Set at the Lady Demon Diamond, NSU will use the Southland Conference tournament as fuel to qualify for the postseason. In 2012, the Lady Demons (19-31, 7-14 SLC) fell just short of a post-season berth, finishing eighth in the conference. Coaching Fourth-year head coach Donald Pickett enters this season in hope of a post-season opportunity due to the amount of knowledge and talent involved in this year’s lineup. Pickett has made some changes to the coaching staff with the addition of AsTara McKenney was named to the preseason All-SLC first-team. sistant coaches Amy Hooks and Amanda Locke, both standout players from North Mesquite, Texas. Hooks finished first in career home runs (36) at Texas, along with many other records and awards. Locke recently graduated from softball powerhouse Alabama, where she played a vital role in the Tide’s first-ever national championship crown. The Lineup As an All-Conference preseason first team pick, coach Pickett will look to junior Tara McKenney to lead the defense alongside fellow classmate Cali Burke. McKenney earned All-Southland Conference second team, and All-Academic second team accolades for the 2012 season, while Burke was named All-Southland honorable mention. The duo will play key roles at the plate as well, notching a combined 96 hits last season. “Tara and Cali have been excellent offensive members since they’ve been here,” said Pickett. “We’re looking to them to help us at the top of the lineup to get on base.” Cali Burke earned All-SLC honorable mention last season.

Sophomore Cassandra Barefield will anchor the Lady Demon offense after leading the team with eight home runs in 2012, including two in the season finale against North Texas. Barefield also finished the 2012 season with the highest slugging percentage, and fourth on the team in on-base percentage, with .517 and .350 respectively. Pitching The pitching staff is led by a well-rounded group of seniors, including Booke Boening, Paige Cavallin and utility Kylie Roos. Roos went 8-13 from the mound last season facing 526 batters, striking out 85 in 131.2 innings. Boening returns to the circle after recovering from injury. She threw for 76.2 innings in 2012, striking out 61 batters. “With the amount of experience we have in the circle, our pitching should be strong,” said Pickett. The 2013 squad welcomed newcomers Kaylee Guidry and Bailee Gray, both pitchers. Guidry is a junior transfer from LSU-Eunice who played a key role in the success of LSUE as it finished the 2012 season as NJCAA Division II national runner-up. Gray, a native of Mansfield, TX, led Mansfield High School to three bi-district championships, and was named Utility Player of the District last season. “We’re really excited about this group of returners and newcomers; they bring a lot of experience and talent to the field,” said Pickett.

Senior Kylie Roos will lead from the mound this season.

DONALD PICKETT

Donald Pickett enters his fourth year at the helm after guiding Northwestern State to its first conference tournament appearance in five years. Pickett coached NSU to its first winning season since the 2005 season, and has improved the Lady Demons’ record each year since he arrived. Three of his recruits were voted onto the 2011 All-Louisiana Collegiate Softball Team, and two earned Second-Team All-SLC accolades. NSU started the 2011 conference season strong with a three-game sweep over McNeese State at home to kick things off, and then challenged SLC foes Texas State and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi at the conference tournament. It is safe to say that the head coach is on the right track in terms of building a winning tradition and strengthening the Lady Demon softball program. Though Pickett is not nearly satisfied, he is driven and has big ambitions. He eyes down the Southland Conference championship and a NCAA Tournament berth, while lifting the Northwestern State softball program to national prominence and annual championship-level success. “We want to win the conference and the conference tournament. Those are the two main goals that we have this season,” Pickett said. “We have the talent to accomplish it. We just have to continue to work hard, put ourselves in good situations and execute when we need to.” He knows what it takes. He hired assistant coaches who have been there, too. Both on and off the field, the Lady Demons seek to achieve the highest amount of success. In the classroom, the Lady Demons ranked top-five among both Southland Conference peer and Louisiana institutions in graduation success rates. On the field, their approach first took root in the 2010 season and especially in recruiting, where their efforts resulted in the best turnaround in Division I softball from the year before. The plan is in action. Facility improvements are tangible. A solid approach to coaching, teaching and managing the program is clear to see. To see where Pickett plans to take NSU, you need only see where he’s already been as an assistant coach. Pickett helped Tennessee-Chattanooga to three NCAA Tournament appearances and the brink of a Women’s College World Series berth while on the Mocs’ staff. The 34-year-old Pickett begins his 15th season of collegiate coaching experience. He spent two years helping establish a brand-new program at Memphis after working in a pair of highly successful programs at UT-Chattanooga and Chattanooga State Community College. At Chattanooga State, Pickett was part of a staff that coached the team to three topfive finishes in the junior college softball world series along

