2011 seniors: Roethlisberger, Higgins, Barker, Cowan and Boulavsky

OUR TIME IS NOW OKLAHOMA’S EXPERIENCE LOOKS TO LEAD SOONERS DEEP INTO POSTSEASON DURING 2011 SEASON

The University of Oklahoma volleyball team reported to campus on August 8 to begin preseason practice. Practice got underway the next morning and the team opens the season on Friday, August 26 against SMU at 7 p.m.

is unique. They’re just a good group of kids. They’re intense when they need to be but they’re also fun when they need to be. When it comes time to work, we get down to business. When it’s time to have fun, we have fun.”

In preparation for the upcoming campaign, SoonerSports. com sat down with Head Coach Santiago Restrepo for a two-part series to learn more about a team that advanced to the Sweet 16 just last season and returns five starters and its libero.

On how last year’s success affects this season… “It’s great to be the underdog when people don’t expect much out of you. It’s also great to be the team everyone wants to beat because of their previous success. That’s why you play the match. That’s where you want to be. You know every day people are going to give you their best performance and you have to respond. I don’t shy away from anything. We weren’t intimated by Penn State’s tradition and we went in there thinking we could win. You look at the scores of those sets, and it was close in the first two. We took something away from that and that’s the important thing. It’s recognizing how close you were to pulling off a huge upset. Our motto is why not us? We go in with mentality that we’re going to bring it. Bring your best game every match and let’s win. You want the other team to bring their best so you can beat the best.”

On his 2011 senior class… “I am very grateful to [Barker, Boulavsky, Cowan and Higgins] for all they’ve done. They’ve meant a lot to this program. They’ve contributed to this program on and off the court. They have been with me through very tough personal times in my life. They’ve held the team together, and I’m very grateful for that.” On the makeup of this year’s team… “They’re all very hard workers. They’re all extremely gifted. They get along very well including the freshmen. It’s going to be a good mesh. It’s going to be great to see our seniors become good role models for our younger players. They’re a fun group, too. Nothing is the same every day. You’re always going to find something that

On improvements the team can make… “Every day you have to get better. Last year we put an emphasis on strong serving so we could give ourselves an advantage because we are great defenders. If we can take at least one of their offensive threats out we’re going to be able to defend better. We have to be able to hit the ball smarter. We’re not necessarily the tallest team out there but we can be very efficient on hitting around the block and setting up different shots. We have to be better blockers. We just have to deflect the ball in bounds. We did that last year, but we need to do a lot more of that this year.” On the non-conference schedule… “We have several matches before we start conference which is probably the most we’ve played since I’ve been here. They’re going to be difficult. We’re bringing in teams that have beaten in the past and a team like SMU that’s beaten us in the spring. Missouri State has been tough. Oral Roberts has international players that are good. Those players are very knowledgeable and have good fundamentals. It’s tough to play teams like that. After that opening weekend, we turnaround and play Colorado State who has annually been one of the best teams in the country. We are throwing them in the fire the first four days of the season. We go to Miami, a team that was selected to win the ACC. Auburn is an upcoming team from the SEC that got in the tournament last year. Florida A&M also

has a lot of international players. Cincinnati is another team on our schedule that’s tough. They’ve finished in the top three of the BIG EAST. We scheduled those teams to have a strong non-conference schedule.” On the Big 12… “The Big 12 is a wide open race. It’s a tough league but one win could turn the tide for a team. You have to bring it every night because you never know. The pressure is on every single team. We have to play our best to win every night. We’re not a team that can afford to take a break. We have to come out on all cylinders and play our best.” On the setters… “Brianne (Barker) is a very good leader. She is the one that has to be able to make our other players better. She has to find a way to do that. We’re going to have a chance to give the freshmen a chance to play and she has to figure out a way to make them better. She does a very good job of that. She has to get a lot more touches on blocking. She has to have the mentality of defending. She has very good defense. She has controlled our tempo and offense from the get-go so we’re extremely confident she’ll do a terrific job this year. “Kylie (Cowan) has done a tremendous job for us on the second team. She will be someone that can give us valuable minutes on the right back defending and serving. She has a very strong serve which is what we need in that position and she also has very good hands in case Bri has to defend the first ball. “We have two freshmen that are also setters (Kaitlyn Drawe and Caroline Weir). They’ll do some good work for us. They’re gifted but there’s a lot of work ahead for them as far as location, chemistry with the team, getting stronger, faster and jumping higher. We have four people listed as setters that will contribute especially in practice and that’s key.” On the attackers… “We have Caitlin (Higgins) who is as healthy as she’s ever been. She passes the ball very well for us. She’s very important for us. She has a very good connection with Brianne (Barker). That’s going to be very key. Morgan (Reynolds) can hit from either the right or left side and that’s something that’s very unique. She’s a left-handed hitter and she’s unique in our system because we can move her one way or the other depending on what you want to do. Kayla (Rodriguez) is the strongest she has been. She’s worked extremely hard over the summer to put some muscle on. She’s jumping a little higher too. She’ll be another one waiting in the wings to be able to give us valuable minutes. She’s gifted and a very hard hitter and very good defender. “Tara (Dunn) reaches high and her point of contact is pretty high, probably higher than any of our outside hitters, but she’s raw considering she hasn’t played at this level yet. We’ll see how she does. She’s also a very good passer. She will be up to the challenge. “Suzy (Boulavsky) is different because she’s left-handed and playing on the right side. Not everyone has that. Both Morgan and Suzy give us that but they’re two totally different players which makes it hard for other teams to adjust to because they don’t see it as much. The right side is natural to them because it opens the court and they can see the set easier. It makes it hard to block because you don’t see a lefty too many times. Suzy has a large repertoire of shots. She can hit the ball hard but she mixes it up with roll shots and tips down the line, deep. She has a very good sharp angle. She is very effective with what she does.” On the middle blockers… “Sallie (McLaurin) is really talented in transition. She gets off the net as fast as she can, to the ball as fast as she can and off the floor as fast as she can. That’s unique because middle blockers don’t usually move that quickly after they go up and block, coming off the net and then going for a hit. She’s very good. Then we have Carlee (Roethlisberger). She’s a gifted athlete that jumps high and hits the ball high. She’s going to have to get some reps with Brianne (Barker). Hopefully, they’ll click. She could give us some minutes. Grace (Whitley) reminds me a lot of Sallie in how she comes off the net and hits really fast. She’s really fast and a very good jumper.” On the defensive specialists… “I think they’re a big reason why we went to the Sweet 16. If we didn’t have María (Fernada), Eden (Williams), Mindy (Gowen) and even Brianne (Barker) and Caitlin (Higgins) playing defense the way they did we wouldn’t have made it that far. They all have the little things they do that are very good. Maria is good at passing. She passes better than anyone I’ve coached here. Mindy is quick to coverage. Eden is good at reading the offense and being at the right place. She also does a good job of digging balls and chasing balls. They’re all well-rounded players, not just one dimensional. In practice, they don’t let the ball drop. They make it exciting. That’s what you need in practice. Mindy has a very good short serve that gives teams trouble. They are getting a very good dig-to-kill percentage.”

