ALEX G. SPANOS SPORTS COMPLEX

2

The Alex G. Spanos Sports Complex is an ambitious project that will change the face and character of Sacramento State. It is a centerpiece of Destination 2010, University President Alexander Gonzalez’ initiative to transform the campus into a premier metropolitan university and a destination campus. Thanks to generous gifts by philanthropist and San Diego Chargers owner Alex G. Spanos and his wife, Faye, the facility has had more than $13 million in upgrades since 1998. Hornet Stadium also is at the center of a project that includes the Eli and Edythe Broad Fieldhouse (opened in 2009), a recreation center (opening 2010), and stadium renovation — all part of the Spanos Sports Complex. Alex G. and Faye Spanos provided the leadership gift of $10 million to support expansion of the Spanos Sports Complex. There will be additional funding from other private sources and a new fee that students supported in a 2004 referendum. The first expansion phase of the complex was the Broad Fieldhouse in recognition of a $2 million gift from Eli and Edythe Broad. The facility is on the south side of the stadium and includes a nearly 6,000 square-foot weight room, as well as locker rooms, offices and athletic training room. Also in 2008, Sacramento State broke ground on the Recreation and Wellness Center north of the stadium. At approximately 150,000 square feet, the state-of-the-art facility will have an indoor track, fitness center, recreational courts, a rock-climbing wall and a health center. Its completion in the fall of 2010 will complement the unprecedented number of students living on campus with the 2009 opening of the University’s new residence hall. Sacramento State is currently pursuing public-private partnership options for the arena portion of the complex. It will be built on the east of the stadium and seat 6,000 to 8,000 for events such as intercollegiate basketball, commencement and concerts. The stadium renovation will include a more permanent structure and additional amenities. The development of the Spanos Sports Complex is part of the Destination 2010 initiative to improve Sacramento State through enhanced academic and student programs, the building of a welcoming campus, the creation of a dynamic physical environment and the development outstanding community support.

2010 SACRAMENTO STATE TRACK & FIELD HORNET TRACK & FIELD

BUILDING A CHAMPIONSHIP TRADITION Sacramento State has become the most successful track and field program in the Big Sky Conference over the last three years. The Hornets have won five conference titles during that span including three out of four in 2008. The streak began when the men’s team stunned the rest of the Big Sky at the 2007 indoor championships. The team proved its title was not a fluke by repeating in 2008 and was joined atop the awards stand by the women’s team which claimed its first crown. In the spring of 2008, the Hornet women grabbed the first Big Sky outdoor title in school history while the men finished second. In 2009, the women claimed their second consecutive outdoor title and just missed out on winning indoors, finishing second. Individually, Sacramento State has also produced 53 Big Sky Conference champions in the last three years.

2010 SACRAMENTO STATE TRACK & FIELD WOMEN’S SEASON OUTLOOK

WOMEN’S SEASON OUTLOOK

6

To say the bar has been raised for the Sacramento State women’s track and field program may be an understatement. The Hornets joined the Big Sky Conference in 1997 and never finished higher than fourth at the indoor or outdoor championships for the first 11 years. Then came 2008. That year, the Hornets won both team titles in decisive fashion scoring 112 points at the indoor meet and an amazing 166.5 at the outdoor meet. Last season, the team just missed a second straight indoor title, finishing second to Northern Arizona (116.5-108.5). The Hornets moved back to the top of the list during the outdoor season with a convincing win which gave the team three championships in a two-year window. Despite being on top of the league, Director of Track and Field/Cross Country Kathleen Raske and her team are not satisfied. “Our theme for this year is ‘Making it Count’,” Raske said. “We want to continue to propel this program forward to win the Big Sky and score at nationals. To achieve those goals it comes back to the daily decisions that we make.” Sacramento State returns the majority of its roster from last year. The group consists of two NCAA

outdoor championship qualifiers, eight individual Big Sky champions, six NCAA West Regional qualifiers and 20 all-Big Sky honorees. A third-straight Big Sky outdoor crown would move the team into elite company as only NAU (2003-05) and Boise State (1984-86) achieved the feat. The Hornets’ chance will come May 12-15 when Weber State hosts the meet in Ogden, Utah. The 2010 Big Sky Indoor Championships will take place Feb. 26-27 at Montana State. One major new change to track and field this year will come in the way student-athletes compete in the outdoor postseason. The NCAA has done away with the regional format and will instead create two distinct rounds. The first and second rounds will take place in Austin, Texas, and Greensboro, N.C., with those advancing (12 automatics in each event from both sites) competing at the NCAA Div. I Outdoor Championships in Eugene, Ore.

SPRINTS

Plenty of options are available to Sacramento State in the 100, 200 and 400. Leading the charge will be junior Victoria Humphrey who earned all-Big Sky Conference honors in the 100 at last season’s outdoor

championships. Humphrey also placed fourth in the outdoor 200. During the indoor season, the Vallejo, Calif., native was third in the 400 and also scored in the 200 with an eighth-place showing. Sophomore Alicia Truesdale returns after redshirting in 2008. Truesdale burst onto the Big Sky scene as a freshman in 2008, winning the 60-meter title during the indoor season. She then finished sixth in the 100 during the outdoor campaign and also anchored the team’s 4x100 relay which claimed first place. Sophomore Sakya Bolton will challenge the pair in the short sprints. Bolton redshirted during the indoor seasons but qualified for the Big Sky championships in the 100. Freshman Nicole McGlory could also run the 100 and 200. Junior Brianna Nelson came on strong at the end of last season, capping her year by running 55.70 in the 400 at the Big Sky outdoor meet. That effort earned her all-Big Sky honors in third place. Nelson also has the ability to be a successful 200 runner as she was fourth during the indoor season. Nicole Jackson, who is primarily a hurdler, could also run the 400 during the indoor season.

