With prior notice, student-athletes will be available for interviews at that time as well. Unless special permission is granted well in advance, no interviews of student-athletes or coaches will be conducted on game days until a 10-minute cooling off period after the contest. Media members may attend practices after obtaining clearance through the media relations office. Media members are asked to refrain from contacting student-athletes at their home or dormitory and student-athletes’ phone numbers will not be released by the WCU Department of Athletics. Out-of-town media may set up phone interviews to be conducted in the Athletics Department. Coach Bobby Moranda may be reached weekday mornings, however, it is asked that a specific interview time be scheduled.

WORKING CREDENTIALS: Newsprint and electronic media representatives planning to cover a baseball game at Western Carolina University are asked to request in written form (E-mail or FAX) working credentials from WCU’s Media Relations Office.

MEET THE 2010 CATAMOUNTS – RETURNING PL AYERS Western Carolina enters the third season under head coach Bobby Moranda looking to build upon the successes of last season that saw the squad finish 35-22, just missing the NCAA post-season – but a squad that lost all three weekend starting pitchers and a trio of underclassmen that factored heavily upon the team’s success each of the past three years.

more Kyle Stewart, red-shirt sophomore Vance Chavis and junior Matt Benedict are the four hurlers expected to bear the brunt of the starting load for WCU this season. However, between the four arms - which includes three right-handers with Chavis the lone southpaw - the group only has 13 career starts with seven made mid-week by Stewart a season ago and Benedict with five mid-week nods.

WCU held out hope to become the first team in SoCon history to earn a second at-large bid to put three league teams in post season after finishing the season strong, winning 13 of its final 19 games including 10 away from home.

“Our starting pitchers are all talented, but still unproven over the course of a season,” Moranda said of his rotation.

“We were just a couple wins away from having a special season last year,” said Moranda of the season a year ago. According to preseason prognostications this year, WCU was tabbed fifth in both of the Southern Conference preseason polls as selected by the head coaches and the voting members of the media. In addition, reigning Southern Conference Freshman of the Year, second baseman Ross Heffley, was selected to the preseason second team. OUTLOOK ON THE 2010 SEASON: As the curtain rises on the 2010 season for the SoCon’s most successful program – 20 combined conference championships and 11 NCAA tournament appearances – Western Carolina finds itself amidst the proving grounds. Role players over the last several seasons will now be thrust to the forefront for the Catamounts to be successful. “Obviously, we don’t have the number of players with proven credentials that we had last season or the year before, but we do have a better team when it comes to executing our system. The ability and depth is there; it’s just not proven yet, but I like our chemistry and chances to be successful,” said Moranda. “Despite the loss of a lot of very talented players, we’ll be stronger defensively and will have more than one player who can play at each position.” All told, the Catamounts return seven players that started 21-or-more games a season ago. But gone are the traditional “big bats” that were once synonymous with Western Carolina baseball. “There is going to be a different look to our baseball team; not only the new players, but our style as well,” said Moranda. “We are not going to count on a couple guys to hit the ball out of the park. It’s going to be a team thing in everything we do from scoring runs, running the bases, defense to successful pitching,” he explained. CATAMOUNT OUTFIELD: The most experienced portion of the Catamount lineup entering the season lies within the trio of outfield positions. Seniors Dylan de Graaf and Trevor Collias will patrol both left and center, with junior Matt Johns - who has played a myriad of positions during his time in Cullowhee - expected to start the season in right field. Collias hit .293 with 10 doubles and eight home runs as season ago, adding 30 stolen bases in 35 attempts to his offensive arsenal. Dylan de Graaf, who hit .298 with six extra base hits and eight stolen bases, is coming off a tremendous off-season and was named a co-captain of the squad entering fall practice. Johns, who enjoyed the team’s longest consecutive-game hit streak a season ago at 22, played 45 of his 54 games at first base. He makes the move to the outfield where he played five games during his freshman campaign.

