Aggie softball complex...

W

ith three national championships and 19 NCAA playoff appearances to its credit, the Texas A&M softball team also has one more item on its long list of honors. In March, 1994 the Aggies were awarded the Aggie Softball Complex, the first-ever field of their own. When construction began on the Texas A&M Student Recreation Center and Natatorium in 1993, the A&M softball team was forced from its previous home field located on one of the intramural fields at Penberthy Fields on the A&M campus. The Aggies adopted Bee Creek Park in College Station as their home field throughout the 1993 season and most of the 1994 season. But with the help of former directors of athletics John David Crow, Wally Groff and the entire A&M athletic department, the Aggies now have their own place to hang their helmets. On March 30, 1994, A&M played its first of-

ficial game at its new field and did so in style with a doubleheader sweep of in-state foe Texas-San Antonio. When it was originally built in 1994, the softball stadium was only that, a stadium. There was no team meeting room, offices or locker rooms. In 2003, after years of having to change in their cars

and under the stands, the Aggie softball team was awarded additional facilities to go along with the stadium. It was then that Aggie softball truly had a softball complex, not just a stadium. The new facilities include home and visitor locker rooms, coaches offices, on-site training facilities, a team meeting room and equipment rooms. In addition to serving as the home of A&M softball, the complex served as a host site for the gold medal USA softball team during its 2000 Central Park to Sydney Tour and also functioned as one of the sites for the National Fastpitch Coaches Association’s Exposure camp. Furthermore, the complex has served as the host site for numerous high school softball district, area and region state playoff games. Park highlights include raised seating for 1,750, a lighted field with Tifway 419 Bermuda outfield, sunken dugouts with heaters, four lighted batting cages, two bullpens and an enclosed press box. Center field depth is 220 feet, while right and left field depths are each 190 feet. The grounds crew, supervised by Leo Goertz and assisted by Craig Potts, is responsible for playing surface maintenance, and in 1999 was named NFCA/Turface Maintenance Field of the Year for the second time. In 2004 it was named field of the year for the Central Region. In the summer following the 2005 season, the Aggie Softball Complex received a facelift. A new drainage system was installed under a state-of-the-art playing surface; along with a warning track. Also constructed was an eight-foot graphically enhanced padded wall with banners displaying playoff appearances and decorative bunting in and around the stadium. The players’ lounge also received new furniture. Located on the west side of the A&M campus adjacent to the Anderson Track and Field Complex and the Soccer Stadium and across the street from Olsen Field, the complex is representative of the A&M athletic department’s continued support of its women’s programs and its commitment to excellence on and off the field.

2009 Texas A&M softball camp W

e are happy again to offer our annual softball camps. They will be exciting and offer coaching expertise from nationally known softball coaches and players. This year we are offering two full camps, with the first being offered as a varsity skills camp (ages 13-18). The second session caers to ages 9-12. We believe separating age groups will allow us to run a more effective camp with more individual instruction. There will be some free time for relaxation, but be prepared to work hard. I hope you take home some fond memories along with better skills. I hope to see you this summer, and best of luck in your season.

THE AGGIES

2009 aggie softball season outlook

F

ollowing its second-consecutive trip to the Women’s College World Series, a program-best 57 wins and a national runnerup finish, the Texas A&M softball team looks to carry its success from 2008 into 2009.

12 and on the national stage. Rebecca has tremendous potential and talent and is eager to establish herself as a go-to pitcher on our staff. “ Lloyd is a senior and transfers to A&M from Boston College where she played three seasons for the Eagles. The southpaw made 62 appearances, earned three saves and fanned 77 batters. “Savana will play an important role as we will look to her to be our reliever,” continued Evans. “She gives us much-needed depth in the circle, understands and accepts her role and has proven to be a great team player. Our pitchers understand it will take all three of them to compete for a national title.”

“Our goal for this season is to pick up where we left off last season,” said A&M head coach Jo Evans, who is entering her 13th season at the helm of the Aggies. “We have established a great culture of winning and tremendous team chemistry. Our goal is to carry that winning culture and that great chemistry into the 2009 season. We expect to continue to compete for championships.” The defending Big 12 Champions are led by Evans, a three-time Big 12 Coach of the Year, and associate head coaches Joy Jackson and Mary Jo Firnbach. The 2008 National Fastpitch Coaches Association Midwest Region Coaching Staff of the Year is at the helm of a 2009 squad that returns nine letterwinners and seven starters, while welcoming five celebrated newcomers. “We have a very young squad,” Evans said. “Our returners played in the national championship series last season, so they have been tested at the highest level. They handled the pressure and stress with poise and grace, and they will take that experience with them into this season. They are a hardworking group and anxious to show the country they can pick up where last year’s team left off. Rhiannon Kliesing

“Our freshman class will have the opportunity to be in our starting lineup,” Evans continued. “Each one of them is competing hard for a position and I anticipate them making an immediate impact on our program. They are very competitive and have the desire to be great players and help us win championships. I am encouraged by what I have seen so far and look forward to watching them grow and develop.”

PITCHERS

W

ith the departure of three-time All-American Megan Gibson and two-time All-American Amanda Scarborough, there are some big shoes to fill in the circle, but sophomore Rhiannon Kliesing, freshman Rebecca Arbino and transfer Savana Lloyd are up to the challenge. Kliesing boasted a 1.40 earned run average and a 12-4 record in 2008. She made 21 appearances with six shutouts and 99 strikeouts. The Pearland, Texas, native also batted .279 last season with nine of 29 hits for extra bases. Arbino was a four-year starter at Clovis High School in Clovis, Calif., where she was named most valuable player as a junior and rookie of the year as a freshman. “Rhiannon and Rebecca both have the ability to control a game and to lead our team in the circle,” said Evans. “Rhiannon gained valuable experience last season and learned a lot from working with Megan Gibson and Amanda Scarborough. She understands what it takes to be successful in the Big

ehind the plate, senior co-captain Erin Glasco brings a wealth of experience, catching almost every pitch last season after transferring to A&M from Notre Dame. The Johnston City, Ill., product posted a perfect fielding percentage, playing in all 67 games. A member of the Big 12 All-Tournament team in 2008, Glasco hit .280 and is the leading returner with 12 doubles. “Erin was a huge part of our success last season,” Evans said. “She came in and did a tremendous job for us and returned this season with great confidence. She is comfortable behind the plate and in the batter’s box. She is becoming a very good leader on and off the field and understands what it takes for us to be successful. She is doing a great job with our young pitching staff and her leadership and presence on the field will be a key to our success.” Freshman Eden Morris (Cohutta, Ga.) will provide Glasco some relief behind the plate. Morris was a three-year letterwinner at Dalton High School and played select ball for the Georgia Elite Gold.

INFIELD

T

he A&M infield has some familiar faces, starting with junior Macie Morrow and sophomore Natalie Villarreal. Morrow returns at shortstop, while Villarreal digs her spikes in for another season at second base. Morrow started 67 games at shortstop in 2008 and is the returner with the best batting average (.290) and most hits (60). From Sugar Land, Texas, Morrow also has great speed with eight stolen bases last season and 25 for her career. Villarreal is the leading returner in several offensive catego-

OUTFIELD

T

wo of three starters return in the outfield – senior co-captain Holly Ridley and sophomore Kelsey Spittler. Ridley has the most home runs (8) of any returning letterwinner and boasts the highest returning slugging percentage (.532) and on-base percentage (.418). A native of Sugar Land, Texas, she is projected to start in right field and to provide power in the middle of the lineup. From Caldwell, Texas, Spittler earned a starting position in left field her first season and returns with a .270 batting average after starting 66 games in ’08. “Holly made a smooth transition from the infield to the outfield and has shown good versatility,” commented Evans. “Kelsey made an impact on our program as a freshman and will continue to develop and get stronger in the outfield.” Junior Bailey Schroeder and sophomore Andrea Tovar will work hard to fight for positions in the outfield as well. Schroeder is a team player who saw time in the outfield, pinch hitting and pinch running. She was born and raised in College Station, Texas, and recorded a .444 batting average and a 1.000 fielding percentage last year. Tovar (Seguin, Texas) mainly saw time as a pinch runner in her freshman campaign and used her speed to score 20 runs. Freshman Kelsea Orsak is penciled in to be A&M’s centerfielder after 2008 All-Big 12 first-team selection and Women’s College World Series AllTournament team member, Jami Lobpries, was lost to graduation. Orsak was a Louisville Slugger/NFCA High School All-American and a four-year starter at

sic (Feb. 13-15) and the other in Houston for the Marriott Houston Classic (Feb. 20-22). A&M remains in College Station for its next two early season invitationals. The Aggies’ bring in tough competition, hosting the eight-time national champion Arizona Wildcats for a three-game series Feb. 27-March 1. A&M also welcomes NCAA Tournament teams Louisiana Tech, Stephen F. Austin and Kent State March 6-8. “We look forward to playing so many home games this season,” Evans said. “We had a great following last year and so many people followed us throughout the WCWS. There has been an increase in attendance at our home games and scrimmages this fall, and I think that is due to our success last season. Our home schedule gives our fans the opportunity to watch us play more games than ever. We have a tradition of competing very well at home and our stadium is a tough place to play.” In between hosting back-to-back tournaments, Aggie softball faces Houston on the road in a doubleheader on March 4. The Cougars made it to the NCAA Super Regionals in ’08. A&M travels to Boca Raton, Fla., March 13-15 for its final non-conference weekend. The Aggies face host Florida Atlantic, Bethune Cookman, Liberty and regional-qualifier Purdue. The defending Big 12 Regular Season and Tournament Champions open conference play March 21-22 at home against Nebraska. The Aggies host Texas (April 1), Oklahoma State (April 8), Texas Tech (April 10-11), Baylor (April 15) and Iowa State (April 25-26). The team travels to Baylor (March 25), Kansas (March 28-29), Missouri (April 4-5), Oklahoma (April 18-19) and Texas (May 2). The Tigers, Sooners and Longhorns each made the NCAA Tournament last season. The Big 12 Championship is May 8-10 at the ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Okla. The NCAA Tournament schedule commences May 15-17 with NCAA Regionals to be held at campus sites. The WCWS is May 28-June 3 in Oklahoma City.

Macie Morrow

Pearland High School in Pearland, Texas. She was also an all-state selection and played for the Texas Aces Gold club team. “Kelsea is inexperienced in the outfield, but has great speed and great potential,” said Evans. “She will likely be our leadoff hitter.”

