Don LARSON

2010-11 BISON TRACK&FIELD

Head Coach South Dakota State, 1976 32nd season

4

Now in his 32nd season as the head men’s track & field coach for the Bison, Don Larson will look to con nue building a track and field tradi on at North Dakota State. The 2009-10 squad claimed both the league indoor and outdoor tles for the second me in three years. Larson earned coach of the year honors for indoor and outdoor track. Larson led NDSU to its second straight Summit League indoor tle in 2009, earning his second indoor league coach of the year honor. Under Larson’s guidance, senior Ma Bishoff competed in the heptathlon at the NCAA Championships, finishing 11th and earning NDSU’s first-ever Division I All-America honors. The Bison finished second at the league outdoor championships and sent five athletes to the NCAA Midwest Regional. In NDSU’s first season in the Summit League, Larson led the Bison to the Summit League titles in both indoor and outdoor track and field. He was named outdoor coach of the year. In the program’s first year at the Division I level, Larson guided the Bison to a dominating performance at the Division I independent championships in Davis, Calif. NDSU claimed eight individual tles and two relay golds en route to a tally of 245 1/2 points to runner-up UC Davis’ score of 171. Last season, the Bison repeated as team champions, despite losing more than a dozen seniors from the year before, by squeaking by UC Davis 189 to 178.5. In his first 25 years, all at the Division II level, the Bison captured 36 total North Central Conference tles including a conference-record string of 13 consecu ve outdoor tles (1987-99) and 20 of the last 22 outdoor crowns. He coached a total of 193 NCAA Division II All-America performances including four individual compe tors who have won 11 na onal championships, headed by seven- me NCAA Division II na onal champion and 1991 Drake Relays 10,000 meter champion Doug Hanson. Larson’s indoor track & field success includes 14 NCC tles and seven runner-up finishes. NDSU has par cipated in 19 NCAA Division II na onal indoor meets, finishing fourth once, fi h on three occasions, sixth once and seventh twice. NDSU’s outdoor squad has been even more successful, capturing the

NCC crown 21 mes. During Larson’s reign, the Bison have placed no worse than third. North Dakota State had success at the Division II na onal meet as well, finishing in the top 10 seven mes including a third-place finish in 2004, the school’s best finish at a na onal meet. As the head cross country coach, he also coached nine cross country athletes to 13 NCAA Division II All-America awards. “Philosophically, our program believes that we need to work hard, train hard, train smart and s ll have a lot of fun,” said Larson, the United States Track Coaches Associa on’s 2004 Division II indoor and outdoor Na onal Coach of the Year. “I think we’ve been able to balance having me for school, having me for sport and s ll having free me for family and friends. “Most of the athletes we get know the main ingredients of success are hard work and dedica on,” Larson said. “Our goal is to help them con nue to grow and develop. We want to help them make the best of their collegiate careers at NDSU.” The North Central Conference was nothing new to the coach when he took over the Bison in 1979. While competing for conference rival South Dakota State University (1971-76), Larson captured two All-America awards and seven NCC championships in track & field. He set three league records and s ll holds a share of the re red 600-yard indoor mark of 1:11.90 set in 1975. Larson captured his All-America honors in the 400-meter intermediate hurdles in 1972 (6th) and 1975 (4th). The 53-year-old Larson, a na ve of Madison, S.D., holds a bachelor’s degree in physical educa on from South Dakota State and a master’s degree in physical educa on from Minnesota State University-Moorhead. He coached at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn., prior to joining the Bison. Larson, a 49- me Coach of the Year at various levels, was the 1998 recipient of South Dakota State’s Ralph Ginn Award for Coaching Excellence and is a member of the Howard Wood Dakota Relays Hall of Fame. Larson’s wife, Desire’e, is a volunteer assistant in the high jump at NDSU. The coaches have two children, Kelsey and Kira.