with three regional and conference championships. He also coached the Austin (Tenn.) Eagles American Softball Association summer team to four national tournament appearances and two top-five finishes in the ASA nationals. Pickett learned about the Northwestern coaching post from Pat Murphy, the coach of College World Series participant Alabama, who was among several nationally-prominent coaches consulted during the summer 2008 search for a new Lady Demons head coach. “Starting with his high level of character and integrity, Donald Pickett has an amazing reputation in the collegiate softball world. He will serve as a good role model for our studentathletes while also providing them with the motivation and coaching needed to return Northwestern State to the point of

He loves the game of softball and loves working with young people. I think he will do a fantastic job.” In Pickett’s first season as assistant coach at his alma mater, the 2001 Lady Mocs opened the season with back-toback no-hitters and knocked off top-25 teams in Ohio State and Baylor, rolling to a 44-15 record while never dropping more than two games in a row. The Lady Mocs posted two upset wins over top-seeded and No. 12 ranked Florida Atlantic in the NCAA Regionals. UTC then just missed capturing a berth in the World Series after narrow losses to Georgia Tech and Florida State. “There may not be a better fundamental coach out there,” said UTC’s Reed. “He is a good person, the type of person your family would like to be associated with, and he is perhaps one of the most ‘up and coming’ young coaches out there right now.” A strong reference came from an in-state rival of UTC’s, head coach Torey Acheson at Tennessee Tech. “At Tennessee-Chattanooga, those players all became better under him......technically, his knowledge base is really good....he is an upstanding human being; he was raised right.” Said Laura Mincy, assistant athletic director and SWA at UTC: “Donald is Coach Donald Pickett with his wife Paige and daughter Ainsley. very determined and paschallenging for Southland Conference titles and NCAA post- sionate about college softball. season berths,” said NSU director of athletics Greg Burke, He’s a gem.” That’s what he says - the gem announcing Pickett’s hiring.

