2009 Outlook With a core of seasoned veterans and

a crop of talented newcomers, the LSU volleyball team is more than capable of building on its championship tradition during the 2009 season.

Once again playing in one of the nation’s toughest conferences, the Tigers will look to defend its four straight SEC Western Division crowns. LSU also has accumulated four consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances and posted 22.5 wins per season during its four-year run. “This program is ready to take the next step as far as winning an overall conference championship and moving further into the NCAA Tournament,” head coach Fran Flory said. “I was fortunate enough to be a part of two Final Four teams in 1990 and 1991. Our goal is to return to that level, and we know everything has to fall in place for that to happen. The foundation of the 2009 team is solid. The players are poised, prepared and continue to get better with each challenge they face.” The keys to the team’s ability to take that next step begin with its returning arsenal highlighted by middle blockers Brittnee Cooper and Lauren DeGirolamo along with outside hitters Marina Skender and Michele Williams. Together, LSU’s high octane quartet boasts 52 career accolades, including 2007 and 2008 AVCA All-American Honorable Mention status for both DeGirolamo and Cooper, respectively. The Tigers also return setters Sam Dabbs and Brittney Johnson coupled with veteran outside hitter Angela Bensend and middle blocker Tania Schatow. Between the seven returning players, the 2009 Tigers feature more than 2,500 kills and have contributed to 90 LSU victories. “This experienced group of players has been through the battles and are hungry to get back on the court,” Flory said. “We also have four gifted newcomers who are eager to make an impact at the collegiate level. Getting more versatile players has been the biggest area of growth of our program over the last five seasons and that’s a critical ingredient to where we want to go this season.” Once again, Flory has challenged the Tigers with another highcaliber series of opponents. LSU has 12 matches scheduled against 2008 NCAA Tournament teams as the Tigers open the season against national runner-up Stanford (Aug. 28) followed by matches

against Denver (Aug. 29) and host Notre Dame (Aug. 30) at the Shamrock Invitational in South Bend, Ind. LSU returns home and takes on its second Final Four squad from 2008 as Nebraska (Sept. 4) along with Louisiana-Lafayette (Sept. 5) and Tulane (Sept. 5) visit the Maravich Center for the Tiger Classic. Before entering conference play, the Tigers square off with NCAA Tournament participants Tulane (Sept. 11) and Long Beach State (Sept. 12) in addition to New Orleans (Sept. 12) at the AllState Sugar Bowl Classic in New Orleans. For the fourth consecutive season, LSU will play a home-andhome series with each Southeastern Conference team in lieu of a league tournament. The Tigers welcome NCAA Tournament participants Tennessee (Sept. 18) and Kentucky (Sept. 20) on the opening weekend of SEC action. Defending SEC champion Florida (Oct. 11) visits the PMAC as part of four-match home stand that features South Carolina (Oct. 9), Arkansas (Oct. 16), Ole Miss (Oct. 18). The four-time defending SEC Western Division champions also play host to Georgia (Oct. 30), Auburn (Nov. 1) Mississippi State (Nov. 20) and Alabama (Nov. 22) before concluding the regular season at NCAA Tournament participant Rice (Nov. 27). “The SEC continues to get better and better,” Flory said. “There are a lot of teams who were young last season that bring back a lot of talented players. The league is as wide open as it’s ever been from top to bottom, and it’s going to be challenge every time we step on the court.” The NCAA Tournament begins with opening rounds, Dec. 3-6, on campus sites before moving onto four regional sites hosted by Florida, Minnesota, Nebraska and Stanford. The Final four is set for Dec. 17-19 at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, Fla.

2009 LSU VOLLEYBALL Media Guide


2009 Outlook Outside Hitters

LSU has no shortage of options as Marina Skender, Angela Bensend and Madie Jones can succeed at either the outside or right side hitting positions. The trio is joined by Brittney Johnson, Ally Judkins, Tania Schatow and Michele Williams, who are additional candidates that could see time on the outside when not in their traditional positions. A dangerous server, powerful hitter and consistent passer, Skender’s versatility combined with her experience, makes her one of the most complete players in the SEC. She enters 2009 after racking up 1,097 kills, 954 digs, 247 blocks and 165 aces over her first three seasons before sitting out 2008 with a medical redshirt. Angela Bensend had a strong finish to the 2008 season, connecting on 108 of her 151 kills against SEC opponents. Her steady passing also will be important as she looks to return to her form that brought her 2007 All-SEC Freshmen Team accolades. “The 2009 team is filled with tremendous flexibility and firepower,” Flory said. “It’s very rare to finish the spring not knowing where the pieces are going to fit together in the fall. Marina and Angela give a solid foundation to our steady arsenal.” Madie Jones is physical opposing player who played both outside and right side hitter in high school. She was chosen as one of PrepVolleyball.com’s Class of 2009 Top 50 recruits and tallied a second-place finish at the 2008 USA Volleyball Junior Championships with her club team taking home All-America honors.

Setters

LSU’s setting tandem of Sam Dabbs and Brittney Johnson returns for 2009 after passing out a combined 11.18 assists per game last season. Both players contribute valuable understanding of the game and possess familiarity with the LSU hitters after working extremely hard during the offseason. Dabbs, the 2008 Louisiana Newcomer of the Year, contributed six double-doubles which included LSU’s first triple-double since the 2003 season. She registered 40 or more assists on 10 occasions and ranked inside the SEC’s Top 5 in assists per set. Johnson split time at setter and offered versatility to the Tiger lineup taking swings from the right side. The Baton Rouge native was the only player to post over a kill, an assist and a dig per set last season. She also showcased her athleticism as a consistent blocker. “Sam and Brittney are both very solid setters that can take us to the championship level,” Flory said. “We feel that Sam has acquired a much better feel for our hitters’ strengths after having a season under her belt. Brittney is a very intelligent offensive player who responded very favorably and gained valuable experience as we adjusted the tempo of our offense during the spring.”

