Embry-Riddle Softball

2014

Media Gu

In its inaugural season the Embry-Riddle softball team finished 16-25 overall and 8-8 in Sun Conference play. Seeded sixth in the conference tournament, the Eagles went 3-2 to earn a third-place finish. Head Coach Sarah Lockett believes this year’s team can improve on last year’s results. “I think we have built on the foundation that we established last year,” Lockett said. “We worked very hard in the fall on developing our culture and then introducing a new softball strategy concept to our team that the girls have really taken to. Our expectations are to go out every day and follow the process and play the best softball that we can. I think if the girls do that, then we will be very competitive in The Sun Conference and possibly on a national level.”

Infielders Dee Espinosa and Sarah Huey were two of the anchors of the Eagle lineup last year, playing primarily catcher and second base, respectively. Lockett expects that they will be leaned on heavily again in 2014. Espinosa started all 41 games in 2013 and earned All-Conference accolades, hitting .358 and leading the team in doubles (14), RBIs (41), slugging percentage (.593), walks (17) and sacrifice flies (7).

Dee Espinosa “Dee is going to be the anchor behind the plate for us,” Lockett remarked. “She brings a lot of tools back there and has great softball knowledge. Offensively, I am looking for her to have a big year.” Huey also started all 41 games last year and was an All-Conference selection, leading the team with a .444 batting average, .470 on-base percentage, 63 hits, 80 total bases, 38 runs scored and 15 stolen bases. “Sarah was one of the leading hitters in the country last year, and I am expecting her to have another solid year,” Lockett stated. “She’ll play second and short for us and she’ll be one of the mainstays near the top of our lineup.” Joining Espinosa and Huey in the Eagle infield will be three newcomers. Junior transfer Talia Barraco is expected to start at first base with freshmen Jennifer Estrada and Anna Battison seeing significant playing time at second base and third base, respectively.

2014 PREVIEW

Barraco comes to EmbryRiddle after playing two seasons at St. Petersburg College. Last season, Barraco hit .280 with 10 doubles and 23 RBIs. “Talia has been an absolutely fantastic pick-up for us,” Lockett commented. “She can bunt well, hit for average, runs fairly well, and plays solid defense. She’s going to hit around the top of the lineup and play mostly first base and maybe some at third for us.” Estrada was a three-time first team All-League selection and a two-time defensive player of the year at Reedley High School in Reedley, Calif. “Jennifer is going to get a chance to play a lot at the beginning of the season so that she can really show us what she can do,” Lockett said. “She is primarily a middle infielder who can also play the outfield, but I think she’ll be either at second base or shortstop most of the time. She has great range and a great read on the ball at the middle infield positions. I’m really excited to see what she can do this year and throughout her career.” Battison played catcher and outfield at South Delta Secondary School in Tsawwassen, B.C., but she has proven to be the best option at third base for Lockett and the Eagles. “Anna has been a tremendous pick-up for us,” Lockett remarked. “She’ll probably start for us at third base where she has a fantastic arm. She also played catcher in the fall and showed us that she can legitimately play that position if we need her to. She is the fastest player on our team and I am looking forward to seeing her develop in her freshman season.”

Outfielders Coach Lockett utilized a number of different outfielders last season, with seven different players starting at least five games in the outfield. All seven of those players are returning and will likely see time in the outfield again in 2014, along with Haleigh Lewis, who is going to play primarily in the outfield this season after playing shortstop and third base last year.

Samantha Smith Lewis started 35 games last season, hitting .324 with seven doubles, two home runs and 19 RBIs. “Haleigh is one of our leading hitters, so it’s important for us to find a place for her in the lineup,” Lockett stated. “We’ve decided to give her a chance to play some in the outfield this season, though she might still play some at third base and shortstop. As long as she hits like she did last season, she’ll be in the middle of the lineup for us.” Another mainstay in the Eagle outfield will be Jessica Osteen. Osteen made 33 starts in 2013, hitting .317 with six doubles, two home runs and 15 runs batted in. “Jessica brings a lot of consistency at the plate, so we’ll need to find a way to keep her in the lineup,” Lockett commented.