SCHEDULE

E

leven NCAA Tournament teams, one team that joined Texas A&M at the Women’s College World Series and 25 home games highlight the 2009 Aggie softball schedule. In another ambitious schedule, A&M is slated to play 18 games against teams that competed in the NCAA Tournament in 2008, including four squads that advanced to the NCAA Super Regionals. “We are excited about our 2009 schedule,” said Evans. “We have a great non-conference slate which features three home tournaments and a three-game series against the University of Arizona. We have the finest fans in the country and they will have the opportunity to watch some of the best teams in the nation compete at our stadium. ” A&M opens regular season play by welcoming Tulsa and UTSA to College Station for the first of three home tournaments Feb. 6-7. The Aggies then spend back-to-back weekends on the road, one in Baton Rouge, La., for the Easton Tiger Clas-

ries, including runs (41), doubles (12), triples (4) and RBI (33). An All-Big 12 second-team selection, the Frisco, Texas, local also tallied a team-high 12 sacrifice hits and will most likely be seen in the two hole this year. “Macie and Natalie have been very solid up the middle for us,” Evans said. “Our team led the nation in fielding percentage last season and Natalie and Macie deserve a lot of credit. Our pitching staff is young, so they will play a crucial part in our team defense. They have shown they can handle the pressure of playing for Big 12 Championships and national championships. Their presence on the field and the example they set for our freshmen will be invaluable.” When she’s not in the circle, Kliesing will see time at first base along with freshman Taryn Broussard. Broussard is from Lake Jackson, Texas, and was a two-year letterwinner at Brazoswood High School. She was named first-team all district, first-team all county and offensive player of the year. Broussard played for the Texas Connection Gold for three years. A&M’s third departure from 2008 was third baseman, Jamie Hinshaw. The Missouri City, Texas, native was a four-time All-Big 12 performer and named an NFCA All-American in 2008. Junior Alex Reynolds will take over the hot corner with sophomore Kara Rau in tight contention. Reynolds was an All-Big 12 first-team honoree after hitting .364 in league play. The Tomball, Texas, product was seen mostly as a designated player but also spent time at first base. Rau was an all-district selection at third base at Clear Creek High School in League City, Texas, and earned the team’s MVP award as the varsity co-captain her senior year.

season

uring her tenure at Texas A&M, head coach Jo Evans has made her mark on the Aggie softball program, taking it from a team with a lot of history into a formidable contender on the national stage. Evans’ Aggies have posted 12 straight 30-win seasons including four 40-win seasons and a school-record 57 wins in 2008.

W

ith Evans at the helm, A&M has advanced to the postseason eight times with six straight appearances since 2002. In the past three years, Evans steadily improved the Aggies by more than 10 victories a year which led to two consecutive trips to the Women’s College World Series in 2007 and 2008. A&M gutted its way into the WCWS Championship Series last season and posted a national runner-up finish in addition to the Big 12 regular season and tournament titles. The Aggies finished the season ranked No. 2 in the national polls with a 57-10 overall record and led the nation with a .983 fielding percentage. A 17-1 league record and two conference trophies in ’08 earned Evans her third Big 12 Coach of the Year honor. In addition, Evans and Associate Head Coaches Joy Jackson and Mary Jo Firnbach were voted the 2008 National Fastpitch Coaches Association Midwest Region Coaching Staff of the Year. Under Evans, senior ace Megan Gibson received her third NFCA All-America accolade, was one of three finalists for the 2008 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year award and was named Big 12 Player of the Year and Pitcher of the Year, marking the first time in conference history that a single athlete achieved both awards. Senior third baseman Jamie Hinshaw earned NFCA All-America third-team honors, while six players were selected to the All-Big 12 teams, including Gibson, Hinshaw, Jamie Lobpries, Holly Ridley, Alex Reynolds and Natalie Villarreal.

“2008 was a phenomenal year for our program, said Evans. “Our team motto was ‘Do Your Job’ and our players lived up to that motto all season long. Our team played with great character, resilience, tenacity, integrity, a great work ethic and an undying love for its school, teammates and program. It was a magical year, filled with many memorable moments, establishing a standard of what we should expect from our program year in and year out.” n 2007, Evans reached her 700th career victory as A&M made a return to the WCWS for the first time in nearly 20 seasons. The Aggies made their best start in school history, posting a 12-game winning streak. Before the start of Big 12 play, A&M climbed to a No. 2 national ranking and amassed an astounding 28-3 record behind the iron shoulders of Amanda Scarborough and Gibson. The Aggies finished the season with a 46-14 mark, making their 18th postseason appearance and bringing home the College Station Regional and Super Regional titles. Four players from the ’07 squad (Gibson, Hinshaw, Scarborough and Sharonda McDonald) were named to the All-Big 12 teams. Gibson and Scarborough went on to earn NFCA AllAmerica first-team honors. The 2006 season showed some amazing highs but also noted a few lows for a young squad that had one senior in the starting lineup with six underclassmen.

Evans’ Coaching Stops

Evans was once again honored as the WAC Coach of the Year and was also named as the West Region Coach of the Year by her peers. When A&M came calling in 1996, the opportunity was too sweet to pass up. The facilities, history, budget and entire Aggie experience overwhelmed Evans on her visit and she knew she was ready for the move and for a new challenge. “Leaving Utah and coming to A&M was the toughest decision I have ever had to make,” said Evans. “I was incredibly happy at Utah and I was excited about what we had accomplished. “I was familiar with A&M because I had competed against them as a player and a coach for many years and was impressed with what they had been able to do. When I got the call about the position I didn’t know that I was interested, but after talking to them for over an hour I got excited. I wondered what it would be like to leave my comfort zone and rebuild another program at a place that had the facilities and budget that A&M offered. “When I came on my visit I was impressed by the facilities and the idea of being able to practice outside in the winter (year-round practices) as well as being able to compete in the Big 12 Conference. I ultimately took this job because I thought I needed a new challenge. I was excited to get the opportunity to come here. I felt like I had done what I could at Utah and it was time to move on.” s a player at Utah, Evans earned High Country All-Conference Honors in 1982 as she led the team to a World Series appearance. She also was named as an ASA All-American in Women’s Class-A Nationals. Evans has three siblings, her oldest sister, Karen, and brother, Craig, live in Salt Lake City, and Vicki lives in Walnut Cove, North Carolina. Evans is the daughter of Bill and Bonnie Evans of Salt Lake City. n her career Evans racked up 782 wins to 443 losses and two ties, good for a .639 winning percentage. She advanced to postseason play 13 times and holds five regular season conference titles and three postseason titles.

COACH JO EVANS … UP CLOSE Ag g i e Fa m i ly The Aggie family is something that is very “ unique. It is a body of people who embrace

S TA F F

the values of teamwork, community, integrity, loyalty and hard work. It is nice because my coaching philosophy reflects what this university represents so the two mesh perfectly together. I had serious doubts about our players feeling like part of a family among a student body of 44,000, but I have been absolutely amazed by the family atmosphere and the feeling here. Our athletes really feel like they are part of this whole experience and university. Aggie Muster epitomizes that family atmosphere and the feeling of being one with a group. Our players feel that and it is special. Everyone knows that we are a unique university and they see us and they want that kind of feeling. That is a great draw.

I am one of those people that if I could have played forever I would have done that. I just loved to play the game. I had a passion for it and know I am getting to do what I really want to do.

P h i lo s o p hy o f L i f e

W hat I really believe is that you get what you give. My players hear me say that all the time. So if they give positive energy and a positive attitude and enthusiasm then they will get that in return. I feel like that about my life as well. If you surround yourself with positive people then you are going to have a positive experience. I can’t expect to have good experiences and get much out of my life if I don’t put anything into it.

Coac h i n g P h i lo s o p hy

respect each other and they are accepting of each other. We work very hard to recruit that type of player/person. The nice thing about A&M is that it draws people to it. There are a lot of great athletes that want to come to this school, so we can look at that group and choose the athletes who have great attitudes, great work ethic, conscientious students, who are people of character. This is the type of player currently competing in our program. I will continue to recruit players who are unselfish, versatile, and have a passion for the game.

Fa m i ly At m o s p h e r e

We are incredibly fortunate because we have a group of athletes that really like each other and that makes a lot of difference. It is easy to get a group of people together and end up having cliques, but we don’t have that. We try to establish a family atmosphere for our players. When our freshman class arrives I spend time with them talking about the things they are going to encounter in this whole experience and really encourage them to take care of each other.

I recognize that I need “ to be my players’ biggest

fan. I need to make sure they feel confident and they know that I have confidence in them. I try to create an environment for them that is relaxing and positive and feels like a family, the kind of atmosphere where they can continue to grow and develop. I have always been extremely competitive and my intensity in my early years would take over sometimes. I was just so consumed by the almighty win. Obviously now I still want to win, but I have a better perspective and I try to get my players to understand that perspective. I see myself focusing more on the process as opposed to the outcomes and that becomes less consuming. I feel myself more in the moment than if I am only focused on winning and I try to convey that to my players. Like anything, you lead by example with your actions, so if I can be relaxed and enjoy what I am doing then I feel like it will help the players be the same way. There is a whole lot more going on than just playing ball so it is important to create an environment where they understand priorities and perspective and that softball is not the only thing in their life. I have to make sure that there is enough intensity and make sure that our players are being motivated and driven. There is a fine balance there.

I believe good things come back to you if you are surrounded by positive people, bright people, and if you open yourself up to new ideas. I recognize that I get more out of life if I try to follow this path. I make time to read and I enjoy hearing new ideas and different views. I know this allows my world to get bigger. That is my goal: to not pigeon hole myself or get myself into such a corner that my world is softball and ESPN Sportscenter. I find myself gravitating away from sports, when I leave the field, and trying to broaden my horizons.”

I couldn’t be happier with the people we have in our program. Having a group that recruits can see taking care of each other has been a great draw.

To u g h N o n - Co n f e r e n c e Schedule

I believe we should play the toughest non“ conference schedule possible. Our program is

at a point where we are among the best in the nation and we need to play the best to continue to improve and move towards our goal of a national title.

Fav o r i t e A & M T r a d i t i o n

I love Aggie Muster. Of all the Aggie traditions Muster is my favorite. We don’t just say you are going to be a part of our family, we live it and follow through with it and that is what Aggie Muster is all about.

W hy Coac h i n g ?

I have loved the game of softball ever since I got involved at the age of ten. I knew I wanted to coach when I was in high school. I was someone who always had a vision of what I wanted to do. I was around coaches and around the game constantly so it was always a part of my life and I loved to play.

38

So when each class comes in they recognize these are their friends and family who they will take care of for the next four years. We talk about that collectively as a team as well. When we have any sort of problems arise we try to quickly confront the issues and deal with it in a respectful manner and it has worked out very well.

R e c r u i t i n g P l aye r s

There is a balance. It is very important for us to recruit great athletes with great character. We have built our program around great athletes in the 10 years I have been here and the reason we have had success is because our players are athletic, but also great people. They

B i g 12 Co n f e r e n c e

I t is a tremendous privilege to coach in the Big 12 Conference. Very few coaches get the opportunity to coach in a conference like the Big 12 and compete against this caliber of teams. The country recognizes our conference as one of the best in the country. Every team that participates in the Big 12 has the ability to compete in post-season play. Every team in our conference is tough and there is no one team that dominates in conference play. The Big 12 title is up for grabs every year and the parity in our conference is what makes it fun and exciting.

Dr . Elsa A. Murano President, 2 nd Year

S TA F F

D

r. Elsa A. Murano is the 23rd President of Texas A&M University. Taking office on Jan. 3, 2008, at age 48, she is the first woman and first Hispanic-American to lead the oldest public institution of higher learning in Texas— now one of the largest teaching and research universities in the nation. Her association with the university dates back to 1995, when she joined the Texas A&M faculty as an Associate Professor in the Department of Animal Science and Associate Director of the Center for Food Safety within the Institute for Food Science and Engineering. Dr. Murano was named Director of the Center in 1997 and served in that position until 2001. Also, she rose to the rank of Professor and was named holder of the Sadie Hatfield Professorship in Agriculture.

