2012 Missouri State Season Outlook

Bears Set Sights on Wide Open Missouri Valley Conference With seven NCAA Tournament appearances in the last decade and 13 consecutive 20-win seasons, the goals Head Coach Melissa Stokes has in her 17th season are simple: win the Missouri Valley Conference and play in the NCAA Tournament. That goal is once again within reach for the 2012 Bears, who are picked to finish second in the league race and have a wide array of talent and options on the roster.

Versatility

on

Offense

The Bears have a stockpile of offensive talent to use in 2012, including three players with a conference freshman of the year honor in their career. This glut of talent makes absorbing the loss of Calli Norman and Kelley Michnowicz much easier than it might seem to the outside observer. “I feel like we’re adding three hitters with Andrea Beaty’s transfer, Kayln (Vlasin) coming off redshirt and Christine (McCartney) playing better than her freshman season,” Stokes said with a smile. “(Kaitlin) Jaeger and Beaty are our most versatile attackers in the preseason, hitting every shot and making for a really fun, unpredictable offense.” Christine McCartney (Arlington, Texas) is one of those three freshman winners, taking home the MVC’s top rookie honor in 2010, and is back in form after a slow sophomore campaign. The athletic outside hitter has 559 kills in two seasons as a Bear with a 2.96 per set average that will rank ninth in MSU history when she meets the minimum 200 sets played. Andrea Beaty (Pacific, Mo.) was the Atlantic 10’s top freshman in 2010, and piled up 699 kills, 183 blocks and a .227 hitting percentage in two seasons at Saint Louis before coming to Missouri State in January 2012. Olivia Brand (Springfield, Mo.) is the reigning MVC Freshman of the Year and rounds out the aforementioned trio. Her 22 kills against Illinois State last year jump-started her MVC season when she averaged 3.09 kills per set in league matches.

McCartney’s high school teammate Amber Doolittle ( A r l i n g t o n , Te x a s ) continues to make strides in her third year in the program and averaged 1.78 kills and 0.70 blocks in 87 sets played last season that included 20 match starts. At 6-foot-2, Doolittle is one of seven Bears that top the 6-foot mark. Kaitlin Jaeger (Webb City, Mo.) is coming off an MVC all-Freshman season that saw her average 2.21 kills and 0.56 blocks per set with a .294 hitting percentage in league matches while playing multiple positions. Kayln Vlasin (Neosho, Mo.) is another member of the class that included Brand and Jaeger, but a leg injury forced her to miss the 2011 season, and the Carly Thomas was a first-team all-MVC pick in 2011 Bears are thrilled to have her healthy. Vlasin brings injury issues from the offseason carry great blocking instincts and is a solid into 2012.

Adding an exceptional serve to the setting group is sophomore MaryJo Kolze (Tempe, Ariz.), whose skills at the service line will likely be put to use situationally with the advent of the NCAA rule increasing substitutions from 12 to 15 per set.

that not only set the Bears up for MVC play, but also increase the team’s standing for postseason consideration. “You have to play top-50 RPI teams, and you have to get some significant wins early in the season,” Stokes said of her scheduling formula that has helped MSU earn five at-large NCAA bids in the past decade. “We’re set up to do that with our opening tournament, as well as the trip to Kansas State and home matches with Dayton and Northern Illinois.” The league should once again be strong at the top, with all three 2011 NCAA teams returning a strong core group, including the Bears. “The great thing about the strength of The Valley is that we get multiple chances in conference play to face top50 and top-100 opponents,” Stokes added. “That said, you gotta win.” In total, MSU’s 2012 opponents went 370-289 (.561) a season ago, with eight of the 21 teams boasting an RPI of 44 or better and 10 finishing amongst the top 87. The Bears will play 13 total matches against those top-87 teams and 16 matches against schools with a winning record last season.

