Georgia College Facilities
Built in 2003, Bobcat Field at West Campus provides an excellent venue for some of the best collegiate soccer available in the state of Georgia. Bordered by native trees on three sides to provide a picturesque backdrop, this soccerspecific facility features new light fixtures to host evening competition, a prominent scoreboard to keep fans in the know and well-manicured hybrid bermuda grass turf. Officially part of the Peeler Complex - including the baseball and softball fields nearby - the field was opened in the fall of 2004, the first varsity season for Bobcat soccer. Prior to the 2009 season, Georgia College began construction on seatback stands to the vicwing hillside, improving the viewer’s experience while adding a more complete feel to the facility as a whole. The Bobcats have had success on the home pitch, 27-10-5 in their four seasons, including two Peach Belt Tournament Quarterfinal victories. The ‘Cats were 7-0-2 at home in 2008. Georgia College has many fine athletic facilities in which to compete, highlighted by the $9 million multipurpose Centennial Center. The Centennial Center, which was completed in the fall of 1989, serves as the home for the Georgia College men and women’s basketball teams as well as the offices of the Bobcat athletic department. Located within the historical district of Milledgeville, the 95,000 square-foot building also houses the Department of Kinesiology, and the Center for Health and Lifestyles. The completion of the facility guaranteed that the Bobcats would be competing in one of the finest on-campus arenas in the
state of Georgia and the southeast. The Center has a seating capacity of 4,071 fixed seats and can accommodate up to 800 additional persons with the arranging of chairs on the floor. It features foldout end zone and upper bleachers and three full size basketball courts. Its primary use is for Bobcat basketball, but it also is excellent for large events such as concerts, conference general sessions or exhibits. In addition, the Centennial Center serves as the home of the nationally ranked Georgia College men and women’s tennis teams. Seven lighted laykold surface courts are located just outside of the Centennial Center. The Centennial Center also has a three-lane 1/8-mile walking/running indoor track, an outdoor swimming pool, a free-weight room, four racquetball courts and an athletic training room. The Bobcat baseball, softball and soccer teams compete at the Peeler Athletic Complex. Located minutes from the main campus, the Peeler complex underwent a major facelift in 1992 with the addition of box seats and the renovation of the backstop for the baseball field. The softball field was built in 1990 complete with a scoreboard and bleachers. In 1996 lights were added to both parks, and the complex was dedicated to Mike Peeler, the former athletics director at Georgia College. The baseball field was renamed in honor of John Kurtz, the former coach who put Georgia College baseball on the map. New dugouts were constructed in 2005 along with a new softball pressbox. The Georgia College golf team competes multiple beautiful courses the area, including Harbor Club, the Golf Club at Cuscowilla and Little Fishing Creek Golf Course. These courses provide Bobcat golfers with outstanding home venues.

In an effort to make Georgia College more of a home for Bobcat soccer players, the lockerroom at West Campus got a muchneeded facelift in the summer of 2008. The facility has a much softer look, and is more inviting with the addition of couches and other more home-style furniture. Bobcat futbollers can also enjoy their own sit-in style locker, complete with attractive name-plate. “Renovating this lockerroom was one of the first things I wanted to take care of on my arrival,” said head coach Juan Pablo Favero. “A lockerroom should serve as a second home for a student-athlete, and where the facility was at when I came here was in need of a makeover.” “What was once a rarely-used attribute of this West Campus facility will now be the central location for Bobcat soccer, and I’d like to deeply thank everyone involved in the project’s success.”

2008 Season Review
Bobcats garner first NCAA Tournament trip among other great moments
Georgia College also landed its first players on the NSCAA All-Region Team, as senior forward Hayley Ferrell and junior defender Morgan Cobb earned slots on the Southeast Region squad. Ferrell and Cobb joined five other Bobcats on the All-PBC teams, as sophomores Jessica Binkowski, Mary Rob Plunkett, Ally Treat and Kayla Emerson joined freshman Karen Bonilla with all-conference honors. Junior Kara Teresi and freshman Megan McAlpin were named to the PBC All-Tournament Team. The Bobcats got it done in the classroom as well, as senior Beth Coughlin and Binkowski were selected to the ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-District Team. Coughlin, Jamie Nevin, Treat, Binkowski, Lyric Burnett, Jeni Day, Kelli McLane, Plunkett and Ferrell were also selected to the first Peach Belt All-Academic Team. The Bobcats also picked up a team academic award through the NSCAA and the National Ethics/Sportsmanship honor from the same organization.