Dr. Murano interrupted her Texas A&M service in 2001 when President George W. Bush asked her to serve as Under Secretary for Food Safety for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, making her the highest-ranking food safety official in the U.S. government. In leading the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service, she was responsible for an agency with a budget of approximately $1 billion and about 10,000 employees, with the mission of working to improve public health through the application of science in policy decisions. She returned to Aggieland in January 2005 as Vice Chancellor and Dean of Agriculture and Life Sciences, joint positions in which she served until being appointed President of Texas A&M. As Vice Chancellor and former Director of Texas AgriLife Research (formerly the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station), she led a transformation of agricultural programs and four state agencies within The Texas A&M University System to the benefit of students, peers and the agricultural community represented in 254 counties across Texas. While serving as Dean, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences experienced significant growth in enrollment and enhancement of its teaching, research and service endeavors. In

conjunction with her deanship, Dr. Murano chaired a blue-ribbon task force to study ways for enhancing the undergraduate experience at the University, which has ultimately become known as “The Murano Report.” A noted expert on food safety, Dr. Murano was principal investigator or co-principal investigator in research projects totaling more than $8.7 million during her professorial career, initially at Iowa State University and continuing at Texas A&M. She has been widely published, as author or co-author of seven books, book chapters or monographs, and scores of scholarly papers, abstracts and related materials. Dr. Murano began her professorial career in 1990 as an As sistant Professor in the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Preventative Medicine at Iowa State, the position she held prior to joining the Texas A&M faculty. She received a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences from Florida International University, and earned both a master’s degree in anaerobic microbiology and a doctorate in food science and technology from Virginia Tech. She is married to Dr. Peter S. Murano, Associate Professor of Nutrition and Food Science and Director of Texas A&M’s Institute for Obesity Research and Program Development.

Bill Byrne Director of Athletics, 6 th Year

B

ill Byrne is in his sixth year of Building Champions as Director of Athletics at Texas A&M University. With more than 25 years experience as a Division I athletic director, Byrne has impressive credentials and a track record for producing champions on and off the field. Since arriving in Aggieland in December of 2002, the Aggies have won 23 Big 12 Conference Championships in 10 different sports and captured four team national championships in equestrian. The 23 championships won by the Aggies from January 2003 through the end of the 2008 season rank second in the league. In fact, no Big 12 member school surpassed the 15 conference championships won by the Aggies during the 2006-07 and 2007-08 seasons combined. In the prestigious Director’s Cup all-sport rankings, Byrne has guided A&M to its three highest finishes in school history. The Aggies’ best finish was 12th in 2007-08. Under Byrne’s leadership, the department has made significant upgrades in facilities and increased revenue opportunities, while remaining focused on winning on the playing field and in the classroom. Byrne manages an athletic budget in excess of $70 million for the 2008-09 year. During his tenure at A&M, he has overseen the construction or renovation of approximately $60 million in athletic facilities. Byrne teamed with the 12th Man Foundation, the institution’s primary fundraising organization for athletics, to develop a comprehensive master plan for A&M’s athletic facilities. Together, they secured several major gifts for the second phase of A&M’s Championship Vision Capital Campaign. Citing the need for an indoor football facility and an indoor track and field stadium, Byrne ensured the multi-purpose $36 million McFerrin Athletic Center became a reality in 2007 and 2008, respectively. The complex boasts two full sized football fields, a state-ofthe-art hydraulic track capable of hosting national championships, a Magic Carpet system, and seating for 5,000 spectators. At the same time, Byrne recognized the need for a basketball practice facility which would allow the basketball teams to each have

their own practice courts, locker rooms, a weight room, an athletic training room, and offices under the same roof. In the fall of 2008, the $23 million Cox-McFerrin Center for Aggie Basketball opened its doors as part of an expansion to Reed Arena. Known as one of the most innovative and influential leaders in terms of marketing, Byrne has made an impressive impact in marketing Aggie Athletics. In January of 2006, A&M awarded the school’s athletic multimedia marketing rights for 10 years to a joint venture of Learfield Communications, ISP Sports, and FSN Southwest – known collectively as Texas A&M Sports Properties. The agreement is one of the top multimedia rights contracts in the country and provides significant income for A&M athletics throughout the length of the agreement. The forward-thinking Byrne tabbed the guaranteed revenue from the Learfield agreement to finance the department’s ambitious video screen and ribbon board expansion project, which included Kyle Field, Reed Arena, and a portable video screen mounted on a 53-foot 18-wheeler. The video screens are operated by 12th Man Productions, nationally recognized as one of the finest in-house video production programs in America. Success on the field, coupled with a focus on the school’s in-game marketing, helped boost attendance across the board resulting in increased season ticket revenue. Under Byrne’s leadership, season ticket sales in football have increased 13 percent since 2003. Season ticket sales for men’s and women’s basketball have more than doubled since 2003 – men’s basketball has grown by 107 percent and women’s basketball by an impressive 199 percent. Increased attendance at home contests has also been aided by the creation of a fan rewards program for frequent attendance. The 12th Man Team Rewards Program is a fan-loyalty program which allows A&M’s Athletic Department to thank their most dedicated fans’ continued support and attendance at the school’s home athletic events. Upon its inception six years ago, attendance records at A&M were immediately shattered. To date, each sport offered at A&M has set at least one new school attendance record. While at A&M, Byrne has hired nine head coaches in eight sports. Eight of his hires have achieved postseason competiathletic council tion within their first two seasons.

83 Big 12 and Big Eight Conference championships. Byrne’s 48 Big 12 titles ranked second in the league during his tenure at Nebraska. The Huskers also won 10 national championships, including three in football and two in women’s volleyball. Together, Byrne’s teams compiled an extremely impressive string of nine straight top 25 finishes in the Director’s Cup Division I-A standings. Husker student-athletes excelled in the classroom, and 109 were named CoSIDA Academic All-Americans. In 1996, the Big Eight and Southwest Conferences combined forces to form the Big 12. Byrne played a pivotal role in the formation of what has become one of the nation’s powerhouse conferences. Byrne’s first role as athletic director was at the University of Oregon from 1984-1992. Byrne arrived in Eugene, Oregon in late 1982, where he served 18 months as an associate athletic director, before being appointed one of the youngest athletic directors in the country in May of 1984. Under his watch, the Ducks captured 16 Pac 10 Conference championships and four national championships in track and field and cross country. It was at Oregon where Byrne first earned the reputation for outstanding hiring practices. He also made major changes to the landscape of Oregon’s athletic facilities and earned the nickname, “Bill the Builder.” Byrne began his collegiate career as the director of alumni relations at his alma mater Idaho State and then served as executive director of the New Mexico Lobo Club from 1976-79. He was the assistant athletic director for external operations at San Diego State from 1980-82. Throughout his career, Byrne has been recognized with the highest awards an athletic administrator can receive. Among his many accolades, honors include the U.S. Sports Academy 2007 Carl Maddox Sports Management Award; the 2002 winner of the National Football Foundation John L. Toner Award; the 1999 Central Region National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) Director of the Year; president of NACDA in 1991-92; and the National Athletic Fundraisers Association Fundraiser of the Year in 1985. Byrne is a 1967 graduate of Idaho State University, where he also served as student body president. He earned an MBA in 1971. Byrne’s wife of more than 40 years is Dr. Marilyn Kent Byrne, who has expertise in leadership development, team building, and executive coaching. The Byrnes have two sons – Bill III and Greg. Bill is a vice president of Visa USA in San Francisco, and Greg is the director of athletics at Mississippi State University. Greg and his wife Regina live in Starkville, Miss., with their sons, Nicholas and Davis.

S TA F F

s a prospective student-athlete, you may have the A athletic ability to play at the Division I level. If so, you may be exposed to a large amount of recruitment

from various universities across the nation. Throughout the recruitment process, coaches may reference various NCAA rules and regulations. The rules are designed for various reasons, but the two primary reasons are to ease the pressures on the prospective student-athlete and to level the playing field from one university to another. During the recruiting process you may have some of the following questions: When and how often may I visit a university’s campus? How many times may a coach observe me in practice or a competition? When, where and how often may a coach telephone me? What academic credentials do I need to be eligible to play collegiate sports? All of these answers and more may be obtained from Texas A&M University or the NCAA by requesting the NCAA Guide for the College-Bound StudentAthlete. This guide may be provided to a prospective student-athlete at any time. The guide will discuss issues related to Division I, II and III, academic eligibility, financial aid, recruitment and many more. To receive the guide, simply request it from the Texas

compliance staff (from left) Matt Callaway, Administrative Assistant Brad Barnes, Education Coordinator Susan Tatum, Monitoring Coordinator David Batson, Director of Compliance

A&M coach who is recruiting you or call the NCAA Hotline at 1-800-638-3731 or go online at www.ncaa.org. Select the Academics and Athletes link, select the Eligibility and Recruiting link and click on the Guide for the CollegeBound Student-Athlete. Violations of NCAA rules during your recruitment may jeopardize your collegiate eligibility; therefore, you and your parents need to learn as much as possible about the recruitment process.

BEST OF LUCK TO YOU AND DON’T FORGET, GIG ’EM AGGIES

Texas A&M University Intercollegiate Athletic Compliance Office

NCAA FYI For Prospective Student-Athletes When do you become a prospective student-athlete?

attend without being influenced by gifts or other perks given by a university or its boosters. You (or your family) may not receive any benefit, inducement or arrangement such as cash, clothing, cars, improper expenses, transportation, gifts or loans to encourage you to sign a National Letter of Intent or to attend an NCAA school.

When you start classes for the 9th grade. Before the 9th grade, you become a prospective student-athlete if the university provides you (or your relatives or friends) any financial aid or other benefits that the university does not provide to prospective students generally.

When do you become a recruited prospective studentathlete? Would you violate NCAA amateur rules if you enter into an agreement with an agent or a person who calls him/ herself something other than an agent (e.g., advisor) who is marketing your athletic ability?

Does the NCAA require you to achieve certain academic minimum standards to be initially eligible?

Yes, it does. To be immediately eligible at a Division I university, you must be a qualifier. To be a qualifier means that you graduated from high school with at least 16 core courses (i.e., college preparatory courses that your high school will maintain on a form called a 48-H), and a minimum GPA in those core courses as well as a corresponding ACT or SAT score on a national testing date. You must register with the NCAA Clearinghouse to learn if you are a qualifier. You will find information on the Clearinghouse if you visit the internet website described above.

Does the NCAA require you to have your amateur status certified by the NCAA Clearinghouse?

46

May a booster contact you, telephone you or write you?

There are four ways: 1. A university provides you with an official (i.e., expense-paid) visit; 2. A university coach or booster* has an in-person, offcampus encounter with you or your parent(s) or legal guardian; 3. A university coach telephones you, your family or guardian for the purpose of recruitment on  more than one  occasion; or 4. A university issues you a National Letter of Intent or written offer of athletically-related financial aid. *NOTE: At the Division I level, a representative of athletic interests (booster) may not solicit your enrollment in any manner (e.g., no phone calls, letters or in-person encounters).

For students initially enrolling on or after Aug. 1, 2008, yes, the NCAA will require you to have your amateur status certified.

