he University of Akron's effort to upgrade its athletics facilities continued as it opened a new softball facility for the 2006 season, located adjacent to the Lee Jackson R. Track and Field complex and across from the Stile Athletics Field House. The Zips’ first game at the new field resulted in a 5-0 victory over Robert Morris on April 12, 2006. In addition to the playing field, the facility includes 40-foot dugouts with brick veneer trim, double bullpens beyond each dugout, double batting cages and hitting drill area by the home team dugout, and an eight-foot outfield chain link fence identical to the one that currently surrounds the Lee Jackson practice field. There is also elevated bleacher seating for 300 with ADA access, a press box and an inning-by-inning scoreboard in right field. The dimensions of the field are 195 feet down the foul lines, 205-foot gaps and 220 feet to center field. The new facility replaced Buchtel Field, which had been the home of the softball team since the program's inception. In 2005, Akron played a majority of its games at Firestone Stadium.

AKRON SOFTBALL

On August 24, 2011, the athletics departments at The University of Akron (UA) and Kent State University (KSU) announced participation in a new competition called “The PNC Wagon Wheel Challenge,” which further expands an intercollegiate athletics rivalry dating back more than a half-century 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. For the 2011-12 academic year, the PNC-sponsored rivalry will broaden 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. Through the 2011 game, Kent State leads the series 21–19–1 in Wagon Wheel games. Dating to 1923, Akron leads the all-time series on the gridiron, 30-22-2. “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, and terms of the agreement will not be made public.

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 plays 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. (If there is a tie in the first year, then the schools will share the trophy). 2011-12 Results Kent State won the innagural Wagon Wheel trophy by a margin of 9.06.0.

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.

Julie Jones

Head Coach Seventh Season Baldwin-Wallace, 1992

J

ulie Jones is in her seventh season leading the Akron softball program after recently signing a contract extension that will keep her at the helm through August 2015. During her tenure at UA, Jones has mentored five All-MAC honorees, three NCAA All-Mideast Region selections, 11 Academic All-MAC student-athletes and two Academic All-Americans. In the 2012 offseason, Jones assembled a highly sought after recruiting class that is projected to be one of the most successful in the history of the program. All five of the incoming freshmen that hail from the state of Ohio came to campus bearing all-state accolades from their prep careers. The newcomers will look to build on the success of a team that continues to rise in the Mid-American Conference. Akron finished the 2012 campaign ranked third in the nation in stolen bases per game, led by Iesha Mountain who posted the second-best average among all Division I freshmen. Alissa Birkhimer set the tone for Akron’s offense with a team-high 17 multi-hit games, 10 home runs and 47 RBI, which ranked fourth in the MAC and third all-time in program history for a single season. Senior Alex Helfrich earned a spot on the Capital One Academic All-American Third Team after a breakout senior season, becoming just the sixth Akron student-athlete to receive the distinction. Helfrich tallied 60 hits, 11 RBI, 27 stolen bases and 27 runs scored in her final campaign at UA. Jones and the Zips saw a record-setting season in 2011, as the team returned to the .500 mark with a 24-24 overall record and an 8-13 mark in conference play. Led by the emergence of senior Olivia Hegedus, the squad broke Akron’s all-time season home run record with 43 longballs, surpassing the previous mark of 40 set in 2002. Hegedus led the MAC with 15 homers, tied for the third-best season performance in program history. Birkhimer smashed 10 as a sophomore, putting her in a tie for seventh place on the all-time season list, as well. Akron had speed to match its power, stealing 108 bases in 135 attempts to lead the MAC by 20. Helfrich led the charge with 22 stolen bags alone. Under Jones’ guidance, senior Alex Feltes turned in one of the best seasons in school history, hitting .414 at the plate, the fourth-best season mark ever by a Zip. She also notched career highs with 60 hits, 35 runs scored, three triples, eight home runs, and 27 RBI. She paced the Zips with a .690 slugging percentage and a .488 on-base percentage in 145 at-bats. Against Toledo on May 6, she set a new single-game total bases record with 13 on two home runs, a double, and a triple in one monster game. Feltes was honored by a selection to the Louisville Slugger/NFCA All-Region Second Team, just the third Akron player to earn All-Region recognition, all under the watch of Coach Jones. Redshirt freshman Katie Gross also garnered postseason acclaim, making the MAC All-Freshman Team after a breakout season in which she played a vital role for Akron at the plate. She finished her first full season with a .283 average, 43 hits, five home runs, and 22 RBI. Gross is the third All-Freshman performer under Coach Jones and the fifth in program history. Off the field, Akron again placed student-athletes on the Capital One Academic All-District IV teams, as Feltes earned First Team honors, Helfrich made the Second Team, and senior Sarah Earley landed on the Third Team. All three Zips were making their second appearance on the Academic AllDistrict list, which is no surprise, as Coach Jones always stresses the importance of performance in the classroom. Feltes went on to make the Capital One Academic All-America Second Team, becoming just the fifth Zip in

