Final at Davis, Calif. THE The Big West enters the 2013-14 season in its 45th year of operation and Sacramento State plays its second season as a men’s soccer member of the confernece. There are 16 conference-sponsored sports in the Big West. Men’s sports include soccer, cross country, basketball, golf, tennis, baseball and track and field. Including the Hornets, there are eight men’s soccer-playing schools in the conference split into two four-team divisions. Over four-plus decades, the conference has striven for athletic and academic success, and has accomplished those goals to a large degree. The conference has undergone membership changes throughout its long history, with the most recent ones significantly enhancing its stability and national standing during a very unstable period of conference realignment. FINAL - Sat., Nov. 10 No. 1S Cal State Northridge 1, No. 1N UC Davis 0 CONFERENCE Following the 2004-05 academic year, Idaho and Utah State left the Big West, creating an eight-team league comprised of all California schools: Cal Poly, Cal State Fullerton, Cal State Northridge, Long Beach State, UC Irvine, UC Riverside, UC Santa Barbara and Pacific. A ninth school from the Golden State - UC Davis joined the Big West ranks on July 1, 2007 after completing a four-year reclassification process from Division II to Division I. The Big West owned the distinction of being the nation’s only conference with its entire membership located in one state. However, that distinction changed on July 1, 2012 when the conference became 10 schools. The University of Hawai’i, which housed its women’s programs in the Big West from 1984-96, accepted full membership to the league and bolstered its overall makeup with a strong legacy of athletic success and academic excellence. Another change occured when Pacific departed for the West Coast Conference on July 1, 2013. Despite the change in membership, the future of the 9-team conference will still have incredible opportunity to further grow its national profile. Regardless of the membership profile, the Big West always has stacked up well against the rest of the nation. In fact, the conference has claimed 17 team national championships in its history, including six in women’s volleyball, two in baseball, one in softball and one in men’s basketball. Men’s soccer was the newest sport added to the list when UC Santa Barbara claimed the national title in 2006. 5 2012 INDIVIDUAL STAT LEADERS POINTS GP G A P Avg. 1.

After moving Sacramento State into Div. I in 1991 and the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation in 1992, Linenberger once again guided his team into a new and exciting era in 2012. The Hornets joined the Big West North Division and finished third with an 8-8-2 overall record and a 5-4-1 Big West mark, finishing just shy of a qualifying spot in the Big West Championship. The team garnered four all-Big West honors, including first-team selections for seniors Matt Linenberger and Casey Bernard. Linenberger and the Hornets moved into the Big West after a run of unprecedented success in the MPSF. The longtime head coach helped the Hornets to back-to-back MPSF Tournament titles and NCAA Tournament first-round wins in 2009 and 2010. He was named the MPSF Coach of the Year in 2009 after winning the regular season championship as well. Linenberger was also the MPSF Coach of the Year in 2001 after guiding the Hornets to their first MPSF regular season title. Linenberger began his coaching career with the Hornets as an assistant in 1988 and became co-head coach in 1989 before taking sole control of the program in 1992. He has accumulated a record of 165-237-47 as a head coach. In 2011, the Hornets finished third in the MPSF and second in the Coastal Division before falling in the MPSF Tournament. Sacramento State posted a 9-8-2 overall record with a 5-4-1 mark in conference play. It was the Hornets’ third straight winning record after tallying a winning margin just twice in their previous 18 years in Div. I. The Hornets set a school record with seven draws in 2010 during the regular season but turned on the offense in the MPSF conference tournament. Sacramento State scored 11 goals in three conference postseason games with a 6-2 win over No. 5 seed Air Force in the quarterfinals, a 3-1 defeat of No. 1 seed Denver in the semifinals and a 2-1 ovetime win over No. 2 seed Cal State Bakersfield in the championship match. The team continued to roll in the first round of the NCAA Men’s Soccer Championship, with a 2-1 win against Santa Clara before falling at UCLA in the second round. Chris Bettencourt scored five goals, with two game-winners, in the five postseason games. Senior midfielder Ernesto Carranza, who became the firstever Hornet invited to the Major League Soccer (MLS) combine after the 2010 season, had 12 points in five postseason games, including a six point performance against Air Force. The Hornets tallied a record-breaking 2009 season, in which the team went undefeated in conference play (6-0-1), won both the MPSF regular season and tournament championships, and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history. The squad finished with a 12-63 record and reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament after winning at Loyola Marymount in the first round. The 12 victories set a new single-season program record. His players received a slew of accolades after the fantastic 2009 campaign, including Carranza who took home the MPSF’s player of the year award. Carranza, Fernando Cabadas and Diego Marroquin were all named first-team all-MPSF and Carranza and Cabadas also earned all-Far West Region honors from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). Sacramento State posted an 8-9-2 mark in 2008, finishing fourth in the MPSF with a record of 3-7-0. Three Hornets earned all-conference honors, with Cabadas earning first team honors. Adam Owens (second team) and Omar Martinez (honorable mention) went on to graduate and head to Puerto Rico to continue their soccer careers at the professional level. 