Former Tiger Brad Benjamin (2005-09) laid claim to the 2009 USGA Public Links Championship over the summer. With the victory, Benjamin joins Hillman Robbins and Lou Graham as the Brad Benjamin only Tiger alumni to have won a USGA Championship. Robbins claimed the 1954 United State Amateur Championship and Graham won the 1975 United States Open. Benjamin also earned the opportunity to compete in the 2010 Masters. Memphis golf celebrates the opening of the Frank L. Flautt Golf Center, a state of the art on campus practice facility.

One of the Nation’s Best The Frank L. Flautt Center officially opened on September 3, 2009. Located next to the Tiger Softball Complex on the University of Memphis’ Park Avenue Campus, the $1.5 million center provides both the Tiger and Lady Tiger golf teams with state-ofthe-art facilities. The center contains a 7,200 square foot indoor practice facility complete with indoor hitting bays, study areas, lounge areas, and a video analysis room. In addition to the indoor facilities, the center also has approximately five acres of outdoor driving ranges and short game practice areas. “Wow. All I can say is what a great day this is for our golf program. Words just cannot express how grateful we are and how much you have done for us, Frank and Brenda Flautt...This is just an amazing facility. It’s gone way above what my expectations were. This has been a vision of mine since I arrived here six years ago. I never thought we would have anything this great. It is, by far, the best in the country. And, we are definitely going to work hard to make you proud. Thank you so much for this.” - Coach Grant Robbins

Coach Grant Robbins

N

Robbins, a 1994 graduate of Memphis where he was a three-time all-conference selection, returned to his alma mater as head coach in June of 2003. Robbins replaced his former coach Jim Cook, who unexpectedly passed away in November of 2002. Robbins, the 2008 Conference USA Coach of the Year, has guided the Tigers to seven tournament titles and 23 top-five finishes and has had eight different players win a total of twelve tournaments in his five years at the helm. Robbins also led the Tigers to their first postseason berth in more than 20 years when they qualified for the NCAA East Regional last year. After losing three seniors off the 2007-08 squad that earned an NCAA Regional berth, Robbins led a talented, but inexperienced squad to five top-10’s and two top5’s in 2008-09. Seniors Brad Benjamin and Jordan Payne anchored the squad, each making the Conference USA All-Tournament team. The Tigers posted a low finish of second at the Memphis Intercollegiate, where they fell just short of Ohio State in the rain shortened event. Memphis struggled early in the spring before coming on strong at the Conference USA Championship. Led by ninth and 11th place finishes by Brad Benjamin and Jordan Payne, the Tigers finished fourth in the event and posted their lowest tournament team total of the season. In 2007-08, Robbins was named the Conference USA Coach of the Year after leading the Tigers to seven top-five finishes, including one victory at the Charleston Southern University Spring Kick Off. The Tigers, who finished in the top 10 in all but two events, played their best golf toward the end of the season posting wins over nationally-ranked Florida State, Clemson, Wake Forest and Texas Tech and earned a bid to the NCAA East Regional. It was the first postseason appearance by Memphis in more than 20 years. Former Tiger Ian Rochester was named All-Conference USA after turning in four top-five finishes, including medalist honors at the CSU Spring Kick-Off. Robbie Greenwell was also named to the All- Conference USA team after a strong season that included a win at the Linger Longer Invitational. Robbins led the University of Memphis to a third-place finish in the Conference USA Tournament. During the 2006-07 season, Robbins directed the Tigers to seven top-10 finishes, and three top-five showings. Kyle Peterman earned medalist honors in the Mason Rudolph Invitational. Ian Rochester finished sixth at the Conference USA tournament to help the Tigers to a seventh place finish. Rochester also closed out the season on a strong note by finishing second at the Linger Longer Invitational. In 2005-06, Robbins and the Tigers turned in five top-five finishes, including three top-three finishes and a title at the 2005 Memphis Intercollegiate. Memphis cracked the top 10 in 12 events, and former Tiger Keven Fortin-Simard earned medalist honors three times and was named the Conference USA Player of the Year. Robbins also led the U of M to a fourth place showing at the Conference USA Tournament, where Brad Benjamin finished third to help Memphis to the school’s best conference finish since 1999. During the 2004-05 campaign, Robbins led the Tigers to three tournament victories, which is the most first-place finishes in a single year in school history. Under Robbins, four Memphis golfers earned medalist honors, the team finished in

University of memphis

the top two in five of the 10 events and Fortin-Simard was named All-Conference USA. In the 2003-04 season, Robbins led Memphis to four top five finishes in its 10 tournaments, including a first-place finish (out of 15 teams) at the Matlock Collegiate Classic in Lakeland, Fla. He also led Memphis to third, fourth and fifth place finishes in three separate tournaments, and the Tigers won a dual match against Mississippi State on the Bulldogs’ home course. Memphis individuals had seven top five finishes in 11 tournaments, and both David Jeans and Alan Weant were named All-Conference USA. Robbins spent four seasons at the helm of the UNC-Wilmington program before coming to Memphis. His teams won 11 tournament titles in his time on the Atlantic coast, including four events during the 2002-03 season, his final campaign with the Seahawks. The Seahawks placed in the top three in 28 events under Robbins as he led UNCW to its first-ever NCAA Tournament bid in 2003. Robbins was named the 2001 Colonial Athletic Association Coach of the Year in just his second year at UNCW. During his time at Wilmington, he coached one CAA Player of the Year, two CAA Rookies of the Year and 13 All-CAA players. Seven different golfers were individual medalists in 10 tournaments during Robbins’ four-year tenure. Before taking the post at UNCW, Robbins coached for two years as an assistant at Penn State University. While there, he helped the Nittany Lions advance to a pair of NCAA East Regionals in 1998 and 1999. Robbins assisted in all facets of the Penn State program and served as the recruiting coordinator. He was also the tournament director of the Rutherford Intercollegiate and was an instructor for the Penn State Golf Camps. Robbins gained valuable experience playing on three different professional golf tours following his graduation from Memphis. Robbins put in time on the North Florida PGA Winter Tour (1994-95), the Tommy Armour Professional Golf Tour (1994-95) and the Tour America Mid-South Professional Golf Tour (1995). A Memphis native, Robbins was a four-year letterman on the Tiger golf team from 1990-94, and also served as a team captain his junior and senior seasons. He was an All-Great Midwest Conference team selection three times and was also a recipient of the Jake Fondren Golf Scholarship. During his senior season at the 1994 Vanderbilt/Music City Intercollegiate, Robbins tied for what was then the second-lowest single round in school history when he shot a 6-under-par 66, two strokes shy of the school record. Robbins earned his bachelor’s degree in marketing in 1994 from the University of Memphis and returned to the U of M after his playing career where he earned his master’s degree in sports management in 1997. Robbins entered the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) in August of 2007 and is currently working toward Class A membership. Robbins passed the PGA’s Playing Ability Test at Temple Hills Golf Club in Nashville, carding the lowest score by 10 shots with rounds of 68-72. He is currently an instructor at the Jerry Haas Golf Camp at Wake Forest University, and has also served as an instructor at the Duke University Golf School, the Pine Needles Youth Golfari in Southern Pines, North Carolina, the Penn State Nittany Lion Golf Camp and the Fighting Scot Golf Camp in Wooster, Ohio. Robbins and his wife, Brooke, currently reside in Cordova, Tenn.

