HEAD COACH

MARK BRANCH Head Coach (Oklahoma State ‘97) Ninth Year at Wyoming In his eight seasons, UW head man Mark Branch has raised the expectations of Cowboy Wrestling to new heights. He’s upped the profile of Wyoming Wrestling and brought the program notoriety and name recognition with levels of success rarely seen in the program’s history. With 80 dual wins and a 83-percent win rate within the conference ranks, Branch has established the Cowboys as the team to beat year in and year out. Branch has compiled a 38-8 mark against conference record foes with four regular-season dual titles. Branch led the Pokes to a 6-6 overall dual record in its first season as a member of the Big 12 conference. He guided three competitors to the 2016 NCAA Championship inside the iconic Madison Square Garden, as two of the Cowboys received seeds to last season’s championship with one Poke being unseeded. Tanner Harms earned his second trip to NCAAs, while Bryce Meredith and Drew Templeman made their first trips for UW. Meredith fell in the 141-pound final’s match, but became the first Cowboy to wrestle in the finals since Reese Andy in 1996. In 2014-15, he led the Pokes to a 11-4 overall dual record including a seven-dual winning streak. He led six Cowboys to the NCAA tournament and ad nine wrestlers earn All-WWC honors. He also guided Shane Woods to his third NCAA West Regional/ WWC Championship. Currently, 54 Cowboys have been named AllConference under Branch and he has sent 37 qualfiers to the NCAA Championship. Branch is currently fourth all-time in dual wins at Wyoming. His 11 dual wins was the fifth time he has had double-digit dual wins in his career at UW. In his 2013-14, he helped bring the Pokes back from a 1-6 start in dual action to finish 6-6 overall, but more importantly, 4-1 in WWC duals to win the regular-season title. The Cowboys knocked off 19thranked North Dakota State in the season finale to win the crown. In tournament action, UW brought home two Reno Tournament of Champions titles and placed two at the Las Vegas Invitational. Beginning the postseason in the West Regional. The Pokes were second in the event, as the squad has placed first or second in each of the previous six years. Four Pokes earned bids to the 2013 NCAA Championships, bringing the head man’s total to 31 over six years. UW failed to earn an All-America honor for the first time in Branch’s tenure. Under Branch, UW has had eight All-America finishers. “Mark has done a phenomenal job since 2008 in terms of developing a nationally competitive program and helping our student-athletes achieve their goals,” Wyoming Athletic Director Tom Burman said. “He and his family have proven to be a great fit for Wyoming and he understands the state and the values of its residents. The Cowboys have reached unprecedented heights on the mat and in the classroom and I expect that to continue into the foreseeable future.” With Branch’s help, senior Joe LeBlanc capped off a fine career in 2012, earning four All-America nods, the first wrestler in UW history to do so. That same season, UW finished 19th in the team standings in 2012, the first top-20 finish for the Pokes since 1996. The dual season was a successful one, as the Cowboys were 10-3 and a 6-0 in WWC action. Wyoming won its third-straight West

THE HIGH PLAINS ADVANTAGE Training and competing at 7,220 feet has its advantages. The Cowboys use their offseason to improve their conditioning, training in various outdoor locations. During the season, the Pokes train in the team wrestling room with high intensity. That has led to a lot of success on the home mats. Since 1931-32, the Cowboys are 255-157-6 at home, a winning percentage of nearly 62 percent. At neutral sites, Wyoming is 84-54-1 (.608), and 209-192-8 (.528) at away locations.

