Welch Stadium In 2010 Emporia State University will celebrate its 70th season in Francis G. Welch Stadium. The stadium is named in honor of ESU's long-time coach and athletic director. Welch guided the efforts of the Hornet football program from 1928-42, and then again from 1946-54. In those two spans, Welch won 115 games and is the all-time winningest coach in ESU football history. The Super Turf playing surface is named for the W.S. and E.C. Jones Trust that provided the lead gift for the artificial surface. Opened in 1937 and dedicated in 1960, the stadium sits just north of beautiful Lake Wooster and has seated as many as 10,000 fans when bleachers were added in each end zone. Permanent lighting makes it possible to televise games and play at night. The facility also has been used extensively by individuals outside the University community. Welch Stadium is the home field of the Emporia High School football team and has hosted the Hershey Track and Field State Championships, Special Olympics, the 1998, 2004 and 2008 Kansas Shrine Bowl. The 1995, 1999 and most recently the 2006 NCAA Division II National Track Championships were held here at the Zola Witten Track. In 1992, the “GOING THE DISTANCE CAMPAIGN” was initiated. With its completion, track and field events once again were held at ESU. In 1995 and 1999, the NCAA Division II National Track and Field Championships were held on the new Zola Witten Track within Welch Stadium. In 1994, as part of the campaign’s second phase, the east and west side concession areas, restroom facilities, and entrances were renovated. A new scoreboard was hoisted into place at the south end of the stadium and a new landscaped fence was erected. In 1997, the final phase was completed in time for the University’s 100th season of intercollegiate football. The Hutchinson Family Pavilion is a three-tiered facility

2

which has enclosed theatre seating on the first floor, a president’s box and four skyboxes on the second floor, and a game-day management and media center on the third floor. The facility was one of the first on the NCAA Division II level to offer enclosed skyboxes and is still one of only a few across the nation. The latest upgrades to the historic facility came prior to the 2006 season with the addition of the Super Turf playing surface and upgrade of the stadium’s sound system. The first game at Welch Stadium came on Armistice Day, 1937. The Hornets tied St. Benedict's College, 20-20. More than 6,000 fans saw the first game in the facility. The Hornets gained a tie for the Central Intercollegiate Conference title by beating Pittsburg State, 7-0, on Homecoming 1951. Quarterback Bob Sherrer won the game with a 69-yard TD run. The Hornets defeated Washburn on Homecoming 1972, 41-7. With the win, the Hornets won the Great Plains Athletic Conference and earned a berth in the Boot Hill Bowl Game. In 1973, a record crowd of 10,000 saw the Hornets defeat Northern Colorado, 10-0, as the Hornets vaulted to a No. 3 ranking in the NAIA. ESU tied UNC for the Great Plains Athletic Conference championship in 1973. The Hornets defeated Harding, 32-9, as ESU advanced to the NAIA semifinals in 1989. After winning on the road the following week at Adams State, ESU played for the national title against Carson-Newman. The Hornets won their first ever MidAmerica Intercollegiate Athletics Association game when they defeated Missouri Western, 23-22, before a crowd of more than 5,800 on September 21, 1991. The Hornets defeated Washburn, 64-35, in front of a regional television audience, on October 30, 1997. Brian Shay became the school’s all-time leading rusher and finished the game with an MIAA-record 469

all-purpose yards. On September 19, 1998 the Hornets defeated Pittsburg State, 38-28, in front of 9,200 fans - the second largest crowd in Welch Stadium history. Emporia State again defeated Pittsburg State on October 12, 2002 this time by a score of 13-3 on the way to the Hornets first postseason appearance since 1989. The Hornets went 4-2 on the Jones Field at Welch Stadium turf in 2008, their best home record since 2003. The addition of Jones Field at Welch Stadium to the Hutchinson Family Pavilion ESU  has maintained its position as one of the finest football facilities at the NCAA Division II level in the nation.

Facilities

A new Super Turf artificial surface was installed at Welch Stadium in the summer of 2005. A new sound system was installed in the summer of 2006, to enhance the enjoyment of the gameday experience for Hornet fans. The Hutchinson Family Pavilion includes private suites and has served as a model for programs across the country wishing to upgrade their facilities.

A weight room, office complex, and locker room improvements were implemented during the 1999 season. These improvements were made possible by the generous support of individuals known as “Difference Makers.�

The ESU football program is committed to providing an environment for the student-athlete which hopefully maximizes the potential for success.

