Volleyball History

W

estern Carolina University, a trendsetter for the state and region in women’s athletics, has enjoyed a tradition of excellence for more than four decades with its various women’s sports. In no sport is this more evident than volleyball, in which WCU is credited for fielding the first intercollegiate team in the state of North Carolina. Since WCU Hall of Famer Betty Peele organized the first volleyball squad in 1963, Western has continued to strive for success in women’s athletics. Peele’s 1963 volleyball team was not only the state’s first in that sport, but was also the school’s first organized women’s team in any sport at the intercollegiate level. Peele went on to introduce and coach tennis, field hockey, softball, and golf at Western Carolina. Her success with, and development of, the Catamount volleyball team alone is a story in itself. The first volleyball team saw competition in 1963 in the form of “play-days” at different campus sites throughout the region. The sport was sponsored through the school’s health and physical education department during its first 10 years and became an officially recognized intercollegiate athletic team under the auspices of the department of athletics in 1973. Peele, who coached the team for 18 seasons, led her 1972 and 1973 teams to state championships at the first two North Carolina Athletic Intercollegiate Association of Women (AIAW) tournaments. She repeated that accomplishment with another state title in 1980. The 1982 season marked the start of a new era in Western volleyball in several ways, most notably as Peele passed the reigns of her Catamounts over to Trish Howell, who had served as Peele’s assistant the previous two seasons. The ‘82 season was also the program’s first as a NCAA Division I member.

The Southern Conference, in which WCU already competed in men’s sports, began testing the waters in women’s volleyball by sponsoring a pilot championship tournament in 1982 and Howell led her first team to a second-place showing in that event. She would return with a team in 1983 that would win the first official Southern Conference Volleyball Championship Tournament, thus becoming the first WCU team to win a Southern Conference championship in any sport outright. In addition, Howell was named Southern Conference Volleyball Coach of the Year in 1983 to become the first woman to Head coach Betty Peele (back row, far left) coached the volleyball ever receive such a conference award and team in 1973, which was first year any women’s team was recognized by Western Carolina as a varsity sport. The ‘73 squad compiled a 21-4 the first conference volleyball coach to be so overall record, marking the second-highest winning percentage in honored. It would be the first of three such WCU volleyball history. That squad also featured two WCU Hall of awards for her during her 12-year tenure as Fame members – Jayne Arledge (#2, back row) and Judy Stroud (back row, far right). Arledge continues to hold four career and five she garnered the recognition again in 1985 seasonal records in women’s basketball history, including WCU’s and ‘89. all-time leading scorer. Stroud returned to her alma mater in 1980 As if the rivalry between the two mountain as the women’s basketball coach for four seasons. schools needed more fuel, Appalachian State played a major role in the fate of Catamount volleyball teams in the mid-80’s. Howell’s 1984 squad lost to the Mountaineers in a heart-stopping, five-game affair, but returned to steal the thunder in 1985 in one of the league’s most exciting finals ever. Western Carolina, led by such talent as Emily Holliday (1982-85), Donna Smith (1984-87), Crystal Sullivan (1983-86), and Michelle Barrett (198386) – whome all earned all-conference honors at least once during their WCU careers – won a see-saw battle in front of a hometown crowd in Boone in five games to cap a 27-4 season. Western’s 1986 squad was the most recent to win the tournament, as the Cats downed ASU again after sharing the regular season crown with the Mountaineers. Western also earned a co-championship in regular season play in the 1989 season. In 1990, Western Carolina was honored with its first-ever – and to date, only – Southern Conference Player of the Year honor. Regina Brown (1987-90) was tabbed as the best overall player in the conference that season. The mid-1990s marked the return to the spotlight for Catamount volleyball as head coach Michelle Hansen led Western to the Southern Conference championship match in both 1997 – her first year at the helm – and 1998. Despite dropping both finals matches to Chattanooga, the on-court performance set the stage for a successful decade. Western and Hansen tallied fourconsecutive 20-win seasons from 1998-2001, the most for the program since securing 21 victories in 1992. Off the court, Western also experienced unprecedented success. Ramsey Herron (1996-99) was a two-time GTE Academic All-America second team selection in both 1998 and ‘99. In the late 1990s, Christy Attebery (1998-2001) found her way to Western North Carolina and very rapidly found her way into the Catamount record books. Attebery holds the distinction as WCU’s all-time leader in kills, ranking as the only Catamount to every eclipse the 2,000-career kill barrier finishing with 2,109 to still hold the record today. The only three-time All-SoCon performer in the school’s history, Attebery also ranks atop the charts for career digs (1,682) and ranks second in career aces (159), while also holding three of the top 10 single-season records for kills.

