2009 S EASON P REVIEW ore experienced, more skilled, and more smarter is what describes the 2009 edition of Ferris State University women’s volleyball as the Bulldogs set their sights on a Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) championship and a NCAA Division II Tournament berth. “We have all the makings to have a great season but performing at a consistently high level will be the key,” said 14th-year FSU head coach Tia Brandel-Wilhelm. “I believe our players have a better grasp of how our structure fits into the team concept.” But with a year of experience and a rigid spring season under their belts, the Bulldogs are poised to bounce back from last season’s 16-13 record. FSU welcomes back 12 letterwinners from last year, which includes five starters and its regular libero. The Bulldogs also return more than 85 percent of their kills production, better than 83 percent of their blocks output, and at least 70 percent of the squad’s service aces. “We have a lot of players back who received court time last season,” said Brandel-Wilhelm. “While that’s a positive, we’re looking for those who can be consistent in their play. The ladies have performed with consistency in practice and the spring scrimmages so now they just need to do the same in our matches.” A notable change from this season’s team compared to the 2008 squad will be in the Bulldogs’ style of play. “We will be able to generate more offense than in the past few years,” stated Brandel-Wihelm. “A lot of our success this season will depend on our offense to score more points. We have considerable depth and a number of offensive weapons with which to choose from. “We will need them because this year’s schedule is one of the toughest we’ve ever had. We’re sure to be tried and tested by our non-conference opponents,” added Brandel-Wilhelm. SETTER Ferris State’s setting position will likely be the key to the Bulldogs’ 2009 success. A new face will occupy the position this fall as both of last season’s regulars, Andrea Rich and Candice Marut have graduated. Both concluded their careers with over 1,000 assists apiece. Samantha Fordyce, who redshirted a season ago, is expected to be the starter following a productive spring. MIDDLE BLOCKER Ferris State’s most productive position could well be at the net as the Bulldogs return five blockers from last season’s squad. Highlighting the group should be as one of the conference’s top blocking tandems in senior Kristy Gilchrist and junior Arielle Goodson return. Gilchrist hopes to make the most of her final year of collegiate competition after placing second among the 2008 team’s leaders in blocks (79), third in kills (233), and fourth in service aces (23) en route to attaining honorable mention all-conference accolades. The 2007 All-GLIAC Second-Team pick recorded nine double-digit kill match efforts a season ago while pacing or sharing the team lead in kills on seven occasions. She enters this fall currently ranking tied for 27th place on FSU’s alltime leaders list with 48 service aces. A rapidly improving player, Goodson turned in another highly-productive campaign last fall with single-season highs in about every statistical category. A starter in 26 of the squad’s 29 matches, Goodson led the Bulldogs for the second consecutive season with a career season-best 92 blocks. The 2008 All-GLIAC Second-Team honoree netted 16 block solos and 76 block assists as both represented team highs. She also placed second on the 2008 squad with a career-high 262-kills total and averaged a team second-highest 2.43 kills per set. Goodson appears well on her way to etching her name in the program’s annals for blocking by ranking 23rd alltime in solos (37) along with 30th in both assists (145) and total rejections (182). Senior Sarah Lark should also play a key role in the Bulldogs’ success on the court following her most productive season in a Bulldog uniform last fall. Lark’s 151 kills in 29 outings marked the team’s fifth highest total and set a career single-season high as did her .208 hitting percentage. She also generated a career-best 52 blocks in 2008 to place fourth on the squad’s blocking leaders list. As a result of her experience and leadership, Lark has been tabbed as a co-captain for the 2009 team. Danielle Hamilton returns for her junior year after playing in 10 matches last season while sophomore Mallory Kopa was on the court in five encounters. Anne Sutton, who was redshirted last fall, could also figure in the equation. OUTSIDE HITTER If there’s an area which may raise a question mark on the surface it probably lies within the outside hitting position as Ferris State is limited experience wise. With the competition on the Bulldogs’ schedule this season, this position will be vital to the team’s offensive production and subse-

