2013 Outlook

2013 AUM Softball After a historical season in 2012, which culminated in the program’s first trip to the NAIA National Championship tournament, this year’s Auburn Montgomery softball squad is looking to establish itself as consistent contenders on the national stage. The Warhawks finished 42-20 last year, clinching the first 40-win season in the short, four-year history of the program. They were one game away from clinching their first Southern States Athletic Conference title, falling to William Carey 3-0 in the championship game. Finishing as the conference runner-up was enough to seal a national tournament berth, however, and AUM displayed its worthiness by winning all three games in bracket play. The Warhawks’ season finally came to an end in pool play with a 4-1 defeat to national runner-up Oklahoma City. “It was an amazing ride,” head coach Chris Steiner-Wilcoxson said. “It was a four-year journey. Our seniors helped build the program from the ground up, and it was great to see them rewarded for their efforts. Now it’s time to start over, turn a new leaf, and continue to build on that success.” Four-time NAIA All-American Brandi Richards and 2012 All-American Shea Driggers are among the key departing seniors from last year. Richards went 16-10 with a 1.17 earned run average as a starter, striking out 250 batters in 174.0 innings. She also hit .312 at the plate. Driggers led the team with 30 RBIs while hitting .317. AUM will have to replace the veteran leadership of Danielle Kirkpatrick behind the plate as well. Kirkpatrick started 55 of the team’s 62 games last year, guiding a pitching staff that had a collective ERA of just 1.45, with 18 shutouts. “We lost a good deal of seniors who were vital to our program,” SteinerWilcoxson said. “It will be interesting to see who steps up. Our returners from last year got the taste of what it takes to be winners, and they’re really pushing to help our young players understand what it will take for us to compete at that level year-in and year-out.”

(.497). She also tied for the team lead with five home runs and a .394 on-base percentage. The Madison, Ala., native earned SSAC All-Conference honors for her efforts. As an upperclassmen, Steiner-Wilcoxson hopes for continued development from Pepper in all facets of her game. “Pepper has everything it takes to be an All-American, All-Conference type player,” Steiner-Wilcoxson said. “She’s been an everyday impact player her entire career. We’re really looking forward to what she brings this year as a leader anchoring the left side of the infield.” Pepper is one of three returning starters across the diamond for the Warhawks. Sophomore Katie Spain will be back at third base, while senior Haley Johnson returns at second. Spain appeared in 52 games, making 45 starts for AUM. She hit .276 with 35 runs scored and 15 RBIs. The Whittier, Calif., native was one of the top offensive performers during the fall season, and Steiner-Wilcoxson has high expectations for her in the spring. “Katie worked extremely hard last year,” Steiner-Wilcoxson said. “She gained a lot of experience and got better every day. She carried that over into the offseason, and just had a tremendous fall. She hit great and played great defensively. We’re counting on her big time.” Johnson hit .299 with eight doubles, and her 49 hits were third-most on the team. She also made nine appearances as a pitcher, finishing with a 4-2 record and

Junior infielder Jyssica Pepper Steiner-Wilcoxson expects a variety of players to fill the void at first, including junior college transfer Jade Sasser, senior Katie Cornelius and freshman Kayla Hale. “We brought in Jade from Central Alabama Community College,” SteinerWilcoxson said. “She’s a big hitter with a lot of athleticism, and she’s a great leader. But she’s battled some injuries and we’re not sure how much she’ll be able to play. We’re just trying to find a good fit, someone who can get it done both offensively and defensively.” Freshmen Jennifer Jenkins and Katie Brinkman will also battle for playing time around the infield. Jenkins can play at second and third base, while Brinkman will backup second base and shortstop. “They both have a lot of versatility,” Steiner-Wilcoxson said. “They’re solid kids with very good work ethics. We’re fairly confident that if something were to happen in terms of injuries, that we have great backups who are ready to fill those slots.”

CATCHERS

INFIELDERS Perhaps the most important of those returners is junior shortstop Jyssica Pepper. The only player to start all 62 games, Pepper led the team in batting average (.323), runs (46), stolen bases (14), doubles (11) and slugging percentage

a 1.84 ERA. “Haley is a great all-around athlete,” Steiner-Wilcoxson said. “She can play in the field and hit, and that’s where we need her the most right now. But we know she’s an option on the mound if we need her.” The Warhawks used a mixture of Sarah Suggs and Kacie Ryal at first base last season, and neither will return in 2013.

