    I want to thank everyone for coming this evening for this announcement and especially Mrs. Harwell. I know she has been to a lot of stadiums in her career but hopefully she will come back when we have this project completed. You always have to feel welcome when your name is on the front of the buildingand that is what we will do.

    I also want to thank the members of the foundation (Harwell) who are here tonight -- Dave Winn, Tom Payne and Vikki Fisher who are representing the Harwell Foundation. Its very nice of each of you to come out and we appreciate your support.

    I also want to thank my friend, Gary Spicer. Gary and I started on this concept about three years ago and, believe it not, that was three presidents ago at Wayne State. Years earlier President Reid had sent me over a note saying there had been a contribution to the university and that there was an opportunity to acknowledge the gift. And that is how it started. I sent a note to Gary (Spicer) and at the bottom I penned a message that I had an idea I wanted to talk about and to give me a call if he had any interest. Funny, most of the times when I do something like that, especially with departmental staff, I never hear back. But this was different. Gary returned the call almost immediately. He asked what my idea was and I said I would like to build a baseball stadium to honor the Harwells. Sure enough, a day later he showed up in the office and we have now been working on this initiative for nearly three years.

    Gary (Governor Pollard) said to me, having just come off a presidential search that maybe got announced a little sooner than he would have wanted, how do you keep something like that quiet for three years? The answer -- a committee of two that is the key.

    As Governor OBrien said earlier, we look forward to starting this campaign because we really think it is a testament to one of Detroits most endearing couples. And 40, 50 or even 60 years from now when there may not be too many people, who heard directly the broadcasts of Ernie Harwell, every time they walk into this stadium, they will hear about him.

    You know there is something interesting about the year 1918 in American history. It had great significance, and in many ways, was a watershed year. World War I endedand it should be noted that I did not actually see that happen. It was also the last year that the Red Sox won a world series in that century. Later that year they traded away a pitcher by the name of George Ruth to the Yankees so the owner would have enough

    money to support one of his Broadway plays. Talk about drama.

    Ultimately, it turned out to be good theatre in the Bronx.

    There were also two somewhat inconspicuous events that happened in 1918 that now seem so coincidentally linked that I think is serendipitous and should be mentioned. On January 19th of that year, Detroit City College played its first athletic event. Of course we know it today as Wayne State. And six days later in Washington, Georgia a young boy was christened, William Ernest Harwell.

    He had a great career, 52 years as a broadcaster. Some of his professional broadcast jobs included NFL football, the Masters and a memorable first employment with the Brooklyn Dodgers. He worked with the New York Giants, the Baltimore Orioles and then for 42 years the Detroit Tigers. Most of the latter took place not too far from here, right down Trumbull where it intersects with Michigan Avenue. Around here they affectionately referred to it simply as the corner, and what is so contradictory about that reference is that everything about the Harwells was just the opposite of being regulated to a corner. They never put you in that position. They were caring, they were compassionate and they were certainly very giving. Their family and friends knew that. And so did a countless number of individuals who benefited from their kindness for which the Harwells expected nothing in return.

    Ernie Harwell had some great signature lines. That home run call with the emphasis on the long gone. The batter who stood there like a house by the side of the road when he struck out and my favorite, when that foul ball that fell into the waiting hands of a Tiger fan from a recognized locality. Even that errant popup was a part of Michigan. He described how that foul ball was caught by a certain individual and then he would attribute any number of Michigan villages or towns to the recipient - Alpena, Escanaba, Allen Park or Hamtramck. If you listened to the game, you actually thought to yourself that he knew who caught the ball, and because everyone knew Ernie Harwell, it wasnt that far from believable. That little attribute summed up a larger connection he (and Lulu) made with each of us. He made a connection to our youth, when things were a little bit more innocent. He made a connection to families at that afternoon barbeque when the ball game would be in the background. And he made that connection between fathers and mothers with sons and daughters when we talked about baseball and things in life beyond a game.

    You know to broadcast all those years you have to have a pretty good partner -- and Ernie Harwell did. He had some great partners in the broadcast booth Ray Lane, Paul Carey, George Kell. But of all the partners he had, he only had one perfect match that was Lulu.

    It was said that Ernie Harwell had the Ear of Michigan but Lulu; wellshe had his heart. Thats why this stadium is so important to us. Thats why this tribute is so important to all of us.

    The following are Rob Fourniers remarks during the Harwell Field Announcement on June 6, 2013.



