The A-Sun consists of a blend of the Southeast’s most dynamic and prestigious private universities and public institutions in the region; the conference commits itself to Building Winners for Life. The experience for a studentathlete in the A-Sun is supported by the entire university community, from coaches to faculty, and from the CEOs to the athletic and academic support staff. With All-America selections, National All-Academic honorees, teams and individuals qualifying for and advancing in NCAA Championship play, Atlantic Sun student-athletes achieve at the highest levels of collegiate athletics.

Membership The A-Sun is a blend of the southeast’s finest private and most dynamic state schools. Belmont Bruins - Nashville, Tenn. Campbell Camels - Buies Creek, N.C. East Tennessee State Bucs - Johnson City, Tenn. Florida Gulf Coast Eagles - Fort Myers, Fla. Jacksonville Dolphins - Jacksonville, Fla. Kennesaw State Owls - Kennsaw, Ga. Lipscomb Bisons - Nashville, Tenn. Mercer Bears - Macon, Ga. North Florida Ospreys - Jacksonville, Fla. USC Upstate Spartans - Spartanburg, S.C. Stetson Hatters - DeLand, Fla.

Athletic Excellence Men’s basketball garnered unprecedented attention with upsets of nationally-ranked Kentucky and Southern Cal, plus a win at Cincinnati in a four-day span. The feats earned a full-page feature from USA Today, as well as notoriety from ESPN.com, The Sporting News and Rivals.com. The league added wins against SEC foes Georgia and Alabama during the course of the year. Belmont captured the A-Sun Tournament title for the third straight season, becoming the first A-Sun school to ever do so and enters 2008-09 as one of just six schools in the country to have won its league’s championship in each of the previous three seasons. Among the company Belmont keeps in this achievement are the two finalists from the NCAA Tournament, Kansas and Memphis. Lipscomb, Belmont’s Nashville rival, provided a pair of memorable moments on the baseball diamond. The Bisons secured their first NCAA Tournament appearance by defeating Gardner-Webb in the A-Sun Championship game 9-8 in a 15-inning marathon, the longest conference title game in Division I history. Then, they drew Georgia for their opening NCAA Championship game, and despite allowing four runs in the first inning, came back to stun the eventual national runner-up Bulldogs 10-7. The league’s four newest members, Kennesaw State, North Florida, Florida Gulf Coast and South Carolina Upstate all enjoyed successes in 2007-08. Kennesaw State captured its first women’s soccer tournament championship and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history. The Owls also added titles in men’s indoor and outdoor track and field. North Florida won its first A-Sun title of any kind, erasing a nine-stroke deficit in the final two days to dethrone East Tennessee State in men’s golf. Florida Gulf Coast and South Carolina Upstate each made its first year in the conference memorable, combining to win three outright regular-season titles and sharing in two others. The Eagles finished atop the standings in volleyball, baseball and tied for the softball title. The women’s hoops team, one year removed from the Division II national title game, won 22 games including an opening round game in the WNIT, the first postseason win for an A-Sun school in ten years. The Spartans turned in an unblemished women’s tennis campaign for their first-ever A-Sun title in any sport.

Academic Excellence For the second straight year, all 11 institutions placed at least 50 percent of its student-athletes on the All-Academic Team. The membership also established a new overall record of 59 percent of all student-athletes earning All-Academic status during the 2007-08 academic year. Belmont proved to be the class of the conference in capturing the All-Academic Trophy for the sixth time in seven years with 70.3% of the student-athletes earning All-Academic status. Justin Hare, one of the most celebrated Bruin student-athletes, earned the conference’s male Scholar Athlete of the Year for the second straight year, in addition to multiple national scholar honors.

DUANE AND COOKIE SWANSON The longtime residents of Ft. Myers are the owners of Raymond Building Supply and have supported a range of worthy causes throughout South¬west Florida for many years. Mr. Swanson is a founding board member of the HillmyerTremont Student Athlete Foundation, which helps FGCU attract and assist deserving FGCU student athletes through scholarship support.