“We’re looking at having her play predominantly in left field or as a DP, but like Haleigh, as long as she hits, she’ll be in the lineup.” Samantha Smith started 35 games in right field for EmbryRiddle in 2013, and she will have the opportunity to earn a majority of the starts in that same position this year. Smith hit .220 with 22 hits and 20 runs scored last year. “In the fall, Samantha was one of the best hitters on the team,” Lockett said. “She’s shown a really big improvement offensively, so she’s earned the starting spot in right field. I’m excited to see her have a really good senior season.” Alex Wood saw a lot of playing time in center field last year, which is something that Lockett believes will continue into 2014. Wood hit .345, the fifth-best average on the team last season. She also scored 17 runs and was 12-for-15 in stolen bases. “Alex will get a lot of time in the outfield, predominantly in center but also in left,” Lockett remarked. “She brings a lot of speed and athleticism to the outfield, which allows her to run down balls really well. I want to use her in the eight or nine hole in the lineup, where she can serve as a secondary leadoff hitter for us.” Chanley Burge started over half of ERAU’s games last season, but Lockett sees a new role for her this year. Burge hit .217 for the season but came on strong in the conference tournament, batting .500 with two home runs and four runs scored. “We’re looking to use Chanley in a role where she would come in to pinch run or play defense late in games,” Lockett stated. “She can make plays in the outfield that some of our other athletes can’t make, so it’s crucial for us to be able to use her late in a game when we have the lead, so that we can ensure we have the best defensive team on the field.” Along the same lines as Burge, Ariel Brayer will serve as an important role player in 2014. Brayer batted .234 with three doubles, a home run and seven RBIs. “Ariel is another athlete that we see as someone who can provide a lift off the bench, whether it be in the field or pinch running or getting a clutch hit or putting a bunt down when we need it,” Lockett commented. “She will play center field for us in some key situations as well as serving as a pinch hitter late in games.” Rae Heuer is another option for the Eagles in right field. Heuer had nine starts in 2013, collecting two hits, six walks and five runs scored. “Rae didn’t get a chance to play a whole lot last year due to injuries, so this is going to be sort of like a freshman year for her,” Lockett said. “If she can get going offensively, we’re going to try to get her in the lineup every day, because she can absolutely mash.” Jori Walan saw some time in left field last season and was also one of the team’s most-used pinch runners. Walan started seven times last year, recording three hits, four stolen bases and seven runs scored. “Jori will see some time in the outfield and we will use her again as a pinch runner in key situations,” Lockett remarked. “She is another one of our role players that will play a pivotal role in the team’s success this year. Coming off the bench isn’t the most glamorous job in softball, but it is a very important one, and Jori is capable of doing that in big moments for us.”

Pitchers

Schedule

Alexis Estrada and Robi Zimmerman were the two workhorses for the Eagles in 2013, logging 91.5% of the innings in the circle. This season, Lockett expects much of the same from them. Estrada went 11-10 with a 5.49 ERA last year, hurling 116.1 innings with 11 complete games and two shutouts, striking out a team-high 106 batters. “Alexis is going to eat up innings for us, just like she did last year,” Lockett stated. “She is very consistent and we’ll be looking to her to be that stabilizing force throughout the season. I am always confident in giving her the ball and expecting her to keep us in the game for the full seven innings.” Zimmerman started all 41 games last year, including 21 as a pitcher. She finished 5-12 with a 6.96 ERA in the circle, leading the team in complete games (13) and innings pitched (120.1). At the plate, Zimmerman batted .357, third-best on the team, with 10 doubles, five home runs and 34 RBIs. “Robi played a lot of first and third base last year in addition to pitching and hitting, so this year we’re going to have her focus on just pitching and hitting,” Lockett commented. “We want to keep her fresh so that she can come in and pitch at a high level late in games. She’s also going to hit in the heart of the lineup and I think she’s going to have a great year at the plate and in the circle.” Joining Estrada and Zimmerman on the Eagle pitching staff is freshman Taylor Cowan. Cowan, who could also see some time in the outfield and will be a hitter for the Eagles, played infield, outfield and pitched at Eau Gallie High School in Melbourne, Fla. “Taylor gives us some flexibility with what she can do both offensively and defensively,” Lockett said. “She is a good pitcher that will allow us to rest Alexis and Robi at times, but she can also play the outfield and she has a pretty good stick, so I think she can help us at the plate, too. She’s a really good fit for our team and I’m excited to have her for the next few years.”

