EKU PRESIDENT Dr. Doug Whitlock University President

Year at EKU: Third Year Alma Mater: Eastern Kentucky, `65, `66 Dr. Doug Whitlock’s hi l k’ llove aff ffair i with i h Eastern E began b when h he h arrived on his hometown campus as a first-generation undergraduate student in 1961. It continued unabated throughout a 38-year career in various administrative and teaching roles at EKU, including a five-year stint as Vice President for Administrative Affairs, from 1998-2003. His last three years of service were as a half-time faculty member in the Department of Computer Science. As he addressed faculty and staff at a campus-wide convocation on Aug. 15, 2007, just two days after being named President for the interim, Dr. Whitlock recalled the tremendous difference the institution he cherishes has made in his own life. (The Eastern faculty) “largely made me what I was then and am now,” he said.

In February 2009, Dr. Whitlock was on hand at the State Capitol to announce the partnership between Eastern Kentucky University and General Atomics to examine the potential for a cellulose-derived biodiesel fuel industry in Kentucky.

“I will admit to you that I love Eastern, and when my service in the presidency is finished, if I have helped more of you love her too, then I will have done my job.”

After two years of active duty with the U.S. Army, Dr. Whitlock returned to Eastern in 1968 to serve as Director of Publications. Three years later, he was named Director of Public Information. In 1976, he was tapped by President J.C. Powell to serve as Executive Assistant to the President, continuing in that role through the administration of President Hanly Funderburk. As Vice President for Administrative Affairs, Dr. Whitlock was responsible for Facilities Services, Public Safety, Information Technology and Delivery Systems, Media Resources, and University Farms. For a portion of his tenure, he also served as the institution’s chief financial officer. Dr. Whitlock has long been an active participant in community life, serving since 1999 on the Madison County School Board, including two terms as chair. He also has served as a consultant with the Kentucky School Boards Association. He is an Elder and past board chair in the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). He and his wife, Joanne, have been married 39 years and have two grown children, Robert and Janet. At his first convocation as President, Dr. Whitlock offered faculty and staff one gauge by which his stint as President may be judged: “I will admit to you that I love Eastern, and when my service in the presidency is finished, if I have helped more of you love her too, then I will have done my job.”

– President Whitlock – On Oct. 22, 2007, the interim label was removed and now, as EKU’s 11th President, Dr. Whitlock is devoted to upholding the rich tradition of his alma mater while guiding her to even greater heights of excellence. After earning two degrees from Eastern – a bachelor’s degree in history and social science in 1965 and a master’s degree in history a year later – Dr. Whitlock earned his doctoral degree in higher education from the University of Kentucky in 1981.

Did You Know … … Dr. Whitlock holds two degrees from Eastern Kentucky University – a bachelor’s degree in history and social science as well as a master’s degree in history.

OVC Men’s Cross Country Coach of the Year Awards (16): 1983, 1984, 1987, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1997, 1999, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009

Now in his 30th season at Eastern Kentucky University, head coach Rick Erdmann enters the 2009-10 cross country and track and field season looking to build on a distinguished coaching career that includes 53 OVC Coach of the Year awards, 39 OVC cross country titles and 17 OVC track and field championships since his arrival in 1979. His influence on EKU’s track and field and cross country program is immeasurable. Under Erdmann’s guidance, the Eastern Kentucky women have captured 13 OVC track and field titles and 24 cross country championships, including a string of 19 consecutive cross country banners from 1981-1999. The women’s chokehold on the OVC was snapped in 2000; however, the Colonels regained their championship form from 2002-03 and again from 2006-09. The men have also enjoyed success during Erdmann’s tenure, winning four OVC indoor track and field championships and 14 cross country titles, including four straight cross country banners from 2006-09. The men’s 2008 OVC cross country championship ranks as one of Erdmann’s finest coaching jobs as the Colonels delivered one of the most dominant performances in league championships history. Five of the top six finishers in the race wore maroon and white. Only one Southeast Missouri State runner threw a wrench in the Colonels’ hopes of finishing 1-5, a feat that has only been accomplished three times in the history of the championships (EKU did it in 1965 and 1989 and Western Kentucky did it in 1980). The Colonels’ top runner at the 2008 OVC Cross Country championships was Joseph Maina. Seven months after the cross country championships, Maina qualified for the NCAA Track and Field Championships in the 5,000 meters with a time of 14:08.10 The Colonels’ first place finish at the 2007 OVC Cross Country Championships was led by the efforts of three-time All-American Jacob Korir, who earned the OVC Male Cross Country Athlete of the Year award following the meet. Korir went on to place second at the 2007 Southeast Region Championships and sixth at the 2007 NCAA Cross Country Championships in Terre Haute, Ind.

