Coaching Staff

Head Coach

Jeff Schellenberger

Jeff Schellenberger enters his 12th season as head coach

of the women’s soccer program at Kutztown University. He was

KU’s coach from 1989-91, serving as interim coach of the men’s

program in 1992. He returned to Kutztown as head women’s

soccer coach in 1998 and has since turned the program into one

of the most competitive in the region.

Schellenberger’s teams have won 14 games each of the past

three seasons, the most wins in a season in KU women’s soccer

history.

In 2005, Kutztown finished 14-7-1 and 8-3-1 in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference

(PSAC) Eastern Division. The team reached its second straight PSAC title game

against Slippery Rock, falling 1-0.

In 2004, his squad finished 14-5-2 overall and 8-3-1 in the PSAC, earning him PSAC

East and KU Women’s Athletics Coach of the Year honors. The team won the school’s first

ever division title and reached the PSAC title game for the first time.

In 2003, Schelleberger coached the Golden Bears to a 14-4-3 overall record and a

9-2-1 mark in the PSAC. The conference victories were the most-ever in a season at KU.

Kutztown reached the PSAC quarterfinals and qualified for the NCAA Division II Championship

for the first time in school history. For his efforts, Schellenberger was named the

KU Women’s Athletics Coach of the Year.

The 2002 squad went 10-7-2 overall and 4-7 in the PSAC, after an injury-plagued 2001

squad finished 7-12, 2-9 in the PSAC. The 2000 team finished 7-7-3. His troops were 7-11

in 1999, posting four more wins than the previous year.

Prior to returning to Kutztown, Schellenberger served as assistant women’s soccer

coach at Lebanon Valley in 1997. Preceding Lebanon Valley, he was the head men’s soccer

coach at Albright College from 1994-96. In addition, Schellenberger served as head coach

of Schuylkill Valley High School’s girls soccer program from 1992-2004.

Schellenberger, a resident of Kutztown, earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from

Randolph-Macon (VA) College in 1984. In 1992, he completed a master’s degree in sport

and recreation management at Temple University. He now serves as an EPA Regional staff

member for boys soccer.

In 1993, Schellenberger received the USSF “A” license for coaching. He is an EPYSA

staff coach and instructor. In the summer of 2000, he served as coordinator for the National

USSF Coaching School held at KU. In 2002, Schellenberger became director of the Student-

Athlete Mentor (SAM) program.

Assistant Coach

Skip Sibiski

Skip Sibiski enters his third season as a member of the Kutztown

staff, serving as an assistant coach for both the men’s and women’s

teams.

Sibiski previously served as an assistant boys coach at Brandywine

Heights High School for three years. He has also been the girls head

coach at Brandywine Heights since 2003. Sibiski has 11 years of coaching

experience at the club level. Sibiski played college soccer at Moravian,

graduating in 2002 with a degree in financial economics. He and his wife, Shannon, reside

in Kutztown with their children, Kirby (10) and Beckham (7).

Coaching Staff

Graduate Assistant Coach

Rachel Napoli

Rachel Napoli enters her first year with the Golden Bear coaching

staff. Napoli came to Kutztown after completing a stellar playing career

at Wheeling Jesuit University. Napoli was a four-time West Virginia

Intercollegiate Athletic Conference all-star, earning a spot on the first

team from 2003-05. In each of those three seasons, Napoli was named to

second-team all-region honors as a midfielder. She is currently pursuing

a master’s degree in elementary education at Kutztown.

Season Outlook

Golden Bear Women’s Soccer Team Strives

For the PSAC Championship

Coming off its third consecutive

year of 14 wins in a season, the Kutztown

University women’s soccer team

sets its eyes on another post-season run

in 2006.

The Golden Bears advanced to the

Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference

(PSAC) Championship game for the

second-straight season. Both times, KU

finished as the runner up, including last

year’s 1-0 loss to Slippery Rock for the

PSAC title. KU finished 14-7-1 overall,

8-3-1 in the PSAC East.

With six starters returning, the

Golden Bears will infuse a mixture of

reserves from last year and newcomers

into the lineup in hopes of making a

third-straight post-season run.

Junior Kim Kelty again leads the

Golden Bears in the midfield. Kelty,

who earned first-team All-PSAC East

and second team All-Region honors last

year, started every contest, contributing

four goals and eight assists.

