Johnson County Community College Golf Media Guide / 2008-09

Past success of the program dictates such high yearly goals for the squad. The Cavaliers have competed in 1 straight NJCAAs and finished among the top five in conference and district play in each season of head coac Lafayette Norwood’s tenure. The goals for the 2008-09 season will be the same as always, play for the Jayhawk Conference and District III titles, and compete in the NJCAA Championship. Norwood’s philosophy to accomplish those goals will also remain the same. Norwood stresses to each of his teams to focus on one shot at a time, and not dwell on a bad shot or try t make up for one. That philosophy helped JCCC persevere through a difficult schedule and remain focussed on their goal to com­ pete each week and contend for a top spot. By the end of the regular season, JCCC found itself near for the to spot in the conference, only to finish second by one point. The team went on to have a successful postseason, plac­ ing 14th nationally, while posting some of the top team and individuals scores in the championship in JCCC gol history. The JCCC golf team returns to the links in early September with the anticipation of contending for anothe Jayhawk Conference title, and qualifying for an 14th straight trip to the NJCAA National Tournament in late May.

season outlook

When a student-athlete signs to play golf at Johnson County Community College, there are two things that are almost certain to happen. JCCC will be in the hunt for the conference and district titles, and the team will com­ pete in the NJCAA Golf Championship.

“Our goals every year are the same,” Norwood said. “Time will tell whether or not these goals are realistic for this team. I’m excited about this coming season. This group has a tremendous amount of ability. They are a deter­ mined group, and want to leave their mark on the program. We ought to challenge for every tournament title this year.” Leading the 2008-09 Cavaliers golf team is Miles Christensen, the only player back from last year’s squad Christensen has a solid freshman campaign, earning second-team All-Kansas Jayhawk Conference honors. He fin­ ished ninth overall in the conference standings, and was third on the team in stroke average at 77.2. He tied for the team lead for rounds in the 70s with 23, and tied for second with five top 10 finishes.

Miles Christensen

While Norwood will look to his lone veteran to lead this year’s squad, he will look to his six newcomers to make their presence known this season. Freshmen Nathan Allison of Topeka, Kan., Garrett Carver of Burlingto Junction, Mo., Josh Dennis of Wichita, Kan., Trevor Johanson of Maize, Kan., Matt Puhr of Olathe, Kan., and Bryce Rowe of Baxter Springs, Kan., each bring solid prep credentials to JCCC, and are ready to raise their level of play in their first collegiate season.

In order for the Cavaliers to contend for a conference championship they must get off to a strong start when the step foot on the tee box Sept 8th at Mariah Hills Golf Course in Dodge City, Kan., the first of six conference matches. The Cavaliers will also compete in the Sterling Invitational Sept. 22, and the KCKCC Blue Devil Fall Classic in the fall. The Sterling Invitational will be held at Cottonwood Hills in Hutchinson, site of the 2009 Kansas Jayhawk Conference Championship. The Cavaliers open the spring campaign with two big tournament hosted by the University of Central Missouri (March 16-17) and Bethel College (March 29­ 30). Johnson County will use those tournaments to prepare for the stretch run in the conference race. Three conference tournaments are scheduled for the spring, however, JCCC is not in the rotation to host a match this season. The Cavaliers cap the season May 19-22, at the NJCAA Championship at the Hampton Cove River Course in Huntsville, Ala, part of the famed Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. JCCC will look to crack the top-10 for just the third time in its existence. The Cavaliers finished 14th at this venue last year.

Lafayette Norwood

Head Coach • 17th Season • Southwestern College Under the leadership of Lafayette Norwood, the Johnson County Community College men’s golf program has steadily progressed and is now a force to be reckoned with in both the Jayhawk Conference and the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). Now in his 17th season as head coach of the Cavaliers golf program, Norwood has already set a standard of excellence that is unmatched by his predecessors. Norwood has led the Cavaliers to 13 straight berths in the NJCAA National Tournament, a first-time achievement for the Cavaliers golf program. In the 1995-96 campaign, Norwood led JCCC to their first NJCAA berth in 24 years, finishing 24th nationally. A year later, the Cavaliers received their first national ranking, holding down the 19th spot in the final poll of the season. Two weeks later, the JCCC linksters improved one spot, finishing 18th at Alta Mesa Country Club in Chandler, Ariz. The Cavaliers fired a team total of 1,230, a per player average of 76 per round, marking their best performance in a national tournament. In 1999, the Cavaliers nearly knocked off national power Dodge City to win the district championship then followed with an 18th-place finish at the NJCAA Championship.

