uilt in 1960, the Mott Athletics Center (formerly Mott Gym) is home to Cal Poly men’s and women’s basketball, wrestling and volleyball. In the fall of 1998, the MAC was upgraded with chairback seats replacing the original wooden bleachers. New seats were installed behind both backboards in 1998, giving the MAC an arena feel to it. A new floor was installed in 2011 and repainted in the summer of 2014. Videoboards were installed prior to the 2014-15 basketball season. Named after Robert A. Mott, a physical education faculty member and department head from 1946-78, the MAC houses the athletic department offices and training and strength and conditioning rooms. While working at Cal Poly, Mott also was the coach of the Mustangs baseball and men’s basketball teams before he was named P.E. Department head after World War II. Cal Poly hosted the 1969 NCAA Division II National Wrestling Championships, capturing the second of seven straight team titles. The 1968-69 team (pictured at right) was led by national champions Terry Hall, John Woods, Ken Bos and Tom Kline. In 2005, the MAC hosted the Pac-12 Wrestling Championships. Teams, officials and fans from Arizona State, Boise State, Oregon, UC Davis, Cal Poly, Oregon State, Bakersfield, Cal State Fullerton, Stanford and Portland State flocked to the MAC with the total attendance for the two-day event reaching 7,738. The Mustangs finished the meet in fourth place and crowned one individual champion, Vic Moreno at 125 pounds. In 1995, the Golden State Warriors held their preseason camp in the MAC. Chris Mullin, Latrell Sprewell, B.J. Armstrong and No. 1 pick Joe Smith put on a show during an open practice to the public, drawing a standing-room-only crowd of over 4,000. Two years later, the Sacramento Kings conducted their camp at Cal Poly, opening the doors to the public for an intrasquad scrimmage to climax the one-week camp. The MAC has been home to numerous NCAA playoffs (most recently the first and second rounds of the 2006 NCAA Women’s Volleyball Championship with sellout crowds) and championships over the years, as well as hosting various concerts, exhibitions and sporting events. Names like Eddie Money, The Pretenders, The Doors, Ike and Tina Turner, the Los Angeles Lakers and Bill Cosby are just a few of the names that have performed inside the Mott Athletics Center. In 1980, the men’s basketball team hosted New Hampshire College in a Division II NCAA Championship quarterfinal. The 1998-99 season marked the first nationally televised game at the MAC as ESPN2 carried the Cal Poly vs. Idaho game. Other men’s basketball games have been televised by Fox Sports and KSBY-TV before capacity crowds.

2017-18 Coaching Staff

Jon Sioredas, Head Coach, Second Season sioredas File

• Head coach at Grand Canyon for two seasons • Assistant coach at Chattanooga for two seasons • Assistant coach at Old Dominion for six seasons • Has coached five Top-25 teams, four NCAA  All-Americans, 40 national qualifiers, 12 Academic All-Americans • NCAA All-American in 2005 at Chattanooga • Two-time Southern Conference champion • 181-13 record at Great Bridge (Va.) High School

Jon Sioredas begins his second season as head wrestling coach at Cal Poly. "I am honored and excited to lead a program with such rich tradition," Sioredas said. "I would especially like to thank Don Oberhelman and the Cal Poly Athletic Department for giving me this opportunity. "Our expectations at Cal Poly are simple: to graduate with a meaningful degree, have a reputation of excellence on campus and in the community, and to produce NCAA All-Americans and national champions," Sioredas added. Sioredas (suh-REE-duss) brings to Cal Poly an extensive background of collegiate coaching experience and was also an NCAA Division I AllAmerican at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. In his first year at the helm at Cal Poly, the Mustangs won more dual meets than in the previous five years, including wins over Indiana and West Virginia. The program also received its first team trophy at the Reno Tournament of Champions in 10 years. They qualified a pair of grapplers to the NCAA Championships in St. Louis, where Colt Shorts knocked off the No. 6-ranked wrestler in the country. The Mustangs also excelled in the classroom. The team GPA is at a four-year high and the program received a public recognition award from the NCAA for being in the top 10 percent in the country with its Academic Progress Rate (APR). APR is a timely assessment of academic success at colleges and universities that is used to hold institutions accountable for the academic progress of their student-athletes.

Before Cal Poly, Sioredas spent two seasons as the head wrestling coach at Grand Canyon in Phoenix, Ariz. He was brought to GCU to guide the program through the transition from Division II to Division I. During this process, Sioredas helped build the depth across all weights to the standards of a Division I championship program by signing a nationally recognized recruiting class and three top100 recruits. He was also able to pick up dual meet victories over Division I programs and place three

All-Americans at the National Collegiate Open with his predominantly freshmen team. Sioredas was an assistant coach at Chattanooga for two seasons. UTC finished the 2013-14 dual season ranked in the national top 25, at one point ranking as high as No. 19. The Mocs also captured the regular-season conference title, the conference tournament title, and qualified five for the NCAA tournament in Oklahoma City, with two seeded in the top 10.

