Bowe tabbed All-American, highlights Volleyball's award winners

Bowe first ever WCC Volleyball All-American

Waubonsee Community College’s Erin Bowe was recently named an NJCAA Division II Women’s Volleyball Honorable Mention All-American, the first Waubonsee volleyball player to ever achieve that distinction. Bowe headlines a group of seven Lady Chiefs’ team members that have been recognized by the NJCAA’s Region IV and the Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference for their outstanding performance during the team’s historic season. Bowe was tabbed to the All-Region First Team along with Kaitlyn Richter, while Laura Lyons was selected to the All-Region Second Team. Bowe was also chosen as the ISCC Player of the Year after leading Waubonsee to the program’s first ever conference title. Along with Bowe, Allison Humes was also chosen to the All-ISCC First Team, while Richter, Ellie Martin and Faith Montalbano were each named to the All-ISCC Second Team. Third-year head coach Steve Kish was selected as both the ISCC and Region IV Volleyball Coach of the Year after leading Waubonsee to its’ first ever appearance at the NJCAA Division II National Tournament.

Bowe, a sophomore from Geneva, led the Lady Chiefs in almost every statistical category. The 5’9” outside hitter finished in the top-20 nationally among all NJCAA Division II players in kills (474), digs (754) and points (580). The Rosary High School graduate also led Waubonsee in aces (52) and was third on the team in blocks (46). Bowe was ranked as the number two player in Region IV after helping lead Waubonsee to the Division II District B crown for the first time ever in the program’s history. A First Team All-ISCC and First Team All-Region selection as a freshman, Bowe finishes her Waubonsee career as the Lady Chiefs’ all-time leader in kills (968) and points (1,163.5).

A freshman from Batavia, Lyons was second on Waubonsee’s squad in kills (447), points (531.5) and digs (717), ranking 20th nationally in that category. The 5’7” outside hitter also recorded 38 aces, third most on the Lady Chiefs’ squad.

Despite starting the season slowly due to an off-season injury, Humes led Waubonsee with 94 blocks, putting her ninth nationally in that category. The 6’1” sophomore from Somonauk High School tallied 348 kills and was third on Waubonsee’s team with 491 points.

Martin, a sophomore from Aurora West High School, was 14th nationally in assists per game with a 9.17 average. Although she missed nearly a dozen matches due to injury, Waubonsee’s setter finished with 1,027 assists and 292 digs. As a freshman Martin was a First Team All-ISCC selection after finishing 18th nationally with 1,179 assists. Her two-year total of 2,206 assists puts her at the top of Waubonsee’s record book.

Montalbano, a 5’11” middle hitter from Aurora Christian High School, booked 64 blocks to finish 25th nationally in that category. Often coming off the bench, the sophomore also compiled 270 kills and 365 points on the season.

Kish, an alumnus of Aurora East High School, has guided the Lady Chiefs to 70 wins the last two years alone, including an 18-2 mark in the ISCC play. Waubonsee’s historic 2014 season included a victory over the NJCAA’s top-ranked Division II team at the time, Kirkwood (IA) Community College. Kish’s crew also accomplished several firsts for the program including cracking the national rankings for the first time when they were tabbed 22nd nationally in November. The Lady Chiefs went undefeated in ISCC play to captured the ISCC title for the first time. Waubonsee later downed Kankakee Community College to secure their first ever Region IV crown and National Tournament berth. Although the Lady Chiefs went 0-2 at the National Tournament in Phoenix, Ariz., they finished the season 35-16 overall, tying the program’s single-season record for wins set in 1994 and equaled in 2013.

Kilbride named All-American, heads up Women's Soccer awards

Kilbride fourth Lady Chiefs' soccer player named an NJCAA All-American

Waubonsee Community College’s Haley Kilbride was recently named an NJCAA Division I Women’s Soccer Second Team All-American. Kilbride heads up a large contingent of Lady Chiefs’ players recognized for their outstanding performance this past season by the NJCAA’s Region IV and the Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference (ISCC). Along with Kilbride, Kelli Cardine, Andrea Garcia and Elizabeth Goll were each chosen to the All-Region IV First Team; while Lisa Gaffino, Lindsay Spears, Daniela Bueno, Mayra Patino and Savannah Ricker were each named to the All-Region IV Second Team.

