The team’s capped the season with top finishes at the half marathon. The women raced to a second-place finish, while the men came in third overall. The season was highlighted by the performance of Christa Heideman, who etched her name among the all-time great performers in JCCC history, by earning her 10th and 11th All-America honor of her career, which tied as the most decorated athlete in school history Marti Cisper and Amy Gochnour. Heideman would later add two more All-American honors during the track season, making her number one all-time. In 2006, Bloemker led both teams to top-10 national finishes in cross country. The Lady Cavaliers finished runner-up to South Plains at the cross country championship, but came away national champions at the NJCAA Half Marathon Championship, capturing their third national championship. The men finished 10th overall in cross country, but posted their third straight runner-up finish in half marathon.

coaching staff records for the top time in school history, and the top time in a national championship. She also was the first individual to win a national championship in cross country. In 2001, the men’s team won the conference crown and had five individuals place among the top 10 finishers. At nationals, the Cavaliers registered a fourth-place finish. The Lady Cavaliers also won the conference crown and had five top 10 finishers, including the individual champion Kim Oldaker. She went on to earn AllAmerican, leading JCCC to a fifth-place national finish. In 2000, the men defended its conference and region titles, raced to its second straight top-three finish, placing third, as two individuals were honored as AllAmerican performers. The 2000 JCCC women harriers made history, racing to its first ever national championship, as four individuals placed in the top 15, all earning All-American honors. That proved to be enough to edge Colby Community College and Schoolcraft College for the NJCAA D-II National Championship. It was also sweet revenge for JCCC. Just a week earlier, Colby edged Johnson County to win the Region VI D-II title. “We actually went to the awards ceremony thinking we finished second,” Bloemker said. “When we heard we won, it was overwhelming. I really think the girls thought they could win, but for it to materialize is amazing. This is the most exciting thing I’ve been around.”

In 1999, the men followed their conference championship by winning the Region VI title, and Bloemker was named the Region VI men’s coach of the year. At nationals competing in their first Division II Championship, the men nearly made a clean sweep of their championships, placing second nationally. The women finished a very respectable seventh. In his first season, Bloemker led both teams to conference titles. The women went on to post a 10th-place national finish, while the men finished 11th. The spring of 2009 JCCC ushered in a new era in track and field as Bloemker took over the reigns of the program. In his first campaign, he led both programs to top 20 finishes outdoors. On the men’s side, Bloemker had 38 all-conference, 15 All-Region VI and five All-America performers during the indoor and outdoor seasons. He also had four individual conference and one region champion. The women accounted for 35 all-conference, 12 allregion and 10 All-America performances. Bloemker’s athletes also produced two school records, two stadium records, and six top five peformances in team history. During his tenure as JCCC’s top assistant track and field coach, Bloemker played an integral part in along list of track team accomplishments. JCCC won seven top-five NJCAA team trophies at national competitions; led 21 indoor and outdoor track teams to top-10 national finishes; captured the East Jayhawk Conference crown 22 times and the men and women have each won four conference triple crowns under his tenure. On the track, JCCC distance runners and relay teams have earned 278 All-American honors, won eight national championships, 26 individual Region VI titles, and 203 individual conference titles under his leadership. In 2003 at the NJCAA Indoor Championships under Bloemker’s tutelage, Lyudmila Anderson completed one the greatest performances in history, winning three events and was named the Women’s Track Athlete of the Meet. In addition, Amy Gochnour registered a second, third and fourth place finish in those three events. At the 2005 NJCAA Indoor Championships, Bloemker coached 15 All-America athletes, including a national champion 4x800 relay and runner-up distance medley relay. In 2007, he had athletes earn 42 AllAmerica certificates, including Christa Heideman who garnered seven during the indoor and outdoor season. In 2008, Bloemker’s athletes garnered 26 All-America honors, 18 at the indoor championships, and he was awarded the NJCAA Women’s Indoor Assistant Coach of the Meet. Under his watchful eye, former JCCC great Lyudmila Anderson won three individual national titles at the NJCAA Indoor Championships in 2003, joining former NJCAA and JCCC Hall of Famer Marti Cisper for the most national titles in a single meet. Anderson was named the Female Athlete of the Meet, the first in JCCC history. Prior to the indoor season, Anderson completed a trifecta in cross country, winning individual titles in the conference, region and NJCAA in 2002. Outdoors, Anderson added a runner-up finish in the 10,000-meters and a third-place effort in the 5,000-meters.

