Track and Field Coaching Staff

Ronald Boyce Director of Track and Field and Cross Country

15th Season Murray State, 1989

Ronald Boyce enters his 15th year heading the Missouri State women’s track program. Boyce was named the fifth head coach in the program’s history in 1997 after spending one year as an assistant. In 2010, his title officially changed to Director of Track and Field and Cross Country. Since joining the Missouri State staff in 1996, Boyce has built the women’s team into one of the most respected programs in the Midwest and the premier program in the Missouri Valley Conference, as evidenced by his selection to the MVC’s AllCentennial Team in 2007. Boyce’s indoor and outdoor track and field teams have claimed eight Missouri Valley Conference Championships and have been Valley runners-up six times since he took the helm. Directing a balanced program has long been a goal of Boyce’s. That goal was realized during the 2002-03 seasons, as Missouri State claimed its first MVC running Triple Crown. On top of Boyce’s eight league track and field titles the cross country program has added four of its own. Since the 1997-98 seasons, the Bears track and field and cross country program has won at least one league title during eight of those 14 years. Boyce has been the mastermind behind a Missouri State women’s program that has seen its fair share of individual success as well. MSU track and field athletes have accumulated 139 individual and relay event championships and have brought home 437 All-Conference medals since 1996. In 2010, Boyce coached Jodiann Walker not only to an indoor 60-meter dash champion, but also to a place in Missouri State

history. At the MVC Indoor Championships, Walker’s preliminary time of 7.51 seconds was the second fastest time in Bear history. Running in the finals the next day, she finished in 7.54, the fifth fastest time at MSU, to win the event. A nine-time MVC Coach of the Year (five indoors, three outdoors, one cross country), Boyce is regarded as one of the top developers of sprint and hurdle athletes in the country. Under his direction, the Missouri State women have dominated the Missouri Valley Conference. While setting every MSU women’s sprint and hurdles record during his tenure, Boyce’s athletes own nine MVC all-time records and 12 MVC championship records. His sprint and hurdle athletes have also racked up numerous honors, compiling 290 All-Missouri Valley Conference medals, 98 MVC individual titles, 48 MVC runner-up finishes times and 33 third-place finishes. Boyce earned MVC Women’s Cross Country Coach of the Year honors in 1996 by leading the squad to the conference title. In his only season as coach of the women’s cross country program, Boyce guided Missouri State to three meet titles and its first MVC cross country championship. Five Bears recorded careerbest times and finished among the top 15 in the conference race. Camille Wise earned All-MVC honors with a sixth-place showing. Boyce has also helped the Missouri State program gain national recognition as the Bears routinely send athletes to the NCAA Championships. Prior to Boyce’s arrival only three MSU track and field athletes had ever qualified for the NCAA Division I

meet. Under Boyce’s direction Missouri State women’s track and field has compiled 42 NCAA regional qualifying performances on the track while MSU athletes have qualified for the NCAA national championships 38 times. Missouri State women’s track and field athletes have also earned NCAA All-America status 16 times, with 14 of those honors coming during Boyce’s tenure. In 1996, Melinda Sallins took fifth at the NCAA meet in the 400-meter hurdles to earn the first All-America honor during the Boyce era. Michelle Baptiste earned a spot on the All-America team in 1997 by taking seventh in the long jump. Boyce’s 4x400-meter relay squad of Juliet Pommells, Verneta Lesforis, Mashere Harrison and Augustina Charles ran 3:36.18 to earn All-America honors during the 1999 indoor season. During the 1999 outdoor season Pommells, Lesforis, Charles along with Trudi Garrett, bettered their mark to 3:33.09 to add four more All-America awards to Boyce’s list. The 2004 outdoor season saw the Bears first All-American come from the distance side of the team. Casey Owens ran 34:53.00 that season to become an All-American in the 10,000-meter run, an honor she earned again in 2005. The 2005 season also saw the emergence of one of the greatest track and field athletes in school history, Tracy Partain. Partain earned All-America honors in the indoor pentathlon that season with a ninth-place finish at the national meet. Partain left her mark on the MSU record book in 2006, as she challenged for the NCAA title before finishing as the national runner-up in the outdoor heptathlon. Boyce has also coached six athletes to the Olympic Games including a pair of Missouri State athletes. Baptiste competed

