Brock, a native of Newark and a former high school standout at Newark High School, replaces Joe Catania, who served as McFarlane’s top assistant during the 2012-13 season. Brock spent the last three seasons as an assistant coach at North Carolina State after assisting at the Tatnall School in Wilmington, Del. for three seasons. While at North Carolina State, Brock was a part of the staff that produced five NCAA Championship team berths, 14 All-American citations, nine Atlantic Coast Conference individual champions, and an ACC cross country team title. “I am delighted to welcome Tim back to his alma mater,” said McFarlane, who led the Blue Hens to a third place finish at the Colonial Athletic Association cross country championships in 2012 and a runner-up finish at the CAA Outdoor Championships this past May. “Tim will be working closely with our cross country and distance runners and will assist with all areas of recruitment. I am confident that he will do an outstanding job assisting our teams to future success.” During his time at Tatnall, Brock helped coach the girls and boys teams to a combined 10 state titles in cross country and track and field. Additionally, the girls cross country program achieved national prominence with three consecutive appearances at the NXN National Championships, including a third place finish in 2008. “I am so excited for the opportunity to return to my alma mater and to move back to my home state of Delaware,” said Brock. “The University of Delaware is a top school nationally and I can’t wait to coach and recruit high quality student-athletes as we look to contend with the best. I would like to thank those who have mentored me along the way. The learning experiences gained from Mike Mooney, Jim Fischer, Patrick Castagno, and Rollie Geiger have helped make this amazing position possible. I am so thankful for the confidence that Coach McFarlane has shown in me as we look to continued success.” While at Delaware, Brock earned 10 letters for head coach Jim Fischer, including four in cross country and three each in indoor and outdoor track & field as a distance runner. He competed in two CAA cross country championships, competed in the Penn Relays, was captain for three seasons, and was presented with the UD Alumni Association W.

UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE CROSS COUNTRY / TRACK & FIELD

With nearly three decades of success athletically and academically, the Colonial Athletic Association has built a reputation as one of the nation’s top collegiate conferences. The CAA encompasses many of the nation’s largest metropolitan areas with a geographic footprint that stretches from Boston to Charleston, S.C. The conference has produced 16 national team champions in five different sports, 33 individual national champions, 13 national players of the year, 12 national coaches of the year and 13 Honda Award winners. Just as impressive, however, are the honors accumulated away from competition, which include five Rhodes Scholars and 23 NCAA post-graduate scholars. In 2012-13, more than 1,900 of the league’s 4,000 student-athletes received the Commissioner’s Academic Award after posting at least a 3.2 grade point average while lettering in a varsity sport. The conference had 23 teams in 15 different sports receive NCAA Public Recognition Awards based on the latest Academic Progress Report released in 2013. The landscape of the conference stretches along the majority of the East Coast, and includes several of the nation’s top media markets – New York (1), Philadelphia (4), Boston (7), Washington, D.C. (9) and Baltimore (25). The number of television homes in the CAA market exceeds 20 million. The CAA conducts championships in 22 sports. Male athletes compete for championships in baseball, basketball, cross counCAA Commissioner try, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis Tom Yeager and track & field. Female athletes battle for conference titles in basketball, cross country, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and volleyball. In 2012-13, 27 teams earned NCAA Tournament berths and 43 student-athletes received All-America honors in 14 different sports. The conference has made its presence known nationally in men’s basketball with two teams – George Mason (2006) and VCU (2011) – advancing to the NCAA Final Four over the past seven years. CAA teams have combined to win 41 games in postseason play since 2006, including 14 victories in the NCAA Tournament. The CAA has posted at least one NCAA Tournament win in six of the past eight years, including the last four in a row. The conference has seen five or more teams reach postseason play in four of the last five seasons. In women’s basketball, 2013 CAA champion Delaware defeated West Virginia and North Carolina to become the 12th CAA team to reach the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. Behind the play of Honda Award winner Elena Delle Donne, the Blue Hens finished the season ranked #13 in the final USA Today Coaches Top 25 poll. Drexel captured the WNIT championship with a 46-43 victory over Utah and James Madison reached the quarterfinals of the WNIT. CAA teams have gone 20-9 in postseason play over the past two years. The conference also excels in many other sports. CAA squads have combined to win 10 field hockey national titles since the championship began in 1981. Three men’s soccer teams earned NCAA Tournament berths last season and each current member of the conference has reached the NCAA Tournament since 2006. In softball, Hofstra reached the NCAA Super Regionals in 2012 and the CAA placed two teams (Hofstra and James Madison) in the NCAA’s for the first time last season. At least two women’s soccer teams have reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament three times in the past six seasons. William & Mary’s men’s cross country squad has made the NCAA Championship in 12 of the past 14 years and the women’s team had two runners (Elaina Balouris and Emily Stites) earn All-America honors in 2012. Delaware and Towson have each reached the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship. The CAA sent three teams to the NCAA Baseball Championship in 2013 and has had at least 11 players selected in nine of the last 11 Major League Baseball drafts. The conference also had individuals earn All-America honors in women’s lacrosse, track and field and swimming & diving last season and had players nationally ranked in tennis and golf. CAA member institutions are committed to excellence in the classroom. The Colonial Academic Alliance was created in 2002 by the league’s presidents with a goal of expanding their partnership to all aspects of university education and life outside of intercollegiate athletics. Among the programs that have been established are an undergraduate research conference, coordination of study abroad programs, visiting faculty programs and a recent partnership with NBC Learn to provide educational videos to over 8,500 public schools across the United States. CAA schools are also very active in community service projects. The CAA Blood Challenge, which is held each fall, has raised more than 36,000 units of blood over the past 11 years. The first-ever CAA Food Drive Challenge last winter resulted in over 9,500 pounds of donated food. Commissioner Thomas E. Yeager has

