28 $WKOHWLFV 6FRULQJ %LJ OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY ATHLETICS PRIDES ITSELF ON BEING A STRONG PROGRAM WITH A LEGACY OF ACCOMPLISHED ATHLETES AND PROMISING SCHOLARS. Yesterday & Today Oglethorpe’s sports history includes exceptional moments (like a 1926 win over Georgia Tech in football), memorable teams (like the 1961 men’s basketball team, led by the legendary Coach Pinholster, who played the first integrated college basketball game in Georgia history), and noteworthy individual athletes (like the OU Hall of Fame members listed on the following pages.) Today, Oglethorpe is still basking in the glory of its first-ever national NCAA Championship won by Men’s Golf in 2009 and a trip to the NCAA Final Four by Women’s Basketball in 2008.

k'UHDPV GR FRPH WUXH{ VR NHHS RQ GUHDPLQJy —Frank Anderson, OU baseball coach (1916–44) and “father of Oglethorpe athletics,” as quoted at a 1963 Oglethorpe sports banquet speaking to student-athletes.

But, what could our future hold? As an outstanding university with promising scholar-athletes and tremendous coaches, Oglethorpe has the foundation to be the premier program in its conference. In 2010, 58 Oglethorpe student-athletes were named to the SCAC academic honor roll. Going head-to-head with other SCAC colleges such as Trinity, Rhodes, Sewanee, and Centre, Oglethorpe currently boasts 15 teams—including lacrosse, the latest addition. OU’s head coaches have spent 250 years combined coaching their respective sports. For Oglethorpe’s athletic standing to keep pace with its academic standards is an achievable goal. In spring 2010, the Oglethorpe University Board of Trustees approved five strategic initiatives, one of which focuses on improving campus facilities and infrastructure in ways that support students’ personal, academic, and athletic development. Among those are renovations to Dorough Field House and Schmidt Center, as well as a facility to house locker rooms, coaches’ offices, and fitness areas, complementing improvements already made during the past few years. Looking even further ahead, there’s a need for a stadium and field for lacrosse and soccer, as well as enhancements to the track. By focusing on students’ needs, we hope to enhance the athletic experience for the entire Oglethorpe community. Already, the university has entertained local and national architectural firms with expertise in athletic facilities design and formed a subcommittee of the Board of Trustees’ Buildings and Grounds Committee to review the proposals. Those proposals will continue to be coordinated through the committee, along with initiatives for other important enhancements—a proposed new academic building and new (or renovated) student center. These initiatives set the stage for Oglethorpe to carry on its athletics legacy and pave the way for future Stormy Petrels to take the OU courts and fields.

LACROSSE ,Q WKH 6SLULW RI WKH *DPH Originating in the Native American nations of mid-America, lacrosse played a signiďŹ cant role in community and religious life. Lacrosse was often played to resolve conicts; heal the sick; develop strong, virile men; and prepare for war. Legend tells of games with more than 100 players from different tribes taking turns to play on a ďŹ eld that could stretch for miles. Sometimes the game could last for days, from sunup to sundown. Those who took part did so in the role of warriors, with the goal of bringing glory and honor to themselves and their tribes. The game was said to be played “for the Creatorâ€? or referred to as “The Creator’s Game.â€? (Source: issaquahyouthlacrosse.org)

3OD\ERRN • Lacrosse is played using a small, solid rubber ball and a long-handled racquet called a crosse—or lacrosse stick. • To score, a player must shoot the ball into the opponent’s goal, using the lacrosse stick to catch, carry, and pass the ball to teammates. • Men’s lacrosse uses 10 players—a goalie, three defensemen, three midďŹ elders, and three attack men. • Lacrosse is played on a ďŹ eld that is 110 yards long and 60 yards wide—about the size of a standard soccer ďŹ eld.

2011 Men’s Lacrosse Schedule

• Players are not allowed to tackle like football players. Instead they perform a block called “body checking.â€? Body checking is permitted if the opponent has the ball or is within 5 yards of a loose ball. All body contact must occur from the front or side, above the waist and below the shoulders, and with both hands on the stick. Aggressive body checking is discouraged. • A player may gain possession of the ball by dislodging it from an opponent’s crosse with a stick check, the controlled poking and slapping of the possessive player’s stick and gloved hands.

