2011 Season Preview

2011 Season Preview

66

In the past 10 seasons, the Eastern Michigan University women’s cross country team has consistently made strides to improve its efforts at the Mid-American Conference Cross Country Championships. A fifth-place finish in 2010 was the best outing since the 2000 campaign, and with a solid returning squad in place, the Eagles will look to look to continue that trend this fall. “The team showed good improvement last year,” said Head Coach Sue Parks. “We hope to take another step forward this fall. Although we have a relatively small team, I feel that we have more quality and depth than we have had in all my years here. A big key for us will be closing up our 1-5 gap. We will have to do that to be

successful this season.” The most notable returning member that should contribute toward that quality and depth is First Team All-MAC selection, junior Courtney Calka (Livonia, Mich.-Stevenson). The Livonia, Mich. native is coming off of a notable 2010 campaign, where she placed fifth at the MAC Championships and later earned All-Region accolades after pacing the Green and White at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional in Terre Haute, Ind. Calka was the top EMU finisher in each of her seven races which included three first-place finishes. She also set a new Pine View Golf Club 6,000-meter course record of 20:48.20 at the George Dales Invitational last season.


season, while Elcock ran unattached at the EMU Classic. Elcock redshirted last cross country season after undergoing knee surgery, but the senior showed promise during the outdoor track season this spring. The Ft. Wayne, Ind. native qualified as the No. 40 seed at the NCAA East Preliminaries with her 2:08.22 800-meter time earlier that season. The senior also posted a second-place performance in the 800meter run at the Indoor MAC Track and Field Championships. “Elcock’s return to the team could be a huge boost,” said Parks, “as she finished 22nd in the MAC meet in 2010.” Redshirt freshman Brooke Sciullo (Dublin, Ohio-Dublin Coffman) will be joined by newcomers Mary Smock (Wyandotte, Mich.-Roosevelt) and Victoria Voronko (Moscow, RussiaUniversity of Moscow). Voronko journeys to Ypsilanti from Russia and brings with her a considerable résumé according to Parks. “Voronko comes to EMU from Russia

2011 Season Preview

“Calka had some spectacular performances last season,” said Parks. “We look for her to prove that she is one of the top runners in both the MAC and Great Lakes Region.” Also returning for the Eagles is 2010 Academic All-MAC honoree, Rachel Quaintance (White Lake, Mich.-Walled Lake Northern). Quaintance competed in seven races for the Green and White in last season, including a 33rd-place, career-best 22:15.3 finish at the MAC Championships. Morgan Churchwell (Ada, Mich.-Forest Hills Central) was the second member of the Eagles squad to cross the finish line at the 2010 MAC Cross Country Championships last season, and will return as part of the Green and White’s large junior class this fall. Cassie Coffman (Chelsea, Mich.-Chelsea) and Amber Hutson (Jerome, Mich.-Hanover Horton) will run alongside Churchwell and Quaintance in 2011, and Parks is excited to see how they will perform this season. “Churchwell, Coffman, Quaintance, and Hutson have all worked very hard over the last year,” said Parks. “They have all shown great improvement.” Tiffany Kincaid (Clarkston, Mich.- Clarkston) and Lauren Lunsford (Miamisburg, OhioMiamisburg) will round out the junior class and are expected to be solid contributors this season. Seniors Natalie Webb (Allen Park, Mich.-Woodhaven) and Beverly Elcock (Ft. Wayne, Ind.-Northrop) enter their final season for the Eagles. Webb competed in seven races last

with some great marks” said Parks. “She could also be a big key to the success of the team.” With several members of the returning squad coming off successful track seasons, the Eagles should be in a prime position to make noise at the MAC Championships this fall. “A number of the women improved dramatically during the track season,” said Parks. “We hope to carry that over to some breakthrough performances this fall.” The 2011 campaign will feature tours through Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana and will also include a handful of new opponents for the Green and White. “We have some new meets on the schedule,” said Parks. “I feel that it is a good combination of races against MidAmerican Conference teams and also national level teams. “ The Eagles will kick off 2011 in Toledo, Ohio at the Rocket Open that will be hosted by last year’s MAC Cross Country Champions, Toledo. For the third consecutive season, EMU will journey to Three Rivers, Mich. for the George Dales Invitational — a meet where the Eagles claimed victory just a season ago. On Sept. 23, the Green and White will return to Toledo for the Bubble Buster which will feature a slew of NCAA qualifiers and several near qualifiers from last season, including Arkansas, Baylor, Columbia, Iowa, Ohio State, San Francisco and West Virginia. The Eagles are then slated to make their debut in the Greater Louisville Classic