RESTREPO Head Coach Eighth Season

E

ntering his eighth season as the head coach at the University of Oklahoma, Santiago Restrepo has brought the program to new heights. Pairing his international recruiting with his hard-working, blue collar coaching style, Restrepo has made a name for Oklahoma within the volleyball community.

The program felt Restrepo’s impact as soon as he arrived on campus from his previous coaching stop at Southern Mississippi. In his first season at the helm of the Sooner program, he led the 2004 OU squad to a 12-17 record. No Sooner squad had produced a better record since the 1997 squad that reached the NCAA Tournament. While the 2004 season caught many people’s eye, nobody would predict what would happen two years later as Restrepo led the Sooners to the best season in school history. The 2006 season broke plenty of OU records and sparked momentum for the 2007 season. The history-making 2006 and 2007 seasons were remarkable, considering they followed a 2005 season that saw the Sooners finish 7-22. However, Restrepo was getting the pieces in place in 2005 for the historic next year as his recruiting skills shined with the addition of junior college transfer Eliane Santos. In her junior season, Santos made her mark on Big 12 volleyball, finishing in the top five in the conference in blocks and kills and was named one of Collegiate Volleyball Update’s top-five blockers in the country. Restrepo earned Big 12 and Regional Coach of the Year honors and was recognized by CVU.com as its National Coach of the Year as he led the Sooners to the best one-year turnaround in Big 12 history. Behind Restrepo’s leadership, the Sooners recorded the best winning percentage in school history with a 28-6 record (.824) and finished a program-best second in the Big 12 Conference race (17-3). Restrepo’s successful 2006 season included OU’s first-ever win over Texas in the series history as well as entry into the 2006 NCAA Tournament for only the fourth time in school history and the program’s second Sweet 16 trip. Oklahoma finished the season as one of the best in the country with a No. 12 final ranking, its highest in history. The Oklahoma players also felt the presence of Restrepo, individually, as all five seniors of the 2006 class earned All-Big 12 recognition while Joanna Schmitt and Santos became the second and third All-Americans in school history. OU did not disappoint in 2007 either. After being picked ninth in the preseason coaches’ poll, the Sooners advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the second consecutive season. It also marked the second time in OU history that the Sooners made back-to-back appearances in the NCAA Tournament. Senior outside hitter Sarah Weiland represented OU on the All-Big 12 honorable mention team while freshman Francie Ekwerekwu was named to the All-Big 12 freshman team. For their efforts in the classroom, five Sooners earned Academic All-Big 12 honors and three were named Academic All-District. four. y 2009 at the age of from leukemia in Jul ay spital aw Ho d ’s sse ren pa ild o, Ch e ag Th son, Javier Santi cer awareness, visit can d oo ldh chi Restrepo’s youngest te mo u can do to help pro To find out what yo . ter Cen al at OU Medic

In 2008, he coached Brianne Barker and Caitlin Higgins to All-Big 12 Freshman team honors. Higgins became the first Oklahoma player to earn the Sports Imports/American Volleyball Coaches Association Division I National Player of the Week on Nov. 4. After losing his youngest son to leukemia prior to the start of the 2009 season, Restrepo returned to lead his team back to the NCAA Championship for a third time in five years. The Sooners finished fourth in the Big 12 with an overall mark of 18-12

Sophomore Suzy Boulavsky was named to AVCA All-Central Region honorable mention. Barker and Ekwerekwu were named honorable mention All-Big 12. The 2010 Sooners made the NCAA Championship, marking the fourth time in five years OU has advanced to the postseason. Oklahoma was awarded its first-ever first and second round host site and reached the Sweet 16 for the third time in program history. The season was highlighted by a 23-11 overall mark and third-place finish in conference play at 13-7. Freshman Sallie McLaurin became the first Oklahoma player to be named Big 12 Freshman of the Year and was the fifth named to the all-freshman team. Barker and Boulavsky were also named to the All-Big 12 first team. Barker earned first team All-Central Region honors from the AVCA, while Boulavsky earned honorable mention recognition.

