Coaching Staff

Gary Glassman Head Coach

11th Season Oneonta State, 1989

Now in his 11th season at Stony Brook, head coach Gary Glassman has made great strides with both the men’s and women’s tennis programs, transforming his teams into consistent contenders for the America East Championship. A member of the ITA regional ranking committee and past member of the NCAA Division I Tennis Committee, Glassman has led the men’s and women’s squads to a .500 or better record in all but one of their combined 20 seasons during his tenure. In his first 10 seasons at Stony Brook, Glassman has posted a combined men’s and women’s record of 253-143. Last season he guided the men’s team to a 17-5 overall record and a berth in the America East Tournament semi-finals, a spot the Seawolves have been in for eight straight seasons. On the women’s side Stony Brook finished with its 10th consecutive record of .500 or better, finishing 13-3 and making it to the semi-finals of the America East Tournament, making it eight straight seasons the women have reached that round of the tournament as well. Glassman and his staff led the men’s squad to a final regional ranking of 11th, earning the No. 1 seed at the America East Tournament. For their efforts, Glassman and his staff were named the America East Men’s Coaching Staff of the Year honors. Combined, eight Stony Brook tennis players earned All-America East honors, a record for the program. In the 2005-2006 season, Glassman’s men’s squad won the America East tournament over Binghamton, earning them an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament where they faced defending champion and #10 UCLA in the first round. The men’s team swept all but one conference award while Glassman was named conference coach of the year with Mike Crooks picking up SBU Athlete of the Year honors. During his 10 seasons at Stony Brook, Glassman has successfully transitioned the program into the America East Conference where it has become a title contender every season. Under his tutelage, Seawolves have been named All-America East a total of 45 times. Glassman was named 2004 Stony Brook CoCoach of the Year as five Seawolves--Philippe Amireault, Michael Crooks, Egil Anonsen, Tal Meir and Alamgir Wali--were named All-America East. Anonsen set the school record for career singles wins (71) while taking home Stony Brook Athlete of the Year Honors. The team rattled off 11 consecutive wins en route to a 19-3 record and achieved it’s first-ever ITA national ranking, reaching as high

Men’s Outlook Coming off one of its most successful seasons since joining the America East Conference, the Stony Brook men’s tennis team appears to be loaded once again for a run at the conference championship and a berth in the NCAA Tournament. After a 2008-09 season in which the Seawolves defeated every America East opponent and reached the America East championship match for seventh time in eight years, head coach Gary Glassman has plenty of pieces to build another America East title contender with after losing just three letterwinners from last season’s squad. Stony Brook finished with a 17-5 overall record in dual matches, the most wins for the program in five years. During one stretch the Seawolves rolled to nine straight victories that carried them into the America East championship match. Glassman and his staff were named the America East Coaching Staff of the Year for their efforts and will have five players back for 2009-10 who combined for 84 of the squad’s 115 singles wins a year ago. After transferring in to the program from Drake University, senior Halvar Dil took over as Stony Brook’s primary No. 1 player down the stretch last season and finished 5-4 in the position. Named second team AllAmerica East at No. 1, Dil finished the

season with an overall record of 19-9, more than doubling his previous personal best in victories and finishing second on the team in wins. He also teamed with junior Ivan Rummel to form a potent combo at No. 1 doubles where the pairing played every match at the position and finished 10-7, the second most doubles wins by an SBU team. Rummel also turned in an outstanding season and led the squad with a 20-10 record. He will team with Dil once again this season to secure the top flights for the Seawolves. An all-conference selection as a freshman, he posted a perfect 6-0 record in his matches at No. 2 singles in 200809. Wining nine of his first 10 matches last year, he earned regional ranking as high as No. 11. Senior Jon Epstein was another member of the Seawolves’ squad that had a career year. A stalwart in the middle of the Stony Brook lineup, he matched Dil with a career-high 19 wins last season, finishing at 19-6 overall. Going 11-3 at No. 3 a year ago, he will again anchor the middle of the SBU lineup. Injuries slowed senior Ilan Shvartz last season and he was limited to just 18 singles matches, the majority of which came during the fall portion of the season. An All-America East selection his first two years, his return

