Though the Eastern Michigan University’s men’s cross country roster lies heavy with incoming recruits, every returning member of the Green and White knows what it is like to be a part of a championship team. In fact, they all know nothing different as the Eagles are riding a four-year Mid-American Conference Championship winning streak, and are looking for a fifth title to send two seniors out as indisputable champions. The Green and White will open the 2014 campaign on the home turf of a MAC foe, lifting the lid on the season with the Toledo Home Opener at Pearson Metropark in Oregon, Ohio. The Toledo Home Opener will start at 5:45 p.m. with the men’s race, and will serve as a triangular meet between EMU, the University of Toledo, and Bowling Green State University. The Eagles will remain in-state on Friday, Sept. 12, when they head to East Lansing, Mich. to compete in Big Ten member Michigan State’s Spartan Invitational. The Green and White will then take nearly a month off in preparation before they head to South Bend, Ind. for the Notre Dame Invitational at 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 3. After a two-week break, the Eagles will return to the Hoosier State to run

The Green and White will use the Hudson Mills Metro Park in Dexter, Mich. as its home course Friday, Oct. 24, with the first race beginning at 4 p.m. From there, the team will take head to Mount Pleasant, Mich. for the 2014 MAC Championship in an effort to win its fifth consecutive and 19th program title in history on Nov. 1. After the conference meet, the Green and White will head to Madison, Wis. for the NCAA Great Lakes Regional Friday, Nov. 14.

pionships won in conference history. A win this year would tie the EMU record for consecutive MAC Championships, as the Eagles dominated the conference from 1990-94. Coach Goodridge has planned out his 2014 schedule to prime his athletes for conference and national competition, explaining, “Our schedule will get progressively more challenging throughout the season as we prepare for the MAC Championship and NCAA Regionals.” Included in the more challenging matchups is the pair of meets in Indiana, as the Notre Dame Invitational and the Pre-NCAA Invitational are perenially competitive and heavily fielded events with some of the best harriers in the nation. The Green and White lost three of its scorers from the MAC Championship and NCAA Great Lakes Regional in Harry Dixon, Grzegorz Kalinowski, and Daryl Smith, but return four runners who competed in both meets for the team. Leading the pack will be Willy Fink and Warren Witchell, who were both All-MAC Second Team performers last season and will “provide us with the talent and experience to lead this team,” explained Goodridge. Witchell took eighth at the conference meet and

Goodridge is also expecting freshman Lahsene Bouchikhi to be an integral part of the Green and White’s core runners. Bouchikhi came to Eastern in the winter of 2013, missing out on the cross country season, but became an impact member of the indoor and outdoor track and field teams. The Belgian harrier is joined by a deep incoming class, including two transfers in Steve Hammond and Hlynur Andresson Hammond is using his final year of athletic eligbility to don the Green and White after graduating from Wingate University, where he was a three-time South Atlantic Conference First Team honoree and 2012 Runner of the Year. Andresson spent a year in the American high

The team will also have an abundance of true freshmen upon which it can rely for the upcoming season. “I’m excited about the potential of our incoming freshmen and transfers, and look forward to seeing their development,” exclaimed Goodridge about his vastly deep roster. The Eagles have relied on a mixture of experienced runners and new talent to stay at the top of the conference in years past, and the 2014 campaign will surely be no different with the balance of nine returning team members to go along with 10 newcomers. With ample talent present to continue its tradition of excellence, the Eagles will once again be a team to watch in the MAC for the upcoming season.

Head Coach

John Goodridge Long Island, ‘72, Michigan ‘74 14th Season

The 2014 campaign marks the 14th season for John Goodridge as the head cross country coach at Eastern Michigan University, and the veteran coach has certainly enjoyed an outstanding coaching career. With EMU’s Mid-American Conference championships in 2001, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013, Goodridge has also coached conference cross country championship teams in the MAC, Big Ten and Atlantic Coast Conference. Since arriving at EMU 14 seasons ago, he has coached two NCAA National Championship top-three individuals, including 2001 National Champion Boaz Cheboiywo, six cross country All-Americans, four NCAA Great Lakes Regional Individual Champions, eight MidAmerican Conference Individual Champions and 46 All-MAC harriers. Goodridge was privileged enough to celebrate his birthday with a 2013 MAC Championship and the honor of MAC Coach of the Year, which putsEMU’s head man in a tie with legendary head coach Bob Parks with nine distinctions. The Eagles earned their fourth straight and 18th overall title in school history with 42 points, led by seniors Grzegorz Kalinowski and Harry Dixon in third and fifth, respectively, for All-MAC First Team honors. Willy Fink and Warren Witchell garnered Second Team accolades. The Eagles went on to place 10th at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional with 295 points. The 2012 Eagles claimed the program’s third straight conference championship, the 17th overall in school history. Goodridge earned his eighth MAC Coach of the Year award. Terefe Ejigu and Daryl Smith claimed the top two spots at the MAC Championships with Ejigu crossing the finish line first. Both Eagles were named First Team All-MAC while Dixon picked up Second Team All-MAC accolades. The 2011 season marked the seventh time in Goodridge’s storied career that he would garner the MAC Coach of the Year award. Under Goodridge, the Eagles claimed their second consecutive MAC title, and sixth in the past seven years. , as the Eagles were paced by All-MAC first teamer Ejigu, and second teamer Smith.

DID YOU KNOW?? John Goodridge is one of just two active men’s coaches that has coached two podium NCAA Cross Country Championship teams, having accomplished the feat at both Wake Forest and EMU.

