2,000 Students A Record Enrollment
"Mercyhurst's freshman class includes 200 men and 216 women. . . seventy-nine percent are campus residents"
Roth, who is entering his seventh year as director of enrollment services at the college, said that the Mercyhurst faculty has been a key factor in the school's enrollment success story. "Our controlled size gives us accessiblity to one another and that has always been one of the strengths of Mercyhurst. And it certainly is one that we guard because we know it to be among the prime reasons why many of our students come here," Roth added. Business remains the top drawing card among majors with 83 of the freshmen choosing it as their career path. Hotel Restaurant Management drew 69 new students, criminal justice 43, followed by 41 in education (elementary, early childhood and special ed), 32 in fashion merchandising and interior design, 26 in sportsmedicine, and 24 in music. Roth commented that "Right now, our demographic base is strongest in western Pennsylvania, western New York, and northeast Ohio, but we are going to go further afield in our recruiting to broaden that base this year. We are beginning to enroll significant numbers from Philadelphia, New England, and student numbers from the upper mid-west have been steadily growing. "In fact," Roth continued, "we will have a full-time recruiter in that part of the country this coming year." Mercyhurst also has continued to increase its international base of students as part of its admissions strategy. This year, the college has 60 foreign students including 25 from Canada, 19 from Ireland, 3 from England, 3 from South Africa, 2 from India, and one each from China, Costa Rica, Denmark, Kenya, Peru, Korea, Pakistan, and the Bahamas. "Our goal for the next decade is to have 1,500 applications, reject 500 students, and to enroll 400 from the remaining pool of 1,000 students," Roth projected. "We don't want to get any bigger," he acknowledged, "just better." "
When Mercyhurst opened its doors for the 62nd year, it welcomed a record breaking student body of 2,066 students and a freshman class that is the largest in the history of the college. Four hundred and fifteen freshmen began their college careers as members of the Mercyhurst Class of 1992. They were among 1,150 who applied for admission to the college. Another 105 students were admitted as transfer students. Included in the total head count are 463 adult college students, 111 students studying at Mercyhurst's Corry Center, 182 students enrolled in the Mercyhurst Career Institute, and 41 graduate students. "This year's record enrollment has nearly pushed the college past the number of students we can accommodate on our campus," explained Dr. William P. Garvey, who is in his ninth year as President of Mercyhurst. "It was for this reason that our college trustees directed us last March to cap the freshman class at approximately 400, and the total college enrollment at about 2,000" According to Andrew Roth, director of enrollment services at the college, "This is
the first time the college hit the 1,000 mark in freshman applications, and the first time in the 20 years of coeducation that male applicants outnumbered the women who applied." This year's freshman class SAT scores were 31 points over last year's due to a record number of rejections and more students coming from the top tenth of their high school class. "The core of the class is very, very strong," Roth emphasized. Garvey said that in placing limits on the college enrollment through an increase in admissions selectivity, trustees have opted for a higher quality student body that is consistent with the long-range goal for Mercyhurst to become one of the premier colleges in the region. Garvey was quick to praise his admissions team whose fulltime staff includes seven Mercyhurst graduates — four men and three women. Mercyhurst's freshman class includes 200 men and 216 women. Among these students are 127 Erie county residents, of which 48 live on campus. Seventy-nine percent of the total freshman class (330 students) are campus residents.
The Battle Of Lake Erie And The Perry-Elliot Controversy
by Dr. Allan Belovarac '73
n March of 1813, Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry reported for duty to Captain Isaac Chauncey, commander of American naval forces on the Great Lakes. Perry was shortly after given command of the rough-hewn fleet on Lake Erie which was in the process of construction, and he immediately threw himself into the task of completing, outfitting and manning his flotilla with boundless engergy and determination. By early August, Perry had succeeded in hauling the fleet over the sand bar at the entrance to Presque Isle Bay and set sail
for his rendezvous with destiny against his British counterpart, the one-armed veteran of Trafalgar, Robert Barclay. Perry emerged from the engagement a victor and celebrated hero, but his achievement was clouded by a dispute that swirled around the actions of Perry himself and those of his second-in-command, Jesse Duncan Elliot. Factions on both sides of the issue formed shortly after the battle and in large part contributed to the animosity that ultimately developed between Perry and Elliot. This writer would like to provide a brief sketch of what happened that September
day in 1813 that resulted in a bitter animosity between Perry and Elliot as well as their respective friends and supporters. The Battle of Lake Erie commenced just before noon on September 10 as the American fleet moved against the British from a windward position. This meant that Perry had the advantage of sailing with the wind, giving him more speed and maneuverability than his British counterparts. Perry welcomed his good fortune as he realized he would have to force a close action with Barclay if victory were to be won. Perry's lack of long range guns was
counterbalanced by a predominance of carronades which, once within range, were ship killers. With this in mind, Rsrry established his order of battle so that his main body, consisting of his flagship Lawrence, the Caledonia, and the Niagara, under Elliot, would engage the British ships Detroit, Hunter and Queen Charlotte respectively.
"Critics of Perry charged later that in placing the Niagara behind the Caledonia, he seriously hampered Elliot's movements. . "
On seeing the order of British vessels different from what he anticipated, Perry rearranged the order the Lawrence and the Niagara to better match up his own line with the British. The result was that the Caledoniay a slow-moving converted merchant vessel similar in size to the Hunter, separated the two more maneuverable brigs. Critics of Fterry charged later that in placing the Niagara behind the Caledonia, he seriously hampered Elliot's movements during the engagement.
