GoAirForceFalcons.com | 2011 Air Force Track and Field Media Guide

During the 2011 season, our vision for the Air Force Academy Track and Field program has never been clearer -- ‘to develop highly competitive men’s and women’s track and field teams which annually contend for the Mountain West Conference title; insisting on a total commitment to academic and military goals; unwavering compliance with institutional, conference and NCAA guidelines, whose trademarks are an image of complete class and unquestioned integrity.’ Our strategy and tactics to realize this vision is simple -- ‘to recruit the highest quality student-athletes in the United States, and to develop those in our program to improve and progress from week to week, month to month and year to year, into conference championship-caliber and NCAA championship-qualifying performers.’ We trust you’ll see that we are committed to excellence in athletics with this 2011 Media Guide. Our traditions, our coaching staff, our facilities, our schedule and the administrative and financial support we receive are among the best in NCAA Division I athletics. We hope you will recognize that the Air Force Academy is characterized not only by its athletic achievements, but also by its sound foundation of academic leadership and character development. The motto - “Integrity first, service before self and excellence in all we do” -- is truly believed in by each member of our administration, team, and coaching staff.

The team and coaches welcome you to another exciting season of Air Force Track and Field and we express our appreciation to the Falcons’ many friends, students and alumni for your support. Together, we are a part of the great Air Force tradition and each of us plays an important role in the future success of the Air Force Academy Track and Field program. Sincerely,

Ralph Lindeman Air Force Head Track and Field Coach

LETTER FROM COACH LINDEMAN

Under the leadership of our athletic department personnel, the future for this program continues to be promising. Their vision, understanding and dedication will allow Air Force Track and Field to grow and mature to one of the premier programs in the country.

2011 TEAM INFORMATION | MEET THE FALCONS | SEASON REVIEW | PROGRAM HISTORY | AIR FORCE ACADEMY

Dear Friends of Air Force Track and Field,


2011 INDOOR HIGHLIGHTS

At the 2011 NCAA Track and Field Championships, JUSTIN TYNER earned first-team All-America status following a fifth-place finish in the 3000-meter run and teamed with TYLER STANLEY, ANTHONY DELGADO and NICK WHITE for second-team accolades in the distance medley relay behind a ninth-place finish. Tyner becomes the third member of the men’s team to earn indoor All-America honors in back-to-back years – and the first to do so in different events. The relay team became the Falcons’ first Division I relay team to earn All-America status – and the first at any division since the women’s 1600-meter relay team claimed Division II honors in 1984. After coaching the men’s team to their best-ever indoor finish at the Mountain West Conference Championships, RALPH LINDEMAN was voted as the 2011 MWC Men’s Coach of the Year. The Falcons placed second with 122 points.

MORGAN MOSBY broke the program’s 30-year-old record in the 1000-meter run at the adidas Classic on Jan. 22, as she crossed the finish line in a career-best time of 2:54.62.

Backed by conference titles in the 3000- and 5000-meter races, JUSTIN TYNER claimed the conference’s High Point award with 20 points, sharing the honor with Leif Arrhenius of BYU, who took first in the shot put and weight throw.

TYLER STANLEY broke the program’s 600-meter standard at the New Mexico Classic and Combined Meet on Feb. 4, as he crossed the finish line in a USAFA record time of 1:19.52.

The distance medley relay team of TYLER STANLEY, ANTHONY DELGADO, NICK WHITE and JUSTIN TYNER shattered the Academy record by nearly nine seconds at the Alex Wilson Invitational on Mar. 4. With a time of 9:32.06, the quartet crushed the previous mark that had stood since 2004, while posting the 10th-fastest time in the nation.

Air Force claimed its first-ever MWC title in the 4x400-meter relay when MANNY SMITH, ANTHONY DELGADO, CORY ENGEL and CHRIS SEVERINO clocked a combined time of 3:12.79 – the fourth-fastest time in Academy history – to hold off a late charge from BYU during the final event of the conference championships on Feb. 26.

Tyner, who claimed the 5000-meter title on Friday with a championship meet record time of 14:13.33, successfully defended his 3000-meter title on Saturday with another championship meet record time of 8:16.72.

CALE SIMMONS was named the Mountain West Conference Athlete of the Week on two occasions in 2011. He first claimed the honor on Jan. 17 after winning the pole vault (16’6¾”), before earning it again on Feb. 28 after becoming the 12th vaulter in program history to clear the 17-foot bar (17’2¾”).

On Feb. 4, ROBERT DRYE broke his own Academy record in the weight throw at the New Mexico Classic and Combined Meet. Drye threw 62’3” to better his previous program standard by over one foot and improve the Academy’s threeyear-old Junior Class Record by over two feet.

Seven individuals and one relay team earned all-conference honors at the MWC Championships, after finishing within the top three of their respective events. JUSTIN TYNER (3000-meter run, 5000-meter run); ROBERT DRYE (shot put) NOAH PALICIA (heptathlon), CHRIS SEVERINO (400-meter dash), MICHAEL TIBBS (heptathlon), CALE SIMMONS (pole vault) and JIM WALMSLEY (5000-meter run) earned individual all-conference honors, while Severino, MANNY SMITH, ANTHONY DELGADO and CORY ENGEL received all-league recognition on the 4x400-meter relay team.

MEET THE FALCONS


RALPH LINDEMAN Head Coach Combined Events 22nd Season Arizona State (1973)

Ralph Lindeman, an eight-time conference coach of the year, is in his 22nd season at the helm of the Air Force track and field team.

As the chairman of the Hurdle sub-committee for USATF’s Men’s Development Committee, he coordinated video analysis of all hurdle races at USA Championships and Olympic Trials and managed a series of mini-camps for the elite U.S. male hurdlers at San Diego’s Olympic Training Center that ran annually from 1993 to 2000.

He is well-known throughout the international track and field community and holds many distinctions from his long involvement with both the Olympic sport and the Academy’s athletic program. From the very first day he stepped onto the track at the Academy in 1989, the Falcons have benefited from Lindeman’s leadership and his love of coaching.

HEAD COACH RALPH LINDEMAN

AIR FORCE ACADEMY | PROGRAM HISTORY | SEASON REVIEW | MEET THE FALCONS | 2011 TEAM INFORMATION

2011 Air Force Track and Field Media Guide | GoAirForceFalcons.com

He has also worked on the coaching staff for the United States men’s team at the 1992 World Junior Championships and the “West Team” at the 1987 United States Olympic Festival.

Over his tenure, he has earned numerous distinctions and honors. Lindeman is a seven-time conference Coach of the Year and the 2001 NCAA Mountain Region Men’s Outdoor Coach of the Year.

Lindeman first became excited about track and field as a seventh grader at Phoenix Christian Grade School in Arizona, when his physical education teacher took his class to a collegiate track dual-meet featuring Arizona State and New Mexico. Later, the influences of his high school track coaches, according to Lindeman, “unknowingly inspired me to pursue coaching.”

He has guided the men’s program to 14 top-three finishes during the Mountain West Conference indoor and outdoor seasons, including three runner-up positions. He has watched the women’s program break numerous Academy records and become a significant force in the league.

Lindeman’s coaching career began in 1973, when he was an assistant coach at Carl Hayden High School in Phoenix, Ariz., working with the football and track teams. From there, he became an assistant track coach at Glendale High School in Glendale, Ariz., working under Ken France, a legend in the Arizona coaching ranks. He also served as the head coach for the cross country and track teams during his five-year tenure at Glendale.

His work is not limited to the boundaries of the Academy. Most recently, Lindeman served as an assistant coach for the U.S. Men’s Track & Field Team that participated in the 2007 World Championships in Osaka, Japan. Previously he was the jumps, pole vault and decathlon coach for the U.S. Men’s Track & Field Team at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. That team collected 19 medals - including two Gold and five Silver medals from Lindeman-coached athletes - for the squad’s highest medal count since the 1992 Games in Barcelona.

Following a stint as the boys’ track and cross country coach at Westwood High School in Mesa, Ariz., Lindeman moved up to the collegiate ranks, becoming an assistant track coach at Arizona State, coaching the field events for the men’s team. The 1982 Sun Devil team won Arizona State’s first-ever PAC-10 title in track and field.

He also served as an advisor to the South Korean team at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul and was a scheduling manager for the 1996 Games in Atlanta. In addition to his work with the Olympic Games, Lindeman has also served as the head men’s coach for the 2001 World University Games, 1999 Pan American Games and the “North Team” at the 1993 U.S. Olympic Festival.

In 1982, Lindeman went to the University of Arizona as an assistant coach of the men’s and women’s teams, overseeing the sprints, hurdles and jumps. Both the men’s and women’s teams placed in the top 10 at the 1984 NCAA Championships. Lindeman credits Dave Murray at the University of Arizona for giving him his first full-time job at the university level and teaching him about coaching collegiate athletes. For his 11 years coaching within the state of Arizona, Lindeman was inducted into the Arizona Track Coaches Association’s Hall of Fame as a member of the Class of 2009. Lindeman left Arizona in 1984, when he was named the head coach at Long Beach State University. During his five years there, he took the men’s and women’s track and field teams, as well as the cross country teams, to new heights in the Big West Conference. He remained with the 49ers until his appointment at Air Force. In 1989, Lindeman came to the Air Force Academy as the head coach of the men’s and women’s track and field team, as well as the head coach of the Falcons’ men’s cross country program.

GoAirForceFalcons.com | 2011 Air Force Track and Field Media Guide Lindeman’s bio, continued...

The team’s second-place finish at the regional championships remains the best finish ever by an Air Force cross country team, while its placing at the national meet is the program’s second-best finish since 1967. Since Lindeman’s arrival at the Air Force Academy, the Falcons have accounted for 31 WAC champions and 65 Mountain West Conference champions. In addition, the men have rewritten 39 Academy records, while the women have displaced 34. Lindeman-coached Air Force teams have produced two national champions, including Callie Calhoun, who earned five titles during her career. His teams have also garnered 42 All-America selections. Lindeman has a simple coaching philosophy which is summed up in the USAFA core values - “Integrity first. Service before self. Excellence in all we do”. He believes that his role as the head coach is to make sure that the program provides a framework in which the cadet-athletes can achieve excellence, not only athletically, but also academically and militarily. In addition to his coaching duties, he has been a featured speaker at coaching clinics in 25 states and four countries, while writing articles that have been published in three journals and chapters of the textbooks “Hurdles: Theory and Technique” and the “USA Track and Field Coaching Manual” (1999 edition).

