The A. James Clark School of Engineering
is not only one of the finest programs that the
University of Maryland has to offer, but it is also
one of the premiere engineering institutions ranked
nationally and worldwide.
Inside the incredible fourteen-floor
building complex that makes up the A. James Clark
School of Engineering, students and faculty engage
in experimentation. Inside the Neutral Buoyancy
Research Facility, scientists work toward the hopes
of making space research easier and safer. In a
building not too far away, the Glenn L. Martin

vehicles and aircrafts in winds up to 230 miles per
The Clark School is always looking to
expand learning opportunities for its students and
this year it has included the creation of a living-
learning program entitled Women in Engineering,
a 2-year process. This program allows both men
and women to explore the ideas and issues that
will further the pursuit of gender equality in the
Additionally, engineering students at the
University of Maryland are breaking borders in
their areas of study, literally. The Clark School's
Engineers Without Borders chapter won two awards
for their projects devoted to water supply and the
wetlands of Brazil. Students also took second place
in both the undergraduate and graduate divisions of
a National Aeronautics and Space Administration
(NASA) contest in which engineering students had
the chance to present their ideas and innovations
to their peers as well as NASA scientists.
- Graduate programs collectively rank
16th in the nation according to the U.S.
News & World Report's "America's Best

Students who are not familiar
with the College of Agriculture and
Natural Resources (AGNR) may only
recognize it for its ever popular Holy Cow,
which rears its head on Maryland Day, or
the stables located next to the Cambridge
living community. However, students of
AGNR are hard at work, and study more
than the inner organs of a cow or how to
clean out horse stables!
Since the University of Maryland's
establishment as a land grant institution
in 1859, the College of Agriculture and
Natural Resources has been making
breakthroughs in the world of agriculture
which includes the world of environmental
issues and food industries. As agriculture
is the leading industry in the State of
Maryland, 14 percent of the work force
is some how related to agriculture, it is
necessary that our program remain strong
and ever growing.
Students in the College of
Agriculture have resources at their
fingertips such as the National Institutes
of Health and the Food and Drug
Administration. For the students devoted
to studies of the environment, the
Environmental Protection Agency is only
a metro ride away. However, the college
offers a wide range of majors outside the
farm fields. Students may choose to major
in pre-veterinary medicine, food and
nutrition, and agricultural and resource

In the School of Architecture, Planning
and Preservation, students recently used their
creativity and innovation to compete in a U.S.
Department of Energy- sponsored competition
to build a house which conserves and reuses
energy. The University of Maryland team, which
has competed in the event for three consecutive
years, constructed the "LEAFhouse" (Leading
Everyone to an Abundant Future) which converts
solar energy into reusable energy.
Students of the School have endless
resources at their disposal. The architecture
building houses an architecture library, ranked
among the nation's top architectural libraries,
a woodwork and model-making shop, as well
as a Kibel Gallery which serves to showcase
the talents of students or to showcase exhibits
on loan from such prestigious museums as the
Building Museum in Washington, DC.

In addition, students are encouraged
to get involved with the various student
organizations associated with the School of
Architecture. As a HiPO (Historical Preservation
Organization) member, graduate students have
the unique opportunity of attending site visits,
listening to lectures, and socializing with faculty
members and fellow peers.
The SPA (Student Planning Association)
is comprised of students working towards
graduate degrees in the field of Community
Planning. This Organization helps to bridge the
gap between the world of students and the world
of professionals. SPA representatives serve on
the University of Maryland's Graduate Student

With 16 degree-programs, 26 minors, and
six certificate programs to choose from, the College
of Arts and Humanities has a broad range of majors
and classes for all university students. From the
performing arts programs located in the beautiful
Clarice Smith Center for the Performing Arts, to the
Jewish Studies program, from the exploration into
the wonderful world of Shakespeare in the English
department, to the intricate world of human speech
in the Linguistics department, everyone can find
something to suit their interests.
This year the Women's Studies department
welcomes artist-in-residence Rhodessa Jones,
founder of the award winning Medea Project:
Jlteatre for Incarcerated Women to share her
talents as a performing artist, teacher, singer,
actress, director and writer. Students will interact
with Jones through her lectures and performances
where she will discuss the role art can play in
creating personal and social change.
The School of Language, Literature, and
Culture, the second largest unit in the School of
Arts and Humanities, will give students the chance
to learn about, and how to speak languages from
all over the world, from Asia to the Middle East.
In addition, students get the once in a lifetime
opportunity to study abroad in cities such as
Barcelona, Manheim and Tokyo.
No matter your course of study, all
students should take the opportunity to stretch

of a civil society. This program, which encompasses
the ideals of community, scholarship, and leadership,
gives students a chance to better the community in

