2011-12 OUTLOOK

After handing Bethune-Cookman their lone Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference loss last season and then falling to the Wildcats in the MEAC Championship game, it’s safe to say that the Delaware State softball team is hungry for a 2012 title. The 2011 Hornets had one of the best seasons in school history as they were led by head coach Jeff Savage and then-junior Jordan Reid (Accokeek, Md.), the back-to-back MEAC Player of the Year and 2012 MEAC Preseason Player of the Year. DSU finished with an overall record of 32-19 while going 12-6 in MEAC play and clinching the MEAC Northern Division Title. They made their fifth appearance in the MEAC Championship game and third in six years. The 19 losses are the fewest in Savage’s 12-year tenure. Savage, now in his 13th season at the helm of DSU softball, led the Hornets to the 2008 MEAC crown.

For the 2012 campaign, Del State lost just six letterwinners while returning 13 players and adding five newcomers. Amongst the returners are All-MEAC selections Reid, pitcher Ashlyn Campbell (Trabuco Canyon, Calif.), infielder Stephanie Martello (Oxnard, Calif.) and reliever Stephanie Sarris (Rohnert Park, Calif.). Additionally, the Hornets will field seven seniors. “We have a tremendous amount of experience returning to our squad,” commented Savage. “The majority of our players felt what it was like to be so close to a MEAC title and come home empty-handed. Their drive and passion this season will be undeterred.” In addition to fielding an experienced team, Savage will test the Hornets with a difficult non-conference schedule leading into MEAC play.

“Early on will be a challenge because game pressure and game speed cannot be replicated in practice or scrimmages,” Savage stated. “Once we get more game repetition, we will ease into playing our game.” PITCHING STAFF The Hornets boast four experienced pitchers the coming season and will be led by Campbell, a 2011 All-MEAC Second Team honoree and two-time MEAC Pitcher of the Week. As a freshman, Campbell led the team with 106.1 innings pitched (3.54 per game) and a 2.44 ERA, which was good for fourth overall in the MEAC and 144th in the NCAA. The sophomore finished sixth in the MEAC last season with 10 wins. While Campbell is a tremendous starter for Del State, the Hornets also boast the MEAC’s best reliever in Sarris, also a sophomore. Also an All-MEAC Second Team honoree and two-time MEAC Rookie of the Week selection, Sarris broke the school record in saves last season as she tallied four; besting Janice


SOFTBALL Savage’s three in 2005. Her save total led the MEAC and was good for 14th in the nation in 2011. Sarris also rewrote the history books with a 1.72 ERA, good for fourth in school history. The righty also led the conference in eight other statistical categories. Also returning for Delaware State is senior Casey Beighley (Oxnard, Calif.). Beighley, who will also see time in the outfield, is a threat both on the mound and in the batter’s box. She finished the 2011 season tied for fifth all-time in DSU softball history with 16 doubles and averaged 0.33 per game, good for 12th nationally. Beighley earned one

They know how to manage an inning and how the relationship between a catcher and umpire works. They’re veterans that I know I can rely on.” Carroll, a 2012 All-MEAC Preseason selection, will also fill various infield roles for DSU. She finished the 2011 campaign with a .337 batting average with 29 hits.

She also led the team with four complete games and pitched two complete game shutouts back-to-back. The Hornets welcome one newcomer to their pitching squad in sophomore Rachel Meagley (Spokane, Wash.). Despite this being her first season at Delaware State, Meagley spent her freshman season playing softball at Miami-Dade College. In her time at MDC, Meagley helped lead the Sharks to a Florida Junior College Softball State Championship and a berth in the Junior College World Series. “Our pitching staff this season is much deeper than it’s ever been,” remarked Savage. “Each of our pitchers has had at least one season of collegiate softball under their belt and this will be a huge advantage for us. Meagley has the experience on the big stage, playing in the JC World Series, and this will help our staff a lot.”

Boris, one of two juniors on the DSU roster, appeared in 34 games last season, starting 25 as the Hornets catcher. Carroll and Boris will be joined by Beeson, who was a four-sport athlete at Christiana High School (softball, basketball, volleyball, swimming). As a senior, she was named CHS’ Senior Female Student-Athlete of the Year.

