WHY BLUE HENS? University of Delaware's athletic teams have one of the most unique nicknames in all of college athletics – "The Fightin' Blue Hens." It is a name they carry with pride that stretches back over 200 years of history of the state of Delaware. The Blue Hen nickname has been continuously used by all University of Delaware intercollegiate teams since 1911. On December 9, 1775, the Continental Congress resolved that a military battalion was to be raised from the lower three counties along the Delaware River. Thus was born the Delaware Regiment, a group of eight companies representing New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties. The second company was composed of men from Kent County and was under the command of Captain John Caldwell, an avid fan and owner of gamecocks. The militia often amused itself by staging cock fights with these birds which were of a breed known as the Kent County Blue Hen, having some blue plumage. The renown of these chickens spread rapidly during that time when cock fighting was a popular form of amusement, and the "Blue Hens' Chickens" quickly developed a reputation for ferocity and fighting success. Captain Caldwell's company likewise acquired a considerable reputation for its own fighting prowess in engagements with the British at Long Island, White Plains, Trenton, and Princeton, and was soon known as "the Blue Hen Chicken" company. One version of the story states that Caldwell's company rushed into battle screaming "We're sons of the Blue Hen and we're game to the end!" Captain Caldwell's company was part of Col. John Haslet's first Delaware regiment that formed near the outset of the Revolution in January, 1776, and in August, 1781, remnants of the regiment were still battling at Eutaw Springs, SC. Although often referred to as "The Fighting Delawares," Haslet's regiment also won the sobriquet, "The Blue Hen Chickens," which has become the nickname for all Delawareans. The name was formally adopted by the Delaware General Assembly in April, 1939 when the "Blue Hen Chicken" was named the official state bird. UD’s College of Agricultural Sciences maintains a breeding group of the Blue Hen Chicken on its campus farm.

2010 SEASON PREVIEW In her final season at the helm on the Hens, sixth-year women’s lacrosse head coach Kim Ciarrocca, joined by her three assistant coaches Liz Martin, Jaime Dardine and Reid Watson, are excited to get the 2010 campaign under way.

Sophomores Steph Allen, Rachel Molina and Quinn Daly return for the Hens, as do juniors Lindsey Coon, Ali Libertini, Holly Burman and Julianna Jeffers as the veterans of the midfield. Allen, who contributed 22 goals last season, is healthy and will make an impression on Delaware’s

“I’m not a real nervous person on the sidelines, ever,” said Ciarrocca. “I’ve never been that way, but this [opening] game might be a little nerve-racking for me. I think my last home game may be more so – hoping that it’s the CAA Championships that we’re hosting.”

offense. “Steph was a walk-on last year and turned out to be one of our highest scorers, she’ll get some playing time,” highlighted Ciarrocca. Molina and Daly saw spotted playing time in 2009. “Rachel is a middie-defender,” said Ciarrocca. She’s

The Blue Hens, who finished second in the Colonial Athletic Association a year ago, were picked third in the league’s preseason poll announced Jan. 27. This season Delaware, who has traveled to the CAA Tournament for three consecutive years, looks to secure the one finish in which they have fallen just short of, first place. Delaware fell to the preseason favorite Towson University, 8-7, in the 2009 title game to place second. The Hens finished third in 2007 and fourth in 2008 under Ciarrocca.

going to see a lot of time this year, and Quinn will also see significantly more action.” “Lindsay is returning from an injury and will start for us. She’s our center,” stated Ciarrocca. “And we’ll be looking for big things out of Ali, in many ways she’s going to run the offense for us.” Burman and Jeffers each contributed nine goals in the 2009 season, while playing in a combined 31 games. Burman, who made 16 starts, tallied 12 points, 22 ground balls, 10 caused turnovers and won 18

“I think that being picked third is fair considering we lost our goalie and our whole starting defense with one exception, Jennifer Bradway,” said Ciarrocca. “We lost seven starters and that will hurt a little. I’ve been picked fifth, sixth, seventh, and we’ve always made it.

“Last year we fell a little short of our goals but we know what our goals are. We have three great seniors this year who have done a great job with this team.”

as a starter for us.” Despite having switched around the game plan to accommodate a young defense, Ciarrocca will stick

Midfielder Emily Schaknowski (pictured below), and attackmen Morgan Marino and Courtney Aburn will lead the Hens not only as seniors, but as the squad’s trio of captains.

to the same motto. “We’re going to push the ball on attack and try to make some things happen,” she said. “On defense we’re going to come out and pressure the ball a little more. Unlike my defense last year that

Schaknowski, one of the top offensive threats in the CAA, has scored 67 goals and dished out 57 assists in 51 career games. A premiere player at the UD midfield, the Wading River, N.Y. native was named to the CAA Second Team and selected as a CAA All-Tournament Team member after recording 20 goals and 13 assists to lead the Hens for the second-straight year. She also tallied 24 draw controls last season.

was a great settled defense, this team has a little bit more speed. I feel like this group of defenders has a lot of speed and they’re working very well together.” After earning a starting spot in the fourth game last year, Bradway is the only returning starter on defense and has been selected as a defensive captain for game-day.

“Emily is a super-speed kid in the midfield. We’re going to try to keep her on attack as much as we can and use her on fast break-aways,” said Ciarrocca. “She should have an explosive year. She’s so quick and dominant that it’s hard to stop her. She’s just too fast.”

“She’ll help out tremendously and will run the defense back there for me,” praised Ciarrocca. Following the graduation of four-year starter, Jessica Cerveny, at the goalkeeper position, junior Makenzie Worthington, will fill her shoes.

Named to the CAA Honor Roll and the IWLCA National Academic Team, Marino is a two-year letterwinner who will contribute on the front-line for UD. As will Aburn.

“Makenzie has paid her dues,” said Ciarrocca. “She sat for two years and didn’t see much playing time because Jess had a remarkable career for us. She’s looking forward to the challenge, and she’s ready. There’s

Aburn, a CAA Honor Roll student as well, sits second on Delaware’s career draw control list with 87, and has contributed 70 goals and 27 assists during her tenure. The Jarrettsville, Md. native tallied 15 goals and 11 assists in 2009 and won 24 draw controls.

no doubt, she’s ready.” A crew of forwards will help the efforts of Schaknowski. A redshirt junior, Nicole Flego, is returning from a slew of injuries but looks to contribute for the Blue and Gold.

After losing such a core group of defenders, Ciarrocca pressures her midfield unit with high praise. “Our midfield is our strength right now,” she said. “We have a number of freshmen who will see a good lot of playing time. They’ll bring a lot of speed to our game.” Morgan

Leonard, and Brittany Griel should expect minutes.

“Abby and Blair will see some playing time on attack. Abby has a nice lefty with a phenomenal shot,” A part-time starter in 2009, Drost was the Hens’ sixth-highest scorer a year ago. Drost recorded 16 points on 12 goals and four assists, while starting 10 of 18 games in which she played. Confident in her upperclassmen and newcomers, Ciarrocca eagerly awaits game-day and is looking forward to the challenging season ahead. “We have 32 kids and feel we have 20 field players who are going to contribute every game – it’s a

Five of Ciarrocca's players were honored with All-CAA accolades, which marked the third straight year Delaware had at least five players honored. Two were named to the All-CAA First Team, two to the second team and one to the All-Rookie Team. Ciarrocca's five-year record at Delaware now stands at 45-40, ranking her third on the UD all-time women's lacrosse coaching win list.

February 25, 2009 • Newark, Del.

March 9, 2009 • Baltimore, Md.

Junior attack Nicole Flego scored the last two goals of the game in a late Blue Hen rally, but the University of Delaware women’s lacrosse team fell to Saint Joseph’s 10-8 in its season opener at Rullo Stadium. The Hawks snapped a Delaware nine-game non-league home win streak handing the Blue Hens their first nonleague loss since Apr. 19, 2006 when they fell to Johns Hopkins. Delaware was led by sophomore attack Corinne Drost, sophomore midfielder Brittany Davis and Flego, who tallied two goals apiece. The Hens also got goals from their leading scorer in 2008, Emily Schaknowski and sophomore midfielder Julianna Jeffers. Head coach Kim Ciarrocca used both senior Jessica Cerveny and sophomore Makenzie Worthington in goal, with Worthington picking up the loss. Cerveny made the start in the Blue Hen goal and allowed seven goals in 45:26 while making five saves. Worthington played 14:34, all in the second half, and gave up three goals to go with four stops. Saint Joseph’s (2-1) was led by freshman attack Jen Peters, who had four goals (seven on the season), three ground balls and one caused turnover. Senior attack Helene Tursi tallied two goals and an assist, and Jenna Martino posted one goal and two asissts. Six different Hawks scored on the day, and they had five assists to just two by UD. The Hawks jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first six minutes of action on unassisted goals by Abby Reninger and Jessica Westlake. Westlake harassed the goalkeeper Cerveny until she eventually coughed up the ball in front of the net and Westlaker put it in at 24:19 to give the Hawks a 2-0 advantage. After a Delaware timeout, Drost scored Delaware’s first goal of the year at 18:23 off an assist from sophomore midfiedler Ali Libertini to cut SJU’s lead to 2-1. SJU’s Peters would up the lead to two again with a goal at 15:34, but UD’s Davis and Jeffers scored back-to-back goals at 9:07 and 6:13 to tie the score at three. Just when it looked like the teams would be tied going into the intermission, Peters struck again with just two seconds left in the half to give SJU a 4-3 lead at the break. Not all Delaware momentum was lost however, as Davis scored her second goal of the day off an assist by Flego for the first goal of the second half nearly six minutes in for the game’s second tie. After that though, SJU took the game over with the first of two three-goal runs.

