P The Northern Arizona women’s golf team has high expectations entering the 2013 spring campaign. With a roster full of experience and potential, Head Coach Brad Bedortha expects his team to compete every time on the course with their targets set on the Big Sky Championship. “We are very excited about the spring season,” said Bedortha. “I thought we played very well at spots in the fall. We played well early in tournaments but did not finish as well in the third round of a couple events. I feel like we have the nucleus to have a very good spring.” Senior Stephanie Kim enters her final semester looking to post a strong finish to her career. A two-time Big Sky Player of the Year and All-Big Sky first-team selection, she holds the top two single-season scoring marks in school history. After her stroke average dropped almost two strokes last season, Kim looks for better performances this season and owned a 75.4 stroke average in the fall. “Obviously she has been a great player for us and owns most of the school records,” said Bedortha. “She has been an outstanding student-athlete. She played great in the fall and is playing more consistent. Everyone expects a lot of her.

Senior Stephanie Kim will finish her career as the most decorated player in school history.

Not to put pressure on her but she is our senior and our leader. I think she will have a great spring.” Kim won the Big Sky Championship after her freshman season and would like nothing more than to cap her career with another conference title. She was an All-Big Sky second-team selection in 2012 and posted a 77.2 stroke average over 11 tournaments. She

finished eighth at the Big Sky Championships, carding rounds of 72-74-73 for one of three top10 finishes on the season. Junior Kaitlen Parsons returns for her third season after becoming a mainstay in the lineup over her first two seasons. She led the team with a 76.6 stroke average last season and the team counted all 29 of her rounds played during the season. Parsons posted six top 20 and four top 10 finishes helped by six even or under par rounds. She led the team at five tournaments, including a team-best seventh-place finish at the Big Sky Championship. “She can do a lot for us,” said Bedortha. “Her golf ability is very good. We need to get her back to playing more consistently. I am looking forward to her progressing in the spring. She has taken over more leadership qualities with Stephanie.” Freshman Savana Bezdicek, who led the team with a 75.4 scoring average in the fall, has played solidly in her first semester, adding another strong and consistent scoring threat to the lineup. She led the team in two of four tournaments in the fall and captured her first individual title at the Lamkin Grip/Cal Poly Invitational. “She has stepped right in,” said Bedortha. “She joked that she was worried about making

the travel roster but she played great right away. The sky is the limit for her. She continues to get better and works very hard at it. She has all the characteristics to be a very good player.” The sophomore class includes four players with playing experience that will contend for lineup spots this spring. Freshman Laura Jabczenski posted a strong freshman season. She recorded an 80.0 stroke average, the third-best mark on the team, in her initial campaign with four top-20 finishes and one top-10. The Tucson native finished tied for 15th at the Big Sky Championship, posting rounds of 73-76-78. Colombian product Susana

Mejia saw action in seven tournaments last season, posting an 82.7 stroke average. She tied for 23rd at the Big Sky Championship with rounds of 78-76-78. Classmate Darian Spivey will also contend for a roster spot. She had a strong finish at the Cal Poly event to finish the fall and has played well this spring. Melissa Olson will also compete after a solid freshman year. She saw action in 11 tournaments last season and finished 33rd at the Big Sky Championship. “We need some people to step up in the spring and say they want to be in the top five and want to compete,” said Bedortha. “It is nice to have more depth this year and competiveness. They are being pushed by themselves and their teammates. Any of them can step up and play great.” NAU is the coaches’ top pick in the 2013 Big Sky Conference preseason poll. Bedortha’s Lumberjacks received eight of the 11 first-place votes and 98 total points. Portland State was in the No. 2 spot, earning two first-place votes and 83 total points, while Sacramento State was third with one first-place vote and 76 total points. Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own team. The Lumberjacks finished the fall season ranked 129th in

The Lumberjacks open the spring season with the first of six tournaments starting at The Lumberjack at Ocotillo held at the Ocotillo Golf Resort Feb. 1113 in Chandler, Ariz. It is the first of three events NAU will play on the course, including the Cowgirl Classic (April 8-10) and the Big Sky Conference Championship (April 21-23).