Joining Kelty in the middle will be

senior Mallary Kamen and sophomores

Cheyenne Brunner and Xiomara

Marin. Kamen started 19 games last

season. Brunner and Marin played in

22 and 20 games, respectively. Brunner

scored six goals while Marin scored

two. They will battle for the starting

outside midfielder position. Looking

to battle for time will be sophomore

Jackie Toutkoushian who played in 18

contests, scoring three goals. Newcomers

are expected to make an immediate

impact. Local product Angela Corrado

(Kutztown/Kutztown HS), Diana

3

Hopper (New York, NY/Ramapo {NJ}

HS) and Michelle Flick (Montoursville/Montoursville

HS) should all see

significant playing time.

Sophomore Julie Folsom returns to

the line-up after suffering a season-ending

injury early last year. Folsom played

in just two games before the injury. The

team’s leading scorer in 2004, Folsom

will look to jump right into action this

season. Joining Folsom at forward will

be newcomer Raven Chiara (Jamesburg,

NJ/Monroe Twp. HS). Chiara

was an All-State Central Top 20 and her

team’s MVP.

The defense last season held teams

to an average of 7.2 shots per game and

0.97 goals per game. Returning starters

in the back are senior Shelby Varone

and junior Becky Worley. Varone

started all 22 games last year, while

Worley started in 18 of the 22 contests.

Looking to fill a vacated starting spot

is junior Kristen Kentner. Kentner

started in seven of 19 games played,

tallying three goals and two assists.

Alex Butler and newcomer Jamie

Fooy (Lancaster/Hempfield HS) will

compete for time in the back field.

Senior goalkeeper Nicole Rodweller

will get the nod in net. Rodweller

started 17 contests last season. She

stopped 74 shots for 13 wins, including

seven shutouts. Her goals against

average was 0.84, fifth in the PSAC.

Rodweller will have a large role to play

as she is the only goalkeeper on the

team.

Facilities

Kutztown University is blessed with some of the top athletic facilities among Division

II colleges and universities in the Eastern United States. Twenty of KU’s 21 teams have

their home venues on campus.

Keystone Hall

The headquarters of the KU athletic department, Keystone Hall, is the hub of indoor athletic

activity on campus. The 3,400-seat Keystone Arena, located in the center of Keystone Hall,

is the home of the volleyball, men’s and women’s basketball and wrestling teams. Keystone

Hall also houses the Golden Bear Sports Medicine department, designated locker rooms for

all intercollegiate athletic teams, and a state-of-the-art fitness room. Additionally, it served

as the site of a town meeting by President George W. Bush in 2004.

Keystone Field

Located behind Keystone Hall,

Keystone Field includes the 300-

seat grass home to the Golden

Bear men’s and women’s soccer

programs. The facility debuted

in 1999.



Risley Weight Room

Athletes get extensive use out of the free-weight

room, located on the ground floor of Risley Hall,

the original gym. The weight room was recently

renovated and expanded.

Practice Fields

Kutztown expanded its practice facilities in the

spring of 2004 to include new fields for field

hockey and soccer on KU’s North Campus.

Keystone Field House

Keystone Field House is home to

the KU men’s and women’s indoor

track teams, and has been the site of

major eastern championships in recent

years. The field house is used

by all teams for indoor practice and

overflow athletic events. It is also

used for non-athletic events, such

as President Clinton’s address during

his visit in January 1995.

KU Athletics Hall of Fame

Kirsten Hansen Cherneskie (’90) became the first member of the

women’s soccer program to be inducted into the Hall of Fame in

2000. She was a standout performer during the early days of women’s

soccer at KU. Cherneskie, then Kirsten Hansen, played from 1986 to

1989. She led the team with a school record 19 goals and 40 points

in 1987, when KU won a school-record 11 games. The 11-win mark

was bettered in 2003 and 2004, but her single season records still

stand. She scored a school-record four goals twice, once in 1986

and 1987. She was named the team’s most-valuable player, while

earning All-Region honors in 1988 and 1989 (honorable mention).

Cherneskie still holds KU’s career goals scored (43) and points scored (94) records. Also

a standout in the classroom, she graduated with honors in 1990. She is a member of the

Phi Sigma Iota and Kappa Delta Pi, national honor societies. A native of Perkasie, PA,

she graduated from Penn Ridge High School. Cherneskie teaches in the Pottstown School

District and has four children with her husband, John.
