2011 Season Preview Coming off a season in which they set the school record for most wins in a season (10) and Summit

League wins in a season (6), the UMKC women’s tennis team is expecting big things from the 2011 squad. Head Coach Kendell Hale, who returns six-of-seven players from last year’s squad that finished third in The Summit League standings, will look to lead his team to its first trip to the NCAA Tournament in 2011. “We always want to increase our goals from year to year, so this year we want to win the conference, not just make it!,” coach Hale said. “The biggest test for this team will be to take our individual talent and bring some team success out of it. We have some amazing talent, we just need to stay consistent with it.” The ‘Roos will face opponents from the Big 12, Missouri Valley and Atlantic-10 Conferences, while also playing seven matches in Kansas City throughout the year. “Our schedule is always tough. I like to schedule over our heads to bring out the best in the girls,” said Hale. “I think this will be a challenging slate for our women’s program that should prepare us for our league matches. We’re really looking forward to getting an

opportunity to play seven matches in Kansas City, as it will help us build on our success from a season ago.” UMKC will get the 2011 season underway in late January in Columbia, Mo. The ‘Roos will open the season against Southeast Missouri State on Jan. 22 before playing Big 12 foe Missouri on Jan. 23. Following road matches with Northern Iowa and Creighton, UMKC will take on UALR in Lawrence and Drake in Des Moines. Once the calendar turns to March, the ‘Roos will host a pair of matches in Kansas City on March 4 and March 6. UMKC will begin the stretch against Houston, a team that finished 11-8 a season ago, before hosting Bradley on March 6. Following a date at Kansas on March 9, the ‘Roos will head to the Sin City for their first Summit League cluster of the season.

The ‘Roos will close out the regular season at home, as the squad will host the second and final Summit League cluster on March 31 through April 2 at the Plaza Tennis Center. UMKC will open play against Oral Roberts, the 2010 regular season and tournament runner-up, on the 31st before playing Western Illinois, South Dakota State and Oakland to round out the weekend. Leading the ‘Roos this season will be their lone senior, Chelsea Horner. The Overland Park, Kan., native returns for her fourth season in the Blue & Gold where she has produced 16 singles wins, the sixth most in school history and 17 doubles wins, one behind teammate Jillian Yakominich for the most in school history. Last season, Horner recorded the fourth

most doubles wins in school history (10) while her six wins from the No. 3 line was tied for the most in UMKC history. “We only have one senior in Chelsea and she will bring leadership and drive to a young team,” Hale said. Eva Dalvai and Laura Bouet return to Kansas City for their sophomore seasons after competing at the No. 1 and No. 2 spots for the ‘Roos in 2010. Dalvai spent most of the year at the top line for the ‘Roos where her 11 singles wins were the third most in a single season in UMKC history, while her nine wins at No. 1 were tied for the second most in school history. The Strasbourg, Fance native’s, nine doubles wins, meanwhile, rank as the seventh most in a single season at UMKC and helped her to a spot on the allSummit League Team. Bouet, meanwhile, had perhaps the best season of any individual in school history after posting a schoolrecord 18 singles wins in a single season

as a freshman, while moving into fourth place on the career wins list. Twice, the Gap, France native was named Summit League Player of the Week and was placed on the all-Summit League team. “Eva and Laura will bring a years experience under their belt,” Hale said. “They had an outstanding season last year and we hope they will hit the ground running this year.” Wichita, Kan., natives Jessica Ball, Jillian Yakominich and Suzan Lisenby return to the ‘Roos after placing their names in the record books in 2010. Ball registered 10 doubles wins as a sophomore, tied for the fourth most in school history, while moving into seventh place all-time with 13 career doubles wins. The junior’s nine wins at No. 3 doubles with partner Yakominich, meanwhile, were the most in UMKC history. Along with her nine doubles wins at the No. 3 line with Ball,Yakominich also posted 12 singles wins last season, the second most in school history. The junior now has 18 career singles wins, the fourth most in UMKC history. Her 11 doubles wins a season ago were tied for the most in a single season in school history and helped her become the third member of the 2010 squad to earn a place on the all-Summit League Team. As for Lisenby, the sophomore also posted 11 doubles wins in her first season as a ‘Roo, tying Yakominich and Bouet