“We’re able to be flexible with our lineup day in and day out with this squad,” remarked Savage. “We can move them around to the various positions, depending on where we see fit on any particular day.” Martello, a 2012 All-MEAC Preseason selection, was a 2011 All-MEAC Second Team honoree and won the MEAC Rookie of the Week honor once. She finished the year with a .307 batting average in 49 games played, while starting 42. Martello led the team with 35 RBI and was tied for first with two home runs.

“Martello is a solid player,” Savage said. “She split time at first last season, but her offense will explode this year with her playing full-time.” Joining Martello in the infield are seniors Tawny Reeger (Simi Valley, Calif.)

The outfielders are led by the Reid, a senior touted as one of the best student-athletes in Delaware State University history. Reid, who is the first DSU studentathlete to win consecutive Player of the Year awards, was named to the AllMEAC First Team and Louisville Slugger/ NFCA Division I All-Mid-Atlantic First Team in addition to being named the DSU Female Student-Athlete of the Year and an ECAC Division I All-Star in 2011. While Reid garnered NFCA Second Team honors as a sophomore, she is the first Hornet to ever be named to the First Team. Additionally, she was the lone MEAC player on the First Team list. The senior finished the 2011 season ranked second in the nation with a

.497 batting average, which also led the MEAC by nearly 90 points. She also posted 77 hits on the season, 16 more than second place. Reid finished 12th in the nation with a .551 on-base percentage and 14th with five triples (tied for fifth all-time at DSU). Fellow senior Chelsea Stern (Owings, Md.) is the team’s centerfielder and competed in 46 games for the Hornets in 2011, posting a .230 batting average with 14 hits.

Del State begins the season with 11 days in Florida with two University of North Florida tournaments from March 2-11. In addition to UNF (Atlantic Sun), the Hornets will face Kansas (Big 12), St. Bonaventure (Atlantic 10) and Mount St. Mary’s in the tournaments. Moreover, DSU will take on McNeese State, Bethune-Cookman and Jacksonville during their time in the Sunshine State.

“Starting a week later than normal is a challenge, but spending that many days Also expected to see time in the outfield is in Florida will make up for that fast,” Beighley and fellow senior Breanne Parr commented Savage. “We’ll be playing a (Camarillo, Calif.) in addition to freshmen number of schools from larger conferKelsey Doherty (Harbeson, Del.) and Bria ences and five teams that were ranked Green (Wheatley Heights, N.Y.). highly in the 2011 season to help us prepare for the conference tournament.” OFFENSE The “lumber and lightning” will be The Hornets return from Florida and very beneficial to a Hornet team that is host the A-10’s St. Joseph’s in a St. Pathistorically known for their offense and rick’s Day doubleheader at the Hornets’ this season will be no different.

Listed amongst others, Green and Parr can be game changers with one swing of the bat. The team also has speed on their side, with numerous players who can outrun a ball hit on the ground or a bunt. “With our approach, our kids are an offensively strong suit,” said Savage. “There will be jitters early on, but I know they’ll shake those off fast.” SCHEDULE DSU opens play Friday morning with a contest against McNeese State at 11:30 p.m. before jumping into the UNF Osprey Invitational at 4:15 p.m. against Mount St. Mary’s. The Hornets are slated to face five 2011 Top 75 RPI teams, including teams from seven well-known conferences, for the 2012 slate.

Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play begins on March 31 as the Hornets travel to Hampton for three games and then to Morgan State the next weekend for three games. The Hornets return home to host Coppin State on April 14-15, Towson (nonconference) and Norfolk State on April 21-22 to wrap up their slate of games at the Hornets’ Nest. Del State plays another ACC team in the University of Maryland in a doubleheader in College Park on April 25. “Playing teams from the ACC (Maryland) and the Big 12 (Kansas) is a great opportunity for a smaller school like ours,” Savage stated. “We can definitely compete against these bigger teams and it gives our girls a confidence booster.” The Hornets conclude the regular season and conference play with three games at Howard on April 28-19 and at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore on May 5-6. The MEAC Tournament is slated for May 10-12 in Ormond Beach, Fla.

