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.

So, fight on! you Catamounts, Fight to vic-to-ry! Western, Western, Go-Western! Go—Cats! Fight on! You Catamounts, Fight for purple and gold. Fight on to victory, True warriors bold. Wave the royal banner high, And let it fill the Western sky. So, fight on! you Catamounts, Fight to vic-to-ry!

Hail to thee, our Alma Mater Faithful, kind, and true; Every son and every daughter Offers praise to you. - Chorus Hail to the dearest spot of all; Hail to WCU! Light and life and fond devotion All to thee are due. Purple robes and colors golden, Streaming everywhere, Swell our hearts with pride for olden Days and friendships dear. - Chorus Under shade trees’ friendly bowers, Voices, ever gay, Mingles with breath of flowers And the song birds’ lay. - Chorus Shout aloud with one loud chorus, Voices clear and true, Lifted high in praise and honor, All for WCU! - Chorus -

Western Carolina Code of Fan Conduct It is the policy of Western Carolina University that all Fans at athletic sporting events must maintain the highest degree of credibility and decorum possible. All fans must make every attempt to conduct themselves in a manner as not to embarrass the institutions by their actions. Behavior by fans that does not meet this standard and which has the potential of harming the reputation of the institution or any of its units is prohibited. Good sportsmanship must be an integral part of every sport sponsored by WCU. The ethical environment of the university must assert and reflect primacy of human dignity, must encourage growth and achievement, and must insist on respect in all interpersonal relations. WCU students and fans must be held accountable for their use of profane and vulgar language, banners, posters, signs, flags, treatment of opponents, and treatment of officials. In respect to NCAA policies, WCU is held accountable for the actions of its fans.

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. 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.

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.

2013 SEASON PREVIEW 2013 WESTERN CAROLINA OVERVIEW: • WCU was picked second by the league’s head coaches but sixth by the voting media in the official SoCon tabulations ... the Catamounts were also tabbed anywhere from fourth by Baseball America; second by CollegeBaseballDaily.com; and to win that illusive 21st all-time conference championship by College Baseball Today; • On the hill, WCU returns 30 of its 32 victories (93.8%) including six-game winners in redshirt senior Morgan McKinney and classmate closer Preston Hatcher, who also had a team-high 10 saves en route to being tabbed first team AllSoCon. Six pitchers – all returners – had four-or-more wins including mid-week starting ace, senior Adam Curtis who had five victories, and weekend hurlers Jordan Smith and All-Freshman selection, Jeremy Null, with four wins apiece; • All told, WCU’s pitching staff returns 349 of its 399 strikeouts (87.5%) from the 2012 season; • Western Carolina returns all 56 starts and 30 victories on the mound from last season’s 32-win team, as well as nine of the 10 position starters … WCU returns all three weekend starting pitchers; • WCU brings back eight hitters which batted over .300 last season including senior Tyler White who hit .354 to help the Catamounts lead the SoCon with a collective .310 average … A total of 128 of the team’s 155 extra base hits are back in the Catamount lineup; • Five of WCU’s 2013 opponents – and a combined 12 games on the slate – are teams that participated in last year’s NCAA baseball championship tournament ... WCU also faces four teams for the first time in program history including Washington State (Feb. 15-17), Cincinnati (Feb. 24), Longwood (Feb. 26-27) and Hofstra (March 2-3).

CATAMOUNTS NAME 2013 TEAM CAPTAINS: Just before entering final exam week at Western Carolina, the Catamount baseball team announced its team captains for the 2013 season (pictured upper right). Three seniors – RHP relief Preston Hatcher, LHP starter Morgan McKinney and first baseman Tyler White – and one junior in outfielder Cody Jones have been selected to lead the team. Hatcher and McKinney led the Catamounts a season ago on the hill, both finishing with six victories apiece. Hatcher made a team-high 29 appearances - all out of the bullpen - and led the team with 10 saves to rank tied for second in WCU’s single-season record books and tied for third in the Southern Conference. A native of Atlanta, Ga., Hatcher was also named to the first team All-SoCon by both the league’s head coaches and voting media at the end of 2012. McKinney made 15 starts on the mound in 2012, tied for the most among WCU’s pitching staff. The Gainesville, Fla., native ranked second among the Catamount starting hurlers with a 3.74 ERA with his 68 strikeouts ranking second on the squad and just outside the top 10 in the SoCon. White was only one of three players to start all 56 games a season ago, leading the team with a .354 (75-for-212) batting average which ranked him fifth in the SoCon. He legged out 16 of his 37 career doubles a season ago and fielded an impressive .987 with 414 putouts - mostly at first base. White, a product of Forest City, N.C., is coming off a very solid summer that saw him earn mid-season All-Star plaudits and the Offensive MVP of the All-Star game in the Coastal Plain League with the Gastonia Grizzlies. The only underclassman selected as a captain, Jones hit .312 a year ago with eight extra base hits, and is coming off a very solid fall performance in the team’s College World Se2013 CATAMOUNT BASEBALL

