2010 SEASON PREVIEW

K-STATE SET TO ENTER NEW DECADE

Kansas State will play its 35th season of women’s tennis as the spring 2010 season opens on Jan. 30 against Northern Iowa in Des Moines, Iowa. The Wildcats will feature one of its youngest rosters in the program’s history with four freshmen and two sophomores joining senior Natasha Vieira and junior Antea Huljev. The Wildcats’ leadership will come from Vieira and its on-court drive will be displayed by Huljev, who leads the current roster with a singles mark of 36-42. Returning sophomores are Petra Chuda and Nina Sertic. During the 2009 fall campaign, Sertic and Huljev formed K-State’s most potent doubles tandem as they registered a 7-5 mark. The newcomers to the Wildcat roster are: Karla Bonacic, Carmen Borau Ramos, Maryna Chumak and Ana Gomez Aleman. The group of four freshmen gained valuable experience during their first fall campaign in Manhattan and finished with a combined record of 12-25. The group closed the fall on a high note with an 8-5 mark in the final event. Leading this young group will be head coach Steve Bietau. The all-time winningest women’s tennis coach in school history, Bietau enters his 26th season at the helm of the K-State program. Prior to the start of spring practices, Bietau took the time to answer some questions about the 2010 season. Q: Did you feel the team made improvements during the fall season? If so, how? Head Coach Steve Bietau: There were three main areas we emphasized this fall: fitness, leadership, and making the transition to college tennis - since we have such a large freshman class. There was significant progress in each one.

Q: Will the size of your roster allow you to be more creative with lineup combinations before you enter the spring schedule? HCSB: There is definitely more competition within this team and that’s something that helps us everyday. I am looking forward to having a few more options.

Q: How has Natasha emerged as a leader for this team? HCSB: Natasha is a nose to the grindstone, hardworking team member who loves the sport of tennis. There is no magic to it, she’s smart and she works very hard. Q: Do you feel the doubles team of Huljev and Sertic has grown together to become your top doubles team entering the spring? Have other double pairs caught your eye? HCSB: In their best matches this fall, Nina and Antea proved they can play very well. They will need to show that they can play on a consistent basis. Petra Chuda has made great progress in a lot of areas this fall. The combination of Petra and Karla Bonacic shows some promise. Getting our doubles teams set will be one of our priorities when the spring season starts.

Q: How do you see your singles lineup shaking out as you enter the spring schedule? HCSB: It’s normal to see players make significant progress in their play between the beginning of the year and the point where we are playing every week. Obviously some will make more than others. So I am comfortable letting the lineup work itself out. Q: Did you see improvements in the freshmen as the fall season continued? HCSB: The potential is there for this group to be very good, but I don’t think we really know the answer to this question until we get into the spring. Physically, they have worked very hard and they have experienced the normal ups and downs of players making the transition from junior tennis to college tennis. As a group, there are a lot of good possibilities.

HEAD COACH STEVE BIETAU

STEVE BIETAU Head Coach 26th Year Doane College, 1979

4

Kansas State women’s tennis coach Steve Bietau enters his 26th season as coach of the Wildcats. Bietau eclipsed the 200-win plateau in 2006 and his teams have won 224 dual matches in his prior 25 seasons as the leader of the Kansas State program. The continued success of his teams both on and off the court show Bietau’s knowledge and commitment to Kansas State University and the Wildcat tennis program. The 2008 edition of the Wildcats registered an 8-14 record and tallied an upset win over Nebraska in the Big 12 Championship first round. This is the seventh time in the last nine years and the Wildcats have reached at least the Big 12 Championship quarterfinals. K-State also placed one student-athlete on the All-Big 12 first team (Viviana Yrureta) and three student-athletes on the Academic All-Big 12 first team (Yrureta, Katerina Kudlackova and Natasha Vieira). Bietau’s 2006 squad finished the season 11-10, the eighth season in Bietau’s tenure that the Wildcats finished with a winning record. The 2006 Wildcats went 6-5 in Big 12 competition and finished undefeated in the north division. Kansas State spent the entire season ranked in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) polls and finished the season as the No. 54 team in the nation. During the 2006 season, Alena Jecminkova, who played for Bietau and the Wildcats from 1999 to 2002, was named to the Big 12 Women’s Tennis 10th Anniversary Team. In 2003, the Wildcats had the best season of any Bietau team and posted a school-record 15 victories and a record-tying seven Big 12 wins en route to reaching the round of 16 of the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history. K-State upset No. 9 Virginia Commonwealth and No. 16 Northwestern before bowing out to No. 5 USC in the regional semifinals. It marked the third time the Wildcats

