2010 OKLAHOMA WOMEN’S GYMNASTICS GUIDE




,16,'(*/,036($728$7+/(7,&6 The Univers University of Oklahoma has a long and storied history. The rich tra tradition has given birth to some of the most recognized pageantry in all of college athletics. Here is a look at the origin of some of the elements that create the wonderful atmosphere so unique to OU:

SOONERS College sports fans are hard-pressed to find a nickname that is as unique and as tied-in to a stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history as a Sooner. The University of Oklahoma is the only school known as Sooners and those who claim that they are Sooners say it with pride. The Oklahoma Territory opened with the Land Run of 1889. Settlers from across the globe, seeking free land, made their way to the prairies of the plains to stake their claim. One of the few rules to claiming a lot of land was that all participants were to start at the same time, on the boom of a cannon. All settlers who started then were labeled as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boomersâ&#x20AC;? and the ones who went too soon were called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sooners.â&#x20AC;? OU athletic teams were called either Rough Riders or Boomers for 10 years before the current Sooner nickname emerged in 1908. The university actually derived its name from a pep club called â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sooner Rooters.â&#x20AC;? The succeKs of University of Oklahoma athletic teams over the years has made the nickname synonymous with winning.

BOOMER SOONER

OU CHANT

One of the most recognizable college fight songs in the country, Boomer Sooner immediately evokes enthusiasm from OU fans and sends chills down the spines of those who dare to oppose them.

The OU Chant is a loyalty song that is sung before every home football game, before and after every menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball games and at the end of many athletic and university functions.

In 1905, Arthur M. Alden, a student in history and physiology whose father was a Norman jeweler, wrote the lyrics to the fight song, borrowing the tune from Yale Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Boola Boola but improvising the words. A year later, an addition was made to it from North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a Tarheel Born and the two combined to form the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fight song today. Though the tune was first made known by Yale, the everlasting success of Sooner squads has taken the melody of Boomer Sooner to national popularity.

Every fan who wears the official colors, each current student and student-athlete and all OU alumni are encouraged to stand and raise one finger in the air during the playing of the Chant -- a symbolic gesture that shows those who do not know what it means to be a Sooner, the greatness of the university and the unity between all Sooners.

Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner Boomer Sooner, OK U! Oklahoma, Oklahoma Oklahoma, Oklahoma Oklahoma, Oklahoma Oklahoma, OK U! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a Sooner born and Sooner bred and when I die, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be Sooner dead Rah Oklahoma, Rah Oklahoma Rah Oklahoma, OK U!

The Chant was written in 1936 by Jessie Lone Clarkson Gilkey, who directed the OU girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glee club from 1936 to 1938 and was voted Outstanding Faculty Woman in 1937. O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A Our chant rolls on and on! Thousands strong Join heart and song In alma materâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s praise Of campus beautiful by day and night Of colors proudly gleaming Red and White â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Neath a western sky OUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chant will never die. Live on University!

CRIMSON AND CREAM

PRIDE OF OKLAHOMA

MASCOTS

In the fall of 1895, Miss May Overstreet, the only woman on the faculty, was asked to chair a committee to select the colors of the university. The committee decided the colors should be crimson and cream and an elaborate display of the colors was draped above a platform before the student body.

The Pride of Oklahoma Marching Band has been supporting Sooner Spirit for nearly a century. Unlike many other college bands, which began as military drill units, the Pride of Oklahoma had its beginnings as a pep band.

The Sooner Schooner is a Conestoga, or covered wagon, reminiscent of the mode of travel used by pioneers who settled Oklahoma. The Schooner is powered by matching white ponies named Boomer and Sooner, and it ventures onto Owen Field in a triumphant victory ride after OU scores. Although the Schooner was introduced in 1964, it did not become the official mascot until 1980. The Schooner is well-recognized by college athletics fans across the country and makes regular appearances at university functions.

The student body approved with great enthusiasm and immediately pennants, banners, badges and decorations of every description appeared on the streets, in the windows, at chapel, in classrooms, and all public places; however, local merchants could not supply the demand. Even though the school colors have evolved to red and white over the years, you can ask any self-respecting Sooner what the colors are and they will proudly announce â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crimson and Cream.â&#x20AC;? On gamedays, a sea of crimson rolls through OUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home venues and all Sooners are urged to wear the official colors to show the rest of the country what school spirit and Sooner Pride is all about.

In the early years of the 1900s, both townspeople of Norman and students of OU participated in a band that played for football games. Professor John Merrill started the first band in 1901, which was composed mostly of townspeople and disbanded after each football season. Lloyd Curtis, a cornetist, founded the first continuous student band in 1904. Today, the 300-member Pride of Oklahoma has members representing virtually every college and major on campus. The Pride of Oklahoma stands for excellence in musicianship, academics, school spirit, and commitment to our role in the surrounding community. Boomer Sooner rings out at the end of each rehearsal, and that song is the defining element of the University of Oklahoma. Not much can compare to the first â&#x20AC;&#x153;go-goâ&#x20AC;? at a football game when the Pride of Oklahoma marches the interlocking OU down the field playing Boomer Sooner.

During OU football and baseball games from 19151928, Mex the Dog wore a red sweater with a letter â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oâ&#x20AC;? on the side. Mex died of old age on April 30, 1928, and he was so popular among students and faculty that the university closed for his funeral and procession on May 2, 1928. In the fall of 2005, the OU Athletics Department introduced costumed mascots. The new characters will act as an extension of the Sooner Schooner and its horses to be enjoyed by fans -- especially children -- at all OU athletics contests. The costumes feature traditional collegiate gear as part of their regular uniform, but will don team uniforms for football and menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball. They were voted â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most Collegiateâ&#x20AC;? by the Universal Cheerleading Association (UCA). 2010 OKLAHOMA WOMENâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S GYMNASTICS GUIDE

