LAKESIDE FIELD

N

orthwestern not only sports one of the top programs in the country, but also one of the top home field venues as well. Dubbed by Chicago Tribune sportswriter Phil Hersh as “The House that Kelly Built,” Lakeside Field opened in 2008, boasting an all-weather playing surface by FieldTurf, seating for 2,000 fans, a new scoreboard, lights for night games, a game operation booth with roof-top camera deck and a stunning view of both Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline. Lakeside Field, which also serves as the home field for the Northwestern men’s and women’s soccer teams, has already played a key role in the growth of the Wildcat lacrosse program. In 2008, Lakeside Field served as the host venue for the American Lacrosse Conference Championship and hosted a pair of national CBS College Sports broadcasts. This year, two more national television broadcasts will showcase the Wildcats’ home, with the Big Ten Network televising Northwestern’s games against North Carolina and Virginia. But more than anything, Lakeside Field provides an unmatched home field advantage, as the Wildcats enter the 2010 season with an NCAA record 54-game home winning streak on the lakefront. A lacrosse Lakeside Field record 1,531 fans watched Northwestern defeat Princeton 16-9 in the NCAA quarterfinals on May 16, 2009.

FRIENDS OF JACLYN T

he story of Northwestern’s relationship with Jaclyn Murphy, which led to the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation, has been well-chronicled. Becoming an honorary team member in 2005 after being diagnosed with a brain tumor as a nine-year old, Jaclyn proved to be an inspiration for the Wildcats and has been a key factor for Northwestern’s success. In turn, the friendship and bond formed with the ’Cats has played an invaluable role in helping Jaclyn not only fight through her sickness, but defeat it. Through Jaclyn’s inspiration, her father Denis created the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation in 2007 with the purpose of improving the quality of life for children stricken with a brain tumor. But neither he nor Jaclyn could envision how big the enormous support Friends of Jaclyn would receive. What started with just a handful of children being “adopted” by sports programs has grown to nearly 200 schools, with 64 in the process of being adopted and over 1,100 on the waiting list. These programs and children are spread across the United States at nearly every division, including sports such as football, baseball, softball, basketball, tennis, soccer and field hockey. The past year proved to be an incredible year for the Foundation, not just from a participation level, but also by the vast amount of national media exposure it received. Beginning with an Emmy-nominated documentary by the Big Ten Network, Friends of Jaclyn also drew the attention of The New York Times, Sports Illustrated Kids and CNN. But perhaps the biggest exposure came when Jaclyn, the Wildcats and the Foundation were the focus of a 15-minute feature on HBO’s award-winning Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, hosted by Frank Deford. Northwestern hopes to continue to help the Foundation grow, and for the fourth-straight year will participate in the Friends of Jaclyn Brain Tumor Awareness Challenge when it takes on Duke in Durham, N.C., on Saturday, April 3. For more information on the Foundation or to purchase tickets for the game and banquet, visit FriendsofJaclyn.org.

WILDCATS IN THE MEDIA N

orthwestern’s five-straight national championships have earned the Wildcats recognition not only in Chicago, the nation’s third largest media market, but nationally as well. In the past year alone, the `Cats have been featured on the Big Ten Network, HBO’s Real Sports, CNN, The New York Times and Sports Illustrated Kids, as well as more than a dozen of the top newspapers in the country. The ’Cats also were named the Chicago Tribune Team of the Decade.

Former Wildcats CHRISTY FINCH, HILARY BOWEN and HANNAH NIELSEN appeared on the cover of Lacrosse Magazine in 2008 while KRISTEN KJELLMAN graced the cover of Inside Lacrosse in 2007.

The Wildcats made a return trip to the set of Pardon the Interruption, ESPN’s popular sports talk show hosted by Northwestern alumnus Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser.

KELLY AMONTE HILLER chats with CBS 2 Chicago’s Ryan Baker and Megan Mawicke. CBS 2 re-aired “The Drive For Five,” Northwestern’s championship game against North Carolina on June 20, the first time women’s lacrosse had aired in the Chicago area.

2010 SEASON PREVIEW N

orthwestern head coach Kelly Amonte Hiller has been here before. Heading into the 2008 season, the Wildcats had a talented but young team who were expected to fill the holes left behind from one of the top senior classes in program history, including two-time Tewaaraton Trophy winner Kristen Kjellman and All-Americans Aly Josephs and Lindsay Finocchiaro. Now, heading into the 2010 season, Amonte Hiller has a talented but young team who will be expected to fill the holes left behind from the winningest program in program history, including two-time Tewaaraton Trophy winner Hannah Nielsen and All-Americans Hilary Bowen, Meredith Frank and Morgan Lathrop. “I think it is very similar. Last year’s class was a big class to lose. When they were coming off their sophomore year, they faced the challenges this team does now. But I think this year’s team will be up for the challenge. I know our seniors this year are very hungry.” In 2008, the young Wildcat team came together and battled through a tough schedule, finishing the year 21-1 and winning the program’s fourth-straight national title. This year’s team faces a similarly grueling schedule with the end result still waiting to be played out. But Amonte Hiller is excited for this next Wildcat team to make their mark as well. “This year will be a process. I’m excited about the athleticism and the talent this team has, and excited about the opportunities this year will present for us. We’re just eager to get going.”

COACHES Amonte Hiller returns for her ninth season in Evanston boasting a career record of 134-24. The three-time IWLCA National Coach of the Year (2005, 2008, 2009), she enters 2010 just 16 victories shy of reaching 150 for her career. She will once again be joined on the Northwestern sideline by a pair of her former players in

Lindsey Munday and Ann Elliott. Munday is in her fourth season as a Wildcat assistant coach with Elliott beginning her second season. Volunteer assistant coach Scott Hiller also returns for his ninth season.

