USD Women's Tennis 2004-2005



The University of San Diego is ;m independent Catholic institution of higher education. Founded in 1949, USO is located on 180 acres overlooking Mission Bay, San Diego Harbor and the Pacific Ocean. The campus is named Alcala Park and is located just 10 minutes from downtown San Diego . The campus was named after a Spanish village near Madrid - Alcala de Henares. Founded by the Greeks as Complutum, the village was later renamed Al Kala (the Castle) by the Moslems. Christians recaptured the village centuries later and founded a university whose buildings became the inspiration for USD's architectural style. THE CAMPUS The USD campus is regarded as one of the most architecturally unique institutions in the country, featuring major buildings designed in an ornamental 16th century Spanish Renaissance style. Since 1984, USD has completed nu– merous major construction and expansion projects. In 2000 the Jenny Craig Pavilion, a 5,100-seat athletic center, opened its doors as home to USD volleyball

and basketball. The Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice opened on the west end of campus, and the new Donald P. Shiley Center for Science and Technology opened in fall, 2003. A five-story, Spanish Renaissance parking garage (1,100 spaces) was completed in 1998. A landscaped fountain plaza was finished in the fall of 1995, connecting the entrances of the lmmaculata and Hughes Administration Center. In 1992, the university completed the 45,000 square foot Loma Hall, which includes an expanded bookstore, a larger mail center, classrooms and laboratories.

ACADEMICS USD enrolls more than 7,200 students who have a choice of more than 50 under– graduate and graduate degree programs. The university's academic units include the College ofArts and Sciences, and the Schools of Business Administration, Education, Law and Nursing. Class size generally averages between 18-25 students with the student to teacher ratio being 18: 1. Over 97 percent of USD's full-time faculty hold doctorates. In the annual ratings of the country's colleges and universities, published by U.S. News & World Report, USD moved from the regional to national category in 1994. The university is ranked among the top 100 schools in the nation. STUDENT LIFE Student activities include cultural events, dances, boat cruises, beach parties, BBQ's, concerts, comedy nights, symposia and much more. Students participate in a wide range of volunteer projects such as adult literacy tutoring, senior citizen outreach, and house building in Tijuana. The intramural program is also an integral part of student life on cam– pus with over two-thirds of the USD community partaking in intramural sports.

DID YOU KNOW? The 150,000-square foot Donald P. Shiley Center for Science and Tech– nology opened its doors this past fall, 2003. The new Center contains 73 state– of-the-art laboratory facilities for chemistry, biology, marine science and environmental studies, biochem– istry, physics and related sciences. Additionally, the building includes aquariums, an astronomy deck, an aviary, a greenhouse, and conference areas to accommodate gatherings of science-related groups and organiz– ations.

ATHLETICS The University of San Diego is a member of the West Coast Conference for nearly all sports and competes in 16 intercollegiate sports on the NCAA Division I level. The football team just completed its 11th season in the Pioneer Football League. Women's sports include: basketball, cross country, rowing, soccer, softball, swim– ming, tennis and volleyball.

2005 University of San Diego Toreros Women's Tennis - Nine NCAA Tournament Appearances



Toreros Set Sights On WCC Championships & NCAA Tourney

For a team that has appeared in the NCAA Tournament nine times since 1989, the Univers ity of San Diego women's tennis program has just missed qualify ing for the tour– nament the past few seasons. And the Toreros are sick and tired of being spectators on the sidelines. Receiving a preseason national ranking of No. 5 1, the squad is bound and determined to make the Field of 64 in 2005 . Just one year ago , San Diego ended with a winning record of 11-9 and fini shed No . 42 in the final ITA Poll, but did not receive an invitation to The Big Dance. "We mi ssed getting a bid [into the NCAA Tournament] two years in a row. Two years ago, we were one team out and last year, we were two teams out," commented Torero head coach Sherri Stephens. "My team is just eager to get in . We' re tired of being one or two teams out. "