Prior to ESU, Higgins compiled a 51-9 record (.857) as the head coach at Northwestern Oklahoma State University before becoming the co-offensive coordinator at NCAA Division II member Minnesota State in 2005. He was the offensive coordinator at Northeastern State University of the Lone Star Conference in 2006. NSU was 3-2 in the LSC, their first winning conference record since 2000. While at NWOSU, the Rangers qualified for the NAIA playoffs five consecutive seasons, had three national title game appearances and he was named the Central State Football League Coach of the Year five straight years from 2000 through 2004. He also led the Rangers to five CSFL titles during that span. Higgins’ offense rolled up over 42 points per game from 1999-2003 and his rushing offense led the nation in 1999 and 2000. The Rangers won 31 consecutive games from Oct. 1998 through December 2000 and were 15-3 against NCAA Division II schools under Higgins. His .857 winning percentage is the highest in NWOSU history. Higgins has coached three players that have gone on to play in the NFL - Lynn Scott with the Dallas Cowboys, Sam Breeden with the Green Bay Packers and current Dallas Cowboy Patrick Crayton. In 2006 season he coached Jarrett Byers to the Lone Star Conference North Wide Receiver of the Year Award “Emporia State can and will compete for conference championships in football,” said Higgins. “And the MIAA is hands down the best conference in the nation.” A native of Blackwell, Okla. where he was an all-state quarterback, Higgins earned his undergraduate degree at Emporia State in 1992. He was a four-year letterman for the Hornets and helped lead the team to a national runner-up finish in 1989. He has been involved with four teams that have played for or won national championships as a player, coordinator or head coach.

“Emporia State provided me a wonderful experience as a student-athlete and I hope to do the same for my players,” said Higgins. “We are going to recruit kids that want to come to ESU and represent this university well on the field, in the classroom and in the community.” Higgins and his wife Heather, a 1995 graduate of ESU, are the parents of three children - son Halen and daughters Harlee and Gracyn.

Coach Higgins What brought you back to Emporia State? First of all, anytime you get a chance to come back to your alma mater as the head football coach, it really is a dream come true and it is something I always thought about ever since I got into the profession. Second, along with being a great University and a great community, I think this is a great location to recruit kids too, to get an education and play football. What are your goals for the 2010 season? We definitely want to improve from last year. We need to begin to win those close games and beat an opponent that everybody else perceives us to be an underdog to. We have different goals within our program, but definitely would like to be in post season play this year whether it’s the playoffs or a bowl game. What most excites you about your third season? We’re beginning to look at our team picture and see 80-85% of the team begin to be players we recruited and watching the steps they have taken to become good football players. We are still relatively young in certain positions, but also have a veteran group in two of the most important positions at offensive and defensive line so it’s exciting to continue to watch them compete and develop. What should fans expect to see out on the field when they come to Welch Stadium? We definitely want to be a team that plays with a lot of enthusiasm and energy. We’ll respect our opponents, but want to have the attitude that we will never take the field without the belief that we will win. How do you want the typical Hornet football player to be perceived? A player that has a strong work ethic, is concerned about his teammates and is mentally and physically tough. Along with having the right type of character off the field. When a player graduates from your program, what do you want them to remember from it? I definitely want our player to have the same type of experience that I did as a student athlete at ESU. We want to be proud not only of our football program but of this great institution. We want them leaving here with a sense of pride that their alma mater is Emporia State University. We want them to be leaders in their communities and be a positive impact in everything they want to do in life.

2010 Preview It is said that football games are won and lost along the line of scrimmage.  That Emporia State will be going into the 2010 season with a very experienced group on both sides of the line, bodes well for the Hornets as they enter head coach Garin Higgins fourth year at the helm. Offense The Hornets were ranked second in the MIAA in rushing last season and will again need to run the ball in order to be successful.  The depth should be it’s best in coach Higgins four years, with three returners that have gained over 100 yards rushing in a game and three receivers coming back with over 200 yards last season. Offensive Line Returners made 42 of the 55 potential starts for the second ranked rushing team in the MIAA last season.   The Hornets return all five starters from their last game of the year in which they outgained Washburn 254 yards to 169 yards.  Even with the experience returning only two players, Ayo Ademiluyi (Sr./Dartford-Kent, UK) and Randy Holladay (Sr./Topeka, Kan.) are seniors for the Hornets this year. Jordan Godberson (Jr./Olathe, Kan.) started nine games on his way to honorable mention All-MIAA status. Ben McKaig (Jr./Wichita, Kan.) and Lance Uhles (So./Norman, Okla.) started every game for the Hornets.  Ademiluyi started ten games including the final seven of the season.  Holladay saw action in seven games last season and is the other Hornet to start the final game of the year.     ESU also stressed line play in the recruiting process, bringing in ten new players for the offensive line.  The headliner may be Deshaun Smith (Jr./Hutchinson, Kan.) a transfer from Butler CC. He was a Preseason All-American for the Grizzlies as a sophomore after helping the Grizzlies win the 2008 NJCAA National Championship. He went 72-5 in high school and junior college with four state championships at Hutchinson HS and a junior college national championship.  The other transfer is Scott Powers (Jr.Sperry, Okla.)

