Nate Handrahan Head Coach Head Coach Nate Handrahan embarks on his third season as the leader of the Colonial women’s ice hockey team.   Taking control of the helm in 2006-07, Handrahan devised a complete turnaround of the program from its inaugural season in 2005-06 and has continued to improve the program in each successive year. Through his recruitment and development of talented hockey players and his knowledge of the game, Handrahan has begun to develop a strong women’s hockey program at Robert Morris, as attested by the team’s improved record, stronger statistics, and player recognition.   This past season, Handrahan guided his team to a 12-22-1 record and led his team to a similar 11-22-2 mark the year before. In each of Handrahan’s two years leading the Colonials, his guidance and expertise has created a more competitive Colonial squad at the Division I level. Before Handrahan’s arrival the team managed to earn only five wins and earned only 89 points.   Under Handrahan’s direction, the Colonial offense exploded on the ice in the 2006-07 season earning 205 points, an improvement of 116 points from the year before. This past season, the team earned a consistent 201 points. Handrahan’s defense also proved its resilience in the 2007-08 season by allowing its opponents to only 99 goals, compared to 116 goals in the 2006-07 season and 131 goals in its inaugural season.   The former Niagara stand out’s tutelage of his players was the most evident as the team grew as a whole throughout the season. Several players came to achieve at exceptional levels including the emergence of goaltender Brianne McLaughlin, who developed into one of the premier net-minders in NCAA Division I women’s ice hockey and was recently named to the U.S. U-22 Series National Team. In his two years of coaching at Robert Morris, Handrahan has produced one First Team All-CHA selection,

two All-CHA Second Team honorees and six members of the CHA All-Rookie Team. In addition, twenty of his student-athletes have been named to the CHA All-Academic team along with fifteen players who have garnered player or rookie of the week honors in the past two years.   Before taking over the women’s ice hockey program, Handrahan, under head coach Derek Schooley, served as an assistant coach with the RMU men’s ice hockey team. In his duties, he assisted in the day-to-day operations of the team as well as instructing on and off the ice. In his two years with the team, Handrahan helped the program to an 8-21-4 mark in its inaugural season and a 12-20-3 record in its second season.   A 2000 graduate of Niagara University, Handrahan returned to his alma mater as an assistant coach in 2001 under Dave Burkholder. Handrahan’s duties included game planning, recruiting, off-ice training, scouting, game film review, and coaching the team’s defensemen. Niagara earned an automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament in 2004 after winning the College Hockey America Tournament,

Robert Morris University

marking Handrahan’s second trip to the NCAA postseason. During his three years at Niagara as a coach, Handrahan recruited or coached 27 future professional players including four that would eventually be involved with NHL teams.   During his collegiate career, Handrahan played in every game for the Niagara Purple Eagles over four years, leading them to a No. 6 seed in the 2000 NCAA Tournament. The former defenseman, who played under current UMass-Lowell head coach Blaise MacDonald, was a two-time All-ECAC West selection. Handrahan earned the team’s “PAW” award in 1997-98 and the “Unsung Hero Award” in the Purple Eagles playoff season of 1999-2000. He finished his career with 13 goals and 66 assists for 79 points and still ranks 10th on the Purple Eagle’s all-time scoring list.   Following the 1999-2000 season, Handrahan was signed by the Roanoke Express of the East Coast Hockey League, where he played the remainder of the 2000 season and the 2000-2001 season.   Handrahan and his wife, Nicole, have three daughters, Haylee, Mara and Lila. He and his family reside in Sewickley, Pa. The Handrahan File

What makes RMU a great place for a student-athlete to spend the next 4 years of their life?

You have lived here in Pittsburgh for the past 5 years now, what do you feel makes the city such a great place to live?

How would you describe your coaching style?

Colonial Hockey History The University

I would consider myself a coach who wants the best for his players on and off the ice. We go to great lengths to facilitate individual development. Whether it is on the ice, in the classroom or in each player’s life, we try and have a positive impact. My main goal as a coach is to help all of our girls grow up and mature through their time here. I want to be sure that every player is prepared to step into the real world after their college career. Because we work at this, we are always honest with our players in order to give them accurate feedback without breaking them down so to speak. We follow our evaluations up with action plans that allow each player to develop and grow in their own way.