have advanced to the NCAA Tournament. Kansas State finished the season at No. 32 in the ITA final poll and were ranked No. 1 in the ITA Central Region poll. Individually, Petra Sedlmajerova and Paulina Castillejos were ranked No. 4 in doubles in the region, while Sedlmajerova (No. 8), Maria Rosenberg (No. 13) and Jessica Simosa (No. 21) finished the season ranked in singles in the region. During the memorable season, the team posted a six-match winning streak, the fifth-longest in school history, and earned wins over NCAA Tournament participants Colorado and Missouri. Sedlmajerova was named to the All-Big 12 singles’ team, while Sedlmajerova and Castillejos were selected to the all-conference doubles team. In addition, Sedlmajerova became Kansas State’s career leader in both singles’ (77) and doubles’ (73) wins and third in singles’ winning percentage (.620). Also, Hayley McIver and Andrea Cooper won 22 and 20 matches, respectively, becoming the first Wildcats since 2001 to have a 20-win season. McIver was twice named the Big 12 Player of the Week on April 1 and 15. The success in 2003 was nothing new for Bietau, who has twice been named the conference coach of the year (1989, 2000) and ITA Central Region Coach of the Year (1990, 1996) during his 19 years in Manhattan. The 2000 Big 12 Conference Coach of the Year, Bietau had yet another successful season in 2000. The Wildcats posted 14 victories overall, the most since 1990, including a win over Kansas, the first win for Kansas State over the Jayhawks since 1973, and a win over then-No. 18 Baylor. For three seasons, Kansas State’s Jecminkova qualified for the NCAA Singles Championships, while she won ITA Central Region and Big 12 Conference Player of the

Year (2002), Central Region Player to Watch (2000) and All-Big 12 honors (2002, 2001 & 2000). In 2000, he helped guide Kathy Chuda to a Big 12 No. 5 singles championship, Kansas State’s fourth conference champion. In addition, Petra Sedlmajerova was honored as the region’s Rookie of the Year and the Big 12 Freshman of the Year. Bietau, also the 1989 Big Eight Conference Coach of the Year, has led the Wildcats to their only three NCAA Tournament appearances, with all three bids coming in the past seven seasons. Kansas State’s 1996 team defeated Utah, 5-0, in the first round of the Central Regional, before falling to Kansas, 5-4, in the semifinals. In 1998, the Wildcats lost in the round of the regional to No. 3-seed New Mexico, 5-3. Kansas State’s success is due in large part to Bietau’s outstanding recruiting, especially on the international level. Bietau recruited Kansas State’s only two All-Americans, Yana Dorodnova (1998) and Karina Kuregian (1994) from Russia and Armenia, respectively. Besides Chuda, Kansas State has produced three other conference singles champions under Bietau’s tutelage, Karina Kuregian, Michele Riniker and Helen Schildknecht, and with Kuregian and Martina Shrubsole and Paulina Castillejos and Hayley McIver, a pair of conference championship doubles teams. Bietau is also committed to his athletes’ success in the classroom and over the years he has coached eight ITA Scholar-Athletes, three Verizon Academic All-America and All-District selections, including Sedlmajerova in 2002 and 2003, and 16 members to the All-Big 12 Academic team, including a school-record four members in 2003. In addition, his 1997, 1998, 2001, 2002 and 2003 squads each

were named ITA All-Academic teams with a combined GPA of over 3.4. Other strong seasons for the Wildcats include 1992, when Kansas State finished second in the Big Eight and 1989 when the Wildcats won a programbest 14 victories. Over the years Bietau’s work has been respected and recognized by his peers, and for his efforts, Bietau has twice been honored by the ITA, winning the Central Region Coach of the Year honor in both 1990 and 1996. In addition to his coaching duties, Bietau has served as a member of the ITA’s Board of Directors. He also served as the ITA Central Region Chair from 1992-97. In addition, Bietau was a member of the NCAA Women’s Tennis Committee from 1992-96 and served as chair of the committee in 1997. Prior to coming to Kansas State in 1984-85, Bietau served as head men’s and women’s tennis coach at Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College from 1980-84. There, he led Hutchinson to a 13th place finish at the National Junior College Championships in 1984. While at Hutchinson, Bietau also spent time as a teaching professional at Prairie Dunes Tennis Club in Hutchinson. Bietau, a native of Rockford, Ill., prepped at Rockford West (Ill.) High School and attended Rockvalley (Ill.) Junior College before transferring to Doane (Neb.) College where he graduated in 1979. During his playing career at Doane, Bietau qualified for the NAIA National Tennis Tournament three times. Bietau resides in Manhattan with his wife Connie, their three sons, Brad, Drew and Justin, and their daughter Kayla.

