Theresno one way to view Webster University.The school – founded on the principleof providing a higher education to those whomight not possess the opportunity to obtain one– today operates as a private, nonprofit,accredited university offering undergraduate andgraduate education. The home campus islocated in Webster Groves, Mo., a picturesque suburb of St. Louis. The university certainlyhas grown since it was established in 1915 and now includes more than 100 campuslocations throughout the United States and across the globe.Its created a unique educational environment at Webster, blending theconveniences of a small university with the opportunities of a large one. Webster isdedicated to academic excellence, innovation in higher education, meeting students needsin an ever-changing world and incorporating an international perspective throughout thecurriculum. Students can choose from programs in the schools of business and technology,communications or education; or select majors in the colleges of fine arts or arts andsciences. They can study in the U.S., Austria, China, Great Britain, the Netherlands,Switzerland and Thailand. Its all a part of the Webster experience. Currently the universityenrolls about 22,000 students around the globe who range from traditional college-agestudents to adult learners. They represent more than 100 nationalities.A History of Webster UniversityThe Webster University of the 21st century retains the same pioneering spiritenvisioned by its founders in the early 20th century - a spirit of academic innovation which,for almost 90 years, has not wavered. Webster University traces its roots to 1812, with thefounding of the Sisters of Loretto, one of the first religious communities of women in theUnited States. Pursuing a mission of education, the women moved westward from Kentucky,founding schools as they went.On November 1, 1915, the cornerstone was laid for a building in Webster Groves,Missouri, which would house one of the first Catholic womens colleges west of theMississippi. Loretto College, as it was named, opened with a student body of five and wasstaffed by eight Sisters of Loretto. At a time when higher education for women was notgenerally available, Loretto College was considered progressive. The College awarded itsfirst degrees, in 1919, to a graduating class of two. In 1924, Loretto College was renamedWebster College, and the following year, Webster was accredited by the North CentralAssociation of Colleges and Secondary Schools. With the depressed economy of the 1930s,Webster struggled, but the 40s and 50s were decades of gradual growth at Webster, both inthe physical dimensions of the campus and in the number of students. During the 1960s,Webster College made changes which would dramatically alter its course through the latterhalf of the century. In 1962, the school enrolled its first male students. Two men attended thefirst year and were allowed to take only a few classes in the arts.ABOUT WEBSTER UNIVERSITY2013 • WEBSTER UNIVERSITY BASEBALL • PAGE 1
  • 4. WEBSTER UNIVERSITY HISTORYBy 1968, the College was fully coeducational. The College began the Master of Artsin Teaching program in 1963 on a grant from the Ford Foundation. Designed for workingteachers, the M.A.T. was Websters first venture in offering evening classes to fulltimeprofessionals. Finding it increasingly difficult to finance the College from internal resources, in1967 the Sisters of Loretto transferred ownership of the school to a lay board of directors.In 1966, the College offered courses outside St. Louis for the first time in the KansasCity area. In 1973, Webster established its Master of Arts program. Modeled after the M.A.T., itwas designed to meet the needs of working professionals in management and service-relatedfields. The format of intensive nine-week courses, the scheduling of classes for theconvenience of working individuals, and the use of practicing professionals as instructorsanswered the educational needs of adult learners - a group then not widely represented oncollege campuses.In 1974, attracted by Websters response to adult learners, the Department ofDefense invited Webster to open its first M.A. extended campus program at Fort Sheridan inChicago. Expanding its outreach, the University now offers programs to students at 95 sites inthe United States, including 32 metropolitan campuses, 21 corporate sites and 42 militarylocations. Webster University instituted its first European campus in Geneva, Switzerland in1978. The Universitys flexible, American-style higher education attracted not only Americans,but students of many other nationalities as well. The success of the Geneva experienceprompted the University to establish three additional European campuses - in Vienna, Austria;Leiden, the Netherlands; and London, England. Campuses have also been established inHamilton, Bermuda, Shanghai, China; and Cha-am, Thailand. Renamed Webster University in1983 to reflect the schools dynamic evolution from a small womens liberal arts college to acomprehensive, international