The University of Delaware women’s lacrosse team led seven different times, and never trailed in the second half until Amanda Pappas’ scored her second straight goal with 33 seconds left in regulation to put the University of Maryland Baltimore County ahead 9-8 and send the Hens to their third straight loss to start the season. The Blue Hens have not started a season 0-3 since 1996. Both teams took 22 shots on the night, but UMBC outshot Delaware 10-7 in the second half. The Retrievers also won more groundballs (22-18), draw controls (118) and turned the ball over one less time (19 turnovers to UD's 20). The Blue Hens committed 34 fouls to UMBC's 20, as Pappas' game-tying goal came on a free-position shot following a UD foul with 2:18 left to play. The Hens were led by senior captain Deb Sloan, who scored two goals and pitched in three assists. Delaware sophomore midfielder Julianna Jeffers would also score two goals and junior attack Courtney Aburn posted a teamhigh five shots. Goalkeeper Jessica Cerveny suffered her third loss of the year after stopping eight shots. Aburn opened the scoring just over three minutes into the game with her first goal of the season off a Corinne Drost assist as the Blue Hens took an opening lead for the first time this season. UMBC would answer with two unassisted goals to put the Retrievers up 2-1. Jeffers would tie the score and then tally her third goal of the season to put Delaware back in front 3-2. Just under the nine minute mark, UMBC’s Erika Braerman would find Pappas to tie the score once more, 3-3. Sloan’s unassisted goal nearing the four-minute mark again put UD in front, but Gable tied the score for the third time with 40 seconds left on the clock. Just when it looked as though the first half would end in a tie, Sloan found junior Nicole Flego who sent a shot past Retriever goalkeeper Kate Quick just 20 seconds left before the buzzer. Neither team would score for nearly 11 minutes of play in the second half, but junior captain Morgan Marino would score off Sloan’s third assist of the night, before junior attack Emily Schaknowski, would get into the scoring mix near the 15-minute mark to give Delaware its largest lead of the night, and the season, 7-4. But Coady and the Retrievers would not go away. The freshman attack led a UMBC three-goal run within three minutes, scoring two goals of her own, and the Retrievers would tie the score for the fourth time of the night at seven apiece. Coady scored the first and third goal of that run. Sloan would put Delaware ahead for the final time at 8-7 with 3:16 left in regulation, but Pappas would tie it again about a minute later, and then score the game-winner with 33 seconds left in the game.

Rutgers came back from a 6-4 deficit to tie the game in regulation and then won the game in the second overtime as Jennifer Schmitt’s third goal of the game with 2:45 left dealt the University of Delaware women’s lacrosse team a 7-6 loss. This was Delaware’s first overtime game since April 15, 2007 when the Hens defeated Colonial Athletic Association foe Old Dominion, 7-6. The Blue Hens (0-2) were led by senior captain Deb Sloan, who scored four points on three goals and an assist from her midfield position. Corinne Drost, Brittany Davis and Holly Burman each added a goal apiece, with Burman also pitching in an assist. Drost, Davis and Sloan lead the team with three goals this season. Jessica Cerveny played the entire 70 minutes in the Blue Hen goal, making 10 saves and allowing seven goals. Delaware was outshot 24-17 and lost the draw control battle 11-6, but won 20 groundballs to Rutgers' 18 and had 15 turnovers to the Knights' 17. Rutgers, which improved to 2-2 for the year, jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first 15 minutes of play with goals by Brooke Cantwell, Kristen Anderson and Annie McGinley. The Blue Hens came storming back though and would tie the score with 22 seconds left in the half. First, Davis would get UD on the board with a goal off a feed from Sloan, and then Sloan would tally two goals of her own off assists by Nicole Flego and Emily Schaknowski. Not one minute into the second half, Drost would complete the Delaware run by scoring an unassisted goal to give the Blue Hens their first lead of the game, 4-3. Schmitt would answer quickly with an unassisted goal at 28:13 to tie the score once more, 4-4. At 24:36, Sloan would score her third goal of the day off an assist from Schaknowski, and a few minutes later Burman would add a goal off another Schaknowski assist - her third assist of the afternoon. With those two goals, Delaware owned a 6-4 lead with 21:25 left to play. Rutgers would come back to tie it as Cantwell scored her second goal of the day at 16:40 off an assist from McGinley and Schmitt scored her second goal of the game - the equalizer, with 6:07 left in regulation. Neither team scored through five minutes in the first overtime period, but Schmitt broke the tie with her third goal of the game with 2:45 left in the second overtime period, and Rutgers hung on to win 7-6.

The University of Delaware women’s lacrosse team earned its first victory of the season as the Blue Hens used a 6-0 scoring run that bridged the end of the first half with the start of the second and propeled them to a 10-8 victory over the University at Albany at Rullo Stadium. In a game that was marred by 55 fouls, 18 cards and five ejections, Delaware outshot Albany 26-23, picked up 19 groundballs to the Great Danes’ 15, and turned it over just 15 times to Albany’s 19. The Hens were led by senior captain Deb Sloan and sophomore attack Corinne Drost's three goals apiece. Sloan opened the scoring for the afternoon in the first minute of play with a goal off an assist by Morgan Marino. Albany’s Kayla Best, who came into the game with 14 goals on the season, would tie the score 1-1 not a minute later with an unassisted goal. The two teams would would trade goals two more times within the first ten minutes of the half. For Delaware, Sloan scored her second goal of the day off an assist from sophomore midfielder Ali Libertini, and Alexis Curcio scored her first goal of the season. Albany’s Christine Grueniger would tie the score following both of those Blue Hen goals, scoring two of her three goals on the afternoon to tie the score at two and three apiece. After Grueniger’s goal, however, the Great Danes went 25:18 without scoring - a drought that lasted the last 19 minutes of the first half and a little over six minutes of the second half. During that span, Delaware went on a 6-0 scoring run led by Drost’s three goals. First, Libertini scored off sophomore midfielder Holly Burman’s first assist. Then Aburn scored her second goal of the year off an assist by junior attack Emily Schaknowski. Following Drost’s first goal at 10:59, Schaknowski added her own goal at 7:53 to end the scoring for half. Delaware led 73 at intermission. Drost picked up right where she left off in the second half, scoring two consecutive goals to give UD its largest lead of the afternoon, 9-3. But Albany’s Mel Rorie stopped the bleeding at 23:48 and Julie Bush followed with a goal at 16:05 to shrink Delaware’s lead to four. The Blue Hens went through an 11 minute scoring drought in that span. Sloan would respond for Delaware, scoring an unassisted free-position goal at 13:48 to up the lead to 10-5. Rorie, Best and Grueniger would score the final three goals of the game for Albany, but it was too little too late, as Delaware won by the final, 10-8.

The University of Delaware women’s lacrosse team doubled-up Temple at Rullo Stadium, 14-7 on the strength of three goals apiece by sophomores Julianna Jeffers and Lindsey Coon. Blue Hen head coach Kim Ciarrocca won her third straight in as many games facing her alma mater and a team she served as head coach for from 1993 until 2004. The Hens controlled the action for most of the game despite the Owls winning more groundballs and draw controls. UD converted 14 of its 17 clear attempts and outshot Temple 29-18 on the afternoon. The Owls turned it over 22 times to UD’s 16. Leading the way offensively for the Blue Hens was Jeffers who took a game-high seven shot and tallied three goals. Coon also recorded a career-high three goals on three shots. Temple was led by Allison McWilliams and Chelsea Rosiek who scored three and two goals, respectively. Rosiek led the team with five shots, and she scored on both of her free-position opportunities. Delaware jumped out to a 2-0 lead within the first three minutes of play off goals by sophomore midfielder Ali Libertini and senior midfielder Deb Sloan. Nearing the halfway point of the first half, Sloan assisted on Jeffers’ first goal of the afternoon and then scored her own goal not two minutes later to increase UD’s lead to 4-0. Temple would get on the board when Rosiek scored the first of her two goals. After Jeffers pushed UD’s lead back up to four with her second goal of the day at 5:25, Temple answered with two goals within two minutes from McWilliams and Rosiek to shrink the lead to 5-3 with 2:16 left before intermission. The Blue Hens cushioned their lead with two consecutive goals in the final minute of the first half that came within 18 seconds of each other. First, Coon scored off an asisst by Libertini before Delaware marched right back down the field and Courtney Aburn scored a free-position goal. With those two goals, UD led 7-3. With 20 seconds remaining in the half, Temple’s McWilliams won the draw control, sprinted down the field and blasted a shot past Blue Hen goalkeeper Jessica Cerveny with just four seconds left in the half, closing the gap to 7-4. UD started the second half on a 3-0 run, led by Coon’s two goals and one by sophomore attack Corinne Drost. Temple was scoreless for over 10 minutes to start the second before McWilliams scored her third goal of the day on a free-position shot at 19:21. Delaware responded with a 4-0 run as four different Blue Hens found the net in a span of under five minutes. Temple’s Ann Stouffer and Missy Schweitzer would score consecutive goals for the Owls in the final two-and-ahalf minutes to give the game a final score of 14-7.

