On campus, with their team or on their own, many Maranatha athletes are involved with camp work during the summer. Individual and Team Camp on the campus of Maranatha is the largest summer ministry for the volleyball team. These camps require over 30 staff members who met the needs of over 200 campers. Many staff members are former players who enjoy the summer camp ministry. All the Maranatha sport camps train young athletes in their sport and leadership, all focused on the Bible. Some Crusaders are also involved in other ministries. Melissa Kaminski, a 2013 women’s soccer graduate, spent two weeks this summer at her church’s camp. Melissa shared how she prayed all week for one of the juniors in her cabin and was able to see her accept Christ by the end of the week. Camp allows the athletes to have one on one opportunities to reach into the lives of young people and make a difference. However, the biggest changes are often in the lives of the athletes themselves.

Coach Ruth Steinbart Ruth Steinbart enters her first season as the head coach of the men’s and women’s cross country teams with the goal of producing better runners in a fun way. “A lot of people view running as a miserable activity and we’re trying to change that perception by incorporating fun activities that enhance the workouts, like scavenger hunts or competitions between runners,” stated Steinbart. Steinbart, a 2010 graduate of Maranatha who now resides in Hartland, WI, has participated in four half-marathons and multiple 5k’s. She currently works in the athletic department as the Administrative Assistant.

Coach Paul Zdroik In his first season with the Crusaders, Paul Zdroik adds his experience as a runner and his ability to motivate young people to the coaching staff. Having competed in many races and having trained himself to be a marathon runner, he has a wealth of experiences and training techniques that will benefit the athletes. This past April he ran his first Boston Marathon and finished 56th overall with a time of 2 hours, 27 minutes, 41 seconds. Paul currently works as the Sports and Youth Program Director for the Watertown Area YMCA.

2013 Cross Country Preview The 2013 Maranatha cross-country team welcomes many newcomers this year, including their two head coaches, Paul Zdroik and Ruth Steinbart. Made up of eighteen runners, mostly freshmen and sophomores, it is a young team. Coach Steinbart remarks that this gives them the “potential to develop quickly into strong runners.” Some key returners for the Crusaders include junior Michael Kluver, who has proven himself to be a strong, consistent runner, and sophomore Kimberly Richerson, whose outgoing personality makes her ideal as this year’s team captain. The cross-country team is also excited about several new runners who have joined the team. Margo Watson, a transfer sophomore, has a very outgoing personality and good team spirit, which helps her in her position as the other team captain. Along with Watson, the coaching staff is excited about freshman Savannah Buchi who is a strong, dedicated runner. On the men’s side, Nathan Turcotte and Kris Black are both worthy of notice for their strong pace and commitment to improve. Both Coach Zdroik and Coach Steinbart are extremely excited about the team’s competitive schedule this year. The Crusaders are striving to meet several goals that the coaching staff has given them for this year. Each athlete is trying to develop as a runner, and it is a team goal for them to finish well at Nationals again where last year’s men’s team finished 2nd and the women’s team finished 5th.

Featured Athletes Kimberly Richerson A sophomore from Elmwood, IL, Richerson returns as one of the women’s top runners this year after finishing in 17th place in the 2012 NCCAA DII National Tournament with a time of 22:07.48 in the 5,000 meter race. In the 6,000 meter race, Richerson posted her season best time of 27:10.81, at the Wisconsin Private College Private College Championships on October 13, 2012.

Michael Kluver A junior from Sauk Center, MN, Kluver set a personal record time of 29:05.5 in the 8,000 meter race at the Falcon Invitational on September 15, 2012, and takes the mantle as the men’s top runner with the departure of William O’Malley. Kluver finished in 20th place at the NCCAAII National Tournament with a time of 30:20.85.

Head Coach Andy Peterson Andy Peterson is now in his third season as the head coach of the Maranatha Baptist Bible College football program after taking over full-time in 2011, and is projecting a focused, fierce, and fun attitude on the football field. Peterson, a 2003 Maranatha graduate, was a standout linebacker for the Crusaders and played professionally for the River City Rage (St. Charles, Mo.) for two seasons. Peterson was an assistant coach at Greenville College (Ill.) for three seasons and served on staff with the Western Michigan University football program in 2008 before returning to Maranatha. In 2012, Peterson helped his team come back from a 24-0 deficit against Trinity Bible on September 8th, scoring 20 unanswered points before Trinity managed a 31-20 win. Through his leadership, linebackers Ethan Kennon and Ethan Lane ranked 1st and 2nd in the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference (NACC) in tackles per game. Lane was named to the 1st Team Defense in the NACC while Kennon was Honorable Mention on Defense. In addition to his football duties, Coach Peterson serves as the head coach of the wrestling team, oversees the PHIT wellness program, and plays a major role in athletic recruiting at the college.