The 1999-2000 season was one of the best ever in program history. JCCC won three tournaments, including a firstever district championship, bettering conference champion Butler County by two strokes. The team followed with a 13th-place finish at the NJCAA Championship, the best in JCCC history. Eight years ago, JCCC made a charge in the second half to battle Dodge City for the conference championship. JCCC won two tournaments, and finished runner-up in another. The Cavaliers finished with 29.5 points, just 2.5 behind Dodge City. JCCC went on to place third in the district and 18th at the NJCAA Championship. Seven years ago was the crowning moment of the Norwood era. The Cavaliers, led by a record six all-conference per­ formers, captured the program’s first Jayhawk Conference title. They followed with a runner-up finish at districts and a 14th-place finish at nationals, second-best all-time at JCCC. The 2002-03 campaign JCCC qualified for its eighth consecutive national tournament, and led by Eric Klinger, the Cavaliers finished 14th in the NJCAA. The sophomore fired a 299 72-hole total, which tied a school record for best score in a national tournament. His 27th-place finish was the best in JCCC history. The 2003-04 team etched its place in JCCC history, finishing in the top-10 at the NJCAA Championships for the first time in team history. Tom Clifford led the way placing in a tie for 18th, the highest individual in team history. Close behind were Jay Kramer, Brian Donnelly and Eric Byers, who finished 24th, 34th and 34th respectively. The 2004-05 season proved another year for the annuals, as JCCC recorded its highest national finish, placing seventh, while witnessing the first All-American performance in the program’s history. Jay Kramer fired the best tournament score in team history, and played his way into a tie for seventh-place, which earned him second-team All-American. The team also captured its second conference title, won five tournaments and had five players gar­ ner all-conference honors. Three years ago, JCCC slipped a little, placing 13th at nationals. However, it proved to a record setting appearance as JCCC set team and individual records for scores, both in a round and overall. Two seasons ago, JCCC was again a dominant force. The team won a school record six tour­ naments, and tied for the conference champi­ onship, but lost a five-player one hole playoff against Dodge City for the trophy. The team went on to post a tie for 12th at nationals with a 1191 total, third-best all-time. The previous mark was 76.0. Additionally, five individuals earned all-conference honors, the second-high­ est total in team history. Norwood has amassed an overall record of of 1,335-591-4. Five years ago his squad recorded a record of 121-22, the best season at JCCC. In addition, the Cavaliers won a record five tourna­ ments. In 2004-05 JCCC again won five tour­ nament. Last year, JCCC won a record six tour­ naments and Norwood's squad posted a record 136 wins. In all, Norwood-led teams have won 31 tournaments in his 15 seasons. The list of individual honors won at JCCC under Norwood is just as impressive and includes one All-American, two National AllTournament performers, 45 All-Jayhawk

Norwood’s Year-by-Year Totals

•lost one hole playoff for title

Conference selections. Among those is two-time, first-team pick Kirk Schneider, who set a school record with 43 points during the 1994-95 campaign. Schneider closed out the season with a 67th-place finish at nationals. Another is Scott McCoy, who five seasons ago became the first individual from JCCC win the conference point title. McCoy finished with 39.5 points. He also set 18-hole and 36-hole scoring records at JCCC. Four years ago saw the emergence of Chris McGown, who finished third in the standings and registered a stroke average of 75.8, No. 2 all-time at JCCC. Four years ago he became the second JCCC player to win the individual conference point championship. He also became the first JCCC golfer to be selected the male athlete of the year by the JCCC coaching staff. Three years ago, Brian Donnelly etched his name in the record books, posting the best stroke average in JCCC at 75.3 while setting a new 18-hole scor­ ing record of 66. He earned all-conference and became the second JCCC golfer to be selected the male athlete of the year. In 2004-05, Jay Kramer became the third golfer to be selected JCCC Male Athlete of the Year. He led the squad in tournament wins (2), top five fin­ ishes (6), stroke average (76.6) and rounds in the 70s (20). He also earned first-team all-conference, second-team All-American and National AllTournament accolades. The 2005-06 season saw Matt Salome and Andrew Manley finish under par at nationals. Salome set a record with a 9-under 279 total, good for a 20th­ place finish. He finished with a stroke average of 76.2, fourth-best all-time. Manley finished with a 5-under 283 effort at nationals. He also set the single round record in the championship by a JCCC golfer, firing a 67. Last season Salome finished tied for 22nd at nationals with a 72-hole total of 290, six-over par. That ranks as the third-best score posted by a Cavalier in a national championship, and his 22nd-place finish is the fourth-best effort posted by a Cavalier. On the season, Salome finished with a stroke average of 74.0 with 30 rounds of golf played. That stroke average set a new season mark at JCCC, breaking the old record of 75.4. He also set a new career mark with a stroke average of 75.1 with 60 rounds played. Manley also concluded his career, posting a stroke aver­ age of 76.2, the third-best total in team history. Other players who have had success in the conference and at nationals are Steve Priest and Keith Early. Priest led the Cavaliers in 1997-98. He won one tournament, finished runner-up twice, garnered all-conference hon­ ors and placed 55th at nationals, the third highest finish in the program’s history at the time. Early became JCCC’s first player to earn first-team all-conference honors in 1993. One year later, he became the first twotime, all-conference selection, again earning first-team honors. He closed out his career with a 78th-place national finish. Norwood’s devotion to his student-athletes’ success off the course is just as important to their success on it. During his 15 years, he has had a number of his student-athletes receive academic honors for posting grade point averages above 3.0. In 1997, Norwood had his first student-athlete recognized as a NJCAA Academic All-American, when Mike Maskill closed out his collegiate career at JCCC with a grade point above 3.6. In 2003, McGown and Eric Klinger became JCCC’s second and third golfers to earn Academic All-American, and McGown became the first to earn Distinguished Academic All-American with a 4.0 grade point aver­ age. Matt Holton became JCCC’s fourth player to earn Academic AllAmerican in 2004, and last year, Joey Krsnich became the fifth player to earn Academic All-America accolades. Norwood’s coaching career have not always been just limited to the golf. As a guard playing for the immortal Ralph Miller at Wichita East High

