Dan Gelderloos Preseason Audio Interview

The Calvin men’s swimming and diving team continues to build momentum. Under the direction of head coach Dan Gelderloos, the Knights will feature a roster of 21 athletes this year including three divers. A year ago, Calvin finished fourth in the final MIAA standings, placing fourth at the MIAA Championships with 428 points, 65 points behind third place Olivet.

The Knights return 11 letterwinners led by sophomore Mark Rushlow (Goshen, IN/Northridge HS). Rushlow was an All-MIAA selection as a freshman last year and also qualified for the NCAA III Championships in the 100 butterfly. Rushlow had a standout MIAA Championship meet, placing third in the 100 butterfly, fourth in the 100 freestyle and ninth in the 50 freestyle.

2010 Calvin Men's Soccer Schedule

The 2009 Calvin men’s soccer season was a season to remember - certainly a season that will go down in the history books of Calvin College athletics. The goal of Calvin soccer coach Chris Hughes however is to put the 2009 season in the rearview mirror and look ahead to the 2010 campaign.

“Last year was a season that no one will ever forget,” said Hughes. “Advancing all the way to the national championship game was something our program had never accomplished before. It was a wonderful historical moment for our program and one we will always cherish. But last year was last year. We can’t focus on what happened in the past. We have to look ahead and focus on the here and now.”

2010 Calvin Women's Soccer Schedule

Only one team in MIAA history has claimed six consecutive league titles in women’s soccer. Calvin is hoping to become the second. Calvin women’s soccer coach Mark Recker realized that reaching that goal will not be easy however.

“Our league continues to add quality and balance,” said Recker. “There are several teams that are capable of making a run at the league title. We’ve seen that first hand over the past few years. Our goal is always to win the league title but we realize that everyone else in our league has the same goal.”

2010 Calvin Men's Cross Country Schedule

With a talented cast of runners, the 2010 Calvin men’s cross country team enters the upcoming season with a wealth of enthusiasm. Calvin’s 2009 squad maintained its strong tradition, capturing the MIAA title for the 23rd consecutive year, winning the Great Lakes Regional crown for the 14th straight year and placing 13th at the NCAA III Cross Country Championships.

With four individuals who were named to the All-MIAA first team and Great Lakes All-Region team returning, the Knights will be looking for continued success this fall. Leading the list of returning runners is junior Nick Kramer (Dyer, IN/Illiana Christian HS) who was named the MIAA’s Most Valuable Runner in 2009 and later earned Great Lakes Regional Athlete of the Year honors after winning the Great Lakes Regional title in mid-November.

2010 Calvin Volleyball Schedule

Continuing the momentum of a 28-win campaign from a year ago is the goal of the 2010 Calvin volleyball team. Calvin’s 2009 team finished 28-7 overall, captured the MIAA Tournament title and advanced to the second round of the NCAA III Tournament.

If the Knights are to match last year’s success or even surpass it, they will need to avoid the injury bug that bit through the roster last season, particularly in late October when the Knights were battling for a regular season conference title.

2009-10 Calvin Men's Basketball Schedule

Calvin will look to make year two inside the Van Noord Arena as memorable as the first when the Knights captured a 2008-09 MIAA title, finishing 19-8 overall and 12-2 in the MIAA. The league title came despite playing only half of a season inside the state-of-the-art 4,700 seat facility as the Knights did not move in until the first week of January.

Calvin returns two full-time starters and two part-time starters from its MIAA championship team from a year ago headlined by 6-9 senior center John Mantel (Chelsea/Chelsea HS) who garnered first team All-MIAA accolades after averaging 13.6 points and 7.3 rebounds a game while connecting on 48.7 percent of his shots and blocking 35 shots sent up by the opposition. Mantel collected seven double-double efforts a year ago and was named MIAA Player of the Week three times.
