University of Iowa head women’s golf coach Megan Menzel enters her second year at the helm of the Hawkeyes in 2012-13. Iowa will have a wealth of experience, with six golfers returning with starting experience, in addition to an impressive stock of incoming players. Headlining the returners are seniors Kristi Cardwell and Gigi DiGrazia. Cardwell had a strong junior campaign, playing 32 rounds with a 77.13 stroke average. Cardwell carried that momentum into the summer and won her first professional event. Cardwell bested the field of 100 players, including a few professionals, by one stroke in the Pepsi Indiana PGA Women’s Open at Hickory Stick Golf Club on July, 3. “Kristi has been in our top two here for a few years now and we really expect her to step in and fill that number one player role,” said Menzel. “She has some lofty goals and a lot of excitement heading into her senior year.” DiGrazia not only brings senior leadership on the course, but off the course as well. DiGrazia recently earned the Big Ten Distinguished Scholar award in Human Physiology for her previous academic term. “Gigi an outstanding student off the course and also a great player, so we look to her for strength in a lot of areas,” Menzel said. “She brings a ton of enthusiasm to our team so she’ll be a great leader.” Being the two seniors of the group, Menzel expects Cardwell and DiGrazia to lead the way. “They understand the expectations of this team and the attitude and work ethic that we are looking for,” Menzel said, “They’ve gotten to their senior year, learned a lot, and kind of tucked away all that experience.” Sophomores Shelby Phillips and Lauren English competed in every tournament last season as freshmen. Menzel is looking for the duo to build off their experiences last year and bring quality play to the lineup. “Lauren brings a wealth of experience to the team and really has been one of the most impressive players this summer,” Menzel said, “Her work ethic and attitude have been great, so I’m really excited for her to come in and use those tools this year. “Shelby is just a gamer,” Menzel said. “She loves to come out and play and I really expect her to be one of the strongest players on the team this year.” Junior Karly Grouwinkel and sophomore Nicole Rae round out Iowa’s returning letterwinners.
“Both players have a lot of potential,” Menzel said. “We need all of our returning players to take their games to the next level and help us compete each week, in practice and in tournaments.” The Hawkeyes welcome three new faces to the team in freshmen Brianna Midkiff and Amy Ihm, along with Anna DePalma, who transferred from Hawaii and will have two years of eligibility remaining. Midkiff was ranked the No. 2 player in Indiana for the class of 2012, while Ihm was a two time first team all-state selection in Iowa. DePalma competed in a total of 11 tournaments in her two years at Hawaii. “Our newcomers will add depth and plenty of talent to our roster,” Menzel said. “I’m really excited about the new faces in our program. They each bring something new to our team and I’m looking forward to seeing them compete.” Looking ahead to the upcoming season, Menzel expects this year’s squad to not only talk the talk, but also walk the walk. “We can say whatever we want but we have to back it up with the work ethic,” Menzel said, “I think that’s an area that we’re beginning to really understand and we’re excited for our team. I think if they do what they need to do, they can contend with anybody.” PA G E 3

I will always remember all the positive energy the Hawkeye country gave to me.” - Kristi Cardwell

HEAD COACH MEGAN MENZEL BIO
MEGAN MENZEL HEAD COACH SECOND SEASON Megan Menzel is in her second season as the head coach of the University of Iowa women’s golf program. Menzel joined the Hawkeyes in Aug. 2011 after serving as a teaching professional at the Denver Country Club from 2007-09. Menzel brings a wealth of collegiate coaching experience with her to Iowa City, having served as the head coach at three separate institutions -- Boise State (1998-99), Colorado State (2000-2002) and Kansas (2002-04). During her most recent coaching stint with the Jayhawks, Menzel recruited the first individual conference champion at KU, while helping the program improve its overall conference and national rankings. She also initiated an $800,000 fundraising effort to improve the Kansas facilities and created the program’s booster organization. After two seasons in Lawrence and five seasons as a head coach, Menzel resigned her post as the Jayhawks’ head coach to focus on her growing family. Menzel returned to the golf teaching circles as the assistant golf professional at Lawrence Country Club from 2007-09. In April 2009, she joined the golf teaching staff at the Denver Country Club in Colorado. Menzel’s first coaching opportunity came at Boise State, where she was in charge of the program during the 1998-99 campaign at the age of 23. She recruited the first ever individual NCAA Regional qualifier in Bronco history. Following one season in Boise, Menzel took over as head coach at Colorado State in July of 2000. During her stint with the Rams, she recruited and coached the 2002 Mountain West Conference individual champion. Her squad qualified for NCAA Regionals in 2001 and 2002 and claimed the 2001 CSU Invitational team title. Academically, Menzel’s team led the CSU Athletics Department in cumulative grade point average during the 2001 season, and she coached three academic all-conference student-athletes during her stint at the school. Menzel played collegiate golf at the University of New Mexico from 1993-97, where she led the Lobos to three Western Athletic Conference titles (1994, 1995, 1996). The two-time team captain (1995, 1996), was a two-time academic allconference selection, while being named the 1996-97 Bank of America Academic Athlete of the Year. Menzel graduated from New Mexico in 1998 with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. She is an LPGA Apprentice and A.C.E. certified personal trainer. She also holds golf fitness certification levels I and II from the Titleist Performance Institute. Menzel, who was born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is married to Craig Menzel and the couple has three children -- Kennedy (10), Callie (9), and Maclayne (7).

