The WCC ABOUT THE WCC
The West Coast Conference was formed in 1952 to provide a convenient venue for five San Francisco Bay Area schools to compete in basketball. Since that modest beginning, the Conference has evolved and grown to become a nationally recognized and competitive force in intercollegiate athletics, with 13 league-sponsored sports: baseball; both men’s and women’s basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, and tennis; and women’s volleyball and rowing. The league began in 1952-53 as the California Basketball Association, and included College of the Pacific, Saint Mary’s College, University of San Francisco, San Jose State University, and Santa Clara University. It remained five teams until 1956-57, when Loyola Marymount, Pepperdine, and Fresno State joined the conference, giving it eight teams. At that time, the conference’s name was changed to the West Coast Athletic Conference (WCAC). The WCAC shortened its name to West Coast Conference in 1989, and developed a new logo in 1995 that lasted until 2011. Thirty years after its most recent expansion, the WCC welcomed its ninth member by extending an invitation to Brigham Young University in September of 2010. BYU officially joined the West Coast Conference on July 1, 2011. Today, the nine WCC members span the western coast of the United States from Canada to Mexico, from the pine forests of Eastern Washington, to the Columbia River Basin, to the dynamic San Francisco Bay Area, to the sunny beaches of Southern California, to the majestic mountains of Utah. The Conference is characterized by the stability of its membership - only two conferences have been together longer - and its unique emphasis on combining excellence in athletics with excellence in academics. The Conference recognizes championships in each of its sports, has hosted NCAA championship events, and produced 26 NCAA Division I individual or team champions. And, many outstanding WCC student-athletes have gone on to excel in professional sports. The long and rich history of the WCC demonstrates that success in intercollegiate athletics can be built on the foundation of values, character, and academics.

With the win, Sanchez and the Lions advanced to the NCAA playoffs as a team for the first time in program history.

In his first31 years at the helm of the Lions’ program, Sanchez’s teams never finished lower than fourth in the WCC. The Lions finished 12-14 and in second place after reaching the WCC Championship in 2006. In November of 2004, Sanchez was honored with the US Tennis Association/ Intercollegiate Tennis Association Campus Recreation Award as the sectional winner for all of Southern California. In its second year, the award honors an ITA coach who has done an outstanding job implementing recreational tennis
programs on campus in an effort to grow tennis participation. Sanchez, who developed and supervised the original LMU fitness center and club sports program, also worked with the current Campus Recreation department to direct LMU Tennis 101, where a recreational class open to all members of LMU’s Burns Recreation Center is offered twice a week to promote fitness and interest in the sport of tennis. As the Southern California sectional winner, Sanchez advanced to the national finalist pool of nine. In 2011, Sanchez guided the Lions to a fifth-place finish in the WCC. The Lions defeated No. 8 seed University of San Francisco 5-2 in the consolation bracket. April Bisharat was ranked first team singles All-WCC in 2011 under Sanchez. Sanchez also guided April Bisharat and Melissa Valenzuela to All-WCC first team doubles. Among other highlights of his 36-year coaching career are leading his 1978 squad to a No. 20 national ranking at the AIAW Division II level (one of three straight undefeated conference title teams), and the 1982 squad finishing 12th in the nation in NCAA Division II, its only year at that level. The Lions then received a preseason ranking of third in the nation in 1983, before the Lions moved to the Division I level.
Through the years, Sanchez has had four players earn LMU Athlete of the Year honors (Pavla Mesterova 2005-06; Penka Fileva 2002-03; Edit Pakay 2001-02; Julie Oshiro 1993-94) while Kris Anderson was named LMU Scholar-Athlete of the Year twice (1987-88; 88-89).