Tim Moore Assistant Coach

...Both Rick Erdmann and Tim Moore are members of the Kentucky Track and Cross Country Coaches Association Hall of Fame.

28th Year Hometown: Berea, Ky. Alma Mater: Berea College, `77

Moore was selected to coach the South Women’s team at the 1991 United States Olympic Festival held in Los Angeles, Calif. He has been appointed as Junior Coordinator of the USA Track and Field Hurdle Development Committee and has also been selected as women’s track and field coordinator by the Kentucky Association of USA Track and Field. A 1977 graduate of Berea College, Moore competed in the high jump at Berea and spent one season on the basketball team under head coach Roland Weirwillie. Upon graduating with an undergraduate degree in physical education, Moore began his coaching career on the high school level at Lexington Sayre High School, where he served as the head basketball and track and field/cross country coach. After three years at Sayre, during which time he earned his master’s degree in physical education from EKU in 1979, Moore moved into the college ranks by accepting the men’s track and field head coaching position at Berea in 1980. Moore has written several articles on motivation and track and field techniques. He has also participated in several elite hurdle coaches’ summits and a women’s development summit at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Moore keeps busy by serving on hurdle development committees and contributing to clinics across the country. He and his wife Sandra reside in Richmond and have one son, Steven. Sandra is also employed by EKU and serves as the Special Assistant to the Provost for University Diversity. She is finishing her Ph.D. in administration in higher education.

Tim Moore is entering his 28th season as the assistant track and field and cross country coach at Eastern Kentucky University, and he has been an integral part of the program’s success ever since arriving. “Coach Erdmann and I have been together for many years and I think we have helped improve EKU’s recognition across the country in track and field and cross country,” Moore said. “Our main focus is graduating our student-athletes and providing them with the best competition we can to make them the best they can be. The support we get from our strong alumni base plays a major role in what we are able to accomplish.” In January of 2009, Moore’s hard work and dedication to EKU was legitimized when he was inducted into the Kentucky Track and Cross Country Coaches Association Hall of Fame. Moore was bestowed with the honor at the association’s fourth Annual Awards and Hall of Fame Banquet held in the Hall of Fame Room at the KHSAA Offices on Executive Drive in Lexington. Four other coaches – Roland Dale (Shelby County), Craig Hopkins (Apollo), Edward Newton (Male, Ballard, Shawnee and Central) and Mike Johnson (Berea College) – were also inducted into the Hall of Fame. Moore’s duties at EKU are numerous. He works with the hurdlers, sprinters and field event athletes for both the men’s and women’s track and field teams. He also coordinates all aspects of recruiting for the track and field and cross country programs. The Berea, Ky. native coached two OVC champion hurdlers during the 2009 track and field season. Iceca Epps won the women’s 60-meter hurdles at the 2009 OVC Indoor Track and Field Championships with a time of 8.61, edging Eastern Illinois’ Chandra Golden by three-tenths of a second. Andre Evans, meanwhile, won the men’s 110-meter hurdles at the OVC Outdoor Track and Field Championships in a time of 14.76. Moore also coached six-time All-American Jackie Humphrey, who ran the sixth-fastest time ever by an American in the 100-meter hurdles (12.83) and won the U.S. Olympic track and field trials in record-setting fashion during the 1988 season. Moore coached Humphrey in the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, South Korea.

