Head Coach Notre Dame ‘91 - 15th Season Gerry Quinlan  is  in  his  15th  season  as  head  women’s  rowing  coach  at  Saint  Joseph’s  University  and  has  developed the   Hawks   into   one   of   the   East’s   most   competitive   programs.     Including   his   tenure   at   Saint   Joseph’s,   Quinlan   has amassed  more  than  two  decades  of  collegiate  head  coaching  experience. Despite  losing  their  most  successful  four-­‐year  class  to  graduation  in  2011,  in  the  past  two  seasons,  the  Hawks  have posted  solid  results  to  build  upon. Saint  Joseph’s  medaled  in  three  events  at  the  2012  Atlantic  10  Championships,  and at  the  Aberdeen  Dad  Vail  Regatta,the  defending  champion  Second  Varsity  8  earned  a  bronze  medal  for  its  third  con-­‐ secutive  medal  in  the  prestigious  event.  At  the  2012  Dad  Vails,  Quinlan  was  presented  with  the  Matthew  Ledwith Coach’s  Award,  which  is  given  to  the  outstanding  coach  from  the  previous  year’s  regatta.   Quinlan’s  2011  crew  had  one  of  the  best  seasons  in  school  history,  highlighted  by  two  firsts  for  the  program  -­‐  a gold  medal  at  the  Aberdeen  Dad  Vail  Regatta  and  the  team  title  in  the  Atlantic  10  Championships.  The  Hawks’  Second Varsity  8  captured  the  program’s  first  Dad  Vail  gold  medal  and  the  Varsity  4  took  home  a  silver,  to  help  SJU  finish  sec-­‐ ond  in  the  team  standings.  Saint  Joseph’s  won  the  Freshman  8  at  the  conference  meet,  and  earned  top-­‐three  finish-­‐ es  in  three  other  events  to  give  the  Hawks  the  league’s  team  crown  for  the  first  time  ever. In  2010,  the  Hawks  main-­‐ QUINLAN’S  RÉSUMÉ tained  their  status  as  one  of  the  top  teams  in  the  Atlantic  10  Conference,  turned  in  medal-­‐winning  performances  (one silver,  two  bronze)  at  the  Aberdeen  Dad  Vail  Regatta,  and  ended  the  year  with  a  trip  to  the  prestigious  Henley  Royal Head  Rowing  Coach Regatta   for   the   second   time   in   school   history.   SJU’s   Varsity   8   also   set   a   record   in   becoming   the   only   team   to   advance Saint  Joseph’s  (W) 1999-­‐Present to  the  Grand  Final  at  the  Dad  Vail  Regatta  for  six  consecutive  years.   La  Salle  (M&W) 1997-­‐98 The  2009  Hawks  earned  a  number  of  firsts  for  the  program.  Saint  Joseph’s  won  its  first-­‐ever  Atlantic  10  titles  as  the Northwestern  (M&W) 1991-­‐97 Varsity  8  and  Quad  boats  earned  the  gold  medals  at  the  conference  championships.  Quinlan  was  recognized  as  the Notre  Dame  (W) 1989-­‐91 Atlantic  10  Coach  of  the  Year  for  the  first  time  in  his  career,  while  the  Hawks  matched  their  best-­‐ever  team  result  with a  third-­‐place  finish.    The  Hawks  earned  a  bronze  medal,  which  gave  them  the  most  medals  of  any  team  in  the  previous Assistant  Rowing  Coach four  years.  SJU’s  Freshman  8  also  advanced  to  the  Grand  Final  for  the  seventh  consecutive  season.   Saint  Joseph’s  (M&W) 1998-­‐99 In  2008,  Quinlan’s  charges  placed  a  then  best-­‐ever  third  as  a  team  at  the  Atlantic  10  Championship.    The  Varsity  8 boat  earned  its  first-­‐ever  medal  at  A-­‐10s,  placing  second,    while  also  taking  first  at  the  Jesuit  Invitational  and  the  Kelly Cup.  The  rest  of  the  Hawks  also  dominated  at  the  city-­‐wide  Kelly  Cup  races,  taking  first  place  in  every  contest. Quinlan   guided   the   Hawks   to   victory   in   the   Varsity   8   at   the   2006   Dad   Vail   Regatta   while   that   crew   earned   the   school’s   first-­‐ever   trip   to   the   Henley  Royal Regatta  in  England.  The  Hawks  rowed  to  a  silver-­‐medal  finish  in  the  Dad  Vail  Varsity  8  in  2007  while  the  Freshman  8  took  silver  in  2008.