Norman was recently named by Money Magazine as No. 6 of America’s Best Places to Live among “small” cities or locations with a population between 50,000 and 300,000. Norman is an ever-changing city of nearly 100,000 residents. Located in the heart of the state, it has grown to become the third largest city in Oklahoma. Despite its continuous growth, it has maintained the spirit and serenity of a small close-knit community. Since the Oklahoma land rush of 1889, Norman has grown into a popular and smart city. The spirit of Norman and its citizens is unwavering and uncompromising. While other towns were clamoring to become the state capital, Norman residents desired to have the first state university. When the first OU president got off the train and saw a prairie, he saw opportunity. As home to the state’s premier educational institution, Norman boasts an excellent quality of life and is a city that thrives on and celebrates the diversity of its community. Legendary University of Oklahoma football coach Barry Switzer called Norman “a university town with a championship spirit.” Norman continually exhibits its love for sports by hosting numerous local and national athletic events. In the last five years alone, Norman has served as host of the NCAA Men’s Gymnastics Championship, an NCAA men’s golf regional, NCAA softball regionals, NCAA men’s and women’s gymnastics regionals, NCAA women’s tennis regionals, NCAA track and field regional and the NCAA women’s basketball regionals.

In addition, the Big 12 Conference Men’s and Women’s Tennis, Track and Field, Wrestling, Women’s Golf, and Women’s Gymnastics Championships were held in Norman. Cultural activities are unlimited in Norman, making it the ideal backdrop for the University of Oklahoma. As home to people of all ethnic and educational backgrounds, the city has something to offer everyone. Norman is home to a variety of enriching events and attractions, including the Sooner Theater, which hosts a series of entertaining theatrical performances produced by locally-based talent and touring companies. The city also showcases local and regional artists in its annual May Fair. In addition, through the university’s School of Drama, School of Dance and the School of Music, stage productions are offered year round. The Medieval Fair has become a springtime tradition in Norman as people from around the country converge on the city for one weekend each April to partake in a fascinating look back in time. Each year, an area park is transformed into a festival of sights, sounds and tastes straight from the Middle Ages. Knights joust, jesters entertain and story tellers spin tales of a magical time in history. The $44 million Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, a state-of-the-art facility designed to display a collection of historical and natural science items that trace the southwest’s development since prehistoric times, opened in May 2000. History buffs will also enjoy the Cleveland Country Historical House which holds exhibits relating to the development of this area of the state. For art enthusiasts, the Fred Jones Jr. Memorial Art Center houses permanent collections, nationally and world-renowned traveling exhibits as well as a yearly student art show. The museum has recently added the Weitzenhoffer Collection of French Impressionist paintings -the single most important gift of art ever given to a U.S. public university.

Thousands crossed the borders of â&#x20AC;&#x153;unassigned landsâ&#x20AC;? at the sound of gunfire at high noon. Never before or since has such a â&#x20AC;&#x153;runâ&#x20AC;? occurred anywhere on the earth.

Hockey mania runs rampant with the recent success of the Central Hockey Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oklahoma City Blazers. The Blazers won the CHL crown in 1996 and are yearly one of the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best teams. In addition, the city has hosted numerous PGA and Senior PGA Tour events.

Tulsa is a cosmopolitan town that appeals to both young families and retirees. National touring exhibitions can be seen at the Philbrook Museum of Art, which was recently featured on the television program Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Castles.

Academics Awards Program - The OU Athletic Student Life program places special emphasis upon recognition of outstanding academic performances by student-athletes. Scholar-athletes with a 3.0 GPA and above are recognized each semester at halftime of a football or menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball game. An awards banquet is held in the spring to recognize scholar-athletes and special award winners. Graduating student-athletes receive recognition prior to OUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s graduation ceremonies in May during a reception. Each is given an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oâ&#x20AC;? ring, representing their athletic participation and graduation from The University of Oklahoma. All scholarship student-athletes who exhaust their eligibility within eight semesters may receive an additional year of financial aid within a six-year period. Student-Athlete Advisory Committee - Student-athlete leaders from each sport comprise the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, which aims to improve communication with the athletic and University administration regarding student-athletesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; needs and concerns. The Student-Athlete Advisory Board developed a community outreach partnership with the Oklahoma Youth Center, a local residential facility for physically, mentally and sexually abused children. The board also designs programs that encourage excellence in academics and social responsibility and serve to represent student-athletes on campus-wide committees. Advisement - Academic Advising Services, considered a campus advising unit, are conveniently located within the center. The athletic department employs four professional, full-time counselors who are here to help student-athletes through the educational process. Athletic academic counselors are often available on a walk-in basis as well as through scheduled appointments. Athletic academic counselors assist student-athletes with planning their class schedules and deciding on a degree program that will suit the needs of the student-athletes. Psychological Counseling and Sport Psychology - The Prentice Gautt Academic Center is staffed with a licensed Counseling Psychologist to provide a wide array of counseling and performance enhancing services. Student-athletes may visit the staff psychologist to confidentially discuss anything impacting their academic, athletic or personal lives. Assessment - The academic assessment process begins with an entrylevel assessment of all incoming student-athletes. This assessment is designed to help student-athletes know their strengths and weaknesses in content areas such as reading, writing, and mathematics. With this information, we can determine if student-athletes have the skills necessary to succeed in standard entry-level courses. Some results from this initial assessment may require additional testing, enrollment in developmental courses and academic services, or programs recommended based on individual needs. The ultimate purpose of our assessment is to ensure that student-athletes have the appropriate academic support services to achieve academic success.

