2012 Season Preview

The future looks bright for the 2012 edition of the LSU Lady Tigers Tennis Team, as they boast a healthy mix of youth and experience going into the spring dual match schedule. “I am really excited about this team’s potential,” LSU head coach Tony Minnis said. “Our group is in a good position going into the dual match season, so a lot will depend on the girls constantly working to improve. I think this is a group that is willing and able to do that.” LSU returns eight of ten members from a team that won one more dual match a year ago from their 2009-2010 campaign. Two freshmen enter the fold this season, and both will serve to improve and reinforce the squad. The team steadily improved throughout the 2011 fall season with a crescendo at their final event of 2011, the Utah Fall Invitational, which saw LSU players win the doubles title and reach the singles final.

THE SENIORS

Leading the way for the Lady Tigers will be a pair of talented seniors in Whitney Wolf and Olivia Howlett. Wolf leads all active Lady Tigers with 60 career singles victories following a solid fall season that saw her go 9-5. Wolf reached the Utah Fall Invitational main draw final, and she has won 10 of her last 12 singles matches dating back to fall 2011, including a semifinal appearance at the ITA Southern Regional in Birmingham, Ala. She also teamed with Junior Keri Frankenberger to win the main draw doubles title in Utah as the pair won all of their matches in fall 2011. Howlett produced a 7-4 record for the Lady Tigers in the fall, with a semifinal appearance at the Utah Fall Invitational as a highlight. This spring season will be her first full campaign for LSU and she will be called upon to play a pivotal role for the team.

THE JUNIORS

LSU’s Junior Class will be called upon to take on a heavy burden in 2012. Kaitlin Burns went 7-5 during fall 2011, highlighted by her consolation bracket title at the season’s opening event, the Gopher Invitational. The former All-Louisiana selection also teamed with three partners to win a total of five doubles matches during the fall. Keri Frankenberger saw limited action in fall 2011 competing in just two singles matches, but she won all three of her doubles matches en route to the Utah Fall Invitational doubles championship alongside Whitney Wolf. Frankenberger is among the most decorated of the current crop of Lady Tigers as she has collected SEC All-Freshman Team, All-SEC Second Team, SEC Freshman of the Week, All-Louisiana First Team and Louisiana Freshman of the Year honors during her time in Baton Rouge. The Gainesville, Fla. Native has won 31 career matches, and she will be looked to as veteran leader in 2012. Ebie Wilson compiled the best record of any LSU singles player over the 2011 spring season. The Mobile, Ala., native was the Lady Tigers sole All-Louisiana First Team selection. Wilson led the squad with a 12-6 singles record racing out to a terrific start, as she prevailed in 11 of her first 13 matches before suffering a back injury in late March.

THE SOPHOMORES

Yvette Vlaar finished second on the team in spring singles victories with 11 and was tied for the team-lead with 10 spring doubles wins. She also went on a tear in March winning seven of eight matches including a five-match winning streak. Vlaar also finished the season with wins in three of her final four singles matches. Ariel Morton won 11 singles and 15 doubles matches during the 2010-11 season with the high point coming during a four-match singles win streak to help fuel the Lady Tigers’ overall success during March. She continued improving into fall 2011 as she went 4-1 in doubles alongside fellow sophomore Yvette Vlaar as well as Rebecca Bodine. Hayley Everett is coming off a fall 2011 campaign that saw her steadily improve upon her freshman campaign for the Lady Tigers. The Mandeville, La., native won four matches on the singles courts and four on the doubles courts in tournament play to close out 2011.

THE FRESHMEN

The Lady Tigers welcome two newcomers in 2012 in the form of Rebecca Bodine and Paige Bahnsen. Bodine compiled a 7-6 singles record during the fall, highlighted by reaching her first consolation final in her first season at the Rice Invitational. The final was rained out. She also won four doubles matches during the fall. Bahnsen won four doubles matches during the fall, to go along with two singles victories.

W.T. “Dub” Robinson TENNIS STADIUM Home Year-by-Year Record

W.T. “Dub” Robinson Tennis Stadium (550)

Since 1970, the W.T. Robinson Tennis Stadium has been the home of the LSU tennis program. The “Dub”, as it is affectionately referred to, has also undergone numerous renovations and improvements to keep up with collegiate tennis facilities across the nation. Both the nationally ranked Tigers and Lady Tigers enjoy state-of-the-art locker rooms, a squad room, and brand new showers and bathrooms. The “Dub” was totally refurbished after the 2002 season to include a media room, an equipment room and a ground-floor viewing area for handicapped tennis fans. Robinson Stadium, named in honor of LSU’s former winningest tennis coach, was completed in 1970 and is the site of the Tigers’ and Lady Tigers’ home outdoor matches. It features six varsity courts and six practice courts. Both the varsity and practice courts were resurfaced prior to the 2007 season, and new lights were added to the varsity courts after the season. The varsity courts feature an electronic scoreboard, along with six individual electronic scoreboards for each court that were added before the start of the 2009 season. The stadium can accommodate up to 550 spectators. Since Tony Minnis took over the LSU women’s tennis program, the Lady Tigers have accumulated a 178-77 overall record at home. Their best season there came in 2000, where the Lady Tigers remained perfect at home throughout the season for only the third time in the stadium’s history. They advanced all the way to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 that year as well. LSU has only had one losing season at home since the Tony Minnis era began in 1992 with the rest of the years producing above-.500 marks.

