In 2012, Fresno State added new scoreboards at two of its athletic venues - Bulldog Diamond and the Student Horse Center. The new scoreboard at the Bulldog Diamond came as a result of a planned gift to the Fresno State softball program from Vonnie Fogard, a long-time season ticket holder and member of the Bulldog Softball Diamond Club. The new Daktronics LED matrix color scoreboard replaces the old matrix board that was first installed when Bulldog Diamond was built in 1996. Meanwhile at the Student Horse Center, the scoreboard is the first to ever be installed at an NCEA (National Collegiate Equestrian Association) Equestrian venue. The project was spearheaded by the Saddle Club, the equestrian team booster club, who raised all funding exclusively through private funds. The electronic scoreboard is a 5’ x 12’ Daktronics LED.

FRESNO STATE

FRESNO STATE GOLF FACILITIES With the wide array of golf courses in close proximity to the Fresno State campus, Bulldog golfers have the opportunity to refine their skills on Fresno’s finest courses, all of which offer a variety of challenging layouts and conditions. “Fresno State is fortunate to have the opportunity to play excellent golf courses within 25 minutes of campus,” women’s head coach Angie Cates-Moore said. “Having such a wide variety of courses to play affords us the opportunity to choose the course that will best prime us for the next tournament. This is a huge advantage for our players.” “We’ve got the short courses and the long courses. We’ve got hills, courses with big greens, small greens and

extremely fast greens,” men’s head coach Mike Watney said. “These are all conditions you must be familiar with to develop your game to its highest potential.” Fresno State golfers develop their potential by playing the following different golf courses regularly; Belmont country Club, Brighton Crest Country Club, copper River Country Club, Fort Washington Country Club, Fig Garden Club, Riverbend Golf Club, River Park Golf Center, Riverside Golf Course, San Joaquin Country Club, and Sunnyside Country Club. The men’s golf team will host the Fresno State Lexus Classic at Fort Washinton Country Club March 5-6 and the women will host their Fresno State Lexus Classic March 12-13 at Copper River Country Club.

RIVERSIDE GOLF COURSE

Built on hilly terrain, the Fort Washington course was redesigned by Robert Baldock in 1956. The narrow course with eucalyptus-lined fairways has a defined cut of rough that makes shot accuracy essential. The club was once the site of the final stage for PGA Tour Qualifying and has been a past host to the old Ben Hogan Tour.

The Riverside Golf Course was built in 1939 as a Works Progress Administration project and was designed by western architect W.P. Bell. Located along the San Joaquin River, the parkland style course features small greens and vast tree-lined fairways that stretch over gently rolling terrain. The course annually plays host to the Fresno City Championships.

COPPER RIVER C.C.

RIVER PARK GOLF CENTER

Designed by Bert Stamps, the Belmont Country Club was built in 1956 and was later redesigned by Bob Baldock and Bob Putnam. The course is flat with many trees and tight fairways. Hole No. 2, a 110-yard/Par 3 is well bunkered and plays over water.

The Copper River Country Club features an 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course designed by architect David Pfaff. The course, set up on the undulating terrain of the Sierra Nevada base, features water on seven of the 18 holes. Since no two fairways on this course are parallel, golfers are able to enjoy their round and the view of the mountains and clubhouse.

The River Park Golf Center is a practice and custom club fitting facility that features a lighted, all-weather driving range and a nine-hole, par 3 golf course. It also offers a video golf swing analysis, short game practice area and state-of-the-art club fitting service for nine major brands.

The Johnny Miller signature golf course at Eagle Springs was designed to rival the finest golf courses in the world. PGA Tour winner and internationally renowned golf course designer, a Miller designed every facet of the 18hole course, which lies in a Millerton Lake and Sierra Foothill setting, winding among oak forests and granite rock croppings. Opened in 1990, this award-winning golf course quickly grabbed the attention of Valley golfers with its top 10 ranking by California Golf.

Located in northwest Fresno, the Fig Garden Golf Club opened for play in 1958. The course, located in the river bottom of the San Joaquin River, has thousands of trees that provide golfers an opportunity to test their control over the golf ball combined with level fairways.

Designed by prominent golf course architect Gary Roger Baird, the Riverbend Golf Club opened for play in 1999. Located along the banks of the San Joaquin River, the course contains a number of valley oaks and water features while offering a scenic view of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Riverbend has served as host to a number of nationally recognized amateur and national tournaments and has hosted notable PGA and LPGA golfers Arnold Palmer, Peter Jacobsen, Craig Stadler, Nancy Lopez, Michelle McGann and Julie Inkster.