Senior offensive lineman Ayo Ademiluyi started all 11 games at the offensive tackle spot for the Hornets.

24

from Northeastern Oklahoma A&M.  He was a high school teammate of Hornet Kevin Smart at Sperry HS and newcomer Dasor Horton at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M. The eight other newcomers are all high school signees. Running back For the first time since the 2002 and 2003 seasons, the Hornets will return a running back that has gained over 200 yards in a game.  Kevin Smart (Sr./Sperry, Okla.) was the leading rusher for ESU last season with 634 yards on just 112 carries.  His 5.7 yards per carry and 11 rushing touchdowns ranked third among MIAA rushing leaders last season. Smart earned honorable mention All-MIAA honors last season. He will be joined in the back field by Adrian Abner (Jr./Desoto, Texas), another back with 100 yard rushing days to his credit.  He gained 109 yards against Southwestern Oklahoma State last season after going for 115 yards at Nebraska-Omaha as a freshman.  Derwin Hall (So./Blue Springs, Mo.) is an All-American sprinter for the Hornet track team and has the second fastest time in school history in the 60m dash. The newcomer to the backfield is Dasor Horton (Jr./Oklahoma City, Okla.) a transfer from Northeastern Oklahoma A&M.  He was the eighth leading rusher in the nation last year for the Norse, gaining 1,065 yards in nine games.  He picked up 922 yards and 17 touchdowns in his final six games last year, including 140 yards and three touchdowns against eventual national champion Blinn.

Wide receiver Gone is honorable mention All-MIAA receiver Danny McEvoy, but a number of talented young players are ready to step up for the Hornets. Matt Coursen (Jr./Waverly, Kan.) and Brian Murphy (Jr./Lawrence, Kan.) are the veterans of the group, heading into their third year with the program. Coursen was the third leading receiver for ESU with 19 catches for 257 yards and a pair of touchdowns.  Murphy added seven catches for 61 yards on the year.  Shjuan Richardson (So./ Muskogee, Okla.) was the second leading receiver for the Hornets last year with 20 catches for 265 yards.  Another speedster, Richardson was a member of the ESU 400m relay team that placed ninth in the nation last spring. Andre Jones (Sr./Olathe, Kan.) is the only senior on the team after transferring to ESU from Butler CC.  He had a season’s best four catches for 36 yards against Central Missouri.  The next appearance in a game will be the first for the rest of the receiving corps, with five red-shirt freshmen, three true freshmen and a transfer filling out the group.

Tight End The Hornets have a good mix of experience and youth at the tight end position.  Tracy Hageman (Sr./Kingman, Kan.) is in his fifth year with the Hornets. He started with ESU as a quarterback and has also played the receiver and H-back position.  Adam Schiltz (So./Ponca City, Okla.) had an outstanding year as a true freshman. He was one of four Hornets with over 200 yards receiving on the season.

Quarterback ESU used four players at the quarterback position last season and seven players have lined up behind center for the Hornets in the last three years. Tyler Eckenrode (So./Houston, Texas) and Sheldon Smith (So./Oklahoma City, Okla.) were the only quarterbacks participating in spring drills for ESU and both have their own strengths.  Smith is very effective running the ball and had 136 rushing yards against Washburn.  Eckenrode is more effective with his arm, going 30 for 64 for 416 yards in his two full games as a starter before being sidelined with an injury.  The two combined to start five of the last six games at quarterback last year. Justin Greene (So./Mainsfield, Ohio) played four games for Clark Atlanta last season.  Jackson Bonnette (Fr./Corpus Christi, Texas) was the District MVP for Flour Bluff HS last season.

Sheldon Smith passed for 188 yards and two touchdowns last season as well as rushing for 286 yards on 72 carries.

