WELCOME TO ST. MARY'S COLLEGE Dear Prospective Student-Athlete: We are pleased that you are considering St. Mary’s College of Maryland and the Seahawk athletic program. If you are looking for a collegiate experience that combines one of the nation’s premier public liberal arts colleges with a dynamic intercollegiate athletic program, then St. Mary’s should be at the top of your list. Our talented faculty and staff, renowned liberal arts curriculum, committed coaching staff, outstanding athletic facilities, and picturesque campus bordered by the St. Mary’s River are what make this College truly special. As an NCAA Division III institution competing in the highly regarded Capital Athletic Conference, we emphasize the education and intellectual development of each student-athlete. However, we are also committed to recruiting athletically gifted students to participate on our varsity athletic teams. It is our goal to compete for CAC league titles, NCAA postseason play, and, ultimately, national championships. We have had a number of All-Americans, Academic All-Americans® as well as regional and all-conference performers since becoming a founding member of the CAC in 1989. Another reason to consider St. Mary’s College of Maryland is the Michael P. O'Brien Athletics & Recreation Center which opened in the spring of 2005. Serving as the home of the athletic department, the Center features one of the largest and finest aquatic centers in the region with a 25-yard pool and a 50-meter competition pool under one roof. In addition, the 110,000-square foot building boasts a state-of-the-art fitness center with top-ofthe-line weight lifting equipment and cardio workout machines, an outstanding competition arena for volleyball and basketball, recreational courts, a movement room, and an action-packed rock wall climbing area. This multiuse facility is the activity center of our campus. In closing, I invite you to look through this publication and learn more about our programs and facilities. However, the very best way to experience St. Mary’s is to visit our campus, meet with our faculty and staff, and see for yourself what a special place it is. If you would like to set up a visit or if you have any questions, feel free to contact me or the appropriate head coach. Best of luck to you and your family throughout your college search process! Sincerely, Director of Athletics & Recreation 2

HISTORY OF ST. MARY'S COLLEGE higher education” (The Princeton Review), and among the nation’s top public liberal arts colleges (U.S. News & World Report). The Maryland legislature paid tribute to the College’s academic standing in 1992 by naming it an honors college. • In the mid-19th century, the school’s single building, Calvert Hall, provided classroom and living quarters for students and faculty alike. Today’s campus is 4,000% larger, and the student residences are a combination of traditional dormitories, suite-style residences, and townhouses.
Despite its religious-sounding name, St. Mary’s, which was founded in 1840, is a public honors college that has never been owned by any church denomination. It is, in fact, actively non-sectarian. The College is located in Maryland’s original 1634 capital, St. Mary’s City, and is named after it. The College was designed as a “living monument” to the first settlers of St. Mary’s City who had vigorously practiced religious tolerance. For roughly 100 years (1840-1930), the quaintly named St. Mary’s Female Seminary taught the liberal arts and sciences to Maryland girls and to the occasional male day-student. Never a finishing school, St. Mary’s provided the education and the sense of public mission that encouraged many of its graduates to go into teaching. The school expanded to include a junior college curriculum in 1926. After World War II, St. Mary’s became residentially coeducational and, under strong leadership, it developed into the four-year liberal arts college it is today. By the 1990s, it was receiving national attention with such accolades as “an Ivy League education at a public school price” (Washington Post), “one of the best deals on the East Coast” (The Fiske Guide to Colleges), “a real value in American
• The College’s top-ranked education is made possible by the latest advancements in science facilities and computer technology as well as by a student-faculty ratio of 13:1. • Ninety-nine percent of the faculty holds a Ph.D. or terminal degree in their field, and in the past two decades, they have earned about one Fulbright per year. • The student population stands at 2,000 and is scheduled to increase only moderately through the first decade of the 21st century. St. Mary’s, founded to honor colonial St. Mary’s City, has been affiliated since 1997 with the historical and archaeological national park, Historic St. Mary’s City. The two entities work closely together to preserve and promote the values of the 17th century’s earliest American democracy. The three men who first envisioned the St. Mary’s “living monument” of 1840 – the planter, the doctor, the lawyer – would feel at home in today’s College. For more than a century and a half, the College has held to the three principles laid down in the original charter: that the school be public and independently governed; that it be aggressively nonsectarian; and that it provide to all who wish to work for it an excellent classical education in the liberal arts and sciences.

