Jack Steck enters his 28th season as the Bears’ head coach, and his 42nd year overall at the collegiate level. Steck continues his guidance over the distance group for both the men and women. 2009-10 was a career year for Steck and the women’s team. The Bears recorded their third consecutive (seventh overall) Missouri Valley Conference title. Their 275.5 point margin of victory is the second-largest in conference history. The men competed in the Sun Belt Conference for the first time. Though the men entered as favorites, the Bears struggled and left Ypsilanti, Mich. with a third-place finish. Coach Steck paved the way for the Bears to succeed in 2008-09. The men’s squad barely missed out on its second Sun Belt Championship, but ended the season ranked second among mid-major programs by CSCAA. The women’s squad won their sixth conference championship in seven years and their second consecutive. The women also finished ranked ninth among mid-majors by CSCAA. Steck oversaw the men’s team transition into the Mid-American Conference from the Sun Belt. Coach Steck led the men’s and women’s swimming and diving programs to the top of each squad’s respective conference in the 2007-08 season. The MSU men captured their first Sun Belt Championship, after being a member of the conference for only two seasons. The men finished the season with a sixth place CSCAA mid-major poll ranking and a dual meet record of 8-3. Steck guided the women’s team to reclaim the title at the Missouri Valley Conference meet in 2007-08. The Bears’ women finished with a record of 5-8 and placed 12 athletes on the all-MVC First-team list. He was awarded MVC Women’s Coach of the Year. Steck’s overall record for both the men’s and women’s teams is 311148-1. In the 2006-07 season, Missouri State men’s swimming and diving team became a member of the Sun Belt Conference. Missouri State displayed its strength in the league, capturing a third-place finish. The men ended the season with an 8-3 dual meet record. The 2006-07 women’s squad posted a 5-10 dual meet record and a second-place Missouri Valley Conference finish behind rival Southern Illinois University. In the 2005-06 season, Steck guided the men’s team to a 10-2 dual meet record and their second straight Valley Invitational title. The 2005-06 women’s swimming and diving team concluded dual meet action with a 10-6 record, claiming its fourth straight MVC title under Steck. Steck was named the 2005-06 MVC Women’s Coach of the Year for the third consecutive season. In the 2004-05 season, Steck led the men’s team to a 10-4 dual meet record and the women’s team to an 8-7 record. Steck was named MVC Women’s Coach of the Year as he guided the women’s team to its third straight Missouri Valley Conference title. He also led the men to win the Missouri Valley Invitational. In 1994, Missouri State became an inaugural member of the Missouri Valley Conference in men’s swimming and quickly established itself as a league power, capturing runner-up finishes from 1995 to 1999 and winning titles in 2000, 2001, 2003 and 2005. Prior to joining the Valley, Steck guided the Bears to five titles in the Mid-Continent Conference, including four straight crowns before MSU began swimming independently in 1990-91. In its first year of competition without a conference, Missouri State took first at the Midwest Regional meet and Steck was named the 1991 Midwest Coach of the Year. Steck came to Missouri State in 1983 after 15 seasons at the helm of

the Drury University men’s program. He started the swimming team at Drury on a club basis and took the Panthers to the last Missouri College Athletic Union championship in 1968. The program moved to varsity level in 1968-69 and began a Missouri small college dominance that quickly grew.

