SEASON OUTLOOK

2010 Wildcat Volleyball

Expectations are once again high in Durham as the volleyball team prepares for the 2010 season. The Wildcats finished last season as the hottest team in America East winning five of the final six regular-season matches. New Hampshire moved from outside playoff contention to the second over the final weeks of the regular season. UNH returns nine letterwinners and four starters from the 2009 roster. Head coach Jill Hirschinger, who enters her 15th season at UNH, has added four newcomers to an already deep roster. While New Hampshire said farewell to a trio of Wildcats that helped rewrite the record books in Kirsten Bates, Lindsay Fogarty and Kate Uitti; the core pieces are back for another run at an America East title and a trip to the NCAAs. Outside Hitters/Right-Side Hitters: Junior Lauren Laquerre (Concord, N.H.) will be called upon to lead an emerging crop of young pin hitters. Laquerre was fourth on the team in kills a year ago and was one of New Hampshire’s most reliable attackers. Joining Laquerre are classmates Taylor Dressing (Gillette, N.J.) and Amy Keding (Northbrook, Ill.). Dressing was evolving into one of UNH’s top outside hitters in 2009 until she was sidelined with a knee injury. The Wildcats are optimistic that she can pick up right where she left off. Filling in for Dressing was Keding; the junior outside hitter was a mainstay in the Wildcat lineup down the stretch when the team caught fire. The team won five of the final six matches of the regular season with Keding playing in all six matches. The ‘Cats balance experience with youth by adding three freshmen pin hitters: righty Leah Thomas (Rochester, N.H.), lefties Destiny Tolliver (Rochester, Mich.) and Morgan Thatcher (Brockton, Mass.). Middle Blockers: Senior tri-captain Justine Elliott (Mitchellville, Md.) anchors a crop of young middle blockers for New Hampshire. Elliott, who was the 2009 Ed Jentes Coaches’ Award recipient, started a team-high 99 sets and tallied a team-best 73 blocks. Elliott is on pace to move into the top ten all-time in blocks at UNH and could make a run at cracking the top five in program history. Elliott’s experience is complemented by redshirt sophomore Jessy Dick (Lethbridge, Alberta) and incoming freshman Kaja Schirmer (Pittsford, N.Y.). Dick saw increased role last season playing in 17 sets and tallying 13 kills, while Schirmer should add depth in the middle for the ‘Cats. Setters: New Hampshire is “set” in the middle despite losing just Junior Outside Hitter its second 3,000-assist performer in Kate Uitti. Senior tri-captain Taylor Dressing Sara Heldman (Greenwood, Ind.) will return to her native position for her final season. Heldman is no stranger to setting for the Wildcats. She has 520 assists of her own despite playing all of 2009 at the libero position. Heldman dished out 342 assists in 20 matches as a sophomore. Waiting in the wings is sophomore setter Jansan Falcusan (Plymouth, Mich.). Falcusan, who served as Uitti’s backup in 2009, saw action in 10 matches and 13 sets as a freshman. She finished her first season in Durham with 76 assists including three double-digit performances. Defensive Specialists: The Wildcat defensive efforts will be led by senior tri-captain Jayde Huxtable (St. Charles, Ill.). Huxtable will likely take over the libero duties with Heldman heading back to the setter spot. Joining Huxtable on defense will be sophomore, Jessie Schnepp (East Longmeadow, Mass.). Schnepp saw tremendous growth during the 2009 season as well as in the spring season and will she her time dramatically increase this season.

Junior Outside Hitter Amy Keding

Schedule: The Wildcats open their 2010 campaign on Friday, Aug. 27 at the Army Tournament. UNH will play St. John’s as well as the host Black Knights and Fairleigh Dickinson University during the opening weekend of competition in West Point, N.Y. Next, the ‘Cats will play at the Harvard Tournament on Sept. 3-4 against Boston College, Eastern Illinois and Bryant.

The Wildcats welcome in in-state foe Dartmouth College as well as Sacred Heart and Rutgers. UNH concludes the non-conference play with a single match at UConn on Sept. 24. UNH will open America East conference play on Friday, Oct. 1 as it plays host to Hartford (7 p.m.) and continues at home with Stony Brook on Sunday, Oct. 3 (1 p.m.). . The Wildcats hope to earn a spot in the four-team America East tournament slated for Nov. 19-20 at the site of the highest seed. This off-season, Providence College became an associate member of the America East conference in volleyball. The Wildcats have won three America East tournament titles (1998, 2002, 2003) and three NCAA appearances in school history, all which have come under Coach Hirschinger. UNH has won 20+ matches in six of the last 13 seasons, including a school record 24 wins in 1998 and 1999.

He received his Bachelorate degree in Psychology from Long Beach State and worked on his Master’s Degree in Exercise Science at the University of North Dakota. Ciani, a native of the San Diego, Calif. area, came to UNH after a stint as Assistant Strength Coach at the University of North Dakota. During his tenure at UND, Coach Ciani worked primarily with the 2001 Division II national championship football team, women’s volleyball and men’s basketball teams. In 2000, Ciani began his career in Strength and Conditioning at Long Beach State as a graduate assistant working with the perennial national power women’s volleyball team, where he trained many All-American and national team-level volleyball players, including Misty May.

