Dual Matches Dual matches are played during the spring season when two teams compete against each other. Six singles positions and three doubles positions make up the dual match lineup. A team can earn up to seven total points in a dual match. One point is earned for the winner of each singles match and one point is awarded to the winning team of two of the three doubles matches. Beginning in 1993, doubles matches are played first, followed by singles. Pro set matches are played in doubles competition, where a team must win eight games by at least a two-game margin. In singles matches, players adhere to regular set rules, first player to win six games by at least two games. The winner must win two out of three sets.

The ITA The Intercollegiate Tennis Association serves as the governing body of collegiate tennis. It was originated to give coaches an avenue to express their views and recommendations to the NCAA. The organization now sponsors a number of tournaments and events, as well as the All-American team and collegiate rankings. College teams are divided into eight regions by geographic area. Clemson is in the Southeast Region where it competes against other schools from Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

ITA Rankings The ITA Collegiate Tennis Rankings are the official national and regional rankings for men’s and women’s intercollegiate tennis. The rankings are released once in the fall, preseason in early January and then on a weekly basis for the spring season. All rankings include team positions. However, individual rankings are not released every week. The ITA ranks the top 75 teams, top 100 singles players and top 50 doubles teams using a computerized system based on the ITA’s average points-per-match formula. A player’s overall win/loss record with extra points for wins over ranked players and bonus points for participation in certain tournaments, like Grand Slam events, are calculated in the formula.

2010 Outlook

CLEMSON WOMEN’S TENNIS

The Tigers return three All-Americans from the 2009 NCAA Championships. Clemson women’s tennis has established itself among the best women’s ten- Bek earned honors after advancing to the Final 16 in singles and quarterfinals in nis programs in the nation, routinely finishing among the top teams with some of doubles. She and Ina Hadziselimovic are coming off of a solid fall in doubles, and the NCAAs top players. The 2010 season looks to be no different, as Nancy Harris’ enter the spring season ranked fourth nationally. Additionally, Keri Wong earned Allsquad is locked and loaded to compete for a conference title, a major accomplishAmerica status as she teamed with Mijacika in doubles to form one of the nation’s ment in the mighty ACC, and to continue a streak of three consecutive Sweet Sixtop duos in 2009. teen appearances in the NCAA Tournament. The Tigers appear primed to make a deep run in the tournament again with The 2009 NCAA Champions hailed from the Atlantic Coast, and eight ACC the mix of youth, skill, and experience up and down the lineup. teams are listed in the preseason rankings. The Tigers, who are ranked #14 in the first team poll, have earned bids in five of the past six Sweet Sixteens in the NCAA Tournament, have advanced to the Final Four twice in that period, and have “The great thing is that the returners will be very strong,” explains Harris. “I’m advanced in the NCAA Tournament in each of the past eight seasons, a first for any looking for Keri, Ina, Laurianne, and Estefania to be very strong, solid players. I Clemson women’s sport. Clemson is one of only ten teams nationally to advance to look for them to be anywhere in the middle and top of the lineup given their experithe Final Four more than once since 1988. ence.” In 2008-09, Ani Mijacika was ranked #1 nationally for much of the season, Bek enters the 2010 season as the #9 ranked player in the nation, and the while teammate Josipa Bek entered the top top-ranked player in the Carolina Region. She ten in singles as a freshman, giving the Tigers will likely hold down the top flight after posting “You will see talent that you wouldn’t be able to two players among the nation’s elite.

Mix that intensity with her work Nancy Harris. “The energy she brings will be very important to our success.” ethic and mental toughness, and opponents will struggle to take the flight-one singles point in any dual match. “Josipa refuses to be beaten,” says Harris. “She runs down every ball, whether on her court, or two courts down. She brings such a great energy, and when the team gets tired, she is always there to pick them up, and bring a good energy. “ Freshman Nelly Ciolkowski had an exceptional fall, compiling a 7-1 record, winning her flight at the Furman Fall Classic, and advancing to the semifinals of the Carolina Region singles championship. Her only loss came to Bek in that semifinal match, and she posted wins over three ranked opponents. Her efforts in the fall earned her a #61 rank by the ITA to start the 2010 season, making her the secondhighest ranked player on the roster. As the Tigers navigate the 2010 schedule, Ciolkowski will have ample opportunity to prove herself as one of the conference’s best players. Ina Hadziselimovic enters the 2010 season ranked #113 in the ITA. A season ago, Hadziselimovic moved around the lineup, playing as high as flight two and as low as sixth. She gives the Tigers a strong, versatile option in several spots throughout the lineup. She also gives Clemson a measure of experience, as she is one of two seniors on the squad, having played in three NCAA Sweet Sixteens and Clemson’s 2008 ACC Championship run. “Ina is very quiet, but there is a sense of trust that the girls have in her. If she talks, everyone listens. She always has something to add and contribute. “ Sophomore Keri Wong quietly had an exceptional freshman campaign, earning All-America honors in doubles, and posting a stout, 26-9 singles record in primarily the 4th and 5th spots in the lineup. She enters the season ranked #16 in the region, and can give Clemson a dangerous option anywhere from two to five in the lineup. The Jackson, Miss. native has all of the tools to win a championship and pick up her point against any opponent. “Keri is very calm in competition, and her teammates know they can count on her for her point and they believe in her,” Harris adds. “She brings the sense of security and helps to set team standards.” Senior Estefania Balda fought off a shoulder injury last season. She was tough as a doubles partner, posting a 20-7 mark, and in singles, will be used throughout the lineup. She is a veteran of 90 singles matches in her career and was ranked for much of the season in 2009, reaching as high as 76th and finishing the season ranked #115. She has consistently seen the top 100 in each

of her three seasons, and has had many winning experiences with the team and as an individual. Laurianne Henry is a former five-star blue chip recruit from Anderson, S.C. The junior has put together a solid career so far, earning a national ranking late last season, and taking care of business by winning in the ACC tournament and the NCAAs, scoring the clinching point against Winthrop. Henry won 72.0% of her matches as a freshman, and has an 8-2 record in ACC dual matches in her career. She ascended as high as 92nd in the rankings as a sophomore, when her play was limited due to injury. “Laurianne is hitting the ball terrific coming off of injury, as Josipa Bek - Singles and Doubles, 2009 is Estefania Balda, both Ina Hadziselimovic - Doubles, 2009 of whom we missed at the end of last season Keri Wong - Doubles, 2009 due to injury,” said Harris. “They are both back to where they were health-wise, and we will have the opportunity to see them compete at their peak levels.” Caroline Magnusson is another freshman who saw some action in the fall. She will be limited in the spring, but will be able to help depth-wise down the ACC stretch. The Bjarred, Sweden native is primed for difficult competition and will be able to contribute as a tough matchup for many opponents.

2010 outlook

Clemson has hosted an NCAA Regional in each of the past six seasons

Returning All-Americans:

The Doubles Lineup The Tigers will try and build off of a stellar 2009 season in which Clemson recorded the ever-important doubles point in 21 of 27 matches. This year, Ina Hadziselimovic and Josipa Bek highlight the lineup, earning the #4 national ranking by the ITA. They advanced to the Final Eight a season ago, mowing through several top opponents on their way to All-America honors. Hadziselimovic set a junior class record with 30 doubles victories for the season, against only 11 losses in 2009. She has a career doubles record of 80-43, and has won at least 25 matches in each of the past two seasons. She and Bek reached as high as 24th before the Tournament, finishing the season ranked 11th after their Elite Eight run. In the fall, the duo teamed up to go 10-5 and reached the finals of the Carolina Regional. They were ranked 14th for the fall period, but dispatched several ranked opponents on their way to the elite top-five ranking. It gives the Tigers a topfive ranking in doubles for each of the past four seasons. Keri Wong and Nelly Ciolkowski will likely team up at the #2 slot for the dualmatch season. Wong had incredible freshman campaign, earning All-America status as she teamed with Ani Mijacika to form a top-ten ranked doubles group. Wong was 27-8 (.771) overall and gives the Tigers a high-level option to work with. Ciolkowski, the nation’s 61st-ranked singles player, could fill the other spot, but there are a host of Tigers who will fight for the slots. Balda has a career 54-27 doubles mark, winning 20 and 21 matches in each of the past two seasons. Henry can also play, having won five of her seven matches last season. Any combination of these players is possible, and each give Clemson a unique chance and strength of winning.