HORNET TRACK & FIELD | BIG SKY CONFERENCE CHAMPIONS 2007, 2008, 2009


2010 SACRAMENTO STATE TRACK & FIELD WOMEN’S SEASON OUTLOOK MIDDLE DISTANCE DISTANCE/DISTANCE

One of the most anticipated races at last season’s Big Sky championships came in the women’s 800 where Lea Wallace and Renisha Robinson battled each other for the top two spots. Robinson won the indoor title with a school record of 2:08.64 while Wallace finished second. Outdoors, the tables were turned with Wallace finishing first. Both student-athletes advanced to the NCAA West Regional where Wallace was third and Robinson fifth. The two then went to the NCAA Div. I Outdoor Championships marking the first time Sacramento State has had two women compete at the meet. Wallace finished 15th overall and set the school record in the process with a time of 2:05.85 “The goal for both of them is to qualify for both indoor and outdoor nationals and score,” Raske said. “To have two high-level athletes of their caliber train side-by-side everyday is an advantage for both of them.” Along with her success in the 800, Robinson is also the team’s top 1,500 runner. Last year, she finished second to earn all-Big Sky outdoor honors and holds the school record at 4:25.36 which came in 2008. The pair will also be joined by Lora Marchini, Mary O’Reilly and Erin Lewis. Marchini qualified for both Big Sky championships in the 800 and also the 1,500 outdoors. Lewis was a Big Sky qualifier in the mile during the indoor season and the 1,500 outdoors. Jenni Eiremo returns to run the mile and 3K indoors and the steeplechase outdoors. Last season, she qualified for the Big Sky outdoor meet in both events. The longer distances will be covered by Lewis and freshmen Rachel Mitchell and Danzel Bradshaw. All three had success during the cross country season for the Hornets. Senior Kristina Holtz, who is a four-time all-Big Sky selection, will close out her career after the indoor season.

HURDLES

The thought of Sacramento State dominating the short hurdles and taking at least five of the top eight spots seems preposterous at first. However, a closer look at the Hornet roster reveals that the team boasts three former Big Sky champions, another all-Big Sky selection, and a talented freshman. Truesdale, Bolton and Ericka Violett have all won Big Sky hurdle titles over the last two seasons. Truesdale was the 100-hurdles champion in 2008, Violett won the 60-hurdles in 2009 and Bolton took the 2009 title in the 100-hurdles. Couple that with Moira Robinson, who finished third in the 60-hurdles in 2008 and Nicole McGlory and the Hornets might have a recipe for a ton of points. “I think they all can score at conference,” Raske said. “The three champions have all shown what they can do and Moira had the fastest time among the group this fall.” Violett, Truesdale and Robinson account for three of the six fastest times in the 60-hurdles in school history. Violett owns the fastest mark among the three at 8.56 seconds which places her second in the Hornet record book. Outdoors, Violett has run 13.95 in the 100-hurdles to rank seventh all-time while Truesdale has a mark

triple jump and was fifth in the long. Celma scored last season at the indoor championships and also qualified for the meet in the triple jump. Violett, Lizzy Norvel, Kaitlynne Moore and Jessica Pimentel all return in the pole vault. All four have placed their names among the top 10 in school history in the event. Indoors, Violett owns the top mark at 1211.75 while Moore and Norvell are tied for second at 12-05.50. Outdoors, Norvell cleared 12-10.00 to edge Violett (12-07.50). Moore is fourth with a best of 12-02.50 and Pimentel is 10th at 11-03.75.

THROWS

Ericka Violett is one of three Hornet women who have won a Big Sky title in the hurdles over the last two years.

of 14.13 to rank ninth. Naima Goodwin and Jackson will also contribute. Jackson scored in both the 100-hurdles and 400hurdles last season by placing eighth and seventh, respectively.

JUMPS

Heading into last season, one of the biggest questions for the women’s team was how they were going to replace Lori Vaught who was the 2008 conference indoor champion in both the long jump and triple jump. That question was answered quickly by Violett. The junior not only matched Vaught’s double indoor, she added the outdoor long jump title as well. En route to her championships, Violett set the school record in the indoor triple jump (41-03.00) and moved into second place in the long jump (20-00.25). She was also named the Big Sky Female Field Athlete of the Meet. Outdoors, she also became the first Sacramento State woman to triple jump 40-feet and long jump 20-feet in the same season. Twins Nicole and Lauren McGlory will also be showcased in both horizontal jumps. Lauren placed fifth at the California state meet in the triple and 14th in the long as a senior. She has a career best of 4005.00 in the triple and 18-03.00 in the long. Nicole’s best include 18-09.00 in the long and 39-03.00 in the triple. Goodwin has been a consistent Big Sky qualifier during her first two seasons but Raske expects a breakthrough year from the junior in the high jump. “Naima should break the school record,” Raske said. If Goodwin is to set the school record in the high jump, she will have to move past Robinson and Baiba Celma who are already in the top 10. After redshirting last season, Moira Robinson returns in a variety of jumps. As a freshman, she earned all-Big Sky honors in the indoor long jump and narrowly missed the award in both the triple jump and high jump where she was fourth. Outdoors, she finished third at the Big Sky meet in the high jump and

