2014 Missouri State Season Outlook

Relentless Pursuit of a Dream Missouri State looks to replicate the big offensive numbers from 2013 while returning to prominence among the league’s elite.

M

issouri State softball coach Holly Hesse enters her 26th season at the helm. In 2013, Hesse became the second winningest coach in Valley history and enters this season with 646 wins at MSU. The Bears have three all-conference selections from last year returning, led by second baseman Ashley Brentz, who became the first MSU player to repeat as a first teamer in a decade. Heather Duckworth and Mary Stephens were secondteam All-MVC picks last year. Last season, Missouri State put up some of the best offensive numbers in school history. The team batting average of .284, the 396 hits, 227 runs scored and 28 home runs all were top5 single season stats. This year, the Bears look to replace four starting seniors in the lineup and solidify the pitching staff. Missouri State has six seniors on the 2014 squad including Brentz, Duckworth, Stacia Boeckstiegel and Kerri Cunningham, all expected to be starters. The Bears have five freshmen joining the team that will provide depth and can contribute right away. One of the key intangibles this year could be new volunteer assistant coach Courtney Conley. Conley was a four-year starter at third base for Alabama where she led the Tide to a National Championship in 2012.

THE PITCHING STAFF Missouri State enters the 2014 season with four pitchers on the staff. Junior Chelsea Jones was a workhorse for the Bears in 2013 logging 231.2 innings, tied for the sixth-most innings pitched in a season in school history. Jones won 15 games, tied for fourth among league hurlers, and improved her earned run average and opponent’s batting average while continuing to strike out more hitters than walks given up. She topped the MVC in ground ball outs, inducing 338, all while fielding her position perfectly. Jones enters this season as the staff leader. Sophomore Jessie Van Es was limited to 16 appearances last season, but logged at least one strikeout in 13 of those games. She began the MVC slate 3-0 and went 4-2 over her final six decisions of the year. The staff leader in strikeoutto-walk ratio, Van Es will be looked upon to log more innings after a season of experience in 2013. Freshman Erin Struemph has been impressive since arriving on campus. She was a four-year standout in the circle in high school and led her Saint Elizabeth High squad to a state title in 2011 at Killian Stadium. Struemph will step right in and be relied upon to provide quality innings in her first season. Senior Rachel Brisker has been hampered by injuries and will look to return to the circle

in her final season with the Bears. Last year, Brisker earned a win and picked up the save in a doubleheader sweep at Indiana State. “Chelsea certainly has the experience to step it up and be dominating this year,” said Hesse. “She will have a lot of help from Van Es, who threw some good innings as a freshman. I am very excited about Erin Struemph from what she has shown us and the more experience she gets, the more dominating she’s going to become.” BEHIND THE PLATE Senior Stacia Boeckstiegel is a vocal leader at catcher and has the experience to lead the pitching staff. She had a great season at the plate in 2013, tying the school record being hit-bypitch 10 times, while hitting four home runs. She batted .320 on the year, a 95-point increase over her first season at MSU. Boeckstiegel was an allaround offensive contributor, even picking up a stolen base. She came through in the clutch as well, hitting a home run in the MVC Tournament to earn a spot on the all-tournament team. Sophomore Braxton Coil was a solid back up and had a stellar season at the plate in her first year with the Bears. She hit .360 and had a .448 onbase percentage, both team highs. Coil dropped seven sacrifice bunts and topped the squad with a .684 success rate at advancing runners. Coil hit a

home run in her only pinch hit at-bat, a two-run shot at Drake on March 30. “This is Boeckstiegel’s third year with us and she has gotten better and better each year behind the plate,” continued Hesse. “She is a strong, vocal leader who had a great year at the plate. Braxton (Coil) hit extremely well for us last year. Catching is one position where you want more than one starter and I see both of them playing a lot of innings behind the plate.” THE INFIELD The Bears have a pair of seniors, both returning all-conference selections, likely to start on the infield in 2014. Their experience will be vital with the loss of graduating seniors at shortstop and first base. Second baseman Ashley Brentz has been a first-team All-MVC honoree each of the last two seasons. Her ability to contribute in any way possible is uncanny on this squad. She hit .295 with 17 walks, four sac flies, eight sacrifice bunts and advanced 23 runners providing valuable outs. Brentz topped the Bears last season with a ninegame hitting streak from March 16-29. Freshman Olivia Roark is a speedy option that provides depth at second. Third baseman Heather Duckworth picked up her first league honor in 2013 with a secondteam selection. The likely starter at the hot corner, she hit .292 with three home runs and 23 RBI. Duckworth had a career day at Illinois State on April 6, driving in four runs, one of seven multi-RBI games in 2013. MSU looks to a pair of sophomores to fill playing time at first base. Mary Stephens, who is also frequently the designated player, was an allconference second teamer as a freshman. She hit .309 and led the Bears with 19 hits with runners

