2017 LUMBERJACK TRACK & FIELD MEDIA GUIDE SEASON PREVIEW - DISTANCE

Lanley, Ryan Wall, Zoe

Northern Arizona is well-renowned for its distance program, and the talent the Lumberjacks bring into the track and field season in 2017 has the potential to further support that claim…and then some. Baxter, Day and Trouard are most recently coming off of All-American performances during their run at the school’s first NCAA National Championship in November, while Glines—last season’s 10K conference champ—was NAU’s all-important fifth man at that race. All four competed at NCAA West Prelims in 2016, while Trouard advanced to NCAA Championships in the 1500m. Townsend (indoor), Gilchrist and Goo return to the Lumberjack lineup as well, with all three contributing during 2016’s outdoor conference championship and the most recent Big Sky Women’s Cross Country Championship. The biggest loss this season will be felt in the form of Zienasellassie, one of the greatest distance athletes ever in NAU history. Last track season, the conference record holder in the 10K event and sixtime All-American became the first Big Sky athlete since 2011 to win indoor gold in two events backto-back years. Subsequently, he was named the conference’s “Most Valuable Athlete” for the second-consecutive season—accounting for 20 points. Zienasellassie went onto win another 5K title at Big Sky Outdoors and compete at NCAA Championships before eventually running at the U.S. Olympic Trials.

#NAUSTRONG SEASON PREVIEW - JUMPS

RETURNERS Kisiel, Matthew Odol, Obang Paige, Joseph Wayne, Kaitlyn

DEPARTURES Brown, Anthony Clay, Alexis Kemper, Deante

ADDITIONS Bosley, Trevon Hartshorn West, Steven Jones, Chris Rayford, Cameron

TRACK & FIELD

With Deante Kemper sidelined for the entire 2016 season, both Odol and Kisiel had to step up in big ways for the Lumberjack jumps unit. Their progression last season has made them battle-tested and ready to contribute in big ways this year at conference championships. Clay was lost to graduation, and her contribution of points at Big Sky Outdoor Championships was crucial in mounting the women’s comeback and winning the conference title. Coach Roderick Townsend—fresh off his two gold medal performance at the Rio Paralympics in August—hit the recruiting trail hard to begin his second season at NAU, signing six new athletes including transfers Bosley and McPherson.

McPherson, Shanice McLeod, Helena (Heptathlon) A high jumper at Glendale Community College in Williams-Evsi, Destiny 2016, Bosley placed sixth at the Junior College National Championships and earned All-American honors. Not to be outdone, McPherson had a phenomenal undergraduate career at New Mexico Highlands, becoming a two-time DII National Champion in the long jump and receiving All-American accolades seven times in her four years at NMHU.

2017 LUMBERJACK TRACK & FIELD MEDIA GUIDE SEASON PREVIEW - SPRINTS & HURDLES

RETURNERS Carter, Tylnn Earl, Aeryana Fisher, James Fotinos, Nicole Kennedy, Isaiah Lugo, David

Malone, Jasmine Maxey, Clarissa Mondane, Jalen Taylor, Ashley Tchenawou, Kossi

DEPARTURES Briggs, Raymond Combs, JaShawn Edwards, Bria Grey, Kameryon Lyles, Michael

Murray, Sarah Padget, Dana Villareal, Devin Wolfe, Tyren

Under Coach Kenny McDaniel’s leadership, the NAU sprints unit has come on strong in the past couple of seasons and that level of excellence was no more present than in his relay groups last year. The Lumberjack men and women 4x400m relay teams combined to win three of a possible four conference titles during the indoor and outdoor seasons, while the men’s 4x100m relay team became the first in NAU history and only the second in conference history to compete at NCAA Championships. Fisher—a vital member of both the 4x1 and 4x4—laces them up again in 2017 for the ‘Jacks. The native of Arlington, Texas, looks to become the first Big Sky athlete to ever three-peat in the indoor 200m event this season. The dynamic duo of Malone and Maxey—both conference champions as members of a relay team—are poised to also make strides in their respective individual events this season, while veterans Fotinos and Taylor look to follow up 2016 NCAA West Prelim appearances with an even better sprints campaign this time around. The Lumberjacks, however, do lose Norris (the first leg of the NCAA Championship 4x1 team in 2016) and Edwards. Both leave big voids to fill.