ries intrasquad scrimmages. The Enka, N.C., native started 40-straight games to end the 2012 season making 50 total starts among his 53 combined appearances including 38 in right field. Jones finished tied for second on the team with 22 multiple hit games and had four multi-RBI performances and was selected second team all-conference in the outfield by the College Sports Madness staff.

FIVE CATAMOUNTS NAMED PRESEASON ALL-SOCON: • Led by preseason All-America selection Preston Hatcher, Western Carolina put a league-best five players on the preseason All-Southern Conference team as selected by the conferences’ 11 head coaches ... WCU’s five selections on the preseason squad are the most for WCU since 2008 when a total of six (three first team, three second team) Catamounts were honored ... WCU’s four second-team honorees were the most by one team on the second unit; • Preston Hatcher was a first-team selection and was joined on the preseason All-SoCon team by fellow senior captain Tyler White on the second team ... the duo was flanked by juniors Aaron Attaway and Julian Ridings, and sophomore Jacob Hoyle as the designated hitter; • Nine of the 11 SoCon schools placed at least one student-athlete on either the first or second teams as the coaches were not allowed to vote for their own players Elon and Samford trailed the Catamounts with four players listed among the top preseason players in the league. The Phoenix was joined by Appalachian State, sharing SoCon-best honors with three selections on the first team.

POSITION PREVIEW – INFIELDERS: Western Carolina again returns three-quarters of its solid infield – and should be the strength of the squad as it enters the 2013 season despite having to replace All-SoCon and All-American Ross Heffley at second base. Entering 2013, sophomore Bradley Strong will move from third to second to fill the void on the right side of the infield. Senior Tyler White is expected to move from first base to third base, a position he has played before through high school and summer league baseball. Junior Aaron Attaway (pictured below) resumes his position at shortstop where he has started all but one career game. Attaway batted .302 as a sophomore collecting 10 doubles and the coaching staff expects a breakout season in 2013 offensively. At first base, the Catamounts are deep with sophomore Austin Neary expected to start and split time with hardhitting classmate, Jacob Hoyle. In late game situations, the Catamounts could also move the sure-handed White back to the opposite corner. Hoyle could also see time as the team’s designated hitter, providing another deep threat from the left-side of the plate. Adding depth for the Catamounts will be freshmen infielders J.D. Long and Reece Strong, the younger brother of second baseman, Bradley.

POSITION PREVIEW – CATCHERS: Western Carolina has two players that will do the majority of the catching this season. Junior Adam Martin is an allconference caliber catcher who will be backed up by true freshman Danny Bermudez. Martin threw out 16 would-be base stealers as a sophomore in 2012, but was also a deep threat at the plate by hitting .281 with 18 extra base hits including nine doubles, two triples and seven home runs. Freshman Jason Smith is also listed as a catcher on the roster. However, he is expected to sit out the 2013 season, coming off an injury. He will assist at practices and during home games with bullpen catching duties. Moranda and the Catamounts also have position players Luke Gragg and Bryant Noteboom that could move behind the plate if the situation called for it.

