The Texas A&M volleyball team takes great pride in giving back to the Bryan/College Station community. The Aggies participate in numerous charitable activities throughout the year, including the annual Aggies CAN Food Drive, various coat and toy drives, HOSTS (Help One Student to Succeed) and The Big Event. In addition, the team enjoys giving clinics at local schools, introducing young children to the sport of volleyball.


“The Big Event is a powerful and meaningful way for not just student-athletes, but all student organizations to gather and give back to the community and show our appreciation. Working together like this gives a new dimension to the word ‘team’, and to be able to participate and help in something bigger than yourself is very rewarding and helps you understand what is important in life.” – Mary Batis The Aggie volleyball team participates in the annual Big Event, the largest student-led service project in the nation. This year, the team helped with a beautification project at a local church and also helped construct a sand volleyball court.

THE AGGIES

COMING OF AGE 2008 AGGIE VOLLEYBALL SEASON OUTLOOK Texas A&M is determined more than ever to make noise and turn heads this season. The Aggies not only want to cause a scene in the competitive Big 12 Conference, but they intend to crash the NCAA party after being left at the door last year despite posting a 21-10 record. “I am eagerly anticipating that this team is going to just let loose and really take off,” said A&M head coach Laurie Corbelli, who is entering her 16th season at the helm of the Aggies. “I feel it coming. This team is on the verge of doing great things.” With the majority of the players being experienced juniors and seniors, this close-knit seasoned team is coming of age. They have been through two heartbreaking seasons and saw A&M’s streak of 13 consecutive NCAA tournament appearances come to an end. Despite the adversity, the team has bonded like no other and built an unmatched resolve. With increased maturity, understanding and talent, the Aggies are focused on erasing the bad memories of the last two seasons by having the experience of a lifetime in 2008. “This team won’t be satisfied with an NCAA second-round match,” Corbelli said. “They are setting their hearts and their minds on going very deep into the tournament. They have the ambition. They have the work ethic. Maybe more than in the last five years, we have a group that so much of it is about the intangibles and the belief. This group just gets it.”

addition, Corbelli welcomes five talented newcomers, four of whom enrolled at A&M in January and gained valuable playing experience within the system by participating in spring drills, as well as going on the team’s well-timed two-week training trip to Europe in June. Four of the five returning starters have at least two years of starting experience. Senior right-side hitter KELSEY BRYANT (6-2) and junior outside hitters SARAH AMMERMAN (6-2) and MARY BATIS (6-0) have started for the Aggies since their freshman seasons. Junior setter KRISTEN SCHEVIKHOVEN (5-9), who transferred to A&M last season, also has two years of starting experience, including her freshman campaign at Northern Colorado. Senior JILLIAN PHILLIPS (6-1), one of the most athletic and tenacious middle blockers in the Big 12, anchored the Aggies’ front row in her first season as a starter last year, hitting .334 and leading the team with 1.2 blocks per game. “This is one of the most veteran teams we have had in awhile, and the majority of them are only juniors,”

Corbelli said. “They’ve all matured. They’ve been patient yet aggressively striving to get better. I know what they have put into this program, and it is their turn. The time is right. They are ready, and there are no excuses.” New to the Aggies’ starting lineup but not new to the team or to a starting role is senior DARLA DONALDSON. The fierce 6-2 middle blocker transferred to A&M last season after starting two seasons at Cal State Northridge. She is expected to step in for Kelly Stanton, who completed her eligibility last year. The other two returning letterwinners – setter JOLA KELNER (6-0) and outside hitter JENNIFER BANSE (6-0) – also have significant court experience entering their third season with the program. They have played the vital role of being first off the bench for their respective positions and could just as easily be considered starters based on their ability to step in without the team skipping a beat. “We have a lot of options,” Corbelli said. “Both setters are highly trained, know the system and the players love playing with both of them. We have depth at the outside hitter position. They are experienced and reliable, and being primary passers, their passing has leveled out and really helped us achieve a more balanced attack more often. “They all have steadied their confidence in all areas of their game. That is what investing those seasons on the court is going to be bringing them. They haven’t sat on the bench as freshmen and sophomores wondering what it will be like when they get into the Big

into the season. Using the NCAA’s newly instituted 25-point scoring format, the Aggies experimented with different lineups and strategies while playing increasingly competitive youth, junior national and professional teams. “The Europe trip was such great volleyball, and the team rose to the occasion,” Corbelli said. “They had some great experiences there, and it is something they will remember. The competition really lent itself to helping us build our momentum as we went through the trip, and I expect it is going to carry over nicely into our pre-conference.”

MARY BATIS who was slowed by a bout with anemia last year, and the return of the athletic and dynamic Phillips, the Aggies are a constant threat in the middle both on offense and defense. Although the middle blocker position is an area of strength, it also could be a major concern should an injury occur. Bryant, an excellent blocker and deceptive attacker on the right, would be the top choice to move into the position if needed. Should Bryant move to the middle, Batis offers options on the right, having competed at that position in the spring, as well as Ringel. The team also will be relying on Faulkner and Ringel, who will anchor the back row defense, and along with the other primary passers will be critical in order to get the offense firing on all cylinders. “Going into preseason drills, my concerns are, No. 1, serving and passing, and No. 2, staying healthy,” Corbelli said. “They will be critical to our success. If we are to reach the goals of a Big 12 title and going deeper than we’ve ever gone in the tournament, then it will be required that we serve and pass with the best and that we stay healthy.”

second in the Missouri Valley Conference, was not one of the league’s three teams selected to the NCAA tournament field. “LSU, Minnesota and Creighton are incredibly strong programs and will give us all we can handle,” Corbelli said. A&M makes its home debut Sept. 5-6, hosting American, Siena and BYU. Both American and Siena won their conference tournaments last year to earn an automatic berth into the NCAA tournament, and BYU ranked No. 12 in the final AVCA Top 25 after advancing to the NCAA regionals. “This home tournament may be one of the best we have had in a long time, since we had UCLA here, and that has been a while,” Corbelli said. “Both American and Siena are coming off conference championships and return a lot of experience, and BYU has a great tradition of strong volleyball. We are going to have some great competition.” After a Tuesday home match against Texas State, A&M plays its final preseason tournament Sept. 12-13 at the University of San Diego, where the Aggies take on Cal State Fullerton and Southern Mississippi and then wrap up the tournament against the host Toreros, who advanced to the NCAAs and ranked No. 25 in the final poll last year. A&M opens Big 12 play at Iowa State on Sept. 17. The Cyclones advanced to the Sweet 16 last year and ranked No. 17 in the final poll. The Aggies’ first Big 12 home match is Sept. 21 against Oklahoma, another NCAA participant that came back from a 0-2 game deficit to defeat A&M at G. Rollie in both teams’ league opener last year. The loss potentially cost A&M a trip to the NCAAs. The Aggies conclude the regular season at Missouri on Nov. 28. The Tigers tied A&M for sixth place in the Big 12 in 2007, but unlike the Aggies, they received an at-

espite going .500 in one of the top leagues -- if not the top league -- in the country last year, A&M’s weakerthan-expected preseason schedule was a point of contention for the NCAA selection committee. There will be no room for that argument this season as the Aggies embark on an ambitious schedule starting August 29-30 at the Bluejay Invitational in Omaha, Neb. Overall, seven of A&M’s 10 preseason matches will be against teams that advanced to the NCAA tournament in 2007. In addition, 12 of 20 conference matches will be against NCAA teams. “This schedule would have been a nightmare last year, but this year we are very ready for it,” Corbelli said. The Aggies open against SEC-rival LSU and then face Minnesota, both NCAA tournament teams last season. A&M closes out the weekend against host Creighton, which, despite finishing tied for JILLIAN PHILLIPS, KELSEY

In the players’ minds, they have that kind of goal.”

