Team Duhawk

Hello From TEAM DUHAWK! We are embarking on a new academic and athletic year at Loras College. As Denise Udelhofen and I begin our second year of our administration of Duhawk Athletics, our goals remain the same. We want to teach our student-athletes to be great citizens and people through their involvement in athletics. We, also, always strive to compete at the highest level in the Iowa Conference and in the NCAA. While our season and year are new, our goals remain the same. Denise and I have worked extremely hard to rebrand what was once called the Duhawk Club. The Duhawk Club worked to financially benefit the entire department. In reorganizing this booster club, our discussions revolved around how we could move forward by garnering more support for our student-athletes and, at the same time, provide more benefits for our members. The true greatness of Loras College revolves around the people who make up this proud institution both past and present. We want to take advantage of these Duhawk relationships for our members. Our goal is to be more accessible, visible and provide more opportunity for members to celebrate and connect to Loras College Athletics. Denise, our coaching staff and I will be on the road to see and celebrate the Duhawks with our members. Consequently, we hope more alumni and friends of Loras College participate in this new program. We also hope that TEAM DUHAWK serves its members at a more beneficial level. Please consider becoming a member of TEAM DUHAWK! Serve the Duhawks, Support the Duhawks and Socialize with the Duhawks! As Always…GO Duhawks!

The IIAC Conference

222 Third Street SE, Suite 423 Cedar Rapids, IA 52401 Phone: (319) 366-4845 Fax: (319) 366-4911 www.iowaconference.com

Chuck Yrigoyen IIAC Commissioner

Founded in 1923 and recognized as one of the top NCAA III leagues in the nation, the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference consists of nine private, liberal arts institutions. The IIAC sponsors 15 intercollegiate championships in men’s and women’s sports. The IIAC has proven to be one of the nation’s most dominant conferences, annually having many of its teams finish highly at the NCAA III national level.

IIAC MISSION STATEMENT

The Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (IIAC) consists of independent, regionally accredited, residential four-year, liberal arts colleges that share common academic philosophies and goals and that place primary emphasis on the academic progress of students. To that end the athletic programs of IIAC member institutions facilitate the intellectual, spiritual and physical development of all students, whether as participants or spectators. Members of the IIAC place highest priority on the overall quality of the educational experience of our student-athletes and their successful completion of it. Therefore, the member colleges seek to provide an environment in which athletic activities are conducted as an integral part of our student-athletes’ educational experience. In that vein, intercollegiate competition is provided by the IIAC to develop participants’ skills in selfdiscipline, teamwork, fair play, sportsmanship and ethical conduct; it is not provided primarily to serve the entertainment needs of spectators nor the talent needs of professional sports teams. Student-athletes in the IIAC should experience growth of physical and mental skills as well as an appreciation for the rewards of adequate preparation and superior performance. They also should learn to work and play with others who are unlike themselves but who are talented and productive persons. They also should experience the pride of representing an organization, not just themselves, and the responsibility of proper conduct that comes with it. But primarily, they should have the opportunity to excel in their academic work as well as in their athletic endeavors; competitive events and practice sessions will be scheduled to minimize the potential conflict between academic and athletic excellence. In sum, athletic competition in the IIAC serves to encourage our students to participate in activities beyond the classroom, to enhance skills helpful to career success, and to assist them in their general development as human beings.

Baseball Mentoring Program Duhawks Continue Mentor Role at Prescott Elementary School The Loras College baseball team has once again partnered with the students at Prescott Elementary in 2011-12. Prescott physical education teacher and Loras assistant baseball coach Kory Tuescher continues to help bring the two groups together. “The Prescott students and Loras College student-athletes are growing together in this partnership,” Tuescher said. “The Loras guys continue to be good examples for our students at Prescott and the Prescott students continue to learn and grow with their guidance.” The time spent at Prescott by the Loras student-athletes usually includes some time in the classroom and joining the children in Tuescher’s physical education classes. “I’m proud of our guys for taking advantage of the great opportunity Coach Tuescher has given them. It’s great,” said Head Coach Carl Tebon. “They are making memories every time they go down to Prescott and they’ll carry those memories with them for the rest of their lives.” The Prescott students will once again make a trip to Petrakis Park for a Duhawks game this spring.

