Season Preview

4

After advancing to the semifinals of the NAIA National Invitational Tournament last season, the Park University men’s volleyball team enters its 2005 campaign ranked fourth in the country in the NAIA Preseason Top 10 Coaches’ Poll. The Pirates, who posted a 21-8 record in 2004, will be led this season by first-year Head Coach Cory Frederick. Frederick came to Park last summer after spending three seasons as an assistant women’s volleyball coach at Missouri Western State College. Frederick will have six letterwinners returning to the Pirates in 2005, led by junior Marco Rabello (Sao Paulo, Brazil) and sophomore Cristian Maciel (Sao Paulo, Brazil). Maciel led Park offensively last season, averaging 3.97 kills per game, to go along with 1.72 digs per game. Rabello ranked second on the squad in kills with 3.24 per game, as well as averaging 1.78 digs and 0.98 blocks per game. Junior Walker Swan (Norfolk, Neb.) and sophomore Simon Golola (Kampala, Uganda) also return to man the middle hitter position. Swan averaged 1.19 blocks and 1.86 kills per game, while Golola posted numbers of 2.55 kills and 0.79 blocks per game last season. Rounding out Park’s returning letterwinners are senior Wilfredo Ponce (Valencia, Venezuela) and sophomore Daniel Joens (Overland Park, Kan.). Leading the class of six newcomers to the program is freshman Ryan Stafford (San Ramon, Calif.), who had a team-high 20 kills in Park’s exhibition match against its alumni on Jan. 14. The current Pirates won the match, 3-1. “After seeing our match against the alumni, it is apparent that we have a lot of talent on this team,” Frederick said. “I’m excited to see how they develop over the next few weeks as we enter our regular season matches. “There is a lot of room for improvement and growth as a team, but that is a challenge we are all willing to accept,” Frederick added. “Once we reach our full potential, we will be a team to look out for. The talent is in place, now we just have to put it together as one team.”

Cory Frederick -- Head Coach -- First Season

Cory Frederick enters his first season as the head men’s volleyball coach at Park University. Frederick comes to Park following a threeyear stay as an assistant women’s volleyball coach at Missouri Western State College in St. Joseph, Mo. At Missouri Western, he contributed to scouting, recruiting and practice management. Before his stint at Missouri Western, Frederick spent a year in the high school ranks coaching the girl’s program at Fridley (Minn.) High School in 2000. He has extensive experience working camps during the summer, including serving at the University of Minnesota and Standford University camps. Frederick earned his undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1998, where competed in NIRSA Div. I Club Volleyball. In addition, he completed his formal certification in cytotechnology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., in 2000. He and his wife Becky reside in Kansas City, Mo., and have two dogs Izzy and Chaos.

Mladen Bundalo -- Assistant Coach -- First Season Mladan Bundalo enters his first season as an assistant men’s volleyball coach at Park University. A two-year letterwinner at Park, Bundalo was a reserve on the 2003 National Invitational Championship team. As a senior in 2004, he averaged 0.93 kills and 0.54 digs per game. A native of Belgrade, Yugoslavia, Bundalo earned his bachelor’s degree in bussiness management from Park in December 2004.

Gustavo Rocha -- Student Assistant Coach -- First Season Gustavo Rocha is in his first season as a student assistant coach for the Park University men’s volleyball team. Rocha, a four-year letterwinner, was twice named to the NAIA National Invitational AllTournament Team, including during Park’s 2003 National Championship season. As a senior, Rocha averaged 11.8 assists and 1.4 digs per game in 2004. A native of Goiania, Brazil, he is currently pursuing his undergraduate degree in business administration.

Sophomore Simon Golola (Kampala, Uganda) averaged 2.6 kills and 0.8 blocks per game as a freshman in 2004.

Monica Wade

After narrowly missing out on the postseason in 2004, the 2005 Park University softball team is ready to take the next step. Last season, the Pirates posted a 19-19 overall record and a 7-7 mark in MCAC play, which left them in fifth place, falling just short of a place in the postseason conference tournament. Second-year Head Coach Monica Wade returns five letterwinners to the 2005 squad, along with eight transfers and one freshman. Highlighting the returning class is junior Holly Gentry (Rossville, Mo.), who was 9-6 last season with a 3.41 ERA and 64 strikeouts. At the plate, Gentry led the team with a .300 batting average and 15 RBI. Gentry, an honorable mention All-MCAC honoree last season, will handle the pitching duties along with junior transfer Brooke Harrison (Augusta, Kan.), who played last season at Hutchison Community College. Second-team All-MCAC pick Trista Tomasek returns to handle Park’s catching duties in 2005. Tomasek, a junior from Ankeny, Iowa, hit .208 last season and tied for third on the team with nine RBI. “Trista has really stepped up her game and gotten into a groove with her hitting,” Wade said. “Her leadership as a catcher will be key to our composure and success.” Fellow junior and second-team All-MCAC selection Katie Immele (Grandview, Mo.) also returns after ranking second on the team with a .268 batting average and scoring a team-high 20 runs. Other returning letterwinners include senior Rachel Stoops (Tulsa, Okla.) and junior Kate Johnson (Kansas City, Mo.), who was an honorable mention all-conference pick in 2004. With a solid nucleus and an experienced group of transfers, Wade has high expections for the upcoming season. “I am very optimistic about the 2005 season,” Wade said. “We have lots of talent, but we will have to stay mentally tough to be successful. Our team consists of mostly juniors and it will be that core of players that will set the pace for our season.”