2008-09 On the right track The U of M welcomed five newcomers in 2008-09, after losing three seniors off the previous year’s NCAA tournament team. Freshman Jack Belote made an immediate impact, finishing in the top-20 in his first ever collegiate tournament and earning C-USA golfer of the Week. Senior Jordan Payne also had his best fall as a Tiger, posting two top-10 finishes, including a tie for fifth at the Memphis Intercollegiate. The Tigers finished in the top-10 in three of their four tournaments, including a second place finish at the Memphis Intercollegiate. After a rough start in the spring, the Tigers responded in the FAU Spring Break Championship. Payne fired a three day total of 212 to lead Memphis to a seventh place finish. The Tigers also posted a top10 finish at the River Landing Intercollegiate before heading to the C-USA Men’s Golf Championship. In the conference tournament, Brad Benjamin led the Tigers, finishing tied for ninth with scores of 72-69-73 and leading Memphis to a fourth place team finish.

Cook had coached the Tiger golf team for 31 and a half years. He was replaced by Bob Winn for the spring of 2003. • Former Tiger golfer Grant Robbins was hired as the new head golf coach and began his duties in the fall of 2003. Robbins, a threetime All-Great Midwest conference selection at Memphis, had served as the head golf coach at UNC-Wilmington for four years and had built the Seahawk program into a national contender. • In the beginning of just his second year as head coach, Robbins led the Tigers to three tournament wins during the fall of 2004, as Memphis rallied from behind in all three wins. It is the first time in school history that the Tigers won as many as three tournaments in a sea-

son. In all three wins, Memphis also had the individual medalist, as three different Tigers won individual titles in the three wins. • Keven Fortin-Simard won his second individual title in 2005, medalling at the Memphis Intercollegiate. The Tigers won the event for the second-straight year and earned championship honors for the fourth time in two years. Fortin-Simard went on to have a successful campaign in the spring of 2006, picking up two more wins and three more top-10 finishes. Brad Benjamin finished third at the Conference USA Tournament and helped Memphis to a fourth place finish, the best conference finish by a Tiger golf squad since 1999. • The Tigers welcomed five freshmen and two transfers to campus in 2006-07 and 10 golfers saw action in the Memphis lineup. Ian Rochester started off his junior campaign right with three top-20 finishes in the fall season. Brad Benjamin and Lewis Clarke made one top-10 appearance each and Kyle Peterman picked up co-medalist honors at the Mason Rudolph Intercollegiate, his first collegiate tournament. In the spring Ian Rochester recorded two second-place finishes and a sixth-place finish at the conference tournament. Brad Benjamin earned medalist honors at the Palisades Collegiate Classic. • The Tigers got off to a hot start in 2007-2008 finishing in the Top-10 in each of their four fall events. Seniors Ian Rochester and Robbie Greenwell picked up two top-10 finishes apiece and sophomore Brandon Bunn tied for fifth at the Memphis Intercollegiate. The Tigers ended the year with their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1988, earning an at-large bid in the NCAA East Regional after finishing third in the C-USA Championship. Head coach Grant Robbins was named the 2008 C-USA Coach of the Year. • The U of M welcomed five newcomers in 200809, after losing three seniors off last year’s NCAA tournament team. Freshman Jack Belote made an immediate impact, finishing in the top-20 in his first ever collegiate tournament and earning C-USA golfer of the week. Senior Jordan Payne also had his best fall as a Tiger, posting two top-10 finishes, including a tie for fifth at the Memphis Intercollegiate. The Tigers finished in the top-10 in three of their four tournaments, including a second place finish at the Memphis Intercollegiate. After a rough start in the Spring, the Tigers responded in the FAU Spring Break Championship. Jordan Payne fired a three day total of 212 to lead Memphis to a seventh place finish. The Tigers would also post one more top-10 finish at the River Landing Intercollegiate before heading to the C-USA Men’s Golf Championship. In the conference tournament, Brad Benjamin led the Tigers, finishing tied for ninth with scores of 7269-73 and leading Memphis to a fourth place team finish. • Memphis welcomed in four newcomers in the fall of 2009, including transfer Jonathan Fly. A native of Memphis, Fly transferred back home after spending two seasons at Auburn. He led the Tigers this fall, posting two top-10 finishes. Redshirt freshman Carlson Cox also made a big impact this fall, holding the lowest scoring average on the team at 73.2 The Tigers posted a low team finish of second at the Sam Hall Intercollegiate with scores of 277-285-284.

In its second year under Coach Beth Harrelson, the University of Memphis women’s golf program continues to grow and improve. After leading the team to four top-ten finishes in 2008-09, Harrelson has already led this year’s squad to an impressive three top-10’s, including a victory at the 2009 UAB Fall Beach Blast. With the opening of the Frank L. Flautt Center and the talented group of newcomers, Harrelson looks to lead the Lady Tigers back to the NCAA Regionals for the first time since 2007.

Leslie Grabeman

After taking over as the head coach, Beth Harrelson promised to return the program to its former heights. She took a big step in that direction with the signing of the freshman class consisting of Sarah Mathews, Julia Hodgson, and Alex Aläng.

