The Big Sky celebrates its 51st year of athletic competition in 2013-14. After spending six years as a nine-team league, the league expanded to 11 teams last season. North Dakota and Southern Utah joined the league in all sports while Cal Poly and UC Davis became affiliates for football only, making the Big Sky a 13-team football league. There are 10 soccer-playing schools in the conference as Montana State does not field a team. In addition to the new schools, the Big Sky includes Eastern Washington, Idaho State, Montana, Montana State, Northern Arizona, Northern Colorado, Portland State, Sacramento State and Weber State. Northern Colorado was the newest member of the league, having joined the conference in 2006. The Big Sky was established in 1963 by six charter members â€“ Idaho, Idaho State, Gonzaga, Montana, Montana State and Weber State. Those six schools formed the foundation of the Big Sky before the league expanded in 1970 by adding Boise State and Northern Arizona. Gonzaga left the league in 1979 and was replaced by Nevada, which gave the league eight members. The conference grew to nine schools in 1987 with the addition of Eastern Washington. The 1990s saw change in the makeup of the league, beginning in 1992 when Nevada departed and put the Big Sky back at eight teams. In 1996 Boise State and Idaho left and the conference added Portland State, Sacramento State and Cal State Northridge. The Big Sky maintained nine teams for five years before Cal State Northridge departed in the spring of 2001. The Big Sky spreads across nine states, spanning from the Pacific Ocean to the Rocky Mountain Front. The Big Sky is represented along the entire west coast with schools in Washington, Oregon and California. League schools also range up and down the Rocky Mountains with institutions in Montana, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, North Dakota and Colorado. Of the eight westernmost states in the contiguous United States only one, Nevada, is not represented in the Big Sky. 5 6 2012 BIG SKY TEAM STATISTICAL LEADERS 2012 INDIVIDUAL LEADERS POINTS GP G A P Avg. 1.

Dedini, who took over the squad in 2007, has guided the Hornets to unprecedented success, including two NCAA Tournament appeareances and two conference titles, both firsts in school history. Dedini, who enters the 2013 season with a career record of 49-45-19 (19-15-10 Big Sky), has guided Sacramento State to winning conference records in four of his first six seasons, including a regular season title in 2007. The Hornets also won the Big Sky Conference Tournament title in 2007 and again in 2010 to earn the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. Dedini has mentored 24 first or second team all-Big Sky selections, including offensive player of the year Katie McCoy in 2007 and conference Golden Boot (point leader in conference games) winners McCoy (2007) and Kim Kemper (2008). McCoy and Elece McBride were named Big Sky Tournament MVPs in 2007 and 2010, respectively. The team had eight all-Big Sky selections in 2012, including a first team honor for senior Victoria Ramirez and a second team accolade for freshman Kassidy Kellogg. Dedini, a former goalkeeper at Sonoma State, helped mold local product Savannah Abercrombie into one of the top goalies the Big Sky has ever seen. Abercrombie tacked on six shutouts as a senior in 2011, pushing her career total to 29, both a conference and school record. Abercrombie finished her stellar four-year career with a 30-28-9 record, 282 saves and a sparkling 0.92 goals against average. Overall, the Hornets went 6-9-2 in 2011 and 5-9-4 in 2012, but will have a veteran squad in 2013 with five starters and 20 total players returning from the 2012 roster. Dedini took home Big Sky Conference Coach of the Year honors in 2010 and capped off his fourth season at the helm of the Sacramento State program with his second conference championship. Dedini and the Hornets defeated No. 1 seed and host Northern Arizona, 1-0, in the tournament championship game to clinch their second league title in four seasons. The Hornets posted a 9-10-1 record in 2010, capping off a late-charging season with wins over Portland State in the semifinals and NAU in the championship match of the Big Sky Conference Tournament. The Hornets met No. 1 ranked Stanford in the first round of the 2010 NCAA Tournament, losing 3-0. Sacramento State, which had the top offense in the conference with 34 goals scored, was the No. 3 seed in the Big Sky Tournament