Head Coach

Chris Catanach HEAD COACH 26th season Tampa, 1983 Career Record: 779­151 23 NCAA Tournaments 17 SSC Championships One NCAA Championship

University of Tampa head volleyball coach Chris Catanach is in his 26th season in charge of the Spartan program, leading the team to become one of the elite programs in the country with 17 Sunshine State Conference titles, 23 NCAA appearances, 11 trips to the Elite 8, two national runner­up finishes and the 2006 NCAA II national champi­ onship. Sporting a 25­year career record of 779­151, he earned his 300th victory in just eight years (Oct. 28, 1992 vs. North Florida) and averages 31.2 victories per season. Nationally, Catanach's .838 career winning percentage ranks fourth among the winningest active NCAA II coaches while his 779 total victories rank third among active NCAA II coach­ es. Last season, he led his squad to the program's 13th straight NCAA tournament as it won the SSC championship for the fourth consecutive season. Camila Saade and Melissa Vanderhall also captured ESPN The Magazine

Academic All­District Honors as Vanderhall was also the SSC and South Region Player of the Year while being an All­American. The 2008 SSC and South Region Coach of the Year has coached an NCAA record 38 All­Americans while having at least one selection in 13 consecutive seasons. Catanach led his team to the 2007 NCAA South Regional title and advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight for the third straight year. He also coached four individuals to All­ American honors as Erin Clark captured SSC Player of the Year Honors. In 2006, he made history while guiding his Spartan squad to a 35­1 season and capturing the program’s first NCAA II national championship with a 3­1 victory over North Alabama in the title game. He was also named National Coach of the Year as four of his players were named All­ American. In 1991, Catanach became the first and volleyball coach in the Sunshine State Conference to earn National Coach of the Year honors. In 1993, he was inducted into the Sunshine State Conference Hall of Fame while also being a member of the UT Hall of Fame Class of 2002. He has been named the SSC Coach­of­the­Year 12 times in his 24 year career, most by any coach in league history. Catanach has also been named the South Region Coach of the Year 10 times. Catanach took over a program that was just five years old in 1984 and posted a 32­4 record in his first year as a coach. Two years later, his squad earned a school record 41 victories. He has seen 16 of his players earn a total of

Head Coach 28 All­America selections, including 10 first­team members to go with numerous all­region and all­conference selec­ tions. While signing some of the area’s and state's top play­ ers, his recruiting philosophy is "to go where the players are" which has led him from California to the Caribbean. Academic success is given as much consideration as athletic prowess and Catanach can say that more than 95 percent of his recruited athletes complete their degree require­ ments at UT while five have earned CoSIDA Academic All­ America honors. In addition to earning All­America honors, Dawn Rawlins (1995­99) was twice honored as the SSC Scholar Athlete­of­the­ Year and four­year All­America Danielle Faggion (1996­2000) was the 1999­2000 SSC Female Athlete­of­the­Year. Catanach is a member of the NCAA II Volleyball Committee and is a voter for the AVCA top 25. In addition to his coach­ ing duties, Catanach held the position of interim athletic director in 1989 and served as an assistant athletic direc­ tor from 1998­2004 with NCAA compliance related duties. A native of the U.S. Virgin Islands, Catanach was the recipi­ ent of the University's award for the outstanding physical education graduate. Prior to becoming head coach, he worked for one year as an admissions representative for UT. Chris is married to Linda, who played basketball and vol­ leyball at UT from 1979­83. In 1988, she became the sec­ ond woman to be inducted into the UT Athletic Hall of Fame. The couple has two daughters, Kellie and Tina.

2009 University of Tampa Volleyball

2009 Outlook The University of Tampa will send out a squad that will not fea­ ture any seniors for just the second time in the program’s 28 years. It will be a first for head coach Chris Catanach, as he will lead a team that welcomes three newcomers along with a stable of young returners that had strong contributions in winning the Sunshine State Conference title last year. The team will be led this season by a trio of juniors starting with the reigning SSC Player of the Year Melissa Vanderhall. She had a breakout season for the Spartans during her sophomore cam­ paign making an impact on both sides of the ball leading the team in kills with 381 and ranking in the top three in digs and blocks. Taking the place of graduated setter Gabriela Saade will be junior Meghan Sherman who saw significant playing time last year when Catanach ran a 6­2 offense. The Ponte Vedra, Fla., native played in all 32 matches last season recording 478 assists and 17 service aces. Sherman has had her fair share of experience in postseason play seeing action in every NCAA tournament match that Tampa has played in since her freshman year. Kaleigh Cunningham will be the third junior expected to lead the team as she will fill the void left by Annalea Warren who graduat­ ed. Cunningham saw a solid amount of playing time last season from the backup role playing in 31 matches and starting six. She finished fifth on the team in kills with 158 and her 138 digs were sixth­best. Sophomore Julie Howlett will be the Spartans’ new libero this sea­ son, taking over for graduated senior Camila Saade. Howlett saw immediate playing time in her freshman season getting into 28 matches and starting one while tallying 153 digs and nine service aces.