Following the match at Missouri, the Aggies expect to be eagerly awaiting to see who their next opponent will be when the 64-team NCAA tournament field is announced on Nov. 30. “Our goal is clearly to win a Big 12 championship,” Corbelli said. “The goal is clearly to be rewarded with a great spot in the NCAA tournament, and to go further than we’ve ever gone is a great goal for this team.

hen the Corbellis came to A&M in 1993, the twosome took over a program that had never placed higher than a secondplace tie in the six-team Southwest Conference, had never won 20 or more games in a season, nor had advanced to the NCAA playoffs in the six years preceding their hiring. In only their first season at the helm of the Aggies, however, the Corbellis turned around a team that had finished in a fourth-place tie in league play with a 3-7 record and 19-17 overall mark the previous year to a 7-3, second-place showing in conference play and a trip to the second round of the NCAA Championships. A&M ended the season with an impressive 27-8 record, making Laurie the winningest first-year coach in the history of the program. The triumphs have continued to multiply. After ending the 1994 season with a reappearance in the second round of the NCAA tournament and a 19-14 record, A&M began the 1995 campaign with a vengeance by defeating defending national champion and top-ranked Stanford in the second match of the season. At the time, the victory marked only the second time in the history of A&M men’s and women’s athletics that an Aggie team defeated a No. 1-ranked team

ut whether they were real or imaginary, good or bad, each of these partnerships managed to go down in history. In March 1993, Texas A&M officials resurrected a dynamic duo from the pages of volleyball history, hiring 1984 Olympic silver medalist Laurie Corbelli and her husband, John Corbelli, an assistant coach for the ’84 Olympic Team, to take over a promising women’s volleyball program. With Laurie as the head coach and John as the associate head coach, the coaching tandem instantly established itself as one of the most highly respected college coaching staffs in the country. The couple utilized their elite playing experiences and coaching knowledge to rebuild a program and rapidly develop it into a top national contender that has for the most part been a permanent fixture in the NCAA tournament. It didn’t take long for Laurie to earn the honorable distinction of being the winningest coach in the history of the A&M volleyball program. Laurie, who sports an overall 22-year career record of 427-250 (.631), enters the 2008 campaign with a 327-144 record and a .694 winning percentage in 15 seasons at A&M. The Corbellis directed the Aggies to within one match of reaching the Final Four in both 1999 and 2001 and have led A&M to the NCAA regional semifinals five times. Overall, the Corbellis’ teams have reached the NCAA tournament 13 times in the last 15 years and are only one of 18 teams in the nation to accomplish that feat. In addition, A&M is one of only 11 teams to advance to the NCAA second round at least 12 times since the Corbellis came to A&M in 1993. Furthermore, the Aggies have reached the 20-win milestone 11 of 15 seasons with the Corbellis at the helm, and A&M has been ranked in the final Top 25 Poll nine of the past 13 years. With the Aggies’ 2006 No. 4 nationally ranked recruiting class beginning to blossom, extraordinary feats will undoubtedly continue to accumulate.

during the regular season. The Aggies finished second in the SWC behind eventual national runner-up Texas with an 8-2 record and appeared in the NCAA tournament for an unprecedented third consecutive season. After advancing to the Sweet Sixteen, A&M finished the season with a 23-7 record and was ranked No. 15 in the final coaches poll, a then all-time high for the A&M volleyball program.

he Aggies broke into the national top 10 for the first time in the history of the program in 1996 and held the No. 10 spot for four weeks. They finished third in the inaugural season of the Big 12 Conference with a 15-5 record and ended the season with a 25-8 mark after advancing to the second round of

the NCAA tournament for the fourth consecutive year. A&M took another step forward in 1997 as the Aggies won first and second-round matches in the NCAA Championship’s expanded 56-team field. It marked the first time A&M had won two matches in the tournament. Despite dropping a tight five-game battle against sixth-ranked BYU in the East Regional semifinal, the Aggies finished 26-8 and ranked No. 13, another record-high in the season-ending poll. The Corbellis’ 1998 recruiting class was ranked sixth in the nation, and the group promptly played an integral part in another successful season for the Aggies. With three freshmen — Jenna Moscovic, Michelle Cole and Brandi Mount — in the starting lineup, the Aggies snapped No. 3 Nebraska’s 36-match regular-season winning streak and were the only Big 12 team to defeat the league champion and Final Fourbound team that year. The victory against the Huskers helped bolster A&M to a season-ending eight-match conference winning streak, equaling the longest conference winning streak in school history. The Aggies advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament and finished with a 21-9 record and ranked 18th in the coaches final Top 25 Poll. In 1999, the Corbellis guided the Aggies to their first NCAA Elite Eight appearance, stunning No. 3 Hawai’i in Honolulu in the round of 16. A&M finished the season with a 28-6 record and ranked an all-time high ninth in the final coaches Top 25 Poll. In addition, senior middle blocker Amber Woolsey became the first Aggie to garner first-team All-America laurels by the AVCA. Another home victory against the higher-ranked Huskers earlier in the ’99 season helped boost the Aggies to their all-time high second-place finish in the Big 12 standings, one win behind three-time champion Nebraska. Furthermore, the Aggies completed the season 16-0 in the friendly confines of G. Rollie White Coliseum, including two home victories in the NCAA tournament, marking the first time an A&M team finished a season undefeated at home with the exception of the 1978 team, which went 4-0.

aurie became the all-time winningest coach in Texas A&M volleyball history on Oct. 18, 2000, posting the 181st victory of her Aggie career as the Aggies defeated rival Texas and posted their first win in Austin since 1979. The Aggies went on to tie for second in the Big 12 behind eventual nationalchampion Nebraska with a 14-6 mark and advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament despite returning only two starters from A&M’s then-most celebrated season in the program’s 25-year history. Moscovic earned All-American honorable mention from Volleyball Magazine as A&M set all-time season records and ranked second in the national statistics in both kills and assists per game. The Aggies finished the year ranked 23rd in the final national Top 25 Poll with a 20-9 record. The Corbellis’ 2001 Aggies equaled the most successful season in A&M volleyball history, reaching the NCAA Elite Eight for the second time. The Aggies ranked 11th in the final poll in 2001 after upsetting No. 6 Wisconsin in the regional semifinals and finishing the season with a 26-6 record. Four of the six losses were to Final Four teams, including two setbacks to eventual national champion Stanford. In her final season, Moscovic led the nation in triple-doubles and became only the second Aggie to capture first-team All-American laurels by the AVCA. In addition, she directed the 2001 squad to a No. 2 ranking in the national statistics in both kills and assists per game for the second consecutive season. In the competitive Big 12, Moscovic and the Aggies placed second to Final Four-bound Nebraska for the third consecutive season and tied the school record for league wins with a 16-4 mark. In 2002, the Aggies were rebuilding after losing five starters following one of the most successful seasons in the history of the program. Despite the inexperienced lineup, A&M managed to reach the second round of the NCAA tournament for the 10th consecutive year before being eliminated by the national-champion Women of Troy. Freshman phenom Laura Jones and sophomore middle blocker Melissa Munsch led the youth movement as the Aggies went 21-10 overall and 12-8 in the Big 12. The Aggies entered the 2003 season unranked; nonetheless, the Corbellis managed to direct A&M to its third NCAA regional appearance in five years and a No. 16 final ranking.

tacy Sykora (1995-98) was the Corbellis’ first player to earn All-America distinction from the AVCA, earning second team honors in both 1997 and 1998. The charismatic Sykora went on to earn the ultimate honor of being named Olympian, becoming the first Aggie to play on an Olympic volleyball. The former A&M outside hitter honored her collegiate coach by donning the No. 5 jersey -- the same number Laurie wore at the ’84 Olympic Games – and was Team USA’s starting libero at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. Sykora went on to earn “Best Digger” laurels at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. Most recently she became A&M’s first-ever varsity athlete in any sport to be a three-time Olympian as she also was named to the 2008 Olympic Team. The Corbellis have had at least one student-athlete receive All-America recognition in 10 of the last 13 years. Senior setter Suzy Wente was named AllAmerica honorable mention by Volleyball Magazine in 1995 and also captured SWC Player of the Year accolades, a first by an A&M player.

he Aggies became one of only six teams to make a 12th consecutive appearance in the NCAA second round in 2004. A&M ranked No. 20 in the final poll after finishing the year with a 19-9 mark, including a 14-6 record in the Big 12. And for the first time in A&M history, two Aggies were named AllAmerica in the same year as Jones was named to the AVCA’s second team and senior Munsch was named to the third team. In addition, Munsch was named the Big 12 Co-Defensive Player, a first by an A&M player. A&M made its 13th straight NCAA appearance in 2005 but was eliminated in the first round for the first time in the Corbellis’ 13-year tenure after falling to Northwestern in five games and finishing with a 16-14 record. Jones, who broke more than 30 A&M records in her final season, led the nation with 6.09 kills per game and capped her illustrious career by becoming the third player in A&M history to be named to the AVCA first team. It marked the eighth AVCA All-America honor bestowed to a Corbelli-coached player in nine years. Despite having four freshmen, sometimes five, on the court, A&M began 2006 with a 7-1 record, including a win against Loyola in the Aggies’ home opener on Sept. 8 which gave Laurie her 400th career victory and her 300th win at A&M. The youth-laden Aggies struggled to a 5-15 mark in the extremely competitive Big 12 and finished the season 12-16 overall and missed the NCAA Championships for the first time under the Corbellis’ tenure. The Aggies got off to a promising start in 2007, setting a school record by winning their first 10 matches. A&M finished the regular season 21-10 and was stunned when the Aggies did not receive an at-large big to the NCAA tournament.

Laurie also has collected the hardware and in 2002 received USA Volleyball’s distinguished George L. Fisher “Leader in Volleyball” award, recognizing her for her exceptional endeavors on behalf of the sport. She received SWC Coach of the Year honors in both 1994 and 1995 and was named AVCA District VI Coach of the Year in ’95. In addition, Laurie was voted the Texas A&M Coach of the Year for 1999-2000 by the Aggie student-athletes.

