Everyone is great around campus and in town, and there are lots of things to do here if you step out and explore. My first-year college experience has been great.” – Courtney Hayes, So.

OLIVIA LUKASEWICH

“Don’t pass over Tech because it is a small school or in a small town. The atmosphere is great and very supportive of the school. I love the small class sizes; the teachers know you by name and you get much more personal attention than you might be able to get somewhere else. It really is a family atmosphere.”

2012 LADY TECHSTER SOCCER

During her four-year career, she led the Lady Techster soccer team to its best four-year stretch in program history.

“Tech has helped me mature into the student I am today. I started slowly, but Tech was very inspirational with helping me work toward my overall goal because my professors and coaches taught me that through hard work and faith, all things are possible. I’ve met people here who will be my friends for the rest of my life. Just as Tech will be.” – Philip Longino, Jr. (Houston, Texas)

Did You Know: Louisiana is home to Mardi Gras, one of the largest carnival celebrations in the world. Held each February in New Orleans, the two-week party draws millions of tourists from around the world. It’s also home to a number of professional franchises including the NFL’s 2009 Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints and the NBA’s New Orleans Hornets.

Louisiana is the crawfish capital of the

world, supporting a multi-million dollar-a-year industry. With speckled trout and large and small-mouth bass action that is unrivaled in the country, with clouds of ducks filling the skies most winters, with deer, rabbit and squirrels running wild, Louisiana is rightly nicknamed Sportsman’s Paradise. It’s a fisherman and hunter’s dream-come-true.

Lincoln Parish is home to three state parks, numerous lakes and ponds for fishing, boating and water skiing, a world-renowned mountain bike trail, the annual Peach Festival and one of the top golf courses in the South in Squire Creek Country Club. Although there is plenty to do almost every weekend in Ruston including a multitude of LA Tech athletic events, Tech students have plenty of other options as Ruston is located within a five hour drive of some of the top entertainments cities in the South, including Dallas, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Little Rock, Houston, Mobile and Birmingham.

“Community service is very important to us. As a team we believe in giving of yourself for the betterment of others, and this corresponds to not only how we relate to each other as teammates, but also to our community. We want to give back and are continually working at various projects during the school year to help. With opportunity comes responsibility and we understand that playing soccer at the NCAA Division I level is a privileged opportunity. We must take on board and embrace the responsibilities which come with that privilege. One such responsibility is to give back and help with the local community. The community as well as the players themselves will benefit from such service. It is central to our team philosophy.” - Head Coach Kevin Sherry

LADY TECHSTER SOCCER COMPLEX 2012 LADY TECHSTER SOCCER

The Lady Techster Soccer Complex begins its fourth season of existence in 2012 as the home field for the Louisiana Tech soccer team. Located across the street from their previous home, Joe Aillet Stadium on Alabama Ave., the Lady Techster Soccer Complex features bleachers, a press box, a sound system and scoreboard. “The grounds staff has done such a great job of giving the team a fantastic playing surface to play on, and now with the addition of bleachers and a press box we have something to show our visiting recruits and call home,” head coach Kevin Sherry said. “It is exciting for everyone involved to see it growing.” In three seasons, the Lady Techsters have posted a 19-8-1 record at their new home, including three notable victories. The first occurred in the 2009 home opener as Tech beat Lamar 3-2 in double overtime for their first win at the Lady Techster Soccer Complex. On Oct. 23, 2009, Kiva Gresham’s extraframe goal, and second of the game, gave Tech a 2-1 win over New Mexico State for their first-ever conference win. The third happened on Oct. 15, 2010 against 2009 WAC champion San Jose St. as Tech came back from a two-goal halftime deficit to win 5-4 in overtime. The complex was also host to the 2010 WAC Tournament. The Lady Techsters’ secondary home is Joe Aillet Stadium, home to the Bulldog football team, where they posted an 11-12-4 record over the program’s previous four years (2005-08). The facility will forever be remembered as the place where the soccer program earned its inaugural victory, a 2-0 shutout of Mississippi Valley State on Aug. 28, 2005. Tech’s Katy Garrison scored the first goal in the stadium on an assist by Sarah Chovanec at the 45:45 mark of the game. During Tech’s inaugural season in 2004, they played all of their home games on the intramural soccer field across from the Lambright Intramural Center.