Middle Blockers

LSU returns three of its strongest weapons in middle blockers Brittnee Cooper, Lauren DeGirolamo and Michele Williams. Cooper and DeGirolamo earned AVCA All-America Honorable mention status in 2007 and 2008, respectively. Cooper has spent the offseason in each of the last two seasons training with the U.S. National A2 Team. She won medals on both occasions and returns as one of the most-respected players in the SEC. The Houston native popped 302 kills on a .336 hitting percentage and paced the league averaging 1.21 blocks per set in 2008. DeGirolamo’s 2008 season was cut short due to injury, but she will rely on her proven ability to hit and block consistently to bounce back this season. She slapped 430 kills on a .332 hitting percentage to go along with 1.51 blocks per set in 2007. Williams, a unanimous pick to the SEC All-Freshman Team in 2008, knocked 162 of her 191 kills in SEC action registering a .302 hitting percentage and will be looked upon to reach even greater heights in her sophomore campaign. “We’ve made being an extremely disciplined blocking team one of areas of emphases during the spring and something that we will continue to fine tune in the fall,” Flory said. “With Brittnee, Lauren and Michele, this portion of the game can be dominating for us. Both players have the capable of taking over matches and controlling the match from the net.”

Defensive Specialist/Liberos

With the departure of the reigning two-time SEC Defensive Player of the Year and AVCA All-American defensive specialist Elena Martinez, LSU will undeniably have a hole to fill in one of the most crucial position on the court. Lauren Waclawczyk along with freshmen Sam Delahoussaye and Meghan Mannari are set to anchor the LSU back row. Waclawczyk saw action in 27 matches accounting for 1.46 digs per set last season, while Delahoussaye and Mannari arrive on the Bayou after extremely decorated prep careers. “The first touch is the most important and there will be opportunities for all three of them to play,” Flory said. “Lauren did an excellent job alongside Elena last year and we’re excited about the progress she made working extremely hard to improve her defensive range. Meagan does a great job of making the play that seems impossible, while Sam has a steady platform and is the best true passer of the trio.”

Southeastern Conference

LSU INTRO This is LSU COACHES TIGERS review History

The Southeastern Conference continues to flourish as a solid and competitive league in women’s collegiate volleyball. In the last two decades, the SEC has made stellar contributions in volleyball. The conference has sent at least two SEC teams to the NCAA Tournament in every season the last 19 years. The SEC had a team reach the Final Four seven of the 10 seasons in the ‘90s with the league having a team advance to the regional final nine of those 10 seasons. Since 2000, the SEC has had a team reach the Final Four three times and regional final four times. In 2008, Florida captured its 18th SEC Championship and made its 19th NCAA Tournament appearance, advancing to the regional semifinals. In all, four teams from the SEC made the NCAA Tournament, including Florida, Kentucky, LSU and Tennessee. Since the inaugural SEC volleyball championship in 1979-80, many changes have occurred in the conference with volleyball. The addition of Arkansas and South Carolina to the league in 1991 brought the divisional format to the sport with five teams competing in the Eastern Division and six teams in the Western Division. In 2009, the SEC entered into an unprecedented TV agreement with ESPN that will provide exclusive coverage of SEC athletics. In the arrangement, SEC volleyball will now be broadcast on three different platforms: ESPNU, FS South/ Southwest/Sun Sports and CSS. Live SEC volleyball coverage can now reach into 46 million homes nationwide on ESPNU, and in the SEC nine-state region, 22 million homes on FS South/Southwest/Sun Sports, and 7 million homes on CSS.

Fran Flory

Volleyball

It hasn’t taken Fran Flory long to turn around the LSU volleyball program. She took over a team that had hit rock bottom in 1997 and has methodically turned it into a team that expects to win every time it steps on the court. From 0-15 in the SEC the season prior to her arrival to three-straight SEC Western Division titles and NCAA Tournament appearances over the last three years, Flory has made her impact felt on the court. With her ability to identify and develop talent, relate to her players and surround herself with top-notch assistant coaches, Flory has made this a great time to be a part of LSU volleyball. “LSU has everything a studentathlete could ask for, from the facilities to the administration. We expect to win championships and every LSU student-athlete has those expectations. Our teams are committed to winning both on the court and in the classroom. “Team togetherness and team ownership are two very important

12

factors in our program. Our teams are committed not only to LSU, but also to each other. Team ownership is vital to the success of any team, company or organization. Everyone must have a clear understanding of the goals and direction of the program. We are very careful to define roles and responsibilities so everyone is headed in the same direction.” Flory came to LSU from the head coaching position at Kentucky, where she led the Wildcats to one NCAA Tournament appearance and was named the AVCA South District Coach of the Year in 1993. Prior to that, she served as an assistant at LSU where she helped the Tigers to three SEC Championships and two Final Four appearances. Now, entering her 11th season, Flory will continue to build on the solid foundation that she has laid out for the LSU volleyball program and continue to design her program around the fundamentals that have made her a success at every stop of her coaching career.

Fran Flory Volleyball “My goal for every student-athlete who competes on my team is to allow and help them develop into a successful person in all aspects of life.”

