In just his first two seasons, Coach Natlo has tripled the size of the Swimming & Diving squads from a combined 11 athletes inherited in 20082009 to 34 athletes on roster for this upcoming 2010-2011 season. In his first year with the program, the 2008-2009 season, Coach Natlo's athletes rewrote the record book as he guided the Setters to 22 school records. Additionally, the 2008-2009 season saw Natlo's athletes reach the top of the NE-10, as a number of Natlo's athletes were awarded special recognition during the year, including: Freshman Cassandra Gentile named ECAC diver of the week and NE-10 Co-Diving Athlete of the Week; Freshman Chelsea Oberhauser named to NE-10 weekly honor roll twice; Senior Craig McClintock named NE-10 Swimming Athlete of the Week; Freshman William King named NE-10 Freshman of the Week and Sophomore Callie Grace named to the NE-10 All Academic Team for the 2008-2009 season. The 2009-2010 season brought even greater success as the women's squad had its best dual meet season ever, finishing with seven wins and two losses, while finishing 5th out of 8 teams at the 2010 NE10 Championships. Natlo's athletes reset the record board over twenty more times en route to the program's most successful season ever. Freshman Jenna Wood was named NE-10 Second Team All-Conference for her 2nd place finish in the 500 Freestyle at the Conference Championship meet. Wood's time was also an NCAA "B" qualifying time, the first in Pace's history. Freshman Kevin Dickson was named "NE-10 Men's Freshman of the Year" and was also named NE-10 Second Team All-Conference for his 2nd place finish in the 50 Freestyle at the Conference Championship meet. Junior Callie Grace was named to the NE-10 All-Conference Academic Team (her second year in a row) as a result of her 3.89 GPA and top-8 finish in the 50 and 100-yard freestyle and 100-yard breaststroke at the 2010 NE-10 Conference Championships. From 2004 - 2007, Natlo was a lead coach at Middies Swimming in White Plains, NY.

While with Middies and now at Empire, Natlo's clubs have been ranked #1 in Metropolitan Swimming and in the top 30 in the nation by USA Swimming. During the last six years, athletes under Natlo's guidance have consistently reached high levels in the sport, such as County/Conference Champions, Junior Olympic Qualifiers & Champions, YWCA National Champions, Team and Metropolitan Swimming Record Holders, Sr. Met, Sectional, Junior National and Senior National qualifiers. In 2007, Coach Natlo was Head Coach at the Ursuline School, an all-girls private high school located in New Rochelle, NY.

THE PACE STORY: Pace is a university whose resources have played an essential role in the realization of individual dreams of achievement and whose mission is voiced in its motto: Opportunitas. Founded in 1906 by the Pace brothers as a business school for men and women who aspired to a better life, Pace Institute began its transformation into a modern university, with emphasis on the liberal arts and sciences, under Robert Pace 42 years later. With dynamic leadership and fiscally sound management, Pace has grown into one of the largest universities in New York State, with a multi-million dollar physical plant, an endowment of over $100 million and a reputation for excellent teaching and talented, ambitious graduates. Pace is a comprehensive university with five schools and one college that offers a wide range of academic and professional programs for a large, diverse population of more than 13,000 students in for-credit programs, and in affiliated offerings. Through its Lubin School of Business, Pace continues to build its reputation for excellence in business education. The Lienhard School of Nursing, the School of Law, the School of Education and the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems are more recent responses to the needs of the New York City and Westchester communities for strong professional schools to prepare a well-educated workforce. The University's decision in 1948 to develop a college of arts and sciences as both an autonomous academic unit and a foundation for the undergraduate core curriculum has strengthened and enriched the educational experience of Pace students and provided an ongoing source of intellectual enrichment to the University. The Dyson College of Arts and Sciences is central to the intellectual life of Pace, to shaping academic priorities, and to providing ethical, humanistic and scientific principles upon which lives and careers are founded. At the heart of Pace's academic values is an historic commitment to excellence in teaching, as manifested by small classes, an emphasis on skill development and critical thinking, special tutoring and support services, and academic advising. Academic experiences at Pace emphasize teaching from both a practical and theoretical perspective, drawing upon the expertise of faculty who balance academic