The Department of Athletics at Appalachian State University believes in maintaining the intercollegiate athletics program as an integral part of the University’s overall program of education, with emphasis on and priority given to the high academic quality and standards and the complete development of the student. Appalachian State University provides opportunity and encouragement for student-athletes to progress toward degrees of their choice and to develop athletic abilities in an environment consistent with high standards of academic scholarship, leadership and institutional loyalty.  The Department of Athletics is committed to ensuring the general welfare of the student-athlete and to encouraging the highest standards of sportsmanship on behalf of student-athletes, the student body and the University’s supporters.  The intercollegiate athlete representing ASU is both a bona-fide student pursuing a degree program and an amateur competitor. Appalachian Athletics is committed to insuring equitable recruitment, participation and treatment of individuals including members of under-represented populations through its athletics administration, staff, coaches, programs and policies.  The University’s policy of non-discrimination represents a moral and ethical, not merely a legal, imperative.          The University has determined that its athletics program will meet the necessary qualifications, guidelines and funding to hold membership in Division I of the NCAA.  The athletics administration, the faculty athletics representative and the Athletics Council work together to insure that all teams and coaches follow the rules and regulations governing this division. A sound program of intercollegiate athletics should benefit the institution through its effects on students, alumni and the institution itself.  Specifically, it should maintain and improve the loyalty and esprit de corps of the student body, and in strengthening the pride and enthusiasm of the alumni; it should serve as a favorable public relations factor and provide benefits to the participants.

Appalachian State Mountaineers Bill Dicus Head Coach 20th season Campbell University The 2011-12 season marks Bill Dicus’ 20th year at Appalachian State University and his 18th at the helm of the men’s golf program. With a young squad in 2010-11, Dicus’ team surpassed its modest expectations in what was thought to be a rebuilding year. In March, sophomore Josh Nichols matched a program record with a 65 in the opening round of the Don Benbow/North-South Invitational and carried the Apps to their first tournament title since 2002-03 with a 36-hole tally of 585 (+17). Nichols cruised to a five-stroke individual win at the event, while Daniel Walsh tied for third place and two others notched top-20 finishes as well. That tournament was ASU’s third-straight top-10 finish in the spring as a mix of veterans and newcomers combined for a 301.3 stroke average on the season, the third-best in program history. Freshman Casey Komline made a splash in his rookie year, ranking third on the team with a 75.81 stroke average in 16 rounds to go along with a pair of top-10 finishes. In 2009-10, the head coach saw his hard work pay off as senior Casey Johnson won the Spring Hill Suites Intercollegiate and later placed second at the Mission Inn Intercollegiate. The senior graduated as one of the top golfers in the Southern Conference and one of the best in ASU history. Johnson graduated with four of the five lowest single-round scores in program history, as well as the best 54-hole tournament score (207). His stroke average is also the best in ASU history, at 74.79 spread over 112 rounds. (He narrowly edges Bern Gregory’s mark of 74.90.) The Apps placed in the top-10 in eight out of 11 tournaments for the season, including a third-place finish at the Mission Inn Intercollegiate. ASU’s 298.79 team stroke average in 2009-10 stands as the second-best in program history, behind only 2000-01’s 298.12. In 2008, Dicus led the team to a season-best finish of fifth place at the North-South Intercollegiate in Jacksonville, Fla. During his tenure with the men’s team, Appalachian has finished as high as fourth (in 2001) in the Southern Conference, one of college golf’s most prestigious conferences. Dicus led Bern Gregory onto the all-conference team in 2000 and also led the team to fourth place in 2001 in the Southern Conference. While at Appalachian, he also coached the women’s team for fifteen seasons. The Mountaineers placed second in the SoCon three times, placing behind only national-power Furman. Dicus also coached the league’s Freshman of the Year, Kelly Clements, in 1996. Dicus mentored two All-conference performers, Merryll McElwain (1994-96) and Brittany Winterton (1997). He led the Mountaineers to consecutive sixth-place showings in the very competitive SoCon Championship in 2006 and ‘07, the Apps’ best finish since 2003. A native of Honolulu, Hawaii, Dicus is a class A member of the Professional Golfers’ Associtation of America. He received a Bachelor of Science from Campbell University and has done post-graduate work at Appalachian. In addition to his duties at ASU, Dicus serves as a golf professional at Linville Ridge Country Club in Linville, N.C., one of the premier courses in North Carolina. The Dicus family is heavily involved in charity work throughout the High Country, as well. Dicus and his wife, Pepe, reside in Boone.