BIG 12 CONFERENCE

THE BIG 12 CONFERENCE - OUTSTANDING SUCCESS The Big 12 Conference has established a consistent level of national success on the field and in the classroom as it enters its 14th season in 2009-10. Since it began play in 1996-97, the Conference can boast of 34 team crowns and over 400 individual NCAA Championships. The success continued through 2008-09 as Texas A&M captured national titles in men’s golf as well as men’s and women’s outdoor track & field. The league placed two teams in the Bowl Championship Series for the fifth time and had a team play for the BCS National Championship for the sixth season. In addition, two volleyball teams advanced to the semifinals of the NCAA Championship and Oklahoma played in the Women’s Final Four. Missouri softball and Texas baseball punched tickets to the College World Series. Among individual honors, Sally Kipyego (Texas Tech) became the first NCAA Division I female or male runner to win three consecutive cross country national championships. She was named the Honda Award winner for the third season as the nation’s top female cross country athlete, becoming just the eighth athlete to win the award three times in any sport. Jenny Barringer (Colorado) claimed the Honda Award for Track & Field while Oleksandr Nedovyesov (Oklahoma State) was named ITA/Campbell’s Tennis Player of the Year. For the fourth time in its 13-year history a Big 12 student-athlete won the Heisman Trophy. The Big 12 also established a high-water mark, as for the first time in the 74-year history of the Heisman Trophy four of the top five vote-getters hailed from the same conference, including award-winner Sam Bradford (Oklahoma). Over the past five seasons a total of 13 NCAA trophies have been hoisted by Big 12 institutions, with at least one national crown won in all but one year for the Conference, including each of the past 12 seasons. The Big 12 leads all conferences with its six appearances in BCS title games. League squads have played for the football national championship six times in the last nine years with berths in 16 BCS games overall, including two each in 2007 and 2008. The Big 12 led all conferences with five teams ranked in the final 2008 BCS Standings. In addition, an all-time high nine league players earned consensus All-America recognition this past season, more than any other conference. In basketball, 10 women’s and nine men’s teams have advanced to their respective Final Fours in the past eight seasons as the Big 12 continues its place among the elite intercollegiate athletic conferences. The six men’s Final Four participants since 2002 are tied for the most of any conference. Numerous national honors have been won by basketball student-athletes during the league's history. The Big 12 had a national player of the year honoree for the third straight year when Blake Griffin (Oklahoma) was the consensus winner in 2008-09. Courtney Paris (Oklahoma) gave the conference a consensus All-America selection in women’s basketball for the ninth straight season. The Big 12 and its member institutions are committed to a competitive environment where sportsmanship and fair play take center stage. Whether on the field, in the classroom, or within the community the student-athletes, administrators, coaches and game officials of the Big 12 support the highest ideals in sportsmanship. Big 12 student-athletes also do well in garnering national academic recognition. Sarah Pavan (Nebraska) was named Academic All-America of the Year in volleyball in 2006 and 2007 by ESPN The Magazine and College Sports Information Directors of America with a 4.0 gradepoint average in Biochemistry. She also won the national academic honor presented for all sports in 2006-07 and was named recipient of the prestigious 2006-07 HondaBroderick Award as Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year. She is the first athlete since the Big 12 was formed to earn the accolade. In its history, the conference has over 330 academic honorees, averaging more than 25 each season. The Big 12 can boast of other stories that combine on and off the field success. Patience Knight (Texas Tech) was the recipient of the Honda Inspiration Award in 2008,

