2011 Season Outlook The 2010 Auburn University at Montgomery softball team season finished 38-16-1 overall, fourth in the Southern States Athletic Conference and ranked 20th in the final NAIA Coaches’ Poll. Even with the loss of their first senior class, the Lady Senators have a strong incoming class and 15 returning letterwinners for the 2011 season. “Instead of this being a rebuilding year, we’ve been able to keep moving forward with the girls that have come in,” said head coach Chris Wilcoxson. “We have some great athletes, who are great leaders, and a team with a lot of experience.” The Lady Senators were voted 23rd in the 2011 NAIA Softball Coaches’ Preseason Top 25 Poll, and that is just the recognition they were looking for. With a tough schedule last season and the one that features 14 Top 25 teams this year, the Lady Senators want to build a certain reputation. “Being ranked within two years of having a team says a lot about our program, because we get out there and play the tough teams,” said Wilcoxson. “People have noticed us in the last two years and they are taking us serious as a program. Also, our conference is really strong and we get respect with that as well.” “We’ve played a tough schedule every year, including a tournament of the top teams in the country every year,” said Wilcoxson. “In order to build a reputation here at AUM we have to do that, we have to play good teams, and we have got to play against good competition. We could have a better record if we didn’t have such a hard schedule, but I think our kids have learned more and become better players because of the strength of the schedule.” With the strength of the schedule and the preseason rankings, the goal is clear this year of what the Lady Senators want to achieve, and that is a conference All-American Pitcher Brandi Richards championship. “Our goal every year is to win the conference tournament,” said Wilcoxson. “Last year we finished the regular season tied, and then we lost due to a tie breaker. It was heart breaking, but I think it made the girls realize how much one game can affect the season as a whole.” With 15 letterwinners returning, AUM looks to its experienced players as leaders, and at the forefront is junior firstteam All-American Brandi Richards, who holds nearly every pitching record in school history and posseses strong leadership on and off the field. The Lady Senators also return senior

Whitney Wyatt, who earned All-SSAC honors last year, and second-team all-conference selections Taylor Burt and Stacin Halverson. Infield The Lady Senators have 10 infielders that will possibly see playing time this season, with first base providing the most stability across the infield. “First base will be a position that has strength with the return of Whitney Wyatt and Taylor Saint. With those two players, we have power hitters and great defenders. We are fortunately strong in that position but will have to build in that position in the future.” Wyatt will enter the season as the projected starter but will be in the line up nearly every game because of her power bat. “Whitney is a power hitter and will be playing first base,” said Wilcoxson. “She has led our team for two seasons at the plate, so I’m really looking forward to her excelling, especially in the offensive aspect of the game. She averages about 12 home runs a season and hits about .350. I would really like to see her step up this season and be a leader at the plate and in the field.” Also looking for some playing time at the first base position will be senior Taylor Saint. “She is more defensive than Whitney, and she will block more at first,” said Wilcoxson. “She is a very athletic young lady that has a lot of range and is very agile. She really does a great job of playing defense at first base.” Second base will be a collaborative effort between juniors Kacie Ryal, Danielle Kirkpatrick and Carol Ann McIntyre. “Kacie Ryal is going to make the adjustment from shortstop to second, and I really feel like she will excel there,” said Wilcoxson. “She is tall and can cover at first for the short game. Her hitting really came around this fall, and I’m excited to see what she can bring to the plate this season. I’m really looking for her to be an everyday player and a leader on the infield.” “Carol Ann will play first or second base,” said Wilcoxson. “She really helped out this fall. She is a lefty hitter, which adds another dimension to our line up, and could really be a force in conference at the plate.” Even with a new starter at second base, Wilcoxson is still excited about the right side of the infield. “I feel the right side of the infield is our strongest, because the experience and chemistry of the kids having been here for two years,” said Wilcoxson. “I feel that we are confident in our short game and pressure situation on the right side of the infield.” Shortstop will also have several faces, including Kirkpatrick, Burt and possibly Ryal, but the front-runner will be freshman Jyssica Pepper. “Jyssica has worked really hard this fall with her range, her