ST. MARY'S ATHLETIC FACILITIES MICHAEL P. O'BRIEN ATHLETICS & RECREATION CENTER The Michael P. O'Brien Athletics & Recreation Center (MPOBARC) resulted from the renovation and expansion of Somerset Hall. The MPOBARC opened in the spring of 2005 and houses an arena for basketball and volleyball, an Olympic-size 50-meter swimming pool, and a fitness center that nearly doubled the size of the original facility. The entire complex is 110,000-square feet. The recreational courts and 25-yard pool from old Somerset Hall remain in use for recreation, club sports, classes and an intramural program that offers everything from soccer (indoor and out) to flag football to volleyball. • MPOBARC Arena — The MPOBARC Arena is home to the conference champion men's and women's basketball teams as well as the highly successful volleyball squad. The Arena includes seating for 1,200 fans and a hardwood maple court named after St. Mary's Hall of Famer, Ed Cole. The stands are retractable at one end, leaving room for a stage for concerts and other special events. • MPOBARC Aquatics Center — The 300-seat natatorium features an Olympicsize swimming pool with the state-of-the-art design demanded for major competitions. The planning was entrusted to Counsilman/ Hunsaker, the internationally recognized consulting firm that has overseen pool construction for two Olympic Games. • Fitness Center — The fitness center comprises three areas and is outfitted with a variety of state-ofthe-art fitness equipment, including cardiovascular machines, a comprehensive circuit of resistance-training machines, Olympic-style benches, and 6,000 pounds of free weights. The Fitness Center student staff is available to
assist both athletes and recreational exercisers with use of the equipment. Excellent stretching/floor exercise space is available as well. Equipment is provided by Life Fitness, Hammer Strength, LeMond, Hampton Fitness, Concept II, and Schwinn. • Training Room — The training room is open to all varsity student-athletes. One of the certified trainers will evaluate injuries incurred during practices and games. Treatment through therapeutic modalities is administered in the training room by the certified trainers. • Locker Rooms — With 14 locker rooms, each team is able to have a room to itself in season. Nine rooms are set aside for athletic teams and two (one men’s, one women’s) are designated for general use. In addition, the complex includes two rooms for faculty/staff and a visitor’s team room.
SEAHAWK STADIUM Seahawk Stadium is one of the best Bermudagrass fields in the nation. The Stadium, home to the St. Mary’s field hockey, men's and women's soccer, and men's and women's lacrosse teams, manages to stand up to a lot of punishment and keep its good looks. That’s because the field is a special hybrid Bermuda grass developed in the mid-’80s and planted at St. Mary’s as something of a science experiment. The hybrid is known as Tuf-coat, a hardy grass resistant to frost and cold. The stadium as a whole is ringed at one end by student townhouses, and often its occupants bring out their couches and lawn chairs to take in the action. The setting makes the game an unmistakable part of campus life, not something set apart from the rest. Bleachers line one side of the field, trees and open fields the other, with a wooded hill off in the distance. Whether you’re playing the game or watching it, Seahawk Stadium is one of the finest venues around.

ST. MARY'S ATHLETIC FACILITIES VARSITY PRACTICE FIELD COMPLEX St. Mary’s purchased the land across Mattapany Road and developed five full-size practice fields, completing the project in the fall of 2003. The fields primarily service the varsity athletic programs but are also used for community events like soccer and lacrosse tournaments along with other campus recreational and intramural activities.
HAWK’S NEST The tree-lined baseball field, known as the Hawk's Nest, opened on February 11, 2001 after two years and $1.3 million. The project was guided by Paul Zawska, former head groundskeeper at Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles. St. Mary’s baseball field is a thing of man-made beauty surrounded by natural splendor. The outfield is the same hybrid bluegrass used at Camden Yards, the infield the same mix of clay material and additives designed to keep it soft but resilient. Hawk’s Nest is a fitting name considering it’s surrounded by woods on three sides and sits just up a slope from Fisher’s Creek with the rustic-looking wooden dugouts seemingly blending into the surroundings. The near-major league dimensions are 320 feet down the leftfield line, 400 to dead center, and 330 to right. The scoreboard is one of the largest in Division III. Even the backstop has a major-league look. It’s made of salt-water netting — thinner and easier to see through than chain-link or nylon fencing — and from the same supplier as Camden Yards. Twenty thousand cubic feet of soil were displaced to create the Hawk’s Nest, about 1,800 truckloads, much of it deposited at a nearby farm.
SOMERSET TENNIS COMPLEX The $400,000-project known as Somerset Tennis Complex opened on March 9, 2001. The complex includes six courts painted with a water-resistant acrylic base coat and two finish coats. The courts are arranged in three groups of two, with walkways in
between and separate fencing for each group. The drop-down fencing — high at each end, belt-level on the sides — allows for easy spectator viewing and does away with that caged look. For the record, St. Mary’s Brad Nowicki served the first ball in competition at the new complex as the Seahawks edged RandolphMacon College 4-3 on March 9. In the first match to begin and the first to end, Nowicki teamed with Andy Beliveau to win their No. 1 doubles match 8-4 over Eric Ancarrow and Coleman Adams.
The JAMES P. MULDOON River Center and Waterfront The James P. Muldoon River Center is the home base for the national championship sailing team and the club crew team. The $5-million boathouse was revamped and completed in the September of 2009. The River Center is located in the center of campus on the banks of the St. Mary’s River. In combination with the Rowing Center, the complex measures 13,700-square feet and is for all of St. Mary's to enjoy. The multipurpose room upstairs is a great place to relax or study. Just off the multi-purpose room is the beautiful upper deck known as "The Captains Walk." Below is the lower deck and the monitor station. There is a classroom facility for sailing classes and other teaching functions as well as a conference room complete with a nautical library upstairs. Any St. Mary's student, faculty or staff can learn to sail free of charge and gain access to one of the College boats. Through private donations, the waterfront includes docks, ramps and boardwalks for improved access to the river. Protection of the shoreline and other environmental concerns figured prominently in the planning.

