QUESTION AND ANSWERS WITH KAREN MIDLETON

Q&A WITH HEAD COACH KAREN MIDDLETON What appealed to you most about becoming the head coach much we enjoy playing with and for each other. We want to run at Western Carolina? For me it was the total package Western Carolina presents. I really feel YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL! We have a special combination of quality academics and basketball tradition. Western continues to provide the incredible academic opportunities a much larger university can give BUT with a personal touch. Academically our players are able to reach each of their your goals. On the court, I can’t say enough about the winning tradition that has been established and the hunger to go even further. I’ve been fortunate to have been to Elite Eights and Sweet Sixteens and won Conference Championships, and our team has the drive it takes to COMPETE and WIN. Honestly, what appealed to me most was the people at Western Carolina. From Dr. Bardo to Chip to Dr. Brown and everyone in the athletic department to the players and fellow coaches, there is a genuine support from everyone.

How has the transition been for yourself and the players? With any coaching change there is a transition and adjustment period. The process will continue throughout the season as we learn and get to know each other even better on and off the court. We have an incredible group of very mature and high character young ladies. They represent our program and University extremely well. Each of the players have been very receptive and open to our style of play and philosophy we are instilling. They have been focused and pick up all of the new concepts we are teaching very quickly. Anytime you have a team with such a great chemistry naturally everything else seems to fall into place. The team expects what our staff expects and that is EXCELLENCE in everything we do and competing for and winning championships. What is your coaching philosophy? I want each of the young women to enjoy their college experience. I want them to leave Western with a degree in a field they are excited about and be a PROUD Alum. The players will not remember scores of games but they will remember how they felt and the family they were a part of. Winning is important, but a positive overall experience is critical.

and push it offensively while at the same time making good decisions and not turning the basketball over. We will not beat ourselves. Our offense will have a lot of movement and allow our players freedom to take advantage of their versatility. Defensively, we want to create offense from our defense and make our opponents take difficult shots. Can you talk about the impact your three seniors (Heather Swayne, Kristen Feemster and Jessica Jackson) have made so far and what you see them doing for the team? I can’t say enough about our senior’s experience and leadership they provide. They have had an incredible career thus far and we want to make this year the best yet. They are the heart and soul of our team. We will depend on their leadership to help us remain consistent throughout the season and stay focused on each of our goals. The non-conference schedule is very challenging, and you are also taking the team to Alaska for a tournament. What are your goals for this team this year? We do have a challenging schedule, but we are competitors and want to be challenged. Our non-conference schedule will prepare us for an extremely tough and challenging SoCon. We have several teams that competed in post season play last year and will allow us to gauge where we are and what areas we need to improve. Our goal is to get better day by day and game by game. We have an extremely competitive team that holds each other accountable and when they put their mind to it will get it done. Talk a little about the balance you see on this years team. We lost 3 of the top 4 scorers from last years Championship team, but we also have great balance returning. We have players that are ready to step up and make a difference on both ends of the floor. It is going to be fun to see each of them step up and grab onto their new roles. We have players that will provide consistent productivity on the offensive end, but on any given night, a different player could have a breakout game.

What will be your teams identity? Our vision is to be a very disciplined, hard working team that does all the little things. We want to have FUN and show our fans how SOUTHERN CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONS 2005 / 2009

I learned to read music throughout middle and high school. During the summer of 2004, I had knee surgery and couldn’t play basketball for months. I eventually got bored and taught myself to play the piano. Ever since then music has been my outlet. I can always find a song to fit my mood and if not, I can play my own.

CULLOWHEE, N.C. - Western Carolina women’s basketball defeated the Brevard College Tornados 75-45 in the Lady Catamounts lone exhibition game to tip-off the 2008-09 season in the Ramsey Center Saturday night. Junior guard Heather Swayne came off the bench and scored 11 points connecting on 5-of-9 from the field and also had three rebounds and two steals. Fellow junior Kristen Feemster attacked the boards, leading the club with 10 rebounds. All 12 players saw time on the court for Western Carolina and everyone got in the scoring column. Western Carolina had just 12 turnovers in the contest and forced Brevard to give up the ball 26 times. The Lady Catamounts, however, struggled at the free throw line connecting on just 10-of-21 from the charity stripe. It was just a 10 point difference after the first 20 minutes of the contest as the Lady Catamounts had a 34-24 lead heading into the locker room. Western Carolina had a 15 point lead, 34-19, with five minutes left in the half but Brevard went on a 5-0 run to close out the half and narrow the Lady Catamount advantage. It was a different story in the second half. After Western Carolina settled down, the Lady Catamounts scored 41 points in the second half and allowed just 21 points from Brevard. Western Carolina also shot 46.2 percent from the field in the final 20 minutes as the Tornados shot just 22.6 percent.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Western Carolina women’s basketball (0-1) lost in the first round of the Preseason WNIT 90-56 to No. 4 North Carolina (1-0) Friday in the Smith Center. The Lady Catamounts fall into the consolation bracket of the tournament and will find out their opponent and competition site late Saturday. A pair of Western Carolina seniors led the Lady Catamounts in scoring - Brooke Johnson paced the team with 13 points and Lauren Powell followed with 12. Johnson also had two blocks and two assists in the game but the telling stat was just two rebounds, as she didn’t get her first board until two minutes into the second half. North Carolina used quickness and long-range shooting to put Western Carolina on its heels early in the game and then never looked back. The Tarheels scored the first eight points of the game before sophomore guard Emily Clarke hit the first Lady Catamount basket of the game almost three minutes into the game. The Tarheels then reeled off 15 unanswered points to balloon their lead to 23-2 before the Lady Catamounts could answer again with just their second basket of the game as junior Heather Swayne came off the bench to drain a three after the first media timeout. It was back-to-back threes for Western Carolina as Powell followed with a trey of her own. However, Western Carolina couldn’t stop North Carolina from hitting three pointers of its own as the Tarheels hit 10 three-pointers in the game. The fleet of foot UNC players also had 19 steals in the game and scored 34 points off turnovers - the margin of victory in the game.

CULLOWHEE, N.C. - Western Carolina women’s basketball (1-1) scored 37 points in the second half and held Lafayette (0-2) to just 17, in the final 20 minutes, to defeat the Leopards, 68-51, in the first round of the Preseason WNIT Consolation Bracket Friday in the Ramsey Center. Eaton was a force under the basket for Western Carolina. She ended the contest with a season-high 16 points and also had eight boards and was a perfect 6-for-6 from the charity stripe. Sophomore Emily Clarke was the only other Lady Catamount to score in double figures with 10 points and was 2-for-2 from behind the arch. Lafayette did manage to trim the Western Carolina lead to four, 45-41, which was the closest the Leopards would get in the second half. A pair of free throws by Kristen Feemster and a three-pointer by Clarke pushed the Lady Catamount lead to 10 and WCU didn’t relinquish a double-digit lead the rest of the game. The Lady Catamount freshmen saw plenty of quality minutes in the game against Lafayette. Kalia’Shea Menendez showed her calm as the clock wound down to end the game as with a second left she buried a three-pointer from the left side as the buzzer sounded. Menendez ended the contest with a career-high nine points and was 2-for-3 from the three point line.

CULLOWHEE, N.C. - Emily Clarke tied her career-high with 18 points to help pace Western Carolina women’s basketball to a 73-53 win over Liberty in the Preseason WNIT Consolation Winner’s Bracket Finals Saturday in the Ramsey Center. The Lady Catamounts improve to 2-1 on the season and even their record to 3-3 in WNIT sponsored events. Liberty, who was receiving a vote in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ Poll, falls to 1-2 on the season. Clarke opened the game with a three-pointer from the top of the key and that ensured Western Carolina would never trail in the game. However, WCU took some time to find its footing against the flame, and after the game was tied at 16 with 8:28 left in the first half, the Lady Catamounts went on a 14-3 run to lead 30-19 at the half. Western Carolina built as much as a 19 point lead to start the second half, with a 12-6 run, with was capped off by a jumper by Brooke Johnson with 16:10 to go. However, WCU left the door open for a possible Liberty comeback when the club went on a scoring drought, only a pair of field goals and one free throw in the span six minutes to the Flame claw within 10 with 10 minutes to go in the game. Clarke nailed down the Liberty threat when she drained a three-pointer, her second of three in game, to push the lead back to 13. Liberty would never get closer in the game and twice more Western Carolina tied its largest lead of 19 to ensure a victory. Western Carolina shot a season-high 45.8 percent from the field and also connected on seven three-pointers in the game. The club, however, was out-rebounded by Liberty with the Flames winning the board advantage with 32 to Western Carolina’s 32.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Three Western Carolina players scored in double figures but it just wasn’t enough to stop No. 9/12 Tennessee as the Lady Catamounts dropped a 81-56 decision to the Lady Vols Tuesday in Thompson Boling Arena. Western Carolina falls to 2-2 on the season and Tennessee improves to 4-1. The Lady Catamounts enjoyed two brief leads in the first 10 minutes of the contest. The first was thanks to a three-pointer from the left side by freshman Kalai’Shea Menendez to give WCU a 17-16 advantage. Tennessee quickly re-took the lead, 18-17, but Western Carolina answered when Emily Clarke dropped in a bucket to make it 1918 with 9:23 left in the first half. Tennessee, however, quickly answered with a three pointer by Sydney Smallbone which began a 21-7 run by Tennessee and all but took the Lady Catamounts out of their game. In that nine plus minute span, Western Carolina hit just two field goals, a two-pointer by Clarke and a three-pointer by Brooke Johnson, and also a pair of free throws by Johnson. Senior Lauren Powell gave a bit of a spark to the Lady Catamounts scoring 12 points in the second half after sitting out the last 15 minutes of the first half with two quick fouls. Powell led the club with 14 points.

