1981 REFLECTION - The birth of a national postseason competition for women’s athletics came from the passing of Title IX in 1972 and as 277 Division I institutions sponsored women’s sports entered the NCAA in 1981. It would be in that same year when, out of 95 participating Division I field hockey schools, the University of Connecticut would be selected to host the first-ever NCAA Division I Field Hockey Championship at Memorial Stadium on November 21 & 22, 1981 in Storrs, Connecticut. During that historical year in women’s college sports, under new national governance, seventh-year head coach Diane Wright would guide her Connecticut team to a 15-2-3 overall record and a berth in the home-hosted contest. The underdog UConn upset top-seeded and top-ranked Massachusetts, 4-1, in the championship final to seal the title for the Huskies. They became the first-ever NCAA Champion in the sport, the school’s first-ever NCAA National Championship team (men’s or women’s) and the first-ever college women’s team to be crowned as NCAA Division I Champions. UConn standouts Laurie Decker, Lynn Kotler, Lorie McCollum and Rose Smith were named to the NCAA All-Tournament Team, while Decker and McCollum became Connecticut field hockey’s first All-American selections. Since the 1981 National Championship season, Connecticut has qualified for 21 of the 29 national postseason tournaments held, with nine appearances in the NCAA National Semifinals.

University of Connecticut field hockey coach Nancy Stevens and the word success are synonymous. Entering her 22nd season at Connecticut and her 33rd overall as a head coach, Stevens has firmly secured the tradition of UConn field hockey among the nation’s best. Recognized as one of the top collegiate field hockey coaches in the nation, she has compiled an impressive 516-165-24 record for a .749 winning percentage over her previous 32 seasons. Overall, she ranks second among active Division I coaches in overall wins (516) and ranks first in games coached (705) - entering 2011. Stevens has guided the Huskies to the NCAA Tournament in 14 of the last 15 seasons overall and during that span, Connecticut has earned 10 NCAA quarterfinal berths and advanced to the NCAA National Semifinals four times. The Huskies are currently enjoying a streak of nine straight NCAA berths, dating back to 2002. Stevens became the second coach all-time to win 500 games when the Huskies defeated No. 5 Syracuse, 2-1, to win their fifth BIG EAST Tournament Championship in the last six years. Stevens is one of a select group of U.S. collegiate coaches to attend an International Hockey Federation (FIH) High Performance Coaching Course. The 25 coaches in attendance included top European club coaches as well as coaches preparing their teams for the Olympic Games. From this course, she received a further recommendation to attend an FIH Final Coaching Development Course. Stevens has taken two Division I programs to a No. 1 ranking (Connecticut in 1999 and Northwestern in 1985). Her record at UConn over 20 years stands at 336-116-8 (.739). Under Stevens, the Huskies have qualified for the BIG EAST Tournament in 20 of her 21 seasons, with a league record 11 different squads (2009, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2002, 2000, 1999, 1998, 1996 and 1992) winning the conference tournament title. The 2010 season was the 15th UConn squad under Stevens that earned a berth to the NCAA Division I Championship, as her 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2000, 1999, 1998, 1997, 1996 and 1990 teams qualified as well. The 2007 campaign marked UConn’s second straight berth in the NCAA National Semifinals and the program’s fourth overall under Stevens. Since beginning BIG EAST play in 1989, the UConn field hockey team has captured 11 of the 22 BIG EAST Tournament titles, including three in a row from 1998-2000 and four straight from 2004-07. The Huskies have advanced to the conference championship game 17 times. In addition, the Huskies earned 11 of the last 14 regular season titles, including a stretch of five in a row from 1996-2000 and four consecutive crowns from 2002-2005. A six-time BIG EAST Coach of the Year, Stevens is also a five-time National Field Hockey Coaches Association Mideast Coach of the Year (1996, 1998, 2003, 2004, 2006). Of UConn’s 15 NCAA Division I Tournament appearances under Stevens, she led the Huskies to the NCAA semifinals four times (1998, 1999, 2006, 2007). The UConn field hockey program has been ranked among the nation’s elite consistently throughout Stevens’ career. In 1999, the Huskies sat atop the national poll for five consecutive weeks.

