Lady Techster Softball Complex

The Lady Techster Softball Complex has been home to Louisiana Tech softball since its construction in 1982 and this past summer it received the first phase of some much-needed renovations. As part of a continued effort to improve its athletic facilities and in preparation for hosting the 2013 Western Athletic Conference championships, the University and athletics department have committed to making the necessary improvements in order to prepare for the event. Included in the first phase of the improvements that were made this past summer was the replacement of the existing wooden fence surrounding the facility with a new chain link fence that is covered on the inside with padding. An on-going issue of poor drainage on the field was also be rectified with the installation of a new subsurface drainage system underneath a new synthetic turf that was installed in front of both dugouts and behind home plate. Synthetic turf was also installed in both bullpens, while the entire outfield benefits from the installation of a new irrigation system. Aesthetically, the bleachers also received a facelift as a new wrap was designed by Donnie Bell Design and was installed in mid-August. The wrap covers the outside of the existing bleachers and honors a number of Tech’s all-conference selections in the last decade, the NCAA Tournament and Women’s College World Series teams as well as the Lady Techsters 2008 WAC Championship team. Additionally, a wrap was designed and installed on the outside of the outfield fence, which also recognizes Tech’s NCAA Tournament and College World Series teams and honors Tech’s three All-Americans in Debbie Nichols, Stacey Johnson and LeeAnn Jarvis. These renovations come just a few years after a new brick backstop matching the brick dugouts was constructed behind home plate in 2005 adding to the overall look of the stadium. In 2008, a new electronic Fair-Play Model Softball Scoreboard was installed.

Future plans call for the construction of a press box, a hitting facility and new bleachers. During the course of the Lady Techsters’ 29-year history of playing at the facility, Tech has posted an overall mark of 367-184, including 21 winning seasons. During its run to the 2008 NCAA Tournament, LA Tech posted a mark of 16-12 at home including victories over Top 25 Fresno State and SEC foe Ole Miss. The 16 home victories were the most since the 1996 season when that Lady Techster team was a perfect 16-0 at home. In 2009, LA Tech repeated the feat defeating both Fresno State and Ole Miss at home while also posting victories against Hawaii. Built at a cost of $200,000 under the supervision of former head coach Bill Galloway and former Tech President F. Jay Taylor, the 1,000-seat facility boasts brickwalled dugouts, wooden lockers, lights, batting cage and electronic scoreboard. The natural grass turf extends 190 feet down the foul lines and 220 feet to straightaway centerfield, reaching the fence running along the outfield. At the time of its completion in the early ’80s, it was considered one of the finest softball facilities in the country as the nationally-ranked Louisiana Tech squads drew large crowds. The complex has been home to some of the nation’s top teams and players during its history as it housed three Louisiana Tech College World Series teams and six more NCAA Tournament squads and five All-Americans. In Galloway’s first season, he led Tech to a record of 52-18 and the first of three trips to the College World Series, and the tradition of winning and dominance throughout the 1980s began. Louisiana Tech reached the NCAA playoffs the next six seasons, including College World Series appearances in 1985 and 1986.

College World Series Appearances: 1982, 1985, 1986 NCAA Tournament Appearances: 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1995, 2008

2012 Season Outlook After three straight winning seasons which included a 2008 Western Athletic Conference Tournament title and appearance in the NCAA Tournament, Louisiana Tech found itself in an unusual place heading into the final weekend of the 2011 regular season – on the brink of not qualifying for the league postseason tournament for the first time ever. However, despite the struggles of an up-and-down season, Dawson and Co. won two out of three on the road against Utah State during the final weekend to secure the sixth and final spot in the 2011 WAC Tournament in Fresno, Calif. With senior pitcher Meghan Krieg winding down her recordsetting career, the Lady Techsters rode the arm of the Sonora, Texas native upsetting host and eventual NCAA Tournament participant Fresno State in the first day of the event. Tech played its best ball of the year in the tournament posting two wins before falling 3-2 in 13 innings to No. 2 seed Boise State and 1-0 to Fresno State in the third day of the tournament. “The 2011 season was a real challenge for our program,” Dawson said. “We had a tough schedule and had lost a number of key players from the previous year. Going into the season we knew it was going to be a rebuilding year but even with that expectation it was still difficult. “There were times when our defense wouldn’t hold up, others when our bats went silent. But with our back against the wall going into the final week of conference play, the girls gutted out two wins on the road to qualify for the sixth straight conference tournament. “Behind the strong arm of Meghan in the circle, our seniors’ never-die mentality and a selfless attitude on the part of the rest of the team, we marched into the conference tournament and put together four of the best games we had played all season.” Despite a final 17-39 record, it was a late-season run and never-give-up attitude that Dawson was most proud of. “The lessons we learned last season are still fresh in the returners’ minds,” Dawson said. “They have a clear picture of what a team working together can accomplish. The challenge for this year’s squad is to recapture that spirit. This season we have another difficult schedule along with different personnel who will play different roles. We will need to learn to cooperate in a way that will see our team goals realized.” Tech’s non-conference schedule will be one of the toughest it has ever faced as the Lady Techsters will play 20 games against NCAA Tournament teams and will play 27 of their first 29 games away from Ruston. Dawson and Co. open the season Feb. 10 when they travel to Baton Rouge to face NCAA Tournament teams LSU, Michigan and Penn State in a three-day tournament. The Lady Techsters 57-game slate also consists of tournaments at UL-Lafayette, Auburn, Mississippi State and Southern Miss as well as a home game against Ole Miss and a road doubleheader at WCWS participant Baylor. LA Tech’s WAC schedule might be tougher than the non-conference slate with three games each against NCAA Tournament teams BYU, Fresno State and New Mexico State and three more against Hawaii, which advanced to the WCWS in 2010.

Pitchers

Without a doubt the biggest challenge that the Lady Techsters face this season is replacing the right arm of Krieg, who ended her career ranked No. 2 in Tech history and No. 3 in WAC history with 859 strikeouts.

