2011 Outlook Southern Utah University women’s volleyball will take to the court in 2011 with high expectations, despite being only in its third year, after a Summit League tournament appearance in 2010 and five of seven starters returning from a year ago. Included in the mix is two-time first-team all-conference selection Analaine Pelaez-Mailoto and 20101 Summit League all-freshmen team honoree Alissa Youart. Pelaez-Mailoto and Youart will be anticipated to anchor a strong Thunderbird attack after finishing first and fourth in kills last year with 464 and 143, respectively. Kylie Schofield was also among the leaders in kills for Southern Utah in 2010, finishing the year just shy of 100 kills after logging 94 in 66 sets played. Joining that trio on the outsides will be true freshman Eden Van Orden and junior college transfer Stephanie Stearman.Van Orden was a four-year letter winner in volleyball, basketball and track at Snake River High School, leading the Purple Panthers to the 2010 Idaho state title on the volleyball court and finished her career with more than 2,000 kills. Stearman, a Brighton High School product, played for Snow College for two years and tallied more than 200 kills.

Jordan Anderson

The rest of the Southern Utah attack will come from the middles with two starters, Cashaana Renfro and Hailey Moore, returning in addition to Lusia Angilau who was a member of the team during the 2010 season. Renfro finished the 2010 campaign Analaine Pelaez-Mailoto

third on the team with 173 kills and was also one of the top performers with a .209 attacking percentage. Moore led the team with a .237 attacking percentage in 2010 and was just shy of 100 kills, finishing the year with 87. Freshman Annie Stradling, a product of the Southern Utah Volleyball Academy, will bring size to the front line, standing 6 foot 3 inches. The team, in general, has grown in 2011 with the squad measuring in at an average height of 5 feet 11 inches. The Thunderbird attack will be directed by a fresh face in 2011 as freshman Gabi Mirand will fill the shoes of graduated senior Brittney Clark. Mirand, a native of Southern California, was a three-year letter winner at St. Josephs High School and played club ball with Goldenwest VBC. Megan Clyde-Toolson will provide depth at the position, having already seen action at setter in several matches during her two years in Cedar City.

2011 Outlook Defensively the Thunderbirds return 65 percent of their blocking total, led by Renfro’s 95 in 2010, including a teambest eight solo blocks and 87 block assists. The team also returns starting libero Caitlin Jensen who rewrote the record books in 2010 en route to a season total of 477 digs. Close at her heels will be freshman Davia Lee who is anticipated to see plenty of action as a libero despite playing as an outside hitter

Coaching Staff Debby Baker has already enjoyed a strong head coach career at Southern Utah University since bringing the program back in 2009. In her brief four years, three years of competition, Baker has led the Thunderbirds to the Summit League tournament and recruited Analaine Pelaez-Mailoto, the 2009 Summit League Freshman of the Year. Southern Utah opened its first volleyball season since the 1988 season in 2009, posting a straight-set victory over Delaware State (25-21, 25-21, 2520) and also opened its first game in the Centrum Arena with a 3-1 victory over IPFW (25-19, 25-15, 19-25, 25-22). Baker’s charges also opened the 2010 season with a straight-set victory over Murray State (25-22, 25-14, 25-23) en route to a season-best mark of 15-15, including a 12-6 record in conference play. The record qualified the Thunderbirds for the fourth seed in the conference tournament in only the teams’ second year of competition. Baker joined the Thunderbirds after six seasons with New Mexico State University where she served as an assistant coach and the Director of Volleyball Operations. During her time with the Aggies, NMSU compiled a 165-32 (.858) record with 20 all-conference athletes, two conference titles and four NCAA tournament appearances. Baker was a strong recruiter for New Mexico State, signing a top-50 national class in 2003 and the 2005 Western Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year, Amber Simpson. Baker also did her part for her student-athletes to succeed in the classroom with two athletes (Jackie Chio and Jordan Bostic) earning CoSIDA Academic All-American plaudits. Prior to her stop in Las Cruces, N.M., Baker served as an assistant coach with the University of New Mexico during the 2001 season. She also served as a volunteer assistant coach at Utah State University during the 2000 season and at the College of Southern Idaho during the 1994 and 1995 seasons. During her time at CSI, Baker helped coach the Eagles to an NJCAA National Championship with a 62-3 record in 1994 and an undefeated season in 1995 with a 65-0 mark. Baker played collegiately for the Aggies of Utah State (1992-1993) following an all-region career at the College of Southern Idaho (1990-1991). While in Logan, Baker earned Big West academic honors, graduating Cum Laude with a Marketing degree in 1994. Baker is originally from Star Valley, Wyo. and is married to Jon Baker. The couple have one son together, Logan, and reside in Cedar City. Women’s volleyball will be making a comeback after the program was dropped by the university following the 1988-1989 season despite a rich history while competing in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. During their years in the NAIA, the Thunderbirds accumulated seven consecutive conference titles from 1976-1983, losing only three Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference games in the process. The run also included several postseason appearances, culminating with a fourth-place national finish in 1981.