The Eagles open up the 2014 season by hosting a fiveteam tournament at the ERAU Softball Stadium Feb. 7-9. Embry-Riddle is slated to take on Mobile, Georgia Gwinnett and Daytona State during the three-day event. The following weekend, the Blue and Gold will hit the road to take on Point at the NAIA Southern Challenge in Clermont, Fla., before traveling to Boca Raton, Fla. for a doubleheader against NCAA II Lynn. Following a two-week break, the Eagles return home for back-to-back doubleheaders against Madonna (Mar. 2) and William Penn (Mar. 3). The weekend of Mar. 7-9 Embry-Riddle will take part in the Gulf Coast Invitational in Gulf Shores, Ala., a tournament that features some of the top NAIA programs in the country. The Eagles are scheduled to face preseason No. 23 Central Methodist as well as St. Thomas, Campbellsville and Faulkner during pool play Mar. 7-8, with a bracketed tournament slated for Mar. 9. After hosting Hastings (Mar. 16) and Talladega (Mar. 19) in a pair of non-conference doubleheaders, the Blue and Gold will open up Sun Conference play on the road. ERAU will play at Ave Maria on Mar. 21, followed by a trip to Warner the next day. Embry-Riddle will host Columbia College in its final nonconference contests of the regular season on Mar. 24 before wrapping up the road slate at St. Thomas (Mar. 29) and Northwood (Mar. 30). The Eagles close out the season with four home conference doubleheaders beginning with Thomas (Apr. 5) and South Carolina Beaufort (Apr. 6). The following weekend Southeastern visits Daytona Beach on Apr. 12, with the final doubleheader set for Apr. 16 against Webber International. The Sun Conference Tournament will once again be held at the National Training Center in Clermont, Fla., with the top seven teams advancing to the tournament. Games begin on May 1 with the championship set to be decided on May 3. The winner of the tournament earns the conference’s automatic bid to the NAIA National Championship. The Opening Round of the NAIA National Championship will take place on 10 campus sites around the country May 12-14, with the winners advancing to the final site tournament May 23-29 in Columbus, Ga.

HEAD COACH SARAH LOCKETT

ide

Media Gu

Sarah Lockett Head Coach | 2nd Season Career Record: 16-25

Following an extensive nationwide search, Sarah Lockett was appointed as the first-ever head coach of the Embry-Riddle softball program in Aug. 2011. Lockett, who is originally from Perth Australia, brought an impressive resume to Embry-Riddle with coaching experience at the collegiate and international levels. She also played at the international level for almost a decade. After competing for the Australian National Squad from 1998-02, she then went on to compete for Great Britain for four years. She played for Great Britain at the 2003 European Championships, the 2006 KFC World Cup of Softball and the 2006 Softball World Championships before retiring in 2006. Lockett’s collegiate playing career began at Coastal Carolina University where she was a three-year letterwinner with the Chanticleers from 1999-01. In her final season at CCU, she ranked among the nation’s best in home runs (9th), slugging percentage (14th) and RBI (25th) and was subsequently named the 2001 Big South Conference Most Valuable Player. A two-time South East first team AllRegion and Big South first team All-Conference selection, Lockett also excelled in the classroom as she was tabbed as the Big South Conference Scholar Athlete of the Year in 2000 and 2001, and was a Verizon first team Academic All-American in 2001. Her prolific career at Coastal Carolina ended with her being ranked among the Chanticleers’ all-time top five in batting average (.374) home runs (37), doubles (44) and slugging percentage (.679) and earned her a spot in the Coastal Carolina Athletics Hall of Fame, where she was inducted in 2006. In 2002, Lockett opted to complete her playing career at Kennesaw State and used her talents to help the Owls advance to the NCAA Division II National Tournament. She started in 57 games, primarily at third base, and hit .406 in the regular season, .353 in the postseason, and totaled 11 homers and 54 RBI on the way to NCAA II first team All-America honors. After wrapping up her career at Kennesaw State in 2002, Lockett stayed on as a graduate assistant coach for two more seasons during which time she helped the Owls to a 99-17 overall record, including a 38-0 win streak in 2004, a Peach Belt Conference Championship, an NCAA Division II Regional title and a trip to the NCAA Division II National Tournament. Lockett’s first full-time coaching opportunity came in the fall of 2004, where she was hired as an assistant coach at Coastal Carolina. During Lockett’s four years on the coaching staff, the Chanticleers won the 2006 Big South Conference Tournament Championship and earned a berth in the NCAA Division I Athens regional. The 2006 club set a new single-season program record for home runs with 58, but that mark was eclipsed by the 2007 team that belted out 62 homers. Several student-athletes also garnered individual recognition in the Big South Conference as she helped guide 13 All-Conference selections, 10 All-Tournament team selections, one Conference Tournament MVP, four Academic All-Conference honorees and one conference Scholar Athlete of the Year.