WHEATON, Ill.--North Dakota State University won the Na onal Collegiate Athle c Associa on (NCAA) College Division cross country meet here Saturday with Bison Mike Slack capturing his second individual championship. Slack, who a week ago finished second to South Dakota State’s Garry Bentley, was believed to be ill earlier in the week and Coach Roger Grooters ques oned his ability to defend his na onal championship. But blood tests revealed Slack was suffering from a short-term virus and would be able to compete. His me of 24 minutes, 36 seconds over the five-mile Chicago Golf Course was short of his meet record of 24:19. Grooters described the Chicago layout as a “slow course.” The Bison finished with 84 points with S.D. State giving the NCC a 1-2 finish with 143 points for the runner-up spot. Defending champion California-Fullerton was third with 158. Roger Schwegel was the second Bison to finish, in 20th place. Dave Kampa was 21st, freshman Warren Eide 38th and Mark Buzby 46th. Slack, Schwegel and Kampa, by finishing in the top 25, gain Li le All-America honors. Second individually was Dan Moynihan of Tu s, a fourth-place finisher in last year’s meet. Third was Chris Hoffman of California-Fullerton, the ninth runner a year ago, and fourth was SDSU’s Bentley. Over 400 runners represen ng 58 teams competed in the run. Trailing Cal-Fullerton were Luther (Iowa) with 188 points, Western Illinois 236, California-Davis 315, Ashland (Ohio) 321 and Augustana (Ill.) 377. Northern Iowa finished 14th with 475 and Minnesota State-Mankato was 21st with 625. Wayne Sanders of Illinois-Circle was fi h, Chuck Smead of Humboldt (Cal.) finished sixth, John Sheeham of California-Davis seventh, Dave White of California-Fullerton eighth, Gordon Oliver of Mt. St. Mary’s ninth and Steve Foster of Ashland 10th.

Coach Roger Grooters

NCAA Champion Mike Slack

“It was the best team effort by far this year. We got up front and in good posi on early which inspired the kids to do well because they knew they had a chance at the na onal championship.”

“There was a big mass of guys at the start so I got out in as good a posi on as possible. A er the first half-mile I was in 15th or 20th and just waited to see how things went.”

“It wasn’t the case of a super effort by one individual, but was an outstanding effort by the en re team.” “If one individual had to be singled out it would be Dave Kampa in view of the fact that he had missed most of the season. He did a tremendous job for us.”

“Moynihan took the lead at the three-mile and I followed him un l about the four-mile point in the race. We went up and down one hill and were just going up another when I took the lead. I led him by just a few strides un l there was only a half mile le in the race. Then I picked up about four seconds on him.”

portunity” exists in North Dakota, and he has challenged the campus community to imagine how NDSU can help shape the state during the next century. “We all know that higher educa on is a powerful way to expand the economy of a state, diversify the tax base and create jobs,” Bresciani said during his 2010 State of the University Address. “While at the same me we honor our historic mission and focus on educa ng students, we also create the new knowledge that leads to new technologies that lead to new businesses that lead to new jobs.”

NDSU: yesterday and today The state’s first land-grant university was established as North Dakota Agricultural College on March 8, 1890, and organized for educa onal work on Oct. 15, 1890. President Horace E. Stockbridge and a five-member faculty welcomed the first class of 30 students as they took a winter agricultural course. Old

2010-11 BISON TRACK&FIELD

When he came to North Dakota State University in the summer of 2001, Gene Taylor inherited a department surrounded by a whirlwind of ques ons. In his first year as the director of athle cs at North Dakota State, Taylor was asked to spearhead a comprehensive study and evalua on of the Bison athle c department. He has guided the athle cs program through the unpredictable waters of reclassifica on to NCAA Division I from Division II. One of most important pieces of the transi on was securing conference affilia ons for all 16 sports. The Bison are currently members of The Summit League, Missouri Valley Football Conference and Western Wrestling Conference. Taylor also played an instrumental part of forming the Great West Football Conference in February 2004, an affilia on that gave the Bison football program an immediate home in Division I. He served as chair of the coaches commi ee. Also on the reclassifica on checklist: fundraising. Taylor spearheaded an increase in the Bison athle cs budget, which has more than doubled from $5 million in his first year to almost $12.5 million for the 2008-09 season. He was recognized for his success by the Na onal Associa on of Collegiate Directors of Athle cs in June 2008. Taylor was one of 29 recipients of the AstroTurf AD of the Year award as the Football Championship Subdivision Central Region winner. A student assistant to the associate athle c director in his undergraduate days at Arizona State University, Taylor came to NDSU a er a 15-year s nt at Navy (19862001) as an administra ve assistant, assistant cket manager, cket manager, assistant athle c director for ckets and opera ons, and associate athle c director. Taylor is a 1980 business management graduate of Arizona State, and he received his master’s degree in sports administra on in 1985 from St. Thomas University in Florida.

His tenure at Navy included serving as the commissioner of the five-team Collegiate Sprint Football League that includes Army, Navy, Penn, Princeton and Cornell. Taylor and his wife, Cathy, are the parents of a daughter, Casey, and a son, Jared.

North Dakota State University is unconditionally committed to NCAA rules and regulations. As an NCAA member institution, we must be responsible for ensuring that everyone abides by those rules. There is no margin for unethical behavior.

