THIS IS KANSAS GOLF


Alvamar Golf Club Alvamar Golf Club was opened for play May 15, 1968, with the two original nines, Jayhawk and Quail Creek, joined by the Hidden Valley nine in 1973. The Sunflower nine opened in 1978 and in 1982, the Hidden Valley and Sunflower nines became Alvamar Country Club. Alvamar was named by developer Bob Billings from the contraction of the names of his parents, Alva and Margaretta Billings of Russell, Kan. In all, Alvamar Golf Club and Country Club encompasses more than 3,000 acres of west Lawrence. The 36 holes at Alvamar were designed by Mel Anderson and Bob Dunning and include a public and private clubhouse, driving range and three practice greens. The two courses at Alvamar were the first in the United States to utilize zoysia grass for its fairways and tees. The course currently uses cohansey bent green on both surfaces. In 1991, Alvamar Country Club hosted the Kansas Amateur. Alvamar Golf Club annually hosts the Kansas Open and has been the site of the United States Golf Associations Women’s Public Links tournament. It was the site of the Big Eight Conference Men’s Championship for eight consecutive years, and in 1990, the Big Eight Conference

Folds of Honor Major Dan Rooney Folds of Honor Founder

Former Kansas golfer and F-16 fighter pilot Major Dan Rooney founded the Folds of Honor Foundation in 2007. According to its website, www.foldsofhonor.og, the organization’s mission statement reads, “Folds of Honor is rallying a nation to ensure no family gets left behind in the fight to preserve American freedom. Through scholarships and other assistance, we’re giving back to the spouses and children of soldiers killed or disabled in service to our country. We’re providing healing, hope and an opportunity to realize their dreams with the help of people like you. This is our mission.”

when playing a round of golf on that day. In its first two years, Patriot Golf Day raised $3 million in donations from golfers nationwide, and awarded more than 550 scholarships. As a result of his efforts, People Magazine recognized Rooney as one of its 2008 Heroes of the Year, while “ABC World News Tonight” named Rooney as one its Persons of the Year for 2008. Rooney has also received the White House’s Presidential Volunteer Service Award, the Air National Guard’s Distinguished Service Medal, the Ellis Island Medal of Honor and The PGA of America’s first-ever Patriot Award. His many decorations for service include the Air Force Commendation Medal, Air Medal, Anti-terrorism Medal, Combat Readiness Medal and Air Expeditionary Medal. Over the last four years, PGA Professionals and golfers have raised more than $8.5 million, which has allowed more than 2,000 people to receive scholarship funds from the organization.

Rooney, who played golf at KU from 1992-95 and earned a Master’s degree in performance psychology, served in the Oklahoma Air National Guard after graduation and completed three tours of duty in Iraq as an F-16 pilot. When returning home from his second tour, the passengers of his plane were asked to remain seated while the casket with the remains of a fallen soldier, Corporal Brad Bucklin, was carried off. Major Rooney saw the emotional process of the casket being taken away with the Corporal’s brother, wife, son and other family members there to witness it. However, he also noticed that some of the passengers on the plane had already begun deboarding despite the announcement to remain seated. This urged Rooney to do something as a tribute to his fellow American soldiers and led to him starting the noprofit organization. Rooney’s flagship fundraiser became Patriot Golf Day, a collaborative effort between The Professional Golfers’ Association of America (PGA) and the United States Golf Association (USGA) to encourage golfers to pay an extra dollar toward the cause in addition to their greens fees

KU Traditions Campanile Hill Campanile Hill forms the picturesque backdrop for Memorial Stadium. On a sunny fall Saturday, the “Hill” is transformed into a congregating place for watching Jayhawk football, sunning and barbequing. Potter Lake, just to the southwest of Memorial Stadium and at the bottom of Campanile Hill, adds to the beauty of the Kansas campus.

