The University of Alabama’s Director of Athletics since 1999, Mal Moore has made an indelible mark on one of the nation’s most storied athletic programs, leading a department that has enjoyed tremendous success athletically and academically and has undergone an unprecedented period of growth during his tenure. Through his guidance, Alabama’s athletic department remains focused on his vision of having all Crimson Tide athletic teams and student-athletes competitive at the highest level nationally while continuing to elevate athletic facilities at the Capstone to premier status nationally for all sports. During his tenure as Director of Athletics, Moore has overseen more than $200 million of capital improvements to University of Alabama athletic facilities. Those projects have encompassed the entire scope of all Crimson Tide athletic programs and have benefitted every Alabama studentathlete, coach, and administrator. Throughout his multi-faceted career, Moore has worked with a diversified field of constituents, from fellow coaches and former players, to fans and the business community. All of those experiences and relationships - in addition to his ability to unify those many constituents - have made him the ideal person to lead Alabama athletics in the 21st century. His leadership has been crucial in helping guide Alabama through a period that has been, at times, extremely challenging. His guidance and effort helped Alabama athletics weather the storm, while continuing to move in a positive direction toward a future that holds great promise. Moore’s dedication to and love of the University of Alabama was recognized on March 28, 2007, when as a permanent tribute to his life-long contribution to The University of Alabama, the Board of Trust-

10

ees of The University of Alabama officially dedicated the facility formerly known as The Football Building as the Mal M. Moore Athletic Facility. Under Moore’s direction, Alabama’s athletic teams have produced two national championships, the 2009 football title and the 2002 NCAA gymnastics championship, as well as several Southeastern Conference championships, winning titles in football, gymnastics, men’s basketball, men’s golf, men’s cross country, baseball and softball; taking SEC tournament titles in both baseball and softball. Alabama athletes have earned some of the highest honors the SEC and NCAA have to offer, including SEC Athlete of the Year, SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year, NCAA Top VIII, NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships and NCAA Sportsperson of the Year. These honors are over and above the individual conference and national titles that Alabama athletes continue to bring home to the Capstone on a regular basis.

During a coaching career that spanned 31 years, Moore spent 22 of those at Alabama with stops at Montana State, Notre Dame and the NFL’s St. Louis and Phoenix Cardinals. At Alabama, Moore started as Coach Bryant’s graduate assistant in 1964, then as defensive backfield coach for five years beginning in 1965 before becoming quarterbacks coach from 1971-82 and serving as the Tide’s first offensive coordinator starting in 1975. He would go on to coordinate all of the offensive plays for Alabama’s last four national championship teams. A 1963 graduate of The University of Alabama, Moore holds both an undergraduate degree in Sociology and a 1964 Master’s Degree in Secondary Education from the Capstone. Moore was born December 19, 1939, in Dozier, Ala. He and the late Mrs. Charlotte Moore have one daughter, Mrs. Steve (Heather) Cook of Scottsdale, Ariz., a granddaughter, Anna Lee, and a grandson, Charles Cannon.

In addition to making his mark on Alabama, Moore has also had a national impact as a key member of several prestigious NCAA and college football committees. Moore has served on the NCAA Division I Football Issues Committee, the SEC Athletic Directors Bowl Advisory Committee and the Big Six Conferences Minority Coaches Forum. Moore’s distinguished record of service to UA began more than 50 years ago when he joined the Crimson Tide football squad as a scholarship player for Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant from 1958-62. Moore has the distinction of being a part of eight national championship teams (1961, 1964, 1965, 1973, 1978, 1979, 1992 and 2009) with the first coming as a player, the next six during his coaching career and the last during his tenure as director of athletics. As a player and coach, he was also part of 14 SEC championships, and 27 bowl trips. He is the only individual connected with the Tide program to be a part of eight national championships.