M

quently, its success on the floor. The veteran of the youthful group is senior Katie Edwards, who hopes to equal if not surpass her last season’s statistical numbers. Edwards has proven capable of being a capable offensive threat as evidenced by her hammering a squad-high 274 kills in 29 matches last season. She also led the team with a 2.49 kills per set average and chalked up double digits in kills 16 times. Edwards either led or shared top team honors in kills on 14 occasions last fall and is eager to cap off a fourplus collegiate career with a flourish. Joining Edwards on the outside is sophomore Ashley Huntey, who wound up tallying a team sixth-most 118 kills to go with a team third-best 256 digs and a squad fifth-highest 22 service ace output in 29 matches. Amanda Kettlewell also returns to the fold for her senior year and has been hampered by injuries throughout her career. Nevertheless, she posted 28 kills in 24 outings a season ago to rank seventh among the squad’s leaders. Sophomore Karen Thompson was right behind Kettlewell in kills (26), but was able to showcase her versatility with a squad sixth-most 87 digs while being listed seventh in both service aces (11) and total blocks (13). Redshirt frosh Aly Brecht, an up-and-coming player, is expected to push the others for playing time. LIBERO/DEFENSIVE SPECIALIST The Bulldogs welcome back experience and quality depth in this area which in turn will make multiple options available to the FSU coaching staff. Sophomore Lisa Tobiczyk is back as the incumbent at libero following a noteworthy display in her initial collegiate campaign. Tobiczyk amassed a team-leading 374 digs and a squad-best 3.28 digs pet set in 29 appearances last season. She recorded double-figure dig totals in 21 matches, which featured five 20 or more digs in a contest. Tobiczyk also proved to be effective in serving with a team second-most 34 aces to go with a squad-leading .945 serve percentage. For her efforts, she honored as a co-winner of the 2008 team’s Bulldog Award for displaying the most heart and desire. An outstanding performer in the classroom, Tobiczyk not only landed a spot on the GLIAC All-Academic Team last season but also was recognized as the team’s FSU President’s Award recipient for maintaining the squad’s highest cumulative grade point average. A pair of talented juniors, Dana Ruttle and Whitney Rupp, are sure to challenge Tobiczyk for playing time and the level of competition will be a benefit to all. Ruttle, a third-year junior, dispelled the sophomore jinx last season by making the most of her on-court experience. A 2008 FSU Coaches Award co-recipient, Ruttle ended up third among Ferris State’s leaders a season ago in service aces (24) and fourth in digs (164). Ruttle, a 2008 GLIAC All-Academic Team pick, collected at least 10 digs in nine 2008 matches. She will team up with Sarah Lark to serve as co-captains for the upcoming campaign. Rupp saw action in 20 outings last fall while attaining GLIAC AllAcademic Team accolades for the 2008 season. NEWCOMERS Armed with arguably its best recruiting class in several years, Ferris State is in the process of laying a solid foundation for future success. The combination of this year’s fourmember group with last season’s class will have a significant impact on the program’s fortunes. Don’t be surprised to see the newcomers battle the regulars every step of the way.

COACHING ACCOLADES

Head Coach ◆ 14th Season (Alma, 1990) ia Brandel-Wilhelm and the Ferris State University women’s volleyball program have become deeply intertwined as the Bulldog head coach gets set to embark on her 14th season at Ferris State in 2009. Since becoming the program’s fifth head coach in June 1996, BrandelWilhelm has resurrected the program by guiding the Bulldogs to five NCAA Division II National Tournament appearances, which includes four of the last six years. Success and Brandel-Wilhelm have become synonomous as the 2007 Ferris State squad recorded the program’s 10th consecutive winning campaign as Bulldogs reached double-digits in victories for the 27th consecutive year with a 20-10 overall record. In 2004, Ferris State claimed its ninth Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Championship after winning the league’s annual postseason tournament for the first-time ever. FSU also reached the NCAA-II Great Lakes Regional Tournament under Brandel-Wilhelm in 2002. During the 1999 campaign (Nov. 5), Brandel-Wilhelm registered her 200th career coaching victory in a 3-1 home league win over Grand Valley State. Ferris State also finished runner-up at the GLIAC Tournament for the third time in the Brandel-Wilhelm era during the 2001 season. She notched her 300th all-time victory in 2004 and enters the 2009 season ranked 20th nationally in winning percentage among Division II active coaches with a 387-158 (.710) career mark in 15 seasons as a collegiate head coach. Brandel-Wilhelm’s 387 career wins also is 23rd highest on the Division II active coaches total victories list. Through her hard work and dedication, Brandel-Wilhelm continues to earn her place among the nation’s most respected collegiate coaches. Faced with the task of rebuilding the Bulldogs’ tradition-rich program in her first season, Brandel-Wilhelm proceeded to direct the Bulldogs to a 19-12 overall record and a top 25 national ranking. In the last eight seasons, Brandel-Wilhelm has coached Ferris State to an impressive 199-86 overall record (.698). She was tabbed as the GLIAC’s Coach-of-the-Year for the second time in 2002 after directing Ferris State to a secondplace finish in the league’s North Division. Brandel-Wilhelm’s coaching resume demonstrates a penchant for winning. Prior to joining FSU, she served as head coach for three seasons (1993-95) at West Virginia Wesleyan College in Buckhannon, W. Va. Under BrandelWilhelm’s tutelage, the Bobcats racked up a 118-20 overall record, captured three West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC) and regional titles, made two NAIA national tournament appearances, and placed fifth at the 1995 NCAA Division II Championships. Brandel-Wilhelm left WVWC with an active streak of 80 conference victories. In 1993, she was selected WVIAC and NAIA Mid-South Region Coach-of-the-Year after guiding her team to an impressive 40-11 overall mark in her initial campaign. Prior to being named head coach at WVWC, Brandel-Wilhelm served as an assistant coach for one season and a graduate assistant for two. She also assisted with West Virginia Wesleyan’s track and softball teams. She earned a master’s in business administration from WVWC after receiving her undergraduate degree in business administration and psychology from Alma (Mich.) College in 1990. Brandel-Wilhelm, who competed in both volleyball and track at Alma, was an all-conference first-team scholar athlete. While attending Alma, she coached volleyball for two years at Alma (Mich.) High School. A native of Whitehall, Mich., Brandel-Wilhelm presently serves as Ferris State’s senior women’s administrator and is accredited as a level II coach by the United States Volleyball Association. Brandel-Wilhelm, a member of the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA), also holds positions on the NCAA National Volleyball and AVCA Division II Volleyball Coaches Committees. Brandel-Wilhelm is married to Dale Wilhelm and resides in Big Rapids along with her daughter, Ivie, and stepson, Allen. The newest addition to the family is Isaac, who was born July 16, 2007.

