2011-12 Detroit Women’s Golf Spring Preview

Just look at the numbers and it is easy to see why the Detroit women’s golf team had a successful fall season and is looking at big things for the spring. Three top-5 finishes. One tournament victory. 14 individual top 20 finishes - with seven posting top-10 efforts and a golfer taking home medalist honors twice. “We did some good things out there and I was very happy with the fall and what we accomplished,” said head coach Terri Anthony-Ryan. “We played four tournaments and everyone was able to play and contribute.” Detroit won the Detroit Titans Fall Classic, setting two program records with a 287 in the final round and a 590 for the weekend. UDM also claimed third at the NIU Huskie Classic and tied for fourth at the Dayton Fall Invitational. Without a question, the Titan who had the best fall was sophomore Lindsey Lammers. The second-year Titan was in the top 11 in all four events, winning at NIU and Dayton, while finishing runner-up at the Detroit Fall Classic. Even in the tournament that she tied for 11th, she ended up carding her career-best 54-hole total of 229 at the Redbird Invitational. Lammers set a school record with a six-under 67 at the Detroit Fall Classic and ended the event with another school record and a 36hole total of 140. Seven of her nine rounds of golf were in the 70’s or lower as she ended the non-traditional season with a team-best 74.4 average. “Just a great fall and a great way to get her name out there for the spring,” added Ryan.

Detroit had some great performances to back up Lammers. Freshman Olivia Richards played in three tournaments and had five of six rounds in the 70’s – with three top-20 finishes – and was second on the team with a 77.3 average. If it wasn’t for Lammers’ school record 140, Richards would have set the record as she fired a 144 to take third in the Titans’ home event. “To get the results we got from Olivia as a freshman in her first few tournaments is simply great,” said Ryan. “How many freshmen in our history have come in and put up 70’s.” Junior’s Collette Hansen and Allison Sears were right behind those two in average in the fall with an 80.5 and 82.4, respectively. Hansen had two top-10 marks, including a career-best 151 at the Detroit Fall Classic. Sears twice carded a career-best 76 and tallied another career-high with a 244 at the Redbird Invitational. “Collette was very steady for us and I look forward to seeing her improve and leading this team.” said Ryan. “Allison started the fall healthy and ready to make an impact and she did that for us.” Senior Liz Zouzal, junior Danyelle Kauble and sophomore Christina Thorne each had their moments throughout the fall. Zouzal played in three events and ended with her best tying for 14th at the Detroit Fall Classic. Kauble played in three tournaments in her first year with the team and ended her fall season with a career-best 74 in the home event, while Thorne saw action in all four fall events and was fifth on the team with an 83.2 average. “All three played well and put in a lot of work this fall to get better,” said Ryan. “Liz is a senior who brings great leadership. Danyelle played well after just transferring in and Christina was much improved compared to her freshman year.” Two other freshmen that surprised in their limited playing time were twins, Jessica Mallender and Rebecca Mallender. Jessica fired back-to-back rounds in the 70’s at the Detroit Fall Classic and finished her only event tying for 14th with a 156. Rebecca showed her improvement by taking 10 strokes off her opening round of collegiate golf and placing 27th in the same event. “I was very pleased with the way they have performed since they got here. Jessica really showed that she can play and Rebecca came back to have a good day in just her second round of the fall,” stated Ryan.

2011-12 Detroit Women’s Golf

Titans Home Course - Western Golf & Country Club The Titan women’s golf team is grateful to the members and staff of the Western Golf and Country Club, who graciously allow the team to use the club as its home course. Located in the nearby suburb of Redford Township and having celebrated its 75th Anniversary in 2001, Western is one of the most historic country clubs in the State of Michigan. Early in 1926, the foundation for the club was laid with the solicitation of members, the construction of a clubhouse and the hand of famed architect Donald Ross designing the course. The unofficial opening of the golf course was held on June 9, 1927. Western’s 18 holes were laid out among rolling hills and the meandering Rouge River within its 6,808 yards. The course is challenging, demanding, and yet playable. Ross’ trademarks are evident in Western’s pure layout and small, subtle greens. The course is heavily tree-lined, and strategically placed ponds, bunkers and doglegs provide different decisions on each hole. Several elevated tees and greens accentuate the character of the golf course. In 1945, the B.E. Taylor Company, a metropolitan Detroit land developer, agreed to sell the club to its members, and Western continued to grow in stature. The Michigan Open was held at Western in August of 1952 as the club began its quest to host many major championships. It was the Open’s second appearance at Western. The Motor City Open was staged at Western G&CC in 1956, and was won by Bob Rosburg in a playoff against Ed Furgol. The winning score was the highest of any PGA event during a 15-month span, attesting to the difficulty with which Western can play, even for the pros. The club also hosted the Western Open in 1960 and, once again, a playoff was needed to determine a champion. This time, Stan Leonard defeated Art Wall in one extra hole to win the tournament championship. The club has since discontinued hosting tour events, but it remains the site for many PGA, USGA and GAM sectional and regional events. Among its noted membership are past Michigan Amateur Champions Chuck Kocsis (1933-34) and Bud Stevens (1959-63-65). Stevens is also a five-time winner of the GAM Championship. Of Western, legendary golf professional Walter Hagen once wrote: “In my long experience with golf courses, it has been my observation that any course laid out by Mr. Ross tests the mettle of any golfer, be he one of the world’s best, either amateur or professional. And this is one of the chief reasons why I was much in favor of the Western course as the scene of the big (1928 match) between (U.S. Open Champion) Johnny Farrell and myself. It is my opinion that the Western course is a very excellent test of golf, both for finesse and accuracy.” Brandon DiPaola serves as Western’s head golf professional and Jason Iding is the Manager. The annual Detroit Titans Invitational is hosted at Western Golf and Country Club.

