2012 NCCU Softball

Season Preview

Under the direction of first-year head coach Theresa Stephens, the Lady Eagles of North Carolina Central University launch the 2012 campaign with a doubleheader against the Seahawks of UNC Wilmington on Friday, Feb. 10 in Wilmington, N.C., and a two-day appearance at the Elon Invitational on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 11-12 at Elon in Elon, N.C.

Stephens, who begins her collegiate Division I head coaching career at NCCU, will guide 16 Lady Eagles into diamond battle this weekend. The pyramid of Stephens coaching philosophy is “energy, passion and swagger.”

“Energy is one of the staples of this program this season,” said Stephens. “Getting them fired up to play with purpose will guide us to success. As we rediscover the love and desire for this sport, the energy will return rapidly. “I also want to instill that ‘swagger’ a confidant, not cocky, player should possess. And finally, I want to reignite the level of passion for softball, through my own deep passion and enthusiasm.”

Alongside Stephens will be first-year assistant coach Alyssa Ishibashi who enters the coaching realm after a stellar career at North Carolina State University. The 16 young women in maroon and gray consist of 10 returners and six newcomers, with two of the Lady Eagle newcomers being junior transfers.

PITCHERS NCCU enters the 2012 season with another threewoman pitching workforce consisting of two returners and one new Lady Eagle: senior Aurora Baker, junior Kayla McPeek and junior transfer Bianka Molina. McPeek returners as the standout pitcher during her sophomore year, as she led the pitching regime with a 5.92 ERA with 112.1 innings pitched. She finished the season with four of the six pitching wins and led the team in strikeouts with 32 in the course of 28 games with 18 starts.

“McPeek is one of our top returning pitchers,” said Stephens. “As she bounces back from a minor wrist injury, she has become more focused of the movement of the ball and getting stronger.” Baker appeared in 13 games and seven starts during the 2011 campaign. In her second year as a Lady Eagle, she was second among the pitchers with 7.94 ERA in 52.0 innings.

“Baker is back for her last season and I’m very excited about watching her continue to grow throughout this season,” said Stephens. “She has grown up so much in the circle.”

Molina, who is a transfer from De Anza College, will be a solid addition to the pitching staff. As a high school student-athlete, she led her team to a 15-12 overall record and an 8-6 league record in her senior year. “Molina is one of the easiest pitchers I’ve ever worked

with,” said Stephens. “She is another player that leads by her performance on the field. She is a very quiet player and does not let much phase her at all in the circle.” CATCHERS There will be two familiar faces behind the plate and one new student-athlete in maroon and gray. With four years of experience and the primary catcher for Lady Eagles will be senior Andrea Searls, followed by sophomore Amanda Bullock and newcomer Sarah Kaiser.

Searls enters her final year in maroon and gray following a strong outing in 2011, where she appeared in 35 games with 35 starts. For the second consecutive season, the catcher was second in slugging percentage at .313 with 11 runs, 27 hits and eight RBI on 99 times at bat. From the field Searls is fifth in at 92.1 percent with 101 putouts, 27 assists and 139 chances, while catching 13 opponents stealing bases on 52 attempts. “I am very blessed that I am getting at least one year with this young lady,” said Stephens. “She is probably one of our smartest players and is turning out to be one of the most devastating hitters we have. She has a great eye for the ball, has a sense of determination and does not like to be defeated.” Bullock, who was last season’s primary first baseman, will see some action from behind the plate as well. In her freshman season, Bullock appeared and started in all 37 contests during the 2011 campaign. She was fourth on the team in batting average with a .250 after going 24-for-96 and led the team in fielding at 97 percent with 186 putouts, nine assists and seven errors.