The Crimson Tide men’s tennis team regularly gives back to the city of Tuscaloosa and the surrounding areas through various community service programs. Alabama student-athletes take time out of their hectic schedules to read to children, speak at local churches or to just stop by a hospital to brighten the day of patients. The tennis teams also take part in the annual Walk to Defeat ALS to help raise awareness for this disease that has personally affected the tennis program as women’s head coach Jenny Mainz’ father lost his courageous battle with ALS in January of 2009.

The Southeastern Conference men’s and women’s tennis programs continue to be among the nation’s leaders on the collegiate hardcourt and the trend continued this past season. On the men’s side, Georgia and Ole Miss advanced to the quarterfinals at the 2009 NCAA Division I Tennis Championships in College Station, Texas. Ole Miss freshman Devin Britton came back to beat Ohio State senior Steven Moneke 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 to take the individual NCAA title. Britton was the first freshman since USC’s Cecil Mamiit (1996) to win the national title and the first non-seeded player since Luke Smith of UNLV in 1997. He is the youngest of the three all-time freshmen to win the singles title which includes

19-year-old John McEnroe of Stanford in 1978. Britton defeated three seeded players en route to his national title run and ended Moneke’s 22-match winning streak. In doubes play, Tennessee’s John-Patrick Smith and Davey Sandgren dropped a tough threeset match in the title contest to Virginia’s 12th-ranked Dominic Inglot and Michael Shabaz, 3-6, 7-6(4), 6-4. Seventeen ITA All-America honors were bestowed upon SEC players in 2009. Since 1990, 143 honors in singles and 142 in doubles have been awarded to the conference players. The conference made another strong national showing on the women’s side as Georgia advanced to the semifinals.

In the singles tournament, Georgia’s Chelsey Gullickson advanced to the semifinals while in doubles, the Tennessee duo of Natalie Pluskota and Caitlin Whoriskey advanced to the semifinals. A total of seven student-athletes were named ITA All-American to put the totals at 110 singles and 120 double honors since 1990.

BY THE NUMBERS • 6 NCAA team championships (1992, ‘94, ‘96, ‘98, 2000, ‘03) • 8 NCAA runner-up teams (1987, ‘88, ‘89, ‘95, ‘97, ‘99, 2001, ‘02) • 20 straight years with a team in national semifinals (1987-2006) • 6 NCAA singles titles (1984, ‘88, ‘92, ‘93, ‘94, ‘96) • 5 NCAA doubles titles (1989, ’91, ‘96, ‘97, 2001) • 110 singles ITA All-Americans since 1990 • 120 doubles ITA All-Americans since 1990 • Three-peat of NCAA singles titles (1992, ‘93, ‘94)

Alabama Head Coach Billy Pate hopes this season is new look, same results for the men’s tennis team. The Crimson Tide will have a tough time replacing five seniors, as four of them won at least 20 singles matches last season. Four of the five also consistently competed in doubles for Alabama. But not all is lost from a season ago. “Without question, we lost a great deal of experience with the five outstanding seniors from last year’s squad,” said Pate. “They set some special milestones in their careers and their success will collectively be hard to replace, but they also mentored the underclassmen and taught them a lot about what it takes to lead and compete in the SEC. I’m encouraged because we have some experienced guys returning along with a collection of very talented young players. When your program has success, as we have, you’re bound to lose great players and be forced to bring along young ones. That’s part of the cycle, but it’s also part of what makes it exciting.” Returning is senior Saketh Myneni, who was ranked No. 10 in the Campbell’s/ITA preseason rankings. “Saketh has improved dramatically since he stepped on campus three years ago,” added Pate. “Two years ago as a sophomore he made a huge jump to go from playing No. 6 singles in our lineup to being our No. 1 player, a position he has held since. Last year he became more consistent at that position, posting significant wins down to the stretch of the spring despite being hampered by a hip injury. We will undoubtedly rely on his ability and leadership since we lost some key starters.” Last season, Myneni defeated three top 10 opponents and qualified for the NCAA Singles Tournament. Because of his successful junior campaign, he was named the ITA Player to