Yes, you would. It’s not permissible for a student-athlete to agree (orally or in writing) to be represented by or take benefits from an agent without jeopardizing NCAA eligibility. Please note that it does not matter what this person calls him/herself; if he or she is marketing your athletic ability, he or she is an agent.

When may university coaches begin corresponding (including text messaging) with you? Telephoning you? Personally contacting you? Provide you with an official visit to the university? The answers to these questions vary from sport to sport, but you may find them all in the NCAA’s Guide for the College Bound Student at www.ncaa.org or by calling the NCAA at 1-800-638-3731.

When may you telephone a university coach or visit a university campus at your own expense?

You may telephone a university coach at your own expense or visit a university at your own expense (i.e., unofficial visit) at any age and as often as you choose.

May you and your family accept benefits from a university or its boosters?

Unless the university staffer or booster is a member of your family or has a “pre-existing relationship” (call us to find out what this means) with you or your family, no, you may not accept such benefits. NCAA member institutions have decided that prospective studentathletes should be able to choose the university they

Unless the university staffer or booster is a member of your family, no, athletic representatives (boosters) may not contact, telephone you or write you for the purpose of recruiting.

May you ask Texas A&M former students about Texas A&M athletics? About non-athletic aspects of Texas A&M?

You should not ask Texas A&M former students about Texas A&M athletics because NCAA rules prohibit former students or A&M boosters from discussing Texas A&M athletics with you or your parents/relatives. However, if you telephone or write former students about non-athletics aspects of Texas A&M (e.g., the business college), they may answer your questions.

May you attend an A&M Club luncheon or meeting?

Yes, but only under certain conditions. If the luncheon/ meeting is open to the general public, you may attend. Furthermore, you must pay for your own meal and transportation unless the A&M Club provides complimentary meals and transportation to all other guests on a basis unrelated to athletics (e.g., all high school seniors from the local community). An A&M Club may even invite you to attend a function, but the invitation may not be limited only to athletes; the invitation must be made available for non-athletic reasons (e.g., senior night, incoming A&M freshmen night, etc.) and must be sent in the same manner as for all other participating students. This same restriction will continue to apply after you sign a National Letter of Intent with Texas A&M. A Texas A&M signee must be treated the same as any other high school student. For example, you or any other prospects in attendance may not be singled out to be introduced, as this would be a violation of NCAA publicity legislation related to prospects.

A special Season

Aggies make a memorable run toward a national title By True Brown 12th Man Magazine

O

REVIEW

n paper, the date looks innocent enough. Feb. 20, 2008 brought Stephen F. Austin to the Aggie Softball Complex for a midweek doubleheader, and the box scores show Texas A&M cruised to a pair of convincing wins over the Ladyjacks, 7-1 and 3-0.

In game one, pitcher and cleanup hitter Amanda Scarborough was solid, posting a 3-for-4 mark and upping her batting average to a dangerous .447. Even when she departed early in the nightcap after a foul ball off her right foot, coach Jo Evans said removing the AllAmerican from the lineup was done as a precautionary measure. That precaution soon turned into a season-changing event. After it was soon revealed that Scarborough would miss the remainder of her senior season with a rare mid-foot lisfranc injury, those outside the Aggie program immediately began doubting whether the Aggies could even contend for a Big 12 title, much less muster a repeat of the previous season’s trip to the Women’s College World Series. Three months later, the rest of the country was convinced.

Not only did A&M blitz its Big 12 brethren for both the league’s regular-season and tournament titles, the Aggies gutted their way into the WCWS Championship Series. An untouchable Arizona State team eventually ended the Aggies (57-10, 17-1 Big 12) magical season, but even the doubters were inspired by what A&M’s team-first group accomplished. “It was somebody different every game,” said A&M ace

Megan Gibson

defending league champion Baylor, a game in which seven players recorded hits. The win started a remarkable run through the conference slate, as the Aggies rattled off 11 consecutive victories before dropping a tight, one-run decision in the first game of a doubleheader at Oklahoma State. The effects of the loss did not stick around long, as A&M claimed game two of the twin bill and did not lose again for 46 days. The late-season surge, which included a perfect record in both Regional and Super Regional play, secured the Aggies a return trip to Oklahoma City. Last year’s WCWS Megan Gibson, who finished the year with a 41-4 record. “You never knew who was going to get the big hit or who was going to score the big run, and that made it exciting. Everyone would be excited for one another, and that goes back to Feb. 20 when Amanda went down. Our whole team came together then, and that’s what this team was all about.” It certainly was. While Gibson, a National Player of the Year finalist, dominated in the circle after Scarborough’s injury, the Aggies routinely cashed in on game-changing plays from virtually every player in the lineup. Scarborough’s absence was announced on March 19. Later that day, the Aggies opened Big 12 play with a 7-0 throttling of

Gibson was fantastic no matter where the games were played. She turned in a season for the ages, dominating in the circle while batting a team-best .339. She powered her way to 13 home runs and 48 RBIs, all while drawing 55 walks—almost double the total of any other player on A&M’s roster. Her career marks of 56 home runs and 164 walks are the most in Big 12 history. She also finished atop the school record book in RBIs, doubles and total bases. But no performances meant more than those at the WCWS. First, she out-dueled National Player of the Year Angela Tincher from Virginia Tech. Then, she allowed just four hits and escaped a bases-loaded jam late to preserve a 2-1 win over Louisiana-Lafayette. Finally, in the loser-goes-home elimination game against No. 1 Florida, Gibson pitched a nineinning gem against the hard-hitting Gators to push the Aggies into the Championship Series. Amanda Scarborough

Jamie Hinshaw “She was so tough out there,” Evans said. “She just willed (the Florida game) to happen. When we couldn’t put runs across or get the big hit, she was the one who hung on and gave us a chance. Her mental makeup and her sheer will and determination were pretty phenomenal. It comes along maybe only a couple times in a coach’s career.” While the departures of A&M’s seniors certainly leave a few large holes to fill, Evans and Co. have enough talent spread around to be taken seriously. Transfer catcher Erin Glasco was excellent this season, as were shortstop Macie Morrow and right fielder Holly Ridley. Another talented freshman class is in College Station this year, including California All-State pitcher Rebecca Arbino, so the Aggies don’t plan on departing the national consciousness any time soon. And as 2008 definitively showed, it sometimes takes just one day to forever bolster a season.

REVIEW

appearance was short-lived, but Evans spoke at length prior to the 2008 season about the team’s desire to not only return but to make noise when they arrived. With the steady veteran nucleus of Gibson, third baseman Jamie Hinshaw and center fielder Jami Lobpries leading the way, the Aggies certainly accomplished that goal. All three seniors manned anchor positions on the field, and their experience set the tone for a lineup that saw three freshmen claim starting positions. First baseman/pitcher Rhiannon Kliesing, second baseman Natalie Villarreal and left fielder Kelsey Spittler all played in 50-plus games for Evans’ squad. The group played an important role in A&M’s airtight defense, which committed only 32 errors and led the nation with a stingy .983 fielding percentage. “That’s why we won the games we did,” said Evans, who made her fourth trip to the WCWS last season. “We made plays, day in and day out, and we expected to make plays. It didn’t have to be fancy; it just had to get the job done. Typically, when we were beaten, somebody came out and just beat us. Fortunately that didn’t happen very often.” Even when the competition was at its toughest, A&M often prevailed. The Aggies spent the first two weekends of the year at tournaments in California and Arizona. In California, the Aggies steamrolled No. 18 Oregon State, 9-1. The following weekend, A&M edged top-ranked Arizona, 3-2, before splitting games with No. 6 Northwestern and No. 15 Washington (losing 8-7 and winning 10-4, respectively). And when they were at home, the Aggies were almost untouchable. A&M piled up a gaudy 27-1 record in College Station, including two big wins against Big 12 runner-up Oklahoma in midApril. The lone home defeat came in extra innings to WCWS participant Louisiana-Lafayette, a loss the Aggies later avenged in a winners’ bracket game in Oklahoma City.

HISTORY

ational Pro Fastpitch (NPF), formerly the Women’s Pro Softball League, is intended to provide family entertainment for people of all ages and to showcase the top talent in softball today.

72

It is the goal of the league to entertain and provide positive role models for young people. NPF demonstrates that a good work ethic, dedication and love for what one does will allow everyone to achieve their life’s goals. NPF athletes demonstrate this by their actions, both on-and-off the field. They are prominent people within their communities and avail themselves to their fans, particularly the young ones. The WPSL captured the attention of fastpitch softball fans worldwide when it exploded onto America’s sports scene in 1997. Since then, the WPSL has regularly showcased an unparalleled brand of fastpitch softball played by the world’s best female athletes. The WPSL can trace its origins back to the first professional softball league. Former LPGA Tour member Janie Blaylock, softball legend Joan Joyce and tennis icon Billie Jean King, founded the International Women’s Professional Softball Association (IWPSA) in 1976. The league featured 10 teams in cities across the nation, including Meriden, Conn., Chicago, Ill., Prescott, Ariz. and San Jose, Calif. In the WPSA’s first season, each team played a 120-game schedule that featured 60 doubleheaders. The fledgling association survived four seasons before lack of funds, high travel costs and inadequate facilities ultimately led to its demise. Despite the absence of a professional league, the following decade proved to be extremely prosperous for the sport of fastpitch softball in the United States. In 1982, the NCAA began to sanction the Women’s College World Series, a move that led to increased participation and exposure for the sport. nternationally, the USA Softball Women’s National Team won back-to-back gold medals at the 1986 ISF World Championship and the 1987 Pan American Games. The college game also benefited from rule changes enacted in 1987 that increased the game’s offensive output and ultimately its popularity. Some felt it was the perfect time to reintroduce the world to professional softball, but few acted upon their beliefs. Former Utah State University softball player Jane Cowles was in the minority. Along with her collegiate head coach John Horan, Cowles developed a plan for a women’s professional fastpitch softball league. In February 1989, she introduced a blueprint for the league to her parents John and Sage Cowles, owners of the Cowles Media Company, who agreed to provide financial backing for the endeavor. Field research and market studies began later that fall and continued to take place through 1993. In January 1994, plans for a barnstorming tour were announced, and 18 months later two teams comprised of former collegiate all-stars played exhibition games in cities throughout the Midwest. The tour was an overwhelming success and provided the framework for a true professional league.