T

he Corbellis form one of several current husband-wife coaching tandems in NCAA Division I volleyball. They first coached together as members of the staff of the 1984 U.S. Women’s National Team that toured the Far East. With John as the head

Director of Athletics Bill Byrne and 2006 senior Christi Hahn present Laurie Corbelli with a plaque and a match ball to celebrate her 400th win after the Loyola Chicago match, Sept. 8, 2006. in 2004 and first-team honors in 2005, Aggies have earned a total of 16 All-American awards during the Corbellis’ 15-year tenure. In addition, A&M volleyball athletes have received 28 all-region / all-district citations and 26 first-team conference awards under the Corbellis’ direction.

S

tudent-athletes also have been recognized for their accomplishments in the classroom and in the community throughout the Corbellis’ reign. Kim Mitchell earned GTE Academic All-America first-team honors and was the Texas A&M / Bill Erwin Scholar-Athlete of the Year in the 1993-94 academic year. Defensive specialist and medical-school bound Beth Weynand was named to the Verizon Academic All-American first team in 2001 after being named to the academic All-American third team and receiving the Texas A&M / Bill Erwin Scholar-Athlete of the Year award in the 2000-01 academic year. Senior defensive specialist / libero Rebecca Wynalda, the 2003-04 Texas A&M / Bill Erwin Scholar-Athlete of the Year, was a member of the academic All-American third team in 2003. Christi Hahn, who was a member of the 2005 The ESPN Magazine Academic All-America third team as a junior, was a first-team academic All-American in 2006 and was named the 2006-07 Texas A&M / Bill Erwin Scholar-Athlete of the Year. A three-time Gathright Scholar Academic Excellence Award recipient, an honor given annually to the outstanding sophomore, junior and senior of each academic college at Texas A&M, Hahn also was a member of the academic alldistrict team from 2004-06 and joined a long list of Aggies who have represented A&M on the Academic All-District VI Volleyball Team.

coach and Laurie as the assistant, the team competed in tournaments in Seoul, Hong Kong and Singapore. Before coming to A&M, they earned recognition for being the only husband and wife to serve concurrently as head coaches of Division I volleyball programs. They coached against each other in California, with Laurie at Santa Clara and John at San Jose State. Though Laurie is 1-3 versus her husband in the head-to-head series, she has proven that she is a winner. In her three years at Santa Clara, she posted a 61-35 record and was twice honored as the West Coast Conference Coach of the Year. In 1992, she led Santa Clara to a 21-11 record and collected WCC and West Region Coach of the Year honors as the Broncos won the league title and made their first-ever appearance in the NCAA postseason tournament. In 1991, she was named WCC Co-Coach of the Year after directing the Broncos to a 10-4 sec-

ond-place conference finish. Santa Clara went on to earn its first-ever postseason appearance, where the Broncos finished third in the National Invitational Volleyball Championships. Santa Clara ended the season with a 26-11 record, the best finish in school history.

R

aised in Garland, Texas, the former Laurie Flachmeier first served as a head coach in 1986 at the University of San Francisco. During her four years at USF, the Lady Dons posted a 39-71 ledger. In 1987, USF finished third in the competitive WCC, and Laurie was named WCC Coach of the Year. While coaching, she also was pursuing her bachelor’s degree in education, which she completed at USF in 1988. Along with the successes she has achieved on the sidelines, Laurie also has tasted success on the court and in 1998 was presented the prestigious Flo Hyman All-Time Great Player Award by USA Volleyball. After playing three years for Texas Lutheran College, Laurie played for the United States Women’s National Volleyball team from 1978-84 and was a two-time member of the U.S. Olympic Team. After the boycott of the 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow, Laurie returned to help lead the U.S. team to a silver medal at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles. She also was a member of the National Team that competed in the ’78 and ’82 World Championships, the ’79 and ’83 Pan American Games and the ’79 World Cup Competition. In 1987, Laurie played Major League Volleyball for the San Jose Golddiggers and was named the Most Valuable Player in the league’s inaugural season. She also was named MVP of the MLV’s season-ending all-star game in 1989. Laurie has participated in volleyball competitions in more than 25 countries and has served as an instructor in more than 50 national volleyball clinics around the country. In addition, she has served on numerous committees for USA Volleyball and the American Volleyball Coaches Association and also has served as a motivational speaker for numerous organizations.

J

ohn Corbelli’s credentials are just as impressive. In addition to Laurie’s 22 seasons in collegiate volleyball, John brings 29 years of coaching experience to the A&M program. John, who served as assistant coach for the 2008 U.S. Women’s Junior National Team that won gold at the NORCECA Women’s Junior Continental Championship at Saltillo, Mexico, came from San Jose State, where he spent three years as the head women’s volleyball coach and five years as an assistant coach. He was hired as the head coach prior to the 1991 season after serving as the interim head coach in 1990. In his first season at San Jose State’s helm, John guided the Spartans to a 21-8 record and their ninthconsecutive postseason appearance. After the Spartans went 12-14 in 1991, his 1992 squad posted a 14-17 record and placed fifth in the competitive Big West conference race. Born in Denver, Colo., and raised in Hawai’i, John

a program that they classified as a sleeping giant. Laurie and John provide similar coaching philosophies to form what they describe as a complimentary partnership that sees eye-to-eye. They also contribute equally impressive backgrounds to A&M. They were successful as a coach-player combo in the Pan American and Olympic Games and as a coaching duo in the Far East. Both have compiled resumes that speak for themselves, and the combination of the two continues to prove victorious for Texas A&M volleyball.

Assistant Coaching Career: • • • • •

Texas A&M (1992-Present) … (Named associate head coach in 1995) San Jose State (1985-89) U.S. National Women’s Volleyball Team (1982-84) Nebraska (1981-82) UC Santa Barbara – men’s and women’s teams (1979-80)

earned a bachelor’s degree in economics in 1979 from the University of California at Santa Barbara, where he was a four-year letterwinner for the nationally ranked Gauchos. Upon graduation, John made his collegiate coaching debut at his alma mater, serving as the assistant coach for both the men’s and women’s volleyball teams. He then moved on to the University of Nebraska in 1981, where he served as an assistant coach for the women’s team that won a Big Eight championship. In 1982, John was named an assistant coach for the U.S. National Women’s Volleyball Team. During his tenure, the team — including Laurie — won a silver medal at the 1983 Pan American Games, as well as at the 1984 Olympics. John joined the coaching staff at San Jose State in July 1985 and also served as the head coach of the Chrysler Women’s Volleyball Team that won USVBA

n the spring of 1993, A&M officials were looking for an experienced leader for the Aggie volleyball program, and the Corbellis were seeking to fulfill the one dream that had eluded them — the chance to coach together once again. In the process, A&M secured two coaches who have achieved feats that dreams are made of, while the Corbellis reached their dream of working together to rouse

Q&A WITH LAURIE CORBELLI that Texas A&M athletics allows me to give kids that opportunity is really cool.

S TA F F

W H AT I S I T L I K E TO COACH AT T E X A S A & M ? I imagine it is unlike any other place, with all the unique traditions, the family feel, the complete college-town atmosphere and just having the potential to become a great program given the support from the administration. It has really been a career dream come true. The Aggie spirit certainly makes it the most fun, knowing how enthusiastic and passionate Aggies are for their school and their teams. Our administration realizes what it takes to be the best to get to the top. The philosophy is that we want to do everything that we are allowed to do to the extent of the NCAA rules. The administration is going to provide it if it is allowed. When you know that your administration is behind you in so many ways, it truly inspires you.

W H AT I S YO U R COACHING PHILOSOPHY? I know that what goes around comes around. What I give to the team and what I can inspire them to give to the program, the amount and the intensity, will reward us in the future. I try to do the right thing with people being the priority in the equation; what is most important for these young people. That is so much bigger than just volleyball, and the fact that we are teachers of life, not just of the game of volleyball, is the responsibility I feel when I make decisions regarding the players and the program. At the same time, finding that fine balance between demanding a ton of energy and time commitment from these girls, and also respecting the balance that they need in their lives. I treasure those kinds of decisions every day, and I don’t take them lightly. I’ve been coaching for 20-plus years, and when I’m asked what is the most important thing I have learned from all my different seasons, my only answer now is how the teamwork and attitude are underrated at any point. I think they are the very most important parts of team sports.

H O W I M P O R TA N T I S FA M I LY? To me, family is what comes first for these players. It feels safe for parents to have their kids come play here. Texas A&M has that

54

W H AT D O YO U LOOK FOR WHEN RECRUITING A P L AY E R?

community, family feel and the 12th Man. You are embraced from all of the different programs as soon as you arrive on campus, and you are a part of something. Because John and I happen to be a married couple, we train the team together, and we spend a lot of time with them. We are very important influences, because we see them nearly every day of their college life. That is one of the big reasons we coach, because we love being involved with young people and being a very influential part in this time of their lives. We share very strong values, and we show them a lot of care and love. Volleyball is our vehicle for portraying that in a lot of ways. And just the fact that we are all together on a team really makes it like family.