Supervised Study - Supervised study is a monitored study program i designed to provide student-athletes with organized study and tutoring time in a flexible environment conducive to successful learning. Supervised study is required for all first-semester freshmen, transfer student-athletes, student-athletes with a cumulative GPA below 2.50, and any student-athlete who the coaching staff and the Student Life academic staff believe would benefit from the experience. Supervised study is flexible for all student-athletes. All freshman and transfer student-athletes are required to put in 10 hours a week in their first semester at the University. Any study area or learning center is available for use during these times. Academic Assistance and Tutoring - Tutors are available to assist student-athletes in all subject areas. Individual or small group sessions can be arranged with content experts either allocated by Academic Services or personally requested by the student-athlete. Academic Services also provides revision groups, study sessions and weekly instruction on an individual or group basis in order to ensure studentathlete success. The Prentice Gautt Academic Mentoring Program - Mentors are assigned by academic counselors to designated student-athletes to assist them with study skills, problem solving techniques, and time management. The primary goal of the mentoring program is to create an environment conducive to student-athlete success in the university academic setting. Athletic Student Life promotes this environment of academic success through several methods. Arriving at a college campus can be very intimidating for both freshmen and transfer students. Our program provides a mentor to help familiarize the student-athlete with the academic and social culture at OU, thus helping to ease the transition to the University setting.



STEP SIX: Life Skills, Academic Recognition, Graduation/Post Eligibility, Community Service and Student-Athlete Leadership Life Skills Program - OU is a member of the NCAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Life Skills Program and is dedicated to contributing to the growth and development of student-athletes through academic excellence, athletic excellence, personal development, community service and career development. The OU Athletic Department offers and maintains a strong commitment through comprehensive programs to fully develop the student-athletesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; academic and personal potential, while enjoying the highest levels of athletic competition.

The Sooners led the nation with 54 points per game and became the first program to score 60 or more points in five straight games en route to totaling 700-plus on the year, an NCAA record in the modern era. Oklahoma made its 10th straight bowl appearance, its sixth in the BCS and fourth in the championship game. Quarterback Sam Bradford became OUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fifth Heisman Trophy winner and joined offensive guard Duke Robinson as consensus All-Americans. Oklahoma won 11 or more games for the eighth time in Bob Stoopsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 10 seasons.

OU received the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 7 seed in the NCAA Tournament, a program first, and finished the campaign with a 43-20 mark, the second most wins since the Sooners won the 1994 National Championship. While OUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 32nd appearance in the NCAA Tournament fell short, the Sooners had plenty to celebrate throughout the season as they finished second in the Big 12 standings (a half game behind Texas).

The womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cross country program was represented at the NCAA Championships for the fifth time in the last six years as sophomore Kelly Waters advanced to the title meet in Terre Haute, Ind. Waters finished 93rd at the meet, 16th among sophomores and ninth among Big 12 runners. Waters advanced to the meet after garnering All-Region honors with a 10th-place finish at the NCAA Midwest Regional. Waters also grabbed all-conference honors by finishing fifth at the Big 12 Championships. Classmate Jessica Engel finished 18th at the conference meet.

That title was OUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst tournament victory since the 2006 Big 12 Championship. Oklahoma defeated 13 other squads and inclement weather in its eight-shot triumph for the tournament crown. It was the fourth tournament title for the Sooners in Jim Raganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nal season at the helm. Ragan resigned in June and was replaced by Ryan Hybl, most recently an assistant coach for the Georgia Bulldogs.

OUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 13-3 record in Big 12 Conference play tied as its best in the 13-year history of the league, and a 25-1 start to the season resulted in a threeweek No. 2 national ranking in February â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest perch in 19 years. All Griffin did to help OUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cause was author one of the most impressive single seasons in recent college hoops memory and win every national player of the year honor.

Led by senior Courtney Paris, the first ever four-time All-American designated by the Associated Press and U.S. Basketball Writers Association, the Sooners matched a program record with 32 wins, including a record 20-game winning streak, and earned their sixth Big 12 regular-season title - the third for OU in four seasons.

With one of the greatest winning traditions in intercollegiate athletics, the University of Oklahoma, its players, coaches and fans understand the meaning of “Great Expectations.” OU hopes for and expects great things from its athletics teams -- and the athletes and coaches expect the same from themselves. Time and time again, the Sooners have delivered on this expectation: 26 national championships, more than 200 conference titles and over 1,000 All-Americans.

For Phase IV, OU’s football facilities -- especially those which the student-athletes use daily -- were further upgraded in 2009. Improvements included a 9,000 square-foot football locker room including grooming areas, cold plunge hydrotherapy pools and players’ lounge, a 10,000 square-foot athletic training space to include additional hydrotherapy for all teams, a 6,500 square-foot equipment room, a 4,000 square-foot team meeting room equipped with the latest technology, sound, and video equipment, and seating for more than 200 added to the more than 8,000 square feet of existing team meeting rooms.

The University of Oklahoma’s goal is to provide first-class facilities and resources for all the programs and endeavors sponsored by the institution. OU Athletics captures so much attention and interest that it requires the help and support of all Sooners to continue the tradition that all have enjoyed. With that in mind, OU launched “Great Expectations...The Campaign for Sooner Sports” in 1999.

Phase IV also included expansion of HD and other technology-driven enhancements to the SoonerVision studio and production facilities. The final phase of the stadium project totaled $15 million, bringing the total for all improvements to the stadium and its support areas to more than $125 million since 1998.

“Great Expectations - The Campaign for Sooner Sports,” a recently completed fundraising effort, was about the continuation of a proud championship tradition. It was a five-year campaign launched with an eventual goal of $100 million, making possible an extraordinary era in new athletics facilities that has led to unprecedented athletic and academic success for OU student-athletes.

Among the accomplishments made possible by Great Expectations’ donors: an expanded, renovated and more beautiful football stadium; two completely new facilities for men’s and women’s basketball at Lloyd Noble Center; new or renovated facilities for baseball, gymnastics, softball, volleyball, wrestling, softball, tennis, soccer and track and field; new strength and conditioning and sports medicine centers and an indoor training center.

MCCLENDON CENTER FOR INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS While the football gameday facilities in the Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium may be more familiar to OU supporters, the north side McClendon Center for Intercollegiate Athletics is one of the most vital areas for OU’s entire athletics program as it is the center of student learning and athletics administration activities.

GAYLORD FAMILY - OKLAHOMA MEMORIAL STADIUM The $75 million expansion and renovation of OU’s football stadium, completed in 2004, transformed a towering concrete structure into a beautiful facility featuring the brick and cast stone that characterize OU’s historic buildings. The expansion added 8,000 seats, including 56 suites, on the east side. At the same time, the press box was remodeled and outfitted with several state-of-the-art features.