“We have plans to make the soccer complex even better with the inclusion of lights and a surrounding fence in the not too distant future. I know the players are very motivated and excited about playing on their home field for the upcoming season. A big “thank you” from the team for everyone who has made this possible.” – Head Coach Kevin Sherry

SEASON OUTLOOK The LouisianaTech LadyTechsters were bitten hard by the injury bug, the illness bug and just about every other bug for that matter during the 2011 season. Having lost nine players in preseason alone, shuffled lineups became a regularity as the team ultimately clawed its way to an 8-8-4 overall record and a 1-6 WAC finish that included two heartbreaking overtime defeats to Nevada and Hawai’i. With many of these injuries being career-ending as well, this year’s team will see a completely revamped roster as 17 newcomers join the sideline. The backbone of this year’s team will come from the two versatile seniors returning in Lindsay Brough and Mo Rockwell. “Lindsay and Mo will take on leadership roles as captains being our only two seniors,” said head coach Kevin Sherry. “They are both leaders by example and have already had some experience of leading the team through the spring season in which they were very successful. The team as a whole will have to develop a form of ‘team communication’ in order to keep each other focused and motivated.” Coupled with these injury losses was the loss of seven key four-year seniors which leaves the depth chart wide open for 2012. The massive and talented incoming freshmen class will push hard for playing time and be given early opportunities to contribute on the field. “The incoming freshman class will have a huge part to play,” Sherry said. “Their class will play more minutes than any other class, and I am confident they will do well. This season will be a great learning experience which can only be a benefit for the program as they develop over the years.” Offensively Tech will be led by returning juniors Taylor Dennis and Emily Brennan. Last season Dennis tied for the second most goals with three and was third on the team in shot attempts with 47. Sophomore Abby Sentz looks to contribute even more minutes at forward this season after starting 11 games her freshman year. Finding more strikers

within the freshman class for depth will be crucial to improving an offensive line that is decimated with losses. Joining Brough and Rockwell in the midfield will be juniors Paige Dunn, Heather Fitzgerald and Mia Schorpp. This core group was instrumental in 2011 helping lead this team to its best defensive year statistically in program history. They allowed only 5 shots on goal a game on average with only 17 of those scoring, the fewest ever given up in a season. With the graduation of defensive greats Amy Quintana, Scotti Culton, Chelsea White and Olivia Lukasewich, the back line will only be returning junior Jessica Davis. Helping solidify the defense will be the seven freshman defenders coming in. In goal returns the experienced and skillful junior Caitlin Updyke. She broke her own school record of most shutouts in a season last year with eight while starting 19 of 20 games. She’s already on the verge of shattering every other goalkeeping record at Louisiana Tech. Backing her up will be redshirt sophomore Rebecca Alvarez. Fans will have more chances to see this young Lady Techsters team in action as the schedule features 10 home games, three more than from 2011. Tech will open the season at home against Ohio Valley member Murray State, while also playing Southeast Missouri State and Jacksonville State from the same conference. It will be the first ever meeting against the Southeast Missouri State Redhawks who are coming off a regular season conference title. The contest against Jacksonville State will come in Troy, Ala. in the Trojan Classic Tournament where they will also face host team Troy. The nonconference schedule will also feature games against Sun Belt members Central Arkansas and McNeese State. Despite the departures of Fresno State, Hawai’i and Nevada from the WAC, Tech’s last year in the Western Athletic Conference will prove to be the most difficult as it has only gotten stronger with the additions of Seattle, Denver, Texas State and UTSA. “This is by far the strongest set of soccer teams in the WAC ever,” Sherry said. “Denver is coming in and they have been nationally ranked in the top 20, and the other new schools Texas State, UTSA and Seattle are big schools with great facilities and great locations for recruiting.” The strength of schedule and the roster turnover will prove challenging for this year’s squad. The odds will be stacked against them, but Sherry and his coaching staff will look for each player, young or old, offensive or defensive, to pitch in and do their very best in helping in this program’s growing success. “This season will all come down to a real team effort,” said Sherry. “Each player has to be ready for when called upon to go into the game and give absolutely everything. The only way we are going to be competitive is if each member of the squad maximizes their potential and grabs their opportunity when it arrives.”

