Well into his fourth decade of service to Norwich University, Tony Mariano continues to provide leadership to a Norwich athletics program that has attained unprecedented levels of success. The 2003-04 season was arguably the finest in school history as all 16 varsity sports teams competed in postseason action, highlighted by the football team's first bowl game appearance in 20 years, and the men's ice hockey team competing in its sixth Division III "Frozen Four." Additionally, the Norwich men's rugby team qualified for the 16-team USA Rugby Collegiate Championship for the first time in program history. Mariano is in his 18th year as the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, after spending his first 16 seasons in Northfield as a coach. He was head men's soccer coach from 1978-84, before being named head men's ice hockey coach in 1982. Under Mariano's guidance, the Norwich men's ice hockey team made its first postseason appearance in 1984, and went on to appear in seven ECAC tournaments and earn two NCAA Championship berths. Mariano stepped down as head coach in 1992 when he assumed his current duties as athletic director. Mariano is a 1974 graduate of St. Lawrence University with a degree in physical education. He received his master's degree from Norwich in 1975. Tony and his wife Gail reside in Northfield. Their son, Tom, is an assistant hockey coach at Hobart.

2012 Season Outlook The way Coach Neal Anderson puts it, his team’s 2012 success comes down to one thing. “The question we face is if we can execute at a high level day in and day out,” the Cadets’ men’s lacrosse coach said. “We had a little bit of a tendency to play up and down to our competition. “I want to see us continuing execution on the field no matter if we are up 1-0 or 4-0,” he added. “It’s a matter of us

Senior Pat Sikora improving our consistency. Once that is accomplished, we’ve met our biggest goal.” To get that mindframe of consistency started, Anderson will lean on senior midfielder Pat Sikora (Montpelier, Vt.), senior defender Corey Cicio (Orange, Vt.) and senior goalkeeper Nathan Proctor (Pleasanton, Calif.). Each of the three have strong leadership potential having appeared in 20-or-more games over the past

two seasons and been part of a renaissance in NU men’s lacrosse where the program has risen from a 4-9 mark in 2009 to two successive .500-or-high campaigns of 8-8 (2010) and 9-5 (2011). “These guys are all very talented and know what we are trying to accomplish,” Anderson said. “They’re each hungry to get us to the next level, and I’m sure they want to end their careers with a big senior season. “It’s the best of two worlds for me when they are on the field,” he added. “It affords us a luxury of leadership and experience in each section with Sikora in the middle and being able to assist the offense, Proctor in net and Cicio on defense.” The trio is added to what looks to be a solid offense. The sophomore duo of midfielder Ian Mendoza (Mount Airy, Md.) and attacker Ian Thomas (Barrington, R.I.) combined for 35 goals and 16 assists a year ago. NU’s deep second-year class also has the benefit of midfielder Andrew Dustin (Canterbury, N.H.) and attacker Marco Wiederaenders (Denver, Colo.) who also were above 10 goals in 2011. The Cadets’ defense which, at times, was a tough nut to crack last spring has the keeper duo of Proctor and sophomore Mark Paradiso (Westford, Mass.) back as well as preseason Faceoff Magazine Division III All-American midfielder Nate Fortezzo (Branford, Conn.) returning along with Sikora, who

was also a scoring threat with 13 goals, and Cicio. The Proctor-Paradiso combo picked up seven of the nine wins in net, while Fortezzo was one of the toughest faceoff artists around winning 145 of 196 attempts. “I really like our depth,” Anderson said. “I think that and our athleticism are two of our biggest strengths. We’ve got a lot of combinations in our sets that can benefit us. We have 38 young men on the roster, and I feel like each of them can contribute. That is nice to have. “We have strong opponents throughout our schedule,” he added. “The guys have got to be ready to go in each situation. As long as we can execute our plan, I’ll be happy with the results.” The 2012 campaign opens Saturday, March 3, with a trip to UMass-Dartmouth. Norwich’s 2012 home schedule begins April 4 when Emerson visits Howard Field, while the Great Northeast Athletic Conference’s slate starts March 24 with an early-season clash against rival Lasell in Boston, Mass.
