Nicole Burlinson Reflects on Earning All-American Honor


By Tim Ertle, Sports Information Director for the Ursuline Arrows

Ursuline College cross country/track and field coach Ralph White can be a very convincing person. On a recent trip to the NCAA Indoor National Championships with sophomore Nicole Burlinson, White talked a cleaning lady at a hotel into allowing Burlinson to use the pool so she could get loose between her running workouts.

Burlinson, White and assistant coach Maddy Outman were in Winston-Salem, N.C., for the NCAA Division II Indoor National Championships in mid-March because from the moment Burlinson stepped foot on campus in August of 2012, White convinced her she could become an All-American.

This is our “something”: Ursuline Arrows stride through season without their gym

gymAs members of the Arrows’ Volleyball team step up into a white cube van on a warm fall afternoon, carefully, one after the other, it is hard not to notice their lethargy. Hard practice, play and late night studying may contribute to the fatigue, but the root of their expression is travel.

At 3:45 a.m., July 20, 2013, Ursuline College felt the first disaster in its 142-year history – a tornado. The EF1 strength funnel swept through campus, causing the west wall of the O’Brien Athletic Center to collapse, disfiguring windows, its roofs, railings and doors and sending debris flying more than two miles away. More than 167 mature trees were snapped and twisted. Many more were left uprooted, their insides exposed.

Ursuline Wins Conference Award of Excellence from NCAA

Ursuline College was named the Great Midwest Athletic Conference Division II Award of Excellence winner for its work with the A.R.R.O.W.S. (Academic Readiness Requires Outstanding Work and Support) Mentoring Program, the NCAA announced.

The A.R.R.O.W.S. Mentoring Program intends to provide Ursuline College students, many of whom are student-athletes, an opportunity to mentor Warrensville Heights High School students while offering them support through the completion of high school and encouragement to pursue postsecondary education. It is the aim of the program to engage both students at Ursuline and Warrensville Heights High School in a partnership that promotes academic success and fosters ambition for further education.

From the spring semester of their freshman year to the completion of their senior year, each high school student participates in one goal setting workshop per month facilitated by the A.R.R.O.W.S. coordinator and student mentors. During each goal setting workshop, students explore career interests, college readiness and study skills.

Ursuline College believes these workshops serve as important resources for the students at Warrensville Heights High School as it provides them with foundational knowledge and sets forth expectations of what a student can expect in college and in their chosen career. The program works to ensure that the students at Warrensville Heights High School are provided with the tools and resources so as to be proficient academic achievers.

The top three finalists for the NCAA Division II Award of Excellence and overall winner will be announced during the business session at the 2014 NCAA Convention.