Dynamic Defense

Always a calling card of Stokes’teams, Missouri State’s defense has a chance to be especially strong in 2012 thanks to some veteran presence. “I really fell like we have two liberos,” Stokes said of her top defensive specialists. “Ashley (Mason) and Shelby (Strang) both play at a really high level, and I’m very happy with that. Not only that, but our whole team is very athletic, scrappy and fast, and that versatility is what can separate us from the pack.” Junior Ashley Mason (Granby, Mo.) spent some of her offseason with the U.S. Women’s National A2 Program, and was Missouri State’s full-time libero in 2011. As a sophomore, Mason’s totals of 523 digs and 4.71 per set ranked fifth and fourth, respectively, in school history. Shelby Strang (Champaign, Ill.) begins her senior season as MSU’s active leader with 620 digs, including 290 in 2011 for a 2.61 per set average. Strang played in every set last season, and proved a dependable server with just six errors all season against 17 aces.

(Smithton, Ill.) improved with each match in 2011 and will be a three-rotation contributor for MSU in the back row. Hogan scooped seven digs in last season’s NCAA Tournament match at Pepperdine. Adding to the depth on defense is yet another Springfield native, freshman Elise Munroe from Glendale High. An athletic, multi-dimensional player in high school, Munroe’s great serve and ability to attack from the back row give the Bears even more options to take advantage of the 15-sub rule.

Head Coach Melissa Stokes 17th year San Diego State (1991)

Now entering her 17th season as head coach at Missouri State, Melissa Stokes has posted a 357-164 record (.685 winning percentage) and is the Missouri Valley Conference’s all-time winningest coach in league matches with 208 MVC victories.

M

48

issouri 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 developing 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 multi-year television contract with KY3, Inc.   Year two for Moats in Springfield saw Missouri State finish second in the 2010-11 MVC All-Sports Trophy standings--its best finish in five years. Conference titles by men’s basketball, women’s swimming and softball, as well as postseason tournament berths for both MSU basketball programs highighted the Bears’ year. In 2011-12, Moats’ third year at the helm, Missouri State enjoyed its finest campaign in nearly a decade, capturing the Missouri Valley Conference AllSports Trophy for just the fourth time. The Bears won Valley titles in women’s swimming and diving, women’s indoor track and field, women’s basketball and women’s golf this year along with a co-championship in men’s soccer. Additionally, four MSU teams advanced to postseason play, including NCAA Tournament appearances for the Bears’ volleyball, women’s golf and baseball programs. 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 he 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).   A native of Dixon, Ill., Moats is a 1988 graduate of Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville with a bachelor’s degree in physical education. Moats was a three-year letterwinner in golf and a student assistant basketball coach for the Cougars from 1985-88. 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.

Missouri Valley Conference From early beginnings to its current standing on the map of college athletics, the Missouri Valley Conference continues to be proactive as The Valley enters its 106th season of athletic competition in 2012-13. 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. In what has become a wild, unpredictable climate in collegiate athletics, the Missouri Valley Conference has remained strong and stable. Notably, 19 of the nation’s 31 Division I conferences have new membership for this season, and all but five of those conferences have undergone a transformation in membership since 2000. Notably, the Missouri Valley Conference’s current 10-member composition has remained the same since 1996 – and only two leagues (Ivy, Patriot) can match that continuity. League members have worked together to focus on common goals and objectives, putting a high value on league harmony while continuing to invest in athletic programs to compete at the highest level. The Valley brand remains very strong, both regionally and nationally, and the great athletic tradition of The Valley remains a compelling force in recruiting student-athletes and in marketing all the MVC programs. 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. The MVC Tournament continues to be a Bradley spectacular showcase for the league, and the MVC has extended the Peoria, Illinois tournament agreement with the Scottrade Center that will keep Arch Madness in St. Louis through at least 2015. During the 2011 MVC Creighton Championship, the league surpassed 1 million in total attendance for Omaha, Nebraska the event, now in its 23rd year. Drake While the success of men’s basketball has received the greatest Des Moines, Iowa attention, the overall performance of league teams in virtually every sport continues to raise the national profile of the conference. Evansville In volleyball, UNI, Missouri State and Wichita State represented Evansville, Indiana the league in the NCAA Tournament. It marked the sixth-straight season that multiple MVC teams were invited to the dance. UNI Illinois State entered the NCAA Tournament with a 23-match win streak and advanced Normal, Illinois to the second round before falling to Florida. Notably, UNI has now won 61-straight matches against Missouri Valley Conference Indiana State competition. Terre Haute, Indiana Meanwhile, the success of The Valley television package is one of the great stories in the league. The MVC Television Network has Missouri State blossomed into a revenue-generating vehicle and The Valley’s most Springfield, Missouri visible marketing tool. Also, The Valley is making video-streaming UNI a major focus as it enters the third year of a three-year plan to upgrade Cedar Falls, Iowa the production and marketing of both institutionally-produced and conference-produced webcasts. Southern Illinois In 2010, The Valley took a major step toward ensuring current Carbondale, Illinois revenues in television media and tournament sponsorship sales would be guaranteed in future years when it announced a 10-year partnership Wichita State with Learfield Sports. The Jefferson City, Missouri-based company Wichita, Kansas 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 league will host an NCAA second- and third-round men’s basketball event in Kansas City in 2013 and assisted Creighton with preliminary round men’s events in both 2008 and 2012. The seeds for this vision 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. League members include Bradley, Creighton, Drake, Evansville, Illinois State, Indiana State, Missouri State, Northern Iowa, Southern Illinois, and Wichita State. Central Arkansas and Southern Illinois-Edwardsville are affiliate members in men’s soccer.

