The Lady Tiger squad comprises three returning letterwinners and four newcomers—three freshmen and one junior transfer. This young group heads into the 2011 campaign looking to continue a recent pattern of success. Since Lee Taylor Walker took the reins in 2007, Memphis has climbed steadily in national and conference rankings and produced the winningest season in seven years in 2009-10 with 13 victories. Walker and his program expect to keep progressing and hitting new milestones this spring.

Returners Anchored by All-Conference USA selection Courtney Collins, the Lady Tigers also return letterwinners Andrea Arques-Garcia and Kelly Gray. These three went 31-40 overall in dual matches last year and posted a 4-5 mark in conference play. The sophomore class will have the responsibility of being the leaders of a group with no upperclassmen following the TAYLOR H. TAYLOR ASSISTANT COACH

Newcomers Newcomers make up the majority of the Memphis roster this season, but they all know what it takes to capture a title. Stefanie Mikesz and Sarah Witkowski both have won a state title for their high schools in singles, Kathleen Hawkins has won three, and Tyler Junior College transfer Mariya Slupska currently holds the Junior College doubles title. Recent successes for the incoming netters include Hawkins being named “Miss Tennis” last summer as the top senior women’s netter in the state of Michigan as determined by The Detroit Free Press. Mikesz also received a bid to compete in pre-qualifying doubles at the 2010 All-American Championships during the fall slate.

2011 Women’s Tennis Preview Home of the Lady Tigers The Racquet Club of Memphis has been the Mid-South’s premier tennis facility since it opened its doors in 1974. The Racquet Club has hosted the Regions Morgan Keegan Championship, an annual stop on the ATP Men’s World Tour each February since 1976. In 2002, the Racquet Club of Memphis also became host to the Cellular South Cup, an ATP Women’s World Tour event, held during the same time as the men’s event. The Lady Tigers love their new home, but plans to enhance and expand are already in the works. The final phase of renovations at The Racquet Club is set to begin soon and includes sprucing up the outdoor courts with an outdoor plaza complete with refreshment stand and tables, along with the addition of covered grandstand seating that will help fashion a top collegiate tennis environment.

The Racquet Club: Courts The sign at the front says it all: The Racquet Club of Memphis is the official home of Tiger Tennis. In October of 2009 the Tigers moved in, but the 2010-11 season marks the first full year that the U of M tennis programs will call the Mid-South’s premiere facility ‘home.’ It rivals the finest clubs in the country with 186,000 square feet of facilities, including six recently refurbished top-of-the-line, post-tension system hard courts as well as 11 indoor courts. If you’re a tennis player, it’s tough to find a better place to practice and play.

Oh, the luxuries of being a Lady Tiger. Between practices and matches, Tiger netters now have an exclusive space that allows them to work hard and play hard off the court. The state-of-the-art player lounge, known as the “Tiger Den,” features a training room, study area, kitchen, private locker rooms, racquet stringing room and offices for the coaching staff. The striking den boasts four 48-inch big-screen televisions, which allow student-athletes to study film of their performances on the court or simply kick back on the leather couches and relax while watching television or playing on the most popular gaming systems.

Team Information

Global Roster The 2010-11 women’s tennis squad includes players from near and far. Fulton, Miss., is the closest hometown of current players, a mere two hours away from the U of M campus. Other Lady Tigers hail from farther locations in the United States, such as Georgia and Michigan, while also pulling internationally from Spain, Germany and the Ukraine. It’s a group from diverse backgrounds forming one Memphis family.

Courtney Collins was selected to be one of nine collegiate tennis players from across the country to represent Team USA at the World University Games in Shenzhen, China in August 2011. Collins joins four others from USC, UCLA, and Texas to make up the women’s roster.

Facing the Best

Memphis women’s tennis prides itself in scheduling some of the toughest competition in the country to push the skillset of its players and 2011 will see more of the same. The Lady Tigers are slated to face 12 teams ranked in the top 75 and four top-ranked teams in its first five matches with No. 11 Clemson, No. 17 Ole Miss, No. 18 Georgia and No. 70 BYU. While Memphis netters struggled on the road during the 2010 spring campaign, going 0-13 in away matches, Memphis amassed an 8-0 record in dual matches at The Racquet Club of Memphis and looks to continue their home winning streak.