Krieg was the workhorse last season, logging 247 of Tech’s 378.1 innings of work in the circle, including throwing every pitch (527) during the Lady Techsters Western Athletic Conference Tournament run. “Meghan’s graduation will have a huge effect on both our pitching staff and how we approach pitching this season,” Dawson said. “When we set our team goals, creating a pitching staff was at the top of the list. It was great to see our returning pitchers recognize their need to step forward and contribute in a big way this season.” Dawson will have depth in the circle in 2012 with five arms to choose from this season; however, the key will be the emergence of a solid No. 1 and No. 2 and the acceptance of everyone’s role on the staff. M i ch e l l e Jones and Janna Frandrup are the most experienced pitchers on the roster as the juniors have both logged starts and relief appearances during their first two seasons in Lady Techster uniforms. Frandrup, who earned second team all-WAC honors as a utility last year, registered a 1-3 mark in the circle with a 4.72 earned run average in 12 appearances. Her victory came in impressive fashion, tossing a complete-game shutout in a 1-0 win over defending College World Series appearance participant Hawaii. “Janna will continue to work out of the bullpen,” Dawson said. “She has a lot of other responsibilities on this team on offense and at first base, but she adds a different look for the opponents’ batters.” Due to a couple of rough outings against top 25 teams LSU and Texas A&M, Jones’ numbers weren’t what she would have liked for them to be last year, registering a 3-5 record with a 7.34 ERA in 12 appearances. However, in her other 10 outings (minus LSU and A&M), she registered a 4.65 ERA, including wins over Ole Miss, Butler and Texas-Arlington. “Most people know her to be our starting shortstop from last season, but she had a great fall for us and continues to give consistent performances,” Dawson said. “Michelle has worked hard in the weight room and has improved her strength. You really see it show when she is on the mound.” Sophomore Erin Kipp returns for her second season after a rookie campaign that saw her post a 1-7 mark with a 5.72 earned run average. In 15 appearances in the circle, Kipp made

LOUISIANA TECH

After playing the majority of last season with only one catcher due to the injury to now-sophomore Tricia Van Winkle, Dawson has the luxury heading into this year of having three legitimate backstops on the roster. “Last year our catching depth was very shallow and after one major injury we were down to one body to do all of the work,” Dawson said. “This year we have a number of girls who are able to manage the game and lead the defense behind the plate.” Wearing the “tools of ignorance” for the Lady Techsters this year will be senior Allie Geisler, Van Winkle and freshman Alayna Kipp. Geisler took a beating behind the plate last year after Van Winkle went down with an ankle injury just over a month into the season as the Leander, Texas native caught 44 games, including 27 straight to close the year. Despite her incredible workload, Geisler was solid all season, recording a .264 batting average with a team-high six home runs and 23 RBI. Geisler showed a great eye at the plate, walking 24 times while striking out only 18. She hit two home runs and drove in four in a win at Nevada on April 1 and then set the program single-game record with five hits in the Lady Techster’s 3-2 extra inning loss to Boise State in the WAC Tournament. “Allie is one of three seniors and last year she had a break out year,” Dawson said. “She earned herself a spot in the fourhole in our lineup and really grew into the role of the leader we needed. In her last season we will continue to rely on her leadership on defense and her experience with this young pitching

staff. Her offensive production will be critical to our success as well. With the additional depth at catcher, Allie may see some time in the outfield as well.” Van Winkle saw limited action after suffering the ankle injury March 19 at Southeastern Louisiana as she recorded six hits in 34 at bats during the season. The biggest moment of her rookie campaign came early in the year when she recorded two hits and three RBI, including the game-tying solo home in the bottom of the seventh, in an extra inning loss to Western Kentucky. “Tricia served as a backup to Allie last season until an injury finished her season prematurely,” Dawson said. “I expect Tricia to see most of her playing time at third base or as our designated player.” According to Dawson, Kipp, who is the younger sister of sophomore pitcher Erin Kipp, brings all the God-given tools to be the next great Louisiana Tech catcher. The former Bullard High School star helped lead the Panthers the past four years while earning District 17-3A Offensive MVP honors as a sophomore and senior. She earned first team all-state honors as both a sophomore and a senior (she did not play softball her junior year). “Alayna has all of the tools to be a really great catcher,” Dawson said. “She has a great senior to learn from, and we will be able to bring her along this season as she is ready for more responsibility. Alayna rivals her sister’s strength, and it is exciting to have that kind of explosive power in our line-up. She may also see time at third base.”

Infield

Louisiana Tech has two holes to fill on the infield with the graduation of four-year starting second baseman Heather Doiron and two-year starting third baseman Molly Goza. Dawson does return plenty of experience at both shortstop and first base with the players such as Janna Frandrup, Michelle Jones, Meghan Knowles and Emma Eichman. “There were two holes in the infield to fill this fall,” Dawson said. “We have a great mix of experience as well as some talented newcomers. This group’s depth has really brought out the best in each other, and they have jelled well as a unit. I look for these girls to make major strides in us becoming a better defensive team.” One area that the Tech infield will have to improve on is defensively where the Lady Techsters combined to make 49 errors in 2011.

nine starts. Her most impressive start came in her college debut when she picked up the complete-game win, allowing only five hits and one run while striking out four against Bowling Green. “Erin really came in this fall on a mission,” Dawson said. “Her freshman season was a tough adjustment for her, but she has found her confidence and continues to work on both the physical and mental aspects of pitching. Ask any of the girls on the team and they will say Erin is one of the most competitive, driven and strongest players on the team. When she is focused she is successful in most everything she does. Erin will see some time in the outfield as well.” A couple of newcomers will also see action in the circle for Tech in junior Mel Goff and freshman Savannah Dollar. Goff played two years at Grossmont College where she helped lead the program to the Pacific Coast Conference championship both years. During her two seasons, she was 43-13 in the circle with a sub-2.00 ERA while earning the PCC Pitcher of the Year accolades and first team all-state honors both years. “Mel is new to us this season as a transfer,” Dawson said. “Her strength is that she already has two years of college experience under her belt. She wasn’t able to play this fall so I am excited to see her in that situation this spring. Mel is a great competitor and wants to make an impact on this team.” Dollar is a freshman out of West Monroe High School who played both first base and pitched for the Lady Rebels while leading the program to the District 2-5A title three straight years. As a senior, she was 25-6 in the circle with a 2.15 earned run average with 162 strikeouts in 182 innings of work. She earned the district MVP honor as both a sophomore and a senior. “Savannah has come such a long way in a short amount of time,” Dawson said. “There were some mechanics that needed changing when she got to Tech, but she has been open to these adjustments and has made them in such a short time. I feel she will be able to contribute to our pitching staff this spring. She is a very bright girl that will do anything to improve. As a coach you can’t ask for more than that.”