Team Sportsmanship Awards The Colonels have won numerous OVC Championships under coaches Rick Erdmann and Tim Moore; however, the coaching staff at EKU also stresses sportsmanship. This is evidenced by the eight OVC Team Sportsmanship Awards the Colonel cross country and track and field teams have won since the award was created in 2005. The men’s cross country team has won four consecutive awards (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009), the women’s cross country team has won one (2006), the men’s outdoor track and field team has won one (2007), the men’s indoor track and field team has won one (2008) and the women’s outdoor track and field team has won one (2008).

fACILITIES Tom Samuels Track Mondo was chosen for the Olympics. It’s a testament to the track’s performance and quality.” Developed to maintain its initial physical properties over its life, Super X provides consistent performance. The vulcanized natural rubber surface provides maximum elasticity and unparalleled durability, and its embossed, textured finish makes it extremely easy to maintain with no resurfacing required. This high-performance track is renowned for its shock absorption and optimal energy return, and an ideal blend of speed and comfort minimizes the occurrence of injuries. More than 1,100 Mondo Super X tracks have been installed globally, and more than 220 world records and countless national and personal best records have been set on Mondo Super X tracks. EKU’s Mondo Super X track is the only one of its kind in the state of Kentucky, and it features a brand new Daktronics results board and a newly renovated disk/hammer ring.

Eastern Kentucky University installed a Mondo Super X rubber track at its Tom Samuels Track in the summer of 2008. The new surface replaced an eight-year-old urethane track. Tom Samuels Track, named in honor of the former EKU football and track coach, was dedicated in 1976. Each June, the track hosts the Kentucky Special Olympics State Summer Games’ track and field events, and in May 2009 it was the site for the Ohio Valley Conference Outdoor Track and Field Championships. Mondo’s Super X track has been the world’s top track for more than 30 years. Globally recognized as the fastest, most durable and environmentally safest track available, Mondo’s Super X track has been used in the past eight Olympic Games, including the 2008 Beijing Olympics. “Many of our athletes have achieved faster times on Mondo tracks, and we want to provide them with the track that will help them reach top speeds,” assistant coach Tim Moore said. “Mondo’s rubber surface has a longer lifespan than urethane tracks, and we were impressed that

Cross Country Facilities The EKU cross country team is blessed with the Wood Chip Trail for practice and competition. A beautiful, winding one-mile loop, the Wood Chip Trail is located near the Stratton Building and the police training facilities on the southeast portion of campus. The trail was finished in 2005. The EKU cross country team hosts its annual relay meet at the Wood Chip Trail every year in September. For training purposes, the cross country team uses a 5,000-meter grass course located on campus near the Wood Chip Trail. The course is prime for distance training as it features numerous rolling hills. It is also a very attractive course that boasts four wooden bridges and several treelined stretches while, at one point, weaving around a pond. “We are very lucky to have two cross country training facilites right here on campus,” head coach Rick Erdmann said. “Our cross country student-athletes benefit not only from the quality but from the proximity of these trails.”

However, it was junior Ashli Joseph (20:30.60) and sophomore Danielle Mason (20:35.77) that more than likely won it for the women’s team, finishing 11th and 13th overall. “Ashli Joseph and Danielle Mason were, without a doubt, the key to the women’s win,” Erdmann said. Junior Lydia Kosgei (20:46.56) was the Colonels’ sixth finisher in 16th place overall while seniors Maria Doerger (23rd place/21:16.58) and Sondra Nieporte (34th place/21:44.65) rounded out EKU’s eight competitors. Erdmann noted that the entire women’s field was misdirected at some point during the race and ended up running somewhere between a 5K and a 6K, thus leading to the high times. Leitich, Bundotich and Pagano were named first team All-OVC following the meet while Joseph and Mason were given second team All-OVC honors.

Cross Country

The Eastern Kentucky University women’s cross country team won its fourth straight Ohio Valley Conference title in 2009. “Just having the opportunity to win four consecutive league championships is something we’re really proud of and it’s a testament to the talent and mental strength of these women,” 40time (men and women combined) OVC Cross Country Coach of the Year Rick Erdmann said. Despite having won the last three OVC Championships, the Colonels lost Barbara Phelan and Alli McMaster to graduation, both of whom were top-15 in the conference last year, and were picked to finish second in a preseason poll of league head coaches. Upstart Murray State, who the women edged at last year’s conference championships, was picked to finish first. At the Vanderbilt Commodore Classic on Sept. 9, however, EKU defeated Murray State by 59 points en route to finishing Track and Field second behind only the host Commodores. The Eastern Kentucky University women’s track and field It was the only time the two teams met during the regular team is young and looking to make great strides during the 2010 season. season. On Oct. 31, on a wet and miserably muddy course, the ColoPagano and sophomore sprinter Diamond Benjamin are the nels proved that Commodore Classic was no fluke, defeating only returning individual OVC champions on the team.

