2013 Season Preview The Kangaroos enter 2013 looking to build off a 13-11 Summit League finish and 27-30 overall record last season, which led to a second consecutive Summit League Tournament berth. To get there, Kansas City won seven out of its last nine league games, including a sweep at Western Illinois on the final weekend of the regular season to earn the fourth and final seed. After suffering a 5-0 loss to the regular season and eventual tournament champions Bison in the opening round, the Kangaroos bounced back with a 10-0 win over Southern Utah in five innings to keep their season alive. Later in the tournament, Kansas City’s season came to an end with a 9-0 loss in six innings to the No. 2 seeded Fort Wayne Mastodons. Despite losing 10 players from last season, including the best hitter in program history, Kaelene Curry, the ‘Roos return several key pieces, headlined by pitcher Deanna Friese, outfielder/pitcher Emily Ott, catcher Caitlin Christopher, infielder/ outfielder Marlee Maples, pitcher Cinda Ramos and infielder Chelsea Hartwig. As for the newcomers, a total of 10 freshmen will see time in a Blue & Gold uniform this season. THE INFIELD Kansas City’s infield will face a tough task in 2013 with shortstop Kaelene Curry, second baseman Kelly Fischer, third baseman Megan Ussary and first baseman Danielle Bennefeld all graduating this past year.

Luckily, senior Chelsea Hartwig is back for the ‘Roos to provide plenty experience and leadership to the group. After sitting out 2011 due to injury, Hartwig started 56 games at first base and as a designated hitter in 2012. At the plate, she batted .245 with 36 hits, 21 RBI, one home run and a team-high 10 doubles, while recording a team-high 212 putouts with eight assists and one error for a .995 fielding percentage. Currently, she is four home runs away from becoming the program’s all-time leader in that department. Sophomore Marlee Maples, meanwhile, will look to capitalize off a solid freshman campaign where she appeared in 50 games with 46 starts. Seeing time at multiple positions, Maples finished fourth on the team in batting (.250) with 34 hits, two home runs and 20 RBI. The Spring, Texas native, also recorded a team-high three triples and went a perfect 4-for-4 in the stolen base department. After appearing in nine games and starting twice, sophomore Kristi Lee will see an increase in playing time in 2013, while freshmen Liz Broyles, Kelsey Dean, Jenna Rangel, Katie Kelley, Katie Petersen and Maddie Garton will provide depth to the group. THE OUTFIELD Despite being slowed by a knee injury late in the season, senior Emily Ott started 41 games in 2012 and finished second on the team in batting (.322), slugging percentage (.390) and onbase percentage (.406). Additionally, the Des Plaines, Ill., native led the squad in RBI (23), had a team best eight-game hit streak and earned

College Sports Madness Player of the Week (Feb. 28) for the first time in her career. Heading into 2013, Ott is five RBI away from becoming the program’s all-time leader. The other returning outfielder is sophomore Bri Wyatt. Appearing in 46 games, including 20 starts, Wyatt batted .182 and finished third on the team in stolen bases with 11. Freshmen Katie Cruse, Kendra Leach, Brooke Parker, Alexandra Friloux, and Katie Petersen, meanwhile, will battle for playing time throughout the season. BEHIND THE PLATE This group is spearheaded by the team’s lone All-Summit League honoree (Second Team) from last season, sophomore Caitlin Christopher. In her first season in a Kangaroo uniform, Christopher led Kansas City in slugging (.405) and home runs (3), while finishing second in doubles (8) and third in batting (.270). In Summit League action, she led the Kangaroos in hitting (.333) and slugging (.533) with 20 hits, six doubles, two home runs and 13 RBI. Defensively, the Denton, Texas native registered a .984 fielding percentage and caught six out of 26 runners stealing for a .187 caughtstealing percentage. As for Lindsey Davis, she will add senior leadership and depth, while Alexandra Friloux will contribute to the squad as a catcher and an outfielder.

IN THE CIRCLE Sitting as the program’s all-time leader in wins (53), appearances (114), innings pitched (597.0), starts (91), strikeouts (731), strikeouts per game (8.57) and winning percentage (.588), senior Deanna Friese will look to close her stellar career on a high note. After winning The Summit League Pitcher of the Year award in 2011, Friese went 13-16 with 3.00 ERA in 40 games (33 starts) and 208.0 innings pitched in 2012. At season’s end, she led the league in strikeouts (213) for the second straight time to go along with a team-high five shutouts, 22 complete games and three saves. In addition, Friese earned Summit League Pitcher of the Week honors twice (Feb. 20 and April 9) and was named College Sports Madness Pitcher of the Week (April 30). Sophomore Cinda Ramos, meanwhile, went 13-13 with a teambest 2.81 ERA in 34 appearances (23 starts) and 174.1 innings pitched. She also finished the season with 14 complete games, two shutouts, one save, and 64 strikeouts. At the plate, the Olathe, Kan., native hit .167 with five hits, including a double and five RBI to go along with two runs and two walks. Throughout 2012, Ramos earned Summit League Pitcher of the Week (Feb. 27) and was named to the Kentucky Invitational (March 19) and Missouri Coaches vs. Cancer All-Tournament Team’s (March 5). On Kansas City’s all-time career list, she is seventh in ERA (2.81), ninth in wins (13), fifth in winning percentage (.500) and tied for first in fewest walks per game (1.04). As for Emily Ott, she will add depth to the Kangaroo pitching staff as she