Prior to his two seasons in Chattanooga, Sioredas spent six seasons as an assistant coach at Old Dominion. He helped guide the Monarchs to the top 25 in dual meet rankings four of his six years, with four All-Americans and an NCAA finalist. ODU also had 10 NWCA All-Academic honors, as well as being named top 10 in the nation in grade-point average during his tenure. During his 11 years of coaching -- three as a head coach and eight as an assistant -- Sioredas has coached five top-25 teams, one NCAA Division I national finalist, four NCAA All-Americans, 40 national qualifiers, 12 Academic All-Americans and helped with six top-20 recruiting classes. An All-American while competing at Chattanooga, Sioredas finished fifth in the 165pound weight class in the 2005 NCAA Division I Championships. He was a two-time Southern Conference Champion and 2005 SoCon Wrestler of the Year and Tournament MVP. Sioredas, recently inducted into the Tennessee at Chattanooga Athletics Hall of Fame, graduated from UTC in 2005 with a degree in sociology and anthropology. He earned his master's degree in business administration from Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Florida, in 2009. A native of Chesapeake, VA, and a 2000 Great Bridge High School graduate, Sioredas was a Virginia state champion, All-American and national champion. He amassed a 181-13 career prep record, becoming the fourth winningest wrestler in Virginia high school history. Sioredas and his wife, Michele, reside in San Luis Obispo with their son, Braden.

UTC was also in the top 15 twice in team GPA during Hatcher's tenure. While on the Chattanooga staff, Hatcher was also the director of the Chattanooga Wrestling Club. The CWC produced 30 state champions, 60 state place winners and 10 All-Americans in that time. Hatcher has also spent five years as the Director of Olympic Regional Training Centers in both Tennessee and Arizona. In his time as director, he

"We are excited to see where we stand after a hard offseason of training," said Sioredas. "This year's team has a chip on its shoulder and something to prove and we love that mentality." Heading the list of returnees is senior 141-pounder Colton Schilling, a third-place finisher at the Pac-12 Championship and a national qualifier for the first time. A fifth-year senior, Schilling posted a 13-11 record a year ago and enters his final season as a Mustang with a 5939 career mark. "His leadership will be important to our team's overall progress this season," said Sioredas. Other top returnees for the Mustangs include 285-pounder Spencer Empey Spencer Empey enters his senior season (17-16 a year ago, including an 8-8 with 38 wins after posting 17-16 record mark in duals), with a pair of falls a year ago. 197-pounder Tom Lane (14-14 last season) and 184-pounder Sohrab Movahedi (14-5 overall, 4-1 in duals a year ago).

cal poly wrestling olympians

The Cal Poly wrestling program has produced two Olympians. Pat Lovell qualified for the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo in the light heavyweight division of Greco-Roman wrestling. A Mustang wrestler in the late 1950s, Lovell has been inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, the California Wrestling Hall of Fame and, in 1989, the Cal Poly Athletics Hall of Fame. Second Mustang wrestling Olympian is Boris Novachkov, who completed in freestyle wrestling at the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Competing for his native Bulgaria, Novachkov split his two matches in his first Olympic appearance. At Carioca Arena 2, Novachkov opened his bid for the 65-kilogram (143-pound) freestyle title with a 10-7 triumph over Meysam Nasiri of Iran. Novachkov jumped to a 4-0 lead in the first period and scored a pair of misdirection takedowns in the second period en route to the win. In the Round of 16. Novachkov fell 7-4 to Franklin Gomez of Puerto Rico. Novachkov trailed 1-0 after the first period but scored two takedowns in the second period for a 4-1 lead. Gomez, however, rallied late with six unanswered points — a takedown, turn and double — for the victory. Gomez, who like Novachkov has dual citizenship and was an NCAA national champion at Michigan State, lost in the quarterfinal round, eliminating Novachkov from competition. He finished eighth in the field of 21 wrestlers. To earn his spot in the Olympics, Novachkov earned a gold medal at the Last Chance Olympic Qualifier at the Bagcilar Sports Complex in Istanbul, Turkey, in May. On the way to the gold medal, Novachkov Pat Lovell

