      Delaware Uses Big Second-Half Run To Defeat Northeastern 87-74 In CAA Semifinals

      Box Score attached

      BALTIMORE, Md. (March 9, 2014) – Delaware erupted in the second half and ran away from fifth-seeded Northeastern, 87-74 in the first semifinal contest of the 2014 CAA men's basketball championship on Sunday at Baltimore Arena.

      The top-seeded Blue Hens (24-9) advanced to the CAA title game for the first time and will face either second-seeded Towson or third-seeded William & Mary at 7 p.m. on Monday night with a chance to hoist the league’s trophy.

      Jarvis Threatt scored 19 points and grabbed a team-high 11 boards for a double-double and Davon Usher tallied 21 points in the victory. All five UD starters registered double-figures, including Devon Saddler, who had 19 points and nine assists, Kyle Anderson, who scored 10 points and Carl Baptiste, who supplied 14 in only 16 minutes of action.

      Northeastern’s Scott Eatherton netted 20 points and grabbed eight boards and Reggie Spencer had 18 points and eight rebounds in defeat. The Huskies (11-21) beat fourth-seeded Drexel, 90-81, on Saturday, and made their fourth semifinal appearance and third in the last five years.

      The Blue Hens, who captured their first regular-season title with a 14-2 conference mark, were ferocious in the second half, shooting 76 percent (19-of-25) from the floor, including 5-of-7 from behind the arc.

      In the first half, Threatt and Usher combined for 23 points, scoring 11 and 12 apiece, respectively, to help UD stake a 39-37 advantage at the break. NU stayed within striking distance thanks to out-rebounding the Blue Hens 23-14, while Spencer and Eatherton combined for 16 points and 13 boards alone for the Huskies over the first 20 minutes.

      The early potion of the final 20 minutes proved to be NU’s demise, as the Blue Hens rarely missed an opportunity or shot, for that matter. Anderson’s 3-pointer from the right wing with 11:19 remaining capped an impressive, 27-11 run which saw UD extend its edge to 18 (66-48).

      From there, the hot-shooting Hens’ offense was able to outlast the Huskies, even stretching the lead as high as 22, before holding on down the line for the key win.

      After a slow start hobbled the Hens in Saturday’s quarterfinals versus Hofstra, UD wasted little time on Sunday, racing out to a quick 19-5 lead seven-plus minutes into the action. Northeastern impressively responded, however, with its own 19-5 run to tie the game at 24-all following an old fashioned three-point play by Eatherton.

      The rest of the first half was a back-and-forth affair, with neither team obtaining a lead greater than five points.

      Northeastern now owns an 8-9 all-time record in CAA tournament play, while Eatherton ends his historic junior campaign with 19 double-doubles, two behind Towson’s Jerrelle Benimon for the NCAA Division I lead.

      SUBJECT:  University of Delaware Rowers Cirelli, Noce, Quinn Selected as CRCA National Scholar-Athletes
       
      DATE:  June 6 , 2014
      sws:
       
      NEWARK, Del.  --  University of Delaware rowing standouts Denise Cirelli, Jamie Noce, and Angela Quinn have been honored by the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) as National Scholar-Athletes. 
       
      The Blue Hen trio was among over 400 student-athletes honored nationally as NCAA Division I CRCA National Scholar-Athletes. To be eligible, student-athletes must have at least sophomore eligibility, rowed in at least 75 percent of their team’s spring races, and hold a minimum 3.5 or higher grade point average. 
       
      “We are proud of Denise, Jamie, and Angela for their outstanding efforts in the classroom, not just this year, but throughout their UD careers,” said Delaware head coach Kevin Gruber. “The CRCA Scholar-Athlete criteria is tough, so Denise, Jamie, and Angela are part of a pretty select group of collegiate rowers.     They are great representatives of the UD Rowing program.”
       
      Cirelli, a junior from Wayne, Pa. (Baldwin School), was a member of the Blue Hen Varsity Eights crew all season and led the team to a fourth place finish at the Colonial Athletic Association Championships and a berth in the semifinals at the Dad Vail Regatta. A member of the National College Athlete Honor Society, she was the team’s representative on the CAA All-Academic Team announced as part of the CAA Championships. She carries a 3.57 grade point average as an exercise science major. 
       