As Maryland is conveniently located
near Washington, DC, Government and Politics
majors have endless opportunities to participate
in internships and meet and work with people who
directly influence the way our government is run.
Students have the chance to intern on Capitol Hill
in Congressional offices or work with policy makers
on issues such as the environment, labor, or political
communication, all while recei\ing college credit.
While some Maryland Terrapins are interested
in the world of Shakespeare, learning to speak Russian,
or improving the world of mechanical engineering,
other students' interests lie in riding the world of
disease, slowing down the effects of global warming, or
creating new advances in the world of dentistry. These
students should run straight to the College of Chemical
and Life Sciences to check out all that this college has
to offer them. Students who pick a major within this
college spend time in state-of-the-art laboratories and
classrooms including the ones housed in the newly built
Bioscience Research Building.
In addition to the outstanding facilities,
students have the chance to come in contact with leading
scientists and doctors in the world of Chemical and
Life Science. One professor, Dr. David Mosser, recently
founded the Maryland Pathogen Research Institute, an
institute aimed at the study of infectious disease. Or, if
lucky enough, students might get first hand instruction
from Dr. lohn Dinman, who recently de-coded RNA
which will assist in designing drug therapies that may

village boys in the Hmong Village. Many of the villagers had never seen a
camera in their lives. (Below) In fact, these young girls who were on their
way to find husbands. After taking a photo of them, they had seen
what they looked like for the very first time.
In order to reach the Hmong & Kamut Villages, Terps
had to trek nearly 4,000 feet up into the mountains
to reach them. Here are their experiences abroad...

toothpicks depict a water buffalo, an animal that is
sacred to their animist religion.

chickens and turkeys.
(Below) After arriving in the village tired and unsure of how to
begin connecting with the villagers, the ice was broken after we brought
out a ball and began some fun and games.