In the first Economic Development: capital campaign in its history, the university received $32.7 million to far exceed its goal of $18.84 ................................................Dr. Darlene Williams million. That funding included the establishment of numerous endowed chairs and professorships to Executive Assistant to the President: enhance academic programs at the university. In addition to the private funding, Northwestern has ............................................................ Robert Crew received more grant monies in recent years from state and federal agencies and private foundations than at any time since its founding in 1884. Webb has also expanded the university’s outreach by spearheading the development at NSU of the largest electronic education and distance learning network of any university in Louisiana. NSU offers courses and degree programs to students across the nation and world through Internet and compressed video. Millions of dollars have been obtained during Webb’s presidency for new and renovated facilities. A new $6.9 million Wellness, Recreation and Activity Center opened on the campus in 2005; and Morrison Hall, the Family and Consumer Sciences Building, and Williamson Hall have been completely renovated and restored. A new Student Services Center on the site of the former West Caspari Hall was completed in May 2012. Over $32 million in construction by a private company has added two modified residence halls to the campus in recent years. Funding has also been obtained to rebuild the East Caspari Hall and replace the underground electrical distribution system. Northwestern academic programs and athletic teams continue to receive positive national recognition. The Computer Information Systems program, for example, won five consecutive national championships in academic competition in systems analysis, and the NSU men’s basketball team defeated Iowa in the NCAA national championship tournament. A former center on the Northwestern football team, Webb is an avid supporter of the university’s athletic programs and has held positions of leadership at the national level in intercollegiate athletics. He has served as chair of the board of directors of the Southland Conference and has been a member of the prestigious NCAA Executive Council and the NCAA Division I Board of Directors that oversee all major policy decisions by the governing body for major college sports. He currently serves as the Southland Conference representative on the NCAA Presidential Advisory Group. A 1965 graduate of Northwestern in mathematics and business education,Webb earned a master of science degree in mathematics from NSU in 1966. He received a doctorate in education from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1971 with a concentration in mathematics and research. Webb was a member of the faculty of Longwood College in Farmville, Va, from 1966 until 1974. He served as Director of Higher Education and Teacher Certification in the Louisiana Department of Education from 1974 through 1976. He moved to Southeastern Louisiana University in 1976 and in 13 years there held positions as director of institutional research, EEO officer, registrar and member of the mathematics faculty. He became Dean of Instruction and Graduate Studies and professor of mathematics at Northwestern in 1989. In that position, he was responsible for campus-wide policy development, planning, advancement, and review of both graduate and undergraduate programs. While Webb was in that position, graduate enrollment increased by 35 percent, and internal funding for faculty research increased by 200 percent. As dean,Webb proposed the concept for NSU’s successful Freshman Connection Program and served as a member of the writing team for a grant proposal that resulted in a five year, $1.7 million Title III grant to improve student retention. He also chaired the steering committee for NSU’s Self Study for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. He has been active in the community as a member of the board of directors of the Natchitoches Chamber of Commerce and as a member of the Association for the Preservation of Historic Natchitoches, the Natchitoches Historic Foundation, the Natchitoches-Northwestern Symphony Society, Rotary Club, and the First Baptist Church. Webb and his wife Brenda have two daughters, both honor graduates of Northwestern. Tamara and her husband, former NSU All-America baseball pitcher Reggie Gatewood, live in Long Valley,N.J., with their children Tyler and Ava. Lauren is married to former outstanding NSU baseball player Nick Simokaitis, and they live in St. Louis with their sons Nicholas and Benjamin. Randy and Brenda Webb