The University of Delaware women’s lacrosse team struggled offensively as the Blue Hens fell to No. 20 Loyola, 11-5, at Rullo Stadium in non-league play. Delaware’s (3-4) five goals was the lowest scoring output since Apr. 16, 2006 when the Blue Hens fell to then No. 17-ranked James Madison 16-5. Loyola (7-1), who has defeated two ranked opponents this season and has now won six straight, scored the game’s first eight goals in a nearly 40-minute span. The Greyhounds shut Delaware out in the first half and over 10 minutes into the second half. They out-shot the Blue Hens 27-19, won the groundball battle 17-14 and won 13 draw controls to UD’s four. UD senior goalkeeper Jessica Cerveny played all 60 minutes, making six saves while allowing 11 goals. Loyola’s Meg Steffe started for the Greyhounds, making two saves to shut the Blue Hens out in the first half. Kerry Stoothoff played the second half in the Greyhound goal making five saves while allowing five goals. Junior attack Emily Schaknowski led the way for Delaware with a goal and an assist. Senior midfielder Deb Sloan saw limited action as she is still nursing a back injury, but managed to score her team-leading 11th goal of the season. Junior Courtney Aburn and sophomore Julianna Jeffers tied for a team-high four shots. Meg Taylor opened the scoring for Loyola with a goal right before the 25-minute mark off an assist from Emily Gibson. Then the Greyhounds’ leading scorer, Grace Gavin, scored the first of her four goals for the afternoon at 19:21 off an assist from Mary Heneberry. A couple minutes later, Colleen O’Keefe extended Loyola’s lead to 3-0. Neither team would score for over 13 minutes until Abby Rehfuss scored near the three-minute mark to give the Greyhounds a 4-0 lead going at the half. Rehfuss struck again 24 seconds into the second stanza with a goal off an asisst from O’Keefe. Gavin, Gibson and O’Keefe would add three more Loyola goals in a span of within five minutes, improving the lead to 8-0. Schaknowski finally broke the ice for the Hens at 19:05. Less than a minute later, Jeffers scored her seventh goal of the year off an Alexis Curcio assist, and the Blue Hens were within six. After Gavin scored her third goal of the game at 17:05, Sloan scored on a free-position shot almost three minutes later to make the score 9-3. But Loyola answered again - this time, it was Mary Heneberry off O’Keefe’s third assist of the game. Freshman midfielder Stephanie Allen and junior captain Morgan Marino each scored their second goals of the season at 4:06 and 1:59, respectively, to bring the Hens within five, but Grace finished off her four-goal day with her 29th goal of the season at 1:12, sending Loyola to the 11-5 win.

Junior attack Emily Schaknowski notched her 100th career point on her second goal of the afternoon, as the University of Delaware women’s lacrossed team held off a furios St. Bonaventure four-goal run to win its third straight by a score of 12-8 at Rullo Stadium. Nine different Blue Hens found the net, led by sophomore midfielder Ali Libertini, who scored three goals. Schaknowski led the team with 12 shots, putting 11 on net. She also picked up two groundballs and won three draw controls. Delaware (3-3) won nearly every statistical category as the Blue Hens outshot SBU 36-20, won the groundball battle 28-15 and won 16 draw controls to the Bonnies’ seven. Defensively, the Hens converted six out of eight clear attempts and senior goalkeeper Jessica Cerveny made eight saves to pick up her third win of the season. Leading St. Bonaventure (3-3) were Christine Hanley and Molly Hastrich with three goals apiece. Tori Waheibi started in goal for SBU, making 12 saves and allowing nine goals as she picked up the loss. Victoria Morgan came in for the second half and saved nine shots while allowing three goals. Neither team scored for nearly 14 minutes until Hanley opened the scoring on a free-position shot near the 16-minute mark. Delaware’s Libertini responded with a goal just under the 12-minute mark to tie the score 1-1 and spark a 3-0 UD run with the other two goals by Corinne Drost and Holly Burman. Hostrich then scored for SBU after a nearly eight-minute dry spell to bring the Bonnies within one at 3-2, but that would be the closest they would get. The Blue Hens used a 6-0 run to close out the first half as they held SBU scoreless the final 8:15 of the half. Hanley ended a drought of nearly 14 minutes for SBU when she scored on another free-position shot a little over five minutes into the second stanza to bring the Bonnies to within six, 9-3. But Libertini then scored her third goal of the day and freshman midfielder Stephanie Allen scored her first goal of the year, and the Blue Hens upped their lead to 11-3 in just a two-minute span. After Hasrich’s second goal of the day made the score 11-4 at 9:49, Schaknowski fired a shot past Morgan for her second goal of the day as she became the 25th Delaware player to reach 100 points for her career. St. Bonaventure, after another drought of over eight minutes, did go on a four-goal run starting with Hastrich’s third goal at 1:39 and ending with a goal by Samantha Cavallaro with 24 seconds remaining. A save followed by a grounball by Cerveny with 11 seconds left to play ended the game.

Morgan Marino’s goal at 6:16 proved to be the game-winner as the University of Delaware women’s lacrosse team hung on to beat the University of Oregon 6-5 at Westwood High School in Westwood, Mass. Delaware (4-4) got a great defensive effort from senior defenders Ange Gaeta and Erin Zimmerman, as well as a superb day in goal by senior Jessica Cerveny that included 14 saves and a game-high six groundballs, while allowing just five goals. Cerveny's 14 saves were her most in a game since posting 18 against Notre Dame on March 23, 2008. The five goals allowed also marked the lowest total by a Delaware opponent since Penn State dropped a 13-4 decision last season. Leading the way offensively for the Blue Hens was junior attack Courtney Aburn with two goals and a teamhigh six shots. Oregon (7-3), which had a six-game winning streak snapped, got a game-high three goals from Ilsa van den Berg. She also took a game-high nine shots, putting seven on net. The Ducks’ goalkeeper Anna Poponyak made six saves and allowed six goals in the losing effort. Aburn opened the scoring for the day with an unassisted goal a little over three minutes into the action. Oregon’s Bina Barrett and van den Berg then scored for Oregon in a span of a little over five minutes to take a 2-1 lead at 18:04. But that would be the Ducks’ first and only lead of the day. The Blue Hens then went on a 3-0 run with goals by Stephanie Allen, Lindsey Coon and Aburn to regain the lead, 4-2. Oregon’s Anna Swicklik scored with six seconds left in the half on a free-position shot to make the score 4-3 at the intermission. Junior attack Emily Schaknowski pushed Delaware’s lead to 5-3 with an unassisted goal nearly three minutes into the second stanza. But van den Berg answered about three minutes later with her second goal at 24:10. It was a Marino goal at 6:16 that gave the Hens a two-goal cushion and proved to be the game-winner. The Ducks tried to rally at the end, as van den Berg scored her third and final goal at 2:39, but Cerveny and the Blue Hen defense were up to the task as Delaware held on for the nail-biting, 6-5 victory.

The No. 11 Vanderbilt Commodores took a 5-0 lead in the first seven minutes of the game and never loooked back as they handed the University of Delaware women’s lacrosse team a 20-10 road loss. Delaware (4-5) was led offensively by junior attack Courtney Aburn with two goals and an assist. Alexis Curcio, Erin Zimmerman, Corinne Drost and Emily Schaknowski each added a goal and an assist. The Blue Hens turned the ball over a season-high 26 times to Vanderbilt’s 19 and lost the groundball battle 26-17. Vanderbilt (6-3), which was coming off a 22-7 win over Binghamton, has now won its last four games. The Commodores got a game-high seven points from Sarah Downing as she scored five goals and had two assists. Vanderbilt’s Ally Carey also pitched in with four goals and one assists, and took a game-high eight shots. The Commodores outshot Delaware, 36-28. Vanderbilt built a 5-0 lead in the first seven minutes, led by three consecutive goals by Downing. Drost would put Delaware on the board at 22:19 off a feed from Schaknowski. The two teams traded goals over the next few minutes before Delaware scored two consecutive goals to cut the deficit to three with Curcio’s free position goal at 11:37 to make the score, 7-4. That would be the closest the Blue Hens would get though, as Vanderbilt ran off four unanswered goals to end the first half and took an 11-4 lead into the intermission. Katherine Denkler scored three of those four Commodore goals. Vanderbilt added two goals to its lead to start the second half, completing a 6-0 run as the Commodores held Delaware scoreless for nearly 14 1/2 minutes. Aburn stopped the bleeding for Delaware near the 24-minute mark with an unassisted goal. That goal sparked a 3-0 Blue Hen run as Delaware fought to get back into the game with goals by Zimmerman and freshman Stephanie Allen. Allen’s first of two goals on the afternoon brought the Hens within six at 13-7 with 17:31 left to play. The Commodores answered with two consecutive goals by Downing and Carter Foote to push the lead back up to 15-7. Allen would score her second goal of the day at 12:17, but Carey led Vanderbilt on a 4-0 run with two goals of her own, and Vanderbilt’s lead was 20-9. Delaware, which kept fighting until the end, got one last goal from Aburn as time expired, making the score, 20-10. Vanderbilt's 20 goals marked the most by a Delaware opponent since Apr. 19, 1995 when No. 2 Princeton posted a 21-10 victory over the Blue Hens.