Senior Kevin Smart carried the ball 112 times 634 yards and a team high 11 touchdowns during the 2009 campaign.


2010 Preview DEFENSE Eight of the Hornets opponents 49 touchdowns came on special teams or the direct result of ESU turnovers, while five more touchdowns and two field goals came on drives of less than 30 yards. Take away those points and the Hornet defense gave up just 25.6 points per game, which would have ranked fifth in the MIAA last season. ESU ranked third in the MIAA in total take aways behind National Champion Northwest Missouri and Mineral Water bowl Champion Missouri Western. Defensive Line This is one of the deepest and most experienced areas for the Hornets with six players that combined to start in the last six games of the year returning.  Daniel Webb (Sr./Ft. Collins, Colo.) and Casey Finlayson (Sr./Burlington, Kan.) are both in their fifth year at ESU.  Webb missed three games last year with an injury and would have ranked seventh in the MIAA last season in tackles for loss, but did not have enough games to qualify for the leaders. He was still 15th in the league in total sacks with 4.0 on the year.  Finlayson has missed just one game in his career.  Harold Ayodele (Sr./ Dallas, Texas) was the only Hornet to start all 11 games for the d-line last season.  He was fourth on the team in tackles with 64 last year.  Tyrone Weaver (So./Charlotte, N.C.) started five of the last six games at defensive end as a freshman.  Tim Chandler (So./Houston, Texas) found a home at defensive end, starting three of the last five games after making the transition from tight end at the midway point of last season. Dakota Hagler (So./ Gilmer, Texas) started four games and played in all nine conference games as a true freshman. Kennedy Ezimako (Jr./Round Rock, Texas) comes to ESU after ranking second on Lone Star Conference co-champion and NCAA playoff team Midwestern State with six quarterback hurries. Linebackers The Hornets return all three starters at linebacker as well. Three starters return led by honorable mention All-MIAA pick Nathan Linsey (Sr./Lebo, Kan.),

Senior linebacker Nathan Linsey is the team’s top returning tackler having recorded 82 stops last season and 7.5 tackles for a loss.

the only senior in the group.  Linsey ranked ninth in the MIAA in total tackles a year ago and tied for the league lead in fumble recoveries. Vince Harris (Jr./ Cincinnati, Ohio) tied Linsey for the league lead in fumble recoveries and was fifth on the team with 52 total tackles.  Matt Rosenhamer (Jr./Wichita, Kan.) is the other returning starter after splitting time between linebacker and defensive end his first two years at ESU. James Jones (Jr./Dallas, Texas) is in his fourth year with the Hornets. Taylor Beitler (Jr./Derby, Kan.) was the second leading tackler for Butler CC last season with 87 stops. Secondary This is the one area of the defense that was hit hard by graduation.  Only three players that started a game last year return, and all of them are cornerbacks.  Chris Woods (Sr./Midland, Texas) started six games in the defensive backfield after opening the year at wide receiver. He was fifth in the MIAA in interceptions with three in nine games played. He started 13 games for New Mexico State as a sophomore before transferring to ESU. Kameron Gee (Jr./Desoto, Texas) started six games last season at corner after seeing actino in all 11 games as a freshman.  Julian Dozier (So./Round Rock, Texas) started the final five games of last season as a true freshman.  The Hornets lost both starting safeties from last season, but return Derek Lohman (So./Alva, Okla.) who started as a true freshman in 2008 before redshirting last season.  Gerald Guerrier (Jr./Irvington, N.J.) came to ESU at the semester and should be in the mix at safety.  He started three games and played in 12 at New Mexico State as a sophomore before transferring to Hofstra. Special Teams The Hornets were just 17 of 25 on kicked extra points, went three of eight on two point conversions, only attempted four field goals with two makes, and were last in the MIAA in punt return average.  On the bright side Tyler Chilson (Jr./Topeka, Kan.) was an honorable mention All-MIAA selection at punter and ESU ranked third in the league in net punting. Punter

Linebackers Matt Rosenhamer (47) and Vince Harris (8) both recorded over 50 tackles last season.

