             UNIVERSITY INFORMATION
                                                            Founded in 1964
                                                  by the Church of the
                                                  Nazarene, Mount Vernon
                                                  Nazarene University held
                                                  its first classes in October
of 1968 on the former Lakeholm farm in Mount Vernon, Ohio. The land
was purchased by public subscription and donated to the university.
          With an enrollment of over 2,300, MVNU is the official university
of the East Central Educational Region of the Church of the Nazarene.
The primary responsibility for sponsorship and support of the university is
charged to the Nazarene congregations in Ohio, West Virginia, and the
eastern half of Kentucky.
          The aspiration of the university is that academic and student life
activities be integrated in a Wesleyan holiness tradition to facilitate
character, value, and cultural development to improve the quality of life.
This is expressed in the motto: "To seek to learn is to seek to serve."
          The university offers more than 80 academic programs and a full
range of pre-professional programs while granting associate’s,
bachelor’s, and master’s degrees. MVNU offers eight intercollegiate
sports (men’s and women’s soccer, women’s volleyball, men’s and
women’s basketball, baseball, softball, and golf), and students can take
part in an active intramural program.

The Campus
        The MVNU campus consists of 400 tree-filled acres on the
Lakeholm farm. The gently rolling fields, bordered on the rear by the
Kokosing River, constitute a campus of natural beauty. The university
buildings are of Williamsburg colonial design blending well with the site
and complementing Mount Vernon's reputation as "Ohio's Colonial City."
        Four dormitories (Pioneer, Oakwood, Galloway, and Redwood)
afford pleasant and attractive living quarters for residential students.
Seven apartment complexes (Maplewood, Elmwood, Rosewood, Cedar,
Birch, Spruce, and Cypress) house upper-division students.
        The major buildings include three large classroom facilities
(Faculty, Founders, and Regents Hall), the R.R. Hodges Chapel/Fine
Arts Complex, the Free Enterprise Business Center, the Hyson Campus
Center, the Lakeholm Administration Building, the Physical Education
Center, the Donoho Recreation Center, the Heritage Bookstore, the
Thorne Library and Learning Resource Center, and the recently
completed Jennie K. Moore Family and Consumer Science Building.

                     as the head coach of the MVNU women’s volleyball
                     program. Over the past nineteen seasons, Swanson
                     has led the Lady Cougars to a 652-228 overall
                     record (.741), six conference titles, eleven National
                     Christian College Athletic Association district or
                     region championships, and twelve straight trips to
                     the NCCAA National Tournament. MVNU has also
                     won 30 or more matches in each of the past ten
                     seasons, topped the 40-win mark during six of those
                     years, and recorded 50-plus wins twice.
         In 2002, Swanson guided the Lady Cougars to a 36-13 overall
record and a 12-4 American Mideast Conference South Division mark.
The team also advanced to the championship match of the NCCAA
National Tournament for the first time in the program’s history and
finished as the national runner-up despite being seeded seventh in the
10-team event.
         Swanson has also seen his teams advance to the NAIA Regional
Tournament for nine straight seasons with the Lady Cougars advancing
to the championship match in 1999, 2000, and 2001.
         During the decade of the 1990s, Swanson led MVNU to an
incredible 122-9 home record that included a 70-match winning streak.
         Swanson has been selected as the conference Coach of the
Year four times and named the NCCAA district or region Coach of the
Year ten times. In addition, he was featured in Sports Illustrated in the
“Faces in the Crowd” section of the October 6, 1997 issue.
         Swanson has developed four NAIA All-Americans, thirteen
NCCAA All-Americans, and two conference Players of the Year during
his tenure at MVNU. He has also had nine NAIA All-America Scholar-
Athletes and one Verizon Academic All-American.
         A native of Illinois, Swanson graduated from North Park (Ill.)
College in 1975 after playing basketball for the Vikings. He went to West
Virginia University after graduation and served as an assistant coach
while working on his master’s degree.
         Swanson traveled to Japan and South America as a coach with
Athletes in Action during the summers of 1982 and 1983 respectively
before taking a head coaching position at Waynesburg (Pa.) College in
1983. After a 15-15 campaign at Waynesburg, Swanson came to MVNU
where he has now had 15 straight winning seasons.
         Swanson, who also teaches in the Physical Education
Department at MVNU, resides in Mount Vernon with his wife, Susie, and
their three sons, Casey, Brady, and Riley.

