MIZZOU

2011 Season Preview The Tigers enter 2011 ranked No. 7 in the country according to the USA Today/NFCA Coaches Poll and come in at ninth in the ESPN.com/USA Softball rankings. Missouri opens their season on Friday, Feb. 18 with a doubleheader against Fresno State and No. 12 California at the San Diego Classic I. Throughout the rest of the weekend they’ll take on No. 10/11 Washington, San Diego State and Sacramento State. Last year, Mizzou advanced to their second straight Women’s College World Series and finished the year with a school record 51 wins. Missouri went 3-0 in the NCAA Regional round and swept Oregon in two games in the NCAA Super Regionals, both of which were held in Columbia, Mo. The Tigers return 17 of their 22 players from last year, including three of their four pitchers and eight of their nine starting hitters. Catcher In 2010, the Tigers mostly went to battle with a platoon behind the plate, with Megan Christopher and Catherine Lee seeing most of the action. They’ll do the same this year, however, Lisa Simmons figures to see quite a bit of time back there, along with Lee. Simmons started 16 games last year and played in 45 of the team’s 64 contests, most of those coming in the outfield. She batted .267, hit a couple of home runs and got on base at a .441 clip while posting a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage. For Simmons, consistently being behind the plate this year should prove to be beneficial for her. “With the repetitions and the games we’ve given her behind the plate she looks like she’s been doing it her whole life,” said head coach Ehren Earleywine. “Lisa’s vocal and she’s smart, so it’s really been nice having her back there. I asked Chelsea (Thomas) the other day, ‘how do you like throwing to her?’ and she said ‘I love it. She frames the ball well, she blocks the ball well.’” Lee, who will also find time at first base, figures to give Simmons some time off behind the plate, and according to Earleywine it will be too tough to keep her bat out of the lineup. “It’s going to be nearly impossible to keep Cat’s bat out of the lineup the way she’s been hitting it this year,” said Earleywine. “She kind of got back to her stance at Georgia State, which fundamentally-speaking isn’t all that sound, but it works for her, and she’s pulverizing the ball right now.” Last season, Lee posted a batting average/ on base percentage/ slugging percentage line of .246/.384/.446 to go along with six home runs, eight doubles and 28 runs batted in. One of her biggest strengths at the plate is her ability to draw walks. Last year, she took 30 base on balls, the second most on the team and the seventh most in a single season at Missouri. Lee’s catching counterpart last year, Megan Christopher, suffered an

injury in the offseason and will redshirt this year, giving the Tigers some much needed experience behind the plate as this year’s squad graduates eight players, including both Lee and Simmons. First Base First base will probably be a platoon position for the Tigers this season, as Lee, Lindsey Muller and Marla Schweisberger all figure to find time on the right corner of the infield. “Those kids are going to be fighting it out,” said Earleywine. “One of them can play DP (designated player) and one can play first base. Now the thing that we’ve also thrown into the mix is Marla in left, and obviously Cat can catch, so that just gives you a lot of options. We’re going to mix-and-match for a little bit. Muller, a sophomore, battled through a shoulder injury for much of last season, as she picked up just 84 at bats in 42 games played. In those 84 at bats, Muller posted a line of .262/.392/.476 with four home runs and 21 runs batted in. Of her 22 hits, 10 were of the extra base variety, as she picked up six doubles to go with her four long balls. “Before last year, I said the X-Factor for the season was Ashley Fleming,” stated Earleywine. “Fleming had a good year and we did pretty well. This year, it’s Muller. If Muller mashes, then you’ve got another one of those boppers. She could change the whole complexion of our lineup. She’s a kid that can hit double digit Sophomore Lindsey Muller home runs for us.” Also expected to find time at first will be Schweisberger, one of the nine seniors on the team. A 2009 Second Team All-American, Schweisberger hit nine home runs, nine doubles and drove home 36 RBI last year while putting up a line of.282/.342/.535. The righty gives the Tigers a lot of options, as she could find herself at first, in left or at designated player. Earleywine projects her to bat in the lower third of the lineup, and that her experience will prove to majorly benefit the team. “I think if you can put a kid like that with four years of experience in your seven or eight spot, it says something about your lineup. That’s not a knock against Marla, I think it says something about the rest of your team when you can put a kid with four years of experience, was an All-American and has been to two World Series in the seventh or eighth spot in the lineup. That’s something special.” Second Base With the departure of senior Gina Schneider, the lone starter in the lineup who was lost to graduation, the Tigers have a hole to fill at second base. Three have risen to the challenge in senior Abby Vock, sophomore Princess Krebs and freshman Maddison Ruggeberg, as all figure to compete for time at the position this year. Vock’s strength is her glove, as she’s widely considered the best defensive

infielder on the team and has been for quite some time. Last season, she committed just one error in 99 chances. “I think what we’re going to do is start off with Abby playing second base,” said Earleywine. “If she’s able to show she is someone that can give us good at bats, defensively there is no one better. But if her hitting doesn’t pan out the way she wants it to and the way we want it to, then we have options.”

Senior Abby Vock

One of those options will be Krebs, who spent her freshman season as a backup shortstop and one of the first pinch run options off the bench. Between second base and left field, her role will certainly be expanded in 2011.

