Chris Bucknam Head Coach

Fayetteville, Arkansas

Fayetteville was named a Top 10 College Town in Livability.com’s fourth annual “Best College Towns in America.” Fayetteville was ranked no. 9, and three other college towns with universities in the Southeastern Conference were on the list: College Station, Texas (Texas A&M, no. 10), Columbia, Mo. (University of Missouri, no. 4), and Gainesville, Fla. (University of Florida, no. 3). Ranking factors included cost of living and pollution levels. The site boasted Fayetteville’s “college town vibe, artistic scene and progressive residents” as well as the Downtown Square, the Walton Arts Center and Skull Creek Trail.

One day in 1988, Joe Fennel, Randy Rhine and Kelly O’Meara, the Fayetteville High School cross-country coach, were out running. Kelly mentioned that his cross-country budget was $100.00. In the days before development programs, there wasn’t money for sports other than football and basketball. Joe and Randy were shocked and decided to do something about it. They created the Chile Pepper Running Club and from there, the Chile Pepper Run. It was originally held in May and consisted of the 10K open run only. The Chile Pepper Cross Country Festival was created in 1992 to bring together three northwest Arkansas cross-country races under a single event – the Chile Pepper Cross Country Festival, which is now one of the premier running events in America. The Festival united the Chile Pepper Run; the Arkansas Invitational, the annual Lady’Back and Razorback home meet; and the Fayetteville High School’s Purple Dog Invitational. Now the Chile Pepper hosts approximately 4,800 runners and over 5,000 spectators each year and is one of the largest cross country festivals in the nation.

Course

The Chile Pepper Cross Country Festival will held at the University of Arkansas cross country course in Fayetteville. The course is a combination of grass, cinder and uneven terrain.

Race Information

The 5K will begin at 7:20 AM after all Full, Half and Relay runners have crossed the Start Line. Start location is at 22nd & Grand, across from Crown Center.

Courst Description

This year, the 5K course will be very fast while also taking in a nice tour of downtown. This will be a tale of 2 parts as the first mile is down followed by a long, very gradual uphill. Then, everyone will get to enjoy a long gradual downhill and flat 2nd and 3rd miles. Compared to many of our area courses, this will be one of the fastest and definitely among the most scenic. It starts just north of Crown Center on Grand and heads north for over a mile to 11th Street, passing between the Sprint Center and KC Power & Light district. Turn right on 11th to Oak. *Be sure to pay attention to your turnoff since everyone else will turn left on 11th. The fun really begins as you’ll enjoy a nice long gradual downhill to 18th St passing by the Kansas City Star building along the way. On 18th you’ll head east for a pancake flat 1 kilometer out and back section while joining the final mile of the half marathon and marathon course by heading west and south to McGee, 20th and Grand. On Grand, you’ll have a just right three/tenths mile straightway that begins with a short climb over the bridge before a flat finish back to Crown Center. With just a few turns and long stretches of straight roads, it’ll be easy to settle into a good rhythm.

coaching staff

Mike Bloemker Head Coach • 16th Season • University of Central Missouri Mike Bloemker enters his 16th season as a member of the Johnson County Community College athletics staff. Widely regarded as one of the premier distance coaches in NJCAA track and field, Bloemker has enjoyed 15 tremendously successful years as head coach of the JCCC cross country programs, as well as his 15 years with the Johnson County track and field program, 10 as an assistant and four as head coach. Now the longest tenured head coach in the history of the cross country program, Bloemker has found tremendous success while at Johnson County, but his cross country track programs experienced a banner year in 2011-12 that rivals the success of any other team in JCCC history. The women swept the Region VI cross country, indoor and outdoor championships for the first time in the 27-year history of the program, and joined Barton and Cowley as the only programs to stake that claim. Additionally, both the women and men competed a conference triple crown, the sixth all-time for both programs. On the national stage last season, the Lady Cavaliers finished 12th nationally in cross country, fifth in half marathon, seventh indoors and tied the team’s best outdoor showing, placing fifth. The men finished fifth in cross country, runner-up in half marathon and 12th at both the indoor and outdoor championships. Equally impressive was the 46 All-America honors collected by JCCC athletes in cross country and indoor and outdoor track, including six by Ashley Reid, who also was selected the Female of the Meet at both the indoor and outdoor Region VI championships, and JCCC’s Female Athlete of the Year. Bloemker’s remarkable success did not go unnoticed. He was named the Coach of the Meet at both the indoor and outdoor championships, and later was selected the NJCAA Women’s Outdoor Coach of the Year by the NJCAA Track and Field Coaches Association. In his 15 seasons at JCCC, Bloemker has taken the Cavaliers to heights never before achieved in JCCC’s proud cross country history. There have been many memorable appearances by Cavalier teams at the NJCAA cross country meets, including a national champion by the women in 2000, and five runner-up finishes, three by the women and two by the men. In 2000, the combined finishes of the two programs earned them the Pepsi Cup Championship, and in 2002 they combined to win it a second time. Bloemker has won 19 of the 28 possible East Jayhawk Conference titles, captured six Region VI titles and finished runner-up nine times. Twenty-three of his 30 cross country teams have registered a top-10 national finish, including 11 top-five finishes. In half marathon national championships, Bloemker has won more national championships than any coach in the country, leading his women’s teams to half marathon national titles in 2003, 2005, 2006 and 2008. The other six championships his team has competed, JCCC has two second places, a fifthplace finish, two sixth place finishes and an eighth place finish. While his men’s teams have not won a title, they finished runner-up in 2004, 2005, 200, 2009, 2010 and 2011, and placed third in two championships.