university, the institution continues its innovative leadership inhigher education.Today, Webster University has expanded the breadth of its offerings with the creationof the School of Business and Technology, the Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts, the Schoolof Education and the College of Arts and Sciences. Its 47-acre campus in suburban St. Louis,Missouri, serving the educational needs of more than 7,250 students, is the world headquarterof this dynamic, international university. Current enrollment worldwide is over 20,000 andalumni from all locations now total more than 101,000.Though Webster Universitys 90-year evolution has been dramatic, many constantsremain. Websters small classes provide students with the attention and interaction whichencourage both academic growth and personal development. The University responds to thediverse needs of students by designing and structuring programs that serve the individual, andensure that each students education is a successful blend of theoretical and practicalknowledge. The University maintains excellence in teaching as its primary purpose, and selectsfor its faculty those professionals who share in its belief that teaching is the foundation of astudent-centered academic environment. Today, Webster University is a dynamic,independent, multi campus, international university providing quality educational programs todiverse constituents, including adult learners, young traditional-aged students, corporate andmilitary personnel, and international students.2013 • WEBSTER UNIVERSITY BASEBALL • PAGE 2 2013 • WEBSTER UNIVERSITY BASEBALL • PAGE 63

  • 31. PRESEASON PROSPECTUS 2013.Jr., Springfield, IL) will be settling into corner outfield positions. Max Morohashi(Fr., Los Angeles, CA) will be doing the same thing. Lasky joins Webster fromthe junior college, College of Lake County. He is expected to anchor left field.“Corey is a guy that can flat out run. On almost any other team he is thecenterfielder. He will be around the top of our order for the next couple years.He’s a talented kid that is going to give other team’s fits when trying to get himout” said Kurich. Turner is going to be spending most of his time in right field.He comes to the Gorloks from Division II Saint Joseph’s College in Indiana.“Jared is another guy that would play centerfield on a lot of good teams. Heplays the game the way most of our outfielders do. He runs well and gets onbase. The way he swings the bat is going make our outfield a formidableoffensive machine” said Kurich. Max Morohashi will be a freshman in theoutfield. He will play both corner outfield spots as well as some first base. “Maxhas done a great job with the bat so far. We expect him to be a very specialplayer for us this year and in the years to come. His offensive skill set istremendous” said Kurich.“Our outfielders are very versatile, we have guys that can run and stealbases and we have guys that can drive the ball in the gap and drive in runs.This gives us a lot of flexibility with the lineup and what we want to do with it.We have a good mix of older and younger guys. The one constant among all ofthem is that they’re very talented” said Kurich.CatchersThe Gorlok catchers are a completely new staff this year. The threenewcomers are Ian Foege (Jr., Eureka, MO), Joe Winckel (Jr., Bonne Terre,MO) and Zach Allam (Fr., Bloomington, IN). Foege comes on after spendinglast year at junior college, Jefferson College where he played in the JuniorCollege World Series. He will do a lot of the catching duties. “Ian is anoutstanding receiver of the baseball and knows how to handle the game.Coming from a program like Jefferson College has prepared him for playing forus on a daily basis” said Getsee. Winckel comes on from junior college,Southwestern Illinois College where he hit in the middle of the order and caughtevery day. Joe will be counted upon to do the same thing at Webster. “Joe is abig guy who does great job at the plate. We expect him to hit every day for us.He will do a good job handling the pitchers” said Getsee. Zach Allam is in hisfirst year with the Gorloks. He is going to provide depth at the catching position.“Zach has done a good job in his first year with us. He can throw with the bestof them and continues to get better receiving and blocking. He has beenworking hard offensively to get better” said Getsee. Jordan Stoulp will alsoprovide depth at the catching spot.“Our catchers’ have done a great job of getting up to speed with theway we play the game. So much of the game is run through them and we can’tafford to have them be a step behind. They’ve worked hard to make sure that’sthe case. With our catchers being good we are as solid up the middle asanyone in the country. They will be a strength for us” said Kurich.2013 • WEBSTER UNIVERSITY BASEBALL • PAGE 38WEBSTER BASEBALL ALL-TIME SINGLE SEASON LEADERSSingle-Season Records Through 2009-2013Games Played: (min. 40)At Bats: (min. 100) Runs: (min. 40)2013 • WEBSTER UNIVERSITY BASEBALL • PAGE 29Hits: (min. 50)PLAYER # OF GAMES YEAR1.