Melissa Vanderhall led Tampa in kills while being the SSC and South Region Player of the Year. The remaining two spots up front will see fierce competition as junior Sam Macks, sophomores Camille Hanks and Eva Dupay, and freshman Danielle Selkridge will battle for playing time. Macks should be one of the favorites as she was an all­SSC honor­ able mention as a sophomore and was second on the team in hit­ ting percentage with a .428 mark as a starter. Hanks was one of seven Spartans last season to record over 100 kills, while Dupay made the all­SSC freshman team. Selkridge did not play last season as a redshirt but is expected to make a strong push for playing time in her first full season. The Spartans welcome three talented incoming freshmen, Jessica Yingling, Molly Krull, and Brooke Hacker. Yingling, voted the Florida 6A High School Player of the Year as a senior, is expected to make a push for playing time along with Krull who is likely to take the backup role as a setter. Hacker will take the year to learn the collegiate game and the program. Sophomores Brianne Yeates and Janae Nelson look to contribute as they both now have a full year of experience under their belts. Yeates will push for time as a defensive player while Nelson will look to contribute from the middle hitter position. Freshman Kady Bruce redshirted last season and will lend a hand from the middle hitter role as well in her first season.

Sam Macks was first among all Spartans in hitting percentage and blocks.

This season will present a new challenge for Catanach, as he will have to guide his team that lacks senior leadership. However, the young players have had their fair share of experience playing in a combined 27 NCAA postseason tournament matches. While the goal every year for Catanach is to win the Sunshine State Conference title, he expects his group to outwork their opponent each and every match.

NCAA National Champions The third time proved to be a charm for the #1 University of Tampa (35­1) volleyball team. This was the third time and first since 1999 that Tampa reached the finals but this time they pulled out a 3­1 victory over #6 North Alabama (35­6). It was a familiar start for Tampa in the first game as once again they found themselves behind right out of the gate, 2­0. But as they have many times before, the Spartan closed the early gap and pulled away for a game one victory of 30­25. Danielle MacDonald smacked down six kills for the team lead, Katelen Dixon added five. With Margeaux Sinibaldi tallying nine digs and the team picking up four blocks, the Spartans were able to hold the North Alabama Lions to a .094 attack percentage. The second game was rather sloppy for Tampa as they com­ mitted a total of nine hitting errors leading to a poor .123 attack percentage. North Alabama took advantage of those mistakes and built themselves a 25­20 lead that Tampa could­ n’t overcome. However, the Spartans defense was rather solid as they picked up four more blocks. Whatever Coach Chris Catanach said to his team during the 10 minute intermission between games two and three to get them out of their funk, worked, especially for Erin Clark. The junior lit up the scoreboard with a game­high seven kills and threw in an ace just in case. The Spartans never trailed as the roared out of the gates, jumping to a quick 3­0 lead. They were up by as much as 10, before the final score of 30­21. The fourth and final game was completely dominated by Tampa. The game went back and forth and was tied at six then the Spartans went on an 11­3 run that doomed the Lions. For the second time in as many nights Dixon closed the match with a crushing spike. Tampa took the last game by the score 30­17.