given to an outstanding female college athlete who overcomes adversity to excel in her sport. She was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in 2007, but rebounded to win AllAmerica honors at the 2008 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships. Competitive excellence, scholarship and sportsmanship are all equal components of the Big 12 philosophy. All-Big 12 teams and Academic All-Big 12 squads are recognized for each sport at the end of their respective seasons. At the end of each academic year, the Conference honors its top male and female student-athletes with the Big 12 Athlete of the Year and Big 12 Sportsperson of the Year awards. Institutions can also nominate student-athletes for the prestigious Dr. Prentice Gautt Postgraduate Scholarships at the end of each academic year. A total of 225 scholars have received over 1.3 million in postgraduate financial aid through the first 13 years of the program. The Big 12 sponsors 21 sports. Men’s squads include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, indoor track & field, outdoor track & field, swimming & diving, tennis and wrestling. Women’s teams are fielded in basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics, indoor track & field, outdoor track & field, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis and volleyball. The conference is made up of 12 institutions that have shared many traditional rivalries throughout their histories. Member schools include - Baylor University, University of Colorado, Iowa State University, University of Kansas, Kansas State University, University of Missouri, University of Nebraska, University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, University of Texas, Texas A&M University and Texas Tech University. The institutions created a league that encompasses seven states, over 45 million people and television households in 18 of the top 100 markets within its geographic footprint. The conference conducts championships for 20 of its 21 sports. Each championship helps to determine teams and/or individuals that will represent the Conference in national postseason competition. The winner of the Big 12 football championship game earns the league’s berth into the prestigious Bowl Championship Series. In the last several years the Big 12 has increased its bowl agreements and expanded television opportunities for all sports through contracts with ABC/ESPN and FSN. Most recently, the league renewed and expanded its multiyear arrangement with ABC/ESPN, Inc. The new contract began in 2008-09. In its first 13 years, the Conference has distributed more than $1.1 billion to its 12 member institutions. The Big 12 staff administers to over 4,600 student-athletes in 21 sports. The conference office is headquartered in Irving, Texas.

ATHLETIC ADMINISTRATION

JOHN CURRIE Director of Athletics Wake Forest ‘93

38

John Currie, who was introduced as Kansas State’s 15th Director of Athletics on May 18, has emphasized the importance of accessibility and accountability early in his tenure as K-State sets its sights on achieving the vision of having a model intercollegiate athletics program. A highlight of Currie’s early initiatives was the implementation of the “K-State Pledge” in July which includes a series of financial accountability measures and core values that will serve as the foundation of K-State’s vision. Among those values are five goals: a world-class student-athlete experience; value to the University, city and state; integrity and transparency in relation to ethics, finance and NCAA compliance; championshiplevel athletic performances; and the best fan experience in the Big 12. In an effort to create the best fan experience possible, Currie’s staff created new ticket initiatives for football that led to the largest homeopening crowd in Bill Snyder Family Stadium history on September 5, 2009 (50,750). In his first 60 days on the job, Currie also worked to establish relationships across campus, through steps such as personally visiting with K-State deans in their respective offices. He also serves as a member of President Kirk Schulz’s cabinet and has made presentations and held question and answer sessions with many other campus organizations. Currie also immediately implemented a communications plan in an effort to regain the trust of all Wildcat fans, which included in-person stops throughout the state, regular online letters and chats and K-State’s first-ever FanForum conference call, which saw more than 3,000 fans participate. Understanding the importance of coaching continuity in building successful programs, Currie moved quickly to sign 2009 Big 12 Baseball Coach of the Year Brad Hill to a contract extension and also led the effort to complete the five-year contract for legendary returning football coach Bill Snyder. Currie began his duties as Athletics Director on June 8 after 10 years at the University of Tennessee, most recently serving as Executive Associate Athletics Director for Athletic Director Mike Hamilton. Currie was responsible for the direct management of units that annually produced $84 million in revenue and gifts, including the department’s fundraising, marketing, ticket-

CURRIE’S VISION FOR A MODEL INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS PROGRAM • Provide a world-class student-athlete experience • Value to our University, community and state • Integrity and transparency in relation matters of ethics, NCAA compliance and finance • Championship-level athletic performances • The best fan experience in the Big 12 ing, media relations, public relations, internet and broadcasting offices. Currie also provided oversight for the men’s basketball program and other department initiatives and helped direct numerous searches that led to the hiring of successful head coaches. An integral member of the facility planning team for UT’s $200 million master plan renovations for Neyland Stadium, Currie also directed a $36 million arena renovation and basketball practice facility construction project that was completed in the fall of 2007. He developed and implemented the revenue models to fund both projects without outside funding from the state or local government, tax dollars or University-derived support. Currie’s accomplishments at Tennessee included helping the University secure a $50 million commitment in 2006 for academic and athletic needs, a gift which represented the largest from an individual in Tennessee history. Units under his direction also negotiated an $84 million multimedia rights contract with then-Host Communications, and a $19.3 million all-sport contract with Adidas. Under his leadership, giving to Tennessee athletics more than doubled from $19.5 million in 2003 to $41.6 million in 2008. Currie led the negotiation and implementation of new student season ticket sales for football in 2008, resulting in $900,000 of new department revenue in its first year. He also implemented new regular-season football sales strategies that helped Tennessee set a new single-game attendance record of 109,061 in 2004. Tennessee’s athletic facilities as a whole benefitted from Currie’s efforts as the development office secured individual-naming recognition gifts that included $4 million for a new aquatic center, $2 million for a new softball stadium, $1.5 million for a new soccer stadium and $2 million for baseball renovations. Tennessee’s track complex also was renovated, while ground was broken last summer for a new Greg Norman-designed intercollegiate golf practice complex and clubhouse.