2011-12 Detroit Women’s Golf Practice Facilities

One of Calihan Hall’s latest additions was unveiled on Feb. 16, 2008 with the official dedication of the Wayne Wheeler Titan Golf Practice Center. Located in historic Calihan Hall, the Wheeler Practice Center has been a tremendous addition for the UDM men’s and women’s golf teams. Built exclusively to benefit the Detroit golf program, the center includes a putting/ chipping green along with two hitting areas, allowing the Titans the opportunity to work on their games any time of the year. The Detroit golfers can also use the new JC Video system to analyze their swings as they get ready for their next tournament. An avid golfer himself, Wheeler has become a great supporter of the Titan program, and his major donation helped make the new indoor practice center a reality. Wheeler is the founder and CEO of Data Consulting Group, which is the title sponsor of the annual UDM women’s golf tournament. “The University is blessed with a special group of friends and alumni who’ve been extremely generous and supportive of Titan Athletics over the years. Wayne Wheeler certainly fits into that classification with the way he has adopted our golf program,” UDM Associate Vice President and Athletic Director Keri Gaither said. “The new Wayne Wheeler Golf Center has already become a great asset to our teams.” A reception and dedication of the Golf Center was held prior to the formal opening, with many of UDM’s athletic staff, coaches and golfers along with their families, a number of former Titan golfers and other boosters. “To have our own indoor practice facility on campus is really a tremendous advantage for our teams,” UDM Director of Golf and men’s coach Mark Engel said. “I don’t think there’ve been many days all winter where the center hasn’t been in use. The opportunity for us to practice inside if it’s cold or there’s bad weather, especially the short game, will really pay dividends.” “Wayne’s generosity and friendship is overwhelming,” women’s golf coach Terri Anthony-Ryan added. “I think he remembered his beginnings as a golfer and what practice meant to the way he was able to improve his game, and he understood what this practice center would mean to our program. He has really become a great friend to our golfers.” While the Wheeler Practice Center is relatively new, plans are in place to expand the practice center to include a short game area. The Titans also utilize the Beech Woods Golf Course in Southfield. The facility is a nine-hole, 2,778 yard, par 35 course that includes a 50-tee, lighted driving range with 30 tees covered and heated. The heated tees are a huge benefit to the program during the winter and rainy weather.

2011-12 Detroit Women’s Golf Head Coach Terri Anthony-Ryan Terri Anthony-Ryan, a noted golf professional in the Metro Detroit area for the last two decades, is in her seventh season as head coach of the women’s golf program. She joined the Detroit staff in July of 2005 and clearly has the program heading in the right direction. The last two years have seen the Titans bridge the gap from a contending team to a championship squad as the red, white and blue were runner-up at the Horizon League Championship in 2011, and took home their first Horizon League title and a berth in the NCAA Central Regional in 2010. For that accomplishment, she was voted 2010 Horizon League Coach of the Year by her peers at season’s end. During her time at Detroit, Anthony-Ryan has coached 10 All-Conference selections, seven All-Horizon League Tournament honorees, nine Academic All-Americans, a Horizon League Medalist and one HL Newcomer of the Year. Her teams have secured seven tournament titles, while individuals have captured 12 medalist honors. Just this past fall, the Titans tuned up for the 2012 spring season by winning the Detroit Titans Fall Classic with a school record 287 in the final round and a UDM record 590 for the tournament. The team also claimed third at the NIU Huskie Classic and tied for fourth at Dayton. She also guided sophomore Lindsey Lammers to two medalist titles at NIU and Dayton, as well as a runner-up effort in a school record 140 at the Titans’ Fall Classic. Anthony-Ryan also serves as the head golf pro at the Beechwoods and Evergreen Hills Golf Courses in nearby Southfield, a position she’s held since 1989. During her professional career, she has also been the head pro at Valley View Golf Course (Shepherd, MI), and has been an assistant at Western Golf & Country Club (Redford Township, MI), Whispering Willows Golf Course (Livonia, MI) and Doral Country Club (Miami, FL). Her background and relationships built at Western helped turn the club into the Titans’ home course as well as the site of the team’s annual invitational tournament. In her continuing duties with the Southfield courses, Anthony-Ryan oversees all aspects of the pro shop operation, organizes 12 annual city golf tournaments – including the Southfield championship – and oversees a staff of nearly two dozen individuals. Anthony-Ryan is a past member of the Michigan PGA Board of Directors and other PGA committees (1991-2002) and has been a member of the Midnight Golf Board of Directors since 2002. Voted Michigan PGA Teacher of the Year in 1996, many of her proteges have played high school and college golf. Anthony-Ryan coached the men’s golf team for one year (1988) at Henry Ford Community College. Additionally, she coached girls basketball at Redford Union High School from 1981-89.