The midfield is typically the deepest position on the field for Northwestern and 2010 will be no different. But it will also be one of the youngest positions for the Wildcats, with a handful of juniors, sophomores and freshmen expected to make an impact. The Wildcats led the nation in draw controls per game in 2009, with a lot of that due to the play of sophomore Alexandra Frank. Frank was second on the team with 63 draw controls, the seventhbest performance in program Sophomore ALEXANDRA FRANK looks to build on an impressive freshman campaign history, while adding 10 goals in which she tallied 63 draw controls, 10 goals and a team-best 29 caused turnovers. and leading the team with 29

DEFENSE Northwestern’s defensive backfield was one of the best in the nation in 2009, and should be even stronger this year thanks to a core of returners. Seniors Maggie Bremer and Sara Harrington will lead the defense for the Wildcats and look to build off 2009 in which the unit held opponents to just 6.83 goals per game—second-best nationally. The duo combined for 37 ground balls and 19 caused turnovers while consistently keeping the opposition’s top scoring threat in check. Sophomore Lacey Vigmostad looks to build off an impressive freshman campaign in which she scooped up 30 ground balls and forced 18 turnovers and was named to the WomensLacrosse.com AllRookie Team along with Smith and Frank. Junior Colleen Magarity should also play a key role for the Wildcats after seeing significant action for Northwestern. Freshman Taylor Thornton will add some depth and speed to the ’Cats defensive attack.

2010 SEASON PREVIEW GOALKEEPERS One of the constants for the Wildcats in previous years will be one of the teams question marks heading into 2010. Gone is four-year starter Morgan Lathrop, but both Brianne LoManto and Darby St. Clair-Barrie have impressed Amonte Hiller in the offseason and continue to battle for the starting job. “Those girls have really fought all fall and it really is neck-and-neck at this point. They are working extremely hard and pushing each other and I really like the way both have played.” The duo combined for 145 minutes of work in 19 appearances 2009, recording 14 saves and posting a 9.54 goals against average.

SCHEDULE Once again, Northwestern will face one of the country’s most challenging schedules, playing seven teams who finished 2009 ranked among the top 10 and nine NCAA tournament teams. For the second-straight year, the Wildcats get the opportunity to escape the cold and snow of a Chicago February, making their first two road trips to sunny California. Northwestern will once again open up its campaign in San Diego, facing Massachusetts in a rematch of last year’s NCAA first-round contest before returning to the Golden State at the end of February, taking on Stanford and California. The Wildcats’ first games at Lakeside Field occurs in early March when the ‘Cats welcome Georgetown and Duquesne and begin defense of their NCAA-record 54-game home winning streak. NU then embarks on perhaps the toughest stretch of its schedule, playing five of its next six away from Evanston, including a pair of American Lacrosse Conference opponents and four teams that finished 2008 among the top-10. The Wildcats head to Syracuse to face the Orange, followed by a trip to Columbus, Ohio, for their ALC opener against Ohio State. The annual clash with Notre Dame will take place at Lakeside Field at the end of March before a crucial three-game April road trip to Duke, Penn and Penn State. Five consecutive home games close out the regular season schedule for coach Amonte Hiller’s squad, beginning with conference opponent Johns Hopkins before a rematch of last season’s national championship game against North Carolina in a game televised live by the Big Ten Network. After NU takes on ALC rival Vanderbilt, Virginia makes its first-ever trip to Evanston in another Big Ten Network showdown before the ‘Cats close out the regular season with the first meeting against ALC newcomer Florida. Northwestern will then make a return trip to Columbus for the 2010 American Lacrosse Conference Championships in May. But ultimately the final goal for the Wildcats is a third-straight trip to Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson, Md., as Towson will once again serve as the host of the NCAA Division I Women’s Final Four on Memorial Day weekend.

HEAD COACH KELLY AMONTE HILLER’S THOUGHTS On the progress of the team in the offseason... “I was pleased with our fall ball this year. For having a young team like we do, I thought they came together. It definitely has been a process for us, and will continue to be because we are young, but girls have started to step up and I’m excited about the process and the opportunities for this team. We’re all eager to get the season going.” On the challenges of replacing the 2009 senior class... “I think its pretty similar to when we had to replace the 2007 team. Obviously when you have players like Hannah (Nielsen), Hilary (Bowen) and Meredith (Frank), you can’t just plug someone else into their spot because of everything those players could do and were able to accomplish. It’s a big class to lose, but I think the players that were sophomores and freshmen last year are very talented and eager, and this year’s senior class is very hungry. It’s just going to be a matter of time on how we come together, but we definitely have to get better every day in order to be a competitor, and do so quickly.” On the impact the senior class will have... “The leadership will be crucial. They’ve learned a lot this fall on what it takes to be a leader, and they’ve had an impact on the younger girls as well as some of them have taken on leadership roles as well. I think we’re heading into the season with the motto that everyone needs to lead this group and also lead themselves, but the seniors are going to be a crucial role in that. The more the younger girls want to play for these seniors, the better off we’ll be.”

KELLY AMONTE HILLER and the Wildcats look to face another challenging test in 2010, facing seven teams which finished in the top 10 and nine that qualified for the NCAA tournament.

On how this year’s team compares to the record-setting 2009 team... “I think we have the potential to be very explosive, much like how last year’s team was. We have more speed this year than we did last year across the board. We brought in some good, young freshman with speed and players are really starting to figure out their roles and step into them. Obviously Danielle Spencer and Katrina Dowd will be the leaders, but we’ve got some other dynamic players that should have great years as well.” On having a pair of new faces in goal... “I think it’s been different for the girls to look back and not see Morgan (Lathrop), but different can be exciting. It’s been a change. But those girls (Brianne and Darby) have really fought all fall and it really is neck and neck at this point. They are working extremely hard and pushing each other and I really like the way both have played. We’ve worked with both of them about stepping into that leadership role because the goalkeeping role is so important. But along with that, we have a very experienced defense coming back, and I think those defenders have also taken it up on themselves to pick up the slack, and all of them are really working well together.” On another very challenging schedule... “Playing the top teams in the country really helps prepare us. It helps prepare us for what we need to be in the end and definitely makes us stronger. Our conference is only getting better as well, so it will be a big challenge. But ultimately, it is something the girls want. They get excited about having the best competition on the schedule, and as a coach there’s nothing more you could ask for than for your team to be excited about the opportunities they have. At this point, we’ve done well with those challenges, so we’ll see how the team responds this time around. We want to prepare our girls and see what they can do with these challenges.” On her goals for the upcoming season... “Coming together as a team is a big goal for us. We do have a lot of new faces, and I think that’s the biggest challenge is getting people familiar with their roles and with each other. It is happening, and we’re right there on the verge, but we need to continue to get better at a very fast rate. Other than that, our goals are the same as they always are. We just try to get better at every practice and every game and challenge the girls to be better. We’re going to push this group. I think it’s a group that’s ready to be pushed and we’ll see what we can do.”