Dave Collins

Associate Head Coach Drury University, 2005 4th Season Dave Collins joined head coach Jack Steck’s staff in 2007 after a successful stint as head coach of the Springfield Parkview High and Ozark High swimming and diving programs. In his first season as an assistant coach for the Bears, Collins helped lead the men to their first Sun Belt Conference Championship. He also helped coach the women’s team recaptured the Missouri Valley Conference title in the 2007-08 seasons. With his guidance, three swimmers from the 2007-08 men’s squad made the NCAA National B cuts, a major accomplishment for collegiate swimmers. Under Collins’ tuteledge, the stroke (butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and individual medley) group has been a force to be reckoned with on both the men’s and women’s teams. Since Collins came to Missouri State for the 2007-08 season, the women have not lost the 200-yard medley relay, 100-yard backstroke, nor the 200-yard IM. The men’s team has had similar success. Every year the Bears were in the Sun Belt Conference (2007-09) the Bears won first place in the 200-yard IM, the 100-yard fly and the 400-yard medley relay. More impressively, in 2008, Missouri State won every event in which Collins was affiliated, except for the 200-yard backstroke. During the 2009-10 season, Collins helped coach five individual conference champions (100-yard butterfly, 100-yard backstroke, 200-yard backstroke, 200-yard breaststroke and 200-yard IM) for the women, two individual conference champions for the men (100-yard backstroke and 200-yard butterfly) as well as winning the 200-yard and 400-yard medley relays for each team at their respective conference championships. In 2008-09, Collins helped coach a Missouri State women’s team that won every non-freestyle event at the MVC Championship, except the 100 breaststroke. He also had the pleasure of coaching Jordan Hawkins, one of the most decorated swimmers in Missouri State history. Under Collins, Hawkins obtained three MVC individual records, MVC Swimmer of the Meet honors, MSU Female Swimmer of the Year, and qualified for the World Championship trials. The men had great success as well, rewriting the record books en route to a second-place finish at the SBC Championships. In August of 2008, Collins was named associate head swimming coach. His responsibilities are focused predominately on training the backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and individual medley groups. Collins also has the task of coordinating recruiting duties for both men’s and women’s squads. One of Collins’ many feats in recruiting has been establishing a strong international base. He has coached such talent as Victor Serra (who won the 200 Fly at Spanish Short Course nationals), Roko Simunic (who set a Croation record in the 50 Back and has become a nationally ranked swimmer), and Nicolas Villarroel (who placed highly in the south American championships and holds the Central American record in the 50 Back). In recruiting, he has landed such talent as Marta Nogueroles, Niklas Gustafsson and Heather Fulton. He is a member of the American Swim Coaches Association as well as the College Swim Coaches Association. Collegiately, Collins was an academic All-American while swimming at Drury University. He specialized in the backstroke events, helping the Panthers to Division II national titles in 2003 and 2005 and national runner-up finishes in 2002 and 2004. The San Antonio, Texas product earned a Bachelor of Arts in design arts in 2005 from Drury and continued as a graduate assistant completing his masters in communications in 2007. Collins continues to serve as head coach of the Missouri State Aquatics club team, where he works to develop swimmers of all ages. Collins has coached numerous Missouri Valley LSC top-eight finishers, sectional qualifiers and produced the programs first Junior National qualifier and High School All-American.

Vic Riffel

Volunteer Assistant Coach Missouri State, 2009 1st Season After swimming for the Bears for four years, Vic Riffel will assist the coaching staff as a volunteer assistant coach. His primary focus will be with the stroke groups. As a swimmer, Riffel was a standout in the individual medley and distance events. He currently holds the school record in the 400-yard IM with his time of 3:51.79. Riffel is also second all-time in the 1650-yard freestyle (15:34.43) and fifth all-time in the 500-yard freestyle (4:29.31). Riffel is a three-time Sun Belt Conference Medallion Winner and was named all-MVC as a freshman. Addionally, Riffel was a standout in the classroom. He was named to the MSU Academic Honor Roll each of his four years. Riffel is currently a Graduate Student at MSU, seeking a degree in Administrative Studies with an emphasis in Sports Management.

Jim Huelskamp

Diving Coach University of Nebraska, 1988 7th Season Diving coach James Huelskamp enters his seventh season with Missouri State. He joined the Missouri State swimming and diving staff in 2004 after more than two decades of competing and coaching at a variety of schools in Nebraska. Huelskamp has been awarded Missouri Valley Conference Diving Coach of the year an astounding three times. It is the most awards in conference history. In his sixth season as a coach, Huelskamp’s divers were again sensational. The 2009-10 season marked the third time in school history that a Bear diver placed first on the one-meter board at the MVC championship. Heather Fulton’s 250.25 earned first-place for the Bears en route to their historic team title. For the men, Eric Ducourneau was again sensational, as he placed fourth on the three-meter board in the highly competitive Mid-American Conference championship. Huelskamp sent three divers to the Zone D Championship. Ducourneau was the top finisher for the Bears, finishing 14th on the three-meter board. The 2008-09 season was a strong campaign for Huelskamp. Three of his divers qualified for the Zone D Championships. Eric Ducourneau shattered the school record on the three-meter board with his 365.85 at Lindenwood University. In 2007-08, Heulskamp helped lead Missouri State to it’s first ever Sun Belt Championship title. He coached MSU Diver of the Year Eric Ducourneau to a second-place finish on the one-meter board and a third-place finish on the three-meter board at the conference championship. He led Ducourneau, one of 13 divers selected from the region, to the NCAA Zone D Championships. On the women’s side, Heulskamp was named MVC Diving Coach of the Year as he led the Bears to a MVC Championship, guiding conference champion Chelsea Ray to a first-place finish on the three-meter board and a fifth-place finish on the one-meter board. Huelskamp received his Bachelor of Arts in Industrial Education from the University of Nebraska in 1988.   Competitively, Huelskamp dove for Nebraska and was a member of the four-time Big 8 Championship Diving Team. He was a four-year letterman (1983-88) and qualified for the NCAA Pre-Qual Competitions on both the one and three-meter board. He also qualified to compete at the Senior Nationals on the 10-meter platform.   Huelskamp has since coached a number of the top divers from the Omaha, Neb. area, including 13 metro champions, five state champions and five All-Americans. He graduated from College Prep Burke Senior High (Omaha, Neb.) in 1983.