Defending Big Sky outdoor champion and two-time NCAA West Regional qualifier Ify Agwuenu headlines the Hornet throwers. Agwuenu won her first Big Sky title last season in the shot put. The junior was consistent throughout the season with a mark of at least 48-feet in six of her eight meets. She peaked at the end of the year with a school record put of 50-06.75 to place sixth at the NCAA West Regional. During the indoor season, she finished second at the Big Sky meet and also set the school record at 48-01.25. “Ify had a great year last season and we look for her to build on that,” Raske said. “She was close to getting to nationals last year and will hopefully make that jump.” Senior Tatiana Clark also scored for Sacramento State in the shot put indoors and qualified for the Big Sky outdoor meet. The pair will be joined by junior Andi Behring, redshirt sophomore Jessica Bonner and JC transfer Holly Lohse. During the outdoor season, the hammer could have four new faces for the Hornets in Lohse, Bonner, and Lila and Sarah Yoldi. Lohse, who finished second at the 2009 California JC state meet in the discus, is also expected to be joined by Agwuenu, Clark and Bonner. Celma is the lone returner on the team with javelin experience. As a freshman, she placed seventh at the Big Sky outdoor meet with a best of 124-06 which ranks eighth at Sacramento State. Freshmen Emily Kersting, Kenna Ross and Holly Fraser will also throw the javelin in 2010. Kersting placed third at the Oregon state meet as a senior while Ross was third in Washington.

Goodwin finished fourth in the heptathlon and sixth in the pentathlon last season at the Big Sky championships. She is already ranked among the top four in school history in both events and is poised to improve on those numbers, according to Raske. “Her training indicates that she may be rady to qualify for nationals.”

2010 SACRAMENTO STATE TRACK & FIELD MEN’S SEASON OUTLOOK

MEN’S SEASON OUTLOOK

8

The Sacramento State track and field program has come a long way when a season which includes an NCAA Championships appearance, four Big Sky Conference individual champions, and seven NCAA regional qualifiers can be deemed as a “rebuilding year”. However, that is exactly how Director of Track and Field/Cross Country Kathleen Raske described the 2009 season for the Hornet men. After winning the Big Sky Conference indoor title in 2008 and finishing second during the outdoor season, Sacramento State’s chances to repeat were dashed with a handful of early season injuries which in turn led Raske to redshirt some of her veterans in an attempt to reload for 2010. “We took a bit of a hit last year,” Raske explained. “This year, the men have had a good fall. We return some very talented guys and will be reemerging as a podium team.” The podium has become a familiar setting for the Hornets. The team broke through in 2007 by winning the Big Sky indoor title and placing second outdoors. A repeat of that performance the following year solidified Sacramento State as one of the upper echelon teams in the league.

In 2010, the Hornets will have the opportunity to win their third Big Sky indoor title in the last four years when they travel to Montana State in late February. The Big Sky outdoor championships will take place May 12-15 at Weber State. One major new change to track and field this year will come in the way student-athletes compete in the postseason. The NCAA has done away with the regional format and will instead create two distinct rounds. The first and second rounds will take place in Austin, Texas, and Greensboro, N.C., with those advancing (12 automatics in each event from both sites) competing at the NCAA Div. I Outdoor Championships in Eugene, Ore.

SPRINTS

In the last three seasons, Sacramento State has dominated the Big Sky in the sprints. The team has had the winner of the indoor 55/60 and 200 as well as the outdoor 100 and 200 in two of the last three seasons. Along with those victories, the Hornets have compiled other points, routinely placing multiple student-athletes among the top eight. This year, depth will again be a strength for the

team. Returners A.J. Reed and Ronald Brookins have already shown their ability to compete on the big stage but Raske believes sophomore Andy White is poised to be a threat as well. “Andy is so far ahead from where he was a year ago,” Raske said. “He’s very explosive and has the ability to challenge the other two.” Reed returns after redshirting last season. The senior is a three-time all-Big Sky selection and scored in both the 60 (sixth) and 100 (fourth) in 2008. Just a junior, Brookins has already built an impressive resume as a Hornet, including berths to the NCAA Championships, and IAAF Junior World Championships. In the sprints, he placed second in the 60 last season to earn all-Big Sky accolades. His time of 6.86 seconds places him third in school history. White saw action in the 60 and 100 as a freshman. He qualified for the Big Sky Championships in the 60 and could also run the 200 this year. Freshmen Justin Nesbitt and D.J. Wright also add to the overall depth. Nesbitt was the Modesto Metro Conference champion in the 100 and 200 as a senior while Wright finished second at the Oregon state meet in 2009.