LUKE APPLING ‘32 THERE ARE 233 PLAYERS ENSHRINED IN THE NATIONAL BASEBALL HALL OF FAME IN COOPERSTOWN, NEW YORK. NO GEORGIA BULLDOGS OR GEORGIA TECH YELLOW JACKETS HAVE BEEN INDUCTED INTO THAT FRATERNITY, BUT ONE STORMY PETREL STANDS AMONG THOSE LEGENDS—OGLETHORPE’S OWN LUKE APPLING. %\ $XVWLQ *LOOLV

Luke Appling was born in High Point, North Carolina, in 1907. He attended high school in the Atlanta area and enrolled at Oglethorpe in 1928. Starting in 1929, Appling played for Coach Frank Anderson’s Stormy Petrels, and in 1930, he was part of arguably the best baseball team ever to play at Oglethorpe. The Stormy Petrels went undefeated in 1930, claiming wins over major college programs such as Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Clemson. That April, Appling hit three home runs against Mercer to lead Oglethorpe to the Southern Intercollegiate Championship. Having impressed the professional scouts, Appling joined the Atlanta Crackers of the Southern League in the summer of 1930. Major League teams clamored for his services, and that fall Appling signed with the Chicago 8 CARILLON | FALL 2010

White Sox of the American League. He made it all the way to the majors in September 1930, making his major league debut a mere five months after suiting up for the Stormy Petrels. Appling played shortstop for the White Sox for 20 seasons, earning seven All-Star Game appearances along the way. He also won two batting titles. The first came in 1936, when he posted an incredible .388 batting average, and the second in 1943, at the relatively advanced age of 36. In 1962, Appling was inducted into the Oglethorpe University Athletic Hall of Fame, as part of its inaugural class. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame two years later. But, he was not done impressing with his athletic talents.

Twenty years later, Appling played in an oldtimers game alongside legends Hank Aaron, Stan Musial, Bob Feller, and Early Wynn. At 75, he was the oldest player in the game. Nevertheless, Appling electrified the crowd by hitting a home run off Braves legend Warren Spahn. Luke Appling passed away in 1991. However, his legacy is secure, and his Hall of Fame career is testament to just how high our Stormy Petrels can fly.

CARRYING A LEGACY: JOSH CARAY ’04 Josh Caray is following in the footsteps of his family of legendary baseball announcers— the late great Skip and Harry Caray. Since graduating in 2004 with a degree in communication and rhetoric studies, Josh worked as a broadcaster and producer for WLAQ radio in Rome, Ga., calling Class A Rome Braves baseball and Rome High School football. He also called the Atlanta Braves Class AAA afďŹ liate, the Gwinnett Braves, and most recently, he handled the play-by-play duties for the International Baseball League’s San Angelo Colts in Texas.

Thinking back to his days at Oglethorpe, Josh credits Dr. Shrikhande’s broadcast communications class for providing a solid introduction into the broadcasting world from a business perspective. Josh says that Oglethorpe helped him to relate to others from different backgrounds and cultures. But not surprisingly, he credits his family for inspiring him to go into a broadcasting career. “Watching my granddad on WGN in Chicago and watching my dad on TBS made me realize how special my family was,â€? remembers Josh. “That passion rubbed off on me. I ďŹ gured if I love it so much, why not make a career out of it?â€?

Josh’s favorite part of a broadcaster’s life is the travel. “I get to see different parts of the country, and being on the road is a time to connect with the team,� says Josh. “When everyone is away from their families, the team becomes a family for each other.� When asked to imagine a “dream broadcast� scenario, Josh understandably casts his family members. “I would love for me, my dad, and my granddad to do a Braves-Cubs game at Wrigley Field on a sunny afternoon. Doesn’t matter who wins, but just to listen to them talk baseball with me would be a treat.�

IT’S A SWING AND A MISS: KRISTI DOSH ‘03 %\ $XVWLQ *LOOLV

MOST YOUNG ATTORNEYS SEE BASEBALL AS A LEISURE ACTIVITY. FOR KRISTI DOSH, OUR NATIONAL PASTIME WAS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR AN EXCITING SECOND CAREER. Kristi, a 2003 Oglethorpe graduate and Young Alumni Trustee, has been a practicing attorney since 2007. She is currently an associate at the ďŹ rm of Taylor English Duma, LLP, where she practices real estate law. But she also has a burgeoning second career as an author and media personality, providing insight on baseball and the law. It started for Kristi when she was still in law school. Hoping to put the writing skills she honed at Oglethorpe to good use, she signed up for a tax seminar, which required her to write a lengthy paper. A lifelong baseball fan, Kristi chose to focus her paper on Major League Baseball’s revenue-sharing program. Her paper was eventually published as an article in The University of Denver Sports & Entertainment Law Journal. Even as she began practicing in the ďŹ eld of real estate law, Kristi continued to write about baseball and the law on the side. Kristi began regularly penning articles for Forbes.com, the Business of Sports Network, The Hardball Times, for her own website, “It’s a Swing and a Miss,â€? and numerous other online outlets focused on the business of sports. Eventually, those