KEVIN SHERRY

Head Coach

Kevin Sherry begins his sixth season as head coach of the Lady Techsters and his 12th overall in Division I college coaching. Since he arrived in Ruston prior to the 2007 season, he has completely revamped the soccer program by instilling the four pillars of Lady Techster soccer: Passion, Respect, Service, Fearless. The fearlessness was on display all of last season as the team saw their entire offensive line decimated with injuries and ill-fortune. The reshuffled offense struggled to put the ball in the net, but the seven four-year seniors went on to anchor one of the best defenses statistically in program history. They allowed the fewest goals (17) ever in a single season and had the second most shutouts ever with nine. The 2011 Lady Techster squad ultimately clawed its way to an 8-8-4 finish after going 1-6 in the Western Athletic Conference, including two heartbreaking overtime defeats to Nevada and Hawai’i. The passion has not only been seen on the soccer field, but in the classrooms as well. Since the native of Grantham, England arrived in Ruston, Tech has consistently been recognized for its excellence in education as they were awarded the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA)/Adidas Team Academic Award for three consecutive school years. The award recognizes teams that have a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or better The respect has been acknowledged through their sportsmanship as the team has been awarded multiple times with the NSCAA Ethics/Sportsmanship Award. The award recognizes teams with less than five yellow cards throughout the season. The biggest cultural impact in the program, however, has come from the fourth pillar – Service. Community service has been a staple of Sherry’s teams through his five years as head coach. They have helped with various projects during the school years such as the Special Olympics, Habitat for Humanity, YMCA Shreveport, among many others. They’ve also logged several hours of their time teaching young kids in soccer clinics.

A fifth pillar could be added to the revamping of the Lady Techster soccer program as well -- Winning. Since Sherry took over as head coach in 2007, he has developed winning individuals and winning teams year in and year out. Two of his seniors from last year became the first Lady Techsters ever to join professional soccer teams. Defender/ forward Scotti Culton joined the Colorado Rapids Women based out of Fort Collins, Colo. of the W-League and defender/forward Olivia Lukasewich joined the Spartans Women’s and Girls’ Football Club of the Scottish Women’s Premier League. The Premier League is the highest level of women’s soccer in Scotland. In 2010, Sherry’s Lady Techsters finished with a record of 15-6 overall and 5-3 in the Western Athletic Conference, both school records. After being picked last in the conference preseason polls, Tech finished tied for third. Also for the first time ever, the Lady Techsters placed individuals on the allWAC team and qualified for the WAC Tournament, which was held at the Lady Techster Soccer Complex. In a season with so many great accomplishments, Sherry recorded a personal one of his own. With an 8-0 win over Grambling State on Sept. 1, 2010, Sherry won the 100th game of his NCAA coaching career. In 2009, after winning their first 11 games, Sherry led Tech to a 12-7-1 record, including the program’s first-ever Western Athletic Conference win. Tech scored the most goals (54), assists (45) and points (153) ever in a single season. In match play, the Lady Techsters set new single-game records in goals (12), assists (12) and points (36). In 2008, the Techsters were recognized for their significant improvement from their 2007 campaign when they went 2-14-1. Sherry and Co. posted a 105-5 record, an eight game improvement that the NCAA recognized along with three other schools, as one of the most

improved teams in the nation. They also established a new shutouts record with 10 as they held their opponents scoreless in nine of their 10 wins. Shortly after the conclusion of the 2008 season, Sherry was selected to serve as U.S. Youth Olympic Development coach. Sherry was given the responsibility of coaching the Louisiana U-16 team and was also selected to instruct a coaching clinic for all high school coaches in the state of Louisiana. Sherry spent two years as head coach at Western Illinois. He inherited a program that was 24-111-7 over its history, including a 3-12-3 mark, the year prior to his arrival. Between the 2005 and 2006 seasons, he compiled a 20-13-4 record, and the program was recognized as one of the NCAA’s most improved. Before his arrival, the program had never experienced a winning season.

He led Western Illinois to its first MidContinent Championship finals in 2006. Even though the Westerwinds lost the conference championship, they finished with an 11-7-1 record. Their 11 wins were the most victories in a season in school history. Sherry turned around another losing program as head women’s soccer coach at Graceland University. Prior to his arrival, the Yellowjackets never had a winning season in its history. That changed as well. He coached Graceland to records of 12-7-1 and 16-2-3 before he led the team to an 18-0-5 record in his final season. Their success equated to the school’s first undefeated season, the school’s first-ever Heart of America Athletic Conference (HAAC) Championship, an appearance in the NAIA Final Four and its highest national ranking of seventh by the NSCAA. For Sherry’s efforts, he was named NSCAA Central Region