Honoring our Heritage Two names will long be remembered when people discuss the heritage of Maranatha Football and the word faithfulness. They are Terry Price (1985-2012) and Curt Malmanger (1988-2012). Both coaches, who retired at the end of last year, have played important roles in making the Maranatha Football program what it is today. Memories include an appearance at the NCCAA Victory Bowl (1998), missions trips to France (1995), Ireland (1998), and Isreal (2012) and 11 consecutive winning seasons (1988-1998). Through the years, they have impacted many lives by teaching athletes many life lessons. The lessons they have instilled in their athletes are also very evident in their own lives. Dr. Mal’s faithful service as defensive coordinator and line coach and his tiredless efforts keeping up with the Crusaders equipment demonstrate his servant’s spirit and faithfulness. He will also be remembered for his motivational skills and quotes. Coach Price also leads by example. His 2003 Life Acheivement Award from the Upper Midwest Athletics Conference is just one result of the impact he has had on so many. Of greatest importance to Coach Price is the impact he has had on his players in spiritual matters. To hear that his former players are continuing to serve the Lord faithfully brings him the greatest joy. THANK YOU!


2013 Football Preview As the Crusaders begin the 2013 season, Coach Peterson is fully confident in his player’s determination to compete each and every day. “After some great spring ball and heavy, quality recruiting by our current players,” Peterson says, “we enter this year excited to compete at a high level.” With an experienced, tight-knit group of players returning, this year’s team is looking forward to building off both the successes and failures from last year to become even more competitive. Peterson states, “The biggest thing we want to learn as a team is how to remain focused and fierce on the field, all while having fun.” This fierce determination will be primarily brought through key returners such as Ethan Kennon, Jordan Delay, Josiah Brendemuehl, Joel Kobosh, and Brandon McCormick. “We have a great group of guys coming back,” says Peterson, “We lost a few guys that we will definitely miss on the field and the contributions they added to the team, but we really feel like we have guys that are ready and fully capable to fill those positions.” With a large number of skilled players on offense who feel comfortable with the system, the coaching staff is highly optimistic about this year’s offensive firepower. “Our offense has great flow so far and looks really comfortable in many situations. Although we have to replace significant losses on the line, we are excited about some key additions who are very skilled and know how to play the position,” says Coach Peterson. On defense, the Crusaders will be equipped with a strong, talented group of linebackers who will anchor the middle of the defense this year. The coaching staff is thrilled to have a strong core of defensive players returning who have begun to become even more successful by correctly coaching themselves. “The coaching between the sidelines and the players on the field can only provide so much. This year, we are excited about the ability to give instructions on the sidelines, and then allow the players to simply go out and personally adjust, correct, or fine-tune their skills as necessary to adapt to certain situations,” says Peterson. The Crusaders will be looking to improve on their 1-10 record last season with 5 home games and 5 away games this season. Key home matchups include Trinity on September 14th at 2:00 p.m. and Rockford on October 26th at 1:00 p.m. New this year, MBBC intends for every college home football game to be available through live-stream video on the Maranatha Athletics College Football page. “Overall,” says Peterson, “the expectation this year is that if we keep working towards perfection, it will ultimately pay off and we’ll even have more fun that way. You know, football is just a game. We are so blessed to be able to wake up every day and seek to compete. If we can learn to do our best in every situation we are faced with and not back down when challenged, our players will succeed both on the field and in their personal lives.”