Josh Udermann

Graduate Assistant Coach Missouri State, 2009 1st Season Josh Udermann is returning to the Missouri State swimming and diving team, but this time as a graduate assistant. He will have the responsibility of coaching the sprint freestyle groups for the men’s and women’s teams. Udermann should feel comfortable in his new role after swimming four years under head coach Jack Steck in the sprint group. Udermann is a 2009 Missouri State University graduate. In his time at Missouri State, Udermann double-majored in Art and Design along with Print Journalism. He also has a double-minor in History and Spanish. Even with all of his undergraduate accolades, Udermann is expected to graduate in the spring of 2011 with a Masters of Science in Administrative Studies with an emphasis in Sports Management. As a swimmer, He was also an age-group coach for the Missouri State Aquatics club team, a responsibility that he plans to continue as a coach. Udermann earned success in the pool as well as the classroom. He appeared on the Dean’s List for eight consecutive semesters and the MSU Academic Honor Roll for all four years. Udermann and his team were MVC champions for the 2005-06 season, the final year of men’s swimming in the MVC. The Bears then began competition in the SunBelt Conference, where Udermann was an honorable mention all-SBC pick his first year in the conference. The Bears were then champions in 2007-08, and runner-up for Udermann’s senior year of 08-09. Udermann was selected as a co-captain by his teammates during his senior year.

2009-10 Season Review The 2009-10 Missouri State swimming and diving teams celebrated successful seasons for both the men’s and women’s squads. At one point, the men were ranked as high as fourth on the Collegeswimming.com mid-major national poll. The women’s team won the Missouri Valley Conference championship for the third consecutive year (seventh overall) and their 275.5 point win margin is the second-largest margin of victory in MVC history. The season began with a bang, as both squads travelled to Columbia, Mo. on Oct. 10 to compete in the Missouri Showdown at the University of Missouri. This meet featured the top talent from the state of Missouri. Since the meet was early in the year, all races were conducted as sprint events. This favored the Bears, as the men’s team emerged victorious, defeating in-state foe University of Missouri to win the crown of top swim team in Missouri. The women’s team just missed out, capturing second place behind Missouri. The Bears then travelled to Macomb, Ill. on Oct. 23 to take on the Western Illinois Leathernecks. Again, the men’s team captured the top spot, as did the women’s team. It was the first dual-meet win on the season for both squads. Continuing the road trip, the squads travelled to Iowa City, Iowa to take on the University of Iowa. This meet was a challenge for both squads. In the end, Iowa swept the Bears to send both squads to 1-1 dual records on the season. The Bears’ next meet was on Oct. 31, homecoming weekend at Missouri State. The Bears hosted in-town rival Drury University at Hammons Student Center pool. Drury is one of the top swimming programs in NCAA Division II. This meet was one of the best meets for the Bears all season. Both teams came out in a flurry with pool and varsity records dropping throughout the meet. Though Drury set a new pool record in the women’s 200-yard IM, the Bears swept the day with both the men’s and women’s squads defeating the Panthers. On the heels of that victory, the Bears hosted another home meet on Nov. 6, where they took on the Lindenwood University Lions. The Bears had no issues in sweeping the Lions to earn their third dual-meet victory of the season. Each team improved their records to 3-1. The following day, Nov. 7, Missouri State travelled to Kirksville, Mo. for a dual meet against Truman State University. While the men’s team was able to down the Bulldogs, the women struggled and were defeated for only the second time all year. After the Truman State meet, the Bears began their tough mid-season schedule. Head coach Jack Steck and his teams were slated to swim in two competitive invitational meets, including the Purdue University Invitational on Nov. 20-22. The Purdue Invite was the most difficult test for the Bears all season. The Bears had to swim against the likes of Ohio State, Michigan, Louisville and host school Purdue. Although the both the men’s and women’s teams were at the bottom of the standings, many swimmers rose up to the occasion. At the time, Roko Simunic’s time of 48.04 in the 100-yard backstroke was the fastest time in the country.

