2012 SEASON PREVIEW

oklahoma preview

A NEW ERA IN SOONER SOCCER BEGINS IN 2012 Head coach Matt Potter brings impressive résumé to Norman via Pullman, Wash. and Mere, England. Every team depends on its experience when starting a new season and the 2012 Sooners are no different. Eight starters are back from last year’s campaign, but the key when looking at the squad’s experience may rest in the fact that 12 players also return from the 2010 postseason run. The 2010 season saw OU come seconds away from the program’s first Big 12 Championship as it fell in penalty kicks to nationally ranked Oklahoma State. The Sooners also made their second NCAA tournament appearance in 2010, and that success, coupled with a productive spring just months ago, is something first-year head coach Matt Potter is drawing from. “Without a question, that experience is priceless,” said Potter. “Not only that, you have a lot of talent in that group that forms the backbone of our squad. We are looking to their example and their leadership as we try to transition to our way of doing things. That group is going to be a key to our success moving forward.” In 2012, OU will look to a pair of three-year starters in goalkeeper Kelsey Devonshire and midfielder Katharine Nutman to lead the charge. The Sooners (7-13 overall, 2-6 Big 12) finished the 2011 season with its second straight appearance in the Big 12 Championship, a first since the 2005 and 2006 seasons. That experience shined during the spring slate, as the Sooners completed an undefeated four-game schedule that included wins over Arkansas and Oral Roberts.

Coach Potter and the Sooners are not looking to suffer through a transition season before competing for a Big 12 Championship and returning to the NCAA Tournament. “I think the key to our success is to embrace the vision of this program and continue to build relationships,” said Potter. “Everything else, soccer wise, will take care of itself if we continue to invest in each other. We are looking to build off the hard work from those that have been here prior to us. “My expectations for the season are obviously, No. 1, to make the NCAA tournament. That is going to be a goal of ours every year. I don’t see why this year we should rebuild, retool or whatever you want to call it. I think we have the talent and as long as we, as coaches, motivate them and we keep improving, I don’t see why we can’t accomplish that goal.“ Those goals will have to be achieved through a challenging schedule that includes eight games against seven teams that advanced to the NCAA Championship, including two games with Oklahoma State, which advanced to the Elite Eight and finished 22-2-2 overall. OU meets OSU in a non-conference game in Norman on Sept. 7 and returns the trip for the Big 12 Conference game on Sept. 30. It marks the third straight year that the Bedlam Soccer Series will be played in the regular season on both home fields.

“The players left in a good place, physically, with a clear understanding of the expectation to build on that good work through the summer,” said Potter.“They have certainly shown the potential and appetite to want to succeed. It’s certainly an exciting time for Sooner soccer as we look to begin the journey of establishing ourselves as one of the nation’s elite programs.”

The remaining 2012 opponents from last year’s tournament include Baylor (15-43), Kansas (11-9-1), LSU (13-7-1), Texas (11-9-1), West Virginia (17-5) and Virginia Tech (14-8-1).

“My expectations for the season are obviously, No. 1, to make the NCAA tournament. I don’t see why this year we should have to rebuild, retool, or whatever you want to call it.” - Coach Potter.

The 2012 slate consists of 19 regular season games, including 10 contests at one of the premier collegiate soccer facilities in the nation, John Crain Field at the OU Soccer Complex.

6 - 2012 SOCCER MEDIA GUIDE

“As competitors, you are always looking to challenge yourself,” said Potter. “Across the board, we play against several teams that have NCAA pedigree and potential.”

OU plays one exhibition game on Aug. 11 against Tulsa at home before opening the regular season in Norman against Nebraska on Friday, Aug. 17.


The game with the Huskers, the first meeting since 2010, is the first of four home games to begin the regular season slate. OU will also host LSU, Nicholls State and Vanderbilt. The Sooners also welcome ORU on Sept. 9 in non-conference action. The non-conference slate will prepare the Sooners for the Big 12 schedule, including some tough road games at UNLV, Northern Arizona, Rice, SMU and Virginia Tech. “I think without question it prepares us for conference play, which both players and coaches are looking forward to,” added Potter.“The Big 12, historically, is a competitive conference with great teams and great coaches.”

A talented group returns from the 201 0 team that lost in penalty kicks of the Big 12 Championship gam e, including three-year starters Kelsey Devonshire (GK) and Katharine Nutman (MF).

BIG 12 SOCCER IN SAN ANTONIO The 2012 season marks the 16th consecutive year that the University of Texas and San Antonio Sports Foundation will co-host the Big 12 Championship (Oct. 31-Nov. 4) at Blossom Soccer Stadium in San Antonio, Texas. The top eight teams will compete in a single-elimination tournament to determine the conference’s champion and the automatic bid to the 2012 NCAA Tournament.

Big 12 play kicks off at home on Friday, Sept. 21 against Baylor and the Sooners will complete the weekend on Sept. 23 with Red River rival Texas. Oklahoma will also host Kansas (Oct. 12) and new Big 12 rival TCU (Oct. 14) in league play.

The 64-team field in the NCAA Championship start things off on Nov. 9 and the tourney concludes on Dec. 2 at the Women’s College Cup in San Diego, Calif.

The challenges on the road include Texas Tech (Sept. 28), Oklahoma State (Sept. 30), West Virginia (Oct. 19) and Iowa State (Oct. 26).

Missouri, 2008), Nebraska (1996, 1998-2000 and 2002), Oklahoma State (2003,2009-10), Texas (2006-2007) and Texas A&M (1997, 2001, 2004-2005, 2011) are the only teams to have captured the conference postseason championship. Texas A&M topped Oklahoma State in last year’s title game.

GOALKEEPERS Returning: Kelsey Devonshire (Sr.) Incoming: Kassidie Stade (Fr.) and Libbie Turrentine (Fr.) Kelsey Devonshire returns to start her fourth consecutive season and does so ranked third on OU’s all-time shutout list with 14 career blankings.