-- Head Coach -- Second Season Monica Wade enters her second season as the head softball coach at Park University. Wade led the 2004 Pirates to a 19-19 overall record and a 7-7 mark in the MCAC in her first season. Before assuming her duties as head softball coach, she spent three seasons as an assistant women’s soccer coach at Park from 2000-2003. A two-sport athlete, Wade was a two-time all-conference selection in both softball and soccer at Park in the mid 1990s. She was a member of Park’s 1994 NAIA National Tournament Runner-Up squad as a starting defender. In 1995, she was named team captain of the Park softball team, which was in its first year of existence that season. Wade spent two seasons at San Diego Mesa College, where she was a twotime all-conference selection in softball. As a freshman, she was awarded the regional Golden Glove Award for her fielding as an outfielder. A native of San Diego, Calif., Wade received her bachelor’s degree from Park in elementary education in 1998. She and her husband, Wes, have two sons, Zane and Taybor.

Michelle Kellogg -- Assistant Coach -- First Season Michelle Kellogg is in her first season as an assistant coach for the Park University softball team. She will be responsible for coaching the pitchers and catchers. A former Pirate, Kellogg and Head Coach Monica Wade were teammates on the inaugural Park softball team in 1995. She was a three-time all-conference selection as a pitcher and second baseman from 1995-97. A native of Grandview, Mo., she earned her bachelor’s from Park in 1997 in business administration/management, along with an economics minor. She is married to Matt Kellogg.

Season Preview

Cary Lundy

Coming off back-to-back 28-plus win seasons, the Park University baseball team will look to build on that success in 2005. Head Coach Cary Lundy returns 10 players from his 2004 squad, which went 28-25 overall and was 16-10 in conference play. Prior to the start of the season, the MCAC coaches picked Park to finish second in their preseason poll. Leading the way for the Pirates in 2005 is the senior duo of Adam Clay and Luke Johnson. Clay, a native of Kansas City, Mo., was tabbed the MCAC’s Pitcher of the Year in 2004 with a 9-4 record, 2.41 ERA and 92 strikeouts. A firstteam all-conference selection as well, he tossed eight complete games for Park. Johnson (Springfield, Mo.) was an honorable mention all-conference honoree last season, hitting .363 with three homers and 29 RBI. Junior Aaron Courter (Kansas City, Mo.) also returns to handle short stop duties. Courter, an honorable mention all-conference pick, hit .400 in 2004 with 24 RBI and 11 stolen bases. Other returning hitters include junior Dustin Hylton (Platte City, Mo.), junior Mohammad Mohammad (Kansas City, Mo.), sophomore Vince Sola (Kansas City, Mo.) and sophomore Daniel Redman (Independence, Mo.). Led by Clay, Lundy returns nearly his entire pitching staff including junior Roy Rush (1-1, 2.08 ERA, 23 K’s, Kansas City, Kan.), sophomore Ross McCoy (1-3, 5.41 ERA, Basehor, Kan.) and sophomore Ryne Mendez (3-5, 4.99 ERA, 30 K’s, Kansas City, Kan.). The returning class is joined by an experienced group of newcomers from the junior college ranks. Juniors Tommy Bennett (Kansas City, Mo.), Jason Miller (Kansas City, Mo.), John O’Rourke (Charleston, Mo.), Aaron Pryor (Platte City, Mo.) and Kevin Scobee (Kansas City, Mo.) are all expected to make an immediate impact for the Pirates. “Anytime you return such an experienced group of pitchers and also add some talented junior college players, you put yourself in position to win,” Lundy said. “If our staff can stay healthy, I think we will be able to compete with the best in our conference.”

-- Head Coach -- Third Season Cary Lundy enters his third season as the head baseball coach at Park University. Lundy owns a 58-41 record over his first two seasons, including leading his 2003 squad to a 30-16 record.

During the summer months, Lundy coaches UMB Bank in Kansas City’s presigious Ban Johnson League, leading his squads to seven league championships. In addition, he has also served as a recommending scout for the Cincinnati Reds organization. A 1982 graduate of Park, Lundy played baseball, basketball and ran cross country as a Pirate. A native of Kansas City, Mo., he has two children, J.D. and Kiely.