The Bears then finished their invitational schedule at the Tunica Invitational on Jan 8-9. In this invitational, Missouri State was the top team, defeating teams such as Delta State, Centenary and Eastern Illinois State. In Tunica, the women scored 1,061 of the 3,301 total points in the sixteam meet, while the men scored 988.50 of 3205.0 points. Missouri State Swimming and Diving 2010 Guide

On Jan. 16, Missouri State returned home for a double-dual against Truman State and MVC-rival Southern Illinois. Since the women’s team has joined the MVC, either Missouri State or Southern Illinois has won the conference crown. The women’s team was seeking revenge after their defeat earlier in the season. Both teams took care of business, sweeping their opponents for the fourth and fifth times that season. The next week, Jan. 21, the Bears jumped across town to swim at Drury University for the second of the two meets. Although the Bears were strong against the Panthers earlier in the season, Drury was the better team on this day, just defeating the men’s and women’s teams becoming only the second team to sweep the Bears all season. Eventually, the Panthers would be crowned NCAA Division II National Champions for the second consecutive year, making them the first team to ever win back-to-back titles for the men and women. Immediately after that loss, the Bears hosted Evansville on Senior Night on Jan. 22. With many of the swimmers tapering for their conference events, a majority of the swimming was done by freshmen. Even with this adversity, the Bears walked away with a win. Both squads finished their home schedules undefeated at home with a perfect 5-0 record. Missouri State wrapped up their dual-meet season with a trip to St. Charles, Mo. to take on Lindenwood, Saint Louis and Illinois Tech in a triple dual meet. Both teams earned three wins on the day, bringing the men’s record to 10-2 and the women’s record to 9-3. The conference tournaments began with the women’s meet in Carbondale, Ill. on Feb. 11. The women entered the meet as strong favorites in the conference standings. The Bears did not disappoint. After the dust settled on the threeday meet, Missouri State was named the Missouri Valley Conference champion for the third consecutive year. This meet stood apart from the rest, as the Bears won in record fashion. Their 275.5 point win margin was the largest margin of victory since Missouri State joined the Valley. The Bears walked away with 12 First Team all-MVC honorees, 7 Honorable Mention all-MVC honorees, a Coach of the Year Award, a Diving Coach of the Year award and a new conference record in the 200-yard medley relay. According to head coach Jack Steck, it was “the finest performance I’ve ever seen in a conference meet.”

Providing leadership in education and diversity, the Mid-American Conference moves into its 64th year of service to the student-athlete. Since its inception in 1946, the Mid-American Conference has progressively grown and developed into one of the most aggressive Division I conferences in the country. One of only 11 football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) conferences, the MAC named Dr. Jon Steinbrecher as its eighth commissioner in the 63-year history of the league this past March. Steinbrecher came to the MAC after serving for six years as the commissioner of the Ohio Valley Conference.

Commissioner Steinbrecher

The league has grown its commitment to championships by expanding to six its number of neutral site post season events – football (Detroit’s Ford Field), volleyball (Toledo’s SeaGate Centre), men’s and women’s basketball (Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena), softball (Akron’s Firestone Stadium) and most recently baseball (Chillicothe’s VA Memorial Stadium).