2010 SACRAMENTO STATE TRACK & FIELD MEN’S SEASON OUTLOOK In the longer sprints, senior Jason Nelson is projected to be the leader in 400. Nelson, who will also compete in the 200, scored for the team at the outdoor championships with a sixth-place finish. Sophomore Cameron Jost comes to Sacramento State after a season at Cal State Bakersfield. While with the Roadrunners, Jost won the 400 at the Div. I Independent championships with a time of 48.21. Junior Kirk Anderson rounds out the trio that will compete in the 200 and 400. Anderson was part of a Modesto JC team which finished second at the state meet in the 4x400 a year ago.

MIDDLE DISTANCE DISTANCE/DISTANCE

With eight possible competitors, the 800 is arguably the deepest event for the men’s team in 2010. Senior David Rabinowitz is the leading returner of the group coming off a junior campaign which saw him run 1:50.04. That time qualified him for the NCAA West Regional and Big Sky championships, where he placed seventh. Rabinowitz also moved into fourth place in school history in the event. Fellow senior Terrell Kirtz also competed in the 800 at the Big Sky indoor and outdoor championships. The Fairfield, Calif., native’s best time was 1:51.63 which placed him sixth in the Sacramento State annals. Myko Lucas joined the duo at the Big Sky outdoor meet and recorded the best finish on the team by placing fifth overall. Five highly decorated newcomers will add to the talent of the 800 for Sacramento State. The group is comprised of freshmen Jake Arveson, Matt Case, Robert Davis, Nathaniel Litwiller and Cole Younger. Case and Litwiller finished second and third, respectively, at the 2009 California High School State Meet with each running a time of sub-1:53.00. “We have a tremendous class of freshmen in the 800,” Raske said. “They have all run 1:53 or better and are ready to step in and compete right away.” The longer distances don’t boast nearly as many options for Sacramento State. Senior Scott Grose will return in the steeplechase after competing in the event at the NCAA West Regional in 2009. Grose will also likely run the mile along with Rabinowitz. Seniors Colin Szehner and Daniel Carlson are each slated to compete in the 5K and 10K. That pair will be accompanied by junior Jason Sey, sophomore Chris Romo and freshman Daniel Mitchell. All five also served as members of the Hornet cross country team as well.

HURDLES

While Brookins’ accomplishments in the sprints are impressive, his hurdling has set him apart from the rest of the conference. The San Diego native is coming off a season in which he advanced to the NCAA Div. I Outdoor Championships in the event and Raske’s expectations are even higher for 2010. “I believe that Ronald has the talent to not only return to the NCAA’s but also score,” Raske said. In his first two years as a Hornet, Brookins has won a pair of Big Sky outdoor titles in the 110-hurdles and has two third place showings indoors in the 60-hurdles. He also holds the school record in the 60hurdles (7.96) and ranks second in the 110-hurdles (13.92). Reed also has a Big Sky title of his own, winning the 2008 indoor crown in the 60-hurdles. His best

Emilio Hernandez returns after redshirting last season. In 2008, Hernandez was named the Big Sky Male Field Athlete of the Meet at the outdoor championships. The junior is one of five Hornet men who have won a Big Sky title time of 8.02 seconds in the event ranks third in school history. “A.J. and Ronald are both national class hurdlers,” Raske explained. “The two of them have a friendly rivalry and they push each other to become better.” Wright is also expected to compete in the short hurdles during his first season. During the outdoor season, Matt Williamson will be the top threat in the 400-hurdles.

JUMPS

Since joining the Big Sky in 1997, the outdoor long jump champion has hailed from Sacramento State in seven of those 13 years. The opportunity to add another winner to that list is high as the Hornets return Brookins, who won the 2008 title, as well as all-Big Sky selection Emilio Hernandez. Those two will also be challenged by Wright as well as junior college transfer Greg Mayo. Last year, Brookins won the Big Sky indoor long jump and also earned all-Big Sky honors during the outdoor season. He later advanced to the NCAA West Regional and finished sixth — narrowly missing one of the five automatic berths to the championships. His indoor PR of 25-02.75 ranks places him second in school history and makes him one just five Hornets to jump 25-feet in the event either indoors or outdoors. Hernandez, who redshirted last season, was the Male Field Athlete of the Meet at the 2008 Big Sky Outdoor Championships after winning the high jump and placing third in the triple jump. The junior cleared a personal-best 6-10.75 to become the first Hornet to win the high jump since joining the Big Sky in 1997. The Redwood City, Calif., native also qualified for the conference meet in the long jump. During the indoor season, Hernandez was third in the high jump to earn all-conference honors and placed fifth in the triple jump. “Emilio is at a whole new level,” Raske said. “He had a great fall and has the potential to win any of his events.”

Mayo is also expected to long and triple jump. At Fresno City College, he earned JC All-America honors after finishing second at the state meet in the triple jump. He was also a two-time Central Valley Conference champion in the long jump. Wright, who has a best of 23-08.50, was second in the long jump as a junior at the Oregon state meet and added a third-place showing as a senior. The Eugene, Ore., is also likely to join Hernandez in the high jump. Sophomore Sam Schur and Williamson will also compete in the long jump. The Hornets have three pole vaulters on the roster. Blair Wallingford and Andrew Lohse return for their sophomore seasons and will be joined by freshman Brett Thompson. Wallingford cleared 15-11.00 at the Big Sky indoor meet to finish fourth overall and move into fourth place in school history. He also advanced to the Big Sky Outdoor Championships in the event. Lohse also competed at the Big Sky outdoor meet and had a best of 15-01.00.