He has also sat on the men’s hurdle development committee during four Olympic quadrennials, holding the chairman’s position from 1993-2000. In addition, he has served on the NCAA Track and Field Rules Committee, acting as the chairman for the 2000 outdoor championships and was the president of the U.S. Track and Field Coaches Association (Division I Coaches) from 2000-03. Lindeman sees his involvement with these organizations as a way to not only make a significant improvement to the sport of collegiate track and field, but to extend benefits to the development of the Air Force program. Lindeman graduated in 1973 from Arizona State University with a bachelor’s degree in physical education. He went on to complete a master’s degree in exercise science from ASU in 1976. He has been married to his wife, Cindy, for the past 39 years. Cindy has been a fixture as a teacher at Springs Community Church Preschool for many years.

COACHING AWARDS

As the cross country mentor, he guided the Falcons to their first-ever conference championship, when they claimed the 1991 Western Athletic Conference championship. Led by two-time WAC Champion, Chris Nelson, Lindeman’s 1991 team went on to place second at the regional meet and 14th at the NCAA Cross Country Championships.


Q&A WITH COACH LINDEMAN What is the “Lindeman Philosophy”? “I don’t think my position is just coaching the men’s and women’s track teams. My responsibility is to provide leadership for the entire program - that means not only ensuring athletic success, but success in the other mission elements as well. I’ve always thought of myself first and foremost as a teacher, and that’s how I started out in this profession - teaching biology and coaching at the high school level. I’m now a teacher who spends up to three hours every day with the cadet-athletes I work with. I like to think I mentor those cadet-athletes in everything I teach from track and field technique and training to character development and leadership.”

What is your vision for the program? “Our vision is to develop highly competitive men’s and women’s track and field and cross country teams which annually contend for the conference title, while insisting on a total commitment to academic and military goals, unwavering compliance with institutional and NCAA guidelines; and whose trademarks are an image of complete class and unquestioned integrity.” What do you look for when recruiting athletes? “The first task is to identify high school juniors and seniors who can run fast, jump high and throw far. Then, we screen the candidates for their academic credentials, character and citizenship. Finally, our challenge is to sell the prospects on a service academy education and a career in the U.S. Air Force.”

Who do you look to as a mentor? “I get much of my inspiration and motivation from my peers - like Scott Irving from our own staff, or rivals like Ron Mann at Louisville, Rick McGuire at Missouri or John McNichols at Indiana State - I respect these guys and value their opinions. Also, my wife, Cindy, is the most loving and thoughtful person I’ve ever been around. She challenges me to be the same - in fact, I guess I have to say that she is my “mentor” in addition to being my best friend.”

What are your most memorable coaching experiences? “The most memorable experiences are of the teams that achieved way beyond their potential. This would include the 2004 men’s team which went into the final event of the Mountain West Conference Indoor Championships within three points of both eventual champion, BYU, and runner-up, Colorado State. Then, there was our 1995 men’s team which was the runner-up in the indoor conference championships - just three and half points behind BYU. At the time, that was the closest any team had come to BYU in six years - that was exciting! And I will never forget the 1991 cross country team that won the Air Force Academy’s first-ever WAC Championship and then placed 14th in the NCAA Championships. I love scoring meets, particularly conference championship meets. They’re all memorable when I can look back and identify both individual and team successes.”

What do you love about being a coach at the Academy? “I love the caliber of the young men and young women that I get to work with. They are well-rounded individuals who have higher priorities than athletics, but who are just as committed to excellence as any other highly successful competitors.”

Associate Head Coach Throws 12th Season Willamette (1973)

Scott Irving joined the Air Force staff in 1999 as the coach of the field events. He was promoted to the associate head coach prior to the start of the 2008 season. His primary responsibilities include recruiting for field events and coaching the Falcons’ throwing program.

During the 2007 season, Irving coached senior Olivia Korte to a new Academy record and conference title in the discus throw, as well as a new Mountain West Conference championship-meet record in that event. Korte and Neubauer teamed up to rewrite the program’s shot put records several times throughout the course of the season, while Neubauer capped off an impressive freshman campaign with a USTF Junior National title in the shot put. With Neubauer’s MWC titles in the indoor shot put, weight throw, outdoor shot put and discus throw, Korte’s crown in the discus throw, Pounds’ three titles in the javelin, Dominique Boivin’s 2003 discus title, and Ana-Maria Ortega’s 2001 title in the pole vault, Irving now claims 10 of Air Force’s female Mountain West Conference champions. Since 2001, he has coached 19 MWC champions and 17 MWC runners-up during the indoor and outdoor seasons for the Falcons’ men’s and women’s track and field teams.

His throwers had a stellar 2010 season, accounting for five Mountain West Conference titles, an All-America certificate and four Academy records. Neubauer, who won conference titles in the indoor shot put, weight throw, outdoor shot put and discus throw, earned All-America status in the discus throw for the second straight year and set Academy records in the indoor and outdoor shot put, weight throw and hammer throw. Katie Weber won the javelin throw at the conference meet, as Air Force accounted for five of the six throwing titles at the combined conference championships.

In 2003, Jocelyn Dooley became the Academy’s first female NCAA Division I regional qualifier. Since that time, Irving’s throwers have accounted for 29 of the 40 female qualifiers to the NCAA Regional meet (now the NCAA Preliminary Round). And of the 11 times Falcons have advanced to the national championship meet in all women’s sports at the Academy, Irving has coached nine (Pounds three times, Korte twice, Dooley and Neubauer three times).

Highlighted by three meet records, Neubauer won four event titles at the Military Championships, leading the women to their first-ever team championship at the all-service academy meet.

Irving coached two MWC champions in 2002, including freshman pole vaulter Paul Gensic, who was ranked second in the NCAA among freshmen. Tim Fritz set a championship-meet and MWC all-time record on his way to the first of two javelin titles. In 2007, Matt Schwandt’s first-place finish in the javelin was the Falcons’ seventh conference championship in that event over an eight-year span.

On the men’s side, Robert Drye set an Academy record in the weight throw, while Conner Van Fossen collected all-conference honors in the javelin throw. The 2009 season was also an impressive year for Irving-coached athletes. Behind top-eight finishes in the shot put and discus throw at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, Neubauer became the Falcons’ first female athlete ever to earn multiple All-America honors at the Division I level. Neubauer, who scored for Air Force in all four throwing events at the Mountain West Conference Outdoor Championships and earned all-conference accolades in the shot put and discus throw, set Academy records in the indoor and outdoor shot put, as well as the hammer throw (in just her first year throwing that apparatus).

Irving brought impressive credentials to the Academy. Countless champions in four leagues, over 35 All-Americans, eight national champions, numerous national team members and two Olympians have developed under his tutelage. He helped build two NCAA championship programs at Oregon (1977-83) and Florida (1983-89). Three records for Irving-coached athletes stand at Oregon, and Florida throwers earned five of the top seven places in the women’s discus throw at the 1989 SEC championships, including the champion and runner-up.

Drye and Paige Blackburn earned all-conference accolades in the hammer throw and javelin throw, respectively, at the 2009 conference championships, while 16 incursions were made to the program’s all-time record book in the throwing events. In addition, Neubauer, Drye and Blackburn were three of the seven Air Force throwers to compete at the NCAA Regional Championships.

From 1989-93, Irving guided Illinois’ men’s team back to the conference title, as he built the strongest field events program in the Big Ten. At Illinois, he coached three Big Ten triple jump champions, including 1991 Big Ten Medal of Honor winner, GTE Academic All-American and NCAA outdoor AllAmerican Aaron Mobarak. Another Irving-coached athlete, JD Teach, was a fivetime conference shot put champion and NCAA All-American.

For his success, Irving has been honored as the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Division I Mountain Region Women’s Outdoor Assistant Coach of the Year in 2009 and 2010. He is the first Air Force coach to be honored in this capacity and third overall connected to the throws program, joining Neubauer (Mountain Region Outdoor Female Field Athlete of the Year, 2010) and Dana Pounds (Mountain Region Outdoor Female Field Athlete of the Year, 2006).

Records by Irving’s javelin throwers still stand in five programs where he has coached (Atlantic Coast Conference, Big Ten Conference, Southeastern Conference, Pac-10 Conference, Mountain West Conference).

ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH SCOTT IRVING

In 13 seasons, Irving has developed the Academy throwers into one of the top throwing programs, not only in the Mountain West Conference, but nationally as well, on both the NCAA and USATF championship scenes. Under Irving’s guidance, program records have been rewritten countless times in every field event. In addition, the throwers have continued to increase point production at the MWC Championships. In fact, the women’s throwing team, which includes over two-thirds of the program’s all-MWC selections, has scored over half of the team points at the conference championships every year since 2003.

A recipient of two master’s degrees (Art History from Northwestern in 1977 and Physical Education from Oregon in 1979), the 1973 Willamette University graduate places the pursuit of academic excellence as an utmost priority. Irving’s throwers at Oregon annually dotted the dean’s list, while his throwers at Florida made the All-SEC academic team 40 times. Since joining the Academy, his athletes have earned academic allconference honors on over 50 occasions.

Assistant Coach Distances and Middle Distances Third Season James Madison (1992)

Juli Benson is in her third season as an assistant coach for the Air Force track and field team. In addition to her duties coaching the Falcons’ middle distance and distance runners, Benson is the head coach for the Academy’s cross country program, where she was named the MWC Coach of the Year in 2010.

