Athletic Department Staff Anthony Mariano

David Botelho

Director of Athletics

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 A 24-3 conference record since 2008 which includes 17 consecutive victories, back-to-back NCAA Division III tournament berths and Great Northeast Athletic Conference tournament titles and a 27-18 overall mark since 2008 is an impressive resume. Norwich University’s Class of 2012 and the Cadets’ coach aren’t satisfied though. “We’ve been able to play very

strong (in the league),” Elizabeth VanParys, NU’s third-year head coach said. “However, the team wants to do more … take it to the next level. It’d be great to win a third straight GNAC title and get another NCAA tourney chance. Those are two of the goals this team has set.” VanParys and the Maroon and Gold have the pieces in place to make another run this spring. With senior

defender Lori Baldassara (Manchester, N.H.) and senior midfielder Kacey Abbriano (Hicksville, N.Y.) earning another year of captains’ duties and sophomore midfielder Grace Fitzpatrick (Falmouth, Me.) returning off New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Rookie of the Year honors from 2011, Norwich has a strong nucleus to lead the way. “The leadership that Kacey and Lori can provide is critical for us,” VanParys said. “We have a relatively young team coming in (with half being sophomores and freshmen), and it will be great to have them on the field to show those players what we want to do. “We’re going to need (the younger players) contribute if we want to reach the goals we’ve been talking about,” she added. The Cadets’ offense looks to be one of the strengths early. They return five of the top six scorers from 2011 including Abbriano and Fitzpatrick who combined for 83 of the team’s 197 goals. Senior attackers Suzanne Whitaker (Chelmsford, Mass.) and Danielle Del Dotto (Andover, Mass.) were also above 20 goals a year ago, while senior midfielder Mollie Fitzpatrick (Falmouth, Me.) added 11 goals. Defensively, the Maroon and Gold need to replace graduate goalkeeper Kellie Pickel. VanParys pointed to a battle between senior Meghan Kennedy (Lowell, Mass.) and freshman Rebecca

Horgan (Topsfield, Mass.) for the starting spot in net. The new face will have the luxury of having Baldassara in front of them at a defender slot. “There are a lot of good options for us on offense,” VanParys said. “However, we do need to develop the defense. The potential exists for several newcomers to be a part of that area. “If we can get the defense going, we have a possibility of having another successful campaign,” she added. The Cadets open the season by putting their consecutive league match win streak to the test. In the span of three days, Norwich travels to Emmanuel College in Boston, Mass., March 20, hosts St. Joseph’s College of Connecticut the following day and is at Mount Ida March 23.