defeated 2012 NCAA national champion and four-time NCAA All-American Frank Molinaro of Penn State 5-2 in the quarterfinals. Novachkov, who holds dual citizenship in Bulgaria and the United States, trains at the University of Illinois under former Cal Poly assistant coach Mark Perry. Novachkov was Cal Poly's first three-time NCAA Division I AllAmerican with his third-place finish in the 2012 NCAA National Championships at 141 pounds. He was runner-up in 2011 and placed seventh at 133 pounds as a sophomore in 2010. During his four years as a Mustang, Novachkov posted a 121-33 record and was a two-time Pac-12 champion in 2010 and 2011. He was also named Cal Poly's Male Athlete of the Year for the 2011-12 school year and shared the Mustang's Most Outstanding Wrestler Award. A 2007 graduate of Fremont High School in Sunnyvale, Calif., Novachkov was a two-time state champion, once at 103 pounds (2006) and once at 125 (2007). He compiled a career record of 145-21 as a prep, including a 90-3 record spanning 2006 to 2007. Novachkov also was a two-time National Freestyle champion and twotime Greco-Roman National champion. In April 2016, Chase Pami, another former Mustang wrestler, placed third at 65 kg in the United States Last Chance Olympic Qualifier held in Des Moines, Iowa. Pami was a two-time NCAA All-American. Former Cal Poly wrestling coach John Azevedo, a graduate of CSU Bakersfield, qualified for the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow. The United States boycotted those Games and Azevedo did not get a chance to compete.

Mustang Runners–up at NCAA Championships Chad Mendes, 2008

Chad Mendes completed one of the most storied seasons by a Cal Poly wrestler in the program’s history in 2008, tallying a 30-0 record before dropping a 5-2 decision to Ohio State’s J Jaggers in the NCAA Championship bout at 141 pounds. Mendes will be remembered as one of the all-time greats to walk the halls of Mott Gym. The Hanford, Calif. native recorded seven falls, eight major decisions and one technical fall in 2008. He pinned Paul Moseman of Cal State Bakersfield in just 13 seconds on Nov. 18 at the Fullerton Open and wooed a large crowd at Cal Poly by pinning the then-No. 2 ranked 141-pounder in the nation, Minnesota’s Manuel Rivera, in 1 minute, 34 seconds. At the NCAA Championships, Mendes won his first match by fall in just 34 seconds. Among his many accomplishments, Mendes won a Pac-12 title in 2008 and was also named the conference’s Wrestler of the Year. He also won tournament titles at the Michigan State Open and Fullerton Open and became the eighth wrestler in program history to navigate an undefeated dual slate. Mendes finished his career with an impressive 64-

Chase Pami, 2010

14 record. He was an All-American at 125 pounds with a sixth-place finish in 2006 before bulking up to 141 for his senior year in the 2007-08 season. On Jan. 15, 2008, Mendes became the first Cal Poly wrestler to earn a No. 1 ranking by pollsters since Scott Heaton and Rick Worel did so together in 1980. After graduating from Cal Poly in the spring of 2008, Mendes embarked upon a professional fighting career with the Palace Fighting Championship circuit. After winning all five fights, he signed with the WEC (World Extreme Cagefighting) in October 2009, posting a 4-0 mark before the WEC merged with the Ultimate Fighting Championship in 2010. Mendes is 8-4 in the UFC, 17-4 overall. His only losses were to UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo in January 2012 and October 2014, to Conor McGregor of Ireland in 2015 and to Frankie Edgar, also in 2015. His favorite technique is the wushu finger hold. “It’s a great opportunity and a great honor to be competing in the UFC,” said Mendes. “This is where I’ve always wanted to fight and it’s awesome to be a part of such a huge organization.”

Cal Poly’s Chase Pami became the sixth NCAA Division I runner-up in Mustang wrestling history in March 2010. Trying to become the third Division I national champion, Pami led 2-1 early in the first period, but eventually fell 6-4 to top-seeded and four-time NCAA All-American J.P. O'Connor of Harvard in the 157-pound final at the Qwest Center Omaha. Pami  closed out his Cal Poly career with a 29-7 record as a senior and a 100-35 career mark. Pami, the lowest seeded wrestler in the championship finals,  tried to become the first Cal Poly wrestler to capture a Division I national title since Mark DiGirolamo accomplished the feat in 1976. Tom Kline won in 1969. Pami earned his 100th career win in the semifinals with a 13-5 major decision against Justin Lister of Binghamton. Pami placed seventh in the 2009 NCAA meet. Pami also joins Kline (1968), John  Woods (1969), Cliff Hatch (1975), Montano (1983) and Chad Mendes (2008) as the only Mustangs to earn second-place finishes at the Division I nationals.

Pami captured back-to-back Pac-12 Conference titles at 157 pounds in 2008 and 2009. Pami was an NCAA qualifier all four seasons at Cal Poly. He finished 27-9 as a junior, 24-6 as a sophomore and 20-13 as a freshman. He was a two-time Nevada state champion and four-time high school All-American while wrestling at Cimarron Memorial High School in Las Vegas. He was 185-14 in his prep career. In December 2011, Pami qualified for the U.S. Olympic Team Trials, which were held in April 2012 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, Iowa. Pami placed fourth at the Trials. Pami, who has trained at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., recently finished third at the U.S. Open Freestyle Championships at 70kg and won gold at the Paris International in January 2017. He was a volunteer assistant coach at Air Force for the 2015-16 season and is serving in the came capacity at Penn this season.