A  1991  graduate  of  Notre  Dame,  Quinlan  spent  his  prep  career  rowing  at  Monsignor  Bonner  High  School  in  Drexel  Hill,  Pa.    He  and  his  wife  Linda,  a  Hawks’ assistant  coach,  reside  in  Philadelphia  with  their  daughters,  Maeve  and  Tess.

JESUIT INVITATIONAL Saint  Joseph’s  Rowing  established  the  Jesuit  Invitational  in  1999  and  it  has  become  a  major  race  in  the  collegiate  rowing  season,  featuring  solely  Jesuit  col-­‐ leges.    The  Jesuit  Invitational  is  held  every  year  in  March  on  the  Cooper  River  in  Pennsauken,  N.J.   The  Casey  Ferrone  Memorial  Trophy  is  awarded  to  the  Men’s  Varsity  8  champion,  while  the  Robert  Gillin,  Jr.,  Memorial  Trophy  is  awarded  to  the  Women’s Varsity  8  winner.   The  Cannonball  Trophy  is  given  to  the  overall  team  champion.  It  is  named  in  honor  of  Saint  Ignatius  Loyola,  the  founder  of  the  Society  of  Jesus,  who  had  his leg  shattered  by  a  cannonball  while  defending  Spain  from  an  attack  by  France.  The  Cannonball  Trophy  serves  as  a  reminder  that  all  good  things  start  with  pain. The   glory   of   winning   is   only   possible   by   withstanding   the   mental   and   physical   pain   of   the   2000-­‐meter   race   course.   The   trophy   is   awarded   to   the   school   with the  highest  combined  points  in  the  day’s  races.  It  is  a  traveling  trophy  which  the  winner  returns  every  year.  The  winning  team  receives  a  small  cannonball  that is  theirs  to  keep  as  a  reminder  of  their  championship  performance.

2013-­‐14 SAINT  JOSEPH’S  WOMEN’S  ROWING  MEDIA  GUIDE 14


A PROUD  TRADITION The  Saint  Joseph’s  rowing  programs  have  a  proud  history  of  success  on the  water,  but  a  number  of  alums  have  achieved  a  great  amount  of  post-­‐grad-­‐ uate  success  in  the  sport  as  well.    Mike  Teti  ’78,  Teresa Zarzeczny  Bell  ’88 and Renee  Hykel  ’01 are  three  SJU  legends  that  have  gone  on  to  even  greater  suc-­‐ cesses  since  their  days  on  Hawk  Hill.    All  three  have  taken  their  rowing  careers to  the  highest  levels  of  international  competition,  making  the  SJU  rowing  pro-­‐ gram  a  cradle  of  champions. Arguably  the  best-­‐known  oarsman  in  America,  Mike  Teti  was  a  top  Hawk rower,  graduating  from  SJU  with  a  sociology  degree  in  1978. “Saint  Joseph’s  gave  me  the  opportunity  to  compete  and  also  the  oppor-­‐ tunity  for  a  great  education,”  Teti  says.    “I  owe  SJU  a  great  debt  for  all  of  the opportunities  I  received.” From  1977-­‐93,  Teti  rowed  on  11  national  teams,  including  three  trips  to the  Olympic  Games.    He  won  24  national  championships,  a  gold  medal  in  the men’s   eight   at   the   1987   World   Championships   and   a   bronze   medal   in   the same   event   at   the   1988   Olympics.     He   was   named   the   1987   United   States Rowing  Male  Athlete  of  the  Year. Teti  achieved  even  greater  notoriety  as  a  coach,  guiding  the  U.S.  men’s open  eight  squad  to  an  unprecedented  three  straight  world  championships. He  also  coached  the  men’s  four  with  coxswain  to  world  championship  gold. In  1996  he  led  the  lightweight  men’s  four  to  an  Olympic  bronze  medal  before being   named   USRowing’s   Head   Men’s   Sweep   Coach,   the   highest   coaching honor  in  the  country,  in  October  of  that  year. Teti   became   the   U.S.   Olympic   coach   following   the   2000   Games,   and   led the   men’s   eight   boat   to   gold   in   Athens   in   2004,   a   feat   that   the   United   States had   not   achieved   since   1964   when   another   coach   with   Hawk   ties,   Al Rosenberg,   led   the   Americans   to   victory.   He   also   guided   the   U.S.   Men   to   the bronze  medal  at  the  2008  Olympics  in  Beijing.   Teti  is  currently  the  head  coach  of  the  men’s  crew  team  at  the  University of  California  and  was  inducted  into  the  National  Rowing  Federation’s  Hall  of Fame  in  2010.   Teresa   Bell   is   no   stranger   to   success   on   the   international   level,   either. Her  Olympic  dream  began  in  the  fall  of  1992  when  the  International  Olympic Committee  announced  that  her  event,  the  lightweight  double  sculls,  would be  a  part  of  the  Olympic  Games  in  1996. In  truth,  Bell’s  journey  really  began  back  in  1985.    In  that  year  the  soph-­‐ omore  joined  the  Saint  Joseph’s  women’s  rowing  club  team.  By  1988,  she  was a  part-­‐time  member  of  the  varsity  squad,  and  her  Hawk  Hill  career  culminat-­‐ ed  in  victory  in  the  women’s  singles  event  at  the  prestigious  Dad  Vail  Regatta. Bell  later  went  on  to  be  a  member  of  both  the  Crescent  Boat  Club  and  the Fairmount  Rowing  Club,  for  whom  she  still  rows  when  she  is  in  Philadelphia. In   1996,   Bell   was   preparing   for   Olympic   competition   with   intense   work-­‐ outs  three  times  a  day.    She  put  in  most  of  her  work  in  Tennessee,  the  home