Additionally, three of her players at Northwestern were finalists for the Honda Broderick Award, with forward Jennifer Averill voted the winner in 1985. Former UConn All-America Kristen Kelly was named a finalist for this award in 1994. The program’s all-time leading scorer, Lauren Henderson, was a finalist for the prestigious honor in 2004. Most recently, Lizzy Peijs was recognized as one of four finalists for the national player of the year award in 2006 while Lauren Scherer was a finalist in 2009 and Melissa Gonzalez a finalist in 2010. Stevens also acted as Northwestern’s assistant lacrosse coach for nine years and helped guide the Wildcats to five NCAA Championship appearances in her final seven seasons.

Pa., Stevens received her bachelor’s degree in education, summa cum laude from West Chester University in 1976.

The team allowed just 0.57 goals per game to its opponents, which ranked first nationally and helped earn goalkeeper, Melissa Bostwick, second-team All-America honors. The Huskies have consistenty ranked among the nation’s leaders in fewest goals allowed during her tenure. “Cheri brings a wealth of goalkeeping experience to our program,” UConn head coach Nancy Stevens said. “She has developed two All-America goalkeepers during her five years on the coaching staff. Cheri is a tireless worker who always puts the needs of the team first. We are very fortunate to have her in our program.”

He is also a member of the New England regional training squad coaching staff. In 2004, Caddy acted as a selector for the United States Women’s Indoor Hockey National Team.

In 2008, Caddy served as a member of the Junior National Camp coaching staff. Always doing what he can to spread the sport, Caddy conducts U.S. Level 1 coaching courses across New England.

Prior to her stint at Providence, Herr was an assistant field hockey coach at Fairfield University during the 1998 season, when they captured their first-ever Patriot League title. She also served as a graduate assistant at Syracuse, her alma mater, from 1996-1998.

Prior to Connecticut, Caddy was an assistant field hockey coach at Ohio State and was an assistant field hockey coach and team manager for the United States Under-18 Women’s Team. Prior to his experience at Ohio State, Caddy was an assistant coach at Quinnipiac University for the 1999 season when Quinnipiac captured the Northeast Conference Championship.

While at Syracuse, Herr was a four-year starter in goal for the Orangewomen. During her career, Syracuse went a combined 54-23-6, won two BIG EAST Championships and made two NCAA appearances under the direction of head coach Kathleen Parker. Herr, a member of the BIG EAST All-Conference Team in 1993 and 1995 and an All-America selection in 1995, is Syracuse’s current record holder for career saves, save percentage, goals against average, single game saves and shutouts at Syracuse.

“During the recruiting process, we work hard to identify players who have a passion for the game. Our role as coaches is to create a supportive environment and give our players the freedom to reach their full potential. We encourage unselfish play. When you give up the ball to a teammate, you will always get it back. Putting the team first is the surest path to a championship.” - Nancy Stevens, Head Coach “Every field hockey player will comment on how fulfilling and rewarding of an experience it was to play for their particular college. They­­­­ will say how the lessons learned, the friends made, and the memories shared will stay with them forever. The same is true at UConn, but what separates UConn from other programs is the staff, who somehow manage a fun and nurturing, yet get-down-to-business attitude. Nancy Stevens’ unrelenting competitive edge inspired me to believe that my hard work will accomplish amazing feats both on and off the field. “ Two-Time All-American Katie Stephens (‘01)

“Walking out to the game field wearing the UConn colors is only one of the proud memories I have of being a Husky. In high school, this was what I dreamed about, taking my play to the next level and becoming a part of a union where everyone has the same dream- to become a champion. Not only did we become champions, but we survived the ups and downs of working our hardest and making sacrifices together. Playing for Nancy Stevens and for UConn taught me many lessons in leadership, friendship, trust and dedication.”

“Looking back upon my career at UConn brings a smile to my face and warmth to my heart. They were the most memorable years of my life, where I learned the most important lessons of life, including the value of friendship and family. I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunities I had at UConn, both on and off the playing field. I will never forget how proud I was to put on a Husky uniform and represent the University of Connecticut. We valued not only our performance, but our relationships as well.” Three-Time All-American Laura Klein (‘01)

“Playing field hockey for UConn is an experience I will always treasure. Of course the memories and friendships will stay with me forever and so will the lessons learned from all the dedication and hard work. But what stands out the most in my mind as I look back on the past four years is that playing field hockey at UConn was fun. Practice was the time of day I looked forward to and putting on that Husky uniform for game time was a true honor. It is a tribute to Nancy Stevens and her staff and also to my teammates that we were able to play in an elite program and at such a high level while still being able to enjoy the moment. I will always be thankful for that.” All-American Meagan Hoffmann (‘06)