W.T. “Dub” Robinson Facts

LSU’s legendary men’s tennis coach W.T. Robinson, or “Dub” as he was lovingly known, single-handedly orchestrated the LSU tennis program’s rise to national prominence. In his nearly three decades as the head tennis coach at LSU, Robinson accumulated a 189-180-9 overall record and propelled the Tigers to a status among the nation’s elite. Working with limited resources and a financially-deprived tennis program, LSU’s rise to the top of collegiate tennis can be traced back to Robinson’s warm personality and quick wit. Always a favorite among his players, Robinson transformed a team that had not won a match in three years into a team that finished with a 12-1 record and a secondplace finish in the Southeastern Conference in only his sixth season at the helm. His great-granddaughter, Hannah Robinson, played for the Lady Tigers from 2006-2010. When the LSU tennis complex was completed in the fall of 1976, it was only natural that it was named after the person that built the program.

Camp directors Jeff Brown and Tony Minnis are both proven collegiate tennis players and coaches of nationally-ranked tennis programs. They each have the necessary skills and knowledge to improve the play of athletes ages 7-17. The Brown-Minnis Tiger Tennis Camp is equally excited to train anyone from beginners to tournament players. The BrownMinnis Tiger Tennis Camp experience is enhanced by the added direction of LSU assistant coaches Danny Bryan and Lisa Jackson. The W.T. “Dub” Robinson Tennis Stadium plays host to the BrownMinnis Tiger Tennis Camp each year. The Robinson Tennis Stadium is located on the west side of LSU’s campus and boasts 12 collegiate outdoor courts.

The 2010-11 athletic year was another successful one for LSU at the conference and national level. Women’s track and field claimed the SEC Indoor and Outdoor Championships, while the Tiger football team finished the season ranked eighth after compiling an 11-2 record and a Cotton Bowl victory. The women’s golf team earned its highest NCAA Championships finish ever by taking third as freshman Austin Ernst became the first player in school history to win the NCAA individual title. Men’s golfer John Peterson followed that up with an individual NCAA title of his own. Swimmer Jane Trepp shattered the SEC record in the 100 breaststroke and won the league title in the event.

HISTORY


About LSU Retired Jerseys

The retirement of the jerseys of Casanova, McDonald, Macklin and Augustus 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.

Rudy Macklin

WORLD-CLASS TIGERS

Rudy Macklin was a two-time basketball All-American selection during his Tiger career from 1976-81 during which time he became LSU’s all-time leading rebounder with 1,276 boards and the second-leading scorer in school history behind only the legendary Pete Maravich with 2,080 points. He led the Tigers to two Elite Eight appearances and the 1981 Final Four in Philadelphia. He still holds the school single game rebound record with 32, a mark like some of the great records in any sport that may never be broken.

Tommy Casanova

Muna Lee

Richard Thompson

Tommy Casanova is the only three-time All-American in the history of LSU football and is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame.

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

• Eight-time track All-American • 2008 Olympic Silver medalist

David Toms

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.

Patrick Peterson All-American Cornerback (2008-11) 2010 National Defensive Player of the Year 2011 NFL Draft No. 5 Pick

“I wanted to always go to a school that had a fan base that supported their team through thick and thin and that’s definitely LSU. They did it each and every Saturday from the students on down. There’s no place like Tiger Stadium. I swear it shakes. How could you not want to play for a school like this? Coach Miles was always a straight forward guy and honest with his players. That’s the type of coach I wanted to play for. He willed us to get better and always had your back. I will always be a Tiger for life and every chance I have to come back to Baton Rouge, I will.” “I was basically an in-state guy and had always thought about going to LSU for football and to get a good education. I made a lot of visits to different schools in my selection process, but everything always pointed toward LSU. My heart and my family guided me in that direction not just for the athletics, but for the academics as well. From top to bottom LSU has good people from the coaches on down the line.”

“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.”

Bradie James Linebacker (1999-2002) Dallas Cowboys starter

“LSU is my home. It was a place where I made my name and a place where I was able to come here and have fun. It was the best three years of my life. While you are here, have fun and become a master of time management. You need to do what you have to do to make it. Work hard. I have been blessed. Baton Rouge is the place that helped me become who I am. I will never forget this place.”