2013 johnson county community college cross country guide


coaching staff Bloemker was named the NJCAA Region VI Men’s Cross Country Coach of the Year in 1999 and again in 2004. In 2000 Bloemker was selected the NJCAA and Coaches Association Coach of the Year after his teams were honored as National Champions for the best combined program in the country, finishing first and third. Under his watchful eye, Cavalier cross country and half marathon runners have earned 56 All-American citations, two individual national champions, three Region VI champions and 10 East Jayhawk Conference champions. Additionally, an individual from the JCCC women’s team has won eight of 14 individual conference titles, while a male JCCC competitor has been crowned champion three times over that span. In his five years overseeing the track and field program, Bloemker has directed individuals to 21 NJCAA AllAmerica performances, including three national champions, and 133 total NJCAA Coaches All-America certificates (67 indoor, 66 outdoor), as well as 98 conference event championships, 37 region event championships, 28 school record performances, 12 conference meet records and 17 stadium records. On the national level, Bloemker has led Johnson County to nine top-15 NJCAA finishes, including top 10 finishes by the Lady Cavaliers at indoor and outdoor nationals in 2012 and 2013. During his tenure as JCCC’s top assistant track and field coach, Bloemker played an integral part in a long 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. In his 10 seasons as assistant track coach, JCCC distance runners and relay teams have earned 54 NJCAA All-America honors, 221 Coaches All-American honors, won eight national championships, 26 individual Region VI titles, and 203 individual conference titles under his leadership. He also was selected the NJCAA Women’s Indoor Track and Field Assistant Coach of the Meet following the 2008 Championships. Over all in track in field while at JCCC, Bloemker has mentored 65 NJCAA All-Americans, 323 Coaches All-Americans, 55 individual Region VI titles and 279 individual conference champions. 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 runnerup, and the 4x800 raced to a third place finish. Overall, the Bloemker era has been filled with many outstanding individual highlights. In 2002, Lyudmila Anderson recorded a cross country hat trick, winning the conference, region and national titles. She set records for the top time in school history, the top time in a national championship and was the first runner to win a national title. Anderson followed by winning three individual titles at the 2003 NJCAA Indoor Championships, joining NJCAA and JCCC Hall of Famer Marti Cisper for the most national titles in a single meet. She was also named the Female Athlete of the Meet, a first in JCCC history.

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 1,000 meters 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 holders in cross country.

Did You Know?

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.

At least one Johnson County team has brought home a trophy from each of the nine NJCAA Half Marathon Championships (2003-Women 1st; 2004-Women 2nd, Men 2nd; 2005-Women 1st, Men 2nd; 2006-Women 1st, Men 2nd; 2007-Women-2nd; 2008-Women 1st; 2009-Men 2nd; 2010-Men 2nd, 2011-Men 2nd).