Longmore plays a major role in recruiting with the Thunderbirds in addition to overseeing film exchange and the scouting and development of game plans for all competitions. Despite being one of the shortest teams in the Summit League, with Longmore’s defensive systems and strategies tutelage, the Thunderbirds ranked fourth in the conference in blocks in 2010. The team was particularly strong in Summit League matches, ranking second in the conference in blocks and first in opponent hitting percentages. While at WWU, Longmore served as the head coach from 2004-2007, overseeing all aspects of the volleyball program. Prior to leading the program, Longmore served as an assistant coach with the program from 2003-2004.

Longmore also played on the team as an outside hitter from 2000-2002 and served as team captain during his second year. Longmore and his wife, Jenny have three children: daughter, Odessa and sons, Addison and Elijah.

THE SUMMIT LEAGUE “Ascending” and “improving” are adjectives frequently y used in media coverage of The Summit mmit League as it continues a renaissance ssance on the playing eld and in the classroom. As The Summit League celebrates its 30th anniversary season as an NCAA Division I athletics conference, the level of performance and achievement among the 11 member institutions and over 3,000 student-athletes in 19 championship sports continues to grow. Since 2007, The Summit League has produced 39 All-Americans and 28 Academic All-America selections along with three NCAA Champions, two NBA Draft choices and one Olympic Silver medalist. Headlining The Summit League’s most recent history were the additions of the University of South Dakota and the University of Nebraska Omaha to its membership. USD joined in 2009 and the 2011-12 academic year marks its rst year of full league competition. UNO’s membership took effect on July 1, 2011 and it will begin league competition in 2012-13. The Summit League’s visibility continues to expand on several fronts. The 2011 Baseball Championship drew a record number of fans after another successful Summit League Basketball Championship totaled the second-highest attendance gure in league history. Television exposure also increased with the broadcasts of four Summit League sport championships in 2010-11, including the second consecutive season that all 14 men’s and women’s basketball tournament games were televised live. Additionally, The Summit League Outdoor Track and Field Championships were televised for the rst time and the league’s entire Baseball Tournament was carried live, marking another rst. National reach of The Summit League was furthered when three member institutions hosted 2010-11 NCAA Championship events. IUPUI was a quad-host for the Women’s Basketball Final Four, UMKC co-hosted the Volleyball Championship and Oakland hosted the Great Lakes Cross Country Regional Championship. In men’s basketball, The Summit League ranked No. 18 in the Sagarin Ratings, placing four teams among the top 150 and six in the top 200. In the Mid-Major Top 25 poll, league champion Oakland ranked No. 5 with two rst-place votes entering the NCAA Tournament, putting them ahead of two Final Four participants, including the national runner-up. Women’s basketball joined the men in sending multiple teams to the postseason with three teams advancing for the secondstraight year, including Oral Roberts, which reached the WNIT’s round of 16 to match the league’s deepest run in that tournament. Individually on the hardwood, Oakland’s Keith Benson was selected in the 2011 NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks and on the women’s side, Oral Roberts’ Kevi Luper became the rst player in history to lead the NCAA in both points per game and steals per game in the same season. Several teams continued impressive championship streaks within the league in 2010-11. Oral Roberts, which nished the season nationally-ranked, won its 14th-straight baseball title, tying for the second-longest streak in NCAA history. Oakland captured its 12thconsecutive men’s and women’s swimming and diving titles while North Dakota State won its fourth-straight men’s and women’s indoor track and eld championships and its third softball crown in a row. South Dakota State became the rst women’s basketball team to win three consecutive league championships. The Summit League enjoyed a successful track and eld season with eight All-Americans, including six at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. Oral Roberts’ Jack Whitt led the way by nishing as runner-up in the pole vault at the Outdoor Championships after placing third indoors. Two Summit Leaguers, North Dakota State’s Amy Anderson and Whitney Carlson, each received the prestigious NCAA Elite 88 Award, given to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative gradepoint average participating at the nals site for each of the NCAA championships. Anderson went on to earn All-America status after recording the league’s highest NCAA golf nish and Carlson became the rst female athlete in league history to earn All-America honors in two events at both the NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Championships during the same year.