“Playing field hockey for one of the top athletic and academic institutions in the nation is something I will always be grateful for. It was one big adrenaline rush. All of the hard work and determination that my coaching staff and teammates possessed showed through until our very last moment together on the field. Thinking back about all of the old memories- the success and the adversity- I would not change a thing.” Two-Time All-American Rose Aspelin (‘96)

“Reflecting back on my time at Connecticut makes me realize how special those four years really were. Through field hockey, I have gained so many precious memories and experiences that I will forever carry in my heart and mind. Many people that I have met there are now my closest friends and an extended part of my family. My years as a collegiate athlete are exactly as I dreamed they would be and I wouldn’t give them up for the world.” Three-Time All-American Amy Herz (‘01)

Kiplinger’s Personal Finance ranks UConn in the top 35 for best value in public colleges. Whether students’ long-range goals are preparing for a career, pursuing a graduate degree, or attending medical or law school, “students can receive a stellar education without graduating with a mountain of debt,” Kiplinger’s noted. UConn has a variety of programs to help many students financially, ranging from merit scholarship opportunities to need-based financial aid packages, all designed to support a large number of qualified students. The University also has many part-time campus jobs with flexible hours that help students earn extra spending money or build their résumé with hands-on work experience.

With our main campus in Storrs, we’re a major academic institution that values its small-town roots. Students enjoy the familiarity of an intimate academic institution, while being just a short drive from major cities.

BUILDING A VISION

STORRS CENTER O

n Wednesday, June 29, 2011, the Mansfield Downtown Partnership joined with the Town of Mansfield, the University of Connecticut, and Storrs Center master developer LeylandAlliance, LLC and their partner Education Realty Trust (EDR) in welcoming Mansfield residents and friends in celebrating the ceremonial groundbreaking of Storrs Center. Governor Dannel P. Malloy, United States Congressman Joe Courtney, Secretary of State Denise Merrill, State Senator Don Williams, State Representative Gregory Haddad, Mansfield Mayor Elizabeth Paterson, UConn President Susan Herbst, and Mansfield Downtown Partnership Board President Philip Lodewick addressed the crowd of over three hundred who gathered at the intersection of Dog Lane and Storrs Road (Route 195) in Mansfield. Mansfield resident and current UConn student Spencer Hamlin performed the National Anthem to begin the ceremony. Following remarks from the visiting officials, the ceremonial groundbreaking took place near the site of the first building to be constructed as part of the future downtown. Storrs Center, which has been in planning and development for almost ten years, will be a mixed-use, pedestrian-oriented town center located within an easy walking distance of the UConn Storrs campus, Mansfield’s Town Hall and Community Center, and E. O. Smith High School. The new downtown will host a wide variety of shops, restaurants, offices, and cafés, along with new residential options, including studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. The new, market-rate residential units will appeal to young professionals, empty nesters, faculty, graduate students, and other residents of the area – anyone who desires a quality lifestyle in an upscale town center with all of the social and cultural advantages found near one of the nation’s top universities. Storrs Center has been planned as an environmentally-sensitive and sustainable downtown that combines residential, commercial, civic, and recreational uses within a walkable area. Of the nearly fifty acre site, only about fifteen acres will be developed (twelve acres of which were previously developed). The remaining acreage will be set aside as a conservation area,

which abuts the Whetten Woods, a preserved area held by Joshua’s Tract Conservation and Historic Trust. An intermodal transportation center, adjacent to the new parking garage, will accommodate buses, shared cars, electric cars, and bicycles. Mansfield residents and visitors will have convenient access to many amenities without needing to make multiple car trips. The first phase of Storrs Center, scheduled to open in the fall of 2012, will be located north of Dog Lane, near Buckley residential hall, and will include 127 apartments and 27,000 square feet of commercial space. The second phase, consisting of 160 apartments and 40,000 square feet of commercial space, will be south of Dog Lane and is scheduled to open in fall of 2013. “It is one of the most exciting public/private initiatives in the state,” Governor Malloy remarked during the groundbreaking ceremony. “This project does all the right things: It maximizes the value of the University of Connecticut, puts people to work, and creates a town center to enhance the quality of life around a great university.” For more information, please visit www.storrscenter.com or contact the Mansfield Downtown Partnership at 860-429-2740 or mdp@ mansfieldct.org.

