s the school year wrapped up, it was time for OSAA high school spring championships. I was fortunate to catch the 6A tennis finals, held in Beaverton, where both the boys and girls matches featured MAC athHorstkotte letes representing David president their individual high schools. Dylan King lost in three sets to a Grant teammate, and Jesuit junior Bess Waldram defeated Lake Oswego’s Katie Day in straight sets to claim the girl’s championship. All three grew up learning to play tennis at the club, and have represented MAC across the country. Dylan has verbally committed to Yale, and Bess has verbally committed to Notre Dame, where they’ll each play tennis when they graduate next spring. Not too shabby.

Dance at Newmark A sunny June Sunday found The Newmark Theater packed with MAC families gathered for the annual club dance recital. More than 150 performers, representing both recreational classes, and the MAC Company Dancers entertained the crowd of 700-plus for a full afternoon. Dancers ages 6 through 18 performed 33 numbers featuring ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary, hip hop and even boys break dancing. The tightly choreographed event is a credit to Dance Manager and Head Coach Laura Haney, Assistant Dance Coach Erin Zintek, and their talented staff. The highlight for many, including the dance program alums, was the showcasing of the graduating high school seniors who’ve spent over a decade in the program. Lizzie Allcock, Anna Dickson, Sydney Mesher, Courtney Sprouse and Ava Vossoughi are headed for college to further pursue their interests in dance and the arts. Best of luck to them all.

Fox’s legacy lives on Clear back in 1967, the club hired Mel Fox as its new athletic director, a position he capably held for 16 years. During his tenure, Mel expanded and greatly improved youth athletic programs throughout the club. Mel was an outstanding athlete and all-state football player at Franklin High School, and returned to Cleveland as a teacher and head football coach before joining MAC. He firmly believed that through youth athletics, an individual’s self-esteem could be greatly boosted,

benefiting the school, club and community in which he or she lived and competed. Mel was promoted to general manager of the club in 1983, a position that, sadly, he held for less than a year before his untimely death. In Mel’s memory, the club awards a $1,500 scholarship each year to a graduating Franklin High School senior. It was my privilege once again to address the entire school with all of the seniors in cap and gown, and present the Mel Fox Scholarship to Advanced Placement student and Concordia University-bound baseball player Fisher Dodd.

Rose Festival spirit Just the night before, the club hosted nearly 150 U.S. Navy, Coast Guard and Canadian sailors at a convivial reception in the Reading Lounge overlooking Providence Park. Many of the group took a quick tour, and all were invited back to use the basketball, volleyball and batting facilities the following day, free of charge. Prompted by club member Tom Stevenson, local council president of the Navy League, the club first held this event last year, and I hope that this opportunity to show off our club and contribute to the Rose Festival spirit becomes an ongoing tradition. The Mel Fox Scholarship and the Rose Festival Navy League reception are just two of the many examples of the club’s community outreach, which too often goes unnoticed in the local media and the community at large. Now, you know.

Family friendly Finally, I want to relay a recent conversation with a young family who relocated to Portland from the East Coast and joined MAC in the 2011 lottery. Soon after their arrival, a new acquaintance and lifelong club member told them that they absolutely had to join the club. They were somewhat hesitant, as the husband’s employer provided extensive workout facilities, but went ahead and took the plunge. They are so very happy that they did. Their co-workers often ask, “Why would you want to join a stuffy club like that?” Their response is, “We’re not sure how we could live without it!” Both the children and their parents stay busy with myriad club offerings, and they couldn’t be happier. This family’s enthusiasm caught me a bit by surprise, and reminded me that for many of us, it’s easy to take MAC and our dedicated staff for granted. It truly is an amazing club that’s often misconstrued in the community. Take the opportunity this summer to introduce a new family to the club and help spread the word. WM July 2015

ADMINISTRATIVE Manager’s column

arly in my career, working as an assistant beverage manager for Hilton Hotels, I distinctly recall Hilton’s national brand campaign centered around a rainbow. Depending on your rank in the kitchen, from first Norm Rich cook to executive chef, General Manager you received colorful stripes with each job promotion. On a recent trip to Los Angeles, I watched the co-pilot, with three stripes on his jacket sleeve, inspect our aircraft, and the captain of our flight, with four stripes, thanked us for flying as we departed the aircraft. Ranks such as these are common in our Armed Forces and are worn by nautical captains and crews. That said, I want you to know that none of us as staff at your club believe in practicing management by stripes. Although we all have defined levels of responsibilities and enjoy what we do, we never want our members to think they need to work the stripes to get what they need accomplished. We want to practice a management style that tries to make things easier and always be at your service, no matter how many stripes we have. We all want to own your questions and provide the simplest answers possible. At Your Service is the latest example of our efforts to make it easy. Reach out to our staff and let them earn your trust. Solving issues at the lowest levels empowers our staff and helps them to develop for future opportunities around the club.

The thrill of it all Each quarter, our athletic managers and coaches get together to talk about accomplishments by their athletes at a sports programs meeting more commonly known as the “taco bar,” hosted by Athletic Director Ed Stoner. A representative from the Athletic Committee and a Board Trustee attend the event, and coaches and managers get to brag about their great work and their successful athletes, teams and programs. It is inspiring to learn about how athletes are prepared and mentored to do their best at being champions. Recently, in a locker room discussion with one of our lifeguards and swim instructors, I was inspired by the story he shared with me of teaching an 80-plus-year old member how to swim. The excitement he had was memorable and passionate; he accomplished something meaningful for himself and his student, much to the surprise of her family.

Mission Statement MAC’s mission statement is to “Enrich lives, foster friendships, and build upon our traditions of excellence in athletic, social and educational programs.” Our coaches’ and members’ lives are enriched every day through hard work by training, winning often, and competing for the fun and challenge of it all. We are adding a component which we have always endeavored and now try and make part of everyday life – wellness. I believe we might want to add wellness to a future mission statement in support of this initiative.

Warm Welcome I want to personally introduce you to some incredible new staff members joining our management team. Josie Henderson is our new member services director, the new Linda Ornelas. While no one can replace Linda, we believe Josie can earn her own place of greatness in Member Services. She comes with a strong background of nonprofit service, lives not far from our neighborhood, and has two young adults who graduated from Lincoln High School. I also want to welcome Cathy Heinke as our new Youth Programs manger. Cathy previously was the membership manager at MAC 10 years ago, earned her teaching degree and taught elementary school for several years before returning to MAC to assume her new position. We have added great importance to this position, as we want to better serve this community, and have added a dedicated person to go along with this awesome responsibility. Lastly, welcome to Randy Lewis, who joins us as our new human resources trainer. Randy has a history of working for MAC as a consultant, assisting us in unifying our team and helping us accomplish a successful succession plan, ensuring our future is strong and vibrant. I cannot be more pleased to welcome them all to our team.

