Connecticut Lacrosse

George J. Sherman-Family Sports Complex The University of Connecticut lacrosse program plays its home games at the George J. Sherman Family-Sports Complex, a $3.7 million athletic facility located adjacent to Harry A. Gampel Pavilion in the heart of UConn’s main campus in Storrs. The 2007 season marked the first year that the Huskies played all their games on the turf, after years of splitting time at the grass field in Joseph J. Morrone Stadium. A financial gift of more than $650,000 to UConn’s Athletic Development Fund by Lottie K. Sherman of West Hartford helped provide the necessary funding for the project. The entire complex bears the name of Lottie K. Sherman’s husband, George J. Sherman. Opened during the 1995-96 academic year, the George J. Sherman Family Sports Complex features a new Astroturf 12 field and watering system that was installed during the summer of 2008. The new surface gives UConn lacrosse and field hockey programs one of the finest on-campus collegiate facilities in the nation. The complex also includes an eight-lane, 400-meter all-weather track surface, as well as seating for 2,000 fans, full-field lighting to permit night games, a press box and a scoreboard with electronic message capabilities. Before the start of the 2010 season the lacrosse locker room in the Hugh S. Greer Field House was renovated, giving each student-athlete their own locker with enclosed storage spaces.

Hugh S. Greer Mark R . Shenkmen & Field House Training Center Weight Room Thanks to alumnus Mark R. Shenkman, the University of Connecticut has joined the ranks of major universities nationwide with an indoor training facility that is utilized by all the varsity sport teams and also by recreational services. The 85,000 square foot Mark R. Shenkman Training Center is one of the most modern facilities of its kind in the country. Featuring a 120-yard long state-of-the-art FieldTurf playing surface, an 18,000 square foot strength and conditioning area and state-of-the-art video capabilities, the indoor training center provides all the varsity teams with the most technologically advanced training equipment. The UConn lacrosse team has the use of two different weight rooms in Gampel Pavilion along with the Field House Weight Room. All of the facilities feature custom made multi-use racks with platforms, dumbbell racks, cable machines and various Cybex Machines.


HEADStrong Foundation

The Huskies were one of 15 teams to raise $42,000 in the 2nd Annual Nick Colleluori Women’s Lacrosse Classic which took place at Hofstra University on September 25, 2010. The tournament helps bring awareness to the HEADStrong Foundation which is committed to finding a cure for all blood cancers and supporting those who are affected by the disease. The foundation is dedicated to its founder Nicholas Colleluori and was started in 2005, with the foundation’s primary color of lime green being used to represent non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Goal Line Program

The UConn lacrosse team visited a group of East Hartford Middle School female students in November, spending the day playing games, dancing and beat boxing. Members of the lacrosse team also talked with students about the importance of having an active and healtyh lifestyle. The Goal Line program was made possible by the SBM Charitable Foundation, an organization created to benefit at-risk youth by connecting them with student-athlete mentors.

Huskies In The Community Husky Reach

The University of Connecticut lacrosse team strives to consistently make a positive impact off the field and outside of the classroom, contributing to several community organizations. Following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. in December 2012, UConn spent a day in January with the youth lacrosse programs. Different community service initiatives that the Huskies participate in throughout the year include Nutmeg Big Brothers-Big Sisters, teaching children around Connecticut about lacrosse and volunteering for Husky Sport, a program to promote physical fitness and good nutrition. As part of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), the lacrosse team also sponsors a variety of collection drives for food, toys and coats to support charities in the local area.

U NIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT 2014 UConn Lacrosse

Alumni Reflections Kacie Lewis - 2013 “I feel lucky to of had the opportunity to be a part of the UConn women’s lacrosse team and see the transformation of the program over the past four years. There’s not much we haven’t been through as a team. Katie really instilled a sense of family into the team, and that’s something that has continued each year. I take a lot of pride in looking back at the 2013 season and seeing everything we overcame and accomplished, and I’m looking forward to seeing the continuing success of the program in the future.”

Lauren Gunning - 2010

“During my time in Storrs, I developed an enormous sense of pride for the sc hool, athletic department, and lacrosse program. The unique experience of being a student athlete allowed me to compete at the highest level, build long lasting relationships and get a great education. The emphasis on discipline, effort, and teamwork that was instilled in me during my time in Storrs continues to be extremely important to me even after graduation. I am truly grateful to be a part of the UConn lacrosse family which has allowed me to surround myself with great teammates, coaches and friends.”