In addition to all that the city of Hartford and the state of Connecticut has to offer, the region within two hours of Storrs is ripe with cultural and entertainment possibilities.

SPRINGFIELD

( 47 miles)

The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame is located less than an hour from Storrs in Springfield, Mass., just minutes from the YMCA where Dr. James Naismith invented the game in 1891. A must-see for any fan of the hardwood, the Hall of Fame reopened in the fall of 2002 in a brand new $45 million home just off of Interstate 91 in Springfield. The pinnacle of any basketball career, the hall’s long list of inductees now includes UConn men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun, a 2005 inductee, and women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma, a 2006 inductee. Once you finish your tour of the Hall of Fame, Springfield’s neighboring suburb of Agawam is the home of Six Flags New England, the region’s largest amusement park.

NEW YORK CITY

(142 miles)

The United States’ largest city and “the media capital of the world,” New York City is located approximately two hours from Storrs and offers a wide array of cultural opportunities. From the glitter of Times Square, to the vast expanse of Central Park, to the majestic skyline, New York City is an incomparable destination and one that can be easily reached by the Metro-North train lines that run into southern Connecticut. UConn students also enjoy the city’s active sporting landscape. The BIG EAST Conference men’s basketball tournament, played every March at fabled Madison Square Garden, is one of the country’s premier collegiate conference championship events. The New York metro area also boasts 10 major professional sports franchises, including the NFL’s New York Jets and Giants, Major League Baseball’s New York Mets and Yankees, the NBA’s New York Knicks and New Jersey Nets, the NHL’s New York Islanders, New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils and the WNBA’s New York Liberty.

BOSTON

(86 miles)

The birthplace of the American Revolution, Boston’s historic Freedom Trail is a living history textbook, covering everything from the Battle of Bunker Hill to the midnight ride of Paul Revere. Meanwhile, the city blends its old world charm with a cosmopolitan new world attitude that is evidenced by some of the trendier shops and restaurants that line both historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace and the Back Bay’s Newbury Street. One of the world’s foremost centers of education, Boston is home to over 50 colleges and universities; perhaps the entire world’s most concentrated collection of colleges. The greater Boston area also includes the summer beach resorts on Cape Cod and the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. A hub of sporting activity, the 2004 and 2007 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox have called fabled Fenway Park home since 1912. TThe 2008 NBA Champion Boston Celtics and the 2011 Stanley Cup Champions Boston Bruins also can Beantown home, while the 2002, 2004 and 2005 Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots and MLS’ New England Revolution play outside of the city in Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium.

ATHLETICS It was a remarkable year for UConn Athletics in 2010-2011. The men’s basketball team won its third NCAA Championship in school history and, in the process, UConn became the first school to ever advance to a BCS bowl game and both the men’s and women’s NCAA Final Four in the same academic year. UConn sponsors a total of 24 sports that compete on the NCAA Division level and is a member of the BIG EAST Conference. UConn has won 11 national championships since 1990 and has won 100 BIG EAST regular season or tournament championships.

Director of Athletics

JEFFREY HATHAWAY J

effrey A. Hathaway has provided effective leadership for the University of Connecticut Division of Athletics as he enters his ninth year in that position in 2010-11. At the same time, he has also become a leader for college athletics on both the national and conference level. He has played a vital role in the success story of UConn athletics for 20 of the past 22 years as he was the Executive Associate Director of Athletics at the school from 1990-2001. In his only two years away from the Storrs campus, Hathaway enjoyed a successful tenure as the Director of Athletics at Colorado State University from 2001-03. His first eight years as UConn’s Director of Athletics have arguably been the most successful in school history. The 2010-11 academic year was an amazing one for Husky athletes. The men’s basketball team won its third NCAA Division I Championship in its history while the football team played in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl – its first appearance in the Bowl Championship Series. The Huskies have now appeared in four-straight bowl games. In addition, the women’s basketball team played in the NCAA Final Four for the fourth-consecutive season and set a college basketball record for most consecutive wins with 90. The UConn baseball team made history as it made its first-ever appearance in NCAA Super Regional play. The men’s soccer, women’s soccer and field hockey teams have took part in NCAA tournaments while representatives from men’s and women’s track and field and women’s diving have also taken part in NCAA action. During 2009-10, Hathaway directed UConn to reach an agreement with IMG College, a division of IMG Worldwide. This 10-year athletics multi-media rights partnership is worth more than $80 million in guaranteed payments to the University. In 2007-08, UConn successfully completed the NCAA certification process. The institution was previously certified, once every 10 years as set forth by the NCAA, in 1998. Hathaway provided leadership for a comprehensive, year-long self study of the operations in the Division of Athletics, a site visit by a peer review team, a NCAA certification committee’s review of the self-study