Off the field of play, providing scholarship support for student-athletes is extremely important to the Swanson’s. Duane and Cookie have established the Swanson Fam¬ily Scholarship Fund. The new scholarship funding doubled the amount that was previously available for baseball scholarships. Duane Swanson Sr. and his wife, Cookie, have donated generously for baseball scholarships and the construction of a baseball field. Recently Mr.Swanson’s company, Raymond Building Supply, also gave a generous donation for The Outdoor Sports Complex. The roughly 20,000-square-foot building features offices and operations for soccer, baseball, softball, umpires and concessions. “Duane and Cookie have played a critical role in the development of Athletics at FGCU and continue to play a vital role in our move to Division I,” said FGCU Interim Athletics Director Jo-Ann Nester “We would not be able to grow at the pace we have without supporters like the Swanson’s.” “We wouldn’t be here without him,” said head baseball coach Dave Tollett said. “When you have a place like this, as nice as this, it certainly helps in recruiting.” The couple is happy to support FGCU’s Athletics program. “The Southwest Florida community has been a great place for me, both personally and professionally,” said Mr. Swanson Sr. “Cookie and I believe strongly in giving back to this community. We both enjoy our relationship with the FGCU Athletics Department, the coaches and studentathletes, and we saw the need to help the program as it was beginning.” The Swanson’s believe sports benefit students on and off the field. “We believe in the role that athletics can play in both helping a young person grow and in shaping the character of a young person,” said Mr. Swanson.

City of

2008 A-SUN REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS

In the late 1800s, Tootie McGregor and Thomas & Mina Edison began the beautification of Fort Myers. Imported Royal Palms were planted along Riverside Drive, later renamed McGregor Boulevard. These magnificent Royal Palms, some towering at 75 feet, give the City of Palms its nickname.

Incorporated in 1886, Fort Myers is the center of a popular tourist area in Southwest Florida and the seat of Lee County. It is located about 120 miles south of Tampa at the meeting point of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caloosahatchee River. Fort Myers was the frequent winter home of Thomas Edison and is the current home of the Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins spring training camps. The first known resident of what is now Fort Myers was Manuel Gonzalez, a Spaniard from the province of Asturias, who came via Cuba in the 19th century. Fort Myers, built in 1850 as a military fort to fend off Seminole Indians that were massacring the area's few settlers, was named after Col. Abraham C. Myers, who was stationed in Florida for seven years and was the son-in-law of the fort's establisher and commander. In 1858, after years of elusive battle, Chief Billy Bowlegs and his warriors were persuaded to surrender and move west, and the fort was abandoned. Billy's Creek, which flows into the Caloosahatchee River and runs between The Beau Rivage Condominiums and Alta Mar, was named after a temporary camp where Billy Bowlegs and his men awaited ships to take them west. The fort was abandoned until 1863 when a small number of Federal troops re-occupied the fort during the Civil War. In 1865 the fort was attacked unsuccessfully by a very small group of Confederates. After the war, the fort was again deserted. The first settlers arrived in 1866, but it wasn't until 1882 when the city experienced a significant influx of settlers. By 1885, when Fort Myers was incorporated, it was the second largest city only to Tampa on Florida's west coast south of Cedar Key - even larger than Clearwater and Sarasota, also growing cities at the time. Fort Myers first became a nationally known winter resort with the building of The Royal Palm Hotel in 1898. The real spark of the city's growth was the construction of the Tamiami Trail Bridge built across the Caloosahatchee River in 1924. After the bridge's construction, the city experienced its first real estate boom and many Famous People that have called the subdivisions sprouted around the city.

FORT MYERS IS..... • The home of the Thomas Edison and Henry Ford Winter Estates • The home of the Fort Myers Miracle baseball club of the Florida State League, and is the spring training locale for the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox. • The home of three minor league sports teams.