TENNIS

Watch for the Southeast Region this season. The only other senior for Alabama is Houssam Yassine, and although he saw limited action last season, he will also be expected to provide leadership and stability to this year’s team. Pate also has two sophomores returning that collected valuable playing experience last season. “We had two freshmen last year, Michael Thompson and Ricky Doverspike, who saw considerable playing time,” Pate explained. “Each of them had a great deal of success, and they will build on that experience.” Doverspike and Thompson contributed in both singles and doubles throughout their freshmen campaigns. Doverspike was a perfect 8-0 in dual singles matches, including a win over Furman in the First Round of the NCAA Tournament, and notched a team-high 29 doubles wins last season. Thompson finished last season with 14 dual wins in singles and was 7-2 at the No. 3 doubles position, including wins in the NCAA First and Second Rounds with Doverspike during his freshman season. The final two returning players from last season’s team are junior Trey Walston and sophomore Creighton Blanchard. Walston collected two dual singles wins in non-conference action last season, while Blanchard played two matches at the No. 3 doubles position against non-conference opponents. Although they both were limited in playing time last season, they bring more experience to the table this season for the Tide. “We have some guys that have been through the rigors of SEC competition,” stated Pate. “But we will definitely need to count on a few freshmen to contribute in a positive way for us to be at the level we achieved last year. I think we have a chance to do that, but

we will be relying heavily on some young, but talented, players.” Those young, talented players are Ian Chadwell, Harris Barnard, and Jarryd Botha. Chadwell and Barnard are recruits from the Southeast who could come in and make an immediate impact on the Alabama program. Chadwell won three consecutive state titles at Centennial High School in Tennessee, and was on track to become the first player in state history to win four straight before suffering an injury in the championship match. Barnard is an Alabama native who claimed a high school state title at the No. 1 position as a senior. Botha, a native of South Africa, joined the team in January. He will have little time to get adjusted to competing in the collegiate ranks, but will still add to the depth of this season’s team. Pate will also look to work Michael Davis into the lineup this season. Davis sat out last season, but should be ready to compete for a position this year. Alabama received major contributions a season ago from two freshmen, and it will need much of the same this season from its young players. “The strength of this team will be balance,” added Pate. “We have a proven No. 1 player in Saketh Myneni, and after him we have a collection of talented guys that could compete for positions from top to bottom. We’ll have healthy competition for playing time, and I think with a veteran at No. 1 singles, coupled with the depth throughout the lineup, we should be solid at every position.” Alabama opened the fall season at the Southern Intercollegiate Championships in Athens, Ga., with Walston having the team’s best showing by reaching the Round of 32 in singles. Next, the Tide sent three players to the D’Novo/ITA All-American Championships in Tulsa, Okla., but only Myneni was able to pick up a win, as he advanced to the Round

23


of 32 before being eliminated by Jason Jung of Michigan. Alabama’s next stop was Cambridge, Mass. for the Harvard Fall Classic. Doverspike and Thompson went 2-1 in doubles over the three-day tournament, earning the Ned Weld Doubles Championship. The Tide then traveled to New Orleans for the Wilson/ ITA Southern Regional Championships, where the team had success in singles and doubles. Myneni and Doverspike both reached the Round of 16 in singles before losing, with Myneni having to pull out due to injury. In doubles, it was the duo of Walston and Yassine reaching the finals with a couple of close wins before losing in the championship match. Alabama closed out fall action by

hosting the Crimson Tide Fall Championships, which was the Tide’s most successful tournament of the season. Alabama claimed two of the tournaments’ seven singles draws thanks to wins by Thompson and Blanchard, while Davis also reached the final of his respective draw before suffering defeat. The Tide was equally successful in doubles, as Doverspike and Thompson reached the semifinals in one draw and the duo of Blanchard and Davis won the title in the other. “We saw some impressive success this past fall and summer from a few of players that haven’t seen a lot of playing time,” said Pate. “Houssam spent a lot of time last summer training and playing tournaments. He’s put in the

time and it paid off in doubles, as he and Trey were a surprise finalist at the ITA Regionals in New Orleans. Ricky had some good wins this fall and continues to develop. He’s poised for continued success, and I fully expect him to breakthrough this year at a high level. Also, Davis was undefeated in doubles this past fall going 9-0, so he clearly established a great track record on the doubles court.”

