HEAD COACH SHEERA SIROLA

SHEERA SIROLA HEAD COACH • 10TH SEASON • ORAL ROBERTS ‘98

Success isn’t a new idea for Oral Roberts University volleyball head coach Sheera Sirola. After putting together one of the most decorated playing careers in the history of the Golden Eagle program, Sirola enters her tenth season at the helm of her alma mater poised to lead ORU to its second NCAA Tournament in her tenure. With a veteran roster stocked with members of last season’s 20-win campaign, that goal looks well within Sirola’s reach. Having been a part of the Golden Eagle program for nearly two decades, Sirola has played an integral role through the volleyball team’s banner years. ORU has amassed a stellar 393-186 (.679) record during her 17 years as a player and a coach. Sirola helped lead ORU to eight straight NCAA Tournaments from 1995-2002, as the team averaged 25 wins per season during that same span. Her record as Head Coach stands at 170111 (.605)

Sirola saw ORU through its time of Summit League (formerly MidContinent Conference) dominance, having been a part of every coaching staff since the Golden Eagles joined the league prior to the 1997 season. During those 14 years, the volleyball team compiled a mark of 167-45 (.788) in conference matches and posted at least 10 Summit League victories in 13 of the 14 seasons after the league expanded to a 12-game schedule in 1998.

Though the Golden Eagles are no longer part of the Summit League, Sirola’s name is unlikely to fade away from the conference’s record books anytime soon. Sirola ended the 2011 season as the Summit League’s career leader in overall head coaching victories (170) and conference victories (99).

The Golden Eagles also proved their superiority in the Summit League Tournament, as they held a 19-5 (.792) mark that included a string of 12 consecutive victories from 1997 to 2002. The 2011 season marked a return to dominance for Sirola’s Golden Eagle program. ORU posted 20 wins on the season, including 12 Summit League victories, and they advanced to the finals of the Summit League Tournament for the first time since 2008. Sirola led ORU on a midseason stretch where they garnered wins in 19 out of 20 matches. The Golden Eagles also took midseason tournament titles at both Kennesaw State and McNeese State. Individually, Sirola coached libero Bruna Silva to one of the finest seasons in program history. Just a sophomore, the Brazilian superstar amassed 673 digs, third-most in school history, and she became ORU’s first Summit League Defensive Player of the Year since 2006. Since Sirola took over as head coach in 2003, Golden Eagles have collected conference accolades on a regular basis. In the last nine seasons, 19 of Sirola’s players have received All-Conference recognition, including nine first-team honorees. In 2004, Becky Dreher, a two-time First-Team All-Mid-Con selection, was named the League’s Defensive Player of the Year, while Ori Zuzic earned the Mid-Con Player of the Year honor back-to-back in 2005 and 2006. Also in 2006, Thais Parada was named Setter of the Year, while Cris Alves garnered the Defensive Player of the Year award. Silva added to ORU’s Player of the Year trophy case in 2011 with her Defensive Player of the Year award.

2011 REVIEW

HEAD COACH SHEERA SIROLA In 2008, Sirola produced her fourth 20-win season with a 22-9 overall record and a 13-3 Summit League mark en route to a second-place showing. The Golden Eagles advanced to the finals of the conference tournament before falling to North Dakota State, who posted an undefeated 16-0 mark in league play. Danjiela Novakovic and JoJo Souza earned 1st Team All-Summit League honors while Janete Ferreira and Juliane Vieira were named to the 2nd Team. Vieira was also named the League’s Setter of the Year.

THE SIROLA FILE ALMA MATER

The 2007 season saw two Mid-Con All-Conference selections return in Thais Parada and Jackie Oliveira as well as four non-starters from the 2006 regular-season and conference tournament championship team. Sirola picked up career win No. 100 in a five-game victory against North Dakota State.