Chilson is back after averaging 39.7 yards per punt as a sophomore. That ranks third all-time at ESU behind Academic All-American Pat Amon’s 41.9 in 2001 and Super Bowl Champion Kelly Goodburn’s 40.8 yard average in 1984. Kicker Dustin Andrews (Sr./Greenwood, Mo.) made both of his field goal attempts last season and connected on seven of his last nine PAT attempts after joining the team for the fifth game of the year.  He will be joined by three newcomers. Zane Guadagnaolo (Fr./Kennedale, Texas) was a first-team alldistrict selection last year for Kennedale HS.  Zak King (Jr./Shawnee, Kan.) made nine of 11 PAT for Highland CC last season and connected on four of eight field goals for the Scotties.  Brian Dorsey (So./Emporia, Kan.) comes to ESU after playing one season at Baker.  He was a back up for the Wildcats, but hit 28 of 31 PAT as a senior for Emporia HS in 2008. Returner Brian Murphy (Jr./Lawrence, Kan.) was an honorable mention All-MIAA returner as a freshman when he averaged 12.8 yards per punt return and 19.9 yards per kick return. He set a school record with an 82 yard punt return against Western State in his first game as a Hornet. Shjuan Richardson (So./Muskogee, Okla.) had 21 kick returns for an 18.0 yard average and returned two punts for a 13.0 yard average last season.   Schedule The schedule sets up nicely for the Hornets this season.  After opening up at Southwestern Oklahoma State (1-10 last season), ESU plays host to former MIAA member Missouri Science and Technology.(4-7 last season). The Hornets four conference opponents on Jones Field at Welch Stadium went a combined 16-27 last season, with a combined road record of 4-15 in MIAA play.

Defensive back Kameron Gee had 35 tackles as well as one fumble recovery and three pass break-ups.

Over the past 95 years, the MIAA has gained the reputation of being one of the top NCAA Division II conferences in the nation. MIAA student-athletes have won 12 NCAA team championships and, since 1964, 153 individual national titles. The MIAA currently conducts championships in eight sports for men and eight for women. For the men, champions are crowned in football, cross country, basketball, indoor and outdoor track & field, baseball, tennis and golf. The women compete for titles in volleyball, cross country, soccer, basketball, indoor and outdoor track & field, softball, golf and tennis. The MIAA turned a new page on July 1, 1992, when the NCAA Division II conference changed its name from the Missouri Intercollegiate Athletic Association to the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association. The decision to make the change originated in 1989, when Pittsburg State University and Washburn University became the first schools outside the state of Missouri to gain membership in the MIAA. The conference was first organized in 1912 with 14 member institutions. Of those original members, the University of Central Missouri, Truman State University, and Northwest Missouri State University still remain a part of the MIAA. The first change in membership came in 1924, when the MIAA reorganized to include only the five regional Missouri state colleges: Central, Truman (at the time known as Northeast Missouri State), Northwest, Southeast Missouri State University and Southwest Missouri State University (now Missouri State). Over the next 56 years, three schools joined the membership: the Missouri School of Mines (later the University of Missouri-Rolla) in 1935, Lincoln University in 1970, and the University of Missouri-St. Louis in 1980. The 1980s brought the biggest changes in the conference. In 1981, Southwest Missouri State University

opted to move to NCAA Division I and the MIAA appointed its first full-time commissioner, Ken Jones, in July. He would be in the position for 16 years, retiring in 1997. Former Gulf South and Metro commissioner Ralph McFillen succeeded Jones, serving 10 years before his retirement in 2007. Jim Johnson succeeded McFillen in July of that year. Southwest Baptist University brought membership back to eight schools in 1986, before the major expansion of the conference in 1989. Pittsburg State, Washburn, Missouri Southern State College (now University) and Missouri Western State College (now University) °© formerly members of the Central States Intercollegiate Conference °© began competition in the 1989-90 season. Southeast Missouri State left the MIAA following the 1990-91 season to move on to NCAA Division I, and was replaced by Emporia State University in the 1991-92 season. In August 1991, Judy Willson was hired as the MIAA’s first full-time sports information director. She left in 1994, and was succeeded by Matt Newbery, formerly the assistant sports information director at Pittsburg State. He became the assistant to the commissioner for media relations in 2005. Kellen Coleman replaced Newberry as Director of Communications for the 200809 season. A third full-time staff member was added in 2005, as former Emporia State track and field athlete Natasha Oakes was hired as the assistant to the commissioner for compliance. Larry House joined the staff in August 2007 as coordinator of external affairs. The current membership of the MIAA is at 11 schools, with the departure of Missouri-St. Louis in 1996 and Missouri-Rolla in 2005, the forfeiture of membership by Lincoln in 1999 and the addition of Fort Hays State University in 2006 and the University of Nebraska-Omaha in 2008.

