USC Aiken is making a motion to transform the campus to be tobacco-free. This is a change that is trending in colleges across the nation. USC’s Columbia campus is the latest in South Carolina to make the move. The USCA Student Government Association was asked by the Tobacco Free Initiative committee to take a poll during the recent Get on Board days about what the students thought. “Out of about 45 votes, one-third want the campus to be completely tobacco free, another one-third didn’t care

because they don’t smoke, and the final one-third of the vote said they think the current policy is fine,” said Sam LaMunion, SGA president and Tobacco Free Initiative committee member. “Only two people voted to be able to smoke anywhere on campus,” said LaMunion. “I am a firm believer in individual rights,” said Dr. Deb Kladivko, the Vice Chancellor of Student Life and Services, “but things get complicated when these rights affect others. An issue arises when people do not follow the rules.” USC has made a bold move, fairly quickly, and some feel that if such a large campus can make this change, USCA

should have no problem. “I think the current policy would be fine if it was enforced. There are benefits of being a tobacco free, it makes the campus prettier and cleaner, and improves student health,” said LaMunion, a senior exercise and sports science major. The Senior Administration will be the final decisionmaker, but they are very interested in what the students think. There will be an all-day program at USC in Columbia on Oct. 17 titled “The Summit” which will give colleges information on making a campus tobacco free.

Aiken’s Makin’ returns this weekend Orlando Moldovan Staff Writer

common history of success only serves to invite the public back

More than 30 years ago the city of Aiken held the first installment of what would become a defining festival for its heritage. The Aiken’s Makin’ festival saw its beginnings as a small city-scale attraction largely aimed at providing family-oriented fun and economic stimulus for the county’s and state’s vendors and artisans. Looking back on its roots 37 years after the event’s commencement, the city can delineate the festival’s growing local, as well as national, appeal with pride as this year’s roster will include more than 200 vendors and artisans native to the state or otherwise. In charge of the preparations for this year’s festival, not surprisingly at all, are two USC Aiken alumni: co-chairs Amber Holcomb and John McMichael. The co-chairs have been working together to bring this experience to the public for the past five years, and their

The city would also like to thank the USCA students who have volunteered to help out with the festival this year, and remind the rest of the student body that any work for the community is very much appreciated.

Youth is served: 2013 volleyball preview Kyle Dawson Sports Editor 2012 Recap

Sports Information

2012 Peach Belt Conference Co-Freshman of the Year Ashley Diedrich headlines a young, talented volleyball roster.

The USC Aiken volleyball team posted an 18-13 record in 2012, highlighted by an 11-match winning streak bridging September and October. The Pacers’ 7-7 mark in Peach Belt Conference matches earned them a thirdplace finish in league play. The senior-laden squad lost in the quarterfinals of the PBC tournament, closing the book on some of the most successful individual careers in program history.

Back with a Vengeance

Roster 1 Amanda Bologna – Fr. – Virginia Beach, Va. 3 Taylor Stratton – Fr. – Chesapeake, Va. 4 Shawn Hotson – Fr. – Milwaukee, Wis. 5 Aly Johnson – So. – Apple Valley, Minn. 6 Danielle Mercer – Fr. – Columbus, Ohio 8 Leah Rodgers – Sr. – Longwood, Fla. 9 Endea Ellison – Sr. – Orange Park, Fla. 11 Monica Cardona – So. – Aiken, S.C. 12 Sheila Walsh – Jr. – Fort Mill, S.C. 15 Brittany Faulkner – Fr. – Loganville, Ga. 20 Hannah Tierney – Jr. – Winchester, Va. 21 Ashley Lind – Fr. – Suffolk, Va. 22 Ashley Diedrich – So. – Orlando, Fla. 88 Katie Toman – Fr. – Keenesburg, Colo. Head Coach: Glenn Cox (Sixth Season) Assistant Coach: Chip Herring

Inside the Streak The Pacers pieced together an 11-match win streak spanning from Sept. 15-Oct. 6. During that time, the Pacers: • Swept eight opponents • Won 33 of 38 games played • Outscored the opposition by nearly 23 points per match • Beat four PBC opponents • Lost just one game in the Convocation Center

Six letter winners return for the Pacers, led by Preseason All-PBC selection Ashley Diedrich, one of the conference’s best in service aces and kills. Aly Johnson (hitting percentage), Hannah Tierney (blocks) and Sheila Walsh (assists) also posted top marks among PBC players. With just two seniors and two juniors, USCA boasts a combination of youth and experience. According to head coach Glenn Cox, the returning players have provided great leadership and have set the tone in practice. “The returners are the core of this team. They know the system; they know where to be defensively,” he said. “They’re by far the best communicators on the court. Having some new faces in the lineup and some people that are really hungry to play has made them step up.”

Fresh Faces Rounding out USCA’s roster are eight new players, seven of whom are freshmen. Aiken product Monica Cardona, a Winthrop transfer, brings experience at the libero position. Three newcomers – Amanda Bologna, Taylor Stratton and Ashley Lind – captured an

AAU national championship back in 2011. However, they’re not the only freshmen with high-level backgrounds. “All of the other new ones coming in definitely have open level experience and come from some of the premier clubs in the country,” he said.

