THE BIG SKY CONFERENCE

The Big Sky Conference is an NCAA Division I member in all sports, with member institutions classified in the Football Championship Subdivision (formally I-AA). The Big Sky celebrates its 50th year of athletic competition in 2012-13 with the addition of two new universities. After spending six years as a nine-team league, the league has expanded to 11 teams for the upcoming season. North Dakota and Southern Utah haved joined the league in all sports while Cal Poly and UC Davis are affiliates for football only, making the Big Sky a 13-team football league. In addition to the new schools, the Big Sky includes Eastern Washington, Idaho State, Montana, Montana State, Northern

Arizona, Northern Colorado, Portland State, Sacramento State and Weber State. Northern Colorado was the newest member of the league, having joined the conference in 2006. The Big Sky was established in 1963 by six charter members – Idaho, Idaho State, Gonzaga, Montana, Montana State and Weber State. Those six schools formed the foundation of the Big Sky before the league expanded in 1970 by adding Boise State and Northern Arizona. Gonzaga left the league in 1979 and was replaced by Nevada, which gave the league eight members. The conference grew to nine schools in 1987 with the addition of Eastern Washington. The 1990s saw change in the makeup of the league, beginning in 1992 when Nevada departed and put the Big Sky

back at eight teams. In 1996 Boise State and Idaho left and the conference added Portland State, Sacramento State and Cal State Northridge. The Big Sky maintained nine teams for five years before Cal State Northridge departed in the spring of 2001. The Big Sky spreads across nine states, spanning from the Pacific Ocean to the Rocky Mountain Front. The Big Sky is represented along the entire west coast with schools in Washington, Oregon and California. League schools also range up and down the Rocky Mountains with institutions in Montana, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, North Dakota and Colorado. Of the eight western-most states in the contiguous United States only one, Nevada, is not represented in the Big Sky.

HEAD COACH RANDY DEDINI Experience: Sixth Season Alma Mater: Sonoma State, 1993 Career Record: 44-36-15 (16-11-8 Big Sky)

Randy Dedini is in his sixth season as head coach of the Sacramento State women’s soccer team. Dedini, who took over the squad in 2007, has guided the Hornets to unprecedented success, including two NCAA Tournament appeareances and two conference titles, both firsts in school history. Dedini, who has a career record of 44-36-15 (16-11-8 Big Sky), has guided Sacramento State to winning conference records in four of his first five seasons, including a regular season title in 2007. The Hornets also won the Big Sky Conference Tournament title in 2007 and again in 2010 to earn the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. Dedini has mentored 22 first or second team all-Big Sky selections, including offensive player of the year Katie McCoy in 2007 and conference Golden Boot (point leader in conference games) winners McCoy (2007) and Kim Kemper (2008). McCoy and Elece McBride were named Big Sky Tournament MVPs in 2007 and 2010, respectively. Dedini, a former goalkeeper at Sonoma State, helped mold local product Savannah Abercrombie into one of the top goalies the Big Sky has ever seen. Abercrombie tacked on six more shutouts as a senior in 2011, pushing her career total to 29, both a conference and school record. Abercrombie finished her stellar four-year career with a 30-28-9 record, 282 saves and a sparkling 0.92 goals against average. Overall, the Hornets went 6-9-2 in 2011, but are poised for a big year in 2012 with six starters and 10 total letterwinners returning. Dedini took home Big Sky Conference Coach of the Year honors in 2010 and capped off his fourth season at the helm of the Sacramento State program with his second conference championship. Dedini and the Hornets defeated No. 1 seed and host Northern Arizona, 1-0, in the tournament championship game to clinch their second league title in four seasons. The Hornets posted a 9-10-1 record in 2010, capping off a late-charging season with wins over Portland State in the semifinals and NAU in the championship match of the Big Sky Conference Tournament. The Hornets met No. 1 ranked Stanford in the first round of the 2010 NCAA Tournament, losing 3-0. Sacramento State, which had the top offense in the conference with 34 goals scored, was the No. 3 seed in the Big Sky Tournament after going 4-3-0 in conference play during the regular season. Larot was named first team all-conference and the Golden Boot winner after leading the Hornets and the conference with 10 goals. Sacramento State went 8-5-5 in 2009 (3-2-2 Big Sky) in Dedini’s third season as head coach. The Hornets had the stingiest defense in the conference, allowing just 13 total scores while netting 20 goals. Abercrombie was three times named Big Sky Defensive Player of the Week and seven players were given all-conference honors, including a first-team selection for defender Cori Shreve. The team finished the 2008 campaign with a 9-8-2 overall record, including a 3-3-1 mark in Big Sky Conference play. Two Hornets, Kemper and Kara Taylor, earned first team all-Big Sky honors, while four others earned honorable mention accolades. Kemper also became the second straight Hornet to win the Big Sky Golden Boot award, given to the league’s scoring leader. In his first season as head coach, Dedini guided the Hornets to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history after collecting their first-ever Big Sky Conference Tournament title. The Hornets also won the Big Sky regular season title in 2007 for the first time in school history while posting a program-record 12 wins. For his efforts, Dedini earned Big Sky Conference Coach of the Year honors - the first head man in program history to do so. Dedini oversaw nine Hornets who earned all-Big Sky honors during his first season, including McCoy, the Big Sky Offensive MVP. McCoy was also named Big Sky Tournament MVP, and earned the conference’s Golden Boot award for leading the league in goals.

