The Citadel Track & Field


The Southern Conference

Sports In baseball, Wake Forest advanced to the championship game of the NCAA College World Series in 1949. Demon Deacon second baseman Charles Teague was named the CWS Most Valuable Player. The Citadel made history in 1990 by becoming the first military school to make an appearance at the College World Series. The Bulldogs were joined that season at the CWS by current conference member Georgia Southern. One of the Southern Conference’s more famous baseball alums is Duke’s Dick Groat. The Blue Devil shortstop, who was also a basketball standout, was the conference’s Athlete-of-the-Year in 1951 and 1952. He went on to a 14-year career in the major leagues. In 1960, he was named the National League MVP after he led the league in batting with a .325 average for the World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates. Among Southern Conference alums to grace Major League Baseball fields have been Atlee Hammaker (East Tennessee State), Jeff Montgomery (Marshall) and Mike Ramsey (Appalachian State). Other SoCon players to go on to a career in the major leagues include Angels third baseman Dallas McPherson (The Citadel), and pitchers Britt Reames (The Citadel) and Ryan Glynn (VMI) who both pitched with Oakland in 2005. Arnold Palmer, perhaps the most famous golfer to have ever lived, competed under the Southern Conference banner at Wake Forest. He took medalist honors at the Southern Conference Tournament in 1948 and 1949 and was the tournament’s runner-up in 1950. Palmer was the medalist at the NCAA Golf Championships in 1949 and 1950. Women’s sports are relatively young in the league’s history. In 199293, the Southern Conference celebrated its 10th Anniversary of women’s athletics. Furman golfer Dottie Pepper was named the Southern Conference 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. Most recently, Furman’s Brandi Jackson won the NCAA Women’s Golf East Regional in the spring of 2003. Coaches and Administrators The Southern Conference has also been a breeding ground for some of college athletics’ most recognized coaches and administrators. Legendary basketball coaches Adolph Rupp of Kentucky and Everett Case of North Carolina State both worked the sidelines in the Southern Conference. Lefty Driesell coached Davidson to three Southern Conference Tournament championships in 1966, 1968 and 1969. Former Georgia Tech coach Bobby Cremins earned league Coach of the Year honors three times in the late ’70s and early ’80s while at Appalachian State and is in his first season as head coach at the College of Charleston. As coach men’s basketball at Davidson Terry Holland was honored as the Southern Conference Coach of the Year for three consecutive seasons from 1970-72. J. Dallas Shirley, a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, spent 21 years as the assistant to the commissioner and supervisor of officials in the Southern Conference. The legendary Paul “Bear” Bryant got his coaching start in the Southern Conference as he guided the Maryland Terrapins in 1945. A legendary Southern Conference football coach is the late Frank Howard of Clemson, who guided the Tigers as a league member from 1940-52. The incomparable Howard won 69 Southern Conference games which still ranks tied for fourth on the league’s all-time coaching victories list. The Southern Conference has been represented on the sidelines at

Huddleston’s tenure has seen 48 conference champions, 184 All-Southern Conference honors bestowed, the first woman to compete in athletics at The Citadel, the first woman to win a conference championship at The Citadel and the first woman to compete in an NCAA Championship event in school history. Huddleston led the Bulldogs through the historic 2006 track and field seasons, which included thenjunior Stephanie McNeill entering the history books on several occasions and the women’s team doubled their best performance at a conference championship. McNeill set history by becoming the first woman from the Military College of South Carolina to qualify for an NCAA Championship event, throwing a qualifying mark of 47’ 9” in the shot put. McNeill won her flight in the shot put at the NCAA Regional Championships with a throw of 46’ 10.25” as she finished 15th overall. The women’s team finished sixth at the SoCon Outdoor Championships with a school record 48 team points scored. Huddleston, along with assistant coach Kris Kut, coached McNeill as she won the 2006 Southern Conference discus title with a throw of 141’ 2”, making her the first female cadet to win a SoCon Championship. Those accomplishments, along with regional and national media exposure, came in a 2006 track and field season that saw 22 school records broken, 19 athletes receiving All-Conference honors, three SoCon Athlete of the Week honors, two conference champions and two conference superlative honors. In addition, McNeill was named the SoCon’s Outstanding Field Performer and freshman Shaquill Smith was tabbed as Freshman of the Year after he won the high jump, placed fifth in the triple jump as he set a new freshman school record (47’ 4.25”) and placed eighth in the long jump. In 2005, Huddleston led the Bulldog men’s track and field team to its third fourth-place finish in five years at the SoCon Championships. Meanwhile, Huddleston’s 4x100m relay team of Marcus Cohen, Cameron Easley, Thomas Pressley and Quintin Wright took

