Doubles

The ‘Roos will throw out a variety of lineups in doubles play, but the duo of Alawadhi and Patino proved to be a formidable one in the ITA Regionals during the fall season. They advanced all the way to the quarterfinals, the

deepest run in Kansas City history at the tournament. Several others will see action in the doubles pool, with Head Coach Kendell Hale experimenting to find the right mixes.

The Schedule

Kansas City will again challenge itself in the nonconference this season, facing several midwest powers in Drake, Arkansas, Wichita State, Wisconsin, Air Force and Green Bay. Kansas City will also get to travel with trips to Wisconsin to begin the season, and a spring break week in Florida, where they will play at least three matches.

The Evolution of the Kangaroo

W

hen choosing a mascot, the discussion usually starts with three main categories - predatory animals, historical or regional figures, or humans that represent power and strength - and ends with a collection of the usual suspects. Thanks to Walt Disney, The Kansas City Star and the Kansas City Zoo, Kansas City has a very unique mascot, but how exactly does the Kangaroo fit? As it turns out, quite well. In 1936, the issue of a mascot was first brought up by the editors of The University the campus newspaper for Kansas City University. Although there were no organized intercollegiate athletics teams at the time, the newspaper staff felt that KCU’s debate team - and more importantly the school itself - deserved a unique identity. During that same year, the Kansas City Zoo purchased a pair of baby Kangaroos, and The Kansas City Star lit the fire with an article titled “Kangaroo May Go To KCU ... Student Editors Believe University Should Have A Symbol.” Others on campus were not as enthusiastic. The editors of The Crataegus - the University’s yearbook - thought that a Kangaroo was not an appropriate symbol for KCU. A proposed feature page in the 1936-37 yearbook for the Kangaroo emblem was deleted, sparking a tremendous amount of debate. As the debate wore on, interest from the campus community began to wane. It looked as if KCU would not adopt a mascot after all. But in 1937, two events would combine to indelibly link the Kangaroo with the University and give the mascot a name.

The first incarnation of Kasey Kangaroo was inked by Marceline, Mo., native Walt Disney, and featured the KCU mascot alongside a somewhat more famous rodent.

During the student government elections in the spring semester, the CO-OP Party adopted the Kangaroo as its official mascot, naming him Kasey. With a landslide victory in April behind the slogan “Kasey fits KC”, the first part of the foundation was laid. During the same month the first issue of KCU’s humor magazine - The Kangaroo - was published, with a kangaroo gracing the cover. Six months later, a kangaroo made another appearance on the cover of The Kangaroo, and although it wasn’t a solo appearance, it put a quick end to the debate over whether a kangaroo was an appropriate mascot for KCU. Missouri native and famed cartoonist Walt Disney provided the artwork for the cover illustration, which featured Mickey Mouse shaking hands with Kasey Kangaroo. In a matter of a few years, The Kangaroo thrived while The Crataegus floundered, with the latter eventually folding. The Kangaroo became the University’s yearbook and the Kangaroo became the official mascot of Kansas City University. Kasey has undergone several changes over the years, with the most recent metamorphosis led by Kansas City Director of Athletics Tim Hall. With the help of local advertising agency Bernstein-Rein, Kansas City developed a set of new athletics marks in the spring of 2008. After a community vote, the new Kangaroo logo was unveiled in May. With its aggressive snarl, the new Kangaroo capitalizes on Kansas City’s mission to be an outstanding urban university while keeping mindful of the traditions established in 1937.