      Noce, a junior from Baldwinsville, N.Y. (Baker HS),  was also a member of the Blue Hen Varsity Eights crew all season, helping the team to a fourth place finish at the CAA Championships. Also a member of the National College Athlete Honor Society, she carries a 3.60 grade point average as a fine arts major. 
       
      Quinn, a senior from Aldan, Pa. (Archbishop Prendergast HS), was also a member of the Blue Hen Varsity Eights crew all season, helping the team to a fourth place finish at the CAA Championships. She also led the Second Varsity Eights crew to a fifth place finish in the third final at the Knecht Cup. 
       
      Also a member of the National College Athlete Honor Society, Quinn was honored earlier this month with the UD Sport Management Myles Brand Award. The award is presented to an outstanding sport management student who in and out of the classroom, potentially on the playing field, in the community and in their professional activities, displays the ideals championed by the NCAA in its core purpose - to govern competition in a fair, safe, equitable, and sportsmanlike manner, and to integrate intercollegiate athletics into higher education so that the educational experience of the student is paramount. She carries a 3.52 grade point average as a sport management major.

      DATE:  June 12, 2014
      sws:
       
      RICHMOND, Va. -- Two University of Delaware female student-athletes earned prestigious honors from the Colonial Athletic Association on Thursday as track & field standout Lindsay Prettyman and golfer Baralee Theinthong were selected as the CAA Scholar-Athlete of the Year for their respective sports. 
       
      A total of 11 student-athletes from seven different schools who excelled both athletically and academically were honored by the CAA as recipients of the Scholar-Athlete Award for the spring sports season.
       
      The conference honors one Scholar-Athlete in each of its 21 championship sports. Nominees for the award must be a starter or important reserve on their team and must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.25. The winners were selected by a vote of the media relations directors at each CAA institution.
       
      Prettyman and Theinthong were the second and third UD student-athletes honored by the CAA this season Allegra Gray earned the CAA Scholar-Athlete of the Award honor in women’s soccer back in the fall. 
       
      Prettyman (Newark, Del./St. Mark’s High School) continued her run of post-season accolades with the CAA award. A May graduate with a degree in exercise science and a 3.88 grade point average, Prettyman earned a spot on the CoSIDA Academic All-District 2 team for the second year in a row last Month and is now in the running for Academic All-American honors. 
       
      She received UD’s Mary Ann Hitchens Award, which is given to a senior female letterwinner for outstanding leadership, integrity and community service, and was Delaware’s nominee for the NCAA Woman of the Year award. Prettyman was named the Most Outstanding Track Performer at the CAA Track & Field Championship after leading the Blue Hens to their first conference title. She set a meet record in winning the 1,500 meters and also took first in the 800 meters. Prettyman was selected as Delaware’s Outstanding Female Athlete of the Year for 2013-14.
       
      “This is another great honor for Lindsay to be selected among the CAA Scholar-Athlete award winners,” said Delaware women’s cross country and track & field head coach Wendy McFarlane. “Once again, she has outnumbered her peers with excellence as both a student and as an athlete. She has made not only her parents, our staff, and her friends proud, she has become an ambassador for the Delaware cross country and track and field programs.”
       
      A junior majoring in finance with a grade point average of 3.91, Theinthong (Bangkok, Thailand/Niva International School) was a member of the CAA All-Academic team in women’s golf and is a three-time CAA Commissioner’s Academic Award recipient. She was a National Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar in 2012 and has twice earned the UD Team Sportsmanship Award. On the course, Theinthong is a three-year letterwinner for the Blue Hens who compiled a 79.6 stroke average in five tournaments this season. She had a pair of Top 10 individual finishes this season at the Towson Invitational and in a dual match with Brown. 
       
      “I am very happy for Baralee,” said Delaware women’s golf head coach Patty Post. “I am extremely proud of the hard work and effort she has put in both on the golf course and in the classroom. She is a solid role model for our team and I know she will continue to excel at the University of Delaware.”
       