675(1*7+$1'&21',7,21,1* Oklahoma’s training program pro is a pioneer in the development of strength and conditioning, and is a vital part of the Sooners’ tradition of success. OU strength and conditioning coaches utilize their expertise along with a wide array of equipment and tests to produce national championship caliber athletes. Evaluation, goal-oriented programs, supervision and state-of-the-art facilities help Oklahoma athletes reach their peak potential. The Robin Siegfried & Family Strength and Conditioning Complex, located in the Barry Switzer Center, has 13,000 square feet to facilitate the intensive training of OU athletes. An additional facility, the Roy Williams Strength Training Facility, is available for workouts inside the Everest Training Center. The former Sooner football All-American and current Cincinnati Bengal made the center possible through a gift to the University. Jerry Schmidt, director of sports enhancement, says the complex is a state-of-the-art facility where athletes work closely with six full-time staff members. “Oklahoma recognizes the importance of conditioning,” says Schmidt. “This facility is reflective of that commitment.” The objective of the strength and conditioning program is to ensure each student-athlete in every sport is provided with a sound in-season and off-season program. This program of activity includes strength, conditioning, flexibility and nutrition. A strength and conditioning coordinator for each sport is provided to assist athletes in reaching the highest possible training levels. The OU strength and conditioning staff takes great pride in providing a very intensive program that helps maintain greater overall body strength and conditioning levels during the season. By maintaining strength in the muscles and connective tissues throughout the season, the potential for injuries decreases. The off-season program is also extremely intensive. Speed, strength, power, agility, fundamentals and nutrition are addressed. The OU staff is committed to full compliance with NCAA rules concerning time allocation for student-athletes and voluntary workouts during offseason periods. The staff’s interaction with the nutritional consultants on campus is essential. The staff maintains an open channel of communication with the dining staff at the Wagner Dining Center. This interaction enables the strength and conditioning staff to ensure that OU athletes receive a winning edge with a sound nutrition program. “Our goal is to get the student-athletes in their best condition,” says Schmidt. “That condition will give Oklahoma an edge at the end of their competition. Top of the line conditioning is what it takes to be a Sooner athlete. Running, lifting and good nutrition must be kept in a balance. All these components must be in place for an athlete to compete at the highest level.”

The Oklahoma Athletics Department feels a strong responsibility to help its athletes reach and maintain their optimum health and achieve conditioning goals. For this reason, OU has developed excellent training and conditioning programs to lessen the possibility of injuries. However, should injuries occur, the department is committed to a comprehensive rehabilitation program. Complete athletically-related medical services are provided to Oklahoma student-athletes by team physicians and OU’s certified athletic trainers. The University of Oklahoma obtains the services of the best medical consultants available. The base of operation for the Sooners’ medical care is the state-of-the-art Henry J. Freede, M.D. Sports Medicine Center in the Barry Switzer Center. Head athletic trainer Scott Anderson says the addition to the Barry Switzer Center has allowed the university to upgrade to a new edition of rehabilitation equipment that can best benefit the student-athletes. From simple therobands to taping tables, the facility offers everything a school can have or hope to have. The Sooner training room is equipped to perform isokinetic joint evaluation for preventive medicine and for post-injury rehabilitation. The therapy room is supplied with the latest modalities on the market. “The addition of space is the greatest benefit,” says Anderson. “This space allows for dedicated rehabilitation and consultation to the athletes. An option with the facility is the water rehabilitation area. The athlete stands in a pool of water that is adjusted to his or her own physical needs. Cameras are then placed where physicians can monitor the progress made by the athlete on his or her road to recovery.” A total team effort is the key to OU’s efficiency in preventing, treating and rehabilitating injuries sustained by student-athletes. These measures keep Sooner athletes at their highest level of performance as they compete for championships. “Sports medicine is a team effort,” says Anderson. “The stated goal of athletic training at Oklahoma is, first of all, care for the student-athletes, thereby granting our sports a competitive advantage and ultimately greater esteem for the entire program. “To that end we are blessed with a full complement of self-sacrificing medical professionals working on a regular basis with our athletic training staff.”

The back-to-back Big 12 Champion OU women’s gymnastics squad opens the 2010 season ranked ninth in the GymInfo preseason coaches poll, the highest ranking of any conference squad.

on beam at the 2009 NCAA Championships. She became the first freshman in Big 12 history to win multiple event titles at the conference championship (bars and beam).

The Sooners return 11 members from last season’s group that clinched OU’s second straight conference title and advanced to the NCAA Championships for the sixth consecutive year.

Other returnees include All-Big 12 selections in Jackie Flanery (floor - 2008), Melanie Root (vault - 2009), Kristin Smith (floor - 2009) and Hollie Vise (bars - 2008, beam 2008, 2009). The quartet has combined for nine Big 12 Event Specialist of the Week honors in the past two seasons.

Oklahoma is looking to build on the strong foundation that has been set in recent years. The Sooners are one of just six squads to advance to the NCAA Championships every year since 2004, joining Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU and Utah on that elite list.

Also returning in 2010 are event title winners Mary Mantle (Big 12 Event Specialist of the Week on Feb. 12, 2008, after her vault win at Denver) and Sara Stone (three vault titles in 2009).

The Sooners return just 14 of 24 routines from the 2009 NCAA Championships - the fewest of any team ranked in the 2010 GymInfo preseason coaches poll. Oklahoma does return seven gymnasts who saw action at last year’s NCAA Championships and is bolstered by the return of four-time U.S. National Team member Natasha Kelley, who returns to the lineup after missing the 2009 season with an achilles tear.

This season also marks the final send-off for Julie Kramer, while other returnees include juniors Candace Cindell and Natalie Ratcliff. Ratcliff was a mainstay in the vault and beam lineup a year ago.

