2010 Season Preview

Returning to Form Returning to Form Returning to Form Returning to Form

Coming off of head coach Tory Acheson’s first season with a losing record after 11 years at the helm of the Golden Eagles, the Tennessee Tech softball team has some extra incentive to turn things around in 2010 and return to its familiar position atop the Ohio Valley Conference. A youthful team a season ago, the Golden Eagles may be even younger this season and are without a senior on its 2010 roster. Despite his team’s youth, Acheson is confident his squad has gained valuable experience and will be much improved from the team that finished 26-31 overall and 10-12 in the OVC. Acheson acknowledges that the road may be a bit bumpy at times and scattered with some growing pains, but in his opinion, experiencing these difficulties will make his team stronger in the long run. “There are lots of challenges in being young,” Acheson said. “But, many of them are opportunities to take a potential negative and turn it into a positive.” One reason for Acheson’s optimism is because of a phrase that is popular among his peers. “There’s a saying I’ve heard from several coaches that I really respect: ‘The game doesn’t know,’” Acheson said. “The game doesn’t know that we don’t have any seniors. The game doesn’t know that we’re young. So we have to stop thinking that our youth is an excuse for us to not play the game the right way.” Additionally, Acheson believes that the Golden Eagle newcomers will be able to step in and provide a spark.

“This is a much stronger home schedule, and a much stronger schedule overall,” Acheson said. In OVC play, Tech hosts 14 games and plays 14 on the road. Home conference series are scheduled against Murray State, UT Martin, Eastern Kentucky and Southeast Missouri, plus a doubleheader against Jacksonville State. Tech goes on the road for league series at Austin Peay, Eastern Illinois, Tennessee State and Morehead State, and faces a single game at JSU. “The OVC schedule balances out a little better this year,” Acheson said. “It will be interesting going to Eastern Illinois early in the year. We’ve had a streak of bad luck playing them. Two years ago the entire series was snowed out up there and last year we fought Mother Nature for two days before we finally got to play.”

Outfield Roaming the outfield this season will be some familiar faces along with a couple of newcomers. Sophomore Jordan Leff earned the team’s Best Defensive Outfielder in her first Golden Eagle campaign and will call the shots from center field this season. Also returning from a strong 2009 season is junior Kaleigh Gates. Gates, the team’s Most Improved Player last season, has split time between the outfield and catcher in her first two seasons at Tech. “In the outfield, we are deep and talented,” Acheson said. “I think we’ll definitely be better defensively at two, if not all three, of the outfield spots.” Sophomores Brooke Basten and Erin Cutlip proved to be valuable commodities last season, especially with their contributions on

“Our freshman class this year is extremely talented,” Acheson said. “There are many players in this class who we are counting on to make contributions this year. I think we could see freshmen starting in several key positions for us.” The freshmen will get their first taste of collegiate action when the season begins at a tournament at Middle Tennessee State, Feb. 1213. The Golden Eagles are scheduled to face UM Kansas City and Miami (Ohio) before battling the host Lady Blue Raiders. That tournament is the first of five on Tech’s schedule this season. The Golden Eagles will also play tournaments at Kennesaw State, UT Chattanooga, Georgia Tech and Tennessee as part of a 28game stretch in the first 31 days of the season. The Golden Eagles will also have the opportunity to play in front of their home fans a few more times this season. After playing just 16 games in Cookeville in 2009, Tech will run out onto the Tech Softball Field a total of 22 times this season.

2010 Season Preview the bases. The duo may be even more of a factor this season. “We’ve got a little more team speed, and I think that we will try to utilize that to make our offense more dynamic,” Acheson said. Junior Anna Zdroik may make the move back into the outfield after playing first base last season to provide some extra depth and experience, while freshman Chanelle Spalding and junior transfer Abbey Hayes will both see time in the outfield.

INfield Acheson has loads of talent and versatility in his group of infielders in 2010 led by returning first team All-OVC selection Lacie Coquerille. The junior was a bright spot for Tech a season ago at shortstop and will be a team leader again this season, likely at second base. Coquerille paced the squad with a .320 batting average, 54 hits and 31 runs scored while earning the team’s Best Defensive Infielder award. Also coming back from last year’s team will be sophomores Whitney Cummings and Jessica Steele, both of whom started the majority of games in their first campaign. Redshirt freshman Samantha Everett will have the opportunity to play in her first full season after an ankle injury prematurely ended her season last year, while true freshmen Stacey Butts, Melody Christian, Brittney Spalding and Lindsey Umberger will all have opportunities to contribute right away.

Whitney Cummings

consistent infielders to probably having seven or eight infielders fighting for four spots.” Acheson expects that the competition amongst his players for playing time will ultimately prove to be beneficial for his team. “I think that the competition is good for our players because it pushes them to excel more,” Acheson said. “We have a few true utility players who can play all four positions on the infield, which is good from a depth standpoint.”