for the most in school history, while her 11 singles wins were the third most all-time in school history. Her seven wins from the No. 4 line were also the most in school history and helped her to Summit League Player of the Week honors. “The Wichita girls will all play major roles this season and help in both singles and doubles,” coach Hale said. “Jessica, Jillian and Susan will have a huge impact on our team this year. Gabriella Pintos is the one newcomer on this year’s squad. The freshman joins the squad out of Coatzacoalcos, Mexico, where she is the No. 358 ranked player in the country. “Our lone freshman Gabriella, has some incredible potential to be our power player,” coach Hale said. “She is very strong and likes to hit it hard!” With the bulk of the roster returning from last year’s squad and the solid mix of upper and lower classmen, the ‘Roos should be poised to take the next step in its quest for a Summit League Championship.

Head Coach • NW Missouri St., ‘90 • Fourth Season • 32-63, 17-33

Dante Cipulli

Assistant Coach • Southwest Baptist, ‘05 • Third Season Dante Cipulli is entering his third season as an assistant coach with the UMKC tennis program.

Kendell Hale is entering his fourth season as the head coach of the UMKC men’s and women’s tennis program. Overall, the 2010-11 season will be Hale’s 17th as a collegiate head coach, where he has compiled a 289-194 overall record.

Cipulli initially joined the program during the 2007-08 school year, where he coached four ‘Roos to allleague recognition. After stepping away from the program to venture into the business world in 2008-09, Cipulli rejoined the coaching staff in 2009-10, where he coached the men’s (17) and women’s teams (10) to school record victory totals. Cipulli also coached seven all-Summit League student-athletes, which included 2010 Summit League Player of the Year Patrick Smith.

Hale has orchestrated an amazing turnaround with the men’s and women’s tennis programs since joining the department in 2008. He has guided both the men’s and women’s squads to school-record win totals and has produced one Summit League regular season title, one Summit League Tournament crown and one NCAA Tournament appearance. He was also selected at the 2009 USPTA Missouri Valley College Coach of the Year. In three seasons at the helm, Hale has coached eight first team all-league selections and a pair of second team all-league honorees on the men’s side and six all-league selections (four first/two second) on the women’s side. He’s also coached one Summit League Player of the Year and one Summit League Newcomer of the Year.

During his first stint with the Kangaroos, Cipulli helped guide the men’s team to a 6-9 overall record and a 4-2 mark in Summit League play and the women’s squad to a 3-12 overall and a 3-5 league record. One of the women’s victories - a 7-0 win over Centenary - snapped the program’s 58-match losing streak.

During the 2010 season, Hale led the men’s team to a 17-7 overall record, which included a school record 11-match winning streak. The 17 victories were the most in a single season in the record books. The squad finished a perfect 6-0 in league play during the regular season without dropping a single team point, as it claimed The Summit League regular season title. The ‘Roos advanced to the league tournament final for the second straight year before being upset in the final to third-seeded Oral Roberts.

Prior to coming to UMKC, Cipulli served as a graduate assistant at his alma mater, Southwest Baptist, for two seasons from 2005-07. Before joining the coaching ranks, Cipulli played for the Bearcats for three seasons from 2002-05. During his that time, he was twice named an ITA All-American, won two MIAA Most Valuable Player awards, and was a two-time unanimous all-MIAA First Team selection. Additionally, he finished his career with a school record 110 singles victories.

Hale’s student-athletes produced unprecedented success on the court, as senior Patrick Smith was named The Summit League Player of the Year. Smith along with Bret Berryman, Serge Ristivojevic and Gustavo Guerin also received all-Summit League honors. Ristivojevic broke the school record for single season singles victories (18), while Smith and Berryman set the single season doubles mark (18).

As a senior, Cipulli won the ITA NCAA Division II Singles National Championship and the Small Colleges Super Bowl Championship. With that win, he advanced to the NCAA Division I National Championships, where he posted a 2-2 record. He also guided SBU to three straight MIAA Championship and NCAA Tournament appearances.