      In addition to Prettyman and Theinthong, also earning Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors were William & Mary senior Kevin Nutter in baseball, Towson senior Joe Gunerman in men’s golf, Towson senior Thomas DeNapoli in men’s lacrosse, James Madison junior Alison Curwin in women’s lacrosse, Drexel junior Victoria King in rowing, College of Charleston senior Lizzy Vaughn in softball, UNCW senior Rafael Aita in men’s tennis, College of Charleston senior Kelly Kambourelis in women’s tennis, and UNCW senior Dylan Skinner in men’s track and field.

      NEW HAVEN, Conn. - - For the fifth consecutive year, the Wilmington University men’s athletic programs claimed the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference Alfred R. Restaino, Sr. Cup, while the women’s programs placed sixth overall among the conference’s 14 schools, as announced by CACC commissioner Dan Mara.
      The cups are awarded annually to the institutions that perform at the highest level in all CACC-sponsored sports.  The point system used for the award takes into account each athletic program’s finish in both the CACC 2013-2014 regular season and conference tournaments.  Each institution receives a combined point total and the sum is then divided by the number of sports the institution sponsors.
      Wilmington (11.85 total point average) claimed the men’s Restaino Cup for the fifth-straight year on the strength of conference championships in cross-country, golf and the regular season title in baseball.  The Wildcats amassed 59.25 points in the five sports the program sponsors.  Wilmington claimed three of the eight possible men’s championships that the conference offers.
      The Wildcats also received a CACC Tournament semifinal appearance by the men’s soccer team and a CACC Tournament runner-up award by the baseball team to boost their postseason numbers.

      The women’s programs used the strength of the CACC Tournament Championship by the softball team to earn a sixth place position with 9.75 points on average among six sports. The CACC South division regular season title and an appearance in the CACC Tournament Semifinal round by the volleyball team also helped earn valuable points.
      Philadelphia won the women’s Restaino Cup with an average of 11.91 points, powered by the South Division regular season and tournament championship in lacrosse, the South Division regular season title in basketball and tied for the South Division regular season crown in volleyball.  In addition, PhillyU finished second in the cross-country championship and third in the inaugural track and field championship.  The program advanced to at least the semifinals in five of the six women’s CACC tournaments.

      SUBJECT: University of Delaware Volleyball Program Adds Maryland Transfer Julia Anderson
       
      DATE: June 11, 2014
      kmt:
       
      NEWARK, Del. -- The University of Delaware volleyball program has added University of Maryland transfer Julia Anderson who will begin playing for the Blue Hens in the fall, UD head coach Bonnie Kenny announced Wednesday.
       
      Anderson, a 5-8 setter, will have three years of eligibility remaining for Delaware after playing her freshman season with the Terrapins in 2013.
       
      Anderson appeared in 92 sets for Maryland a year ago, contributing 487 assists for a team-best average of 5.29 assists per set. She also added 122 digs, sixth most on the squad, and posted nine service aces.
       
      Anderson recorded 22 assists during her collegiate debut against George Washington, and a week later contributed a career-high 29 helpers vs. UMKC. Later in the season she had 27 assists in consecutive matches against Marshall and Georgia Tech, while she posted at least 20 assists in each of the final three contests of the campaign.
       
      Anderson notched a career-high 13 digs vs. Clemson, and added nine against New Hampshire.
       
      Anderson, a native of Mountainville, N.Y., led Cornwall Central High School to the state championship during all four years. A two-time OCIAA first team selection and team captain, she was named second team All-State in 2011 and earned a spot on the state All-Tournament Team. Anderson also played club volleyball for USANY in 2013, helping lead the squad to a 15th place finish at AAU Nationals.
       
      “I am really excited about adding Julia to our roster,” Kenny said. “She had a very good freshman year at Maryland, and will bring some maturity and stability to our setting position.

      RICHMOND, Va. – University of Delaware women’s basketball standout Kelsey Buchanan (South Riding, Va./Freedom HS) was selected Friday as one of two student-athletes from the Colonial Athletic Association to be nominated for the 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year award.