    The Wayne State University swimming and diving teams again competed as one of the elite programs in Division II, as both the mens and womens squads finished in the top five at the 2013 NCAA Swimming & Diving National Championships, held in Birmingham, Ala. from March 6-9.

    The WSU womens team placed second, finishing as one of the top two teams for the fifth straight

In terms of relays, two of the mens quartets earned First Team All-America honors, with the other three relays garnering Honorable Mention All-America honors.

    Warrior mens and womens swimming & diving programs celebrate at the GLIAC Championships.

    The WSU mens swimming & diving program has won the GLIAC Championship eight of the last 11 years and finished second the other three seasons.

    The men have finished in the top eight at the NCAA Championships the past nine seasons.

    The womens program has won the GLIAC Championship seven of the past eight seasons and finished first or second at the NCAA Championships the past five seasons.




    The womens basketball program had a banner year in 2012-13. The Warriors finished 22-9, which was the most wins since the 1980-81 Tartar team, and the second-most in school history.

    Head Coach Carrie Lohr led the Warriors to a 17-5 conference mark including a share of the GLIAC North Division regular-season title. It was the first GLIAC title for the WSU womens basketball program since the 1980-81 season. The 2012-13 GLIAC and BCAM (Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan) Womens College Coach of the Year, Lohr guided WSU to its first NCAA tournament victory as well as the schools inaugural appearance in the NCAA Regional Championship game (Sweet Sixteen). The magical run through the NCAA playoffs came to an end on

    March 18 for the upstart womens basketball team as a late rally by the eventual national champions, Ashland University (34-1), propelled the host Eagles to a 72-63 win over the Warriors.

    The season started auspiciously for WSU as senior Amelia Davis, who had played over 1,700 minutes in her WSU career, suffered a season-ending injury just two days prior to the regular-season opener. After dropping their first two regular-season contests, the Warriors rattled off four wins in their first five league games with the only setback coming vs. Ashland. Wayne State won the inaugural Waste Management/WSU Holiday Classic with seniors Talisha Bridges, Paige Sickmiller and Deanna Crumpton earning spots on the all-tournament team with Bridges being voted MVP.

    A few days before the resumption of league play, Sickmiller suffered a season-ending injury forcing coach Lohr and her staff to adjust the rotation yet again. WSU won three of its first five games in January, then put together a nine-game winning streak before dropping a pair of contests by a total of four points. A road win at Lake Superior clinched the North Division co-championship and was followed by a home court playoff win over Ferris State. Despite falling in the GLIAC semifinals, the Warriors received an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament for only the second time in school history.

    Wayne State defeated Findlay (63-58) and Wisconsin-Parkside (70-60) before the 72-63 loss at Ashland in front of a crowd of over 2,800. Seniors Juanita Cochran, Phaebre Colbert and Talisha Bridges were all recognized as All-GLIAC performers. Bridges, who transferred to WSU in January 2012, earned both All-GLIAC First Team and GLIAC All-Defensive Team accolades. She became WSUs first All-GLIAC First Team honoree since Jasmine McCall during the 2007-08 campaign. Colbert and Cochran were voted to the All-GLIAC Second Team.

    Bridges and Cochran shared the squads Most Valuable Player Award. Bridges scored in double figures in 26 of her 31 games played and was voted to the Daktronics All-Midwest Region Second Team. She also earned a spot on the NCAA Midwest Regional All-Tournament team. Her 481 points is the ninth-most in school history, while her 183 field goals made is 12th-best all-time. In addition, Bridges made 110 free throws which is tied-for-fifth highest mark, while her 215 rebounds is tied-for-24th. She also ranks tied-for-18th in a single-season with 19 blocked shots and 17th in minutes played with 900. Bridges led the squad in points, steals and assists.

    Cochran scored in double figures 18 times in earning both GLIAC All-Tournament team and NCAA Midwest Regional All-Tournament team honors. Cochran shot over 51 percent from the field in averaging 11.8 points per game. She also led the GLIAC in offensive rebounds in league play and finished the campaign averaging 9.8 rebounds per contest. Cochran totaled 44 blocked shots on the season and completed her two-year Warrior career second in both blocked shots (80) and blocked shots average (1.5), and third in field goal percentage (.528 - min. 80 made).

