Women’s Rowing


ROWING 101 QUICK FACTS While most people have only begun to be aware of rowing in Oklahoma, it’s been around for longer than you might think. The first Oklahoma City rowing club was established in the 1970s. Both the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University have club crews, and the University of Tulsa has had a varsity women’s team since 1996. The Tulsa Rowing Club has been rowing since 1983 with both juniors and masters programs.


ROWING QUICK FACTS ROWING HISTORY Rowing was first introduced to central Oklahoma in the late seventies by Bob Stroud, founder and president of the Oklahoma City Rowing Club. Stroud and the early pioneers of Oklahoma rowing erected a boathouse on land between the North Canadian River and Lake Overholser. During the early eighties, the “Dust Bowl Regatta” was staged annually on the North Canadian River, attracting universities from throughout the Midwest. Olympic-level rowers have even competed in Oklahoma City where they were challenged by the Oklahoma wind during the 1989 U.S. Olympic Festival’s rowing event on Lake Overholser. In 1996, the framework for a new community rowing organization began to develop. That spring, former Oklahoma State University rowers Mike and Tempe Knopp began working to help energize the sport in Oklahoma City. After assisting Bob Stroud in renovating the “Stroud House” boathouse, recruitment began and soon rowers could be seen on the North Canadian River. Driven by the vision to build a program that could put Oklahoma City on the map as home to a community rowing organization as diverse and competitive as any found on the east and west coasts, local rowers Jan Robb, Robert Wood, Tempe Knopp, Kevin Casey, Jackie Hubbard, Diane Taylor, and Mike Knopp worked together to form a new community-based organization: the Oklahoma Association for Rowing (OAR). With the development of OAR came the start of a juniors program that helped several rowers earn collegiate athletic scholarships and was the foundation for one young rower, Carly York, who earned a spot on the United States Junior National Team. A strong masters program brought adults together to row for recreation and competitively, winning medals at races across the region. OAR volunteers also developed an at-risk youth program to share rowing’s lessons of teamwork and leadership with disadvantaged children.

Women’s Rowing


ROWING TERMONOLOGY Backsplash

Half Pressure

The minor splash that can happen when the rower’s oar blade enters the water at a less than optimum angle; also a sign of inefficient blade work getting other rowers wet.

When rowers are rowing at half pressure, the are only pulling half-strength.

Blade

Refers to the task when rowers square their oar blades in the water to bring the boat to a stop as quickly as possible.

The flat surface of the oar, usually painted in team colors. Approximately seven inches across and 24 to 30 inches wide.

Bow & Bowball The bow is the front of the boat and the part that crosses the finish line first. Since rowers are seated backward, the bow of the boat is behind them. Look for the ball on the tip of the bow.

Catch One of the three distinct rowing stroke phrases, the “catch” is the point when a rower’s blade enters the water.

Check The slight amount of hesitation you’ll see in the boat as it’s being rowed. The rowers’ forward slide during the recovery interrupts the momentum of the boat. The rowers’ challenge is to slide forward with such control that the boat never checks.

Coxswain Often abbreviated “cox,” this member of the crew sits in a small seat either in the bow or the stern while steering the shell and coaching the rowers during a race.

Crab The term rowers use when the oar blade gets “caught” in the water. It is caused by a momentary flaw in oar technique and is very common. It may be minor, allowing the rower to quickly recover, or it may be so forceful that the rower is ejected from the boat. Often, crews must cease rowing for the rower to regain control of the oar.

Hold Water

Missing Water A rower’s oar blade isn’t set into the water at an appropriate depth and either partially or completely misses the water.

Oarlock A u-shaped swivel mounted at the end of the rigger that holds the oar in position and serves as the pivot point for the oar.

Port The left side of the boat when facing the bow. Since rowers are seated facing backward, port is on the rower’s right.

Power 10 When the coxswain calls a Power 10, rowers are to increase the pressure of their stroke, i.e. they pull harder.

Quad (4x) A four-person sculling shell (each person has two oars). It’s not to be confused with a “four” which refers to a four-person sweep boat (each person has one oar).