Jerry Pierce

Vice President of External Affairs Jerry Pierce is the Cal Ripken of the Northwestern State athletic program. Day after day, year after year, Pierce is in the lineup, fielding his position with aplomb, and delivering at the plate, knocking a ball out of the park from time to time but always taking an understated profile, seeing himself as a role player. Beginning his 48th year on the university’s staff, Pierce’s impact on NSU and the city of Natchitoches can’t be measured as easily as Ripkin’s Baseball Hall of Fame statistics, but they are equally indelible. He begins his 22nd year as vice president of external affairs at Northwestern. A significant aspect of his job is oversight of intercollegiate athletics. Pierce works closely with athletic director Greg Burke and all NSU coaches and staff members to keep Northwestern athletics competing at a championship level week after week, month after month and year after year. Pierce is an avid tennis player who has been a member of USTA teams that have won more than a dozen state championships, five regional titles and one national championship. Well before moving into the executive position, Pierce had already served his alma mater, adopted hometown and state with distinction. In his role as vice NSU Athletic Council president, he oversees university operations in athletics, alumni and development, public and media relations and assists President Jody Biscoe (Chair) Lyn Christopher Dr. Randall J. Webb in governmental affairs activities. Many of Dwight Epperson those duties were his since the 1970s as he worked under four preKelee Grimes vious presidents as Northwestern advanced from NAIA to NCAA Marcus Jones College Division to NCAA Division I athletic status in 1977. Jennifer Kelly A 1961 graduate of Northwestern, Pierce served as trainer for Melissa Kelly the Demon football team during his college years, working closely Natalie Laurence with legendary coach Jack Clayton. After earning his journalism Tara McKenney (Student) degree, Pierce went to work for the New Orleans Times Picayune, Dr. Charles Pellegrin serving as a reporter and editor. He was named executive sports Dr. Pat Pierson editor at the age of 24. Kristi Simms In 1965, he chose to raise his two sons in Natchitoches and Dr. Mark Swanstrom returned to NSU as sports information director. He was promoted Ed Ward to news bureau director two years later and assumed additional Will Watson (Student) responsibilities in athletics, alumni affairs and other areas through Dr. Randall Webb the years. He founded, in 1972, the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame facility Ex-Officio Members in Prather Coliseum on the NSU campus, providing a home for an Greg Burke entity created in 1958. He established annual induction activities Carrie Crowell that remain in place nearly four decades later, and served as direcDustin Eubanks tor of the Hall for 19 years until his promotion to vice president Roxanne Freeman forced him to step aside from the volunteer post. Dr. Patrice Moulton He helped guide Northwestern into three athletic conferDr. Vicki Parrish ences (Trans America, 1979; Gulf Star, 1983; Southland, 1987) Jerry Pierce and NCAA Division I status in 1977. He is a past president of the Southland and has served the conference through other offices and committee positions. In 1994, he was named one of Louisiana’s 20 most influential sports figures by the TimesPicayune. Also on the list were New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson, LSU athletic director Joe Dean and basketball coach Dale Brown, and Grambling football coaching legend Eddie Robinson. His salesmanship and managerial skills were instrumental in convincing Tri-Star Productions to film the 1989 smash hit movie Steel Magnolias, with an all-star cast including Julia Roberts, Sally Field and Dylan McDermott in Natchitoches and on the NSU campus. The movie’s impact on tourism in Natchitoches continues to resonate more than two decades later. Pierce is regarded as one of the most effective legislative liaisons for Louisiana’s higher education system. He is also a popular after dinner speaker and master of ceremonies who has spoken at hundreds of events since 1965. In addition to his administrative responsibilities, Pierce is a member of the Journalism Department faculty. He is the author of one book and editor of two others and has written thousands of editorials, columns, features and other articles for newspapers and magazines. Pierce and his wife Regina, a teacher, live on Cane River Lake in Natchitoches. He has two sons, Randy and Rick, both NSU graduates; and three grandchildren, twins Evan and Amanda, 22, and Miranda, 11, and two stepchildren, Nicholas and Natalie.

