Brian Stavisky Named Director of Compliance for SBU Athletics

(St. Bonaventure University Press Release)

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. — Brian Stavisky has been named Director of Compliance, St. Bonaventure University Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Steve Watson announced on Monday.

Stavisky, a Port Allegany, Pa. native, is responsible for ensuring compliance with NCAA and Atlantic 10 Conference rules in all areas of St. Bonaventure athletics. In addition to certification of eligibility, recruiting, playing/practice seasons and financial aid, Stavisky also serves as an on-campus reference for NCAA rules and regulations.

“We are excited to give Brian his start in the business of college athletics,” added Watson. “It is always exciting to add someone who brings a high level of commitment and determination to succeed to St. Bonaventure. He is the right fit and a great addition to the staff.”

Stavisky brings a diverse athletics background to the Bonnies after decorated high school, college and professional sports experiences. He joins St. Bonaventure after recently retiring from a nine-year professional baseball career in which he was named League Most Valuable Player and batting champion (.343 batting average) of the high-A Modesto Athletics of the California League. He was also named MVP of the short-season A Vancouver Canadians and class AA Midland (Texas) Rockhounds. During his professional career, Stavisky was a part of four league championship teams at three different levels: Modesto Athletics (2004, high-A); Midland Rockhounds (2005, AA); Sacramento River Cats (2007, AAA); and Arkansas Travelers (2008, AA).

A versatile outfielder and first baseman, he ends his professional career with a .301 batting average on 880 hits in 2,921 at-bats, including 83 home runs, 20 triples, 202 doubles and 445 RBI.

“During my baseball career I got to see what it takes to be successful at a very high level,” noted Stavisky. “That’s what I remember most and what I will bring with me to St. Bonaventure. I never had success by myself and I have a strong desire to compete and succeed as a part of this team.”

A two-time Academic All-American and three-time All-Big East second team pick for the Fighting Irish, Stavisky helped Notre Dame to a No.1 national ranking as a sophomore and an appearance in the College World Series as a junior. He was selected by the Oakland Athletics in the sixth round of the 2002 MLB Draft and also spent time in the LA Angels of Anaheim and Philadelphia Phillies’ organizations.

“After retiring from baseball, St. Bonaventure represents the next step for me,” he commented. “I want to be involved in all aspects of college athletics, and will have the opportunity to do so as Director of Compliance.”

Stavisky, the son of two St. Bonaventure graduates, earned a bachelor’s degree in business management and graduated cum laude from the University of Notre Dame.

Hello, anyone home? Hello?

Wow. December? It’s been that long since the last time I updated this blog? Wait, I can explain. The cat ate my homework newspaper. Not buying it? Umm, would you believe … witness protection program? No?

Okay, okay, I’ll ‘fess up. Thanks to a busted knee, I spent the better part of the winter sports season on the long-term DL, lounging in my living room with my leg propped up on a pillow. Kind of tough to cover games from the couch, so the local hoops and wrestling coaches got a break from having to put up with me.

Their spring-sports counterparts weren’t as lucky, though. I’ve been back out at the ballfields and tracks (and in the pages of the Reporter Argus) since early April, which means that sheer lethargy is my only excuse for not putting those reports here or sending them along to Doc McCormick’s excellent site, PortAllegany.net.

My bad. Since this blog was essentially created as an archive for my RA stories, I’ll be going back and adding a few forgotten pieces before getting around to the current stuff.

And if anyone’s still out there, I promise it won’t be another five months until the next update.

PAHS Fall All-Stars

November 25, 2008

As area basketball teams prepare to tip off their non-league schedules, with the first wrestling matches not far behind, it’s time to take a final look back at the fall sports season. Several Port Allegany High School athletes earned leaguewide recognition for their play, and for the second straight year, two selections to the prestigious Olean Times Herald Big 30 All-Star teams – one each in football and boys’ soccer – topped the list.