in scoring position. Bethany Sullinger will move to first base and can back up at third base when needed. Her first career hit was a home run in a win over Toledo. Shortstop will be one of the most intriguing positions to watch. Following the graduation of Kirstin Cutter, redshirt sophomore Erin Duewel and freshman Elena Gambill will battle for playing time. Duewel looks healthy after a season-ending injury last year. Gambill brings a strong resume to the Bears after hitting .450 as a senior, the best average on her team. “We have a lot of good options,” said associate head coach Sue Frederick. “Mary is very instinctive and has great game sense. Bethany moves over there from third base and brings a competitive spirit and desire to make a difference on the field. At shortstop, it comes down to who can provide consistency, make big plays for us and add punch to our lineup offensively. Brentz is going to solidify the right side of the infield with her reliable play. She has been a steady force for two solid seasons. Olivia is a viable backup at that position. Duckworth is going to have a great finish to her career and be our rock at third base.” THE OUTFIELD The Bears have a plethora of options in the outfield. One of the keys will be senior centerfielder Kerri Cunningham. The speedy lefty hitter will likely resume the role of leadoff hitter. Cunningham led MSU with three triples in 2013 and set career highs with 32 hits, 20 runs scored and seven RBI. The loss of seniors at the corner outfield positions opens up opportunities for a number of players to step up. Juniors Rebecca McPherson and Ali Trickey will vie for starts in left field with freshman

Madison Jones pushing for playing time. Pitcher Chelsea Jones could play right field when not in the circle. Suzanne Allen, Ciara Flau and newcomer Allie Alvstad will also compete for the right field spot. “There is a lot of good competition going on in the outfield,” stated Hesse. “We definitely see Kerri as the starter in center. She has great aggressiveness, a lot of speed and a strong arm. A lot will depend on who is hitting the ball.” THE SCHEDULE The Bears will begin the season with the first 23 games away from Killian Stadium. The 56-game schedule features at least nine matchups with NCAA Tournament teams from 2013. “It is a good mix of challenging opponents along with some winnable games,” said Hesse. “We will definitely be challenged by teams like Minnesota, Oklahoma State and others. But we have the opportunity to get off to a really good start in the first month of the season.” THE VALLEY RACE Missouri State was picked to finish fifth in the 2014 Missouri Valley Conference coaches’ preseason poll announced on January 22. Defending tournament champion UNI was a unanimous favorite with Illinois State, Drake and Southern Illinois slotted ahead of the Bears. New league foe Loyola was predicted to finish sixth. Mary Stephens was the only Bear named to the preseason All-MVC team. She was the only underclassman on the squad. Following the regular season, this year’s MVC Softball Championship will be held in Normal, Ill. The Bears have the most wins of any program with 68 tournament victories.

H

ead coach Holly Hesse enters her 26th season leading the Bears’ program as the second-winningest coach in Missouri Valley Conference history with 646 victories. Hesse joined the 600-victory club with the Bears’ season-opening 7-2 win over Sam Houston State at the Fairfield Inn and Suites Classic in Denton, Texas, on February 17, 2012. Hesse is the winningest coach in Missouri State history with a 646-639-2 record. Her tenure includes two regular-season MVC titles, five MVC tournament crowns and five NCAA Tournament appearances. Hesse recorded her 300th win in 2000, her 400th win in 2004 and win number 500 in 2007. Missouri State leads all schools with 68 wins in the MVC Tournament and Hesse is tied for the most MVC Tournament wins with 46. Senior second baseman Ashley Brentz returns after she earned consecutive AllMVC first team honors in 2012 and 2013 under Hesse’s direction and the tutelege of long-time associate head coaches Sue Frederick and Beth Perine. Hesse also brings back All-MVC second teamers Heather Duckworth and Mary Stephens. In 2011, Hesse’s Bears overcame an up-and-down regular season to play their best softball when it mattered most. Her Bears, led by Tournament MVP Natalie Rose, won four-straight games to earn the sixth Tournament title in team history. Rose hurled four complete games over three days including shutouts of Bradley and UNI on the opening day. Her team then went 1-2 in the Norman Region of the NCAA Tournament, knocking off Iona in an elimination game. At the 2010 Valley Tournament, the Bears once again turned to their ace in the circle to surprise the field with wins over two of the league’s top four teams, as sophomore righty Natalie Rose pitched six straight complete games to lead MSU to three wins in all before regular-season champ Southern Illinois ended the Bears’ quest for a sixth NCAA bid with a 4-3 decision in the semifinal round. At the 2008 State Farm MVC Tournament, the Bears rode the right arm of senior All-MVC performer Melissa Porche to wins over Evansville, Southern Illinois and Illinois State, moving MSU to within one game of an NCAA Tournament berth. Missouri State’s 40-17 record in 2006 included a second-place MVC regular season finish at 18-4, marking the 12th season during Hesse’s guidance the Bears have finished