School, Lafayette Norwood learned from a legend then, developed his own legendary career as a basketball coach. A 1952 graduate at Wichita East, Norwood helped lead his alma mater to a Kansas state championship in 1951. That team today is still considered one of the best in the state. Norwood continued his progression as a standout player at Arkansas City (Kan.) Junior College (now Cowley County Community College) where he was successful in both basketball and football for the Tigers. Norwood amassed 876 points, the second highest career total at the school. That total currently stands 16th all-time at Cowley County. An NJCAA first-team AllAmerican in 1953, Norwood led the Tigers to a runner-up finish in the national tournament. He capped his career with the Tigers the following season by leading them to a seventh-place finish in the national tournament, again earning All-America accolades, becoming the first two-time AllAmerican in any sport in school history. Playing tailback for the Tigers football team, Norwood earned all-conference accolades as well. He was inducted to the Tiger Athletic Hall of Fame in 1994. He then transferred to Southwestern College, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education. In his first season at Southwestern, Norwood helped the Builders to a 20-8 record, a CIC championship, and a berth in the NAIA National Tournament. It was Southwestern’s final CIC title before moving to the KCAC, and its final appearance in the National Tournament. Norwood was named to the All-CIC team and All-Tournament second-team that season. After graduation, he earned his master’s degree in education at Wichita State University. In September 1993, Southwestern College inducted Norwood into its Hall of Fame. Norwood continued playing basketball playing one season of semi-professional basketball with the Wichita Vickers in the National Industrial Basketball League. Norwood also played 17 years of A.A.U. basketball with the May Builders in Arkansas City. Each season, the team would compete in the Phillips 66 Oilers Tournament in Ponca City, Okla. Norwood is a member of that tournament’s Hall of Fame. Norwood’s 48-year coaching career began in 1957 when he took over the Wichita Biddy Basketball team. Norwood led one squad to a championship in the World Biddy Basketball Tournament. He also had teams finish second, third, fourth and sixth. In 1968, Norwood was hired an assistant at Wichita East, and a year later he took over the program at Wichita Heights High School. Norwood quickly established himself as one of the top prep coaches in Kansas with an extremely successful eight-year tenure. He led his teams to a 109-56 record and three city championships. His 1975-76 squad finished runner-up in the state tournament, and the 1976-77 team was undefeated and won the 6-A state title. That title enabled Norwood to share with coaching legend Ralph Miller, the distinction of being the only two people in Kansas history to have played on and coached a men’s basketball state championship team. In addition to his basketball duties, Norwood also coached the Wichita Heights men’s and women’s golf teams, a position he held for seven years. Norwood led his men’s team to the state tournament three times. Following that memorable season, Norwood jumped to the collegiate ranks, serving as an assistant basketball coach to Ted Owens at the University of Kansas.

Norwood also has been extremely successful coaching Kansas A.A.U. boys teams. He has led five teams to top five finishes nationally, including two national championships. His team’s have also captured the Missouri Valley Championship in all but one season since 1989. Norwood’s pedigree reads like a Who’s Who in basketball.

Course Description

Quail Ridge Golf Course is nestled in the beautiful Walnut Valley of the Flint Hills, just south of Winfield, Kansas, famous as one of the 100 Best Small Towns in America. With its carpet-like fairways, ponds and creeks and feisty bent grass greens, Quail Ridge is a handsome course worthy of honors as well. That’s probably why we annually receive a four-star rating in Golf Digest’s Places to Play. This is a course that provides a real getaway experi­ ence, a place to escape the stress of the outside world on gentle bluegrass fair­ ways framed by tall trees and edged with creeks and luxuriant stands of native grasses. Take on our links-style doglegs, our water holes, our wellprotected greens, and you’ll agree that Quail Ridge provides an intriguing adventure for all levels of players.

Course Description

The Highlands Golf Club is a demanding course cut out of natural rollling sandhills. The 6,650-yard layout features undulating fairways lined with native tallgrass, wooded roughs and beautifully manicured bentgrass greens. The rough on this course is three-foot tall, and there is water that comes into play on 13 holes. The greens are average size and very fast, and the fairways are narrow. When the wind is blowing, this course plays very tough. Along with members and guests, the course is frequently visted by deer, turkey, geese and fox.

Course Description

Jug McSpadden, creator of Dub’s Dread Golf Club, had a vision. That vision was to create a golf club that offered a superb design and premier playing con­ ditions. Dub’s Dread has always been considered a golf club for the purist and offering a stern test for even the best players. Dub’s Dread was listed as the longest and toughest course in the United States in its prime. Today, the course plays shorter, but at 7,155 yards, it is still long. Golf Digest Magazine rated it as “one of the best new courses in America” in 1990. It’s natural beau­ ty shows in the strategic bunkers, immaculate fairways and greens and the winding creeks that stretch throughout this densely wooded area.

Course Description

Swope Memorial Golf Course, Kansas City’s premier classic golf course, was designed in 1934 by legendary architect A.W. Tillinghast. Swope Memorial features rolling fairways, beautiful mature trees and small undulating greens. Once home of the PGA Tour’s Kansas City Open during the 1940s, Swope Memorial is the only public course in the Kansas City area to have hosted a PGA Tour event. Golfing legends Ben Hogan and Sam Snead have been challenged by this historic layout. In 2005, the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship was held at Swope Memorial, its first USGA event. The golf course is a par 72 and measures 6,274 yards. Swope’s unique layout includes zoysia fairways, undulated greens and many sand and grass bunkers.