Four former student-athletes will be inducted into the St. Mary’s St. MArY'S AtHlEtIC HAll oF FAME College of Maryland Hall of Fame on Friday, October 1, as part of the annual Hawktober Festival — St. Mary’s Homecoming nAME YEAr InDuCtED weekend. The induction ceremony will be held on Friday eve- Belle Mattingly 1990 ning at Daugherty-Palmer Commons. Bruce Merritt 1990 The Hall of Fame inductees are Carol (Schmoeller) Hatton (Baltimore, Md./Catonsville HS), Alun Oliver (Ponty Pool, Wales/Oldham A.C.), and Mia Oliver (Jenkintown, Pa./ Jenkintown HS) while Michael Loughran will be enshrined as an Athletic Legend.
“I am excited about the induction of these four former high-caliber student-athletes into our Athletic Hall of Fame,” stated Scott Devine, Director of Athletics and Recreation at St. Mary’s. “Being inducted into the Hall of Fame is the highest honor an athlete or coach can receive from their institution and these fine individuals are extremely deserving of the honor that has been bestowed upon them. I’m looking forward to the induction ceremony as part of our Hawktober Festival.”
Michael Loughran ’75 was a scholar-athlete at St. Mary’s as a letter winner on the men’s lacrosse team. After graduating, Loughran returned to his alma mater first as an assistant coach before taking over the reins of the program in 1981. He helped spread his passion for lacrosse to the surrounding area around St. Mary’s as the founding director of St. Mary’s County Youth Lacrosse Club while leading Leonardtown High School to four consecutive Southern Maryland Athletic Conference championships (2005 to 2008). Loughran also guided Great Mills High School to the SMAC title in 2000. For his efforts at Leonardtown, he was named the SMAC Coach of the Year two years in a row.

Carol (Schmoeller) Hatton ’04 was a talented two-sport athlete for the Seahawks during her career, excelling in both volleyball and lacrosse. In volleyball, Hatton was a four-year letter winner and served as a co-captain during her senior year. At the time of her graduation, the outside hitter ranked fifth in school history in digs and ninth in kills. She shined ALUN OLIVER on the lacrosse field as a Seahawk midfielder, garnering Capital Athletic Conference Player of the Year honors in 2004 and leading St. Mary’s to four consecutive NCAA appearances. Hatton was a two-time first team All-American (2003 and 2004), a three-time first team All-CAC selection, and a two-year team captain. She returned to her alma mater as the head women’s lacrosse coach in 2006, posting a two-year mark of 23-14 and leading the Seahawks back to the NCAA tournament in 2008 after a four-year absence. Alun Oliver ’04 left St. Mary’s as the all-time leader in assists in Seahawk men’s soccer history as Oliver dished out 41 assists during his four-year career. The Welsh native also finished second in scoring with 123 points and third in goals with 41. Oliver put his mark on the Capital Athletic Conference record books as well, ranking third in assists, fourth in points and eighth in goals. He earned 2000 CAC Rookie of the Year as well as 2002 CAC Player of the Year honors. Oliver was a three-time NSCAA/adidas® All-South Region pick, including first team selections in 2002 and 2003 along with being a four-time all-conference awardee. Mia Oliver ’04 was also a dual-sport athlete at St. Mary’s, starring for both the field hockey and lacrosse squads. The Jenkintown, Pa. native was a two-time IWLCA AllAmerican and three-time all-region selection in lacrosse, helping the Seahawks to four consecutive NCAA tournament appearances and the 2002 Capital Athletic Conference championship title. Oliver became just the second Seahawk to earn all-region honors in the history of the field hockey program and led St. Mary’s to its first-ever back-to-back 10-win seasons in 2003 and 2004. A four-time All-CAC honoree, she is tied for the alltime lead in defensive saves with 15.

BASEBAll 2010 rEVIEW Mother Nature was not very kind to Seahawk baseball at the start of the season as the first 17 contests of the year were either canceled or rescheduled and the team was forced to practice inside limited quarters for almost three weeks. Despite these early setbacks, St. Mary's was competitive in its games, losing six by just a run or two. Matt Baden was the only starter to hit over .300 as Baden finished his junior campaign with a .350 average with team-highs of 36 hits, 21 runs and six doubles. He also paced the Seahawks on the bases with a .421 on-base percentage and 12 stolen bases.

LEW JENKINS Head Coach 17th Season Career Record: 271-286-3 (75-109 CAC) Lew Jenkins is closing in on two decades as the skipper of the St. Mary's baseball program as Jenkins begins his 17th season in 2011. Jenkins first served the St. Mary's baseball program as an assistant in 1994 before being named the head coach starting with the 1995 season. The all-time winningest coach in the 41-year history of the program, Jenkins' 271 career wins include three consecutive 20-win seasons, marking the first three ever such seasons in program history. The Seahawks claimed the CAC regular-season title and finished as CAC runners-up in 1999 with a 26-7 record, earning Jenkins CAC Co-Coach of the Year honors. That year's mark set team records for most wins (26) and best winning percentage (.788). During his tenure, Jenkins has coached two league rookies of the year (Steve Oursler, Chris Segal) as well as the 1999 player of the year (Oursler). He has also mentored 21 Seahawks to 31 all-conference selections (11 first team and 20 second team). Jenkins is best known in the state of Maryland for his 25 years as the head coach of Surrattsville HS baseball in Clinton, where he won 326 games, No. 1 on the state's all-time list at the time of his retirement. In addition to coaching baseball, he served as an athletic director and a physi-
cal education teacher as well as a coach for wrestling, soccer and football. Jenkins left Surrattsville after the 1993 season with a lifetime winning percentage of .718. After the state playoff system took effect in 1975, his teams qualified for postseason play in 18 straight years. Jenkins won 11 Prince George's County titles at a time when that area was considered a hotbed of baseball talent. During his 40+ year coaching career, he has notched almost 600 wins between his high school and college coaching days. After his retirement from high school coaching, Jenkins spent three seasons as an assistant at two of the premier Division I programs in the region, Georgetown and George Washington Universities. Several players from those teams went on to play professional baseball. Jenkins has 25 years of scouting experience, having scouted for the Texas Rangers, the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Major League Scouting Bureau. He coached youth baseball teams at the national and international level, including mentoring the US Junior National Team for four years. In 1994, he was inducted into the Maryland State Association of Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame in acknowledgement of his stellar career at Surrattsville. In 1991, he was awarded the US Baseball Foundation's National Service Award. Jenkins was also enshrined in the Maryland State Wrestling Hall of Fame in 1994. A 1959 graduate of the University of Maryland, he earned his master's in physical education from George Washington University. Jenkins lives in Waldorf with his wife, Marian. The couple has three grown sons and five grandchildren.