Head Coach John Goodridge

In 2010, Goodridge’s talented squad made its return atop the Mid-American Conference Cross Country Championship podium after the Eagles combined for the field-best 66 points. Sophomore All-MAC and All-Region selection Ejigu became just the 14th runner in EMU cross country history to take home the individual MAC championship. True freshman Dixon also garnered All-MAC honors, while teammates Ejigu, Matt Hammersmith, Austin Hendrix, and Andrew Pfeiffer were named to the Academic All-MAC Squad. Despite going into the 2009 season with four straight MAC titles, the Eagles went into the year without a clear No. 1 runner. However, Goodridge’s solid recruiting class and veterans such as Curtis Vollmar and Hammersmith allowed the Eagles to finish second overall at the MAC Championship in Athens, Ohio, where three runners earned all-league accolades. Goodridge also had two runners pick up AllRegion honors in Vollmar and then-freshman Ejigu. In 2008, Goodridge captured his fifth MAC title and EMU’s fourth league championship in-a-row. He was named the MAC Coach of the Year for the fifth time in his career and led the Eagles to a seventh place finish at the NCAA Regional for the second straight season. In 2007, Goodridge’s Eagles had another outstanding season, claiming their third straight MAC Championship title, the school’s 13th overall. Additionally, Josh Perrin won the individual MAC title in a time of 24:33. Five of Goodridge’s athletes were selected to All-MAC teams (Perrin, Josh Karanja, David Brent, Vollmar and Kyle Mena), while three were selected Academic All-MAC (Brent, Karanja and Wade Wines). Karanja earned a spot at the NCAA Championship meet after finishing eighth at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional Championship, the best performance by any MAC runner. The 2006 season was a banner year for Goodridge and his harriers. They repeated as MAC Champions and had the lowest point total ever by an Eagle team at the MAC meet. Six Eagles claimed All-MAC honors while senior Corey Nowitzke was the top finisher at both the MAC Championship and the NCAA Great Lakes Regional. He finished 30th overall at the NCAA National Championships and was named an All-American and Academic All- American. In 2005, EMU captured its 11th MAC Championship title. Nowitzke and Neal Naughton finished second and fifth, respectively. The Eagles went on to place fifth at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional Championship to qualify for the NCAA Championship, where they finished 24th, with Nowitzke as the top runner.

2012 marked the eighth time in 12 years at EMU the John Goodridge has been named MAC Coach of the Year. In 2002, after finishing second at the MAC Championship, the Eagles redeemed themselves by finishing third at the NCAA Championship, the highest place ever in school history.

Green, White... And Yellow?

The EMU Eagles’ colors are green and white, but the track and cross country teams both feature yellow on their uniforms. There is a reason these teams stand out, and the history behind it goes back to 1967. EMU great Bob Parks offered some insight to the story behind how the yellow came about. “When I got to EMU in Jan. 1967, the team was wearing dark green singlets and dark green shorts. In that season, we ran a meet at Western Michigan University, and the finish line was beneath the balcony which was very dark. In the hurdle final, there were six men, three from Michigan State and three from EMU. MSU’s uniforms were almost identical to ours. When the finish positions were announced, we got the short end of the stick. You could hardly see the runners under the dark balcony area, and they got the finish wrong. At that point, I decided to get uniforms that showed up better. “Back then, Kansas was a big name in collegiate track, and they wore pink shorts and powder blue singlets with pink lettering. Everyone thought they were great. I decided to copy them and ordered orange shorts and green singlets with white lettering trimmed in orange. We wore them for about four years, but the Regents decided that all of our teams should be wearing green and white. When they made us get rid of the orange and green, I ordered green and gold, colors I had always liked. At first, they weren’t going to let us use them, but I pointed out that our football team was wearing green and gold. Our administration could hardly argue with me, since our gridders were wearing it too. “ “We have worn it ever since, and it is known from coast to coast, as our men have done traditionally well nationally. It also differentiates us from MSU and Ohio University’s color schemes. The green and gold does show up well at the finish line, but nowadays they use computer cameras, so it is less of a problem as it was in the 60s and 70s.”

tions to the team, saying, “Harry has been somewhat ‘snake bitten’ throughout his career with a few leg injuries and untimely illnesses, but he has delivered in every MAC Championship. He has always been the glue that has kept the team together and successful.”

The Green and White must bid adieu to two seniors at the close of the season, each with prolific careers. Harry Dixon and Grzegorz Kalinowski will both continue on to compete in the 2013-14 track and field season, but their years as cross country athletes have come to a halt. The pair of runners garnered AllMAC First Team honors, as Kalinowski finished third in the 2013 MAC Championship race while Dixon followed shortly after with a fifth-place finish.

The squad opened up the 2013 campaign by hosting the EMU Triangular, which included MAC foes Bowling Green State University and the University of Toledo, Aug. 30. EMU won with a commanding 21 points in the effort, highlighted by the 1-2-3 finish by redshirt-junior Ian Hancke, junior Cameron Trinh, and sophomore Austin Lane. The trio finished within a second of each other as Hancke crossed the line at 15:56.20, while Lane swooped in to close out the top three in 15:57.20.

Kalinowski is an athlete that has been plagued by injury during his time at EMU and only ran a total of eight races throughout his career, but Head Coach John Goodridge has nothing but praise for the Torun, Poland native. “Greg is a talented athlete who came to us as a middle distance athlete who may even have been more comfortable in the 800-meter rather than the 1500-meter, but from day one I always believed that the longer distances were where his best potential was,” said Goodridge. “It has taken some time for this to be embraced but at the same time Greg had stress fractures two different years, which eliminated a lot of valuable training time. This past summer he prepared for a serious cross country effort and has made very pleasing training progress throughout the fall. Based on his limited cross country racing experience I think he did a really nice job for us.”

2013 Season Recap

Eastern Michigan University’s men’s cross country team kept up with its tradition of winning ways in the 2013 campaign. Highlighted by a fourthstraight 2013 Mid-American Conference Championship title, the Eagles landed four harriers on the All-MAC teams.

Dixon was perennially an integral part of the foundation that supported the Eagles in their quest for MAC Championship titles, as he placed in the top20 in each of the four conference races that he ran, earning All-MAC Second Team honors twice before being named to the first team in the 2013 campaign. He was also recognized for his work off the course, as he was named to the Academic All-MAC team. Coach Goodridge also commended the Nelson, New Zealand native for his contribu-

Following a two-week break, the Green and White headed down to Bowling Green, Ohio, to race in the Mel Brodt Collegiate Opener, Sept. 13. Once again, Hancke paced the Eagles, finishing third in the 8,000-meter race with a 25:28.33 mark. Lane and Trinh also landed in the top-10, coming in at 25:48.16 and 25:51.93, respectively. October opened up with some staunch competition for the harriers as they traveled to South Bend, Ind. to compete in the Notre Dame Invitational. The race, held on Oct. 4, ended with the Eagles claiming an 18th-place finish with 461 points in the seeded Men’s Blue Race. Dixon was the only top50 finisher in the field that contained nine of the top-40 teams in the nation, as his time of 25:11.2 earned him a 43rd-place finish for the afternoon. A pair of rookies also donned the Green and White for the first times in their EMU careers, as Nick Raymond pulled in a time of 27:09.9 in the Blue Race while John Knox placed fifth in the Open Race with a time of 26:00.2. “John and Nick are going to have fine careers at EMU, which has already started with them as freshmen standing on the victory podium as MAC team champions. Serious thought was given to redshirting them, but I decided that giving them a collegiate racing experience as freshmen