Devonshire is joined by two talented newcomers in the net in Kassidie Stade and Libbie Turrentine. Stade hails from California and brings size to the position at 5-10 while Turrentine reigns from Plano, Texas and the successful Sting Soccer Club. Potter on keepers: “Kelsey is a senior and we are obviously looking for her to show and model great practice, great leadership and great presence. She is capable of all three and with two freshmen goalkeepers coming in, that is going to be important that she takes on that challenge. There is no question that she can perform in games and has done it over the last three years. We are hoping she has a season to remember.”

DEFENSE Returning: Alison Farrell (Sr.), Molly Richey (RS-So.), Brianna Turang (Sr.), Kathryn Watson (Jr.), and Carrie Whigham (Jr.) Incoming: Jade Dapaah (Fr.), Kenzie Sublett (Fr.) and Jordan Voth (Fr.) Throughout four games in the spring, the Sooner defense allowed just one goal and blanked Arkansas, Oral Roberts and SMU. The coaching staff is hoping that group can carry over that same success into the fall slate to help forget the defensive struggles from past years.

Potter on the defense: “Across the back line, coming into the season, is probably where we have the least depth. But we also have great potential and versatility. Molly Richey, Kater Watson and Aly Farrell all had good springs. Sam Howell played more as a fullback with an attacking mindset and she played well. “Jade Dapaah is a wonderful talent that we hope can blossom and she has proven her ability on the club level. We also have Brianna Turang back from softball and her athleticism is something everyone is clearly aware of. And if we can get Carrie (Whigham) and her leadership on the back line back from injury, we have a core group that will help protect Kelsey in goal.”

Depending on the status of junior Carrie Whigham, who sat out a majority of the 2011 campaign with concussion-like symptoms, the defense could provide coach Potter and company with a solid back line. During Whigham’s freshman year, the OU defense posted seven shutouts, fourth in the Big 12, but last season, the Sooners only managed three as multiple injuries challenged the depth of the back line. Despite Whigham’s status, the Sooners still have experience with Alison Farrell, Molly Richey, Brianna Turang and Kathryn Watson. The staff will also look to newcomers Jade Dapaah, Kenzie Sublett and Jordan Voth to give OU the depth it lacked a year ago when it ranked eighth in the league in goals allowed. 8 - 2012 SOCCER MEDIA GUIDE

MIDFIELD

FORWARDS

Returning: Emily Bowman (So.), Zoe Dickson (Jr.), Kali Fournier (Sr.), Abby Hodgen (So.), Samantha Howell (Jr.) and Katharine Nutman (Sr.) Incoming: Katie Marcheso (Fr.) and Madison Smith (Fr.).

Returning: Bailey Boulware (Jr.), Annalisa Hall (Jr.), Jessica Johnson (Sr.), Caitlin Mooney (Sr.), Amy Petrikin (Jr.) and Kelly Price (So.) Incoming: Devin Barrett (Fr.), Renae Cuellar (Sr.) and Cassidy Nangle (Fr.).

Arguably, the most experienced and talented group for the Sooners is the midfield as juniors Zoe Dickson, Samantha Howell and seniors Kali Fournier and Katharine Nutman anchor the position.

OU’s top two returning goal scorers return in 2012 as Caitlin Mooney and Amy Petrikin tied for that honor last season with six apiece. In addition, Annalisa Hall was solid in limited action with three scores in the final six games. Hall missed the first seven games of the year due to injury, but finished the year strong with goals against Iowa State, Missouri and Kansas.

In addition to the four upper classmen, sophomores Emily Bowman and Abby Hodgen both saw significant time as true freshmen a year ago. Joining the experienced midfield in 2012 will be freshmen Katie Marcheso and Madison Smith from Littleton, Colo., and Edmond, Okla., respectively. Potter on the midfielders: “I think the strength of our team is in our midfield and our attacking. As we went through the spring, we were able to identify the technical players and the players disciplined to play roles. “I was very pleased with the way Kat (Katharine Nutman), Emily (Bowman) and Kali (Fournier) shared the workload and the discipline to play in a holding role. Our freedom to attack and the personalities of Zoe (Dickson) and Abby (Hodgen) were very creative and fun to watch.”

Hall’s late-season emergence carried over into the spring exhibition slate as she led all Sooners with three goals in the four games played. That included an impressive two-goal game as OU topped visiting Arkansas 2-0. Returners Bailey Boulware, Jessica Johnson and Kelly Price, along with newcomers Devin Barrett, Renae Cuellar and Cassidy Nangle, give the coaching staff some versatility in the attack. Cuellar, a senior, transfers over from Arizona where she tallied 17 career goals. She also brings an impressive international resume to Norman. Cuellar played with Mexico’s U-20 Women’s World Cup Team in 2010 and was an alternate for the 2011 National Team in the 2011 FIFA World Cup held in Germany. Potter on the forwards: “No one is going to question our front line, which is highlighted by the ability of Caitlin Mooney and the energy of Amy Petrikin. And now we had Annalisa to that and Renae, with her pedigree, it gives us a very good nucleus on offense that can go on to do good things.” SOONERSPORTS.COM - 9

