC INFORMATION QUESTIONS? Should you have any questions regarding any NCAA rules, please contact our Compliance Office at (310) 338-7789 or you can contact the NCAA at (317) 917-6222.

I Want to Play at LMU... must be done directly from the testing agency’s website. The NCAA Eligibility Center routing code is 9999. If you have questions, you or your high school counselor can obtain assistance by calling the NCAA Eligibility Center at (317) 223-0700. After you graduate and before school closes for the summer, your counselor must send a copy of your final transcript to the Eligibility Center that includes your confirmation of 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 studentathlete 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) 338-7789.

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


INSIDE LMU 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, two-year 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 Eligibility Center may not be recruited until they have completed one academic year at the junior college. ˜Êi˜½ÃÊ >ÎiÌL> 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 seven 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. ˜Ê7œ“i˜½ÃÊ >ÎiÌL> 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. Currently in all sports other than football and women’s basketball, a college coach is limited to seven opportunities (contacts and evaluations combined) to recruit you and not more than three of the seven opportunities may be contacts. In women’s basketball, coaches have a limit of five opportunities with which to recruit you (contact and evaluations combined) off the college campus. Not more than three of those five opportunities may be contacts. Once you sign a National Letter of Intent, you may be evaluated an unlimited number of times by a college coach from the college with which you have signed. LETTERS AND RECRUITING MATERIALS In all sports other than men’s basketball, letters (including emails) and printed recruiting information may be sent to you starting September 1st at the beginning of your junior year in high school. In men’s basketball, you may receive these materials after June 15 at the completion of your sophomore year in high school. This information can only be sent to you through regular mail services. College coaches are not permitted to send anything to you (expect a National Letter of Intent offer) through any express mail service (e.g. Federal Express, UPS, DHL, etc.).

Los Angeles

G

rab your sunscreen and your towel, because LA has more than 50 miles of coastline and 33 public beaches, so you can always find a stretch of sand to snatch and plenty of waves to catch. But don’t forget your appetite, an extra suitcase and a sense of adventure, because LA’s coastal cities are more than just a bunch of pretty places. From the quiet enclaves of Playa del Rey and Marina del Rey just minutes from the LMU campus to the funky ambience of Venice with its offbeat street performers, each of these waterfront wonders offers its own personality and its own take on dining, shopping, attractions and activities. Where to Eat: Coastal Cuisine Got a hankering for fresh seafood? How about a healthy entrée salad? Or a greasy burger? Our beach cities have them all. Representing diverse coastal cuisine is the spruced-up Mexican fare of celebrity chefs Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken, hosts of the Food Network’s “Too Hot Tamales,” at Border Grill Santa Monica. For even more celebrity watching, head to The Lobster in Santa Monica or Geoffrey’s on the beach in Malibu. Artist types like the Asian fusion cuisine at Chaya Venice, where local artists, musicians and movie industry moguls hang out. Meanwhile, couples enjoy romantic dinners overlooking the marina and its million-dollar yachts at Café del Rey in Marina del Rey. More casual fare can be had at a number of local hot dog and hamburger stands. And several eateries at San Pedro’s Ports O’ Call Village serve up freshly caught seafood cooked on outdoor grills. Where to Shop: Retail Therapy If you’re looking for that perfect bathing suit or pair of sunglasses or

a chic, antique accent table for your living room, you’ve come to the right place. Head to Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade for several pedestrian-only blocks full of well-known retailers such as Pottery Barn and Urban Outfitters, as well as one-of-the-kind shops, plus three multiplex cinemas and a slew of restaurants, cafes and bars. Nearby, the hottest celebs — Jennifer Aniston, Leonardo DiCaprio, Gwyneth Paltrow and George Clooney among them — shop at Fred Segal. Equally alluring is Montana Avenue, where you’ll find high-end designer boutiques, including some that are owned by celebrity clans. And if it’s quirky you want, go straight to Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice for antiques, vintage clothing, funky collectibles and locally created art — all set in the neighborhood’s laid-back beach atmosphere. What to See: Fabled Attractions When you get tired of sunbathing and surfing, there’s always something fun to do. For classic serenity, visit the Getty Villa, presiding on a promontory overlooking the ocean on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. It recently reopened after nearly a decade of renovations and has an exquisite permanent exhibition of Greek, Roman and Etruscan antiquities. Partake in good old-fashioned fun and take a ride on the 1916, fully restored carousel inside a National Historic Landmark hippodrome building on the Santa Monica Pier. The pier also is home to Pacific Park, where you can hop onto a Ferris wheel, a roller coaster and other rides and play arcade games over Santa Monica Bay. Just south of the pier, there’s plenty to gawk at along the Venice Beach boardwalk, from the off-the-wall street performers on Ocean Front Walk to the washboard stomachs and bulging biceps at the Muscle Beach out

door gym. Or rent some skates and draw some of your own attention. If you’re farther south, visit the spectacular wood and glass Wayfarers Chapel, designed by Lloyd Wright, Frank’s son, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean just south of Palos Verdes. While you’re in the area, stop by the pristine Trump National Golf Club for a round of golf and breathtaking views. If it’s family fun you’re looking for, you can get an up-close-and-personal look at the Pacific Ocean’s inhabitants at the Aquarium of the Pacific on Rainbow Harbor in Long Beach. In San Pedro, the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium recently had a $10 million facelift and features a hands-on Exploration Center and an aquatic nursery. While you���re in San Pedro, catch the fantastic views from Point Fermin Lighthouse, one of LA’s most historic landmarks. Or better yet, take a stroll on the new San Pedro Waterfront Promenade, lined with magnolias, peppermint trees and colorful gardens. If you’d rather be on the water, you can take a cruise with Hornblower Cruises & Events in Marina del Rey or with Spirit Cruises & Yacht Parties in San Pedro. Dinner cruises are available, and if you want to celebrate a special occasion with 40 to 400 of your closest friends, you can charter yachts from Hornblower, Spirit or FantaSea Yachts & Yacht Club. You can even get away to Catalina, the “island of romance,” in less than an hour and a half from San Pedro or Long Beach via the Catalina Express ferry. Where to Stay: Hot, Hip Hotels After a day in the sun, there are plenty of places to relax and get a good night’s sleep. Santa Monica Beach is virtually the backyard of Shutters on the Beach and Casa Del Mar. Just steps away are Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel and Le Merigot, a JW Marriott Beach Hotel and Spa. Nearby, the Viceroy Santa Monica is a hip, urban, boutique retreat, while the historic Fairmont Miramar Hotel Santa Monica. For a little vintage style, stay at Venice Beach Suites & Hotel, right in the midst of Venice’s bustling scene. Farther south, the Marina del Rey Marriott and the Ritz-Carlton Marina del Rey overlook thousands of yachts moored in one of the world’s largest man-made recreational marinas.