"Perry's victory caught the imagination of a nation starved for victory, as he penned the cryptic but inspiring note: "We have met the enemy and they are ours
As the battle began, the British commenced firing with their long-range guns while Perry pressed the flagship Lawrence ahead as quickly as possible to employ his deadly carronadea Unfortunately, the fleet started to fall behind the Lawrence Seeing his ships drifting out of the battle and bearing the brunt of the British fire himself, Perry had the order vocally passed down the line to close up the line and engage the assigned opponent. Nevertheless, Perry's fleet continued to get strung out as his own ship, the Lawrence, became the focus of firing from the British vessels Detroit, Hunter and Queen Charlotte Finally, the Lawrence drew within carronade range supported by two small schooners and the Caledonia, which was struggling to keep up. However, as Perry's supporters later claimed, the Niagara continued to fall back instead of closing up so that she could effectively make use of her deadly battery of carronades. Elliot's sympathizers contended that the light winds were the cause for the Lawrence not receiv-
ing support from the other ships, yet, the British ship Queen Charlotte was able to move up, passing the Hunter to support the Detroit. The Lawrence, under a blistering fire from all three vessels, soon became heavily damaged while the Niagara was relatively unscathed. About 2:30 pm, the Niagara finally pulled clear of the Caledonia and was heading toward the head of the British line as the devastated Lawrence, now a battered hulk, drifted out of the battle. While Elliot was moving up the line, Perry made his famous passage from his flagship to the Niagara The battle then moved to its final phase as Perry headed his new flagship into a raking position ahead of the Detroit whereby he could face his broadside into the bow of the Detroit and send a wall of shot down the length of her. As the Detroit and Queen Charlotte maneuvered to prevent Perry from doing this, they collided and became entangled, thus rendering themselves helpless before the deadly guns of the Niagara. From this position, Perry pounded his opponents into submission, forcing their surrender shortly thereafter. Perry's victory caught the imagination of a nation starved for victory as he penned his cryptic but inspiring note to General William Henry Harrison, "We have met the enemy, and they are ours. . ." In the aftermath of the battle, discussion immediately arose regarding Elliot's conduct with the Niagara during the engagement. Critics of Elliot charged that his two hour delay before entering the battle was deliberate and considered the reason to be either treachery prompted by jealousy of Perry, cowardice, or the hope of gaining glory for himself. These critics firmly believed that by waiting for the moment when all seemed lost, Elliot was seeking to claim credit for the victory. On the other hand, Elliot's defenders countered that the line of battle had been established by Perry and it was his duty not to break it. Since Elliot's position was behind the Caledonia, he had no right to alter that line, and to do so would have made him guilty of the grossest insubordinaton. These defenders argued that Perry was the best judge of how much damage had occurred on the Lawrence, and a signal from him would have been expected if he desired a change in position. No such signal was forthcoming. Another point of contention that emerged after the battle ended was whether Elliot was indeed heading away from the action when Perry boarded. The claim is that Perry, after assuming command of the Niagara, put on more sail and changed course ninety degrees to the right to bring his new flagship into close action. However, accounts favorable to Elliot state that Elliot was actually moving toward the enemy line when Perry came aboard, and indeed was in close action before Perry arrived. In his
action report to the Secretary of the Navy, Perry spoke of Elliot in a most complimentary manner. The sequence of events listed in the report spoke of Perry going aboard the Niagara after a freshening breeze had allowed Elliot to come into the fray. At first, Perry did not allow himself to become involved in the controversy, but was finally drawn into it at the prodding of his associates and in reaction to Elliot's continuing insistence on Perry clearing his name. The dispute blew all out of proportion mainly from the efforts of interested partisans on both sides. Relations between Perry and Elliott became so strained that Elliot ultimately challenged Perry to a duel (which Perry refused), while Perry demanded that the Secretary of the Navy courtmartial Elliot for his actions in the battle (which was never acted upon). It would probably never have grown so heated had it been confined to the two principal figures. Long after it should have been forgotten, the matter was magnified far out of proportion by the defenders of each man using circumstantial evidence and conflicting accounts to prove their point one way or another.
\. . the principal characters in the Battle of Lake Erie were quite human. . . they experienced feelings of pride, jealousy, and an intense concern for their personal reputations"
After a careful examination of the available material, it appears to this writer that Elliot's only real guilt seems to have been a reluctance to adjust to changing battle conditions. The Lawrence suffered badly as a result of his failure to react quickly, but to imply motivations of jealousy, treachery and cowardice does not do justice to the man. It would also have been better for him to have kept out of the resulting controversy which only further damaged his reputation. Perry made the same mistake as he allowed himself to be drawn into the conflict after originally remaining clear of it. His complete reversal from defending to condemning Elliot make his credibility and intentions vulnerable to attack. If anything, the controversy has made it abundantly clear t h a t the principal characters in the Battle of Lake Erie were quite human, that they experienced feelings of pride, jealousy, and an intense concern for their personal reputations. They apparently let these feelings get the best of them and created a controversy that was almost as fiery as the battle itself.

Sportsmedicine: A Super Major of the 90s
by Karen Merkle '84
A few years ago, most people didn't know much about sports medicine; they were the guys with the first aid kits who paced the sidelines at football games, right? And who would have thought that a college degree in the field would ever be a possibility? But once again, Mercyhurst was at the forefront of educational advancement with a Sportsmedicine major that has become one of the most popular not only with students, but also with employers who rate Mercyhurst's program as one of the best. It all began when the college administration looked into offering a physical therapy curriculum but found the costs of starting one up prohibitive. Thoughts then turned to sports medicine, a related field but not as expensive to operate. The college developed its program to concentrate not only on athletic injuries, but also broadened the term to include overall wellness and holistic health. In March of £985, Mercyhurst was officially approved by the state to offer a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sportsmedicine. It was only the third college in the nation to offer such a program, and it is a true sports medicine major — it's not housed in the physical education or biology departments, lb this day it remains the most comprehensive program of its kind within a 100 mile radius, and this year drew 26 Freshmen to take advantage of it.
"Students entering the Sportsmedicine department choose from three 'tracks' or areas of specialization... the Wellness Track, the Athletic Training Track, or the Pre-Med Track."
Program director Janet Price and certified trainer Bradley Jacobson have been with the Sportsmedicine department from the beginning. It was their input — with the help of an understanding administration — that allowed Mercyhurst to take a unique approach to the field, to somewhat deemphasize the medicine aspect and focus instead on "a more holistic concept of health," Price explains, "to substitute the positive for the negative and promote a quality lifestyle." Students entering the Sportsmedicine department have the opportunity to choose from three "tracks", or areas of specialization: they are the Wellness Track, the Athletic Training Track, or the Pre-Med Track. All majors though must take the 12 core courses that range from Anatomy, Human Growth and Development, Psychology, and Physics to more specialized classes like Kinesiology, Sociology of Sport, Theory/ Techniques of Emergency Health Care, and Basic Care and Prevention of Athletic Injuries.