program history to earn the distinction and the first since 1988. Jones has now coached four Academic All-Americans. In 2010, the Zips posted a 20-34 overall mark and a 7-15 record in MAC play. Feltes led the team in multiple categories, including batting average, hits, runs, and on base percentage. Off the field, Feltes and Helfrich were both named to the ESPN/CoSIDA Academic All-District Second Team, and the pair was joined by Heather Bauer on the Academic All-MAC squad. The 2009 season saw the best finish in Jones' career as head coach of the Zips, finishing 35-24 and 11-10 in the Mid-American Conference play. In addition, Jones led her squad to quite a feat in the league tournament. The seventh-seeded Zips pulled off three wins in one day to push themselves to the semi-final elimination game, the most tournament wins since 2002. Within just one victory of the conference championship, UA proved almost unstoppable with an inherent desire to win. The Zips, under Jones’ guidance, posted the league's lowest earned run average at 2.35, as well as the lowest individual ERA with then-sophomore Heather Bauer’s mark of 1.80. Jones coached NCAA triples leader Lisa McLean to the top of the MAC and top-10 in the nation. With 45 swipes to lead the league, McLean became UA’s all-time stolen base leader with 111. The 2009 season brought another coaching milestone for Jones as she posted her 300th career victory with a 5-2 win over Central Michigan on April 3rd. Continuing to prove that UA’s team is comprised of true student-athletes, Jones demonstrated her desire to build her players as individuals of character and discipline as the team ranked above all of Akron’s 18 intercollegiate teams in grade point average and continued its dedication to helping the community by participating in activities with various community groups in the greater Akron area. To add to the 2009 season’s accolades, Akron garnered three Mid-American Conference awards with McLean leading the way with first-team All-

Heading into the 2010 season, the Zips took a different approach by adopting 12-year-old Olivia Ward through the Friends of Jaclyn Founda-

In April of 2004, she was awarded a National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators scholarship to attend the NACWAA/HERS Institute for Administrative Advancement. The program provides training for women who actively desire increased administrative responsibilities in intercollegiate athletics. A member of the NCAA Regional Softball Committee, she also serves on the Women’s Athletic Alumni Association Board of Directors at B-W.

Along with athletic and academic achievements, Jones always stresses the importance of giving back to the community as the team continues to contribute to many community projects over the years, including Make a Difference Day with the University Park Alliance, conducting sports clinics at local elementary schools, and working with the Summit County Board of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities. “This community service plays into our overall philosophy of teaching our student-athletes to be well rounded, accountable and appreciative members of society,” said Jones. “We use softball as a microcosm of life teaching the important lessons of commitment, perseverance, accountability, teamwork and facing and overcoming failures. We hope that the experiences they share will help them learn valuable tools for success while at UA and well beyond. We also hope that they are building life-long relationships with their team and lay a foundation of a life-long commitment to our program. In our opinion, our staff is here to teach our kids to be successful in life. We want them to leave our program with passion to go out and change the world.” The team also participates in programs created by Akron’s Department of Athletics such as Zippy’s Readers and the Sports Clinic program. Zippy’s Readers is a program where student-athletes read to elementary school students for a morning or afternoon, along with Akron’s mascot, Zippy. In addition, the team routinely holds Sports Clinics, providing afternoons of softball drills, skill sessions, and fun games for local students. In the past the team has joined with the Akron Juvenile Detention Center, acting as role-models for children. They also have participated in the Memory Walk for Alzheimer’s at Blossom Music Center, raising money for their cause. In addition, the team has given much of their time to the County of Summit Developmental Disabilities Board (Summit DD) participating in bowling nights four times a year, helping serve food at their holiday party, donating items for their holiday party, as well as helping them with a car wash for their Handicapped Arts Program. After continued success and achievements off the field, the team received the prestigious ‘Neighborhood Nexus Award’ from the University Park Alliance. The mission of UPA is to revitalize the diverse neighborhood in a 50-block area immediately surrounding The University of Akron, through engaging the community and catalyzing real estate and business investment. Akron was honored at the sixth annual University Park Awards Luncheon (May 13, 2009) where the event honored 15 individuals and groups for their efforts in the designated area near the hospitals, university and downtown with the softball team receiving the distinguished student award. “As coaches we are hired to win games and normally fired if success is not found on the field,” said Jones. “It is our hope that building the complete player by pushing their bodies, stretching their minds and teaching them the importance of building relationships will lead to success on the field and off. This includes teaching them the importance of reaching out to the community and building experiences for others that will help everyone involved feel special. Participating in heartfelt community service projects is one of the hallmarks of our program. We hope that our kids realize how blessed and lucky they are as successful and healthy individuals. We hope that they learn to share their gifts with others, whether it be providing an exciting and memorable experience with our friends at Summit DD or helping with a project at a local church. We want our kids to help those who need help and do it with a grateful and thankful heart.”