“Princess is probably the number two option right now, and in addition to that she’s probably a very likely candidate to start in left field,” said Earleywine. “For anyone that knows me, I’m trying to get my nine best bats in the lineup any way I can. We had Krebs sitting there behind JJ (Jenna Marston), basically just dying as a backup shortstop and we played these intersquads and she’d get three hits, two hits, couple walks, hit a bomb and we’re like ‘wait a minute, we got to start moving this kid around a little bit.’” Ruggeberg, a freshman, remains the third option at the position, though Earleywine says that he thinks he’ll play the matchup game at times to get all three of the options some experience at second. “Those three kids will all get opportunities, and my job is to figure out what opportunities are best suited for them. Maddison is a good high-ball hitter so I’ve got to try to match her up with that. Abby’s a better low-ball hitter and good bunter, and “P” (Princess) is more of a grip-and-rip, no think, just hit, and she hits good pitchers because of that. So I’m just going to try and match those kids up and whichever one is more successful at what they do by the time I get to conference play I’ll probably try to lean on them a bit more often.” Shortstop The first locked up position for the Tigers comes at shortstop, where 2010 First Team All-Big 12 selection Jenna Marston holds down the fort. Last season, the freshman put up a line .366/.450/.543 with five home runs, 15 stolen bases, 22 walks and team-highs in doubles (16) and runs batted in (52). She hit an astonishing .473 in Big 12 play, the tops in the league. From the day she’s stepped on the field, Earleywine’s touted that she’ll be a double-digit home run player as her career progresses, much to the surprise of others, and he thinks she’ll take that step forward this season. “I think she’ll hit double digits this year,” said Earleywine. “I think eventually she’s going to be a 15-18 home run kid and people

are always like, ‘really, JJ?’ But JJ’s bigger than people think, and she’s strong, and she’s got a nice stroke. Once she gets out in front and pulls the ball, she’s going to hit some bombs.” Spending much of the offseason working on pulling the ball a bit more, Marston also spent a significant amount of time trying to improve her defense, which was her one glaring weakness from her freshman campaign. She’d often flash the leather and make some incredible plays due to her range and arm strength, but found herself having trouble with the routine ground ball. “She’s worked on it hard, and there’s a big, big difference from last year,” claimed Earleywine. “I think on the routine ball what she had been doing was sitting back initially, and then as the ball got in its transition from the plate to her she would know that she had sat back too much and would then hit the panic button and overcharge balls and that made her hard-handed running up into balls. What we’re doing now is reversing that, so that ball is hit, she’s aggressive out of the chute, and then she sets up softly. This spring, she’s unrecognizable in making the routine play compared to last year.” Third Base Another fixture for Missouri for the second straight year will be Nicole Hudson, who led the team in home runs last season with 10. Her 10 bombs made her the first true freshman since Jen Bruck in 2005 to hit double digit home runs in a season. On top of that, she posted a line of .323/.446/.602, as she also clubbed 15 doubles. She plated 41 base runners, and posted an impressive walk-tostrikeout ratio of 31:19. This year, Earleywine says she’s in the best shape he’s ever seen her, and that’s only going to improve her overall game this year. At the end of last year, the team flirted with the idea of moving her to one of the corner Sophomore Nicole Hudson outfield spots, but those plans have changed. “She came back this fall in the best shape I’ve ever seen her, and came back in Christmas break even better than that,” said Earleywine. “Because of that, her lateral movement has gotten better, her ability to cover bunts has gotten better and I think if everything stays the same she should not only be able to play third base but do a significantly better job this year than she did last year at that position.” Her power, plus her addition of speed and quickness on both defense and at the plate gives Earleywine a lot of options on where to hit her in the lineup. With her ability to read the strike zone, along with her being a tough batter to strike out, she could find herself anywhere between second in the lineup and fifth.” “Typical power hitters are feast or feminine, not a lot of walks. With her ability to see the strike zone it almost makes her a viable option for the two-hole, because you want someone there who will see pitches, draw walks, that kind of thing. But then you wonder, ‘does this kid have too much power to be sitting in the two-hole? Should she be three-through-five?’ She’s right on the cusp.” Left Field There’s one easy way to describe the battle brewing in left field: chaos. With Simmons moving to catcher, and Schneider, who played some outfield last season, graduating, the Tigers currently have six different players battling

