BOB SHILLINGLAW HEAD COACH 36TH SEASON AT DELAWARE NORTH CAROLINA ‘74

University of Delaware head lacrosse coach Bob Shillinglaw, one of the nation’s most respected and successful coaches, will begin his 35th season as head coach of the Blue Hen men’s lacrosse program and his 38th season of college coaching overall in 2013. He leads a Blue Hen program that ranks among the nation’s best in NCAA Division I. Over the last eight seasons, the Blue Hens have posted a cumulative record of 77-57 (.583), won 10 or more games five times, captured four Colonial Athletic Association regular season and tournament titles, and advanced to the NCAA Tournament four times. The highlight came during the 2007 season when the Hens knocked off Virginia and UMBC in the first two round of the NCAA Tournament to advance to the NCAA Final Four for the first time in school history. Shillinglaw owns a career record of 281-256 (.523) at Delaware that includes 15 conference titles, including seven in the East Coast Conference, three in the North Atlantic Conference titles, a 1999 America East Conference title, and four CAA titles in 2005 (regular season), 2007, 2010, and 2011. He has led the Blue Hens to NCAA Tournament appearances in 1984, 1999, 2005, 2007, 2010, and 2011. He reached a milestone achieved by just nine other coaches in the history of the game in 2012 when he captured his 300th career victory during the Blue Hens’ season-opening 19-6 win over Detroit Mercy on Feb. 4 in Delaware Stadium. He holds the NCAA all-time, all-divisions record for most career coaching appearances with 578, breaking the record of 510 set by Jack Emmer at Cortland State, Washington & Lee, and Army from 1970 until 2005. Shillinglaw, whose overall career coaching record stands at 305-273 (.528), will enter the 2013 season ranked seventh among all active men’s college coaches for wins, including a No. 4 ranking among NCAA Division I mentors, trailing only Dom Starsia of Virginia (341), John Danowski of Duke (314), and Bill Tierney of Denver (308). He is one of just eighth coaches in NCAA history to win 250 games or more at one school, reaching the mark with a win over Saint Joseph’s in the 2009 season opener. He led the Blue Hens to their finest season in school history in 2007. The Blue Hens went 13-6 overall, captured the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament title, and advanced to the NCAA Final Four for the first time in school history. Delaware stormed past defending national champion and No. 2 seed Virginia by a 14-8 score in the first round, defeated No. 13 ranked UMBC 10-6 in the quarterfinals at Navy, and trailed eventual national champion Johns Hopkins 3-2 late in the third quarter before falling to the Blue Jays 8-3 in the national semifinals before a record crowd of 52,004 fans at Baltimore’s M&T Bank Stadium.

The Hens earned an NCAA Tournament spot opposite No. 6 ranked Duke and gave the defending national champion Blue Devils all they could handle before falling by a 15-14 margin in the first round. Shillinglaw, 59, is the winningest coach in Delaware’s 64-year lacrosse history and his past accomplishments also include coaching his 1984, 1999, 2005, 2007, 2010, and 2011 teams to NCAA Tournament appearances, including the 2007 Final Four appearance, and leading his 1979 squad to a 13-2 mark and being named United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Coach of the Year.

ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH 15TH SEASON AT DELAWARE LOYOLA (MD.) ‘97 Greg Carroll begins his 14th year as head coach Bob Shillinglaw’s top assistant with the University of Delaware men’s lacrosse staff in 2013. He was promoted to the position of associate head coach on Dec. 6, 2005 and will begin his eighth season in that role this season. Carroll, who serves as Delaware’s defensive coordinator, has played a key role in helping the Blue Hens rank among the nation’s top programs during his tenure. Delaware has captured three Colonial Athletic Association Tournament titles in the last six years and advanced to the NCAA Tournament four times in the last eighth campaigns. During his 13 years as an assistant, the Blue Hens have recorded 10 or more wins seven times. He helped guide the Blue Hens to the finest season in school history in 2007. The Blue Hens went 13-6 overall, captured the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament title, and advanced to the NCAA Final Four for the first time in school history. Delaware stormed past defending national champion and No. 2 seed Virginia by a 14-8 score in the first round, defeated No. 13 ranked UMBC 10-6 in the quarterfinals at Navy, and trailed eventual national champion Johns Hopkins 3-2 late in the third quarter before falling to the Blue Jays 8-3 in the national semifinals before a record crowd of 52,004 fans at Baltimore’s M&T Bank Stadium. The Blue Hens put together back-to-back memorable seasons in 2010-11, rallying late in the season to capture the CAA Tournament title and advancing to the NCAA Tournament where they dropped onegoal decisions to nationally-ranked Atlantic Coast Conference teams each year. In 2011, Delaware posted a record of 11-7, capturing the CAA Tournament title with a pair of road playoff wins over No. 8 Hofstra (10-9) in the semifinals and over No. 19 Massachusetts (9-7) in the title game. The Blue Hens drew defending national champion and No. 6 ranked Duke in the first round of the NCAA Tournament and gave the Blue Devils all they could handle before a comeback fell just short in a 15-14 setback in Durham, N.C. The Hens were ranked No. 14 in the final USILA regular season poll. During the 2010 campaign, Delaware won its final three regular season games to earn a spot in the CAA Tournament and proceeded to defeat No. 12 Drexel 10-6 in the semifinals and top-seed Towson 12-9 in the championship game. The win vaulted the Blue Hens into the NCAA Tournament where Delaware gave No. 4 seed North Carolina all it could handle before falling 14-13 in a class back-and-forth battle with the Tar Heels. The Hens, led by CAA Player of the Year and Tewaaraton Award finalist Curtis Dickson, finished with a No. 12 final USILA national ranking. Carroll led Delaware to an 11-6 mark in 2005 when the Blue Hens captured the Colonial Athletic Association regular season crown and advanced to the CAA Tournament championship game before falling to Towson 9-8 in the title game. The Blue Hens were one of only four teams in NCAA Division I men’s lacrosse

to win at least 10 games each of those four seasons (2004-07). Despite the championship game setback, the nationally-ranked Blue Hens earned an at-large berth into the NCAA Tournament and traveled to No. 5 seed Navy where they suffered a hard-fought 9-7 setback. Delaware posted a 10-6 mark in 2000 when the Blue Hens tied for the America East regular season title and advanced to the tournament championship game. In 2004, the Hens posted a mark of 10-6 and fell to Villanova in the Colonial Athletic Association semifinals. In 2006, the Hens went 12-5 and again advanced to the CAA title game before falling to No. 2 ranked Hofstra. During the 2008 season, the Hens went 9-7 and advanced to the CAA semifinals. A native of Long Island, NY, Carroll, 37, was a standout player at Harborfields High School and moved on to a four-year career at Loyola under then head coach Dave Cottle. While with the Greyhounds, Carroll played four varsity seasons, appearing in 40 career games and leading nationally-rand Loyola to four straight NCAA Tournament appearances. After finishing his playing career in 1997, Carroll began his coaching career in 1998 at Severn Prep High School in Severna Park, Md. while finishing his undergraduate studies at Loyola. He moved on to the college ranks where he served as an assistant coach at NCAA Division III Washington & Lee College in Lexington, Va. While at Washington & Lee in 1999, he helped lead the Generals to a record of 13-2 and a berth in the NCAA quarterfinals.

UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE MEN’S LACROSSE

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.

A new 40 x 34-foot scoreboard, including a 40 x 16 video screen, was installed prior to the 2008 football season and is located at the North end of Delaware Stadium. Live video play-by-play action, replays, and features are shown throughout football, men’s lacrosse, and women’s lacrosse games.

This state-of-the-art stadium was dedicated on September 18, 1998. Its construction was made possible, in part, by the generous donation of one UD alumnus: Fred P. Rullo Jr., AS ‘63, a former baseball and football letterwinner, and his wife, Madeleine. Rullo Stadium features an artificial turf surface (Astro Turf-12 surface installed in 2008) covering 122,928 square feet (2.82 acres) permits a full-sized game field for all applicable sports as well as two side-by-side practice areas running across the 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 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.”