In 2011, for the third time in four years, a Cal Poly wrestler captured second place in the NCAA Division I National Championships. At Philadelphia, junior Boris Novachkov, seeded third, won four matches to reach the 141-pound final, but for the second time in the 2010-11 season, he dropped a 3-2 decision to Kellen Russell of Michigan. Those were Novachkov’s only losses against 31 victories that season. Novachkov, who placed seventh at 133 pounds and earned NCAA All-American honors a year earlier, earned a 6-1 decision over Buffalo sophomore Andrew Schutt, followed by a 4-2 decision over Matthew Bonson of Lock Haven on the first day of competition at the nationals. The next day, he shut out No. 6 Andrew Alton of Penn State 2-0 in the quarterfinals and earned a 9-3 victory over second-seeded Michael Thorn of Minnesota in the semifinals. In 2012, Novachkov became the first four-time Division I national qualifier at Cal Poly and first threetime All-American, placing third at 141 pounds in St.

Louis. The two-time Pac-12 champion finished his Mustang career with a 121-23 record. A graduate of Fremont High School in Sunnyvale, Novachkov went 4-2 in the 2010 nationals, with both losses decided in overtime. Prior to the 2011 nationals, he won the Fullerton Open as well as the Midlands and placed second at the Las Vegas Invitational. Four of his wins in the 2010-11 season were by fall and Novachkov also won four matches by technical fall and five by major decision. He posted a spotless 11-0 record in dual meets and was 10-2 against nationally ranked wrestlers. Novachkov was 13-0 in duals and 34-4 overall as a senior with four falls. He placed first in the Cowboy Open and Reno Tournament of Champions. He has trained with the Titan Mercury Wrestling Club, coached by Kenny Monday and currently trains at Stanford University at the California Regional Training Center. Novachkov wrestles for his native Bulgaria, competed in the 2015 World Championships in Las Vegas and qualified for the 2016 Olympics in May 2016 (see previous page).

Victor Glover: Astronaut and Former Cal Poly Wrestler

NASA astronaut and Cal Poly engineering alumnus Victor Glover, a Mustang wrestler in the mid-1990s, spoke at the university's Spanos Theatre in July 2015. Glover discussed the benefits of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education as part of Cal Poly's Engineering Possibilities in College summer camp. The Navy lieutenant commander was among eight candidates named to NASA's 21st astronaut class in 2013. The classmates completed their initial astronaut training and are now active NASA astronauts eligible for mission assignments. Glover (B.S., General Engineering, 1999) was selected from the second largest number of applications NASA had ever received — more than 6,100. His class received a wide array of technical training at space centers around the globe in preparation for missions to low-Earth orbit, an asteroid and Mars.

Though an engineering graduate, Glover also credits his role as a member of the Cal Poly wrestling team during the 1994-95 season with helping prepare him for work as an astronaut. "Wrestling was one of the most indelible influences in my life," he said. "Someone asks me about being in the pool at the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory and doing the EVA (Extra Vehicular Activity) training. I compare it to wrestling and how you have to be able to think in 3-D and think moves ahead if you want to go from good to great. "Wrestling had just as much of an impact on me as the things I was learning in the lab or in engineering." Glover is the fourth Cal Poly alumnus to serve as an astronaut. The others include: Robert L. "Hoot" Gibson, a four-time commander on the space shuttle and an inductee in the National Aviation Hall of Fame; Gregory Chamitoff and Frederick "Rick" Sturckow.

Iceman: My Fighting Life

Chuck ‘The Iceman’ Liddell Cal Poly 1988–93

C

huck Liddell ranks as one of, if not the, most famous Cal Poly graduates in the school’s history. For two years Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell reigned as the UFC light heavyweight champion, but before that, Liddell starred in Mott Gym as a 190-pound wrestler. Recently, Liddell released a book that chronicles his life as a fighter. Iceman: My Fighting Life debuted on February 17, 2008, and spent multiple weeks on the New York Times Bestseller list.

Liddell started training for his career at the age of 12 in Santa Barbara. He was a four-year starter on the football team at San Marcos High School, and became a Division I wrestler at Cal Poly in 1988. After spending five years on the wrestling squad, Liddell would complete his degree while pursuing a career as a professional fighter, graduating in 1995 with a B.A.in business. As a graduation gift to himself, he had his iconic tattoo inked on his scalp which reads “Koei-Kan” (“prosper with happiness.”) He would then transition to mixed martial artist when he earned a purple belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under John Lewis, ultimately aiming for a career that would take his fame and fortune to a new level.

Liddell made his UFC debut in 1998 with a decision victory over Noe Hernandez. He soon established his reputation as a devastating striker with victories over Tito Ortiz, Renato Sobral and Wanderlei Silva over the next few years. On May 26, 2004, he knocked out Randy Couture in two minutes to

win the Light Heavyweight Title. He defended his titles successfully five times, all ending with either a knockout or a TKO. He surrendered his belt after losing in a matchup with Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, three years to the day of being crowned champion.