and a report by the peer review team. The Division also reached a new long-term agreement with Connecticut Public Television for women’s basketball. UConn also completed a landmark ten-year, $46 million corporate partnership agreement with Nike, Inc. to exclusively provide footwear, apparel and equipment for Husky athletics. In addition to his leadership role at UConn, Hathaway is serving as the chairman of the prestigious NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee in 2011-12 as he represents the BIG EAST Conference. Hathaway is in his fifth and final year on that committee. As a member of the ten-person committee, Hathaway takes part in the selection and administration of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship and the administration of the CBS television contract. He is only the fourth individual in the history of the BIG EAST Conference to serve on the committee, joining Dave Gavitt, Jake Crouthamel and Mike Tranghese. Hathaway is a member of the Division I-A Athletic Directors Association Board of Trustees and on the Executive Committee of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA). Some significantly historic achievements have occurred during Hathaway’s time as Director of Athletics. UConn became the first school to win the NCAA Division I men’s and women’s basketball championships in the same year (2004) and the football team was victorious in its first ever bowl game - the 2004 Motor City Bowl. In 2010-11 UConn became the first school to ever participate in a BCS game and both the men’s and women’s Final Four in the same academic year. Private fundraising for UConn athletics continues to provide exceptional academic and athletic opportunities for student-athletes. UConn secured a gift of $2.5 million from alumnus Mark Shenkman in 2004 for the building of the Mark R. Shenkman Training Center, an intercollegiate and recreational services facility that serves the entire university community. Under Hathaway’s guidance, the Division of Athletics received the University’s Environmental Leadership Award for the construction of The Burton Family Football Complex and the Mark R. Shenkman Training Center. The two buildings are the University’s first projects certified as meet-


ing the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards for “green” buildings. At its 13th annual awards ceremony in March of 2008, the Connecticut Real Estate Exchange presented UConn with the “Green Building Award” for these environmentally-friendly facilities. In his role as Director, Hathaway also oversees UConn’s Recreational Services program. Serving the entire University community, approximately 580,000 individual uses were logged last year, reflecting the popularity of the diverse health and fitness offerings to students, faculty and staff. Hathaway leads a head coaching staff that is one of the most experienced in the country. UConn has 12 head coaches that have been in their current position 10 or more years as of the 2010-11 academic year, including women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma (27th year in 2011-12) and men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun (26th). UConn has the distinction of being the only school in the nation with two active Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame coaches in Calhoun (Class of 2005 inductee) and Auriemma (Class of 2006 inductee). Hathaway was also a key factor in the opening of Rentschler Field in 2003 – one of the country’s newest and most modern BCS college football facility. During Hathaway’s career, he has always made the student-athlete the top priority. In the spring and fall semesters of the 2009 calendar year, UConn’s student-athletes excelled in the classroom as nearly 50% of the 650 studentathletes achieved a 3.0 “B-or better” semester grade point average. In addition, the Division of Athletics has consistently maintained a 99 percent retention rate among its student-athletes. “My focus is on the student-athlete,” says Hathaway. “That’s the most important part of our program. Our primary mission is the continued academic success of our student-athletes. The challenge is to identify people early in the process and assist them in charting a career path. In addition, we want to provide a quality experience in intercollegiate athletics for our student-athletes.” The University of Connecticut was saluted for its community service efforts by the National Consortium for Academics and Sports (NCAS) three times under Hathaway’s watch for its community service efforts. UConn was also honored by the NCAS in 2006 and ’07 for its efforts to assist former student-athletes in earning their college degree. In the 2006-07 academic year, Hathaway served on the University search committee to hire Vice President/Chief Operating Officer Barry Feldman and Executive Director of the Alumni Association Lisa Lewis. He was a member of the search committee for the University’s new president – Dr. Susan Herbst. Hathaway’s leadership has earned him respect and recognition both on the national and local levels. He was one of four finalists for the “Athletic Director of the Year” in the spring of 2008 at the inaugural Sports Business Awards by Street and Smith’s Sports Business Journal. In the summers of 2007 and ‘10, Hathaway was honored by NACDA as the AstroTurf Athletic Director of the Year for Division I-A in the Northeast region (which includes the New England states and New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New Jersey). In 2004, The Sporting News named Hathaway to its “Power 100 List” comprised of the 100 most powerful people in sports. He received the Joseph J. Fontana Distinguished Service Award from the Connecticut High School Coaches Association in the spring of 2005. In the winter of 2006, Hathaway received the General Robert R. Neyland Outstanding Athletic Director Award from the All-American Football Foundation.