Picking up right where we left off …

Okay, so between occasionally showing up for my full-time job, plus covering various local sports teams for the Reporter Argus and writing about the Buffalo Bills’ spectacular collapse over at Two Bills Drive, I guess I got away from updating this blog for the last few days. Weeks. Months. Whatever.

I’ll try to do better next time. In the meantime, I’ll toss the fall all-stars and winter sports previews on here, then add the latest update on Brian Stavisky’s baseball career, which you can also find in this week’s print edition of the Reporter. (Still only .50 on the newsstand, folks.)

Josh Kinney back in the St. Louis bullpen

October 26, 2006.

The last time relief pitcher Josh Kinney walked to the mound in a major league game, his Saint Louis Cardinals were three innings away from taking a 3-1 lead in the World Series. The Cards would finish off the Detroit Tigers the following night to win their tenth world championship, and it’s not stretching the imagination to assume that a majority of the television sets in Port Allegany and Roulette were tuned to the game and the celebration that followed.

The 1997 Port High graduate realized his dream on the Busch Stadium field that autumn, and took the entire area along with him for an unforgettable ride. However, disaster struck the next spring. Kinney’s elbow locked up on him in a spring training game, and doctors discovered he’d need “Tommy John” surgery to replace the frayed and torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow.

Then, while he was working his way back from the surgery, he broke a small bone in the elbow during a throwing session in August, and it was back to Square One for more rehab.

“It’s not really the way you want to go start the season off after winning a World Series,” Kinney told MLB.com. “To start out having an injury like that, it’s already going to cost you a year. You get turned around and you think that’s bad and then you blow off a bone and that takes another year.”

Almost 700 days have passed since that rainy October night in Saint Louis, and Kinney’s long, arduous trip back to the major leagues is all but complete. Although he has yet to pitch in a game for the Cardinals, he rejoined the big-league club during their road trip to Arizona on Sept. 2, after a successful week-long rehab stint with the Cards’ Double-A affiliate in Springfield.

“Somehow or another I look back and it doesn’t seem like it’s been that long since the World Series. But it has, and here I am,” said the righthander, who turned 29 in March. “I’m just fortunate enough to be able to count my blessings and get to be able to get back to where I’m at now.”

Kinney will be close to home this weekend, when the Cardinals travel to Pittsburgh for a three-game series with the Pirates. (Game times are set for 7:05 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights, and 1:35 p.m. Sunday afternoon.) More than a few area residents are expected to make the 3.5-hour trip south to cheer on one of Port’s favorite sons.

PAHS Sports Briefs for Sept. 8-14

Cross Country:
Boys – Oswayo Valley 18, Port Allegany 38
Girls – Oswayo Valley 27, Port Allegany 29

Port’s cross country teams traveled to Shinglehouse early in the week for a dual meet against Oswayo Valley. The Gator girls barely missed the program’s first win, falling to the home team by just two points. Jessica French recorded the winning time of 22:35 on the OV course, with Jackie Lewis (25:30) and Desi Tanner (25:36) also finishing in the top five. On the boys’ side, Justin Lewis came in fifth against a strong group of Green Wave runners, crossing the finish line with a time of 19:52.

Golf:
The Lady Gators golf team fell to Coudersport on the Falcons’ home course last Monday, 34 ½ to 20 ½. Lynea Gustafson continued her strong play, earning medalist honors by shooting 47 for nine holes. After a ten-day break, the team returns to action this Thursday afternoon in a rematch at Coudy. A similar quirk in the schedule left the boys’ team without a match last week; they resumed play on Monday, when they traveled to the Smethport Country Club to face the Hubbers and the Otto-Eldred Terrors.