The office of the commissioner was formed in 1940 in Jackson due to the great amount of detail work developing, especially in recruiting and eligibility. Former Mississippi Governor Martin S. Conner took office as commissioner Aug. 21, 1940. Conner later became ill and the secretary of the conference, Dean N.W. Dougherty of Tennessee, served as acting commissioner during the fall of 1946. The office moved to Birmingham with the appointing of Bernie H. Moore as the second full-time commissioner on Feb. 21, 1948. Moore, a former LSU coach, guided the SEC to national respect in his 18-year tenure. A.M. (Tonto) Coleman succeeded Moore upon his retirement April 1, 1966. The Alabama native, who was reared in Texas and experienced in athletic coaching and administration, served six and a half years. Dr. H. Boyd McWhorter, then Dean of Arts and Sciences at Georgia, secretary of the league since 1967, accepted the position upon the retirement of Coleman Aug. 1, 1972. Under his leadership the SEC experienced unparalleled growth. In McWhorter’s

Schiller, an Air Force colonel and faculty chair at the U. S. Air Force Academy, followed McWhorter upon retirement, taking office Sept. 15, 1986. Under his guidance the SEC established itself as a leader in the areas of athletic scholarship and marketing. Roy F. Kramer succeeded Schiller on Jan. 10, 1990. Kramer, who has served on numerous NCAA committees, joined the league office after spending 12 years as athletic director at Vanderbilt. Kramer held the office of Commissioner for more than 12 years before retiring in the summer of 2002. Michael L. Slive, who served as Commissioner of Conference USA for seven years, was appointed the seventh Commissioner of the Southeastern Conference on July 2, 2002.

Mike THE TIGER Sneaux Day

On Dec. 11, 2008, a winter storm blanketed Baton Rouge that hadn’t been seen in decades. The early white Christmas gave Mike VI, LSU’s live Bengal/ Siberian tiger, a chance to relax and play in nearly two inches of accumulation.

History of Mike

Few mascots in the country are as admired as Mike the Tiger. LSU’s live Bengal mascot serves as the graphic image of all LSU athletic teams. The school has had six mascots, with the most recent, Mike VI, taking over the reign prior to the 2007 national championship football season. LSU veterinarian Dr. David Baker began the search for the young tiger after his predecessor, Mike V, died in May 2007 of renal failure at the age of 17. The six-year-old Bengal/ Siberian mix, formerly known as “Roscoe,” was donated to LSU by Great Cats of Idaville in Idaville, Ind., a nonprofit sanctuary and rescue facility for big cats and other large carnivores. Mike’s ride through Tiger Stadium before home games in a travel trailer topped by the LSU cheerleaders is a school tradition. Before entering the stadium, his trailer on wheels is parked next to the opponent’s locker room in the southeast end of the stadium. Opposing players must make their way past Mike’s trailer to reach their locker room. Tradition dictates that the Tigers will score a touchdown for every growl issued by Mike before a football game. For many years, Mike was prompted to roar by pounding on the cage. Objections of cruel punishment brought about the use of recorded growls to play to the crowd before the games. That practice was discontinued shortly afterward and today Mike GO ONLINE:

In the mid-1980’s, pranksters cut the locks on Mike IV’s cage and freed him in the early-morning hours just days before the annual LSU-Tulane clash. Mike roamed free, playfully knocking down several small pine trees in the area, before being trapped in the Bernie Moore Track Stadium where police used tranquilizer guns to capture and return the Bengal Tiger to his home. The incident was reminiscent of a kidnapping of Mike I many years ago by Tulane students before a Tiger-Green Wave battle.

The original Mike was purchased from the Little Rock Zoo in 1936 for $750, with money contributed by the student body. Originally known as “Sheik” at the time of his purchase, his name was changed to Mike to honor Mike Chambers who served as LSU’s athletic trainer when the first mascot was purchased. The first Mike was housed in the Baton Rouge Zoo for one year before a permanent home was constructed near Tiger Stadium. Mike I reigned for 20 years before dying of pneumonia.

Mike’s Habitat

In 2005, a new environment (above) was created for Mike that is 15,000 square feet in size with lush planting, a large live oak tree, a beautiful waterfall and a stream evolving from a rocky backdrop overflowing with plants and trees. The habitat has, as a backdrop, an Italianate tower - a campanile that creates a visual bridge to the Italianate architectural vernacular that is the underpinning of the image of the entire beautiful LSU campus. This spectacular habitat features state-of-theart technologies, research, conservation and husbandry programs, as well as educational, interpretive and recreational activities. It is, in essence, one of the largest and finest Tiger habitats in the United States.

Championship Cat During his tenure, Mike V reigned over a football national championship, five baseball national championships and a remarkable 23 track and field championships.

The second Mike served a brief reign, lasting only through the 1957 season before dying of pneumonia in the spring of 1958.

Just in time for the 1958 national championship season, Mike III was purchased from the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Wash., following a “national search” by then-athletic director Jim Corbett. The student body contributed $1,500 for the purchase of the tiger. Mike III served as mascot for 18 seasons, dying after the only losing season of his reign, as LSU posted a 5-6 record in 1975.

Mike IV reigned over Tiger athletics for 14 years after being donated to the school by August A. Busch III from the Dark Continent Amusement Park in Tampa, Fla, on Aug. 29, 1976. Born on May 15, 1974, Mike’s age and health were determining factors in his retirement to the Baton Rouge Zoo in 1990. Mike IV died of old age in March of 1995 at the age of 21.