“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 first-place 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 finalist, 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 champion, who is the 2012 American champion in the 10,000 and competed in 2012 Summer Olympics; and Elle Pishny, a Kansas 6A state champion in the 3,200 meters, who qualified for the 2012 U.S. Olympic marathon trials. During his tenure at HealthPlus, Bloemker has coached seven high school girls who have run under 11:00 for 2 miles, and four boys under 9:20 for 2 miles. As running coordinator at HealthPlus, Bloemker’s main duties are to design and implement individualized off-season running programs. Bloemker earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education in 1995 from Central Missouri State University, and his master of education from the University of St. Mary in 2005. He working toward his Doctorate at Baker University. He is married to Dr. Katherine Bloemker. The couple resides in Shawnee, Kan., with their son, Griffin

A veteran at the national and international, NCAA, NJCAA, and high school levels for more than 20 years, Tom Lester returned to the collegiate coaching ranks last season after an 11-year stint as an assistant at Raytown South High School. He assists with cross country program and primarily works with JCCC sprinters, hurdlers and relay teams during the track and field campaign. In his first season, seven of the possible 12 JCCC women’s and men’s realy teams earned All-America honors at indoor and outdoor nationals, and 11 of the 12 earned All-East Jayhawk Conference honors, including five champinoship teams.. He also coached 13 individual conference performers, including six champions, nine all-region performers and five All-Americans in sprints and hurdles. Additionally, sprinter Mark Sitek and hurdler Marquel Nickens, qualified for the United States Junior National Championships last summer in Bloomington, Indiana. Last year, the men’s 4x400 and 4x800 indoor and 4x800 outdoor relay teams earned NJCAA Coaches All-American and the 4x8800 outdoor team set a new school record. Additionally, Sitek earned Coaches All-American in the 200-meter dash, while setting a new school mark in the event. He also coached 25 conference performers, including eight individual conference champions and seven region performers. In all, Lester has helped produce 40 All-Americans in relays and individual events, six conference champion relay teams, and nine other individual event champions. In addition to his 11 years at Raytown South (2001-11), Lester as served as head coach at Kansas City Kansas Community College (1991-93); assistant coach at Blinn Community College (1993-94) and head coach at Blinn (1994-95); and head coach at Lincoln University (1996-98). During his tenure, he has had individual success in track, coaching numerous Olympians, national collegiate champions and state high school champions. During Lester’s tenure at Raytown South, he was an integral member of the staff from 2001-2011, and he coached the boys and girls sprint teams to new heights never reached in the program’s history. His sprint corps scored more points at the Missouri Class 4 state championships than any other high school over the past six years. Over that span, Raytown South sprinters earned all-state honors in 40 different sprinting or relay events, and had 12 state champions (seven individual and five relay titles). Additionally, his sprinters set three state records. One of his most decorated athletes he worked with was Maurice Mitchell. Under Lester’s guidance, Mitchell won eight state titles and helped his team capture the first team state title in the program’s history. Mitchell won NCAA titles in the 200-meters and 400 relay for Florida State at the 2011 NCAA Championships, and was a semifinalist in the 200-

meters at the 2012 London Olympics. The same season the Raytown South boys won a state title, the girls team posted a runner-up finish in the team standings, also a best for the school. Lester also has 12 years experience coaching at the collegiate level. He began his coaching career at his alma mater, Northwest Missouri State University where he coached the sprinters and relays. After one season, Lester took over the program at Kansas City Kansas Community College, and in his first campaign, guided the Blue Devil men to a 10th place finish at the NJCAA Outdoor Championships in Odessa, Texas. His star pupil was Ernest Greene, the older brother to Olympic Gold medalist Maurice Greene. At the 1992 NJCAAs, Greene place fifth in the 100, ran a leg on the third place 400 relay and made school history when he won a national title in the 200-meters. His times of 10.24 in the 100 and 20.60 in the 200 earned him a spot in 1992 U.S. Olympic Trials, also a first in KCKCC history. At the trials, Greene lined up against one of the top sprinters of that time in Carl Lewis, and reached the semi finals. After two seasons, Lester left KCKCC in 1993 to take over as the top assistant for Steve Silvey at Blinn College, considered one of the premier community college track and field programs. In his first year at Blinn, Lester coached the throws and multi-events as well as assisting with the relays events. That season, Lester coached the NJCAA National Champion in the indoor shot put, outdoor discus and outdoor decathlon. In the fall of 1994, Silvey left for Arkansas, and Lester took over as head coach of the Blinn cross country and track programs. He began his tenure at Blinn by leading the men’s cross country program to a National Championship, defeating heavily favored South Plains for the title, completing the first leg of the Triple Crown. His track and field teams went on to win both the indoor and outdoor titles, making Lester the second NJCAA head coach in history to capture the Triple Crown. That season he coached James Beckford, whose 58-foot, 9.5-inch triple jump and 28-foot, 6.5 long jump in the NJCAA outdoor meet remains the best mark by a collegian. Beckford followed by winning a bronze medal for his native Jamaica at the World Track and Field Championships that summer and a silver medal in the long jump at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. However, the administration at Blinn dropped the program following the 1995 track season for Title IX compliance, ending one of the most storied programs in NJCAA history. Lester followed by serving two years at Lincoln University, which had been a highly successful NCAA Division II program earlier in the decade. Upon Lester’s arrival, the program began to produce some good athletes and had some success and following the 1997 season, the program was back on the map.