after going 4-3-0 in conference play during the regular season. Leah Larot was named first team all-conference and the Golden Boot winner after leading the Hornets and the conference with 10 goals. Sacramento State went 8-5-5 in 2009 (3-2-2 Big Sky) in Dedini’s third season as head coach. The Hornets had the stingiest defense in the conference, allowing just 13 total scores while netting 20 goals. Abercrombie was three times named Big Sky Defensive Player of the Week and seven players were given all-conference honors, including a first-team selection for defender Cori Shreve. The team finished the 2008 campaign with a 9-8-2 overall record, including a 3-3-1 mark in Big Sky Conference play. Two Hornets, Kemper and Kara Taylor, earned first team all-Big Sky honors, while four others earned honorable mention accolades. Kemper also became the second straight Hornet to win the Big Sky Golden Boot award, given to the league’s scoring leader. In his first season as head coach, Dedini guided the Hornets to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history after collecting their first-ever Big Sky Conference Tournament title. The Hornets also won the Big Sky regular season title in 2007 for the first time in school history while posting a program-record 12 wins. For his efforts, Dedini earned Big Sky Conference Coach of the Year honors - the first head man in program history to do so. Dedini oversaw nine Hornets who earned all-Big Sky honors during his first season, including McCoy, the Big Sky Offensive MVP. McCoy was also named Big Sky Tournament MVP, and earned the conference’s Golden Boot award for leading the league in goals. As an assistant from 2004-06, Dedini oversaw the team’s ascension into the top of the Big Sky standings. During the fall of 2006, the women’s program 9 reached the Big Sky Tournament championship game for the first time in program history. The team’s 10-7-4 record was also a then program-best until the 2007 team bettered that win total. In 2006, a highly-touted recruiting class made major contributions during the year. The program’s 30 goals during the season were fueled by Dedini’s aggressive offensive approach and the ability of the newcomers to contribute immediately. Sacramento State outshot its opponents 172-106. Dedini first started as the goalkeepers coach for the Hornets in 2004. During that year, freshman keeper Brittany Auernig was named rookie of the year after making eight starts and 59 saves. Dedini made the move to top assistant in 2005. The Hornets’ improved recruiting efforts and change in philosophy paid off with a then program-best second place finish in the conference standings and an 8-8-3 overall record. The team also advanced to the Big Sky Tournament for the first time since 2001. In his own playing career, Dedini competed at American River JC before transferring to Sonoma State. Dedini had two standout seasons for the Seawolves as the starting goalkeeper and graduated with a degree in kinesiology. A second team All-American in 1993, Dedini posted a schoolrecord 13 shutouts that season, leading Sonoma State to a 17-3-2 record. He currently ranks second in school history with 21 shutouts and his career goals-against-average of 0.75 is by far the best in school history. The Seawolves inducted Dedini into the Sonoma State Athletics Hall of Fame in 2008 and he is widely regarded as the best keeper in school history. After graduation, Dedini played in Major League Soccer for the Colorado Rapids and the Kansas City Wizards (now Sporting KC). After his MLS career, Dedini spent five years playing with the Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the A-League (now United Soccer Leage), earning honors such as team MVP, Iron Man and the century award for breaking the 100-cap mark. In all, Dedini played professional soccer for 11 seasons. While playing for the Riverhounds, Dedini served as the assistant coach for the men’s varsity soccer team at Quaker Valley High School in Pittsburgh, Pa., helping the squad to the 2002 state championship. Dedini is a Northern California native, having graduated from Vacaville High School in 1988. He and his wife, Katie, have two daughters, Jordyn and Jaycie, and one son, Jake.

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. Top: The Sacramento Kings play at Sleep Train Arena, just 15 minutes from campus. Above: The Sacramento River Cats - the Triple-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics - play games at Raley Field.
