The Western Carolina Media Relations Office will assist media personnel with interview requests of WCU student-athletes, coaches or administrators. To arrange interviews, please contact Daniel Hooker at least 24 hours in advance. Head Coach Bobby Moranda will be available for interviews prior to or following each practice. 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 residence halls; student-athletes’ phone numbers will not be released by the WCU Department of Athletics. Out-of-town media may set up phone interviews. Head 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. Season passes will be issued to those who cover the Catamounts on a permanent basis. Press passes will be assigned by priority to WCU beat writers, beat writers of the opponents, metropolitan media filing for deadline and specialty publications. If time permits, credentials will be mailed. If not, credentials can be picked up on game day (two hours prior to first pitch) at the Hennon Stadium ticket booth. Credentials will be issued only to those attending the game in a working capacity. Spouses, dates, children and other nonworkers will NOT be permitted in the press box.

PHOTOGRAPHERS: Credentials for photographers will be issued on a first-come, first-serve basis with agencies covering the participating schools on a regular basis receiving priority. Each photographer must pick up a photo pass prior to the game. Photographers will shoot from designated areas. Photographers wishing to take field-level photos must do so along the fences beyond the dugouts towards the outfield.

VISITING RADIO BROADCASTS: The visiting radio station or network (limited to one crew only as designated through the visiting team’s sports information office) is asked to request credentials through Western Carolina’s Media Relations office. A B-1 dialtone line will be provided at no charge to all Southern Conference opponents and to others who wish to enter into a reciprocal agreement with WCU. Otherwise, the lines are available to visiting radio crews on a pro rata basis. Any additional special broadcast lines, such as ISDN, can be ordered through Frontier Communications.

CATAMOUNTS ON THE WEB, ONLINE BROADCASTS: The WCU baseball home page provides the latest information regarding the Catamounts including updated statistics, rosters, and press releases. For those unable to attend contests, the Catamount Sports Network will broadcast select games over the Internet as well – those games can be heard online through Stretch Internet services at www.CatamountSports.com. In addition, live stats will be made available for all WCU baseball home games via GameTracker on:

11-TIME SOUTHERN CONFERENCE BASEBALL REGULAR SEASON CHAMPION

9-TIME SOUTHERN CONFERENCE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT CHAMPION

11 NCAA TOURNAMENT APPEARANCES: 1985  1986  1987  1988  1989  1992  1993  1994  1997  2003  2007

2011 SEASON PREVIEW Western Carolina finished 37-21-1 a season ago, just missing out on a return to NCAA post-season play for the third-consecutive year. Moranda and the Catamounts return six of its nine position players from a season ago, as well as all three weekend starters from the close of the year. Combined, the WCU pitching staff returns 29 of the 37 victories on the hill and 82-percent of all innings pitched from last season’s SoCon tournament runner-up. “We are looking to build upon the successes of last year,” said Moranda during the preseason. “We got a taste of championship baseball by making it to the SoCon final a season ago, and want to take it to the next level this year into the NCAA tournament and to win a regional.” Greeting WCU at home this season will be a renovated Childress Field at Hennon Stadium. Stadium construction included painting the entire facility, installation of a centerfield batter’s eye, refurbishing the dugouts and the addition of a brick facade behind home plate that stretches from dugout to dugout, Major League netting and re-seating the whole stadium. “This off-season renovation project has taken on a life of its own. I am so proud of my assistant coaches, Dave (Haverstick), Alan (Beck) and Bruce (Johnson), our players and my wife, Pamela, for going above and beyond in helping make this project a reality,” Moranda said. “So many amazing people have stepped up - too many to simply list - and are deserving of my utmost respect and appreciation from the Catamount baseball family.” He added, “We are very excited about the improvements to our home ball park and look forward to a great 2011 season.” The Catamounts return a pair of nine-game winners in senior starting RHP Matt Benedict (9-2, 3.11 ERA) and ace RHP reliever senior Brandon Johnson (9-1, 2.89 ERA). Benedict, a first team All-SoCon selection this year, led the conference in earned run average last season while Johnson – who was tabbed second team as a reliever prior to the season – was near the top in appearances with 33, all out of the bullpen. Despite paltry numbers from his rookie season a year ago, sophomore RHP Taylor Sandefur (1-2, 5.19 ERA) showed that he has what it takes to compete at the collegiate level after being thrust into the Friday starting role as a true freshman. He translated the confidence gained into a Cy Young Award in the Valley League over the summer with the Waynesboro (Va.) Generals. Offensively, WCU returns 34 of the 74 home runs from a season ago, while also welcoming back redshirt senior Stephen Notaro from injury that limited him to two games in 2010. Notaro, a native of Thousand Oaks, Calif., paced the squad with 13 home runs two seasons ago. The Catamounts will have to replace 56 stolen bases from last year’s fleet-footed squad, but preseason All-SoCon selection Matt Johns returns with 23 thefts and redshirt junior Cameron Dullnig adding 16 stolen bags to go along with his school single-season record 25 HBPs. Junior Ross Heffley returns as the team’s leader in batting average (.361), hits (86) and RBI (63) from 2010. He earned preseason accolades from the league as a first-team second baseman. All told, Heffley is a career .376 hitter entering his third season with 50 extra base hits including 33 doubles and 15 home runs. Preseason prognostications for the Catamounts have varied as much as the weather forecast through the early spring practices. In predictions released by the SoCon, the league coaches tabbed the Catamounts fourth while the voting members of the SoCon Sports Media Association (SCSMA) pegged WCU fifth out of the 11-team league. Mark Etheridge of SEBaseball.com figured the Catamounts in second behind the Cougars. On the national scene, CollegeBaseballDaily.com ranked the Catamounts 14th in its preseason midmajor poll, second among the four SoCon squads to grace the ledger, while also being listed in the “others receiving votes” for the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) preseason poll.