Lindsay Fogarty 10’1.5” (2006 -09) lacrosse, skiing and track and field. 6. Erin Walker 10’0” (2001-05) Coach Ciani is very passionate about his commitment to Volleyball Strength and Conditioning. He has taken his wide range of experiences to come up with very distinct volleyball-specific training philosophies. In conjunction with the coaching staff, Coach Ciani develops individualized training programs depending on the athlete’s initial evaluation, experience level, and current athletic ability. Under Ciani’s program, improvement is not based on how much weight is on the bar or how high an athlete can jump, but rather the health of the player and their performance on the court. The volleyball strength and conditioning program created by Ciani utilizes all facets of training, from basic strength training and Olympic Weightlifting to simple conditioning and volleyball-specific conditioning that enhances the athlete’s abilities during competition. No single training style dominates the program; Ciani uses a combination of all training techniques for the total development of the volleyball player. When asked about UNH volleyball, Ciani said, ”UNH volleyball’s commitment to strength and conditioning is second to none because of their high level of intensity, effort, and innate desire to be better than anyone else.” In addition, Ciani said, “Volleyball athletes have to be able to produce, absorb, and distribute an immense amount of power and to do this they have to physically and mentally be at their best.” In response to Ciani’s training program and coaching style, former volleyball player and member of the 1,000-kill club, Emmy Blouin, comments, “Ciani creates an incredible atmosphere that encourages a strong focus on technique and form, but also brings an intensity and enthusiasm that is unrivaled. The team really looks forward to working with him because of his dedication to personalizing each program to the player and his eagerness for our success.”

THE ADMINISTRATION

2010 Wildcat Volleyball

D r. M a r k W. H u d d l e s t o n - P r e s i d e n t

Dr. Mark W. Huddleston begins his fourth year as the president of the University of New Hampshire. He is the 19th president of the University of New Hampshire. He brings three decades of experience in public and private higher education as a faculty member, dean, and senior administrator, most recently as president of Ohio Wesleyan University. His term at UNH commenced in July 2007. Huddleston began his academic career at the State University of New York-Buffalo in 1977 as an assistant professor of political science. He then joined the faculty of the University of Delaware in 1980, where he remained for the next 24 years. Dr. Huddleston chaired the Department of Political Science and International Relations and served as associate provost for international programs. He was named dean of the College of Arts and Sciences in 2001, where he managed 45 academic departments and centers with nearly 900 fulltime faculty and staff, and served in that capacity until he was named president of Ohio Wesleyan University in 2004. Having received his bachelor’s degree in political science from SUNY-Buffalo, Huddleston went on to receive both a master’s degree and Ph.D. in political science from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. An author of numerous books and articles, he has been active as a consultant for both the U.S. government and international organizations. He also served as an advisor in Bosnia on rebuilding financial and administrative infrastructures after the Dayton accords. Huddleston was raised in Syracuse and spent 24 years at the University of Delaware in various capacities. For UNH he says, the best years are yet to come—and he is happy that he will be a part of that. “I like to think I’m a really accessible guy. I see students on a regular basis when I’m wandering around campus,” Huddleston says, acknowledging that, with 12,000 more students at UNH than at Ohio Wesleyan, it will be a different experience but not one he wants to disappear. “If I had wanted to be a CEO of a large company, tucked away in an office somewhere, I would have done that,” he says. “I think people here really want a president that they see and feel is a part of the fabric of UNH. That’s very appealing to me.” Huddleston and his wife, Emma Bricker, have three children, Andy, Kate, and Giles.