Now in her second full year at Memphis after transferring, Leslie Grabeman is the only senior on this year’s squad. Since coming to Memphis, Grabeman has competed in every event for the Lady Tigers, posting five top-10 finishes. This fall, Grabeman posted two top-10 finishes, including her career low finish at the Lady Red Wolf Classic. Her rounds of 78-74 earned her not only a tie for fourth, but also Conference USA Female Golfer of the Week accolades. She then posted rounds of 81-75 to finish T20 at the CSU Wendy’s Invitational, her third consecutive top-20 finish. That performance also led Memphis to a third place team finish, the lowest under second year head coach Beth Harrelson. Grabeman then fired rounds of 76-72 to finish fifth in the final event of the fall, the UAB Fall Beach Bash. That showing helped lead the Lady Tigers to rounds of 300-295 and claim their first team title under Harrelson and the first since the 2007 Conference USA Championship. The fifth-place finish also marked Grabeman’s fourth consecutive top-20 finish. “Leslie had a fantastic fall this year. I think that once she played well at Cincinnati, she really kind of got going. Overall, she has done well to set an example for the younger players of the level of play we expect here.”

Aläng was the 85th ranked junior girl in Sweden. She played tournaments on the Skandia Junior Tour, where she finished in the top10 five times, with a low finish of second. After adjusting to American golf courses, Aläng has been a regular contributor. She posted rounds of 76-74 to lead the Lady Tigers and finish eighth at the CSU Wendy’s Invitational. She also posted scores of 79-73 to help Memphis win the UAB Fall Beach Blast.

A highly touted prospect out of Canada, Hodgson was the captain of her high school golf team for three years. She was also a member of the 2007 CJGA (Canadian Junior Golf Association) Stephen Ames Canada Ryder Cup team that went 3-0. This season, Hodgson competed in two events for the Lady Tigers, with a low finish of 33rd at the Cincinnati Fall Classic. She also fired rounds of 86-79 to lead Memphis to a third place finish at the CSU Wendy’s Invitational.

Mathews was a household name in area prep golf before signing with the U of M. She was a finalist for the Commercial Appeal’s “Best of the Preps” four years in a row (2005-2008), as well as the 2007 Commercial Appeal Female Golfer of the Year. This fall, Mathews competed in three events for Memphis, with a low finish of T2 at the UAB Fall Beach Bash. Her rounds of 74-73 in that event led the Lady Tigers to their first team title since the 2007 C-USA Championship.

“Julia has worked very hard this fall, and we are now seeing some of the hard work pay off. I am sure she’ll continue to practice in the offseason and get ready for the spring.” -Coach Beth Harrel-

“I’ve known Sarah for several years and she continues to impress me. She worked very hard this fall, and it really showed (at the UAB Fall Beach Blasrt).”

“It took Alex a little while to get used to everything here, but she has played wonderfully since she has. I’m very proud of her.”

McDonald was a familiar name in Memphis prep golf from her playing days at Immaculate Conception High School. While there, she was named “Best of the Preps” by the Commercial Appeal in 2007. Since transferring to the University of Memphis after one year at Christian Brothers University, McDonald has made an immediate impact on Lady Tiger golf. Last season, she competed in all but one event for the Lady Tigers, posting a low finish of 47th at the 2009 Conference USA Championship. McDonald competed in one event this fall for the Lady Tigers as an individual, shooting rounds of 96-101 at the Lady Red Wolf Classic to finish 71st.

Marissa Steen returns this season after leading the Lady Tigers in scoring and top-20 finishes in 2008-09. Steen continued her strong play this fall, posting three top-10 finishes. After struggling to a 52nd place finish in the season opening Lady Paladin Invitational, Steen reeled off three straight top-10’s at the Cincinnati Fall invitational, Lady Red Wolf Classic, and the CSU Wendy’s Invitational. Her rounds of 78-77 at the UAB Fall Beach Blast helped lead the Lady Tigers to their first team victory under Coach Harrelson and the first for the program since the 2007 Conference USA Championship. Steen held a scoring average of 77.9, with a low round of 75 at the Cincinnati Fall Invitational.

After competing in all eight events in 2008-09, Kathleen Glavin returns as one of the most experienced players on the Lady Tiger roster. Glavin opened the season at the Lady Paladin Invitational, where she posted rounds of 81-80 to finish T52 in the rain shortened event. She finished T49 at the Lady Red Wolf Classic with rounds of 80-87. Though she was forced to miss the CSU Wendy’s Invitational due to a back injury, Glavin took advantage of the time off to get ready for the UAB Fall Beach Bash. At that event, Glavin posted an opening round 72 to grab a share of the individual lead. Her second round 78 left her in eighth place, the lowest finish of her career. Her performance also led Memphis to its first ever victory under Coach Harrelson.

“Caitlin continues to work hard on her game and improve. She’s going to be one of the leaders on the team next year, and I know she’s ready.”

- Coach Beth Harrelson

“Marissa has been a very consistent performer for us this fall. She always competes at the highest level, and I expect her to continue to improve throughout her time here.”

Coach Beth Harrelson

I

n her second season as the head coach of the University of Memphis women’s golf team, Beth Harrelson continues to build the program into a national force. Prior to being named head coach of the Lady Tigers, Harrelson was an instructor at Memphis National Golf Club, as well as the head coach of St. Mary’s High School.

University of memphis

In 1987, the talented player won the Memphis area Women’s Golf Association Tournament and the Double Eagle Golf Tournament. She was also the medalist in the 1988 Tennessee State Tournament. She returned to Memphis permanently in 1990 and accepted a full-time position as the assistant pro at Stonebridge Golf Club. She became the golf instructor at Stonebridge in 1991 and held that position until 1998 when she moved to Quail Ridge Golf Club in Bartlett as the golf instructor. While working at Stonebridge Golf Club, she earned her PGA Class A membership into the Professional Golfers Association in 1995. Harrelson was inducted into the M Club Hall of Fame in 1999. Later she was inducted into the Briarcrest High School Sports Hall of Fame in 2006. She and her husband, Tim, have three children; daughter Megan, who is a junior at the U of M;daughter Grace, who is a student at Briarcrest; and son, Jon. Page 45