Headlining OU’s returnees is sophomore All-American Megan Ferguson. The Olathe, Kan., native capped off her stellar freshman campaign by garnering All-America status

VAULT

$7$*/$1&( $7 $ */$1&( Oklahoma must replace three strong vaulters from the 2009 season in Jessica Kinder, Ashley Jackson and Haley Horton (DeProspero). All three saw action in the vault lineup last season and provided depth and experience for the Sooner squad. The Sooners return 50 percent of the 2009 lineup and will depend on newcomers to fill the void. Jackie Flanery, Mary Mantle, Melanie Root (NCAA Northeast Regional vault champion) and Sara Stone will provide a veteran base to an overall youthful lineup. All four of those athletes provide 10.0 vault values and have traditionally posted high scores on the apparatus for Oklahoma.

Newcomers will include World Championship Team member and redshirt freshman Natasha Kelley. Kelley is dynamic and consistent and has the potential to anchor this lineup. Other new faces will include a trio of freshmen including 2008 Junior Olympic National Team member Brie Olson, and National qualifiers Kayla Nowak and Bethany Neubauer. All three look to debut for the Sooners on this event during the 2010 season. There could be a few surprises in the vault lineup this season as senior Kristin Smith is back to her full vaulting form, performing a Yurchenko full-on, pike off after a summer of rewarding training. Two other Sooner athletes, Natalie Ratcliff and Hollie Vise, are seeing good results on this event in practice as well and could break into the lineup at any time.

The uneven bars has seen the greatest upswing for the Sooners during their summer training. Though OU lost seniors Ashley Jackson, Jessica Kinder and Haley DeProspero from last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lineup, it returns five athletes with competitive experience while adding four new bar swingers to the mix. 2008 Big 12 Champion Hollie Vise (also the 2003 World Champion on bars) is back and better than ever. The senior showcases handstand lines and impeccable form which make her an incredible asset for the Sooners. Adding depth to the squad will be a list of Oklahoma veterans including Megan Ferguson, the reigning Big 12 Champion on the apparatus. Ferguson has one year of experience

under her belt and is comfortable in the spotlight. Keep your eyes open for much improved routines from Jackie Flanery, Mary Mantle and Melanie Root. These veterans will provide a solid base for a group of newcomers who will impress on this event. Natasha Kelley performs her routine with ease, boasting three release elements and an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eâ&#x20AC;? dismount. Freshman Brie Olson competes the unique Deltchev release and tops off her routine with arguably the most difficult dismount in the code of points, a dynamic full twisting double layout. Freshman Kayla Nowak is no exception to this young group of dynamos. Nowak is smooth sailing on this event with a variety of release moves on her resume. Watch for veteran Kristin Smith to step up on bars this season. Smith has not competed for the Sooners on this event since she arrived in the fall of 2006. The Oklahoma City native has shown great potential in the preseason and looks to snag a spot in 2010.

The Sooners experienced some highs and lows at the 2009 NCAA Championships with their best performance of the day turned in on balance beam. Their final showing of the year reinforced what had been experienced all season longâ&#x20AC;Śa steady and confident beam team. The Sooners must replace 2009 Big 12 Co-Champion Haley Horton (DeProspero), known by her teammates and coaches as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the rockâ&#x20AC;?, due to her dependable performances from the anchor position. OU will also need to replace Jessica Kinder and Ashley Jackson, who both saw action last season on the apparatus. Oklahoma is led by the extraordinary threesome of Megan Ferguson (2009 NCAA AllAmerican on beam and Big 12 Co-Champion on the apparatus), Kristin Smith and Hollie Vise. Ferguson is mesmerizing on this event as she tumbles on the beam as if it were four feet wide. Vise provides elegance and grace that is rarely matched, while Smith is an eyecatcher with her unusually calm presence and aggressive skills.

´

Expected to make key contributions to this lineup are Natalie Ratcliff, Natasha Kelley, Sara Stone and Melanie Root. These four complete a group of eight who will consistently compete for a place in the lineup. Ratcliff was thrown into the lineup last season when a teammate turned up ill and she solidified her spot with a 9.875 in her first collegiate beam competition. Ratcliff continued to succeed during the season and has carved a spot for herself in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lineup. Kelley is known for her calm nature and steadiness, but her big skills are sure to catch your eye. Stone and Root have made enormous improvements over the summer months and are likely to be seen among the top six this season. Candace Cindell, Brie Olson, Kayla Nowak, Nitya Ramaswami and Bethany Neubauer are prepared to step in and add depth to the squad in 2010.

Stone is deceivingly graceful and her tumbling is strong and clean. Ferguson is a bundle of energy and a crowd pleaser.

The Sooners must replace 50 percent of their floor lineup from the 2009 NCAA Championships. OU will turn to influential seniors Jackie Flanery and Kristin Smith to anchor the floor squad and attempt to replace the high scores of departed seniors Jessica Kinder, Ashley Jackson and Haley DeProspero, as well as the leadership they provided.

Freshmen Brie Olson, Kayla Nowak and Bethany Neubauer will provide the Sooners with quality depth. These athletes could all be contributors in the lineup and be battling for a permanent position. Olson is potent on this event with dark music to match. Nowak will simply make you smile as she performs â&#x20AC;&#x153;no holds barredâ&#x20AC;? to an upbeat toe tapping compilation. Neubauerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attribute on this event is her sky-high tumbling and leap combinations.

Flanery and Smith have three years of experience under their belt and K.J. Kindler believes there is no one better to lead the squad on this event. Flaneryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s routine is highlighted by quick and powerful tumbling and energetic showmanship. Smith hits the other end of the spectrum with a smooth and original performance that leaves the crowd wanting more. Both of these athletes posted 9.9s last season.

Hollie Vise will be OUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best-kept secret on this event. After three years at OU, she began training floor in the summer of 2009. She has shown great promise and is likely to see the competition floor this season.



Sara Stone and Megan Ferguson will step into the void left by the 2009 senior class. The duo embraces their own personal styles and are ready for the challenge. Stone and Ferguson both saw action on this event last season and will undoubtedly be counted on by the Sooners.