Prior to coaching at Southern Miss, Restrepo served three seasons (1998-2000) as an assistant coach at Saint Louis University under Marilyn Nolen. Restrepo brought a tough training regimen to the Billiken program in 1998, and his dedication and work sparked an immediate improvement. That year, Saint Louis posted its fourth best single-season winning percentage in school history at 21-7 (.750). In 2000, he helped the Billikens to 23 victories, the most since 1996. A native of Bogota, Colombia, Restrepo served as the women’s head coach at East Stroudsburg (Pa.) University from 1994-97.

Boulavsky also became the program’s first Academic All-American after being named to the ESPN/ College Sports Information Directors of America third team.

He led the Warriors to a 21-11 record and a semifinal finish in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) in his first season in the league. East Stroudsburg posted its best record in school history with a 32-2 mark in 1996. For his team’s efforts, Restrepo was named PSAC Coach of the Year. During his tenure, he led ESU to a 75-32 (.735) overall record.

Restrepo was named the fourth head coach in OU volleyball history on January 26, 2004. During the search process, OU Athletics Director Joe Castiglione was set on making a program-changing hire that fit perfectly into the values of the university.

A former NCAA Division I All-American at East Stroudsburg, Restrepo was also a four-time all-conference selection. He earned team Most Valuable Player honors all four years and was the co-winner of the Senior Athlete Award in 1986. He was inducted into the East Stroudsburg Hall of Fame in 2004.

The then-reigning Conference USA Coach of the Year, Restrepo left Southern Mississippi to fulfill a dream of coaching in the Big 12. In Restrepo’s final season at Southern Miss, he led his 2003 team to a programbest 27-6 record.

Following his collegiate career, Restrepo played one season professionally in France and returned to the United States where he played on the American Volleyball Players Pro Beach Tour.

That squad reeled off three winning streaks of at least six matches, including one eight-win string, the longest in school history. Three Golden Eagle players garnered All-Conference USA honors during Restrepo’s three-year tenure, including two in his final season. He left Southern Miss with a conference record of 52-40 (.565) and an overall mark of 127-72 (.638). Perhaps the most remarkable part of the Golden Eagles’ 27-win season is that it came just two years after a nine-win campaign. His first season with Southern Miss, 2001, was difficult by all accounts. The team went 9-19 and finished 11th in Conference USA. One recruiting class later, his 2002 team improved to 16-15 and finished the conference season in eighth place. The team was sold on Restrepo’s coaching plan and tremendous success was around the corner in 2003.

DAVID L.

BOREN University President

D

avid L. Boren, who has served Oklahoma as governor and U.S. senator, became the thirteenth 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 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, campaign-financing 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. 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 9l percent after being reelected 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 as a member of 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 recent 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. Presidential Travel Scholarships, students from 111 countries on campus, more reciprocal international exchange agreements than any other university and the new International Programs Center are all making OU more international. The new Honors College helps to assure that no students need to leave Oklahoma to find an educational experience to match their potential. In 1995, Boren launched the “Reach for Excellence” fundraising campaign with a five-year goal of $200 million, which was twice

as large as any fundraising drive in Oklahoma history. The drive exceeded $500 million, raising OU into the top 15 public universities in the United States in private endowment per capita. Since 1994, endowed professorships have increased from 100 to 560 and the OU donor base has grown from 18,000 to more than 125,000 friends and alumni. During the first 10 years of Boren’s tenure over $1 billion in private gifts were donated to the university. Above all, the Boren years have been marked by an emphasis on putting students first. There is not a university president in the country that 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. Mrs. Boren is President Emeritus of the Oklahoma Arts Institute, which provides education programs in nine arts disciplines for high school students from across the state who are gifted in the arts. Molly Boren has two degrees from the University of Oklahoma, a master’s degree in English and a Juris Doctorate from the OU College of Law. A native of Seminole, Boren has two children, Carrie Christine Boren, an Episcopal minister, and David Daniel Boren, who has served as 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 Athletics Director Renaissance – A rebirth or renewal

T

he word “renaissance” has often been used to describe the University of Oklahoma since the arrival of David L. Boren as its 13th president. It’s no accident then that the same term could be used to describe the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and its leader, Joe Castiglione. Just as Boren has transformed the university community that the department is an integral part of, Castiglione, with the support of Boren and OU’s Board of Regents, has done the same thing with the athletics department, easily one of the most recognized representatives of the state’s flagship for higher education. A department with a long tradition of excellence, there are some who would argue that the past 13 years represent the best of the best. With seven national championships and 44 conference titles produced in his tenure, it would be hard to dispute that. A place where competitive dreams come true and academic goals are the expectations, not the exceptions, has been created at OU. Through his leadership and the support of the University’s administration, there is a department-wide commitment, involving student-athletes, coaches and staff, to that standard. The 11th director of athletics at OU, Castiglione arrived on the Sooner campus in 1998 and what he found was nothing like what you would see today. He made changes, some big and other no so, and, in the process, created a team of administrators, coaches and support staff who have built a climate that creates lofty goals, high standards and a commitment to ethical behavior that is second to none. The emphasis has been and will always be on OU’s 500-plus student-athletes who have flourished in the atmosphere, creating new levels of excellence in competition and in the classroom only to raise the bar in succeeding years. Their performances enhance the belief shared by Castiglione, the department’s staff and the university family that the best is yet to come. Proof of the overall excellence of the program can be demonstrated by the annual Learfield Director’s Cup rankings. The Sooners broke into the top 10 for the first time in school history at the conclusion of the 2010-11 academic year. That performance came after the department finished in the top 30 in 10 of the previous 12 years, a sustained pattern of excellence not seen before in the history of one of the nation’s premier intercollegiate athletics departments. 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” Since arriving at OU in 1998 after an outstanding administrative career at Missouri, Castiglione has insisted that daily and long-term decisions be made in a financially responsible manner. The result of that commitment has helped the department close the books in the black in each of the last 13 years, making it one of the few Division I programs which remain totally self-sustaining. His understanding of how the department fits into the University’s academic mission led to a decision in June 2009 to increase the direct support provided by the department on an annual basis to $4 million dollars. Through direct and indirect support, OU Athletics, under Castiglione’s leadership, provides more than $7 million annually to OU’s Academics Budget. Facility improvement and construction has been carried out at a record pace and Castiglione takes pride to point out that those improvements have all been paid for with private money.

