WELCOME TO KANSAS WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY Welcome to Kansas Wesleyan University. For nearly125 years, Kansas Wesleyan has provided its students with a faith-based, values-centered education in the arts, sciences, and professional studies areas characterized by excellence within a caring community. Affiliated with the United Methodist Church, we offer over 30 undergraduate programs at the associate and baccalaureate levels, several special programs for adults who wish to finish their education, and the MBA degree. We are located in Salina, the crossroads of Kansas, so our students are in an ideal location for internships, student teaching placements, volunteer activities, and off-campus jobs. There is also easy access to shopping, restaurants, theatres, parks, museums, and cultural arts events. The intercollegiate athletics program is an important part of the life of many Kansas Wesleyan students. We are proud members of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Champions of Character program. Our teams compete through the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference (KCAC), and that competition demands both focus and commitment. The lessons our students learn through their participation in our athletic programs help develop those skills that will be needed throughout life: goal setting, commitment to excellence, teamwork, and communication. We have made a strong commitment to having the programs, services, and facilities needed to support a strong athletic program.

Dr. Craig Dean Willis President & CEO

In addition to our athletic program, our students can choose from a full range of student activities that appeal to a wide variety of interests. Just a few examples of student activities include vocal and instrumental music groups, theatre, studio arts, debate and forensics, yearbook, newspaper, student government, ministry and fellowship groups, intramurals, and numerous other special interest organizations. I am impressed by the number of our athletes who become actively involved in many of these other opportunities on campus. At Kansas Wesleyan University, you can make a difference, and you can achieve things far beyond what you may have imagined possible. I invite you to take the time to walk around our beautiful campus and sense the excitement of Kansas Wesleyan University.

WELCOME TO TODAY’S GAME FROM MATT WILLIAMS, DIRECTOR OF ATHLETIC PROGRAMS Welcome to Kansas Wesleyan University, the home of the Coyotes. As I embark on my fifth year as Director of Athletic Programs, KWU continues its commitment to excellence, providing outstanding opportunities for student-athletes to excel not only in athletics, but also in the classroom. KWU’s commitment to give students the tools they need to succeed is evident all over campus. Our athletics programs continue to be a dominant force in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference. Kansas Wesleyan won seven KCAC Championships in 2008-09, and for a third straight year had the best conference and overall combined records in the eight major sports sponsored by the conference (Football, Volleyball, Men’s and Women’s Soccer, Men’s and Women’s Basketball, Baseball and Softball). Wesleyan won 86 conference games last season and 145 overall. Women’s Soccer made its second straight appearance in the NAIA National Tournament, the Women’s Basketball team made history for the program, winning its first conference title since 1988 and its first ever KCAC Tournament title. The Coyotes then earned a best ever No.9 ranking in the final NAIA Top 25 poll and received a No.2 seed in its section of the NAIA National Championship bracket. Kaylaen Dittmer was named the KCAC Player of the Year, and Coach Gordon Reimer earned KCAC Coach of the Year honors and also went on to earn Kansas Women’s College Coach of the Year honors from the Kansas Basketball Coaches’ Association. The KWU Baseball team made school history as well, winning its second straight Regular Season title and a second KCAC Tournament title in the last three years and advancing to the Championship Series of the Opening Round of the NAIA World Series. Coach Dave Dawson was named KCAC Coach of the Year for the third time in his four seasons leading KWU Baseball, Brandon Mathes was named KCAC Player of the Year for a second straight year and Mike Pettibone earned the Rawlings NAIA National Gold Glove at Third Base. This year we celebrate winning our 25th Championship since the start of the 2005-06 athletic season, and continue our emphasis on the “Three E’s,” where student-athletes are: EXPECTED to graduate from Kansas Wesleyan University, EXPECTED to strive just as hard in the classroom as on the athletic field, and EXPECTED to have a winning season. Our coaches have continued to recruit high quality student-athletes that excel not only on the athletic field, but in the classroom as well. Last year, our Women’s Basketball team was named as a NAIA Scholar Team and KWU had 12 NAIA Scholar-Athletes in 2008-09. The faculty, staff, and administration of Kansas Wesleyan University have all taken pride in what we have accomplished and will continue to take pride in the success we will have this year both on and off the athletic playing field. I hope you enjoy today’s contest and are impressed with our student athletes’ accomplishments both on and off the athletic field. As you look around here today and through this athletic program, I encourage you to please support all our local sponsors and thank them for supporting these young student athletes. These sponsors play a very important role in maintaining the success of the athletic programs here at Kansas Wesleyan University.