of the   United   States   Women’s   Rowing Center.     She   also   spent   time   training   in Georgia   in   preparation   for   the   Olympic Trials.     Before   the   Olympic   Games,   she spent   a   month   rowing   in   Europe   before returning  home  for  the  Atlanta  games. This   exhausting   routine   helped   pre-­‐ pare  Bell  for  the  rigors  of  the  highest  level of  international  competition,  but  all  of  the work   paid   off   in   the   end   as   Bell   and   her partner,   Lindsay   Burns,   took   the   silver medal  in  the  lightweight  double  sculls. From  Hawk  Hill  to  the  Olympic  medal stand,   Bell   never   forgot   her   roots.   “I enjoyed   my   experience   at   Saint   Joseph’s,” Bell   says.     “It   made   me   who   I   am   today. Teresa  Bell  was  a  silver  medalist Besides  rowing,  Saint  Joseph’s  taught  me  to in  the  1996  Olympic  Games.   be   open-­‐minded   and   that   has   really   helped me.” Following  the  Olympics,  Bell  placed  fifth  in  the  same  event  at  the  1997 World  Championships.    She  was  inducted,  along  with  Teti,  as  a  member  of  the inaugural  class  on  the  Saint  Joseph’s  Athletics  Hall  of  Fame  in  1999. SJU’s  influence  is  still  being  felt  in  the  rowing  community  as  Class  of   one of  the  top  names  in  the  sport.    She  is  a  five-­‐time  member  of  the  U.S.  National Team   and   competed   at   the   World   Championships   every   year   from   2003   to 2006.     In   2005,   the   former   Saint   Joseph’s   walk-­‐on   took   silver   in   the   light-­‐ weight   double   sculls   at   the   World   Championships   in   Gifu,   Japan.     In   2007, Hykel  was  the  U.S.  National  Champion  in  the  lightweight  single  sculls. The   year   2008   marked   Hykel’s   first   trip   to   the   Olympic   Games   as   she traveled   to   Beijing   to   compete   in   the   lightweight   double   sculls   event,   the same  event  Teresa  Bell  took  silver  in  at  the  1996  Games.    Hykel  and  her  part-­‐ ner,  former  SJU  assistant  rowing  coach  Jen  Goldsack,  just  missed  the  medal final  after  reaching  the  A/B  semifinal. Teti,  Bell  and  Hykel  are  just  three  of  more  than  a  dozen  Hawks  to  com-­‐ pete  internationally,  as  athletes  such  as  Sean  Drea  and  the  Flanigan  brothers, Donald  and  Richard,  have  done  Saint  Joseph’s  proud  at  the  highest  levels  of the  sport. In   addition   to   these   individuals,   the   Saint   Joseph’s   rowing   program   con-­‐ tinues   to   write   new   chapters   in   its   ever-­‐expanding   legacy.     Since   1999,   the Hawk  men’s  and  women’s  teams  have  combined  to  finish  first  or  second  in the   race   for   the   coveted   Jack   Bratton   Trophy,   awarded   to   the   Dad   Vail Regatta’s  overall  points  champion,  four  times,  most  recently  in  2010. The   women’s   program,   meanwhile,   has   developed   into   one   of   the region’s  most  formidable. The  2006  season  was  a  banner  one  for  the  Hawk  program  as  a  whole,  as SJU   turned   in   its   then-­‐best-­‐ever   finishes   at   the   San   Diego   Crew   Classic   and Atlantic  10  Championships,  and  winning  gold  in  the  Varsity  8  at  the  Dad  Vail Regatta.     The   2006   team   also   competed   in   the   prestigious   Henley   Royal Regatta  in  the  United  Kingdom,  a  first  for  Saint  Joseph’s. In  2009,  the  Hawks’  Varsity  8  set  a  record  in  becoming  the  only  team  to advance  to  the  Grand  Final  of  the  Dad  Vail  Regatta  for  five  consecutive  years and   increased   that   mark   to   six   straight   in   2010.   SJU’s   Freshman   8   also advanced  to  the  Grand  Final  for  eight  years  in  a  row.  The  2010  season  culmi-­‐ nated   with   Saint   Joseph’s   competing   at   Henley   for   the   second  time  in  school history,  while  in  2011,  the  Hawks  won  their  first  Atlantic  10  Conference  team championship.  