A steady and consistent performer, Kilbride was also chosen as the ISCC’s Player of the Year after helping lead the Lady Chiefs to a conference title, going 6-0 in league play. Cardine, Garcia, Goll, Spears and Bueno were all tabbed All-ISCC First Team. In addition, Patino, Ricker, Ashley Darlak, Anne Marie Giese, Jasmine Velazquez and Olivia Cozzoni all were selected to the All-ISCC Second Team. Coach Brad Schlemmer was chosen the Region IV and ISCC Women’s Soccer Coach of the Year.

A sophomore midfielder from Rosary High School, Kilbride tallied 15 goals and 14 assists, which tied her for 13th nationally among all NJCAA Division I players in assists. Her 44 points were the 10th highest single-season total in the program’s existence. The Batavia native had three game-winning goals this past fall, while recording a point in 12 of the Lady Chiefs’ 22 matches. Kilbride, the fourth Waubonsee women’s player ever named to the All-American team, finishes her Waubonsee career sixth in points (67), fifth in assists (19) and fourth in most games with an assist (11).

Cardine, a Dekalb High School graduate, booked seven goals and nine assists on her way to totaling 23 points. The sophomore midfielder had a pair of game-winning goals this fall, while helping Waubonsee win 27 matches the last two seasons.

Garcia led Waubonsee in scoring with 22 goals, tying her for 14th nationally in goals scored. The forward from Aurora East High School also was credited with nine assists, giving her 53 points on the season. Her 53 points tied her for 15th nationally and is the fifth highest single-season total for a Waubonsee women’s soccer player. In addition, Garcia booked three game-winning goals. The sophomore finishes her Waubonsee career fourth in points (82) and tied for third in goals scored (36).

Goll, a sophomore from Plano, tallied 11 goals and 12 assists. The midfielder’s 34 total points tied her for third most on Waubonsee’s team this fall, as seven Lady Chiefs’ players reached 20 or more points.

Aurora Central Catholic High School graduate Gaffino was solid in the net for Waubonsee. A Montgomery native, Gaffino finished the season 22nd nationally in save percentage (.862) and recorded 76 saves in the 14 matches she played in. The sophomore keeper had a 1.32 goals against average while posting a 10-2-1 record.

Spears was instrumental in Waubonsee’s defense, which provided protection for Gaffino and the Lady Chiefs’ other keeper Christina Sommerfeld. A sophomore from Batavia, Spears helped lead a unit that posted three straight shutouts in the Region IV Tournament en route to outscoring their competition 23-0 and out shooting them 90-11.       

Bueno, a sophomore from Aurora West High School, contributed four goals and seven assists. Along with Kilbride and Goll, she completed the Lady Chiefs’ dominating trio of midfielders.

Patino, another key sophomore defender, helped Waubonsee dominate ISCC foes. The Aurora East High School graduate was part of a Lady Chiefs’ defense that allowed only three goals and 20 shots on goal total in six conference matches.

A forward from St. Charles East High School, Darlak netted 15 goals and four assists. The freshman booted four game-winning goals and was tied for third in points (34) on Waubonsee’s team.

Ricker, a sophomore from DeKalb, was a defender with offensive capabilities too. She helped the Lady Chiefs’ defense post seven shutouts while also registering seven goals and seven assists on the season.

A Kaneland High School graduate, Giese was part of a defensive unit that allowed only 29 goals prior to the National Tournament, the fourth lowest total in the program’s history.

Velazquez provided the Lady Chiefs with a fourth quality midfielder off the bench. The freshman from Aurora East High School chipped in with three goals and four assists on the season as well.

Cozzoni gave the Lady Chiefs a fifth legitimate scoring threat as she contributed 15 goals as well. Her total of 30 points put the freshman from Rosary High School fourth on the team in scoring.

Schlemmer, in his sixth season with the program and third as head coach, led Waubonsee to the National Tournament for the second time in the program’s history. A native of Massillon, Ohio, he has helped guide the Lady Chiefs to 82 wins the last six years including three Region IV titles, two ISCC crowns and two berths in the NJCAA Division I National Tournament.  