PITCHING STAFF OVERVIEW: Western Carolina returns 11 pitchers from a year ago, all of which having made 11-or-more appearances on the mound. The Catamounts return 29 of their 37 victories including nine-game winners Matt Benedict and Brandon Johnson. The Catamounts also have back five of their 12 saves with Johnson collecting two and right-handers Andrew Chilcoat, TJ Page and Kyle Stewart each tallying one. All indications from fall and early spring practices are that the weekend rotation will center around All-SoCon performer, Benedict, with sophomore Taylor Sandefur and freshman righthander Jordan Smith, who was the fall World Series Most Outstanding Pitcher. Stewart made 10 starts a year ago and could see both mid-week and weekend starts, with hard-throwing lefthander Vance Chavis also earning the starting nod 10 times last season. WCU possesses a wealth of middle relief arms that could also be utilized in mid-week starting. Sophomores Preston Hatcher (5) and TJ Page (2) both started games a season ago while lefthanded classmate Adam Curtis scored a pair of wins out of his 11 relief appearances. Mountain product, junior Andrew Blackwell, could earn the closer role out of the bullpen. Reliever Brandon Johnson scored nine victories out of the bullpen during the 2010 season.

ville, N.C., native made 19 appearances, fanning 23 against only nine walks and twice threw his career-long against both Tennessee (3.0) and Clemson (3.2) in Catamount victories. PITCHING – KEY LOSSES: Closer Daniel Ottone was drafted as a senior after recording seven saves and a 1-2 overall record out of the pen for WCU a season ago. He quickly matriculated through the San Diego Padres’ farm system, advancing to Triple-A affiliate, Portland, before finishing the year in Single-A. The only other pitching loss of note was senior Jason Sullivan, who missed a large portion of the year with an elbow injury. Sullivan posted a 4-3 overall record with 50 strikeouts in 44.1 innings pitched, but returned in the tournament to toss four and a third, factoring heavily in the 7-6, come-from-behind victory over the College of Charleston in 12 innings with six strikeouts in 3.1 innings of three-hit relief. Biggest Surprises: The performance during fall workouts by freshman Jordan Smith came much to the delight of the Catamount coaching Returning starting pitcher Matt Benedict recorded a staff. Equally impressive during early season career-best nine victories on the hill during 2010. practices has been Andrew Chilcoat. Used primarily as a situational pitcher a season ago, the White Hall, Md., native could see his role increase some after throwing in a team-high 34 games last year. Pitching – Key Newcomers: Junior transfer Mike Gaffigan may factor into the starting rotation on the back end. The lanky left-hander who towers on the mound at 6-4 transferred from Triton College and has shown glimpses during off-season preparations. Two additional transfers – Kyle Deese from Walters State and redshirt sophomore LHP Morgan McKinney from Santa Fe CC – will be key as WCU looks to develop a handful of young pitching prospects.