Conclusion Nancy Harris has never shied away from a difficult schedule, and 2009 will be no different. The ACC will again be loaded, and Clemson will play eight preseason top-25 schools, and a total of 16 schools ranked in the top 75. Clemson will also host the ITA Kickoff Weekend as a precursor to the ITA National Team Indoor Championships. Clemson will welcome #21 Mississippi, #33 Illinois, and #37 Texas A&M for that tournament, and will also play dual matches with several tough opponents, including #4 Georgia and #17 South Carolina in the nonconference slate. “The difficult part is that a tough schedule is rigorous on your athletes. My first goal was to make us a perennial top ten program, and we’ve knocked on the door. My goal is to move firmly into that part an eventually become a perennial top five. We are capable in terms of our facilities, our weather, in recruiting, and in terms of having the strength and depth to be with the nation’s top teams. You have to have a minimum of six healthy players to reach that championship. The season is a gauntlet, and that comes back to the support system.”

Tiger fans will be treated to another of Harris’ elite group of women’s tennis players. Clemson women’s tennis has established itself among the top teams in one of the top conferences nationally, and will again push for national accolades. Josipa Bek gives the Tigers a great chance every match at the top, and can help take the program to the NCAA Tournament and beyond. “You will see talent that you wouldn’t be able to see but in a few places in the US. If you come out and sit and pick an individual and follow that match for one set, I think that you will come away with the idea and enthusiasm for tennis. We have an excellent turnout on the courts from students. Because we are in the shadows of the major sports, people don’t always realize that the level of tennis here is the level of play that you see at the US Open three years later.” The 2010 edition has excellent talent in and every class will be represented in the lineup, giving Harris a variety of options competitively and strategically to help build winning experiences in all aspects of the game.

HEAD COACH NANCYCLEMSON HARRIS

NANCY

HARRIS

WOMEN’S TENNIS

HEAD COACH 13TH SEASON

A reputation second to none... 10 NCAA Tournaments • 5 Sweet sixteens • 2 Final Fours Nancy Harris

Under 13th-year head coach , the Clemson women’s program has taken its place on the national stage and become a perennial power in the sport. In the past seven years, Harris has guided the Tigers to back-to-back NCAA Final Fours, a pair of ACC Championships and a top-20 finish each season. Her players annually compete for tournament titles and consistently earn regional and national accolades. Harris has now led Clemson to 10 NCAA Team Tournament appearances in her 12 years with the program. She has coached the Tigers to 193 wins against 112 losses and boasts a 75-35 record in regular season ACC matches. She has coached eight singles players to 16 appearances at the NCAA Singles Championships and has led a Tiger doubles team to the national doubles tournament in each of the past seven seasons. Twelve of Harris’ student-athletes have been named to the All-ACC team 20 times and seven Tiger singles players and five doubles teams have claimed conference flight championships during her tenure. Four players from the 2009 squad were named All-America giving Harris and Clemson the most of any nationally. The four honorees were also a program high and quite an accomplishment for a team with just eight members. In singles, the Tigers were the only team in the country to boast two players ranked in the top 15 during the regular season as Ani Mijacika remained a constant at the top of the polls and a stellar fall season quickly propelled Josipa Bek into the top 10. Both received bids to the NCAA Singles Championships and won their first-round matches. Bek reached the round of 16 in singles and advanced to the quarterfinals in the national doubles tournament with Ina Hadziselimovic to earn All-America status. Under Harris’ guidance, Bek became the first freshman in school history to be named an All-American in singles and doubles. Harris led Clemson to a third straight Sweet 16 appearance and the program’s eighth consecutive NCAA tournament in 2009. The Tigers posted a 19-8 overall record and finished third in the ACC with a 9-2 record. They spent every week ranked in the top 15 and were ranked 11th in the final poll. Harris coached Mijacika back into the number-one spot in the singles poll and she remained atop the rankings for six straight weeks. With Mijacika headlining the group at #4, four players were ranked in the final ITA singles rankings for the second straight season and just the third time in school history. Bek finished the year at #13 to give Harris and Clemson two players ranked in the top 15 for the first time ever. A pair of doubles teams also were also listed in the final rankings. In 2008, the Tigers, seeded fourth, won their second conference title under Harris, knocking off the top two seeds in the tournament en route to the crown. Clemson’s win over number-one seed and second-ranked Georgia Tech in the semifinals was the program’s great upset in history. Harris helped then-sophomore Ani Mijacika make individual history in 2008 as well. On Feb. 20, Mijacika became the first Clemson tennis player, man or woman, to rise to the #1 national ranking. She spent every week of the spring in the poll’s top five and finished the season at #2. The 2008 Clemson team completed one of the greatest turn-arounds in program history, rallying from a 5-9 record on Mar. 22 to win the final seven matches of the regular season and the ACC Championship. The Tigers earned a bid to the NCAA Tournament for the eighth consecutive season and played host to their fifth straight regional, advancing to the NCAA round of 16 for the fourth time in the last five years. Clemson was then ranked 13th in the final ITA Tennis poll. Harris coached Mijacika and Carol Salge to All-America honors in doubles after the duo earned the fourth seed in the NCAA Doubles Championship and ranked fourth in the final poll. Both also received bids to the singles tournament and were two of four Tigers listed in the final singles rankings of 2008. Estefania Balda and Laurianne Henry helped the 2008 team become just the second in Clemson history to have more than three players ranked at the end of the year. In 2007, Harris led Mijacika and Federica Van Adrichem to the semifinals of the NCAA Doubles Championships and a #4 final ranking. The duo’s run in the national tournament was the best in program history; while the ranking was the highest a Clemson team had ever finished. Harris coached Mijacika to one of the most successful rookie campaigns all-time in 2006-07. Mijacika became the first Tiger to be named the ACC Freshman-of-the-Year and was also the first to be chosen as the ITA Southeast Region Rookie Player-of-the-Year. The 2007 squad went 10-1 in the ACC regular season to claim a share of the conference regular season championship and played host to their fourth consecutive NCAA regional. Harris led Clemson to a 22-5 overall record and the #11 final ranking. The team advanced to the NCAA Round of 16 for the third time in the last four years and made its mark on the school record books. The Tigers defeated seven teams ranked in the top-25 in 2007, second most in program history. The team spent nine straight polls listed in the top 10 in 2007 to set a program record for consecutive polls ranked among the top 10 in a single season and have been ranked in the top 25 in the last 23 polls. Harris led Clemson to back-to-back NCAA Final Four appearances in 2004 and 2005, becoming the only Clemson women’s sports coach to reach consecutive Final Fours, and guided a 2006 Tiger team with just two upperclassmen to a 17-8 overall record and a #18 final ranking. Clemson played host to an NCAA regional for the third straight year in 2006, winning its opening round match before falling in the regional final. Harris coached Carol Salge and Van Adrichem to appearances at the NCAA singles tournament, while Van Adrichem claimed the Southeast Regional Championship title during the fall season. In 2006 ACC action, Clemson recorded an 8-3 ledger to finish fourth in the regular season and reached the semifinals of the conference tournament for the third straight year. The 2005 team finished the year with a 22-9 overall record and earned the #3 ITA ranking during the season, which marked the highest a Clemson team has been ranked nationally under Harris and in