“YAPS, YELLOW JACKETS AND HORNETS” Here come the Hornets! Go Hornets Go! How did Emporia State University really get to known as the Hornets? A casual conversation between Vic Trusler and an Emporia Gazette reporter named Cecil Carle led the establishment of the Hornets as Emporia State’s mascot. In the early 1930’s, the Teachers College students were called the Yaps. It is uncertain why the students were called that except popular legend suggests that because they were teachers, they did a lot of “yapping.” In any case, most of the students were not fond of the moniker. Trusler, a legendary figure on campus in the 1930’s, and coach at Roosevelt High School, and Carle, without design, were instrumental in getting the name changed. Carle was seeking information on the official name of the Roosevelt High School team. Trusler suggested he call the Roosevelt team the Bluejackets since they wore blue jerseys. In that momentous conversation, Trusler further commented that the students at the Teacher College really did not like being called the Yaps. Instead he suggested they be called the Yellow Jackets because the men wore yellow sweaters with black stripes on the sleeves. And, like the insect, they had quite a sting to them. Nothing further was said, but the next Gazette article about the Teachers College referred to the students as Yellow Jackets. The evolution of the name Yellow Jacket to Hornet is almost anti-climatic. A lack of newspaper space forced the Yellow Jacket to be shortened to Harnet. For a while the two names were interchanged and used throughout the state. To further cement the Hornet tradition, the football team received new uniforms in 1936. They were almost entirely black prompting some to suggest that the team be called the Mud Daubers, which are yellowjackets, which are hornets, which game more sting to the legend. “Corky” first appeared on the scene in 1934 when Paul Edwards, then a sophomore, made what he thought was a more representative figure of the school mascot than the strereotyped hornet being used. He entered it in a contest and finished second. Not to be discouraged Edwards redrew his hornet and showed it to Ray Maul, then manager of the Memorial Union, who thought he could “use the buzzard.” The Corky figure would soon become popular on campus. Edwards liked his Corky so much he patented the bug in 1936, which dated its 50th anniversary to 1986. During Homecoming 1987, Edwards dedicated a Corky the Hornet statue he sculpted and is now on display in the Memorial Union Bookstore. A large number of Corky’s cropped up beginning in 2003 during a Parade of Corkys throughout Emporia and many of them are still on display around campus and in the community.

FACILITIES

Over the last several years, Emporia State has implemented several projects to upgrade their facilities. The projects continue to give Emporia State some of the finest venues in NCAA Division II. The Emporia State Athletics Weight Room was renovated and expanded over the summer into one of the top facilities in the MIAA. The renovation invrease the area of the current “Hornet’s Nest” from 2,460 square feet to over 4,300 square feet and includes state of the art equipment. When the current Hornet track and field weight room, located on the lower level of the HPER Building, is added to the total ESU will have over 6,000 square feet dedicated to athletic strength and conditioning. Opened in 1937 and dedicated in 1960, Welch Stadium sits just north of beautiful Lake Wooster in the heart of the ESU campus. Crowds as large as 10,000 fans have watched games when bleachers were added in each end zone. Permanent lighting makes it possible to televise games and play at night. The facility also has been used extensively by individuals outside the University community. Welch Stadium is the home field of the Emporia High School football team and has hosted the Kansas Special Olympics, the 1998 and 2004 Kansas Shrine Bowl. The 1995, 1999 and 2006 NCAA Division II National Track Championships were held here as well. A Super Turf playing surface was installed at Welch Stadium in the fall of 2005. The field is named Jones Field at Welch Stadium in honor of the W.S. and E.C. Jones Testamentary Trust, the lead contributor to the project. Zola Witten Track at Welch Stadium was resurfaced over the summer of 2005 as well. The resurfacing prepared ESU as the host site of the 2006 NCAA II men’s and women’s outdoor track and field national championships. The facility hosted the same event in 1995 and 1999. The Hanna Clubhouse at the Trusler Sports Complex, just north of the ESU campus, has been in place since 2007. The facility houses locker rooms for baseball and softball, as well as coaches offices. It gives Hornet student-athletes on the teams a place to call home before and after games and practices. The second floor of the building serves as an observation deck.

