2010 Missouri State Season Outlook

Volleyball Bears Think 2010 Could Be A Special Season Talent, versatility and high expectations best characterize the 2010 Missouri State volleyball team and are three of the things that have head coach Melissa Stokes grinning with anticipation about this year’s squad perhaps more than any other entering her 15th season at MSU. “I’m really excited and definitely think we’re worthy of being picked where we were (second in the Missouri Valley Conference preseason poll),” Stokes said with a smile. “I’m excited about the schedule, we’re deep at every position, which makes for great competition in practice, and this could be a special year.” Stokes’ excitement comes with good reason as the Bears return a trio of first-team all-MVC players from 2009 to go with several talented veterans and one of the most heralded recruiting classes in recent memory at MSU. When asked what the Bears would be best at in 2010, Stokes paused before saying, “When we’re healthy, we’ll have options and be good at everything. We’ll be physical at the net with good blocking and have good floor defense with what the setters bring.”

The Hitters

A first glimpse of the Bears’ versatility comes when looking at who will fill the void at outside hitter left by the departures of Addie Foley and Sara Staubach. Megan Bess (Jr., Farmington, Mo.) and Christine McCartney (Fr., Arlington, Texas) are the truest outside hitters on the roster, while two-time first-team all-MVC performer Calli Norman (Jr., St. Charles, Mo.) will likely slide over from the middle. Bess was a part-time starter in 2009, showing glimpses of excellence including an 18-kill performance against Stephen F. Austin, averaging 2.11 kills per set on .154 hitting last year. McCartney is an explosive athlete and a player the coaching staff has high hopes for in 2010. The Lone Star state native brings great leaping ability to the floor and has the skills to be a six-rotation player. Norman’s .364 hitting percentage in 2009 ranked as the second highest total in school history and helped earn her AVCA all-region honors. The powerful hitter’s skills will easily translate from the middle, where she spent her first two seasons, to the outside. 2

Cara Hackmann (Sr., Washington, Mo.) epitomizes MSU’s versatility as another option on the outside. The reigning MVC Defensive Player and Libero of the Year could help the Bears as an outside hitter this season. Hackmann has played only four matches at the position in her career, but three of those earned her MVC Tournament MVP honors her sophomore season as the Bears won the event. Opposite the outside hitters is yet another returning allconference player in Kelley Michnowicz (Jr., Belleville, Ill.). In line to be a third-year starter, Michnowicz hit .311 with averages of 2.25 kills, 0.98 digs and 0.98 blocks as a sophomore, and enters her junior season ranked eighth in Missouri State history with a Calli Norman is a two-time first-team all-MVC selection .281 career attack efficiency.

as Oklahoma, Saint Louis and Utah join the Bears at Hammons. “This is the best, toughest home schedule we’ve ever had,” Stokes said. “It’s set up for us to earn some significant wins, as well as get prepared for the conference season.” Missouri State rounds out its nonconference schedule Sept. 28 at SIU Edwardsville. The Missouri Valley Conference schedule will be rigorous as always, with the 18-match home-and-home format still in place. “I think the top five or six teams will be extremely competitive,” Stokes said of the league this year. The MVC returns 10 of the 13 first-team all-conference players from 2009, including eight from the top three preseason picks in UNI, Missouri State and Wichita State. Those three will give The Valley a legitimate shot at sending three teams to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2007, while the majority of the remaining clubs will present a challenge for the rest of the schedule.

setter at an international tournament in Puerto Rico after helping the U.S. to a title in 2009. Thomas has the skill set to attack and play six rotations, something that could make the Bears even more dangerous as the year goes on.

Deep Defense

Returning the national libero of the year to the defense is certainly a good thing, but having the depth to entertain the idea of moving her to another position might be even better, and that’s a real possibility for the Bears this year. Hackmann excelled at libero last season, setting school records with 671 total digs and 5.74 per set, but the Bears have a number of young players that can also play libero. Abby Padlock (So., Kenosha, Wis.) and Shelby Strang (So., Champaign, Ill.) have the most experience after seeing significant playing time in 2010. Padlock played in 30 matches to average 1.94 digs per set as a rookie, and Strang saw time in all 31 contests and averaged 2.10 digs. Christina (Buckner) Freeman (Jr., Springfield, Mo.) is another talent who played in 76 sets as a freshman in 2008 before injury cut her sophomore year to four matches. Redshirt freshman Ashley Mason (Fr., Granby, Mo.) is another player who could step in and contribute after a decorated prep career, and Tiffany Moe (Jr., Raytown, Mo.) enters her third year in the program in the defensive mix as well.