coaching staff Bloemker also fostered the career of two of the most decorated athletes in Johnson County history, Amy Gochnour and Christa Heideman. Gochnour garnered 11 All-America honors during her two years under Bloemker, which included an individual half marathon individual title, five runner-up finishes in individual events and all 11 of her All-America efforts had finishes in the top five. Following the 2008 indoor season, Heideman became the most decorated athlete all-time at JCCC with 13 All-America citations. While she did not win a national title, she did place in the top six eight times. This duo also shines brightly among the all-time performances in JCCC history. Gochnour ranks in the top five in three indoor events, and in four events outdoors. Heideman owns the indoor school record for the 1,000meters and distance medley relay and owns two of the top five marks in the mile run. Outdoors, Heideman holds the record in the 1,500-meters, and ranks in the top five in two other events. Both are record holder in cross country. Gochnour owns the best 3k race performance and half marathon time, while Heideman has the best 4k and 5k times. She set the 5k record at nationals in 2007. On the men’s side, James Tong finished his career as a sixtime All-American while setting the indoor school records in the 1,000-meters and as a member of the distance medley relay team. Outdoors, Tong owns the 800-meter and 1,500-meter records. Johnson County’s men’s and women’s relays teams have proven to a formidable force throughout Bloemker’s career. In 2005, Bloemker put together a national champion women’s indoor 4x800 relay, just the second in school history, and at the 2007 indoor championships, his distance medley team finished runner-up, and the 4x800 raced to a third place finish. Bloemker favors a philosophy of dedication, commitment, consistency and a desire to compete. He believes that without that, athletes will never reach their potential. He also looks for athletes who are willing to work hard day-in and day-out. “I expect a lot out of people,” Bloemker said. “They don’t have to be the most talented, but if they work hard and are committed to what I tell them, they will go a long way.” When Bloemker was hired to succeed NJCAA Hall of Fame coach Dave Burgess, he was not a stranger to coaching at the collegiate level nor to the hard work it takes to build a first-rate program. In the fall of 1996, Bloemker began a cross country program from scratch at Longview Community College in Lee’s Summit, Mo. A year later, he led his team to two firstplace meet finishes and to a 13th-place finish at the NJCAA Division II National Championship. Bloemker might best be noted for his work at HealthPlus. From 1989 to 1995, he served as assistant running coordinator under the late Tom Dowling, who was a former Olympic Development coach and one of Kansas City’s most successful running coaches. In 1995, he was promoted to running coordinator. During his tenure at HealthPlus, Bloemker was instrumental in helping numerous high school athletes qualify for and win state titles. Among those athletes are former JCCC harriers Nick Luft and Vince Kane. Bloemker also played a key role in the development of Amanda Pape, a Footlocker finalists, four-time state champion and Junior Pan American Game qualifier; Stephan Pro, a three-time state champion who ran a 9:09 two-mile at the state meet; Amy Hastings, a three-time Kansas 6A state champing, who ran a personal best of 17:16 for 5,000meters, and 10:33 for 3,200meters; and Elle Pishny, a Kansas 6A state champion in the 3,200meters. During his tenure at HealthPlus, Bloemker has coaches seven high school girls who have run under 11:00 for two miles, and four boys under 9:20 for two miles. As running coordinator at HealthPlus, Bloemker’s main duties are to design and implement individualized offseason running programs. He left HealthPlus in 2003 to focus specifally on his duties at JCCC. Bloemker earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education in 1995 from Central Missouri State University, and his master’s of education from the University of St. Mary in 2005. Bloemker, his wife Katherine, and new born son Griffin, reside in Shawnee, Kan.

2008 women’s season review JCCC adds another amazing chapter to cross country history The 2008 JCCC women’s cross country season will rank with the best in team history. JCCC participated in nine scoring events on the season and came away winners seven times. The Lady Cavaliers won the Maple Leaf Invitational, Cavalier Cup, Tabor Invitational, JCCC Short Course Invitational, Emporia State Invitational, the East Jayhawk Conference Championship and the NJCAA Half Marathon Championship. The other events, JCCC placed second at Region VI and sixth at the NJCAA Cross Country Championship. The Half Marathon win gave JCCC and head coach Mike Bloemker its fourth National Half Marathon Championship, and fifth overall national title. Leading the way were sophomores Temer Yimer, Francis Gipson and Sarah Stark. Yimer won two events, had eight top five finishes on the year. One of her wins was the East Jayhawk Conference Championship, becoming the 13th JCCC runner to win that title, but the first since 2005. She also earned All-Region VI by placing second, NJCAA and Coaches Cross Country All-American by placing 13th and NJCAA Half Marathon All-American by placing third. At cross country nationals, Yimer finished the 5k race in 18:48. That time ranks as the sixth fastest by a JCCC runner in a national competition.