Mike V was donated by Dr. Thomas and Caroline Atchison of the Animal House Zoological Park in Moulton, Ala. Dr. Sheldon Bivin of the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine traveled to Alabama and brought the baby tiger back to Baton Rouge. Born Oct. 18, 1989, the new tiger was introduced to LSU fans at a basketball game against Alabama in February of 1990. He officially began his reign on April 30, 1990, when he was moved into the tiger habitat across from Tiger Stadium. Mike V died on May 18, 2007, at the age of 17.

Mike VI arrived in Baton Rouge on Aug. 25, 2007, thanks to the donation by Great Cats of Idaville, Ind. He was officially designated as the successor to Mike V on Sept. 8, when LSU played host to Virginia Tech. Six days later, on Sept. 14, 2007, a ceremony was held to honor Mike V and dedicate the habitat to Mike VI.

Tony Minnis enters the 2012 spring season as the most decorated coach in LSU’s 36-year program history. Entering his 21st season as head coach of the LSU women’s tennis team, Minnis has collected a host of accolades that place him squarely among the most respected coaches in the nation. In 2009, with the Lady Tigers 5-2 win over Oregon, Minnis captured his 250th-career victory and was named the Southwest Regional Coach of the Year for the fifth time in his 18-year tenure. He enters 2012 just one win away from 275 career victories. “I don’t really think about that much,” he said. “One thing I’ve learned as a player and a coach is to instill in yourself and your team an attitude that when one thing is over you move on to the next. It’s nice to know I’ve had those accomplishments in my career here, but I try to focus on each year.” After his team finished the 2009 season ranked No. 24 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association polls with a 14-11 overall record and reached as high as No. 16, Minnis was selected as the head coach of the Southern Girls 18s National Team at the USTA National Teams Championships. The Baton Rouge native led the team to the USTA National Championship as it claimed the title for the first time since 1997. In the 2008-09 season, Minnis led his Lady Tiger team to the NCAA Tournament for the 14th time in his 18-year tenure as he was named the Southwestern Regional Coach of the Year for the fifth time in his career. Minnis also received the award in 1995, 1999, 2004 and 2007. The Lady Tigers advanced to the second round of the tournament for the second consecutive season. The team reached numerous milestones under Minnis’ direction in 2009 as the Lady Tigers defeated the Florida Gators for the first time in program history. Outside of the SEC, the Lady Tigers knocked off Texas A&M, 4-3, in College

Station, Texas, for the first time since 1997. In the fall, Megan Falcon and Mykala Hedberg advanced to the finals of the ITA Southwest Regional Doubles Championships, and there the duo claimed the first championship win during the Minnis era. After a season in 2005-06 in which LSU did not make the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 11 years, Minnis guided a youthful, inexperienced Lady Tiger team to the NCAA Tournament in 2006-07 as the Southeastern Conference Western Division co-champions. The 2006-07 season marked the second time LSU finished atop the SEC West standings since the conference switched to Eastern and Western divisions in 2002. More than that, Minnis led the team to the top of the SEC West standings even though three, four or sometimes five newcomers started during the season. The team also advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament for the eighth time in Minnis’s career as LSU’s head coach. Minnis was instrumental in bringing in three-time singles All-American Falcon, who finished her sophomore season in 2007 at 38-3 and raced all the way to the semifinals of the NCAA Individual Championships. Falcon’s semifinal finish was the furthest any LSU player has reached at the NCAA Individual Championships, surpassing two other Minnis recruits - Bruna Colosio in 2000 and 2001 and Suzana Rodrigues in 1994 - who both made it to the quarterfinals. Falcon was also named the SEC Player of the Year in 2007, the second player under Minnis to receive the honor after Colosio was selected as the league’s top player in 2001. With the conclusion of her senior campaign in 2009, Falcon was listed No. 8 on LSU’s all-time winningest players list, and she became the only Lady Tiger in the program to earn three singles AllAmerica honors.

COACHES

Besides great play on the tennis court, Minnis has also stressed hard work in the classroom, and the results have shown as the team was named an ITA All-Academic Team with a cumulative grade point average of 3.385 in the 2007-08 year. Not only was the team as a whole honored for its performance off the courts, but a school-record seven Lady Tigers were named ITA Scholar-Athletes for maintaining a grade point average of at least a 3.50. In 2009, five Lady Tigers earned ITA ScholarAthlete accolades, and fifth-year senior Staten Spencer became the first women’s tennis player at LSU to earn an NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship. Minnis returned to his hometown in 1992 to take over the LSU women’s tennis team. By earning his 80th career victory at LSU in 1997, he passed Phillip Campbell (1984-88) as the winningest women’s tennis coach in Tigers history. Minnis came to LSU knowing what it takes to excel in the sport. He was a tennis star at Southwestern Louisiana from 1984-88. He served as team captain his freshman and senior seasons and is USL’s all-time winningest singles player with an impressive 94-40 career mark. He followed his playing career with a job as an assistant tennis coach at USL as well as working as the club professional at several tennis clubs in the Lafayette, La., area. But, Minnis said, his LSU experience has taught him the most about the game. “I’ve learned a lot over my career, especially about how very, very important it is to communicate with your players,” he said. “I know the roller coasters that come with coaching and I’ve learned to take them in stride. I have been so fortunate to be in this tremendous environment at LSU because you get to learn from every single coach here. There are some great coaches and that’s the beauty of having an athletic department as good as this one.”