Pitching The Golden Eagle rotation got a boost a season ago thanks to Holly Thomas, and Acheson hopes that freshman Claudia Harke can provide that again in 2010. “In the circle, Claudia Harke pitched very well during the fall season,” Acheson said. “I was very impressed by her.” Thomas, a sophomore, was the team’s Pitcher of the Year award recipient last season and led the team with 14 wins and a 2.90 ERA. She also proved to have a keen eye at the plate where she took a team-high 24 walks. “Holly pitched very well for us at times last season,” Acheson said. “Her and Claudia will be competing for who gets the ball in the big games this season.” Junior Maddie Schmissrauter pitched through injuries for much of last season and still managed 11 wins for the second consecutive season, while Whitney Cummings, who also plays first base, may also see an expanded role in the circle after appearing in six games a season ago. “Both Whitney and Maddie are very capable of winning games for us,” Acheson said. “I feel like we’re strong three to four deep in the rotation and especially stronger at the top with our players pushing each other to get better.” Freshman Beth Miller will also join the Golden Eagle rotation after playing four years at Watertown (Wis.) High School.

Catching Behind the plate, the Golden Eagles have junior Callie Schmidt returning for her junior campaign. She finished second on the team in home runs last season with six and has been focusing on improving her defensive play going into this season.

Head Coach 12th Season Wisconsin-Milwaukee (‘92)

2003 OVC Coach of the Year 2006 OVC Coach of the Year

Since becoming the leader of the Tennessee Tech softball program in 1999, head coach Tory Acheson has taken the Golden Eagles to new heights. Currently the longest tenured coach at Tennessee Tech, Acheson has recorded at least 25 wins in each of his 11 seasons at the helm and has averaged 36 wins per season during that span. Now in his 12th season in Cookeville, Acheson will look for his young Golden Eagles to build upon their OVC Tournament run from a season ago and bring home another OVC

title to the Upper Cumberland. Acheson has displayed wealth of knowledge as well as an unprecedented work ethic in order to improve the Tech program — and its student-athletes — each and every day. With more than 1,000 wins to his name, Acheson knows what it takes to go above and beyond expectations and to maintain high standards. He takes pride in everything his team does both on and off the field as he ensures his teams stay committed to academics and community service. Known for his winning traditions on the field, Acheson has also shown his off-the-field character time and time again. He is a firm believer in helping the community, and each year, his team takes part in several community service projects ranging from helping with food drives to building a home with Habitat for Humanity. Acheson’s commitment to academics is evident annually as his 2008 squad was awarded the National Fastpitch Coaches Association highest academic honor for Division I. Tech softball ranked first on the list of the “Girls Got Game” Top Ten All-Academic Teams with a team GPA of 3.540. His 2009 squad also displayed academic prowess, ranking fourth in the nation with a 3.509 team GPA. Acheson has coached five CoSIDA Academic All-Americans and ten Academic All-District players. He also had 91 players named to the OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll, which is presented annually to student-athletes who have at least a 3.25 GPA. Prior to his arrival at Tech, Acheson was head coach at Wisconsin-Parkside and

Head Coach Tory Acheson had 13 players named All-American. His teams were named an Academic Top Ten Team all six of his seasons at Parkside by the NFCA and ranked as high as third in Division II in 1997. Acheson has a record of 430264-1 at Tennessee Tech and is only the fourth coach in Tech athletics history with 400 career wins. As a twotime OVC Coach of the Year (2003 and 2006), he has led the Golden Eagles to four regular season titles as well as five OVC tournament championships. His teams have also participated in an NCAA play-in game in 2001, and played four times in the NCAA Regionals (Texas 2003, Georgia 2005, Knoxville 2006, Tuscaloosa 2007). Since his arrival, the Golden Eagles have used a combination of strong non-conference competition and a tough league schedule to be a force at the national level annually. Winning has been something Acheson has done wherever he has been. In 1995, Acheson led Parkside to its first NCAA Division II national tournament where the Rangers finished fourth. The season included an upset win over Division I Top 10 foe Nebraska. The following year, his team was ranked number one in the national Division II polls from the second week

Acheson guided Tech to its third consecutive NCAA Regional appearance in 2007 where they beat #5 Alabama then downed California on ESPN2.

until the final poll. That team finished 64-6-1 overall, won the program’s first Great Lakes Valley Conference title and earned a return trip to the NCAA tournament where it claimed seventh place. In 1997, Parkside reached new heights under Acheson, compiling its second-straight 60-win season (6210), repeated as GLVC champs and placed second in the national tournament. In 1998, his team compiled a 40-20 overall record, including a 22-7 mark in conference match-ups, while playing only seven home games. In addition to his work on the field, Tory is a frequent speaker at camps and clinics throughout the Midwest and Southeast, including the NCAA Yes Clinic at the NCAA national championships. He has been involved with player development through summer camps and clinics, reaching more than 1,000 young players each year. A native of Dubuque, Iowa, Tory earned both his bachelor’s degree in secondary education and his master’s degree from UW-Milwaukee. After nine seasons as head softball coach at Whitnall (Wis.) High School, he was named softball coach at Parkside in 1993. He also served as facilities/program manager for the athletic department as well as associate professor for five years. Acheson and his staff take great pride in their facilities, which they have made improvement to every season. Last year, he built an obstacle course for use by student-athletes to hone their physical skills and fitness. He also recycled discarded seats from the Hooper Eblen Center and attached them to the bleachers at the softball field to provide a more comfortable seating area for fans. Other renovations from years past include two decks atop either dugout that provide better viewing areas for patrons. His wife, Terry, has served as his assistant coach throughout his career. The couple has a son, Chuck, who is currently in his fifth year at Tennessee Tech.