With a 13-3-4 record, best in the program's history, a 5-1-2 Peach Belt record, also best ever, and with several team and individual records broken, there is no doubt that Georgia College Soccer has become an elite program recognized Nationally with it's first NSCAA National Ranking as well as it's first-ever NCAA National Tournament Appearance. In perspective, this was truly an amazing season not just in the historical context of the program, but for any program at any time: A dominating team defense which was on top of the national statistics, being nationally ranked and making the NCAA tournament is a great year for any team and especially for a five-year old program in the middle of it's first coaching transition. After a tough pre-season schedule, the season started with a 0-0 tie against Belmont Abbey, not the way coaches and players would have envisioned, but in the second game against perennial regional powerhouse Tusculum College, a 21 win gave the team much needed confidence boost. Two more wins against non-conference opponents and a 3-0-1 record meant the team's first appearance in the NSCAA Regional Ranking, an honor maintained through the end of the season. The team's first conference match against UNC Pembroke would prove to be a test since UNCP was ranked in the top-10 nationally and undefeated. In an accident-filled game, UNCP would break through at the end of the half and hand the Bobcats its first loss of the season, and what would be the only regular season loss of the year. A four-game winning streak including a 1-0 win at home vs. Lander, preceded a much anticipated match against Armstrong Atlantic, who had been in the NCAA Tournament the last two years. After going down an early goal, the Bobcats showed much character and were able to score two goals before halftime. It seemed the score would hold up until the last minute of play when AASU scored a tying goal to send the game into OT, but neither team was able to break the deadlock. In the next six games, the Bobcats posted a 5-0-1 record, including four key PBC wins leading to the last regular season contest at Columbus State. CSU had already clinched the PBC Championship, and Georgia College could finish no higher than third place, its highest finish ever, but the game was a defensive battle, in which the tough Georgia College defense provided its 12th shutout. The Conference tournament brackets were set and the Bobcats beat Lander 2-0 in the first round to set up a rematch with UNC Pembroke in the semifinal in Evans, Ga. In a game where the Bobcats were out playing their opponents, a "fatal five minutes cost us the game," said Favero referring to a missed penalty kick for the Bobcats and allowing two goals right after that. A late tally off a corner kick proved to be too little. So could this great season have come to an end .... Georiga College would have to wait three long nights and two days to find out if their 13-2-4 record would be enough to get an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. On a Monday afternoon, as the team gathered in the locker room, the announcement was made and the team exploded with joy and emotion. The Bobcats had done it ... they were on their way to the first-ever NCAA appearance and would face Catawba College, a team Favero was familiar with from his days in the South Atlantic Conference. The game started well for the team with the run of play and early scoring chances clearly on their favor. One of those clear chances was capitalized halfway through the first half on a goal by sophomore Kayla Emerson. The second half saw the momentum change and a couple of missed clearances led to the tying tally by Catawba. The uncharacteristic defensive lapses would prove to be the undoing of the team as in the first OT period, a similar play would lead to the last goal the team would allow in 2008, and with it the end of an incredible season.

Peach Belt Conference Vision Statement
The Peach Belt Conference is committed to providing through its dependent collegiate members, a forum for student participation in athletic, academic, and co-curricular events under the auspices of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, Division II.
We will exemplify the characteristics of a premier intercollegiate conference that prides itself on the inclusion of students of all demographic groups who wish to participate in a well-rounded sports program. Our institutions, our academic goals, our athletic aspirations reflect a commonality of purpose and a commitment to excellence in the classroom and on the playing field.