Stark

Gipson had four top five finishes and seven top 10 places during the course of the year. She also earned All-East Jayhawk and All-Region VI, placing third and sixth respectively. She capped her sophomore season by earning Coaches All-American at the NJCAA Cross Country Championship and NJCAA All-American at the Half Marathon Championship, finishing 16th and fourth respectively. At the cross country championship, Gipson finished just one spot from earning NJCAA All-American. She finished the course in 19:08, which ties the 12th fastest time in JCCC championship history. Stark raced to victory once, had six top five and seven top 10 finishes. Her win came on JCCC’s home course at the Cavalier Cup. Stark also finished runner-up in the East Jayhawk Conference Championship, and placed third in the Region VI Championship. She capped the cross country season by placing 25th overall at cross country nationals with a time of 19:24. That effort ranks as the 13th best time by a JCCC runner at nationals and earned her Coaches All-American

Temer Yimer

Snow

Another key performer for JCCC last fall was freshman Haley Snow. She earned All-East Jayhawk Conference by placing seventh overall at the conference championship. However, her 13th place finish at the Half Marathon Championship proved to be the key finish for JCCC. Her effort assured JCCC the National Championship.

At cross country nationals, Rose was the Cavaliers top finisher, placing 64th overall in the 253 person field. He capped the year by placing 17th at the NJCAA Half Marathon Championships.

Mount San Antonio College Invitational Presented by Friday, October 16, 2009, at Walnut, Calif. Mt. SAC Cross Country Course • Women 5k, Men 8k

Mt. San Antonio at a Glance

Doug Todd Head Women’s Coach

History of the Mt.SAC Invitational With 62 years of history, the Mt. SAC Cross Country Course is one of the oldest and most famed courses in the world, challenging generations of runners against each other. The Mt. SAC Cross Country Invitational has become our nation's largest cross country invitational. Last year a record 25,000+ participants competed over our famed 3 mile cross country course. The names "Valley Loop", "Switchbacks", "Poop Out Hill" and "Reservoir Hill" have become part of cross country legend and lingo. The course has changed little over the last 62 years, making it one of the few courses where different generations can compare times.

West Division

One of the NJCAA’s most prolific conferences, the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference is dedicated to achieving the highest goals in the integration of academic and athletic endeavors. Individually, member schools have long been respected for successes both in its classrooms and its stadiums.

East Division

In all, the KJCCC is home to more than 3,000 student-athletes on 244 teams in the 22 men’s and women’s KJCCC-sponsored sports. The men’s programs regulated by the conference include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, indoor/outdoor track and field, rodeo, soccer, tennis and wrestling. The KJCCC-regulated women’s programs include basketball, cross country, dance, golf, indoor/outdoor track and field, rodeo, soccer, softball, tennis and volleyball. Entering the 2009-10 competitive seasons for 10 men’s championships and 10 women’s title-attaining sports, KJCCC member institutions can boast of 113 NJCAA National Championships in 12 different men’s and women’s sports. However, the success of the conference from 1990 through the spring of 2009 is unprecedented. Of the 113 national titles, 79 have come during that span, 38 during the 1990s and another 41 in the first nine years of the new millennium. In addition, 16 of its 19 members have won at least one national championship, and 13 have won two or more. The KJCCC has produced more than 4,000 NJCAA All-Americans and a number of athletes have continued to excel on the NAIA, NCAA, Olympic and professional 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. Four years later in 2008, Campbell again took gold in the 200-meters, and former Barton County track stars Aaron Armstrong and Leevan Sands also earned Olympic hardware. Armstrong earned silver for Trinidad & Tobago in the men’s 4x100 relay and Sands took the bronze in the triple jump. For team USA, former Cougar Hyleas Fountain finished with a Bronze medal in the women’s heptathlon and former Pratt baseball standout Terry Tiffee helped USA to a Bronze medal.

West Jayhawk: Barton County, Butler, Cloud County, Colbby, Dodge City, Garden City, Hutchinson, Pratt and Seward County East Jayhawk: Allen County, Coffeyville, Cowley, Fort Scott, Highland, Independence, Johnson County, Kansas City Kansas, Labette and Neosho County.