Volunteer Coach Marni Achterhoff

After a distinguished playing career at Detroit, Marni Achterhoff is in her first year as a volunteer assistant coach with her alma mater. “Marni is going to help us out tremendously this year,” said head coach Terri AnthonyRyan. “She knows the team and she knows what we want to accomplish as a program. Everyone respects her and I think with her back, that will only strengthen our chances for another Horizon League title.” A four-year letterwinner at UDM, Achterhoff graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor’s degree in secondary education and wrapped up her undergraduate studies by student teaching this past fall. She was part of the team’s first-ever Horizon League championship in 2010 as she helped league the squad to victory by taking second with a 229, which included a career-best 72 on the opening 18. That HL title also propelled the Titans to their first NCAA Regional appearance. Achterhoff took part in 80 rounds of golf for the Titans in her career, posting 15 top-20 finishes and six top-10 efforts. She finished in the top 20 at the league championship all four years and took home All-HL Tournament honors as a junior. She earned the Dad Butler Award at the 2011 Titan Academic & Athletic Honors Luncheon, given for determination in recovering from an athletic injury, and was a four-time member of the Detroit Athletic Director’s Honor Roll. She was also a member of the Horizon League’s Fall and Spring Academic Honor Roll and was selected to the National Golf Coaches Association’s Women’s All-American Scholar Team as a junior and senior.

2011-12 Detroit Women’s Golf 2011 Year In Review

It may not have ended in another title, but the women’s golf team once again showed that they are championship contenders and will continue to be for years to come as the Titans ended the season with a runner-up effort at the Horizon League Championship. “It was a good year and I was proud of the way the ladies trained and performed throughout the season,” said head coach Terri Anthony-Ryan. “We fell a bit short of our goal by not winning the championship, but they accomplished a lot, both on and off the course with their play and grades.” Detroit battled Butler for the top spot in the HL and its chance at a second consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament, but just fell short of that goal. After taking the lead after round one, Detroit fell to second after 36 holes just four strokes off the lead. The final round saw UDM get within two, but the red, white and blue could not get over that deficit as they finished second, 17 shots ahead of a third-place Loyola squad. The finish was not new to the Titan program as Detroit and the Horizon League is used to seeing the team among the tournament leaders. The second-place finish was the fifth straight year that the Titans were in the top three at the conference championship. The team also received the 2011 Team Excellence Award for having the highest grade point average (3.453) for the past year, as well as the Horizon League “Raise Your Sights” award, which recognizes the highest men’s and women’s team GPAs for Horizon League sponsored sports. On the year, Detroit averaged a 326.1 per round in its 27 rounds of golf, winning the Titan Challenge vs. IPFW in Florida and the IPFW Spring Classic. Along with its second place finish at the conference meet, UDM was runner-up at the Dayton Fall Invitational and the Titans Invitational, while placing in the top five at the Zippy Invitational (4th), Don Benbow Invite (4th) and the Falcons Invitational (5th). The season marked the end of two Titan careers, two studentathletes who shined on the links and in the classroom in seniors Marni Achterhoff and Alainna Stefan. The two Titans helped bridge Detroit from contenders to champions. Prior to 2011 UDM President’s Award Winner the pair’s arrival in the Motor City, UDM had never shot under Alainna Stefan 1000 in its first three HL championships, but with those two in the line-up, the Titans were under 1000 for the last four league events with an average score of 975 and the school’s first title in 2010. “You just couldn’t ask for two better student-athletes on your team,” said Anthony-Ryan. “They both led by example and were terrific students. We couldn’t have won last year’s title without them finishing 1-2.” Achterhoff was in the top 20 in all four conference championships, and when the time came to turn in her best performance, she was ready as she placed second two years ago to earn All-Tournament honors. Her score helped Detroit secure its first championship in school history. In that event, she shot a career best 72 in the first round and a three-round career-low of 229. In her career, she had 16 top-20 finishes, including seven times in the top 10. She was also a four-year member of the Detroit Athletic Director’s Honor Roll and was named to the National Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar Team as a junior. She was also a member of SAAC for three years, serving as the Vice President her senior year.