Minnis’ LSU Coaching Records

With those years of experience and lessons has come a pile of awards and achievements for Minnis and his Lady Tigers. In 2004, Minnis guided the team to a final ITA ranking of No. 20 in a season that included an NCAA Tournament berth, an SEC Western Division Championship and an appearance in the SEC Tournament semifinals. The Lady Tigers lost to eventual SEC Champion Florida. During the 2001 campaign, Minnis and the Lady Tigers put together a solid campaign and finished the season with a 14-10 overall record. The squad advanced to the NCAA Tournament and finished the year with a No. 27 national ranking. Bruna Colosio, who graduated after a recordbreaking senior season in 2002, was one of the top five players in the nation and the 2001 SEC Player of the Year. She excelled under Minnis’ constant tutelage and received All-America status in both 2000 and 2001. During an unexpected run at the NCAA Championships in 2000, Minnis led LSU to its second Sweet 16 appearance in school history. The Lady Tigers upset sixth-ranked Pepperdine, 5-4, in the second round of the tournament. The upset is considered the most impressive victory in team history. LSU fell in the Sweet 16 to USC. In 1999, Minnis was named the Southwest Regional Coach of the Year after reaching the NCAA Tournament for the fifth straight season. The season was supposed to be a rebuilding one, but Minnis led his squad to upset victories over both 10th-ranked Tennessee and 15th-ranked Arkansas on its way to a final ranking of No. 28 in the nation. In 1997, Minnis was named the SEC Coach of the Year when he led LSU to the regional finals. The Lady Tigers advanced to the championship match of the Southwest regional by beating Texas A&M, 5-0. Minnis was recognized as the Louisiana Coach of the Year for the third time in four years. Senior Suzana Rodrigues finished her career ranked fifth in all-time singles wins at 10842 overall. She and teammate Laura Olave won the 1996 National Clay Court Doubles title. The tandem earned All-America honors after placing

10th in the final doubles rankings. LSU posted its highest national ranking ever under Minnis in April of 1995 when the Lady Tigers leapt from No. 30 to No. 15 after upsetting 11th-ranked Tennessee, 5-3, in the opening round of the NCAA Championships. The Lady Tigers fell to eventual NCAA runner-up Florida, 5-0, in round two. Minnis was named the Southwest Region and Louisiana Coach of the Year after guiding the Lady Tigers to their first-ever win at the NCAAs and their first postseason appearance since 1991. As a player, Minnis competed in the 1988 NCAA Team Championships and was a semifinalist at the NIT in 1986. He had a 37-6 three-set record in his first three seasons at USL. During his four years there, the Ragin’ Cajuns posted a 78-39 overall record and finished each year ranked in the Top 25. In his senior season, USL was ranked 15th in the final polls and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Championships. Minnis comes from a family loaded with tennis experience.

Lisa

Jackson ASSISTANT COACH • 7TH SEASON

2007 Southwest Regional Assistant Coach of the Year

Lisa Jackson is entering her seventh year as assistant head coach for the Lady Tigers. She has proven instrumental in the LSU women’s tennis program’s success throughout her tenure. Two seasons ago, Jackson helped guide the Lady Tigers to their second consecutive NCAA second round appearance. Jackson has played a vital part in the Lady Tigers’ recruitment efforts as she traveled across the country and the world to secure top-notch players who will contribute to the program’s future success. Jackson was instrumental in the 10th ranked prospect in the nation, Rebecca Bodine’s recruitment. In 2010, she helped bring in a stellar recruiting class which included a pair of five-star recruits in Ariel Morton and Yvette Vlaar and 2010 ITA Junior College Player of the Year Olivia Howlett. The prior season she helped lure five-star recruits Kaitlin Burns and Ebie Wilson and four-star prospect Keri Frankenberger to campus. Jackson assisted in signing two top-ranked recruits, highlighted by five-star recruit and Louisiana native Whitney Wolf. Before the 2006-07 season, Jackson, along with head coach Tony Minnis, reeled in the nation’s 17th-ranked recruiting class according