in the top five of the conference standings. At the MVC Tournament in Omaha, Neb., Missouri State knocked off the regular-season champs, Illinois State, in the semifinals and defeated Wichita State for the title. The Bears’ march to the championship included three wins by the score of 4-0, and marked the fourth MSU conference tournament title under Hesse’s guidance. Missouri State advanced to the Los Angeles Regional, as the Bears made their fourth trip to the NCAA Tournament under Hesse. The 2006 team’s 40 wins surpassed the school’s previous top win total of 38 set by Hesse’s 1994 squad. The 2006 season marked the sixth 30-win season under Hesse, who has guided the Bears to an average of 26 wins per season since her arrival in 1989. Hesse’s most successful stretch at Missouri State came from 1994-98, when her teams averaged 32 wins per season, won an MVC regular-season championship and three tournament championships. The Bears advanced to the NCAA Tournament in three consecutive seasons from 1996-98. In 1998, Missouri State became the first team in league history to three-peat, winning its third straight Valley crown and again punching a ticket to the NCAA Tournament. The Bears played in the NCAA Regional at Stillwater, Okla., and ended the season with a 31-22 record. The 1997 season saw the Bears finish 35-26 and become just the second team in Gateway/MVC history to win back-to-back tourney titles. Missouri State claimed the league crown in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and represented the Valley in the NCAA Regional at Norman, Okla. The thrilling, come-from-behind Missouri State win over Southern Illinois in the 1997 MVC winners’ bracket final was Hesse’s 228th career victory, making her the school’s winningest softball coach. In 1996, Hesse led Missouri State to its first MVC title and its first NCAA berth since 1983 as the Bears rang up a 34-22 record, won four straight games to collect the conference crown in Normal, Ill., before competing in the NCAA Regional at Fullerton, Calif. Hesse won Gateway Conference Coach of the Year honors in 1992, after guiding Missouri State to a 14-4 mark and the regular-season title. In 1994, she led MSU to the Missouri Valley crown with a 13-3 record and was again voted coach of the year. The 1994 Missouri State club set a school record with 38 wins, won the MVC regular-season title by three games and took second in the league tournament, which MSU hosted. Off the field, Hesse has been active in promoting both the sport of softball and women’s sports in general. Nationally, she is one of the founding faculty members of the NCAA Women Coaches Academy, which was created to enhance the skills and perspectives of women coaches, and to aid in the retention of women coaches in intercollegiate athletics. Hesse is also on the Board of Directors for the newly-formed Alliance of Coaches, whose overarching goal is to improve the landscape for women coaches. Locally, she is the former president of the Springfield chapter of the Women’s Intersport Network (WIN) having served in that role from 2009-2012. In 2003, Hesse authored a coaching book, which is available on CD, entitled “The Diamond of Success: A Philosophical Model for Coaching”. A 1982 graduate of Creighton University, Hesse came to Missouri State after two years as an assistant coach at her alma mater. Creighton compiled a record of 72-31, won a High Country Conference title and was ranked in the top 20 in Hesse’s two seasons there. Before her two years in Omaha, Hesse served as an assistant coach for two seasons each at Iowa State University and the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, where she earned her master’s degree in sport management in 1984. Hesse also coached for two seasons at Waukon (Iowa) High, her prep alma mater. Hesse was a standout pitcher at Creighton, where she became the school’s first 20game winner and helped the Jays to three consecutive College World Series appearances. A native of Waukon, Iowa, Hesse won an incredible 161 games as a pitcher for Waukon High. She was inducted into the Iowa Girls High School Pitchers’ Hall of Fame in 1979.

In her role as associate head coach, Frederick serves as first base coach, works with the Bear infielders, offense and oversees MSU’s strength and conditioning, team travel, practice organization, budgeting and clinic development. Frederick came to Missouri State straight from a successful playing career at Creighton. Since joining the Missouri State staff, Frederick has seen the Bears compile a 620-579-2 record and win six conference championships during her time in Springfield. She helped lead the Bears to three straight Missouri Valley Conference Tournament championships from 1996 to 1998 and helped guide them to five NCAA Tournament appearances.

Frederick, who graduated cum laude from Creighton in 1989, was a four-year standout and career .302 hitter on the Jays’ softball team and set school career records for hits (209) and stolen bases (47). As a sophomore, she set CU singleseason marks with 69 hits and 41 runs scored and then tied her hit record with 69 in her senior campaign. Over a three-year stretch, Frederick had 31 straight successful stolen base attempts, a feat which puts her 23rd on the all-time Division I list and her .423 batting mark as a sophomore in 1987 ranked 10th in the nation that year and second in CU history. A two-time all-region first teamer, Frederick helped the Jays to High Country Conference titles in 1986 and 1987, with a College World Series berth in 1986.