2010-11 Season Review The 2011 West Coast Conference Tournament saw the Lions finish fifth after falling on the first day to Pepperdine. Despite the early setback, the Lions made a two-day surge, recording victories over Portland and then San Francisco to win the consolation bracket and place fifth overall. After falling to the Waves in close matches, LMU gained momentum against Portland, notching a solid 4-1 victory over the Pilots to advance into the finals of the consolation bracket against San Francisco. Against Portland, the Lions earned two wins on courts one and two to secure the doubles point. April Bisharat and Melissa Valenzuela went 8-3 over Fuchs/Fuchs of Portland while Elisavta Pironkova and Reka Rohonyi defeated Hoath/Pflibsen 8-4. In singles the Lions earned wins from April Bisharat, Reka Rohonyi and Elisaveta Pironkova to earn the overall win. Bisharat shut out Stephanie Fuchs of Portland 6-0, 6-0 to earn a solid singles win. Rohonyi also won handily going 6-2, 6-3 over Tucker. Finally Pironkova battled in a close first set to prevail over Gorence 7-5, 6-2 for the win. On the final day of the tournament, the Lions defeated San Francisco, 5-2, to place fifth overall. The Lions and the Dons battled it out for a full seven-point match, which is rare for a championship tournament format which is structured so that the first team to reach four points wins the match and the other matches that are on the courts are stopped. The Lions started with a convincing win in doubles from April Bisharat and Melissa Valenzuela, who set the stage by defeating Hashuguchi/Duriez of USF 8-0 at the number one doubles spot. Miya Jin and Shauna Morgan then secured the doubles point for the Lions on court three with an 8-5 win over Akerbrant/Gaitan of USF. With these two doubles wins on courts one and three, the Lions took the early lead over the Dons. In singles, April Bisharat once again led the Lions, earning the first singles victory and the second point on the day over the Dons. Bisharat handily defeated Wartenburger 6-0, 6-2 on court one for the victory. Freshman Miya Jin earned a win on court three for the Lions defeating Gratian of USF 6-1, 6-2. The Lions now stood 3-0 over the Dons and were looking for one more point to seal the win. However, USF came back by earning two back-to-back points. LMU’s Melissa Valenzuela fell 6-2, 6-0 on court two before Estelle LaPorte fought off a close second set on court five, but could not hold off Mekpoh and USF earned their second point. The match then came down to courts five and six where Reka Rohonyi and Elisaveta Pironkova battled out long singles sets to try and earn the Lions the win. Both Rohonyi and Pironkova came out with the wins, uniquely finishing simultaneously on their individual courts to run the final score to 5-2 in favor of the Lions. Rohonyi defeated Hashiguchi of USF 6-4, 1-6, 6-2 on court four while Pironkova defeated McMahon 7-5, 7-5. In the end, the Pepperdine women’s tennis team avenged its loss in last year’s West Coast Conference Women’s Tennis Championship with a 4-2 win over San Diego. Saint Mary’s placed third while Santa Clara finished fourth, LMU fifth, San Francisco sixth, followed by Portland seventh and Gonzaga eighth.

2002: First WCC Championship The Loyola Marymount University women’s tennis team claimed its first ever West Coast Conference championship with a 4-2 upset over top seed Pepperdine at the 2002 WCC Championships. LMU defeated San Diego in the first round of the Championships before advancing to play Pepperdine by way of a victory over Santa Clara. The Lions found themselves in a tough position early in the match as they lost a hard-fought doubles point. Andrea Lord and Angelina Zdorovytska paired to take the number one doubles match 8-1 over Charlotte Vernaz and Veronica Koksova. However, the Waves responded with 8-6 wins in both number two and number three doubles. After Pepperdine took a 1-0 lead with the doubles point, the Lions had to take four of the six single points for the championship. And they did. First Zdorovytska would claim the Lions’ first point of the day with a 6-4, 6-2 win over Aklsandra Kujawska in number four singles. Freshman Georgina Dinham then earned the Lions’ second point with a 6-2, 6-4 straight set win over Anna Anderson at number six singles to give the LMU a 2-1 lead in the match. Pepperdine tied the match at 2-2 when Penka Fileva fell to Monika Horvath at number three singles 6-3, 3-6, 6-4. With the match tied, both the number one and number two single matches would go into the third set. Both Edit Pakay at the number one singles and Lord at number two singles found themselves down one set to start their matches. However, both responded to tie the matches and one set each to establish a dramatic finish. Pakay, who won the second set in a tiebreaker, responded for a 6-2 win in the third to put the Lions one point from the championship.

As she has done all season, Lord would complete the Lions first title run with a 7-5 win in both the second and third set. “We were talking about making history all week,” said Sanchez. “It was the kind of stuff coaches talk about all the time in these situations, but it worked and we won.

aybe that we’re the only Catholic University in Los Angeles and one of the world’s renowned Jesuit institutions, a group that includes 28 universities in the United States and over 100 schools worldwide.

