MEN’S SOCCER HEAD COACH

JOSE ALONZO 16TH SEASON AT ETBU 2010 RECORD: 2-12-0 0VERALL RECORD: 169-109-8

2010

Jose Alonzo completed his 16th season as head coach of ETBU’s men’s soccer program in 2010. Alonzo joined the ETBU staff in 1994 to start the university’s men’s soccer program from scratch. Alonzo’s first team provided a glimpse of things to come in the program. The 1995 Tigers finished 19-3-0 and won the Big State Conference. In the two years after that, with ETBU moving to the NCAA Division II level and joining the Heart of Texas Conference, Alonzo’s teams won HOT North Zone championships in 1996 and 1997 with a combined mark of 31-9 those two seasons. ETBU’s move to the NCAA Division III ranks in 1998 forced the Tigers’ playoff goals to change somewhat, as ETBU competed in the National Christian College Athletic Association while becoming a provisional D-III member. The Tiger soccer program responded with its best three-year run in the history of the program -- a combined 60-12-2 mark over the three years that included back-to-back NCCAA national championships in 1998-99. The 1998 team still ranks as the best ever in the history of the program, with a 23-1-1 record that included the first of those two NCCAA titles. In 2000, ETBU was still ineligible for the ASC championship but finished 18-5-1 and made a third straight appearance in the NCCAA national tournament. But a rash of injuries at the end of the year cut short the Tigers chances of a third straight national title. ETBU’s first season as a full-fledged NCAA member in 2001 saw the Tigers finish short of 15 wins in a season for the first time in program history. The Tigers came back in 2002 with an 8-8-1 mark before falling to back-to-back five-win seasons in 2003-04. Overall, Alonzo has one of the most impressive resumes ever by an ETBU coach in any program on campus -- a 169-109-8 overall record (.591), three conference championships and two national championships. He also has an NCCAA National Coach of the Year honor, following his team’s 1998 national championship. Alonzo received a BBA in Marketing and a B.S. and M.S. in Agriculture from Stephen F. Austin State University. He added a teacher’s certificate in Spanish and ESL from the University of Texas-Tyler in 1991. In the spring of 2000, he was awarded his Masters in Spanish from Texas A&M University-Commerce. While attending SFA, Alonzo played soccer for four years while coaching the women’s team for a short time. He was an assistant coach at Marshall High School for three years, where he also taught ESL and Spanish. He was also a member of the Honduran National Basketball Team, an experience which allowed him to have two big thrills in his career: playing against the Harlem Globetrotters and meeting NBA Hall of Fame center Bill Russell. Besides coaching the Tigers, Alonzo also teaches Spanish at ETBU. Jose and his wife, Tami, have three children: Micah, Anna and Gabriel.

KENT REEVES

ATHLETIC DIRECTOR B.S.E., John Brown University M.S.E., Arkansas State University Entering his 14th year as Director of Athletics at East Texas Baptist University, Kent Reeves has presided over the Tigers’ transformation into a solid member of the NCAA Division III ranks. Reeves, who remains the winningest coach in two athletics programs at ETBU, originally stepped down as women’s basketball coach in 1997 to assume full-time duties as athletic director. He also was named the university’s first softball coach that year and laid the foundation for a program that has become one of the best in the nation annually. Under Reeves’ guidance as AD the department has grown from just five sports in 1997 to 10 in 2010, with men’s and women’s tennis set to be added in the fall of 2011. ETBU athletics programs have consistently competed for champion-