2013 All-MAC First Team Grzegorz Kalinowski was best for their development,” said Coach Goodridge about the young duo. “Likewise, regarding training freshmen, you can either take an aggressive or nonaggressive approach and either way you can often have inconsistent race results. So whereas I chose an aggressive racing approach, I have taken a very low-key nonaggressive approach with their training and fully expect to see solid development with them by next year,” explained Goodridge. “Although last fall Nick was a high school national cross country finalist, his training background was very atypical. He ran very low mileage with little intensity and for four years he swam each winter as opposed to distance running training. I felt that he needed a gradual transition into becoming a full-time distance runner in terms of adjusting to increased volume, intensity, and regularity for the demands of collegiate competition. Likewise, John needs time, but he is adjusting very well. Both are brave racers and when prepared properly will do quite well. Like the rest of the team they were ill and achy at the championship races, and their results there were not indicative of what we will see in the future.” The next week provided some relief in competition, as the squad cruised to a first-place finish at the Michigan Intercollegiate Championships, Oct. 11 in Hillsdale, Mich.

won with 32 points, followed by Big Ten member Michigan State with 75 points to their effort. Knox set the pace for the 8,000-meter run, clocking in at 25:50.54. Hancke, Trinh, Lane, and Raymond followed in at fifth, seventh, ninth, and 10th, respectively. Their performances, along with that of sophomore William Trice, earned them spots on the All-Michigan team. Continuing on with its third race in as many weeks, EMU traveled to Terre Haute, Ind. for the NCAA Pre-National Invitational, Oct. 19. The seeded Men’s Blue Race contained nine top-30 teams, including three in the top-five. The Green andWhite placed ahead of MAC opponents Miami University, the University of Akron, and Central Michigan University with its 40th-place finish. Redshirt junior Warren Witchell was the sole Eagle to land in the top-100, as his time of 24:29.99 was good for 85th in the competitive field. Later in the afternoon, Raymond was the sixth finisher in the Men’s Open Race and the only Eagle in the top-10 of the 100+ athlete race. Regarding Witchell, Coach Goodridge has high expectations for his athlete during his final season next year. “It’s been fun watching Warren develop. He was a soccer player in high school so this is really only his third year of cross country. He was fairly sick the week of the MAC Championship and hadn’t really recovered until the day of regionals. I am confident that we will see continuing development in him.” In the week leading up to the MAC Championship, the Eagles hosted one final meet on Oct. 25, as they came out dominant in the annual EMU Classic. Though the event was not scored, the Eagles were the clear leaders as Kalinowski, Dixon, sophomore Willy Fink, and Witchell grabbed a 1-2-3-4 finish. The meet, according to Goodridge, was “used as a controlled training effort for most of our MAC squad to finish off a good week of training.” Kalinowski’s time of 15:13.8 additionally earned him the distinction of being named MAC Runner of the Week for the period ending Oct. 29. The pinnacle of the 2013 season was surely the 2013 MAC Championship on Nov. 2 as the team returned to a familiar course at BGSU. The pack of EMU runners was neck-and-neck with Akron’s athletes throughout the majority of the 8,000-meter race, but the Eagles managed to get their scoring runners across the finish line ahead of the Zips, taking a fourth-consecutive MAC Championship title with 42 points. Kalinowski and Dixon placed third and fifth, which would earn them All-MAC First Team honors, while Witchell and Fink were named to the second team after finishing eighth and 11th. All five of the scoring runners finished in the top-20, as senior Daryl Smith sprinted in for a 15th-place turnout in the event. With the victory, Goodridge tied legendary EMU Head Coach Bob Parks for most MAC titles with nine championship teams. Additionally, Goodridge, who was coincidentally celebrating his birthday, was awarded the 2013 MAC Coach of the Year award. “Every championship is certainly rewarding and special, but to win one on your birthday and to have your team surprise you in song to celebrate is very special,” said Coach Goodridge. “To add another title to the great EMU tradition is and always will be very rewarding. A championship experience is a lot of fun and seeing the pride on the guys’ faces is very satisfying.” Competition concluded on Nov. 15, when the harriers traveled to Madison,Wisc. for the NCAA Great Lakes Regional meet. The Eagles went up against regional competition that included No. 11-ranked Indiana University and host school the University of Wisconsin, which had won the previous 11 regional titles. The team finished with a 10th-place showing, led by Witchell’s 29th-place time of 31:18 in the 10,000-meter race. Smith, Dixon, Kalinowski, Fink, Knox, and Raymond also participated in the season-capping meet. Though the regional meet meant the end of the season, Coach Goodridge was overall pleased with the effort of his team, commenting, “We haven’t really been at full strength for the past few weeks as every one of our top seven has been bothered by either lingering illness or slight annoying aches, all of which have effected their training and racing. We are actually quite fortunate to have been able to win the conference and run solidly at the regional.”

Mid-American Conference

3030

Providing leadership in education and diversity, the Mid-American Conference moves into its 67th year of service to the student-athlete. Since its inception in 1946, the Mid-American Conference has progressively grown and developed into one of the most aggressive Division I conferences in the country. One of only ten football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) conferences, the MAC named Dr. Jon A. Steinbrecher as its eighth commissioner in March of 2009.

Bob Parks

Bob Parks

HEAD COACH

1967-2000 Record: 134-24-1

In 1967, Lyndon Johnson was President of the United States, U.S. troops were being sent to Vietnam, the Beatles were still taking America by storm and Bob Parks was the new cross country and track coach at Eastern Michigan. After 34 years, a lot of things changed. The U.S. pulled out of Vietnam in 1975, Johnson died in 1973 and the Beatles broke up in 1970, not to mention only two of them are still alive. After 34 years, Parks retired as one of the most successful coaches at EMU. During his career, Eastern Michigan cross country compiled a dual-meet record of 132-24-1 for a .843 winning percentage. EMU was 75-16 (.824) in MAC action and has won nine MAC titles (1973, 1974, 1986, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 2000). The Eagles went undefeated 11 times ( 1970, 1972, 1973, 1979, 1983, 1985, 1986, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994) in dual meet action during his tenure. They competed just as well on a national level. In his first five years, Parks led Eastern to the NAIA and/or NCAA Division II Championship meet every year and won the 1967 and 1970 NAIA National Championship and the 1970 NCAA Division II National title.