      The NCAA Woman of the Year award honors senior student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in the areas of academic achievement, athletics excellence, service and leadership.  In order to qualify for the award, nominees must have completed intercollegiate eligibility in their primary sport, graduated no later than the end of the 2014 summer term and achieved a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 2.5.

       

      Buchanan earned All-CAA First Team honors this season after ranking third in the conference in scoring (17.1 ppg) and fourth in rebounding (8.5 rpg). She was also named to the CAA All-Tournament team after leading the Blue Hens to the conference title game for the fourth year in a row. The forward was honored as UD’s Most Valuable Player as the Blue Hens advanced to post-season play for the fifth consecutive season by competing in the WNIT.  In addition to her scoring and rebounding numbers, Buchanan ranked among the CAA’s top 10 in field goal percentage (.465/sixth), free throw percentage (.801/sixth) and blocked shots (1.0 bpg/sixth).

       

      Off of the court, Buchanan was a four-time CAA Commissioner’s Academic Award recipient and she was selected to the CAA All-Academic team in women’s basketball in 2013-14. She graduated from Delaware with a degree in administration and family policy and plans to attend graduate school at George Washington University this fall to pursue a career in counseling.

       

      A community leader, Buchanan has been involved with Special Olympics, assisted with the CAA Food Drive, served as an intern and mentor at Gilpin Manor Elementary School, worked as a student admissions officer and participated in a mission trip to South Africa as a member of the Delaware Christian Athletes. In recognition of those activities, she was a nominee for the WBCA Allstate Good Works Award.

       

      Two-time CAA Women’s Swimmer of the Year Kaitlin Burke of Towson University was the league’s other nominee.

       

      The top 10 honorees in NCAA Division I, II and III will be announced in early September, followed by the top three honorees per division. The NCAA Woman of the Year winner will be announced at a dinner in Indianapolis on October 19.

      SUBJECT:  University of Delaware Track & Field Standout Lindsay Prettyman Earns CoSIDA Academic All-American Honors
       
      DATE:  June 26, 2014
      sws:
       
      AUSTIN, Tex. -- A month after earning her degree from the University of Delaware, former Blue Hen track & field and cross country standout Lindsay Prettyman continues to earn prestigious awards from her collegiate career. 
       
      Prettyman, who capped her senior year by leading the Blue Hens to the Colonial Athletic Association outdoor track & field team title in early May, was honored for her outstanding academic efforts Thursday as she earned Capital One Third Team Academic All-America® Division I Women’s Track and Field/Cross Country honors presented by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). 
       
      A total of 45 student-athletes were honored on the first, second, and third teams, which were selected from a vote of a national panel of collegiate sports information directors. Prettyman was the only CAA student-athlete honored on the three teams. 
       
      A native of nearby Newark, Del. (St. Mark’s High School), Prettyman becomes just the third Blue Hen women’s track & field performer to earn Academic All-American honors, joining two-time first team selection Alison Farrance (1985-86) and 1983 second team selection Pam Hohler. Prettyman is the first UD student-athlete to earn CoSIDA Academic All-American honors in any sport since Elena Delle Donne was named the Academic All-American of the Year for Women’s Basketball in 2013. 
       
      “I am honored to receive such a prestigious award,” said Prettyman, who earned a spot on the national All-American ballot after being named to the District 2 first team for the second straight year earlier this month. “It's so rewarding to see all of my hard work paying off. Words can't describe how much I am going to miss representing the Blue Hens on the track and out on the course.”
       
      Prettyman, who capped an outstanding career by competing at the NCAA East Regional Track & Field Championships last month, earned her degree in exercise science with honors and concluded her career with a 3.88 grade point average. She will attend graduate school in physical therapy at the University of Delaware this fall. 
       
      “I am so proud to see the many honors that Lindsay has received this year,” said Delaware head coach Wendy McFarlane. “To earn Academic All-American honors and to excel in so many other areas during her four years at the University of Delaware just goes to show that anything is attainable with hard work and dedication. I wish her continued success in her future endeavors.”
       