2013 Missouri State Season Review

Bears Break Out Bats for Offensive Show in 2013

MSU puts together one of the top all-around offensive seasons in program history

T

he 2013 season was defined by the offensive display put on by the bats of the Missouri State hitters. As a team, the Bears put up some of the best overall offensive numbers in program history. Senior Stevie Pierce helped lead the way with a program tying 10 home runs on the season. She concluded her stellar MSU career with 18 long balls, tied for fourth on the all-time list. In addition, she led the team in walks for the third-straight season drawing 21 free passes in 2013 and racking up 84 career bases on balls, third-most in MSU history. Furthermore, Pierce committed just a single error in 2013, raising her career fielding percentage to .995, top-5 in school history. Fellow senior Kirstin Cutter also placed her name in the MSU annals. Cutter was the only Bear to start and play in all 52 games in 2013. In doing so, she became just the 14th player in MSU history to play in 200 career games. The primary leadoff hitter for the Bears, she led all Valley hitters with 35 base hits during conference play and had a team-high 57 hits on the season. Cutter finished her career with 619 at-bats, third on the all-time career list. Another Bear that penciled her name in the record books was junior catcher Stacia Boeckstiegel. She was hit by a pitch 10 times during 2013, tying the single season school record achieved by Brooke Kempker in 2007. Boeckstiegel also had her first career multi-home run game when she hit two long balls in game one at Memphis on March 12. Overall, the Bears’ offense scored 227 runs, third-

most in school history. As a team, MSU hit .284, also third-best and joined the top-5 in hits with 386 (4th) and home runs with 27 (5th). EARLY SEASON ROAD WARRIORS The Bears began the 2013 season with three consecutive weekends of tournament play away from Killian Stadium. To begin the season, MSU trekked to Atlanta, Ga. for the Kennesaw StateGeorgia Tech Invitational. Despite scoring 28 runs over the five games, the Bears left Atlanta with a 1-4 record. On the second day of the season, the Bears battled host Georgia Tech to a narrow 8-7 defeat, stranding the tying run at third as the game ended. Missouri State got into the win column before heading home with a 5-2 win over Butler on Sunday. For her big weekend (1.067 slugging percent, three home runs, eight RBI and .400 average), Pierce earned MVC Player and MVC Scholar-Athlete of the Week honors. The second weekend of the season saw the Bears in San Antonio, Texas for the UTSA Classic. Wins over Boise State, Iowa State and host UTSA helped the Bears to 3-2 weekend. Freshman Mary Stephens clubbed her first career home runs on her birthday in a win over Boise State. Missouri State saw similar results in Chattanooga, Tenn. to close out February. The Bears went 3-2 at the Frost Classic, downing Boston College, Toledo and host Chattanooga. Hurler Chelsea Jones pitched her first shutout of the season to beat the Mocs on the final day of the tournament.

ADJUSTING TO THE WEATHER Unfavorable weather conditions forced the cancellation of the home opener against Wright State and the Missouri Coaches vs. Cancer Tournament in Cape Girardeau, Mo. After a week and a half off, the Bears rescheduled a doubleheader at SEMO on March 7. A split with the Redhawks was highlighted by Jessie Van Es’ first career win and Lauren Eisenreich throwing out the tying run at the plate to end the game. The Bears ventured to Memphis and split a doubleheader with the Tigers. In game one, Boeckstiegel hit two home runs, the first multihomer game of her career. In game two, MSU rallied from a five-run deficit to down Memphis 16-5 sparked by Eisenreich’s grand slam. A setback at SIU Edwardsville the next day (March 13) wrapped up a 20-game road trip to begin the season. Missouri State finally got its home opener in March 16, a doubleheader to open MVC play on against UNI. The Bears battled the Panthers for nine innings before falling in game one. But MSU rebounded and evened the series with an 8-2 victory in game two, led by Cutter’s 4-for-4 performance. The series finale was rained out. The Bears continued the homestand with a rescheduled doubleheader against non-conference foe UMKC. The Kangaroos were rude visitors sweeping the twin bill from the Bears. A pair of games at Kansas were washed out and as the weather system moved east, the Bears were

again forced to make schedule changes on the fly. The original Saturday-Sunday series at Indiana State was moved up a day. After a tough series opening loss on Friday, the Bears bounced back in a big way on Saturday. Rachel Brisker made her first career start as a Bear, earning the win in a 4-2 decision. MSU took the series with a 9-5 victory in game two with Brisker picking up the save. Weather played a factor in the MVC series against Drake, this time causing the Bears to play home games in Des Moines, Iowa. Torrential rain and melting snow rendered the surface of Killian Stadium unplayable forcing the relocation of games. The Bears took the series with a doubleheader sweep on Saturday. A two-run double by Eisenreich capped a comeback 3-2 win in game one. Six runs scored over the first three innings was ample as the Bears won game two, 6-2. Drake won the series finale. FORTITUDE TESTED Missouri State returned home for a pair of games against nationally ranked in-state foe Missouri. The day didn’t go as the Bears had hoped, but hanging with the No. 6/7 team in the nation for 11 of 12 innings was very uplifting. The Bears hit the road again for a conference series at Illinois State. The Redbirds took game one on an unearned run in a narrow 1-0 win. Missouri State rebounded in game two led by third baseman Heather Duckworth for a 7-4 victory to even the series. Duckworth went 3-for-3 with a home run and four runs batted in. The Redbirds took the series with a win on Sunday. A home setback to Central Arkansas interrupted back-to-back road conference weekends. Missouri State returned to the site of the 2012 MVC Tournament to face Southern Illinois in mid-April. A big third inning by SIU gave the first game to the Salukis. In game two, the Bears held a 5-3 lead going to the bottom of the seventh inning, but a walkoff grand slam thwarted the Bears’ attempt to even the series. In the series finale on Sunday, the teams went extra innings before a controversial call handed the Salukis a sweep in the ninth inning. Another weather related postponement of the midweek series with Wichita State saw the Bears’ next games back at Killian Stadium.