The U of M kicked off the tournament portion of the 2010-11 campaign by hosting the Memphis Collegiate Invitational at The Racquet Club of Memphis. Courtney Collins sailed through to win the top singles flight and freshman Sarah Witkowski put together a solid outing as well, winning two matches against opponents from Austin Peay and Tulane to advance to the finals of her singles draw before falling to an Evansville's Carolyn Caire. Minor injuries would plague Witkowski and several other Lady Tigers throughout the rest of the fall season, preventing them from participating in every tournament. Next on the schedule was the Roberta Alison Classic, in Tuscaloosa, Ala., where Collins upended No. 118 Alex Clay of Alabama, 6-2, 6-3 before withdrawing in the draw finals. Collins and newcomer Stefanie Mikesz made program history by receiving the firstever bids to compete at the All-American Championships in Pacific Palisades, Calif., in pre-qualifying singles and doubles. Collins was taken down in a hard-fought, three-set match to Lily Kimbell of Georgia. The next day, the tandem found themselves up 5-0 and 6-3 at points during the match, but was edged out by Illinois duo Breanna Smutko and Chelcie Abajian, 9-7. Collins and Mikesz were joined by Kelly Gray at the ITA Ohio Valley Regionals in in October. Collins advanced the furthest in the main singles draw out of the three participants, defeating Mandy Brown of Louisville, 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (5), in the round of 64 and Myriem Mhirit of Eastern Kentucky, 6-2, 6-2, in the round of 32 before falling in the round of 16. Andrea Arques-Garcia had her best outing at the June Stewart Invitational in Nashville, Tenn., hosted by Vanderbilt University, where she recorded two wins against opponents from Lipscomb. Also in that tournament, Kelly Gray and Kathleen Hawkins downed tandems from Lipscomb and MTSU. The U of M closed out the tournament portion of the 2010-2011 campaign by traveling to Champaign, Ill., to participate in the Midwest Blast against stiff, top-ranked competition in No. 5 Notre Dame, No. 24 Illinois, and No. 42 Oklahoma. Collins logged the Lady Tigers' only win that weekend defeating Misia Kedzierski of Illinois, 5-7, 6-2, 6-4.

That same season he coached senior Ashley Murdock to her third consecutive All-Conference USA second team selection and Collins to her first All-C-USA nod. In 2008-09, Walker's second season at the helm of the Memphis women's tennis program, the Tigers went 11-13, including wins over conference foes Southern Miss and UAB.

In the 2010 dual match slate, the team recorded the second-best win total in program history, and most since the 1999-00 season, with 13.