Stroke Rate The number of strokes per minute.

Recovery

Deck

The third phrase of the rowing stroke referring to the point in which the rower holds the oar blades out of the water as they slide forward to the catch.

The deck of the boat includes the covered portion of the bow and stern.

Rigger

Double (2x)

The metal bracing attached to the side of the boat that holds the oarlock. The oar passes through the oarlock which acts as a pivot point.

A two-person sculling shell (each person has two oars). A pair refers to a two-person sweep boat (each person has one oar).

Drive One of the three distinct rowing stroke phrases, the “drive” is the point when the rower drives back with his/her legs and pulls the oar through the water, propelling the shell forward.

Scull The proper term for a sculling oar; commonly used as a noun to refer to a boat or a verb referring to the act of rowing with two oar.

Seat

Eight

The rowers sit on a seat which slides along a rail and are identified by the seat they occupy.

An eight-person sweep boat (each person has one oar). The eight is the fastest boat on the water and is usually the premiere event at most regattas.

Shell

Feathering

Single (1x)

The position of the oar blades as they are turned parallel to the face of the water to cut down on wind resistance during the recover portion of the rowing stroke. Feathering too soon, before the blade has cleared the water, can result in a crab.

A single person in a sculling shell (two oars).

Finish

Starboard

The final part of the rower’s stroke where the blade comes out of the water; also refers to the end of a race, or to the way in which a crew completes a race.

The right side of the boat when facing the bow. Since rowers are seated facing backward, starboard is on the rower’s left.

Footstretcher

Stern

An adjustable bracket in the bottom of the rowing shell. Shoes are attached to the bracket giving the rower a way to secure his/her feet while rowing.

The back end of the boat.

Four A four-person sweep boat (each person has one oar).

Can refer to one cycle of the oar or the rower sitting nearest the stern who sets the cadence for the boat; all the other rowers follow his or her lead.

Gunwale (Gunnel)

Sweep Rowing

The top edge of the shell around the cockpit - the area where the rowers sit. The riggers are secured to the gunwale with bolts.

Rowing where each rower has one oar.

Another name for a rowing or sculling boat.

Skeg Short fin on the bottom of the shell that helps it maintain course.

Stroke

Way Enough Command to stop rowing.

2012 Media Guide 6


ROWING FACTS

THE EVENTS Events are divided into two disciplines: sweep rowing and sculling. Most collegiate programs row only sweep events, including eights, fours, and pairs. In sweep rowing, each athlete has one oar, and is designated as either a port or a starboard. Sweep boats typically carry a coxswain (pronounced cox-n) to steer and call commands to the crew. In sculling events include the single, double and quad. Sculling boats do not carry a coxswain. The eight is the fastest boat on the water. Athletes are identified by their seat in the boat. The athlete closest to the bow is seat No. 1 (or bow). The person in front of the bow is No. 2, then No. 3, No. 4, No. 5, No. 6, No. 7 and No. 8, a.k.a. the stroke. The stroke of the boat must be a strong rower with excellent technique, since the stroke sets the rhythm and number of strokes per minute the rest of the crew must follow. THE RACE All events in the spring “sprint” season are 2,000 meters, or approximately 1.25 miles. The race course is divided into six lanes and each 500-meter section is marked with buoys. The race begins with all boats aligned at the start in the lanes they’ve been assigned. Individuals in each lane hold the stern of each boat steady while an official, known as the aligner, ensures that each boat is even with the others and squarely facing the course. Each crew is allowed one false start; two means disqualification. If within the first 100 meters there is legitimate equipment breakage (e.g., an oar snaps in two), the race will be stopped and restarted with repaired equipment. The stroke rate (the number of rowing strokes per minute that a crew is taking ) is high at the start - maybe 45 to even 50 for an eight. Then, the crew will “settle” or shift into the body of the race and drop the rating down to approximately 38-40 for an eight strokes per minute. There may be pre-determined “moves” in a crew’s race plan or a crew may challenge or respond to an opponent’s move by elevating the stroke rating for a defined number of strokes. Typically, crews will sprint in the last 250 meters, bringing the stroke rating up again to finish the race. Unlike canoe/kayak competitions, rowers are allowed to leave their lanes without penalty, so long as they do not interfere with anyone else’s opportunity to win. An official follows the crews to ensure safety and fairness. RACE WATCHING The crew that’s making it look easy is most likely the one doing the best job. While you’re watching, look for continuous, fluid motion of the rowers. The rowing motion shouldn’t have a discernible end or beginning.

