Southern Conference History The Southern Conference, which began its 88th season of intercollegiate competition in 2008, is a national leader in emphasizing the development of the student-athlete and in helping to build lifelong leaders and role models. The Southern Conference has been on the forefront of innovation and originality in developing creative solutions to address issues facing intercollegiate athletics. From establishing the first conference basketball tournament (1921), tackling the issue of freshmen eligibility (1922), developing women’s championships (1984) and becoming the first conference to install the three-point goal in basketball (1980), the Southern Conference has been a pioneer. The Southern Conference is the nation’s fifth-oldest NCAA Division I collegiate athletic association. Only the Big Ten (1896), the Missouri Valley (1907), the Pacific 10 (1915) and the Southwestern Athletic (1920) conferences are older in terms of origination. Academic excellence has been a major part of the Southern Conference’s tradition. Hundreds of Southern Conference student-athletes have been recognized on ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic AllAmerica and all-district teams. A total of 19 Rhodes Scholarship winners have been selected from conference institutions. The Conference currently consists of 12 members in five states throughout the Southeast and sponsors 19 varsity sports and championships that produce participants for NCAA Division I Championships. The Southern Conference offices are located in the historic Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, S.C. A textile mill that was in operation from 1880 until 1999, Beaumont Mill was renovated in 2004 and today offers the league first class meeting areas and offices as well as a spacious library for storage of the conference’s historical documents. Membership History On Feb. 25, 1921, representatives from 14 of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association’s (SIAA) 30 members met at Atlanta’s Piedmont Hotel to establish the Southern Intercollegiate Conference. On hand at the inaugural meeting were officials from Alabama, Alabama Polytechnic Institute (Auburn), Clemson, Georgia, Georgia School of Technology (Georgia Tech), Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi A&M (Mississippi State), North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Polytechnic Institute (Virginia Tech) and Washington & Lee. Dr. S.V. Sanford of Georgia was chosen as acting chairman and N.W. Dougherty of Tennessee was named secretary. The decision to form a new athletic conference was motivated by the desire to have a workable number of conference games for each league member. With 30 schools in the SIAA by the early 1920s, it was impossible to play every school at least once during the regular season and many schools went several years between playing some conference members. In addition, in 1920, the SIAA voted down proposed rules that an athlete must be in a college a year before playing on its teams and refused to abolish a rule permitting athletes to play summer baseball for money. Play began in the fall of 1921 and a year later, six more schools joined the fledgling league including Tulane (which had attended the inaugural meeting but had elected not to join), Florida, Louisiana (LSU), Mississippi, South Carolina and Vanderbilt. VMI joined in 1925 and Duke was added in 1929. By the 1930s, membership in the Southern Conference had reached 23 schools. C.P. “Sally” Miles of Virginia Tech, president of the Southern

Conference, called the annual league meeting to order on Dec. 9, 1932 at the Farragut Hotel in Knoxville, Tenn. Georgia’s Dr. Sanford announced that 13 institutions west and south of the Appalachian Mountains were reorganizing as the Southeastern Conference. Members of the new league included including Alabama, Alabama Polytechnic Institute, Florida, Georgia, Georgia School of Technology, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Mississippi A&M, University of the South, Tennessee, Tulane and Vanderbilt. According to the minutes of the meeting, Dr. Sanford stated that the division was made along geographical lines. Florida’s Dr. J.J. Tigert, acting as spokesman for the withdrawing group, regretted the move but believed it was necessary as the Southern Conference had grown too large. The resignations were accepted and the withdrawing schools formed the new league which began play in 1932. The Southern Conference continued with membership of 10 institutions including Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Virginia, VMI, Virginia Tech and Washington & Lee. The second major shift occurred some 20 years later. By 1952, the Southern Conference included 17 colleges and universities. Another split occurred when seven schools including Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest departed to form the Atlantic Coast Conference which began play in 1953. The revamped Southern Conference included members The Citadel, Davidson, Furman, George Washington, Richmond, VMI, Virginia Tech, Washington & Lee, West Virginia and William & Mary. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that includes 12 institutions and a footprint that spans five states: Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Georgia. Current league members are Appalachian State, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Samford, Chattanooga, Western Carolina and Wofford. 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. Commissioner Germann spearheaded the Southern Conference’s expansion to include women’s athletics 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 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 Southern Conference 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.

