+ Coaching Staff Shaun Wiseman Head Coach Shaun Wiseman begins his fifth season as Head Men’s and Women’s Tennis Coach. Wiseman, a native of Rogers, Ark., has proven to be among the top young collegiate tennis coaches in the region. Wiseman has quickly established a strong athletic and academic tradition at Ozarks as he continues to emphasize the development of a well-rounded student-athete. Under Wiseman, both programs vastly improved in his first year, with the men’s team nearly qualifying for the playoffs. Wiseman had one player earn ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America honors, a program first, and had a combined six players named to the American Southwest Conference All-Academic Team. Additionally, two of his women’s players earned All-Conference honors his first year. Wiseman followed that season by again having another player earn ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America honors to go along with two more women’s players earning All-Conference. Wiseman continued to build both

Wiseman’s Career Notables • Coached three Academic All-America players • Has had a combined 23 players earn ASC All-Academic Team honors • Led men’s team to its first 10-win season in more than a decade • Had Conference Freshman of the Year • Four men’s players received All-Conference in 2012 • Women’s team finished one spot away from qualifying for post-season in back-to-back years • Member of the United States Professional Tennis Registry • Serves as Ozarks’ senior compliance officer • Works as an admissions counselor • Staff representative for the StudentAthlete Advisory Committee

programs, and in 2012, he led the men’s program to its first ten-win season in more than a decade. Again, the Eagles just missed qualifying for the playoffs. On the men’s side, Wiseman had the conference Freshman of the year and four AllConference players. It was a banner year academically, too, in 2012 as both the women’s and men’s programs earned the ITA Team Academic Award. Prior to Ozarks, he was the assistant women’s coach at NCAA Division II Arkansas Tech University from 2005-2007 where he helped with all aspects of the Golden Suns Tennis program. Wiseman assisted with the development of the junior tennis program in the River Valley community. He graduated from Arkansas Tech University in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in vocal music. He earned his master’s degree from ATU in college student personnel and is currently pursuing his PhD in Athletic Administration from Northcentral University.

2013 Women’s Season Preview + Veteran Group To Lead Lady Eagles Head Women’s Tennis Coach Shaun Wiseman is happy to have a veteran group return for the 2013 season, and with that experience comes increased expectations. Two seniors, three juniors and two sophomores give Wiseman the luxury of an experienced team in the competitive American Southwest Conference. Chelsea Glasscock and Tara Richards return for their senior seasons and have been with the program for all four years. Whitney Lewis, Kalli Simpson and Macie Kelley are back for their junior seasons. Megan Wallace and transfer Mollie Grace Wilkinson make up the sophomore class, while talented freshman Elly Eibes comes in with high expectations. “This is about as good as it gets as far as experience,” said Wiseman. “They play well together and it is a close group. We are not flashy but rather very blue-collar. They are hard working and consistent, and that is very important. We fight in each match and you have to take it from us. We don’t give it to you.” The Lady Eagles got off to a slow start last season, but came together and positioned themselves for a better 2013. Ozarks finished 4-10 overall and won the final two matches of the season. “Our team got better as the season went

Chelsea Glasscock Glasscock and Richards have both been AllConference performers during their careers. Glasscock posted a 6-5 singles record and teamed with Richards to pick up four doubles wins. Richards went a solid 3-3 against conference opponents in singles play. “Our two seniors have meant so much to our program,” said Wiseman. “They have been the foundation of the program. I have

on,” said Wiseman. “They had to circle the wagons when our season could have been derailed. That has made them so much better and ready for this season. Our expectations are to qualify for the conference tournament. I feel like this team is probably as ready as any team I’ve had in the last three years. They have the talent and experience to get there.”

enjoyed seeing them both grow. The junior class has been a good supporting group. They keep us focused. They have been the glue to keep the program together.” Lewis posted four wins at No. 1 singles. Kelley tied for the team-lead in singles wins (6). Simpson had three wins in both singles and doubles. “It might be a little too early to tell who is No. 1,” said Wiseman. “Whitney has been a leader on the court. She has as good a work ethic as any female athlete that I have been around during my time at Ozarks. She practices harder and longer than anyone. It will depend how Elly handles the spotlight. She has some growing to do and still needs more experience. But she has the raw ability to be a dominant No. 1 in our conference. It will just come down to whether she will be patient enough to get there.” Wallace and Wilkinson give the team even more experience. “Mollie Grace moves forward well and has great hands,” said Wiseman. “And when she is confident she is as good as anyone on the team. Megan has developed into a solid player. She works hard and doesn’t get discouraged. She refuses to quit.”

+ 2013 Men’s Season Preview Expectations At An All-Time High For Men’s Tennis Program Expectations are at an all-time high for Shaun Wiseman’s men’s tennis team following a record-breaking 2012 season. The Eagles have their sights set high after more than doubling their wins from the previous season. The 2012 team posted its first winning record in nearly a decade, ending with a 10-5 overall mark. Spurred by the momentum of last season, the Eagles appear primed to again challenge for a playoff spot. “I think they have the potential to go a lot further than last year,” said Wiseman. “There is no substitute for experience and these guys now have a year of conference play under their belt. We can take what we accomplished last year and put that as a baseline to where the program can be every year.” Wiseman has his top six players back, including four All-Conference players. Wiseman’s men’s team is the first to have four players named All-Conference during Ozarks’ NCAA III run. Sophomore Todd Turner returns as the No. 1 singles player after posting a 9-5 mark. Turner made Honorable Mention AllConference in doubles. No. 2 singles player Bishop Bass is back after earning ASC Freshman of the Year and Second Team All-Conference honors. He went 12-3 in singles and teamed with Turner to go 11-4 in doubles.