LSU INTRO This is LSU COACHES TIGERS review History RECORDS

4Education First

A staple of the LSU program since Flory arrived in 1998 has been the tremendous academic success of her players. The Tigers have placed the second-most players on the SEC Academic Honor Roll in the last seven years of any school in the league. In four of those past seven seasons, LSU has led the conference. “Balancing a successful career in the classroom and on the court is a difficult task,” said Flory. “It requires a great deal of discipline and commitment. Our staff truly understands what it takes and shares in the commitment to insure the academic and athletic success of our student-athletes.”

LSU MEDIA

4Building for Success in Life

When athletes sign to play for coach Flory, they sign on not only to maximize their potential as a volleyball player, but also to maximize their potential as a person. “My goal for every student-athlete who competes on my team is to allow and to help them develop into a successful person in all aspects of life. When they graduate, I want them to truly feel prepared for the next step in their lives, whatever that may be. We are not just about developing successful volleyball players, our program is about developing successful people. “Our philosophy is one that we all control our own destiny. Each day we make choices in all aspects of our lives that will influence who and what we become. We strive to provide the freedom and correct environment to make the choices that will prepare our student-athletes for their future.”

“Fran is one of the finest people I have ever met. I have had the pleasure of watching her become one of the finest coaches in our profession. It would be an honor to have my daughter play for her. She has great enthusiasm, is very easy to work with and has a true desire to be successful. She has my utmost admiration and support.”

Mick Haley

Speaking of

Fans will have the opportunity to donate money in aid of awareness for the world’s most common cause of cancer deaths in women. The Tigers have collected and donated over $5,000 during the event’s first two years. LSU went from wearing specially designed pink warm-up shirts in 2007 and wore commemorative pink jerseys against No. 8 Florida last season. Prior to the match, the Tigers played host to a Pink Carnival that was filled with a multitude of games. LSU won three of its four October matches during the 2008 campaign. The “Dig for the Cure” campaign was originally started in 2003 by Charlotte head coach Lisa Marston, who mother was a breast cancer survivor, and has spread to over 100 volleyball programs across the country. During the previous six years, the campaign raised over half a million dollars.

Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Mechanical College has, throughout its 145year history, served the people of Louisiana, the region, the nation, and the world. LSU is creating a revolution, one of pervasive change and advancement. For the past five years, the focus of the LSU community has been an increased commitment to excellence. Our progress has been dramatic and shows no sign of stopping. Having witnessed many of yesterday’s possibilities become today’s tangible realities, the LSU community set forth to capitalize on its success. The goal was to improve our standing as a nationally competitive flagship university. Following intense discussions among the LSU Board of Supervisors, campus administrators, faculty, and student leaders, the objectives required to reach this status crystallized, providing the impetus for LSU’s National Flagship Agenda.


Why LSU?

Jill Lytle Wilson Former LSU volleyball player and current assistant coach

LSU INTRO This is LSU COACHES

“I knew the second I stepped foot on campus that I might be the luckiest person on earth to have the chance to play volleyball at LSU. On my official visit, it poured at the football game that day and not a soul left or stopped their cheers until the Tigers claimed the close victory. Instantly that day I saw the great passion for LSU from every professor, coach, student and fan. Now I am fortunate enough to be back coaching at LSU with my mentor, and there is not a day that passes now that I don’t think about how my four years here were the greatest opportunity of my life.

TIGERS review History RECORDS LSU MEDIA

“It was really quite an honor to be able to play for LSU. Being from Lockport, everybody down there is a big LSU fan. Once I graduated from high school and had to make the decision where I was going to play, LSU was the obvious choice because I had grown up an LSU fan and it was a place where my family could watch me play. LSU really helped me grow both as a player and a person. I have nothing but fond memories of the place.”

“Throughout the entire recruiting process I always knew LSU was the best choice. Being from the great state of Louisiana, LSU was a home away from home. I knew that this would be a place I could grow as a student-athlete and a young man. The coaches, faculty, and the 92,000 marvelous fans only help to make the decision much easier. Looking back on it, I couldn’t have asked for more from the experience.”

“As far back as I can remember (riding bicycles, playing little league baseball), I have literally bled purple and gold. It never crossed my mind that there was anywhere else to go other than LSU. The experiences and relationships that I developed at LSU have been an integral part of my life. No other colleges existed in my mind. I am fortunate to have attended a place that I considered a dream and look forward to my association with the University until the day I die.”

Pettit led LSU to its first NCAA Final Four in 1953 and he later became the first player in NBA history to exceed the 20,000-plus point barrier. Pettit is a member of the NBA Hall of Fame, and in 1997, he was named as one of the top 50 players in NBA history.

One of the true legends of college football in the South, Cannon was the 1959 Heisman Trophy winner and helped the Tigers to the 1958 national title. Cannon’s most memorable performance came in 1959 against Ole Miss when No. 1 LSU trailed No. 3 Ole Miss 3-0 in the fourth quarter. He fielded a punt, broke seven tackles and returned it 89 yards for the 7-3 victory. He went on to a successful 11-year professional career.

He went on to a 10-year professional career and was selected as one of the NBA’s 50 greatest players in 1997.

O’Neal was the first pick in the 1992 NBA Draft. He was named MVP of the league in 2000 and was a three-time NBA Finals MVP after leading the Los Angeles Lakers to three World Championships.

