THE MOUNTAIN PACIFIC SPORTS FEDERATION

The Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) was established during the 199293 season to serve the competitive needs of member institutions from the Big Sky, Big West, Pacific-10 and Western Athletic Conferences, as well as other selected universities in the western United States; and to provide championships competition for Division I intercollegiate Olympic sports in a conference setting. In 2011-12, the MPSF will again sponsor competition in nine intercollegiate Olympic sports while serving over 1,500 student-athletes and approximately 71 teams from 34 universities in 12 western states. All MPSF teams compete at the NCAA Division I level in men’s soccer, men’s and women’s water polo, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, men’s and women’s gymnastics, women’s lacrosse and men’s volleyball. MPSF champions are eligible to compete in NCAA Championships with

MPSF men’s soccer, men’s and women’s water polo, and men’s volleyball champions earning automatic qualification into NCAA championship events. Two new teams joined the MPSF in men’s soccer prior to the 2009 season, Cal State Bakersfield and Seattle, drastically changing the MPSF schedule. Instead of roundrobin play, which the conference had been using since 2004, each team will play at least one game against each of the seven other squads in an attempt to finish in the top six to make the MPSF postseason tournament. This season’s tournament will be held at Denver, last season’s MPSF regular season champion. Sacramento state won the 2010 MPSF Tournament title and earned the league’s automatic NCAA Tournament bid.

MICHAEL LINENBERGER 23rd SEASON AS HEAD COACH DUKE, 1987 • CAREER RECORD: 148-221-43 Michael Linenberger begins his 23rd season at the helm of the Sacramento State men’s soccer program in 2011. He captured the school’s second consecutive Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Tournament title in 2010 and second-straight NCAA Men’s Soccer Tournament first-round victory. Linenberger began his coaching career with the Hornets as an assistant in 1988 and became co-head coach in 1989 before taking sole control of the program in 1992. He has accumulated a record of 148-221-43 as a head coach. The Hornets set a school record with seven draws in 2010 but turned on the offense in the MPSF conference tournament. Sacramento State scored 11 goals in three conference tournament games with a 6-2 win over No. 5 seed Air Force in the quarterfinals, a 3-1 defeat of No. 1 seed Denver in the semifinals and a 2-1 ovetime win over No. 2 seed Cal State Bakersfield in the championship match. The team continued to roll in the first round of the NCAA Men’s Soccer Championships with a 2-1 win against Santa Clara before falling at No. 8 ranked UCLA in the second round. Junior forward Chris Bettencourt scored five goals, with two game-winners, in five postseason games, while senior midfielder Ernesto Carranza, who became the firstever Hornet invited to the Major League Soccer (MLS) combine, had 12 points in five postseason games. Carranza and senior midfielder Fernando Cabadas were both selected in the MLS Supplemental Draft. In 2009, his team went undefeated in conference play (6-0-1), won both the MPSF regular season and tournament championships and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history. The squad finished with a 12-6-3 record and reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament after winning at Loyola Marymount in the first round. The 12 victories set a new single-season program record. Linenberger was named the MPSF Coach of the Year following the season. His players received a slew of accolades after the fantastic 2009 campaign, including Carranza who took home the league’s player of the year award. Carranza, Fernando Cabadas and Diego Marroquin were all named first team all-MPSF and Carranza and Cabadas also earned all-Far West Region honors from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). Sacramento State posted an 8-9-2 mark in 2008, finishing fourth in the MPSF with a record of 3-7-0. The Hornets earned three all-conference honors, with Cabadas earning first team honors. Adam Owens (second team) and Omar Martinez (honorable mention) went on to graduate and head to Puerto Rico to continue their soccer careers at the professional level. During the 2001 season, Linenberger guided the Hornets to their first regular-season conference championship in the Div. I era (1991-present). Sacramento State’s 4-12 MPSF record also gave the Hornets their most conference wins in program history at the time. Due to his efforts, Linenberger was named 2001 MPSF Men’s Soccer Coach of the Year. Off the field, he served five years as a member of the NCAA Div. I national selection committee. Linenberger was named to the NCAA Div. I Men’s Soccer Committee in the fall of 1997. As chair of the Far West Region, he travelled to Indianapolis and served as the region representative during the process of selecting the 48 teams that compete annually in the NCAA tournament. As a member of the NCAA soccer committee, Linenberger’s duties included overseeing site selection in the Far West Region for all rounds leading up to the Men’s College Cup, updating selection criteria and standards for the championships, rating conferences and serving at the College Cup as a member of the NCAA contingent which oversees the event. In October of 2008, Linenberger was named head coach of the U.S. Soccer Olympic Development Program for Region IV, overseeing all five age groups between U-14 and U-18. Linenberger is in charge of coach selection, player selection and the overall training curriculum. In addition, Linenberger was named a scout by the U.S. Soccer Federation for Project 2010, an initiative designed to make the men’s national team fully competitive by the 2010 World Cup. His primary duties included the scouting of 13-14 year olds in Northern California that have future national team potential but are not in the ODP system. Linenberger played professional soccer with the Sacramento Senators and for FC St. Pauli and SC Norderstedt in Germany’s second and third divisions. In addition, 30 of his former Sacramento State student-athletes have gone on to professional careers. That includes Joe Enochs, who was named to the 2001 U.S. National team. Linenberger received a bachelor of arts degree in psychology from Duke University in 1987. He was a four-year letterwinner as a member of the Blue Devils’ soccer team and a team captain. He was captain of the 1986 squad which won the NCAA Div. I national title.