Website One more announcement; we are (again) working hard on a new website, one area where we have neither shined nor earned our stripes or practiced a tradition of excellence. While we have tried hard, our task is large, complex and complicated. This new website is a grand partnership between committees, members, management and purveyors to accomplish our goal. This goal is to better communicate with our membership and tie everything together to make it easy for our members. Over the next several months many will participate in creating this tool. Two new staff members assume this responsibility along with Digital Marketing Manager Chris Zoucha. WM July 2015

Club Scoreboard


Honoring MAC members for placing first, second or third in state, regional, national or international athletic competitions, or members who have qualified for nationals in events that qualify for championship funding.

saw an article in Parade magazine that discussed the “Cheaters guide to living to 100.” It spoke about who is living longer, where they are doing this and why they think this is happening. It should be no surprise Ed Stoner that nearly everything Athletic Director about which they spoke is something you can access at MAC. There are currently more than 53,000 centenarians in the United States, according to U.S. Census Bureau statistics, and that number could go as high as 600,000 by 2050, experts say. So what is the key to such longevity? Journalist Dan Buettner thinks it’s “blue zones,” the grouping of like-minded individuals who favor a more healthy and active lifestyle and support each other in staying that way. He notes four primary tips for living to 100 and beyond. First, “find your tribe.” We tell our teens who they hang out with matters, and the same is true for seniors. Surround yourself with people who have healthy habits, and you are more likely to have healthy habits, too. Next, “eat smart.” Following a primarily plant-based diet and controlling portions are common habits of longer-living individuals. The third tip is to “seek a purpose.” Called ikigai by Okinawans or plan de vida in Costa Rica, it is defined as the why of one’s life, a reason to get up each morning. Finally, “move.” Some form of physical activity is important. The article notes consistent exercise is better, but a simple lifestyle of physical activity (walking, gardening, etc.) is important. So, while communities in California, Japan and Greece offer blue zones supporting longevity, I believe MAC offers these elements, too. It can offer a tribe of like-minded individuals who value activity and friendships. And, while not every meal in our restaurants is plant-based or fish, there are plenty of healthy options that now carry a MAC Wellness icon next to them. There are numerous ways to volunteer and find purpose at MAC, whether through MAC Corps or within the committee system. And, yes, there are all kinds of ways to move naturally and to your level, ability and interest as well. I hope this month you will search or ask one of our staff about activities in which you might be interested to find your tribe at MAC to live a long and healthy life. WM

FACES IN THE CLUB MAC recently introduced Josie Henderson as its new Member Services director. Before joining MAC, Henderson was the executive director of the Oregon Public Health Association. Her prior experience includes serving as the chief executive officer for the Telemedicine Research Center and as executive director for the Association of Telehealth Service Providers. In the ’90s, she worked in the news and production departments at KOIN-TV. Josie holds a master’s degree in Public Administration from Portland State University and she grew up in Anchorage, Alaska, where she was her high school’s gymnastic team captain and MVP. Henderson is excited to bring her energy and experience to MAC to help foster excellence, community, health and well-being. Henderson replaces Linda Ornelas, who retired in June.

MAC welcomed back Cathy Heinke in the newly created Youth Programs Manager position. She oversees Child Care, Playschool, Athletic Camps/Clinics/Classes, Tiny Tots, Birthday Parties and Member Events Youth Activities. Heinke worked in the Membership Department at MAC for 10 years prior to receiving a master’s in education, and taught in the Tigard Tualatin School District for the past seven years. She grew up in the Bay Area and has lived in Portland for the last 26 years. She has teenage children who are active in football, baseball and soccer. Her pastimes include anything fitness related, the outdoors, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.

Intermediate member Tristan Anastas was named the 2015 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Men’s Outdoor Freshman of the Year last month, while also earning Freshman of the Meet honors at the RMAC Outdoor Track and Field Championships this past weekend at Pueblo, Colo. Anastas is a computer science major at the South Dakota School of Mines. He took silver medals in three jumping events during the championship meet, with NCAA Division II provisional leaps in the high jump and triple jump to go along with his second-place in the long jump. Anastas’ triple jump of 48-feet1.75-inches is good for a Hardrocker school record.

Junior member Bess Waldram won the Oregon State 6A Girls Singles Tennis Championship, the Metro District Title, and was named the 2015 Oregon Female Tennis Prep Player of the year during the recent Oregon Sports Awards. Waldram finished the high school season 23-0, and dropped only eight games over four matches during the state tournament. Waldram is currently ranked 27th in the country by the USTA for girls 18 and under, and holds the No. 1 ranking for the Pacific Northwest in the class of 2016 from Tennis Recruiting. She is now a rising senior at Jesuit High School and has committed to play for Notre Dame’s women’s tennis team after she graduates next June.

Junior member Matthew Sipowicz, who graduated from Oregon Episcopal School in June, capped his decorated tennis career with a third straight singles title at the OSAA 4A/3A/2A/1A state championships in Corvallis in May. Sipowicz defeated Valley Catholic junior Matt Biggi 6-1, 6-2 in the boys singles final. Sipowicz also excels at soccer, leading OES to the last two 3A state titles, and earning the nod as OSAA 3A All-State Player of the Year. Off the field, Sipowicz teaches math classes in Spanish to fourth graders at Vose Elementary School in Beaverton, and recently participated in a service project in the Dominican Republic. He is a 2015 Al Tauscher Award winner. July 2015

Junior member Tommy Mulflur and partner Michael Quinn prevailed as the 2015 OSAA 6A State Doubles Champions, defeating a Sunset team 6-3, 6-3 in straight sets. Mulflur enters his senior year at Jesuit, and Michael a junior at Jesuit. Mulflur joins his brother, Nic, who was a doubles champion in 2012. Tommy’s tennis career started at MAC with Wayne Pickard when he was 5 years old. Mulflur and Quinn beat the same Sunset duo for a Metro League District title earlier this year, Mulflur’s third league doubles title. Mulflur also writes for the school newspaper, the Jesuit Crusader. Tommy is the son of longtime members Tom and Cynthia Mulflur.

Summer Dining at MAC al Fresco T

he MAC finally has an al fresco dining option. The Sunset Bistro successfully opened up in June on the Sun Deck, and has received rave reviews from members and guests. This is the first time members can enjoy amazing cuisine and signature cocktails while outside enjoying the Oregon summer.

Sunset Bistro Now Open Mondays Due to popular demand, the Sunset Bistro is now open Monday through Saturday from 5-9 p.m. Come see Bar Manager Roni Pervizi and enjoy one of his specialty cocktails, such as the Grumpy Margarita with house made pineapple and habanero infused tequila, passion fruit puree, triple sec and lime juice. This No. 1 selling cocktail at the Bistro will have you coming back again and again.