After completing two seasons as WPF, officials changed the name to WPSL in 1998. he WPSL consisted of four teams located in the Eastern United States in 2000. The world’s most talented fastpitch softball players, including former Olympians, collegiate All-Americans and all-conference selections, highlighted the 15-player rosters of the league’s four squads. The Akron Racers, Florida Wahoos, Ohio Pride and Tampa Bay FireStix each participated in the WPSL regular season. The Florida Wahoos defeated the Ohio Pride in the championship series held in Springfield, Mo. The 2001 “Tour of Fastpitch Champions” allowed the WPSL to focus on expansion. The WPSL expansion plan took into consideration the need to re-shape the current structure of the league to accommodate the addition of important strategic partners vital to future growth and success of the League. The 2001 tour traveled to 11 cities that were targeted as WPSL expansion candidates. Competi-

T

tion featured games between the WPSL Gold and All-Star teams as well as Canada, the USA National Teams and local all-star teams. Nine of these games were televised, seven on ESPN2 and two “live” on ESPN, a first for the WPSL. The season was deemed a success with more than three million households witnessing a WPSL game. Numerous cities are also being developed for future ownership in the league. The “Deuce” televised over 30 games from 1999 to 2001. The broadcasts consistently outrated those of Major League Soccer (MLS) and the National Hockey League (NHL). lay was suspended during the 2002 season to restructure the organization and allow the league additional time to develop and explore new expansion markets. However, a WPSL All-Star team competed in two exhibition games against the Tennessee All-Stars as part of the National Softball Association’s A division Eastern World Series in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The WPSL All-Stars also conducted two clinics as part of the weekend activities. On Nov. 21, 2002, WPSL announced a rebranding strategy and official name change to National Pro Fastpitch. Major League Baseball partnered with NPF as its Official Development partner as a continuation of MLB’s efforts to connect with female athletes and women. As “Official Development Partner” in 2003, Major League Baseball provided introductions to Major League Baseball Clubs, community partners, broadcast partners and to MLB.com. This landmark relationship is sure to elevate NPF to new levels. As part of its long-term sales, marketing and promotional campaign, NPF featured an AllStar Tour in 2003. The tour provided each of the league’s expansion team owners with tools to lay the groundwork in their marketplace for the official launch of league play in 2004. n 2004, all the hard work and planning paid off for fans, athletes, coaches and league officials with the relaunch of the league in six markets: Stockton, California; Tucson, Arizona; Houston, Texas; Akron, Ohio; Lowell, Massachusetts; Montclair, New Jersey. The 2004 season was distinguished by 178 league-wide games, 96 of the best female softball players in the country, the continued support of Major League Baseball as the Official Development Partner of NPF in the category of women’s fastpitch softball, NPF playoffs (both best of three series went three games) and the inaugural NPF Championship with the NY/NJ Juggernaut capturing the Championship Cowles Cup with a victory over the New England Riptide, fourth place finisher in the regular season. In December 2004, owners of the individual NPF teams announced a plan intended to transition operations of NPF from the founding Cowles family to an operating group consisting of team owners. he efforts of the new ownership group in 2005 focused on solidifying broadcast agreements locally and nationally, soliciting sponsorship support, and aligning with national softball associations to bring meaningful competition to each team market and various grassroots events across the country. The group continues to recruit new teams and strengthen team ownership in each market. The 2005 regular season included a total of 144 games and 23 opponents including six NPF teams, plus women’s ASA major teams and interna-

Thunder. The win was her second of the weekend over Rockford, the first being a no-hitter. With her efforts, Abbott was named the NPF Championship Series Most Valuable Player. he 2008 season included six teams competing in a total of 168 regular season games, including games against Chinese Taipei, Canada, Venezuela and the Netherlands. In late May, NPF secured a partnership with Fox SportsNet (FSN) to nationally televise eleven games on a tape-delayed basis to fans across the country (seven from Akron and four from Philadelphia). Having the “Game of the Week” was a big step forward for NPF and brought our world-class athletes into the living room of many new fans with an average rating of .07 or 60,000+ viewers on a weekly basis, despite a mid-week afternoon timeslot. A group of players were selected from each team to join forces as “Team NPF” to compete twice against the U.S. Olympic Softball Team as part of their Bound-4-Beijing Tour. Both games were televised on ESPN and even though these were USA Softball broadcasts, our equipment and apparel sponsors received valuable exposure, NPF

was covered in a very positive light and our athletes were promoted to a national audience by the World Wide Leader in Sports. The season concluded the last weekend in August when the fantastic journey for the Chicago Bandits came to a magical end in Kimberly, Wis. as they defeated the Washington Glory by a final score of 6-4 to win the 2008 NPF Championship Series and Cowles Cup Trophy. Games 1-6 were broadcast via internet radio and Gametracker with video streaming available on a tape-delayed basis at The Softball Channel.com. The final game was also produced by The Softball Channel.com and available to viewers live at MLB.com. lthough NPF continues expansion efforts, at this time, six teams will compete in 2009. NPF is exploring opportunities to bring the USA Softball Team to each ballpark as part of its post-Olympic tour and as an added competitive element to the season schedule. Team owners will once again add to the star-power of their rosters by bringing Olympians on board. NPF remains committed to building a national television schedule and finding solid partners with whom it shares a common audience attraction and reachability. TV and live video streaming will provide consistent and measurable return for our sponsors. NPF knows how important it is to support grassroots softball. The task is to utilize national marketing and media campaigns to generate national and local awareness not just for NPF, but for the sport of softball at all levels, to help develop grassroots programs, continue to introduce young female athletes to the sport and at the same time, provide elite female athletes with opportunities to showcase their skills, talents and abilities on the playing field and in the community. PF is dedicated to working with partners who will commit to the effort of promoting NPF and supporting professional fastpitch softball in the United States and continues to develop and build working relationships with key fastpitch organizations, including the Amateur Softball Association (ASA) and National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA). he development partnership with Major League Baseball, the broadcast support of local and national networks, the support of industry sponsors, the experience and commitment of team owners and the exceptional talent of NPF athletes and coaches combine and point toward a future that is bright and full of promise.

tional teams such as Canada, Mexico, Russia, Venezuela, China and Australia. The season concluded the last weekend in August when the Akron Racers beat the Chicago Bandits 5-4 in extra innings to claim the NPF Championship Title. The Juggernaut joined forces with Telecare to broadcast six games in 2005. Telecare reaches almost a million homes in the Long Island area. Comcast SportsNet Chicago aired seven original broadcasts of Chicago Bandits games in 2005. ESPN2 aired two games during the NPF Championship series. The final game was broadcast on ESPN2 with a very impressive .48 rating. n 2006, the Philadelphia Force and the Connecticut Brakettes joined the 2005 Defending Champions, the Akron Racers, the 2005 Regular Season Champions, the Chicago Bandits, the New England Riptide, the Arizona Heat and the Texas Thunder for league play. The schedule included a 48-game regular season schedule for each of the seven NPF teams including seven, four-game home series and five, four-game road series. The New England Riptide beat the Connecticut Brakettes to win the NPF Championship title at the end of August with a score of 2-0. The Chicago Bandits were once again the regular season champions.

Texas A&M No. 1 In Smart Money Report Tuesday, January 06, 2009

T

exas A&M University now ranks No. 1 in Smart Money magazine’s national ratings for “payback ratio” — the earnings levels of an institution’s graduates compared to what they paid in tuition, fees and related costs for their undergraduate educations. S. mart Money editors advanced Texas A&M to the top spot — from runner-up honors — after they were informed by the initially top-ranked University of Georgia that it had inadvertently provided some incorrect information about its tuition. Texas A&M is followed in the Smart Money updated list of 50 colleges and universities by the University of Texas at Austin and Georgia Tech, with the University of Georgia now ranked fourth. All other previously announced rankings remain the same, the magazine’s editors note. In the extensive article titled “Why The Ivies Aren’t Worth It,” the widely circulated personal-finance magazine published by The Wall Street Journal in its current edition (January 2009) says “an elite-college degree is nice, but once you factor in tuition and future salaries, public schools jump to the head of the class.” Texas A&M President Elsa Murano is cited in the article, noting “how stringently it (Texas A&M) economizes on administrative costs.” She is quoted pointing out that Texas A&M “recently bucked the education-inflation trend by limiting this year’s tuition hike to its lowest percentage in 10 years.” After seeing the published article, Dr. Murano said, “We are obviously pleased—but certainly not surprised — to have Texas A&M acknowledged as a national leader in the financial return on investment in a college education. “We take special pride in providing our students a high-quality education at the most affordable cost within our means, in keeping with our high standards as one of the nation’s top research universities. We don’t necessarily strive to be the least expensive; our goal is to provide the best overall value for a university that offers a world-class educational experience.” Smart Money editors explained that the “payback” ratio was determined by using data from an online salary database and then looking at the median salary alumni are earning within five years of graduation and after 10 years. The editors said they then divided each of those figures by the school’s historical degree costs and averaged them together.


This is Texas A&M ... Texas A&M is known internationally for excellence in academics and athletics, as well as the tremendous Aggie spirit and proud traditions that create a learning and living experience unlike any other. From world-class research, residential and recreational facilities to a broad range of academic and extracurricular programs, Texas A&M offers a myriad of opportunities for intellectual and personal development in an environment that fosters achievement at the highest level. And, rich traditions – from “Howdy,” the official campus greeting, to events and commemorations such as The Big Event, Yell Practice and Aggie Muster – create a bond that unites Aggies across the generations.

E stab l ishe d in 1876 Since its Oct. 4, 1876 opening as the state’s first public institute of higher learning, the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas, now known as Texas A&M University, has grown into a leader in teaching, research and service, with an international reputation for excellence in academics and athletics. Located in the heart of Texas, less than 160 miles from four of the nation’s 20 largest cities (Houston, San Antonio, Dallas and Austin) and home to the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, Texas A&M is a popular and convenient destination for visitors from throughout the state. 

I nternati o na l H i g h l i g hts Texas A&M is a worldwide leader a with wide array of international programs, partnerships and exchanges. Faculty and research staff have participated in more than 300 research projects in more than 50 countries and on all seven continents in recent years; the university enjoys formal cooperative agreements with about 100 institutions in more than 40 nations in Europe, Asia and throughout the Americas.

As of April 2008, Texas A&M enrolled approximately 4,100 international students from 128 countries (ranked 13th) and sends more than 1,200 students on Study Abroad programs each year. Texas A&M University at Qatar was established in 2003 in Education City, a 2,400-acre campus that also houses branch campuses of Virginia Commonwealth University, Weill Cornell Medical College, Carnegie Mellon University and Georgetown University in the city of Doha. A comprehensive Study Abroad program offers students a range of opportunities to study overseas-independently, as part of faculty-led excursions, through student exchanges or at Texas A&M centers such as The Santa Chiara Study Center in Castiglion Fiorentino, Italy; The James Earl Rudder Scholar Program in Caen, Normandy, France; and The Texas A&M University Center in Mexico City, Mexico. 

N ati o na l H i g h l i g hts Endowment: Texas A&M is the nation’s sixth-largest university (46,542 students in fall 2007). Students represent every state and 133 other nations. 3,483 (55 percent) of the first-timein-college students enrolled in fall 2007 graduated in the top 10 percent of their high school class. The average SAT for freshmen is 1208 (national average is 1017). The university received a record 21,000+ applications and a record 8,085 entering freshmen for fall 2007. Fall 2008 freshman enrollment is also expected to top 8,000. National Merit Scholars: Texas A&M is ranked No. 10 in the nation in the enrollment of National Merit Scholars and had the second-largest increase among all schools according to the 2007 National Merit Scholarship Corp. annual report. Value of Research: With nearly $570 million invested in research, Texas A&M ranks among the top 20 research universities nationwide. Texas A&M has been identified by Business Week magazine as one of the top 12 academically elite schools in the amount of research received from industry. Endowment: $6.5 billion as of FY 2007; 10th in the nation and fourth among public universities.