In his first season with the Falcons (2008), Steffan coached the pole vault program to a record-setting season. Nick Frawley became the program’s 21st outdoor All-American, after placing second at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. He also won the Mountain West Conference title at the indoor championships, while claiming all-conference honors in the outdoor meet. On the women’s side, Melissa Beerse rewrote both the indoor and outdoor records, while earning all-conference honors during the indoor season. Three other Falcons made their mark on the women’s top-10 lists, so Steffan-coached athletes hold the top three spots in the indoor pole vault and the top two spots in the outdoor pole vault. In addition, both Frawley and Beerse participated in the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships. In 2009, the Steffan-coached pole vault team exceeded its success from his first season. Frawley picked up a pair of All-America certificates, tying for seventh at the NCAA Indoor Championships and placing seventh outright at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. Frawley, who was named the USTFCCCA Division I Mountain Region Indoor Male Field Athlete of the Year, set the Academy’s indoor pole vault mark at 18’1”. On the women’s side, a pair of Falcons’ earned all-conference accolades, as Rachel Simmons (indoor) and Kimber Shealy (outdoor) each finished third at their respective championship meets. Shealy, who was named to the USTFCCCA All-Academic Team, moved into the top-three in the program’s all-time record book, including a tie for second outdoors. Last year, Steffan’s athletes continued to have unprecedented success, concluding with another All-America honor for Frawley. Following a third-place finish at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, Frawley became the most-decorated Division I All-American, with four citations. The Falcons claimed the top two finishes at the indoor conference championship, as Frawley won his third career title and freshman Chase Cooper placed second. The program’s top-10 list received a major revamp for the third straight year, as seven top heights in men’s and women’s history were accounted for. Shealy, who was named to the USTFCCCA All-Academic Team for the second straight year, became just the second member of the women’s team to clear the 13-foot bar during the indoor season. Steffan joined the Falcons’ program after spending seven years at the University of New Mexico, where he coached the pole vault and men’s multi-event athletes. While with the Lobos, Steffan rebuilt the men’s and women’s pole vault program. Under his watch, three UNM pole vaulters competed at the NCAA Championships, while at least three qualified for the regional championships during each of his last four years. Also during that time, eight Lobos earned all-conference honors. Steffan coached former Lobo Robert Caldwell to All-America status, in addition to leading Derek Mackel to the NCAA Midwest Regional record of 18’1”. In addition to his work with the pole vault team, Steffan also improved the Lobos’ decathlon and heptathlon teams. He guided New Mexico to two decathlon titles, as well as the first MWC heptathlon crown. Coaching multiple decathlon finalists, Steffan has also coached six all-conference honorees in the multi-events and two NCAA Championship participants. Prior to joining the UNM staff, Steffan spent three years at Wichita State University. While there, he coached All-Americans in the pole vault, triple jump and heptathlon. His women’s pole vault team finished first, second and third at the Missouri Valley Conference championships during each of his three years. Steffan began his collegiate coaching career at the University of Virginia in 1991. During his six years at Virginia, he coached All-American athletes in the high jump, heptathlon, decathlon, 400-meter hurdles and long jump. He also guided 22 Atlantic Coast Conference champions. An all-Western Athletic Conference decathlete for New Mexico, Steffan graduated from the school in 1991 with a bachelor’s degree in education. A native of Aztec, N.M., Steffan and his wife, Joanne, have two young sons Jake, who is four, and Trey, who was born in May 2009.

Maj Jason Zarb-Cousin is entering his first season the director of operations for the Air Force track and field program, after spending one season working with the Falcons’ distance runners. Zarb-Cousin, a 1999 graduate of the Air Force Academy, returned to his alma mater in 2009 after spending the past four seasons as an assistant cross country and track coach at Loyola Marymount University, while stationed at Los Angeles Air Force Base. During his time with the Lions, the women’s cross country team earned three top-three finishes at the West Coast Conference Championships and finished within the top-15 at three straight NCAA Regional Championship meets. The women’s team also produced two individuals who made multiple NCAA national championship appearances in both cross country and track. In 2008, his last season at Loyola Marymount, the men’s cross country picked up a second-place finish at the WCC Championships – the squad’s highest finish since 1981 – and a 16th-place finish at the regional championships. Prior to his stint at LMU, he assisted the cross country and track teams at Fort Collins HS in Fort Collins, Colo., including the nationally ranked boys’ cross country team that won the 2004 5A state title. During his tenure at FCHS, both the boys’ and girls’ cross country teams finished within the top three at the state championships. ZarbCousin also coached the boys’ 4x800-meter relay team to the 2005 state title and the girls’ 4x800-meter relay teams to a pair of second-place finishes at the state meet. A native of Colorado Springs, Zarb-Cousin was a letterwinner for the Falcons’ track team as a middle distance runner.

Graf joined the Academy staff after spending six years as the assistant track coach at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs. Prior to his appointment at UCCS, Graf spent 25 years coaching at the high school level, including 18 years at Wasson High School in Colorado Springs. He has also coached several athletes in the Army’s World Class Athlete program and at the 2008 Olympic Trials. During his career, Graf coached a state championship boys’ team and a state champion or place-finisher in 17 of 18 track events. He has been honored as the Coach of the Year four times, was named the Junior Achievement “Economics Teacher of the Year” for the state of Colorado and the Colorado High School Coaches Association Teacher/Coach of the Year. He is a master USA Track and Field official and has been the head starter for Air Force track meets over the past 20 years. Graf has also served as the head starter at the Colorado state meet. He has worked at two Olympic Games and four Olympic Trials, as well as numerous national meets. Graf has served as the president and executive secretary of the Colorado High School Coaches Association. He is also a member of the USA Track and Field Officials Association. Graf received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Northern Colorado and went on to obtain a master’s degree from Adams State College, where he worked as a graduate assistant for the cross country and track programs. A retired activities director from the Woodland Park School District, Graf and his wife Suzie live at Blue Mountain Ranch, which is an activities and sports camp that was founded by Suzie’s parents in 1946. They have two sons, David and Tim.

Mark Stanforth returns to the Air Force track and field program in his first season as a volunteer coach. Stanforth, who retired in 2006 after serving 15 years as the head coach of the cross country and associate head coach of the track and field team, will assist the current Falcons’ middle distance and distance runners. The highlights for the men’s cross country program during Stanforth’s 15 years include three top-16 NCAA finishes between 2000 and 2004, topped by an eighthplace finish in 2003. When the Falcons qualified for the NCAA Division I championship in 2000, it marked a unique coaching distinction for Stanforth - his teams had qualified for the national cross country championship in every collegiate division: NJCAA, NAIA, NCAA Divisions I, II and III. The Falcons won three conference championships, were conference runners-up six times and finished outside the top three only once in that 15 year span. Stanforth was selected by his peers as the conference coach of the year four times. Stanforth led the women’s cross country team during their transition from NCAA Division II to Division I. In his first four years, the Falcon women competed in Division II and qualified for the NCAA championships each year with program-high finishes of sixth place in both 1992 and 1995. In 1996, the Academy women’s programs moved to Division I. In 1999, the Falcons started a string of five consecutive third-place MWC conference finishes, the only upper division finishes by any Falcon women’s program in Division I. Individually, athletes with whom Stanforth worked with earned All-America honors 10 times in track and field and six times in cross country. He coached 26 individual conference champions on the track and one in cross country. His teams also earned national all-academic honors nine times. Prior to coaching at the Academy, Stanforth coached one year at his alma mater, the University of South Dakota/Springfield, seven years at Glendale (Ariz.) Community College and five years at the University of California, San Diego, in addition to one year as a graduate assistant at Northern State (S.D.) University. Stanforth and his wife, Pat, have two sons, Nicholas and Daniel.

Strength Coach

Athletic Trainer

Col Martin France Officer Rep.

In his ninth year as a volunteer coach (sprints) with the Falcons, Ron White brings a diverse coaching background to the Air Force track and field program.

After his retirement from the Air Force, White resumed his coaching career within the Colorado Public Schools System. He coached several of the best sprinters, hurdlers and middle distance runners in the state, including an undefeated two-time 110-meter high hurdles state champion and record holder.

Lt Ben Garland Strength Coach

Jeff Kipp

Valerie Perkin

Strength Coach

Sports Info Director

White began coaching in the USATF Junior Olympics program and was able to coach even more state champions and finalists, which included male and female champions in both hurdle distances, sprinters in the 100-, 200- and 400-meter dashes and middle distance runners in the 1600- and 3200-meters. As a coach for the Junior Olympics, White has guided national champions in the 200-meter dash and 400-meter hurdles, as well as several national top-six 400-meter and 1600-meter relay teams. In over 40 years of coaching, it can be estimated that White has been a coach and mentor to over 75 champions in Colorado and Pennsylvania.

2010 SEASON IN REVIEW


TYNER EARNS ALL-AMERICA HONORS Justin Tyner became the 11th athlete in men’s program history to earn All-America honors at the NCAA Indoor Championships, as he placed third in the 5000-meter run. Clocking an Academy and Mountain West Conference record time of 13:41.26, Tyner was the top American. DID YOU KNOW? Justin Tyner’s third-place finish is the best for an Air Force athlete at the NCAA Indoor Championships since 2005, when Paul Gensic took third in the pole vault. It is also the best finish on the track at the Division I indoor meet since Dan Rojas placed second in the 800-meter run in 1984. MAKING HISTORY Three Falcons were selected to compete at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships – the most for a single championship in program history – as Nick Frawley (pole vault), Sara Neubauer (shot put) and Justin Tyner (500-meter run) were selected to the national indoor meet. BY THE NUMBERS Since 2004, the Falcons have sent seven athletes to the indoor meet a combined 11 times. With his third appearance, Nick Frawley has earned more selections to the NCAA Indoor Championships than any other Falcon in program history.

2010 INDOOR SEASON IN REVIEW

AIR FORCE ACADEMY | PROGRAM HISTORY | SEASON REVIEW | MEET THE FALCONS | 2011 TEAM INFORMATION

2011 Air Force Track and Field Media Guide | GoAirForceFalcons.com

WALMSLEY MOVES UP Jim Walmsley, who had hovered near the NCAA Provisional Mark of the 3000-meter run all season, finally cracked the standard to move up the Academy’s all-time standings on March 6. Clocking a career-best 8:03.58, Walmsley improved his time by five seconds to finish second in the field of 31. He moved into sixth on the program’s all-time list and improved his own Sophomore Class Record. NEUBAUER NOTES Sara Neubauer concluded regular season with an amazingly perfect 9-0 record in the indoor shot put. Competing at the Final Qualifier on March 6, Neubauer won the event with a distance of 52’9¼” – a mark that beat the field by over 16 feet. WHAT A WEEKEND Sara Neubauer picked up a pair of MWC titles at the conference championships. Contributing to over half of the women’s team points, Neubauer won both the shot put and weight throw. She won her first-ever title on Friday, winning the weight throw with a distance of 60’2”. Neubauer returned to the medal podium on Saturday, after a career-best, Academy-record performance of 53’11” in the shot put. Her winning throw marked the sixth time in the eight meets this season that Neubauer has improved the Academy record, while moving into third on the conference’s all-time list. DID YOU KNOW? By winning the shot put and weight throw, Sara Neubauer became the first female to win both MWC throwing titles since Colorado State’s Loree Smith in 2005, and the first overall to win both titles since the Rams’ Nate Heyrman in 2006. TYNER GETS THE GOLD Justin Tyner became the 19th different Air Force athlete to claim a MWC title, winning the 3000-meter run in a time of 8:21.59. Clocking the third-fastest time in championship meet history, Tyner capped off a stellar weekend, which included a record-setting runner-up finish in the 5000-meter run. With time of 13:52.47, Tyner blasted the previous time in that event by nearly seven seconds.