LUMBERJACK


#NAUSTRONG SEASON PREVIEW - THROWS

RETURNERS Alarcio-Caldon, Meredith Andersen, Brooke Collins, Shawn (outdoor) Ecker, Jazzmine Hatler-Stefick, Tiana Keenan, Adam

Pott, Rachel Saxe, Justin Viberg, Julia Vielma, Brittany Williams, Brady

DEPARTURES Brandt, Kyle Ljungberg, Micael McNamara, Kadie Rustin, Kurt Weise, Jessica

ADDITIONS Calandra, Heather Joens, Parker Kalaniopio, Phillip Kaufman, Jacob Walker, Sykora

TRACK & FIELD

With the exception of Hatler-Stefick, every key returnee for the throws group has at least one conference title under their belts. To her credit, though, Hatler-Stefick was an NCAA West Prelim qualifier last season, making NAU throws arguably the strongest unit in 2017 as far as depth and talent goes. Before redshirting in 2016, Viberg was the defending three-time Big Sky Champ in the discus event. Collins, who only has eligibility for outdoor, claimed conference gold in the shot put event at both indoor and outdoor championships last season. United States Olympic Trials competitor Andersen returns to full form for NAU in 2017 after redshirting last year’s outdoor campaign, while NCAA All-American Keenan— the Big Sky record holder in the hammer throw event at 230-1 (70.14m), which ranked eighth nationally in 2016—will look to further cement his place into NAU history with even greater aspirations this season. The Lumberjack lose McNamara and Weise, though, on the women’s side, while Ljungberg will be absent on the men’s end. Weise was the conference outdoor champion and conference indoor runner-up in the shot put last year, while McNamara scored vital points in the discus at Big Sky’s to help ensure the victory for the women. Ljungberg’s absence will be noticeable as well, as he was a three-time Big Sky Champion in the discus event during his career.

The women’s cross country program has advanced to nationals every season under Smith’s guidance, including top-five finishes in 2013 and 2014. A former All-BIG EAST, All-Region, and All-American cross country runner at Georgetown, Smith was a 2007 qualifier for the U.S. Olympic Trials in the marathon, competing in November 2007.

ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH - SPRINTS & HURDLES

KENNY

McDaniel

Lumberjack Associate Track & Field Head Coach Kenny McDaniel enters his sixth season at Northern Arizona University. McDaniel works with the men’s and women’s sprinters and hurdlers, bringing his energetic and passionate approach to the Lumberjack student-athletes. He joined the NAU program after five seasons as an assistant at Arizona State. Northern Arizona (2011-present) During his time with NAU, McDaniel has coached his sprinters and hurdlers to a combined 13 gold medals in the indoor and outdoor seasons, with seven alone coming in 2016. He guided James Fisher to his fourth consecutive Big Sky title in the men’s 200m event while also coaching the men’s 4x400m (indoor) and the women’s 4x400m (indoor and outdoor) relay teams to gold medals at conference championships. The men’s 4x100m also secured a first-place victory at outdoor conference championships, where they went onto qualify for nationals with a time of 40.00 at NCAA West Prelims. It marked only the second time in the conference’s 52 year history a men’s 4x1 team made it to NCAA Championships. One of the most impressive accomplishments during McDaniel’s tenure came during the 2016 outdoor season. Under his guidance, the NAU women’s 4x400m relay team went onto break a 17-year old school record one week and then bested that record-breaking time the next weekend. Jasmine Malone, Clarissa Maxey, Ashley Taylor and Nicole Fotinos combined to break the old record at the Jim Click Shootout with a 3:43.49 time, while Malone, Taylor and Fotinos teamed up with Bria Edwards the next weekend to set an even better record with a time of 3:41.30.

ASSISTANT COACH - THROWS

NATHAN

Ott

Lumberjack Assistant Track & Field Coach Nathan Ott enters his third season at Northern Arizona University, concerning himself primarily with the throws unit. Ott joins NAU after a season as the throws coach for Texas State and six seasons at his alma mater, Southern Utah, from which he graduated in 2007. During his first two seasons in Flagstaff, Ott’s athletes have experienced plenty of success and have won an array of Big Sky Conference titles. Two of those conference championships belong to stud Canadian hammer thrower Adam Keenan, who—during his only season with NAU—shattered the school and conference record in the hammer event (23001, 70.14m). Keenan went onto pick up All-American accolades at 2016 NCAA Outdoor Championships with the single-greatest mark (227-10, 69.45m) from a Big Sky throws athlete competing at nationals in the 50-plus years of the conference. Throwers Brooke Andersen and Julia Viberg have also been coached under Ott’s leadership for the past two seasons. Notably, Andersen has won 11 individual events (eight in hammer, three in weight) since Ott has arrived on campus, including a 2015 conference title in the hammer. She also competed at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials and holds the fourth-best hammer throw mark in Big Sky history. On the flip side, Viberg—who redshirted in 2016—has six individual meet titles in the discus throw, which include two Big Sky Championships since Ott has taken over. Viberg’s