T he S tu d ent B o dy Texas A&M is as committed to developing students’ character as well as their intellect, through a wide array of extracurricular activities collectively referred to as “The Other Education.” More than 75 percent of Texas A&M students belong to at least one of the 700-plus recognized student organizations, the nation’s largest student-union program. Membership in these organizations and participation in their activities help build important team-

work and leadership skills, while encouraging students to give of themselves in service to others. With about 1,800 members, Texas A&M’s Corps of Cadets is the largest uniformed student body apart from the national service academies. Although membership carries no military obligation, the Corps is responsible for commissioning more officers into the U.S. military than any school other than the academies. Approximately 200 students participate in a separate corps at the Galveston campus, producing more Merchant Marine and U.S. Coast Guard officers than any institution except those academies. The student body continues to become more diverse. While total enrollment has grown by about 15 percent since 1988, minority enrollment has increased at an even faster pace. Women now represent approximately 48 percent of all students. More than 25 percent of the incoming freshman classes in recent years have been first-generation college students.

Aggie traditions Tradition and history are important parts of life on any college campus but especially at Texas A&M University. The “Spirit of Aggieland” is unmatched by any other college or university in the United States. Most traditions at Texas A&M are filled with the rich background of its Corps of Cadets, which for many years made up the entire student body at the College Station campus. Texas A&M opened in 1876 as a land grant college. At that point, the student body adopted a military structure, and the traditions of Aggieland took their roots. The school remained essentially the same until 1963 when the first women were admitted. But the school still has the Corps of Cadets — only one of a few universities in the country to maintain a strong commitment to military training. Today participation in the Corps is strictly voluntary, but about 2,000 students — men and women — choose to be part of the proud organization that helps personify the “Spirit of Aggieland.”

One of the most well-known traditions at Texas A&M is the Twelfth Man...

100

The story of this colorful tradition has been told and retold to generations of Aggie students and is part of the cohesive substance that binds A&M students together forever. The Twelfth Man is the reason A&M students stand for each entire football game. When Aggie students stand during games, it is this spirit and loyalty they are remembering. They stand in readiness in case they are needed to go into the game like the original Twelfth Man, E. King Gill.   The late Dr. Gill of Corpus Christi related this story some years ago: “It was in January, 1922, following the 1921 football season. The Aggies were SWC champions and had been invited to play Centre College in what was then called the Dixie Classic in Dallas. I had played on the football team, but was on the basketball team at that time and those in charge felt I was more valuable to the ­basketball team (Gill was an All-SWC basketball player in 1923). I was in Dallas, however, and even rode to the stadium in the same taxi with Coach Dana X. Bible. I was in ci-

vilian clothes and was not to be in uniform. Coach Bible asked me to assist in spotting players for the late Jinx Tucker (sports editor of the Waco NewsTribune) in the press box. So, I was up in the press box, helping Jinx Tucker when, near the end of the first half, I was called down to the Texas A&M bench. There had been a number of injuries but it was not until I arrived on the field that I learned that Coach Bible wanted me to put on a football uniform and be ready to play if he needed me. There were no dressing rooms at the stadium in those days. The team had dressed downtown at the hotel and traveled to the stadium in taxi cabs. Anyway, I put on the uniform of one of the injured players. We got under the stands, and he put on my clothes and I put on his uniform. I was ready to play but never was sent into the game.”

S i lver Taps One of the most emotional of all Aggie traditions… The solemn ceremony is the final tribute and honor to an Aggie who has died. The cere­mony is held in front of the ­Academic Building on the first Tuesday of every month at 10:30 p.m., if a student died during the preceding month. Students gather around the area, the campus lights are dimmed

(cars included), chimes play from Albritton Tower, a detachment from the Ross Volunteers fires three volleys and buglers from the Aggie Band play Silver Taps three times. The ceremony is quite moving because the only sense one witnesses it with is sound. The family members of the deceased Aggie are invited as special guests at the ceremony.

and the first Midnight Yell Practice was held. Today, Midnight Yell Practice is held at Kyle Field on Friday night before a home football game. The Aggie Band starts the parade at the Quadrangle near the Corps dorms and marches to Kyle Field led by the Yell Leaders carrying torches. Then, as many as 20,000 students line the route and fall in behind the band. Yells are then practiced, the Aggie War Hymn and the Spirit of Aggieland are sung, and at “lights out” the after-touchdown kiss is practiced. After an Aggie victory, the Yell Leaders are carried across campus and tossed into the Fish Pond, where a Yell Practice is held. After being “outscored,” students remain in the stands, and Yell Practice is held in preparation for the next game.

R evei l l e The first lady of Aggieland… Is the official mascot of Texas A&M University. She is the highest ranking member of the Corps of Cadets, and is a Five-Star General. A full-bred American Collie, Reveille’s history dates back to 1931. At that time, some cadets accidentally ran over a black and white dog in their Model T on the way back to campus, so they gathered up the injured dog and took it back to the dormitory. In the morning, when the bugler sounded reveille, the dog started barking and promptly received her nickname. Reveille was soon adopted by the Corps and especially the band. She followed them to all formations and led them when they marched. At the first football game, she took the field with the band and made her first appearance as the official mascot of Texas A&M. Reveille died in 1944 and was buried at the north entrance of Kyle Field facing the scoreboard so that she can always watch the Aggies outscore their opponent. Reveille II, Reveille III, Reveille IV, Reveille V and Reveille VI are now buried alongside Reveille I. Reveille VII was retired in Feb. 2008 and Reveille VIII was introduced in Fall of 2008.

First held in 1883 when Aggies met June 26 to ‘live over their college days’... The early meetings were parties and banquets held during the commencement exercises. Soon, a permanent date was set — April 21 — and it became a time to pay homage to students and former students who died during the past year. At today’s Muster, living comrades answer “here” to the roll call at the largest ceremony in the 12,500-seat Reed Arena, for their friends who have passed on. During World War I, groups of Aggies held Muster in trenches in Europe. In 1923, former students began holding Muster throughout Texas, the nation and numerous other parts of the world — to let Aggies remember old days and meet old friends.

The Aggie Bonfire signals the annual football game between Texas A&M and University of Texas…

Instead of cheerleaders leading cheers, there are yell leaders leading yells…

On the night before the game — or two nights before if it is played in Austin — the Corps of Cadets stands at attention to the music of “The Spirit of Aggieland” while the bonfire sends its flames and sparks spiraling into the sky. Bonfire is entirely financed and organized by the Corps of Cadets and traditionally belongs to the freshman class, but the entire student body helps build the world’s largest bonfire. The building and burning of Bonfire, which takes two weeks of nonstop work to complete after months of gathering wood, symbolizes the burning desire to beat t.u. and the undying love Aggies everywhere carry for Texas A&M. Bonfire formerly took place on the intramural field south of Duncan Dining Hall on the southern edge of campus, but moved to the polo fields at the northeast corner of campus in the early ’90s. Bonfire has not burned since the stack collapsed in 1999 and 12 Aggies were killed. The Bonfire will not burn for the foreseeable future. Extensive studies have been conducted concerning the future design and conducting of Bonfire. Replant is a one-day environmental service project which strives to improve the Bryan/College Station community, bring students together through tradition, provide an avenue for environmental service and action, through a yearly tree planting event. The Replant Committee is a group of Fightin’ Texas Aggie students which organizes and puts on the annual environmental service project. The diverse bunch of students comes from varied fields of study, as well as from across the country. While the group does a lot of the behind-the-scenes organizational work, it could not succeed without the elbow grease of the dedicated volunteers who attend Replant each year.

Today yell leaders are selected by a vote of the student body. There are five Yell Leaders (three seniors and two juniors) who are donned in white. These five motivated Aggies use hand signals to indicate what yell will occur next. They tell the “Twelfth Man” what yell is coming, and the students on the bottom row pick up the signal and repeat it, passing it upward until the entire student body knows what is coming. Once the “Twelfth Man” assumes the “humping it” position (bending over with the hands placed just above the knees, properly aligning the back, mouth and throat for maximum volume) the yell b ­ egins.

B i g E vent The largest student-led service project in the nation… In the spirit of giving, Aggies help serve the community every year in Big Event. Started in 1982, the Big Event promotes campus unity as students come together each spring to express their gratitude for the support from the surrounding communities of Bryan/College Station. More than 10,000 Aggies participate in more than 1,000 jobs such as painting houses, mowing lawns, and raking leaves. Dorms, Greek organizations, Corps outfits and individuals work together to help serve the community.

Aggie terminology

Each university has its own set of traditions which help to distinguish it from other institutions. Texas A&M University is no exception. Perhaps nowhere else are traditions as interwoven into the very fabric of the university than they are at Texas A&M. As a result, Aggies have a lingo that is all their own. The following list of terms helps to define what being an Aggie is all about.

A&M Shortened form for Texas A&M University. Originally, the letters stood for Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas; now, the letters are retained merely as part of the University’s tradition and history.

Aggie A student, former student or supporter of Texas A&M University. Term is derived from A&M’s agricultural ­heritage. Aggies are sometimes also referred to as farmers.

Aggie Code of Honor For many years, Aggies have followed a Code of Honor, which is stated in this very simple verse: “Aggies do not lie, cheat, or steal, nor do they tolerate those who do.”

Aggieland Home of Texas A&M University.

All-U Night All-University Night—the first Yell Practice of the semester. Event ­includes introductions of men’s and women’s intercollegiate athletic teams, coaching staff and yell ­leaders.

Association of Former Students There is no such thing at A&M as an alumni association or an Ex-­Aggie; there are only former students. The Association of Former Students serves the same purpose as an alumni association, but an individual doesn’t have to graduate from A&M to be a member. Once an Aggie, always an Aggie.

2009 Aggie Softball

Each year a CHAMPS banquet is hosted in the spring to honor the student-athletes, trainers and managers who have excelled in academics, athletics, leadership, and community service. Each year we have over 320 students that are recognized for their achievements. One of the primary goals is to have the student-athlete graduation rate equal or exceed the all university graduation rate at Texas A&M. This is a significant challenge because the university graduation rate is consistently very high. However, the staff, coaches, and student-athletes are up to the challenge.

Ac a d emi c S upervisin g Ensuring that our student-athletes are on the correct path to success is important to Texas A&M University. The Center for Student-Athlete Services employs seven full-time Academic Supervisors and a Learning Specialist. They are assisted by graduate assistants and a front office staff. Together, the staff monitors the student-athletes’ academic performance to ensure the continued fulfillment of progress toward degree requirements. This process includes academic progress reports during the semester and individualized academic planning for each student. All studentathletes are also required to submit pre-registration forms prior to registering for classes to ensure a class schedule that meets degree requirements and meshes with practice times. Additionally, every student-athlete must meet with his or her academic advisor in the college in which they are enrolled. Each student-athlete meets regularly with the athletic supervisor. The meetings help solve problems concerning class work and overall academic performance. The emphasis of the program centers on the idea of a “proactive” approach rather than a “reactive” approach. Coaches and athletic supervisors try to set the academic tone early and to be as thorough as possible in planning for each student-athlete’s academic success.

Therefore during their winter, spring and summer break, internships and part-time positions related to their major are available. This provides the student-athlete with the opportunity to gain valuable work experience while also building their resume. Upon graduation our student-athletes are the most prepared and experienced candidates one could hire.

In addition to the above services, Athletic Career Services also offers many unique programs such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Backpack to Briefcaseâ&#x20AC;? the junior and senior seminar preparing student-athletes for graduate school, internships or full-time employment.

women’s athletics Aggie Women Captured School Record Championships

T EXAS A & M

Building champions is the mission of the Texas A&M athletic department, and with the overwhelming support from the administration, Aggie women’s sports are carrying out the game plan. Under the leadership of highly regarded coaches who continue to recruit superior student-athletes, all 11 A&M women’s programs have proven to be perennial predominant forces on the conference, regional and national scales, and they continue to add to the school’s ever-expanding trophy display.

