Shurell Reader (Burton) Recognized as GEICO Alumni of the Month

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A member of the 2017 Nova Southeastern Hall of Fame class, former women’s soccer standout Shurell Reader (Burton) has been selected as the GEICO Alumni of the Month.

Reader proved to be a one-of-a-kind player during her memorable career as a Shark. A four-year member of the program under then-head coach Mike Goodrich, she continuously caused fits for the opposition and shattered more than her fair share of program records. To this day, Reader still holds at least a share of five career school marks, including: goals (40), game-winning goals (11), hat tricks (3), assists (18) and points (98). She is also tied for the NSU single-game record for assists with three. Reader’s notable numbers landed her All-Sunshine State Conference selections in 2005, 2006 and 2007. In addition, she was a three-time NSCAA All-South Region pick, while garnering Second Team All-America honors as a junior. She served as team captain during her senior campaign and was also an active member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) while at NSU.

“When I decided to come to NSU, the athletic department was still growing and I was excited to be a part of that growth,” said Reader. “Having the pleasure of playing with so many players from so many different walks of life, all brought together to play the game we individually and collectively loved so much, is what I remember most about my playing days. We were together all the time, which allowed us to become so much more than just teammates. Some of my longest friendships I have to date stemmed from this beautiful game.”

Following the completion of her Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology (2009) and Master’s in Athletic Administration (2011), Reader worked in the athletic department as a Graduate Assistant before serving as assistant coach under Goodrich for the next three years. Upon returning to Brevard County, where she grew up, Reader trained several youth girls’ club teams while also becoming the Administration Director at an indoor soccer facility. She later changed courses and was hired as the Marketing Director for a non-profit resource organization for women and children who have experienced domestic violence, and now acts as the Director of Communications at Suntree Country Club, a private, member-owned golf, tennis and social country club.

“My time at NSU was phenomenal. The campus and mission were all forward moving and innovative. NSU always seemed to be one step ahead, which became the norm for me as well. Having the pleasure of living, playing and working on the main Fort Lauderdale campus, I was surrounded by diversity and opportunity, which I was able to pull from once I graduated.”

Reader earned the ultimate honor as an athlete just three years ago when she was announced as an inductee into the 2017 NSU Hall of Fame class. As just the third women’s soccer player to join the elite group, she realizes much of an impact the university has made on her life.

“It is such an honor to be recognized. I had such an outstanding time both as a student and an athlete, and being inducted into the Hall of Fame was another way to leave my legacy long after my cleats have been hung up! NSU will always have a special place in my heart, and being an NSU Hall of Famer is a true blessing!”

Reader still resides in Brevard County, and on Feb. 28 became a brand new mom following the birth of her son, William Gabriel.