LAURA CILEK ASSISTANT COACH SECOND SEASON Former Hawkeye Laura Cilek is in her second season as an assistant coach for the University of Iowa women's golf program. Cilek, who served as the interim assistant coach since August, played for the Hawkeyes from 2007-11, where she was a four-year letterwinner. During her UI career, she was a four-time recipient of the Big Ten Sportsmanship Award and a three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection. In 2009-10, Cilek was one of 22 student-athletes in the Big Ten Conference named the Outstanding Sportsmanship Award winner. "I am thrilled to have Laura return to our program as a member of our coaching staff," said Menzel. "I believe she is a great young talent in coaching, and she was an outstanding studentathlete at Iowa. As a native of Iowa City, Laura will be a tremendous ambassador for our university community and our women's golf program." The Iowa City, Iowa, native served as the team captain for three seasons, and was a member of Iowa's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee in 2009 and 2010. "Coach Menzel has a great vision for the future of Iowa golf, and I am very excited that she has given me the opportunity to help her achieve that vision," said Cilek. "Having been a studentathlete at Iowa and growing up in Iowa City, the Hawkeyes have always held a special place in my heart, and it means a lot to me to be a part of a great program and institution." Cilek, who played 109 rounds in her Hawkeye career, posted a career-best 78.6 scoring average over 30 rounds during her senior season. She finished fourth at the Chip-N-Club Invitational -- a career-best -- and fired a career-low round of 70 at the Badger Invitational. During her junior season, Cilek was tabbed as the Big Ten Golfer of the Week on March 17, 2010, after leading the Hawkeyes to a sixth place finish at the Jackrabbit Invitational. Off the course, Cilek was named to the Dean's List in 2008 and 2010. Following her junior season, she did a United States Senate internship for Senator Tom Harkin in Washington D.C., and she has also worked in the pro shop at Iowa's Finkbine Golf Course since 2007. Cilek graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in political science with a minor in communications in May 2011.

G A R Y B A R TA B I O GARY BARTA
AT H L E T I C D I R E C T O R
The Barta family includes Connie, Madison, Gary and Luke.