Or that our serene campus, overlooking Marina del Rey, offers one of the most exhilarating academic locations anywhere. Or that our five colleges, all connected to Los Angeles, enable students to make current contacts in technology, business, politics, art, music, and naturally, the entertainment industry. Yet there’s something more to consider. If you’re looking for a place to acquire facts and skills that will help you get along in the world, you have many choices.

A VIEW TO A promising future.
he 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 seven colleges: • Business Administration • Communications and Fine Arts • Film and Television • Liberal Arts • Science and Engineering • School of Education • Loyola Law School

A SOLID FOUNDATION. University Mission AND Identity
oyola 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.

history of champions.
rom the very beginning, LMU has established a history of champions. In the 1930s it was three straight ice hockey championships. In the 1940s the legendary Pete Newell played for the Lions and the rivalry with Pepperdine (1941) began. The 1950s saw Bob Boyd win the NCAA title in the 100-yard dash. The 1960s saw the Lions win their first basketball championship, and one of their first Olympians, rower Hugh Miller Foley (1964). In the 1970s, Loyola and Marymount colleges merged and saw women’s sports begin their dominate history, including a pair of tennis championships (1977, 78). LMU then exploded in the 1980s with more individual national champions (Therese Kozlowki in cross country) and more Olympians (Paul Sunderland men’s volleyball gold medal in 1984). The decade also included LMU’s trip to the College World Series (1986) and two women’s rowing Varsity Four National Titles (1981, 89). The 1990s started with one of the most memorable moments in sports history with the men’s basketball run to the NCAA Elite Eight in the 1989-90 season. Women’s volleyball became the first program to win three straight WCC titles (1994, 95, 96), thanks in part to Olympian and All-American Sarah Noriega. Baseball would end the 1990s with three straight titles, the final coming in 2000. Then came the past decade, as the Lions won more titles (36) than the previous 70 years combined and yet another Gold Medal (Reid Priddy 2008 men’s volleyball). Leading the way were the men and women’s water polo programs, winning a combined 16 titles in 11 years. The current decade includes men’s water polo winning its fourth straight title and men’s soccer claiming their first in 2010.

a centennial celebration.
8 Insider Info: • Athletics at 100 • LMU at 100 • Centennial Schedule • Athletics History • LMU All-Americans • LMU Championships
t is a common and accepted practice for institutions of higher education in the United States to date their founding to the day and year when the first instruction was offered. LMU began when the Society of Jesus opened the high school division of their newly founded Los Angeles College on September 11, 1911 with 80 boys of high school age. It changed names three times by the time it became Loyola University of Los Angeles in 1930 on a third site (our present Westchester campus). With the merger of Loyola University and Marymount College in 1973 the name changed again. Loyola Marymount University’s centennial will begin with commencement in 2011 and conclude with Commencement in 2012, naming graduates of both classes as “Centennial Classes.” The Centennial celebration at Loyola Marymount University, LMUat100, kicked
off with the 2011 Commencement ceremonies and will continue through May 2012. LMU Athletics will celebrate along with the University with a full list of special events, frequent online features and Centennial games for each of its NCAA Division I programs. The events for athletics started with the record-setting LionsFund Golf Classic and Dinner Auction in May, and with the start of the fall 2011 sports season, the LMUat100 Celebration will be a busy one. The Lions will honor LMUat100 with a Centennial game for each of its programs, starting with men’s water polo against rival Pepperdine on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 12 noon. Each game will feature special promotions and features that sport, its history at LMU, and the student-athletes and coaches who have made it a rich part of LMU’s history.
n 2011-2012, Loyola Marymount University will celebrate its Centennial, bringing to a close its first 100 years on the bluff. Within the athletic department, the last 14 years of that history has been led by Dr. William S. Husak, who was hired as Director of Intercollegiate Athletics in 1998. Those 14 years just happen to be the most prolific as Husak leads the Lions into a new century that will be as focused as ever on his mission of winning championships, achieving success in the classroom through graduating all student-athletes in four years and helping them grow as individuals as they move on to the next stages of their life. Since 1998, LMU has seen its most overall success in school history as the Lions have won over 58 percent of its dual competitions in that span and claimed 30 of its overall 43 conference championships (among sports currently sponsored by LMU within NCAA Division I competition) and 39 of its 61 NCAA postseason appearances. Off the field, the Lions continue to rank among the best in the West Coast Conference and in the west in the NCAA’s APR and Graduation Rate, and in 2010-11, a record 225 student-athletes claimed the National Academic Honors. Husak attributes the success that has come on the field and classroom to the commitment to athletics from the University as a whole and people within it. And for Husak it is all about the people. He has been committed to developing a family of coaches, support staff and administrators who believe that LMU’s athletics program can be among the elite in the nation. His tenure has been marked by enhancing the support of the athletic teams through: • Staff: Growth of head coaches from 9 to 19 in 10 years • Facilities: $35 million in enhancements since 2000 • Operational: LionsFund support at record high • Endowments: Scholarships tops among WCC Husak is quick to acknowledge the success of athletics is due to a University committed to its programs. Leading this direction was the formation of the Athletic Director’s Council.