JEFF SAVAGE

HC

Since his appointment prior to the 2000 season, Jeff Savage has posted an overall record of 339-285, including a 196-79 mark in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference games as head coach for the Hornets. His tenure at DSU is noted by success on the field and in the classroom. Savage led the team to the first MEAC Championship in school history, a feat accomplished in 2008. Additionally, he guided the Hornets to four consecutive MEAC North titles from 2001 to ‘05, and won another in 2011. During the 2008 season, Savage led DSU to a four game sweep to claim the first MEAC Softball title and NCAA Softball appearance. The Hornets were eliminated by The University of Texas, 3-2, in the NCAA Softball Regionals. Most recently, Savage’s 2011 squad recorded the fewest losses since the 1995 season as they went 32-19 overall en route to a MEAC Northern Division title. The Hornets marched to the Championship game of the MEAC Tournament, falling just short by losing to Bethune-Cookman, 5-4, in nine innings. A number of DSU student-athletes garnered awards during the campaign as Jordan Reid was named the MEAC Softball Player of the Year for the second consecutive season and joined Janelle Lukens and Ashley Davis on the All-MEAC First Team. Andrea Waters, Stephanie Sarris and Ashlyn Campbell were named to the All-MEAC Second Team, to mark the most players on a single squad to be named to the MEAC All-Conference teams. Reid finished second in the nation with a .497 batting average and also landed a spot on the NFCA All-Region Team as well as the ECAC Second Team. The Hornets led the MEAC in overall win percentage and team batting average in 2011. The 2011 team also posted the first school victory over an ACC opponent in a 5-3 win over Virginia in Charlottesville. In the classroom, Del State finished 37th overall and was the highest HBCU on the NFCA All-America Scholar Athlete list with nine players selected for the honor. 2010 saw the Hornets post a 28-20 overall record and a 10-5 MEAC regular season record. Jordan Reid was named first team ALL-MEAC, MEAC Player of the Year, as well as NFCA All Region. Additionally, Tawny Reeger and Rachel Carroll were named First Team ALL-MEAC for the Hornets. The 2009 Hornets finished 23-24 overall with an 8-6 MEAC regular season record. Andrea Waters was named first team ALL-MEAC, while Jo Jo Shields and Britney Ruark were named to the second team.

A DSU alum and Hall of Famer, Janice Savage is in her second stint as the assistant softball coach at Delaware State. Savage rejoined the team in October 2010 after serving as the pitching coach at the University of North Florida from 2009-10. Prior to her time at UNF, Savage worked one season at Bowling Green State University, where she served primarily as the pitching coach, but assisted with all aspects of the team. Previously, Savage worked three seasons as an assistant coach for the Hornets, where she coached the pitching staff and hitters along with managing the program’s recruiting, team conditioning, strength training and other daily operations. In 2008, she helped lead the Hornets to the first MEAC Championship title and trip to the NCAA Regionals in school history. Savage and the Hornets nearly picked up the first NCAA Tournament win in school history as they were five outs away from defeating Texas, 2-1, before the Longhorns rallied to score two runs in the sixth inning for the win. The Hornets finished the season ranked in the top 10 in nation in two offensive categories; third in doubles per game (1.94 per game) and sixth in scoring (6.11 runs per game). Before joining the DSU coaching staff, Savage finished the last two seasons of her collegiate career as a Hornet. In her two seasons for Del State, she was a dominant force on the mound ranking in the top 25 of the nation in strikeouts per seven innings (20th in 2004, 8.6 strikeouts per seven innings) and ERA (24th in 2004, 0.98). She still holds the DSU records for strikeouts in a career (323), season (185) and in a single game (17), along with MEAC records. While at Delaware State, Savage was named to the All-MEAC first team, All-ECAC first team, a two-time NFCA Academic All-American and earned the MEAC Commissioner’s academic award twice. Savage also played two seasons at Georgia Southern University where she was named to the All-Southern Conference. The pitcher played one season professionally overseas in 2005 for New Bologna, an upper division team in the Italian Federation League, becoming the first Delaware State female to sign a professional sports contract. Savage was elected to the DSU Athletic Hall of Fame in 2010. She received her bachelor’s degree in Sport Management and a master’s in Sport Administration from Delaware State University. Savage resides in Dover, Del. with her children Jada and Colton.