W H AT H A S B E E N OR IS MOST R E WA R D I N G F O R YO U A S A C O A C H ? The most rewarding thing for me is seeing my players go from age 18 to 22 having achieved their dreams or goals of having a positive and challenging volleyball career in college and getting an awesome education, and becoming bright, contributing members of society. We get only four years to help shape these kids, and I get to see the metamorphosis they go through from being young to being mature, contributing members of society. We keep track of them for the rest of their lives and see them become accountants, doctors, lawyers, teachers and mothers. I take a lot of pride in knowing that I played a large role in helping that develop. Former players continue to give back to the program, and many work our summer camps and get to know the younger players. I see all these mixtures of players from different teams, but they all have the trademark of Aggie volleyball, the style, the love of it, their appreciation of it. And having them coming back to contribute is a positive sign, and it feels good to the Corbellis.

COMMENT ON HELPING PROVIDE A N E D U C AT I O N THROUGH VO L L E Y B A L L... A lot of the players who have come through the A&M program would not have been able to attend such a wonderful, highranked university without having a volleyball scholarship. The academic support at A&M has been evaluated as one of the best, and I can think of several players who probably would not have a degree if it had not been for Aggie volleyball. Who knows what would have happened in their lives had they not had the opportunity, and seeing them use their degree now gives me a very strong feeling of pride. I’m excited that I get the opportunity to help some kids that may not otherwise get the opportunity, and the fact

My eye is drawn immediately to the best athletes on the court. The athletic ability is the jumping, the movement. That is the first thing I notice, but second is seeing a player who instinctively can play this game. Usually the players who have an instinct for the game just have a passion for volleyball. They have taken the time to learn the game and think the game and live and breath the game. Just the passion and the attitude and understanding of the huge role each player plays is invaluable, maybe even more so than the talent. I’ve seen some great players who don’t look like athletes, and I’d have them in my program in a heartbeat if they wanted to come be an Aggie. Sports are very mental, and the player whose game seems to come a lot easier really stands out. You can see it in the decision making in rallies, the shot selection, the confidence they show, and the ease in which they handle themselves on the court. Those things are contagious on the court. Whether or not they are athletic, if they understand the game and effectively play the ball, then I really like those types of players. There are a lot of different ways to play this game, and I don’t ever want to get myself into a position that I am tunnel-visioned on one type of player. I am looking for the best package.

D O YO U H AV E A PA R T I C U L A R S T Y L E T H AT YO U L I K E TO R U N? I’m real big into ball control. Our defense and our ball control and the importance we put on fundamentals are what make it pretty volleyball and effective volleyball. It probably gets old for the players because it is beaten into their heads that first ball goes to target. No exceptions! That then allows us to be a fast and precise offensive team. A fasttempo offense is a little harder to perfect and it takes a little more time to train, but it is a lot more

fun. You can be more creative, and the variety helps keep the athletes sharp and focused. We will always have that passion for the ball control game, the defensive games where you just pop everything up and balls are going right to target because of all the repetition that we do. Also as the game is changing, the emphasis is shifting even more to the serving and the blocking to score sooner in a rally than waiting to have to play defense. We want to serve tougher and more strategically even more than before to take the opponent out of system and not allow them to get the ball to the desired player. And we are making sure our blocking is right on target, because as big as these players are getting now, the blockers are definitely taking up more space at the net. Once we get our serving and blocking where we want it, and if we have trained the team defensively the way we would like to, it is a lot simpler and we can get our speed of offense going back at the opponent.

D E S C R I B E W H AT IT IS LIKE P L AY I N G I N T H E B I G 12 CONFERENCE. If you love to compete, you are in the right place because it is competitive every single night. The beauty of it is that it generates builtin motivation, built-in inspiration. I love it, and it is the way to go. The Big 12 really is a power conference. It is continuously getting ranked in the top two or three in the nation. We continue to get six or seven teams in the NCAAs every year. One of the hugest goals any team in the nation could have is to try to be the best team in this league. Winning in a conference like the Big 12 — even having a winning record in the Big 12 — is very, very challenging, especially playing 10 matches on the road and 10 at home. But I do believe it makes us better by a long shot. We’ve proven through all the years that playing in the Big 12 has prepared us sufficiently for the NCAA tournament. Twelve out of 15 seasons, we’ve gone to the second round and have gone beyond that half the time. We would not have been prepared for the NCAAs if not for our Big 12 schedule. And once in the NCAAs, it seems easier to get the team ready to go against whomever we have to meet. We’ve seen that style and those types of players in the Big 12. We’ve made

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


so many different adjustments on our side of the court during conference matches, and we’ve dealt with showing up in another gym and having even more pressure on us with possibly fans that are not welcoming. Just all of that makes your team less apprehensive when you enter the NCAAs.

WHY SHOULD POTENTIAL STUDENTAT H L E T E S CO N S I D E R CO M I N G TO A&M?

H O W D O YO U R EXPERIENCES WITH THE O LY M P I C S C O N T I N U E TO B E N E F I T YO U? I benefited so greatly from my commitment to eight hours a day for seven years to achieve a dream. I learned that it was so important to be disciplined and so important to train hard. I did it and I’m still alive, so I know my athletes can do it. I just feel like when a player is coming to play for me that I owe them. They are pretty much saying, ‘Here I am coach. I’m making the commitment for you to help me become the best I can be.’ I am not going to cheat them of that, and I know that what I ask them to do is not too much, not impossible, yet it is something they might not have ever tried before. I’ve seen so many tears of happiness, joy and pride after achieving something because of what we have demanded and because of the commitment that we ask. That is what I lived for seven years; the experiences and just the blood, sweat and tears to

get to your dream. We try to make sure that it is a dream for Aggies to become a Final Four team, and we make sure that our training is with that level of intensity. We ask for that level of commitment daily. I’m not going to send them away from here not having challenged them to the ultimate. One of my biggest goals is to make sure I am challenging them and pushing them every day. I also just know the rewards of the experience. Even though I have a silver medal, it wasn’t that particular match that I was playing for. I look back, and it was those seven years that I would do all over again because of how it enriched my life as a whole. When my athletes are finished at A&M, I would like for them to be saying, ‘I would like to do that all over again, and I would do it in a heartbeat.’

S TA F F

They will get the complete experience of school spirit, u n b e ata b l e a ca d e m i c s a n d exciting volleyball. They will have volleyball coaches who are very knowledgeable and very caring. In addition, they will have an opportunity to be a part of something that will be in their lives forever, much more than they can even realize. Sometimes when I talk to some of our former players, I ask what has been a benefit of being from A&M. A lot of the answers relate to just the connections they have made, the people they have met, being an Aggie and going out into the working world and the business world. That Aggie ring has just connected them to so many people in so many instances no matter where they were, in Europe, in the big cities of New York and L.A., sitting on an airplane or in an airport or at a meeting. The Aggie ring has sparked conversation and

possible new friendships and new avenues to pursue or build a career. Because Aggies are so supportive of each other and want each other to be successful, that is one of the top things that I really try to emphasize to the players. Once an Aggie, always an Aggie.

W H AT I S I T L I K E TO C O M P E T E IN FRONT OF THE 12 T H M A N ? It still gives me goose bumps when the band starts playing and the students are standing and showing their strong support for the Aggies. It is unmatched. Our players say the same thing. It is an event and an experience that not only our players but also our opponents don’t forget. Our players will never forget the feeling of the constant support especially during competition. They feel proud and are keenly aware that they are representing the 12th Man. When I looked at this job and talked to people who had been at A&M as opposing coaches, the first comment those coaches made to me was, ‘Oh my gosh, to be on the home team in that place is very important. You don’t want to be the visitor.’ I would say that the 12th Man is good for at least three to five points a game. They certainly boost the Aggies’ confidence and adrenaline, and the Aggie yells put that question mark in the opponent’s head, which is what fans should be doing. G. Rollie has the perfect environment for volleyball. It is so nice that A&M has an awesome atmosphere built in with the 12th Man. It definitely makes a difference. We’ve never lost an NCAA match here at home, and that is such a strong legacy and an awesome statement to be able to tell your team when you do get awarded the home court for NCAAs. It is a big confidence builder and a big boost, and it draws out more fans to see us keep the streak going. In my experience, Texas A&M’s 12th Man spirit is unmatched in the nation.

DR. ELSA MURANO

S TA F F

PRESIDENT, TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY

Dr. 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. Dr. Murano worked her way up the academic ranks-teaching and researchand into administration from an unconventional beginning. At the age of 2, her family departed from Havana, Cuba, when Fidel Castro came into power. After living in several Latin American countries, she and her family settled in Miami when she was 14 years old. At that time, she only knew Spanish, a language in which she is still fluent, but quickly mastered English and launched an educational career that carried her through the doctoral ranks. “Someday in the future, if I write a book, it will be called Only in America, because this great country has provided me so many opportunities, including the great honor of serving as President of Texas A&M University,” she is often quoted as saying. 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 coprincipal 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 Assistant 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

pansion to Reed Arena provides, practice and weight facilities, training rooms, team locker rooms, offices, study lounges as well as meeting rooms and other amenities. • MARKETING MACHINE. Since he took on leadership of the University of Oregon Athletic Department in 1984, Byrne has been known as one of the most innovative and influential leaders in terms of marketing his collegiate programs. At Oregon, he established a full-time marketing and promotions operation that formed the Oregon Sports Network for statewide, in-house production of Ducks games on radio and television. At Nebraska, Byrne’s HuskerVision became the model for all collegiate programs in its ability to promote and market all of the NU athletic programs, while also improving fan enjoyment and atmosphere at games. Just as significantly, HuskerVision and the marketing department also generated significant sponsorship revenues for the athletic department. Not surprisingly, Byrne is making an equally impressive impact on the A&M marketing efforts. In January 2006, Texas 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 as Texas A&M Sports Properties. The agreement is one of the top multimedia rights contracts in the country and includes significant additional income for the athletic department throughout the length of the agreement. In fact, revenue generated from the multimedia rights agreement financed the athletic department’s new video screen project including Kyle Field, Reed Arena and a portable screen for all sports.