11-TIME SOUTHERN CONFERENCE BASEBALL REGULAR SEASON CHAMPION

2013 SEASON PREVIEW MORANDA TABS MORGAN MCKINNEY AS LEGGETT NO. 7 LEGACY RECIPIENT Western Carolina senior pitcher Morgan McKinney has been selected this season’s “Leggett No. 7 Legacy” player as chosen by head coach Bobby Moranda and the Catamount baseball coaching staff. McKinney, a left-handed starter, will wear the No. 7 jersey which was made famous at WCU by former coaching great, Jack Leggett. McKinney, who was voted a 2013 team captain at the conclusion of fall workouts, is the third player to have the legacy honor bestowed upon. Former Catamount catcher Stephen Notaro was the first recipient with left-handed pitcher Vance Chavis receiving the honor in 2012. The annual program was introduced by Moranda at the “Celebration of Catamount Baseball” banquet held on campus in conjunction with the 2011 season-opening weekend that year. The WCU coaching staff selects one player each year that is committed to keeping with the principles and integrity established by the former Catamount skipper during his tenure. “Among the many great past individuals that have influenced the success and the prestige of Western Carolina baseball, Jack Leggett stands out above most. His legacy lives on here every day,” said Moranda of the Leggett Legacy tradition. “Every season, we will name one player who exemplifies what it is to be a Catamount baseball player and that is deserving to wear the No. 7 jersey to honor the foundation laid by Jack.” McKinney matched the team’s most victories on the mound in 2012, winning six games. He recorded at least two strikeouts in all but one start, posting five-or-more K’s seven times. In just his second career start, he fanned nine batters in six innings of work in picking up the victory against Fordham. He later struck out a career-best 10 in 6.1 innings against Davidson. He twice worked into the ninth inning against both the College of Charleston and Georgia Southern. A junior college transfer from Sante Fe College in Gainesville, Fla., prior to the 2011 season, McKinney underwent Tommy John surgery on his pitching elbow in 2010. As a redshirt sophomore in 2011, he ranked second on the WCU squad with 26 relief appearances, used in a left-handed situational role, finishing with 9.1 innings pitched. “It is an honor to bestow upon Morgan the `Leggett No. 7’ for this year,” said Moranda. “He is just outstanding. He went through Tommy John surgery out of junior college, came in here and has worked hard. He spent a year in relief and has really sacrificed. His attitude is just ‘A-plus’ in everything he does. He’s tough on the mound, really competes. He’s the perfect Jack Leggett guy.” Entering his senior season, McKinney has made 41 appearances including 26 out of the bullpen in 2011 and 15 starts a year ago. He’s tossed 93.2 innings with 82 career strikeouts. To earn the honor of the “Leggett No. 7 Legacy,” a Catamount baseball player must have a passion for the game of baseball; show total intensity daily; do more with less; use adversity as preparation for greatness; and be committed to the ideals of T.E.A.M. by displaying: T-Toughness, E-Effort, A-Approach to find a way to M-Make it Happen. The first year, catcher Stephen Notaro wore the honorary jersey No. 7 as the first honoree in the Leggett Legacy. Notaro hit .335 overall that season, and finished second to Catamount teammate Ross Heffley in the SoCon in hitting in league games only a season ago at .394 with six home runs and four doubles with 28 RBI. In 2012, fifth-year senior Vance Chavis donned the No. 7 jersey, finishing the year with 28 appearances to rank second on the team. The Laurinburg, N.C., native posted a 2.08 ERA through 26.0 innings pitched, striking out 25 batters. Leggett, who is entering his 20th season on the bench with the Clemson Tigers, spent nine seasons in the dugout in Cullowhee, amassing a program-best 302 career victories from 1983 through 1991. He guided the Catamounts to 10 combined Southern Conference championships and five NCAA tournament appearances. He also helped shape the future of WCU baseball by recruiting and coaching his three successors in Keith LeClair, Rodney Hennon and Todd Raleigh. Leggett’s three protégés combined to win 567 games and a combined eight SoCon titles in 15 seasons, while also capturing five SoCon Coach of the Year honors. “It is an honor to continue to be remembered in such a manner at Western Carolina,” said Leggett. “WCU and Catamount baseball is a big part of my life and coaching career. I am privileged to have that number 7 hanging on the fence at Childress Field / Hennon Stadium, and honored to have a deserving student-athlete wear the number during the season.” During his tenure as an assistant coach at Wake Forest, Virginia and Georgia Tech, Moranda coached against Leggett’s Clemson Tiger teams.

POSITION PREVIEW – OUTFIELDERS: Patrolling the outfield for Moranda will be a solid group of juniors. WCU is expected to start a trio of juniors from leftto-right across the outfield with Dykota Spiess (left), Julian Ridings (center) and Cody Jones (right) penciled in as the season starters. Ridings (pictured at the right) has the tools – speed, solid bat and is good in the outfield – that could lead to a junior Major League Baseball draft pick following the 2013 season.