THROWS

Taylor Weldon is the only returner with experience in the throws during the indoor season. Last year, Weldon saw limited action indoors but went on to qualify for Big Sky Outdoor Championships in the shot put, discus and hammer. To help add depth in the throws, Sacramento State has brought in junior college transfer Callan Duffy and freshman Andrew Titherington. The team will also have freshman Jason Wacker, who redshirted last year. Duffy comes to the Hornets from Fresno City College where he was the 2009 Central Valley Conference champion in the hammer. Titherington is a local product from Jesuit High School where he was a three-year, four-event state meet qualifier. As a senior, he won the Sac-Joaquin Section title in the discus with a throw of 165-02 and also advanced to the state meet. Titherington also finished first in the shot put at the Sacramento Meet of Champions as a sophomore. The outdoor season will feature the return of NCAA West Regional qualifier Nick Mills in the javelin. In his first year with the Hornets, Mills set the school record with a throw of 215-11. Freshman Jesse Elvrom will also throw the javelin. He finished second at the Washington state meet as a senior and had a best of 205-00 during the year. “Both Nick and Jesse should score at Big Sky,” Raske said. “Jesse is a good athlete who also ran hurdles and sprints in high school.”

MULTIS

Schur and Williamson are the top two contenders in the heptathlon and decathlon. As a freshman, Schur recorded the third-best mark in school history in the heptathlon (4,734) and the seventh-best decathlon score (6,298). Williamson competed in one heptathlon during the indoor season before redshirting outdoors.

Prior to 2004 the Hornet Track & Field/Cross Country programs had never finished better than fourth as a team at a Big Sky Conference Championship meet. Kathleen Raske took the helm in 2004 and quickly turned the program around. Raske has led the Hornets to five Big Sky team championships while finishing second four additional times. To say that times have changed is an understatement. Raske’s team-oriented and family-focused philosophy has nurtured in a new era of excellence at Sacramento State. In the six seasons Raske has led the Hornets, she has been named Big Sky Conference Coach of the Year five times, produced four NCAA All-Americans, five USATF Junior All-Americans, 18 NCAA National Championship participants, 81 NCAA West Regional participants, 74 conference champions, and 182 all-Big Sky performers. There have also been 75 new event school records have been set, and 343 all-time top five event marks have been recorded. Raske is also the only female coach to earn to lead a men’s team to a Div. I conference title in NCAA history in any sport. In 2009 the Hornets continued their high level of performance. The women repeated as Big Sky outdoor champions while finishing runner up indoors and in cross country. The second place finish in cross country was the highest finish in school history. Ronald Brookins and Ericka Violett were voted Most Valuable Field Athletes of the meet at the indoor championships. In total for the year, the athletes’ individual accolades included; 13 conference champions, 37 all-conference accolades, 18 entries to the West NCAA Regional and three to the NCAA Championship meets. In addition nine school records and 67 all-time top five marks were established. In 2008, the Hornets set numerous firsts. Individually, Raphael McFarlane joined Dan O’Brien as the only two men to be named both track and field athlete of the meet at the Big Sky indoor championships, and Emilio Hernandez garnered the field athlete of the meet award at the outdoor championships. There were also a record 22 Big Sky event titles won, 20 entries to the NCAA West Regional and five to the NCAA Championships (three outdoor, two indoor). Raske also had success after the season as freshman Ronald Brookins finished third at the USATF Junior Nationals in the 110-hurdles and 11th at the IAAF Junior World Championships in Poland. Raske led the Hornets to prominence in 2007 as the men claimed the first Big Sky team title in school history at the indoor meet. That year, the individual accomplishments included 20 school records, 16 conference titles, 35 all-conference honors, 11 NCAA West Regional participants in 15 events, and a record-setting four NCAA National Championship participants. Raske coached Nancy Searcy to the NCAA Championship meet and the North America, Central America and Caribbean Athletic Association (NACAC) Championships. Searcy won three Big Sky titles and had six all-conference finishes. While doing so, she broke a 22-year old school record when she ran 13.35 in the 100-hurdles at the prestigious Mt. Sac Relays. In 2006, the honors continued to pile up for Sacramento State. Dave Nichols finished sixth at the NCAA Championships making him the first Hornet to be named All-America two times. Awarded the Big Sky Conference Women’s Field Athlete of the Meet, Roshena Duree became the first Hornet to garner a conference championship most outstanding accolade. During the year, eight conference championships and 23 all-conference finishes were collected by Sacramento State. The 2005 campaign was a banner year for Raske’s programs. An unprecedented three student-athletes competed at the NCAA Championships. While there, all three (Geoff Fong, David Nichols and Brandon Parker) advanced