In 2009, Hale guided the men’s squad to a 14-7 overall record and a 5-1 mark in Summit League play. After finishing as the regular season runner-up, Hale led UMKC to a Summit League Tournament title and an NCAA Tournament berth with a tight 4-2 victory over top-seeded Oral Roberts. The tournament final win gave the ‘Roos their 14th victory of the season, which tied the then school record for single season victories. A trio of players earned all-league honors, while Bret Berryman was tabbed The Summit League Newcomer of the Year. Under Hale’s guidance, Patrick Smith closed out the 2009 season with six straight victories to give him a total of 14 singles wins on the year. The 14 victories were tied for the second most wins in the single season record books. Hale also led the ‘Roos to unprecedented success at the Wilson/ITA Central Region Championships, as he coached players to the Round of 16 for the first time in school history. On the women’s side, Hale has made great strides with the women’s program in three seasons. In 2010, Hale guided the ‘Roos to a school record 10 victories and a 6-2 mark in Summit League play. UMKC finished third in the regular season standings to qualify for the league tournament for the first time since only the top four teams advanced. A trio of studentathletes - Laura Bouet, Eva Dalvai and Jillian Yakominich - each earned all-Summit League honors. In 2009, UMKC posted five wins and finished with a 4-4 mark in Summit League play. The five victories were the most for the program since the 1999-00 season, while the four league victories were the most in a single season in school history. In Hale’s first season in 2008, he led the ‘Roos to three victories, one of which was a 7-0 triumph over Centenary that snapped the program’s 58-match losing streak.

As a result, Cipulli was named the ITA Division II National Player of the Year, the ITA Regional Player of the Year, the ITA Division II Senior Player of the Year, and he was voted an ITA All-Star. In Feb. 2005, the state of Missouri recognized Cipulli for his tennis accomplishments, as he was awarded the Missouri Sports Achievement Award for winning his national championship. In 2003-04, Cipulli was the national runner-up in singles, and he finished third in the country in doubles. He finished the year ranked No. 2 in the nation in singles and No. 22 in doubles. During his first season as SBU, he was named the North Central Rookie of the Year, as he was ranked 35th in the nation in singles. Cipulli, a native of Tucuman, Argentina, graduated from Southwest Baptist with an undergraduate degree in business administration/international business in 2005. He then went on to earn his MBA from SBU in the summer of 2007.

The Kangaroos also have excelled in the classroom under Hale’s watch. The men’s team earned ITA all-Academic Team honors in 2008 and the women’s squad received the distinction in both 2008 and 2009. Additionally, five student-athletes were selected as ITA Scholar Athletes, 29 were named to The Summit League Winter/Spring Academic all-League team and 13 were Commissioner’s List of Academic Excellence honorees. Prior to becoming a Kangaroo, Hale spent 13 seasons as the head coach at Rockhurst University, where he guided the Hawks to nine NCAA Tournament appearances in 10 years as an NCAA Division II university. He led Rockhurst to the Midwest Region Championships from 1995-97, and he coached six top-30 Division II student-athletes. His team finished the 1997 season as the 12th ranked team in the nation in the NAIA, which led to him being named the NAIA Midwest Region Coach of the Year.

Zach Frisch

Hale has been honored at every level since joining the coaching profession. He is the only coach to be named the USPTA College Coach of the Year five times (2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2009), and he has been selected as the Wilson/ITA Coach of the Year on three occasions (2001, 2002, 2007). In 2003, Hale was also selected as the NCAA Central Region Coach of the Year. Hale also was selected as the USPTA Coach of the Year in 2001, the USPTA Missouri Club Professional of the Year in 1998, and he was the USA Tennis Coordinator for Kansas City in 1997. Not only did Hale have success on the court, but he also was successful in the classroom as well, as his teams at Rockhurst captured eight Team Academic all-America awards. In addition to his duties with the Hawks, Hale has served as the tennis director at Oakwood Country Club since 2004. From 1997-99, he was the head tennis professional at the Plaza Tennis Center, where the venue was named the Facility of the Year in 1998. Before going to the PTC, Hale served as the head assistant tennis professional/junior coordinator at Kansas City Country Club from 1991-95.

Assistant Coach Western Illinois, ‘10 First Season

Hale has also been a United States Professional Tennis Association board member for 10 years, and he is the USPTA tester for the Kansas City region. Hale’s playing career began at Paris Junior College in Paris, Texas, where he was ranked 43rd in the NJCAA national rankings. After a successful two-year stint, Hale played two seasons at Northwest Missouri State, where he helped the Bearcats to a No. 12 ranking in the NCAA Division II poll. He was the only NWMS player to win a MIAA conference title in 1990 and during that same year, he was the conference doubles runner-up.