The Rock Chalk Chant The Rock Chalk Chant has been the battle cry of KU fans for more than 80 years. This strange, traditional chant, which is among the most famous of all college cheers, was started by E.H.S. Bailey, a professor of chemistry. On May 21, 1886, Bailey submitted the cheer to his club. Before the University adopted the cheer in 1897, it consisted of “Rah, Rah, Jayhawk, KU” being repeated three times. An English professor soon suggested that “Rock Chalk” be substituted for “Rah, Rah” because it rhymed with Jayhawk. “Rock Chalk” was also symbolic of the chalky limestone formations found on Mount Oread. Teddy Roosevelt once said the Rock Chalk Chant was the best he had ever heard.

The School Colors The University of Kansas colors, crimson and blue, used since the early 1890s, are not the colors originally adopted by the university Board of Regents in the 1860s. The Regents had decided to adopt the Michigan colors, maize and sky blue. Maize and blue were used at early oratorical meets, and they may have been used when Kansas competed in rowing in the middle 1880s. However, when football came upon the scene in 1890, the

student backers wanted to use Harvard crimson as the athletic color in honor of Col. John J. McCook, a Harvard man, who had given money for an athletic field at KU. That field ran east and west in the proximity of where the north bowl of Memorial Stadium stands on the Kansas campus today. Some Yale men were on the faculty, and they demanded the Yale blue be included. The rooters rallied forth to allow crimson and blue on their team. No one fought to retain the original colors, and the vivid deeper tone crimson and blue became generally used. Finally, in May 1896, the KU Athletic Board adopted crimson and blue as the official team colors for the university.

The Alma Mater In 1891, professor George Barlow Penny searched for a school song for the Glee and Mandolin Club to sing on its tour through Kansas to Denver and back. No one responded with an original song in answer to his appeals. Just before departure, he thought of the Cornell song “Far Above Cayuga’s Waters.” Hastily changing a few words, he gave it to the glee club men to sing on the trip. He did not expect the song to be used after their return, but “Crimson and the

KU Traditions Blue” still goes on. The music is not Cornell’s but an old English folk tune, “Annie Lisle.”

Waving The Wheat Since the early days of KU sports, it has been a ritual of Jayhawk fans to “wave the wheat” following every Kansas scoring drive in football. The tradition also extends to Allen Fieldhouse where fans “wave the wheat” when an opponent fouls out and at the conclusion of every Jayhawk victory. The ritual consists of fans waving their arms in the air, an activity which, when done by a large crowd, resembles a breezy Kansas wheat field.

The Nickname During the Civil War a regiment raised by Kansas Governor Charles Robinson called itself the “Independent Mounted Jayhawks” (later officially the First Kansas Calvary and then the Seventh Kansas Regiment). By the end of the Civil War the word Jayhawk was associated with the spirit of camaraderie and the courageous fighting qualities that characterized efforts to keep Kansas a free state. By 1886, the University of Kansas had adopted the mythical bird as part of the KU yell. When the university’s football team first took the field in 1890, it seemed only natural that they should be called Jayhawkers. Few colleges and universities have such a meaningful symbol, one so deeply associated with the struggles of the people who founded them.

The Fight Song George “Dumpy” Bowles, a student with the class of 1912, longed to make a great contribution to the KU spirit, but wasn’t athletic enough to do historic deeds on the a­ thletic field. He turned to music and produced some outstanding student musical shows. A song in one of these shows was “I’m a Jayhawk.” Written in 1912, it was dormant until 1920 when a growth in school spirit brought out “I’m a Jayhawk” once more. The song contributed to the raising of funds to build both the KU football stadium and student union as World War I memorials. The 1926 glee club made it known ­nationally.

