Head Coach Mike Kazlausky

#8 Mike Kazlausky (Maj. Ret.) Head Coach Fourth Year USAFA, 1991 Mike Kazlausky enters his fourth year as Air Force baseball head coach in 2014. Kazlausky was named head baseball coach on June 2, 2011, by Athletic Director Dr. Hans Mueh. Kazlausky retired from active duty, effective June 1, 2011, and his interim tag was lifted to official head coach status. Kazlausky signed a three-year contract through the 2014 season. A former player and Academy graduate, Kazlausky epitomizes what it means to don the Falcon baseball Blue and White. Kazlausky, known as “Coach Kaz” is a 1991 Academy graduate and has logged six years as an assistant coach at the Academy. He is the first Academy graduate to become head baseball coach at Air Force and was the program’s first military coach since 1988. Kazlausky retired with the rank of major after 20 years of meritorious service with the U.S. Air Force. As the interim head coach in 2011, Kazlausky led the Falcons to a 19-36 overall record, leading the program to the most wins since 2002. The 19 wins were also the second-most

in school history against Division I opponents and the most Division I wins by a first-year head coach at the Academy. The Falcons posted a 15-39 record in 2013. The Falcons had their winningest conference season since 2002. Kazlausky had his first player drafted in senior catcher Garrett Custons, who was a 10th round draft pick of the Toronto Blue Jays. Custons was also one of 15 semifinalists for the Johnny Bench Award. Falcon baseball also continued to excel in the classroom, producing a school-record eight Academic AllConference players. In 2012, Air Force went 14-39 with a young team that often times started as many as five freshmen in the field. The Falcons posted a 6.10 team ERA that was the second-lowest in the past 30 years. The Falcons featured two All-Mountain West selections in junior catcher Garrett Custons and sophomore designated hitter Seth Kline. The Falcons also posted their first winning season at home since 2002 and defeated a Big 12 school (Kansas) for the first time since

2001. In addition, Air Force set a school record with 46 sacrifice bunts. In his first year, Kazlausky led Air Force to its first win over a Pac 10 school in 21 years and its first four-game sweep since 2003. The team fielded .960 to set a new school record. Sophomore Garrett Custons earned First-Team All-Mountain West honors by ranking in the conference top 10 in 11 categories. Sophomore right-hander Sean Carley posted one of the best seasons ever by a Falcon pitcher, earning second-team All-MW honors, the first Falcon pitcher to earn all-conference honors since 2002. Carley posted a 3.94 earned run average, the lowest at the Academy in 28 years. His 4.10 ERA in conference games set a school record in the Mountain West era. Air Force lowered its team ERA by over five runs a game from the 2010 season (11.31 to 6.09). The 6.09 team ERA was the lowest at Air Force in 29 years, dating back to 1982. “This is my school and no one is more proud than I to have gone through the Academy and

Kazlausky and Kansas head coach Ritch Price exchange hats prior to Kansas-Air Force game in 2011.

Head Coach Mike Kazlausky to have served for 20 years in the Air Force,” Kazlausky said. “I look forward to having the opportunity to continue to represent our United States Air Force Academy! It is a tremendous honor and a privilege to be associated with the Academy and the Air Force as the Head Baseball Coach. I have a great understanding of all the pillars at the Academy, and I truly understand the mission of the Academy and the Air Force. Our job, as a staff, is to ensure success not only on the baseball field but in all facets of the Academy and that each young man is ready to lead our great country upon graduation!” As one of the most inspirational and emotional players to ever wear the Air Force baseball uniform, Kazlausky came to USAFA baseball as a walk-on and started all four years. At the time of his graduation, he held eight career records and still ranks among the top six in nine of the 13 offensive categories. A two-time all-Western Athletic Conference (WAC) selection, Kazlausky led the Falcons in batting in 1989 and 1991. After a standout baseball career with the Falcons, “Kaz” spent three seasons from 1993 to 1995 as an assistant coach to former Falcon head coach Paul Mainieri, now the head skipper at LSU. During this time, the Falcons posted three consecutive winning seasons. The 1994 team led the nation in batting average, slugging percentage and triples. The 1995 team won 29 games, the second most in school history. After leaving the Academy in the summer of 1995, Kaz spent four years at Charleston Air Force Base, S.C., as a pilot in the C-17 aircraft.