The Evolution of the Kangaroo

W

hen choosing a mascot, the discussion usually starts with three main categories - predatory animals, historical or regional figures, or humans that represent power and strength - and ends with a collection of the usual suspects. Thanks to Walt Disney, The Kansas City Star and the Kansas City Zoo, UMKC has a very unique mascot, but how exactly does the Kangaroo fit? As it turns out, quite well. In 1936, the issue of a mascot was first brought up by the editors of The University - the campus newspaper for Kansas City University. Although there were no organized intercollegiate athletics teams at the time, the newspaper staff felt that KCU’s debate team - and more importantly the school itself - deserved a unique identity. During that same year, the Kansas City Zoo purchased a pair of baby Kangaroos, and The Kansas City Star lit the fire with an article titled “Kangaroo May Go To KCU ... Student Editors Believe University Should Have A Symbol.” The first Others on campus were not as enthusiastic. The editors of The Crataegus - the University’s yearbook - thought that a Kangaroo incarnation of Kasey was not an appropriate symbol for KCU. A proposed feature page Kangaroo in the 1936-37 yearbook for the Kangaroo emblem was deleted, was inked by Marceline, sparking a tremendous amount of debate. Mo., native Walt Disney,

As the debate wore on, interest from the campus community began and featured to wane. It looked as if KCU would not adopt a mascot after all. But the KCU mascot in 1937, two events would combine to indelibly link the Kangaroo alongside a with the University and give the mascot a name.

somewhat more famous rodent.

During the student government elections in the spring semester, the CO-OP Party adopted the Kangaroo as its official mascot, naming him Kasey. With a landslide victory in April behind the slogan “Kasey fits KC”, the first part of the foundation was laid. During the same month the first issue of KCU’s humor magazine - The Kangaroo - was published, with a kangaroo gracing the cover. Six months later, a kangaroo made another appearance on the cover of The Kangaroo, and although it wasn’t a solo appearance, it put a quick end to the debate over whether a kangaroo was an appropriate mascot for KCU. Missouri native and famed cartoonist Walt Disney provided the artwork for the cover illustration, which featured Mickey Mouse shaking hands with Kasey Kangaroo. In a matter of a few years, The Kangaroo thrived while The Crataegus floundered, with the latter eventually folding. The Kangaroo became the University’s yearbook and the Kangaroo became the official mascot of Kansas City University. Kasey has undergone several changes over the years, with the most recent metamorphosis led by UMKC Director of Athletics Tim Hall. With the help of local advertising agency Bernstein-Rein, UMKC developed a set of new athletics marks in the spring of 2008. After a community vote, the new Kangaroo logo was unveiled in May. With its aggressive snarl, the new Kangaroo capitalizes on UMKC’s mission to be an outstanding urban university while keeping mindful of the traditions established in 1937.

Director of Athletics Tim Hall

TIM HALL

Director of Athletics

T

im Hall was named the UMKC Director of Athletics on Feb. 14, 2007. In this role, he serves as a member of the Chancellor’s executive cabinet, and is responsible for leading the strategic direction in growing the university’s intercollegiate athletics program.