The most consistent speed. Shells don’t move like a car - they’re slowest at the catch, quickest at the release. The good crews time the catch at just the right moment to maintain the speed of the shell. Rowing looks graceful, elegant and sometimes effortless when it’s done well. Don’t be fooled. Rowers haven’t been called the world’s most physically-fit athletes for nothing. A 2,000-meter rowing race demands virtually everything a human being can physically bring to an athletic competition - aerobic ability, technical talent, exceptional mental discipline, ability to utilize oxygen efficiently and in huge amounts, balance, pain tolerance, and the ability to continue to work when the body is demanding that you stop. Race times can vary considerably depending upon the course and weather conditions. Tailwinds will improve times, while headwinds and crosswinds will hamper them. If a crew “catches a crab,” it means the oarblade has entered the water at an angle instead of perpendicularly. The oarblade gets caught under the surface and will slow or even stop a shell. A “Power 10” is a call by the coxswain for 10 of the crew’s best, most powerful strokes. Good coxswains read the course to know how many strokes remain for their crew to count down to the finish. Crews are identified by their oarblade design. The USA blades are red on top and blue on the bottom, with a white triangle at the tip. It doesn’t matter whether you win an Olympic medal or don’t make the finals- each crew still carries their boat back to the rack. Coxswains from first-place boats worldwide are thrown into the water by their crews. Coxswains don’t now and probably never did yell “stroke! stroke!” Similar to a jockey, their job is to implement the coach’s strategy during the race, in addition to steering and letting the rowers know where they stand in the race and what they need to do to win.

Synchronization. Rowers strive for perfect synchronization in the boat. Clean catches of the oarblade. If you see a lot of splash, the oarblades aren’t entering the water correctly. The catch should happen at the end of the recovery, when the hands are as far ahead of the rower as possible. Rowers who uncoil before they drop the oarblades are sacrificing speed and not getting a complete drive. Even oarblade feathering. When the blades are brought out of the water, they should all move horizontally close to the water and at the same height. It’s not easy, especially if the water is rough.

Oklahoma City’s BOATHOUSES Rowing is becoming a popular sport in Oklahoma with the addition of women’s rowing at OU and the new home of the USRowing High Performance Center. USRowing has partnered with the Oklahoma City Boathouse Foundation and Oklahoma City University to launch the USRowing National High Performance Center on the Oklahoma River. The National High Performance Center is the first of its kind for USRowing. The center focuses on training the next generation of world-class rowers with an emphasis on athletes under 23 years of age. Oklahoma City also will be developed as a national center for coaching education for USRowing.

Chesapeake Boathouse

The High Performance Center incorporates all aspects of elite athlete training with intensive coaching, sports nutrition, strength and cardiovascular conditioning, sports psychology and sports medicine, including sport-specific biometrics, injury prevention and rehabilitation. In addition to the Under-23 program, the High Performance Center will host senior and junior national team selection camps, elite training camps and training opportunities for international athletes. The OU Rowing team currently trains at the Exchange Boathouse located on the river west of Chesapeake.

The High Performance Center began operations in November 2009 at the Chesapeake Boathouse and is headquartered in the new Devon Boathouse, which opened in October 2010. High Performance Center programming will be incorporated throughout all of the new boathouses slated for construction on the Oklahoma River. The new OU boathouse, currently in the planning stages, will be built near the National Training Center and Sooner rowers will continue to train in facilities shared by the future national team athletes. The exposure to the best in the country will provide limitless opportunities for the OU rowers. The USRowing High Performance Center includes a year-round residency program for pre-elite male and female athletes. The program also works with the Oklahoma City business community to provide job and internship opportunities for athletes. The Under-23 program began athletes in residence in August 2009 with 40 on the roster, and has continued to add rowers.