UT Athletic Hall of Fame

The University of Tampa Athletic Hall of Fame was established as a way to aid the athletic department, its players, and teams through sponsorship of banquets and improvement of dressing, training, practice, and playing facilities. The hopes were that the existence of the Hall would encourage and motivate exemplary contributors, players, and coaches to exceed prior accomplish­ ments. Several of the Hall members’ accomplishments since leaving the university include: four World Series rings, one World Series win­ ning manager, an Olympic Gold Medal, six Super Bowl rings by three different players, a number one NFL draft selection, 18 play­ ers drafted or started in the NFL, a three­time Wimbledon tennis player, two major college football All­Americans, one Heisman Trophy nominee, a PGA Rookie of the Year, one NBA veteran and two alumni coaches who have guided UT teams to national cham­ pionships. Four former Spartan head football coaches have been voted into the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame. The University of Tampa Hall of Fame, which began in 1962, now includes 156 members. ’36 ’62 ’55 ’52 ’47 ’51 ’51 ’64 ’62 ’55 ’39 ’65 ’49 ’55 ’36 ’50 ’65 ’66 ’52 ’59 ’37 ’66 ’41 ’67 ’55 ’52 ’36 ’67 ’59 ’68 ’47 ’58 ’68 ’36 ’55 ’69 ’36 ’51 ’60 ’70 ’56 ’41 ’65 ’71 ’62 ’54 ’62 ’68 ’48 ’56 ’72 ’73 ’69

UT Academic All-Americans Selected by CoSIDA

Since 1952, the College Sports Information Directors of American (CoSIDA) have honored student/athletes for academic as well as athletic achievement with the creation of the CoSIDA Academic All­America teams. Verizon sponsors the awards in partnership with CoSIDA. To be eligible, a student/athlete must be in his/her second year of resi­ dence at the institution, must be a starter or important substitute and must maintain a 3.2 cumulative grade point average. Student/athletes meeting these critieria are then nominated by each school’s sports information director (SID). SIDs within a region vote and select a CoSIDA Academic all­Region team. Those student/athletes’ names are then placed on the All­America ballot, which is voted on by all college member SIDs across the country. Following is a complete list of Spartan Academic All­Americans: Name Michael Farrell Jeff Leonard Penny Dickos Cathy Fox Donna Schroeder Cathy Fox Penny Dickos Christian Gregory Jeff Leonard Kent Engstrom Cathy Fox Penny Dickos Steve Mauldin Susanne Wolmesjo Steve Mauldin Steve Mauldin Jorgen Adolfsson Niklas Fredriksson David Dion Brian Ussery Jeff Sargent Roger Palm Allison Macsas Chris Rosenbaum Margeaux Sinibaldi

UT’s Nickname & Colors

Information from Under the Minaret by Dr. James W. Couigton In the early years, The University of Tampa started as Tampa Junior College. In 1931, the school began varsity sports competition. A committee sought to name the school teams. Since St. Petersburg Junior College, nicknamed the Trojans, was intended to be the arch rival, the name Spartans was selected from the ancient Greek Trojans/Spartans war. When the school moved into the Tampa Bay Hotel in 1933, head football coach Nash Higgens chose the team colors. Due to the fact that most of his players came from Hillsborough High (red & black) and Plant High (black & gold), Coach Higgens combined the colors of those two schools making the University’s colors red, black and gold.

History of The University of Tampa When The University of Tampa began classes on October 5, 1931 as Tampa Junior College, there were 62 local stu­ dents, tuition was $120 per semester, and there was no building to call home. Almost two years later, on Aug. 2, 1933, UT found its permanent home in the old Tampa Bay Hotel and began its journey in earnest. It has been a journey of alternating success and hardship, as the University has adapted and reinvented itself to meet new challenges. Beginning with Frederic Spaulding, who almost single­handedly forged his dream of a local University, to the present day as UT enjoys the greatest economic and academic expansion in its history under its 10th president. Some would say it has been a bumpy ride, but all would agree it has been interesting. During that first year when, in the grips of the world­wide Depression, the University’s 700 surplus dollars were divided among the faculty as pay, and the University was accepting notes, insurance policies and deeds on homes in lieu of tuition. There were the war years, when military pilots were being trained in Tampa and GIs began returning from the war to go to school, and married couples and some faculty members lived in Plant Hall on the upper floors. There was a huge struggle for accreditation, which lasted for 20 years and was finally achieved in December 1951. There were the glory days of our powerhouse football team, which struck fear into the hearts of our athletic rivals. Pajama parties, sock hops, parades and second jobs were daily rituals. The creation of the University of South Florida created another challenge, as many believed it would swallow UT. President David Delo arrived to take the University in another direction, and began to expand the size of the cam­ pus, construct new buildings and build enrollment. In over 77 years, UT has educated and placed thousands of alumni in positions of leadership at all levels of society around the world. Today, its future is brighter than it has ever been, as it continues to expand in terms of academic excellence, prestige, resources and enrollment.