Entering her 21 st season at Alcala Park, Stephens is very optimistic about her team's chances for postseason success thi s year. Not only does she have a solid core of veterans returning to slug it out on the courts, but Stephens also welcomes two players who could make an impact for her program. Juniors Emma Murphy and Lauren Perl are the leaders of the pack, as their experience and hunger to win have carved them a niche at the top of the singles ladder. Murphy, the 2004 WCC Singles Player of the Year, is the ultimate definition of a counterpuncher, while Perl, an All-WCC Singles Team selection, is an aggressive baseliner who loves to pai nt the lines . Even though Stephens has the services of her two junior aces, she believes the talent of the team extends all the way down the singles ladder. The depth that the Toreros have on display makes this year 's team different from all the other squads Stephens has coached in previous seasons . "I feel strongly that thi s team is different than a lot of teams in that in the past, I' ve had maybe one or two strong players at the top and the and then a pretty big drop between them and the rest of the team," said the long-time San Di– ego coach. "What I like about the team this year is that they are all about the same. They are all top players in their own right, from top to bottom." Getting an invitation into the NCAA Tournament will take more than just stocking up on good players. Stephens is well aware of the fact that having a difficult schedule is imperative, not only in terms of challenging her players, but also in preparing them for the pressures and rigors of the postseason. San Diego will face 13 Top-75 teams this season, highlighted by match-ups with three Top-15 teams: Clemson (No. 7), Washington (No. 9), and USC (No. 12). "My goals, once I came here to the University of San Diego, was to never let down on my scheduling and to always have the toughest competition I could scare up," revealed Stephens. "I know personally, I don 't want to coach against anything but the best. And I know the players, when I recruit them, want to play against the best. I' d li ke to see what we can do against the best teams in the country."

Another reason why Stephens is so upbeat about thi s year's team is because of her team 's approach to competition. She notices that her players are willing to fight for every ball and hang tough in a match, no matter what the score. Stephens points to the addition of redshi rt sophomore Brittany Reitz as one of the main reasons for the team 's never– say-die attitude. A transfer from Purdue University, Reitz has battled injuries throughout her collegi ate career, but appears healthy and ready to provide the necessary spark on the court. "Brittany has basically added [to the team 's toughness]. Emma has the grit and the grind and the fighter attitude ," observed Stephens. "Brittany has given us that edge, that tougher edge that we always kind of needed all the way down." The 2005 edition of the University of San Diego women's tenni s team has all the components to challenge for a NCAA bid : talent, determination and the des ire to be chal– lenged. Stephens is convinced that barring injury, her squad will be battle-tested enough to make a splas h on the nationa l scene come May. "We' re hoping that if everything fa lls the way it should , with injuries and playing our matches and things like that, I fee l the most confident that I' ve fe lt in a long, long time."

4 Now entering her 2 1st season as head coach of the Univers ity of San Diego women 's tenni s team, Sherri Stephens has turned the USD program into one of the best, most respected women's tennis programs in the nation. With Coach Stephens' leadership , the Toreros have gained respect as a national contender. Stephens arrived at USD in the Fall of 1984 and immediately began to re-shape the women 's tennis fortunes. Over the past twenty seasons aga inst some of the nati on's best, Stephens has accumulated a win– loss record of244-2 l 5, fi nishing seventeen seasons with .500 or better marks . During this time her teams have advanced to the NCAA Tournament nine times (1989, 1990, 199 1, 1992, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999). The Toreros have fini shed among the nation's Top-25 in eight seasons, with a high of No. 14 in 1989 ( 18-8 overa ll record)- that was USD's first team to advance to the NCAA's. Stephens has also had five Toreros receive a tota l of twelve NCAA All-America honors: Tonya Fu ller ( 1991 ), Laura Richards ( 1992, 1993), Juli e McKeon ( 1992, 1993, 1994), most recently Zuzana Lesenarova (1997, 1998, 1999, 2000) and j uni or Katarina Valkyova (1999, 2000).


This past season Stephens gu ided the Toreros to an overa ll mark of 11-9, and final national ranking of 53rd. She earned her first West Coast Conference Coach of the Year honor, and along the way talli ed four wins over ranked teams, incl uding No. 26 New Mexico. Two seasons ago she guided USD to a I 0-1 0 overall record and national ranking of 45th. The Toreros won 8 of their fi nal IO matches includi ng wins over ranked teams from No. 25 San Diego State, No. 38 Oregon, No. 40 Yale and No. 57 Loyola Marymount. The Toreros placed second at the 2003 West Coast Conference Championships.