E WIGLEBEN S PORTS A RENA – H OME

OF THE

ince moving into Ewigleben (pronounced A-VAH-glave-in) Sports Arena from the Health and Physical Education (HPE) Building in 1981, Ferris State has firmly established a home-court advantage in its volleyball-only facility. The Bulldogs have posted an impressive 271-73 (.788) overall record at the Ewigleben Sports Arena and compiled six undefeated home seasons (1984, ‘87, ‘89, ‘90, ‘96 and ‘02). ........................................................ The arena, located on the southwest end of campus, is named after former FSU President Dr. Robert L. Ewigleben. The 12th president in the University’s history, Ewigleben served in the position from 1971-83. With a seating capacity of 600 on the arena’s west side and a string of Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Championship banners on the east side, the Sports Arena has transpired through the years as an exceptionally challenging venue for Ferris State’s opponents. Adding to the hostile environment are the vocal and highly-supportive fans. Capacity crowds at Ferris State are nothing new as the Bulldogs led the nation in NCAA Division II volleyball attendance in 1989 while ranking seventh nationally in 1990 and 15th in 1997. The volleyball arena is a part of FSU’s Sports Complex, which also houses the modern 2,400-seat Jim Wink Arena for basketball and the Ewigleben Ice Arena, the home of Ferris State’s Division I men’s ice hockey program. Within the Sports Complex structure is a varsity student-athlete weight room, athletic training facilities, a renovated multipurpose room, locker rooms and athletics department staff offices. In an on-going effort to attract top-quality student-athletes, a wood-surface playing court was installed at Ewigleben Sports Arena in the spring of 2001 and additional renovations were made to the appearance of the facility. The Ewigleben Sports Arena has been the site of NCAA Division II Regional Championship Tournaments in 1982, ‘87 and ‘89. In both ‘87 and ‘89, Ferris State won the regional title and advanced to the NCAA Division II National Championships. In 13 seasons under current head coach Tia Brandel-Wilhelm, the Bulldogs are 12433 overall at home. FSU is 84-31 in GLIAC outings and 40-2 in non-conference home play under Brandel-Wilhelm.

BULLDOG VOLLEYBALL FACILITIES he Ferris State women’s volleyball program has built an unmatched tradition since moving into the Ewigleben Sports Arena in 1981. In an effort to uphold FSU’s rich history, a campaign was launched in the spring of 2004 to renovate and upgrade the program’s existing locker room facility. The project, which was completed in the summer of 2004, included the addition of 20 custom-built wood lockers, a study lounge and video room for daily utilization. The renovation also entailed the installation of storage cabinets and new flooring to enhance the facility’s interior appearance. The “Bulldog Rally” campaign funded a significant portion of the project through private donations, which were earmarked towards the renovation. The campaign solicited private financial support to provide for the construction and installation of the custom-built lockers. The upgraded locker room, combined with FSU’s volleyball-only playing surface in the Ewigleben Sports Arena, continues to enhance Ferris’ ability to attract high quality student-athletes and provides current team members with the resources necessary to compete at the NCAA Division II level.