GOING THE DISTANCE Justin Tyner’s victory marked the third straight year that an Air Force runner has won the 3000-meter race. Former Falcon Sean Houseworth claimed back-to-back titles in 2008 and 2009, before Tyner claimed the 2010 medal. FRAWLEY, COOPER STAND ATOP PODIUM With a 17’4” clearance, Nick Frawley claimed the second indoor title of his career and led the Falcons to the top two spots on the medal podium. Frawley, who also won the title at 2008 meet, has now earned all-conference honors in six of seven MWC championships. Chase Cooper earned all-MWC honors with a matching mark, finishing second based on attempts. FANTASTIC FRESHMAN Three members of the Falcons’ youngest class picked up all-conference honors at the MWC Championships on Feb. 25-27. Chase Cooper placed second in the pole vault, with a careerbest clearance of 17’4¾”, while classmate Zach Wood claimed runner-up honors in the high jump with a personal-best height of 6’9”. Wood became the first Air Force high jumper to finish within the top three at a conference meet since Jim Campbell in 2003. Fellow freshman Uzor Udensi edged into medal contention of the 200-meter dash by .01 seconds, becoming the only non-TCU sprinter to finish within the top five. LOOKING TO THE RELAYS Both men’s relay teams earned all-MWC honors, marking the first time since 2002 that both had finished within the top three. Chris Severino, Matt Jones, Bryant Davis and Manuel Smith combined for a time of 3:14.71 to place third in the 4x400-meter relay, while the distance medley relay team of Zach Nordahl, Bryant Davis, Tyler Stanley and James Walmsley finished third in 10:05.76. WHITE IT OUT Cresha White had an outstanding weekend at the MWC championships, tying an Academy record and setting personal-best marks in her other two events. White crossed the finish line of the 60-meter dash semifinals in a time of 7.68, matching the time that Jeri Nelson first set in 1979 and Apryl Ford matched in 1981. She also moved into third on the Academy’s all-time list in both the 200-meter dash (25.54) and long jump (18’5”) over the weekend. KIMBER SHEALY EARNS MWC HONOR Following a career-best performance at Wyoming, Kimber Shealy was named the MWC Athlete of the Week on Feb. 23. The sophomore became the second Air Force female to clear the 13-foot bar in the pole vault, as she recorded a NCAA provisional mark of 13’3½” to move into second on the program’s all-time list. DID YOU KNOW? Kimber Shealy became the fourth Air Force athlete this season to earn the league’s weekly honor, joining Nick Frawley (twice), Sara Neubauer (twice) and Ally Romanko. The six awards set a record for the most such honors in a season. However, the previous high of five, set in 2004, encompassed both the indoor and outdoor seasons. VAULTING TO NEW HEIGHTS The height of 13’3½” that Kimber Shealy recorded at Wyoming’s Robert Shine Invitational is a new meet record, as well as the best clearance ever at War Memorial Field House.

54

CAN’T HAVE A RELEASE WITHOUT THIS Sara Neubauer upped her Academy record in the shot put to 52’11” at the Robert Shine Invitational, marking the fifth time in seven meets that she has rewrote the program and Senior Class record. Neubauer bettered the field to remain unbeaten in the shot put. HIGH JUMP HAPPENINGS After going nine years without an incursion to the women’s high jump alltime standings, two Falcons posted top-10 marks in a span of just six days. Loren Van Rassen’s 5’5” clearance at the RSI on Feb. 19 matched the height that Danielle McCarty first set at the AFI on Feb. 13. ROMANKO EARNS MWC AWARD Ally Romanko claimed her first MWC Athlete of the Week honor on Feb. 16, following a record-setting 800-meter performance at the Husky Classic. Shaving three seconds off of her time, Romanko crossed the finish line in 2:06.91 to win her section. That time, a NCAA provisional mark, is the fourth-fastest in the league this season and ranked 21st in the nation. OH, WHAT A NIGHT Clocking a 5000-meter time of 14:00.20, Justin Tyner crashed into the Academy’s all-time list at the Husky Classic. By cutting 43 seconds off of his previous best time, Tyner recorded the second-fastest mark in program history and debuted in second on the program’s all-time list; less than one second off of the current Academy record. SOPHOMORE DUO SHINE AT HUSKY CLASSIC A pair of sophomores also had a stellar weekend at the Husky Classic. Jim Walmsley easily won the 3000-meter race with a career-best 8:08.02 – a time that bettered the other 30 runners by 14 seconds! With the eighth-best time in Academy history, Walmsley broke Eric Mack’s 1994 Sophomore Class Record. Jon Rock shaved 16 seconds off of his PR at 5000 meters (14:25.73) to move into ninth on the Academy’s all-time list. DOWN GOES A RECORD … AGAIN Sara Neubauer increased her Academy standard in the shot put for the fourth time this year. Hitting 52’6”, Neubauer won the 42-member event at the AFI. Her throw, a three-inch personal improvement, bettered the field by over four feet. It is also the sixth time in as many meets that Neubauer has placed first in the shot put. MOVING ON UP Several members of the Falcons’ women’s team made an impact on the record book at the AF Invitational on Feb. 12-13. Cresha White clocked a career-best time of 7.69 in the 60-meter dash to into a tie for second on the program’s all-time list. Tawny Lambuth matched the fourth-best pole vault clearance in Academy history at 12’5½”, while Danielle McCarty recorded a high bar height of 5’5” to debut at seventh on the program’s all-time list. QUICK FACT Danielle McCarty is the first Air Force female to appear in the high jump top-10 since 2001. MAKING AN IMPACT The men impacted the record book at the Feb. 12-13 meet. Chase Cooper became the ninth pole vaulter to clear the 17-foot bar (17’0¾”), debuting in a tie for fifth on the all-time list. Robert Drye used a 61’1½” in the weight throw to match his program standard, while Kyle Schwochow tossed a shot put 52’11½” to move into ninth.

DID YOU KNOW? Nick Frawley’s MWC Athlete of the Week honor is the fourth of his career. That total is tied for the most-ever by an Air Force athlete. He joins former Falcons Sean Temple and Dana Pounds as the only Air Force athletes to have claimed four weekly awards during their career. WORKING WITH THE WHITEOUT The heptathlon top10 got a big upgrade at the New Mexico Classic. Noah Palicia moved into fifth with a career-best total of 4999. In their heptathlon debuts, freshmen Michael Tibbs (4697, seventh) and Blair O’Bryant (4335, 10th) made an immediate impact on the all-time list.

MORE RECORDS FALL AT NEW MEXICO Sara Neubauer (61’11”) and Robert Drye (61’1½”) rewrote their own respective records in the weight throw on Feb. 6. In addition, Morgan Mosby debuted at sixth in the 800-meter top-10, with a time of 2:16.13. Phaelen French improved her all-time standing in the pentathlon, as she tallied 2, 894 points to move into eighth. OTHER NEWS FROM NEW MEXICO Jeremy Drenckhahn finished fourth in the 3000-meter race at the New Mexico Classic in a career-best 8:40.77. Cale and Rob Simmons cleared matching career-best heights of 16’6¾” to tie with Joel Nolan for fifth in the pole vault. The height cleared by the Simmons twins bettered their previous best by nearly a foot. WEIGHT FOR IT Robert Drye established himself as the Academy’s all-time leader in the weight throw with a winning throw of 60’4½” at the Don Barrett Duals on Jan. 30. The career-best mark broke Kirk Devine’s 2008 Academy record by two inches.

QUITE THE DAY Cresha White had a stellar day at the Don Barrett Duals, accounting for three top-three finishes. The runner-up in the 200-meter dash (25.57), White also placed third in the 60-meter dash (7.72) and long jump (season-best 17’4”), while running a leg of the fifth-place 4x400-meter relay. NEWS FROM THE SUMMIT Four freshmen had strong performances at the Pole Vault Summit. Cale Simmons won his section with a height of 15’7”, while his twin brother Rob finished second with a height of 15’3”. Clearing 16’8¾”, Chase Cooper improved his personal-best height by eight inches to finish second in his section. On the women’s side, Pia Goodman also matched her career-best (10’6”) to place ninth. OFF TO A FAST START Uzor Udensi made quick work of moving up the Academy’s all-time list. In just the third meet of his first season, Udensi has already recorded the seventh-fastest time in program history and is currently just .01 out of the sixth-place spot. NEUBAUER REPEATS AS MWC ATHLETE OF THE WEEK For the second consecutive week, Sara Neubauer was selected as the MWC Athlete of the Week. It is the first time ever that Air Force has taken the league award in back-to-back weeks. Neubauer earned the honor after setting Academy records in the shot put and weight throw. She leads the conference in both events, while ranking 13th nationally in the shot put. NOT TO SOUND LIKE A BROKEN RECORD, BUT Sara Neubauer broke Academy records in the shot put and weigh throw for the third time in as many meets. Neubauer reset her own records at the NWU Invitational, winning both the shot put (51’6¼”) and weight throw (59’7¾”). Less than 24 hours later, she rewrote them again at the adidas Classic, cruising to event titles in both the shot put (52’3¾”) and weight throw (60’1”).

AN ELITE LIST Robert Drye became just the third member of the men’s team to surpass the 60-foot plateau in the weight throw. The sophomore joined Kirk Devine (2008) and Vern Conaway (1992).

CAUTION, FALLING RECORDS In addition to the Academy standards in the shot put and weight throw, two other Academy records fell to the wayside in Nebraska. Ally Romanko smashed a pair of records on the track – including on which had stood for 28 years. At the NWU Invitational, Romanko broke Gail Conway’s 1982 record in the 600-meter run, as she won the race with a time of 1:32.64. She went on to break her own standard in the 800 meters at the adidas Classic, placing second with a record-setting time of 2:09.94.

YOU KNEW THIS WAS COMING Sara Neubauer improved her record in the weight throw for the fourth straight meet, tossing a distance of 61’2” at The Duals. Although her four-week streak of upping the shot put record fell short by a mere two inches, Neubauer improved to 8-0 on the season in the throws.

NOT A BAD DAY, INDEED Five Falcons competed at the Potts Invitational on Jan. 23 and all five left Boulder with a share of an event victory. Chad Liscar placed first in the 200-meter dash, while James Dills, Michael Tibbs, Jacob Ringrose and Blair O’Bryant teamed up to win the 4x400-meter relay.

THROWING AWAY RECORDS Sara Neubauer wasn’t the only one to impact the all-time list in the weight throw at The Duals. In addition to Neubauer’s recordsetting performance, Paige Blackburn improved her sixth-place standing to 52’3¾”, while Christina Burke bettered her ninth-place throw to 49’3”.

IT’S TYNER TIME Justin Tyner won the 1000-meter run (2:27.43) at the NWU Invitational, before earning the fastest time in the mile (4:07.55) at the adidas Classic. His time in the mile, which is seventh on the program’s all-time list, is the second fastest in the conference and ranked 19th in the nation.