POSITION PLAYER OVERVIEW: Key Losses: Despite returning nearly 50-percent of its home runs and a bulk of its RBI production, Western Carolina did lose a pair of big bats and a wealth of speed from last year’s squad. Senior Trevor Collias led the team with 14 home runs while classmate Tyler Kirkpatrick hit 13 long balls for the Purple and Gold. The two ranked second and third in total RBI for the Catamounts as well. A third senior, Dylan de Graaf, had 30 stolen bases while Collias added 19 for WCU. Kirkpatrick will be missed at third while Collias and de Graaf both exit from the outfield leaving just three position players on roster that saw time in the field a season ago. CATCHERS: Western Carolina returns a veteran catcher in redshirt senior Stephen Notaro, who was granted a fifth-year after suffering a broken leg two games into the 2010 season. Notaro, who caught 42 of the 57 games in 2009, will be joined behind the dish by a pair of freshmen, Adam Martin (Marietta, Ga.) and Luke Gragg (Moravian Falls, N.C.). Notaro, who homered in one of his three at bats last season prior to his injury, returns with 18 career homers including a team-leading 13 in the 2009 season. INFIELDERS: Anchoring the Catamount infield is junior Ross Heffley. The sure-handed second baseman has been steady at the plate for WCU over the past two seasons, pacing the team with a .391 average during his Freshman All-America season in 2009 and a .361 average a year ago despite battling hamstring issues midway through the year. He boasted a .984 fielding percentage and garnered preseason All-SoCon honors this year. Equally as solid at first is sophomore Tyler White, who dabbled with third base during the off-season but has again returned to the right-side corner because of his abilities with the glove. White was instrumental in WCU’s SoCon tournament run last year, driving in the two game-tying runs in the ninth inning of the come-from-behind, 12-inning upset of second-seeded College of Charleston and delivering the game-winning walk-off single in the second semifinal meeting with Appalachian State that eliminated the Mountaineers. Around the infield, senior Austin Schultz is expected to move to third base from his position at short a year ago, while freshman Aaron Attaway is penciled in to the middle of the infield at short for the opening weekend. Schultz hit .307 last season occupying the lead-off spot in 27 different games. OUTFIELDERS: All-SoCon selection Matt Johns will start in the outfield for WCU – just a matter of which of the three directions he will go. Johns, who ranked second on the team with a .346 batting average, had a strong second half of the season at the plate and earned SoCon All-tournament team accolades in Charleston. Cameron Dullnig also returns to the outfield, seeing his most extensive action in right field a season ago, while sophomore Bryant Noteboom represents the only other returning outfielder on roster. A host of newcomers including WCU baseball fall MVP Julian Ridings (Shelby, N.C.), Phillip Treadway (Fletcher, N.C.), Macon Smith (Greensboro, N.C.), Dykota Spiess (Morganton, N.C.) and Catamount football wide receiver, Jacoby Mitchell (Decatur, Ga.) will all factor into playing time in the outfield, and could also fill the designated hitter’s role – very similar to the situation WCU had in 2007.

Last year’s surprise out of the bullpen was walk-on right-hander Jeremy Sluder. The Ashe-

HEAD COACH

Bobby MORANDA

4th Season – Overall Record of 101-71-1 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 brought 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 three 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, and advanced to the Southern Conference tournament championship game during the 2010 season. During his first season at WCU, Moranda recruited and coached current Catamount second baseman Ross Heffley, who was the consensus Southern Conference Freshman of the Year in 2009 and was also a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-America selection. He also had Brent Greer named All-SoCon, 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 after being introduced to the WCU family. “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 col-

legiate 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 17 years. The couple has two children, daughter Taylor Jade and son Breyson Kade. 2011B AS E B A L L CATAMOUNT

DAVID HAVERSTICK Associate Head Coach / Pitching Coach

4th 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 nine 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.” In three seasons, Western Carolina’s pitching staff has featured a secondteam All-Southern Conference selections in Mike Tavernier and Matt Benedict, with Chris Masters garnering five SoCon Pitcher of the Week plaudits – the most of any one pitcher in the league. WCU boasted a pair of nine-game winners in 2010 as Benedict and reliever Brandon Johnson earning nine victories on the mound.