The Hawks  have  made  two  trips  to  the  Henley  Royal  Regatta,  with  the  most recent  being  in  2010.

Don DiJulia Vice  President  for  Athletics Athletic  Director

SAINT JOSEPH’S   UNIVERSITY ATHLETICS   MISSION   STATEMENT The  Mission  of  the  Athletics  Department  at  Saint  Joseph’s University  reflects  the  Mission  of  the  University  by  using the   programs   within   Athletics   as   a   way   to   develop   the whole  person  and  preparing  men  and  women  for  others.   • To  educate  the  whole  person  by  complementing  the   academic  experience  with  athletic  and  recreational  programs  and   activities  outside  the  classroom. • To  create  an  environment  for  personal  growth  through  openness,   respect,  and  a  concern  for  others. • To  communicate  the  value  of  community  and  family  through  team   work  and  sportsmanship. • To  provide  opportunities  for  students  to  learn  self-­‐discipline,   responsibility,  decision-­‐making,  and  attainment  of  goals. •   To  provide  opportunities  for  students  to  participate  and  compete  in  a   first-­‐class  manner. • To  provide  equitable  opportunities  for  all  students  and  staff,  including   women  and  minorities. • To  advance  the  University  regionally  and  nationally  through   intercollegiate  athletics.

The Saint  Joseph’s  Hawk  mascot  has  been  flapping  its  wings  for  more  than  a  half  a  century.   One   of   the   most   famous   mascots   in   college   sports,   the   Hawk   is   best   known   for   staying   in   constant motion  by  flapping  its  wings  throughout  every  basketball  game  and  representing  the  Saint  Joseph’s  motto, “The  Hawk  Will  Never  Die”.   Saint  Joseph’s  athletic  teams  have  been  recognized  with  the  nickname  “Hawks”  since  1929.    At  that time,  the  school’s  yearbook  editor  initiated  a  contest  among  the  student  body  for  a  symbol.    More  than  100 submissions  were  narrowed,  with  “Hawks”  winning  out  over  “Grenadiers”  by  a  slim  margin.    The  name  was appropriate  because  it  typified  “the  fighting  spirit  of  our  crimson  and  gray  athletes  and  it  is  suggestive  of the  aerial  attack  which  has  made  our  football  team  famous.”  Football,  ironically,  was  discontinued  at  SJU following  the  1939  season. The   Hawk   mascot   has   garnered   numerous   accolades   in   its   57-­‐year   history,   and   in   2013,   it   was   named “College  Basketball’s  Best  Tradition”  by  NCAA.com.  .  It  has  been  selected  as  the  nation’s  top  mascot  by  The Sporting  News,  Sports  Illustrated,  Sports  Illustrated  for  Kids,  Street  &  Smith’s  Basketball  Yearbook and  ESPN College  Basketball magazine  and  was  a  nominee  for  the  2008  Mascot  Hall  of  Fame.   2013-­‐14  SAINT  JOSEPH’S  WOMEN’S  ROWING  MEDIA  GUIDE 19