Coach Jeff Pill Coach Jeff Pill enters his sixth season at Maranatha as Soccer Coordinator and Men’s Soccer Coach, and can only be confident after leading his team to an 8-11-1 record during the 2012 campaign. Pill’s squad posted three wins over Northern Athletic Collegiate Conference Opponents; Rockford College (4-0), Concordia Chicago (2-0), Lakeland College (2-1), and a double-overtime tie against Marian University. Coach Pill’s leadership contributed to the first NCCAA Men’s Soccer Midwest Regional Championship since 1990 in the 2008 season, guiding the team as well, to a fifth-place finish in the National Tournament. Pill has also been named the NCCAAII Midwest Region Coach of the Year in 2008 and led his teams to Top-10 finishes in the NCCAAII for five years in a row. Before Coach Pill’s arrival at Maranatha, he served as Women’s National Staff Coach for U.S. Soccer and assistant coach for the U19 National Team with an international record of 11-0-1. Since 1994, Coach Pill has been part of the National Instructional Staff, contributing to the training of the 1996 U.S. Women’s National Team for the Olympics and helping to coordinate the Under-14 Girls National Team program. Coach Pill holds a USSF “A” License, a NSCAA Advanced National Diploma, and a National Youth License for coaching. Pill was recently invited to the 2012 Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs July 8-12 as part of a committee reviewing curriculum for coaching instruction at the highest level of the national coaching program. Coach Jeff Pill’s achievements include five New Hampshire Coach of the Year awards, Sportsman of the Year, New Hampshire Senior All-Star Coach, and the President’s Award from the New Hampshire Soccer Association. Coach Pill spent time on the New Hampshire Senior All-Star Selection Committee, serving as Vice President for the New Hampshire Coaches Association, working as a technical reporter for FIFA during the 1994 and 1999 World Cup games, and serving as Director of Coaching for New Hampshire. Aside from soccer, Coach Pill is a husband and father of three who models a God-honoring life for his family and team. His goals are to equip his players to excel on the field as well as in life as followers of Christ.

Tonal Defenders When the Men’s Soccer team was looking for a way to minister, they found one that is unique to them. They formed a singing group known as the Tonal Defenders. Besides providing special music around campus, the group travels to churches in the region singing, teaching, preaching, and of course, putting on soccer clinics. They also put on camps and clinics for churches and schools. Over twenty of the guys participate in this ministry throughout the year.


2013 Men’s Soccer Preview Cautiously optimistic. This is Coach Pill’s current mindset on the upcoming season for this year’s Crusader men’s soccer team. “We are coming off our best NAC season ever,” says Coach Pill, “and the foundation of our team this year will be strong because of many returning players. The camaraderie and cohesion of this year’s team will be a real positive, and I can already tell that there has been a real commitment by the guys on their offseason preparation.” The Crusaders return key players such as Brian Lundquist, Taylor Pill, Drew DeLozier , Dustin Dolan, and Mitchell Holley. “The leadership this year is very determined and focused,” says Pill “We feel like these guys will help push each of our players to their fullest potential.” The Crusaders will continue to explore and develop the system that they played last year. As the new and key players continue to develop, however, new strategies to increase success may be available. New talent includes freshman players Wira Wama, Alex Kornivsky, and Thomas Bagin. Wama’s skill and understanding of the game will provide the Crusaders with a strong, talented offensive threat this season. Kornivsky is a hard working, brave, asertive keeper striving to obtain the starting goalkeeper position. With good technical skills, Bagin should develop into a solid midfielder or forward for this year’s Crusader team. These freshman and others are working hard to adapt to the speed of play and physical dimension of the college game, and should provide quality minutes and depth to this year’s team.

Featured Athletes Brian Lundquist A senior midfielder from Reading MA, Lundquist provides an offensive spark after finishing with four goals and three assists for eleven points during the 2012 season. His speed and scoring touch compliments the ball-handling of Taylor Pill.

Drew DeLozier A senior defender from Watertown, WI, DeLozier tied for first on the team among defenseman for shots on goal and leads a young back line for the upcoming season. DeLozier displays good ball movement and the ability to find an open man.

Taylor Pill A junior midfielder from Watertown, WI, Pill started all but one game in 2012 and was the team’s leading scorer, with nine goals and four assists for 22 points. Pill’s long range accuracy and leadership are key cogs for a young team.

CRUSADER INFORMATION Community Service The Crusader Athletic teams are always finding something to do to help out the Watertown Community. Both the football team and the volleyball team work to keep a stretch of Wisconsin highway clean as part of the Adopt-A-Highway program. The SAAC, Student-athlete Advisory Committee, collects cans from the Maranatha student body each fall that are donated to the Watertown Food Pantry. Most of the teams are also involved with the YMCA, hosting clinics for the area youth. Giving back to the Watertown community is part of being a Crusader.

Coach Bryan Board Coach Bryan Board enters his third season as head coach and fourth overall coaching the women’s soccer team. Board began as co-head coach with Sommer Rudolph in 2010, leading the Crusaders to a 13-7 record after winning eight of their final 10 matches. The Crusaders advanced to the NCCAAII National Championship Tournament in Florida. In 2011, the Crusaders advanced to the NCCAAII Regional Championship game. Board led the Crusaders to a 9-14 record overall in 2012, with key wins over Lakeland College (2-1), Northland (3-0), and a 3-2 shootout win in overtime against Kentucky Christian for a 5th place finish at the NCCAAII National Tournament. Coach Board, a 2003 Maranatha graduate, played four years of soccer and a year of football during college. Board coached Bible Baptist and Community Christian Schools to three state runner-up finishes from 2003-2009 and helped with the U-17 Boys Watertown Soccer Club in 2010-2011.