at the Olympics in 1996 and Lesforis in 2000. Numerous other MSU athletes have competed for their respective countries internationally through the years, including Owens and Partain, who competed for Team USA in 2005 and 2006, respectively. Other Missouri State athletes coached by Boyce have competed internationally. Verneta Lesforis competed in the 200-meter at the 1997 World Championships. Lesforis, along with Baptiste and Charles, competed for their home country of St. Lucia at the 1999 Central America and Carribean Championships. All three won medals at the event and went on to compete in the Pan American Games that year. Boyce’s athletes have gone on to set every sprint and jump national record for St. Lucia. A native of Barbados, Boyce graduated from Murray State University in 1989 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. Before joining the Missouri State staff, Boyce held assistant coaching positions at both Murray State and Tennessee State, coaching four NCAA All-Americans and two 1992 Olympians as a men’s track assistant at Murray State from 1989 to 1991. Boyce helped the Racers to indoor and outdoor Ohio Valley Conference titles in 1990 and 1991. Boyce and his wife, Edith, have one daughter, Nakita, who played softball at Mississippi State University.

Greg Hipp 9th Season Appalachian State, 2002

Track and Field Assistant Coach

Greg Hipp starts his ninth year as an assistant coach for the track and field program, working with the distance group. He recently completed his seventh year as Missouri State’s cross country head coach. Hipp’s runners have accumulated 60 All-MVC honors, 14 MVC individual titles, have been MVC runner-up 14 times and have placed third 16 times. With eight NCAA All-Region and one NCAA All-America track honors, Hipp’s runners have compiled 13 NCAA Regional and nine NCAA National Championship qualifying performances from the 800-meter up to the 10,000-meter. Hipp coached two runners to MVC Championships during the 2010 season. Terry Phillips captured the indoor 3,000-meter run title, while Staci Nelson, who finished third to Phillips at the indoor championships, took top billing in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the outdoor meet. The victory for Nelson was part of her breakout senior season for Hipp and the Bears. She was allMVC both indoor and outdoor, became MSU’s fourth all-time performer in the steeplechase and became an NCAA Qualifier in the event. Nelson also continued the long line of steeplechase success established under Hipp. In 2008, Jamie Vest qualified for the NCAA national championship, placing 26th, while Phillips was the fourth-ranked Junior 4

(19 & Under) steeplechaser in America. During Phillips’ 2009 sophomore season, she became an NCAA National Championship Qualifier herself, placing 20th nationally. The 2008 and 2009 seasons were banner years for Hipp’s middle distance runners, as Asher Kyger broke the outdoor 1,500-meter school record (4:26.20 - 2008) and the indoor mile record (4:48.67 - 2009). Also in 2009, MSU’s distance medley relay team broke the MVC championship and all-time records running 11:24.02, the 18th fastest performance in the nation. In 2005, Hipp guided Casey Owens to one of the finest seasons in MSU history. On top of four league titles, Owens set two MVC all-time records (16:15.00 5,000-meter indoors, 33:32.00 10,000-meter outdoors), three MVC championship meet records and qualified for the NCAA indoor and outdoor championships where she was named to the All-America team. As the top collegiate finisher at the USA Championship, Owens placed ninth in the 10,000-meter (33:32.00), setting MVC and state of Missouri collegiate records. Owens was also named to Team USA for an international road race event in Chiba, Japan. Under Hipp’s guidance, MSU cross country won the 2004 Missouri Valley Conference Cross Country Championship. With runner-up finishes in 2005, 2006, and 2008, Hipp’s cross country teams have finished outside of the MVC’s top two teams only three time; twice with a third-place finish (2007 and 2010) and a fifth-place finish in 2009. Hipp was named MVC Women’s Cross Country Coach of the Year in 2004 after guiding Missouri State to their fourth-straight MVC cross country championship and a fifth-place regional finish. A native of Charlotte, N.C., Hipp came to MSU after one season as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Appalachian State University. During that season his men and women swept the Southern Conference cross country titles, while five earned all-conference honors. Hipp also serves on the cross country committees for both USATF and the USTFCCCA. Hipp has earned his USATF Level II certification. A 2002 graduate of Appalachian State, Hipp earned his master’s degree in education from Missouri State in 2004.

