Season Outlook

W

ith just one senior and nine newcomers on the roster, the 2011 season marks a fresh start for head coach Daniel Brizard and the Tennessee Tech soccer team. The Golden Eagles narrowly missed qualifying for the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament in 2010, one season after advancing all the way to the league championship game. It’s a return to prominence that Brizard is seeking in his second year, and one he hopes begins in preseason camp. “Last year, I was still getting to know the team in the preseason,” says Brizard, who came to Cookeville from an assistant position at LSU. “This year, I’m trying to integrate nine players into a team that already knows me and I know them.” In keeping with the theme of a fresh beginning, Tech Soccer Field underwent several renovation projects over the summer, including the installation of a new scoreboard, the shifting of the bleachers from the east side of the field to the west in order to enhance fan experience, and a leveling of the playing surface. More good news for Brizard is that the Golden Eagles return both their leading goal-scorer in junior forward Andrea Meloff and assists leader in junior midfielder Kerri Reid, as well as defensive stalwart and team captain Lindsey Reed, the squad’s only senior. The head coach will look to those players in particular to guide a team whose 2010 record doesn’t tell the whole story of its season — four of Tech’s 12 losses came in overtime. Meloff and Reid are just two members of a talented junior class that came of age for the Golden Eagles in 2010 as sophomores. Tech returns all five of its leading pointscorers this season — Meloff, Reid, Kris Cambron, Sarah Gawthrop and Jacquie Watkins — and all five are members of the junior class. With Reed the only senior on the roster, Brizard will lean heavily on his juniors for leadership in 2011. Beginning with home matches on Aug. 19 and Aug. 21, Tech will play a 20-match schedule which Brizard believes will be competitive while also giving his young squad a chance to grow and develop.

Stronger Than Ever n 2011

THE SCHEDULE

The Golden Eagles will play their first two regular-season matches in the friendly confines of Tech Soccer Field as they welcome in-state foes UT Chattanooga and Belmont to Cookeville for a FridaySunday set on Aug. 19 and 21. After that, however, Tech will embark on a seven-game road swing that will test the team’s mettle, taking them to East Tennessee State, UNC Asheville, Longwood, Radford and Middle Tennessee State, while also matching them against Louisiana Tech and New Mexico State at the Jacksonville State Tournament in Jacksonville, Ala. The Golden Eagles return home to host Lipscomb before opening OVC play on the road at Eastern Illinois and SIU Edwardsville. Tech Soccer Field will play host to four league foes (Eastern Kentucky, defending champion and preseason favorite Morehead State, Murray State and Austin Peay) while the Golden Eagles will travel to Jacksonville State and close the season with a road swing to UT Martin and Southeast Missouri. “This is a challenging, well-balanced schedule for what we are trying to accomplish,” Brizard said. “None of these opponents stands out as a powerhouse but there are no easy teams on the schedule, either. There are a lot of winnable matches, but every time we play it will be very competitive.” The Golden Eagles were picked to finish ninth out of 10 teams this season in OVC preseason polling. TTU will play nine conference matches for the first time this season as SIU Edwardsville enters its first season as a full member of the conference.

FORWARDS

At the front of their attack, the Golden Eagles welcome back Andrea Meloff, their leading scorer in 2010, as well as sophomore Ellie Iaciofano, the recipient of the team’s Most Improved award a season ago. Meloff scored five goals in 2010, including two game-winners, while also dishing out an assist and posting the squad’s highest shot percentage at .278. Iaciofano was responsible for distributing two assists as a freshman. Brizard expects big things from both players, and charges them with helping lead an increase in goal production in the upcoming season. Incoming freshman Amanda Koch will give Tech depth up front as well as bring versatility to fill in at other positions.

