Ricardo Rizo (Guadalajara, Mexico) who brings a wealth of international experience from the junior ranks. He will play high in the lineup his first year and play a key role in the team's doubles fortunes . Rounding out the newcomers are Stephen Taylor (Dublin , Ireland), Ted Burghardt (Denver, CO) and Andrew Kazarian (Fresno, CA). One of the team's strengths will be its doubles play where Rodriguez & Maldonado were ranked No . 29 in the !TA pre-season polls . Other players expected to see the majority of doubles action include Tangefjord, Cooper, Taylor, Rizo, and Burgardht. After opening the season January 30th against Pacific , the Toreros will be tested in February with the likes of UCLA, USC and Fresno State . The Toreros will play eight home dual matches in March, as well as participate in the UC Santa Bar– bara Invitational. April sees the Toreros with just one road match at San Diego State before they host the WCC Championships (April 23-25). If the Toreros stay healthy, hopefully their schedule will take them into mid-May and the NCAA Regionals.

doubles. Like Rodriguez, Maldonado will supply the youthful Toreros with both leadership and experience. Last sea son he combined for an 11-10 singles mark playing between the No. 2-4 spots. Also back from last year's squad that gives Coach Hagedorn a good core ofretuming players with ex– perience include sophomores Mattias Tangefjord (Gothenburg, Sweden), Sean Cooper (Dublin , Ireland) , Ross Bourne (Tulsa, Oklahoma) and Bernie Carrillo (Mexico City, Mexico).

Head coach Tom Hagedorn , entering his third season at the helm of the USO men 's tennis program, re– turns six letterwinners from last year 's squad that finished 11-9 overall and second in the West Coast Conference. It marked the second straight season that Hagedorn directed the Toreros to a winning season and second place fin– ish at the WCC Championships. On paper the 1998-99 Torero squad should be his best yet as they gun for national recognition and a trip to the NCAA Regionals in May. Al– though a youthful group -- only two upperclassmen -- the Toreros will be deep with ten solid players and no drop off after the No. six player. Leading the way this season will be senior Rudy Rodriguez (Guadalajara, Mexico) who will be the team's No. I singles player, and team with junior German Maldonado (Mexico City, Mexico) at No . I doubles. Last season Rodriguez was named to the All-West Coast Confer– ence Singles and Doubles teams , along with being named to the WCC All– Academic Team . Rodriguez finished 12-8 at No. I singles and teamed with Maldonado to finish I 2-7 at No. I

roles in both singles and doubles -– Mattias played between No. 2-3 singles and finished 8-10 overall (7-3 at #3), and teamed with Cooper at No. 2 doubles; Sean was a solid 8-4 at No. 4 singles ( 11-9 overall) ; Ross and Bernie split time at No . 6 singles, com– bining to go I 0-9; and Ross teamed with J.P. La Barrie for a 9-9 mark at No. 3 doubles. With the aforementioned group, along with a very good fresh– man class, the Toreros should be com– petitive with every team they play. The freshman class will be headed by


SETTING The University of San Diego is an independent Cathol ic institution of higher education. Founded in 1949, USO is located on 180 acres over– look ing Miss ion Bay, San Diego Harbor and the Pacific Ocean. The campus is named Alca la Park and is located just 10 minutes from down– town San Diego and the world famous San Diego Zoo. Hi storic Old Town is just minutes away as we ll. The ci ty of San Diego along with thi s campus traces their origins to fifteenth century Spain. The campus was named after a Spanish vill age near Madrid - Alcala de Henares. Founded by the Greeks as Complutum, the vill age was later renamed Al Kala (the Castle) by the Moslems. Chris– tians recaptured the vill age centuri es later and founded a uni vers ity, th e Uni versity of Alcala, whose buildings became the inspiration for USD's style. Both institutions are located on a hill overlooking a ri ver va ll ey.


The USO campus is regarded as one of the most archi tectura lly unique insti tuti ons in the country, featuring 18 major buildings designed in an ornamental 16th century Spanish Renaissance style. The physica l beauty of the campus reaches beyond the "eye of the beholder." Reverend Mother Rosa li e Hill, one of the institutions fo unders, believed in the enhancement of learning through bea uty and harmony. Hence for the Uni versity, beauty is a transcendental quality imparted to students as part of their education to truth and goodness: a simpl e but profound educationa l philosophy. Since 1984, USO has completed nine major construction and expansion proj ects. A landscaped fountain plaza was fini shed in the fall of 1995, connecting the entrances of the lmmacul ata and Hughes Administration Center. In 1992, the uni versity completed the 45 ,000 square foot Loma Hall , which includes an expanded bookstore, a larger mail center, classrooms and labratories. In 1990, th e renovated Katherine M. and George M. Pardee Jr. Lega l Research Center opened, a fac ility that offers the latest in in fo rmation technology. ACADEMICS

USO enroll s more than 6,600 students who have a choice of more than 50 undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The uni versity's academic units in– clude the Co llege of Arts and Sciences, and the Schools of Business Administration, Education, Law and Nursing. Class size generall y averages between 18-25 students with the student to teac her ratio being 18: I. Over 97 percent of US D's fu ll-time fac ulty hold doctorates. In the annual ratings of the country's colleges and uni versities, published by U.S. News & World Reporr, USO moved from the regional to national category in 1994. The uni versity is ranked among the top I00 schoo ls in the nat ion. STUDENT LIFE Student act iviti es include cultura l events, dances, boat crui ses, beach parti es, BBQ's, concerts, comedy ni ghts, symposia and much more. Students partici pate in a wide range of vo lunteer projects such as ad ul t literacy tutoring, sen ior citi zen

outreach, and house building in Tijuana. The intramura l program is also an integral part of student life on camp us with over two– thirds of the USO community part aki ng in intramura l sports. ATHLETICS

JENNY CRAIG PAVILION • With a donation of $7 million by Sid and Jenny Craig, USD received the lead gift nec– essary to proceed with planning its much needed $17 million Sports/Activities Center. The pavilion, which will be located at the east– ern end of campus between Torero Stadium and Cunningham Baseball Stadium, will in– clude a 5,000-seat gymnasium, coaches of– fices, fitness center and athletic training fa– cilities, showers and locker rooms, conces– sion stand, and reception room. The Monsi– gnor J.B. Eagen Plaza off the Pavilion entry, will take advantage of the view across cam– pus to the ocean. The USD Athletic Hall of Fame will also be housed in the facility. Con– struction of the pavilion should be completed for the 2000-2001 academic year.

USO is a member of the West Coast Conference fo r nearl y all sports and com– petes in sixteen intercoll egiate sports on the NCAA Di vis ion I level.

Zuzana Lesenarova, a two-time NCAA All-Ameri can for women's tenn is, already has won the first two legs of the Co llegiate Grand Slam thi s fa ll ( 1998) with wins at the National Clay Courts and Riviera All-American. She enters the 1999 spring season ranked No. I in the nat ion . Susie Erpelding, a junior on the women's basketball team, was named to the First Team GTE Academic All-Ameri ca Team.




Tom Hagedorn enters his third season as head coach of the Univer– sity of San Diego men 's tenni s program. Last year he guided the Toreros to an 11-9 record and second place finish in the West Coast Conference, marking the second straight winning campaign for Torero tennis.