Her continued development will be crucial to the women’s team’s performance in 2010. Benjamin burst on the OVC scene as a freshman last year, winning the 60 meters at the OVC Indoor Track and Field Championships with a meet-record time of 7.55 and then placing second in the 100 meters (11.84) and third in the 200 meters (24.69) at the OVC Outdoor Track and Field Championships. For her efforts, she was named OVC Female Track and Field Freshman of the Year at the conclusion of the 2009 season. Benjamin, however, wasn’t the only sprinter to make noise at the OVC level last year. Fellow sophomore Lutisha Bowen was one of the most versatile athletes on the team in 2009. The Louisville, Ky. native was the team’s leading scorer with 16 points at the OVC Indoor Track and Field Championships. Junior veterans Jasmyn Norris and Tashana Johnson will shoulder a majority of the workload in the hurdles events. Norris took fifth in the 60-meter hurdles at the OVC Indoor Track and Field Championships (9.25) while Johnson was seventh in the 60-meter hurdles at the indoor championships in a time of 9.04. Assistant coach Tim Moore also expects freshmen Bianca Forbes, DanHeisha Harding, Arryn Hopkins and Jazzmin Jeter to be major contributors at the OVC level this year. “We have a lot of returning women who can be special athletes in the OVC,” Moore said. “But, at the same time, we’re going to be counting on several new faces to score points for the Kat Pagano Diamond Benjamin women’s team.” 11

2009--10 mEN 2009 mEN''S oUTLOOK Cross Country The Eastern Kentucky University men’s cross country team won its fourth consecutive Ohio Valley Conference Championship in 2009. Coming into the season, that goal seemed like a foregone conclusion. The Colonels were picked, almost unanimously, by OVC head coaches to repeat, and 2008 OVC Male Cross Country Athlete of the Year Joseph Maina was the only runner gone from a team that placed five of the top six finishers in last year’s conference championship meet. “I think the men are certainly capable of repeating,” 40-time (men and women combined) OVC Cross Country Coach of the Year Rick Erdmann said before the season. “Like every year, though, it will all depend on the attitude the kids bring to practice and how they progress throughout the season.” Injuries, however, slowly took a toll on EKU’s vaunted depth. Junior Evans Kiptoo, the third-place finisher at last year’s conference championship meet, and sophomore David Mutuse both accepted medical redshirts and the weight of EKU’s dynasty fell on the shoulders of some relative newcomers. Those newcomers did not disappoint. Junior Wesley Ruttoh – a transfer from Butler College – won the individual title at the 2009 OVC Cross Country Championships in his first year as a Colonel, completing the 8K course in a time of 25:39.24. A trio of Colonel veterans – seniors Stanley Mugo (26:03.90), Elkana Kurgat (26:08.61) and Chris Rengifo (26:08.81) – then finished third-fifth and within five seconds of each other to put EKU in position to win. Four runners who had no bearing on last year’s conference championship – sophomore Chris Rice (26:50.16), senior Josephat Melly (26:51.80), sophomore Alex Dreyer (26:55.30) and freshman Daniel Jones (27:01.01) – emerged as factors in 2009 as the Colonels impressively placed all eight of their runners in the top13 of the 67-runner race and, in doing so, ran away with the title, defeating their nearest competitor, Eastern Illinois, by 67 points. Ruttoh then finished second at the Southeast Regional Championships in Louisville, covering the 10K course in a time of 30:04.46 and defeating the reigning individual BIG EAST and ACC champions. His performance at regionals earned Ruttoh a trip to the NCAA Championships, where – despite falling in the first in the mile – he finished 87th out of 250 runners and represented the Colonels proudly.