Junior forward Andrea Meloff

MIDFIELDERS

The central midfield position will be one of the Golden Eagles’ strongest and deepest, anchored by 2010 All-OVC second team selection Kerri Reid. Reid scored two goals and delivered three assists a season ago while seeing more minutes than anyone on the team. With Tech’s depth in the midfield this season, however, Brizard says he hopes to be able to give Reid more frequent rests. “She had to play a lot of minutes last year, and we hope to be able to give her more of a break this season,” he says. “We need her to sustain her competitive spirit and energy throughout the season.”

Sophomore Shannon Rountree and junior Jacquie Watkins return and will join Reid as the squad’s featured attacking midfielders. The Golden Eagles will look to Watkins to follow up on a strong 2010 season in which she scored a goal and contributed two assists. Rountree is known for her intensity and high-energy attitude. On the wings, Tech will look to juniors Kris Cambron and Sarah Gawthrop, both of whom contributed two goals each last season. Gawthrop expects to settle back in to her natural wing position this season after being somewhat of a positional journeywoman in 2010 due to injuries. Cambron is fresh off a summer in which she played with Cincinnati’s Hammer FC of the Women’s Premier Soccer League. Junior Emily Homan is also expected to contribute at the wing after a knee injury forced her to take a medical redshirt in 2010. Midfield will be the area of most opportunity for Tech’s nine incoming freshmen this season. Brizard expects Paige Himebaugh and Chelsea Ladd to compete for a holding mid position while Kelsey McGohan should provide quality minutes as an attacking midfielder. Sophomore Jessica Wilson and incoming freshman Katie Phillips bring added depth to the midfield.

DEFENDERS

Junior defender Leigh Heffner

The Golden Eagles will have two leaders in the backfield in junior Leigh Heffner, who joined Reid as an All-OVC second-team selection last season, and Lindsey Reed, the team’s only senior. “We’re going to look to them to anchor our defense,” Brizard said. “They are both great kids off the field, and they make us more experienced in the back than we are at some of other positions.” Sophomore Taylor Hicks, a converted forward, will play left back after stepping into the position and performing well a season ago. At right back, Tech will look to junior Julie Thompson, who played in 13 of 17 games last season despite battling an ankle injury. This year, Brizard wants Thompson to return to form and solidify herself in the right back position. Incoming freshmen Courtney Dedrick, Hayley Morton and Brooklyn Kimball will also be expected to contribute minutes on the back line.

GOALKEEPERS

As a freshman in 2010, Becca Toler quickly emerged as the Golden Eagles’ starting goalkeeper. Coming off a strong summer of training that included a successful tryout with the USA Deaf Soccer Women’s team, she will be Tech’s go-to athlete in the net once again this season. She allowed 23 goals in nearly 1,200 minutes last fall and saved 75.8 percent of shots while pitching two shutouts. When Toler was in net, Tech posted a 4-7-1 record compared to an 0-5 mark when she did not play. Sophomore goalkeeper Becca Toler