Freshman midfielder Stephanie Allen scored six goals and sophomore attack Lindsey Coon added four as the University of Delaware women’s lacrosse team defeated William & Mary, 15-11 in Colonial Athletic Association action. Delaware (6-5, 2-0 CAA) has now won 20 of its last 23 home games at Rullo Stadium dating back to 2007. The two teams were pretty even in most statistical categories, but William & Mary did out-shoot the Blue Hens, 35-27. Delaware senior goalkeeper Jessica Cerveny was up to the challenge as she made 14 saves, many of them from point-blank range. She also scooped up a game-high seven groundballs on the day to pick up the win in goal. Leading the way for the Tribe was Ashley Holofcener with six points on four goals and two assists, while Sarah Johnson and Mary Zulty each tallied three points for W&M. Johnson also forced a game-high five turnovers. Coon put Delaware on the board a little over a minute into the action with an unassisted goal. Allen followed a little over five minutes later to give the Hens an early 2-0 lead. Holfcener put the Tribe in the scoring column at 18:23 with a goal off an assist from Grace Golden to cut the Blue Hen lead in half, but Delaware responded with two quick strikes. Allen scored again off an assist from Sloan and senior midfielder Erin Zimmerman scored off junior attack Emily Schaknowski’s assist 46 seconds later to push the lead to 4-1. Holfcener again responded for the Tribe with a goal at 14:38 and Johnson followed a few minutes later to cut the deficit to 4-3. Delaware then went on a 3-0 run to give Delaware its biggest lead of the day at 7-3. The Tribe answered with a 4-0 run in a span of just over three minutes to tie the score at seven apiece. Following Johnson’s goal with nine seconds left in the half, Allen won the draw control for the Hens on the Tribe’s half of the field, and sprinted down the middle of the field and threw a shot past W&M goalkeeper Emily Geary just before the buzzer to give the Hens an 8-7 advantage at the break. Coon started the scoring in the second stanza with a free-position goal a little over 30 seconds in to give the Hens a two-goal cushion. The Tribe’s Maggie Anderson scored a few minutes later, but that would be the closest the Tribe would get the rest of the way. Aburn then scored off a Schaknowski assist, and Coon followed with her fourth goal of the day and 11th of the season at 23:03 to put Delaware in front 11-8. The two teams traded goals the rest of the way, with Allen scoring the game’s final goal at 1:13 to give the game its final score of 15-11.

University of Delaware freshman Stephanie Allen bounced a shot past Old Dominion goalkeeper Sarah Geary with just two seconds left to play as the Blue Hens opened the Colonial Athletic Association women's lacrosse season with a thrilling 9-8 win at Rullo Stadium. After Old Dominion misfired on a free position shot with 5:18 left in the game, Delaware gained possession and worked the ball around inside ODU territory for just over four minutes before Emily Schaknowski broke to the net and fed Allen in the middle for the winning goal. Allen's shot bounced once and lifted over Geary's shoulder and into the top of the net, igniting a celebration by the Blue Hens (5-5, 1-0 CAA). Allen and Courtney Aburn each scored two goals while Schaknowski scored twice and dished out two assists. Hen goalkeeper Jessica Cerveny posted five saves, including the key stop on the Lady Monarchs' late free position try. Kelly Kimener led ODU (6-3, 0-1 CAA) with four goals and took a game-high eight shots for the Lady Monarchs, who were coming off a 13-10 win over No. 9-ranked Virginia on Apr. 1. ODU got on the board first nearly three minutes into the action with an unassisted goal by Saratu Dodo. Kimener followed with a goal a little more than two minutes later to give the Lady Monarchs a 2-0 lead. Schaknowski put the Blue Hens on the board at 20:47 with a free position goal to bring Delaware within one. The two teams would trade goals for a span of 10 minutes, as ODU took its last two-goal lead, 5-3, with a goal by Kimener at the 8:30 mark. The Blue Hens then went on a three-goal run to close out the half and take a 6-5 lead at the intermission. Sophomore Lindsey Coon scored one goal and asissted on another during that run. Schaknowski extended Delaware’s run to four when she scored her second goal of the day at 26:23 to give Delaware its largest lead of the day, 7-5. After Jessia Noone’s goal at 25:21 brought the Lady Monarch’s within one at 7-6, senior midfielder and converted true defender Erin Zimmerman scored her third goal of the year on a free position shot to push the Blue Hen lead back to two at 8-6. But ODU would tie the score at 9:53 with goals by Kimener and Noone within five minutes of each other. With the score tied 8-8, senior goalkeeper Jessica Cerveny made a few crucial saves, including one from point blank range to keep the Blue Hens alive. Just when it looked as though the game was headed to overtime, Allen scored with two seconds remaining to give Delaware a 9-8 lead. Old Dominion’s Erica Erb controlled the draw as time ran out.

In a game that was tied 1-1 at halftime, the University of Delaware women’s lacrosse team’s defense keyed a 7-3 victory over Colonial Athletic Association rival Drexel at Vidas Field in Philadelphia. Drexel’s three goals marked the fewest goals allowed by Delaware since Apr. 3, 2003 when the Blue Hens defeated Regis University, 15-3. Delaware (7-5, 3-0) stays unbeaten in the CAA as Drexel falls to 7-5 for the year and 0-3 in the conference. The Dragons have lost their lost four and the Blue Hens have won their last three. Senior goalkeeper Jessica Cerveny picked up the win in goal making seven saves and allowing just three goals in the full 60 minutes of play. The three goals allowed marks the lowest total of her career. Leading the Hens defensively were senior Alexis Curcio (two groundballs, three caused turnovers), captain Amanda Lahiff (three caused turnovers), and Erin Zimmerman. As a team, Delaware forced 20 turnovers and allowed Drexel to take just 13 shots. The Blue Hens also converted 100 percent (17 of 17) of their clear attempts and scooped up 13 groundballs to the Dragons’ six. Delaware outshot Drexel 27-13. Drexel appeared headed toward a big offensive game early as the Blue Hens were whistled for offsides while the Dragons were on offense. Danielle Iacono was given the ball in the middle of the area for the restart. She flipped the ball to Nicole Musto who scored and put the Dragons on the board just 1:04 into the game. The score remained 1-0 for 10 minutes until the Blue Hens were finally able to beat Drexel’s Lauren LaBella (11 saves, seven goals allowed) as junior attack Emily Schaknowski converted a free-position shot to tie the game. Both teams had chances over the final 20 minutes but were unable to convert as both goalies made impressive saves as the score remained 1-1 as the halftime horn sound. Delaware quickly ended the scoring drought with a goal just 25 seconds into the half as senior captain Deb Sloan scored on a skipping shot that found the net. That goal marked the 100th point of Sloan’s career at UD. Just over eight minutes later, Delaware scored again as junior attack Courney Aburn took a sophomore attack Lindsey Coon pass and beat LaBella. The Dragons ended their scoreless streak when Becca Drylie-Perkins connected on a free-position shot from the left side to bring Drexel back to within one. The Dragons were unable to generate more chances as Delaware put the game away over the next 14 minutes with three straight goals. Delaware capped its scoring with freshman Stephanie Allen’s second goal of the game with nine seconds reamaining to make the final score, 7-3. Allen, the reigning CAA Co-Rookie of the Week, has now scored in the last seven games for the Blue Hens.