“Bullock is another promising hitter for us this year,” said Stephens. “She brings a great deal of power to the plate. Bullock will be seeing time this season in the catching, designate player and first base roles.” Kaiser also hails from De Anza College. The junior transfer attended Saint Frances High School where the team concluded her senior year with 10 wins and 16 loses overall and 6 wins and five losses in league play during the 2007-08 campaign. “Kaiser will bring performance leadership to this

season’s is team,” said Stephens. “In other words, her work on the field will lead the squad and maintain the high level of play we will bring to the game. She loves to hit and brings focus and experience to the plate and in the field.” INFIELD Inside NCCU’s diamond will be full of fresh faces, as Stephens returns three Lady Eagles while welcoming four to the maroon and gray nation. Bullock will return to her duties at first base, while Regina Diaz returns to her duties at middle infield and Shamekia Edwards returns to action after taking a hiatus during the 2011 season. Infield newcomers include Martha Batie, Tiphani Jackson, Kaiser and Ariel Lanier. Diaz, who had an outstanding freshman year with 36 starts in 36 contests attained a .170 batting average after going 14-of-88 and scoring 10 runs with 10 RBI and one double. She was a perfect 4-for-4 in stolen bases, as well as a .871 fielding percentage with 46 putouts, 76 assists and 18 errors.

“Diaz is the voice to this team and you will always hear her on the field,” said Stephens. “She has shown the most improvements among her class. Diaz brings that mental strength to the game that every coach appreciates.”

Edwards competed during the 2010 campaign. “Edwards is back and better than ever,” said Stephens. “She brings defensive strength and power at the plate. She has the unique ability to come through in the clutch by moving runners and getting them in.”

Batie enters the nest from Susquehanna Township High School, where she was named all-conference three times from 2009-2011. In her debut as an Eagle, the Harrisburg, Pa., native will be vital to the success of third base and middle infield. “Batie brings the team a little more speed and talent,” said Stephens.

Jackson begins her collegiate career after playing high school softball at Elizabeth Seton High School in Bowie, Md. “Jackson will be that freshman who will be seeing quite

a few starting rolls this season between second and first base,” said Stephens. “She has stepped up to the challenges we have presented to her and is starting to blossom into one of those key players offensively and defensively.”

Lanier of Mableton, Ga., will bring a double dynamic of academic strength and athleticism. As she commences her career as a Lady Eagle, Lanier is coming off the Defensive Player of the Year award, Highest G.P.A. Award with a 4.3 average on a 4.0 scale and an appearance at the state playoffs. OUTFIELD The outfield will have the most experienced depth this season, with four returners commanding the grass: Cember Carmichael, Mae’Risha Watts, Nadia Moreta and Nadia Jefferies. Carmichael returns to the diamond following a stellar freshman year. She appeared in 37 games for NCCU, where she started in all 37, and was first on the team in batting average with .393 on a 25-of-89 effort. Carmichael was the lone Eagle to obtain homeruns with two, as she notched four doubles and one triple and attained a team-high 18 RBI. She also notched a .891 fielding percentage with 39 putouts, two assists and five errors.

“Carmichael is the returner to look out for and one of our top hitters returning,” said Stephens. “Not only has Carmichael worked hard to become a stronger mental game hitter, she has also improved her defensive game.”

Watts will return to the grass for the 2012 campaign, after advancing her playing time in 2011 to 37 contests on 36 starts as the starting center fielder. Watts accomplished a .838 fielding percentage with 53 putouts and four assists on 68 chances. “Watts has truly stepped it up defensively and offensively and has taken the time to focus on creating an offensive balance,” said Stephens.

Moreta enters her fourth and final year as a Lady Eagle outfielder. During last season’s campaign Moreta recorded a .879 fielding percentage with 26 putouts

and 61 assists on 99 chances as a third baseman.

“Moreta is also back for her last season as our right fielder and potential pinch hitter,” said Stephens.

Jefferies looks to continue her stellar effort from last season, where she played and started in 29 contests of the 2011 season. She enters her junior season as the third slugging leader at 29.6 percent with 15 runs and 23 hits on 81 times at bat. The right fielder tallied 19 assists on 77 chances with 48 putouts for 87.0 percent from the field, on top of seizing her best outing in a 1-0 victory over Saint Paul’s College with three runs, two hits and one RBI on three times at bat. “Jefferies will definitely be running the bags more this year,” said Stephens. “She not only brings speed, she has also improved on her left side shortcake and as a result she has turned into a stronger utility player.” CONCLUSION The 2012 softball season will be a year of nuisances, the season that Stephens plans to “take the MidEastern Athletic Conference by storm.”

SCHEDULE The 2012 North Carolina Central University softball season will be full of many nuances as first-year head softball coach Theresa Stephens announces the 2012 competition schedule on a new playing field on Friday, Dec. 16. In its first year as a full Division I and Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference competitor, NCCU, which is competing as a southern division squad, will battle eight conference foes, host 12 competitions, venture to nine Division I institutions and take part in four tournaments.