AMERICAN LACROSSE CONFERENCE T

he American Lacrosse Conference, in its ninth year of existence, is a lacrosse-only conference that consists of the University of Florida, Johns Hopkins University, Northwestern University, Ohio State University, Penn State University, the University of South Carolina and Vanderbilt University. In 2001 coaches from Davidson, Johns Hopkins, Northwestern, Ohio, Penn State, Ohio State and Vanderbilt met to form this conference as a means to provide more opportunities for the student-athletes at their respective institutions. In 2002 the American Lacrosse Conference sponsored its first season, with Vanderbilt winning the league title. In 2004 the ALC received an automatic qualifying berth to the NCAA Championships for the first time. Davidson withdrew from the conference in 2005. In June of 2006 Florida announced it would be elevating women’s lacrosse to a varsity sport for the 2010 season and in October of 2006, the Gators joined the ALC. In February of 2007 South Carolina also announced the addition of lacrosse to the varsity roster, and in March of 2007, the Gamecocks were admitted to the conference. In 2006 the conference approved a tournament format and 2007 marked the first ALC postseason tournament, with the winner earning the automatic berth to the NCAA Championships. However, in 2008 the conference tournament featured only five teams, and the automatic qualification was suspended. With Florida sponsoring a varsity team in 2010, the fourth year of the tournament, the NCAA bid has been restored and the ALC Tournament winner will again earn the league’s automatic bid to the national championship. A Winning Tradition The American Lacrosse Conference is synonymous with excellence, both on and off the field. The league has boasted the top conference RPI in five of the eight years of competition, a testament to the depth of the conference. Members of the ALC are consis-

tently found in the national rankings; the conference typically boasts at least three schools in the top-20 polls. The national champion has been a member of the ALC in five of the conference’s eight years of existence and the league has sent at least two teams to the NCAA championships in six of the eight years. In 2007, three members of the conference were designated as seeds. On an individual basis, student-athletes from the conference have been honored for outstanding performances on a regular basis. The Honda Award, recognizing the top player in the game, has been presented to a student-athlete from the conference in each of the last five seasons, including three times to Kristen Kjellman from Northwestern and twice to Hannah Nielsen, also from NU. The Tewaaraton Trophy, which honors the premier collegiate player, has been awarded to a student-athlete from the conference for four consecutive years, with Kjellman winning twice and Nielsen being honored during the last two season. In 2009, Northwestern’s Hilary Bowen was named the ESPN the Magazine Academic All-American of the Year. Northwestern’s Kelly Amonte Hiller has earned National Coach of the Year honors in three of the last five seasons. International Impact The conference has been a part of significant world lacrosse events as both student-athletes and coaches have participated in both the World Cup and the Under-19 World Championships. Two members of the 2003 USA World Championship team went on to play lacrosse at conference institutions; four current student-athletes at conference schools won a world title in 2007 with the USA Under-19 team. In 2005 Hannah Nielsen won a gold medal with the Australian national team at the IFWLA World Cup; in 2009 Northwestern alumna Kjellman, Sarah Albrecht, and Lindsey Munday team with Ohio State grad Regina OIiver to win the FIL World Cup with Nielsen capturing the silver with Australia.

hat Kelly Amonte Hiller has accomplished at Northwestern would be a solid resume for any coach: Five consecutive NCAA national championships, six American Lacrosse Conference titles and an .848 winning percentage in addition to coaching two Tewaaraton Trophy winners and over two dozen All-Americans. Considering she has accomplished all this in just eight seasons, taking over a program that had been relegated to club status, makes what Amonte Hiller has accomplished on the lakefront even more remarkable. Any doubts as to the impact Amonte Hiller has had on the national lacrosse scene was wiped away in 2009 as her Wildcats ran undefeated through their 23-game schedule, culminating with a 21-7 rout of North Carolina in the NCAA championship game. Northwestern set NCAA records for points (570) and goals (407) in a season, while leading the nation in scoring offense (17.6 goals per game), scoring margin (10.83 goals per game) and draw controls (16.91 per game) while also finishing the year with the nation’s second-ranked defense (6.83 goals per game). But where Amonte Hiller has shone the brightest is in the postseason when the pressure is the most intense. With Northwestern’s victory in the American Lacrosse Conference Championship and the fifth national title, the Wildcats extended their postseason winning streak to 29 games, and Amonte Hiller improved to 21-1 (.955) in NCAA tournament games ­— the highest winning percentage in the sport’s history. Another successful season once again brought in a handful of accolades for the Wildcat lacrosse program. Hannah Nielsen was named the Tewaaraton Trophy winner for the second-straight season, marking the fourth consecutive year the award has resided in Evanston. She was also named the Lacrosse Honda Sports Award winner for the second time as well as the Player of the Year by a handful of organizations. Six of her Wildcats were honored as IWLCA All-Americans, bringing the total to 28, with Amonte Hiller being named the IWLCA Coach of the Year for the second-straight year and third time total in her career. A truly legendary figure in the lacrosse world, Amonte Hiller was the 1995 and 1996 NCAA Division I Lacrosse Player of the Year, leading Maryland to national titles in both seasons. She was a four-time All-America in lacrosse under former NU head coach Cindy Timchal, ending her career as the school’s all-time record holder for career goals (187), assists (132) and points (319, 70 more than second place). In addition, Amonte Hiller also earned All-America accolades in soccer for the Terrapins and was named the ACC Female Athlete of the Year in 1996 for all sports. She graduated from Maryland in 1996 with a bachelor’s degree in speech communication. In 2002, Amonte Hiller was named to the ACC’s 50th Anniversary Women’s Lacrosse Team. In 2006, she was named to the NCAA Division I 25th Anniversary Women’s Lacrosse Team. In 2000, Amonte Hiller was ranked 21st by Sports Illustrated on its list of Massachusetts’ Greatest Sports Figures of the 20th Century, joining names such as Rocky Marciano, Doug Flutie and Patrick Ewing.