The Region IV title was the fourth for Waubonsee’s women’s soccer program. The Lady Chiefs eventually lost to top-ranked Iowa Western College and eighth-ranked Butler (KS) Community College at the National Tournament in Melbourne, Fla., to finish the season 15-5-2 overall, the fourth most wins in a single season in the program’s history. Waubonsee ended the season fifth nationally among all NJCAA Division I squads in goals scored (107) and assists (83). Schlemmer’s crew set school records for most goals in a game (15) and most players to reach double-digits (5) in goals scored in a single-season. The Lady Chiefs tied a school mark with nine goals in the first half of play versus Daley College in mid-October. Waubonsee also had 10 players reach double-digits in points scored for the season.

Finding Your Spot: Waubonsee Abounds with Study Locations for All

Alissa Delgado didn’t set out to find the best place on campus to crack open her books and prepare for exams and papers, alike.

But one day earlier this year, as she passed it by, she just knew:

There, in a hallway lined with benches, hiding in plain sight, she had discovered that for which she didn’t even know she had been searching .

“That was it,” said Delgado, of Montgomery, a second-year student at Waubonsee Community College. “I was just taking a shortcut to the Science Building through Weigel and Akerlow, and I found it.
“No one’s ever in there, it’s really quiet and I can spread out, put my bag up, put in my headphones and get stuff done.”

And to top it all off, she said, there are vending machines just down the hall, should she need a bit of a caloric boost.

Every fall and spring, Waubonsee students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities follow Delgado’s path, seeking just the right study spot.

While some students for a variety of reasons might prefer to study off campus, whether at home or in a workplace’s break room, among others, many Waubonsee students prefer to select from among the abundance of study locations, ranging from familiar and tranquil to bustling and unexpected, offered in Waubonsee’s array of campuses and buildings.

In Aurora and Sugar Grove, alike, for instance, students may opt for either the library or the café.

Others, like Delgado, may seek out a quiet place in a hallway, or a place they can gather with friends and share laughs and chitchat while comparing notes without disturbing others.

Zayra Juarez, of Aurora, said she can study in just about any atmosphere.

Much of the time, she said, she’s huddled around a table or lounging in a corner somewhere on campus with others, often including three fellow second-year students, Bianca Ramirez, Citlaly Rivera and Kay Cee Tillman, all of Aurora.

Some popular spots for the four friends and classmates include quiet areas such as traditional study spots like the Todd Library in Collins Hall, computer labs in the Henning Academic Computing Center and on Aurora Campus, or at Student Life in the Student Center. They also opt at times for some less prominent locations, including hallways in Akerlow Hall or a room outside Waubonsee’s Auditorium.

“There’s a spot there, right by a window,” said Juarez. “It’s one of the best spots on campus just to sit and read a book.”

For students with disabilities requiring assistance and a place to focus, Tillman recommended Waubonsee’s Access Center for Students with Disabilities on the second floor of the Student Center.

“It’s quiet up there, there are computers for us to work on, and we get all the support we need,” said Tillman. “It’s a good one.”

However, the friends said they often prefer places with a bit more activity to provide ambient noise and a wide-open feel, which they said, in some ways, enhance their study experiences.

That’s why they said they often can be found in the cafés in both Sugar Grove and Aurora.

“You get here after 3 (p.m.), or before 9:30 (a.m.), and it’s usually not too loud,” said Tillman.

“We just like the social aspect of it,” said Juarez. “We’re not much for total quiet, all the time.”

However, while they can do well in some less quiescent locations, Juarez said they don’t usually opt to study at home, which, with its familiarity and constant buzz of activity involving family and friends, can actually be more distracting than even a busy cafeteria.

“That’s why I’m here 90 percent of the time,” said Juarez, with a laugh.

Daniel Noll, a second-year student who serves as Waubonsee's Student Trustee, of Hinckley, said he also will opt to avoid studying at home, if possible.

“There are a lot of distractions at home,” he said. “I know that people who have come here are here for a purpose.”

He said his study spot-of-choice since his first semester at Waubonsee has been in a big comfortable chair in a corner near a window in the Todd Library.

“Sometimes I might be out in the APC (Academic and Professional Center), depending on what’s going on,” said Noll. “But if I really need to study, and focus, this is where I’ll come.”

The students said they generally don’t mind if other students might also uncover their preferred study spots.

“I use my headphones a lot,” said Delgado, with a laugh. “So it’s OK.”

And if fellow students should prove a bit too disruptive or distracting, Ramirez said she and her group may just head out for a more sparsely inhabited location on campus.

“If the spot’s taken, we may just go somewhere else,” said Ramirez. “We’ve got other places.”

The students encouraged their classmates to take the time to explore the campus to find the study spots suiting their needs.