Now in his seventh year as director of athletics at the University of Iowa and his 26th year in athletic administration, Gary Barta manages an athletics program that continues to gain momentum in two key areas -- on the playing field and in the classroom -while enhancing the infrastructure that will serve as the foundation for future successes. Academically, the UI’s federal graduation rate of 74 percent (for student-athletes who enrolled in 2004-05) ties the best ever posted by UI athletics. That mark was a 13-point increase over the previous year and was nine points above the national average; UI student-athletes will establish another record when the latest figures are released in October. Last fall, the NCAA confirmed that all 24 of Iowa’s teams exceeded the Academic Progress Rate (APR) benchmark for the fourth straight year. In figures released last fall, Iowa’s score of 86 percent in the NCAA’s “Graduation Success Rate” or GSR, also matched a school record. Five different women’s teams at the UI posted perfect 100 GSR scores. Iowa’s GSR in football (83), men’s (73) and women’s (100) basketball all ranked above the national average for their respective sports. Athletically, Hawkeye teams enjoyed another outstanding year in 2011-12. A significant number of Iowa’s 24 programs reached postseason play. The Iowa football team reached bowl eligibility for the 11th straight season and competing in a bowl game for the fourth straight year and 10th time in the last 11 seasons. The women’s basketball program participated in the NCAA Tournament for a fifth straight season and men’s basketball returned to postseason competition under second-year coach Fran McCaffery, recording an 84-75 win over Dayton in front of 13,190 re-energized fans in Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The Hawkeye wrestling program, led by national champion Matt McDonough, made another run at a national title before placing third. The men’s golf team placed 22nd nationally in its third appearance in the NCAA Championships in the last four seasons. Additionally, the UI men’s track and field placed 23rd in the nation and the UI’s men’s swimming and diving program placed 26th at its national championship. Iowa’s field hockey team advanced to the NCAA Tournament and the Hawkeye softball team placed second in the Big Ten. Between the men’s and women’s track and field teams, 34 student-athletes competed at the NCAA Championships and 14 members of the UI men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams qualified for the Olympic Trials. And, while the UI athletics department continues to earn high marks in integrity, academic excellence, and athletic performances. Barta also continues to oversee critical
improvements and additions to the facilities used by the UI’s talented student-athletes while maintaining a balanced and ever-growing operations budget that continues to be self-sustaining. In addition to the competitive success the Hawkeyes recorded in 2011-12, the UI once again experienced tremendous success at the turnstiles. Iowa has sold every seat in historic Kinnick Stadium in each of the past two seasons, ranking 21st in national attendance both years. The UI will enter the 2012 home football season with all seven home games sold out once again and boasts waiting lists for not only season tickets, but also the premium seating options available inside the Paul W. Brechler Press Box. Attendance at home games of the UI’s men’s basketball team has climbed more than 30 percent the last two seasons. Iowa’s attendance of 13,190 for a first round NIT game in Carver-Hawkeye Arena ranked as the highest attended game of the 2012 tournament. The UI wrestling team set another national attendance record by averaging 9,014 fans per home meet in 2011-12, leading the nation in attendance for the sixth straight year. The economic impact of the 2012 U.S. Olympic Wrestling Team Trials, hosted by the UI in Carver-Hawkeye Arena, exceeded $5 million, according to survey results released by the Iowa City/Coralville Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. Attendance at home games of the UI’s women’s basketball games also remained strong as the program once again ranked among national leaders in 2011-12. The UI also registered increases in attendance at home volleyball, soccer, field hockey, women’s gymnastics, men’s gymnastics, softball and baseball events. Since 2006, the Hawkeyes have invested more than $150 million in new and renovated athletic facilities. Upgrades include the restoration of historic Kinnick Stadium and Carver-Hawkeye Arena, as well as a new state-of-the-art aquatics center, a boathouse facility for the UI rowing program and an indoor and outdoor tennis complex. Another $60 million worth of improvements are underway in the form of the two phase football training center project and an indoor golf performance facility. In late summer 2011, the UI completed a $47 million revitalization of CarverHawkeye Arena. That project included the construction of a practice facility for men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball, a 10,000-square-foot strength training and cardiovascular center, and an expansion to the Dan Gable Wrestling Complex, in addition to new locker room and support facilities for men’s and women’s basketball, wrestling and volleyball programs, and office space for the majority of Iowa administrative and coaching staffs. The Carver project included the installation of a statue of Gable at the facility’s main entrance. That project was completed in time for the thousands of fans of the sport of wrestling to enjoy while attending the 2012 USA Wrestling Olympic Team Trials. Phase I of a two-phase project for the UI football program was completed in August,