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 that the search committee recognized when they recommended Castiglione to university administration in 1998. 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 National 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 a 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 graduate classes in Marketing Development and Leadership in Higher Education. Castiglione was instrumental in the athletics department’s major campaign, Great Expectations: The Campaign For Sooner Sports. The largest fund-raising effort in OU athletics history included projects that impact each of OU’s nearly 500 student-athletes and has become a national model for intercollegiate athletics. The campaign ended three years later with more than $125 million raised and that figure has grown to more than $300 million since then as funds continue to be raised for facility improvements, including the recently announced $75 million Sooner Student Housing Center, and scholarship endowments. 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 University’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 NCAA’s Football Academic Progress Rate (APR) Working Group and is currently serving on the Gatorade Collegiate Advisory Board, the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame Board of Directors and the NCAA Bowl Licensing Committee. He served three terms as the 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 Women’s Basketball Discussion Group. He was recently asked to serve on the Bowl Licensing Task Force by Dr. Mark Emmert, NCAA president. A former member of the Phi Delta Theta Foundation Board of Trustees, he is a highly requested speaker at annual conventions and continuing education institutes. His involvement in the local community has led to service with civic clubs, churches and charities, including the United Way of Norman. Castiglione recently served his third term as OU’s campus co-chair, which resulted in the highest recorded contributions ever by faculty, staff and students to the United Way of Norman’s annual campaign. 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.

HOW SWEET IT IS! SOONERS ADVANCE TO NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP THIRD ROUND FOR THIRD TIME IN PROGRAM HISTORY

O

klahoma finished the season 23-11 overall, the most wins since the 28 victories in 2006 and was ranked 21st in the final American Volleyball Coaches Association poll. The Sooners finished third in the Big 12 with a 13-7 mark, the second highest win total for OU in the Big 12 era. Oklahoma advanced to its third Sweet 16 in program history. It was OU’s second consecutive NCAA Championship appearance and fourth in five years. OU has now been to four NCAA Championships under head coach Santiago Restrepo.

The Sooners fell in straight sets to the four-time national champion Penn State Nittany Lions in the NCAA Championship third round on Dec. 10. Junior setter Brianne Barker led the OU offense to a .217 hitting percentage, the highest mark put up by an opponent in Rec Hall in 2010. OU advanced to the third round with a five-set win over Tulsa on Dec. 4. The Sooners set team school records in hitting percentage (.335), kills (73) and assists (67) in the current scoring era. Barker recorded the program’s first triple-double. Oklahoma opened the NCAA Championship on Dec. 3 against Wichita State and downed the Shockers for the first time in six tries.

Barker was named the team’s most valuable player at the team’s annual awards banquet, while sophomore Morgan Reynolds was named most improved. Seniors Chrissy Disarro and Sarah Freudenrich earned the Sooner Award.

Seven Sooners were named to the Academic All-Big 12 team Boulavsky, Disarro, Freudenrich, Reynolds, Higgins and sophomore María Fernanda and senior Francie Ekwerekwu. Seven players earned all-tournament team honors throughout the year.

Barker’s 1,340 assists set an Oklahoma 25-point rally scoring record and ranks as the fifth highest single season total in program history. She recorded 19 double-doubles in 2010.

Other key performances in 2010 included libero Fernanda who had nine matches with 23 or more digs this season. Freshman McLaurin’s 153 blocks are an OU 25-point rally scoring record and the most by a Sooner since Elaine Santos’ 180 in 2006. The Sooners also got valuable minutes from freshmen Eden Williams and Mindy Gowen, who combined for 21 service aces on the year.

Barker was named to the AVCA All-America third team and earned AVCA All-Central Region first team honors. Suzy Boulavsky was named to the AVCA All-Central Region honorable mention team and the duo was first team All-Big 12 honorees. Boulavsky led the Sooners with 3.45 kills per set. Sallie McLaurin became the first Sooner to earn Big 12 Freshman of the Year honors and was named Big 12 Rookie of the Week three times. She was also named to the All-Big 12 freshman team. McLaurin led the team with 1.25 blocks per set. Boulavsky earned Academic All-America third team honors and she and Caitlin Higgins were honored on the Academic All-District first and third teams respectively.

The Sooners got key conference wins over Missouri, Baylor and Iowa State en route to finishing third in the league with a 13-7 mark. Oklahoma went 8-3 in non-conference play with losses to Wichita State and ranked Tennessee and Florida State squads. Boulavsky led the team with 3.49 kills per set in those matches, while Freudenrich had the highest hitting average at .393. Restrepo won his 100th match as the head coach at Oklahoma on Aug. 29 with a sweep of UT-Arlington.