The red-hot University of Delaware women's lacrosse team fell out of sole possession of first place in the Colonial Athletic Association standings as the Blue Hens suffered their first league loss of the season with an 8-6 setback to Hofstra at wind-swept Rullo Stadium. Delaware (7-6, 3-1 CAA), which had a three-game win streak snapped and lost for just the fourth time at home in 24 games since 2007, pulled to within a goal with just under 10 minutes left to play but were shutdown the rest of the way. Hofstra (9-4, 3-1 CAA), which had played three straight overtime games and won two of them, got four goals and an assist from Ashley Jones and Liz Falco scored twice, including an insurance tally with 7:20 left to play. Falco also dished out an assist while Corrine Gandolfi scored twice and goalkeeper Mary Cuddihy came up with eight saves in a solid effort in the nets. Emily Schaknowski and Julianna Jeffers each scored twice for UD, who had entered the game in sole possession of the top spot in the CAA standings. Seniors Deb Sloan and Alexis Curcio also scored goals and senior goalkeeper Jessica Cerveny notched seven saves as Delaware honored its six seniors in a pre-game ceremony. Despite the loss, the Hens did remain in first place in the jumbled CAA standings and now share the top spot with Old Dominion, Hofstra, and William & Mary, all of whom won Sunday to improve to 3-1 in league play. Schaknowski scored just seven minutes into the game to give Delaware what proved to be its only sole possession of the lead as Hofstra answered on back-to-back goals by Jones four minutes apart. Sloan tied the game at 2-2 on a free position goal for Delaware with 14:49 left in the first half but Jones scored again for the Pride at the 8:54 mark to give Hofstra a 3-2 advantage and a lead they would never relinquish. Falco and Gandolfi scored two goals in a span of just 1:34 to up the Hofstra lead to 5-2 but the Hens cut the margin to 5-3 at the break as Jeffers scored with just 31 seconds left in the stanza. The teams traded goals in the second half as Hofstra maintained its lead on goals by Jones and Gandolfi and the Hens countered with scores by Schaknowski and Curcio. Curcio’s goal with 10:03 cut the Hofstra deficit to 7-5 and when Jeffers scored just 10 second later off a nice feed from Holly Burman off the draw, Delaware had pulled to within one goal at 7-6 at the 9:53 mark. But Falco gave Hofstra some breathing room with a goal at 7:20 and the Hens would manage just two shots the rest of the way - both saved by Cuddihy.

The University of Delaware women’s lacrosse team defeated Colonial Athletic Association foe George Mason 14-8 on the road on the strength of a career-high five goals and an assist by senior captain Deb Sloan. Sloan’s five goals marked her third hat-trick of the season and the 12th of her career. Freshman midfielder Stephanie Allen also pitched in three goals and junior attack Courtney Aburn posted two goals and two assists. The Blue Hens (9-6, 5-1 CAA) outshot the Patriots (5-10, 1-5 CAA) 27-17, led by Sloan’s game-high seven shots. Both teams turned the ball over 16 times and both scooped up 22 groundballs. Seniors Amanda Lahiff and Alexis Curcio led the Hens with five groundballs apiece. The two teams traded goals for most of the first half with the lead changing four times. Mason got on the board first nearly four minutes into the game. Aburn answered a little over a minute with an unassisted goal to tie the score. After Mason’s Alana Chan scored at 24:31, Delaware tied the score once again as Sloan scored the first of her five goals on the day a little over three minutes later. Curcio gave Delaware its first lead of the day, 3-2, at 18:31 with an unassisted goal. Neither team would score for over 12 minutes, but then Mason’s Caroline Hoyt scored off an assist from Madalyn Jamison to knot the score at 3-3. Hoyt would score again following a Delaware goal by Ali Libertini, tying the score for a fifth time in the first half. Not 30 seconds after Hoyt tied the score a fifth time, Allen scored her first goal of the game to regain the lead for Delaware. Sophomore attack Lindsey Coon added another UD goal with 47 seconds left in the half to give the Hens their largest lead of the half at 6-4. After closing out the first half on a 2-0 run, Delaware continued its momentum into the second half going on a 3-0 run to begin the period. Sloan struck twice within the first minute of the period, both on assists from Aburn. Then Aburn scored her own goal at 27:52 to give Delaware a 9-4 lead. Mason’s Brittany Berger scored at the 23:27 mark to bring the Patriots within four 9-5, and Emily Ellisen’s goal at 20:24 again brought them within four at 10-6, but that would be the closest they would get. Allen and Sloan each added two more goals and all Mason could manage was one more goal by Ellisen at 1:22 and one from Alana Chan to bring the Patriots within six. With the win, Delaware stays tied with Old Dominion for No. 1 in the CAA standings after the Monarchs defeated Drexel 14-7 on Sunday. The Blue Hens own the tie-breaker over ODU having beat them back on Apr. 3.

April 23, 2009 • Towson, Md.

The University of Delaware women’s lacrosse team defeated Colonial Athletic Association foe James Madison 10-6 on the road on the strength of three goals apiece by senior Alexis Curcio and sophomore Holly Burman. James Madison (5-9, 1-4) out-shot Delaware (8-6, 4-1) 25-17, won the groundball battle 12-9 and draw control battle 10-8, but only converted three of 14 free-position attempts as Delaware goalkeeper Jessica Cerveny made eight saves to pick up the win. The Blue Hens, meanwhile, converted all four of their free-position shots. Both teams were penalized heavily throughout the game, particularly Delaware in the first half with 24. The two teams combined for 64 penalties in the game. Delaware committed 12 turnovers to the Dukes’ nine. Curcio opened the scoring for the night with a free-position goal a little over two minutes into the game. Sophomore Ali Libertini followed with an unassisted goal shortly thereafter to give the Hens a 2-0 advantage.The Dukes would then score two goals to tie the score in a span of almost eight minutes. A little over a minute after JMU tied the score at two, Burman scored two consecutive goals within 19 seconds of one another to begin a 6-0 run to end the first half. Curcio also added her second and third goal as part of that run. Senior captain Deb Sloan’s goal with 3:47 lingering on the clock capped the run and gave Delaware an 8-2 advantage at the half. JMU would then go on a 3-0 run with goals by Jaime Dardine, Ashley Kimener and Monica Zabel all within the first four minutes of the second stanza to bring the score to 8-5 at 26:32. Neither team would score for the next 15 minutes until Burman’s third goal of the night pushed the UD lead back to four goals at 9-5. JMU’s Mary Kate Lomady scored her second goal of the night at 9:45 to again bring the Dukes within three, but that would be the cloest they would get. Sloan added her second goal of the night at 6:49, and Delaware’s defense maintained the four-goal lead the rest of the way.

The University of Delaware women’s lacrosse team was outscored 5-1 in the second half as the Blue Hens lost a pivotal Colonial Athletic Association game to rival Towson, 10-6, at Rullo Stadium. Delaware (9-7, 5-2), which was playing for the regular season championship and the right to host the fourteam CAA Tournament, will now be the No. 2 seed and will play the loser of the Old Dominion vs. William & Mary game being played tonight at 7 p.m. Towson, which is to be a No. 4 seed, will face the winner of the ODU vs. W&M game. The winner of that ODU vs. W&M game will host the semifinals and finals. Statistically, the game was very even. The two teams were tied with 24 shots, Delaware won the groundball battle 22-17 and Towson won 11 draw controls to UD’s seven. The Tigers’ defense converted 21 of 25 clear attempts and the Blue Hens converted 14 of 19. Neither team converted any free-position shots. Senior goalkeeper Jessica Cerveny made six saves and allowed 10 goals in the losing effort. Towson’s Mary Teeters, the reigning CAA Rookie of the Week, allowed six goals and made 13 saves to pick up the win. Delaware was led offensively by junior attack Emily Schaknowski, who had two goals. She took a game-high five shots and won two draw controls. Ali Libertini and Corinne Drost each added a goal and an assist as well. Defensively, Erin Zimmerman caused three turnovers and scooped up a game-high five groundballs. The first half featured five ties and four lead changes. Neither team led by more than one. Towson’s Meggie McNamara netted an unassisted goal at 25:20 to give Towson an early lead, but Delaware responded with two unassisted goals by Libertini and Alexis Curcio. Curcio’s goal put UD in front, 2-1 at 20:44. Towson would tie the score at two apiece 32 seconds later with a goal by Steph Taylor. Neither team would score for nearly eight minutes, but the Tigers’ McNamara netted a goal at 12:40 to regain the lead, 3-2. Delaware sophomore Holly Burman then scored off a feed by Libertini to knot the score at three at the 7:15 mark, and after Towson’s Cassie Krause scored at 4:21, Schaknowski scored 12 seconds later to tie it again, 4-4. Drost’s unassisted goal at 3:34 gave Delaware its last lead of the day at 5-4, but Towson’s Nikki Marcinik’s goal with 27 seconds left before intermission sent the game to its fifth and final tie. Neither team scored for over 15 minutes of play until Marcinik struck again for her 45th goal of the season at 14:18. Towson’s Jackie LaMonica and McNamara each added two goals as part of a 6-0 Towson run that bridged the final 27 seconds of the first half and the majority of the second half.