Missouri State Vice Presidents & Faculty Representative

COFeR President First Year at Missouri State

46

Dr. James E. Cofer, Sr., began his first year as president of Missouri State University on August 2. He was introduced to the campus and Springfield community as the school’s 10th president on May 14, following a nationwide search. Cofer came to Springfield after serving as president of the University of Louisiana at Monroe since 2002. He replaced Dr. Michael T. Nietzel, who had been MSU’s president since July 2005. Additionally, Cofer will be a tenured professor in MSU’s College of Business Administration. “I am deeply honored by the Board’s decision and its confidence in me,” Cofer said on May 14. “I have been a fan of Missouri State University for many years and I look forward to continuing the good work that has been done here. Working with the faculty, staff, students, community, governmental leaders and all other constituent groups, I think we can create and achieve a shared vision for the university.” Cofer earned a reputation as the leader of an “extraordinary renaissance” at the University of Louisiana at Monroe over his eight years as president. When he and his wife, Deborah, arrived at ULM in 2002, they immediately began the “Reclaiming Our Campus” campaign, which involved more than 2,000 students, faculty, staff, community leaders, and area citizens who cleaned, planted flowers and repainted the campus. Shortly thereafter, Cofer developed an ambitious visionary plan that included more than $80 million in new construction and renovations on campus. Students, whose academic achievements continue to proliferate every year, now enjoy the newest, up-to-date residence halls, state-of-the-art “smart classrooms,” a completely-renovated Student Union Building and multiple campus security improvements. In 2007, students rated ULM higher than ever before – breaking a record for student satisfaction at the institution and surpassing student satisfaction at the national level. With the help of engaged faculty, ULM also patterned its mathematics and English course redesigns after the National Center for Academic Transformation’s Roadmap to Redesign philosophy, utilizing sound methodology, student-centered learning, clear assessment criteria and effective technology incorporation in 2007. To further encourage student success, ULM implemented living-learning communities, peer and faculty mentoring programs, extensive undergraduate research initiatives and advanced technological modalities. Cognizant of adult learners and today’s busy student, Cofer advocated “anytime, anywhere, anyplace instruction,” resulting in additional online courses and degree programs at ULM. Cofer earned his Ed.D. in Higher Education Administration from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in December 1998. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in 1971 and his MBA in 1975, both from Mississippi State University. Prior to becoming president of the University of Louisiana at Monroe in March of 2002, Cofer served as vice president for finance and administration for the University of Missouri System from 1998-2002. Prior to that, he was vice president for finance and administration for the University of Arkansas System from 1995-98; Eisenhower Fellow in Budapest, Hungary, in 1995-96; and vice chancellor for fiscal affairs and treasurer of the Board of Regents for the University System of Georgia from 1991-95. He also has held positions in finance and administration with the Mississippi Power and Light Company; Murray State University; the State of Mississippi; and the Mississippi Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning. Cofer and his wife, Deborah, have two children and two grandchildren. Missouri State University

Moats oversaw the Louisville band and spirit squads as the liaison with student government and student spirit groups.   Prior to joining the Louisville staff, Moats served as senior associate athletic director for two years at Marquette University, where oversaw the Golden Eagles’ Blue and Gold Fund, media relations, ticket operations, special events, licensing, radio, television, marketing and promotions and sponsorships with NSM.   He also worked 14 years in the University of Kentucky athletics department, including his last three there as associate athletics director for marketing (2000-02).   Moats joined the UK staff as a graduate assistant in the athletics office in 1989, and in 1991 was promoted to coordinator of promotions and special events. He became the Wildcats’ director of marketing, promotions and licensing in 1993 before being named assistant athletics director for marketing in 1996. He served as tournament manager for the 1993 NCAA Golf Championships and the 1996 and 1998 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament events in Lexington.   A native of Dixon, Ill., Moats is a 1988 graduate of Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville with a bachelor’s degree in physical education. While at SIUE, Moats was a three-year letterwinner in golf and was a student assistant basketball coach for the Cougars from 1985-1988. He earned a master’s degree in sports management from the University of Kentucky in 2001.   Moats and his wife, Leeann, have two children, Kirk and Lauren. Bears Volleyball

