2015 UMKC Men’s Tennis Media Guide

Kendell Hale Head Coach (8th Season) Northwest Missouri St., 1990 Kendell Hale is in his eighth season as the head coach of the UMKC men’s and women’s tennis program. Overall, the 2014-15 season will be Hale’s 21st as a collegiate head coach, where he has compiled a 379-296 overall combined men’s and women’s record. On the women’s side, he has a record of 60-92 at UMKC, while boasting a 84-70 mark with the men. Hale has orchestrated an amazing turnaround with the men’s and women’s tennis programs since joining the department in 2008. He has guided both the men’s and women’s squads to numerous school-record win totals and has produced four conference regular season titles, four conference tournament crowns and four NCAA Tournament appearances. He was also selected at the 2010 USTPA National Coach of the Year for his turnaround effort, as well as 2009 USPTA Missouri Valley College Coach of the Year, the 2011 Summit League Men’s Coach of the Year, and 2013 Summit League Women’s Coach of the Year. In seven seasons at the helm, Hale has coached 25 all-league honorees on the men’s side and 14 all-league selections on the women’s side. He’s also coached three Conference Players of the Year and three League Newcomers of the Year. He has also coached the five winningest players in school history on the women’s side, and four of the five top career win leaders on the men’s side. MEN The 2014 season was a transition of sorts, with UMKC joining the WAC and a roster full of inexperienced players. Senior Tomas Patino was the leader in a lineup that featured four freshmen. The squad advanced to the league tournament semifinals, and had Patino on the All-WAC team, as well as Mike Psarros. The 2013 version of the ‘Roos won the Summit League regular season title for the fourth straight year, with a perfect 5-0 mark in conference play, before sweeping through the Summit League Tournament for the third straight year to advance to the NCAA Tournament, where they fell to No. 1 ranked UCLA. There were four all-league selections in Nino Hasandedic, Grant Fleming, Abdul Alawadhi, and Tomas Patino. In 2012, the squad overcame numerous injuries early in the season and captured a share of its third consecutive regular season Summit League title, while hosting the conference tournament and storming through the bracket without dropping a point in wins over South Dakota State and IUPUI to claim the league tournament crown and advance to the NCAA Tournament. UMKC had four all-conference selections, as well as the Player (Grant Fleming) and Newcomer (Tomas Patino) of the Year in the league. In 2011, he led the men to the Summit League regular season and tournament titles (went 16-7, 6-0), while helping the women to a school record win total (12) and an appearance in the championship match of the league tournament for the first time in school history. Nino Hasandedic was named the men’s Summit League Newcomer and Player of the Year as well, and was named League Coach of the Year for his efforts. During the 2010 season, Hale led the men’s team to a 17-7 overall record, which included a school record 11-match winning streak. The 17 victories were the most in a single season in the record books. The squad finished a perfect 6-0 in league play during the regular season

without dropping a single team point, as it claimed The Summit League regular season title. The ‘Roos advanced to the league tournament final for the second straight year before being upset by third-seeded Oral Roberts. Hale’s student-athletes produced unprecedented success on the court, as senior Patrick Smith was named The Summit League Player of the Year. Smith along with Bret Berryman, Serge Ristivojevic and Gustavo Guerin also received all-Summit League honors. Ristivojevic broke the school record for single season singles victories (18), while Smith and Berryman set the single season doubles mark (18). In 2009, Hale guided the men’s squad to a 14-7 overall record and a 5-1 mark in Summit League play. After finishing as the regular season runner-up, Hale led UMKC to a Summit League Tournament title and an NCAA Tournament berth with a tight 4-2 victory over topseeded Oral Roberts. The tournament final win gave the ‘Roos their 14th victory of the season, which tied the then school record for single season victories. A trio of players earned all-league honors, while Bret Berryman was tabbed The Summit League Newcomer of the Year. Under Hale’s guidance, Patrick Smith closed out the 2009 season with six straight victories to give him a total of 14 singles wins on the year. The 14 victories were tied for the second most wins in the single season record books. Hale also led the ‘Roos to unprecedented success at the Wilson/ITA Central Region Championships, as he coached players to the Round of 16 for the first time in school history. WOMEN Hale has made great strides with the women’s program in seven seasons. 2014 was the first for UMKC in the WAC and it had to cope with the loss of two of the top players in school history. The squad advanced to the league tournament semifinals despite that, and was led individually by Dimitra Stavrianakou, earning All-WAC honors, as well as Amelie Amsallem who was an All-WAC doubles pick. In 2013, UMKC battled injuries and finished second in the league, before advancing to the Summit League Championship match for the second time ever. The squad fell 4-3 in a hard-fought contest in the championship. Three players, Laura Bouet, Eva Dalvai, and Dimitra Stavrianakou all earned all-league honors, while Hale was named the Summit League Coach of the Year. 2012 saw the ‘Roos again break the school record for wins with 13, and they secured their first winning record since 1991-92 at 13-12. Laura Bouet and freshman Maddie Schulte both earned all-league honors, while the team boasted the top four individual career match winners in school history. In 2011 the team set another school record with 12 wins, and advanced to its first ever Summit League Tournament Championship match. Laura Bouet was honored with all-conference accolades. In 2010, Hale guided the ‘Roos to a school record 10 victories and a 6-2 mark in Summit League play. UMKC finished third in the regular season standings to qualify for the league tournament for the first time since only the top four teams advanced. A trio of student-athletes - Laura Bouet, Eva Dalvai and Jillian Yakominich - each earned all-Summit League honors.