THE  JESUIT  TRADITION OF  ACADEMIC  EXCELLENCE Saint  Joseph’s  nationally-­‐recognized  aca-­‐ demic   reputation   is   confirmed   by   ongoing acknowledgment   in   Barron’s,   U.S.   News   & World  Report  and  Peterson’s.  The  Jesuit  tra-­‐ dition   of   intellectual   inquiry   and   personal concern  manifests  itself  in  small,  challenging classes  taught  by  a  caring  faculty.    Graduate assistants   do   not   teach,   so   undergraduates can  be  sure  they  are  receiving  the  very  best educational  experience  from  trained  experts. One-­‐on-­‐one   interaction   between   students and  faculty  is  a  reality  at  Saint  Joseph’s. A   solid   liberal   arts   curriculum   provides across-­‐the-­‐board  learning  for  every  student. Supporting   that   curriculum   are   comprehen-­‐ sive   academic   majors   and   learning   facilities. The  result  is  a  broad  education  that  prepares students  not  only  for  employment  and  grad-­‐ uate  school,  but  for  life  itself. In   the   fall   of   1998,   SJU   opened   the   $25 million  Owen  A.  Mandeville  Hall,  which  hous-­‐ es  the  Erivan  K.  Haub  School  of  Business,  the Center   for   Food   Marketing   and   the   region's first   "Teletorium"   and   "Moot   Boardrooms." An  87,000-­‐square-­‐foot  international  academ-­‐ ic   center   featuring   state-­‐of-­‐the-­‐art   distance learning   technology,   it   is   located   near   the corner  of  54th  Street  and  City  Avenue. A  HISTORY  OF  SERVICE The  students  of  Saint  Joseph’s  University are  dedicated  to  making  today’s  world  even better.   A   natural   spirit   of   volunteerism   has enabled   the   University’s   community   service programs   to   become   the   most   popular extracurricular  activities  on  campus.    In  addi-­‐ tion,  a  Service  Learning  program  allows  stu-­‐

dents to   receive   academic   credit   for   their work  outside  the  classroom. SJU   offers   local,   national   and   interna-­‐ tional   opportunities   for   student   service. From   North   Philadelphia   to   Camden,   N.J.; from   New   Orleans   to   the   Appalachian Mountains,  Saint  Joseph’s  students  embrace the   Jesuit   mission   of   serving   those   in   need. The   Thanksgiving   Dinner   Dance   for   area   sen-­‐ ior  citizens  and  the  Hand-­‐in-­‐Hand  Festival  for the  handicapped  are  two  annual  student-­‐run events  that  draw  thousands  of  special  visitors to  campus  for  fun  and  friendship. IDEAL  CAMPUS  LOCATION SJU’s   City   Avenue   location   combines   the best   of   dynamic   Philadelphia   with   the   subur-­‐ ban,   residential   setting   of   the   elegant   Main Line.    Saint  Joseph’s  65  acres  span  two  coun-­‐ ties,   allowing   students   to   literally   enjoy   the best  of  both  worlds.    The  city  of  Philadelphia, with   its   tremendous  wealth  of  historical,  cul-­‐ tural,  social  and  athletic  attractions,  is  easily accessible,   while   the   safety,   serenity   and greenery   of   a   suburban   campus   are   right   at hand. The   friendly   atmosphere   and   close-­‐knit campus  ensure  that  students  don’t  get  lost  in either   the   literal   or   the   figurative   sense   at Saint   Joseph’s.   Expanded   library,   computer and  athletic  facilities  add  a  big-­‐time  “feel”  to this  growing  university. SUCCESSFUL  STUDENTS Men   and   women   leave   Saint   Joseph’s prepared.  The  University  boasts  an  excellent record   of   placing   its   graduates   in   first-­‐time

jobs, professional   schools   and   other advanced  degree  programs.    Part-­‐time  work and   internships   provide   real-­‐world   experi-­‐ ences,   the   kind   which   delight   future   employ-­‐ ers.  And  with  its  many  diverse  student  organ-­‐ izations,   SJU   offers   ample   opportunities   to assume  leadership  positions. An   extensive   on-­‐campus   recruitment program   provides   graduates   with   a   head start   in   their   employment   search.     Regular meetings   with   faculty   advisors,   along   with advisory   programs   in   the   health   professions and   in   pre-­‐law,   assist   students   who   wish   to further  their  schooling. PHILADELPHIA SJU’s   Philadelphia   location   gives   stu-­‐ dents   access   to   two   worlds.   The   campus resembles  a  park,  surrounded  by  the  stately homes   of   Philadelphia’s   historic   Main   Line suburbs.    Yet  students  have  access  to  the  cul-­‐ tural,   commercial   and   recreational   activities of  downtown  Philadelphia  -­‐–  only  a  short  ride away.  SJU  students  take  frequent  advantage of   the   artistic   and   cultural   resources Philadelphia   offers,   as   well.   They   visit   the Philadelphia   Museum   of   Art;   the Pennsylvania   Academy   of   the   Fine   Arts;   the Franklin   Institute   Science   Museum;   the Academy   of   Music,   which   houses   ballet   and opera;  and  the  new  Kimmel  Center,  home  to the   Philadelphia   Orchestra.   In   addition,   SJU students   enjoy   rooting   for   Philadelphia’s teams   in   the   four   major   professional   sports leagues.