YEAR IN REVIEW


2010-11 Recap Kansas men’s golf peaked at the end of the 2010 fall season with three-straight top-three finishes to end the calendar year, capped off by a victory at the Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate on October 26. The stretch began when the team competed in the Colorado Invitational in Erie, Colo. Senior Jeff Bell led Kansas by shooting even-par for the three rounds to tie for 10th place with a score of 216. As a team, the Jayhawks took third out of 14 schools with a three-round aggregate of 869 (+5). Three other KU golfers joined Bell in the top 20 of the event. Senior Nate Barbee tied for 15th with a total of 217 (+1), while sophomore Chris Gilbert was right behind with a 218 (+2) to tie for 18th. Sophomore Alex Gutesha ended the event in a tie for 20th with a two-day total of 219 (+3). Following the Colorado Invitational, Kansas had three weeks off before competing again in the Bill Ross Intercollegiate in Kansas City, Mo., but it was well worth the wait. Barbee claimed his second career individual medalist honors by pacing the field with a three-round 213 (-3) to defeat Daily Young of Missouri State by one stroke. Barbee’s victory guided the Jayhawks to a second-place finish in the 14-team field. Gilbert and Gutesha represented KU’s next two finishers behind Barbee, shooting identical scores of 226 (+10) to tie for 23rd place. Junior Doug Quinones came in one shot behind the sophomore duo with a 227 (+11).

Nate Barbee won the Bill Ross Intercollegiate in 2010 to mark his second career victory.

“He’s been really close,” said Kansas head coach about Barbee’s individual title. “It was one of those deals where he needed to get some good rounds for some confidence. He had a 69 in Colorado, and that helped him a lot. Getting out and shooting under par on Monday helped him, too. He’s playing pretty solid golf right now.”

Grove also knew that Barbee wasn’t the only Jayhawk playing solid golf at the time, which Grove indicated when looking ahead on the calendar. “We feel a lot better,” he said. “Golf is a strange game, so you never really know. Our next tournament (The Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate) is a 15-team tournament, and the field will be about like it was in Colorado. We had three or four guys play there last year, so we have a little experience there. We just want to build on what we’ve been doing. We’ve been doing a good job of keeping our rounds low.” The final round of the fall season was where it would all click for the Jayhawks. Three different Kansas golfers shot 68 or better on the final day as the team overcame an 11-stroke deficit to claim its first tournament title since 2007. Gutesha led KU with a career-best 210 (-3), which included his career-low round of 68 to conclude the event and earn him a tie for third in the 84-person field. Gilbert also had a then-personal-best tournament total of 213 (E) to tie for seventh, marking his second career top-10 finish. Barbee fired a 66 in his last round of 2010 to move 15 spots up the leaderboard and tie for 10th with an aggregate of 214 (+1). Kansas could not regain that same form in the spring season, however. The Jayhawks began 2011 by placing 12th out of 20 teams at the Wyoming Desert Classic in Palm Desert, Calif., and followed it up with another 12th-place showing at the Lousiana Classics. The Jayhawks’ best finish of the spring came at the Iowa Hawkeye Invitiational where the team took sixth place out of 11 entries with a two-round total of 603. KU’s 2010-11 campaign ended with a ninth-place result at the Big 12 Championship after the team shot 1196 (+76) in four rounds over three days.

Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate Entering the final round of the 2010 Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate in fifth place - 11 strokes behind tournament host New Mexico State for the lead - the Kansas men’s golf team made a furious comeback to pass four teams on the leaderboard and claim its first tournament title in four years. Sophomores Chris Gilbert and Alex Gutesha had career-best rounds of 65 and 68, respectively, while senior Nate Barbee added a 66 to lead Kansas to a team total of 273 (-11) on the final day to edge UNLV by one stroke with a three-round score of 858 (+6). Barbee, Gilbert and Gutesha all finished in the top 10 individually, led by Gutesha’s 210 (-3), which was the lowest tournament total of any Jayhawk for the entire season and earned him a tie for third place. Gilbert tied for seventh place with a three-round total of 213 (E), while Barbee tied for 10th (214, +1) after registering three eagles in the final 18 holes, which was more than any other team combined.