The Wellness Track is Price's field of expertise. This area doesn't merely emphasize working with athletes — in fact, it's quite the opposite: it stresses the usefulness of fitness programs for the general populace. Students are prepared to become, for example, fitness specialists at gyms and health centers, or to develop corporate fitness programs for business and industry, l b that end, additional courses in marketing, management, and administration round out the education a good wellness practitioner needs. And though they often deal with the business end of health, that doesn't take away from their true mission. "We heavily emphasize physical fitness, but also good nutrition and stress management," Price explains. Though the image of an athletic trainer is still one of icing sprained ankles and taping bruised ribs, the emphasis now is on prevention rather than cure. The Athletic Trainer Track, headed by Brad Jacobson and housed in a new facility next to the Campus Center, teaches students to prepare athletes for an injury-free season, and also to evaluate injuries and prescribe rehabilitation. Trainers help coaches of most sports to plan good pre-season conditioning to prevent the maximum number of injuries. But when injuries do occur, yes, it's the trainer on the sidelines or in the locker room who's
Trainers Association (NATA), the governing body of the profession. The exam, offered four times a year in different parts of the country, consists of written, oral, and simulation tests. "Our graduates attest to the quality of our program: all have passed the test," Jacobson reports.
"When you have a healthrelated major, you have to have a high caliber student. They'll be dealing with people's lives.''
All students in the major must go before a review board at the end of their Sophomore year. Performance and grades are evaluated. This is done, Jacobson explains, to maintain the quality of the program, and because, "when you have a health-related major, you have to have a high-caliber student. They'll be dealing with people's lives." While there is no mandatory testing of graduates from the Wellness school, Price adds that a certification from the American College of Sports Medicine is a highly and medically respected badge of honor. Certification is available for a fitness/exercise specialist, a cardiac rehabilitation specialist, or a director of fitness. There are also various certifications in such fields as aerobic dancing and weight training.
often the first one there to examine and treat the athlete. And before graduation, Wellness and Athletic Training majors will have put in some grueling internship hours. Student trainers are assigned to each sports team on campus to work and travel with the athletes before and during the season. They are also allowed to work and observe at the Hamot Sports Medicine Center. In total, 1500 hours of clinical work are necessary. In the Wellness Track, students follow up the theory (classroom work) with the experiential (internship). Currently student assistants are being used in the on-campus fitness testing lab that Price has set up near her office. The goal of the testing center is to evaluate a person's current physical condition, suggest ways to improve it, and help the person plan for a healthy lifestyle. While currently most of the testing is done manually, some can be done by computer, and Price hopes to have a computer in the lab in the future. The Pre-Medical Track is heavily concentrated in the human sciences — biology and chemistry predominate. Students who complete this course of study have prepared themselves for medical school and can work toward a field of specialization. And in addition to these three tracks, a teacher's certification in biology is also offered. One reason for this, Jacobson suggests, is that many high schools, who would benefit from someone with this wellness and training experience, may need him or her to do more than just work on their students' health. "There is always a need for competent biology teachers," he explained. Upon graduation, Jacobson's students won't "officially" be athletic trainers but they will be prepared to take the Certifying exam offered by the National Athletic
. . . about 99 percent of Mercyhurst's sportsmedicine graduates have been placed. . . one of the graduates is developing a corporate fitness program for Dow Chemical."
The fact that about 99 percent of Mercyhurst's Sportsmedicine graduates have been placed further validates the program's success. Within the Athletic Training Track, all the graduates have either gone on to graduate school in sports medicine or found work in the field. Three of Jacobson's trainers are now employed at the Hamot Sports Medicine Center, another is the head trainer at Behrend, and several more are working throughout the East. One of Price's graduates is working on developing a corporate fitness program for Dow Chemical. One student decided to go into physical therapy after graduation and is enrolled at
the University of Pittsburgh; another, from Mercyhurst's Pre-med program, is attending medical school in Philadelphia. "You can see that the impact of the program is being felt right in our area " Jacobson says. "But from all over, program directors are now looking for Mercyhurst graduatea It already has a reputation as a first-class program" For the moment at least, with the program practically taking on a life of its own, all Price and Jacobson have to do is hang on. If the athletic training program keeps growing at the rate it has been — currently about 75 percent of all Sportsmedicine majors are in the Athletic Training Track — a third trainer may have to be hired to take some of the pressure off Jacobson and his colleague Lisa Bruno. Jacobson also reports that the NATA must evaluate the Mercyhurst program in order to accredit it. He says there should be no problem with that as the program has been set up according to NATA regulations and guidelines. While application for evaluation will be made this fall, there is a two year grace period: accreditation should be forthcoming in the fall of 1990. "We feel it's a very demanding curriculum, very complete and thorough," Jacobson now says, although he admits to some skepticism about the success of the program when it was first suggested. He needn't have worried; Sportsmedicine looks to be one of the supermajors of the '90s, and Mercyhurst is leading the way.

What Is A Mercy College?
But where does that leave us today? "A contemporary Catholic education," Sr. Maura said, "should be characterized by Christian values and tradition; academic excellence; a global vision; and orientation toward service and toward the future. A Mercy college also has special orientation to women and the materially poor." The educational philosophy has been best described as "Christian liberal arts"; that implies, she continued, that "the curriculum forms minds to a correct view of the universe and man's (and woman's) place in it as social and intelligent beings . . . and the milieu created is one where JudeoChrisitan values are accepted norms of behavior." She went on to challenge each member of the Mercyhurst community to compare the reality of the college today with its stated mission, to examine its curriculum and judge the ultimate product that is the result of a Mercy education.
Message, witness, service. With those three words, Sister Maura Smith succinctly defined the mission of a Mercy education in a lunchtime presentation to members of the Mercyhurst College faculty at the annual opening day workshop. "What is a Mercy College?" was the theme of the lecture, and the answers Sr. Maura, superior of the Erie Mercy order, provided to that question centered on the level of commitment to humankind in the students who receive a Mercy education. A question left largely unanswered was how deeply that commitment is felt and responded to by Mercyhurst graduates, and how any lack in the fostering of social concern can be corrected by the administration, faculty, and the students themselves. Tb first understand why a Mercy education is what it is, one must understand what it was, and what it was intended to be, Sr. Maura explained. "Early American Catholic colleges were founded by older religious orders of men, such as the Jesuits," she began. "American religious women then came to the rescue of women. The Sisters of Mercy developed colleges as extensions of their academics, educated their members, formed excellent faculties, and built the buildings at great expense to themselves." All of the Mercy colleges still in existence today — about 15 in number — can trace their roots back to the first great woman of the movement, Catherine McAuley, foundress of the Sisters of Mercy. "Catherine McAuley of Dublin, Ireland clearly recognized that the way for women to escape poverty and oppression was
through education" Sr. Maura continued. She progressively promoted reasonably priced primary and secondary education for the middle class and free schooling for the poor. That spirit was emigrated to the United States by Sister Frances Warde, who opened her Mercy convent school in Pittsburgh, continued across the country establishing educational facilities, and promoted not only schooling for the young, but also adult education for both men and women in the form of night schools. The third woman of great vision bore a name highly recognizable to everyone in the Mercyhurst community. Mother Borgia Egan brought the tenets of Mercy education to Erie by founding the Mercyhurst Seminary and College in 1926. Her ideals were carried on in the person of Sister Carolyn Herrmann, who, Sr. Maura reminded, "had the foresight to accommodate to the needs of the time." She added that there have been and are many other "dedicated Sisters of Mercy who have nurtured the Mercy tradition of excellence."