^r ^^^ .REEK LIFE ^^^ ^^^^ \
^^^N Website: http://greek.iimd.edn ^^!a«««.i^«!^^^ |
j^pi ) WHY GO GREEK? College students go Greek for a number of different reasons: Some do it for the
^^.y^ lifelong friendships, for the leadership opportunities, or to make a huge campus seem just a little smaller.
No matter what the reason, however, Greek life is a huge part of the University of Maryland.
Step 1: Advertise
Talk of rush and advertising for Greek life begins almost
immediately upon returning to school. Sororities typically
advertise by handing out flyers, candy or pens and setting up tents
or chalking the sidewalks.
Step 2: Meet Potential New Members
Many sororities have
"House Parties" or open
house events which allow
girls to come out, tour the
houses and meet the sisters
of prospective sororities.
These parties are informal
but often have cute themes,
decorations and great food.
Sisters get to know their
Step 3: Bids!
At the University of Maryland, chapter maximums are set at 95
members, so fall sororities are allowed to give out as many bids
as they'd like as long as they do not exceed this number. After
meeting the potential new members for the fall and seeing who is
interested in the chapter, each sorority hands out bids!
Step 4: Bid Day
Chapters inform girls whether or not they have received bids
via telephone or by going to their dorms. Then, all of those who
received bids accept them by going to the chapter house and being
wi'lcoiTied by their new sisters on "bid day."
Step 1: Sign Up
Spring rush, also known as formal recruitment, is much more structured
than the fall. Girls register for rush online to begin.
Step 2: Rho Gamma Groups
When rush begins, all of the potential members are broken up into smaller
groups and assigned to a Rho Gamma. RG's are sisters in sororities who
help educate and answer questions about Greek life, while keeping their
affiliations secret to remain unbiased.
Step 3: Meet the Chapters
Once assigned to an RG, the potential new members are taken around
to all 14 of the Pan-Hellenic Association recognized sorority chapters at
UMD. Here, they get a feel for each chapter.
Step 4: Narrow it Down
After meeting all of the chapters, the girls meet with their RG's to rank
their top 10 choices. It is a mutual selection process so the girls will travel
back to however many of their top 10 chapters that invited them back.
From there, the potential new members rank their top 6, then top 3, and
finally they choose their #1.
Step 5: Bid Day
Potential new members meet
with their RG one more time
after ranking their top 3 houses,
and attain envelopes containing
whichever bid they received. That
night, all of the new members go
to the chapel, meet their new
sisters, are given bid day shirts
and then run from the chapel to
their new chapter house and new sisters to take bid day pictures.
HOMECOMINGS ENGINES 1]E¥¥M IN ©7
Step 1: Parties
The first two weeks of each semester, fraternities throw
parties in order to get their name out there and to meet
potential new members for that semester. These "Rush
Parties" are open to everyone and are the fraternities'
main marl<eting events.
Step 2: Brotherhood Events
The rush parties are often very crowded so after meeting
the potential new members, the chapters host various
brotherhood events to get to know them better. This
is usually a night out at a venue (i.e. Dave and Busters,
ESPN Zone or dinner at nice restaurants).
Step 3: Bids!
Finally, after getting to know the potential new members
and seeing who is interested in the fraternit)', the brothers
give out bids.
Step 4: Bid Day
Similarly to sororities, fraternities inform their new
members that they received bids by calling them and
telling them the good news.
Homecoming is a traditional week at the beginning of the academic
school year where alumni return to campus and many activities are conducted.
There are tailgates, a parade, numerous functions put together by the Alumni As-
sociation and, of course, a Homecoming football game. Homecoming is a time to
celebrate our school, athletics and most importantly, our alumni. Since Maryland
has such a strong Greek community, sororities and fraternities also participate in
welcoming their alumni and celebrating during this week.
Each sorority pairs up with a fraternity during Homecoming week and
competes in numerous Greek-planned Homecoming events. Based on the over-
all theme, each sorority/fraternity pairing picks an original way to express that
Homecoming week begins with a Saturday of Service, then Olympics
on the Row, Homecoming King & Queen, Sports Days, Skits, Homecoming Pa-
rade, and ends with the Homecoming football game on the following Saturday. At
the Rededication, which was held on October 25th, the winners of Homecoming
Week are announced. Every chapter dresses up in pin attire and attends this cer-
emony. The ceremony takes place in the chapel and two types of awards are dis-
tributed. First off, the year's recipients of Order of Omega (a Greek Honor Society)
are recognized in front of the entire community and given certificates. And lastly,
the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place overall winners of Homecoming Week are announced!
This year's winners were:
1st Place: Alpha Chi Omega and Sigma Nu
2nd Place: Delta Phi Epsilon and Alpha Tau Omega
3rd Place: Alpha Delta Pi, Delta Sigma Phi and Phi Psi

Sayings such as, "Fear the Turtle" and "Turtle Power"
are common to fans of Maryland athletics. In 2006 Maryland
women's basketball coach Brenda Frese coined another say-
ing that seemed to become the theme of the Terrapin's men
and women's soccer teams, "Overtime is Our Time." Several
times this season for both soccer teams, at the end of the
normal 90 minutes the game was still not over. Both the men
and women had to push themselves, as well as their teams, to
come out strong in order to capture the desired win. For the
women overtime, seemed to take away the momentum the
girls had. Although they had played hard the entire game,
once overtime hit the usually could not pull through. One
of the few times the girls did make overtime theirs, was in
the final minute of overtime against Dartmouth when Nataly
Arias kicked the game winning goal for our lady Terps. The
men also encountered hardships when it came to overtime
this season. Losing to Bradley in double overtime, as well as
to Virginia, our men's soccer team constantly felt the pressure
this year. After a remarkable season last year, the Terrapins
worked hard to regain that momentum, during the game ;
especially in overtime. Although both teams struggled
season, each pushed through the hardships and showed tc
remarkable individual players as well as respectfully,