The Ohio Valley Conference

From left: Beth DeBauche, Ohio Valley Conference Commissioner; Brad Walker, Associate Commissioner/Chief Operating Officer; Jennifer Gibbs, Assistant Commissioner for Championships; Kyle Schwartz, Assistant Commissioner for Media Relations; Brian Pulley, Assistant Commissioner for External Affairs; Matthew Banker, Assistant Commissioner for Institutional Services; Heather Brown, Director of Media Relations. Entering its 64th year, the Ohio Valley Conference continues to build on the success that has made it the nation’s eighth-oldest NCAA Division I conference. In May 2011 the Conference expanded for the second time in four years, adding Belmont University which will begin competition in the 2012-13 academic year. The addition of Belmont will give the OVC 12 members, the most the league has had at one time in its illustrious history. The move added a second team in the city of Nashville and was the first addition to the league since Southern Illinois University Edwardsville joined in 2008. SIUE will begin regular season competition this season (2011-12) and be eligible for postseason the same year Belmont joins the league. The 2009-10 school year saw a change in leadership as Beth DeBauche was named the seventh full-time Commissioner in league history on July 28. She is currently one of just five females to be the head of a Division I conference, and one of just eight to lead a Division I conference all-time. The last three commissioners of the OVC have moved onto jobs as the commissioner of the Big Ten, Big 12 and the Mid-American Conferences. The OVC’s proud past dates back to 1948, but seeds for the new league were actually planted in 1941. Discussions were put on hold by World War II but reemerged Feb. 27-28, 1948 at the Kentucky Hotel in Louisville as Morehead State, Louisville and Evansville merged to form the OVC. Tennessee Tech joined the OVC the following year. In the 1950s, the OVC became a pioneer on a much more significant scale socially, breaking racial barriers to providde educational and athletic opportunities to African-Americans. Through the past 63 years, 15 teams have won or shared the league’s football title. The list is led by Eastern Kentucky, winner of 20 outright or shared football crowns, including both the 2007 and 2008 championships. Former member Middle Tennessee is next with 11 titles, followed by Tennessee Tech with nine. The first Division I-AA/FCS football playoff was held in 1978 with only four teams, which is the only year through present day that the OVC did not field a playoff representative. In the late 1970s, women’s athletics began somewhat of a rebirth on the national scene as the NCAA began sponsoring and marketing women’s sports. Recognizing the need to provide increased opportunities for female athletes, the OVC established women’s championships in the sports of basketball, tennis and track in 1977, with cross country and volleyball added over the next four years. Those sports were

48

initially governed by the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW), but the overall strength of women’s programs in the league was demonstrated by the automatic bids the OVC instantly received when the NCAA became the governing body in 1982. The playing field is not the only place where OVC athletes are working hard. The league also recognizes excellence in the classroom. Six Scholar-Athlete Awards are presented yearly to male and female athletes, while others are commended for their academic success by being Medal of Honor recipients or earning a spot on the Commissioner’s Honor Roll. Additionally, the league annually presents one institutional Academic Achievement Award, as well as separate team awards in each Conference-sponsored sport. Since the College Sports Information Directors of American (CoSIDA) Academic All-America program began, the Ohio Valley Conference has had 202 student-athletes honored with the award, including 35 over the last three years. Through the early years of the league, administrators wrestled with fan behavior due to the close proximity of the Conference members and the intense rivalries which developed. Just as it did decades ago, the OVC took the leadership role on what has become a national issue. In 1995, the OVC

Stronger Than Ever n 2011

implemented a first-of-its-kind “Sportsmanship Statement,” a policy which promotes principles of fair play, ethical conduct and respect for one’s opponent. The statement has become a model for others to follow across the nation, and has answered the challenge of the NCAA Presidents Commission to improve sportsmanship in collegiate athletics. Additionally, the OVC annually presents the Steve Hamilton Sportsmanship Award, in honor of the former Morehead State student-athlete, coach and athletics director, to a junior or senior student-athlete with significant athletic contributions who best exemplifies the characteristics of sportsmanship and citizenship. Most recently, the Conference has also implemented the OVC Institutional and Team Sportsmanship Awards, which are presented to one institution and 18 sportspecific teams voted by their peers to have best exhibited the standards of sportsmanship and ethical conduct as outlined by the OVC and NCAA. The vision of leadership demonstrated by the Founding Fathers in 1948 remains alive today as the Ohio Valley Conference prepares for the future. One example is in regard to the current trend in collegiate athletics administration for increased involvement of university presidents in setting policies and making rules. The presidents of OVC institutions, however, have always governed the Conference, long before presidential governance became a national theme. The Ohio Valley Conference sponsors the following sports: baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis and track for men, and basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track and volleyball for women. In addition, the OVC also sponsors the combined men’s and women’s sport of rifle. Now in its seventh decade of competition, the Ohio Valley Conference has grown significantly from its humble beginnings while increasing the number of athletics opportunities it provides for students. Current league representatives include charter members Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State University and Murray State University, along with Austin Peay State University, Eastern Illinois University, Jacksonville State University, Southeast Missouri State University, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Tennessee State University, Tennessee Technological University and the University of Tennessee at Martin. Belmont University will become the league’s 12th member on July 1, 2012.

here's no question Tennessee Tech University is a great place to get an education. And Cookeville is a great college town. The largest micropolitan area in Tennessee and one of the top 40 micropolitan areas in the nation, Cookeville has consistently been rated among the top 10 most affordable regions in the nation.