BOZEMAN, MONT. -- Sophomore guard Kendra Carroll poured in a career-high 17 points and was one of four Lady Catamounts in double figures but it wasn’t enough to stop a second-half push by Montana State, as the Bobcats defeated Western Carolina 90-82 Saturday in Worthington Arena. Carroll had already bested her career-high of 10 points with 11 points in the first half and ended the game 7-of-12 from the field and 1-of-3 from the three point line. She was closely followed by senior Kendra Eaton who had 15 points in the game, with 13 coming in the first half; however Eaton could only produce two points in the second half. The stat stuffing continued for the Lady Catamounts with sophomore Emily Clarke’s first double-double of her career with 13 points and a career-high 12 rebounds. She also continued her streak having scored in double figures in her last four games. Senior Lauren Powell had 13 points in the contest. For all the points and milestones, it doesn’t erase the fact that Western Carolina built a 14 point lead twice in the first three minutes of the second half, leading 42-33 after the first 20 minutes, and watched it erode when Montana State went on a 13-0 run to tie the game at 51 with 15:36 left to go in the game. The Bobcats scored 56 points in the second half.

ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- Western Carolina women’s basketball dropped its third consecutive game, and is still looking for its first road win of the season, after falling 90-71 to rival UNC Asheville Tuesday in the Justice Center. The Lady Catamounts fall to 2-4 on the season and the Bulldogs improve to 2-5. Free throws, free throws, free throws: it was one of the differences in the game. Western Carolina shot an anemic 13-of-25 from the charity stripe and only connected on 4-of-13 in the second half including missing four front ends of one-and-ones. For the second straight game, Western Carolina allowed a team to score 50 or more points on the club in the second half. Montana State posted 57 points in the final 20 minutes and UNC Asheville had 51 points in the second half. The Bulldogs 90 points against Western Carolina is the second straight team to put up 90 or more points on Western Carolina and the third overall in just six games. The Lady Catamounts had its largest lead of the game, up by six 23-17 with 10 minutes left in the first half. After the fifth tie of the game, at 31, Lindsey Montgomery hit the second of two free throws to give UNCA the lead and the Bulldogs never trailed again. Western Carolina trailed by three, 39-36, at the half and trimmed the Bulldog lead to one, 53-52, with 12 minutes left but UNCA had an answer for every Western Carolina bucket. The Lady Catamounts also shot just 38 percent from the field and was out rebounded by 11, 55-44. Three players did score in double figures in the losing effort with Lauren Powell and Heather Swayne leading the way with 12 points a piece. Powell also tied the school record for three-pointers in a career, with two treys in the game, and now has 180. She needs just one three-pointer to break the record.

CULLOWHEE, N.C. -- Sophomore guard/forward Emily Clarke poured in a career-high 25 points and Western Carolina women’s basketball halted a three-game losing skid with a 68-59 victory over Middle Tennessee Sunday in the Ramsey Center. The Lady Catamounts improve to 3-4 on the season while the Blue Raiders fall to 5-3. Clarke was on fire for the Lady Catamounts as she was 8-of-13 from the field, 2-of3 from behind the three-point arch and was also 7-of-10 from the charity stripe. The Snellville, Ga. native also had eight rebounds and one steal. It is the second time this season Western Carolina has posted a win over an opponent receiving votes in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ Poll. Middle Tennessee was receiving six votes in the Coaches poll that was released on December 1. The win also evens the two schools overall record against each other to 2-2. Middle Tennessee jumped out to an early 10-5 lead to start the game and Western Carolina clawed to within one point, 10-9, thanks to a jumper by Heather Swayne. Clarke gave the Lady Catamounts the lead for the rest of the game when she drained a three-pointer with 12:37 left in the first half to give WCU a 12-10 advantage. Western Carolina held onto a five point lead, 23-18, with five minutes remaining in the half and went on a 13-4 run to build a 14-point lead at the half. Clarke scored 19 points in the first half to break her career-record for points in a game after the first 20 minutes. The Lady Catamounts clung to their lead over the Blue Raiders tenuously, in the second half, and Middle Tennessee made its run cutting Western Carolina’s lead to, 5046 when Anne Marie Lanning hit a three-pointer with 7:09 left in the game. Western Carolina answered with a free throw by Lauren Powell and a lay-up by Brooke Johnson. It was the start of a 10-0 run that ballooned Western Carolina’s lead back to 14, 60-46, with 3:38 left. Middle Tennessee cut it to single digits three times but could never go below an eight point deficit.

DAVIDSON, N.C. -- Senior center Brooke Johnson scored a career-high 26 points but it wasn’t enough to push Western Carolina past Davidson as the Lady Catamounts dropped their Southern Conference opener 84-66 Sunday in the John M. Belk Arena. Western Carolina falls to 3-5 and 0-1 in the Southern Conference while Davidson improves to 4-6 and 3-0 in the SoCon. Johnson, from Seymour, Tennessee, finally had her breakout game, this year, after playing only 11 games in 2007-08 due to a season-ending injury. She had been flirting with a “big game” with three double figure performances, 13, 12 and 10 points, this season and almost scored that combined in the contest against the Wildcats. Johnson’s 26 points was 33 percent of the Lady Catamounts offense and she also connected on 36 percent of the team’s field goals, as she had eight of the club’s total 22 field goals in the game. She also keeps her streak alive with a block against the Wildcats - she has had at least one block in the first eight games of the season. Western Carolina came out on fire in the first two plus minutes of the game going on an 11-0 run. The Lady Catamounts held Davidson without a field goal for the six minutes of the game until Ashley Lax connected on a field goal with 13:10 left in the first half. Davidson scored its first four points of the game on free throws and that note would be what kept Davidson in the game, and what would eventually be the key stat for the Wildcats.

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Junior forward Kristen Feemster recorded her first career double-double and Western Carolina women’s basketball picked up its first road win of the season, with a 91-66 Southern Conference victory over Wofford, Tuesday in the Benjamin Johnson Center. The Lady Catamounts improve to 4-5 and even their SoCon record to 1-1 while Wofford falls to 1-8 and 0-3 in the conference. Feemster had a big game, coming off the bench to score a career-high 13 points and tie her career-high with 11 rebounds. She scored nine of her points in the first half. Senior center Brooke Johnson led all scorers with 19 points and just missed a doubledouble of her own with nine rebounds. Fellow senior Lauren Powell was the third Lady Catamount to score in double figures with 12 points. In the game, all 12 Western Carolina players saw action and everyone got in the scoring column. Western Carolina opened the game slow trailing early, 2-0, and tied the game at four before going on a 22-4 run, in a seven minute span, that was capped off by a threepointer by Johnson - who was 2-of-2 from the three-point line and has hit two or more treys in her last two games. Western Carolina nearly doubled Wofford in the rebounding column, crashing the boards for a season-high 54 rebounds and only giving up 35 to the Terriers. The Lady Catamounts scored 40 of their points in the paint and got 45 points from the bench.