NAIA Women’s Coach of the Year. While being head coach at Graceland, Sherry also served as head coach of the Des Moines Menace U-15 Boys Super Y League and worked with the Iowa Olympic Development program. Sherry has international coaching experience as well as he was the head men’s soccer coach at Nagoya Gakuin University and the Aichi F.C. Nagoya junior youth head coach in Japan prior to his four-year stint at Graceland. He also worked as the director of soccer coaching and player youth development for the Al Nahda national schools organization in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates from 1992-93. Sherry got his first-ever head coaching job at Burlington Danes High School in London in 1987. During his five years at the institution, the school won the West London Area Cup at every age level and also won the prestigious London Championship two straight years. One of his

2011 ALL-WAC FIRST TEAM F Callie Hancock ................................... Fresno State

F Shantel Flanary ..................................... Utah State MF Molly Nizzoli .................................... Fresno State After completing its 50th year of intercollegiate competition, the Western Athletic Conference continues to evolve and feature some of the nation’s best programs. One thing that remains unchanged is the persistent nature of the schools in the WAC to advance their programs to contend at the top levels of the NCAA. The WAC provides its student-athletes the chance to travel to scenic destinations and gain exposure in some of the nation’s most diverse markets. In addition, the WAC’s student-athletes work to achieve the highest levels of success with the academic support of their respective institutions. The WAC has experienced tremendous success over the years. Since 2000, a total of 43 football teams have been invited to bowl games, including more than half of its teams in 2008 with a record-tying five. The conference has sent teams to BCS bowl games three times since 2006. In men’s basketball, the WAC has sent at least two teams to the NCAA Tournament in 24 of the past 29 seasons. In baseball, the WAC has boasted two national champions since 2003. In women’s basketball, Louisiana Tech basketball has played in all but three NCAA postseason tournaments during its history. In 2001, the WAC partnered with ESPN for coverage of football and basketball giving the conference national exposure from one of the most respected broadcast entities in the country. The WAC also officially added WAC. tv in 2006 to give fans streaming internet access to many of its postseason championships including volleyball, soccer, swimming and diving, basketball, softball and baseball. The WAC is the sixth oldest among the nation’s 11 Division I-A conferences. Its history traces back to July 27, 1962, when the original six-team league of Arizona, Arizona State, Brigham Young, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming began competition. The first championship was held in November 1962, when Arizona won the men’s cross country title and New Mexico followed with the first WAC football title. Arizona finished second in the NCAA College World Series and, less than three years later, Arizona State claimed the league’s first NCAA title when the Sun Devils won the College World Series trophy. Fresno State was the last WAC school to earn an NCAA team title when it won the College World Series in 2008. Since 1962, several changes have occurred. UTEP and Colorado State became members in September 1967, while Arizona and Arizona State withdrew on June 30, 1978. The WAC then added San Diego State (1978), Hawai‘i (1979) and Air Force (1980). Before 1990, the WAC sponsored championships only in men’s sports. However, a merger with the High Country Athletic Conference formed a single conference under one administrative structure, and the 1990-91 athletic year was the first in which both men and women competed under the WAC name. Fresno State was added in 1992, and then in 1996, the women’s programs from Air Force and Hawai‘i along with six new schools (UNLV, Rice, San Jose State, SMU, TCU and Tulsa) came into the WAC. Air Force, Brigham Young, Colorado State, UNLV, New Mexico, San Diego State, Utah and Wyoming withdrew on June 30, 1999. Nevada (2000), Boise State (2001) and Louisiana Tech (2001) were added while TCU withdrew following the 2000-01 season. In 2005, Idaho, New Mexico State and Utah State joined the WAC after Rice, SMU, UTEP and Tulsa withdrew. Boise State withdrew prior to the 2011-12 season. The current membership began on July 1, 2012 when the WAC added Denver, Seattle, UT-Arlington, UTSA and Texas State to replace withdrawing members, Fresno State, Hawai‘i and Nevada. Boise State returns in 2013-14 in all sports except football. The WAC has had just six commissioners in its history. Paul Brechler was named the first leader of the conference and held the position from 19621968. He was followed by Wiles Hallock (1968-71), Stan Bates (1971-80), Dr. Joe Kearney (1980-94), Karl Benson (1994-2012) and current interim commis-

He was also responsible for team sport scheduling and was the administrator for football, men’s basketball and baseball. Hurd is a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism and began his professional career as the Sports Editor of the Hannibal (Missouri) Courier-Post. He also worked for the Tulsa Tribune, was the Sports Information Director at the University of Tulsa and the Director of Public Relations for the Missouri Valley Conference prior to joining the WAC. A native of Minot, North Dakota, Hurd and his wife, Cheri, reside in Centennial, Colo., and are the parents of four children: Shannon, Michael, Kristen and Kevin.