Missouri Valley Conference The Missouri Valley Conference enters its 104th year at the start of the 2010-11 academic year, and the nation’s second-oldest NCAA Division I conference continues to be a leader in college athletics. The Missouri Valley Conference enters a new decade facing a rapidly changing environment in NCAA Division I athletics as conference expansion and realignment swept the nation in the summer of 2010. Although The Valley was untouched, the league will remain vigilant in monitoring changes or potential changes in other conferences that might impact membership, or present opportunities for expansion. Men’s basketball continues to be the engine that drives Valley athletic programs. With UNI’s NCAA Sweet 16 appearance in 2010, the league has had four different Sweet 16 teams since 2006, and The Valley is the only non-BCS league with more than two different Sweet 16 teams in that span. Notably, the run of nine straight seasons with two or more teams in the NCAAs ended in 2007, as the past three seasons have seen only the tournament champion included in the NCAA field. While the success of men’s basketball has received the greatest attention, the overall performance of league teams in virtually every sport continues to raise the national profile of the conference. In volleyball, for the sixth time in league history, two MVC teams were invited to dance in the 2009 NCAA Volleyball Championship – UNI and Wichita State. With first-round wins over Washington State and Saint Louis, respectively, it marked just the second time in MVC history that two teams advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament in the same season (2006 – Missouri State and Bradley UNI). Peoria, Illinois Based in St. Louis since 1985, the league is assertive in its approach to hosting NCAA basketball championship events, operating Creighton a revenue-producing in-house television network, bidding out the Omaha, Nebraska right to host sport championships and landing title sponsorships for Drake those events. Des Moines, Iowa During the tenure of Doug Elgin, The Valley’s ninth and longesttenured commissioner, The Valley has been aggressive in hosting Evansville NCAA events in St. Louis. Since 1998, the MVC served as host for Evansville, Indiana a staggering nine NCAA tournament events in the 13-year period, which has made St. Louis one of the most frequent stops on the NCAA Illinois State Tournament trail. The Valley hosted Women’s Final Fours in 2001 Normal, Illinois and 2009, and the Men’s Final Four in 2005. And while the Missouri Valley Conference has been progressive Indiana State in pursuing NCAA events, it has continued to be a national leader in Terre Haute, Indiana the athletic arena. And starting in 1995-96, the conference broke Missouri State new ground by allowing league members to bid for hosting rights for Springfield, Missouri select team sport championships. By establishing uniform host criteria, the conference is able to assist a host institution in a seasonUNI long promotional campaign and provide an avenue where hosts can Cedar Falls, Iowa acquire sponsors and achieve a profit for the event. The 2003-04 season was a landmark season for the conference Southern Illinois as State Farm Insurance and the league came to terms on an agreement Carbondale, Illinois that provides State Farm with title sponsorship of all of the league’s 18 championships. That agreement was enhanced for the 2007-08 Wichita State season. The conference’s progressive marketing and in-house Wichita, Kansas television package has helped open doors to regional and national sponsors outside of the realm of title sponsorships, as the league’s men’s basketball tournament sponsorship revenues continues to reach all-time highs. Meanwhile, the league has been progressive in other areas, as it has taken its merchandise program in-house, while offering e-commerce solutions for league apparel, championship photography and a conference-wide videostreaming package. The seeds for this vision were planted by eight administrators representing five institutions, who met at the Midland Hotel in Kansas City, Mo., on Jan. 12, 1907. The five schools which formed the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association were Washington University of St. Louis, and the state universities of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. Two months after the initial meeting, two more schools -- Drake University and Iowa State College -- were admitted. In the fall of 1907, basketball became the first competitive sport. Today, the Missouri Valley Conference sponsors the following sports: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country and track & field (indoor and outdoor), men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, women’s swimming and diving, men’s and women’s tennis, and women’s volleyball. From its early beginning to its current standing on the map of college athletics, The Valley will always continue to be proactive in its approach. League members include Bradley, Creighton, Drake, Evansville, Illinois State, Indiana State, Missouri State, Northern Iowa, Southern Illinois, and Wichita State. Eastern Illinois is an affiliate member in men’s soccer, while Central Arkansas and Southern Illinois-Edwardsville begin affiliate men’s soccer membership in 2010.

John Q. Hammons Student Center   The Missouri State Bear volleyball team plays its home matches in spacious John Q. Hammons Student Center, the home of Missouri State volleyball since the start of the 1976-77 school year.   The largest indoor facility in southwest Missouri, Hammons has a main arena seating capacity of 8,846. There are 4,646 permanent seats and folding bleacher units on the north and south ends each seat 2,100 fans.   Hammons Student Center was constructed at a cost of $5.5 million and was named for Springfield business executive and former Missouri State student John Q. Hammons, who donated a gift of one million dollars to the project.   The facility grew out of a lengthy project begun by Missouri State students in the early 1970s, with actual construction beginning in January of 1975. The structure, completed in the late summer of 1976, is located on the northwest edge of the Missouri State campus. The land for the building was made available to the University in 1972 by the Springfield Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority.   An additional $326,000 of the total cost came in a grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development for the facility’s eight-lane swimming pool. Parking is located south of the building.   The court in the main arena, two more full-size courts in the east and west gyms under the side seats, and two smaller courts under the bleacher units on the north and south ends are marked for basketball, volleyball and tennis. In 1985, Missouri State acquired a hardwood floor, which is laid over the permanent floor for volleyball and basketball competition.   The office space in women’s athletics was doubled in the fall of 1993, and the volleyball locker room was remodeled following the 2005 season, thanks to lead gifts by Chip McGeehan of Marshfield. Several others

