2010 SEASON PREVIEW 2009 Season Recap The Pace University Women’s Volleyball team posted an overall record of 17-12 in 2009, with a 9-6 record in Northeast-10 Conference play placing them eighth out of 16 teams. The Setters were led by 2009 NE-10 All-Conference Third Team member Nora Rugova with her tremendous play recording 295 kills, 220 digs, 44 total blocks, and 43 service aces. The freshman was also selected for the 2009 NE-10’s All-Rookie Team. Along with Rugova, junior Victoria Pompilus was selected for the 2009 NE-10 All-Conference Third Team for her impressive defensive play. Pompilus recorded 85 total blocks, with 22 solo and 63 assisted. She also provided notable play with 246 kills and 26 digs. Freshman Susana Verdugo Del-Real and junior Sianna Johnson both proved their attacking abilities with 268 kills and 267 kills respectively. Sophomore Shea Hansen shined in 2009 as well, particularly in her ability to serve aces with 44. Classmate Elyse Rowland provided her own solid defensive play with 288 digs. 2010 Preview After making an appearance at the NCAA Division II National Championships in 2009 the Setters look to continue that success in 2010. Despite losing in the opening round of the tournament, new head coach Karrin Moore feels optimistic at advancing further in the tournament this season. The Setters posses more depth this season having a more complete and balanced look. In Coach Moore’s preparation, the more mature 2010 Setters have been able to adapt well to taking on many different roles for the team’s wellbeing. It is Coach Moore’s goal to have many of her athletes ready and willing to play different positions on the court. Setter Junior Shea Hansen is looking to dominate in the Setter role once again this season. In her sophomore season Hansen played in 110 sets, starting all 29 matches. She was ranked among the top 10 in the NE-10 Conference with 986 assists. Hansen also recorded 172 digs, 44 service aces, 40 kills, and 24 total blocks. Coach Moore has been working with Hansen on her foot and hand speed this offseason which should transfer over to more productive play in the near future. Hansen has started as the Setter for the past two years. However, Coach Moore has mentioned that sophomore Nora Rugova could see some playing time there as well. Right Side Perhaps the personnel on the right side is the most interesting for the 2010 season. As Coach Moore stated, the right side is in a unique situation because the team has so much depth that many athletes can handle the position. Tamilee Webb, Sianna Johnson, Sara Atai, and Whitney Hilton are among a few others that welcome the challenges of the right side. In 2009 Webb played in 66 sets appearing in 20 matches, and starting 13. She recorded 72 kills, 42 total blocks, and 20 digs. Sianna Johnson produced well last season also. Johnson played in 109 sets starting in all 29 matches recording 267 kills, 114 digs, and 30 service aces. Sara Atai appeared in 14 sets and 14 matches, while Whitney Hilton played in 10 sets and eight matches last season leaving them eager to take the next step in their volleyball careers. Again, Coach Moore has mentioned due to the versatility of her team Nora Rugova may see some playing time on the right side. Middle Blocker Seniors Sianna Johnson and Victoria Pompilus will both return to the middle blocker role for the Setters in 2010. In 2009 Johnson recorded eight solo blocks, 49 assisted blocks, and 57 total blocks. Pompilus continued to shine in the middle blocker role leading the Setters last year in blocks.
Pompilus played in 111 sets, starting in all 29 matches posting a team-high 22 solo blocks, 63 assisted blocks, and 85 total blocks. Her 246 kills in 2009 is evidence that she has solidified her worth on both sides of the ball. Coach Moore confirmed that she is expecting solid performances out of her seniors and that Tamilee Webb may see some playing time at middle blocker. Outside Hitter Sophomores Susan Verdugo Del-Real, Nora Rugova, and senior Sianna Johnson look to return at the outside hitter position for the Setters in 2010. Verdugo Del-Real played in 110 sets last year, starting in all 29 matches. She was second among team leaders with 268 kills while recording 176 digs, 35 service aces, and 23 total blocks. Outside hitter is another position on the Setter team that will challenge many athletes to fulfill its role. Coach Moore expressed enthusiasm on how deep this position will be this season. She mentioned names like junior Whitney Hilton, and sophomores Elyse Rowland and Shawna Dykens to help add depth for 2010. Libero Sophomore Elyse Rowland and junior Ursula Vero look to make an impact at Libero and defensive specialist in 2010. Rowland played 107 sets last season, appearing in all 29 matches, starting 13. She was second among team leaders with 288 digs while recording 83 kills, 15 service aces, and 13 total blocks. Vero played in 12 sets, appearing in nine matches. Rowland and Vero both look to fill the void left by Stephanie Kazmierczak who was ranked top 10 among the NE-10 Conference in digs last season. Expectations After making an appearance at the NCAA Division II Championships last year the Setters have a number of goals and expectations for the 2010 season. More specifically as a team, the Setters are shooting for an undefeated home record in 2010 taking them to at least the final four of the Northeast-10 Conference Championships. Coach Moore has hinted that she personally would like to see the Setters accomplish 20 victories taking them to the second round of the NCAA Division II Championships. Making it to the second round of the championships is a quality goal because it may be within reach and it continues to make the team work harder to further advance results from last season.

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.

In selected areas in each school or center, Pace will offer professional programs that are among the best in the New York tri-state area. Pace will always seek to relate its programs of professional education to the most important currents in those professions, capitalizing on its location in and around New York City to offer students real-world experience through internships and co-operative work experiences, using community service as a learning tool and employing problem-solving and other teaching techniques that re-enforce the relationship between a student’s university experience and professional challenges and satisfactions.