CULLOWHEE N.C. -- Western Carolina women’s basketball rallied back from a 13-point halftime deficit to defeat College of Charleston 80-68 Friday in the Ramsey Center. The Lady Catamounts reach the .500 mark for the first time this season evening their record to 5-5. The Cougars of College of Charleston had Western Carolina on its heels in the first 20 minutes of the game quickly building a 10-point lead, 13-10, in the first five minutes of the contest and held a double digit lead for most of the first half. The Cougars also burnt the Lady Catamounts for six three-pointers and shot 47.1 percent from the field. Trailing 42-29 at the half, Western Carolina came out in the second half and went on a 7-0 run to cut the College of Charleston lead to six, 42-36, in a two minute span. The Lady Catamounts kept chipping away and took the lead for the first time in the game, 51-50, when senior Lauren Powell drained a three-pointer from the left corner with 13:44 left in the game. Western Carolina and College of Charleston traded baskets for the next seven minutes but the Lady Catamounts never relinquished the lead. The Cougars did tie the game at 63 with 6:02 remaining but senior Brooke Johnson answered with a lay-up, which would spur a 10-0 run by WCU and give the club its first double digit lead of the game. Western Carolina had four players score in double figures and was led by junior Emily Clarke who led all scorers with 21 points. She had just seven points in the first half and rallied to score 14 of her points in the second half. She was also 5-of-6 from the free throw line and 2-of-5 from the three-point line. Johnson made the most of her shooting attempts as she was 4-of-5 from the field, 1-of-1 from the three-point line and 4-of-5 from the charity stripe for 13 points. Jackson scored a career-high 12 points draining a pair of three-pointers and was 6-of-7 from the free throw line. For the second straight game, senior Powell came off the bench to score in double figures with 11 points.

CULLOWHEE N.C. -- Western Carolina women’s basketball had its two-game winning streak snapped falling to Georgia Southern 62-50 Sunday in the Ramsey Center. The Lady Catamounts fall to 6-5 and 2-2 in the Southern Conference while the Eagles improve to 7-4 and 3-1 in the SoCon. Anemic shooting from the field doomed Western Carolina. The club didn’t hit a field goal the first seven minutes of the first half, the drought being quenched by sophomore guard Kendra Carroll how drained a jumper at 12:59 left on the clock. Western Carolina’s first four points of the game came at the free throw line. Western Carolina took its only lead of the game, 18-17, with 4:57 left in the first half off a jumper by Emily Clarke. Georgia Southern quickly answered with a three-pointer by Brittney Nelson going on an 8-2 run to close out the half to take a 25-20 lead into halftime. The Lady Catamounts were never able to find their rhythm on the court and Georgia Southern capitalized in the first three minutes of the second half going on a 7-0 run to build a 12 point lead, 32-20. Western Carolina would trim the lead back down to five, 32-27, off a layup by Kristen Feemster but it would be the closest the club would get again in the game. Western Carolina struggled on the court, shooting just 32 percent from the field and watched as its top scorers, Clarke and Brooke Johnson, were held to single digits. Clarke came close to double figures with nine points but Johnson was held to just one field goal, three points total, and was 0-of-4 from behind the three-point line. Jessica Jackson also had nine points and was 3-of-4 from the three-point line.

CULLOWHEE N.C. -- Sophomore Emily Clarke scored 19 points and Brooke Johnson recorded her first double-double of the season to push Western Carolina women’s basketball to the .500 mark, 6-6, and close out 2008 with a victory, defeating UNC Wilmington (6-4) 73-63 Tuesday in the Ramsey Center. Clarke was on fire in the first half completing the first 20 minutes of the game with 13 points and was a perfect 5-for-5 from the field and also 3-for-3 from behind the three point line. She carried over her perfection to start the second half, hitting a threepointer to start the second 20 minutes, going 6-for-6 before missing a three-pointer from the left side. Clarke ended the game 6-of-7 from the field, 4-of-5 from the threepoint mark and 3-of-4 from the free throw line. Johnson, as stated above, notched her first double-double of the season with 12 points and a season-high 13 rebounds; it is the fifth double-double of her career. She also had three blocks, just one shy of her season-high. She now has 20 blocks on the season and needs just 11 blocks to move into second place in the Lady Catamount record books for blocks in a career. UNC Wilmington won the rebounding battle pulling down 40 boards to Western Carolina’s 39. The Lady Catamounts made it count in the field shooting 48.2 percent and was also 11-17 from the free throw line. UNC Wilmington struggled at the free throw line, as the club who normally shoots 75 percent from the charity stripe shot just 50 percent; 15-of-30. After failing to post a double digit scorer in its last game, Western Carolina had three against UNC Wilmington. Clarke of course paced the club with 19 points and was followed by Johnson with 12. Heather Swayne rounded out the double figure scoring coming off the bench to score in double figures for the third time this season with 10 points against the Seahawks.

BOONE, N.C. -- Western Carolina freshman Kaila’Shea Menendez led all scorers with a career-high 17 points to pace Western Carolina women’s basketball to a 92-55 win at Appalachian State Saturday in the Holmes Center. The Lady Catamounts improve to 7-6 and 3-2 in Southern Conference play while the Mountaineers fall to 1-11 and 0-4 in SoCon. Western Carolina moves above .500 for the second time this season with its second Southern Conference road win of the year. It is also the third time this season the Lady Catamounts have won two consecutive games. Appalachian State scored the first bucket of the game for an early 2-0 lead - the Mountaineers only lead of the game. Seniors Lauren Powell and Brooke Johnson quickly answered as Powell hit a jumper and Johnson connected on a three-pointer for the first five points of the game. Western Carolina would never trail in the game again. The only Lady Catamount miscue in the first half was shooting just 5-of-14 from the free throw line. The club did bounce back at the charity strip in the second half, missing just three free throws 15-of-18, to end the game 20-of-32. Western Carolina shot a scorching 50 percent from the field in the first half, which afforded the Lady Catamount youngsters to see quality playing time. The starting lineup for WCU played at most 16 minutes in the game allowing Western Carolina’s youth to show their talents on the court. The 19 point lead at the half, 44-25, was the largest of the season for the Lady Catamounts this season. Western Carolina’s 92 points against Appalachian State was the most by the team this season as well. The 37-point margin of victory is also the largest of the year. Western Carolina ended the game shooting 47.8 percent from the field and scored 30 of its points off Mountaineer turnovers. The Lady Catamounts also got 54 of its 92 points from their bench.

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Western Carolina women’s basketball shot 70.8 percent from the field in the second half, and freshman guard Kaila’Shea Menendez scored a career-high 20 points, as the Lady Catamounts defeated Furman 83-74 Monday in Timmons Arena. The Lady Catamounts improve to 8-6 overall and 4-2 in the Southern Conference while the Paladins fall to 8-7 and 2-4 in the SoCon. Down by as much as seven in the second half, Western Carolina battled Furman for the first 14 minutes until it cut the lead by one, 45-44, with a three-pointer by Lauren Powell. But just like most of the game, Furman had an answer with Lee Stephens hitting one of two free throws to put the Paladins up by two. Menendez came down the other end of the court and was fouled, draining two free throws for the fourth tie of the game. Western Carolina would tie the game three more times, before Menendez struck again hitting a bucket and getting fouled. She connected on the old fashioned three-point play to give the Lady Catamounts a one point lead, 63-62. The lead was all Western Carolina needed, going on a 7-0 run to build a five point lead. Furman cut the Lady Catamount’s lead to two, when Kelly O’Conner hit a threepointer with 4:46 remaining, but WCU started to answer buckets as well, and reeled off nine straight points to enjoy an 11-point lead, it’s largest of the night. Furman got no closer then seven points the rest of the game. Menendez scored 18 of her career-high 20 points in the second half. She shot 7-of-9 from the field, 1-of-1 from the three-point line and was a perfect 5-of-5 from the free throw line. She bested her former career-high of 17 points which she set against Appalachian State January 3.

CULLOWHEE, N.C. -- Western Carolina women’s basketball fell to Southern Conference rival Chattanooga 84-71 Monday in the Ramsey Center. The Lady Catamounts fall to 8-8 and 4-4 in the Southern Conference while the Mocs improve to 11-6 and 7-1 in the SoCon. The Mocs scorched Western Carolina from behind the three-point line, which turned out to be one of the key difference makers in the game. After hitting three treys in the first half, Chattanooga lit up the court with eight three-pointers in the second half to end the game with 11. After a poor shooting night against Samford on January 10, Western Carolina did bounce back in its shooting percentage against Chattanooga. The Lady Catamounts, after shooting just over 20 percent against the Bulldogs, shot about its average of 42.6 percent against the Mocs. Western Carolina came out blazing to start the game scoring the first seven points of the contest. Chattanooga answered with the next seven points to tie the game. The Lady Catamounts built a 22-13 nine point lead with 11:54 to go before Chattanooga closed out the half on a 24-10 run to lead 37-32. The Lady Catamounts opened the second half on a 4-0 run to cut the Chattanooga lead down to one point, 37-36, before Erin Ogan drained a three-pointer from the left side. A lay-up by Kendra Eaton and a free throw by Jessica Jackson helped Western Carolina cut the Mocs’ lead back to one again, but a pair of Shanara Hollinquest free throws pushed the lead back to three and Chattanooga was never threatened again. Western Carolina did keep the Chattanooga advantage below double digits for the first eight minutes of the game but a three-pointer by Andrea Neil pushed the Chattanooga lead to 10 with 11:35 left. Twice in the final five minutes a free throw by Jackson and a bucket by Feemster trimmed the Mocs lead to single digits, nine points, but Chattanooga always had an answer to push its lead back to double digits.