Marty Scarano - Director of Athletics

Marty Scarano is in the midst of his 11th year as Director of Athletics at the University of New Hampshire. During his tenure, Scarano has heightened national exposure for UNH athletics with academics, facility renovations and programmatic advancement being top priorities. According to numbers released in 2010, UNH athletics ranks highest in the America East Conference, the Colonial Athletic Association and second nationally among all public institutions, trailing only the U.S. Naval Academy, for the Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of its student athletes with a mark of 97 percent. Of its 20 current sport teams, 14 of them submitted perfect GSRs of 100 percent. UNH finished second in the America East Academic Cup this past season, achieving a 3.16 cumulative grade-point average, which surpassed the league record for highest GPA. There have been over $8.5 million in capitol improvements since his hiring in the summer of 2000. In the fall of 2008, the Paul Sweet Oval renovation was completed to include new surfaces, lighting, painting, infrastructure upgrades and the replacement of windows that existed in the original architecture. The total cost of the project exceeded $500,000. In the summer of 2007, the Cowell Stadium grass field was replaced with a $1 million Field Turf synthetic surface. Additionally in 2007, a complete renovation of Lundholm Gymnasium was undertaken. The $600,000 renovation included a new state-of-the-art bleacher system, new scoreboards, competition baskets and other aesthetic enhancements. Scarano brought about the completion of the $2.15 million Reggie Atkins Track and Field Facility in the summer of 2000. The addition of a center-ice scoreboard and message board at the Whittemore Center was completed in 2001. In 2002, UNH athletics renovated Memorial Field along with the Bigglestone Plaza and Bremner Field on the former Upper Field. The two fields, which feature state-of-the-art synthetic turf and lighting, were built at a cost of $1.5 million apiece. In addition, construction was completed to enlarge and improve the women’s locker rooms in the UNH Field House. Two other major improvements to benefit UNH’s student-athletes have been the renovation of the Jerry Azumah Performance Center for Strength and Conditioning, which features state-of-the-art strength and conditioning equipment, new offices and design, and a complete overhaul of the Student-Athlete Academic Center. Scarano and the University are also in the midst of the planning and fundraising for a multipurpose outdoor facility. Scarano has focused on moving UNH athletics into the collegiate national arena. To accomplish that goal, UNH has taken on the task of hosting major NCAA championships. The Wildcat athletic department was host of highly-successful NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Northeast Regionals at the Verizon Wireless Arena (Manchester, N.H.) in 2004, 2007, 2009, and Manchester will once again be the site of the Northeast Regionals in 2011. UNH has had the opportunity to host two NCAA Women’s Ice Hockey Frozen Fours in the Whittemore Center in 2002 and 2005. In addition, UNH successfully hosted the 2007 NCAA Skiing Championships in Washington Valley, as well as the 2005 NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Northeast Regional, which took place at the Whittemore Center. This past season, men’s and women’s ice hockey, football, the men’s and women’s ski teams and gymnastics, as well as members of men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, all competed in the NCAA postseason. Because of these initiatives and accomplishments, UNH athletics has consistently been ranked in the top 90 programs among all Division I institutions in the battle for the NACDA Directors Cup, which is well ahead of nearly all of UNH’s conference opponents. This past season, the Wildcats ranked 72nd out of more than 370 Division I schools with 260.50 points, which were the most in program history, the best in America East and placed the ‘Cats in the top five among FCS teams. UNH ranked behind only Villanova, Princeton, Cornell and Harvard in the FCS subdivision. In New England, the Wildcats finished fourth behind Boston College, Connecticut and Harvard. Scarano’s many accomplishments during his tenure have played a key role in UNH being named one of the Top 20 Athletic Departments in the Country in U.S. News and World Report college athletics rankings in March 2002. UNH’s graduation rate for athletes has maintained levels at or exceeding 90 percent, which puts it among the nation’s best in Division I. The men’s ice hockey team won the regular season Hockey East title in 2002, 2003, 2007, 2008 and 2010, and then advanced to the NCAA Frozen Four in 2002 and 2003. The Wildcat women’s hockey team won the Hockey East Tournament Championship four straight seasons from 2006-09, which also included Frozen Four appearances in 2006 and 2008. The women’s gymnastics team won its first-ever EAGL title in 2003, when the event was hosted at the Whitt. The volleyball team won an America East crown in 2002 and 2003 and went on to the NCAA tournament in those same seasons. The field hockey team made the NCAA’s in 2000, while women’s lacrosse made “The Big Dance” in 2004 and again in 2008. UNH football returned to national prominence and was ranked No. 1 in the nation for parts of three seasons from 2005-07, made it to the NCAA FCS playoffs the last six years, including the quarterfinals five times in that span, and also won its fifth consecutive game against an FBS opponent in 2009. Additionally, 21 coaches have won 58 Coach of the Year awards during Scarano’s tenure. In 2007, Scarano was named the All-American Football Foundation Athletic Director of the Year for FCS football in the Northeast region. Scarano was also awarded the National Association of College Directors of Athletics (NACDA) AD of the Year for the FCS. Scarano also been an active member in the leadership of UNH’s three major conferences and was the chair of the executive committees for Atlantic 10 football, Hockey East and America East from 2003 to 2007. He also served as chair of the NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Committee in 2005-06 and 2006-07. Scarano held the position of Athletics Director at Colorado College from July 1996 through June 2000. The college’s athletic program excelled both in and out of the classroom under his supervision and six different athletic facilities received renovations, including the Schlessman Pool, Washburn Field, the Carle Weight Room and a new press box at Stewart Field. During his tenure, Colorado College was ranked among the top 20 Division III programs in the Sears Cup national standings and produced several All-Americans, all-academic award winners and NCAA post-graduate scholarship recipients. During Scarano’s tenure at Colorado College, the men’s ice hockey team became a regular at the NCAA men’s ice hockey championships. Prior to his stay in Colorado Springs, Scarano worked for 13 years at Colgate University, where he served as assistant director of athletics, director of physical education, associate director, and senior associate director. Scarano, a native of Pittsburgh, Pa., is a 1978 graduate of Penn State University, where he started his athletic career as assistant ticket manager and the athletics events manager from 1980-83. Scarano holds a Master’s Degree in Environmental History from Colgate. He and his wife, Cydney, have two daughters, Lynden, a junior at UNH, and Corey, and a son, Kyle.