THE BIG 12 CONFERENCE The new Big 12 ushers in its 17th year by welcoming a new commissioner and two new members as it continues to promote the strength and success of one of the nation’s premier athletic conferences. Bob Bowlsby was named the Conference’s fourth commissioner on May 4, 2012 after spending the previous six years as director of athletics at Stanford University. TCU and West Virginia became the Big 12’s first additions since inception, joining Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and Texas Tech. With 10 members, the Big 12 will remain as the only major conference in the nation to determine its champions in all sports directly on the field of play. The Conference’s hard work ethic and strong values have translated to enormous success in its first 16 years. Since it began competition in 1996-97, the league can boast of 47 NCAA team titles and 517 individual national championships. The trophy case added more hardware last year, including Baylor’s second national championship in women’s basketball, as well as the Hunter Seat title for BU in equestrian. In addition, Texas men’s golf claimed the national crown. Several other teams also made strong national showings. The 2011 season marked the sixth straight in which Big 12 volleyball represented with at least three teams in the NCAA Regional Semifinal field. Texas has made six consecutive appearances. The Big 12 finished first in NCAA Volleyball Conference RPI for the first time in its history. In addition to winning its second consecutive national title, Big 12 women’s basketball claimed the top position in conference RPI for the fifth consecutive season. Kansas men’s basketball advanced to the national title game and made its fourth Final Four appearance since 2002. Oklahoma finished second at the College World Series in softball. Overall in 2011-12, five of the eight sports that hold NCAA Championships where the Big 12 sponsored full round-robin competition had a school competing among the final eight teams or beyond. The individual honors also continued with national coaches of the year in football (Kansas State’s Bill Snyder and Oklahoma State’s Mike Gundy), women’s basketball (Baylor’s Kim Mulkey) and men’s basketball (Kansas’ Bill Self). In addition, Texas’ Matt Scoggin was named the CSCAA Diving Coach of the Year. Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III won the league’s fifth Heisman Trophy – the most of any conference since 1998. Oklahoma pitcher Keilani Ricketts was selected the 2012 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year. Baylor center Brittney Griner garnered consensus national player of the year honors in women’s basketball in addition to receiving the prestigious Honda Cup as the collegiate woman athlete of the year. The Conference has had 13 athletes earn major individual awards in football in the past three campaigns. Also in the fall, Haley Eckerman of Texas was tabbed the American Volleyball Coaches Association’s Freshman of the Year. Overall, more than 1,400 student-athletes have earned All-America recognition in the past five years alone. Through its first 16 years, the Big 12 has claimed a team national championship in 16 of the sports it sponsors. The Conference ranks second with seven appearances in the BCS National Championship Game and leads the country with 95 football consensus All-America selections. League squads have combined to lead the nation in women’s basketball attendance each of the last 13 years and the Big 12 is the only conference to surpass the one-million mark in season attendance – doing so six times. In men’s basketball, the league has had two teams in the regional finals in four of the past five seasons. No other conference has had multiple Elite Eight teams in a season as much during that span. During the last eight years a total of 26 NCAA trophies have been hoisted by Big 12 institutions, with at least one national crown won in all but one year for the Conference, including 15 consecutive seasons. The Big 12 and its member institutions are committed to a competitive environment where sportsmanship and fair play take center stage. Whether on the field, in the classroom, or within the community, the student-athletes, administrators, coaches and

game officials of the Big 12 support the highest ideals in sportsmanship. National academic accolades have always been strong in the Big 12. Danielle Robinson (Oklahoma) and Sam Acho (Texas) were selected to receive Today’s Top VIII Awards – one of the NCAA’s top honors. It recognizes student-athletes who completed their athletic eligibility during 2010-11 for success on the fields and courts, in the classroom and in the community. In 2011-12, two student-athletes were recipients of the NCAA Elite 89 Award. That honor showcases individuals who have reached the pinnacle of competition at the national championship level, while also achieving the highest academic standard among their peers. In its short history, the Big 12 has also had over 500 Academic All-America recipients, averaging more than 30 each season. Big 12 student-athletes have shown commitment to their studies by earning numerous individual academic recognitions. Nine times in the past eight years a league athlete has garnered the top academic honor for their respective sport. The Big 12 had plenty of success overall in the classroom the last three years, as the Conference boasted 74 student-athletes earning Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-America recognition through the spring of 2012. The Big 12 can take pride in other stories that combine on and off the field success. Patience Knight (Texas Tech) was the recipient of the Honda Inspiration Award in 2008, given to an outstanding female college athlete who overcomes adversity to excel in her sport. She was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in 2007, but rebounded to win AllAmerica honors at the 2008 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships. Oklahoma State women’s basketball was the inaugural recipient of the “Together We R” Team Award in 2012, recognizing programs that have strived to succeed in the face of adversity. Competitive excellence, scholarship and sportsmanship are all equal components of the Big 12 philosophy. All-Big 12 teams and Academic All-Big 12 squads are recognized for each sport at the end of their respective seasons. At the end of each academic year, the Conference honors its top male and female student-athletes with the Big 12 Athlete of the Year and Big 12 Sportsperson of the Year awards. Institutions can also nominate student-athletes for the prestigious Dr. Prentice Gautt Postgraduate Scholarships. A total of 293 scholars have received over $2 million in postgraduate financial aid through the first 16 years of the program. The Big 12 sponsors 23 sports. Men’s squads include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, indoor track & field, outdoor track & field, swimming & diving, tennis and wrestling. Women’s teams are fielded in basketball, cross country, equestrian, golf, gymnastics, indoor track & field, outdoor track & field, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis and volleyball. Big 12 institutions create a league that encompasses five states and nearly 37 million people. More than 4,200 student-athletes from across the United States and around the World compete annually in the sports sponsored by the Conference. The Conference conducts postseason championships for 20 of its 23 sports. Each championship helps to determine teams and/or individuals that will represent the Conference in national postseason competition. The winner of the Big 12 football regular season championship earns the league’s berth into the Bowl Championship Series. In its first 16 years, the Conference has distributed more than $1.6 billion to its member institutions. The conference office is headquartered in Irving, Texas. SOONERSPORTS.COM - 13