Ashley Mitchelides - 2010 “Attending UConn and being a member of the women’s lacrosse team was truly an opportunity that I will always be grateful for. I am thankful for all the experiences I had over the years and have met some truly amazing people. Reflecting on my time at UConn, it is a special and rewarding group to be a part of; one that has left an imprint on me as I move onto the next phase of life. Through thick and thin, my experience was one of constant growth and has prepared me for all to come. The perspective I have now, leaves me even more appreciative of those who supported, encouraged and believed in me at UConn. From teammates and coaches to classmates and friends, being a Husky is something I will always cherish!”

Whitney Michele - 2009 “Competing against some of the top teams in the nation, building enduring friendships, being challenged to handle adversity and having the opportunity to be a part of the BIG EAST conference all contributed to making my experience at Connecticut exciting and unforgettable. I was fortunate to learn from and play under head coach Angela McMahon for my last year at UConn. Coach McMahon took over the team and instilled expectations of: conditioning, discipline, dedication, and hard work. I truly believe she will build this program into a top 20 team in a few years.”

Leah Giffin - 2008 “My experience as an athlete at UConn gave me a sense of purpose and a sense of place in Storrs. You feel a sense of pride when you put on that blue and white jersey which represents so much more than yourself. Being a part of the UConn lacrosse family sculpted me into the person I am today. Although I had my ups and downs throughout my lacrosse career, I knew there were always 24 other people who understood me. They know what you have been through and they stand by your side. I now have the opportunity to coach and I strive to get my players to understand the true meaning of the word ‘team.’ I try and teach them what I have learned through my own experiences, that your jersey is much more than a shirt, that the people you play with are much more than teammates, that the hour long battles are much more than games.”

The BIG EAST has gone through membership changes since its birth and continues to make strides in improving the quality and depth of the storied league. This year Temple and Marquette join the BIG EAST in women’s lacrosse, while Syracuse, Notre Dame and Loyola (Md.) leave the conference to play elsewhere. The BIG EAST Conference has been always been driven by lofty goals. The outstanding performances of the student-athletes at BIG EAST schools are evidence of the league’s proud tradition of success. The league has always been able to boast that many of its best students are also its best athletes. The 2012-13 year was no different. In the athletic arena, BIG EAST student-athletes again enjoyed success on the national stage. It was a sweep for the BIG EAST in basketball last season, as the UConn women captured their eighth NCAA Championship, while on the men’s side, Louisville defeated Michigan 82-76 to win its third ever NCAA Championship. In women’s field hockey, UConn won its third national championship, defeating Duke 2-0 this past fall, while there were five BIG EAST teams, Syracuse, UConn, Loyola (Md.), Georgetown and Notre Dame, to qualify for the 2013 NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Tournament. The Orange made it to the semifinals, where they fell to Maryland 11-10. Last spring both UConn and Louisville qualified for the 2013 NCAA Tournament in men’s baseball. The Huskies were eliminated in the Regionals stage, while the Cardinals advanced to the Super Regionals, and eventually lost to Vanderbilt. The BIG EAST has its headquarters in New York where the conference administers to more than 5,500 student-athletes.

Counseling Program for Intercollegiate Athletes

Department of Sports Medicine

The University of Connecticut is committed to each of its student-athletes as a total person. Participation in athletics is important, but it represents only one aspect of an individual’s college experience. At the University of Connecticut, academic achievement is a prime concern. Impressively, for the past four years, the Connecticut student-athlete academic retention rate has been 99.0 percent. The University’s commitment to the student-athlete is a dual one. Athletic participation is not viewed as an obstacle to the attainment of one’s educational goals, rather it is seen as a complimentary activity. Each supports the other. Athletic excellence is stressed, but academic achievement is never compromised - indeed, it is given the utmost priority. The University realizes that student-athletes, due to their academic involvement, are required to commit a large percentage of their time to University sponsored athletic activities. For this reason, the University recognizes the need for a support program for intercollegiate athletes. The Counseling Program for Intercollegiate Athletes (CPIA) assists the athletes in achieving their academic goals. The CPIA staff serves as liaison to the academic faculty and to the Division of Athletics. CPIA was established in 1986 to provide comprehensive academic support to all UConn student-athletes. CPIA’s staff includes a director, eight full-time counselors, three graduate assistants and a large complement of tutors. The program boasts its own Macintosh/IBM writing lab with access to the Internet as well as reference tools of the Homer Babbidge Library. Writing tutors are available each weeknight in the CPIA office. CPIA also provides laptop computers for team use during travel to away games. Individual tutors in all subjects are readily available to student-athletes upon request. A counselor is assigned to work with each intercollegiate team, and working directly with the UConn lacrosse program is Ingrid Hohmann. Hohmann monitors all aspects of each athlete’s academic life, including class schedule, arranging for tutors and progress toward a degree. The goal for each Husky student-athlete is to earn a degree so they can become a success in whatever field they choose.