Brent Hobbs Track and Field Assistant Coach

3rd Season Clemson, 2005

Brent Hobbs has made a significant impact on the Bears’ field events in only two seasons on the job. Now entering his third season with the Bears, Hobbs primarily oversees the Bears’ jumpers, throwers, multi-event and pole vault athletes. In 2010, Hobbs coached three all-MVC performers and one of the Bears’ two NCAA Regional Qualifiers in Kimsue Grant. Grant qualified in the triple jump, the event in which she earned all-MVC honors, while etching her name in the Missouri State track and field history books. Her leap of 40-09.50 is the fifth longest at MSU and made her the third best all-time performer. Hobbs also helped Jeláni Kelly become one of the top throwers in Bears’ history with her 2010 performances. Last season, Kelly became a top-five all-time performer in the indoor shot put, the indoor weight throw and the outdoor shot put. Combine those marks with her achievements from 2009, and Kelly is a top-five all-time performer in five events in her two seasons working with Hobbs. He had a very impressive inaugural season with the Bears in 2008. Hobbs helped Kelly to become MSU’s first-ever NCAA Regional Qualifier, as well as its first-ever USA Junior National Qualifier, in the throws. He also Mareneika Goffe become an MVC outdoor champion and NCAA Regional Qualifier in the high jump. Under his direction, the Bears had two top-three high jump finishers at the MVC Championship for the first time in school history, as well as the second-ever MSU high jumper at the NCAA Regional meet. Hobbs came to Springfield from Western Carolina University where he served as an assistant coach working with the shot put, weight, discus, hammer, jump and multi- events. His highly successful two-year stint with the Catamounts saw his athletes earn 26 all-Southern Conference honors, including five conference individual titles and three NCAA Regional Qualifiers. Hobbs is no stranger to team success as Western Carolina’s program took team titles four times; two for men and two for women, during his time in Cullowhee. Included among that team success was Western’s sweep of the conference’s men’s

and women’s indoor team titles in 2008. As an athlete, Hobbs attended Clemson University where he was a standout on the Tiger Track & Field team. A seven-time All-ACC performer, three-time NCAA qualifier in the decathlon, three-time NCAA qualifier in the heptathlon, two-time NCAA regional qualifier in the 110 hurdles and All-American honors in the heptathlon top his major accomplishments. He was also a Nike All-American while attending Don Bosco Prep. A native of Stony Point, N.Y., Hobbs earned his bachelor’s degree in elementary education with a minor in athletic leadership from Clemson. He also completed his master’s in health and human performance at Western Carolina.

2010-11 Track and Field Season Outlook The track and field Bears aim to spend the 2010-11 season reclaiming their usual position in the top half of the Missouri Valley Conference, a conference the Bears have won eight times in 14 seasons under Director of Track and Field and Cross Country Ronald Boyce. The five indoor and three outdoor titles have established Missouri State as a premier program both in the MVC and in the Midwest. Now it is up to a new group of track and field athletes to live up to that prestige and bring the Bears back into the upper echelon of The Valley. Youth will lead the way for the 201011 Bears, with 22 newcomers entering the fold to join the 16 returners. A squad that features only nine returning letterwinners will have to rely heavily on one of the largest recruiting classes ever to enter Missouri State. But for Boyce and company, this may be one recruiting class that can hold up to the pressure. The 22 newcomers include 11 all-state honorees, five state champions and an all-American. With so much talent, Boyce is excited to lead the way for this new class of Bears. “The newcomers are not really sure what to do, so from day to day you get different leadership and different attitudes,” Boyce said. “Coaching becomes very important. They keep us busy. But it is exciting because we can mold them how we want to mold them. The competition is there and being so even across the board, anyone can step up on any given day and that will lead to some pretty special performances.” The fresh blood will have key veterans to show the way including three NCAA Regional Qualifiers, an NCAA National Championships Qualifier and three allMVC performers. Not to mention one of the top distance runners in the region returning from injury to reclaim her position among the Valley’s elite. It will be a season of growth and the Bears will see how their talented group translates to Division I track and field. SPRINTS The majority of the youth will be in the sprint group. Of the 10 primary sprinters, eight are newcomers and one of the returners competed only during the 2010 outdoor season. The lone veteran, and one of four seniors on the squad, is Shantel Llewellyn, a three-time letterwinner. With so many newcomers comes competition, which Boyce thinks will improve the group. 6