This fall, Harrelson welcomed three newcomers after losing just one returnee. After struggling to a 14th place finish in the season opening Lady Paladin Invitational, Harrelson has led the Lady Tigers to three top-5 finishes. After posting back to back third place finishes at the Lady Red Wolf Classic and the CSU Wendy’s Invitational, Memphis finally broke through to win the UAB Fall Beach Blast. Led by freshman Sarah Mathews’ rounds of 74-73, the Lady Tigers posted team totals of 300-295 (the lowest two team scores under Harrelson) to capture the first victory under Harrelson and the first for the program since 2007. After taking over a program that only had four returning scholarship players in August of 2008, Harrelson led the 2008-09 Lady Tigers to four top-10 team finishes. Harrelson worked on laying the solid foundation for future success of the women’s golf program. A graduate of Briarcrest High School, the former Beth Walthal signed a volleyball scholarship with the University of Alabama before declining the offer and choosing to attend the U of M. She arrived on campus in 1982 and played for Coach Diane Hale during the fall season. After redshirting for a year, she made the transition to golf in 1984 and received the team’s Most Improved Player award following the 1984-85 season. As a senior, Harrelson was selected as captain of her team and posted the team’s lowest scoring average. After graduating with a journalism degree, Harrelson participated on the Futures Tour for two years before moving to Scottsdale, Ariz., to work as an assistant professional at the TPC of Scottsdale during the winter and at Stonebridge Golf Club during the remainder of the year.

2008-09 a new era begins When Beth Harrelson took over a depleted Lady Tiger golf program in August of 2008, everyone knew the team would have to go through some growing pains. In her first season as a college golf coach, Harrelson guided the Lady Tigers to five top10 finishes in only eight tournaments, including a low finish of seventh at the Ross Resorts Invitational.

Larson’s Career comes to a close Rachel Larson, a four-year letter winner for the Lady Tiger golf program, wrapped up her Memphis career in 200809. Larson competed in seven events, posting three top-10 finishes and holding the team’s second lowest scoring average of 79.2. In her four years at Memphis, Larson competed in 36 tournaments, posting 15 top-20 finishes and holding a career scoring average of 79.2.

posting a team-high three top-20 finishes. McDonald, who transferred to the University of Memphis after redshirting her freshman season at Christian Brothers University, competed in all but one event for the Lady Tigers. Her low finish (47th) came at the 2009 Conference USA Women’s Golf Championship.

Women’s Golf History • The University of Memphis women’s golf program began in 1977 under current Associate Athletic Director Lynn Parkes. With a handful of tryouts, Parkes started a program that today is one of the most respected women’s golf programs in the country. That first Lady Tiger team consisted of Theresa Simi, Gloria Carkeet, Cindy Gabel, Kathy Whitetree, C.C. Chamberlain and Sydney Forrester. • In the second season, Parkes awarded three scholarships and that number increased to 10 scholarship players in 1979-80. The first scholarship Lady Tiger golfers included Monice Madden, Jackie Worley and Elaine Heroux, a junior college transfer. • The 1978-79 team participated in eight events and placed in the top 10 in four of the eight tournaments. The team won the TCWSE (Tennessee College Women’s State Finals) in 1979. Mary Ann Bailey had a season low round of 78, and she also qualified for the USGA Women’s Amateur. Karen Young was signed in 1978-79 and became an impact player for the Lady Tigers. The team captured their first team championship in the TCWSF Tournament. • In 1979-80, Maureen Danehy and Susan Hundley became Lady Tigers. Hundley had just won the Indiana Long Driving competition prior to signing with the University of Memphis.

1980-89 • By 1982-83, Kathy Vendetti was added to the already strong Lady Tiger golf team. She immediately made a name for herself and before she graduated, set virtually every U of M golf record. The Lady Tiger team placed in the top 10 in all four spring tournaments in 1983. They were fifth in the Troy State tournament for their best finish of the spring. Vendetti had a 78.8 stroke average and posted a low round of 74 in the Carrier/Memphis State Women’s Tournament. In her 26 rounds that year, 16 were in the 70s. • Sally Andrews, a well-known local golfer, joined Memphis as assistant golf coach in 1983-84 and helped Parkes mold an even stronger team. Vendetti led the Lady Tigers, placing third at the Alabama Intercollegiate. She was joined by Renee Schafer and together they fired more rounds in the 70s. Vendetti had a season low round of 72 at the Furman Intercollegiate and a 75 at the Lady

Andrews inherited a team made up of Angie Barker, Cynthia Brooks, and Folsom, and added the first international players to the team in Beatriz Cowman of Chile and Heather Lee from Canada. She also inked Gia Kronske of Clearwater, Florida. • In 1987-88 Parkes’ sister, Christi Parkes, was joining forces with Cowman, Lee and Kronske to post impressive scores. Parkes had a 75 in the Metro Conference Tournament. Cowman, a native of Santiago, Chile, had a 76 at the Southern Intercollegiate, while Kronske finished 16th at the Hudson Invitational with a low round of 75.

The squad won the UAB Lady Blazer Tournament in the spring of 1988, the team’s first NCAA sanctioned tournament title. • Cynthia Brooks was named the Most Improved Player for the Lady Tigers in 1988-89. Cowman continued her assault on par, firing a 74 at UAB’s Lady Blazer Tournament. Kronske was seventh in the Metro Conference and sixth at the TigerTide. She received All-Metro Conference honors and finished the season with a 79.4 stroke average. Lee had rounds of 73-74 at the True Temper/Memphis Women’s Open and led the team in stroke average with a 78.7 average per round. • The Lady Tigers placed second in the UAB Lady Blazer Tournament in 1989-90 with Cowman, Kronske and Lee leading the team. Cowman had a 74.2 stroke average in the fall and placed fifth in the Kentucky Lady Kat Invitational. Both Kronske and Lee carried stroke averages in the 70s.