The U of M kicked off the month of February with a win over Kennesaw State at The Racquet Club of Memphis before traveling to the Northeast and partook in two close team battles. Ultimately, the U of M was taken down by Boston College, 5-2, and just narrowly fell to No. 44 Yale, 4-3. Two points against Yale came in the form of doubles victories from the pair of Ashley Murdock and Marjorie Ondeck, as well as Collins and Kelly Gray, with the most notable win coming from Murdock who took down Yale’s 87thranked Stephanie Kent, 7-5, 6-4, in singles play. The Lady Tigers subsequently returned to Memphis and pulled out back-to-back wins against teams from Samford and Austin Peay before facing a daunting, month-long road schedule. In seven straight matches away from home, the squad dropped to No. 20 Arkansas and No. 35 Oklahoma in Fayetteville, Ark., while Murdock picked up another significant victory against Stephanie Roy of Arkansas, 7-6, 6-2. The netters rebounded to pick up a win against Arkansas Tech before journeying to Arizona in the beginning of March. Once out west in Arizona, Memphis secured a win against Eastern Arizona College, 7-0, before dropping to No. 32 Arizona State. Two days later, in the face-off against No. 56 Arizona, both Murdock and Collins took nationally-ranked players to three sets in singles, but couldn’t find a way to come out on top as Memphis fell to the Wildcats. After defeating Richmond, the netters faced yet another ranked opponent in No. 56 William & Mary in Williamsburg, Va., where Murdock struck again, hanging on to defeat Ragini Acharya, 6-1, 0-6, 10-5. Starting with their last match in March, the Lady Tigers would go on a four-match winning streak, taking down Tennessee Tech, Louisiana-Monroe, UAB and Middle Tennessee. The streak was capped off by a perfect 8-0 run in singles and doubles by Kelly Gray the first week of April, which earned her Conference USA Player of the Week honors. However, conference foes Southern Miss and Tulane proved to be too much too handle and Memphis closed out the regular season with two losses. Southern Miss wouldn’t have the same luck at the end of April in Tulsa, Okla., at the Conference USA Championships. Behind doubles victories from the tandems of Collins and Gray and Amanda Brown and Dara Toulch, plus singles wins from Murdock and Collins, the Golden Eagles fell, 4-2, and the Lady Tigers advanced to face No. 27 SMU in the quarterfinals. The top-ranked Mustangs prevailed, 4-0, to end the season for the U of M. At the conclusion of the spring slate, Murdock and Collins had each tallied 17 wins, tying them for the team-high. Both garnered all-conference honors for their successes on the court.

Considered the “Home of the Blues” and the “Birthplace of Rock ‘n Roll,” the city of Memphis’ musical roots run deep. However, music is just a chapter in the history as well as the future of the city located in the heart of Mid-America. Memphis, named after the capital of ancient Egypt, boasts all the amenities you would expect in a city with over 1 million residents, while retaining the charm and downto-earth feel of a small town. Downtown Memphis recently realized a building boom valued at $2.3 billion which transformed the heart of the city. One of the most visible projects was the construction of AutoZone Park, the downtown ballpark which is the home of the Memphis Redbirds, the St. Louis Cardinals’ Triple-A club. The 14,320seat stadium includes 1,500 club seats, 48 luxury suites and is located at the corner of Third Street and Union Avenue across from the world-famous Peabody Hotel. The city’s newest downtown project is FedExForum, an entertainment arena that houses both the Memphis Grizzlies of the National Basketball Association and the University of Memphis men’s basketball team. The $250 million state-of-the-art arena features a 35,000-square-foot outdoor plaza where fans of all ages can gather before an event. The arena has over 100 points of sale for concession stands and four full-service restaurants. FedExForum is located one block south of Beale Street. Memphis’ musical roots can be traced to band leader W.C. Handy, who wrote the first blues song here in 1909, a campaign theme for Memphis mayor “Boss” Crump called “Boss Crump Blues” and later published as the “The Memphis Blues.” The sound soon caught on and blues bands filled the clubs along Beale. Young musicians who have performed along Beale include Muddy Waters, Furry Lewis, Albert King, Bobby “Blue” Bland and B.B. King. Beale Street has rapidly become the entertainment center of Memphis and visitors and locals alike enjoy the food and music offered in the various nightclubs. Where Beale Street meets the Mississippi River is Tom Lee Park, site of the annual Beale Street Music Festival. The weekendlong event is just a part of the month-long Memphis in May International Festival which also includes the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest and the Sunset Symphony. Located within a block of Beale is Gibson Guitar Memphis, which includes factory tours and cultural exhibits. Across the street is the Smithsonian’s Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum located at the FedExForum, which includes artifacts documenting music’s past. Memphis’ musical roots also include Stax and Hi-Records as well as Sun Records recording studio. Stax became known for “sweet soul music” through such artists as

M

the MarKeys, Booker T. and the MGs, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam and Dave and Isaac Hayes. The Stax Museum reopened on its original location at McLemore and Crump in the summer of 2003 and offers visitors a complete history of “Soulsville USA.” One of Hi-Records’ premier artists was Al Green. Sun Records’ most famous recording artist was Elvis Presley and also boasted Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash among its recording artists. Elvis Presley’s Graceland is one of the five most visited home tours in America and is the most famous home in the United States after the White House. In 1991, Graceland was placed on the National Register of Historical Places. Over 600,000 visitors tour Graceland each year. Also located downtown is the beautiful Orpheum Theater which serves as a venue for performances by Ballet Memphis, the Memphis Symphony Orchestra and traveling Broadway shows, as well as the Orpheum Classic Movies series and other concerts. The city’s location makes Memphis a major distribution hub with two interstate highways intersecting the city.

