WHAT IS A ZIP? One of the unique nicknames in all of intercollegiate athletics belongs to The University of Akron. Originally Zippers, athletic director Kenneth “Red” Cochrane officially shortened the nickname to the Zips in 1950. Twenty-five years earlier a campus-wide contest had been conducted to choose a nickname for The University’s athletics teams. Suggestions submitted by students, faculty, and alumni included Golden Blue Devils, Tip Toppers, Rubbernecks, Hillbillies, Kangaroos and Cheveliers. The winner, freshman Margaret Hamlin, received a prize of $10 for Zippers, a $6 pair of rubber overshoes and a brand name of the BF Goodrich Company. The evolution of Zippy, UA’s mascot, began 40 years ago when the student council decided the University needed a mascot. “Zippy” the kangaroo was officially declared the school’s mascot on May 1, 1953.

AKRON ZIPS James A. Rhodes Arena provides the Zips with a home-court advantage that rivals any facility in the Mid-American Conference. Also known as Rhodes Arena and the JAR, the facility is home to the men’s and women’s basketball teams, as well as the women’s volleyball squad. During the summer of 2011, the JAR saw the addition of team lounges for the men’s and women’s basketball programs, as well as a 1,850-foot weight room. The weight room will service both basketball programs, as well as the volleyball and women’s tennis squads. Prior to the 2002-03 season, Rhodes Arena received a $1.1 million renovation. The project included the addition of a new playing surface and several fan-based capital improvements. The first phase of the facelift took place during the summer of 2002 when a new hardwood floor was installed. The cost of the project, which was funded by private donations, was $202,500 and was completed in late August. The new floor replaced a surface that was installed when the facility was built in 1983. The Cincinnati Floor Company installed the new floor, which was manufactured by Robbins Sports Surfaces. The company also installed the floors at Indiana University’s Assembly Hall and Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena, home of the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers. The new surface also features the school’s new logo and word marks, which were unveiled in July 2002.

Phase two of the project was one which Zips fans have benefited from most, providing a new state-of-the-art video display and scoreboard system – installed in October 2002. The centerpiece of the project, called ZIPSvision, features four Opto Tech 7.5’ x 10’ LED displays which showcase replays of the action on the floor plus other programming before, during and after the game. Opto Tech, whose sports clients include Major League Baseball’s Arizona Diamondbacks, Ohio State University, University of Nebraska, and the Georgia Dome, is one of the industry leaders in large scale video displays.   Partial funding for ZIPSvision comes from The University of Akron’s 10-year partnership with Pepsi. In exchange for signage, media and pouring rights at UA athletics venues, Pepsi contributed $380,000 to the Rhodes Arena Renovation Project. The balance of the project was generated through the sale of signage, both on ZIPSvision and on courtside media tables. In fall 2008, new courtside tables with LED display capabilities, were purchased for the venue. The facility became the new home of The University of Akron’s athletics teams on Dec. 3, 1983. Opened prior to the 1983-84 season, the facility gave the Zips basketball and volleyball teams a modern indoor athletics complex. Rhodes Arena, which seats 5,500, was the first phase of a three-part $20.5 million project, which included the $6.5 million Oliver J. Ocasek Natatorium, a $2.5 million renovation of Memorial Hall (demolished in 2010) and completion of the 6,000-square-foot Clifford Skeen Var-

sity Weight Room, which was located inside Memorial Hall.

The 2,600-square-foot Tommy Evans Memorial Lounge, used for preand post-game receptions and department functions, is housed on the south end of the second floor.

Rhodes Arena is truly a unique facility, offering valuable resources to today’s student-athletes, while also serving as a fan-friendly venue.

All 5,500 seats in the arena are retractable to facilitate the use of the 18,000-square-foot floor for physical education activities, concerts, conventions and other special events.

Improved locker rooms were added to the Rhodes Arena complex in the fall of 1992. The new team facilities were funded through private contributions to the Zips Athletics Club.

2013 PREVIEW

The volleyball locker room underwent a $10,000 renovation during the summer of 2003. New carpeting was installed, the locker room was re-painted, oak lockers were installed, the stereo system was upgraded and a players lounge area added.

