2013 Men’s Preview In addition to claiming its sixth consecutive conference crown, the Embry-Riddle men’s track and field team finished 16th and 24th at the NAIA indoor and Outdoor National Championships, respectively. The Eagles and Head Coach Mike Rosolino have reloaded and are ready to improve on those results as they head into the 2013 season. The 2013 season will see a large number of new faces with 17 new athletes added to the roster. They will have plenty of veterans to learn from as the Eagles have 10 seniors returning on the men’s side that will provide the leadership necessary for this year’s team to defend its conference title as well as improve on last year’s performances at the NAIA National Championships.

Sprints

Four-time All-American senior Leon Robinson will be the leader for the men’s sprinters this season. Robinson is coming off a 2012 campaign in which he broke four school records (Indoors: 6.9-60m, 21.33-200m; Outdoors: 10.43-100m, 21.21-200m) and earned his fourth All-American honor with a fifth-place indoor finish in the 200m. “Leon is where it all starts in the sprints,” stated Rosolino. “He’s a senior this year so he takes over that leadership role and is someone we will be leaning on a lot this year to bring the younger guys along and to be a consistent performer in all of his disciplines.” Senior Bryan Ray has been to nationals the past three seasons and should make his fourth trip this year. Ray was a part of the 4x400m indoor relay team that won the event at the ERAU Indoor/Outdoor Challenge last season as well as the 4x100m outdoor relay that won the Embry-Riddle Spikes Classic. Ray competed at nationals in the 200m and 4x400m indoors and the 4x100m and 200m outdoors. Coach Rosolino is looking for Ray to step up and earn some points at the national level.

ROBINSON

The anchor of the 4x400m relay team, Brian Laing is the leader of the 400m group. He is coming off an injury last season and should be a solid contributor in the sprints. Jean Frenot, a junior college transfer, will also run the 400m and 600m indoors while contributing in the hurdles outdoors. He has already hit a national qualifying standard at the Blue and Gold intrasquad meet on Dec. 6. The 4x100m relay team, led by Robinson and Ray, is coming off a 2012 season in which they made a run at nationals but were derailed

2

by injuries. If everyone stays healthy, Rosolino expects the relay team to easily make it back to the national stage. Laing, Frenot and Alex Dori will be major players in the 4x400m relay team that had a solid year last season, coming up one second shy of the finals at nationals.

Hurdles

Dori was a surprise last season as he was a walk-on that was a part of the 4x400m national qualifying team. He also won the 400m hurdles at the Sun Conference Championships last season. He’ll have company this season as newcomer Frenot is expected to compete along side Dori in the 400m hurdles. “Dori and Frenot should make the 400m hurdles a strength this season,” stated Rosolino. “We’ve had an All-American hurdler for seven consecutive seasons, so there’s a little pressure on these guys to keep the tradition.” Others to watch in the hurdles are Zane Zeigler and Jonathan Hemingway.

HARTER Sophomore Jacob Dordick will be chasing the marathon this season after just missing the qualification times last year. He hit the “B” standard in the fall. Others to watch in the distance events are Joshua Guerrero and Jason Riggs.

Field Events

HERNANDEZ Middle Distance

Alec Hernandez and Joe Fuller return from a surprising 4x800m relay team that finished fourth and earned All-American honors at outdoor nationals in 2012. Jamin Mays is a newcomer who had a strong cross country season, finishing 17th at the Sun Conference Championship, and should translate to a solid middle distance competitor for the Eagles. The fourth member of the 4x800m team has yet to be determined as Rosolino is searching for one of several other middle distance runners to step up, including Jonathan Brasch, Dalton L’Heureux and Palmer Lintz. “I expect we’ll have a 4x800m relay team at nationals,” claimed Rosolino. “We just need someone to fill that fourth spot. I see a number of our athletes making individual appearances at nationals as well.”

Distance

The Eagle men will be looking to newcomers Vincent Bett and Ryan Larson to fill in the void left by eight-time All-American Evans Kirwa. Bett is a transfer from Middle Tennessee State who Rosolino believes will compete at nationals in the steeplechase. He had a solid cross country season and will look to build on that success. Larson is a freshman who excelled during the cross country season and should have a solid year on the track.