No. Sharks Tennis Honors 2020 Senior Class

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – In the first of Nova Southeastern Athletics’ recognitions of spring sports teams whose seasons were cut short prior to their official Senior Day ceremonies, today the Sharks salute the three seniors from NSU women’s tennis – Isabella Lowrey, Daniela Obando and Sarah Wardenburg.
Carrying over a stacked roster and a ton of momentum from 2019’s program-record tying 22-5, including a 7-3 mark in the formidable Sunshine State Conference (SSC) and a second-ever runner-up finish at the SSC Championships, closing the 2019 season hosting an NCAA South Regional.
The 2020 team got things moving quickly in the fall, leading to a No. 5 Intercollegiate Tennis Association ranking. Garnering a No. 1 national ranking as a doubles pair, Wardenburg joined partner Natalie Espinal to not only earn the program’s first-ever invitation to the ITA Cup, the tandem won the tournament’s DII Championship.
In the spring, the Sharks’ season was cut short with nine regular season matches to go on a 13-1 record and a 4-0 Sunshine State Conference mark. The lone loss for the Sharks came on neutral courts in Edmond, Okla. to three-time defending National Champion Barry, 4-2, at the ITA Division II Women’s Indoor Championships. At season’s end, the Sharks were posting a .929 winning percentage and have attained victory in 85.4 percent of matches across the past two years – their sights set on taking another run at the SSC Championship in late April after making the 2019 final.
“We have 3 seniors that will be incredibly missed,” head coach Doug Neagle said. “I really wish we could honor them during our final home match, but with this pandemic, things have changed all over the world. It may seem small to an outsider when talking about sport, but to them it’s a real sense of loss. We, as a team, are going to honor them the best we can because they deserve that. Sarah Wardenburg, Isabella Lowrey, and Danny Obando have definitely left their mark here. They were a part of the team that tied the programs record for most wins in a season while earning our highest national ranking in the program’s history. The stats are great, but all three of these young ladies did so much more for our program than just the wins. They helped create so many memories for themselves, their teammates and us coaches. I know these three will be successful in life whatever path they choose. They might be graduating but they are forever Sharks!”
Lowrey is a local product out of Miami as a four-time district champion and first-team All-Broward County performer from The Sagemont School. During the first season under Neagle as a recruit from the previous staff, Lowrey jumped right in the fire and played No. 1 doubles with Liucelena Perez during her rookie season, earning all-SSC and first team ITA Doubles All-America honors – the pair reaching No. 7 nationally in the final rankings after ending the season on a six-match win streak and racking up a 13-4 combined record and 7-2 in the SSC. As a sophomore, Lowrey paired with Ana Navas for a 16-7 record and went 14-10 partnering with Diane Follin-Arbelet and Chantal Nosievici in 2019. This season, Lowrey was 5-2 while working with three different partners to end 2020 with a 48-23 career doubles record. On the singles side, Lowrey overcame a challenging 1-15 rookie record to go 18-12 across the subsequent three seasons for a 19-27 career record. She was perfect in three outings this season with conference victories over Palm Beach Atlantic and Eckerd. Lowrey is a two-time SSC Commissioner’s Honor Roll awardee and will receive her degree in Exercise and Sport Science.
Coming to NSU out of AIU High School and originally Honduras’ capital city of Tegucigalpa, Obando has been one of the most prolifically-consistent victors for the Sharks in the Neagle coaching era. Obando has amassed a combined 77.1 win percentage with a 35-10 singles and 39-12 doubles record across three years on the courts for NSU. After not seeing action in her first year, Obando burst onto the scene with a 16-6 singles record and 16-7 doubles mark – including a 15-6 record with partner Andrea Ivanovic to earn the pair first-team All-SSC Doubles honors. Obando also picked up second-team All-SSC recognition for her 2018 singles effort. Last season, Obando knocked out a 13-2 singles record to earn a repeat appearance on the All-SSC Singles team and coupled with Ana Navas for an 11-3 record (2-1 with Nosievici) at No. 1 doubles to repeat on the All-SSC first team. This season, Obando was well on her way to another outstanding campaign, ranking 38th nationally and ninth in the South, collecting a 6-2 singles mark. Pairing with newcomer Tingting Pei, Obando went 10-1 in doubles – the pair notching victories in five matches against ranked foes. An Exercise and Sport Science major, Obando also had honors on the SSC Commissioner’s Honor Roll.
Originally from Pauanui, New Zealand, Wardenburg came to NSU by way of a two-time All-America performance at ASA College in Miami and has been not only steady, but a dominant force for the Sharks over the past two seasons. Wardenburg has amassed a 25-8 record in singles for a 75.8 winning percentage, while knocking out wins at an 85.3 percent rate in doubles on her 29-5 career record. During her first season with the Sharks, Wardenburg went 17-6 in singles while making appearances in every flight except No. 1 – going 7-3 in SSC play. Teaming with Espinal and Ivana Djordjevic during her junior campaign, she racked up a 21-4 doubles record to match the program doubles single-season win record and earn second-team All-SSC honors – the pair ending the season ranked No. 24 nationally. This season, Wardenburg was ever-dominant as part of the ITA’s No. 1-ranked pair with Espinal – making the most of NSU’s first-ever appearance at the ITA Cup in Rome, Ga. by capturing the DII Championship. At the season’s stopping point, Wardenburg and Espinal were 8-1 – the lone loss coming during the ITA Division II Women’s Indoor Championships in Oklahoma to No. 6 Saint Leo. The pair opened the season with a 6-3 win over 21st-ranked Alessandra Traub/Paloma Martinez from No. 13 Flagler and also topped Xiyao Wang and Daniela Farfan from No. 1 Barry in Oklahoma. In singles this season, she was 8-2, opening the year on a seven-match win streak.
The Sharks’ 2020 season concluded on Tuesday, March 10, with a twinbill of perfect 7-0 sweeping victories over Daemen (N.Y.) and Hillsdale, bringing their sweep count to a commanding 9-of-14 matches on the year. The originally-scheduled Senior Day for NSU women’s tennis was April 11 against Florida National.
Additional Shark spring teams who ended their seasons without a senior event will be celebrated weekly on Fridays over the next few weeks.