The Sooners have reeled off an impressive 18-3 mark against conference opponents since the start of the 2007 schedule. Winner of the last two Big 12 titles, the Sooners are the only conference squad to advance to the NCAA Championships each of the last two seasons.

Oklahoma gymnasts have flourished under the 2005 National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches/Women (NACGCW) Coach of the Year as Oklahoma produced a conference-leading nine spots on the 2008 regular season All-Big 12 team.

The Sooners won their second-straight Big 12 title in 2009, while posting individual event titles on bars and beam at the conference championship.

OU recorded only two scores lower than 9.8 in the final three events of the `08 conference championship as the Sooners clinched at least a share of all four individual event titles marking just the third time in Big 12 history that a school clinched at least a share of all four apparatus wins.

Under Kindlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guidance, freshman Megan Ferguson became OUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest All-American with her stellar performance on beam. The primary coach on the apparatus, the Sooners won eight beam titles in 2009 under Kindler.

Hollie Vise and Haley Horton (DeProspero) won titles on bars and beam, respectively, as the pair both recorded scores of 9.9 in their event wins. Kiara Redmond won the other two titles, taking home the vault win with her 9.95 and the floor exercise title after a score of 9.9.

In 2008, Kindler guided OU to a share of its highest ever finish, posting the most wins in program history and recording the best winning percentage of any Sooner squad along the way.

Following OUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s come-from-behind heroics in the conference championship, Kindler was named Big 12 Coach of the Year for a fourth time, while Redmond garnered Big 12 Gymnast of the Year honors.

Named head coach of the Sooners in the summer of 2006, Kindler has quickly positioned the OU squad among the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elite as the Sooners have finished in the top 10 at the previous three NCAA Championships.

The Sooners have produced at least one All-American in each season under Kindlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tutelage as Redmond capped off her illustrious career with four additional All-America honors in 2008, moving her career total to nine - the highest tally of any gymnast in program history.

2008 proved to be a storybook year for the Sooners under Kindler, as OU won its first 21 meetings of the season (the only squad in the country to win all of its regular season contests) en route to the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first Big 12 title since 2004.

Kindler also choreographs the beam and floor exercise routines. The Sooners ended the 2008 season with an regional qualifying score (RQS) of 49.195 on beam, tops in the Big 12 and sixth best in the NCAA. OU had three of the top four individual RQS in the conference on the apparatus, including Hortonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (DeProspero) Big 12-leading RQS of 9.9, which ranked fifth in the country. Oklahoma gymnasts took home 12 individual event titles on beam in 2008, led by Hortonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (DeProspero) nine event wins.

Kindler has proven consistent success as every squad of during her head coaching tenure has advanced to NCAA regional competition.

In 2009, OU closed the year with top-10 team rankings on both vault and bars, and won a combined 14 team titles on the two events. Under Ball, the Sooners posted a season-high 49.400 on vault on March 6, despite the absence of one of their regulars in the lineup. Every member of the 2009 Oklahoma vault lineup posted a season high of at least 9.85, including three with scores higher than 9.9. Ballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expertise on the two events was evident in 2008 as Oklahoma closed the season ranked first in the Big 12 and 10th in the country on both apparatuses. OU won 11 bars titles and notched 10 wins on vault during the regular season, capped off by 23 individual event titles on the two apparatuses alone. In his first season at OU, Ball also guided Brittney Koncak-Schumann to All-America status on vault. Prior to joining the Oklahoma program, Ball spent 11 years as administrative assistant coach at Iowa State where he was named the 2005 NACGCW National Co-Assistant Coach of the Year. He was also honored as an NCAA Regional Assistant Coach of the Year in 2004 and 2002.

While at Iowa State, Ball was a co-owner and head coach at the Cardinal Gymnastics Academy where he qualified five gymnasts to the national TOPS team and camp held annually at USA gymnastics coach Bela Karolyiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ranch. Ball and K.J. Kindler have had five of their club gymnasts go on to compete at the NCAA level. In addition, Ball coached individuals to Level 10 USA Nationals for eight consecutive years, and his Level 8, 9 and 10 teams all captured Iowa state titles. In 1999 and 2001, Ball was named Iowa USA Gymnastics Coach of the Year. Prior to his time in Iowa, Ball served as head coach at Cahoyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gymnastics School in Omaha, Neb., for three years where he led several individuals to berths at USA Nationals. As an athlete, Ball competed as a vault and floor exercise specialist at the University of Nebraska from 1990-1993. He was an NCAA vault finalist in 1992 and helped the Cornhuskers to a runner-up finish at the NCAA Championships in 1992 and 1993. Ball earned All-Big Eight honors on vault in 1992 and 1993. Ball transferred to Nebraska in 1990 after spending two seasons as a member of the gymnastics team at Michigan. Ball earned a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in liberal studies from Iowa State in 1999.

At Iowa State, Ball served as the primary coach on vault and uneven bars. During his tenure in Ames, the Cyclones rewrote the school record books on both events and six of his gymnasts won Big 12 titles on bars. Ball also coached a two-time regional bars co-champion and two two-time All-Americans on vault.