MIZZOU for the position. Earleywine said simply, “it’s committee right now.” With over 60 games, these six players will have plenty of time to show why they deserve to get the nod at the position and in the lineup. “Krebs, Schweisberger, (Kathryn) Poet, (Shana) White, (Alaina) Burkhart and (Taylor) Duplechain – all those people are fighting for left field,” said Earleywine. “I think Krebs, Schweisberger and Poet right now are going to do the majority of the rotation through there.” Poet has been in the rotation for the past few years, and Earleywine thinks she just a few things away from running away with the spot. Last year she Senior Kathryn Poet struggled at the plate after missing the first month or so with injury, forcing Earleywine to look at other options. If she becomes a little more confident out in the field and works on pulling the ball a bit more – Earleywine says she’s got a little pop when she does – she’ll be the left fielder. Until then, however, it’s wide open, and with other options someone always has a chance to step up. The team had high expectations for Duplechain, a freshman, but she’s still nursing an injury suffered in the fall and will be out another month or so. White, a senior, brings four years of experience and success to the club and will be the Tigers’ top pinch running option. Burkhart is a senior transfer who played two years of junior college ball, where she had big time success, before playing at Missouri State last season. Her ability to hit the low ball could help find her a spot in the lineup against some drop ball pitchers. Center Field Center field for Missouri will be occupied by the same person who has occupied it in each of the last three seasons, and that’s two-time All-American Rhea Taylor. Taylor earned her second career All-American honor last season after completely rewriting the Missouri record books. She set a new school record with a .452 batting average, tied her own runs scored record with 64, had the second most hits ever with 85, had a .718 slugging percentage – seventh best at Mizzou, ran out eight triples – tied for eighth most in a year and swiped 48 bases, the second most in a season. On top of that, she set new career records in stolen bases with 141 and runs scored at 182. She’s just 12 stolen bases shy of breaking the Big 12 Conference all-time record, and she even blasted eight home runs last year. After spending much of offseason working on her drag bunting ability – probably the only part of her offensive game that would have been considered weak last year – Taylor’s improvement there makes things even tougher on opposing teams. With her improved drag bunting, it’s not out of the realm of possibility for her to flirt with a .500 batting average this season. “I think it’s possible, it might be Senior Rhea Taylor a longshot, but there’s a chance,” Three Straight Regional Titles

said Earleywine. “Her drag bunting now may be her best tool – it’s gone to another level.” Taylor might have shocked some people last year while blasting eight home runs, but Earleywine says it’s no surprise to him. She’s someone who has the ability to hit more than 15 home runs a season, but with all the tools that she has, it’s probably unlikely. “I think she’s a seven to 12 home run kid, somewhere in there,” stated Earleywine. “She has so many other tools where she doesn’t need to use her power all the time; when she swings away it’s situational. If she batted every single at bat and never slapped or bunted she’d probably hit 15 home runs. There’s no comparison, by far, she’s the strongest kid on our team.” Right Field Ashley Fleming has this corner outfield spot locked up after a breakout sophomore campaign that saw her put up a line of .363/.473/.623 with nine home runs and 44 driven in. She roped 11 doubles, posted a walkto-strikeout ratio of 27:18 and swiped 15 bags in 18 attempts. On April 26, she was named National Player of the Week by USA Softball after going 10for-13 with three doubles, two home runs, eight runs batted in, seven runs scored, and four walks while also swiping three bags in as many attempts in the previous week. Out of all the offensive players who deservedly got a lot of fanfare – Taylor, Hudson, MarstonSophomore Ashley Fleming – Fleming was arguably the team’s best offensive weapon that no one talked about. As for this year, both Earleywine and volunteer assistant coach Phil Bradley think the sky is the limit for Fleming. “Today she’s our best hitter on the team – she’s our three hitter,” Earleywine said. “As good as she was last year - the second half of the season she especially hit really well – she’s been that way since the beginning of the fall. Coach Bradley always says to me, partially joking but partially serious, ‘Player of the Year.’ She just hits moonshots to all fields.” Pitching Staff While the season-ending injury to Chelsea Thomas was devastating last year, looking ahead to this year, it might turn out to have been a blessing in disguise. With Kristin Nottelmann having to step into the No. 1 pitcher role – and have great success doing so – the Tigers will put two pitchers in the circle who have No. 1 starter experience and Women’s College World Series experience. “They should be each other’s best friend,” said Earleywine. “I told them both, ‘you aren’t one and two, you’re 1a and 1b.’” Arguably the hardest throwing pitcher the country, Thomas went in to last season with an improved repertoire. With a rise ball, drop ball and improved changeup, there aren’t too many pitchers who have played this game who can throw all three pitches and throw 70 miles per hour on top of it. “If she does all year what she can do when she’s healthy, she’ll be the most notable pitcher in the country. I really believe that,” Earleywine said. “I don’t think anyone can pitch like her. As a matter of fact, I don’t think softball has seen a pitcher like her. No one throws as hard as she throws with up, down and change. Cat Osterman has up, down and change but Cat Osterman throws in the low 60’s. Jennie Finch throws 67-68-69 miles per hour, but she

doesn’t have those three pitches. Danielle Lawrie throws really hard, but doesn’t have the down ball that Chelsea has. You can go right down the line – Michelle Smith, Lisa Fernandez, you can go all of them – they have components of what she does, but none have the velocity, the spin or the three pitches. I think she could be the best ever – if she stays healthy.”

Rest of the Squad With the Tigers returning 17 of last season’s 22 players, they bring back a lot of depth and a lot of experience. Last season they used most of their bench, constantly rotating people in to pinch hit, pinch run or substitute in defensively. Earleywine feels that this year’s team will do more of the same, and that all 22 players will have a role and an impact.

Before Thomas went down with an injury in late March, she was already living up to the hype. The Pleasantville, Iowa, native had put up a record of 12-1 with a 1.72 ERA and had already beaten the likes of Alabama, Arizona and Michigan. She struck out 123 batters and walked only 24, and had already thrown two no-hitters. After last season, the staff realizes they Redshirt sophomore Chelsea Thomas need to be extra cautious with both Thomas and Nottelmann.