have made significant gifts to benefit the locker room projects, including Jim and Joan Cologna.   The Missouri State volleyball and softball teams had shared a locker room since the opening of Hammons Student Center in 1976 and each now has its own space with the completion of the two projects. The new locker rooms each include 20 wooden lockers, a team meeting area, a trophy case, sinks, toilets and individual showers.   The Colognas are longtime supporters of Missouri State volleyball and pledged a significant gift toward the volleyball locker room.

The lounge area and trophy case in the MSU volleyball locker room, which was remodeled in 2005 thanks to lead gifts by Chip McGeehan of Marshfield. The trophy case is named in honor of Jim and Joan Cologna for their gift benefitting the locker room project.

The Jim D. Morris Family Strength and Conditioning Center sits adjacent to the Turner Family Practice Court gives the Bears a dedicated cardiovascular and weight facility inside Hammons Student Center.

Wooden lockers in the volleyball locker room were introduced after the remodel in 2005.

The Turner Family Practice Court was completed in 2006, helping ease the practice schedule of the volleyball Bears and both basketball programs. The east gym underwent extensive renovations, including the installation of new lighting, wall covering, and the addition of the hardwood floor that was in use in HSC’s main arena uuu from 1985 until February 2006.

2009 Missouri State Season Review

Bears hit 20 wins for 11th straight year Missouri State narrowly misses fifth consecutive NCAA Tournament

One win away. While it’s impossible to say for sure whether the 2009 Missouri State volleyball Bears would have earned a fifth consecutive NCAA Tournament berth with one more win, it is easy to point a handful of losses throughout the season that could have made the difference, including the five-set defeat to Wichita State in the MVC Tournament that ended the season uncharacteristically early for a program that had become accustomed to playing into December for much of the decade. In all, Missouri State’s 21-10 overall record and second-place Missouri Valley Conference finish with a 14-4 league mark will be remembered as a successful year despite ultimately falling short of the program’s lofty expectations.

On the Bubble The Bears were the epitome of a bubble team following the regular season, sitting at 51st in the RPI before an MVC Tournament loss to Wichita State. While Missouri State made it in the field in 2006 and 2007 with similar computer ratings, the Bears were denied a fifth consecutive NCAA Tournament trip when the bracket came out. In all, two teams rated lower than the Bears made it in - Washington State at 53rd and Clemson at 57th - while three teams above MSU were also left out, including Pittsburgh (44th), North Dakota State (45th) and Furman (48th).

Washington and 13th-ranked Oregon sandwiched around a five-set win over San Francisco, but responded to win six in a row after that for a 7-2 start to 2009. MSU got healthy against the field in the Dr. Mary Jo Wynn Invitational at Hammons Student Center, dropping just two sets on the way to wins against UC Davis, Memphis, Mississippi State and Stephen F. Austin. Calli Norman and Cara Hackmann shared tournament MVP honors, and Megan Bess put away a season best 18 kills in the finale over SFA. The Bears carried that momentum into Ohio University’s tournament the next week, beating Eastern Kentucky and Delaware on the first day in Athens, the second win giving Melissa Stokes her 300th victory at Missouri State. Up next came one of the costly losses of the season, a five-set defeat at the hands of Indiana in which the Bears failed to capitalize on match point opportunities in both the fourth and fifth sets and dropping the last three points of the match after holding a 15-14 fifth-set lead. The exhausted Bears fell 3-1 the next day to an Ohio team bound for the NCAA Tournament, sending their record to 7-4 heading into MVC play the next week at home against Illinois State and Indiana State.