Throughout the past nine seasons, Potter established Washington State’s program into one of the Pac-12’s elite with a school record 88 wins (88-69-26 overall) at the helm, including five double-digit win seasons and three appearances in the NCAA tournament. “We are excited to have Matt join the Sooner family and believe he’ll be an outstanding leader for our current and future student athletes,” said Joe Castiglione, OU’s Vice President of Intercollegiate Athletics.“We’ve made a strong commitment to our soccer program, including facility upgrades, and Matt is anxious to capitalize on that commitment. “Matt also has demonstrated the ability to build support for his program and to increase community interest. We appreciate the emphasis he places on outreach and feel that the many soccer enthusiasts in our area will respond.” The Cougars advanced into the second round of the NCAA tournament in 2011 and 2009. Prior to his arrival, Washington State advanced to three NCAA tournaments since the program’s inception in 1989. “The energy, the sense of tradition, and the support both on and off the field makes this a great place to be.,” said Potter. “The programs at this great university speak of excellence and I appreciate the opportunity to work alongside coaches who are the best at what they do. Mr. Castiglione has an impressive vision for the soccer program and the athletic department and I look forward to being part of this positive environment.” Potter replaces Nicole Nelson, who resigned in November after four seasons. Potter inherits a Sooner team that was 7-13 in 2011 and returns nine starters. “I believe in the potential of the players, the soccer program and the opportunity to build on the work of the previous staff,” added Potter.“As a coach, I look forward to being in a position to compete both on and off the field with the resources, support and people that care in the growth of student athletes. This is something that is clear at the University of Oklahoma.”

While coaching 30 all-conference selections and seven players that have taken part of national team camps or competitions at Washington State, the program’s success in the classroom did not go unnoticed during Potter’s tenure. He has helped mentor 103 student-athletes that have earned academic all-conference accolades and Washington State received the NSCAA Team Academic Award in 2011, marking the seventh time the program earned the honor under Potter.


Potter took over the helm of the Cougars in July of 2003, just a few months after being named an assistant in February. Potter was 6-11-2 in his first season after taking over for Dan Tobias, who took the head coaching job at the University of Arizona in 2003. Following his debut season, Potter’s Cougar teams rattled off six straight winning seasons and the 2006 squad tied a program record with 10 shutouts. In the past five seasons on the field, Washington State enjoyed four campaigns with double-digit wins and a combined 54-37-14 record. The Cougars were also ranked in the top 25 polls in four of those seasons, including a school record eight straight weeks in 2009. Most recently, Washington State returned to the big dance in 2011 and advanced to the second round for the second time in the last three years. The Cougars posted a 12-7-4 overall record and a fourth-place finish in the Pac-12 with a program best six wins in conference play (6-3-2 mark). Four Cougars earned all-conference honors and two were named to the coaches’ association all-region team. The Cougars tied a program record for wins with 14 in 2009 after topping Villanova in the first round of the NCAA tournament. It marked the first back-to-back appearances in the postseason for Washington State. The 2009 club tied WSU’s highest finish in the Pac-10 standings (third) with a 5-2-2 mark, finished the year ranked No. 18 in the nation, and set or tied 22 school records in the process.

In 2008, Potter and the Cougars’ appearance in the NCAA tournament marked the fourth in program in history and first since 2002. Prior to his stint in Pullman, Wa., Potter was the head coach for the women’s team at Scottsdale Community College. In his only season with the Artichokes, he led Scottsdale to the 2002 ACCAC playoffs with a 9-7-1 record. He spent eight years with the Sereno Soccer Club in Arizona, working as a head coach and trainer. Potter led the `88 girls team to a Region IV second place finish, three third place finishes and four Arizona state titles. That squad and the `84 girls team were consistently ranked as one of the top 10 teams in Region IV. Potter’s `84 team won seven consecutive state titles and overall, he placed nine players on the Region IV team and three advanced to the youth national team pool. He graduated from West London College of Brunel University in 1992 with an honors degree in physical education and religious, social and moral education.

SIX QUESTIONS WITH COACH POTTER 1

How do you expect the progress made in the spring to carry over into the fall? “As we journeyed through the spring, we talked about changing the mind set of this team. We were very pleased with the progress we made and a big credit for that goes to the players. They embraced the change and they’ve embraced us as a staff. They’ve done nothing but good things in terms of their work ethic and they’ve tried to adjust what they had previously done to fit what we are trying to implement. I can do nothing but applaud them for that. The challenge is trying to pick up where we left off for the preseason. We are prepared and we are in a good place as we head into the season.”

2

Who are some players that stood out in the spring? “I think from day one, we’ve been aware of who some key players could be. In particular, Kat Nutman, Zoe Dickson and Annalisa Hall, for me, really embraced what we have tried to put in place. As a result, they have made great strides personally. Those three, for me, spring to mind when I hear that question initially, but really, I’ve been pleased with the attitude and development of the whole group.”

3

What newcomer should fans be excited to watch this season? “I think Renae (Cuellar) with her experience, her international pedigree and having performed on a World Cup Stage, is somebody that can come in right away and compliment the talent we already have. Obviously, we brought her here for a reason, and that was to make an impact. We are hoping that her impact can be a positive one for the team and the program.”

4

What is the key to success in 2012? “I think the key to our success is for everyone to embrace the vision of this program and continue to build relationships. Everything else, soccer wise, will take care of itself if we continue to invest in each other. We are looking to build off the hard work from those that have been here prior to us. The 2010 team went to the NCAA tournament for a reason, they went to PKs in the Big 12 Championship game for a reason, and that was because they were good at what they did and that includes the players and the coaching staff. We are under the impression that the 2011 season was nothing more than a blip, and maybe the recent change will take this program back to where it belongs.”