CHRIS BETTENCOURT CELEBRATES HIS 87TH MINUTE GOAL THAT LED THE HORNETS TO A 2-1 VICTORY OVER SANTA CLARA

NOV. 18, 2010 VS. SANTA CLARA (W, 2-1) SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Chris Bettencourt scored with less than five minutes to play, propelling Sacramento State to a 2-1 victory over Santa Clara in the first round of the 2010 NCAA Men’s Soccer Tournament at Hornet Field. Sacramento State extended its amazing home unbeaten streak to 21 games (16-0-5) with the win and was victorious in the first round of the NCAA

Tournament for the second straight season. With time ticking away in regulation in the 86th minute, Max Alvarez took a pass from Ernesto Carranza and fired a shot that was deflected hard into the air by Santa Clara keeper Kevin Klasila. While the ball hung in the air, Bettencourt rushed forward and used a header to blast the ball inside the near post for the eventual game-winning goal.

Ernesto Carranza also scored for the Hornets in the 56th minute, with a beautiful bending ball from the top left of the 18-yard box that snuck inside the far post and just below the crossbar. It was the first time in program history that the Hornets hosted an NCAA Tournament match.

NOV. 21, 2010 AT #8 UCLA (L, 4-1) LOS ANGELES - The Sacramento State men’s soccer team battled No. 8 ranked UCLA to a scoreless first half but the Bruins turned it on in the second period as the Hornets fell 4-1 in the second round of the 2010 NCAA Men’s Soccer Tournament at Drake Stadium. The Hornets had their chances in the game. In the 18th minute, Ernesto Carranza dribbled down the far side of the field before cutting into the box

where his shot to the near post beat the keeper but was cleared off the line by a UCLA defender. In the 29th minute, the Hornets had another excellent chance, when Gabriel Silveira stole the ball away in the midfield and found Chris Bettencourt for a hard shot that just cleared the crossbar. Fernando Cabadas had the best chance of the night and nearly put the Hornets on the board in the 34th minute when his blast from the

top far corner of the box bounced off the inside of the near post then off the shoulder of the UCLA keeper before being cleared away. Carranza put the Hornets on the board when he took a pass from Max Alvarez at the top of the box and finished to the far post. It was Carranza’s seventh goal of the season.

After intermission, Loyola Marymount gained control of the play for the next 45 minutes, taking 13 shots, including the game-tying goal. In the 74th minute, Rafael Baca fed Vincent Ocampo, who took

Following a Hornet foul in the box in the 31st minute, Kyle Nakazawa converted the PK for his 12th goal of the season, giving the Bruins a 1-0 lead they would take into intermission.

as Max Alvarez found the equalizer, connecting on a blast from the near side to the far left corner of the goal from 25 yards out for his 10th goal of the season.

