Head Coach

Kyle Magnusson

Kyle Magnusson was named the head coach of Southern Utah University softball in the summer of 2010, becoming the ninth head coach of the program in its history. In 2011, Magnusson opened his first season by leading the Thunderbirds to the Summit League Championships as the No. 4 seed. The team also earned 25 wins, more than doubling the winning total of the 2010 squad. Magnusson comes to Cedar City after stops at the University of Utah, Salt Lake Community College and Hunter High School (West Valley). Most notably, Magnusson has been a member of the U.S. National fast-pitch team, playing in international tournaments from 2000-2009. In his two seasons at the University of Utah, Magnusson served as an assistant coach and co-head coach, leading the Utes to a Mountain West tournament championship in 2006. Utah went on to advance to the finals at the NCAA Regionals, but fell to Texas in the championship game. At Salt Lake Community College, Magnusson laid the ground work of the Bruins’ first appearance at the NJCAA World Series in 2003. Magnusson began his coaching career with Hunter High School, turning around a program and leading the Wolverines to three consecutive second-place region finishes. HHS also recorded its best finish at the state tournament under Magnusson, finishing fifth in 2003. He was originally drawn to Utah to join the prestigious Larry Miller Toyota fast-pitch team in 1994. The team finished second in the ISC in 1995 while Magnusson earned several individual accolades, including three-time ISC all-World team and fivetime ASA Major All-American citations. Magnusson recently retired from the Men’s U.S. National team where he helped his teams to a gold-medal finish in 2002 in Guatemala, a silver-medal finish at the Pan-Am Games in 2003 and a bronze-medal finish in South Africa in 2000. He has also helped his club fast-pitch teams to three ASA National Championships, including titles in 2003, 2005 and 2006. Magnusson has continued to make an impact on the international softball scene as he was named one of only 21 coaches in the nation to the 2011-12 USA Softball National Coaches pool, including head coaches from BYU, Arizona State, Alabama, Oregon, San Diego State and Southern Mississippi. Magnusson graduated from Olivet Nazarene in 1993 with a degree in business administration.


Marc Benjamin

Assistant Coach

Marc Benjamin “Benji” is set to enter his third season as an assistant coach Southern Utah University. Head coach Kyle Magnusson and Benjamin have worked together in the past, playing together on the Larry H. Miller men’s fast pitch for five years. Benjamin also played men’s fast pitch internationally with stints in New Zealand and Australia. Benjamin honed his skills on the diamond as a baseball player in college, playing second base at the University of Utah after a pair of all-conference seasons at Cerritos Junior College. At Utah, Benjamin carried a .317 average from the plate with nine doubles, two triples, three home runs and 55 RBI. During his senior season he finished in the top ten of the Western Athletic Conference with 15 stolen bases, totaling 29 in his career. Benjamin graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in political science in 1994. Baseball and softball runs in the family for Benjamin as his brother, Mike, played 13 years in the major leagues, spending time in the Giants, Phillies, Red Sox and Pirates organizations.

Tracee Hoch

Assistant Coach

Tracee Hoch joins the SUU softball coaching staff in 2013, having most recently coached at the University of Utah during the 200709 seasons. As a player, Hoch appeared in 127 games at Brigham Young University, playing second base and totaling more than 250 putouts during her two years in Provo. In addition, Hoch helped lead the Cougars to back-to-back NCAA Regional appearances and earned academic all-conference honors as a senior. Prior to BYU, Hoch was a two-time all-Region 18 selection at Salt Lake Community College in addition to being named a second-team NJCAA all-American in 2005. While at SLCC, Hoch led the Bruins in home runs during her sophomore season under the tuteledge of current SUU head coach Kyle Magnusson, who was an assistant coach on the SLCC staff.

2013 Season Outlook The Southern Utah Softball team will be one of the university’s last programs to begin competition as a member of the Big Sky Conference this spring, but it will also find itself in a unique situation as it enters the inaugural season for the sport in the league. “It’s a great opportunity to be in this new conference. I feel like we really have a chance to do some damage in this league,” stated SUU head coach Kyle Magnusson. “Teams like Sacramento State and Portland State have historically been good programs. With this being the first year for softball in the Big Sky, it would be nice to win that first conference title.” The Thunderbirds expect to have the talent to compete in the BSC, starting with returning Easton All-American Mikkel Griffin. Last season the SUU slugger led the team with a .404 batting average, 65 hits, 12 home runs, 10 stolen bases and a .714 slugging percentage. “Mikkel had one of the best seasons that has ever been seen here,” commented Magnusson. “This year we plan on changing the lineup and moving her to the third spot, so she will have the chance to drive in even more runs.” Along with Griffin, the T-Birds return last year’s RBI leader Kelsey Bryant and six other position players. SUU also anticipates having a solid pitching staff for the upcoming season, anchored by senior Danielle Axe and junior college transfer Ariel Zimmerman.