COACHING EXPERIENCE 1996-97 Student Assistant Coach • Oral Roberts 1998-2002 Assistant Coach • Oral Roberts 2003-Present Head Coach • Oral Roberts

In 2006, the Golden Eagles were able to push through and win their first Mid-Con title since 2002, a first since the arrival of Sirola. In her fourth season at the helm, Sirola posted her highest win total (26) and winning percentage (.743) ever as head coach. She led her squad to its best conference record since the 2002 season and its third 20-win season in the last four years. Sirola led her 2006 squad to the national tournament for the first time since 2002 and was named Mid-Con Coach of the Year

During her years as an ORU assistant coach (1996-2002), Sirola helped produce 23 All-Conference performers. She tutored three Mid-Con Player of the Year winners, including Juliana Moser, the only player in conference history to receive the honor three times. Despite spending just two years in a Golden Eagle uniform (1994-95), Sirola put her own personal mark on the program by establishing several season and career records that still stand today. Known for her killer jump serve, Sirola set the school’s single-season record with 99 service aces in 1994, and she led the entire NCAA with 98 aces during the 1995 season. Her career total of 197 service aces stood as the highest mark in ORU history until it was eclipsed by Zuzic in 2006, and Sirola still sits 2nd on ORU’s career charts. Sirola also ranks among ORU’s career top five in kills per game (3rd), hitting percentage (3rd), and digs per game (4th). Sirola also found success on the soccer field while at ORU, playing four games as a defender and goalkeeper in 1995. Once her playing career was over, Sirola stayed at ORU and completed her undergraduate degree in Physical Education in May of 1998. She then became the first volleyball player to be inducted into the ORU Athletics Hall of Fame in February of 2003.

ASSISTANT COACH JANI HAGEN

JANI HAGEN ASSISTANT COACH • 10TH SEASON • ORAL ROBERTS ‘99

Jani Hagen joined the ORU staff prior to the 2003 season after spending two successful years as the head volleyball coach at Jenks High School. Hagen was named an assistant when Shirola took the helm at ORU, and the two have led the Golden Eagles to a 170-111 (.605) record over the past nine seasons, averaging more than 18 wins per year. Hagen helped lead the Golden Eagles to a MidContinent Conference championship in 2006 and a 20-win season in 2011 Hagen’s presence has added a Brazilian flavor to the Golden Eagle coaching staff, and her recruiting prowess has helped bring several Brazilians to the ORU program. Current standouts Bruna Silva and Sthephanie Mab each hail from Brazil, as does 2006 Mid-Con Setter of the Year (and current Graduate Assistant Coach) Thais Parada. Hagen has helped mentor 19 All-Conference selections during her tenure as Sirola’s top assistant coach. Under Hagen’s tutelage, the Golden Eagles have produced seven Summit League (formerly MidContinent Conference) Players of the Year, including a clean sweep of all three of the League’s yearly awards in 2006. The Golden Eagles captured their first conference title since 2002 that season, and Ori Zuzic (Offensive), Cris Alves (Defensive) and Parada (Setter) each won Player of the Year laurels from the Mid-Con. Most recently, Hagen helped mold Silva into the 2011 Summit League Defensive Player of the Year.

ORUGoldenEagles.com

Hagen is no stranger to the Golden Eagle program. The former Jani Contador played at ORU from 1995-98, teaming with current head coach Sheera Sirola to help take the Golden Eagles to the Elite Eight of the 1995 NCAA Tournament. During the 2002 season, Hagen led her Jenks squad to a 37-17 record and the No. 7 spot in Oklahoma’s Class 5A rankings. While she enjoyed her time at Jenks, Hagen’s dream was always to return to her alma mater and continue the grand tradition of ORU volleyball. One of Hagen’s main duties at ORU is to aid with the overseas recruiting, especially in her native Brazil. Originally from Sao Paulo, Brazil, Hagen married former ORU golfer Paul Hagen (1997-98) on September 16, 2000. She graduated from ORU in 1999 with a degree in Recreation Administration.

THAIS PARADA GRADUATE ASSISTANT COACH • 3RD SEASON • ORAL ROBERTS ‘09

Former ORU standout Thais Parada joined the Golden Eagle volleyball staff as graduate assistant coach prior to the 2010 season. Parada assists with all aspects of the Golden Eagle program, including tape exchange and setting work. Parada helped lead the Golden Eagles to a 20-10 record in 2011, with a runner-up finish at the Summit League Tournament. Parada, a native of Sao Paulo, Brazil, starred at ORU from 200508. She led the Golden Eagles to an overall record of 86-43 (.667) and a stellar 47-11 (.810) mark in Summit League play during her four-year career.

Parada’s expertise paid big dividends in 2011, when she helped thensophomore Laura Taylor mature into one of the Summit League’s premier setters. Taylor tallied 1,172 assists in 2011, the 10th-highest single-season mark in ORU history and the most by an ORU player since the school’s 2006 conference title season.