A PACESETTER FOR PUBLIC HIGHER EDUCATION IN THE UNITED STATES “The University of Oklahoma is truly a great university. It is becoming a pacesetter for public higher education in the United States. We must no longer keep the university’s excellence a secret! It’s time for us to let others know about the strengths of our university and our determination to make it even better.” - University of Oklahoma President David L.

THE PATH TO GRADUATION PRENTICE GAUTT ACADEMIC CENTER In the 1950s, he came to OU to play football, and, in the process, broke down barriers and crushed stereotypes. Today, OU student-athletes use the Prentice Gautt Academic Center to break another kind of stereotype. The center that today’s student-athletes use everyday now bears the name of the man who left an indelible legacy for Sooner Athletics and helped change a society in the process. The formal dedication of the Prentice Gautt Academic Center was held Friday, Sept. 17, 1999. The proposal to re-name the center was approved by the OU Board of Regents in March 1999. “It is appropriate that this center be named after Prentice Gautt,” OU President David L. Boren said. “His personal values and character, along with his leadership as associate commissioner of the Big 12 Conference, continue to bring pride to his alma mater. His personal example of quiet courage, grace under pressure, and dedication to the university helped open the doors of opportunity for countless number of African-American and minority student-athletes who have followed him into collegiate athletics.” The professional consultants of the Prentice Gautt Academic Center help student-athletes with a variety of academic tasks, from learning strategy instruction to any stage of the writing process including preparing for an essay exam and the formal research paper. The goal is to help student-athletes develop the strategies they need to be successful by encouraging the use of the center for all facets of the learning and writing processes encountered in college.

The Prentice Gautt Academic Center provides studentathletes with a state-of-the-art academic support facility. The environment encourages a collaboration between staff members and student-athletes. In addition, it is highly conducive to learning in all areas of students’ academic endeavors and features seven learning centers.

KERR FOUNDATION COMPUTER CENTER In the 21st century, computers have become an integral part of the learning experience. Students need access to computers and their resources almost daily. The Kerr Foundation Computer Centers are here to meet these technological needs. We provide each student with the equipment and support necessary to succeed. The computer center is housed within the Prentice Gautt Academic Center and houses nearly 200 computers available exclusively to our student-athletes.

LEARNING CENTERS: KERR CAREER CENTER Whether student-athletes are freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors or graduates, they will benefit from the services of the Kerr Career Center. It provides a system of services that educates and guides students through the career development process.

Students also enjoy a large amount of storage space on our athletic network. Laptop computers are checked out to students when the computer center is unavailable. This allows access to our network and resources 24 hours a day. The laptop program is very important in helping athletes stay on top of their schoolwork when traveling.

The Career Center is dedicated to helping students make the transition from college to career by developing an individualized career plan where they gather information to assist in making a decision about a career; obtain information on the suitable career list; explore classes and publications in the field as well as obtain experience; and gain knowledge and skills necessary for résumé writing, job-related letter writing and interviewing techniques.

THE UNIVERSIT Y OF OKLAHOMA SOONERS OKLAHOMA REMEMBERS GAUTT Prentice Gautt ushered in a new era for Oklahoma football when he landed a spot on the 1956 team. Former Sooner head coach Bud Wilkinson was pressured against giving Gautt a scholarship. A group of black doctors and pharmacists gave money for Gautt to attend the school. Within a year, Gautt was given a scholarship and the donated amounts were given to another black student. Gautt, considered Oklahoma’s best player in 1958, was a two-time All-Big Eight player and 1959 Orange Bowl MVP. During his senior year, Gautt was named to the academic All-America team and eventually earned master’s and doctorate degrees in psychology. The academic center for student-athletes at the University of Oklahoma was named in Gautt’s honor in 1999. A special assistant to the commissioner of the Big 12 Conference, Gautt passed away on March 17, 2005. “His personal example of quiet courage, grace under pressure, and dedication to the university helped open the doors of opportunity for countless numbers of African-Americans and minority student-athletes who have followed him into collegiate athletics,’’ said University of Oklahoma president David Boren.

The Sooners led the Big 12 in hitting and posted a batting average over .300 as a team for the sixth straight year and produced a 3.00 ERA, the best since 1978 (2.66). OU also had three three All-Americans in Tyler Ogle, Dillon Overton and Michael Rocha and led the conference with 11 selections in the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft (second in the nation).

Despite its regular season struggles in conference play, OU handled Baylor in the first round of the Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship, 84-67, good for its largest margin of victory against a league opponent in more than two seasons. Senior Cade Davis and sophomore Andrew Fitzgerald were honorable mention All-Big 12 selections, while Davis was also named to the Academic All-Big 12 First Team. Davis paced the team in scoring with his 14.2 points per game and led the Sooners in the category in each of their final seven outings (averaged 20.7 points in those contests). He finished his career with 1,015 points to rank 35th in OU history. His 181 3-point field goals rank fifth most all-time at OU.