Course Description

Falcon Lakes is the newest premiere public course in the Kansas City area. Located 5 miles North of I-70 and ¼ mile West of Highway 7, it is conve­ niently located to downtown Kansas City and Overland Park. This beautiful design is owned and operated by Falcon Golf Management. Designed by Carter Morrish, this championship layout was sculpted out of the subtle rolling terrain that is so familiar in the Kansas plains. Various mogals strate­ gically placed throughout the course, the always manicured zoysia fairways, tees and bentgrass greens challenge golfers of all skill levels and their shotmaking ability. Falcon Lakes is a pleasure to play over and over again. This par 72 course, measuring 7049 yards from the back tees, is a challenge. For those less daring, choose one of the multiple sets of tee boxes and create a player-friendly golf course that is as demanding as each golfer desires.

Course Description Hesston Golf Park is one of Kansas’ most popular public golf courses. Designed in 1975 by architect Frank Hummel, this 18-hole par 71 layout presents a challenge to all levels of golf. Hesston Park is not the most diffi­ cult courses to play and layout is relatively flat, but what makes Hesston Park so great is that it isn’t trying to be more than what it is, an accessible, economical municipal golf course. Golf Digest magazine ranked Hesston Park the best dollar value in the state, and was given four stars, the only four-star, Top 100 municipal golf courses in Kansas. The fairways at Hesston Park are quite wide open and forgiving. With very little along the lines of out­ of-bounds or fairway bunker or water hazard, tee shots are certainly not a player’s biggest worry. There are two distinguishing characteristics at Hesston that truly set it apart from other plains courses. The first is the the par 3’s average 200 yards from the back tees. The other characteristic is every green on the course is elevated.

Course Description

Sand Creek Station’s unique links-style design features plenty of mounding

encompassing the ben grass fairways and undulated greens uncharacteristic

of the courses in the area. The sanctity of the railroad has been preserved

surrounding the golf course to remind players of the history of the area.

Many holes are, as they say in Scotland, “hard by the cinders,” continuing a

century’s old tradition of golf bordering railways. Challenge number ten,

better known as “The Beast,” measures at 648 yards from the tips and is the

longest hole in the state of Kansas. Sand Creek was voted by Golf Magazine

as a “Top 10 New Courses You Can Play” for 2006. It was also voted the

second best course you can play in the state of Kansas by Golf Week

Magazine.

Course Description

At the northern terminus of the famous Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Huntsville is Hampton Cove, the River Course, the only Robert Trent Jones layout without a sin­ gle bunker. The River Course is laid out on former soybean fields in the flood plain of the Flint River. The River is a throwback to the way courses were built long ago - the dirt was merely pushed up to create the greens and tees, leaving all else, including mas­ sive oak trees, as is. Playing the course one forgets they are in the city. Sixteen of the 18 holes on the River Course feature water. The River Course also is home to a giant black oak behind the 18th green (first two pictures below) that is said to be the third oldest tree in the state at 250 years old. Unfortunately, a recent storm destroyed the old tree and it will soon be cleared from the site. The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail is the largest golf construction project every attempted any where in the world. It stretches from one end of Alabama (our end) to the other, with 378 holes of worldclass golf at eight sites. The Trail was named as among the Top 50 Golf destinations in the world by Golf Digest magazine.