About LSU Retired Jerseys

The retirement of the jerseys of Casanova, McDonald and Macklin comes under a new provision of the LSU jersey retirement bylaws that says the retirement of an athlete’s jersey in a particular sport does not preclude a current student-athlete in that sport from wearing the jersey number in that or any other sport, subject to the discretion of the head coach. This provision applies only to jerseys retired after January 1, 2007, so the numbers worn by Maravich, Pettit, O’Neal, Cannon and Bertman may never again be worn by future student-athletes in their respective sports. To have a jersey retired at LSU, an athlete must have completed intercollegiate competition for LSU a minimum of five years prior to nomination. Athletes must have demonstrated truly unusual and outstanding accomplishments, exceeding and in addition to all criteria used for Hall of Fame selection. Nominees must have a unanimous vote of support from the Hall of Fame committee.

A legend in the college baseball ranks, Bertman created a dynasty at LSU, guiding the Tigers to five national titles in a 10-year stretch from 1991-2000. He also coached the United States to a bronze medal at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta and was an assistant on the gold medal-winning U.S. squad in Seoul, Korea, in 1988. Bertman retired from coaching following the 2001 season and is the LSU athletics director emeritus. Bertman was inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame in 2006.

Tommy Casanova is the only threetime All-American in the history of LSU football and is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. During his Tiger career from 1969-71, Casanova personified versatility for his myriad of talents as he played offense, defense, returned punts and kickoffs. One of just two three-time All-SEC performers at LSU, he played six seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals of the NFL while earning his medical degree.

Ben McDonald won the prestigious Golden Spikes Award, given annually to the nation’s most outstanding player, in 1989 and is a member of the College Baseball Hall of Fame. He led LSU to two College World Series appearances.

2008 Season Review

INTRO This is LSU COACHES TIGERS review History RECORDS LSU MEDIA

how the west was won

The Tigers claimed the SEC Western Division title for the fourth consecutive season. After splitting its first 14 league matches, LSU strung together six straight wins to conclude the regular season highlighted by a trio of sweeps over Arkansas, Ole Miss and Mississippi State. LSU’s championship run started in 2005 when the Tigers shared the division crown with Arkansas. The Tigers have won the division title outright over the last three seasons and are an impressive 28-2 (.933) against its fellow Western Division foes, including 20 consecutive victories dating back to the 2006 season. The Tigers join Arkansas and Florida as the only two programs in the conference to win four-straight divisional titles. The Gators have won all 14 Eastern Division titles since the league went to divisions in 1995, sharing the title with Tennessee in 2004. Arkansas won five-straight Western Division titles from 1995-1999, sharing the title with Auburn in 1996; and five-straight from 2001-2005, sharing the title with Alabama in 2004 and LSU in 2005.

Four-straight NCAA TOURNAMENT berths

LSU racked up its fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament berth in 2008, marking the second time in program history that the Tigers have accomplished that feat. The last time LSU went to the NCAA’s in four straight seasons came from 1989-1992. Overall, LSU recorded its 10th NCAA appearance dropping a hardfought 3-1 decision to UCLA. The Tigers are one of only three teams in the SEC to advance to the NCAA Final Four, making appearances in both 1990 and 1991. LSU was joined by three other SEC teams as Florida, Tennessee and Kentucky represented the SEC at the NCAA Tournamanent.

GUSTAV CANCELS TIGER CLASSIC

LSU was supposed to open the 2008 season playing host to the Mizuno Tiger Classic on Sept. 5-6 against Rice, Southeast Missouri State and Louisiana Tech. Hurrican Gustav had other plans. The Maravich Center was taken over days before the storm and was used as a special needs medical center. The Tigers instead made a late entry into the McNeese Invitational where they swept matches against Nicholls State and McNeese State. In 2005, LSU was forced to play its first 17 matches on the road in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The Tigere were on the road 26 of 46 days during that stretch and traveled nearly 10,000 miles.

Although LSU was on the losing end of the match, the Tigers were a part of NCAA attendance history at No. 2 Nebraska. The 13,412 fans at the Devaney Center were part of an NCAA regularseason volleyball record crowd.

Flory Gets win No. 300

Head coach Fran Flory recorded her 300th career victory when the Tigers defeated Mississippi State (Oct. 17). Over her 11 seasons at LSU, Flory has tallied a 192-133 mark and earned Louisiana Coach of the Year on three occassions (2001, 2005 & 2006). She has the second most wins of any active SEC head coach, behind only Florida’s Mary Wise.

Cooper’s breakout season Brittnee Cooper broke out during the 2008 season after being named to the All-SEC, All-LSWA and AVCA All-South Region First Teams. She posted 302 kills on a team-best .336 hitting percentage and was key down the stretch for the Tigers registering 10 of her 17 double-digit kill performances in her last 11 outings. Cooper also recorded 96 blocks at an SEC best 1.30 per set ratio. She notched five or more blocks 11 times. She compiled an impressive 24-kill and 12-block effort against No. 8 Florida (Oct. 24).

welcome aboard michele After Lauren DeGirolamo’s season-ending injury, Michele Williams made the most of her opportunity as an unnanimous selection to the SEC All-Freshman Team after moving from outside hitter to middle blocker. Williams finished third on the team popping 162 kills in conference play on a .302 hitting clip, good enough for 10th in the SEC. She won SEC Freshman of the Week after combining for 23 kills on 40 swings with only two attack errors against Alabama (Nov. 7) and Mississippi State (Nov. 9).