THE KANSAS COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC CONFERENCE (KCAC) The Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference, commonly called “The Kansas Conference,” is a prominent intercollegiate athletics conference comprised of ten outstanding independent or private institutions of higher education in the state. The origins of the KCAC are traced to February 15, 1890, when the Kansas Intercollegiate Athletic Association became the result of the first successful attempt at organization among Kansas colleges, “to promote and regulate amateur intercollegiate athletics.” At that time the association or conference included not only private universities and colleges but also Kansas Agriculture College (now KSU), Kansas University, and Washburn University. Football seems to have been the major sponsored sport, and Baker University won the championship for the first three or four years. In about 1902 this early association became allied with the Kansas College Athletic Conference, a group which was the first to adopt a definite set of rules and regulations. It also promoted an annual track and field meet which has continued yearly since, except for World War years. Basketball has been sponsored since 1904. Football was revived in 1907. Tennis began as early as 1912. Golf was added in 1923. By this time the name of the conference had been altered to the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference; it had grown to 17 college members and two allied members: Baker, Bethany, Bethel, College of Emporia, Fairmount (now WSU), Friends, Kansas Wesleyan, KSTC of Emporia (now ESU), KSTC of Hays (now FHSU), KSTC of Pittsburg (now PSU), McPherson, Ottawa, St.Benedict’s (now Benedictine), St.Mary’s, Sterling (formerly Cooper), Southwestern, and Washburn, and with St.John’s and Kansas City University (Kansas) as allied members. Kansas University and Kansas Aggies had dropped out earlier to join other conferences. In 1923 the College of Emporia, KSTC of Emporia, KSTC of Hays, KSTC of Pittsburg, Wichita (formerly Fairmount), Southwestern, and Washburn withdrew to form the Central Conference. The present legal entity comes from a reorganization of the conference when the predecessor Kansas Intercollegiate Athletic Conference formally disbanded on December 1, 1928, and a new conference was formed which again was called the Kansas College Athletic Conference. The members were Baker, Bethany, Kansas Wesleyan, McPherson, Ottawa, and St.Mary’s colleges. At that time sportswriters quickly gave the KCAC league a nickname: the “Little Six,” in contrast to the Big Six (which became Big Eight, now Big 12) which also was organized in 1928. St.Mary’s College was discontinued in 1931. The College of Emporia returned to the fold in 1933, and Bethel was readmitted in 1939. Friends, a former member of the KIAC, was admitted in 1953. Sterling and Southwestern were approved for membership in 1958. In 1968 Tabor College and St. Mary of the Plains College were admitted to make twelve members in the conference, and the conference was organized into Southern and Northern divisions until 1970 — when Baker, College of Emporia, and Ottawa withdrew to join two separate Missouri-based conferences. In the mid-1970s the formal name was changed again to Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference. In 1975 women’s intercollegiate athletics were incorporated into programs of the KCAC. Ottawa was readmitted in 1981, bringing the conference membership to 10. In 1992 St.Mary of the Plains College in Dodge City left the conference and eventually closed.

THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS (NAIA) A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE NAIA 1937 | Dr. James Naismith and local leaders form National College Basketball Tournament staged at Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, Mo. 1938 | Basketball tournament expands to 32 teams 1940 | National Association of Intercollegiate Basketball (NAIB) formed; first convention held 1948 | John Wooden’s Indiana State team brings first African-American student-athlete to the NAIB tournament 1952 | NAIB adopts new moniker – National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) - and introduces men’s championships in golf, tennis and outdoor track and field 1953 | NAIA becomes first collegiate association to invite historically black institutions into membership 1957 | Tennessee State becomes the first historically black institution to win a collegiate basketball national championship 1980 | NAIA becomes first collegiate athletics association to sponsor both men’s and women’s championships by adding women’s basketball, cross country, gymnastics, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, softball, swimming and diving, tennis and volleyball championships 1986 | NAIA Council of Presidents moves from advisory to governance role 1988 | Strict academic eligibility standards for all participating student-athletes adopted

The purpose of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) is to promote the education and development of students through intercollegiate athletic participation. Member institutions, although varied and diverse, share a common commitment to high standards and to the principle that participation in athletics serves as an integral part of the total educational process. The NAIA embraces the concept of the student and recognizes the importance of the individuality of each member institution, the value of the conferences and Association of Independent Institutions (A.I.I.) structure, and the benefits of membership in a national association. The NAIA supports gender equity. Gender equity is an atmosphere and reality where fair distribution of overall athletic opportunity and resources, proportionate to enrollment, are available to women and men, and where no student-athlete, coach or athletics administrator is discriminated against in any way in the athletics program. That is to say, an athletics program is gender-equitable when the men’s sports program would be pleased to accept as its own the overall participation opportunities and resources currently allocated to the women’s sports program and vice versa. The NAIA has 50,000 student-athletes participating at nearly 300 member colleges and universities throughout the United States and Canada. Divided into 25 conferences and the Association of Independent Institutions (A.I.I.), the NAIA offers 23 championships in 13 sports.

NAIA AT A GLANCE • Nearly 300 member colleges and universities • 23 national championships • 650,000 students • First to include black colleges and students in championships • First to include women in national championships • First to develop system-wide character initiative with substantive programming

Since 1937, the NAIA has continued a long tradition of pushing the envelope and making a positive difference in the lives of students, coaches and parents. The Champions of Character program is the latest cutting-edge addition to the NAIA’s proud history of innovation. Through Champions of Character, the NAIA seeks to create an environment in which every student-athlete, coach, official and spectator are committed to the true spirit of competition through the five core values: respect, integrity, responsibility, servant leadership and sportsmanship.