First Base

First base is one of the most experienced positions on the Tech team as Dawson returns juniors Meghan Knowles and Janna Frandrup, who have both seen significant playing time during their first two seasons. The duo split the 56 games last year with each one starting 28 contests at first base (Knowles started 28 at DP while Frandrup started 23 at DP). Frandrup could see action all of the Tech infield, including first, second and shortstop while also seeing plenty of innings in the circle. The second team all-Western Athletic Conference honoree batted .292 with eight doubles, five home runs and 22 RBI last season. Her .455 slugging percentage and .421 on-base percentage both led the team as she walked 30 times while only striking out 18 times. The Phoenix native started the season by hitting safely in eight of the first nine games and ranked second on the team with 10 multi-hit performances. She finished the season registering hits in five of her last seven ABs. “Janna split time at first base last season,” Dawson said. “She is one of our vocal leaders on our team, and she makes her presence known when she is on defense. We look for Janna to be in the heart of our order again this year. She is a very consistent hitter who continues to get stronger at the plate.” Knowles will look to return to her form of her freshman campaign after struggling at times during her sophomore season. After batting .287 as a freshman, Knowles hit only .224 last year with eight doubles, four home runs and 20 RBI. However, her struggles at the plate didn’t affect her defense as she committed only one error and recorded a .995 fielding percentage. “Meghan also split time at first last year, and she also gives us a left-handed glove at first,” Dawson said. “She had surgery in the off-season and is back to full strength. She has worked diligently on her hitting and has made great strides in becoming a more complete hitter.” Knowles led Tech with seven multi-RBI games and recorded the longest hitting streak of any Lady Techster during the season with an eight-game streak in the latter half of the year.

Second Base

Lost to graduation is four-year starting second baseman Heather Doiron who started all 56 games last year and 193 during her LA Tech career. Thus, the Lady Techsters will now rely on junior college transfer Amanda Krueger and Frandrup to anchor the position. Krueger comes to Ruston after playing the past two seasons at the College of the Siskiyous in California where she led the program to the league championship both years. She was named first team all-Golden Valley Conference twice while batting .390 with 57 hits, 51 runs and 22 RBI in 2011. “Amanda is another one of our transfers and we look for her to be the same type of mainstay at second that Heather was the last four years,” Dawson said. “Amanda has great range and a solid glove on defense, and we look for her to fill our two-hole in the lineup. Amanda is a fighter who gives you everything she has until that final out is made.” Krueger was a two-time all-state performer during the prep career at Scappoose High School in Oregon and was named the Cawapa League MVP as a junior and senior. While Krueger will see the majority of the time at second base, Frandrup could also provide quality depth at the position. “In addition to her role at first, Janna also has the flexibility to play second base,” Dawson said.

Shortstop

Another experienced position in the Tech infield will be

at shortstop where both starting junior Michelle Jones and sophomore Emma Eichman return this season. After not seeing any time at the position as a freshman, Jones made 43 starts at shortstop as a sophomore where she showed signs of a promising career at the position. Despite committing 15 errors in 176 chances (.921 fielding percentage), Dawson was pleased with the progress and growth she saw in Jones. “Michelle was a real consistent performer for us at shortstop,” Dawson said. “I look for her to continue to be a solid fielder for us. It was great to see her growth throughout the season. She has a nonchalant way about her, but don’t let that fool you. When the game is on the line, she is the one I want to make the play.” At the plate Jones struggled, batting only .118 with nine runs and five RBI. However, she led the Lady Techsters with 13 sacrifices on the season, including a team-high in sacrifice flies (3) and sacrifice bunts (10). As a true freshman, Eichman saw limited action, making 12 starts while seeing action in only 16 games. However, with Jones’ pitching responsibilities increasing this season, Eichman could see significantly more time in the field. Dawson said that she feels confident especially with the vast improvement that the youngster has made during the off-season. “If we gave out this award Emma would be my most improved player returning from last year’s squad,” Dawson said. “She did a lot of work on the mental side of this game over the summer and is in a great position to contribute this season. She is a more consistent performer on defense, but I think her improvement at the plate even trumps that. It is exciting to see a player’s hard work and dedication pay off. We look for Emma to contribute as Michelle’s pitching role expands.”

Third Base

A couple of youngsters will look to solidify the hot corner this season as two-year starting third baseman Molly Goza graduated following her final season in a Lady Techster uniform. Sophomore Tricia Van Winkle and true freshmen Hailey Winter and Alayna Kipp will compete for playing time this season with none of them having a college start at the position. Van Winkle saw her season cut short last year after an ankle injury just a month into the season. All 12 of Van Winkle’s starts as a freshman came at catcher but she will see playing tie at both positions as a sophomore. “During her shortened season last year, Tricia got a little

Louisiana Tech will boast the most depth in the outfield that it has seen in quite some time with nine players vying for starts this season. Included in the mix are seven returners and two newcomers as Dawson will have a plethora of options throughout the season. “Every outfielder from last year’s squad returns again for 2012, but with the addition of a transfer and a freshman we have added some much needed depth,” Dawson said. Senior Kendra Harmon, freshman Janine Godwin and sophomore Rachel Allday will handle the duties in left field this season as the two-year starter Harmon will help the rookie Godwin and the second-year Allday in their transition into the college ranks. Harmon made 52 starts in the outfield last season with 41 coming in right field, four in centerfield and seven in left field. The Holden, Louisiana native batted .275 on the season with six doubles, one triple and one memorable game-winning home run in a 1-0 victory over Hawaii.