program history. Harris notched her 100th victory as head coach of the Tigers in 2005 and coached two players to All-America honors, the third national award winners in Harris’ tenure. Julie Coin received her second All-America recognition in singles after advancing to the final eight of the NCAA Singles Tournament. She also finished the year ranked #2 in the country, the highest final singles ranking ever for a Clemson player. Harris also coached Coin and Alix Lacelarie to a #10 ranking in the final ITA doubles poll, which earned the Tiger duo All-American honors in doubles. Harris’ 2004 team is arguably the most successful in program history. She led the Tigers to the NCAA Final Four in 2004, which was the first time in Clemson athletics history that any women’s team has reached an NCAA Final Four event. Clemson finished the 2004 season ranked fifth in the final Intercollegiate Tennis Association poll, which is the highest final national ranking both under Harris and in program history. Harris reached several other milestones during the 2004 season, including leading the team to her first ACC Regular Season title and her first ACC Tournament Championship. The 2004 team’s 26 wins are the most for the Tigers under Harris and tie for the third-best win total in program history. Harris coached her first All-American, Julie Coin, to a Final Four appearance at the NCAA Singles Tournament and also coached her first ACC Player of the Year (Coin) and ACC Tournament Most Valuable Performer (Alix Lacelarie) in 2004. Harris was named the ITA Southeast Region Coach of the Year for the 2003-04 season. The USTA of South Carolina also selected her as the 2004 Coach of the Year. Harris coached Julie Coin, who shocked the tennis world with her upset of #1-ranked Ana Ivanovic at the 2008 US Open, to the ITA Southeast Region Singles Championship in 2002, while Coin and Maria Brito won the Southeast Region Doubles crown in 2003, becoming the first doubles team in Clemson history to claim that title. In 1998, her first season at the helm of the program, Harris led the team to an appearance in the NCAA Tournament. In 1999, she guided then-freshman Carmina Giraldo to a 54th-place national ranking and an appearance in the NCAA Individual Singles Tournament. In 2000, the Tigers made their ninth appearance in the NCAA Tournament after finishing third in the ACC. Clemson transposed its win-loss record from the 1998 season and finished the season ranked 28th with a 15-7 mark overall. In 2000, Giraldo earned a second berth in the NCAA Singles Tournament and a #28 final national ranking in singles. In 2002, Clemson reached the second round of the NCAA Championship, upsetting 16th-ranked William & Mary in the first round. Harris led the 2002 Tigers to a 14-11 overall record and a final national ranking of 34th. Alix Lacelarie advanced to the second round of the NCAA Singles Championship and Milena Stanoycheva won the ACC Flight Championship at number six singles. During the 2003 season, Harris led the Tigers to a 19-6 record, a final ITA ranking of 19th, a second-place ACC regular season finish and the team’s second consecutive trip to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Academics have always been a priority for Harris, as evidenced by the success that her teams have enjoyed in the classroom in recent years. She has coached 11 ITA Scholar Athletes during her tenure at Clemson and the Tigers were named an ITA All-Academic Team in 2002 and 2003. Harris has also

COACH NANCY HARRIS CLEMSON WOMEN’S HEAD TENNIS

coached 27 athletes who have been named to the ACC Honor Roll, and current junior Federica Van Adrichem was named to the inaugural ACC All-Academic team in 2006. Van Adrichem earned her second honor in 2007, while then-freshmen Estefania Balda and Ina Hadziselimovic were also selected to the 2007 ACC AllAcademic Team. Balda was then a repeat honoree in 2008. The Tigers have consistently recorded a cumulative team GPA of 3.0 or better in Harris’ years with the program. Harris, who speaks Spanish fluently, has a long and impressive resume. She has participated in three Grand Slam events, including Wimbledon, the U.S. Open and the Australian Open. Prior to her time at Clemson, she was a head coach at Auburn University in Montgomery, AL for nine seasons, during which time she coached both the men’s and women’s teams for five years. She led the women’s team to the national championship once and the men’s team to the same honor twice. Harris is a five-time National Coach-of-the-Year Award recipient, having won the award in 1992, 1993, 1995, 1996 and 1997. In her nine years as the head women’s coach at Auburn-Montgomery, Harris coached 36 All-Americans and four Academic All-Americans. Harris competed professionally under the guidance of tennis great Pancho Segura from 1978 to 1982. She achieved a WTA world ranking of 226 before falling to injury. After leaving the tour, Harris returned to school to complete her degree and in 1984 she graduated cum laude with a degree in biology from Alabama. From 1983-89 Harris served two local tennis clubs in Montgomery, Alabama, as Tennis Director and Head USPTA teaching professional. The next challenge Harris chose to undertake was coaching at the collegiate level. Her first job was at Auburn University at Montgomery, where she served as the women’s coach for nine seasons and the men’s coach for five years. ’“It was a lot of fun, but at the same time it was very challenging.” Harris took the challenge head on and had great success, leading both teams to national championships. The AuburnMontgomery women’s NAIA National Championship title in 1992 marked the first time a women’s tennis team from the state of Alabama won a national championship. She also led the women’s team to four national runner-up finishes (1991, 1993, 1994 and 1997). Harris led the AUM men’s tennis team to two NAIA National Championships (1995 and 1996), becoming the first female to coach a men’s team to a national championship. She is currently the only female coach in the country who has led both a men’s and women’s team to a national championship. Harris was attracted to Clemson for many reasons. She was especially impressed with the level of support Clemson offers the student athletes. Clemson established Vickery Hall in 1991 to assist student athletes academically. Due to their rigorous schedule of traveling and practice, time can be very limited. “There is tremendous support for a student-athlete to have the opportunity to succeed. I really feel the student is well cared for here. A great example is Vickery Hall. I have never seen anything like it; it is truly unique. It offers our players every opportunity to move forward academically while maintaining a busy schedule. We are very fortunate to have this support for our student-athletes.” Harris is a coach who gives of her time freely and is completely devoted to her athletes. This is another reason she was drawn to Clemson. At Auburn University Montgomery, she was responsible for the coaching, academic counseling and administrative aspects of both tennis teams. “I wanted to offer my players more,” says Harris, “This includes more of my time on the tennis court and more time devoted to the student-athletes. They can play at a higher level if they are given more personal attention. Since I have been at Clemson, I have had more time to be on the court coaching the athletes and I enjoy that so much.” Harris has had a life filled with activity and success. “I feel whatever road you take in life, it is most important to give your best effort and to perform as well as you can. By giving your best you know exactly where you stand and can make good decisions about your future. That is what I always tried to do, whether as a student or as an athlete.” To say the least, she has succeeded. Harris is married to Jose Caban. Caban is the Chair of Clemson’s School of Architecture.

ASSISTANTTENNIS COACH DARRELL JERNIGAN CLEMSON WOMEN’S

ASSISTANT COACH FIFTH SEASON

Darrell Jernigan

, now in his fifth year as an assistant women’s tennis coach at Clemson, has helped the Tigers to achieve a presence on the national tennis stage and recruit high-profile talent. Clemson has been ranked in the top 20 in each of his four seasons, and the Tigers have brought in solid recruiting classes since his arrival. “With Coach Jernigan at my side, day in and day out, our program has a tremendous solid base,” said Harris. “From recruiting, to practice, to the court in competition I have such a fine person that I can count on to support our student-athletes and myself.” “He has a great worth ethic and comes to work with a smile everyday. “ Jernigan was instrumental in the signing of the 17th-rated class nationally in 2008, and has helped attract a pair of Blue Chip recruits from the Southeast in the past three years. The 2009 class was comprised of Keri Wong and Josipa Bek, both of whom went on to earn All-America status as rookies. Clemson’s lone signee for the 2008 season was local talent Laurianne Henry, but even with just one player, the class ranked in the top 25. Henry was a Blue Chip recruit who was ranked as high as #3 in the Tennis RPI and 11th in the United States. Jernigan helped Clemson bring in a five-member class for the 2007 season. Ani Mijacika and Ina Hadziselimovic have been recognized as two of the top junior players in the world, while Estefania Balda ranked #1 in South America. He helped coach four players from the 2009 squad to All-America status, which was the most of any school nationally. The four honorees were also a program high and quite an accomplishment for a team with just eight members. In singles, the Tigers were the only team in the country to boast two players ranked in the top 15 during the regular season as Ani Mijacika remained a constant at the top of the polls and a stellar fall season quickly propelled Josipa Bek into the top 10. Both received bids to the NCAA Singles Championships and won their first-round matches. Bek reached the round of 16 in singles and advanced to the quarterfinals in the national doubles tournament with Ina Hadziselimovic to earn AllAmerica status. Bek became the first freshman in school history to be named an All-American in singles and doubles. In 2009, Jernigan was an active part of Clemson’s third straight Sweet 16 appearance and the program’s eighth consecutive NCAA tournament. The Tigers posted a 19-8 overall record and finished third in the ACC with a 9-2 record. They spent every week ranked in the top 15 and were ranked 11th in the final poll. Jernigan helped the 2008 Tiger squad complete one of the greatest turn-arounds in program history, rallying from a 5-9 record on Mar. 22 to win the final seven matches of the regular season and the ACC Championship. The Tigers earned a bid to the NCAA Tournament for the eighth consecutive season and played host to their fifth straight regional, advancing to the NCAA round of 16 for the fourth time in the last five years.