Cookeville boasts a mild climate, with an average temperature of 57 and four distinct seasons. Located within a day's drive of 75 percent of the nation's population, Cookeville is just off Interstate 40, which runs from the east coast to California. City life is easily accessible, as well, because Cookeville is situated within 100 miles of Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga — three of Tennessee's major metropolitan areas. The seat of Putnam County, Cookeville is the heart of a three-county alliance known as the Highlands, which centers Tennessee's 14-county Upper Cumberland region. We have hundreds of acres of unspoiled nature — from championship golf courses to natural preserves, state parks and top-rated lakes — close to home. There's plenty of nature inside the city limits, too; the City of Cookeville tends nine parks, including Cane Creek Park, a 262-acre natural area with a 56-acre lake. And while Cookeville is a relatively small town, we have no lack of culture. We are one of the smallest cities in the U.S. with a full-blown symphony orchestra, and our area attracts visual artists and craftspeople from across the nation, thanks to the Appalachian Center for Craft, a satellite campus of TTU. Drama also takes center stage here, with the 456-seat Cookeville Performing Arts Center cranking out productions year-round, including the award-winning Drama Center Backstage series. Cookeville is home to three museums — the Cookeville Depot Museum, the Cookeville History Museum and the Cookeville Children's Museum — and a year-round slate of events, including regular excursion trains and the annual Fall FunFest. A walkable downtown shopping district and an impressive roster of national chain stores give the retail segment a small-town feel with big-city convenience. Add to that our more than 100 restaurants and 1,400 hotel rooms, and you'll quickly see that Cookeville offers something for everyone.

u One of the “Top Southern Public Universities” by U.S. News & World Report u One of the “Best Southeastern Universities” and “America’s Best College Values” by The Princeton Review u Among “America’s 100 Best College Buys” by Institutional Research and Evaluations, Inc. Where Quality Counts

For nearly 100 years, Tennessee Tech has served the various needs of the region, the state and beyond. Not only is Tech renowned as a fine institution of higher education, it also serves as a public resource center and encourages scholarly research and creative activity by its faculty and students. Today, Tech makes a number of contributions to economic development locally, regionally and nationally. Tech’s 65,000-plus alumni occupy positions of leadership in education, business, industry, government and public service. Tennessee Tech is widely known as an institution noted for its academic quality -- an institution where the energies of the faculty, staff and students are devoted to ensuring that the university’s quality is maintained and enhanced. The university’s vision is guided by the “T.E.C.H.” framework — technological leadership, enrollment growth, a caring campus, and high quality. The university is divided into seven academic divisions offering 44 programs of study leading to the bachelor’s degree and 20 programs of study at the graduate level. More than 75 percent of the 370 full-time faculty members hold doctoral degrees. Considered one of the most picturesque campuses in the South -and one of the safest -- the buildings carry an attractive Georgian style of architecture that lends the Tech campus an Ivy-league character. Tech was established in 1915 as Tennessee Polytechnic Institute, located on the site of its forerunner, Dixie College. TPI gained

Why we're the Golden Eagles

university status in 1965, reflecting the institution’s role as a multipurpose, state-supported university. Tech’s current enrollment continues to include students from almost all 95 Tennessee counties, along with students from more than 40 other states and about 40 foreign countries.