On the back-end, Moranda expects sophomore RHP Tyler Powell to move into a set-up role with the plan to get the ball to preseason All-American closer, RHP Preston Hatcher, late in games to lock down the save. Hatcher enters his final season in Cullowhee bearing down on both the single-season and career saves record. The Atlanta, Ga., native collected 10 saves as a junior and is poised to duplicate or improve upon that performance in 2013 and will be critical to the Catamounts’ success. The Catamounts also return an experienced mid-week starter in senior LHP Adam Curtis who has been a staple in the mid-week rotation during his WCU career. Curtis has eight career victories entering 2013 including a career-best five in 2012. Western Carolina welcomes back redshirt junior RHP Taylor Sandefur who missed 2012 due to a shoulder injury. The Catamounts are hoping Sandefur can return to form that landed him the Friday night starter role midway through his freshman season in 2011, as well as the Valley League’s top pitcher award. A trio of returning southpaw relievers will help add depth to the Catamount bullpen, while also being viable options for starts. Seniors Jon Nadale and Hunter Brister are joined by fellow lefty Bryce Danielson, who sat out a year ago after transferring to WCU. The Catamounts also return RHP Danny Schneider and soft-tossing LHP William Frazier, both of which worked out of the bullpen in 2012. Moranda could also use utility infielder and designated hitter Jacob Hoyle on the mound for an inning or two during the course of the season. Five true freshmen and a junior college transfer will also find roles on the pitching staff throughout the year. The WCU coaching is very high on hard-throwing right-hander Jonathan Wazak (Wendell, N.C.) who could factor into middle to late inning relief, with fellow righty Colton Davis (Commerce, Ga.) expected to contribute this season.

The Catamounts have only one senior in the outfield in four-year letterwinner Bryant Noteboom, who is an accomplished outfielder who has been an invaluable substitute and pinch hitter the first three seasons in the Purple & Gold.

Left-hander Alex Barr (Hamptonville, N.C.) and former high school teammate Dillon Bray (Hamptonville, N.C.) could see time on the hill with John McClure (Albemarle, N.C.) offering another left-handed option with some collegiate experience coming out of USC Lancaster. Hard-throwing right-hander Thomas Young (Cary, N.C.) could work his way into the pitching rotation as the season progresses.

Adding depth to the outfield will be junior Luke Gragg and sophomore Dale Urquhart, Jr., who saw action in 31 games as a freshman. Gragg is likely to see a bulk of time as the team’s designated hitter with Austin Neary possibly joining the outfield rotation to help provide comfortable depth for Moranda and staff. CATAMOUNTSPORTS.COM

POSITION PREVIEW – PITCHERS: Entering the 2013 season, the Catamount pitching staff figures to be one of the best in the Southern Conference from top-to-bottom. WCU returns all three weekend starters including redshirt senior LHP Morgan McKinney, junior RHP Jordan Smith and hard-throwing sophomore RHP Jeremy Null. Smith is the most experienced starter, entering his third season among WCU’s weekend rotation. He has 10 victories and tossed three complete games. McKinney is in his third season in Cullowhee and second as a starter, with Null expected to move from Sunday to the Friday start in 2013.

HEAD COACH

Bobby MORANDA

6th Season – Overall Record of 156-126-2 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. In five 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 has also secured road wins over Clemson – sweeping the regular season series for the first-time in program history in 2012 – as well as at Georgia and Tennessee and advanced to the Southern Conference tournament championship game during the 2010 season. He also has a signature victory in the longest game in program and Southern Conference history as WCU outlasted and upset the top-seeded Elon Phoenix in the opening round of the 2011 SoCon Baseball Championship at Riley Park in Charleston, S.C. 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. Heffley went on to become a first-team All-America selection at second base at the conclusion of the 2011 season. Since Moranda has been in Cullowhee, 10 players on roster have been drafted by MLB squads including All-America selection Ross Heffley (18th Round, Atlanta Braves) in 2012, with Kyle Deese (23rd Round, St. Louis Cardinals) and Matt Benedict (30th Round, Pittsburgh Pirates) following the 2011 season. Two recruits in the 2011 season – right-handed pitchers Jeremy Null and Tyler Powell – were also drafted in ‘11, both opting to come to WCU in the fall of 2012. 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 65 players who have been selected in the baseball draft, 22 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 Community College, in Palatine, Ill. (1983-84); Eastern Kentucky University, in Richmond, Ky. (1985-86)

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.