He later returned to the Academy in the fall of 2000 as a TG4 and T-41/C-150 evaluator pilot in the 94th Flying Training Squadron. In addition to his flight duties, he also served as the volunteer baseball coach for the Falcons as well as the Preparatory School head baseball coach. During his tenure, the 2002 Falcon team set the school record for most Div. I victories and two Falcon players were drafted into the minor leagues.

Assistant Coach Toby Bicknell

#10 Toby Bicknell Assistant Coach Fourth Year Wingate, 2002 Toby Bicknell enters his third year as assistant baseball coach at the Air Force Academy. Bicknell, who coaches the hitters and defense, along with running the offense from third base, also spearheads the recruiting efforts for the Falcons. Air Force baseball’s 2013 recruiting class is ranked #67 in the nation according to Perfect Game. The Falcons crack Perfect Game’s Top 100 rankings for the first time in program history. The Falcons have 10 commitments so far for the 2013-14 class. Air Force has three commits that are top 10-ranked players in their respective states. The Falcons are the lone Top 100 representative from the Mountain West (for teams playing in MW in 2014). In 2012 Bicknell coached a trio of Falcons to Mountain West Baseball AllConference team. The Falcons were led by senior Blair Roberts who earned firstteam honors at second base. Roberts earned the selection with a .302 conference batting average, becoming Air Force’s first all-conference middle infielder in the Mountain West era. Junior Garrett Custons was named second-team catcher, becoming Air Force’s first two-time all-conference honoree since 2003. Sophomore Seth Kline earned second team honors at DH/Utility, raising his batting average 84 points and slugging by 150 points in just one season. The Falcons also set a school record with 46 sacrifice bunts and ranked 33rd in the nation in triples per game. Defensively, the Falcons fielded .959 on the season, the second-best mark in school history. The Falcon catchers (Garrett Custons and Brian Sicher) combined to throw out 30 baserunners on the season ranking second in the Mountain West. Their 53.6 percent runners thrown out average was tops in the conference. In 2011, Bicknell helped lead the Fighting Falcons to the most wins since 2002, their first win over a Pac-10 school in 21 years and their first series sweep since 2003. Defensively, Air Force set the school record for fielding percentage at .960. Several Falcon players accomplished career highlights in 2011 including senior Nathan Carter who set the NCAA Division I record with 33 career triples. Carter also led the Mountain West Conference with seven triples. Sophomore Garrett Custons ranked in the top 10 among the Mountain West in 11 offensive categories while garnering a First-Team All-Mountain West selection. Bicknell spent the 2009 and 2010 seasons at Davidson College. At Davidson, Bicknell dramatically helped turn around the Wildcat offense and defense. During his first season with the Wildcats, the 2009 team improved in eight offensive categories - home runs (30 to 66), doubles (89 to 122), runs scored (272 to 313), RBIs (252 to 283), total bases (647 to 827), slugging percentage (.375 to .468), on-base percentage and stolen bases (45 to 56), and finished seventh or higher in the Southern Conference in five offensive categories. Davidson had five starters that batted over .300, three with double-digit homers and four starters with double-digits in doubles. Individually, several Wildcat hitters showed major improvements and turned in career-best seasons. Zach Kayne, drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the 22nd round of the 2009 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, broke the school record with 22 doubles, while hitting a career-high 10 home runs and leading the team with a .340 average. Drew Gadaire earned a spot on the All-Freshman Southern Conference team, after hitting 11 home runs in his rookie season, and Danny Weiss was named to the All-Southern Conference Second Team as the designated hitter. The Davidson College 2010 season was highlighted by a 2-2 record vs. ACC teams including wins over Duke and nationally ranked #16 Virginia Tech. The Wildcats also made great strides defensively, committing 13 less errors than the 2009 team, improving their fielding percentage to .960 and turning 36 double plays. The 2010 season saw Andrew Barna earn SoCon All-Freshman and Freshman AllAmerican. Prior to his time at Davidson, Bicknell spent two seasons as the Volunteer assistant coach at Clemson University. During his time at Clemson, Bicknell worked primarily with infielders and hitters along with coordinating summer camps at Clemson. The Tigers compiled a 70-51-1 record during his two years and he coached five players who were picked in the Major League Baseball draft. During the 2008 season, the Tigers boasted one of the toughest schedules in the country, taking five games over top-25 opponents, seven over regional teams and three over super regional teams. In his first season at Clemson in 2007, Bicknell helped coach one of the best infields in Tiger history, led by first baseman Andy D’Alessio, shortstop Taylor Harbin, and third baseman Marquez Smith. Smith was a First Team All-ACC selection who hit .336 with 13 homers and 56 RBIs, while D’Alessio, who was the MVP of