First of all, Pittsburgh fits for me and my family. It has all the things that a big city can offer, great culture, fantastic dining, exceptional professional sports and the greatest part about it is that it is 20 minutes from our campus. I think with the combination of having a small town feel on campus as well as having the big city downtown gives all of our students the chance to get a full experience here. They can get involved in a variety of activities. Some of the smaller communities around our campus like Moon, Sewickley or Robinson give our athletes yet another opportunity to enhance their experience here.

RMU is a wonderful place for student-athletes to learn and grow in an environment that promotes excellence as well as offering a close knit “family” community. Our campus is beautiful, we have great athletic facilities, we have the support of the administration and our academic offerings are diverse. We have taken great strides over the last 10 years transitioning from a college to a university and adding several new sports as well as renovation to our entire campus. I am very excited to see what the next 10 years will hold

2008-09 Colonials

In his two seasons as head coach, Nate Handrahan guided the Robert Morris University women’s ice hockey team to new heights. Under Handrahan’s leadership, the Colonials have compiled a 23-44-3 record in the past two years, which is a massive improvement from the Colonials season one record of 5-24-2. Handrahan spent some time this past summer to answer a few questions about Robert Morris University, life in Pittsburgh and his expectations as he enters his third season as the Colonial head coach.

I hope that all of our girls leave feeling prepared to take on all challenges that life throws at them as well as having had a life changing experience here that they will never forget. Each player has different majors in college and finds their own path, we hope to get them to the same end point after their four years here at RMU.

What are your expectations for this season and future seasons to come? I certainly expect us to win more games. We played in a lot of close games last season (fifteen one goal games) and we learned quite a bit from those experiences. We have a large senior class that has been through some turmoil and have learned a lot of lessons along the way. I am sure that they are hungry to have a great year. We have added some great people to our lineup that should contribute as well. When you reach a certain point in a program’s history you transition from being a competitive program to a winning program. I believe that we are at that point now and are poised for that next step, but it will always require our best effort.

This will be your third season as the head coach of this program and you have developed a great culture here. What traits do you look for in your players to help you accomplish this? We take a lot of pride in development, individual and team. Each game we want to give ourselves the best opportunity to win so we have to act the part in all areas of our lives. This means we look for players who have discipline, dedication, strong character and are coachable. A big part of how we coach our players is helping them to understand the meaning of accountability, both to themselves and to

others, because at the end of the day, you have to perform. We also help facilitate a sense of ownership in our program by allowing input from all players for any team dynamic. When you factor all those things in, you get a player who wants to play the game at their very best and works hard every single day.

This is the first true senior class for the colonial women. What do you want your athletes leaving with when they are done here at RMU?

2008-09 Outlook The Robert Morris University women’s ice hockey team enters a big mile stone in its fourth season, as it marks the first year the team will have on its roster a group of fouryear experienced seniors. Since the program’s initial start, the team has successively improved each year, and with the large amount of senior leadership this year, there is no limit on this Colonial squad. The RMU team will continue to follow their team motto of, “Success is a journey, not a destination.” This focus is one reason the Colonials have the ability to reach and even exceed expectations every season.    Entering his third year as the Colonial leader is head coach Nate Handrahan. In the 2008-09 season the Colonials return an experienced roster with 20 letterwinners, including 10 seniors that were with the program since its inaugural year. Joining the seniors are five juniors, five sophomores and three talented freshman to the squad this year.   “Our abundance of experience and the addition of quality players in our freshman class will add to our competitiveness,” said Handrahan. “We are very encouraged.”   The Colonial improvements in the past three years have been shown not only by the team’s competitive prowess on the ice, but also by the numbers. The team has gone from a 5-24-2 record in its first year to earning plus 10 wins in the past two seasons (11-22-2 – 2006-07, 12-21-1 – 2007-08). In 2006-07, the Colonial offense showed a huge improvement, earning 205 points, an increase of 89 points from the first season. Last season the team earned a consistent 201 points. The defense also proved its ability to silence its opponents in 2007-08 by allowing its opponents to only 99 goals, compared to 116 goals in 2006-07 and 131 goals in 2005-06.   This year, the team will face off against some of the toughest competition in the nation, including last year’s fifth-ranked team in Minnesota and the sixth top team in the country in St. Lawrence. Robert Morris will also compete