COACHING EXPERIENCE: Assistant Coach at Eastern Kentucky (1987-98) Head Assistant Coach / Recruiting Coordinator at Virginia (1990-95)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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’s recruiting classes were annually ranked among the nation’s top classes, while his pitching staffs have attracted national attention from both col-

Moranda and his wife Pamela have been married for 19 years. The couple has two children, daughter Taylor Jade and son Breyson Kade.

ALAN BECK Assistant Coach / Recruiting Coordinator 7th 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 Catamount 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-Beck, of Denver, N.C., in mid-August of 2008. The couple had their first child – Easton James (pictured left) – in April of 2012.

Only pitching for the Catamounts for three seasons, Beverlin won 27 games and was the all-time, single-season leader in wins (12) and led the nation with a school and conference season strikeout record of 154. He also set league benchmark for consecutive wins in a season (11 in 1994) and most wins in a conference tournament in 1993. In addition, Beverlin was a two-time member of the SoCon All-Academic Team.

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, was 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, 2011, during a regular meeting of the board. Belcher, 53, assumed his new duties July 1, succeeding John W. Bardo, who stepped down after 16 years. 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 was UALR’s chief academic officer. In that role, he was 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 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 was 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 fundraising 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.

MR. RANDY EATON

Western Carolina University Director of Athletics Randy Eaton, former senior associate director of athletics at the University of Maryland, was named the director of athletics at Western Carolina University by Chancellor David O. Belcher on Wednesday, Dec. 14. Eaton, brings more than 20 years of athletics administration experience to the post. Eaton’s appointment followed a national search conducted by a 14-member committee working with the assistance of Todd Turner of Collegiate Sports Associates, a North Carolina-based executive search consulting firm. Eaton had been senior associate director of athletics at the University of Maryland and the athletics department’s chief financial officer since June 2008. He joined the Terrapins’ athletics program in 2003 as associate director in charge of business operations. At Maryland, he was the No. 2 administrator in the athletics department and oversaw a $60 million annual operating budget. He served as interim director in 2010, and recently assumed additional responsibility for new revenues, facilities and operations. He also has held positions at the University of Houston, Texas A&M University, East Tennessee State University, Ohio State University and the University of Texas at San Antonio, and with the Ohio Glory of World League Football. Belcher introduced Eaton to the news media, Catamount athletics fans and members of the campus community in a press conference in the in the Peele, Westmoreland Suhre, Hartshorn Hospitality Room of the Liston B. Ramsey Regional Activity Center. “When I talked with the members of search committee last month, I asked them to find someone who is a true leader - someone who has the capacity to hire, retain and mentor excellent coaches, assistant coaches and other athletics staff. I charged them with identifying a director of athletics candidate who shares Western Carolina University’s core values of excellence, student success and external focus. I am extremely pleased that the committee has found just that person in Randy Eaton,” Belcher said. “What impresses me most about Randy is his unwavering commitment to the studentathlete and the fact that he understands that the word `student’ is the most important part of that hyphenated term,” he said. “He is totally committed to the concept that these young people who come to our university are students first, and athletes second. That’s not to say that Randy does not want success on the fields and courts of play, because he shares the same expectations of excellence that I have for all of our sports teams. He has a passion for winning, and for winning the right way. But he also understands the role that athletics plays in the university and that it is not a stand-alone entity apart from the academy.” Eaton also has strong skills in fiscal management and developing athletics program budgets, which will serve WCU well during times of financial constraints, Belcher said. “His strengths will allow him to construct a strategically designed budget, manage our resources