S TA F F

In 1941, as he was preparing to be deployed to Gen. George S. Patton’s Third Division, Clancy Byrne hitchhiked from a military base in West Texas to College Station so that he could watch the Texas A&M-Texas game on Thanksgiving Day. The Aggies were outscored, but won an admirer in Clancy, who went on to serve with the 776th Tank Destroyer Battalion in the Allied Forces’ World War II efforts. During that game, Texas A&M and its fans left a positive impression on Byrne that he never forgot. A little more than 60 years later, Clancy Byrne’s son, Bill, also made a voyage to Aggieland. Like his father, the younger Byrne was instantly captivated by Texas A&M, its traditions and its fans. Unlike his father, however, the purpose of Bill Byrne’s trip to College Station wasn’t to take a peek at A&M, but rather to take the Aggies to the peak of college athletics. Byrne arrived at Texas A&M as the Director of Athletics in January of 2003, sporting outstanding credentials and a proven track record of producing champions. In fact, during a distinguished and dynamic career that has spanned more than three decades in collegiate athletics, Byrne has collected enough hardware (championship rings, plaques, honors, etc.) to open his own home-improvement store. With 16 national championships and 122 conference titles under his direction, his teams have enjoyed success across the board. Byrne came to College Station from Nebraska where his hard work put the Huskers’ financial books in the black and tripled the annual athletic budget. Byrne’s Nebraska teams also compiled an extremely impressive string of seven straight Top 25 finishes in the Directors’ Cup Division I-A standings, making him one of the most admired and respected athletic directors in the country. Since his arrival in Aggieland, A&M has earned four national championships and 23 Big 12 Conference titles with promises of more to come. Byrne’s dedication to the mission of Building Champions has led the Aggies to its highest ranking ever in Directors’ Cup Division I-A finishes. But what Texas A&M fans, former students, student-athletes, employees and school officials quickly discovered about Byrne, upon his arrival in Aggieland, is that this former offensive lineman would rather toil in the trenches than rest on his laurels. His success as an administrator is best defined by his unwavering work ethic, not the amount of gold he has placed in trophy cases throughout the years. Byrne’s passion and professional trademark is his relentless pursuit of excellence, and in an extremely short amount of time at Texas A&M, he infused the athletic department with a new vision for the future. Byrne is living up to his pioneering reputation on many different levels at Texas A&M. Here are a few of the examples:

• COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE. From a professional standpoint, everything Byrne does—every initiative he undertakes, every coach or administrator he hires and every dollar he raises—is done with one ultimate goal in mind: Building Champions. That two-word phrase has become the mission statement of Texas A&M’s athletic department under Byrne’s guidance, and it encompasses both his short-term and long-term objectives. He expects excellence from those who work with him, and he also demands it from himself. Throughout his career, Byrne has been recognized with the highest awards that an athletics administrator can receive. Among other things, he was recognized by the U.S. Sports Academy with the 2007 Carl Maddox Sports Management Award, he was the 2002 winner of the 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. Bill Byrne is a 1967 graduate of Idaho State, where he also earned an MBA in 1971. He began his collegiate career as the director of alumni relations at his alma mater and then served as the executive director of the New Mexico Lobo Club (1976-79). He was the assistant athletic director at San Diego State (1980-82) and was an associate athletic director at Oregon for 18 months before being named the Director of Athletics in May of 1984. Byrne’s wife of forty years is Dr. Marilyn Kent Byrne, who has expertise in leadership development, team building, and executive coaching. The Byrnes have two sons—Bill Jr. and Greg. Bill is a vice president of Visa USA in San Francisco. Greg is associate athletic director for external affairs at Mississippi State University. He and his wife Regina live in Starkville with their two sons, Nicholas and Davis.

• SMART HIRES. Byrne earned his reputation for outstanding hiring practices first at Oregon, where he became one of the youngest athletic directors in the nation in 1984. That reputation was further enhanced at Nebraska, where Byrne hired 15 head coaches during his tenure. Nine of those coaches reached NCAA postseason play during their first three years. That trend has continued at Texas A&M, where eight of his nine head-coaching hires have achieved postseason competition within their first two years. Byrne’s ninth hire, Mike Sherman, has not yet completed his first season. • BILL THE BUILDER. The Portland Oregonian first referred to Byrne in those terms as a tribute to the major changes made to the landscape of Oregon’s athletic facilities during Byrne’s tenure. In Lincoln, Byrne oversaw numerous facility upgrades valued at more than $100 million. And at Texas A&M, Byrne has made major strides in transforming the Aggies’ athletic facilities into some of the finest in the country. Byrne came to Aggieland in time to witness the Texas A&M football team move into the state-of-the-art, $27 million Bright Football Complex and Alice and Erle Nye Academic Center, which includes the football locker room, athletic training rooms, rehabilitation complex, meeting rooms, football coaches’ offices, players’ lounge and an academics center for all student-athletes under one roof. Not long after, he initiated design of a comprehensive master plan for Texas A&M’s overall athletic facilities, and in conjunction with the 12th Man Foundation—A&M’s athletic fundraising organization—he immediately helped secure several major gifts for the second phase of Texas A&M’s Championship Vision Capital Campaign. Under Byrne’s direction, the McFerrin Athletic Center was conceptualized and construction is almost complete. The center is a multi-sport indoor complex including a state-of-the-art hydraulic track capable of hosting National Indoor Track Championships, providing an indoor practice facility for soccer, football and all other sports. The facility boasts two full-size football fields, a Magic Carpet turf system and seating for 5,000 spectators. The Cox-McFerrin Center for Aggie Basketball is also nearing completion. This ex-

NCAA COMPLIANCE DEAR PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE: As a prospective student-athlete, you may have the 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.

S TA F F

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 Student-Athlete. 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 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, and then select the Eligibility and Recruiting link and then click on the Guide for the College-Bound Student-Athlete.

COMPLIANCE STAFF (L-R): Matt Callaway, Brad Barnes, Susan Tatum and David Batson.

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.

NCAA FYI FOR PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETES When do you become a prospective student-athlete? 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? 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.

Does the NCAA require you to have your amateur status certified by the NCAA Clearinghouse? For students initially enrolling on or after Aug. 1, 2007, yes, the NCAA will require you to have your amateur status certified. 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? 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?

*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).

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.

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

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

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 14 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.

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

LESSON LEARNED 2007 AGGIE VOLLEYBALL SEASON REVIEW It’s a goal of every team to earn a berth into the NCAA Championships, but just because a team surpasses the mythical requirement of a 20-win regular season doesn’t guarantee a spot in the prestigious 64-team postseason tournament. Texas A&M learned that the hard way in 2007.

he Aggies entered 2007 with 10 returning letterwinners, including four starters and a libero. All were adamant on getting A&M back to the tournament after having been a part of the team that saw A&M’s streak of 13-consecutive NCAA appearances come to an end in 2006. Snapping the long-standing tradition hadn’t set well with the Aggies, but they used it as motivation, dedicating themselves to their off-season workouts and determined to return to the NCAAs in ‘07. “There was really a strong commitment during the summer to stay and not only strengthen their bodies and their volleyball skills, but also to try to just strengthen the bond and the commitment from everybody,” A&M coach Laurie Corbelli said. “It was a pretty big sting to not go to the NCAAs in 2006 and to have a less than .500 record. That poor record in 2006 was just lingering in their heads, and they were going to do everything they could to prevent it from happening again.” Libero JEN MOORE, who would head up the drive with her leadership and inspiration, and middle blocker KELLY STANTON, a two-year starter, each felt a sense of urgency as they entered their final seasons. The two seniors were joined by returning starters KELSEY BRYANT, a junior right-side hitter, along with SARAH AMMERMAN and MARY BATIS, a pair of sophomore outside hitters who brought promise and power after impressive freshman campaigns. JILLIAN PHILLIPS, a dynamic and explosive middle blocker, was poised to become a starter, filling in for threeyear starter Christi Hahn, who had completed her eligibility in 2006. DARLA DONALDSON, a 6-2 middle, would add depth to the middle after transferring from Cal State Northridge, along with sophomore CARA QUAYLE. Other returners included sophomore JENNIFER BANSE, who excelled in the back row and also would be the No. 1 backup for Ammerman and Batis, and sophomore defensive specialist STEPHANIE CADAVID. The lack of depth at the setter and middle blocker positions was a major concern for Corbelli. Sophomore JOLA KELNER, who had seen limited court time as a freshman, was the only setter on the roster during the spring after two of the Aggies’ other setters were granted medical releases. Only days before the start of preseason drills, however, sophomore KRISTEN SCHEVIKHOVEN, a club teammate of Ammerman’s who had helped Front Range to an AAU national title, completed her transfer to A&M from Northern Colorado. “We had only one setter, and you always should be carrying at least two capable setters,” Corbelli said. “Schevi brought a ton of experience from her club, and

her style of setting matched what we teach in our system. It was a real sigh of relief and an immediate boost to the team’s confidence. She kept getting better and better.”