ships in the American Southwest Conference, with nine conference titles and 17 ASC division titles since joining the Division III ranks in 1998-99. ETBU teams have combined to make 41 conference tournament appearances since 1998, and the Tiger softball program claimed the university’s first NCAA national championship last spring. Facility upgrades have also been a staple of Reeves’ time as athletic director. Since 1997, ETBU has added new playing facilities for softball, football and soccer. Various upgrades and improvements have been added to each athletics program on campus over the last 10 years. Reeves arrived at ETBU as women’s basketball coach in 1987. When he decided to step down as basketball coach following the 1996-97 season, Reeves had directed the lady Tigers to an average of 20 wins per season in his 10 years as coach. He finished with 206 wins and his teams made nine NAIA postseason appearances. As softball coach from 1998-2000, Reeves built the program from scratch and culminated with the program’s first ASC championship in 2000. He assumed AD-only duties after that season but returned to the dugout in a pinch for the 2004 season. That year, the Tigers posted a program-record 41 wins. He then took another year off before returning for the 2006-07 seasons, finishing with a program-record 183 wins over six seasons. Reeves is active in the Marshall community, serving in the Marshall Lions Club as well as being a deacon at Central Baptist Church. He and his wife Mary Beth have two daughters: Kendra, who is married to Austin Skipworth, and Taylor, a recent graduate of Baylor University.

MEN’S SOCCER Academic instruction at East Texas Baptist University began in 1917 with the inaugural session of a two-year institution known as College of Marshall. The campaign to launch the college had begun in 1911 and was led by William Thomas Tardy, pastor of Marshall’s First Baptist Church. Tardy negotiated the purchase of 100 acres of the original K. M. Van Zandt family plantation for $25,000. Keeping 50 of the 100 acres on Van Zandt Hill in northwest Marshall, the college subdivided and sold the remaining property. Marshall’s citizens subscribed another $70,000, and the Baptist General Convention of Texas assumed control of the college, appropriating $40,000 for buildings and furnishings. The trustees applied for and received a charter from the State of Texas in 1912, and Thurman C. Gardner, an early day Baptist Training Union leader, became the first president in 1913. For the first building, Marshall Hall, contractors broke ground on July 5, 1915. Of neoclassical architecture and completed in 1916, Marshall Hall crowned the highest point in Harrison County. The robust building was a self-contained educational facility with a ground floor gymnasium, main floor administrative offices, laboratories, and library, third floor classrooms, and a chapel/theatre on the top floor. The first freshman class registered in 1917 under President Henry Eugene Watters (1916-1918). The college boasted a teaching faculty of nine members. By the academic year 1918-19, some 300 students were enrolled in either a junior college or an academy curriculum. With World War I raging, a student cavalry unit

2010

drilled regularly on the college grounds. New dormitories soon encircled the classic campus quadrangle. In 1924, Dr. Franklin S. Groner, the Secretary of the Baptist General Convention of Texas, conveyed the Baptists’ commitment to assume the college debt if the Marshall Chamber of Commerce would supply $12,500 annually for five years, enabling it to remain open. Leading the college during the trying days of The Great Depression, Dr. Franklin Groner (1928-42) assumed the presidency and instituted a permanent endowment program. In 1935, an additional 43 acres were purchased, including the land and buildings of the St. Joseph’s Boys Industrial Orphanage, some of which was converted to men’s housing. In 1938, Baptist layman and builder Fred Hale broke ground for Laura Groner Hall, a modern residence hall for women. A reduced replica of Mt. Vernon, the stunning structure stood complete in 1940, its austere construction having cost only $10,500. World War II robbed the campus of its men and resources. By 1943, only 137 students remained. In 1944, the trustees, making perhaps the most important decision in the institution’s history, asked the Baptist General Convention of Texas to elevate the college to four-year status and to change the name to East Texas Baptist College. A former pastor of First Baptist Church, Midland, Texas, Dr. Harvey Daniel Bruce (1942-1960), the college’s ninth president, oversaw a vigorous postwar enrollment and building boom. Veterans arrived on campus, many bringing their families, and enrollment briefly surpassed 800. Prefabricated war surplus family housing was erected on the campus perimeter. The college added Scarborough Chapel in 1948, which was built in the neo-Gothic style. Also added