very carefully, and guide the development of new resources through fundraising, increased ticket sales and additional corporate sponsorships,” he said. “He is extremely well-versed in NCAA compliance and issues of gender equity, and has substantial experience in strategic planning. Perhaps best of all, Randy is a great human being with a wonderful personality, and I believe he makes a great addition to our Catamount family.” Eaton’s career includes nearly seven years as part of the athletics department administration at East Tennessee State University, a former member of the Southern Conference, the intercollegiate conference in which WCU competes. “From my days at ETSU, my wife and I have fond memories of trips to Western Carolina for football and basketball games, and how friendly and warm the Catamount fan base was to the fans from ETSU. In addition to the affability of the fans, I was impressed that WCU was always a tough opponent, regardless of the sport,” Eaton said. “What solidified my decision to join the Catamount program was the family atmosphere I found on the entire campus during the interview process. This athletics program and the entire university are poised to take off to, and reach, new heights, and I want to be a part of that journey.” Eaton said he possesses an overarching desire to “win every game, graduate every student-athlete, and do it all with class” that helps him maintain a focus on what is most important - the student-athletes. “Additionally, I believe my years of varied experience within intercollegiate athletics have prepared me for this opportunity and will serve both myself and the entire athletics program well,” he said. “I would also like to think my straightforwardness and outgoing nature will benefit me in leading this department. I told people during my interview ‘what you see is what you get,’ and I meant it.” Eaton was selected from among approximately 75 potential candidates for the position, said Shea Browning, WCU associate general counsel and chair of the athletics director search committee. Seven candidates were interviewed by the search committee in Asheville. “The number of well-qualified candidates in the pool is a testament to how Western Carolina University is viewed beyond these mountains,” Browning said. “I am extremely excited with the selection and hiring of Randy Eaton. I believe his expertise and experience will carry the department of athletics to new heights. I also applaud the effort and the hard work of the search committee. Our task of selecting two finalists to recommend to Chancellor Belcher, from a very strong applicant pool, was a daunting one, especially given our time constraints.” Belcher appointed the search committee on Nov. 4 and tasked the group to find a permanent successor for C. Joseph “Chip” Smith, WCU’s former director of athletics who held the position from September 2004 until Oct. 25 of this year. Fred Cantler, WCU’s longtime senior associate athletic director for internal operations, who retired in March after 33 years of athletics administration, agreed to come out of retirement to serve as interim director of athletics. Belcher assigned the task force an ambitious, fast-track timetable so that a new leader for Catamount athletics could be in place perhaps as early as January. The first major responsibility of the new athletics director will be hiring a head football coach to replace Dennis Wagner, who resigned from the position Nov. 13 after four years in the post. Eaton said he is ready to get to work right away on finding the Catamounts’ next football coach. “I will focus on someone who will come in and concentrate on building a program, not simply a team,” he said. “There will be several qualities I will look for in our next head coach. Among them is a strong commitment to our student-athletes and a proven history of success. I also would like someone with recruiting ties and relationships within this area.” After serving in the U.S. Air Force, Eaton earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 1990 and his master’s degree in sports administration from Ohio State in 1992. He and his wife, Jeannette, are parents of one daughter, Alex, who is working in athletics administration at Maryland. Eaton’s boss at Maryland praised WCU for its decision. “He will do a great job as director of athletics,” said Kevin Anderson, director of athletics at Maryland. “In Randy, you get someone with both expertise in college athletics and a person who really cares about the student-athletes.” Deborah A. Yow, director of athletics at North Carolina State University, called Eaton “...a high-energy and results-oriented professional, held in high esteem by his peers,” while James Franklin, head football coach at Vanderbilt University, characterized Eaton as “...a first-class guy with tremendous experience.” “He is one of those I’ve worked with in college athletics that gets it,” Franklin said. “He understands college athletics, revenue and nonrevenue sports and how to make them coexist. He is a guy that will represent the athletics department and the university very well.”

11-TIME SOUTHERN CONFERENCE BASEBALL REGULAR SEASON CHAMPION

The 2013 season marks the 36th that the Western Carolina University baseball program has called Ronnie G. Childress Field its home. Prior to first pitch in 2011, 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 in ‘11 included 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 have helped 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 71 percent of their home games since then, with a 614-249-1 record in 35 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, San Diego State, South Carolina and North Carolina State to the facility in addition to the SoCon slate.

11-TIME SOUTHERN CONFERENCE BASEBALL REGULAR SEASON CHAMPION

The Southern Conference Conference,, which entered its 92nd season of intercollegiate competition in 2012, 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. MEMBERSHIP ME MBERS HIP HISTORY HIS 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. CHAMPIONSHIPS CHA M PION S HIPS HISTOR HIS TO R Y 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.