FALCONS SWEEP CONFERENCE AWARDS Nick Frawley and Sara Neubauer were named the Mountain West Conference Athletes of the Week on Jan. 19. Frawley cleared a winning height of 17’7” to lead the conference in the pole vault, while Neubauer set Academy records in both the shot put and weight throw. DID YOU KNOW? Nick Frawley and Sara Neubauer’s sweep of the weekly MWC awards marked the second time Air Force has taken both the men’s and women’s awards in the same week. The last time was in 2005 with Paul Gensic and Olivia Korte. Incidentally, like Frawley and Neubauer, Gensic and Korte competed in the pole vault and throws, respectively. TWO EVENTS … TWO RECORDS Just two events into the 2010 season and Sara Neubauer has set two Academy records. In the season-opening Air Force All-Comers Meet, the senior improved her own program standard in the shot put to 50’8”, while setting a new Academy mark in the weight throw at 58’8”.

2011 INDOOR SEASON IN REVIEW

GOING HIGHER AND HIGHER Tawny Lambuth and Bizzy Mellado both cleared the 12-foot bar in the pole vault at the New Mexico Classic. The pair recorded matching heights of 12’1½” to move into fifth on the program’s all-time list. Prior to 2007, only one female pole vaulter had cleared 12-foot plateau … but since then, six Falcons have bested the 12-foot clearance.

VAULTING TO NEW HEIGHTS Joel Nolan cleared a career-best bar of 17’0¾” in the pole vault at the Don Barrett Open. Tying for the fifth-best clearance in Academy history, Nolan became just the eighth Air Force pole vaulter to clear the 17-foot plateau.

FRAWLEY TAKES THIRD Nick Frawley cleared a season-best 17’4½” to finish third in the pole vault at the NCAA Championships. It is the third consecutive year that he has finished among the top eight and the second time that he has placed among the top three. GOING OUT IN STYLE With a toss of 172’9”, Sara Neubauer finished seventh in the discus throw at the NCAA Championships to claim her second All-America honor in that event and her third overall. She also placed 15th in the shot put with a distance of 52’3¼”. MORE NEWS FROM OREGON Ally Romanko concluded her collegiate career with a 19th-place finish in the national semifinals of the 800-meter run (2:09.89).

FALCONS CLAIM 11 ALL-MWC AWARDS Highlighted by four medals from Sara Neubauer, the Falcons claimed 11 all-conference selections at the MWC Championships. In all, seven individuals and one relay team earned top-three finishes. Bryce Bergman, Nick Frawley, Jonathan Rock, Justin Tyner, Conner Van Fossen and Katie Weber earned individual honors, while Bergman, Chris Severino, Tyler Stanley and Manny Smith teamed up on the 4x400-meter relay.

PASSING THE BATON Both women’s relay teams made a dramatic impact on the Academy’s all-time list at the conference championship meet. Jessica Mapes and Bethany Gross each ran a leg of the 4x100-meter and the 4x400-meter relays that moved into the topthree on the program’s all-time list. Jess Barton and Tawny Lambuth joined the pair in the 4x100-meter relay, which finished in 47.73 and moved into second on the all-time list, while Morgan Mosby and Ally Romanko teamed up with Mapes and Gross for the third-fastest 4x400-meter relay time ever at 3:45.05. WHAT A DAY! Sara Neubauer had an impressive first day at the MWC Championships, winning the discus title and upping her own Academy record in the hammer throw. Throwing into a heavy crosswind, Neubauer dominated the field by over 13 feet to win the discus title (159’4”). Only hours earlier, she blasted her standard in the hammer throw by over seven feet (193’7”), to earn all-conference honors in that event. GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES Jonathan Rock placed third in the 10,000-meter run (unadjusted time of 32:34.14) to mark that ninth straight year that Air Force has claimed at least one top-three finish in the championships’ longest race. In fact, the Falcons earned a pair of top-five marks in 2010, as Jeremy Drenckhahn finished fifth in a time of 32:53.97. TIBBS SETS FRESHMAN RECORD Michael Tibbs set the Academy’s Freshman Class Record in the decathlon, as he scored 6,475 points to finish fifth at the MWC Championships. With a personal improvement of 169 points, Tibbs broke Marcus Nichols’ 1994 class record by 12 points. His best placement of the day came in the discus throw, as he won that event.

DID YOU KNOW? Sara Neubauer became the first MWC athlete (male or female) to earned all-conference honors in all four throwing events at the outdoor championship meet. Neubauer won the shot put and discus throw, while placing third in the hammer and javelin throws. In fact, the senior won both throwing titles at the indoor meet, bringing her season total to four titles and six all-conference awards.

LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE HEPTATHLON In her final competition, Danielle McCarty posted a career-best 4,494 points. By improving her personal score by 80 points, McCarty recorded the fourth-best total in Academy history. Lesly Torres moved into eighth on the program’s all-time list, as she upped her personal total by 200 points (4,216), while Phaelen French improved her score by 150 points (3,967) to move into ninth.

IT’S GOOD TO BE BLUE Finishing second, Justin Tyner helped Air Force make a dominating statement on the podium of the 5000-meter run. Air Force accounted for four of the top seven spots. Jim Walmsley placed fifth, while Zach Nordahl and Jeremy Drenckhahn finished sixth and seventh, respectively. Air Force has now accounted for four of the top eight runners in the 5000-meter run during each of the last four years.

JUST-IN TIME Justin Tyner raced up the Academy’s alltime list in another event at the Payton Jordan Invitational on May 1, as he recorded the second-fastest 3000-meter steeplechase time in program history. Running the event for the first time this season, Tyner shaved nearly 19 seconds off of his previous time to cross the finish line in 8:41.09. That time shot the junior from sixth to second in the program’s record book. He also posted his third Junior Class Record of the year, edging Bret Hyde’s junior time by 0.01.

MAKING SOME DRASTIC IMPROVEMENTS Conner Van Fossen and Wyatt Warnick improved their personal distances in the javelin by over a combined 30 feet at the MWC meet. Van Fossen bettered his mark by 10 feet to finish third at 223’7”, while Warnick improved his distance by over 20 feet to finish fifth at 197’7”. Van Fossen moved into second on the Academy’s all-time list (only a foot off Joe Bonner’s record of 224’9”), while Warnick debuted in 10th.

RUNNIN’ ROMANKO Clocking a time of 2:06.29 in the 800-meter run, Ally Romanko improved her No. 2 ranking on the program’s all-time list. Finishing second among the collegiate runners at the Payton Jordan Invitational, Romanko bettered her personal-best time by nearly two seconds. She is now just over two seconds shy of the Academy standard.

LOOKING AT THE NUMBERS In a combined effort at the Front Range Classic on May 1, the Air Force men and women accounted for 12 first-place finishes, 46 top-five scores, six meet records and six additions to the Air Force Academy’s all-time record book. MAKING HER MARK Bethany Gross continues to make an impact on the program’s history book. Clocking a career-best time of 25.09 in the 200-meter dash at the Front Range Classic, Gross moved into fourth on the program’s all-time list and broke the Academy’s 25-year-old Freshman Class Record. With less than one season under her belt, Gross holds two class records, is ranked fourth in the 200-meter dash, fifth in the 400-meter dash, ninth in the long jump and has been a member of the 4x100-meter and 4x400-meter relay teams that have cracked the all-time top-10 lists. THERE’S NOTHING “NEU” ABOUT THIS Sara Neubauer picked up a pair of victories at the Front Range Classic, winning the shot put and discus throw with meet-record performances. Neubauer tossed a mark of 54’3¼” in the shot put and a career-best toss of 174’2” in the discus throw. In addition to her two event titles and the second-best discus mark in Academy history, Neubauer placed third in the hammer. TWICE AS NICE Manny Smith and Tyler Stanley paced the Falcons with a share of two meet titles at the Front Range Classic. Smith won the 400-meter dash (48.02), while Stanley earned the top spot in the 800-meter run (1:50.43). In addition, the pair comprised half of the winning 4x400-meter relay squad that recorded a meet record of 3:13.31. EASY AS 1-2-3 Air Force claimed the top three places in the men’s 800-meter run at the Front Range Classic on May 1. Tyler Stanley won the race in a careerbest time of 1:50.43, while Nick White and Alex Zubey finished second (1:53.17) and third (1:54.67), respectively. In addition to winning the race, Stanley moved into fourth on the program’s all-time list with an altitude converted time of 1:49.78. HOME ON THE RANGE Kyle Schwochow moved into ninth on the program’s all-time shot put list, as he tossed a career-best distance of 54’2¾” at the Front Range Classic. Making her first appearance in the Academy’s all-time shot put records was Rachel Gebauer, who recorded the ninth-best throw in women’s history at 40’9”. In addition, Morgan Mosby debuted in ninth on the program’s all-time list following an 800-meter performance of 2:14.50 (altitude). IT’S BLUE AT THE TOP Air Force took four of the top five spots in the women’s pole vault and three of the top five in the men’s event at the Front Range Classic on May 1. Kimber Shealy won the women’s pole vault, while Tawny Lambuth took second. Bizzy Mellado and Pia Goodman finished fourth and fifth, respectively. On the men’s side, Cale Simmons tied for the top clearance, finishing second based on attempts, while his twin brother Rob took third. Matt Cooper rounded out the top finishers, as he placed fifth. DEALINGS FROM DRAKE Two throwers competed at the 101st annual Drake Relays over the April 23-24 weekend. Junior Conner Van Fossen placed eighth in the javelin throw, recording a distance of 191’7”, while sophomore Robert Drye finished 23rd in the hammer throw with a toss of 173’11”.

2011 OUTDOOR SEASON IN REVIEW

HOME SWEET HOME Backed by a career-best 800-meter time in the NCAA quarterfinals, Ally Romanko will get to conclude her impressive collegiate career in her home state of Oregon. Romanko earned her ticket home by placing 12th in the quarterfinal. Clocking a personal-best time of 2:06.13, Romanko improved the second-best time in Academy history.

IT’S ALL ABOUT AIR POWER Air Force earned half of the top six spots in the men’s pole vault.

2011 TEAM INFORMATION | MEET THE FALCONS | SEASON REVIEW | PROGRAM HISTORY | AIR FORCE ACADEMY

BY THE NUMBERS With his fourth career All-America award, Nick Frawley became the most decorated Division I All-American in Academy history. Frawley claimed All-America honors for three consecutive years at the outdoor championships, as well as one during the 2009 indoor championships. Sara Neubauer picked up her third All-America honor at the 2010 championships - tying two-time NCAA champion Dana Pounds for the second most in Division I history.


TYNER SHATTERS ANOTHER RECORD For the second straight week, Justin Tyner set an Air Force Academy record. This time, he crushed the program’s 14-yearold mark in the 5000-meter run at the Mt. SAC Relays, crossing the finish line in 13:37.66. Tyner shaved nearly 32 seconds off of his previous best time at that distance to break Eric Mack’s 1995 record of 13:48.76. DID YOU KNOW? Justin Tyner’s Academy-record finish of 13:37.66 in the 5000-meter race at the Mt. SAC Relays also improved on the Academy’s Junior Class Record from 13:41.26. Tyner originally set that mark during his third-place performance (as the top American finisher) at the NCAA Championships. A CHANGE AT THE TOP For the last six years, the Academy’s top three 5000-meter times remained the same. However, after two races at the Mt. SAC Relays, only one name remains. Following Justin Tyner’s Academy-record 13:37.66, Jim Walmsley recorded the third-fastest time ever, as he finished his section in a Sophomore Class Record time of 13:56.56. The pair joined former record-holder Eric Mack as the only Falcons to finish below the 14-minute mark.