Saturdays are back at MAC Every Saturday the Sunset Bistro will feature a rotisserie Prime Rib entree. This is the only day Prime Rib is offered at MAC until the reopening of the Men’s Bar in September. Slow-roasted prime rib with asparagus, fingerling potatoes and au jus is just $28. The full Bistro menu is also available. Saturdays also feature live music from some of Portland’s premier local talent.

Kitchen and Ballroom Repair Project On Schedule T he kitchen repair and ballroom renovation project is in full swing. The Facilities Department, under the direction of Elsa Lemoine with Capital Project Manager Diane Kelley, has literally created a new kitchen facility where none existed prior, while simultaneously gutting the main kitchen. Keeping the Sports Pub and Joe’s operating has taken a full team effort. Additionally, the opening of Splash and Sunset Bistro has come to fruition, which is a major undertaking. The Food and Beverage team, with the incredible help of the Facilities department, have kept services running and expanded offerings with the improved Sun Deck dining options of Splash and Sunset Bistro. The kitchen project started to repair leakage from areas of the kitchen floor. These

leaks were damaging valuable club equipment and disrupting member usage. Repairing old infrastructure can uncover many unforeseen issues needing to be addressed for the health of the club and safety of members and staff. The project has uncovered areas needing upgrades to meet current safety, building and ADA codes. Much of the work will never be seen, as it includes fixing mechanical, electrical and plumbing that was installed in 1965. Fixing issues properly as they are discovered is a solid investment in the health of the club for years to come. At the time of this article, the project is still on schedule for completion in mid-September. The first member event scheduled for the new ballroom will the club-wide indoor picnic on Friday, Sept. 25. Look for more information in the August Winged M. WM

Paper Napkins for One Week Why are there paper napkins in the Sports Pub and at the Sunset Bistro? The MAC laundry facility undergoes substantial, necessary repairs beginning Tuesday, July 7. During this time, to conserve the club’s linen and the expense of outsourcing, the restaurant is using paper napkins. We hope this interruption takes less than a week. Everyone can lend a hand by using fewer towels when possible. WM

Sports Pub Closed on Sundays During Summer


eginning July 12, the Sports Pub is closed on Sundays throughout the summer, unless Splash on the Sun Deck is closed due to inclement weather. The Sports Pub’s summer hours, beginning Sunday, July 12, are 6:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m. Monday through Friday; and 11:30 a.m.10:30 p.m. on Saturday. The Sports Pub reopens on Sunday on Sept. 13. If rain or cold weather is forecasted for a Sunday, the Sports Pub will be open from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and Splash will close for the day.

Splash hours The warm weather and great vibe on the Sun Deck are drawing people to Splash, which is open from noon-8 p.m. every day, weather permitting. The menu features something for everyone, with a full bar making your favorite specialty cocktails. The beautiful summer weather and inviting surroundings of Splash have filled the Sunday dining niche. For information regarding whether Splash and Sunset Bistro are open for the day call the Splash Hotline at 503517-6635 or visit WM July 2015

In Memoriam Dean E. Neal May 31, 1934-May 23,2015 Dean E. Neal, M.D. the devoted, caring, and compassionate eye doctor who was still seeing his patients through 52 years of service, unexpectedly passed away from a stroke on Saturday, May 23, 2015. Look for a full obituary in the August Winged M.

Harold D. Paxton March 12, 1924-May 5, 2015 Senior preferred member Harold D. Paxton died May 5. He was 91. Born March 12, 1924, in Widen, West Virginia, he was the eldest child of Hollie and Flora Paxton. Widen was a small, close-knit community, a coal company town in the Appalachians. Pax was a bright student who excelled at basketball, the clarinet and Shakespeare. He briefly attended West Virginia Tech, but World War II intervened and he was drafted. The U.S. Navy sent Pax to Princeton University, and then to Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He spent 1951 to 1953 in Germany in the U.S. Army. It was there that he met the love of his life, Ann Andrews, who would later become his wife. After Germany, he went to Washington University in St. Louis for his neurosurgical residency. Pax went to work at Good Samaritan Hospital and the University of Oregon Medical School (now OHSU) in 1956. He was chief of neurosurgery at OHSU from 1966 to 1991, where he was a respected professor and surgeon. While successful in his career, it was home and family that mattered most to Pax. He and Ann were married at her parents’ home in Scarsdale, N.Y., in March 1955. They moved to Portland in 1956 and had three children, Barbara, Richard and Kathy. While on sabbatical in Kenya in 1974, Pax worked at Kenyatta National Hospital, leading a team that founded the first neurosurgical unit in East Africa. During a second sabbatical in 1982, Pax re-enlisted in the army to practice at the Second General Hospital in Landstuhl, Germany, rising to the rank of colonel. After his retirement, The Harold D. Paxton International Professorship in Neurological Surgery Education was created by the OHSU Department of Neurological Surgery to honor Pax’s dedication to international neurosurgical education. Pax is survived by Barbara, Richard (Kelly) and Kathy (Brian Williams); and grandchildren, Noah and Lili Paxton. Contributions may be made to the Paxton International Professorship at OHSU.

Marjorie Wells Sept. 4, 1922-April 25, 2015 Marjorie Wells passed away peacefully Saturday, April 25, 2015, at Laurel Parc Senior Living Center. She was 92. Marjorie was born in Wheeling, W. Va., and was raised in Evanston, Ill. She attended DePauw University and graduated from the University of Wisconsin. Marjorie married her beloved Irv in 1945 and they moved to Portland, where they spent many happy years in Eastmoreland. They belonged to All Saints Episcopal Church. They enjoyed their dancing clubs, Waverley Country Club, MAC and entertaining. She was involved in many of her daughters’ activities. She is survived by her loving daughters, Debbie Hansen (John) and Pam Baker (Denny); adored grandchildren, Jeff Hansen (Rachel), Doug Baker (Jessica), Janis Rooker (Guy), Sandy Gingell (Will) and Steve Hansen (Melissa); and 10 great-grandchildren.