In Hall’s first three full years in Kansas City, UMKC has enjoyed a record amount of success on the fields of competition, in the classroom, and in the Kansas City community. These successes were reinforced by the NCAA in 2009, as UMKC Athletics received full NCAA certification without condition. The certification showed that the University is operating its athletics program in substantial conformity with operating principles adopted by the NCAA Division I membership and is valid for the next 10 years. From an athletics standpoint, Hall led the ‘Roos to their most successful year since 2000 in 2008-09 and the ‘Roos continued excelling in 2009-10. UMKC claimed a pair of Summit League titles in men’s soccer and men’s tennis, while also earning the runner-up nod in both men’s and women’s golf, which led to a record 2009 finish in the annual Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup. During the 2010 campaign, the men’s tennis team won The Summit League regular season title and the men’s golf program was the league runner-up. This helped the men’s teams finish fourth in the Dr. William Steinbrecher Men’s All Sports Award standings, the best showing since 2001-02. Overall, the ‘Roos moved up to sixth place in the Commissioner’s Cup standings, which was the highest finish since 2006-07. In the classroom, the department posted a 3.10 cumulative grade point as of the spring 2010 semester and eight programs finished with at least a 3.0 GPA. Additionally, UMKC finished with a 958.7 APR average and the volleyball team received the NCAA public recognition award. Internally, Hall has been hard at work to align the department with peer institutions and the NCAA. He restructured the rules compliance office to be more in line with NCAA rules and the Student-Athlete Support Services Office to better assist and prepare Kangaroo studentathletes. He also continues to work with new UMKC Chancellor Leo Morton to craft the athletics’ strategic plan in concert with the University’s new strategic goals. From a fund raising standpoint, Kangaroo Athletics have never been better. In 2008, UMKC received a $5 million pledge from the Stanley H. Durwood Foundation, the largest gift in Athletics’ and the fourth-largest gift in University history. The resulting Stanley H. Durwood Soccer Stadium and Recreational Field opened in August 2009 and is among the premier soccer facilities in the Midwest region. Additional facility improvements have included revamped locker rooms and lounges for men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball and the retro-fitting of Old Swinney Gymnasium, which provides the basketball and volleyball programs with a first-class practice facility. The project was funded through $500,000 of private support. Hall also was instrumental in the renovation of the Swinney Recreation Center with the installation of new seatback bleachers and new scoreboards, which enhances the venue for the men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball programs. The renovation allows the men’s basketball squad to move its games back on campus full-time for the 2010-11 season. Hall is also in the midst of a partnership with the Kansas City Parks Department to build a sports complex that will house both indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a 200-meter indoor track and a softball field. On an annual basis, the Kangaroo Athletics Scholarship Fund, which was rebranded prior to the 2007-08 school year, has posted three straight years of 50 percent growth, while donor participation is up over 200 percent. He also increased the department’s total sponsorships and gift-in-kind assistance to over $1.5 million and cash and trade sponsorships have increased 265 percent since 2008. Additionally, Hall has increased UMKC’s external support by 45 percent over fiscal year 2009 from $1.6 to $2.4 million. Hall also has also reconnected with over 200 former ‘Roos with the former student-athlete association. In the community, Hall has been active in an effort to get more community leaders involved in the Athletics Department. Hall restructured the Athletics Foundation Board in 2009 by adding representatives from a number of Kansas City-based businesses such as Cerner, Kansas City Southern Railways, Lathrop Gage LLC, and Mark One Electric. New partnerships have come quickly to Kangaroo Athletics, including television (Niles Media Group) and radio (810 WHB) agreements that ensure a continued presence within the Kansas City region. Renowned local advertising firm Bernstein-Rein produced a redesigned athletics logo and graphics set, while additional contractual agreements have also been signed with adidas, Truman Medical Cen-

ters, Pepsi, T-Mobile and JumpTV to better serve the department’s student-athletes. Hall continues to bring leadership to UMKC and The Summit League. In addition to his role on the Chancellor’s Executive Cabinet, Hall serves on The Summit League Joint Council leadership committee and sits on the league’s men’s basketball scheduling committee and the men’s and women’s soccer coaches committees. Additionally, Hall is also in the second of a three-year term on the NACDA Division 1-AAA Executive Committee and serves on the NCAA volleyball rules committee. Hall came to Kansas City after serving as the Associate Athletics Director for Development at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, from 200307. While at KSU, he was a member of the athletics senior administrative staff, working in all phases of departmental management including game and personnel contracts, scheduling, budget, policy and strategic planning. In this role, Hall created and implemented a comprehensive restructuring of the athletic advancement unit, resulting in the creation of the Office of Athletic Advancement. He increased fundraising by more than 33 percent, helped secure the largest gift to date in the history of KSU athletics, a $1.53 million gift for the baseball stadium renovation, and raised more than $16.1 million. Prior to moving back to Ohio, Hall worked at Eastern Kentucky University from 2000-03. Hall began work as the collegiate Director for Development in 2000 before being promoted to the Director of Major Gifts and Special Projects in 2001. In this capacity, he raised over $4.6 million for the university, including $1.3 million for athletics. Hall also served as the Assistant Director of Development at Saint Xavier University in Chicago from September 1999 through October 2000. At Saint Xavier, Hall managed fundraising efforts for a $13 million Athletic and Convention Center. He also managed the President’s Club, and developed and implemented the Cougar Club, an athletics affinity group. Before moving to Chicago, Hall worked at Youngstown State University as an Assistant Director of Athletic Development from 1997-99. In this role, he helped the university complete its successful $26 million capital campaign. Hall also began his collegiate career at YSU, serving in the school’s athletic marketing and promotions office. Hall earned his bachelor’s degree in sports administration from the University of Toledo in 1994. He then received his master’s degree in sports administration from Kent State University in 1998. Hall and his wife, Beth, have four children, Aidan, Aislin, Donovan and Landon, and they reside in Kansas City, Mo.

