In its inaugural season of competition the Stetson lacrosse team enjoyed a number of successes on and off the field in 2013. The Hatters won their first game ever in a 19-7 home victory over Kennesaw State on Apr. 14, they went 2-2 in Atlantic Sun Conference play, and the program reached the conference semifinals in its first year of existence. With 16 letter-winners returning, 11 of 12 starters back from a year ago, and a crop of 11 newcomers, the 2014 version of the Stetson lacrosse team is prepared to take big strides in the development of the program. “The experience of that first year for the coaching staff helped us work out many kinks with logistics, the processes in place here at Stetson, and to get a feel for what works and what doesn’t work for our program,” second-year head coach Nicole Moore said. “This year we have more insight to help us prepare our student-athletes for success. “Every year holds its unique set of challenges, and that is what can make each individual year special and memorable with the right mindset,” Moore went on to say. “We are building the mindset of our team to see challenges as opportunities for growth and achievement of excellence.” The 2013 season provided many challenges for the first-year program that started the year with 13 straight losses, but the Hatters excelled during A-Sun play, winning their final two “We are building the mindset games to earn the third seed in the conference tournament. of our team to see challenges as opportunities for growth A number of Stetson’s student-athletes earned individual accolades for their efforts as well.

NICOLE MOORE

HEAD COACH

NICOLE MOORE

Stetson University Director of Athletics Jeff Altier announced the appoinitment of Nicole Moore as the head coach of the Hatters’ new women’s lacrosse program in December of 2011. “I am really excited about bringing Nicole in to be our first women’s lacrosse coach,” Altier said in 2011. “She comes very highly recommended from some of the best coaches in the country and she has an abundance of experience as an assistant coach. I believe she is ready to make this step. It is time for her to be a head coach. “I am confident that Nicole is the right choice to help Stetson University get its women’s lacrosse program off and running, and lead us into the Atlantic Sun Conference,” Altier went on to say. During the program’s first season of existence, Moore led Stetson to many milestones, including the Hatters’ first goal, tallied by freshman Melanie Fredericks in the opener against Liberty, and the team’s first win, a 19-7 victory over Kennesaw State. Stetson finished year one with an overall record of 2-14, but went 2-2 in A-Sun play, securing the third seed in the

@STETSONLACROSSE

first ever A-Sun Women’s Lacrosse Tournament. The Hatters fell to second seeded Detroit in the league semifinals to end the season. Under Moore’s tutelage, five freshmen earned A-Sun All-Freshman Team honors in 2013, including two - Mary Kate O’Sullivan and Danielle Horgan - who were named Second Team All-Conference. Moore came to Stetson from the University of Vermont, where she spent two seasons as an assistant coach. Prior to her time with the Catamounts, Moore spent four seasons as an assistant coach at Temple University (2007-10). She worked primarily with the Owl defenders and helped guide Temple to the A-10 Championship and a berth in the NCAA Tournament in 2008. “I would like to thank Jeff Altier and the rest of the Stetson Athletics Administration for the opportunity to join the Stetson family and build the Stetson Lacrosse program,” Moore said in 2011. “I would also like to thank the UVM administration for their support, and the great mentorship and support from both Bonnie Rosen (Temple) and Sandy Bridgeman (New Hampshire).

NICOLE MOORE “Once I stepped onto the beautiful campus at Stetson and met the administrators and coaches of the Stetson Athletic department, I knew there was something very special here,” Moore continued. “The prestigious academics, coupled with a very successful vision of Stetson Lacrosse, were both huge draws for me to the university. There is a true feeling of pride, camaraderie and support, on campus and in the department. I knew I would fit in perfectly and would help to contribute to the success of Stetson, both in the classroom and on the field.” Prior to joining the Owl coaching staff, Moore served as an assistant coach at Canisius (2004-06). During her stint with the Lady Griffins she coached four All-Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference players, including an MAAC Offensive Player of the Year in 2006 and a Defensive Player of the Year in 2005.