Armchair seating is available on the lower level (1,323) and on the west-side upper level (773), while the remaining seats are bleacher style.

The 125,538-square-foot building also includes a $675,000 classroom wing and a $1.3 million office wing that houses the bulk of The University’s athletics department staff.

The JAR is also home to summer camps for the volleyball program, which offers two team camps and a two-day individual camp, along with several individual day clinics designed to teach specific aspects of the game to all skill levels.

AKRON VOLLEYBALL

The arena is comprised of two floors. In addition to the court, the first level features locker rooms, a sports medicine and training facility, a ticket office, a fan team shop and meeting rooms. The ground level is also home to the school’s hall of fame, which features photos and information on each inductee. The second floor offers a jogging track and four special multi-purpose labs – suitable for archery, golf, badminton and dancing.

Rhodes Arena plays host to the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Wine and Gold intrasquad scrimmage every October, along with the LeBron James Skills Academy (showcase for the nation’s best high school players) and the LeBron James King’s Academy (youth camp) each summer. The King James Shooting Stars Classic (AAU tournament) is also headquartered on the UA campus each spring.

THE PNC WAGON WHEEL CHALLENGE On Aug. 24, 2011, the athletics departments at The University of Akron and Kent State University today announced participation in a new competition called “The PNC Wagon Wheel Challenge,” which further expands an intercollegiate athletics rivalry dating back more than a halfcentury between the two schools. The PNC Wagon Wheel Challenge is based on a time-honored competition for an historic wooden wagon wheel trophy awarded originally in 1945 to the winner of the annual Akron-Kent State football game. Starting with the 2011-12 academic year, the PNC-sponsored rivalry broadened the competition to include 15 NCAA varsity sports, with victories in each sport adding one point to the challenge standings. Fans can learn more about the rivalry and follow the results and standings via www.PNCWagonWheelChallenge.com. “PNC’s new athletic challenge will spark more excitement in a broad range of sports between these rival schools,” said Kevin O. Thompson, PNC regional president for Akron, Canton and Wooster. “By showcasing the talents of student-athletes, we will further engage alumni and the community to support our schools.” In keeping with tradition, the annual winner of the football contest will gain possession of the historic wooden Wagon Wheel trophy, while the school that accumulates the most total points in all varsity matchups for that academic year will receive an overall series trophy. “The Akron-Kent State rivalry is a regional event and this partnership will help expand it to more sports and likewise more fans,” Akron director of athletics Tom Wistrcill said. “We’re excited to have PNC serve as sponsor of what is one of the more unique rivalries in college athletics. As members of the Mid-American Conference, the results of our competitions against one another are already very important, but the Wagon Wheel Challenge will increase the level of bragging rights around the community.” According to legend, the “Wagon Wheel” trophy traces its beginnings to the spring of 1870 when Akron industrialist John R. Buchtel set out for the town of Kent in search of a site to establish a college. In the muddy Ohio fields, however, his wagon became bogged down in the area where Kent State University is currently located. When horses pulled the wagon, a wheel came loose and became buried until it was discovered in 1902 during the construction of a pipeline along the Western Reserve Trail. The wheel eventually fell into the possession of Dr. Raymond Manchester, who as the Kent State Dean of Men in 1945, suggested the local historic artifact be offered as the trophy to the winner of the annual AkronKent State football game. “College athletics is built on strong rivalries, and we’re fortunate to have one of the closest in the country with Akron,” Kent State director of athletics Joel Nielsen said. “We’re very appreciative of PNC’s support of the Wagon Wheel Challenge – this model has worked very well with other schools and it can only help grow this rivalry and make it even stronger.” IMG College, the sponsorship and multi-media rights holder for both Akron and Kent State athletics negotiated the PNC Wagon Wheel Challenge.

