2009 Season

Bucs future looks promising in 2009 spring season ETSU men’s golf team has an abundance of talent as team hopes to make record 21st trip to NCAAs

The ETSU men’s golf team enters the 2009 spring season with a lot of momentum and high expectations after making a record 20th trip to the NCAA Championships a year ago, and earning a national ranking as high as 14th in the fall of 2008. The Buccaneers have been one of the nation’s topranked teams for over three decades, and appear poised to continue that success in the spring of 2009. Head coach Fred Warren’s squad looks promising, as he returns five experienced veterans and three talented freshmen, despite graduating two Irish seniors including Cian McNamara (Limerick, Ireland) and 2008 Atlantic Sun Conference champion Gareth Shaw (Lisburn, Northern Ireland), who was a second team All-American and A-Sun Player of the Year. The Bucs roster will get a substantial talent boost yet again this year from 2008 A-Sun Conference Freshman of the Year and A-Sun first-team selection Rhys Enoch (Cornwall, England). In fact, the sophomore has already made good on his potential this season, when he captured his first collegiate championship in the fall at the Shoal Creek Intercollegiate, posting his season low of 69 in the second round of that event. Enoch was later named Atlantic Sun’s Golfer of the Month in September and ultimately finished tied for first on the team with a stroke average of 73.0. Meanwhile, junior Seamus Power (Waterford, Ireland) matched Enoch’s team-low for stroke average, as the 2007

A-Sun individual champion continued his strong play in the fall and looks to improve even more in the spring. The Bucs return lone senior Jordan Findlay (Fraserburgh, Scotland), who finished sixth on the squad in stroke average this past fall, while bringing a wealth of experience and leadership to the team. In addition, sophomore Paul O’Kane (Castledawson, Northern Ireland) also comes into the spring with a lot of improvement in his game, as he ranked third on the team in stroke average during the fall and enjoyed an 18th place finish in the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate. Along with O’Kane, fellow sophomore Simon Doherty (Belfast, Northern Ireland) hopes to return from an injury to provide even more depth to the Buccaneer roster. As for the newcomers to the program, highly regarded freshmen Michael Stewart (Troon, Scotland), Devin Komline (Dorset, Vermont) and Peter Wilson (Locust Valley, New York) only bolster the team’s talent level. In fact, Stewart finished fourth on the team in stroke average during the fall, while Komline played in two of the Bucs three events during the fall, and Stewart played in all three. The Bucs will once again face a daunting schedule this spring, a slate that will pit them against the best teams in collegiate golf.

2009 Season

and the

SoCon Championships

The Buccaneers captured the Southern Conference men’s golf championship 17 times after joining the league in 1979 -- the most by any conference member. ETSU was dominant from the beginning, winning five straight titles from 1979-1983. Making the numbers even more impressive is the fact that ETSU did not have a men’s golf team from 1984-86. Most recently, the Bucs won six straight titles from 1996 to 2001, and bid farewell to the SoCon with a championship in 2005. The Bucs won eight of 10 titles during the '90s and began this decade by winning the 2000 and 2001 championships. The Buccaneers won 12 of 15 championships. Along with the team accolades, many ETSU players have received conference honors. The Bucs have had 12 individual conference champions -- including Patrick Beste in 2000 and Chris Wisler in 1999. The Bucs joined the Atlantic Sun Conference in 2006.

The Bucs, who have now lost by one stroke in two of the last three years at this event, saw a four-shot lead evaporate on the 18th hole. Both ETSU and Coastal Carolina entered the third and final round two shots ETSU senior Rhys Davies collects his second straight Bank behind Wake Forest, but the Chanticleers of Tennessee Intercollegiate championship from Bank of took full advantage of Paul O’Kane’s Tennessee’s Roy Harmon (left) and The Ridges’ Rab Summers.

The other Buccaneer highlight on the weekend came from freshman Michael Stewart (Troon, Scotland). Stewart finished in the top-10 for the first time in his collegiate career, as he tied for sixth, firing an even-par 215. In just 11 years, the Intercollegiate has rapidly developed into one of the premier collegiate golf tournaments in the United States. Each year, the tournament has featured many of the nation’s finest teams and individual players. For example, the 2003 tournament featured 6 of 14 teams having participated in the 2001 NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championship, with all 14 teams participating in NCAA Regional competition in 2000. That year joining the host East Tennessee State Bucs, who finished ninth at the 2001 NCAA Championships, were Arkansas, Auburn, Clemson, Houston, Kansas, North Carolina, North Florida, Oklahoma, Pepperdine, South Carolina, Southern California, Tennessee, TCU and Wake Forest. In 2002, Wake Forest, North Carolina, TCU, Duke, South Carolina, ETSU, Tennessee, Auburn, Arkansas, Houston, and others participated in the event. In 2001, 16 of the 18 schools were ranked at the time of the event. Clemson won the first Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate at The Ridges in 1998 with a five-stroke victory over Georgia Tech. Clemson’s Jonathan Byrd scorched the course, firing a 9-under-par 207 to take the individual title by one stroke over teammate Lucas Glover. Another highlight of the 1998 tournament was the collegiate debut of 1999 U.S. Amateur champion David Gossett of Texas. The 1999 edition of The Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate at The Ridges was won by Oklahoma, who outdistanced Arizona by five strokes. North Carolina’s Max Harris shot a 5-under-par 211 to claim the individual title by two strokes. The 2000 tournament was won by TCU by three strokes over South Carolina. The individual medalist honors went down to the wire as South Carolina’s Johan Kok shot an 8-under-par 208, outdistancing ETSU’s Chris Wisler by one stroke. Team champions over the last six years include TCU (2001), Wake Forest (2002), Florida (2003), Tennessee (2004 & 2006) and South Carolina (2005), Virginia Tech (2007) and Coastal Carolina (2008). Individual champions of note include Bill Haas of Wake Forest, who took back-to-back titles in 2002 and 2003.