KELLY AMONTE HILLER

Amonte Hiller came to Evanston to resurrect a program that was one of the nation’s best during its initial existence (1982-92). During that span, the Wildcats played in the NCAA tournament five times, reaching the quarterfinals twice. The program was also loaded with plenty of individual talent ­— 10 players earned a total of 16 All-America honors, and 12 women earned a total of 25 regional All-America honors. Two women, Antoinette Lucas and Sue Novack, played with the U.S. National Team. Though the 2002 season was NU’s first as a varsity program, Amonte Hiller got a bit of a head start in 2001 when she handled the Wildcat club program for a year while setting about on the recruiting trail. Under her guidance, Northwestern’s club team went 19-1 during the regular-season, won the Women’s Collegiate Lacrosse League (WCLL) tournament title for the first time, and advanced to the United States Lacrosse Intercollegiate Association (USLIA) Women’s Club Championships in St. Louis. The odyssey to these lofty heights then began in earnest in 2002. Despite a roster that featured 15 freshmen and four sophomores, two of whom had never played lacrosse, the Wildcats went 5-10 in their first varsity season since 1992, including a 2-4 mark in the inaugural season of the ALC (with Davidson, Johns Hopkins, Ohio, Ohio State, Penn State and Vanderbilt). In addition to their two conference wins, the women also put a scare into Johns Then came the magical 2005 season which sent her original recruits Hopkins and Penn State, teams that were ranked nationally at the time of out as seniors exactly the way they wanted to—as national champitheir meeting with NU. ons.

She had six players receive All-America status, the most of any school and tying the program record for the most All-Americans in a single season. 2008 simply added to Amonte Hiller’s reputation after guiding her Wildcats to a 21-1 record, a fifth-straight American Lacrosse Conference title and solidifying Northwestern’s status as a dynasty with its fourthstraight NCAA national championship. She also eclipsed the 100-victory mark in just her 123rd game on the Wildcat sideline. She watched as Nielsen became the second Wildcat to take home the Tewaaraton Trophy, keeping the sport’s most prestigious award in Evanston for the then-third straight year. Amonte Hiller then saw four of her players earn All-American honors, bringing the total to 12 Wildcats with 22 All-American honors. But even after the season ended, the accolades continued to pour in for Amonte Hiller. She was named the IWLCA National Coach of the Year for the second time, and was named Lacrosse Magazine’s Person of the Year. Amonte Hiller earned induction into the Maryland Athletics and Italian-American Sports Halls of Fame, and earned the Bob Voigts Coach of the Year award for the third time, given annually to the top head coach at Northwestern University (which she won for the fourth time in 2009). She was even the focus of a Sports Illustrated feature story chronicling the Wildcats’ rise to the top of the collegiate lacrosse world. In the four years before her arrival at Northwestern, Amonte Hiller coached at the collegiate level. During the 1997 and 1998 seasons, she served as the assistant women’s lacrosse coach at Brown. In 1999, Amonte Hiller served in a similar capacity at the University of Massachusetts. In 2000, again as an assistant, she helped guide Boston University to its first top-10 ranking and an NCAA Tournament appearance. Amonte Hiller has three siblings, including Tony who was a former captain of the Chicago Blackhawks in the National Hockey League. He also played the silver medal-winning United States team at the 2002 Olympic Games. Amonte Hiller’s husband, Scott, holds a law degree from Suffolk (Mass.); a lacrosse standout in his own right, he has served as the General Manager of the Washington Bayhawks of Major League Lacrosse for the past three years after serving as head coach of the Boston Cannons the four seasons prior. Kelly, husband Scott and daughter Harlee reside in Evanston.

LINDSEY MUNDAY

ANN ELLIOTT

Assistant Coach Fourth Season Northwestern, 2006

Assistant Coach Second Season Northwestern, 2007

ormer Wildcat All-American Lindsey Munday is in her fourth season as an assistant coach after a standout career for Northwestern from 2003-06. “Lindsey is a dynamic and mature leader and to have someone that already instills all the values of the Northwestern lacrosse program makes it a smooth transition and we’re exited about all the qualities she brings to the table,” Amonte Hiller said. “She is very well respected by the team because of her accomplishments and maturity. She is one of the smartest players I’ve ever coached, so it’s exciting to have her in the mix.” A current member of the U.S. National Elite Team, Munday was a standout midfielder for the Wildcats from 2003-06, claiming first-team IWLCA All-America honors in 2005 and 2006 as the Wildcats became the first team in school history to win consecutive NCAA championships. She is second on Northwestern’s all-time list with 128 career assists, fifth with 268 career points and eighth with 140 goals. In 2005 she set then-single-season marks for points (107) and assists (54) as the Wildcats stunned the lacrosse world by becoming the first school outside the Eastern Time Zone to win an NCAA lacrosse title. Munday went out as part of one of the winningest senior class in school history (64 wins). She orchestrated an offense that led the nation with 15.8 goals per game in 2006 and helped the Wildcats set school records for goals (333), assists (165) and points (498) in a season. She has also been a part of all five Wildcat championships, winning two as a player and three as an assistant coach. This past summer, Munday competed for the United States at the 2009 FIL Women’s Lacrosse World Cup in Prague, defeating Australia in the finals to bring the gold back to the states. In addition, Munday was named to the All-World Team along with former Wildcats Kristen Kjellman, Sarah Albrecht and Hannah Nielsen (Australia).