huntsville, alabama

Johnson County Community College Golf Media Guide / 2008-09

NJCAA Championship A look at Hunstville, Alabama The high-tech city of Huntsville which sprawls at the foot of a mountain in North Alabama is equally at home in the 19th century or the 21st. Huntsville's tourist attractions reflect the her­ itage of Alabama's first English-speaking city, the strife of the American Civil War, and the accomplishments of America's rock­ et scientists. Huntsville's population truly reflects international cultures. Of the 180,000 city residents, more than 10 percent are natives of other countries. More than 100 languages and dialects are spoken here. In addition to the German rocket scientists who arrived in 1950, for example, Huntsville is home to the first U.S. plant built by Korea's largest corporation. Several Japanese-owned companies operate manufacturing plants here. Scores of foreign national flags ring the roof of the headquarters of an international computer manufacturing firm headquartered in Huntsville. Huntsville's visitor attractions offer a wealth of activities for the native and international visitor alike. Visitors who want to be "astronauts for a day" can sample astronaut training activities at the sprawling U.S. Space and Rocket Center. The hands-on showcase of space technology is the state's largest tourist attraction. It is home to the internationally known U.S. Space Camp which has franchise operations in Japan, Belgium and Canada. A variety of city museums downtown and an outstanding symphony orchestra offer rich cultural opportunities involving the arts. The leg­ endary Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, which encompasses 21 courses in eight cities in Alabama, begins here at the 54-hole Hampton Cove Golf Course. Hampton Cove features two championship courses surrounded by mountains and lakes. Alabama now ranks fifth in the nation for public golf courses per res­ ident. The Birthplace of Alabama Pioneer John Hunt, for whom the city is named, occupied a cabin alongside a spring here in 1805. A town soon flourished and was the largest in the Alabama Territory by 1819. That year the leaders of the Alabama Territory met here to petition the U.S. Congress to grant Alabama statehood. The recreated 1819 Alabama Constitution Village, a block from the courthouse square, commemorates the historic events through tours given by costumed guides. Huntsville was the cotton trading center of the Tennessee Valley during the 1840s and '50s when planters and merchants originally from Virginia and the Carolinas built impressive town homes. LeRoy Pope, who purchased land at auction and donated land for t he town, originally picked the name Twickenham. He wanted to honor the London suburb which was home to poet Alexander Pope, a relative. However, following the War of 1812, the name reverted to Huntsville to honor the first white man who settled here. Walking tours of the Twickenham historic district, with the state's largest collection of pre-Civil War homes, are popular year-round. Because many wealthy businessmen remained loyal to the Union at the start of the Civil War, the town was spared the destruction by occupying armies. Plan also to visit the 1819 Weeden House Museum and the 1860 Huntsville Depot Museum. A unique shopping opportunity is offered at the 1879 Harrison Brothers Hardware Store. Restored 19th century cabins and farm buildings are displayed at the mountaintop Burritt Museum and Park. America's Space Capital Huntsville was still a cotton market town of 16,437 people in 1950 when U.S. Sen. John Sparkman (who lived in Huntsville's historic Twickenham neighborhood) brought a band of German rocket scientists to Redstone Arsenal to develop rockets for the U.S. Army. By the end of the decade, Wernher von Braun's team had developed the rocket which orbited America's first satellite. They eventually put the first American in space and transported the first astronauts to the Moon. Redstone Arsenal is one of the U.S. Army's most important strategic posts. It is responsible for research, development, production and worldwide support of missiles, aviation, rockets and related programs. The influx of engineers, scientists and other technical specialists has transformed the small town into a cosmopolitan communi­ ty which nonetheless maintains its heritage and reputation for hospitality. For more historical information on Redstone Arsenal and Huntsville, visit www.redstone.army.mil/history. The Huntsville area remains one of the South's fastest-growing. The county's population is estimated at 260,000. It has the highest per capita income in the Southeast. Atlanta's is second. The nearby city of Madison, just west of Cummings Research Park, is experiencing rapid growth. The Hampton Cove area on U.S. 431 south is the fastest growing residential area within Huntsville's city limits. A legacy of the space program which benefits visitors is the renowned U.S. Space & Rocket Center. Guests can experience astronaut-training activities, feel simulated weightlessness and view large-screen movies filmed by astronauts in space. The Center's U.S. Space Camp attracts young people from throughout the world who spend a week experiencing space flight training and participate in mock space missions. It was Von Braun himself who inspired Space Camp. He suggested that the space museum develop an intensive youth science program to stimulate chidren's interest in math and science. Guided bus tours of the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center take visitors through large hangar-sized buildings such as where engineers are building the nation's first permanent space station. They also visit giant outdoor test stands where America's rockets have been test fired.

season review

Johnson County Community College Golf Media Guide / 2008-09

The Johnson County Community College men’s golf team entered the

2007-08 seson with a goal to cotend for a conference championship and

a top-10 finish at the NJCAA National Tornament. These are yearly

goals for the program. While the 2007-08 squad fell short of reaching

those milestones, they still produced a memorable season.

The Cavaliers went right down to the wire to determine the Kansas

Jayhawk Conference champino for 2007-08, falling in a playoff to

Hutchinson at the final coference tournament of season. While the

team finished second overall, sophomore Mike Elafros managed to take

home individual medalist honors as the top point producer in the con­ fernce. He is just the third JCCC player to earn this honor.

Additionally, three other players would garner all-conference accolades

as well. Sophomore Nate Sargent, freshman Miles Christensen and

Keith Erickson would earn second-team honors.

At the NJCAA Championship at The Hampson Dove River Course in

Huntsville, Ala., the golf team posted a 14th-place finish at the 2008

NJCAA Golf Championship at Hampton Cover River Course in

Huntsville, Ala., last week. The Cavaliers finished with a team total score

of 1255, the 10th-best total posted by a JCCC team in a national tour­ nament.

Individually, the Cavaliers were led by Erickson, who finished tied for

27th with a 72-hole total of 304, sixteen over par. That ranks tied for

the 14th-best score posted by a Cavalier in a national championship.

His 27th-place finish is the sixth-best effort posted by a Cavalier.

Erickson opened with an 82, but fought back with rounds of 72, 77 and

73. On the season, Erickson finished with a stroke average of 76.7 with

27 rounds of golf played. That stroke average ranks tied for 14th at

JCCC. He also ranks fifth all-time with a career stroke average of 76.6

with 55 rounds played.

Keith Erickson

Christensen finished in a tie for 48th with a final total of 312. He post­ ed rounds of 79, 82, 76 and 75. His 312 total ties for 30th all-time at

JCCC. Christensen finished his rookie campaign with a stroke average

of 77.2. That ranks 22nd for a season in JCCC history.

Elafros, the Jayhawk Conference individual medalist for 2007-08, fin­ ished in a tie for 64th with a 316 total. Elafros had rounds of 81, 79,

81 and 75. He finished the season with the team’s top stroke average of

75.9, which ranks him ninth all-time. He also finished his career with

a stroke average of 76.9, seventh-best in team history.

In team competition in 2007-08, JCCC won two tournaments, includ­ ing their own JCCC Desiganted at Sycamore Ridge Golf Club in the

spring seson. JCCC also had three runner-up finishes during the cam­ paign.

