O. Perry Earle, Jr. Tennis Center & Donald C. Bunch Courts

Named for O. Perry Earle, Jr., a 1936 Citadel graduate and former varsity tennis player, the Earle Tennis Center is the headquarters of the Bulldog tennis program. Finished in the spring of 1990, the center houses two locker rooms, a coach’s office, an equipment room and meeting room. The Don C. Bunch Courts, named after a long-time Citadel administrator and tennis coach of 30 years, received a major facelift in the fall of 1995 with Laykold resurfacing, new windscreens and new fencing. In addition, the entire area was landscaped to blend with the campus. Lights were added to three courts in the fall of 1998.

2007 SEASON REVIEW Bulldogs Faced Tough 2007 Schedule

The Citadel Tennis team struggled through a very tough schedule in the 2006-07 season as they added three nationally ranked opponents to an already tough Southern Conference lineup. The Bulldogs finished the season with a disappointing 2-21 overall record, going 0-9 in the SoCon. Juniors Daniel Dossetor and James Eason had a solid year, both receiving All-Conference honors. Dossetor and Eason’s doubles team received All-Southern Conference First Team honors while Dossetor also received AllSoCon First Team singles honors. Dossetor was ranked 118th nationally in singles during the first half of March, and the duo of Dossetor and Eason began their 2007 season ranked 20th nationally. Dossetor and Eason became the first Bulldog tennis players ever to be recognized nationally. Dossetor and Eason finished the fall season with an 11-2 mark in doubles competition. The pair had a Cinderella story run through the ITA Regional Championships in the doubles bracket as they defeated 14th-ranked Ytai Abougzir and Maciek Sykut of Florida State, 9-7 and Duke’s Joey Atas and David Goulet, 8-5, at the ITA Regional Championships. The duo fell in the semifinals of the ITA Regional Championships to Georgia Tech’s George Gelesiani and David North, 8-5. However, they continued their impressive fall, winning the USC Fall Invitational doubles crown after topping Coastal Carolina’s David Mellis and Elliott Quibell in the finals, 8-3. The two of them also recorded a perfect 3-0 record at the Charleston Fall Challenge. The Citadel opened the season on the road with three tough losses at 37thranked North Carolina State, 25th-ranked Clemson and in Colorado Springs, Colo. against Air Force. The Bulldogs did, however, pickup their two wins of the season in Colorado Springs sweeping Idaho State and South Dakota State, 7-0. The Bulldogs came up short in very close matches against Coastal Carolina (43), Charleston Southern (5-2) and East Carolina (4-3). The Dogs then traveled to Chattanooga for their first Southern Conference game of the season, but fell to the Mocs, 6-1. The Dogs returned home to face Illinois

18

State and Appalachian State, but came up short in both matches losing 5-2 in each. The Bulldogs then played three consecutive nationally ranked teams beginning at 30th-ranked Tennessee, hosting 45thranked Drake and a conference match against 44th-ranked Elon. The Dogs did not perform as well as they had liked to against the stiff competition losing, 6-1 (UT), 7-0 (Drake) and 6-1 (Elon). The Bulldogs then headed back out on the road to play UNC Charlotte and UNC Wilmington before wrapping up the regular season with seven straight conference games. The Dogs again found trouble on the road losing both games, first a 5-2 decision to the 49ers and a 6-1 result to the Seahawks. The Citadel then hosted 59th-ranked Furman and Wofford at the Earle Tennis Center before traveling to Davidson. Unfortunately, the Bulldogs could not get any momentum going as they had disappointing showings in each match losing by a score of 6-1 in all three outings. Still out on the road, the Bulldogs headed from Davidson to Greensboro where the Dogs showed that they still had some fight left in them giving UNCG all that they could handle in a 4-3 loss to the Spartans. After being swept by cross-town rival and 58th-ranked College of Charleston, the Bulldogs headed to Statesboro to finish off the season. The Bulldogs battled down to the very last match, but the Eagles would find a way to win, 4-3. This would not be the last time that the two teams would meet though as the 10th seeded Bulldogs drew the eighth seeded Eagles in the first round of the Southern Conference tournament. The Citadel rallied from a 3-0 deficit of Georgia Southern in the conference tournament to pull within one at 3-2, but Derek Jose was upended at No. 4 singles as Georgia Southern eliminated the Bulldogs from the tournament ending their season. The Citadel lost lone senior Derek Jose, but welcomes back All-Southern Conference honorees Dossetor and Eason along with returning junior Martin King, sophomores Alberto Diaz and Frederic Petrilli for the 2007-08 season.