Despite his busy schedule as a fighter and a world-renowned celebrity, Liddell still takes time to remember his roots as a Cal Poly Mustang. Liddell can often be seen matside at Cal Poly matches and is an avid fan of the team. He was inducted into the Cal Poly Athletics Hall of Fame on Sept. 11, 2009.

Chuck Liddell “faces off” with Cal Poly 197-pound wrestler Ryan Smith during a practice session in 2008.

More than 20,000 students, nationally-renown courses of study and the top-ranked public master’s university in the western United States ... all 11 miles from the Pacific Ocean.

This is Cal Poly

ocated in the central California coastal town of San Luis Obispo, Cal Poly comprises one of 23 campuses in the California State University, the nation’s largest four-year undergraduate university system. Each CSU campus is given considerable freedom to develop its programs and each institution boasts its own qualities and strengths. Cal Poly’s Learn by Doing principle of instruction prepares undergraduates for careers in applied technical and professional fields. From computers to crops, Cal Poly holds that the best preparation for any endeavor is derived through practical application. This ideal has set Cal Poly apart from other schools and been the school’s driving philosophy since its 1901 founding. Courses at Cal Poly emphasize a high proportion of lab work, fieldwork and special assignments, culminating with a senior project. Unique on-campus opportunities – such as an organic farm and a student-run daily newspaper and majors of study ranging from aerospace engineering to wine and viticulture – make hands-on learning a daily reality at Cal Poly. In total, Cal Poly confers bachelor's degrees in 64 separate areas of study. Nine of those degrees are exclusive to the San Luis Obispo campus (see next page). For 24 consecutive years, U.S. News and World Report has ranked Cal Poly as the top public master’s university in the western United States. The publication also ranked Cal Poly’s College of Engineering as the No. 3 program in the nation among public non-doctoral institutions (see below). On-campus activities are headquartered at the renown University Union and Cal Poly’s student-run activities have earned enviable reputations across the nation. Week of Welcome offers first-quarter students a successful introduction to the collegiate experience through a team of trained student leaders and university officials, all of whom provide academic and social resources, encourage awareness and promote relationships with the campus and Central Coast community. Athletically, Cal Poly boasts one of the most successful Division I programs for an insti-

tution of its size. During the 2016-17 academic year, the athletics department – which sponsors 21 varsity programs – saw the men’s and women’s cross country teams and women’s golf programs advance to the NCAA regionals, the softball team earn a berth in the inaugural National Invitational Softball Championship and three teams win Big West titles (men’s and women’s cross country, women’s golf). Peyton Bilo qualified for the NCAA Championships in both cross country and track and field. Individually, Joe Protheroe and Matt Fisher (football) along with Sierra Hyland (softball), Bilo (track and field) and Spencer Howard (baseball) earned All-America honors during the 2016-17 academic year. Bradlee Beesley earned freshman AllAmerican honors. Howard (second round) and fellow pitcher Erich Uelmen (fourth round) were selected in the MLB Draft in June 2017. Named Big West athletes of the year were Bilo (women’s cross country), Clayton Hutchins (men’s cross country) and Hyland (softball pitcher of the year). As testament to Cal Poly’s athletics and academic integrity, 113 Mustangs collected conference all-academic praise during the 2016-17 school year. The Cal Poly Athletics Department also finished third in the Big West Commissioner’s Cup, an award presented to the institution with the best overall results in the conference’s 16 sponsored sports, and 10 squads posted perfect Academic Progress Rate scores during the 201617 academic year. Internationally, Cal Poly was represented at the 2008 Summer Olympics by former Mustangs Sharon Day (United States, high jump), Jimmy Van Ostrand (Canada, baseball) and Stephanie Brown Trafton, whose gold medal for the United States in the discus competition was the first such feat by a Mustang athlete. Day (heptathlon) and Brown Trafton (discus) also qualified for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Wrestler Boris Novachkov qualified for the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro in 65-kilogram (143pound) freestyle competition.

BEST IN THE WEST

CAL POLY AN ACADEMIC DYNASTY 24 YEARS IN THE MAKING

For the 24th straight year, Cal Poly was rated by U.S. News and World Report as the best public master’s university in the western United States in its 2016 America’s Best Colleges guidebook. Cal Poly also is rated the most efficient school among regional western universities and placed ninth in the publication’s overall list of the west’s best universities – including both public and private institutions – that provide “a full range of undergraduate and master’s-level programs but few, if any, doctoral programs.” The publication ranks colleges that grant doctoral degrees, such as those in the University of California system, in a separate category. “Being named Best in the West for 24 straight years is a terrific acknowledgment of Cal Poly’s sustained excellence over a long period of time,” said Cal Poly President Jeffrey D. Armstrong. “The credit belongs to our faculty and staff for their unwavering dedication and commitment to our students’ success, and it underscores the power of our Learn by Doing philosophy.”