In all, the KJCCC is home to more than 3,000 stu­ dent-athletes on 233 teams in the 19 men’s and women’s KJCCC-sponsored sports. The men’s pro­ grams regulated by the conference include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, indoor/outdoor track and field, soccer, tennis and wrestling. The KJCCC-regulated women’s programs include basket­ ball, cross country, golf, indoor/outdoor track and field, soccer, softball, tennis and volleyball. Entering the 2007-08 competitive seasons for 10 men’s championships and 10 women’s title-attaining sports, KJCCC member institutions can boast of 110 NJCAA National Championships in 12 different men’s and women’s sports. However, the success of the conference from 1990 through the spring of 2007 is unprecedent­ ed. Of the 111 national titles, 76 have come during that span, 38 during the 1990s and another 38 in the first seven years of the new millennium. In addition, 16 of its 19 members have won at least one national cham­ pionship, and 12 have won two or more. The KJCCC has produced more than 4,000 NJCAA All-Americans and a number of athletes have contin­ ued to excel on the NAIA, NCAA, Olympic and pro­ fessional levels. At the 2004 Olympics, former Barton County athletes earned a total of seven medals, including three gold medals. Among that group was Veronica Campbell, who won gold in the 200-meters and 4x100, and bronze in the 100-meters for Jamaica, and former Cougar Derrick Brew ran a leg on USA’s gold medal 4x400 relay. Former Cowley baseball standouts Junior Spivey and Travis Hafner, and Fort Scott first baseman Adam LaRoche are making an impact at the Major League level, and former Kansas City Kansas sluggers David Segui and Kevin Young combined for 27 years of ser­ vice, 2,419 hits and 283 home runs at the Major League level. The Jayhawk Conference has also made an impact in the NFL, with 160 former players having played for all 32 teams in the league. Among that group include for­ mer Garden City running back Corey Dillon and for­ mer Coffeyville running back Mike Rozier, who also was the Heisman Trophy winner in 1983 at the University of Nebraska, and former Raven Brandon Jacobs, a starting running back for the 2008 World Champion New York Giants.

In professional basketball, 27 former players have played in the NBA. In 1999, former Barton County center Alek Radojevic made history when he was select­ ed in the first round by the Toronto Raptors with the 12th pick overall. On the women’s side, 10 former players have gone on to pro careers in the WNBA and ABL, including former Butler County guard Betty Lennox, who was the 2004 WNBA Finals MVP. Several former athletes also went on to pro career in sports different from what they played while attending KJCCC schools. Basketball players Marcus Pollard of

Seward County, James’ Buster” Douglas of Coffeyville and Steve Fritz of Hutchinson all went on to have suc­ cessful professional careers in other sports. Pollard has played 12 seasons at a tight end in the NFL. Douglas is a former undisputed world heavyweight boxing champion, and scored the biggest upset in the history of the sport by knocking out Mike Tyson in 1990 in Tokyo. Fritz was the 1997 U.S. national champion in the decathlon. He also hit the game-winning shot to give Hutchinson the 1988 national basketball title. Organized in 1923, the Jayhawk Community College Conference arose out of the special needs of Kansas community colleges to create an organization which would further the best interests of intercollegiate ath­ letics. Originally named the Kansas Public Junior College Association, the name Kansas Jayhawk Junior College Conference was adopted in 1962. Thirteen years later, the name as it is known today, the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference was adopt­ ed. Composed of five members at the onset, the conference has changed its makeup several times. Long respected as the leader in academics and athletics in the NJCAA, the conference today has grown to a membership of 19 community colleges from the state of Kansas, divided into two divisions, the East and West.

Did You Know? The idea for the NJCAA was conceived in 1937 at Fresno, Calif., and in 1938, the constitution was accepted and the NJCAA became a functioning orga­ nization. The initial activity sponsored by the NJCAA was track and field. The NJCAA was fast gaining national recognition, and in 1949, the NJCAA reorga­ nized by dividing the nation into 16 regions. Additionally, Hutchinson, Kan., became the site for the national office and the NJCAA Championship Basketball Tournament. The office remained in Hutchinson until 1985, when the NJCAA moved to Colorado Springs, Colo. Today, the NJCAA member­ ship consists of over 500 institutions and 45,000 stu­ dent-athletes.

2008 njcaa host course

Sunday-Friday, May 18-23, 2008 • Hampton Cove River Course on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail • Huntsville, Ala.

Course Description

At the northern terminus of the famous Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Huntsville is Hampton Cove, the River Course, the only Robert Trent Jones layout without a single bunker. The River Course is laid out on former soybean fields in the flood plain of the Flint River. The River is a throwback to the way courses were built long ago - the dirt was merely pushed up to create the greens and tees, leaving all else, including massive oak trees, as is. Playing the course one forgets they are in the city. Sixteen of the 18 holes on the River Course feature water. The River Course also is home to a giant black oak behind the 18th green (first two pictures below) that is said to be the third oldest tree in the state at 250 years old. Unfortunately, a recent storm destroyed the old tree and it will soon be cleared from the site. The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail is the largest golf construction project every attempted any where in the world. It stretches from one end of Alabama (our end) to the other, with 378 holes of world-class golf at eight sites. The Trail was named as among the Top 50 Golf destinations in the world by Golf Digest magazine.

His 294 total edged the record set by Tommy Clifford at the 2004 national tournament. Kramer’s 221 total for three rounds also was a team record, and his round of 69 is the lowest round recorded in a national tour­ nament. In fact, Kramer was the first player in the field to fire a round under 70. Eight other players later joined him in the third round. While Kramer’s 69 on Thursday was impressive, so was his 78 on Tuesday in extremely windy conditions. Only 28 of 105 players in the championship broke 80 in the opening round. For the season, Kramer registered nine top 10 finishes, including two victories. He also earned all-conference, team MVP and JCCC Male Athlete of the Year.