George P. Zenner, Jr. Aug. 27, 1934-April 8, 2015 Senior preferred member George Philip Zenner Jr., longtime owner of Zenner’s Sausage Company, passed away April 8 in Portland after being diagnosed with cancer. He was 80. Zenner was born in Portland on Aug. 27, 1934, to George and Juliette “Peetsie” Zenner. He attended All Saints School and Central Catholic High School, where he was a cheerleader for the 1952 state championship football team. After graduating from high school, Zenner served in the U.S. Army military police for two years in Munich, Germany, before returning to Portland to join his father’s meat business. He took over Zenner’s Sausage Co. in 1967. Under his management, the 88-year-old business moved its offices to Northwest Kearney Street and expanded to service local restaurants and retailers, as well as Portland area teams, including the Blazers, Timbers and the Hops. Zenner enjoyed traveling with family, hunting and baseball, which is evident by the extensive display of baseball memorabilia in his den. He was a member of MAC for 50 years, and regularly visited the Men’s Bar for lunch and dinner. George is survived by his wife, Sherri; daughters Melina Bacon (Sean), Colleen Donato (Gregg), Lisa Rinier, and Brandie Jones; sons Rian Zenner (Dezsea) and Jason Jones; and 17 grandchildren. He is also survived by his siblings Anne Marie Harrington (Dan), Carole Vranizan (John), Marilyn Prince (James), Mary Elizabeth (Dan) and James (Susan), and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, infant sister Joanne, and one grandchild. WM

A Long Tradition of Community Outreach I n 1991, as MAC celebrated its 100th anniversary, a group of dedicated club members created a philanthropic arm of the club to embrace our community, and Multnomah Athletic Foundation was born. Over the past 24 years, through the leadership of the board and contributions of club members, MAF’s mission of “Achievement through Athletics” continues through support for our community and neighborhoods. Throughout 2016, the foundation will celebrate its 25th anniversary, and we want to hear your stories. We are looking for short personal stories that illustrate how participation in athletics helped inspire all manner of achievement in your life. Tell us a story about your experience, moment or journey; about a person, coach or team who had a positive impact on your life. Want to learn more? Contact MAF Executive Director Lisa Bendt at

MAF Thrives With Your Support MAC members are an integral component of MAF’s community outreach. Your support – through the annual request for a $15 contribution in your July billing statement – makes

it possible for the foundation to provide community grants and scholarships throughout the Portland metropolitan area. From all of us on the foundation board, thank you in advance for your charitable gift. Together, MAC members and the foundation provide resources through community grants to nonprofit organizations offering programs and services, with a particular focus on underserved communities.

YOU CAN’T ALWAYS SEE BLINDNESS BUT YOU CAN HELP STOP IT Nearly 300 million people live with vision loss. Some are completely blind. Others can’t do simple things like read a street sign or recognize a friend’s face. But 80 percent of eye disease can be prevented or cured. OHSU’s Casey Eye Institute is ending blindness. We develop advanced screening, gene therapy and remote diagnosis that sends images around the world in the blink of an eye, so a patient in Samoa can get the same expertise as one in the U.S. We partner with organizations in Oregon and experts worldwide to give everyone a brighter future.

Conserve and Save, Take MAX to MAC The popularity of the Timbers creates demand for parking at and near the clubhouse on game days. Thousands of fans coming to Providence Park create traffic congestion and parking headaches. To alleviate these problems, MAC encourages members and guests to use public transportation. The member Parking Structure quickly fills to capacity with members viewing the games from MAC’s Stadium Terrace, and those attending at Providence Park. MAC rents space in nearby lots for complimentary member overflow parking, and nonmembers are charged a fee to park. TriMet and MAC provide an incentive for members and guests to use Portland’s convenient public transportation when commuting to the club. On any day of the week, the Concierge Desk exchanges a TriMet ticket or transfer for a free return ticket on the same day. On major congestion days, including Timbers’ game days, members receive two tickets per receipt. Exchanges are limited to the date on the original ticket or transfer. Using public transportation is a great way to avoid the member Parking Structure during busy times that are posted as parking alerts on the front page of the club’s Web site. The concierge gladly assists members and guests with TriMet bus and MAX schedules and route information upon request. Multnomah Athletic Club is served by the King Hill MAX Light Rail Station at SW 18th and Salmon, as well as several bus routes. MAC was actively involved in financing the Kings Hill Light Rail Station to encourage members and guests to use alternative transportation to the club. Taking light rail or a bus is a great way to contribute to the health of the environment and avoid overcrowding in the member Parking Structure.

Pilates for Newcomers Every client has a unique story for why they want to start Pilates. In your first experience with Pilates, either in a private or group session, expect to work on different Pilates equipment. After having a spinal assessment with your instructor and depending on your fitness level, you may find it initially challenging and overwhelming. Pilates embodies principles such as coordination, control and breath, all of which can be improved if they initially seem foreign to you. Everything we do in the first session will likely feel strange. Pilates is cumulative, which means that you’ll begin to recognize the exercises after a few sessions. After several more sessions, you’ll gain an even deeper connection, so the workout becomes more challenging, not easier, and never boring. –Tami Sousa is one of 11 Pilates instructors at MAC. They offer individual instruction, as well as group classes. For instructor bios and more information on classes and getting involved, visit, call 503-517-7551 or stop by the Pilates Studio on the basement level.

The Runner When Brian Muessle hit a rut in his workout, he turned to Pilates instructor Tami Sousa for help. Now he’s breaking age-group records and running stronger than he has in years.


rian Muessle hasn’t felt this good in years, if ever. The former collegiate runner’s legs are firing like pistons, he’s recovering from workouts faster and he just broke MAC’s 55-59 age group record in the mile. So what’s this guy on? Pilates. Last August, after hundreds of trips past the Pilates Studio door, Muessle stepped inside to ask a few questions, and he’s been going back ever since. And he’s been bringing his friends with him. Muessle, it turns out, doesn’t just practice Pilates, he evangelizes about it, preaching to convert everyone from casual friends to elite-level athletes to its benefits. “I tell everybody about it,” he says. “The people who try it and are open minded to it are always rewarded. I just want more people to give it a shot. A lot of guys won’t check their ego at the door. I have no problem doing that.” Muessle credits his enthusiasm to trainer Tami Sousa, who was in the studio when he walked in for the first time last year. After a session or two, Sousa discussed Muessle’s goals, strengths and weaknesses, and came up with a plan that also included training with the TRX system. “I’ve been been going for 9 months, and Tami’s been amazing with variety over that time,” Muessle says. “You think you’d be doing the exact thing over and over, but she’s bringing new things all of the time.”

“Fountain of Youth” Muessle was born and raised in the area, and grew up around the club. He went to high school at Jesuit, where he played basketball and planned to golf. When he didn’t crack the varsity golf team, he tried out for track and found his calling, lettering as a freshman without any experience.