2009 In Review

A Season of Learning:

A look back at the 2009 Golden Eagle softball season.

The 2009 season had its ups and downs for the Tennessee Tech softball team. After dropping their first two games of the season, the Golden Eagles rebounded to dismantle No. 20 Virginia Tech, 15-0, to pick up their first win of the campaign. Tech went on to play 21 more games away from Cookeville before finally returning to play at home.

However, the Golden Eagles earned a spot in the OVC Tournament for the 16th season in a row as the fifth seed and squared off against UT Martin in the first round. Tech upset fourth-seed Skyhawks, 1-0, in the opening game before taking down top-seed Jacksonville State, 5-2, in the second round to put itself in a good position to make a deep run.

The Golden Eagles used a 6-1 homestand to improve to 1715 on the season but could not get more than two games over .500 the rest of the way before ending the regular season on a seven-game road trip in which the team went 1-6 to drop to 24-29.

In Tech’s third-round game, the Golden Eagles fell to Southeast Missouri, 7-2, to put them in an elimination game against their first-round opponent, UT Martin. This time the Skyhawks would get the best of Tech, 4-2, to end the Golden Eagles’ season before going on to win the tournament and earn a spot in the NCAA Tournament. Sophomore Lacie Coquerille and freshman Holly Thomas earned the top honors when Tennessee Tech softball coach Tory Acheson announced the Golden Eagle softball team awards for 2009. Coquerille took home three team awards including Most Valuable Player, Best Defensive Infielder and Best Offensive Player. Thomas was named Pitcher of the Year and Freshman of the Year. Senior Kristina Hortert captured the Coach’s Award, while sophomore Kaleigh Gates was named Most Improved and freshman Jordan Leff earned Best Defensive Outfielder. A sophomore from Rocky Face, Ga., Coquerille led the team at the plate with a .320 batting average, 51 hits, 31 runs scored and 11 sacrifice hits. A First Team All-OVC selection, Coquerille struck out just 11 times in 183 plate appearances. She also played solid defense at both shortstop and second base, helping the Golden Eagles turn twice as many double plays as their opponents. Coquerille’s 12 double plays ranked second on the team while she was third in total putouts with 99.

Holly Thomas earned team Pitcher of the Year and Freshman of the Year honors during her first season with the Golden Eagles.

“Lacie had a solid year under trying circumstances,” Acheson said. “She was forced out of position a lot of the season, and she did a good job of accepting the challenge. She had a productive season in spite of it.”

2009 In Review team. Acheson praised Hortert’s leadership. “Tina was the ‘unsung hero’ of the team because of her leadership and hard work,” he said. “Even though her action on the field was limited, she did a tremendous job in leadership with the younger players, pushing them in the right direction. “She was the bridge to our NCAA teams from a couple years ago, and she tried to educate the younger players on what it takes to have that kind of season,” Acheson said. The Most Improved Player award went to Gates, a sophomore from Tucson, Ariz. Gates ballooned her batting average from .200 last year to .289 in the 2009 season. She hit her first five career home runs and played in 48 games. She more than doubled her total bases from 25 last year to 57 this season. “Kaleigh really stepped up this year,” Acheson said. “She was much more disciplined at the plate and you could really see the light bulb going on, offensively and defensively. I think we’re going to see continued development and improvement in her career.”

Lacie Coquerille earned first team All-OVC honors and also was named team MVP, Best Defensive Infielder and Best Offensive Player.

Thomas received a pair of post-season honors as Golden Eagle Freshman of the Year and Pitcher of the Year. A rookie from Ooltewah, Tenn., Thomas hurled a pair of one-hit shutouts against eventual OVC Tournament champion UT-Martin en route to her 14-16 won-loss record. She had a team-best ERA of 2.90 and struck out 118 batters in her 183.1 innings pitched. On the offensive side, belted five home runs and four doubles and led the team in walks with 24.

Splitting her playing time between shortstop and left field, Leff impressed Acheson enough to be named the Best Defensive Outfielder for 2009. A freshman from Rowlett, Tex., Leff made several diving catches while committing just three errors all year. “Jordan made some exceptional defensive plays, and she gets a great jump on the ball,” Acheson said. “She did a great job in the outfield, despite spending some time in the infield.

“Holly really had an impressive freshman season,” Acheson said. “She showed flashes of brilliance, and really stepped up, partly because of Maddie’s (Schmissrauter) injury, but mostly because of her own performances.” The 2009 Coach’s Award, given to the player who demonstrates the most heart, went to Hortert, the only senior on the roster. A pitcher from Louisville, Ky., Hortert appeared in 22 games this year after missing her entire junior year due to injury. Coming into the season, she was the only player with more than one year of experience on the

Tennessee Tech head coach Tory Acheson led the Golden Eagles to their 16th consecutive OVC Tournament.