John Q. Hammons Student Center   The Missouri State Bear volleyball team plays its home matches in spacious John Q. Hammons Student Center, the home of Missouri State volleyball since the start of the 1976-77 school year.   The largest indoor facility in southwest Missouri, Hammons has a main arena seating capacity of 8,846. There are 4,646 permanent seats and folding bleacher units on the north and south ends each seat 2,100 fans.   Hammons Student Center was constructed at a cost of $5.5 million and was named for Springfield business executive and former Missouri State student John Q. Hammons, who donated a gift of one million dollars to the project.   The facility grew out of a lengthy project begun by Missouri State students in the early 1970s, with actual construction beginning in January of 1975. The structure, completed in the late summer of 1976, is located on the northwest edge of the Missouri State campus. The land for the building was made available to the University in 1972 by the Springfield Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority.   An additional $326,000 of the total cost came in a grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development for the facility’s eight-lane swimming pool. Parking is located south of the building.   The court in the main arena, two more full-size courts in the east and west gyms under the side seats, and two smaller courts under the bleacher units on the north and south ends are marked for basketball, volleyball and tennis. In 1985, Missouri State acquired a hardwood floor, which is laid over the permanent floor for volleyball and basketball competition.   The office space in women’s athletics was doubled in the fall of 1993, and the volleyball locker room was remodeled following the 2005 season, thanks to lead gifts by Chip McGeehan of Marshfield. Several others

have made significant gifts to benefit the locker room projects, including Jim and Joan Cologna.   The Missouri State volleyball and softball teams had shared a locker room since the opening of Hammons Student Center in 1976 and each now has its own space with the completion of the two projects. The new locker rooms each include 20 wooden lockers, a team meeting area, a trophy case, sinks, toilets and individual showers.   The Colognas are longtime supporters of Missouri State volleyball and pledged a significant gift toward the volleyball locker room. The trophy case is named in their honor. Recent improvements in the main arena of Hammons Student Center include a new sound system, a scoreboard with an electronic message center and improved lighting.   The swimming pool is equipped for use at either 25 yards or 25 meters and has both one and three-meter diving boards. Hammons Student Center also houses a rifle range, a training room and six racquetball courts.   Hammons contains athletic and building administration offices as well as offices for many coaches, a lounge area, large varsity locker rooms and locker rooms for visiting teams and recreational use.   Performers who have made appearances in Hammons include Bob Hope, Anne Murray, Huey Lewis and the News, Tina Turner, Elvis Presley, Barbara Mandrell, Barry Manilow, Genesis, Bill Cosby, Dolly Parton, the Harlem Globetrotters, George Carlin, Garth Brooks, John McEnroe, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Amy Grant, Alabama, James Taylor, 98 Degrees and the Dixie Chicks. There have also been appearances in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan, in 1988 by Vice President George Bush and in 2002 by President George W. Bush.