Coaches and Staff home The Citadel’s fourth consecutive title at the Penn Relays in an event that features teams from every military academy in the country. Huddleston’s program first broke into the national headlines in the fall of 1997 when Mandy Garcia became the school’s first-ever female cadet-student-athlete and attracted unprecedented national media exposure as she set history. Garcia served as the lone member of the women’s cross country, indoor track and outdoor track “team” that year. Two years later, Peaches Hudson took second in the heptathlon and captured the institution’s first female All-Southern Conference honor. Huddleston came to The Citadel from Oklahoma Baptist in Shawnee, Okla., where he served as head coach for seven years. In 1984, he earned NAIA District IX Coach of the Year honors. Earlier that year, the Bison finished second at the league championships, the best track performance for the school in 10 years. An All-America decathlete at Florida Community College, Huddleston set a new national junior college decathlon long jump record in 1975. He transferred to South Alabama and went on to establish two school records. Huddleston graduated from South Alabama in 1977 with a bachelor’s of science degree in physical education. He earned a master’s degree in education two years later at that same institution. Huddleston has two children, Ryan (22) and Callie (17). He and his wife, Mary Ellen, have one daughter, Mary Kathryn (2).

Les

Robinson

Athletics Director l Seventh Year North Carolina State ‘65 At a school where leadership is taught and duty is part of the curriculum, The Citadel has the right person to lead its Department of Athletics in Les Robinson. A virtual Who’s Who in intercollegiate athletics and one of the region’s most sought-after speakers, Robinson is in his seventh year as the Bulldogs’ Director of Athletics. Possessing more than four decades of college athletic experience to his credit, Robinson, who also served as athletics director and basketball coach at North Carolina State and East Tennessee State, is only the fifth athletics director in Citadel history. He served as the Bulldogs’ basketball coach from 1974-85, having spent the five previous seasons as an assistant coach. During the past four years, the school witnessed the opening of the Altman Athletic Center at Johnson Hagood Stadium and the addition to McAlister Field House for women’s athletics. He hired the school’s first senior woman administrator, taken measures to totally revamp the department’s weight room, and is personally spearheading the football stadium project. The Citadel, under Robinson’s guidance, has hosted the Southern Conference cross-country championships, the first two rounds of the women’s basketball championships, the men and women’s tennis championships and the baseball tournament. A 1965 graduate of N.C. State, Robinson served five years as a Bulldog assistant coach under Dick Campbell and George Hill, and eventually spent 11 seasons as The Citadel’s head basketball coach from 1974-85. He directed the 1978-79 and 1984-85 teams to 20 and 18 victories, respectively. Robinson was named the Southern Conference Coach of the Year in 1979 and was tabbed South Carolina’s Coach of the Year in 1979 and 1985. The West Virginia native remains the only coach in Southern Conference men’s basketball history to earn league coach of the year honors at two different schools, and he ranks fifth on the conference’s list of basketball wins. Robinson returned to Raleigh and his alma mater prior to the 199091 basketball campaign to coach the Wolfpack and replaced Jim Valvano. Robinson promptly guided N.C. State to a 20-11 record and NCAA Tournament appearance while earning the NABC’s District Coach of the Year honor in his first season atop the Wolfpack program. His teams also enjoyed commendable academic success during the decade while graduation rates and grade point averages increased and the academic qualifications of incoming freshmen improved. He also posted the best career winning percentage against North Carolina of any ACC coach during his tenure. As athletic director at N.C. State from 1996-2000, Robinson oversaw a department with an operating budget of $25 million and sent 11 teams to postseason play. During his final year, the department witnessed a $1.1 million surplus. Robinson earned a bachelor of science degree in education and recreation from N.C. State in 1965. The Robinson’s, who have maintained a home on Sullivan’s Island since coaching at The Citadel, have four children: Greg, Robby, Kelly and Barbara; and eight grandchildren: L.G.

Following a banner year in 2006, the 2007 squad looks to be even stronger and have about the same depth the team has had in recent years. The 2005 squad broke 27 school and freshman records and the 2006 team topped that by breaking 30. The women’s squad had a school record sixth-place finish at the Southern Conference Outdoor Championships, doubling their best performance in terms of team points scored. Highlighting that record-setting performance was Stephanie McNeill, who became the first woman in school history to win a conference championship with her throw of 141’ 2” in the discus.