Johnson County Community College Golf Media Guide / 2008-09

Johnson County finished fifth overall in the District III Championship at Wild Horse Golf Club in Gothenburg, Neb., the team’s lowest highest finish since 1997. The Cavaliers were led by sopomore Keith Erickson. He placed in a tie for eighth overall with a 54-hole total of 227 (75, 75, 77). That effort earned him All-District honors. Officially, the 2008 District Tournament had no bearing on who qualified for the NJCAA Touranment. In 2004, the national tour­ naemnt became an open tournament to any program wishing to compete for the national title. However, in 2009, teams will again need to qualify for the NJCAA National Tournament.

PGA Players Two former Region VI/District Champions have gone on to compete on the PGA Tour. Steve Gotche, the 1980 winner from Barton County, made his PGA Tour debut in 2000, after earning his tour card by finishing among the top-15 money winners on the Nike Tour in 1999. Robert Russell, who won the the 1995 region and national titles for Kansas City Kansas, qualified for the 1999 U.S. Open held at Pinehurst’s No. 2 course. However, Russell did not make the cut. A former standout golfer at JCCC and a member of the first golf team, Randy Towner became the first person to play in a profes­ sional golf tournament in JCCC history. Towner, a current PGA Class A Head Golf Professional at Alvamar Golf Club, qualified for the 2007 United States Senior Open Championship at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wis., by winning a local qualifying tourna­ ment at Oakwood Country Club in June, 2007. The U.S. Senior Open was held July 5th­ 8th.

JCCC in Rolling Stone In the October 15 1998 issue of Rolling Stone mag­ azine, JCCC was listed as one of the most respected community colleges in the country, one that could be viewed as a guide to evaluating others. The article mentioned JCCC’s small classes, the high number of full-time professors, the college’s Career Center, the college’s ties with local businesses, and its curricula that responds to local needs, citing both the railroad and information technology programs as examples. In addition, to its recent pop status, JCCC has received a lot of recognition for educa­ tional excellence over the years.

Learning comes first at JCCC. Since its founding in 1969, Johnson County Community College has been committed to serving the needs of Johnson County residents for higher education and lifelong learning. The college seeks to provide educational leadership while responding to the identified needs of the community by providing high-quality education­ al programs that are accessible to all who can benefit from them. With over 19,000 credit students and an equal number of continuing education students enrolled each semester, JCCC is the state’s third largest institution of higher education and the largest of its 19 community colleges. JCCC is fully accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, and is a member of the League for Innovation. As it has grown, JCCC has added faculty and staff. There are now more than 730 full-time faculty and staff, with a ratio to students nearly identical to that of a decade ago. Many of our faculty have doctorates and almost all have master’s degrees. Faculty consistently receive top national awards for excellence in teaching and for developing innovative approaches to class­ room work. Innovation and excellence are the hallmarks of the academic program at JCCC. An outstanding faculty is the cornerstone of the institution. The 234-acre campus, which opened in 1972 with six buildings, is located at the center of the county at the intersection of College Boulevard and Quivira Road. In recent years, new buildings have been constructed at a steady pace. The Carlsen Center (originally the Cultural Educaton Center), completed in 1990, provides the county’s first performing arts complex and houses JCCC’s burgeoning community education program. The Classroom Laboratory Building, featuring a state-of-the-art computer lab, opened in January 1993. There are 19 major buildings on campus, including the Police Academy and Horticultural Science Center, constructed in 2001, and the recently constructed Regnier Center and the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, both which open in the fall, 2007. JCCC offers a full range of undergraduate credit courses that form the first two years of most college curricula. Class size averages 25 to 40 students, which is much lower than many larger colleges and universities. Courses are offered throughout the day and evening, and on Saturdays and at students’ convenience. Telecourses are available on videocassette or through the county’s cable television system. The college has more than 100 transfer agree­ ments with regional colleges and universities, which assure admittance without loss of time

The college’s Center for Business and Technology provides public seminars and contract training in management and supervisory skills and the lat­ est training available in computer software applications and information tech­ nology. The center also assists local companies in applying for grants available from the Kansas Department of Commerce to pay for workforce training for newly created jobs o jobs requiring new skills. JCCC has had tremendous success as an educational institution because of its commitment to the community. In 2003 the college received the Kansas Excellence Award, the highest level of recognition for quality given by the Kansas Award for Excellence Foundation. The KAE award is presented to organizations that have demonstrated through theirpractices and achievements the highest and most consistent level of excellence. Organizations recognized at this level are considered role models for other Kansas institutions. That’s JCCC.

JCCC Student Center

The hill in front of the Student Center is a popular place on cam­ pus, in warm or cold weather. The JCCC Student Center opened in 1999. Students find every­ thing they need – from academic advising through registration to financial aid – under one roof in JCCC’s Student Center.

Johnson County Community College Golf Media Guide / 2008-09

JCCC Academic Excellence

At JCCC, academic excellence is a priority. The academic program at JCCC provides student-athletes with the tools and skills necessary to achieve academic success.