Meredith Smith

Head Coach • Tennessee, ‘04 • Seventh Season Meredith Smith is entering her seventh season as the head coach of the UMKC softball program. Smith was hired to lead the Kangaroos in July 2006. During the 2012 season, Smith reached the century mark in wins as the Kangaroos finished 13-11 in Summit League play and 27-30 overall record on their way to a league tournament berth. Heading into 2013, Smith holds a 119-183 (.394) overall record throughout her tenure. In 2011, Smith guided the Kangaroos to school records of 38 overall wins and 18 Summit League wins en route to being named The Summit League Coach of the Year. Under her guidance, five ‘Roos were named as all-Summit League performers, including Kaelene Curry and Deanna Friese who were named The Summit League Player of the Year and Pitcher of the Year, respectively. The duo also garnered national recognition under Smith’s watch, as both were named to the Louisville Slugger/ NFCA Division I all-Central Region Second Team. Academically, nine ‘Roos were named to the Commissioner’s List of Academic Excellence and 12 were honored as Summit League Winter/Spring Academic all-League performers, including seven as Distinguished Scholars, while Curry was selected as a Capital One Second Team Academic AllAmerican. During the 2010 season, Smith improved UMKC’s win total for the third consecutive season, leading the squad to a 22-26 overall record and a 12-10 mark in Summit League play. The ‘Roos finished in a tie for fourth place in the regular season standings and narrowly missed out on advancing to The Summit League Tournament by percentage points. The team’s 22 victories were tied for the third most in a single season in the program’s 23 seasons of competition on the diamond. Smith’s squad picked up its play late in the 2010 campaign, as the squad posted a 14-4 record over the final 18 games. One of the victories was a 6-5 triumph at UNLV, which is one of the signature wins during Smith’s tenure in Blue and Gold. Under her direction, a trio of Kangaroos - Kelly Fischer, Anna Sokolik and Emily Ott - garnered First Team all-Summit League honors. The ‘Roos also had a total of three student-athletes earn Summit League Player/Pitcher of the Week honors during the regular season. Smith’s squad also continued its excellence in the classroom, as 11 student-athletes were named to The Summit League Winter/Spring Academic all-League team, while eight were tabbed to the Commissioner’s List of Academic Excellence. In 2009, Smith led the team to a 20-34 overall record, as the Kangaroos finished 10-14 in The Summit League, which were the most league wins for the program since the 2003 season. During the season, Smith led the ‘Roos on a six-game winning streak that began on April 4 against IPFW and ended on April 11 against North Dakota. Under Smith’s guidance, Kelly Fischer and Chelsea Hartwig earned second team all-league honors and Samantha Hurst was named The Summit League Pitcher of the Week. Hartwig also set a new UMKC school record for most home runs hit in a single season at eight. Off the field, Smith had 13 players named to The Summit League Winter/Spring Academic all-League team and six players named to the Commissioner’s List of Academic Excellence. In 2008, UMKC finished with an 8-31 overall record, as the squad doubled its win total from the 2007 season, despite fielding a team with a total of 11 underclassmen (nine freshmen). The team’s winning percentage of .205 was the best for the program since the 2003 season. Smith moved to Kansas City after serving as the Director of Softball Operations at Tennessee during the 2005 and 2006 seasons. In this capacity, she was responsible for developing, organizing and distributing recruiting materials, while also coordinating the team’s travel arrangements. During the 2006 season, Smith helped guide the Volunteers to the SEC Championship as well as a berth in the Women’s College World Series. Prior to being promoted as a member of the UT staff, Smith served as the team’s manager in 2004-05. She handled various administrative duties. The Knoxville, Tenn., native has also been a camp instructor for the Volunteers since 2001. As a student-athlete, Smith played collegiately at Centre College in Danville, Ky., in 2000. During that season, she tied an NCAA record for most doubles in a single game with five and picked up all-conference honors and earned a league player of the week award. She then spent one semester at East Tennessee State before transferring to UT, where she was involved with the Panhellenic Council of Pi Beta Phi and Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society. Smith graduated cum laude from Tennessee in 2004 with a bachelor’s degree in exercise science. She also holds her master’s degree in sports psychology with a minor in sports management.

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

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 ScholarT ship Fund (KASF) supports 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.