DAVID L. BOREN 8QLYHUVLW\3UHVLGHQW 16TH YEAR AT OU

David L. Boren, who has served Oklahoma as governor and U.S. senator, became the 13th president of the University of Oklahoma in November 1994. He is the first person in state history to have served in all three positions. Boren is widely respected for his academic credentials, his longtime support of education, and for his distinguished political career as a reformer of the American political system. A graduate of Yale University in 1963, Boren majored in American history, graduated in the top one percent of his class and was elected Phi Beta Kappa. He was selected as a Rhodes Scholar and earned a master’s degree in politics, philosophy and economics from Oxford University, England, in 1965. In 1968, he received a law degree from the University of Oklahoma College of Law, where he was on the Law Review, elected to the Order of the Coif, and won the Bledsoe Prize as the outstanding graduate by a vote of the faculty. As Oklahoma’s governor from 1974 through 1978, Boren promoted key educational initiatives that have had an enduring impact on Oklahoma. Established during his tenure were: the Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute, the Scholar-Leadership Enrichment Program, and the Oklahoma Physicians Manpower Training Program, which provides scholarships for medical students and medical personnel who commit to practice in underserved rural areas. Also, the first state funding for Gifted and Talented classes was provided in 1976 and, from 1976 through 1978, Oklahoma ranked first among all states in the percentage increases of funding for higher education. One of Boren’s most far-reaching projects in promoting quality education at all levels is the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence, which he founded in 1985. The foundation recognizes outstanding public school students and teachers and helps establish private local foundations to help give academic endowment grants to local public schools. As a senator, he was the author of the National Security Education Act in 1992, which provides scholarships for study abroad and for learning additional languages, as well as legislation to restore the tax deductibility of gifts of appreciated property to universities in 1993. Boren, also a former state legislator, spent nearly three decades in elective politics before becoming the president of the University of Oklahoma. Boren was the youngest governor in the nation when he served from 1974 to 1978. Known as a reformer, Boren campaigned with a broom as his symbol. During his term, he instituted many progressive programs, including conflict-of-interest rules, campaignfinancing disclosure, stronger open meeting laws for public bodies, more competitive bidding on state government contracts and reform of the state’s prison system, including expanded education programs for first-time offenders and the largest expansion of the work-release program in state history.



SOONERSPORTS.COM

During his time in the U.S. Senate from 1979 to 1994, Boren served on the Senate Finance and Agriculture Committees and was the longest-serving chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. From his days as a state legislator and governor of Oklahoma to Washington, Boren carried a commitment to reform, leading numerous efforts to make government work better for American citizens. As chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, he strengthened oversight of secret government programs and reformed the procedures for Presidential notice of such programs to Congress. For more than 10 years, he led the fight for congressional campaign finance reform and for legislation discouraging administration and congressional staff from cashing in on government experience and contacts by becoming lobbyists. In addition, he introduced legislation seeking to limit gifts and travel subsidies that government workers, including members of Congress, can receive from lobbyists. Boren also chaired the special 1992-93 Joint Committee on the Organization of Congress, which produced proposals to make Congress more efficient and responsive by streamlining congressional bureaucracy, reducing staff sizes and reforming procedures to end legislative gridlock. Boren left the U.S. Senate in 1994 with an approval rating of 91 percent after being re-elected with 83 percent of the vote in 1990, the highest percentage in the nation in a U.S. Senate contest in that election year. Boren served from 1988 to 1997 on the Yale University Board of Trustees. His university experience also includes four years on the faculty of Oklahoma Baptist University, where he was chairman of the Department of Political Science and chairman of the Division of Social Sciences. In 1993, the American Association of University Professors presented Boren with the Henry Yost Award as Education Advocate of the Year. In April 2004, Boren received the Mory’s Cup from the Mory’s Association at Yale University. In making the presentation to Boren it was noted that he was the first Yale graduate in the university’s history extending over three centuries to have served as a Governor, U.S. Senator and President of a major university. Under Boren’s leadership, the University of Oklahoma has developed and emerged as a “pacesetter university in American public higher education,” with 20 major new programs initiated since his inauguration. They include establishment of the Honors College, the Charles M. Russell Center for the Study of Art of the American West, a new expository writing program for freshmen modeled on the program at Harvard, an interdisciplinary religious studies program, the Artist-in-Residence Program, the International Programs Center, and the Faculty-in-Residence Program putting faculty family apartments in student residence halls. The Retired Professors Program has been started, bringing 50 retired full professors back to the University to teach freshmen.


The number of new facilities started or completed on the campus during the Boren years has matched the explosion in new programs. Since 1994, almost $1 billion in construction projects have been completed or are under way on OU’s three campuses. Among the largest of the current projects are the $18.7 million renovation and expansion of historic Holmberg Hall, home of music and dance programs; the $67 million National Weather Center; the $19 million addition to the Michael F. Price College of Business; the $17 million Gaylord Hall for journalism and mass communication; the $27 million Stephenson Research and Technology Center; and the $83.5 million stadium project. The Health Sciences Center has a new Student Union, and the new $24 million Stanton L. Young Biomedical Research Center. Above all, the Boren years have been marked by an emphasis on putting students first. There is not a university president in the country who is more committed to students as his number one priority. He teaches a freshman-level course in political science each semester and is one of the few presidents of major universities to teach. Boren is married to Molly Shi Boren, a former judge and English teacher. Molly Boren has two degrees from the University of Oklahoma: a master’s degree in English and a Juris Doctor degree from the OU College of Law.



A native of Seminole, Boren has two children, Carrie Christine Boren, an Episcopal minister, and David Daniel Boren, a member of the United States Congress from Oklahoma. Devoting much of his life to public service, Boren drew from the example of his parents, the late Congressman Lyle H. Boren and Christine Boren.

JOE CASTIGLIONE 93IRU,QWHUFROOHJLDWH$WKO HWLFV3URJUDPV  'LUHFWRURI$WKOHWLFV 11TH YEAR AT OU

Principle Centered Leader …Visionary ... Passionate Advocate for StudentAthletes ... Establishes Standards of Excellence & Cultural Values ... Builder of Championship Programs The success of the University of Oklahoma Athletics Department is known throughout the world of intercollegiate athletics. The last decade may stand as one of the most successful in school history and leading that effort is Joe Castiglione, the Sooner AD since 1998. Castiglione’s Sooner team has worked to create a place where competitive dreams come true and academic goals are reached with regularity. Excellence is the norm at OU, and the Sooners’ sports programs, student-athletes, coaches and staff are committed to that standard. For Castiglione, though, it’s not just about the championships and trophies. The victories that he celebrates with his Sooners include graduation rates that continue to climb, record-setting grade point averages and academic honors. The true measure of achievement for Castiglione and, by extension, the department’s coaches and staff, is measured in the success of the student-athletes in relation to the department’s mission statement “Inspiring champions today … Preparing leaders for tomorrow.” With the support of OU President David L. Boren and OU’s seven-member Board of Regents, Castiglione has gone about creating a climate that creates lofty goals, high standards and a commitment to ethical behavior that is second to none. Since arriving at OU in 1998 after an outstanding career at Missouri, Castiglione has seen the Sooners finish in the top 30 of the Learfield Director’s Cup in nine of the last 11 years. Through his insistence that daily and long-term decisions be made in a financially responsible manner, the department has closed the books in the black in each of the last 11 years. In 2009, the department increased its direct support of the academic mission of the University by increasing its annual commitment to $4 million dollars. Through direct and indirect support, OU Athletics, under Castiglione’s leadership, provides more than $7 million to OU Academics. The 11th director of athletics in University of Oklahoma history, Castiglione is quick to give full credit to the student-athletes and coaches, the staff, OU President David L. Boren, the OU Board of Regents, the donors and the fans for the success experienced during his tenure. It was that commitment to a team approach emphasis that was one of the many qualities that the search committee recognized when they recommended Castiglione to university administration in 1998.