DR. DAN RENEAU

University President

For over half a century, President Dan Reneau and Louisiana Tech University have shared a reputation for higher education excellence, leadership and performance that is unrivaled anywhere in the State of Louisiana. With a passion for service and a commitment to his University and its constituents, Dr. Reneau has become one of the most respected and admired educational leaders in the history of Louisiana higher education. Dr. Reneau’s many accomplishments at Louisiana Tech began with a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering in 1963. He also earned a master’s degree from Tech in chemical engineering in 1964, followed by a doctorate from Clemson University in 1966. Dr. Reneau returned to Louisiana Tech in 1967 as an assistant professor of chemical engineering and quickly distinguished himself as a scholar and researcher. He has published over 80 technical papers in books and journals, edited five books, and attended over 100 international meetings and conferences. In 1972, Dr. Reneau was responsible for establishing Louisiana Tech’s Biomedical Engineering Department – one of the first of its kind in the United States. The department and its undergraduate curriculum became only the fifth program accredited in the nation. The Biomedical Engineering Ph.D. program was later awarded a Commendation of Excellence by the Louisiana Board of Regents. Dr. Reneau’s continued vision and leadership resulted in his appointment as Louisiana Tech’s Vice President of Academic Affairs in 1980. In this capacity, he served as chief academic officer to some 400 faculty housed in six colleges and three professional schools, offering 160 different degree programs. During his tenure, every major program with an accrediting agency was awarded accreditation. He was also instrumental in establishing Louisiana Tech’s Center for Biomedical Engineering and Rehabilitation Science. On February 20, 1987, the Board of Trustees for State Colleges and Universities selected Dr. Reneau as the 13th President of Louisiana Tech University. While accomplishments have been many during Dr. Reneau’s tenure as President of Louisiana Tech, some of the most notable include the implementation of selective admissions, achievement of Division I-A football status, establishment of the Institute for Micromanufacturing (IfM), construction of a new state-of-the-art Biomedical Engineering facility, attainment of the Carnegie Research University/High Research Activity classification, and the establishment of a 50-acre research park between the Tech campus and downtown Ruston called Enterprise Campus. In 1995, Dr. Reneau was awarded the Distinguished Arthur T. Prescott Professorship in Engineering. In 1999, the Clemson Alumni Association, in conjunction with Clemson University, installed Dr. Reneau as an inaugural Alumni Fellow of the University. The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering selected Dr. Reneau as a 2000 AIMBE

Fellow. In 2002, he was awarded the Newell Perry Award by the National Federation of the Blind – the highest honor that is given by the National Federation of the Blind. In recent years, Dr. Reneau has led Louisiana Tech to the University of Louisiana System’s (ULS) highest graduation rate, highest retention rate, highest average freshman ACT score, and fastest time-to-completion rate for first-time baccalaureates as well as achieving record graduate enrollment and doctoral graduates. Dr. Reneau has led Louisiana Tech a Tier One “National University” ranking by U.S. News & World Report, as well as a designation as an SREB Doctoral Four-Year 2 Research University, a Carnegie Foundation Research University with High Research Activity (RU/H), and a “statewide university” as defined by the Louisiana Board of Regents. Louisiana Tech has been ranked in the nation’s top ten for graduating students with the least amount of debt for three consecutive years by U.S. News & World Report (2010, 2011 and 2012) and was the highest ranked Louisiana public university in mid-career median pay for graduates, according to PayScale.com (2010). Tech was also north Louisiana’s only public university to make the 2010 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. As he enters his 26th year as Louisiana Tech President, Dr. Dan Reneau continues to share his vision for moving Louisiana Tech forward and strengthen his commitment to serving the students and alumni of his University. Through Dr. Reneau’s leadership, Louisiana Tech University has transformed itself from an aspiring regional university into one of the state’s premier research institutions. Dr. Reneau is a native of Woodville, Mississippi and is married to the former Linda Digby of Bernice, whom he met as a student at Louisiana Tech. They have two children, John and Dana, who are also both Louisiana Tech alumni. John currently lives in Las Vegas and Dana lives in Baton Rouge with her husband, Jim Bernhard, and their two sons, Michael and Ben.