The University of Delaware women’s lacrosse team withstood a late Old Dominion run and defeated the No. 18 ranked Monarchs 8-6 in the Colonial Athletic Association semifinals at Albert-Daly Field on the campus of William & Mary. The No. 2-seeded Blue Hens advance to play in the finals on Saturday at 1 p.m. and will face No. 4 Towson, which defeated top-seed and host William & Mary15-10 in Thursday's first semifinal game. Delaware was led offensively by senior captain Deb Sloan, who had four goals. Senior goalkeeper Jessica Cerveny saved 13 shots to pick up the win. Defensively, seniors Erin Zimmerman and Ange Gaeta held Ashley Kellogg and CAA Player of the Year Kelly Kimener to just four combined points. Junior Emily Schaknowski opened the scoring a little over four minutes into the action for Delaware as she ripped a shot past CAA Rookie of the Year, Sarah Geary. ODU’s Saratu Dodo responded a few minutes later off an assist from Kellogg, finding a seam in a crowd right in front of the net and beating Cerveny to tie the score. Sloan would then score on a free-position shot at 21:52 to put Delaware ahead again, 2-1. But the Monarchs’ Jessica Noone scored off another assist from Kellogg to tie the score again, 2-2. At the 15-minute mark, sophomore Ali Libertini scored off a feed from Schaknowski and freshman Steph Allen followed with a free-position goal at 13:10 to give UD a two-goal lead, 4-2. Kimener scored at 9:01 to bring ODU back within one, 4-3. Sloan would then score her second goal of the game just under the five-minute mark, but Kimener scored again at the two-minute mark to close out the scoring for the first half. Delaware took a 5-4 lead into intermission. Leading 6-4 nearing the six-minute mark, Libertini was pressuring Geary who was holding the ball and circling the crease, and caused her to force a pass into the middle of the field. Allen anticipated the pass, reached out and intercepted it, then charged the net and bounced a shot past Geary to up Delaware’s lead to 7-4. But ODU would not go away. Down by three, the Monarchs got two quick goals from Noone and Rebecca Hartrum to shrink the lead to 7-6 at 3:16. Delaware controlled the ball for most of the remaning time and melted the clock down to 30.7 seconds before Sloan iced the game with an open-net goal to give Delaware an 8-6 lead. In the final seconds, sophomore Lindsey Coon forced a turnover and senior Alexis Curcio scooped up the groundball and launched the ball down the field as time ran out. This marks the first time in four tries that Delaware has won a CAA semifinal game and advanced to the championship game. The Hens will be looking to capture their first league championship since winning the America East title in 1999. A win would give Delaware an automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament and would mark the Hens' first entry into the national tournament since the 2000 campaign.

The No. 2 seed University of Delaware women’s lacrosse team fell to No. 4 Towson, 8-7 in the Colonial Athletic Association Championship at Albert-Daly Field on the campus of William & Mary. Delaware finished the season 10-8 and advanced to its first ever CAA Tournament final, but fell just one-goal short. Towson, who has now won its last seven games, became the first four seed to win both its semifinal and final games in CAA Tournament history. “These are great kids,” said head coach Kim Ciarrocca. “They could have given up today, but they didn’t. I told them this game could have gone either way - we were right there. But this was a great season. Our kids could have packed it in a long time ago, but they decided they wanted to keep getting better, and they did. I’m very proud of them.” The Blue Hens outshot Towson 24-22 and tied in the groundball battle at 19 apiece. Towson won 10 draw controls to Delaware’s seven and turned it over 11 times to Delaware’s 13. Senior goalkeeper Jessica Cerveny stopped 11 shots in the loss. She, along with senior Erin Zimmerman and junior Emily Schaknowski were honored on the CAA All-Tournament team. Delaware sophomore Holly Burman opened the scoring for the day. Delaware worked the ball around for a few minutes, and then Ali Libertini, from behind the net, found a cutting Burman who sent a shot past Towson goalie Mary Teeters for the opening goal at 26:09. Steph Taylor answered for Towson with a free-position goal at 24:46 to tie the score, but All-Rookie Team member Steph Allen scored a free-position goal at 22:34 to grab the lead back for Delaware. Nearly three-and-a-half minutes later, Taylor scored her second goal and began what amounted to a 4-0 Towson run over the next ten minutes of action. Meggie McNamara, the CAA’s leader in assists per game, assisted on the first two and four different Tigers scored goals. After Katie Cloud’s goal at 9:13 with Towson leading 5-2, Delaware head coach Kim Ciarrocca called a timeout. Not long after the action re-started, Allen broke the ice for the Hens with an unassisted goal at 7:33. Neither team would score for the remainder of the half, and Towson led 5-3 at the intermission. The scoring drought continued for 15:41 into the second half before All-CAA Second Team selection Emily Schaknowski brought the Hens within one with an unassisted goal at 14:19. But Towson would go on a 3-0 run with goals by Woodfield, Taylor and McNamara to back up 8-4. There was no quit in the Blue Hens though, as senior Erin Zimmerman intercepted a pass, led the charge down the field and passed to sophomore Corinne Drost who found Schaknowski in the middle of the field and Schaknowski ripped a shot past Teeters to bring the Hens within three, 8-5. Not a minute later, sophomore Ali Libertini caused a turnover by Teeters behind the net, then wrapped around the net and snuck the ball past Teeters for another UD goal, shrinking the lead to 8-6. Off another turnover, Libertini found a cutting Drost in front of the net, and Drost scored to bring the Hens within one, 8-7, nearing the two-minute mark. On Delaware’s last possession, senior captain Deb Sloan ripped a shot from just outside the circle, but Teeters made the save and Towson ran out the clock to secure the championship victory.

The conference has made its presence known nationally in men’s basketball with a leaguerecord five teams advancing to postseason play in 2008-09. Conference champion VCU made its third NCAA Tournament appearance in the last six years, while George Mason reached the postseason for the seventh time in a decade in the NIT. Old Dominion, making its fifth straight postseason trip, captured the inaugural CIT championship, while James Madison made the CIT semifinals. Northeastern reached the quarterfinals of the CBI. In 2006, George Mason captured the nation’s imagination by becoming the first mid-major program since 1979 to reach the Final Four, knocking off powerhouses Michigan State, North Carolina, Wichita State and Connecticut along the way. The Patriots were ranked No. 8 in the final ESPN/USA Today Top 25 poll, which was the highest ever for a CAA team. The CAA has had at least three women’s basketball teams participate in post-season play for the past four seasons. Drexel captured its first CAA championship in 2009 and was joined in the NCAA Tournament by VCU, giving the league multiple teams in the Big Dance for the second time in three years. James Madison earned a postseason berth for the fourth year in a row in the WNIT. Perennial power Old Dominion, which has won three national championships (1979, 1980, 1985) and was national runner-up in 1997, claimed an NCAA-record 17 straight CAA titles before seeing its incredible streak come to an end last year. 22

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. Delaware and Towson have each reached the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship. Three women’s soccer teams have reached Colonial Athletic Association 8625 Patterson Ave. the second round of the NCAA Tournament Richmond, VA 23229 for the past two seasons and at least one Phone: 804-754-1616 Fax: 804-754-1830 men’s soccer team has advanced to the final www.caasports.com 16 of the NCAA Championship in five of the Commissioner: last seven years.

Fenn, a research professor in the Department of Chemistry at Virginia Commonwealth University, received the Nobel Prize for chemistry, and Vernon Smith, a professor of economics and law at George Mason University, shared the Nobel Prize in economic sciences. Commissioner Thomas E. Yeager has guided the CAA since its inception. The conference traces its roots back to 1983 when three of its current members- George Mason University, James Madison University, and the College of William and Mary - were aligned with East Carolina 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 association. The transformation from ECAC South to CAA took place on June 6, 1985. Charter members George Mason, James Madison, UNC Wilmington and William and Mary were joined by Old Dominion University in 1991 and 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 on July 1, 2005. Celebrating its 25th Anniversary, the CAA takes great pride in producing student-athletes who stand out on the playing field and in the classroom.