WHO IS A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE?

54

A prospective student-athlete, commonly known as a “prospect,” is any individual who has started classes for the 9th grade. In addition, student-athletes enrolled in preparatory school or two-year colleges are considered prospects. Ultimately, a student remains a prospect until enrollment at a four-year collegiate institution. It is possible for a younger student-athlete to be a prospect so it is a good idea to treat all athletes as prospects until they enroll. WHO CAN RECRUIT FOR NORTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY? Only North Dakota State University coaches who successfully complete the annual NCAA Coaches Certificate Exam, which tests their knowledge of NCAA recruitment legislation, are permitted to be involved in the recruiting process. As a booster, you are specifically prohibited from:  Making any recruiting contacts with prospects or their relatives. This includes telephone calls, letters, e-mails, and facsimiles, along with any face-to-face contact either on or off campus.  Assisting NDSU coaches by picking up transcripts, films, or any other information pertaining to a prospect’s ability from the prospect’s educational

With your assistance and cooperation, we believe we can continue to represent the university with integrity, the highest of ethical standards, and the belief in doing what is right. Whether you are an alum, donor, booster, or friend of Bison Athletics, the university is grateful for your support. Together we can accomplish the common goal of ensuring a positive experience for all student-athletes. NDSU is subject to penalties for all violations committed by any alum, donor, booster or friend.

institution.  Providing a benefit to high school, prep school or community college coaches. NCAA RULES REGARDING THE INTERNET The internet is considered similar to e-mail, telephone calls, or general correspondence. Therefore, it should not be used by boosters to contact prospects, their families, or their coaches. Participation in “chat rooms” with prospects is strictly prohibited. NCAA RULES REGARDING BOOSTER INVOLVEMENT WITH PROSPECTS  You may not provide financial aid or benefit of any kind (e.g., clothing, special discounts, lodging, meals, transportation, tickets, loans of money) to prospects or their relatives.  You may not contact a prospective student-athlete to congratulate him/her on signing a National Letter of Intent to attend NDSU.  You may not provide transportation or arrange for payment of transportation costs for a prospect or his/ her relatives or friends to visit campus.  You may not earmark funds nor pay for specific prospects to attend an NDSU summer camp.  You may not employ or arrange for employment of a prospect before the completion of his/her senior year. After graduation, a booster may employ a prospect as long as compensation is for work actually performed and at a rate commensurate with experience and the going rate.  You may not provide anything to a prospect or the prospect’s family or friends without prior approval from the Compliance Office. NCAA RULES REGARDING BOOSTER INVOLVEMENT WITH ENROLLED STUDENT-ATHLETES  You may not pay for or arrange for payment of room, board, or any type of transportation at any time for currently enrolled student-athletes, their relatives, or their friends.  You may not provide student-athletes with any sort of extra benefit, which refers to any special arrangement provided a student-athlete or his/her relatives or friends with the benefit unavailable to the general student population.  You may not provide student-athletes with any

special discounts, payment arrangements (e.g., cosigning a loan), credits on a purchase (e.g., airline ticket, clothing), or services (e.g., dry cleaning, transportation).  You may not allow student-athletes to use your telephone or make free calls.  You may not provide awards or gifts to studentathletes for any reason. This also prohibits honorariums for speaking engagements. All awards to studentathletes must meet all NCAA legislation and be approved by the Compliance Office.  You may not entertain student-athletes or their families and friends. You may not even buy them a cup of coffee or a can of soda. The only exception to this is that you may, on an occasional basis, provide a student-athlete or team (not family members or friends) with a meal. The meal can be catered, but it must be in your home.  You may not use the name or picture of a studentathlete to advertise a commercial product.  You may not purchase complimentary admissions from a current student-athlete.  You may not provide an honorarium to a studentathlete for speaking engagement. NOTE: These rules apply throughout the studentathlete’s entire enrollment at NDSU. WHAT CAN YOU DO?  Forward information about prospects to the appropriate NDSU coaching staff member.  View a prospect’s athletics contest on your own initiative, provided you do not contact the prospect or his/her relatives, coach, principal, or counselor in an attempt to evaluate the academic or athletic abilities of the prospect. You are responsible for all incurred costs or fees at a contest.  Speak to a prospect on the telephone ONLY if the prospect initiates the call. You are not permitted to have a recruiting conversation, but you may exhibit normal civility. Under such circumstances, you must refer questions about the athletics program to the athletics department staff.  Employ a prospect or student-athlete, provided permission has been granted by the athletics department. The student-athlete will ask you to provide employment information to the athletics department prior to employment.