Currie oversaw the development and execution of a comprehensive marketing plan in 2005 that led to attendance at SEC home basketball games improving 54 percent from the previous year, while student attendance increased by 197 percent. Currie joined the Tennessee staff in 1997 as Executive Director of the Volunteer Athletic Scholarship Fund (VASF). Following a two-year stint as Assistant Athletics Director at Wake Forest, Currie returned to Knoxville in 2000 as Assistant Athletics Director for Development and served as director for the "STEP UP" campaign. As UT’s firstever capital campaign, it exceeded its goal and reached a total of $48.6 million, $4 million over the intended goal, with gifts from 870 donors. In 2002, Currie was promoted to Associate Athletics Director for Development. He served as President of the Southeastern Conference (SEC) development officers group for 2004-05, chaired the 2007 CASE national athletic development conference and was a member of the SEC ticket policy committee. The Knoxville News Sentinel recognized Currie in December 2008 by naming him to its prestigious “Top 40 Leaders Under 40” list. He began his professional career at Wake Forest in 1993 as a Deacon Club intern before being named Assistant Deacon Club Director in 1994, a position he held until 1997. Highlights of Currie’s stints at Wake Forest include developing student and young alumni programs, creating a new endowment and planned giving program, managing the coaches circle volunteer program and assisting in the leadership of the “Touchdown 2000” football field house and Miller Center basketball practice/academic counseling facility campaigns. Currie earned his master’s in sports management from Tennessee in 2003 and is a 1993 Wake Forest graduate. He and his wife Mary Lawrence, have three children, Jack, Virginia and Mary-Dell.

THIS IS MANHATTAN, KAN.

WELCOME TO THE LITTLE APPLE Manhattan is located in the northern end of the beautiful Flint Hills. The city was founded in the first days of Kansas settlement and currently has a population of 45,000 in the city, 100,000 in the immediate region. It is a modern, progressive city that is home to Kansas State University, the Fort Riley Military Reservation and several successful corporate citizens. It is located in north central Kansas, on Interstate 70, 125 miles west of Kansas City, and 50 miles west of the state capitol in Topeka. HISTORY It was on Valentine’s Day in 1857 that Manhattan officially became a city in the

42

Midwest. And it was only because the Kansas River had been low two years earlier that the city was located where it is now. It all began in the spring of 1855 when the Cincinnati Company left Ohio on the steamboat Hartford. They were headed for central Kansas via the Ohio, Mississippi, Missouri, and Kansas Rivers. Their goal: to settle a town and name it Manhattan, thinking it might become a second Manhattan, New York. On the way up the Kansas River, three men stopped, went ashore, and hired a wagon. They drove to what is now Junction City, where they intended to start the Manhattan of the Midwest. But the Hartford

ran aground in the Kansas River south of the confluence of the Blue and Kansas Rivers. The Cincinnati Company and all of the small groups of settlers already in the area joined forces to form a town, which they agreed to call Manhattan. The first post office was established in 1856, and the city became incorporated February 14, 1857. Manhattan has grown steadily since then. Although Manhattan, Kansas, may not be another New York City in size, residents of Manhattan of the Midwest think you’ll savor the savvy of “The Little Apple.” “The Little Apple” is home to more than 50,000 people today. Manhattan is nestled in

THIS IS MANHATTAN, KAN.

among the picturesque Flint Hills, so named for their numerous bands of limestone and flint. These bands of flinty gravel convinced many an early settler that the land was not suitable for cultivation. A few resourceful pioneers, however, chose to stay and build their farmsteads in the sheltered valleys where water was available even in times of drought and where their cattle could graze on the grassy uplands. The Flint Hills region still remains largely untouched by the plow and is the last large preserve of native tallgrass prairie in the U.S. Today, Manhattan residents take pride in the local history. The community is especially proud of its nickname, “The Little Apple”symbolic of a polished, wholesome Midwestern Manhattan, founded by pioneers who foresaw great things for this part of the U.S.