Throughout NCAA Division II programs, White Auditorium, built in 1940 as a product of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Work Projects Administration (WPA), is regarded as one of the premier basketball arenas in the nation. The 70 year old facility was upgraded during the fall of 2008 with a new scoreboard and video board as well as a new color scheme on the arena floor and the throughout the entire building. The approximately $270,000 improvement project was funded with City of Emporia general fund and Convention and Visitors Bureau, along with contributions from ESU, the Walter S. and Evan C. Jones Trust, Emporia Sports Promotions, Inc., and Sunflower Gymnastics. In the fall of 2009 the original wooden balcony seats were replaced with modern black plastic seats, that include cup holders. In addition to White Auditorium, the ESU basketball and volleyball teams also have a practice facility in the Health, Physical Education and Recreation Building on the Emporia State campus. The practice facility in the HPER underwent a major renovation during the summer of 2008. A new lighting system was installed as well as a the playing court getting resurfaced to match the arena floor at White Auditorium. ESU dedicated Milton Tennis Courts in 2004 in honor of former coach George Milton. Milton was a coach at ESU from 1966-99. The facility, located west of the HPER Building on campus, is used by the men’s and women’s tennis program and it hosted the Hornet women’s first ever trip to the NCAA tournament in 2005. The Hornets also play matches at the Emporia High School Courts in northwest Emporia. The EHS complex has 12 lighted courts, allowing for men’s and women’s matches to be played a the same time. Jones Park in northwest Emporia is the home of the Emporia State cross country program. The park provides practice facilities and the host-site for the ESU Invitational, a meet hosted be ESU each year. Jones Park was the host site for the 2009 MIAA Cross Country Championships.

HORNETS IN THE COMMUNITY

Emporia State student-athletes didn’t just provide the Emporia community with exciting sports action throughout the year, the Hornets also provided the community with over 2,100 hours of community service during the 2009-10 year. Working with organizations like the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Special Olympics, Rebuilding Together, Abundant Harvest Food Kitchen and several local elementary schools, the Hornets contributed over 2100 hours of community service. From painting homes for the disadvantaged, cheering on Special Olympics competitors, collecting canned foods and to recycling, Emporia State student-athletes could be seen all around Emporia lending their time. Our relationship has been and will continue to be very strong with Emporia. Our teams have been a constant in the community. The teams pay attention to the community perceives them and it is important that we maintain our great relationship.  MIAA Game Environment Award of Excellence In response to the creation of the Division II game environment initiative, ESU created “The Sportsmanship Statement”, which is presented by a student-athlete either live, via audio recordings, or filmed and shown on a video board to the fans before the start of home football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, softball and baseball contests. The statement encourages fans to cheer for their team while also showing respect to other players, fans, coaches and officials. In addition to the Sportsmanship Statement, the ESU SAAC also created the Sportsmanship Creed, which is displayed in each team’s locker room. The Creed was designed to not only convey what it means to be a student-athlete at the institution, but to address how student-athletes should conduct themselves within the campus, community and on the field of play by reaffirming the ideas of Honor, Outstanding, Respect, Nobility, Enthusiasm, Teamwork and Support, better known as H.O.R.N.E.T.S. MIAA SAAC Mentor of the Year Dr. John Rich, Associate Dean of the ESU School of Business and the Faculty Athletics Rep at ESU, has assisted student-athletes to maintain their eligibility by reviewing NCAA rules they must follow and helping them complete their eligibility paperwork. He is constantly in contact with student-athletes either in the classroom or at sporting events. This year, he suggested the initiation of a chapter of the national athletic honor society, Chi Alpha Sigma, at ESU. Not only did he help organize the charter chapter and its initiating ceremonies, but he also made a financial donation to pay for the entry fee into the national organization. Dr. Rich was President of the MIAA from 20012003, and he has been a member and chair of many different MIAA committees. After attending an NCAA leadership conference with two student-athletes, he helped organize the first Senior Prom at ESU. It is greatly due to his efforts that this event continues successfully even after the originating student-athletes have graduated and moved on. Graduation Rate Differential Award The MIAA uses the graduation rate information from the Department of Education to compare its student-athletes academic success with that of the general student body. ESU had the graduation rate highest above its student body rate with 70 percent of its 2002-03 freshmen on athletically-related aid earn a degree within six years, which was 26 percentage points above the general student body rate.