EARNING THEIR SPOT The Bears hosted Evansville in a three-game weekend set on April 20-21 that featured a couple of special celebrations. Between games of the Saturday doubleheader, Missouri State bestowed the honor of a retired jersey upon former great Barb Gaines. It was the first jersey to be retired by the softball program. In addition, the Bears held a post-game ceremony to celebrate coach Holly Hesse’s 25 seasons at the helm of the program. On the field, the Bears dropped game one despite the eighth home run of the season by Pierce. MSU carried over the momentum from the jersey retirement ceremony into a 3-1 game two victory over the Purple Aces. On Sunday, UE took the series with a 6-3 win. Missouri State sat in ninth place in the league standings headed into a rescheduled twin bill at Wichita State. Needing to reach at least the eighth spot to get into the tournament, the series against the Shockers was vital. The Bears answered the bell with a doubleheader sweep in Wichita. The task was difficult as was evident by a three-run deficit early in game one. MSU’s bats responded with 12 runs over a three-inning span aided by home runs by Pierce, Boeckstiegel and Caitlin Chapin for a 12-9 win. Things didn’t get easier in game two as the Bears again fell behind early. Down 6-2 entering the sixth inning, Missouri State got an RBI single from Chapin and a run-scoring triple by Kerri Cunningham in a game-tying inning. The game went to extra innings and the Bears prevailed in the eighth inning on a throwing error on a Cunningham sac bunt. Following the sweep that bumped the Bears up to sixth in the league standings, MSU returned to Killian for the final home stand of the year. League frontrunner Creighton came to town and weather again caused a shuffle in the series. Saturday’s doubleheader was postponed causing a twin bill to be played on Sunday. Game one was a nail-biter with the Bluejays getting two runs in the seventh for a 3-1 win. In game two, runs piled up early for both teams, but Missouri State was able to put up three runs in each of the odd numbered innings for a 10-5 win and series split. Looking to virtually lock up a spot in the MVC

Tournament, the Bears hosted the Shockers to complete the series on April 30. MSU scored in each of the first four innings for a 5-3 win and series sweep. Cutter went 3-for-4 in the game, her 200th career start. Missouri State trekked to Bradley for the regular season concluding series with tournament seeding on the line. Weather again factored into the weekend as just two MVC series were able to be played. The Bears and Braves adjusted the schedule and were able to get all three games played. On Saturday, the Bears shut out Bradley as hurler Jones struck out six BU hitters and drove in a run in a 3-0 victory. The teams played a doubleheader on Sunday to conclude the regular season. In game one, Jones again was dominant in the circle tossing her 21st complete game of the season in a 3-1 win that eliminated the Braves from tournament contention. Bradley jumped out in front in the second game and took the series finale by a 3-1 score. TOURNAMENT TIME Missouri State entered the MVC Softball Championship in Omaha, Neb., as the six-seed. Looking for the seventh tournament title in program history, the Bears would have to get past Evansville in an opening round match up. Missouri State looked to take an early lead in the second inning. Designated player Mary Stephens sent a deep drive to center field, but it was held up by the wind just long enough for the UE fielder to rob her of a go-ahead home run. Neither team would score over the first three innings as both pitchers were dominant allowing just a single hit in the third inning each. The Purple Aces broke through first in the fourth inning. A leadoff double came around to score as Evansville took a 1-0 lead. Missouri State knotted the game in the fifth as Boeckstiegel hit her fourth home run of the season. The Purple Aces retook the lead in the sixth as a leadoff walk crossed the plate with two away in the frame. The Bears again answered in the bottom of the inning. Cutter singled to start the rally. Two batters later, Duckworth walked to give MSU runners at first and second. Stephens flew out to right field