PA G E 2 2
IOWA WOMENS GOLF 2012. Phase I includes the new indoor practice facility for Coach Kirk Ferentz’ program that has competed on 10 bowl games over the past 11 seasons. Phase II includes construction of the new Iowa Football Operations Center, which will include new team locker rooms, team meeting rooms, athletic medical training space, video operations, and coaches offices and meeting rooms. Funded entirely through private support and revenue generated by the UI Athletics Department, the project is an important next phase of the master facilities plan for Hawkeye football. It will be constructed adjacent to the Ron and Margaret Kenyon Outdoor Practice Facility, immediately west of Kinnick Stadium and will be connected to the new indoor practice facility. The 2010-11 season marked the first for the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams in the UI’s $69 million Campus Recreation and Wellness Center. The Hawkeyes hosted the 2012 Big Ten Championships and the UI men’s squad responded by earning its highest Big Ten finish in 15 seasons. Another of the latest additions to the facilities available to the UI’s student-athletes is the Varsity Golf Complex practice facility for the men’s and women’s golf programs. Located at the southern edge of the UI’s award-winning Finkbine Golf Course, the facility is expected to be completed for use this winter. It will provide the Hawkeyes a state-of-the-art facility that offers the opportunity for year-round training and practice. Barta’s involvement in the UI campus community extends beyond intercollegiate athletics. He is a member of the President’s Cabinet, comprised of vice presidents and other campus leaders, that provide counsel to UI President Sally Mason. That group was instrumental in the UI’s response to record-setting flooding that besieged the campus and the Iowa City and Coralville community in June 2008. Barta also represents the UI and the Hawkeyes at the conference and national level. During his first six years at the UI, he has participated in the creation and implementation of the Big Ten Network, the expansion of the Big Ten Conference and realignment of athletics conferences nationally, and the Big Ten’s postseason bowl game agreements that were successfully implemented in 2010. Nationally, Barta remains active in the Division IA Athletics Directors Association, the National Association of College Directors of Athletics, and currently serves on the NCAA Football Committee Board of Directors. Barta often suggests to his staff that “Hope is not a strategy,” which is why he is currently overseeing a comprehensive review of the strategic plan for the UI Athletics Department and has worked with the UI’s leadership on a long-term financial plan. Another favorite saying of his is, “Vision without resources is irrelevant.” Over the course of his career he has been directly involved in raising hundreds of millions of dollars in support of intercollegiate athletics. This has remained a primary focus during his tenure at Iowa, where private support for the Hawkeyes continues to flourish despite a challenging economy.
G A R Y B A R TA B I O Under Barta’s leadership –¬ and thanks to a talented athletics development staff – the UI has seen year-over-year improvement in annual giving in spite of the difficult economic environment. In addition, under Barta’s direction, the UI generated more than $20 million of philanthropic and corporate sponsorship support for the revitalization of Carver-Hawkeye Arena and has already surpassed that level of support for the current football projects. The UI also generated the $2 million in private support necessary to fully fund the Hawkeyes’ new practice facility for its men’s and women’s golf programs. As the director of athletics at the University of Wyoming for three years, seven different UW coaches were named Mountain West Conference Coach of the Year. He also spearheaded a fund-raising effort that netted the Cowboy athletics program $11 million in private support and $11 million in matching state fund. As the senior associate athletics director at the University of Washington, he directed the “Campaign for the Student-Athlete,” was a participant in the design, construction and/or renovation of several UW athletics facilities, including Bank of America Arena and the Dempsey Indoor Practice Facility. In addition to almost doubling the amount of annual private support received by UW, Barta also managed the department’s external relations division, a task that included corporate sponsorship and radio contracts. His responsibilities at Washington expanded over time to include hiring of coaching and administrative staff, and the day-to-day oversight of several Huskie sport teams. The roots of his development experience extend to his first two positions: director of athletics development and external relations at the University of Northern Iowa and director of development at his alma mater, North Dakota State University. Barta earned a Bachelor of Science degree in mass communication and broadcast journalism from NDSU in 1987. He was an option quarterback for Bison football squads that won the Division II NCAA National Championship in 1983, 1985 and 1986. Barta, and his wife, Connie, have a son, Luke (14) and a daughter, Madison (12). He was born Sept. 4, 1963, in Minneapolis.

“Iowa City is one of the great college campuses in the country. I love coming to Iowa City!”
Some universities offer the large city atmosphere. Others offer the college town experience. The University of Iowa is uniquely situated to offer student athletes the very best of both of these different worlds.