Exchange Boathouse


FACILITY INFORMATION A commitment to excellence like the one made by the University of Oklahoma Athletics Department requires a promise to provide the best facilities possible for each of its student-athletes. For the Sooner rowing program, those facilities stretch from an on-campus workout facility to the rowing practice facility on the Oklahoma River in downtown Oklahoma City to the plans to build a state-of-the art OU boathouse on the river. In Norman, Sooner rowers have access to their own erg room on campus. When weather conditions or schedules require workout time away from the river, the on-campus erg room helps the student-athletes balance practice, classroom and study time while providing for a quality off-the-water workout. The erg room, which is located at the Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, is located within the same facility as the Henry J. Freede Sports Medicine Facility, the Siegfried Family Strength and Conditioning Facility and the Prentice Gautt Student-Athletic Academic Center. The complex of facilities gives the Sooner rowers a one-stop option for creating excellence in competition and the classroom.

Future Plans

FOR A GROWING PROGRAM

In 2007, Oklahoma City business leader Aubrey McClendon made the lead gift of $1 million toward the construction of a $5 million boathouse to be constructed along the banks of the Oklahoma River in the Bricktown district of Oklahoma City. The facility is being designed by the visionary Oklahoma City architect Rand Elliot, of Elliot and Associates. OU’s new boathouse will feature three boat bays, a repair bay, erg room, team locker room, event space, sports medicine facilities and coaches offices. The boathouse will be built to the east of the Chesapeake Boathouse on the north shore near Interstate 35. The Sooners will occupy the Chesapeake and Exchange Boathouses until OU’s new facility is completed. Additionally, there are plans on the drawing board for a complete on-campus facility that will include a rowing tank, erg room, locker rooms, sports medicine, hydrotherapy, equipment room, team room, and a coach’s office.

SOONER TRADITION SOONER TRADITIONS

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:

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. 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.

2012 Media Guide 22

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. 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. 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).


The City of NORMAN HOME OF THE SOONERS

Norman is an ever-changing city of nearly 90,000 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 of serenity of a small close-knit community. Since the Oklahoma land run 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.


NORMAN AND OKLAHOMA CITY

SPIRIT OF CHAMPIONS

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.

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.

A SPORTS FANATIC’S PARADISE

Oklahoma City has become a haven for exciting sports action. It is home of the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder, two minor league sports teams and the host of the NCAA Women College Softball World Series and Big 12 Baseball and Softball Championships. The Oklahoma City RedHawks, 1996 American Association champions (then named the Oklahoma City 89ers), are the Triple-A baseball affiliate of the Houston Astros. The team plays in the 13,066-seat RedHawks Field at Bricktown, one of the most respected venues of all minor league sports. The ballpark served as a host to a 2004 NCAA baseball regional and the 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 Big 12 Baseball Championship. The Oklahoma City Barons are in their second seasonof play. The American Hockey League squad is the top minor league affiliate of the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers. In addition, the city has hosted numerous PGA and Senior PGA Tour events.

THUNDER UP

The Oklahoma City Thunder stands as the city’s staple sports symbol. The Thunder, who moved to Oklahoma City in 2008, have already claimed two playoff appearances and one division title. Oklahoma City reached the Western Conference Finals in 2011 where they fell to the NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks. The Thunder were led by two-time league scoring leader Kevin Durant. The Thunder’s home venue, Chesapeak Energy Arena, is considered one of the top atmosphere’s to catch an NBA game.