2009 OVC Tournament

T E N N E S S E E T E C H 1 , U T MA R T I N 0 For the second time in two weeks, Tennessee Tech freshman Holly Thomas has pitched a complete-game, 1-0 shutout over UT Martin. This time, the clutch victory came Thursday in the first round of the 2009 Ohio Valley Conference Tournament at Jacksonville State, allowing coach Tory Acheson’s team to advance into the winner’s bracket later in the day. The fifth-seeded Golden Eagles (25-29) will challenge top-seeded JSU. Thomas (14-15), who was named Wednesday night to the OVC All-Newcomer Team, limited the Skyhawks to six hits over seven innings. She walked two and struck out two. UTM starter Kara Harper (16-8) took the loss, going all seven innings and allowing just one unearned run on nine hits. She walked one Golden Eagle and struck out three. Seven of the nine hitters in Tech’s lineup had hits in the game, but the Golden Eagles could only scratch up one run, that coming in the top of the fifth. Thomas led off the inning with a single, but was erased at second when Cassidy Skeen hit into a fielder’s choice. With two outs, all-OVC sophomore Lacie Coquerille delivered a single to center to put two runners aboard,

and Kaleigh Gates reached on a fielding error to load the bases. Sophomore Callie Schmidt singled to the left side, scoring Skeen for the 1-0 lead, and Thomas made it stick. The Skyhawks threatened in their half of the fifth with a single, wild pitch and walk, but Thomas got a fly out to end the inning. Each team left two runners aboard in the sixth inning. Harper left runners on the corners with a groundout in the top of the frame, then Thomas coaxed an inning-end groundout to strand Skyhawks at first and second after the Skyhawks rallied with back-to-back, one-out singles. After Tech went 1-2-3 in the top of the seventh, Thomas got two ground ball outs to open the bottom of the inning. A walk put the tying run on base, but a pop up to second base ended the contest. The Skyhawks (33-21) had also threatened with a couple of hits in the second inning, putting runners on first and second with nobody out. A fly out was followed by a double-play grounder back to Thomas to end it. Sophomores Kaleigh Gates and Katie Betry had two hits each for the Golden Eagles.

T E N N E S S E E T E C H 5 , J A C K S O N V I L L E S TAT E 2 Tennessee Tech stunned No. 1 seed Jacksonville State, 5-2, in the final game of the day Thursday at the 2009 Ohio Valley Conference Tournament, sending the Golden Eagles (26-29) into the winner’s bracket final tomorrow against Southeast Missouri at 3 p.m. Tech overcame an early 1-0 deficit against the Gamecocks, using a two-run double from Kaleigh Gates in the fourth to take a 3-1 lead. The Golden Eagles got back-toback home runs from Lacie Coquerille and Gates in the top of the seventh for insurance in beating JSU (38-12) for the first time this season. Starter Maddie Schmissrauter (11-10) got the win, work-

ing the first four innings and allowing just two hits and one run. Freshman Holly Thomas, who got a win earlier in the day, pitched the final 2.2 innings to earn her first save of the year. The loss went to JSU starter Karla Pittman (15-2), the OVC Pitcher of the Year who was tagged with an “L” for only the second time this season. She yielded three unearned runs and five hits in four innings. Ashley Eliasson worked the final three innings, allowing just two hits, both home runs. The Golden Eagles, the fifth seed in the tourney, meet No. 2 Southeast Missouri Friday, with the winner advancing to the Championship game Saturday. SEMO downed More-

2009 OVC Tournament head State, 1-0, earlier Thursday. The Gamecocks manufactured a 1-0 lead with a run in the bottom of the first, after the Golden Eagles had threatened in the top of the first frame. Coquerille singled and Gates walked, then each advanced on a wild pitch, giving Tech a couple of runners in scoring position, but Pittman got out of the jam with a strikeout and ground out. JSU made it 1-0 as Chrissy O’Neal led off the bottom of the inning with a single, and with one out Allie Barker singled to center, and Courtney Underwood walked to load the bases. A sacrifice fly from Meredith Sellers plated O’Neal, before Schmissrauter stifled the rally. Tech tied the contest with an unearned run in the top of the third. Jordan Leff led off with a single to left, then moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Coquerille. Gates singled, putting runners on the corners, and Callie Schmidt’s fly ball behind first base was dropped, allowing Leff to race home. The Golden Eagles got a clutch bases loaded, two-run double from Gates in the top of the fourth to take a 3-1 lead. Brooke Basten beat an infield grounder and moved to third on a sacrifice bunt and a groundout, before Leff was hit by a Pittman offering and Coquerille walked to fill the sacks. Gates looked at two pitches outside the strike zone, then drove a ball deep to left that banged off the fence and scored Leff and Basten. JSU got a leadoff runner aboard when Underwood was hit by a pitch to open the fourth, but Leff made a web gem to erase the threat. Leff snatched a sinking line drive off her shoelaces in left to retire Sellers, then got the ball quickly to the infield where Jessica Steele’s relay to first doubled off Underwood at first. Coach Tory Acheson replaced Schmissrauter to open the fifth and senior Kristina Hortert got a strikeout to start the inning before yielding a single. That brought in Thomas, who had tossed a seven-inning shutout victory earlier in the day against UT Martin. Two ground balls later the inning was complete. Thomas gave up a single and wild pitch in the sixth, but didn’t allow anything more as Tech carried its 3-1 lead into the seventh. Coquerille led off with a home run to left field, her fifth of the season, to make it 4-1. Gates then followed with her fifth dinger of the year, also to left, to make it a 5-1 lead. Tech put two more runners aboard before a strikeout ended the rally. Jacksonville had a single and a walk, then pushed a run across against Thomas on a groundout – the first run allowed all day by the freshman – to make it 5-2. A grounder to first was the final out of the contest. Gates finished the day 3-for-3 with three RBI on the double and home run. Coquerille had two of Tech’s seven hits. Nobody had more than one hit for JSU, which managed just five singles off Tech’s three pitchers.