Circle Your Calendar The schedule is once again loaded with quality opponents, many of them appearing in conference play. September is filled with home dates, including the USCA Volleyball Invitational. PBC powerhouses Armstrong and Flagler headline a rugged slate, visiting the Convocation Center on Oct. 11 and 12, respectively. The Pacers’ final home match, Nov. 6 against GRU Augusta, could be pivotal in the region rankings.

2013 Outlook The volleyball team enters the season ranked fifth in the PBC preseason coaches’ poll, just four points behind preseason No. 3 Montevallo. A potentially ever-changing lineup could keep Cox busy all season long. However, he feels that having a nice arsenal of weapons to choose from is a good problem to have. “As of right now, I have no idea what a starting six would look like,” he said. “There are so many people that are battling and pushing each other and all playing great.” Despite a large group of newcomers contributing to a wide-open roster competition, Cox said that the chemistry has been superb in the preseason, something he feels is a key to success. “If you continue to have a group of players that step up and push each other all season long and keep the chemistry there, then you have a team that’s got a real potential of doing something great,” he said.

Run to the hills: 2013 cross country preview Kyle Dawson Sports Editor 2012 Recap USC Aiken’s cross country season posted three top10 finishes in its five meets in 2012, including a team title at the Francis Marion Invitational. The victory was USCA’s fourth in school history and first since 2007. According to head coach Kara Kreutzer, the team’s 11thplace finish in the Peach Belt Conference Championship was due more to a loaded league than a poor performance. In fact, USCA saw major improvements over the course of the season, with some runners shaving a minute or more off of their times. The Pacers didn’t host a meet last year but did post top-10 finishes at the Jaguar Invitational and Falcon Classic, both of which feature significant hills. “It’s not all just about how fast you can go,” Kreutzer said of the varying courses on the schedule. “It’s how tough you are and how you can cover some pretty tough terrain and still come out on top.”

Back with a Vengeance Nearly everyone returns from last year’s team. Top runner Keely Gillespie leads the pack, having earned AllSoutheast Region Team honors a year ago. Gillespie also took home individual honors for the first time in her career at the Francis Marion Invitational with a time of 20:43, 12 seconds ahead of the second place finisher. Returning juniors Kayla Millholland, Brittany May and Alexis Harvin have all turned in strong performances in the past, giving Kreutzer some options to fill the spot behind Gillespie. “I’m curious to see myself who’s going to be our number two runner,” she said. “I’m not quite sure who will take up that position.”

Millholland’s fourth-place finish at the 2012 Francis Marion Invitational was her best of the year. May and Harvin also turned in seasonbest finishes in Florence, placing 10th and 12th, respectively. “I’m hoping to do even better this season in terms of beating out some teams that are close to our caliber,” said Kreutzer.

Fresh Faces Kreutzer added a pair of new runners to the roster for 2013. Junior Colleen Cirillo will begin her collegiate career this year while Abigail Sorrenson is a transfer from Converse College. “[Cirillo] has just been a recreational runner,” Kreutzer said. “She just decided to come out on the team and she’s been doing really well in practice.” Sorrenson, one of five juniors on the team, was part of a Converse team that finished third in its conference. “I’m hoping that she will run some of the same times that she ran in her past races,” said Kreutzer.

Circle Your Calendar 2013 marks the return of the Bridgestone-Pacer Invitational, USCA’s home race. After not hosting it a year ago, the Oct. 4 race should serve as a litmus test for future success. “It is a tough course,” Kreutzer said, “but I think it prepares us for some other hard courses out there in the conference.” The following race, Oct. 18’s Francis Marion Invitational, will give the Pacers an opportunity to defend their team title from a year ago. “They run it in a small city park. It’s really pretty out there,” said Kreutzter. “I think that will be a nice, quick 5K for us.” Kreutzer is also looking forward to Sept. 7’s Pre-

Conference Meet as well as Oct. 26’s PBC Championship, both of which will be hosted by Georgia Southwestern. “I’ve never seen the course,” Kreutzer said. “I don’t really know that much about it, but I’m hoping that it will be a good course and we’ll run some fast times there.”

2013 Outlook USCA enters this season with something it hasn’t had in years: experience. Avoiding injuries, something that has plagued the Pacers in the past, will be key. Though many of the runners have posted fast times in their careers, the challenge will be getting good performances from everyone at once. PBC coaches ranked USCA 11th in their preseason poll. The upperclassmen-heavy Pacers begin 2013 with an opportunity to make their mark in conference action against some of the country’s best teams. “I think this is going to be one of our best years yet,” she said, mentioning that preseason practices have been outstanding. “As long as we can find that delicate balance between hard enough and not hard enough and keep everyone healthy, I think we’re going to have a great season.”