“It was pretty amazing how Chris, Alex and Nate played,” said Kansas head coach Kit Grove following the tournament. “We were 14-under among the three of them. That’s pretty good no matter how you look at it. It was great to watch the guys play so well. Chris went out and played mistake-free golf. Alex was on a roll and was pretty much in cruise control after the second hole. Nate had a great round shooting three eagles. Golf is a strange game and you never know where you’re at, but when I saw we were at 11-under for the day, I started to think we had a shot at winning. Of course, you don’t know for sure until all the scores are in.” Kansas passed four teams on the leaderboard as part of its comeback to win its first team trophy since the 2007 All-American Golf Classic in Houston, Texas. “We were far enough back that I don’t know that you think about winning,” recalled Grove later. “When you’re 10 to 12 shots back, that’s a lot to make up, especially when one of the teams is the host team, but we went out and had three guys play really well. Chris, Alex and Nate all shot 68 or better. Doug (Quinones) chipped in with a 74, and it was enough to end up nipping UNLV by one stroke. That was definitely cool for the guys.”

2011-12 Men’s Golf Guide


2011 Fall Recap Kansas men’s golf saw some great individual performances and finishes during the fall season, but inconsistency as a team led to some disappointing showings and left room for improvement heading into the spring. Juniors Alex Gutesha and Chris Gilbert combined for three top-10 finishes, including a team-high eighth-place finish by Gutesha to conclude the fall season at the Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate after he shot a career-best 66 in the second round en route to a three-round total of 210 (-3). Gilbert also ended the fall season strong, shooting a 2-under 69 in the second round of the Wimberly Intercollegiate and finishing in a tie for 18th place with an even-par 213, while senior Doug Quinones carded a team-best 70 in the final round of the fall to tie for 26th. “Doug, Chris and Alex went out and played pretty solid golf,” said Kansas head coach Kit Grove after the final round of the Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate. “For the three of them to get around the course at even-par is good, positive stuff for us. Obviously, day one was our best day of the year. We got a good team effort; nine of our 10 scores were 74 or better. The week as a whole was much better than the last two events. That allows us to end on a positive note going into the spring.” Kansas’ fall season began at the Mark Simpson Invitational in Erie, Colo. The Jayhawks showed steady progress during the two days by lowering their team total in each of the three rounds at the event hosted by Colorado. Gilbert posted the best round of the tournament for KU with a final-round 68 that included four birdies and one eagle to help him finish in a tie for ninth place at 3-under par, 213.

Junior Chris Gilbert had four top20 finishes in the fall season.

Following the Simpson Invitational, KU hosted 12 teams for the Kansas Invitational. The Jayhawks displayed their best team effort of the fall with four Kansas golfers placing in the top 15 at the annual tournament held at Alvamar Golf Club. Junior college transfer Paul Harris led the Jayhawks with a 220 (+4) to tie for 11th, while Gilbert, Gutesha and freshman Dylan McClure all tied for 15th place with three-round totals of 222 (+6). However, Kansas could not overcome its first round where each golfer shot over par. As a result, the team placed fifth with a score of 884 (+20), which was well below the expectations Grove had going into the tournament.