SOUTHEAST MISSOURI 7, TENNESSEE TECH 1 Red-hot Southeast Missouri struck quickly Friday afternoon, scoring three times in the top of the first and twice more in the second, then rode its advantage to a 7-1 victory over Tennessee Tech in the winner’s bracket final of the 2009 Ohio Valley Conference softball tournament. The Golden Eagles (26-30) will need to win three times Saturday to claim the championship, beginning with a game at 10 a.m. against UT Martin, which eliminated Jacksonville State, 2-0. A win over the Skyhawks would put Tech into the championship game against SEMO (29-19), where the Golden Eagles would need to win twice for the title. The damage came quickly against starter Holly Thomas, as Renee Kertz and Alex Ramirez each singled, and with one out Jennifer Vasquez popped a 2-2 pitch over the left field fence for a 3-0 lead. The Redhawks loaded the bases to start the second inning, and Kertz delivered a two-run single up themiddle to make it 5-0. It could have gotten worse, but Thomas got Vasquez to pop up to end the second inning, leaving two runners stranded. The Golden Eagles got one run back in the bottom of the second. Katie Betry singled to lead off the frame and with two outs, Cassidy Skeen singled. Jordan Leff’s double sent Betry home, but that was as much as Tech could muster. Sophomore Maddie Schmissrauter relieved Thomas to start the third inning, and held SEMO scoreless for the next three innings, but the Golden Eagles couldn’t produce a comeback against Redhawk starter Giana Zimmerman and the score remained 5-1 through five innings. Schmissrauter appeared to be close to ending the SEMO sixth, giving a leadoff single before retiring the next two hitters. With two outs, Depuis singled and Kertz walked to load the bases, and Shelby Stein drove a two-run double to center to make it 7-1. Senior Kristina Hortert relieved Schmissrauter and ended the frame with a strikeout of Ramirez. Thomas (14-16) took the loss, working two innings and allowing five runs on seven hits. Schmissrauter pitched 3.2 innings and was responsible for two runs on five hits. Hortert was perfect over the final 1.1 innings. Zimmerman (19-8) went the distance for SEMO, pitching seven innings and allowing just four hits. She walked two and struck out nine Golden Eagle batters. Five different SEMO hitters had multiple hit games as the Redhawks combined for 12 hits off Tech’s three pitchers.

U T MA R T I N 4 , T E N N E S S E E T E C H 2 UT Martin managed just an unearned run and three hits Saturday morning, but all three cleared the fences for solo home runs, and that added up to a 4-2 victory for the Skyhawks over Tennessee Tech, eliminating the Golden Eagles from the 2009 Ohio Valley Conference Tournament. UT Martin (36-22) earned the right to advance to the championship game against Southeast Missouri, while Tech headed home with a 26-31 overall record. The teams traded home runs for the first two runs of the game. Megan Williams swatted a two-out home run in the top of the first inning, and Callie Schmidt answered in the top of the second with a leadoff blast to center field to tie the score. UTM took advantage of two umpiring calls to plate an unearned run and take a 2-1 lead. Laura Lindow walked to open the inning and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt. With two outs, a safe call at first put runners on the corner and on the very next pitch, Schmissrauter was called for an illegal pitch, allowing both runners to advance, with Lindow trotting home. Megan VanArsdale led off the bottom of the third with a solo home run, only the second hit allowed by Tech starter Maddie Schmissrauter. That made it 3-1. The Golden Eagles trimmed the deficit to 3-2 in the top of the sixth as Kaleigh Gates singled, moved to second on a groundout, and scored when Whitney Cummings ripped a ball to left field. The outfielder made a diving attempt for the ball, but it dropped and was ruled an error, scoring Gates. Schmidt had two of Tech’s five hits off Kara Harper (18-8), who went the distance for UT Martin and got the win. She didn’t walk a batter and struck out three. Schmissrauter (11-11) took the loss, working 5.1 innings and allowing three hits. She walked three and struck out four. Kristina Hortert pitched the final 2/3 of an inning.