5

6

What are your thoughts on the Big 12 Conference after spending the last nine years in the Pac 12? “To be honest, I do not know too much about the Big 12 teams. Obviously, we know Oklahoma State is very successful and has been. At Washington State, we had experience going against Texas A&M and Texas and playing in those environments. I am actually looking forward to a fresh challenge in playing those programs. The Big 12 teams are no different than the Pac 12 teams, they are competitive they are well coached, they are organized and they are used to winning. To be on that type of stage, is a great challenge for me, our staff and our players. The other coaches have been nothing but hospitable in our transition, but I am sure that will change when we start playing each other (laughing).” What are some of the strengths and weaknesses of this team? “I think, not necessarily a weakness, but a challenge of the team is the belief that if we do what we say we are going to do, that only good things will happen. If we invest and believe, then that so called weakness or challenge, will turn into a strength. The strength of the team is probably the athleticism and individual talent. If we can gel and mesh together, we will have a deep team. We saw glimpses of that in the spring, but it wasn’t consistent. I’ve really been encouraged with our ability to possess the ball and that helped produce a stingy defense that allowed one goal in the spring. If we can continue to do that, we are going to be very competitive in games and that is what we plan to do. So our possession has been good, but like many teams, our finishing and our creativity in the attacking third has to improve.“ SOONERSPORTS.COM - 19

GRAEME ABEL Assistant Head Coach Third Year at Oklahoma

and I’m looking forward OU to ck ba e m co to g in cit “It’s ex to new heights and on m ra og pr e th sh pu t at to helping M at Washington State m hi ith w e tim y M ts. en em achiev was extremely enjoyable.” A native of Liverpool, England, Abel returns to Norman as an assistant after serving as the Sooner’s goalkeeper coach during the 2008 and 2009 seasons. Over the past two years, Abel worked with the Cougar goalkeepers and Matt Potter at Washington State. “Graeme is an outstanding coach with an expertise in goalkeeping. He has the background, pedigree and track record to show he can develop student-athletes on and off the field. He has performed on the highest of stages and coached at the national team level,” Potter said. “We have an established working relationship that can only blossom in Norman as we look to further establish ourselves in the women’s collegiate game.“ In 2011, Washington State enjoyed one of its best seasons in program history with Potter at the helm and Abel working with the goalkeepers. The Cougars won 12 games a year ago and advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament, anchored by a defense that limited the opposition to one goal or less in 20 of the 23 games played. In addition, freshman goalkeeper Gurveen Clair posted seven of the team’s nine shutouts last season with a 0.74 goals-against average. The nine shutouts ranks fourth all-time at Washington State and even more impressive, six of the shutouts came in Pac-12 play, a conference that produced the 2011 NCAA National Champion in Stanford. In 2008, Abel made his first trek to Norman to help then-head coach Nicole Nelson reestablish the program. In addition to working with the OU goalkeepers, Abel also assisted with the program’s recruiting efforts and helped recruit several of the Sooners on the current roster. Also while on the OU staff, Abel worked a camp with the Under-20 U.S. Women’s National Team in 2009, while also working with the Region III Olympic Development Program. “It’s exciting to come back to OU and I’m looking forward to helping Matt push the program on to new heights and achievements,” said Abel.“I’d like to thank Matt for allowing me such an opportunity. My time with him at Washington State was extremely enjoyable and I’m both eager and excited to replicate such an environment here in Norman.” Before Oklahoma and Washington State, Abel wok red three years as Nevada’s goalkeepers coach. With Abel on staff, Nevada enjoyed 30 wins and three straight trips to the Western Athletic Conference tournament, including the 2006 WAC Championship and the program’s only NCAA tournament appearance in 2006. In addition, Abel’s pupils anchored a Nevada defense that recorded 23 shutouts in three seasons (Nevada had three in program history prior to his arrival). He also handled aspects relating to compliance and recruiting with the soccer program. In addition, the 2006 Wolf Pack recorded a school-record 13 wins and ranked second in the conference in goals allowed and goals-against average. Nevada’s goalkeepers posted 12 shutouts, a 0.61 goals-against average and allowed just 14 goals in 2006, all program bests. Prior to his stint in Nevada, Abel was an assistant coach for the men’s and women’s teams at Brescia University in Owensboro, Ky., where he spent the 2004 season leading the Bearcats’ goalkeepers. 20 - 2012 SOCCER MEDIA GUIDE

She has boundless energy and impressed us with her personality, vision and commitment to contribute to our program. It was clear to us that her enthusiasm was a match from the moment she stepped on campus.” A native of Arlington, Texas, White’s collegiate coaching experience includes serving as a volunteer assistant in 2008 at Southern Methodist University and as an assistant coach at Texas Tech University in 2007. She has also worked with the Sky Blue Soccer School (2009-2010) and started her own camp after playing for UNC, the Kacey White Champions Camps, which still runs today. “With a working knowledge and having played in and grown up in the Dallas area, Kacey brings an instant credibility to our desire to recruit in the state of Texas,” added Potter. “The addition of Kacey speaks to the ambition of this program as we continue to shape the staff for a new chapter in Oklahoma soccer.” “I am extremely excited about the opportunity to continue my collegiate coaching career at OU and to aid Coach Potter and the staff in their vision for the bright future of the Sooner soccer program,” said White.“I would like to thank the staff for the opportunity and I am honored to now be a part of such a wonderful academic and athletic institution.” On the collegiate level, White was a two-time All-American (2004 and 2005) for perennial power North Carolina and helped lead the Tar Heels to a National Championship in 2003 and three ACC Championships (2002, 2003 and 2005). White was also a three-time All-ACC selection and was named the most valuable player of the 2005 ACC Tournament. She finished her career ranked No. 5 on UNC’s alltime career assists list and ranked fourth in the nation in 2003 with 16 helpers. White also excelled in the classroom and was a three-time member of the Dean’s list and a member of ACC Academic Honor Roll in 2005. Following her collegiate career, White has been with the U.S. National Team since 2006 and was an alternate for the team in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. She began playing for the national team on the U-19 squad (2001-2002) and moved up the U-21 team from 2004-2006. She made her first career appearance on the U.S. National Team in 2006 and made 13 of her 17 career caps in 2008.