Stefan ended her career as one of the best golfers in school history. A two-time All-Horizon League honoree as well as a two-time All-Tournament performer, Stefan was honored with the 2011 President’s Award, given to UDM’s most outstanding senior student-athletes, who demonstrate what it means to be a true Titan. She led Detroit in stroke average for the third consecutive season with a 79.3 and was the top Titan at the Horizon League Championship taking fourth after carding a 238. She was the Titan top finisher in seven events and tied for the top spot on another three occasions. She won the Titan Challenge vs. IPFW, the Don Benbow Invite and the Titans Invitational, and was in the top 10 in seven of UDM’s 10 multi-team tournaments. In her career, Stefan was also an HL All-Academic Team selection as well as a National Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar Team honoree and a four time member of the Detroit Athletic Director’s Honor Roll. “Alainna is probably the best golfer we have had at Detroit, and Marni just bleeds red, white and blue and she truly loves the University,” added Anthony-Ryan. Despite the fact that both of those seniors will be leaving, Detroit saw three underclassmen step up on the year and put in some big performances. Sophomore Collette Hansen was third on the team with an 83.5 average garnering six top 20 finishes and a pair in the top 10. She was named the Horizon League Golfer of the Week after taking eighth at the Falcons Invitational and tied for 13th at the league tournament with a 251. She carded a career-best 74 in the first round at Dayton and also tallied a career-low three-round score of 243 (78, 79, 86) for 16th at the Zippy Invitational. “Collette took three strokes off her freshman year average and if she takes half of that off next year, she will be right there at the top of the league for us,” commented Anthony-Ryan. Freshmen Lindsey Lammers and Christina Thorne also came in right away and proved that they were ready to play. Lammers ended the year second on the team in stroke average with an 81.1 as she led or tied for the team lead four times. She was in the top 10 at the HL Championship with a 10th-place effort of 248, and overall, placed in the top 20 on seven occasions, including a runner-up mark at the IPFW Spring Invitational. Thorne was fifth on the squad with an 85.8 and tied for 24th at the conference event. She recorded two top 20 finishes placing 18th at the Dayton Invite – where she put in a career-best 74 in the final round – as well as tying for seventh with a career effort of 250 at the Titans Invitational. “Both freshmen really played well for us and it speaks a lot about them that they were in the line-up at the Horizon League Championship,” said Anthony-Ryan. Two other golfers gave Detroit some good performances on the year and will be back to compete for a spot in the line-up next season in junior Liz Zouzal and sophomore Allison Sears. Zouzal came back from redshirting last year to compete in six events posting two top 20 efforts. She placed 17th at IPFW with a two-round score of 176 and tied for 10th at the Titans Invitational tallying a 255. Meanwhile, Sears saw action in six events with her best finish of 24th at Detroit’s home tournament. “Liz came back a lot stronger this year and that is just going to set up a big senior year for her,” said Anthony-Ryan. “Allison worked hard all year and improved her game and that kind of commitment is what this team is all about.”

Four-year letterwinner and one of the Titan leaders, Marni Achterhoff.

2011-12 Detroit Women’s Golf 2010 Horizon League Championship

The 2010 season can be summed up in one phrase - We Are The Champions. It only took the Detroit program six seasons since its inception in 2004 to win its first Horizon League Championship and the Titans did so in record form. Detroit set a school record with an opening score of 300 in the first round of play as the red, white and blue played through rain to win the title, carding a 943 (300-324-319) last April at the Kearney Hill Links in Lexington, KY, the site of the 1997 U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship. They opened up a 10-shot lead over the field by firing that 300, but UDM saw its advantage shrink to just two shots at the end of 36 holes. The Titans poured it on in the final round and posted an 11-stroke victory over Youngstown State, their closest pursuer. The championship weekend saw Alainna Stefan lead Detroit to victory by taking medalist honors with a 226 (73-7776). She was also named first team All-Horizon League and All-Tournament. Joining her on the All-Tournament team was Marni Achterhoff, who finished with a 229 (72-81-76) for second place. As a freshman, Collette Hansen earned 15th at the league tournament, while seniors Rachel McHenry (252) and Alex Aversa (253) left Detroit with a ring on their fingers finishing in 19th and 20 place, respectively. The victory sent the Titans to their first NCAA field, where UDM placed 23rd at the Central Regional, held at Otter Creek Golf Club in Columbus, IN. The Titans also became the first Horizon League team to ever to appear in a women’s golf Regional. Seeded 23rd at the regional, Detroit maintained that position on the leader board throughout the tournament, opening play on with a 352. In blustery conditions a day later, UDM carded a 354 and finishing the tournament with a 358 on the final 18. The field included some of the best golf teams in the nation with 16 schools ranked in the nation’s Top 50, including regional winner in fifth-ranked USC. Stefan led Detroit as she came home tied for 91st place individually with a 251 (87-78-86). Aversa and McHenry were next in line for the Titans, tied at 272.

2011-12 Detroit Women’s Golf The Horizon League

In its 33rd season of operation in the 2011-12 academic year, the Horizon League continues to aspire toward its goal of being one of the nation’s leading athletics conferences while being recognized as a leader in the development of student-athletes as leaders and role models. The Horizon League membership features ten public and private institutions that have impres-sive academic reputations and a storied tradition of broadbased athletic programs. Membership includes Butler University, Cleveland State University, the University of Detroit Mercy, the University of Illinois at Chicago, Loyola University Chicago, Valparaiso University, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Wright State University and Youngstown State University. The Horizon League’s primary focus is on add-ing value to the educational experience through its four platforms: athletic performance, academic achievement, community outreach, and personal responsibility and accountability. It is the League’s belief that athletics is a powerful and visible resource tool that can be used to enhance studentathletes’ collegiate experience. The Horizon League’s goals are to enhance the holistic university experience for the student-athlete, to create an affiliation of institutions with similar athletic goals, and to adhere to the principals of integrity, diversity, excellence and growth. The Horizon League sponsors competition in 19 sports - nine for men (baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, swimming and diving, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field and tennis) and ten for women (basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, tennis and volleyball). The League receives automatic bids to NCAA championships in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, women’s volleyball, and for the first time in League history, women’s golf. The Horizon League is headquartered in Indianapolis, the “Amateur Sports Capital of the World,” with offices in the Pan