At the 1997 prestigious Drake Relays, Lincoln won four relay titles, one individual title and had two runner-up individual finishes. They also saw Lorraine Graham become the first Lincoln athlete to be named the Athlete of the Meet. She won three gold medals and helped set a meet record in the 4x400. She also won gold in the 4x200 and individual 400. The women’s program were dominant in the sprints and relay events at both the indoor and outdoor national championships. Lincoln athletes won three sprint titles indoors and five outdoors to help their teams claim third and fourth place national trophies. That summer at the 1997 World Track and Field Championship, Lester had to of his athletes medal, marking Lincoln University the only U.S. program to make that claim. Lester’s athletes have extended to the national and international arena. Prior to his arrival at Raytown South, Lester coached two-time Olympian Dinsdale Morgan from 1997-2000. Under Lester’s tutelage, Morgan had his best two seasons of his professional career. In 1997, he was a finalist at the World Championships and in 1998 was ranked fifth in the word by Track and Field News. A native of Kansas City, Mo., and a graduate of Raytown South, Lester was an outstanding collegiate runner at Northwest Missouri State University. He earned outdoor All-American honors as a member of the Bearcats 1984 4x400 relay. He also was a five-time MIAA champion, twice indoors in the 2-mile relay and three times outdoors in the 4x400 relay. He also helped set school records in indoor 4x400, outdoor 4x400 and distance medley relays. Today, his team’s indoor mark ranks third and both outdoor relays are still school records. He also ran the third fastest indoor time in the 600yard run in 1984. He currently ranks eighth in school history in that event. Lester earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at NWMSU. He has two daughters, Carlye and Tomye, who attend Olathe Northwest High School.

2012 Conference/Region

Review

In 2011, the JCCC women's cross country and track program captured its first Region triple crown, winning titles in cross country, indoor and outdoor track. In 2012, the cross country team cleared the first hurdle in a quest for a second triple crown by winning the Region VI Cross Country Championships, hosted by JCCC. The Lady Cavaliers edged Allen Community College by three points to claim first place. The JCCC men finished fourth overall. “We knew all year that this was basically a match race between us and Allen, but we expected to win,” JCCC head coach Mike Bloemker said. “Allen’s coach likes for his teams to run aggressively in championship meets. All week I told our team they needed to keep their composure and run as a team. Everything unfolded how I anticipated.” Three Lady Cavaliers finished among the top 15 finishers that earned them AllRegion VI honors. Jessica Thomas led the way placing sixth with a time of 19:38.1. Also in the top 15 were Emily DeLong at 10th place (19:51.8) and Michala Ruder at 14th (19:57.3). “Jessica had a really good day,” Bloemker said. “Emily, Michala and Abi had good days too, but this race was much closer than it should have been. Our home course curse almost got us again, but we have a really good team, and good teams win even if they are off a little bit. We should run really well at Nationals and the Half Marathon.”

(Above) The JCCC women’s team won its second sraight Region VI title in 2012. Jessica Thomas (No. 73) was JCCC’s top finsiher, placing sixth overall. (Below) Kidus Bekele was the men’s top finisher for JCCC, placing 15th Abi Hartzell and Liliana Lira nearly garnered all-region honors, placing 17th and 19th respectively. Hartzell finished the course in 20:05.7, and Lira came in shortly after in 20:14.1. Rounding out the Lady Cavaliers runners were Halie McCombs (27th-20:42.9) and Mackenzie Gorthy (57th-22:21.9). The JCCC men had just one runner earn AllRegion VI. Kidus Bekele crossed the finish line in 15th place with a time of 26:18.4. That effort ranks as the second fastest in team history for JCCC’s new 8k course. JCCC’s next four finishers placed with in five spots of each other. Sam Yoakum, Tyler Roberts and Kamp Richard Wiebe placed 29th (27:07.0), 30th (27:13.8), and 31st (27:17.8), and James Bowlin came in 33rd (27:22.0).

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 2013-14 competitive seasons for 10 men’s championships and 10 women’s title-attaining sports, KJCCC member institutions can boast of 123 NJCAA National Championships in 12 different men’s and women’s sports. 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. 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 100-meter 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.

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.