2010 SACRAMENTO STATE TRACK & FIELD HORNET FACILITIES

The Sacramento State track and field program begins its 12th season in the renovated Hornet Stadium and its second in the Eli & Edythe Broad Fieldhouse. Seating just over 21,000, the stadium remains the University’s most impressive athletic facility and the largest track facility in the Big Sky Conference. Thanks to a generous donation by philanthropist Alex G. Spanos, Hornet Stadium underwent a major renovation in May of 1998 to accommodate the upgrades for the 2000 Olympic Trials. Reconstruction of the existing track was completed by August, just three months later. A separate warm-up track followed in 1999. In 2003, upgrades were made to the stadium lighting and a new scoreboard was installed for both track and football. Regarded as one of the fastest surfaces in the country, Hornet Stadium has also hosted the 2001 Junior Olympics, the 2003, 2005, 2006 and 2007 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, and the 2000 and 2004 U.S. Track and Field Olympic Trials. The track has been used by some of the best athletes in the world. Since it was installed in 1999, one world, six American, 22 Olympic Trials, eight U.S. Championship, 13 NCAA, three American junior and two national high school records have been set at the facility. The stadium track is surfaced with Mondo Sportflex Super X and features eight 1.22 meter-wide lanes on the oval and nine lanes for the 200 and 100 meter races. The track has a 37-meter radius with the steeplechase water jump on the inside of the track on the North curve. The field event areas include two dual directional long/triple jump runways positioned on the inside of the East side of the track. There are also two dual directional pole vault runways located inside the North end of the track. The high jump has two approach areas on each end. The field event approach surfaces are all Mondo Sportsflex Super X. All throwing events can be contested on the infield inside the track. In addition to the high-quality stadium track, there is a 400-meter oval practice track located just to the North of the stadium. The additional track is used for

Hornet Stadium Fast Facts Originally Built: Built: 1969 Original Capacity: Capacity: 6,000+ Current Capacity (1998): (1998) 21,195 Field Surface: Surface Grass First Renovation: Renovation: 1992 warm-ups at large meets and as an extra practice site. The second track is also surfaced with Mondo Sportsflex Super X and has a six-lane straightaway with a two-lane 400 meter oval built to the same specifications of the stadium track. All jumping and throwing events have runways, pits, and rings within the practice facility. In the fall of 2008, a new throws area (center picture) was added on the north end of the practice track. The area features a new 10-meter hammer/discus cage, two shot put rings with an 85-foot dedicated landing area and a javelin runway. The facility allows all Hornet throwers to train and compete in the same location for the first time in school history. This allows for greater instruction during practice and meets and is fan-friendly for competition viewing. The Broad Fieldhouse provides the Hornets with one of the top facilities in the Big Sky Conference. The building, which was completed in the spring of 2008, contains locker rooms for both the men’s and women’s teams, coaches offices, training room and weight room. The facility is located at the south end of the stadium and gives the program the ability to train and meet year-around. The addition of these projects only enhances Sacramento State’s ability to continue to host NCAA and USATF national championship meets.

Raphael McFarlane became the school’s first NCAA Div. I Indoor All-American when he achieved the feat in the long jump at the 2008 championships. That performance followed an amazing Big Sky Championship effort where McFarlane helped lead the Hornets to their first Big Sky title by winning the 60, 200 and long jump. Following the meet, he was named the Big Sky Male Track and Field Athlete of the Meet. The only other person to win both awards at the Big Sky Indoor meet was Olympian Dan O’Brien.

2010 SACRAMENTO STATE TRACK & FIELD 2009 CROSS COUNTRY REVIEW

With a balance of returning leaders and young talented freshmen, the Sacramento State men’s and women’s cross country team competed in eight meets during the 2009 season. The Hornets opened the year at the USF Invitational and were led by freshmen Rachel Mitchell and Daniel Mitchell. The following week, Sacramento State hosted its annual Hornet Jamboree where the men placed second and the women third. Chris Romo and Scott Grose paced the men’s team by finishing fourth and sixth, respectively, while Rachel Mitchell crossed the line in seventh to lead the women. The highly competitive Stanford Invitational was followed by the Doc Adams Invitational in Davis, Calif. Senior Kristina Holtz recorded the first of her two consecutive wins by running 21:49.3 at the Doc Adams. Holtz later won the WAC Preview meet in Reno, Nev., the following week and helped the Hornets to a pair of women’s team titles in those meets. Sacramento State closed out its regular season at the Santa Clara Invitational where the men finished second and women took fourth. Grose and Romo again placed among the top 10 to guide the men while had the top women’s time. The Big Sky Championships took the Hornets to Greeley, Colo., for the first time. The Halloween Day race took place in less than ideal conditions as a heavy storm created a slippery course which slowed down the pack. Junior Renisha Robinson earned all-Big Sky honors by placing eighth and helping the Hornet women to a fourth-place finish. Grose had the best time for the men, who placed sixth. Robinson and Grose led the way for the second straight week at the NCAA West Regional. The duo also moved into the top 10 in school history for highest finish and fastest time at the meet.

Coaches

Kathleen Raske, Director of Track & Field/Cross Country Scott Abbott, Cross Country Coach

Part of Sacramento State’s cross country training is to take advantage of the resources available on campus. This past fall, the team worked closely with Prof. Roberto Quintana. Dr. Quintana is the director of human performance research in the department of exercise physiology. Quintana’s specializes in altitude physiology and exercise performance. With his assistance, the team has been able to utilize some of the most advanced training techniques available at this time. Sacramento State also has the services of a registered dietician available. This allows the student-athletes to be able to create menus which best assist their training and recovery process.