JERNIGAN

As the fourth seed, Clemson won the 2008 ACC title, knocking off the top two seeds in the tournament en route to the crown. The Tigers’ win over number-one seed and second-ranked Georgia Tech in the semifinals was the program’s great upset in history. Clemson was then ranked 13th in the final Fila/ ITA Tennis poll. Individually, Ani Mijacika made school history when she became the first Clemson tennis player, man or woman, to rise to the #1 national ranking. She spent every week of the spring in the poll’s top five and finished the season at #2. Mijacika wasn’t the only member of the team to earn accolades as Jernigan was named the ITA Southeast Region Assistant Coach-of-the-Year. During 2007, Jernigan’s second season, the Tigers claimed the ACC regular season co-championship and returned to the NCAA Round of 16. Clemson players Mijacika and Federica Van Adrichem earned doubles All-America honors, while the accolade was just one on a lengthy list for Mijacika. She was also named the ACC Freshman-of-the-Year and the ITA Southeast Region Rookie Player-of-theYear, both were firsts for the Tiger program. The 2007 squad set a record for consecutive weeks ranked in the top 10 in a single season with nine and posted seven wins over top 25 teams, second-most in school history. Clemson finished the season at #11 with a 22-5 overall record. In his first season as a full-time coach at Clemson, Jernigan helped the Tigers reach their fifth straight NCAA Team Tournament appearance and earn the #18 final national ranking. An experienced educator, he helped lead a young 2006 team, which featured three freshmen and two sophomores, to a 17-8 overall record and a fourth-place finish in the ACC with an 8-3 conference ledger. No stranger to Clemson, Jernigan has been active with the Tiger program for two decades, serving as an instructor at the Clemson Tiger Tennis Camps since 1988. In the summer of 2000, he became the director of the camp under current head coach Nancy Harris and remained in that position for five years. Jernigan is from nearby Seneca, SC, where he was a member of the Seneca High School varsity tennis team. He continued his tennis career as a scholarship player at North Greenville College from 1991-1993, receiving an associate degree in biology. From there, Jernigan attended Winthrop University and walked onto the Eagles’ tennis team, playing until 1994. He earned his a Bachelor of Science degree in Science Teaching-Biological Sciences from Clemson University in 2000. Jernigan and his wife Frances have two children, Alexis (12) and Riley (8).

In addition to being named the 2008 ITA Southeast Region Assistant Coach-of-the-Year, Jernigan is an avid (and, as you can see, skilled) fisherman.

19-8 Final Record (9-2 ACC) NCAA Sweet Sixteen #11 Final ITA Ranking Four All-Americans ACC Player-of-the Year Five Ranked in Final Individual Poll

Season REcap:

The Clemson women’s tennis team continued its trend of success during the 2009 season with a 19-8 overall record, a #11 final ranking, its eighth consecutive bid to the NCAA Tournament and its third straight trip to the round of 16. Individually, junior Ani Mijacika spent six weeks as the nation’s top player; Josipa Bek quickly broke into the national collegiate scene; and a school-record four players earned All-American honors. Mijacika was named the 2009 ACC Player-of-the-Year and spent six weeks as the nation’s top player according to the Campbell/ITA Tennis singles poll. She finished the year with the #4 ranking after spending every poll among the top five. Mijacika collected her fourth and fifth All-America awards in 2009 and is now the most decorated player in those terms in program history. She is the first Clemson player with All-America accolades in both singles and doubles in multiple seasons. Bek became the first freshman in history to earn All-America status in both singles and doubles following a fall season in which she captured the Wilson/ITA Southeast Regional Championship. She was the third player to win the crown during Head Coach Nancy Harris’ tenure. In the spring, the native of Osijek, Croatia reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Doubles Championships with partner Ina Hadziselimovic and advanced to the round of 16 during the singles tournament. She was selected to the all-conference team and was named the 2009 ITA Southeast Region Player-to-Watch. Five players were listed in the final ITA Tennis individual polls with Mijacika headlining the group at #4. Bek was then ranked 13th while Keri Wong (#112) and Estefania Balda (#115) were also listed in the singles poll. Mijacika and Wong teamed for the #11 ranking in the doubles poll while Bek and Ina Hadziselimovic rode their NCAA quarterfinals run to 24th in the final rankings.

School Record Four Players Named All-America

A school-record four Clemson women’s tennis players were named All-Americans as announced by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association. The honors mark several program firsts for Head Coach Nancy Harris’ squad, including the first time in history that two student-athletes earned All-America status in both singles and doubles in the same season, while Clemson placed more representatives on the All-America team than any other school. Ani Mijacika and Josipa Bek concluded successful seasons with the prestigious honor and rankings in both the singles and doubles polls. Mijacika was also named an All-American in singles and doubles in 2008 and is now a program-best five-time honoree. Mijacika teamed with Keri Wong to earn a national seed at the 2009 NCAA Doubles Championships and qualify for All-America status, while Bek and partner Ina Hadziselimovic earned the award after reaching the quarterfinals of the national tournament.

Clemson In The NCAA Tournament

The Clemson women’s tennis team advanced to the NCAA round of 16 for the third straight year and the fifth time in the last six seasons with wins over Winthrop and North Carolina in regional play.

WOMEN’S TENNIS Clemsons Croatian Combination

With the addition to the squad of rookie Josipa Bek, Clemson Head Coach Nancy Harris now boasts two players from Croatia. Bek, a native of Osijek, Croatia, joined countrymate Ani Mijacika to give the Tigers a lethal duo at the top of the singles lineup. Bek finished with a 34-10 record and made her rankings debut at #10 in the preseason individual poll on Jan. 6. Mijacika, who hails from Makarska, entered the spring season at #4 in the singles rankings and won eight straight matches to open the spring season. She moved into the #1 ranking on Mar. 3 and boasted a 29-9 ledger for the year.

Tigers At NCAA Individual Championships With four players competing in the 2009 NCAA Individual Championships, the Clemson women’s tennis team achieved several notable feats. The Tigers sent two teams to the NCAA Doubles Championships, which selects 32 teams, for just the second time in history and the first since 1986, while the duo of Josipa Bek and Ina Hadziselimovic became just the fourth team in school history to reach the quarterfinals of the national tournament. Their run also extended Clemson’s streak of teams in the elite eight of the doubles championship to three straight.

Bek Posts 30th Win

Rookie Josipa Bek became just the fourth different player in the last 13 years to win 30 matches in a single year. With a pair of victories over the Apr. 10-11 weekend, the native of Osijek, Croatia extended her winning streak to 10 straight and improved to 30-7 overall. She finished 34-10 for the year. She joined teammate Ani Mijacika, legend Julie Coin and former Tiger Maria Brito as Clemson’s only 30-match winners since 1996.

Clemson 11th In Final Poll The Clemson women’s tennis team was ranked 11th in the final Campbell/ITA Tennis poll of the 2009 season. The Tigers were ranked among the top 15 in every poll this year and broke into the top 10 for a week in March. Of the Tigers’ eight losses this season, six were suffered against teams that were listed in the top 10 in the final poll, while Clemson boasted six wins over teams ranked in the final top 25. With the #11 listing, the Tigers have been ranked among the top 20 in the final poll in each of the last seven years. All were under current Head Coach Nancy Harris, who now owns a 193-112 record in her 12 years at the helm of the program.

Clemson At The National Indoor

The Tigers went 1-2 at the ITA National Team Indoor Championship over the Feb. 13-15 weekend. Clemson fell in its opening match to #2-ranked Cal, being just edged (4-3) by the Golden Bears. The Tigers rebounded with a 5-2 win over #13 Fresno State in the consolation rounds but fell to ninth-ranked Southern California on the final day of action.

Five Ranked In Final Individual Polls Five Clemson women’s tennis players were ranked in the final Campbell/ITA Tennis individual polls. Ani Mijacika headlined the Clemson group with the #4 final ranking in singles after spending every poll in 2009 among the top five. Bek was ranked 13th in the final poll to give the Tigers two players ranked in the top 15 for the first time in history. Bek and partner Ina Hadziselimovic were ranked 24th in the final doubles poll, jumping 13 spots after their run in the NCAA Doubles Championship. Mijacika teamed with Keri Wong to finish at #11 in the final doubles poll and mark the third consecutive season in which two Clemson doubles teams have been ranked in the final poll. Wong was also listed in the singles rankings at #112. Junior Estefania Balda rounds out the Tigers ranked in the singles poll at #115.