.

Former Cowley baseball standout and JUCO World Series MVP 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 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 backs Mike Rozier, who also was the Heisman Trophy winner in 1983 at the University of Nebraska, and Brandon Jacobs, who helped the Giants win two Super Bowls.

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.

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.

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. 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 educational 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 fulltime 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 classroom 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-theart 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

The college has more than 100 transfer agreements with regional colleges and universities, which assure admittance without loss of time or credit. More than 50 one- and two-year career and certificate programs prepare students to enter the job market in high-employment fields. It is even possible for students to attend classes on the JCCC campus and earn a bachelor’s degree from a four-year school through one of JCCC’s many partnerships with Kansas and Missouri colleges and universities. JCCC’s continuing education program is the largest, most comprehensive in the Kansas City area, offering workshops and seminars for business and industry, computer training, professional relicensure and recertification, and personal enrichment. The college’s Center for Business and Technology provides public seminars and contract training in management and supervisory skills and the latest training available in computer software applications and information technology. 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.

NATYCAA

Cup History The National Alliance of Two Year College Athletic Administrators (NATYCAA) sponsors the NATYCAA Cup which is awarded each year in recognition of overall performance at two-year colleges. The NATYCAA Cup program began in 2004 to highlight excellence in two-year athletics based on success in championship competition. The awards are given to the NJCAA member colleges based on performance at national championship events throughout the academic year. A first place finish warrants 20 points, second place 19 points, etc. In 2007-08, Johnson County Community College won the Scholarship Division, accumulating 142 points for their first every NATYCAA Cup trophy. The Cavaliers did not win a national title in any sport in 2007-08, but did finish second in Division II volleyball, third in Division I men’s indoor track and field, fifth in Division II women’s basketball, fifth in Division II softball, fifth in Division I men’s tennis, seventh in Division I men’s outdoor track and field, and seventh in women’s Division I cross country. Additionally, the baseball team qualified for its first NJCAA JUCO World Series, and tied for ninth overall. While this was JCCC’s first championship cup win, it is the program’s fourth straight top three finish. In 2005, JCCC finished runner-up, and followed in 2006 and 2007 with thirdplace trophies. JCCC has finished in the top 10 in all 10 years of the cup award. Iowa Central Community College captured its fifth straight NATYCAA Cup title finishing with 181 total points. Monroe Community College was second with 153. JCCC has finished in the top 10 all 10 years of the cup award, and among the top three five times, including a cup championship in 2007-08.

Jean Claude Cavalier Who is the biggest Johnson County Community College fan around? Cavalier mascot Jean Claude of course! Entertaining Cavalier fans of all ages, Jean Claude is quickly becoming an icon of the college. JC serves as a JCCC ambassador and makes appearances at many different school functions, but his heart lies with Johnson County’s athletic teams. Whether it’s cross country, soccer or volleyball in the fall, or over in the GYM building for basketball games in the winter to the tennis courts, softball and baseball fields in the spring, Jean Claude loves to root JCCC teams to victory. JCCC athletic teams have been the “Cavaliers” since 1983, when a student body vote changed the name from Kansans. JCCC’s recent rebranding efforts revealed that students were not familiar with the college’s mascot – those who knew it was the Cavalier often weren’t sure what a Cavalier was. Therefore, the college resolved to pay better attention to its mascot and make a concerted effort to ensure students knew not only what a Cavalier was, but that they themselves were Cavaliers. As a result, JCCC now has a living, breathing Cavalier on campus. The college’s Student Life and Leadership Development and Marketing Communications divisions purchased a Cavalier costume (in dark blue and gold, matching the college’s new official colors). Jean Claude was unveiled to students, faculty and staff on Friday, Sept. 28, at a special welcoming event in front of the Student Center. He has his own Twitter and Facebook pages, and he encourages all JCCC fans to follow him. Jean Claude is the creation of Maydwell Mascots Inc., in Toronto, Ontario, which has made hundreds of mascots for high schools, colleges, universities and businesses. The legend of the JCCC Cavalier and the sword How does an English soldier come to Kansas? Legend has it that a former history professor at JCCC owned a family heirloom – a sword that had once belonged to his ancestor, an English Cavalier, who had used it to defend his king in battle. Allegedly, years ago the professor lost the sword somewhere in the forested area on the college campus, and it hasn’t been seen since. There’s speculation that the ghost of the professor’s ancestor – the sword’s original owner – roams the woods searching for his missing blade. The Cavalier’s determined quest for his sword is reflected in the drive JCCC’s students and athletic teams show on the field, court and classroom.