2000 | NAIA introduces Champions of Character initiative along with its new brand emphasizing character development among NAIA studentathletes 2001 | NAIA headquarters returns to metro Kansas City in partnership with the City of Olathe, Kan. 2007 | NAIA opens new headquarters in downtown Kansas City, Mo.

2009 FOOTBALL SEASON OUTLOOK For someone on the outside looking in, the 2009 edition of the Kansas Wesleyan Coyote Football team may be more of a rebuilding project than anything else. Wesleyan lost a majority of the starting lineup on the offensive side, including five of six starters at the skill positions, and two offensive linemen. Things do look better on the defensive side of the ball, as the Coyotes only lost a pair of linemen, a linebacker and one in the defensive backfield. Despite the loss of talent on both sides of the ball, Head Coach Dave Dallas isn’t concerned about the upcoming campaign, which opens September 12 at home against Tabor College. “Our staff has done a great job of recruiting and with a strong nucleus of returners, and the group of recruits coming in, we have a chance to be pretty good in 2009,” Dallas said. “We lost some key players, but I think we did an exceptional job of bringing in some guys that can play.” Approximately 110 student-athletes reported to camp on August 21, with 44 of them being freshmen. Dallas isn’t concerned about that fact. “Our freshman class is going to be really good,” he said. “It’s going to help with our specials teams with our depth on both sides of the ball with the younger players. They will make us a better football team.” As long as the Coyotes can come together as a unit, things could turn out very well in 2009. “Overall we have to be able to come together and gel as both an offensive unit and a defensive unit,” Dallas said. “Offensively we have to come together and get the ball in the guys’ hands and let them perform.” THE OFFENSE The biggest changes are on the offensive side of the ball, but a strong group of younger players mixed in with a good set of recruits, both from the high school and junior college levels will fill the voids. However the changes are not just on the field, but also on the offensive staff. Former Offensive Coordinator William Wille stepped down after 12 seasons with the Coyotes, opening the door for Ryan Mills, who served as Passing Game Coordinator in 2008 to move into the position. Dallas is pleased with the changes on the offensive side of the ball, and it should make for an exciting brand of football this season. “I think our new staff has done a great job of bringing in a renewed energy on the offensive side of the ball, and I like that,” Dallas said. “I like what we did this spring in our changes in our offense as far as what we are going to do, and I felt good about the direction we want to go and need to go.” Dallas feels that the strongest group of returners is in the offensive line, with three

players coming back in Sean Junkins (6-4, 320, Jr., Malibu, Calif. / El Camino College (Calif.)) and Kyle Barthel (5-10, 230, Sr., Redding, Calif. / Shasta College (Calif.)). The Coyotes will also look to a couple of younger players who saw playing time last year to contribute again this year on the offensive line in Zach Brown (6-3, 325, So., Fort Worth, Texas / Arlington-Lamar HS), Will Slasor (6-3, 280, Jr., San Antonio, Texas / Taft HS) and Travis White (6-5, 280, So., Richardson, Texas / J.J. Pearce HS). “Junkins is one of our main returning guys, but there’s also (Kyle) Barthel and (Will) Slasor who played a lot last year, “Dallas said. “Also Zach Brown, who started five games as a freshman for us in 2007. Those are all key returning guys for us up front.” Newcomers will also be key for the Coyotes up front, and Dallas feels that a group of players that came in at the semester break last year, coupled with some spring additions will be key. Cody Ramirez (6-4, 320, Jr., Marysville, Calif. / Yuba College (Calif.) and Jeremy Smith (6-5, 350, Jr., Corona, Calif. / Riverside College (Calif.)) are two players that should fit into the mix somewhere in 2009. Dallas said the offensive line is loaded with exceptional talent, but that one thing will make them stand out in 2009. “I feel real good about the potential we have up front,” he said. “It’s just a matter of getting that group to gel together as a cohesive group.” Three players who return at tight end from last season will split time in 2009. Eric Thrush (6-5, 250, Sr., Janesville, Calif. / Shasta College (Calif.)), Matt Panke (6-3, 210, So., Flower Mound, Texas / Flower Mound HS) and Dan Reynolds (6-3, 250, Sr., Sacramento, Calif. / American River College (Calif.)) all return from 2008. Thrush caught nine balls for 102 yards and two touchdowns last season. “Thrush started almost every game last year for us, and Panke is a very talented young football player,” Dallas said. “What is also nice is that all three of those guys are a different style of player, which is beneficial to us.” Dallas also sees freshman Logan Glover (64, 225, Lewisville, Texas / Temple Christian Academy) with the potential to fit into the mix at the tight end position. With the losses of Marcus Lowe and Jason Dolan to graduation at the wide receiver position, it leaves the door wide open in 2009. Aaron Miller (6-2, 180, Sr., Deerfield, Kan. / Garden City CC (Kan.)) is the lone returner from last year’s team, catching five balls for 62 yards last year. Outside of Miller, the receiver corps will be all-new in 2009, but Dallas feels the group coming in will fit in nicely. “We had several guys here this spring that got a chance to learn the system, which was a positive in itself,” Dallas said. “They were able to