Because of the team’s depth and experience, Earleywine says he doesn’t feel the need to rush the freshmen into tough game situations like he had to last year with Marston and Hudson. His goal is to ease them in to ideal spots instead of “throwing them into the fire.”

“I don’t think there’s anybody on our team right now that won’t have some sort of contribution – whether it’s pinch running, defensive innings, pinch hits, something,” said Earleywine. “I don’t think there is anyone on our team who doesn’t have something that we can’t use at some point over the course of the weekend.”

“We’re going to throw them out there when it looks good for them. We won’t toss them into the fire against Cal or Washington, but we’re going to slowly put them in in comfortable spots to ease them into it a bit. This is the first time since I’ve been here that we haven’t needed to count on any freshmen going into the season, and that’s a comfortable feeling when you can let those kids develop at their own pace.”

“Once you get into conference play you have to go with the hot hand and I think we’ll have a good idea of what Chelsea can and cannot do in terms of her stamina and in terms of her pain tolerance,” Earleywine stated. “Right now she feels no pain, but she’s fatigued on that second day. If that fatigue continues, we’re not going to throw her on day two because fatigue leads to injuries. The first 30 or 40 games are going to be very telling for us in how we pitch those kids in the second half of the season.” But as Earleywine said, if Thomas can’t go, then the experience and confidence that Nottelmann gained from last season will play a huge role for this squad. Last year, Nottelmann went 24-9 with a 2.09 ERA. She struck out 165 batters in 194 innings and limited hitters to a .215 average. However, Nottelmann truly shined in the postseason, where she went 5-2 with a 1.47 ERA, striking out 30 and walking just seven in 43 innings pitched. “I think the success she had last year helped her and now she knows that she can compete against good teams, she can beat them, she can compete in the World Series,” said Earleywine. She had did all that success with a stress fracture in her hand that no one on the team knew about, due to an adjustment with her rise ball grip. Earleywine says they’ve modified the grip again, and he believes that she’ll be just as effective as she was last postseason while also avoiding injury. “We’ve taken her pinky off the ball. That was the main thing – it used to be on the ball so heavy that it was killing her ability to snap the ball. We can do the same thing by doing this and her rise ball is as good or better than it was at the end of last year with zero pain.” After Thomas and Nottelmann, the Tigers have two other options in Lindsey Muller and Lisa Simmons – both of which collected some innings last year. Muller had 15 appearances and posted a 1.75 earned run average, but her shoulder injury limited her innings later in the season. Earleywine doesn’t expect dominating performances from these two at this point, but has made it clear to them that their main goal should be to keep the Tiger offense in the game. “The games that those kids are going to be throwing are going to be games that we don’t need to win anyways,” Earleywine said. “What I’ve told them is ‘when I give you the ball, first of all, be ready. It cannot be a surprise. You will pitch because we’re going to keep Chelsea and Kristin healthy. The second thing I told them is that we aren’t expecting them to throw a shutout. You don’t have to feel that burden. What we do expect from you is to give us a chance. Keep it under five runs, because we can score more than five runs.” 19 All-Americans

Schedule The Tigers will play eight teams ranked in the preseason top-25 while competing in five tournaments over the course of the year, two of which are at home. They open in San Diego, Calif., with Fresno State, Cal, Washington, San Diego State and Sacramento State, and then head to Tampa, Fla., where they’ll face Temple, Illinois State, Alabama, USF and Western Michigan. Plenty of tough competition there, but Earleywine feels that the schedule is a bit easier than last year, which was his intention when making it. “This is a tough schedule, but last year’s was tougher,” claimed Earleywine. “I did that on purpose last year so we would be ready – I knew Hudson and Marston needed to get ready so I was willing to take some on the chin even though we ended up winning a bunch of those games. Last year we faced so many good pitchers early that a lot of our hitters spent the rest of the year trying to work themselves out of that stupor. I think with this year’s schedule some of our kids can get some quality at bats and can walk away from a weekend going ‘ok, my average is intact, my ego is intact, I can go into next weekend relaxed instead of having to press.’” The Tigers will spend most of the month of March in the state of Missouri, beginning with their home opener against Drake on March 2. They head to the Missouri Breast Cancer Awareness Tournament in St. Louis that weekend where they’ll take on SEMO, SLU, Missouri State and UMKC. From there, they play 11 straight at University Field, going up against Southern Illinois, Arkansas, Illinois State, Illinois, North Dakota State, Western Michigan and Minnesota. Earleywine hopes to use a lot of those early midweek games as experience builders for a lot of the younger players. “We’re going to start using Wednesday’s to start using a lot of kids that are on the bench usually so that when it comes to the weekend, and you need a pinch runner or a pinch hitter, or need someone to come in and play a little defense, you’ve gotten to see how those kids handle game situations on Wednesdays,” said Earleywine. At the end of March, the Tigers head into conference play. Missouri will play host to Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Texas and Iowa State while traveling to Kansas, Texas Tech, Baylor, Nebraska and Oklahoma State. The regular conference season plays an even bigger role this year with there being no more Big 12 tournament at the end of the season. “What that does is that it moves our conference season back into that weekend [before postseason starts], and that gives you another weekend on the frontend for another tournament which allows these kids another experience. ‘Oh we got to go here. Oh we got to play that team.’ I think that’s what college ball is about – the experience of it all,” stated Earleywine.