2014 Air Force Baseball

the regionals, batted .319 with 17 home runs and 50 RBIs. Harbin added 19 doubles, 11 homers, and a team-high 62 RBIs. The Tigers advanced to the NCAA Super Regional in 2007 after capturing the NCAA Regional title. Clemson had 12 wins over teams ranked in the top-25 of several of the baseball polls and had a school-record 11 players selected in 2007 MLB draft, including five players in the first three rounds. Prior to his time at Clemson, Bicknell spent two years as an assistant coach at North Carolina-Pembroke. The Braves posted a record of 63-47 in those two years, received a national ranking as high as seventh, and posted back-to-back 30 win seasons for the first time in program history, while tying the school record for wins at 32. The 2006 team posted school records in seven offensive categories while also having six of its starters hit .315 or better. Defensively, the Braves set program records for fielding percentage, putouts and assists. Bicknell also coached All-American Jason Morales, who was eventually drafted by the Kansas City Royals. In eight years at the collegiate level, Bicknell has coached 14 all-conference players, two Freshman All-Americans, and eight MLB draft picks. All totaled, Bicknell has tutored 11 MLB draft picks. Bicknell spent the 2003 and 2004 seasons at nearby Myers Park High School in Charlotte, NC. The 2003 Mustangs were Western North Carolina State Champions and NC 4A State runner-up. That team contained five future Division I players including former North Carolina pitcher Robert Woodard, who was drafted by the San Diego Padres in the 2007 MLB Draft. From 2000-2004 Bicknell was a part of the On Deck O’s where he coached 18 players that went on to play college baseball. Between 1998-00, Bicknell served as an assistant coach at Providence Senior High School in Charlotte, while also assisting with the Post 235 Matthews American Legion Team. Bicknell, who is entering his 14th year as a coach, has spent seven years in all coaching high school and travel baseball in the Charlotte area. He has coached 30 high school players that have gone on to play college baseball (25 at the Division I level), including seven ACC Players, 10 Southern Conference players, and three that were drafted by MLB. Bicknell was a starter on the 2002 Wingate baseball team, where he played third base. The Charlotte native lettered three times at Charlotte Christian School from 1995-97. He earned all-conference honors as a junior and senior and was all-state and All-Mecklenburg County as a senior. He also was a starter on the Knights football team both his junior and senior years, including starting quarterback his senior season. Bicknell, earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education at Wingate University in 2002, and his master’s degree in sports administration at UNC-Pembroke in 2006. Bicknell and his wife Faith have been married five years and reside in Monument, CO.

Air Force Head Coaches Joe Robison

Paul Mainieri

Joe Robison could be called the “Father of Air Force Baseball.” His 282 wins are the most in school history and 130 more than the next closest coach (Mainieri). Robison led the 1979 team to a 33-13 record, the highest win total in school history. His 1980 team was 27-9-1 and posted the second-best winning percentage in school history. Robison led the Falcons to eight winning seasons, the most of any coach in AFA history. Robison led the Falcons into a new era in 1981 as the Falcons joined the Western Athletic Conference. Robison coached five seasons in the WAC and produced the most WAC wins (44) and the most WAC wins per season (8.8) in school history. During his 14 seasons, Robison coached four GTE/CoSIDA academic All-Americans and seven all-WAC performers. After leaving the Academy, Robison served as a scout in professional baseball. Robison helped build the New York Yankee baseball club that won the 1996, 1998 and 1999 World Series championships.