Campus Life

Tennessee Tech students know that there is a lot more to college life than what goes on in the classroom. Nearly 200 student organizations on campus offer activities ranging from academic, athletic, cultural, political, community-oriented, social to spiritual. At Tech, it’s easy to get involved and make friends. Campus recreation coordinates 11 intramural and club sports: basketball, bowling, flag football, golf, racquetball, rugby, soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball and wrestling. The Fitness Center is a free, full-service health club for students. It houses a fully equipped weight room, 25-meter indoor pool, cardiovascular equipment and an indoor track. Tech is also a center for the arts, presenting concerts, theatre productions, lectures, dance performances, films, workshops, demonstrations and art exhibits each year. And, of course there’s always an athletics event to attend. Tennessee Tech’s athletic teams compete in the Ohio Valley Conference for 14 sports on the NCAA Division I level, and students can attend all regular season athletic events absolutely free!

The Tennessee Tech Athletic Department unveiled a new brand on Aug. 31, 2006, with an all-new set of logos for the Golden Eagles. The brand is new, but the tradition remains -the name Golden Eagles. How did TTU adopt the name? In the first quarter of this century, Tennessee Polytechnic Institute was a tiny school, located in the rugged, mountainous Upper Cumberland region where Golden Eagles were plentiful, soaring above the lush, upland forests. It's easy to understand how those early students and faculty could narrow their choices for their athletic team's nicknames to "Golden Eagles" or "Mountaineers." On February 14, 1925, the nickname "Golden Eagles " was officially adopted. The school newspaper, The Oracle, printed a story that outlined the efforts of a committee to suggest several possible nicknames to Athletic Association members for their consideration. The two most popular names were "Golden Eagles" and "Mountaineers," and the association, by a vote of 139-18, proudly declared its preference. It wasn't until 27 years later that a tangible mascot found its way to the campus. Several Tech

students braved a driving night rainstorm to pilfer a huge block-tin eagle statue from the charred ruins of a resort hotel in Monteagle. They painted the creature - with a wingspan of over six feet - a glistening gold, and suspended it from the rafter for public inspection at the following day's basketball game in Memorial Gym. Then-Governor Frank G. Clement, a lifelong friend of the hotel owner, was in Cookeville to speak . He worked out a compromise between his friend and the school students, who wanted to retain the eagle as their mascot. Over the years, a wide variety of artwork and drawings have been used to represent the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles. Some of those include a drawing which appeared in media guides in the mid 1970s, and a cartoon-style mascots in the early 1980s that was dubbed ‘the purple chicken” by Tech students.

University of Maine 1991

v Director of Athletics

Mark Wilson’s first seven years as Director of Athletics at Tennessee Tech have been highlighted by vision, energy, and enthusiasm. Those factors have facilitated growth and excellence in all areas and have placed the focus on generating a better student-athlete experience. Wilson recently completed an appointment on the NCAA Leadership Council, a position which gave the Ohio Valley Conference, TTU and Wilson a voice in a variety of strategic decisions that can affect intercollegiate athletics. Wilson, 42, has led Athletics to several milestone accomplishments during his first seven years, including enhanced facilities and fund raising, high profile staff additions, and compliance and academic success. Under Wilson’s guidance, the program has continued to focus on the academic success of its student-athletes, with soaring numbers each semester on the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll. Tech’s studentathletes have achieved their highest overall combined semester GPAs. Wilson also developed a strategic plan for Tech’s athletic facilities and has already seen some of those plans become reality. During the past four years Tech has completed several construction projects to athletic facilities, including resurfacing the outdoor tennis courts, a new natural grass practice field, installation of new turf in Tucker Stadium, renovating the running track, renovating the football offices, meeting rooms and locker rooms, and new lights at Tucker Stadium. Athletics opened a spacious, new basketball office complex in Eblen Center and in the spring held a Grand Opening on the new Athletic Performance Center on the western edge of campus (see pages 2-3). Additional building plans call for a new student-athlete center. Another step achieved under Wilson’s direction has been increased fund raising and development efforts with the goal of providing the necessary resources for Tech’s studentathletes, coaches and staff. All of those accomplishments