2008 Season Review kyna climbs up the charts Kyna Washington finished her LSU career sixth in program history knocking down 1,473 career kills. Her 3.39 kills per set are tied for third among players with 1,000 kills. Washington paced LSU with 313 kills and powered home double digit kills in 18 matches en route to All-Louisiana Second-Team accolades. The Houston native also slapped 158 career aces. She joins Leah Bennent, Detra Brown, Wendy Stammer and Julie Stempel as the only players in program history to rank inside the Top 10 in both kills and aces.

Dabbs fits right in After transferring from Louisville, Sam Dabbs made an immediate impact on the Tigers as she took home All-LSWA First Team and Newcomer of the Year honors. Dabbs directed a balanced offense that featured six players with more than 100 kills, including herself. She finished fourth in the SEC with 9.22 assists per set and compiled a triple-double with 48 assists, 10 kills and 14 digs against Texas A&M (Aug. 29). It was LSU’s first triple-double since Regan Hood against Mississippi State (Oct. 31, 2003).

CAVE DWELLERS

After the 2007 Tigers rallied from a 2-1 deficit to knock off Alabama on the road for the first time since 2001, LSU doubled its pleasure in 2008 with another gritty 3-2 triumph over the Crimson Tide in the CAVE. It was the first time since the 1992 and 1993 seasons that LSU has won back-to-back matches at Alabama. Kyna Washington and Michele Williams combined for 31 kills on a .377 hitting percentage, while Angela Bensend and Brittnee Cooper each chipped in nine kills. Elena Martinez anchored the back row by reeling in 28 digs. Martinez and Washington capped their careers having won in every opposing venue in the SEC with the exception of Florida’s Stephen C. O’Connell Center, a feat the Tigers haven’t accomplished since 1990.

DEGIROLAMO NAMED TO SEC COMMUNITY SERVICE TEAM

Lauren DeGirolamo was named to the sixth annual Southeastern Conference Volleyball Community Service Team in 2008. She has represented the Tigers for two years on the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC). DeGirolamo’s season was cut short against Ole Miss (Oct. 3) when she went down with a season-ending knee injury, but she did not let that stop her from continuing to pursue numerous service opportunities in the local Baton Rouge community. DeGirolamo spearheaded the volleyball team’s activity station at LSU’s Halloween BOOzar where the team played “spider volleyball” with the kids and handed out candy. She has participated in the SEC Together We CAN Food Drive as well as serving as a volunteer for the Big Buddy Program’s Evening of Champions. DeGirolamo also volunteered her services for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Telethon, and she was an MDA Strides and Rides volunteer where she helped set up the event and then encouraged kids with muscular dystrophy to finish the race.

LSU MEDIA

The Illinois native also is an outstanding scholar-athlete as she has been named a four-time SEC Academic Honor Roll member. She was listed as a member in 2006, 2007 and 2008 in addition to being a member of the Freshman Academic Honor Roll in 2005. The SEC sponsors Community Service Teams for all 20 league sponsored sports. The Community Service Team looks to highlight an athlete from each school who gives back to their community in superior service efforts.

JOHNSON EARNS JESSE OWENS ATHLETIC AWARD

Brittney Johnson was presented with the Jesse Owens Athletic Award as part of the Black Faculty and Staff Caucus’ 24th annual Black Scholars Awards Program at the Carl Maddox Field House in April. The award is presented to the African American student with the highest grade point average. Johnson, a business major, currently carries a 3.7 GPA. “Brittney is an exceptional student-athlete who works hard and always goes the extra mile,” Cox Communications Academic Center Associate Director Dr. Mary Boudreaux said. “She is not only working on an accounting degree but is also completing the courses needed so that she can attend Pharmacy School when her LSU degree and volleyball career is complete.”

medal time for cooper

Middle blocker Brittnee Cooper was a contributing member of the U.S. Women’s National A2 Red Team that captured the silver medal at the 80th USA Adult Open Volleyball Championships held at the Minneapolis Convention Center in May. It marked the second consecutive year that Cooper has earned a medal with the USA A2 Red Team. She teamed with Elena Martinez to win gold in 2008.

e can dig it Elena Martinez capped her illlustrious career by winning her second consecutive SEC and Louisiana Defensive Player of the Year awards after headlining the league with 516 digs at a 4.96 per set ratio, also good enough for 29th nationally. Her 516 digs also matched Luciana Reis (1993) for the third-most in a single season, while her 1,414 career digs rank second in program history She carried the bulk of Tigers service receptions, and committed only 18 reception errors in 840 attempts for an impressive .979 percentage. Martinez also was selected to the AVCA All-South Region First Team and earned All-America Honorable Mention status. The New Orleans product joined Monique Adams (1990 & 1991), Angie Miller (1990 & 1991) and Daniela Reis (1990, 1991 & 1992) as the only Tigers to have multiple AVCA All-South Region First-Team selections.

SO CLOSE FOR E HISTORY Martinez notched double-figure digs during 47 consecutive matches before seeing her streak come to a close at Auburn (Oct. 12). She came within two matches of former libero Kassi Mikulik’s streak of 49 matches.

1990 Overall Record: 34-7

Coming off its second undefeated conference championship in as many seasons, LSU cruised past Louisville behind a .337 team hitting percentage in the first round of the NCAA Tournament at the Maravich Center. The Tigers dismissed Texas Tech 3-0 in round two as Daniela Reis set a balanced attack that featured 15 kills from Nyla Shephered, 12 kills from Monique Adams and 10 kills from Julie Stempel. LSU had its 1986 season end one step shy of the Final Four at Texas and were swept by the Longhorns during the 1990 regular season in Austin. Down 2-0 to the host Longhorns, LSU mounted a rally behind Adams, Shepherd and Stempel. The trio combined for 74 of the Tigers’ 91 kills and posted double-doubles as LSU fought back for a 8-15, 4-15, 15-10, 15-11, 17-15 triumph to advance to the program’s first Final Four. The Tigers fell to eventual national champion UCLA, 3-0, in the national semifinals, but the future was bright as Adams, Shepherd and Stempel would return for their senior seasons in 1991.