    Junior Imari Redfield was named as the squads Most Improved Player. After averaging 2.0 points per game in 2011-12, her first year with the Green and Gold, Redfield tallied 127 points as a junior improving her on the court performance in nearly every category while shooting a higher percentage in field goals, three-

    pointers and free throws. Sickmiller earned the teams Warrior Award, which is given to the person on the team that represents the WSU Warrior name with great pride, on and off the court. Freshman guard Kristen Long was bestowed the Teammate Award.

    Earning GLIAC All-Academic Excellence accolades were Talisha Bridges, Juanita Cochran, Amelia Davis and Paige Sickmiller for a cumulative grade-point average above a 3.5. Selected to the GLIAC All-Academic Team (for a cumulative GPA between a 3.0-3.49) were Kayla Bridges, Phaebre Colbert, Imari Redfield, Chloe Srebernak and Lena Thomas. Freshmen and first-year transfers were not eligible for conference all-academic accolades.

    The Warrior mens basketball program had another successful season in 2012-13 claiming a share of the GLIAC regular-season title and advancing to the NCAA tournament for the second time in three seasons.

    After opening the year with a setback at fourth-ranked Bellarmine, WSU won five consecutive games including a one-point triumph over Lewis University. Wayne State dropped a 82-78 contest to eventual national champion Drury at the Matthaei in mid-December but responded with seven straight victories over the next month including a thrilling four-point overtime win over Findlay in Detroit.

    Following a double-overtime loss at Ferris State, the Warriors went 2-3 in their next five contests which included an overtime loss at home to Michigan Tech. Three straight victories concluded with an 18-point triumph at Grand Valley. Despite losses in the final two regular-season contests, Wayne State finished in a three-way tie for the GLIAC regular-season title with a 16-6 conference mark.

    Even though, WSU loss a two-point decision at home in the opening round of the GLIAC tournament, the Warriors strong regular season and strength of schedule earned the squad a berth in the NCAA tournament.

    Head coach David Greer along with four of his student-athletes were recognized at the 2012-13 GLIAC Awards banquet held in conjunction with the league championship tournament.

    Greer, who completed his 12th season as the Wayne State bench boss, earned his first GLIAC Coach of the Year award after leading his Warriors to a share of the GLIAC regular-season title, the first for the WSU program since the 1998-99 campaign. The 16 league wins was the most since the 1998-99 Tartar squad also won 16 conference contests. With only two seniors on the squad, Greers team finished second in the league in both scoring and fewest turnovers, while ranking fourth in field goal percentage, steals, and opponent field goal percentage. Earlier this season he became WSUs all-time leader in GLIAC victories and is two

    wins shy of second-place Hall of Fame coach Joel Mason in overall wins. This was WSUs third straight year with at least 14 league wins.

    Senior forward Ian Larkin was voted to the All-GLIAC First Team after earning Second Team All-League honors a year ago. He ranked in the top 10 in the conference in three-point field goal percentage (4th, 46.7 percent), seventh in field goals (129-of-241), total rebounds (144) and rebounds per game (6.5), and 10th in blocked shots (23), points (346) and points per 40 minutes (20.0). Larkin ranked 11th in both field goal percentage (53.5) and points per game (15.7).

    Junior guard Mike Hollingsworth was tabbed for the ALL-GLIAC First Team. Last year he suffered an injury in WSUs second conference game and was redshirted a year after being voted to the All-GLIAC South Division First Team (2010-11). He missed four full games this past season due to injury but still ranked 15th in the conference in points per game (14.6) and was 13th in points per 40 minutes (19.0). Hollingsworth was also among the GLIAC leaders in minutes per game (30.7), field goals (96-of-191), field goal percentage (50.3/15th), assist to turnover ratio (1.5) and total points (262).

    Senior guard Cole Prophet was selected to the All-GLIAC Second Team as well as the All-GLIAC Defensive squad. He ranked second in the league with 93 assists, fifth in assist to turnover ratio (2.6), seventh in steals (36), while playing 36.2 minutes per contest, which ranked third. Prophet was among the GLIAC leaders in points (252) and points per game (11.5) along with three-pointers (26-of-78).

    Junior guard Chene Phillips was named to the All-GLIAC Defensive team. He finished sixth in the league with 37 steals, while ranking seventh in assists with 74. Phillips was normally assigned defensively to the opposing squads top scorer and helped WSU finish fourth in opponents field goal percentage (42.0), fifht in both points per game allowed (64.2) and opponents three-point percentage (33.6) and fourth in steals (7.4 per game).