“The sprint group is exciting. It is exciting because it is new and because we have some talent; and the talent is spread out across the board,” Boyce said. “We have picked up some really good kids and we have a nucleus of individuals who will move pretty well and put us in good positions.” Reaux Daughtery, Alyx Dull, Millie Fulton, Kiesha Hayes, Pernell Joseph and Sydney Peavy are the seven freshmen in the group. Fellow newcomer Kara-Aretha Graham will be a senior after transferring from Iowa. Returner Ariel Butzine showed promise in 2010 as she closed the outdoor season at the MVC Championships with a fifth-place, 2:12.58 minute finish in her specialty, the 800-meter dash. It was an MSU season best and showed All-MVC Performer why big things are expected of her in Cheyenne Stewart 2011. Llewellyn will be a key veteran for the Bears. In 2010, she became a force ver will look to build on an impressive in the 100-meter dash, never finishing freshman year. Her versatility may be outside of the top seven during her her biggest strength as she competed in six meets of the outdoor season.

She is really going to make a difference on and off the track.” Phillips and her fellow distance run-

ners will be counted on to push the Bears back into the top-half of The Valley. “We have some freshmen in our middle group who are trying to figure it out. They will be led by the individuals up top,” Boyce said. “The distance did well, finishing third at the conference meet, and that will transition them well. I think that group is going to help us a lot as far as where we want to go, what we want to do.”

right behind her is Cheyenne Stewart who has done exceptionally well.” Grant qualified, and earned all-MVC indoor distinction, in the triple jump but is also dangerous in the long jump. Stewart does her best work in the high jump, but will compete in all the jump events. Fellow sophomores Jordan Bond and Scarlett McCall also look to take the next step. Bond is a versatile jumper, while McCall is the team’s number two thrower behind Kelly. Kelly is the main veteran and one of only two juniors in the group, with Kelsey McCowen being the other. With no seniors in the group, the St. Louis, Mo., will be counted on to guide the underclassmen. She was a 2009 NCAA Regional Qualifier in the discus, but is also dangerous in the weight throw and shot put. “Jelani Kelly is doing tremendously well so far and we expect big things from her,” Boyce said. Keeping with the theme of the team, a big freshmen class will see immediate action in the field events. Jessica Dantin, Meagen Good, Ahshane Johnson, Andrea Locke, Katie Mulloy and Gemma Smith are all new to the program. Johnson, Locke and Smith have the potential to be forces in the jumps. Katelynn Geier is a redshirt freshman who will add depth to the throws. “We have picked up some talented jumpers and added some good depth to our field group,” Boyce said. SCHEDULE The Bears will have a jam-packed schedule in 2010-11, with its earliest start since the 2005-06 campaign. MSU kicks off with the Bob Timmons Challenge Meet on Dec. 4. Even with the month-long break that follows, Boyce sees benefit in the early start. “We hope it will add a sense of motivation where we can focus all the way through the entire fall,” Boyce said. “The fall is really tricky because usually we do not have a competition to look forward to. But now since we have one in December, then we can get excited and it will help us to stay focused.” After the haitus, the Bears will run in the Missouri Invitational (Jan. 7). The Saluki Open (Jan. 14-15) and Indiana Relays (Jan. 28-29) follow and close out January competition. February meets begin with the Tyson Invitational (11-12), which will serve as the final tune up before the Missouri Val8

Terryy Phillips p in the 3,,000-meter steepl p echase ley Conference Championships. UNI will host the MVC Championships Feb. 26-27 in Cedar Falls, Iowa. The Bears look to improve on their fifth-place showing last season with returners Terry Phillips and Kimsue Grant leading the way. Phillips won the 3,000-meter as last season’s Championships, while Grant took third in the triple jump. The Notre Dame Alex Wilson Invitational (March 4-5) and the Iowa State Last Chance (March 5) will close the indoor regular season. Potential NCAA National Championships qualifiers will compete in hopes of earning a bid to the national meet March 11-12 in Fayetteville, Ark. The outdoor season starts off with the SIU Spring Classic and the Stanford Invitational, both running March 25-26. April brings some familiar road trips for the Bears as they visit the campuses of Arkansas (Razorback Spring Invitational, April 1), Missouri (Tom Botts Invitational April 8-9), Kansas (Kansas Relays April 20-23) and Drake (Drake Relays April 28-30). It will be the 102nd running of the prestigious Drake Relays. That same weekend MSU will compete in the Kip Janvrin Open in Indianola, Iowa, on the campus of Simpson College. The Arkansas Twilight (May 6) closes 2010-11 Track and Field Guide