Quick Facts • Sacramento State is the seventh largest university in the 23-campus CSU system, enrolling a multicultural student body of more than 29,000. The 300-acre campus is sheltered by more than 3,000 trees and dotted with flower gardens, including 3 million square feet of building space. Miles of trails stretch along the nearby river parkway, linking the University and student housing with recreational areas such as Folsom Lake and Old Sacramento. • Quality teaching is a top priority, and classes are small and personalized. More than 80 percent of recent graduates say their professors were enthusiastic and genuinely enjoyed teaching. • Preparing students for a career is a vital part of the education here. Thousands of students from all majors earn academic credit working in internship and co-op positions, many of which are paid. • Sacramento State, often called “Sac State,” was founded as Sacramento State College in 1947 during a time of intense demand for higher education after World War II. We moved to our permanent location on the banks of the historic American River in 1953. In 1972, we were renamed California State University, Sacramento. • The University is in the midst of an ambitious new master plan that will remake Sacramento State into a residential campus and add some 1.5 million square feet of building space. The plan, to guide campus growth in coming decades, includes additional housing, and a recreation and wellness center. • Unlimited bus and light rail service throughout Sacramento is free for University students. Students may attend all home athletic events for free and attend other campus events for free or at a discount. More than half the students join one of the more than 200 student organizations, which include 35 fraternities and sororities.

• Sacramento State offers 60 undergraduate and 40 graduate degrees in eight Colleges. Teacher education is the largest academic program, followed by business, criminal justice, communication studies, psychology and computer science. The student-to-faculty ratio is 20 to 1; more than 70 percent of classes have fewer than 30 students. • Attracting students from all over the world, the criminal justice program is one of the largest in the United States. • One in 26 residents of the six-county Sacramento Region is a Sacramento State graduate. The University directly and indirectly contributes more than $900 million to the region’s economy annually. • Almost 700 new school teachers graduate from Sacramento State each year. • Seventy-eight percent of students say that Sacramento State was their first or only choice. • Sacramento State was the site of the 2003, 2005, 2006 and 2007 NCAA Div. I Track & Field Championships, and the Sacramento State Aquatic Center was the site of the 1997, 1999, 2004, 2005 and 2008 NCAA Women’s Rowing Championships. In addition, Sacramento State was host of the 2007 NCAA Div. I Women’s Volleyball Final Four at Arco Arena. • Sacramento State hosted the most successful U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials ever in 2000, and hosted the event again in 2004. • Famous Sacramento State alumni include actor Tom Hanks, Grammy award winner Bobby McFerrin, former cohost of Good Morning America Joan Lunden, former host of the Early Show, Rene Syler, stand-up comedian Brian Posehn, actor Carlos Alazraqui, film director Joe Carnahan, former Stockton mayor Edward Chavez, famous economist and author Richard J. Maybury, former KTLA Morning News Giselle Fernández and founding member of the Village People David Hodo. • Famous Sacramento State athletics alumni include retired nine-year NFL offensive lineman and two-time Super Bowl winner John Gesek, Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Greg Knapp, former 10-year NFL fullback Daimon Shelton, nine-year long snapper and three-time Super Bowl winner Lonie Paxton, former 12-year NFL defensive back Lorenzo Lynch, CFL Edmonton Eskimos quarterback Ricky Ray, former CFL three-time leading rusher Charles Roberts, Arena Football League record-setting quarterback Aaron Garcia and former San Francisco wide receiver Fred Otis Amey.

Partnering With Athletics For Excellence When the Sacramento State student body overwhelmingly passed a referendum in the spring of 1995, it began a partnership between the Hornet Athletics Department and Associated Students, Inc. That vote by the students helps fund the athletics department and has been a key factor in the recent success. ASI is a student-run, non-profit corporation that represents the student body in the governance of the University. One of ASI’s goals is to facilitate student participation in a full range of campus life and learning outside the classroom. Guided by this goal, ASI supports intercollegiate, recreational, and intramural sports, which is not only an important part of campus life, but an arena in which leadership skills are developed. ASI also operates the Green Sting student organization, the Sacramento State Aquatic Center (which is home to the Hornet rowing team), the Challenge Center, Peak Adventures and numerous other student organizations.


• The city of Sacramento (population 400,018) is the cultural, educational, business and governmental center of a four-county metropolitan region. As California’s capitol city, Sacramento is center stage for governmental policy for the entire state. A dynamic business sector, an expanding public transportation system, affordable housing, and growing cultural, educational, and medical facilities serve the needs of 1.5 million people. • One of the most affordable big cities in California., Sacramento is part of a Capital Region in the heart of Northern California, one of the country’s most beautiful areas. Within easy driving distance are San Francisco, the Napa and Sonoma valleys, Yosemite Valley and the Lake Tahoe region’s ski slopes. • Founded in 1849, Sacramento was California’s first charter city and is at the heart of California history – the gold rush, Pony Express and first continental railroad all began in Sacramento. The city’s rich historical heritage, commitment to quality of life, and abundance of trees and parkland contributed to Newsweek magazine naming Sacramento one of the ten best cities in the United States. • Sacramento is home to the NBA’s Sacramento Kings, the Sacramento River Cats (Oakland A’s Triple-A affiliate) and the WNBA’s Sacramento Monarchs. • Sacramento has also become a tourist center with attractions including the State Capitol building, North America’s largest railroad museum, the Old Sacramento historic area, the California State History Museum and the Crocker Art Museum.