A STORIED AND ACTIVE TRADITION OF ATHLETICS EXCELLENCE The University of Oklahoma athletics program boasts a tradition that few schools can rival. Over the years, Sooner squads have combined for 26 team national championships including eight in men’s gymnastics, seven in football, seven in wrestling, two in baseball, one in men’s golf and one in softball. The Sooner tradition isn’t something buried in the past. It inspires OU’s student-athletes to greater heights every season. In 2010-2011, the Sooners recorded their best-ever finish in the Learfield Sports Director’s Cup at No. 10. Eighteen of Oklahoma’s 21 teams advanced to postseason competition during the 2010-11 school year. Highlights included the men’s and women’s gymnastics teams finishing No. 3 nationally, the women’s track and field team finishing No. 4 and the men’s cross country team No. 5. The football team won its seventh Big 12 Championship in eleven seasons and won the 2011 Fiesta Bowl in its eighth BCS bowl appearance in eleven seasons in 2011, while the softball team advanced to the 2011 Women’s College World Series.

for those three sports by a Division I school in a single season. In 2008-2009, OU went 12-2 in football, 30-6 in men’s basketball and 32-5 in women’s basketball. The 74-win mark was previously set during the 2001-2002 season by none other than the Oklahoma Sooners. The University of Oklahoma now stands alone in college sports’ 30-30-10 club, created exclusively by OU.

Draft picks in 2010. 2010 also marked only the second time that one school has produced the top pick in consecutive NBA (OU’s Blake Griffin went first in the 2009 hoops draft) and NFL Drafts. Bradford and Griffin were both named Rookie of the Year in their respective leagues, it was the first time in history that the two award winners came from the same university.

Oklahoma’s student-athletes continue to lead in the classroom and their actions in the community are exemplary. With the Great Expectations campaign, Oklahoma continues to build the finest facilities in the nation.

• Oklahoma gymnastics great Bart Conner won two NCAA all-around crowns and led the Sooners to two NCAA titles in 1977 and 1978. A three-time Olympian (1976, ‘80, ‘84), Conner won two gold medals in 1984. He was instrumental in the foundation of the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City.

Each day, it becomes more evident that the University of Oklahoma has become one of the finest comprehensive athletics program in the country. When OU student-athletes raise the trophy of another championship, the hands responsible for hoisting that trophy symbolize thousands of Sooners around the globe.

In 2002, the Sooner men’s and women’s basketball teams carved their spot in history by advancing to the NCAA Final Four -- only the third time in NCAA history a school accomplished the feat with both teams in the same year. The OU women added two more Final Four appearances in 2009 and 2010, becoming one of only eight programs in NCAA history to reach back-to-back Final Fours.

SOME OF THE MOST RECOGNIZED TRADITIONS IN COLLEGE ATHLETICS The University of Oklahoma has a long and storied history. The rich 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:

Boomer Sooner 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.

Sooners College sports fans are hard-pressed to find a nickname that is as unique and as tied in to a state’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.

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 University’s Boola Boola but improvising the words. A year later, an addition was made to it from North Carolina’s I’m a Tarheel Born and the two combined to form today’s university fight song. 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.

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 “Boomers” and the ones who went early were called “Sooners.” 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 “The Sooner Rooters.” The success of University of Oklahoma athletics teams over the years has made the nickname synonymous with winning.

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! I’m a Sooner born and Sooner bred and when I die, I’ll be Sooner dead Rah Oklahoma, Rah Oklahoma Rah Oklahoma, OK U!

Mascots 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. During OU football and baseball games from 19151928, Mex the Dog wore a red sweater with a letter “O” 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 Deparment 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 men’s and women’s basketball. They were voted “Most Collegiate” by the Universal Cheerleading Association (UCA).


Crimson and Cream 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 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 “Crimson and Cream.” On gamedays, a sea of crimson rolls through OU’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. Pride of Oklahoma The Pride of Oklahoma Marching Band has been supporting Sooner Spirit for more than a century. Unlike many other college bands, which began as military drill units, the Pride of Oklahoma had its beginnings as a pep band. 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. Maybe that is why Sooner fans love the band so much. Not much can compare to the first “gogo” at a football game when the Pride of Oklahoma marches the interlocking OU down the field playing Boomer Sooner.

OU Chant The OU Chant is a loyalty song that is sung before every home football game, before and after every men’s and women’s basketball games and at the end of many athletic and university functions. 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

SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY THAT SUPPORTS OU OU lives by a clear and strong motto in dealing with its student-athletes...Inspiring Champions for Today, Preparing Leaders for Tomorrow. To fulfill that promise, the athletics department and student-athletes take an active role in a number of community service projects. Sooner student-athletes are exposed to life outside of sports and school work with opportunities to serve and help others. The Student Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) is a committee made up of studentathletes from all 21 intercollegiate athletic teams at the University of Oklahoma. The group coordinates community service programs for the Sooners each month. “Giving back is something that benefits us as much as those we’re helping,” says OU head softball coach Patty Gasso. “It brings us back to reality and makes us realize that there is more to life than collegiate softball. I feel it’s our duty to help out because of the role we’re in as a Division I softball program.” Oklahoma women’s basketball teams have been extremely active in the community since head coach Sherri Coale’s arrival in 1996. In addition to projects with the United Way, Coaches vs. Cancer, Mission of Hope for Haiti and Food and Shelter for Friends, Coale implemented the Sooner Big Sis Program which places women’s basketball players at elementary schools in Norman to serve as mentors and teachers’ aides. “I want our student-athletes to learn through their experience here,” says Coale, “how important it is to volunteer to be a part of whatever community they decide to reside in when their playing days are over.” Oklahoma’s student-athletes recognize that wearing the Crimson and Cream means representing a popular sports program and themselves as individuals. They are encouraged to respond to a public that adores them, while learning important lessons about making a positive impact in the lives of others and in the community in which they live.