Former right-handed hurlers Corey Martin and Daniel Ottone also earned the weekly award while Garrett Ozar tabbed as a SoCon Pitcher of the Month during the 2009 season. Martin and Ottone were both drafted, advancing to the Triple-A level of minor league baseball early in their professional careers. 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). In 2007, SCAD had three pitchers with ERAs below 2.37, with five different pitchers striking out 43-or-more batters. Haverstick worked with Ryan Pope, who 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. Haverstick, who was a 16th-round draft selection by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 1997 and was in the system with the Diamondbacks, 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. “Haverstick has coached at a couple of institutions with limited resources, but has always managed to produce talented players,” concluded Moranda. Haverstick, a graduate of Bethel (Ind.) College, earned his bachelor’s degree in psychology while playing both basketball and baseball for the Pilots. He was an All-Mid-Central Conference selection in baseball as he helped the Pilots to the MCC baseball championship twice (1995,1997) and a berth in the NAIA Great Lakes Regional Tournament in 1997. On the hardwood, he was an NAIA All-American selection, highlighted by a NAIA Division II National Championship in 1997.

ALAN BECK Assistant Coach / Recruiting Coordinator 5th Season (Western Carolina, 2004) Western Carolina baseball alum Alan Beck returned to Cullowhee in mid-July, 2008 to jjoin Bobby Moranda’s staff working primarily with the Catamount hitters, as well as serving as the recruiting coordinator. 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 following his graduation from 2004 and ‘05. Beck returns to WCU 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 UT 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.

Those numbers additionally ranked on the SoCon all-time lists as he ended his career ranked fourth in RBIs, fifth in total bases, fifth in walks, fifth in runs scored, eighth in hits, eighth in doubles, eighth in at bats, ninth in home runs and 11th in games played (220). En route to winning SoCon Player of the Year honors in 2003, Beck led the SoCon in home runs (18), RBIs (71), runs scored (67) and walks (45), while ranking 30th in the NCAA in homers and tallying seven assists from left field. He was named to the TIAA/CREF Southern Conference All-Academic Team for Spring Sports, was a two-time Southern Conference 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 shortseason 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. He helped mentor outfielder Steven Strausbaugh to 2005 SoCon Freshman of the Year honors. The following year, Strausbaugh led the SoCon in home runs and RBIs and was tabbed first-team All-SoCon and was eventually drafted in the 37th round of the 2007 MLB Draft by the New York Yankees. In the summer of 2006, Beck served as manger of the Thomasville HiToms of the Coastal Plain League. Under his direction, the HiToms not only won a then franchise-record 33 regular-season games, but also the club’s first-ever league championship. The team finished with an impressive overall record of 37-23, leading the Coastal Plain League in hits, doubles, home runs and total bases. Beck completed his undergraduate degree in 2004, receiving his B.S. in Sport Management. He later attained his Master’s degree during his two-year coaching stint at WCU, earning an M.A. in Education in 2006. He was married to current Catamount cheerleading coach, Kim Cherry, of Denver, N.C., in mid-August of 2008.