COACH (YEARS)

YRS

Paul Mainieri’s legacy at the Academy will not soon be forgotten. An enthusiastic coach with a burning desire for success, Mainieri is the only coach in school history to win 20 or more games in six consecutive seasons. The Miami, Fla., native posted a 12-4 mark in service academy games. He coached three of AFA’s eight All-Americans, two of the seven freshman All-Americans and 12 of AFA’s 42 all-conference players. Mainieri has the second-most wins in school history with 152 from 1989-94. In 1989, he led the Falcons to their best conference record (13-13) in AFA history. In 1993 and 1994, he led the Falcons to consecutive winning seasons for the first time in 15 years. Mainieri’s teams consistently ranked among the nation’s top hitting teams. In 1994, the Falcons led the nation in batting average, triples per game and slugging percentage. The team also ranked third in scoring and sixth in home runs. Following the 1994 season, Mainieri left the Academy to take the head coaching position at the University of Notre Dame. In 12 seasons with the Irish, Mainieri kept the program as a perennial national powerhouse, posting a 533213-3 record, leading the Irish to the 2002 College World Series. As a testament to Mainieri’s coaching legacy, he was hired as head baseball coach at LSU, one of the most storied programs in collegiate baseball history, in 2007 and begins his fifth year with the Tigers. In 2009, Mainieri led the Tigers to the NCAA national title by winning the CWS, giving LSU its sixth national title. Mainieri was also CollegeBaseballInsider.com and Rivals. com Coach of the year in 2009.

Colorado Springs

AMERICA’S BEST Colorado Springs was ranked in 2007 as the No. 1 Best Big City (over 300,000) to Live by Money Magazine based on quality of life, climate, social activities, cleanliness and safety. The immortal words of an eastern visitor in 1893 live perpetually at the base of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. When teacher and poet Katherine Lee Bates took a wagon ride to the summit of Pikes Peak she was inspired to write a song that is still recited today. Her view from atop the 14,110-foot peak was the basis of her song “America the Beautiful”. The history of Colorado Springs traverses back to 1870 when Gen. William Jackson Palmer first visited the region and was captivated by its grandeur. A year later, he began designing his city of dreams. From its beginning on the corner of Pikes Peak and Cascade Avenues in downtown Colorado Springs, the city has grown more than 183 square miles and to nearly 400,000 people in the city and 600,000 in the metro area. Colorado Springs is known nationally for its natural attractions. The Garden of the Gods, the area’s No. 1 natural attraction, is a majestic out-cropping of red sandstone rocks which are more than 300 million years old. Colorado Springs is also home to the Pikes Peak Highway, a 19-mile drive up the world’s highest toll road. The area’s No. 1 man-made attraction is the Air Force Academy’s Cadet Chapel.

Another major attraction is the Broadmoor Hotel and Resort. Built in the early 1900s, this five-star resort, hosted the 1995 U.S. Women’s Open Golf Championship and the 2008 Senior U.S. Open, and is nestled into the base of Cheyenne Mountain. The Pikes Peak region is home to the nation’s only mountain zoo. The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, with an elevation of more than 6,800-feet, has received several changes in the past two years. For the outdoors enthusiast, the city and the state offer a plethora of recreational activities. A short drive to the northwest features some of the nation’s finest ski resorts, including the cities of Vail and Aspen. A short jaunt to the southwest or northwest will find some of the best white-water rafting, fishing, hiking and cycling that the country has to offer. Valuing its past with a vision for the future, Colorado Springs is truly a city with unparalleled culture, recreation, growth and opportunity in the 21st century.