articles led Kristi to appear on radio and television as a commentator. She can currently be seen on SportsNite, the agship program on Comcast Sports Southeast, as an expert on sports and the law. Kristi is putting the ďŹ nishing touches on a book about Major League Baseball’s collective bargaining called Balancing Baseball: How Collective Bargaining Has Changed the Major Leagues. The book, Kristi’s ďŹ rst, is due out next spring. What started as one paper about baseball has turned into an exhilarating second career for Kristi. Practicing real estate law is not easy, and neither is working in the ďŹ eld of sports. But Kristi Dosh is out there doing both—in a big league way!

IN MEMORIAM: JOHN GUTHRIE ’62 While at Oglethorpe, Guthrie played baseball and basketball, a sport that became his lifelong passion and career. During his senior year, Guthrie coached the Oglethorpe freshmen basketball team, and after graduating, he returned to his alma mater to coach basketball, baseball, and tennis.

OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY WAS SADDENED TO LOSE FORMER COACH, SPORTS PIONEER, AND OU

Guthrie moved on to coach basketball, ďŹ rst at George Washington University, and then at the University of Georgia for nine years, ďŹ ve as head coach. Guthrie later worked as assistant commissioner of the Southeastern Conference, a position he held for 25 years, serving as the league’s supervisor of basketball ofďŹ cials, a role he performed for several conferences.

ATHLETICS HALL OF FAMER JOHN GUTHRIE ’62 ON SEPTEMBER 14, 2010.

An Atlanta native, Guthrie is widely recognizes as a sports pioneer of the ’70s and ’80s. He played a primary role in the integra-

tion of UGA’s basketball team and is largely credited with the recruitment of UGA’s ďŹ rst black basketball player, Ronnie Hogue. These groundbreaking efforts extended to his work within basketball ofďŹ ciating. In the early 1980s, there was still a quota on the number of minority ofďŹ cials that were hired. According to Andre Patillo, Morehouse University’s athletics director and a former referee, Guthrie “stomped out that unofďŹ cial mandate by hiring the most promising ofďŹ cials, regardless of race‌he made it his business to identify good ofďŹ cials, especially minorities, and give them a chance.â€? John Guthrie is survived by his wife Angela, daughter Campbell, son David and his wife Laura, and their three children. John Guthrie with Coach Garland Pinholster and the 1960–61 OU championship basketball team.

ALUM IN ACTION: BRIAN CHIMIKLIS ‘08

Baseball’s Lowell Spinners. He recently returned to Atlanta to work for the sports talk radio station 790 the Zone, where he serves as a content provider and manager for their sports website.

Brian Chimiklis was the original studentbroadcaster for the Petrel Sports Network, calling baseball games during the network’s inaugural season. After graduation, Brian returned to his hometown of Lowell, Mass., and interned with the radio station 980 WCAP, assisting with the broadcasts of Minor League

Brian credits Oglethorpe’s Hoyt Young with helping him on his career path. “Hoyt was instrumental in allowing me to gain exposure in this ďŹ eld,â€? shared Brian. “He presented me with the opportunity to join the newly established Petrel Sports Network, and ultimately he was responsible for providing me with my ďŹ rst

introduction into the world of broadcasting. My experience from calling Petrel baseball games only reinforced the desire to be involved in sports broadcasting.“ Brian admits that a career in broadcasting can be more complicated than it may seem. “The announcers and sportscasters from ESPN make it look so seamless, but it can be one of the more humbling activities you can experience. The preparation that goes into these broadcasts is similar to taking a ďŹ nal exam. The amount of stats

from the media notes can be overwhelming; you could analyze the game in so many directions.�

Brian also recognizes that his industry is constantly evolving. “The emergence of social media has altered the broadcasting landscape,� he observed. “In the near future, radio stations may start to follow the ESPN model in which various types of media (radio, websites, blogs, and Twitter) will begin to blend together and form a multifaceted news outlet. To be involved in such an undertaking would be exciting.�

“EVERYONE HAS A STORY� CAT ANDERSEN ’02 %\ -RGLH 6H[WRQ *RII

CAT ANDERSEN ’02, A REPORTER FOR CHANNEL 13 EYEWITNESS NEWS IN INDIANAPOLIS, STARTS HER DAY AT 1:30 A.M. SHE IS “TV READYâ€? BY 3 A.M. AND BY THE TIME THE NEWSCAST BEGINS AT 4:30 A.M., SHE’S ALREADY OUT THE DOOR, ON THE SCENE, AND READY TO GIVE LIVE REPORTS EVERY HALF HOUR. CAT HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO COVER ALL TYPES OF ISSUES, ALTHOUGH IN THE HOOSIER STATE OF INDIANA—HOME OF THE COLTS AND THE NCAA—SPORTS ARE ESPECIALLY NEWSWORTHY! In addition to her Eyewitness News work, in spring 2008, Cat landed a job cohosting the television show NCAA On-Campus, which features college athletes across the country. Her ďŹ rst story focused on a college gymnast who went to MIT and used herself to complete a physics assignment by attaching sensors to her body while she performed.

Her favorite sports story she’s ever covered featured a student athlete at Wheaton College whose nickname was “Zoom� because he was one of their fastest runners on the track team. He had learned to sprint from living in war-torn Bosnia as a kid, and whenever he heard Serbian tanks, he would sprint to avoid getting hit by shrapnel.

In 2009, Cat hosted NCAA On-Campus at Oglethorpe, covering Olafur Loftsson, an exchange student from Iceland who won the Division III Men’s Golf Individual National Championship as a freshman and led Oglethorpe to the national team title as well.

A double major at Oglethorpe in English and political science allowed Cat to read and effectively analyze other people’s lives. When asked what drove her to journalism, Cat said, “knowing that everyone has a story. It’s fascinating to hear what people have been through, overcome, and accomplished, and to be able to tell those stories is an honor.�

GOLF

WHEN KATIE DALE GRADUATED FROM OGLETHORPE IN MAY 2010, THE FOUR-TIME ACADEMIC ALL-AMERICAN GOLFER MANAGED TO DO IT WITH A 3.94 GPA AND A DOUBLE MAJOR OF BIOLOGY AND ART— A CURIOUS COMBINATION.

STROKE OF GENIUS: KATIE DALE ‘10 %\ +R\W <RXQJ

Katie arrived at Oglethorpe from Peachtree City, Ga., and immediately set her course as a leader in academics and on the Women’s Golf team. Her academic advisor, Dr. Keith Aufderheide, helped Katie plan a college curriculum that allowed her to earn degrees in two of her loves—biology and art. Meanwhile, her third love—golf—also was blossoming. As a freshman, Katie posted three top-10 finishes in tournaments, competing in fields of more than 100 women. Pledging the Tri Sigma sorority topped off her extremely busy first year on campus. Katie worked to balance the rigors of biology classes, the creative challenges of her art classes, and the mental tests posed by the golf course. She scored a second place individual finish at the 2008 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Golf Championships, earning a trip to the NCAA Championships as a sophomore. She also found time to volunteer with the First Tee Program and East Lake Golf Club, teaching golf to underprivileged youths. During her junior year, Katie won her first tournament as an individual, bringing home the medalist honors at the 2008 Piedmont Fall Classic. As her golf game soared, so did her GPA as she juggled unlikely courses like Genetics with Professor Dan Schadler and Advanced Concepts Painting with Professor Alan Loehle. Later that year she was initiated into the elite ODK academic and leadership society. Katie claimed her second individual title at the 2009 Rhodes Fall Classic during her senior year. She capped her collegiate golf career with a fourth consecutive Academic All-American Award and fourth consecutive year as a member of the All-SCAC Women’s Golf team. She also was named the Academic Athlete of the Year by Oglethorpe Athletics. So, why the unlikely double major in biology and art? Now at the Medical College of Georgia, Katie is studying medical illustration with the goal of one day creating the educational drawings in medical textbooks and magazines. 20 CARILLON | FALL 2010

ALUMNI

Dear Friends, As the holidays approach—when family has a special meaning—I wish all the best to the entire Oglethorpe family and invite you to “come on home,â€? if only through the pages of this Carillon. Inside, I’m sure you’ve already found inspiring stories about Oglethorpe’s outstanding alumni, faculty, staff, students, and programs. I invite you especially to enjoy the stories about Oglethorpe’s athletes featured in this issue. Oglethorpe’s modern tradition of athletics started in 1916 with baseball and football teams organized by legendary coach Frank Anderson. From the beginning, Stormy Petrel athletes proved their prowess on the ďŹ elds and courts as well as in the classroom. Through the years, our alumni athletes have also demonstrated they know how to “make a life, make a living, and make a difference.â€? Throughout the fall, I continue to enjoy seeing many old friends and meeting new ones at campus events and Oglethorpe alumni receptions around the country, including gatherings in Philadelphia, New York, and Washington, D.C. More receptions in Florida are