1990-99 • Lori Brock came on board as the Lady Tiger head coach in 1991-92 and under her tutelage, captured just the second official tournament championship in the history of the program. The Lady Tigers won the Nebraska Women’s Intercollegiate. The golf team also placed second in the Peggy Kirk Bell hosted by Rollins College and were fourth in the prestigious Tiger-Tide and South Alabama Intercollegiate. • In 1993-94, the Lady Tiger golf team grabbed the spotlight with its outstanding play. Led by Allison Bell and Kim Hunt, the Lady Tigers captured the first Great Midwest Conference women’s golf championship. Bell was the medalist and Hunt placed second, and head coach Lori Brock was named Coach of the Year. Alissa Lauder was the medalist in the NTU/SMU Invitational Tournament and qualified for the NCAA Golf Championships, where she placed 27th in a field of 102 golfers. • The 1994-95 Lady Tiger golf team again swept through the Great Midwest Conference tournament, held at Farmington Country Club in Memphis, winning by 47 strokes over its next closest opponent. Junior Melissa Isham claimed medalist honors with teammates Marie-Louise Hviid and Allison Bell tying for second.

Memphis won the rain-shortened Lady Panther Invitational, while Melissa Isham fired a 69 to earn individual medalist honors. Through the course of the 1995-96 season, the Lady Tigers wrapped up five top-five finishes and earned a spot in the NCAA Regionals for the first time in school history. Freshman Naima Ghilain was named Conference USA Freshman of the Year. • The Lady Tiger golf team had the finest season in school history in 1996-97. Led by newcomer Amanda Moltke-Leth, the Lady Tigers won the Memphis Women’s Intercollegiate to open the season. They closed the fall season by winning the Lady Panther Golf Classic in Atlanta and then ended the spring schedule with their third tournament victory, this time in the Conference USA Championship. Moltke-Leth took medalist honors in the Memphis Women’s Intercollegiate, the Lady Panther Golf Classic, and the Duke Spring Invitational en route to being named the Conference USA Freshman of the Year. Debby King won Coach of the Year honors and all five Tiger teammates - Kim Hunt, Amanda Moltke-Leth, Naima Ghilain, Meredith Thomas and Valerie Luehrs - were named to the All-Conference USA Team. The Lady Tigers received their bid to the NCAA Regional Championships and placed eighth. • The 1997-98 Lady Tiger golf team continued with their nationally ranked play, as the team received their third-consecutive bid to the NCAA Championships. The Lady Tigers had seven top-10 tournament finishes in nine tournament starts and placed 10th in the NCAA East Regional in Durham, North Carolina. Amanda Moltke-Leth and Naima Ghilain were both named to the All-Conference USA team. • The 1998-99 Lady Tiger golf team made it four in a row when the team received another bid to the NCAA Regionals.

Naima Ghilain ended her career with Memphis by placing fifth in the Conference USA Championships and again being named to the All-Conference team, an honor she received all four years at the U of M. • The 1999-2000 Lady Tiger golf team spent the fall introducing a number of young players to the game of college golf. Senior Valerie Luehrs led the squad with a second-place finish in the Memphis Women’s Intercollegiate. The highlight of the fall for the Lady Tigers was a trip to Hawaii to participate in the Rainbow Wahine Fall Golf Classic. The team travelled to the islands and spent an enjoyable week playing in this prestigious college event. The trip marked the first time in the history of the program that a Lady Tiger golf team had travelled outside the continent for play.

2000-Present • The 2000-01 Lady Tiger golf team enjoyed another outstanding season. With a youthful squad, the Lady Tigers won the Conference USA Championship and received their fifth bid in six seasons to the NCAA Regional. Tiger freshman Meaghan Francella won the C-USA individual title and was named the Freshman of the Year. She was also named to the All-Conference and All-Tournament squads. Marianne Ruud was named All-Conference and All-Tournament, while Jennifer Jaszek earned All-Tournament honors. • The 2001-2002 season opened with former head coach Debby King leaving the U of M to start a program at Notre Dame. Katie Rump, an outstanding collegiate and amateur player from the Memphis area, was named as the interim head coach and led her team to a tournament victory in its first start of the season. The Lady Tigers went on to win the Edwin Watts/Carolina’s Classic, where junior Marianne Ruud also captured the medalist honors for her first collegiate tournament victory. The Lady Tigers received their sixth invitation to the NCAA Tournament and participated in the East Regional in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Sophomore Meaghan Francella received an individual invitation to the

NCAA Championships. • The 2002-03 season became another of change for the Memphis women’s golf team. Sheryl Maize, the head coach at Augsburg College in Minnesota and a noted teacher of the game, was hired as the permanent head coach replacing Katie Rump, who served as the interim coach for one year. Maize immediately won her first tournament, The Memphis Women’s Intercollegiate, and led the squad to three top-five finishes in the fall of 2002. The Tigers were third at the Louisville Lady Cardinal Cup and fourth at the Beacon Woods Invitational. • Due to circumstances beyond their control, members of the Lady Tiger golf team and their head coach faced yet another change for the 2003-04 season. Maize returned to the state of Florida after an extended family illness and was granted a year’s leave of absence to take care of family matters. Former NCAA official and South Carolina women’s golf coach Donna Noonan took over the team on an interim basis and coached the Lady Tigers. • For the fourth-straight year, the Lady Tigers brought in a new coach. Jenny Bruun replaced interim coach Donna Noonan for the 2004-05 season. Bruun came to Memphis after two years as the assistant coach for both the men’s and women’s golf teams at Campbell University. A first-year head coach, Bruun inherited a young team with only one junior along with six sophomores and one freshman. • Sophomore Stacey Tate led the Lady Tigers in the 2004-05 season with the program’s first individual title since 2002. Tate earned medalist honors at the Lady Eagle Classic and was selected the CUSA Player of the Week. • Tate’s three first-place finishes were only some of the highlights of the 2005-06 campaign. Tate went on to set new school records for 18, 36, and 54 holes as well as posting a stroke average of 74.1, beating the previous school record by 1.7 strokes. As a team, the Lady Tigers roared to victory at the Lady Eagle Invitational, their first tournament victory since the 2002 Memphis Women’s Intercollegiate. • Memphis started off the 2006-07 season strong. After starting the year by finishing sixth at the Badger Women’s Golf Invitational, the Lady Tigers