Featured Athletes Harmony Lorch Lorch, junior midfielder from Aurora, CO, provides a consistent ability to handle the ball. Head Coach Bryan Board is excited to see Lorch grow as a leader on the team and stated, “Harmony is very knowledgeable about the game and gives us a solid presence in the midfield.” Lorch finished last season third on the team in goals (6, tied-3rd) and points (13).

Alyson Dunn Dunn, a junior defender from Oshkosh, WI, returns after missing last season. In 2011, Dunn started in all 16 games for the Crusaders, posted five shots, and tied with Kaitlyn Rygh as the team’s top defenders.

Kaitlyn Rygh Rygh, a sophomore defender from Atlanta, GA, started every game during the 2012-13 season. Rygh was named to the All-Tournament Team at the NCCAAII Nationals. As Coach Board commented, “Kaitlyn is a solid defender who knows our system and is a very strong leader in the back.”


2013 Women’s Soccer Preview The 2013 Crusader women’s soccer team is full of youth and an eager desire to learn more about the game. “We have 9 new freshmen and 10 sophomores on this year’s team,” says head coach Bryan Board. “With just two returning juniors, we are excited to see how our talented sophomores step up to lead our young team this year.” Junior Harmony Lorch will be a key component of this year’s squad. “Harmony will be a big boost to our team’s success by her ability to hold down the middle and control the offensive attack,” remarks Board. “We’re hoping she can stay healthy this year and really use her knowledge of the game to help others improve.” A key sophomore on the back line is Kaitlyn Rygh. She was named to the all-tournament team at the NCCAA National Tournament last fall, and the coaching staff was very excited about her progression as a player throughout the season last year. Returning as goalkeeper this year is sophomore Michala Marino. “Michala has really improved over last year and the beginning of this year as a quality keeper who understands our system,” says Coach Board. “It has been good to see her take the leadership role in the back and organize our players. She will be a big help to our team this year as her skills continue to improve.” The Crusader women’s team is also excited about several new players who have the potential to make an instant, tremendous impact on the team. “We’re really excited about freshman Courtney Dunn who has great ball skills, a big foot, a great understanding of the game, and could be a great ball-winner at the holding midfielder position,” says Board. The Crusaders also welcome freshman Emily Hinsenkamp. “Emily is extremely athletic and has great footwork for a girl her height. We’re really excited about the explosiveness she can bring to our offense, as well as provide us with a solid back-up goalkeeper,” states Board. The Crusader schedule this year will reflect a few more NCCAA games than usual, hoping to adequately prepare them for another deep run at the national tournament. “I’m really excited about our schedule this year as we were able to get a lot of games against NCCAA schools, meaning they will be very competitive and allow our young girls to get experience against the level of talent that we will face at the end of the year,” says Coach Board. He is eager to see how his young talent matures and improves each game this season, and says that the team’s goal will remain the same as it has in years past. He states, “Every year, we always want to see the program advance and become more competitive. We would love to continue our streak of going to the NCCAA National Tournament, and even take it to the next level of being in championship contention. My desire for the program is to start focusing on what it takes to become a national championship team, and then have the desire to commit to that process. This year, with a young team, we need to first learn our system and then begin to build our program and culture here at Maranatha.”

Coach Regina DeLozier Coach Regina DeLozier enters her seventh season as the head coach for the Crusader women’s volleyball team with a 114-76 overall record. At the 2012 NCCAAII National Championship Tournament, DeLozier led her team to 2nd place after reaching the championship game against #1 Clearwater Christian. She also guided her squads to consecutive semifinal appearances in the 2010 and 2011 NCCAAII National Tournaments. DeLozier places a high value on personal, and team, testimony and character. Her faith is of great importance to her, and she lives in such a way as to glorify God through her life. Coach DeLozier helps the athletes on her team to live in a God honoring way on and off the court in order that they can be a testimony to others. Coach DeLozier is a graduate of Northeastern Oklahoma State University, where she majored in both Engineering Physics and Mathematics. Regina’s experiences in the corporate and education fields have gained her a broad experience in adult, elementary, and secondary education during the past 26 years. Coach DeLozier serves on the faculty at Maranatha teaching in the science and math programs.