American Plaza (201 S. Capitol Avenue), located a block from Lucas Oil Stadium and just minutes from Conseco Fieldhouse, the State Capitol Building, Victory Field (home of the Indianapolis Indians) and the NCAA national office. A PROUD HISTORY Founded on June 16, 1979, as the Midwestern City Conference with six charter members, the League changed its name to the Midwestern Collegiate Conference in 1985 and added women’s sports for the 1986-87 academic year. Charter members of the conference included current members Butler and Loyola as well as the Evansville, Oklahoma City, Oral Roberts and Xavier. Among other current members, Detroit joined in 1980, and Cleveland State, UIC, Green Bay, Milwaukee and Wright State came aboard in 1994 (along with Northern Illinois University) in the largest non-merger conference expansion in history. Youngstown State joined in 2001 and Valparaiso in 2007. On June 4, 2001, the Horizon League unveiled its current name and ushered in a new dynamic direction that has brought the League closer to its stated goal of being one of the nation’s top ten collegiate athletic conferences with a focus on enhancing the student-athletes’ experience by upgrading the League’s market and competitive positions.

The Mission Inn Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills, FL, will once again serve as the site for the HL Championships. Men’s soccer has tasted victory in seven out of the last nine years (Milwaukee 2002-05, UIC 2006-08), with UIC just one win away from the College Cup in 2007. In 2011, Butler was consistently ranked in the top 10 of the nation, earning the No. 13 national seed after becoming the last unbeaten team in the country. In softball, League teams won a game in the national tournament four straight years earlier in the decade (UIC 2002, 2004; Wright State 2003; Green Bay 2005) while advancing into the second round in women’s soccer three of the last six seasons (Detroit 2004, Milwaukee 2005-06). Butler’s Victoria Mitchell became the League’s first NCAA individual champion when she won the 3,000-meter steeple-chase at the 2005 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

tee (SAAC) also has continued a tradition of working with youth in Indianapolis during its annual summer meeting. In addition, SAAC is partnering with Special Olympics, putting on events for olym-pians in each community. Several League men’s basketball coaches coached barefoot to support Samaritan’s Feet and Coaches vs. Cancer initiatives, and the League’s schools and fans donate to Komen for the Cure for breast cancer awareness during its annual women’s basketball championship. On campus, student-athletes have raised money and awareness for such causes as breast cancer, diabetes and hurricane relief, while hosting blood drives, neighborhood clean-ups and Big Brother/Big Sister programs.

ACADEMIC SUCCESS Horizon League student-athletes also excel in the classroom as more than 500 have been named to the Academic Honor Roll each of the past nine semesters for carrying a grade-point average of 3.2 or better, including more than 700 for the last four semesters. 24 student-athletes were named to ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-District teams in 2010-11, while six earned Academic All-America honors.

SPORTSMANSHIP One of the Horizon League’s points of emphasis is fostering collegial environments for competi-tion among student-athletes, coaches, administrators and fans in a pro-active approach. Among the vehicles is the Ethical Conduct Pledge, which is signed each season by studentathletes, coaches, officials, and campus and League administrators. Its purpose is to make all the involved groups aware of the Horizon League expectations of behavior during conference events.

COMMUNITY SERVICE In addition to its athletics success, the Horizon League has secured a well-earned reputation for its community service initiatives. Each January, member institutions partner with local elementary schools for an art, music and essay contest highlighting the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with winners recognized at League games on the weekend of MLK Day. The Horizon League Student-Athlete Advisory Commit

DEMOGRAPHICS Horizon League institutions boast a combined enrollment of more than 130,000 plus nearly a quarter-million living alumni centered in the League’s Midwest footprint. League media markets include five of the nation’s top 35 in Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Indianapolis and Milwaukee, covering more than ten million television households and encompassing more than nine percent of the nation’s television audience.

2011-12 Detroit Women’s Golf This Is Detroit

Having celebrated its tricentennial in 2001, Greater Detroit has the best of the old and the most promising of the new. From Greektown to Bricktown, Detroit has it all. The oldest city in the Midwest, Detroit was discovered in 1701 and has since become the center of business and recreation for millions. It is the largest city in Michigan and the 11th largest in the United States. Encompassing three counties — Wayne, Oakland and Macomb — the Metropolitan Detroit area spans 2,026 square miles and is home to 4.4 million people, nearly one million of whom live within the City of Detroit. In 2010, the city had a population of 713,777 and ranked as the 18th most populous city in the United States. At its peak in 1950, the city was the fifth-largest in the United States. Detroit’s vibrant, 75-acre Civic Center is a riverfront mecca for convention, entertainment, festival and sporting activities. Home to Cobo Conference/Exhibition Center and Arena, Joe Louis Arena and Philip A. Hart Plaza, the Civic Center is adjacent to some of the area’s finest hotels, top-notch restaurants and the famous Renaissance Center. Cobo Conference/Exhibition Center underwent a $200 million expansion, which was completed in 1989 and increased the facility’s exhibit space to 720,000 square feet, making it one of the nation’s largest convention centers. Renaissance Center, now the world headquarters for General Motors, is the city’s largest office complex, with seven gleaming towers of activity located on the Detroit riverfront. The 73-story Marriott Hotel is housed within this symbol of downtown development. Long known as the automobile capital of the world, the Detroit area is headquarters to all of the major automobile companies. While a lot of the area’s industry centers around the “horseless carriage,” Detroit is more than a smokestack town. Home to 16 of the Fortune 1000 firms, greater Detroit ranks sixth among U.S. cities in total spendable income. A short walk from the riverfront and the rigors of business is the enjoyment of exciting ethnic nightlife, known to Detroiters as Greektown. A two-block area of authentic Greek food and entertainment, Greektown became an even more invigorating locale in recent years with the addition of the Greektown Casino, one of three major casinos operating near downtown. One can enjoy art and scan the shelves that house 2.5 million books in the Detroit Public Library; and experience Michigan’s Underground Railroad movement at the Museum of African-American History.