“It’s very disappointing,” said Grove. “This is our home turf, and we putted awful. This is a good, hard golf course, but we did way too many things well to have the scores we had. I thought we had a pretty good week of practice (leading up to this tournament). We did a lot of lag-putting drills because the last tournament was the same deal. We played really solid except a couple guys struggled on the greens. The big thing I’m noticing is (judging) speed. We have to get better at that.” KU’s struggles continued the next two weeks at the Cardinal Intercollegiate and The Invitational at the Ocean Course where Kansas finished 10th and 12th, respectively. Gutesha earned his second top-10 finish of the year with a two-round score of 144 (E) at the rain-shortened Cardinal Intercollegiate, which tied him with four other golfers for 10th. At The Invitational, Quinones led the squad with a 220 (+4) that included 11 birdies during three rounds to tie for 15th place, but poor putting continued to be the downfall of the Jayhawks as a team. “We’re a lot better from tee to green than we’ve been in the past three or four years,” Grove noted after the Cardinal Intercollegiate. “We’re giving away shots on the green, and it’s killing our scores. It’s a lack of execution. The ability to shoot low is there, but we have to execute. Tenth place as a team is not what we’re trying to accomplish.” Kansas seemed to regain some of its form on the greens at the Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate, but it left a lot of room for improvement heading into the winter. “We did a lot of stuff well, but obviously there are a lot of things we have to work on,” said Grove at the end of the Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate. “They’re going to need to put in the time in the offseason. We have to get sharper. They’ve got to continue to do the stuff that we’ve been working on in the fall throughout the offseason.”

2012 Spring Preview Kansas men’s golf will travel to some familiar places this spring as it prepares for the Big 12 Championship in May. KU will begin its spring campaign at the Louisiana Classics in Lafayette, La., a site where the Jayhawks have competed each of the last five years and 15 of the last 16 seasons dating back to 1996. The Jayhawks will look to start the season strong and improve on their 12th-place total of 893 a year ago. Kansas started to build some momentum at the end of the fall season with a fifth-place showing at the Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate, but in order to sustain that throughout the spring, KU will need to have a reliable No. 5 golfer emerge on the team. “Obviously, Alex (Gutesha) played well in our last event to finish off the fall season at New Mexico State,” said Kansas head coach Kit Grove. “Chris (Gilbert) played solid as well. Paul (Harris) had a good first day. Doug (Quinones) played fairly solid for us, too. It’s just going to be the mystery five man. That’s something we were very poor at in the fall. Our fourth score was way too high round in and round out. Dylan (McClure) got in the lineup quite a bit. It’s an adjustment as a freshman, but we need a little more consistency. You have to get a little bit of help from your four and five guys, and that was a thing that really hurt us this year. As a whole, we would get two or three guys to play decent, and we just couldn’t quite get that help.” Another focus for the spring will be increased consistency in the putting game, an area where the Jayhawks struggled during the fall.

Junior Paul Harris joined the team from Central Alabama Community College this season.

“We putted so poorly at the beginning of the year when the guys were probably playing a little bit better,” noted Grove. “We made a big commitment to some different speed drills and other things during the last four to six weeks of practice in the fall. We actually started to see some improvement statistically from a putting standpoint toward the end. We’re continuing to try and do that and trying to get them to do some of that work on their own in the offseason.”

Following the Louisiana Classics, KU will return to the Border Olympics in Laredo, Texas, for the second-straight year before traveling to the Desert Shootout in Goodyear, Ariz. The Jayhawks had a stong showing in their most recent appearance at the Desert Shootout, taking second place as a team while also seeing Nate Barbee claim second place individually in 2010 with a three-round score of 205. After a two-week layoff, KU will play two tournaments in a span of seven days, beginning with the Cowboy Classic April 9-10 in Scottsdale, Ariz., and concluding with The Western Intercollegiate April 14-15 in Santa Cruz, Calif. The Western Intercollegiate will serve as the final tune-up for the Jayhawks before the Big 12 Championship, which will be held April 27-29 in Trinity, Texas. With the strength of the conference, Grove knows a top-half finish at the league event will require a team effort, especially with the Championship being hosted in the state of Texas. “I don’t think the goal of finishing in the top half of the Big 12 is crazy,” said Grove. “By the same token, if you looked at the rankings today, Texas is No. 1 in the nation. Oklahoma State is ‘struggling’ and they were ninth in the last poll I looked at. You have six or seven teams, in reality, that have a chance of being in the top 25 in mid-April when we go there. Plus, if you look at statistically going to Trinity every year, the southern schools do well. They play on the Bermuda grass all the time. The ball reacts differently on the greens. Our guys have a hard time figuring out ‘Am I down grain or into the grain?’ I don’t think it’s something tangible you can say is worth X-number of shots, but there is definitely something to it because year in and year out, the ‘north’ is more competitive when we’re at Prairie Dunes (in Hutchinson, Kan.). It’s an uphill battle, but it can be done. That’s the beauty of golf. You never know what you’re going to get from week to week.”