Sophomores Michael Thompson (l) and Ricky Doverspike won a combined 31 singles and 39 doubles matches in 2009.

“Winning is the ultimate goal, but I strongly believe in providing a framework to help our team accomplish many things on and off the court.” - Head Coach Billy Pate

When Billy Pate stepped onto campus eight years ago, he envisioned building a program on the foundation of consistency and stability. He has done that. Over the past seven years, Pate has led his squads to six NCAA Tournament appearances, including two trips to the NCAA Sweet 16. In his seven year tenure, Pate has coached seven individuals to the NCAA tournament in either singles or doubles and four All-SEC players, and landed six teams in the Top 40 national rankings, including three teams in the Top 20. Last season, Pate’s team finished with a record 21-8 and No. 16 in the final rankings. Alabama earned the right to be one of the 16 host teams for the NCAA First and Second Rounds, the first time a team had done that in school history. The Crimson Tide also had two players and two doubles teams finish in the top 100 in the nation. Four players finished the season with at least 20 wins, including an impressive 32-9 record from senior Michael Jung. In 2007, Pate led his squad to its best finish and highest team ranking since 1993. The 14th-ranked Crimson Tide made its second consecutive trip to the NCAA tournament where Alabama cruised by East Tennessee State and upset Duke to make its first trip to the Sweet 16 since 2003. Juniors Daniel Buikema and Mathieu Thibaudeau qualified for the NCAA tournament as the 23rd-ranked tandem and earned their first spot in the doubles draw. Buikema and Thibaudeau became only the 13th doubles pair in Alabama’s tennis history to compete in the NCAA doubles draw. The team’s success earned Pate recognition as well. The 2007 SEC Co-Coach of the Year earned the South Region Coach of the Year honor from the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA), after transforming Alabama tennis into a Southern powerhouse in a region that features the nation’s fiercest competition. In 2006, Pate led Alabama to its first winning season in three years and a berth to the NCAA tournament. Under Pate’s guidance, junior Joseph Jung made it to the second round of the NCAA tournament’s singles draw and posted his third 20-win season. Jung would achieve another 20-win season in 2007, the only Alabama player in history to reach that accomplishment. Pate’s first recruit at Alabama, Jung finished the 2006 season nationally ranked three times and led the Tide from the No. 1 singles slot the majority of his career.

In four years at GPC, Pate’s teams posted a 87-43 record and won three consecutive Junior College National Championships. The three-time recipient of the Max Grubbs award, given to the National Junior College Coach of the Year, has been named Coach of the Year thirteen different times by five organizations, including the United States Professional Tennis Association, the ITA, Georgia Professional Tennis Association and the National Junior College Athletic Association. Prior to his position at Georgia Perimeter, Pate served as the assistant coach of Atlanta Thunder of the World Team Tennis League, and in conjunction with his position with the Thunder, he was the Stadium Operations Director and Community Relations Director from 19931995. While on-the-court success is a Pate trademark, he knows that the overall key to success is a healthy balance between athletics and academics.

In his first year at the Capstone, Pate led Alabama to its first trip “Winning is the ultimate goal, but I strongly believe in providing a to the NCAA Sweet 16 in five years. The Crimson Tide defeated framework to help our team accomplish many things on and off the Marist and Harvard before falling to Baylor. court,” Pate said.