He ran track at the University of Oregon his senior year on a team packed with distance legends like Bill McChesney and Alberto Salazar. “There were a lot of fast guys down there,” Muessle recalls, so he wound up switching to the steeplechase. “I’ve always been a runner, and running-wise, besides the core strength and endurance, Pilates has really helped with hip strength,” Muessle says. “I just have so much more endurance strength as a result of the Pilates and the TRX training. They’re complimentary.” Muessle says he can also feel the difference after workouts, when he recovers faster. “I can have a reformer workout Thursday night and go home with my body kind of screaming, and the next morning, I am ready to go do something again at a pretty high level,” he says. “It’s like the fountain of youth.” For Muessle, part of the attraction of Pilates is its simplicity. Even on the apparatus, most of the effort comes from resistance. There are no traditional weights. “Pilates is all about technique. It can take the smallest of movements to get the most efficient results, so if I’m a half-inch off, Tami notices and we’re making corrections,” Muessle says. “She knows her stuff and she’s very technique-oriented. She’s the straw tehat stirs the drink, and I can’t thank her enough.” Muessle initially looked into Pilates because he was feeling mentally depleted with his workouts and wanted to try something new, and he thinks there are plenty of people in the same boat. But he’s got one caveat – if you start, you’ve got to commit. “You have to go six to 10 times. You need to get enough variety,” he says. You may think you know what your weaknesses are, but you’ll find new ones... And you won’t regret it.” WM July 2015

Going to Your First Class If you want to change something you have to change something. Many people have grand plans to get in shape, lose that extra 10 pounds, get better at their sports or live longer and healthier. However, taking that first step can be paralyzing. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve heard, “I want to start taking your class but I have to get in shape first.” It may feel uncomfortable to step into a class or the weight room for the first time; the fear of failure is common. But rest assured that everyone in your class also had to take that first terrifying step of doing something uncomfortable and unknown. If you’re ready to shed your exercise paralysis, one way to ease into it is by introducing yourself, to a “red shirt” in the weight room, to a class instructor or to others in class. Let them know you’re new and see if they have any advice. Also, just as you don’t always buy the first thing you try on, if your first experience wasn’t quite what you were looking for, try something else. There are so many activities at MAC that you’re bound to find the right fit. Take that first step. We’re here to support you! –Fitness Manager Darrell Duvauchelle teaches MAX Force and Zumba classes at the club.

Mary Iverson dropped 60 pounds and conquered her fitness with the help of classes like Darrell Duvauchelle’s MAX Force.

28 | The Wınged M |

July 2015

The conqueror Mary Iverson struggled with her weight for years before she started taking fitness classes at MAC two years ago. Now, 60 pounds lighter, she’s got a new wardrobe and a new outlook on life.


ary Iverson remembers the day she finally committed to getting in shape. She was volunteering at a Vegas-themed party, and needed to dress for the part. The problem was, she didn’t fit into her ball gown. In fact, she couldn’t even get the zipper started. And things didn’t get much better when she tried to go dress shopping. “I thought, ‘OK, I really need to look at myself,’ and I went home, took off my clothes and looked in the mirror,” Iverson says. “It was quite a vision. And that’s when I started coming to the club to work out.” Fitting into a dress wasn’t Iverson’s only issue. She felt ashamed of her weight, and spent years wearing the same uniform; black stretch pants and oversized T-shirts. “I used to dread spring and summer. I really looked forward to when the weather would cool off and the days were shorter, because when it was dark out I felt like I could disappear. I felt invisible,” she says. “When it was dark and cold and cloudy I could wear coats.” Iverson’s weight problems spilled over into other parts of her life. As her fitness deteriorated, she stopped golfing and skiing, and she eventually found excuses to avoid going out. She felt that no matter what she wore, she didn’t look good.

Finding Fitness Iverson, now 56, lost weight relatively quickly, but it wasn’t easy. She kept a food diary and meticulously watched her calorie intake. An emotional eater, she had to replace her late-afternoon snacks with bowls of steamed vegetables. And, of course, she started working out. Iverson dove headfirst into fitness classes at the club, starting with Fitness Manager Darrell Duvauchelle’s Max Force class. That led to Evolution class with Erin Zintek, Zumba with Andrea Schetter,

Booty Barre with Pilates Coordinator Cristi Dillon, and more Max Force classes with Val Stegall. “I love the classes. They make exercising more fun. I’ve met so many people and we’ve become friends,” Iverson says. “ There’s camaraderie. Misery loves company, and I think you’re more motivated when you’re with a group of people. And I think the instructors can also motivate you.” The results are undeniable. Iverson has lost 60 pounds, and isn’t just doing the things she loves again, she’s doing them better. On a trip to Mt. Bachelor this winter, she made her way through an entire mogul field top to bottom without stopping and hitting every mogul perfectly. “My husband, who’s a runner, runs everyday, I felt sorry for him,” she says. “I was going through mogul fields, not stopping, and I’d look back and he’d be gasping. I never got sore. I wanted to ski another day. I was amazed how much easier turning was without the extra weight. I just had so much fun. Everything is more fun.” And she doesn’t have any plans to go back. In fact, Iverson tossed all of her old clothes, trading in her XXL T-shirts for form-fitting clothes. She told her family to never buy her another T-shirt. Iverson is also focused on long-term change, so that extra motivation from her classmates and instructors comes in handy. She eschews the word diet. In her mind, that’s a temporary remedy, and she’s looking for a permanent fix. “I think eating right and exercise are part of maintenance, where your new routine eventually becomes the norm,” she says. “Because you can’t go back. You just have to change, and that’s what I’ve been trying to do the last two years, and I think if I keep doing it, I will have changed for good.” WM

The Centenarian When she reached her mid-90s, Betty Digman found it was getting hard to make her way to MAC for her weekly workout. So trainer Nancy Petit took the workout to her home.


n 2003, Nancy Petit saw Betty Digman investigating some machines in the small weight room at MAC. Digman had some questions, and was looking for a personal trainer. Petit asked if she could help. Twelve years later, she’s still helping. Digman recently celebrated her 100th birthday with a family celebration at the club, and while good genes are certainly a contributing factor to her health – her 92-year-old brother was in attendance – her workout habits certainly help. When she started working with Petit 12 years ago, Digman walked over to the club twice a week from her home in The Legends building on Southwest 19th Avenue. And four or five years ago, after Digman fell and trips to the club became difficult, Petit went to her. She continues to visit Digman’s condominium twice each week. Petit puts Digman through a routine that includes balance work, high stepping, mini squats, stretching and more. “Basically, I am just trying to keep her moving and as fit as possible.” Petit says. Petit, a personal trainer and weight room supervisor, has worked at MAC since 2002. She has a special certification as a cancer exercise specialist. While she’s worked with older patients before, Digman is the first centenarian. “You want to help people maintain their functionality, to maintain their daily routine,” she says. “If someone is still independent, you want to keep it that way.” Born in Oregon, Digman is a long-time MAC member who learned how to swim at the club

in her younger days, and is a 1937 graduate of the University of Oregon’s Lunquist School of Business. She’s been active at MAC throughout the years; she fondly remembers participating in events like the club’s trip to Ashland. And when Petit started working with her, she saw some evidence of Digman’s early years at the club.

Trainers in the 1920s, however, had only a few options when assessing a client’s nutrition: fat, plump, medium, thin or emactiated. Among other things, they also checked their tongue, tonsils and complexion. The trainers of the ’20s gave Digman, then Betty Coon, high marks for fitness. Ninety years later, that has not changed. Even when she’s tired, Digman still rises to the occasion when Petit visits. “She has always had a great attitude. Even when she’s tired, she rallies, and she does it and she very rarely complains,” Petit says. WM

Take a summer vacation But Not From Your Fitness Routine


veryone plans on going to the gym on a regular basis, but that’s not always realistic. It can be hard to manage work, family, social and other demands along with your fitness. The summer months can add to this conundrum; vacation time means time away from the gym. Therefore, this summer, we want you to be prepared to work out while away from the gym, and maintain your fitness level. Here are some easy ways to exercise while away from the MAC this summer:

Cardio Options • Consider taking your cardio routine outside by running, walking or cycling. • Other exercises include jumping jacks, running in place, invisible jump rope, mountain climbers, squat thrusts/burpees, high knees, and heel-to-butt kicks are also cardio options that don’t require equipment.