In the 2010-11 season, Grove guided the Jayhawks to a couple of firsts, including the team’s first title since it won the All-American Golf Classic Feb. 27, 2007. Three different Jayhawks shot 68 or better in the final round of the Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate to overcome an 11-stroke deficit and claim the team trophy by one shot over UNLV. Grove also saw the team post its best scoring average for a season during his tenure with a three-round mark of 889.6. In Grove’s first season he led a youthful Jayhawk squad to a sixth-place finish at the 2008 Big 12 Championship. The team recorded four top-10 finishes, including a tie for second place at the 2007 Kansas Invitational. The program utilized a veteran nucleus and many talented up-and-coming young players to continue to build in Grove’s second season. The team posted three top-five results, including back-to-back third-place finishes at the Fairway Club Invitational and Kansas Invitational to open the season. The 2009-10 team produced seven top-five finishes during the year. The Jayhawks recorded three runner-up finishes. The team was led by Nate Barbee, who registered eight of the team’s nine top-five individual finishes, including a victory at the Kansas Invitational. Grove, a Superior, Neb. native, played three years for the Jayhawks (1995-97) under the tutelage of Randall. Grove stayed involved with the Jayhawk program even after his playing days were over, helping Randall with his annual junior summer camps and also serving as a volunteer student assistant coach during the 1997-98 campaign. Randall stepped down from his post as head coach at the conclusion of the spring 2007 season to become the director of golf operations. Randall retired from KU Athletics in 2009.

Kit Grove playing his freshman season at New Mexico State. During his first season with KU, Grove competed in both the NCAA Central Regional and the NCAA Championship. As a junior, Grove completed his best tournament as a Jayhawk, tying for fifth at the 1995 Kansas Invitational highlighted by his second-round score of 68. He competed in 12 tournaments as a junior and turned in two top-10 finishes. Grove played a major role during his senior season, competing in all 12 events. He placed in the top 25 three times during his final Jayhawk season, capped off by his ninth-place finish at the Pacific Coast Intercollegiate. Throughout his career Grove excelled both on the golf course and in the classroom. In high school Grove was named the valedictorian of Southeast (Lincoln, Neb.) High School and maintained a 4.0 GPA. The academic honors continued for Grove while at Kansas where he was named Academic AllAmerican in 1997. Grove’s other academic honors included being named both Academic All-Big Eight and a Big Eight Classroom Champion in 1997.

Since graduating from Kansas in 1998, golf has led Grove all over the world, both as a professional player and golf instructor. After a quick stop in Bend, Ore., as an instructor at a local course, Grove settled in Phoenix, Ariz. at the 500 Golf Club where he served as both an instructor and assistant golf professional. In 2001, Grove decided to once again take up the game of golf at the professional level. He began his professional career on the Arizona Professional Tour prior to dabbling on the DP Tour in Atlanta, Ga. Grove decided to take his game to the international level in 2002 when he traveled to South Africa to compete on the Sunshine Tour. He spent one year on the Sunshine Tour before returning to the United States to compete on the Grey Goose Gateway Tour. Grove competed on this tour for four years prior to accepting the assistant coaching post at Kansas.