Denver

Less than 45 minutes from the Academy and with over 300 days of sunshine per year, The Mile High City of Denver has it all. Truly a sports capitol, Denver has nine professional sports teams, including the Denver Broncos (NFL), Denver Nuggets (NBA), Colorado Avalanche (NHL), Colorado Rockies (MLB), Colorado Rapids (Major League Soccer), Denver Dynamite (Indoor Soccer League), Denver Outlaws (Major League Lacrosse) and the Colorado Mammoth (National Lacrosse League). Recent success among the teams has driven the excitement for these teams a mountain high. The Broncos won the Super Bowl in 1998 and 1999. The Avalanche won the Stanley Cup in 1996 and 2001. The Rockies played in the World Series in 2007. Located just east of the Rocky Mountains and the Continental Divide, Denver has a mild and dry climate with more days of sunshine per year than San Diego and Miami. Golf courses are open year round as the average winter temperature is 45 degrees, warmer than Boston, New York City and St. Louis. The city sits at 5,280 feet above sea level. In fact, there is a step on the State Capitol Building that is exactly one mile above sea level. Even at a mile above sea level, the city is dwarfed

by its backdrop. The foothills being just west of the city and the peaks of the mountain range reach heights of more than 14,000 feet. Despite the proximity to the mountains, the city receives just 8-15 inches of precipitation per year, about the same as Los Angeles. The United States Census Bureau estimates that, in 2006, the population of the City and County of Denver was 566,974, making it the 27th most populous U.S. city. The Denver-Aurora Metropolitan Statistical Area had an estimated 2006 population of 2,408,750 and ranked as the 21st most populous U.S. metropolitan statistical area. Denver has the largest city park system in the nation. There are 650 miles of off-street, bike paths, 90 golf courses and 200 parks. Within a 90-minute drive from downtown Denver, there are opportunities for some of the country’s best skiing, hiking, fishing, rafting and mountain biking.

The Air Force Academy The United States Air Force Academy offers a fouryear program of instruction and experience designed to educate, train and inspire men and women to become officers of character, motivated to lead the United States Air Force in service to our nation. Each cadet graduates with a bachelor of science degree and a commission as a second lieutenant in the Air Force. Course of Study Cadets are exposed to a balanced curriculum that provides the knowledge, skills and responsibilities essential to a career Air Force officer. The entire USAFA experience is integrated and mapped to achieve a set of desired outcomes in every graduate. The core academic curriculum includes courses in basic sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities. Cadets take additional elective courses to complete requirements for one of 32 major areas of study. About 50 percent of the cadets complete majors in science and engineering; the remainder graduate in the social sciences and humanities. Some of the most popular majors include management, aeronautical engineering, foreign area studies, history, behavioral science, civil engineering, astronautical engineering, electrical engineering and engineering mechanics. Faculty Composition The majority of the Academy’s faculty members, more than 500 total, are Air Force officers. They are selected primarily from career-officer volunteers who have established outstanding records of performance and dedication. Each has at least a master’s degree and more than 55 percent have doctorates or other terminal degrees in their field of study. About 30 percent of the faculty are civilians who bring great depth of disciplinary and educational expertise and provide academic stability and continuity. Faculty members are intensely focused on cadet learning as an integral part of their officer development. The Air Force Academy has been ranked No. 1 in the nation for the most accessible and involved faculty. To provide greater contributions by a diverse faculty, the Academy has several distinguished visiting professors and endowed professors who serve one or more years. Officers from other services, as well as officers from allied countries are also members of the faculty. Distinguished civilian and military lecturers also share their expertise with the cadets during the academic year.