should fill the hole in the middle of the lineup where the Seawolves lost two players who played the majority of the team’s Nos. 4 and 5 matches. He enters the season just 10 wins shy of cracking the top-five at SBU in singles victories. Stony Brook has had a history of first-year players making an impact and last season was no exception. Sophomore Mitch Wong earned first team All-America East honors at No. 6 singles a year ago, posting a 7-4 mark there. He finished his frosh campaign with a 17-7 record and will be expected to hold down one of the bottom two positions for the Seawolves this season. He was also an effective doubles player, earning his second first team all-conference award with Youssef Fassi-Fehri after the pair led the team with 11 victories. Five new faces will add their names to the mix for Stony Brook in 2009-10. One, Max Sztabholz, is transferring in from Lindenwood University in Missouri and will bring collegiate experience to the lineup. Three of the four in the freshman class, Ferdinand Brunet, Roope Kailaheimo and Delon West, all come to Stony Brook from Europe, bringing their international experience to the squad. Rounding out the first year players is Joe Agler, a Long Island product from Bellmore.

Women’s Outlook Stony Brook’s women’s tennis team in 2009-10 will be one of the most experienced teams in the America East Conference. Last season the Seawolves sported a roster that had six first-year players. The inexperience of the squad turned out to be a non-factor in a season that was one of the best for women’s tennis in recent years. Stony Brook finished with a dual match record of 13-3, its best season in terms of winning percentage in 16 years. With last season’s inexperience quickly turning into success, head coach Gary Glassman and his staff now has one of the best foundations in the America East Conference to build upon. Only two players were lost from a year ago, with only one of those seeing significant time in dual matches in the spring. With a total of seven letterwinners and 80 singles victories returning, the Seawolves could mount a challenge to reach the conference championship match come April. Stony Brook’s 2009-10 team will be a young one again, with just one senior on the roster. That one senior is Paola Rodolfi. A three-time All-America East performer, she hopes to bounce back from a season that saw injuries limit her to just one match in the fall and 13 overall. When she did play in the spring she was effective at the No. 3 position, going 4-1 there, and should be the anchor of the middle of the lineup for the Sea-

wolves. She was also solid in doubles where she earned all-conference honors with Salome Mkervalidze at No. 2. She begins her senior campaign just 12 singles wins short of the top-five alltime at SBU. Junior Fanny Charliquart was also slowed by injuries a year ago, but finished 7-3 in singles and 6-4 in doubles. A solid player in both, she could play an important role by adding some more experience to the lineup on a team filled with sophomores and freshmen. Junior Gayatri Krishnan was one of the first year players in the lineup a season ago and turned in some dominating performances on her way to first team All-America East honors at No. 6 singles. A versatile player, she posted a 14-3 record in singles play, getting time at all flights except No. 1. She also reached double figures in doubles play and should be mainstay in the lineup once again. Last season’s freshman class had nothing short of an outstanding year and are ready to return for another solid season of tennis for the Seawolves. Playing most of the season at No. 1, local product Katherine Hanson posted a respectable 11-10 record as a freshman playing in the top position. Showing her potential, she defeated nationally ranked Fani Chifchieva from Auburn early in the season and is ready bring her year of experience back to the top

of the SBU lineup. Anna Pieschl and Mkervalidze also made quite a splash in their first seasons in the Seawolves program. Both solidified the bottom half of the lineup and should do the same again in 2009-10. Mkervalidze played in every position in the lineup and led the team in victories with her 18-7 record, one that included perfect records at No. 4 and No. 6. Pieschl got hot down the stretch, winning her final eight matches; seven in straight sets. She finished with a 16-5 record, going 6-0 at No. 4. An addition to the roster in January, Prerana Appineni stepped right into the lineup and provided some solid play at Nos. 2 & 3. She finished 7-4 and should see a lot of time in the middle part of the line up in 2009-10. In contrast to a year ago, only two new faces will be on the Stony Brook squad in 2009-10. Nini Lagvilava comes to Long Island all the way from Tbilisi, Georgia where she won a pair of tournaments, while Aylin Mehter comes from just down the road in Massapequa, N.Y. where she was a two-time all-state player. Both will add immediate depth to the team and could challenge for positions in the lineup right way, adding more versatility to the Stony Brook lineup than it had in 2008-09.