2013 Missouri State Season Review on what looked to be a routine fly ball, but Cutter scored all the way from second base on the sacrifice fly. Neither team was able to push across a run in the seventh inning and the game went to extras. In the top of the eighth, Evansville broke through for a pair of runs. In the bottom half of the frame, MSU got singles from Cunningham and Brentz, but stranded the tying runs on base. HONORARY HARDWARE Junior second baseman Ashley Brentz picked up her second-consecutive All-MVC first team selection. She hit .362 during conference play and hit safely in 19 of 25 MVC games. She had a team high four sac flies on the year, tied atop the league list. Brentz became the Bears’ first back-to-back first team honoree in a decade (Christy Serwein, 2002 and 2003). Fellow middle infielder Kirstin Cutter earned

her second career All-MVC first team pick (2011). She led all Valley hitters with 35 base hits in conference play. Cutter topped the Bears with 57 hits and 34 runs scored and was the only MSU player to play in every game in 2013. Junior third baseman Heather Duckworth and freshman May Stephens were named to the All-MVC second team. Duckworth tallied career bests in runs (25), hits (38), RBI (23) and walks (18) on the season. Stephens led the Bears with four three-hit games, 13 multi-hit games and 19 base hits with runners in scoring position. Off the field, Chelsea Jones and Stevie Pierce earned MVC Scholar-Athlete honorable mention accolades. Jones shouldered much of the workload in the circle for the Bears appearing in 47 games, second-most in school history, and tossed 231.2 innings, second-most in the Valley. Pierce tied a single season school record with 10 home runs and finished her career in the top-5 in fielding percentage (.995) and walks (84).

All-American Barb Gaines   Infielder Barb Gaines (right) became the first Missouri State softball All-America pick as a senior in 1993. She was named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-America Third Team after authoring one of the most outstanding careers in the program’s history.   A native of St. Louis, Gaines enjoyed a brilliant senior season, ranking among the national top-10 in batting average for most of the season and finishing with a then-school record .442 mark. Gaines ranked first in the Missouri Valley Conference in hits (68) and second in stolen bases (22).   The first player in Gateway/MVC history to win all-league honors four straight years, Gaines closed her career with five Missouri State single-season records and eight career marks.

2014 Postseason Information Tournament Field: The field for the 2014 NCAA Softball Tournament will consist of 64 teams and will be announced on May 11. For the ninth consecutive year, softball will use the same format as Division I baseball, sending four teams each to 16 regionals with the winners advancing to Super Regionals. The Super Regional winners will move on to the Women’s College World Series, held May 29-June 4, in Oklahoma City. In all, 31 conferences will receive automatic bids and 33 teams will receive at-large bids. Automatic Bids: The Missouri Valley is one of the 31 leagues whose champions will receive automatic berths in the NCAA Tournament. The Valley’s bid will go to the winner of the MVC Tournament, to be held May 8-10, at Normal, Ill. The 31 conferences receiving automatic bids include: American Athletic America East Atlantic Coast Atlantic-10 Atlantic Sun Big East Big South Big Ten Big 12 Big West Conference USA Colonial Athletic Great West Horizon League Ivy Metro Atlantic Mid-American Mid-Eastern Missouri Valley Mountain West Northeast Ohio Valley Pacific-12 Patriot League Southeastern Southern Southland Southwestern Athletic Summit League Sun Belt Western Athletic Regionals and Super Regionals: Sixteen regional championships each consisting of four teams will be contested Friday through Sunday, May 15-18.

of the schools competing in that regional. The 16 regional winners will advance to the Super Regionals played Thursday through Sunday, May 22-25, again hosted by one of the two institutions involved at each site. The eight Super Regional winners will advance to the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City. 2014 Women’s College World Series: The 33rd annual NCAA Division I softball finals will be played Thursday, May 29, through Wednesday, June 4, at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Okla., with the University of Oklahoma and the Oklahoma City All Sports Association serving as hosts. The WCWS will consist of two four-team brackets with a double-elimination format. The winner of each four-team bracket will advance to the championship, which will be played as a best-ofthree series. Missouri State in the NCAA: The Bears have competed in six NCAA Division I Tournaments, in 1983, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2006 and 2011. In 1983, Missouri State went 1-2 in dropping a best-ofthree series at Missouri. In 1996, the Bears were 0-2 in regional play at Fullerton, Calif., and again went 0-2 at the 1997 Norman, Okla., regional. In the 1998 NCAA Regional in Stillwater, Okla., Missouri State pulled off the biggest upset of the 32-team tournament as the Bears, seeded fourth in the regional, stunned ninth-ranked Stanford, the regional’s top seed, 5-2 in the first round. It was a milestone win for Missouri State, which the previous two years had gone two-and-out in NCAA Regional play. It marked the Bears’ first NCAA win under Hesse and the first by the program since 1983. Missouri State was the only #4 seed to defeat a #1 seed in the opening round of the tournament that season.