Featured Athletes Laci Peterson A 6-0 senior middle blocker from Chillicothe, IL, Peterson registered 321 kills during the 2012-13 campaign at a 3.91 per set, second on the team. The NCCAAII 1st Team All-American had 53 total blocks (12 solo) and accounted for 412 points (2nd on team), also making the Northern Athletic Collegiate Conference (NACC) 1st Team All-Conference. Peterson will be the team’s top threat in a balanced offensive system.

Samantha Swiatek A 5-3 sophomore libero from Walled Lake, MI, Swiatek finished with the thirdmost digs on the team as a freshman (230) while recording a .950 reception percentage. Swiatek now takes over for Hallie Sheley and brings assets of speed and quickness to a team that will rely on a strong defensive presence.

Lauren Schulz A 5-10 senior middle blocker from Lake Mills, WI, Schulz led the team in total blocks (86), assisted blocks (73) and ranked second in solo blocks (13) during the 2012-13 season. Schulz accounted for 129.5 points on defense and will team with freshman Alison Renz as well as Peterson, to make for a formidable front line.

Emily Thompson A 5-0 junior setter from Watertown, WI, Thompson developed a consistent chemistry with Torey DeLozier and Laci Peterson last season, finishing with 544 assists (5.44/set) for a .497 set percentage and surpassing 1,000 career assists. Thompson’s defensive impact came in the form of 168 digs last season, while on offense; Thompson often makes saving plays at the net for a redirect or an occasional kill.


2013 Volleyball Preview Height and Defense. These are the two qualities that the 2013 Crusader women’s volleyball team is most excited about for this upcoming season. “We should be very strong defensively,” remarks seven year head coach Regina DeLozier. “We want to use our solid defense to help springboard our offense.” With a relatively young team (three seniors), the Crusaders will have as many as ten players on the normal playing rotation, allowing them to be very diversified in their offensive and attack options. With brand new leadership on both offense and defense, the coaching staff has seen tremendous growth from the first day of preseason to the first scrimmage in their key players ability to help keep the team motivated and focused. “With our incredible height this year, we should be putting out some big numbers on blocking,” says Delozier. “Our defense will start with our block, and transition to a multifaceted offense with multiple players contributing.” The Crusaders will rely on several key returners that have stepped into important leadership roles for this year’s team. Seniors Lacy Peterson, Lauren Schulz, and Erin Steuerwald all seek to lead the team with both their offensive ability and defensive blocking presence. Additional height comes from junior hitter Pam Borchardt and sophomore hitter Stacy Reinke. The Crusader’s defense will be led by Samantha Swiatek, who was the team’s defensive specialist last year and has now stepped into the key defensive leadership role of libero. This year’s team also features good experience at setting, with juniors Emily Thompson and Pam Borchardt being capable of placing the ball where the Crusader’s offensive height can take advantage. The 2013 women’s volleyball team also welcomes six new players to this year’s roster. Starters Stacie Ross and Alison Renz will provide immediate offensive talent and blocking firepower for the Crusader team. “We are very pleased to have both Stacie and Ali join our team this year,” remarks Coach DeLozier. “Both girls have tremendous height; Stacie, who was a basketball standout last year, as well as Ali, our only starting freshman, will be great additions to our team’s offense and defensive blocking. The goals and expectations for the 2013 women’s volleyball team will remain at a high standard. “Our theme verse for this year is Ephesians 3:17,” states DeLozier. “By being ‘rooted and grounded in love’, our desire is to become servant leaders who demonstrate our love through Christ to the teams and spectators we come in contact with. We have a court goal of winning NCCAA Regionals, and, since last year we were runners-up for the National title, it will be our goal again to compete for the championship in Lincoln, Illinois, come November.” With many young players and a team that will miss four key contributors from last year, what will be their mindset for this season? “It’s simple!” remarks DeLozier, “We’re thinkin’ Lincoln!”

Volleyball Ministry Team The volleyball team used Ephesians 3:17, “rooted and grounded in love,” as the theme for the summer ministry efforts. Grounding their own lives in Christ’s love allowed them to show Christ to others and to serve others. This summer the Volleyball Ministry Team, made up of several players, traveled to four different schools hosting volleyball clinics for 2nd thru 12th graders. They were able to encourage young players in the sport of volleyball and in their relationship with God. Another group of volleyball players, former players, and a spouse were part of the Global Encounters Team Hawaii that was involved in missions work in Hawaii. This team lead two volleyball camps working with Hanalani Schools as an outreach ministry. While there, the team ministered in three different churches with song and testimony. The team also learned about Hawian culture and saw several of the wonders of God’s creation located on the island.