Athletic Program The Academy’s athletic program is designed to improve physical fitness, teach athletic skills and develop leadership qualities. To achieve its goals, the Academy offers some of the most extensive physical education, intramural sports and intercollegiate athletic programs in the nation. Cadets take at least three different physical education courses each year. Military Education and Training An air, space and cyberspace-oriented military education, training and leadership program begins with basic cadet training and continues throughout the four years. Seniors are responsible for the organizational leadership of the cadet wing, while juniors and sophomores seek to develop team and interpersonal leadership and instructional skills. Cadets are projected into as many active leadership roles as possible to prepare them to be effective Air Force officers. Fundamental concepts of military organization -- drill, ethics, honor, Air Force heritage and physical training -- are emphasized the first summer during basic cadet training. Freshmen then study the military role in United States society as well as the mission and organization of the Air Force. Sophomores receive instruction in communication skills and juniors study the combat and operational aspects of the Air Force. The Academy offers courses in flying, navigation, soaring and parachuting, building from basic skills to instructor duties. Some cadets may fly light aircraft with the Cadet Flying Team. Summer training for cadets is divided into three, three-week training periods. There are a variety of programs available and each cadet is required to complete two training periods each summer with leave during the other period. All new cadets take six weeks of basic cadet training in their first summer. Combat survival training is a required three-week program during cadets’ second summer. For other second-summer training periods, cadets have options such as working with Airmen in an operational unit at an Air Force installation, airborne parachute training, soaring or basic free-fall parachute training. During their last two summers, all cadets are offered leadership training as supervisors or instructors in the summer programs listed above. Extracurricular activities also are an integral part of the education program. The cadet ski club, drum and bugle corps, cadet chorale and forensics are a few of the programs available. Nominations Nominations to the Academy may be obtained through a congressional sponsor or by meeting eligibility criteria in other categories of competition established by law.

History of The Academy In 1948, a board of leading civilian and military educators was appointed to plan the curriculum for an academy that would meet the needs of the newly established Air Force. The board determined that Air Force requirements could not be met by expanding the other service academies and recommended an Air Force Academy be established without delay. In 1949, then Secretary of the Air Force W. Stuart Symington appointed a commission to assist in selecting a site and on April 1, 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower authorized creation of the United States Air Force Academy. After considering 580 sites in 45 states, the commission narrowed the choice to three locations. The summer of 1954, Secretary of the Air Force Harold Talbott selected a site near Colorado Springs, Colo. Colorado contributed $1 million toward purchase of the property. In July 1955, the first Academy class entered interim facilities at Lowry Air Force Base, Denver, while construction began. It was sufficiently completed for occupancy by the cadet wing in late August 1958. Initial construction cost was $142 million. Women entered the Academy on June 28, 1976, as members of the class of 1980.

Director of Athletics - Dr. Hans J. Mueh nal/external model that has streamlined resources and made the department more effective from top to bottom. In addition, the athletic department made the transition to a federally-chartered nonprofit organization in the summer of 2013, which will lead to more fund-raising opportunities. Mueh was instrumental in the USAFA Endowment and the announcement of the Holaday Athletic Center, an indoor training facility. The $15 million facility was completed in July 2011.

Dr. Hans J. Mueh is in his 10th year as the director of athletics at the Air Force Academy. A retired Air Force brigadier general, Mueh was vice dean of faculty for two years prior to his retirement from active duty in the summer of 2004. Mueh was heavily involved in Academy athletics before becoming director of athletics. He was the Academy’s faculty athletics representative from 1996-2004 and was a long-time member of the board of directors for the Air Force Academy Athletics Association. Since becoming the director of athletics, Mueh has led the Academy to some remarkable feats. In 2007, the Academy was one of only three schools (Michigan State and Boston College) to reach post-season play in football (2007), men’s basketball and ice hockey (2006-07). It marked the first time a service academy has ever had a team compete in the post-season in all three sports. In addition, under Mueh’s watch the men’s basketball team has played in another NCAA tournament and the National Invitational Tournament’s Final Four. The ice hockey team has won the conference championship and advanced to the NCAA tournament five of the last six years. Mueh was on the selection committee that hired current head coach Frank Serratore and led the Academy’s move into the Atlantic Hockey Association. The football program, the Academy’s flagship sport, has gone through a major overhaul under Mueh. He led the transition from the retirement of the legendary Fisher DeBerry after 23 years at the helm to hiring current head coach Troy Calhoun, a 1989 Academy graduate. Calhoun’s impact was immediate, leading the Falcons to a 9-4 overall mark and a second-place finish in the Mountain West Conference in 2007. The Falcons qualified for their first bowl game in seven years, playing in the Armed Forces Bowl in 2007. The program has gone to a school-record six consecutive bowl games and averaged over 9,000 bowl tickets sold. Mueh has been just as successful behind the scenes with the administration of the department. Mueh restructured the department with an inter-