8 In 2003, Linenberger led the Hornet squad to its third-consecutive MPSF postseason appearance. It marked the first time Sacramento State had reached postseason play three consecutive years. During the 2001 season, Linenberger guided the Hornets to their first regular-season conference championship in the Div. I era (1991-present). Sacramento State’s 4-1-2 MPSF record also gave the Hornets their most conference wins in program history at the time. Due to his efforts, Linenberger was named 2001 MPSF Men’s Soccer Coach of the Year. Off the field, he served five years as a member of the NCAA Div. I national selection committee. Linenberger was named to the NCAA Div. I Men’s Soccer Committee in the fall of 1997. As chair of the Far West Region, he travelled to Indianapolis, and served as the region representative during the process of selecting the 48 teams that compete annually in the NCAA tournament. As a member of the NCAA soccer committee, Linenberger’s duties included overseeing site selection in the Far West Region for all rounds leading up to the Men’s College Cup, updating selection criteria and standards for the championships, rating conferences and serving at the College Cup as a member of the NCAA contingent which oversees the event. From 2008 to 2011, Linenberger was also head coach of the U.S. Soccer Olympic Development Program for Region IV, overseeing all five age groups between U-14 and U-18 in the Northwest. Linenberger was in charge of coach selection, player selection and the overall training curriculum. In addition, Linenberger was named a scout by the U.S. Soccer Federation for Project 2010, an initiative designed to make the men’s national team fully competitive by the 2010 World Cup. His primary duties included the scouting of 13-14 year olds in Northern California that had future national team potential but were not in the ODP system. Linenberger played professional soccer with the Sacramento Senators and for FC St. Pauli and SC Norderstedt in Germany’s second and third divisions. In addition, 33 of his former Sacramento State student-athletes have gone on to professional careers. That includes Joe Enochs, who was named to the 2001 U.S. National team. After a lengthly European playing career, Enochs was the head coach of VfL Osnabrück in 2011. Linenberger received a bachelor of arts degree in psychology from Duke University in 1987. He was a four-year letterwinner as a member of the Blue Devils’ soccer team and a team captain. He was captain of the 1986 squad which won the NCAA Div. I national title. ASSISTANT COACH MATT McDOUGALL Experience: Eighth Season Alma Mater: Sacramento State, 2006 Matt McDougall is in his eighth season as an assistant coach with the Sacramento State men’s soccer program. A former three-time Mountain Pacific Sports Federation honoree as a goalkeeper during his playing days with the Hornets, McDougall was promoted to the team’s top assistant in 2009 after serving as the goalkeeper coach the previous three seasons. He continues to work with the keepers. McDougall is instrumental in recruiting and the day-to-day functions of the program, including film exchange and defensive coaching. He also organizes and runs the Hornets’ numerous summer camps. In 2010, McDougall’s coaching helped rookie keeper Cesar Castillo earn Goal.com Freshman All-America honors after tallying the second most saves in single-season school history with 94. Castillo also tallied eight shutouts and posted a 0.90 goals against average. McDougall holds the Sacramento State program record with 306 career saves and is second all-time with 10 career shutouts. His 1.48 career goals against average ranks third in the school’s Division I history (min. 1,000 minutes played), and in 2004, he spent every minute in goal for the Hornets. In 2005, he earned all-MPSF first team honors after posting a career-best 1.15 goals against average and leading the Hornets to a 9-7-2 record. In his final two seasons in net for the Hornets, McDougall led the MPSF in saves. 9 MEET THE HORNETS Click HERE For Nate’s Full Bio NATE BARR Position: Defender Height: 5-8 Weight: 160 Click HERE For Cesar’s Full Bio Career Stats Goals: -- Assists: -- Points: -- 17 Class: Senior Hometown: Sacramento, Calif.

THE CAPITOL BUILDING The California State Capitol is home to the government of California. The building houses the bicameral state legislature and the office of the governor. The Neoclassical structure was completed between 1861 and 1874 at the west end of Capitol Park, which is framed by L Street to the north, N Street to the south, 10th Street to the west, and 15th Street to the east. The Capitol and grounds were listed on the office of the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, and listed as a California Historical Landmark during 1974, with a re-dedication on January 9, 1982 to commemorate the close of the bicentennial restoration project.