The Department of Sports Medicine in the University of Connecticut Division of Athletics works as an integrated multidisciplinary team whose purpose is to provide the optimal, safe environment for each of UConn’s intercollegiate student-athletes to train and participate in their sport. The staff takes great pride in the individual attention paid to each student-athlete. The Sports Medicine staff is devoted to preventing injury, rapidly diagnosing and treating injury, and maximizing athletic performance. The disciplines of athletic training, strength and conditioning, sports medicine, orthopaedic sports medicine, optometry, nutrition, exercise physiology, and psychology work in concert to provide comprehensive care for each student-athlete. The Sports Medicine team is spearheaded by UConn Director of Sports Medicine Jeffrey Anderson, MD, and UConn Team Physician Thomas Trojian, MD. The Orthopaedic Sports Medicine specialists for the team include Edward Collins, MD, in Willimantic and Michael Joyce, MD, of the Orthopaedic Sports Specialists in Glastonbury; Barry Messinger, MD, of Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Surgery in Manchester; and Robert Arciero, MD, and Kevin Shea, MD, of the University of Connecticut Health Center Department of Orthopaedics in Farmington. The Department of Sports Medicine works intimately with the Departments of Kinesiology and Nutritional Sciences on the University of Connecticut campus. This working relationship affords the student-athletes with the input of several nationally recognized exercise scientists. This cooperation also keeps the sports medicine staff at the cutting edge of developments in the fields of human performance and sports nutrition. Members of the UConn sports medicine staff are actively engaged in research that directly benefits the care of each student-athlete.

Director of Athletics

Warde Manuel W

arde J. Manuel, who has had a distinguished career in intercollegiate athletics that ranges from being a student-athlete to a director of athletics, became the Director of Athletics in March of 2011. Manuel, a 1990 graduate of the University of Michigan where he played both football and track and field, has most recently been the Director of Athletics at the University at Buffalo for six years. His first academic year of 2012-13 was a highly successful one for UConn teams, highlighted by the women’s basketball team winning the NCAA Championship. In addition, UConn teams from men’s soccer, field hockey and baseball all took part in NCAA tournament play while the women’s diving and men’s and women’s track and field programs were all represented in NCAA individual championships. Manuel also directed UConn’s acceptance into membership of Hockey East, the nation’s premier men’s ice hockey conference, as the Huskies begin play in the league in 2014-15. Ground was broken for the UConn Basketball Development Center in the spring of 2013 and the facility will open in 2014 to service both the Huskies’ men’s and women’s championship basketball teams. Manuel oversaw a coaching transition in men’s basketball with the retirement of Hall of Fame coach Jim Calhoun and the hiring of former Husky student-athlete, NBA player and UConn assistant coach Kevin Ollie. Manuel also hired new head coaches for the UConn men’s and women’s ice hockey programs. The UConn Division of Athletics once again had an outstanding rate performance in the NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) in 2013 as the men’s basketball team posted a 947 as Manuel has helped develop a comprehensive academic plan for all UConn programs. Each Husky team met the NCAA minimum requirement while most teams, a total of 20, scored 970 or better. In June of 2013, Manuel was one of 11 Division I ADs, who were named to Athletic Director Advisory Group to the NCAA leadership. The membership of this advisory group will meet periodically with NCAA leadership to provide feedback and perspective on issues that affect NCAA Division I members.