In her three seasons as an assistant coach, six players earned All-Atlantic Sun recognition, five were named to the conference All-Freshman team and two were All-Tournament selections. In the summer of 2011, Lockett was given the opportunity to coach at the highest level of international competition when she was selected to the staff of the Australian National Team. She served as an assistant coach for Team Australia in the Canadian Open Fastpitch International Women’s Championship in Vancouver and the World Cup of Softball in Oklahoma City, both in July.

The Sun Conference, formerly the Florida Sun Conference, is heading into its 24th season of competition and continues to be one of the most successful intercollegiate athletic conferences in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. The institutions in the conference believe in strong educational commitment combined with balanced athletic competition. Originally formed in March 1990 as the Florida Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (FIAC), The Sun Conference was established as a conference for small independent institutions within the NAIA. The name “Florida Sun Conference” was adopted in 1992. The league unveiled its new name, “The Sun Conference” on August 18, 2008 to be inclusive of member schools from Georgia and South Carolina. Under the guidance of commissioner Mark Pope, 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 field and women’s volleyball. Sun Conference teams are perennial contenders for national titles. In 2013-14, 36 teams made national tournament appearances. The Embry-Riddle men’s tennis team captured the 2013 NAIA National Championship while the Eagles’ women’s golf and baseball teams finished third in their respective national championships. Additionally, the league racked up numerous individual national titles as Embry-Riddle’s Patrick Besch won the ITA/NAIA National singles title, while the Eagles’ Reta Woodard, Nicole Bonk and Mike Edwards won national titles in track and field. Northwood’s Ra’Shad James was named the NAIA Division II Men’s Basketball Player of the Year in 2013 while ERAU’s Deni Zmak was named the Ward Ballinger

Award winner in men’s tennis. Additionally, EmbryRiddle’s Dave Paschal earned national Coach of the Year honors for men’s tennis. In 2013-14 alone, 64 student-athletes from the league were named NAIA All-Americans, while 144 TSC athletes were also named Daktronics-NAIA AllAmerica Scholar-Athletes. Embry-Riddle finished first in The Sun Conference Commissioner’s Cup, which is awarded annually to the strongest athletic program in the league. Since the league’s inception in 1990, only five teams have captured the Commissioner’s Cup, formerly known as the All-Sports Trophy. Embry-Riddle won its 14th straight cup in 2013-14, continuing to set the mark for cups won. Former member Nova Southeastern is second with five honors, St. Thomas is third (2), while Webber International and Flagler each earned the award during the first two years of the conference. 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 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 recruited new members as SCAD Savannah joined in 2004 followed by Edward Waters in 2006. With the addition of South Carolina Beaufort, Johnson and Wales, Southeastern, Ave Maria and Thomas (Ga.) within the last four years, along with Edward Waters’ move to the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference, the league membership now stands at 12 schools.

2013 SEASON IN REVIEW

Eagles Open Inaugural Season at Flagler

Feb. 2, 2013 was a day of firsts for the Embry-Riddle Softball program, but the Eagles fell short of the one first they wanted the most: the first win. The Blue and Gold were swept by Flagler on the road, 10-1 and 11-9. Embry-Riddle got things off to a promising start as Sarah Huey laced a double off the right-field wall in the program’s first at-bat, missing a home run by just a couple of feet. Two batters later, Dee Espinosa hit a sacrifice fly to score Huey with the first run in program history. The Saints quickly rallied with two runs in the first and led for the rest of the game, claiming a 10-1 victory. Game two saw ERAU take an early 2-0 lead only to have Flagler score twice in the first and five times in the second to take a 7-2 lead. In the third inning, Robi Zimmerman hit the first home run in program history, pulling the Eagles within three at 7-4. Espinosa stepped up in the following inning and launched the first grand slam for the Eagles, putting ERAU ahead, 9-7. The Saints came back with a four-run sixth to win the game, 11-9.