Lady Cougar      11      Volleyball
                    2003 SEASON OUTLOOK
      The MVNU women’s volleyball team will look to add another winning chapter to the
program’s history as the Lady Cougars prepare to get the 2003 season under way.
      MVNU returns nine letterwinners and five starters from last year’s squad that posted a 36-13
overall record, finished second in the American Mideast Conference South Division with a 12-4
mark, advanced to the semifinals of the NAIA Region IX Tournament, and finished as the
National Christian College Athletic Association national runner-up.
      Guiding the Lady Cougars into the new season will be head coach Paul Swanson, who
enters his 20th season at the helm. Swanson has compiled a 652-228 record at MVNU and led
the program to six conference titles.
      “I am really excited about the potential that this year’s team has,” said Swanson. “Our ball
control and serve receiving have improved since last year, and everyone on our team can
contribute when called upon. We have an outstanding group of seniors who have a desire to
compete and will provide good leadership. Our returning players are all experienced, and our
incoming freshmen are all very talented. This team really has a competitive spirit, and it is fun
watching them improve each day.”
      Junior setter Katey Percival returns to run the Lady Cougars’ attack after an outstanding
season in 2002. Percival was named to the AMC South Division First Team, the NCCAA East
Region Team, the NAIA Region IX First Team, and the NCCAA All-American Second Team after
handing out 1,887 assists – the second-highest single-season total in school history. Junior
Jessica Adams will again back up Percival.
      Three returning players and one talented newcomer will each vie for playing time at the
middle hitter position. Senior Carrie Mason led the team with 510 kills last year while being
named to the AMC South Division Second Team, while senior Chelsea Knight was the team
leader with 198 total blocks as she was an NCCAA East Region Honorable Mention pick.
Sophomore Jenny Weaver was named to the AMC South Division All-Freshmen Team after
registering 200 kills and 346 digs, and freshman Dawn Lower comes to MVNU after being a
former Conference Player of the Year at Mason High School.
      The Lady Cougars should also have plenty of firepower at the outside hitter position with
four returning players and two newcomers providing plenty of depth there. Sophomore Amanda
Stevens was named to the AMC South Division All-Freshmen Team and was an AMC South
Division Honorable Mention pick after leading MVNU with 540 digs to go with 281 kills and 46
aces. Senior Jessica Harding had a breakout season with 449 kills to earn NCCAA East Region
Honorable Mention honors, while senior Jeni Vanderhoof and junior Bethany Anderson also
return to compete for playing time. Freshmen Katie Ickes (Smithville H.S.) and Katie Vipperman
(River View H.S.) will also see action in their first collegiate season. Ickes was an All-Ohio
Second Team selection as a senior, while Vipperman was an All-Conference First Team pick.
      Vanderhoof and Vipperman should each see significant time as the team’s libero, while
Adams and Anderson will also compete for playing time in the back row. Vanderhoof registered
424 digs as the team’s primary libero a year ago.
      MVNU will take part in two invitational tournaments during the regular season starting with
the Cornerstone (Mich.) University Classic on August 29-30 where the team will play the host
Golden Eagles, Cardinal Stritch (Wis.) University, Aquinas (Mich.) College, and Taylor (Ind.)
University, ranked 19th in the NAIA preseason poll. The Lady Cougars will also travel to the King
(Tenn.) College Challenge on September 26-27 to take on Southern Wesleyan (S.C.) University,
Cumberland (Ky.) College, and the host Tornadoes, who received votes in the NAIA poll.
      MVNU will look to challenge for the AMC South Division title once again after seeing its four-
year run as conference champions come to an end last year. The team will play home and away
matches against Malone College, Cedarville University, Ohio Dominican University, Shawnee
State University, Urbana University, Tiffin University, the University of Rio Grande, and Walsh
University, the defending conference and region champion who is ranked 12th in the NAIA poll.
      In addition, MVNU will play non-conference matches against Houghton (N.Y.) College, who
received votes in the NAIA poll, Daemen (N.Y.) College, the defending AMC North Division
champion, Roberts Wesleyan (N.Y.) College, Notre Dame College, Mountain State (W.Va.)
University, Saint Vincent (Pa.) College, and the University of Charleston (W.Va.). The Lady
Cougars will get the 2003 season under way on August 28, when the team plays a tri-match at
Trinity Christian (Ill.) College with Bethel (Ind.) College.