AUM will have three catchers attempting to fill the void left by Kirkpatrick. Senior returner Holly Saint is joined by junior college transfer Leslie Kelly and freshman Lauren Shaw. Saint started seven games behind the plate in 2012, collecting three hits in

OUTFIELDERS Junior left fielder Laci Driggers headlines the returners from an outfield which will have to deal with the losses of Richards and four-year starter Joanna Reynolds. Driggers earned SSAC All-Division accolades after hitting .287 with 22 RBIs. She added 10 stolen bases and nine doubles, both of which were second-most on the team. “Laci has a great arm and great athleticism,” Steiner-Wilcoxson said. “She plays all-out. You’ll always see her dive and take that extra bag. Her wide-openness really makes her a great player. I’m thoroughly looking forward to seeing what she brings to the team this year.” Senior Rachel Stuart returns as well, with the expectation that she will be the starting right fielder. Stuart has seen significant playing time in each of her last two seasons at AUM, and she has amassed a career batting average of .255 with 40 hits overall. “Rachel has made vast strides throughout her four-year career,” Steiner-Wilcoxson said. “We really need her to step up and be a consistent threat at the plate this season. Defensively, she’s one of the

best outfielders in the conference.” Steiner-Wilcoxson also expects a lot from Emma Johansen. The senior newcomer excelled at Division II West Florida last year, hitting .382 with a .459 on-base percentage and 25 stolen bases in 29 attempts. She earned second-team all-conference honors as a result, and is expected to play center field and hit at the top of the lineup this season for the Warhawks. “Emma brings a lot of athleticism, and she’s proven herself at the Division II level,” Steiner-Wilcoxson said. “She will hopefully fill that leadoff spot for us, allowing us to move Pepper back into a 3-4-5 slot where she can really produce in terms of driving in runs.” Sophomore returners Amie Kelly and Ainsley Faulk join freshman Paige Nielsen in making up the rest of the outfield. “Amie and Ainsley have both worked really hard in the offseason and fall to get ready to fill the void left by last season’s seniors,” Steiner-Wilcoxson said. “We also have Paige, who is one of the strongest pure athletes on our team. She has a great stick, and could help fill in at the DH spot.”

PITCHERS

While replacing Brandi Richards as the ace of the staff is a monumental task, sophomore Cassie Daniels certainly made a good case for herself during her debut season. Daniels earned SSAC All-Freshman and All-Division team honors after going 13-7 with a 1.77 ERA in 30 appearances (22 starts). She struck out 161 batters in 150.1 innings, and held opponents to a .203 batting average. “Cassie had a great year as a freshman,” Steiner-Wilcoxson said. “She threw a lot of big games for us. I think having Brandi as a role model really helped her grow and establish herself in our conference. We’re excited about what her sophomore year will bring. I think that she will really strive hard to fill the void from Brandi’s departure.” Freshmen Kayla Hale and Taylor Powell will also see plenty of time on the mound for the Warhawks, along with freshman Liz Taylor. Sophomore pitcher Cassie Daniels

2013 Outlook

11 at-bats. Kelly hit .367 with 20 home runs during her two seasons at Central Alabama CC, winning a state championship in 2011. Shaw graduated from North Forsyth High School in Cumming, Ga., where she hit .455 as a senior. “With all of the catchers, they have to be able to learn how to handle all of the pitchers,” Steiner-Wilcoxson said. “That’s the most important thing before the season, just building up that chemistry. Danielle had been with the pitchers for four years, so it’s going to be hard to fill that role overnight.”

Junior outfielder Laci Driggers “Kayla is the first lefty pitcher that we’ve ever had,” Steiner-Wilcoxson said. “We’re really excited about her and what she brings to the table. Taylor is more of a power pitcher, and really has developed a lot over the fall, picking up speed and accuracy on her pitches. Liz will add solid depth to our pitching staff.” Johnson will also remain as an option from the pitcher’s spot in addition to her time at second base.

EXPECTATIONS The NAIA is revising the national tournament this season, with 40 teams making the championships instead of the previous 32. This will allow 10 teams to host regionals, with one squad from each group of four advancing to the final group of 10. AUM will look to build on the progress it made both at the conference and national levels. “We have two main goals this season,” Steiner-Wilcoxson said. “We want to win our conference. We want to establish ourselves as a threat in our conference, which will be very tough. And we also want to finish high enough this year where we could possibly host a regional. “We’ll be playing a lot of ranked teams,” she continued. “And we’ll be playing some of them for four games. So we really have to bring it every game. We can’t slack off for one inning, one out, one at-bat. We have to make the most of every pitch. I think it will be a really exciting season.”

Community Sercice

2013 AUM Softball The AUM softball team takes pride in its work ethic on the field and in the classroom, and that work ethic also extends into the community. Throughout the year, the Warhawks participate in a number of events across the state. The softball program can frequently be found at the Montgomery Children’s Center, where they spend time with children who have severe medical conditions and are wheelchair-bound. While at the center, members of the team help the children participate in fun activities, playing a number of different games with the students. In October, the Warhawks visited the center to support its Halloween Festival. Perhaps the Warhawks’ biggest source of outreach is their partnership with local youth softball organizations. AUM has countless day camps for local girls interested in improving their skills at the game of softball in the Montgomery area. Other projects that the Warhawks have been involved in include the Champion-ship Holiday Toy Drive (collecting toys for the local sheriff department), volunteering at the LPGA Golf Tournament held in Prattville, helping local gymnasts at United Gymstars & Cheer, Volunteer Day at Brewbaker Elementary, the KaBoom Build a Playground project and working with the City of Montgomery to build a new playground at Oak Park.