July 2015

Body Weight Exercises • Think about exercises you can do anytime, anywhere, without equipment, such as squats, lunges, side leg raises, glute bridges, calf/heel raises, plank, push ups, tricep dips, crunches, and balance exercises.

Exercises With Minimal Equipment • Dumbbells can add extra weight to your body weight exercises or be used to perform upper body exercises. • Elastic bands are also inexpensive and can tone every major muscle in your body. For example, you can do lat pull downs, bicep curls, and lateral shuffles. Other equipment options include stability balls, foam rollers, medicine balls, etc. • For strength training at home, use household items like soup cans, a suitcase, water bottles, milk jugs, etc. For example, use soup cans in place of dumbbells to do upper body exercises, like a bicep curl or shoulder raise. • Try working out to an exercise video or podcast. If you need help designing a workout program to use while away this summer, use a MAC personal trainer to help you come up with a plan that works for you. Contact Personal Training Coordinator Andy Shupp at 503-517-7548 or for more information or to schedule a session with a personal trainer. WM

Athletics Cycling

Head for the Hills As in Eola Hills, the hills around Rock Creek, Bald Peak and other hilly rides MAC cyclists tackle during the peak riding days of mid-summer.


regon + July = MAC Cycling. There are so many cycling activities going on in the month of July that it will be hard to include everything in one article. We need to use our allotted space wisely!

Eola Hills Wine Ride: The tradition continues Let’s start with the biggest cycling event of the year, the Eola Hills Wine Ride on Sunday, July 19. Meet at the winery between 8:30-8:45 a.m. to sign waivers, pick up maps and catch the pre-ride briefing, before a roll out around 9:15 a.m. We continue to come back to Eola Hills for many reasons: The Willamette Valley scenery is spectacular, the roads have little traffic, there is wine, the brunch is delicious, the routes are mostly flat, there is wine, the air is fresh, it rarely rains, there is wine – there’s a theme here. Here is the low-down: There are three course options: 20-ish miles, 40-ish miles and 60-ish miles. The entry fee is $15 per person, and registration is open at theMAC. com. The entry fee includes maps, marked course, support vehicle, ride leaders and fun. Additional options include staying for brunch and making this a bonding event with MAC friends and guests. The fee for brunch is $25 and is billed directly to your account. During brunch, there is an awards ceremony. Be prepared to fill out a questionnaire and win some nifty prizes. Details are available online and on the cycling bulletin board in the basement at the clubhouse. Last year, due to the success of the ride, some of the proceeds went to local charities. We anticipate being able to do this again, so know some of the money will do good things.

Second Saturday Rides Rock Creek, July 11 – The Second Saturday ride series continues as cyclists meet at the Rock Creek Tavern to take on some hills, enjoy some flats, and catch some pretty spectacular vistas. The ride starts at 9:15 a.m., but try to be there

Digest This: Fixing Food Allergies T

oday, so many conditions or diseases can be described with one word, inflammation. In fact, any condition ending in “itis” means inflammation of the (insert body part here). Inflammation is the body’s protective mechanism, which responds to injury or insult. It is a healthy immune response, but problems arise when it doesn’t turn off once the acute injury has been eradicated. When the body experiences a cut, the area gets red and swollen; that is a healthy inflammatory response. However, sometimes diseases cause inflammation to go unchecked. Rheumatoid arthritis is a good example. It sends antibodies, which set off a cascade of immune responses that attack and destroy joints. Alternatively, inflammation can be the cause of diseases. An example of this is osteoarthritis, which happens when repeated injuries with accompanying inflammatory responses leads to wear and tear of the joints. It’s the presence of inflammation that makes most diseases perceptible and is what leads people to the doctor or the pharmacy. Most inflammatory episodes can be treated with steroids and analgesics or pain relievers. With chronic inflammatory diseases, immunosuppressive drugs may be recommended. Both treatments can be effective, but like many drugs, they have potential serious side effects. Knowing that inflammation is an immune response gone rogue, looking at sources of inflammation can help halt numerous disease processes before they even begin. So where should one look for embers of inflammation? I always start with diet and its effect on digestion, nutrition and intestinal integrity. I then look at other possible sources like medications, stress, sleep, infection, and finally, hormones. Eating an apple a day may keep the doctor away, but ginger, fish oils and curcumin keep inflammation away. As always, talk to your physician first before starting any supplements or over-the-counter medications. –Dr. Lindsey Nelson WM

Sonja Johanson’s lightning-fast performance on the speed wall at Canadian nationals earned her a trip to this summer’s world championships in Arco, Italy, making her the first MAC climber to qualify for the event. BY JUSTIN ROHM / PHOTO BY ADAM WICKHAM


AC climber Sonja Johanson spends at least 10 hours each week practicing for climbing competitions. Now she’s going to need to make a little time to study Italian. Johanson won a Canadian speed climbing national championship in May, automatically qualifying her for August’s International Federation of Sport Climbing Youth World Championships in Arco, Italy. Johanson, who has dual citizenship, is the first MAC climber to qualify for worlds in any discipline.

The Competition Johanson traveled to Central Saanich, British Columbia, a small town a half-hour north of Victoria, in mid-May for the Canadian National Championship for sport and speed climbing. The weekend didn’t start on a high note. Johanson, 14, just missed qualifying for the sport climbing semifinals. She tied for 17th place, and only the top 16 athletes advanced. Speed climbing was a different story. She qualified in first place with a time of 14.04 seconds, then advanced through a series of knockout rounds to the final, where she faced off against second-place qualifier Aleda Toronitz. Toronitz had placed just behind Johanson with a time of 14.3 seconds. In the final round, Johanson shattered her personal best, and finished a full second ahead of her competitor, winning the title for her age group in a time of 12.82 seconds. “Winning this title improved my self-confidence greatly. Knowing that I was able to place first will help me compete better at worlds in Arco,” Johanson says. “I look forward to racing with athletes from around the world.”

The Climbing Speed climbing is perhaps the most exciting indoor climbing discipline for the casual fan to watch. It is a head-to-head competition where two athletes climb next to each other on identical routes, and the first climber to the top wins. MAC added a speed-climbing wall during the Climbing Gym expansion last year, and while it’s only been complete for six months, climbers already are seeing its dividends. “The wall has proven to be an invaluable training asset for athletes in this discipline, with Sonja being an important influence and motivator among her peers,” says head climbing Coach Drew White.