Fort Myers 2008 A-SUN REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS

THIS IS FGCU

The Florida of days long past, with unspoiled white sand beaches, exotic wildlife and lush subtropical foliage, still can be found on The Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel in southwest Florida. Known as Florida’s tropical island getaway, this paradise is a favorite vacation spot because of its feel of old Florida that no longer exists in many areas. In addition to the beautiful natural environment, active travelers are pleased to find an abundance of golf, tennis and watersports, as well as some unusual attractions. Lee County embraces nine distinct areas, each with its own unique character. Best known are Sanibel and Captiva islands, connected to the mainland by an alluring three-mile-long causeway and, to each other, by a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it bridge at Blind Pass. Sanibel is known worldwide for its shelling. More than 400 varieties of shells litter the beaches, and particularly can be found after an especially high or low tide. For most visitors, however, shelling is merely a delightful excuse to enjoy hours of sun worshipping along some of the finest shoreline in North America. Interesting shops, restaurants, and art galleries dot the road from the Sanibel Lighthouse to Tarpon Bay Road. On the way to Captiva Island, located toward Sanibel’s northern tip, the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge is home to many exotic species of birds and plants. A four-mile drive with access to walking and canoe/kayak trails offers outstanding wildlife viewing opportunities. The refuge occupies more than half the island. The main attraction on Captiva is that there are none. Many people wile away the hours in one outdoor endeavor or another. It was here that Anne Morrow Lindbergh, wife of the famous aviator, wrote her best-selling book, “A Gift from the Sea.” Further south, Estero Island, home of Fort Myers Beach, long has been recognized as one of the “world’s safest beaches” because of its gently sloping shoreline. The sand is particularly soft and white, akin to powdered sugar. Especially suited for family vacations, Estero offers every imaginable water toy, from windsurfer to catamaran and parasailing. Numerous marinas operate boating and fishing charters. Local restaurants benefit from the catch, which generally includes red snapper and grouper. Anyone suffering from island fever can find instant relief by paying a call to the “City of Palms,” in Fort Myers, with its charming downtown historic district and expanding hub of urban activity that extends to shopping malls, restaurants, and nightclubs. Inventor Thomas Edison and his friend, automobile manufacturer Henry Ford, decided early on to make their winter homes in Fort Myers. Today visitors tour their neighboring estates with Edison’s botanical gardens, laboratory and museum. During Edison’s 46 winters in Fort Myers, he and his wife Mina hosted well-known house guests like industrialist Harvey Firestone, President Herbert Hoover and cereal king John Harvey Kellogg. Henry Ford purchased his quaint home, “Mangoes,” in 1916 to spend the winter months visiting Edison. The two properties were separated by a fence the two families named “The Friendship Gate.” Other in-town attractions include the Southwest Florida Historical Museum, downtown river cruises, and the Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium. Shell Factory in North Fort Myers and Eden Vineyards, the country’s southernmost bonded winery, to the east are also popular stops. For the sports minded, public golf courses and tennis courts make southwest Florida some of the best playing turf in the state.

Florida Gulf 2008 A-SUN REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS

Florida Gulf Coast University, with its innovative programs, technology friendly campus, and outstanding faculty, is one of the most exciting educational environments in America. FGCU, a member of the State University System of Florida, is a comprehensive university created to address the educational needs of the rapidly growing Southwest Florida population. Classrooms showcase state-of-the-art multimedia instructional systems that feature Internet access, document cameras, and audio and video presentations. Florida Gulf Coast University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate, baccalaureate, and master’s degrees. FGCU received initial accreditation by SACS in 1999. The history of Florida Gulf Coast University is a visionary one built on support for providing higher education opportunities in Southwest Florida. Area citizens began the initiative to bring a state university to this part of Florida, and their early requests were quickly supported by elected officials at the local and state levels. With support from the Florida Board of Regents and the full Florida Legislature, a new university was born. The Board of Regents formally recommended in January 1991 the development of Florida’s tenth state university to be located in Southwest Florida; and, in May 1991, then Governor Lawton Chiles signed the legislation authorizing the new university. Southwest Florida’s support for a university was never more evident than during the next year, when private landowners offered more than 20 gift sites for the university campus. In early 1992, the Board of Regents selected the site offered by Ben Hill Griffin III and Alico, Inc. of 760 acres of land located just east of Interstate 75 between Alico and Corkscrew Roads.