Parada was named the 2006 Mid-Continent Conference Setter of the Year, when she led the Golden Eagles to the conference title and a 26-9 overall record. Parada set the ORU single-season assists record during the 2006 season with 1,485 helpers, and her 12.17 assist per set average from that season ranks third in school history. Parada ranks second in ORU history in career assists (3,551), while ranking fourth with a 10.13 assist per set average and sixth with a .293 career hitting percentage.

DANE HENDRIX

VOLUNTEER ASSISTANT COACH • 2ND SEASON

Dane Hendrix is in his second season as a Volunteer Assistant Coach with the Oral Roberts University volleyball team. Hendrix assists Head Coach Sheera Sirola in the day-to-day operations of the Golden Eagle program, with a specialty in personalized training and comprehensive skill development. Hendrix is the founder and director of Club ONE Volleyball, one of the top club volleyball programs in the Tulsa area. Hendrix has led Club ONE to 15 Junior Olympic National Tournament appearances, 13 Regional Championships, four state championships and three top-10 finishes in Junior Olympic National Tournament play. This is his 13th year coaching volleyball.

Hendrix is still active as a volleyball player, having participated in sand volleyball events for the last 12 years.

The influence of Hendrix’s Club ONE youth program is stamped on the most recent ORU volleyball recuiting class. Club ONE alumni Sadie Schaffner and Kylie Johnson will each suit up for the Golden Eagles in 2012. Schaffner and Johnson led the Club ONE Black 18 squad to a spot in the 2012 Junior Olympic National Tournament in Ohio.

DR. MARK RUTLAND PRESIDENT OF ORAL ROBERTS UNIVERSITY

Dr. Mark Rutland is the third president of Oral Roberts University. He is a distinguished educator, charismatic leader, business man and a nationally recognized figure in Christian higher education. The active pursuit of intellectual and spiritual awakening is central to Dr. Rutland’s worldview, making his vision a perfect complement to the ORU philosophy of whole-person education. Originally from Texas, Dr. Rutland completed a bachelor of science at the University of Maryland in 1970. Then, answering God’s call to the ministry, he earned a master of divinity degree from Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Georgia in 1972. Rutland soon became a United Methodist pastor. He went on to earn a Ph.D. in church growth from the California Graduate School of Theology in 1988. Dr. Rutland founded Global Servants, which has a church-planting ministry in West Africa and a large girls’ home in Thailand, and in 1998 he launched out into a second turnaround adventure: the presidency of Southeastern College in Lakeland, Florida.

During his decade of leadership that college became a university, tripled enrollment from less than 1,000 to more than 3,000 students, and saw the Lakeland campus expanded with $50 million in new construction. While there Rutland also established the Jerusalem Studies Center in Israel. Along with his academic and ministry pursuits, Dr. Rutland has authored 13 books and hosted a 30-minute daily radio program called The Herald of Joy.

services, sports medicine, strength training, marketing and media relations.

His leadership earned him the 2011-12 Division I Central Region Under Armour AD of the Year honors.

Beginning in 2012-13, Carter will lead the Golden Eagles into a new age as the department moves from the Summit League into the Southland Conference.

Under Carter’s leadership, the department is now properly staffed with support personnel. During his tenure he has developed positions in athletic development, business administration, compliance, academic

Carter and his wife, Paula have two grown children, Lizz and Cason, and two grandchildren. They are also the parents of late son, Scott, who died in December 1993 of childhood cancer.

In an era of considerable change in intercollegiate athletics, the Southland Conference continues to be a model of innovation, stability and consistent achievement as it celebrates the academic and athletic accomplishments of its member institutions. What began as a small gathering of college administrators nearly 50 years ago, the Southland Conference has transformed itself into a dynamic and respected consortium of 11 member universities in four states. Beginning with a historic meeting of five institutions in Dallas on March 15, 1963, that included current member Lamar University (then Lamar State College of Technology), the Southland Conference set on an extraordinary course that has proven successful well into its fifth decade of existence. The successful transformation continues. On Oct. 11, 2011, the Southland Conference announced the addition of Oral Roberts University, effective for the 2012-13 academic year, marking the league’s first entry into the state of Oklahoma and the Tulsa metropolitan area. Shortly thereafter, on Nov. 21, the Southland announced the addition of Houston Baptist University for the 2013-14 academic year, giving the league an 11th member and its first institution in the region’s largest city, home to significant student-recruitment and alumni bases. In addition to its two newest members, the Southland Conference membership also consists of the University of Central Arkansas, Lamar University, McNeese State University, Nicholls State University, Northwestern State University, Sam Houston State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, Stephen F. Austin State University and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. All told, the membership of the Southland encompasses approximately 120,000 current students and an alumni base of nearly 700,000. Famous alums from current Southland Conference schools include former CBS news anchor Dan Rather (Sam Houston State), NBA executive Joe Dumars (McNeese State), ABC news anchor Robin Roberts (Southeastern Louisiana), major League Baseball stars Kevin Millar (Lamar) and Mike Miley (Southeastern Louisiana), NBA legend Scottie Pippen (Central Arkansas), Grammy Award-winning musicians Don Henley and Rodney Crowell (both Stephen F. Austin), NFL standout Lardarius Webb (Nicholls State), PGA Tour