Head Coach EHREN EARLEYWINE Fifth Season at Missouri (188-66) | Eighth Season Overall (334-121) 2007 Big 12 Coach of the Year | 2009 & 2010 Midwest Region Staff of the Year In just four seasons, Tiger Head Coach Ehren Earleywine has led the Missouri softball program to almost unheard of levels of success in such a short amount of time. In his first season, he took a team that posted just 26 wins and had a losing record the year before and turned them into a 40-win squad that finished the year with a regional bid and a top-20 national ranking. After 2007, Earleywine led the program to an even higher level of success on the national stage, as his Missouri squads have captured back-to-back-to-back regional championships, a Big 12 title, the first two 50-win seasons in Missouri history and two consecutive Women’s College World Series appearances, making him the first Tiger coach ever to earn back-to-back berths to the pinnacle of college softball. Batting averages, ERA’s and fielding percentages have all improved dramatically, while Tiger players are earning national recognition on a now annual basis. Missouri’s top-ranked softball squad has Earleywine to credit for its rise to national prominence. Named Missouri’s head coach in August of 2006, Earleywine’s rapid success was rewarded with a contract extension which will have the Tiger skipper coaching through the 2013 campaign. In his four years at Missouri, Earleywine has managed a 188-66 record, amassing the second most wins of the Tiger’s eight all-time softball coaches and becoming the fastest Missouri softball coach to reach 100 victories. Since beginning his head coaching career in 2003 at Georgia Tech, Earleywine has turned in a .734 winning percentage, good enough for 13th best of active Division I coaches, and is averaging 48 wins per season. He is the fifth fastest coach to reach 100 wins in NCAA Division I softball history. As successful as the 2009 campaign was, somehow the 2010 Missouri softball season topped it. While that may not have been a surprise when you looked at the team going into the season, Mizzou definitely shocked plenty of people after what happened in the middle of the season. At the end of March, Missouri was flying high, sitting at No. 3 in the country and considered a legitimate contender to win the Women’s College World Series. However, word then broke of a season-ending injury to ace pitcher Chelsea Thomas, and suddenly Missouri became an afterthought. What people seemed to forget, however, is that this was an Ehren Earleywine coached team, and they wouldn’t be allowed to roll over and die.

In just four years, the 2007 Big 12 Coach of the Year, became the first Missouri softball coach to lead his squad to back-to-back-to-back NCAA Regional titles, doing so in 2008 and again at home in Columbia, Mo., in 2009 and 2010. Since taking the reins, Missouri’s batting averages have been on the rise, which includes a .313 mark in 2009, while the team ERA has been on the decline, highlighted by 2009’s 1.47 mark, the Tiger’s best end of the year ERA since 1998. Just as many of Earleywine’s squads have, the 2010 team shattered numerous Missouri records. Along with the 51 wins, Mizzou also set new team records for runs (381), runs batted in (342), and walks (247) With Earleywine at the helm, the Tigers have stolen a total of 494 bases and managed an 82 percent success rate on stolen bags since 2007. In addition to the success Missouri has seen on the field, Earleywine’s squad has received record marks in the classroom, finishing the 2008 campaign with a combined 3.36 grade-point average, the highest GPA since the creation of the program in 1975. Prior to his career at Missouri, Earleywine spent five seasons at Georgia Tech, of which he served as head coach for the final three. Earleywine’s teams made five consecutive appearances in the NCAA Regional Tournament, finishing runner-up on three occasions. The Ramblin’ Wreck claimed Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) regular season and tournament titles in 2005 and to his credit, Earleywine was named the 2005 ACC Coach of the Year. Among his accomplishments, Earleywine’s squads broke every offensive record in school history, setting eight ACC records along the way. In 2006, Georgia Tech displayed the top offensive season for any program in ACC history. The Ramblin’ Wreck broke league single season records in home runs (75), RBI (385), doubles (99), runs scored (428), slugging percentage (.495) and total bases (903). Nationally, Tech led the country for the second straight season with 138 stolen bases and turned the most double plays of anyone in the NCAA with a school record 40. Tech was third in the nation in

After a brief adjustment period in early April, the Tigers finally got it all together. They ended the season with 51 wins, breaking the school record mark of 50 set the previous year. They hosted the regional round for the second straight year, where they used a seventh inning comeback over Creighton and two straight wins over Illinois to capture their third consecutive regional championship. Then, Missouri played host to the NCAA Super Regional round for the first time in school history, sweeping the Oregon Ducks in two games to move on to their second straight and fifth overall Women’s College World Series. Missouri had their fourth All-American awarded under Earleywine, and finished the year ranked No. 8, tying for the highest end of the year ranking in program history. For their work, Earleywine and his staff were selected as the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Midwest Staff of the Year for the second consecutive season.