Page 64

During the short 29-year history of the University of Memphis Lady Tiger golf program, there have been numerous outstanding players and several have been inducted into the M Club Hall of Fame. Kathy Vendetti, who played from 1980 through 1983, was the first Lady Tiger golfer to be installed in the Hall of Fame. Vendetti was inducted during ceremonies in 1994. Beth Walthal-Harrelson was voted into the prestigious Hall in 1999. Walthal-Harrelson was a stellar performer for the U of M from 1983 through 1987 and is making her coaching debut with the Lady Tigers this season. The latest inductee into the Hall of Fame was Kim Hunt-McNeil, who was a member of the Hall of Fame class of 2001. Hunt-McNeil, who is married to former Tiger golfer Sam McNeil, played for the Lady Tigers from 1993 through 1997. She was an All-Conference USA selection in 1996 and won the Conference USA medalist title in 1997. Hunt-McNeil also helped the Lady Tigers to the team championship in ‘97.

never finished lower than fifth the rest of the fall. A win at the Wildcat Fall Invitational followed by back-to-back runner-up finishes at the Lady Paladin and Lady Jaguar Invitationals gave Memphis three consecutive top three finishes. The Lady Tigers climbed as high as No. 38 in the nation in the Golfstat fall polls and Stacey Tate was named one of GolfWorld Magazine’s Top 50 Female Players to Watch. The Lady Tigers capped off a successful spring by winning the conference championship earning a trip to the NCAA West Regional in Utah. Senior Stacey Tate finished second at the conference tournament and was named first-team all-conference. Junior Dawn-Marie Conaty and Rachel Larson were named third-team all-conference. • After consecutive 11th place finishes to begin the 2007-2008 campaign, the Lady Tigers placed 5th at the Johnie Imes Invitational led by freshman Alexa Porter’s eighth-place finish. Junior Rachel Larson finished 12th at the Pat Bradley Championship and Porter placed 15th. Larson earned her second-consecutive All-Conference USA Third Team honor and Porter was named to the C-USA All-Tournament team after tying for second in the C-USA Championship. • Under first year head coach Beth Harrelson, the Lady Tigers entered the 2008-09 campaign with three newcomers and only five players on the roster. The young group continued to improve throughout the fall, closing out the fall with two consecutive top-10 finishes at the Lady Red Wolves Classic and the Ross Resort Invitational. Senior Rachel Larson and freshman Marissa Steen both notched two top-20 finishes in each of those events, including a fourth place showing by Steen at the Lady Red Wolf Classic. In the Spring, the team competed in four events, posting two top-10 finishes, including an eighth place finish at the Conference USA Championship. • After struggling to a 14th place finish at the season opening Lady Paladin Invitational, the Lady Tigers rebounded with four consecutive top-10 finishes to close out the fall. Led by Leslie Grabeman’s performance that would garner C-USA Golfer of the Week accolades, Memphis finished T3 in the Lady Red Wolf Classic. In the next week, the Lady Tigers posted their second consecutive third place finish after being led by rounds of 76-74 from freshman Alex Aläng. In the final event of the season, Sarah Mathews posted rounds of 74-73 to tie for second individually and lead Memphis to a title at the UAB Fall Beach Blast. The victory was the first under second year head coach Beth Harrelson and the first for the program since the 2007 Conference USA Championship.

NCaa Women’s Golf Championship History


Conference USa: Competition Lives Here Marking its 15-year milestone during the 2009-10 season, Conference USA is still going strong. From the beginning, dedication to excellence has been the league’s guiding principle and remains today a common thread for a promising future. C-USA is home to 12 nationally prominent, tradition-rich members in East Carolina, Houston, Marshall, Memphis, Rice, SMU, Southern Miss, Tulane, Tulsa, UAB, UCF a n d U T E P. T h i s combination enBritton Banowsky hances men’s and Commissioner women’s programs that are immersed in athletic success and academic prowess. Together, we are committed to excellence, integrity and leadership in athletics, academics and in our communities. All C-USA institutions sponsor Division I-A football, along with several other men’s and women’s athletic programs, many of which compete regularly for NCAA Championships. C-USA sponsors competition in 19 sports — nine for men (baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, soccer, tennis and indoor and outdoor track and field) and 10 for women (basketball, cross country, golf, softball, soccer, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field and volleyball). The league sponsors numerous academic awards, including the Commissioner’s Honor Roll and the Commissioner’s Academic Medal, indicative of outstanding achievement in the classroom. C-USA annually awards 12 postgraduate scholarships, along with the Sport Academic Award, Scholar Athletes of the Year and the Institutional Academic Excellence Award. Conference USA also added a Spirit of Service Award, recognizing student-athletes three times a year for a combination of significant community service efforts, good academic standing and participation in their elected sport.

Success On The Playing Field Conference USA performers have achieved great success in competition, placing the league among the top conferences in the nation.

C-USA has sent three men’s soccer teams to the NCAA College Cup, five softball teams to the Women’s College World Series and three volleyball teams to the Sweet 16. The league has also had six national champions in NCAA track and field competition, one national champion in diving and numerous NCAA individual and team competitors in cross country, golf, swimming, tennis and track and field. Overall, Conference USA teams and individuals have made more than 500 NCAA appearances.

Success Off The Field C-USA institutions are among the nation’s best in academic performance among studentathletes, bolstered by the fact that student-athletes at league schools have a higher graduation rate than the general student population. Among C-USA’s 5,000 student-athletes, there are champions off the playing field as well. In 14 years, 130 student-athletes earned national ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America honors, while 461 were named All-District. In addition, more than 17,000 student-athletes have been named to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll or received the Commissioner’s Academic Medal, indicative of outstanding achievement in the classroom.

C-USa On TV C-USA enjoys significant television exposure through its partnerships with ESPN Inc., and CBS College Sports Television Networks. The league entered into long-term agreements with both ESPN and CBS College Sports, which, combined, provides C-USA with significant national and regional exposure for football, men’s and women’s basketball, and all other conference sports. Additionally, the CBS College Sports agreement includes video-on-demand, Internet, broadband, national over-the-air and satellite radio, and wireless distribution as well as corporate marketing rights, and website production through CBS Interactive. The agreement with ESPN extends the conference’s current regular season football package to include the broadcast of the confer-

ence’s Football Championship Game. It also encompasses distribution of men’s basketball and women’s basketball on ESPN/ESPN2 and both tournament championship games.

C-USa In The Community The conference’s footprint is concentrated with 12 members in nine states and a combined area population of nearly 17 million. More than 1.1 million living alumni represent C-USA schools across the nation. With a renewed commitment to community involvement, the conference has begun development of several initiatives to maintain strong ties in C-USA cities, as well as with fans and alumni across the country. C-USA schools also place a priority on giving back to their communities through volunteer service with local and national organizations.