Dedication, hard work and a lot of time is what constructs
the core of the University's of Maryland's Men's and Women's
Swimming and Diving Team. With two-a-day practices seven
days a week that include swimming for 3 hours straight and 2
hours in the weight room, or swimming for 5 hours in one day,
these men and women know what is means to love your sport.
They train hard in the pool and out of the pool with everything
that they do and it shows. This season the members of the Ter-
rapin Swimming and Diving team showed how strong they were
when they came out with a win in their first meet against Hop-
kins, both the men and women captured a win. The men's team
then continued their strong season with a win against Duke, their
first win in the ACC. Although the women came close, they were
not able to follow the men's lead and unfortunately fell against
Duke. They came back against Richmond later in the season pick-
ing up another win for the team. With strong leadership in and
out of the pool with Jarod Schroeder serving as the 2007- 2008
interim swim coach, and Auburn Alumni Kevin Clements (1999
National Championship winner) and Demerae Christianson as
Assistant Coaches. With the high levels of commitment and hard
work that these swimmers put in, it is clear that they make Mary-

You never stop learning. That is what we are told throughout our lives and
it pertains to every area from academics to sports. The men's and women's tennis
teams both had some learning to do this season, whether it was as a team or in an
individual. The men's team was composed of many more mentors with half of the
team being either a junior or a senior and the other half freshmen and sophomores.
As a team the men were strong this season, coming out with a big 7-0 win over
Georgetown in their first match. The learning that was going on for the mean came
on an individual basis. Each upper classman took a younger player under their
wing and began to teach them what they knew about college level tennis. For the
women this season, however, the story was a little different. The women's team was
composed of relatively young players including four freshmen, three sophomores,
and only one junior. The women this season were more focused, therefore, on be-
coming a team and learning together the ins and outs of college level tennis. Junior
Michal Amir was key in the growth the each individual player, as well as the team,
this season being the oldest, as well as a strong leader.

Rushing every game this year
to lead his team, Keon Lattimore con-
stantly made headlines for Maryland
this season. Every year someone must
step out on to the field and become
the leader that everyone is looking for.
With Ralph Friedgen bringing leader-
ship to the team on the sidelines, but
Steffy not stepping up on the field-
Lattimore became the leader that the
entire team was calling for.

Rutgers, at the time, Lattimore was a
key player this season. However for
the Maryland Terrapins there always
seems to be more than one athlete
that embodies the characteristics
required to be a leader and this year
Quarterback Chris Turner was that
player. Turner led the team to the
Emerald Bowl versus Organ State, the
fifth time in the last seven seasons the
Terrapins had become bowl eligible.
Turner came out huge against Rut-
gers game when he led the team to
20 points in the second half. He also
teamed up with one of the Terrapin's
leading receivers Darrius Heyward-
Bey throughout the season to help
lead Maryland to multiple key plays.
From an 18-yard pass in the
Rutgers game, to a 37 yard rush-
ing play in the win against Boston
College, to the opening pass and
touchdown in the Emerald Bowl, the
Turner, Heyward-Bey duo was a key
component this season as well. With
the strong leadership of Lattimore,
Turner, and of course Friedgen, the
Maryland Terrapins had an eventful,
yet very exciting 2007 season.

Lacrosse, some say, was born in the state of Maryland. Most,
however, know that the sport of lacrosse was really created by the Native
Americans and is arguably one of the oldest sports in North America. Tra-
ditionally lacrosse had many different purposes including conflict reso-
lution and training of young warriors where often players were gravely
injured or even killed. Lacrosse became a sport of hard working warriors
and today this still define the men and women athletes who make the Uni-
versity of Maryland proud as our hard-working lacrosse players.
Both teams this 2008 season had key players that helped to hold
the lacrosse program at the University of Maryland one of the best in the
world. On the men's team we had Freshmen Grant Catahno who had a
cannon for a shot and Freshman Travis Reed who was a sneaky scorer in a
split second. The notorious defense at Maryland this year was was overall
solid once again. And finally with the return of defense middie Jeff Reyn-
olds, who can match- up with an opposing attackman straight up, the men
had a great season.
Our lady Terps, however, also had key players that made their sea-
son a breeze. With Seniors Dana Dobbie and Kelly Kasper who were both
recognized as two of the top 20 players in the country by Inside Lacrosse,
with Dobbie as the No. 3 player in the country and Kasper at No. 7, the
Terrapins had strong leaders. And with both of these girls named tri-cap-
tains for the 2008 season along with teammate Katie Pumphrey it is no
wonder why the girls where strong and in control this season.