Boys’ Soccer:
Sept. 8 – Saint Marys 2, Port Allegany 0
Sept. 9 – Port Allegany 9, Ridgway 0
Sept. 11 – Port Allegany 1, Smethport 0

Port took a break from the Upper Allegheny Valley Soccer League schedule on Monday to get in a game against the Dutchmen, a Class AAA team. “We actually dominated Saint Marys – we had 23 shots to their 13 – but they converted on their chances, their goalie played well, and we just couldn’t find the back of the net,” Gators head coach Aaron Clark said after the loss.

The Gators rebounded to overwhelm a young Ridgway team 9-0 the next night. Kirby Elliott led the Gator attack with three goals, Tyler Payne netted one for his team-leading fifth score of the season, and Denzel Middleton, Ken Kysor, Ben Osani, Sam Shaffer, and Max Parana all scored against the Elkers. Ryan Sabolcik and Willie Postlewait combined for four saves in the win.

According to Clark, his team is a little ahead of where he thought they’d be at this point. “Honestly, if we would have been .500 going into most of our league matches, I would have been thrilled,” he said. “Right now, we’re 3-0 in the league, and if we keep doing what we’re doing, we can challenge for a league title. That’s kind of nice … but we still have to keep winning. It’s still extremely early in the league schedule.”

On Thursday, a 3-1 Smethport squad arrived at the Mill Street field intent on avenging their loss to the Gators at the end of last season. The teams played a scoreless, evenly-matched first half, with neither side able to get many quality chances on goal.

“Smethport plays a defense-first style,” Clark explained after the game. “They pack everything into the middle, and it’s very difficult to get a decent shot against them.”

Play began to shift toward the Smethport side of midfield in the second half, before Kirby Elliott finally managed to find the net in the 71st minute. His goal, on an assist from Jon Burkart, gave the Gators a 1-0 win to keep their unbeaten league record intact.

Ryan Sabolcik stopped seven shots to earn Port’s third shutout of the season, while Adam Groshek had nine saves for the Hubbers, who fell to 3-2 (2-1 in league) with the loss.

The Gators (5-2, 4-0 in league), one of just two Pennsylvania teams to earn mention in the latest Olean Times Herald Big 30 soccer rankings, hit the road for matches at Brockway and Coudersport this week before returning home to face Elk County Catholic on Saturday morning.

Girls’ Soccer:
Sept. 8 – Kane 2, Port Allegany 1
Sept. 10 – Saint Marys 4, Port Allegany 1
Sept. 13 – Port Allegany 5, Smethport 1

Down 2-0 to Kane, Bryanna Evans headed Kaitlyn Kio’s throw-in past the Wolves’ goalkeeper to bring Port back within one, but the Gators couldn’t net the equalizer. While head coach Travis Cowburn was disappointed by the loss, he was thrilled to see Kio’s and Evans’ effort result in a goal. “We’ve been working on that play a lot in practice,” he said, “and it was great to see them get one in a game.”

Port scored first against Saint Marys and the match was tied at the half, but the Class AAA Lady Dutch – a school twice Port’s size – netted three goals after the break to pull away for the 4-1 victory.

“We’re almost there,” Cowburn said the next day. “It’s slowly coming together. They’re giving me everything they have; now, we just have to take that last step and learn how to finish games.”

On Saturday morning, his team did just that against Smethport’s first-year program. Bryanna Evans scored two goals to pace the Lady Gator attack, with Amanda Kelly, Kari Drabert, and Kaitlyn Kio also finding the back of the Hubbers’ net. Senior goalkeeper Cortney Barnett saved two shots for her second win of the season.

While Evans and Kelly are battling for the team goal-scoring lead, Cowburn also praised the play of midfielder Amarae Reinard. “She’s our steam engine,” he said. “Right now, she’s the one driving this team.”

Following six straight road trips, the 2-4 Lady Gators finally returned home to play a match on their own field, taking on Ridgway on Sept. 16.