We must question ourselves: Does the social message of the Church — and the news of Christ's word — permeate our classes, seminars, forums? What is our record in encouraging a global awareness, a realization of the interdependence of all peoples and the dependence of all on a healthy planet Earth? And, not of least importance, how do we foster service? Do our students get hands-on experience working for and with others? "Service to others helps them to overcome self centeredness and grow in humane Christian attitudes," Sr. Maura stressed. "My plea to you . . . is that we take a long hard look a this special college to see if we do what we say we do. "Our challenge," she concluded, "is to call ourselves back to the ideals expressed in our mission statement: to foster the growth and development of a Christian community dedicated to excellence in all areas — moral, spiritual, intellectual, creative, aesthetic, and, yes, athletic as well. As Sisters of Mercy, we sponsor institutions to address our enduring concerns. Tbgether with our co-workers and those we serve, we endeavor to model justice and to promote systemic change."
On The Hill
McQuillen Named Dean
to campus before deciding to recommend an interim dean while continuing their search. He noted that McQuillen's appointment on a permanent basis "would take one of our finest faculty members out of the classroom entirely. And Teaching is Mike's first love." Garvey said that as interim dean, Dr. McQuillen will teach one course a year to keep in touch with students. "We will have to see if Dr. McQuillen wants to make the permanent career change from teacher to administrator," Garvey said. "Dr. McQuillen is highly respected as a scholar and teacher among his peers, and in his new administrative post, I have asked him to concentrate on faculty development," he added. McQuillen, a tenured faculty member at Mercyhurst, holds a Ph.D. in history from the University of Virginia, where he was a Woodrow Wilson Fellow. Dean McQuillen has been a member of the Mercyhurst College faculty policies and rank and tenure committees, former chairman of the division of social sciences, and a former director of the Egan Honors Program. For the past several years, he has written and lectured extensively on the subject of Star Wars and nuclear weapons. He and his wife, the former Joy Knoll, have three children, David, Daniel, and Carolyn.
Dukakis Visits 'Hurst
Dr. Michael J. McQuillen, a professor of history and faculty member at Mercyhurst for 17 years, has been named interim academic dean at the college. He succeeds Dr. David D. Palmer, who has been named assistant to the president with special duties as coordinator of the arts. Palmer had been chief academic officer of the college since 1980. According to college President Dr. William Garvey, "McQuillen's appointment will be as an interim dean for a period of up to two years." Garvey explained that last year a 10-member search committee had screened more than 100 applicants for the academic post and brought three candidates
Presidential hopeful Michael Dukakis chose Mercyhurst College as the site to deliver his "Education and Our Future" address on April 22, as part of his preconvention campaigning. Speaking in the Zurn Recital Hall, Dukakis told the Mercyhurst student body and Erie community members, "I believe the most important educational priority facing this nation is the teaching profession. "Over the next five to ten years, one half of our public school teachers will retire. And their replacements are nowhere in sight. We already have 35,000 teaching vacancies in this country; and the shortage is greatest where the need is worse — in science and math and foreign languages. We've got to make teaching an honored and valued profession once again."
269 Receive Degrees From 'Hurst
Degrees were conferred on 269 students at the Mercyhurst College commencement May 22. One hundred and twenty-eight Erie area students were among the recipients, and ten of the local graduates were among 16 students selected by the college as 1988 award winners. The commencement address was delivered by Dr. Daniel Bratton, President of Chautauqua Institution in Chautauqua, New York. Bratton is the former President of Kansas Wesleyan College. The top student honor, the Carpe Award, went to Michael Kelly, a student from Sutton, Ireland who came to Mercyhurst to major in hotel-restaurant management. Kelly was recognized for his personal integrity, social competence, and intellectual habits. He had been a four-year dean's list scholar, president of the student government, a college senator, and an ex-officio member of the board of trustees. He was the college's first recipient of the J.F. Kennedy Scholarship. Kelly has been hired by Marriott Corporation and is working in Cleveland, Ohio, where he is one of the foodservice managers at John Carroll University. Other students winning awards were: Paul A. Cefrick, Pulaski, Pennsylvania, who received the Archbishop John Mark Gannon Award in recognition of general scholastic excellence; Ellen M. Owen, of Erie, Pennsylvania, who received the Mother M. Catherine McAuley Award; Christohper J. Cuzzola, also of Erie, who received the Sister Carolyn Herrmann Alumni Service Award; Amy S. Ward of East Springfield, who was presented the Sister M. Eustace Tkylor Leadership Award; and Betsey C. Glenn of Shaker Heights, Ohio, who won the James V. Kinnane Graduate Student Award. Also presented were eight President's Associates Achievement Awards given in recognition of high achievement in an academic area. The awards went to Kimberly A. Mastrian, Farrell, Pennsylvania (education); Scott R. Donnelly, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (hotel-restaurant management); P&ul A. Cefrick (natural sciences and mathematics); and to Erie students Marc McAndrew (business); Kathleen A. Ziegler, (human development-sportsmedicine); Ann M. Johnson, (Humanities); Jerome F. Anderson, Jr., (performing arts-music); and Larry J. Dombrowski of Wattsburg, (social sciences-criminal justice).

When the 66 music majors returned to campus this fall, their school of music had a new address. The finishing touches were being added to the $1.6 million D'Angelo School of Music, a splendid structure that attaches to the back of Zurn Hall. The 17,440 sq. ft. building replicates the famous Juilliard School of Music, but on a smaller scale.