The lounge area and trophy case in the MSU volleyball locker room, which was remodeled in 2005 thanks to lead gifts by Chip McGeehan of Marshfield. The trophy case is named in honor of Jim and Joan Cologna for their gift benefitting the locker room project.

The Jim D. Morris Family Strength and Conditioning Center sits adjacent to the Turner Family Practice Court gives the Bears a dedicated cardiovascular and weight facility inside Hammons Student Center.

Wooden lockers in the volleyball locker room were introduced after the remodel in 2005. ttt

The Turner Family Practice Court was completed in 2006, helping ease the practice schedule of the volleyball Bears and both basketball programs. The east gym underwent extensive renovations, including the installation of new lighting, wall covering, and the addition of the hardwood floor that was in use in HSC’s main arena from 1985 until February 2006. uuu

FINAL FOUR: The KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Ky., is the host site for the NCAA Division I championship. The national semifinals are slated for Thursday, Dec. 13, with the title match on Saturday, Dec. 15. A year ago, UCLA beat Florida State in the semifinals and Illinois in the finals to claim the national title. MISSOURI STATE IN THE NCAA: The Bears have appeared in the NCAA Tournament 10 times. The Bears earned an at-large berth in 1982 and lost in four games at Texas in the first round. In 1990, Missouri State won the Gateway automatic bid and fell in three games at Hawaii. In 1993, the Bears collected the MVC automatic berth and lost in three games to Illinois. In 2003, the Bears returned to the Tournament but lost in four to Arkansas at Manhattan, Kan. In 2005, the Bears won the MVC Tournament to clinch the automatic berth, falling at Missouri in the first round. In 2006, the Bears broke through with the program’s first NCAA win, defeating Arkansas 3-1 in the first round before falling 3-0 to Oklahoma. MSU made it three in a row in 2007, losing to Oregon in the first round as one of a record four MVC teams included in the field. In 2008, Missouri State fell to UAB in the first round, while the Bears fell to another Alabama school, Auburn, in 2010 as the MVC matched its 2007 record of four bids. The Bears fell to 15th-seeded Pepperdine in the 2011 first round. The current MVC membership has an 21-46 mark in NCAA volleyball competition after Missouri State, UNI and Wichita State qualified last year.

2011 Missouri State Season Review

Bears Surprise MVC With 2nd-Place Finish, NCAA Trip Missouri State hits 20 wins for 13th straight year The Missouri State volleyball team followed a familiar pattern in 2011: 20 wins and an NCAA Tournament appearance. With a relatively young squad on the floor and a predicted fourth-place finish in the Missouri Valley Conference preseason poll, the Bears surprised the conference with a 15-3 league mark to finish two games clear of third place, and played their familiar challenging non-conference schedule to position themselves for a seventh NCAA bid since 2003. The Bears posted a final record of 22-9 for a 13th consecutive 20-win season, the seventh-longest active streak in the Division I ranks.

Resume-Building Non-Conference

Missouri State played its customary challening non-conference schedule, beginning with a trip to the Oklahoma Nike Invitational. The Bears opened with a 3-1 win over eventual 20-match winner Oral Roberts (Aug. 26) behind 18 kills from Christine McCartney, and followed with a convincing sweep of SMU the next morning to set up a championship showdown with 16th-ranked Oklahoma. The Sooners prevailed in four sets, though Ashley Mason scooped 25 digs on the way to her first of two MVC Defensive Player of the Week awards for the season. Missouri State headed west Sept. 2 and 3, breezing to 3-0 victories over UC Riverside and Northeastern before the tournament’s marquee match-up with No. 20 San Diego. The powerful Toreros hit .320 against the Bears, the highest mark for an MSU opponent on the year, in a 3-0 win.

Calli Norman was a four-time first-team all-MVC selection

Missouri State opened the home season the next week with the annual Dr. Mary Jo Wynn Invitational, beginning with a 3-2 setback at the hands of a Kansas State team that made the NCAA Round of 16 in 2011. Karen Rivatto had 17 kills and 17 digs for the Bears, who could not overcome KSU’s Kaitlynn Pelger, who closed the match with a kill and two blocks after a 12-12 tie in the fifth to finish with 26 kills and 14 stuffs. The Bears rolled through the next three matches of the tournament, beating Arkansas State 3-1 before sweeping both Hofstra and South Dakota State on Sept. 10 to move to 7-3 on the year. Missouri State’s remaining non-conference match was a 3-1 loss at Stephen F. Austin on Sept. 25, the team’s only setback of the season against a squad that missed the NCAA Tournament.