Community service events for OU student-athletes from the past year included: More than 1400 hours of community service were put in by OU student-athletes through the Life Skills Program. Events included reading to school children, leading middle school FCA meetings, speaking to elementary school children, and visits to children’s hospital. Participated in Adopt-an-Angel Holiday Toy Drive in which toys and clothing were given to the Salvation Army, Women’s Center, Crossroads Youth, Cleveland County and individuals in need during the holiday season from the OU Athletics Department staff and student-athletes. We provided a happy holiday to 60 children. The Annual Safe Trick-or-Treat hosted by the Sooner Housing Center and OU student-athletes provided candy, games and safe entertainment for hundreds of local children and their families at the Sooner Housing Center. Held an Athletics Department canned food drive to help benefit those in need during the Thanksgiving holiday. Donations were made by student-athletes and athletics department staff to Food & Shelter for Friends and the Salvation Army in Norman, OK. Over 2000 nonperishable food items were donated. Held a campus wide OU Athletics Department blood drive with the American Red Cross to help save lives. Over 60 donors participated and 51 pints of blood were collected. Made contact with more than 1000 Norman Public School students in 20 schools participating in tutoring, mentoring, speaking engagements, and other special events through efforts of student-athletes, coaches, and Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC).

A number of student- athletes are continuing to stay involved in the Big Brothers/ Big Sisters Organization. Five student-athletes were selected to participate in Second Annual Big 12 Leadership Summit in Norman, OK on June 24th- 26th. Three student-athletes were nominated and chosen for Chick-Fil-A Community of Champions Award. The rowing team earned the 2012 CHAMPS/Life Skills Team Competition Award.

ROBIN SIEGFRIED & FAMILY STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COMPLEX Oklahoma’s weight training program 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 become bigger, faster, stronger and more flexible. 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 offseason 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 off-season periods.

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 a game. 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.” Located at the south end of the Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, the Barry Switzer Center houses administrative offices, the football locker room, the equipment room, the 10,000-squarefoot Henry J. Freede Sports Medicine Facility and the 7,000-square-foot Touchdown Club Legends Lobby in addition to the Siegfried and Family Strength and Conditioning Complex.

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

HENRY J. FREEDE, M.D., SPORTS MEDICINE FACILITY 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.”

GREAT EXPECTATIONS AND BEYOND 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 more than 1,000 All-Americans. 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. “Great Expectations - The Campaign for Sooner Sports,” a recently completed fund-raising 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, softball, volleyball, wrestling, softball, tennis, soccer and track and field; new strength and conditioning and sports medicine centers and an indoor training center.

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. This historical facility is the largest sports arena in the state, and following its recent expansion, now ranks among the 15 largest on-campus facilities in the nation.

Everest Training Center Considered one of the premier indoor facilities in the country, the Everest Training Center is a 74,000-square-foot center that includes a full-size playing field, simulated stadium lighting, a complete scoreboard with play clocks, LED 40-yard timing devices and a ceiling that hangs 65 feet above the playing surface to allow for all kicking and throwing drills.

Henry J. Freede, M.D., Sports Medicine Facility This 10,000-square-foot sports medicine facility within the Barry Switzer Center treats athletes from all 21 sports, ensuring the best possible health for OU student-athletes through preventative medicine and post-injury treatment and rehabilitation.

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. Robin Siegfried and Family Strength and Conditioning Complex This 13,000-square-foot facility serves more than 500 athletes in OU’s 21 sports. The state-of-the-art facility inside the Barry Switzer Center has been central to OU’s success in

Barry Switzer Center A special feature is the Barry Switzer Center on the south side of the Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, where OU’s storied football history is displayed, media conferences are held and recruits are entertained. The center recently experienced a significant upgrade to reflect this success and to fully realize the original vision as an exhibit area focusing on OU’s greatest victories and most successful coaching eras.

Fred & Mary Eddy Jones Foundation Red Room The Red Room is where OU football players meet as a team or offensive/defensive units to watch motivational videos before each game. OU’s offense and defense post their goals for each week, and the Sooner coach holds his post-game press conference in this area. Headington Family Tennis Center Expansion The men’s and women’s tennis teams compete in one of the finest indoor venues in the country. Highlights of the new 55,000 square-foot facility include six air-conditioned courts, championship-quality lighting and surface, and approximately 375 chair-back seats for spectators, which are elevated between the courts.

notable because it was donations exclusively from tennis letterwinners who made the new courts possible. John Crain Field at the OU Soccer Complex The University of Oklahoma Athletics Department and the soccer program enjoyed a $4.5 million expansion to the soccer stadium in 2006. In addition to a press box and a permanent grandstand, a multi-use building is located between John Crain Field at the OU Soccer Complex and the Headington Family Tennis Center at the corner of Chautauqua Avenue and Imhoff Road. The multi-purpose complex includes locker rooms, meeting and video rooms and offices for the student-athletes and coaches. Softball Hitting Facility The OU softball team broke ground on an indoor hitting facility in July 2008 that was completed prior to the 2009 season. In 2002, the Robert E. Young and Family Softball Locker Room was added to the Softball Complex, giving the team a spacious and comfortable gathering place for preparation and relaxation. In 2003, the softball field was named in honor of retired softball coach and women’s administrator Marita Hynes. Baseball Practice Facility With an estimated cost of $1 million, the OU baseball team opened an indoor hitting facility and practice infield at L. Dale Mitchell Park prior to the 2009 season. The 5,160-square -foot facility has three full-size hitting/pitching lanes and is air conditioned and heated. Previous renovations to L. Dale Mitchell Park were completed in 2001 when the press box underwent state-of-the-art improvements including four suites and a press area, the Mike Treps Media Room. The facility originally opened in 1982.