    Larkin was selected to the NABC (National Association of Basketball Coaches) All-Midwest Region Second Team. He led the Warriors in points (371), field goals made (140) and attempted (277), three-point field goal percentage (.425), rebounds (168), rebound average (6.2), defensive rebounds (119) and blocked shots (35). Larkin is only the third player in 95 years of WSU basketball to record over 1,000 career points, 500 rebounds and 100 blocked shots finishing with 1,022 points, 550 rebounds and 115 blocked shots.

    At the team banquet, Prophet received the teams Most Valuable Player Award as well as the teams Leading Assist Award. Coleman was selected as the squads Most Improved Player after playing in 26 of 27 contests during the year and averaging 8.1 points per game. Larkin earned the teams Leading Rebounder Award after grabbing 168 boards and was also given the Coaches Award which goes to the student-athlete that excels in sports and academics. Hollingsworth received the squads Leading Scorer Award, while the squads Best Defender Award went to Phillips. Junior forward Gerald Williams-Taylor was the recipient of the Sportsmanship Award, which is given to the hardest worker and the best attitude on the team.

    In mid-June, Larkin was voted as the 2012-13 WSU Male Student-Athlete of the Year. A business/management major, Larkin was named to the Athletic Directors Honor Roll (term gpa 3.5+) six times with one 4.00 term, while also being named to the Coachs Honor Roll (term gpa 3.0-3.49) the other two semesters.

    Coach Carrie Lohr completed her second season with WSU in 2012-13

    Coach David Greer has 184 wins in his 13 seasons with WSU

    For only the second time in GLIAC history, both the mens and womens Coach of the Year recipients were from the same school.




    The Wayne State University Department of Athletics in conjunction with the Ernie Harwell Estate and the Ernie Harwell Foundation announced today the establishment of the Harwell Field Project.

    This project is an outreach effort to build a baseball stadium in recognition of Ernie and Lula Lulu Harwell. As a tribute to that long partnership between the famed Tiger broadcaster and his wife Lula Lulu, the campaign is to name the field in their shared honor. They were married for 62 years and this endeavor is as much an acknowledgment of his legendary career as it is her work behind the scenes to build a marriage for which all of Michigan benefited.

    It is exciting to finally unveil this project and have Mrs. Harwell here for this announcement, stated WSU Director of Athletics Rob Fournier. Gary Spicer (longtime friend and lawyer for Mr. Harwell) and I have worked on this initiative for the better part of three years and to now get us to this stage is one more giant step in realizing our dream of a stadium in Detroit named for the Harwells that celebrates their legacy, their contribution to Michigan and is a tribute to a marriage that truly embodied the best that we can all applaud.

    This lasting testimonial will benefit not only the last college baseball team still active in Detroit but also a resource for countless youth leagues and high schools that use the facility throughout the year. Mr. Harwells support of youth baseball was part of his lasting belief in how baseball could enrich communities and change lives. The legacy that the Harwells represent to Detroit will be maintained in perpetuity in this stadium.

    Baseballs most enduring announcer as authenticated by the Guinness Book of Records, Ernie Harwell retired in 2002 after 55 years in the big leagues and broadcasting

    more games than any other announcer. Ernie was the first active broadcaster to be inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooperstown. Since then, Ernie entered nine more Halls of Fame including the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame, the American Sportscasters Hall of Fame and The National Radio Hall of Fame. In 1960, Ernie became the voice of the Tigers where he called the action on the radio and/or TV for 42 years.

    Ernie Harwell positively influenced tens of thousands of lives by working with Blue Cross Blue Shield to promote physical fitness, walking and health. He loved people, and never quit in his efforts to inspire individuals to stay fit and active.

    Harwell Field will provide grandstands, press box, team clubhouse and a foyer to recognize the achievements and contributions of the Harwells.

    The current field has many historical baseball remnants significant to Mr. Harwell, including a replica Fenway Park outfield wall, the old Tiger stadium scoreboard and the new stadium will be located adjacent to Brooklyn Street which also happened to be one of his early professional broadcasting stops with the Brooklyn Dodgers. The project will have the amenities of today with a nostalgic acknowledgment of the past in a stadium that will mirror the facade of Ebbets Field.