For almost a century the University of Memphis has been a catalyst for progress in the city of Memphis, the state of Tennessee and the surrounding Mid-South region. From its inception as a normal school dedicated to the education of public school teachers, to its role today as an educator of technologicallysavvy graduates who face a complex world, the University of Memphis has always fulfilled its current mission while looking forward to and planning for its future. Exceptional students from Tennessee, from every other state in the nation and from almost 100 countries around the world choose to attend the University of Memphis. They come here on the recommendation of their major professors at European universities; they come here to study subjects that are offered nowhere else; they come to study alongside men and women who are recognized and respected throughout the academic and scientific communities as foremost in their fields. Ever forward-looking, the University of Memphis is poised to enter one of its most historic and productive periods. From the faculty and staff we have in place to our alumni and benefactors, our “people assets” have never been more willing, able and generous in their efforts to build an academic environment that makes a life-long impact on the young minds at the U of M. The University of Memphis was founded under the auspices of the General Education Bill, enacted by the Tennessee Legislature in 1909. Known originally as West Tennessee State Normal School, the institution opened its doors Sept. 10, 1912, with Dr. Seymour A. Mynders as president. Students in the first classes selected blue and gray as the school colors and the tiger as the mascot. Tradition holds that the colors, those of the opposing armies during the Civil War, were chosen in commemoration of the reuniting of the country after that divisive conflict. Over the next decade, The Desoto yearbook was created, the first library was opened in the Administration Building, the first dining hall was built and the first men’s dorm was built; today that dorm, Scates Hall, houses the College of Arts and Sciences’ Dean’s offices. In 1925 the name of the college changed to West Tennessee State Teachers College. Three years later, the Brister Library was built, named after two-term president John W. Brister. In 1931 the students created a campus newspaper, The Tiger Rag; and in 1935 the school’s agriculture department was discontinued. The college changed names again in 1941, becoming Memphis State College, and in 1946, J. Millard “Jack” Smith became president - the first alumnus to hold the position. In 1950 graduate studies were initiated, and in 1954 the school switched from a quarter to

a semester system. In 1957 the state legislature designated Memphis State full university status. In 1959 the university admitted its first African American students, and the first doctoral programs began in 1966. The 1970s, under President Cecil C. Humphreys, saw new buildings constructed across the campus, including a University Center and a 12-story library. In 1983 MSU became the first public university in Tennessee to gain accreditation of its entire curriculum. The 1990s were characterized by another name change and another building boom. In 1994 MSU became the University of Memphis, and the Ned R. McWherter Library was completed. Moving into the 21st century, the Kemmons Wilson School of Hospitality and Resort Management and the FedEx Institute of Technology have made their mark on the University landscape. Today, the University of Memphis is one of Tennessee’s three comprehensive doctoral-extensive institutions of higher learning. Situated in a beautiful park-like setting in the state’s largest city, it is the flagship of the Tennessee Board of Regents system. It awards more than 3,000 degrees annually. With an enrollment of approximately 21,000 students, The University of Memphis has 24 Chairs of Excellence, more than any other Tennessee university, and five stateapproved Centers of Excellence.