                Lady Cougar     13      Volleyball
                      2002 SEASON RECAP
       The Mount Vernon Nazarene University women’s volleyball team continued its winning
tradition in 2002 as the Lady Cougars posted an overall record of 36-13 and finished
second at the National Christian College Athletic Association National Tournament.
       The season started out well for MVNU as the team won 14 of its first 16 matches.
During that span, the Lady Cougars finished second at the Earlham (Ind.) College
Invitational and in their own Pizza Hut Invitational.
       After a third-place finish at the Indiana Wesleyan University Invitational, the team
turned its attention towards the American Mideast Conference South Division race. Over
the next nine matches, MVNU went 7-2 to improve to 23-6 overall. During that span, one of
the team’s losses came at home to Shawnee State University as the Lady Cougars’
conference home-winning streak came to an end at 78 matches – a streak that began
during the 1991 season.
       MVNU took a break from its regular-season schedule to play in the NCCAA East
Region Tournament. The Lady Cougars swept both Geneva (Pa.) College and host
Malone College to claim the NCCAA East Region title and earn an automatic berth in the
NCCAA National Tournament.
       The team went 2-3 over its next five matches as its record moved to 28-9 overall.
However, MVNU had one of its best performances of the season during that span in a loss
to Walsh University, ranked 10th in the NAIA at the time, as the Lady Cougars nearly
knocked off the Lady Cavaliers in a close, hard-fought match.
       At that point, the team made its 12th straight trip to the NCCAA National Tournament.
Despite being seeded seventh in the 10-team event, MVNU won its pool with a 3-1 record
to advance to the semifinals. In the semifinals, the Lady Cougars knocked off The Master’s
(Calif.) College in four games as the team reached the national championship match for the
first time in the program’s history. Despite losing to top-seeded and defending national
champion Olivet Nazarene (Ill.) University in the title match, MVNU had earned a lot of
respect with its runner-up finish.
       The Lady Cougars closed out the regular season with two more conference wins as
the team finished American Mideast Conference South Division play with a 12-4 record to
finish second behind Walsh.
       MVNU advanced to the AMC Tournament and defeated Cedarville University in the
quarterfinals before falling to AMC North Division champion Daemen (N.Y.) College in the
semifinals. Then, the Lady Cougars swept Houghton (N.Y.) College to take third place.
       With that victory, MVNU earned its ninth straight trip to the NAIA Region IX
Tournament. The Lady Cougars fell in the semifinals to eventual region champion Walsh
as the team finished its season with a 36-13 overall record that marked the tenth straight
year in which the program had won at least 35 matches.
       Individually, several players had outstanding seasons for the Lady Cougars. Senior
middle hitter Katie Zipf wrapped up her four-year career with a career-high 488 kills, 150
blocks, 93 assists, 79 aces, and 299 digs. She also became the 15th player in school
history to record 1,000 career kills.
       Junior middle hitter Carrie Mason led the team with 510 kills to go with 191 blocks, 56
aces, and 253 digs. She also moved into seventh place on MVNU’s career kills list with
1,265. Junior outside hitter Jessica Harding added 449 kills, 103 blocks, and 88 digs.
Junior middle hitter Chelsea Knight led the team with 198 blocks to go with 233 kills and 86
digs, while junior libero Jeni Vanderhoof registered 424 digs, 32 aces, and 54 kills.
       Sophomore setter Katey Percival had a breakout season as she posted the second-
highest single-season assist total in school history with 1,887 assists. She also added 120
kills, 80 blocks, 38 aces, and 421 digs. Sophomore back row specialist Jessica Adams
added 168 digs, while sophomore outside hitter Bethany Anderson finished with 14 kills.
       Freshmen outside hitters Amanda Stevens and Jenny Weaver each made an impact
in their first collegiate seasons. Stevens led the team with 540 digs to go with 281 kills, 46
aces, and 75 blocks, while Weaver finished with 200 kills, 67 blocks, 37 aces, and 346 digs.