Making an impact in THE COMMUNITY MAKING COMMUNITY IMPACT

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 student-athletes 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.” The University of Oklahoma men’s golf program has held an annual Clubs for Kids event in early May at

the Lakeview Golf Course in Ardmore, Okla. Providing clubs and instruction, the event allows more than 1,000 southeastern Oklahoma youth an opportunity to interact with the OU golf team and coaches. 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, Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity and the Children’s Miracle Network, 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: Women’s basketball players and coaches visited the Children’s Hospital in Oklahoma City and participated in the Sooner Big Sis Program, an event in which each student-athlete selects a Norman elementary school class and visits the class weekly for an hour. The Oklahoma baseball team annually attends Willow Springs Boys Ranch to spend time with children and host a barbeque, in addition to visiting the “Miracle League” in Edmond and working with children at local elementary schools. The OU men’s gymnastics team participated in Adopt-An-Angel, Safe Trick-Or-Treat and volunteered at various elementary schools in the Norman area. The team earned the Volunteer of the Year award by the Norman United Way and Junior League of Norman. for its work at Norman’s Cleveland Elementary School.


COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT The OU Athletics Department participated in “Think if You Drink,” a community campaign to help promote safe and responsible drinking among student-athletes and students on campus.

Sooner football players spent more than 300 hours involved in various community projects during the course of the year including the Clinic for Kids, visiting elementary schools and conducting the annual food drive.

The football program participated in Special Spectators for children with terminal illnesses by visiting and playing with the children.

OU student-athletes hosted Safe Trick-or-Treat and provided candy, games and safe entertainment for hundreds of local children and their families at the Lloyd Noble Center.

OU student-athletes and coaches made contact with more than 1,000 Norman Public Schools students in 20 schools as visiting readers, tutors, mentors and other special events including speaking engagements. The OU women’s volleyball team visited Santa Fe High School, mentored children during lunch at Norman Lutheran Church, led FCA at Alcott Middle School, refereed and taught children’s volleyball for Jumping Juniors and the Homeschool Association and spoke to the young adults at Tulsa High School. Oklahoma men’s basketball has been involved with community organizations including the American Cancer Society, the American Lung Association, Boys and Girls Clubs, Boy Scouts of America, Citizens Caring for Children, Children’s Miracle Network, Food and Shelter for Friends, Sooner Reading Program, the Oklahoma Blood Institute, the Oklahoma Committee to Prevent Child Abuse and Special Olympics, among others. Bridge Builders, the African American Student-Athlete Network, organized student outreach programs at Marcus Garvey Leadership Charter School and Moon Middle School helping to impart ideas and strategies to young people that will help them be successful in sports as well as life. Oklahoma women’s basketball players supported the Special Olympics in Norman and Noble. The players were honorary hug givers and cheerleaders, encouraging Oklahoma’s special stars. The Sooners also assisted the United Way in its Meals on Wheels program. OU delivered, sacked and decorated bags that contained food items for emergency use during the winter months.

More than 450 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. The football, basketball, baseball, and gymnastics teams were involved with Special Spectators, a national organization that invites seriously ill children to attend a sporting event and meet the players and coaches. The Sooners hosted more than 20 children from several Oklahoma City hospitals who attended sporting events on the OU campus. OU participated in the Adopt-an-Angel Toy Drive in which toys and clothing were given by student–athletes and department staff to the Salvation Army, Women’s Resource Center and individuals in need during the holiday season. The women’s rowing squad participated in the campus-wide blood drive with the American Red Cross. There are over 100 donors whose donations will help save the lives of more than 500 people. Oklahoma rowing also volunteers at Habitat for Humanity regularly. The Sooner rowers were awarded the 2011 Champs/Life Skills award for their active participation in the Norman community.

Women’s Rowing


Meet your Oklahoma ROWING TEAM WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT YOUR ROWING SQUAD? College rowing is unique in that it consists of two separate categories for competition: varsity and novice. Freshman and walk-on athletes make up the novice squad. This group competes against other novice teams. Novice rowers spend their first year learning the fundamentals of rowing and competing for the first time. Recruited freshmen, upper classmen and more experienced athletes compete on the varsity team. Many novice team members become varsity rowers in their second or sophomore season of rowing. Varsity athletes compete against other varsity teams. Regional and national rankings as well as NCAA qualification are based only on team performance in varsity events.