MEN’S SOCCER were Feagin Hall, a new men’s residence facility; a cafeteria and student center; and additions to the women’s residence hall, which was renamed for Merle Bruce, wife of the college president. Two ornate, neo-classical buildings were added in the 1950s, Sanderson Hall (now Craig Hall) to house the laboratory sciences departments, and Harvey Daniel Bruce Hall as the new library/administrative complex. Keys Gymnasium was built in 1960. In 1961 a new women’s residence hall, named after Evelyn Linebery, with its long portico and roomy plantation-style architecture, was completed. Dr. Bruce labored to establish a liberal arts tradition, along with strong degree programs in Bible and religion. His administration’s crowning achievement came in 1957 when the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools granted accreditation to East Texas Baptist College. Under Dr. Howard C. Bennett as president (1960-76), the academic program established enduring credibility. Dr. Bennett, the former pastor of First Baptist Church, Kilgore, oversaw construction of the new Howard C. Bennett Student Center in 1973. Dr. Jerry Dawson (1976-85), who had been Graduate Dean at Southwest Texas State University, became the first professional educator to lead the college. By 1982, the postwar “baby boom” peaked and enrollment stood at 920 students. A spacious new president’s home replaced the stately residence that Drs. Bruce and Bennett had occupied. After the opening of the Mamye Jarrett Library in 1979, H. D. Bruce Hall became available for the Religion and Teacher Education departments. Married students occupied several new brick

2010

housing units. Charles Fry Hall for Men was opened. As age claimed some of the original college buildings, the older men’s dormitory, buildings of the old orphanage, and various frame and prefabricated structures were dismantled during the 1970s and 1980s. In 1984 the University Charter revision changed the institutional name to East Texas Baptist University. However, by 1985, enrollment gains had eroded. During the interim presidency of Dr. Harvey Lewis (1985-86), the University met various deferred maintenance and operating needs. The former president of two other Baptist institutions from 1961 to 1986, Dr. Robert Craig (1986-1992) launched a building program of unprecedented proportions, including the Fred Hale Business Building in 1988-89. Other subsequent construction projects were the Jenna Guest Music Building, the Louise Rogers Spiritual Life Center, now known as the Ornelas Spiritual Life Center; major additions to the Bennett Student Center, construction of the Clifford Nelson Murphy Science Hall, and the Mabee Housing Complex. The untimely death of Dr. Craig in March 1992, only two months prior to his announced retirement, was followed by the leadership of Dr. Bob E. Riley (1992-Present), who had been President of the Howard County Junior College District in Big Spring, Texas. Under Dr. Riley, the University experienced record student enrollments. The campus continued to develop under President Riley’s leadership with the 1995 completion of the Dean Healthplex and Ornelas Gymnasium.

MEN’S SOCCER

CORNISH FIELD ETBU’s soccer field, which opened in 2002, was christened Cornish Field in 2007 following a gift for facility upgrade from Harold and Joyce Cornish of Marshall. The lighted field, which began construction in 2000 and was open and ready for play to start the 2002 season, sits on the extreme northern edge of the ETBU campus adjacent to Ornelas Stadium, the Tigers’ football facility. The improvement to the facility included installation of permanent bleachers, concrete walkways, a retaining wall that will allow fans to bring their own lawn chairs and enjoy the games, and a wrought iron decorative fence on the south side of the field as well as updated fencing around the entire field. The entrance is bricked with a decorative archway bearing the name of the donor. Opened in 2002, the facility is accessible by a road -- Baker Boulevard, courtesy of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Baker -- that runs down the west side of Ornelas Stadium on the north end of campus. The soccer field runs east to west with bleachers to the south side of the field. The north side is used for team benches and scorers table. A platform over the scorers table is used for video. A large soccer scoreboard sits at the east end of the complex. Lights were added to the facility in the fall of 2005. The lights were purchased with a gift in honor of former Lady Tiger Brooke Adair, a 2000-03 four-year letterwinner at ETBU.