04444

After joining the MAC and moving up to the NCAA Division I status in 1972, EMU won two district championships ( 1973, 1974) and qualified for the NCAA Championship meet seven times with the best finish coming in 1974 with a sixth place finish. Parks’ teams qualified for a national championship meet (NAIA, NCAA I, II) nine times in his first 10 years. Eastern also won seven Central Collegiate Conference crowns and nine Michigan Intercollegiate Championships. Parks was named MAC Coach of the Year seven times (1973, 1973, 1986, 1990, 1994, 1998, 2000), was five-time CCC Coach of the Year (1973, 1974, 1985, 1995, 1997) and twice honored as NCAA District Coach of the Year (1973, 1974). The 83-year-old Parks (9-6-30) was born in Pittsburgh, Penn., and grew up in Howell Mich. At Howell High School, he played football, basketball, baseball and track and was the Michigan high School Class B State Champion in the 440-yard dash. He was a three-time letterwinner in track at Michigan Normal College (now EMU), won the 1952 IIAC 880-yard run and was a member of the mile relay team that held the school record for 14 years. He began his coaching career at Ferndale High School in 1952 and also coached at DeWitt High School and Redford Thurston H.S. from 1954-61, until joining the Western Michigan University track and cross country staff as an assistant coach in 1961 where he helped the Broncos to numerous MAC and CCC titles, as well as two NCAA Division I Championships in cross country. Parks left Western Michigan in January 1967, to return to his alma mater as head coach. Parks is married to the former Pat Greene, who is retired from the EMU Chemistry Department. They have four children, Nancy, Susan, Steve and Scott. Sue is the current head coach of the women’s cross country and track and field programs at Eastern, while Scott is the athletic director and head men’s and women’s track and cross country coach at Seminole Ridge High School in Palm Beach County, Fla.

MAC Commissioner Rick Chryst hands Bob Parks his final Coach of the Year award in 2000.

Sophomore James Hughes and Junior Matt Hammersmith also earn All-MAC Second Team honors. At the NCAA Great Lakes Regional, Vollmar led the Eagles with a 17th place finish followed by true freshman Terefe Ejigu, with both runners earning All-Region honors.

2010

The Eagles showcased a stellar 2010 campaign that featured four first place team finishes, most notably a first place MAC Championship performance for the Eagles’ 15th MAC Championship in program history. Terefe Ejugu was first to cross the finish line at 24:08 to become the 18th EMU runner to earn the Individual MAC

Championship, a feat last accomplished by Josh Karanja in 2008. Ejigu’s efforts earned him First Team All-MAC honors, while freshman Harry Dixon picked up second team accolades. John Goodridge was named the MAC Coach of the Year for the sixth time after leading his team to his sixth championship title during his tenure. At the NCAA Great Lakes Regional, Ejigu continued to shine with a 15th place, All-Region performance. The sophomore maintained his position in the top-five from the start of the race, but fell back a few positions in the final 800 meters for a still impressive 30:41.89 finish. Ejigu’s accomplishments would later earn him USTFCCCA All-Academic accolades -- marking only the second time an EMU harrier has ever earned the award. 2011

EMU returned to top form as the Eagles captured their second straight and 16th overall Mid-American Conference Championship. The Eagles were paced by Terefe Ejigu for the second consecutive conference championship, with a second place finish (24:16.0). Joining Ejigu and receiving All-MAC recognition was freshman Daryl Smith, whose strong second half of the season placed him among the best in the conference. The 2011 Eagles collected their sixth championship in seven years dating back to 2005. It was an historic season for Head Coach John Goodridge who was in his 11th year at the helm of the Eagles. The title marked the Eagles’ seventh under the watch of Goodridge, placing him only two behind legendary EMU Head Coach Bob Parks. Goodridge was also named the MAC Coach of the Year for the seventh time, as voted by his peers in the MAC.

2012

The Eagles were able to secure a third consecutive MAC Championship title, scoring 59 points to hold a secure lead over runner-up Central Michigan. Terefe Ejigu finished his senior campaign with another MAC individual title, finishing in 24:44.50 while teammate Daryl Smith completed a 1-2 finish for the Green and White in 24:47.80. Both were named to the All-MAC First Team, while Harry Dixon took home second team honors and John Goodridge was named the MAC Coach of the Year. The team went on to take 13th at the NCAA, despite Ejigu bowing out following the 8K mark due to injury.

2013

Head Coach John Goodridge was able to celebrate his birthday by tying EMU Hall of Fame coach Bob Parks in MAC Championship titles, taking the ninth of his tenure and the 18th in program history with 42 points. Grzegorz Kalinowski and Harry Dixon ended their careers as AllMAC First Team honorees after finishing third and fifth, respectively, while Warren Witchell and Willy Fink were named to the second team. Goodridge also picked up his ninth MAC Coach of the Year award. The team went on to take 10th at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional, with Witchell landing in the top-30 and Daryl Smith, Dixon, Kalinowski, and Fink finishing in the top-100.

Eastern Michigan University Where We’re Located Eastern Michigan University is located in historic Ypsilanti, about 10 miles east of Ann Arbor, 40 miles west of Detroit and just 20 minutes from Detroit Metropolitan Airport. It is an area rich in academic, research, technological and recreational resources. The University also has sites in Livonia, Jackson, Traverse City, Flint, Detroit and Monroe. EMU’s 800 plus-acre campus of scenic flora and wooded areas includes 18 miles of walkways and jogging trails and has 122 buildings throughout the academic and athletic campuses. Eagle Crest – Eastern Michigan’s conference center, golf course and resort – is located on the banks of nearby Ford Lake. Ypsilanti plays a leading role in industry and education. The city and the University have forged close ties that have lasted more than 160 years.

