    Th e mens and womens cross country teams enter the 2012 season each with a ton of runners returning as IUP looks to be one of the most experienced schools in the PSAC.

    Entering his fourth season, head coach Joey Zins welcomes back 25 total runners - 15 women and 10 men - as he lost just ve student-athletes from a year ago.

    Included on the list of 10 mens runners is junior Victor Costello, who took home all-region honors with a 12th place nish at the NCAA regional championships in Slippery Rock a year ago. Costello was the top IUP runner in 2011, pacing the Crimson Hawks in each of the six events he competed in, including the PSAC championships in Mans eld.

    Costello also racked up four top-25 nishes.

    Sophomore Ray Ofman was another consistent runner for the Crimson Hawks in 2011, notching six team top ve nishes and one top 25 overall nish.

    Other runners coming back are seniors Josh Josen and Matt Rutt; juniors Pete Iannuzzi, Clinton Keller and Al Kreis; and sophomores Jarret Cutsail, Trevor Howard and Tim Lynch.

    For the women, senior Alyssa Taddie and juniors Katie Koenig and Steph Beaudette all return. Koenig paced the Crimson Hawks in four of her six races last year while Taddie posted six team top ve nishes and Beaudette had four.

    Always among the top ve in team nishes, Taddie, Koenig and Beaudette each had one overall top 10 and two overall top 25 nishes in 2011.

    Th ese are just three of IUPs 15 returning runners, which also include seniors Antonnette Acosta, Jane Looby and Katie Peters; juniors Katie Barrett, Jackie Beisel, Kristen Donaldson and Samantha Th ompson; and sophomores Kayla Edwards, Margo Filippi, Alison Gusew, Lauren Lyons and Yelena Share. Six incoming freshmen will add to an already large and talented team.

    Th e bar has been set high for the Crimson Hawks as they head into 2012 as they return 12 starters from last years PSAC semi nal team. Th ird year head coach Gary Agard has a host of young talent as 10 of those 12 returning starters are either sophomores or juniors.

    One of those two seniors is Anouk Sickman, a two-time All-American who is fourth all-time at IUP with 35 career goals. A force from her mid eld position, she had ve multi-goal and ve four-point games last year to lead IUP with 43 points.

    She nished fourth in the powerful PSAC in goals (17), assists (9) and points per game (2.26).

    Senior Erin Shirk moves up to foward this year after earning All-PSAC West recognition at mid- eld a year ago. Fourth on the team in scoring with nine points on one goal and seven assists last year, her numbers will almost certainly go up in 2012.

    Junior Keira Huntsman also moves up to foward this year while junior Brielle Mackey and sophomores Ashley and Paige Mosner also look to help the scoring. Bloomsburg transfer Nicole Bruce adds more talent.

    Junior Jillian Duld, last years third leading scorer, returns at mid eld alongside Sickman. Th e reliable, multi-dimensional threat started all 19 games last season, nishing with six goals and six assists.

    In addition to Duld, there is a host of talent returning in the middle for the Crimson Hawks. Casey McGowan, last years PSAC West Freshman of the Year comes back after starting all 19 games. Shell be joined by juniors Angel Bohn, Dani Edwards and Nicole Grimaldi.

    Moving back to the defensive end, junior Melanie Simmons returns after anchoring IUP with 19 starts a year ago. Kate Bruce, Nicoles sister, also transferred from Bloomsburg and adds depth along with sophomore Paige Klouser.

    Two sophomore starters return in the cage as Sarah Lemieux and Brittany Varacallo alternated starts a year ago. Together they combined for 116 saves and a .690 save percentage. For her e orts, Lemieux garnered All-PSAC honors.

    2012 will mark the second year under head coach Curt Cignetti after a successful debut last season. Cignetti instilled a hard-nosed approach on both sides of the ball that helped IUP to a 7-3 overall record, including a 5-2 mark in the PSAC West.

    15 starters return from that squad, including seven on each side of the ball as the Crimson Hawks will have the leadership, talent and continuity to succeed in 2012.

    Th e strength o ensively will again be the running game, as senior running back Harvie Tuck will be led by six o ensive linemen with extensive starting experience, including junior o ensive tackle Byron Dovales. A two-time All-PSAC West selection, Tuck is fourth all-time at IUP with 2,681 rushing yards. Junior guards Nick Carnicella and Mike Charmo and sophomore Matthew Sasson also return from last years starting o ensive line.

    Senior Pat Smith is one of two experienced quar-terbacks returning for IUP, as the passing game will look to succeed with the help of a deep threat Pat Brewer. Th e deep threat led the Crimson Hawks in all major receiving categories, averaging over 25 yards on his 20 receptions. Juniors Terrill Barnes and Ben Simmen also return as IUP will look to get additional help from Pitt transfer Salath Williams, who will have three years of eligibility remaining.

    Senior Johnny Franco returns to lead a defense that nished last year ranked rst in the PSAC by giving up just 13.6 points per game. Th e ball hawk will again look to make big plays from his safety spot.

    Hell be joined in the defensive back eld by junior Terrell Holloway (formerly Terrell Washington) and sophomore Jerrell McFadden, who racked up 70 tackles a year ago. Up front, junior ends Errol Brewster and Larry Gooden will provide the pass rush while senior Carl Th ornton is proven with 32 career starts and 158 tackles.

    Junior Alexander Berdahl returns at linebacker and hell be helped by another Pitt transfer in junior Carl Fleming.

    Handling the kicking chores for the Crimson Hawks will be sophomore Brett Ullman, who earned all-region honors last year after converting 10-of-11 eld goals and 33-of-34 extra points.

    Th e Crimson Hawks will look to continue their run of success as they go for their ninth straight PSAC tournament appearance in 2012. Under the guidance of veteran head coach Adel Heder, IUP has notched winning seasons 10 of the last 11 years, including nine straight.

    Returning from last years PSAC quarter nal squad are 22 players, including seven starters. Th e 2011 team went an impressive 9-3-2 in conference play to earn the fth seed in the tournament.

    Th e defense will be key for the Crimson Hawks this year as they return goalie Mara Hricik. Th e junior scored shutouts in four of her eight starts, boasting an impressive 0.80 goals against average in 12 total games played. In her over 1000 minutes played she let just nine goals pass and had an .812 save percentage.

    Freshman Ashley Schoellkopf will also look for playing time in goal.

    Junior defenders Kaitlyn Kaminski and Nicole Miller will again work to keep opposing o enses at bay, as they helped IUP holds opponents to just 22 goals all season.

    As the games wore on last year, the IUP defense got better, allowing just eight goals on 86 shots in the second half of games.

    Senior Kelly Faller and junior Alex Tierney will also look to help out on the back end.

    Looking to replace the lost goal scoring from last year will be a trio of junior forwards in Tonya Fabian, Lindsay Lobevero and Kelsey Fisher. Combining for four goals and nine assists a year ago, the o ense will revolve around those three this year as their production will skyrocket.

    Th e leading returning goal scorer, Fisher threaded the net three times last year, with two of those being game-winners. Fabian was second on the team last year with ve assists while Lobevero added a pair of assists and a goal.

    Also looking to contribute o ensively is senior Sharee McCarty and juniors Anna-Kate DePaolo, Michelle Grozinsky and Mandy Cerminara.