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 JCCC Gymnasium has been host to numerous region, district and national championship events. In 1975, JCCC hosted the inaugural NJCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament. JCCC would be the host site until 1982. In 2004, JCCC hosted the women’s Division II Championship, and is scheduled to host again in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

The Barbara Gill Lifetime Fitness Center The Barbara Gill Lifetime Fitness Center provides an opportunity for individuals to exercise to improve overall muscle tone and cardiovascular conditioning. The center emphasizes the value of developing all areas of fitness. The fitness center is open for use by 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 of this facility is GYM 003, 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. Each end of the multifunctional space can accommodate three sets of retractable nets that create practice cages for batting and pitching for softball and baseball or driving golf balls. The Fieldhouse also serves as the host venue for the indoor heptathlon and pentathlon events of the NJCAA Region VI Track Championships.

this is jccc only had to contend with the rugged terrain of JCCC’s course, but also wind gusts of nearly 40 miles per hour. Despite the wind, JCCC head coach Dave Burgess said the championship was extremely successful. “We had many compliments on how well we ran the championship,” said former JCCC head coach Dave Burgess. “That’s a credit to our planning, to everyone that helped make this a first-class event and the races were outstanding. It was a great championship.” Danville Area Community College captured the women’s D-II title, returning to the top spot after a two-year absence. Flathead Valley’s Carrie Gross topped the field for the D-II women’s title. Ricks College was successful in their bid to repeat as the D-I women’s champion, however, Evette Turner of Barton County missed in her attempt to become the first female to win consecutive individual titles. Ricks’ Cara Ormond won the title. JCCC’s top finisher, freshman Alejandra Albors, placed 43rd. Two male runners from Kansas community colleges repeated as individual champions. Jerry Maritim of Cloud County became the first male to capture back-to-back Division II titles and fifth in NJCAA history. Barton County’s Julius Wanjiru won his second straight D-I title, becoming the sixth to win consecutive championships. However, Wanjiru was the first to do it with different schools. He competed for Meridian Community College his freshman campaign. The Cavaliers’ top finisher was freshman Drew Whitlock, who placed 33rd overall. Whitlock also placed among the top 25 American runners, earning Coaches Association All-American honors, JCCC’s 10th All-American. Lansing Community College edged two-time defending champion Danville Area for the men’s D-II title. Butler County just missed repeating as the men’s D-I champion, as South Plains edged them 43 to 46. In 1998, the stage was set; the only thing left was the performance. The JCCC men’s and women’s teams were ready to showcase their talents in front of the country on their home course, however, the script changed as each team’s respective race unfolded. Both teams turned in performances well below their expectations. The top finisher in the men’s division I race was Dodge City’s Eliud Njubi, as he crossed the finish line in 24:18, 15 seconds ahead of his teammate Likhaya Dayile. In fact, Dodge City placed five runners among the top 11 which helped them capture their first national cross country championship. The men’s D-II race was won by Brandon Leslie of Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute, as he became just the seventh individual to repeat as national champion. The D-II team title went to Lansing (Mich.) Community College. JCCC’s top finisher was freshman Jeremy Wilson of Americas, Kan. Wilson finished the course in 27:57 which placed him 49th overall, tying the 17th best individual national finish in JCCC history. His time also ranks 18th all-time in a national championship. Ricks College (Idaho) sophomore Alycia Boyer, a fourth-place finisher in 1997, won the Division I championship, which helped her school capture the team title as well. Colleen Burke of Phoenix College denied Paradise Valley’s Amber Dastrup’s bid to repeat as national champion, winning the Division II individual title. While Dastrup didn’t win the race, she did help her school capture the D-II team championship. For the the JCCC women harriers, freshman Clare Goldsborough led the team with a 47th place individual finish in time of 21:14.03 Located on the JCCC campus, the Cavaliers’ cross country course serves as a firstclass training and competition facility for the harriers. The Cavaliers compete on a scenic trail that winds through the wooded terrain on the southwest side of campus, covering a distance of five miles.

(Top) Dodge City’s Eliud Njubi had a tougher time with the mud and water than he did with the competitors at the 1998 NJCAA National Cross Country Championships, hosted by JCCC. Njubi won the race to lead Dodge City to the 1998 national team title. (Bottom) Alycia Boyer of Ricks College became the school’s third individual to win a national cross country championship. She is the second to win that title at JCCC. The first was Cara Ormond in 1996. Boyer’s performance helped her team capture the team championship as well.