ITA Kick-Off Weekend Recap

The Clemson women’s tennis team earned a berth in the ITA National Team Indoor Championships with a pair of wins over the ITA Kick-off Weekend. The Tigers defeated Boise State, 4-1, in the opening round on Jan. 31 at the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center and then posted a 4-3 win over #26 Auburn to advance to the round of 16.

Bek Wins Southeast Regional

Clemson rookie Josipa Bek captured the tournament title at the Wilson/ITA Southeast Regional Championships. The freshman from Osijek, Croatia won a pair of matches on Monday, Oct. 27 at the University Indoor Tennis Courts on the campus of Wake Forest University for the crown. Bek battled with 37th-ranked Caitlin Whoriskey in the semifinals early in the day, dropping the first set, 7-5. She then edged the Tennessee player by the same margin in the second set and eked out the upset victory in a third-set tie-break, 7-6(2), to advance. Bek then defeated #72 Laura Gioia of Furman in the finals, winning in straight sets (6-2, 7-5). Bek is the third women’s tennis player to win the ITA Southeast Regional Championships under Head Coach Nancy Harris. Current senior Federica van Adrichem won the event in 2005 while former standout Julie Coin captured the title in 2002.

Mijacika Earns Top Conference Honor; Bek Named All-ACC

Clemson’s Ani Mijacika was named the 2009 Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Tennis Player-of-the-Year, as voted on by the league’s 12 head coaches and announced by the conference office on Apr. 15. Bek had an impressive freshman campaign that began with her ITA Southeast Regional Championship title in October and continued throughout the spring season. Bek, who hails from Osijek, Croatia, compiled a 10-1 record against ACC opponents in singles play with an 8-2 doubles record in conference matches.

Former Standout Julie Coin Makes Tennis History

Julie Coin, a standout on the Clemson women’s tennis team from 2003-05, eliminated top-seeded Ana Ivanovic at the 2008 US Open on Thursday afternoon. Coin, ranked #188 and playing in her first career Grand Slam, stunned the tennis world with her secondround upset at Arthur Ashe Stadium, making history in the process. Never before in the Open era that began in 1968 had the No. 1 woman lost this early in the tournament.

Mijacika Tops In The Nation

Junior Ani Mijacika spent six straight weeks as the #1-ranked player in the country. She rose to the top spot in the Mar. 3 poll and remained there in the following two polls. The native of Makarska, Croatia compiled a 16-5 record during the spring season. Mijacika posted 17 wins over ranked opponents and six of her 28 wins came against players who ranked among the top 10. She defeated players ranked second, third, fourth, sixth, seventh and ninth. The native of Makarska, Croatia dropped just 10 sets during the spring season and finished with a 29-9 overall record.

CLEMSON EXPERIENCE

Many have said that experience is the best teacher. Perhaps that’s why students who attend Clemson University not only seek superior academics, they look for broader opportunities-hands-on learning, a stronger sense of family and community, and a powerful connection to the world around them. The best of both worlds, Clemson is redefining the term “top-tier research university” by combining the scientific and technological horsepower of a major research university with the highly engaged academic and social environment of a private, liberal arts college. Described as the perfect blend of geography, camraderie and scholarship, Clemson is more than just a steppingstone to academic excellence. It’s the gateway to the rest of your life. The Clemson Experience is different for every student. There are countless opportunities to participate in decades of tradition, perform community service and pursue challenging learning situations. Clemson is a vibrant, student-centered community that thrives on leadership, collaboration, public service, relevant research and a winning spirit -- in academics, athletics and life. Whatever your interests, Clemson goes beyond textbooks and lectures to provide an environment where you can play, discover, innovate and apply what you’ve learned to leave a lasting impression on the rest of the world.

CLEMSON, SC

  The signs on the side of the highway as you enter Clemson say “Clemson: In Season Every Season.” From the point of view of most Clemson graduates, the seasons this slogan speaks of are football, basketball, baseball, etc. But a drive through town in the middle of spring, when the azaleas and dogwoods are in full bloom, or a walk through campus in October, when the trees are blazing in the brilliant colors of autumn, will leave little doubt that Clemson is indeed in season, every season. Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and caressed by the shores of beautiful Lake Hartwell, Clemson is located in the northwest corner of South Carolina, two hours northeast of Atlanta, GA and two hours southwest of Charlotte, NC. The friendly residents of Clemson and the surrounding towns welcome visitors each year with a true dose of southern hospitality.

With its college-town, lakefront setting against a backdrop of mountains and forests, Clemson is characterized by a strong sense of community, a commitment to service and a love of winning – in academics, in athletics and in life.

The area boasts a great variety of restaurants, ranging from the downtown barbecue and hamburger spots, to the historic Liberty Hall Inn and Calhoun Corners. Any palate or budget can find something to his or her liking, as more than 50 eating establishments are located in the Clemson/Pendleton/ Central area. The area adopts “Clemson Fever,” as Tiger Paws are omnipresent on local billboards and entrances. The mild climate of the foothills lends itself to many outdoor activities throughout the year. Clemson has excellent and ample facilities for tennis, golf, fishing, hiking, white-water rafting and various other pursuits. The campus borders the 900-plus-mile shoreline of Lake Hartwell, where swimming, boating, skiing and sailing are popular pasttimes. When one wants to leave the area, they do not have to go far to find whatever they are looking for. Pro sports are only a couple of hours away in Atlanta and Charlotte. For sun and fun, its an easy interstate drive to the coast of South Carolina, to Hilton Head Island, Myrtle Beach, or even historic Charleston. And for those who enjoy cooler climates, the mountains of North Carolina are only an hour’s drive away.

On football game days, Clemson becomes the fourth largest city in South Carolina, with over 81,000 “citizens” in attendance.

VICKERY HALL Student-Athlete Enrichment

Auditorium

Since its inception in 1991, the Student-Athlete Enrichment Programs have provided student-athletes a continued commitment to excellence. Our approach is to address the total student-athlete, and we are committed to coaching our student-athletes to success in the academic, personal growth, career, and community service arenas. As an original member of the NCAA CHAMPS/Life Skills Program, we provide opportunities and services to address the changing needs and skills of studentathletes during college and after graduation. This program was selected for the Division I-A Athletic Director’s Association “Program of Excellence” Award, a lifetime award recognizing CHAMP/Life Skills excellence. The Student-Athlete Enrichment Programs are housed in Vickery Hall, located in the center of campus. The $3-million structure is as impressive aesthetically as other athletic facilities. It recently underwent $300,000 in renovations to further assist our student-athletes in the classroom. But the importance of Vickery Hall to our student-athletes is not found in the structure itself, but in the many programs that the building houses.

Vickery Hall opened in the fall of 1991 and was the first facility in the country constructed solely to provide academic support to student-athletes. The two-story, 27,000 square-foot building is open all day and into the evening hours to accommodate the student-athletes’ extended schedules. Our programs are dedicated to provide a holistic, educational experience by inspiring an environment of respect, integrity, and excellence. Through these services, Vickery guides and encourages each individual to reach his or her full potential as a student, athlete, and citizen.

CAREER DEVELOPMENT COMMITMENT

The Career Enhancement Program provides

student-athletes an opportunity to develop and meet their career aspirations by participating in various seminars. We coordinate with the academic colleges, the Michelin Center, and through athletic contacts to provide studentathletes with jobsearching skills and strategies, internships, practical experiences, and help in securing summer employment. They are designed to address specific career opportunities and provide related information about the student-athletes for each year. One major aspect of the Career Enhancement Program is to focus on building a resumĂŠ and interviewing techniques. This segment is designed to better prepare our student-athletes for full-time employment. Another aspect utilizes the resources available to the University, Alumni Center, and athletic department. The staff works to establish a network of businesses, companies, and executives who will assist with providing internship and employment opportunities. The Student-Athlete Enrichment Programs have a career counselor on staff, so career advice is readily available in Vickery Hall. Unique to our program, the career counselor is a member of the Michelin Career Center and SAEP staff. This link between athletics and the Michelin Career Center provides student-athletes the most up-to-date information and resources in career development, and preparation for entrance into the job market upon graduation.

PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT COMMITMENT

One of the most important programs in Vickery Hall that helps student-

athletes reach their full potential and engage successfully in their college experience is the Personal Growth & Development program. One key component is a first-semester freshman class designed to assist student-athletes in making a successful transition into the university along with athletic life. All firstsemester freshmen attend a semester-long series of workshops, targeting the transitional issues of time management, organizational strategies, health and wellness issues, athletic performance, diversity issues, career orientation, and service training. Throughout the academic year, all student-athletes are required to attend large-group programs, which focus on pertinent social, health, or athletic issues.

Vickery Hall Values *Education and lifelong learning as the foundation of our program *Integrity and honesty in our dealing with student-athletes, faculty, and staff *Respect and responsibility, both given and inspired *Holistic development of each student athlete *The ethical standards governing Clemson University, the ACC, and the NCAA

HISTORIC RIGGS FIELD

Historic Riggs Field was first used in 1915, and served as home to Clemson’s football, baseball, and track teams. Currently, the 6,500 seat grandstand provides top-notch accomodations for fans and players, and the revitalization of the bermuda grass makes Riggs Field one of the nation’s finest.

HOKE SLOAN TENNIS CENTER

TRADITIONS MILITARY HISTORY

Clemson University has a proud tradition of military excellence. Founded as a military school in 1889, Clemson built its reputation by consistently graduating well-prepared officers. Today, Clemson Army and Air Force ROTC cadets carry on the rich tradition of the historic Corps of Cadets. Clemson's military spirit is commemorated through sites such as the Clemson Military Heritage Plaza, which overlooks Bowman Field and features an array of ribbons and honors, the footprints of brave service men and inscriptions from a variety of alumni classes.

Float Homecoming

HOMECOMING AND TIGERAMA

The excitement, spirit and enthusiasm of Homecoming celebrations have been a Clemson tradition since 1914. During the week preceding the game, student organizations crowd onto Bowman Field to construct Homecoming displays that will be judged on game day. On every Homecoming Friday night since 1957, Tigerama - one of the nation's largest student-run pep rallies - has featured the crowning of Miss Homecoming, skits by student organizations and spectacular fireworks.

ORANGE, PURPLE AND THE TIGER

The first "colors" of Clemson can be seen in an early diploma displayed on campus. But to everyone's surprise, they're red and blue! The orange and purple began when Walter Merritt Riggs formed Clemson's first football team in 1896. Because Riggs had come from Agricultural and Mechanical College of Alabama (later renamed Auburn), he borrowed ideas from their team colors, orange and purple, and their mascot, the Tiger. Although the football team was known as the Tigers and often used "Eat 'Em Up, Tigers" as a slogan, it wasn't until 1954 that a Clemson student donned the mascot suit. In 1993, the Tiger was joined by the Tiger Cub.

FIRST FRIDAY PARADE

Since 1974, the First Friday Parade has been held the Friday afternoon before the first home football game to celebrate the new football season. Student floats move through campus down Highway 93 and end up at the Outdoor Theater for a pep rally.

CLEMSON RING

The first Clemson class rings were issued in 1896. The "C" surrounding a palmetto tree on a black background is one of the most recognizable of all college rings today. Copyrighted so that only Clemson alumni and students with more than 95 hours may have the honor of wearing it, the ring contains art elements representing the University's land-grant and military heritages as well as the motto: "Who shall separate us now?" Seniors may receive their rings from President Jim Barker at a Ring Ceremony sponsored by the Clemson Alumni Association and the Student Alumni Association.

RUNNING DOWN THE HILL

Running down "The Hill" originally started out of practicality. Before the west stands were built, the football team dressed at Fike Field House and ran from there to the gate and down the hill onto the field. Today, it's the sound of "YOUR CLEMSON TIGERS," a cannon fires, the band plays "Tiger Rag," and thousands of orangeclad fans cheer the moment when the Tiger football team runs down the grassy hill and onto the field. This tradition has been dubbed "the most exciting 25 seconds in college football."

WELCOME BACK FESTIVAL

Held the Monday after University housing opens in the fall, this street festival along College Avenue in downtown Clemson gives students a taste of the surrounding restaurants and businesses, which offer food samples, merchandise and prizes.

HOWARD’S ROCK

Howard's Rock, named for legendary Coach Frank Howard, was brought to Clemson from Death Valley, CA by 1919 alumnus S.C. Jones. The rock was first placed on a pedestal at the top of "The Hill" on September 24, 1966. Before a game against Wake Forest on September 23, 1967, Howard told his players that if they would give 110 percent, they could have the privilege of rubbing the rock. The Tigers won that game with a 23-6 victory. The white flint rock still sits at the top of "The Hill," and Tiger football players rub it for good luck before each home game.

TOTAL ATHLETE CARE & PERFORMANCE PROGRAM Clemson offers a unique program designed to support the success of the student athlete at all levels – in the classroom, the playing field and life. This integrated model of student-athlete support - The Total Athlete Care and Performance Program - addresses the student-athlete’s welfare, conduct and performance from a holistic perspective. Student-athletes are supported through relevant and targeted programs, services, resources, conditions and guiding principles. With the focus on the unique needs of each student-athlete, the program integrates all resources into one support system, allowing for efficient communication between various entities and rapid access to assistance relevant to each situation.

Dr. Loreto Jackson, an exercise physiologist and sports nutritionist, manages the student-athlete’s integration of care as the Director of Student-Athlete Performance, and works one-on-one with the student-athlete, coach, or teams as the need arises.

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING

Clemson University has one of the finest weight rooms in the country. In 2004, the weight room was drastically remodeled, receiving a more modern and updated look as well as a more functional layout. Some of the new and updated features of the weight room include a state-of-the-art sound system, eight flat-screen plasma televisions, state-of-the-art ventilation system, new lighting system, 10 new multi-functional Clemson power racks, Mondo rubber flooring throughout entire weight room, new orange upholstery on all equipment, new paint on surrounding walls and columns, carpeting in entrances and offices and a reconstruction of the entryway walls. The nearly 15,000 square foot facility boasts over 12 tons of weight equipment and lines of Nautilus and Hammer Strength machines. The vast amount of equipment allows the weight room to be used by a number of teams simultaneously. The plush atmosphere provides an interesting contrast to the physical exertion that takes place in the facility. The Tiger Strength and Conditioning program is on the cutting edge of athletic sports enhancement. The multiple training methodologies utilized by the Clemson strength staff ensures that each athlete gets the maximum benefit from resistance training, speed development, nutritional consultation, and sports specific conditioning. A staff of 12 trainers designs strength and conditioning programs that are sport specific. A threefold plan is implemented each time a yearly program is set in motion. Each coach will perform a need analysis, program development model and a periodization scheme complete with micro and macro cycles. The Dynamic and Conjugate method of training, which is a highly specialized and demanding form of resistance work, is also utilized for various sports. Once the training programs have been finalized, the strength professional works closely with the head coach during the needs analysis, program development and implementation phases. Constant evaluation is essential to meet the program goals and objectives of the program. Annual sports critiques are performed by the staff to provide a checks and balance for the integrity of the program. The awesome Tiger facility and professional training staff provide the expertise and motivation needed to excel as a student-athlete. As we often say at Clemson, working out is what you do up to 90% ‌..training is the last 10%.

ATHLETIC TRAINING

Clemson student-athletes in all sports now have the luxury of one of the top athletic training facilities in the nation. In the fall of 2000, the facility completed a $750,000 renovation and was renamed the Hoover Training Facility. It is named in honor of Fred Hoover, who served as Clemson’s Head Athletic Trainer for 40 years. He has been inducted into the Clemson Athletic Hall of the Fame and the National Athletic Trainers Hall of Fame. The spacious facility features the latest in athletic training needs. There are offices for the employees and new taping tables, the latest in rehabilitation facilities, including stationary bikes, elliptical machines and an underwater treadmill, and a large hydro-therapy area. The Hoover Athletic Training Facility is stateof-the-art in every aspect. It includes offices for staff and physicians, an orthopedic examination room, a conference room, and library. Best of all, the facility has plenty of space for all athletic training needs. Danny Poole, Director of Sports Medicine at Clemson, was in need of more space before this new athletic training/rehabilitation room was built.  “This facility was in the planning stage for a while as we continued to grow as an athletic department,” Poole said. “We were allowed to design a facility to fit what was best for us.” Because of the facility’s size, Athletic Trainers can now work on more athletes than ever before. The facility handles athletes from 16 of Clemson’s 19 sports. Athletic trainers are present at 7:00 AM and stay until they aren’t needed any longer in the evening.