“Danielle has really been working and is developing a more diverse game. She has one really good pitch and is getting a drop-ball, a turnover and a changeup. She’s a better pitcher than she was in the last two years,” explained Magnusson. “Ariel realizes that this is going to be a big step-up. With the level of competition she will see, she is going to have to be on top of her game everyday.” It will be a different level of competition for all the Thunderbirds to start the season, as the team will have early matchups with Tennessee, Arkansas, Nebraska, Purdue and Arizona. “I’m sure that there are some teams who have a tougher schedule than us, but not many,” said Magnusson. “I thought that we would be better as a team this year when I put together the schedule and playing this type of competition will help us slow down the game once we get to league play.” This and future years’ teams will benefit from the recruiting efforts of Coach Magnusson, who expects a lot of his incoming student-athletes. “Kelli Hales, Kylee Wolf and Meagan Neilson will all start up the middle for us,” stated Magnusson. “There will be a learning curve, but we have continued to get some of the best players in the state. Next year we will add Jordan Theurer who is the reigning Utah Player of the Year, which makes it two years in a row that the top player has come to Southern Utah.”

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.


Dr. Michael T. Benson 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 student-athletes, 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

The strong academic commitment of the staff and coaches is manifest in the overall academic accomplishments our teams achieve on an annual basis. The University’s strong academic emphasis, coupled with the dedicated efforts of the student athletes, allows the Athletics Department to continually post high marks in the classroom. The academic climate offered at SUU enables the institution to attract and retain high quality student athletes with sound character and a clear understanding of personal responsibility. Thunderbird Athletics was recently rewarded by its fellow institutions with an unprecedented, fourth consecutive Mid-Continent Conference Sportsmanship Award, setting a new standard by which all institutions are now measured. Southern Utah is fortunate to have a great relationship with the community, bringing new meaning to the term, “campus community.” Cedar City residents are hospitable, friendly and eager to serve, creating an ideal setting for personal growth. Thunderbird student athletes readily accept their responsibility of role models and spent countless hours in the local schools mentoring children. Southern Utah University’s commitment to athletics is manifest in its first class athletic facilities, providing the necessary amenities for a student athlete to achieve his/her athletic goals and compete at higher levels. Southern Utah University is an ideal place to achieve academic and athletic excellence and reach the high expectations we all have. Southern Utah University is one of the best locations to experience a true college atmosphere.

Southern Utah University is a comprehensive institution offering programs for students with many interests and goals. The University provides undergraduate liberal education in the arts, humanities and sciences; authorized professional work in teacher education, business and technology; and specialized training in vocational teacher education. SUU has been accorded a host of outstanding academic honors in recent years. Consumer Reports named the University among its Top Ten in its list of quality and value in colleges and universities in America for the second time in three years this past summer. The Princeton Review tabbed SUU as a Best Value Institution last spring, while U.S. News and World Report listed the University as one of America’s Best Colleges in 2007. The Princeton Review has also named SUU as one of its “Best In The West,” and Southern Utah’s website was named a top-10 site by the National Research Center for College and University Admissions. SUU students select their courses from departments and programs in the School of Business; College of Computing, Integrated Engineering and Technology; School of Continuing and Professional Studies; Beverley Taylor Sorenson College of Education and Human Development; College of Humanities and Social Sciences; Library; College of Performing and Visual Arts; College of Science; and College of Graduate Studies. More than 600 faculty and staff members serve SUU’s 7,516 undergraduate and graduate students. Academic programs in business, teacher education, industrial education and theatre arts have received wide acclaim for their excellence. Affiliated with the university are a number of cultural arts and performing groups which support the mission of SUU. SUU is also home to the Utah Shakespearean Festival with its Adams Memorial Theatre, based upon the original Globe Theatre; and the Randall Jones Theatre, one of the finest indoor theatres in the West. Southern Utah facilities are also used extensively during the month in June as home for the Utah Summer Games. Campus facilities range from the ivy-covered Old Main and Braithwaite Liberal Arts Center, built in 1898 and 1899; to the Dixie Leavitt Business Building; to the Sharwan Smith Center, a multi-purpose facility which houses the Centrum Arena – SUU’s basketball and gymnastics venue – as well as classrooms, the university’s student union, bookstore and various offices. The university opened a state-of-the-art library in 1996, while the Eccles Coliseum, the University’s football and track stadium, has undergone a complete renovation in the recent past, including new grandstands, office areas, a new press box and a new track. Another exciting development was the physical education complex, which serves the entire studentbody with state-of-the art athletic and recreational facilities. The newest additions on campus include the Emma Eccles Jones Teacher Education Building and the Carter Carillon Tower. The university also owns and operates a 1,000-acre farm in western Cedar Valley and a 3,700-acre ranch in Cedar Canyon.


Because of their proximity and grandeur and formal educational alliance with Southern Utah University, Zion National Park and Cedar Breaks National Monument are claimed by SUU students as part of their campus. Geology, life science and a variety of academic fields plan trips to take advantage of these national treasures in addition to Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, Capitol Reef and Great Basin National Parks, which are also close by. The University’s skiing classroom is at 11,300-foot Brian Head Ski Resort, less than an hour away, while the recreational opportunities offered by Lake Powell are less than two hours away. SUU has a history unique in the annals of American higher education. In 1897, the entire population of Cedar City, then a small pioneer town, engaged in the building of Old Main, the first building of the University. Beginning the project in mid-winter because of a harsh deadline imposed the the legislature, the men and women of the community donated materials, money and labor to complete the building on time. Today the university campus has grown to comprise 133 acres, landscaped with fountains, tall spruce and pine trees, plazas, statuary, latticed walkways and expansive lawns.