Dr. Alexander Gonzalez has served more than three decades as a professor and education leader, including serving as president of California State University, Sacramento, since 2003. As the first person in his family to graduate from college, Dr. Gonzalez has devoted his career to ensuring greater opportunities for students. He grew up in East Los Angeles with six siblings, graduating from high school at a time when students did not have the same options for higher education that they have today. Dr. Gonzalez enlisted in the U.S. Air Force at age 17, served four years and then used the G.I. Bill to graduate from Pomona College in Claremont, Calif. He graduated with honors and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He later earned a master’s in psychology and doctorate from the University of California, Santa Cruz, before serving as a postdoctoral research fellow at Stanford University. His experience includes six years as president of California State University, San Marcos, and 18 years at Fresno State, where he was a faculty member and chair of the Psychology Department before becoming the university’s provost and vice president for academic affairs. At Sacramento State, Dr. Gonzalez implemented his Destination 2010 initiative to transform the campus into a premier metropolitan university. The bold initiative seeks to make Sacramento State a campus of choice for students in the Sacramento region and beyond.

Following his belief that universities and communities must work together to improve lives and opportunities, Dr. Gonzalez serves on the Sutter Health Board of Directors and the Pomona College Board of Trustees. He previously served on the President’s Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans and the Valley Vision Board of Directors. His service on several boards and commissions includes six years as a commissioner for the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, the accrediting agency for higher education institutions in the western United States. He also served as chair of the Governing Board of the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities. His commitment to the California State University system includes serving on a work group that reviewed and recommended corrective action on remedial education, and, more recently, as a member of a committee of presidents considering policy on enrollment management, the CSU’s Technology Steering Committee, and the Institute for Teaching and Learning. Dr. Gonzalez is Sacramento State’s 11th president. His wife, Gloria, is also a graduate of the CSU. They have two sons.

Dr. Terry Wanless’ seven-year tenure as Sacramento State’s Director of Athletics has seen growth unparalleled in the school’s 18-year Division I history. His vision of broad success in the department has come to fruition over the last three years where the Hornets have combined to win 21 conference championships. That includes an unprecedented eight conference titles during both the 2006-07 and 2007-08 academic years. In addition, the program has claimed back-to-back Big Sky Conference Women’s All-Sports Trophies. In fact, of the 330 Div. I athletics programs, SI.com ranked Sacramento State as the 36th best athletics program during the 2007-08 academic year. The 2008-09 West Region Athletic Director of the Year for the Football Championship Subdivision, Wanless has overseen significant facility enhancement to the athletic facilities. The biggest change came during the spring of 2008 with the opening of the Broad Fieldhouse, which serves as the home to Hornet football and track and field, as well as athletic training and strength and conditioning. The Eli and Edythe Broad Fieldhouse is the first step of an elaborate plan that began with the passing of a referendum by the Sacramento State student body. That vote will also lead to the creation of a recreation and wellness center which will benefit the entire student body and is expected to open in the fall of 2010. Wanless has served on numerous NCAA committees, and just completed a term as a member of the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision selection committee and the Div. I Football Issues Committee. Previously, he was a member of the NCAA Football rules committee and the NCAA Peer Review committee. Wanless has been a visible member of the Sacramento State athletics family, constantly representing the University and department at public outings and speaking engagements. His commitment to the student-athlete has also been clear as both he and his wife, Joanne, attend the majority of Hornet home athletic events and support several teams on the road. His leadership and academic support have been evident to the student-athletes in other ways as well. The department’s Life Skills Program has seen rapid growth, significantly increasing the number of summer and fifth-year scholarships available to Hornet student-athletes. The Life Skills program has also launched the program’s first computer lab and offers Hornet student-athletes tutoring as well as academic counseling.

Over the last seven years, Sacramento State student-athletes have posted nearly 2,000 term GPAs of 3.0 or above, and close to 500 Hornets have earned conference all-academic honors during that same time period. His efforts in restoring the department’s booster club structure as well as aggressively improving the University’s collegiate licensing program, while not readily visible, are projects that will surely enhance the program’s financial footing in years to come. Athletically, the Hornets have also seen continued growth and success on the field of play. During his seven years at Sacramento State, 22 teams and 125 individuals have advanced to NCAA postseason competition. Wanless’ efforts to put the Hornets on the map have been instrumental in helping make Sacramento State the unofficial “home of NCAA Championships”. During his seven years of leadership, Sacramento State has served as host to seven NCAA championships (four track, two rowing, one volleyball) as well as the 2004 U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials. Prior to Sacramento State, Wanless served as athletics director at the University of North Dakota from 1990-1999, guiding the program to one of its most successful decades in school history. During that time, North Dakota enjoyed strong competitive success, winning four NCAA national championships and 36 conference titles. Additionally, 25 other teams finished second in their respective conferences. Before his position at North Dakota, Wanless was director of intercollegiate athletics at Western Carolina for four years and held a variety of positions, including director of intercollegiate athletics, at Towson University in Maryland. Wanless earned a bachelor’s degree in physical education from Black Hills State, a master’s degree in physical education from Northern Illinois and a doctorate in athletics administration from Temple. He and his wife, Joanne, are the parents of two children. Their daughter, Heather, and her husband, Chad Collins, reside in Lexington, Ky., with their daughter Hadley and son Jack. Their son Troy, and his wife, Jesi, live in Minneapolis with their daughter Elli.