Manuel has already become a key leader in the American Athletic Conference and has been named a member of the league’s Finance Committee. Manuel led a 20-sport program at Buffalo, an institution that is a member of the prestigious American Association of Universities. Buffalo enjoyed an unparalleled period of success during his time there from an athletic, academic and community service perspective. From an academic standpoint, teams at Buffalo enjoyed incredible academic success. When Manuel arrived at UB, there were four programs - football, men’s basketball, wrestling, and baseball - that fell far below the NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) cut score of 925. With a focused academic plan, all four teams posted a four-year APR rate above the cut score and at the end of 2009-10, 10 of UB’s 20 sports had scores of 975 or above. Buffalo enjoyed great on-field success during Manuel’s time as the football team participated in the 2009 International Bowl and the men’s basketball team made postseason appearances in three of the past seven years. Olympic sports also thrived under Manuel’s leadership with accomplishments such as three-straight Dad Vail Regatta titles by the rowing team, six wrestlers earning spots at the 2011 NCAA Championship and the women’s tennis team making an appearance in the 2008 NCAA tournament. The sports of baseball and softball won a record number of games during his tenure and student-athletes earned All-American and allconference honors at record rates. Manuel was honored by Sports Business Journal as a 2008 national 40-Under-40 honoree after receiving the same honor from Business First of Buffalo in Fall of 2007. Manuel has served on a number of national and conference committees and boards. In September of 2011, he was one of only three Athletic Directors asked to serve on the Collegiate Model Rules committee, a working group of the Division I Committee on Academic Performance, charged with broad overview of the current NCAA Rules Manual. He also currently serves on the NCAA Division I Championships/ Sports Management Cabinet and served for four years as a member of the NCAA’s Academic Cabinet. During that time, he was selected as Chair of the NCAA Academic Eligibility & Compliance Transfer Ad Hoc Committee. He is a member of the Boards of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics and the D1A Athletic Directors Association. He also serves as a member of the Council of Presidents Budget & Finance Committee and served for three years as the Chair of the MidAmerican Conference Director of Athletics Finance Committee. In June of 2007, Manuel accepted the Opportunity Award by all-time tennis great Billie Jean King, as Buffalo was recognized by the Women’s Sports Foundation as one of four “standout” colleges and universities in the nation for outstanding achievement in providing equitable athletic opportunities for its female student-athletes. Prior to his time at Buffalo, he was the assistant and associate director of athletics for the University of Michigan, where he oversaw that school’s football and men’s basketball programs. In February 1998, he was named an assistant athletic director at Michigan with responsibilities for overseeing operational facets of the university’s athletic program. He was named an associate athletic director in September 2000. Born May 22, 1968, Manuel is a native of New Orleans, who was a high school All-American football player and played for the University of Michigan under its legendary coach, Bo Schembechler. Manuel earned multiple letters and started at defensive end in his sophomore year. His football career was cut short by a neck injury and he subsequently earned two letters on the Wolverines’ track and field team. After graduating from Michigan, Manuel was coordinator of the university’s Wade H. McCree, Jr., Incentive Scholars Program from June 1990 to August 1993. The program is a partnership with The President’s Council of State Universities and Detroit Public Schools that helps students prepare for higher education at public universities in Michigan. He subsequently worked briefly as an academic advisor with the Georgia Tech Athletic Association before being named assistant athletic director of academic affairs. In the course of working on a PhD in social work and psychology at Michigan, he earned a master’s degree in social work in 1993 and an MBA from Michigan’s Ross School of Business in April 2005. Manuel and his wife, Chrislan, have a daughter, Emma (18), who is entering her sophomore year at UConn, and a son, Evan (14).

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 $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 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 Brooklyn Nets, the NHL’s New York Islanders, New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils and the WNBA’s New York Liberty.

Storrs


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. The 2008 NBA Champion Boston Celtics and the 2011 Stanley Cup Champions Boston Bruins also call 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.

PROVIDENCE (51 miles) Rhode Island’s capital city shows that one of the nation’s smallest states also has plenty to offer its visitors. The multi-cultural capital city, which dates back to 1636, is the Ocean State’s centerpiece. The best known hamlet on the Rhode Island shore, the ocean town of Newport is world famous for its mansions and is a popular vacation destination for those seeking aquatic activities. Newport’s renowned music festival is also a well-attended annual event.