Sprints and Hurdles Jodi Whittle enters her junior year with every school indoor and outdoor record to her credit from the 400m down. Whittle has also been a member of every indoor and outdoor school record relay team. Whittle will be joined by an experienced Alexis Moore, a graduate student who currently holds five school records at her alma mater, the College of Charleston. Between the two, they will lead what will probably be the fastest corps of Bulldog sprinters in school history. Whittle and Moore will be joined by junior Felipa (Flipper) Reyes, who will drop down to the 400m to give the cadets some added depth after focusing on the 800m the past two years. Middle Distance Sophomore Megan Jenkins is expected to pick up where she left off last year after breaking 12 school and freshman records, including relays. Jenkins sat out the cross country season last fall with an injury but is expected to be at full strength by the start of the 2007 season. Jenkins will be joined by freshman Katheryn Gatewood, who broke the school’s cross country record in her first race as a Bulldog. Jenkins and Gatewood will be great training partners with both having run the 800m in under 2:17. Sophomores Erin Ritter and Sarah Strickland each hold several athletic accolades with Strickland entering the season with two school records. Along

Redshirt senior Alexis Moore (above) joins the Bulldogs in 2007 and will pair up with junior Jodi Whittle (below) in providing a tough 1-2 punch in the sprints and relays.

Senior Laura Hewston holds the school’s 10k record at 40:55.33.

Women’s Outlook with freshman Natalie Wolin, the trio will give the Bulldogs a very strong middle distance corps. Distance Seniors Laura Hewston and Amanda Rawl will lead the distance events, running the 3k and 5k indoors and the 5k and 10k outdoors. Hewston holds the school’s 10k record at 40:55.33 and is looking to drop that time under 40 minutes this year. Junior Veronica Barredo and freshman Heather Harris will provide depth to the distance events. Throws The 2006 Southern Conference Field Athlete of the Year, Stephanie McNeill, enters this season holding all of the school’s weighted throwing records with the exception of one – the hammer – which is held by sophomore Monique Edwards. Together, they will create a duo that will motivate each other as they will battle for each other’s records. Come outdoor season, juniors Allison Taylor and Laura Phelan, who placed fourth and fifth, respectively, at the 2006 SoCon Outdoor Championships, will return to battle each other for the javelin record. Taylor currently sits third in The Citadel’s record books while Phelan sits fourth. Both threw personal best marks at last year’s SoCon Championships. Jumps and Multi Events Junior Tasha Sanders is expected to continually improve in both the (indoor) pentathlon and the (outdoor) heptathlon as she continues to become stronger. Like Shaquill Smith, Sanders’ raw athleticism aided her in two top-five finishes in the combined events last year (fifth in the pentathlon, fourth in the heptathlon) and she looks to improve upon that this year. In addition, Sanders’ will compete in the open shot put and holds the school record in both indoor and outdoor hurdles. Freshman pole vaulter Lauren Fleming has her sights set on breaking both indoor and outdoor records this year.

Senior Stephanie McNeill returns to lead the Bulldog throwers in 2007.

Men’s Outlook

Sprints and Hurdles The Bulldogs have had three finalists in the 400m hurdles the past two years at the SoCon Championships. With the graduation of Thomas Cummings, juniors Jamel Brown and Dan Sagmiller will be looked upon to keep the finals appearance streak alive for The Citadel. Brown’s personal best time of 55.01 in the race puts him in the school’s top 10 list and he is set to improve upon that. All-SoCon seniors Thomas Pressley and Quintin Wright will lead a very large and talented group of sprinters in the 2007 season. Pressley had a very solid junior season while Wright was sidelined for most of the outdoor season with a hamstring injury. Wesley Merriweather returns for his second year after posting the sixth fastest indoor 60m time in school history. Junior Jonathan Vallejo should be much improved in the 400m and will get help from sophomore Bryan Hladik as they look to improve on the team’s second place finish in the 4x400m relay at the indoor championships. Senior Cameron Easley will make a transition to the 400m to give The Citadel some extra depth. Middle Distance Junior Matt Haight and sophomore Zach Harten will be looked upon to pick up the torch in the 800m after the graduation of four-time All-SoCon performer Marcus Butler. Haight and Harten will be joined by freshman Steven Dickey in the 800m. All-Conference seniors Charles Kutz and Will Wilson will look to have a very

DOGS

impressive senior year as both will be legs in the distance medley relay. Kutz will run both the 800m and the mile while Wilson will concentrate mostly on the mile. Junior Robert Isaac has improved tremendously and will be pushing Kutz and Wilson all year running the mile and the 3k.

Senior Quintin Wright will lead the Bulldog sprinters and relay teams back to the Penn Relays this year for the first time since 2004.

Seniors Matt Holmes (left) and Will Wilson (right) lead a talented crop of Bulldog middle and long distance runners.