The strength of the men’s field events is in the pole vault. Senior Adam Holdsworth returns after earning All-America honors with a seventh-place finish at outdoor nationals. Another senior, Chris Harter was a 2010 AllAmerican and will also be vaulting this season, giving the Eagles the experience to challenge at the national level. Add three underclassmen in transfer Kameron Turner, sophomore Maxwell Breier and freshmen A.J. Bales and the men have five vaulters who will be right at, if not above, the qualifying height, making this the deepest event for the men. Mike Edwards, a transfer from the University of Louisville, should contend for a national title in the high jump, as his jumps last season were well above the NAIA’s top mark. “We are expecting huge things from Mike this season,” said Rosolino. “He was at the British trials last season and is a big addition to our roster.” Another strong event for the Eagle men is the javelin, which will be anchored by Peter Benoit and Turner. Turner hit qualifying standards last year before transferring to ERAU from Orange Coast College, while Benoit just missed the “B” qualifying standard last season. “They should both get to the national meet and hopefully one of them will garner some points,” stated Rosolino.

Multi-Events

Makynzee Balucas and Michael Campobasso are decathletes with differing specialties who Rosolino is excited to see compete. Balucas specializes in the pole vault and middle distances, while Campobasso is a hurdler and sprinter. After a disappointing showing at nationals last season, mostly do to injury, Rosolino hopes the team’s fortunes turn this year and that the newcomers can provide the boost the team needs to win a national championship. “We are always flirting with that fine line between maximum training and injury,” said Rosolino. “We have athletes in every event that can get to nationals; it’s just a matter of how much we can score.”

2013 Embry-Riddle Track and Field


2013 Women’s Preview In 2012, the Embry-Riddle women’s track and field team finished fourth at both the NAIA indoor and Outdoor National Championships and claimed its fourth consecutive conference crown. The Eagles and Head Coach Mike Rosolino have reloaded and are ready to improve on those results as they head into the 2013 season. The 2013 team returns two national champions in Reta Woodard and Nicole Bonk, as well as several All-Americans from last year’s roster. That returning experience combined with little turnover have the Eagles poised to make a run at their fifth conference crown as well as their first National Championship.

Sprints

The key returner for the women’s sprinters is Kristina Kendrick, a junior who was an All-American in the 600m at the indoor championships, before missing the outdoor season due to injury. Kendrick will be the anchor of the group and the leader of the 4x400m relay team. Junior college transfer Kandice Dixon looks to be a big piece of the puzzle this year, having hit the NAIA “A” standard in the 100m at Chattahoochee Tech last year. Freshman newcomer Camaria Cannon will be asked to step up and be a part of both the 4x100m and 4x400m relay teams.

in the middle distance group. The 2012 fourtime All-American will be leaned on to score at nationals and fill the shoes of 2012 five-time All-American Ellie Staker who is utilizing a redshirt this season. Other runners that will be asked to step up this season are seniors Holly Sandon and Kira Ball and sophomore Lauren Eschbach.

Distance

Bailey Eaton and Aleiyah Ross are the returners that will anchor the distance events for the Eagles. Ross is coming off a 2012 season where she was a national qualifier in the marathon, while Eaton had a stellar cross country season that Rosolino hopes will contribute to a solid year on the track.

“Reta had a great year last year and looks to be better this season,” observed Rosolino. “In order to be competitive at the national level you have to have four or five athletes that can carry you. We will be depending on Woodard, Bonk, Kendrick and Coelho. “

Jumps

BONK

Hurdles

Middle Distance

Senior Karina Coelho returns as the leader

Two-time 2012 Race Walk National Champion Bonk returns for her senior season. Bonk won both the indoor 3000m and outdoor 5000m National Race Walk titles last season and competed at the 2012 Olympic trials. “Bonk is a key to our points scoring at nationals,” said Rosolino. “Hopefully she can repeat this year and continue her success for not just the team, but for the country as well.”

Throws

Woodard is coming off an incredible 2012 in which she was a two-time All-American and the NAIA Indoor weight throw national champion. The junior from Spring Hill, Fla., has shown that she is stronger than last year, throwing her furthest ever at the Blue and Gold meet in the fall.