The MAC tied a league record in 2008 with five schools participating in bowl games – Buffalo (International); Ball State (GMAC); Central Michigan (Motor City); Western Michigan (Texas); and Northern Illinois (Independence Bowl). The 2008 season also saw the first MAC football team ranked in the Top 25 since 2003. Ball State was ranked as high as 12th in the BCS Standings, 12th in the AP and 13th in the USA Today Poll. The Cardinals were ranked in all three polls for 10 straight weeks. MAC football teams won a league record four games versus opponents from the Big Ten. Toledo became the first MAC team to ever beat Michigan in Ann Arbor; Ball State won its first-ever game against a Big Ten foe when the Cardinals beat Indiana; Central Michigan also defeated Indiana; and Western Michigan beat Illinois in a game played at Ford Field. In its partnership with ESPN, the MAC signed an eight-year rights agreement through the 2016-2017 academic year for football, as well as men’s and women’s basketball. The deal will be the most extensive in the 63-year history of the conference. The new deal calls for a minimum of 25 events annually to be produced and aired on an ESPN platform including the men’s and women’s basketball championships, a regular-season MAC presence on ESPN, the Marathon MAC Football Championship and a minimum of 11 regular-season football games. Women’s athletics shined for the MAC this past year. For the first time in the history of the conference the MAC sent three teams to the NCAA women’s volleyball tournament (Miami, Ohio and Western Michigan). Western Michigan became only the third team to make it to the Sweet Sixteen (Ohio 2005 and Western Michigan 1983). In women’s basketball MAC Tournament Champion Ball State upset perennial national power Tennessee in the first round of the NCAA tournament handing the Lady Vols their first ever loss in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. The victory was named “Pontiac Game Changing Performance” of the 2009 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament, while first year head coach Kelly Packard was named Maggie Dixon Division I Rookie Coach of the Year by the WBCA. Akron continued its dominance of MAC men’s soccer with its 11 regular-season championship to go along with its sixth MAC Tournament title – both league records. The Zips were ranked as high as No. 2 during the season and reached the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament before falling to Northwestern, 1-0. Steve Zakuani, who helped guide the University of Akron men’s soccer program to a record-setting campaign in 2008, was the first overall pick of the 2009 Major League Soccer Super Draft. Zakuani earned 2008 MAC Men’s Soccer Player of the Year honors and was a finalist for the Hermann Trophy, which goes to the best men’s soccer player in the country. The conference now has national leadership positions on the following NCAA committees: Warde Manual, Buffalo (Academic Cabinet); Susan Lipnickey, Miami (Leadership Council and Infractions Appeals); Derrick Gragg, Eastern Michigan (Legislative Council); Dr. John Peters, Northern Illinois (Board of Directors); Tom Collins, Ball State (Amateurism Cabinet); Kelly Andrews, Toledo (Awards, benefits, Expenses & Financial Aid Cabinet); Stephannnie Harvey-Vandenburg, Eastern Michigan (Recruiting & Athletic Personal Issues Cabinet); Brad Bates, Miami (Academic Performance); Eileen Jennings, Central Michigan (Infractions); Ted McKown, Kent State (International Students Records); Jim Klein, Toledo (Legislative Review & Interpretations); Karin Lee, Ball State (Minority Opportunities and Interest); Melody Reifel Werner, Eastern Michigan (Research); Catharine Marsszeky, Kent State (Student-Athlete Advisory); Lee Merserve, Bowling

History of the MAC Based in Cleveland since July 1999 following a 15-year stay in Toledo, Ohio, the MAC has established historic measurements in both football and men’s and women’s basketball since moving to Northeast Ohio. The Mid-American Conference was founded as a five-school league on February 24, 1946 in Columbus, Ohio with Ohio, Butler, Cincinnati, Wayne State and Western Reserve admitted as charter members.

For men, championships (11) are sponsored in football, basketball, baseball, cross country, soccer, swimming and diving, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, wrestling, golf and tennis.