in Louisville, Ky. Last year, the national event drew in 35 teams from around the country and featured over 300 athletes. After a short stint in Louisville, EMU will head to Muncie, Ind. for the Ball State Invitational on Oct. 14, while several members of the EMU squad will compete in the Pre-NCAA Meet in Terre Haute, Ind. on Oct. 16. A week later, the Eagles will travel to Hudson Mills Metropark for their annual EMU Classic. Last year, several EMU runners for both the men’s and women’s squads performed well in the field in both the 5,000-meter and 9,000-meter events. On Oct. 29, the Green and White will head to Muncie, Ind. for the 2011 MAC Cross Country Championships. Even though the Eagles placed fifth last season, they have consistently made strides since the 2007 campaign and the team will look to continue to improve this fall. “The team made good progress last year,” said Parks. “We hope to continue that trend this coming fall. It will be exciting to see how the team develops over the course of the season.” After EMU competes at the MAC Championships, the Eagles will close out the 2011 season at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional on Nov. 12 and finally at the NCAA Championships on Nov. 21.

Her UA women’s cross country squads placed 11th, 14th, and 12th in the NCAA Championships in 1991, 1992 and 1993 respectively and her 1993 cross country team won the NCAA District 8 championship.

was a state of Michigan high school champion and former record holder in the 800 meters and also competed on U.S. teams in the Pan American Games. Parks went on to graduate from EMU with a bachelor’s degree in 1980 and a master’s degree in 1988.

2010 SEASON RECAP

After finishing sixth at the 2009 Mid-American Conference Cross Country Championships, the Eastern Michigan University women’s cross country team entered the 2010 season with hopes of continuing to climb toward the top of the conference. Selected to finish fifth overall in the MAC Preseason poll, the Eagles would kickoff their campaign at the Michigan Open in Dexter, Mich. Then-sophomore Courtney Calka took first at the 5,000-meter event, posting a field-best 17:42.0 finish time. Morgan Churchwell placed 10th and was the second member of the Eagles to complete the event in 18:59.25, while teammates Natalie Webb and Tiffany Kincaid took 13th and 14th place, respectively. After taking a week off from competition, the Green and White ventured to Three Rivers, Mich. for the George Dales Invitational hosted by Western Michigan University. The Eagles collaborated for a first place finish at the 6,000-meter event, paced by Calka’s first place, Pine View Golf Club course record time of 20:48.20. Churchwell finished at 22:08.3, good for a third place finish, while Kincaid took fifth (22:33.5), and Rachel Quaintance claimed sixth place at (22:36.3). On Oct. 2, the Eagles headed to Madison, Wisc. to compete in the prestigious Adidas Invitational hosted by the University of Wisconsin. As a team, EMU placed 16th in a tough 20-field that included several top-30 ranked opponents. For the third consecutive race, Calka led the way for the Green and White taking 10th in a field of 202 athletes in 20:31.00. Quaintance was the next EMU runner to cross the finish line in the middle of the pack at 22:27, followed by teammates Webb and Kincaid who earned times of 22:30 and 22:33, respectively. At the Michigan Intercollegiate, Calka posted her third first-place finish of the season after completing the

22

5,000-meter course in a career best 17:16.0 time. Her efforts led to a MAC Runner of the Week honor, representing the first of the season and the second of her young career. Webb recorded her best time of the season and was the next EMU runner to finish at 18:36.1 in for ninth place. She was followed by Quaintance who placed 23rd with a time of 19:04.1. Cassie Coffman and Kincaid finished 32nd and 34th respectively, rounding out the top 35 in a field of 224 runners. The Eagles then traveled to University Park, Pa. to take part in the Penn State National Invitational. Calka continued to impress with her seventh place, 20:52 finish in a considerable field of 304 athletes that included some of the best talent in the country. Churchwell was the next runner for EMU to cross the finish line, taking 70th with a time of 22:22. The Green and White then hosted their annual EMU Classic on Oct. 23 in Dexter, Mich. In the women’s 5,000-meter event, senior Beverly Elcock ran unattached as she worked on her comeback from knee surgery, finishing 43rd with a time of 19:32.9. Teammates Lauren and Brooke Scuillo took 62nd (20:08.1) and 77th (20:51.1), respectively. A week later, the women’s cross country squad arrived at the MAC Championships in Three Rivers, Mich. The Eagles raced to a fifth place finish to improve one spot from last year’s sixth place efforts. Toledo brought home the title with 44 points, while Central Michigan placed second with 67 points. Miami finished third with 69 points and was followed by Ohio (fourth, 89 points). Rounding out the field were Eastern Michigan (fifth, 157 points), Western Michigan (sixth, 159 points), Akron (seventh, 187 points), Bowling Green(eighth, 235 points), Kent State (ninth, 254 points), Ball State (10th, 274 points),