Track and Field After finishing second at the 2009 OVC Outdoor Track and Field Championships and third at the OVC Indoor Track and Field Championships, the Eastern Kentucky University men’s track and field team will try to go from merely a top OVC team to an OVC championship team in 2010. The ingredients for that level of success are in place, especially in the distance events. Maina – who qualified for the NCAA National Championships in the 5,000 meters last year – has one semester of outdoor track and field eligibility remaining. The Ruiru, Kenya native is a three-time OVC champion in track and field and has run the second-fastest 5,000 meters time in school history (14:06.43). Senior cross country runners Mugo, Kurgat and Rengifo will also be key components to the track and field team in 2010. Mugo, the reigning OVC Co-Male Track and Field Athlete of the Year, is one of the top 3,000-meter steeplechase runners in the Mideast Region. Mugo, who has won the steeplechase at the OVC Championships two years in a row, ran his fastest time (8:52.07) at the Penn Relays in April and will attempt to make nationals in the event this year. Junior football player-turned-sprinter Shannon Davis will lead the sprints team in 2010. The Atlanta, Ga. native was the 100-meter and 200-meter OVC champion in 2008 before winning the 400 meters at the 2009 OVC Outdoor Track and Field Championships with a time of 47.50. Erdmann noted that junior Kris Hawkins will also have to become a factor in the middle distance events for the Colonels to have success at the OVC level. Another converted football player, senior Andre Evans, will also be a key contributor on the track and field team. Evans, in his first year running hurdles at the collegiate level, took second in the 60-meter hurdles at the OVC Indoor Track and Field Championships with a time of 8.33 before winning his first conference title in the 110-meter hurdles at the OVC Outdoor Track and Field Championships in a time of 14.76. “We have had one of the top distance programs in the region over the years,” Erdmann said. “However, if our sprinters, middistance runners and hurdlers can become factors, we could make some noise at the OVC level this year.”

tHE mOBERLY bUILDING The Moberly Building

One of the most functional facilities available to Eastern Kentucky University athletics is the Harry Moberly Building, completed in the Fall of 2000 and dedicated in November of 2000. The building was named for former Eastern student-athlete, founding member of the EKU Colonel Club and active supporter of EKU athletics, Harry Moberly. A quarterback for the Eastern football team from 1931-34, Moberly’s visionary leadership was instrumental in establishing, building and strengthening the Colonel Club, EKU’s intercollegiate athletics booster organization. The building, located adjacent to Roy Kidd Stadium, is a 40,000 square-foot, $ 4.75 million state-of-the-art facility. The first floor features a strength and weight development area which was dedicated in November of 2000 as the Raymond E. Giltner Conditioning Center. The Giltner Center, named for the late Raymond Giltner who served two terms as president of the EKU National Alumni Assocation, as a director of the EKU Foundation and vice chair of the Foundation’s Planned Giving Committee, houses equipment designed to help build strength, muscle

development and rehabilitation for EKU’s student-athletes. Also located on the first floor is the Bobby Barton Athletic Training Room for EKU’s 17 intercollegiate athletics teams. The facility provides an in-ground hydrotherapy pool with rehabilitation equipment, three above-ground therapeutic pools, X-ray equipment and examination rooms. A 6,000 square-foot physical activity area/laboratory for physical education activities and the study of motion is also featured on the first floor. A “Wall of Fame” displays the names of contributors to the University’s “Competitive Edge Campaign”, which raised private funds to help construct this building. The second floor features a wellness center designed to facilitate aerobic conditioning. The center includes aerodynamic equipment for bicycling, stair-step aerobics and other health-club type equipment. Also on the second floor are three large classrooms, physiology and computer laboratories and state-of-the-art offices.