coming up, and we’ll also be together on campus for the annual Evening of Holiday Enchantment, receptions at basketball games, and for other exciting events. And don’t forget to mark your calendars now for Alumni Weekend 2011 to be held April 15–17. Finally, I hope you will join me this year in ďŹ nancially supporting our alma mater. Our contributions help create and sustain an exceptional experience for Oglethorpe students. A gift of any amount beneďŹ ts students in many positive ways and speaks volumes of the value your Oglethorpe education has for you. I look forward to seeing you soon at Oglethorpe. With best wishes,

Randy Roberson ’97 President Oglethorpe University Alumni Association

OGLETHORPE IS PROUD TO HAVE MANY ALUMNI AS PART OF ITS FACULTY OR STAFF. AT A RECENT LUNCHEON, THE ALUMNI OFFICE HONORED THOSE WHO CONTINUE TO SERVE THEIR ALMA MATER. THOSE ALUMNI INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:

“Productions that stretch the imagination” make up this season of Oglethorpe theatre, according to Matt Huff, Oglethorpe’s new theatre director and assistant professor. The plays tackle controversial issues, including corrupt government, homophobia, domestic violence, and artistic freedom.

OU THEATRE IN THE SPOTLIGHT %\ &KORH\ 0D\R

“I searched for plays that offer a variety of roles for women and men,” said Huff. “Plays that are stylistically unique and challenging…plays and playwrights that have yet to be produced at OU, and plays that speak vividly to contemporary issues and also represent the diverse theatrical landscape of America today.” Huff, who comes to Oglethorpe from Rice University, says that although some of these plays take place in times past, the issues remain relevant today. “You read Women Beware Women and you think it was written yesterday,” said Huff. “I really wanted to bring some pieces Oglethorpe had never done before, which is a challenge because OU has created such a unique legacy over the years, which has translated into so many different types of works. This year, I really wanted to capitalize on that success by adding something new…a department that produces classical work that really speaks to contemporary issues.” Huff plans to introduce new ideas on the stage as well as off stage. He has already begun the process of adding set and costume design courses to the curriculum and plans to eventually offer courses in playwriting, theatre administration, and movement for the actor. “Students will be thrilled to have the opportunity to learn all different aspects of the theatre,” said Huff. His plans for the department don’t stop there— he would also like to take theatre majors on trips to network and experience theatre communities outside of Atlanta. “I have high expectations for our students, and my goal is to introduce them to new and different ideas in theatre. Their experience at Oglethorpe is a great place to get started, but there’s a big world of theatre just waiting to be experienced.”

Livia Balaban ’12, Alyx Buonanotte ’10, Nick Etherington ’10, Ashleigh Grizzle ’10, Rebecca McAlister ’11, and Makai Takori ’10 presented their original research. Faculty judges rated the research posters and the students’ ability to orally defend their work. After nearly three hours of competition, the ďŹ rst place award for undergraduate research went to Alyx Buonanotte ’10 for her work on meditation and relaxation. This marks the third straight year that one or more OU students earned a cash prize and won an award at this conference.

meeting in May, Oglethorpe psychology students competed for best research awards and cash prizes against undergraduate and graduate students from other Georgia universities, including Emory, Georgia State, Agnes Scott, and Kennesaw.

This followed an earlier triumph for OU psychology students and alumni, who presented their original research at the 2010 annual meeting of the Southeastern Psychology Association, one of the largest psychology associations in the United States. To be accepted for presentation, the work was required to address an important question in a particular area of psychology, and the research was required to be original, well-conducted, well-writ-

ten, and ideally, to have a real-world application. All research papers were peer-reviewed by experts in the Southeast. Those accepted to present were Mary Beth Bidgood ’10, Jessica Graner ’08, Caiti Grendahl, Ilana Olin ’09, Brandi Wilson ’07, Brittany Weiner ’12, Whitney Wood ’06, and Sara Zipperer ’06. Each gave a two-hour presentation and answered questions. Their research topics included authoritarianism as it relates to jury decisions; body image and nutrition; a two-experiment study on perfectionism, anxiety, and social comparisons; and self-actualization and its relation to parenting style. Most applicants are professors, fewer are graduate students, and a smaller number are traditional undergraduate students. Because it is relatively rare for undergraduate students’ work to be accepted for presentation at professional research conferences, their performances reect well on both their own individual efforts and the caliber of their research training.