in an extremely strong CHA Conference that features former nationally ranked and CHA champion No. 7 Mercyhurst, as well as No. 10 Wayne State.   “I am very excited for this season to begin,” said Handrahan. “We have a great schedule that will challenge us and give us a gauge of where we are. I believe that we have taken some great strides in the past three years and we are ready to be even more competitive.”   The Colonials will bring an immense amount of experience and determination to the 200809 season and with that can be expected some very aggressive and spirited competition in the Robert Morris Island Sports Center.

Forwards 13 Returning From 2006-07 to 2007-08 Robert Morris proved it could be an offensive threat to its opponents, scoring 205 points in 2006-07 and 201 in 2007-08. Despite the lower numbers last season, the Colonials found themselves in just as many scoring situations, but just didn’t get the bounce their way. The Colonials return 13 of their forwards from last season, while also adding one newcomer. The 13 returners earned a combined 139 points, consisting of 66 goals and 73 assists.   “Last season we took some strides forward but also had to learn some hard lessons about finishing,” said Handrahan. “We have done a great job in working for opportunities but we seemed to be satisfied just to get the chance. I believe that through those experiences, our group of forwards have a drive to want more. This group has the ability to really do some good things, they just have to go and see the plan through from start to finish. We only added one freshman but I believe she will fit right in.”   Senior Morgan Beikrich led the forwards in points and assists last season with 18 and 13, respectively, while adding five goals. Beikrich also has 55 total career points, which leads the Robert Morris University

team. Senior co-captains Kristen Miles and Alissa Dorman led their team through their actions on and off the ice last season. On the ice Miles accounted for nine goals and seven assists for 16 points, which was third on the team. She contributed three multi-point games and had a string of points in five consecutive games toward the end of the season. Dorman racked up seven goals and five assists for 12 points. All three players have proved consistent in their three years at RMU and will be looked upon for another strong offensive season.   Joining the group of senior forwards are Megan Picinic, Kathryn Traynor, Ali Proodian and Angela Kost. Picinic had a strong performance last season earning 15 points, which was an 11-point increase from the season before. Traynor, Proodian and Kost gave solid performances as well, earning a combined 15 points.   Junior twins Jessica Riley and Jordan Riley carried their stellar freshman campaign over to the following season, earning a combined 11 points, consisting of five goals and six assists. Joining the Riley’s is Chelsea Walkland, who brought in a pair of assists and goals last season.   All three returning sophomores, Sara O’Malley, Maria Stoa and Kylie Rossler, had tremendous rookie seasons last year and made their presence on the team quickly evident. O’Malley led the team in goals with 11 and was second on the team in points (17) while also adding six assists. Her freshman performance earned her CHA All-Rookie Team honors, and she was named rookie of the week twice throughout the season. Stoa tied for second on the team in assists with 12 while also accounting for four goals and 16 points. Rossler put in seven goals and eight assists for 15 pints. Based on past performances, the sophomore class will be looked at as a principal part of the Colonial offense.   Joining this large group of returning forwards is one lone freshman, Brianna Delaney. The rookie was named MVP of the Sacred Heart

The Colonial net remains secure with All-CHA First Team selection Brianne McLaughlin retuning for her senior season. McLaughlin led the CHA in save percentage with a .913 average, was third in the CHA in goals against average at 2.82 and finished the season with 926 saves and nine wins. The already impressive goalie increased her experience and skills even more by competing in the U.S. Under-22 Series. The Ohio native is the most decorated player on the team, having racked up 10 CHA Defensive Player of the Week Honors, two USCHO.com National Player of the Week honors, and three All-CHA Conference honors in her three-year career. The Colonials will rely heavily on McLaughlin’s consistent and dominant performances this year.   “This has been a strength of ours for a number of years now,“ said Handrahan. “I would expect that trend to continue with even