In 2009, UMKC posted five wins and finished with a 4-4 mark in Summit League play. The five victories were the most for the program since the 1999-00 season, while the four league victories were the most in a single season in school history. In Hale’s first season in 2008, he led the ‘Roos to three victories, one of which was a 7-0 triumph over Centenary that snapped the program’s 58-match losing streak. CAREER The Kangaroos also have excelled in the classroom under Hale’s watch. The men’s team earned ITA all-Academic Team honors in 2008 and 2012 and the women’s squad received the distinction in 2008, 2009 and 2012. Additionally, 11 student-athletes have been selected as ITA Scholar Athletes, 50 have been named to Academic All-League teams and 34 were Commissioner’s List of Academic Excellence honorees. Prior to becoming a Kangaroo, Hale spent 13 seasons as the head coach at Rockhurst University, where he guided the Hawks to nine NCAA Tournament appearances in 10 years as an NCAA Division II university. He led Rockhurst to the Midwest Region Championships from 1995-97, and he coached six top-30 Division II student-athletes. His team finished the 1997 season as the 12th ranked team in the nation in the NAIA, which led to him being named the NAIA Midwest Region Coach of the Year. Hale has been honored at every level since joining the coaching profession. He is the only coach to be named the USPTA College Coach of the Year five times (2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2009), and he has been selected as the Wilson/ITA Coach of the Year on three occasions (2001, 2002, 2007). In 2003, Hale was also selected as the NCAA Central Region Coach of the Year. Hale also was selected as the USPTA Coach of the Year in 2001, the USPTA Missouri Club Professional of the Year in 1998, and he was the USA Tennis Coordinator for Kansas City in 1997. Not only did Hale have success on the court, but he also was successful in the classroom as well, as his teams at Rockhurst captured eight Team Academic all-America awards. In addition to his duties with the Hawks, Hale has served as the tennis director at Oakwood Country Club since 2004. From 1997-99, he was the head tennis professional at the Plaza Tennis Center, where the venue was named the Facility of the Year in 1998. Before going to the PTC, Hale served as the head assistant tennis professional/ junior coordinator at Kansas City Country Club from 1991-95. Hale has also been a United States Professional Tennis Association board member for 10 years, and he is the USPTA tester for the Kansas City region. Hale’s playing career began at Paris Junior College in Paris, Texas, where he was ranked 43rd in the NJCAA national rankings. After a successful two-year stint, Hale played two seasons at Northwest Missouri State, where he helped the Bearcats to a No. 12 ranking in the NCAA Division II poll. He was the only NWMSU player to win a MIAA conference title in 1990 and during that same year, he was the conference doubles runner-up. Hale earned his bachelor of science degree in psychology/sociology from Northwest Missouri State in 1990. He then earned his masters of religious education from the Midwestern Seminary in 1997.

The $500,000 renovation plan called for new basketball/volleyball court flooring and basketball standards and volleyball nets to be installed in the existing facility. The current skylights in the building will also be altered, which will allow for modified lighting to be put into place. The entire Old Swinney interior was updated and scoreboards were installed.