2013 Indoor Schedule

Senior Ange Durston-Ryan and newcomer Evanna Ramirez will be asked to carry the load for the Eagles in the jumps. Last season, Durston-Ryan placed second in the high jump at the Sun Conference Championship, while placing fifth in the triple jump. “We need Ange and Evanna to step up and excel for us this season,” said Rosolino. “We are looking for them to score at the conference meet and help us win our fifth straight title.” With the loss of Bardge and Staker, the Eagle women need to have several athletes step up and have their best seasons. Rosolino knows it will be tough, but believes in the talent that he has. “Replacing somebody like Crystal is going to be really difficult,” stated Rosolino. “With Ellie sitting out as well that’s a significant amount of points we lost. Last year, we didn’t have Crystal indoors and we were the fourth best team in the country and out of those who scored, the only one we lose is Ellie. Hopefully we have some athletes step up and we can remain at the top. Outdoors we lose Crystal, but we gain Kristina, so we should balance some of that out. Hopefully we continue to develop and can remain near the top in the country.”

Senior Breanna Goring will look to fill the shoes of three-time NAIA national champion and 2012 graduate Crystal Bardge. Goring has qualified for nationals the past two years in the hurdles and made the semifinals in the 100m hurdles last season. “Breanna has been in Crystal’s shadow the past few years,” said Rosolino. “In addition to being a good hurdler, she’s a great team player. She was part of the 4x100m and 4x400m teams last season and has done everything we ask of her.” Freshman Martina Tafoya will compete in the 400m hurdles outdoors and middle distance indoors. The Crystal River, Fla. native had a solid cross country season and should produce for the Eagles on the track. “Martina’s solid performance in cross country has us encouraged about what she can contribute on the track,” stated Rosolino.

Mike ROSOLINO

Ninth Season Rhodes College (1996)

Head Coach Mike Rosolino enters his ninth year as the head coach of the EmbryRiddle track and field team and recently finished his 11th year with the cross country program as head coach. Rosolino has coached the track and field team since it’s inception in 2005. Over the last eight seasons with the track and field team, Rosolino has led the men to six conference championships and the women to four league titles. He has coached numerous conference champions, 99 All-Americans and Embry-Riddle’s five National Champions: Beth McCubbin (1000m twice), Crystal Bardge (60m hurdles, 100m hurdles twice), Nicole Bonk (3000m race walk, 5000m race walk), Reta Woodard (weight throw) and Sam Vazquez (1000m). In his first year (2005), Embry-Riddle participated in its first Florida Sun Conference/Region XIV meet where the men’s and women’s teams both finished second in the conference and fourth and sixth, respectively, overall. He sent two runners to compete at the NAIA National Championships, a first in school history. The following year was a great year for Rosolino as he sent runners to both the NAIA Indoor and Outdoor National Championships and came back with two All-Americans. On the national stage, his team was awarded the Buffalo Funds Five Star Award, honoring a team who embraces the five core character values of the NAIA. In 2007, the Eagle men earned their first conference championship under Rosolino and he was named the men’s conference Coach of the Year. The 2008 campaign was a great success as the men’s team repeated as Sun Conference Champions and Rosolino repeated as the conference Coach of the Year on the men’s side. In 2009, the men’s team clinched its third consecutive Sun Conference crown and the women’s team earned its first Sun Conference title. Rosolino was named the Sun Conference Coach of the Year for both the men and women. The 2010 season saw both the men’s and women’s squads add another conference championship to the trophy case, giving the men four straight titles while the women won their second consecutive championship. The 2011 season saw the Eagles and Coach Rosolino garner three individual national titles, one more than the program had in the previous six seasons combined, while the men’s and women’s teams each captured conference titles and both placed in the top 12 at the NAIA indoor and outdoor national championships. The 2012 team added four more national champions as both squads continued to dominate the Sun Conference as each won another title and the women placed in the top five in both the NAIA indoor and outdoor national championships. Over the last 11 cross country seasons, Rosolino has led the cross country teams to seven first place finishes for the men’s team and six for the women. In 2005, the Embry-Riddle men’s team captured the program’s first league and regional titles and made their first team appearance at the NAIA National Championships. A year later, Rosolino’s harriers repeated that performance and were joined by the ERAU women who claimed their first regional and conference crowns. In 2007, both the men’s and women’s squads retained their crowns and Rosolino was named the Florida Sun Conference and NAIA Region XIV Coach of the Year. The 2008 season saw Rosolino named The Sun Conference Coach of the Year for both the men’s and women’s squads for the fifth and fourth consecutive years, respectively, after leading Embry-Riddle