more results. Brianne has proven herself to be very capable in making the game simpler for her. She has been recognized by USA Hockey with her appointment to their U-22 team, which is a great accomplishment, but I am sure that she is looking forward to backing that up with a great senior season.”   Sophomore Daneca Butterfield has the ability to take over the job of goalie when needed and put up strong performances, as shown from the outcome of several games last season. In 2007-08, Butterfield tallied three wins and a 2.10 GAA, allowing only eight goals and earning 80 saves in 228:28 minutes played.   “Daneca has come back in great shape after having a major injury after Christmas,” Handrahan said. “I would look for her to continue to develop into the goalie we know that she is.”   Entering only its fourth year in existence, the Robert Morris women’s ice hockey team is still in its infancy, but its rapid development over those years has produced a team that looks like it has been on the ice for years. Handrahan and his 23 Colonials’ ability to train harder and progress farther each season has created a 2008-09 squad that has more talent and experience than ever before.

The depth and intensity of the Colonial defense continues to get stronger every year. In the inaugural year of Colonial hockey the team managed to allow their opponents 131 goals, but as their experience increased that number decreased. In 2006-07 RMU allowed its opponents only 116 goals and this past season the team began to really shutdown its opponents, letting only 99 goals into the RMU net.   “For years we have had some quality defensemen but because we had limited numbers, they were overplayed, which led to some habits that were more for self preservation rather than effectiveness,” said Handrahan. “The upside to that is that our defensemen are very well experienced. There are not many situations that they have not seen. They are a seasoned group that can handle minutes as well as pressure situations. We have added some needed size and youth in our freshman class that should round out a very, very capable group.”   Juniors Mallory Giambra and Jacki Gibson highlighted the defensive unit last season with the two of them being ranked fifth and sixth, respectively, in the CHA for defensemen scoring. Last season, Giambra led the RMU defense in scoring for the second straight year and was tied for third overall in scoring with 16 points, which was made up of four goals and 12 assists. Gibson was fourth on the team in assists with 11 and also added three goals for 14 points last season. Giambra and Gibson will be depended on again this year for their leadership and aggressive play.   Adding experience and strength to the RMU defense are seniors Samantha Ullrich and Jenny Monteleone. Ullrich proved to be a key component to the Colonial squad last season as

she accounted for nine assists and two goals. She enters her senior season with 29 career points. Monteleone demonstrated her ability to fortify the defense last season by earning a +5 rating on the ice. She also accumulated five assists.   After an impressive freshman campaign, Whitney Pappas returns for her sophomore year to continue her job protecting the RMU net. Last season, she showed her ability to be an offensive threat as well, earning one goal and six assists for seven points on the year.   Adding additional depth to the RMU roster are newcomers Paige Pietrangelo and Kathryn Stack. Pietrangelo joins the Colonials after playing for the Hamilton Hawks, where she earned one goal and 10 assists for 11 points. The Ontario native was named junior athlete of the year in 2006 and earned the girl’s hockey award in grade 12. Stack, from Edmonton, Alberta, played for St. Francis Xavier High School and the Edmonton Thunder club team. She was named Global Edmonton Athlete of the Week, earned the Dr. George Caffaro Heart and Soul Award and was given the Silver Stick Award for being the most outstanding student.

Hockey in Pittsburgh

NCAA Division I hockey at Robert Morris University is the latest addition to a long tradition of hockey in Pittsburgh. Hockey in the Golden Triangle has a tradition of success, and the Colonials only hope to add to that tradition. Pittsburgh had the first amateur hockey team in the United States in 1897 and was a charter member of the International Professional Hockey League, the world’s first pro league, which began in 1904. The Pittsburgh club was one of five cities – Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.; Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.; Calumet, Mich.; and Hougton, Mich. – to form the IPHL. The IPHL disbanded after the 1907 season and the city would not see another pro team until 1925, when the Pittsburgh Pirates joined the National Hockey League in 1925. The stock market crash in 1929 left the Pirates cash-strapped, and the team moved to Philadelphia where it would fold just one year later.