During his tenure at both Colorado State and UConn, he was a member of the NCAA Division I Championships/Competition Cabinet, as well as the Postseason Football Licensing Subcommittee, which is responsible for issues involving postseason football competition and the certification of bowl games. On the conference level, Hathaway was the chair of the BIG EAST Athletic Directors Executive Committee through November of 2009. He is also past chairman of the BIG EAST Championship and Competition Committee as well as the league’s Finance Committee. Hathaway has served as a guest presenter at both the NACDA and NACMA (National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators) conventions in the past. In addition, he has also served as a lecturer at the IA Institute sponsored by the Division I-A Athletic Directors’ Association, held annually in Dallas. Hathaway originally came to Connecticut in November of 1990 as Senior Associate Athletic Director. In that role, he oversaw the day-to-day operations of the Division of Athletics. He served internally as a program administrator for several sports, including men’s and women’s basketball and men’s and women’s soccer at UConn as the Huskies won four national championships in those sports during his tenure - two in women’s basketball (1995 and 2000) and one each in men’s basketball (1999) and men’s soccer (2000). Hathaway was also the program administrator for football. He played a critical role in the upgrade of the football program to Division I-A status as UConn became the first ever school to transition from the I-AA level to a BCS football conference. During Hathaway’s tenure at Colorado State, he oversaw a 15-sport program - nine women’s teams and six men’s. The Ram football team made a pair of bowl appearances while Hathaway was at CSU. The men’s basketball team won the Mountain West Conference tournament in March of ‘03 and advanced to the NCAA tournament for the first time in 13 years. The women’s basketball team advanced to postseason play twice, including a trip to the second round of the NCAA tournament in 2002 and the semifinals of the 2003 Women’s NIT. Hathaway was an extremely successful fundraiser during his time in Fort Collins. The school drew national attention for a $15.2 million gift from the Bohemian Foundation and president Pat Stryker for football stadium renovations and expansion. Prior to his first stint at UConn, Hathaway served in a number of capacities at his alma mater - the University of Maryland - from 1982-90, including Assistant Athletics Director for Marketing and Promotions, Acting Assistant Athletics Director for Business Affairs, Athletics Business Manager and men’s basketball trainer. Hathaway earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Athletic Administration from the University of Maryland in 1981. He later received a Master’s Degree in General Administration (1991) from the University of Maryland and is currently continuing work on a PhD in Educational Leadership from the University of Connecticut. He attended The Sports Management Institute at the Universities of Notre Dame and Southern California. Hathaway also completed the Management Development Program at Harvard University. Born June 20, 1959, in Cheverly, Md., Hathaway and his wife Paula have two children: Meghan (October 15, 1991) and Michael (June 11, 1995).

