RADFORD ATHLETICS

The Radford University athletic program offers 19 varsity sports, eight for men and 11 for women: men’s and women’s basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, tennis, indoor and outdoor track, along with field hockey, swimming, softball and volleyball for women, and baseball for men. The Dedmon Center and the outdoor athletic facilities, which surround the multi-purpose building are the award-winning focal point of a program that has grown rapidly the last three decades. The athletic program has grown dramatically since 1974-75, when men’s sports were first offered on a varsity level. Growth of the program has been rapid, but not random. Each step has been carefully controlled, with new sports being added only to meet existing demands and only after assurances for a quality operation could be met. The result is a well-balanced and highly successful program. Radford currently competes in the Big South Conference. A charter member of the young league, Radford has won 39 League titles in 10 different sports and has advanced to NCAA postseason play in seven sports. Highlander athletics offers strong support for its student-athletes. From academic advising to compliance services, Radford gives its student-athletes the support needed to be successful in the classroom. Radford’s athletic training and strength and conditioning programs allow the student-athletes to compete at their best possible level. A true team atmosphere, the Highlander family consists of each and every Radford student-athlete past and present, the coaches and athletics staff. Support for each program starts from within athletics and reaches out into the general university population and the community at large. Student-athletes and staff support each other, across sports, into training and the weightroom. In addition, strong personal bonds run throughout the Highlander family binding student-athletes, coaches and staff to each other.

LEADERS


Director of Athletics Since being introduced as Radford University’s Director of Athletics in the fall of 2007, Radford native Robert Lineburg has helped usher in a new era of Highlander athletics, marked by unprecedented on-and off-field improvements and successes. In his short time with the department, Lineburg has been the catalyst for a number of changes, particularly in areas such as facilities, personnel and strategic planning. His most visible influence to date has been on the Dedmon Center, where Lineburg has been involved with major renovations to the centerpiece of Radford athletics for more than 25 years. Beginning in the spring of 2008, the facility underwent transformations to the arena, including a new steel-supported roof, a new basketball floor, renovated athletic offices, a new-look natatorium, and improved athletic locker, training, and medical facilities. Along with the initial transformations to the Dedmon Center, an improved state-of-the-art strength and conditioning room, new ticket office and Learning Enhancement Center (LEC), which houses student-athlete academic support, were completed/ added in 2009. In 2010, facility upgrades included a new high-tech videoboard / sound system to the Dedmon Center as well as a new playing surface / irrigation system and dugouts to the Radford University Baseball Field. Lineburg has also overseen the hires of five new head coaches, as well as six new athletic administrators. His hires include women’s basketball head coach Taj Njongba, head volleyball coach Marci Jenkins, ROBERT LINEBURG women’s head golf coach Jeff RADFORD UNIVERSITY Beeler, head men’s soccer coach DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS Marc Reeves and the promotion of track and field interim director Brent Chumbley to head coaches’ status. Among the administrators added in Lineburg’s tenure are executive associate A.D. Randy Butt, head athletic trainer Chad Hyatt, assistant A.D. for communications Joey Beeler, director of student-athlete support services/senior women’s administrator Stephanie Ballein, Associate A.D. for external operations Greg Herring, and Director of Facilities Brad Epperley. As a result of the changes, Radford achieved a banner year in 200809: women’s soccer, men’s basketball, men’s tennis and softball claimed Big South conference crowns and advanced to NCAA Tournament play. Women’s soccer advanced to its fourth tournament, men’s basketball won the Big South regular-season and tournament title to advance to the NCAAs for the first time since 1998, men’s tennis made its third-straight appearance, and softball appeared for the first time and won Radford’s first-ever NCAA tournament game in any sport. Lineburg and the Highlanders backed their success in 2008-09 with a men’s tennis and softball Big South regular season title in 2009-10. Mickey Dean’s softball team went on to win their second straight conference tournament crown before advancing to the Athens, Georgia Regional final with two more NCAA Tournament victories. He and his staff have also been responsible for creating a five-year strategic plan for the Radford athletic department and building an athletics facilities master plan. Additional achievements include ushering in a new athletics Internet site (RadfordAthletics.com), and helping implement a new ticket system (Ticket Return). Lineburg and his staff have also hosted top-level competition, with five Big South championships taking place on the Radford campus from 2008-10..