In between the professional teams of the IPHL and NHL, the Pittsburgh Yellow Jackets and the Pittsburgh Hornets dominated the United States Amateur Hockey Association. The Yellow Jackets ruled the Western Division while the Hornets became the top team in the Eastern Division, and the teams met for the league championship in the 1924-25 season. After the Yellow Jackets defeated the Hornets in that 1925 championship tilt, the team entered the NHL and changed its name to the Pirates. Another Yellow Jackets team appeared in the city in 1931-32 as a member of the International-American Hockey League, but it folded after the 1932-33 season. After a one-year hiatus, the Shamrocks appeared for one season to be followed by another team with the name Hornets in 1936-37. The Hornets enjoyed a 20-year run in Pittsburgh, winning three Calder Cup Trophies – the championship trophy of the American Hockey League – in the 1950s.

Robert Morris University

72

The Hornets folded after the 1955-56 season only to reappear in 1961, winning a division title in 1964 and their fourth Calder Cup in 1967, before disappearing once again from the world of hockey. That was the first season of the Pittsburgh Penguins of the NHL, a team that came into the national spotlight in 1984 when it drafted Mario Lemieux. The Penguins improved in the league, eventually winning back-to-back Stanley Cup Championships in 1991 and 1992. The surge in popularity of the Penguins carried into the junior ranks with the formation of the Pittsburgh Hornets and Pittsburgh Forge. In addition, high school programs began to pop up all around the area in addition to club programs at local colleges and universities. RMU became the first school in the region to offer NCAA Division I hockey in 2004-05.

Gregory G. Dell’Omo, Ph.D. President of Robert Morris University Gregory G. Dell’Omo, Ph.D., president of Robert Morris University, presides over one of Pennsylvania’s most innovative independent institutions of higher learning. He began his tenure as president on Aug. 1, 2005.   Taking the reins of the University during a period of unparalleled growth, Dell’Omo quickly developed a clear vision for RMU as a place that provides transformational experiences for students through engaged learning. He soon assembled a committee of faculty, staff, students and trustees, and charged them with turning his vision into a roadmap for the future. By the end of Dell’Omo’s second year, the University had unveiled a refined mission statement, six core values, and a comprehensive fiveyear strategic plan to guide RMU into the year 2012. In addition, a new 10-year campus master plan was set in motion to guide RMU’s evolution to a more residential campus with a strong living-learning environment.   Dell’Omo’s tenure has been marked by a greater emphasis on internationalism in student experiences, faculty research and exchanges, and academic programs and partnerships, to better prepare students for success in today’s global society. Key achievements include increases in the number of RMU students studying abroad and the number of international students studying at RMU, and the establishment of academic partnerships with schools in Chile, China, Germany, Nicaragua, Turkey and Israel.   Dell’Omo also has committed to building the Institutional Advancement division by providing a greater focus on fundraising, alumni relations and brand building – all of which are key to supporting the University’s continued growth. And the pace of that growth has not slowed a bit under

Dell’Omo’s watch. In his first three years, he oversaw the construction or renovation of numerous buildings, the addition of five degree programs, and the launch of a new alumni magazine, athletic logo and mascot.   Known as a “people’s president,” Dell’Omo places a high level of importance on staying connected with the campus community. He has expanded the annual new student orientation and attends all freshman seminars to meet new students each fall. He holds biannual Town Hall Meetings to keep faculty and staff updated on the latest University happenings, and sometimes sits in on new employee orientation sessions. A strong supporter of RMU athletics, he regularly attends Colonial football, basketball and other sporting events. He has reached out to thousands of RMU alumni by attending alumni events in Pittsburgh as well as New York, Miami, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Baltimore and Washington, D.C.   Dell’Omo came to RMU after 14 years at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, where he served as vice president for external affairs from 2002 to 2005.