Hewitt Named SSC Women’s Coach of the Year

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – The Sunshine State Conference announced its 2020 individual awards on Thursday afternoon, and declared NSU’s head swimming coach Ben Hewitt as the Women’s Coach of the Year.
Hewitt earns SSC Women’s Swimming Coach of the Year honors for the third time after securing NSU’s fifth conference championship. With Hewitt’s guidance, six swimmers and five relay teams earned passage to the NCAA championship, and six women were named to All-SSC teams. This season NSU recorded 10 SSC top-times, broke two SSC meet records and eclipsed three overall league records.
“It’s truly an honor to be recognized by my peers,” said Hewitt. “It’s been a challenging culmination to the year for everyone and I know that each of them demonstrated great class in how they handled this situation. They all put together tremendous seasons of their own. I have the pleasure of working with them on behalf of the SSC and our athletes and we push each other to be better rather than rivalrous. That said, I am thankful to my coaching staff for executing a great season plan, for working daily to support and challenge our student-athletes and for constantly going above and beyond what it asked. I’d also like to thank our strength and conditioning staff, academic staff, sports medicine team and administrative team for their collective efforts for our program and the department.”
For the two remaining SSC women’s swimming awards, Courtney Sherwood of the University of Tampa was named Swimmer of the Year and Ewa Osiniak from Lynn University took Freshman of the Year honors.
SSC Swimmer, Freshman, and Coach of the Year awards are selected by a vote of the league’s swimming coaches following the shortened NCAA Division II National Championship. All-SSC swimmers were selected earlier this season following the conference championship meet held February 13-16 at the Long Center in Clearwater.

Matthews Adds to Résumé with Second Career D2CCA All-America Selection

ALBANY, N.Y. – Another day, another All-America honor for Nova Southeastern’s Mark Matthews, as the redshirt senior followed up his recent National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) recognition by landing on the Division II Conference Commissioners Association (D2CCA) All-America Honorable Mention Team. The All-America selection is now his fourth combined over the past two seasons.

The only player in program history to be named an All-American in multiple seasons, Matthews was arguably even better during the final year of his collegiate career. As the go-to offensive threat for the Sharks, the Bonita Springs, Fla. native paced the nation’s second-ranked scoring offense (101.8 ppg) by averaging 22.0 points, 7.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists in 29 starts. Matthews’ efforts have individually placed him on the Bevo Francis Award Top 25 Watch List, which recognizes the nation’s top player across Small College Basketball, while they also propelled NSU collectively back to the NCAA Tournament as the No. 2 seed in the South Region. Matthews scored in double figures in all but one contest this winter, including a program-best and career-high, 45-point performance against Palm Beach Atlantic on Jan. 15, in addition to a 42-point display in the Sunshine State Conference Tournament final versus No. 5 Florida Southern. In just two seasons in a Shark uniform, Matthews closes his notable career among the program’s Top-10 in points (1,317), rebounds (522) and assists (269).

Matthews was one of just two players to represent the SSC across the All-America Teams, joining Florida Southern’s Brett Hanson.

Jordan Floyd of King (Tenn.) was tabbed the D2CCA 2020 Men’s Basketball Ron Lenz National Player of the Year.

Crutchfield, Sharks Officially Announce Pair of 2020 Signees

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Despite an unfortunate end to the season in which head coach Jim Crutchfield and the Nova Southeastern men’s basketball team will be left without closure, the program has shifted gears and its focus towards the 2020-21 campaign, as Dallas Graziani and Alex Mangold were officially announced Wednesday as the newest signees within the upcoming recruiting class.

“I think the players in our system need to be good decision makers,” said Crutchfield, who has amassed a record of 52-10 over the past two seasons at NSU. “With the addition of Alex and Dallas, I think we have added two players that have a good understanding of the game, which is the basis for making those good decisions.”

The second Pembroke Pines Charter product over the past four years to land with the Sharks, Graziani proved to be a well-known spectacle within the South Florida basketball community, earning Broward Class 5A-1A Boys Basketball Player of the Year as a senior after guiding the Jaguars to their first-ever state title game. Known for his scoring ability, the lefty guard racked up an impressive 2,044 points throughout his career, leading the entire state of Florida in scoring during his junior campaign. Furthermore, Graziani was named a two-time member of the Broward Fab 5 and took home the three-point championship at the 2020 Broward County Athletic Association (BCAA) Boys Basketball All-Star Game.  

What Coach Crutchfield is saying: “Dallas has had four great seasons as a high school player here in South Florida. I think I’m as excited as anybody to see if he can bring his special skill set to the next level.”

Graziani on signing with NSU: “I chose NSU because I love the coaching staff. They are great people, and I think I’ll fit their style of play very well.”

Continuing the program’s Ohio pipeline, NSU adds Mangold to the mix following a successful four-year varsity career at Lakota East High School, where the 6-8 forward propelled the Thunderhawks to a school-record mark of 25-2 this past season. Mangold’s on-court efforts carried Lakota East to consecutive Greater Miami Conference and district championships, while he individually secured First Team All-GMC and First Team All-District 15 honors in the process. Off the court, Mangold was a four-time GMC All-Academic nod thanks to his cumulative GPA of 3.9.

What Coach Crutchfield is saying: “Alex fits the mold of our system’s frontcourt type of player. He is multi-skilled with his ability to shoot, pass and defend multiple positions.”

Mangold on signing with NSU: “I chose NSU because of the coaches and players dedicated to a winning culture. It’s a place I can see myself fitting in and having a successful career.”

NSU concluded the 2019-20 season with a record of 23-6, earning its second straight berth to the NCAA Tournament as the No. 2 seed in the South Region.