25 CHAMPIONSHIPS SINCE 2005

go out and do 7-on-7 by themselves and things like that and I think that’s a big plus.” Corey Ham (5-9, 160, Jr., Redlands, Calif. / Riverside College (Calif.)), Anthony Roma (6-3, 195, Jr., Mira Loma, Calif. / Chaffey College (Calif.)), William Hall (6-0, 200, Jr., Tallahassee, Fla. / Feather River College (Calif.)) Jermaine Stovall (5-9, 190, Fr., Fort Worth, Texas / Tyler Junior College (Texas)) and Troy Alsobrook (5-8, 160, Jr., Riverside, Calif. / Mt. San Jacinto College (Calif.)) all were with the Coyotes for the spring semester and looked good in the spring practice sessions, which concluded with the spring scrimmage. “We threw the ball effectively during the spring game,” Dallas said. “I was extremely pleased at this groups’ development for us throughout the spring.” A pair of newcomers who are expected to push for spots are Anthony Berry (6-0, 190, Jr., Tarzana, Calif. / University of South Dakota) and Jason Engelberg (5-8, 170, So., Newhall, Calif. / College of the Canyons (Calif.)). “Both Anthony and Jason will add to our receiving corps, and we have a very talented group of young players that will have an impact for us as well, led by Brett Giesen,” Dallas said. Dallas is very excited about the prospects of Giesen (5-11, 175, Fr., Laguna Niguel, Calif. / Dana Hills HS) for the upcoming season, comparing him to former Wesleyan player Steven Valliere. Giesen played tailback primarily in high school, but will move to slot for the Coyotes in 2009. “Giesen played in the Southern California High School All-Star game and rushed for over 100 yards and two touchdowns,” Dallas said. “He’s a legit player coming in for us. He’s a lot like Steve (Valliere). That type of player, just with a little bit more quickness to him.” The tailback position is also wide open with the departure of two-time All-KCAC performer Preston McCorkle. However, a pair of returners in Dane McCoy (5-10, 220, Sr., Discovery Bay, Calif. / Los Medanos College (Calif.)) and Rodney Cooper (5-9, 190, So., Red Oak, Texas / Red Oak HS), who missed 2008 with injuries, will compete for a spot. Also looking to fit in will be Jake Winship (5-11, 225, Jr., Yuba City, Calif. / Yuba College (Calif.)), who was at Wesleyan last year, but redshirted the 2008 season. Dallas feels that Winship is another quality running back to come through the Kansas Wesleyan program, fitting the same model as Oscar Nero, Matt Leonard, Darell Grames and McCorkle. “We’ve been fortunate to have some great backs in our arsenal in the past years,” Dallas said. “And I think that Jake is just as good as or better than any of those top guys we have had. Rodney has a chance to be good for us, despite

Dave Dallas begins his 13th year at the helm of Kansas Wesleyan University Football, making him the longest continuously tenured football coach in the Kansas Conference. Since coming to Wesleyan to start the 1997 season, Dallas has racked up a 67-53 record with the Coyotes, good enough for third all-time in total coaching wins at KWU.

Dallas took over the reigns of the Ottawa University program, and spent eight years at the leadership of the Braves, as they went 42-35-1 during his tenure. In 1997, Dallas took over a struggling Kansas Wesleyan program that had gone 4-26 the previous three years before his arrival. In just four years, in 2001, Wesleyan captured its first KCAC title since 1982, and made the school’s first ever NAIA Post-Season appearance. Dallas is active in the American Football Coaches Association, as he is President of the NAIA-FCA for the upcoming season. In January 2007, Dallas was selected to represent the NAIA on the National Athletic Testing System (NATS) Board of Review at the AFCA Convention in San Antonio, Texas. NATS is a non-profit AFCA program and is a nationwide standardized athletic performance test that produces results that can be used to track and compare the players’ athletic ability and development. In many respects NATS is an athletic version of the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) for high school football players. Most importantly however, the NATS is a means of providing players, parents, coaches and school counselors important requirements, financial aid and athletic performance analysis and preparation. Dallas and his wife Kelly live in Salina, along with their four children Drew, Casey, Trey, and Molly.