He joined Saint Joseph’s in 1991 as an assistant professor of management, moving up the faculty ranks to department chair, associate professor and professor. Before SJU, Dell’Omo served on the faculty at Canisius College and the Cornell University Extension Program. Prior to his career in academia, he spent six years working in human resources in the New York City retail industry and four years conducting research on various employment issues.   Dell’Omo holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from Montclair State University, a master’s degree in industrial relations from Rutgers and a Ph.D. in industrial relations/ human resource management from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He holds certificates from the Harvard University Institute for Educational Management and the Harvard Seminar for New Presidents.   Dell’Omo sits on the boards of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, West Penn Allegheny Health System and the Rutgers Food Policy Institute.

athletic director.”   Likewise, Coleman believes the timing was perfect for him to lead the athletic program at Robert Morris University.   “The time was right for me to make this professional change,” Coleman said at the time of his hiring. “I have always had a passion for athletics and for 15 years I held management positions in health care. As the athletic director, I can now merge these two positions into one that really excites me.”   From 1988 through 2005, Coleman worked as an assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School Medicine. From 1983 to 1989, he was the attending psychiatrist at Western Pyschiatric Institute and Clinic in Pittsburgh.   Coleman earned his medical degree from the The Pennsylvania State University School of Medicine in Hershey in 1983. In 1979, he earned an undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Pennsylvania.   At RMU, Coleman turned a perennial

losing softball program into NEC champions. Prior to his arrival as head coach in 1991, the Colonials posted a record of 19-45 in the previous three seasons. During his 18 years as head coach, the Colonials have posted an overall record of 438-392-4 (.528), including a record of 186-72-2 (.719) in conference play. In 2007, he garnered his 400th career victory in game one of doubleheader sweep of Akron thanks to a 3-2 victory. He guided the Colonials to an overall record of 119-62 (.657) and four conference championships in his first four years, and in 1994, his team received the first national ranking in RMU history – regardless of sport – when his team was ranked as high as No. 23 in the USA Today / National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA).   Coleman’s success as head softball coach has come not only on the field, but in the classroom. His players include eight District II Academic All-Americans, two NEC Spring Scholar-Athletes for softball (Stephani Ehrenfeld in 2000 and Nicole Aloi in 2001) and numerous NEC All-Academic Honor Roll selections. During the 1999-2000 academic year, RMU achieved the secondhighest cumulative team grade point average among all NCAA Division I softball programs according to the NFCA, finishing with a 3.409 grade point average, behind only Louisiana Tech (3.571).   Prior to his appointment as head coach at Robert Morris, Coleman compiled a record of 359-158 (.694) in 16 seasons coaching summer softball, mostly with the Pittsburgh Patriots 18-and-under traveling fast-pitch team from 1986-91. He guided the Patriots of the Amateur Softball Association to three national tournaments in his final four years at the helm.

RMU’S NEC TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONSHIPS SINCE 1990

2007-08 Season in Review

  The success RMU athletics has had in recent years followed the seasons before it, as the Colonial football team finished its 2000 season a perfect 10-0, the first perfect campaign for any sport at Robert Morris. In the process, the team won its second straight NCAA I-AA Mid-Major National Championship, according to Don Hansen’s National Football Weekly Gazette. The program celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2003 and moved into its own on-campus football stadium, named Joe Walton Stadium in honor of the program’s only head coach, in 2005.   The women’s crew team claimed two straight national championships in the varsity four classification at the prestigious Dad Vail Regatta in Philadelphia, Pa., in 2000 and 2001.   The trend of success by Colonial athletics in the new millennium should come as no surprise. Five teams achieved national rankings during the 1990s, with the 1994 women’s softball team reaching No. 23, the 1994 men’s soccer team peaking at No. 16, the 1996 football squad finishing second in the NCAA I-AA non-scholarship ranks, the 1997 football team placing third and the 1999 football team placing first.   Robert Morris has sent 16 teams to NCAA Tournaments since 1982. Men’s basketball and volleyball have made an NEC record five appearances, with men’s basketball qualifying in 1982, 1983, 1989, 1990 and 1992 and volleyball in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003. The Colonial men’s soccer team has also appeared in the NCAA Tournament three times (1993, 1994 and 2005).   Robert Morris University has also had several athletes continue their athletic career in professional sports. The late Tim Hall (1996) was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the sixth round of the 1996 NFL Draft as a running back. Then, in 2001, former offensive lineman Hank Fraley (1999) became the starting center for the Philadelphia Eagles after being signed to the practice squad during the 2000 season. He currently is the starting center for the Cleveland Browns.   Men’s soccer player Musa Shannon (1997) was drafted by the Tampa Bay Mutiny of Major League Soccer as the 28th overall pick in the 1997 MLS College Draft. Five other former Colonial men’s soccer players have played professionally, as Steve Bell (1997) and Doug Petras (1994) saw action with the Pittsburgh Riverhounds, while Rhian Dodds (2003) plays for the Kilmarnock Football Club of the Scottish Premier League.   Athletes are not the only ties that RMU athletics has to the professional ranks. Head football coach Joe Walton came to the Colonials after 35 years of National Football League experience, including seven years as the head coach of the New York Jets. Alongside Walton is another former NFL alum in John Banaszak, who was promoted to assistant head coach in the spring of 2008. Banaszak, the former head coach at Washington & Jefferson College, was a member of Pittsburgh Steelers when the team won Super Bowls X, XIII and XIV.   Former Colonial men’s soccer head coach John Kowalski also worked as the head coach for the Pittsburgh Spirit of the Major Indoor Soccer League, the Tampa Bay Mutiny of the MLS and the Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the A-League. He has come full circle, as he is now head coach of the Colonial women’s team, a program that began in 1992.