Within individual areas of study, U.S. News and World Report ranked Cal Poly’s College of Engineering No. 3 among public engineering programs for schools whose highest degree is a bachelor’s or master’s (Cal Poly was bested only by the United States Military Academy and Air Force Academy). A number of College of Engineering programs ranked high in the Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs in their individual specialty categories. The university’s computer, electrical and mechanical engineering programs were each ranked as the top program at a public university in their respective specialty categories. Cal Poly’s civil and environmental engineering program was ranked the secondbest program at a public university.

CAL POLY HISTORY

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS, TRANSCENDENT FUTURE

In front of the Orfalea College of Business iis the O’Neill Green, which hosts, among other activities, a tailgate prior to football games at the adjacent and recently remodeled Alex G. Spanos Stadium. A 1948 graduate of the College of Agriculture, the late Richard J. O’Neill is the founder of Supporters of Mustang Athletics Teams (SUMAT) and was instrumental in helping to stabilize funding for Cal Poly.

I

n the 1890s, when a proposal for a teacher training school in San Luis Obispo seemed unlikely to succeed, California State Senator Sylvester C. Smith instead suggested a polytechnic institute. Myron Angel, chronicler of San Luis Obispo County history, became an ardent supporter of the idea and articulated a vision to establish a school that would “teach the hand as well as the head.” The plan succeeded and on March 8, 1901, legislation was signed founding the California Polytechnic School, then a vocational high school. During the ensuing three decades, Cal Poly evolved into the modern equivalent of a junior college, but its future became uncertain. In 1933, however, Julian A. McPhee, chief of the California Bureau of Agricultural Education, saved the institution from abolishment by agreeing to become school president. During the next 33 years, McPhee guided Cal Poly’s transformation into a four-year institution and set an educational standard still emulated today. Cal Poly’s first baccalaureate exercises were held in May 1942 and in 1947, the institution was officially renamed California State Polytechnic College. As programs continued to evolve, the institution became California Polytechnic State University in 1972. The Learn by Doing ethos continues to inform the paths Cal Poly’s alumni pursue, and they keep the friendships they start here. They also learn by succeeding. Median starting salary for recent graduates was $60,000 (beating all other CSU and UC campuses) and mid-career salaries for Cal Poly alumni are better than all UC and CSU campuses except Berkeley and UC San Diego -- and better than many private universities. More than half of Cal Poly seniors have a job offer in hand before they graduate -- even in today’s difficult economy.

Dedicated in 2006 and situated outside of Alex G. Spanos Stadium, Mustang Memorial Plaza commemorates the 16 Cal Poly football players, team manager and program supporter who perished Oct. 29, 1960 in an airplane accident outside of Toledo, Ohio.

Welcome to Cal Poly

At Cal Poly, the most important person on campus is the student. We start with the premise that all of our students, because they have met Cal Poly's high standards for admission, are equipped to succeed. And then our dedicated faculty and staff bring to bear their enormous talent and unwavering commitment to students' success. Central to this process is Cal Poly's distinctive Learn by Doing approach, in which we provide students with daily opportunities to apply classroom theory to realworld problems in the context of a comprehensive polytechnic education, grounded in the arts and sciences. Learn by Doing enables students to develop deep confidence in their knowledge and technical skills, preparing them to become resourceful and innovative professionals who can help solve the problems of an increasingly complex and technological world. Highly motivated students, talented faculty, dedicated staff, and the dynamic nature of Learn by Doing - these are important facets of Cal Poly, but not the whole sum. An exceptional university succeeds only if it has the full engagement of the entire university community students, faculty and staff, parents, alumni and friends one that joins together in a partnership of discovery. Fortunately, Cal Poly has an abundance of people deeply committed to a vibrant partnership, and deeply committed to transforming lives, one student at a time. It is my great privilege to be associated with the people of Cal Poly, and I invite you to join our partnership. Jeffrey D. Armstrong President

CAL POLY ADMINISTRATION

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS DON OBERHELMAN onald J. Oberhelman was CAL POLY DIVISION I HONORS named Cal Poly’s Director of