ormer Wildcat defender Ann Elliott is in her second season as the assistant coach of the women’s lacrosse team. A four-time letterwinner at Northwestern, Elliott was a key member of the 2005, 2006 and 2007 national championship teams, earning third-team All-American honors as a senior. The Wildcats’ team captain in 2007, Elliott ranks eighth in program history with 45 caused turnovers and is ninth all-time with 104 ground balls, and was named Academic All-Big Ten three times. “As a player, Ann was a dynamic leader and inspiration to her teammates,” said head coach Kelly Amonte Hiller. “She has a keen eye for analyzing the game and is a definite asset for the team. She serves as the coordinator of defense, but shares a handful of responsibility for all aspects of the team.” During her first season as an assistant, Elliott was a key factor in leading Northwestern to the second-ranked defense in the country, allowing just 6.87 goals per game. The Wildcats’ defensive unit continued to caused havoc for their opponents, causing 188 turnovers and holding 18 of its 23 opponents to less than 10 goals. Since graduating from Northwestern in 2007, Elliott has served as the head coach of the Wildcat Elite Club and the Wildcat Developmental Team for Amonte Sports. She also spent a season as an assistant coach for New Trier High School, helping the Trevians to the 2008 state championship. Elliott has been actively involved in Amonte Sports since her playing days at Northwestern, serving as a camp counselor as well as heading the development of New Wave lacrosse clinics for Amonte Sports and WomensLax.com, organizing youth and high school clinics across the country. A radio film and television graduate from NU, Elliott has also done extensive work in video production for Amonte Sports.

2010 SENIORS NORTHWESTERN SENIOR CLASS REFLECTIONS Maggie Bremer Defense • Upper Arlington, Ohio “My experience at Northwestern is something that I will never forget. I have grown as an individual both on and off the field and have learned the power of having teammates pushing me in every aspect of life. Trying your hardest and learning to sacrifice my own needs for the team are two of the most important lessons I have learned at here and I will carry on those lessons when I graduate this year. I may not know what I have in store for me in the future but one thing I know is that I will have my lacrosse family cheering me on for the rest of my life.”

Kim Pantages Midfield • North Caldwell, N.J. “After looking back on my four years on this team, I realize how incredibly fortunate I am to have had such a unique, rewarding experience. I have not only learned how to work for something bigger than myself, but I have learned how to cherish the journey just as much as the outcome. Each day brought new lessons to be learned and challenges to overcome, which have molded my character into a stronger one. My coaches and teammates have made my experience at Northwestern unforgettable.”

“Not many people can say that they are part of a five-peat. But beyond that, Northwestern lacrosse has pushed me as a player and a person for four years. I can vividly remember the alumni section in the stands at each Final Four. They are always so proud because they too, are a part of the select history that is Northwestern lacrosse. Though we may have a brief history, it is one full of tradition that I have had a part of creating. Now, upon graduation, I look forward to celebrating that history of the program and its future success.”

“My experience at Northwestern has been one that I will remember and cherish for the rest of my life. It has been so much more than winning national championships. In fact, that is just icing on the cake of my experience. It is really all about the journey and the best friends that I have gained in the process, as well as the values and lessons that my coaches have instilled in me along the way. Being a part of this team is so much more than the game of lacrosse; this team has become my second family. With the experience that I have had at Northwestern I know that I will be a Wildcat for life!”

Sara Harrington Defense • Westwood, Mass. “My time here at Northwestern has been an unbelievable experience. Not only was I privileged enough to be apart of history in this lacrosse program, I’ve met some of my best friends while doing it. Going for national championships have been exciting, but that is just a small part of it. No other team is like this one. We’re like a family. My teammates and coaches throughout the years have made this experience unforgettable, and I thank them for that.”

2009 SEASON RECAP Nothing Short of Perfection Northwestern put the finishing touches on the second perfect season in program history, routing third-ranked North Carolina 21-7 at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson, Md., to finish the year 23-0. The Wildcats, the preseason number one team, never relinquished the top-spot in the polls, outscoring their opponents by an average of 18-7 despite facing 16 ranked teams. The 2009 team joins the 2005 squad, who finished 21-0 and won Northwestern’s first national title, as the only undefeated teams in program history.

Dowd Named NCAA Championship MVP Katrina Dowd has earned a reputation of playing her best lacrosse in the postseason and she continued to earn the title of “Miss May.” Dowd tallied a record 22 goals during this year’s NCAA Championship and was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player. She finished the year with 75 goals on the year—the third-highest total in program history—and is now tied for 10th all-time in program history with 132. But it was Dowd’s final goal against Penn that proved to be the most crucial, flipping a shot over her shoulder on her knees which found its way between the pipes with 0.2 seconds remaining in the first three-minute overtime period, tying the semifinal at 12. Dowd was joined on the all-tournament team by Hilary Bowen, Meredith Frank, Hannah Nielsen and Danielle Spencer.

Wildcats Continue Postseason Success Since Kelly Amonte Hiller took over the reins of the program in 2002, May has been the month the Wildcats have felt the most comfortable. Northwestern has posted a 21-1 record in the NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Championship under Amonte Hiller, including 20 consecutive tournament victories, and her .955 winning percentage is tops in the sport’s history. She also became part of an exclusive club, joining Chris Sailer, Cindy Timchal and Julie Meyers as just the fourth coach to record 20 NCAA tournament victories. As a program, Northwestern is 22-6 all-time in the NCAA tournament, boasting a .786 winning percentage which is tops all-time in postseason history.

Nielsen Closes Out Storied Career in Style

40

Hannah Nielsen solidified her status as one of the top players in the history of the sport with arguably her most dominant performance in 2009. Nielsen led the nation in points with 142, the second-highest single-season total in Division I history, and her 83 goals shattered her previous single-season record of 69 set back in 2007. The NCAA’s all-time assist leader, Nielsen captured both the Tewaaraton Trophy and Lacrosse Honda Sports Award for the second consecutive year, and was named an IWLCA first-team All-American for the third-straight year. She closes her career as Northwestern’s all-time point leader with 398, and is third all-time in Division I history for career points. Nielsen also holds the NCAA assist records for a single-game

(10), single NCAA tournament (16) and career NCAA tournament (35).