JUST ANOTHER DAY AT THE BEACH Bethany Gross had a stellar day at the Beach Invitational. Clocking a career-best time of 55.71, Gross improved her fifthplace standing on the program’s all-time list. She also dismantled the Freshman Class Record of 56.22 that had stood since the 1981 season. In addition, Gross ran a leg of the 4x100-meter relay that clocked the ninth-fastest time in program history (48.50) and a leg of the 4x400-meter relay that placed fifth. NEUBAUER EARNS ANOTHER WEEKLY AWARD Just days after setting an Air Force Academy record in the hammer throw and improving her conference leading mark in the discus throw, Sara Neubauer picked up her third Mountain West Conference Athlete of the Week honor on April 13. It is Neubauer’s third weekly award of the season and the fourth of her career. DID YOU KNOW? Sara Neubauer’s April 13 weekly award was the third of the season and the fourth of her career. She is now tied with current teammate Nick Frawley and former Air Force standouts, Dana Pounds and Sean Temple, for the most career weekly honors in program history. TYNER TIMES IN Finishing the Sun Angel Classic’s 1500-meter run in a time of 3:44.05, Justin Tyner not only debuted on the program’s all-time top-10 list for that event, he did it in an Academy record-setting fashion. Shaving three seconds off of his prior best time, Tyner finished as the runner-up in the “premiere” section of the race and edged out former Academy record-holder Dan Castle by 0.03 seconds. MOVING ON UP Bryce Bergman finished ninth in the 400-meter hurdles at the Sun Angel Classic with a career-best time of 51.96. In addition to clocking the eighth-fastest time in program history, Bergman became the first Falcon since 2004 to appear on the Academy’s all-time top-10 list in that event. SHE’S A FAST LEARNER Despite just being on the track team for less than a month, Bethany Gross already has her name listed in two spots on the program’s all-time record book. The freshman, who is already ranked ninth in the long jump, moved into 10th on the program’s all-time list in the 400-meter dash with a 56.41 at the Sun Angel Classic on April 10. LEADING THE SQUAD Conner Van Fossen and Bizzy Mellado paced their respective squads at the Colorado Invitational.

Van Fossen led Air Force to four of the top five collegiate finishes in the javelin throw, including Michael Tibbs (third), Noah Palicia (fourth) and Wyatt Warnick (fifth).

MULTIPLE MULTI NOTES, HEPTATHLON In the heptathlon, Danielle McCarty tallied a team-best 4,241 points, Lesly Torres (4,017) became just the eighth Falcon to surpass the 4000-point mark and Phaelen French won the 800-meter run. Torres also debuted in eighth on the program’s all-time list with that total.

MAKING AN ADJUSTMENT … AGAIN Sara Neubauer improved the Academy’s hammer throw record at the Sun Angel Classic to 186’5”. Just one week after rewriting her own shot put standard, Neubauer improved her mark in the hammer by nearly four feet.

REACHING NEW HEIGHTS Backed by three career marks, the pole vault team had an impressive day at the Beach Invitational. Joel Nolan became the seventh Falcon to clear the 17-foot bar in men’s competition, as he tied for first at the meet and moved up three spots on the program’s all-time list.

NEUBAUER RESETS SHOT PUT RECORD Sara Neubauer improved her Academy record in the shot put at the Texas Relays on April 3, as she tossed a distance of 54’5½”. Finishing third in the “A” section of the shot, Neubauer recorded the second-farthest throw in Mountain West Conference history.

58

GOING BIG IN TEXAS Recording a distance of 214’9”, Conner Van Fossen had a stellar night at the Texas Relays. With four of his six attempts surpassing the 200-foot mark, Van Fossen was one of just two throwers to account for a “fair” throw on every attempt. A personal improvement by nearly four feet, Van Fossen moved into fourth on the program’s all-time list. TOTALLY TAWNY Tawny Lambuth blasted her personal-best clearance in the pole vault at the Tom Benich Classic. Clearing the bar at 12’1½”, Lambuth improved her height by over one foot and shot from 10th to fourth on the all-time list. In addition to her runnerup finish in the pole vault, Lambuth also earned fourth-place times in the 100- and 200-meter dashes. POLE VAULT POWER Two Falcons made an impact on the Falcons all-time pole vault rankings at the Tom Benich Classic on April 3. In addition to Tawny Lambuth’s fourth-best clearance of 12’1½” in the pole vault, Bizzy Mellado used a personal-best height of 11’7¾” to move into a tie for sixth on the all-time list. Pia Goodman’s debut of 10’2” helped Air Force account for three of the top five spots in that event. TYNER EARNS MWC HONORS Justin Tyner claimed his first MWC Athlete of the Week Award on March 30. The junior won both the 1500- and 5000-meter races as the Military Track and Field Championships on March 27, setting meet records and career-best times in both. He took over the conference lead in the 1500-meter race with a time of 3:47.32, while recording the eighth-fastest time in Academy history in the 5000-meter race with a time of 14:09.44. That time shattered the previous meet record by 27 seconds! WOMEN WIN MILITARY CHAMPIONSHIPS Backed by 11 first-place finishes, including a sweep of the throwing events from Sara Neubauer and three titles from Ally Romanko, the Air Force women dominated the field to win the Military Championships. Accounting for eight meet records, the Falcons collected 237 points to better the other academies by 44 points. MEN PLACE SECOND AT MILITARY MEET Air Force’s men’s team collected seven first-place finishes and 198 points to place second at the Military Championships. The meet was highlighted six meet records and a pair of first-place finishes from Justin Tyner. AND THAT’S A MEET RECORD… As marks from the inaugural all-military meet in 2007 fell, that phase was uttered by the announcer 21 times over the two-day meet in 2010. Air Force accounted for 14 of those occurrences, including three from Sara Neubauer (shot put, discus throw, hammer throw), two from Ally Romanko (800-meter run, 1500-meter run) and two from Justin Tyner (1500-meter run, 5000-meter run). DID YOU KNOW? After two Military Track and Field Championships (2007, 2010), the Air Force track and field team now hold over half of the meet records (21 of 38 total marks). Included in that impressive total are six of the eight throwing events, both of the pole vaults, both of the 3000-meter steeplechase events and eight of the 11 men’s track e vents, including everything from the 100- to 5000-meter distances.

FITTING RIGHT IN Bethany Gross, who spent the past six months as a member of the women’s basketball team and hadn’t even trained with the track and field team, joined the team on March 24 and made an immediate impact just three days later. At the Military Championships, Gross placed third in the long jump with a distance of 18’0¼”, becoming just the ninth female in Academy history to surpass 18-feet in that event. She also ran the second leg of the winning 4x400-meter relay team that clocked the sixth-fastest time in Academy history and scored for Air Force with a fifth-place finish in the 400-meter dash. MORE WINNERS In addition to the seven combined titles claimed by Sara Neubauer and Ally Romanko, the Air Force women earned four additional firstplace finishes at the Military Track and Field Championships, en route to their first team title. Jen Bremser won her debut in the 3000-meter steeplechase (11:26.92) and moved into fifth on the program’s alltime top-10 list. Danielle McCarty won the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 64.38. Kimber Shealy cleared 12’6” to win the pole vault, while Cresha White won the long jump with a career-best 18’2½”. MORE WINNERS, PART TWO While Justin Tyner claimed a pair of event titles at the Military Track and Field Championships, five additional Falcons accounted for first-place finishes at the service academy showdown. Justin Manchester clocked a 54.77 to win the 400-meter hurdles, while Zach Nordahl clocked a time of 9:18.35 to win the 3000-meter steeplechase. Clearing 17’0¾”, Nick Frawley won the pole vault and improved the meet record by nearly two feet, while James Cole (discus throw, 160’8”) and Connor Van Fossen (javelin throw, 201’3”) claimed first-place honors in their respective throwing events. A NEW MEET, SORT OF The Military Championships was fairly new to most members of the Air Force program. The first – and last - Military Track and Field Championships took place in 2007, so only a handful of Falcons participated in this meet. The seniors that competed here as freshman were Nick Frawley, Danielle McCarty, Brittany Morreale, Sara Neubauer, Ally Romanko and Katie Weber. The meet between service academies was also new for all of the Falcons’ coaching staff, except for head coach Ralph Lindeman and associate head coach Scott Irving.

AIR FORCE MEN WIN OUTDOOR OPENER Highlighted by eight first-place finishes, including a sweep of the throwing events, the Air Force men won its outdoor season opener, the Mason Spring Open, on March 20. The men accounted for 23 top-three finishes, as they bettered the rest of the field by over 40 points. TAKING CONTROL OF THE EVENT The Falcons accounted for first-place marks in all four men’s throwing events and three of the four top spots in the women’s throws at the Mason Spring Open. On the men’s side, Robert Drye won both the shot put and hammer throw, while Connor Van Fossen placed first in the javelin and James Cole finished first in the discus. Sara Neubauer picked up first-place finishes in both the shot put and discus throw for the women, while Katie Weber posted the winning distance in the javelin. PATRIOT GAMES In addition to the victories from the throwing team at the Mason Spring meet, Air Force earned first-place marks from Ally Romanko and Jim Walmsley in their respective 1500-meter races. Joel Nolan (pole vault) and Bryce Bergman (400-meter hurdles) also picked up first-place marks. THE YOUNG WILL LEAD There are only 16 seniors (eight men, eight women) on a roster that featured nearly 120 athletes. The men’s freshmen class is the largest with 42 members. In fact, that number is nearly the total of the entire women’s team. A RHODES SCHOLAR Brittany Morreale became the 11th cadet-athlete to receive a Rhodes Scholarship. Earning a major in physics and minor in Japanese, Morreale was a member of the Academy’s Scholar’s Program and holds the Freshman and Sophomore Class Records in the 5000-meter run.