BRAD BEDORTHA Head Coach ~ Fifth Season Brad Bedortha begins his fifth full season as the women’s golf coach at Northern Arizona University. He took over mid-semester during the spring of 2008, coaching the program over the final three tournaments of the season. Bedortha has helped the team rewrite the record books and win 11 tournaments under his direction while competing for the Big Sky Championship each season. The Lumberjacks have posted the top two individual team rounds and top five three-round totals under Bedortha, while the individual school record has also been broken twice during his tenure. The Lumberjacks won a school-record tying four tournaments in 2010-11, setting the individual single round and team tournament scoring marks during the season. NAU shot a seven-over par 871 at the Lumberjack Shootout at Wigwam, posting rounds of 287-292-292 to break the threeround tournament school record by 26 strokes. The previous mark of 897 came at the 2010 Wyoming Cowgirl Invitational. All three rounds ranked among the top 10 single-round performances in school history and the opening round 287 was the second-best round in the record books. NAU finished second at the 2011 Big Sky Conference Championship. The Lumberjacks’ three-round total of 891 was the fourth-best team score in tournament history and second lowest non-winning score. Sophomore Stephanie Kim was named the Big Sky Player of the Year for the second consecutive season. Senior Alexa Kim was chosen for the All-Big Sky first-team and senior Bethany Leclair was an All-Big Sky second team selection. Leclair was the top finisher at the Big Sky Championship in second after recording a school-record five-under par 67 in the final round. Stephanie Kim broke the single season scoring record for the second consecutive season, helping the Lumberjacks win four tournaments: the Circling Raven Collegiate Invitational, the Cal

Poly Lamkin Grip Women’s Invitational, the Red Rocks Invitational and the Lumberjack Shootout at Wigwam. The four tournament titles ties the school record for wins in a season set in 2009-10. NAU also won four team tournament titles in 2009-10, setting a new school record. The Lumberjacks also broke the single-, two- and three-round team, as well the single-season school records this season. The Lumberjacks shattered the team individual round school record with a three-under par 285 in the first round of the Grand Canyon Invitational, finishing with a twoday total of 580 to break the two-round mark of 584 set at the 1998 Lumberjack Invitational. The previous single-round record was 291 set at the 2002 Lumberjack Invitational, while the two-round mark was set at 584 at the 1998 Lumberjack Invitational. In the final regular season tournament, NAU broke the 54-hole mark by eclipsing the 900-stroke barrier for the first time in school history with an 897 at the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic. The Lumberjacks averaged a school-best 304.5 strokes per round. Stephanie Kim was chosen the Big Sky Player of the Year and the Big Sky Freshman of the Year, the first golfer in league history to win both honors in the same season. She won the 2010 Big Sky Championship with a school-record tying 54-hole total of 216. She posted rounds of 69-70-77 to claim the title by four strokes over teammate Megan Buck, who carded a career-best 220 over

Leclair tied the then-school record with a three-under par 69 in the second round with the team posting a 296 score in the second round, tying the seventh-best round in school history.

women’s coach at Division II Ferris State University in Michigan since 2000. He was named the Division II National Coach of the Year after leading his women’s team to a fourth-place national finish in 2005. Overall, he led five Ferris State women’s teams into the national championships, finishing second in both 2004 and 2006 and third in 2007. Ferris State's 2006-07 season success followed on the heels of the greatest season in the program's history as Bedortha coached the 200506 team to a runner-up finish at the 2006 NCAAII Women's Golf Championships as the Bulldogs ended up six strokes behind the national champion. Nevertheless, the second-place performance on the national stage not only marked the highest placing ever in FSU women's golf history but was the best finish in the history of women's athletics at Ferris State. Bedortha paved the way for a pair of All-Americans as Elena Robles attained second-team recognition while Casey McKinnon was an honorable mention selection. Both tied for third place on the final individual leaderboard at the 2006 national tournament.

