2010 Preview Coach Concepcion’s Second Season at the Helm of the Program Catamount head coach Manuel Concepcion enters his second season with the program and looks to guide his team to the school’s first winning season since 2002. With eight returners who saw plenty of action last year, the sights are set high for this year’s squad. “Losing was the culture of the program before last year and it was acceptable to these players,” said Concepcion. “We have made huge improvements and the players are buying into our philosophy and the system, it’s really impressive. Seeing the team learn new techniques and welcome new ideas into their game is really encouraging and I feel privileged to be coaching this group.” Additions to the Coaching Staff Coach Concepcion has added Anne Mastandrea and Michelle Cadavid to the coaching staff for the upcoming season. Mastandrea joins the staff after spending the last two seasons with Big-Ten member Northwestern, serving as the director of volleyball operations. The Downers Grove, Ill., played collegiately at Purdue from 2004-08. Cadavid coached the Texas A&M club volleyball team from 2008-09, leading the team to a third-place finish at the national tournament. She coached the Brazos Valley Juniors Club Team from 2004-09 and has served as the camp director and head coach at a variety of volleyball camps throughout Texas. Cadavid earned three degrees from Texas A&M from 2002-10. The Schedule The Catamounts will play 18 home matches this season, the most in school history, and will open the year at home for the first time since Aug. 31, 2001 when they defeated Evansville, 3-2. Western Carolina hosts two tournaments, the VB Rags Western Carolina Invitational on Aug. 27-28 and the Western Carolina Invitational on Sept. 18. The Catamounts also participate in two tournaments away from the Ramsey Center on Sept. 3-4 at the Indiana State Tournament in Terre Haute, Ind., and on Sept. 10-11 at the Evansville Tournament in Evansville, Ind. The Catamounts face a total of 15 non-conference foes this season and begin Southern Conference action on Sept. 24 at home against the College of Charleston. The regular-season wraps up on the road at Elon on Nov. 13 before the conference tournament where the Catamounts haven’t participated since 2006.

Assistant Coach

Anne Mastandrea 1st Season Purdue University, ‘09 Downers Grove, Ill.

Anne Mastandrea (pronounced “Mast-andrea”) joined the Catamount volleyball program as an assistant coach in August 2010 after spending two seasons at Northwestern as the director of volleyball operations. “I am thrilled to add someone of the high-caliber of Coach Mastandrea to our staff,” Concepcion said. “She is a young, dynamic coach with a lot of great ideas both on and off the court. Her background as a former Director of Operations for a Big-Ten school, as well as her extensive Camp & Club experience, will be instrumental tools for the growth of our program.” Mastandrea was a four-year letterwinner at Purdue where she closed her career third in career digs (1,356) and fourth in digs per game (3.33). Her 571 digs as a sophomore ranks second on Purdue’s single season digs list, while her 4.76 digs per game average in 2005 ranks as the highest single season digs-per-game average in program history. As a senior for the Boilermakers, Mastandrea totaled the eighth-most digs (449) in a single season and the eighth-most digs per game (3.74). “Mastandrea’s playing career at Purdue clearly showed the kind of work ethic and mental toughness that she has, where she went from a walk-on to a scholarship player in a rebuilding program that ended up in the top 16 teams in the nation at the time that she graduated,” Concepcion said. “Because of her gifted defensive mindset, she will be spending a lot of time working with our outside hitters and defensive specialists.” The Downers Grove, Ill., native coached the 2010 AAU’s Championships with her 1st Alliance Volleyball Club 17’s team before joining the Catamount volleyball staff.

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 com-

peted 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 ever Head coach Betty Peele (back row, far left) coached the volleyball team in receive such a conference award and the 1973, which was first year any women’s team was recognized by Western as a varsity sport. The ‘73 squad compiled a 21-4 overall record, first conference volleyball coach to be so Carolina marking the second-highest winning percentage in WCU volleyball hishonored. It would be the first of three such tory. That squad also featured two WCU Hall of Fame members – Jayne awards for her during her 12-year tenure Arledge (#2, back row) and Judy Stroud (back row, far right). Arledge conto hold four career and five seasonal records in women’s basketball as she garnered the recognition again in tinues history, including WCU’s all-time leading scorer. Stroud returned to her 1985 and ‘89. alma mater in 1980 as the women’s basketball coach for four seasons.

the on-court performance set the stage for a successful decade. Western and Hansen tallied four-consecutive 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. The Catamounts continued the 20-plus victory seasons, making it five-in-a-row under first-year head coach, and Western Carolina alum, Angell Kirkpatrick Benson, with 22 wins in the 2002 campaign.

Dragan as its seventh different head coach all-time. During her first season, the Catamounts ended a five-year drought in SoCon tournament play, winning for the first-time since the 2000 season. The Western Carolina Athletics Hall of Fame is graced by six former volleyball players and/or coaches including Brown, Nora Lynn Finch (1967-70), Judy Green (1980-84), Holliday, Robyn Keeler Livesay (1980-84), and Peele. Western Carolina has also become a model in academics as 71 Catamount volleyball players have been named to the Southern Conference Academic Honor Roll over the past 13 seasons. WCU volleyball student-athletes have been awarded Academic All-America honors on five occasions. Also, for the three-consecutive years from 2001-03, the team was honored by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) by receiving the AVCA/Molton Team Academic Award for having one of the highest team grade point averages (GPA) in the nation. For the 2002-03 academic year, the WCU volleyball team finished in a five-way tie for 26th among all Division I schools with a 3.32 GPA. In 2000, Kellyn Thaut became the first Western Carolina volleyball player to earn the Southern Conference’s Rayna Taylor Freshman of the Year. The award is named in honor of the 1998 receipient, former UNC Greensboro freshman of the year Rayna Taylor who passed away in February of 2000. Thaut led the ‘03 Catamounts with 445 kills.

In 1990, Regina Brown became the first Catamount to win the Southern Conference Player of the Year award. Brown played one year of women’s basketball, and ranks third on the single-season blocks and seventh on the career swats list with 64 during her one season in 1992.

Western from 1989-92, is the only former player to have returned to her alma mater to lead the program, coaching from 2002 through the 2004 season. History was again made in 2003 under Benson’s tuteledge. Kellyn Thaut became the first Western Carolina volleyball player to be named the Rayna Taylor Freshman of the Year. Thaut led the Cats’ with 445 kills during her freshman campaign, adding 368 digs, 43 total blocks, and 36 service aces to earn the 15-year old award. In April of 2005, Western introduced Stephanie (Above) – The 1989 Southern Conference Regular Season Co-Champion Western Carolina volleyball team.

Dr. John W. Bardo Western Carolina University Chancellor

During his tenure 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 15 years of leadership, student enrollment has soared nearly 50 percent, the average SAT scores of entering freshmen have risen by 100 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 950 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 studentathletes, 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.

Mr. 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 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. 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. The men’s golf team garnered its first-ever, at-large bid to the NCAA Championship tournament while the track & field teams have taken five of the six 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 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 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.

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.