Another former Barton County track athlete, Tyson Gay, is considered one of the more decorated former NJCAA track and field athletes. In 2008 at the U.S. Olympic Trials, Gay set an American record in the 100meters. He was clocked in a time of 9.77, which was the third-fastest time ever in the event. A day later he posted a wind-aided 9.68 which is the fastest ever 100meter time under any conditions -even faster than the official 9.69 mark set by Jamaica’s Usain Bolt at the Olympics in Beijing. In 2007, Gay became just the third athlete in history to claim both the 100-meter and 200-meter world titles. He also anchored the USA 4x100 relay that won gold. For his efforts in 2007, Gay was selected as the 2007 IAAF Male World Athlete of the Year and the 2007 Men’s Athlete of the Year by Track and Field News. 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 service, 2,419 hits and 283 home runs at the Major League level. The Jayhawk Conference has also made an impact in

58

the NFL, with over 200 former players having played for all 32 teams in the league. Among that group include former Garden City running back Corey Dillon and former 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. Former Jayhawk Conference basketball players have also had an impact on professional basketball.. In 1999, former Barton County center Alek Radojevic made history when he was selected 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 successful 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 athletics. 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 adopted.

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. Seven individuals have held the title of commissioner. Bryce Roderick, the current commissioner, is serving his fifth year at the helm. Roderick began his service as commissioner in July of 2003, succeeding Bennie Lee. He served one year as his assistant before taking the helm. Roderick began his service to community colleges in 1973 when he was selected to the Garden City Community College Board of Trustees. He was elected to four terms and served 16 years. In July of 1989, he was hired as the Director of Recreational Sports and Coordinator of Facilities at GCCC, and served as Assistant Athletic Director until 2002. Roderick began his service to the NJCAA as Assistant Region VI Women’s Director in 1995 and became Region VI Director in 1996. He has served on the NJCAA Executive Committee and the Board of Directors of USA Track and Field. He is also co-chair of the NJCAA Half Marathon, Cross Country and Track and Field Committees and serves on the NJCAA Volleyball and Softball Committees. In April 2007 at the NJCAA annual meeting, Roderick was awarded the George E. Killian Award of Excellence. This award is given to individuals dedicated to the ideals of volunteerism, achievement, service, leadership and excellence. Roderick is only the second women’s director to receive this prestigious award.

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 organization. The initial activity sponsored by the NJCAA was track and field. The NJCAA was fast gaining national recognition, and in 1949, the NJCAA reorganized 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 membership consists of over 500 institutions and 45,000 student-athletes.

JCCC in Rolling Stone In the October 15 1998 issue of Rolling Stone magazine, 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 educational excellence over the years.

Learning comes first at JCCC.

Athletic Director 10th Season at JCCC University of Kansas

The leader behind one of the nation’s more successful athletics programs, Carl Heinrich begins his 10th season as athletics director at Johnson County Community College. Heinrich has guided JCCC through some of the school’s most dynamic times since assuming the position as JCCC’s fourth athletics director in the fall of 2000. Heinrich has been associated with Johnson County, either as a coach or administrator since the fall of 1991. He oversees a 41-year-old department that now fields 18 varsity sports, and continues to lead the Johnson County Community College athletics program in a positive direction. The hallmark of Heinrich’s time as the JCCC’s athletics director has been the overall excellence of his entire program, with every Cavaliers’ sport achieving a new pinnacle. During his tenure at Johnson County Community College, the Cavaliers have claimed eight of the school’s 10 NJCAA National Championships, 46 NJCAA Region VI titles and 46 Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference Eastern Division titles. Additionally under Heinrich’s guidance, a total of 110 teams have earned NJCAA National Tournament berths, with 42 finishing among the top-five nationally. Some of the other highlights of JCCC’s athletics success in Heinrich’s nine years at the helm include 400 athletes earning NJCAA All-America accolades, and a majority of the 18 sports programs being ranked in the National Top 20 each year. In 2004-05, 15 of JCCC’s 18 sports appeared in the national rankings. A year earlier, 16 of 18 were ranked nationally. In 2005-06, 2006-07 and 2007-08, 17 of the Cavaliers 18 sports appeared in national rankings. Last year 13 of the 18 teams appeared in the national rankings. With all of JCCC’s Athletics’ storied history in mind, one would be hard-