Bedortha helped the 2000-01 squad claim fifth place at the 2001 NCAA Championships in just his second season at Ferris State, which represented the program's first national tournament appearance since 1994. Then following after a two-year absence, he mentored the 2003-04 NCAA-II East Regional champions in producing an impressive second-place tying effort at the 2004 NCAA-II Women's Golf Championships. At the time, the runner-up tying finish was the highest-ever in the school's women's athletics program. Ferris would return to the national tournament the following year and place fourth in the 2005 event. During his tenure, Ferris State teams captured a combined six GLIAC Conference Championships and five NCAA Regional titles. He tutored four players to nine All-America honors and 12 to Academic All-America status. Twentytwo student-athletes earned all-conference honors, while 15 captured academic all-conference honors. A native of Oregon, Bedortha worked at various golf clubs prior to joining the Ferris State staff including Bend Golf and Country Club and Sunriver Resort in Oregon, Desert Mountain Club in Scottsdale, Ariz., and Deer Run Country Club in Cincinnati, Ohio. He also worked with the Madison Golf Development Group. A 1990 graduate of Ferris State's Professional Golf Management program, Bedortha returned to his alma mater in March 2000 after serving as the assistant golf professional at the Bend Golf and Country Club in Bend, Ore. He was an all-conference golfer as an undergraduate at Ferris and helped the Bulldogs win league titles in 1988 and 1989 under coach Ron English. A three-year FSU letterwinner, Bedortha recorded a career 79.9 stroke average and posted a personal career-best 78.0 average for the 1988 season.

Dr. John Haeger President John D. Haeger leads Northern Arizona University in its commitment to undergraduate education-a c o m m i t m e n t enhanced by the university's ongoing efforts in research, graduate education and distance learning. Dr. Haeger has been NAU president since November 2001 after joining the university to serve as NAU provost in June 2000. During his term as president, Dr. Haeger has guided the university to new heights in student enrollment. He also has ushered the university into its largest building boom since the 22year term of former NAU President J. Lawrence Walkup. Further, he has fully endorsed a national effort to increase institutional accountability, explaining that NAU must perform on a level that demonstrates its significance to students and to society. Among university achievements under his leadership: • Tuition guarantee. Dr. Haeger instituted a "block tuition" plan that guarantees first-time, full-time freshmen and transfer students the same tuition rate for eight semesters. • Access and affordability. NAU has

partnership with 15 community colleges throughout the state. The initiative streamlines the credit transfer process, allowing students enrolled at partnering community colleges to save time and money by being admitted to NAU while they are earning an associate degree. • Innovation. NAU-Yavapai opened its Prescott Valley doors last fall, allowing students to earn bachelor’s degrees at about one-third the cost of a traditional, residential college experience. The savings comes from offering a limited number of degree options and using existing resources through NAU’s Flagstaff campus. The cost-saving model garnered the attention of Gov. Jan Brewer, who called it “visionary” and “an example for the entire state and the nation.” • Expansion of nursing and the health professions. The university has placed emphasis on graduating more students in nursing and developing or expanding programs in occupational therapy, athletic training and physicians assistant. • Commitment to research. President Haeger has instituted NAU's first office of Vice President for Research. In Yuma, a 12,225-squarefoot building that will provide research four-year degree opportunities. • High Country Conference Center. Dr. Haeger initiated a joint partnership

between the city of Flagstaff, Drury Hotels and Sodexo to build a 42,000square-foot conference center and an adjoining hotel and parking structure. Consultants have estimated the economic benefit to northern Arizona to be about $7 million annually. • 1899 Bar & Grill. The university has opened an upscale steakhouse in the old north union that is open to the public and complements the conference center • Largest gift in university history. The College of Business Administration was able to acquire the largest gift in university history, a $25 million donation from prominent business leader William Franke. The college was renamed The W.A. Franke College of Business. • Arizona Cardinals partnership. The Cardinals agreed to continue their training camp in Flagstaff. About $7 million will be added to the northern Arizona economy as a result.