Embry-Riddle Sweeps Mariners

On Feb. 24, the ERAU softball team picked up the first two wins in program history. Embry-Riddle knocked off Coastal Georgia on the road, 3-2 and 6-3. The Eagles got off to a fast start in game one, scoring three times in the second inning thanks to RBI singles from Chanley Burge and Samantha Smith and a run via a wild pitch for a 3-0 lead. CCG got a run in the third and another in the seventh, but Zimmerman was able to secure the 3-2 win, pitching all seven innings to earn the first victory in program history. Zimmerman singled home Huey to open the scoring in game two and Huey delivered a three-run home run to extend the lead to 4-0. A two-run home run for the Mariners cut the lead to 4-3 in the third, but the Eagles answered with a pair of runs in the seventh to make it 6-3, which would prove to be the final score.

Blue and Gold Sweep Bellevue in First Regular Season Home Games

The Eagles opened up their home field in style, sweeping the visiting Bellevue Bruins with an 8-7 walk-off win in game one and a 4-2 victory in the second game on Mar. 1. After BU scored first, Embry-Riddle bounced back with a pair of runs in the second inning to take a 2-1 lead. Jessica Osteen drilled a double to right field, scoring Haleigh Lewis to tie the game. Krizzy Menez pinch ran for Osteen, promptly stole third base and then scored on a passed ball, giving the Eagles the lead, 2-1. The Bruins came back with five straight runs to move ahead, 6-2, before Espinosa launched a two-run home run over the left-field fence in the fifth, the first home run ever hit at the ERAU Softball Stadium. BU scored a run in the seventh to make it 7-4, sending the Eagles to their last at-bat down by three. Sarah Huey started the bottom of the seventh with a solid single to right, and Savannah Smith followed with her first career home run, a tworun shot that made the score 7-6. The next batter, Espinosa, singled through the left side, prompting a pitching change for Bellevue. Zimmerman welcomed the new pitcher a line drive over the head of the left fielder for a double, scoring Espinosa with the game-tying run. After Lewis bunted Zimmerman to third, Rae Heuer entered as a pinch runner for Zimmerman. The Bruins then intentionally walked Osteen and Chanley Burge to load the bases with one out. Melanie Lee came off the bench to pinch hit for Jori Walan and hit an 0-2 pitch towards the second baseman, who misplayed the ball, allowing Heuer to score the game-winning run. Embry-Riddle got on the board first in game two when Osteen hit a sacrifice fly to score Menez in the bottom of the second inning, putting ERAU ahead, 1-0. The home team added another run in the third when Heuer scored on Savannah Smith’s two-out double, increasing the lead to 2-0. The Bruins cut the lead in half (2-1) on a sac fly in the

fourth, but Alexis Estrada set down seven of the next eight batters to keep the Eagles in front. Savannah Smith came through with a bases-loaded single in the fifth, scoring Samantha Smith and Heuer, giving the Blue and Gold a 4-1 lead. In the seventh inning, Bellevue scored a run on a fielder’s choice to cut the deficit to 4-2 and the Bruins had the potential tying run on base with just one out. Estrada showed her poise, striking out Kristin Burhenne for the second out. With a 2-2 count on Matoba, Emily Hester got caught off first base on a pickoff attempt by Espinosa. Lewis eventually applied the tag to end the game and complete the doubleheader sweep.