After winning nineteen games straight it
seemed as though our lady Terps were unstoppable.
Not only were the girls winning, but they were shutting
teams completely out with scores like 5-0 versus Central
Michigan, 6-0 versus Northeastern, and 7-0 versus Del-
aware. Ranked #2 in the NCAA when they walked onto
the field to play #1 UNC at Chapel Hill, the girls were
ready to continue their winning streak. Unfortunately,
this proved to be tough goal for the girls. With a final
score of 3-0 the team walked off disappointed, but de-
termined to make it all the way still. It seemed as though
they could do it when they won their next game against
Villanova, with a score of 5-1, but sadly our lady Terps
fell early in the NCAA Tournament when they lost to
Penn State in the first game with a close score of 1-0.
The ladies of the University of Maryland Field
Hockey team, however, proved this year that although
your season may not be perfect, the team itself can be
outstanding. When seven girls were selected by the Na-
tional Field Hockey Coaches Association to play for the
Mid-Atlantic All-Regional team and five of those girls
selected to the first team (Seniors Kathryn Masson
and Janneke van Leeuwen, junior Susie Rowe, sopho-
more Nicole Muracco and freshman Katie O'Donnell),
four players named to the All American Squad (Kath-
ryn Masson, Katie O'Donnell, Susie Rowe, and Janneke
van Leeuwen), and having Coach Missy Meharg named
Coach of the Year for the 11th time, this team demon-
strated the true meaning of hard work and victory this

Open up strong and stay strong seemed to be the advice
that the girls on Maryland's volleyball team took to heart this
season. With their coach Janice Kruger stressing the importance
of an early win, the girls came out on the first of September with
a win against South Carolina. The girls began to grow from this
point, learning more with every win, as well as every loss. Even-
tually the ladies began to see less of those losing games, taking
the idea to stay strong literally coming through with a winning
season for Maryland. After opening the season with five straight
wins at the VCU Invitational, the ladies kept up the winning spir-
it and began to empower each other. With excellent players like
Jade Brown, Ashley Hogan, Katie Usher, Michelle Kenning, and
Senior Beth Gillming, the Terrapins left no question this season
that they were ready to dominate. After continuing to win with
only a few upsets in between, the girls ended on a high. The team
continues to achieve great things even off the court with players
like Beth Gillming who was selected as an ESPN Magazine First-
Team Academic All-District performer in the District 2 Univer-
sity Division, as an elementary education major, Gillming carried
a 3.72 GPA. With every direction covered this team of lady Ter-

"The Year of the Turtle" read the April 2002 headline in the Washington Post The University of Maryland's Men's Bas-
ketball Team had just won their first ever National Championship. Four years later it was the women's turn, with an exciting
2006 win over the Blue Devils in 2006 our lady Terps also became national champions. This past 2007- 2008 season proved to
be another "Year of the Turtle" for both the men's and women's basketball teams.
Although the men's team had a slow start to their 2007- 2008 season with losses against Boston College, American,
Virginia Tech and Ohio, once it came time for their ACC games the men began to somehow almost always find a way to win.
When famous number 50 Bambale Osby, better known as "Boom," scored the last two points against UNC for a thrilling 82-80
win over the Tarheels, Gary Williams' team knew this could very well be their year.
Our lady Terps, on the other hand, came out on top from the very beginning of the season. Even with their tough
schedule the girls were on a streak of winning games and breaking records. Whether in double overtime, with a 3-point shot
by Krisit Toliver, or a drive by Marissa Coleman, the girls always seemed to come out on top. And with four returning starters
like Crystal Langhorn, who broke Maryland's all-time rebounding record this season as well as many scoring records, it is no
wonder these ladies dominated the court this year. Once they beat Duke at home for the first time in ten years this season, the
ladies know this was defiantly their year, the school's year, the "Year of the Turtle," had returned.