2009 VOLLEYBALL SEASON OUTLOOK The Kansas Wesleyan Volleyball squad is off to a fresh start in 2009: new coach, new players, new arena, and new attitude. Coming off a 12-24 campaign last year, Wesleyan is ready to look upward and return to the top of the Kansas Conference, a place where the Coyotes were just two years ago. Among the many things new is head coach Fred Aubuchon, who replaces Rick Mischka. Mischka spent one season leading the Coyotes before taking a position as head men’s and women’s volleyball coach at Park University in Parkville, Missouri. Aubuchon came to Wesleyan in June, and is ready to take on the task of rebuilding the program into a winner, something that he is very familiar with. In 13 seasons of volleyball coaching, Aubuchon is 368-148, including a 216-72 record in eight years at the NAIA ranks after five years in the junior college ranks where he was 152-76. Wesleyan does return four players from last year’s team, but has to deal with loss of two-time All-KCAC and 2007 All-American Sarah Claborn to graduation. Claborn accounted for half of Wesleyan’s offense last year, averaging 4.51 kills per game last year. Returning from last year’s team are seniors Jennifer McConnell (6-1, MH, Sr., Regina, Saskatchewan/Mississippi Valley State) and Kathleen Thomas (5-7,OH, Sr., Gardner, Kan. / GardnerEdgerton HS), along with two sophomores in Jordyn Rahlf (5-9, MH, So., Kasson, Minn. / Kasson-Mantorville HS) and Megan Dowling (5-11, RS, So., Tribune, Kan. / Greeley County HS). “We have a strong nucleus of returning players,” coach Aubuchon said. “They will provide us with some experience and leadership on the floor this year.” Ten newcomers dot the roster for Wesleyan in 2009. Looking to make an impact is junior college transfer Stephanie Wilken (6-0, RS, Jr., Chanute, Kan. / Neosho County CC (Kan.)) from Neosho County Community College in Chanute. “We have a great balance of incoming talent,” Aubuchon said. “I feel that Stephanie Wilken will make an immediate impact, however our freshman class will see plenty of playing time as well.” Seven freshmen dot the roster for the Coyotes, including setters Ariana Odegard (5-8, S, Fr., Underwood, Minn. / Underwood HS) and Sydnie Abel (5-7, S, Fr., Lincoln, Neb. / Lincoln Southeast HS). Other freshmen include Shae Tuma (5-4, DS, Fr., Superior, Neb. / Superior HS), Abby Broxterman (5-8, RS, Fr., Home, Kan. / Marysville HS), Jenna Miller (5-2, DS, Fr., Salina, Kan. / Salina South HS), Faith Ramsey (5-10, OH, Fr., Wellington, Colo. / Highland HS) and Katie Fross (6-0, MH, Fr., Lone Tree, Colo. / Highlands Ranch HS). Despite all the changes for the Coyotes, Wesleyan was picked to finish sixth in the Kansas Conference in the preseason poll conducted by the coaches in August. “Heading into the season, sixth place is quite appropriate,” Aubuchon said. “However, I believe we have the talent to surpass the conference’s expectations.” Wesleyan will open the 2009 campaign with a pair of tournaments, beginning September 2 with a triangular at William Jewell College in Liberty, Mo. The Coyotes then head to Sioux Falls, S.D., for the USF Empire Bank Classic on September 4 and 5. Wesleyan opens the home portion of the schedule on September 9 against McPherson College at 7 p.m., inside Mabee Arena. It will be the first volleyball competition in the Arena for the Coyotes, who played the 2008 season in Muir Gymnasium while the finishing touches were put on Mabee.

VOLLEYBALL COACHING STAFF FRED AUBUCHON HEAD COACH Fred Aubuchon has been the Head Coach of Kansas Wesleyan Volleyball since 2009. Aubuchon replaced Rick Mischka, who left KWU after one season, to take a position as head men’s n’s and women’s volleyball coach at Park University in Parkville, Missouri. Aubuchon comes to Kansas Wesleyan after spending five-plus seasons at Hastings College in Hastings, astings, Nebraska. While at Hastings, Aubuchon amassed an impressive 173-46 record (.789 win pct.). Under nder his direction, Hastings never finished worse than sixth in the Great Plains Athletic Conference standings. In 2003, Aubuchon’s first season, the Broncos were the No.6 seed. In 2006, Aubuchon’s Hastings squad won the GPAC Regular Season Championship, and advanced to the NAIA National Championships, advancing past Pool Play into the National Championship First Round. Before Hastings, Aubuchon spent two years at Peru State College (Neb.), where he amassed a 43-26 record. While at Peru State, he began the Bobcats Men’s Volleyball Program. In seven-plus seasons at the NAIA level , Aubuchon has a 216-72 overall record (.750 win pct.). However, more important than wins, his teams also excelled in the classroom. Aubuchon’s teams have achieved unprecedented academic success by leading the NAIA in four out of seven years with having the highest GPA in the nation, including two years when teams led all levels of NCAA Women’s Volleyball as well. He has had an astonishing 40 NAIA Scholar-Athletes in just seven years. Before Peru State, Aubuchon spent five years at Owens Community College (Ohio), where he compiled a 152-76 record. He twice won the OCCAC (Ohio Community College Athletic Conference) Championship, and made five straight appearances in the NJCAA Division III Women’s Volleyball Championships. He set a school record of 46 wins in 2000. Aubuchon received a Bachelor of Applied Arts degree in Community Recreation from Central Michigan University in 1994, and a Master of Education degree from the University of Toledo in 1996. “Kansas Wesleyan has taken many strides to build winning programs in every sport, and that is a tradition I hope to continue,” Aubuchon said. Aubuchon is a native of Kalamazoo, Mich., and is married to Sabrina Aubuchon and has one daughter, Emmaly.