LSU fired out to a 12-0 record to start the 1991 season highlighted by wins over No. 11 New Mexico and No. 17 Texas before being upended at Florida to open SEC play. The Tigers bounced back in a big way reeling off 20 consecutive victories en route to its third consecutive SEC regular season and tournament championships. Only losing 12 games during the season, LSU entered the NCAA Tournament as a favorite to return to the Final Four and the Tigers did not disappoint shutting down Houston in the first round to advance to the South Regional, which the Tigers hosted. After sweeping Texas Tech, LSU faced off with Florida for the fourth time in ‘91. Monique Adams and Daniela Reis set a program single-game marks. Adams cranked 43 kills on an amazing .507 hitting percentage, while Reis dished out 82 assists. Angie Miller (10 kills, 29 digs), Luciana Reis (12 killls, 22 digs) and Julie Stempel (11 kills, 12 digs) also tacked on double-doubles as LSU punched its second straight ticket to the Final Four. LSU dropped a hard-fought, four-game duel with Long Beach State in the national semifinals. Until Florida in 2002, the 1991 Tigers were the only SEC squad to win a game in the Final Four.

1992 Overall Record: 26-9

2006 Overall Record: 26-6

LSU qualified for its fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance as the SEC regular season and tournament runner-up. The Tigers traveled to Lubbock, Texas for its NCAA First Round tilt and swept the Red Raiders for the third straight season. Angie Miller and Tess Sulatycki powered home a combined 29 kills on 49 swings for a .469 hitting percentage, while Daniela Reis (47 assists, 13 digs) and Luciana Reis (10 kills, 17 digs) chipped in double-doubles. Texas edged LSU in four games at the South Regional in Gainesville, Fla., ending the Tigers hopes of a third straight Final Four appearance.

LSU made it back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances after winning the SEC Western Division outright dethrowning Arkansas. Daniela Romero and Marina Skender notched All-SEC First-Team selections as the Tigers set a new benchmark for conference wins. The Tigers spent a majority of the season inside the Top 15, but were forced to travel to the west coast for a first round match-up against California, another Top 16 team that failed to garner a national seed. LSU won game one before the Golden Bears fired back to win the next three games limiting the Tigers to a .156 hitting percentage. Marina Skender and Kyna Washington popped 12 kills each.

1993 Overall Record: 21-16

2007 Overall Record: 25-8

LSU had its string of four consecutive NCAA Tournaments come to a close as 11 of the squad’s 16 setbacks came against Top 20 opponents in 1993. Despite being left out of the big dance, the Tigers showed why they deserved a bid by rolling to the NIVC Championship. LSU dropped just three games over a six-match span. Luciana Santana earned Tournament MVP honors after racking up three double-doubles and passing out 14.0 assists per game. Tiffany Miller and Luciana Reis also picked up All-Tournament accolades as the Tigers defeated Baylor in the NIVC Finals.

LSU strung together its third-straight NCAA Tournament appearance after claiming a third-consecutive SEC Western Division title. The Tigers jumped out to a 15-2 start as Lauren DeGirolamo and Kyna Washington were All-SEC FirstTeam picks. By storming back from a 2-1 deficit against No. 14 New Mexico State in the first round, LSU ended a 15-year winless draught in the NCAA’s. Brittney Johnson set a balanced attack fueling Angela Bensend, Marina Skender and Washington to double-figure kills. LSU enventually fell against No. 4 Texas at home for the second time in three seasons.

2005 Overall Record: 25-11

2008 Overall Record: 18-10

LSU returned to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1992 overcoming having to play a majority of the season on the road in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The Tigers shared the SEC Western Division title, and put forth a gutsy effort before losing to Texas in the first round of the NCAA’s.

The Tigers connected four NCAA Tournament appearances for the first time since 1989-92 overcoming a string of injuries as Elena Martinez won her second-straight SEC Defensive Player of the Year . LSU finished the regular season with six straight wins and pushed No. 14 UCLA to the limit during the opening round of the NCAA’s.