ATHLETICS HALL OF FAME EKU Athletics Hall of Fame On December 14, 2005, Eastern Kentucky University announced the creation of an Athletics Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame’s mission is to commemorate and honor student-athletes, other individuals and teams whose accomplishments have contributed to the esteemed tradition of Colonel Athletics and whose character has reflected positively on the University. An extraordinary group of individuals, previously recognized by the University during the 1974 Centennial Athletic Awards Banquet, were inducted into the Hall of Fame on Nov. 3, 2006. This group of 25 is called The Founders. They were joined by an inaugural class of 13 in 2006, nine members in 2007, nine members in 2008 and six members in 2009 plus a team of distinction. Of these 56 members comprising the EKU Athletics Hall of Fame, seven are track and field or cross country athletes. They are Grant Colehour, William Rucker, and Kenneth Silvious (Founders); Jackie Humphrey-Corbin (Inaugural class of 2006); Pamela Raglin-Andrews, John Nganga, and Goebel Ritter (Class of 2007); and Rose Gilmore-Skepple (Class of 2008).

Grant Colehour

Grant Colehour

A five-time All-American in track and a four-time All-American in cross country, Grant Colehour was a member of the United States final Olympic Trials team in the 10,000 meters at South Lake Tahoe in 1968, where he placed sixth. He was captain of the EKU track and cross country teams all four seasons he was a member of the squads. A three-time national college champion in the six-mile run, 5,000-meter run and 10,000-meter run, he was the Ohio Valley Conference cross country champion four times (1965-68) and an OVC champion in track in five events. Colehour was a member of the United States World Cross Country Team in 1966 and 1967 and ran in Europe in the summer of 1966 in such countries as Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Norway. One of the first All-Americans in the University’s history, he held EKU records in the mile, two-mile, three-mile and six-mile runs.

Billy Rucker Billy Rucker, one of the school’s outstanding quarter-milers, was a four-year letterman in track and participated on the freshman basketball team at Eastern. He completed his four-year career at Eastern undefeated in the 440-yard dash and led the Maroons to their first Ohio Valley Conference championship in 1957. That ’57 season saw Rucker finish first or second in five events at the OVC meet at Murfreesboro, Tenn., including the 100-yard, 220-yard dash and 440-yard dash, broad jump and the anchor leg of the mile relay. Upon receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in industrial arts in 1959, he serve as an instrument designer with H.K. Ferguson Company in San Francisco, Calif., from 1960-62. William Rucker

Ken Silvious

K Sil i Ken Silvious

Ken Silvious, two-time All-American in both cross country (1968, 1969) and track (1970, 1971), had four very successful years at Eastern. Perhaps his best came in 1970 when he placed first in every dual meet and won the Ohio Valley Conference individual championship, setting a new course record with a time of 29:16.0. Breaking records was certainly not an oddity for Silvious was able to set new course standards in six of these. Silvious won two individual OVC cross country titles and placed second his freshman and sophomore years. He placed 14th in the 1969 NCAA Cross Country Championships. Silvious still holds the Eastern record for the 3,000 meter steeplechase with a clocking of 8:44.8 set in 1970. Since graduating, Ken served one year as the youth director of the Southside YMCA in Columbus, Ohio. In 1973 he was appointed program director and membership chairman at the YMCA, and served as Vice President of the Columbus YMCA Metropolitan Staff Cabinet.

Jackie Humphrey-Corbin

Jackie Humphrey-Corbin

A 1988 Olympian who represented the United States in Seoul, Korea, Jackie Humphrey-Corbin is one of the most decorated athletes ever to compete at Eastern. Humphrey ran the sixth-fastest time ever by an American in the 100-meter hurdles (12.83 seconds) and won the U.S. Olympic track and field trials in record-setting fashion during the 1988 season. On August 29 of that year, the city of Richmond held a Jackie Humphrey Day to celebrate her accomplishments. Driven by a passion to be the best, Humphrey was a six-time NCAA All-American. She competed in the NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Championships each year of her collegiate career (1985-88). Her best finish was second place in the 1987 100-meter hurdles, a race she finished in 13.06 seconds. Humphrey personally set three indoor and one outdoor program records and was part of four indoor and four outdoor relays that established program marks. Following her senior season, Humphrey earned Ohio Valley Conference Female Athlete of the Year accolades. 40