Mueh has also been active within the conference and the NCAA. He was recently selected to be part of the NCAA Division I Amateurism Cabinet and has been active on the NCAA’s academics/eligibility compliance cabinet, the men’s golf committee and the region 7 postgraduate scholarship committee. Mueh has been equally active within the conference on various leadership committees. He is currently on the awards and recognition committee and has previously served on the joint council executive committee, and committees on championships, television and sportsmanship. Before assuming his duties as vice dean at the Academy, Mueh was permanent professor and head of the department of chemistry at the Academy, a position he held since October 1987 where he oversaw the annual design and instruction of 25 undergraduate courses for 1,500 cadets annually. Mueh was born Jan. 8, 1944, in Celle, Germany, and emigrated to the United States in 1951. He entered the Air Force in 1962 as a member of the Academy’s eighth graduating class, and graduated with a bachelor of science degree in chemistry in 1966. While at the Academy, Mueh was a two-year letterwinner in soccer as a goalie. He still holds the Academy record for saves in a game with 30, accomplishing it twice in 1965 against North Carolina and Benedictine. In his junior and senior years, Mueh helped the Falcons to the Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Soccer League championship and quarterfinal berths in the NCAA tournament. He was a first-team allleague selection in 1965. Following graduation, Mueh completed two assignments in intelligence before attending the University of Wisconsin where he earned his master’s degree in chemistry in 1970. He later earned a doctorate

degree in chemistry from Wisconsin in 1976 as a distinguished graduate. He has also completed Squadron Officer School, Air Command and Staff College and Air War College. Between earning the two degrees, Mueh returned to the Academy as an instructor in the department of chemistry from 1970-72. He also served as assistant soccer coach and played semi-pro soccer with the Aurora Internationals in Denver during those two years, leading the Internationals to the Colorado state title in 1971. He volunteered for duty in Vietnam and served as an intelligence officer in Saigon, Republic of Vietnam and at Nakhon Phanom RTAB, Thailand, in 1972 and 1973. After earning his doctorate degree, Mueh returned to the Academy in 1976 as an associate professor of chemistry. He remained at the Academy except for a stint in 1985-86 as the special assistant for technical matters at the Defense Intelligence Agency at the Pentagon. In 1986, he assumed the position of acting head, department of chemistry, before being selected for his position of permanent professor and head of the department of chemistry in 1987. As faculty athletics representative, he was active in both the Western Athletic Conference and Mountain West Conference, and was the Academy’s representative on the transition team to form the new MWC, the only faculty athletics representative on the team. He competes in golf, racquetball, handball and tennis, and has promoted Air Force Academy intercollegiate sports throughout his tenure, beginning with work as chairman of the hockey eligibility committee, officer representative to the men’s golf team and five years as the officer representative to the football team. Mueh is married to the former Sally Flax of Cincinnati, Ohio. They have three children: Kristine, Kurt and Deborah.