to tennisrecruiting.net, which included current players Hannah Robinson, a four-star recruit out of Monroe, and Nicole Kantor, a five-star player from St. Louis. Not only has Jackson been an outstanding recruiter for LSU, but she has also been a hands-on coach, picking up the racket and practicing with the team to help them improve. It is not odd to see Jackson at practice volleying back and forth with a player to provide them with a practice partner for the day. Her hands-on approach helped the Lady Tigers rebound from a 12-12 season in 2005-06 to go 16-10 the following year and guide the team back to the NCAA Tournament. Because of her efforts and the team’s improvement, Jackson was awarded by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association as the 2007 Southwest Regional Assistant Coach of the Year. Jackson has also played an intricate role in helping Minnis manage the day-to-day operations of running the program, something Jackson did when she was at UL-Lafayette. She served as the Ragin Cajuns’ associate head coach for two years before arriving at LSU. “She was like a head coach at ULL, so she has brought that added experience of being a head coach,” Minnis commented on his

assistant. “She has a lot of enthusiasm, and the work ethic she brings is a real positive for our program.” In her first year in Lafayette, Jackson led the ULL tennis team to a 7-14 record, a vast improvement from the team’s 1-13 finish a year before. In 2005, she went even beyond that, leading the team to a 10-9 finish, its first winning season since 2001. “I think one of the things that was so impressive and one of the major reasons I looked to hire her was what she was able to do at Lafayette,” Minnis said. “We competed against ULL the past couple years and saw the major improvement in the team and how much better they got in that short time span. I was very impressed with what she did for that program.” Coming all the way from Johannesburg, South Africa, Jackson started her own college career at William Carey College in Gulfport, Miss. She was selected to the NAIA second-team All-America squad and was also the MVP of her team while at William Carey. After one season she decided to transfer and made the move to the other side of Louisiana where she played for the University of Texas at Arlington for the remainder of her collegiate career. Her impressive career there included earning a top-30 national ranking in doubles, becoming a two-time recipient of the Southland Conference Player of the Year Award in 1999 and 2000 and helping her team win the Southland Conference Championship all three years. At UT-Arlington, Jackson also earned both her bachelor’s (2001) and master’s (2003) degrees in psychology. She stayed on staff at UT-Arlington as a graduate assistant with the tennis program until earning her master’s degree.

2010-2011 Season Review

2011 Season Review The LSU Lady Tiger tennis team finished the 2010-11 spring season with an 11-13 overall record, and a 5-6 SEC mark. The season saw the Lady Tigers run off a season high five-straight wins during March, before meeting greater resistance as they reached the back-end of the difficult SEC schedule. Sophomore Ebie Wilson led the squad with a 12-6 singles record as Mobile, Ala., product began the season by winning 11 of her first 13 matches before suffering a back injury in late March. Yvette Vlaar highlighted an impressive freshman season by placing second on the squad and led all LSU freshmen with 11 spring victories. After getting off to a slow start, the Weert, Netherlands, product rallied to win 10 of her final 14 singles matches and finished the spring with a solid 4-3 SEC record. The Lady Tigers were led on the doubles courts by Vlaar and sophomore Keri Frankenberger. The LSU duo went 9-7, including going 3-0 at the No. 1 post. Wilson and freshman Ariel Morton also put together a solid campaign in doubles play. The twosome closed the season with a 6-4 clip including a perfect 3-0 SEC mark.

Young Lady Tigers shine The young 2010-11 squad experienced a fair amount of adversity in 2011. The green Lady Tigers experienced a good deal of adversity in the early part of the spring campaign as they took just one of their first five matches of 2011, all on the road. The team used this experience to improve, however as they took seven of their 11 matches in March. Whitney Wolf and Kaitlin Burns were among the LSU leaders in the month of March as the two underclassmen went 4-2 as doubles partners playing a major role in the Lady Tigers’ stellar month.

Success at Home Baton Rouge was certainly home sweet home for LSU in 2011 as the Lady Tigers compiled a 7-5 record inside the friendly confines of “the Dub,” as opposed to just 4-6 away from campus. LSU’s success at home was highlighted by three sweep victories.

HISTORY


1976 Lady Tigers: Inaugural Season

Illustrious TENNIS HISTORY In the fall of 1973 the Lady Tigers’ tennis team was formed as a club sport with Pat Newman as head coach and Jay McCreary as the Coordinator of Club Sports. The fledgling program began with eight players who bought their own racquets and balls. It has since developed into a national collegiate tennis power over the decades. From the early days of limited schedules and funding, the LSU program has come a long way, becoming a dominant tennis power in the state of Louisiana and making its presence known regionally and nationally. In 1975, the Lady Tigers signed their first collegiate player to an athletic scholarship for the following season, acquiring Ann Ellis from Houston. Next was Karen McCarter, a walk-on from a big tennis family in Shreveport, La. The following year, Kay McDaniel, another Shreveport product, and Elizabeth Palfrey of Baton Rouge joined the Lady Tiger family, and LSU was on its way to becoming a national power, finishing in the top 20 in the nation for the first time. The Lady Tigers experienced an outstanding recruiting season in 1976-77, signing the No. 1-ranked player in the South in Ebie Taylor of Mobile, Ala. From Texas came two outstanding players in Lisa Boettcher of Pasadena and Carol Reger of Fort Worth. With those players, LSU won the state championship, placed in the top 10 at nationals and produced the first Lady Tiger All-Americans in tennis, Kay McDaniel and Ebie Taylor. The program has continued to flourish, finishing in the top 30 of the final national rankings 11 times since 1991.