the outdoor regular season. The MVC Outdoor Championships will once again run in Cedar Falls, Iowa, May 13-15. The Bears finished sixth at the meet last season, with 2010-11 returner Cheyenne Stewart earning All-Missouri Valley Conference honors in the high jump. The NCAA West Preliminary Round will run May 26-28. Grant is the only returning qualifier from 2010 after she earned a spot last season with her triple jump performance. For any Bears that may advance, the NCAA Championships will be held in Des Moines, Iowa on the campus of Drake University. They are set for June 8-11. While the schedule offers a diverse set of challenges, the marquee events will be the MVC Championships. And after a pair of uncharacteristic showings in 2010, Boyce’s Bears feel they are in the hunt in 2011. “We have done so far what we need to do,” Boyce said “We have recruited well, and we now have people in position who understand their role very well. The coaches know where we need to be and now it is a matter of execution. If they can settle down and maintain focus, I think the chips will fall into place. But we know what we need to do: it is now a matter of time and execution.”

2010 Missouri State Bears Season Review The 2010 track and field season was one that featured the emergence of several freshmen, the consistency of some upperclassmen and the breakout of a senior. And although the season did not produce the Missouri Valley Conference finishes that many have come to expect from the Missouri State program, it did forecast a bright future for Director of Track and Field/Cross Country Ronald Boyce. The Bears’ season began with 11 topfive finishes, including Mareneika Goffe’s high jump win, at the Jan. 8 Missouri Invitational. Goffe leapt 5-06.50, just shy of her personal best. Freshmen Kimsue Grant and Jordan Bond combined to finish four-five in the triple jump, the firsts of many top-five finishes for the freshman class. Next up for the squad was the Eastern Illinois University Mega-Meet, Jan. 23, where the Bears came up huge. Boyce’s group had nine wins and 25 top-five finishes in only 15 events. Terry Phillips finished where she is most comfortable: atop the leaderboard. She won the mile run (4:55.41) and the 3,000-meter run (10:00.48) in dominant fashion. Freshman Maggie Sutor’s 800-meter run win (2:18.13) and Stephanie Harres’ 5,000-meter (18:32.01) top billing combined with Phillips to ensure the Bears won every distance event at the meet. Jodiann Walker won the 60-meter dash, running a personal best 7.74. And after Rashida Allen (200m), Mareneika Goffe (high jump), the 4x400-meter relay and the distance medley relay teams walked away with event wins, it was off to the Indiana Relays.

Bloomington brought more of the same for the Bears: wins by Mareneika Goffe and Sutor. Goffe won her third straight high jump event, while Sutor won her second straight 800-meter run with a personal best 2:17.43 time. Personal bests were turned in by newcomers Cheyenne Stewart (high jump: 17-00.00) and Bond (triple jump: 38-04.25) as well as Kelly (shot put: 45-10.50). Bond took fourth place while Kelly was the runner up in the event. Perhaps the story of the meet was the burgeoning breakout of senior Staci Nelson. Nelson notched her second topfive finish in as many weeks, this one coming in the 3,000-meter run where she finished fifth at 10:01.70. She had finished second in the mile the week before. The final rehearsal before the MVC Indoor Championships came two weeks later at the Iowa State Classic. Facing a talented field, the Bears notched two event wins courtesy of Zaleika Goffe and Phillips. Goffe won the unseeded high jump with a personal best 5-06.00 height. Phillips again won the 3,000meter run, setting a new personal best at 9:35.79. Kimsue Grant also set a personal best 39-04.00 in the triple jump, earning a fifth-place spot. A week later, it was championship time. Despite the efforts of All-MVC performers Walker, Phillips, Nelson, Goffe and Grant, the Bears finished fifth. It was only the fourth time in 14 years under head coach Ronald Boyce that the Bears finished outside of the top three. It was quite the weekend for Walker, though. After finishing second in the

Kimsue Grant was an NCAA Regional Qualifier and All-MVC Indoor in the triple jump 36