have come while the department has continued to stay focused on compliance with all NCAA rules and regulations. Wilson was named Director of Athletics on July 1, 2004. He came to Tennessee Tech from Ohio University. Since his first day at Tech, Wilson has made rapid and steady progress. He began by restructuring the department and implemented plans for a better student-athlete experience. In addition, athletics launched a dynamic new website, gained NCAA certification and was found in complete compliance, created a far-reaching “WIN” program for academic success, opened an entertaining and popular Tailgate Park, and started plans for two capital projects. Before going to Ohio, Mark served as the Director of Athletic Marketing for the University of Massachusetts. He also worked as a graduate assistant in the UMass athletic department and interned with the Northwestern University ticketing and marketing departments. Wilson received his bachelor’s degree in 1991 from the University of Maine in physical education and health, and earned his master’s in sports management from the University of Massachusetts in 1994. Mark has two daughters, Katey (16) and Meaghan (11).

JASITT

Penn State University,1978

v Assistant Athletics Director for Academics and Student Welfare

Dr. Lance Jasitt serves as Assistant Athletics Director for Academics and Student Welfare. He has served in compliance and administrative operations roles in the Tech Athletics Department since 1998. Dr. Jasitt plays a key role in the academic success of each of Tech’s varsity student-athletes, managers, and graduate assistants. His primary goals are to provide guidance and academic resources to permit student-athletes to maintain their academic eligibility under NCAA rules and to progress to graduation. In this process, Dr. Jasitt serves as a primary liaison between coaches and faculty. A detail-oriented person and a diligent worker, Dr. Jasitt has developed a solid understanding of the operations of the Athletics Department, the staff and the needs of its student-athletes. In addition to his administrative role within Athletics, Dr. Jasitt is also highly involved in promoting reading and literacy at all age levels. He was the 2008-09 president of the TTU Council of the International Reading Association and is still actively involved in that organization. He also has served on the President’s Commission on the Status of Women for seven years. Raised in York, Pa., he earned a bachelor’s degree from Penn State University in 1978 and added a master’s in public administration from Valdosta State University in 1987. In 1993, he received a master’s degree in education from Old Dominion University and added a Ph.D. in literacy education from Tennessee Tech in 2004. Dr. Jasitt is a former Commander in the U.S. Navy. His wife of 30 years, Donna White Jasitt, is a former Captain in the U.S. Navy Reserve. They have two children, Ian and Meagan. Ian recently received his second degree from Tech, this one in Environmental Geology. Meagan is a senior Pre-Physical Therapy major at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

The “WIN” program: Work Intensely Now

The WIN Program was implemented in the fall semester of 2004 to provide additional support for freshmen and student-athletes whose general academic progress places them at risk for maintaining eligibility and graduating. The program involves the student-athlete, coach(es), academic advisor, tutors, and others to build academic skills for success. Participation in the program is primarily based on grades, and coaches or the academic advisor may recommend additional participation at any time. All incoming freshmen meet at least one time per week with their coach to discuss academic progress and needs as well as time management and study skill techniques. Other aspects of the program include monitored study hours, tutoring, and study skills workshops.

Academic Support

Winning in the Classroom Tennessee Tech’s commitment to its student-athletes is evident. The support personnel and resources available provide Golden Eagle student-athletes with the tools needed for success. The success of Tennessee Tech University’s athletic teams is tied closely to the academic progress of each student-athlete, and the academic performance of each Tech student-athlete is closely monitored by the coaching staff as well as an experienced staff in Academic Services. Tech’s student-athletes continue to excel in the classroom. Each semester, the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll pays tribute to more than 200 students in athletics, including athletes, trainers, managers and cheerleaders, and the overall GPA of the department has climbed steeply in the past seven semesters. Student-athletes are the most visible component of a university, entertaining thousands of fans, students, alumni, family and friends. Their athletic abilities and achievements are a focus for national attention, as athletic events not only bring back faithful alumni, but serve as a welcome mat to the university for potential new students. Student-athletes devote many hours to practice, conditioning and training in an effort to be the best they can be. These hours are not required by non-athletes in the student body, and these extra demands can compete with academics for the student-athlete’s time and energy. The Tech Athletics Department works to provide help with course content (through tutors and monitored study hours) as well as with time management and study skills and any other academic support services that will allow student-athletes to maximize their academic potential.