Best MVC Record Since 2005

The Bears made it through the MVC season with a 15-3 record, avoiding any “bad losses” with all three setbacks coming at the hands of NCAA-bound teams. The conference schedule began with anything but an easy match as the Bears found themselves trailing Illinois State 2-0 at home in the Sept. 16 opener before freshman Olivia Brand took over. Coach Stokes inserted Brand into the lineup midway through the second set and the Springfield native exploded for 22 kills, the most for an MSU rookie since 1994, and the most by a Bear in 2011, helping Missouri State rally for a 15-8 win in the fifth set. Brand would earn her first of three Valley Freshman of the Week awards for her performance. Indiana State provided much less resistance the next night as the Bears prevailed 3-0, and a trip to Wichita awaited Sept. 23 for an early-season showdown. The Bears surprised the Shockers with a 25-23, 25-21, 26-24 sweep of WSU to move to 3-0 in the league as Carly Thomas had seven kills, 37 assists and 15 digs for MVC Player of the Week honors. Missouri State stayed on the road the next weekend to earn a 3-1 win at Bradley on the final

day of September. Fourteenth-ranked UNI awaited Oct. 1 and looked every bit the part by beating the Bears 3-0 in MSU’s only road loss of the conference season. The Bears rattled off four consecutive wins following the UNI match, handing Creighton and Drake losses at Hammons Student Center with Brand, Mason and Thomas sweeping the weekly MVC awards. Road wins at Southern Illinois and Evansville followed, with Rivatto pounding 20 kills in a 3-1 win over UE on Oct. 15 to help the Bears close the first trip through the league schedule with an 8-1 record. Wichita State exacted revenge by beating the Bears 3-1 on Oct. 21, and No. 12 UNI visited Springfield a week later for what turned into an instant classic. Missouri State took the first two sets from the Panthers to put UNI’s 51-match MVC winning streak in jeopardy. The Bears won the first two points of the fifth set but a 3-0 UNI run made it 10-6 in favor of the Panthers as the Bears got no closer than 14-12. That loss proved to be MSU’s last until the conference tournament as the Bears ripped off a season-best seven-match streak to end conference play. That streak began with a home sweep of Bradley behind 16 kills and 14 digs from Rivatto, and continued when the Bears returned to Drake and Creighton Nov. 4 and 5 and earned a pair of 3-1 wins. Thomas grabbed her third weekly league

honor after putting together the 11th and 12th 50-assist, 20-dig matches in school history, while Kaitlin Jaeger won her first freshman award after 17 kills on .355 hitting at CU. Home sweeps of Evansville and SIU followed, setting up the season’s final road trip to the ISUs with MVC seeding on the line. Jaeger hammered 15 kills on .636 hitting to defeat Indiana State 3-0 on Nov. 18, and Thomas did the rest at Illinois State, posting 10 kills, 48 assists and 18 digs for her first career triple-double. The win mirrored the conference-opener against the Redbirds with the Bears falling behind 2-0 and winning the fifth set by a 15-8 score.

MVC Sends Three

to

NCAAs

For the sixth consecutive season, the MVC sent multiple squads to the NCAA Tournament with the Bears, UNI and Wichita State qualifying in 2011. The Bears had to wait until the final pairings were unveiled to find out they were headed to Malibu, Calif., for a date with 15th-seeded Pepperdine on the Waves’ home floor. Missouri State competed in the first two sets, losing 25-22 and 25-21 in what felt like a winnable match, before falling 25-16 in the third thanks to a 10-2 Pepperdine run to salt it away. UNI made the second round as the No. 6 overall seed, losing to Florida in Cedar Falls, while Wichita State bowed out against Kansas State in the first round. to the