Governance Along with the ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-10 and SEC, Conference USA is one of the seven conferences having significant representation in the NCAA governance structure. The Presidents of the member institutions serve as the league’s Board of Directors. R. Gerald Turner of SMU currently serves as chair of the Board.

a Proud History; a Promising Future Conference USA was formed in 1995 and quickly emerged as one of the nation’s top conferences. The conference unveiled its name, logo and commissioner on April 24, 1995, in Chicago. The league’s charter members included Charlotte, Cincinnati, DePaul, Houston, Louisville, Marquette, Memphis, Saint Louis, Southern Miss, Tulane, UAB and USF. Eleven of the institutions began athletic participation in 1995, while Houston joined competition in the fall of 1996. The league’s headquarters were established in Chicago and after nine years, relocated to the current office in Irving, Texas. Britton Banowsky was named Commissioner in October 2002, succeeding Mike Slive, the league’s first commissioner. C-USA added East Carolina (September, 1996) and the United States Military Academy (March, 1997) as football members. ECU began league competition in 1997; Army in 1998 and UAB began football play in 1999. The league added TCU and ECU (1999) for all sports and they began competition in 2001. USF started C-USA football in 2003. After celebrating its 10th Anniversary during the 2004-05 season, C-USA began a new chapter in 2005-06 when its current membership came together to form the new look of the league. Since its formation, C-USA has established a strong foundation, an identity and a history that reflects the league’s national presence. Fourteen years of remarkable history has reinforced the league’s position in collegiate athletics, setting the course for the next decade and beyond.

R.

C. Johnson came aboard in February of 1996 and immediately set forth in bringing U of M Tiger athletics into national prominence. Over the last 13 years, the dynamic administrator has built Tiger Athletics into a nationally-recognized program that has been to five bowl games in the last six years and played for the Men’s Basketball National Championship title in 2007-08. In addition, for the last 11 straight years, donations to the department have continued to rise, and on June 30, 2009, a record-setting $7 million was announced by the Tiger Scholarship Fund. Also in the last six years under Johnson, the Tigers have captured 14 total C-USA championships in men’s basketball, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, women’s golf and men’s track. The men’s basketball program has garnered five regular-season titles (2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009) and four C-USA Tournament championships (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009), while the women’s soccer program claimed back-to-back-to-back league championships in 2007, 2008 and 2009. Johnson is currently spearheading his second major capital campaign which benefits nearly every area of the Tiger Athletic Department. Included in the $12.9 million project is a new addition to the Athletic Office Building, a weight room and turf practice field for Tiger Football, a redesign of the Tiger baseball stadium that is currently underway, the completed golf practice facility, a renovation of the Finch Center men’s basketball practice facility and the Anfernee Hardaway Hall of Fame to honor Tiger athletes. Johnson’s first capital campaign was previously the largest fund-raising effort in the history of Memphis athletics. The $8 million campaign included a new 8,000-square-foot football and basketball office complex addition, a new basketball practice facility, which is still considered one of the best in the country, and a complete renovation of the Murphy Athletic Complex. During his tenure, Johnson has created the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll, the Tiger Scholarship Fund Board of Directors and the Athletic Director’s Ambassador’s Club. The Ambassador’s Club, which started with two members in 1997, has reached an all-time high of 37 members under Johnson. A significant revenue source for Tiger Athletics, members of the Ambassador’s Club pledge to commit $500,000. In June 2007, Johnson inked a lucrative longterm contract extension with Learfield Sports, which enabled Tiger Sports Properties to retain the multimedia rights for Memphis Athletics through 2017. The Tigers signed on with Learfield Sports in 2001, granting the partner radio and television rights, athletic venue signage, game day promotions and sponsorships, as well as the official athletic department website. Terms for the contract call for the Tigers to receive a financial guarantee each year of the agreement and to participate in annual revenue sharing. Last fall, the U of M entered into a five-year, $11.3 million partnership with Nike to provide shoes, apparel and equipment for all Tiger athletic teams. A believer in academic excellence as well as athletic success and national prominence, Johnson leads a department that set a school record with 50 percent of its student-athletes achieving a 3.0 or higher during the fall 2007 semester. For the most recent academic year, which includes fall 2008 and spring 2009, 335 student-athletes earned at least a 3.0 GPA and 12 had a 4.0 for the year and 20 others had a 4.0 either in the fall or spring. Nine teams logged a semester average of 3.0 or higher for the 2007 fall semester, and for the last four straight semesters, the athletic department as a whole has maintained a 2.8 GPA . In May 2008, 44 athletes earned their degrees, marking the largest group for one ceremony since 2002 when the athletic academic services department began keeping record. Johnson came to Memphis after serving as athletic director at Temple from 1994-1995. A long-time administrator, Johnson also served as an athletic director at Miami University (19881994) and Eastern Illinois (1980-88), and was the associate athletic director at Northern Iowa from 1974-80. An native of Ottawa, Ill., Johnson holds his bachelor’s degree in sociology from the University of Iowa in 1965 and earned his master’s degree in physical education from the University of Northern Iowa in 1967. Johnson and his wife, Melba, have three children: Jeff, P.A. and Michelle; five grandchildren and one great grandson.