Todd Turner “Scott is a team leader,” said Wiseman. “He has developed a lot since his freshman season. He is stronger mentally and now has the ability to put away close matches. Michael wins more matches with his mind and mental fortitude than most. He is creative and smart on the court. He is a multidimensional player and that is how he wins his matches.” Sophomores Corey Dillard and Greg Knaggs round out the top six in singles for Ozarks. Dillard posted nine wins in singles while Knaggs had seven singles wins. “Corey arguably had as good a season as Todd and Bishop,” said Wiseman. “He fights harder than most of his opponents. It is al-

“Todd is expected to be the No. 1 singles player again,” said Wiseman. “Last year he had to dig deep against players that normally would defeat us. His play turned a lot of heads. He is a coach’s dream because he is talented, low maintenance and leads by example. Bishop is equally as talented and has set a high standard for the program. He now has a target on his back. He is capable of playing great tennis.” Juniors Scott Eibes and Michael Skimbo garnered Honorable Mention All-Conference in doubles. Eibes also made the AllConference list as a singles player. Eibes went 9-5 at No. 5 singles, while teaming with Skimbo to go 6-4 in doubles.

ways him against the world and that is what fuels him. Greg is a physical specimen. He is big, strong and fast. He possesses a monster serve.” Despite a breakout season, the Eagles came up short in qualifying for the playoffs. And that motivation has been a driving force during fall play. “The first day of practice was to the point where I thought we would have a fight because of the intensity,” said Wiseman. “These guys are more driven as a result of not going to the playoffs. We don’t just want to be a team that wins a lot of matches, we want to win quality matches and win the big matches.” Qualifying for postseason play is always difficult in the competitive American Southwest Conference, which has as many as three teams in the NCAA Division III’s top-40. Ozarks posted a 3-3 conference record, one spot away from making the post-season last year. “We now know what it takes to win the big matches,” said Wiseman. “The guys are not afraid of having a goal of trying to defeat the top teams in the division, and that is important. Last year we didn’t know how because we were not accustomed to winning. But now the culture is to win. The guys talk about winning the entire conference tournament and receiving the bid to the national tournament. I believe the talent is on campus to do that, but it will take a herculean effort. They must put in the hard work to accomplish that goal.”

ASC Honors Four For Academics Four men’s tennis players were named to the 2011-12 winter/spring American Southwest Conference All-Academic Team. To be eligible for ASC All-Academic honors, student-athletes must have lettered during the 2011-12 season, be in at least their second academic year at their institution, and carry a career gradepoint average of 3.00 or better. The team included Jeff Adams, a sophomore accounting major from Houston, Texas; Matt Arant, a senior history/literature/ sociology major from Georgetown, Texas; Tanner Holman, a senior English & radio/ tv/video major from Mesquite, Texas; and Michael Skimbo, a sophomore physical education major from Claremore, Okla. Bass Named Player of the Week University of the Ozarks freshman Bishop Bass was named the American Southwest Conference East Division Men’s Tennis Player of the Week in February. Bass, a native of Greenwood, Ark., won at No. 1 singles and doubles to fuel team wins over state rival Hendrix College and John Brown University in the Hendrix College Invitational. Bass, who dropped just one game in the singles action, teamed with Todd Turner for two wins in doubles play.

Eagles Earn ITA Academic Awards The men’s tennis team earned the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Team Academic Award for the 2011-2012 academic year. Ozarks was among a handful of NCAA III schools across the country to earn academic distinction for both men’s and women’s teams. The ITA All-Academic Team award is open to any ITA program that has a team grade point average of at least 3.20 for the 2011-2012 academic year. Ozarks was the only American Southwest Conference program to earn the award for its men’s and women’s teams. The men’s program posted a 3.20 team grade point average and was the only ASC school on the list. Additionally, four studentathletes earned individual accolades from the ITA. Matt Arant, Bishop Bass, Tanner Holman and Todd Turner earned ITA Scholar-Athlete honors. In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status, a player must be a letterwinner, maintain a grade point average of at least 3.50 (on a 4.00 scale) and have been enrolled at their present school at least two semesters.

The American Southwest Conference, one of the largest intercollegiate athletic conferences in NCAA Division III, will celebrate its 17th championship season of competition with the 2012-2013 academic year. Founded in May 1996 to provide a structure for intercollegiate athletics among the member institutions, the American Southwest Conference includes former members of the Texas Intercollegiate Athletic Association (TIAA) and other institutions outside the Texas border. From the eight founding institutions to today’s present group of 14 college and universities, the ASC encompasses institutions sharing similar educational and athletic philosophies. ASC championships are conducted in 16 sports (8 men, 8 women). Men’s championships are offered in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, soccer, tennis and track and field. Women’s championships are offered in basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track and field and volleyball. The American Southwest Conference is headquartered in Richardson, Texas.
