He helped guide Julie Gauguery and Victoria Roberts to a doubles’ victory in the first round of the ITA Regional Tournament, marking the first time in three year an A-State doubles’ squad had won an opening round match in the tournament.

Lange spent the last four seasons as the head tennis coach at Birmingham Southern College, where the Panthers had an overall record of 11-3 this past season and played in the Southern Athletic Association Conference championship match.

Freshman Shelby King also flourished under Lange’s leadership as she compiled an 8-4 record during the fall tournament season. She captured a tournament title at the Terrier Invite and advanced to the Round of 16 in the consolation bracket of the ITA Regional. Lange came to A-State with an impressive coaching background in the SEC and Big 12. The Kentucky native began his head-coaching career at Mississippi State in 1992 where he compiled 25 wins in four seasons and achieved an ITA ranking of No. 41 during his second year on the job. Before coaching the Bulldogs, Lange was the assistant men’s tennis coach at Texas A&M, where he was responsible for the top-ranked recruiting class in the country.

A-STATE TENNIS

2016-17 Preview Kel Lange ushers in a new era of Arkansas State women’s tennis after being selected to take charge of the team in the summer of 2015. Lange, who has experience as a head coach in the SEC, most recently coached at Birmingham Southern where he enjoyed four years of success before joining a Sun Belt Conference school for the first time in his career. Lange is faced with a tough task in having to replace a four-year all-conference player in Tamara Slijepecevic, who etched her name across the A-State record books with four phenomenal years of tennis. Not only did she become the seventh player in school history with 50 or more career wins, she also ranks third on the Red Wolves’ all-time career winning percentage list. In addition to Slijepecvic, A-State must also replace Jess Heeps-Eriksen who served as one of the core doubles’ players on the roster in the last four years and also made a strong impression as a singles’ competitor in her senior season. Perhaps the most logical choice to take over the No. 1 spot for Lange is junior Julie Gauguery who won six matches as the No. 2 position player last season. Gauguery has shown promise of taking the next step, but could receive a heavy dose of competition for the top spot from freshman Shelby King who proved she will be name to be remembered throughout the Red Wolves’ fall schedule. King had the best showing of any A-State player in recent memory at the ITA Regional Tournament in Stillwater, Okla., by winning a pair of matches and advancing deep in the consolation bracket. She also too home top honors in two other tournaments. Fellow freshman Victoria Roberts also comes with a strong pedigree, earning a No. 74 ranking in the Southeast Region and nabbing a 3-star rating by Tennisrecruiting.net. Of the returning players, redshirt junior Daria Iurchenko is looking to bounce back after a slow start to her fall season. The Russian native is coming a season-ending injury in 2015 and is looking to work her way back into form this season. Senior Sofia Krsmanovic also figures to figure into the regular rotation and has shown flashes that she can be among the Sun Belt’s best players. Junior Victoria Pisani has also been very consistent throughout her career and can be counted on to give a stellar effort each and every time that she takes the court. Senior Chiara Stefanov adds stability to the lineup, while sophomore Sabina Jeresic is a wild card that can play virtually any position in the lineup and find success. Before the dual match season kicks off in November, the Red Wolves will take part in two tuneup tournaments. The squad will travel to Fort Myers, Fla., to participate in the FGCU invitational Jan. 14-18 and will follow with a trip to Dallas, Texas to take part in the SMU Invite Jan. 23-24.The dual match season officially kicks Deb. 2 with a home match against Central Arkansas, followed by five straight road matches against Stephen F. Austin, Lamar, Saint Louis and Southern Illinois. The squad returns home Feb. 27 for a three-match home stand staring with Murray State and follow with a March 5 matchup against Lipscomb and Eastern Illinois on March 12. Sun Belt Conference play starts with a neutral clash with Appalachian State in Nashville, followed by two non-conference slates at home against Missouri State and Western Kentucky on March 18-19. The Red Wolves then travel to Louisiana to take on Texas State and UT Arlington in a neutral site clash, followed by a trip to New Orleans to take on Southeastern Louisiana and New Orleans. Arkansas State wraps up league play with a trip to Texas to play Louisiana-Monroe and Louisiana-Lafayette. The Sun Belt Conference tournament is scheduled for April 21-24 in New Orleans. 12