Tim McDonnell guided the CAA since its inception. The conference traces its roots back to 1983 when two of its current members- James Madison University and the College of William and Mary - were aligned with East Carolina University, George Mason University, the United States Naval Academy and the University of Richmond as a basketball league (ECAC South). During the next two years, the league added 11 sports, acquired two new members (the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and American University) and decided to form a new conference. The transformation from ECAC South to CAA took place on June 6, 1985. Old Dominion University joined the CAA in 1991 and was followed by Virginia Commonwealth University in 1995. The conference added the University of Delaware, Drexel University, Hofstra University and Towson University in 2001. Georgia State University and Northeastern University became members of the conference in 2005 and the College of Charleston began its first year as a CAA member on July 1, 2013. Elon University will join the conference beginning in 2014-15.

UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE CROSS COUNTRY / TRACK & FIELD

A leader in international education, UD offered the first study-abroad program in the world in 1923, and celebrates its 90th anniversary of study abroad in 2013. UD ranks third nationally among public doctoral institutions in studyabroad participation. More than one of every three UD undergraduate students (34.7%) studies overseas; programs are offered in nearly 50 countries. In 2010, the Education Advisory Board’s University Leadership Council cited UD’s study-abroad program as a model.

UD’s freshman retention rate, 92 percent, ranks in the 97th percentile among universities nationwide. At 77 percent, UD’s six-year graduation rate is more than 21 percentage points higher than the national average. UD’s four-year graduation rate, 61.8 percent, is nearly double the national average. UD’s Latino and African American students also graduate in numbers far higher than the U.S. average— nearly 23 percentage points higher and 18 points higher, respectively.

UD’s exceptional faculty includes internationally known authors, scientists and artists, among them a Nobel laureate, Guggenheim and Fulbright fellows, members of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering and American Association for the Advancement of Science.

UD has graduated 12 Rhodes scholars since the celebrated program began in 1904. Our most recent Rhodes scholar—2011 graduate Matthew Watters—is now studying global health science at Oxford. UD also produces numerous Marshall and Truman scholars, and has been named a Truman Scholarship Honor Institution for its outstanding record of Truman scholars selected.

Many of UD’s doctoral programs were ranked among the best in the U.S. in a recent National Research Council survey that examined criteria such as student financial support, average time to degree completion, student career plans and diversity of the academic environment. UD graduate programs in physical therapy, engineering, education, business, city management, mathematics and public affairs have been recognized in recent Best Graduate Schools guides published by U.S. News Media Group.

A citation in the Princeton Review once referred to the UD campus as “absolutely the most gorgeous anywhere,” and a 2007 Washington Post story noted, “with its elegant, elongated Green, [UD] is a stunning landscape of Georgian Colonial red-brick, white-columned architecture to rival anything conceived by Thomas Jefferson.”

Previously known as Delaware Mini-Stadium, the facility was renamed the Stuart and Suzanne Grant Stadium earlier this year in recognition of the $1.5 million leadership donation from UD Trustee Stuart Grant and his wife, Suzanne. This history-making gift was the largest single donation made by an individual or couple in support of a UD Athletics facility project. The track events will be held on a brand new eight-lane, high performance, all-weather track surface. The 400-meter Beynon Sports blue embedded track surface was installed during the fall. Improvements were also made to the long jump and high jump areas.