Eagles Finish Third at Conference Tournament

The Embry-Riddle softball team entered The Sun Conference tournament as the No. 6 seed, but the Eagles outperformed their seeding, finishing in third place, just one win away from the championship game. The Blue and Gold opened the tournament with a 7-3 loss to third-seeded Southeastern. ERAU fell behind 4-0 in the third inning and couldn’t mount a comeback against the Fire, falling to the loser’s bracket after the first day of games. Day two saw the Eagles play two-and-a-half games, including knocking two teams out of the tournament. The day started with an elimination game against defending tournament champion Webber International. Embry-Riddle jumped out to a 2-0 lead, scoring on a fielding error and a squeeze play in the first inning. The Warriors cut the lead in half in the second but Savannah Smith singled home Burge in the fourth to regain a two-run lead. WIU scored once in the fifth but the Blue and Gold held on for a 3-2 win, knocking the Warriors out of the tournament. Next up for the Eagles was another elimination game against Thomas. As they did against WIU, the Eagles jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning thanks to a two-run home run off the bat of Zimmerman. The Blue and Gold tacked on four more in the second, scoring single runs on RBI doubles from Wood and Savannah Smith, along with an RBI single from Espinosa. After Thomas scored a pair in the third to cut the lead to 6-2, ERAU answered with four runs in the fourth keyed by a two-run double from Zimmerman that scored Savannah Smith and Huey. That double put the Eagles ahead 10-2 heading to the fifth. The Night Hawks plated a run in the top of the fifth to temporarily stave off the mercy rule, but an error in the bottom half allowed Samantha Smith to score, ending the game with the Eagles victorious 11-3 thanks to the mercy rule. The victory over TU set up a rematch against Southeastern, with the winner advancing to the loser’s bracket championship game. The Blue and Gold opened up a 3-0 lead over the Fire with a three-run third inning before rain halted the game, forcing a postponement until the following morning. SEU rallied back with a run in the fourth and two in the fifth to tie the game at 3-3. The score remained tied until the seventh inning, when the Eagles batted around with two outs. After the first two batters were retired, Chanley Burge launched a home run over the right-center field fence, giving ERAU a 4-3 lead. Two batters later, Espinosa doubled home Wood. Three batters later Zimmerman drew a bases-loaded walk, bringing the score to 6-3. Osteen was then hit by a pitch and Haleigh Lewis followed with a two-run double, extending the lead to 9-3. Samantha Smith drove in Osteen with the 10th run, followed by Lewis scoring on an error and Samantha Smith scoring on a wild pitch, capping the nine-run inning. The Fire could only muster one run in the bottom of the inning, giving Embry-Riddle a 12-4 win that sent the Fire home. That afternoon, Embry-Riddle faced St. Thomas, with the winner earning a spot in the championship. The magic that the Eagles found the day before ran out against the Bobcats, ending the inaugural season for ERAU. STU took a 3-0 lead in the second and built up an 8-2 lead after three innings of play. Embry-Riddle couldn’t muster enough offense to threaten a comeback, falling by a score of 10-3.

Three Eagles Named to All-Conference Roster

In its first season of competition, the Embry-Riddle softball team placed three players on the 2013 Sun Conference All-Conference roster. A trio of freshman, including Espinosa, Huey and Savannah Smith, all received the honor on at the conference tournament banquet in Clermont, Fla. Espinosa, a freshman from Miami, Fla., was one of two catchers selected. She was second on the team with a .358 batting average and led the team with five home runs, 14 doubles and 41 RBIs. Huey, a freshman from Tomball, Texas, earned one of the six infield slots. She finished second in the conference and 14th in the country in hits/game (1.54) and third in the conference and 26th in the NAIA in batting average (.444). Huey also led the Eagles with 15 stolen bases and 38 runs scored. Smith, a freshman from Spring, Texas, was one of four atlarge selections. She was fourth on the team with a .350 batting average and second in on-base percentage (.439). Smith also tied for second among the Eagles with 10 doubles and recorded 15 walks, second-most on the team. Also honored at the banquet was Eagle pitcher Melanie Lee, who was named to the Academic All-Conference team. Lee, a sophomore from Crystal River, Fla., finished the semester with a 3.61 GPA as an Engineering major. She appeared in six games for the Blue and Gold, compiling an 0-3 record with one complete game. Lee also drew four walks and put down four sacrifice bunts in 16 plate appearances.

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is the world’s oldest, largest and most prestigious university specializing in aviation and aerospace. The curriculum covers the operation, engineering and research of modern aircraft, alternative vehicles and clean energy systems and the management of aviation and aerospace organizations. Approximately 34,000 students pursue degrees from among 40 degree programs at residential campuses in Daytona Beach, Fla., and Prescott, Ariz., and at more than 150 education centers for working professionals in the United States, Canada, Europe and the Middle East. Embry-Riddle also offers online coursework. Embry-Riddle’s worldwide reputation for academic excellence draws students from all 50 states and nearly 90 nations. The 185-acre Daytona Beach campus, located next to Daytona Beach International Airport, has 4,600 undergraduate and 610 graduate students. Excellent flying weather and the resort communities surrounding the Daytona Beach campus offer students an outstanding environment in which to study, fly and enjoy numerous recreational and cultural activities. The campus is within an hour’s drive of the Kennedy Space Center and the Space Coast and within easy reach of Orlando and Jacksonville, which offer a menu of arts, culture, theme parks, shopping and professional sports.