Along with providing each student-athlete their own individual locker space, the facility also features a player’s lounge that includes leather couches and a big screen television. In addition, the lounge is equipped with a computer workstation with a high-speed internet connection.

Old Swinney

Original Old Swinney Gymnasium, affectionately known as “Old Swinney”, which is part of the Swinney Recreation Center received a face lift in the summer of 2010. The renovation transforms the Old Swinney Gymnasium into a modern, collegiate practice facility that will better serve the student body, faculty and staff members and community members, as well as provide outstanding training opportunities for ‘Roo student-athletes. The $500,000 renovation plan calls for new basketball/volleyball court flooring and basketball standards and volleyball nets to be installed in the existing facility. The current skylights in the building will also be altered, which will allow for modified lighting to be put into place. The entire Old Swinney interior will be updated and scoreboards will be installed.

Dutton Brookfield Strength and Conditioning Center The Dutton Brookfield Strength and Conditioning Center at UMKC’s Swinney Recreation Center was officially dedicated on Sept. 22, 2004. Led by Director of Strength, Conditioning and Sports Enhancement Trumain Carroll, the Brookfield Center is designed to help enhance UMKC student-athletes’ levels of performance while significantly reducing the chances for injuries. The benefit of performing structured strength and power training throughout the entire year will give student-athletes the opportunity to reach new levels of physical development. The center contains free weights, plus platforms, benches and machines and the latest cardiovascular equipment. In the summer of 2006, the area purchased the latest Sports Motion system to give student-athletes the video analysis needed to improve their techniques.

he Kangaroo Athletics Scholarship Fund (KASF) supports the studentathletes of UMKC through the offsetting of expenses such as scholarships, travel, recruiting, and equipment. As costs continue to rise, support for our student-athletes through the KASF becomes more crucial as we continue to build an elite Summit League athletics department. For the 2010-11 academic year, student-athlete scholarship expenses are expected to include: • Tuition (out-of-state): $17,692 • Room and Board: $10,130 • Tuition (in-state): $6,876 • Books and Fees: $1,612 In addition, over the past year it has become extremely difficult for budgets to keep pace with rising travel and food costs. While athletics must be vigilant in cost containment, we must continue to provide for the best possible student-athlete experience. That is where the KASF donors can play such a tremendous role. Donors to the KASF enjoy a number of benefits based on their donor level, including Priority Seating, access to the pre-game Kangaroo Club hospitality parties at men’s basketball games, invitations to a number of events, complimentary media guides and gifts, and exclusive opportunities to meet the studentathletes, staff, coaches, and University leadership.