SOFTBALL

THE MEAC The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) begins its 42nd year of intercollegiate competition heading into the 2011-12 academic school year. Located in Norfolk, Va., the MEAC is made up of 13 outstanding historically black institutions across the Atlantic coastline: Bethune-Cookman University, Coppin State University, Delaware State University, Florida A&M University, Hampton University, Howard University, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Morgan State University, Norfolk State University, North Carolina A&T State University, North Carolina Central University, Savannah State University and South Carolina State University. The MEAC sponsors 15 Division I (FCS) sports with automatic qualifying bids for NCAA postseason competition in baseball, bowling, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s track and field, softball, and volleyball. MEAC student-athletes excel on and off the field and several have been recognized on ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-America and All-District teams. The MEAC awards two post-graduate scholarships of $5,000 each annually to one male and one female student-athlete who have excelled academically and athletically and are in their final season of intercollegiate athletics eligibility and competition under MEAC and NCAA regulations. HISTORY In 1969, a bold ad hoc group of innovators long associated with intercollegiate athletics met in Durham, N.C., to discuss the feasibility of organizing a new conference. From these discussions, they formed a steering and planning committee to fully investigate the idea, present a detailed report with recommendations to interested collegiate institutions and construct a workshop to outline proposals. After selecting a proposal and adopting a program, seven institutions (Delaware State College, Howard University, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Morgan State University, North Carolina A&T State University, North Carolina Central University and South Carolina State College) agreed to become the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. Their major objective was to establish, organize and supervise an intercollegiate athletic program among a compact group of educational institutions of high academic standards with a sound philosophy of co-curricular activities. The conference agreed to seek Division I status for its sports. The conference was confirmed in 1970, kicking off its first season of competition in football in 1971. In 1978, the MEAC reached a milestone when it selected Kenneth A. Free to be its first full-time commissioner. Free served the conference for 18 years before stepping down in May of 1996. In July 1996, Charles S. Harris was named commissioner and served in the capacity until April 2002. On September 1, 2002, Dr. Dennis E. Thomas was named commissioner and has served in the position for nine years. The conference’s first expansion occurred in October 1979 when BethuneCookman College and Florida A&M University were voted into the MEAC as new

members. Original members Morgan State, North Carolina Central and Maryland Eastern Shore withdrew from the conference at the end of the 1979-80 fiscal year. Maryland Eastern Shore was readmitted in 1981 and Morgan State returned in 1984. Florida A&M opted to resign in 1984 but rejoined the conference in 1986. Coppin State College was granted admittance in 1985, becoming the ninth member institution. The MEAC expanded again in the 1990s with the inclusion of Hampton University (1995) and Norfolk State University (1997). The conference expanded once again in 2007, adding Winston-Salem State University. Following the 2009-10 academic/athletic season, however, Winston-Salem State withdrew from the conference and returned to Division II. On July 1, 2010, the MEAC made its most recent expansion with the admittance of North Carolina Central and Savannah State University. On June 8, 1980, the MEAC was classified as a Division I conference by the NCAA. Prior to that year, the conference operated as a Division II conference. The month after it achieved Division I status, the MEAC received an automatic qualification to the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship. Currently, the conference has automatic qualifying bids for NCAA postseason play in baseball (since 1994), men’s basketball (since 1981), women’s basketball (since 1982), football (since 1996), softball (since 1995), men’s and women’s tennis (since 1998), and volleyball (since 1994). The MEAC initiated cross country in 1980, and North Carolina A&T earned the inaugural men’s crown. The first women’s cross country championship took place a year later, with Howard winning the first of its seven titles. Indoor Track and Field was also added in 1981, with South Carolina State capturing the men’s title and Howard winning the women’s crown. Tennis and golf returned as MEAC-governed sports in 1981 after a five-year hiatus. South Carolina State won all seven of the conference’s golf championships from 1972-1983 before the sport was discontinued after the 1983 championship. Baseball, which began in 1972, was discontinued following the 1977 season. It was brought back as a MEAC-governed sport along with women’s volleyball in 1983. Women’s softball became a MEAC-sanctioned sport in 1992. Bowling was officially sanctioned as a MEAC sport in 1999. The MEAC was the first conference to secure NCAA sanctioning for women’s bowling by adopting the club sport prior to the 1996-97 school year. SPORTS HIGHLIGHTS The MEAC has enjoyed tremendous athletic success over the years. In 2008, Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) defeated Arkansas State 4-2 to win the NCAA Women’s Bowling National Championship, a first for the conference and institution. With the victory, Lady Hawks’ Head Coach Sharon Brummell became the first female head coach to win an NCAA bowling title. The Lady Hawks repeated the feat in 2011 to win the team’s second NCAA title. During the same season, UMES won the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Intercollegiate Team Championships (ITC), becoming the first team to win two national championships during the same season.