CATAMOUNT B A S E B A L L 2010

CATAMOUNT INFIELD: Western Carolina’s infield is anchored by Heffley (pictured above) at second base. The reigning SoCon Freshman of the Year is WCU’s best returning bat after hitting .391 last year including a freshman school-record 92 base hits. Opening his rookie campaign in the outfield, Heffley found his way to the infield, playing 13 games at third before starting the final 20 at second base. Heffley was tabbed a Freshman All-American a season ago and was a preseason All-America selection by Collegiate Baseball entering 2010. The only other returning infielder expected to start at the seasons open is senior Tyler Kirkpatrick who made 21 starts on the “hot corner” in 2009. An injury forced Kirkpatrick out of the lineup with since graduated Mitchell Hatley solidifying third base. Kirkpatrick hit .253 a year ago with 16 RBI. Junior transfer Austin Schultz, who hit over .300 in two seasons at Young Harris College, is the leading candidate to take over at shortstop while freshman Tyler White has emerged as the starting first baseman for the Catamounts. CATAMOUNT CATCHERS: Western Carolina will again turn to Stephen Notaro behind the plate as he and junior transfer Ollie Goulder will split time catching. Notaro, who led WCU with 13 home runs to accompany his .287 batting average, will also see time as the designated hitter. Goulder transferred in from Chandler-Gilbert Community College in Chandler, Ariz., where he earned MVP honors a year ago. WCU also returns back-ups in Russell Robertson and Radley Haddad (.417 in 12 AB) behind the dish. CATAMOUNT PITCHING STAFF: Western Carolina enters the opening weekend of its season with four designated starting pitchers according to the Catamount coaching staff. Senior Jason Sullivan, sopho-

The strength of the Catamount staff, though, comes in the latter innings with set-up man junior Brandon Johnson and senior closer, Daniel Ottone (pictured at bottome of page). Johnson was 3-0 with one save a season ago in 20 appearances while Ottone - who along with de Graaf was dubbed a team captain - boasted a career-best eight saves, striking out 38 in 35 innings pitched. “The end of our bullpen has to be one of the best in the conference. Brandon Johnson is a solid late inning holder and Daniel Ottone has developed into one of the elite closers in the conference,” said Moranda. NEWCOMERS: In addition to Schultz and White, who are expected to run out with the season-opening starters, red-shirt sophomore transfer Cameron Dullnig could factor into playing time in both the Catamount infield and outfield rotation. Dullnig, who could also see time on the mound, played as a freshman at Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas, earning allconference honors after hitting .372 with 12 doubles and five home runs. Pitching help is expected from several rookies – right handers T.J. Page and Taylor Sandefur and southpaws Adam Curtis, who is from Arden, N.C., and Mat Batts. Sandefur could possibly move into a mid-week starting role for WCU. 2010 WCU BASEBALL SCHEDULE: The Catamounts’ 2010 schedule is loaded again with perennial baseball powers and top 25 opponents - Georgia Tech, East Carolina, Clemson, Georgia, Tennessee - along with Charlotte, West Virginia, Illinois and 30 games within the up-and-coming Southern Conference which is evolving into one of the top 10 NCAA Division I baseball leagues. The schedule includes six teams that made the NCAA Baseball Championships a season ago, three of which were number one seeds. “We’ve got a tough travel year in the conference with Elon, The Citadel, Georgia Southern, Appalachian State and Samford on the road. Our overall schedule is as difficult as always and almost identical, using the RPI, as last year,” Moranda said.

HEAD COACH

Bobby MORANDA 3rd Season – Overall Record of 64-50 at WCU (Eastern Kentucky, 1986) Bobby Moranda was officially introduced as the 10th different head baseball coach at Western Carolina on July 19, 2007. The former Georgia Tech associate head coach brings over 23 years of coaching experience – 18 of which comes from schools in the Atlantic Coast Conference – to WCU. “Bobby Moranda is one of the most dynamic coaches in college baseball. He has been an important part of successful programs at such schools as Virginia, Wake Forest and Georgia Tech,” said Western Athletics Director Chip Smith. “His career includes numerous conference championships and appearances in the NCAA post-season play, including two College World Series berths. We are very excited that Bobby, his wife Pamela and their family will be part of Catamount Athletics and Western Carolina University.” In two seasons at Western Carolina, Moranda has already posted signature victories over fourth-ranked Georgia Tech in the Yellow Jackets first-ever trip to Cullowhee, as well as over 24th-ranked Southern California (USC) on the program’s first-ever trip to California. WCU also secured road wins over Clemson and Tennessee in his first season.