LMU athletic medicine
he busiest place per square foot on the campus of Loyola Marymount University is not what one would think. It is not LMU’s oncampus commons area, the Lair, University Hall or the LMU bookstore. It is the LMU Athletics Training Room. Right around 1,000-square feet, the LMU training room at any given moment in season is what Assistant Athletics Director of Athletic Medicine Keith Ellison calls “organized and controlled chaos.” On a given day, the Athletics Training Room will see about half of the 450 student-athletes at LMU. A given day will include lots of paperwork, therapy for studentathletes recovering from injuries that keep them out of competition, appointments with doctors and pre- and post-practice needs. With more than 50 years of experience in the field, the Training Program provides services that include a philosophy that places a high value on health and wellness, a program that allows injured student-athletes to return to their sport as soon as medically safe and to substantially reduce the risk of athletic injury for those student-athletes.
The Training Room at LMU features state-of-the-art equipment in a 1,000-square foot athletic medicine complex. The equipment includes whirlpools, paraffin bath, ultrasound, muscle stimulation and hydrocollators. a Click here for more on LMu athletic medicine

THE LMU TENNIS cENTER.
he Loyola Marymount University Tennis Center has been home to Lion tennis for more than 30 years, and since undergoing reconstruction in 2003, the Tennis Center has become a great place to both watch and play tennis.
The long-awaited sixth tennis court, the critical tournament court for the Loyola Marymount University Tennis Center was finished in December of 2003. The final court gives LMU a full six court facility that is home to one of the top programs on the West Coast. Construction of the sixth court was due to a $50,000 gift from A.G. [BusAdmin ‘72] and Kathleen Kading. The tournament court is named in honor of the Kading’s fathers Morris A. Pivaroff and George P. Kading. “The building of a sixth tennis court is another example of the commitment of the university and its supporters toward building a championship athletics program,” said Athletics Director Bill Husak. “It is a visible example of our efforts to create quality facilities for our student-athletes to practice and compete in and for our fans to cheer them to victory.” Coaches Jamie Sanchez (women’s tennis) and Brad Sceney (men’s tennis) note the importance of this gift for their teams. “We have five courts, the addition of the tournament court is pragmatic because it allows us to have six singles matches competing simultaneously, which enables LMU to host matches and tournaments against top-ranked universities,” said Sanchez. “The Kading family believes that supporting athletics is important for the growth of the university and its long term value,” said Kading. “Athletics will only bring the university prestige based on exposure. It will help with recruiting the most talented student-athletes, but we still have a long way to go.” Gifts given by Erik Doyle [BBA ‘84], a former men’s tennis player, and the Ron Labetich family, parents of two tennis alumni, ensured naming rights to two of the remaining five courts. The final three courts were named late in 2006, with the Dempsey Family Court (court four), the Bodkin Family Court (court five), and the Jamie Sanchez Court (court six) all being unveiled. Improvements are on-going to the facility, as a state-of-the-art scoreboard was installed in the fall of 2006. The board features individual court scoring controlled by seperate wireless remotes. The board also keeps track of the overall match score. It features 15-inch red LED displays that are easily seen from the end of the sixth court. The courts were resurfaced in December of 2006 after LMU hosted the NCAA Men’s Water Polo Championships that year.