T

he Aggies came out with amazing fortitude to start the season, and Schevikhoven proved to be a godsend as A&M collected trophy after trophy by racing through tournament fields at home, at Montana State and at Texas-San Antonio without dropping a single game. Although the Aggies Senior middle blocker KELLY STANTON led the Aggies with a .354 struggled somewhat at Texas State hitting percentage, ranking sixth in the A&M all-time season records. midway through the pre-conference season, they did what it took to defeat would come back to haunt the Aggies. the Bobcats, 3-1, contributing to a school record-setting “We try to bring in the best teams we can, but many 10-0 start. times teams are shying away from playing Big 12 teams “I knew how young we were going to be again in early in the season knowing the strength of the league,” 2007,” Corbelli said, “so we needed to start out with Corbelli said. “The tournaments didn’t prove to be as opportunities to get the confidence going and get rolling competitive as I thought they would be, but we thought with our team rhythm. The rhythm of winning, that was maybe going into the Montana State tournament with a big goal for the pre-conference schedule.” Washington State of the Pac 10 and Utah State, which Although A&M was 10-0, the non-conference opwas becoming a stronger and stronger program over the ponents were not quite the caliber of team the Aggies last few years particularly, we would get some good, solid would see in the competitive Big 12.

SARAH AMMERMAN (12), JEN MOORE (2), MARY BATIS (25) and the rest of the Aggies "saw horns" after defeating Baylor in the final match of the season. .403 to .195, en route to a three-game sweep. “The previous losses had been to Nebraska, Texas and Kansas State, all highly ranked opponents,” Corbelli said. “We knew we were doing some really good things against them, and we knew where our strengths were. Then when we saw the match-up with Kansas, it boosted our confidence. We saw that what we do well would provide a good match-up where we could maybe capitalize on them against Kansas. Knowing that we had not performed well there in a long time, the words confidence and resilience were really important at that match.” A&M fell to a hot-streaking Missouri team in Columbia in the ensuing match and closed out the first half of Big 12 play with a 4-6 league mark after defeating Colorado, 3-1, in College Station.

fter a non-conference win against Sam Houston State, A&M opened the second half of conference play with sweeps against both Texas Tech and Kansas to extend its winning streak to four. The Aggies then headed to Oklahoma seeking to avenge their conference-opening loss. Ammerman had 25 kills, but it wasn’t enough as No. 21 Oklahoma held off the Aggies, 28-30, 30-21, 30-28, 30-28, at McCasland Field House. The Aggies were able to even the season series against Iowa State with a 3-1 home victory, but then they faced their most challenging stretch of the season. A&M took on No. 12 Kansas State in Manhattan, where the Aggies had only won one time. In a regionally televised match, A&M made a strong comeback after dropping the first two games, but the Aggies’ upset bid fell short in a 30-19, 30-27, 30-32, 28-30, 15-10 decision. “That match was probably another one of those that we didn’t get the win, and it was as devastating as the OU match in the conference opener,”

Corbelli said. “Those both were matches we had in our grasps. There was every opportunity for us to come home with that win. K-State was relieved when that was over. They knew that we were a formidable opponent.” A&M then traveled to Austin for a rematch against No. 3 Texas, which was ranked No. 1 in the nation in hitting percentage and was riding a 15-match winning streak. In addition, the Longhorns had won 30 consecutive games en route to a school-record nine straight three-game sweeps. The Aggies ended Texas’ record-setting streak for consecutive three-game sweeps but fell to the rival Longhorns, 3-1 in front of a sold-out crowd at Gregory Gym. The challenging schedule didn’t let up as that match was followed by a meeting with No. 2 Nebraska. The Aggies lost in three games to the defending national champions and dropped to 18-10 overall and 7-10 in the Big 12. Corbelli was still able to point out the positives despite suffering three straight losses. “With the exception of No. 2 Nebraska, we were taking games off of highly ranked teams in the nation that we had no choice but to play. All signs were pointing to what a strong program we had.”

REVIEW

he undefeated Aggies cracked the Top 25 for the first time in two years just before their recordsetting run came to a heartbreaking end with a disturbing home loss to Oklahoma. The Aggies came from behind to win the first two games against the Sooners but then began to struggle with serving and passing as Oklahoma rallied to win the next three games and the match in both teams’ Big 12 opener. “There was a maturity level that I noticed for the first time, us coming back after the break with four sophomores on the floor, and they come back with five seniors,” Corbelli said. “It was a higher level of confidence and certainty that Oklahoma had. That was a devastating loss. Going 15-13 in the fifth game, it still could have gone either way, and the team knew it, but not being able to finish, it just devastated the team. They couldn’t believe that they could not finish.” The Aggies were swept at Iowa State in the following match, which Corbelli described as a “no show.” A&M then won the first two games against Texas Tech, but then in an eerily too familiar situation, the Aggies dropped the next two games to the Red Raiders, who would tie for last in the Big 12 standings. Unlike the Oklahoma match, A&M won the fifth game, 15-10, to notch its first Big 12 victory. “After never even getting going at Iowa State, I thought it was significant that we were able to pull out the win against Tech, no matter who it was against,” Corbelli said. A&M suffered a 3-0 loss at No. 1 Nebraska but then pulled off an impressive sweep at Baylor. The Aggies then hosted No. 18 Kansas State, but despite a season-high 23 blocks, including a career-high 10 by Phillips which earned her Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week honors, the Wildcats prevailed, 3-1. Next up was a home-televised match against rival and seventh-ranked Texas. The Aggies put up a fight but fell, 3-0, in front of a home season-high crowd of 3,382. A&M then headed to Kansas, a place they had not won in four years. The Aggies had one of their most dominating conference performances, outhitting the Jayhawks,

W

ith their backs against the wall, the resilient Aggies rebounded by winning their final three matches of the season. The Aggies picked up 3-1 wins against both Missouri and Colorado to reach the 20-win milestone. They celebrated Senior Night and closed out the regular season with a sweep against Baylor to improve to 21-10 overall and 10-10 in the Big 12, tying Missouri for sixth place. “After that last match, I had no doubts that we would have a slot in the 64-team tournament. No doubts,” Corbelli said. “We did everything we possibly could do except maybe get a win at K-State and possibly that Oklahoma match way back in September, but the selection committee supposedly weighs heavier on the more recent matches.”

R

iding a three-match winning streak, the confident Aggies gathered to watch the NCAA Selection Show and see where they would be headed for the postseason. The field was announced, but Texas A&M never showed up on the screen. (continued on page 81)

AGGIE LETTERWINNERS LOST Three Aggies closed out their Texas A&M volleyball careers following the 2007 season. Seniors Jen Moore, the team’s libero, and Kelly Stanton, a starting middle blocker, completed their eligibility. In addition, junior-

to-be Cara Quayle, who had seen limited action in her two years, was battling painful irreparable degeneration in her knees and was granted a medical release.

REVIEW

JEN MOORE anchored the Aggies’ back row defense and solidified the team’s passing throughout her career, but even more impressive was her relentless determination, unwavering loyalty and leadership, which served as an inspiration to her teammates and coaches. Moore, who graduated with a degree in communications in May 2008, joined the Aggies as a freshman walk-on in 2004, and with her hard work and fortitude, she went on to earn an athletic scholarship. Moore was a starting defensive specialist as a sophomore, and as a junior, she received team honors for both best defensive player and most inspirational player after splitting time as defensive specialist and libero. As a senior, the team captain and libero was the only Aggie to play in all 107 games, all while battling through a back injury. She ranked second on the team with a career-best 3.21 digs per game, posting double figures in digs in 20 matches, including 12 of the final 14 matches of the season. Moore also led the team in digs in nine matches, including a career-high 19-dig performance against No. 18 Kansas State. An all-tournament selection at the 2007 UTSA Classic, Moore was honored for her performance in the classroom as well. As a senior, she was named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District second team and also made her third consecutive appearance on the Academic All-Big 12 Volleyball first team. KELLY STANTON was a steady and fearless force for the Aggies throughout her fouryear career. The middle blocker was thrown into the fire as a freshman, getting her first career start against No. 2 Nebraska because of an injury to senior starter and All-American Melissa Munsch. The rookie responded by hitting .455 against the Huskers and went on to earn A&M’s Most Improved Player award following her freshman campaign. As a sophomore, Stanton appeared in 22 matches and led the Aggies in blocks per game. She also tied an A&M record with 11 blocks in a five-game conference match against Colorado. Stanton led the team in blocks for the second consecutive year as a junior and was named to the Texas A&M Invitational all-tournament team. Stanton, who started every match for the Aggies as a senior, was named to the all-tournament team at both the Texas A&M Invitational and the UTSA Classic. She finished the season with a team-leading .354 hitting percentage, ranking eighth in the Big 12 and 44th in the nation. In addition, her hitting percentage rates sixth in the A&M all-time season records.