      Prettyman excelled in cross country, indoor track & field, and outdoor track & field during an outstanding career. She was named the team Most Valuable Player in all three sports this past season, was selected as the UD Alumni Association Outstanding Female Athlete of the Year, and earned the most prestigious award bestowed on a UD female student-athlete - the Mary Ann Hitchens Award - which recognizes a senior letterwinner who has exhibited outstanding qualities of hard work, dedication, leadership, fairness, and striving for excellence.
       
      Whether she was racing through the woods on the cross country course, running past the competition on the indoor and outdoor track oval, or putting in long hours towards her academic endeavors, Prettyman excelled in all her pursuits at the University of Delaware. As a three-sport standout in cross country and indoor and outdoor track and field, she earned 12 letters, served as a team captain, set 10 school records, and won 29 meet titles during her remarkable tenure at UD.
       
      As a four-year standout in cross country, she was named team Most Valuable Player three times and led the squad in 21 races, capturing three individual titles along the way. She culminated her career this past fall by becoming just the third woman in UD history and first since 1984 to compete at the NCAA Championships.   
       
      During the indoor season, Prettyman won five meet titles this past winter and earned All-East honors for the second time in her career when she finished second in the mile run at the ECAC championships in Boston. For her career, she set school records in the 800 meters, 1,000 meters, 3,000 meters, and 4 x 800 meter relay.
       
      Prettyman was even more impressive on the outdoor track where she established school standards in the 800 meters, 1,500 meters, 5,000 meters, 4 x 800 meter relay, and the distance medley relay. In May she led the Blue Hens to their first-ever CAA team title when she was named the meet’s Outstanding Track Performer after winning both the 800 meter and 1,500 meter competitions. Her time in the 1,500 meters set a CAA meet record. She followed that up with a ninth place finish in the 800 meters at the ECAC Eastern championships and a 38th place showing in the 1,500 meters at the NCAA East Regionals.
       
      In the classroom, Prettyman carried a near perfect 3.88 grade point average, was named to the CAA Academic Honor Roll numerous times, and is a two-year member of the National College Athlete Honor Society.  
       
      She has also played a key role in several community services initiatives, taking part in the Pigskin Pass for Special Olympics Delaware, serving at numerous youth track & field clinics, and taking a lead role in a shoe drive that collected over 600 pairs of shoes for the More Foundation Group that provides services for Africa and other underprivileged communities around the world.

      NEWARK, Del. -- University of Delaware volleyball head coach Bonnie Kenny has announced the addition of Ryan Newell to the Blue Hen staff as an assistant coach.

Ryan has the ability to take the area of technology to the next level in our program. He is a great player that will be an asset in the gym. His attention to detail when training players will be embraced by our student athletes. We are fortunate to have him on our staff.”

       

      Prior to his year at Pitt, Newell served as an assistant coach at Seattle University. A 2008 graduate of Chico State University, Newell also spent three seasons at the University of California, San Diego in 2010-12.

       

      Additionally Newell was a volunteer assistant coach for the University of California in 2009-10, helping lead the Golden Bears to a 21-11 record and a berth in the NCAA Tournament.

       

      Newell played club volleyball at Chico State from 2003-08, and was club president and team captain during his final three years. He also served as an assistant coach with the Chico State women’s volleyball team  from 2005-08, helping the Wildcats to a 71-43 record during that time.

      NEWARK, Del. - - Former Wilmington University middle hitter Brittany Biddle has been awarded a NCAA Division II Degree Completion Award, providing the former volleyball standout financial assistance to complete her first baccalaureate degree.

The applicant must be within 32 semester hours of completion of his or her first undergraduate degree at the completion of the spring term, and carry greater than a 2.50 cumulative grade-point average.
      “I am grateful to the NCAA for this scholarship because it will allow me to ease the financial burden on my family and enable me to focus on completing my degree and fulfilling my dream of becoming a teacher,” Biddle said.
      Biddle, who completed her fourth year of competition this past fall for the Wildcats, will be student teaching at an elementary school in the Claymont School District this fall to complete her Elementary Education: K-6 degree from Wilmington University.
      This pas year, Biddle led the Wildcats to a 23-10 overall record and a second straight Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference South Division Regular Season title.