2010 WESTERN CAROLINA BASEBALL – SEASON IN REVIEW NOTES Considered by most pundits as a bubble team down the stretch during the 2010 regular season, Western Carolina (37-21-1) made a late push for consideration for inclusion in the post-season field, winning 11 of its final 16 games and making a run through the Southern Conference tournament which was capped with the program’s 15th appearance all-time in the SoCon Tournament title game. Seeded sixth, the Catamounts throttled third-seeded Georgia Southern, 11-4, in the opening round to earn a Thursday night date with the No. 2 seed, College of Charleston. Trailing 6-0, the Catamounts rallied in the final four innings, tying the game with a two-RBI single by Tyler White in the ninth before winning in dramatic fashion in the bottom of the 12th inning as Ross Heffley scored on an error at home plate. With the bases loaded and one out in the third extra frame, Cameron Dulling laced a ground ball to first base. However, Greg Blake’s throw to the plate was off line and allowed Heffley to score the winning run from third after he had singled to open the frame. Beginning just after 9:30 pm, the four-hour and 25 minute game did not conclude until 2:00 am. On semifinal Saturday, WCU battled arch-rival Appalachian State twice with both games coming down to the final at bat. In the first game, the seventh-seeded Mountaineers got a pinch-hit, walk-off victory to force the second semifinal meeting. White again came up huge with a bases-loaded, walk-off single to right field to send Western Carolina to the championship game. The Catamounts’ 37 seasonal wins were the most under head coach Bobby Moranda, improving upon the 2009 total by two. With the win over College of Charleston in the SoCon Tournament, Moranda garnered his 100th victory at the helm in Cullowhee, another milestone accomplished last season. POST-SEASON NOTES: * Western Carolina finished the 2010 season with 37 wins marking the 23rd time since 1984 that a Catamount baseball team had eclipsed the 30-win plateau ... It is also WCU’s eighth 30-win season since 2000; * WCU went 18-6 against nonconference opponents last year ... Among the headline wins for WCU this year included a road win over regional participant – and nationally-ranked – Clemson at Doug Kingsmore Stadium, just the fourth win at Clemson for a Catamount team all-time ... WCU also swept the seasonal series with Atlantic-10 regular season champion, Charlotte, while also scoring wins over SEC-foe Tennessee, Illinois from the Big 10 and West Virginia from the Big East; * Western Carolina posted a 4-1 record against regional participant, College of Charleston, while also winning three of four against SoCon third-place finisher, Georgia Southern ... WCU tallied five wins against teams participating in the NCAA baseball tournament ... All told, the Catamounts scored 15 wins over top 100 RPI squads; * All of WCU’s wins in the SoCon Tournament came after the preceding game had gone into extra innings: the Catamounts’ opening round victory over Georgia Southern was delayed after the opening game of the tournament between ASU and CofC went into 11 innings; Elon and The Citadel played extra frames on Thursday before the Catamounts extra inning win over the College of Charleston; and finally, The Citadel eliminated Elon on Saturday afternoon in the semifinals in 10 innings just before WCU bounced Appalachian in the two squad’s second semi meeting;

9-TIME SOUTHERN CONFERENCE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT CHAMPION

11 NCAA TOURNAMENT APPEARANCES: 1985  1986  1987  1988  1989  1992  1993  1994  1997  2003  2007

The 2011 season marks the 34th that the Western Carolina University baseball program has called Ronnie G. Childress Field its home – and prior to first pitch, the facility received one of its most dramatic face lifts. Officially renamed Childress Field at Hennon Stadium in a dedication ceremony on April 23, 1994, off-season improvements such as the addition of a new brick back stop, lower level field seating, brick facade down both foul lines including bullpen benches, center field batter’s eye and the construction of a courtyard plaza heighten the game-day and playing experience at Childress Field / Hennon Stadium.… 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 581-228 record in 33 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 (pictured below), 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 chair-back 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 Bermuda 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 is planned for 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. A matching length “batter’s eye” in straight-away center field was added during the off-season. 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 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. Bardo has announced that he will step down as University Chancellor effective June, 2011, ending his 16-year stint in that post. 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.

INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS ROLE AN D 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.

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.

Southern Conference Code of Spectator Conduct Southern Conference teams shall be supported with enthusiasm and dedication, for strong spectator support is a vital part of the experience of college competition. We expect good sportsmanship from players and coaches. They have a right to expect the same from spectators. Therefore, we urge Southern Conference students, alumni and friends to cheer their teams to victory while upholding those ideals our colleges and universities have nurtured during the long history of the Southern Conference. Our spectators should be courteous and judicious in choice of expression, and should exhibit good manners and kindness to all others. The scoreboard will reflect the quality of the teams in competitions while the kind of support given by the spectators will reveal the character of Southern Conference fans.

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 emphasizing 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. 2011B AS E B A L L CATAMOUNT

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. MEE MBERS M M BERS HIP HI P HIS HI S TORY 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. CHAMPION CHA M P I ON S HIPS HI P S HIS HI S TTORY ORY 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.