This is the Missouri Valley Conference

From its early beginning to its current standing on the map of college athletics, the Missouri Valley Conference continues to be proactive in its approach as it enters its 104th year in 2010-11. The nation’s second-oldest NCAA Division I conference is a leader in college athletics and is one of the nation’s most progressive conferences. The Missouri Valley Conference enters a new decade facing a rapidly changing environment in NCAA Division I athletics as conference expansion and realignment swept the nation in the summer of 2010. Although The Valley was untouched, the league will remain vigilant in monitoring changes or potential changes in other conferences that might impact membership, or present opportunities for expansion. Men’s basketball continues to be the engine that drives Valley athletic programs. With UNI’s NCAA Sweet 16 appearance in 2010, the league has had four different Sweet 16 teams since 2006, and The Valley is the only non-BCS league with more than two different Sweet 16 teams in that span. Notably, the run of nine straight seasons with two or more teams in the NCAAs ended in 2007, as the past three seasons have seen only the tournament champion included in the NCAA field. Last year, UNI team swept both the regular season and State Farm MVC Tournament titles, earning the Valley’s lone NCAA Tournament berth in the process. The Panthers escaped with a 69-66 victory over UNLV in the NCAA’s opening round. UNI then became the first MVC team to beat a #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament since Cincinnati beat #1-ranked Ohio State in the NCAA championship game in 1962, toppled #1-seeded Kansas 69-67. Ali Farokmanesh’s key field goals in the final moments of both tournament games sealed those victories and the Panthers finished with school-record 30 wins (30-5) with a loss to Michigan State in the Sweet 16 in St. Louis. Notably, The Valley made history in March 2007 with record attendance for four days at St. Louis’ Scottrade Center as 85,074 fans turned out to watch the five sessions of the tournament. The two sellout crowds of 22,612 for the semifinals and final of the 2007 State Farm Tournament set an alltime attendance record for basketball at the arena and also gave The Valley the distinction of having the largest championship crowd for any of the 30 NCAA conference tournaments in 2007. The State Farm MVC Tournament continues to be a spectacular showcase for the league, and the MVC has extended the tournament agreement with the Scottrade Center that will keep Arch Madness in St. Louis through 2013. At the 2011 State Farm MVC Championship, the league will surpass 1,000,000 in total attendance for the event, now in its 21st year. While the success of men’s basketball has received the greatest attention, the overall performance of league teams in virtually every sport continues to raise the national profile of the conference. In women’s basketball, the MVC matched a league-high tying six teams earning post-season berths, while 2010 marked the 11th-straight season that the Valley earned at least three post-season bids. Illinois State advanced to the semifinals of the WNIT, marking the fourth time in league history a Valley school has played in the WNIT semifinals, while Bradley and Wichita State earned their first-ever postseason wins in program history. UNI won its first-ever State Farm MVC Championship title, earning its first berth to the NCAA Tournament field of 64. The conference remains committed to keeping the tournament at a neutral site at the Family Arena in St. Charles as establishing a neutral site remains a huge part of the overall efforts to improve women’s basketball in The Valley. In volleyball, for the sixth time in league history, two MVC teams were invited to dance in the 2009 NCAA Volleyball Championship – UNI and Wichita State. With first-round wins over Washington State and Saint Louis, respectively, it marked just the second time in MVC history that two teams advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament in the same season (2006 – Missouri State and UNI). In baseball, Illinois State clinched a share of the regular-season MVC title for the first time in league

history, and the Redbirds went on to take home the State Farm MVC Baseball Tournament trophy as well, topping host and top-seeded Wichita State. Illinois State earned just its second-ever bid to the NCAA Tournament. In softball, the MVC returned to its multi-bid status after a one-year hiatus, sending two teams – Creighton and Illinois State – to the NCAA Tournament. The 2010 campaign marked the seventh time in eight seasons that the Valley has placed multiple teams into the NCAA field. In men’s soccer, for the 13th time in league history, at least two MVC teams were invited to dance in the 2009 NCAA Men’s Soccer Championship –Drake and Missouri State. The Bulldogs won their first-ever league tournament championship and saw their magical run end at the NCAA Elite Eight, falling to No. 4 North Carolina, 2-1. The 2009 campaign marked the third-straight season, and the ninth time in the past 10 years, that a Valley men’s soccer team advanced to at least the Quarterfinal Round of the NCAA Championship. In men’s golf, Wichita State’s Dustin Garza built a resume worthy of earning him the No. 1 Golfstat Cup ranking for most of the season as he won individual medalist honors seven times last year to lead the country in tournament wins. Meanwhile, the success of The Valley television package is one of the great stories in the league. The MVC Television Network has blossomed into a revenuegenerating vehicle and The Valley’s most visible marketing tool. Meanwhile, The Valley is making video-streaming a major focus as it enters the second year of a three-year plan to upgrade the production and marketing of both institutionally-produced and conference-produced webcasts. The 2003-04 campaign was a landmark for the conference as State Farm Insurance and the league came to terms on an agreement that provides State Farm with title sponsorship of all of the league’s 18 championships. Last fall, The Valley took a major step toward ensuring current revenues in television media and tournament sponsorship sales would be guaranteed in future years when it announced a 10year partnership with Learfield Sports. The Jefferson City, Missouri-based company now has the exclusive sales and marketing rights to MVC assets that include championships and television advertising. During the tenure of Doug Elgin, The Valley’s ninth and longest-tenured commissioner, The Valley has been aggressive in hosting NCAA events in St. Louis. Since 1998, the MVC served as host for a staggering nine NCAA tournament events in the 13-year period, which has made St. Louis one of the most frequent stops on the NCAA Tournament trail. The Valley hosted Women’s Final Fours in 2001 and 2009, and the Men’s Final Four in 2005. The seeds for the creation of the conference were planted by eight administrators representing five institutions, who met at the Midland Hotel in Kansas City, Mo., on Jan. 12, 1907. The five schools which formed the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association were Washington University of St. Louis, and the state universities of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. Two months after the initial meeting, two more schools -- Drake University and Iowa State College -- were admitted. In the fall of 1907, basketball became the first competitive sport. Today, the Missouri Valley Conference sponsors the following sports: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country and track & field (indoor and outdoor), men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, women’s swimming and diving, men’s and women’s tennis, and women’s volleyball. While The Valley no longer sponsors football (it did from 1907-85), six league members compete in football at the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision) level as Illinois State, Indiana State, Missouri State, UNI and Southern Illinois play in the nine-member Missouri Valley Football Conference (with North