Falcon Athletics Few schools in the country have an athletic program as extensive as the Air Force Academy’s. The goals of the athletic program are to enhance the physical conditioning of all cadets, to develop the physical skills necessary for officership, to teach leadership in a competitive environment and to build character. There are three subdivisions of the athletic program: intercollegiate athletics, intramurals and physical education. The intercollegiate program has 17 men’s and 10 women’s NCAAsanctioned teams, facing some of the top competition in the nation. Men’s teams are football, baseball, basketball, ice hockey, cross-country, fencing, golf, gymnastics, indoor and outdoor track, lacrosse, rifle, soccer, swimming and diving, tennis, water polo and wrestling. The Academy fields women’s teams in basketball, cross-country, fencing, gymnastics, rifle, indoor and outdoor track, swimming and diving, soccer, tennis and volleyball. In addition, the Academy sponsors two non-NCAA programs; boxing and cheerleading. The majority of the Academy’s men’s and women’s programs compete at the NCAA Division I level in the Mountain West Conference. The Falcons compete in this conference against teams from Boise State, Colorado State, Fresno State, Hawai’i (football only), Nevada, New Mexico, San Diego State, San Jose State, UNLV, Utah State and Wyoming. All sports also compete against non-conference opponents, including many nationally ranked teams. The football team competes annually for the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy, which is emblematic of service academy football supremacy. The Falcons have won the trophy 18 times, which is more than any other academy. The USAFA Cadet Field House is one of the most impressive buildings in the country. It’s a modern, versatile structure with seemingly endless uses. The $5.6 million building is five stories high and 396 feet by 426 feet, the size of three football fields laid side by side. The structure is divided into three areas--basketball arena, ice hockey arena and multipurpose area. The three sections have a combined seating capacity of more than 9,000. Clune Arena seats 5,858. The Cadet Ice Rink has a seating capacity of 2,470, while the multipurpose area seats 1,000 fans for track and field competitions. The $4.1-million renovation to the Cadet Track Stadium, the outdoor home of the Air Force track and field team, was completed in the fall of 2011 and is one of the premier track and field facilities in the nation. The Holaday Athletic Center, a $15.5 million completely donor funded indoor training facility, was completed in July 2011. The Cadet Fitness Center, a $9.5 million, Military Construction project, home of the Air Force Academy’s fencing practice facility and aerobics/weight lifting facility that contains a nearly 33-foot climbing wall, opened in May 2012.

Falcon Field Falcon Field - 7,000 Feet Above Sea Level

Over the years, Falcon Field has become one of the toughest parks in which to play in the nation. Nestled against the Rampart Range of the Rocky Mountains, Falcon Field sits at over 7,000 feet above sea level. In 1991, the field became one of the most unique in the country. Due to the severe Colorado weather, an Astroturf infield was installed with a brand new grass outfield and drainage system. The turf allowed the Falcons to play games after spring snowstorms which, in the past, would have had to be postponed. Also in 1991, the fences were moved back more than 20 feet in some spots. The current dimensions are 349 in left field, 393 in left center, 400 in center, 365 in right cen-

ter and 316 in right field. The “short porch” in right field is protected by a 24-foot chain link “Monster.” As part of the renovation, the dugouts were upgraded with heaters and, permanent helmet and bat racks and the park gained space for more than 500 fans with additional seating on the grass for a capacity of more than 1,000. In the fall of 2004, the old AstroTurf infield was replaced with new Sport Turf. During the first five seasons after the renovation, the Falcons improved in every area of the game - team defense, team offense and team pitching. The batting average of .328 and fielding percentage of .942 were the highest in any five-year period up to that point. The team ERA consistently improved and L the five-year ERA of 7.25 is the best since 2 joining a major conference in 1981. 7 As a result, the Falcons posted 11 a 128-122 record during that time for a 10 winning percentage of .512, the best since 12 joining a major conference in 1981. The 8 Falcons averaged nearly 26 wins per sea-

son in those five years, the best five-year average in school history. AFA’s home winning percentage of .550 in 2000 is the best since a .625 mark in 1995. Since 1957, the Falcons have won 55 percent of the games played at Falcon Field. The 1993 team broke the school record by winning 21 home games. In 57 seasons of Falcon baseball, the team has posted 35 winning seasons at home. In 2013, the Falcons were 7-9 at home. Falcon Field also earned national recognition as the host of the 1976 and 1995 U.S. Olympic Festivals. A new era began for Falcon Field in 2010, as a new FieldTurf surface was installed over the summer of 2009. The entire playing surface, with the exception of a dirt mound, is FieldTurf. In addition, the entire fence surrounding the park was replaced and a new hitters eye was installed. Air Force also upgraded the dugouts, installing new wood seats and an an upgraded heating system.