BRUCE VAN

DE VELDE

Joining Louisianan Tech University in the spring of 2008, Bruce Van De Velde became director of athletics on March 1, 2010 after serving as deputy director of athletics. During his initial months as director of athletics, Van De Velde led a national search and hired 2011 WAC Coach of Year Sonny Dykes. Van De Velde also initiated the largest fundraising campaign in athletic department history in the Quest for Excellence, a $20 million initiative to raise private donations to enhance athletic facilities. A veteran administrator Van De Velde has a track record of operating programs with integrity and with the student athlete as the top priority. As director of athletics at three NCAA Division I institutions, those programs have achieved no major rule infractions. This past season Louisiana Tech student athletes achieved their highest graduation success rate in University history. With Louisiana Tech’s invitation to join Conference USA in 2013 Van De Velde and his administrative team have Louisiana Tech poised to reach its highest level of achievement. “This is the dawn of a new era for Louisiana Tech University and a goal we have worked very hard over the past several years to achieve,” said Tech President Dan Reneau. “I want to publically acknowledge the efforts of Bruce Van De Velde and his team, who were instrumental in telling our story and promoting our vision for the future of Louisiana Tech Athletics.” Van De Velde has more than two decades of experience at the Division I level as a senior administrator including the University of Oklahoma, University of Missouri, Kansas State University and Utah State University. Van De Velde also has a thorough understanding of coaches and the needs of student athletes having served as an educator and coach early in his career. On the forefront of national service to intercollegiate athletics Van De Velde has served on numerous NCAA cabinets and committees including NCAA Football Issues Committee, NCAA Championship and Competition Cabinet and the Division IA Athletic Directors Executive Committee. During his tenure in the Big XII Conference he served on the Television Committee and the Conference Bowl Committee. “It is an honor to be the director of athletics at Louisiana Tech University,” Van De Velde said. “Our vision is to build a program to a level where we can be associated with universities that aspire to academic and athletic excellence at the highest level.” During his tenure Van De Velde has been instrumental in a number of accomplishments that have helped further the advancement of the University’s athletic department, including: * Leadership and strategic direction for Louisiana Tech’s invitation and transition to Conference USA from the Western Athletic Conference. * Developed and implemented the largest fund raising campaign in athletic department history. Quest for Excellence: The Campaign for Tech Athletics is a $20 million campaign to upgrade athletic facilities. * Reorganized annual giving program doubling the number of donors and increasing annual contributions to the program 140 percent; increased total contributions to intercollegiate athletics from $1.6 million in 2008 to $6 million in 2012. * Hired head football coach Sonny Dykes and head men’s basketball coach Michael White. * Upgraded ticket operations improving customer service, marketing by ecommerce and out bound sales capabilities by partnering with Ticketmaster and the Aspire Group and established a new record for football season ticket sales.

* Student-athlete graduate success rate of 71 percent in 2011 was the highest in the history of the university and one of the top graduation rates in the nation. All 16 sports programs were APR penalty free and eight programs achieved their highest APR in school history. In 2010, the Louisiana Tech athletic department was recognized nationally with the PRISM Award for excellence in athletics management under Van De Velde’s leadership. The athletic department was also honored with the Excellence in Management Cup by Texas A&M University for three consecutive years and won the NCAA Pack the House for the Western Athletic Conference five consecutive years for its marketing and promotions efforts for women’s basketball. Tech has also seen plenty of competitive success since Van De Velde’s arrival at Tech as the Bulldog football team captured the 2011 WAC championship and participated in the Poinsettia Bowl against 15th ranked TCU. The Bulldogs also captured its first bowl victory in more than 30 years with the 2008 Independence Bowl win over Northern Illinois. The Lady Techster basketball team won the 2009 and 2011 regular season Western Athletic Conference titles, and the 2010 WAC Tournament title while the women’s indoor and outdoor track and field teams won the 2009, 2010 and 2011 league titles. The Bulldog basketball team under the direction of first-year coach Mike White advanced to the program’s first ever WAC Tournament title game in 2011, defeating defending WAC Tournament champion Utah State and regular season WAC champion Nevada along the way. Numerous individual success stories have also occurred under his leadership including sprinter Antoinette Cobb earning the 2010 Honda Inspiration Award and catcher Clint Ewing becoming a finalist for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award for their work both on the field of completion and in the classroom. In 2011, track star Chelsea Hayes earned the WAC’s Joe Kearney Award while shattering numerous school records and qualified for the United States Olympic team in the long jump. Prior to Louisiana Tech Van De Velde who has an extensive background in higher education fund raising served as a development consultant at the University of Missouri during their $100 million campaign and as Director of Athletics at Iowa State University.