WOMEN’S TENNIS

All-Americans In its 33-year history, the LSU women’s tennis program has produced an All-American 12 times. Only three years after the official inaugural season, two Lady Tigers were named All-Americans in 1978 as Ebie Taylor and Kay McDaniel, Nos. 2 and 12 on the all-time wins list at LSU, respectively, earned the honor. Sixteen years later, the next selection came in the form of Suzana Rodrigues, who earned her status as a singles All-American as a freshman in 1994. Fifth on the list of all-time wins, Rodrigues was named an All-American again as a senior in 1997, that year receiving recognition for her outstanding doubles play. Her partner Laura Olave shared the All-America distinction that year. Another pair was recognized as All-Americans in 2000 when Bruna Colosio and Ana Paula Mores won the award. Fittingly, they each ended their careers with the same number of match wins, 97, which places them in a tie for eighth on the all-time wins list. Colosio was named a singles All-American again in 2001, finishing her career as one of the top players to wear the Purple and Gold.

LSU’s latest All-American, Megan Falcon had arguably the most successful season in Lady Tiger history as a sophomore in 2006-07. The Alameda, Calif., native enjoyed a stellar debut, reeling off win after win at the ITA All-American Championships in the fall of 2006. By the time the tournament ended for Falcon, she had defeated nine ranked opponents, including five in the top 50. After her fast start, Falcon began the spring of 2007 ranked No. 2 in the nation. Playing all of her dual season matches at the No. 1 spot in singles, Falcon went 24-0 and ran her record to an amazing 34-2 heading into the NCAA Individual Championships. Accomplishing something no other Lady Tiger had ever done before, Falcon raced to the semifinals of the championships, only dropping one set along the way. En route to the final four, Falcon knocked off four ranked opponents, pushing her record

against ranked adversaries to 26-2 on the year. However, Falcon’s pursuit of the individual national championship was denied when USC’s Lindsey Nelson defeated her, 7-6(2), 6-2. Overall, Falcon finished 38-3 and tied for seventh in school history with 38 wins in a single season in 2006-07. After an amazing individual season, Falcon deservingly received several accolades. She was named an ITA All-American in singles - finishing ranked No. 2 in the nation - the 2007 Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, First Team AllSEC, Southwest Regional Player to Watch, ITA National Co-Player to Watch, Honda Award Finalist, LSWA Louisiana Player of the Year and the LSWA Newcomer of the Year.

For the second straight season Falcon led LSU in wins with a 27-7 record, including 12 victories over ranked opponents, and she finished the year ranked No. 15. Falcon again captured the ITA All-American Championships consolation title in the fall. Just like in 2007, Falcon earned First-Team All-SEC honors and was named LSWA Louisiana Player of the Year as well as earning ITA Scholar-Athlete recognition for the first time in her career. For her senior campaign, Falcon completed her incredible run at LSU, listing eighth on the program’s all-times wins list with a 99-18 career record.

1978 SINGLES ALL-AMERICAN Kay McDaniel, who played for LSU from 1975-79, racked up 92 wins in a Lady Tigers’ uniform, a number that places her 12th on the list of all-time winningest players in LSU women’s tennis history. She is also third on the list of match wins in a single season with 43 in 1977-78. McDaniel became the first LSU women’s tennis All-America selection, along with Ebie Taylor, in 1978, a year that saw the Lady Tigers go 19-5 and earn the title of Louisiana AIAW Champion. She next toured the professional courts from 1980-86, competing against such players as Billie Jean King, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova and Steffi Graf. She once ranked as high as No. 30 in singles (1983) and No. 20 in doubles (1986). The United States Tennis Association Tennessee Hall of Fame named McDaniel to its list of 2005 inductees, and she was honored at a banquet on Feb. 5, 2005, at the Nashville Marriott in Nashville, Tenn.

LSU Chancellor/NCAA Faculty Rep

LSU

Dr. Michael V. Martin Chancellor, LSU

Dr. Michael V. Martin assumed the chancellorship of Louisiana State University and A&M College on August 1, 2008. 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. Other recent awards include his recognition as a powerbroker by The New Mexico Business Weekly in 2006, being named Outstanding Alumnus of Minnesota State University Mankato in 2006, and receiving the NMSU Social Justice Award in 2005. Dr. Martin is involved in a wide array of professional and community organizations and activities. An active scholar, Dr. Martin has authored numerous book chapters and articles for academic journals, trade publications, and the popular press and recently published pieces for The Chronicle of Higher Education and University Business. Some of his philosophy is summed up in the following quote: “It is the tradition of land-grant universities to be non-traditional,” written as part of a 2001 article titled “The Land-Grant University in the 21st Century,” published in the Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics. He traced the history of the land-grant movement from the mid-1800s and concluded that “the fundamental landgrant principles of accessibility, practical as well as classical education, research and discovery in the public interest, and connectedness to all the people remain powerful and profound.” A native of Crosby, Minn., Dr. Martin earned a bachelor’s degree in business and economics and a master’s degree in economics at Mankato State College (Minnesota State University) in Minnesota. He received his Ph.D. in applied economics from the University of Minnesota in 1977. Dr. Martin and his wife, Jan, have two children, both adopted from South Korea. Amanda, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, is a graphic artist in Saint Paul, Minn. Sam, who holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota and a master’s from Sarah Lawrence College, is a genetics counselor at Beth Israel Hospital in New York City.