CULLOWHEE, N.C. -- Western Carolina women’s basketball had three score in double figures, and halted a two-game losing streak, with a 57-49 win over UNC Greensboro Saturday in the Ramsey Center. Senior center Brooke Johnson led Western Carolina with 15 points, all in the second half, and just missed a double-double with nine rebounds. Johnson also had three blocks against UNC Greensboro moving into second place in the Lady Catamount record books for blocks in a career with 103. Junior Kristen Feemster followed in double figure scoring, tying her career-high with 14 points and also had eight boards. Sophomore Emily Clarke rounded out the double figure scoring with 13 points. Clarke’s offensive outburst in the first half drug Western Carolina out of its scoring drought in the first half. After Feemster hit a layup to tie the game at four, with 16:20 left in the first half, the Lady Catamounts did not score again for seven minutes until Clarke connected on a jumper with 9:39 on the clock, allowing UNCG to build a 10-point advantage Clarke proceeded to score 11 straight points for the Lady Catamounts and cut the UNCG lead to three when she nailed a three-pointer with 6:24 left. The Spartans built its lead back to seven points twice, before Western Carolina scored the final four points of the half, thanks to a pair of free throws by Kendra Carroll and a lay-up by Heather Swayne. The Lady Catamounts trailed by three, 27-24, at the half.

ELON, N.C. -- Senior forward Kendra Eaton scored a season-high 17 points leading Western Carolina women’s basketball to a 78-50 victory over Elon Monday in Alumni Gym. Eaton was one of four Western Carolina players to score in double figures in the contest. Eaton had 10 points in the first half, scoring her final seven in the second. Fellow senior Brooke Johnson recorded her second double-double of the season with 11 points and 12 rebounds, with 10 of the boards on the defensive end. Kaila’Shea Menendez had 12 points and senior Lauren Powell added 10. Western Carolina held a nine-point advantage, 35-26, at the half and exploded in the second half building as much as a 30-point lead on the Phoenix. The Lady Catamounts held the Phoenix to 18 field goals, on 65 attempts, and 27.7 percent from the field. After connecting on 10 field goals in the first half, Elon only had eight in the second. Elon took advantage of its trips to free throw line hitting 13-of-19 from the charity stripe. Seven of the Phoenix’s first nine points in the second half were made at the free throw line. Western Carolina went on a 34-16 run in the first 12 minutes of the second half to take a slim nine-point lead and balloon it to 20 points. In that span, Elon made just three field goals. The Lady Catamounts shot 47 percent from the field and was 70.6 (12-of-17) from the free throw line. Western Carolina also had 47 rebounds in the contest, 35 on the defensive side.

CULLOWHEE, N.C. -- Brooke Johnson, a senior center, scored a game-high 22 points, and also notched her second-straight double-double with 11 rebounds, to lead Western Carolina women’s basketball to a 72-66 victory over Davidson Monday. The Lady Catamounts improve to 11-8 and 7-4 in the Southern Conference while the Wildcats fall to 8-13 and 7-5 in the SoCon. After leading by one point, 37-36, at halftime, Western Carolina built as much as a five point lead, 43-38, early in the second half before Davidson went on a 14-4 run to take a five-point lead, 52-47, with 9:47 left. Western Carolina continued to battle and cut Davidson’s lead to one, 59-60, when Johnson drained a three-pointer at the top of the key. The Lady Catamounts took the lead for the first time in the second half, since the 11:22 mark, when Johnson hit a pair of free throws with 5:00 left in the game. After a missed lay-up by Emily Clarke gave Davidson the ball back, senior Lauren Powell stole the ball, but her three-point attempt was wide, and Davidson’s Ashley Lax pulled down the rebound. Powell turned up her pursuit and again stole the ball. With 1:31 left, junior Kristen Feemster spotted Jessica Jackson open on the right side, and Jackson nailed a three-pointer that all but iced the game. Davidson’s Alex Thompson again trimmed Western Carolina’s lead to two, 68-66 with 1:08 left, but Feemster came back down the court and answered. Feemster hit a layup off an assist buy Johnson, with 22 seconds left, and was also fouled by the Wildcats nailing the free throw to give Western Carolina a comfortable five-point and secure the win. Western Carolina’s scorching 83.3 percent, 15-of-18, from the free throw line in the second half kept the Lady Catamounts in the game when the club went on a scoring drought from the field. The club shot 75 percent from the charity stripe for the game.

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Western Carolina women’s basketball dropped a heart-breaker, 61-56, in overtime to College of Charleston Saturday in the Carolina First Arena. Western Carolina is now 12-14 all-time in overtime games. The loss snaps the club’s three-game winning streak and four-game winning streak on the road. Senior Lauren Powell had a career-high 26 points in the game, scoring 11 in the first half. She was 10-of-12 from the field and five-of-five from the free throw line. Fellow senior Brooke Johnson led the team with 11 rebounds, her third straight double figure rebounding performance. Kristen Feemster scored the first points in overtime for Western Carolina and also hit one of two free throws to give the Lady Catamounts a three-point lead. Three consecutive jumpers by College of Charleston put the Cougars back in front, 57-54, with two minutes left. A jumper by Powell pulled Western Carolina within one point, 57-56, but the Cougars Deidre Jones answered with a lay-up to give the College of Charleston a three-point lead with 34 seconds left. Powell had a chance to tie the game but her three-pointer hit the rim and bounced out with 27 seconds left. Western Carolina was still alive when sophomore Emily Clarke grabbed the rebound but Kaila’Shea Menendez’s jumper didn’t fall and the Cougars got the rebound. Western Carolina forced overtime by overcoming a five-point deficit with three minutes left in regulation. The Cougars were held without a basket in the final 3:31 of the second half. Western Carolina had 23 turnovers and connected on just one three-pointer in the game. College of Charleston scored 18 points off Lady Catamount turnovers.

STATESBORO, Ga. -- Western Carolina women’s basketball’s comeback fell short as the Lady Catamounts (11-10, 7-6 SoCon) dropped a close contest to Georgia Southern (148, 9-4 SoCon), 67-62, Monday in Hanner Fieldhouse. The Lady Catamounts had three players score in double figures, and made a fast and furious comeback late in the game, but the club was plagued by free throw woes. Western Carolina was 5-of-10 from the free throw line in the second half and 12-of-20 for the game. Senior Lauren Powell led Western Carolina with 13 points and sophomore Emily Clarke followed with 12. Senior Brooke Johnson notched her third double-double in four games with 11 points and 11 rebounds; it was also her fourth straight game with double figure rebounds. Western Carolina had a chance to tie or take the lead when Kristen Feemster was fouled with 3:31 left. She missed both free throws and Georgia Southern’s Ashley Melson came down and hit a jumper to push the Eagle’s lead back to three, 57-54. Johnson cut the Eagle lead to one again, 57-56 with a jumper with 2:43 left but Georgia Southern again had an answer with a three-pointer by Jamie Navarro. Powell was fouled with 1:13 missing the front end of a one and one and Georgia Southern grabbed the rebound. It was one of five key missed free throws by Western Carolina during a stretch when Georgia Southern went five minutes without a field goal. Trailing by five with 19 seconds remaining, Jessica Jackson hit a pair of free throws to cut the Eagles’ lead to three, 63-60. Georgia Southern was 4-of-4 from the free throw line to close out the game and keep Western Carolina at bay ending the game 22-of-27.

CULLOWHEE, N.C. -- Western Carolina women’s basketball (11-11) dropped its final non-conference contest of the season, falling 73-64, to Clemson (13-11) Wednesday in the Ramsey Center. Senior guard Lauren Powell led all scorers with 20 points; the second time in three games the Asheville, N.C. native has scored 20 or more points. Powell moves into 10th place in the Catamount record books for scoring with 1,259. She also hit the 200 mark in made three-pointers in her career. Fellow senior Kendra Eaton notched her first double-double of the season, and the second of her career, with 15 points and 11 rebounds. She was 6-of-9 from the field and 3-of-4 from the free throw line. Western Carolina struggled early as it lost the inside presence of Brooke Johnson who picked up two quick fouls in the first three minutes of the game. The Lady Catamounts played the rest of the first half without Johnson, who ended the game playing just eight minutes, and was held scoreless for the first time this season. The Lady Catamounts were down by as much as 12 points twice in the first half, trailing 27-15, with 7:08 left. Western Carolina went on an 11-4 run in the final seven minutes to trail by five, 31-26, at the half. Western Carolina shot 36.8 percent from the field and gave up 20 points to Clemson off 18 turnovers. Clemson’s bench also scored 26 of its points. Two other Western Carolina players scored in double figures in the game. Sophomore Emily Clarke had 12 points and fellow sophomore Kendra Carroll added 10 points.