to be our leadoff hitter this season. Her ability to get things started is a key for our offense. This is the strongest I have seen Kendra, and I look for her to have a great senior season.” The lefthanded Harmon is a tough out at the top of the lineup as she ranked in the Top 10 in the WAC last year in putting the ball in play, striking out only 17 times in 193 plate appearances. Harmon led Tech with 11 multi-hit games and her 12-game on-base streak was the longest by any Lady Techster during the season. Allday saw action in 12 games as a freshman, most of them coming in a pinch runner role. She did earn three at-bats and scored three runs during her first year in a Lady Techster uniform. “Rachel adds depth for us in outfield,” Dawson said. “Valuable pinch runner for us last year and continue to play a role as a pinch runner. She has a great team attitude.” Allday had a solid fall season for the Lady Techsters, batting .387 with five RBI and five runs scored. Godwin signed with Tech after an impressive prep career at Princeton High School in Texas where she played both second base and centerfield while leading the program to three straight district titles. “Janine is another one of our freshmen that joined us this season,” Dawson said. “She has come in ready to accept the challenge of playing at the collegiate level. Janine has great speed and a great arm especially when you consider her size. She has a number of weapons from the left side of the plate and her speed can also be utilized off the bench. With her attitude and Godgiven ability, I know she will have a great career in this program.” During her final two years in high school, Godwin batted over .400 with 43 stolen bases while earning all-district honors four straight seasons. She was also the district champion in the 100-meter hurdles and a regional finalist in 2009. Senior Charday Wilson and junior college transfer Dacia Hale will man centerfield this season. Although Wilson started 37 games in CF last season, Hale is the odds-on favorite to be the opening day centerfielder while Wilson will also be utilized off the bench as a pinch runner with her impressive speed. Hale comes to Ruston after spending the past two years playing at the College of the Siskiyous where she led the team to the league championship in both 2010 and 2011. She was named first team all-Golden Valley Conference twice while batting .375 with 18 doubles, 37 RBI and 57 runs last year. “Dacia comes to us as a transfer from a very well-coached program, and I look for her to have an immediate impact this season,” Dawson said. “She has all of the physical attributes of a centerfielder, and I am excited about her addition to our outfield.

time at third base,” Dawson said. “With the graduation of Molly we will need someone to step in as the everyday starter at third. Tricia has worked hard at her range at third and continues to understand her swing better on the offensive end. She is a smart player and at a position that doesn’t offer a lot of reaction time, this can be a real asset.” Van Winkle collected seven hits in 38 at bats but showed some power with two doubles and two home runs. Winter signed with the Lady Techsters out of Marcus High School in Flower Mound, Texas where she played outfield and all four infield positions during her prep career. She was named the District 8-5A Defensive Player of the Year as a senior while earning all-district honors as both a junior and senior. “Hailey brings a lot of life and energy to our squad and keeps things pretty light,” Dawson said. “She has made a good transition to college softball. She is like a sponge that just soaks up as much information as possible in order to be the best she can be. I am excited about the offensive production we saw out of Hailey this fall. She seemed to really excel in pressure situations.” Kipp will also see some time at third base when she is not catching or serving as the designated player.

LOUISIANA TECH She is a very hard worker and expects a lot out of herself.” During her high school career at Glencoe High School in Hillsboro, Oregon, she led the program to three straight state runner-up titles and was the California Class 5A state player of the year in 2009. Wilson returns for her second and final season as a Lady Techster as the speedy outfielder saw significant playing time last year after signing out of Bossier Parish Community College. “Charday is our third senior on this year’s squad,” Dawson said. “As a transfer last year she did a great job for us defensively in the outfield. Charday’s speed is something special, and I look for her to contribute to depth in the outfield as well as a pinch runner.” Wilson struggled offensively at times last year, batting .176 with 22 hits and 14 runs scored on the year. She was successful on putting down nine sacrifice bunts and also swiped six bases in nine attempts. Right field will be crowded for LA Tech as four different players will see some playing time this season. Senior Allie Geisler and a trio of sophomores including Katelynn Hill, Erin Kipp and Cassie Krieg will all share responsibilities as both Geisler and Kipp have roles behind the plate and in the circle. Krieg, who is the younger sister of the now-graduated record-setting Meghan Krieg, returns for her second season after leading the Lady Techsters with a .300 batting average as a freshman. “Cassie had a very successful freshman season, and we look for her to build on that success,” Dawson said. “She continues to work on consistency at the plate and her improvement on defense is obvious. Cassie worked hard over the summer to improve her speed which only helps her on the defensive end.” After getting off to a red-hot start last season, Krieg missed some time due to injury as she started 20 games in right field and one at the DP position. She recorded 21 hits in 70 at bats with two doubles and one mammoth home run at Utah State. Hill came on strong at the end of the season for Louisiana Tech after making the switch from second base to the outfield. After being used mostly in a pinch running role for the majority of the season, Hill exploded onto the scene in the final weekend of the regular season. “Katelynn really came on strong for us at the end of last season,” Dawson said. “It has been great to see her continue to make strides during the fall. I see Katelynn challenging for starting time in our outfield. She showed this fall that she can be an offensive threat we have to have in our line-up.” After recording only one hit in 11 at bats through the first 49 games, Hill hit safely in six of the last seven games, going 9-for-23 with one double, one triple and one home run and four RBI. Geisler (see catchers) will also see some time in right field along with Erin Kipp, who batted .184 as a freshman. However, Kipp – like Hill – showed tremendous progress at the plate late in the season, recording all six of her RBI in her final eight at bats of the year. Kipp’s two-run home run off of all-WAC pitcher Michelle Moses gave the Lady Techsters a 2-0 win over Fresno State in the WAC Tournament.