During his first season at WCU, Moranda recruited and coached current Catamount second baseman Ross Heffley, who was the concensus Southern Conference Freshman of the Year in 2009 and was also a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-America selection. He also had Brent Greer named AllSoCon, with four players drafted out of WCU in the Major League Draft in ‘09. Moranda came to Cullowhee after having spent six seasons as the associate head coach at Georgia Tech where he also served a vital role in recruiting and worked extensively with the pitching staff. Prior to his stint with the Yellow Jackets, he spent six years in a similar role at Wake Forest (1996-2001) and was an assistant coach at both Virginia (1990-95) and his alma mater, Eastern Kentucky (1987-89). Overall, Moranda has been a part of 10 conference championships and 12 NCAA Tournament appearances as either a player or a coach. Prior to WCU, a combined 19 players that Moranda either recruited or coached have gone on to careers in the Major Leagues. Twelve pitchers have been selected through the top five rounds alone of the Major League Baseball Draft under the tutelage of Moranda. He also helped recruit and coach Matt Wieters, the fifth pick of the 2007 MLB Draft out of Georgia Tech. In all, Moranda has coached over 60 players who have been selected in the baseball draft, 20 of which were undrafted out of high school. “I am extremely excited to be the head baseball coach at Western Carolina,” said Moranda. “This is an awesome opportunity. Catamount baseball has a strong tradition and I am humbled and honored to now be a part of it. I look forward to embracing and continuing that tradition while raising the bar and elevating our baseball program.”

Coaching QUICK FACTS Bobby MORANDA FULL NAME: Robert Steven Moranda BIRTHDATE: August 18, 1964 EDUCATION: Bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Management with a minor in Marketing from Eastern Kentucky in 1986; Master’s degree in Recreation Administration from Eastern Kentucky in 1989. PLAYING EXPERIENCE: Harper (Ill.) Community College (1983-84); Eastern Kentucky University (1985-86) COACHING EXPERIENCE: Assistant Coach at Eastern Kentucky (1987-98) Head Assistant Coach / Recruiting Coordinator at Virginia (1990-95) Associate Head Coach / Recruiting Coordinator at Wake Forest (1996-2001) Associate Head Coach at Georgia Tech (2002-2007) Head Coach at Western Carolina (2008-present) During his six seasons at Georgia Tech, Moranda helped guide the Yellow Jackets to four, Top 10 finishes, four Super Regional appearances, three ACC titles and a pair of appearances in the NCAA College World Series in Omaha. In 2002, Georgia Tech won a school-record 52 games en route to the CWS thanks in part to a pitching staff which set school records for “Fewest Walks per Nine Innings” (2.54 per 9 IP) and best “Walk to Strikeout” ratio (2.90 to 1) while boasting the best team earned run average since 1994 (4.06) and recorded its most shutouts (6) since 1997. He was also a part of an ACC record 25-straight conference victories with the Jackets. Amidst the run to the College World Series, Moranda’s work with the Georgia Tech pitching staff was more evident than ever as the starting rotation of Kyle Bakker, Chris Goodman and Brian Burks combined for a 5-0 record and 0.77 ERA in NCAA regional play, while the entire staff combined for a 2.40 ERA and held opponents to a .208 batting average. A year later, in 2003, Moranda’s pitching staff helped Tech win the ACC championship by sweeping the first triple-header in conference history. The Yellow Jackets defeated North Carolina, Florida State and NC State on the final day of the tournament to capture the league title. Tech’s 2003 pitching staff again ranked as one of the better staffs in recent GT history. The Yellow Jackets allowed the fewest hits per nine innings in the last 10 years, while posting the second best ERA in that span. Prior to making the move to Georgia Tech in 2001, Moranda spent the previous six years at Wake Forest where he helped lead the Demon Deacons to three ACC Championships in his last four seasons. For his work, he was recognized by Baseball America magazine in January 2001 as one of the country’s “Rising Stars” in the college baseball coaching ranks. After helping lay the groundwork for his first two seasons at Wake Forest as head assistant coach, Moranda helped the Demon Deacons to back-to-back ACC Championships in 1998 and 1999, and a third title in 2001. He helped build the Demon Deacon program into one of the best in the nation through his recruiting efforts and his on-field work with the Wake Forest pitching staff and defense. His pitchers tossed two no-hitters, the school’s first in 60 years. Moranda’s recruiting classes were annually ranked among the nation’s top