Volleyball:
Sept. 10 – ECC 3, Port Allegany 0
Sept. 11 – Austin 3, Port Allegany 0

The Gator spikers lost a 25-13, 25-22, 27-25 decision to Elk County Catholic on Wednesday before opening North Tier League play in Austin on Thursday night. The Panthers prevailed in their home gym, winning a tightly contested match by scores of 25-22, 25-22, 25-16, to drop the Lady Gators to 0-4 on the season. They returned to action against Oswayo Valley on Tuesday night before traveling to Smethport on Thursday.

Football: ECC 15, Port Allegany 0

On an overcast, muggy Saturday afternoon at Gator Field, Elk County Catholic scored on their first two possessions to take an early 15-0 lead, then managed to keep Port off the scoreboard to give new ECC head coach Travis Skrypek his first win at the varsity level.

Afterward, Mike Bodamer wasn’t pleased with his team’s level of intensity early in the game. “We didn’t come to play at all,” the Gator coach said. “The first two drives Elk County had, we were just playing lackadaisical … We backed off them in practice over the summer, and we’re paying for it now. We didn’t come out fired up to play.”

The Crusaders started at their own 40 after the opening kickoff and quickly moved down the field, using four different running backs and two timely pass completions to set up first-and-goal at the Gator 6. Fullback Josh Catalano got the call on back-to-back plays from there, scoring on the second one from two yards out, and Tom Marconi added the two-point conversion.

Less than a minute later, Elk Catholic got the ball back when defensive tackle Alex Moore recovered a Gator fumble at the Port 39. This time, tailback Kyle Gerber capped off the drive with a 4-yard touchdown run, and Catalano’s kick was good, giving the visitors all the points they’d need. Port’s defense held ECC down for the rest of the game, forcing several turnovers and only allowing them to cross midfield once more, but the offense couldn’t cash in on any of their three trips inside the Crusaders 30-yard line.

“I was happy with our defensive effort,” Skrypek said after watching his team hold the Gators, who usually field a solid ground game, to 19 yards on 31 carries. “We gave up a little bit here and there, but we really came off the ball and stopped the run, which we were hoping to do today.”

Because starter Camrin Stuckey was restricted to punting duties due to injury, Bryce Healy, normally one of the team’s best running backs, was pressed into service at quarterback, and other players also changed positions. Bodamer admitted that Stuckey’s absence was a setback, but refused to blame the reconfigured offense for the loss.

“Camrin makes things happen out there – that was definitely a big thing – but it didn’t account for the way we played today,” he said. “We just had no energy. That has to change. Defensively, we did play better in the second half,” he continued, “but we can’t get down 15-0 – especially with the low numbers we have – and expect to come back and pull one out.

“I’ll take the blame for this one; I just didn’t have the kids ready to play,” Bodamer concluded. “Hopefully we can change that next week and get them more inspired to play in the first quarter instead of waiting until the fourth quarter.”

The Gators travel to Johnsonburg Friday night to take on the Rams in their home opener, with kickoff at Memorial Field scheduled for 7:00 p.m. Johnsonburg is 2-0, with lopsided wins over Otto-Eldred and Sheffield, and will be motivated to avenge a 46-32 loss to Port in the 2007 season opener.

As of Saturday, Bodamer hadn’t seen much game film on the current Rams squad, but he expects their offense to be just as potent as last year’s. “They have one of the fastest tailbacks in the league, and a big fullback,” he said. “Their split end (Ren Yonker) went to quarterback this year, and he’s a good athlete.” Yonker threw three touchdown passes against Sheffield and has also scored on a 93-yard run, an 81-yard punt return, and a 92-yard interception return this season.

WHKS-FM (94.9) will broadcast the game, which is also available online by going to the station’s Web site (www.whksradio.com) and clicking on the “LOCAL SPORTS & EVENTS LIVE” link.

Boys’ Golf:
Sept. 3 – Coudersport 31, Port 24 / Oswayo Valley 33 ½, Port 21 ½

In their only match of the week, the boys’ golf team dropped a double-dual to Coudersport (31-24) and Oswayo Valley (33 1/2-21 1/2) on the Falcons’ home course. Sophomore Kyle Hildebrandt led the Gators with a round of 43 for nine holes, and freshman Charlie Buchanan added a 52. Other Port golfers competing included Terry Gleason (54), Marcus Borowsky (59), and Frank Austin (61).