2011 Air Force Track and Field Media Guide | GoAirForceFalcons.com USAFA ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME In 2007, the Air Force Academy announced the formation of the Athletic Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame honors the Academy’s former intercollegiate athletes for achievements and contributions to the intercollegiate team program during their cadet career and their achievements as leaders of character for the Air Force, the Department of Defense, and the nation upon commissioning. Former athletic administrators of the intercollegiate program, coaches and support staff may also be honored for extraordinary achievements. Inductees into the Athletic Hall of Fame will be honored with a plaque on the “Walk of Honor,” recognizing their distinguished achievements. The “Walk of Honor” is located on the fourth floor of the Falcon Athletic Center. Every Olympic cycle, the Air Force sponsors 20-30 athletes to train for a berth in the next Olympic Games. Athletes for this program must be of Olympic caliber: that is, the National Governing Body (NGB) must recognize the athletes chosen for the World Class Athlete Program (WCAP) as having a legitimate chance at attaining an Olympic berth.

Athletes who meet the criteria are then placed in a special duty assignment preceding the Olympic Games. The initiation of this program was in 1995, modeled after the Army’s existing program. It was developed after seeing a decline in the amount of Armed Forces members achieving International athletic prowess; specifically, the number of Olympic medals awarded to these members. What does this mean for track and field athletes? Simply put, high caliber athletes graduating from the Academy have a unique opportunity to continue training in their sport. Not only do they get the time to train the way an elite athlete needs to train, but they also get all of the support. A section of Air Force services called ‘AF Sports’ selects these athletes and takes care of all the equipment, training supplies and travel for the athletes. The athletes choose where they would like to train to get the best benefit. PRE-ATLANTA GAMES 1994-96 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

CONFERENCE HISTORY


From its inception in 1999, the Mountain West Conference has been committed to excellence in intercollegiate athletics, while promoting the academic missions of its member institutions. Progressive in its approach, the MWC continues to cultivate opportunities for student-athletes to compete at the highest level, while fostering academic achievement and sportsmanship.

Now in its 12th year, the MWC has been assertive in its involvement with the NCAA governance structure and has taken a leadership role in the overall administration of intercollegiate athletics. The Mountain West Conference has marked several achievements over its first 11 years of existence, most notably becoming the first to establish a sports television network dedicated solely to an intercollegiate athletic conference (The Mtn.). The Mountain West also was the first to experiment with the coaches challenge in the college football instant replay system, and was the first non-automatic-qualifying BCS conference to participate in and win two BCS bowl games. Additionally, the Mountain West was the first conference to have a member institution with No. 1 overall picks in both the NFL and NBA drafts in the same year (Utah’s Alex Smith and Andrew Bogut, respectively in 2005). With San Diego State’s Stephen Strasburg claiming the No. 1 pick in the 2009 MLB Draft, the Mountain West is one of two conferences to have the No. 1 selection in each of the NFL, NBA and MLB drafts since the MWC was founded in 1999. The Mountain West also ranks second in No. 1 draft picks in the NFL, NBA and MLB over the last six years with three overall. The Mountain West Conference is noted for its geographic diversity. Some of the most beautiful terrain and landscapes in the nation can be found within Mountain West Conference boundaries, including the majestic Rocky Mountain range, which borders four MWC schools (Air Force, BYU, Colorado State and Utah). The high plains of Wyoming (elevation 7,220 feet – the highest Division I campus in the nation) contrast with the desert city of Las Vegas (the fastest growing metropolitan area in the West) and the Pacific Ocean locale of San Diego State. The southwestern flavor of New Mexico complements the western heritage and culture of Fort Worth, Texas, home of the MWC’s most recent member, TCU. HISTORY The Mountain West Conference was conceived on May 26, 1998, when the presidents of eight institutions — Air Force, BYU, Colorado State, New Mexico, San Diego State, UNLV, Utah and Wyoming — decided to form a new NCAA Division I-A intercollegiate athletic conference. The split from the former 16-team conference re-established continuity and stability among the membership within the new league and signaled the continuation of its tradition-rich, long-standing athletic rivalries. Five of the MWC’s eight original members have been conference rivals since the 1960s (BYU, Utah, New Mexico, Wyoming, Colorado State), while San Diego State (1978) and Air Force

(1980) were longtime members as well. UNLV and TCU entered the fold in 1996 and the Rebels continued as one of the original eight institutions that formed the MWC in 1999. TCU rejoined the group with its first year of competition in the Mountain West in 2005-06. On June 17, 2010, Commissioner Craig Thompson announced the addition of Boise State University to the Mountain West Conference, effective July 1, 2011. When the MWC officially began operations on July 1, 1999, the new league had in place a seven-year contract with ESPN, giving the broadcaster exclusive national television rights to MWC football and men’s basketball, and three-year agreements to send the league’s football champion to the Liberty Bowl and a second team to the Las Vegas Bowl. Commissioner Craig Thompson also arranged a third bowl tie-in each of the first three years (1999 Motor City, 2000 Silicon Valley, 2001 New Orleans) before securing a four-year deal with the Emerald Bowl in San Francisco in 2002. Entering the 2011 season, the MWC has five contracted bowl affiliations – the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas, San Diego Country Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl, Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl and New Mexico Bowl. An innovator in the postseason bowl structure, the MWC engineered many “firsts,” as league teams have participated in five inaugural bowl games (2000 Silicon Valley, 2001 New Orleans, 2002 San Francisco (Emerald), 2005 Poinsettia, 2006 New Mexico), as well as placing the first non-automatic- qualifying BCS team into a BCS bowl game with Utah’s appearance in the 2005 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. EXPOSURE The Mountain West Conference continues to receive unprecedented national television exposure through a combination of telecasts on The Mtn., CBS College Sports Network (formerly CSTV) and VERSUS. In 2009-10, 46 football, 94 men’s basketball and 34 women’s basketball Conference controlled contests were broadcast nationally. On Aug. 26, 2004, CBS College Sports Network (formerly CSTV) and the Mountain West Conference announced a visionary partnership that revolutionized the college sports landscape. The landmark agreement was the first NCAA Division I football and men’s basketball conference-wide deal for CSTV and provided the network exclusive rights to all Conference events, including cable and satellite television coverage, national over the air and satellite radio, video-on-demand and online broadcast rights. In the summer of 2006, the centerpiece of this historic relationship was realized with the launch of The Mtn. – MountainWest Sports Network – the first sports network dedicated to serving a single collegiate athletic conference. Nearly 25,000 hours of MWC programming have aired on The Mtn. since the network’s launch on Sept. 1, 2006, and over 260 MWC events are shown live annually through a combination of telecasts on The Mtn., CBS College Sports Network and VERSUS.

COURSES OF STUDY Cadets are exposed to a balanced curriculum that provides the knowledge, skills and responsibilities essential to a career Air Force officer. The entire USAFA experience is integrated and mapped to achieve a set of desired outcomes in every graduate. The core academic curriculum includes courses in basic sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities. Cadets take elective courses to complete requirements for one of 32 major areas of study. About 50 percent of the cadets complete majors in science and engineering; the remainder graduate in the social sciences and humanities. Some of the most popular majors include management, aeronautical engineering, foreign area studies, history, behavioral science, civil engineering, astronautical engineering, electrical engineering and engineering mechanics.

The majority of the Academy’s faculty members, more than 500 total, are Air Force officers. They are selected primarily from career-officer volunteers who have established outstanding records of performance and dedication. Each has at least a master’s degree and more than 55 percent have doctorates or other terminal degrees in their field of study. About 30 percent of the faculty are civilians who bring great depth of disciplinary and educational expertise and provide academic stability and continuity. Faculty members are intensely focused on cadet learning as an integral part of their officer development. The Air Force Academy has been ranked No. 1 in the nation for the most accessible and involved faculty for four years in a row. To provide greater contributions by a diverse faculty, the Academy has several visiting professors and endowed professors who serve one or more years. Officers from other services, as well as officers from allied countries are also members of the faculty. Distinguished civilian and military lecturers also share their expertise with the cadets during the academic year.

ATHLETIC PROGRAM The U.S. Air Force Academy offers a four-year program of instruction and experience designed to educate, train and inspire men and women to become officers of character, motivated to lead the United States Air Force in service to our nation. Each cadet graduates with a bachelor of science degree and a commission as a second lieutenant in the Air Force.

An air, space and cyberspace-oriented military education, training and leadership program begins with basic cadet training and continues throughout the four years. Seniors are responsible for the organizational leadership of the cadet wing, while juniors and sophomores seek to develop team and interpersonal leadership and instructional skills. Cadets are projected into as many active leadership roles as possible to prepare them to be effective Air Force officers. Fundamental concepts of military organization -- drill, ethics, honor, Air Force heritage and physical training -- are emphasized the first summer during basic cadet training. Freshmen study the military role in United States society, as well as the mission and organization of the Air Force. Sophomores receive instruction in communication skills and juniors study combat and operational aspects of the Air Force. The Academy offers courses in flying, navigation, soaring and parachuting, building from basic skills to instructor duties. Some cadets may fly light aircraft with the Cadet Flying Team. Summer training for cadets is divided into three, three-week training periods. There are a variety of programs available and each cadet is required to complete two training periods each summer with leave during the other period. All new cadets take six weeks of basic cadet training in their first summer. Combat survival training is a required three-week program during cadets’ second summer. For other second-summer training periods, cadets have options such as working with Airmen in an operational unit at an Air Force installation, airborne parachute training, soaring or basic free-fall parachute training. During their last two summers, all cadets are offered leadership training as supervisors or instructors in the summer programs listed above. Extracurricular activities also are an integral part of the education program. The cadet ski club, drum and bugle corps, cadet chorale and forensics are a few of the programs available to Academy cadets.

NOMINATIONS Nominations to the Academy may be obtained through a congressional sponsor or by meeting eligibility criteria in other categories of competition established by law. For information on admission procedures, write to: HQ USAFA/RRS 2304 Cadet Drive, Suite 200 USAF Academy, CO 80840-5025.

HISTORY OF THE ACADEMY In 1948, a board of leading civilian and military educators was appointed to plan the curriculum for an academy that would meet the needs of the newly established Air Force. The board determined that Air Force requirements could not be met by expanding the other service academies and recommended an Air Force Academy be established without delay. In 1949, then Secretary of the Air Force W. Stuart Symington appointed a commission to assist in selecting a site and on April 1, 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower authorized creation of the United States Air Force Academy. After considering 580 sites in 45 states, the commission narrowed the choice to three locations. During the summer of 1954, Secretary of the Air Force Harold Talbott selected a site near Colorado Springs, Colo. Colorado contributed $1 million toward purchase of the property. In July 1955, the first Academy class entered interim facilities at Lowry Air Force Base, Denver, while construction began. It was sufficiently completed for occupancy by the cadet wing in late August 1958. Initial construction cost was $142 million. Women entered the Academy on June 28, 1976, as members of the class of 1980.

DR. HANS J. MUEH, DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS Dr. Hans J. Mueh is in his seventh year as the director of athletics at the Air Force Academy. A retired Air Force brigadier general, Mueh was vice dean of faculty for two years prior to his retirement from active duty in the summer of 2004. Mueh was heavily involved in Academy athletics before becoming director of athletics. He was the Academy’s faculty athletics representative from 1996-2004 and was a long-time member of the board of directors for the Air Force Academy Athletics Association.