Missouri State Swimming and Diving 2010 Guide

Dakota State, South Dakota State, Western Illinois and Youngstown State). That league competed as the Gateway Conference from 1985-2007. Drake plays non-scholarship football in the Pioneer Football League. This season, the league will conduct its 100th outdoor track and field championship, its 93rd tennis championship, its 57th baseball tournament, and its 73rd golf championship for the men. Those programs, plus other current sponsored sports of cross country (52 years), indoor track (44), soccer (20) and swimming and diving (17), have helped solidify The Valley as one of the nation’s most respected conferences. Athletic accomplishments on the men’s athletics side include 14 national basketball championships, 16 trips to the NCAA Final Four, a 1989 national baseball championship and 19 College World Series qualifiers. In 2010, Missouri State’s men’s basketball program won the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament, the league’s first national title in men’s basketball since 1982 (Bradley, NIT). In 2001, Missouri State added to The Valley women’s accomplishments, as the Lady Bears advanced to the Women’s Basketball Final Four in St. Louis. Creighton (2004) and Missouri State (2005) have claimed national championships (WNIT) in women’s basketball, while MSU also has a 1992 NCAA Women’s Final Four appearance, and Creighton (2003), Drake (1999) and Illinois State (2009) have made semifinal trips to the WNIT postseason tournament. Indeed, the inclusion of women’s programs under The Valley banner has provided a boost. The Gateway Collegiate Athletic Conference -- which began in 1982 -- merged with the Missouri Valley Conference and was unveiled as part of the new conference on July 1, 1992. And while the inclusion of women’s sports under a comprehensive athletic umbrella is a recent development in the league’s storied history, over the years, Valley student-athletes and coaches have become household names during the league’s illustrious history, both during their collegiate careers and, for some, professional careers. In fact, The Valley began honoring that tradition in the summer of 1997, when the conference began its athletics Hall of Fame. Hersey Hawkins of Bradley, Larry Bird of Indiana State, Wes Unseld of Louisville, Coach Henry Iba of Oklahoma State, Dave Stallworth of Wichita State, Ed Macauley of Saint Louis, and Oscar Robertson of Cincinnati were members of the initial induction class. Currently, more than 60 former players, coaches and alums dot the league’s Hall of Fame. Men’s basketball, perhaps, has the league’s most storied tradition with the likes of Hall of Famers Bird and Robertson, but The Valley has also produced nationalcaliber student-athletes in its other sponsored sports. In 2001, Missouri State’s Jackie Stiles became the first Valley woman to earn the Honda-Broderick Cup, given to the nation’s top female collegiate student-athlete. In the sport of track and field, Indiana State’s Holli Hyche captured seven national sprint titles in the early 1990s, Southern Illinois’ Darrin Plab won back-to-back NCAA outdoor high jump titles in 1991 and 1992, SIU’s Brittany Riley became the World record holder in the weight throw in 2007. And Kylie Hutson of Indiana State swept both the indoor and outdoor pole vault titles in 2009. Hutson repeated as a national champion in the pole vault in 2010. In the fall of 1997, Creighton’s Johnny Torres was named the collegiate male soccer player of the year for a second-straight year, while SMU’s Luchi Gonzalez (2001) and Tulsa’s Ryan Pore (2004) have also earned a National Player of the Year honor in men’s soccer. Meanwhile league member Wichita State has produced three national collegiate players of the year in baseball, including Joe Carter (1981), Phil Stephenson (1982) and Darren Dreifort (1993). League members include Bradley, Creighton, Drake, Evansville, Illinois State, Indiana State, Missouri State, Northern Iowa, Southern Illinois, and Wichita State. Central Arkansas and Southern IllinoisEdwardsville are men’s soccer affiliates, beginning in 2010.