Bowen Solidifies Place Among NU Greats A key player in the Wildcats’ success over the past four years was attacker Hilary Bowen, who finished her time in Evanston as one of the top players in Northwestern history. Bowen’s 299 career points and 219 goals both rank third all-time in the program record book, while her 80 goals is fifth all-time. A two-time NCAA Championship MVP, her 81 goals in 2008 is the program’s single-season goal record, and her 51-straight games with a goal is the fourth longest streak in NCAA history. But Bowen saved her best for last, scoring 48 goals through the first 12 games of 2009 before suffering a torn ACL. Despite what is normally a season-ending injury, she returned to start the final three games of the season and tallied a game-high five goals in the NCAA final against North Carolina. Bowen, a three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection, was named the ESPN the Magazine Women’s At-Large All-American of the Year and was an Academic All-American first-team selection in both 2008 and 2009.

Lathrop Sits Alone As NU Save Leader Morgan Lathrop has established her reputation as one of the top goalkeepers in the nation, and has also made her mark on the Wildcat record book. Lathrop recorded 553 saves during her Northwestern career, surpassing Ashley Gersuk (526) as the program’s all-time saves leader. She finished with 131 saves on the year, marking the fourth-straight season of at least 100 saves, and ranked second nationally in goals against average (6.52). The 2007 IWLCA Goalkeeper of the Year and a two-time IWLCA All-American, she ends her career with a .506 save percentage and a 6.79 goals against average, while boasting a career record of 83-3 between the pipes for the ‘Cats.

of the Northwestern 200-point club in the Wildcats’ NCAA first round victory over Massachusetts. A three-time IWLCA All-American, Frank’s 210 career points is eighth all-time in program history, while her 152 career goals is seventh all-time and her 58 career assists ranks ninth in the program’s record books. But Frank was more than just an offensive threat for Northwestern, as she was perhaps the top all-around player on the roster for the past four years. She is fourth all-time in program history in both draw controls (183) and caused turnovers (76) while sitting seventh in ground balls (130).

Spencer, Dowd Make Marks On Wildcat Record Books Northwestern’s 100-goal club increased by two members this season as juniors Danielle Spencer and Katrina Dowd each gained entry. Spencer netted the 100th goal of her career against Syracuse on March 22, and now sits at 134, ranking ninth on the all-time goal list. Her 64 goals in 2009 was a new personal-best and is also the seventh-highest season goal total in program history. Dowd netted her 100th career goal in NU’s 11-9 victory over third-ranked Penn, and is right behind Spencer in 10th place with 132 for her career. Dowd led the team with 75 this past season, the third-best season total in Wildcat history. The duo should be one of the nation’s most dangerous scoring threats heading into 2010 with a combined 318 points (266G, 52A) between them.

Freshmen Play Key Role in 2009 Success

Head coach Kelly Amonte Hiller’s highly touted freshman class lived up to the hype in its first year in Evanston, with a handful of newcomers playing key roles. Shannon Smith started every game this past year for the ‘Cats and finished fifth on the team with 33 goals, while also winning 27 draws and causing 12 turnovers. Alexandra Frank established herself early as one of the nation’s top draw control threats, tallying 63 on the year.

All three were named to the Womenslacrosse.com All-Rookie Team. Jessica Russo also added another scoring threat to the potent Northwestern attack, notching eight goals and adding a pair of assists in her Wildcat debut.

2009 Wildcats Become Top Scoring Team in NCAA History Not only did the Wildcats make history with their perfect 23-0 record and fifth-straight national title, but the team also made its mark on the NCAA record books as well. Northwestern set Division I record for both points (570) and goals (407), surpassing the 2008 Syracuse squad as the highest scoring team in NCAA history. The 2009 Wildcats also dished out 163 assists, just shy of the program-record 168 set by the 2007 national championship team. As a team, Northwestern was named the NCAA’s statistical champions in four categories, including scoring offense (17.60 goals per game), scoring margin (10.83 goals per game), draw controls (16.91 draws per game) and winning percentage (1.000). Hannah Nielsen also earned individual scoring champion honors, leading the nation in both points at 142 (6.17 per game) and assists with 83 (3.61 per game).

Best Against the Best The old cliché says that in order to be the best, you have to beat the best, which is a challenge Northwestern has met head-on. Since the program was reinstated in 2002, the Wildcats have compiled a 76-18 (.809) record against ranked opponents, including a 37-7 mark at home. But NU’s record

against the top-10 is even more impressive as the ‘Cats are 42-8 (.840) since Kelly Amonte Hiller took the reins of the program, including a 22-3 record at Lakeside Field.

Home Sweet Home Northwestern has been one of the toughest teams to beat in recent years, but has been practically unbeatable in Evanston. The Wildcats extended their NCAA-record home winning streak to 54 games with the 16-9 victory over Princeton in the NCAA quarterfinals on May 16, and have not lost a home game since falling to Vanderbilt 10-9 in overtime on May 6, 2004. They became the first team in Division I history to reach the 50-consecutive win plateau, shattering Maryland’s previous record of 41-straight from 1997-2001. 34 of those victories have come against opponents ranked in the top-20, and NU is a perfect 11-0 at Lakeside Field in NCAA tournament games.

’Cats Continue ALC Domination Since joining the American Lacrosse Conference in 2002, Northwestern has posted a 38-9 (.809) record, and has won or shared each of the past six ALC crowns, winning the title outright each of the past five seasons. With the victories over Vanderbilt and Penn State in the ALC Championship, the Wildcats have now won all three ALC Championships, posting a 6-0 record since the tournament began in 2007. Northwestern also upped its conference winning streak to 29 games, dating back to the 2004 season.

The Tewaaraton Award Foundation, in conjunction with The University Club of Washington, D.C., formally established the Tewaaraton Trophy on August 29, 2000. Today, the Tewaaraton Trophy is recognized as the pre-eminent lacrosse award honoring the top female and male varsity collegiate lacrosse player in the United States. Simply, it is the lacrosse equivalent of college football’s Heisman Trophy. The bronze sculpture has taken up somewhat of a permanent home in Evanston, as the last four winners have been from Northwestern (Kristen Kjellman in 2006 and 2007 and Hannah Nielsen in 2008 and 2009). Over a dozen Wildcats have been named to the Tewaaraton Trophy watch list, with Kjellman (2005), Nielsen (2007) and Christy Finch (2008) also being named finalists for the award. Kjellman became the first two-time winner of the award, while both she and Nielsen hold the record for the most times being named a finalist at three.

