Season Outlook

Leadership, depth to be keys for Golden Eagles in 2012 Depth looks to be the key ingredient for coach Tory Acheson’s Tennessee Tech softball team in the 2012 campaign as the Golden Eagles bid for their fifth Ohio Valley Conference regular-season championship in the last 11 years. The squad returns 13 players from a year ago, providing much-needed experience and leadership for this season. “All in all, we are much deeper,” Acheson said. “I think we’ve had much more competition at each position, and that has really pushed our level of work and effort to a higher level than it has been in the past couple of years.” The following is a position-by-position outlook on the 2012 Golden Eagles:

IN THE CIRCLE “I feel that we have quality depth in our pitching rotation this year,” Acheson said. “I think all five of our pitchers can be successful and will see time.” Senior Holly Thomas will bear the title of ace for the Golden Eagles in her fourth season in the circle. Her 16 victories and 131 strikeouts a year ago have earned her a spot on the College Sports Madness Preseason All-OVC team. Thomas will share the rotation with fellow East Tennessean Erica Tuck. “Holly and Erica have done a very good job and those two will definitely be getting some innings,” Acheson said.

A pair of returnees, Claudia Harke and Whitney Cummings will also see time in the circle, with Cummings serving the role of stopper/closer. “Claudia Harke has had some back issues, so we’re not sure when she’ll be ready to get back into things. Cummings will be filling the closer/stopper role. Freshman Taylor Ketchum is also expected to compete for playing time.” BEHIND THE DISH The off-season has also seen competition for the starting role behind the plate. Sophomore Kendall Hooper returns the most experience after appearing in 20 games in her freshman campaign, but fellow sophomore Emma Woo and freshman Mekenzie Weems have also made an impact this spring. “Right now Kendall is the starter,” Acheson said. “Emma and Mekenzie have done very well. I don’t think it’s clear-cut absolute that any one of them is the full-time starter yet.” Acheson is looking for the right candidate to provide leadership on the field. “Kendall’s leadership and communication is a key factor for our team defense,” he said. “Emma and Mekenzie played well this fall, but they have to step up their leadership to challenge Kendall.” ON THE RIGHT SIDE Chanelle Spalding will be the starter at first base for the Golden Eagles, as she started 47 games there a year ago. “Chanelle has had a very productive spring semester so far,” Acheson said. “She’s been swinging the bat well and she’s providing a lot of leadership and communication in the infield.” Senior Whitney Cummings may also see time at first, but will be utilized mainly as a designated player and short-outing pitcher. A transfer sophomore from Yavapai College, Cassie Garrett has made an instant impact in the infield and has earned the starting job at second base. “Cassie just joined us in January and she has really gotten off to a very good start,” Acheson said. “She’s still a work in progress as far as learning all the things we do and all the parts of the defense that run through that position.” Tyler Templet will continue to serve as a pinch runner, but may also see time at second. “Tyler has done a great job and provided solid leadership,” Acheson said. ON THE LEFT SIDE Back from an injury, senior Samantha Everett will start at shortstop for the Golden Eagles. “She’s had a productive spring and she gives us consistency at that position that we really need,” Acheson said. “She’s been swinging the bat pretty well in practice, so we look for her to contribute at the plate as well.” Freshman Hannah Eldridge will serve as the backup at shortstop as she continues to develop her game. “Hannah has a tremendous future for us,” Acheson said. “The only thing she’s lacking right now is the experience.” With her twin sister across the diamond, Brittney Spalding will start at third base, but has received some competition

from junior transfer Emily Burch. “I’m completely comfortable with either Brittney or Emily playing,” Acheson said. “Brittney gives us a little more leadership and a little more explosiveness.” A very good hitter, Burch could be utilized as a pinch-hitter when she isn’t filling a role in the field. Acheson said Burch could play at either third base or shortstop if needed. ROAMING THE OUTFIELD From the dirt to the fence, the Golden Eagles will have the outfield covered very well this season. Freshman Angi Sakamoto will get the starting nod in left field as Acheson has been very impressed by what she’s able to do with her glove. “Angi has tremendous upside,” he said. “She has a chance to be a very special player.” One of the most versatile weapons in the Golden Eagle arsenal is sophomore Melody Christian (shown in photo, left), who will be anchoring the outfield this season. Having her speed and bat in the lineup will be key as Christian will be the starter in center field. “I think this is the perfect position for her defensively,” Acheson said. “It puts her in a position where we can take advantage of her tremendous athletic ability. She’s got great range and runs down balls that most people wouldn’t dream of getting to.” Her leadership is one of the many assets Melody brings to the table. “She’s really taking charge and becoming the field general for the outfield and it’s very exciting to see,” Acheson said. “You can count on seeing her in centerfield from now on. There’s no discussion about that.” Senior Brooke Basten has earned the starting position in right field. “She’s been swinging he bat exceptionally well and she’s another one who has been providing us with a lot of intangibles,” Acheson said. “Her leadership, experience and desire are all tremendous assets for us.” Adding depth in the outfield, sophomore Kayla Floyd is also in the picture. “She’s basically our fourth outfielder right now,” Acheson said. “Offensively, her speed and short game really create havoc for the opposition and I would be completely comfortable with her stepping into the starting lineup if something happens.” Floyd will be competing for playing time at any of the outfield positions. Red-shirt freshman Christian Gibbs will also serve as a backup in the outfield and may see time at either left or center field, and may be utilized as a pinch runner in certain situations. DESIGNATED PLAYER With seven homeruns and 23 RBIs last season, senior Whitney Cummings looks to play the role of designated player for the Golden Eagles. “We’re excited to see her hitting the ball the way we think she’s capable of,” Acheson said. “She’s got enough experience now that we hope she’ll be the clutch performer we need her to be.” Emily Burch and Kayla Floyd may also be utilized as designated players depending on the situation.