South Carolina State represented the MEAC in 1976 and 1979, winning both outings over Winston-Salem State and Norfolk State respectively. In addition to the 1976 and 1979 crowns, South Carolina State won MEAC football titles in 1974-78, 1980-83, 1994, 2004, 2008 and 2009.

McCorory was named the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Division I National Athlete of the Year for the 2010 Indoor Track and Field season. In outdoor track and field, North Carolina Central won the first three MEAC titles. The quartet of Melvin Bassett, Robert Ouko, Julius Sang and Larry Black set the world record in the sprint medley relay with a time of 38.19 in the 1972 Olympics.

Among them, 11 have earned medals during the Summer Games. In 2003, Florida A&M became the first MEAC school to win a volleyball match in the NCAA Championship, with a first-round win over Winthrop. In 2004, the Lady Rattlers became the first historically black college/university to rank in the Top 25 of the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) national poll.

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING MISSION STATEMENT Delaware State University Strength and Conditioning is committed to developing the total student-athlete through their experiences within a competitive training environment. This will be accomplished by focusing on reducing the risk of injury and maximizing athletic potential through individual evaluation and program design.

FACILITIES Delaware State University student-athletes benefit from a first-rate strength and conditioning facility. The first phase of the DSU’s $50 million Strength and Conditioning/Wellness Center/Student Union opened during the fall of 2008. A dedication ceremony for the facility was attended by local and state elected officials and many former DSU student-athletes, including NFL standouts, Jamal Jackson and Darnerien McCants. The strength and conditioning center is a 17,000 feet, state-of-the-art complex with all the amenities of a major college facility. The center is connected to the north end of the Memorial Hall main gymnasium and is solely for the use of Hornet student-athletes. The facility includes a weight room, laundry room, offices for conditioning coaches and locker rooms for men’s and women’s basketball. The addition also includes a two-story entrance and lobby with ticketing area. Phase II of the project involved the construction of a Wellness Center specifically for the general student population and the general public. This section is located on the southeast end of Memorial Hall and includes the renovation of an existing auxiliary basketball court and construction of a new basketball court as well as new offices, concession space, men’s and women’s locker rooms and a swimming pool.

DOVER Visitors to Kent County, Delaware are pleasantly surprised by the variety of historical and cultural attractions, beautiful farmland and coastal scenery, and curious mix of old traditions and modern high-tech culture. In Kent County, visitors can find Amish buggies on city streets, delicate shorebirds and giant C-5 Galaxy military cargo planes, quiet museums and exciting NASCAR races, arts and antiques, Colonial history, slots and harness racing. Dover, the capital of the First State, invites you to experience life in a small American city – history, tax-free shopping and ambiance, all in a clean safe and friendly environment. You can spend the day shopping or strolling the quaint tree-lined streets to take in the city’s historic architecture, and spend the evenings at the theater or trying your luck at a gaming facility.