n March 2002, vast improvements were beginning to take place in the CAAS. At that time, Dr. Joe Luckey took over the staff after spending the previous 10 years at Austin Peay State University. Dr. Luckey, who was nationally recognized for his outstanding leadership in 1999, came to Memphis with a vision. In just one short year, Dr. Luckey recruited six new staff members, instituted new academic programs, designed and inspired two (which is now four) special sections of ACAD 1100 for student-athletes and transitioned the office from the basement of the Elma Roane Fieldhouse to the newlyrenovated Wilder Tower. Dr. Luckey heads a full-time staff of eight, while also utilizing 20 tutors, two academic interns, graduate assistants and student workers. CAAS has a unique responsibility as an office as it provides academic services to all student-athletes and conducts all necessary paperwork for NCAA academic compliance/ certification. The academic services include orientation programs, tutoring, mentoring, academic counseling, study hall and academic advising. Further detail about the services and programs offered by CAAS are found on the website, http://www.memphis.edu/caas/index. php. Dr. Luckey has continued to challenge the Center’s staff, the coaching staffs and the student-athletes to collaboratively enhance the academic performance of U of M student-athletes. As the following highlights indicate, the group effort has resulted in positive results for the university. During the last seven academic years, 14 teams have posted their highest-ever semester GPAs, a record number of student-athletes made the C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll and the Tiger 3.0 Club, the department semester GPA record has been set, and several individual student-athletes have been recognized for prestigious national academic awards, such as the NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship and Academic All-America. Ultimately, the goal of every student-athlete is to graduate. CAAS has continued to set records here as well as 44 student-athletes graduated in May, 2009, encompassing the largest-ever graduation group for the athletics department. The CAAS received a new home during the summer of 2003 with the completion of the Wilder Tower. The Wilder Tower also houses admissions, the bursar, financial aid, the registrar, student development and academic advising. A total of 8,000 square feet, encompassing the entire sixth and seventh floors of the tower, have been designated for the CAAS. The area supports 23 student computer stations, 17 offices and numerous study tables. Four academic awards are sponsored by the CAAS as a means of honoring the top student-athletes. The Tiger 3.0 Club recognizes student-athletes who earned gradepoint averages of 3.0 during the fall/spring semesters, while the Tiger Academic Thirty is dedicated to the 30 student-athletes with the best grade-point average on each team and then the next best group of student-athletes, totaling 30. The final honor, the TEAM GPA Award, is presented to the male and female team with the best grade point average for the semester. The fourth and newest award, CAAS Academic Achievement Award, is presented to the student-athlete(s) who has overcome personal hardship but has still worked hard in the classroom.

hen the University of Memphis first fielded a football team in the fall of 1912, no one had selected a nickname for the squad. Early references to the football team tabbed them only as the Blue and Gray Warriors of West Tennessee Normal School. After the final game of the 1914 season, there was a student parade. During this event, several Normal students shouted, “We fight like Tigers.” The nickname was born. More and more the nickname “Tigers” was used, particularly in campus publications. But it did not catch on with the newspapers downtown. They continued to use “Normals” or the “Blue and Gray” when referring to the University. In the late 1920s, student publications and downtown newspapers began referring to the football team as the “Teachers” or “Tutors.” The Tiger nickname would return, but not until 1939 was it finally adopted as the official nickname for the University of Memphis. The first Tiger, TOM, was procured by the Highland Hundred Football Boosters in 1972 and served the U of M faithfully for nearly 20 years until passing away in February of 1992. The Highland Hundred officially presented TOM to the University in a ceremony at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium on November 11, 1972, during a football game against the University of Cincinnati. TOM had initially been named ‘Shane’ at the suggestion of the breeder’s daughter. Once in Memphis, though, a contest was held to name the mascot. More than 2,500 entries were submitted. The list was ultimately reduced to two choices, Shane, and TOM, which stands for Tigers Of Memphis. TOM won. In the fall of 1991, the Highland Hundred Tiger Guard received TOM II as a gift from Tom and Carolyn Atchison of Florence, Alabama. TOM II would serve with pride for 17 years through 2008, passing away on October 15th of that year. Shortly after TOM II’s death, the Tiger Guard began the search for a new tiger to serve as TOM III, and a stroke of good luck was realized in a discussion with the Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue & Educational Center in Rock Springs, Wis. Faced with three new cubs born August 31, 2008, after an unexpected pregnancy at their facility, founders Jeff Kozlowski and Jenny Meyer offered to donate one of their young tigers to serve as TOM III. TOM III was introduced at a press conference on November 17, 2008, and the Tiger Guard officially presented him to the University on November 22 during a football game against the UCF.

onsidered the “Home of the Blues” and the “Birthplace of Rock ‘n Roll,” the city of Memphis’ musical roots run deep. However, music is just a chapter in the history as well as the future of the city located in the heart of MidAmerica. Memphis, named after the capital of ancient Egypt, boasts all the amenities you would expect in a city with over 1 million residents, while retaining the charm and down-to-earth feel of a small town. Downtown Memphis recently realized a building boom valued at $2.3 billion which transformed the heart of the city. One of the most visible projects was the construction of AutoZone Park, the downtown ballpark which is the home of the Memphis Redbirds, the St. Louis Cardinals’ Triple-A club. The 14,320seat stadium includes 1,500 club seats, 48 luxury suites and is located at the corner of Third Street and Union Avenue across from the world-famous Peabody Hotel. The city’s newest downtown project is FedExForum, an entertainment arena that houses both the Memphis Grizzlies of the National Basketball Association and the University of Memphis men’s basketball team. The $250 million state-of-the-art arena features a 35,000-square-foot outdoor plaza where fans of all ages can gather before an event. The arena has over 100 points of sale for concession stands and four full-service restaurants. FedExForum is located one block south of Beale Street. Beale Street has rapidly become the entertainment center of Memphis and visitors and locals alike enjoy the food and music offered in the various nightclubs. Where Beale Street meets the Mississippi River is Tom Lee Park, site of the annual Beale Street Music Festival. The weekend-long event is just a part of the month-long Memphis in May International Festival which also includes the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest and the Sunset Symphony. Also located within a block of Beale is Gibson Guitar Memphis, which includes factory tours and cultural exhibits. Across the street is the Smithsonian’s Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum located at the FedExForum, which includes artifacts documenting music’s past. Memphis’ musical roots also include Stax and Hi-Records as well as Sun Records recording studio. Stax became known for “sweet soul music” through such artists as the MarKeys, Booker T. and the MGs, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam and Dave and Isaac Hayes. One of Hi-Records’ premier artists was Al Green. Sun Records’ most famous recording artist was Elvis Presley and also boasted Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash among its recording artists. Elvis Presley’s Graceland is one of the five most visited home tours in America and is the most famous home in the United States after the White House. In 1991, Graceland was placed on the National Register of Historical Places. Over 600,000 visitors tour Graceland each year. The city’s location makes Memphis a major distribution hub with two interstate highways intersecting the city. Memphis is also home of FedEx, the nation’s largest package carrier which makes Memphis International Airport the world’s busiest cargo airport. Over 500 commercial passenger flights originate from Memphis International each day.