What Makes Us Unique In 1849, the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Michigan formally paved the way for the establishment of Michigan State Normal School, with the exclusive purposes of instructing persons in the art of teaching; providing a good common school education; and giving instruction in the mechanic arts, husbandry, agricultural chemistry and the laws of the United States. Since its inception, Eastern Michigan, first as a Normal School, then as a College and finally as a University, has grown and developed to respond to the ever-changing needs of society. Over the years, EMU has educated thousands of sons and daughters of Michigan, the nation, and the world. The university currently serves 23,000 students who are pursuing undergraduate, graduate, specialist, doctoral and certificate degrees in the arts, sciences and professions. In all, more than 200 majors, minors and concentrations are delivered through the University’s Colleges of Arts and Sciences; Business; Education; Health and Human Services; Technology, and its graduate school. Eastern Michigan’s exceptional faculty, students and alumni include CEOs from major businesses, a National Student Teacher of the Year, National Teacher of the Year, numerous Fulbright Scholars and Milken Family Foundation National Educators award winners, and several Michigan Teachers of the Year. EMU is regularly recognized by national publications for its excellence, diversity, and commitment to applied education.

Faculty/Staff

EMU’s Economic Impact

Eastern Michigan University employs nearly 700 full-time faculty and 1,000 staff members. Ninetyfour percent of EMU professors have doctoral degrees or terminal degrees in their field. The student to faculty ratio is 19:1. Faculty work closely with students, and many involve students in their research. Recently, the University celebrated its 30th annual Undergraduate Symposium; a benchmark program for undergraduate research.

Since its founding in 1849, Eastern Michigan has provided quality services to the residents of Ypsilanti, Washtenaw County, the State of Michigan and other states and nations. EMU’s total impact on the Michigan economy of an estimated $3.7 billion annually reflects a return of more than $42 for each dollar received from the state. The University’s total impact on the Michigan economy results in a contribution of $166 million in state tax revenue. Thus, EMU’s impact on state government tax revenue is $1.87 in taxes for each dollar received from the state.

Community Outreach Eastern Michigan is making an impact nationally by channeling its academic research as a means of solving real world problems. EMU currently has 14 research institutes and centers that focus on community building and civic engagement, quality, community and regional development, small business development, geospatial education, textiles, export assistance and product development. EMU is well-known for merging theory and practice for the benefit of the community. Applied research leads to new knowledge, new jobs and new business. Annually, the university receives about $15 million in revenues for sponsored research and community service activities.

The Alumni Association Representing more than 142,000 alumni and friends, the Alumni Association sponsors social and service-related programs for more than 20 geographically-based and special-interest alumni chapters.

Our History

1897: MSNS is the first U.S. teacher’s college to become a four-year institution.

Founded in 1849, when the state of Michigan was just 12 years old, Michigan State Normal School was designated by the state legislature as the first institution to educate teachers to serve the public schools. The University thus began, somewhat humbly, as the sixth teacher education institution in the nation. A campus that today comprises more than 800 acres was once a four-acre plot with one building and two programs of study – a classical course and an English Course. The school’s name changed several times – to Michigan State Normal College in 1899; to Eastern Michigan College in 1956; and finally to Eastern Michigan University in 1959. During its first 100 years, the institution certified thousands of teachers and developed the broad-based curricula that ultimately prepared it for university status. Within that new university, three colleges emerged: Education, Arts and Sciences and the Graduate School. The University has since expanded three more times, adding the College of Business in 1964, the College of Health and Human Services in 1975, and the College of Technology in 1980. More recently ,Eastern Michigan has developed Extended Programs and numerous community-focused institutes. The university has enhanced its learning environment through structural initiatives during the past several years. Recent construction includes the Terrestrial and Aquatic Research Facility (1998), the Convocation Center (1998), the Bruce T. Halle Library (1998), the John W. Porter College of Education Building (1999), the Everett L. Marshall College of Health and Human Services Building (2000), the Village residence hall (2001), University House (2003), new Student Center (2006), and the new Science Complex (2010).

Ypsilanti is a city in Washtenaw County with a population of 22,362. Originally a trading post established in 1809 by Gabriel Godfroy, a FrenchCanadian fur trader from Montreal, a permanent settlement was established on the east side of the Huron River in 1823 by Major Thomas Woodruff. It was incorporated into the Territory of Michigan as the village Woodruff ’s Grove. A separate community a short distance away on the west side of the river was established in 1825 under the name “Ypsilanti”, after Demetrius Ypsilanti, a hero in the Greek War of Independence. Woodruff ’s Grove changed its name to Ypsilanti in 1829, and the two communities eventually merged. Henry Ford and the automotive industry came to Ypsilanti in the 1930s and beautiful Ford Lake was created to generate hydroelectric power for the manufacturing plants. During World War II, Ypsilanti became home to the Willow Run Bomber Plant, a factory that would employ 100,000 workers.

Rynearson Stadium

Rynearson Stadium begins its 45th season as the home venue for the Eastern Michigan University football and track teams in 2012. Opened in 1969, the facility is named for the late Elton J. Rynearson, Sr., who coached football at Eastern Michigan for 28 seasons. The first game played in Rynearson Stadium was Sept. 27, 1969, when EMU upset the University of Akron, 10-3. The stadium was dedicated a few weeks later on Oct. 25, 1969, when EMU lost, 17-7, to the University of Tampa. More than two million fans have seen EMU play in Rynearson. In 22 of the 44 years, Eastern has averaged more than 11,000 fans per home date. The 1995 season proved to be the record-breaking year for Rynearson Stadium attendance. A single-game record crowd of 25,009 was on hand, Sept. 16, 1996, to watch the Eagles dismantle UNLV, 51-6. That fourgame ‘95 season also proved to be a best for season average attendance of 22,602. Rynearson Stadium is set up for a capacity of 30,200 with the ability to expand for larger crowds. The stadium originally held 15,500, but additional seating and lighting were added in 1974 when the now-defunct Detroit Wheels used the facility for their World Football League games. The additional seating in 1974 brought the capacity to 22,227. During the summer of 1992, seating was added on the east side to bring capacity to the current total of 30,200. Built for an approximate cost of $1.4 million in 1969, Rynearson Stadium underwent a major renovation project in 1991 and 1992, which included installation of a StadiaTurf field, a new team building, an additional 10,000-plus seats, new bathroom facilities and concession stands, an expanded press box and state-of-the-art scoreboard were added at a cost of approximately $13 million. The playing field was originally natural grass. A sand-filled artificial surface, StadiaTurf, was installed in 1991. The StadiaTurf surface was replaced in May 1998, by an AstroTurf artificial surface. A FieldTurf surface was installed in the summer of 2005. The press box is located on the top of the westside stands. A second level was added as part of the renovations in 1991. The working media utilize the lower level while the top level is the University hospitality area for the stadium. The EMU locker room is located in the team building at the north end of the stadium. The visitor’s locker room is located below the stands on the west side of the stadium.