Bulldogs Jody Huddleston Head Coach 23rd Year South Alabama ‘77 Entering his 23rd year at The Citadel, head cross country and track and field coach Jody Huddleston continues to lead one of the most successful programs at The Citadel and in the Southern Conference. Huddleston’s tenure has witnessed 53 conference champions, 220 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. In addition, The Citadel has set seven NCAA Regional qualifying marks under Huddleston’s tenure since the implementation of the regional championship system in 2003. Last season, Huddleston led Jamel Brown to his first Southern Conference title in the 400m hurdles and led another Bulldog to qualify for the NCAA regional. The Citadel men finished fourth at the SoCon Indoor Championships in Clemson, S.C. and The Citadel women finished eighth. Tasha Sanders scored 14 of the 22 points that the women’s team collected. Sanders also broke several Pentathlon school records and picked up All-Conference honors. At the SoCon Outdoor Championships Brown brought home a title for the Bulldogs and The Citadel men finished in third place. Brown picked up All-Conference as well as Jimmy Harris for finishing third in the high jump. The Citadel women placed seventh overall with Sanders and Monique Edwards tabbed All-Conference honors. Huddleston also coaches off the track placing 12 men and women Bulldogs on the Southern Conference Winter Academic All-Conference Team. The 2007 season, Huddleston witnessed four Southern Conference Championships as the women’s team recorded their best finish in school history. Senior Stephanie McNeill brought home three individual titles (20lb. weight throw, hammer, shot put) while junior Tasha Sanders won her first SoCon crown (heptathlon). The Citadel women placed a record fifth at the SoCon Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Boone, N.C., scoring a program-best 56 points. The men’s team showcased a stellar hurdles squad, placing two finalists in the 110m hurdles and three in the 400m hurdles at the SoCon Outdoor Championships. The fourth place finish by the men’s team marks the seventh time in the past eight years the Bulldog men have finished fourth. Huddleston led the Bulldogs through the historic 2006 track and field seasons, which included then-junior Stephanie McNeill entering the history books on several separate occasions and the women’s team doubling 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, guided 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. Moreover, 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. Huddleston’s program first broke into the national headlines in August 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 three children, Ryan (24) and Callie (19,) while him and his wife, Mary Ellen, have one daughter, Mary Kathryn (4). Mary Ellen also works at The Citadel in the Health, Exercise and Sport Science Department while serving as the Director of Intramural Athletics.

Kris Kut Assistant Coach/Recruiting Ninth Year The Citadel ‘00 Kris Kut is in his ninth year as a coach at The Citadel and his third as the recruiting coordinator. Kut has watched from the sidelines as school records for the track and field and cross country teams have fallen over and over again. Kut, who focuses mainly on the field events, has helped coach 17 conference champions during his tenure at The Citadel, including the school’s first female to win a conference championship, Stephanie McNeill. Kut guided McNeill to a total of four SoCon titles as she also became the first female from The Citadel to qualify and compete in an NCAA Championship event. Under his tutelage, The Citadel’s cadet-student-athletes have won 119 AllConference honors and numerous school records have fallen, including 23 during the 2007 season and 45 over the past three seasons. In 2008, Kut helped Edwards to her All-Conference honors and helped the men’s team to finish fourth for the eighth time in nine years at the SoCon Outdoor Championships. The women’s team finished seventh with Jodi Whittle, Tasha Sanders, Sarah Strickland, Heather Harris, Natalie Wolin, Allison Taylor and Katheryn Gatewood with Wolin and Sanders breaking school records.

This year’s team will count heavily on graduate student Jodi Whittle, and senior Monique Edwards for points as The Citadel has arguably the most talented women’s team yet. With the returning upperclassmen and the talented nine-member freshmen class, the Bulldogs will strive to build upon recent successes.

T H E C I T A D E L

Sprints and Hurdles Whittle will put the finishing touches on a stellar track career as she holds and shares 10 indoor and outdoor school records. She will be the workhorse participating in 11 different indoor and outdoor events. Whittle is joined in the hurdle events by freshman All- State performer Brillyance Gilchrist-Poteat, Francesca McCrary and Erinn Carter. All will give the Bulldogs an immediate edge. These cadets will also run in the sprint events and the relays. Whittle, Carter and Heather Harris will also compete in the 400 meters. Sarah Creel returns for her sophomore season after running the sixth fastest indoor 60 meter time in school history, the seventh-best indoor 200 meters and the 10th best indoor 400 meters. Creel followed that with the third-fastest outdoor 200 meters and fourth-fastest ever 100 meters. Rounding out the sprint group with be The Citadel’s first ever high school All-American and three-time state champion Caitlyn Lees, who will run the 100m, 200m and relays.

