FAMILY ATMOSPHERE

1 COLOR, WHITE BG

AVERETT ATHLETICS OVERVIEW

The men’s soccer team stands tall on three pillars. The first of them is family, and the tight-knit Averett family mindset is none more apparent than on the men’s soccer team. By the time a player’s four years have come to an end, his family has grown to include not only his four years of teammates, but also his coaching staff, fans, professors, members of the community and countless others who will have a profound effect on him throughout his collegiate career. Having brothers located all over the world is something that most people will never experience, and one that the coaching staff spotlights in the management of the program.

Baseball Averett’s baseball team, which began play in 1997, has been an annual contender in one of the toughest DIII conferences in the country. The Cougars won the 2003 USA South championship and appeared in the NCAA Tournament. The program has produced several All-Americans and pro draft picks. Men’s Basketball The Averett men’s basketball program enjoyed four consecutive conference championship seasons (three regular season and three tournament), as well as three consecutive NCAA Tournament berths from 2007-2009 and four total as a program. The program has also produced multiple All-Americans. Women’s Basketball The Averett women’s basketball program has risen to the top half of the conference in recent years. The Cougars have four straight 11-win seasons.

WORK ETHIC The second pillar of the men’s soccer program is work ethic. A culture of hard-work is ever-present in the men’s soccer program, and 10 minutes at any training session or team meeting makes that apparent. As intense athletes on the field, studious students in the classroom, and proactive members in the community, members of the Averett men’s soccer team leave college ready to lead by example.

SUCCESS The final pillar of the men’s soccer team is success. Players on the men’s soccer team take pride in rejecting excuses and refusing to settle for anything other than goal-achieve-

Men’s & Women’s Cross Country The cross country programs have seen a steady improvement in recent years. The women’s team has a conference title to its credit.

ment. The ability to find creative solutions to problems is an essential skill that players transfer from the playing field into their personal lives, and as a result alumni are able to take ownership of their success. Men’s soccer alumni are continually checking-in with stories of success, and the trend shows no signs of slowing.

Football The Averett football team has claimed one conference championship, produced more than 100 all-conference performers and numerous professional players despite its young existence (program began play in 2000). Men’s Golf The men’s golf program at Averett boasts the 2003 Division III NCAA national championship and has made three NCAA appearances as a team. Women’s Soccer The women’s soccer team has become a contender in the USA South Conference after reaching the tournament championship game for the first time in 2010. Softball The softball program, winner of one conference regular season title and one tournament championship, has back-to-back 20win seasons. Men’s Tennis The men’s tennis program has a history of success, ranging from 11 conference championships to numerous All-Americans. Women’s Tennis The women’s tennis program has claimed six conference championships and produced several individual award-winners. Women’s Volleyball The Averett women’s volleyball team is one of the most successful programs in the region. The Cougars have won 13 conference titles, made four NCAA appearances and have totaled numerous individual conference awards.

Averett University Athletics is committed to giving back to both the campus and surrounding Danville community. By providing opportunities for student-athletes to serve, these young men and women make meaningful contributions to society. Teams as well as individual student-athletes are involved in numerous charity and community organizations and events. Some student-athletes have also created, initiated and implemented service projects and activities in the community. The Averett men’s soccer team has done a number of events to help serve the community. The team hosted a one-day clinic for the Southside Soccer Club where dozens of young players came out to learn the game from college-level coaches. During the holiday season the men’s soccer team raised enough money to sponsor a family in need. The money that was raised helped the family to enjoy a Christmas dinner and afford presents to open on Christmas morning. In addition to sponsoring the family, the men also raised nearly $150 for Food for the Poor, the largest international relief and development organization in the nation. The members of the men’s soccer team also teamed up with the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee during Halloween to collect cans and non-perishables. The “Can-oween” event collected over 500 cans for donation to needy charities around the area. As a whole, Averett University teamed up with the rest of the schools in the USA South Conference for an annual food drive during the fall. Averett collected canned goods and non-perishable items and delivered them to God’s Storehouse in Danville just before Thanksgiving. Averett University donates nearly 2,000 canned goods as a part of the USA South’s Cans Across the Conference each year. Across the conference, 51,248 cans and other items were collected by the league’s schools in 2011, which was the seventh year of the can drive. The event was created by the members of the USA South Athletic Conference Student-Athlete Advisory Committee in order to help those in need around the holiday season.

USA SOUTH CONFERENCE

2 COLOR, WHITE BG

1 COLOR, WHITE BG

One of the oldest Division III conferences in the nation, the USA South Conference was born as the Dixie Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in 1963 when six institutions with similar philosophies of academics and athletics joined as founding members. Those colleges were Charlotte College (now UNC-Charlotte), College of Charleston (S.C.), Methodist College (now Methodist University), North Carolina Wesleyan College, St. Andrews Presbyterian College and Lynchburg College. The basis for the new athletic conference was that participation would be strictly amateur, and thus no athletically awarded financial aid or athletic scholarships would be awarded. That philosophy still exists today. In February 2003, it was announced that the Dixie Intercollegiate Athletic Conference would change its name to the USA South Athletic Conference. The name change was made official on July 1, 2003, and the first USA South Athletic Conference championships were awarded in the fall of 2003. The Conference was originally affiliated with the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and remained with that affiliation until 1973. At that time, the NCAA divided into three legislative and competitive divisions, with Division III allowing membership for nonathletic scholarship institutions only. The Dixie joined the NCAA, and in so doing, became one of the first conferences accepted into Division III. Since the inception of Division III, the USA South has been a leader in many areas, and has gained an outstanding regional and national reputation in a number of sports. The Conference sponsored athletic programs for men only until 1981. In that year, the NCAA expanded its sponsorship to include women’s sports, and the Dixie followed that lead by including women’s sports. The Conference now sponsors championships in men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s soccer,

Rita Wiggs Commissioner

women’s volleyball, football, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, golf and women’s lacrosse for a total of 14 sports. Presently, the Conference features 13 institutions, four in Virginia, five in North Carolina, three in Georgia and one in Tennessee. Averett University, Christopher Newport University, Ferrum College, Greensboro College, LaGrange College, Mary Baldwin College, Maryville College, Meredith College, Piedmont College and William Peace University have joined Methodist and N.C. Wesleyan and make up today’s conference full-time membership. Maryville became a competing member of the Conference in the fall of 2005 as a football only member and joins the conference as a full-time member in 2012-13, along with LaGrange and Piedmont. Agnes Scott College compete in women’s lacrosse only. The USA South announced in May 2012 that Covenant College and Huntingdon College will join the conference in 2013-14. Christopher Newport is leaving the USA South following 2012-13 in all sports except football.