As an assistant from 2004-06, Dedini oversaw the team’s ascension into the top of the Big Sky standings. During the fall of 2006, the women’s program reached the Big Sky Tournament championship game for the first time in program history. The team’s 10-7-4 record was also a then program-best until the 2007 team bettered that win total. In 2006, a highly-touted recruiting class made major contributions during the year. The program’s 30 goals during the season were fueled by Dedini’s aggressive offensive approach and the ability of the newcomers to contribute immediately. Sacramento State outshot its opponents 172-106. Dedini first started as the goalkeepers coach for the Hornets in 2004. During that year, freshman keeper Brittany Auernig was named rookie of the year after making eight starts and 59 saves. Dedini made the move to top assistant in 2005. The Hornets’ improved recruiting efforts and change in philosophy paid off with a then program-best second place finish in the conference standings and an 8-8-3 overall record. The team also advanced to the Big Sky Tournament for the first time since 2001. In his own playing career, Dedini competed at American River JC before transferring to Sonoma State. Dedini had two standout seasons for the Seawolves as the starting goalkeeper and graduated with a degree in kinesiology. A second team All-American in 1993, Dedini posted a schoolrecord 13 shutouts that season, leading Sonoma State to a 17-3-2 record. He currently ranks second in school history with 21 shutouts and his career goals-against-average of 0.75 is by far the best in school history. The Seawolves inducted Dedini into the Sonoma State Athletics Hall of Fame in 2008 and is widely regarded as the best keeper in school history. After graduation, Dedini played in Major League Soccer for the Colorado Rapids and the Kansas City Wizards (now Sporting KC). After his MLS career, Dedini spent five years playing with the Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the A-League (now United Soccer Leage), earning honors such as team MVP, Iron Man and the century award for breaking the 100-cap mark. In all, Dedini played professional soccer for 11 seasons. While playing for the Riverhounds, Dedini served as the assistant coach for the men’s varsity soccer team at Quaker Valley High School in Pittsburgh, Pa., helping the squad to the 2002 state championship. Dedini is a Northern California native, graduating from Vacaville High School in 1988. He and his wife, Katie, have two daughters, Jordyn and Jaycie, and one son, Jake.