A-STATE TENNIS Academics

The Arkansas State University Athletics Department announced the fourth largest single donation in its history, a $400,000 gift from Charles Luter that was used to enhance the athletics’ academic facility, at a press conference held at the newly named Charles Luter Family Academic Success Center in September of 2008. The Academic Success Center serves as a foundation for structure, discipline and organization for the education of all A-State student-athletes. The facility, coupled with innovative programs and equipment, currently houses the academic support staff, tutors, computer labs, a resource room, study areas, tutorial rooms, small group study centers, a large conference room, the compliance office and spring sports coaching offices. Among the most recent and noticeable modifications to the Charles Luter Family Academic Success Center is a new foyer housed in a brick and rock exterior that, along with new landscaping, gives the entrance to the builing a modern look and creates a stronger image. The actual foyer has a large Red Wolves logo embedded in a terrazzo flooring that greets visitors as they enter the building. A receptionist office now also connects to the lobby area, which holds all-new furniture and a plaque recognizing Charles and his wife, Kay. A restructuring of the academic resource center, now known as Dawson’s Den, has occurred, including a wallwrap celebrating academic success that is clearly visible for student-athletes working in the computer lab. Additionally, tutorial rooms and computerwork stations have been upgraded in this area, which also displays pictures of the most recent A-State graduates. The names of the latest members of the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll are also showcased in Dawson’s Den. The area is named after Scott and Kay Dawson, longtime supporters of Red Wolves’ athletics.

Red Wolves Leadership Academy

It is well-known that collegiate athletics departments across the country place a common emphasis on graduation, but Arkansas State has taken it a step further by already fulfilling a bold promise of 100 percent job placement for all its graduating student-athletes. A-State has met its job-placement goal through its newly-developed Red Wolves Leadership Academy, which continues to strengthen with a new study abroad component added to foster global awareness which is often cited by employers as a positive attribute they seek This past summer, Arkansas State student-athletes took part in the first study abroad program offered by any university and their athletics department in the nation. The program goes handin-hand with the Red Wolves Leadership Academy, designed with the sole purpose to obtain 100 percent job placement for ALL student-athletes upon graduation. The Red Wolves took a ground-breaking step by sending the group of student-athletes to London on a faculty-led academic program. For A-State Director of Athletics Terry Mohajir, this is just one of the many ways it all comes back to providing the Red Wolves with the most comprehensive experiences possible to be successful in life. According to a recent CNN article (2014), titled “Studying abroad could give you an edge in the job Current football student-athlete Charlesmarket,” only one percent of U.S. college students manage to study abroad. The author can now count ton Girley and Director of Athletics Terry these and future Red Wolves among that one percent. Mohajir embrace during the 2015 Arkansas Research conducted by UC Merced backs up what Mohajir, the A-State Athletics Department, and State Spring Commencement. A-State Chancellor Dr. Tim Hudson, who has led hundreds of such programs, believes – adding the study abroad component to the Red Wolves Leadership Academy puts its student-athletes among the most desirable employees in the nation coming out of college and helps create global citizens. The UC Merced research also showed that 97 percent of study abroad students found employment within 12 months of graduation, while only 49 percent of college graduates found employment in the same period. Additionally, statistics revealed study abroad students had a 25 percent higher starting salary than those college graduates who did not study abroad. Graduate school also falls under the all-encompassing umbrella provided by the Red Wolves Leadership Academy and is included in its goal of 100 percent job placement since it has a significant impact on future employment. According to IES Abroad research (“Recent Graduates Survey: The Impact of Studying Abroad on Recent College Graduates’ Careers”, 2012), 90 percent of alumni who were accepted into one of their top two choices for graduate or professional school studied abroad. Like Mohajir and Dr. Hudson, Dr. DeeDee Hudson, Director of the Office of Study Abroad at A-State, and Dr. Osa Amienyi, Chair of the Department of Media at Arkansas State University, were a part of the study abroad vision and instrumental in bringing it to fruition.

A-STATE TENNIS Sun Belt Conference

The Sun Belt Conference mantra “Together We Rise” exemplifies what has quickly become America’s most up-and-coming collegiate athletics conference. Founded in 1976, the Sun Belt has adapted and evolved in its nearly 40 year existence. The league was originally formed as a home for some of the nation’s premier mid-major basketball teams and it wasn’t until a number of changes and the demand for a higher national profile that the league began sponsoring football in 2001. Because of this decision to move the league in to the group of football playing conferences, the Sun Belt Conference has a permanent seat on the NCAA’s 18-member Board of Directors. As a result, the conference has a crucial voice on some of the most pressing issues in college athletics.

And beginning with the2016 season, the Sun Belt is also part of a rotation of conferences that will send a team to the Bahamas Bowl and the Miami Beach Bowl. The influx of bowl game opportunities comes at a time when the Sun Belt Conference is breaking win records year after year and the league is continually exceeding expectations.

The Sun Belt’s 21 non-conference football wins in the 2013 season was a new record for the league - eclipsing the mark of 19 set the year prior. Additionally of note for the league’s non-conference win total was that the Sun Belt fared well against its peer opponents in the non-AQ BCS ranks.