classes, while his pitching staffs have attracted national attention from both collegiate baseball experts and professional scouts. His recruiting efforts at Wake Forest resulted in six Freshman All-Americans, including the 2001 National Freshman of the Year, the 2003 ACC Player of the Year, and the first collegiate draft pick in 2003. In 1998 his Demon Deacon pitching staff attracted national attention by throwing five complete games in the six-game ACC tournament. The feat helped Wake Forest win the 1998 ACC Championship and advance to the NCAA South I Regional, the Deacons’ first NCAA appearance in 21 years. Moranda and the Deacons followed that 1998 performance with a five game sweep through the 1999 ACC Tournament, a trip to the NCAA Super Regional and a top-10 national ranking. In his six years at Wake Forest, Moranda consistently developed outstanding pitchers. Ten of his pitchers were selected in the Major League Baseball amateur draft, including six that advanced majors including current players David Bush with Milwaukee Brewers and Mike MacDougal of the Kansas City Royals. Five pitchers earned All-America honors, while his pitchers earned all-ACC accolades seven times in his last five years. His experience with top pitchers extends back to his days at the University of Virginia, where from 1990 to 1995 Moranda helped lay the groundwork as recruiting coordinator that led to the Cavaliers 1996 ACC Championship team. During his six years in Charlottesville as Virginia’s head assistant coach and recruiting coordinator, the Cavs produced more professional players than the program’s previous 100 years combined. Prior to Moranda’s arrival, Virginia had never produced a first-round draft pick or a first-team All-American. By 1996, however, the Cavaliers had two first round picks among 23 combined players drafted and two first-team All-Americans. Moranda’s star pupils and recruits were outfielder Brian Buchannan and pitcher Seth Greisinger. Buchannan has played with the San Diego Padres and Greisinger, who starred on the 1996 U.S. Olympic team, reached the Major Leagues in 1998 with the Detroit Tigers. As a player, Moranda was an All-Region performer at Harper Community College in Illinois and was part of back-to-back championship teams before accepting a scholarship to Eastern Kentucky. The native of Palatine, Ill., batted .307 with 20 home runs and 86 RBI in two seasons at EKU, helping the Colonels win two consecutive Ohio Valley Conference championships and a top-30 national ranking. The Colonels made two consecutive NCAA Regional appearances during Moranda’s playing career and were just two games away from advancing to Omaha for the College World Series in 1985. After gaining his undergraduate degree in broadcast management, Moranda stayed at Eastern Kentucky as an assistant coach for three years while working toward his master’s degree in recreation administration, and EKU made another NCAA Regional appearance during his tenure. During that time, Moranda also coached an American Legion summer team in Palatine that featured Major League catcher Todd Hundley. Moranda and his wife Pamela have been married for 16 years. The couple has two children, daughter Taylor Jade, (12) and son Breyson Kade (8). CATAMOUNT B A S E B A L L 2010

DAVID HAVERSTICK Associate Head Coach / Pitching Coach 3rd Season (Bethel (Ind.) College, 1997) David Haverstick joined the Catamount baseball staff in August of 2007. He came to Cullowhee after having spent five seasons as an assistant coach at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) where he worked with the Bees’ pitching staff. He assumes a similar role at Western Carolina, working with the Catamount pitching staff. Haverstick was also promoted to Associate Head Coach by WCU skipper, Bobby Moranda, prior to the 2009 campaign. “Having a pitching background, I became aware of and impressed with David about five years ago. He is a hard-working individual who pitched with three different Major League organizations. I, along with many highly respected peers in the business, feel he is one of the top young pitching coaches whose instruction is on the cutting edge,” said Moranda. “Kevin O’Sullivan (current Florida head coach, former Clemson pitching coach) and Derek Johnson (pitching coach at Vanderbilt), among several others, highly recommended David. With every phone call I made, his name kept coming to the top while trying to fill the position.”

led the Bees with a 1.15 ERA in 102.0 innings pitched and was drafted in the third round by the New York Yankees in June’s MLB Draft. Pope, who was SCAD’s first-ever NAIA All-American, holds the distinction as being the highest player drafted out of the Florida Sun Conference. Prior to moving to Savannah, Haverstick spent two seasons as an assistant coach at Dallas Baptist University. While at DBU, Haverstick guided the 2001 pitching staff to the lowest team ERA in over nine years. He helped lead the Patriots to NAIA Southwestern Regional and Mid-South Super Regional championships as well as a berth in the 2001 NAIA World Series. While at Dallas Baptist, he earned his Master’s degree in organizational management.