man and was an instrumental reason for EKU’s dominance in the Ohio Valley Conference cross country championships. She went on to Syracuse University to complete her master’s degree in nursing. Copeland, who was drafted by the NFL’s Cleveland Browns, was a criminal justice major with a 3.68 GPA from Meigs, Ga. While his main athletic involvement at Eastern Kentucky was in football, he was an important asset to the sprint relay teams. Copeland retired from the National Football League after a fouryear starting stint at defensive back with the 1991 Super Bowl champion Washington Redskins. Blossom, of Indianapolis, Ind., was a 1999 graduate of Eastern Kentucky. She was an Ohio Valley Conference cross country individual champion and captured numerous OVC track individual championships. She was one of the main reasons the EKU women were able to keep their streak of 17-consecutive OVC cross country titles alive, competing on three of those championship teams. Blossom maintained a 4.0 grade point average while at Eastern Kentucky. A native of Niederwillinger, Germany, and a 1999 graduate of EKU, Blochwitz compiled a 3.77 GPA in photography at Eastern. He was a 1999 All-OVC outdoor team choice after winning the 400-meter hurdles at the conference meet. A five-time All-OVC track athlete, Blochwitz is the school’s record holder in the 400-meter hurdles (50.61). A first-team selection to the 1998 Academic All-District team for Spring Sports At-Large, Blochwitz is an eight-time German champion in the 400-meter hurdles.

Eastern Kentucky University’s track and field program is not only one of the top teams in the Southeast on the track, but with 14 CoSIDA Academic All-Americans in 17 years, it ranks among the best in the country in the classroom. EKU’s 13 Academic All-Americans – Roger Chapman, Allison Kotouch, Danny Copeland, Lisa Malloy (2), Amy Clements (3), Sarah Blossom (4) and Daniel Blochwitz – show the pride that the track and field program has in academics. The CoSIDA Academic All-District and Academic All-America teams are voted on by members of the organization, and a student- athlete must have at least a 3.2 cumulative GPA to be eligible. Chapman, hailing from Stevenage, England, and a 1987 graduate of Eastern Kentucky, boasted a 3.98 grade point average at Eastern while completing a degree in computer science in three and one half years. At the time of his selection, Chapman was also an outstanding middle distance runner at EKU, holding school records in the indoor 800 and 1,000-meter runs. Along with his All-American honor, he received an NCAA post-graduate scholarship to attend the University of Edinburg, Scotland. Chapman now has his doctorate and is a college professor. Kotouch, of Baden, Pa., was Eastern’s second track studentathlete and the first female to receive Academic All-American honors. She earned her degree in nursing, while maintaining a perfect 4.0 GPA through her junior year. She was the 1985 Ohio Valley Conference cross country Athlete of the Year as a fresh-

The grants were awarded to student-athletes who excelled academically and athletically and who were in their final year of intercollegiate athletics competition. The Eastern Kentucky men’s and women’s cross country teams were honored as All-Academic Cross Country Teams by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) in 2007. To be honored as an All-Academic Team, teams were required to compete in an NCAA regional meet and have at least a cumulative GPA of 3.0. The EKU women’s track and field team was named a 2008 U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association All-Academic Team. The selection of the All-Academic Teams was based on a combination of academic and athletic achievements. To qualify, the team had to carry a minimum 3.0 team cumulative grade-point average. With 13 Academic All-Americans, Eastern Kentucky University’s track and field and cross country programs re-emphasize the meaning of “student” in student-athlete, and continue to prove that academics and athletics can work together.

A native of Mechanicsville, Va., Malloy was EKU’s first repeat member of the Academic All-American team. An English major, Malloy was a two-time Ohio Valley Conference cross country individual champion and also excelled during the indoor and outdoor track seasons. Malloy is now teaching in Richmond, Va., and was voted “Teacher of the Year” in 1993. Clements, of Erlanger, Ky., was EKU’s second repeat member of this elite group of Academic All-Americans. She was the first to win the award three times. Clements was a physical education major and graduated in May of 1995. Clements recorded many 4.0 grade point averages while at Eastern and won the Ohio Valley Conference individual cross country championship in 1991, 1992 and 1994. Jacob Korir was the latest Colonel to be honored for academics, earning a spot on the CoSIDA Academic All-District Track and Field second team for District IV on June 7, 2006. The three-time All-American is a member of the national academic fraternity Chi Alpha Sigma which honors student-athletes of junior and senior status with a GPA of 3.4 or above and was also named an EKU Scholar Athlete (highest GPA on team). Korir was awarded an educational grant through the NCAA postgraduate scholarship