The accomplishments of 2010-11 came on the heels of exceptional success the previous two years. In 2009-10, IUPUI’s Chen Ni became The Summit League’s rst female NCAA Champion when she took  rst in the platform dive. rst dive Oakland’s Keith Benson was named the Lou Henson Award winner as the men’s basketball Mid-Major Player of the Year. The preceding year, Oral Roberts track star Andretti Bain won a silver medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics as a member of the Bahamas’ 4x400-meter relay team after winning both the NCAA Indoor and Outdoor 400-meter titles and IUPUI’s George Hill became The Summit League’s second NBA rst round draft pick. Originally formed in 1982 as the Association of Mid-Continent Universities and later known as the Mid-Continent Conference, The Summit League is in its fth year of rebranding that followed its 25th anniversary and coincided with the Summit Plan, a strategic plan that places a renewed emphasis on improving the academic and athletic performances of all league student-athletes. The Summit League has a combined enrollment of over 135,000 at 11 universities, ve of which are located in the top 76 U.S. media markets (Detroit, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Tulsa and Omaha). Member institutions include: IPFW (Indiana University-Purdue University-Fort Wayne), IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis), UMKC (University of Missouri-Kansas City), the University of Nebraska Omaha (which begins league competition in 2012-13), North Dakota State University, Oakland University, Oral Roberts University, the University of South Dakota (in its rst year as a full member), South Dakota State University, Southern Utah University and Western Illinois University. Eastern Illinois University is an associate member in swimming and diving and men’s soccer. League champions receive an automatic NCAA Tournament bid in all applicable sports. Since its inception in 1982, The Summit League has had several transcendent moments on the national stage. In 1986, Cleveland State upset third-seeded Indiana in the rst round of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament on its way to a berth in the Sweet 16. A decade later, Valparaiso captured the nation’s attention when Bryce Drew hit “the shot” to defeat No. 4 seed Mississippi in an NCAA rstround game and spark its Sweet 16 run. More recently, Oral Roberts’ baseball program nished the 2004 campaign with a national-ranking and became the rst Summit League school to reach an NCAA Super Regional in 2006. Three years later, North Dakota State’s 2009 softball team became the rst to advance to the Super Regional round. During the 2008-09 basketball season, South Dakota State’s women’s team was nationally-ranked throughout the year and recorded an NCAA Tournament victory. The Summit League has produced ve NCAA champions, four Olympic athletes and several All-Americans in the sports of track and eld, swimming and diving and cross country. Numerous professional players and several draft choices have come directly from The Summit League, including three Major League Baseball rst round picks, a pair of NBA rst rounders, and one WNBA selection. Former Summit Leaguer Kevin Duckworth (NBA) was a two-time all-star during his professional career. Recent and historical success coupled with an increased growth among its membership base gives The Summit League a promising future on the landscape of college athletics.