Greg Burke

Director of Athletics The Burke File

AGE: 56 (Born Oct. 22, 1956) • HOMETOWN: Alliance, Ohio • HIGH SCHOOL: Marlington ’74 • COLLEGE: Mt. Union ’78 (cum laude) • POSTGRADUATE: Kent State ’86 • BEFORE HE WAS A.D.: Sports writer, Alliance (Ohio) Review, 1972-78; director of news and sports information, Hiram (Ohio) College (1978-85); administrative intern, NSU athletics, 1985-86; director, NSU Athletic Association, 1986-92; director of athletic development, University of Akron, 1992-96. •BIG FAN OF: Cleveland Browns, Indians and Cavaliers • INTERESTS: Working out, watching ESPN and VH1 Classic, family outings. In his 17th year as director of athletics at Northwestern State, Greg Burke has received national acclaim for the job he’s done in his adopted hometown. Burke has been athletics director at Northwestern since Aug. 29, 1996, when his first day included speaking at the annual NSU/Independence Bowl Kickoff Luncheon. Burke is the longest serving AD at any Louisiana institution. He has steered NSU athletics to many of its greatest accomplishments while overseeing a program that has fielded championship caliber teams in nearly all of the school’s NCAA Division I sports. Two years ago, he was included among 29 winners of the Under Amour AD of the Year Award presented by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA). He was also among four winners chosen to be involved in a Street and Smith’s SportsBusiness Journal panel discussion on current Division I athletics issues. Joining NSU’s Burke were Purdue’s Morgan Burke (no relation), Samford’s Bob Roller and Lee Fowler of North Carolina State, with the transcript of their discussion distributed to national media by the Sports Business Daily. Burke just completed a term as the 2010-11 president of the Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association. Burke’s 16 years as athletic director include 32 Southland Conference regular-season or tournament championships, 54 All-American and Academic All-American student athletes, and three U.S. Olympic competitors. Seventeen NSU teams have taken part in NCAA or WNIT postseason competition. Under his guidance, Northwestern State has led all 13 public institutions in Louisiana, and all 12 Southland Conference institutions, in the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate and Graduation Success Rate reports. The school’s athletic facilities have undergone nearly $7 million in improvements in the past four years. NSU in 2004-05 became the first (and remains the only) Southland Conference member in the league’s five decades of history to sweep football, men’s basketball and baseball championships in the same athletic year. It’s been done only once in Southeastern Conference history, by Alabama in 1933-34, and only four times in Big Ten Conference history, the last time by Michigan State in 1979-80. Those accomplishments have come with one of the more modest athletic budgets in the state and conference. Burke’s management skill and fundraising ability have been pivotal. Burke generated a $2 million series of sponsorships for new scoreboards installed for 2008-09 at all NSU athletic venues and spearheaded the $700,000 Second Century Circle fencing project for athletic venues. Burke has displayed a remarkable ability to hire dynamic head coaches, including several whose success at Northwestern State has propelled them to national prominence in subsequent positions. From his first day on the job, Burke has stressed the importance of having a balanced athletic program. To that end, tremendous competitive strides have been made in women’s athletics under his guidance. The NSU soccer program was the first one in Louisiana ever to reach the NCAA Tournament and remains the only one with multiple appearances. Volleyball set attendance records and has made its best-ever showings in conference play in recent years. In softball, NSU posted the nation’s most improved win total in 2010 regular-season play under second-year coach Donald Pickett, and moved among league contenders in 2011. The Lady Demons joined Stanford as the only women’s tennis programs in the country in 2010 with only one regular-season loss, while sweeping Southland regular-season and tournament titles and making a first-ever NCAA Team Tournament appearance. While on-field success by Demon and Lady Demon teams has been a source of pride for NSU supporters, Burke is equally proud of the tone which has been set within the NSU athletic program as it relates to academic achievement and community service. The academic accomplishments are reflected annually in the NCAA’s APR and GSR studies. Community service by NSU student-athletes, coaches and staff more than doubled to over 5,000 hours in 2009-10 and remained at that level in 2010-11. Burke spearheaded the adoption of the slogan “Great Tradition, Brighter Future” for NSU Athletics, and the creation of NSU Athletics “Cornerstones” for student-athletes: “Academic Achievement, Personal Responsibility, Competitive Success … Every Minute, Every Hour, Every Day!” In 2005, Burke was one of three recipients of the All-America Football Foundation’s Gen. Robert R. Neyland Outstanding Athletic Director Award and that same year, was also tabbed as one of two Natchitoches Parish Cenla Newsmakers of 2005 by the Alexandria Town Talk newspaper’s editorial staff. He received the 2006 “Outstanding Alumni Award” from his alma mater, Marlington High School in Alliance, Ohio, recognizing his community service and professional achievements. Burke became one of only 21 alumni honored since the award was instituted in 1982. In June 2006, he was a featured speaker and panelist at the National Association of Collegiate Athletic Directors convention in New Orleans, addressing members of the College Athletic Business Managers of America and also participating in a panel discussion of “Fundraising from an Athletic Director’s Perspective” speaking to the National Association of Athletic Development Directors. Since 2007, Burke has been a member of the prestigious NCAA Championships/Sports Management Cabinet, a 49-person panel which makes recommendations to the NCAA Board of Directors on key issues facing Division I athletics. He previously served a four-year term on the NCAA Division I Football Issues Committee (1999-2002) and concurrently served a term on the eight-member NCAA FCS Committee that administers the national playoffs. Since his committee term expired, Burke has served as a site supervisor for Football Championship Subdivision playoff games across the nation and he is regarded as one of the country’s premiere advocates of FCS football. In 2004 and 2011, NSU received the highest possible rating, “fully certified,” from the National Collegiate Athletic Association, affirming that Northwestern operates its athletic program in substantial conformity with operating principles adopted by the NCAA Division I membership. Burke is a past president of the Natchitoches Kiwanis Club and remains active in that civic group. He has also been part of the steering committee for the Natchitoches Christmas Festival and is a former president of the Natchitoches Area Jaycees. He is involved with the American Heart Association and was 2010 March of Dimes chairman locally. He and his wife, Susu, is a Natchitoches native, NSU graduate and an elementary teacher. Their 19-year-old daughter, Catherine, graduated from St. Mary’s High School in May of 2012 and is attending Louisiana Tech.