The Seahawks also claimed their second straight Pride of Maryland title for bragging rights among Maryland's Division III programs while finishing the year ranked 14th with a 26-4 overall record. Camontae Griffin and Alex Franz highlighted the Seahawks' success with all-region selections by the NABC and D3hoops.com as well as first team All-CAC honors. Griffin, the lone senior, paced the Seahawks' high power offense with a conferene-best 21.6 points per game, ranking 18th in Division III. As one of the program's most prolific scorers, he eclipsed the 1,000 point mark in just two seasons as a Hawk and finished his career with 1,156 points.

CHRIS HARNEY Head Coach Sixth Season Career Record: 91-48 (50-28 CAC) In his sixth season at the helm of the Seahawk men's basketball program, Chris Harney enters the 2010-11 campaign as the program's second winningest coach with 91 career victories. Harney has brought St. Mary's into the national spotlight during his short tenure and is coming off the most auspicious seasons in school history. He was rewarded for his tireless efforts with selections as the National Association of Basketball Coaches Middle Atlantic Region Coach of the Year and Capital Athletic Conference Coach of the Year in 2010. Harney's success is unprecedented in St. Mary's 44-year history - two NCAA Sweet 16 appearances, two league championship crowns, two CAC regular-season titles as well as four consecutive winning seasons, including the first-ever back-to-back 20+ win campaigns in 2008-09 and 2009-10. St. Mary's averaged only 11.75 wins per season before Harney's arrival but under his guidance, the program now averages 18.2 victories a season.

Desptie being low on numbers, the Seahawks forged an 8-8 conference record to finish fourth in the Capital Athletic Conference regular-season standings and swept Hood College, Stevenson University and 2009 NCAA Sweet 16 team, York (Pa.) College. Stephanie Saint-Aubin capped her career with her third second team All-CAC selection after leading the conference for the third time in her three-year career in steals with 3.5 per game. SaintAubin also paced St. Mary's in scoring with 17.6 points per game, which was good for second in the CAC, while boasting a team-best 8.5 rebounding average. Alex Wenger also finished out her fouryear career on a high note, averaging a second-best 7.0 rebounds and adding 5.4 points per game.
Numbers. The Seahawk women's basketball coaching staff expects to field a squad of 10 or more for the first time since the 2006-07 season as fourth-year head coach Barb Bausch welcomes 11 incoming recruits along with five returners, including three starters. The newcomers hail from talented programs throughout Maryland as well as North Carolina, giving St. Mary's much needed depth at all positions. Five of the 11 first-years averaged double digits in scoring while two averaged double-doubles. Youthful enthusiasm mixed in with strong leadership will bring a new level of competitiveness to the forefront for the Seahawks. As the lone senior, Jamie Roberts (9.6 ppg, 4.1 rpg) brings to the table four years of varsity experience as well as a mentally tough and competitive presence to the court which Coach Bausch will count on to lead the young 2010-11 edition of the Seahawks. All four sophomores come in well-seasoned after notching significant playing experience in their first year as Seahawks. Pui Sham (10.6 ppg) led the team with a .364 three-point field goal percentage while Jasmine Jones (3.4 ppg) averaged a team-best 2.8 assists. Taylor Petrisko (4.9 ppg, 4.2 rpg) will be looked to to take over the rebounding duties with the graduation of Saint-Aubin and Wenger while Lucy Kuhna (1.5 ppg) will provide additional support off the bench.