FRED P. RULLO STADIUM The Fred. P. Rullo Jr. Stadium, a state-of-the-art, artificial turf stadium, located just south of the Bob Carpenter Sports/Convocation Center, was dedicated on September 18, 1998. Its construction was made possible, in part, by the generous donation of one University of Delaware alumnus: Fred P. Rullo Jr. of Bryn Mawr, Pa., AS '63, a former letterwinner in football and baseball. He and his wife, Madeleine, gave the University $1 million toward the $3.3 million cost of the stadium. Rullo Stadium, home to the Blue Hen women's field hocke and women's lacrosse teams, and former home to the men’s lacrosse team, can also be used as a practice facility for football, baseball, softball, and men's and women's soccer practices, occasional home games for soccer; physical education classes; intramural and recreation program events; high school field hockey and lacrosse championships; and Special Olympics events. Rullo Stadium features an artificial turf surface 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. Called Action-Turf-55, this knitted nylon artificial turf system with urethane foam secondary backing is laid over a 1.5-inch-thick elastic shock pad made of pulverized rubber mixed with washed gravel and held together with liquid urethane binder. The field is watered before field hockey games and practices by four sprinklers which deliver 400 gallons of water a minute, throwing it 200 feet. There is bleacher seating for approximately 2,000 fans, lights that permit evening use, a press box, a multi-sport scoreboard and blacktopped parking behind the bleachers. Fred P. Rullo Stadium was completed in time for the 1998 field hockey season in September and the Blue Hen field hockey, men's lacrosse, and women's lacrosse teams all used the new stadium for an impressive home field advantage. All three teams enjoyed great success in the stadium and all three earned Top 20 national rankings during the 1999-00 season. The field hockey team posted a record of 10-1 at Rullo in 1998 while men's lacrosse was 8-1 and women's lacrosse was 2-2 in limited action. The women's lacrosse team, America East champions in 1997, 1998, and 1999, and NCAA Tournament participants in 2000, used the field for full-time play for the first time in 2000, yet also have the opportunity to play on grass. The men's lacrosse team, which advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 1999, averaged over 1,100 fans per game in 1999, including two standing room only crowds of 2,500 in night game victories over Towson (April 10) and Penn State (April 24). The stadium served as host to the 2000 United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) North-South Senior All-Star Game, marking the first time that Delaware has hosted the prestigious game. Rullo Stadium also served as host to the US Lacrosse National Team Tryouts in June, 2001. In announcing the gift, former University of Delaware President David P. Roselle said, "It's been said nothing ever built rose to touch the skies unless someone dreamed it should, someone dreamed it could and someone willed that it must." "That should, could, and must have come together in the form of Fred P. Rullo Jr.," Roselle said, "and we are extremely grateful." The Board of Trustees, at its semiannual meeting on May 26, 1998, asked to affirm a resolution naming the new facility in recognition of Rullo, a faithful and generous supporter of the University who serves on the board of the UD Athletic Fund. Rullo and his wife, Madeleine, have three children, two of whom are UD alumni - Patricia a member of the class of '85, and Linda, who graduated in 1987. Linda is a former member of the University of Delaware women's lacrosse team. Rullo, now retired, had a distinguished career with Atlantic Richfield and the Freedom Chemical Co., serving as chairman, president and CEO of the latter company, which was sold to B.F. Goodrich Co. The stadium completes the David M. Nelson Athletic Complex and brings the University of Delaware athletic playing facilities - already ranked among the best on the East Coast - into the 21st century. Desso DLW of Dendermonde, Belgium agreed to install its ActionTurf nylon surface for the cost of the polypropylene and to donate an installed $40,000 watering system and woven field hockey lines in return for use of the University of Delaware as its "showcase facility" in the United States. Approximately 98 percent of the field hockey fields in Europe are made by this company. DD Martin of Hunt Valley, Md., which handled the artificial turf project, and the Clark Co. of New York, which did all of the sub-base work, including drainage, conduit, stone base, lights, and bleacher foundations, also were partners in the project.

U NIVERSITY OF DELAWARE CAMPUS LIFE The University of Delaware is a state-assisted, private institution of higher education that offers the best of public and private colleges. Delaware combines the personalized attention associated with small colleges with the diversified resources and programs usually found at major research universities.

THE FACULTY The individuals most responsible for the attainment of academic excellence are members of the faculty. They have been attracted to Delaware from distinguished universities in America and around the world. Over 89 percent hold a terminal degree in their field. Though many professors have gained national and international prominence for research contributions in their disciplines, teaching remains a primary concern. At Delaware students are exposed to the most experienced professors throughout their academic career.

THE UNDERGRADUATES Maintaining an exciting academic environment requires not only outstanding and dedicated professors, but talented students willing to accept academic challenge. By national standards, the University's student body is well qualified: the average SAT scores are well above the national average. Students entering the University typically average nearly 1,200 on the SAT. Over 70 percent maintained an average of B or better during their high school years; and the University attracts more national merit scholars then most comparable institutions and more than some Ivy League schools.

MAJOR PROGRAMS With eight distinct undergraduate colleges offering 124 degree programs from which to choose, Delaware allows study in everything from accounting to agriculture, English to engineering, philosophy to physical therapy. The approved list of University courses totals over 4,000. Although University of Delaware class sizes can range from a minimum of one (independent study) to a lecture class of 300, more than 70 percent of class sections have fewer than 30 students. Classes are usually organized to include small-group discussions and the average class size is between 24 to 38 with the faculty-to-student ratio approximately 1 to 16. Students who choose Delaware are obviously impressed by what they find here. The average five-year graduation is almost 75 percent and the average retention rate for students from the freshman to the sophomore year is 89 percent. Additionally, approximately 90 percent of University of Delaware athletic letterwinners graduate with a degree.

CAMPUS The quality of education at the University of Delaware is enhanced by its Newark campus, a 1,000-acre tract featuring stately elm trees and Georgian architecture that gives the University its picturesque and traditional atmosphere. The Delaware campus is one combining beauty and function – an ideal learning environment. At the University of Delaware you learn, but you learn about more than books – you learn about life. Interacting within the diverse 16,000 undergraduate student population provides growth for the total person. Students have opportunities to become involved in government or planning the activities and policies of campus residence halls, dining halls, and more than 175 registered student organizations. Sixteen University buildings are listed on the National Register of Historical Places.

UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE MEASURES OF SUCCESS • Best buy and more –The Princeton Review’s 2005 annual college guide, The Best 357 Colleges, gave UD four-star rankings for campus life and selectivity. Only about 15 percent of American undergraduate institutions are included in the guide.

that they asked permission to share the report on it with other universities as a model. • UD’s Elementary Teacher Education Program received top ratings from the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI), the specialty organization of the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education, the only accrediting organization approved by the U.S. Department of Education. The ACEI report said, in part, “The overall assessment plan was well done…as most universities/colleges are beginning their assessment plans, the University of Delaware is probably ahead of most. Very well done.” • The school psychology graduate program in the College of Human Services, Education and Public Policy’s (CHEP) was named one of the best in the nation by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP). The three-year, specialist-level graduate program was scrutinized by NASP as part of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) accreditation process. Of all programs evaluated in fall 2003, UD’s was the only one to receive an ‘A’ in every area evaluated, and according to NASP, that is “extremely rare.” Only 57 percent of the reviewed programs received full approval. • UD’s Department of Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Management was ranked seventh among the top 25 hospitality programs in the country, tying with one of the oldest such programs in the nation and placing ahead of many wellknown programs. The survey, published in 2002 in the Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Education, gave UD high marks for its faculty, curriculum and students. Vita Nova, the restaurant in the Trabant University Center run by HRIM students, won the honor for best lunch buffet in Delaware Today’s 2004 Best of Delaware competition. One of the most popular restaurants in Newark, Vita Nova is consistently booked well in advance. • In the 2005 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Graduate Schools,” three UD graduate programs were ranked among the top 10 in the nation: physical therapy, fourth; and urban affairs and chemical engineering, both ranked ninth. In the 2006 edition, chemical engineering held on to its ninth place ranking, the College of Engineering was ranked 42nd and the School of Education was ranked 39th.

• The University of Delaware is the 11th best value in the country for out of state students at public colleges, and 13th best for in-state students, according to a listing of the top 100 schools in the January 2006 issue of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine. According to the magazine’s article on best values in public colleges, “Our exclusive survey of U.S. public college and universities shines a spotlight on schools that combine great academics with reasonable costs.” For its rankings, Kiplinger’s looked at several measures of academic quality, including admission rates, student-faculty ratios, percentage of faculty with the highest degrees in their field, amount spent on instruction for each student, amount spent on library facilities and four- and six-year graduation rates. • UD was rated a “best value” in the 2003 edition of Kaplan’s The Unofficial, Unbiased Insider’s Guide to the 320 Most Interesting Colleges.

LOCATION Our location in Newark, Delaware, provides a comfortable small town college atmosphere. Newark, with a population of approximately 30,000, is midway between New York City and Washington, DC, and in close proximity to both Philadelphia and Baltimore. You can enjoy the educational and recreational advantages of these major metropolitan areas, as well as the white sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast or the

38

ski resorts of the Poconos. The campus is only minutes from Interstate 95 in one of the most heavily populated corridors in the country, and the University is an active participant in a state that is one of the nation's top corporate centers. Our students and graduates are exposed to many research and internship opportunities just minutes from campus at major corporations such as the Bank of America, DuPont Co., Hercules, ICI Americas Inc., Morgan Bank, Chase Manhattan, and a host of others. In addition, more than 700 companies regularly recruit employees from the University's graduating senior class, putting the University of Delaware among the top schools in the Mid-Atlantic area for career placement.