110

Texas A&M women’s teams captured a league-leading six Big 12 Conference championship trophies in six different sports, as well as a national championship trophy in equestrian in 2006-07.

histo ri c a l revie w

Aggie women’s teams captured a school-record and league-leading six Big 12 Conference regular season and tournament championships in six different sports in 2006-07. In 2007-08, they went one step further by capturing seven Big 12 crowns. A&M was so dominant in league play on the women’s side that they captured exactly half the Big 12 titles available in the sports that the Aggies sponsor. Baylor, which swept the women’s tennis regular season and tournament crowns, and Texas, which split the volleyball title with Nebraska and won the conference soccer tournament, were the only schools in the Big 12 to win more than a single title with A&M grabbing the lion’s share of the hardware. For the second straight year, nine of A&M’s 11 women’s sports advanced to postseason competition. Eight teams ranked in the final Top 15 national rankings in 2007-08, with seven in the top 10 and four amongst the top five. The practically across-the-board success experienced by the Aggie women’s teams helped catapult Texas A&M to a school-record 1,031 points in the prestigious 2007 United States Sports Academy Directors’ Cup, presented annually by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), up from the previous record of 881 set the year before. In addition, A&M finished in 12th place in the Cup standings, the best finish in school history and the second-most points tallied by a school in the Big 12.

Women have been admitted on a general basis as students to Texas A&M only since the fall of 1971. Once they gained admission, though, it didn’t take them long to begin organizing teams to represent A&M in intercollegiate athletic competition. And whether some Aggie women’s teams date their beginnings to 1973 or if they became a scholarship sport as recently as 1999, Texas A&M women’s athletics has surpassed countless milestones and continues to foster its commendable national reputation both in the competition arena and in the classroom. Most of A&M’s women’s athletic teams date their beginnings as far back as 1973, with the Athletic Department’s Lettermen’s Association formally awarding the first female letterwinners their A&M monograms at the conclusion of the 1975-76 academic year. From those origins, women’s athletics at the once all-male institution has grown significantly.

With 13 team national championship titles and numerous conference titles over the last 33 years, A&M women’s sports have been or are becoming consistent national contenders in all 11 sponsored sports — basketball, cross country, equestrian, golf, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field, and volleyball. In 1993 the university expanded to 10 women’s sponsored sports with the addition of soccer as a scholarship sport, and as a unit the Aggie athletic program ranked among the best in the nation. In 1997 A&M was ranked first in the Big 12 and fifth in the nation in the Gender Equity Report Card, published by the Women’s Sports Foundation. And in 1999, Texas A&M bolstered its commitment to women’s athletics with the addition of NCAA emerging sports archery and equestrian. Although the A&M archery team won six national team titles in six years, the sport did not grow as rapidly as expected at the collegiate level and was downgraded back to a club sport at A&M following the 2004-05 academic year.

e q uestrian The list of accomplishments compiled by A&M teams and athletes is impressive. After establishing a solid foundation as a nationally elite club team, the equestrian team has spent the last nine years riding high as a varsity athletic sport. The Aggie riders have won six national team titles with the most recent coming in western riding in 2007. This past season, the hunter seat, or English, half of the team stepped to the fore making it to the national championship match while the western team finished fifth, allowing A&M to earn a second straight runner-up overall finish at the national championships.

Another superlative season in Aggie track and field resulted in a program best finish on the NCAA level while Texas A&M successfully defended Big 12 titles during the indoor and outdoor seasons. In placing third outdoors at the NCAA Championships, the Aggies defended their 4 x 100 national title by running a school-record and collegiateleading time of 42.59 seconds while senior Simone Facey and sophomore Porscha Lucas achieved a rare 1-2 finish in the 200. A silver-medal effort in the 4 x 400, along with a bronze-medal finish from freshman Jessica Beard in the 400 led to a program best seventh-place team finish at the NCAA Indoor Championships.

13 years, and in 2005 and 2007 A&M had the prestigious privilege of hosting the Women’s College Cup. The Aggies will also serve as hosts of the national championship in 2009.

S O F T B A LL The Aggie softball team has won three national titles — an AIAW crown in 1982 and NCAA championships in 1983 and 1987. The team has played in seven NCAA Women’s College World Series (WCWS), including back-to-back trips in 2007 and 2008, and has earned a berth in the NCAA playoffs 19 of the last 26 years. Under the direction of All-American pitcher Megan Gibson and fellow seniors Jamie Hinshaw and Jami Lobpries, A&M finished the 2008 season ranked No. 2 in the nation after reaching the WCWS championship series. The Aggies set a record for wins in a season after finishing the year at 57-10, while capturing their second Big 12 regular season title and first ever Big 12 Tournament title.

It only took two seasons before the surging Aggies burst into the national limelight. The A&M soccer team finished ranked No. 13 in the nation in 2007. The Aggies won the Big 12 regular season title and made their 13th consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament.

Individually, Aggie athletes have been recognized not only at the conference, regional and national levels, but at the international level as well. In 2008, former Aggie volleyball standout Stacy Sykora became the first A&M athlete to be named to three straight United States Olympic Teams. Jennifer McFalls represented A&M at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, as a member of the USA Softball team. An alternate on the 1996 Olympic team, McFalls scored the winning run in extra innings of the championship game in Sydney to secure the gold medal for the USA. Aggie trackster Anjanette Kirkland was the 2001 world champion in both the indoor 60-meter hurdles and the outdoor 100-meter hurdles. The Aggie women’s basketball team has had four players picked in the WNBA Draft in the past eight years, including two in 2008. Aggie Jaynetta Saunders was the first A&M woman

drafted, in 2001 by the Cleveland Rockers. In 2004, Toccara Williams, one of three players in NCAA history to record more than 1,000 points, 500 rebounds, 700 assists and 450 steals, was a third round pick by the San Antonio Silver Stars. This past season, Morenike Atunrase was drafted by the Atlanta Dream in the second round of the 2008 WNBA Draft (and traded to San Antonio shortly thereafter) while point guard A’Quonesia Franklin was selected in the third round by the Sacramento Monarchs. The A&M women’s swimming team placed four athletes into the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Christine Marshall became A&M’s first U.S. Olympian in swimming while Canadian Julia Wilkinson swam in more Olympic races than any athlete in Canadian history. Triin Aljand and Alia Atkinson both competed in their second straight Olympic Games as well.

g reat coac hes While Aggie athletes have distinguished themselves as athletic and academic All-Americans and all-conference performers and have gone on to compete at the international level as well as the professional level, the Aggie coaching staff also has brought notoriety to the women's athletic program at Texas A&M. Women’s swimming coach Steve Bultman and women’s track & field coach Pat Henry each won their second consecutive Big 12 Coach of the Year awards in their respective sports after leading their teams to back-to-back Big 12 Championships. Women’s basketball coach Gary Blair was tabbed as the Big 12 Coach of the Year in 2007 after leading the Aggies to their first-ever conference championship in the sport. Softball coach Jo Evans earned Big 12 Coach of the year accolades three times, including this past year after sweeping both the Big 12 regular season and tournament titles. Evans and her staff were also honored as National Fastpitch Coaches Association Midwest Region Coaching Staff of the Year. Soccer coach G. Guerrieri was voted the 1997 and 2002 Big 12 Co-Coach of the Year and in 2005, diving coach Kevin Wright was named the Women's Big 12 Diving Coach of the Year for the fifth time in six years. Women’s tennis coach Bobby Kleinecke, who garnered Intercollegiate Tennis Association Region Coach of the Year honors in 2002, was named the Big 12 Coach of the Year for the second consecutive year in 2004.

Two-time SWC Volleyball Coach of the Year Laurie Corbelli, a member of the 1984 USA silver medal Olympic team, was named the District VI Coach of the Year in 1995, and in 2002 she received USA Volleyball's George L. Fisher “Leader in Volleyball”award. In addition to his collegiate coaching duties, Bultman has international coaching experience as well, having served as an assistant coach for the United States at the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, Korea and for Estonia in 2008. Gary Blair, a two-time national finalist for the prestigious Naismith Coach of the Year Award, brought instant respect to the Texas A&M women’s basketball program when he was first hired in 2003. One of the winningest active Division I coaches in the women’s game today, Blair previously led Arkansas to the 1998 NCAA Final Four and Stephen F. Austin to four NCAA Sweet 16 appearances. He followed that path of success by elevating A&M into one of the nation’s elite programs after just five seasons in Aggieland. The 2007 Big 12 Coach of the Year went on to lead the Aggies to a school-record 29-8 record and also claimed his 500th career victory against Iowa State on Feb. 20, 2008, to become the 36th all-time D-I coach to reach the milestone in NCAA history. Blair also holds the distinction of being one of only five coaches in NCAA history to take three schools to the NCAA Tournament and is the winningest women’s basketball coach in school history by percentage (.623). The 2004 hiring of track and field coach Pat Henry, one of the most successful coaches in NCAA history, continued to confirm A&M’s commitment to building champions. Henry came to Aggieland

after accumulating 27 NCAA team championships in his 17 seasons as head coach of the LSU men’s and women’s teams, and in 2005 he was named the Outstanding Women’s Track and Field Coach on the Silver Anniversary Team by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). On the international level, Henry was the head coach for Team USA at the 2007 IAAF World Championships in Osaka, Japan. In 2006, Henry coached the United States team during the World Cup in Athens, Greece. In 2007, Henry was chosen as the Midwest Region Women’s Coach of the Year by the USTFCCCA after leading A&M to a pair of Big 12 Championships along with the Midwest Region title. He also was selected as the South Central Region Women’s Coach of the Year during the indoor season. In addition, A&M’s Vince Anderson earned the Women’s Assistant Coach of the Year honor for the Midwest Region in the sprints/hurdles category. For the 2006 season, Anderson claimed the same coaching honor and was chosen as the national winner in the women’s sprints/hurdles category. Most recently, A&M athletics director Bill Byrne hired accomplished player and coach Trelle McCombs to take over the women's head golf coaching duties after long-time coach Jeanne Sutherland announced her retirement following consecutive Big 12 championships in 2007. McCombs led the Aggies to a Big 12 runner-up finish and an eight-place finish at the NCAA Championships in her first season at the helm of the program.

A&M women's athletics competed under the umbrella of the former Southwest Conference for 14 seasons (1982-96) and then became a charter member of the Big 12 Conference in 1996. The newly formed league immediately forged into the national limelight and continues to be one of the most highly competitive and prestigious leagues in the nation. The women's athletics program has made dramatic strides at Texas A&M during the last 33 years. And with A&M studentathletes continuing to compile team and individual awards at the international, national, regional and conference levels, Aggie teams are proudly carrying on the A&M winning tradition and the "Spirit of Aggieland" while steadfastly following the mission of building champions.

v o l l eyba l l The A&M volleyball team has appeared in the NCAA tournament 13 of the last 15 years, advancing to at least the second round 12 times during that stretch including two Elite Eight appearances. The Aggies, who have never lost a home NCAA postseason match, have garnered eight All-American citations in the last 11 years.

c r o ss co untry While the Texas A&M cross country team placed fourth in the NCAA South Central Region meet, Christina Munoz became the third consecutive Aggie female to qualify for the NCAA Championship field when she finished fifth at the regional to earn her place in the national race. An eighth-place finish at the Big 12 Championships by A&M earned a key point in the State Farm Lone Star Showdown as Munoz and Sarah Balfour earned All-Big 12 honors.