Junior Carly Schueler is the varsity coxsawin for Oklahoma rowing. She led her team to three first place finishes this fall at the Head of the Colorado and the Autumn rowing Festival in Newport, California.

COMING TO OU... “Building a program from the ground up at a premier Division I institution is a unique opportunity. To be a part of an athletics department with such a rich tradition of excellence is an incredible experience. Once I stepped on campus, I knew I wanted to be a Sooner.”

PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY “Our primary goal is to establish the expectations and culture that will guide us in future years as we strive to develop a winning tradition in our sport. We hope to attract the most talented prospects in the country and abroad so that we can quickly become a national powerhouse in rowing.”

COACHING STYLE “My coaching idol is the legendary John Wooden. I’ve had a lot of great coaches in my time, and I think I’ve learned something from each of them. My own style is pretty laid back, but I’m very competitive. I do my best to draw that competitive nature out in the student-athletes I coach. I believe balance is the key to success, and I see it as my responsibility to educate my teams on the importance of excelling in all areas of their lives-in the classroom, on the water and in their personal lives. I want them to be prepared and ready for success at all times.”

ADMINSTRATION

DAVID L. BOREN UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT

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.

David L. Boren, who has served Oklahoma as governor and U.S. senator, being 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

2012 Media Guide 86

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 Joe C. and Carole Kerr McClendon 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


ADMINSTRATION studies program, the Artist-in-Residence Program, the International Programs Center, and the Faculty-inResidence 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 $1.9 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 $67 million National Weather Center on OU’s Norman campus, the $90 million OU Cancer Institute on OU’s Health Sciences Center campus in Oklahoma City and the $35 million OU-Tulsa Schusterman Center Clinic .

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 557 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, 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 DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

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”

Principle Centered Leader... Visionary ....Passionate Advocate for Student-Athletes ... Establishes Standards of Excellence & Cultural Values ... Builder of Championship Programs. Excellence is a word that is often overused yet, when The University of Oklahoma is mentioned with the word excellence, the meaning comes through. From one of the best universities in the nation to a department of intercollegiate athletics that is second to none, excellence is the norm. As successful at the last 10 years have been, on campus and in competition, a new standard has been set and leading that effort is Joe Castiglione, the Sooner AD since 1998. Castiglione’s Sooner team has created a place where competitive dreams come true and academic goals are the expectations, not the exceptions. 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. With the support of OU President David L. Boren and OU’s seven-member Board of Regents and Castiglione’s leadership, the OU athletics department represents a climate that creates lofty goals, high standards and a commitment to ethical behavior that is second to none.

2012 Media Guide 88

Since arriving at OU in 1998 after an outstanding administrative career at Missouri, Castiglione has seen the Sooners finish in the top 30 of the Learfield Director’s Cup in 10 of the last 12 years. OU finished 12th after the 2009-10 academic year, a position that marked an all-time best performance in the annual ranking of programs that succeed across the board. 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 12 years. 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. 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. 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 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 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 campaign ended in November of 2003 with more than $125 million raised. The figure has grown to more than $220 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


ADMINSTRATION 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 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 and the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame Board of Directors. He served two previous terms and is the current 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. A 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 served his third term as OU’s campus co-chair this past year, 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.

History and Records OF OKLAHOMA ROWING A GROWING PROGRAM Oklahoma rowing began in August of 2008. That year, the sport was officially added, and current coach Leeanne Crain was named the first head coach of the program. During the first season, the squads saw success with both the novice eight and varsity four claiming first place in their respective events at the 2009 Big 12 championships. Since its beginning, rowing has claimed second at the Big 12 Championship in 2010 and 2011. The 2011 spring squad also claimed third place overall at the Conference USA Championship behind Tennessee, and the varsity eight was invited to the Windermere cup for the first time in Oklahoma Rowing history. The team also ended their fall 2011 season by winning the Newport Autumn Rowing Festival in Newport, Calif.