THE SUMMIT LEAGUE As The Summit League concludes its third decade as an NCAA Division I athletics conference, the ascending level of performance among the 10 member institutions and over 3,000 student-athletes in 19 championship sports continues. Now in its 29th year, The Summit League is in the midst of a renaissance, both on the playing eld and in the classroom. During the 2009-10 academic year, the League produced a national champion, 11 All-Americans, eight Academic All-Americans and 33 IUPUI’s Chen Ni became The Summit Academic All-District honorees. League’s rst NCAA female national IUPUI’s Chen Ni made history champion, winning the women’s platform at the NCAA Swimming & Diving dive at the 2010 NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships and highlighted Championships. the individual accomplishments in 2009-10. The sophomore became The Summit League’s rst female national champion, and fth NCAA titlist overall, when she nished rst in the platform dive. Also garnering national recognition was Oakland men’s basketball player Keith Benson, who received The Summit League’s rst national individual award for basketball performance when he was named the Lou Henson Award winner as the nation’s Mid-Major Player of the Year. The level of performance in men’s basketball continued to rise as The Summit League was one of just six leagues outside of the “power six” conferences to have both of its championship game participants compete with RPI ratings in the top 85. The Summit League had two teams post 25-win seasons, making it one of seven leagues outside of the “power six” and one of 12 overall in Division I to make that claim. Summit League champion Oakland set new standards for season League victories (17), winning percentage (.944) and tied the mark for consecutive League wins (16). The Summit League’s Basketball Championship extended its visibility in 2010, as for the rst time in history all 14 men’s and women’s tournament games were televised, including all seven men’s contests with a national reach via an ESPN platform. Overall attendance in Sioux Falls, S.D., was the second-highest on record and a new women’s quarternal session mark was set with 5,384 spectators. Several other sports also saw records fall during the 2009-10 campaign. In volleyball, North Dakota State set a new mark with its 37th consecutive League win en route to its second straight undefeated season. Additionally, the League set standards for postseason participation in both track & eld, where an all-time best 50 athletes qualied for the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Preliminary Rounds, and women’s basketball, where three teams advanced to postseason play. Academically, six Summit League teams were bestowed with the NCAA Public Recognition Award, an honor given to teams that have a Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR) in the top 10 percent of all squads in their respective sports. IPFW led with three teams on the list, including men’s cross country, women’s golf and volleyball, while another trio of teams, UMKC volleyball, North Dakota State women’s golf and Oakland women’s golf, also received accolades. The national reach of The Summit League continues to expand with member institutions selected as hosts for NCAA Championship events, beginning with UMKC serving as a co-host for the 2010 NCAA Volleyball Championship. IUPUI will serve as a co-host for the 2011 Women’s Final Four and the 2015 Men’s Final Four and be the host for both the 2013 and 2017 NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships. League members were selected for several NCAA preliminary competitions with Oakland hosting the 2010 Cross Country Great Lakes Regional and 2013 Men’s Basketball First and

The Summit League

Second Rounds and IUPUI serving as co-host for one of the four 2013 Men’s Basketball Regionals. Originally formed in 1982 as the Association of Mid-Continent Universities and later known as the Mid-Continent Conference, The Summit League is in its fourth year of a rebranding that followed its 25th anniversary and coincided with the Summit Plan, a strategic plan that places a renewed emphasis on improving the academic and athletic performances of all league student-athletes. Included in the plan was the league’s new name, the creation of a new image and the addition of three member institutions. The Summit League has a combined enrollment of over 125,000 at 10 member institutions: Centenary College of Louisiana, IPFW (Indiana University-Purdue University-Fort Wayne), IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis), UMKC (University of Missouri-Kansas City), North Dakota State University, Oakland University, Oral Roberts University, South Dakota State University, Southern Utah University and Western Illinois University. In April 2009, the University of South Dakota accepted an invitation to join the league with full membership beginning in 201112 and currently serves as an associate member for swimming and diving. The League has one additional associate member in Eastern Illinois University, which currently competes in swimming and diving and will join in men’s soccer in 2011. These member institutions pride themselves on providing quality athletic, academic and social experiences for their student-athletes. Since its inception in 1982, The Summit League has had several transcendent moments on the national stage. In 1986, Cleveland State upset third-seeded Indiana in the rst round of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament on its way to a berth in the Sweet 16. A decade later, Valparaiso captured the nation’s attention when Bryce Drew hit “the shot” to defeat No. 4 seed Mississippi in an NCAA rst-round game and spark its Sweet 16 run. More recently, Oral Roberts’ baseball program nished the 2004 campaign with a national-ranking and became the rst Summit League school to reach an NCAA Super Regional in 2006. Three years later, North Dakota State’s 2009 softball team became the rst League member to win an NCAA regional and advance to the Super Regional round. During the 2008-09 basketball season, South Dakota State’s women’s team was nationally-ranked throughout the year and capped its season with an NCAA Tournament rst round victory. The League has produced ve NCAA champions, four Olympic athletes and several All-Americans in the sports of track and eld, swimming and diving and cross country. Numerous professionals and several draft choices have come directly from The Summit League, including three Major League Baseball rst round picks, a pair of NBA rst rounders and one WNBA selection. Former Summit Leaguers Kevin Duckworth (NBA) and Kevin Seitzer (MLB) each were two-time all-stars during their professional careers. Recent and historical success coupled with an increased growth among its membership base gives The Summit League a promising future on the landscape of college athletics.