In 2005, Moore helped the Lady Griffins to the program’s first winning season in history with a 9-6 record. In 2006, the squad finished second in the MAAC with a 12-7 record. While at Canisius, Moore also served as an assistant coach and player on the MAAC All-Stars team in the International Friendship Games, held in Tokyo, Japan. Upon graduating from the University of New Hampshire in 2002 with a degree in English, Moore took a job as the director of lacrosse at the Casterton School, an independent boarding school in Lancashire, England. She also worked as a coaching officer in the English Lacrosse Association. In addition to her duties at Casterton, she was in charge of running elite performance centers for the ELA. While in England, she was a member of the Heaton Mersey and North England women’s lacrosse teams. A native of Wilton, Maine, Moore was a three-year member of the New Hampshire women’s lacrosse team, where she led her squad to a 2002 America East Conference Regular Season Title. Moore, an IWLCA/US Lacrosse Regional Second Team All-American, was a member of the 2001 and 2002 America East All-Championship teams, as well as an America East All-Conference First Team selection in 2002. During her senior season, she was voted UNH’s Defensive MVP. She has also joined her college coach, Sandy Bridgeman, to coach the Dutch National Team.

“What a great hire by Stetson,” Bridgeman said. “Nicole is the perfect person to build and lead a new program. As a player and coach, Nicole has always demonstrated a genuine enthusiasm for the game and playing and coaching with integrity. She is a fantastic teacher of the game, has a tremendous work ethic and brings an unequaled enthusiasm to her teams.” Moore also played field hockey for the Wildcats, earning a spot on the America East Championship team and helping her team advance to the NCAA Tournament in 1998. Moore’s experience also includes working as a director of various lacrosse camps. For the past 10 years she has been involved with some of the top Elite summer camps, including at the University of North Carolina. A speaker at the 2009 US Lacrosse Convention, Moore sits on multiple IWLCA committees. She is currently on the IWLCA Outreach Committee that works with Project IRM, which identifies, recruits and mentors minority coaches in the sport of lacrosse. Moore earned a master of science degree with a concentration in sport psychology and sport coaching from Canisius in May of 2006.

BRITTANY DIPPER

BRITTANY DIPPER Assistant Coach Second Season Maryland, 2012

Brittany Dipper joined the Stetson University lacrosse program on August 27, 2012, as assistant coach. Dipper came to Stetson on the heels of a highly successful playing career at the University of Maryland where, over four years in goal, she led the Terrapins to four consecutive Atlantic Coast Conference titles. In addition, she made eight saves in goal in Maryland’s 2010 national championship game victory over Northwestern. “Hiring Brittany Dipper was an easy decision to make,” Hatters head coach Nicole Moore said. “From our first conversation, and her time on campus, I knew she would be an important asset to the start of this program at Stetson, and to our student-athletes. Her passion, drive, confidence and positivity will help her to become an effective and successful coach. I am excited for us to work together in building Stetson lacrosse.” Dipper’s playing career at Maryland, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Family Science, includes a pair of first team All-America seasons and a national Goalie of the Year award. She was named to the All-ACC Tournament team all four years of her career while posting a career record in goal of 75-8. A native of Clarksboro, N.J., Dipper not only excelled in lacrosse. She was also a member of Maryland’s 2008 national champion field hockey team. “I am so privileged to be a part of the Stetson family and so grateful for the opportunity Nicole and the athletic department have given me,” Dipper said. “It is an honor to be able to help establish the Stetson women’s lacrosse program and bring a hardworking, dedicated tradition to Stetson lacrosse. I cannot wait to get started working with the program.” While Stetson marks Dipper’s first foray into full-time coaching, she is no stranger to teaching the game of lacrosse. While still a player at Maryland she worked as a coach and counselor at a number of camps and clinics. She has been an annual instructor at the Maryland Elevate Lacrosse Open Camp and has worked at elite camps in Salt Lake City, Atlanta and at Duke University. “Brittany will be a fantastic addition at Stetson,” Maryland coach Cathy Reese said. “She is both a hard worker and a valiant competitor who achieved a great deal of success during her time at Maryland. We are excited to have yet another Terp embark into a career in coaching and wish her nothing but the best.” Dipper said she was attracted to Stetson by the dedication she saw, from both the athletic department and the university, to building a championship caliber program. “As soon as I walked on to the Stetson campus and met Nicole, the Athletic Administrators and other coaches, I knew this was a perfect fit,” Dipper said. “The opportunity to work with the Stetson family and the talented student-athletes is very rewarding. “I was fortunate enough to be a part of a national championship team, and I know the amount of commitment and effort needed to get there. I plan on bringing that drive to Stetson lacrosse from the very beginning. My objective is to bring what I have learned throughout my playing career to the student-athletes of Stetson lacrosse so they can thrive, not only on the field, but off the field as well.”