The third-leading scorer, Patrick Mull (7g, 25a) had a solid rookie season while Cole Columbus (2g) and Will Bell (2g, 1a) look to break into the top two middie lines. Looking to make contributions in the middle will be J.T. Rohe and Jake Wilhelm as well as first-years Gordy Long (St. Paul's School for Boys), Ben Love (McDonogh School), Cody Tidwell (South River HS), and Alex Hildebrandt (Cold Spring Harbor HS [NY]). Tim Fortner (2g) and Colin Gload will be the first line of defense as short-stick defensive midfielders with the duo bringing a fierce determination to the field. Peter Windsor returns as the team's top long-stick middie with a no holds barred style of defense, finishing second with 47 ground balls and 23 caused turnovers in 2009. Adding depth to the short- and long-stick midfield positions will be Chris Lacy, Colin McNamara, Mike Ott and Dalton Yohn. Sean Hatley will anchor a solid defensive unit, receiving support from Eric Heisner and Justin Harty, who has become a shut down defenseman for the Hawks. Rob Becker and rookies David Mitchell-McShane (St. Paul's School for Boys), J.J. Nathan (Cardinal Newman HS), Brett Williams (McDonogh School), and Miles Loring-Thomas (Buckingham Browne & Nichols School [Mass.]) will push for quality playing time. University of Delaware transfer, Stu Wheeler, will be counted on to improve upon last season's success after winning the starting role and posting a 9.21 GAA. However, S. Wheeler will face stiff competition from Pat Simpson, who hopes to regain the starting job, while Nick Beardsley and Ben Wheeler will vie for the No. 3 spot.
CHRIS HASBROUCK Head Coach Third Season Career Record at SMCM: 18-13 (10-4 CAC) Chris Hasbrouck embarks on his third season at the helm of the Seahawk men's lacrosse program in 2010. Hasbrouck has quickly helped St. Mary's return to the national stage, leading the program to the Capital Athletic Conference semifinals in his first two seasons. The Suffern, N.Y. native brought a wealth of experience to St. Mary's, having been a part of two storied men's lacrosse programs at Salisbury University and Division II powerhouse, Limestone College, for 13 years. Last season, the Seahawks achieved their first 10-win season since 2007 while Hasbrouck mentored the program's 11th All-America honoree and four All-CAC picks. He was voted as the 2009 CAC Coach of the Year after leading St. Mary's to the CAC semifinals as the No. 2 seed as well as the program's first win over Salisbury in 32 years. That same year, Hasbrouck coached two All-Americans and six all-conference selections.
In his two seasons as a Seahawk assistant, he helped the program to a two-year mark of 19-14 and worked with a pair of conference rookies of the year as the offensive coordinator. St. Mary's averaged 10.53 goals per game in 2008, ranking 44th in Division III, while the team advanced to the 2007 CAC title game with a 12-6 record. Hasbrouck served as the Limestone head coach for two seasons before joining the St. Mary's athletic staff in September of 2006. He led the Saints to a two-year mark of 26-7, winning the Deep South Conference title both years. Limestone finished as national runner-up in 2005 with a 15-2 mark. That same year, the Saints set NCAA Division II scoring records for goals (338) and points (520). Hasbrouck had five players earn All-America honors while garnering 2005 USILA Division II National Coach of the Year honors. Prior to coaching at Limestone, he was the top assistant at Salisbury for 11 seasons. Hasbrouck served as the offensive coordinator and during his tenure, the Sea Gulls played in six national championships and claimed five of them. Hasbrouck graduated summa cum laude with a B.S. in physical education in 1995 from Salisbury. Continuing his studies at Salisbury, he completed his master's in education in 1997.

WoMEn'S lACroSSE 2010 rEVIEW To gear up for the 2010 season, St. Mary's played a friendly with a Japanese club team during its nontraditional season in the fall. A fun time was had by all while both sides enlightened each other about their respective cultures, exchanging trinkets after the game. The Seahawks experienced a rough start to the campaign, losing the first six games of the season with four losses coming to nationally ranked opponents. St. Mary's finally got back on track and finished out the season with 9-3 run that included a 13-8 win over No. 17 Stevenson University to secure the third seed in the Capital Athletic Conference tournament. To the Seahawks' credit, all nine losses came at the hands of either nationally or regionally ranked opponents. Lauriann Parker claimed CAC Rookie of the Year as well as first team IWLCA All-Chesapeake Region and All-CAC honors following a stunning first-year campaign. Parker finished as the team's leading scorer with team-highs of 49 goals and 82 points along with a second-best 33 assists. She also contributed 38 draw controls, 30 ground balls, and 16 caused turnovers. Parker set school single-game records for most goals and points in a game following a 9-goal, 12-point performance at Christopher Newport University on May 1. She ranked in NCAA Division III in assists (34th), points (42nd), and assists per game (47th) while leading the league with five game-winning goals. Six Seahawks earned all-conference honors while second-leading scorer Nora Fallon-Oben (48g, 18a) and the team's leader in ground balls and draw controls, Aubrey Mirkin (31g, 8a), joined Parker on the all-region squad. Off the field, St. Mary's completed 11 community service projects, including running supply drives for the fledgling lacrosse program in Colombia and the Second Hope Animal Rescue in Leonardtown. The Seahawks also held its second annual Breast Cancer Awareness Game on March 28, raising nearly $2,000 for the Climb for Hope organization.
2011 outlooK Returning six of last year's top 10 scorers, third-year head coach Kara Reber looks to have St. Mary's back in the hunt for the program's fourth CAC championship trophy. Coach Reber hopes to receive immediate contributions from the 12 new recruits joining the team this spring. The Seahawks' strength will come in the midfield with four key starters coming back for another go-around. Parker and Mirkin, together with Lauren Gray and Erin Shackelford, combined for 109 goals from the central position, nearly 45% of last season's offensive output. All-league performers, Jaime Roberts and Arianna Larrimore, will command the defense while Elisa Bateman will provide solid support. Roberts posted a 14.03 GAA in her first season as the starting goalkeeper, adding 31 ground balls, 10 caused turnovers and an assist, while Larrimore and Bateman joined forces for 47 ground balls and 23 caused turnovers in the backfield.
KARA REBER Head Coach Third Season Career Record at SMCM: 21-14 (11-3 CAC) In her two seasons at the helm of the Seahawk women's lacrosse program, Kara Reber has mentored an All-American, seven all-region players and 11 All-Capital Athletic Conference selections. Reber looks to lead the Seahawks to their fourth league title in 2011. The Seahawks advanced to the CAC semifinals for the second consecutive season in 2010, finishing with a 9-9 overall record (5-2 CAC). Along with leading St. Mary's to a 10+ win season, Reber guided the Seahawks to a 6-1 record in conference play and the No. 2 seed in the 2009 CAC tournament. Active within her coaching organization, she sits on the following Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association committees: Ethics Committee, Nominating Committee and All-America Committee. The Pittsford, N.Y. native came to St. Mary's after five successful years at Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pa., where she guided the Warriors to a 47-34 record. In June 2008, she coached the South team to a 10-6 victory in the North/South All-Star game. Under Reber's tutelage, Lycoming earned the 2008 IWLCA Community Service Award and was named an IWLCA Academic Squad. She tallied a mark of 28-8 between 2006 and 2007 as Reber guided Lycoming to back-to-back 14-4 campaigns. In 2006, the Warriors advanced to the Middle Atlantic Conference Championship game as Lycoming made appearances in the MAC semifinals during her last two seasons.
Reber earned 2006 MAC Coach of the Year honors after leading the Warriors to a school record 14 wins and an appearance in the MAC title contest along with mentoring the conference rookie of the year. While at Lycoming, she also had a player earn a pair of All-America citations and coached 10 all-region selections as well as 12 All-MAC picks. Reber arrived at Lycoming after coaching soccer, basketball, and lacrosse at Newark HS in New York. A 1999 graduate of Bowling Green State University, she played both soccer and ice hockey while earning a bachelor's degree in sports management.