FGCU

Roy McTarnaghan was named founding university president in April 1993. Initial staff were hired that summer, and the university’s academic and campus planning began in earnest. Plans for the first phase of campus construction were unveiled in February 1994; and shortly thereafter, the Florida Legislature named the institution as Florida Gulf Coast University. The vision for the university was one which would address emerging higher education needs for the 21st century, including the use of technology in the learning/teaching process and multi-year contracts as an alternative to faculty tenure. The Board of Regents approved an agreement in May 1995 with the United Faculty of Florida allowing FGCU to offer a contract system for faculty. Campus groundbreaking was held on November 28, 1995, with more than 600 people participating in the celebratory event for Southwest Florida. With aggressive academic program and campus development schedules slated to culminate in an opening day of August 25, 1997, the early staff and faculty were busy meeting deadlines every month. Inaugural degree programs were approved by the Board of Regents in March 1996. The FGCU Foundation, a private fundraising arm of the university, gained extraordinary financial support for an institution which at the time could only be seen on a drawing board. Faculty throughoutthe country were attracted to FGCU for the opportunity to offer higher education in new and innovative ways. The first FGCU student, Mariana Coto, was admitted in January 1997; and she participated in the historic ribbon cutting on the university’s August 25, 1997 opening day. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools awarded FGCU accreditation candidacy later that year, and a comprehensive self-study was launched. The first commencement was held in May 1998, with 81 FGCU graduates. In August 1998, the first phase of student housing opened. In September, Founding President McTarnaghan announced his intention to step

The Board of Regents launched a national search held during the spring and summer for FGCU’s second president; and the university received official notification in June 1999 that it had achieved, in record time, accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. In July 1999, the Board of Regents named William C. Merwin as FGCU’s second president. President Merwin arrived on campus for his first day on September 16, 1999.

UNIVERSITY BASEBALL Compliance

2008 A-SUN REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS

The NCaa Rules

Florida Gulf Coast University is committed to full compliance with all Atlantic Sun Conference (A-Sun) and National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA) rules and regulations. Therefore, Florida Gulf Coast University is responsible for insuring its studentathletes, coaches, faculty and staff, alumni, donors, boosters and friends adhere to the rules of the A-Sun and NCAA. The loyalty and support demonstrated by our fans, alumni and friends is unparalleled. Please help Florida Gulf Coast University position itself for greatness today and in the future by reviewing this summary of NCAA rules. I. Representatives of Athletic Interests. A “representative of FGCU’s athletic interests,” or booster is anyone who: • Have participated in or to be a member of an agency or organization promoting the institution’s intercollegiate athletics program; • Have made financial contributions to the athletics department or to an athletics booster organization of that institution; Be assisting or to have been requested (by the athletics department staff) to assist in the recruitment of prospects; • Be assisting or to have assisted in providing benefits to enrolled student-athletes or their families; or Have been involved otherwise in promoting the institution’s athletics program.

THIS IS FGCU

Compliance is a wide-ranging area, covering all functions of the athletics department including - but not limited to - recruiting, financial aid, eligibility, playing seasons, awards, extra benefits and rules education. As a member of the NCAA, FGCU is responsibile for the actions of its studentathlets, staff, alumni, boosters and fans. The Compliance Office coordinates, monitors and verifies adherence to all NCAA and Atlantic Sun regulations. We are dedicated to providing educational programs and interpretive support to ensure that all individuals involved with our athletics program understand and meet FGCU’s compliance expectations.

The NCAA stipulates that once an individual has been identified as a “representative” of Florida Gulf Coast University’s athletic programs he or she retains this status forever. This is true even if the individual no longer contributes to the athletics program. II. Recruiting. Only coaches and athletic department staff can be involved in the recruiting process. Athletic representatives are prohibited from contacting a prospective student-athlete or members of his/her family by telephone, letter or in person for the purpose of encouraging participation in athletics at Florida Gulf Coast University. Please contact the coaching staff if you know of a prospect that may have the interest and ability to participate in intercollegiate athletics at Florida Gulf Coast University. The coach can then take appropriate action. III. Prospective Student-Athlete. A prospective student-athlete is a person who has started classes for the ninth (9th) grade. In addition, a student-athlete who has not started classes for the ninth grade becomes a prospective student-athlete if the institution provides such an individual (or the individual’s relatives or friends) any financial assistance or other benefits that the institution does not provide to prospective students generally. IV. Extra Benefits. An extra benefit is any special arrangement by an institutional employee or a representative of the institution’s athletics interests to provide a student-athlete (or a student-athlete’s relative or friend) a benefit not expressly authorized by NCAA legislation. Extra benefits would include, but are not limited to: • Cash or loans in any amount • Co-singning or arranging a loan • Gifts or free services (airline ticket, restaurant meals, etc.) • Use of an automobile • Rent-free or reduced-cost housing • Money for, or a guarantee of, bail or bond • Employment of a student-athlete at a rate higher than the wages paid for similar work •Payment to a student-athlete for work not performed Your commitment to helping Florida Gulf Coast University comply with the letter and the spirit of the rules and regulations of the A-Sun and the NCAA is greatly appreciated.