A TRUE COLLEGE TOWN A student-athlete’s life involves more than academics and athletics. Like most college students, student-athletes need to relax and have a good time, and Manhattan is the place to do just that. Manhattan reflects the joys and opportunities of big-city living while retaining a friendly, open atmosphere. Manhattan has many appealing places to shop, eat and socialize. An award-winning shopping mall is located in the heart of the downtown region, and Aggieville – a district of shops and restaurants just beyond the southern border of the campus – continues to be particularly popular with students. There are several beautiful parks and walkways throughout the city, while picturesque Tuttle Creek Reservoir sits just five miles from campus for seasonal swimming, water skiing and boating. Additionally, the 13,500-seat Bramlage Coliseum have become a favorite stop for major concerts throughout the year.

AGGIEVILLE - Southeast of campus, the area is named for former K-State Aggies - Pre- and postgame area of activity - Center of student recreation, nightlife and shopping. MANHATTAN TOWN CENTER - Shopping mall featuring over 70 specialty stores including Dillard’s, JC Penney, and Sears.

ACADEMIC SUPPORT

Kansas State’s Academic Learning Center provides a variety of services to help K-State student athletes excel in the classroom.

PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE IN THE CLASSROOM Kansas State tennis is unique in that it has a program that nurtures the development of its student-athletes. This system begins with a focus on the period of transition from high school to college and continues throughout the college years. Finally, career opportunities are cultivated for the student-athlete as he passes into the next phase of development, where close contact is maintained for a lifetime.

COLLEGE TRANSITION/SUCCESS SEMINAR • Classes offered to incoming KSU tennis players during the first semester on campus. • Focuses on skills needed for success in the college classroom as well as social and career development. • Areas of emphasis include: – Time Management – Financial Aid Information – Campus Orientation and University Resources – Study Skills – Reading/Writing/Communications Skills – Goal Setting – Career Opportunities/Selection – KSU Expectations – Success Orientation – Social Issues: -- Coping with life issues and problems -- Media relations -- Problem-solving techniques -- Etiquette

44

Kansas State tennis also has developed a model academic program for incoming student-athletes: • The student-athlete and his academic counselor work in conjunction with the Dean’s office and the academic advisors for their major in an effort to provide the first-year student-athlete with the best academic course load and academic support services for each individual. • For example, a series of core freshman courses have been developed within the areas of English, math and

social sciences which provide a solid base for the pursuit of any major. • Scheduled study times with trained professionals are held during the day throughout the week. • This, of course, is in addition to the nightly study tables staffed with an abundance of academic tutors.

EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT SERVICES • Program that helps students develop learning and critical thinking skills. • Provides the following services: – Academic counseling – Career planning – Study skills instruction – Tutoring and help sessions – Computer lab and resources

TUTORING AND MENTORING • An effective and productive tutorial & mentoring support program for our Kansas State student-athletes is the cornerstone of our student services effort. • Participation by students in Intercollegiate Athletics takes an extraordinary amount of time and energy. Effective tutoring is a way to give back time to our student-athletes. We seek to accommodate any tutorial request from any student-athlete in any subject at any time. • Tutoring support can be a powerful tool for the studentathlete to make up for time spent with their teams, and in their sport, and which allows our student-athletes to compete with the regular students in the classroom. • Mentoring support in addition to tutoring provides additional support for student-athletes needing special assistance. • Our professional tutoring staff will not only instruct students on the content of their course work, but on the study strategies needed for the course and the study skills necessary for independent learning.

THE COMPLETE STUDENT • Support services available for student-athletes to encourage them to develop a greater balance between academics and sports. • Designed to provide student-athletes an opportunity to participate in professional development activities outside the classroom and athletics field. – Leadership development – Career exploration – Multicultural experience – Mentoring/role models – Personal/social development – Community service opportunities

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE IN THE GYM The Powercat Strength and Conditioning Program is designed to “build better athletes,” not to develop powerlifters, Olympic weightlifters or body-builders. Obviously, when most people think of strength coaches, they think of weightlifting. Kansas State’s Moore Strength Complex boasts two weight rooms, over 12,000 square feet of floor space, 35,000 lbs. of weights, plus platforms, racks, benches and machines. In 2006, the John L. Allen Strength Center was completed at Tointon Family Stadium adding another 1,500 square feet of weight room access. Weight training is a big part of the program, but the strength and conditioning coaches at K-State do not coach weightlifters, it trains athletes. Speed development, agility, flexibility, coordination, endurance and nutrition are some of the areas that fall under the umbrella of strength and conditioning. Kansas State strives to develop the total athlete through a total body program. K-State employs nutrition counters in both strength facilities to “fuel the athletes” and equip them to meet the demands of training.