      “I enjoyed my time as a student-athlete at Wilmington and appreciate all the opportunities afforded to me by the University, athletics department, and volleyball program,” Biddle continued. “It’s a great honor to be nominated among so many worthy and outstanding candidates. It is a wonderful program offered by the NCAA, showing they truly do value the effort student-athletes put in during their time on the court and in the classroom.”
      Biddle carries a perfect 4.0 grade point average into this coming academic year.
      The CACC had four members that were awarded a Division II Degree Completion scholarship, joining a pair from Holy Family University and one from Felician College. In all, NCAA Division II awarded 81 former student-athletes with a Degree Completion Scholarship.
      To date, nearly $4 million has been given to approximately 1,000 deserving student-athletics since the program started in 2001. Of those student-athletes who have received the award since its inception, 94 percent have earned their undergraduate degree using this program.

      Duo represents ACC for top female student-athlete distinction

       

      GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – The Atlantic Coast Conference has selected Virginia Tech’s Jazmine Reeves (women’s soccer) and Notre Dame’s Elizabeth Tucker (women’s soccer) as its two nominees for the 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year Award.

      Reeves was named a Hermann Trophy semifinalist, First Team NSCAA All-American and First Team All-ACC selection in 2013, while leading the Hokies to their first College Cup. The forward from Dover, Delaware appeared in the most matches in Virginia Tech’s history and finished her career second in points, tied for third in assists and fourth in goals. Reeves was a two-time All-ACC Academic Team honoree, and was selected to the All-ACC Second Team in 2011 and All-Freshman Team in 2010.

      Off the field, Reeves was active in the community and volunteered at Warm Hearth Assisted Living, Margaret Beeks Lunch Buddies and Special Olympics bowling. She also participated in numerous community service projects including: Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics, Jump Rope for Heart and National Girls and Women in Sports Day.

      Tucker helped lead Notre Dame to four consecutive NCAA Championship berths, highlighted by a national championship in 2010. The midfielder from Jacksonville, Florida was a two-time team captain and appeared in all 92 career games for the Irish. An ACC and NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship recipient, Tucker was a two-time Capital One First Team Academic All-American, a Rhodes Scholar nominee and graduated with a 4.0 grade point average.

      Tucker has also been involved in various service and leadership initiatives both on and off campus, as she was a Student-Athlete Advisory Council Executive Board Member, and participated in the Rosenthal Leadership Academy, Fighting Irish Fight for Life and ND Vivian Harrington Gray Tax Assistance Program. She also served as a teaching assistant in the Mendoza College of Business and as a volunteer at Perley Elementary School. Other projects Tucker has been a part of include: Notre Dame Peer Advising Program, Monroe Park Grocery Cooperative, South Bend Soccer Shots, Dram Team Program and Little Flower Catholic Church.

      The NCAA Women of the Year honors graduating female student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout the collegiate careers in the areas of academic achievement, athletics excellence, service and leadership.  From the group of nominees, the top 10 will be chosen for each division in early September 2014.  The selection committee will then determine the top three from each division to make up the final nine finalists in late September 2014.  The national winner will be announced during the 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year awards event on October 19, 2014 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

      The NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics manages the nomination process and selections. In the past five years, 676 student-athletes were nominated by their conference or independent institutions, representing multiple ethnicities and all NCAA-sponsored sports within Divisions I, II and III. In 2013 alone, 455 student-athletes were nominated by their institutions. From 1998 through 2005, an average of 410 female student-athletes per year were nominated for the award; and since the program’s inception in 1991, 2629 women have been recognized as state or conference honorees.

      Terrapins Name 2014 Tri-Captains

      Fluharty, Gerzabek and Sprink to serve as captains for the 2014 season

       

      COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Seniors Maxine Fluharty, Katie Gerzabek and junior Sarah Sprink will serve as captains of the Maryland field hockey team for the 2014 season.

      "Maxine, Katie and Sarah are a talented dynamic, hardworking leadership trio,” head coach Missy Meharg said. “The front field, the midfield, the backfield are represented by these NCAA/FIH experienced players. All have been honored by their leagues and all three represented their countries in the Junior World Cup. They understand that the way we train and prepare puts us in position to win championships in November."

