CHARGER SOCCER 2012 COACHES 2012 PLAYERS 2012 OUTLOOK

After being left out of the Northeast-10 Conference Tournament by a single point in the standings last season, the New Haven women’s soccer team takes the pitch this fall eyeing a return to the postseason and to prominence as a regional power. Laura Duncan, the first head coach in program history to post a winning record in each of her first two seasons with the Chargers, has assembled a group of 18 returners and seven newcomers for her third campaign on the sidelines at Kayo Field. Offensively, the Chargers welcome back five of their top six point scorers from last season, including sophomore midfielder Amber Simms, who led the club with six goals and 14 total points in 2011. Simms was recognized regionally as a NEWISA Division II Second Team All-New England honoree in addition to conference laurels as a Third Team All-Northeast-10 and All-Rookie Team pick. NEWISA Division II First Team All-New England selection Lucy Francisco and Second Team choice Monica Yanez, who also earned a Third Team All-Northeast-10 distinction, will return to the front line. Francisco scored four goals with 10 total points last fall and enters her senior campaign ranked 11th all-time in career goals (16) and 13th in career points (41) in program history. Yanez was the team leader with five assists in her sophomore season and also scored the game-winning goal in the Chargers’ 1-0 blanking of Bentley during conference play.

The attack will be supplemented by junior Alyssa Zargos and incoming freshmen Ashley Dawson, Marisa Garcia and Emily Hoffman. The Chargers’ back row boasts three defenders who started all 17 matches last season: seniors Danielle Iacono and Lauren Primovic and junior Heather Timmons. Fellow junior Amanda Hathaway started 16 matches on the New Haven defensive end, and graduate student Ali Español has taken the pitch for 55 career matches in a Charger uniform. Spelling the defensive starters in both the back row and the midfield will be returners Hannah Allen, Shelbi Guimond and Jenn Dobrodziej as well as newcomers Kayla Brewer, Becca Sierejko, Miranda Smith and Taylor Szyarto. The biggest vacancy to be filled will be between the posts, as Duncan looks to replace goalkeeper Kim Taylor ’12. Taylor, who played every minute in net for the Chargers in each of the last two campaigns, graduated ranked second in program history in career goals-against average and goalkeeper minutes played. Natasha Purchla and Moriah Saidel, both sophomores who spent last season behind Taylor, will compete during the preseason for starting goalkeeper duties.

The road through the Northeast-10 Conference contains a sizeable roadblock in Saint Rose, the defending National Champions who return the NSCAA National Player of the Year, Carmelina Puopolo. Additional NE-10 foes MassachuMidfielder Nicole Pacapelli notched three goals and started setts-Lowell and Merrimack both qualified for the NCAA all 17 matches as a freshman, while classmate Courtney Tournament in 2011, while non-conference opponent DowlMarra added two tallies as well as an assist during her ing also advanced to the national postseason. rookie campaign.

She burst onto the scene with 20 goals and 45 points in her first season, en route to one of her two First Team All-NECC awards, and led the program to a No. 6 ranking in the New England region. Huber still holds school records for goals (5) and points (10) in a single game. She later played professionally in the W-League in 2002 and 2003.

Steven H. Kaplan, Ph.D., University President

Dr. Kaplan began his teaching career in 1982 as an Instructor of English at the University of Maryland, European Division. From 1985-1989, he served as Visiting Lecturer in American Studies at Eberhard-Karls Universität, Tübingen, Germany – one of the oldest and most highly regarded universities in Europe. After completing his doctoral studies at Eberhard-Karls Universität, he returned to the U.S. to teach English at the University of Southern Colorado. Within three years, he was made department chair, serving in that capacity for two years before becoming Director of the Center for International Studies. Dr. Kaplan also served as dean of Arts and Humanities at SUNY College at Buffalo and as Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Butler University. In addition to earning his Ph.D. in Comparative Literature at Eberhard-Karls Universität, Dr. Kaplan holds a Master of Arts degree (with a concentration in philosophy, German and English) from Eberhard-Karls Universität and a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California at Los Angeles.

Dr. Kaplan and his wife, Anemone Schweizer-Kaplan, are both ardent opera buffs and love to ballroom dance, hike and downhill ski. They share a great love for the visual and performing arts and have traveled to more than 30 countries during their 35 years together, including Tanzania, where they hiked up Mt. Kilimanjaro. They have a son and three daughters. Dr. Kaplan grew up in Chicago, the son of a shoe store owner and an actress-comedienne. He said his stepfather, Irving Glovin, taught him to love ideas and appreciate the contributions we all need to make to good causes. Irv Glovin was a good friend of Oskar Schindler, was instrumental in getting the story out in book and film form (he was associate producer of the film), and is President of the Oskar Schindler Humanitarian Foundation. Dr. Kaplan also serves on the board of the Foundation. Anemone Schweizer-Kaplan grew up in Southwest Germany. She holds the equivalent of an American M.A. in Secondary Education and taught at a German high school. She is a ceramics artist and taught German and pottery as an adjunct faculty member in Colorado and Virginia.