Kansas City

Cowtown Shmowtown Although Kansas City’s reputation outside the Midwest may be that of an agricultural cowtown, its residents know the truth. UMKC is in the middle of it all, with history, culture and entertainment options on all sides and within just a short walk or drive. Here’s just a few of the options that students at UMKC have at their disposal. The Legends at Village West boasts 1.1 million square feet of retail space and is home to more than 100 shops and restaurants. This northern shopping mecca is also located by the Kansas Speedway and Community America Ballpark. The Kansas Speedway hosts major league racing events like NASCAR’s Nextel and Busch series and Indy Racing League. Community America Ballpark is home to the Kansas City T-Bones and serves as the temporary site for the Kansas City Wizards. The Wizards are currently constructing a new $160 million state-of-the-art stadium at Legends.

Located within a short walk from the Volker Campus, The NelsonAtkins Museum of Art includes works of art from some of the great masters. The lawn of The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art resembles a badminton court with 18-ft.-tall sculptures, titled “Shuttlecocks.”

The Country Club Plaza offers 14 blocks of shopping amid beautiful Spanish architecture, fountains and statues. More than 80 miles of lights outline every building, dome and tower on the Country Club Plaza each holiday season. The Plaza is within a short walking distance from the Volker Campus. Kansas City is known as the City of Fountains with more than 200 fountains on the Plaza and in downtown KC.


Kansas City The $850 million Power & Light District is the largest new development project in the Midwest. Just steps from the Convention Center and a short drive from the Volker Campus, the Power & Light District features eight blocks of dining, nightlife and entertainment venues. Located next to the Power & Light District, the Sprint Center opened in downtown Kansas City in October 2007. The Sprint Center is a state-of-the-art, 18,500-seat arena offering marquee concerts and sporting events. Located in the Sprint Center, the College Basketball Experience celebrates college basketball by placing visitors in electrifying, game-like situations. Home to the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame as well, UMKC had the honor of opening the CBE and held its first practice of the 2007-08 season.

Municipal Auditorium has hosted more NCAA Tournament games and more Final Fours than any other venue in the country. The UMKC men’s and women’s basketball teams will also play a doubleheader at this historical venue during the 2010-11 season.

Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Kansas City Chiefs, seats more than 79,000 on game day. The Kansas City Royals play in Kauffman Stadium, which just wrapped up a $250 million renovation. Kauffman Stadium’s unique features include a 322-foot-wide water spectacular. The water spectacular is the largest privately funded fountain in the world. Both teams play at the Truman Sports Complex.

The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum chronicles the history and heroes of the Negro Leagues from their founding after the Civil War to their demise in the 1960s. The first professional Negro Leagues were founded in Kansas City in 1920, just two blocks from the museum.


Kangaroos Out In The Community

A

s a member of the Kansas City community, the UMKC Athletics Department takes great pride in giving back to its neighbors and friends. The Kangaroos outdid themselves during the 2009-10 school year by hosting a plethora of successful events and volunteering their time. Here is a short list of the community service projects that UMKC teams and student-athletes took part in: ► The UMKC Athletics Department assisted students by helping them move their

personal belongings into their new homes as a part of Student Move-In Day 2009. Student-athletes, coaches and administrators from all 16 athletics teams helped their fellow students move into the Oak Street Residence Hall.

► UMKC men’s basketball head coach Matt Brown coached barefoot against Western

Illinois back in January in an effort to collect shoes for the non-profit organization Samaritan’s Feet. Over the past two basketball seasons, UMKC supporters have brought in over 150 pairs of kid shoes for the cause. Coach Brown joined 300 basketball coaches from across the country teaming up to support this initiative.

► UMKC teamed up with The Summit League during the 2009-10 season and participated in The Summit League’s Students Team Up To Fight Hunger (STUFH). The league designated 20 “Food Fight” games during the basketball season as part of a league-wide food drive initiative. The Kangaroos hosted “White Out” night where fans donned white t-shirts and donated over 900 pounds of food! ► UMKC administrators, staff members and student-athletes all partcipated in UMKC’s “Walk A Mile In Her Shoes” event on campus. The event was an International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault and Gender Violence. ► The volleyball, women’s basketball and softball teams all participated in Think Pink events to raise breast cancer awareness. The volleyball team wore pink shoelaces, while the women’s basketball joined over 700 other institutions in taking part in the WBCA “Think Pink” week. Softball paired up with Summit League foe South Dakota State in their ongoing tradition, donning commemorative pink uniforms for the final game of the league series between the teams. The softball team also competed in the Missouri Coaches Against Cancer Tournament.