CULLOWHEE, N.C. -- Western Carolina women’s basketball pulled down a season-high 55 rebounds, and held Furman to a season-low in scoring by an opponent, defeating the Paladins 57-42 Monday in the Ramsey Center. Senior forward Kendra Eaton led all scorers with 15 points and just missed a doubledouble with eight rebounds. Fellow senior Lauren Powell added 10 points for the Lady Catamounts. Furman rejected eight of Western Carolina’s shots, with eight blocked shots in the game, led by Katie Johnson who had three. The Paladins, however, couldn’t convert, shooting an anemic 27.1 percent from the field. The Paladin’s only led twice in the game, first in the opening 50 seconds of the contest when Candace Powell hit a three-pointer, to make the score 3-2. Western Carolina reclaimed the lead with a three-pointer by Powell, and Furman took short lead again, when Lee Stephens hit a jumper to make it 12-11. A jumper by Kendra Carroll gave the advantage back to Western Carolina, with 12:20 left in the first half, and the Lady Catamounts never trailed again. The Lady Catamount lead hovered in the single digits for the rest of the first half and with two seconds left, Western Carolina led by eight points, 28-20. Junior guard Jessica Jackson was fouled shooting a three-pointer, and drained all three free throws, to give Western Carolina a double-digit lead heading into halftime, 31-20. Furman could never cut the Western Carolina lead to single digits again. Western Carolina built as much as a 20-point lead in the second half and only allowed Furman to score 22 points in the final 20 minutes.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Western Carolina women’s basketball escaped UNC Greensboro with a 66-58 victory over the Spartans in overtime Saturday at Fleming Gym. It is the second overtime game this season for Western Carolina, with the Lady Catamounts falling at College of Charleston 61-56 on January 31. WCU is now 12-14 all-time in overtime games. The Lady Catamounts had a five point lead, 46-41, with 27 seconds left in the game, after a pair of Emily Clarke free throws, when the Spartans’ Lakiah Hyson drained a three-pointer with 16 seconds left. Sophomore Kendra Carroll was fouled and hit both free throws to push the WCU lead back to four, 48-44. UNCG came through with a clutch three-pointer, this time by Gini Grimsley, to narrow the Western Carolina lead to one, 48-47. With eight seconds left, senior Lauren Powell was fouled, but she hit just one of two free throws, giving Western Carolina a precarious two point advantage, 49-47. UNC Greensboro forced overtime when Hyson fought through the Western Carolina defenders to hit a jumper with four seconds left and tie the game at 49. Western Carolina retook the lead in overtime off a lay-up by Kristen Feemster. The Catamounts never trailed in the overtime, thanks to a pair of three-pointer by Jessica Jackson and Lauren Powell, and 5-of-6 shooting from the free throw line. Powell led the club with 13 points, the only Lady Catamount to score in double figures. Johnson had three blocks in the contest and now has 113 in her career, needing 15 to break the school record (127) for blocks in a career.

CULLOWHEE, N.C. -- Kristen Feemster had a career-highs in points (16) and rebounds (12) in the second double-double performance and first start of her career, leading Western Carolina women’s basketball to a 77-61 victory over Elon Monday in the Ramsey Center. On a night when Western Carolina struggled offensively from the field, shooting 44.4 percent, the Lady Catamounts made up for it on the boards with a season-high 57 team rebounds. The club had 39 boards on the defensive glass to aid Western Carolina in winning its season-high fourth consecutive game. Feemster was the bright spot to open the game, relishing the first start of her career. She scored the first six Western Carolina points to start the game. After an early 2-0 lead, Elon took the advantage on the scoreboard and led for the first 16 minutes of the first half. The Lady Catamounts took just its second lead of the half off a lay-up by Diamond Hunnicutt. The score was tied for the 11th and 12th time in the game to start the second half before Western Carolina took the lead for good after a pair of free throws by senior center Brooke Johnson. The Lady Catamounts went on a 14-4 run in the first 10 minutes of the second half to build a 10-point advantage, 51-41. Elon would battle back and go on a 10-3 run to cut the Lady Catamount’s lead to three, 54-51, with 8:05 left. Western Carolina was 5-of-8 from the free throw line and got key three-point buckets from Jessica Jackson, who also dished out a career-high seven assists, and Heather Swayne to keep the Phoenix from rising.

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- Heather Swayne drained a pair of free throws, with two seconds left, to lift Western Carolina women’s basketball to a 56-52 upset victory over Chattanooga Saturday in the McKenzie Arena. Chattanooga had a chance to tie the game with four seconds left, when senior guard LaCondra Mason was fouled. Mason missed both free throws and Swayne ripped down the rebound, and was fouled, to place her on the line draining both free throws to ice the game. Western Carolina didn’t hit a field goal in the last four minutes of the game, but the Lady Catamounts kept their lead thanks to the free throw line. The club was 5-of-7 in the final four minutes to keep the Mocs at bay. The Lady Catamounts led the entire game beginning with a lay-up by senior Lauren Powell to open the contest. The score was tied just once, when Chattanooga knotted the game at 12 thanks to a Jenaya Wade-Fray three-pointer with 11:57 left in the first. Diamnond Hunnicutt drained a pair of free throws to give Western Carolina a 14-12 advantage and the Lady Catamounts never trailed in the contest again. WCU lead by six, 28-22, at the half. Chattanooga opened the second half with a Shanara Hollinquest lay-up to cut WCU’s lead to four, 28-24. Powell answered with a monster three-pointer to push the lead back to seven. Powell’s three-pointer was one of four dagger treys by Western Carolina, all in the second half. After Powell’s three, Johnson followed with a long-ball of her own and then Swayne hit two in the contest. Three Lady Catamounts scored in double figures and the team was paced by Swayne’s season-high 13 points. Brooke Johnson and freshman Kaila’Shea Menendez each had 10 points. The WCU victory halted Chattanooga’s 24-game home winning streak.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Western Carolina women’s basketball knocked of Southern Conference leader Samford, 55-53, Monday in the Pete Hanna Center. The victory is the sixth straight for Western Carolina, which could easily earn the Lady Catamounts the manacle of “hottest team entering the Southern Conference Tournament.” Should the club win on Saturday, against Wofford, they are all but assured a third seed in the Southern Conference Tournament. It was another nail-biter for Western Carolina, and for the second straight game, it all came down to free throws. Clinging to a precarious one point lead, 54-53, with 2.8 seconds left, the Lady Catamounts Jessica Jackson was fouled and earned a trip to the charity stripe for two shots. The foul by Samford put Western Carolina in the double bonus and she got two shots. Jackson missed the first free throw but connected on the second. Samford couldn’t get a shot off in the final 2.8 seconds and Western Carolina won the game. Western Carolina looked to be enjoying a semi-comfortable four point advantage, 54-50, with 15 seconds left. The Lady Catamounts continued their tenacious defense, but the Bulldogs’ Emily London threw up what looked appeared to be a desperation three-point shot, left handed, that miraculously fell in to keep Samford alive; and set up the final dramatics of the game. Leading by one, with 3:34 left, Lauren Powell drained a pair of free throws to push the lead back to three, 51-48. Then again after Savannah Hill hit two free throws with 1:07 left, Brooke Johnson came down and fought through the Samford defense for a lay-up and push the lead back to three again, 53-50. Western Carolina shot 42 percent from the field and held Samford to 34.6. It is also the second straight game Western Carolina has held its opponent below 60 points. Powell led Western Carolina with 13 points and Emily Clarke had a steady eight points and eight rebounds. Samford’s Emily London led all scorers with 24.

Chattanooga, Tenn. -- No. 3 seed Western Carolina women’s basketball won its eighth-straight game and picked up its 19th victory, but more importantly, knocked off No. 11 seed Elon (5-26) 71-52 in the quarter-finals of the Southern Conference Tournament Saturday in McKenzie Arena. The Lady Catamounts (19-11) advance to the semifinals of the tournament to face No. 2 seed Samford at 2:30 p.m. Sunday on SportSouth. Nine Western Carolina players scored at least five points apiece and the Lady Catamounts were led by sophomore guard Kendra Carroll who had 12 points on 4-for-5 shooting, including 3-for-4 from behind the 3-point line. Also scoring in double digits for Western was senior Lauren Powell, who had 10 points and five rebounds. After trailing 35-28 at halftime, the Phoenix came out and hit a quick three to cut the lead to four. However, the Catamounts went on a short 6-0 run to push the score out to 10. From there the score never got below eight again as Western cruised to a 19-point victory. For the game, the Catamounts held the Phoenix to only 28.6 percent (16-for-56) shooting and out-rebounded them by 14. Western Carolina also altered many Elon shots, recording a season-high eight blocks for the game. The Catamounts held a 38-10 edge in bench scoring.