The athletic training staff includes seven full-timers, 15 students, and 10 graduate assistants that are kept busy year-round. One of its biggest advantages is the number of people who can be treated at the same time. This was enhanced over the past two years, as a total of three full-time assistants, two of whom worked previously as student assistants at Clemson, were added to Poole’s staff. Clemson’s main athletic training facility is located in the downstairs portion of the Jervey Athletic Center, next to the equipment room and beneath the coaching and administrative offices of the Tiger athletic department. Along with the main facility, the sports medicine staff operates three satellite athletic training rooms located in Littlejohn Coliseum, Doug Kingsmore Stadium, and Riggs Field. In addition, a second state-of-theart athletic training facility recently opened in the West End Zone at Memorial Stadium.

COMPLIANCE

This brief NCAA rules education is aimed at outlining basic recruiting rules to help potential Tiger studentsathletes and parents better understand the extensive process. Clemson University is committed to recruiting and conducting our athletic program with the highest level of integrity. If you have questions about NCAA rules, please contact Clemson’s compliance services at (864) 656-1580 or through our website at ClemsonTigers.com and click on compliance.

A prospect should check with his high school guidance office to see if he is taking classes that will meet NCAA eligibility standards. A prospect should do this early - prior to his sophomore year - and keep track of core courses. A prospect will need to take either the ACT or SAT for NCAA certification. - NCAA rules define a contact as a face-toface interaction with a prospect and/or his parents off Clemson’s campus by a coach. During your senior year of high school, NCAA rules allow a coach to make three contacts with you and your parents at any site.

- Courses at a prospect’s high school that are considered college preparatory. The NCAA requires 16 core courses, including four in English, three in math, two in science, one additional from English, math, or science, two social sciences, and four additional courses. A high school prospect’s guidance counselor will have a list of the school’s core courses, or you can visit the NCAA Eligibility Center’s website at NCAAClearinghouse.net for more information.

- During the contact period, a senior prospect may invite college coaches to his home to meet his parents, and to talk in detail about the athletic program and academic offerings at any college the prospect is considering.

- Prior to September 1 of a prospect’s junior year, NCAA rules allow Clemson to mail a questionnaire, NCAA educational information, and a summer-camp brochure to a prospect. After September 1 of the prospect’s junior year, coaches can provide a prospect with the following: personalized letters, media guide and copies of newspaper articles, instant messages and text messages. A prospect can receive a game program when he visits the Clemson campus. - A term used to describe the process of acquainting a prospect with a college and the coaches of that college, who are striving to learn more about a prospect. Only coaches can recruit - no one else is permitted to persuade a prospect to play sports at a particular college. - Any student who has entered the ninth grade. Once a person becomes a prospect, NCAA rules define how college coaches can interact with that prospect.

- Recruiting period when coaches may not have face-to-face contact with prospects on or off campus. Coaches may continue to telephone and write a prospect.

- A prospect must take the SAT or ACT before enrolling in college full-time. A prospect may take the SAT or ACT more than once and use the best subscore from different tests to achieve the highest score. Both Clemson and the NCAA Eligibility Center require scores to be reported directly from the testing agency. When registering for the test, list the Eligibility Center Code (9999) and Clemson (511 (SAT), 3842 (ACT)). Clemson University admissions requires students to present either an SAT or ACT writing score. The writing score will not be used to determine a prospect’s qualifier status.

- In April and May of a prospect’s junior year, coaches will come to a prospect’s high school, and review his athletic and academic credentials with his coach. In the fall, they may watch a prospect compete one time, but they will not have any contact.

- Clemson coaches can call a prospect after July 1 of a prospect’s senior year. A prospect can expect unlimited calls before his official visit and once the prospect has signed a National Letter of Intent.

JAMES F. BARKER

As an architect, James F. Barker is a rarity among major university presidents and he has often wondered why. He believes architecture is the ideal background for the challenges of university leadership, because it strikes the right balance between art and science, the creative, and the practical. “I often tell people I learned everything from plumbing to poetry in architecture school, and I use every bit of that knowledge as president of Clemson University,” Barker said. Add to that his love of sports and his college experience as a varsity athlete on Clemson’s track team, Barker is the total package. A 1970 Clemson graduate, Barker became president in 2000 with a vision and a mandate from the Board of Trustees to lead Clemson into the top ranks of American public universities...an institution that attracts outstanding faculty and students, provides an unmatched educational experience, and helps drive innovation and economic development for the state of South Carolina. During Barker’s presidency, the University has harnessed the competitive, can-do spirit of the Clemson family to help improve the quality of a Clemson education and the value of a Clemson degree. It has climbed from #39 to #22 among public universities in the U.S. News & World Report, which also recognized Clemson in its 2009 guide as an “up and coming” institution. In the last decade, Clemson has also: • been granted a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, America’s oldest and most prestigious undergraduate honor society in the arts and sciences. • been recognized for value and affordability by Kiplinger’s and Smart Money magazine, and twice ranked #1 among the “Best Places to Work in Academia” by The Scientist magazine.

• developed and implemented an academic “Road Map” with eight emphasis areas aligned with South Carolina’s economic needs. • created an Academic Success Center to help undergraduates learn and succeed. Freshmen retention rates have gone up and graduation rates have risen from 71 percent in 2001 to 78 percent in 2008. According to the National Survey of Student Engagement, 91 percent of Clemson seniors would choose Clemson again. • strengthened its cyberinfrastructure and information technology capabilities, and connected to national high-speed research networks. • been ranked as high as #61 on the top-500 list of supercomputing sites. • launched major education and research-based economic initiatives, including the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) in Greenville, the Center for Advanced Materials in Anderson County, and the Clemson University Restoration Institute in North Charleston, all in conjunction with the South Carolina Centers of Economic Excellence program. • developed an innovative undergraduate research program called “Creative Inquiry,” which pairs small teams of students with a senior faculty member on multi-year voyages of discovery. • created the Bridge to Clemson program to help students make the transition from the state’s technical/community colleges to Clemson. • set new records for students applications (at both the undergraduate and graduate levels), private giving, externalresearch support, and study-abroad participation. Working with state leaders and private industry partners, Barker has steered Clemson into a greater economic development role. The first phase of the CU-ICAR campus near I-85 is complete and graduate students in automotive engineering are studying at its Campbell Graduate Engineering Center. Leading the academic and research program are distinguished professors in endowed chairs supported by BMW, Michelin, and Tim-

ken. The R e s t o ra tion Institute is spearheading major research and public education efforts to improve watershed management and restore water quality in South Carolina. Barker is a leading voice in higher education, not only in South Carolina but nationwide. He currently chairs the Division I Committee of the NCAA Board of Directors and delivered a keynote address at a symposium in Washington D.C. on global best practices in science & technology parks. It was sponsored by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences in cooperation with the Association of University Research Parks, as his topic was CUICAR. For his leadership, Barker has received the Order of the Palmetto, South Carolina’s highest civilian honor, and The Cliff’s Business Person-of-theYear Award from Greenville Magazine. He has also received the James T. Rogers Meritorious Service Award from the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools. As Clemson’s president, Barker remains committed to the classroom. Each spring, he is part of a team that teaches an undergraduate course exploring “a sense of place” in architecture, literature, and history. In presenting Barker with the Distinguished Alumnus Award in 2005, Washington University Chancellor Mark Wrighton said, “James F. Barker has taken the architectural skills and knowledge required to design a building and applied them to the future of a university. His architect’s vision, collaborative instincts, and sense of place are rapidly pushing Clemson up through the ranks of the nation’s top public universities. He has become a leader in national academic circles by creating a new model of education, building interdisciplinary partnerships among the professional schools and the basic curriculum by tearing down artificial walls between disciplines.” A native of Kingsport, TN, Barker earned his bachelor of arts degree from Clemson in 1970 and his master of architecture & urban design degree from Washington University in Saint Louis, MO in 1973. He and his wife Marcia have two sons and one grandchild.