2010-11 Track and Field Guide

60-meter prelims with Missouri State’s second-fastest time ever, 7.51, she won Sunday’s final in 7.54, which was good for the fifth-fastest time in school history. Phillips won the 3,000-meter run with a personal best 9:35.40, her third-straight meet with a personal best. Nelson placed third behind Phillips, setting a new personal best (9:42.83) by nearly 20 seconds. The duo, now Missouri State’s third and fourth all-time performers in the event, combined for 16 of the Bears’ 20 day-one points (Phillips 10, Nelson 6). Goffe and Grant earned all-conference distinction for finishing second in the high jump and third in the triple jump, respectively. Wichita State took home the team championship, narrowly upsetting the defending champion Southern Illinois Salukis, 151.5 to 145.5. Indiana State and Illinois State finished three-four, while the Bears’ 69 points were good enough to edge Drake, UNI and Bradley. The championship put a cap on the indoor season. Unfortunately for the Bears, Phillips suffered an injury during the meet and would miss the outdoor season. Turns out the injury was the only thing that could stop Phillips in 2010. The Kansas City, Mo., native competed five times during the indoor season, winning all but one of her outings. The only event she did not win, the 3,000m at the Indiana Relays, she finished second and set a personal best. Despite only competing in the indoor season, she still was named an MVC Scholar-Athlete and to the ESPN The Magazine Academic AllDistrict VII and All-American teams. The outdoor season opened March 27 at the Razorback Spring Invitational. It may have been spring, but no one told the weather. On a day of low temperatures, steady rain and heavy wind, the Bears earned eight top-five finishes, with Stewart capturing the only event win (high jump). Kelly topped her previous personal best in the shot put by nearly four feet (44-04.00) on her way to a second-place finish. The mark made her the fifth-all-time shot put performer at MSU. Nelson also had a personal best, with her’s coming in the 1,500-meter run (4:37.69). Seniors Staci Nelson and Shantel Llewellyn led the way at the Ole Miss Invitational, April 10. Nelson continued her breakout season when she made her 2010 steeplechase debut in style. She took home first, running a 10:44.30 and winning by more than 11 seconds. It was a 27-second improvement over her previous personal best and established her as the top MVC steeplechaser early in the outdoor season.


2010 Missouri State Bears Season Review

Staci Nelson on the podium after her steeplechase MVC Championship Running the 200-meter dash in a field of 79, Llewellyn finished fifth at 24.65. Her time tied teammate Rashida Allen’s from the Razorback Spring Invitational atop The Valley event leaderboard. She also ran the 100-meter dash in 12.16 on her way to a seventh-place finish. It marked the third-straight week she finished in the event’s top seven. While the majority of the Bears took a two-week break, for Nelson the 101st running of the prestigious Drake Relays beckoned, and she did not disappoint. She became Missouri State’s fourth alltime performer in the 3,000-meter steeplechase with her 10:35.43, moving up the Bears’ performers list. Her time at the relays would later earn her a bid to the NCAA West Preliminary Round as one of only two Bear regional qualifiers. The hiatus helped the Bears to perhaps their strongest showing April 24 at the Redbird Spring Invitational. They tallied four event wins and 15 top-five finishes. The Bears received wins from Kimsue Grant in the long jump (18-02.50) and triple jump (40-09.50), Llewellyn in the 100-meter dash (12.20) and Allen in the 100-meter hurdles (14.46), who also finished second in the 200-meter dash (25.27). Grant’s first two career wins continued a strong freshman season. In addition to earning the wins in Normal, she also earned a place in Bear history as her triple jump mark is now the fifthlongest jump ever at Missouri State. The 40-09.50 mark would later guarantee her a trip to the NCAA West Preliminary