2009 Men’s Outlook

With the loss of five seniors to graduation, a more experienced men’s team will hit the track in 2009. The senior leadership will be leaned upon Matt Earls, Zach Harten, Zach Johnson, Preston Kight, Caleb Moore, Corey Robinson, Jim Sanyi and Jose Trinidad to lead this year’s team. Southern Conference 400m hurdle champion and runner-up for high hurdles, Jamel Brown returns to complete his eligibility as a graduate student. Sprints and Hurdles Brown will look to defend his 400m hurdle title as well as set his sights on both the indoor and outdoor high hurdle titles. Brown finished second in outdoor competition and third for indoor competition during his 2008 senior tenure. Freshmen Aaron Overton and Christopher Graham will also compete in the high hurdles and will give the Bulldogs two additional quality hurdlers that will look to make the finals for both the indoor and outdoor seasons. Following a down year in the sprints, Coach Kut’s recruiting efforts has allowed the Bulldogs to reload with a very talented group of freshmen. Twin brothers, Christopher and Christian Graham won state championships in the 4x100m and 4x400m relays for Dorman High School during their senior year. Anthony Guilliams will also be a member of the 4x100m relay and joins Christian in the short sprints. Sophomores Matt Sheaffer, Ellis Anderson and Maurice Washington will handle the 400-meter duties and look to replace former Bulldogs Jonathan Vallejo and Bryan Hladik. Vallejo and Hladik helped The Citadel to finish second in the 4x400m relay at both the indoor and outdoor championships. Middle Distance and Distance Johnson will lead a talented group of 800m/milers that include freshman

Frankie Dioguardi, Harten and sophomore Joe Tkach. Dioguardi posted 1:56 for 800-meters and marked 4:19 for the mile while in high school. Johnson also had a breakout year as a junior running the fifth fastest indoor 800 meters in school history (1:56.49) at the University of Florida. Johnson followed that with the sixth best outdoor 800-meters running 1:53.87 at Clemson. Freshman Chris Morgan, an All-State performer, will add significant depth in the 800-meters as well as Harten, Tkach and Sanyi. Brendan Kight is an all-purpose runner that is effective in any race from the 800m through the 5,000. Kight has been the Bulldogs number one cross country runner for the past two seasons. Kight will also run on some of the relays and was a member of the fifth-place distance medley relay team at the SoCon Indoor Championships. Sophomores Chris Fallis and Zach Yereb will add much needed depth in these events and this trio will have a strong showing in the mile and 3k indoor events. Most of the 5,000 and 10,000 duties will go to junior Alex Anderson, sophomore Nathan Jackson and freshman P.J. Wasilchak, all who showed promise during the cross country season. Throws The 2009 team will be led by Earls as the team captain. Earls has finished fourth for the past two seasons in the javelin at the SoCon Championships. Austen Ditzhazy showed a great deal of promise his freshman year and will show significant improvement

for the 2009 season. Sophomore Quintin Turner should have a successful season after having some good practice throws during pre-season practice. As the season progresses, Turner will show marked improvement in the 35lb. weight throw and the hammer. Robinson and Chris Castagno have had a solid offseason program in the weight room and their hard work will stand in the shot put. William Norris will give the Bulldogs some added depth in the throws. Jumps and Multi-events The Bulldogs hope to see the return of 2006 SoCon Freshman of the Year and SoCon Champion, Shaquill Smith. Smith did not participate last year as a result of an injury to his Achilles tendon. Sophomore James Harris was a big surprise during his freshman campaign finishing fourth indoors and garnering All-Conference honors in outdoors for the high jump. Smith and Harris will be joined by Overton who was impressive during pre-season practices. Smith, who also holds the freshman school record in the triple jump, will get help from Preston and freshman Shane Woodard in both the long and triple jumps. Sophomore Brian Baize will show huge improvement this year following a sixth place indoor finish in the heptathlon and fourth place outdoor in the decathlon. Joining Baize will be freshmen Ben Schwenk and Mason Sullivan in the decathlon as well as the pole vault where all three reached over 13 feet. These men should also create records in both the heptathlon and decathlon. Moore and Trinidad will add depth to these events as well.

The History Behind The Citadel Hall of Fame

73

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.”

This The Military is College The of South Citadel Carolina

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. Graduates of The Citadel say that the disciplined lifestyle and friendships they forged here have a profoundly positive effect on their lives.

T h i s

With an enrollment of more than 2,000, 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 The Citadel excellence in a civilian environment, serves about 1,100 residents of South Carolina’s Lowcountry.

i s T h e C i t a d e l

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 or 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.

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. The quality of the education at The Citadel combined with the availability of financial aid, the credentials of the faculty and the graduation rate earned the institution the citation of Best College Value in the South in 2007. With more than 80 percent of its students returning each year, The Citadel enjoys one of the best retention records in the country. The Citadel’s 14 academic departments offer five bachelor’s degrees in 17 areas, six master’s degrees in 17 areas and specialist degrees in two areas.

Corps of Cadets ... All undergraduate students at The Citadel are members of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets, which numbers approximately 1,900 and represent nearly every state, as well as more than 20 countries. 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. 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, self-discipline 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.
