Fifty-Four Percent of Cardinal Athletes Earned 3.0 or Better for Fall 2007

WHEELING, WV, Feb. 6, 2008 - Fifty-four percent of Wheeling Jesuit University's 247 student-athletes achieved a 3.0 or higher grade point average in the fall 2007 semester. Thirteen student-athletes achieved a perfect 4.0 for the fall semester, according to Jim Regan, academic coordinator for the Cardinal Athletics Department.

Perfect 4.0 students and their sports include: soccer, Lindsay Getz of Ontario, Canada; softball, Rebecca Nusbaum of Toledo, Ohio; women's basketball, Shayla Holenka of Shadyside, Ohio, Megan O'Donnell of Euclid, Ohio, Lindsay Stuckey of Millersburg, Ohio; men's basketball, Jhared Simpson of Glen Dale, Wis.; men's cross country/track, Levi Morris of Staford, Ohio; women's cross country/track, Brianna Clark of Friendly, W.Va., Julia McGinley of Wheeling; volleyball, Mallorie Lotycz of Maumee, Ohio; golf, Brian O'Donnell of Glen Dale, W.Va., Robby Kincaid of Glen Dale, W.Va. and Mike Goldsberry of Washington, W.Va.

Student-athletes dedicate an average of 18 to 20 hours each week to training and competition. Coaches establish policies and programs to keep student-athletes on top of their academic workloads, including mandatory study halls for all first semester student-athletes, peer tutoring and the university's Academic Resource Center that provides assistance.

Wheeling Jesuit has 18 men's and women's teams, most of which compete in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC) and NCAA Division II.

The athletic teams have won more than 45 WVIAC titles, fielding 40 Academic All-Americans, and receiving 29 WVIAC Coach of the Year awards. More than 25 percent of the University's full-time day undergraduate students participate on an athletic team.

Wheeling Jesuit University integrates the Jesuit traditions of intellectual excellence with the best of advanced technology to educate students with critical minds and compassionate hearts.

Its student-athletes volunteer weekly in the Hess Mentoring Program, perform community service at the Catholic Neighborhood Center, host West Virginia Regional Special Olympics every spring, developed a summer Student Athlete Leadership Institute for the state of West Virginia. Cardinal athletes also graduate at a higher percentage than the national average and were awarded a NCAA CHAMPS/Life Skills grant and designation in 2006.

 

Cardinal Athlete Tom Weidman Wins the WVIAC Heart & Hustle Award

WHEELING, WV, Feb. 4, 2008 - Wheeling Jesuit University Cardinal pitcher and in-fielder Tom Weidman of Morgantown, W.Va. was selected as a recipient of the ball Coaches Shannon Stewart Heart and Hustle Award for 2008.

The son of Wheeling natives Al and Mary Kay Weidman, Tom is a junior at the university and majors in chemistry. His future plans include dental school. Grandparents are Al and Josephine Weidman of Warwood and Katie and Jack Fahey of Edgwood.

Coached by Wheeling Jesuit Assistant Athletic Director Terry "Coach E" Edwards, Weidman has earned the respect of both his teammates and coaches because he is not only a talented player, he is a tenacious one.

Weidman was struck with a neurological disorder during his sophomore year that meant he had to undergo treatment and rest. It seemed that the talented young athlete was leaking spinal fluid, a dangerous condition and a scary situation for anyone.

"When you have a proven player faced with adversity, two things can happen," said Coach Edwards. "Either the athlete feels sorry for himself and thinks 'why me' or, he rises to the challenge and meets it head-on."

"Once the doctors cleared him to play, Tommy showed his leadership and resiliency by continuing to play as well as he could," he said. "He gained the respect of the entire conference."

A personable young man, Weidman wears the Cardinal's number 5 jersey and works as hard in the classroom as he does on the field.

Weidman has played baseball since he was about 5 years old and was nominated by the WVIAC baseball coaches whose criteria for this annual award is not necessarily performance or stats. Instead the Heart and Hustle criteria is based on integrity, character, leadership and unselfishness - qualities that define a good teammate.

"The irony is that, as a freshman, Tommy was all-conference second team and he is one of the better players in the conference," said Coach Edwards. "He was nominated because of the adversity he faced as a sophomore when the doctors discovered his neurological disorder. He also injured his knee in spring training that year to further complicate his health problems."

Weidman is doing well now, though he remains under the care of his physician.

The Heart and Hustle Award is given annually in memoriam to its' namesake, Bluefield State College freshman catcher Shannon R. Stewart, who died in a traffic accident while on a spring training trip in 1999. An excellent student and athlete, Stewart attended Pineville High School in Pineville, W.Va.

The traveling baseball trophy is displayed at the winners' school every year and then passed on to the next recipient each June.

Currently the Heart and Hustle Memorial Trophy is on display at Wheeling Jesuit's Alma Grace McDonough Center, in the official trophy cases where the public can view it daily.

"Sometimes an athlete comes along and 75 percent of him is as good or better than 100 percent of someone else," said Coach Edwards. "Tommy is one of these athletes. We are very proud of him."

The Cardinal baseball team starts its third season with a Feb. 22 trip to Fort Myers, Fla. for spring training and will play in the Gene Cusik Classic, opening with a 10 a.m. Feb. 24 game against St. Leo's University.

Bruno, Dant Garner Women's Soccer A-A Honors

(SAN ANGELO, TX)---A pair of West Virginia Conference women's soccer players have earned third team Daktronics All-America honors.  Davis & Elkins forward Cole Dant and Wheeling Jesuit defender Laura Bruno were selected to the squad chosen by NCAA Division II sports information directors.

Dant made an immediate impact during her first season at D&E with a league-leading 29 goals.  The Elkton, MD native was selected as the WVIAC Freshman of the Year.  Her efforts helped the Senators improve to 11-9-2 overall as they captured a WVIAC playoff spot.  Dant is the lone rookie named to the top three squads on the Daktronics All-America team.

Bruno helped Wheeling Jesuit post a 16-6 overall mark and the Cardinals claimed the WVIAC Northern Division title.  She tallied four goals and added as many assists.  The two-time All-WVIAC pick also helped the WJU defense notch eight shutouts on the season.