UL Lafayette captured the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament in what was one of the most thrilling finishes to the Sun Belt championship game in recent memory. An influx of young coaches mixed with proven veterans makes both Sun Belt men’s and women’s basketball an exciting brand with vast potential. The Sun Belt Conference Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships were played in the hometown of the Sun Belt at Lakefront Arena this past March in what was the first of a three year deal that will have Sun Belt hoops in the “Big Easy” each March. Baseball and softball continue to be among the league’s standard-bearers for success as each continues to send teams on deep postseason runs and teams are easy to find in the national polls. In baseball, UL Lafayette held a unanimous No. 1 national ranking during the 2014 season and hosted a NCAA Tournament Regional and Super Regional. Not to be outdone, the UL Lafayette softball team also hosted the NCAA Tournament rounds and qualified for the 2014 edition of the Women’s College World Series. In recent years as many as four Sun Belt teams have advanced to the baseball postseason in a single year, while as many as three Sun Belt softball teams have accomplished that feat. While the accomplishments of the Sun Belt’s student-athletes and coaches deserve great praise, so to do the league’s administrators who have helped set the tone for the future of the conference. 36

“We have never been as strong as we are now academically and financially and I believe we are getting stronger all the time athletically,” former Sun Belt Conference President and Troy University Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr. said recently. “I truly believe that the best is yet to come.” The Sun Belt Conference’s membership consists of 11 football members for 2014 – Appalachian State, Arkansas State, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, Idaho, UL Lafayette, UL Monroe, New Mexico State, South Alabama, Texas State and Troy. UALR and UT Arlington compete in all-sports as non-football members while Idaho and New Mexico State are football only members. Prominent Sun Belt alumni include Lyndon B. Johnson, former President of the United States (Texas State), former All-Star baseball player Luis Gonzalez (South Alabama), former member of the United States Senate and House of Representatives John Breaux (UL Lafayette), country music superstar Tim McGraw (UL Monroe), CEO of Duck Commander and Buck Commander Willie Robertson (UL Monroe) and DeMarcus Ware, an All-Pro NFL linebacker (Troy).

A-STATE TENNIS Terry Mohajir, Director of Athletics

Terry Mohajir is in his third year as Director of Athletics at Arkansas State University. He became the 11th Director of Athletics in A-State history on September 19, 2012, and since that time the Red Wolves have enjoyed unprecedented overall success academically, competitively and financially. Since being named director of athletics, Mohajir (pronounced MO-HODGE-ER) has adopted an “ALWAYS RISING” slogan as an expansion on the popular “RED WOLVES RISING” campaign. With that theme in mind, the Arkansas State alumnus has instituted sweeping changes, created new policies, produced record-breaking fundraising totals, overseen significant facility upgrades and implemented creative philosophies that have put the Red Wolves on course to strengthen their national brand. During his brief watch, the Red Wolves have accomplished numerous firsts in both academics and athletics accomplishments. Since his arrival to A-State, the Red Wolves have claimed two Sun Belt Conference football championships (2012-13), won the league’s West Division in men’s basketball (2012-13) and picked up conference titles in women’s indoor track and field (2013), women’s cross country (2014), women’s basketball (2013-14) and men’s indoor track and field (2015). Arkansas State had its first female student-athlete ever win an individual national championship and its women’s athletics program claimed its highest finish all-time in the Capital One Cup standings, earning a prestigious top-50 award for ranking No. 40

44 among all NCAA Division I programs during 2013-14. The No. 44 ranking was the highest ever by a Sun Belt Conference women’s program. The 2013-14 athletics year also saw A-State enjoy its highest ever finish in the Learfield Sports Director’s Cup standings, ranking No. 1 in the Sun Belt Conference and No. 83 in the nation among 297 schools. The Red Wolves’ finish not only set a school record, it topped the program’s previous high of No. 134 set in 1999-2000 by 51 places. Thrust into a football coaching change at the end of the 2012 regular season, Mohajir responded with one of his first major acts as athletics director by appointing an interim head coach and keeping the entire assistant coaching staff in place for the 2013 GoDaddy.com Bowl. The Red Wolves went on to claim their first bowl victory since 1970 and their first win over a top-25 ranked opponent since joining the FBS in 1992. Faced with a head football coaching change following the 2013 regular season as well, Mohajir guided A-State through the process again by keeping the assistant coaching staff in place and giving the Red Wolves everything needed in order to pick up a second consecutive GoDaddy Bowl win. Mohajir conducted two national searches for a new head football coach that resulted in the hiring of Bryan Harsin at the end of 2012 and Blake Anderson a year later. Both hires were heralded by the national media as some of the best in the country. Mohajir’s candid media interviews and engaging public speaking appearances have captivated the Red Wolves fan base, but his actions in a short amount of time have also reflected his vision to take A-State Athletics to new heights. The primary development arm of A-State Athletics, formerly known as the Red Wolf Club, has been renamed the Red Wolves Foundation and a new logo has been introduced as part of a rebranding effort. The changes have been in conjunction with new and exciting initiatives that have been put in place, including a Red Wolves 500 program designed to make a significant impact on donor relations and fundraising opportunities. The positive results are evident with a 103 percent increase in the foundation’s total revenue earned, while A-State has