The Competitor Johanson, who just finished her freshman year at Saint Mary’s Academy, began climbing in sixth grade. Now in her fourth year on the MAC Climbing Team, she is excited to be the second MAC climber named to a national team and the first national champion. While she also competes in sport climbing and bouldering, speed climbing is her strongest discipline, and the one she is most passionate about. The team trains speed twice a week during practice, but she typically comes in at least once more to get extra time on the route. Johanson also has found a good friend and training partner in Sidney Trinidad, a national champion from the Vertical World climbing team in Seattle. Johanson has benefited greatly from working with Trinidad, and the two make regular trips to train with each other. Last year Trinidad was the USA Climbing Female Youth B National Champion in bouldering, sport and speed climbing, and competed at the IFSC Youth World Championships, where she took second place in her category. While she also has put in strong performances in bouldering and sport climbing, Johanson is drawn to the speed wall. “I like the adrenaline in speed climbing, because you have such a short window of time to climb in, about 10 seconds for 15 meters,” she says. “It takes a great deal of concentration not to psych yourself out right before you climb. I like the suspense of approaching the wall and the simplicity of a race. Once you get on the wall, you rely on pure muscle memory instead of thinking out each move.” Since Sonja holds dual citizenship in the United States and Canada, she is allowed to compete in both the Canadian and United States National Championship competitions. At the Northwest Regional U.S. Championship for sport and speed climbing in Bozeman, Montana, Johanson finished sixth in sport and second in speed, qualifying her for the Division 1 Championships in Bend, after The Winged M went to press. At Divisionals, she will be accompanied by 20 of her teammates, including former U.S. National Team member Brett Walker. They are competing to advance to the U.S. National Championship in July in Atlanta. WM

Early Birds

It’s Never Too Early for Ice Cream – or Roses Come to lick the ice cream and smell the roses – in any order you desire – at the Early Birds Ice Cream Social on Friday, July 10, in the Washington Park Rose Garden. All early exercisers are invited to arrive for summer fun at the Information Kiosk near the Garden entrance any time between 5:45 and 6:45 a.m. The Birds are offering special culinary treats and delectable ice cream selections. Will the ice cream be from Tillamook, Umpqua, Häagen-Dazs, or some low-shelf substitute? The only way to find out is to attend. Fancy party costumes not necessary – come as you are. Just always remember, as U.S. Olympian Don Kardong stated, “Without ice cream there would be darkness and chaos.” Spend time sniffing your way around this internationally known rose garden, which was established in 1917. Roses originally were sent to Portland to prevent their destruction in the first world war. Rose propagation was known to be excellent here, leading to the formation of the Portland Rose Society in 1888. Portland was promoted as the “City of Roses” for the 1905 Lewis & Clark Exposition by planting miles of street-side rose bushes.


Golfing with Perspective Key to Improving Game 503-810-7555

52 | The Wınged M |

july 2015

Perspective. I often hear on the lesson tee that many of you want a more consistent golf game. Most of us have a hard time

understanding some of the variation in scores from week to week, or even from hole to hole. And while I agree that a 20-30 stroke difference between rounds might signal concern, being able to have perspective that this game has natural ups and downs, based on many factors, might help you understand how large the variation in scores can be. In this article I want to give hard evidence of this natural flow. I took Gary Woodland, currently ranked 29th in the FedEx cup points, and compiled his results for the current 2015 season. His finishes to date are: T2, T56, T5, T3, Cut, T45, Cut, T23, Cut, T21, T26, Cut, 2nd, Cut. Now Woodland is a guy that practices every day for hours on end, probably has an entourage of swing coaches, mental coaches and nutrition coaches (and likely coaches for things I’ve never heard of) and yet his results week to week still look like some unpaved road in Central Oregon. It could be swing difficulties that week, a particular course not fitting his game, muscles being too tight, poor putting performances, or even just waking up and feeling indifferent about golf that week. The important thing to remember when faced with score inconsistencies is to realize that these ups and downs happen in golf, and for all types of reasons, even to the best players in the world. This is very much a part of the game. The key is learning which factors are having the greatest impact on our personal game, so that we learn how to peak at the right time for the right events and for as long as possible.

Athletics Golf Continued from page 52 Moral of the story, ride the good days and weeks as long as possible. Enjoy them when they come, work hard to make them more frequent, and realize if they go, they will come back. And for the bad days and weeks, find ways to play through them, be observant not emotional about them, and realize they can go as quickly as they came. Most importantly, being able to put these ups and downs in perspective can very often minimize their severity and quite frequently create a more consistent golf game. Enjoy the process, enjoy the game. See you on the lesson tee. –Adrian Burtner


Sport Helps to Shape Young Lives

Brock Luthi started taking MAC gymnastics classes when he was just 7 years old, and eventually became a three-time Academic All-American.

When she was in eighth grade, gymnast Natalie Obradovich chipped her elbow, hurting it so badly she couldn’t straighten it out. When he was 12, gymnast Brock Luthi dislocated his knee. Later on, he injured his rotator cuff. No one told Obradovich or Luthi that gymnastics would be easy. But despite the

Athletics injuries, arduous recoveries, and long hours of practice, the two said that being on the MAC gymnastics team for a decade or more has been worth it. “The sport itself is so great,” said Luthi, a senior at Central Catholic High School. “The coaches are great, my teammates are like brothers, and it’s fun to be able to do things that people see and are amazed by.” Luthi started taking gymnastics classes at MAC when he was just 7 years old. Though he had played baseball and soccer, he felt more confident in the gym than on the field. His instincts were right. He joined MAC’s team and got stronger every year. Eventually he reached Level 10, the highest rung in the Junior Olympics ladder. Luthi earned a lot of awards along the way, including a state title for pommel horse. In addition, he was named an Academic AllAmerican three years in a row, a distinction given to male gymnasts who excel in the classroom as well as in the gym. Luthi says gymnastics taught him much more than just athletics. “It’s taught me about character, how to be a better person, how to be a better player and how to work hard, persevere and cope with loss and celebrate success,” he said. In March, area coaches and judges named Luthi as Oregon’s Gymnast of the Year. “Brock never gives up,” said Shuichi Goto, head boys coach. “He makes the team better because he never gives up and is always in a positive mood.” Natalie Obradovich never gave up either, said girls’ head coach and gymnastics department manager Meg Doxtator. After taking rec gymnastics class elsewhere, Obradovich joined the MAC gymnastics team when she was 8 years old. She liked the challenge of the sport and the discipline it took to do it well. And despite growing to nearly 5-foot-8inches in a discipline that favors 5-footers, Obradovich reached Level 8 and won several events over the years, including first at Regionals for the uneven parallel bars and first at state for the floor exercise. “The thing I am most proud of is sticking with it through it my senior year,” said Obradovich, also a senior at Central Catholic High School. “I’m going to look back on it and think ‘I gave it my all.” Obradovich said she enjoys gymnastics because she loves competing and flipping. “But more importantly, I love the atmosphere of the gym,” she said. “You go in there and people aren’t there to goof off. We are all working and our coaches are giving 100 percent, and we are there to get better, and we know it. We’re all in this together. Let’s Continued on page 56

My balance has improved, and my posture is improving after a lifetime of slouching. I joke about being tortured in the Pilates studio, and it is very strenuous, but when I finish I feel refreshed. I’ve made some wonderful new friends in the studio who inspire me to train vigorously, and I’ve met every MAC Pilates instructor.