In two seasons, Western Carolina’s pitching staff has featured a second-team All-Southern Conference selection in Mike Tavernier with Chris Masters garnering five SoCon Pitcher of the Week plaudits – the most of any one pitcher in the league – with Corey Martin and Daniel Ottone also earning the weekly award and Garrett Ozar tabbed as a SoCon Pitcher of the Month during the 2009 season.

Haverstick, who was a 16th-round draft selection by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 1997 and was in the system with the D’backs, Florida Marlins (1999) and Washington Nationals (2005), coached three players drafted by major league baseball teams as well as six All-Americans at DBU. The Patriots posted a 78-35 record in the two seasons Haverstick was on staff.

Under Haverstick’s direction, the Bees posted the college’s first-ever NAIA National Player of the Week honor in 2006 when Eddie Anderson was named National Pitcher of the Week. Haverstick has coached three All-Florida Sun Conference performers, as well as two NAIA All-Region XIV standouts. The Bees’ pitching corps finished the season with the second-best ERA (2.58) in the NAIA as well as the fifth-best opponents batting average (.224).

“Haverstick has coached at a couple of institutions with limited resources, but has always managed to produce talented players,” concluded Moranda.

It is the second-time that the Hudson, N.C., native has coached in Cullowhee. He was on staff as a graduate assistant for two seasons from 2004 and ‘05. Beck returns to Western after having served as the first-ever Director of Baseball Operations under former Catamount skipper, Todd Raleigh, at the University of Tennessee. His primary responsibilities at Tennessee included managing all baseball camps, oversight of student managers, serving as an academic liaison and assistance with on-campus recruiting. Prior to joining the staff at UT, Beck spent the 2007 season as an assistant coach at Young Harris Junior College in Young Harris, Ga. While coaching hitters and infielders, Beck mentored a club that led all Georgia junior colleges in 10 different offensive statistical categories. The 2007 Mountain Lions won the Region XVII regular season and tournament titles, in addition to claiming the district championship. Beck’s lone season at YHC was highlighted by the school’s first all-time appearance in the Junior College World Series. Beck ended his four-year career as one of the most outstanding players in both Western Carolina and Southern Conference history. The three-time All-SoCon selection (including a pair of first-team honors) ranks on both the school and league career top-10 lists in several statistical categories. He currently ranks third in career runs (216), third in career RBI (222), third in career total bases (488), fifth in career hits (285), fifth in career doubles (60), sixth in career walks (132) and seventh in career home runs (45), while posting a career .341 batting average.

Player of the Week honoree and was selected second team All-Atlantic Region by the American Baseball Coaches Association. Beck’s collegiate playing career included numerous other impressive achievements as well. As a junior, he ranked among the SoCon’s top 10 in nine of 12 offensive statistical categories. From his sophomore to junior seasons, he authored an impressive streak of reaching base safely (hit, walk or hit by pitch) in 65 consecutive games, and he reached base safely in 50 of 54 games played in 2002. He earned first-team All-SoCon acclaim in 2001 after ranking among the NCAA leaders in RBIs (16th with an average of 1.29 per game), walks (22nd with an average of 0.85 per game) and doubles (23rd with an average of 0.42 per game). He also ranked among the SoCon top five in nine offensive categories, leading the league in on-base percentage (.515) and walks. The Baltimore Orioles selected Beck in the 16th round (464th overall pick) of the 2003 MLB draft, and he played for the Bluefield Orioles and Class A short-season Aberdeen IronBirds in 2003 before attending spring training in 2004. His professional career was cut short, however, after he suffered a severe wrist injury. It was following his injury that Beck returned to his alma mater in 2005 as a member of the Catamounts coaching staff, working with the outfielders.

RECAPPING THE 2009 CATAMOUNT BASEBALL SEASON Despite an early exit from the annual Southern Conference Baseball tournament in Greenville, S.C., and being left out of the NCAA post-season, 2009 was a very successful season on the diamond for the Catamounts and second-year head coach Bobby Moranda. According to the pundits entering the Southern Conference tournament a year ago, WCU was favored to be a third at-large from the SoCon – a league which boasted a seventh-place ranking in overall RPI out of the 31 conferences ranked last season. Four Catamounts, including three juniors, were selected in the 2009 Major League Draft (pictured at the right): • Nick Liles was taken in the 7th Round with the 207th overall pick by the San Francisco Giants; • Chris Masters was taken in the 11th Round with the 328th overall pick by the Atlanta Braves; • Brent Greer was taken in the 14th Round with the 426th overall pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks;

• Corey Martin was the lone WCU senior drafted, taken in the 27th Round with the 830th overall pick by the Chicago Cubs.