You can step back in time, literally, by standing on the very corner where in 1787, delegates to Delaware’s Constitutional Convention ratified the U.S. Constitution – thus giving Delaware its “First State” moniker. The area’s collection of small towns as well as the natural beauty of places such as Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge, provide hours of fun and adventure for visitors of all ages. Dover’s central location in Delaware makes Kent County the perfect place for regional meetings and conventions, and a great overnight destination for tours of the state. Wilmington and the Brandywine Valley attractions are only one hour’s drive to the north. Delaware’s beach resorts, including Lewes, Bethany, and Rehoboth, are only one hour’s drive to the south. Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. are all within a two-hour drive. Kent County puts you right in the middle of the charm and excitement of “America at its Best.”

DOVER AIR FORCE BASE

Dover Air Force Base is important to the country’s defense, as it represents one-fourth of the nation’s strategic airlift capacity. Approximately 7,000 people are stationed at the DAFB. Dover is home to 36 giant C-5 Galaxy cargo planes, which are used to transport troops and equipment wherever they are needed around the world. The C-5 is the largest airplane in the U.S. military. Each plane is nearly as long as a football field, and could carry six motor coaches in its hold. The base cargo terminal known as the “Superport” is the largest anywhere in the US military, processing more tons of cargo than Kennedy airport in NY. The Air Mobility Command (AMC) Museum on the DAFB has over 24 aircraft on display, and features more multi-engine aircraft than the National Air & Space Museum in Washington, DC. Veteran aircraft on display include a C-47 “Gooney Bird” that dropped paratroopers over Normandy on D-Day.

SOFTBALL ATTRACTIONS

ARTS & CULTURE

Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge is a 16,000-acre haven along the Delaware Bay coast east of Smyrna, with salt marshes, ponds, fields, and forests. Visitors come from all over the world to see the variety of migratory shorebirds and waterfowl that stop to feed at the refuge, an important feeding stop on the Atlantic Flyway.

The Greater Dover is rich in arts and cultural activities. The Schwartz Center for the Arts, of which DSU is a partner, is one of the premier performing arts venues in the state. From live performances, films and special events, to meetings and receptions, the Schwartz Center offers something for all tastes.

OUTDOOR ACTIVITES

The Dover Symphony Orchestra is a regional organization founded in 1967 and comprised of professional and amateur musicians of all ages.

The Delaware Bay, just East of Dover, offers some of the best fishing and crabbing in the region. The bay serves as a breeding ground for many aquatic species, including horseshoe crabs. The bay is also a prime oyster ground. The area also features first-rate golf courses, bike trails, scenic paths, boating, state parks, conservation areas, lakes and greenways.

EVENTS The Old Dover Days Festival has existed in one form or another in the capital city since 1933. It is held on The Green and Legislative Mall, two beautiful outdoor parks in the historic downtown district. Traditional elements and new components bring in thousands of visitors each year with attendance reaching 15,000. Old Dover Days is a celebration of the First State’s Capital City and features a parade, maypole dancing, food court, re-enactors, walking tours, free entertainment and much more. The Amish Bike Tour, African-American Festival, Delmarva Folk Festival, Jazz & Blues Festival, Diamond State BBQ Championship and Wyoming Peach Festival are other events that bring thousands to Central Delaware each year.

The Johnson Victrola museum is a tribute to Delaware’s native son, Eldridge Reeves Johnson, who founded the Victor Talking Machine Company in 1901. Exhibits include phonographs, recordings, memorabilia, trademarks, objects, and paintings that highlight Mr. Johnson’s successful business enterprises and chronicle the development of the sound-recording industry. In 2004, under the leadership of Board Chair Dr. Scott D. Miller (President of Wesley College), a strategic alliance was formed to partner the resources of Wesley College, Delaware State University, and The Friends of the Capital Theater, to maximize usage and position the historic treasure as the premiere performing arts center south of Wilmington. In January 2007, the relationship was formalized with the three becoming equal partners in the operation, management and programming of the Center.

DOVER INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY

Dover Downs International Speedway hosts two NASCAR Sprint Cup/Nationwide Series race weekends each year. Dover has the largest seating capacity (140,000 seats) of any sports facility between New York and the Carolinas. The “Monster Mile” has challenged many professional drivers as they compete for the checkered flag. The concrete track with 24 degree banking is the first and only concrete superspeedway in NASCAR history, providing awesome racing action.