DAVID L. BOREN University President 13th President at Oklahoma

David 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. 24 - 2012 SOCCER MEDIA GUIDE

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 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 $1.9 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 VP / Athletics Director 11th Director at Oklahoma

The 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 coincidence 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 some big changes, some big and, in the process, created a team of administrators, coaches and support staff who have built a climate that pursues ambitious, if not, 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 nearly 600 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, recordsetting 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 longterm 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 selfsustaining. 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 21 sports 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 $330 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 the national and conference level. He recently was named to the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee. 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 fouryear 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 is currently serving on the NCAA Working Group on Collegiate Model-Rules Committee. 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. In November 2011, he was named to the Broward County Sports Hall of Fame. 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. SOONERSPORTS.COM - 25

2011 SEASON REVIEW

notes and highlights

Sooners finish 2011 with Big 12 Tournament Appearance Oklahoma (7-13 overall, 2-6 Big 12) finished the 2011 season with its second straight appearance in the Big 12 Championship, a first since the 2005 and 2006 seasons. While the Sooners did not play in the title game like 2010, OU lost to No. 2 Oklahoma State in the final game of the year. The Cowgirls won the Big 12 quarterfinal, 1-0, with the Sooners and later advanced to the Elite Eight in the NCAA Tournament. The game was the final for seniors Michelle Alexander, Sage Coralli, Lisa Jett, Kelsey Kraft, Tori Rocke and Jordan White. OU returns nine of the 11 starters for the 2012 season, including a trio of three-year starters in goalkeeper Kelsey Devonshire and midfielders Dria Hampton and Katharine Nutman. Once again in 2011, the Sooners faced a challenging non-conference schedule before play in the always competitive Big 12 began. Overall, the Sooners played eight games against six teams (three times against Oklahoma State) that were also in the 2010 postseason field of 64. In addition, OU played 12 games against teams with 10-plus wins a year ago. The tough competition did not go unnoticed as OU hosted its first nationally televised game on Oct. 16 vs. Missouri (ESPNU). OU appeared on national or local TV in five games in 2011, including three home games. The Sooners scored 29 goals in 2011 with 11 different goal scorers, led by junior Caitlin Mooney (six goals, five assists) and sophomore Amy Petrikin (six goals, three game winners). For the third straight year, junior Dria Hampton led the team in assists with a career-best six. She is the only Sooner to accomplish that feat in three straight seasons.

12 Sooners Named to Academic All-Big 12 Team Oklahoma had 12 players named to the 2011 Academic All-Big 12 teams in November. The Sooners had the third most players honored in the Big 12, including 10 first team honorees. The 10 honorees marks the eighth straight season that OU has placed at least five student-athletes on the first team. The 10 members on the first team is the third most in program history behind the 11 in 2005 and the 12 in 2000. Michelle Alexander, Bailey Boulware, Sage Coralli, Dria Hampton, Lisa Jett, Kelsey Kraft, Caitlin Mooney, Katharine Nutman, Brianna Turang and Kathryn Watson were all named to the first team while Samantha Howell and Amy Petrikin were second team honorees. Alexander made her third appearance on the list while Hampton, Kraft and Nutman, who had a perfect 4.0 GPA, all made their second appearances.

Alexander and Watson Named Academic All-District In addition to the conference accolades, Michelle Alexander and Kathryn Watson were named to the Capital One Academic All-District VII women’s soccer second team on Nov. 4. OU has been represented on the academic all-district team in each of the last nine years and has multiple honorees in six of those seasons. Alexander was a three-time honoree, a program first.

MOONEY FINISHES 2011 AS OFFENSIVE LEADER The preseason All-Big 12 pick finished the 2011 campaign as OU’s leader in goals (six, tied with Amy Petrikin) and points (17). In 2010, she scored seven goals with three assists en route to being named to the All-Big 12 Newcomer team. Including Mooney, OU returns its three top scorers with Petrikin and Dria Hampton.

Mooney’s Record Performance Caitlin Mooney’s six points and two assists on Sept. 2 versus Oral Roberts tied a pair of program records. Mooney contributed on each of the Sooners’ four scores in the game and recorded her first two-goal game. Only two other Sooners in program history have had six points in a game, but both were recorded on three-goal performances. Whitney Palmer had the hat trick against Tulsa on Aug 30, 2010 and Logan Womack also had a hat trick against Baylor on Sept. 27, 2002. Palmer and Womack rank No. 1 and No. 2 in OU history in scoring, respectively. Mooney was named the Big 12 Conference Offensive Player of the Week on Sept. 6 for her efforts, her second career honor.

THE UNIVERSITY academics

THE PATH TO GRADUATION STARTS HERE 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 studentathletes 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 student-athletes with a state-ofthe-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.

The Legacy of Prentice Gautt The OU Academics 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. “It is appropriate that this center be named after Prentice Gautt,” University of Oklahoma 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.” 86 - 2012 SOCCER MEDIA GUIDE

Located on the second and third floors in the north end of the Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, the Academic Center houses Academic Counseling offices, and Learning and Skill Development centers including the Kerr Foundation Computer Center, the Thompson Writing Center and centers for communication, reading, study skills, math and foreign language as well as learning enhancement and study areas.

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. 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 Career Center is a link with the campus Careers Services Office and offers student-athletes a wide array of effective job hunting skills, training and career services.

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.


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. Group training is provided for all new student-athletes during the first week of supervised study. This helps familiarize each student with our resources and procedures. Individual training sessions are available to each student and lab technicians are always on hand to help.

On an individual basis, students have the option of working with computers, audio-visual equipment and tutors in order to enhance their language experience.