PNC Wagon Wheel Challenge - Rules and Qualifying Sports • Each of the fifteen (15) sports will be worth one (1) point. For a school to be the winner of The PNC Wagon Wheel Challenge, it must accumulate at least eight (8) points. • The point is awarded to the team that wins the season series in the head-to-head competition. • If the teams play head-to-head once in a given season (e.g. football), then the school that wins will receive the point. • All regular season games count toward the season series tally (including if non-conference games are played) with the school that wins more games (e.g., winning two of three in softball) receiving the point. If teams split the regular season matchups (e.g., in basketball), then each team receives a one-half (½) point for that sport. • For men’s and women’s cross country, golf and indoor/outdoor track and field, one point is awarded to whichever school finishes higher in the MAC Championship for each of those sports. (For these sports, no other competitions – in-season or post-season – will count toward the series). • MAC and/or NCAA Tournament games can count toward determining the season series winner (e.g., the schools split the two regular season meetings in basketball and then meet in the MAC Tournament, whichever school wins that game is awarded the point). • In the event of a 15-sports season tie, the school that won the trophy the previous year will retain possession. 2012-13 Results Kent State won the Wagon Wheel trophy for a second-consecutive season, posting an 8.0-7.0 victory. KSU earned points in baseball (1.0), football (1.0), men’s golf (1.0), women’s golf (1.0), women’s soccer (1.0), softball (1.0), women’s indoor track & field (1.0) and women’s outdoor track & field (1.0).

Ron Arenz

Head Coach Sixth Season Long Beach State, 1995 » 60-90 at Akron (.400) » 96-119 Overall (.447, seven seasons) The University of Akron volleyball program has soared to new heights under head coach Ron Arenz, and the future continues to look bright as he enters his sixth year at the helm. The Zips exhibited the greatest single-season turnaround in the Mid-American Conference and of any Division I team in the country last year, posting a 12-win improvement from 2011 to 2012 (4-25 to 16-13) and marking their best overall record since 2003. Akron also advanced to the MAC Tournament quarterfinals for the first time in nine seasons as the No. 5 seed after it was picked to finish last in the league’s preseason poll. Prior to its conference tournament berth, Arenz guided UA to the program’s 700-win milestone with a thrilling five-set victory over Miami (Ohio) at James A. Rhodes Arena on Sept. 29, 2012. Arenz has coached an All-MAC performer in each of his first five seasons at UA, the trend beginning with his arrival and marking the first conference honors for Akron since 2004. Most recently, this honor was awarded to Tina Dimitrijevs in 2012, who was the first Zip to be named to the All-MAC first team since the 2003 season. In addition, Arenz has placed two student-athletes on the Academic All-MAC team, coached five to academic honorable mention status and earned three AVCA (American Volleyball Coaches Association) academic awards during his tenure. Going 11-17 overall and 5-11 in the MAC during his first season (2008), Arenz immediately brought change to the Zips. The five league wins during his first year were the most for the program since 2004. He followed that success by grabbing a 14-18 overall record in 2009 while leading the squad to another season with five conference victories. Brionna Patterson was named to the All-MAC Second Team after leading the Zips with 492 kills for a 3.97 kills per set average. The best was yet to come, as Akron posted a 15-17 record in 2010, as well as a 7-9 mark in the MAC, the most overall and league wins for UA since 2003. The Zips also recorded a win over perennial MAC champion Ohio in Athens for their first defeat of the Bobcats since 2003. Dimitrijevs earned All-MAC Second Team honors as a junior after finishing the season with an impressive .367 hitting percentage in 83 sets played. She also made the All-MAC Freshman team in 2008. “The leadership of the University of Akron has created a comprehensive environment for today’s student-athlete,” said

Arenz. “The resources that the University provides our studentathletes increases opportunities for academic and athletic success. Compliment those resources with our membership in the very competitive Mid-American Conference, and you have a very attractive place for competitive student-athletes to develop into well-balanced young men and women. I believe success can be achieved in both academic and athletic realms without sacrificing one for the other, and the University of Akron provides that avenue.” Arenz was introduced as the ninth head coach in the history of the Akron volleyball program on Feb. 5, 2008. Arenz, who served as an assistant coach at Western Michigan from 2002-04, joined the Zips family after guiding the University of West Alabama to a banner season in 2007.