In an era of considerable change in intercollegiate athletics, the Southland Conference continues to be a model of innovation, stability and consistent achievement as it celebrates the academic and athletic accomplishments of its member institutions. What began as a small gathering of college administrators nearly 50 years ago, the Southland Conference has transformed itself into a dynamic and respected consortium of 11 member universities in four states. Beginning with a historic meeting of five institutions in Dallas on March 15, 1963, that included current member Lamar University (then Lamar State College of Technology), the Southland Conference set on an extraordinary course that has proven successful well into its fifth decade of existence. The successful transformation continues. On Oct. 11, 2011, the Southland Conference announced the addition of Oral Roberts University, effective for the 2012-13 academic year, marking the league’s first entry into the state of Oklahoma and the Tulsa metropolitan area. Shortly thereafter, on Nov. 21, the Southland announced the addition of Houston Baptist University for the 2013-14 academic year, giving the league an 11th member and its first institution in the region’s largest city, home to significant student-recruitment and alumni bases. The league will add Abilene Christian, University of New Orleans and Incarnate Word to the schedule beginning in 2014. The cities of the Southland are diverse and progressive, ranging from international business and cultural centers such as Houston, New Orleans, Tulsa and Little Rock, to the historical cities of Nacogdoches, Texas, and Natchitoches, La., to the home of the modern oil boom, Beaumont, Texas, to the unique Cajun French cultures found in the Louisiana cities of Thibodaux and Lake Charles. Southland Conference institutions also draw large numbers of students from the metropolitan areas of Dallas-Fort Worth, San Antonio, Baton Rouge, Austin, and Shreveport.

Former Lady Demon named to Graduate N Club Hall of Fame Former Lady Demon softball sensa-

tion, Nancy Percle (Ensminger), was inducted into the Graduate N Club Hall of Fame in October 2012 as part of the annual Homecoming event. She was a standout pitcher for the Lady Demons. The Graduate N Club Hall of Fame is the highest athletic honor Northwestern State presents for athletic accomplishment, with induction ceremonies each year at homecoming. The Graduate N Club is the association of former athletic letterwinners at NSU. Percle is one of only five former Lady Demon softball players to be inducted including Rhonda Rube Baird, Ginger Craig, Sonja “Betty Sue” Olsen-Gonzales and Kellie Shotwell. Percle, a Baton Rouge-Tara product, still holds the Lady Demon softball career records for shutouts (26) and earned run average record with a remarkable 1.04 from 1990-92. The right-hander ranks third in career wins (51) and second in winning percentage (.708, 51-21), records she owned at the end of her three seasons at NSU. She was the 1990 Southland Conference Newcomer of the Year, a first-team All-SLC selection and a second-team All-Louisiana pick. She shares the single-season wins record (going an amazing 21-3 in 1990) and had 20 in 1991, including a school record that still stands with 12 when she helped NSU to a 44-18-1 record and the Southland Conference championship, earning first-team All-Louisiana and second-team All-Southland honors. She also held the season mark with 12 shutouts in 1991 and 73 strikeouts (1990). While playing for coach Rickey McCalister, Percle helped NSU to records of 43-17 (1990) and 37-21-1 (1992) as NSU won 69 percent of its games in three seasons. Percle is the aunt of current Lady Demon softball player Kaylee Guidry.