Head Coach

Since Sarah Dawson’s arrival on the Louisiana Tech campus a decade ago, the former All-American pitcher has built the Lady Techster softball program back into a respected and competitive member of one of the toughest non-AQ softball leagues in the country. On a yearly basis the Western Athletic Conference places multiple teams in the Top 25 and NCAA tournament, including a league-record four in 2008 – the year that Dawson led the Lady Techsters to the WAC Tournament title in Hawaii and to its first NCAA Tournament since the mid-90s. After inheriting a program in 2003 that had suffered through three straight losing seasons, Dawson slowly began to build it back into shape on the diamond. The rebuilding process wasn’t easy and it wasn’t fast, but it finally paid dividends in Dawson’s sixth year when the Lady Techsters recorded a 37-29 record – the first winning mark in a decade. That 2008 season culminated with Tech’s remarkable run to the WAC Tournament title – the first ever by the Lady Techsters – as Dawson and Co. traveled to Honolulu as the No. 4 seed and responded by winning four one-run games in four days over four Top 25 teams (Hawaii, Fresno State and Nevada twice). When the final our was recorded in the championship game win over No. 1 seed and 17th ranked Nevada, the Lady Techsters exploded out of the dugout … just like they had exploded onto the postseason scene. They were far from done though with their memorable run. Dawson and the Techsters were sent to College Station as the No. 3 seed and promptly upset SEC foe and No. 2 seed Auburn twice before falling to eventual national runner-up Texas A&M in the championship game. It was the start of a three-year run that saw LA Tech register winning records and fourth-place regular season finishes in the highly-competitive WAC – including back-to-back seasons with winning records in league play. Even while struggling through a 17-39 mark last year – snapping Tech’s streak of three-straight winning seasons – the Lady Techsters showed a never-die attitude under Dawson’s leadership. After qualifying for their sixth straight WAC Tournament appearance on the very last day of the regular season – Tech is one of only four teams to qualify for six straight WAC Tournaments – the Lady Techsters entered the event as the No. 6 seed. Tech responded and shocked everyone by defeating the host and No. 3 seed and eventual NCAA Tournament participant Fresno State 2-0 in the opening game. The Lady Techsters then found themselves in a position to knock off No. 2 seed Boise State the next day but eventually fell 3-2 in a 13-inning marathon. However, Tech wouldn’t go quietly as it defeated Utah State later that night and returned to the diamond for Day 3 of the event before falling 1-0 to Fresno State, ending the Techsters bid for another magical run like that of 2008. While shattering numerous team and individual offensive records, Louisiana Tech has recorded an impressive four-year run as Dawson continues to rebuild a program that participated in numerous college world series and NCAA Tournaments during the 1980s and early ‘90s. Dawson has done it by recruiting her type of players and molding them into winners - both on and off the diamond. During Dawson’s tenure at LA Tech, the Lady Techsters have boasted some impressive results ... on the field, in the classroom and around the community. On the field, Tech has: • recorded a quartet of top-four finishes in the highly-competitive Western Athletic Conference, including back-to-back-to-back fourth place finishes during a three-year stretch. • captured the 2008 WAC Tournament title, defeating four Top 25 ranked teams in four days (Tech has posted eight wins over Top 25 teams in the last four years). • earned a berth in the 2008 NCAA Tournament where it defeated SEC foe Auburn twice before eventually falling to national runner-up Texas A&M. It was Tech’s first NCAA Tournament since 1995. • finished ranked 33rd in the country in the 2008 USA Today/NFCA Division I poll. • placed 27 players on the All-Western Athletic Conference team, including 16 first teamers. • placed 33 players on the Louisiana Sports Writers all-state team, including 12 first teamers. • seen shortstop Amberly Waits become the first LA Tech player to ever win the WAC Player of the Year Award (2009). Waits was also named the LSWA State Hitter of the Year. • seen pitcher Meghan Krieg shatter numerous single season records, including setting the Techster single season strikeout record (289 in 2011) and career strikeout record (859). The 859 strikeouts also ranks as the third most in WAC history. • seen Tech record eight of the top nine seasons in home runs, including shattering the program record with 59 home runs in 2009 ( Tech ranked 19th in the country in home runs per game). Off the field, Tech has: • had 38 student-athletes earn a total of 80 Academic All-WAC awards, including 10 in 2011 • posted its best Academic Progress Rate (APR) ever with a 1000 in 2008-09. • recorded hundreds of community service hours, including raising more than $14,000 for the local chapter of DART with the charity softball game against Fresno State in 2009 and 2011. Dawson, now 14 years removed from her playing days where she was an All-American pitcher at Northeast Louisiana (now Louisiana-Monroe), works tirelessly as a head coach to help mold her players into great softball players, top-notch students and first class citizens. Part of Dawson’s philosophy involves getting her players actively involved in service projects so they learn how to be an integral part of their community. During her time at Tech, Dawson’s players have averaged over 200 hours of community service, ranging from visiting nursing homes, working with area churches and helping with the Louisiana Tech student-athlete Halloween carnival. In addition to community service projects, Dawson incorporates the NCAA’s CHAMPS/Lifeskills Leadership Program on a regular basis with her team. Throughout the school year, Dawson arranges speakers to talk to her players about such topics as domestic violence, drugs and alcohol, sexual responsibility, interviewing skills, and other areas that will impact their lives. Dawson and her coaching staff along with the players instituted a recycling program in the Louisiana Tech Athletic Department.