2010-11 outlooK The Seahawk coaching staff will utilize a new crop of sailors from the four corners of the country to shape a team that will compete to defend the program's fifth team race national title.
BACKGrounD oF SAIlInG At St. MArY'S CollEGE oF MArYlAnD With 15 national titles, St. Mary’s has a proud history of collegiate sailing. Founded in 1965 as a recreational and course-credit program, SMCM sailing had humble beginnings in a small fleet of 420s. The varsity sailing program was later created in 1970 and began competing against other Mid-Atlantic schools. Since that time, St. Mary’s has evolved into one of the premier varsity sailing programs in the country. The varsity fleet consists of 18 Flying Juniors and 18 420s, two Larks, and two Lasers which help the team prepare for events around the country. St. Mary’s sails in Horseshoe Bend on the St. Mary’s River, a perfect site for both practice and home events. Along with sailing on the relatively flat water of the St. Mary’s River, the dinghy team also trains at their open-water site at nearby Point Lookout State Park. Point Lookout gives the team access to the wind and waves of the Chesapeake Bay, allowing SMCM to prepare for similar competition sites.
ADAM WERBLOW Head Coach 23rd Season Adam Werblow has had quite a phenomenal sailing career as both a competitor and coach. Werblow graduated from Connecticut College in 1988 where he captained the sailing team. Competing in the Flying Dutchman class, he was a member of the US Sailing Team (1989-92) during its quest for the 1992 Olympics. Werblow has been the head coach of the US Youth Worlds Team seven times and led the team to two gold and two silver medals in 1991, the best-ever record at those world championships. He has been with the St. Mary’s sailing program since 1988, propelling the team to 15 national titles. In 1999, Werblow was named the Developmental Coach of the Year by the United States Olympic Committee.
BILL WARD Head Coach Fifth Season Bill Ward's teams have won seven national championships in 12 years of collegiate coaching. Ward coached Team USA at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing and was named the 2008 National Coach of the Year by the US Sailing’s Olympic Sailing Committee. He was on the coaching staff of the US Sailing Team for the 2007 Pan Am Games in Brazil and in 2005, Ward served as the team leader/ head coach for the US ICSA Team competing in the BUSA Tour in England and Ireland.