Dr. DAVID O. BELCHER Western Carolina University Chancellor David O. Belcher, provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock since 2003, has been elected chancellor of Western Carolina University by the Board of Governors of the multi-campus University of North Carolina. UNC President Tom Ross placed Belcher’s name in nomination Friday, April 8, during a regular meeting of the board. Belcher, 53, will assume his new duties July 1, succeeding John W. Bardo, who is stepping down after 16 years in the post. In recommending Belcher to the Board of Governors, Ross said: “David Belcher brings to the task more than two decades of academic and leadership experience at highly respected public universities. At each step along the way, he has proven himself to be an energetic and effective leader who encourages strategic thinking, promotes collaboration and inclusiveness, and makes student success a university-wide responsibility. He has also earned a reputation for great integrity, sound decision-making, and a strong commitment to community engagement and outreach. I am convinced that Dr. Belcher has the right mix of experience, skills, and passion needed to take Western Carolina to the next level, and I am thrilled that he has agreed to join our leadership team.” A member of the University of Arkansas System, the University of Arkansas at Little Rock is a doctoral research university enrolling more than 13,000 students at the undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral levels. Its six colleges and UALR’s William H. Bowen School of Law include more than 100 programs of study. Like Western Carolina, UALR has experienced significant enrollment growth while increasing academic standards and has focused on meeting regional and state needs in education, health-related fields, and strategic areas of research and development. As provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs, Belcher is UALR’s chief academic officer. In that role, he has been responsible for overseeing all academic programs, as well as providing leadership for the Offices of Research and Graduate Studies, Innovation and Commercialization, and Extended Programs; UALR’s Ottenheimer Library; student recruitment; the UALR Nanotechnology Center; the Sequoyah National Research Center; the Arkansas Studies Institute; and the Donaghey Scholars Program. A native of Barnwell, S.C., Belcher graduated from Furman University in 1979 with a degree in piano performance. After receiving a master’s degree (1981) in the field at the University of Michigan, he studied in Vienna, Austria, on a Rotary Foundation Graduate Fellowship before earning his doctorate (1989) at the University of Rochester’s Eastman School of Music. While a student at Eastman, he received the Jerald C. Graue Memorial Scholarship for excellence in musicological research. Belcher began his academic career in 1988 as an assistant professor of music at Missouri State University. During his 15-year tenure at MSU, he rose steadily through the academic and administrative ranks. After serving as coordinator of keyboard studies in MSU’s Music Department (1989-92) and assistant dean of

2011

the College of Arts and Letters (1993), he was named dean of the College of Arts and Letters in 1994. He left Missouri in 2003 to join UALR as provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs. At UALR, Belcher has been credited with leading strategic planning and emphasizing the campus’ institutional mission to be responsive to regional and state priorities. Under his leadership, the campus has launched seven new doctoral degree programs, created an Office of Innovation and Commercialization to capitalize on faculty research and promote economic development, implemented initiatives to improve student retention and graduation rates, earned designation as a Carnegie Community Engaged institution, and begun a thorough review of the undergraduate curriculum. Belcher also is a member of the leadership team for UALR’s first comprehensive development campaign, which reached its $75-million fund-raising goal 1½ years ahead of schedule in summer 2010 and has now been extended to $100 million. Throughout his career, Belcher has appeared widely as a recitalist and chamber musician and been active in civic and community organizations. He currently serves on the boards of directors of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra and the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute. A past chair of the Little Rock Arts and Culture Commission, he has previously led the boards of the Springfield (Missouri) Regional Opera and the Springfield Regional Arts Council and has held leadership positions with the National Conference of Governors’ Schools, Missouri Citizens for the Arts, the Missouri Alliance for Arts Education, and the Urban Districts Alliance. Voted 2004 Administrator of the Year by UALR students, he also received the 1999 Ozzie Award from the Springfield Regional Arts Council in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the arts. Belcher is married to Susan Brummell Belcher, who taught voice at UALR and co-chaired the UALR Music Department Recruitment Committee.