Austin), The cities of the Southland are diverse and progressive, ranging from international business and cultural centers such as Houston, New Orleans, Tulsa and Little Rock, to the historical cities of Nacogdoches, Texas, and Natchitoches, La., to the home of the modern oil boom, Beaumont, Texas, to the unique Cajun French cultures found in the Louisiana cities of Thibodaux and Lake Charles. Southland Conference institutions also draw large numbers of students from the metropolitan areas of Dallas-Fort Worth, San Antonio, Baton Rouge, Austin, and Shreveport. The Southland sponsors 17 championship sports, all at the NCAA Division I level. The eight men’s sports include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, and indoor and outdoor track and field. The women compete for nine championships in basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field, and volleyball. The conference earns automatic qualification to NCAA championships in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s golf, women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, and volleyball. Continuing its tradition of innovation, the league launched the Southland Conference Television Network in the fall of 2008 and has already broadcast more than 130 events. The network is expanding its reach to roughly 11 million households throughout Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma in 2012-13. In its first four years, the regional network has received recognition for its work, earning College Sports Media and Telly Awards on a regular basis. The Southland Conference, in conjunction with the city of Frisco, Texas and Hunt Sports Group, also serves as the host to the NCAA Division I Football Championship Game in Frisco, which has been home to the conference headquarters since 2006. The game is played at Frisco’s FC Dallas Stadium. Southland Conference football ranks among the best Football Championship Subdivision leagues in the nation, and enjoys an annual expectation of competing for the national championship with multiple teams advancing to the NCAA playoffs each year. In 2011, Sam Houston State finished the regular season undefeated and ranked No. 1 nationally, and advanced to the NCAA national championship game. Also, in 2002 and 2003, McNeese State finished the regular season ranked No. 1 in the nation, and advanced to the 2002 national championship contest. The conference has been represented in seven national championship games since the league joined the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly I-AA) in 1982. All told, Southland teams have played in 99 Division I playoff games in 30 years, winning 47 of the contests. Historically, the Southland’s successful football heritage has sustained itself through numerous membership and classification changes. Originally an NAIA conference, the Southland joined the NCAA College Division in 1968. The College Division was re-named NCAA Division II in 1973, and the league played two seasons in that class, before joining Division I in 1975. The Southland was an NCAA Division I-A league from 1978-81, before joining the ranks of FCS in 1982, its home ever since. During its tenure as a Division I-A conference, the Southland Conference was instrumental in the startup of the Independence Bowl in 1976. The Southland