Record Book

Kelley Michnowicz and Calli Norman continued to battle one another in career hitting percentage throughout the season, with Michnowicz gaining the upper hand to finish fourth in school history with a .2994 career mark. Norman finished sixth at .2987, just seven ten-thousandths behind. Norman also concluded her career ranked seventh in sets played (465), ninth in block assists (385), and 11th in kills (1,224) and total blocks (443). Thomas’ big season moved her to eighth in

The Bears had the No. 2 seed in the MVC Tournament but ran into a hot Wichita State club in the semifinals, losing in three sets. Both clubs entered the match with RPIs in the low-to-mid 40s, and a win-and-in feeling in terms of NCAA Tournament inclusion loomed over both sides. Luckily for the Bears, their body of work for the entire season proved strong enough come Selection Sunday.

of

Awards

to go

Around

Norman headlined the award winners by landing first-team all-MVC honors for the fourth consecutive season, becoming the third player in league history to do so. Thomas joined Norman on the first team and made the AVCA All-Central Region squad as an honorable mention choice to go along with a trio of MVC Player of the Week selections. Brand hauled in MSU’s second consecutive MVC Freshman of the Year award to go with three league freshman of the week selections, and was joined by Jaeger on the all-Freshman team. Jaeger added a pair of MVC weekly awards in November. Rivatto rounded out MSU’s all-conference selections with an MVC Second Team nod and an MVC Scholar-Athlete honorable mention nod. Mason hauled in a number of academic awards, beginning with a spot on the MVC Scholar-Athlete First Team. She twice was named the league’s Prairie Farms ScholarAthlete of the Week, each time coinciding with an MVC Defensive Player of the Week award. Mason also earned a spot on the U.S. Women’s National A2 roster during the offseason.

Stokes Continues

to

Win

Melissa Stokes completed her 16th season at MSU with a 357-164 record. She ranks third all-time in victories among MVC coaches, and first in conference wins with 208. She has piloted the Bears to 13 consecutive 20win seasons, a streak longer than all but six other schools nationally.

Missouri State 20-20 Club (20 Kills-Digs in a Match)

There have been 27 times that an Missouri State player has recorded 20 kills and 20 digs in a match, and 13 Bears have accounted for the 20-20s. Michelle Witzke had three 20-20s in 1997 to raise her career total to seven, a Missouri State record. No Missouri State player has ever had a 30-30 match, although Witzke came close with 32 kills and 27 digs at Drake on November 2, 1997. On October 7, 1989, Missouri State posted three 20-20s against Arkansas State as Ruch (21-29), Laura Graham (20-20) and Melinda Bingham (20-22) each joined the 20-20 club in that match.

Missouri State Triple-20 Club (20 Kills-Assists-Digs in a Match)   Only three Bear volleyball players have accomplished the triple-20 of 20 or more kills, assists and digs in a match. Missouri State has not had a triple-20 since 1989, mainly because in recent years the Bears have used a 5-1 offense in which the setter does not hit as much as in a 6-2 (twosetter) offense, used more frequently by Missouri State in the 1980s.   Two players – Ruch and Bingham – each posted triple20s against Arkansas State on October 7, 1989, but no Bear foe has ever achieved the rare feat. The Missouri State triple-20 club, with kill, assist and dig totals: Kathy Crotty. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 24-41-25   9/26/86 vs. Mississippi Kathy Crotty. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 31-35-22   11/22/86 vs. UNI Susan Ruch. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 22-35-20   9/23/88 vs. Ohio State Susan Ruch. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 21-35-29   10/7/89 vs. Arkansas State Melinda Bingham . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 21-35-29   10/7/89 vs. Arkansas State Susan Ruch. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 25-30-30   11/18/89 vs. UNI

The Dr. Mary Jo Wynn Invitational has been played since 1985 with no tournaments in 1993, 1995 & 1996.

Missouri State Fall Invitational Until recent years, the Bears hosted a pair of in-season tournaments – the September Classic (later named the Dr. Mary Jo Wynn Invitational) and the Autumn Classic (later named the Missouri State Fall Invitational). From 1993 to 1996, Missouri State had just one in-season tournament - the 1994 September Classic. But the Bears hosted the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament in 1993,1996, 2003 and 2007 and hosted the Fall Invitational again in 1997 and 2002.