LSU

Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics

Joe Alleva

LSU Vice Chancellor/Director of Athletics Joe Alleva continues to bring unprecedented national recognition to LSU as Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics. Under Alleva’s leadership, LSU enjoys one of the country’s premier athletics programs with success on and off the field of competition. Now in his fourth season at LSU, Alleva is dedicated to athletic and academic excellence, and 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 joined the LSU family on April 4, 2008 after a highly successful tenure as director of athletics at Duke University for 10 years. Alleva’s role at LSU was further expanded in August of 2009 when vice chancellor was added to his title by the LSU Board of Supervisors. It is the first time in school history that the director of athletics has also held a vice chancellor position. Alleva was recently appointed to a five-year term on the prestigious NCAA Men’s Basketball Committee, reinforcing his position as one of the most respected athletic administrators in the country. Upon his arrival at LSU, Alleva unveiled a strategic master plan for the LSU athletics program -- “LSU: Thru and True” -- to ensure the advancement and future of LSU Athletics as an exemplary program. The central mission of the plan is to create an environment for student-athletes to reach their ultimate potential, prepare them to be champions in life and to set out goals and values for the entire athletics program. Alleva’s vision for LSU athletics facilities includes plans to enhance the appearance of Tiger Stadium and transform the North Stadium Drive corridor into a showplace for the university. Under his direction, LSU’s world-renowned track and field program received a state-of the-art running surface last year when a new track was installed in Bernie Moore Stadium. Extensive renovations to the Tiger soccer facility will be completed this fall, and future plans include a new gymnastics practice facility, a tennis complex, and renovations to the Maravich Center and field house. Alleva directed a major renovation to the University Club golf course that was completed in September 2010 and allows the LSU men’s and women’s golf teams to compete on one of the most challenging courses in the country. The renovated course helped prepare Tiger golfers John Peterson and Austin Ernst, respectively, to win 2011 NCAA men’s and women’s individual championships, marking the first time both titles were claimed by players from the same school. The Lady Tiger golfers were third in the final team standings, marking the highest finish in LSU history. LSU Athletics completed another highly successful year in 2010-11, highlighted by a Fighting Tiger football squad that posted an 11-2 mark – including a Cotton Bowl victory – and finished the season ranked No. 8 in the nation. The 2010-11 athletic year also featured Top 5 national finishes both indoors and outdoors by the men’s and women’s track and field teams. INTRO

PREVIEW

In 2008-09, all 20 LSU sports competed in NCAA postseason play for the first time in school history and the Tiger baseball team won the national championship. This past year LSU ranked second among Southeastern Conference teams in the Learfield Director’s Cup All-Sports standings and finished in the Top 20 for the sixth year in a row. Alleva ensures that the Cox Communications Academic Center for Student-Athletes is a first-class facility that provides student-athletes the resources necessary for success in the classroom and personal development. The facility was recently enhanced by the addition of a media training center that gives student-athletes valuable assistance in improving their communications skills. And with a strong emphasis on community service and outreach programs, the implementation under Alleva’s direction of the “Geaux Givers” program fosters a relationship between the local community and LSU student-athletes, who regularly participate in philanthropic events. In addition, Alleva has bolstered the department’s L-Club program to reach out and connect with former student-athletes. Alleva oversees a staff of outstanding coaches and he made two critical additions to LSU’s coaching staff in the off-season. He lured the dynamic Nikki Caldwell to LSU to coach the Lady Tiger basketball team and then hired Beth Torina to direct the Tiger softball program, bringing a new wealth of knowledge and passion to the LSU women’s sports program. Alleva is an innovator with bold ideas that benefit not only LSU but all of Greater Baton Rouge. He has been instrumental in the planning of the Bayou Country Superfest, COACHES

LADY TIGERS

REVIEW

a two-day country music concert and festival held in Tiger Stadium each spring. The event attracts nearly 100,000 visitors to the LSU campus and makes a tremendous economic impact upon the local community. Alleva has served on numerous national committees throughout his career including the Football Bowl Certification Committee, the NCAA Division I Championships/ Competition Cabinet and several Southeastern Conference and Atlantic Coast Conference committees. He became director of athletics at Duke in 1998 and his impressive tenure there 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. Alleva, whose hometown is Suffern, N.Y., 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. While at Duke, 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. He 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. Alleva and his wife, Annie, have three children, J.D., Jeff, and Jenny. HISTORY