Titan Hall Of Fame

UDM established its’ Sports Hall of Fame in 1977 in order to honor those student-athletes, coaches and administrators who have helped develop the successful tradition of Titan Athletics. The Hall of Fame now has 112 members, following the 10 latest additions made on Homecoming Weekend on Jan. 26, 2010. The 2002 induction dinner was truly one to remember. The inductees included two of the Titans’ former basketball All-Americans, Terry Tyler and John Long – or Thunder and Lightning, as they were affectionately known during their playing days – as well as the 1960 Titan football team as a unit. L-R: Adam Walicki, Joe Kopicki, Kim Jess, Pat Adams, Ken Dubois, Additionally, the beautiful Mike Pesci, Maria Pandele (Not Pictured: Jermaine Jackson, new Hall of Fame display in Rashad Phillips, Cassandra Pack) the Calihan Hall lobby was The 2010 Titan Hall of Fame Class was inducted at halftime of the unveiled that night for a men’s basketball game against Wright State on Jan. 26, 2010. crowd which would fill the arena’s main floor during the induction dinner. Long and Tyler were part of one of the winningest eras of Titan basketball, having helped their team to an 86-25 record over their four years combined. They helped the Titans to an NCAA Tournament berth in 1977, and an NIT appearance one year later. Long was the only player ever to lead the Titans in scoring for four straight varsity seasons, and he’s still the secondleading point producer in school history. Tyler, meanwhile, is the all-time Detroit leader for blocked shots in a game, a season and a career. He is also second in career field goal percentage and sixth in scoring. The pair’s old coach, none other than Dick Vitale, was the keynote speaker at his former players’ induction dinner. The present-day ESPN/ABC telecaster kept the audience captivated for more than an hour with his memories of coaching the Titans. The 1960 football squad became the first team ever to be inducted into the Hall of Fame en masse. That team finished the season 7-2 – the winningest U-D record of the post-World War II era. Two of those victories, over Cincinnati and Xavier, came by shutout. Future pro stars Larry Vargo, Bruce Maher, Steve Stonebreaker and Jerry Gross were all part of the 1960 Titan roster. The most recent induction class included four former basketball players – Joe Kopicki, Jermaine Jackson, Rashad Phillips and, from the women’s team, Cassandra Pack – as well as former stars from baseball (Pat Adams and Mike Pesci), cross country/track and field (Ken Dubois and Kim Jess), golf (Adam Walicki) and tennis (Maria Pandele).

2011-12 Detroit Women’s Golf

Associate Vice President & Athletic Director Keri Gaither was appointed as University of Detroit Mercy’s Director of Athletics and Associate Vice President in May of 2007, less than six months after being asked to serve as Interim Athletic Director. Soon after taking the helm of Titan athletics, Gaither announced the expansion of the Detroit Titans Division I sports program from 16 to 19 teams with the addition of men’s lacrosse, women’s lacrosse and men’s tennis. In her first two years, Gaither also expanded the athletic staff by adding eight full-time positions to the department, directed the building and completion of a new $1.6 million all-purpose synthetic turf field and track, and was responsible for the hiring of men’s basketball coach Ray McCallum, women’s basketball coach Autumn Rademacher, and softball coach Sunny Jones. Gaither also completed a successful fundraising campaign for the renovation of the men’s basketball office suite, press conference room as well as the addition of a new film room. Other projects that have been completed in her tenure is a brand new basketball court dedicated to Dick Vitale, the Titan Tennis Complex and a new grass field to accommodate the lacrosse and soccer teams. Gaither was recognized for her strong leadership as UDM’s Director of Athletics when she was appointed to the University of Detroit Mercy’s (UDM) senior leadership team as a member of the Associate Vice President’s group in June of 2007. For the three years preceding her appointment, Gaither served as second in command for the Titan Athletic Department and also supervised nine women’s varsity sports as the Senior Athletic Director. During her tenure in that position, Gaither played an instrumental role in the planning and implementation of women’s golf in 2004 when it became UDM’s 16th varsity team. She has also served in several key administrative roles for Athletics, including stints as Senior Woman Administrator and Director of Business Operations. Gaither Chaired the Detroit Local Organizing Committee (DLOC) for the 2009 NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four which was played in front of a record-setting crowd of 72,922 at Ford Field in Detroit as UDM served as the host institution. As the DLOC Chair, Gaither provided strong leadership for the DLOC and maintained ultimate responsibility for the local operations of the Final Four event. Gaither held the same position, in addition to being designated Tournament Director, for the 2008 NCAA Men’s Basketball Midwest Regional. As a current member of the Horizon League’s Executive Council, Gaither is actively involved with League operations. She currently serves on the League’s Men’s Basketball Strategic Planning Committee and has served on both the finance and television committees. In July of 2010, Gaither was appointed a new member of the Executive Committee of the Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association. She is one of just 13 members serving on the Committee, which works on behalf of the membership of the D1AAA, in addition to its President and five other officers. Gaither was also appointed to the NCAA Minority Opportunities and Interests Committee (MOIC) in September of 2009. As one