Missouri State Vice Presidents & Faculty Representative

President First Year at Missouri State

Dr. James E. Cofer, Sr., began his first year as president of Missouri State University on August 2. He was introduced to the campus and Springfield community as the school’s 10th president on May 14, following a nationwide search. Cofer came to Springfield after serving as president of the University of Louisiana at Monroe since 2002. He replaced Dr. Michael T. Nietzel, who had been MSU’s president since July 2005. Additionally, Cofer will be a tenured professor in MSU’s College of Business Administration. “I am deeply honored by the Board’s decision and its confidence in me,” Cofer said on May 14. “I have been a fan of Missouri State University for many years and I look forward to continuing the good work that has been done here. Working with the faculty, staff, students, community, governmental leaders and all other constituent groups, I think we can create and achieve a shared vision for the university.” Cofer earned a reputation as the leader of an “extraordinary renaissance” at the University of Louisiana at Monroe over his eight years as president. When he and his wife, Deborah, arrived at ULM in 2002, they immediately began the “Reclaiming Our Campus” campaign, which involved more than 2,000 students, faculty, staff, community leaders, and area citizens who cleaned, planted flowers and repainted the campus. Shortly thereafter, Cofer developed an ambitious visionary plan that included more than $80 million in new construction and renovations on campus. Students, whose academic achievements continue to proliferate every year, now enjoy the newest, up-to-date residence halls, state-of-the-art “smart classrooms,” a completely-renovated Student Union Building and multiple campus security improvements. In 2007, students rated ULM higher than ever before – breaking a record for student satisfaction at the institution and surpassing student satisfaction at the national level. With the help of engaged faculty, ULM also patterned its mathematics and English course redesigns after the National Center for Academic Transformation’s Roadmap to Redesign philosophy, utilizing sound methodology, student-centered learning, clear assessment criteria and effective technology incorporation in 2007. To further encourage student success, ULM implemented living-learning communities, peer and faculty mentoring programs, extensive undergraduate research initiatives and advanced technological modalities. Cognizant of adult learners and today’s busy student, Cofer advocated “anytime, anywhere, anyplace instruction,” resulting in additional online courses and degree programs at ULM. Cofer earned his Ed.D. in Higher Education Administration from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in December 1998. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in 1971 and his MBA in 1975, both from Mississippi State University. Prior to becoming president of the University of Louisiana at Monroe in March of 2002, Cofer served as vice president for finance and administration for the University of Missouri System from 1998-2002. Prior to that, he was vice president for finance and administration for the University of Arkansas System from 1995-98; Eisenhower Fellow in Budapest, Hungary, in 1995-96; and vice chancellor for fiscal affairs and treasurer of the Board of Regents for the University System of Georgia from 1991-95. He also has held positions in finance and administration with the Mississippi Power and Light Company; Murray State University; the State of Mississippi; and the Mississippi Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning. Cofer and his wife, Deborah, have two children and two grandchildren.

From day one he emphasized the importance of fostering a strategic vision in the current landscape of intercollegiate athletics by involving all corners of the campus community in developoing a long-range plan for the MSU Athletics. Moats played a key role in Missouri State’s new partnership with Nelligan Sports Marketing (NSM), announced in February 2010. The agreement will result in the outsourcing of the departments’ marketing and corporate sales operations while maximizing revenue potential for MSU Athletics. Additionally, Moats was instrumental in MSU’s negotiations for a new television contract this past summer.   Prior to his arrival in Springfield, Moats spent four years as associate athletics director for national marketing at Louisville. In that capacity, he coordinated the Cardinals’ efforts in national awareness, marketing, branding and group ticket sales. He also worked closely with Nelligan, which manages the exclusive marketing rights for Cardinal Athletics. Moats oversaw the Louisville band and spirit squads as the liaison with student government and student spirit groups.   Prior to joining the Louisville staff, Moats served as senior associate athletic director for two years at Marquette University, where oversaw the Golden Eagles’ Blue and Gold Fund, media relations, ticket operations, special events, licensing, radio, television, marketing and promotions and sponsorships with NSM.   He also worked 14 years in the University of Kentucky athletics department, including his last three there as associate athletics director for marketing (2000-02).   Moats joined the UK staff as a graduate assistant in the athletics office in 1989, and in 1991 was promoted to coordinator of promotions and special events. He became the Wildcats’ director of marketing, promotions and licensing in 1993 before being named assistant athletics director for marketing in 1996. He served as tournament manager for the 1993 NCAA Golf Championships and the 1996 and 1998 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament events in Lexington.   A native of Dixon, Ill., Moats is a 1988 graduate of Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville with a bachelor’s degree in physical education. While at SIUE, Moats was a three-year letterwinner in golf and was a student assistant basketball coach for the Cougars from 1985-1988. He earned a master’s degree in sports management from the University of Kentucky in 2001.   Moats and his wife, Leeann, have two children, Kirk and Lauren.