Dawson Year-by-Year

YTLA ISR TECH EVINU

Dawson also emphasizes education, and it has paid off during her tenure at Louisiana Tech. During the previous nine years at Tech, a total of 38 of LA Tech’s student-athletes have earned a total of 80 Academic All-Western Athletic Conference honors, ranking among the most in the league during that time. The team also recorded its highest single year Academic Progress Rate (APR) score ever with a 1000 for the 2008-09 season. Dawson, who has compiled a 215-305 record at Tech in her nine years, has also had a positive effect on her players on the playing field during her time at Louisiana Tech. Dawson’s competitive spirit rubs off on her players. She brings that competitiveness and dedication that helped her garner success as a collegiate and professional player to the Louisiana Tech program. Twenty-seven of her players have earned all-Western Athletic Conference honors, including at least one every year and a program-record five in 2009. Former shortstop Amberly Waits became the first LA Tech player to ever earn the WAC Player of the Year award as she was an easy selection in 2009 after winning the WAC Triple Crown (led league in average, home runs and RBI). Dawson has also had 33 of her players named to the Louisiana Sports Writers Association all-state team, including Waits who was named the 2009 Hitter of the Year and outfielder Emma Barnes was named the state Freshman of the Year in 2006. Dawson’s effect on her players can be seen in a number of different ways, including their lives following college. Three of her former players are currently or have coached in the Division ranks including current Tech assistant Amber Miles as well as Marla Pinkston and Eric Chernicky. Prior to coming to Louisiana Tech in 2003, Dawson served as an assistant coach at UL-Monroe from 2000 through 2002 and at Marshall University in 1999. During her four years in the circle at UL-Monroe, she produced some incredibly impressive numbers that still rank on the NCAA Division I alltime single season and career records list. In her career, Dawson amassed a record of 120-56 while registering 151 complete games, 1,242.1 innings pitched, 1,280 strikeouts and 74 career shutouts. Her complete games, innings pitched, strikeouts and career shutouts all ranked in the top 10 in NCAA Division I history while her 120 career wins ranked sixth. In 1997 during her senior season at UL-Monroe, Dawson earned a spot on the Louisville Slugger NCAA Division I All-American first team. During that year Dawson registered 446 strikeouts in 400.2 innings while recording 50 complete games in only 54 starts and amassing a record of 45-10. She still holds the school record for career victories, lowest earned run average (0.69), inning pitched, strikeouts, shutouts, games pitched, games started and complete games. She continued to be successful after her collegiate career, joining the Women’s Professional Fast-pitch League in the summer of 1997, where she earned the first year league’s inaugural Most Valuable Player award, ranking No. 1 in wins (30) and saves (4) and second in shutouts, complete games, earned run average and opponent’s batting average. Dawson earned her bachelor’s degree in finance from UL-Monroe in 1998.

Assistant Coach

Brad Kerr returns for his third season as a member of the Louisiana Tech softball coaching staff serving as the Lady Techsters hitting instructor. Kerr joined head coach Sarah Dawson and assistant coach Amber Miles prior to the 2010 season and promptly helped the Lady Techsters record the program’s third straight winning season as LA Tech posted a 26-21 mark, including an 11-10 record in the highly-competitive Western Athletic Conference. Under Kerr’s direction at the plate, Louisiana Tech recorded the second highest home run total in the program history totaling 43 as departed seniors Amberly Waits and Kylie Bassett both hit 10 each - the third most in the Lady Techster record books. Waits also recorded one of the most prolific seasons in Lady Techster history, batting .412 with 10 home runs, 31 RBI, 97 total bases and 40 runs scored. In his second season as a member of the staff, Kerr helped groom some up and coming freshmen as Cassie Krieg, Katelynn Hill and Erin Kipp all showed great strides at the plate late in the season. The trio combined to bat .410 with four home runs and 13 RBI over the final seven games of the season. Junior utility Janna Frandrup also had her most productive season at the plate earning second team all-WAC honors and first team all-state accolades. Kerr joined the Tech family after spending a year as an assistant varsity coach at Henley High School in Klamath, Oregon, where he worked for Dawson’s sister Ruth Strauch. He helped lead the program to the Oregon State Athletic Association Class 4A state championship game appearance. The 30-year-old was instrumental in developing a team that recorded a .355 batting average while eight players were named to the all-conference team and eight were named to the all-state squad. Kerr also spent two summers as an assistant coach with the Missoula Mavericks, one of the top American Legion baseball programs in the northwest where he helped lead them to back-to-back Western AA Conference championship titles. During those two seasons, the program had eight players named to the Western AA All-Conference team and five more named to the all-state team. In all, Kerr has coached seven players that have moved on to play collegiate baseball or softball. Kerr earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Montana in 2005 where he graduated with honors.

2012 LADY TECHSTER SOFTBALL

Every successful program needs stability on its coaching staff and fifth-year assistant Amber Miles continues to provide that and much more for head coach Sarah Dawson and the Louisiana Tech Lady Techsters. During her first four years on the staff, it’s no coincidence that the Lady Techsters recorded back-to-back-to-back winning seasons (the first in a decade) and the program’s first trip to the NCAA Tournament since 1995. The former Louisiana Tech record-setting centerfielder returned to her alma mater in July of 2007 after a year away from Ruston. Less than one year later, the Lady Techsters were basking in the glory of the 2008 WAC Tournament title and a trip to the NCAA Tournament thanks in large part to Miles’ enthusiasm, hard work and dedication. Within two years of her returning to LA Tech, all three of the starting outfielders for the Lady Techsters earned AllWAC honors as Emma Barnes and Krissi Oliver were named to the all-conference team in 2008 and Danielle Sheridan in 2009. Both Barnes and Sheridan ended their Tech careers ranked in numerous offensive categories, including hits, batting average, runs scored and outfield assists. In addition to the on-the-field responsibilities of coaching the Tech outfielders and slappers, Miles is also in charge of the academic progress of the Tech players off the diamond as well as scheduling community service projects and CHAMPS/Lifeskills Leadership seminars. She also serves as the program’s recruiting coordinator. Her academic work with the Lady Techster players has paid large dividends as the team recorded its highest single year Academic Progress Rate (APR) score ever with a perfect 1000 for the 2008-09 season. In addition to that impressive fact, the Lady Techsters have placed 39 players on the Academic All-WAC team over the past four years. Miles played at Louisiana Tech from 2002 through 2005, and ended her collegiate playing days as one of the most decorated outfielders to ever don a Lady Techster uniform. The DeSoto, Texas, native twice earned all-Western Athletic Conference honors and was a four-time Academic all-WAC honoree. Statistically, Miles set the Louisiana Tech single season hits record in 2004, registering 68 hits which broke the 18-year-old mark of 63 by Faith Holman. Miles ended her career ranking No. 2 in career hits (208), No. 3 in stolen bases (89), No. 8 in total bases (229), No. 8 in runs scored (92), and No. 10 in triples (10). Miles proved to be a leader on and off the playing field, serving as the editor of the university newspaper The Tech Talk and as the president of the WAC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, while also representing Louisiana Tech as the 2004 NCAA Leadership Conference in Orlando, Fla. Following her Tech career, Miles spent one season playing professionally for the Nebraska Comets. Miles, who returned to Tech in 2007 after spending 14 months working in the newspaper business including an 11-month stint as a prestigious Hearst Fellow, earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism from Louisiana Tech in 2005 and her master’s degree in counseling in 2010.