2009 WOMEN’S AND MEN’S SOCCER SEASON OUTLOOK After his second season, Kansas Wesleyan Head Coach Mike Dibbini coined term “reloading” as opposed to rebuilding to describe the process of reorganizing the teams after the graduation loss of several key players. Unlike seasons past, the Coyotes face a high turnover of high impact players such as Juan Mundo, Mario Rodriguez, and Robert Carrillo from the men’s side; and Marisa Brownell, Eliana Parada, and Kat Benton on the women’s side. Despite all those losses, Dibbini has again reloaded, adding some key elements and depth to a strong returning group. The Coyotes look to be, once again, the class of the KCAC. On the coaching staff, the additions of Diana (Deedee) Sanguinetti , Mike Padilla, and keeper trainer Doug Seigle will be huge for the Coyotes in 2009. Dibbini sought out some of the top coaching talent available for the head assistant coach position. Coach Sanguinetti has been a player at the highest levels, starting for NCAA Division I Pepperdine University, and being named All Big-West at Long Beach State after playing at a nationally ranked level with her club teams. She has had stints on staff with various High School and Club programs as well as an assistant with Cal State Northridge. She also brings a strong strength and conditioning background as manager and athlete recruiter for Nike Velocity Sports. “We are very excited to have her onboard,” Dibbini said of Sanguinetti. Mike Padilla is very familiar with KWU Soccer and its brand. He shares his knowledge and expertise of the game, developed from coaching local clubs and high schools. Seigle comes in by way of Montana State-Billings. “Doug will allow the KWU goalkeepers to be sharper daily and structured throughout the season,” Dibbini said. The women’s team sees the passing of an era, losing a group of women who led the Coyotes from being not only a conference powerhouse, but to a prominent force at the National level. That group helped lead Wesleyan to the national tournament each of the last two seasons. To any other coach, the task of filling those spots would be daunting, but for Coach Dibbini, it’s simply another year, another championship bound team. The Coyotes will be going for their fourth consecutive KCAC Championship in 2009, winning the last three with a combined 27-0 record. The Coyotes have also won all four KCAC Tournament Titles under Dibbini’s direction and will look to make it an unprecedented fifth straight this fall. With the development of last year’s class, driven by top notch freshmen and a corps of junior college transfers, the Coyotes have a very strong returning group. The returners will be led by perennial All-American Heather Muilenburg (F, Sr., 5-4, Salina, Kan. / Salina Central HS), and last year’s freshman phenoms Hannah Kern (MF, So., 5-8, Wichita, Kan. / Maiza HS) and Rachelle Medina (MF/DEF, So., 5-1, Ventura, Calif. / St. Bonaventure HS). The Coyotes also look toward a mix of developing explosiveness in Kyra Helin (MF/F, So., 5-5, Anchorage, Alaska / West Anchorage HS), and Imaan Issa (F, So., 5-6, Arcadia, Calif. / University of California-Riverside). The incoming class is again one of the best in the KCAC. The class are led by Junior College National Player of the Year Corina Villegas (F/MF, Jr., 5-3, Nuevo, Calif. / Cerritos College (Calif.)) and her junior college teammate Elba Menjivar (F/MF, Jr., 4-11, Panorama City, Calif. / Cerritos College (Calif.)). Joining them will be midfielders Tatiana Dos Santos (MF, Jr., 5-3, Orange, Calif. / Santiago Canyon College (Calif.)) and Paulina Gonzalez (MF, Jr., 5-4, Long Beach, Calif. / Rio Hondo College (Calif.)). With the transfer class addressing depth, the freshman class became the place to search for specific positions. Newcomers Leanne Brown (DEF, Fr., 5-6, Palmdale, Calif. / Highland HS), Hiliary Stroup (DEF/MF, Fr., 5-7, Running Springs, Calif. / Rim of the World HS) and Brittany Corcoran (DEF, Fr., 5-7, Long Beach, Calif. / St. Joseph HS) will bulk up the defense, which was the hardest hit by graduation losses. Makaila Estrella (MF/DEF, Fr., 5-0, Agua Dulce, Calif. / Vasquez HS), Jennifer Mahjoub (MF, Fr., 5-7, Laguna Niguel, Calif. / Mission Viejo HS) and Ameenah Issa (MF/F, Fr., 5-4, Arcadia, Calif. / Alverno HS) join a loaded group at midfield, but all have the skill set and athleticism to be able to make an impact right away. After some off-season injuries set back the keeper corps, the addition of Karina Albarran (GK, Fr., 5-5, Lancaster, Calif. / Paraclete HS) and Erin Gilmour (GK, Fr., 5-5, Temecula, Calif. / Chaparral HS) are welcome faces in early season sessions for the Coyotes. “Both Karina and Erin represent some of the most athletic keepers ever to sign with KWU,” Dibbini said. “Both have exceptional field skills which makes them versatile and valuable assets.” Along with returning senior Stephanie Cottam (GK, Sr., 5-4, Irvine, Calif. / Santiago Canyon College (Calif.)) and Kjerstin Stupey (GK, So., 5-7, Everett, Wash. / Kamiak HS), the keeper corps seems in the best shape of all positions, ready to help KWU at another run at the KCAC Title and a deep run into post-season play. Just one nationally ranked team appears on the KWU Women’s Soccer schedule in 2009, after the Coyotes faced five teams that were ranked throughout the year during 2008. Just like the men, the Women’s Soccer team also opens the 2009 season at home against Bacone College. The Coyotes will then head to Salt Lake City for games against Great Falls and Westminster before returning home on September 9 against Concordia University (Neb.). Wesleyan will then head to St. Louis to take on Missouri Baptist on September 12 and then Liberty, Mo., to face William Jewell (Mo.) on September 16.