    The initiative will be managed through the Universitys development unit and is endorsed by the Ernie Harwell Estate and the Ernie Harwell Foundation. All contributions to Harwell Field will be used exclusively for this project which honors one of the Detroits most respected couples as well as the broadcaster who brought so much of the vibrancy and spirit of the City to countless Michiganders over an illustrious career.

    A major mission of the University is to achieve an

    increasing level of excellence in the quality of its programs and to enhance the visibility and recognition of the University as a whole. Additionally, the Department of Athletics takes an active role in providing resources for student-athletes, the surrounding community and thousands of youth who love the game.

    The Wayne State University mens golf team completed another successful season under head coach Mike Horn.The Warriors appeared in the NCAA Tournament for the seventh consecutive season and ninth in the last 10 years. WSU tied for 11th at the event held at The Club at Strawberry Creek in Kenosha, Wis.

    WSU won four events in 2012-13 beginning with the Tiffin Invitational on Sept. 15-16 at Mohawk Golf Course in Tiffin, Ohio. The Warriors next victory was the GLIAC Fall Event held at HawksHead Golf Course in South Haven, Mich. on Sept. 23-24. WSU won the first Midwest Regional on Sept. 30-Oct. 1 at Brighton Dale Links in Kansasville, Wis. and finished the regular season with a win at the GLIAC Spring Invitational on April 20-21 at Winding Hollow Golf Course in New Albany, Ohio. Wayne State collected two second-place finishes during the season including at Northern Michigans Greywalls Golf Course on Sept. 8-9 and the Motor City Invitational on Oct. 22-23 at the Detroit Golf Course.

    The mens golf program swept all three major GLIAC postseason awards and put four student-athletes on the All-GLIAC teams. Head coach Mike Horn collected his fourth GLIAC Coach of the Year honor. He was the 2007 GCAA Division II Great Lakes Region Coach of the Year, and recently concluded his 12th season as the WSU golf coach. Horn guided the 2010-11 squad to a second-place finish at the GLIAC Championship and seventh-place in the NCAA Super Regional.

    Eric Johnson was selected as the GLIAC Golfer of the Year and was a First Team All-GLIAC selection. Tyler LaSerra was named GLIAC Mens Golf Freshman of the Year and First Team All-GLIAC. Alex LaSerra and Robert Favaro were both named to the All-GLIAC Honorable Mention squad.

    The Warrior softball team suffered injuries to three key players but still managed to win its second consecutive GLIAC Tournament and advance to the NCAA tournament for the seventh time in eight seasons.

    The youthful Warriors showed early signs of being a prominent program again in 2013 knocking off both Michigan State and Toledo during the fall. Center fielder Shannon Hilton was lost to an injury in mid-February, and clean-up hitter and top pitcher Lyndsay Butler played in the first six games before being sidelined. In addition, left fielder Shelby Spano suffered a season-ending injury on the spring break trip.

    Despite the starting the season 2-4 then having nine consecutive games canceled due to weather, WSU compiled a 6-6 record at the Rebel Spring Games event during spring break.

    After having its first four North games postponed, WSU split a pair of home twinbills before recording doubleheader sweeps at Lake Erie and Hillsdale.

    WSU entered Sundays championship round needing to defeat regular-season champion Grand Valley twice. Sophomore hurler Briana Lee became the first pitcher to toss 14 scoreless innings vs. the Lakers in the same day in at least 23 years as the Warriors recorded victories of 1-0 and 5-0 to earn an automatic berth into the NCAA tournament. WSU scored just one run each in its two NCAA contests.

    Nikki Fulton and Logan White each were voted to the All-GLIAC Second Team. Meanwhile, Stephanie Foreman and Mackenzie Boehler were named Honorable Mention All-GLIAC.

    Wayne State University womens tennis head coach Sheila Snyder concluded her 24th season at the helm with another postseason berth as WSU was selected as the No. 4 seed in the NCAA Midwest Regional tournament. The Warriors have received an invitation for postseason play in seven of the past nine seasons.

    Wayne State finished the regular season with a 19-6 overall record and finished second in the GLIAC regular season standings at 13-1.

    Three GLIAC teams qualified for the five-team NCAA Midwest Regional field with Grand Valley earning the No. 3 seed and Northwood nabbing the second seed.

    WSU sophomore Yahsha Moore and freshman Julia Kamenko were each named to the 2012 All-GLIAC Womens Tennis Team by the leagues coaches.