R.C. Johnson came aboard in February of 1996 and immediately set forth in bringing U of M Tiger athletics into national prominence. Over the last 14 years, the dynamic administrator has built Tiger Athletics into a nationally-recognized program that has been to five bowl games in the last seven years and played for the Men’s Basketball National Championship title in 2007-08. In addition, for the last 11 straight years, donations to the department have continued to rise, and on June 30, 2010, a record-setting $7.3 million was announced by the Tiger Scholarship Fund. Also in the last seven years under Johnson, the Tigers have captured 14 total C-USA championships in men’s basketball, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, women’s golf and men’s track. The men’s basketball program has garnered five regular-season titles (2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009) and four C-USA Tournament championships (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009), while the women’s soccer program claimed consecutive league championships in 2007, 2008 and 2009. Johnson is currently spearheading his second major capital campaign which benefits nearly every area of the Tiger Athletic Department. Included in the $12.9 million project is a new addition to the Athletic Office Building, a weight room and turf practice field for Tiger Football, a redesign of the Tiger baseball stadium that was unveiled for the 2010 season, the completed golf practice facility, a renovation of the Finch Center men’s basketball practice facility, a renovation of the women’s basketball and volleyball locker rooms and the Anfernee Hardaway Hall of Fame to honor Tiger athletes.

The Ambassador’s Club, which started with two members in 1997, has reached an all-time high of 41 members under Johnson. A significant revenue source for Tiger Athletics, members of the Ambassador’s Club pledge to commit $500,000.

T ige r T r a d iti o ns When the University of Memphis first fielded a football team in the fall of 1912, no one had selected a nickname for the squad. Early references to the football team tabbed them only as the Blue and Gray Warriors of West Tennessee Normal School. After the final game of the 1914 season, there was a student parade. During this event, several Normal students shouted, “We fight like Tigers.” The nickname was born. More and more the nickname “Tigers” was used, particularly in campus publications. But it did not catch on with the newspapers downtown. They continued to use “Normals” or the “Blue and Gray” when referring to the University. In the late 1920s, student publications and downtown newspapers began referring to the football team as the “Teachers” or “Tutors.” The Tiger nickname would return, but not until 1939 was it finally adopted as the official nickname for the University of Memphis. For over 35 years, the sideline mascot for the University of Memphis has been a Bengal Tiger named TOM. TOM attends all Tiger Football home games, and he can also be found at many other University events throughout the year. TOM travels in style in a custom-designed, climatecontrolled trailer, always with police escort. As one of only two universities in America with a live tiger mascot, The University of Memphis is unique in its Tiger Tradition. As a project of the Highland Hundred, no public or University funds are used to provide for TOM’s needs, and no University resources are required in his care. TOM is a powerful and majestic symbol of the University of Memphis, and his presence presents constant opportunities to educate Tiger fans young & old through the preservation of one of the world’s most recognizable endangered

species. The first Tiger, TOM, was procured by the Highland Hundred Football Boosters in 1972 and served the U of M faithfully for nearly 20 years until passing away in February of 1992. The Highland Hundred officially presented TOM to the University in a ceremony at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium on November 11, 1972, during a football game against the University of Cincinnati. TOM had initially been named ‘Shane’ at the suggestion of the breeder’s daughter. Once in Memphis, though, a contest was held to name the mascot. More than 2,500 entries were submitted. The list was ultimately reduced to two choices, Shane, and TOM, which stands for Tigers Of Memphis. TOM won. In the fall of 1991, the Highland Hundred Tiger Guard received TOM II as a gift from Tom and Carolyn Atchison of Florence, Alabama. TOM II would serve with pride for 17 years through

Shortly after TOM II’s death, the Tiger Guard began the search for a new tiger to serve as TOM III, and a stroke of good luck was realized in a discussion with the Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue & Educational Center in Rock Springs, Wis. Faced with three new cubs born August 31, 2008, after an unexpected pregnancy at their facility, founders Jeff Kozlowski and Jenny Meyer offered to donate one of their young tigers to serve as TOM III. TOM III was introduced at a press conference on November 17, 2008, and the Tiger Guard officially presented him to the University on November 22 during a football game against UCF.

The colors were chosen in an effort to show unity in a nation that was still recovering from the effects of the Civil War. The student body thought that by picking the colors of the North and the South, the school would show a togetherness among all students.