here's no question Tennessee Tech University is a great place to get an education. And Cookeville is a great college town. The largest micropolitan area in Tennessee and one of the top 40 micropolitan areas in the nation, Cookeville has consistently been rated among the top 10 most affordable regions in the nation. Cookeville boasts a mild climate, with an average temperature of 57 and four distinct seasons. Located within a day's drive of 75 percent of the nation's population, Cookeville is just off Interstate 40, which runs from the east coast to California. City life is easily accessible, as well, because Cookeville is situated within 100 miles of Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga — three of Tennessee's major metropolitan areas. The seat of Putnam County, Cookeville is the heart of a three-county alliance known as the Highlands, which centers Tennessee's 14-county Upper Cumberland region. We have hundreds of acres of unspoiled nature — from championship golf courses to natural preserves, state parks and top-rated lakes — close to home.There's plenty of nature inside the city limits, too; the City of Cookeville tends nine parks, including Cane Creek Park, a 262-acre natural area with a 56-acre lake. And while Cookeville is a relatively small town, we have no lack of culture. We are one of the smallest cities in the U.S. with a full-blown symphony orchestra, and our area attracts visual artists and craftspeople from across the nation, thanks to the Appalachian Center for Craft, a satellite campus of TTU. Drama also takes center stage here, with the 456-seat Cookeville Performing Arts Center cranking out productions year-round, including the award-winning Drama Center Backstage series. Cookeville is home to three museums — the Cookeville Depot Museum, the Cookeville History Museum and the Cookeville Children's Museum — and a year-round slate of events, including regular excursion trains and the annual Fall FunFest. A walkable downtown shopping district and an impressive roster of national chain stores give the retail segment a small-town feel with big-city convenience. Add to that our more than 100 restaurants and 1,400 hotel rooms, and you'll quickly see that Cookeville offers something for everyone.

Ohio Valley Conference

From left: Beth DeBauche, Commissioner; Jennifer Gibbs, Assistant Commissioner for Championships; Heather Brown, Director of Media Relations; Brian Pulley, Assistant Commissioner for External Affairs; Kyle Schwartz, Assistant Commissioner for Media Relations; Brad Walker, Associate Commissioner/Chief Operating Officer.

Entering its 62nd year, the Ohio Valley Conference continues to build on the success that has made it the nation’s eighth-oldest NCAA Division I conference. For only the second time in a decade, the Conference expanded by adding Southern Illinois University Edwardsville as the league’s 11th member in 2008. The move expanded the OVC’s geographical footprint to the St. Louis market and marked the first change in membership since expanding to the state of Alabama (Jacksonville State, Samford) in 2003. For the 2009-10 school year the league will see a change in leadership as the seventh Commissioner in league history, Beth DeBauch, was named in late July. The last three commissioners of the league have moved onto jobs as the commissioner of the Big Ten, Big 12 and the Mid-American Conferences. The OVC’s proud past dates back to 1948, but seeds for the new league were actually planted in 1941. It was then that Roy Stewart, the athletics director at Murray State, Charles (Turkey) Hughes, the athletics director at Eastern Kentucky, and Kelly Thompson, the public relations director at Western Kentucky, first broached the idea of forming a new conference. Discussions were put on hold by World War II, but reemerged Feb. 27-28, 1948 at the Kentucky Hotel in Louisville as the three original institutions combined with Morehead State, Louisville and Evansville to form the OVC. In the 1950s, the OVC became a pioneer on a much more significant scale socially. During times of racial segregation, league member Morehead State became one of the first non-traditionally black midsouthern institutions to accept a black student. In 1958, Marshall Banks earned athletically-related aid at Morehead, which signed a second black athlete, Howard Murphy, a year later. In 1961, Murphy earned all-conference recognition as a halfback in football. With racial barriers broken, the rest of the institutions in the league began to provide educational and athletic opportunities to African-Americans. The playing field is not the only place where OVC athletes are working hard. The league also recognizes excellence in the classroom. Six Scholar-Athlete Awards are presented yearly

70

to male and female athletes, while others are commended for their academic success by being Medal of Honor recipients or earning a spot on the Commissioner’s Honor Roll. Additionally, the league annually presents one institutional Academic Achievement Award, as well as separate team awards in each Conference-sponsored sport. Since the College Sports Information Directors of American (CoSIDA) Academic All-America program began, the Ohio Valley Conference has had 179 student-athletes honored with the award, including 25 over the last three years (200607 to the present). Through the early years of the league, administrators wrestled with fan behavior due to the close proximity of the Conference members and the intense rivalries which developed. Just as it did decades ago, the OVC took the leadership role on what has become a national issue. In 1995, the OVC implemented a first-of-its-kind “Sportsmanship Statement,” a policy which promotes principles of fair play, ethical conduct and respect for one’s opponent. The statement has become a model for others to follow across the nation, and has answered the challenge of the NCAA Presidents Commission to improve