• WCU closed the season with 10-straight wins away from home, including nine-consecutive road wins and one at a neutral site ... the Catamounts tallied road SoCon series sweeps over UNC Greensboro and Davidson, with non-conference road victories over perennial Atlantic-10 power and two-time defending league champion, Charlotte, and High Point during the stretch;

Among those wins were four over top 25 ranked squads including fourth-ranked Georgia Tech and two wins over then 24th-ranked Southern California on the road in Los Angeles; • Western finished the season strong by winning 13 of its final 19 games on the year including 10 of those victories away from home; • The 35 wins on the season marked the 22nd time since 1984 that WCU secured 30 victories in a season and the seventh 30+ win season since 2000;

He is also a candidate for Freshman All-American and All-Atlantic Region; • Sophomore first baseman Matt Johns ended the regular season and conference tournament with a career-long 22-game hitting streak – the longest for a Catamount in over two years; • Western Carolina enjoyed four Pitcher of the Week honors, including two by Chris Masters, one by Daniel Ottone and one by Corey Martin – the first in the Martin’s career ... WCU also garnered SoCon Pitcher of the Month in Garrett Ozar in February ... Stephen Notaro earned the Catamounts’ lone Player of the Week nod during the regular season; • In addition to Brent Greer’s single-season hits record, several Catamounts left marks on the school’s seasonal record books: - Greer and Nick Liles each legged out 22 doubles, tied for fourth in the school single-season ledger ... Mitchell Hatley was hit by 16 pitches, fifth in the record books ... A trio of Catamounts eclipsed the 20-stolen base plateau with Trevor Collias swiping 30 (tied for 3rd in the single-season record book with Martin Barrow, 1998); J.C. Lyons stole 27 to rank eighth all-time, while Liles stole 24 to rank 11th.

The 2010 season will mark the 33rd that the Western Carolina University baseball program has called Ronnie G. Childress Field its home. The facility was officially renamed Childress Field at Hennon Stadium in a dedication ceremony on April 23, 1994. The Catamounts moved approximately 200 yards to the east from Haywood Field early in the 1978 season and have won over 72 percent of their home games since then, with a 542-210 record in 31 seasons. Bill Haywood, head baseball coach from 1969 through 1981, and Mr. E.J. Whitmire, longtime supporter and benefactor from Franklin, were the driving forces behind the building of the facility. Childress Field, built at an initial cost of $125,000, was dedicated April 26, 1978, and named in honor of the late Ronnie G. Childress, an avid supporter of WCU athletics and a special friend of the baseball program. Childress, through his family’s radio station (WRGC) in Sylva, N.C., pioneered broadcasts of WCU’s baseball games. He died in May 1975 as the result of an electrical accident at the radio station. The James B. Childress family established the Ronnie Childress Memorial Fund Scholarships in 1975 and scholarships have been awarded annually to one or more WCU baseball player for the past 33 years. The facility received a $500,000-plus face lift over an eight-year time period, thanks in large part to the generosity of Mr. Lamar Hennon of Dalton, Ga., and has become a showplace of Southern Conference baseball. Permanent bleacher seating, grandstand chairback seats, and the facility’s first-ever press box were installed prior to and during the 1990 season. A modern scoreboard, concession stands, rest rooms, and a new infield were added prior to the 1991 season. The growth of the facility continued as part of Western’s new building projects. Lights and a new sound system were added to the ballpark in the Fall of 2002. Western played its first ever night game on March 25, upsetting 10th-ranked Clemson, who is led by former WCU head coach Jack Leggett. In the summer of 2003, Childress Field was completely refurbished with nearly $500,000 worth of improvements, including new drainage and irrigation, a new burmuda playing surface, new infield dirt and a new warning track. The warning track was extended to encompass the entire playing surface prior to the 2009 season. A new clubhouse on the first-base side with expanded and updated stadium seating designs are planned for the upcoming seasons. The field’s dimensions are 325 feet down each line, 375 feet to the right and left center power alleys and 390 feet to straight away center field. The “Purple Monster” in left field is 100 feet long and is divided into two 50-foot levels. The first and tallest level is 20 feet high and the second level is 14 feet tall. WCU hosted the 1984 and 1986 Southern Conference Tournaments at Childress Field and has welcomed out-of-conference teams representing such schools as Clemson, Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio State, South Carolina and North Carolina State to the facility in addition to the SoCon slate.