to first-place finishes in The Sun Conference. In 2009, the men and women harriers both reigned victorious at The Sun Conference Championship, as they were both honored as TSC Champions. Their performance at the national level was the best in the history of the program, as the men finished fifth and the women finished 16th. In 2010, both the men and women once again claimed conference championships, and at the NAIA National Championships each team finished 23rd overall. The 2011 season saw both sqauds capture conference titles, the seventh straight for the men and the sixth consecutive for the women. At the national level, the women placed 24th overall and the men finished 28th. In 2012 both squads continued to win at the conference championships, capturing the eighth straight title for the men and the seventh consecutive title for the women. At the national championships, the women placed 22nd overall and the men finished 24th. Along with training top-of-the-line athletes, Rosolino sets the highest standards for his athletes in the classroom. In the past seven seasons, he has coached 82 All-Conference Scholar Athletes. A long-time veteran of the sport, Rosolino came to Embry-Riddle from Presbyterian College in Clinton, S.C., where he spent two years on the coaching staff for the Blue Hose. He began his stint at PC as an assistant coach and was elevated to the head job after just six months. Despite the brevity of his tenure with the program, Rosolino guided the Blue Hose to their best finishes in school history, producing two South Atlantic Conference Runners of the Year and a Freshman of the Year in the process. Rosolino’s teams were equally as successful off the field. Four student-athletes earned Academic All-American status under his watchful eye, while both squads earned Academic All-America Team accolades. Prior to earning his position within the Presbyterian athletic department, Rosolino spent four academic years (1997-01) as the Director of Residence Life in Clinton. He also served as Resident Director for one year (1996-97) while attending graduate school. A former standout runner for Rhodes College in Memphis, Tenn., Rosolino helped the Lynx to three Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) cross country titles from 1993-95. In his final season, he assumed the role of team captain and finished 11th overall at the SCAC Championship meet. Rosolino also ran two seasons for the Rhodes track team, competing in the middle to long distance races. In 1995, he finished fifth at the SCAC Championships in the steeplechase. An Academic All-American for Rhodes in 1994 and 1995, Rosolino was a National Merit finalist and earned distinction as a National Science Scholar. Rosolino earned his bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Rhodes in 1996. He went on to receive his Master of Education degree from the University of South Carolina in 1998 with an emphasis on student personnel services. He also graduated from Loyola College in New Orleans in 2009 with a Master of Pastoral Studies, and is currently pursuing a third master’s degree in Theology from Saint Leo University. Rosolino also holds a Level II certification from USA Track and Field. . Rosolino and his wife Carrie have been married for 14 years and reside in Port Orange with daughter Lynnlee and son Tanner.

Individually speaking, student-athletes from The Sun Conference have proven themselves worthy of national recognition year after year. In 2010-11 alone, 68 student-athletes from the league were named NAIA All-Americans, while 96 TSC athletes were also named DaktronicsNAIA Scholar Athletes. The roots of The Sun Conference date back to 1990 when the league was originally formed as the Florida Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Original membership consisted of Embry-Riddle, Flagler, Florida Memorial, Nova (now Nova Southeastern), Palm Beach Atlantic, St. Thomas, Webber International and Warner Southern. The name “Florida Sun Conference” was adopted in 1992. The league grew to nine members with the addition of Northwood in 1994. Between 2002 and 2006, Nova Southeastern, Palm Beach Atlantic and Flagler moved to NCAA II, but the league was able to recruit new members as Savannah College of Art and Design joined in 2004 followed by Edward Waters in 2006. With the addition of the University of South Carolina at Beaufort, Johnson & Wales, Southeastern, Ave Maria and Thomas (Ga.), along with Edward Waters’ move to the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference, the league membership now stands at 12 schools.

The Sun Conference, formerly the Florida Sun Conference, is heading into its 22nd season of competition and continues to be one of the most successful intercollegiate athletic conferences in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. Under the guidance of Commissioner Mark Pope (2011-present), the league sponsors championships in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s track and field, and women’s volleyball. Sun Conference teams are perennial contenders for national titles. In 2011-12, 31 teams made national tournament appearances. The Northwood men’s basketball team, the SCAD Savannah women’s golf team and Embry-Riddle’s women’s tennis team each finished as runnerup in their respective national tournaments. Additionally, the league racked up numerous individual national titles as Embry-Riddle’s Chris Freeman and Patrick Besch and Adrian Bayh won the ITA/NAIA National singles and doubles titles respectively, while the Eagles’ Reta Woodard, Nicole Bonk and Crystal Bardge won national titles in track and field.