LESSON LEARNED: '07 REVIEW (CONTINUED) “We kept waiting,” Corbelli said. “Maybe they were expanding the bracket, because we hadn’t been called after 64. I didn’t understand how we could have only a 77 RPI if it includes the strength of schedule, and you compare our schedule to some programs that don’t even come close to the strength of schedule that we play, the quality of volleyball that Big 12 teams play day in and day out.” Iowa State, which finished a win ahead of A&M in the final standings, and Missouri, two teams the Aggies defeated in the second half of conference play, had heard their names called as the Big 12 sent a total of six teams to the Big Dance. The others were Big 12 co-champions Nebraska and Texas, Kansas State and Oklahoma. “I was stunned that 21 wins and being a Big 12 team didn’t get us into the tournament,“ Corbelli said. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room as the reality and shock quickly set in. “It was a hard lesson learned, but you have to finish,” Corbelli said. “We had it. We just couldn’t finish. The OU match, boy, if we could have taken that one. Not only

2 0 0 7 Vo l l e y b a l l Ye a r b o o k

would it probably have catapulted us into a better next couple of matches, but looking back, it’s a good possibility it could of put us in the NCAAs.”

A

&M ended the season ranked No. 12 in the nation with a .272 season hitting percentage, the second highest hitting percentage in school history. Batis and Schevikhoven were named team co-MVPs at the team banquet. Ammerman, who averaged a teamleading 4.43 kills, 0.36 aces and 5.07 points per game, was named Best Offensive Player, while Batis took home Best Defensive honors after leading the team with 3.57 digs per game. Banse received Most Improved Player accolades, and Moore was voted Most Inspirational Player. “I was extremely proud of this team, and I wouldn’t want to coach any other group,” Corbelli said. “I’m also willing to bet my life that they figure out the biases and the requirements necessary to be able to show your strength when you are in the type of situation we faced several times during the season.” The honors and the praise were appreciated, but the

hurt still lingers deep in the players’ competitive souls. “Life is not always fair, but you have to look for the silver lining,” Corbelli said. “I’m hoping that the silver lining is that there is no way we are going to leave a question mark again by being a bubble team. We are using that evening of watching that horrible, horrible selection show to motivate this team. We are not going to be in that position again. “We don’t want to ever go through that again, and we have to figure out how to make it work in our favor. We are going to have a little bit more of the drive, the determination in a game that they see is within our reach. Our maturity has really developed, and that is a huge part of college athletics, the understanding of the big picture and what it is going to take.” In 2008, Corbelli will return a veteran team with a point to prove. Based on their unmatched dedication and determination, that silver lining could quickly turn into a pot of gold for the Aggies.

USA Women’s Volleyball Olympic Team 2000 Olympic Games, Sydney, Australia 2004 Olympic Games, Athens, Greece 2008 Olympic Games, Beijing, China On September 16, 2000, former Texas A&M two-time AllAmerican Stacy Sykora made history and realized a childhood dream when she became the first Aggie to take the court as a member of the 2000 U.S. Women's Olympic Volleyball Team in

HISTORY

Sydney, Australia. Eight years later, her dream continues.

Sykora also competed at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece and then became A&M's first varsity athlete in any sport to compete in three Olympics, as she was one of 12 players to be named to the 2008 U.S. Olympic Women's Volleyball Team which competed in Beijing, China. "This is the biggest thrill of my whole life," Sykora said following the announcement of the 2000 Olympic team. "It is the culmination of an athlete's life to make it to the Olympic Games. We have all worked so hard to get to this point, and to actually realize we are going to represent the United States is awesome. "I remember as far back as the second grade dreaming of playing in the Olympics. Up until this day, I never knew for sure that I would make it, and for it to be finally official, it's just amazing. When the team was announced, I started bawling. So many things were running through my mind from my childhood days growing up in Burleson, Texas, through my college career and my training with the national team. And then I think about all the rough roads, the setbacks and challenges, and I have persevered. It is a great feeling. I feel like a kid who just received a huge gift." Sykora follows the footsteps of her college coaches, Texas A&M head coach Laurie Corbelli and A&M associate head coach John Corbelli. Laurie was a silver medalist on the U.S. Olympic Team at the 1984 Games in Los Angeles and also was a member of the 1980 Olympic Team that boycotted the Games in Moscow. John was an assistant volleyball coach on the '84 U.S. Olympic Women's Team. Sykora dons No. 5 for Team USA, the same jersey number Laurie wore at the '84 Games. "Still to this day I wear No. 5 in honor of Laurie Corbelli," Sykora said prior to the 2008 Games. "I'm where I am because of Laurie and John. The training they gave me, not only the physical but also the mental part of it. They instilled a lot in me during my years at Texas A&M." Sykora was Team USA's designated libero, a defensive specialist position that was making its Olympic debut at the 2000 Sydney Games. Sykora help 10th-ranked USA to a better-thanexpected fourth-place finish, narrowly missing out on a medal. "The Olympics were everything I thought they would be and more," Sykora said following her return from the Sydney Games. "When we walked out on the court for our first match, the music was playing and the crowd went wild with 'USAs.' Just walking out there and standing with my team, I was so proud and so ready to represent my country and finally fulfill my childhood dream." Having quickly established herself as one of the top liberos in the world while leading USA to a No. 1 world ranking,

Sykora made her second Olympic team in 2004. Although she was named the "Best Digger" at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, the top-ranked Americans finished a disappointing fifth. Sykora was devastated by USA's early exit at the Athens Games and contemplated retirement. "We came so close to medaling in 2000 so I tasted it but didn't medal," she said. "Being No. 1 in the world from 2000 to 2004 was so awesome, and we were thinking, 'oh you are going to medal.' I would daydream about it, celebrating with the medal, sleeping with the medal. I'd never take it off. I had all these fantasies about what I was going to do, and then it didn't

happen. It was such a disappointment that it hurt. I was angry for the entire year. I was sick. I couldn't talk about the Olympics. Anything about the Olympics, I couldn't handle." Sykora got away from the sport and began working as a paralegal in Las Vegas. She also eventually began working some volleyball camps, and the urge to play began to return. After three years away from competing, Sykora rejoined the national team two weeks before the World Cup in November 2007. "I took three years off," Sykora said. "I thought I had retired. I was ok with retiring, but then I was doing camps for an entire summer. When I would demonstrate, I realized I could still do this. Being around camps and talking about volleyball, I missed it a lot."

Sykora trained with the team and played in international matches, but she wasn't on the roster in June when Team USA left for the World Grand Prix, the prelude to the Olympics. Sykora thought her Olympic career was over, but an early-round injury to a USA player created a roster opening for the final round of the World Grand Prix. Sykora received an unexpected call to come to Japan. "That whole weekend before the call I couldn't stop crying, because it was over," Sykora said. "I was an emotional wreck. (To get called to Japan) was a very great surprise. "I say everything happens for a reason, and it did. If the injury hadn't happened, would I be on this team? That's the big question mark." Sykora took advantage of her final opportunity and was impressive. Then in an unprecedented move for USA Volleyball and a huge surprise to Sykora, USA head coach 'Jenny' Lang Ping decided to name two liberos to the Olympic roster, Sykora and first-time Olympian Nicole Davis. "I got my chance at Worlds and I took it and ran," Sykora said. "That is what helped me out. It showed that Nicole and I are both not only good liberos but passers and defenders, tops in the world. It showed that it would be a tough decision, and I'm glad (Lang Ping) is taking both of us." What would winning a medal at the 2008 Games mean to Sykora? "The world. That is all I have ever wanted my entire career was to medal. That is the only reason why I came back. I want to medal. I want those fantasies to come true. I'm coming back because I want this team to medal." Sykora jokingly added: "I also want to win a medal so I can be as cool as Laurie. I want to be cool, too, and have a medal to show, but it would really be cool it if I could one-up her silver medal." While at Texas A&M, the 5-10 Sykora was a three-year starting outside hitter for the nationally ranked Aggies from 1995-98. Always a crowd favorite because of her high flying, explosive attacks, her cat-like quickness and her phenomenal digs, the Burleson native capped her A&M career by being named to the 1998 All-America second-team by the American Volleyball Coaches Association for the second consecutive year. Sykora led the Big 12 Conference and was ninth in the country in digs per game (4.37) in her final season and led the conference in digs per game with 4.54 in conference games only, breaking the league record of 4.44, which she set in 1996. Sykora had a career year in her final season, hitting .277 and leading A&M in kills per game (4.74) and digs per game (4.37) while also directing the Aggies to their sixth consecutive NCAA tournament appearance and a 21-9 record. She finished her career ranked second in the A&M career records in both kills (1,586) and digs (1,471) and set 23 A&M single match, Big 12 season and Big 12 career marks. Sykora continues to be recognized for her illustrious collegiate career, and in 2005 she was named to the Big 12 Volleyball 10th Anniversary Team. In addition, she was a member of the 2005 class inducted into the Texas A&M Athletic Hall of Fame.