Girls’ Golf:

Port finished eighth out of 11 teams participating at the Coudersport Invitational last Thursday, ahead of two other teams from their league. Lynea Gustafson “had the round of her life,” said coach David Roae; the Gator junior’s score of 89 for 18 holes was the lowest recorded by any Big 30 golfer at the tournament. Earlier in the week, Sarah Gordon earned medalist honors by shooting a 49 at Pine Acres in Port’s 33-22 loss to Bradford.

Boys’ Soccer:

Before the season began, Gators head coach Aaron Clark was confident his soccer team could compete with anyone on their schedule. So far, so good. In the opening week of Upper Allegheny Valley league play, Port dominated Johnsonburg by an 8-2 score on the Rams’ home turf, then returned to their own field to notch a 2-1 win over Kane.

Tyler Payne paced the onslaught in Johnsonburg with three goals, while Jon Burkart found the back of the net twice and Kirby Elliott, Jonathan Binder, and Ryan Michelitsch all chipped in with a goal apiece. Ryan Sabolcik had a quiet day in the Gator net, recording two saves for the win.

Against Kane, it was Burkart’s turn to lead the attack, as the senior midfielder accounted for both Gator goals. Sabolcik kept the Wolves at bay, saving six shots as Port improved its record to 3-1 for the season (2-0 in league).

Girls’ Soccer:

With a 3-2 victory at DuBois CC last Tuesday, the girls’ soccer team has already matched their win total from last season. Amanda Kelly scored two goals, Kaitlyn Kio added the third, and Cortney Barnett made 8 saves for the Lady Gators. The team traveled south again on Thursday, dropping a 4-1 final to Elk County Catholic. Kelly continued her scoring streak, tallying Port’s only goal in the loss. Port, now 1-2 on the season, continues their long road trip this week with games at Kane, Saint Marys, and Smethport before finally playing its home opener on Sept. 16.

Cross Country:

Team scoring wasn’t kept for the home dual meet against Otto-Eldred, but Justin Lewis and Jessica French apparently found the new course above Edison Bates Drive to their liking. Both Gator runners finished first, with Lewis recording a time of 21:02 to win the boys’ race and French crossing the finish line in 24:59 to pace the girls.

Desi Tanner (27:09), Jackie Lewis (28:21), and Melissa Haggard (31:44) also completed the 3.08-mile course on a hot, humid afternoon, with freshmen Elliott Binder (22:56), Jacob Stehle (23:38), and Adam Johnson (29:46) doing the same for the boys’ squad. Both teams resumed their schedule with a dual meet at Oswayo Valley on Tuesday afternoon, and will also run in the Franklinville Invitational Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m.

Volleyball:

The Gator spikers dropped two tough matches last week, falling to a powerful Wellsboro squad 3-0 (25-15, 25-14, 25-21) before coming up just short in a five-set loss at Allegany-Limestone. Port lost the first two sets 25-20 and 25-21 before rallying to tie the match with 25-15 and 25-18 decisions, but the other Gators managed a 25-19 win in the deciding set to secure the win. According to Olean Times Herald statistics, Alyssa Bowser and Rachel Edgreen led the Port attack with 10 kills apiece, while Stacey Johnson recorded 17 assists and Kelsey Pistner added seven kills.

Football: Curwensville 23, Port Allegany 8

September 4, 2008

CURWENSVILLE – Although the game was tied at halftime, Gators head football coach Mike Bodamer suspected his team might be in trouble against a bigger, deeper Curwensville squad. His unease was warranted. The Golden Tide offense controlled the ball for almost nine minutes of the third quarter, scoring once and mounting another long drive that stalled at the Port Allegany 1-yard line, before adding another touchdown early in the fourth to secure a 23-8 win in the Allegheny Mountain League opener for both teams.