2011: Year in Review WWW.ERAUATHLETICS.COM

INDOOR SCHOOL RECORDS During the course of the indoor season, the Eagles broke 17 school records, including five at the NAIA Indoor National Championships. The women established eight records while the men set nine ERAU standards. Reta Woodard established herself as the best weight thrower in school history, breaking the old school record at the ERAU Challenge (Jan. 28) and then breaking her own record three more times during the season. She saved her best for last, tossing a record-breaking distance of 18.50m at the national meet, which also won her a national championship in the event. Nicole Bonk also broke a record more than once, setting a new mark in the 3000m Race Walk at the ERAU Challenge (Jan. 28) only to improve on that time by more than 12 seconds at the national meet. Bonk’s record-setting time of 14:41.95 was also more than good enough to win the national championship in the event, as she finished more than 36 seconds ahead of the runner-up. Ellie Staker made an indelible STAKER mark on the Embry-Riddle record books in 2013, breaking records in three different events. She set a new school standard in the 1000m at the Tiger Paw Invitational (Feb.11) with a time of 2:53.69, which was also a facility record at the Clemson Indoor Track & Field Complex. At the NAIA Indoor National Championships, Staker ran on a pair of relay teams that each set school records: the 4x400m team (3:53.19) that included Kristina Kendrick, Breanna Goring and Beatrice Enckell and the All-American 4x800m team (9:15.26) that including Baleigh Hyatt, Karina Coelho and Julie Mayfield. In addition to running on the record-setting 4x400m relay team, Kristina Kendrick also broke the school record in the 600m, running a 1:33.63 at the national meet to finish third and earn All-America status. The Eagle women set two other records in field events, including a 1.54m high jump by Ange Durston-Ryan at the Gator Invitational (Jan. 22) and an 11.56m shot put by Destini Oglesby at the ERAU Challenge (Jan. 28) The men’s team started breaking school records at the first meet of the season and continued to do so throughout the indoor calendar, establishing at least one new Embry-Riddle record at all six meets. Adam Szablowski’s 13.06m shot put and Jeff McClary’s 6.48 55m each set records at the Jimmy Carnes Invitational (Jan. 14). The following week, Evans Kirwa broke the 3000m record with an 8:22.92 at the Gator Invitational (Jan. 22). At the ERAU Challenge on Jan. 28, Leon Robinson (6.87, 60m), Reagan Beal (49.61, 400m) and Adam Holdsworth (4.90m, pole vault) each broke school records. Alec Hernandez established a 1000m record with a 2:33.35 at the Tiger Paw Invitational (Feb. 10), while Kirwa set his second record of the season with a 4:11.61 mile at the ERAU Last Chance Meet (Feb. 18). Robinson broke another record at the NAIA Indoor National Championships (Mar. 2), earning All-America status with a fifth-place time of 21.39 in the 200m.

OUTDOOR SCHOOL RECORDS The outdoor season saw 15 more school records fall, including 11 for the women and four for the men. In the first meet of the season the women set six school records,

30

though three of them would end up being broken again during the course of the season. Woodard’s 54.98m hammer throw and Oglesby’s 11.79m shot put at the USF Bulls Invitational (Mar. 16) stood as school records at the end of the year, as would Crystal Bardge’s 11.85 in the 100m, the first of five school records Bardge would break in 2013. At the Spikes Classic (Mar. 2324), two more records fell, with Bardge establishing her second record with a 25.22 in the 200m and Bonk setting a new mark in the 5000m Race Walk with a 25:34.70. Staker set a school record in the 1500m with a 4:30.55 at the BARDGE Pepsi Florida Relays, while Megan Bumby set a new mark in the pole vault with a 3.20m mark at The Sun Conference Championships (Apr. 22). Bardge also set another record with a 54.98 in the 400m at the conference meet. At the NAIA Outdoor National Championships (May 24-26), the Eagle women set three additional school records, including the All-American third-place 4x800m relay team comprised of Staker, Coelho, Hyatt and Holly Sandon. Bardge was responsible for the other two records: a runner-up time of 57.91 in the 400m hurdles and a 13.28 in the 100m hurdles, earning her a national championship in the event. Robinson set a new record in the 100m at the USF Bulls Invitational (Mar. 16) with a time of 10.43; later in the year, he broke the 200m record with a 21.21 at the Duke Twilight (May 6). Kirwa also broke another record during the outdoor season, running a 14:02.99 in the 5000m at the Payton Jordan Invitational (Apr. 29). Monte Willett broke the pole vault record with a 5.00m mark at the North Florida Invitational (Mar. 30).