mature into a contender for both the OVC regular season title and return to the league’s tournament and make a run for the crown. Acheson has displayed his wealth of knowledge as well as an unprecedented work ethic in order to improve the Tech program — and its student-athletes — each and every day. With 760 career wins to his name, Acheson knows what it takes to go above and beyond expectations and to maintain high standards. He takes pride in everything his team does, both on and off the field, as he ensures his teams also stay committed to academics and community service. Known for his winning traditions on the field, Acheson has also shown his off-the-field character time and time again. He is a firm believer in helping the community, and each year his team takes part in several community service projects ranging from helping with food

drives to building a new home with Habitat for Humanity. Acheson’s commitment to academics is evident annually as twice in the past four years his squad was awarded the National Fastpitch Coaches Association highest academic honor for Division I. Tech softball ranked first on the list of the “Girls Got Game” Top Ten All-Academic Teams with a team GPA of 3.540 in 2008, and last year raised that to an incredible 3.61 mark. His 2009 squad also displayed academic prowess, ranking fourth in the nation with a 3.509 team GPA, and his 2010 team also cracked the top-10 ranking seventh in team GPA with a mark of 3.514. That sensational performance in the classroom earned the team a proclamation and recognition from the State of Tennessee House of Representative and Senate.

Acheson has coached five CoSIDA Academic All-Americans and 12 Academic All-District players. He has also had 125 players named to the OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll, which is presented annually to student-athletes who have at least a 3.25 GPA. Prior to his arrival at Tech, Acheson was head coach at Wisconsin-Parkside and had 13 players named All-American. His teams were named an Academic Top Ten Team all six of his seasons at Parkside by the NFCA and ranked as high as third in Division II in 1997. Acheson has a record of 480-320-1 at Tennessee Tech and is only the fourth coach in Tech athletics history with 400 career wins. As a two-time OVC Coach of the Year (2003 and 2006), he has led the Golden Eagles to four regular season titles as well as five OVC tournament championships. His teams have also participated in an NCAA play-in game

in 2001, and played four times in the NCAA Regionals (Texas 2003, Georgia 2005, Knoxville 2006, Tuscaloosa 2007). Since his arrival, the Golden Eagles have used a combination of strong non-conference competition and a tough league schedule to be a force at the national level annually. Winning has been something Acheson has done wherever he has been. In 1995, Acheson led Parkside to its first NCAA Division II national tournament where the Rangers finished fourth. The season included an upset win over Division I Top 10 foe Nebraska. The following year, his team was ranked number one in the national Divi-

8

sion II polls from the second week until the final poll. That team finished 64-6-1 overall, won the program’s first Great Lakes Valley Conference title and earned a return trip to the NCAA tournament where it claimed seventh place. In 1997, Parkside reached new heights under Acheson, compiling its second-straight 60-win season (6210), repeated as GLVC champs and

placed second in the national tournament. In 1998, his team compiled a 40-20 overall record, including a 22-7 mark in conference match-ups, while playing only seven home games. In addition to his work on the field, Tory is a frequent speaker at camps and clinics throughout the Midwest and Southeast, including the NCAA Yes Clinic at the NCAA national championships. He has been involved with player development through summer camps and clinics, reaching more than 1,000 young players each year. A native of Dubuque, Iowa, Tory earned both his bachelor’s degree in secondary education and his master’s degree from UW-Milwaukee. After nine seasons as head softball coach at Whitnall (Wis.) High School, he was named softball coach at Parkside in 1993. He also served as facilities/ program manager for the athletic department as well as associate professor for five years. Acheson and his staff take great pride in their facilities, which they have made improvement to every season. Last year, he built an obstacle course for use by student-athletes to hone their physical skills and fitness. He also recycled seats removed from the Hooper Eblen Center and attached them to the bleachers at the softball field to provide a more comfortable seating area for fans. Other renovations from years past include two decks atop either dugout that provide better viewing areas for patrons, and a seating deck in left field. Tory’s wife, Terry, has served as his assistant coach throughout his career. The couple has one grown son, Chuck, who assists in variuos aspects of the softball program.

Mark

WILSON

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 student-athletes, 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.

Dr. Lance

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 studentathletes. 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.

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.

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. Dan Bailey 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

T

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.

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 volley-

ball added over the next four years. Those sports were 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

The Ohio Valley Conference 215 Centerview Drive, Suite 115 Brentwood, Tenn. 37027 (615) 371-1698 www.ovcsports.com

role on what has become a national issue. In 1995, the OVC 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.