This season, the Lady Eagles will welcome 12 competitors to a new diamond. Piney Wood Park, which is located 4.6 miles away from campus, will be the new home of the Lady Eagles.

“Our schedule should be a perfect schedule for our student-athletes this season,” said Stephens. “It is not overly dominating, but competitive enough for us to compete. Our schedule will allow us to grow and

improve every time we hit the field.”

Theresa Stephens Head Coach / First Year Temple, 2003 / Phoenixville, Pa.

North Carolina Central University announced Theresa Stephens as its head softball coach on Monday, June 27. Stephens joins NCCU with more than eight years of coaching experience at the Division I, II and III levels, as well USA Softball and semiprofessional playing experience.

education assistant from 2003-05.

Prior to accepting the position at NCCU, Stephens was the top assistant softball coach at Campbell (Buies Creek, N.C.), primarily coaching and developing a pitching staff of five student-athletes. Preceding her three years at Campbell, Stephens was the assistant softball coach at UNC Pembroke (Pembroke, N.C.) during the 2007-08 year. As a member of the UNC Pembroke coaching staff, Stephens assisted the squad in setting or tying 33 school records in 2008, along with ending the year with an overall record of 46-15 and finishing 17-1 in the Peach Belt Conference.

“I will also bring passion to the program, through myself and the staff I surround the young ladies with,” Stephens said. – “When they see how passionate we are, how much we love the sport and how much we care, they will be drawn to that desire to want to succeed. Finally, I feel that I will display strong leadership qualities that anyone will be proud of and desire to follow. If I am a strong leader on and off the field, my student-athletes will emulate that same behavior on and off the diamond.”

“I am very excited about joining the Eagle family and I am very blessed to be given this opportunity to rebuild the program,” said Stephens. “Having the opportunity to coach against these young ladies during the past few years at Campbell University really did inspire me more to want to coach them and be a part of North Carolina Central University.”

Charlie Nelms Chancellor / Fifth Year University of Arkansas Pine Bluff/ Crawfordsville, Ark.

Chancellor Charlie Nelms has led North Carolina Central University since 2007. During that time, despite a challenging b u d g e t climate, he has intensified the university’s emphasis on student success, setting ambitious goals for increasing student retention and graduation rates. These goals were given first priority in the strategic planning effort Nelms led to successful completion in 2010. In keeping with this priority, Nelms reorganized the University College to provide comprehensive advising and academic support services for all entering students and he instituted programs to improve the academic success of African-American males in particular. Nelms established a new vice chancellor for research and economic development to better manage the university’s growing research sector. In 2010 – 2011, university faculty received more than $25 million in sponsored research grants. This year, the university has embarked on the development of a Ph.D. program in integrated biosciences that is scheduled to enroll students in fall 2012. These will be the first doctoral students at NCCU since 1964.

Chancellor Nelms has dramatically improved the aesthetics and physical assets of the campus with the infusion of more than $75 million in new construction of a nursing building, residence hall and parking deck, and millions more in renovation of existing facilities. It was Nelms’ inspiration to move the historic Holy Cross Catholic Church across campus to its new location on Fayetteville Street alongside the new Centennial Garden. In 2011, Nelms published A Call to Action, a policy directive intended to spur a national dialogue

concerning the revitalization of the historically black colleges and universities as an important sector of American higher education.

Before coming to NCCU, Nelms served as vice president for Institutional Development and Student Affairs for the Indiana University system. He was also a chancellor twice before. In 1987, Nelms began a seven-year tenure as chancellor of Indiana University East, and in 1994 he was named chancellor of the University of Michigan at Flint (UMF). There, he resolved a significant campus budget deficit, reversed a four-year enrollment decline and secured more than $75 million in private gifts to UMF. Active in professional, civic, and higher education organizations, Nelms is past chair of the NCA Higher Learning Commission Board of Trustees and the National Advisory Board of the National Survey of Student Engagement. He also served as chair of the American Council on Education (ACE) Commission for Leadership Development and currently serves on ACE’s blue ribbon panel concerning accreditation. Nelms is a member of the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation Board of Trustees and serves on the board of directors of the American Association of State Colleges & Universities.