Assistant Coach PETE D’AMOUR Fifth Season | Pitchers and Catchers | Recruiting Coordinator 2009 & 2010 Midwest Region Staff of the Year After serving three years as Missouri’s volunteer assistant, Pete D’Amour begins his second season as the assistant coach in charge of pitchers and catchers. D’Amour will continue to call pitches and throw batting practice as done in years past and has also taken on the responsibility of softball recruiting coordinator, which includes the scheduling of official and unofficial visits. On top of that, D’Amour also oversees the managers on staff and puts together the team’s schedule each season. Over the past four years, Missouri’s pitching staff has improved significantly, aided in part by D’Amour. The 2010 pitching staff put together a 2.25 ERA, the second-lowest during D’Amour’s tenure at Mizzou, and even more impressive considering Tiger ace Chelsea Thomas spent over half of the season sidelined with an injury. Advancing to their fourth straight NCAA Regional appearance, sophomore Kristin Nottelmann took over the reigns and shined, as she went 3-0 with a 0.82 ERA while striking out 15 and walking just two as she led the Tigers to their third straight regional title. Nottelmann’s success carried over to the NCAA Super Regional round, held for the first time ever on the Tigers’ home field. The righty threw all 14 innings, giving up just one run on the weekend against Oregon. Her dominating performance on the mound helped the Tigers to a two-game sweep over the Ducks, advancing Mizzou to their second straight Women’s College World Series. Missouri’s catchers also turned in solid showings in 2010, as time was split between juniors Megan Christopher and Catherine Lee. Lee, in her first year with the Tigers, posted a .981 fielding percentage, while Christopher had her best defensive year yet, committing just one error to go with 239 putouts and 22 assists for an astounding .996 fielding percentage. In 2009, the Tigers managed a 10-year low ERA of 1.47 with freshman Kristin Nottelmann managing a squad best 1.25 ERA and teammate Thomas, also a freshman, amassing a team best 16 wins, 10 solo shutouts and two no hitters. For her work in regular season play, Nottelmann was awarded second-team All-Big 12 honors. A native of Monrovia, Md., D’Amour graduated from Mizzou in 2008 with a degree in general studies. D’Amour started throwing underhand at the age of four while serving as batboy for his fathers fast pitch team. He has played men’s fast pitch for the past seven years and was the MVP of the NSA World Series in 2007. D’Amour and his wife, Meredith, originally from Edina, Mo., were married during the summer of 2010. D’Amour’s parents, Peter and Beverly D’Amour, live in Hedgesville, W.Va.

MIZZOU

Fifth Season | Outfielders 2009 & 2010 Midwest Region Staff of the Year Melissa Tucci begins her fifth year as an assistant coach for the University of Missouri softball team and continues to work primarily with the Mizzou outfielders. During the 2010 season, Tiger outfielders posted a fielding percentage of .973, improving on the fielding percentage set in 2009. Rhea Taylor picked up the second All-America honor of her career to cap off her best collegiate season yet. On top of that, Taylor and Ashley Fleming were selected to the All-Midwest Region team. The honor was the third of Taylor’s career and the first of Fleming’s. The duo also earned All-Big 12 honors, as both got picked to the first team. In her first year with the program, Tucci coached two outfielders, Leanne Bowers and Minner, to National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) AllRegion honors and two, Julie Silver and Minner, to All-Big 12 accolades. Under her guidance, Tucci helped take the Missouri softball program to a new level of excellence. Together the trio recorded a .972 fielding percentage with only six errors between them. Returning for the 2008 campaign, Silver was the lone Tiger with significant playing experience in the outfield. Newcomers Rhea Taylor and Kathryn Poet were quickly worked into the lineup and took their place in the outfield. Taylor, Missouri’s starting centerfielder for all 64 games, managed a .905 fielding percentage, while rightfielder Poet finished her freshman season at .967. Together, Missouri’s outfield combined for a .964 fielding percentage, Missouri’s best end of the season mark since 2005 (.968). In 2009, Missouri’s outfielders played solid defense, notching a combined .971 fielding percentage and helping the Tigers to their first Women’s College World Series appearance in 15 years. Two Tigers, Micaela Minner and 2008 All-American Rhea Taylor were awarded All-Midwest Region accolades, the third such honor for Minner and second for Taylor. Taylor was also named to the All-Big 12 first team in part by her .984 fielding percentage. Beginning postseason play on May 9 at the 13th annual Big 12 Championships, the Tiger outfield made only two errors in 11 games, good enough for a .946 fielding percentage.

of the Year. Two of her players were also honored as MAAC Player of the Year and Pitcher of the Year at season’s end. Over the course of her five-season stint as head coach of the Red Foxes, Tucci had a number of players earn individual honors. She produced 11 AllMAAC players and 10 All-MAAC Players of the Week. During her tenure at Marist, one of Tucci’s players also slugged her way into top 10 NCAA batting history. Since 2004, eight players were also selected for the USA Athletes International Competition where they played in England, Italy and Australia. In addition to their efforts on the diamond, Tucci’s players proved extremely active in the classroom as well. In 2004, the Red Fox softball team was ranked third nationally by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) after compiling a cumulative 3.528 grade-point average. Nine of Tucci’s players were awarded Academic All-America honors and 33 were honored as allconference academic players. A number of her players were also named ESPN/CoSIDA Academic All-District Team members. Tucci was just as impressive a player on the Red Fox squad during her undergraduate career. While on the team she received MAAC All-Conference and All-Tournament honors as well as weekly honors in NCAA Division I softball. She also served on the Captain’s Council for two years. Tucci graduated with a degree in business administration with concentrations in finance and marketing from Marist in 2001. She earned her Master’s of Business Administration there four years later. Community service has been important to the Tigers’ assistant coach as well. Before leaving Marist to take on her new position at Missouri, Tucci had been a volunteer for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Special Olympics since 2001 and a mentor at the Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie since 2002.