2008-09 Colonials

Robert Morris University Athletics stands for success. Since 1990, the Colonials have claimed 27 Northeast Conference regular-season championships and 26 league tournament titles among 23 sports, including eight regular-season titles in volleyball, five regular-season championships in football, five NEC Tournament titles in softball and three NEC Tournament championships in men’s soccer.   The 2007-08 athletic season saw the Colonial athletic programs continue to rank near the top of their respective conferences, as the men’s basketball team claimed its first Northeast Conference regular-season title since 1992, while the women’s basketball program claimed its second straight NEC Tournament championship and subsequent appearance in the NCAA Tournament.   Individually, a record number of Colonials took home major conference awards. Tony Lee and Sade Logan earned NEC Player of the Year accolades in men’s and women’s basketball, respectively, while linebacker Chad Wengert was named the NEC Defensive Player of the Year in football. Tawyna Storino of the volleyball squad was named the NEC Setter of the Year, while a pair of Colonials were tabbed the NEC Rookie of the Year in their respective sports. Kathleen Caggiano garnered the honor in women’s soccer, while Jessica Calderone took home the accolade in softball. Finally, Ryan Cruthers was named the College Hockey America Player of the Year.   The exploits of the RMU athletic program in 2007-08 followed a 2006-07 athletic season that could arguably go down as one of the greatest in RMU’s Division I history. A number of team and individual accomplishments highlighted the year, as the Colonial women’s basketball team completed one of the greatest turnarounds in Division I history by claiming its third NEC Tournament Championship and its first-ever NCAA Tournament bid.   The Robert Morris men’s ice hockey team pulled off one of the biggest upsets in school history in January of 2007 by garnering a 4-2 victory at Notre Dame, which entered the game ranked No. 2 in the country.   Individually in 2006-07, senior Stephanie Kuhn of the RMU women’s outdoor track and field team qualified for the NCAA Championships in the javelin. Kuhn, the only student-athlete to qualify for the NCAA Championships in track and field, turned the trick twice in her four years on the team, also accomplishing the feat as a freshman. Off the field, a total of six student-athletes were named to their respective ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District II Teams, while senior Ray Gensler of the football team was named an Academic All-American for the second straight year, the first student-athlete in school history to earn Academic All-America honors twice.   The 2006-07 athletics campaign followed a 200506 season in which the men’s soccer team added to its illustrious history by downing No. 1 seed Monmouth, 3-2 in overtime, to claim its third NEC Tournament title and first since 1994. The Robert Morris softball squad, under the guidance of director of athletics Craig Coleman, also captured its fourth regular-season championship, tying Long Island for the top spot with a 17-3 league record.   During the 2004-05 athletics campaign, the Colonial softball squad captured its third NEC regular-season title with a 17-3 league record, then swept through the NEC Tournament for its fifth tournament title and first appearance in the NCAA Tournament in school history.

