SEASON PREVIEW First-year coach David Kwan has great expectations and is excited about his first season with Adrian College. Kwan will be the first to admit that higher expectations are expected via a strong, supportive administration at Adrian that will allow him to build a winning tradition, provide great facilities, and travel to better opponents; with all of the aforementioned attracting the type of recruits needed to provide a winning foundation. Kwan’s first goal will be to take the team from last season’s seventh place MIAA conference finish to a position to challenge for a conference tournament berth. Once that goal has been attained, Kwan hopes to achieve Top-25 national status. One upside for Coach Kwan will be the demographic recruiting area - having spent nearly the past decade scouting the same region for Defiance College. The biggest change for the Bulldogs will be the implementation of a new faster offense, hopefully to compliment an already solid defense. The key to the season will be how the team comes out from training camp, according to Coach Kwan. “We are returning a pretty good defensive group headed by junior Kristi Walker (Livonia, Mich.). She led most of last year in digs per set and we are expecting a lot of the same from her this season. She will be our consistent person in the back row after having a great spring and solidifying her position as starting libero.” “The other returnees that we think are going to play large parts to our success are senior Kristy DeClercq (Livonia, Mich.), who is the captain and a starting setter. Another notable senior who may be seeing time setting is Ashley Vernier (Woodhaven, Mich.).”

“Other seniors who we think may break the starting lineup are Brianna Poole (Jackson, Mich.), who is a defensive specialist; and Katie Weber (Stryker, Ohio), who is an outside hitter for us.” “With a team goal of putting ourselves in a position to finish third behind Calvin and Hope,” Kwan believes a big part of that success will come from juniors Danielle Bogedin (Utica, Mich.) and Ellie Mindick (Canton, Mich.). Bogedin will return on the right side with a big block and solid sideout game, while Mindick, also left-handed, will be expected to produce defensively on the outside. “Together, they will hopefully anchor a lot of our offense on both the pins.” Two other juniors, Emily Ribant (Flushing, Mich.) and Casey Donovan (Lapeer, Mich.), will try to crack into that important defensive specialist role. “We are hoping for big things from these two defensively this season.” Kwan believes that, a disciplined and aggressive defensive transition game will be the key to outlasting some of the tougher teams in the MIAA. Of the sophomores on the squad, the most promising appear to be mid-blocker Linnea Berriman (Lake Orion, Mich.) and starting outside hitter Andrea Phillips (Farmington Hills, Mich.). Kwan is also counting on three big recruits who may be seeing starting time right away. Included in that freshman group are: Jordan Brisson (Waterford, Mich.), Makahla Jacobs (Toledo, Ohio) and Chelsea Jordan (Swartz Creek, Mich.).

“One force in the middle will definitively be senior Stephanie Holloman (Southfield, Mich.). She is our senior middle blocker and will help run our faster offense we put in place in the spring.”

Head Coach 1st Season York University (1999) 517-264-3842 dkwan@adrian.edu David Kwan enters his first season at the women’s volleyball helm at Adrian College after spending nearly the last decade as the head women’s volleyball coach at Defiance College. Kwan brings an impressive resume that includes: numerous college coaching accolades; multiple certifications; over 15 years of club, summer camp and community involvement in volleyball; and publication in the award-winning American Volleyball Coaches Association technical journal. Kwan began his involvement with collegiate volleyball while completing both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at York University, outside of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Having earned an undergraduate degree with honors in Kinesiology and Health Sciences in 1999, and a 2001 graduate degree of Kinesiology in Coaching; Kwan maintained roots with York as an assistant coach with the women’s volleyball team and mentored four All-Canadian athletes. While at York, Kwan also taught physical education courses and had the opportunity to work extensively with two-time Canadian Olympic Beach Volleyball Coach Hernan Humana. In 2002-03, Kwan became an assistant men’s volleyball coach with Humber College, helping the Hawks to a top-four finish in the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association Championships and an undefeated regular season. In between college coaching in Canada, Kwan coached the Toronto West Volleyball Club for five years and the Elite Summer Regional High Performance Team for Ontario from 1998-2001. While with the latter, he earned gold and bronze medals in his final two seasons, respectively. Kwan also obtained a Level 4 status through the National Coaching Certification Program and was employed as a strength and conditioning coach and personal trainer for Sports Clubs of Canada-Plaza Club. Prior to joining the MIAA for the upcoming season, Kwan left the HCAC (Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference) after coaching the Defiance women’s volleyball team with impressive results. Kwan’s accolades with the Yellow Jackets include: HCAC Coach of the Year (2003), school record 26-5 season, highest winning percentage for first 60 matches, three top-3 conference finishes, 150 wins and coaching almost two dozen All-

6

HCAC athletes. Community-minded and active, Kwan founded and completed his first year (2012) with the Sienna Volleyball Academy (SVA) after spending several years with the Toledo, Ohio-based Premier Volleyball Club, where he helped national travel teams qualify for the Junior Olympics National Tournament. Kwan has also instructed many camps at various colleges and universities including: Ohio State, Bowling Green State, and the University of Michigan.

It’s not about winning championships... but let’s face it, that is what we do here. We throw winning passes, hit home runs, score hat-tricks, and serve up wins in nearly every sport on campus. Maybe it’s because our athletes are strong — both in their sports and in their classes. The average GPA for our student athlete is above a 3.0, and with over 50% of our student body involved in some form of athletic activity, that says something. Actually, it says a lot.

We value a winning tradition on and off the court, the field, the ice or wherever our students spend their training time. Visit adrianbulldogs.com for more information