Anna Blagodarova defeated Stanford’s Celia Durkin in the 2008 NCAA Second Round to become the third player in A&M history to reach 100 career wins in singles matches.

Sarah Ammerman, who ranked in the top five in the Big 12 in kills, aces and points per game as a sophomore in 2007, was named to USA Volleyball’s A2 Team and captured a bronze medal at the 2008 U.S. Open Championships.

The athletic department is dedicated to the welfare and future of its student-athletes. This commitment is guided by the department’s sponsorship of life skills programming associated with its CHAMPS program. CHAMPS provides a well-rounded program for student-athletes to develop the individual skills necessary to lead successful and productive lives. Programming on campus relates to the following five commitments:

• Academic Excellence

is promoted through a full range of services that include orientation, advising, tutoring, academic skills training and the celebration of academic excellence.

• Athletic Excellence

is fostered by the department’s sponsorship of nine men’s and 11 women’s intercollegiate sports. This sponsorship is based on equity and compliance to all University, NCAA and Big 12 rules and regulations.

The wide range of activities is provided to allow the student-athlete the ability to choose the venue he or she feels most comfortable interacting with the community which supports them. Support and funding for these selfless volunteers and their organization is provided by the athletic department. It has been and will continue to be the goal of AAI to create an opportunity for young people to spend time and interact on a personal level with student-athletes of different ethnicity and gender. Through this interaction, it is hoped that studentathletes will appreciate the importance of service and take this appreciation with them as they leave the university environment.

George bush Presidential library and museum

T EXAS A & M

Located on a ninety-acre site on the West Campus of Texas A&M University, the Library and Museum is situated on a plaza adjoining the Presidential Conference Center and the Texas A&M Academic Center. It operates under the administration of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) under the provisions of the Presidential Libraries Act of 1955. T he ar c hives The archives contain over 38 million pages of personal papers and official documents from the Vice Presidency and Presidency as well as personal records from associates connected with President Bush’s public career. Records are housed in acidfree storage (Hollinger) boxes in a balanced humidity and temperature atmosphere. The archival storage area houses 13,000 cubic feet of records and the Library has a National Security vault holding 3,500 cubic feet of Presidential Records. In addition to memoranda, speeches, and reports found in the textual collection, there is an extensive audiovisual and photographic archive which includes approximately one million photographs and thousands of hours of audio and video tape.

R esear c h The Library maintains a manuscript and audiovisual research room on the second floor. The archival collections are utilized by students, scholars, authors and journalists. Research facilities can host 20 researchers at one time.

118

M useum The museum collection contains approximately 60,000 historical objects ranging from Head of State Gifts, gifts from the American people, and personally used items. The museum wing has 17,000 square feet of permanent exhibit space and 3,000 square feet of changing exhibit space. Permanent exhibits draw on the best of the museum collection to visually convey the essence of George Bush’s life and public service career and to illustrate historical events of this period in American history. Changing exhibits will explore topics on the Bush Administration, American history, American Presidents, etc.

C l assr o o m Of special significance is a classroom, the first of its kind in the Presidential Libraries network. The classroom may be used by student groups as a computer learning lab or as a traditional classroom. Like the other Presidential Libraries, the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum is also a research institution, totally integrated into the academic environment of Texas A&M University.

Co l l e c ti o ns The Bush Library’s collections include 38,000,000 pages of official and personal papers, 1,000,000 photographs, 2,500 hours of video-tape, and 70,000 museum objects. These rich primary sources document George Bush’s distinguished public career as congressman, Ambassador to the United Nations, Chief of the U.S. Liaison Office in China, Chairman of the Republican National Committee, Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Vice President and President. Included in the Museum’s exhibits are items ranging from a 1925 film of George Bush’s first steps in Kennebunkport, Maine, to records and memorabilia from his tenure as the 41st President of the United States. The Museum also contains a special section dedicated to former First Lady Barbara Bush and a classroom designed specifically for students from kindergarten

through high school. Operated by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum is the 10th Presidential Library in the United States.

Ge o r g e B ush The story of George Bush is a fascinating one of adventure, courage, dedication and service. Our museum exhibits reveal the unique influences and challenges which shaped George Bush’s life and presidency. On a larger scale, this museum encompasses much of U.S. history since 1941. Through original artifacts, film, photographs, documents, music, sound effects and interactive video and computerization, this special museum experience is both educational and entertaining. Some of the larger museum features include a World War II Avenger Torpedo Bomber, a 1947 Studebaker, a slab of the Berlin Wall, and precise replicas of President Bush’s Camp David and Air Force One offices. The presidential exhibits document George Bush’s exceptional leadership during times of crisis — the reunification of Germany, the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Gulf War. The importance of family, friends and politics also are part of the museum’s colorful story. Yet, the overall theme of the museum is the nobility of public service as exemplified by the lives of George and Barbara Bush.

Te x a s A & M U n i v e r s i t y


sports museum No school can match the athletic traditions of Texas A & M University. The superior athletes together with the famous Aggie Spirit combine to tell a story that is one of the most exciting and compelling in the nation.

T he Le g en d s g a l l ery The core of the exhibit is a gallery that celebrates and reinforces tradition and achievement, which are also the core of the university itself. Concrete gray walls and columns create an arena for the display of the university’s most treasured symbols of sports success in photographs and memorabilia that recall those uniquely gifted individuals who came before.

T he tra d iti o n o f the 12 th M an The excitement of Kyle Field, the revelry of the historic Aggie Bonfire, and the resounding yells of the student body will come to life in a sports museum unlike any other in the nation. It is fitting, too, that the museum is located in the Bernard C. Richardson Zone at Kyle Field. The story of A&M’s men’s and women’s varsity sports is presented using photos, film, artifacts and computer databases for interactive displays for all visitors to the campus to enjoy free of charge. The Texas A&M Sports Museum has the distinction of being the nation’s only all-sports museum funded primarily by former athletes. “This is a wonderful opportunity for all Lettermen to honor their teammates who deserve special recognition in a space such as the Sports Museum of Texas A&M University,” said Jim Singleton, Museum Committee Chairman.

M useum A reas

in contributing to the sports museum sustaining fund are encouraged to contact the Lettermen’s Association office at 1-800-310-3272 or the 12th Man Foundation at 979-846-8892. Current tax laws make the gift of appreciated stock very attractive.

The perimeter displays exhibit the different sports, as well as the Aggie Band, Yell Leaders, and each of the traditions that instill Aggie Spirit. These displays capture the spirit of sport and present the vitality of the on-going programs, teams and traditions of A&M Athletics.

The timewall occupies a corridor at the north end of the museum space. Black and white pictures of the earliest days of the university remind visitors of the founders’ efforts, while bright forms of life and color celebrate a prosperous present and foretell an unbridled future. Large panel-size graphics are punctuated by significant artifacts and highlighted by a sequence of programmed light and audio.

Database terminals and video interactives are positioned throughout the Museum. Visitors can peruse the photos of athletes or review famous films of great plays and memorable moments.

When visitors enter the “Zone” they will step into a large lobby area, shared by both the museum and the 12th Man Foundation, that will feature rotating exhibits focusing on sports at Texas A&M University. From the lobby, visitors will enter the museum. First, they are greeted with the Spirit of Aggieland including a donor wall and introductory exhibits to the Sports Museum. Visitors will experience several different exhibits in the Museum including the Timewall, Legends Gallery, Sport-by-Sport Perimeter Displays, and Interactive Computers.

D o n o r Wa l l The Sports Museum project was several years in the planning stages and is now a reality. The museum opened in August of 2001, in time for the first home football game in early September. The museum was built without the benefit of state or university money. The Lettermen’s Association in cooperation with the 12th Man Foundation raised those funds. Each sport has its own area, which is named in honor of a team or letterwinner. Those interested

the big 12 conference Softball: The First Sport of the Big 12 Conference The Big 12 Conference became a reality on February 25, 1994, when former Big Eight Conference members joined with Baylor, Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech of the Southwest Conference to pursue common academic and athletic endeavors. Although formal operations began July 1, 1996, softball competed for the first-ever Big 12 championship of any sport in the spring of 1996. All other sports began competition in the 1996-97 academic year. The creation of the Big 12 established one of the most formidable softball conferences in the nation. Four of the eight teams participating in the first season of Big 12 play advanced to the NCAA tournament: Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M. The Big 12 softball membership expanded to its current number of 10 teams when Baylor and Texas joined the race in 1997 after choosing not to compete with their newly established programs in the conference’s inaugural season.

No fewer than three Big 12 teams have advanced to NCAA postseason play every year since the league’s inception. In 1997, the second year of the conference, the Big 12 sent a record seven of 10 teams — Colorado and Kansas State do not sponsor softball — into postseason play. The league also has been well represented in the Women’s College World Series and has had at least one team advance to the prestigious eight-team event in 10 of the last 11 years. Oklahoma defeated UCLA in the 2000 championship game to win the league’s first softball national championship, joining Texas A&M as the only other school in the Big 12 to win a national title in softball. Oklahoma also participated in the 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004 Women’s College World Series, and in 1998 a record three Big 12 teams — Nebraska, Oklahoma State and Texas — were in the national championships. Big 12 teams have made 33 total appearances in the College World Series. Texas A&M, which has captured three national championship titles, and Oklahoma are the only Big 12 teams to win a softball national championship. The Aggies won the AIAW title in 1982 and the NCAA national championship trophy in 1983 and 1987. In addition, A&M was the national champion

The Big 12 Softball Championship returns to ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City for the 14th consecutive year. The championship will be a three-day, single-elimination event with all 10 schools that sponsor softball participating (Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech) while the winner will earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Division I Softball Championship. As the first sport contested in league history, softball held the first postseason tournament in 1996. Oklahoma won the inaugural league title, which was the only crown handed out that season. From that year on, both a regular season and postseason champion have been awarded. Overall, Texas (1999, 2002-03, ‘05) has won the most tournament championships with four followed by Nebraska (1998, 2000, ‘04) and Oklahoma (1996, 2001, ’07), which have three each. Missouri (1997), Kansas (2006) and defending champion Texas A&M have claimed top honors once. In addition to the Big 12 Championships, Hall of Fame Stadium has hosted the Women’s College World Series 18 times, including the last 12. A Big 12 squad has advanced 15 times to the Women’s College World Series in the last 13 years, including Oklahoma’s national championship in 2000.

runner-up in 1984, 1986 and 2008. In all, A&M has been to the NCAA Women’s College World Series seven times and has participated in the NCAA tournament 19 times since the NCAA’s inception of women’s softball 27 years ago. Teams are slated to play 18 league games, two against each team. The regular season conference winning percentage is used to seed all 10 teams for the Big 12 Tournament scheduled for May 8-10 at the Don Porter ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Okla., the same site of the 2009 Women’s College World Series. The winner of the tournament will be crowned the conference champion and will be granted an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.