“Our strength and conditioning staff works very hard to help our players develop their full athletic potential. Significant gains are being made in both performance and injury prevention. They help our players be better athletes.” - K-State women’s tennis coach Steve Bietau

K-STATE TRADITIONS

NICKNAME

POWERCAT LOGO

WABASH CANNONBALL

Through its first 19 seasons of athletic competition, Kansas State had used “Aggies” as its nickname. But prior to the 1915 season, new football coach John “Chief” Bender gave his squad the nickname “Wildcats.” The moniker lasted the one season Bender coached at KState. Under football coach Z.G. Clevenger in 1917, the school team became known as the “Farmers.” In 1920 another new football coach, Charles Bachman, took over the program, renaming the team “Wildcats.” This time, the nickname stuck.

One of the most recognizable athletic logos in the nation is the K-State Powercat. The logo was introduced by Bill Snyder shortly after his arrival in Manhattan as the attitude of the entire athletics department and university was changing. Manhattan native Tom Bookwalter, in cooperation with head coach Bill Snyder, created the powerful logo that is a prominent feature on the K-State football helmet, at Wagner Field, on the back of the Dev Nelson Pressbox, clothing, flags, bottled water, vanity plates for cars and just about anywhere there can be one.

Everyone knows that familiar tune Wabash Cannonball. In fact, Wabash and K-State are almost synonymous. What many people do not know is how the song became an integral part of Wildcat athletics. In the fall of 1969, the department of music burnt down. Every piece of music in the building was destroyed. The only thing that was salvaged was what was in the band director’s brief case. That included a piece of music titled the Wabash Cannonball. With an upcoming football game and no music, that left only one thing to do. The band members played the song loud and often. A song that originally had no connection became a second fight song.

WILLIE WILDCAT Willie, a student bedecked in a oversized Wildcat head, is Kansas State’s No. 1 fan. Willie Wildcats are selected yearly by a panel appointed by the cheerleading coach. The mascot is a central part of athletic contests, but also attends functions around the state as an ambassador. Traditionally, the identity of the student portraying Willie is kept secret.

KSU COLORS The school color Royal Purple was adopted in the fall of 1896 by a committee of “Miss Minnie L. Copeland, Jr. and Miss Winnifred Houghton and Miss Ina E. Holyrod, of the senior class, and perhaps one or more others.” Although K-State’s only official color is purple, white has been used as a complimentary color for many years. Silver is also a common second or third color. Former head basketball coach Cotton Fitzsimmons incorporated gold during his two-year stint (1968-70), but gold or yellow has not been used since that time. The term “Purple Pride,” which is often used in association with KSU athletics, was given rise during the tenure of head football coach Vince Gibson (1967-74).

SCHOOL SONGS The Alma Mater was selected as a result of an 1888 campus contest. H.W. Jones (’88) was responsible for K-State’s prized result. Jones’ original work was four stanzas including the chorus. His version has been slightly altered over the years to include just two stanzas and the changing of the words from KSAC to KSU. The school’s fight song is entitled “Wildcat Victory.”

ALMA MATER “I know a spot that I love full well, ‘Tis not in forest nor yet in dell, ever it holds me with magic spell, I think of thee Alma Mater. KSU, we’ll carry the banner high, KSU long, long may thy colors fly. Loyal to thee, thy children shall swell the cry. “Hail, Hail, Hail Alma Mater.”

SLOGANS Several chants and slogans are used in association with the team. “Purple Pride” and “Eat ‘Em Up, Eat ‘Em Up K-SU” were mentioned earlier on this page. One slogan that has virtually died out is “Every Man A Wildcat.” The term was popular in the ‘50s, ‘60s and early ‘70s, and once adorned the front of the Ahearn Field House press box. Since the term referred to only one gender, however, it has faded. Kansas State, itself, is referred to in many different shortened versions. The most popular is “K-State,” which is used by alums, friends and journalists from coast to coast.