“If you want it loud or quiet, or you want a lot of people, or nobody around, there are a lot of places to go,” said Tillman. “If you can’t find the spot yourself, someone might know – a teacher, other students, you never know.

“Just ask around.”

A Chance to Connect: Waubonsee Resources to the Rescue Helps Students Connect with Timely Help, Campus Community

In his last 14 years of service as a tutor in Waubonsee Community College’s Tutoring Center, Tom Clotz has helped many students improve their assignments, boost their grades and gain firmer academic footing for the scholastic journey to come.

While nominally an English tutor, Clotz, of Hinckley, said his efforts have touched the lives of students seeking help with assignments dealing with history, philosophy, criminal justice and more.

“It’s anything that involves writing,” said Clotz.

But in his experience, Clotz knows many more students, some of whom may be just as in need of assistance, will never darken the door of any of Waubonsee’s Tutoring Centers.

The reasons may be numerous. Some students may believe they do not need the help. Others may be too reluctant to ask for help. But others may not know about the resources the college has ready and waiting to assist them.

For the past two years, Waubonsee staff, assembled from such various student-centered departments as Tutoring, Financial Aid, Admissions and Counseling, among others, and led by the Student Life team, have partnered to address those concerns, rolling out the college’s Resources to the Rescue program.

“We know the first six weeks are the most critical to connect students with the resources available to them,” said Student Life Manager Mary Tosch. “Through Resources to the Rescue, we provide students with some strategies, bringing them the events and resources they need, when they need them, all along the way.”

The Resources to the Rescue effort began in early 2013, when a Waubonsee action committee, then operating under the rubric of the Foundations of Excellence, now known as Foundations for Student Success, began crafting a plan to help students find the right help at the right time, said Dr. Scott Peska, Waubonsee’s Dean for Students, who led the action committee.

“We asked the questions, ‘What resources are available for students to utilize? When should they be available? And when should we highlight them?’” said Peska.

While students may need to access the Tutoring Center, for instance, Peska said they might not recognize that need until they reach the first round of tests.

“So that might be the right time to introduce them to the services we offer through the Tutoring Center,” Peska said.

Moving quickly, the committee rolled out a plan to establish a series of events throughout the semester designed to connect students with the help they need, as well as the greater campus community.

Each semester, the event series is opened and closed by two “bookend” events.

At each semester’s opening, groups of volunteers, including administrators, staff, faculty and returning students, operate booths at strategic points on the Sugar Grove and Aurora campuses, handing out fun Waubonsee-branded items, snacks or drinks, and the information and guidance students need to make their first day on campus a success during the semiannual Welcome Waubonsee event.

To close the semester’s Resources to the Rescue events, the college hosts the semiannual Eggcellent Night for Studying, allowing students to gather in the Student Center, eat breakfast for dinner, and study for final exams with friends and classmates, while benefiting from tutors and faculty volunteers on hand to answer questions and dish out tips, guidance and assistance with assignments.

The events have borne results.

Already this year, the various Resources to the Rescue events have directly reached more than 2,900 students, connecting them with more than 50 staff and faculty volunteers.

“There’s been great energy,” said Peska. “It’s been a fun, energizing committee, and it’s outreach efforts to students foster a positive connection.”

At the fall 2014 Welcome Waubonsee, for instance, Resources to the Rescue distributed to students at all four campuses 1,700 “one-sheet” fliers, chock full of information ranging from how to access the campuses’ wireless Internet and where to get food, to information about financial aid and important upcoming dates.

And over three semesters, the Eggcellent Night for Studying events have drawn more than 400 students.

Clotz, who has worked all three Eggcellent Night events, said the events have created an “enjoyable atmosphere” for students, staff and faculty, alike.

For a tutor like him, Clotz said the most enjoyable aspect of the event is the opportunity to connect with students he wouldn’t normally see during his shifts at the Tutoring Center.

“They’re new faces, and it’s great to get to work with them,” Clotz said.

While he said he would prefer the chance to work with them on a one-on-one basis over the course of a semester, to truly measure their progress, Clotz said he believes events like Eggcellent Night allow the chance for learning professionals, like him, to make a difference in the lives of students.

“Being a community college, our students are commuters, so maybe they don’t get the chance to really get to know anyone outside their classes,” said Clotz. “Things like this are a good opportunity to help them connect.”