UW HALL OF FAME University of Wyoming Athletics Hall of Fame Wrestling Inductees The University of Wyoming Athletics Hall of Fame was established in 1993, in order to honor individuals and teams who have brought honor and distinction to the Intercollegiate Athletics Department of UW over its long and storied history. A total of 123 individuals and 12 teams have been inducted into the Hall of Fame since its inception in 1993. That total includes six Cowboy wrestlers, two wrestling coaches/administrators and one Wyoming Wrestling team. The inductees must fit into one of five categories: student-athlete, coach, team, athletics staff members or special achievement. Special achievement includes individuals who have contributed to the ideal of sports at the University. Each nominee must receive at least 75 percent of the committee’s vote to be eligible for induction. Dick Ballinger (1958-60) - Class of 1993 Dick Ballinger is the only wrestler in University of Wyoming history to win an NCAA championship. A native of Cody, Wyo., Ballinger won the 1960 NCAA Wrestling championship at 167 pounds. During his outstanding career he was named an All-American three times. He placed second in the 1958 NCAA Championships and fourth in the 1959 NCAA Championships. Ballinger guided Wyoming to a sixth-place national team finish in 1959 and a Wyoming all-time best third-place team finish in the 1960 NCAA Championships. Dr. Everett D. Lantz (1937-65) - Class of 1994 Everett Lantz served Wyoming wrestling for 25 years as head coach, the longest tenure of any coach in the UW history. Over that period, Lantz compiled a 141-75-9 dual record, 11 Skyline Conference championships and two WAC titles. His teams won eight titles in a row from 1955 to 1962. He notched seven top15 NCAA finishes, including a third-place national showing in 1960, the best in team history. Lantz was named the NCAA Wrestling Coach of the Year in 1960. He coached six NCAA place-winners, 10 three-time conference champions and 30 other conference winners. 1959-60 team - Class of 2003 The 1959-60 Wyoming Cowboys became the first and only wrestling team in school history to finish in the top five at the NCAA Wrestling Championships. The Pokes won the Skyline Conference and finished the season with an 11-1 dual record. The team boasted five conference champions and seven Cowboys competed at the 1960 NCAA Wrestling Championships where UW came only 13 points away from the title, finishing third. Dick Ballinger won the national championship at 167 pounds, Jerry Frude finished second at 147 pounds and Dave Hansen placed third at 123 pounds, all earning All-American honors. Wyoming head coach Everett Lantz earned 1960 NCAA Coach of the Year honors from the National American Wrestlers Association. Reese Andy (1993-96) - Class of 2004 Reese Andy was a three-time NCAA All-American. Wrestling at 177 pounds, he placed second nationally in 1994, sixth in 1995 and second in 1996. He was a three-time Western Athletic Conference champion and was named Outstanding Wrestler in the conference three straight years (1994-96). Andy’s overall record at Wyoming was 110-29, and he compiled a record of 38-4 in his senior season. Joe Dowler (1973-87) - Class of 2005 In his 14 seasons as head wrestling coach at Wyoming, Joe Dowler led the Pokes to a 104-64-1 dual record while capturing four straight Mountain Intercollegiate Wrestling Association (MIWA) Championships, and three Western Athletic Conference titles. Dowler coached 35 conference champions, two NCAA placewinners, and two All-Americans at Wyoming. Named WAC Coach of the Year three times (1983, 1985 and 1986), he was a finalist for 1986 NCAA Wrestling Coach of the Year. Dowler was an Associate Athletics Director at UW from 1987-2001. Following his retirement, he initiated and coordinated the “W” Club for all UW athletic letterwinners. Dave Myers (1989-92) - Class of 2008 One of Wyoming’s only four-time conference champions, Myers won Western Athletic Conference titles at three different weights and represented Wyoming at the NCAA Championships four times. He was named Outstanding Wrestler of the WAC Tournament in both 1991 and 1992. He led the Wyoming wrestling team to conference championships in 1990 and 1992. In his senior year (1992) he earned All-America honors by finishing eighth at the NCAA Championships. He won 121 matches as a Cowboy, tied for sixth on Wyoming’s all-time victory list. Jerry Frude (1959-60, 1962) - Class of 2010 Jerry Frude was a two-time All-America, earning the honors in 1959 and 1960. In 1959 as a sophomore, he won the Mountain States/Skyline Conference title at 147 pounds and then went on to a second-place finish in the NCAA Championships, helping the Cowboys to a sixth-place team finish. He again finished second in the nation in the 147-pound weight class in 1960, while Wyoming finished third as a team. After sitting out a year in 1961, Frude rejoined the team in 1962 and was named co-captain. He won his second Skyline Conference championship at 147 pounds and won his first two matches at the NCAA Championships before falling to eventual national runner-up Kirk Pendleton of Lehigh. A native of Laramie, Frude was never pinned by an opponent during his college career. Wyoming’s wrestling teams finished sixth (1959), third (1960), and 11th (1962) in the nation during Frude’s time at UW and won the Mountain States/Skyline Conference team championship each year (1959, 1960 and 1962). Dr. Robert Mason (1949-51) - Class of 2011 A high school football and basketball star, Bob Mason had never seen a wrestling match before he came to the University of Wyoming. After watching the sport and talking to wrestling coach Everett Lantz, he decided to join Wyoming’s wrestling team. A native of Burns, Wyo., he won the conference championship in his first year of competition. Wyoming’s first wrestling All-America, Mason placed fourth in the nation at 155 pounds in 1950. He repeated that feat in 1951 to gain his second All-America honor. In the Mountain States Conference, Mason won championships at 165 pounds in both 1949 and 1950 and, as team captain both years and led his team to conference titles in 1950 and 1951. At NCAAs, the Cowboy wrestling team finished 12th in 1950 and 13th in 1951. Mason was a three-time letterwinner for the `Pokes and earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Wyoming. He went on to a distinguished career as a high school and college wrestling coach and official and earned a doctorate in education from the University of Washington. He was inducted into the National Junior College Athletic Association Hall of Fame in 1980 and inducted posthumously into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2008. Mason died on March 18, 2000, at the age of 70. Ray Sanchez (1967-68) - Class of 2012 One of the greatest Wyoming high school wrestlers in state history, Ray Sanchez came to the University of Wyoming after compiling an amazing record of 98-0 and winning four state championships at Cheyenne Central High School. He was a two-time senior men’s National AAU champion in 1965 and 1966 and a two-time Great Plains National Champion representing Wyoming in 1966 and 1967. Sanchez was undefeated competing for the Cowboys’ Freshman Team in 1966. As a Cowboy sophomore on the varsity in 1967, despite battling an elbow injury, Sanchez finished fourth in the nation at 115 pounds and earned All-America honors. Unfortunately, he suffered a back injury the following year and was forced to give up wrestling. He went on to a successful career as a teacher, coach and high school administrator.