The conference can lay claim to five national championships, including College Division championships through former members Arkansas State (1970, UPI) and Louisiana Tech (1972, National Football Foundation). Louisiana Tech also won the first NCAA-sanctioned national title, winning the Division II playoffs in 1973. Tech followed that with the UPI’s Division II national championship in 1974. Louisiana-Monroe won the 1987 national championship. McNeese State, which has made 14 appearances in the national playoffs, also played in the 1997 NCAA Division I Championship game, while Stephen F. Austin played in the 1989 title contest and has six playoff appearances, including 2009 and 2010. Northwestern State has played in the playoffs six times, and advanced to the semifinals in 1998, while Sam Houston State has earned five trips to the postseason, including the semifinals in 2004. Nicholls State has participated three times in the playoffs, and Central Arkansas made its playoff debut in 2011. On four occasions, the Southland has placed three teams in the NCAA playoffs. The Southland has produced 163 first-team football All-Americans during its history and in 2010, Stephen F. Austin quarterback Jeremy Moses became the first player in Southland history to receive the Walter Payton Award, which is presented annually to the most outstanding football player at the FCS level. The Southland is one of five FCS conferences with at least 200 selections (205) in the National Football League draft. The league also ranks third in the FCS with 25 players taken in the draft since 2000 and has 13 former players on NFL rosters heading into the 2012 season. The Southland Conference has also sent such talent to the professional ranks as Buffalo’s Terrence McGee (Northwestern State) and Felton Huggins (Southeastern Louisiana), Minnesota’s Rhett Bomar (Sam Houston State), Jacksonville’s Bryan Smith (McNeese State) and Larry Hart (Central Arkansas), Tennessee’s Jacob Ford (Central Arkansas), Baltimore’s Lardarius Webb (Nicholls State), Seattle’s Dominique Edison (Stephen F. Austin) and Green Bay’s Antonio Robinson (Nicholls State), who became the Southland’s 24th player to win a Super Bowl when the Packers beat Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XLV in Arlington in 2011. Among the former NFL stars from the Southland include Fred Dean, who was inducted to the Professional Football Hall of Fame in 2008 to become the first former Southland Conference player to earn induction in Canton. Other great NFL players from the Southland include Super Bowl XXIX quarterback Stan Humphries, Bill Bergey, Mike Barber, Fred Barnett, Bubby Brister, Ray Brown, Roger Carr, Larry Centers, Bruce Collie, Jackie Harris, Buford Jordan, Tim McKyer, Kavika Pittman, Billy Ryckman, Rickey Sanders, Eugene Seale, Rafael Septien, Terrance Shaw, Marcus Spears, Pat Tilley and Marvin Upshaw. The Southland Conference has also seen its share of great coaches during its history in Maxie Lambright, Ernie Duplechin, Sam Goodwin, Jack Doland, Bennie Ellender, Bobby Keasler, Larry Lacewell, Bill Davidson, Dennis Franchione, Pat Collins, and Ron Randleman. In addition to football, the Southland Conference can point to a number of accomplishments in all sports. Men’s basketball has experienced a tremendous amount of success during the Southland’s 45-plus years. The league has sent two teams to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen, as well as a squad to the NIT Final Four. Basketball stars Karl Malone, Joe Dumars, Jeff Foster, Dwight “Bo” Lamar, Andrew Toney and Mike Oliver played in the Southland Conference. In 2006, Northwestern State, playing as the No. 14 seed in the NCAA tournament, defeated No. 3 seed Iowa, 64-63, in first-round action. The

Coaches such as Billy Tubbs, Mike Vining, Scotty Robertson, Jack Martin, Andy Russo, Bobby Paschal and Pat Foster have led teams in the Southland. In women’s basketball, the Southland also has its share of tradition with former member Louisiana-Monroe advancing to the 1985 NCAA Women’s Final Four, and Stephen F. Austin sustaining itself as one of the most successful programs in the history of the sport. In 2008, the Ladyjacks became the eighth program in NCAA Division I history to record more than 800 wins. In each of the last three seasons, at least three Southland teams reached the postseason, and in 2011, half of the current members, five (including newcomer Oral Roberts), earned postseason berths. A Southland team has played in the WNIT 12 times, including each of the last six years. Women’s basketball all-stars have included Eun Jung Lee, Lisa Ingram, Portia Hill, Deneen Parker, Katrina Price, and Joskeen Garner, and coaches such as Gary Blair, Linda Sharp, James Smith and Linda Harper. Baseball has emerged as a constant Southland Conference strength with the league earning numerous national rankings and NCAA tournament berths. The Southland consistently ranks among the top-10 conferences in the country. In 2011, 50 of the league’s 150 non-conference victories came against the Big 12, Conference USA, Sun Belt and SEC. Major leaguers such as Ben Sheets, Micah Hoffpauir, Hunter Pence, David Segui, Brian Lawrence, Ben Broussard, Chuck Finley, Jerald Clark, and Terry Matthews once played in the Southland. In 2012, Southeastern Louisiana’s Stefan Lopez became the league’s second winner of the national Stopper of the Year Award, which is selected by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers. Sam Houston State’s Luke Prihoda won the award in 2007. Only the Big 12 Conference has had more players win that award. The Southland also fares well each year in the Major League Draft. Seventeen players were selected in 2012, a year after the league saw 25 players taken in 2011, which matched 1995 for the most in its history. The league, which has had 456 draft picks all time, has had two players, Ben Sheets (Louisiana-Monroe) and Michael Choice (UT Arlington) taken seventh in the draft, marking the league’s highestever draft picks. In 2011, Lamar mentor Jim Gilligan became the first Southland coach to reach 1,200 career victories, ranking him sixth-best in the NCAA among active Division I coaches and 24th all-time. After 26 years as a college head coach, including his last five years at Sam Houston State, Mark Johnson retired following the 2011 season with 1,043 career wins. He is among an impressive list of coaches who have patrolled Southland Conference dugouts, including Mike Bianco, John Cohen, Mitch Gaspard, Smoke Laval, Butch McBroom, Pat Patterson, Tony Robichaux, Dave Van Horn and Jim Wells. Softball continues to enjoy success on a national level, beating nationallyranked opponents every year since 1995, including McNeese State’s win at No. 1 Arizona State early in the 2012 season. In 2011, the league had four wins against ranked opponents, including a win by Stephen F. Austin at No. 3 Texas. In 20 years of NCAA tournament competition the Southland has racked up 15 wins. The Southland also has a proud history in volleyball with former member UT Arlington representing the conference numerous times in the NCAA tournament, including a run to the NCAA Volleyball Final Four in 1989. Track and field has also served as a proud asset for the Southland Conference as the league has produced numerous national champions and Olympic medalists.