Convocation Center

The Eastern Michigan University Convocation Center, in its 15th season as the crown jewel of EMU athletics, opened up a new era of excitement on the west campus of EMU in the fall of 1998. The state-of-the-art, $29-million facility is the result of a decade-long effort to improve and upgrade University facilities and followed closely the opening of the $41-million Bruce T. Halle Library on the main campus. Construction of the Convocation Center began in the spring of 1997 and culminated with its dedication game, Dec. 9, 1998, with a men’s basketball game against the University of Michigan in front of a crowd of 7,647. Since its opening, the Convocation Center has served as home court for the Eagles’ men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball teams. The EMU wrestling team and women’s gymnastics team have held several meets on the arena floor. The Convocation Center has also served as the site for four Mid-American Conference Championships. EMU hosted the 2000 and 2007 MAC Gymnastics Championship and the 2002 and 2009 MAC Wrestling Championship. The arena has been the host site for seven first-round MAC Women’s Basketball Tournament games, four first-round MAC Volleyball Tournament games and four first-round game for the men’s basketball squad. The building also played the host for the EMU women’s basketball team’s upset of the University of Michigan in the First Round of the 2011 Women’s National Invitational Tournament (WNIT). The Convocation Center also played host to the 2008 WNBA’s Eastern Conference Finals and the WNBA Championship, as the Detroit Shock utilized the facility for the playoffs. Along with their commitment to EMU Athletics, the Convocation Center staff has brought some of the finest entertainers in the world to Ypsilanti. The Convo has hosted concerts by the Black Crowes, Indigo Girls, Godsmack, Smashmouth, Ludacris, Bob Dillion, Toby Keith, Matchbox Twenty, Goo Goo Dolls, Dave Chapelle, John Mayer and Jay-Z. The Convocation Center is also the site for EMU’s spring and winter commencement ceremonies. Among other events that have taken

place include numerous youth sporting competitions, high school commencements, trade shows, job fairs, conventions, charity and community awareness events as well as a circus. The 204,316-square-foot facility features three user-friendly levels — arena, concourse and office — and three seating configurations to maximize crowd capacity and space usage. The largest seating capacity is for center-stage entertainment activities, with 9,500 seats available. The capacity for basketball games is approximately 8,800. EMU’s athletic administration is located on the office level, along with offices for the EMU football, men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball coaching staffs. The EMU Athletic Media Relations Office, as well as offices for the Convocation Center staff, are located on the office level. The main athletic training room and office space for EMU’s sports medicine staff is located on the arena level as are strength and conditioning facilities and equipment rooms. In the summer of 2012, the Convocation Center received a major face-lift, as a YESCO four-sided ceiling hung display sign, featuring video boards on all four sides, was installed above center court in the arena. The fixture features four 10MM full color video boards, with each board’s active area measuring 15.7-foot wide by 11.5-foot tall. In addition, the system also features three ribbon displays on the west and east sides and under the scoreboard. The arena will also showcase an integrated light emitting diode (LED) courtside scorer’s table. There is no doubt that the Convocation Center has become a special place for athletic events, but there is a warm spot in the hearts of Eastern Michigan fans for Bowen Field House, the home for men’s and women’s basketball games for 43 years. Bowen was built in 1955 at a cost of $1.25 million. The facility has 79,529 square feet of floor space and includes an eight-laps-to-the-mile indoor track. An additional 9,394 square feet, along with new permanent seating, a new court and upgrading of the facility was completed in 1982 at a cost of $506,938. Bowen still serves as home to EMU’s track teams and also serves as a practice facility for many of Eastern’s varsity squads.

It has been vantages that other programs have had in the past and is helping wonderful for the University and it is paying for itself.” EMU catch up to other schools.” “Everything has gone very smoothly,” said Mark Monahan, director of the EMU Convocation Center, which oversees the indoor practice facility. “Since January, it has been booked all the time. We have had a ton of youth sports use it.” The indoor practice facility, which cost $3.9 million to build, was inflated during February 2010. The facility is a permanent airsupported structure that is 410 feet long, 210 feet wide, and 75 feet tall; and includes a welcome center (1,100 square feet) and convertible space (86,000 square feet) that can be configured for a football field, an international soccer field, four youth soccer fields or two youth baseball/softball fields. A full-time supervisor and students staff the facility. The facility, located at 150 Westview Drive, is open Monday-Friday, from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Youth soccer, Little League baseball, high school football teams, EMU club sports, recreational groups and six intercollegiate teams have used the facility since it opened last year, said Monahan. The six intercollegiate sports that use the facility are football, baseball, softball, women’s soccer, and men’s and women’s golf. “It’s been fantastic for our league,” said Dave York, soccer manager for Total Sports Complex. “We are able to incorporate more Ann Arbor-based clubs so they don’t have to drive so far to play.” Total Sports Complex runs youth soccer programs — that includes approximately 700 players — in southeastern Michigan and Ohio. Monahan said there has been one challenge for the facility. “Parking has been an issue because business is so good,” he said. The facility has 100 spaces, but the volume associated with its use has led Monahan to request additional parking. Currently, Mo-

The EMU Identity Since the 1991 season, Eastern Michigan University athletic teams have gone by the nickname “Eagles.” The Eagles name was officially adopted on May 22, 1991, when the EMU Board of Regents voted to replace the existing Huron nickname and logo with the new one. EMU originally went by the nicknames “Normalites,”“Men from Ypsi”and various other titles through the years before “Hurons” was adopted in 1929. The “Hurons” first came into being as the result of a contest sponsored by the Men’s Union in 1929. On Oct. 31 of that year, a three-person committee composed of Dr. Clyde Ford, Dr. Elmer Lyman and Professor Bert Peet, selected the name “Hurons” from the many entries in the contest. The name was submitted by two students, Gretchen Borst and George Hanner. Hanner was working at the Huron Hotel at the time of the contest and was no doubt as much influenced by his place of employment as by the Huron Indian tribe. The runner-up name in that contest was Pioneers. EMU began investigating the appropriateness of its Huron Indian logo after the Michigan Department of Civil Rights issued a report in October 1988 suggesting that all schools using such logos drop them. The report indicated that the use of Native American names, logos and mascots for athletic teams promoted racial stereotypes. At that time, four colleges, 62 high schools and 33 junior high/middle schools in Michigan used Native American logos or names. The EMU Board of Regents voted to replace the Huron name with Eagles, taken from three recommendations from a committee charged with supplying a new nickname. The other two final names submitted were Green Hornets and Express.