tion, which is a program that teams children with collegiate programs in all sports throughout the country. Ward, from nearby Wadsworth, Ohio, was being treated at Akron Children’s Hospital for brain cancer. Because Ward has had three occurrences in her few short years, she had few friends her age who understand her struggles and slight limitations. As part of the team with her own uniform and locker, Ward taught the Zips many valuable life lessons. She passed away in December of 2010 but will forever be remembered in the hearts of the Akron softball team. The 2010 season marked the 25-year anniversary celebration of the 1984 and 1985 Zips National Championship runners-up teams. Jones, her staff and team were excited to share in the celebration of UA’s past of softball successes. “With such a rich history of success, it is extremely important to us to have our storied alumni active in our program,” said Jones. “Our annual alumni game is a highlight each year and we are so pleased that 40 to 50 or our past players join us each fall. We hope that our current players build relationships with our alumni and remain a part of our program for a lifetime.” Jones was named head softball coach at Akron in July 2006. She came to Akron after 10 seasons as head coach at Cleveland State (and three as an assistant, including a stellar 2006 campaign when she led the Vikings to a 38-15 mark and an appearance in the Horizon League tournament semifinals. During her tenure at CSU, Jones mentored 34 all-conference selections, a league player of the year, and three pitchers of the year. During the 2006 season four Cleveland State players were named to the Academic All-Horizon League team, with three players earning a spot on the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America softball squad. Only seven players in CSU athletics history have been named Academic All-Americans. In 1997, Jones was named the Midwestern Collegiate Conference Coach of the Year, leading the Vikings to the league championship and CSU’s first-ever NCAA Tournament berth. From 2003 to 2006 Jones led the team to three championship games. Jones ended her time at CSU with the most wins in school history of any sport accumulating 244 victories. The Vikings were also ranked in the NFCA academic top 20 all 13 years she was at CSU, including a third-place finish in 2005 when the team posted a 3.533 GPA. She had a 244-260-2 overall mark with CSU, including an 88-68 record the last three seasons. Four of Jones’ former players at Cleveland State have been inducted into the CSU Varsity Hall of Fame. As head coach at CSU, Jones oversaw every facet of the program, including budgetary matters, scheduling, practice and conditioning, recruiting and camps. She also spearheaded fund raising activities, which totaled more than $35,000 each season. From 1993-96, Jones served as an assistant coach at CSU, aiding in all aspects of the program’s administration. From 1994-97 she was also the compliance coordinator for the Vikings, serving as the campus liaison for CSU’s initial NCAA Certification Report. An all-region and all-conference selection as a catcher at Baldwin-Wallace College in Ohio, she was a four-year starter and led the Yellow Jackets to the 1992 NCAA Tournament. A standout in the classroom, she was a two-time National Softball Coaches Association All-America Scholar-Athlete and a three-time academic all-conference selection. In 1992 she was named to the academic all-region team and received an academic AllAmerican honorable mention. She was inducted into the B-W Athletic Hall of Fame in the fall of 2003. A 1992 graduate of B-W with a degree in Speech, Communication and Theatre, Jones earned a master’s degree in Applied Communication Theory and Methodology from Cleveland State in 2001. She is a graduate of Akron Garfield High School, where her number nine was retired.

J

ulie Pratt is in her seventh season on the coaching staff at her alma mater. She was named an assistant coach at Akron in July 2006 and promoted to associate head coach in July 2007. Pratt is a steadfast part of the Zips’ success on and off the field. Prior to coming to Akron, Pratt spent one season as an assistant coach with head coach Julie Jones at Cleveland State. During that time she worked primarily with the hitters and outfielders and aided in the Vikings’ recruiting efforts. “Julie knows how to analyze the game as well as anyone,” Jones said. “She has great insight into the intricacies of our sport and has an outstanding rapport with the players which helps her share her knowledge with the team. I cannot put a value on the things she brings to our program.” Pratt previously spent seven seasons at IUPUI, the last six as head coach. During her tenure in Indianapolis, she amassed a 101-191 (.346) career record and was one of two coaches in school history to accumulate at least 100 wins. In 2005, she coached IUPUI to a 20-25 overall record and 10-10 mark in league play, earning Coach of the Year honors. She mentored 13 all-conference players and 14 Academic All-Mid-Con student-athletes as head coach. Three players were named Mid-Con Newcomer of the Year and three earned all-region status under her tutelage. Pratt also served as an assistant coach at Wright State from 1996-98. While there, she helped the Raiders to a then school-record 29 wins in 1997 in addition to heading up the Student-Athlete Resource Center. A 1996 graduate of Akron with a degree in sociology and corrections, Pratt was a four-year letterwinner for the Zips at catcher and designated player. A 1994 All-Mid-American Conference selection, she ranks seventh on the career home runs list (21) and ninth on the RBI tally with 96. She still shares the single-season record for doubles with 17, is fourth in single season RBI (26) and eighth in single season home runs (9). In 2013, Pratt was inducted into the Varsity “A” Hall of Fame for her accomplishments during her time as a student-athlete. Pratt and her husband Chris have three children, Hunter, Savannah, and Parker.