Athletics on March 17, 2011. Oberhelman, 45, came to Cal Poly after serving as the Chief Operating Officer and Senior Associate Athletic Director at San Diego State University. In that capacity, he was responsible for the daily operations of San Diego State’s intercollegiate athletics program. “Cal Poly has a great tradition of academic excellence and we want to continue to build on that tradition in everything we do,” Oberhelman said at the time of his hiring. “For many people, athletics is the first impression they have of the university. We must make sure these impressions are great ones." Oberhelman has served in a number of NCAA and conference leadership roles, including The NCAA Division I Council. The 40-member Council is charged with managing the new governance structure, the many changes taking place in college athletics, and the day-to-day decision making for all of Division I. In April 2015, he was appointed by the NCAA to chair the newly formed NCAA Division I Legislative Committee to review legislation and communicate positions to the Division I Council. Oberhelman has served on many working groups for the NCAA, currently serving in a review of the future of amateurism within the collegiate model. He is a current member of the Executive Committee for the Big West Conference. Oberhelman also serves on the Board of Directors for the Hearst Cancer Center, as well as the Board of the American Heart Association. The Mustang Way, the core values for the department, was developed under Oberhelman's leadership. These values were so well received that the university adopted much of them as their own in 2012, and The Mustang Way has since become an integral part of campus life at Cal Poly. Cal Poly has recently seen many NCAA Division I 'firsts.' After a 20-year history in Division I, with Oberhelman at the helm the Mustangs experienced the first NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament appearance, the first Women's NCAA Basketball Tournament appearance, a number one national ranking for baseball, first hosting of the NCAA Baseball Regionals, first Big Sky Conference football championship, and the best finish in the Big West Commissioner's Cup in our history with six championships in one season. The Mustangs' most successful competitive Division I campaign may have been this past season, but Oberhelman believes championships are not enough. “We know our primary obligation is to develop our studentathletes," said Oberhelman. "I want us to be leaders in graduation rates as well as in championships." Cal Poly President Jeffrey D. Armstrong echoed Oberhelman’s sentiments. “Don’s goal is for all of our student-athletes to leave Cal

Poly with a diploma and a championship ring,” Armstrong said. “That’s a great goal for our student-athletes and our fans.” Mustang athletics continues to be a leader in graduation rates, graduating student-athletes at a higher rate than the campus as a whole, the ultimate measure of academic success. This past year the Mustangs received more NCAA Academic Achievement Awards than the rest of the Big West Conference combined, and half of all student-athletes maintain over a 3.0 GPA. Facility renovations abound as the Varsity Tennis Complex, Mott Athletics Center, Anderson Pool, and Alex G. Spanos Stadium have all seen improvements under Oberhelman's direction. Private giving has gone up dramatically during his tenure, leading to these improvements as well as growth in financial aid and athletic support staff. Prior to his tenure at San Diego State, Oberhelman served several roles at Southern Mississippi, the most recent as the senior associate athletic director (2002-07), education coordinator for athletics at Texas A&M (1998-2002) and as a compliance assistant at Florida State (1995-1998). The native of rural Kansas earned his bachelor’s in business administration at Kansas State and his master’s in athletic administration at Florida State. Don resides with his wife D.D. in Avila Beach.

MUSTANGS EXCEL IN THE CLASSROOM

or more than 100 years, Cal Poly’s student-athletes have been dedicated to excellence in both the athletic and academic arenas. During the 2016-17 scholastic year alone, 113 Mustangs were named to all-conference academic teams. Since Cal Poly transitioned to the Division I level in 1994, the school has enjoyed 1,083 total all-conference academic selections – an average of over 47 per year. Taking pride in each student’s ability to excel both athletically and intellectually, Cal Poly and the athletics department offer guidance and support to each student-athlete during his or her tenure. To support these motives, the athletics department initiated the Academic Resource Center.

Opened in 2001, the center provides yearround academic support, tutoring, workshops and academic advising. Remodeled in the summer of 2017, the center has also developed study hall programs with biquarterly progress checks, weekly academic appointments and a first-year seminar class for incoming student-athletes. In deference to the student-athlete’s need for class schedule flexibility, Cal Poly also offers in-season priority registration for two of the three quarters during which competition occurs. Of the 64 major courses offered at Cal Poly, Mustang student-athletes were enrolled in 52 separate areas, as of the Fall 2016 term.