Administration Jim Fiore

Director of Athletics Hofstra, ‘91

On July 23, 2003, President Shirley Strum Kenny introduced Jim Fiore as the ninth Director of Athletics in Stony Brook University history stating “Jim has the energy, drive, enthusiasm and intelligence to take this program, in the tradition of Stony Brook, very far, very fast.” At the time of his hire Fiore was one of the youngest Directors of Athletics in NCAA Division I. Since his arrival at Stony Book from Princeton University in August 2003, Fiore has hit the ground running and pointed Stony Brook on an aggressive course for success in all aspects of intercollegiate athletics. He has undertaken a major restructuring of the intercollegiate athletics program including the hiring of new coaching and administrative staff, dramatic facility upgrades and improved revenue generation. Fiore has also turned his attention to department-wide fundraising efforts, with his efforts seeing a dramatic increase in major gifts, annual giving revenue and overall volume of donors. In an effort to take a lead role in the university’s $300 million capital campaign, the Department of Athletics has secured several major gifts, three of which were the largest philanthropic gifts given to athletics in its history. In July 2005, the athletic department adopted a new philosophy for the annual Providing Athletes With Support (P.A.W.S.) fundraising campaign, a philosophy that streamlined the annual fundraising process to prepare Stony Brook to exceed all fundraising expectations in the future. In addition, he created the Athletic Director Advisory Council; a 19-member board comprised of Stony Brook alumni, staff and community members that will advise Fiore in the fundraising advancement process. His attention to the bottom line resulted in a new athletic department budget process that relieved the department of a multi million dollar debt and an annual systemic deficit, resulting in a balanced budget. The first time that Stony Brook has realized that goal since mov-

ing to the Division I level. Fiore has seen the department balance its budget every year since 2004 and has overseen a dramatic budget growth to $23 million. Beginning in the ‘04-’05 academic year Stony Brook University Athletics realized a near 20 percent increase in its operating budget due to new revenue streams for the department. Additionally, Stony Brook has teamed up with Islanders Media Inc. as the athletic department continues to nurture and foster strong bonds with the Long Island corporate community. Under Fiore’s leadership, Stony Brook student-athletes have also attained new levels of achievement in the classroom. Since his arrival to Stony Brook, the GPA for America East Seawolf student-athletes has risen from 2.86 in 2003 to a 3.08 in the Fall of 2008. In the fall of 2008, 15 of 20 teams earned team GPAs above 3.0 and 57 percent of Stony Brook’s America East Fall student-athletes were named to the America East Honor Roll or the America East Commissioner’s Honor Roll for earning above a 3.0 or 3.5 GPA respectively. The ‘07-’08 academic year proved to be Stony Brook’s most successful season academically as its student-athletes compiled a department best overall G.P.A. of 3.06 and saw over 250 student-athletes named to the America East Honor Rolls - the most since joining the America East in 2001. Coinciding with this success, the 6,000-square foot state-of-the-art Goldstein Student-Athlete Development Center has proven to be an advantage in recruiting and for current Seawolves student-athletes. Fiore currently serves on University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr.’s Cabinet and was also appointed by former President Kenny to co-chair the strategic plan for image and identity committee. He has also served on the honorary degree, weekend life, NCAA certification and the university sponsorship committees. In 2005 he was appointed to the Executive Committee of the America East Conference and currently serves as the Chairman of the group. Fiore also is a member

of the NCAA Division I Championships/ Sports Management Cabinet and has been appointed to the NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel. In August of 2008 he was appointed to the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) executive board. Prior to his arrival at Stony Brook, he provided department-wide leadership in support of the director of athletics at Princeton University from 1999-2003, a program that supports 38 sports, 40 club sports programs and more than 1,000 student-athletes. A member of the senior management team, he was responsible for all athletic programming oversight of all varsity intercollegiate programs. In addition, Fiore directed all personnel matters including the coordination of national searches for coaches, staff and administrative positions. Along with the director of athletics, he also assisted in the planning for short and long-term capital improvements. During Fiore’s tenure, Princeton achieved extraordinary success on the fields of play and in the classroom. A native of Long Beach, N.Y., Fiore graduated from Long Beach High School and went on to attain his Bachelor of Arts degree from Hofstra University, where he played free safety for the football team. Upon graduation from Hofstra, Fiore went on to receive a master’s degree in Education from Springfield College. Additionally, he received a certificate from The Sports Management Institute held at the University of Notre Dame and University of South Carolina. Fiore and his wife Lisa have a son Michael who is seven years old. They currently reside in Stony Brook.