preparation with professional experience to bring a unique dynamic to the classroom. While the primary emphasis of the institution is on excellent teaching, the university supports and encourages scholarly activity to ensure the intellectual vitality of the faculty. While much of the work has had professional application, Pace particularly invites scholarship that directly relates to the classroom experience and involves students in the research process. Pace has always had a student-centered focus and is committed to providing access to those who range widely in age, ethnicity, socio-economic background and academic preparation. Increasing amounts of institutional financial aid to help students meet the growing costs of a private education; locations in New York City and Westchester County; evening, weekend and summer scheduling; and special counseling and academic support services are ways in which the university has sought to enhance the accessibility and opportunities of a Pace education. A significant tradition of Pace University is its strong relationship with business, civic and community organizations. Offering special programs and services to neighboring institutions and corporate partners, the university gains strength in return from these partnerships and derives benefits for its students from the networks these linkages provide. The future of Pace University will be shaped by its traditions and values as they respond to the current needs and expectations of today's students. Combining excellence in instruction with personal attention, Pace provides the virtues of the small arts and sciences college with the curricular richness, scholarly disposition and excellent professional programs of the research and comprehensive institution.
HISTORY OF PACE UNIVERSITY: Founded in 1906 by the Pace brothers, Homer and Charles, The Pace Institute was a business school for men and women who aspired to a better life. Homer and Charles Pace borrowed $600 to rent a classroom and office in the old Tribune building in lower Manhattan to teach 10 men and three women the principles of accounting and business law. That building once stood where the Pace Plaza building stands today.
Two years later, because of the overwhelming success of the Pace School of Accountancy, the Pace brothers relocated classes to the nearby Hudson Terminal complex. Another move to the Transportation Building at 225 Broadway took place in 1927 in response to continued growth. In 1948, Pace Institute was approved for college status by the New York Board of Regents. Academic expansion forced yet another move to 41 Park Row in 1951, and two years later Pace College received authorization from the State Education Department to grant the bachelor of arts degree. Classes began on the Pleasantville campus in 1963. The year before, the Marks Hall building was signed over to the College by Pace Trustee Wayne Marks, President of General Foods, and his wife, Helen. Soon after, Dyson Hall was constructed, named in honor of alumnus, Trustee and benefactor, Charles H. Dyson. Willcox Hall was named for Trustee and benefactor Byron Willcox. In 1965, the Undergraduate School of Business Administration, the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Education were established. The year following, the School of Nursing was founded and was later named after alumnus, Trustee and benefactor Gustav Lienhard. In December 1966, at the groundbreaking ceremony for the Civic Center building, Vice President Hubert Humphrey promised to teach at Pace and conducted a Scholar-in-Residence seminar at the New York City campus. Finally, in 1973, the State Education Department approved Pace College's petition for university status. Two years later, the College of White Plains consolidated with Pace University, and the School of Law was established in 1976. The assets of Briarcliff College were acquired in 1977. In the years following, an international education center was opened by IBM Corporation, NYNEX opened a center and the Hastings Center moved its operations to the Briarcliff site. In 1983, the School of Computer Science and Information Systems was established as its own entity. In 1997, Pace purchased the World Trade Institute, a leading-edge provider of international training programs. Pace University today is a diverse institution with over 13,000 students. For 100 years, bright, motivated and talented men and women have walked out of Pace's many doors, degrees in hand, and have ventured into the world prepared for the challenges of each passing decade. Every year, curriculum offerings in schools and colleges are modified to meet the changing needs of ambitious and knowledgeable students. Throughout the years since 1906, Pace has grown along with the talents of those who comprise what is affectionately known as the "Pace community." The Pace tradition is something in which we can all take pride.