Bears Get Hot in League Action Missouri State dispatched the Redbirds and Sycamores easily during the first weekend of league play and then scored Ups and Downs in Non-Conference Play an upset of No. 20 Wichita State the next The Bears started slowly in the seaweek, using a five-set win to end the son’s opening tournament, going 1-2 at Shockers’ streak of 38 consecutive MVC the Oregon Classic with losses to Eastern road wins. The wins continued to pile up with road sweeps of Drake and Creighton the next week and a home sweep of Southern Illinois before an epic five-set win over Evansville on Oct. 10. The Bears and Aces traded set victories throughout the match, and Cara Hackmann stole the show with an MVC record 46 digs that stood as the highest single-match total in the NCAA in 2009. A perfect 8-0 league start was completed with an Oct. 16 win Cara Hackmann set school records for total digs and dig average in 2009 at Bradley, setting up a show62

down with the league’s other 8-0 squad, UNI, the next night in Cedar Falls. The Panthers prevailed in four sets on their way to an 18-0 regular season and conference tournament title. That setback started a mini-slide that included a 3-0 loss at Wichita State on Oct. 23 and a five-set defeat at IPFW two days later in a non-conference match. The IPFW contest was another “whatif?” match that could be looked to at the end of the year, as the Bears fought off two IPFW match points for a 14-14 tie in the fifth set, only to watch the Mastodons record two kills to land the upset. Wins over Creighton, Drake and Evansville followed and moved the Bears’ record to 18-7 overall and 11-2 in the league entering their Nov. 7 match at Southern Illinois, a team MSU had easily swept in the season’s first meeting. The Salukis presented much more of a challenge this time around, handing the Bears yet another five-set loss they wished they could have back. After thumping the Salukis 25-14 in the fourth set to tie the match, Missouri State never led in the deciding set on the way to a 1511 loss. The Bears lost their next match to UNI at home on Nov. 13 to drop to third in the league race, and spent the next night sweeping Bradley and rooting for the Panthers to win at Wichita State. UNI came through to send the Shockers back into a tie with the Bears with one week to play.

missouristatebears.com

Missouri State held the tie-break over WSU by virtue of sweeping Creighton and the Shockers losing to the Bluejays once, and needed to at least match WSU’s results of the final weekend to earn the No. 2 seed in the MVC Tournament. The Bears took care of business by winning at Indiana State and Illinois State, forcing the Shockers to play in the MVC Tournament first round and giving the Bears a bye into the semifinals. Wichita got past SIU in its first match, setting up another heartbreaking defeat for the Bears in the semis. As is usually the case when Missouri State and the Shockers get together, the match went five sets with WSU prevailing 15-12 in the fifth. The Bears fell behind early and fought back to an 11-11 tie, but could not get over the hump in yet another stomachchurning five-set defeat. The uncertainty about an NCAA atlarge bid was confirmed two days later, ending early a season that was so close to being yet another postseason trip for the Bears.

Adjustments to the Record Book Cara Hackmann played libero for the first time in her career in the season opener and immediately began an assault on the record book that would end with her holding school records for digs in a season (671) and dig average in a season (5.74 per set). Additionally, those exceptional numbers moved her into the career lead for dig average at 3.95 per set and into third place in career digs with 1,454, a mere 129 shy of the MSU mark. Calli Norman, meanwhile, spent the season at the net attacking with remarkable efficiency, hitting .364 for the year to finish behind Linette White’s senior campaign for the second-best figure at Missouri State. She also jumped to third in school history with a .317 hitting percentage through two seasons and was joined by Kelley Michnowicz on that list, who finished her sophomore season with a .281 career attack efficiency to ranked eighth. Sara Staubach concluded her career ranked 14th in MSU history with 1,036 kills and eighth with 3,219 attacks. Plenty of Awards to go Around There was no shortage of individual awards handed out to the volleyball Bears in 2009, with Hackmann hauling in the biggest loot. A first-team all-MVC pick, Hackmann was the league’s Defensive Player and Libero of the Year, the CVU. com National Libero of the Year, a fourtime MVC Defensive Player of the Week, and the MVC Player of the Week and

Missouri State 20-20 Club (20 Kills-Digs in a Match)

There have been 27 times that an Missouri State player has recorded 20 kills and 20 digs in a match, and 13 Bears have accounted for the 20-20s. Michelle Witzke had three 20-20s in 1997 to raise her career total to seven, a Missouri State record.

Missouri State Triple-20 Club (20 Kills-Assists-Digs in a Match)   Only three Bear volleyball players have accomplished the triple-20 of 20 or more kills, assists and digs in a match. Missouri State has not had a triple-20 since 1989, mainly because in recent years the Bears have used a 5-1 offense in which the setter does not hit as much as in a 6-2 (twosetter) offense, used more frequently by Missouri State in the 1980s.   Two players – Ruch and Bingham – each posted triple20s against Arkansas State on October 7, 1989, but no Bear foe has ever achieved the rare feat.