2012 Baseball Season Preview Duhawks Looking for Return to IIAC Tournament The Loras College baseball team returns to the diamond in 2012 looking to return to the Iowa Conference Tournament. The Duhawks were four games better in 2011 than they were in 2010 and hope to keep the arrow pointing up with the help of a roster that won 19 games a year ago under 17th-year head coach Carl Tebon. The core of the 2012 team is made up of position players BJ Juergens, Joe Walker, Mike Pudlo, Eric DeSousa, Mike Canevello and Clay Henricksen who scored 47% of Loras’ runs and stole 40 bases in 2011. Five of Loras’ top eight hitters are back on the 2012 roster. On the mound, Ben Cottrell and Spencer Radabaugh will provide the most recognizable production from last year’s rotation and bullpen. Cottrell was fourth in the IIAC with a 2.23 ERA and won four games while Radabaugh set the program’s mark in both single season and career saves. Juergens, third in the IIAC in average a year ago, was a second team All-IIAC pick in 2011 and Radabaugh earned honorable mention. In the outfield, Mike Canevello and Billy Kass will likely fill two of the three spots, with Mark Jablonski, Kevin Harlander and first year Adam Kennedy competing for spots in the lineup. Joe Walker, who was fourth in the league in stolen bases as a freshman a year ago, is expected back from a knee injury shortly after the annual early season trip to central Florida as Pudlo’s double-play partner up the middle. Juergens and DeSousa have a beat on the corner infield spots to start 2012. Behind the plate, Clay Henricksen and Travis Olson each logged significant innings in 2011 and return for their senior seasons. First year Danny Fahlgren will push that duo for a spot as part of the Duhawks’ battery. A total of 70% of the innings pitched and 63% of the wins from last year’s pitching staff are gone this season. As a result, Cottrell and Radabaugh will have help on the mound from Austin Safranski and Logan Potter who are both back from injury. Newcomers Will Petrosky, Donny Baran, Miles Canady, Adam Schwoebel, Connor Schreck and Kody Massner will also likely be handed the ball in 2012. “We’ll take things one game at a time like we always do,” head coach Carl Tebon said. “We did some good things last year, but not enough of them. This year will be about taking what the young guys learned in 2011, combining it with our senior leadership and fighting and competing every inning of every game.”

St. Baldrick’s Foundation BaseBald Birds Of A Feather, Bald Together! Circle your calendars baseball fans! On April 14, 2012, the Loras College baseball team, in conjunction with Capri College and Coe College, will participate in a St. Baldrick’s Foundation BaseBald event at Petrakis Park. St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven non-profit 501 c-3 organization “committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.” Following Game Two of the doubleheader between the Duhawks and the Kohawks, members of the Loras College and Coe College baseball teams, their coaching staffs and multiple members of the faculty and staff at Loras will take turns sitting in the chair while the good folks at Capri College (led by Erin Fiegen) turn on the clippers and shave the heads of the participants for a great cause! The group of 20 original ‘shavees’ began as a St. Patrick’s Day challenge between a small group of friends who were trying to raise $17,000 on March 17 back in 2000. They raised over $100,000 that day and began what is now the world’s largest volunteer-driven fundraising program for childhood cancer research – raising over $117 million since their inception! They note their five guiding principles as: Integrity, Efficiency, Transparency, Pioneering Spirit and Sense of Fun. Loras and Coe already have over 70 ‘shavees’ registered, and are looking to raise at least $4,000. To make a donation on behalf of a Duhawk, Kohawk, or one of the many ‘bonus shavees’ not on the rosters you can go to www.stbaldricks.org and search for the Petrakis Park event. Some of the ‘bonus shavees’ who have signed on to participate include: Each of the five members of the current baseball coaching staff – including event organizer Dan Wellik Art Sunleaf, vice president for student development Bob Quinn, director of athletics Josh Edwards, strength and conditioning coach Jeff Kilburg, equipment manager Jon Denham, sports information director Dan Rothert, Matt Pucci, Loras soccer coaches Randy Steward, Loras wrestling coach Justin Heinzen, Loras women’s basketball coach Brent O’Brien and Rob Good, Loras assistant football coaches