ATHLETIC EXCELLENCE

Featuring 21 varsity programs, the Cal Poly Athletics Department is in its 24th year of NCAA Division I competition since completing reclassification in 1994. With the exception of football (Big Sky Conference), wrestling (Pac-12 Conference) and the men’s and women’s swimming and indoor track and field programs (Mountain Pacific Sports Federation), Cal Poly is also in its 22nd year as a member of the Big West Conference. Among Big West institutions, only UC Davis (22 programs) boasts more athletic disciplines than Cal Poly. Prior to transitioning to the Division I level, Cal Poly ranked as the most successful institution in the history of NCAA Division II athletics with 35 national team titles. Cal Poly has continued its winning tradition at the top flight with teams and individuals routinely earning conference championships and NCAA Tournament berths. During the 2013-14 academic year, the athletics department -- which added beach volleyball in 2014 -saw the men’s basketball, men’s tennis and baseball programs advance to the NCAA Championships. Individually during the 2016-17 academic year, Joe Protheroe and Matt Fisher (football), Spencer Howard (baseball), Peyton Bilo (track and field) and Sierra Hyland (softball) earned All-America honors during the 2016-17 academic year. Bradlee Beesley earned freshman All-American honors. Howard (second round) and fellow pitcher Erich Uelmen (fourth round) were selected in the MLB Draft in June 2017 while Hyland was the No. 4 overall pick in the National Pro Fastpitch draft. Named Big West athletes of the year were Bilo (women’s cross country), Clayton Hutchins (men’s cross country) and Hyland (softball pitcher of the year). As testament to Cal Poly’s athletics and academic integrity, 113 Mustangs collected conference all-academic praise during the 2016-17 school year. The Cal Poly Athletics Department also finished third in the Big West Commissioner’s Cup, an award presented to the institution with the best overall results in the conference’s 16 sponsored sports. Cal Poly athletes have consistently excelled outside the bounds of the collegiate arena. Cal Poly was represented at the 2008 Summer Olympics by former Mustangs Sharon Day (United States, high jump), Jimmy Van Ostrand (Canada, baseball) and Stephanie Brown Trafton, whose gold medal for the United States in the discus competition was the first such feat by a Mustang athlete. Day (heptathlon) and Brown Trafton (discus) also qualified for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London while wrestler Boris Novachkov earned a spot in the 2016 Summer Games at Rio de Janeiro. Other prominent post-Cal Poly examples include AllAmerican wide receiver Ramses Barden (2005-08), who was a third-round selection by the New York Giants in 2009 and played four years in the NFL. Former linebacker Chris Gocong (2002-05) – one of Cal Poly’s three Buck Buchanan Award winners as the Football Championship Subdivision’s top defensive player – made 35 starts in three active seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. Linebacker Nick Dzubnar currently is with the San Diego Chargers while defensive lineman Josh Letuligasenoa is battling for a spot on the Green Bay Packers roster. Former men’s soccer midfielder Anton Peterlin is the only Big West player to have appeared in an English Football League match. Three former Mustangs -Junior Burgos (Toronto FC), Patrick McLain (Chivas USA), Kip Colvey (San Jose Earthquakes), George Malki (Houston Dynamo) and Ariel Lassiter (L.A. Galaxy) have played on Major League Soccer clubs. Mackenzie Pridham plays for Minnesota United FC of the North American Soccer League. Lassiter (Team USA) and Kip Colvey (New Zealand) have been named to national under-23 teams. As of August 2017, the Cal Poly baseball program produced seven Major League players in the last eight years with pitchers Casey Fien (Phillies) and Bud Norris (Angels) and outfielder Mitch Haniger (Mariners) on active rosters. Eighteen other Mustangs were active professionally.

CAL POLY ATHLETICS DEPARTMENT FACILITIES

ENHANCED BY SOME OF THE NATION’S MOST RAVENOUS CROWDS AND PRISTINE WEATHER, CAL POLY’S ATHLETICS FACILITIES PROVIDE THE MUSTANGS WITH AN UNPARALLELED HOME ADVANTAGE

Completed in 2006, Alex G. Spanos Stadium (above) hosts Cal Poly’s football and men’s and women’s soccer programs. The Mustang football team christened the complex on Nov. 18, 2006 with a 55-0 victory versus Savannah State, while a program-record 11,075 spectators packed Spanos Stadium Sept. 15, 2007 for Cal Poly’s season home-opening win against Weber State. On Oct. 17, 2008, another sellout crowd of 11,075 supporters – then the thirdlargest regular season crowd figure in NCAA men’s soccer history – flooded Spanos Stadium for Cal Poly’s nationally-televised showdown against central coast rival UC Santa Barbara. During the 2009 season, the men’s soccer program ranked third among NCAA Division I programs by averaging 2,213 fans per home date.

Cal Poly’s volleyball, wrestling and basketball programs call the 3,032-seat Mott Athletics Center (right) home. A new $700,000 floor was installed during the summer of 2007 along with two videoboards ($750,000) prior to the 2014-15 campaign. During recent years, Mott has hosted the Pac-12 Conference Wrestling Championships and, in front of a sold-out audience, the first and seconds rounds of the 2006 NCAA Volleyball Tournament (also right). The men’s basketball program produced a trio of sellouts in 2016 as well as two more during the 2014-15 season and one against Big West champion UC Davis in February 2014. Additionally, the Mustang women’s basketball program drew a program-record 2,552 fans for a March 5, 2011 game against UC Santa Barbara.

Remodeled at a cost of more than $3 million, the Olympic-sized Anderson Aquatic Center (left) was completed in August 2009 and plays host to both Cal Poly’s men’s and women’s swimming and diving programs. Situated adjacent to the Mott Athletics Center, the pool measures 12,348 square feet. Eight 50-yard lanes highlight the complex, which also provides for a total of eighteen 25-yard cross course lanes. The complex also features a 15-by-30-foot all-shallow therapy pool. Anderson Aquatic Center held its first official event on Oct. 3, 2009, when the Mustang women’s swimming program welcomed thendefending national champion California to San Luis Obispo.

The Mustang softball program, which clinched its first Big West title in 2007 at Janssen Field, drew an overflow, program-record 1,532 fans for a 2007 doubleheader against perennial national powerhouse UCLA. Both venues feature spacious clubhouses, as well as batting cages and bullpen areas for both teams.