Western Carolina University Director of Athletics Chip Smith was selected as Western Carolina’s Director of Athletics on Aug. 23, 2004 by former chancellor, Dr. John W. Bardo.

Staff

Smith’s first year on the job at Western was an eventful one as Western Carolina’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.

Introduction

Mr. Chip Smith

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.

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 studentathletes 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.

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 (24), who is a 2009 graduate of UNC Greensboro, and a son, Cort (20), who graduated from Smoky Mountain High School and is currently enrolled at North Carolina.

2010 Season Review

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 and ‘09. 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 Carolina played for a share of the SoCon title in football, falling to eventual national champion Appalachian State in the final regularseason 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).

A native of Greensboro who grew up in Siler City, N.C., Smith earned his bachelor’s degree in education at the University of 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 UNC in 1989.

Introduction

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.

Staff

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.

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.

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.

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.

History & Records

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.

2010 Season Review

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.

Player Profiles

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.

WESTERN CAROLINA UNIVERSITY

Intercollegiate Athletics Role and Mission The Department of Athletics at Western Carolina University is an integral program of the institution and exists solely to complement the central University mission of teaching and learning. The University seeks to create a community of scholarship in which the activities of its members are consistent with the highest standards of knowledge and practice in their disciplines. The athletics program reflects this commitment to highest standards and shares the responsibility of achieving the goals of the University. The activities of the athletics program provide an environment in which student, coaches, faculty, staff and administrators jointly assume the responsibility for the success on and off the field of play. The athletics program embraces the concept that student-athletes are first and foremost students — possessing academic goals, personal interests, and vocational ambitions not unlike those of any other student. The athletics program complements other University programs by enhancing the educational, social, career and athletic opportunities of the students who participate in athletics. This environment also fosters a commitment to high standards of personal and professional conduct by all members of the athletic community manifested in the highest level of sportsmanship. Western Carolina University is committed to ensuring equitable participation and treatment of men and women of all races and ethnic origins. The athletics program actively promotes an environment in which fair and equitable distribution of athletic opportunities, benefits, and resources are available to all athletics program participants, and in which any person is free from discrimination. The athletics program provides significant contributions to the University by enhancing loyalty to the alma mater, strengthening the pride and enthusiasm of alumni, fostering a strong sense of community, and serving as a positive public relations tool for the University.

Intercollegiate Athletics v ision

Western Carolina University Athletics’ vision is to be the best place to be a student-athlete in the Southern Conference The first question that this statement causes to surface is, “What does ‘best place’ mean?” For the Athletics Department (Athletics), it means all of the following: • Academics – Athletics will become the number one program among the public institutions in The Southern Conference (SoCon) for graduation rates for its student-athletes. Athletics is committed to ensuring that every student-athlete graduates. This means giving greater attention to study halls, tutoring, and other means of coping with the additional pressures student-athletes face in balancing their academic and athletics goals. • Winning – Athletics is committed to upgrading its competitiveness and dominating the SoCon in all sports by competing for and winning Conference championships and post-season competitions. • Support – Athletics has fostered support (financial and attendance) based on shared ownership among the following groups: University Administration; Faculty/Staff; Student Body; Alumni; Community. • People – Athletics personnel includes coaches, administration and support staff are highly skilled at what they do and determined to help the student-athletes realize a meaningful and enjoyable experience during their tenure at WCU. • Life Skills – Athletics maintains a vibrant Life Skills program which is a model in the SoCon. Support for this program continues to foster the growth of student-athletes by emphasing the following commitments: academic excellence, athletic excellence, personnel development, career development and service. • Facilities – Athletic facilities are comparable to or better than any of those within SoCon. • Competition – Athletics has enhanced its level of competition, thereby increasing the quality of play within the SoCon and the possibilities for post-season opportunities. • Attitude – Athletics has developed a winning attitude. This sustained attitude, coupled with real success, has created a new winning tradition for Western. • Gender and Minority Equity – The athletics program reflects its commitment to ensuring equitable participation and treatment of men and women of all races and ethic origins.