Our infield is as talented as I haveever had in my seven years here, both offensively and defensively. I am lookingforward to being able to see these guys play on a daily basis. They’ve workedhard and continue to do so” states Kurich.OutfieldThe outfield is going to be another source of strength for the Gorloksagain this year. They will be led by seniors Cody Stevenson (Sr., Salem, IL),Alex Kazmierski (Sr., Orland Park, IL), and Mike Rainbolt (Sr., Kankakee, IL).Cody is coming off another season of leading Division III in stolen bases with59, he was 59-62. “Cody is our anchor. The physical things he’s been able to doon the field in his previous three years bode well for what he can do this year.He’s one of the fastest players in all of college baseball” said Kurich. Kazmierskireturns to solidify the middle of the lineup for Webster. The four hole hitter onlast year’s team was tied for the team lead in doubles and home runs. “Alex isanother guy who has been a leader for us on and off the field. He will continueto be a guy that we count on to drive runs in” said Kurich. Mike Rainbolt closesout the group of outfield seniors. Mike was another guy who hit in the middle ofthe order for the Gorloks. He drove in 34 runs in 38 games after coming backfrom a dislocated shoulder. “Mike did a tremendous job of gritting through atough injury last year and getting big hits for us. We look for him to continue thetrend of driving in runs when we need them the most. He’s a big personality forthis team” stated Kurich.There are three returners for the Gorloks in the outfield. CharlieGandolfi (So., Mundelein, IL) Isaac Behme(So., Harrisburg, IL) and JordanStoulp (RFR., St. Louis, MO) each come back improved players with talent.Gandolfi, a starter late in the year last year will continue to play a pivotal role forWebster. “Charlie’s speed and instincts make him a valuable player for us. Hecan run down a ball in the gap and does a good job of causing havoc on thebase paths. He needs to continue to get better at the plate, but works hard andwe expect him to do just that” said Kurich. Isaac Behme had 32 starts in theoutfield last year. He had another good fall with at the plate and will be countedupon to hit for the Gorloks again this spring. “Isaac will be in the mix for a lot ofat-bats again this year. He made progress over the summer and fall. He’s atalented young man with a great skill set” said Kurich. Jordan Stoulp finishes upthe returning outfielders. Jordan is coming off surgery that forced him to sit outall of last year. He will be expected to be in the mix for both the corner outfieldspots. “Jordan is as strong of a kid as we have in the program. He works hardand can really hit. I expect him to hit for us” stated Kurich.Three newcomers are going to play big roles for the Gorloks in theoutfield. Junior transfers, Corey Lasky (Jr., Vernon Hills, IL) and Jared Turner (PRESEASON PROSPECTUS 20132013 • WEBSTER UNIVERSITY BASEBALL • PAGE 37
  • 33. PRESEASON PROSPECTUS 2013InfieldThe 2013 Gorlok infield will be a talented group that is going to becounted upon as the backbone of the defense. The loss of SLIAC Player of theYear Tom Henke is going to hurt, but the rest of the Gorloks are ready to pick upthe slack.Mitchell Bonds (Sr., Decatur, IL) and Colin Bates (Sr., Colorado Springs,CO) are the only seniors on the infield this year. Mitch, the only Gorlok player toever hit a home run in the World Series will be counted on to anchor down thethird base position. “Mitch played great at the end of the year last year. He is aleader both on and off the field for us and gives a great example for the youngerguys to follow. Colin Bates is going to contribute at first base and with his bat.“Colin is looking for his at-bats at first base. His knowledge will be anindispensable asset as the season continues” stated Kurich.Returners on the infield are Taylor Stoulp (Jr., St. Louis, MO), KevinKojs (Jr., New Lenox, IL), Jared Storment (So., Salem, IL) and MaxOppenheimer (So., Lombard, IL). Taylor Stoulp anchored down shortstop lastyear and will again be counted upon in the middle of the infield. The CentralRegional Tournament MVP will play another big part for the Gorloks. “Taylorwas tremendous for us day-in and day-out last year. He is a plus defensiveplayer and a great middle of the order bat” stated Kurich. Kevin Kojs will also beback. The College World Series record holder for consecutive at-bats with a hit(9) will be counted on in the middle infield and as an offensive catalyst. “Kevinwas great for us at the end of the year last year. We are looking forward toseeing him continue that progress and be a major contributor” said Kurich. JaredStorment is going to be in the mix for playing time at first base as well asdesignated hitter. “Storment’s big body is prototypical of first basemen. Thestrides he’s made offensively bode well for him and us” said Kurich. Roundingout the returners is Max Oppenheimer, Max is going to be relied upon in themiddle infield. His soft hands make him an asset to pitchers and he continues tomake progress offensively. “Max does a great job with the glove and hiscontinuing growth at the plate make him a player for us” said Kurich.There are three newcomers to the infield this year. Ryan Hall (Jr.,Eureka, MO), Brett Buchanan (Jr., Villa Park, IL) and Korie Vire (Fr., Catlin, IL),are joining a very talented infield group. Hall, a transfer from Division I Universityof Central Arkansas, the talented junior will be expected to fall in at shortstopand provide another great middle of the order bat. “Ryan plays a great shortstopand swings the bat well. Also, he can run and fits into our overall offensivescheme very well. We expect him to be a leader and contributor right away” saidKurich. Buchanan will contribute at first base and designated hitter when he isnot on the mound. “The way Brett swings that bat is going to force us to use himas a hitter, and his soft hands at first are going help the infielders and pitchersout as well” said Kurich. Korie Vire is going to provide depth at the third baseposition. “Korie’s work ethic is going to help us. He is a strong kid who swings2013 • WEBSTER UNIVERSITY BASEBALL • PAGE 36PLAYER ERA YEAR1.