The American Mideast Conference, formerly known as the Mid-Ohio
Conference, has been providing quality athletic competition for
academically-qualified student-athletes since the league’s founding in
1949. The AMC, which is affiliated with the National Association of
Intercollegiate Athletics, believes that collegiate athletics is an integral
part of the total educational program of each of its member schools. The
AMC features championships in 15 sports, seven for men and eight for
women. AMC student-athletes and teams continue to make their mark
on the NAIA national level by virtue of All-Americans, All-America
Scholar-Athletes, team rankings, or statistical leaders.

The AMC is made up of the following institutions: Carlow College,
Cedarville University, Daemen College, Geneva College, Houghton
College, Malone College, Mount Vernon Nazarene University, Notre
Dame College, Ohio Dominican University, Point Park College,
University of Rio Grande, Roberts Wesleyan College, Saint Vincent
College, Seton Hill University, Shawnee State University, Tiffin
University, Urbana University, Ursuline College, Walsh University, and
Wilberforce University.




Throughout its history, the National Association of Intercollegiate
Athletics has provided strong leadership for all aspects of intercollegiate
sports. Since its introduction of intercollegiate basketball in 1937, the
NAIA has maintained the highest standards while administering first-rate
athletics programs. Time and time again, the NAIA has stepped forward
to address the important issues of the day – be it racial integration in the
‘40s and ‘50s or establishing the first women’s championship program in
1980. The NAIA has not been afraid to enact changes while others have
watched and waited.

                 MVNU’S AFFILIATIONS
With its major emphasis on educational development, it was natural for
the NAIA to further strengthen academic eligibility requirements in the
mid-1980s. All NAIA participating student-athletes must maintain a
certain grade point average while accumulating credit hours for a
declared academic degree. Unlike other associations, NAIA student-
athlete academic eligibility is monitored on a semester-by-semester
basis. The All-America Scholar-Athlete program, a longstanding NAIA
tradition, recognizes junior and senior student-athletes with a minimum
3.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.

Since 1937, the NAIA has administered athletics programs and
championships in proper balance with the overall collegiate educational
experience. Serving higher education in this manner is a responsibility
the NAIA does not take lightly. It is a relationship built on confidence and
trust – a relationship strengthened year after year.




The National Christian College Athletic Association is a miracle
organization. In just a few years, an idea has become a reality providing
Christian student-athletes in Christian colleges and universities both an
opportunity for fellowship and competition on a national level. The
NCCAA game plan is to produce true winners – a game plan that will
carry an individual through his or her entire life. The game plan is
devised to draw out the student-athlete’s greatest potential in body,
mind, and spirit.

Since its first tournament in 1968, the NCCAA has grown to encompass
more than 100 Christian colleges and universities nationwide, both liberal
arts and Bible colleges in stature. The participating schools are
dedicated not only to the best athletic competition possible, but also to
exemplifying Jesus Christ in everything. The NCCAA is an organization
bringing Christian colleges and universities together not just for athletic
competition. More importantly, it is an organization bringing schools
together which have common goals in Christian higher education.

              VOLLEYBALL FACILITIES
         The MVNU women’s volleyball team plays all of its home
matches in the Physical Education Center on the MVNU campus. Built
in 1975, the Physical Education Center is the focal point of MVNU’s
athletic program. The women’s volleyball and men’s and women’s
basketball teams practice and play on the hardwood floor that was
installed in 1991 in place of the original tartan surface. Two regulation
volleyball courts can be set up at the same time or one main court can
be used for the typical dual match.
         The facility seats 2,000 spectators for athletic events, and the
MVNU student body is recognized for the spirited support they exhibit in
favor of the Cougars. Throughout the decade of the 1990s, MVNU
consistently ranked in the top ten in the NAIA in average and total
attendance. It was no coincidence that the team posted an incredible
122-9 home record during the same time span. The team also put
together an amazing 70-match home winning streak from 1991-1997.
         In addition to the Physical Education Center, the team also
practices in the Donoho Recreation Center, which is adjacent to the
Physical Education Center.