MEMORIAL UNION RENOVATIONS Construction is currently underway on an $18.5 million renovation of ESU’s Memorial Union. The total project is slated to be complete by fall of 2012. The Memorial Union was constructed in 1925 in memory of the students who fought and died in World War I. Additions were constructed in 1958, 1963 and 1972. Students approved, 739-181, a fee increase to help pay for the project. A Lawrence architectural firm, Treanor Architects P.A., designed the renovation plan following a series of meetings with ESU students, staff and Emporia residents. Included in the renovation: • Creation of new student lounge space and performance area • Renovation of the current student cafeteria • An addition on the east side of the building featuring a new entrance, information center and Admissions office • Redesigned entrances to the building’s west, south and east sides • Redesigned meeting spaces and traffic patterns inside the building • Environmentally-friendly improvements to the building’s heating, ventilation and cooling systems

MEMORIAL UNION RENOVATIONS The process to get the renovation going has been a long one with the first meeting about the project occurring in 1999. Still, the effort didn’t start in earnest until the fall of 2007. The current renovation plans aim to make the union into a “living room space” for ESU students, ESU President Michael Lane said. The Memorial Union has a long and storied history on the ESU campus. Originally opened in 1925, the union was built as a tribute to the students who fought and died in World War I. Since then, the union has had four additions. “I think it’s really critical to our current and future students,” Lane said. “It really is supposed to serve as a functional meeting place, a social place, a gathering place, an eating place for our students as well as our faculty and staff.” “We want to upgrade the windows and lighting to make them environmentally friendly,” Lane said, “as well as more efficient heating and cooling that will be environmentally friendly. The finishes will be done with environmentally friendly materials as well. We want to make the building as green as we can as well as comfortable for our students, faculty and staff.” In addition, the university is looking to move its admissions office to the union. “(The union) will become the university’s front door,” Lane said, “and it needs to be attractive to current and prospective students.”

ESU ADMINISTRATION Athletic Director Kent Weiser

Under the leadership of Director of Athletics Kent Weiser, Emporia State has consistently competed at the national level in NCAA Division II on the field, in the classroom and in the stands. In the last five years, three different Hornet programs have competed in four national championship games, culminating with the Lady Hornets 2010 NCAA Division II Women’s Basketball National Championship. ESU has ranked in the top 50 of nearly 300 D-II schools in each of the last five years, highlighted by an MIAA best 11th place finish in the 2007-08 Director’s Cup Standings. In the classroom, Emporia State is ranked in the top 20 in the nation in producing Academic All-Americans in the 21st century. The athletic and academic success has combined to place every ESU program in the top 25 in national attendance at some point during Weiser’s ten year tenure. The Hornets have won 23 MIAA regular season team championships and have finished in the top 20 of Division II in eleven different sports under Weiser’s leadership. ESU Athletics had five top 20 team finishes in 2009-10 as ten of 15 programs made the NCAA post-season. In addition to the Lady Hornets national championship in basketball ESU also picked up top 20 finishes by the men’s and women’s indoor track & field, softball, and women’s outdoor track & field teams. In the classroom ESU ranks in the top 20 in the nation among Division II schools with 16 Academic All-Americans in the 21st century. ESU regularly places over 50 percent of its student-athletes on the A.D.’s Honor Roll and has had an NCAA Top VIII Award winner under Weiser. Nine coaches hired by Weiser have been named MIAA Coach of the Year in their respective sports. During the 2003-04 school year Emporia State was the first NCAA Division II institution to advance to the postseason in football, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball and softball with 11 of ESU’s 15 programs competing in the NCAA postseason. Major capital improvements, such as the ESU Athletics Weight Room, Hanna Baseball/Softball Clubhouse, Jones Field SuperTurf, the artificial turf infield at Glennen Field, new scoreboards at the Trusler Sports Complex and White

Follow ESU Athletics on Facebook and Twitter

Auditorium and the resurfacing of Witten Track have been completed under his watch with 100% of the nearly $2 million coming from donors. These improvements have helped maintain those facilities as some of the best in the nation at the Division II level. His leadership of ESU’s fund raising efforts led to the largest single gift for athletics scholarships in school history, a $1.25 million contribution in 2004. He helped establish the first department-wide shoe and apparel contracts in NCAA Division II, when ESU partnered with adidas in 2000. ESU is still just one of just two NCAA Division II athletic programs in the nation to be a Direct Sales Partner with adidas. The agreement stretches buying power of all 15 Hornet programs and is similar to programs designed for NCAA Division I institutions. While other institutions were faced with reducing sports, Weiser spearheaded the effort to add women’s soccer as a varsity sport, increasing participation opportunities for women at the University for the first time since 1980. His efforts helped ESU receive a grant from the NCAA in support of expanding administrative opportunities for women and minorities. Weiser has been a guest panelist at numerous NCAA and NACDA meetings, including for the Division II Strategic Alliance Matching Grant Enhancement Program and the NCAA Leadership Institute for Minority Males.