SOONERSPORTS.COM

In recognition of the performance of OU’s teams on the field and in the classroom, of the fiscal stability created during his tenure, the dramatic increases in donor giving, facility construction and renovations, and the cutting-edge programs that the department has begun during his tenure, Castiglione was named Athletic Director of the Year in May 2009 by the Sports Business Journal. That award was one of several earned by Castiglione and the department. The 2007 PRISM Award winner, presented by the School of Sports Management at the University of Massachusetts, OU was just the second Division I winner and all of the programs recognized by the selection panel were started under Castiglione’s leadership with the full support of university administration. His peers have honored him for the department’s achievements as well. In October 2004, the Bobby Dodd Foundation named him Athletics Director of the Year. In 2003, he was inducted into the National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators Hall of Fame. In June 2001, he received the General Robert R. Neyland Athletic Director Award for lifetime achievement from the All-American Football Foundation. The National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) named him Central Region AD of the Year in 2000. The achievement that may bring him the most pride, though, came in May 2007 when he completed his master’s of education degree from OU. To understand the need for education and lifelong learning, OU’s student-athletes just have to look at their AD who started and completed his master’s degree while running the department and maintaining his priorities to his family. He quickly put his experience to use as an adjunct professor in the College of Education, teaching a graduate class in Marketing & Development. In his tenure, OU has celebrated seven national team championships and more than 40 conference team titles; record numbers of graduating student-athletes and record-setting grade point averages for Sooner teams; dramatically increased donor giving; huge increases in ticket sales for all sports; major facility improvements, and development and construction of new facilities. Castiglione was instrumental in the athletics department’s major campaign, Great Expectations: The Campaign For Sooner Sports. The campaign ended in November of 2003 with more than $125 million raised. The figure has grown to almost $200 million since then as funds continue to be raised for facility improvements and scholarship endowments. The largest fund-raising effort in OU athletics history includes projects that impact each of OU’s nearly 500 student-athletes and has become a national model for intercollegiate athletics.

Hired on April 30, 1998, Castiglione joined the Sooner family after serving as athletics director at Missouri. In his 17-year career with the Tigers, Castiglione, who was named director of athletics at Missouri on Dec. 15, 1993, was credited with rebuilding sports programs, hiring outstanding coaches, implementing an innovative master plan for facilities, inspiring record-setting increases in fund-raising and balancing the budget in each of his five years as athletics director. A 1979 Maryland graduate, Castiglione received the Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Distinguished Alumnus Award in April 2007. He began his career as the sports promotions director at Rice. He then worked a year as director of athletic fund-raising at Georgetown before being hired in 1981 at Missouri as director of communications and marketing. His commitment to the success of student-athletes has gone beyond the Norman campus and he has served at national and conference level. He chairs the NCAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Football Academic Progress Rate (APR) Working Group and is currently serving on the Gatorade Collegiate Advisory Board and the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame Board of Directors. He served two terms as chair of the Big 12 Board of Athletics Directors and is a past president of both the Division I-A Athletic Directors Association and NACDA. He served a four-year term on the NCAA Championship/Competition Cabinet and the NCAA Baseball Committee and is a past member of the NCAA Football Special Events Certification Committee. He recently served on the NCAA Diversity Leadership Strategic Planning Committee and the NCAA Division I Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Basketball Discussion Group. A member of the Phi Delta Theta Foundation Board of Trustees, he is a highly requested speaker at annual conventions and continuing education institutes. A native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Castiglione is married to the former Kristen Bartel, a 1990 graduate of the University of Missouri. They are the parents of two sons, Joseph Robert, Jr. and Jonathan Edmund.

OUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conference title was its eighth overall (2009,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;08,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;04,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;93,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;91,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;86,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;85,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;84) and first ever in Ames, Iowa. With the win, the Sooners have now won a conference title in every Big 12 venue. Last year was supposed to be the Oklahoma debut of a freshman sensation and it proved so - just not the one everyone had anticipated before the season started. After Natasha Kelley tore her achilles during the fall training period, the Sooners looked to others to fill the void and fellow frosh, Megan Ferguson, certainly did her part. The Olathe, Kan., native garnered All-America status on beam at the 2009 NCAA Championship and became the first freshman in Big 12 history to win multiple event titles at the conference championship.

Most Outstanding Gymnast - Award embodies the whole student-athlete from academics, athletics, community service, campus organizations, social representation. :LQQHU.ULVWLQ6PLWK



A winner on bars and beam at the Big 12 meet, Ferguson is only the second Sooner gymnast to claim a Big 12 crown in her freshman campaign, joining Ashley Cooney who won the vault title in 2004. Oklahoma held its own against the Big 12 once again, posting a 6-1 mark in 2009. The Sooners have reeled off an impressive 18-3 mark against conference opponents since the start of the 2007 schedule. Winner of the last two Big 12 titles, the Sooners are the only conference squad to advance to the NCAA Championships each of the last two seasons. While Oklahoma has been in the NCAA Championships field every year since 2004 (six years in a row), the other Big 12 squads have a combined six appearances during that timespan.