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - Western Carolina captured its 20th win of the season, but more importantly, the 66-53 victory over No. 2 seed Samford (22-7), in the semi-finals of the Southern Conference Tournament, earned the Lady Catamounts its third-straight trip to the SoCon Finals. The Lady Catamounts will face No. 4 seed College of Charleston at 3 p.m. Monday in the McKenzie Arena and will be televised on SportSouth. It is the third-straight year Western Carolina (20-11) has won 20 or more games under Head Coach Kellie Harper. The Lady Catamounts have now reached the finals of the tournament five out of the last six years. Samford (22-7) led by as many as seven in the first half going up 25-18 with 2:29 to play on a Monica Maxwell free throw. Emily London’s two free throws with 20 seconds left gave the Bulldogs a 29-25 halftime margin. The Lady Catamounts stormed out of intermission with a 15-2 run to take control of the game on a Kristen Feemster lay-up to make it 42-33 at 13:49. The Bulldogs closed to within four, 48-44, on a lay-up by London at the 10-minute mark. But the Lady Catamounts were not to be denied. WCU took its largest lead of 15 points, 66-51, on two Johnson free throws with 1:35 left in the game before settling for the 66-53 win. Western Carolina dominated from the inside, out-scoring Samford 34-18 in the paint and out-rebounding the Bulldogs 33-20. The Catamounts registered 13 second chance points to zero for Samford. The Bulldogs were led by Chiki Okoli with 16 points. Maxwell chipped in 10 points while tying for game-high honors with six boards.

Chattanooga, Tenn. -- It took three overtimes, 101 points and clutch free throws down the stretch, but Western Carolina women’s basketball weathered it all, to capture the 2009 Southern Conference Tournament Title in McKenzie Arena Monday. The No. 3 seeeded Lady Catamounts (21-11) defeated No. 4 seed College of Charleston (23-8) 101-87. Western Carolina took the lead to start the third OT when senior Eaton was fouled after the tip. She drained one of two free throws, to put the Lady Catamount up by one, 86-85. The Cougars quickly retook the lead off a Deidera Jones lay-up with 3:46 remaining. The Lady Catamounts 14-0 run to close out the third overtime began with a monster three-pointer by Heather Swayne to put WCU up 89-87 with 3.24 left. Southern Conference Tournament MVP Brooke Johnson scored seven of the Lady Catamounts final 10 points, to close out the game, and give Head Coach Kellie Harper her second tournament championship. Western Carolina was down by 12 points (37-25) at the half and down by as much as 15 to start the second. The tide looked to have turned in Western Carolina’s favor after building an eight point advantage, 61-53, with 6:53 left. Western Carolina was up by five points with 25 seconds remaining when College of Charleston’s Tonia Gerty drained a three-pointer to cut it to 70-68. The Lady Catamounts turned the ball over, and Gerty hit a lay-up with two seconds remaining, to tie the game at 70 and force the first overtime. The Lady Catamounts were down by two with 1.8 seconds remaining in the first overtime when Powell was fouled to put her on the free throw line. Powell calmly drained both free throws to tie the game at 78 and force the second overtime. The game set several tournament records. . The game was the third-highest scoring game in SoCon Tournament history. Western Carolina’s 101 points was also just the third 100-point game in tournament history.

Vanderbilt (25-8), in the NCAA tournament for the 10th straight year, made its second straight trip to Albuquerque. Last year, the Commodores beat Montana and West Virginia to advance to the regional semifinals. Lauren Powell and Brooke Johnson led Western Carolina (21-12) with eight points apiece. The Lady Catamounts shot just 28 percent (16-of-57) from the floor. Western Carolina scored seven straight points to pull within 41-29 and force a timeout by Commodores coach Melanie Balcomb at the 12:22 mark. But Wirth quickly ended Western’s spurt with a jumper in the lane, then hit two 3-pointers and drove for another bucket as Vanderbilt went on a 12-2 burst that put the Commodores ahead 53-31 with 9:31 to go. Not only that, Wirth often drew the defensive assignment against Johnson, Western Carolina’s 6-foot-4 forward, who averaged 18.3 points and nine rebounds during the Southern Conference tournament. Johnson scored six of her eight points in the second half. She was 3-of-11 from the field with seven rebounds. Vanderbilt took control in the first half, using an 11-2 run over the last 6:16 of the opening 20 minutes to lead 29-18 at the break.

LISTON B. RAMSEY REGINAL ACTIVITY CENTER Home of the Catamounts Western Carolina women’s basketball team will play its 21st season in the Liston B. Ramsey Regional Activity Center this year. The team had the distinction of playing the first official basketball game in the Ramsey Center when they hosted Mars Hill College on December 4, 1986. The inaugural men’s / women’s doubleheader in the Ramsey Center followed two days later, December 6, when WCU’s women hosted Coastal Carolina before the men’s team hosted North Carolina State. The event attracted a standing-room-only crowd of 8,114. The Ramsey Center was completed in April 1986 and is the largest facility of its type west of Charlotte, N.C. It contains 205,000 square feet of usable space and was built at a cost of $16.3 million. In addition to housing the athletic department’s administrative offices, coaches’ offices, team locker rooms, and meeting facilities, it also contains an auxiliary gymnasium, handball and racquetball courts, a communications center, a firing range and weight rooms. The Lady Catamount’s moved into their new locker room facilities (pictured below) prior to the start of practice for the 2005-06 season. The Ramsey Center was designed to accommodate cultural, entertainment, recreational, and athletic events and can seat up to 8,556 for major concerts. During its first 11 years of operation, nearly 1.5 million people attended activities in the facility. The past several years have demonstrated the facility’s flexibility as it has hosted a rodeo, numerous theatrical performances, a Broadway musical, graduation ceremonies, Mountain Heritage Day festivities, and musical concerts from such contemporary acts as the Charlie Daniels Band, Jars of Clay, Blessed Union of Souls, Tracy Byrd, Terri Clark, Aerosmith, Tim McGraw, and the Allman Brothers Band. The facility also serves as Western Carolina’s home competition venue for volleyball and men’s and women’s basketball teams. The building was named for Liston B. Ramsey, former Speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives and longtime representative of the 52nd House District that includes Haywood, Madison, Swain, Graham and Jackson counties.

The Lady Catamounts moved into a new locker room facility prior to the start of 2005-06 practices. The new locker room includes wooden lockers, new carpeting, radio/CD player sound system, and a separate team video room, with terraced flooring for a stadium-type seating effect.

Dr. John W. Bardo

CHANCELLOR 73

Western Carolina University Chancellor

During his 13 years as Western Carolina University’s chancellor, Dr. John W. Bardo has propelled Western into the national spotlight as a university that is preparing students to face the challenges of the 21st century. Since becoming the 10th chief executive officer in Western’s history, Dr. Bardo has been a driving force in the University’s growing status across North Carolina and the nation as a leader in the application of the tools of technology to teaching and learning. During his decade of leadership, student enrollment has soared 21.8 percent, the average SAT scores of entering freshmen have risen by 62 points and student retention rates are higher than ever. At Dr. Bardo’s suggestion, the university community agreed to require incoming freshmen to have networkable computers, and in 1997 Western became the first institution in the University of North Carolina system to adopt that requirement, and is now moving to increase wireless networking capabilities on campus. Similarly, it was at Dr. Bardo’s urging that Western established a residential Honors College, the first in the UNC system. The Honors College, which began in 1997 with about 70 students, now enrolls more than 900 high-achieving students who welcome the challenge of advanced academic classes and competition for national and international scholarships. More recently, Dr. Bardo has emphasized the importance of service learning, which encourages faculty and staff to incorporate service to the community in many forms as a part of students’ academic experiences at Western. A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Dr. Bardo also has engineered a university wide effort to “raise the bar” of academic standards at Western. Faculty members have increased their expectations of student performance, and students are rising to meet those expectations. That emphasis on increased academic quality is earning the attention of some of North Carolina’s brightest young scholars, increasing the number of National Merit finalists and high school valedictorians interested in Western. Under Dr. Bardo’s leadership, the university has increasingly turned its attention toward reaching out to the citizens of Western North Carolina and promoting economic development as a means of improving the quality of life for the area’s residents. Western’s new $8 million Center for Applied Technology is designed to address critical labor force issues facing the region by providing educational programs that will support emerging high-tech, “new economy” industries. Recently developed programs include undergraduate and graduate degrees in entrepreneurship, a degree in construction management, and approval for joint programs in electrical and computer engineering with Charlotte. In addition, the university has formed strategic partnerships with several regional universities in the fields of biotechnology, bioinformatics and micro-optics. As construction is completed on Western’s new “signature” building, a $30 million Fine and Performing Arts Center, the university has taken numerous steps to boost heritage and cultural tourism in the mountain region, including the establishment of a new performance series of music and art. Prior to his appointment at WCU, Dr. Bardo had been vice president for academic affairs at Bridgewater State College in Massachusetts since 1990. He assumed the dual role of provost of the public institution in 1993. Like Western Carolina, Bridgewater State was