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.

B.E.S.T. PROGRAM

ide

THE B.E.S.T. PROGRAM The Braddock Education Success Team (BEST) Program was incorporated into the Embry-Riddle Athletic Program during the 1999-00 academic year. The BEST Program is a branch of the Braddock Foundation, which was established by Robert & Lois Braddock. It is currently sponsored by their daughter and Spruce Creek Fly-in resident, Cherie Keemar, and was initiated by her late husband, Michael. The BEST program offers tutoring and mentoring programs to assist student-athletes in managing their time between academics, athletics and social development. One of the fundamental components of the BEST Program is Study Hall, which is for student-athletes who are required to attend according to stipulations set by each respective team’s coaching staff. Study Hall is a place where tutors and mentors are available for student-athletes throughout the academic year. With its clearly defined criteria and rules of conduct, Study Hall strives to provide a structured environment

2014

that will benefit student-athletes by improving study habits, honing focus and providing one-on-one learning opportunities. It is not intended to be a substitute for regular class attendance and routine study, but is designed as an essential tool to help student-athletes achieve their academic objectives. Dave Therneau serves as the Academic Enhancement Coordinator of the BEST Program. He and other BEST Program staff members oversee the daily operations of the Academic Advancement Center where all students, including athletes, can go and receive tutoring in many of the courses and subjects that are part of the curriculum at Embry-Riddle. Embry-Riddle opened a new College of Arts & Sciences building in Fall 2013. It will house a 9,000 square foot facility dedicated to the University’s Academic Achievement Center, which includes the BEST Program.

THE NAIA / CHAMPIONS OF CHARACTER

ide National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics

Media Gu

In the NAIA, a dedication to leadership development is balanced with sports accomplishment. A trailblazer in providing equal opportunity for all student-athletes. An expectation of ethical behavior, fairness in competition, access to athletic scholarship, sportsmanship and leadership development. At the core of all of this — character. The seed of the NAIA began in 1937 with the tip-off of a men’s basketball tournament that has become the longest running basketball tournament in the country, celebrating 75 years in 2012. Out of the tournament grew the NAIA, an association of close to 300 member schools and more than 60,000 student-athletes. 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. 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 core values: integrity, respect, responsibility, sportsmanship and servant leadership. Most recently, the association opened the doors to the NAIA Eligibility Center, where prospective student-athletes are evaluated for academic and athletic eligibility. It delivers on a larger promise of integrity by leveling the playing field, guiding student-athlete success, and ensuring fair competition. Providing student-athletes a chance to connect with NAIA schools and coaches helps them make the best decision to prepare them for success in both college and athletics.

champions of character respect • Responsibility • Integrity • Sportsmanship • servant Leadership 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. 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. Additionally, the Student-Athlete Leadership Team assists in evaluation and feedback on the overall student-athlete experience. In 2012-13, Embry-Riddle student-athletes, coaches and staff contributed logged 2,285 hours in community service hours.

Members of Embry-Riddle’s Student-Athlete Leadership Team volunteered at the Children’s Home Society, helping to organize their Christmas toy donations.

At the beginning of the year, teams whose studentathletes have arrived on campus early for preseason workouts, take a few hours off practice to help new Embry-Riddle students move in to on-campus housing.

Embry-Riddle’s athletic programs are involved in local elmentary school reading programs.

For the last three years, Embry-Riddle has partnered with the Food Brings Hope Initiative, bringing elementary and middle school children on to campus for special programing, including facility tours, basketball games and pizza.

In 2012, Embry-Riddle women’s soccer hosted the second annual Habitat for Humanity Invitational. The teams in the two-day tournament take a one-day break from competition to volunteer at a local Habitat for Humanity project.

In January 2013, ERAU Athletics partnered with the Embry-Riddle chapter of Phi Gamma Delta for a fundraising run from Daytona Beach to West Palm Beach. Proceeds went to to a fund for former ERAU women’s soccer play Kate Schwikert who is currently battling cancer.