      These three will have a more important leadership role as they help lead the Terrapins into a new and exciting league in the Big Ten.

      “I cannot wait for us to take the field and push each other so we get the best out of everyone each and every practice and game,” Gerzabek said. “In our spring season we took a lot of steps both individually and as a team. I think everyone really worked hard and improved their individual game. I'm so excited to take all of these improvements and compete for championships this upcoming season.”

      “The playing style is a little different in the Big Ten so I am excited to take what we already have and keep improving and building on the Maryland brand of field hockey.”

      When asked what leadership means, Sprink said, “Inclusion means everyone knows what unique and important part they play on the team, and in what ways they help the team be great.”

      “I am very excited to join the Big Ten. The way we will play is exciting. We will use the entire team to attack and defend together. Even though we think we know what is coming, we actually are clueless as to how this new journey will turn out. We have complete faith in each other and in our style of hockey.”

      “We have an immense amount of natural talent within each of the girls along with passion and energy,” Fluharty said. “I am excited to be joining the Big Ten. I think it will have a different atmosphere but there is nothing more thrilling than being challenged in new ways.”

      “We’re thrilled to add David to our team,” said UD Director of Athletics and Recreation Services Eric Ziady. “He’s done a great job at the Delaware Sports Commission (DSC) recruiting and attracting a wide variety of events to the state and we look forward to utilizing his experience and networking skills to grow the business model we’ve established for our athletics facilities at UD. He will play an integral role as we strengthen our focus on group sales to our athletic events as well as with our continued outreach to the Delaware community.”
       
      “On behalf of all the members of the Delaware Sport Commission Board of Directors, I want to wish David all the best in his new position and thank him for his contributions to growth and the success of the DSC over the past two and half years,” said Dr. Matt Robinson, director of the undergraduate and graduate sport management programs at UD and chairman of the DSC. “Dave was instrumental in recruiting events that have had a significant impact on the state’s economy. David is a talented, passionate, and committed professional with a bright future ahead of him. The DSC looks forward to collaborating with Dave in his new position with the University.”
       
      “I am honored and excited to have the opportunity to work for my alma mater, the University of Delaware,” said Arthur. “I understand the rich history and tradition of Delaware athletics and am eager to join Eric Ziady, (Senior Associate AD) Joe Shirley, and the entire athletics staff as we build upon that great legacy. It is a very exciting time to be on campus and I am thrilled to be able to utilize the first-class athletic facilities to help meet the University’s goals.”
       
      A native of Massapequa, N.Y., Arthur earned his degree in sport management from the University of Delaware in 2006. 
       
      After graduation, Arthur worked for the Newark, Del.-based Raymond Entertainment Group before joining Wilmington (Del.) Blue Rocks professional baseball club, where he held multiple positions, including the director of marketing. Most recently, Arthur served as the executive director of the Delaware Sports Commission since 2012. 
       
      The Delaware Sports Commission, which was formed in 2009, has as its mission to bid, recruit, and host regional and national sporting events at all levels of competition in the State for the purpose of utilizing sports facilities in the State, enhancing the economic development of the State, and promoting Delaware as a destination for amateur and professional sports.

      Talk about the upcoming preview in your own words:

       

      We have some returning varsity that will benefit from the height and athleticism that the new faces are bringing to the court.  We average about 6'1 in the middle of the floor, some of the tallest girls we have had in some time.  Our outsides are not the tallest but we are learning how to be resourceful with the ball when we face a big block.  We are young and still learning how to work with each other.  The coaches are excited to see which 6 work the best together.  All 12 of the girls have certain qualities that will make us successful throughout the 2014 season!

      Talk about the upcoming preview in your own words:  This season is going to be a last minute out-with-a-bang for our 10 returning seniors who want to go out with a better record than they have held for the last 3 years at Dover High School. As a brand new head coach, I see a lot of changes happening in the program and a lot of growth in the players. The group of girls that I have been given the opportunity to coach impress me with how willing they are to do anything and everything to learn as much as they can to better themselves.