With three ACC wrestlers of the week and an on going
winning streak the wrestling team at the University of Mary-
land began to make a comeback this season. The team had
a slow start this season with two losses against Edinboro at
the Fighting Scot Duals and at their next match against Penn
State. However, the team began to quickly turn their season
around. After a perfect 3-0 showing at the Fighting Scot Duals
in Edinboro, Sophomore Mike Letts was named the first ACC
Wrestler of the Week for the 2007-08 season. With Letts lead-
ing the team the Terps came out to place 3rd in the Body Bar
Systems Invitational and then continued on a winning streak
beating Michigan, Application State, Lehigh, Riders, Rutgers,
Navy and North Carolina with only one loss against Central
Michigan. The team also continued to make leaders this sea-
son as two more men where given the honor of ACC wres-
tler of the week. After the team competed at the Body Bar
Systems Invitational at Cornell, Red shirt junior Josh Haines
was named the ACC Wrestler of the Week since he went
an amazing 4-0 as well as captured the 184-pound champi-
onship title. When wrestler Hudson Taylor dominated the
competition at the Northeast Duals he was also named the
ACC Wrestler of the Week since he went 3-0 in his matches
with three falls. Taylor was again named ACC Wrestler of
the Week two more times when he went 8-0 for his matches
in December and again since he had 2 crucial pins. With
leaders like Taylor, Letts, and Haines as well as strong team
mates, it is no wonder that the wrestling team at the Univer-
sity of Maryland has made a very strong comeback sine
beginning of their season.

It was a nice, sunny day in Boca Raton, FL where the University of Maryland Lady Terps Softball team started out their
season. With Meaghan Booth on base, and the lady Terps already up one to nothing, in the ninth inning during the first game of
the girl's season a strong hit was made for the Terrapins. This allowed Booth to score and UMD to defeat number 12- ranked, at
the time, Michigan. In the girls next game against UMASS, the Softball team played hard and came together again for another
great win, 2-1. Thus the ladies of Maryland softball started their season 2-0 for the first time in school history.
Setting new records and breaking old ways, the lady Terps came out the past season and played hard. Just like their two
opening games in Florida this team held nothing back this 2008 season. As their coach Laura Watten went into her third season
has the head coach, she could finally see the team coming together and playing an amazing game. Utilizing everything from their^
tremendous athletic ability to each players ability to read the field well, the lady Terps came out huge this year and have a lot tc
show for it.

The word gold to most holds the meaning of some-
thing great, as in if something is referred to as being golden
it is seen bright, precious, and superior to others in the same
grouping. Gold is the word that defines the Men and Women's
Cross Country team at College Park. These individuals have
been superior to other collegiate runners this past season.
The teams holds superior leaders such as Meghan Braffet and
Greg Kelsey, and holds first place finishes. A gold medalist
from the Olympic games himself, Andrew Valmon leads these
teams as Head Coach. Throughout the season Braffet and
Kelsey came through for the Maryland Cross Country team as
in the NCAA Regionals, for example. Meghan Braffet placed
17th overall to at the NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional Champi-
onships hosted by Lehigh University helping both the men's
and women's team each improve their team standings from
last season with both Braffet and Kelsey also earning All-Re-
gion honors. The team did well this season too with a first
place finish at the Leopard Invitational and very strong stand-
ings at the Mt. St. Mary's Invitational to open the season.
One the most interesting things about this team how-
ever, is the fact that they have a gold medalist as a leader, men-
tor and the head coach. Coach Valmon has been coaching the
Terrapins for five seasons now and as part of the U.S. 4x400-
meter relay teams at both the 1988 and 1992 Olympic Games
he won a gold medal. With each runner at Maryland learning
from an athlete that has been so accomplished in his life time, it
is no wonder that these athletes are so superior and just seem to