Built in 1906 by William P. Bell, the course was redesigned by John Steidel in 1990. The 18-hole course features small Bent grass greens and Bermuda grass fairways, with mature eucalyptus located throughout the course. Sunnyside once hosted the USGA Junior Amateur Championship.

FRESNO STATE HOPES FOR A SUCCESSFUL SPRING

WOMEN’S GOLF

WITH THE 2012-13 SEASON IN FULL SWING, THE FRESNO STATE WOMEN’S GOLF TEAM WRAPPED UP THE FALL SEASON WITH A TEAM TITLE AND ENTER THE SPRING SEASON WITH HOPES OF ANOTHER. The Fresno State women’s golf teamed opened the 2012-13 season with three top five individual finishes and one team title as they prepared for their first season in MW. The Bulldogs teed off the fall season at the Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic in Fort Collins, Colo. The ’Dogs then traveled to Sammamish, Wash. and competed in the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational at the Sahalee Country Club. Upon a hard battle on the Sahalee Country Club golf course, the Bulldogs continued to fight at the Cowgirl Desert Intercollegiate in Palm Springs. Their determination and will played an effect as they took home their first team title of the season. While in Palm Springs, the ’Dogs made a tournament record with a total score of 885. The Bulldogs took home more than just the team title as sophomore Madchen Ly finished in second place and junior Christine Uhalde finished in third place. Following their victory, the Bulldogs wrapped up the spring season with tough competition and extreme wind conditions at the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown. “The win in Palm Springs was very exciting and we hope to continue that success in the Spring,” head coach Angie Cates-Moore said. “We saw a lot of great competition in the Fall and played some tough courses. That experience will help us in the Spring. “

Sodersten, the lone freshman, is a local Fresno native and has proved to be an asset to the Bulldogs in just one season. Sodersten recorded her best tournament score at the Cowgirl Desert Intercollegiate after firing six over par and finished in a tie for fifth place. Sodersten additionally made the top 25 in two of the four tournaments she competed in during the fall. “We knew Hannah was going to have an immediate impact on our program,” said Cates-Moore.

The Bulldogs tee off their spring season at the Peg Barnard Invitational hosted by Stanford. The ’Dogs then trek to another three tournaments out of town, which include the Cal Classic at the Ruby Hill Golf Club, the Juli Inkster Spartan Invitational hosted by San Jose and the Anuenue Spring Break Classic in Kapalua, Maui. As the Bulldogs near the end of the spring season, they will host the annual Fresno State Lexus Classic at Copper River Country Club. The Bulldogs then wrap up the spring season at the MW Conference Championship in Rancho Mirage, Calif. The ’Dogs will face their MW foes and hope to bring home a championship title. “We have a very solid schedule traveling to Stanford, Cal, Hawaii etc,” Cates-Moore said. “We know what we need to work hard on to have success and I’m confident we will see those improvements pay off in the Spring.” The conclusion of the spring season will say a final goodbye to Senior Shaylee Yano. Yano fired her best score of the season at the Cowgirl Desert Intercollegiate where she posted a +12 over 7572-81. “Shaylee is such a competitor and we know she wants to finish her collegiate career on a high note,” Cates-Moore said. “If she focuses on the process and lets the results just happen it will be a good Spring for her. She has to be careful and not put too much pressure on herself or expectations. It’s hard to believe this is her last season. Her entire family have been a big part of our program since we started 9 years ago. Her older sister Whitney played for us as well and their family have been great supporters of our team. We will miss all of them.”

Bulldogs Ly, Hannah Sodersten and Christine Uhalde rank in the MW top 20 and each played in all 12 rounds of the fall season.

“She had great success in High School and the transition has gone smooth for her. She had a good Fall season, but it could have been better and she knows that. She is very dedicated and will work hard during the off season and will continue to improve this Spring. We are all happy she’s a Bulldog.”

2012

With a proven track record of strong leadership, integrity, sound academic values and athletics achievement, Thomas Boeh enters his 31st year of athletics administration, 18th year as an NCAA Division I-A Director of Athletics and eighth year at Fresno State, including leading the Bulldogs’ transition into the Mountain West Conference. In July of 2005, Boeh was charged to stabilize, reform and revitalize the athletics program at Fresno State. As a result of this charge, the Department of Athletics has been entirely restructured with a new senior administrative team. Special emphasis has been placed upon a consistent and value-based approach to decision-making, as well as clearly delineating areas of responsibilities with built-in accountability. Considerable attention has been directed towards creating a progressive studentathlete environment and strict adherence to welldefined NCAA compliance protocols and standards. New polices have been developed regarding student-athletes recruitment, oversight and welfare. The Student-Athlete Code of Conduct and Substance Abuse Educational and Testing Program have been reviewed and strengthened, and the Student-Athlete Advisory Council has been reenergized. Departmental and institutional protocols relative to admissions, financial aid and eligibility have all been restructured in conjunction with campus leaders. Fresno State’s student-athletes have benefited significantly from these measures and, in conjunction with enhanced support services, they have fostered a better-quality experience that is reflected in greatly improved Academic Progress Rates, fewer Code of Conduct violations and extensive community service activity. Additionally, all athletics fundraising activities have been consolidated within the new Bulldog Foundation and philanthropic gifts to Athletics have risen to record levels.

