SEAWOLF MASCOT / MOUNTAIN PACIFIC SPORTS FEDERATION

2017 ALASKA ANCHORAGE SEAWOLVES GYMNASTICS

T

he Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) was established in 1992 to serve the competitive needs of member institutions from the Big West, Pacific-10, Mountain West, Western Athletic and West Coast Conferences and other selected colleges and universities in the western United States, providing championship competition for Division I intercollegiate Olympic sports in a conference setting. In women’s gymnastics, the league expanded back to six institutions in 2014 as former members Sacramento State and San Jose State rejoined Air Force, Alaska Anchorage, UC Davis and Seattle Pacific. The MPSF was originally formed to provide enhanced competition and championship opportunities for sports without conference affiliation, to contain the costs of competition, and to ensure the survival of sports impacted by Title IX and other fiscal pressures. It has also served as an incubator for emerging women’s sports and a safe harbor for sports impacted by conference realignments. In 2014-15, the Federation is celebrating its 23rd year of competition, and today the MPSF is more relevant than at any other time since its inception. This year the MPSF will again provide competition in 10 Olympic sports while serving 93 teams from 38 universities in nine western states. All MPSF teams compete at the NCAA Division I level in men’s and women’s water polo, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, men’s and women’s gymnastics, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, women’s lacrosse, and men’s volleyball. MPSF team champions are eligible to compete in the NCAA Championships with men’s and women’s water polo, men’s volleyball, and women’s lacrosse champions earning automatic qualification. In 2014-15, MPSF teams won four NCAA team championships, extending the streak to 11 straight years achieving such a feat and bringing the league’s total to 80 NCAA titles since its inaugural season in 1992-93.

The Seawolves celebrated the program’s first Mountain Pacific Sports FederaƟon Ɵtle in 2009.

n the Seawolf, the University of Alaska Anchorage has one of the more unique mascots in collegiate sports. Originally nicknamed the Sourdoughs, UAA adopted the Seawolf moniker in 1977. The name Seawolf represents a mythical sea creature. According to the legend of the Seawolf, anyone fortunate enough to view it was subject to good luck. The exact nature or shape of the Seawolf, however, was left to the imagination and thus the creature has been depicted in many forms throughout the years. The Seawolf of today was introduced in 1985. Created by the Clark Mishler & Associates Company of Anchorage in cooperation with a University committee, it represents an adaptation of a more traditional Alaska totemic-like characterization of the mythical Seawolf.

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

KEITH HACKETT

E

ntering his fourth year as Director of Athletics at the University of Alaska Anchorage in 2016-17, Keith Hackett has positioned the Seawolves’ 13-sport NCAA program for unprecedented success. All told during his tenure, the Seawolves’ D-II programs have qualified for NCAA postseason competition at a 90 percent rate, producing 69 All-Americans, five Academic All-Americans®, 14 Great Northwest Athletic Conference team titles, plus NCAA top-3 finishes in men's cross country (2015) and women's basketball (2016 runner-up). Even more impressively, UAA student-athletes have continued their tradition of academic excellence under Hackett’s leadership, combining for better than a 3.15 overall grade-point average in each of his years at the helm. In the past three years, the Seawolves have also finished among the top programs in NCAA Div. II in the NACDA Learfield Directors’ Cup. In 201516, UAA finished No. 8 in the final standings out of 307 D-II schools nationally. Under Hackett’s leadership, the department has developed a strategic plan that lists the highest priorities for continued growth and development. These strategic priorities guide and direct many of the Seawolf Athletic Department’s decisions. Meanwhile, student-athlete success and the studentathlete experience are his highest priorities. Creating college graduates, honorable citizens and young people who are prepared to lead and succeed in life after they leave UAA are at the core of the department’s mission. A university and administrative management executive with 39 years of higher education experience, Hackett values connecting with the Anchorage community and building positive relationships with campus faculty, students, staff and U-Med District partners. In addition to reorganizing the internal management structure of the department, he has also entered into agreements with several national leaders in collegiate brand advancement. Hackett has developed partnerships with industry leader Spectra to manage the Alaska Airlines Center and UAA’s ticketing operations; Learfield Sports – the industry leader in media rights and sponsorships; and Basketball Travelers, which assists UAA in developing the GCI Great Alaska Shootout. Hackett has worked closely with corporate partners GCI and Alaska Airlines – and national TV partner CBS Sports Network – to bolster the vitality of UAA’s most visible event, the GCI Great Alaska Shootout. Other priorities that Hackett has targeted include external relations and development, revenue generation, and a significant focus on the ‘Seawolf Fan Experience.’ Since his arrival, over $4 million has been raised for facility projects and direct support to Seawolf sports teams. Hackett came to the Seawolves after working from 2004-13 as the senior associate AD for internal affairs at the University of Nevada, where he oversaw the football, track & field/cross country and baseball programs. Prior to his time in Reno, Hackett served as Executive VP for Special Projects and Director of the St. Gregory’s University College for Working Adults in Tulsa, Okla. He also served as Executive VP and Provost at St. Gregory’s from 1997-2004, and as VP for Admissions and Enrollment Management/Dean of Admissions for Law, Graduate and Undergraduate Admissions at Oklahoma City University from 1992-97. He worked at OCU as Dean of Students from 1986-89. From 1989-92, Hackett was the Associate AD at Northern Illinois University, where he oversaw eight Division I sports, including football and men’s and women’s basketball. The native of Nanuet, N.Y., began his college coaching and teaching career at Baker University in Baldwin, Kan., where he was head baseball coach from 1978-83 and assistant football coach from 1977-83. From there, he went on to coach offensive line for the football program at Div. I Memphis from 1983-85. Hackett earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Tarkio (Mo.) College in 1976 and an M.S. in education from the University of Kansas in 1979. He and his wife Patricia have been married for 40 years and have two adult children, Katie and James, and six grandsons.

also has a bustling downtown – complete with high-rises, nightlife and one of the nation’s fastest-growing culinary scenes. Anchorage is at the center of road, rail and air travel inside the state, making it a natural fit for visitors hoping to experience Alaska. Activities from the city range from bear viewing to glacier trekking, kayaking to gold panning. Pair adventure opportunities with Anchorage’s outstanding hotels, restaurants,

local breweries, and homegrown arts, and it’s a perfect place to explore no matter the season. Thanksgiving weekend is a special time for Anchorage.

The State of Alaska A

laska is the largest state in the union — one-fifth the size of the contiguous 48 states and more than twice the size of the second largest state, Texas. Although Minnesota is called the Land of 10,000 Lakes, Alaska holds the real title in that department with more than three million lakes. Alaska also boasts 39 different mountain ranges, three of which can be seen from Anchorage, and an estimated 100,000 glaciers. The 49th State is home to Denali, the highest peak in North America (20,320 feet). Previously known as Mt. McKinley, the colossal mountain is located in the heart of Denali National Park and Preserve, located 200 miles north of Anchorage, and can be seen from the city on clear days.