Eastern Eagles Fight Song

A Look Back at EMU’s Logos

“Eastern Eagles, hats off to you! Fight, fight, fight for ole EMU. Look to the sky, the Eagles will fly, the bravest we’ll defy. ... Rah,rah, rah!”

1929-1991

“Hold that line for ole Green and White. Sons and daughters show your might. So, FIGHT, FIGHT! for ole EMU and vic-tor-y!”

1991-1994

EMU Alma Mater Eastern, sacred Alma Mater to your name we shall be true. Ever marching on to victory, we’ll stand by to see you through, Softly floating on the breeze, verdant green with white of snow, This our banner we will carry in our hearts whe’er we go.

1995-2001

Go Green Go Green, roll up the score. Go Green, let’s get some more. Raise a cheer for old Green and White. Let’s show them we came here to fight. Go Green, vic’try we’ll claim. Go Green, let’s win this game. We’ll always fight for old EMU. Come on and let’s go Green!

NCAA Compliance The Eastern Michigan University Office of Athletics Compliance is committed to a comprehensive compliance program that educates student-athletes, prospective student-athletes, institutional employees, community members and boosters about the importance of adhering to NCAA, Mid-American Conference and institutional rules. The commitment to compliance ensures institutional control over the department of athletics. The existence of a successful compliance program depends on the willingness of coaches, administrators, staff, student-athletes and boosters to be cognizant of NCAA, MAC and institutional rules.

RECRUITING DO'S AND DON'TS Only EMU coaches may be involved in the recruiting process. Boosters may not make any recruiting contacts with prospective studentathletes, Boosters are prohibited from the following: • Do not telephone, write or make in-person contact with a prospect for recruiting purposes • Do not contact a prospect's coach, principal or counselor in an attempt to evaluate the prospect • Do not become involved in making arrangements for a prospect, the prospect's relatives or friends to receive money or financial aid of any kind • Do not visit a prospect's school to acquire films or transcripts in an attempt to evaluate the prospect's academic or athletics eligibility • Do not have contact with a prospect, their relatives or friends during any of their visits to EMU's campus • Do not contact student-athletes enrolled in other four-year institutions regarding the possibility of transferring to EMU Even though there are many rules prohibiting your involvement with prospects and the recruiting process, as a booster you are permitted to do the following: • Notify EMU coaching staff about noteworthy prospects in your area, • Attend a prospect's athletics event on your own initiative, provided no contact with the prospect, the prospect's parents or coach occurs, • Continue existing friendships, provided solicitation of a prospect's enrollment does not occur.

WHAT IS COMPLIANCE? At Eastern Michigan University, the Office of Compliance works within the department of athletics and the University to ensure EMU's compliance with all applicable NCAA, MAC and institutional rules. In doing so, the compliance office is charged with the following tasks: • Educating administrators, coaches, staff, prospective student-athletes, current student-athletes and boosters about NCAA, MAC and institutional rules; • Developing monitoring systems to ensure compliance with NCAA, MAC and institutional rules (e.g., recruiting, academic eligibility, financial aid, awards and benefits, amateurism and agents); • Investigating and reporting violations of NCAA, MAC and institutional rules. ARE YOU A BOOSTER? You are a booster if you are or ever have: • Been a member of a booster organization that supports EMU athletics (e.g., EMU Athletic Club, E-Gridiron Group); • Made any financial contributions to the athletics department; • Been involved in promoting EMU's athletics program; • Been a season ticket holder; or • Provided benefits to enrolled student-athletes or their relatives or friends. You can become a booster if you provide benefits to prospects, student-athletes, their relatives or friends and any of the following statements are true: • The relationship between the athlete (or parents of the athlete) and the individual providing the benefits developed as a result of the athlete's participation in athletics or their reputation as an athlete; • The relationship began only after the athlete become a prospect; • The relationship began only after the athlete had achieved notoriety due to his or her athletic ability or reputation; • The pattern of benefits increased after the athlete attained notoriety as a talented athlete.

ONCE A BOOSTER ALWAYS A BOOSTER. Once an individual is identified as a booster, the person retains that identity forever! This is true even if the individual no longer contributes to, or is involved with, EMU's athletics program. WHO IS A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE? A prospective student-athlete (prospect) is a student who has started classes for the ninth grade, students enrolled in preparatory schools and two-year colleges are also considered prospects. An individual remains a prospect even after he/she signs a National Letter of Intent. WHAT IS AN EXTRA BENEFIT? An extra benefit is any special arrangement by a EMU employee or booster to provide a prospect, student-athlete or their relatives or friends a benefit not expressly authorized by the NCAA. Examples of impermissible benefits include, but are not limited to, the following: • Gifts of cash, clothing, equipment or any other tangible item; • A special discount, payment arrangement or credit on any purchase or service; • Loan of money or co-signing of loans; • A vehicle, use of a vehicle, or any transportation expenses; • Free or reduced-cost services, purchases or rentals; • Entertainment on- or off-campus; or • Free or reduced-cost rent or housing. WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES? EMU is responsible for the actions of its boosters. If a booster provides an impermissible benefit to a prospect, student-athlete, their relatives or friends, EMU may be subject to penalties from the NCAA and Mid-American Conference. When a violation occurs, regardless of intention, it can: • Jeopardize the eligibility of prospective and current student-athletes; • Result in the EMU athletics program being penalized by the NCAA and/or the MidAmerican Conference; and • Cause you to lose benefits or privileges associated with the athletics department (i.e., booster club membership, ticket privileges). QUESTIONS? The above information is a brief overview of compliance and rules pertaining to boosters and their interactions with prospective studentathletes. If you have any questions about any NCAA, MAC or institutional rules, please contact the Christopher Hoppe at 734.487.3263 or choppe3@emich.edu.