    In the final release of the season the ITA (Intercollegiate Tennis Association) ranked the Warrior womens squad fifth in the Midwest Region. Drury, the top seed in the region, and Northwood, the second-ranked team, both advanced to the NCAA round of 16. Northwood fell to eventual national champion Armstrong Atlantic while Drury was upended by West Florida. Grand Valley was third in the Midwest and Lewis was fourth rounding out the teams above WSU.

    Individually, Moore was 11th in singles and teamed with Anne Li Briand for a No. 3 ranking in doubles. Kamenko was ranked 18th in singles.

    Four members of the team were recognized by the GLIAC for academic success. The pair of Warriors named to the GLIAC All-Academic Excellence Team (cumulative grade-point average of 3.50 +) were senior Tanya Joseph and Li Briand. Senior Jessica Kruczek and Moore also received GLIAC All-Academic team (cumulative grade-point average of 3.00-3.49) recognition.

    On November 16th, the Campbell/ITA Division II Preseason Rankings were announced, revealing the Top 50 teams, Top 50 singles players, and Top 25 doubles teams in NCAA Division II mens and womens tennis.

    Four of WSUs 12 head coaches earned Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Coach of the Year honors during the recently completed 2012-13 academic year, plus mens tennis coach Bryan Morrow was the ITA Midwest Region Coach of the Year for the first time in his career. In addition, Warrior diving coach Kelly LaCroix was selected as Womens Diving Coach of the (National Championship) Meet for the second consecutive year.For only the second time in GLIAC history the mens and

    womens basketball Coach of the Year recipients were from the same school. Mens coach David Greer was voted the 2012-13 GLIAC Coach of the Year by his peers after leading Wayne State to a share of the GLIAC regular-season

    title, the first for the WSU mens basketball program since the 1998-99 season.

    He has led Wayne State to 10 GLIAC Tournament appearances including the 2011 playoff championship. The 2013 squad was his fourth to qualify for the NCAA tournament as the Warriors made back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances in 2004 and 2005, including a Sweet Sixteen appearance in 2004, along with earning an automatic bid by winning the 2011 GLIAC Tournament.

    Greer has a 184-148 overall record with the Warriors and is the fourth-longest tenured head coach in WSU mens basketball history (tied with Hall of Fame coach David Holmes, 1917-1929) having just completed his 12th season as the Warriors bench boss. He trails the legendary Joel Mason (1948-1966) by two wins (186-184) for second place all-time at WSU. Mason led the 1956 Tartar squad to an NCAA tournament win over DePaul before a setback to Kentucky.

    When WSU recorded a 70-59 victory at Michigan Tech on January 17th, Greer became WSUs all-time leader in GLIAC regular-season victories with his 120th surpassing Ron Hammyes (1988-2001) mark of 119. Greers all-time league record stands at 126-97 for a .565 winning percentage which ranks second among all WSU mens basketball coaches trailing only Hall of Famer Charlier Parker, who compiled a .729 winning percentage (70-26) from 1982-88.

    In terms of producing consistent winning squads, the WSU mens basketball program has a 315-227 record in regular-season league play over the last 31 years for a .581 winning percentage.

    Carrie Lohr was named the 12th head coach in the history of the Wayne State University womens basketball program on May 11, 2011.

    In her inaugural season with the Warriors, Lohr led a young squad (only one senior) to 12 victories,

    the most wins by WSU in four years, and the second-most triumphs in the last eight seasons.

    She was voted the 2012-13 GLIAC Coach of the Year by her peers after leading Wayne State to a share of the GLIAC North

    Division regular-season title, the first for the WSU womens basketball program since the 1980-81 season. Lohr also guided the Warriors to their first NCAA tournament victory (63-58 over Findlay) as well as the schools inaugural appearance in the NCAA Regional Championship game (Sweet Sixteen).

    Her 2012-13 squad consisted of three All-GLIAC players (Talisha Bridges on First Team, Juanita Cochran and Phaebre Colbert on Second Team) as well as nine student-athletes who earned a spot on either the GLIAC All-Academic Excellence Team (Talisha Bridges, Cochran, Amelia Davis and Paige Sickmiller) or the GLIAC All-Academic Team (Kayla Bridges, Colbert, Imari Redfield, Chloe Srebernak and Lena Thomas). In addition, Talisha Bridges became WSUs first All-Region selection since the 2003-04 season earning Second Team All-Midwest Region accolades from Daktronics.