Since its inception in 1991, the Peach Belt Conference has worked tirelessly to become one of the elite conferences in NCAA Division II. Now entering its 19th season with 26 national championships and 27 national finalists, the PBC has accomplished that goal. Starting with only two championships in 1991, in men's and women's basketball, the conference has expanded to 12 championship sports with the addition of women’s soccer in the fall of 2000. The conference traces its roots back to November of 1988 when 11 schools first met in Greenville, S.C. to form a Division II conference. Following a second meeting on Dec. 3, 1989, five of those 11 schools, plus two others, formed the Peach Belt and began play in 1991. The Peach Belt was less than a year old before capturing a national championship. The Columbus State golf team took the honor by winning the 1992 national crown, the first of three golf championships the Cougars own. The 2005-06 season was another successful year with USC Aiken winning its third straight golf championship and Columbus State finishing second, and Armstrong Atlantic State was the runner-up in the women's tennis national championship. The seven charter members of the conference were Armstrong Atlantic State University, Columbus State University, Francis Marion University, Georgia College & State University, Lander University, USC Aiken and USC
Upstate. The name Peach Belt Athletic Conference was adopted in January of 1990 and modified to Peach Belt Conference in May of 2000. Augusta State joined the conference in 1991 and UNC Pembroke became the ninth member on July 1, 1992. They were followed by Kennesaw State University on July 1, 1994, Clayton College & State University on July 1, 1995 and the University of North Florida on July 1, 1997. Kennesaw State and North Florida departed for the Division I ranks in 2005 and the conference welcomed in North Georgia College & State University as its 11th member in the fall of 2005. Georgia Southwestern State University was accepted as the league’s 12th member in the spring of 2006. Flagler College and the University of Montevallo will join the conference in 2009. Dave Brunk was named the second commissioner in the history of the PBC during the summer of 2007. Brunk most recently served as commissoner of the Northeast-10 Conference for the past nine years. Dr. David Potter, president of North Georgia College & State University, is the president of the Peach Belt in 2009-10. The conference currently holds championships in 12 sports, six for men and six for women. They are men's and women's cross country, men's and women's soccer, volleyball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's tennis, baseball, softball and men’s and women’s golf.

Service/Ethics BOBCAT SOCCER JOINS UP WITH LITTLE FEET MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College soccer team and head coach Juan Pablo Favero are proud to announce an agreement with non-profit organization Little Feet to purchase practice balls.
faster than a new soccer ball can, “ said organization founder Trevor Slavick. “It is simply amazing how one ball can make such a huge difference in that child's life. Some of these future smiles will now come courtesy of the Bobcat Soccer Team. A soccer ball won't stop a war and it won't fill a belly, but it might help heal a soul and let children be children; at least for a little while.”
A program beginning in March of 2006, Little Feet is a grassroots organization sending soccer balls to underprivileged kids across the globe. The program is simple, for each ball purchased through the organization, Little Feet donates a ball to a needy child to promote the game of soccer worldwide. The Bobcats are just the second collegiate soccer team to join up with the organization.
The Bobcat soccer team will use the balls for practice purposes, and are happy to give back to future soccer stars. Individuals can purchase soccer balls through Little Feet as well. To help build the program, visit the Little Feet web site at www.littlefeet.com .
“We have traveled to some of the most poverty stricken areas all over the world and nothing can put a smile on a kid's face
BOBCAT SOCCER HONORED BY NSCAA honor as it is a very difficult one to attain," says head coach Juan Pablo Favero. "We have a trident of areas we want to excel in: athletically, academically, and as ambassadors of Georgia College. Our team has attained a high level of performance in each of these areas. This is the golden broach for a season of excellence, in all we achieved in 2008."
MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Bobcats were a recipient of the 2008 National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Ethics/Sportsmanship Award, the first such award in program history. The requirements for this prestigious award are no red cards and limiting yellow cards to fewer than 10. The Bobcats were placed at the Bronze level due to six yellow cards during the season.
The Bobcats also received a NSCAA College Team Academic Award. Teams must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher in order to receive the award.
Georgia College is one of only 12 Divison II programs to receive the honor. The NSCAA recognizes 66 programs (including NAIA, junior colleges and both genders). An interesting side note, the Bobcats are the sole Peach Belt Conference (PBC) recipient and team in their respective region to win the Ethics/Sportmanship Award.
Georgia College (3.52 GPA) was tied for 14th out of 262 schools; it was also first among PBC schools. "I have been so impressed with this group of ladies and the commitment to excellence they have shown in every area of their lives," Favero said "This recognition for their commitment to academics is a direct reflection on the effort and time our student-athletes have invested into their studies, so we are very proud for them. For us to have such a high team GPA with the high academic standards and requirements at Georgia College, only adds value to this achievement."
"The Ethics/Sportsmanship Award is one of the most difficult to achieve in the entire NSCAA awards program," says Chair of the NSCAA Ethics Committee, Dr. Brian Crossman. "I am extremely proud of the team for attaining this high