Once the state capital, Iowa City is considered one of the truly great college towns in America. The city swells with excitement on game day when nearly 16,000 Hawkeye fans from across the state and Midwest converge on Carver-Hawkeye Arena to cheer the Hawkeyes to another victory. Iowa City’s downtown area is alive and thriving. Restaurants, shops and sidewalk cafes face onto pedestrian malls full of people watchers, street entertainers and food vendors. Attractive in size and friendliness, Iowa City is big in the sense that it offers all the advantages and conveniences of much larger metropolitan areas like summer and permanent employment opportunities, live entertainment and concerts, fine dining and shopping, industry and commerce. Iowa City is located in the heart of eastern Iowa, within easy driving distance of several major Midwestern cities including the state capital, Des Moines, as well as Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Minneapolis and Milwaukee.
“Iowa City is unlike any other place in the state, both because of its regional beauty and because of its independent, serendipitous spirit. There’s nothing like feeling the crisp air as one tours the Big Ten campus, just as there’s no other feeling like walking the shores along Lake MacBride, north of town. This is an ideal location for a weekend trip filled with sights, sounds, shopping and plenty of activities on any given weekend.” If there is a star in Iowa, Iowa City is it.” DES MOINES SUNDAY REGISTER PA G GE E2 1 6 PA

C OT NH SE I D U ENRI VTEHRES ICTOY MOMF UI N O IW TA Y CONSIDER THE OPPORTUNITY FOR A QUALITY EDUCATION A quality education is one of the highest priorities at the University of Iowa. Just over 90 percent of Johnson County residents have graduated from high school, and in Iowa City nearly half of all residents have earned bachelor’s degrees. In fact, census statistics indicate Johnson County is the 10th “smartest” county in the nation, based on percentage of residents holding bachelor’s degrees. The University of Iowa represents a strong presence in the community while enhancing the quality of life in Iowa City. Your aspiration may be a career in medicine, law or education. Regardless of the specific career field, it’s important to identify the college baseball program that places a high priority on academics and allows you to take full advantage of the tremendous educational opportunities available. At the University of Iowa, student-athletes learn quickly that academic success is the highest priority.
ATHLETICS AND ACADEMICS At The University of Iowa, a strong relationship has been developed between athletics and academics, where coaches and athletes work hand-in-hand with academic deans and professors, assuring the student-athlete the best possible opportunities to excel in the classroom and in athletics. From the first visit for any prospective student-athlete, to the completion of their academic and athletic career at Iowa, academic personnel play a large role in the career of Hawkeye student-athletes. Beginning with the on-campus visits, student-athletes are introduced to professors in their selected field of study, and are able to establish a relationship and develop an understanding of the academic setting in which they will be involved.

When a student-athlete considers his future, he should consider prospects beyond baseball. He should consider where he wants to be five, ten, fifteen years from today, and the best course of action for getting there. Also, he should decide early on to commit to excellence in every challenge undertaken. Without a doubt, the men and women listed here took time to consider their future and the ways to get there. These former University of Iowa undergraduates have gone on to become leaders in their chosen fields. They also pursued their academic studies as strongly as the Iowa Hawkeyes go after a loose ball or rebound. BUSINESS Leland C. Adams Former president, Amoco Production Co. B.J.

THE HAWKEYE NICKNAME The University of Iowa borrowed its athletic nickname from the state of Iowa many years ago. The name Hawkeye was originally the name of the hero in the fictional novel, The Last of the Mohicans, written by James Fenimore Cooper. Cooper had the Delaware Indians bestow the name on a white scout who lived with them. In 1838, 12 years after the book was published, people in the territory of Iowa acquired the nickname, chiefly through the efforts of Judge David Rorer of Burlington and James Edwards of Fort Madison. Edwards, editor of the Fort Madison Patriot, moved his paper to Burlington in 1843 and renamed it the Burlington Hawkeye. The two men continued their campaign to popularize the name, and territorial officials eventually gave it their formal approval. Herky The Hawkeye
The Hawkeye nickname gained a tangible symbol in 1948 when a cartoon character, later to be named Herky the Hawkeye was hatched. The creator was Richard Spencer III, instructor of journalism at Iowa. The impish Hawk was an immediate hit and acquired a name through a statewide contest staged by the athletic department. John Franklin, a Belle Plaine alumnus, was the man who suggested Herky. Since his birth more than 45 years ago, Herky has symbolized Iowa athletics and epitomized University life. He even donned a military uniform during the Korean War and became the insignia of the 124th Fighter Squadron. During the mid-1950s, Herky came to life at a football game as the Iowa mascot. Since that time, Herky has been a familiar figure at Iowa athletics events.