Tucci came to the Tiger program from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., where she served as head softball coach beginning in 2001. As head coach, Tucci was in charge of all phases of the college’s NCAA Division I program. Tucci brought an extensive list of personal accolades to the University of Missouri. In her time at Marist, Tucci turned a Red Fox squad that was 1143 in 2004 into a conference champion in 2006 with an impressive 33-11 record. For its efforts during the 2006 season, Tucci’s team also made the program’s first-ever NCAA tournament appearance, where they faced, and ultimately lost, to No.1 seeded University of Arizona. The 2006 Marist squad ended its season ranked eighth nationally in home runs per game, 19th in slugging percentage, 21st in win-loss percentage and 21st in team earned run average. Individual rankings included eighth in runs scored, ninth in home runs per game, ninth in earned run average, 10th in slugging percentage and 15th in RBI. In recognition of her effective coaching style and her team’s results, Tucci was designated the 2006 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Coach Three Straight Regional Titles

Against All Odds, Tigers Return to WCWS

If the 2010 season did nothing else, it proved two things to be true. One, everything can change in the blink of an eye, and two, you should never count the Missouri softball program out. This year’s Missouri softball team came into the season with big goals and expectations, and though they didn’t accomplish their top goal of winning the National Championship, they still shocked a lot of people on their way to their second straight Women’s College World Series berth. But how do you shock people when you came into the season with the program’s highest ranking ever at No. 8 and were expected to make another WCWS run? By going through the second half of the season without one of the top pitchers in the country, that’s how. When sophomore Chelsea Thomas went down at the end of March, many people thought the Tigers were finished and had no chance to return to the World Series, and for awhile, they looked to be right. However, Mizzou put it together, proving that the Tigers aren’t just a one-person team, and showing that Missouri softball is a force to be reckoned with for many years to come. The Tigers got off to a red-hot start to start the year, winning eight of their first 10 games against one of the country’s most difficult nonconference schedules. Missouri opened the season at No. 2 Alabama, where they would take two-of-three from the Crimson Tide. The season opener saw Mizzou claim a dramatic 2-1 victory, capped off by a breakout first game by freshman Nicole Hudson. With the game tied at 1-1 in the top of the seventh, Hudson blasted the first home run of her career, a game-winning shot over the 2009 & 2010 Regional Staff of the Year

right field fence to give the Tigers the victory. After falling 9-0 in game two, Mizzou bounced back by delivering a 9-0 win in the rubber match, becoming the first team to ever run-rule the Tide at the Alabama Softball Complex. The following weekend, Missouri was back at it with the No. 2 team in the country again, only this time it was the Arizona Wildcats. Rain forced the three-game set to be cut down to a doubleheader, which the two teams split. Arizona took the opener by a 5-0 score before the Missouri bats awoke in game two, as they blasted UA 10-5. The Tigers would take their 3-2 record into their first tournament of the season, the NFCA Leadoff Classic in Columbus, Ga., where they were set to take on three top-25 teams in five games. Mizzou opened play with No. 4 Michigan, and outlasted the Wolverines by a 2-1 score in eight innings. Mizzou defeated Virginia Tech later that night, 9-4. On day two, Missouri needed a pair of comebacks over two ranked teams to stay perfect at the tournament. No. 18 LouisianaLafayette held a 4-2 lead over the Tigers after three, but Mizzou would score nine runs over the last four innings to earn an 11-6 victory. Later that night, with the Tigers down 1-0 in the fifth against No. 20 Massachusetts, a pair of RBI singles put MU up 2-1, a margin they would hold for their fourth win of the weekend. Missouri closed out the tournament with a 10inning battle against Radford. The Tigers finally claimed victory on a walkoff single by Abby Vock to finish the tournament with a perfect 5-0 record. Thomas was named Most Valuable Pitcher of

the tournament, and would claim Big 12 Pitcher of the Week honors for her performance. From there, Missouri was finally able to come home and play in front of their fans for the first time this season, as they kicked off a 15-game home stand that started with the Missouri Breast Cancer Awareness Tournament. The Tigers went 4-0 in the tournament, beating SLU, SEMO, Missouri State and UMKC by a combined score of 36-3. In the tournament-opener with SLU, Thomas threw the third no-hitter of her career. After a 3-0 midweek victory over UNI, the Tigers set to host their second of three tournaments during the home stand. Rain washed out much of the Children’s Hospital Invitational, but Mizzou was still able to get three more wins, defeating New Mexico, Illinois State and Bradley. The Tigers kept rolling into the week, as they swept a doubleheader against Wichita State. Mizzou closed off the home stretch with the Demarini Invitational, hosting Eastern Michigan, Northern Colorado, Ball State and Northwestern. A 7-1 victory over Northern Colorado extended the Missouri winning streak to 17, but that was snapped later that night by Ball State, who stymied the Tiger offense to claim a 2-1 victory. The Tigers bounced back the following day, knocking off Northern Colorado and EMU each by run-rule. Thomas collected her second no-hitter of the season in a 9-0 win over EMU. The next day, Thomas improved to 12-1 on the season with a complete game win over Northwestern, moving the Mizzou record to 22-3 to go with their No. 3 ranking. However, that would be the last time Thomas Three-Time Big 12 Champions