@NAUATHLETICS

discus PR (187-3, 57.07m) ranks third all-time in conference history. At Texas State, Ott coached one national qualifier, four west preliminary qualifiers and eight Sunbelt Conference Champions. He also had athletes break records in the men’s indoor and outdoor shot put, weight throw and hammer throw – which was set and reset by two different athletes – and the women’s weight throw. At Southern Utah, Ott coached 19 conference champions, 11 NCAA Regional qualifiers and one All-American. Under his tenure, the Thunderbird throwers broke 13 school records, posted 142 top 10 marks and boasted three team MVPs. In 2013, Ott coached Kayla Kovar to an indoor Big Sky Championship in the shot put and a Most Outstanding Performer honor. In total, Kovar notched six conference championships under Ott’s coaching. She also holds school records in the indoor and outdoor shot put, weight throw, discus and is second all-time in the hammer throw. As a student-athlete at Southern Utah, Ott set the school record in the hammer throw with a distance of 201-05. He won the Mid-Continent Conference Championship for the hammer throw in 2007 and was the team’s leading scorer in 2006. He was also a two-time NCAA West Regional qualifier.

2017 LUMBERJACK TRACK & FIELD MEDIA GUIDE VICE PRESIDENT FOR INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS

Dr. Lisa Campos was hired in April 2012 as Northern Arizona’s Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics. Since her arrival, Campos has guided the Lumberjacks to Back-to-Back Big Sky Conference Presidents’ Cup trophies; an award that recognizes the department’s overall excellence in competition and in the classroom. In 2013, NAU became the fourth institution to win multiple Presidents’ Cups, winning their second (first was 2005-06); and then followed it up during the 2013-14 school year. NAU has captured 24 team conference championships during Campos’ time in Flagstaff, while nine teams have advanced to postseason competition. The Lumberjacks’ stellar athletic achievements have led to the men’s programs winning the Big Sky All-Sports Trophy three consecutive times from 2014-16. The women’s teams captured the trophy in 2014, and have been runners-up the last two years. During the 2015-16 school year, the men’s indoor and outdoor track & field teams won their fifth straight title for each, while the women’s team captured the outdoor crown. Volleyball won the Big Sky Regular Season and Tournament Championship to earn its first NCAA appearance berth since 1999. Swimming & diving captured its third straight Western Athletic Conference Championship defeating its nearest competition by over 300 points. During the 2015-16 school year, NAU finished with a 3.12 overall cumulative grade point average. Seven of 13 teams finished the 2015-16 academic year with a GPA of at least 3.00 led by the swimming and diving team, who recorded a 3.44 gpa. Four student-athletes received CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-District honors, while Caleb Hoover picked up his second CoSIDA/ Capital One Academic All-American First Team honoree. NAU had 118 total student-athletes earn All-Academic honors by the Big Sky and WAC. A total of 58 student-athletes earned their degrees during the 2015-16 academic year with a cumulative gpa of 3.20, while 184 Dean’s List honors were bestowed. Campos and the Lumberjacks continue to give back to the community as Lumberjack student-athletes set a new record for community service hours with 5,428; beating last year’s mark of 5,327. Dr. Campos currently sits on the prestigious NCAA Division I Football Oversight Committee, a subcommittee of the new governance model. She also sits on the Board of Directors at NACWAA and for the local United Way of Northern Arizona. At the time of her hire at NAU, Campos became one of 26 females and the youngest in the country to lead a Division I program, including 13 head athletic administrators at the Football Championship Subdivision level. Campos took over the leadership of the Lumberjack Athletics Department after serving as the Senior Associate Athletic Director at the University of Texas at El Paso from 2006 to 2012. Campos served as the sport administrator for several Miner sports programs and was also the primary administrator for compliance, CHAMPS/Life Skills, strength and conditioning, sports medicine, and cheerleading. While at UTEP, Dr. Campos assisted with athletic facility enhancements and co-directed the planning and design of the $2.6 million Helen of Troy Softball Complex, which opened in September 2005. In 2006, Campos was the NCAA liaison for the Self Study Re-

@NAUATHLETICS

port for NCAA Certification and continued to oversee all gender, minority equity, and student welfare strategic plans. In 2005, she created the Athletics Diversity Graduate Assistantship Program and served on the UTEP Women’s Resource Advisory Board. Campos also served as Associate Athletic Director and Senior Woman Administrator and the Assistant Dean of Students within the UTEP Division of Student Affairs during her time in El Paso. While at UTEP, Dr. Campos had the opportunity to serve on a number of NCAA Committees, including the NCAA Division I Championships/Competition Cabinet, the NCAA Rifle Committee, and chaired the NCAA Women’s Soccer Committee. Dr. Campos holds a doctorate degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Texas at El Paso. She graduated from Colorado State University where she earned a bachelor’s of science degree in Business Administration and a master’s of science degree in Student Affairs in Higher Education. Campos is a member of the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators (NACWAA), National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association (FCS ADA) and Flagstaff Leadership Program. A native of Las Animas, Colo., Campos is married to Darren D’Attilio. They live in Flagstaff with their son, Christopher.