Van De Velde’s tenure at Iowa State University included an unprecedented five bowl appearances in six years and the highest national AP football poll ranking (9th) in school history. Iowa State’s 2001 average football attendance of 45,172 reached its highest watermark in 18 years. In 2002 and 2003, total football attendance exceeded 300,000; the most at ISU in two decades. The emergence of the Cyclone football program on a national stage with Van De Velde at the department helm was affirmed in 2002 when Iowa State was chosen to play No. 1 Florida State University in the Eddie Robinson Classic. During Van De Velde’s tenure at Iowa State, the men’s and women’s basketball teams won Big XII conference championships and participated in the 2001, 2002 and 2005 NCAA basketball tournaments. Van De Velde, with a track record for generating revenue, increased the total annual operating revenues for the Cyclone athletic department from $19.6 million to $30 million dollars over a five year period. Revenue generated from fundraising, ticket sales, marketing and corporate sponsorships, licensing, radio and television reached all-time highs during his tenure. In 2005, total fundraising increased from $4.85 million to $8.6 million and the annual giving achieved the highest membership total in its history with more than 6,000 donors participating and a record $4 million dollars in annual contributions. Under Van De Velde’s leadership, over 1,500 new donors joined the National Cyclone Club. Including capital project gifts, scholarship endowments and annual contributions, over $35 million dollars was raised during his tenure. Iowa State’s graduation rate of 89 percent for student-athletes who complete their eligibility was second in the Big XII Conference, and graduation rates for minority student-athletes more than tripled during Van De Velde’s tenure. In 2004-05, Iowa State was one of eight universities nationally to have its football team win a bowl game and have its men and women’s basketball teams participate in the NCAA tournament. The Sporting News in 2001 rated Iowa State as the seventh best athletic program among more than 115 NCAA Division I-A programs nationally. The ranking considered competitive success, graduation rates, fan support and NCAA compliance to determine national rank. During his time as athletic director at Utah State University, Van De Velde made his mark by hiring Stew Morrill as the head men’s basketball coach. Morrill has guided Utah State to nine straight postseason tournaments and is the most successful coach in the history of the Utah State program. While serving as the associate athletic director for football operations under legendary head coach Bill Snyder at Kansas State University, Van De Velde was part of the resurrection of Wildcat football in Manhattan as the program became a national power participating in five bowl games. Van De Velde was recipient of the Admiral U.S. Grant Sharp Award at the 1997 Holiday Bowl for his contributions to the Kansas State football team when the nationally ranked Wildcats finished with a 10-2 record. As the senior associate athletic for external affairs at the University of Oklahoma, Van De Velde served as a senior administrator for the athletic department and oversaw the areas of fundraising, marketing, corporate sponsorships, ticket sales, media relations and licensing. Van De Velde managed units that generated in excess of $35 million in annual revenues. Van De Velde directed the Campaign for Sooner Sports, a $100 million dollar capital campaign to fund facility improvements and scholarships. As associate athletic director for development at the University of Missouri, Van De Velde supervised a $50 million dollar capital campaign for facility improvements for the Sports Park at MU. Van De Velde received the General Robert Neyland Award from the National Football Foundation in 2005 for his service and contributions as an athletic director. Van De Velde currently serves on the 1A Athletic Directors Association Executive Committee and on the NCAA Football Issues Committee. He and his wife Debbie, who is an Kansas State alum and who serves as the development officer in the LA Tech College of Business, are the proud parents of 12-year-old daughter, Ashley who is entering the sixth grade.