TEXAS A&M'S ELITE EIGHT TEAMS

HISTORY

The Texas A&M volleyball program has risen to unprecedented heights since Laurie Corbelli became head coach. Under her direction, the 1999 Aggies established a legacy, making history by advancing further in the NCAA tournament and ranking higher in the final coaches’ poll than any other team in the 25-year history of the program. Two years after reaching the NCAA Elite Eight for the first time and coming within one match of reaching the Final Four, the 2001 team duplicated the feat, confirming that the A&M volleyball program is among the nation’s elite. The Aggies’ famed run in the 1999 NCAA Championship tournament began when the selection committee awarded 13th-ranked A&M its 11th overall at-large berth and selected the Aggies to serve as a host for the sixth time in seven years. The Aggies opened the tournament with a sweep over Stephen F. Austin and then defeated No. 23 North Carolina in the second round to finish their home schedule with a 16-0 record. With the first and second-round victories, the Aggies advanced to the Sweet Sixteen for the third time in A&M coach Laurie Corbelli’s seven years at the helm of the Aggies. The Aggies were sent to Honolulu to face No. 3 Hawaii, who had their sights set on playing in the Final Four, which they were hosting. A&M shattered Hawaii’s dreams, stunning the hometown-favored Wahine, 15-9, 12-15, 15-9, 15-12, in front of a silenced crowd of 6,650 to earn a trip to the NCAA Elite Eight for the first time in school history. The Aggies never trailed in the opening game against Hawaii and held a narrow 10-9 advantage before scoring four points without a sideout to pull ahead, 14-9. Hawaii got a kill, but senior middle blocker Lauri Leahy put down a kill to regain serve for A&M. Sophomore setter Jenna Moscovic followed with a service ace for the game winner.

ous meetings, advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight for the first time but had little energy left the next night as defending national champion and sixth-ranked Long Beach State forged to a 15-4, 15-7, 15-13 win over the Aggies in the Mountain Regional finals. A&M, which had outblocked the nation’s top blocking team 18-8 the night before, could not stop the taller 49er squad, which included regional alltournament selections Tayyiba Haneef, a 6-6 middle blocker who recorded 14 kills and seven blocks, and 6-2 outside hitter Brandy Barrett, who posted a match-high THE 1999 AGGIE ELITE EIGHT TEAM 17 kills, as well as tournament MVP 6-2 middle blocker Cheryl Weaver, who added 12 kills, four The Aggies were ahead 11-7 in the second game blocks and a match-high 22 digs. when Hawaii rallied for seven points. A&M sophomore Senior outside hitter Celia Howes led the Aggies with outside hitter Michelle Cole got a kill on an overpass to 17 kills and added 18 digs. Strickland, who was named to get the Aggies within two, 14-12, but Jessica Sudduth put the regional all-tournament team, contributed 13 kills and a down a kill to give Hawaii the win and tie the match at team-high 19 digs. Woolsey also reached double figures in one game apiece. kills with 11 and added a team-high five blocks to give her Hawaii led 8-4 in the third game when A&M scored 10 unanswered points to pull ahead, 14-8. The Wahine regained serve on an A&M ball handling error and scored after an Aggie attack sailed long. But A&M senior right-side hitter Summer Strickland registered a kill off the Hawaii block to return serve to the Aggies and then followed with a game-winning kill after an errant Hawaii pass left the ball hanging at the net. Game four was a game of momentum swings. Hawaii scored two points at the start, but A&M answered with four consecutive points. The Wahine responded with five unanswered points to pull ahead 7-4. The momentum shifted back to A&M as the Aggies scored four points without a sideout to take an 8-7 lead. Hawaii scored four straight, and then A&M battled for five points to build a 13-11 advantage. The Wahine got within one point, 13-12, following an A&M ball handling error, but the Aggies eventually regained the serve and scored on a block by Moscovic and senior middle blocker Amber Woolsey, who set an A&M record with 13 blocks in the four-game match. Hawaii fought off three match points before Leahy put down a kill following a Hawaii overpass to seal the hard-fought victory. A&M, which had never defeated Hawaii in five previ-

1999 TEXAS A&M VOLLEYBALL TEAM Standing (L-R): Assistant Coach Nicole Lantagne, Associate Head Coach John Corbelli, Head Coach Laurie Corbelli, Claire Harvey, Robyn Burkhardt, Amber Woolsey, Rebecca Wynalda, Tara Pulaski, Brandi Mount, Michelle Cole and managers Robyn Johnson and Megan Holton. Seated: Jenna Moscovic, Erin Gibson, A.D. Achilefu, Lauri Leahy, Christy Clark, Beth Weynand, Summer Strickland, Celia Howes, Julia Rex and Heather McWhirter.

Moscovic and the other three Aggie seniors led A&M to a three-game victory over the Longhorns to advance to the Sweet Sixteen. The Aggies were sent to Palo Alto, Calif., where they would have to get past sixth-ranked Wisconsin in the regional semifinals before possibly setting up a rematch against host Stanford, who had handed the Aggies a 3-1 loss in College Station in the second week of the season. The 15th-ranked Aggies were undaunted by the favored Big 10-champion Badgers and used crisp passing and confident hitting to cruise to a 30-28, 30-24, 30-23 victory. The teams were tied at 12 in the first game when the Aggies scored five unanswered points to take a 17-12 lead. Senior Erin Lechler broke the 12-12 tie and gave A&M a lead it would never surrender. The Aggies held their biggest lead of the game at 20-14 following a Brandi Mount kill, but the Badgers battled back to within two at 21-19. Wisconsin committed one of its six service errors in the game and followed that with a kill error before a Moscovic kill gave the Aggies a 24-19 lead. The Badgers pulled within two again at 28-26, but a service error put A&M at game point. Wisconsin posted back-to-back kills to cut the lead to 29-28, but Cole tooled a kill off the block for the game winner. With the score tied at 11 in game two, Texas A&M took the lead for good when Moscovic and sophomore middle blocker Tara Pulaski teamed to stuff a Jill Odenthal attack. Up by four at 21-17, the Aggies benefited from three straight Badger attack errors and a Melissa Munsch service ace to take their biggest lead of the game at

25-17. Wisconsin couldn’t get any closer than three as A&M won the second game, with the last point coming on a Mount kill. A&M completed the sweep with a 30-23 win in game three. There were nine ties and five lead changes before the halfway mark, the last tie occurring at 14. Pulaski collected one of her 13 kills on the night to give the Aggies a lead they would not relinquish. The Aggies took their biggest lead at 27-19 on a Cole service ace. Wisconsin scored two straight points to pull within six, but kills by Munsch and Moscovic had A&M serving for the match. Following back-to-back Wisconsin kills, Pulaski thundered a kill inside the Badger sideline to complete A&M’s first sweep over a top-10 opponent since 1997 and propel the Aggies into the Elite Eight. In their regional final match, the Aggies suffered a 30-21, 30-19, 30-20 setback to eventual national champion Stanford. Lechler led the Aggies with 13 kills and was named to the all-region tournament team. Moscovic, who had three digs on the night to reach 1,000 for her career, also received all-region tournament honors and went on to join former teammate Woolsey as the only two Aggies to ever earn first-team All-American accolades. The Aggies finished the season with a 26-6 record and ranked 11th in the final USA Today / AVCA Top 25 Poll, marking the second highest final ranking in the history of the program. The 1999 and 2001 A&M teams left a legacy and set a standard for upcoming Aggie teams to strive for. With the level of intensity and determination increasing each year, future A&M teams will aim to build on the successes of those two teams and attempt to leave a legacy of their own.

HISTORY

an A&M record 154 block assists for the season. In addition to going further in the NCAA tournament than any other team in A&M history, the Aggies, who completed the Big 12 Conference season with a record 16 wins and an all-time high second-place showing, finished the overall season with a 28-6 record, marking the most wins and fewest losses since A&M went 33-4 in 1984. They also were No. 9 in the final Top 25 poll, marking the highest final ranking in history. The 1999 Aggie volleyball team left a legacy that its younger members vowed to carry on. Two of its starters, Cole and Moscovic, went on to become four-year starters and were instrumental in upholding that commitment as the pair led the Aggies to a return trip to the Elite Eight in 2001. For the second time in three years, the Aggies produced the biggest upset in the NCAA tournament to reach the Elite Eight. The team fell one victory short of achieving its dream of reaching the Final Four; however the season was still a tremendous success. After compiling a 23-5 regular-season record, including a 16-4 second-place showing in the Big 12, the Aggies were selected as an NCAA host for the seventh time in their string of nine consecutive NCAA appearances. The NCAA Selection Committee sent Texas-Arlington, Texas, and Northeastern University to Aggieland. The No. 11-seed Aggies completed an openinground sweep over the Southland Conference-champion Mavericks, setting up a rematch against Big 12 rival Texas, who dropped Northeastern in three games.