UNIVERSITY BASEBALL 2008 A-SUN REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS

2008 SEASON IN REVIEW

The 2008 season for the FGCU Eagles set a standard of excellence that all of Dave Tollett’s team strive to achieve. The Eagles finished the year with a 38-15 record, third most for any season in the short 7 year history of the program. The Eagles, who were slated to finish eleventh out of twelve teams in the Atlantic Sun Conference, finish their 2008 campaign with a regular season championship.

After shattering records for a team in its first year in the Atlantic Sun, Florida Gulf Coast racked up the hardware with Jason Peacock (Player of the Year), Richard Bleier (Pitcher of the Year) and head coach Dave Tollett (Coach of the Year) winning the league’s top three individual awards. The Eagles became the third team in A-Sun history to win a regular-season championship in their first year in the league and the first to win the title in the one-division alignment. At 25-8, the Eagles established the record for the most conference wins by a program in their first year in the A-Sun, breaking the record set in 1999 when Jacksonville finished its first year at 22-8. Bleier, a junior from Davie, Fla., was a unanimous selection as the Pitcher of the Year and also earned a spot on First Team with a unanimous vote. He led the A-Sun in ERA (2.19), innings pitched (90.1) and complete games (four). He shared the top spot in wins with seven and ranked fourth in strikeouts with 76. Peacock, a senior from Bartow, Fla., finished with the sixth-highest batting average in A-Sun history, producing a .434 mark while reaching base at a .525 clip. He increased his production during conference play, hitting .466 with a .566 on-base percentage. All told, FGCU saw eight of its players earn some level of recognition. In addition to Bleier and Peacock, reliever J.J. Crumbley and outfielder Ozzie Borrell made the First Team. Pete Woodworth, who tied Bleier atop the A-Sun with seven wins and freshman second baseman Mikel Alvarez landed on the Second Team. Alvarez, right-hander Richie Erath and left-hander Chris Sale all earned spots on the All-Freshman team. Crumbley was 6-2 with five saves on the year and had a 1.50 ERA in 24 appearances. Crumbley was selected as the only relief pitcher on the team. Borrell finished second in the league in doubles and led FGCU with 54 RBI. He was one of two players to start all 53 games for FGCU this season. Head Coach Dave Tollett was named Atlantic Sun Coach of the year after guiding the Eagles to one of the most successful seasons in A-Sun history. The Eagles 25 wins are tied for the third most wins in conference history. Tollett was named Coach of the Year after leading the first year program to an outright championship while setting numerous league records on the way. Pete Woodworth and Mikel Alvarez were each second team selections. Woodworth, a sophomore, was twice selected as Atlantic Sun pitcher of the week and finished tied for second in the league with 78 strikeouts. Alvarez, who was also selected to the All-Freshman team, recorded a school-record 22 game hitting streak and finished with a .345 batting average. He was one of three A-Sun freshmen to receive 2nd team All-Conference honors. Sale posted a 3.47 ERA in 21 appearances and fanned 43 batters in 36.1 innings. He recorded an amazing 6-1 strikeout to walk ratio in conference play. Erath became the first Eagle to receive the A-Sun pitcher of the week award after leading FGCU to an 8-0 win over UNF in the first conference series of the year. He limited the Ospreys to just two hits in 8.0 innings. He finished the year with a 2-1 record and 3.62 ERA in 27.1 innings. 2009 BASEBALL MEDIA GUIDE
