’ c a t t r a c k s Rosenberg takes over basketball helm Shanan Rosenberg has been named the 17th men’s basketball coach at Linfield College. He replaces Larry Doty ’79 who retired last spring. Rosenberg was head men’s basketball coach for the past 11 years at Foothill College, a two-year community college near Palo Alto, Calif., where he compiled a 186-131 record. His 2012-13 team went 22-5, the best regular-season finish in program history. He will oversee the Linfield varsity and junior varsity men’s basketball squads, as well as teach health and kinesiology courses in the health and human performance department. “Linfield basketball has wonderful potential and a rich history,” he said. “I would not have accepted this position if I didn’t believe with every fiber of my body that this can be a highly successful program.” Rosenberg received a bachelor’s degree in physical education from UC Davis in 1994 and earned a master’s degree at Chico State in 1999. Anna LaBeaume ’14 Sport: Track and field Hometown: Sequim, Wash. Major: English literature Why Linfield: I really liked the idea of a small college − I wouldn’t just be a number in a classroom but I would be able to have a relationship with my professors where I could easily talk with them and feel comfortable in asking for help. Favorite aspect of Linfield: I’ve built great relationships with professors, folks at the farmers’ market and people on campus that I know I probably wouldn’t have made if I went to a big school. I grew up in a small town and I feel like I have been conditioned to mix well with smaller intimate groups. Major influence in life: My parents and my best friend, Chase O’Neil. The three of them have helped mold my character and shape me to be the person I am today. Favorite achievement: Figuring out who I am. Learned from athletics: The amount of work you put into something is directly correlated to the amount of success you get out of it. Advice for student athletes: Work hard and remember you’re doing your sport because it is fun. Summer 2013 l i n f i e l d m a g a z i n e - 2 3