Mitchell VanSumeren joined the Stetson women’s lacrosse program, working with head coach Nicole Moore, in the spring of 2012. He is a student at Stetson University studying sports business. He plans to graduate in 2015 and pursue coaching as a full-time job. VanSumeren is a native of Flushing, Michigan, and graduated from Flushing High School in 2010. While attending Flushing High School, he was actively involved with the football team, student leadership organization, city youth council and the Mid-Michigan Rural Football League programs. Much of his previous coaching experiences are in football. He was a head coach in the Mid-Michigan Rural Football League for the Flushing Raiders for two seasons (2009-10). During that time he compiled a 12-0 record and was the youngest coach in league history to win a championship.

Miriam Hosmon joined the Stetson University Sports Medicine staff in the summer of 2013, taking on primary athletic training responsibilities for the lacrosse and men’s soccer teams. Hosmon came to Stetson after working as an Athletic Training Intern at Samford University. There she worked with the women’s basketball, women’s tennis, and women’s soccer teams. A native of Evansville, Ind., Hosmon has also spent time as a Graduate Assistant Athletic Trainer at Augusta State, and a Student Athletic Trainer at Concordia University. A member of the volleyball team at Concordia, she earned her Bachelor of Science degree from the University in 2010. Hosmon also holds a Master of Science in Kenesiology from Augusta State (2012).

“Mitch demonstrates intelligence, maturity and leadership qualities beyond his years when interacting not only with the young players he works with, but also the parents as well as league officials,” Tim Wilson, president of the Mid-Michigan League, said. “He has always been a capable and responsible person who has the ability to think quickly on his feet with reasonable and sensible actions when dealing with the wide range of personalities of this program.” After arriving in DeLand in 2011, VanSumeren accepted a job with St. Barnabas Episcopal School as an assistant football coach. The Crusaders went 8-0 and went on to win the Athens Athletic Conference title. In addition to his duties with the Stetson lacrosse program, VanSumeren also works in the Stetson equipment room and has worked with the Hatters football program.

ATHLETIC TRAINING CENTER During the spring of 2011, Stetson President Dr. Wendy Libby announced that the University was bringing football back for the first time since 1956. More than a year later, a groundbreaking ceremony for Stetson’s $6.7 million field house and field renovation was held. The 25,000 square foot building on the corner of Minnesota and Amelia avenues houses locker rooms for lacrosse, men’s and women’s soccer, as well as football. Additionally, state-of-the-art sports medicine and strength and conditioning areas are also available to student-athletes at the Stetson University Athletics Training Center. The facility also includes office and meeting room space for each of the four programs, as well as an equipment room. The VIP room on the second floor of the facility will be utilized during lacrosse games. On one side of the field house are practice fields for the football team, on the other side are game and practice fields for Stetson lacrosse, men’s soccer, and women’s soccer teams. Before the spring 2013 lacrosse season was set to begin, a brand new scoreboard was put in place on the south end of the Hatters’ game field, for fans to easily read the time and score of each home contest.

ATHLETIC FACILITIES Down the street from the Athletic Training Facility is the Mandy Stoll Tennis Center, home of the Stetson men’s and women’s tennis programs. Located on the east-side of the DeLand campus, the Mandy Stoll Tennis Center was completed in late 1996. The state-of-the-art facility is named in honor of Mandy Marie Stoll who was the tennis team’s top player when she was killed in an automobile accident in April 1988 during her junior year. During her three years as a member of the Stetson tennis team, she set school records of 20 consecutive wins and 27 wins in one season. The facility includes six courts, with plans for six additional courts in the future, a kiosk, three gazebos, courtside bleachers and a new scoreboard. Three of the six courts have been named: one for Mary Estella Palmer McNamara, the late wife of SU trustee Dennis McNamara of Patricia Wilson Field Orlando and a Stetson graduate; one in honor of former Stetson tennis coach Vicky Pate, also a Stetson alumna; and one in memory of Mandy Stoll. The Mandy Stoll Tennis Center has served as the host location for four Atlantic Sun Conference Men’s and Women’s Tennis Championships. The Stetson softball team has played 10 seasons at Patricia Wilson Field with tremendous success. The Hatters won their first 18 games on their home field in 2003 and have a combined home record of 278-124 (.692). The sparkling facility features spacious dugouts, multiple bullpen and batting cage areas, a state-of-the-art scoreboard, a brilliant lighting system for playing night games, and a concession area. A team field house and a press box were built in 2007-08. In 2010 Stetson hosted the A-Sun Tournament for the fourth year in a row. One of the most picturesque, fan-friendly stadiums in the nation, Melching Field at Conrad Park will enter its 15th season as the home of Stetson Baseball in 2013. At a cost Mandy Stoll Tennis Center of $4.5 million, Melching Field was the result of a joint effort between Stetson University, DeLand Sports Redevelopment Association and the City of DeLand. Built on the same site as old Conrad Park, Melching Field opened on Feb. 12, 1999. Hatter fans have flocked to Melching Field in record numbers. With more than half a million fans since the stadium opened in 1999, Stetson is often ranked nationally among college baseball attendance leaders. Melching Field features permanent seating for 2,500 spectators with grass berms holding approximately 500 additional fans. A full-service concessions area greets visitors upon their entrance to the park on Woodland Boulevard. The 2012 season marked the debut of a new high-tech scoreboard, which is located in left field and is equipped with a state-of-the-art message center and graphics board. The numerous golf courses in Florida provide the men’s and women’s golf teams with ample places to play. The Hatters host tournaments every year at the DeLand Country Club, Southridge Golf Club, and Victoria Hills Golf Club. Also, the cross country teams host a meet every October at the Sperling Sports Complex, and the crew team practices and competes at nearby Lake Beresford.