John Jacobs Track and Field Complex The project, which was completed in spring 2004, included a 25,000-square-foot building connecting the Mosier Indoor Practice Facility with the Everest Training Center. This new building includes track and field locker rooms, a sports medicine room and a video teaching room. The John Jacobs Track was altered and re-surfaced to include European Oval turns for a faster track and nine 48-inch wide lanes. Other improvements include upgrades of field event areas, placing them directionally north/south and east/west to take advantage of wind conditions; spectator seating for 2,000; new restrooms and concessions; and the installation of championship lighting. Howard McCasland Field House The Field House is one of OU’s most historic buildings. Many OU alumni fondly recall the field house as the home of OU’s basketball program, which it was until Lloyd Noble Center opened in 1975. In 2005, the Field House underwent a $6 million facelift that included a complete interior renovation comprised of a resanded and repainted floor with four efficient practice courts and chair-back seating that offers fans more comfort. In addition, the entire facility was repainted and improvements were made to the HVAC system, sound system, lighting and scoreboards. The Sooners have also enjoyed renovations done to the training room as well as an upgrade to both the volleyball and wrestling locker rooms. Wrestling Practice Facility Connected to the McCasland Field House, the Athletics Department launched a $2.4 million project in 2008. The bulk of the construction will include a $1.3 million addition to the Port Robertson Wrestling Center. The facility serves as the practice venue for the Sooner wrestling team.

Mary Jane Noble Women’s Basketball Center In 1975, the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation of Ardmore made the first million-dollar gift in OU history with its contribution to OU’s campaign to build a multi-purpose arena. In 1999, the foundation made another gift to support the renovation of the original center, adding first-class matching facilities for the men’s and women’s basketball teams. The Lloyd Noble Center addition includes two new full-sized practice courts for the men’s and women’s basketball teams. Bob and Ann Coleman Men’s Basketball Center The nearly 63,000-square-feet Lloyd Noble Center addition offers a matched set of men’s and women’s facilities, including full-sized practice courts, new team and coaches’ locker rooms, training rooms and steam/spa/sauna rooms. Office facilities and conference rooms provide views of the practice courts as special features and a shared weight training facility was created. The Kerr-McGee Courtside Club gives fans a venue for special events. Sam Viersen Gymnastics Center A state-of-the-art 7,000 square foot addition and a complete overhaul of the existing Sam Viersen Gymnastics Center was finalized in the spring of 2010, ensuring that the home of Oklahoma Gymnastics remains one of the nation’s premier collegiate training facilities. Funded entirely by private donations without the use of any state or university appropriated funds, the project included a complete renovation of the current gym, locker rooms, sports medicine training rooms and the awards recognition room.

A UNIVERSITY TOWN WITH A CHAMPIONSHIP SPIRIT Norman has been 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 landrush 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 $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. Maintaining a progressive approach to the future while remembering its history, Norman continues to be a well-balanced community, proud to be the home of the University of Oklahoma.

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

Oklahoma City Oklahoma City, the capital of Oklahoma, is located just 18 miles from the Norman campus. It was the first city settled in the Land Run of 1889 because of its position as the center of the state. It is because of this central location that Oklahoma City has become known as the home of America’s Western heritage. Whether adventure, history, culture or sports, Oklahoma City offers a variety of attractions and activities different from any other place in the country. Oklahoma City was born on the afternoon of April 22, 1889, when the central portion of what is now Oklahoma was opened to settlement by presidential proclamation. Thousands crossed the borders of “unassigned lands” at the sound of gunfire at high noon. Never before or since has such a “run” occurred anywhere on the earth. By the time the dust had settled on that historic day, many people had staked their claim at “Oklahoma Station,” an area which was destined to become Oklahoma City, a leading city in America. In 1911, Oklahoma City officially became the capital after a statewide election moved the state seal from Guthrie.

professional sports teams and the host of the NCAA Women College Softball World Series and Big 12 Softball Championship. The Oklahoma RedHawks, 1996 American Association champions (then named the Oklahoma City 89ers), are the Triple-A baseball affiliate of the Texas Rangers. The team plays in the 13,066-seat AT&T Bricktown Ballpark, one of the plushest venues in all of minor league sports. The ballpark served as host to a 2004 NCAA baseball regional and the 2005, 2006, 2007 and 208 Big 12 Baseball Championships. Hockey mania runs rampant with the American Hockey League’s Oklahoma City Barons, affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Edmonton Oilers. In addition, the city has hosted numerous PGA and Senior PGA Tour events.

Tulsa Tulsa, the state’s second largest city, is located 100 miles to the northeast of Norman in the heart of Oklahoma’s Green Country. Ask people to describe Tulsa, and you’ll likely get many different answers. It was a city forever changed by the discovery of oil in 1901. It is home to art deco treasures and nationally renowned museums. Its African-American heritage left its mark, in both the business and music worlds. And it’s a city of nostalgia and special memories for countless Americans due to its location on historic Route 66. 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 America’s Castles. For great western art, check out the Gilcrease Museum, and music legends are commemorated at Oklahoma’s Jazz Hall of Fame. Other unique attractions worth a stop include the Elsing Museum, Ida Dennie Willis Museum of Miniatures, Dolls & Toys, Tulsa Air and Space Center and the Fenster Museum of Jewish Art.