Student-Athlete Support Student-Athlete Support Services Academic, personal and professional support are essential to college success. At EMU, Student-Athlete Support Services (SASS) helps student-athletes reach their full potential. Our philosophy is to offer an academic support program, integrated with the University, that will assist all student-athletes with their transition into college. This all-encompassing support continues throughout each student-athlete’s collegiate career, until the day he or she receives a diploma, lands a job or enters graduate school. Being proactive rather than reactive, our staff does not wait for an academic crisis to occur. We gather important background information and build an academic profile on each student-athlete, assessing his or her needs in advance. Services provided through SASS include the following: programs that focus on student-athletes’ special needs, monitoring academic performance, providing learning assistance, assisting with registration procedures, assisting in monitoring athletic eligibility, providing priority registration and making sure that athletes are advised about current NCAA, MAC and university rules and regulations. Freshmen and transfer student-athletes encounter a major transition when making the switch from high school or community college to a university. These students, while adjusting to their new routines, receive extra attention and support. College is not easy. But with hard work and dedication from both the studentathlete and the support staff, the student-athlete can have a successful college experience. The success of Eastern’s student-athletes hinges on their willingness to seek assistance from SASS as well as other university student services. SASS staff members continually refer student-athletes to the Admissions Office, Academic Advising Center, Career Services Center, Health Services, the Records Office, Financial Aid and The Holman Learning Center. Faculty members also provide assistance to student-athletes through advising in course selection and providing additional help with courses when requested.

Athletic Training and Sports Medicine The Eastern Michigan University Sports Medicine Department has a long history and reputation for excellence in the health care of student-athletes and the education of athletic training students. Founding practitioners Gary Strickland, Ron Venis and Dr. Wally Roeser envisioned a goal of first-class prevention, management and rehabilitation of athletic injuries for all student-athletes. Although the department continues to grow, its primary mission remains the same. The student-athletes participating in intercollegiate athletics receive comprehensive health care from an expansive sports medicine team. The Eastern Michigan University Sports Medicine staff is led by Dr. Tara MasterHunter, Dr. Zoe Foster, Dr. David Alvarez, Dr. George Pujalte, Dr. Wally Roeser, Dr. Bruce Miller, Dr. Don Wurtzel and head athletic trainer Steve Nordwall. Additionally, the staff consists of two primary care sports medicine fellows, three full-time staff athletic trainers, two full-time athletic training clinical educators, five graduate assistant athletic trainers and the team dentist. Our sports medicine staff works in conjunction with various medical professionals within the community who provide nutritional, dental, vision and other specialized services for our student-athletes. At Eastern Michigan University, the philosophy of the Sports Medicine staff is two-fold: To provide a high standard of medical care through effective preventive and management programs, and to facilitate an effective post-injury rehabilitation process for a safe return to competition. In all cases, the ultimate well-being of each student-athlete is considered our number one priority, not only while they compete at Eastern Michigan University, but during their lifetime as well. The Sports Medicine staff operates out of three campus athletic training facilities in the Convocation Center, Bowen Field House and the Rynearson Stadium team building.

Sports Performance/Strength and Conditioning Our Sports Performance Program applies a complete approach to scientifically and practically progress each individual athlete. Our purpose is to improve all components that will aid in achieving maximal athletic performance while reducing the occurrence of injury. We incorporate athletic based, free weight, multi-joint, and multi-directional movements which vary from a diverse collection of strength and conditioning disciplines to prepare each athlete for the general and specific demands of their sport. Standards that will be implemented at all times are: Integrity, Attention to Detail, Quality before Quantity, and Execution before Innovation. Assuming quality thought and effort have been put into a sports performance program, all else being equal, the program feels that these three components are usually separating an elite level program from the average. Incorporating Daily Competitions – The ability for athletes to compete in an every day setting is critical to the success of team and individual sports. Anything from team relay’s, to 1 on 1 tug of wars, to using a dumbbell weight heavier than the previous week. I simply make the statement to my teams, “WIN THE DAY.” Work harder – beat your last weeks sets/reps/weight/time, COMPETE! There is competitive nature in all mankind. Sometimes it takes a little extra effort on the coaching end to see it. Fill your team with competitors and your program will take care of itself. Physical and Mental Sport Transfer – Training to the specifics of the sport, and style that the head coaches are teaching is an essential way to succeed at any level. Find out what the sport coaches are looking to achieve and speak their same language. You are an addition to their staff, hop on board and cater your philosophy to their needs. Giving each athlete specific examples of on field/on court experiences where success can either be earned or an opportunity can be lost. Being able to make athlete’s understand the importance of mental toughness that is needed in the weight room and how it transfers over to their sport. The pain, the physical and mental struggles they endure in each training session is setting them up for success for their competitive season. Fight for every rep just as you would for any rebound, blocked shot, interception, or stolen base. Make references back to their closest contests that might have been decided by one play – (or one rep). Positive Influential Environment – Do athletes leave the weight room looking to return for more or dreading the next time they have to mope through one of the most silent hours of their day? Each session, from the minute the first athlete walks in, to the last grueling minute they are dragging out, fill the room with ENERGY!!! Push them through their toughest moments and coach every rep. Show each and every athlete that you care about their progress. Stay vocal, provide positive feedback as well as constructive criticism, play that latest hip-hop track and find a way to create a positive training environment.

Eagles Pride

Eagles Pride provides vital financial support to more than 550 student-athletes at Eastern Michigan University as they strive for excellence on the court and in the classroom. Nearly 1,000 donors generously supported our outstanding scholar-athletes each year. Established in 1994, Eagles Pride (formerly the EMU Athletic Club) raises funds in three key areas for EMU's 21 varsity athletic teams: annual-use operating funds, endowment, and facility related projects. Today, annual-use giving is the most critical area of support needed by the Athletic Department. These contributions directly support the operating budgets of our teams and help provide the most basic needs to our coaches and student-athletes, including comprehensive national recruiting efforts, out of region travel to maintain nationally competitive schedules, equipment such as uniforms, balls, nets, bats, and much more. Gifts to any of our teams, or to the Eagles Pride Fund (which will be used for the most urgent needs of the athletic department), are an investment in the future leaders of the state of Michigan. Join Eagles Pride today and make a difference for EMU Athletics.