Altier, captain of the nationally-ranked 1982 Hatter baseball team, earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Stetson. Upon wrapping up his Stetson baseball career, he spent two years as a player/coach developing the sport in Perth, Australia. He then returned to Stetson as an assistant coach before being promoted to Ticket Manager, Director of Athletic Promotions, and then Associate Athletic Director. In these rolls, he spearheaded the department’s development efforts as well as oversaw athletic marketing and promotions, concessions and travel coordination.

Altier also served as Tournament Manager for the NCAA Division I Southeast First and Second Round Men’s basketball tournament hosted by Stetson in 1993 and 1996 at the Orlando Arena, and as Tournament Director for the 1999 and 2004 tournament. Stetson has taken great strides in the area of gender equity under Altier, increasing scholarships, participation opportunities and staffing for women’s athletics. The unprecedented success of the women’s tennis, golf, soccer, basketball and softball teams in conference competition during Altier’s tenure are evidence of his commitment to women’s athletics. In fact, under his direction Stetson’s women’s and men’s teams have won an impressive 15 conference championships. A hallmark of Altier’s professional career was the building of Stetson’s $4.5 million baseball facility, Melching Field at Conrad Park. Built in conjunction with the City of DeLand, Melching Field is regarded as one of the nation’s premiere college baseball facilities. Altier then turned his attention to construction of an on-campus softball facility, which broke ground in 2002 and was ready for competition in February of 2003. Patricia Wilson Field has been named Collegiate Softball Field of the Year six times. He was also instrumental in securing new state-of-the-art field lighting for both the softball and soccer fields in 2005. Under his guidance, the Athletic Department has also seen the addition of the Wilson Athletic Center, a $ 1.5 million health and wellness facility for the use of Stetson student-athletes. Stetson athletics has continued to grow under Altier’s guidance. Three new sports have recently been added - sand volleyball started competition in the spring of 2012, while women’s lacrosse will start in the spring of 2013 and football will return in the fall of 2013. The program is also growing in terms of staffing and facilities, with construction complete on the $6.7 million, 25,000 square-foot Athletic Training Facility that houses offices, locker rooms, and sports medicine facilities for the football, women’s lacrosse, and men’s and women’s soccer programs. Altier’s leadership has extended beyond campus, as he has taken on Atlantic Sun Conference leadership roles, chairing many committees and serving as conference vice-president. Additionally, he has served on the National Association of College Directors of Athletics Division IAAA board of directors, the NCAA A.E.C. Cabinet and is currently a member of the prestigious NCAA Leadership Council. Locally he has served as president of the DeLand Rotary Club, vice-president of the DeLand Sports Redevelopment Association, and is a graduate of Leadership DeLand and Leadership Orlando. He is currently a member of the board of directors of the Central Florida Sports Commission. Altier was honored as the West Volusia Sportsperson of the Year for 2004. In 2011 Altier was recognized by his peers in the National Association of Collegiate Director of Athletics as the Under Armour Southeast Region Division I Athletic Director of the Year.