'The D'Angelo building is the finest musical facility in the tri-state region/'
The three-story facility was designed by Erie architect Orlando Salata, who worked on its design for a year and a half with Sam Rotman, D'Angelo director. And according to Rotman, "The D Angelo building is the finest musical facility in the tri-state region. It has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the music arts." Rotman said that college officials brought in an acoustical consultant from Boston to assure that the structure would be as acoustically pure as possible. As a result, the walls are double studded and double insulated, and more than a foot of concrete and insulation was poured between floors. Dedication ceremonies will be held October 16, when the facility will be named to honor its benefactors, Dr. George and Mary DAngelo, who eight years ago gave $1 million in seed money to establish a school of music. The D'Angelos will be recognized for their commitment to the performing arts in America, and for fostering and supporting the musical arts in Erie and at Mercyhurst. Mercyhurst's new D'Angelo School resembles Juilliard in its design concept that provides one floor for practice, another for private teaching instruction, and a third floor for classroom teaching and ensemble
rehearsals. And like Juilliard, the teaching classrooms have skylights and special outdoor lighting. In addition, Mercyhurst's ensemble room, like Juilliard's has a 13' ceiling to provide unblemished acoustical conditions for up to 70 ensemble players. On the main floor, there are eight faculty studios, and a 1,000 sq. ft. music library housing 6,000 records and 8,000 music scores. The library is equipped with 28 study modules, of which 16 are equipped with listening equipment, such as a tape deck, turntable, and compact disc player. The main floor is also the site of a magnificent brick walled lobby, double glass doors, a 40 ft. skylight, and a floor of polished granite that also leads into Zurn Hall. u
The building replicates the famous Juilliard School of Music but on a smaller scale"
The second floor has 25 practice rooms of various sizes and each has either a grand piano or conservatory upright. On the lower level, there are four classrooms for music instruction, a 1,000 sq. ft. ensemble rehearsal room, a percussion room, and extensive space for music lockers. One of the most interesting features of the D'Angelo building is found on the second floor of the practice rooms, where the 35 windows are each etched with a musical note. Some are in black representing quarter notes, and the others are in silver denoting half notes. When viewed in their entirety, the windows carry the first line of the piece, "The Great Gate of Kiev," from the composition "Pictures at an Exhibition" by Russian composer Modeste Mussorgsky. The D'Angelo music school had been located for five years at St. Mark's Center on East Grandview Boulevard. And for the music students and music faculty, the new facility is quite a homecoming.

As families across the nation gathered to observe America's 212th birthday, the Mercyhurst campus played host to an estimated 10,000 Erieites at the college's annual "Old Fashioned Fourth of J u l y " celebration. College President Dr. William Garvey, who started the Independence Day Celebration for the Erie Community four years ago, sees the celebration as part of the institution's town-gown commitment. "It's our gift to the city and her people, and our way of extending our appreciation for the community support we receive. In addition, it gives Erie the kind of Fourth of July celebration that many cities across the country enjoy," Garvey explained. The celebration included main stage performances of contemporary and traditional American bluegrass tunes, Top 40 music, an old fashioned picnic supper, entertainment by the Erie Commodore Perry Barbershop Quartet, and a vaudeville and mime show. The evening was highlighted by a lawn concert performed by the 33-piece Erie Concert Band, and climaxed with a spectacular display of fireworks on the back campus.
Promoting the Performing Arts
Putting the 'arts' back into 'liberal arts' is a top priority this year thanks to a determined effort on the part of the Mercyhurst administration and faculty. Led by Dr. David Palmer, newly-appointed Coordinator for Promoting the Performing Arts and Mercyhurst's delegate to the Arts Council of Erie, the college has renewed its commitment to fostering a healthy creative atmoshpere on campus, encouraging more cooperative relationships between the school's various performing arts departments, and training students to be among the best-prepared artisans in their fields upon graduation. Young Artist Competition is one of the most renowned of its kind in the world," he added. Each year the competition has drawn capacity crowds, so next year, for the first time, the event will be held in the Warner Theatre, with the contestants accompanied, also for the first time, by a full orchestra. "It's a great showcase for talents from around the country and the world," Dr. Palmer added. "Mercyhurst College has truly begun to establish itself with a national reputation for this very prestigious event." Not that the other performing artists on campus are slouching in the prestige department. The dancers present a number of productions each season, both on and off campus. But with the new oak floor on the Zurn Recital Hall stage, they won't have to be going off campus as much — only for large stage presentations, or when more seating room is necessary. And in addition to the regular theatre productions (which this year will include "H.M.S. Pinafore" and "Our Tbwn"), The National Playwrights Showcase (NPS) has just concluded another successful season.

Palmer and the rest of the people involved with the arts at Mercyhurst haven't all been reached. Last year the dance, music, and theatre departments joined forces to present a milestone production of "A Chorus Line." Dr. Palmer hopes there are more such cooperative ventures in the future. Similarly, another goal involving an intermingling of disciplines would be to have a Mercyhurst orchestra play for dance productions. "We're beginning to look for ways the departments can collaborate," Dr. Palmer explained, " . . . ways in which thay can reinforce one another" He and Mercyhurst President Dr. William Garvey are also looking to cultivate a stronger relationship with Erie's high school for the performing arts. Dr. Garvey is involved as a trustee for the Foundation for the Performing and Visual Arts, an umbrella organization that encompasses the performing arts school. He is planning to establish a four-year Mercyhurst scholarship to be awarded to a promising student from the performing arts school. "The college has been very committed to establishing and supporting the arts at Mercyhurst," Dr. Palmer concluded. "Now we want the community to understand that not only is Mercyhurst where the arts are, but that they are welcome to attend and see what we can do."
"This metamorphis of the arts actually began a few years ago with the establishment of a Division of Performing Arts'"
The reverberations of this effort will not only be felt on campus in the form of increased activity in the dance, music, and theatre departments, but also in the surrounding community as well, as the people of the city are made aware of the quality of Mercyhurst's cultural offerings and are invited to take advantage of them. This metamorphosis of the arts acutally began a few years ago with the establishment of the Division of Performing Arts. 'Tor years the college has been trying to be seen as the school for the performing arts," Dr. Palmer said. "Mercyhurst has a long tradition in that area," he continued, "We've always had theatre productions here, at least three every year, and it was 15 years ago, in 1973, that we introduced our dance department." But perhaps the best example of growth has been witnessed in the music department. Enrollment in the D'Angelo School of Music has nearly quadrupled in the past three years. A new music building — $1.6 million, three-level, 17,440-square-foot center of offices, practice halls, and classrooms will be christened this fall. Palmer, a former dean of the college and now special assistant to the President, noted that the college's recital series not only brings some of the most exceptional musical talent in the world to Erie, it gets hundreds of people to attend. "And the D'Angelo

This Mercyhurst-based organization solicits plays from writers from around the country; committeepersons evaluate each play, winners are selected, and those plays are produced using local talent at the Mercyhurst Little Theatre. This year, for the first time, the plays were presented in a festival format, each play running one night each weekend for a month from mid-August to mid-September, thus giving the returning Mercyhurst students an opportunity to attend. Many previous NPS winners have gone on to be produced off-Broadway or by other community theatre groups. The experiment has paid off in that NPS is now respected in the field of theatre much as the D'Angleo is in the field of music: each is hailed for its commitment to the discovery of new talent.