The highest order of excellence N

orthwestern University was founded in 1851 as a private institution of “the highest order of excellence” to serve the Northwest Territory, an area that now includes the states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and part of Minnesota. Today one of the nation’s premier universities, Northwestern occupies two campuses along the shore of Lake Michigan and is connected by both geography and programming to one of the nation’s great cities, Chicago. In addition, Northwestern has a campus in Doha, Qatar. In this midsize research university, 11 schools— each with relatively small academic departments—offer high-quality programs spanning a remarkably diverse portfolio. Northwestern is recognized both nationally and internationally for the quality of its educational programs at all levels. U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks the University’s undergraduate and graduate programs among the best in the country.

more about Northwestern • From 25,000 freshman candidates each year, about 6,500 are offered admission for a freshman class size of 2,000. • Students from all 50 states and more than 50 foreign countries make up the undergraduate student body of approximately 8,000. The undergraduate population is about 54 percent women, and just under 30 percent are African American, Hispanic or Asian American. Total enrollment is approx­imately 17,000, including 1,100 part-time students in evening programs of the School of Continuing Studies. • Undergraduate financial aid is need based. More than half of all Northwestern undergraduates receive some combination of needbased scholarships, student loans and work-study employment. • Among the more than 50 fellowships awarded to students or alumni in 2008–09 were two Rhodes, one Marshall, four Gates Cambridge and 32 Fulbright Scholarships. • Among graduate programs, the J.L. Kellogg School of Management regularly ranks among the top five business schools in the country for both its traditional curriculum and its executive master’s program. • U.S. News & World Report placed Northwestern’s School of Law in the top 10 law schools nationally and the Feinberg School of Medicine in the top 20 medical programs. In its most recent assessment of doctoral programs, the National Research Council ranked five Northwestern programs in the top 10 percent nationally and 10 programs in the top 25 percent.

on the shore of lake michigan The unde rg rad u at e sc h ool s The Judd A. and Marjorie Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences is the largest of Northwestern’s undergraduate schools with more than 4,000 undergraduate students and 500 faculty members. It is the cornerstone of a University that believes study in the liberal arts and sciences is the foundation of a strong undergraduate education. Students may enhance their studies with independent research projects, ad hoc majors or minors, Chicago field studies and study abroad. The School of Communication offers opportunities for study in five top-ranking departments: communication sciences and disorders, communication studies, performance studies, radio/television/film and theatre. Cocurricular opportunities include the top debate team in the country, hospital internships, student video and film projects, theater productions and the largest student-run college radio station in the country. The School of Education and Social Policy started as a department in the College of Liberal Arts and became a separate school of education in 1926. “Social policy” was added to its name in 1986 to reflect a distinctive mission among schools of education—to understand and improve learning communities (schools and classrooms, workplace settings, families and neighborhoods), to study lifelong learning and to improve lives through policy. By producing scholarly research that informs and influences public policy-making about education, this small school (350 undergraduates, 300 graduate students and 23 faculty) has earned national recognition. In the Robert R. McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science, about 1,300 undergraduates and approximately 750 graduate students choose from among 15 majors, including such interdisciplinary fields as materials science, biomedical engineering and environmental engineering. Recent curriculum innovations and the Ford Motor Company Engineering Design Center give students exceptional opportunities for team learning, collaborative projects and computer-assisted learning. The Medill School of Journalism prepares students for careers in newspapers, magazines, broadcast journalism, new media or integrated marketing communications. Medill students have consistently won in the Hearst Foundation’s National Writing, Photojournalism and Broadcast News Championships, the Pulitzer Prize competition of college journalism; and its students dominate the Society of Professional Journalists’ Mark of Excellence Awards competition. Established in 1895 as an integral part of the University, the HENRY AND LEIGH BIENEN School of Music combines a nationally ranked music program of conservatory intensity with the academic rigor and scholarly resources found only at a firstrank research university. Students are encouraged to grow as both artists and people and to explore the myriad career options available in a life devoted to music. Artists from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Lyric Opera of Chicago and other world-class performing organizations are among the faculty.

university president morton Schapiro M

orton Owen Schapiro was named 16th president of Northwestern University on December 16, 2008 and began his term on September 1, 2009. President Schapiro is among the nation’s premier authorities on the economics of higher education, with particular expertise in the area of college financing and affordability and on trends in educational costs and student aid. He is widely quoted in the national media and has testified before U.S. Senate and House committees on economic and educational issues. Before coming to Northwestern, he was president of Williams College from 2000 to 2009. Among the initiatives implemented during his presidency were a substantial reduction in average class size, a tripling of the number of courses offered in the college’s signature tutorial program and the completion of a number of major building projects including a center for theatre and dance, a student center and new faculty office/classroom buildings. Courses taught by President Schapiro at Williams College included introductory microeconomics, a tutorial on the economics of higher education and two interdisciplinary seminars, one on the economics and philosophy of education and the other on disease, culture and society. He previously served as a member of the Williams College faculty from 1980 to 1991, as Professor of Economics and as Assistant Provost. In 1991 he went to the University of Southern California where he served as Chair of the Department of Economics until 1994 and then as Dean of the College of Letters, Arts and Sciences until 2000. During his last two years as Dean, he also served as the University’s Vice President for Planning. President Schapiro has written more than 100 articles and five books, and he has edited two others, most with his longtime co-author Michael McPherson. These include: The Student Aid Game: Meeting Need and Rewarding Talent in American Higher Education (Princeton University

60

Press 1998); Paying the Piper: Productivity, Incentives and Financing in Higher Education (also with Gordon Winston, University of Michigan Press 1993) and Keeping College Affordable: Government and Educational Opportunity (Brookings 1991), plus two recent edited volumes College Success: What It Means and How to Make It Happen (College Board 2008) and College Access: Opportunity or Privilege? (College Board 2006).