The Ohio Valley Conference 215 Centerview Drive, Suite 115 Brentwood, Tenn. 37027 (615) 371-1698 www.ovcsports.com

Tennessee Tech Softball

sportsmanship in collegiate athletics. Additionally, the OVC annually presents the Steve Hamilton Sportsmanship Award, in honor of the former Morehead State student-athlete, coach and athletics director, to a junior or senior studentathlete with significant athletic contributions who best exemplifies the characteristics of sportsmanship and citizenship. Most recently, the Conference has also implemented the OVC Institutional and Team Sportsmanship Awards, which are presented to one institution and 18 sport-specific teams voted by their peers to have best exhibited the standards of sportsmanship and ethical conduct as outlined by the OVC and NCAA. The vision of leadership demonstrated by the Founding Fathers in 1948 remains alive today as the Ohio Valley Conference prepares for the future. One example is in regard to the current trend in collegiate athletics administration for increased involvement of university presidents in setting policies and making rules. The presidents of OVC institutions, however, have always governed the Conference, long before presidential governance became a national theme. The Ohio Valley Conference sponsors the following sports: baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis and track for men, and basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track and volleyball for women. In addition, the OVC also sponsors the combined men’s and women’s sport of rifle. Now in its seventh decade of competition, the Ohio Valley Conference has grown significantly from its humble beginnings while increasing the number of athletics opportunities it provides for students. Current league representatives include charter members Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State University and Murray State University, along with Austin Peay State University, Eastern Illinois University, Jacksonville State University, Southeast Missouri State University, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Tennessee State University, Tennessee Technological University and the University of Tennessee at Martin.

This Is Tennessee Tech u One of the “Top Southern Public Universities” by U.S. News & World Report u One of the “Best Southeastern Universities” and “America’s Best College Values” by The Princeton Review u Among “America’s 100 Best College Buys” by Institutional Research and Evaluations, Inc. u One of the nations “50 Best Value Public Colleges” by the Princeton Review Where Quality Counts

For more than 90 years, Tennessee Tech has served the various needs of the region, the state and beyond. Not only is Tech renowned as a fine institution of higher education, it also serves as a public resource center and encourages scholarly research and creative activity by its faculty and students. Today, Tech makes a number of contributions to economic development locally, regionally and nationally. Tech’s 66,000-plus alumni occupy positions of leadership in education, business, industry, government and public service. Tennessee Tech is widely known as an institution noted for its academic quality — an institution where the energies of the faculty, staff and students are devoted to ensuring that the university’s quality is maintained and enhanced. The university’s vision is guided by the “T.E.C.H.” framework — technological leadership, enrollment growth, a caring campus, and high quality. The university is divided into seven academic divisions offering 44 programs of study leading to the bachelor’s degree and 20 programs of study at the graduate level. More than 75 percent of the 370 full-time faculty members hold doctoral degrees. Considered one of the most picturesque campuses in the South — and one of the safest — the buildings carry an attractive Georgian style of architecture that lends the Tech campus an Ivy-league character. Tech was established in 1915 as Tennessee Polytechnic Institute, located on the site of its forerunner, Dixie College. TPI gained

Why we're the Golden Eagles

university status in 1965, reflecting the institution’s role as a multipurpose, state-supported university. Tech’s current enrollment continues to include students from almost all 95 Tennessee counties, along with students from more than 40 other states and about 40 foreign countries.

Campus Life

Tennessee Tech students know that there is a lot more to college life than what goes on in the classroom. Nearly 200 student organizations on campus offer activities ranging from academic, athletic, cultural, political, community-oriented, social to spiritual. At Tech, it’s easy to get involved and make friends. Campus recreation coordinates 11 intramural and club sports: basketball, bowling, flag football, golf, racquetball, rugby, soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball and wrestling. The Fitness Center is a free, full-service health club for students. It houses a fully equipped weight room, 25-meter indoor pool, cardiovascular equipment and an indoor track. Tech is also a center for the arts, presenting concerts, theatre productions, lectures, dance performances, films, workshops, demonstrations and art exhibits each year. And, of course there’s always an athletics event to attend. Tennessee Tech’s athletic teams compete in the Ohio Valley Conference for 16 sports on the NCAA Division I level, and students can attend all regular season athletic events absolutely free!

The Tennessee Tech Athletic Department unveiled a new brand on Aug. 31, 2006, with an all-new set of logos for the Golden Eagles. The brand is new, but the tradition remains — the name Golden Eagles. How did TTU adopt the name? In the first quarter of this century, Tennessee Polytechnic Institute was a tiny school, located in the rugged, mountainous Upper Cumberland region where Golden Eagles were plentiful, soaring above the lush, upland forests. It's easy to understand how those early students and faculty could narrow their choices for their athletic team's nicknames to "Golden Eagles" or "Mountaineers." On February 14, 1925, the nickname "Golden Eagles " was officially adopted. The school newspaper, The Oracle, printed a story that outlined the efforts of a committee to suggest several possible nicknames to Athletic Association members for their consideration. The two most popular names were "Golden Eagles" and "Mountaineers," and the association, by a vote of 139-18, proudly declared its preference. It wasn't until 27 years later that a tangible mascot found its way to the campus. Several Tech