Appalachian State Mountaineers Heather Brown Head Coach Fourth season Appalachian State Heather Brown begins her fourth season at the helm of Appalachian State University women’s golf after leading the team to unprecedented success over the past two seasons. A rapidly-maturing team took giant steps in 2010-11, as the Mountaineers claimed their first team title since February 2004 at the Low Country Intercollegiate in March. Three sophomores earned the event’s top finishes, as Yue Xu carded a 147 (+3) to earn her second-career title while Kristina Boo and Rumbidzai Masamvu took the second and third places, respectively. The Apps notched five top-three team finishes in nine tournaments on the season and posted the lowest team score in program history (313.14) for a second-straight year. In a season full of team and individual accomplishments, Xu became the first all-SoCon honoree since 2006, Kristina Boo took over the career stroke average lead at ASU with a 79.26 and four different players combined for 21 top-20 finishes on the season. In 2009-10, senior Brooke Dehart and four freshmen recorded a pair of second-place finishes, at the Campbell Fighting Camel Classic as well as the Mimosa Hills Intercollegiate. It marked the first time that the Apps placed second or better twice in a season since 2001-02. Newcomer Yue Xu then single-handedly rewrote the record books with her performance at the Southern Conference Tournament. The freshman became the first ASU woman to win the event, with a three-stroke victory, which earned her freshman all-SoCon honors. Under Brown’s tutelage, Xu set ASU’s single-round record (69) and 54-hole record (69-72-76=217) at the SoCon Championship and the single-season stroke average at 75.6 (previously 77.8). All told, Xu placed in the top-10 in all six spring tournaments in 2010. Brown’s solid recruiting efforts began to pay off with team depth, as fellow newcomers Rumbidzai Masamvu (79.3) and Kristina Boo (80.4) ranked second and third on the team in stroke average for the season. In her first season at the helm, Brown’s Mountaineers posted four top-10 team finishes, including fourth place as the host team at the Mimosa Hills Women’s Intercollegiate. She helped Kerri Dice and Brooke DeHart to breakout seasons in 200809 as the duo shaved a combined four strokes off their averages from the year before. Under Brown’s guidance, Appalachian has posted 10 rounds of 305 or lower. Prior to her arrival, ASU had reached that mark just eight times in program history. Brown was tabbed to lead the Appalachian State University women’s golf program on Friday, May 16, 2008. Brown, a 1989 ASU graduate, brings 18 years of professional golf experience with her back to the High Country. From 2002-08, the Madison, Conn. native headed up the Golf Juniors program at Richter Park Golf Course in Danbury, Conn., where she mentored dozens of young golfers, coached high school golfers and taught several hundred private lessons on an annual basis. Additionally, Brown helped lead the Danbury High School girls team to a state championship in 2004-05. Prior to her time in Danbury, Brown served as a golf professional throughout Connecticut at Tamarack Country Club from 1994-95 and 1998-2001, Rolling Hills Country Club from 1996-97, Cabarrus Country Club from 1992-93 and Klein’s Driving Range from 1995-96. As a student-athlete, Brown played for ASU head coaches Tom Adams and Peter Rucker from 1984 to ‘88. She was both the captain and team MVP in 1988. Her former teammate, Angie Ridgeway, is the women’s golf coach at Southern Conference-rival Wofford College. Brown replaced Bill Dicus, who coached both the Mountaineer men’s and women’s programs the previous 13 years.

Appalachian State University is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Boone, N.C. At an elevation of 3,333 feet, Boone began as a frontier outpost named after pioneer Daniel Boone, who first explored the area in the 1760s. Boone now attracts those seeking a breathtaking location, adventure and a quality education. Appalachian is a member of the 16-campus University of North Carolina system and offers a challenging learning experience. The university combines a smalltown atmosphere with a strong academic reputation.

Originally founded as a teachers college, Appalachian now cultivates leaders in business, science, the arts, communication, music, nursing, education and other careers.

Consistently ranked among U.S. News and World Report’s best public universities in the Southeast, Appalachian is also noted as a “best value” by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine and other publications. Appalachian’s 411-acre main campus includes 19 academic buildings, 20 residence halls, four dining facilities and 11 recreational and athletic facilities. Appalachian also operates a living-learning center in New York City and off-campus programs in 10 counties through collaboration with area community colleges.