ASST. COACH MARY TRIGG Experience: Second Season Alma Mater: Fresno State, 2007

Mary Trigg is in her second season as assistant coach for the Sacramento State women’s soccer team. In her first season with the Hornets, Trigg helped land one of the largest recruiting classes in school history. Trigg and head coach Randy Dedini signed 12 newcomers for the 2012 season, including players from California, Utah and Washington. Before joing the Hornets, Trigg spent three seasons as an assistant at San Francisco State, helping the Gators to their first-ever California Collegiate Athletic Association title and NCAA Div. II Tournament appearance. She also coordinated the Gators’ recruiting efforts, signing a class of 13 in 2010. She also served as head coach of the Alpine Strikers club team. Trigg, a 2007 graduate of Fresno State, played on the Bulldogs’ undefeated 2006 Western Athletic Conference title team and in two NCAA Tournaments. She was named Academic all-WAC three straight seasons from 2004-06. After her collegiate career, Trigg played professionally for the San Francisco Nighthawks of the Women’s Premier Soccer League (WPSL). She holds her Advanced National Diploma along with her NSCAA National Coaching License. Trigg received her bachelor’s degree in public relations from Fresno State and earned her master’s degree in sports management with an emphasis in collegiate athletics administration from California (Pa.) University. Trigg is a native of Santa Clara, Calif. and graduated from Santa Clara High School. 10

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.

His vision of broad success in the department has come to fruition over the last six years, when the Hornets have won at least five conference championships each year, combining for 39 during that six-year time frame. That includes an unprecedented eight conference titles during the 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2010-11 academic years. In addition, the program won the Big Sky Conference¹s all-sports points championship in 2010-11, and has claimed four Big Sky Women¹s AllSports Trophies in the last five years. Academically, all 20 of Sacramento State¹s programs exceeded the NCAA¹s Academic Progress Rate (APR) requirements in 2010-11, including four teams that finished among the top 10 percent nationally in their sport. Football, men¹s and women¹s cross country, women¹s indoor track and field, and women¹s outdoor track and field produced the highest APR score among the Big Sky Conference then nine institutions.

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. The programs of Athletic Academic Services, Life Skills and Student-Athlete Development, and NCAA Compliance and Financial Services combine to provide student-athletes with the support to develop as independent and successful

young adults and the skills to achieve their academic goals, to persist towards graduation, and to meet all NCAA eligibility requirements. The SARC staff helps student-athletes navigate through many of the campus’ academic procedures and policies, understand NCAA rules compliance and eligibility requirements, and provide services that place student welfare and the development of the whole student as a top priority.

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING The strength and conditioning program has the following goals for our student-athletes: • To be the best physically prepared team each game. • To be the best mentally prepared team each game. • To ready for each contest by matching workout tempo to pace of a game. • To emphasize ground based exercises: applying maximum amount of force through the ground as fast as possible to move quicker, run faster, jump higher, get stronger and be more explosive. • Decrease the chance of injury. • To learn to compete under adversity. • To be winners on and off the field as a team and individually. The three principles used by the strength and conditioning staff:

Director Jared Nessland

Assistant Erin Wick

Assistant Tom DiStasio

Assistant Kyle Aber

• HOW TO - Proper technique. • HOW FAST - Speed after great technique. • HOW MUCH - Load, frequency, time, weight, reps, distance and work-rest ratio. The Sacramento State strength and conditioning staff utilizes both the Broad Fieldhouse weight room plus the Hornet Stadium turf and track to conduct workouts. The Broad features 10 Olympic platforms, a large dumbbell area, and numerous machine weights to help strengthen studentathletes and is large enough for 50 student-athletes to work in a circuit. The facility also has equipment used for rehabilitation purposes. Becoming a champion and winning championships is a 52-week commitment. There is no offseason. We always strive to get better.

GET TO KNOW SACRAMENTO

The famous Tower Bridge connects the Capitol to West Sacramento and Raley Field.


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.

The California Assembly chamber is located at the opposite end of the building. Its green tones are based on those of the British House of Commons, the lower house. The dais rests along a wall shaped like an “E”, with the central projection housing the rostrum. Along the cornice appears a quotation from Abraham

Lincoln in Latin: legislatorum est justas leges condere (“It is the duty of legislators to pass just laws”). Public tours are conducted daily, on the hour, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For tour information, call (916) 324-0333.


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 plus 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 campus and beyond to Folsom.


OLD SACRAMENTO 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.

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. 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

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. Today, “Old Sac” 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, Thomas Robinson and Jimmer Fredette. The Kings play in Natomas, a neighborhood north of downtown Sacramento. The Sacramento River Cats - the AAA affiliate of the Oakland Athletics - 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, who play their home games at Raley Field, 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 local golf tournaments.

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 direct flights to cities throughout North America and beyond. On October 6, 2011, SMF opened 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.
