Kristin Cole was named University of New Hampshire women’s basketball head coach on June 12, 2007. Cole is the fifth head coach in the 32-year history of the program. Entering her third year at the helm of the women’s basketball program, Kristin Cole tips off the 2009-10 season with one of the deepest and most talented rosters in the America East conference. Even if the 8-23 record doesn’t indicate it, the Wildcats took a positive step in the right direction, with a 6-10 record against America East opponents. Not to mention finishing in fifth place in the conference, after being picked seventh in the preseason polls. Under her tutelage, forward Candace Williams transformed into one of the best players in the conference posting an average of 16.1 points per game and 8.1 rebounds per game, on her way to being named to the All-Conference Second Team. She also helped continue the development of guard Amy Simpson, who currently sits 2nd on UNH’s all-time 3-point field goals lists, with 161 for her career. In addition, Cole has also brought in a plethora of talent to the program as she recruited Richmond transfer Kelley Flynn, Kelsey Hogan and Jilliane Friel, all natives

to the granite state. She has also reached into the depths of the Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and New York pipelines, recruiting Jackie Lyons, Diamon Beckford, Lauren Wells and Cari Reed, all who show great promise down the road. Cole earned her first head coaching victory in the Wildcats season-opener, a 71-59 win over Central Connecticut on Nov. 13, 2007. She is one of just two head coaches to earn a victory in their UNH debut. In her inaugural season, after losing four-of-five starters from the previous season, including the America East Defensive Player of the Year, the Wildcats relied heavily on its youth. The potential was evident in the return of 2007 America East All-Rookie Team member, Amy Simpson, and was carried on through the incoming class as freshman Denise Beliveau became the third Wildcat in UNH history to garner America East Rookie of the Year award. During the 2007-08 campaign the Wildcats faced three Big East powerhouses and Ivy League Championship title sharers Harvard and Dartmouth and still posted a 7-22 record. Not to mention finishing seventh in the conference after being selected ninth in the preseason polls. She comes to UNH from Xavier University, where she served as assistant coach

Cole’s responsibilities at Xavier included recruiting; player identification and evaluation; scouting opponents, film breakdown and team presentation; on-court coaching duties with an emphasis on post players; and liaison with Academic Support

Services, the Sports Information Department and Admissions Office. In addition to her tenure at Xavier, Cole’s collegiate coaching experience includes stints as an assistant coach at Ball State (2001-02), UNLV (1999-2001) and Auburn (1996-99). Cole’s only season at Ball State was an eventful one in which the team finished atop the Mid-American Conference West Division as well as co-champions of the MAC and made the program’s first postseason appearance with a trip to the WNIT. In two years at UNLV, Cole helped lead the Rebels to their first postseason appearance in seven years at the 2001 WNIT. During her three-year stint at Auburn, the Tigers won the 1997 SEC Tournament and won a pair of NCAA tourney games, including a triumph against Texas in 1999. Cole earned a B.A. in History from the University of Notre Dame in 1994. She earned four monograms playing for the women’s basketball team and led the Irish to their first two NCAA tournament appearances (1992, 1994) as well as three conference championships. Cole won a bronze medal as a participant on the 1991 U.S. Olympic Festival Team, under current Assistant Coach Jacquie Hullah. She also played professionally in Sweden after graduating from Notre Dame. Kristin is the proud mother of Kael, who was born October 30, 2006.

America East About America East Now in its third decade of operation, America East has evolved into one of the most comprehensive NCAA Division I conferences with a commitment to broad-based, competitive athletics programs, complementing the academic integrity and missions of the member institutions. Progressive in its approach to its more than 3,200 student-athletes, America East recognizes champions in each of its 20 sports: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, men’s and women’s tennis, and women’s volleyball. America East also conducts the nation’s most comprehensive academic recognition program for student-athletes. With a geographic footprint covering the MidAtlantic to Northeast regions of the United States, America East strives to develop champions in academics, athletics and leadership at its nine member institutions: University at Albany, Binghamton University, Boston University, University of Hartford, University of Maine, UMBC, University of New Hampshire, Stony Brook University and University of Vermont.