2009 WOMEN’S AND MEN’S SOCCER SEASON OUTLOOK (continued...) Last year’s men’s team came out of nowhere, winning the KCAC title and advancing to the Tournament Championship. This was in no small part to the unexpected development of underclassmen. Despite the strong group of returning players, Wesleyan has to deal with the loss of scoring power house Mario Rodriguez, team leader Gabe Romo, defensive brick wall Daniel Hill and Midfielder Abe Moran; along with KCAC Defensive Player of the Year Juan Mundo and KCAC Goalkeeper of the Year Robert Carrillo, Dibbini was faced with some large shoes to fill. The Coyotes are led by KCAC Offensive Player of the Year Jose Garay (MF/F, Sr., 5-10, 160, Palmdale, Calif. / Palmdale HS), who led the KCAC in points per game and goals per game last season. Joining him will be the emerging talents of Derek Dodrill (MF/DEF, Jr., 5-10, 140, Rio Rancho, N.M. / Rio Rancho HS), Anthony Russo (F, Jr., 5-9, 180, Mesa, Ariz. / Red Mountain HS) and Jonathan McCormick (MF, Sr., 6-1, 145, Simi Valley, Calif. / Moorpark College (Calif.)), who was the KCAC Newcomer of the Year in 2008. “All are players who were instrumental in last season’s successful campaign,” Dibbini said. “They should key for us again in 2009.” Other key returners are Robert Hector (MF, Sr., 6-1, 145, Simi Valley, Calif. / Moorpark College (Calif.)), Arturo Guizar (F/MF, Sr., 5-10, 175, Bellflower, Calif. / Long Beach City College (Calif.)), Nathan Taylor (MF/F, Sr., 5-11, 175, Overland Park, Kan. / Johnson County CC (Kan.)), Hector Quezada (DEF/MF, Sr., 6-0, 160, Long Beach, Calif. / Cerritos College (Calif.)) and Marlon Beach (DEF, Sr., 6-0, 175, Fort Worth, Texas / Johnson County CC (Kan.)). Returning in goal for the Coyotes is sophomore Kyle Martin (GK, So., 5-8, 150, Arcadia, Calif. / Arcadia HS), who saw some action last year behind Carrillo. Encouraged by such a strong returning class, Coach Dibbini scored big out on the recruiting trails. Headlining the list are transfer players David Hernandez (MF, Jr., 5-10, 150, Inglewood, Calif. / LA Harbor College (Calif.)), Edgar Espinoza (DEF, Jr., 6-0, 175, Los Angeles, Calif. / El Camino College (Calif.)), and Jesus Ochoa (DEF/MF, Jr., 5-11, 170, Paramount, Calif. / Cerritos College (Calif.)). “With those players coming in, we are getting a lot of help defensively and in the middle of the field,” Dibbini said. In addition, Jeremy Mireles (MF, So., 5-9, 155, Hesperia, Calif. / Victor Valley College (Calif.)) is a big, strong midfielder who will have an immediately. Three newcomers, two transfers and a freshman, join Martin between the pipes and with the addition of a keeper trainer to the staff, the keepers will be stronger than ever. There is some tremendous talent coming in with the freshman class as well. Victor Mercado (MF, So., 5-9, 150, Sherman Oaks, Calif. / Crespi Carmelite HS), Jose Oseguera (DEF/MF, Fr., 5-7, 165, Oxnard, Calif. / Pacifica HS), Zach Cuzzocreo (MF/F, Fr., 6-2, 200, Mesa, Ariz. / Hamilton HS), and Zach Ludwig (DEF, Fr., 5-9, 160, Phoenix, Ariz. / Washington HS) all look to compete for a spot in the lineup right away. While not the brutal non-conference slate of a year ago, the Coyote Men’s Soccer team will play another stiff non-conference schedule, before opening KCAC play on October 3. After opening the year against Bacone, the Coyotes will head to Salt Lake City on September 5 and 6, taking on Great Falls (Mont.) and Westminster College (Utah). Two of the Coyotes’ opponents finished the season ranked in the NAIA Top 25, as Southern Nazarene finished then ranked 17th and Graceland ranked 22nd, and Southern Nazarene made an appearance in the NAIA National Championships in 2008. After the trip to Utah, Wesleyan will take on Concordia University (Neb.) on September 9, followed by a trip to St. Louis to take on Missouri Baptist on September 12. Wesleyan then embarks on a three-match road trip beginning with William Jewell on September 16 followed by the two matches against Graceland and Southern Nazarene. Wesleyan will get a special treat on September 19 against Graceland, as the two teams will meet at CommunityAmerica Ballpark, the home of the Kansas City Wizards, at 3 p.m., preceding the Wizards’ game with FC Dallas that evening. After the Southern Nazarene game on September 22, the Coyotes will wrap up the non-conference portion of the schedule on September 26 at home against Morningside College (Iowa). Wesleyan then begins the KCAC schedule on October 3, which is Homecoming for the Coyotes against Sterling College at Noon. The Coyotes face Bethel on October 7 and McPherson on October 10, both on the road, before an October 14 home match against Friends. The Coyotes head to Saint Mary on October 17, before playing three of its last four games at home starting October 21 against Ottawa. The Coyotes play Bethany on October 25, head to Tabor on October 28, and wrap up the regular season on Halloween at home against Southwestern.