NATIONALS RECAP The Embry-Riddle track & field teams were very well represented at the NAIA Indoor National Championships in March, sending 27 Eagles (15 men, 12 women) to compete at the national meet. The Blue and Gold enjoyed great success at the event, with seven individuals and a relay team earning All-America status, two individuals winning national titles and the women’s team garnering its highest-ever finish at Indoor Nationals. Bonk took home the national title in the 3000m Race Walk, winning the event by over 36 secKIRWA onds in 14:41.95.

History

On Dec. 17, 1925, 22 years after the historic flight of the Wright Flyer, barnstormer John Paul Riddle and entrepreneur T. Higbee Embry founded the Embry-Riddle Company at Lunken Airport in Cincinnati, Ohio. The following spring the company opened the Embry-Riddle School of Aviation. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University began with a simple plan to train airplane pilots in a thorough, efficient manner and to cash in on a booming post-World War I interest in flying. Today, Embry-Riddle leads the world in aviation and aerospace higher education. After a period of decline in the 1930s, Embry-Riddle sprang to life again in Miami, Fla., as World War II erupted in Europe and the demand for aviators and mechanics surged. Allied nations sent more than 25,000 young men to Embry-Riddle’s Florida centers to become pilots and aviation technicians. During the Korean War the U.S. Air Force contracted with Embry-Riddle to train airmen in the fundamentals of airplane maintenance. In the following decades, Embry-Riddle expanded its international outreach and strengthened its academic programs. In 1965, Embry-Riddle consolidated its flight training, ground school and technical training programs into one location. With dollars and trucks borrowed from civic leaders, the move to Daytona Beach signaled

NAIA - Champions of Character WWW.ERAUATHLETICS.COM

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS Throughout its history, the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) has provided strong leadership for all aspects of intercollegiate sports. Since its introduction of intercollegiate championship basketball in 1937, the NAIA has maintained the highest standards while administering first-rate athletics programs. With its major emphasis on education and character development, it was natural for the NAIA to further strengthen academic eligibility requirements in the 1980s. All NAIA participating student-athletes must maintain a 2.0 grade-point-average (GPA) while accumulating credit hours for a declared academic degree. Unlike other associations, NAIA student-athlete academic eligibility is monitored on a term-by-term basis. Since 1937, the NAIA has administered programs and championships in proper balance with the overall educational experience. In 2000, the NAIA reaffirmed its purpose to enhance the character-building aspects of sport.

NAIA Quick Facts

• 60,000 student-athletes • 13 sports • 23 national championships • 300 colleges and universities • $450 million in athletic scholarships

CHAMPIONS OF CHARACTER RESPECT • RESPONSIBILITY • INTEGRITY • SPORTSMANSHIP • SERVANT LEADERSHIP Embry-Riddle Champions of Character Quick Facts • John Mark Adkison, ERAU’s Champions of Character Liaison • 1570+ hours of community service by ERAU student-athletes in 2011-12 • ERAU named a 2011-12 NAIA Champions of Character Five Star Institution The Champions of Character initiative was established by the NAIA to help promote the “right thing” by those affiliated with sports both inside and outside the sports setting. In so doing, the organization looks to develop exemplary character and sportsmanship in NAIA competition. Through Champions of Character, the NAIA seeks to create an environment in which every student-athlete, coach, official and spectator is committed to the true spirit of competition through five tenets: respect, integrity, responsibility, servant leadership and sportsmanship. This program educates and create awareness of the positive character-building traits afforded by sports and returns integrity to competition at the collegiate and youth levels while impacting all of society. Under the guidance of Assistant Athletic Director John Mark Adkison, who serves as ERAU’s Champions of Character liaison, the Embry-Riddle Athletic Department has enthusiastically embraced the implementation of the NAIA Champions of Character initiative. For years the department has sought to instill in student-athletes the very values addressed by the movement. Embry-Riddle’s intercollegiate teams participate in Champions of Character events throughout the school year, including: • Elementary school reading programs • Habitat for Humanity • Food Brings Hope • Beach clean-up • Children’s Home Society Christmas Drive • Embry-Riddle Housing move-in • Serving Thanksgiving dinner to the homeless In addition to these events, the department instituted a Student-Athlete Leadership Team (SALT) that assists in the planning of Champions of Character events within the community.