would pitch, as she suffered a stress fracture in her forearm that would end up sidelining her for the rest of the year. Suddenly, Missouri was without an ace, and it’d be up to senior Jana Hainey, who had spent much of her career battling injuries and coming out of the bullpen, and sophomore Kristin Nottelmann, who pitched well her freshman year but rarely pitched in big games, to fill that void. For the next few weeks, the Tigers struggled to find themselves. After rallying for an 11-5 win in the conference opener against OU, Mizzou dropped the finale by a 9-0 run-rule. Then, they were swept at home by the Oklahoma State Cowgirls. They bounced back with a doubleheader sweep over Kansas, which was highlighted by a three-run walk off home run by freshman Jenna Marston in game one, but were once again swept the next weekend, losing a pair to Texas in Austin. After that Texas series, however, a flip switched. After dropping out of the top 10 for the first time all season and losing five of their last 10 games, the Tiger bats woke up. Missouri went 17-2 in their last 19 regular season games and averaged 7.7 runs per game while allowing just 2.3 runs a game. Missouri got themselves back into Big 12 contention with a sweep over Texas Tech, a split at Texas A&M and sweeps over Iowa State and Baylor. A season-ending split at Nebraska gave Mizzou an 11-7 record in league play and the No. 5 seed at Big 12s. The Tigers opened the conference tournament against No. 4 seed OSU. A 5-0 Tiger win exacted revenge for that early-season sweep, as senior Jana Hainey led the way with her first seven inning complete game since April 15, 2009. The victory moved Missouri into the semifinals that evening, where they’d face off against top seeded Texas. Just as they did earlier, the Tigers again got revenge against a team that swept them during the regular season. Missouri pummeled Freshman and Pitcher of the Year Blaire Luna for four runs in two innings, and the Tigers went on to win 11-6. Mizzou moved into the championship game where they were defeated by Oklahoma, but the Tigers proved that they were going to be a force in postseason play. Missouri was selected as the No. 9 seed in the NCAA Tournament and was picked to host the regional round for the second straight season. Joining the Tigers in Columbia was Illinois, DePaul and Creighton. The first round of the NCAA Regional round pitted Missouri and Creighton against each other, and it took an amazing comeback from the Tigers to move past upset-minded Creighton. Missouri would be down to their final three outs, trailing 2-1 in the bottom of the seventh. In the seventh, Lisa Simmons worked a full count walk and Rhea Taylor singled to right, putting runners on first and second with nobody out. A passed ball

moved the runners up, and Catherine Lee sent the Tiger fans home happy as she roped the game-winning double to straightaway center field to give Mizzou the 3-2 win. After beating Illinois 3-1 in the semifinals, Missouri would take on the Illini again in the championship. Once again the Tigers got the best of them, winning 4-2 to claim their third straight NCAA Regional crown. With Oregon upsetting No. 8 seed Georgia Tech, Missouri got to play host to the NCAA Super Regional round for the first time ever. The Ducks and Tigers faced off in a best-of-three series on ESPN, with the winner advancing to the WCWS. Once again, it was the Kristin Nottelmann show. In game one, Nottelmann shut out the Ducks 1-0, throwing all seven innings. The next day, the Missouri offense gave Nottelmann a bit more run support, scoring seven runs as Nottelmann threw her fourth straight complete game. The 7-2 victory advanced the Tigers to their second straight WCWS and fifth World Series in program history. The win was also the team’s 51st of the season, breaking the school record of 50 which was set just one season ago in 2009. At the 29th Women’s College World Series, the Tigers proved that they could hang with any team in the country, even without their true ace, but they remained a few clutch hits away picking up their first WCWS win since 1991. In the first game against No. 16 Hawaii, the Tigers took a 2-1 lead into the top of the seventh inning, but a two-run home run by UH, who hit more home runs than any team in NCAA history in 2010, capped their rally and dropped the Tigers by a 3-2 score. Two days later, Missouri and No. 4 Florida battled in an elimination game. Mizzou out-hit Florida, but couldn’t get the big one when they needed it, as the Tigers left eight runners on base and fell 5-0, ending their 2010 season. Taylor was named an All-American for the second time in her career and became the first Missouri player to be selected to the WCWS All-Tournament Team after hitting .714. While many people felt that the Tigers had no chance of advancing to the WCWS again once Thomas went down, Missouri proved why they should be considered one of the nation’s elite programs with their late-season run. After Thomas’ injury, Missouri ended the year with a 2910 record while moving on to their fifth Women’s College World Series in program history, a feat that any team in the country would be hardpressed to match. With the return of Thomas, the rise of Nottelmann as a top-tier ace, another year with All-Americans Rhea Taylor and Marla Schweisberger and a solid four-person class coming in, the Tigers have every reason to believe that 2011 could be the year they finally claim the national title.