founded in the 19th century as a normal school for the training of teachers and today is a state-supported regional, comprehensive institution. Before moving to Massachusetts, Dr. Bardo held senior administrative posts at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, serving as assistant to the president for planning and as provost and vice president for academic affairs. A sociologist, he had previously accumulated a decade of teaching and administrative experience at Southwest Texas State University and Wichita State University. Dr. Bardo graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 1970 with a degree in economics. He holds a master’s degree in sociology from Ohio University, and earned a doctorate in the field from The Ohio State University. A graduate of the Institute for Educational Management at Harvard University, he also has been a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at Monash University in Australia and a guest visiting professor at the University College of Wales at Swansea. He has written extensively and lectured widely on urban and community sociology, higher education, organizational behavior, economic development, quantitative methods, and the educational applications of technology. Dr. Bardo is currently serving a four-term term of service on the NCAA’s Minority Opportunities and Interests Committee. The 12-member committee is charged with conducting reviews of issues related to the interests of ethnic minority student-athletes, NCAA minority programs and NCAA policies that affect ethnic minorities. In fall 2004, Dr. Bardo was appointed to serve one year as chairman of the committee on economic and work force development for the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. The committee, composed of presidents and chancellors of AASCU member institutions, is one of six established by the association’s board of directors to advance its work in the arena of public higher education. Dr. Bardo and his wife, Deborah, have one son, Christopher.

ATHLETIC DIRECTOR

Chip Smith

Western Carolina University Director of Athletics Western Carolina Chancellor Dr. John W. Bardo announced on August 23, 2004 the selection of Chip Smith as the Catamounts’ Director of Athletics. His first year on the job at Western was an eventful one as Western’s football team won the Old Mountain Jug with a 30-27 victory over Appalachian State in the fall of 2004, the Lady Catamount basketball team won the 2005 Southern Conference tournament championship and the WCU soccer team won the 2005 SoCon tournament title. In the spring, Western hosted the 2005 SoCon Outdoor Track & Field Championships, which was lauded for its organization and atmosphere. In 2006-07 under Smith’s watch, Western won the Women’s Golf Tournament, a share of the Women’s Basketball regular season title, Men’s Outdoor Track & Field Championship, and a share of the Baseball regular season title before garnering an at large bid to the NCAA Field of 64, advancing to the Chapel Hill Regional Final. Most recently, the men’s golf team garnered its first-ever, at-large bid to the NCAA Championship tournament while the track & field teams took three of the four titles. In addition to overseeing the start of a new program (softball and the construction of the program’s new stadium), Smith laid the foundation for the success of three sports, hiring head coaches for men’s basketball, volleyball and soccer during 2005. A review of Western Carolina’s 2005-06 athletic year shows that foundation was solid. In addition to winning Southern Conference championships in soccer, men’s indoor track & field, men’s outdoor track & field and softball, Western played for a share of the SoCon title in football, falling to eventual national champion Appalachian State in the final regular-season game, and the Catamount baseball team was the only school in the nation to have non-conference road wins over two 2006 College World Series teams (Clemson and Georgia). WCU student-athletes earned a league-best 118 All-SoCon honors on the field, not including numerous SoCon academic honors and four SoCon Coach of the Year selections. Off the field, in addition to accumulating 1,537 hours of community service, Catamount student-athletes have posted a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.01 for their careers. Smith came to Western after two years as athletics director at Morehead State. He additionally was director of athletics at Eastern Kentucky University, as well as holding positions in the athletics departments at Virginia Military Institute, UNC Charlotte and University of North Carolina. A native of Greensboro who grew up in Siler City, Smith earned his bachelor’s degree in education at North Carolina in 1978, where he played football for four years under legendary coach Bill Dooley. He earned his master’s degree in athletics administration at North Carolina in 1989. He began his career in athletics as a high school teacher and coach, first at Hickory High School and then at Garinger High School in Charlotte. He worked as ticket manager for the Durham Bulls baseball club before joining the Educational Foundation Inc., at North Carolina in 1983 as assistant to the executive director of the athletics fund-raising organization also known as the Rams Club. Smith was a member of the athletics department administration at UNC Charlotte from 1984 though 1991, first as business and ticket manager, then as assistant athletic director for development. He joined the staff of Southern Conference member VMI in 1991 as assistant athletics director, advancing to associate athletics director. He joined the administration at Eastern Kentucky University in 1999, rising to the position

of director of athletics in 2001. He has served as director of athletics at Morehead State since August 2002. Smith is married to the former Gale Thompson, who swam collegiately at North Carolina. They have two children; daughter Chesley (23), who is a 2009 graduate of UNC Greensboro, and a son, Cort (19), who graduated from Smoky Mountain High School.


WCU HOME OF STUDENT-ATHLETES 75

W estern C arolina U ni v ersity . . . A Home of TrUe Student-Athletes Western Carolina University is committed to helping its student-athletes both on and off the playing field. WCU treasures its outstanding academic reputation and is equally proud of the tradition of its athletic teams. Realizing the important role that sport plays in the lives of our studentathletes, the Office of Academic Support Services for Student-Athletes, in conjunction with the Office of Academic Advising assist student-athletes with managing their athletic demands without sacrificing their academic careers. WCU Department of Athletics has always understood the primacy of academics and maintains a close working relationship with both offices of academic support. The Office of Academic Support Services for Student-Athletes reports to the Athletic Director and is committed to: (1) Ensuring that each student-athlete at WCU continues to make academic progress towards graduation as well as maintaining athletic eligibility; (2) Ensuring that every student-athlete be provided the necessary resources needed to be academically successful; (3) Striving to assist each student-athlete with reaching their fullest potential as young adults in achieving their career and life goals. The Academic Support Services staff is responsible for monitoring the academic progress and class attendance of all student-athletes and coordinating the Academic Enhancement Program. The Academic Enhancement Program (AEP) offers academic resources to its studentathletes to give them the best opportunity for continued success in the classroom. All first semester freshmen and transfers and are required to participate in the program. Catamount student-athletes are provided with tutorial services and educational and career workshops. In conjunction with AEP, the Catamount football team also employs the Academic Game Plan (AGP), which includes each first-year, and all at risk football student-athletes. The program includes organizing daily activities such as reading, tests and quizzes into a notebook that aids in managing time and prioritizing academic responsibilities. In addition, coaches, serving as mentors, hold detailed, hour-long meetings with the student-athletes included in AGP on a daily basis to monitor progress and to stay involved. The Office of Academic Advising is part of a larger academic support program known as the Office of Advising and Retention Services which has a fundamental responsibility for enhancing the educational experience for all students. All freshmen student-athletes are advised by a specific academic advisor through enrollment in USI 130, Academic and Career Planning, a one-hour elective course. Through this course, students learn about WCU academic programs and policies, NCAA academic regulations, gain a better understanding of the meaning of higher education, learn more about themselves, and make new friends. All student-athletes are advised by the athletic advisor until they formally declare a major. Exemplifying their commitment to academic excellence and emphasis across the department is apparent in the increasing number of student-athletes recognized for scholastic merit. For the 2004-05 year, 112 WCU student-athletes qualified for the Southern Conference Academic Honor Roll, which honors student-athletes who have participated in at least one sport and have earned a 3.0 or better grade point average during the past academic year. In 2007-08, a school-record

Former defensive end Nick McNeil (left) and quarterback Brian Gaither (right) are pictured with WCU Chancellor Dr. John Bardo after graduation ceremonies. McNeil and Gaither were both named All-Southern Conference as seniors and both signed NFL contracts.