He still holds the Academy record for saves in a game with 30, accomplishing it twice in 1965 against North Carolina and Benedictine. In his junior and senior years, Mueh helped the Falcons to the Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Soccer League championship and quarterfinal berths in the NCAA tournament. He was a first-team all-league selection in 1965.

Since becoming the director of athletics, Mueh has led the Academy to some remarkable feats. In 2007, the Academy was one of only three schools (Michigan State and Boston College) to reach post-season play in football (2007), men’s basketball and ice hockey (2006-07). It marked the first time a service academy has ever had a team compete in the post-season in all three sports.

Between earning the two degrees, Mueh returned to the Academy as an instructor in the department of chemistry from 1970-72. He also served as assistant soccer coach and played semi-pro soccer with the Aurora Internationals in Denver during those two years, leading the Internationals to the Colorado state title in 1971.

In addition, under Mueh’s watch the men’s basketball team has played in an NCAA tournament and the National Invitational Tournament’s Final Four. The ice hockey team won three straight conference championships and made three straight appearances in the NCAA tournament. Mueh was on the selection committee that hired current head coach Frank Serratore and led the Academy’s move into the Athletic Hockey Association.

The football program, the Academy’s flagship sport, has gone through a major overhaul under Mueh. He led the transition from the retirement of the legendary Fisher DeBerry after 23 years at the helm to hiring current head coach Troy Calhoun, a 1989 Academy graduate. Calhoun’s impact was immediate, leading the Falcons to a 9-4 overall mark and a second-place finish in the Mountain West Conference in 2007. The Falcons qualified for their first bowl game in five years, playing in the Armed Forces Bowl in 2007. The program has posted back-to-back eight-win seasons and qualified for bowl games since, marking the first time since 1990-92 Air Force has been to a bowl three straight years. Mueh has been just as successful behind the scenes with the administration of the department. Mueh restructured the department with an internal/external model that has streamlined resources and made the department more effective from top to bottom. In addition, he has the department on course to become a federally chartered non-profit organization which will lead to more fund-raising opportunities. Mueh was instrumental in the USAFA Endowment and the announcement of an Indoor Training Facility that broke ground in the summer of 2010. The $15 million facility will be completed in 2011.

Following graduation, Mueh completed two assignments in intelligence before attending the University of Wisconsin where he earned his master’s degree in chemistry in 1970. He later earned a doctorate degree in chemistry from Wisconsin in 1976 as a distinguished graduate. Mueh also completed Squadron Officer School, Air Command and Staff College and Air War College.

He volunteered for duty in Vietnam and served as an intelligence officer in Saigon, Republic of Vietnam and at Nakhon Phanom RTAB, Thailand, in 1972 and 1973. After earning his doctorate degree, Mueh returned to the Academy in 1976 as an associate professor of chemistry. He remained at the Academy except for a stint in 1985-86 as the special assistant for technical matters at the Defense Intelligence Agency at the Pentagon. In 1986, he assumed the position of acting head, department of chemistry, before being selected for his position of permanent professor and head of the department of chemistry in 1987. As faculty athletics representative, he was active in both the Western Athletic Conference and Mountain West Conference, and was the Academy’s representative on the transition team to form the new MWC, the only faculty athletics representative on the team. He competes in golf, racquetball, handball and tennis, and has promoted Air Force Academy intercollegiate sports throughout his tenure, beginning with work as chairman of the hockey eligibility committee, officer representative to the men’s golf team and five years as the officer representative to the football team. Mueh is married to the former Sally Flax of Cincinnati, Ohio. They have three children: Kristine, Kurt and Deborah.

Mueh has also been active within the conference and the NCAA. He was recently selected to be part of the NCAA Division I Amateurism Cabinet and has been active on the NCAA’s academics/eligibility compliance cabinet, the men’s golf committee and the region 7 postgraduate scholarship committee. Mueh has been equally active within the conference on various leadership committees. He is currently on the awards and recognition committee and has previously served on the joint council executive committee, and committees on championships, television and sportsmanship. Before assuming his duties as vice dean at the Academy, Mueh was permanent professor and head of the department of chemistry at the Academy, a position he held since October 1987 where he oversaw the annual design and instruction of 25 undergraduate courses for 1,500 cadets annually.

Mueh was born Jan. 8, 1944, in Celle, Germany, and emigrated to the United States in 1951. He entered the Air Force in 1962 as a member of the Academy’s eighth graduating class, and graduated with a bachelor of science degree in chemistry in 1966. While at the Academy, Mueh was a two-year letterwinner in soccer as a goalie.

The majority of the Academy’s men’s and women’s programs compete at the NCAA Division I level in the Mountain West Conference. The Falcons compete in this conference against teams from Brigham Young, New Mexico, Colorado State, San Diego State, TCU, Wyoming, Utah and UNLV. All sports also compete against non-conference opponents, including many nationally-ranked teams. The football team competes annually for the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy, which is emblematic of service academy football supremacy. The Falcons have won the trophy 16 times, which is more than Army and Navy combined. The winner of the annual rivalry visits the White House to have the trophy presented by the President of the United States. The USAFA Cadet Field House is one of the most impressive buildings in the country. It’s a modern, versatile structure with seemingly endless uses. The $5.6 million building is five stories high and 396 feet by 426 feet, the size of three football fields laid side by side. The structure is divided into three areas--basketball arena, ice hockey arena and multipurpose area. The three sections have a combined seating capacity of more than 9,000.

CADET FIELD HOUSE INDOOR TRACK The Cadet Field House is considered one of the top athletic facilities in the country. This multi-purpose facility, built in 1968, houses the indoor track, basketball arena, and ice hockey rink for intercollegiate sports. The indoor track area, whichcan seat 1000 fans, is at the second-highest elevation of any track in the nation. The track is a full-pour polyurethane surface of 268-meters (six laps/mile), with eight lanes on the straightaway and six lanes on the oval. Inside the oval is an FieldTurf surface that includes polyurethane runways for the pole vault, horizontal and high jumps, along with a throwing cage. The field house is equipped with a full-size Daktronics scoreboard and message center along with event-specific AAE field event scoreboards, and a FinishLynx computerized timing system. In July 1997, the Academy’s Class of 1976 commissioned regional artist Michael Esch to paint an eight panel canvas representing the life of an Academy cadet over four years. Each canvas is a 40-foot by 40foot panel, painted in acrylic enamel that portrays the realism of Academy life since 1976. The panels hang on the north wall of the Field House indoor track and are a gift to the Athletic Department.

MEET ANNOUNCER - TOM WESTON Tom Weston is entering his 14th year as the meet announcer for the Air Force track and field team. Weston, who retired in 2010, after seven years as the principal at Liberty High School in Colorado Springs, also works with the athletic department as the public address announcer for Falcon football and basketball games. Aside from announcing all Air Force track and field meets, Weston has been the announcer for the last 13 conference indoor championship meets, as well as the last 10 outdoor championship meets. He has also announced the Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) 4A and 5A Track and Field Championships and the 4A and 5A Cross Country Championships. In addition, Weston is the announcer for the Mountain West Conference Basketball Tournament. He has held that position for the past eight years and was the announcer at the 2004 and 2008 NCAA Men’s Basketball First Round games in Denver.

The most noticeable change to the Cadet Track Stadium will be its placement among the Academy’s athletic fields. The track oval will be shifted to the North and West, increasing the track’s radius by over 10 feet (from 102’0” to 112’6”). The new track will consist of eight 48-inch lanes, as opposed to the 42-inch lanes in the current layout. The new track surface will be the BSS-1000 system, an IAAF-certified surface that is durable enough to resist the roughest weather and the toughest competition (see features below).

The pole vault, with dual directional runways, will be located just outside the track’s West straightaway. By having a dual front pit in the middle and additional boxes at both ends, two competitions can be staged simultaneously in the same North/South or South/North direction. There will also be two additional pole vault runways and boxes on the North side of the stadium to allow for vaulting in an East or West direction. “We’ve been waiting a long time for this renovation,” Lindeman continued. “Undersurface water damage made our existing track unusable for home competition since the 2006 season. Typically, a track surface can be expected to last 10 years. Our track was initially installed in 1983 and resurfaced in 1995. So, we’ve gotten maximum use out of it!” The new track stadium will be completed in the summer of 2011.

“Our athletes are excited about the surface,” Air Force head coach Ralph Lindeman said. “It was engineered to be soft enough to prevent overuse injuries on the track, but will be extremely fast for competition.”

BSS-1000 SURFACING SYSTEM Surfacing will be the BSS-1000 system of 13mm “full-pour” polyurethane, with “light encapsulation” of an alaphatic coat to bind SBR rubber granules on the surface.

Bleachers will be moved to the East side of the stadium, along the straightaway toward the new common finish line. ADA seating will be installed on the Northwest curve, bringing the permanent stadium capacity to 2,500. By moving the track oval, the Falcons will be able to take advantage of the existing hill on the West side, adding an additional, natural, seating area to the venue. In addition, a pressbox to house meet personnel will be built above the new finish line.

BSS-1000 is a product of Beynon Sports Surfaces, owned by FieldTurf Tarkett Company, the same company that installed FieldTurf in Falcon Stadium, as well as USAFA’s Baseball and Lacrosse fields.

“Our staff is really excited about the layout, particularly for the field events,” Lindeman commented. “We believe this configuration will be one of the most complete and versatile field event facilities in the country.”

Its bio-engineered force reduction layer integrates very fine SBR rubber granules with environmentally-friendly polyurethane to create an impermeable shock-absorbing cushion on contact.

The majority of the field events will now be contested inside of the oval.

Recent installations include the University of Oregon (where the 2010 NCAA Championships were held), University of Wisconsin, University of Iowa, University of Missouri, University of Oklahoma, University of Texas-Austin, University of North Carolina, University of South Carolina, Duke University, Rice University, George Mason University and the U.S. Military Academy, West Point.

Two parallel long jump/triple jump runways will be located along the East straightaway, with sand pits on both ends to allow for simultaneous competition Two high jump pit positions will be located in the North End, while the discus throw ring will be situated in the Northwest corner. The South portion of the infield will consist of two shot put rings, a combination discus throw/hammer throw cage and the steeplechase water jump. There will be javelin runways on both the North and South ends, allowing for throws in either direction, depending on the wind.

CADET OUTDOOR TRACK STADIUM

The Cadet Track Stadium, the outdoor home of the Air Force track and field team, is in the midst of a $3.8-million renovation. Once completed, the stadium, located at 6,980 feet above sea level, will be one of the premier track and field facilities in the nation.