President Schapiro has received research grants and contracts from the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Education, the World Bank, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Spencer Foundation, the College Board, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and other groups to study the economics of higher education and related topics. He received his bachelor’s degree in economics from Hofstra University in 1975 and his doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania in 1979. President Schapiro and his wife Mimi have three children: Matt, Alissa and Rachel.

director of athletics and recreation jim phillips J

ames J. Phillips became Northwestern’s 21st director of intercollegiate athletics and recreation on April 14, 2008, bringing a track record of Division I success and a commitment to the values NU always has maintained in collegiate athletics. “The opportunity to lead Northwestern’s athletic and recreation programs is both exciting and humbling,” Phillips said. “Northwestern is a world-class institution that does things right in terms of college athletics and what they stand for.” One of 10 children, Phillips, who grew up in the Portage Park neighborhood on the Northwest Side, is the perfect fit to head up NU’s 19-sport program in the nation’s No. 3 market. His Windy City roots and family orientation are integral parts of his philosophy of providing student-athletes with a “world-class experience” that enables them to succeed academically, socially and athletically. One of Phillips’ first actions at Northwestern was to begin the implementation of a Department of Athletics and Recreation re-organization that was completed in January of 2009. NU’s existing departments were broken into three key “silos:” internal, external and student-athlete welfare. Northwestern’s stellar marketing and promotions staff continued to excel in 2008-09, winning its sixth national NACMA award since 2003. Ticket sales for Big Ten football home games went up 17 percent, men’s basketball sales improved 13 percent for weekend games and overall attendance was up at all seven of NU’s admission-charging sports. New courtside seating at Welsh-Ryan Arena sold out for the men’s basketball season. NU signed corporate sponsorship deals with Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Harris Bank, re-branded its media rights holder to Northwestern Sports Properties (NSP), defeated Notre Dame at U.S. Cellular Field in baseball and created an Annual Report to showcase the department’s previous year. Phillips hired ultra-successful women’s basketball coach Joe McKeown in June of 2008. McKeown came to Evanston after 19 years at George Washington, where he took his team to the postseason 17 times and compiled a 509-174 record. Phillips’ second coaching hire was to name Tracey Fuchs the head of the field hockey program in January of 2009. Fuchs had arguably the most successful playing career in USA Field Hockey history and has been referred to as the “Michael Jordan of field hockey.” In 2009, Phillips signed a four-year deal with WGN Radio, the long-time radio outlet of Northwestern football and men’s basketball. In addition to those two sports, a new weekly Inside

Wildcat Athletics show will air on The Voice of Chicago through the 2012-13 season. Phillips also inked head football coach Pat Fitzgerald to a new seven-year deal that will keep him on the Wildcat sidelines through 2015. Northwestern had a great athletic year in 2008-09, beginning in the fall with the Wildcats’ 9-4 Alamo Bowl season. The team became the fifth in NU history to win nine contests, finishing No. 23 in the BCS. The football team also earned a program-record 26 Academic All-Big Ten awards and earned a 3.0 or better team GPA during the spring quarter for the highest team GPA in school history. In addition, men’s soccer made its second appearance in the NCAA quarterfinals in the last three years. In the winter, men’s basketball earned NU’s first postseason bid during head coach Bill Carmody’s tenure. Northwestern recorded its fourth-straight year with an individual national champion when Jake Herbert won the 184-lbs wrestling title, the Hodge Trophy as the nation’s top collegiate wrestler and the Big Ten’s Jesse Owens Award. In the spring, Northwestern won its fifthstraight NCAA women’s lacrosse title and Hannah Nielsen repeated as the Tewaaraton Trophy winner. Women’s tennis ranked No. 1 for much of the year and won the ITA Indoor national title, a first for a northern school. Men’s tennis made a great turnaround to qualify for the NCAA Tournament and men’s golf made the NCAA Championships. Seven of NU’s eight men’s teams had postseason representation in 2008-09, making it arguably the top year for men’s athletics at NU in history. Academically and in the community, the Wildcats had a banner year in 2008-09. Northwestern touted a school-record-tying 879 studentathlete quarters in which a 3.0 GPA was earned, and 17 teams achieved a 3.0 or better team GPA. All 19 varsity squads recorded a 2.9 or better mark for two academic quarters (fall and spring) for the first time in school history. Northwestern’s combined student-athlete GPA for the spring was a school-record 3.21. NU’s APR and GSR scores ranked in the nation’s top five and 10, respectively. In the community, student-athletes volunteered a school-record 5,346 hours while serving 66 organizations in Evanston and greater Chicagoland. In June of 2009, Phillips served on the NCAA Champions Forum panel. The panel consisted of football coaches and athletics directors making an effort to bring minority football coaches closer to the mindset of those who hire football coaches.

athletic excellence N

orthwestern University’s athletic department is consistently one of the finest in the Big Ten and the nation. The school has gained prominence in the last 15 years with the renewed success of the Wildcat football team, but fans who know college athletics know that Northwestern has long been a hidden gem in numerous other sports. A quick look across the board yields some truths about the quality of the Wildcats’ 19 varsity programs—and makes it no surprise to find out that Northwestern has been ranked in the Top 25 of The Sporting News listing of the top athletic departments in the nation every year that TSN has performed the survey. Since the 1995-96 athletic year, Northwestern has had 40 conference players of the year, 28 conference rookies of the year, and 29 conference coaches of the year. Twenty-six teams have been crowned with a conference championship, and 62 individuals have won Big Ten titles while 595 have received All-Big Ten recognition. Northwestern athletes have been accorded 130 first-team All-America honors during that time, while six different NU coaches have earned National Coach of the Year honors since 1997. Northwestern also has added five NCAA team championships (women’s lacrosse in 2005-09) and nine NCAA individual titles to its ledger. Northwestern finished 44th in this past year’s U.S. Sports Academy Directors’ Cup standings after posting three-consecutive top-30 finishes from 2005-07. Northwestern’s five-year run of finishing among the top-45 Division I programs in the country marks its best-overall stretch of athletic success. Northwestern’s athletes also deliver in the classroom—the department has had more than 1,530 Academic All-Big Ten certificates delivered since 1995-96, including more than 100 each of the last 10 years. The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) has honored a Northwestern athlete 28 times with Academic All-America recognition, and 81 times with Academic All-District accolades.