SOUTHERN CONFERENCE The Southern Conference, which began its 87th season of intercollegiate competition in 2007, is a national leader 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 also excelled as the premier Football Championship Subdivision conference. Southern Conference member Appalachian State has won the last two Football Championship Subdivision titles. The Conference currently consists of 11 members in four states throughout the Southeast and sponsors 19 varsity sports and championships that produce participants for NCAA Division I Championships. 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 conference institutions. The Southern Conference office is located in the historic Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, S.C. A textile mill that was in operation from 1880 until 1999, the Beaumont Mill was renovated in 2004 and today offers the SoCon a first class meeting area and offices as well as a spacious library for storage of the conference’s historical documents.

25th Anniversary of Women’s Championships

The Southern Conference will celebrate 25 years of women’s championships in 2007-08. A year-long celebration of women’s sports will highlight student-athletes, coaches and teams. Commissioner Ken Germann spearheaded the Southern Conference’s expansion to include women’s athletics. The Germann Cup, named in honor of the former commissioner, annually recognizes the top women’s athletics programs in the conference. From its humble beginnings, women’s athletics have become an integral part of the Southern Conference and its success. The league crowns champions in nine women’s sports including cross country, soccer, volleyball, indoor track & field, basketball, tennis, golf, outdoor track & field and softball.

Membership History

The Southern Conference was formed on February 25, 1921 at a meeting in Atlanta, Ga. as 14 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, LSU, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tulane and Vanderbilt - joined the fold. A year later, the University of the South joined the ranks. VMI became a member in 1925 and Duke was added 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 from 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 came about in 1953 when Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest 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 local rivals. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that spans four Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. Current league members are Appalachian State, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Chattanooga, Western Carolina and Wofford. On July 1, 2008, Samford will officially join the league, brining membership of the conference to 12.

Leadership

John Iamarino was officially named commissioner of the conference on January 2, 2006. Previously, Iamarino served as commissioner of the Northeast Conference. In nine years with the New Jersey-based league, Iamarino promoted the conference through an ambitious agenda which improved competition, upgraded compliance-related matters and increased the marketing and brand awareness of the conference and its member institutions. The Southern Conference named its first commissioner in December 1950. Duke head football coach Wallace Wade made the transition from Blue Devil football coach to athletics administration as the first person at the helm of the conference. Lloyd Jordan replaced Wade as the commissioner in 1960 and served a 14year term until Ken Germann became the league head in 1974. Germann was the commissioner for 13 years and orchestrated the league’s expansion to include women’s athletics. In 1987, he was succeeded by Dave Hart who spearheaded the transfer of the league office from Charlotte, N.C. to Asheville, N.C. Wright Waters succeeded Hart upon his retirement in 1991. Under Waters’ leadership, the Southern Conference expanded to 12 members, added three women’s sports and posted record revenue from the basketball Tournament. Waters, who is currently the commissioner of the Sun Belt Conference, was followed by Alfred B. White in 1998. White, a veteran member of the NCAA office, introduced the current SoCon logo and elevated the conference’s commitment to marketing and development of corporate partners. He became the president of the Asheville franchise of the National Basketball Development League in 2001. Danny Morrison headed the conference from 2001-2005 and orchestrated the league’s move from Asheville, N.C. to historic Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, S.C. Under Morrison’s leadership, the conference increased its marketing and promotional efforts.

Championship History

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, league championships were held in volleyball, basketball and tennis. 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 & field, tennis, golf and softball.

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

Les Robinson

Athletic Director Eighth Year N.C. State (Class of ‘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. In his eight years leading The Citadel’s athletics program, Robinson’s skills as a proven fund-raiser have already benefited The Citadel Brigadier Foundation. Robinson has been faced with having to hire three football coaches during his tenure. The process in which he hired Ellis Johnson, John Zernhelt and current coach Kevin Higgins , featured a coast-to-coast whirlwind tours of the entire Citadel family, and was received extremely well. He was successful in getting numerous people to talk about Citadel football months in advance. He recently hired basketball coach Ed Conroy, and administratively, has realigned the Athletics Department’s administration. During the past five 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.