2011 Season Outlook technique and her all around game,” Wilcoxson said. “By the end of the fall season, she was covering second base, throwing people out on the run, and she is acting like an experienced ball player. She really tried to take everything in that we taught her.” Third base will have split time between freshmen Cheyenna Kawala, Burt and sophomore Kendall Thomas. “Right now, Cheyenna and Taylor will be pushing for playing time at third base,” Wilcoxson said. “Chey is a very hard-working kid, has good talent and is a strong kid who has worked on her game this fall. She has really adjusted to the quickness of the game and our style of play. Taylor is a lot like Danielle (Kirkpatrick). She is a very good athlete and can play multiple positions.” “Kendall is coming off a redshirt year, and the biggest thing is getting her back healthy and getting her back into the swing of things,” said Wilcoxson. “She has a great work ethic and is a force on the infield. She has really high standards for herself and really wants to help this team move forward.” Behind the plate, Kirkpatrick and senior Ashton Nelson will battle for the starting spot. However, expect each to see significant playing time at the position. “Danielle and Ashton are our two catchers; both are equally talent, but bring different aspects to the game and are each unique in their styles,” Wilcoxson said. “They both have chemistry with all the pitchers, which is a key factor, and are team leaders.” “Danielle has played many different positions for us, especially when people have been hurt,” said Wilcoxson. “She is always willing to do whatever it takes to play and has a great attitude. She’s a great catcher, and she is going to really excel this year being a junior. I’m looking forward to what she can bring to the table, and I’m very happy to have kids like her in my program.” “Ashton is coming off a redshirt year and will help us from a leadership role. I think she has adjusted and matured as a player with the year off. I am really hoping for big things and that she will step up with our freshman pitcher.” Outfield The outfield has six returning letterwinners that will bring experience, as well as versatility. Halverson, who is the Lady Senators’ lead-off hitter, also leads in the outfield as a threeyear starter and is able to play either right or left field. Juniors Megan Rogers and Joanna Reynolds each excel at the plate and have strong arms. Rogers really helps in the batting order in front of the power hitters and being smart and quick on the basepaths. Reynolds makes good contact, which can put pressure on the defense. Sophomore Rachel Stuart rounds out the outfield with her hard work ethic and great footwork. She provides AUM with speed in right field and adds depth at the position. “Outfield should be the strongest position for us this

season,” Wilcoxson said. “We have five or six girls returning, half of them are lead-off hitters, and the other half are power hitters. We pride ourselves with our outfield within the conference, from an athletic standpoint, speed-wise, coverage and hitting-wise. We are strong there, and we have a lot of options.” Pitching Richards, who is the first All-American at AUM in the softball program and was named the pitcher of the year in the Southern States Athletic Conference, will be the top option in the circle for AUM this season. “Brandi is a phenomenal pitcher and phenomenal athlete. She can play outfield, can pitch, can hit and can run. She is one of the best softball players I have been able to coach,” said Wilcoxson. “We are really excited about her being healthy this year and being able to see what she can accomplish. She is one of the hardest workers on the team and seems to never be satisfied. She is always pushing herself to do better and improve. You can’t ask for a better kid. She is very humble. We hope that she will be able to continue on the path of great success and continue to push herself.” Sophomore Jessica Perry is a developing pitcher, who looks to become a force on the mound this season. Rounding out the pitching staff is freshman Courtney Baker. Baker will be one of the main sources of innings on the pitching staff and will take on a heavy load this season for AUM. “Courtney has pitched really well this fall,” said Wilcoxson. “She has really pushed herself and has learned a lot mentally as a pitcher. I think she could be a great ball player, and I’m excited to see how she grows into a very special pitcher.” Designated Hitter Junior Shea Driggers will be the primary designated hitter, but Kawal and Baker, as well as Burt, will see action, depending on the situation. “Shea is our returning designated hitter and has been with us the last two seasons,” said Wilcoxson. “We are really looking for her to step up at the plate, especially with the potential and power she posses. She can really be a force to be reckoned this year in the conference and use her experience to her advantage to hit the ball hard.”

Community Service The AUM softball team takes pride in their work ethic on the field, but also in the community. This offseason the Lady Senators participated in the Commerce for Canines, Volunteer Day at Brewbaker Elementary, and KaBoom Build a Playground projects, just to name a few. The second annual Commerce for Canines kicked off with a dog parade through downtown Montgomery to raise awareness and money for the Montgomery Humane Society. Twenty-two dogs from the shelter walked with the players around downtown in hopes that they would be adopted. Another community service project the team was involved in was Volunteer Day at Brewbaker Elementary. On Oct. 22, the AUM softball team and the community-based organization integrated students with special needs with the Lady senators to make sandwiches for individuals within the community. The lunches were made and delivered to the Friendship Mission Church, which is a PCA Presbyterian church and shelter located on the western side of town providing daily worship services, housing the homeless and feeding the hungry. On Saturdays, the church and shelter provide over 90 sack lunches, filled with two sandwiches and plenty of snack items. Coaches and players also put forth their efforts with the KaBoom Build a Playground project and the City of Montgomery to build a new playground at Oak Park. The girls helped assemble the play equipment, fill the area around the playground with sand, and worked to make the park a better place to play for the kids. Other projects that the team has been involved in was the MacMillian Magnet School Reading Night, the City of Montgomery Dragon Boat Races, the Championship Toy Drive and volunteering at the LPGA golf tournament held in Prattville.

Thompson District 3 - Lee County Jay Gouge President of Auburn University HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY Auburn Montgomery was established in 1967 by Act 403 of the Alabama Legislature. This action resulted from the request of the citizens of the Montgomery area to establish an additional degree-granting institution to serve Montgomery and the surrounding counties. The first classes were offered in September 1969. A 500-acre tract on the east side of Montgomery was purchased for the site of the new campus. Two architectural firms developed the master plan for the new campus and designed the original buildings, which were occupied in the fall of 1971. A broad-based academic institution, AUM is organized into five schools: Business, Education, Liberal Arts, Nursing and Sciences, while the Air University Graduate Program and Division of Continuing Education offer additional educational opportunities. In 1973 AUM was accredited by the Southern Association of

22

Colleges and Schools as an operationally separate institution. In 1978, 1988, 1998 and 2008, accreditation was reaffirmed by the Southern Association. MISSION STATEMENT Auburn Montgomery’s mission, as the metropolitan campus of Auburn University, a land-grant institution, is to foster and exemplify excellence in education through instruction, research and service. Auburn Montgomery blends the traditional views of the university as a community of scholars with the contemporary view of the university as an integral part of the surrounding community, state and region. AUM provides academic programs that are characteristic of the finest traditions of scholarship and consistent with the responsibility of the university to provide support for the functions of government, regional economic growth and cultural enrichment through the arts. WHY CHOOSE AUBURN MONTGOMERY? Today’s economic crisis doesn’t have to cost you your college education. This year alone, Auburn Montgomery offered students more than $4 million in Pell Grants and another $20 million in student loans. Couple that with challenging classes and small class sizes, and Auburn Montgomery can provide you with an excellent education at a price you can afford. A STUDENT-TO-FACULTY RATIO OF 15:1 At Auburn Montgomery you won’t spend your freshman year in classes filled with 300 of your peers. Our classes are deliberately kept small (an average of 20 students), giving you more personal attention and allowing your professors to get to know you. BIG CAMPUS BENEFITS WITH A SMALL CAMPUS FEEL With programs of study in more than 90 areas, Auburn Montgomery’s courses run the gamut from accounting to sociology. We have sororities and fraternities for those who want to go Greek and numerous active clubs and organizations. Plus, your destination is never more than a five-minute walk on campus. FOUR-DAY WEEKS At Auburn Montgomery, many students take classes just four days a week – Monday through Thursday – making it easier for them to work, get home on the weekends or even travel. But students also find AUM can accommodate just about any schedule since classes are offered days, nights, weekends and online. We even offer a growing number of mini-term classes, allowing students to progress more rapidly. CUTTING-EDGE PROGRAMS Auburn Montgomery’s Storage Area Network Center of Excellence teaches information technology students to manage networks that store vast quantities of digital data. One of a handful of such centers in the country, it has been extremely successful

AUM ATHLETICS FACILITIES Since the installation of its athletic department in 1975, Auburn University at Montgomery has been known throughout the NAIA for its competitiveness on the field and court of play. Furthermore, AUM offers some of the best facilities in the Southeast to accommodate that competitive spirit. The AUM Physical Education Complex serves as the venue for all AUM men’s and women’s basketball home games. Originally built in 1976, the gymnasium underwent a face-lift during the Summer of 2010. Renovations included a refinishing of the gym floor as well as the installation of new bleachers that seat 2,760. The newest addition to the list of AUM athletics facilities comes with the newly built on-campus softball field, on which the AUM softball team was able to play all home games during the 2010 season. The field is part of the AUM Softball Complex, which will eventually include a press box, concessions stand, locker rooms and offices for the AUM softball coaching staff. The AUM Tennis Complex, also built in 1976, features a newly refinished playing surface for each of its 10 courts. Aside from

serving as the site for all AUM men’s and women’s home tennis matches, the AUM Tennis Complex also serves as a host site for the annual Small College Blue & Gray Classic held by the city of Montgomery. The AUM Soccer Complex has undergone several updates since its construction in 1985. In the early 2000’s new Olympic-style goals were installed along with a new scoreboard in 2006. Several landscaping renovations have taken place at the facility as well. The AUM Baseball Complex serves as the home field for Senators baseball and features stadium seating, a grandstand, press box and concessions stand for the convenience of Senator baseball fans. The complex has served as host site for the NAIA Region XIII Tournament in 2006 as well as the 2007 SSAC Baseball tournament.

The NAIA and Southern States Athletic Conference

The 2010-11 academic year marks the 11th year for Auburn Montgomery athletics competing as a member of the Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC). The newly expanded conference now showcases 16 member institutions located throughout the southeast, including the states of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Tennessee. The SSAC was established in 1949 as the Georgia Intercollegiate Athletics Conference with six member schools, including Oglethorpe University, Berry College, Valdosta State University, North Georgia College and State University, Piedmont College and Georgia Southern University. In 1980 the conference was renamed the Georgia Athletic Conference and remained so until 1988, when its expansion into Georgia’s bordering states brought the need to change its name to the Georgia-Alabama-Carolina Conference (GACC). In 2003, the official name was again changed to the Southern States Athletic Conference. The conference membership has worked for more than 60 years to maintain a level of competition, excellence and quality that appropriately represents its 16 member institutions. Since the conference’s inception and affiliation with the NAIA, 21 SSAC teams and 10 individuals have claimed national titles, while 22 teams have finished national runnersup. Since the inception of its athletic program in 1975, Auburn Montgomery has been a member of the National As-

sociation of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). In those 35 years, AUM has claimed 19 national championships, and six of the school’s eight varsity programs have appeared in a national championship game. The NAIA, headquartered in Olathe, Kan., is a national organization with nearly 300 institutional members and over 60,000 student-athletes across the United States and Canada. Throughout its history, the NAIA has provided strong leadership for all aspects of intercollegiate athletics. Since its introduction of the intercollegiate championship of basketball in 1937, the NAIA has maintained its elite standards while administering first-rate athletics programs. The NAIA has continuously affirmed its commitment to equality by becoming the first national organization to offer institutional postseason opportunities to black studentathletes in 1948, to allow institutional membership to historically black institutions in 1953, and on Aug. 1, 1980, to vote in favor of the establishment of athletics programs for women. Today, the NAIA strengthens its commitment to studentathletes and strives to enrich their college experience by supporting academic achievement and character development. The NAIA approaches sport and activity as an opportunity to intentionally teach beyond the fundamentals through the philosophy of the NAIA Champions of Character program. By applying the five core values of respect, responsibility, integrity, servant leadership and sportsmanship, the NAIA has the ability to maximize talent to the benefit of each individual.