APPALACHIAN ATHLETICS MISSION STATEMENT

The Department of Athletics at Appalachian State University believes in maintaining the intercollegiate athletics program as an integral part of the University’s overall program of education, with emphasis on and priority given to the high academic quality and standards and the complete development of the student. Appalachian State University provides opportunity and encouragement for student-athletes to progress toward degrees of their choice and to develop athletic abilities in an environment consistent with high standards of academic scholarship, leadership and institutional loyalty. The Department of Athletics is committed to ensuring the general welfare of the student-athlete and to encouraging the highest standards of sportsmanship on behalf of student-athletes, the student body and the University’s supporters. The intercollegiate athlete representing ASU is both a bona-fide student pursuing a degree program and an amateur competitor. Appalachian Athletics is committed to insuring equitable recruitment, participation and treatment of individuals including members of under-represented populations through its athletics administration, staff, coaches, programs and policies. The University’s policy of non-discrimination represents a moral and ethical, not merely a legal, imperative. The University has determined that its athletics program will meet the necessary qualifications, guidelines and funding to hold membership in Division I of the NCAA. The athletics administration, the faculty athletics representative and the Athletics Council work together to insure that all teams and coaches follow the rules and regulations governing this division. A sound program of intercollegiate athletics should benefit the institution through its effects on students, alumni ad the institution itself. Specifically, it should maintain and improve the loyalty and esprit de corps of the student body, and in strengthening the pride and enthusiasm of the alumni; it should serve as a favorable public relations factor and provide benefits to the participants.

The university also includes a textbook rental program that saves a student hundreds of dollars over four years. OUTSTANDING FACULTY Ninety-nine percent of Appalachian’s full-time faculty hold doctorate, first professional degree, or other terminal degrees. SMALL CLASSES, PERSONAL ATTENTION Personal attention from faculty is a hallmark of the Appalachian experience. Classes average 25 students.

INTERNATIONAL CONNECTIONS With study abroad opportunities on nearly every continent, Appalachian students have access to approximately 200 foreign sites for semester and year-long programs of study. CONTRIBUTORS TO KNOWLEDGE Each year, Appalachian receives nearly $20 million in external grants and contracts, which fund research projects that improve lives in North Carolina, across the nation and around the world.

The number of students engaging in research activities has increased 127 percent since 2005. ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE CAMPUS Appalachian was included in The Princeton Review’s 2010 “Guide to 286 Green Colleges” among the nation’s most environmentally responsible campuses, as well as Sierra Club Magazine’s 2010 list of 100 “Cool Schools,” a list of schools doing the most for the planet.

It also has a commitment to new buildings that are efficiently designed and LEED® certified and that use 100 percent green housekeeping supplies. PASSIONATE AND SUCCESSFUL ALUMNI Appalachian has more than 100,000 living alumni with 73 percent remaining in North Carolina after graduation.

BOONE

NORTH CAROLINA Boone lies in a small valley in the heart of the Southern Appalachians. It is named after the hunter and explorer Daniel Boone, who spent time in the region during the 1760s. Watauga County was formed in 1849 and the Town of Boone incorporated in 1872. Among its accolades are inclusion in National Geographic Adventure magazine’s “Best Places to Live and Play,” Norman Crampton’s “100 Best Small Towns in America,” USA Today’s “10 Great Small Towns with Huge Backyards” and U.S. News and World Report’s “10 Best Places to Retire in the U.S.” Boone is a college town, home to Appalachian State University. Originally Watauga Academy, the institution was formed to educate the mountain children and to ultimately prepare teachers for service through western North Carolina. It became Appalachian State Teachers College in 1929 and joined the University of North Carolina system in 1971. The university serves as a top economic driver followed by a combination of tourism, small business and residential home construction. The Boone area is characterized by mountain culture and casual living. Outdoor activities, cultural events, local dining and unique shops attract visitors from all over the world year-round. From breathtaking scenic views to Boone’s eclectic downtown area, known as King Street, there is something for everyone. One of the highlights of downtown Boone is the university’s Turchin Center for the Visual Arts. It features six gallery spaces and a community education and outreach program. Its exhibitions focus on a blend of recent and historically important artwork and feature nationally and internationally renowned artists as well as many of the finest artists of the region. A wide array of quality arts and cultural events enhance the Boone community. The university’s month-long celebration of performing and visual arts, known as An Appalachian Summer Festival, has brought notable performers such as Paul Taylor Dance Company, London City Opera, Charlie Daniels and the Glenn Miller Orchestra. During the academic year, Appalachian hosts the Performing Arts Series with artists such as Garrison Keillor and the National Symphony Orchestra. Boone offers an uncommon quality of life — that’s why many visitors come for a weekend and stay for a lifetime.