This Is The Valley

he Missouri Valley Conference has demonstrated throughout history that it finds the strength, resources, competitive determination and leadership to rise to even higher levels when confronted with change or significant challenges. In 2012-13, the winds of change that have dramatically affected Division I conference realignment in recent years finally touched The Valley. For the first time since 1996, the MVC will experience the addition and departure of a member institution. The Valley formally welcomed Loyola University Chicago into the membership on July 1, 2013. Loyola is the 33rd institution to enter the Missouri Valley Conference and the first-ever member university from the Chicago metropolitan area. In March 2013, Creighton University, an MVC member for nearly 60 years, had announced its departure from the MVC for the newly configured Big East Conference. If the Missouri Valley Conference has been anything over the past 106 seasons of athletic competition, it has been resilient. The Valley – which will experience its 107th season of athletics competition in 2013-14 -- has weathered many kinds of storms, including changes in its membership. In 1928, six institutions (Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Nebraska, Missouri and Oklahoma) left the league to form the Big Six Conference. Another major exodus from the MVC took place in the 1970s when four institutions departed over a three-year period. Each time there has been a setback or a major change in membership, the Conference has retooled and reinvented itself. The nation’s second-oldest NCAA Division I conference continues to be a leader in college athletics and is one of the nation’s most progressive conferences. League members have worked together to focus on common goals and objectives, putting a high value on league harmony while continuing to invest in athletic programs to compete at the highest level.   The Valley brand remains very strong, both regionally and nationally, and the great athletic tradition of The Valley remains a compelling force in recruiting student-athletes and in marketing all the MVC programs.   Men’s basketball continues to be the engine that drives Valley athletic programs. In 2013, Wichita State reached the Final Four, marking the first time since 1979 (Indiana State) that an MVC team had advanced that far (a league member has now been to the Final Four 17 times.) 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. Wichita State (4) and Creighton (21) ended the season ranked in the USA Today Coaches poll, marking the third time in the past eight seasons that two league members achieved a Top-25 ranking in a season-ending poll. Six MVC schools represented the league in post-season play, and the league combined for a record-setting 13 post-season victories in 2013.   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 2010, The Valley took a major step toward ensuring current revenues in television media and tournament sponsorship sales would be guaranteed in future years when it announced a 10-year partnership with Learfield Sports. The Jefferson City, Missouri-based company now has the exclusive sales and marketing rights to MVC assets that include championships and television advertising.   During the tenure of Doug Elgin, The Valley’s ninth and longest-tenured commissioner, The Valley has been aggressive in hosting NCAA events in St. Louis. From 1998-2010, the MVC served as host for a staggering nine NCAA tournament events in that 13-year period, which has made St. Louis one of the most frequent stops on the NCAA Tournament trail. The Valley hosted Women’s Final Fours in 2001 and 2009 and the Men’s Final Four in 2005. This year, The Valley will host an NCAA second- and third-round men’s basketball event at Scottrade Center in St. Louis. Last year, the league hosted an NCAA second- and third-round men’s basketball event in Kansas City and previously assisted with preliminary round men’s events in both 2008 and 2012 in Omaha.   The seeds for the creation of the conference 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

www.MissouriStateBears.com

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.   While The Valley no longer sponsors football (it did from 1907-85), six league members compete in football at the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision) level as Illinois State, Indiana State, Missouri State, UNI and Southern Illinois play in the 10-member Missouri Valley Football Conference (with North Dakota State, South Dakota, South Dakota State, Western Illinois and Youngstown State). That league competed as the Gateway Conference from 1985-2007. Drake plays nonscholarship football in the Pioneer Football League.   This season, the league will conduct its 103rd outdoor track and field championship, its 96th tennis championship, its 60th baseball tournament, and its 76th golf championship for the men. Those programs, plus other current sponsored sports of cross country (55 years), indoor track (63), men’s soccer (23), women’s soccer (17), and swimming and diving (20), have helped solidify The Valley as one of the nation’s most respected conferences.   Athletic accomplishments include four NCAA national basketball championships, 17 trips to the NCAA Final Four, a 1989 national baseball championship and 19 College World Series qualifiers. The league owns a total of 30 post-season national team championships, including Wichita State’s men’s basketball NIT title in 2011. In 2001, Missouri State added to The Valley women’s accomplishments, as the Lady Bears advanced to the Women’s Basketball Final Four in St. Louis. Creighton (2004) and Missouri State (2005) have claimed national championships (WNIT) in women’s basketball. MSU also has a 1992 NCAA Women’s Final Four appearance, and Creighton (2003), Drake (1999) and Illinois State (2009) have made semifinal trips to the WNIT postseason tournament.   Indeed, the inclusion of women’s programs under The Valley banner has provided a boost. The Gateway Collegiate Athletic Conference -- which began in 1982 -- merged with The Missouri Valley Conference and was unveiled as part of the new conference on July 1, 1992.   While the inclusion of women’s sports under a comprehensive athletic umbrella is a recent development in the league’s storied history, over the years, Valley student-athletes and coaches have become household names during the league’s illustrious history, both during their collegiate careers and, for some, professional careers.   In fact, The Valley began honoring that tradition in the summer of 1997, when the conference began its athletics Hall of Fame. Hersey Hawkins of Bradley, Larry Bird of Indiana State, Wes Unseld of Louisville, Coach Henry Iba of Oklahoma State, Dave Stallworth of Wichita State, Ed Macauley of Saint Louis, and Oscar Robertson of Cincinnati were members of the initial induction class. Currently, nearly 80 former players, coaches and alums dot the league’s Hall of Fame.   League members include Bradley, Drake, Evansville, Illinois State, Indiana State, Loyola Chicago, Missouri State, Northern Iowa, Southern Illinois, and Wichita State. Central Arkansas and Southern Illinois Edwardsville are affiliate members in men’s soccer, and Dallas Baptist is an affiliate member for baseball.