Round to join Nelson as the Bears’ only postseason participants. The final tune-up before the MVC Outdoor Championships took place a week later at the Arkansas Twilight. Just as was the case at the Ole Miss meet, Nelson and Llewellyn were the featured attractions. Nelson finished fifth in the 1,500-meter run with a time of 4:29.73, a personal best by nearly eight seconds. Llewellyn finished seventh in the 100meter dash. She became a force in the 100m, never finishing outside of the top seven in the outdoor season. Her 12.09 time was a personal best and it also ended the season as the top time of any Bear in 2010. Much like the indoor conference meet, the Bears could not get over the hump and onto the podium at the MVC Outdoor Championships. Boyce’s squad finished sixth and out of the top four for only the second time in his 14 outdoor seasons. In her last MVC meet, Nelson came away with a 3,000-meter steeplechase championship with a 10:41.96 finish. The allMVC indoor performer had held the top MVC steeplechase time for almost all the outdoor season, along the way establishing herself as one of the top steeplechasers in Missouri State history. Stewart was the Bears’ other competitor to earn all-MVC recognition. Her personal best of 5-05.25 placed her third as she narrowly missed out on the top spot. Nelson and Grant would advance to the NCAA West Preliminary Round in Austin, Texas. Nelson competed in the 3,000-meter steeplechase while Grant www.missouristatebears.com

was a triple jump qualifier. Nelson took 23rd with a time of 10:45.16, and Grant leapt 39-03.00 for 37th place. Neither marks were good enough to advance to the NCAA Championships, ending the duo’s, and the Bears’, season. Even though the season ended, the awards continued to roll in. In addition to the all-conference members named during the season, five athletes were named MVC Scholar Athletes: Stephanie Harres, Yaneika Malcolm, Staci Nelson, Terry Phillips and Jodiann Walker. It was the fourth straight year Malcolm was honored, while Nelson and Phillips became two-time recipients. It was the first such honor for Harres and Walker. Nelson ended her breakout senior season with a spot on the USTFCCCA AllAcademic Team, and she joined Phillips on the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District VII team. She leaves as the fourth all-time performer in both the 1,500m (4:29.73) and the 3,000m steeplechase (10:35.43) in Missouri State history. Joining Nelson in the record books was Emily Beaver, a member of the emerging freshmen class. Beaver is now the fifth all-time performer in both the 5,000m (17:12.51) and the 10,000m (36:12.12) runs. The 2010 season did not produce the MVC Championships results many Bear fans have come to expect, but the 2011 edition will feature a slew of returners including nine letterwinners, four NCAA Regional Qualifiers and three all-MVC performers.

MVC All-Centennial Team

I

n 2006-07, the Missouri Valley Conference celebrated a century of excellence as the nation’s second-oldest NCAA Division I conference. As a part of the Centennial Celebration, The Valley named all-centennial teams for each of its sponsored sports, including cross country and track and field. Track and Field holds the ultimate Centennial Celebration distinction as the very first athletic event ever contested in the Missouri Valley Conference, holding the first league championship in May of 1907. A total of 18 former Bears were honored on the MVC Cross Country and Track and Field All-Centennial Teams, while head coach Ronald Boyce was one of 11 Valley coaches recognized as the conference’s greatest track and field coaches. The squad was determined through an on-line fan vote and by a centennial committee.

Missouri State Track and Field / Cross Country Run for 100! During the fall of 2010, MSU track and field and cross country called on those who support their program and the student-athletes to join them in their “Run for 100.” On Sunday, December 5th, 2010 at MSU’s Plaster Sports Complex the student-athletes, coaches and administrators of MSU track and field and cross country gathered to collectively run each sponsored mile. Thanks to the efforts of those Bear supporters both in the community and throughout the country, the program was able to meet its goal of 100 sponsored miles and $5,000 raised for the MSU track and field and cross country program. The program is grateful for the dedication the following donors have shown the program and would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their support.

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.

2010-11 Track and Field Guide


This is the Missouri Valley Conference 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 revenue-generating vehicle and The Valley’s most visible marketing tool. Meanwhile, The Valley is making videostreaming a major focus as it enters the second year of a three-year plan to upgrade the production and marketing of both institutionallyproduced 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 10-year 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 190785), 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 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. These 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 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, Valley student-athletes and coaches have become household names during the league’s illustrious history over the years, 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 national-caliber 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.

Moats Director of Athletics Second Year at Missouri State

Missouri State University’s search for its new director of athletics concluded May 28, 2009, with the introduction of Kyle Moats as the University’s 10th A.D. Moats came to the University after serving as associate athletics director for national marketing at the University of Louisville since 2005.  Moats began his duties at Missouri State in July 2009, replacing Bill Rowe, who retired after spending 27 years as Missouri State’s top athletics administrator and more than a half century at the university as a student, coach and administrator.  In a busy first year on the job, Moats wasted little time in laying groundwork for the future of Missouri State Athletics. 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.