Chip

PUGH

v Head Strength and Conditioning Coach Ohio, 2000

Chip Pugh is in his fifth year as Tennessee Tech’s strength and conditioning head coach. He oversees the physical development of student-athletes in all 14 sports, providing support in building toward championships. Pugh served three years in the same position at Winthrop University where he created and developed a highly successful strength and conditioning program that helped win 12 conference championships. An alumnus of Ohio University, he was an offensive lineman on the football team while earning a bachelor’s degree in sport industry and a master’s degree in physical education. Pugh believes that the qualities that athletes can develop in strength and conditioning will not only aid in their athletic development, but will also help them build quality character components necessary for life. A native of Parkersburg, W. Va., he began his coaching career at his alma mater as an assistant strength and conditioning coach where he primarily worked with men’s and women’s track, men’s and

women’s swimming, and women’s soccer. He also assisted coach Ethan Reeve, currently the head strength and conditioning coach at Wake Forest, with football while at Ohio. After leaving Ohio University he became the head strength and conditioning coach for football at Marietta (Ohio) College, where he also worked as an assistant football coach. Additionally, during his two years at Marietta College he also served as a campus minister to the college. Pugh is a certified member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association and the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches’ Association. He also holds the Club Coach certification through USA Weightlifting. He is a Level-I certified CrossFit trainer and conducts personal training classes open to the public using the CrossFit methods. Chip and his wife, the former Nicole Carey, were married July 29, 2000. They live in Cookeville, where they are active in sprint triathlons and CrossFit.

Strength and Conditioning Development of Core Strength Imagine the body is a 3-link chain with the head and arms being one link, the torso/trunk being the second link and the legs being the third link. If the core link (trunk/torso) is weak or inflexible, there is little chance of maximizing potential because all body movement stems from the core. Train using ground-based, multi-joint lifting versus machine lifting Most athletes participate in stand up power sports using many muscle groups at once. The emphasis of training should be on total body athleticism and flexibility rather than having body weight supported by a machine and forcing isolation of just one muscle group. By incorporating ground-based lifts and exercises that focus on the total body, the athlete becomes more prepared to use their whole body in sport skills. Train for Power (which results in increased speed) Power = (Mass Moved x Distance)/time. The less time it takes to move a mass a certain distance, the higher the output. As seen in the above formula, an increase in speed of movements results in an increase in power.

By taking advantage of expert instruction, Golden Eagle student-athletes are afforded every opportunity to maximize their athletic potential

Assistant Strength Coaches

Train Athleticism Many factors are included in athleticism: strength, power, speed, agility, flexibility, coordination, fitness level and mental toughness are just a few. It is the goal to maximize an athlete’s overall athleticism. Rich Froning Train as a Team When teams train together, it provides another opportunity to develop chemistry, teamwork, leadership skills and a competitive environment. Within this competitive environment, teams can work on mental toughness, attacking the weights and maintaining a positive attitude. By enabling athletes to work on these things as a team, it helps to promote a stronger sense of unity, thus making it harder to “fold” under pressure. Make workouts short and intense There are many philosophies on how to get athletes stronger, faster and more flexible. But, when combined, these philosophies have the same three underlying principles: a) The workouts should be highly organized b) The workouts should be short in duration c) The workouts should be extremely intense The following are recommendations for athletes concerning days and times of strength trainig (including warmups): * In-season: 3 days / week; 30-40 minutes/workout * Post-season: 3-4 days / week; 45-60 minutes/workout * Pre-season: 4 days / week; 50-60 minutes/workout