In addition to making an impact on Radford athletics, Lineburg is also involved in a number of different organizations and committees. He is the chairman of the Big South Conference on Basketball Improvement, a member of the Big South ad-hoc Committee on Basketball Issues, and a member of the selection committee to select Radford University’s Vice President for Advancement. Prior to becoming Radford’s third Director of Athletics, Lineburg’s corporate knowledge was groomed as a marketing associate with Peloton Real Estate Partners in Dallas, Texas. Along with his business experience, Lineburg spent 15 seasons as a college basketball coach, including time as Southern Methodist’s interim head coach. Prior to serving as the Mustangs interim head coach, Lineburg spent eight years as an assistant at SMU. Following his interim tenure, he served two more seasons as an assistant coach at Southern Methodist. Lineburg’s coaching resume also includes assistant coaching positions with the men’s basketball programs at James Madison University and Emory & Henry College, as well as with the Dallas Mavericks summer league team. His coaching experience also took him through the Big South, as he spent time on the sideline at UNC Greensboro. A 1991 graduate of Roanoke College, Lineburg started his collegiate basketball career as a Highlander, where he was a two-year letterman before transferring to nearby Roanoke College to play his final two years. He earned his Bachelor’s in political science with a minor in history. In 1995, he received a Master’s Degree in education from Virginia Tech, where he was also a graduate assistant on the men’s basketball staff. Lineburg is the son of retired Radford High School football coach and athletic director Norman Lineburg and the brother of Dr. Mark Lineburg, the Superintendent of Bristol City Schools, Paul Lineburg, the Assistant Principal at William Byrd H.S. and Wayne Lineburg, who is in his first season as the offensive coordinator at the University of Richmond. He is married to the former Mary Parish, also a native of Radford.

STUDENT-ATHLETE SUPPORT SERVICES The mission of the Student-Athlete Support Services (SASS) office for Radford University Athletics is to promote, assist, and provide counsel to all student-athletes. Its primary, constant goal is to develop graduates and outstanding citizens who have contributed in the areas of athletic competition during their tenures of education. Located in the Dedmon Athletic Center, the newly established Learning Enhancement Center is equipped with computers, tutorial rooms, and a study lounge. The Learning Enhancement Center provides direction for student-athletes via academic counseling in conjunction with advisors from the respective colleges at Radford University. Academic support services such as tutoring and supervised study hall are provided, as well as career planning, monitoring of eligibility status, and a host of other guidance and advisory services.


DEDMON CENTER NATATORIUM The first major addition after the main portion of the Dedmon Center was complete, the Natatorium is home to the Radford Swimming and Diving team.

Completed in 1987, six years after the main building was finished, the facility features an eight-lane olympic-size pool with a diving well. Built with a fabric roof to match the architecture of the main arena, the Natatorium roof differs in that it is truss supported, not air supported. There is also ample seating for spectators. Athletic Department and Dedmon Center Staff offices overlook the pool. The facility hosts several meets throughout the year, including all of Radford’s home meets, as well as high school and club meets. A state-of-the-art, eight-lane scoreboard was added in the spring of 2006.

Natatorium Hours of Operation Monday – Thursday 8:00 am - 2:30 pm and 5:30 - 9:00 pm Friday: 8:00 am - 2:30 pm and 5:30 - 8:00 pm Saturday and Sunday: 12:00 - 5:00 pm Please note that the pool and or locker rooms will close for home basketball, volleyball and swim meets.

2009 in Review Despite a 2009-10 overall record of 2-10, the Radford swimming and diving team concluded the season attacking the record books. Freshman Emily Turner and sophomore Katie Shaffer both recorded breakout seasons for the Highlanders. Kicking off the season against College of Charleston, Shaffer broke her own record with a score 202.64, which surpassed her previous record on the one-meter by 11 points. In addition to Shaffer, Turner out touched all competitors in the 200-yard individual medley to win her first collegiate race with a time of 2:13.03. Her time placed her on the alltime Top-10 performers in that event. For her previous top-performances, Shaffer recorded her second career Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association Diver of the Week honor on Oct. 21, 2009. Against Randolph-Macon, the Highlanders captured five first-place finishes. Turner turned in a stellar performance, as she won the 100-yard breaststroke, 100-yard freestyle and 200-yard individual medley. Along with Turner, Colleen Miller snared her first win of her collegiate career in the 100-yard backstroke, while Whitney Friend also reached the wall first ahead of Randolph-Macon’s Tracy Spurrier in the 200-yard backstroke. Radford recorded seven personal bests and two new school records as the Highlanders fell to James Madison on Oct. 31. Shaffer continued her assault on the record books, breaking both her previous records on the one and three-meter boards. On the one-meter, she shattered her previous finish by 57 points with a total of 259.35, then took aim at her three-meter record, which she broke by 22 points, posting a score of 256.87. Kristi Freund, Mandy Smith, Kaitlyn Baker, Kathryn Ruch and Turner each recorded a personal best. Shaffer then went on to grab her third career Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association Diver of the Week honor for placing second in the one and three-meter diving events at the Highlander Invitational. She recorded a score of 231.60 on the one-meter board and 235.55 on the three-meter board. Shaffer’s three-meter score marks the third time she had eclipsed 235 points or more in the 2009 season.