The second half saw Sacramento State come out of the locker room fired up, outshooting the Bruins 6-5, while putting four shots on goal to UCLA’s one.

ADMINISTRATION UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT Dr. Alexander Gonzalez 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. 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. He graduated with honors and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He later earned a master’s degree 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 the university’s provost and vice president for academic affairs. 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.

ATHLETICS DIRECTOR Dr. Terry Wanless Dr. Terry Wanless’ nine-year tenure as Sacramento State’s Director of Athletics has seen growth unparalleled in the school’s 20-year Division I history. His vision of broad success in the department has come to fruition over the last five years as the Hornets have combined to win 34 conference championships. That includes an unprecedented eight conference titles during the 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2010-11 academic years. In addition, the program claimed the 2010-11 Big Sky Conference All-Sports Points Title. This past year, the program finished 119th out of 345 schools in the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup standings, the highest ranked team in the Big Sky Conference. 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 Hornets football and track and field, as well as athletic training and strength and conditioning. Wanless has served on numerous NCAA committees, and recently completed a term as a member of the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision selection committee.


STUDENT-ATHLETE RESOURCE CENTER The Student-Athlete Resource Center was created in March 2006 in an effort to combine three very important Student Affairs’ programs that provide valuable services to Hornet student-athletes, coaches, and staff.

GET TO KNOW SACRAMENTO


THE CAPITOL BUILDING The California State Capitol is home to the government of California. The building houses the bicameral state legislature and the office of the governor. The Neoclassical structure was completed between 1861 and 1874 at the west end of Capitol Park, which is framed by L Street to the north, N Street to the south, 10th Street to the west, and 15th Street to the east. The Capitol and grounds were listed on the office of the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, and listed as a California Historical Landmark during 1974, with a re-dedication on January 9, 1982 to commemorate the close of the bicentennial restoration project. The California Senate chamber seats its 40 members in a large chamber room decorated in red, which is a reference to the British House of Lords, also the upper house of a bicameral legislature. The Latin phrase “Senatoris est civitatis libertatem tueri” [“It is the duty of a Senator to protect the liberty of the people”] lines a wall in the chamber.

MIDTOWN Going to school and living in an urban area has its advantages. Midtown is a perfect example of that.

Top: Sacramento’s midtown neighborhood features many restaurants and shops. Left: There are a myriad of old Victorian homes that have been renovated into apartments in midtown.

The neighborhood, bordered by R Street on the South, J Street on the North, 16th Street on the West and 30th Street on the East, is home to many Hornets.

Below: Tree-lined streets and wide sidewalks make midtown an inviting place to live.

A large number of Sacramento State students live in Midtown due to the area’s fun and vibrant atmosphere and the numerous public transportation options available. Students can take both bus and light rail to get to campus. It is a largely residential community with treelined streets and old Victorians. It is also the center of Sacramento’s art, music, and cultural scene. Boutiques, bars, clubs and upscale and casual dining abound and Midtown has the only winery located in the greater urban area.

Midtown hosts the famous “Second Saturday” street fair on the second Saturday of each month, which attracts thousands of visitors. Midtown is known for being pedestrianfriendly and bike-friendly with continuous marked bike-lanes throughout the neighborhood and a bike path connecting to the American River Parkway which extends to Folsom.


OLD SACRAMENTO In 1839, John Sutter arrived on the shore of the American River near its confluence with the Sacramento River. With the promise of a Mexican land grant, Sutter and his landing party established Sutter's Fort.

In 1853, a mammoth project was proposed to raise the city above the flood level. The ambitious and expensive proposal was not fully accepted until another devastating flood swept through the city in 1862. Within a few years, thousands of cubic yards of earth were brought in on wagons and the daring scheme to raise the street level began. The original street level can be seen throughout Old Sacramento under the boardwalks and in basements.