mer, javelin, discus throw, high, long, and triple jump, pole vault,
standing high, long, and triple jump, pentathlon, heptathlon fi-
nally decathlon, track and field is one of the most athletic sports
there is. With athletes being able to do a wide variet)' of any of
these events, this sport calls for dedication and superb athleti-
cism. Those at the University of Maryland bring those qualities
to the table when they compete for the Terps. With sportsmen
such as Toni Aluko, Ashley Carbray, Tiffani Long, Earl Gray,
and Katelyn Poss it is no wonder the track and field team have an
excellent year. At the Thomas Invitational, the Terps had a five
first place finishes along with many others finishing in the top
ten. To show just how great this team did this season one needs
to look no further than their first event, the Penn State National
Open. Here executing for the Terps, at their highest level of
performance, was Zach Martinez and Tommy Friscia who both
posted career-best and IC4A-qualifying times. This event here
started to define the 2007-2008 season for this team.

WATER POLO (Q)

Holding their heads high and standing strong,
the varsity Women's Water Polo team is unique at the
University of Maryland. As a fairly new varsity sport
here at UMD, they are the only varsity sport that has a
women's team that is considered Division I varsity, and
does not have a men's team. The women on this team
work hard to prove themselves, not only to their com-
petitors, but also to those who don't believe in them.
This past 2008 season Coach Salyer saw early on as a
break-out season for the team. With juniors that just
got better and better with every game played, to the
freshmen that caught on quickly to the world of college
level water polo, this team came out strong and stayed
A key part of the success the girls had this sea-
son was the ability for the juniors and freshmen to blend
together as one. Teamwork is a quality everyone needs
to have and these girls showed that they could do it, in
and out of the water. With the juniors taking the fresh-
men under their wing, but at the same time treating
them as team-mates, Coach Salyer saw the girls become
one unit. When they went to San Diego, for example, for
their first game, everyone could see that the girls stuck
to their game plan, stayed aggressive, attacked, play hard
and most importantly played as one.

After a 2007 season that was plagued by
injuries and bad luck, the girls on the 2008 gym-
nastics team at the University of Maryland came
out with their heads held high and a mind-set of
determination. Ready to prove that they are one of
the best and determined to take the lessons each
learned last year and put it into action, the girls
were ready to come out strong. The team consist-
ed of two seniors, one junior, six sophomores, and
five freshmen as well as the tri-captains, Gretchen
Kittelberger, Lindsey Bonomo and Kelsey Nel-
ligan, which lead the team this season. With the
team being so young, each athlete was looking to
grow this season, while at the same time showing
the world of gymnastics what they were already
For example, Sophomore Brandi George
had an amazing freshman season as she was
named Reigning EAGL Rookie of the Year, quali-
fied individually to the 2007 NCAA Southeast
Regional Championships, was named to first
team AU-EAGL in the balance beam, floor exer-
cise and all-around and also earned second team
All-EAGL honors on the vault. Although the girls
did not have a strong showing in the beginning of
the season, opening with tw'o losses at home, each
match was much closer then the simple letter L
could show. When the girls placed 2nd out of four
teams in the Texas Woman's with Denver and Air
Force Meet, everyone began to see that determi-
nation that defined this 2008 season.

CHEER & DANCE (Q^
A new series of articles the athletic department de-
cided to feature this year was entitled "A Day in the Life..."
These where a series of articles throughout the season where
freshmen on the Competitive Cheerleading team reflected
about the team as well as the personal experiences each
girl was having at UMD. These articles reflected the more
than just the opinions of a few freshmen, but the opinions
and demographic of a winning team at the University of
Maryland. The competitive cheer team was compromised
of many fresh faces this season with some girls practically
moving across the country to be part of such a successful
group. The freshmen on the team brought new ideas and
talent to a team with many junior and senior mentors who
took each lady by the hand and welcomed them onto the
team. The strong connection that the girls made with one
another was defiantly key to the achievements this team has
had in the past couple years and a tradition of success that
the girls continued with this year. With each team-mate
coming from such a diverse areas including everywhere
from Maryland to Texas, the bonds they made where very
important as was the commitment each of these athletes
has for this sport, no doubt made the Competitive Cheer-
leading team strong this 2008 season.