Prior to KU, McCants spent seven years on the men’s golf coaching staff at Newberry College in Newberry, S.C., serving as the head coach for the final six. During that time, McCants guided Newberry to the NCAA Division II National Championship quarterfinals in 2011, making Newberry the first South Atlantic Conference team in history to qualify for the NCAA Division II Men’s Golf National Championship twice after it also made it in 2008. McCants earned the South Atlantic Conference Coach of the Year Award four years running from 2008-11 before leaving to take his current position at KU. He also coached the first South Atlantic Conference Golfer of the Year in program history in 2011 and three-straight SAC Freshman of the Year winners from 2008 to 2010. Prior to Newberry, McCants was the head men’s golf coach at St. Andrews Presbyterian College in Laurinburg, N.C. “Brian brings almost a decade of experience as a head coach to the program,” said Kansas men’s golf head coach Kit Grove at the time of McCants’ hiring. “During his tenure at Newberry, he improved his team scoring average by 23 shots (from 315 to 292). That tells me that he is not only an aggressive recruiter, but a hands-on coach as well. He came very prepared to the interview. He knew quite a bit about KU and its history and was very enthusiastic. We look forward to having him become a part of the KU family.” McCants earned a Bachelor of Science in business management in 1994 from Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Mich. He is married to the former Lauren Ressler, who was a three-year captain on Yale’s golf team and graduated from the university in 2006.

Athletics Director Dr. Sheahon Zenger Dr. Sheahon (SHAY-un) Zenger is a coach at heart. But when KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little introduced the Hays, Kan., native as KU’s Athletics Director January 3, 2011, he promised not to call any plays for the coaches. That doesn’t mean, though, that he won’t be right there with them - and their studentathletes - every step of the way. For it’s his genuine care for coaches and student-athletes that has stamped his career in intercollegiate athletics. Zenger comes to KU after serving for five years as athletics director at Illinois State University, helping steer ISU Athletics to a place of prominence in the Missouri Valley Conference. The Redbirds won a conferenceleading seven league titles during the 2009-10 season and captured their second Valley All-Sports Trophy in three years. ISU’s Weisbecker Scholarship Fund membership grew 65 percent during his tenure, and capital projects boomed. The Illinois State Baseball Stadium at Duffy Bass Field was officially dedicated in May 2009 to culminate the completion of that $3.5 million project. In addition, funding for the Redbird Arena locker room improvements has also been secured. With experience as an educator, coach, fundraiser and administrator, Zenger brought a plan to Illinois State, and with the help of the head coaches and administrative staff, personalized that strategic plan for Redbird Athletics. As a result, the athletics department saw record-high grade-point averages (GPA) in each of the last four years, including a best-ever department-wide 3.13 GPA in fall 2009. Redbird student-athletes now regularly carry a GPA of 3.0 or better. ISU student-athletes have also contributed more than 2,000 hours of community service in each of the last five years, including 3,500 hours during the 2009-10 athletic season. In addition to Valley All-Sports titles in 2008 and 2010, in his last three years at ISU Zenger led the department to 16 top-five finishes in its 17 Valley sports - the highest percentage of top-five finishers in league history. Zenger secured a five-year apparel contract for Redbird Athletics, and significantly increased the marketing of the program in the Central Illinois region, most notably with a campaign centered on the award-winning marketing campaign “Spread the Red.” He also witnessed record-setting attendance figures in football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball, while seeing 17 Redbird teams advance to postseason play. At the beginning, Zenger wasn’t headed toward a career in administration. He was nine years old when he told his father he wanted to be a coach, and it didn’t take long for that dream to materialize. After playing football at Fort Hays State and Mid-American Nazarene College, he finished his undergraduate degree at Kansas State. Even before he received his bachelor’s degree in English and secondary education in 1988, Zenger was assisting the football coaches at Manhattan (Kan.) High School. His first college football coaching job came at Drake University right after graduation. In 1989, at age 23, Zenger joined Bill Snyder’s staff at Kansas State as one of the nation’s youngest full-time football staff members; he served in key roles as assistant recruiting coordinator and director of football operations. Zenger completed his master’s degree in journalism and mass communication in 1992 while helping Snyder bring Wildcat football to unprecedented success. It became evident, though, that more than coaching was in store for Zenger. He sought advice from then-KU Chancellor Gene Budig, who convinced him to pursue a Ph.D. at KU. As he completed his Ph.D. in educational policy and leadership (1996), Zenger contributed communications and special projects support to the office of the executive vice-chancellor, Ed Meyen, and wrote the professional life history of then-chancellor Del Shankel, while strengthening his understanding of university leadership at the highest levels. While focusing his attention on academics, he managed to stay involved in the world of intercollegiate athletics, and specifically football. ‘Involved’ may be an understatement. In 1993 Zenger and a friend founded American Football Quarterly, a magazine for coaches. Zenger served as publisher - and then editor - until 1995, when he sold his share of the by-then thriving magazine. Still, coaching stayed in his blood. After earning his doctorate, Zenger in 1996 signed on as the recruiting coordinator for the brand-new NCAA Division I football program at the University of South Florida. A year later he joined the University of Wyoming football staff as recruiting coordinator and within two years rose to assistant head coach, a position he still considers one of the crowning achievements of his career. Zenger stayed at Wyoming through the 2000 season before returning to Kansas State. He spent a year in the KSU College of Business, raising more than $2 million and restructuring its development program with research and planning. He rejoined KSU Athletics in 2001 as Assistant Athletics Director for Major Gifts, helping KSU initiate important development strategies. In 2002 he was appointed KSU’s Associate Athletics Director for Development, a position he held until 2005, when he was named Athletics Director at Illinois State. A published author and researcher, Zenger served for three years on the NCAA Division I Committee on Student-Athlete Reinstatement. He also served on two NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Division committees, and was a member of the Executive Committee of NACDA’s Division I FCS Athletic Directors Association. He is also a member of many professional and university organizations, including the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), the Association for the Study of Higher Education and the American Football Coaches Association. Zenger is married to the former Pam McAnarney. The couple has three children: Luke (14), Abby (12) and Jake (10).

Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little A highly regarded scholar, teacher and university leader, Bernadette Gray-Little began her tenure as the 17th chancellor of the University of Kansas on August 15, 2009. As KU chancellor, Gray-Little is the chief executive officer of the university, overseeing campuses in Lawrence, Kansas City, Overland Park and Wichita in addition to research and educational centers in Topeka, Hutchinson, Parsons and elsewhere in the state. She succeeds Robert Hemenway, who served as KU chancellor for 14 years. Chancellor Gray-Little previously was executive vice chancellor and provost from 2006 to 2009 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A professor of psychology, Gray-Little rose to the post of UNC’s chief academic officer after successive administrative appointments, including dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, executive associate provost, senior associate dean for undergraduate education for the college, and chair of the Department of Psychology. In these roles, she earned a reputation as a superb fundraiser, a relationship builder, a strong advocate for faculty and for research, and a champion for the highest quality educational experience for students. A native of eastern North Carolina, Gray-Little received her bachelor’s degree from Marywood College in Scranton, Pa., and her master’s and doctoral degrees in psychology from St. Louis University. Her postdoctoral research in cross-cultural psychology was funded by a fellowship from the Fulbright Foundation for study in Denmark. She has also been a Social Science Research Council Fellow and a recipient of a Ford Foundation Senior Scholar Fellowship through the National Research Council. Her research falls primarily into three areas, two of which reflect a continuing interest in the relation of social and cultural factors to personality and psychopathology. First, she has studied the relevance of the client and clinician’s ethnic/racial membership to the diagnosis and treatment of psychological disorder. The second area concerns the social determinants of self-esteem and is manifest in research on factors associated with selfesteem in children and adolescents of varied ethnic groups. In a third area of research she has explored the association of relationship satisfaction to the decisionmaking and influence strategies used by couples in intimate relationships. Gray-Little is married to Shade Keys Little, who was assistant dean for academic support services at UNC. They have two adult children and one grandchild.