This is The Citadel...

The Citadel is a state-supported comprehensive military college with the mission of educating principled leaders through its Corps of Cadets. Males and females are admitted to the undergraduate residential Corps of Cadets. In addition to the day program, undergraduate and graduate programs are offered through The Citadel Graduate College (CGC) in the evening. The South Carolina Commission on Higher Education recognizes The Citadel as the only specialized four-year college in the state. The Citadel, founded in 1842, is a co-educational military college with a rich and storied history. Located in Charleston, S.C., the institution offers a classic military education for young men and women who seek a college experience that is intense, meaningful and academically strong. Citadel graduates say that the disciplined lifestyle and friendships they forged here have a profoundly positive effect on their lives. With an enrollment of more than 1,900, the Corps of Cadets is the nation’s largest military college program outside the service academies. All cadets are educated within a classic military system and about 40 percent of the graduating seniors earn military commissions. The remaining graduates attend graduate school or enter the job market. The Citadel Graduate College, which is noted for Citadel excellence in a civilian environment, serves about 1,200 residents of South Carolina’s Lowcountry. Academic programs at the college are complimented by a strong commitment

to service and emphatic support of an honor code that calls upon a cadet not to lie, cheat or steal nor tolerate those who do. Since its founding in 1842, The Citadel’s emphasis on character, as well as intellect, has produced generations of graduates who have served their nation, their professions and their communities with distinction.

Corps of Cadets ...

While roughly 40 percent of the graduates each year go into the armed services, all cadets participate in an ROTC program. On most days, cadets have physical fitness training and military instruction in addition to their regular college classes. Weekdays end with a formation and required evening study period.


This is The Citadel...

Because The Citadel emphasizes corps unity, cadets cannot be married and all must live on campus in the barracks with their assigned company. Despite the challenges, cadets value their first year for the lessons in teamwork, selfdiscipline and time management. The disciplined lifestyle that begins in the knob year binds cadets into a lifelong, close-knit camaraderie that is one of the strongest forces in their lives after graduation.

Academic Programs...

Because of the strength of the academic program, The Citadel has repeatedly been rated as a top regional institution in the annual rankings issued by U.S. News and World Report.

Honor

“A Cadet does not Lie, Cheat or Steal, nor Tolerate those who do.” The Honor Code is fairly simple. This code, while simple, offers the key to living and maintaining an honorable life. Cadets are trained that there is never a situation in which they should participate in, or tolerate, dishonorable activities. These core values of honor and integrity are exactly the values which allow Citadel cadets and alumni to improve their organizations and their communities. Honor is the most cherished principle at The Citadel. In today’s post-corporate-scandal society, honor, integrity, and ethics are in high demand. The Citadel strives to achieve excellence in the education of principled leaders, also known as the “whole person” concept. The Honor Code encompasses all aspects of cadet life, from academic integrity to personal integrity. It has evolved from an unwritten tradition known as the “code of the gentleman” to a formalized code in September of 1955, when the Corps of Cadets unanimously voted to establish The Honor Code. The development of a cadet into a principled leader is a four-tiered process that includes knowing, adhering, believing, and leading. Its culmination is seen in the cadets who internalize the Code and the alumni who continually apply it throughout their lives.

Sir, Yes, Sir • Sir, No, Sir Sir, No Excuse, Sir “...three permissible knob answers: ‘Sir, yes, sir’ and ‘Sir, no, sir’ and—I liked this third one best of all—’Sir, no excuse, sir.’ By golly, I think, we ought to send the entire U.S. Congress down here to learn answer number three”... “Then I read this friendly advice in the book: ‘When you receive an order, carry it out to the best of your ability. Never argue or offer suggestions which you think might be better. This is not in your best interest.’ Well, it seems to me that The Citadel has a few things to teach the Cabinet and the Executive Branch, too! In fact, maybe we should just put the whole federal government through cadet training!” The Honorable Ronald Reagan Former President May 15, 1993 Whatever their major, all cadets will graduate with a “dual degree” in leadership. They learn about attention to detail, respect, time management, and discipline. “Leadership is about integrity, trust and people. The Citadel, with its mission to prepare graduates to be pricipled leaders, is all about integrity, trust and people.