MEn'S SoCCEr 2009 rEVIEW The 2009 season was one of near misses for the Seahawks, dropping six one-goal decisions. Two of those onegoal losses were 1-0 deficits to nationally-ranked Johns Hopkins University (No. 16) and Swarthmore College (No. 12) — both at Seahawk Stadium. St. Mary's helped the Capital Athletic Conference capture the fourteam CAC/ODAC Challenge with a pair of shutout wins over Old Dominion Athletic Conference members, Randolph-Macon College (2-0) and Bridgewater (Va.) College (4-0). The Hawks' league partner in the challenge was Salisbury University, who outscored Randolph-Macon and Bridgewater, 16-1. Midfielder Brian Payne and forward Ted Scharfenberg highlighted the campaign with a pair of second team All-CAC selections. Scharfenberg paced the Seahawks with team-highs of five goals, five assists, and 15 points and tallied a career-high six points (2g, 2a) in a 9-0 blanking of Gallaudet University. Despite missing eight games with injury, Payne was an integral part of St. Mary's central midfield and notched three goals.
2010 outlooK St. Mary's will kick off the 2010 campaign overseas as the Seahawks will spend nine days in Italy at the start of August for part of their preseason training. Interspersed with travel to Florence, Rome and Venice, ninth-year head coach Herb Gainey and his squad will take on local Italian football clubs. The coaching staff hopes that the Italy training trip will help focus the players on the daunting schedule that awaits them stateside. The 2010 schedule features 10 road contests as well as five programs which advanced PAUL SPRANKLIN to the second round or beyond of last season's NCAA tournament. Coach Gainey looks forward to the addition of Mark Jaskolski (Northwest HS), a transfer out of Division I Loyola (Md.) College, to the frontline. A creative attacking player, Jaskolski will look to complement the scoring output of Scharfenberg and Chris Quamina (5g, 3a). Other first-year players that will be counted on to be immediate contributors are Pierre Zibi (DeMatha Catholic HS), Alex Baldwin (Montgomery Blair HS) and Desire Baranshamaje (Bethesda-Chevy Chase HS) as the Seahawks will need to get back to their style of quick counterattacks to be successful this fall. Kevin Seeger and Taylor Lewis will anchor the defensive line in front of goalkeeper Paul Spranklin (2.32 GAA) as St. Mary's looks to improve upon its team defense. Payne, Matt Grady (2g, 3a) and Aaron Lewis will be expected to control the midfield, helping the Seahawks unleash their counterattacks.

Assistant Coach Ninth Season
In eight seasons at the helm of the Seahawk men's soccer program, Herb Gainey has become the winningest coach in school history with 71 victories. Every season, Gainey's troops arguably play one of the toughest schedules in the nation, advancing to the Capital Athletic Conference semifinals four times. Gainey guided the Seahawks to their first-ever national ranking in 2004 and was named the 2002 CAC Coach of the Year after mentoring St. Mary's to its best-ever season with a 15-5 mark. The veteran leader has coached 17 Seahawks to 21 first or second team All-CAC selections, along with the 2002 CAC Player of the Year and the 2007 CAC Rookie of the year. Gainey, who retired from youth soccer in 2009, has over 30 years of experience developing soccer players at various levels, including youth, high school, and select club. He was recognized as both the 2006 US Youth Soccer Association Girls Coach of the Year and the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association Donald Minnegan Girls Coach of the Year after claiming back-to-back national championships in 2005 (U-18 Girls) and 2006 (U-16 Girls). The titles were the first national titles won by any Maryland ODP team. He also won two bronze medals with the '92 girls team while having coached former women's U.S. National Team players. The Mechanicsville, Md. native also serves as an assistant director of athletics and recreation at the College.
In his ninth season with the Seahawks, Rich Edgar brings a great deal of coaching experience to the program. His primary focuses are the Seahawk forwards and midfielders, having mentored both all-conference and all-region players. A native of Springfield, Pa., Edgar is the director of admissions at the College and also serves as codirector of the Seahawk Soccer Camps. A 1980 Lycoming College graduate, Edgar earned a B.A. in criminal justice and played four years of soccer for the Warriors.

BRIANNE WEAVER Head Coach Fifth Season Career Record: 36-30-7 (19-9-3 CAC) Brianne Weaver looks forward to her fifth season at the helm of the St. Mary's women's soccer program with great anticipation as she hopes that the Seahawks are ready to use the lessons learned a year ago in order to move forward and improve upon last season's under .500 mark. Weaver has been involved with Division I and Division III athletics both as a coach and a player, a unique experience that helped form the basic tenet of her coaching philosophy: "College soccer should be both highly competitive and fun." She kicked off her head coaching career in impressive fashion as Weaver led the Seahawks to a 12-6-2 record in 2006, including the program's first-ever trip to the Capital Athletic Conference championship game. In her third season with the Seahawks, Weaver guided SMCM to a 12-3-3 overall record, including a 6-1-1 mark in CAC action. The Seahawks went unbeaten in the seasonâ€™s first 10 games (7-0-3) and were rewarded with the programâ€™s first-ever national ranking of No. 25 on October 7. Weaver has led the Seahawks to the CAC title match twice, finally notching the crown in 2008 and with the conference title in hand, St. Mary's made its first-ever trip to the NCAA women's soccer tournament. She has been recognized at the regional and conference level with coach of the year honors, earning CAC and NSCAA Mid-Atlantic Region coach of the year accolades in 2008. To date, Weaver has coached two NSCAA all-region players, two CAC Players of the Year, one CAC Rookie

of the Year, and 19 all-conference selections. Her squads have also been positive stewards of the game on and off the field, receiving two NSCAA Gold Team Ethics Awards for receiving zero cards (2007, 2008) and earning three NSCAA Team Academic Awards. She graduated from St. Mary's in 2000 with a B.A. in English. At St. Mary's, Weaver played both soccer and lacrosse for the Seahawks after transferring in from Division I Davidson College, where she played soccer for two years. Prior to becoming the Seahawks' head coach, Weaver served as an assistant coach at several other top colleges and universities in the region, including Division I Richmond and Division III powerhouses: Washington & Lee, York (Pa.), and Mary Washington. She is an avid student of the game and holds numerous coaching licenses and certificates from the NSCAA and the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association, including the NSCAA Premier Diploma. Weaver has also served as a member of the Maryland Olympic Development Program (ODP) coaching staff. The former Brianne Smithson is married to Drew Weaver '98.