The league has also produced U.S. Olympic track and field medalists Earl Bell, Thomas Hill, Al Joyner and Charles Austin, Liudmila Litvinova, along with other Olympians. With the addition of 10 more All-Americans in 2012, the league continues to find national success in both indoor and outdoor track and field. In the indoor circuit, the Southland boasts 66 unique all-time All-Americans that have won a combined 11 national championships. Likewise, in the outdoor season, the league has seen 158 different All-Americans, including 128 men and 30 women, who have combined to win 21 national championships. Golf has traditionally been a strong Southland sport as exemplified by Lamar men’s golfer Chris Stroud, who finished third individually at the 2003 NCAA National Championship and is a member of the PGA Tour. Both Stroud and former Southeastern Louisiana golfer Hugo Leon competed in the 2010 U.S. Open. The league has sent multiple teams into postseason play on numerous occasions, including in 2012 when three Southland teams – Lamar, Southeastern Louisiana and UT Arlington – competed in the NCAA tournament. Additionally, during the past four seasons the Southland has sent 10 golfers to compete as individuals in regional play with five in 2009, three more in 2010 and one each in 2011 and 2012. Lamar won a pair of NCAA Division II national championships in 1967 and 1968, and also produced PGA player Ronnie Black. In 2005, Lamar’s Dawie Van Der Walt finished fourth individually and Lamar tied for 12th place at the NCAA Men’s Golf Championship, before the Cardinals tied for ninth in 2006 and tied for third in 2007. Former Lamar golfer Casey Clendenon advanced to the semifinals of the U.S. Amateur in 2007. In women’s tennis, Southeastern Louisiana won 46 consecutive conference matches during a four-year period that began in 2005, while in men’s tennis Texas A&M-Corpus Christi has played in the NCAA tournament four times in the last six years. The conference has increased sponsorship and championship opportunities for female student-athletes in recent years, adding women’s golf and soccer as league sports. The Southland Conference has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to the academic and athletic success of its student-athletes. With the F.L. McDonald Postgraduate Scholarship Award, the league annually honors one male and one female scholar-athlete with a stipend for postgraduate study. The Scholar-Athlete Award is given to each institution’s male and female student-athlete with the highest grade-point average.

Also, studentathletes with grade-point averages above 3.0 are honored on the Southland’s annual All-Academic teams and Commissioner’s Honor Roll. A record 979 student-athletes appeared on the honor roll following the 2012 spring semester. While successful on the fields and courts, the Southland Conference has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to the academic and athletic success of its student-athletes. The conference continues to make great strides in the classroom. During the last six years, no other Division I conference has improved its Academic Progress Rate as well as the Southland Conference has. In fact, in 2009-10, the Southland ranked 10th among the 31 Division I leagues in men’s basketball APR. The academic progress the league has shown ultimately leads to higher graduation rates for our student-athletes. In addition to providing expanding opportunities for student-athletes, the Southland Conference and its member institutions are very involved in various community outreach programs. Many of these programs provide positive life skills training such as academics, citizenship and leadership to school-aged students in Southland communities.