Season Preview

Brian Renshaw

Despite losing two of the most decorated track and field athletes in school history to graduation, Head Coach Brian Renshaw still has high hopes for the 2005 track and field season. Two-time national champion Crystal Bethel (Nassau, Bahamas) and eight-time All-American Mabior Atem (Upper Nile, Sudan) both concluded their outstanding careers at Park in 2004. National qualifier Keith Longuski (Ubly, Mich.) will lead the Pirates in 2005 despite his decision to redshirt this season. According to Renshaw, his leadership in practice will still be extremely beneficial to Park’s talented group of newcomers and returnees. On the men’s side, the freshman duo of John Miles (Parkville, Mo.) and Endashaw Yimer (Shashamane, Ethiopia) are expected to make immediate impacts in their first season. Senior Roger White (Fort Collins, Colo.) returns as one of the top race-walkers in the nation, while junior Jeremiah Willies (Perris, Calif.) is expected to build upon his strong season in the sprints last year. On the women’s side, senior Liza Ruud (Platte City, Mo.) is one of the Pirates’ most versatile athletes, competing the sprints, along with the javelin. Sophomore Becky Tackett (Marshfield, Mo.) is coming off a first-team all-conference cross country performance in the fall to lead Park’s distance runners this spring. Junior Reagan Mackey (Nassau, Bahamas) also returns as one of Park’s top sprinters from last spring. Like the men, the women’s squad has a talented group of freshmen that will make an immediate impact, including Lacely Brookshier (Throws, Moorsville, Mo.) and Sara Pitia (Mid-Distance, Independence, Mo.).

-- Head Coach -- 14th Season

16

Brian Renshaw enters his 14th season at the head coach of the track and field and cross country programs at Park. In that time, Renshaw has sustained Park’s reputation as a perennial contender in running sports since the early 1980s. Under Renshaw, Park’s teams have placed high in Missouri and across the NAIA Midwest Region and have regularly received top twenty national rankings from the NAIA. Along the way, the Pirates have broken more than 100 school records in Renshaw’s term as head coach. Before coaching at Park, Renshaw coached at Tarkio College where he also directed a winning program. In four years at Tarkio, Renshaw won four consecutive conference titles. Renshaw has coached more than 100 All-Americans. His peers have recognized him by voting him conference, district, or regional coach of the year 25 times. Renshaw is a graduate of Baker University and lives in Platte City, Mo., with his wife Candi.

Ron Pearl -- Assistant Coach -- First Season Ron Pearl enters the first year of his second stint as an assistant coach with the track & field and cross country programs at Park University. Pearl previously served as an assistant at Park in the early 1980s. A 1982 graduate of Park in economics and business administration, Pearl qualified for the 1980 indoor nationals semifinals in the 60-yard dash. In addition to his track & field career, he had a short playing career with the Ottawa Roughriders of the Canadian Football League. Pearl resides in Parkville, Mo., and works as a customer service agent for Continental Airlines.

Women’s Golf

Season Preview

Kelly DeFeo

It didn’t take long for the Park University women’s golf program to make a splash on the NAIA golf scene. In the program’s first season of competition, freshman Katie Johnson was crowned MCAC Player of the Year after winning the MCAC Conference Tournament. Head Coach Kelly DeFeo’s squad will look to make that same kind of splash in 2005. Johnson, a native of Overland Park, Kan., returns to lead a young, yet talented group of golfers. During the fall season, Johnson took third place at the Rockhurst Invitational and finished 28th at the UMKC Invite, which featured a field of mostly NCAA Division I and II players. “I am looking for Katie to have a great 2005 season,” DeFeo said. “She more than fulfilled my expectations as a freshman last year. As our team captain this season, her leadership will be very beneficial to our girls.” In addition to Johnson, sophomore Sarah Molina and a trio of talented freshmen complete the Pirate lineup. Molina, a native of Kansas City, Mo., finished 14th at the 2004 MCAC Championships last spring. Leading the freshman class is Ashley Nicks (St. Louis, Mo.), who in her first collegiate tournament in the fall finished eighth at the Rockhurst Invitational. Freshmen Amy Hollander (Kansas City, Mo.) and Jenna Luth (Kansas City, Mo.) round out the squad. “Our three freshmen worked hard last fall and made significant improvements,” DeFeo said. “With the continued dedication of Sarah Molina to improving her game, I think we are in good shape for the spring.”

-- Head Coach -- Second Season Kelly DeFeo is entering her second season as the head women’s golf coach at Park University. In the program’s first season of existence in 2003-04, DeFeo guided freshman Katie Johnson to a MCAC Individual Championship en route to being named the conference’s Player of the Year. A Class A PGA member with the Midwest Section since 1995, DeFeo’s impressive work record includes having been a teaching professional at the Robin Nigro Golf Academy in Kansas City, Mo. She has also served seasonally as a teaching professional at the Eldorado Country Club in Indian Wells, Calif., as an assistant professional at Tiffany Greens in Kansas City, Mo., and as the assistant/head golf professional at Mission Hills Country Club in Mission Hills, Kan. DeFeo’s vast professional golf experience includes workshops with the PGA and USGA on rules and tournament administration, fitting seminars and short game seminars. She conducted clinics and individual lessons for the UMKC women’s golf program in 1997 and served as the chairperson for Sectional Junior Girls’ Events in 1991. DeFeo is a contributing writer for Tee Times monthly magazine. DeFeo and her husband, Chuck, reside in Kansas City, Mo.

Sophomore Katie Johnson (Overland Park, Kan.) was crowned the 2004 MCAC Player of the Year.

Freshman Ashley Nicks (St. Louis, Mo.) finished eighth at the Rockhurst Invitational last fall.