The Latin phrase “Senatoris est civitatis libertatem tueri” [“It is the duty of a Senator to protect the liberty of the people”] lines a wall in the chamber. The California Assembly chamber is located at the opposite end of the building. Its green tones are based on those of the British House of Commons, the lower house. The dais rests along a wall shaped like an “E”, with the central projection housing the rostrum. Along the cornice appears a quotation from Abraham Lincoln in Latin: legislatorum est justas leges condere (“It is the duty of legislators to pass just laws”). Public tours are conducted daily, on the hour, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For tour information, call (916) 324-0333. MIDTOWN Going to school and living in an urban area has its advantages. Midtown is a perfect example of that. Top: Sacramento’s midtown neighborhood features many restaurants and shops. Left: There are a myriad of old Victorian homes that have been renovated into apartments in midtown. The neighborhood, bordered by R Street on the South, J Street on the North, 16th Street on the West and 30th Street on the East, is home to many Hornets. Below: Tree-lined streets and wide sidewalks make midtown an inviting place to live. A large number of Sacramento State students live in Midtown due to the area’s fun and vibrant atmosphere and the numerous public transportation options available. Students can take both bus and light rail to get to campus. It is a largely residential community with treelined streets and old Victorians. It is also the center of Sacramento’s art, music, and cultural scene. Boutiques, bars, clubs plus upscale and casual dining abound and Midtown has the only winery located in the greater urban area. Midtown hosts the famous “Second Saturday” street fair on the second Saturday of each month, which attracts thousands of visitors. Midtown is known for being pedestrianfriendly and bike-friendly with continuous marked bike-lanes throughout the neighborhood and a bike path connecting to the American River Parkway which extends to campus and beyond to Folsom. OLD SACRAMENTO In 1853, a mammoth project was proposed to raise the city above the flood level. The ambitious and expensive proposal was not fully accepted until another devastating flood swept through the city in 1862. Within a few years, thousands of cubic yards of earth were brought in on wagons and the daring scheme to raise the street level began. The original street level can be seen throughout Old Sacramento under the boardwalks and in basements. In 1839, John Sutter arrived on the shore of the American River near its confluence with the Sacramento River. With the promise of a Mexican land grant, Sutter and his landing party established Sutter's Fort. As the settlement grew and became permanent, it attracted other businessmen looking for opportunities. Sutter and the people he attracted created a commercial center in the area, but it was the Gold Rush in 1848 that created the City of Sacramento. When gold was discovered in the nearby foothills by James Marshall, local merchant Sam Brannan rushed to open a store near the Sacramento River to take advantage of the convenient waterfront location. What was then called Sutter’s Embarcadero was soon known as the City of Sacramento and now Old Sacramento. The city rapidly grew into a trading center for miners outfitting themselves for the gold fields. Early Sacramento’s waterfront location was Top: The Old Sacramento area of downtown Above: Sutter’s Fort is now a downtown park prime for commercial success, but was prone to severe flooding. The city also fell victim to repeated fires engulfing its hastily constructed buildings composed mainly of wood and canvas. In 1850 the new city experienced its first devastating flood, and in 1852, the city was again wiped out by high water. It was apparent that drastic measures would have to be taken if it was to be saved. In the mid-1960’s, a plan was set forth to redevelop the area and through it, the first historic district in the West was created. Today, with 53 historic buildings, Old Sacramento has more buildings of historic value condensed into its 28 acres than most areas of similar size in the west. Today, “Old Sac” has flourished and is once again a thriving commercial center. Many restaurants, shops, clubs and a comedy club line the wooden sidewalks of a popular hangout for Sacramento locals and tourists alike. PROFESSIONAL SPORTS Sacramento is home to a wide variety of professional sports - from basketball to baseball and soccer. The highlight of that group is the Sacramento Kings. The local NBA franchise features players such as DeMarcus Cousins, Ben McLemore, Jimmer Fredette, and Greivis Vasquez. The Kings play in Natomas, a neighborhood north of downtown Sacramento. The Sacramento River Cats - the AAA affiliate of the Oakland Athletics - play home games from April through early September at Raley Field in West Sacramento. The local professional sports scene also features a new soccer team, Sacramento Republic FC, that is slated to open play in the United Soccer League (USL) in 2014. The Folsom Rodeo is a popular event each summer, as well as the Tour of California bike race and many local golf tournaments.