    Lohr recorded her 200th collegiate coaching victory on March 16, 2013, with WSUs 70-60 triumph over Wisconsin-Parkside in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. In leading the 2012-13 Warriors to a 22-9 record, Lohr guided WSU to the second-most wins in a season (1980-81 team had a 23-5 mark), while also becoming the first WSU womens basketball coach to record 34 wins in the first two years of being a head coach at WSU (Kim Mayden totaled 32 wins in 1982-83 and 1983-84).

    BCAM (Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan) selected Lohr as the 2012-13 Womens College Coach of the Year.

    Mens and Womens Swimming/Diving Head Coach Sean Peters is arguably one of the most successful coaches in Wayne State history. Having recently completed his 16th season on the pool deck for WSU, he has led the Warriors to arguably their best seasons in school history, winning 15 GLIAC Championships among the two squads and finishing in the top 10 nationally 16 times.

    The 2012-13 mens and womens squads swept the conference titles for the third consecutive year, with the womens team winning the GLIAC title for the fourth straight season. The womens team was the national runner-up, placing in the top two for the fifth straight year at the NCAA Championships. The mens team placed fifth at the national meet marking their eighth straight year in the top seven at the NCAA Championships.

    The 2011-12 mens and womens teams successfully defended their conference titles, and the womens squad went on to earn the first NCAA Championship by any WSU team since 1989.

    Wayne State has won seven GLIAC Womens Championships in the last eight years under Peters watch, while the WSU mens team has earned eight conference titles in the past 11 years.

    For his record of continued success, Peters is a nine-time GLIAC Mens Swimming Coach of the Year (2002, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 09, 11, 13) recipient, while winning the Womens Coach of the Year award four times (2008, 10, 11, 12). He has garnered one or both of the awards every year since 2002.

    Mike Horn, a four-time GLIAC Coach of the Year (2004, 07, 10, 13) and the 2007 GCAA Division II Great Lakes Region Coach of the Year, will enter his 13th season as Wayne State Universitys golf coach in 2013-14. He

    has led the Warriors to the NCAA Super Regional in nine of the last 10 years including seven straight (2007-2013).

    This past year, Horn mentored the GLIAC Player of the Year (Eric Johnson) and the GLIAC Freshman of the Year (Tyler LaSerra). The 2012-13 squad compiled a 139-29-3 record in competition for a .821 winning percentage.

    Horn guided the 2010-11 squad to a second-place finish at the GLIAC Championship and seventh place in the NCAA Super Regional. Eric Johnson went on to represent WSU at the NCAA Championship as an individual.

    Wayne State qualified for the first time in program history as a team for the NCAA Championship in 2009 after winning the Super Regional title. The Warriors finished in a tie for 13th at nationals, while senior Steve Cuzzort - the 2008 GLIAC Champion and 2009 Super Regional medalist - placed in a tie for fifth individually. The squad returned to the NCAA Championship the following season and finished 14th after a runner-up finish at the Super Regional.

    After a hall of fame career as a Wayne State student-athlete, Bryan Morrow returned to WSU in 2008 to take over the mens tennis program. In his five seasons at the helm of the Warriors mens tennis program, Morrow

    has guided WSU to a 65-47 overall record and two NCAA Tournament appearances plus a 32-11 mark in GLIAC play.

    This past school year, the Warriors had a 9-2 GLIAC record to finish in the top three of the league standings for the fourth straight season. WSU had a 13-8 overall record to earn Morrow the ITA Midwest Region Coach of the Year award.

    He has coached 18 All-GLIAC selections in his five seasons. One that stresses academics, coach Morrow has also mentored 30 Academic All-GLIAC honorees in his four years, including three-time selections Thomas Ducret (2011-12-13), Oscar Gamarra (2011-12-13), Jon Groszek (2011-12-13), Marlon Leone (2009-10-11), Will Nolan (2010-11-12) and Eric Szydlowski (2009-10-11).

    In 2011, Gamarra was a Second Team Academic All-District selection and in 2012 Gamarra became the first tennis player, male or female, in school history to earn Academic All-America honors as he was voted to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Mens At-Large Third Team.

    Morrow was named GLIAC Coach of the Year in 2010, after leading the Warriors to the first of two straight NCAA Tournament appearances. Morrow, who was inducted into the WSU Athletic Hall of Fame in 2003, became the ninth mens tennis player voted into the WSU Hall of Fame.