ORNELAS GYMNASIUM

ORNELAS STADIUM

Ornelas Gymnasium has served as the home for East Texas Baptist University’s volleyball and basketball teams since the facility was constructed in 1995. The construction was part of a dual project to expand from the existing athletic facility in Keys Gymnasium, which had served as the institution’s principal competition arena for decades. Included in the project along with the new gym itself was the Dean Healthplex, which was dedicated along with Ornelas Gym on Saturday, May 27, 2005, just in time for the first graduation ceremony to be held in the new facility. The 1,700-seat facility was built with a classic look of bowl-type seating, with three levels of seating extending down to the gym floor. The facility includes floor bleacher seats, reserved chairback and upper level general admission bleachers. As part of the complex that includes Ornelas Gym on the west and Keys Gym on the east is Dean Healthplex. Built with a gift from Ben and Mary Dean and opened on the same day as Ornelas Gym, the healthplex houses state-of-the-art equipment for physical fitness, such as treadmills, stationary bicycles, stair-masters and both free and machine weightlifting equipment. The Dean Healthplex also includes four racquetball courts. All Healthplex facilities are free and open to ETBU faculty, staff and students.

Ornelas Stadium has provided East Texas Baptist University with a top-flight game-day facility for football since the Tigers’ program was resurrected in time for the 2000 season after a 50-year absence. The Ornelas family of Tyler provided a gift that kick-started the stadium construction late in 1999, and the stadium was literally carved from the East Texas earth in less than a year. It wasn’t quite ready for the Tigers’ first scheduled home game against McMurry in early September, but by the time the second home game came around -- against Austin College on Oct. 7, 2000 -- Ornelas Stadium was ready to become the home of the Tigers. The stadium hosted only day games until the 2009 season, when lights were added to the facility to provide ETBU the option of scheduling night games. The facility remains one of the shining landmarks on the northern end of the campus, with Cornish Field for soccer just to the north of the stadium and Taylor Field for softball located just across Van Zandt Street to the south. The stadium grandstand has a capacity of 3,000, with general admission and standing-room only available on two sloped hillsides on either side of the grandstand.

TAYLOR FIELD

WOODS FIELD

Taylor Field is the home to ETBU’s softball program, which marched to the 2010 NCAA Division III national championship. The Tigers have had an unprecedented run of consistency in the ASC in softball, with 11 straight trips to the conference postseason tournament. During those 11 years ETBU has won five conference championships and six ASC East Division titles. The facility began as a gift from Earl and Louise Taylor and was constructed in time for ETBU’s first season of softball in 1998. The facility was upgraded in 2005 with a gift from Welby C. Edwards, with installation of a new two-story press box that also included a Lady Tiger locker room, brick dugouts and landscaping. Taylor Field’s dimensions make it a cozy park for hitters and pitchers alike. Distances to the foul poles down both lines is measured at 190 feet, with a distance of 210 to centerfield. The power alleys are 215 feet from home plate as well, making the majority of the facility a comfortable one for both ETBU and opposing pitchers. The softball team won ETBU’s first NCAA Division III national title in 2010, when the Tigers finished the season with eight straight wins in the NCAA Tournament and brought home the championship with a walk-off win over Linfield College on May 24, 2010 at the national championship tournament in Eau Claire, Wisc.

Woods Field has been the home to East Texas Baptist University baseball since the program’s inception in the mid-1960s. The facility has received a number of upgrades over the last few years. The latest of the upgrades, and the most dramatic, was the installation of lights just prior to the 2008 season that allowed for the first nighttime baseball in the history of the program. The facility has also received more upgrades since 2006. These upgrades include a remodeling of the Tiger bullpen, as well as additions and improvements to the outdoor batting cages. In 2005, the old metal backstop and dugouts were torn down and replaced with red brick. The chain-link backstop, which had surrounded home plate for years, was replaced by a dark netting which provides safety while allowing for improved sight lines for fans in the bleachers. Woods Field, with a short porch in left, has long been recognized as a hitter-friendly park. The ballpark especially favors right-handed hitters, with the left-field wall sitting just 325 from home plate. The distance to center field is 400 feet, while the right-field fence is a more comfortable 335 feet from the batter’s box.