rankings. Since 2005, conference championships and advancement to NCAA Championship competition has been achieved in the sports of women’s basketball, track & field, women’s soccer, baseball, women’s golf, softball and men’s and women’s tennis, with four enjoying a Top-20 national ranking, and baseball capturing the 2008 National Championship. Additionally, Fresno State studentathletes have advanced to post-season competition in the sports of football, men’s basketball and equestrian. The success of Bulldog studentathletes led Fresno State to three Western Athletic Conference Commissioner’s Cups in a five-year span (2007-08, 2008-09 & 2011-12). Additionally, Sports Illustrated’s SI.com ranked Fresno State the nation’s 18th most accomplished NCAA Division I athletics program for 2007-08. Prior to his arrival in Fresno in July of 2005, Boeh spent the previous 10 years as the Director of Athletics at Ohio University, where he led the program to exceptional levels in numerous categories and earning numerous conference championships. In 2001, The Sporting News ranked Ohio’s department 32nd among the 115 NCAA I-A institutions, the highest ranking of any non-BCS program. The ranking included evaluations for competitive success, fan support, integrity and equity. Ohio earned an “A” rating in graduation rates and NCAA compliance and posted an eight-year high graduation rate of 73 percent in 2004.

Prior to his tenure at Ohio, Boeh served as Associate Director of Athletics for External Affairs at Northwestern University, overseeing areas such as development, marketing, ticket operations, sports publications, media services, game management and broadcast properties. Boeh also led the popular “Expect Victory” campaign, Northwestern’s firstever multimedia marketing effort. Preceding Northwestern, Boeh served the University of Maine as Senior Associate Director of Athletics for Administration and Development. He also spent time in a variety of roles with the Big Ten Television Network, The University of Illinois, and his alma mater, Loras College of Iowa. The Chicago-area native received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Physical Education with a minor in History at Loras in 1981, and a Master of Science degree in Athletic Administration from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana in 1988.

Under Boeh’s leadership, Ohio was extremely aggressive in its efforts to achieve gender equity and compliance with Title IX. Three women’s sports programs were initiated during Boeh’s tenure, and in 2004 The Chronicle of Higher Education reported that Ohio ranked second nationally among all NCAA I-A institutions relative to the equity of men’s and women’s sport program expenditures.

Fresno State Athletics has been working closely with a nationally renowned consultant, a broad-based President-appointed ad hoc committee, and the Office of Civil Rights to remedy all past gender equity issues and create at Fresno State a model Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) athletics program relative to Title IX compliance. One component of this effort is the addition of two new women’s sports; lacrosse and swimming & diving both began competition during the 2008-09 academic year. All athletics facilities have been evaluated and a 10year master plan, inclusive of the “Athletics Mall” and “Student-Athlete Village” has been developed and introduced to the community. Several projects have been completed to date, including a stateof-art aquatics venue, and construction scheduled for another cornerstone project, a sports medicine center.

Additionally, numerous women’s facilities were constructed; sports budgets were restructured and decision-making procedures were reorganized to establish what Boeh refers to as an “authentic gender-neutral environment.” Annual fundraising totals rose more than 500 percent and Ohio Athletics concluded the University’s Bicentennial Capital Campaign by exceeding its $10 million departmental goal.

Fresno State’s competitive level continues to be among the leaders in conference and regional play, and several teams have achieved national

In addition, Boeh served a term as the MidAmerican Conference (MAC) representative to the NCAA Management Council, the NCAA’s

2013

most prestigious governing body for athletics administrators. Boeh also served as the chair of the MAC Athletics Directors’ Group and member of the MAC Executive Council.

Some of the more visible changes on the Ohio campus during Boeh’s tenure were the facilities for student-athlete support services, practice and competition. In all, 44 facilities saw major renovation or new construction and Ohio’s athletics physical plant was recognized as being among the best and most efficient in the Midwest.