Now in its 50th year of existence, the Western Athletic Conference continues to evolve and feature some of the nation’s best intercollegiate competition. 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 past decade. The WAC has sent a total of 35 teams to bowl games since 2001, including more than half of its teams in 2008 with a record-tying five teams. The conference has sent teams to BCS bowl games in three of the last five seasons including Hawai‘i’s appearance in the 2008 Sugar Bowl. In men’s basketball, the WAC has sent at least two teams to the NCAA Tournament in 24 of the past 28 seasons. Every current school in the WAC has competed in the NCAA Tournament since 1990. In baseball, the WAC has boasted two national champions since 2003 including Fresno State’s College World Series victory in 2008. In women’s sports, Fresno State softball has competed in every NCAA Tournament ever held while Louisiana Tech basketball has played in all but three. In 2009, Hawai‘i made its fourth trip since 2000 to the NCAA Volleyball Final Four, and in 2010, the Rainbow Wahine earned a trip to the Softball College World Series. Current WAC alums have made their presence felt as well. David Carr (Fresno State) was the first player selected in the 2002 NFL Draft. Cheryl Ford (Louisiana Tech) was named the WNBA Rookie of the Year and helped the Detroit Shock win the league’s championship in 2003. In 2004, the United States’ softball team won the Olympic gold medal with former Fresno State players Laura Berg and Lovie Jung. Jeff Weaver (Fresno State) earned the win in the St. Louis Cardinals’ World Series clinching victory in 2006. Quarterback Colt Brennan (Hawai‘i) finished third in the 2007 Heisman Trophy voting, and in 2008, Natasha Kai (Hawai‘i) helped the United States to a gold medal in soccer at the Olympics in Beijing. 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, gymnastics, 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. The current membership was established on July 1, 2005, when Idaho, New Mexico State and Utah State joined the WAC after Rice, SMU, UTEP and Tulsa withdrew. For the 2012-13 season, the WAC will add Denver, UTSA, Texas State and Seattle to replace withdrawing members Boise State (2011), Fresno State (2012), Hawai‘i (2012) and Nevada (2012). The WAC has had just five commissioners in its history. Paul Brechler was named the first leader of the conference and held the position from 1962-1968. He was followed by Wiles Hallock (1968-71), Stan Bates (1971-80), Dr. Joe Kearney (1980-94) and Karl Benson (1994-present). Presently, the WAC crowns team and individual champions in 19 sports – eight men’s and 11 women’s. For the men, there are championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, indoor track and field and outdoor track and field. Championships for women are held in basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field and volleyball. The WAC office has been located in the Denver area since the conference’s inception with the exception of a two-year stay in Phoenix from 1964-66.

When Karl Benson was named the fifth commissioner in the history of the Western Athletic Conference on April 20, 1994, he brought with him a wealth of experience and a personal history of success to the position. Since that time, Benson not only has laid a strong foundation for the WAC’s future, he has also steered the conference through unsettled times as the league’s longest tenured commissioner. Through his leadership and vision, it didn’t take long for the WAC to regain its place among the nation’s top Division I conferences. Benson has spearheaded conference expansion three times over the past decade with the most recent additions of Denver, UT-Arlington, UTSA, Texas State and Seattle. Nationally, Benson has earned the respect of his peers after serving on the NCAA Management Council from 1999-2002, and a five-year term on the NCAA Men’s Basketball Committee from 2002-06. Benson hit the ground running when he was hired in 1994 and initiated several programs that improved the conference’s national position in virtually every category. He was instrumental in developing multi-year agreements with the Holiday Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Copper Bowl, Las Vegas Bowl, Silicon Valley Football Classic, GMAC Bowl, New Mexico Bowl and currently, the Humanitarian Bowl, Sheraton Hawai‘i Bowl, Poinsettia Bowl and Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. In the summer of 2005, he implemented “Play Up” a new marketing campaign to improve the public and private perceptions of the WAC and its members through national, local and regional touch points. The conference officially added WAC.tv prior to the 2006-07 season, giving fans streaming video access to many of the postseason championships of the sports offered by the WAC. In 1995-96, the WAC signed an exclusive multi-year agreement with ESPN for the unprecedented live coverage of its basketball and football. Included in that deal was a women’s basketball contract, the first in conference history. In 2008, Benson negotiated an extension with ESPN that gave the WAC even more telecasts of its regular season and championship events. Benson came to the WAC after four successful years as the commissioner of the MidAmerican Conference. There, he implemented several innovative projects and was instrumental in the formation of the Las Vegas Bowl. Prior to taking the reins of the MAC, Benson served on the NCAA staff for more than four years where he was the director of NCAA championships when selected as MAC commissioner. Benson joined the NCAA staff in January, 1986, as a compliance representative and was appointed assistant director of championships in June, 1987. He was promoted to director of championships in 1988. In that position, Benson actively supervised eight assistant directors in their administration of 68 NCAA championships. A native of the state of Washington, Benson graduated from high school in Pullman in 1970, attended Spokane Falls Community College and then received a bachelor of science degree in physical education from Boise State University in 1975. He has also completed course work toward his master’s degree in athletics administration at the University of Utah. Benson played baseball at both Spokane Falls Community College and Boise State University before serving as the baseball coach at Fort Steilacoom Community College in Tacoma, Wash., for eight years and as the director of athletics at Fort Steilacoom from 1979-84. From 198486, he was an assistant baseball coach and an administrative assistant in the athletics department at Utah. He received the Distinguished Alumni Award from Boise State in April of 2006. Benson was born on December 1, 1951 and has one daughter, Jessie.