of six Division I members on the 15-person committee, Gaither is currently in year two of a four-year term. The MOIC was formed to review issues related to the interests of ethnic minorities and women with a focus on education and welfare of minority student-athletes, as well as the enhancement of opportunities for ethnic minorities and women in coaching, athletics administration, officiating and the NCAA governance structure. In March of 2008, Gaither was presented with the Phenomenal Women’s Ashley Gray Legacy Award by the University of Detroit Mercy’s Student Programming Board. This award was presented for her outstanding contribution toward the growth and development of students as the Director of Athletics at UDM. Gaither was also honored in September of 2008 when she was named one of Crain’s Detroit Business’ “2008 Women to Watch” for her goals and initiatives in the Detroit Titans athletics program and her leadership in serving as chair of Detroit’s Local Organizing Committee for the 2009 NCAA Final Four. While a member of the 2006 UDM Self-Study Steering Committee for NCAA Athletic Certification, Gaither also served on the Equity and Student-Athletic Welfare Sub-Committee and was designated the campus liaison during the certification process. Shortly after the University received its full certification in April of 2007, Gaither was asked by the NCAA to serve as a Peer-Review Team Member. Past University appointments include chairing UDM’s prioritization sub-committee and serving on various search committees. She is a past Board Member for the University of Detroit Mercy’s Women’s Studies Program and served on the Women’s Studies Program Development Sub-committee. She also participated as a member of the Tourism Action Group (TAG) Hospitality Committee, a group organized by the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitor Bureau dedicated to training the hospitality industry for Detroit-area events such as the 2005 MLB All Star Game and Super Bowl XL. In 2006, the Titan Athletic Director completed the NCAA’s inaugural Leadership Institute for Ethnic Minority Females, a leadership development program sponsored by the NCAA Office for Diversity and Inclusion and the Minority Opportunities and Interests Committee. The Leadership Institute, designed to address the critical shortage of senior-level minority administrators at NCAA member institutions and conference offices, prepares diverse leaders through a 12-month leadership training and skills development experience. Gaither served as a past steering committee member of the Women’s Leadership Symposium for Intercollegiate Athletics and recently assisted in coordinating its national leadership conference. Gaither is also a member of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletic Administrators (NACWAA), the Minority Opportunities Athletic Association (MOAA), and the Black Coaches Association (BCA). Graduating magna cum laude from UDM, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics. During her undergraduate studies, she was a two-time recipient of the College of Liberal of Arts’ Economics Student of the Year Award. Gaither and her husband, Brad Trombley, reside in Pleasant Ridge with their two children, Elliott (20), a junior at the University of Detroit Mercy majoring in Engineering, and daughter Kennedy (14).

included a 21-game winning streak during the 1976-77 season when the team participated in the NCAA Tournament. Included in the streak was a victory in Milwaukee over Al McGuire’s eventual national champion Marquette team. In April 1977, Vitale was named Athletic Director at Detroit and later that year was named the United Fund’s Detroit Man of the Year.

BYRNE WINS BIG BREAK Former Titan David Byrne made Detroit proud as he won the Golf Channel’s reality television show Big Break Indian Wells in July of 2011. The victory gave Byrne a number of prizes, with the best of all a chance to play on the PGA Tour giving him an automatic exemption to the 2012 Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Along with the opportunity to play in the 2012 Zurich Classic, he took home over $70,000 in cash, a paid trip for two back to the Indian Wells Golf Resort, an Adams golf endorsement deal and a $10,000 shopping spree to Dicks Sporting Goods. Byrne outperformed 10 other contestants on the 10-episode series that was shot at Indian Wells Golf Resort in Indian Wells, Calif. When he competes at the Zurich Classic, he will be the first Titan in school history to play on the PGA Tour. DETROIT TITAN ATHLETICS TO NAME COURT IN HONOR OF DICK VITALE Dick Vitale, ESPN broadcaster, college basketball ambassador and former Titan head coach and athletic director, received a tremendous honor from Detroit as the Titans announced that they will rename its basketball court in Calihan Hall after the legendary college basketball figure. The Dick Vitale Court at Calihan Hall will be dedicated in conjunction with a nationally-televised men’s basketball game against Big EAST foe St. John’s on December 5, 2011 on ESPN2. Vitale will be celebrating his 32nd anniversary of calling games for ESPN at the event having started on the sports television outlet on Dec. 5, 1979. Vitale coached at the University of Detroit (1973-77), compiling a winning percentage of .722 (78-30), which