CROSS COUNTRY SEASON OUTLOOK Kansas Wesleyan Cross Country heads into the 2009 season in pursuit of the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference championships. Third year coach Jeff Barker feels he has assembled the tools necessary for the Coyotes to make a run, literally, at the title and unseat perennial power Southwestern from the top of the ranks. “It’s a major goal to win conference for both Men and Women,” Barker said. “We must stay healthy and work together. We are training to run our best in November.” The women do have to deal with the loss of three-time National Championships qualifier Sarah Williams, but the Coyotes should be solid despite her loss. Williams won the KCAC Individual Championship in 2008 and then earned NAIA All-American honors at the NAIA National Championships. Filling the void of Williams’ loss will be returners Shanda Anderson (Sr., Marquette, Kan. / Butler CC (Kan.)) and Kara Walker (Sr., Salina, Kan. / Beloit HS). Both also qualified for the National Championships last season and return that valuable experience for the Coyotes this year. Barker also feels that the addition of Cherise Price (Jr., Tucson, Ariz. / Pima CC (Ariz.)) and local product Crystal Stegman (Jr., Salina, Kan. / Butler CC (Kan.)) should give KWU some of the top runners in the KCAC in 2009. “With the addition of Cherise and Crystal, we will have the best Top Four runners in the conference,” Barker said. Questions still remain in the number five spot, but Stacey Lastra (Sr., Brea, Calif. / Mt. San Antonio College (Calif.)) and Julina White (Jr., Hereford, Colo. / American River College (Calif.)) will compete for the spot according to Barker. “The only question for us will be in the number five spot,” he said. “We are hoping for Stacey and Julina to fill the void and help lead us to a conference title and national championship berth.” The men’s team looks to be one of the best ever assembled at Kansas Wesleyan. Leading the way will be top returners Jeremy Davies (Sr., Portage, Ind. / Southern Indiana), Paul Minneman (Sr., Solomon, Kan. / Solomon HS) and Mike Rascon (Sr., Tucson, Ariz., / Pima CC (Ariz.)). Davies and Minneman were National Qualifiers last year. Add to the mix newcomers Ernie Cruz, Jr. (Jr., Tucson, Ariz. / Pima CC (Ariz.)), Nathan Mesta (So., Tucson, Ariz. / Morgan State (Md.)), Kyle Sieve (Fr., Topeka, Kan. / Seaman HS), Jordan Evans (Fr., Green, Kan. / Clay Center Community HS) and Peter Madrigal (Sr., Tucson, Ariz. / Pima CC (Ariz.)), the Coyotes will give Southwestern a run for its money and look for a NAIA National Championship berth in November. “This should be one of the best teams ever assembled at Kansas Wesleyan,” Barker said. “With top recruits Ernie Cruz, Jr., and Nathan Mesta, we have enough strength and depth to win the conference and qualify for NAIA National Championships. Peter Madrigal, who transferred in last spring, will be one of our leaders on and off the course. If all goes well and we stay healthy come November we can be one of the top teams in the country.”

CROSS COUNTRY COACHING STAFF HEAD COACH JEFF BARKER Jeff Barker enters his third year as cross country coach at Kansas Wesleyan University. In his two years at Kansas Wesleyan, Barker has wokred hard to build the cross coutnry teams into contenders not only in the KCAC but at a national level as well. In 2007, his first season, Barker qualified two individuals to run at the NAIA National Championships and in 2008, five individuals went to the big show, including Sarah Williams, who earned NAIA All-American honors by finishing 26th in the race. Williams also won the KCAC Championship Meet. Barker came to Kansas Wesleyan from Calumet College at St. Joseph (Ind.), where he was most recently the head distance track coach and assistant cross country coach. He also held a similar concurrent position at Andrean High School in Merrillville, Indiana. Before being named head distance coach and assistant cross country coach at Calumet, Barker was named the program’s first head cross country coach in June, 2005. By August of that year, he had recruited 10 student-athletes, including a national qualifier for the NAIA Championships that season. Barker earned degrees in Criminal Justice and Human Service and Social Work from Saint Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, Ind., after excelling at Bishop Noll Institute High School. At Saint Joseph’s, he was named a team captain and recruiting leader in the 2002-2003 season. At Bishop Noll Institute, he was named the 1998-99 Athlete of the Year, while earning several individual honors, including Honorable Mention AllState honors in 1998, and he was the LAC Conference Champion in 1998, setting a course record of 15:50 for the 5K race. He went on to earn LAC Champion honors in the 3200m and was the IHSAA Sectional Champion in the 3200m. Barker is committed to building his programs based on the recent success in both cross country and track at KWU. “One of my favorite quotes is ‘If what we did last year still looks good this year, then are we really doing what it takes to get better?’. We are going to work very hard to develop a program that cross country/track athletes want to be a part of daily. Once the program has purpose, the passion will grow, and the athletes will love being a part of something truly special.” Barker is engaged to Alanna Moore, and the couple plan to marry in early January, 2010.