Nelms is a native of Crawfordsville, Ark., and earned his undergraduate degree in agronomy and chemistry at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, graduating in 1968. He earned a master’s degree in higher education and student affairs in 1971 and a doctorate in higher education administration six years later from Indiana University. Early in his career, he taught and held administrative positions at Earlham College in Indiana, the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, Indiana University Northwest in Gary and Sinclair Community College in Ohio.

2012 NCCU Softball

North Carolina Central University is competing in its first year as an NCAA Division I institution with the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

Fourteen men’s and women’s sports teams participate in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) competition at the Division I-FCS level. Men’s intercollegiate teams include football, basketball, baseball, indoor and outdoor track & field, tennis, golf and cross country. Women’s intercollegiate teams include basketball, volleyball, indoor and outdoor track & field, tennis, softball, bowling and cross country.

NCCU’s athletic programs have enjoyed regional and national recognition for years, headlined by the 1989 NCAA Division II Men’s Basketball National Championship.

2006 CIAA WOMEN'S VOLLEYBALL CHAMPIONS

NCCU’s commitment to a balanced athletic program, providing equitable resources to all of its sports teams, is abundantly apparent. In five of the last eight years in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA), NCCU claimed the Loretta Taylor All-Sports Trophy, recognizing the top all-around women’s program in the conference.

In 2007-08, NCCU’s first season of Division I (FCS) competition, the women’s volleyball team kicked off the Division I era with a dramatic, come-from-behind win over N.C. State, then cruised to 21 victories, all against Division I opponents. The football team finished its first Division I season with a 6-4 record, the Eagles fourth straight winning season. The men’s and women’s cross country teams each won four of their seven events. The men’s basketball team played one of the toughest schedules in the country, while traveling more than 22,000 miles and playing in 13 different states. The squad earned a road victory over the eventual Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) champions and capped the season with a win over rival Winston-Salem State University at the MEAC Tournament. Finally, the track and field program won two events at the prestigious Penn Relays and qualified two student-athletes for the USA Indoor Track and Field Championships in Boston. In 2006-07, NCCU’s final season in the NCAA Division II, the Eagles placed 24th in the final standings of the U.S. Sports Academy Directors’ Cup, the prestigious award presented annually to the best overall collegiate athletics programs in the country. In 2006-07, NCCU won four CIAA team championships and participated in nine NCAA Division II Championship events.

Several former student-athletes and coaches are nationally and internationally known.

Heading the charge of the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games was Dr. LeRoy T. Walker, President of the U.S. Olympic Committee, who lifted the Eagle track & field program to international prominence during his unprecedented tenure as head coach at NCCU. Under Walker’s reign, the Eagles produced 30 national titles, 77 All-Americans, and eight Olympic medalists. Legendary basketball practitioner, John B. McLendon, a member of the National Basketball Hall of Fame, established a remarkable record of 239-68 (.779) as an Eagle head coach from 1940 to 1952. A student of Dr. James Naismith, the inventor of the game of basketball, McLendon is credited with the development of the zone press, fast break and four corners offense.

“Winning” for the Eagles is more than outscoring the opponent, it is excelling in the classroom, actively participating in community service projects and adhering to NCAA rules regarding recruitment and admission of student-athletes.

How can you help the Eagles win? Follow the NCAA rules.

The NCAA defines an institution as the University, its employees, its student-athletes, and its representatives of athletics interests, including parents, alumnus and fans. Therefore beware of the following: NCAA BYLAW 13.1.2.1

In Division I, representatives of an institution’s athletics interests are prohibited from making in-person, on- or off-campus recruiting contacts, including written and/ or telephonic communications with a prospect or the prospect’s relatives or legal guardians. A prospect is defined as any student who has started classes for the ninth grade, whether the student participates in athletics is not relevant to the classification as a prospect and neither is gender.

Written or telephonic communications includes email, instant messaging, paging, video conferencing, faxing and text messaging. NCAA Bylaw 16.02.3

An extra benefit is any special arrangement by an institutional employee or a representative of the institution’s athletics interests to provide a studentathlete or the student-athlete’s relative or friend a benefit not expressly authorized by NCAA legislation.

Unless you are willing to give a benefit to all 8,000 students at NCCU, don’t give it to a student-athlete or a prospect.