Haskell, Jr. Commissioner’s Cup for the fourth straight year and seventh time in the last eight seasons after capturing a conference-best seven championships, four regular-season titles and four runner-up finishes during the 2008-09 season. •Four America East programs won postseason games in 2008-09: Boston University men’s soccer (NCAA), Boston University women’s basketball (WNIT), Vermont men’s basketball (CBI) and Boston University softball (NCAA).

President

Dr. Mark Huddleston President

Dr. Mark W. Huddleston 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.

Athletic Director

Marty Scarano

Athletic Director Marty Scarano is in the midst of his 10th year as Director of Athletics at the University of New Hampshire. During his tenure, Scarano has heightened national exposure for UNH athletics with facility renovations and programmatic advancement being top priorities. 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 multi-purpose 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 cross country and men’s and women’s outdoor track and field teams, all competed in the NCAA postseason. With all 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. 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 and 2008, and then advanced to the NCAA Frozen Four in 2002 and 2003. The Wildcat women’s hockey team won the Hockey East Tournament Championship for the fourth straight season in 2009, 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, and made it to the NCAA FCS playoffs the last five years, including the quarterfinals for three consecutive seasons. Additionally, 17 coaches have won 54 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 2005-2006 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 postgraduate 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 student at UNH, and Corey, and a son, Kyle.

University of New Hampshire Campus In the last few years, several of the athletic facilities have received major upgrades and improvements. In September of 2001, the University completed a new $2.15 million track and field facility. The Jerry Azumah Performance Center, a strength and conditioning facility located in the UNH Field House, was dedicated on July 8, 2003. UNH athletics has also added three outdoor artificial fields, Memorial Field, Bremner Field and Cowell Stadium. Lundholm Gymnasium has received some major overhauls, including a new playing surface, new lights, a new sound system, scoreboard and a brand new bleacher system in the summer of 2007. Most recently, UNH completed a renovation of the Paul Sweet Oval indoor track complete with a new state-of-the-art surface, improved lighting and an overall facelift. In addition to the incredible improvements of its athletic facilities, the University has upgraded and renovated a large part of its academic campus as well. Most recently, Thompson Hall, one of the standing historical landmarks of the University, has been beautifully refurbished and restored. The University also completed a $52 million renovation of Kinsbury Hall, adding 6,000 square feet of student project Holloway Commons space for students in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, as well as a $4.5 revamp of Hewitt Hall to expand the School of Health and Human Services. In addition, the new 120,000 square foot Biological Sciences Building, Rudman Hall and the Spaulding Life Sciences Renovation project now provide state-of-the-art teaching and researching laboratories. The University also spent $15 million to complete Morse Hall, a new science and engineering building as well as $8.2 million to modernize the Memorial Union Building. This revision to the existing student union building consisted of several upgrades including top kitchen and dining facilities, two theaters, student mailboxes, lounges and meeting rooms, as well as additional retail spaces such as the University Bookstore. The University has also completed construction of the new dining facility on Main Street, Holloway Commons, as well as the renovation of the Dimond Library. In November of 1995, construction of the $27 million Recreation and Sport Complex reached completion. The new Whittemore Center includes a state-of-the-art 6,500 to 7,500 seat arena for hockey, concerts and convocations, as well as a new three-level recreational sports facility within the structure which had housed the old Snively Arena.

While the University offers an extremely broad academic base with an inspiring faculty, it also provides students with thousands of opportunities to get involved, either through athletics, campus recreation, Campus student life, or research. The University is a dynamic community that not only challenges its members academically but also expands their understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity and leads to incredLundholm Gymnasium ible growth as students, faculty, staff, and as a community.
