While at Gonzaga, Johnson was chosen the Bulldog Fe F em Female Student-Athlete of the Year, was a West Coast Conference all-conference selecttiion on a WCC all-academic honoree and the winner of three individual tournaments.

High school/junior: Finished second at 2008 Washington Junior Golf Association state championship with rounds of 76, 76, and 77 ... Washington Junior Player of the Year in 2009 ... represented Washington at Junior Worlds ... also won two WJGA sub-district tournaments and played in the Washington Junior America’s Cup.

... ON A PERSONAL NOTE ... What is your favorite meal? “Any meal from bob’s makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.” Who, throughout all time, would you most like to meet? “Albert einstein. anyone who believes the spirit of learning and creative thought were lost in strict rote learning knows what’s up. and i want to ask him what one needs to do to get a bagel shop named after them.” Who would you put in your dream foursome? “Miguel Angel Jimenez (nothing screams cool like a nice Cuban or whatever he’s smoking), Fred Funk (only because he can pull off a skirt), Adam Scott (for the sex appeal), and Freddie “Boom Boom” Couples.” What is your favorite movie? “A close call between “A Beautiful Mind” and “Forrest Gump.” I can quote the latter better than the Pledge of Allegiance.” Who is your favorite University of Idaho professor? “Rob spear (Athletics).” What is your favorite golf memory? “My recent hole-in-one. After starting the day with a double bogey and a bogey, my head was already hanging low. Lisa hit my hat and told me that it was too early in the round for my head to be hanging. I shot 71.” What is the best advice you’ve been given? “Your brain doesn’t recognize the word “don’t.” Think positive thoughts. Instead of saying to yourself “don’t hit it in the water on the left,” instead think “aim down the right side of the fairway and just trust your swing.” Easier said than done, but I’m getting better at it!”

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS DR. ROB SPEAR

University of Great Falls (BS) University of Montanan (MBA) University of Idaho (PhD)

Rob Spear assumed the lead of the University of Idaho athleticc department during a crucial juncture in its storied history. The Vandals were seeking solidification of their conference statuss and their facilities were in need of modernization. They needed a leader with vision and passion. Spear fit the bill. First was securing a home in the Western Athletic Conference, a league that preserves historic rivalries and offers the benefits of a Division I association. Next was rebuilding the Vandals’ home. He e was on hand to oversee the final stages of the construction of the e Iverson Speed and Strength Center. Next were the playing surfacess – inside and out. The Vandals now have a SprinTurf practice facilityy outdoors and RealGrass Pro inside the Kibbie Dome. The football,l, men’s and women’s basketball, and swimming locker rooms were e renovated into modern, stylish facilities for the student-athletes. Last fall, the athletic training and equipment rooms were renovated and state-of-the-art classrooms and meeting rooms came on line as part of a multi-million dollar facelift for the Kibbie Dome. Last fall, the first phase of a new-look Kibbie Dome debuted when the plywood on the west end wall was replaced with translucent panels. When the Vandals kickoff in 2011, not only will the east wall match the west but there will be a new club area with suites, loge boxes and a clubroom as well as premium seating and a new press box. Facilities are but one area where Spear has moved the department forward. He added to the support services staff to enhance the student-athlete experience. Computer labs and academic support staff are cornerstones of a successful department and the additions and upgrades in those areas are paying dividends. In the fall of 2007, the Idaho Athletics Hall of Fame was established with 100 individuals and five teams being inducted over a two-year period as part of the inaugural class. His involvement isn’t limited to the Idaho campus. He began a second term with the NCAA’s ‘Legislative Council – one of two top-tier governing bodies in the organization. “I am honored and excited to represent the Western Athletic Conference on this governing board,” Spear said at the time of his appointment. “It is a tremendous opportunity to make an impact on future NCAA legislation to ensure we continue to provide the best possible service to the student-athlete.” Spear’s ties with athletics are life-long.

THE A LEGACY OF LEADING The University of Idaho opened its doors on Oct. 3, 1892, when it welcomed about 40 students and one 1 professor, John Edwin Ostrander. p On June 11, 1896, the university graduated its first cclass when four students marched across a stage to rreceive their diplomas. Two years later, the university awarded its first graduate degree. By 1899, a growing a body of University of Idaho alumni formed the Idaho b Alumni Association. A Alumni numbers weren’t all that grew in those eearly days. Over the next few years, the University of established its College of Agriculture, dedicated IIdaho d Ridenbaugh Hall and established the Pacific Northwest’s R first Department of Domestic Science (later to be called Home Economics). H The Administration Building fire in 1906 was a turning point in the university’s history. John Tourtellotte, a Boise p architect who had designed the state’s capitol, designed a

Today, the university is home to nearly 12,000 students and nearly 1,300 faculty and staff.

ATHLETIC TRAINING MISSION STATEMENT

The University of Idaho’s commitment to its student-athletes can be seen in the continuing enhancement and growth of its athletic training, and strength and conditioning services. With the number one goal being prevention, Idaho athlete services provides not only strength and conditioning, and preventative athletic training measures, but coordinates with sports nutritionists and sports psychologists for the overall well-being of Vandal student-athletes. “We approach our jobs first from a prevention standpoint,” head athletic trainer Barrie Steele said. “But, injuries do occur in athletics and when they do we make sure our student-athletes receive the finest in immediate and follow-up care. When they return to competition, our goal is to have them in better condition than before the injury and with a reduced chance of re-injury.” Head Athletic Trainer Barrie Steele

THE WESTERN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE WAC SCHOOLS IDAHO • BOISE STATE • FRESNO STATE • HAWAI`I • LOUISIANA TECH • NEVADA • NEW MEXICO STATE • SAN JOSE STATE • UTAH STATE In its 49th year, the Western Athletic Conference continues to evolve and features some of the nation’s best intercollegiate competition. One thing that remains unchanged is the persistent nature of the schools in the WAC to advance their programs to compete at the top levels of the NCAA. The WAC provides its student-athletes the chance to travel to scenic destinations and gain exposure in some of the nation’s most diverse markets. In addition, the WAC’s student-athletes work to achieve the highest levels of success with the academic support of their respective institutions. The WAC is the sixth oldest among the nation’s 11 Division I-A conferences. Its history traces back to July 27, 1962, when the original six-team league of Arizona, Arizona State, Brigham Young, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming began competition. The first championship was in November 1962, when Arizona won the men’s cross country title and New Mexico followed with the first WAC football title. Arizona finished second in the NCAA College World Series and, less than three years later, Arizona State claimed the league’s first NCAA title when the Sun Devils won the College World Series trophy. Fresno State was the last WAC school to earn an NCAA team title when it won the College World Series in 2008. The WAC has had just five commissioners in its history. Paul Brechler was named the first leader of the conference and held the position from 1962-1968. He was followed by Wiles Hallock (1968-71), Stan Bates (1971-80), Dr. Joe Kearney (1980-94) and Karl Benson (1994-present). Presently, the WAC crowns team and individual champions in 19 sports – eight men’s and 11 women’s. For the men, there are championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, indoor track and field, and outdoor track and field. Championships for women are held in basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field and volleyball. The WAC office has been located in the Denver area since the conference’s inception with the exception of a two-year stay in Phoenix from 1964-66.