“We just ran out of gas in the second half,” Bodamer explained after the game. “We had some bad field position, and they just wore us down. They were rotating three or four guys in at a time, and we had about 12 kids playing the whole game.

“We knew it was going to happen,” he admitted. “We just don’t have the numbers, and we absolutely ran out of gas. And that’s when injuries start.”

Those injuries included one to quarterback, Camrin Stuckey, who left the field with an apparent ‘stinger’ in the fourth quarter. After the game, he was taken to an area hospital for further examination, and Bodamer was uncertain of his status for next week.

Curwensville, led by returning AML All-Star Jesse Hoover, struck quickly in the first quarter. After a holding penalty negated a Gators first down on their opening drive, linebacker Derek Dixon broke through to sack Stuckey on the next play, forcing a punt. Hoover gathered in Stuckey’s kick at his own 33, picked up a couple of blocks, and cruised down the right sideline into the end zone for a 67-yard touchdown return. Jed Greslick added the two-point conversion run, and the home team took an 8-0 lead just 2:55 into the game.

Following another punt, the Tide offense went back to work, mixing a series of running plays with quarterback David Kalgren’s passes to Hoover to drive inside the Port 20. The Gator defense stiffened, though, and Kalgren’s fourth-down pass sailed out of the back of the end zone, turning the ball over on downs.

As the second quarter began, Port’s offense started to find its rhythm. Two strong Bryce Healy runs and a defensive pass interference penalty moved the ball into Tide territory, and Ryan Bodamer fought for three yards and a first down at the 33. However, disaster struck two plays later when Greslick intercepted Stuckey’s pass at the 18 to stop the drive.

The defense was again up to the task, stuffing Curwensville running back Ben McGary on third and short, and the resulting punt gave the Gators possession at their own 43. Taking advantage of their best field position of the night, the Port running game kicked into gear. On fourth and short, fullback Seth Lowery plowed through the middle of the line for a tough first down. Two plays later, Healy broke away from several would-be tacklers for a 28-yard run, and the Gators were on the move. After an unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty on the defense gave Port first and goal, Stuckey found Woods for a 5-yard touchdown reception on fourth down, and Lowery ran for the conversion to knot the game at 8-8 with just 0:17 remaining before the break.

Curwensville ran back the second-half kickoff to their own 43, and the Tide offense started to roll. Kalgren capped off an efficient series with a 1-yard quarterback sneak for the touchdown; his pass to Tyler Johns for the conversion fell incomplete, making the score 14-8. After a quick three-and-out by Port, the home team set off on another long drive. But with their backs to the goal line, the Gator defense stood firm once more. On fourth down from the 2-yard line, they knocked the ball away from Greslick, with Brent Frontino recovering the fumble.

Unfortunately for Port, the turnover only delayed the inevitable. Pinned at their own 1, and with Curwensville beginning to dominate the line of scrimmage, they found no room to run. After the first two plays went nowhere, on third down, Lowery couldn’t fight his way past the tacklers surrounding him in the end zone. The safety extended the Tide’s lead to eight, the resulting free kick gave them the ball at the Gator 38, and the exhausted Port defense couldn’t stop them this time. McGary’s 1-yard touchdown run, followed by Hoover’s kick for the extra point, made the score 23-8 early in the fourth quarter, and the home crowd sensed that the game was firmly under control.

The Gators would get the ball back twice more, but their best chance at mounting a comeback ended when McGary picked off a pass from Healy (in at quarterback following Stuckey’s injury). As fog started to settle over the field, the Tide ran the final two minutes off the clock for the win.
Port returns to action this Saturday at 1:30 p.m. when they kick off their home opener against Elk County Catholic. The Crusaders, helmed by first-year head coach Travis Skrzypek, left Coudersport with a 29-15 loss last weekend.