MERCYHURST MAGAZINE
The Magic of the Musician and Minister
This summer, even when just about everything else in Sam Rotman's St. Mark's office was packed and ready for the move to the new music building on the Mercyhurst campus, Beethoven, for the moment, was reprieved. Rotman, the renowned concert pianist currently entering his third year as director of the D'Angelo School of Music, is recognized as a Beethoven specialist. That explains the display of Beethoven albums and manuscripts, and the statues that peer over his shoulder as he sits at the desk that will find a new home in his new office on main campus. "Beethoven's music runs such a gamut of emotion and quality," he enthuses; not coincidentally, Rotman himself faces each aspect of his life with a heady dose of that emotion. The benefit of that to Mercyhurst College and the D'Angelo School is a level of quality t h a t is measurably increasing each year as Rotman continues to man the helm. Since 1986, the School has shown tremendous progress. The 17 music majors of two years ago have grown to number 66. The D'Angelo Young Artist Competition, of which Rotman is executive director, is annually recognized as one of the premiere events of its kind in the country, if not in the world. Through the recital series, Rotman has worked to bring first rate classical artists to Erie, with an overwhelming response that averages about 1,000 in attendance per concert. And now the new music building, what Rotman calls "the most up-to-date facility for music in the tri-state area", will be opened this fall. An impressive list of administrative achievements for a man touted by Keynote Magazine as "a pianist with abundant potential", following his debut at the age of 16 with the San Antonio Symphony. He had begun life in 1950, born six months after his immigrant parents (Romanian father, Czechoslovakian mother) came to America and settled in Texas. He began playing the piano at the age of nine, and received bachelor and master of music degrees from The Juilliard School, where his teacher, Jacob Lateiner, first introduced him to the music of Beethoven that he would come to love so fervently. Rotman was even featured in a 1970 public television special celebrating the 200th anniversary of Beethoven's birth. After graduation in 1973, Rotman entered the Fourth International Beethoven Competition in Vienna; he was a winner, the one winner who had not studied at the Vienna Conservatory, duties now consume much of his time, he still enjoys teaching piano majors and an occasional honors music appreciation course. Rotman still seems amazed at the changes he's seen in the School of Music during the last few years; he attributes much of that success to the Mercyhurst administration. "The offices of the President and the Dean have been tremendous in allowing me to see our concepts and dreams become reality," he says. "Of course the music faculty has done an excellent job. And the school owes so much to Dr. George D'Angelo. It's really been a partnership between Dr. D'Angelo's generosity and the school's support." But there's always more to be done, and Sam Rotman has the initiative to do it. The D'Angelo Competition has already become one of international reputation that draws world-famous judges and the highest caliber contestants; in fact, it's such a hard to come by ticket that next year, for the first time, it will be held in the spacious Warner Theatre with the pianists accompanied by the premiere edition of the D'Angelo Competition Orchestra, hopefully to be conducted by Walter Hendl and comprised of professional musicians selected just for the event. An ultimate goal of Rotman's concerning the competition is to have its winner be a student of the D'Angelo School. For the School of Music itself, Rotman would like to boast of an enrollment of 110-120 music majors; he'd like to see Mercyhurst support its own symphony orchestra and other ensembles, including a good opera company and vocal department; and he'd like, on a more regular basis to join forces with other performing arts departments on campus (dance, theatre) to present productions like last season's "A Chorus Line". "I would hope," he says, "that the students from Mercyhurst would be able to go out and compete with students from Eastman, Juilliard, and Peabody. We want to prepare the students to go to the best possible graduate schools." Down whichever path the D'Angelo School heads, Rotman has plans to be there to navigate. "I love my church, my family, and I like Erie very much," he says. "I think this school is doing very well, and I would like to continue to guide it." And knowing Sam Rotman, he'll probably go at it with all the intensity of Beethoven's Fifth.
renowned for its Beethoven. He went on to participate — and win — in four other piano competitions in the U.S. and Europe. In 1978, he was a contestant in the prestigious Sixth International Tfchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow. ' T h a t ' s comparable to the Super Bowl here," Rotman remembers. "It's broadcast on national TV, it's a very big event. It was definitely the highlight of my musical life." Rotman then spent several years performing on concert tours. But what originally brought him to Erie was something that happened to him while a student at Juilliard: it was there that Rotman made a strong commitment to personal faith in Christ. "It's of the utmost importance to me and a driving influence in all that I do," he explains. "I attribute a lot of what I've been able to accomplish to God, who has given me the strength and perserverance." So in 1979, Rotman accepted the position as pastor of the Harborcreek Evangelical Free Church and moved, with his wife Deborah and their children Simeon, now 14, Anna, 12, and nine-year-old Sarah, to the Erie area. He was contacted here by Mercyhurst's then music department head Dr. Louis Mennini, whose late brother, Peter, was the president of Juilliard when Rotman studied there. Mennini encouraged Rotman to try teaching, and in the fall of 1981, Sam joined the Mercyhurst music faculty. Since then, he has continued to tour some, and he has performed a number of concerts at Mercyhurst. He has also appeared three times with the Erie Philharmonic as guest soloist. And though his administrative

Ann Lecker Jackson '63 Her Gift Of Thanks

venture turned to good fortune. As Ann explained it, about a year ago, her husband had the opportunity to buy into Cain Chemical, an employee-owned company in Houston, where he is an environmental engineer. The couple decided to invest their savings, and trusted in God that things would work out. And once again they did. This year, Occidential Petroleum purchased Cain Chemical and as a result of that buyout, the Jacksons have become financially independent. "When we sat down to decide who would benefit from our good fortune, Steve and I both wanted Mercyhurst on that list. And since this is my 25th year class reunion, $25,000 sounded like the right figure. We've established the Jackson Scholarship Fund at Mercyhurst College to yearly benefit a needy student such as I was at 17. "And that makes me very happy. But the two people it has made the happiest are my parents — 97-year old Alfred and 88-year old Salome Lecker who still live in St. Marys. Jackson added, "I will always remember seeing my dad's tears of pride when I graduated. How could I forget the college that made my parents so happy that day?" she asked. "How could I forget the memories of people like Sr. Susanne, Sr. Angelica, Sr. Carolyn, or Anne Francis Cavanaugh?" Then she paused and with a twinkle in her eyes, mused, "and how could I ever forget Sr. Eustace! Cadets were not allowed to get engaged in those days. But I had a ring until Sr. Eustace handed me the ultimatum: "Ann Lecker, you either give that ring back or you are out of the program." And so to Sr. Eustace, Ann Lecker Jackson sends a special thanks: you see, that ring she gave back did not belong to Steve!" Ann Jackson is the director of a preschool at St. Bernadette's Catholic Church, where she supervises 10 teachers and 110 preschoolers and kindergarten youngsters. For the past 15 years, Ann and Steve have taught adult Bible studies They reside with their two younger children at 16527 Clearcrest Drive, Houston, TX 77059. Their two older children attend Texas A&M University.
