THE BIG SKY CONFERENCE

The Big Sky Conference enters its 49th year of athletic competition in 2011-12. The Big Sky is an NCAA Division I member in all sports, with member institutions classified in the Football Championship Subdivision (formally I-AA). For the sixth straight year, the Big Sky is a nine-team league. But that will change for the 2012-13 season, as Cal Poly and UC Davis join the conference for football only while North Dakota and Southern Utah join in all sports. The current lineup includes Eastern Washington, Idaho State, Montana, Montana State, Northern Arizona, Northern Colorado, Portland State, Sacramento State and Weber State. Northern Colorado is the newest member of the league, having joined the conference in 2006.

The Big Sky Conference was established in 1963 by six charter members – 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 at the same time 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 Conference spreads across eight 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 and Colorado. Of the eight western-most states in the contiguous United States only one, Nevada, is not represented in the Big Sky Conference.

RANDY DEDINI FIFTH SEASON AS HEAD COACH SONOMA STATE, 1993 • CAREER RECORD: 38-27-13 (14-8-6 BIG SKY)

Randy Dedini, the 2010 Big Sky Conference Coach of the Year, capped off his fourth season at the helm of the Sacramento State program with another conference championship. Dedini led the Hornets to a 1-0 victory over No. 1 seed and host Northern Arizona in the 2010 Big Sky Conference Tournament championship game to clinch his second league title in four seasons. With a career record of 38-27-13, Dedini has had at least nine wins in each of his four seasons on the sidelines and has coached 19 first- or second-team all-Big Sky selections, including offensive player of the year Katie McCoy in 2007, and Big Sky Tournament MVP Elece McBride in 2010. 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 after leading the Hornets with 10 goals, propelling herself to No. 5 all-time in school history with 17 career scores. 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. Goalkeeper Savannah 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, Kim 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 leading scorer. 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 2007 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 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 of play 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. Dedini played collegiately 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-America in 1993, Dedini posted a school-record 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 University Athletics Hall of Fame in 2008 and 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, graduating from Vacaville High School in 1988. He and his wife, Katie, have two daughters, Jordyn and Jaycie, and one son, Jake.

ADMINISTRATION UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT Dr. Alexander Gonzalez Dr. Alexander Gonzalez has served more than three decades as a professor and education leader, including serving as president of California State University, Sacramento, since 2003. As the first person in his family to graduate from college, Dr. Gonzalez has devoted his career to ensuring greater opportunities for students. Dr. Gonzalez enlisted in the U.S. Air Force at age 17, served four years and then used the G.I. Bill to graduate from Pomona College. He graduated with honors and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He later earned a master’s degree in psychology and doctorate from the University of California, Santa Cruz, before serving as a postdoctoral research fellow at Stanford University. His experience includes six years as president of California State University, San Marcos, and 18 years at Fresno State, where he was the university’s provost and vice president for academic affairs. His commitment to the California State University system includes serving on a work group that reviewed and recommended corrective action on remedial education, and, more recently, as a member of a committee of presidents considering policy on enrollment management, the CSU’s Technology Steering Committee, and the Institute for Teaching and Learning. Dr. Gonzalez is Sacramento State’s 11th president.

ATHLETICS DIRECTOR Dr. Terry Wanless Dr. Terry Wanless’ nine-year tenure as Sacramento State’s Director of Athletics has seen growth unparalleled in the school’s 20-year Division I history. His vision of broad success in the department has come to fruition over the last five years as the Hornets have combined to win 34 conference championships. That includes an unprecedented eight conference titles during the 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2010-11 academic years. In addition, the program claimed the 2010-11 Big Sky Conference All-Sports Points Title. This past year, the program finished 119th out of 345 schools in the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup standings, the highest ranked team in the Big Sky Conference. The 2008-09 West Region Athletic Director of the Year for the Football Championship Subdivision, Wanless has overseen significant facility enhancement to the athletic facilities. The biggest change came during the spring of 2008 with the opening of the Broad Fieldhouse, which serves as the home to Hornets football and track and field, as well as athletic training and strength and conditioning. Wanless has served on numerous NCAA committees, and recently completed a term as a member of the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision selection committee.

STUDENT-ATHLETE RESOURCE CENTER The Student-Athlete Resource Center was created in March 2006 in an effort to combine three very important Student Affairs’ programs that provide valuable services to Hornet student-athletes, coaches, and staff. The programs of Athletic Academic Services, Life Skills and Student-Athlete Development, and NCAA Compliance and Financial Services combine to provide student-athletes with the support to develop as independent and successful

young adults and the skills to achieve their academic goals, to persist towards graduation, and to meet all NCAA eligibility requirements. The SARC staff helps student-athletes navigate through many of the campus’ academic procedures and policies, understand NCAA rules compliance and eligibility requirements, and provide services that place student welfare and the development of the whole student as a top priority.

GET TO KNOW SACRAMENTO

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 California Senate chamber seats its 40 members in a large chamber room decorated in red, which is a reference to the British House of Lords, also the upper house of a bicameral legislature. 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.

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 and 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 Folsom.

OLD SACRAMENTO 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.

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.

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

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. The area 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 football to soccer. The highlight of that group is the Sacramento Kings. The local NBA franchise features players such as Tyreke Evans, DeMarcus Cousins and Jimmer Fredette. The Kings play at Power Balance Pavilion in Natomas, a neighborhood north of downtown Sacramento. The Sacramento River Cats - the AAA affiliate of the Oakland A’s - play home games from April through early September at Raley Field in West Sacramento. The local professional sports scene also features the United Football League’s Sacramento Mountain Lions, which play their home games on campus at Hornet Stadium, and the Sacramento Gold FC soccer club. The Folsom Rodeo is a popular event each summer, as well as the Tour of California bike race and many golf tournaments.

SACRAMENTO INTERNATIONAL Unlike many universities around the country, Sacramento State is just 15 minutes away from an international airport. Student-athletes benefit with easy travel schedules to road games. Sacramento International Airport (SMF), Northern California’s gateway to the world, is served by 12 airlines offering nonstop and direct flights to cities throughout North America. On October 6, 2012, SMF will open Central Terminal B, a new, state-of-the art terminal and concourse featuring an exciting mix of local and national retail and restaurant brands. Aeromexico, Alaska, American, Frontier, Hawaiian, Horizon, Jet Blue and Southwest will serve passengers from Central Terminal B. Continental, Delta, United and US Airways will serve Passengers from Terminal A. Please see www.smf.aero for more information about the airport or follow them on Twitter and Facebook (SacIntlAirport).

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION The Sacramento Regional Transit District operates 64 bus routes and 37.5 miles of light rail 365 days a year using 76 light rail vehicles, 182 buses and 11 shuttle vans. Buses operate daily from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. every 15 to 75 minutes, depending on the route. Light rail trains begin operation at 4 a.m. Blue Line and Gold Line trains operate until 10:30 p.m. The Gold Line’s University/65th station is just two blocks away from the Sacramento State campus. Students receive a free ride pass. The Hornet Express Shuttle bus also runs from the 65th street station and other locations near campus. During the school year, the Hornet Night Shuttle provides free taxi service backand-forth from campus. An Amtrak rail line also runs into downtown Sacramento, with the station serving the California Zephyr Line, the Coast Starlight Line, the San Joaquin Line, and the Capitol Corridor Line.