The Robert Morris University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is not all about winning on the field or on the court. Academics is as much a triumph as the athletic competitions themselves. Robert Morris University is committed to the total development of its student-athletes.   The 2007-08 academic year followed the trend set before it as 56 Colonials were named to the Northeast Conference Fall Academic Honor Roll, 31 to the NEC Winter Academic Honor Roll and 85 to the NEC Spring Academic Honor Roll. A pair of individuals were also named Student-Athlete of the Year by the NEC in their respective sports, as Taryn Reichard garnered the honor in women’s soccer, while Jeff Witmyer took home the honor in both men’s indoor track and field and outdoor track and field.   Additionally, Robert Morris had six student-athletes named to their respective ESPN The Magazine District II Academic AllAmerica Teams. Joining Reichard (women’s soccer) and Witmyer (track and field) were Mark Szymanski (football), Brooke Panepinto and Susan Perich (softball) and Joel Gasper, a member of the RMU men’s ice hockey squad who was named to the ESPN The Magazine District II At-Large Academic All-America Team.   In all, 14 of the University’s 23 squads finished with team GPA’s of 3.0 or higher in the 2007-08 academic year, and nearly 65 percent of all RMU’s 550 student-athletes posted a 3.0 or higher grade point average.   The reason for RMU’s success in the classroom is simple. Colonial student-athletes receive the very best support when it comes to their academic curriculum. Evening study halls are monitored by the department’s student services personnel, and academic counseling is available from both the athletic department and the University’s enrollment management office. Graduation is the goal, and Robert Morris University strives to ensure its student-athletes attain that lofty goal.

and 1992 when the Northeast Conference men's basketball tournament was held there, and the Colonials won the title each time. The facility also housed the same event in 1986.   The dedication of the Sewall Center was the culmination of a $6 million campaign launched by the University in June of 1984. Seventeen months later, the inaugural game drew 2,880 fans as the Colonials fell to Duquesne University, 80-65. Nov. 30, 1985. Nevertheless, the enthusiastic response by the community facilitated the successful completion of the campaign.   The idea for a multi-purpose facility was conceived in a series of meetings between the University and community leaders. Business and industry representatives indicated the critical need for a center for executive training and development. At the same time, Moon Township business and civic leaders spoke of their need for a conveniently located center for community events.   The partnership continues through the Charles L. Sewall Center Advisory Committee, comprised of community leaders, and confirms the University’s fruitful relationship with the community it serves.

Built at a cost of $2.5 million and opened in the fall of 1998, the North Athletic Complex on RMU’s Moon Township campus serves as the home of the Robert Morris men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s tennis and softball teams.   The North Athletic Complex was built after clearing a 24-acre parcel of land that was nothing more than a heavily wooded hilltop. it now consists of two natural grass soccer fields (one for games and the other for practices), nine tennis / basketball courts that are fenced and lighted, a softball field and a pavilion that features a covered area for picnics, restrooms and storage areas.   As well as hosting various Division I athletic events, the North Athletic Complex is used for intramurals and group functions. Five-Star Basketball Camp, which has hosted its annual summer camp at Robert Morris University for 28 years, uses the North Athletic Complex each summer to showcase some of the nation’s top high school talent to college coaches.   The North Athletic Complex hosted its first Northeast Conference Championship in the fall of 2003, when Central Connecticut State claimed the women’s soccer title. In the spring of 2005, Robert Morris hosted the NEC championship for softball, and the host Colonials went on to claim their sixth league title thanks to a 6-4 victory over Wagner.

RMU DEPARTMENT OF ATHLETICS MISSION STATEMENT The Department of Athletics at Robert Morris University provides opportunities for our studentathletes to receive a quality experience both in the classroom and in intercollegiate athletic competition. Athletics enhances the intellectual, social, and personal development of our studentathletes, helping them to grow through their experience at the University and to prepare for meaningful careers and lives. Toward this purpose, the Department of Athletics promotes academic achievement, good sporting and ethical conduct, and equitable opportunity for students and staff, including women and minorities. The guiding principle of the University is to focus on academics first; therefore we view our successes based not on wins and losses but as linked to the educational mission of the University and the welfare of our student-athletes.