Ann Lecker Jackson graduated from Mercyhurst in 1963. Twenty-five years later, she celebrated the occasion by giving the college $25,000. But 29 years ago, Ann Lecker from St. Marys, Pennsylvania, didn't want to go to Mercyhurst. Her heart was set on Penn State. "I received a $500 Senatorial scholarship, but that was not enough to get me there," she explained. "I was one of six children, and I was born late in my parent's life. By the time I was ready for college, my dad was retired. He was 68 and my mother was 59 years old." About the same time that Ann received notice of the Senatorial scholarship, she also received a letter from Mercyhurst College telling her that she had been accepted into the Cadet Tbachers Program. The college and Erie Catholic Diocese offered her free tuition, room and board at Mercyhurst in exchange for two years of fulltime teaching in a parish school during her sophomore and senior yeara For Ann's parents, it was almost too good to be true. Their youngest child, who was determined to go away to college, was going to be able to do just that. But Ann wasn't as enthusiastic: it wasn't Penn State. And so while 17-year old Ann Lecker wrestled with the good news-bad news, her parents simplified the choice: "Ann, it's either Mercyhurst or you stay home and work" Ann came to Mercyhurst and loved every minute of it. 'Those four years were very special to me," she said. "They were a time to mature, to find out who I was . . . they were years filled with people who helped put life into perspective for me."
Jackson is deeply grateful to the Sisters of Mercy who began the cadet program. "It enabled me to get a college degree, and that led me down a totally different path of life from the one I would have traveled without additional education. I really believe that," she emphasized. As a young girl, Ann described herself as ( more impressionable than religious.' "It is only when you look back on your life that you are able to understand the importance of some of the early seeds planted by those who had experienced life a generation before you. "It takes more than mastering textbooks to cope with the cards life deals us," Jackson reflected. "I have the Sisters of Mercy to thank for developing in me an inner strength and for planting the seeds of a budding spirituality that took root in a time of adversity and since have become the cornerstone of my life." And then she explained, "It was eight years after graduation. The year was 1971. The doctors removed a cancerous tumor from my husband, Steve. The prognosis was not good. "Steve and I turned to God for strength and sought healing through prayer. We began to seek new meaning in our lives. Our relationship was no longer Steve and Ann. It was Steve, Ann, and God. And here it is, 17 years, four tumors, and four operations later! The three of us are still together. And we are most grateful." The Jacksons were doubly blessed last year. Once with Steve's quick recovery when the doctors removed another tumor from his lungs, and a second time when his business
Costello Joins Cardinals
ing Class A ball in Erie, I learned quickly that I would need more than just speed." Since his professional debut with the Erie Cardinals in 1983, Costello moved up the ladder toward his dream each year. And in addition to developing a slider and a change-up to compliment his fastball, he was moved from a starter to the bullpen. One of the highlights of his minor league career was the 1985 season where he finished the season with 127 strikeouts. This season, Costello received the promotion to the big leagues on May 31, after recording 11 saves at Louisville (Class AAA). Two days later, five years after being selected in the 25th round of the free agent draft, St. Louis head coach Whitey Herzog was forced to summon Costello to the mound. This was despite Herzog's intention to bring Costello along slowly. Costello entered the game with the bases loaded and one-out in the 13th inning at Philadelphia. Two-outs later, Costello was floating on a cloud into the dugout. He had made it out of the jam unscathed. He proceeded to strike out the side in the 14th to earn his first major league victory. Now, less than four months later, Costello's position on the St. Louis roster is relatively secure. He had just received some additional security the day of this August 16th interview. "With today's trade of John Tudor, I have a spot on the roster for the remainder of the season," said Costello. "In fact, Whitey (Herzog) has said that the only way I would not be on the team next year would be if I pitched myself off. Obviously, I do not anticipate doing that." Another thing which he doesn't plan on doing is to drive limosines . . . at least not someone else's. In the past off-seasons, he would return to New York and drive limos to make extra money. "I actually made more money driving than I did pitching," revealed Costello. However, with his promotion to the big leagues, Costello's salary jumped from the neighborhood of $12,000 to nearly $70,000 when his incentives are included. And while on the subject of incentives, Costello is also a newlywed. John and his wife, Marie, also a New York native, were married January 30th of this year. They intend to make St. Louis their new home. And like a dream come true, they hope to live happily ever after.

Copeland Heads Hoopers
From the moment we are introduced to the Hurst until long after we graduate, we are reminded to "seize the opportunity." Not many Mercyhurst athletes have done this more consistently than 1983 alum, John Costello. Costello graduated from Mercyhurst with a bachelor's degree in police science and started "seizing the opportunity" during his junior year in a Laker baseball uniform. His earned run average of 1.12 led all NCAA Division II pitchers in the country. With the assistance of his coach, the late Gary Cordes, Costello caught the attention of a few professional scouts when he averaged 10.7 strikeouts per outing. Costello says that it was Cordes who opened the door for him. "He saw I had potential. He pushed me to get signed," reflects the 27-year old righthander. "Coach Cordes was a good man. He was a good friend, plus a coach and teacher. He was one of the most influential people in my life" Yet, pitching for Mercyhurst didn't resemble pitching professionally, even in the minor leagues. "At Mercyhurst, I simply threw the ball past people," explains Costello, who consistently throws between 88-90 miles per hour. "When I started play-
Dr. Barry Copeland has joined the Mercyhurst Family as the new head coach of men's basketball. , "After reviewing the credentials of 125 applicants, we feel that we have found the model coach to lead our basketball program," said Dr. William Garvey, college President, at the May 5th news conference where Copeland's appointment was announced. Dr. Copeland begins his Mercyhurst duties after serving as an assistant coach at Syracuse University since 1984. During his tenure at Syracuse, the Orangemen captured the Big East Conference Championship (1986 and 1987) and advanced to the NCAA Division I Final Four last season. A 1977 graduate with a bachelor of science degree in health, physical education and recreation from Central Michigan University, Copeland also earned his master's degree from CMU in 1979. He completed his doctorate in education from Northwestern State University of Louisiana in 1982. Dr. Copeland, 33, served as an assistant coach at CMU, NWSU, and at the University of Wisconsin at Green Bay before joining the Syracuse staff in 1984. He takes over the Laker program, which had been guided by Billy Kalbaugh since the 1981 season. Kalbaugh resigned this past spring after compiling a 102-89 career mark, including last season's 11-17 campaign.