The Dick Vitale Court at Calihan Hall project will feature a brand new, state-of-the-art hardwood floor for the home of the Detroit Titans men’s and women’s basketball teams. Fundraising for the project will include several other key improvements to the facility, including men’s basketball “Phase II” renovations, which began with new offices and upgraded locker room accommodations. APR REPORT HAS TITANS RATED HIGH The NCAA honored more than 900 Division I sports teams for their high marks academically last spring, including a pair of University of Detroit Mercy teams that achieved perfect scores. The Titan men’s golfers and men’s fencing teams each earned perfect 1000’s in the latest edition of the NCAA’s Public Recognition Awards. The NCAA announcement showed that 909 teams have earned the awards, based on their most recent multiyear Academic Progress Rates. These awards are given each year to teams scoring in the top 10 percent in each sport with their APRs. Through its innovative APR, which provides an annual scorecard of academic achievement, the NCAA tracks the classroom performance of studentathletes on every Division I sports team. A week later, Detroit brought home high marks in the NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate as 16 Titan teams were at or above the NCAA’s minimum standard (925) for the entire seven years since the association instituted the APR system (men’s and women’s lacrosse and men’s tennis are all entering their third year of varsity status at the school). The Detroit men’s fencing and men’s golf team each scored perfect multi-year 1000 APR scores, while women’s basketball, women’s golf and women’s tennis were all cited with perfect 1000 scores in the 200910 academic year. Nine UDM teams were above the national averages among their peers within their sport. The new report was based on data supplied for the 2006-07, 2007-08, 2008-09 and 2009-10 academic years.

Each year the NCAA honors select Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multi-year APR. This announcement is part of the overall Division I academic reform effort and is intended to highlight teams who demonstrate a commitment to academic progress and retention of student-athletes by achieving the top APRs within their respective sports. Specifically, these teams posted multi-year APRs in the top 10 percent of all squads in each sport. RAY MCCALLUM REPRESENTS USA BASKETBALL Sophomore Ray McCallum continued to find himself in the national spotlight. Over the summer, he participated as a counselor in the LeBron James Skills Academy and was one of 10 collegiate point guards invited to the Deron Williams Skills Academy. Then in August, he received an invitation to attend USA Basketball’s World University Games training camp, where he eventually made the final 12-man roster. The squad practiced and trained in Colorado Springs, Colo., before embarking to China on Aug. 8 to begin competition. Despite being the youngest athlete on the US squad, and a late addition to the original invitees to the training camp, he impressed coaches enough to make the team and represent the US. STUDENT-ATHLETES RECEIVE ACADEMIC ACCOLADES. Another year went by with a number of academic honor rolls and awards that University of Detroit Mercy studentathletes received. For the 2010-11 season, 155 studentathletes had cumulative GPA’s over a 3.0, while 16 of the Titans’ 19 varsity teams were also over a 3.0 GPA. It started with 210 Titans being named to the 2010 Athletic Director’s honor roll. The Titans then saw 58 members named to the Horizon League’s fall academic honor roll, while 54 appeared on the HL’s spring honor roll. In addition, 10 men’s lacrosse players were placed on the MAAC’s honor roll. As a team, both the Titan men’s and women’s track and field and cross country teams earned All-Academic Team honors from the USTFCCCA, while the UDM men’s and women’s tennis squads were tabbed ITA All-Academic Teams. The men’s golf program was also recognized as an All-Academic Team by the GCAA. Eight Titans (Taylor Hennrick, Vushaun Landrum, Susan Kalkstein, Katrina Oberski, Jeff Clarridge, Britt Pronk, Alainna Stefan, Erin Weldon) were selected to the Horizon League’s Spring All-Academic Team. Three Detroit student-athletes (Patrick Liederbach, Kirstin Mooney and Landrum) were tabbed All-HL Academic for the winter, while Lauren Roffey was named to the League’s AllAcademic team in the fall.

In lacrosse, four members of the women’s program earned their way onto the National Lacrosse Conference’s Academic All-League Team in Britany Busch, Anna Eidem, Corina Mahorn and Alycsa Valentine. In men’s lacrosse, 10 players were tabbed Academic All-MAAC in Brandon Davenport, John Dwyer, Brad Janer, Ty Maruyama, Jason McDonald, Chris Nemes, John Nowicki, Adam Parrottino, Nick Schesnuk and Wes Steen. Also individually, Jeff Clarridge of the men’s golf team was named a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar, while Marni Achterhoff, Alainna Stefan and Lindsey Lammers were honored as the National Golf Coaches Association’s Women’s All-American Scholar Team. COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT A PRIORITY FOR DETROIT The University of Detroit Mercy Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) did a great job as always in trying to help out the local community. Throughout the school year, SAAC got together for a number of community initiatives, including the highly successful Sandwich Bus. The event gives Titan student-athletes a chance to come together in preparing a lunch and distributing it to the local community. SAAC also helped raise money for the Michigan Special Olympics with a Pie In The Face Fundraiser during a men’s lacrosse game as well as hosting a coat drive during a men’s basketball game for Nardly Human Services, Inc. Other student-athletes were involved outside of the field and classroom too as men’s lacrosse players Brandon Davenport, Matt Lining and Adam Parrottino participated in a Habitat for Humanity project near Grosse Pointe, while men’s basketball standouts Eli Holman and Ray McCallum greeted attendees and showed support of the United Way and downtown Detroit at the annual Blocktoberfest. UDM also partnered with the Southeastern Michigan “Toys for Tots” during Thanksgiving Weekend where the Titans played host to the Legend’s Classic.
