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.

The LMU men’s tennis team finished the 2011-2012 season finished fifth in the West Coast Conference for the third straight year. They posted an overall record of 10-14 and a 3-4 conference record. At the WCC Cahmpionship tournament, the Lions lost the opening round match in a close 4-3 contest with San Francisco. Pepperdine finished first in the regular season and went on to win its 42nd WCC tournament title. Pepperdine, San Diego, and Santa Clara were the top three teams in the 2012 WCC and all went to the NCAA Championships. BYU was the fourth team that finished ahead of LMU in 2012. Junior Nicholas Bjerke was the only Lion to receive singles accolades for the second season in a row as he was named to the All-WCC Honorable Mention team. Bjerke along with sophomore Sebastian Bustamante earned All-WCC Second team honors for their doubles play. Freshmen Todd Volmari and Felix van Kann provided consistent starts in singles all year, proving to be worthy LMU newcomers. Sophomores Alex Wilton and Tom Price also saw plenty of court time in 2012 but both transfered out of LMU after the season. LMU’s major non-conference wins included Spring victories over Nevada, Pacific, UC Davis, UC Riverside, Boston University, Montana St. University, and Hawaii. Their conference wins came over San Francisco, Gonzaga, and Portland, all of which came at home. The Lions had zero WCC road victories last season.

s n o i p m a h C f o y r o t His 1900s


F 1930s


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 17 titles in 12 years. The current decade includes men’s water polo winning four straight titles and men’s soccer claiming their first in 2010.

LMU President David Burcham LMU AD Dr. William Husak Athletics’ Administration Head Coaches Staff Directory NCAA Compliance Directions


n 2011-2012, Loyola Marymount University celebrated its Centennial, bringing to a close its first 100 years on the bluff. Leading the Lions into their second century is Dr. William S. Husak, who is in his 15th year as the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics in 2012-13 (hired in 1998). Since 1998, LMU has seen its most overall success in school history as the Lions have claimed 31 of its overall 44 conference championships (among sports currently sponsored by LMU within NCAA Division I competition) and 40 of its 62 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, including the WCC’s best Federal Graduation Rate. 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. For more on the direction of LMU Athletics: Capital Campaign LionsFund Development - ADC



Hub of Activity

he busiest place per square foot on the campus of Loyola Marymount University is not what one would think. It is not LMU’s on-campus commons area, the Lair, University Hall or the LMU bookstore. It is the LMU Athletics Training Room.

Keith EllIson Asst. AD-Athletics Medicine (310) 338-2874 Sports: Men’s Basketball, Women’s Rowing, Men’s Golf, Cheer

Joe Gonzales Asst. Athletic Trainer (310) 338-2764 Sports: Women’s Basketball, Men’s Soccer, Women’s Tennis

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 student-athletes recovering from injuries that keep them out of competition, appointments with doctors and pre- and postpractice 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.

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 a three-year period will show lots of growth. It started in the summer of 2008 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 is home to 15 of the Lions’ 22 varsity programs in the newly remodeled and modern office complex and it continues today with the opening of the brand new Lions Athletic Center in April of 2011.

he mission of LMU as a whole is the development of the whole person, paying attention to the spirit of being a Lion. The center of that spirit is LMU Athletics and specifically the atmosphere of LMU gameday. From pregame hosted BBQs at LMU soccer, to chants from the grass knolls at softball to the pregame tailgate parties before LMU basketball games, there is a special buzz on LMU gamedays. And there are many ways to get involved, including involvement in TeamLMU. Check out LMU spirit at its finest. • Heart of a Lion • The Roar • LMU Cheer Team • LMU Pep Band • Tickets • Team LMU • Fight Song • Iggy • GameDay Central/Tailgating • Official Online Store • Summer Camps/Clinics