    The Wayne State University Department of Athletics instituted W Day in 2010 in honor of the womens athletics. Over the past four years, W Day has expanded into W week, a celebration of over 1,000 women student-athletes that have competed in intercollegiate athletics for WSU since 1973. This years week long activities began with a brunch on April 13 inside the Multipurpose Indoor Facility which also honored one female per womens sport with the Women Who Made a Difference plaque. Later that afternoon the Warrior softball team played conference rival Grand Valley in a doubleheader televised live throughout the state of Michigan on Xfinity channel 900. Other events included a movie

    night, a bone marrow drive, a wellness Warrior health fair, academic recognition luncheon and the Basic Needs Drive.

    Delivering the keynote address at the W Day brunch was Dr. Paula McGee, a native of Flint, Mich. Always committed to excellence, Dr. McGee is often recognized for her accolades in womens basketball. At the University of Southern California, she and her twin sister, Pam teamed up with Cheryl Miller and Cynthia Cooper to win

    back-to-back National Championships in 1983 and 1984. She has a retired jersey at USC and is a member of their prestigious Hall of Fame.

    Among those receiving Deans Awards (student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade point average in that college) at the annual Academic Recognition Luncheon was cross country and track athlete Samantha Kaufman. She has collected a perfect 4.00 GPA during all eight of her semesters.

    WSU Athletics honored several people at the W Day brunch with Women Who Made A Difference awards. Among the recipients were Rachel Campbell (Womens Cross Country / 1999-03), Jessica King (Womens Basketball / 2000-03), Ann McMaster (Softball / 1979 -1982), Rachel Rogers-Saab (Volleyball / 1986-89), Simona Iacoban (Womens Tennis / 1999-02), Kathryn Hefner (Womens Fencing / 2000-04) and Lindsey ONeill (Womens Swimming & Diving / 2002-06).

    The softball team wore pink socks and hats for its Strike Out Cancer doubleheader against Grand Valley on April 13. The Warriors raised money and awareness for breast cancer and prevention.

    The W Week Community Service initiative, in partnership with Wayne Cares and Covenant House Michigan, was a basic needs drive as the Warriors collected and distributed thousands of toiletry items to benefit the homeless and at-risk citizens of Detroit.

    As part of W Week the WSU Department of Athletics hosted a Health Fair at the Mort Harris Recreation and Fitness Center. Over 20 vendors including Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Hansens Running Shop and University Pharmacy were in attendance. Students, faculty and staff, and MHRFC members were invited to browse the booths. Refreshments and free massages were also available.

    The WSU Department of Athletics hosted the Third Annual Basic Needs Drive in conjunction with W Week. The community engagement aspect of the week is started by setting up various collection sites around campus to collect basic need items (socks, toiletries, wash cloths) from students, faculty and staff. Items are also collected from local hotels and businesses.

    On April 19th, students, staff and community members came together to put all of the collected items into individual bags and distribute them to those in need. This year, over 17,000 items were collected and 700 bags were made. All of the items were distributed to the community at Cass Park, Mariners Inn Detroit and the NSO (Neighborhood Service Organization and Covenant House Michigan).

    Conceived as a way to help fund the top-notch facilities for the student-athletes of today and tomorrow, our supporters can leave their permanent mark on the Warriors new facilities and help the department continue to offer our student-athletes the tools to make them successful in the classroom, on the field, and in the community.

    HITTING STREAKSGenerally we think of hitting streaks as a personal achievement. Joe DiMaggios 56-game hitting streak comes to mind as one of the greatest

    sports feats ever. In the case of the new locker rooms for baseball and softball, we are looking to string our hits together as a team to achieve the success necessary to be the best. For each person that steps up to the plate and delivers a hit by securing a locker in the new facilities, a hit will be

    added to the total goals of 20 games for softball and 40 games for baseball, based upon the number of lockers in each facility.



    The Wayne State University Department of Athletics would like to thank the following donors for their generous support of Warrior Athletics. These gifts help to provide scholarships, upgrade equipment and facilities. Thislistincludesdonationsof$100andmoremadetotheDepartmentofAthleticsbetweenJanuary1,2012andApril30,2013.

    There are numerous financial opportunities to make a difference in the exciting and promising futures of Wayne States student-athletes and athletic programs. Please see the back cover of this magazine for gift-giving clubs associated with supporting athletics. For more information, please call the Athletics Development Office at (313) 577-0587.