In addition, it offers personal and group tutoring sessions to assist with math assignments.

athletics excellence

SUCCESS ACROSS THE BOARD 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 bestever 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. 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. Even more remarkable, during the 2008-2009 season, the OU football and men’s and women’s basketball teams combined for 74 wins – tying the most ever 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. 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. 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. The following represents a closer look at the tradition powering the Oklahoma Sooners: • Oklahoma was playing football before it was a state. It’s only one of two Division I football programs to win seven or more national championships. And OU is the only Division I football program ever to record 47 straight victories. • With Sam Bradford at No. 1, Gerald McCoy at No. 3 and Trent Williams at No. 4, Oklahoma became the first school ever to supply three of the first four NFL 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 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. • Oklahoma defeated UCLA in the 2000 Women’s College World Series to capture the school’s first softball national championship. The Sooners won 66 games, broke 15 school records, had four All-Americans, the WCWS Most Outstanding Player, three WCWS all-tournament team members, a Big 12 title, a No. 1 ranking and the National Coaching Staff of the Year. The Sooners became just the second non-West Coast team in NCAA history to win a softball national championship. • The OU men’s basketball team has competed in 27 postseason tournaments in the last 30 years. In 2009 OU produced its 32nd winning season in the last 34 years. No other Big 12 team can boast as many winning campaigns in the span. • Sooner football has accumulated seven national championships, 43 conference titles, 26 bowl championships, 152 All-Americans and had 350 players drafted by the NFL, including 41 first-round selections and four No. 1 picks: Lee Roy Selmon (1976), Billy Sims (1980), Brian Bosworth (1987—supplemental) and Sam Bradford (2010). • Oklahoma’s storied wrestling program has amassed 23 conference titles and seven national championships. OU has produced 263 All-Americans and its 65 individual national champions ranks third all-time. •


The OU women’s basketball team advanced to its third overall and second-consecutive Final Four in 2010 after playing the nation’s toughest schedule. The Sooners, at some point, played all four No. 1 seeds in the NCAA Championship and 13 teams ranked in the final top 25. • Oklahoma football has placed 28 former Sooners into the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame, including three head coaches: Bennie Owen in 1951, Bud Wilkinson in 1969 and Barry Switzer in 2001. • The Oklahoma men’s golf program has produced 47 All-Americans, eight three-time All-Americans, eight individual conference champions, 14 conference titles and the 1989 national championship. • OU football has produced five Heisman Trophy winners: halfback Billy Vessels won the award in 1952, tailback Steve Owens won in 1969, halfback Billy Sims won in 1978, quarterback Jason White brought the trophy back to Norman in 2003 and fellow QB Sam Bradford took home the award last season. OU players have captured 63 national awards and the Sooners have also produced five Outland Trophies, four Walter Camp Trophies, four Butkus Award winners, four Davey O’Brien Awards, three Lombardi Awards, three Thorpe Awards, two Bronko Nagurski Awards, two Maxwell Awards, one Tatupu Award, one Johnny Unitas Award and one Bednarik award. • The Oklahoma baseball team swept through its regional tournament and the World Series without a loss to capture the 1994 national championship. The Sooners topped off a 42-17 regular season with the school’s second national baseball title.

• Oklahoma golf’s Charlie Coe was one of the most celebrated amateur players in the history of the game. During his career, Coe captured U.S. amateur crowns in 1949, 1958 and 1959. He also played in 19 straight Masters Tournaments. Coe competed on the Walker Cup teams of 1949, 1951 and 1953.

2002. She was the WNBA’s third overall draft pick by the Washington Mystics. In addition to leading OU to the 2002 national championship game, Dales was a two-time consensus All-American, two-time Big 12 Player of the Year, four-time Academic All-Big 12 selection, and two-time CoSIDA Academic All-American.

• Oklahoma wrestling has produced 18 Olympians who have collectively won three gold and two silver medals. Brothers Dave and Mark Schultz both won gold in the 1984 games.

• Former OU letterwinners Michael Blackwood (track and field), Jonathan Horton (men’s gymnastics) and Danny McFarlane (track and field) represented Oklahoma at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

• Oklahoma baseball won the 1951 College World Series with a come-from-behind win over Tennessee in the championship game to become the first team in history to claim the title after winning the double-elimination tournament without a defeat.

• Three-time OU All-American Anthony Kim won the 2008 AT&T National in early July, becoming the first American golfer since Tiger Woods to win twice in one year on the PGA Tour. Kim was also a member of the victorious U.S. squad at the 2008 Ryder Cup where he played a crucial role in winning the cup with a crushing defeat of Sergio Garcia.

• Oklahoma baseball advanced to its 10th College World Series appearance in 2010 and finished the season ranked No. 5 nationally, the program’s highest finish since claiming OU’s second national title in 1994. • Oklahoma basketball great Wayman Tisdale was a threetime All-American for the Sooners from 1983-85 and is the all-time leading scorer and rebounder in OU history. He was a member of the 1984 gold-medal-winning U.S. Olympic team and was recently named the greatest player ever in the Big Eight Conference by a panel of longtime conference media observers and officials. Tisdale’s No. 23 jersey was retired by Oklahoma in 1997 -- the first jersey ever retired by OU in any sport. • Sooner basketball great Stacey Dales graduated as the most decorated player in the program’s history in

• OU women’s gymnastics made its eighth-straight NCAA Championships in 2011 and its second straight NCAA top three finish. OU made back-to-back appearances in the NCAA Super Six in 2010 and 2011, finishing in a program best second place in 2010 and third place overall in 2011. The Sooners completed their third undefeated regular season in four years in 2011 and currently own the nation’s longest regular season win streak at 29. • OU women’s gymnastics became the first women’s sport at Oklahoma to be ranked No. 1 during the regular season in 2010. The Sooners were ranked first or second in every regular season poll in 2010, as the Sooners were the only squad in the country to score above a 196.000 in every meet. SOONERSPORTS.COM - 89


THE UNIVERSITY

tradition and spirit

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:

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.

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 1915-1928, 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.”

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 “go-go” 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 a Sooner, the greatness of the university and the unity between all Sooners. The Chant was written in 1936 by Jessie Lone Clarkson Gilkey, who directed the OU girl’s glee club from 1936 to 1938 and was voted Outstanding Faculty Woman in 1937. O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A Our chant rolls on and on! Thousands strong Join heart and song In alma mater’s praise Of campus beautiful by day and night Of colors proudly gleaming Red and White ‘Neath a western sky OU’s chant will never die. Live on University!

On gamedays, a sea of crimson rolls through OU’s home venues and all Sooners are urged to wear the SOONERSPORTS.COM - 91

community service

SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY THAT SUPPORTS THE SOONERS

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.