Swim – Juniors

A Split Second Makes a Huge Difference What is a split second? In the sport of swimming, it could be another level of competition, another meet, winning an event, or a chance to take a trip for more competition. This past short-course season, which ended in March, showed that several MAC swim team athletes experienced this and more in the last three meets of the season. At the State Senior Championships at the Mt. Hood Aquatic Center, Grace Julian, 14, swam the 50-yard freestyle in the prelims, and missed out of the finals, top 8, in the event by a mere .02 of a second. Her time was a personal best. Later that day, coming back in the finals, she achieved her goal by dropping her best time in the event by .05 and making a Senior Sectional Standard in the 50 free by going 24.97. A week later, at the Senior Sectional Meet, in Federal Way, Washington, Brynne O’Shea, 15, placed in the prelims of the 200-yard backstroke. Her time earned her a second swim in the event. In the ‘C’ consolation finals, she finished second with a time that qualified her for a trip to the Winter Junior

Nationals in December in Austin, Texas. She exceeded the standard by .48 of a second, huge by time standards. The following week, Elise Kreutzer, swimming the 50-free at Age Group Sectionals

in Federal Way, qualified second, with her goal to win the event. After the swimmers touched the wall in a mad finish, Elise ended up in second place in the final with a time of 23.40. The time is .09 of a second under the


3905 SW Council Crest Drive


Athletics standard for the Winter Junior Nationals. The next day, Elise came into the finals of the 100-free, and again, her goal was to win the event. When the race was completed, she finished in second place with a time of 50.99. This is the exact time to qualify for the winter meet. Even though she was disappointed about not winning the event, she had a smile on her face about qualifying for a trip to Texas. These three ladies show the importance of best times, and achieving goals that qualify them for the next level of competition. Whether qualifying with the exact time or beating it by a large margin, it still counts. Just a reminder that there are as many athletes who miss a standard by this same amount. Every second counts, and for that matter, every split second counts, too.

Swim – masters

Fourth Consecutive Oregon Championship Each year in April, MAC Masters swimmers compete against teams from across the state, battling for points to take first in the Oregon Association State Championships. This meet represents the most competitive, dual-meet type format for Oregon masters – every point matters, with each swimmer competing in five to six individual events, plus relays. For the fourth straight year, the men and women have brought home the Medium Team Championship banner, finishing nearly 100 points over their talented rival, the Oregon City Tankers team. Several athletes took top three places in their respective events to guarantee a strong lead from Day One. Jessica Stacy, Ted Bonus, Scot Sullivan and coach/ swimmers Jill Asch and Brad Bachulis each swept first place in all of their events. Nick Wood and Lauren Binder were the distance king and queen of the meet, with triathlete Binder (65-69 age group) training with runs before the meet and biking after her grueling racing schedule – 3,500 yards between her six events. Most notable was the multitude of personal, state and regional records broken over the course of the meet. Sullivan broke an eight-year-old state record in the 1,000 free. Hailey clocked a zone record by breaking teammate Stacy’s 18-24 mark set in the 50 freestyle, and also took the 100 freestyle Oregon record. Stacy would then join her in breaking three Oregon records in relays (one being a 16-year-old record), alongside teammates Bachulis, Can Ergenekan, Asch and Kelsey Bowen.

Athletics Swim Continued from page 67 Beyond the records were the exciting swims and personal achievements banked throughout the weekend. Steven Hill took first in the 50 butterfly after a 20-year hiatus from the sport. Binder took chunks of time off of her events thanks to Bachulis’ afternoon workouts. Ergenekan and Bonus battled competitors, sometimes down to hundredths of a second. And Stacy swam the secondfastest 200 individual medley of the entire meet in her preparation for national championships two weeks later. These stories are what masters swimming is all about. Any and all levels are welcome to join. Please see the basement-level bulletin board for details on practice times, events and more.


Get Connected with Synchronized Swimming Still looking for the workout that will keep your mind sharp and your body coming to the MAC regularly? Masters synchro might be right for you. A study from Indiana University’s Department of Kinesiology found that the

MAC Masters Association Championship team, from left, Ted Bonus, Hailey Bambusch, Daemon Anastas, Lauren Binder, Steven Hill, Sharon Foley, Brad Bachulis, Alexandra Danielsen, Kelsey Bowen, Nick Wood, Can Ergenekan, Tomas Oliva, Scot Sullivan, Brent Washburne, Jessica Stacy and Jill Asch. arteries of older swimmers tend to be more elastic than those of younger nonswimmers, and that the muscle mass of older swimmers is equivalent to that of people 15 years younger. These advantages protect swimmers from age-related complications in gait and balance, lowering the risk of falls. Not only will your body get in amazing shape, the science says it helps your brain

too. The same study reports that adult synchronized swimmers appear to have greater cell density and stronger “connectedness” between neurons in the cerebellum (the brain’s balance and coordination center). Swimmers in the study also show very little decline in nerve conduction velocity (NCV) — the speed at which your brain tells Continued on page 70

The TwenTieTh PresidenT

Rev. Mark L. Poorman, C.S.C. What was your reaction to becoming president? Gratitude. This University energizes me. It’s a great collection of incredibly talented and accomplished people.

What should people know about UP?

We are producing extraordinary students here. They are the types of individuals that local, regional, and national employers need in their workforce.

What is your vision?

The best way I can begin to answer that question is to say that this University is going to continue to be a place of academic excellence; it will continue to be a place where people are thoroughly engaged in the community; and it will continue to be a place where there is deep interest in the personal and spiritual formation of students. That’s the consistent vision that the Congregation of Holy Cross has always brought here.

Moments that have influenced you?

My dad brought me to a soybean field (in Springfield, Illinois) when I was in the 8th grade. He turned to me and said, “This is where the temporary campus for the community college is going to be.” It was early April and that September Lincoln Land Community College became the first institution of higher learning in the area. My dad was the founding president. Today, the school serves about 17,000 students. I’ll never forget that scene. It taught me what hard work and a vision for an institution can accomplish.

Priorities for the future?

Infrastructure and scholarships. We need new classrooms and academic offices, as well as space for student services, and more residence halls. Further, students who want to be here and who can do the work should have the opportunity to do so with financial help.