Student-Athlete Code of Conduct Student-athletes at Missouri State University (“University”) are representatives of their teams, the Department of Athletics and the University. It is a privilege, not a right, to be a member of an intercollegiate athletics program. It has many benefits, but student-athletes receive a higher level of interest from the public and the media. That attention means student-athletes have a responsibility to be positive and effective members of their program, the University and the Department of Athletics.   As a member of an athletics program, student-athletes are expected to demonstrate the pillars of good character by displaying integrity, honesty, respect for others and good sportsmanship in all academic, athletic and social activities. Additionally, student-athletes are to abide by all University policies, Athletic Department, National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), and conference rules and regulations, as well as city, county, state and federal laws and standards of behavior.   The Student-Athlete Code of Conduct is an Athletic Department policy that applies to all student-athletes including those that are not actively competing in their sport. The standards and expectations set forth apply at all times: in season, out of season, on or off campus, and on and off the playing field. Sanctions will be applied for violation of this Code.   Student-athletes have an obligation to report Code of Conduct violations to their Head Coaches or the Faculty Athletics Representative as soon as possible. Student-athletes who do not conform to this Code may be subject to greater consequences for misconduct that is not reported or that involves multiple or repeat violations.   The Head Coach or Faculty Athletics Representative who learns of a Code of Conduct violation shall report same to the Athletic Director within 24 hours.   A written copy of the Student-Athlete Code of Conduct will be provided to student-athletes annually. It will also be included in the Student-Athlete Handbook and will be available online at the missouristatebears.com website.

MOATS Director of Athletics Fifth Year at Missouri State

M

issouri State University’s search for its new director of athletics concluded May 28, 2009, with the introduction of Kyle Moats as the University’s 10th A.D. Moats came to the University after serving as associate athletics director for national marketing at the University of Louisville since 2005.   During Moats’ tenure at MSU, he has hired five head coaches, while leading the charge for facility upgrades in a number of areas, including the Dr. Mary Jo Wynn Academic Achievement Center project, the Jim D. Morris Basketball Complex, future renovations at Plaster Sports Complex, and the implementation of a long-range athletics facility improvement plan. In a busy first year on the job, Moats wasted little time in laying groundwork for the future of Missouri State Athletics. From day one he emphasized the importance of fostering a strategic vision in the current landscape of intercollegiate athletics by involving all corners of the campus community in developing a long-range plan for MSU Athletics. Moats played a key role in Missouri State’s new partnership with Nelligan Sports Marketing (NSM), announced in February 2010. Additionally, Moats was instrumental in MSU’s negotiations for a new multi-year television contract with KY3, Inc.   Year two for Moats in Springfield saw Missouri State finish second in the 201011 MVC All-Sports Trophy standings—its best finish in five years. Conference titles by men’s basketball, women’s swimming and softball, as well as postseason tournament berths for both MSU basketball programs highighted the Bears’ year. In 2011-12, Moats’ third year at the helm, Missouri State enjoyed its finest campaign in nearly a decade, capturing the Missouri Valley Conference All-Sports Trophy for just the fourth time. The Bears won Valley titles in women’s swimming and diving, women’s indoor track and field, women’s basketball and women’s golf this year along with a co-championship in men’s soccer. Additionally, four MSU teams advanced to postseason play, including NCAA Tournament appearances for the Bears’ volleyball, women’s golf and baseball programs. This past academic year, Moats’ efforts helped make the Jim D. Morris Basketball Complex a reality. The $3.7 million construction project will feature state-of-the art locker rooms, training facilities, offices and meeting space in JQH Arena. Additionally, all 16 MSU athletic programs met the NCAA’s APR requirements this past spring, while a record 157 student-athletes posted grade-point averages of 3.25 or better over the last year. Prior to his arrival in Springfield, Moats spent four years as associate athletics director for national marketing at Louisville. In that capacity, he coordinated the Cardinals’ efforts in national awareness, marketing, branding and group ticket sales. He also worked closely with Nelligan, which manages the exclusive marketing rights for Cardinal Athletics. 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 he 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).   A native of Dixon, Ill., Moats is a 1988 graduate of Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville with a bachelor’s degree in physical education. Moats was a three-year letterwinner in golf and a student assistant basketball coach for the Cougars from 1985-88. He earned a master’s degree in sports management from the University of Kentucky in 2001.   Moats and his wife, Leeann, have a son, Kirk, and a daughter, Lauren.