SPORTS PERFORMANCE Cowboy Tough - Sports Performance “Wrestling is a sport that requires a training program to focus on different metabolic systems, movement patterns, and potential injury

sites. The main focus is to improve the athlete’s strength levels and their ability to produce power, while maintaining a relatively low body weight. Wrestling also places various joints and their supporting musculature in abnormal situations, which, if not properly prepared for, could result in injury. “Sports performance at the University of Wyoming is a scientifically based, year-round process with particular training goals for the various times of the year. After the competitive season, the athletes work to rehabilitate any injuries, regain any lost flexibility or mobility, and bring up any weaknesses that may have occurred during the season. The off-season is a time where increasing overall strength is the highest priority, due to no practice or weigh-ins. As the preseason approaches, the emphasis switches towards sport-specific strength and power development. In terms of the weight room, the competitive season is broken up into early season, during season, to late season. Although the two are similar in the specific goals of maintaining strength and power built in the off-season, the during and late season portion of the competitive season reduces the amount of stress on the wrestlers’ body, increases their conditioning level, and prepares them for peak performance at conference and NCAA National tournaments. “Athletic development extends beyond just physical improvement. An intense, strict, competitive and creative training environment develops work ethic, mental toughness, positive attitude, accountability and leadership.” Jason Dronen Cowboy Wrestling Sports Performance Coach Wyoming Cowboy Wrestling - National Strength and Conditioning Association Annual All-America Strength and Conditioning Awards *Given to student-athletes for their dedication to strength and conditioning training. Must be nominated by a strength and conditioning coach to be eligible.

WYOMING TRADITIONS RAGTIME COWBOY JOE The familiar fight song of the University of Wyoming athletics teams is Ragtime Cowboy Joe. This song is performed by the band as UW teams enter the playing surface, following a score or big play, and to fire up the fans. The Cowboy and Cowgirl studentathletes traditionally sing this following each Wyoming victory.

RAGTIME COWBOY JOE “He always sings raggy music to the cattle as he swings back and forward in the saddle, on a horse - a pretty good horse! He’s got a syncopated gaiter, and you ought to hear the meter to the roar of his repeater; how they run - yes run! - when they hear that he’s ‘a-comin’, cause the western folks all know, he’s a high-falootin’, rootin, tootin’, son of a gun from ol’ Wyoming, Ragtime Cowboy, Talk about your Cowboy, Ragtime Cowboy Joe.”

THE STAMPEDE The Stampede is the official athletics fan club for University of Wyoming students.  The Stampede is one BIG fan club for all 17 NCAA Division I sports at the University of Wyoming. The Stampede leads Wyoming fans in spirit, tradition and passion for Wyoming Athletics. Members of the Stampede receive multiple benefits, and as a student at UW, The Stampede is the best way to become involved in Wyoming Athletics.

COWBOY NICKNAME The nickname “Cowboys” was applied to Wyoming athletic teams as early as 1891 - two years before the first official football game. The story is that the Wyoming pick-up football team appealed to a 220 pound cowpuncher, Fred Bush, for help in a game against the Cheyenne Soldiers. Bush signed up for a course or two and came out for the team. When he trotted onto the field decked out in a checkered shirt and Cowboy hat, someone yelled, “Hey, look at the Cowboy!” Since many of the members of the team were also ex-cowboys, the name stuck. When women’s sports were added at UW, the nickname of Cowgirls was applied to those squads.

COWBOY JOE PONY Cowboy Joe IV, a fourth generation Wyoming mascot, trots around War Memorial Stadium after each Cowboy touchdown, a tradition which started in 1950 when the Farthing Family of Cheyenne made a generous donation of a young pony to become Wyoming’s mascot. Cowboy Joe also represents UW in parades around the region, appears in Tailgate Park on football game days and leads the band and team in the pre-game Cowboy Walk. This beautiful little pony is very popular with Cowboy & Cowgirl fans of all ages.