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.

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.

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.

“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 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 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.

• The OU men’s gymnastics team participated in Adopt-An-Angel, Safe Trick-OrTreat 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.

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.

• 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.

“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.”

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


• 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.

• 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.

• 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.

• 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.

• 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.

• 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.

• 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. • 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 Sooners sponsored a campus-wide blood drive with the American Red Cross with more than 100 donors whose donations will help save the lives of more than 500 people. • The women’s basketball team earned the 2009 CHAMPS/Life Skills Team Competition Award. The team earned points through community service hours, attendance at life skills events, athletics competitions, BridgeBuilder and SAAC events as well as participation in campus cultural events. The squad also earned points for individual GPAs.

• 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. SOONERSPORTS.COM - 93

JERRY SCHMIDT - Director of Sports Enhancement 10 Years at Oklahoma Schmidt is recognized nationally as one of the best in the business and his work, along with his staff, serves as one of the key components to OU athletics excellence. SCOTT ANDERSON - Head Athletics Trainer 12 Years at Oklahoma The recently appointed president of the College Athletic Trainers’ Society, Anderson supervises a staff of nine full-time certified athletic trainers, one physical therapist, eight graduate assistants and 20 undergraduates who provide a bulk of the care for OU student-athletes. “I am honored to be appointed President of the College Athletic Trainers’ Society,” said Anderson. “This is an organization dedicated to the professional and personal life of the college athletic trainer as we expand the margin of safety for our student-athletes in sport.”


STATE-OF-THE-ART ADDITION Among the recent updates that increased OU’s athletic training space to 10,000 square feet were the addition of new hot and cold plunge hydrotherapy pools (shown left). The facility also includes a water rehabilitation pool that features an underwater treadmill, allowing athletes the opportunity to exercise after injury much sooner than on land. By taking away the weight bearing forces of gravity, an athlete is able to keep their running motion while waiting for the injury to heal, allowing the athlete to maintain cardiovascular endurance. The treadmill reaches a speed of approximately eight miles per hour and features underwater jets that provide increased resistance if needed. Underwater cameras allow the athletic trainers and physical therapists to view the running mechanics of the athlete, ensuring proper form and a speedy road to recovery. OTHER ADDITIONS - Two examinations rooms (Don H. O’Donoghue, M.D. Orthopedic Examination Room and E. Randy Eichner, M.D. Examination Room) - Hydroworx 2000 series - Hydroworx Cold Plunge - Two full body whirlpools - Monitored Rehab System shuttle - Digital x-ray

COMPREHENSIVE REHABILITATION 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 studentathletes 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 new 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. SOONERSPORTS.COM - 95

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-squarefoot 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. 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 recent years and helped develop OU’s reputation as a pioneer in the strength and conditioning field.

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. 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. 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 postgame 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. The programs opened a 12-court outdoor championship facility in 2001 during the Great Expectations campaign that was particularly 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.

“We are so grateful for the donors who helped us complete Phase II of the Soccer and Tennis facilities,” said OU Athletics Director Joe Castiglione. “ One of the unique aspects of the funding for our first phase was that almost every dollar was provided by former student-athletes. Many of those same individuals were so excited about the quality of the facility that they stepped forward again to finish the project and provide state-of-the-art facilities for our current student-athletes.” The OU soccer and tennis clubhouse features a training room, locker rooms, video and conference rooms, team facilities, and equipment, laundry and other support services. The press box is equipped with camera decks and a media level complete with the latest technologies. The attractive conference room/meeting area serves as a versatile location for team meetings and activities, and can be used to host special guests, parents, donors and media. In addition to increasing the seating capacity to 3,500, the complex also includes concessions, restrooms and a ticket booth to give fans a complete family atmosphere for watching Division I soccer. “We have an incredible facility that is second to none and the commitment to success is evident when you look at our facility,” said head coach Nicole Nelson. “Our facility is unique in that it allows the crowd to be very involved with what is happening in the game because they sit very close to the field. It is the perfect soccer environment and unique in the Big 12.”


HISTORY On Sept. 8, 2000, a new era began for the OU soccer program when the Sooners hosted SMU in the first game at the on-campus complex. Before the game, a ceremony, featuring OU Director of Athletics Joe Castiglione, was held to celebrate the opening of the complex. The first phase ($1.2 million) at the OU Soccer Complex featured a first-class, regulation field with top-of-the-line turf and drainage system. Since its initial season, the most noticeable addition of the project was the scoreboard which measures 37 feet in length and is close to 15 feet in height (standing 25 feet above ground). In 2002, the field was renamed to honor the donation made by John Crain. The $600,000 gift, all of which was applied to the soccer program, still remains one of the largest ever made to Sooner women’s athletics. In 2006, the complex enjoyed a $4.5 million renovation that included a state-ofthe-art press box and grandstand, joined by a multi-use building located between the soccer complex and the Headington Family Tennis Center at the corner of Chautauqua Avenue and Imhoff Road.

A university town with a championship spirit Norman was recently named by Money Magazine as No. 6 of America’s Best Places to Live among “small” cities or locations with a population between 50,000 and 300,000. Norman is an ever-changing city of nearly 100,000 residents. Located in the heart of the state, it has grown to become the third largest city in Oklahoma. Despite its continuous growth, it has maintained the spirit and serenity of a small close-knit community. Since the Oklahoma 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 Medieval Fair has become a springtime tradition in Norman as people from around the country converge on the city for one weekend each April to partake in a fascinating look back in time. Each year, an area park is transformed into a festival of sights, sounds and tastes straight from the Middle Ages. Knights joust, jesters entertain and story tellers spin tales of a magical time in history. The $44 million Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, a state-of-theart 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.


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. Oklahoma City has become a haven for exciting sports action. It is home of an NBA team, two semiprofessional 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 recent success of the Central Hockey League’s Oklahoma City Blazers. The Blazers won the CHL crown in 1996 and are yearly one of the league’s best teams. 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.