Athletic support services Bratzke Student-Athlete Academic Success Center The Chad Bratzke Student-Athlete Academic Success Center serves all student-athletes as a comprehensive academic resource center. The Bratzke Center and staff, located in Alumni Coliseum, is designed to aid EKU’s student-athletes in all facets of their academic pursuits. Our goal is for student-athletes at EKU to have a great athletic and academic experience, and graduate Dr. Randy Kennedy with Colonel pride. Director of Bratzke Student-athletes at EKU continue to excel acaCenter demically, with almost 50 percent of all studentathletes earning a 3.0 GPA. In the 2008-09 school year, 136 studentathletes were recognized at the Academic Awards breakfast for their accomplishments in the classroom, including the Bratzke Award of Excellence, Presidential Scholar, Dean’s List and the OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll. EKU also continues to lead the OVC and all state programs in football APR (Academic Progress Report) scores which is determined by retention and eligibility. Named after Chad Bratzke, the former EKU All-American and Indianapolis Colts’ defensive lineman whose generous donation helped make the center possible, the Bratzke Center meets the needs of current EKU student-athletes. The 3,000-square foot Bratzke Center includes a tutoring center, a 27-station computer lab, an academic advising office suite, a teaching classroom and quiet study area. Student-athletes at EKU come in and utilize the center for studying, requesting and meeting with tutors, checking their e-mail or stop by for advising. The professional staff is trained to work with student-athletes in advising, class scheduling, monitoring academic progress and assisting student-athletes with academic success strategies. The Bratzke Center employs tutors trained to assist studentathletes in many different subjects. These tutors are a free service to EKU student-athletes and can be requested at any point throughout the semester. Tutors are trained to work with students and assist them in study skills, individual course instruction and encourage academic success. In addition, EKU has several tutoring labs on campus that are available to all students as well. In addition to the computer lab, EKU student-athletes also have access to a scanner and duplex printer in the lab, as well as laptop computers which are available to check out for team travel. These electronic resources assist EKU student-athletes to be successful while their team is in season. As a part of the departmental

computer lab agreement, student-athletes are also able to access licensed software products such as SPSS, SAS, Adobe Photoshop and other useful programs. Many student-athletes participate in the Work Intensely Now (WIN) mentoring program, designed to help students find academic success early in their academic career. These students meet once a week with a trained mentor and discuss time management skills, organizational skills, as well as track upcoming assignments through weekly WIN reports. This information is helpful to the student-athletes but is also shared with the coaching staff to keep them updated on the students progress. Student-athletes with disabilities or barriers to learning may be in the WIN program but the Bratzke staff also assists with their registration with the Office of Disability Services (ODS) to make sure students are provided with proper documentation. Academic monitoring entails ensuring that student-athletes are making progress towards a degree as specified by the NCAA and OVC, and successfully monitoring class participation through communication and early alert programs. Faculty report grades twice a semester to the Bratzke staff to help avoid potential problems and pitfalls. In addition, EKU faculty post midterm grades so that students at EKU can track their course progress. The Bratzke Center also communicates regularly with studentathletes through the EKU Bratzke Center web site, as well as e-mail messaging about important information. The Bratzke Center is headed by Dr. Randy Kennedy, Director of Athletic Academic Advising. He is assisted by Jennifer Parsons and Jenna Sample.

A Brief Richmond History Richmond was founded in 1798 by Colonel John Miller, a Revolutionary War soldier. In 1798, the Kentucky Legislature authorized the moving of the Madison County seat from nearby Milford to land owned by Colonel Miller. The move was bitterly opposed by about 300 residents of the Milford area and a fight to retain the seat resulted between Dave Kennedy, who represented the Milford location, and William Kearly, who represented the new site. Although history does not record the results of the brawl, the county approved the move in March of 1798 and two acres of land were purchased from Colonel Miller. Court was held in his barn. On July 4, 1798, the site was officially named Richmond in honor of Miller’s birthplace, Richmond, Va.

The National Corvette Museum is located in Bowling Green.