J. Robert Donnelly Husky Heritage

SPORTS MUSEUM T

he sights and sounds of more than a century of intercollegiate athletics competition come alive during a visit to the J. Robert Donnelly Husky Heritage Sports Museum. Located in the new and expanded UConn Alumni Center in the heart of the University of Connecticut’s main campus in Storrs, the Husky Heritage Sports Museum is the ultimate library documenting the wide-ranging successes of Connecticut’s athletic programs. The state-of-the-art design and layout of the 2,700 square foot Husky Heritage Sports Museum, named after benefactor and 1940 Connecticut basketball and football captain J. Robert (Bob) Donnelly (shown above with wife M.J.), vividly captures all of the energy, excitement and enthusiasm that is associated with “Huskymania”. Donnelly passed away on Sept. 26, 2005. The visitors’ UConn experience begins with the University of Connecticut “National Champions” Gallery. This unique museum addition, located in the entrance foyer of the Husky Heritage Sports Museum, was unveiled in December of 2004 and will serve as a permanent tribute to all University of Connecticut varsity teams that climbed to the mountaintop and earned the right to be called National Champions. Currently, a total of 14 national champion squads, representing four different UConn sports, have team photos and national championship logos on display in the National Champions gallery. Included in the National Champions Gallery is the unbeaten 1948 men’s soccer team of Coach John Squires, the 1981 and 1985 UConn women’s field hockey teams of Coach Diane Wright, the 1981 men’s soccer team of Coach Joe Morrone, the 2000 men’s soccer team of Coach Ray Reid, the six national championship women’s basketball teams of Coach Geno Auriemma (1995, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2009), and the 1999, 2004 and 2011 UConn men’s basketball teams of Coach Jim Calhoun. Upon entering the Husky Heritage Sports Museum, visitors are greeted by a full figure statue of Jonathan, the legendary mascot of all Husky athletic teams. Oversized banners proudly hang from the ceiling, displaying action images that feature 88 of Connecticut’s All-American stars representing 17 different intercollegiate sports. A tour of the various sections of the Husky Heritage Sports Museum is a walk down memory lane for long-time followers of Connecticut athletics. For fans just becoming acquainted with UConn’s tradition of excellence, the various themes and areas of the museum, when woven together, narrate a complete and compelling sport-by-sport story line. The growth and development of Connecticut athletics is traced via text, photographs and select artifacts from its humble beginnings in the 1890s to its present day ranking among the elite major college athletic programs in the nation. Included among the “must see” memorabilia in the Husky Heritage Sports Museum main concourse are the 1981 and 2000 NCAA National Championship Men’s Soccer trophies; the 1981 and 1985 NCAA National Championship Women’s Field Hockey

trophies; the 1950s era baseball gloves belonging to Connecticut’s three Dropo brothersincluding Walt Dropo’s first baseman’s mitt when he was the American League Rookie of the Year with the Boston Red Sox in 1950; the 1935 Ramnapping Trophy, awarded annually to the winner of the Connecticut-Rhode Island football game; a 1931 football signed by the entire Connecticut squad; team photos of Connecticut’s first men’s (1901) and women’s (1902) basketball squads; and the Waterford Crystal NCAA National Championship trophies won by UConn Women’s Basketball (1995, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2009, 2010) and UConn Men’s Basketball (1999, 2004, 2011). The pinnacle achievement of UConn’s nine NCAA National Championships in both men’s and women’s basketball is preserved and promoted in a unique circular sanctuary–the Connecticut Basketball Rotunda, a gift of Herb and Marcia Dunn. Championship trophies and related artifacts that chronicle UConn’s men’s and women’s national titles are prominently featured in the rotunda, as are life-size cutouts of Husky All-American stars Ray Allen and Rebecca Lobo. Celebratory paintings of head coaches Jim Calhoun and Geno Auriemma are on display along with a one-of-a-kind watercolor team photo of the 25-member UConn Men’s Basketball All-Century team. Also within the Husky Heritage Sports Museum experience is a video wall featuring a 65-inch high definition television. Visitors can view numerous historical moments in UConn history as captured on a variety of highlight films and documentaries. Each display case of memorabilia and every historical photograph located within the walls of the J. Robert Donnelly Husky Heritage Sports Museum describe a portion of a truly remarkable story. That story of the teams, the coaches, and student-athletes who have been part of the rich history that constitutes the University of Connecticut athletic experience is now being told on a daily basis at UConn’s Husky Heritage Sports Museum. In addition, there is a display on the history of football at UConn – from its starts in 1897, to its time in Division I-AA and now as a team that has played in a Bowl Championship Series game. The J. Robert Donnelly Husky Heritage Sports Museum is open free of charge to the general public during regular business hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) of the UConn Alumni Center. Since the Husky Heritage Sports Museum opened in January of 2002, several important artifacts have been donated from UConn loyalists to help expand the scope of the Connecticut Athletics storyline. The University of Connecticut Division of Athletics continues to seek additional memorabilia/artifacts to help expand the story of the UConn Huskies. Anyone wishing to donate specific Connecticut Athletics items to the J. Robert Donnelly Husky Heritage Sports Museum should contact: Tim Tolokan, Phone: (860) 486-9097, e-mail: tim. tolokan@uconn.edu.