WILDCAT VICTORY “Fight you K-State Wildcats. For Alma Mater fight-fightfight. “Glory into combat for the purple and white. Faithful to our colors, we shall ever be, fighting ever fighting for a Wildcat Victory!”

WHAT EVERY ALUMNUS AND BOOSTER OF KANSAS STATE UNIVERSITY SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE NCAA As a supporter of Kansas State University, you have a lot of pride in your school. You are proud of the high academic standards, our adherence to values and the overall quality of the K-State experience. Kansas State has a long tradition of integrity but to help assure compliance with NCAA and conference rules, please take a few minutes to read this information. The eligibility of Kansas State’s student-athletes and reputation of the department and university depend greatly upon your cooperation. Under NCAA regulations, Kansas State is held responsible for the actions of our boosters. “Representatives of Athletic Interests” may not engage in any recruitment activities or provide benefits or privileges to prospective and enrolled student-athletes. A representative is any individual who has purchased tickets, contributed to the Kansas State Athletics Department, donated to Catbacker or Alumni groups, or who has otherwise promoted KState’s athletics program.

KEY RULE: NCAA BYLAW 13.01.5 In Division I, representatives of athletics interest are prohibited from making in-person, on-or-off campus recruiting contacts, written, telephonic communications or e-mail transactions with a prospect or the prospect’s relatives or legal guardians.

INTERPRETATIONS 1. A representative of a Division I institution is prohibited from making in-person recruiting contact with a prospect and his or her parents/guardian on or off campus. Limited Exception: You may have contact with a prospect regarding permissible pre-enrollment activities such as summer employment, provided the prospect has already signed a National Letter of Intent and K-State is aware that you are making these contacts in regard to employment. 2. A Division I representative is prohibited from writing or telephoning a prospect and his or her parents or legal guardians.

Limited Exception: You may have a phone conversation with a prospect only if the prospect initiates the call. Such a call may not be prearranged by a KState staff member and you are not permitted to have a recruiting conversation, but may exhibit

normal civility. You must refer any questions about the University’s athletic program to the athletic department.

ships with prospects or student-athletes, their parents and relatives. Contact is permitted as long as it is not made for recruiting purposes.

3. A representative is prohibited from contacting a prospect’s coach, principal, or counselor in an attempt to evaluate the prospect.

WHAT IS NOT PERMITTED UNDER NCAA RULES?

Limited Exception: NCAA rules do not preclude you from viewing a prospect’s contest on your own initiative, but you may not contact the prospect, pick up game films or transcripts.

WHAT CAN I DO? If you know of a high school or junior college student-athlete who might want to attend Kansas State, the only permissible activity for a representative is to call the appropriate K-State coach.

WHAT IS AN “EXTRA BENEFIT?” An extra benefit is any special arrangement by an institutional employee or a representative of the institution’s athletics interests to provide a student-athlete or the student-athlete’s relative or friend a benefit not expressly authorized by NCAA legislation.

Provide gifts, free or reduced cost services including meals, drinks, clothing laundry, haircuts, legal fee or other benefits to prospects, studentathletes, their relatives or friends. Provide tickets to any event for a student-athlete or his/her relatives or friends. Contact prospective student-athletes for recruiting purposes. This includes emails, phone calls, letters, face-to-face contact and personal websites (i.e. Facebook.com, MySpace.com, etc.) Provide cash, entertainment, use of your home or other items of value. Provide the use of an automobile. Provide rent-free or reduced cost housing for any length of time. Arrange or co-sign a loan for a student-athlete or his/her relatives. Provide employment for relatives/friends as a result of their relationship to student-athletes.

QUESTIONS? Examples or Extra Benefits: - Providing transportation - Clothes - Entertainment - Preferential loan terms - Wagnes not commensurate with duties

WHAT CAN I DO FOR CURRENT STUDENT-ATHLETES OR PROSPECTS? You may provide an occasional meal for student-athletes in your home. Please contact the athletics compliance office for more information. You may invite a team to dinner or to meet a group of alumni in a city where they are competing. The NCAA allows student-athletes as a team to receive special benefits not alowed as individuals. Arrangements for such events should be made in advance with the head coach. You may provide employment for a student-athlete. Wages must be commensurate with the going rate for similar services and only for work actually performed. You may attend high school, community college and public events in which prospects are participating however no attempt should be made to contact or recruit prospects at these events. You may continue established family relation-