TERRY DON PHILLIPS

On June 30, 2009, Clemson’s football staff moved into the West Endzone at Memorial Stadium. It was a day of physical exertion for a lot of coaches, but the Tiger football staff performed the strenuous activity with smiles on their faces because the move meant the completion of Phase II of the West Endzone project, a project that has brought the Clemson football facilities to among the best in the nation. It was also a day that brought a smile to the face of Clemson Athletic Director Terry Don Phillips, who had been working toward that day before he arrived on campus seven years ago. The creation of the West Endzone facility is another in a long line of accomplishments for Phillips throughout his 30-year career in athletic administration. Phillips’ vision for the West Endzone was to create a top-of-the-line facility for the football program, but at the same time have a positive effect on the total sports program. The facility at Memorial Stadium now creates more office space, new locker rooms, and training room and strength training facilities for the Olympic sports programs. There have been many facility and infrastructure enhancements since Phillips came to Clemson and they have led to a quality all-around program. In 2008-09, Clemson played in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, the NCAA Baseball Tournament, and a bowl game, one of just 13 schools nationally to participate in all three. It was also the first time Clemson had done that in 11 years. The men’s basketball program reached the NCAA Tournament for the second straight year and finished in the top 25 of the final AP poll for the second straight year, a first in school history. The rowing program had a remarkable year, winning its first ACC Championship and the Varsity 4+ won the national title. The volleyball team played host to the NCAA Tournament for the second consecutive year and the women’s tennis team finished in the top 20 (#11) for the seventh straight year. The baseball team won an NCAA Regional and had a #14 final ranking, the golf team finished #6 in the final Sagarin ratings, and the indoor track team finished 23rd at the NCAA Championships. Overall, six programs received team bids to NCAA Tournaments.

Athletic Director

Academically, 17 of the 19 programs were above the national average for public institutions in terms of APR scores. In the 2009 spring semester, the 15 programs had a 2.97 combined GPA, the highest on record for any semester and 54 percent of the student-athletes made the Academic Honor Roll. These statistics and accomplishments were contributing factors to Phillips’ selection as one of the top-100 Most Influential Sports Educators in America in 2008, as named by The Institute for International Sport at the University of Rhode Island. The institute’s objective involved a four-year process and resulted in a list that spans scholars, Olympians, coaches, and other industry leaders “who have creatively and effectively used sport in the very best way as a means to educate and shape positive values.” Phillips’ athletic career and academic pursuits epitomize that desire. Perhaps still the only Division I athletic director with both a doctorate and law degree, he uniquely blends the discipline and inspiration created on each side of campus. In his eighth year at Clemson, he has firmly put his imprint on the University and Tiger athletics by creating a balanced, positive environment for success that emphasizes academic integrity, student-athlete welfare, and competing at the highest levels with unequivocal NCAA compliance. Phillips was recognized nationally for his performance at Clemson in June of 2006 when he was honored by NACDA (National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics) as the 2005-06 GeneralSports Turf Systems Athletic Director-ofthe-Year for the Southeast Region of the FBS. He was one of just four FBS athletic directors honored at the annual convention in New Orleans, LA. Excellence in academics has been a constant on his resumé. He has an undergraduate degree from Arkansas (1970), a master’s degree from Virginia Tech (1974), a doctorate degree from Virginia Tech (1978), and a law degree from the University of Arkansas School of Law (1996). He is a member of the Arkansas Bar, American Bar Association, and Sports Lawyers Association. Phillips remains a classroom presence by teaching a sports law section in Clemson’s Accountancy & Legal Studies department. In addition, he is past chair of the NCAA Division I Infractions Appeals Committee. He has written on diverse areas, such as antitrust and the NCAA, student-athlete welfare, alternative dispute resolution, and Title IX. His doctoral dissertation on Title IX involved a historical review of the law and was the first national study of Title IX implications on college athletic programs. This research spawned his intent and desire to study law. Prior to coming to Clemson, Phillips served as athletic director at Oklahoma

State. Football was transformed from a perennial losing status to defeating Oklahoma during five of the eight years he was associated with Oklahoma State (1994-02). For this, he received the National Football Foundation Oklahoma Chapter Outstanding Contribution to Amateur Football Award in 2002. Additionally in 2006, he was named one of the top-25 most influential people in the history of Oklahoma State Athletics by GoPokes Magazine. When it came to success on the field and in the classroom, Oklahoma State’s programs were among the Big 12’s best. The achievements of the program included two national titles in men’s golf, a men’s basketball Final Four appearance, two trips to the College World Series, 13 Big 12 titles, and 11 individual National Champions along with 53 academic All-Americans. Before leading Oklahoma State, Phillips served as senior associate athletic director at Arkansas from 1988-94. He has served as athletic director at Liberty (1980-81) and Louisiana-Lafayette (1983-88). He was an assistant athletic director at Missouri (1981-83) and began his administrative career in 1979 as an assistant athletic director at Florida. Phillips began his career in college athletics coaching football. He started as a graduate assistant at Arkansas in 1970 and 1971. He moved on to Virginia Tech as an assistant coach (1971-78) before joining the ranks of athletic administration. At Virginia Tech, he served on coaching staffs that included future Clemson Head Coaches Charley Pell and Danny Ford. Winning has been on Phillips’ resumé since his playing days at Arkansas. He lettered on three Frank Broyles teams (1966,68,69), where he and his brother Loyd, an Outland Trophy winner, were starting defensive tackles, the first brother combination to start together under Broyles. Arkansas had a 27-5 record in the three years, played in two Sugar Bowl games, and played in the memorable 1969 National Championship game against Texas. Phillips has two children, John Dennis (32) and Sarah-Jane (29), and three stepchildren, Meagan (20), a sophomore at Clemson and proud member of Tiger Band, Marshall (19), and Madison (17). His wife Tricia is a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism and earlier enjoyed a career in athletics and development. She is now active in the Clemson and Seneca communities.

IPTAY

The IPTAY Scholarship Foundation, founded in 1934, was the first scholarship fundraising organization in college athletics. Its roots trace back to October 16, 1931 following a surprising 6-0 football loss to The Citadel. After the game, Captains Frank Jervey, Pete Heffner, Head Coach Jess Neely, and Assistant Coach Joe Davis met in a car outside the stadium in Florence, SC to discuss various ways Clemson could establish its football program to a competitive status.

For more information, call (864) 656-2115 or visit clemsontigers.com

Shortly after the meeting, Dr. Rupert Fike offered his help after corresponding with Jervey. Neely believed he could run a successful football team if he was provided a $10,000-a-year increase in scholarships. Initially, Jervey originally called for members to pay $30 a year, but Fike recommended a smaller dollar amount, which he believed would lead to more members. Fike challenged 1000 people to step forward and pay $10 a year to the organization, which is where the name IPTAY originated from (I Pay Ten A Year). The purpose of IPTAY is “to provide annual financial scholarship support to the athletic department and to assist in every way possible to regain the high athletic prestige which rightfully belongs to Clemson.” The hard work of Fike and his colleagues began to pay off in 1939, as the Tigers went to their first bowl game, the 1940 Cotton Bowl, where they defeated Boston College 6-3 and finished the season in the AP top-25 poll for the first time in school history. Coincidentally, IPTAY reached Neely’s $10,000 goal for the first time in 1939.

IPTAY has been the key in building and maintaining the outstanding facilities essential for Clemson to remain one of the top intercollegiate programs in the country. IPTAY has played a critical role in various construction projects and renovations throughout the athletic department. IPTAY was the first organization in the nation to build and fund an academic support facility built solely for educational support of student-athletes. Vickery Hall opened its doors to Clemson’s student-athletes in 1991 and has established itself as a nationally-recognized program for student-athlete support.

Today, IPTAY has nearly 24,000 donors, which includes almost 16,000 IPTAY members as well as 8,000 members of the Tiger Cub Club and Collegiate Club, who continue Fike’s mission of providing annual scholarships for Clemson’s studentathletes to ensure all 19 varsity sports annually obtain the maximum amount of scholarships offered by the NCAA.

Today, the organization continues its missions as it recently celebrated its 75th year of scholarship support for Clemson student-athletes. Under the department of external affairs, IPTAY will expand its organizational service to move toward a broader scope of full-service. This will include capital gifts, improved marketing plans, estate planning, and increasing our membership through our IPTAY Representative program. For more information on IPTAY or determining other ways to contribute, please call the IPTAY office at (864) 656-2115 or log on to C l e m s o n Ti gers.com.