2012 OUTLOOK

HISTORY & RECORDS

UNH Athletics has enjoyed a high level of success across the board during Chin’s tenure as Director of Athletics, advancing to NCAA tournament over 50 times in 17-plus years. UNH has recently made a number of capital improvements to athletic and recreational facilities, including the construction of the multi-million dollar David A. Beckerman Student Recreation Center, a $1.3 million synthetic turf renovation of Kayo Field (soccer and lacrosse), as well as installation of stateof-the-art blue and gold synthetic turf at the new Ralph F. DellaCamera Stadium. In 2007, Chin spearheaded efforts to re-instate football as a varsity program and find UNH a new athletics conference that best fits the institution’s long-term academic and athletic aspirations. Both goals were accomplished when UNH announced on November 13, 2007 that it had been accepted as a full member of the prestigious Northeast-10 Conference, effective the 2008-09 academic year. After a five-year hiatus, the Charger football team returned to the gridiron in 2009, and have since won back-to-back conference championships and advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals.

A member of the University of New Haven staff since 1975, Chin began her UNH career as Coordinator of Women’s Athletics. She was responsible for starting the women’s intercollegiate athletic program at UNH, coaching volleyball, tennis, basketball and softball in the early years. Chin eventually surrendered all head coaching responsibilities, except volleyball, when she was promoted to Associate Director of Athletics in 1979.

DEPARTMENT OF ATHLETICS PHILOSOPHY Higher education has lasting importance on an individual’s future success. For this reason, the emphasis for the student-athlete experience at the University of New Haven is a comprehensive program of learning and development in a personal setting. As an NCAA Division II program, our approach provides growth opportunities through academic achievement, learning in high-level athletic competition and development of positive societal attitudes in service to community. The balance and integration of these different areas of learning opportunity provide our student-athletes a path to graduation while cultivating a variety of skills and knowledge for life ahead. The University of New Haven seeks to provide the world with leaders who can make a positive difference in a global society. Studentathletes are afforded unique opportunities for leadership because of the visibility provided through athletics competition. UNH’s intercollegiate program provides opportunities for its student-athletes to develop moral virtues, such as courage, self-confidence, and integrity and to learn communication and teamwork skills associated with outstanding leadership. Thus the Department of Athletics helps the University satisfy its primary aspiration, which is to prepare students to lead purposeful and fulfilling lives in a global society through experiential, collaborative, and discovery-based learning. The Department of Athletics is committed to delivering intercollegiate athletics programs that are consistent with the University’s mission and generates the trust and support of its various constituencies. The goal of the department is to field sports teams that compete successfully against other NCAA Division II teams while upholding the academic standards of the University of New Haven. The department is also committed to conducting its programs in strict adherence to the policies, rules and regulations set by the University’s administration, Board of Governors, the NCAA and the Northeast-10 Conference. Through its programs, the department gives its student-athletes of different genders, races, religions, national origins and sexual orientation opportunities to participate in intercollegiate competition. The intercollegiate program will function free of discrimination with a University commitment to the adherence to Title IX and the Office of Civil Rights guidelines. A major goal of the Department of Athletics is to help student-athletes realize the full potential of their athletic abilities while also increasing their intellectual capabilities and providing them a meaningful opportunity to earn a baccalaureate degree. The department will not compromise its commitment to educate and graduate its student-athletes. Department of Athletics personnel are expected to represent the University in a manner consistent with UNH’s principles and values. All personnel are expected to perform their responsibilities with the highest standards of integrity, ethical behavior and sportsmanship at all times. Coaches and staff are expected to treat student-athletes fairly and with respect and to facilitate leadership that helps them mature physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. DEPARTMENT OF ATHLETICS HIGHLIGHTS • The UNH women’s volleyball team has reached the NCAA Sweet 16 eighteen times since 1983, and advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight 11 times, including an Elite Eight appearance in 2008. • Baseball has consistently been ranked as one of the winningest Division II programs in NCAA history. Baseball Coach Emeritus Frank “Porky” Vieira retired after the 2006 season as Division II’s all-time winningest coach by percentage, and logged 1,127 career victories. The team has appeared in 17 College World Series and made 32 Regional appearances. Baseball has also produced nine major league players, including former Cy Young winner Steve Bedrosian of the Philadelphia Phillies. • Women’s Basketball won the NCAA Division II National Championship in 1987. • The football program has appeared in five NCAA playoffs, earning runner-up status in 1997. That title-game appearance made UNH the only football team in the State of Connecticut to ever compete for a national title and the smallest school (in terms of enrollment) to compete for an NCAA Championship. • Women’s track and field has produced arguably the most successful individual student-athlete in Charger history. Shannon Gagne won five national championships during the 2010-11 academic year and helped bring the program a fourth place finish at the 2011 National Championship meet. • Tailback Roger Graham won the 1993 Harlon Hill Trophy as the top Division II Football Player in the nation.