Pete Maravich Assembly Center

LSU INTRO This is LSU COACHES TIGERS review History RECORDS LSU MEDIA

MARAVICH CENTER The 2009 season marks LSU volleyball’s 28th season in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center, the largest volleyball venue in the SEC. The structure, which was renamed in honor of the all-time LSU and NCAA men’s basketball scoring leader on July 22, 1988, seats 13,373 and ranks as one of the finest college athletic arenas in the nation. On July 1, 2004, the management of the Maravich Center came under the direction of the LSU Athletics Department and underwent a multi-year refurbishment. The renovation began three years ago with new television lighting and continued two years ago with a new roof surface. In 2006, the inside of the Maravich Center saw an upgrade as the seats were replaced and the interior was given a complete makeover. Prior to the 2007 season, the main arena got a new subfloor and a new playing floor. In the summer of 2008, the auxiliary practice gym also received a new floor. The outside windows of the building now feature the Tiger mascot running around the arena. Volleyball fans also can see a redesigned concourse with video and graphic displays, renovated concession stands and video kiosks showcasing the best of the sports that play in the building. The Tiger volleyball team enjoys the comforts of a spacious locker room. The two-tiered, fully carpeted facility features individual cubicles for each athlete, a meeting room and storage area. Between 1985 and 1992, the Maravich Center was one of the top home courts in the nation, as LSU ran up a 110-10 (.917) record. During that time, LSU recorded a 37-match home-court win streak, which is the second-longest streak in SEC history. In 1991, the Tigers enjoyed possibly their finest season in the arena as LSU recorded a perfect 16-0 record and advanced to the Final Four through the NCAA South Regional in Baton Rouge. The Tigers have now posted 11 consecutive seasons without a losing record in the Maravich Center, making it once again a tough place for visiting teams to play. Over that span, LSU has a record of 90-39 (.688), including an undefeated 6-0 mark in 2005. Since beginning play in the arena in 1982, the Tigers have notched a 284-114 (.714) mark, recording only three losing seasons at home. The Maravich Center also has played host to SEC and NCAA Tournaments for volleyball, basketball and gymnastics. The 1982, 1987 and 1995 SEC Volleyball Championships were all held in the arena. The Maravich Center also has been the site of three NCAA Championship first-round matches as well as the NCAA South Regional in 1991. Along with the main court area, an auxiliary gym with a recently refinished court is located underground in the north section of the arena. Nearly all Tiger volleyball practices take place in the auxiliary gym.

Prior to his appointment as LSU’s eighth chancellor, Dr. Martin established a distinguished career in higher education, serving most recently as president of New Mexico State University. Before arriving at NMSU in 2004, Dr. Martin served for six years as vice president for agriculture and natural resources at the University of Florida, leading the university’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. He was elevated to senior vice president of the University of Florida shortly before being selected as NMSU’s president. Previously, he was vice president for agricultural policy and the dean of the College of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Sciences at the University of Minnesota. He began his academic career at Oregon State University as a faculty member in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics. An academic leader dedicated to the land-grant mission, Dr. Martin is recognized as a strong voice for higher education. In 2007, he received the Justin Smith Morrill Memorial Award, named after the author of the bill creating land-grant universities, which honors outstanding service on behalf of the land-grant mission. Only six individuals have been designated to receive this award since it was first given in 1980. For his leadership in improving the quality of life for New Mexico citizens and future generations, he was awarded the 2008 Distinguished Leadership Award by Leadership New Mexico.

Dydia DeLyser, an associate professor in the Department of Geography and Anthropology, serves in her fourth year as LSU’s Faculty Athletics Representative. DeLyser, a native of Santa Monica, Calif., earned her bachelor’s degree in 1992 from UCLA, and her master’s and doctoral degrees from Syracuse University (in 1996 and 1998). DeLyser arrived at LSU in August 1998 as an Instructor before becoming an assistant professor one year later. She was promoted to associate professor with tenure in August 2005. DeLyser is a cultural-historical geographer. Her research has been both ethnographic and historical, and most of it questions how different built landscapes can help make the past meaningful in the present. Much of her published research has focused on two different studies. One was a many-year ethnographic study of a ghost town in California (Bodie State Historic Park) where she examined how images and ideas about the American mythic West became meaningful to the tourists who

visited the town. The second was an historical study that examined a 19th century novel (Ramona) and how it changed the way people understood (and still understand) southern California’s past. Her current research concerns early women aviators and how they used their practices of flying to advance feminism in the post-suffrage era. DeLyser teaches graduate courses in cultural geography, qualitative research, and academic and professional writing. She has also taught undergraduate courses in cultural, and urban geography, and an introductory world-regional geography course. DeLyser is a first-generation American -- her parents were Dutch immigrants and English is her second language. She also has language abilities in Russian and Spanish. DeLyser’s hobbies include driving/riding antique cars and motorcycles. She is also a licensed pilot and co-owns a Citabria, which is a two-place aerobatic airplane.

Director of Athletics

Joe Alleva LSU Director of Athletics

COACHES TIGERS

Joe Alleva enters his second year as LSU’s Director of Athletics after being hired to lead one of the nation’s most powerful athletic programs on April 4, 2008. Alleva joined LSU after 10 years of outstanding leadership as the director of athletics at Duke University. He officially took over at LSU on July 1, 2008.

review History RECORDS LSU MEDIA

Under Alleva’s guidance in 2008-09, LSU reached new heights in terms of athletic success while continuing to be recognized as one of the top enterprises in college athletics. A veteran leader in college athletics, Alleva is dedicated to athletic and academic excellence. He is committed to providing the opportunities and the resources necessary for student-athletes to excel in competition, in the classroom and in the community. Alleva, 56, is well-respected for sustaining high standards of excellence and integrity in athletic programs, hiring the finest coaches in the country and the high level of success achieved by studentathletes. Under Alleva’s direction, all 20 LSU sports competed in NCAA post-season play for the first time in school history, and it culminated with the baseball team winning the national championship. In addition, six teams finished in the top 10 nationally. The Tigers hold claim to being the only school in the Southeastern Conference to participate in a bowl game and the men’s and women’s NCAA basketball tournaments during 2008-09. Furthermore, LSU student-athletes volunteered a total of 2,360 hours for community service projects. LSU earned a ninth place ranking in the 2009 Learfield Director’s Cup, which measures the overall athletic success for institutions across the country. LSU was second only to Florida in the Director’s Cup among SEC institutions as the Tigers accumulated points in 18 of a possible 20 categories in the standings, also a first for the school. Upon being hired at LSU, Alleva immediately made an impact by hiring Trent Johnson to lead the men’s basketball program. Johnson, the 2009 SEC Coach of the Year, wasted little time in turning the Tigers into a winner as LSU claimed the 2009 SEC regular season title and reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament. LSU also had top 10 national finishes in gymnastics, men’s and women’s indoor track and field and men’s and women’s outdoor track and field. Thirteen of LSU’s 20 sports finished the year ranked among the top 25 in the nation. The Tiger football team capped their season with a record ninth-straight bowl appearance as LSU closed out 2008 with a 38-3 win over 14th-ranked Georgia Tech in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. During the offseason, Alleva helped secure the funding necessary for the addition of a state-of-the-art artificial turf practice field, which compliments the surface the Tigers have in their indoor practice facility. The addition of the outdoor artificial turf field gives the LSU football program one of the nation’s finest all-around facilities.