The Johnson County Community College athletic staff knows what to look for in a prospective stu­ dent-athlete. To be a Cavalier is to have the deter­ mination to succeed – not only on the playing field but in the classroom as well. Balancing aca­ demic achievement with athletic success is a primary focus of Johnson County Community College athletics. To help achieve that balance, JCCC offers some of the best academic support services in college athletics. The purpose of the academic counseling program is to provide a well-organized and systematic approach to bal­ ancing the rigorous demands of academics and athletics at Johnson County. Many elements have gone into making Johnson County’s athletes champions in the classroom in addition to being respected in their competitive fields: recruitment of quali­ ty students, strictly monitored counseling ser­ vices, study halls and increased academic monitoring by the coaches. JCCC coaches work hand-in-hand with their team’s individ­ ual academic advisor in monitoring their stu­ dent-athlete’s academic progress. They also work with each student-athlete individually to help keep academics a priority and on track toward a degree. When it comes to academics, every measure is taken to ensure student-athletes are given the necessary support to reach their potential. “Our student-athletes frequently note that they chose Johnson County not only for its strong athletic traditions but for its outstanding academic repu­ tation,” said JCCC athletic director Carl Heinrich. “They realize the academic challenges that lie ahead, but understand the importance of strong academic prepara­ tion for their future careers.” • JCCC’s fastpitch softball team has been honored as National Academic Champions five times (1992, 1994, 2000, 2001, 2004). • Since 2000, JCCC has produced 98 NJCAA Academic All-Americans in all sports. Johnson County Community College led the nation in 2006 producing 16 NJCAA Acadmeic All-American. • In 2004-05 and 2005-06, nearly 60 percent of JCCC’s student-athletes maintained a grade point average of 3.0. Each student was recognized at the JCCC Academic Awards Night.

Ironhorse Golf Club The city of Leawood’s new public golf course, Ironhorse Golf Club, which opened to the public July 1, 1995, had been the main home of JCCC’s golf team since the 1996-97 season. However on Janury 1, 2007, the City of Leawood closed all facilities at the golf course in preparation for the com­ mencement of three major projects including: creek bank stabilization at numerous locations; a storm water management project; and the complete renovation of the all greens from California sand greens to USGA greens. The course had its “Grand Re-opening” July, 2008, and Ironhorse will be the Cavaliers home course again for the 2008-09 campaign. A par 72, this 18-hole championship layout covers 189 acres. The abundance and variety of trees lend a special sense of beauty to the course strategically covered with hickory, oak, sycamore, maple wal­ nut and ash trees. The golf course features bentgrass tees and greens, zoysia fairways and blue grass roughs. Ironhorse Golf Club also offers a unique practice facility second to none in the area. The learning center at Ironhorse includes a practice tee, short game center and practice course. The practice tee includes both grass and artificial hitting surfaces. A large pitching and chipping green coupled with a 13,000-square foot putting green comprise the short game center. The practice course is made up of three par 3 holes, each offering a challenge for players. Designed by Dr. Michael Hurdzan, one of the top golf course designers in North America, Ironhorse was awarded a slope rating of 140 from the championship tees, giving it the highest rating for a public course in the state of Kansas at the time of its opening. The championship design of Ironhorse offers five sets of tees with yardage ranging from 4,780 yards to 6,900 yards. The achievements over the past many years demonstrate the great potential of Ironhorse Golf Club. From its beginning in 1995, Golf Digest Magazine ranked Ironhorse the #1 Public Golf Course in the State of Kansas. After the 1996 season Golf Digest Magazine once again honored Ironhorse in their Best New Courses section as #3 in the category of “Best New Affordable Golf Course in the United States.” As the course matured, it has continued to rack up honors from local and national publications, and become a favorite among golfers.

Alvamar

Sycamore Ridge Golf Course Sycamore Ridge was the home for the JCCC golf team in 2007-08, and its fourth home course since the program was reinstated in the fall, 1991. Located in Spring Hill, Kan., Sycramore Ridge has been rated one of Kansas’ top 10 courses by Golf Digest the last three years, and the number one rated golf course in Kansas City by the Kansas City Star four years run­ ning. This par 72, design offers five sets of tees, accommodating all players ability levels. Bent grass tees, fairways and greens accompanied by zoysia collars create an ideal playing surface. Sycamore Ridge has an impressive layout. A links style front nine switches to a forested back nine crisscrossed by streams and punctuated with challenging elevations. The par 4 12th hole, Sycamore Ridge "Signature Hole", is all about options. From hitting a long iron, to three wood, or driver, this is definitely a risk and reward hole. The creek guards the entire right side of the hole. The 10th is a lengthy and narrow par 4 and is considered the toughest hole on the course. Narrow and sloping right to left, the key off the tee is to stay in play, avoid­ ing the trees on both sides and water in front on the green.

Alvamar Golf Club Alvamar Golf Club, host to the JCCC Designated in 2007 and to several confer­ ence and region championship tourna­ ments, is also utilized by JCCC’s golf tea for practice. The course characterized b large scale greens, tees and flowing fairways, very much in the spirit of the famous Robert Trent Jones. Alvamar also ranks among the tougher courses in the state. It’s long – 7,096 yards from the tips – narrow and the rough is thick. But with its high quality zoysia grass fairways and bent grass greens, and aesthetically pleasing design, the difficulty is overshad­ owed by the pleasure of the total golfing experience. Alvamar opened its first nines, Jayhawk and Quail Creek, in May, 1968. Alvamar is highly regarded throughout the state and is the home of the Kansas Open.