ETSU Men's Golf

2009 Season

Winning the Women’s Basketball The ETSU women’s basketball team went to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history after posting a program-tying 21-win campaign. The Lady Bucs stormed through conference play with an impressive 14-2 record and followed that up with three straight wins in the Atlantic Sun Tournament to receive the league’s automatic bid to the Big Dance. Along the way Michele DeVault and Siarre Evans received First Team All-Atlantic Sun accolades; head coach Karen Kemp was tabbed Coach of the Year for the second time in her career. Five Lady Buccaneer players were named A-Sun All-Academic, including TaRonda Wiles – who also was named to the All-Tournament Team. Joining Wiles on the tournament team were DeVault and Evans as well as Tournament MVP Latisha Belcher. As a team, ETSU ranked in the top 20 nationally in scoring offense (14th), steals per game (18th) and assists per game (19th); DeVault ranked 12th in three-point field-goal percentage and 23rd in three-point field goals per game. DeVault also set a new all-time record with 239 treys made for her career.

Men’s Tennis After winning the Atlantic Sun regular season and conference tournament for the second straight season, the ETSU men’s tennis team earned its sixth trip to the NCAA tournament. This time around the No. 7th regionally ranked Bucs added to its program’s storied history by advancing to the second round of the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history, defeating Notre Dame, 4-2, in Columbus, Ohio. Individually, junior Enrique Olivares earned All-America honors after becoming only the second Buccaneer to advance to the NCAA Round of 16, earning a final ITA ranking of eighth regionally.

Men’s Golf For the first time in school history, men’s golf became the only program at ETSU to ever compete in the NCAA Championships 20 times. Under the direction of head coach Fred Warren, the team built on its record number of NCAA appearances, while once again finishing with a trio of Top 20 national team rankings. In addition, senior Gareth Shaw was named PING All-American, marking the second straight year he has earned that honor.

Women’s Golf Women’s golf made history in 2007-08 by capturing the program’s first-ever conference title and earning its first trip to the NCAA Championships. The Bucs picked the perfect place to win their first Atlantic Sun Conference championship, doing so on their home course at The Ridges Golf and Country Club in Jonesborough. In addition, the Bucs watched sophomore Laura Jansone capture the A-Sun individual title as well, becoming the first woman to ever win a conference individual championship.

Olya Batsula Olya Batsula was awarded the National ITA/Cissie Leary Award for Sportsmanship, which goes to the women’s tennis player who displays inspiring dedication and commitment to her team and who enhances the team’s performance and exemplifies the spirit of college tennis. Batsula was also chosen by the Atlantic Sun Conference to be the A-Sun nominee for the 18th Annual NCAA Woman of the Year Award. Batsula was a first-ever four-time all conference selection and leaves her ETSU career with 179 career victories, which is the third best mark in program history. Off the court Batsula graduated Magna Cum Laude, in May of 2008, and was a four-time member of the ITA Scholar Athlete team. Also Batsula was always active in the community throughout her ETSU career, helping out with the Boys and Girls Club, the Children’s Advocacy Center, Girls Inc., Relay for Life, Special Olympics, and Toys for Tots. Even though Batsula was busy with academics and practices she still found time to give lessons to wheelchair-bound students and underprivileged kids. Batsula would even drive 20 minutes to Kingsport with racquets, balls and a net to give tennis lessons to kids who were interested in the sport, but had no one to teach them the game.

Enrique Olivares Current senior Enrique Olivares earned All-America honors after becoming only the second Buccaneer to advance to the NCAA Round of 16, earning a final ITA ranking of eighth regionally.

Shaw earned his second straight Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar award, becoming the first-ever ETSU player to be named to that list two years in a row. Shaw, who enjoyed his own successes on the course with three All-America selections, an Atlantic Sun individual championship, and a conference player of the year award, reached several impressive criteria to receive the award.

Jenny Knox Shattering school records was a common theme among the 2007-08 Buccaneer track /field team. Jenny Knox set a new time in the 100m, which resulted in her second consecutive appearance in the NCAA Mideast Regional. Knox also helped guide the women’s relay team to the Regional, and ended her career nationally ranked in the 100m as she finished the season 47th.

Yevgeniya Stupak Current junior Yevgeniya Stupak finished the 2007 season with an individual regional ranking of 14th, becoming the first-ever ETSU women’s tennis player to be ranked in singles and doubles regionally at the same time. After claiming 24 victories, including wins over No. 39 Yvette Hyndman of Georgia and No. 17 Amanda Taylor of Vanderbilt, Stupak became the first Lady Buc to qualify for the NCAA singles championship last May.