Not only did LSU teams set records but so did the fans as over 1.5 million fans filled venues on the LSU campus. LSU set the school record for overall attendance in the sports of football, baseball, and softball. Alleva oversaw the grand opening of two of the premier baseball and softball facilities in college athletics, Alex Box Stadium and Tiger Park. LSU also broke ground on a basketball practice facility that will house both the men’s and women’s basketball teams starting in December of this year.

The new basketball practice facility will feature two full length courts as well as locker rooms and other amenities for both squads. In addition, LSU opened a new gift center for its fans – the LSU SportsShop. The LSU SportsShop, a spectacular, free-standing facility that features the latest in LSU apparel and merchandise, is located adjacent to Mike’s Habitat. Under Alleva’s guidance, LSU has one of the most lucrative apparel and shoe contracts with Nike while also having one of the nation’s most attractive multimedia rights contracts with CBS Collegiate Sports Properties. LSU athletic budget is now approaching $85 million, which allows the university to compete at the highest level in the nation. Alleva has a long-term vision for continued improvements to LSU’s athletic facilities in order to insure that the Tigers are among the best in the country well into the 21st Century. One of his top priorities is the enhancement of Tiger Stadium and making Tiger Stadium and the North Stadium Drive corridor a showplace for the university. Alleva’s

2009 LSU VOLLEYBALL Media Guide

innovative plan is to make a plaza area between the Maravich Assembly Center and Tiger Stadium that would recognize LSU’s national championship teams and distinguished alumni. This special area, along with Mike’s Habitat, and the LSU SportsShop, would become the focal point for visitors to campus. Alleva is also pursuing a major renovation to the golf course at the University Club and is developing plans for a new gymnastics practice facility, indoor tennis center and improved soccer and track facilities. “Joe Alleva brings a wealth of experience and accomplishment to LSU,” LSU President John Lombardi said of hiring Alleva. “I’m confident we’ve found a new leader for LSU athletics who exemplifies the vision and integrity needed to lead our sports programs to new heights, a champion of student athletes who believes in the highest standards of competition both on the field and in the classroom.” Alleva’s impressive tenure as director of athletics at Duke propelled the university into the ranks of America’s top all-around collegiate programs. Among his outstanding list of accomplishments includes the greatest 10-year period in Duke athletics, winning more ACC and NCAA championships than in any other decade in school history. Also, his fundraising reached extensive heights providing new facilities or renovations for all 26 sports at Duke, which enhanced the experience for every student-athlete. Alleva is active on the national collegiate athletics scene, having served on the Football Bowl Certification Committee. He sat on several Atlantic Coast Conference committees and served on the NCAA Division I Championships/Competition Cabinet. Alleva majored in Finance at Lehigh University and received his bachelor’s degree in 1975. While at Lehigh, Alleva was the quarterback of the football team and team captain in 1974. Alleva also played on the Lehigh baseball team. He served as a graduate assistant football coach and earned an MBA in 1976. Alleva began his 32-year career at Duke University in 1976. He spent 28 years in the athletic administration prior to becoming director of athletics in 1998. Alleva played a key role in Durham’s community sports scene. He started Little League Baseball in Durham over 20 years ago, and also began the American Legion baseball program Alleva is a member of the North Carolina American Legion Hall of Fame, Suffern High School Hall of Fame and the Rockland County Hall of Fame.

The Team of the 90s returned to the top of 21st-century college baseball as LSU brought home a sixth national championship in its first season at New Alex Box Stadium. The Tigers knocked off top-seeded Texas in the best-of-three College World Series championship series and were sparked by a 14-game postseason winning streak. Third-year head coach Paul Mainieri was the unanimous choice for National Coach of the Year as LSU finished the season with a 56-17 record, a Southeastern Conference regular season title and an SEC Tournament title.

Men’s Basketball

The LSU men’s basketball team captured its fourth SEC Western Division title this decade and won the Southeastern Conference regular season championship with a 13-3 record, winning the title by three games under first-year head coach Trent Johnson. LSU was 27-8 on the year and advanced to the second round of the NCAA championships. Johnson was the consensus choice as SEC Coach of the Year and a finalist for three national coach of the year honors.

Gymnastics

The gymnastics team continued to show it is one of the nation’s elite programs in 2009 by advancing to the Super Six after capturing the NCAA Central Regional for the second year in a row. The regional championship marked the Tigers’ sixth overall, and the Super Six berth was the team’s second straight. LSU has now made 25-consecutive postseason appearances.

Track & Field

The Tigers earned a pair of top-five finishes in NCAA competition with a fourth-place finish at the NCAA Indoor Championships followed by a fifth-place finish at the NCAA Outdoor Championships.