students braved a driving night rainstorm to pilfer a huge block-tin eagle statue from the charred ruins of a resort hotel in Monteagle. They painted the creature - with a wingspan of over six feet - a glistening gold, and suspended it from the rafter for public inspection at the following day's basketball game in Memorial Gym. Then-Governor Frank G. Clement, a lifelong friend of the hotel owner, was in Cookeville to speak . He worked out a compromise between his friend and the school students, who wanted to retain the eagle as their mascot. Over the years, a wide variety of artwork and drawings have been used to represent the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles. Some of those include a drawing which appeared in media guides in the mid 1970s, and a cartoon-style mascot in the early 1980s that was dubbed ‘the purple chicken” by Tech students.

Academic Support

Winning in the Classroom Tennessee Tech’s commitment to its student-athletes is evident. The support personnel and resources available provide Golden Eagle student-athletes with the tools needed for success. The success of Tennessee Tech University’s athletic teams is tied closely to the academic progress of each student-athlete, and the academic performance of each Tech student-athlete is closely monitored by the coaching staff as well as an experienced staff in Academic Services. Tech’s student-athletes continue to excel in the classroom. Each semester, the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll pays tribute to more than 150 students in athletics, including athletes, trainers, managers and cheerleaders, and the overall GPA of the department has climbed steeply in the past six semesters. Student-athletes are the most visible component of a university, entertaining thousands of fans, students, alumni, family and friends. Their athletic abilities and achievements are a focus for national attention, as athletic events not only bring back faithful alumni, but serve as a welcome mat to the university for potential new Marilyn Borch-Jensen students. Academic Student-athletes devote many hours to practice, conditioning and training in an effort to be the best they Advisement can be. These hours are not required by non-athletes in the student body, and these extra demands can compete Secretary with academics for the student-athlete’s time and energy. The Tech Athletics Department works to provide help with course content (through tutors and monitored study hours) as well as with time management and study skills and any other academic support services that will allow Tech student-athletes to maximize their academic potential.

Participation in the program is primarily based on grades, and coaches or the academic advisor may recommend additional participation at any time. All incoming freshmen meet at least one time per week with their coach to discuss academic progress and needs as well as time management and study skill techniques. Other aspects of the program include monitored study hours, tutoring, and study skills workshops.

Strength & Conditioning

Emphasizing Player DEVELOPMENT The Tennessee Tech strength and conditioning program is a blend of science, technology, nutrition and one-on-one attention to each athlete. Golden Eagle student-athletes make a year-round commitment to physically preparing to play their sport at the highest level. At TTU, a program is tailored to match each student-athlete’s individual needs with the sport-specific physical demands. This includes strength, speed, power, agility, flexibility, metabolic conditioning and motivation. This combination allows Tennessee Tech’s student-athletes to better reach their specific goals. Another major focus of the strength staff is the development of sport-specific speed, agility and conditioning.

Construction of new strength center to begin this winter on Tech campus New facility will house weight room, practice space and locker facilities

Victories on the field, court or track often find their beginnings in a place without cheering fans and blaring bands — the strength and conditioning center. And the scope and quality of a team’s strength and conditioning facility loom large during recruiting season, so Tennessee Tech’s Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has plans to build a new facility to capture the attention of recruits and enhance the training of Tech’s student-athletes. “Building this strength and conditioning center is the most important thing we can do to properly train Tennessee Tech’s student-athletes and compete for recruits,” said Mark Wilson, director of athletics. “All our OVC peers and many high schools have nice, big strength centers that allow student-athletes to train efficiently and to be bigger, faster and stronger. Today’s student-athletes expect a certain standard of facilities and equipment in a Division I athletics program.”

The need for a new facility is punctuated by the fact that Head Strength and Conditioning Coach Chip Pugh currently runs three shifts of workouts a day just to accommodate all the football student-athletes in the current 2,500 square foot facility. Shifts are also scheduled for student-athletes on Tech’s other 15 teams. Additionally, it is prohibitive for safety reasons to perform heavy lifts like the power clean in a facility located on a third floor instead of a ground floor facility. “This project is the number one priority in the athletics department,” said Wilson. “We’ve done all we can do in the existing space to make it work for our athletes.” At an estimated cost of $2 million, the proposed strength and conditioning center will feature approximately 21,000 square feet of space and state-of-the-art equipment. The building will house 8,000 square feet of weight room space, 9,000 square feet of indoor practice space, and 4,000 square feet of support/locker room space. The new building will be located west of the softball complex close to Pine Ave. This location allows for access to the newly built outdoor strength and conditioning area that includes an obstacle course, speed training sand pit, as well as a natural grass practice surface. “We need this facility to put the tools in place to help make our teams successful,” he said. “And once we get the student-athletes here, they’ll have a greater opportunity for competitive success by becoming better athletes.” Tech is scheduled to begin construction on the new Strength Center this winter.