112

pressed to find a more successful year at Johnson County than in 2004-05. The JCCC athletics department finished second behind Mesa Community College in the final NATYCAA (National Alliance of Two Year College Athletic Administrators) Cup standings, the national all-sports competition that recognizes all NJCAA Champion ship sports for both men’s and women’s athletics and ranks the top overall athletics programs in the country. The second-place showing marked JCCC’s top finish in the history of the award, topping its sixthplace showing in its inaugural year. In 2005-06, the third year of the competition, JCCC finished third in the standings, and the following year, JCCC added another third-place trophy to its collection. However the 2007-08 season was the pinnacle, as JCCC was crowned the NATYCAA Cup champions, accumulating 142 points for their first every cup championship. JCCC had seven teams finish in the top five nationally in 2007-08, and four others finish in the top 10. JCCC athletes garnered 57 All-America honors, 76 AllRegion selections and 129 earned All-Jayhawk Conference accolades. Additionally, Heinrich was named as the Astro Turf Athletics Director of the Year at the National Association of Collegiate Directors of America (NACDA) convention in June, 2008. He was the Central District winner at the Junior College/ Community College level. The foundation for success began immediately, as all 16 sports reached the postseason, with 13 making their respective NJCAA championship in his first season at the helm. That trend continued in his second year, as all 16 again qualified for postseason, with 12 teams reaching NJCAA championship play. In 2002-03, all 16 teams qualified for postseason play, and 10 teams competed for a national title. In 200304 JCCC added men’s and women’s 1/2 marathon, upping the depart-

In 2000-01, JCCC’s intercollegiate won-loss record was 314-122-1, a superb .720 overall winning effort. Included in that total was a stunning 125-44-1 record compiled by JCCC’s women’s intercollegiate teams. The 2001-02 campaign nearly mirrored that success, as JCCC’s teams registered a won-loss record of 331-115-3, a winning percentage of .740. In 2002-03, JCCC athletics registered a .683 winning percentage posting a won-loss mark of 296-1372. In 2003-04, the men’s and women’s teams combined for a .669 winning percentage with a 275-136 record. Three years ago the teams combined for a mark of 300-114 for a .725 percentage. Two years ago JCCC teams combined for a 286151-1 record, a winning .653. In

2006-07, JCCC posted a winning percentage of .741 with a combined mark of 644-218-9., and in 2007-08 JCCC teams were 641-233-11, good for a .731 winning percentage. Last year JCCC teams combinted for a .680 percentate with a 606-284-9 mark. Along with the unprecedented onthe-field successes, JCCC also reached new heights in the classroom. During the past nine years, Johnson County student-athletes have earned 100 NJCAA Academic All-America accolades, including 15 in 2002-03 and 11 in 2003-04. In the 2005-06 season, JCCC led the country with 16 individual earning Academic All-America status, and in 2006-07 and 2008-09 JCCC was again among the national leaders with 13 individual Academic AllAmericans each year. Also, nearly 50 percent of the student-athletes at JCCC maintained a grade point average of 3.0 or better. The 200001 and 2003-04 academic year would bring national academic championships to the softball program. In 2002-03, eight of JCCC’s 16 sports registered a team grade

jccc athletic facilities

JCCC Gym Building The JCCC Gym Building, which seats 3,500, is the practice and competitive facility for the Cavalier volleyball team as well as the competitive facility for the men’s and women’s basketball teams. Completed in 1972, the facility serves not only athletes but also students and faculty members as a multiuse recreation facility. The main area contains three full basketball and volleyball courts. The building also houses the offices for the men’s and women’s athletic departments and the college’s physical education department.

The Barbara Gill Lifetime Fitness Center The Barbara Gill Lifetime Fitness Center provides an opportunity for individuals to exercise to help develop overall muscle tone and cardiovascular conditioning. The center emphasizes the value of developing all areas of fitness. The fitness center is open for use for students enrolled in Lifetime Fitness and JCCC employees who have completed an assessment. Each professional member of the staff has studied at the master’s level in physical education or related fields.

The Fieldhouse or Big Space The most striking feature in the addition is room 003 GYM, commonly referred to a “the big space.” The name is apropos for a 43,000-square-foot area, equivalent in size to three basketball courts, which can accommodate up to eight classes simultaneously. The floor has a 7-millimeter rubber mat topped with 2-millimeters of polyurethane. Its size is so immense that upkeep requires two riding machines - a sweeper and scrubber, each the size of a small street cleaner. A 200-meter track with six lanes, three for walking and three for running, circles a central, multifunctional area. The multifunctional area can be configured for basketball, volleyball, badminton and tennis courts using retractable partitions.