As the settlement grew and became permanent, it attracted other businessmen looking for opportunities. Sutter and the people he attracted created a commercial center in the area, but it was the Gold Rush in 1848 that created the City of Sacramento. When gold was discovered in the nearby foothills by James Marshall, local merchant Sam Brannan rushed to open a store near the Sacramento River to take advantage of the convenient waterfront location. What was then called Sutter’s Embarcadero was soon known as the City of Sacramento and now Old Sacramento. The city rapidly grew into a trading center for miners outfitting themselves for the gold fields. Early Sacramento’s waterfront location was

Top: The Old Sacramento area of downtown Above: Sutter’s Fort is now a downtown park

prime for commercial success, but was prone to severe flooding. The city also fell victim to repeated fires engulfing its hastily constructed buildings composed mainly of wood and canvas. In 1850 the new city experienced its first devastating flood, and in 1852, the city was again wiped out by high water. It was apparent that drastic measures would have to be taken if it was to be saved.

In the mid-1960’s, a plan was set forth to redevelop the area and through it, the first historic district in the West was created. Today, with 53 historic buildings, Old Sacramento has more buildings of historic value condensed into its 28 acres than most areas of similar size in the west. The area has flourished and is once again a thriving commercial center. Many restaurants, shops, clubs and a comedy club line the wooden sidewalks of a popular hangout for Sacramento locals and tourists alike.


PROFESSIONAL SPORTS Sacramento is home to a wide variety of professional sports - from basketball to baseball and football to soccer. The highlight of that group is the Sacramento Kings. The local NBA franchise features players such as Tyreke Evans, DeMarcus Cousins and Jimmer Fredette. The Kings play at Power Balance Pavilion in Natomas, a neighborhood north of downtown Sacramento. The Sacramento River Cats - the AAA affiliate of the Oakland A’s - play home games from April through early September at Raley Field in West Sacramento. The local professional sports scene also features the United Football League’s Sacramento Mountain Lions, which play their home games on campus at Hornet Stadium, and the Sacramento Gold FC soccer club. The Folsom Rodeo is a popular event each summer, as well as the Tour of California bike race and many golf tournaments.

Top: The Sacramento Kings play at Power Balance Pavilion, just 15 minutes from campus. Above: The Sacramento River Cats - the Triple-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics - play games at Raley Field.


SACRAMENTO INTERNATIONAL Unlike many universities around the country, Sacramento State is just 15 minutes away from an international airport. Student-athletes benefit with easy travel schedules to road games. Sacramento International Airport (SMF), Northern California’s gateway to the world, is served by 12 airlines offering nonstop and direct flights to cities throughout North America. On October 6, 2012, SMF will open Central Terminal B, a new, state-of-the art terminal and concourse featuring an exciting mix of local and national retail and restaurant brands. Aeromexico, Alaska, American, Frontier, Hawaiian, Horizon, Jet Blue and Southwest will serve passengers from Central Terminal B. Continental, Delta, United and US Airways will serve Passengers from Terminal A. Please see www.smf.aero for more information about the airport or follow them on Twitter and Facebook (SacIntlAirport).

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION The Sacramento Regional Transit District operates 64 bus routes and 37.5 miles of light rail 365 days a year using 76 light rail vehicles, 182 buses and 11 shuttle vans. Buses operate daily from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. every 15 to 75 minutes, depending on the route. Light rail trains begin operation at 4 a.m. Blue Line and Gold Line trains operate until 10:30 p.m. The Gold Line’s University/65th station is just two blocks away from the Sacramento State campus. Students receive a free ride pass. The Hornet Express Shuttle bus also runs from the 65th street station and other locations near campus. During the school year, the Hornet Night Shuttle provides free taxi service backand-forth from campus. An Amtrak rail line also runs into downtown Sacramento, with the station serving the California Zephyr Line, the Coast Starlight Line, the San Joaquin Line, and the Capitol Corridor Line.

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA Sacramento is centrally located to all the best Northern California has to offer.

Above: One of the many waterfalls located in

A 90-minute drive west is the San Francisco Bay Area, a beautiful, bustling metropolitan area of 7.4 million people. Also two hours away, to the east of campus, is pristine Lake Tahoe, which offers world class skiing and snowboarding in the winter plus watersports and beaches in the summer. A three hour drive south of Sacramento is the famous Yosemite National Park, home of three 2,000+ foot waterfalls.