• The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) gave UD’s professional education programs an outstanding evaluation after visiting the campus in the fall of 2003. The team studied the overall organization of professional education and reviewed all UD’s programs that educate prospective teachers, administrators and school psychologists. Only about a third of the institutions offering professional education programs in the nation are NCATE accredited, and only about 20 NCATE-approved institutions have achieved an assessment as strong as the University of Delaware's. In addition, UD’s secondary social studies program in teacher education earned high praise from the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS). Reviewers there were so impressed with the program

U NIVERSITY OF DELAWARE • Careers and Colleges Magazine selected UD as one of its “Cool Schools,” calling it “academically rigorous” and one of the “underrated gems” among American colleges and universities. • Alumni and friends value UD–UD’s first major capital campaign, the Campaign for Delaware, which began in 1998 as a five-year, $225 million fundraising effort, far surpassed its original goal and generated more than $431 million. Since its inception, the Campaign has targeted key areas for funding: academic support through undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, discovery-based learning initiatives, improved library facilities, faculty support through endowed chairs and named professorships, facilities, equipment and unrestricted general support. The Campaign for Delaware has been successful in all these aspects and has, for example, made it possible to increase the number of endowed faculty positions from fewer than 10 to 106. University investments are now in excess of $1 billion, as recognized in a 2006 report of the National Association of College and University Business Officers. • Recognition by our peers–Some of the most influential groups in higher education today have great things to say about UD: • “Better than any University we are familiar with, Delaware has a clear sense of what it wants to be, namely, a University that offers a high quality undergraduate education with targeted areas of excellence in graduate education and research…. Today, the University is seen as a national model for the integration of information technology in every aspect of University life: teaching and learning, research and service, academic support and campus administration….” The evaluation team wrote that “these substantial achievements could not have happened without extraordinary leadership from the senior administration.” — Middle States Commission on Higher Education, April 2001 • “For several years now, both the members of the Boyer Commission and Reinvention Center constituents have been impressed and even inspired by the examples set by the University of Delaware in the reform and enrichment of undergraduate education. [UD’s Undergraduate Research Program is] one of the best in the country.” —Wendy Katkin, director of The Reinvention Center–The State University of New York at Stony Brook • Beautiful and well-maintained campus–UD was singled out by The Chronicle of Higher Education as an institution dedicated to maintaining and preserving its campus, in contrast to the national problem of deteriorating facilities for higher education. Descriptions of UD in college guides invariably mention the beauty of the campus: The Princeton Review said that “the majority of UD students are pleased with the quality of life on campus and rave about ‘absolutely the most gorgeous campus anywhere.’” The Fiske Guide to Colleges wrote that UD has “all that the traditional college portrait entails: solid academics, rowdy athletic traditions, Northeastern beauty and all. Delaware’s spacious 1,000-acre campus is an attractive mix of Colonial and modern geometric buildings.” • Undergraduate research at UD is a national model–At any given time, at least 600-700 undergraduates are actively involved in research on the UD campus. Two-thirds of the faculty—and 90 percent of the engineering and science faculty—regularly work with undergraduates in research. Each year, about 300 undergraduate researchers present papers and posters at UD's Undergraduate Research Symposium, and undergraduates are routinely included as authors or co-authors with their faculty mentor on about 50-60 professional publications and presentations each year. Several students have gone on to receive national recognition for their work. • UD students are responsible computer users–UD is a leader in instilling in students the importance of responsible computing behavior. Before students can open an e-mail account on the campus, they must pass an online test that out-

lines the rights and responsibilities of computer use. UD offers a special educational campaign, called “The Code of the Web,” to raise awareness about responsible computing use issues such as bandwidth abuse and copyright infringement. The humor-based campaign features UD’s award-winning mascot YoUDee as an old-time Western sheriff using catch phrases from the era to make serious points, and it has received a positive response from students and faculty alike. The campaign has been promoted widely on shuttle buses, T-shirts, posters and coffee mugs, as well as in commercials that run during previews in the campus movie theatre and between technology assistance videos played on the campus cable television network. In August 2003, The Chronicle of Higher Education wrote about the campaign. In May 2005, UD was host to James Spertus, vice president of the Motion Picture Association of America and director of its U.S. anti-piracy efforts, and Richard L. Taylor, MPAA senior vice president of external affairs and education, who spoke openly with students about the problems associated with the piracy of entertainment products on college campuses.

tures the University of Delaware in a 2004 case study about campuses that are highly regarded for their ability to align Information Technologies efforts and investments with institutional goals and priorities. • Responsible behavior –The University of Delaware’s aggressive campaign to fight binge drinking has won it national attention. Since the beginning of the campaign, surveys on high-risk drinking conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health show significant declines in destructive behaviors by UD students. Data indicate that students are drinking alcohol more moderately, drinking alcohol with the express purpose of getting drunk has decreased, fewer students report having hangovers, missing classes and doing something they later regret and there has been a decrease in incidents in which students were insulted by others, became involved in serious arguments or quarrels, were hit or assaulted, had personal property damaged, had their sleep or study interrupted, were expected to “baby-sit” a drunken friend or experienced an unwanted sexual advance.

• Leading by example–The EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research (ECAR) fea-

U NIVERSITY OF DELAWARE • In 2004, the Education Development Center’s Center for College Health and Safety presented its Presidents Leadership Group Award to UD President David P. Roselle in recognition of the fact that UD was the first in the country to adopt a policy of parental notification when students break campus rules, particularly if they involve potentially dangerous activities. • Supportive parents –Parents of UD students put their money where their pride is! The Council in Aid of Education recently released a report that ranks the University of Delaware number one nationally in giving by parents of students and alumni to a public university. • Marine excellence–UD’s College of Marine and Earth Studies earned high honors from a national Sea Grant college review team that, after a campus visit, said the UD program is “in all respects considered excellent.” UD’s program is “unique and one of a kind in terms of its administrative structure within the University, its management, its high level of research, its outreach and its translation of science to its constituents,” the team wrote. • When the Founding Fathers were young–The University of Delaware traces its origins to a small private academy founded by the Rev. Francis Alison in 1743. The Rev. Alison’s first class was a remarkable one, possibly the most distinguished of any other class in any school in America. The class of 10 went on to become statesmen, merchants and scholars of reputation. Three of them--George Read, Thomas McKean and James Smith—signed the Declaration of Independence, and Mr. Read also signed the Constitution. Those three names are being memorialized on three new residence halls on the Laird Campus, one of which, George Read Hall, opened for the 2005-06 academic year. • Genius Award-winners–Two UD alumni have won the prestigious MacArthur Fellowships—the so-called “genius award.” Jacqueline Jones, a 1970 graduate who is now Truman Professor of American Civilization and chair of the Department of History at Brandeis University, won the award in 1999, and Charles Lewis, a 1975 graduate and founder and executive director of the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Public Integrity, received the honor in 1998. Peter Jeffery, an assistant professor of music at UD from 1984-87, received a MacArthur Fellowship in 1987.

ATHLETIC SUPPORT SERVICES The Student Services for Athletes Program is designed to assist student-athletes to make the best possible academic and personal adjustment to the University of Delaware. The University is committed to both the academic and athletic excellence of all student-athletes. The coordinator of Student Services for Athletes works closely with coaches, faculty, and student services personnel to help student-athletes balance the demands of their academic responsibilities and participation in Blue Hen athletics. The Student Services for Athletes Program sponsors a fall orientation session for all new Blue Hen student-athletics.This session introduces students to information about the academic, administrative, social, and athletic community at the University of Delaware. In addition to orientation, workshops focusing on academic, personal, and career development are offered throughout the year. When a student-athlete discovers the need for assistance outside the classroom, he or she is assisted in obtaining a tutor at no personal cost. Advisement about how best to use tutoring time is also provided. The Student Services for Athletes Program monitors the academic progress of all Blue Hen athletes. Faculty provide information about current grades, class standing, and the nature of any difficulty a student-athlete may be encountering. If problems are discovered, individual conferences are held to develop strategies for alleviating them. There are times when a student-athlete may need help not directly provided by the Student Services for Athletes Program. When this occurs the coordinator of the program will assist the student-athlete in obtaining the best service from the most appropriate office on campus. Frequent referrals are made to academic advisement centers, the Center for Counseling, and the Academic Studies Assistance Program. The Student Services for Athletes Program is committed to having Blue Hen athletes become champions in the classroom as well as on the field.

ACADEMIC ADVANCEMENT OFFICE This office provides academic assistance in the area of study skills, time management, test taking, note taking and test anxiety. It also has a tutoring system for individuals and groups and a professional counseling center. This service is free and available to all interested students. COUNSELING CENTER This office offers individual counseling to all students free of charge in all areas pertaining to academics and career options, as well as assistance toward personal adjustments to college. CAREER SERVICES CENTER The University of Delaware Career Services Center provides an exceptional service to students in the areas of job interview preparation, resume development and career decisions. The annual Career Plans Survey indicates that over 90 percent of the students seeking employment have done so successfully. Students in many majors at the University are actively sought by major corporations.

MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES TEACHING AND LEARNING CENTER The center is designed to assist students encountering difficulties with math. This center is similar to the Writing Center where a student can either drop in or make an appointment for any problems they may have in the math area.

READING STUDY CENTER The Reading Student Center offers diagnostic and remedial services in areas of academic achievement and literacy. Any reading or learning problems can be evaluated through this program. Students can find help with the basics of reading, handwriting and spelling.

THE WRITING CENTER The Writing Center provides a place for students to seek help regarding any paper, thesis or writing project. Full-time professors are available at the center to assist the student free of charge.

• Accreditation–The Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics is one of only 400 institutions throughout the world accredited by AACSB International, the premier accrediting agency for bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting programs. Other agencies that accredit UD programs include the Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology Inc.; the American Dietetic Association, Commission on Accreditation/Approval for Dietetics Education; the American Physical Therapy Association, Commission on Accreditation in Education; the American Psychological Association, Committee on Accreditation; the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education; the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences; the National Association of Schools and Music, Commission on Accreditation; the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education; and the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.

ACADEMICS & ATHLETICS The University of Delaware offers student-athletes an exceptional opportunity. As a medium-sized University, it offers the advantages of a small college with reasonable class size, particularly in a student's major, while also providing course selection in over 100 academic majors. Additionally the University offers an excellent support system designed to assist all students. The coaching staff at Delaware encourages team members to take advantage of the following programs:
