2011 Season Preview

New Season, Familiar Faces Eleven upperclassmen look to put Tech back atop the OVC When one looks over the history of the Tennessee Tech softball program, a few things stand out. It could be the consistent play of the Tech teams year-in and year-out. It could be the four appearances in the NCAA Tournament and of course it could be head coach Tory Acheson returning for his 13th season at the helm. Acheson brings with him into the 2011 season an experienced group of players including six seniors and five juniors in a 24-player roster. To put things in perspective, during the previous two seasons the Golden Eagles have featured only one senior since 2009. “We’re hoping to cash in on the hard fought experiences over the last few seasons,” head coach Tory Acheson said. “We will rely on some established veterans to lead us back to the top of the OVC.”

seasons of experience to the outfield corps. She brings a solid glove to the table as she has committed only two errors in 87 games played. Returning seniors Abbey Hayes and Anna Zdroik will also earn some time in the outfield. Joining this experienced group will be three newcomers, junior Tabitha McNew and freshmen Tyler Templet and Kayla Floyd. Each of these players will have the opportunity to show what they can provide to the team on the field.

In the Infield Tennessee Tech’s infield will feature a different array of talent anchored by senior Lacie Coquerille.

Lacie Coquerille

In the Outfield Running around in the outfield this season, Tech fans will see a combination of some familiar and not so familiar faces. Senior Kaleigh Gates returns for her fourth installment as a member of the Golden Eagles and will be looked too provide leadership as she takes over the centerfield duties. Junior Jordan Leff returns for her third season after being named the team’s Best Defensive Outfielder for the second straight season and will shore things up in left field.

Kaleigh Gates

“We expect to see a veteran group in the outfield with five players competing for a spot,” Acheson said. “We’re counting on our outfield play to be a strength for us.” Junior Brooke Basten brings an additional two

“The infield looks to be very solid,” Acheson said. “Getting Lacie back will improve the team’s consistency and the capabilities in the infield.” Twice voted the team’s Most Valuable Player and the Best Defensive Infielder, Coquerille returns for her senior season on the heels of another fine season at second base. During her junior campaign, Coquerille recorded 39 hits and scored 21 runs while maintaining a .277 batting average. She backed that up with another solid performance in the field as she committed only one error while holding a .995 fielding percentage. Tech also welcomes back a pair of members of the 2010 OVC all-newcomer team in Melody Christian and Chanelle Spalding to take the reigns at the corners.

2011 Season Preview Melody Christian

“Callie is poised to have a strong senior campaign,” Acheson said. “She has worked hard in the offseason and we’ll be looking for her to provide offensively.” Freshmen Kendall Hooper and Emma Woo will shore up Tech’s battery throughout the season. “We have two strong freshmen behind Callie in Emma and Kendall,” Acheson said. “Callie won’t be needed to play every inning of every game, but we know that she is capable of doing that if we need her to.”

Holly Thomas

Catcher Senior Callie Schmidt returns for her final season behind the plate. Named TTU’s Most Improved Player a season ago, Schmidt was one of two Golden Eagles who played in every game last season and maintained a steady .282 batting average. While helping to keep the opponent power hitters in check last season, Schmidt provided quite a bit of power when her turn came as she drove in a team-high 42 runs and knocked nine pitches over the fence. Schmidt’s defense also stood out as she only made six errors for a .984 fielding percentage.

2011 Season Preview

Christian put up great numbers during her freshman campaign. Leading the team with a .328 batting average, she recorded a team-high 62 hits and scored a team-leading 32 runs. She also paced the Golden Eagles on the base paths posting 16 stolen bases in 18 attempts. Christian was named Tech’s Freshman of the Year for her efforts and will be looked to provide another solid year at the hot corner. “Melody has got a bright future in front of her both offensively and defensively,” Acheson said. Chanelle Spalding was not far behind Christian in 2010 as she hit for a .310 batting average and scored 25 runs while driving in 10. She also showed patience at the plate as she ranked second on the team in walks with 26 and put together a .431 on base percentage. She is projected as the starter at first base. “Chanelle also had a solid freshman year,” Acheson said. “Her performance down the stretch was part of our surge both on offense and on defense.” Sophomore Samantha Everett will be tabbed as the go-to starter at shortstop after playing in 39 games during her freshman season. “Samantha settled down well down the stretch at shortstop,” Acheson said. “We’re hoping to have more stability in the infield as a result.”

“We have three pitchers who will contribute this season,” Acheson said. Mainstay Holly Thomas notched a team-high 16 wins in 2010 while maintaining a 2.81 ERA. During her two seasons at Tech, she has won 30 games and tallied 261 strike outs in 360 innings pitched. “Holly is the cornerstone of the staff,” Acheson said. “Last season she showed what she is capable of contributing. We’re counting on her to give us consistent performances throughout the season.” The team will also look to Whitney Cummings and Claudia Harke to step in and make an impact. “Claudia got quality innings in last season, Acheson said. “We’re hoping she can fill a meaningful spot in the rotation. “Whitney has pitched here or there but we are counting on her to contribute like a baseball closer,” Acheson continued. “Her style and skills are different and we’re counting on her giving batters different looks to throw them off.”

Head Coach 13th Season Wisconsin-Milwaukee (‘92)

2003 OVC Coach of the Year 2006 OVC Coach of the Year

Since becoming the leader of the Tennessee Tech softball program in 1999, head coach Tory Acheson has taken the Golden Eagles to new heights. Currently the longest tenured coach at Tennessee Tech, Acheson has recorded at least 25 wins in each of his 12 seasons at the helm and has averaged 38 wins per season during that span. Now in his 13th season in Cookeville, Acheson will look for his young Golden Eagles to build upon their OVC Tournament run from a season ago and bring home another OVC title to the Upper Cumberland.

Acheson has averaged 38 wins per season in his 12 years at the helm of the Golden Eagles

Acheson has displayed a 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 748 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 stay committed to academics and community service. Known for his winning traditions on the field, Acheson has also shown his offthe-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 home with Habitat for Humanity. Acheson’s commitment to academics is evident annually as his 2008 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. His 2009 squad also displayed academic prowess, ranking fourth in the nation with a 3.509 team GPA. His 2010 team also cracked the top-10 ranking seventh in team GPA with a mark of 3.514. Acheson has coached five CoSIDA Academic All-Americans and 11 Academic All-District players. He also had 108 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

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 discarded seats 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. His wife, Terry, has served as his assistant coach throughout his career. The couple has a son, Chuck, who is currently in his sixth year at Tennessee Tech.

2010 In Review

Making that climb back to the top A look back at the 2010 Golden Eagle softball season The 2010 Golden Eagle softball team saw plenty of ups and downs during a season that ultimately culminated in Tech’s 17th straight appearance in the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament. “Towards the end of the year we made some progress and played at a higher level,” head coach Tory Acheson said. “It was still disappointing that we did not play at a higher level throughout the entire season.” Tech may have started the season 0-3, but the Golden Eagles rebounded quickly to take their next four contests, including 7-0 victory over Alabama State for their first victory of the season. TTU would then go 4-4 during its next eight contests, including an 11-1 win over East Tennessee State and an 11-0 win over Western Carolina before returning to Cookeville to open its 2010 home schedule. The Golden Eagles opened their 2010 home schedule as they welcomed in No. 25 Lipscomb but were unable to get the better of the Lady Bisons. A couple of days later Tech opened its conference schedule with a pair of wins against Austin Peay and followed with its first two home wins of the season against Belmont.

TTU finished the rest of its regular season with a 13-13 record, en route to its 17th straight appearance in the OVC Tournament. Coming into the OVC Tournament, the sixth-seed Golden Eagles were slated to take on the three-seed Morehead State Eagles, with whom Tech took two-of-three contests earlier during the season. “OVC softball has improved dramatically in the last five years,” Acheson said. “You’re starting to see some good teams not make the tournament which shows a lot about how good the league is.” Tech defeated Morehead State 6-3 in nine innings, but fell to Jacksonville State 10-4 later in the day. The Golden Eagles rebounded quickly with a 6-3 victory over Murray State and found themselves going up against Eastern Illinois in their fourth contest of the tournament. TTU and EIU found themselves tied 2-2 going into extra innings setting the stage for freshman Brittany Spalding in the ninth inning as she hit the game-winning home run, as sophomore Holly Thomas earned the win pitching seven innings.

Christian received the team’s Freshman of the Year award for her efforts. Chanelle Spalding also put up some strong numbers as she hit for a .310 batting average, while coaxing 26 walks and scoring 25 runs. “Both of them (Melody and Chanelle) had strong freshman seasons,” Acheson said. “There are just beginning to scratch the surface of what they’re capable of.” Junior Callie Schmidt also turned in a solid performance behind the plate as she drove in a team-high 43 runs en route to being named the Golden Eagles Most Improved Player. Whitney Cummings provided the most power at the plate as she belted a team-high 12 home runs, while driving in 32 runs. She was named the team’s Best Offensive Player.

2010 Season Review

The Golden Eagles fell to UT Martin in a 2-1 duel that ended Tennessee Tech’s season with a 28-30 record. During the season, Tech got several solid performances from many different players including its primary pitchers in Maddie Schmissrauter and Holly Thomas. Schmissrauter finished the season with nine wins and a 2.20 ERA, while Thomas earned a team-high 16 wins, with a 2.81 ERA. Both players combined for 257 strikeouts over 201 innings pitched. Thomas was named to the all-OVC second team and the OVC all-tournament team for her efforts and earned the team’s Best Pitcher award for the second straight season. “Holly Thomas played really well and played close to the level that we know she is capable to play at,” Acheson said. The Golden Eagles also got some strong performances from behind the plate and on the field from three-year mainstays Lacie Coquerille and Kaleigh Gates. Gates finished the season batting .283 with seven home runs and 22 RBI while scoring 28 runs. Coquerille turned in another steady performance as she batted .273 and scored 21 runs. Their talents were not limited at the plate as they combined for just three errors in combined 104 games. Gates was named to the all-OVC second team, while Coquerille was named the team’s Most Valuable Player for the second straight season and also received the Coach’s award and the Best Defensive Infielder award. “Lacie played well despite fighting back from injuries,” Acheson said. “Kaleigh made some strong strides and improved her overall performance especially on defense.” Tech also featured a pair of players who were named to the OVC all-newcomer team in freshmen Mel-

With the score 2-1 in favor of Morehead State in the top of the seventh, Whitney Cummings hit a two-run homer with one out that gave the Golden Eagles a 3-2 advantage going into the last half of regulation.

Thomas held the Eagles scoreless in the ninth to preserve the TTU victory. She pitched all nine innings for the Golden Eagles as she recorded her 11th complete game and 14th victory of the season after tossing 157 pitches (98 strikes). Thomas struck out three and allowed just two earned runs in improving to 14-13 this season.

Golden Eagle starter Holly Thomas induced a pair of groundouts to start the bottom half of the frame, putting Tech one out away from the win, but the Eagles’ Kayla Brill hit a solo homer with two outs to knot the score at 3-3 and force extra innings.

The Golden Eagles gave Thomas a one-run cushion early on as Jordan Leff tripled to deep right field, bringing home Everett for the game’s first run in the second inning.

Neither team scored in the eighth inning, but Tech broke through in the top of the ninth to grab a 6-3 advantage. Kaleigh Gates, who was recently named to the all-OVC second-team, started the rally with a one-out double to center field. Cummings was beaned with a 3-2 pitch to put runners on first and second, and Callie Schmidt worked a 2-2 count into a walk to load the bases.

Morehead State battled back, tying the game in the fourth before taking a 2-1 lead in the sixth to set up the dramatic seventh inning.

Lacie Coquerille came to the plate next for Tech and delivered, just as she has all season long. The team’s leading hitter with runners in scoring position, Coquerille roped a double to left-center that scored Gates and Cummings, giving Tech a 5-3 lead. After Abbey Hayes walked to again load

Cummings finished 2-for-4 with a double, home run, two runs scored and two RBIs, while Everett was also 2-for-4 with a double, one run scored and one RBI. Leff and Coquerille also had a pair of hits for Tech as the Golden Eagles pounded out 11 hits for the game.

For the second season in a row, the Golden Eagles, the sixth seed, upset a higher seed to advance to the winners’ side of the bracket.

Cummings started the second with a walk and Callie Schmidt followed with her ninth home run of the season to tie the score at 2-2.

The Golden Eagles would get no closer as Eliasson did not allow a hit following the second inning.

Still in the second, Brittney Spalding hit a single to left and found herself at third after a pair of wild pitches by JSU starting pitcher Ashley Eliasson. Two batters later, Jordan Leff took a walk and stole second base to put two runners in scoring position with two outs. Melody Christian took advantage of the RBI opportunity and took a 1-2 pitch to left field for a single that plated both runners, giving TTU a 4-2 advantage.

Kaleigh Gates came up next and singled to left field, scoring Whitney Cummings and putting the Golden Eagles up by three. Schmidt came through again in the fifth inning as she beat out an infield single that allowed Spalding to score from third base and give TTU a 4-0 advantage. After Tech starting pitcher Holly Thomas shut down the Racers for the first four innings, they broke through in the bottom of the fifth with a pair of runs to shrink their deficit to 4-2. The Golden Eagles responded with two of their own in the top of the sixth inning. Melody Christian singled through the left side of the infield to put runners on first and third with two outs. The speedy third baseman then stole second base, forcing an errant throw by the Murray State catcher that allow Jordan Leff to trot home from third base for TTU’s fifth run. Spalding came to the plate next and doubled to deep left-center, allowing Christian to score and put the Golden Eagles in front, 6-2. The four-run cushion was more than enough for Thomas as she struck out four batters over the final two innings while allowing just an unearned run to cross the plate for the final 6-3 tally. Thomas earned her second win in as many days, while striking out nine batters for the second time this year. She pitched her team-high 12th complete game of the season and allowed just two earned runs while inducing eight groundouts.

Spalding went 1-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI. Gates was 1-for-4 with an RBI, and Leff went 1-for-3 with a run scored.

TENNESSEE TECH 3, EASTERN ILLINOIS 2 Tennessee Tech scored two runs in the top of the first, and Eastern Illinois countered with two in its half of the second inning to tie the game at 2-2. That would account for all the scoring until the ninth inning when Brittney Spalding crushed a home run that proved to be the game winner, helping Tech avenge its three regular season losses to the Panthers. In the top of the first, Chanelle Spalding took a one-out walk, and two batters later, Cummings singled to put two runners on base. The Golden Eagles’ RBI leader Callie Schmidt came to the plate next and delivered a two run double to put Tech in front, 2-0. A two-run home run in the bottom of the second inning by EIU knotted the game at 2-2. Maddie Schmissrauter started the game for Tech and pitched two innings before Thomas took over. Both Thomas and EIU starter Amber May shut down the opposing offenses for the next six innings. Brittney Spalding led off the top of the ninth inning with a homer to left-center field that put the Golden Eagles ahead, 3-2, and Thomas sat down the Panthers in order in the bottom of the ninth to secure the victory for TTU. Thomas (16-13) pitched seven scoreless innings in relief for Tech, earning her third win on the team’s last four games. She struck out two and allowed just one extra-base hit.

T E N N E S S E E T E C H 1 , U T MA R T I N 2 The Golden Eagles showed a great amount of effort, especially considering that the team had played four games in the past two days – two of which lasted longer than three hours. Those two contests were Tech’s only games this season to go over three hours. Sophomore starter Holly Thomas threw more than 450 pitches over the course of the tournament. She started Saturday’s game and went the distance roughly 12 hours after pitching seven relief innings against Eastern Illinois on Friday. For the tournament, the second-team all-OVC selection was 3-1 with a 1.45 ERA and 18 strikeouts, while pitching three complete games. At the plate, junior catcher Callie Schmidt carried the load for Tech during the tournament as she led the team with a .333 batting average, one home run and seven RBIs. Her seven runs batted in brought her season total to 43, the eighth most in a single season in TTU history. Tech threatened in the fourth inning with runners on the corners and two outs, but UT Martin starter Kate Vanderham was able to induce a groundball to get out of the jam and keep TTU off the board. Opportunity struck in the fifth inning for the Golden Eagles as Tech was able to take advantage of a pair of UTM errors to close the gap. Friday night’s hero Brittney Spalding reached on an error to start the inning and took second on a passed ball. Kaleigh Gates then reached on an error by the catcher, putting runners on first and third with no outs. Two batters later, Melody Christian’s RBI groundout plated Spalding and brought the Golden Eagles to within one, 2-1. Thomas kept Tech’s deficit at one run as she retired the Skyhawks in order in the bottom of the sixth, but the Golden Eagles were unable to come up with another run to tie the game in the top of the seventh as they fell by a single run. Thomas (16-14) was charged with the loss after striking out four and allowing two earned runs over six innings in the circle.

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 63rd year, the Ohio Valley Conference continues to build on the success that has made it the nation’s eighth-oldest NCAA Division I conference. For only the second time in a decade, the Conference expanded by adding Southern Illinois University Edwardsville as the league’s 11th member in 2008. The move expanded the OVC’s geographical footprint to the St. Louis market and marked the first change in membership since expanding to the state of Alabama (Jacksonville State, Samford) in 2003. 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 62 years, 14 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 2008, the NCAA Board of Directors approved an expansion to the FCS Playoffs, incrasing the playoff field to 20 teams beginnings in the 2010 season. 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 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 192 student-athletes honored with the award, including 25 over the last two years (2008-09 to the present). 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 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.

ATHLETIC ADMINISTRATION DR. ROBERT (BOB) BELL University President - Florida 1969 Dr. Robert (Bob) Bell, now in his 11th year as President of Tennessee Tech, is an avid supporter of TTU and Ohio Valley Conference sports. He currently chairs the OVC President’s Board of Directors. Bell became TTU’s President in 2000 after serving as dean, associate dean, assistant dean, and a chairperson in the university’s College of Business. After taking the post, he oversaw the reorganization of the athletics department, bringing in a full-time athletic director for the first time in almost 20 years. He has also been involved in statewide economic development on behalf of the Tennessee Higher Education Commission, working on the THEC master plan focusing on links among higher education and stakeholders in business, health care and state government. Bell has served four terms on the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award’s Board of Examiners and was appointed a charter member of the Tennessee Center for Performance Excellence in 1992, serving on the group’s panel of judges from 1994 to 2005. He represented Tennessee as a state delegate to the White House Conference on North American Free Trade Agreement in 1994 and spent two years as an economic development consultant for the nation of Mauritius.

Dr. Bell has served on or chaired a variety of professional, regional and national organizations, including the American Association of Collegiate Schools of Business International, the Southern Business Association, the North American Case Research Association, the Tennessee College Association, and a number of Tennessee higher education task forces, among others. In 2005, Bell was named the first recipient of the Ned R. McWherter Leadership Award, presented by the Tennessee Center for Performance Excellence. In the scholarly arena, he has been published extensively in the fields of management, organizational design, computer science and quality/productivity management, authoring two books and more than 70 articles, case studies and papers. Bell is also well known and respected in the Cookeville community. He has chaired the Cookeville-Area Putnam County Chamber of Commerce’s board of directors, the Regional Quality Council and the Putnam Tomorrow Task Force for the Putnam County Commission. A past president of the local YMCA, Bell currently chairs the Cookeville Industrial Development Board and is a member of the Board of Directors for CityScape and Blood Assurance Corp. He has been an adult leader in the Boy Scouts of America since 1988 and serves on the executive board for the Middle Tennessee Council of BSA. He is also a member of the Cookeville Rotary and Evening Lions Clubs.

MARK WILSON Director of Athletics - Maine 1991 Mark Wilson’s first six 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 is currently serving an appointment on the NCAA Leadership Council through April, 2011. It gives the Ohio Valley Conference, TTU and Wilson a voice in a variety of strategic decisions that can affect intercollegiate athletics. Wilson, 41, has led athletics to several milestone accomplishments during his first six 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 three 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. Most recently, Athletics opened a spacious, new basketball office complex

in Eblen Center and construction is underway on an new Athletic Performance Center on the western edge of campus. 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 implementeing 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 farreaching “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 (15) and Meaghan (10).

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 150 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 Marilyn Borch-Jensen students. Academic Student-athletes devote many hours to practice, conditioning and training in an effort to be the best they Advisement can be. These hours are not required by non-athletes in the student body, and these extra demands can compete Secretary 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 Tech student-athletes to maximize their academic potential.

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.

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

Tennessee Tech Athletics: Home of the Golden Eagles

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.

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

Train using ground-based, mulit-joint lifting versus machine lifting The following are recommendations for athletes Most athletes participate in stand up power sports using concerning days and times of strength training many muscle groups at once. The emphasis of training (including warmups): should be on total body athleticism and flexibility rather than * In-season: 3 days / week; 30-40 minutes/workout having body weight supported by a machine and forcing * Post-season: 3-4 days / week; 45-60 minutes/workout isolation of just one muscle group. By incorporating ground* Pre-season: 4 days / week; 50-60 minutes/workout based lifts and exercises that focus on the total body, the athlete becomes more prepared to use their whole body in sport skills.

Assistant Strength Coaches

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. 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.

Kristina Hortert

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, therefore making it harder to “fold” under pressure.

THIS IS TENNESSEE TECH 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

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.

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.