MARY KAY

HUNGATE

Deputy Athletics Director/ Senior Woman Administrator Deputy Athletics Director and Senior Woman Administrator Mary Kay Hungate enters her 28th year as a member of the Louisiana Tech Athletics Department and has proven to be an integral part in the emergence of the University’s programs on the playing fields and in the classroom. Not only does Hungate serve as the sports administrator for men’s and women’s basketball, women’s soccer, softball, women’s tennis, women’s bowling and women’s volleyball, but she is also in charge of NCAA compliance for all of the university’s 16 NCAA sanctioned programs. As one of the top two ranking administrators in the Tech Athletics Department, Hungate is part of a senior staff that was instrumental in helping the University earn an invitation to join Conference USA starting July 1, 2013. In addition, Hungate and the current senior staff has also garnered a number of national awards, including the 2010 Turnkey PRISM Award which recognizes colleges for managerial excellence across four areas: marketing/branding; fan development; community relations; and customer/client service. The Tech athletics department has also finished in the Top 10 three of the past four years in the Excellence in Management Cup, which recognizes the most efficient athletic departments in the nation. Hungate serves a vital role in the hiring of coaches. Hungate proved instrumental in the decision by former Tech Kodak All-American and WNBA All-Star Teresa Weatherspoon - who played for Hungate in the late-80s - to return to Louisiana Tech in June of 2008. Weatherspoon was promoted to head coach in February of 2009 where she has led the program to a trifecta of Western Athletic Conference titles and two straight NCAA Tournament appearances. She also served as the point person in the hiring process of head women’s soccer coach Kevin Sherry. Sherry led the Lady Techster soccer team to four straight winning seasons (the first ones in program history), the program’s first ever WAC victories and its first appearance in the WAC Tournament in 2010. Another of Hungate’s responsibilities includes overseeing the academic side of the Tech athletics department, another area which has improved drastically as proven by the fact LA Tech’s graduation rate continues to be one of the highest in the state (Federal Graduation Report). This past year Tech student-athletes boasted an all-time high 72 percent four-year graduation success rate while a total of 92 studentathletes earned Academic All-WAC accolades. Tech football was recognized nationally with the Academic Achievement Award presented by the American Football Coaches Association while the Bulldog golf team earned an NCAA Public Recognition Award. For the fourth consecutive year, Louisiana Tech saw impressive improvements in the majority of its Academic Progress Rates (APR) as all 16 of its NCAA sanctioned programs are penalty free for the second consecutive year. Louisiana Tech saw nine of its programs record their highest multi-year APR scores ever while five registered their highest single year APR score ever. Four of the programs also earned a perfect 1,000 score on the single year rate. Hungate also plays an important role in LA Tech’s NCAA Certification process. As a member of the Steering Committee and the liaison between the athletic department and the University’s Self Study Committees, she provides the information needed for the committees to write their reports. In 2006, LA Tech completed its second NCAA Certification cycle and once again was certified without conditions. Hungate joined the Louisiana Tech staff in 1985 as an assistant women’s basketball coach and remained in that role for five years. During that time, the Lady Techsters participated in four Final Fours and won the NCAA National Championship in 1988. In 1990, Hungate made a move out of coaching and became as-

During her time at Louisiana Tech, Beasley has proven her merit as she has been directly and indirectly associated with numerous department awards. Since its inception by the NCAA in 2007, Beasley has taken the lead on Louisiana Tech’s participation in the NCAA’s Pack the House Challenge - a marketing promotion geared towards increasing the awareness of women’s basketball across the country. Beasley’s creative marketing campaigns have helped LA Tech earn the top spot among the Western Athletic Conference schools for five straight years, making it the only program in the country to win it every time for their respective league. Her 2010 NCAA Pack the House marketing campaign of “Cage the Tigers” won the bronze award given out by NACDA for the Best Single Day Attendance Promotion. The past two years, Beasley’s 2011 NCAA Pack the House marketing campaign of “FAIR-well Fresno” and “FAIR-well Fresno State: The Rematch” drew crowds of more than 7,000 fans to the Thomas Assembly Center as promotions included a real live Fair with carnival rides and food outside the Thomas Assembly Center. Beasley has also been a part of a staff at LA Tech that has been instrumental in garnering a number of national awards, including the 2010 Turnkey PRISM Award - which recognizes colleges for managerial excellence across four areas: marketing/branding; fan development; community relations; and customer/client service. The Tech Athletics Department has also finished in the Top 10 the past three years in the Excellence in Management Cup, which recognizes the most efficient athletic departments in the nation. Beasley also served as the athletic department’s point person for Bulldogs Tackling Breast Cancer, a fundraiser started by Dr. Allison Dooley, wife of former LA Tech AD and head football coach Derek Dooley in 2007. During its five years, this fundraising campaign raised more than $50,000 for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Foundation in northeast Louisiana. This past year, Beasley was instrumental in the inaugural Wiggin’ Out Dinner as Tech Athletics teamed up with the Northern Louisiana Medical Center and The Minute Magazine to raise money for the battle against breast cancer. The event, held in conjunction with the Bulldogs Tackling Breast Cancer initiative, helped raise funds for women across northern Louisiana unable to purchase wigs while undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatments. Beasley also serves on several campus and conference committees, including the WAC’s Championships Committee and Game Management Committee, and the University’s Marketing Advisory Board, Spirit Squad Committee and Traditions Committee. She is also the WAC’s representative to NACMA.