Buffalo (11th, 276 points) and Northern Illinois (12th, 323 points). Calka led the Eagles with a fifth place overall finish this afternoon. Her time of 21:03.9 also helped earn her first team All-MAC accolades, marking the second time in her career that she has received this honor. Churchwell was the next to finish for the Green and White, taking 31st after posting a time of 22:06.6. She was followed by teammate Rachel Quaintance in 33rd place with a time of 22:15.3. Kincaid crossed the finish line at 22:39.6 for 42nd place, while Coffman and Lauren Quaintance finished 46th and 53rd, respectively. Calka and Quaintance would later pick up Academic All-MAC honors for the accomplishments both on the course and in the classroom. Calka later earned All-Region accolades after pacing the Green and White with a 21st place finish. She maintained a mile average pace of 5:44.1 en route to a 21:22.79 total time at the Katke-Cousins Golf Course in Rochester, Mich.

The Eagles Fly North For Pre-Season Training The Eastern Michigan University women’s cross country team headed up to Petoskey, Mich. to prepare for the 2011 season. On August 24, the team made the five-day excursion for camp, which was sponsored in part from funds donated by former EMU men’s distance runner, Dan McClory. The squad trained on the Little Traverse Wheelway and the limestone lined North Central State Trail. The Green and White also participated in some challenging team bonding activities at the Camp Adventure Center.

Eastern Michigan University Where We’re Located

Eastern Michigan University is located in historic Ypsilanti, seven 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 main 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. Recently named “A Cool City,” by Michigan’s Governor Jennifer Granholm, Ypsilanti plays a leading role in industry and education. The city and the University have forged close ties that have lasted 160 years.

What Makes Us Unique

In 1849, with the passage of Act No. 138, 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 nearly 22,000 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.

Enrollment Profile

With nearly 23,000 students, EMU provides a rich learning environment for the university community. The University currently has approximately 17,000 undergraduates and 5,000 graduate students. Our students represent 45 states and 93 foreign countries. Of undergraduate students, 69 percent are full time and 60 percent are women. The most popular majors are education, business, social sciences and history, science and engineering, English, and the health professions. EMU’s population is approximately 70 percent white; 16 percent black; 3 percent international; 6 percent undeclared; 2.5 percent Asian-American; 2 percent Hispanic and 0.5 percent Native-American. Eastern Michigan offers a number of special academic programs to help students succeed. These include the Honors College; the Holman Learning Center; distance learning; accelerated format programs; online, weekend and evening programs and courses; American Humanics certification; the World College Study Abroad Tours; a specialized master’s degree program for corporations offered on site; a double master’s degree; online technologies for education and training through the Centers for Corporate Training; and EMU Worldwide. With more than 200 academic and social organizations, an extensive intramural sports program, 21 NCAA Division I-A sports and numerous cultural activities from which to choose, EMU students have diverse opportunities to become involved in campus life. Students’ on-campus housing choices range from traditional dormitory-style rooms to apartments and include living/learning center options.

Faculty/Staff

Eastern Michigan University employs 689 full-time faculty and 1,100 staff members. Ninety-four 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. In 2009, the University celebrated its 29th annual Undergraduate Symposium; a benchmark program for undergraduate research.

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.

EMU’s Economic Impact

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 billion annually reflects a return of more than $30 for each dollar received from the state. The University’s total impact on the Michigan economy results in a contribution of $115 million in state tax revenue. Thus, EMU’s impact on state government tax revenue is $1.25 in taxes for each dollar received from the state.


Education First Mission Statement

Eastern Michigan University is committed to excellence in teaching through traditional and innovative approaches, the extension of knowledge through basic and applied research, and creative and artistic expression.

We extend our commitment beyond the campus boundaries to the wider community through service initiatives, and public and private partnerships of mutual interest addressing local, regional, national and international opportunities and challenges.

Our History

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 has 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 that include Continuing Education, the Centers for Corporate Training, the World College 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) and the Student Center (2006).

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.

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. 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. For more information on compliance and boosters, please visit the Office of Athletic Compliance's website at: EMUEagles.com/compliance


EMU Athletic Club

Supporting EMU StudentAthletes Since 1994 The EMU Athletic Club 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, 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 for Excellence 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 the EMU Athletic Club today and make a difference for EMU Athletics.