Director of Athletics Tim Hall

Director of Athletics

Tim Hall was named the Kansas City Director of Athletics on Feb. 14, 2007. In this role, he serves as a member of the Chancellor’s executive cabinet, and is responsible for leading the strategic direction in growing the university’s intercollegiate athletics program. Since Hall accepted the post in 2007, Kansas City has seen competitive improvement every year. Kansas City has won Summit League Championships in men’s soccer, men’s golf, men’s tennis and softball. Last academic year, all four of those Kansas City sports were named favorites to win the Summit League, with three others picked in the top three. The women’s basketball team posted its first 20-win season since 1991-92 and its second ever trip to the Summit League Tournament Championship game. Last fall, the women’s soccer team advanced to the conference tournament for the first time in school history, while setting a school record for wins. Women’s tennis also set a record for wins last year, and advanced to its first ever Summit League Tournament Final appearance the year before. Kansas City’s athletics department staffing has grown during Hall’s tenure as part of an effort to catch up to other Summit League schools. Those additions have made Kansas City more competitive in recruiting student-athletes, while providing fundraising support for many facility improvements and agreements in each sport. The successes were reinforced by the NCAA in 2009, as Kansas City Athletics received full NCAA certification without condition. The certification showed that the University is operating its athletics program in substantial conformity with operating principles adopted by the NCAA Division I membership and is valid for the next 10 years. Hall led the ‘Roos to their most successful year since 2000 in 2008-09 and the ‘Roos continued excelling in 2009-10. Kansas City claimed a pair of Summit League titles in men’s soccer and men’s tennis, while also earning the runnerup nod in both men’s and women’s golf, which led to a record 2009 finish in the annual Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup. During the 2010 campaign, the men’s tennis team won The Summit League regular season title and the men’s golf program was the league runner-up. This helped the men’s teams finish fourth in the Dr. William Steinbrecher Men’s All Sports Award standings, the best showing since 2001-02. Overall, the ‘Roos moved up to sixth place in the Commissioner’s Cup standings, which was the highest finish since 2006-07. In the classroom, the department posted a grade point average of better than 3.20 this past year. It had a 3.10 cumulative grade point in the spring 2010 semester and eight programs finished with at least a 3.0 GPA. Additionally, Kansas City finished with a 958.7 APR average and the volleyball team received the NCAA public recognition award. Internally, Hall has been hard at work to align the department with peer institutions and the NCAA. He restructured the rules compliance office to be more in line with NCAA rules and the Student-Athlete Support Services Office to better assist and prepare Kangaroo studentathletes. He also continues to work with new Kansas City Chancellor Leo Morton to craft the athletics’ strategic plan in concert with the University’s new strategic goals. From a fund raising standpoint, Kangaroo Athletics have never been better. In 2008, Kansas City received a $5 million pledge from the Stanley H. Durwood Foundation, the largest gift in Athletics’ and the fourth-largest gift in University history. The resulting Stanley H. Durwood Soccer Stadium and Recreational Field opened in August 2009 and is among the premier soccer facilities in the Midwest region. Additional facility improvements have included revamped locker rooms and lounges for men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball and the retro-fitting of Old Swinney Gymnasium, which provides the basketball and volleyball programs with a first-class practice facility. The project was funded through $500,000 of private support. Hall also was instrumental in the renovation of the Swinney Recreation Center with the installation of new seatback bleachers and new scoreboards, which enhances the venue for the men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball programs. The renovation allows the men’s basketball squad to move its games back on campus full-time for the 2010-11 season. Hall is also in the midst of a partnership with the Kansas City Parks Department to build a sports complex that will house both indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a 200-meter indoor track and a softball field. On an annual basis, the Kangaroo Athletics Scholarship Fund, which was rebranded prior to the 2007-08 school year, has posted three straight years of 50 percent growth, while donor participation is up over 200 percent. He also increased the department’s total sponsorships and gift-in-kind assistance to over $1.5 million and cash and trade sponsorships have increased 265 percent since 2008. Additionally, Hall has increased Kansas City’s external support by 45 percent over fiscal year 2009 from $1.6 to $2.4 million. Hall also has also reconnected with over 200 former ‘Roos with the former student-athlete association. In the community, Hall has been active in an effort to get more community leaders involved in the Athletics Department. Hall restructured the Athletics Foundation Board in 2009 by adding representatives from a number of Kansas City-based businesses such as Cerner, Kansas City Southern Railways, Lathrop Gage LLC, and Mark One Electric. New partnerships have come quickly to Kangaroo Athletics, including television (Niles Media Group) and radio (810 WHB) agreements that ensure a continued presence within the Kansas City region. Renowned local advertising firm Bernstein-Rein produced a redesigned athletics logo and graphics set, while additional contractual agreements have also been signed with adidas, Truman Medical Centers, Pepsi, T-Mobile and JumpTV to better serve the department’s student-athletes. Hall continues to bring leadership to Kansas City and The Summit League. In addition to his role on the Chancellor’s Executive Cabinet, Hall serves on The Summit League Joint Council leadership committee and sits on the league’s men’s basketball scheduling committee and the men’s and women’s soccer coaches committees. Additionally, Hall is also in the second of a three-year term on the NACDA Division 1-AAA Executive Committee and serves on the NCAA volleyball rules committee. Hall came to Kansas City after serving as the Associate Athletics Director for Development at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, from 2003-07. While at KSU, he was a member of the athletics senior administrative staff, working in all phases of departmental management including game and personnel contracts, scheduling, budget, policy and strategic planning. In this role, Hall created and implemented a comprehensive restructuring of the athletic advancement unit, resulting in the creation of the Office of Athletic Advancement. He increased fundraising by more than 33 percent, helped secure the largest gift to date in the history of KSU athletics, a $1.53 million gift for the baseball stadium renovation, and raised more than $16.1 million. Prior to moving back to Ohio, Hall worked at Eastern Kentucky University from 2000-03. Hall began work as the collegiate Director for Development in 2000 before being promoted to the Director of Major Gifts and Special Projects in 2001. In this capacity, he raised over $4.6 million for the university, including $1.3 million for athletics. Hall also served as the Assistant Director of Development at Saint Xavier University in Chicago from September 1999 through October 2000. At Saint Xavier, Hall managed fundraising efforts for a $13 million Athletic and Convention Center. He also managed the President’s Club, and developed and implemented the Cougar Club, an athletics affinity group. Before moving to Chicago, Hall worked at Youngstown State University as an Assistant Director of Athletic Development from 1997-99. In this role, he helped the university complete its successful $26 million capital campaign. Hall also began his collegiate career at YSU, serving in the school’s athletic marketing and promotions office. Hall earned his bachelor’s degree in sports administration from the University of Toledo in 1994. He then received his master’s degree in sports administration from Kent State University in 1998. Hall and his wife, Beth, have four children, Aidan, Aislin, Donovan and Landon, and they reside in Kansas City, Mo.

he Kangaroo Athletics Scholarship Fund (KASF) supports T the student-athletes of Kansas

City through the offsetting of expenses such as scholarships, travel, recruiting, and equipment. As costs continue to rise, support for our student-athletes through the KASF becomes more crucial as we continue to build an elite Summit League athletics department. For the 2012-13 academic year, student-athlete scholarship expenses are expected to include: • Tuition (out-of-state): $17,692 • Room and Board: $10,130 • Tuition (in-state): $6,876 • Books and Fees: $1,612

Cross Country/Track & Field

In addition, over the past year it has become extremely difficult for budgets to keep pace with rising travel and food costs. While athletics must be vigilant in cost containment, we must continue to provide for the best possible student-athlete experience. That is where the KASF donors can play such a tremendous role.