Dr. Michael T. Benson Southern Utah University President

Michael T. Benson was appointed the 15th president of Southern Utah University on November 10, 2006, by the Utah State Board of Regents. Dr. Benson came to SUU from Snow College where he served as president for five years. Prior to his tenure in Ephraim, Dr. Benson was special assistant to the president and secretary to the University of Utah, a cabinet-level position on that campus. During his presidency at Snow, athletic teams excelled, winning several conference championships and finishing near the top of national rankings. He was instrumental in establishing America’s premier junior college football bowl game, the Zions Bank Top of the Mountains Bowl, played each December in Salt Lake City. Dr. Benson currently serves as Chair of the Presidents’ Council for the Summit League. President Benson is the father of four children, Emma, Samuel, Truman Taft, and Tatum Anne. He and his wife Debi, along with the kids, are regularly seen around campus and at all types of sporting events. An accomplished athlete, Dr. Benson was captain of the East High School basketball team and one of four sophomores on the team that won the 1981 Utah State championship. He turned down track scholarships as a senior at East to enroll at Brigham Young University on a leadership scholarship, eventually earning a bachelor’s degree in political science, English, and history while playing on the junior varsity basketball team. He has also competed in the worlds oldest rivalry, serving as a player/coach in leading Oxford University over Cambridge in the 1994 Varsity Basketball Match. President Benson has completed several marathons with his best time (2:41) winning his age division at the St. George Marathon. In 1984, Michael was one of only 19 teenagers to compete in the Boston Marathon, with his finishing time of 2:52 placing him in the top 15% of all registered runners. While President of Snow College, he ran the St. George Marathon again, this time raising over $50,000 for the athletic department. He currently maintains a seven handicap in his favorite sport, golf. Dr. Benson holds a doctorate in modern Middle Eastern History from Oxford University. His criticallyacclaimed book, Harry S. Truman and the Founding of Israel has led to many lecturing and consulting opportunities. Michael regularly leads tour groups to the Middle East where he is eager to share his love for and knowledge of the region. He is currently pursuing a master’s degree in non-profit administration at the Mendoza School of Business at the University of Notre Dame. The Bensons are delighted to be at Southern Utah University and look forward to supporting Thunderbird student-athletes for many years to come.


Dear Thunderbird Fans and Supporters: One of America’s great coaches once said, “The will to win is not nearly as important as the will to prepare to win.” All of us at Southern Utah University are committed to helping our student-athletes as they prepare to win on their respective fields and courts of competition. But more importantly, we are committed to helping them acquire those tools, experiences, and skills that will help them succeed in life and their life’s work. I thank you for your continued commitment to SUU and its many outstanding athletic programs which now number 17 – the second highest number of Division I sports programs offered in the entire State of Utah. For all those who enjoy a football Saturday on a beautiful fall day in the shadow of Cedar Mountain, the benefits of Division I athletics in our community are innumerable. From the dollars spent by visiting teams and fans in our local places of business to the positive media coverage generated by our studentathletes, the University is the beneficiary of these and other positive by-products of the substantial investment in our athletic program. Donors and alumni are even more proud of their association with the University when they see a return on their donated dollars in the form of success on the field and in the classroom. Excellence in athletics will continue to be an investment we are willing to make at Southern Utah University. In addition to those student-athletes who learn invaluable lessons in both the “thrill of victory and the agony of defeat,” athletics provide excellent participation opportunities for students in bands, cheer squads, dance teams, trainers, marketing interns, and many more. Our student athletes also represent a large percentage of the geographic, socioeconomic, ethnic, and religious diversity on campus which, I believe, enhances and enriches the academic and social experience of ALL our students. I heartily commend our athletic director, Ken Beazer, and his able and committed staff for their superb stewardship of the funds directed toward athletics. I also wish to thank all the academic and support staff who regularly monitor the progress of our student-athletes to ensure their commitment to “prepare to win” while at SUU and well beyond. Thank you for your support of Southern Utah University and the proud Thunderbird tradition. Yours sincerely, President Michael Benson

When Southern Utah University’s 5,300-seat Centrum was completed in 1985, it was hoped the state-of-the-art sports facility would push the Thunderbirds to the highest level of collegiate sports. The facility hosts the women’s volleyball, men’s and women’s basketball and women’s gymnastics programs. The Centrum was a key factor in SUU’s jump to the NCAA Division I ranks and played a large role in Southern Utah’s bid to join the Mid-Continent Conference (now Summit League). Since opening in November of 1985, the Centrum has attracted thousands of people to Cedar City for Thunderbird sports, concerts and numerous other athletic and performing arts events. The facility - which covers six acres and cost just over $8 million to build - is part of the Sharwan Smith Center, which houses the SUU Bookstore, Grand Ballroom, food services and all of the student services offices. The concourse of the Centrum houses SUTV studios, the basketball offices, academic offices and numerous art studios. In 2007, the playing surface has been repainted as Southern Utah made its transition into the Summit League. The new floor will include a larger SUU Thunderbird logo at mid-court and the Summit League logos in school colors in each key. Top-of-the-line scoreboards, including message walls and a video display capable of providing instant replays were installed in 1997.

The SUU women’s volleyball locker room was built prior to the 2009 season, making it the newest team locker room on campus. The facility is located in the Centrum arena and is used for team meetings and film sessions in addition to game days. Southern Utah University Volleyball 2011 Media Guide • 51