FACTS After completing its 51st year of intercollegiate competition, the Western Athletic Conference continues to evolve and feature some of the nation’s best programs. One thing that remains unchanged is the persistent nature of the schools in the WAC to advance their programs to contend at the top levels of the NCAA. The WAC provides its student-athletes the chance to travel to scenic destinations and gain exposure in some of the nation’s most diverse markets and largest metropolitan cities. In addition, the WAC’s student-athletes work to achieve the highest levels of success with the academic support of their respective institutions. The WAC has experienced tremendous success over the years. In men’s basketball, the WAC has sent at least two teams to the NCAA Tournament in 24 of the past 29 seasons. In baseball, the WAC has boasted two national champions since 2003. In women’s basketball, the conference has had at least two teams qualify for the NCAA Tournament 10 times in 22 seasons, with a record five teams in 1998. The WAC also sent teams to three BCS football bowl games since 2006. In 2013-14, the WAC will create a new digital network to give fans streaming internet access to many of its regular season games and postseason championships including volleyball, soccer, swimming and diving, basketball, softball and baseball. The WAC is the sixth oldest among the nation’s 11 Division I-A conferences. Its history traces back to July 27, 1962, when the original six-team league of Arizona, Arizona State, Brigham Young, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming began competition. The first championship was held in November 1962, when Arizona won the men’s cross country title and New Mexico followed with the first WAC football title. Arizona finished second in the NCAA College World Series and, less than three years later, Arizona State claimed the league’s first NCAA title when the Sun Devils won the College World Series trophy. Fresno State was the last WAC school to earn an NCAA team title when it won the College World Series in 2008. Since 1962, several changes have occurred. UTEP and Colorado State became members in September 1967, while Arizona and Arizona State withdrew on June 30, 1978. The WAC then added San Diego State (1978), Hawai‘i (1979) and Air Force (1980). Before 1990, the WAC sponsored championships only in men’s sports. However, a merger with the High Country Athletic Conference formed a single conference under one administrative structure, and the 1990-91 athletic year was the first in which both men and women competed under the WAC name. Fresno State was added in 1992, and then in 1996, the women’s programs from Air Force and Hawai‘i along with six new schools (UNLV, Rice, San Jose State, SMU, TCU and Tulsa) came into the WAC. Air Force, Brigham Young, Colorado State, UNLV, New Mexico, San Diego State, Utah and Wyoming withdrew on June 30, 1999. Nevada (2000), Boise State (2001) and Louisiana Tech (2001) were added while TCU withdrew following the 2000-01 season. In 2005, Idaho, New Mexico State and Utah State joined the WAC after Rice, SMU, UTEP and Tulsa withdrew. Boise State withdrew prior to the 2011-12 season. In 2012, the WAC added Denver, Seattle U, UT Arlington, UTSA and Texas State. The current membership began on July 1, 2013 when the WAC added Bakersfield, Chicago State, Grand Canyon, Kansas City, UTPA and Utah Valley to join Idaho, New Mexico State and Seattle U. The new institutions replace withdrawing members, Denver, Louisiana Tech, San Jose State, Utah State, UT Arlington, UTSA and Texas State. The WAC has had just six commissioners in its history. Paul Brechler was named the first leader of the conference and held the position from 1962-1968. He was followed by Wiles Hallock (1968-71), Stan Bates (1971-80), Dr. Joe Kearney (1980-94), Karl Benson (1994-2012) and current commissioner Jeff Hurd (2012-present). Presently, the WAC crowns team and individual champions in 19 sports – nine men’s and 10 women’s. For the men, there are championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor track and field and outdoor track and field. Championships for women are held in basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field and volleyball. The WAC office has been located in the Denver area since the conference’s inception with the exception of a two-year stay in Phoenix from 1964-66. Debra

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, UMKC 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 The first Kangaroo emblem was deleted, sparking a tremendous amount of incarnation debate. of Kasey Kangaroo

As the debate wore on, interest from the campus community began was inked by to wane. It looked as if KCU would not adopt a mascot after all. But Marceline, Mo., native in 1937, two events would combine to indelibly link the Kangaroo Walt Disney, with the University and give the mascot a name. and featured the KCU

mascot During the student government elections in the spring semester, a the CO-OP Party adopted the Kangaroo as its official mascot, naming alongside somewhat him Kasey. With a landslide victory in April behind the slogan “Kasey more famous fits KC”, the first part of the foundation was laid. During the same rodent. 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 in 2008. With the help of local advertising agency Bernstein-Rein, UMKC 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 UMKC’s mission to be an outstanding urban university while keeping mindful of the traditions established in 1937.