The St. Mary's men notched a 12-10 record to tie the season record for wins set by the 1997-98 squad, marking consecutive 10-win campaigns. The Seahawks captured the Virginia Wesleyan College Beach Shootout with victories over Chowan College, the host school, and Southern Virginia College. The men also posted 5-4 triumphs over Division I University of Maryland-Eastern Shore and Division II University of District of Columbia. The Seahawk women finished as Capital Athletic Conference semifinalists for the third straight season and with their second straight 10-win season. Michelle Compton and Chelsea Bradcovich garnered second team All-CAC honors after posting eight wins at No. 1 doubles, including key conference wins over York (Pa.) College and Stevenson University.
Fifth-year head coach Derek Sabedra is cautiously optimistic for the men's upcoming season as the 2010-11 season will be a rebuilding year with the loss of four starters. The coaching staff will need to find a niche for the new players to interplay with the veteran core. The Seahawks will miss the contributions of All-CAC performer Kenny Nugent on the court but will gain his experience as Nugent joins the coaching staff. Team captain Thomas Hoesman and 11-match winner Kyle Feeley will help lead the talented newcomers who are all Maryland state tournament qualifiers: Andrew Gear (Winters Mill HS), Devin Turk (Hereford HS) and Jay Guzzone (Hammond HS). Coach Sabedra will look to team captain Katie Lackler and the ever-consistent Kathleen Ramsey to inspire an experienced group to a successful 2010-11 campaign. The Seahawks return nine letter winners on the women's side, including six key starters. Bradcovich, Ramsey and Beth Handy's work ethic will carry them and the team to another successful season as Bradcovich and Ramsey both achieved 15-win seasons while Handy notched 11 wins in singles action.

2009 rEVIEW Following a 1-4 start to the season, St. Mary's won six straight to turn the campaign around and finish with its fifth consecutive winning season at 18-14 overall. The Seahawks bowed out of the Capital Athletic Conference tournament in the first round with a 3-1 setback to York (Pa.) College, marking the first time since 2005 that SMCM has not advanced further in the playoffs. Claire Kodan earned all-conference honors for the third consecutive season with her second career first team nod after leading the team with a conference third-best 437 kills. Kodan contributed defensively as well with 390 digs and 48 total blocks. Katie Obal had a strong season for St. Mary's, making a smooth transition from outside hitter to setter. Obal earned CAC player of the week honors and finished third in the league with a 9.45 assist average.
2010 outlooK Seventh-year head coach Morris Davis expects to have his troops back in the hunt for the CAC championship title this fall as Coach Davis returns a strong veteran core led by the team's two seniors, Kodan and Obal. Coach Davis looks forward to forming a formidable squad in 2010 with the addition of seven incoming standouts to the program. Kodan (3.50 kills/set) and Gena Hlavinka (2.14 kills/set) will help the Seahawks at the net offensively as well as defensively as the duo combined for 127 total blocks a year ago. Cecilia Blanc will be returning as a defensive specialist in the backcourt following a solid first-year season with a team-best 3.46 digs/set. Obal (0.31 aces/set) will set the plays in motion as well as keep opponents on their toes with a surefire jump serve. Coach Davis has yet again put together a top-notch schedule featuring three 2009 NCAA tournament participants, including conference newcomer, Frostburg State University. Right off the bat, the Seahawks open up with defending Old Dominion Athletic Conference champion, Randolph-Macon College, before facing three-time defending CAC champion, Salisbury University, 10 days later. Conference action will continue to test St. Mary's as the CAC swaps out one league champion (Gallaudet University) for another in Frostburg State, who won the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference three times.
MORRIS DAVIS Head Coach Seventh Season Career Record: 120-76 (23-22 CAC) Under Morris Davis' guidance, St. Mary's has recorded five consecutive winning seasons, including three 20+ win campaigns. Davis brings 120 career victories into 2010 as he enters his seventh season as the head coach of the Seahawk volleyball program. Looking at his track record, there is no doubt that a winning tradition has been infused into Seahawk volleyball. He has coached two All-Americans, four all-region selections and 11 All-Capital Athletic Conference picks. The school's first-ever AVCA Mid-Atlantic Region Freshman of the Year (Claire Kodan in 2007) and two CAC rookies of the year have also passed through the program during Davis' watch. Davis coached the program's second All-American (Katie Ewing '10) while the Seahawks made a return trip to the CAC championship match in 2008. That same year, he notched his 100th coaching victory with a 3-0 triumph over Rutgers University-Newark on November 1. In 2007, Davis mentored the program's first-ever All-American (Claire Kodan) while guiding St. Mary's to its first-ever appearance in the CAC title match. And for his leadership, Davis was recognized by his conference peers as the CAC Coach of the Year. He led the Seahawks to a record of 19-10 in 2006 and for the second year in a row, Davis coached the CAC Rookie of the Year (Ewing). Davis concluded his second season at the helm by leading the Seahawks to their first 20-win season since 1999 with a 20-19 record and

their first winning season since 2002, while Becca Tursell '09 was voted as the 2005 CAC Rookie of the Year. Tursell became the first-ever Seahawk selected as rookie of the year.

During the 1999 and 2000 seasons, Davis served as the head varsity coach at McDonough HS in Pomfret, Md., where he led the school to a two-year record of 39-3 and a No. 2 ranking. The team finished as regional runners-up twice during his tenure. Born on the island of St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, Davis is a 20-year veteran of the US Navy.