WYOMING TRADITIONS SPIRIT SQUADS The primary purpose of Wyoming’s Spirit Squads is to support the Cowboys and Cowgirls, and to serve as public relations ambassadors for the University of Wyoming. The UW cheer and pom squads work hard to get the crowd involved, lead cheers, entertain, and to boost the level of fan excitement and support to new extremes. In addition to their game-day involvement at UW Athletics’ contests, Wyoming Spirit Squad members also make numerous appearances at university activities, functions, programs, charitable and public events. Cowboy and Cowgirl sports are flying high and the Wyoming Spirit Squads are leading the way.

PISTOL PETE Pistol Pete is a UW student mascot who works alongside the Wyoming Spirit Squads, encouraging the crowd and getting fans involved in the game.

WESTERN THUNDER MARCHING BAND The University of Wyoming Marching Band “Western Thunder” - features musicians from nearly every major on campus, who perform for thousands of football fans each year at home and road Cowboy football games. The Wyoming Pep Band plays at numerous other UW sporting events.

UW’S LOGO - STEAMBOAT One of the nation’s best, and most distinctive logos, the image on Wyoming’s uniforms depicts a cowboy riding a bucking horse. This symbol has been a part of the University of Wyoming Athletics Department since the early 1920’s, when UW Equipment Manger Deane Hunton obtained a photograph of a cowboy, Guy Holt, riding the world famous bucking horse Steamboat. Hunton had the photo made into a logo, which was then utilized by UW athletic teams. While there are differing opinions on exactly which horse and rider is depicted on all of UW’s athletic uniforms today, it is the symbol that is important. The bucking horse and rider represents the toughness, and the never-say-die spirit that is Wyoming. A statue honoring the symbol called ‘Fanning a Twister’, was erected at the north entrance of UW’s athletics facilities in 1991.

BROWN AND GOLD COLORS The story behind the colors of the University of Wyoming dates back to 1895. In the spring of that year, the first ever UW Alumni Banquet was held. Decorations for the banquet included Brown-Eyed Susans, a flower native of Southeastern Wyoming. The Alumni were so impressed with the colors (brown and yellow) and the beauty of the flowers that they decided to select these colors as the official school colors at UW. Currently, the colors are described as brown and gold.

Spend some time here and you’ll agree that much of UW’s character is shaped by this great “home on the range.” Laramie, the location of the main campus, is a safe, friendly community of 30,000 people. Nestled between the Laramie and Snowy Range mountains in southeastern Wyoming, it’s a beautiful, unspoiled place with a special life-style. The campus extends over 785 tree-shaded acres. There’s an attractive mix of modern and traditional structures; many were built with native Wyoming sandstone. It’s a place where the sun shines 320 days each year. It’s hard to be gloomy here. When you view it from 7,200 feet, you see things more clearly. But it’s not just a pretty place; it’s also a place that works. Up-to-date facilities support the learning and research mission that makes UW special. There are classrooms with state-of-the art computer technology, laboratories with the latest equipment, excellent libraries, computer systems with universal Internet access, and a long list of premier research facilities both on campus and in the surrounding area.

For breathtaking beauty, Wyoming is unmatched. Its reputation brings millions of visitors to its borders each year. Plus, some of the best skiing in America can be found in Wyoming. Tourists and sportsmen can’t wait to get here to enjoy the clean mountain air and limitless outdoor attractions. The history of the great American West can be heard whistling through the trees of Wyoming. Wyoming had an historic place in the taming of the West in the late 1800’s. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were two of Wyoming’s most famous citizens during the era of lawlessness. There remain plenty of reminders of an age that will live forever in American lore.

People are Wyoming’s strongest resource. These folks are down to earth, friendly and helpful. And, oh how proud they are of their Cowboys and Cowgirls. Wyoming has some of the best fans in America. As their only four-year university, Wyoming folks are tremendously supportive of their teams. Yet, as down to earth as they are, many Wyomingites are on the cutting edge of politics, entertainment and business. Among some of the most famous are: former Vice President of the United States Dick Cheney; Dr. Jerry Buss, owner of the Los Angeles Lakers; Dean Conger, former chief photographer of the National Geographic Society; Curt Gowdy, the most decorated national sportscaster in history; Alan Simpson, former United States Senator; Gerry Spence, attorney and television personality; and General Pete Schoomaker, former U.S. Army Chief of Staff. For great people, great scenery and a great education, there is no place quite like Wyoming.