Luke Ruppel, who has guided the Mercyhurst women's basketball program for the past two seasons, has taken over the additional duties of assistant athletic director. Greg Yoko, Mercyhurst Class of 1985, has returned as the Lakers sports information director and publication assistant. Trevor Warren joins the Mercyhurst coaching staff as the head men's soccer coach and head women's softball coach. Joe Jordano, another Erie native, has been assigned the duties of director of athletic marketing, in addition to his present position as head baseball coach. Bob Powell is the Lakers new head golf coach, as well as the men's basketball assistant coach. Norm Lindamood has been named Mercyhurst's new head crew coach. He is the former head coach of women's crew at Marietta. Dr. Barry Copeland, and Rick Gotkin take over the men's basketball and hockey programs, respectively. John Leisering, Mercyhurst Class of '81 begins his second year as Laker athletic director.
The Lady Lakers completed their first 15 game schedule with a respectable 6-7-2 record. The 16 player squad, made up of eight freshmen, claimed the first win in the history of the program against Bethany College (WV) by a count of 4-2. Freshman Jen Hart, an Erie native who graduated from Mercyhurst Prep high school, led the team in scoring with 24 points (nine goals and six assists.) Another Erieite, Sara Marchini '88, served as goalkeeper for the first season. Beginning just its second full intercollegiate season, the Mercyhurst women's soccer team expects to improve their record this years. "Having started the program in the fall of 1986 as a club sport," Coach Roth explains, "and then playing very competitively in 1987 during our first intercollegiate season, we have high expectations for the future. "We've had a tremendous recruiting season. If the team can improve as much this year as it did last year, we will begin to receive some national attention. By 1989 or 1990, we should be challenging for a NCAA championship tournament bid," promises Roth.
In addition to utilizing the Erie Civic Center for hockey, Mercyhurst has begun to reach beyond the boundaries of Parade Boulevard and Briggs Avenue on East 38th Street. The athletic fields at the old Kanty Prep high school at 3002 East 38th Street, are being leased by the college for its baseball and softball teams. However, Laker football and soccer teams have also practiced at the facility. The main campus, which has also undergone some growth changes, now sports three athletic fields which are used extensively by both soccer programs, football, and intramurals. And the Campus Center has not escaped improvement. The most noticeable alteration is the new floor surface. The original hard rubber floor has been replaced with a modern all wood floor that has reduced the number of leg injuries dramatically. For those alums who have not visited the Campus Center since 1984, a number of other cosmetic and necessary changes have taken place. Indoor rowing tanks for crew, a nautilus weight center and offices have been added to the north side of the facility. The sportsmedicine and athletic training programs facilities have been expanded. An extension to the east side of the Campus Center provides room for program expansion, while at the same time providing two more locker rooms and some needed storage areas. Finally, the most recent cosmetic alteration occurred this past spring when a lobby and reception area were constructed at the main entrance to the Campus Center. Off-campus, the Mercyhurst College boathouse has undergone extensive renovations. The boathouse is now double the size of the original structure built in 1972. ( H SI
Men's ice hockey
Another program which performed as a club team for a season before jumping to varsity status was men's hockey. Dr. Robert Cisek, chairman of the college's business department, headed the club program and served as an assistant coach last year. He will assist again in 1988. "We started hockey as a club program," explained Ibm Billingsley, director of administration at the college, "but the interest at Mercyhurst and in the community was so high that we decided to institute it as a varsity sport immediately after the first year." The Lakers finished their inaugural varsity slate with a stellar 16-7 record, including victories over Navy, Syracuse, Rutgers, and Duquesne. Freshman Sean Hennessey of Hamburg, NY paced the Mercyhurst scoring attack. He compiled a team leading 35 points, including 35 goals. This season, the Lakers will be led by head coach Rick Gotkin, a former assistant coach at Rochester Polytech Institute, and graduate of SUNY-Brockport. Mercyhurst utilizes the 5,000 seat Erie Civic Center for the majority of the home schedule while also using the Glenwood Arena.
In order to better meet the needs of the increased student body, the college has expanded its athletic facilities and program offerings. Two of the most dramatic changes have been the addition of two new varsity sports, women's soccer and men's ice hockey. In addition, the Campus Center and athletic fields have been improved and remodeled and the college has acquired the use of the athletic fields at the former Kanty Prep school site on East 38th Street.
(The following article was sent to President Garvey from Keith S. Sheldon, managing editor of the Evening Observer, Dunkirk, NY) Words of praise: Like many area residents, we have watched a variety of athletic teams (high school and college) for a number of years both on and off the field. One certainly stands out in the area of deportment. The Mercyhurst College baseball team of Erie, Pennsylvania, recently played a doubleheader at Fredonia State University. Afterward, they ate at Wendy's in Fredonia. Without a doubt, they were the bestbehaved group of young men (and women) we have seen in a long time. Their coaches should share in the credit. Greg Yoko is the director of sports information at Mercyhurst College as well as publication assistant 17
The 1987 season was the first intercollegiate campaign for the Mercyhurst women's soccer program. After a year (1986-87) as a club sport, the Lady Lakers began varisty action last year. "The growth of women's high school and college soccer warranted Mercyhurst's attention," explains President William Garvey, "We were looking to add another women's sport and there was plenty of student interest in soccer. It was a natural extension for the college athletic department." Andy Roth, Mercyhurst's director of admissions, has guided the Laker women's program for the last two years. He is leading the troops again in 1988.
Liebel Named Of The Year Alumni
"I have received many honors but none that means more to me than being choosen Mercyhurst's distinguished alumna. This is where I was given my start as a woman professional," Liebel said. "I have always thought of Mercyhurst as the majestic overseer of our city — a place where the untiring sacrifice of the past and the excellent service of today combine to meet Erie's needs and to produce Erie's future," she explained. "Mercyhurst continues to provide a rich philosophy of education based on quality professionals, advanced technology, and deep moral values . . . and it is for these reasons, especially, that I continue my loyalty and love for the institution, and my sense of pride in being one of her graduates."