During the 1999-00 season, USD women's tennis team finished with a national ranking of No. 75. That spring, two USD individuals appeared in the NCAA Division I Women's Tennis Tournament held in Malibu, CA. Zuzana Lesenarova advanced to the third round of the singles tournament, eventually los– ing to Stanford's Laura Granville in three sets (6-0, 4-6, 6-3). Katarina Valkyova lost in the first round to Cincinnati 's Kara Molony in three sets (6-0, 3-6, 6-3). The LesenarovaNalkyova duo entered the NCAA doubles tournament ranked No. I in the nation, but had to withdraw due to injury. Both Lesenarova and Valkyova earned NCAA All-America honors in 2000. The 1998-99 squad finished 14-11 overall, advancing to the 2nd round of the NCAA's and finishing with a national ranking of No. 28. Junior Zuzana Lesen– arova won the 1999 NCAA Singles Championship, held her No. I ranking all spring and captured three of the four ITA Grand Slam events. Freshman Katarina Valkyova was a third alternate at the NCAA's and she advanced to the quarters where she was dealt a three-set loss by Lesenarova. The duo teamed up in doubles play to advance to the NCAA semi final round. Lesenarova and Valkyova were named 1999 NCAA All-Americans. Well respected among her peers in

the coaching profession, Sherri has been a featured speaker at several ITA Coaches ' Conven– tions. Twice she has had the privilege of coaching at the Olympic Sports Festival ( 1993/South, 1995/West), with her '95 squad winning the gold medal. She was named the 1994 Female Coach of the Year by the USTA, Southern California Section/San Diego District. Sherri has been involved with numerous administrative positions within collegiate tennis - the NCAA Ranking Committee, the NCAARules Committee, and as Tournament Chainn an of the All-American National Championships the past four years. She also runs summer camps every year.

A native of Phoenix, Arizona, Stephens was a nat iona ll y ranked p laye r on the j unior circuit before enrolling at the Uni versity of Ari zona . After com– pleting her collegiate playing career in 1979, she began her coach– ing caree r as an as– sistant for the Arizona Wildcats.

2005 University of San Diego Toreros Women's Tennis - Nine NCAA Tournament Appearances



The 1996 season was another banner year for USO with the Toreros winning 12 of their final 14 to finish 15-9 overall and ranked #25 in the nation. USO lost to Ca l 1-5 in the first round of the NCAA's with Kris– tine Smith earning USD's point with a 7-6, 6-4 win over #40 Amanda Augustus at No. I. Smith and Yvonne Doyle also were selected to play in the NCAA Doubles Championships. Julie Baird and Kristine Smith were selected 1996 !TA Scholar-Athlete All-Americans. The 1997 season was highlighted by freshman Zuzana Lesenarova's impact on the NCAA tennis scene. With a variety of injuries hitting the Torero squad throughout the season, she guided the team into the second round of the NCAA's and to a fina l record of 16-12. She advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Individual Tournament, finished with a national ranking of 20th, and earned NCAA All-America honors. The 1998 season saw USO finish 12-9 overal l and with a national ranking of No. 3 I. The Toreros advanced to the NCAA's for the eighth time under the leadership of coach Sherri Stephens. Add itiona lly, Zuzana Lesenarova advanced to the semis of the NCAA Individual Champion– ships and garnered her second straight NCAA Al l-America honor. USO capped off a superb season, finishing 14-11 and #28 in the nation -- the season was high lighted by the team's 5-4 victory over then #4-ranked Ca l. USO advanced to the NCAA's for the fifth straight season, and junior Zuzana Lesenarova was crowned the 1999 NCAA National Champion, and won three of the four ITA Grand Slam titles. Sophomore Katarina Valkyova joined Zuzana as a '99 All-America recipient. The 1999-00 USD women's tennis team finished 8- 12 overa ll with a national ranking of 75. Two USO individuals appeared in the NCAA Division I Women's Tennis Tournament held in Malibu, CA. Zuzana Lesenarova advanced to the third round of the singles tournament, even– tually losing to Stanford's Laura Granville in three sets (6-0, 4-6, 6-3). Katarina Valkyova lost in the first round to Cincinnati 's Kara Molony in three sets (6-0, 3-6, 6-3). The Lesenarova/Valkyova duo entered the NCAA doubles tournament ranked No. I in the nation, but had to withdraw due to injury. Both Lesenarova and Valkyova earned NCAAAll-America honors in 2000. The last two seasons have seen the Toreros back in the national spotlight with final rankings of 45th in 2002-03 and 53rd in 2003-04. The future looks bri ght for USO women's tennis. The high caliber of tennis consistently played at US O contributes to the program's identity as a university with superior scholar-athletes. Stephens' players are recruited based on their academic and athletic abilities, she says, and other schools notice when USD athletes are graduating in four years and playing in national competitions. "I get the more well-rounded players who become every bit as good as the nationa lly ranked players because they put everything they have into it," Stephens says. "These young women really work hard. They take full class loads and practice four to five hours a day, not including conditioning and weights. 'They ' re playing the highest level of tennis there is and not sacrificing academics," she adds. "That 's really special." SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION The USO women's tennis program distributes scholarships based on athletic ability. These are given at the discretion ofHead Coach Sherri Stephens. STATEMENT OF NON-DISCRIMINATION The University of San Diego does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, religious belief, age, national origin, ancestory, or handicap in admission to the University, in financial aid programs, in educational programs and policies, and in athletic or other University-administered programs. Inquiries concerning the application of the University's non-discrimination policies may be addressed to USD's Director of Academic Services.

