It will surely go down as one of the greatest comebacks in school history, but how the UCF track & field team rallied to win 2010 Conference USA title last spring may be one of the greatest come-frombehind victories in league history.

Trailing first-place UTEP by 30 points more than halfway through the final day of competition and sitting in sixth place, the Knights began to make a move up the leader board. On the strength of 43 points from its hurdlers, UCF moved into first place with just five events remaining. With the home crowd behind them, the Knights were able to hold off surging UTEP to win their first-ever C-USA crown. In doing so, UCF posted a program conference-best 114 points in capturing its first league title since 2004 (A-Sun). Now, the Knights are faced with the daunting task of returning to the top of the mountain in 2011. With the return of C-USA Coach of the Year Caryl Smith Gilbert and the program’s first-ever USTFCCCA All-American in junior hurdler/ sprinter Jackie Coward, remaining at the top is a strong possibility for the near future. A good mix of youth and veteran leadership will have the Knights in the thick of competition at every meet this season. Sophomore Sonnisha Williams is back after both she and Coward advanced all the way to the NCAA Championships a year ago. The successes of Williams and Coward are examples of the direction UCF is headed with Smith Gilbert at the helm of the program in 2011 and beyond.

HEAD COACH Caryl Smith Gilbert Now in her fiourth season at the helm of the UCF track & field and cross country programs, Caryl Smith Gilbert has made it evident that her goal is to build a championship program. In 2010, that goal became a reality as she led her team to a Conference USA title. In the spring of 2010, Smith Gilbert helped lead her team to a dramatic come-from behind finish to claim the program’s first-ever C-USA Championship in outdoor track. The Knights took the lead with three events remaining and held off a late-surge by UTEP to claim the conference title. In a championship that had 21 total events, UCF athletes had 32 seperate season-best and 22 personal-best performances in the four-day meet. One of Smith Gilbert’s runners during the 2010 season would go on to become the first NCAA Outdoor All-American. Jackie Coward finished fifth in the 100-meter hurdles in the NCAA Track & Field Championships at Historic Hayward Field at the University of Oregon.

UCF Track & field complex Built in 1991, the UCF Track & Field Complex serves as the home to all home track and field meets as well as men’s and women’s soccer games. The Knights also use the facility as the site of all of their practices. The complex features an eightlane, 400-meter track that was resurfaced during the summer of 2004. The facility includes throwing areas for the hammer, discus and shot put, as well as recently improved long and triple jump pits. The complex features bleacher seating with a capacity for 500 fans and numerous other spectator areas. In 2006, the bleachers were upgraded to feature more comfortable chairback seating. This season, the Knights hosted three meets at the facility which served as warmups to this weekend’s prestigious event, including the Black & Gold Challenge, the UCF Invitational and the UCF Twilight. Renovations on the complex got underway in the summer of 2010. These renderings display plans to include a new section of bleachers which will provide expanded seating, a press box and a building to house concessions and restroom facilities. The UCF Track & Field Complex is nestled between the 45,000-seat Bright House Networks Stadium and the 10,000-seat UCF Arena, which both opened in 2007 and house the Knights’ football and basketball programs, respectively.

UCF DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS KEITH R. TRIBBLE Upon his hiring on June 6, 2006, Keith Tribble publicly shared his two core goals in taking the director of athletics position with the University of Central Florida – to graduate student-athletes and compete for championships. Since that day, everything UCF has planned and accomplished has fit within that mission. In over three decades working in and around the collegiate community, the consistency in Tribble’s background is his ability to build programs with strong foundations and dynamic infrastructure. Tribble, one of only seven African-American directors of athletics in the Football Bowl Subdivision, has quickly taken hold of the burgeoning UCF Athletics program’s blueprints and promised to lead with the two key principles that everyone associated with the program will also share. Most importantly, Tribble is committed to the concept of the well-rounded student-athlete, emphasizing the importance of their academic prowess off the field as well as championship results on. In addition, the other focal point of his concentration is the oversight of the construction, expansion and completion of the UCF Athletics Facilities Master Plan. When finished in 2020, the plan will have touched every-single area of the student-athletes’ well-being, including residential housing, academic and mentoring support facilities and state-of-the-art performance venues where UCF fans and supporters can cheer on the Knights. To date, Tribble has overseen $150 million in new construction and improvements to UCF athletic facilities since his arrival, and was recently approved to move forward with a $70 million facility development plan that will complete the UCF Athletics quadrant on campus. Through a renewed commitment, Tribble has been most proud of the record academic achievement of UCF student-athletes during his time in Orlando. The Knights, for the fourth-straight year in 2009-10, led all public institutions in Conference USA with the highest number of student-athletes on the C-USA Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll with 221 representatives maintaining a 3.0 grade-point average or better. UCF’s 221 honorees represented approximately 60 percent of the school’s total student-athletes. For three-straight years, through 2009, UCF student-athletes had placed the highest number on the league honor roll for all schools, public or private. UCF Athletics can now compete for C-USA championships in all sports, and has been progressing in this direction under Tribble since his first year at UCF. In recent years, the football program has played for two C-USA titles, winning in 2007. That same year, women’s soccer and softball and members of the women’s track and field squad first claimed C-USA titles. In 2008-09, C-USA Coach of the Year Joi Williams led a young women’s basketball program to a memorable conference championship and NCAA Tournament invitation. Men’s golf won its first C-USA championship, while finishing among the top-10 teams nationally in 2009 and followed up in 2010 with another C-USA team title. Women’s track and field earned the school’s latest league title with a memorable finish at the 2010 C-USA Championship, helping Caryl Smith Gilbert earn conference coach of the year honors. Women’s soccer was ranked as high as No. 8 in the nation in 2009 and made its third-consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance behind C-USA Coach of the Year Amanda Cromwell. In all, UCF Athletics has or will be competing in NCAA postseason tournaments in all of its programs in the coming seasons. Tribble arrived at UCF following 13 years as the chief executive officer of the south Florida-based Orange Bowl Committee, where he was an integral part of reshaping the collegiate football bowl system into an acclaimed industry. Tribble attended the University of Florida where he played offensive guard for three bowl teams. He graduated in 1977 with a bachelor’s degree in journalism (public relations and marketing). Tribble and his wife, Terri, have a daughter, Carlyn, and a son, Kyle.