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. Louisiana Tech has twice been ranked in the nation’s top ten for graduating students with the least amount of debt by U.S. News & World Report (2010 and 2011) 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 25th 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.

2012 LADY TECHSTER SOFTBALL

Dr. Dan Reneau. Van De Velde was originally hired at LA Tech in June of 2008 as deputy athletics director and chief operating officer but took over full leadership of a department that fields 16 NCAA Division I sanctioned programs, including nine women’s and seven men’s sports, that compete in the highly-competitive Western Athletic Conference. “Bruce is well qualified by national standards to fill the position of athletics director at Louisiana Tech,” Reneau said. “I feel that we made an excellent choice in selecting him to lead Tech athletics to national prominence and to serve the needs of our student-athletes.” Van De Velde came to Ruston with a long history of Division I athletic administration experience, including stints as athletics director at Iowa State and Utah State. “It is an honor to be named as the director of athletics at Louisiana Tech University,” Van De Velde said. “I look forward to serving our student-athletes, faculty, staff, alumni and fans. 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. “This goal is consistent with the vision President Reneau has established for the University which is to become north Louisiana’s premier national research university. In order to accomplish this vision we must engage all of our 80,000 alumni, fans and supporters and ask them for their participation. It takes resources to achieve our goal, and we need every one to support the program.” 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: • Developed and implemented the largest fundraising campaign in athletic department history in the Quest for Excellence, a $20 million capital campaign to upgrade facilities. • Assisted with the development, negotiation and implementation of a $6.75 million multi-media and marketing rights agreement with Learfield Communications. Contract more than doubled revenue derived from corporate sponsorships and created statewide radio network for Louisiana Tech athletics. • Negotiated and signed a partnership with the Aspire Group, forming a Fan Relationship Management Center which will include six sales consultants devoted to selling and serving Louisiana Tech Athletics ticket holders.. • Negotiated a $3.6 million University and athletic department pour rights and corporate sponsorship agreement with Pepsi. • Reorganized annual giving program doubling the number of donors and increased total annual contributions to the program by 75 percent. Developed marketing efforts to strengthen outreach and established an agenda for growth. • Led a national search in January of 2010 to hire head football coach Sonny Dykes from the University of Arizona. Also, led a national search in April of 2011 to hire head men’s basketball coach Mike White from Ole Miss. • Student-athlete graduation success rate of 70 percent in 2010 was the highest in the history of the University and one of the tops in the nation. All 16 sports programs were penalty free. • In 2010, the Louisiana Tech athletic department earned the PRISM Award for excellence in athletics management under Van De

Velde’s leadership. The department also won the NCAA Pack the House for the Western Athletic Conference all four years for its marketing and promotions effort for women’s basketball. Tech has also seen plenty of success on the fields and courts since Van De Velde’s arrival at Tech as the Bulldog football team captured its first bowl victory in more than 30 years with the 2008 Independence Bowl title. 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. This past year Louisiana Tech recorded its best finish ever in the Western Athletic Conference’s Commissioner’s Cup, which is an allsports award based on where each program finishes in the league standings. The University’s student-athletes have also seen success in the classroom since his arrival on campus as this past year saw Tech record a 70 percent student athlete graduation success rate, the highest in its history and one of the tops in the nation. 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. Van De Velde came to Tech with impressive credentials, having served as an administrator in intercollegiate athletics for over 20 years. Van De Velde served as athletics director at Iowa State University and Utah State University and as a senior administrator at the University of Oklahoma, University of Missouri and Kansas 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 5,500 donors participating and a record $4 million dollars in annual contributions. Under Van De Velde’s leadership, over 2,000 new donors joined the National Cyclone Club. Including capital project gifts, scholarship endowments and annual contributions, over $40 million dollars was raised from 2001 through 2005. 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 winningest coach in the history of the Utah State program. While serving as the associate athletic director for football operations under 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 the senior administrative officer 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 planned and initiated 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. Throughout his career in college athletics, Van De Velde has served on numerous NCAA committees including the Championships and Competition Cabinet, the Football Issues Committee, the Financial Aid Committee and the Peer Review Committee for NCAA certification. He and his wife Debbie, who is a Kansas State alum and who serves as the Development Officer in the LA Tech College of Business, are the proud parents of 11-year-old daughter, Ashley who is entering the fifth grade.

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 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 two 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 led the Lady Techsters to the WAC regular season title and a berth in the WNIT. This past season, she led Tech to the 2010 WAC Tournament title and a return to the NCAA Tournament. She also served as the point person in the hiring process of head women’s soccer coach Kevin Sherry and head women’s volleyball coach Matt Sonnichsen. Sherry led the Lady Techster soccer team to two straight winning seasons the past two years - the first in program history - and the program’s first ever WAC victory. In only his second season at the helm, Sonnichsen, who was a three-time All-American and two-time National Champion during his playing days at UCLA, led the Lady Techsters to 15 wins - the most since 2005 - as well as a program record in WAC victories. 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), including ranking No. 1 in the state of Louisiana and the Western Athletic Conference in recent years. This past year eight of the 16 NCAA sanctioned programs at LA Tech earn their highest multi-year APR score ever while 94 studentathletes earned Academic all-WAC honors. 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 assistant athletics director for academics and compliance as well as senior woman administrator. One of Hungate’s early accomplishments as assistant director of athletics was the creation of the Louisiana Tech Athletic Academic Center program. Hungate has served terms on the NCAA Division I Academics/ Eligibility/Compliance Cabinet, the NCAA Division I Interpretations/Legislative Review Subcommittee, the National Association of Collegiate

Tech student-athletes also recorded their highest Graduation Success Rate(GSR) and highest four-year graduation rate ever this past year as the University ranks No. 1 in the state of Louisiana among Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) public institutions and second among all WAC schools.