DR. JOHN W. BARDO CHANCELLOR, Western Carolina University

During his 12 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.

The Southern Conference Conference,, which enters its 89th season of intercollegiate competition in 2009, has become known as one of the nation’s leaders in emphasizing the development of the student-athlete and defining the league’s role in helping to build lifelong leaders and role models. 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. The Southern Conference has excelled as the premier Football Championship Subdivision conference since earning that classification in 1981. SoCon member Appalachian State won three-straight Football Championship Subdivision titles. The Conference currently consists of 12 members in four states throughout the Southeast and sponsors 19 varsity sports and championships that produce participants for NCAA Division I Championships. Throughout its history, the Southern Conference has been an innovator in college athletics. The Southern Conference was the first “super conference” with its charter membership including the likes of Alabama, Auburn, and North Carolina. The SoCon, as it has come to be known by headline writers throughout the country, is the league that gave birth to the three-point shot in college basketball at Western Carolina University, and was the college home of such sporting greats as Arnold Palmer, Jerry West and Charlie “Choo Choo” Justice. Academic excellence has been a major part of the Southern Conference’s tradition. League athletes have been recognized countless times on Verizon/CoSIDA Academic All-America and district teams. A total of 19 Rhodes-Scholarship winners have been selected from the conference. M E MBERS M BERS HIP HI P HIS HI S TORY T ORY The Southern Conference was formed on February 25, 1921 at a meeting in Atlanta, Ga. Fourteen institutions from the 30-member Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA) reorganized as the Southern Conference. Those charter members included Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi State, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Washington & Lee. Athletic competition began in the fall of 1921. In 1922, six more schools - Florida, Louisiana State, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tulane and Vanderbilt - joined the fold. A year later, the University of the South joined the ranks. Virginia Military Institute became a member in 1925 and Duke University came into the fold in 1929. Since then, conference membership has experienced a series of membership changes with 42 institutions having been affiliated with the league. The league has undergone two major transitions during its history. The first occurred in December 1932 when the Southeastern Conference was formed out of the 23-school Southern Conference. The league’s 13 members west and south of the Appalachian Mountains reorganized to help reduce the extensive travel demands that were present in the league at the time. In 1936, the Southern Conference invited The Citadel, William & Mary, Davidson, Furman, Richmond and Wake Forest to join the membership. The second major shift happened in 1953 when Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest officially withdrew from the league to form the Atlantic Coast Conference. This change was brought about due to the desire of many of those schools to schedule a greater number of regular season basketball games against their local rivals. Today, the league continues to thrive with a 12-school membership that spans four Southeastern states. Current league members are Appalachian State, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Chattanooga, Western Carolina and Wofford, with Samford officially joining the league on July 1, 2008. CHAM CHA MPION P I ONS S HIPS HI P S HIS HI S TOR TORYY The first Southern Conference Championship was the league basketball tournament held in Atlanta in 1922. The North Carolina Tar Heels won the tournament to become the first recognized league champion in any sport. The Southern Conference Tournament remains the oldest of its kind in college basketball. The Southern Conference began sponsoring women’s sports during the 1983-84 season. That year, volleyball, basketball and tennis championships were held in the league. Cross country joined the mix in 1985 and the league began holding indoor and outdoor track championships in 1988. Most recently, the conference instituted golf and softball championships in the spring of 1994 and added soccer in the fall of 1994. The Southern Conference currently declares champions in 10 men’s sports - football, soccer, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, wrestling, baseball, tennis and golf - and nine women’s sports - soccer, volleyball, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, tennis, golf and softball. Women’s sports are relatively young in the league’s history. In 1992-93, the Southern Conference celebrated its 10th Anniversary of women’s athletics. Furman golfer Dottie Pepper was named the SoCon Women’s Athlete-of-the-Decade in conjunction with that event. Appalachian State’s Mary Jayne Harrelson won the NCAA Outdoor title at 1500 meters in 1999 and 2001. Furman’s Brandi Jackson won the NCAA Women’s Golf East Regional in the spring of 2003.