3-time All-American Julie McKeon

The USO women's tennis program is proud of its tradition of excel– lence it achi eves on the tenni s court, as we ll as in the classroom. Since arrivi ng at the Uni versity of San Diego in the fall of 1984, 21st year coach Sherri Stephens and her staff have turned the USO program into one of the best, most respected women's tennis programs in the nation. Over the past twenty seasons aga inst some of the nation 's best, Stephens has accumulated a wi n-l oss record of 244-215, fini shing seven– teen seasons with .500 or better marks. During this time her teams have advanced to the NCAA Tournament nine times ( 1989, 1990, 1991 , 1992, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999), three times reaching the second round ; finished among the nation's top-25 eight times with a high of # 14 in 1989 ( 18-8 overa ll record); placed 2nd in the West Coast Conference Champion– ships sixteen times; and had five Toreros receive a total of twelve NCAA All-America honors. After joining the West Coast Conference in 1986 and posting three straight winning seasons ('86-88), the Toreros made their first NCAA appearance in 1989 behind the play of senior Jennifer Larking, junior Aby Brayton and sophomore Tonya Fuller. USO defeated Tennesse 7-2, before falling to Florida. The Toreros would go on to reach the NCAA's the next three years ( 1990-92) as well , riding the so lid performances of former Toreros like Tonya Fuller ('9 1 NCAA All-America), two-time NCAA Al l-America Laura Richards, three-time NCAA All-America Julie McKeon, Sakol– wan "Tuck" Kacharoen , Kara Brady, Laura Mannisto, Karen Lauer and Paula Hansen . The doubles tandem of McKean-Richards advanced to the semifinals of the I992 NCAA Doubles Championships. USD's '93 and ' 94 squads narrowly missed se lection to the NCAAs, fini shing with records of 11 -9 (#24 !TA) and 14-5 (#21 ITA) respec– tively. Though the Toreros were el iminated from the NCAA Team Tourna– ment (Ma libu, CA) by the University of Indiana in the first round in 1995, a school record five US O players returned to Pepperdine the next week to compete in the individual tournaments. Among them was senior Dina Birch who was the lone Torero to play in the singles championship. Birch, the team's # I player, finished the year with a singl es record of 24-13 and national ranking of #44. At the nationa l championsh ips, Birch fought through a closely contested match before fa ll ing 6-4, 6-4 in the second round to the eventua l champion. The doub les team of Kristine Smith and Yvon ne Doyle prevailed to the round of 16, and fi nished the season 21-5 and ranked # 14.