143 Western Carolina student-athletes were named to the SoCon Academic Honor Roll. WCU also possessed four student-athletes who posted a 4.0 grade point average for the entire school year. In 2008-09, between the three seasons in which academic accolades are handed out by the SoCon office – fall, winter and spring – Western Carolina boasted a league-high 80 Academic All-Conference team selections including 24 in the fall, 23 in the winter and 33 this spring. Back in 2007-08, WCU led the conference with 81 student-athletes recognized across the three seasons – 25 in the fall, 22 in the winter and 34 in the Spring. Western also had a conference-leading 11 SoCon Student-Athlete of the Week honors a year ago. Since 2000, Western has produced five Academic All-America selections including Ryan Schade (baseball in 2002); Jason Whaley (football in 2003); Yoneko Allen (women’s basketball in 2004); Tyler Sexton (baseball in 2006, ‘07); and Brooke Johnson (women’s basketball in 2008, ‘09). Whaley was also the recipient of an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship from the National Football Foundation. During that same span, a trio of Catamounts (Allen, Emre Atsur, and Rans Brempong) have been recipients of the Southern Conference’s Mike Wood Postgraduate Scholarship, while track athlete Tonya Edmunds was one of 32 NCAA student-athletes to be awarded a postgraduate scholarship through its Ethnic Minority and Women’s Enhancement Postgraduate Scholarship Programs for 2005-06. In 2006, Emily Pierce (women’s soccer) was awarded the SoCon’s David Knight Graduate Scholarship and the WCU soccer team was recognized by the NCAA as the team ranked among the sport’s top 10 percent in Academic Progress Rate (APR). Off the field for the 2008-09 academic year, in addition to accumulating 3,800 hours of community service, Catamount student-athletes posted a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.01 for their careers. Bolstering that GPA were a combined 34, 4.0 GPA’s in the Fall of 2008 and Spring of 2009 semesters and a combined total of 202 Dean’s List honors between the two semesters.

SOUTHERN CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONS 2005 / 2009


HISTORY


The Southern Conference, which began its 89th season of intercollegiate competition in 2009, is a national leader in emphasizing the development of the student-athlete and in helping to build lifelong leaders and role models. The Southern Conference has been on the forefront of innovation and originality in developing creative solutions to address issues facing intercollegiate athletics. From establishing the first conference basketball tournament (1921), tackling the issue of freshmen eligibility (1922), developing women’s championships (1984), to becoming the first conference to install the three-point goal in basketball (1980), the Southern Conference has been a pioneer. The Southern Conference is the nation’s fifth-oldest NCAA Division I collegiate athletic association. Only the Big Ten (1896), the Missouri Valley (1907), the Pacific 10 (1915) and the Southwestern Athletic (1920) conferences are older in terms of origination. Academic excellence has been a major part of the Southern Conference’s tradition. Hundreds of Southern Conference student-athletes have been recognized on ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-America and all-district teams. A total of 19 Rhodes Scholarship winners have been selected from conference institutions. The Conference currently consists of 12 members in five states throughout the Southeast and sponsors 19 varsity sports and championships that produce participants for NCAA Division I Championships. The Southern Conference offices are located in the historic Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, S.C. A textile mill that was in operation from 1880 until 1999, Beaumont Mill was renovated in 2004 and today offers the league first class meeting areas and offices as well as a spacious library for storage of the conference’s historical documents. Membership History On Feb. 25, 1921, representatives from 14 of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association’s (SIAA) 30 members met at Atlanta’s Piedmont Hotel to establish the Southern Intercollegiate Conference. On hand at the inaugural meeting were officials from Alabama, Alabama Polytechnic Institute (Auburn), Clemson, Georgia, Georgia School of Technology (Georgia Tech), Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi A&M (Mississippi State), North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Polytechnic Institute (Virginia Tech) and Washington & Lee. Dr. S.V. Sanford of Georgia was chosen as acting chairman and N.W. Dougherty of Tennessee was named secretary. The decision to form a new athletic conference was motivated by the desire to have a workable number of conference games for each league member. With 30 schools in the SIAA by the early 1920s, it was impossible to play every school at least once during the regular season and many schools went several years between playing some conference members. In addition, in 1920, the SIAA voted down proposed rules that an athlete must be in a college a year before playing on its teams and refused to abolish a rule permitting athletes to play summer baseball for money. Play began in the fall of 1921 and a year later, six more schools joined the fledgling league including Tulane (which had attended the inaugural meeting but had elected not to join), Florida, Louisiana (LSU), Mississippi, South Carolina and Vanderbilt. VMI joined in 1925 and Duke was added in 1929. By the 1930s, membership in the Southern Conference had reached 23 schools. C.P. “Sally” Miles of Virginia Tech, president of the Southern Conference, called the annual league meeting to order on Dec. 9, 1932 at the Farragut Hotel in Knoxville, Tenn. Georgia’s Dr. Sanford announced that 13 institutions west and south of the Appalachian Mountains were reorganizing as the Southeastern Conference. Members of the new league included Alabama, Alabama Polytechnic Institute, Florida, Georgia, Georgia School of Technology, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Mississippi A&M, University of the South, Tennessee, Tulane and Vanderbilt. According to the minutes of the meeting, Dr. Sanford stated that the division was made along geographical lines. Florida’s Dr. J.J. Tigert, acting as spokesman for the withdrawing group, regretted the move but believed it was necessary as the Southern Conference had grown too large. The resignations were accepted and the withdrawing schools formed the new league which began play in 1932. The Southern Conference continued with membership of 10 institutions including Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Virginia, VMI, Virginia Tech and Washington & Lee. The second major shift occurred some 20 years later. By 1952, the Southern Conference included 17 colleges and universities. Another split occurred when seven schools including Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest departed to form the Atlantic Coast Conference which began play in 1953. The revamped Southern Conference included members The Citadel, Davidson, Furman, George Washington, Richmond, VMI, Virginia Tech, Washington & Lee, West Virginia and William & Mary. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that includes 12 institutions and a footprint that spans five states: Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Georgia. Current league members are Appalachian State, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Samford, Chattanooga, Western Carolina and Wofford.

DID YOU KNOW? wcu - did you know...? • The Western Carolina women’s basketball team was the Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (CIAW) National Runner-Up in the 1968-69 season and finished fourth the following year in the tournament. • In 1971, Western Carolina hosted the National Women’s Intercollegiate Basketball Tournament in Reid Gymnasium. WCU also hosted an Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW) Southern Region II Tournament in 1975-76, making a total of three apperances in the AIAW tournament, which was the predecessor of the NCAA for women’s collegiate athletics. • The all-time leading scorer in Western Carolina women’s basketball history is Jayne Arledge – she is the niece of the late Roone Arledge, a pioneer in the field of televison journalism and creator of Monday Night Football, 20/20, and Nightline. • Western’s Ronnie Carr made the first 3-point basket in NCAA history. To mark the event, during both of ESPN2’s college basketball games on November 29, 2004 the network featured Carr, who sank that first 3-pointer on Nov. 29, 1980. The 2005-06 season marks the 25th anniversary of the historic shot which has revolutionized the game of basketball. Carr’s historic shot came in Western’s 77-70 victory over Middle Tennessee State and the ball he used is on display at the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass. The shot was made from the left corner of Reid Gym — Western’s facility at the time — with 16:09 left in the first half (7:06 pm). Ironically, Carr wore number 22 and the 3-point arc that first year was 22 feet, instead of the now 19-feet, nine-inches. Carr had the number 22 his freshman season and the 3-point shot did not debut until his sophomore year. Another interesting side note, while Carr made the first 3-pointer in NCAA history, Western Carolina actually played a game one day prior (Nov. 28), defeating the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, 88-77, in Atlanta. However, Carr’s historic shot had to wait one until the following day since the Southern Conference was the only league sanctioned by the NCAA to use the 3-point shot. Carr only took 39 3-pointers during the 1980-81 season, making 15 and earning first team All-Southern Conference honors. As a junior the following year, Carr only took 11 treys, making eight. However, the 1981-82 season, which would be his final year at Western, Carr still led the SoCon in scoring and earned first team All-SoCon honors for a second time. While Carr did not utilize the 3-point shot much, Western led the SoCon in 3-pointers made and attempted during the four-year NCAA/SoCon experiment, making 182-of-450 treys (.404) over the time span. Carr would not be able to play his senior year after having a serious car accident prior to the season’s start. However, Carr served as a student assistant coach that season and would go on to receive “Most Courageous Athlete” award, given by the United States Basketball Writers Association. Despite the accident, Carr was still selected in the 10th round of the NBA draft by the Atlanta Hawks. • Western Carolina was the first predominately white university or college in the South to recruit and sign African-American athletes. Western’s Henry Logan, the basketball program’s all-time leader in points (3,290) and assists (1,037), was the first to break the color barrier in the South, starting his career in 1964-65. In the fall of 1965, Western’s Keith Elliott became the first African-American football player in the South to break the color barrier. • Western Carolina boasts several former student-athletes now playing at the professional level: NBA (Kevin Martin with Sacramento - pictured); NFL (Brad Hoover with Carolina - pictured, three-time Super Bowl winner, David Patten, now with Washington; International basketball (David Berghoefer, Corey Muirhead; Frankie King; Rans Brempong).