Distance Senior Matt Holmes should improve greatly this season after missing most of 2006 due to injuries. After a stellar cross country season, Holmes is set to lead The Citadel in distance races. Holmes will be joined by Steven Craig in the 3k indoors while freshman Daniel Knight and Brendan Kight will be very competitive in the 5k and will be working on their 10k times throughout the season. Throws Following a fifth-place indoor finish and fourth-place outdoor finish in the shot put, Alex Croskey will be gunning for the podium and an All-Conference honor in his senior season. Croskey will be joined by freshman Kenny Stephens and both are capable of a very big throw. They have worked hard throughout the fall in preparation for a challenging season. Jumps Following a disappointing seventhplace finish at the indoor championships in the high jump, Shaquill Smith jumped a personal best 6’ 6.75” to win the SoCon Outdoor high jump title. Smith also placed third in the long jump and fifth in the triple jump at the outdoor championships en route to being named the 2006 SoCon Freshman of the Year. His raw athleticism allowed him to become a two-sport star in the fall as he became a starter on The Citadel’s football team. Hampered by a groin injury late in the season, Smith should be healed in time for the start of the track and field season.

The Military College of South Carolina

Seven seniors will lead The Citadel men’s track and field team in 2007 as the Bulldog men look to bounce back into the top three in the Southern Conference. After finishing third in the 2006 SoCon Indoor Championships, the men were edged by Davidson in the Outdoor Championships to finish fourth and are ready to overtake the Wildcats. A challenging 2007 schedule should help The Citadel as the Cadets will be competing in two prestigious meets in the Florida Relays and the Sea Ray Relays and, following the SoCon Outdoor Championships, The Citadel will compete at the Penn Relays.

Senior Alex Croskey is set to make an impact in the throws in 2007.

The Citadel Hall of Fame

They couldn’t remember if it was sunny, cloudy or rainy but they did recall meeting in Athletic Director Eddie Teague’s office on the second floor of McAlister Field House. They were certain, however, that it was hot outside. Forgive these aging men if they can’t recall minor items like the day’s weather. After all, it was more than a quarter century ago. On June 11, 1977, five volunteers from The Citadel Brigadier Club and two ex-officio committee members left Coach Teague’s air-conditioned office with papers in hand. Gen. George Seignious, The Citadel’s president, had endorsed the volunteers’ work and the hard-nosed Teague was pleased. Even the school’s attorney had given it his blessing. What those men walked away with on that suspected warm and humid day 29 years ago was the formation of The Citadel Athletic Hall of Fame. They brought a unique way to honor, recognize and keep the legacy alive of those who proudly wore the blue and white and who excelled on a higher plane on the various athletic fields, courts, rings, pools, ranges and tracks of competition. These celebrated combatants were clearly the best of the best. And they still are. The Citadel Athletic Hall of Fame Steering Committee consisted of Herbie Wilcox, his brother, John Wilcox ’56, Bob Daniel ’49, Bob McDowell ’55 and Stan Hurteau ’65. Jimmie Jones ’58 was the ex-officio member from the Brigadier Club and Jim Dodson ’55 represented the Association of Citadel Men. One of the first orders of business was that the Hall was to be jointly coordinated and operated by both the Association and the Brigadier Club. One benefit of membership in The Citadel Athletic Hall of Fame is receiving two free tickets to every home athletic event for life. Evidently, that perk was something that Teague, a hawk of a businessman, was reluctant to give away. “Eddie was tight,” Daniel remembers, “though he didn’t have much to start with. But I say with all sincerity that I was blessed that I was able to work with Eddie Teague. He was a wonderful man who was somewhat embarrassed to ask for anything, but he got things done.” Teague eventually relented, and the tradition of each Hall of Fame member owning two lifetime passes to all home athletic events continues. The first Hall of Fame induction ceremonies took place in Jenkins Hall and remained there until they were moved to McAlister Field House in the mid-1990s. The format for the ceremonies pretty much remains the same. The original class of inductees included Cecil Johnson ’11, Richard King ’29, W.F. “Gunner” Ohlandt ’51, Paul Maguire ’60 and John Small ’70. Today, there are 138 members in The Citadel Athletic Hall of Fame, of which 54 are deceased. Membership encompasses the sports of football, basketball, baseball, track and field, wrestling, soccer, boxing, rifle, tennis, golf and swimming. The Hall’s by-laws permit only four athletes and one “honorary” member to enter in each calendar year. Eighteen of the Hall’s inductees have entered as “honorary” members. Most of the honorary inductees are coaches while others are former administrators or boosters. However, one is a trainer (William Boswick) and another (George Norwig) is the first “Voice of the Bulldogs.”