Last season the USC Aiken women’s soccer team fell short of the Peach Belt Conference Tournament, compiling a regular season record of 4-11-3 and a PBC record of 3-7-1. The team began the year by going 4-6-1 in the first month of the season. This month included a pair of conference victories over Georgia College and Young Harris for the first time in program history. The next month would begin with two ties on the road against Flagler and Coker. However, these would be the final positive results for the Pacers as they would go on to conclude the season with five consecutive losses, ultimately missing the PBC tournament. Despite the disappointing end to the season, head coach Sue Vodicka was still pleased with the effort. “I think it was a good season, we started with a lot of young talent and started off with a couple good results and I think we thought it was going to be like that the rest of the way,” said Vodicka.

Returning Players The Pacers return several players to this year’s squad, including five seniors. “We’ve got a great core of seniors; Alli Edens, Aubrey Danielson, Kyle Maguire, Joi Chrishon and Melissa Westphal; they are ready to go to have a great year,” Vodicka said. The play of this group will go a long way in determining the success of this year’s team. “We return Megan Smits and Heaven Tylee,” Vodicka added, “who both had great years last year and are in even

better shape this year.”

Incoming Players This year’s roster will have three new players that will have the chance to make an immediate impact on this year’s team. “We’ve got Cyndle McGuinness, a speedy flank player forward, Emily May, a center back and Hannah Allison, who is probably going to play up top with Megan,” Vodicka said. The play of transfers McGuinness, May and Allison could have a big impact on the success of the Pacers this season.

Games to Watch The Pacers will play several tough games again in the always-tough Peach Belt Conference. Two of the most important games are against preseason No. 13 Columbus State on the road on Sept. 28 and against preseason No. 5 Armstrong Atlantic State on Oct. 23 at the Pacer Pit.

2013 Outlook The goal for the 2013 USCA women’s soccer team is the same as always under head coach Sue Vodicka; get to the Peach Belt Conference tournament. “Every year you want to be in the Peach Belt Tournament. Every year that’s what the goal is,” said Vodicka. The 2013 Pacers have 11 home matches, including three straight home contests to begin the season and five of their first seven matches at home as well. “We’re excited, I think they all came in super fit this year and really ready to go,” Vodicka said.

Forging ahead: 2013 men’s soccer preview Nick Terry Sports Writer 2012 Recap USC Aiken’s men’s soccer team is coming off arguably the most successful season in head coach Ike Ofoje’s 17 years with the program. The team got off to a slow start in 2012, going 3-2-2 in the first month of the season. The second month of the season was much like the first, with the team compiling a 3-32 record for the month. The team headed into the Peach Belt Conference tournament, fresh off two wins over UNC Pembroke and North Georgia, as the eighthseeded team with a record of 6-5-4 on the season. USCA would carry this momentum into the PBC tournament with a first-round win, on penalty kicks, over top seed Lander. They would follow this triumph with another penalty kick victory; this time over fourth-seeded Young Harris. However, the team’s magical run would come to an end in the championship game with a 4-1 loss to second-seeded Montevallo. Ofoje was excited with the success of last year’s team and their run to the title game. “I think last season for us was a very successful year; having played well in the conference games and making it to the finals of the Peach Belt Tournament,” he said. “I think we can say that we overachieved because we went beyond what our said goals were.”

Returning Players The Pacers have several returning players that are expected to contribute and have a big impact on the success of this year’s team. Noel Mais, Jason King, Andre McFarlane, Carson Villa, Dean Smith, Brandon Jarosz and Joshua Poissant all return from last year’s team.

Ofoje believes all of these players will be crucial to the success of this year’s team. “Carson Villa and the two goalkeepers from last year have formed the nucleus of this team. Noel Mais and Jason King are returning, Andre McFarlane I’m hoping will be a very strong man in the back for us this year,” Ofoje said. “Dean [Smith] is another returner that will be phenomenal this year, Dean came in as a freshman last year and started and played almost every minute of every game last year.”

Incoming Players This year’s roster will include five new players that Ofoje feels should be watched throughout the season. Armin Lange from Munich, Germany, Jarrel Smalls and Wayne Preddie from USC Salkehatchie and Maurice Walters from Barton College all join this year’s team as transfer students. One incoming freshman that Ofoje is excited about is Rodrigo Goncalves from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. “Rodrigo is another smooth player, he moves slow, he walks slow, he runs slow,” Ofoje said. “But once he picks up the ball I think that is where he’s going to hurt some teams this year because he is quick on the ball and is a good dribbler.”

Games to Watch Once again the Pacers will play a tough schedule highlighted with two home games against Young Harris and Flagler, along with a huge road matchup against Lander. The Pacers will face Young Harris at the Pacer Pit on Sept. 25 and preseason No. 10 Flagler on Oct. 9. Another big matchup will be on the road against preseason No. 15 Lander on Oct. 2. Winning these games will play a big part in the success of the team this season.

2013 Outlook The Pacers come into this season ranked eighth in the PBC Preseason Poll. There are 15 letter winners returning to this year’s team, along with several talented incoming freshmen and transfer students. USCA has nine matches at home this season, including five of its first seven. Ofoje expects this year’s team to be able to build off of last year’s success and be as successful as last year, if not better. “The goal is to work as hard as we can to see if we can repeat that again or even surpass that,” said Ofoje. “Every year I set out to be a manager rather than a coach and for the past five years I think last year was the first time I reached that goal of being a manger; I’m hoping to be able to do that again this year.”