2013 AUM Softball

AUM Softball Complex The AUM Softball Complex has seen many additions since its 2010 debut, and is now one of the premier on-campus facilities at the NAIA level. Among the improvements are a new state-of the-art press box, bleacher seating for more than 200 spectators behind home plate, restrooms, a concession stand and increased storage space. Of the 200 seats, 52 are backed bucket seats, which are available for season purchase. The project was capped by the addition of a new lighting system at the field, which allows the Warhawks to practice and play at all hours. In addition, the bullpens for both the home and visiting teams were upgraded. The capacity of the AUM Softball Complex now stands at better than 400. The dimensions of the field are 210 feet down the left-field line, 220 to straight-away center field and 205 feet down the right-field line. AUM officially played its first game at the facility on Feb. 16, 2010, when it hosted Judson College. The Warhawks won both games in the doubleheader and currently sport a 40-16-1 (.711 winning percentage) record at the complex.

2013 AUM Softball

HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY A broad-based academic institution, Auburn University at Montgomery is organized into five schools - Business, Education, Liberal Arts, Nursing and Sciences. The genesis of the institution came after a request from the citizens of the Montgomery area to establish an additional degreegranting institution. Auburn University at Montgomery was established in 1967 and the first classes were offered in 1969. Originally housed in several buildings downtown, 500 acres in east Montgomery were purchased in 1971 so the campus could move to a location where it could grow. In 1973, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools accredited AUM as an operationally separate institution. The Auburn University Board of Trustees maintains responsibility for governance of AUM.

ATHLETIC EXCELLENCE Warhawks athletic teams have a championship reputation in NAIA Division I and Southern States Athletic Conference sports. Our men’s and women’s tennis teams have won 21 national championships. Men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball and softball have competitive histories as well, and our new men’s and women’s cross country teams are building one.

STEVE CROTZ Athletic Director Fifth Year Missouri, 1979

Steve Crotz is currently in his fifth year as Athletic Director at Auburn Montgomery, after serving two stints as the interim athletic director in 2000 and 2007. During his tenure, AUM teams have flourished, programs established, and facilities improved. Student-athletes have also been a stalwart in the community and excelled in the classroom. Under his guidance, eight of AUM’s 10 sports have spent time in their respective NAIA Top 25 Coaches’ Polls and teams have won four national championships. In addition, 158 student-athletes have earned All-Conference, All-Division or All-Freshman team honors, while 70 have garnered All-American honors. AUM has added a softball program, as well as men’s and women’s cross country programs, increasing its number of varsity sports to 10. The cross country team ran its first meet in the Fall of 2011 and will compete in the Southern States Athletic Conference of the NAIA. Crotz has overseen several facility upgrades, including the renovation of the basketball gymnasium to include a section of 304 cushioned, chair-backed seats on the home side of the court, the building of a new state-of-the-art press box at the AUM Softball Complex and the re-surfacing of all 12 tennis courts at the AUM Tennis Complex. Upgrades to the Softball Complex also included bleacher seating for more than 200 spectators directly behind home plate, restrooms, a concession stand, a press area and increased storage.

In the classroom, student-athletes have been equally impressive, as 135 athletes have earned All-Academic honors from the SSAC and 45 have been named NAIA Scholar Athletes. Three AUM student-athletes, women’s basketball standouts Haley McIntyre and Carlie Ainsworth, and men’s basketball’s David Gallagher, have been named the SSAC Honor Student Athlete. Within the community, staff, coaches and student-athletes have logged better than 750 hours of service. Crotz has worked with the AUM administration to expand the athletic department staff to include a head and assistant softball coach and an athletic trainer. He has also spent the past two years serving as the chair of the Board of Athletic Directors within the Southern States Athletic Conference. For his efforts during the 2010-11 academic year, Crotz was selected the SSAC Athletic Director of the Year. Before focusing on administration, Crotz served 12 seasons as the head women’s basketball coach at Auburn Montgomery. Crotz compiled a record of 284-116 while at AUM, winning four regular season conference championships, two conference tournament titles, and advancing to the NAIA National Tournament 10 times. Crotz was a 10-time conference/region coach of the year and was named the Ikon/Women’s Basketball Coaches Association National Coach of the Year following his team’s national runnerup finish for the 1999-00 season. Prior to AUM, Crotz spent five years as athletic director and six years as head women’s basketball

coach at Lindenwood University. While at LU, Crotz earned 126 wins and led the Lady Lions to three consecutive NAIA National Tournament appearances. During his six years at the St. Charles, Mo., institution, he was named American Midwest Conference Coach-of-the-Year on four occasions. In October 2009, he was inducted into the Lindenwood Hall of Fame. Crotz also spent nine years at Brentwood High School overseeing the girl’s basketball program and winning 210 games. Five times during that span he led Brentwood to the Missouri State Tournament where they won the state tournament in 1985 and finished as the runners-up in 1986 and 1990. For his efforts, Crotz was named the Missouri High School Coach-of-the-Year in 1985. Crotz received his bachelor’s degree in education from the University of Missouri in 1979 and his master’s degree in secondary education from Missouri-St. Louis in 1984. He and his wife, the former Daphne Hozee, reside in Montgomery with their two children, Kelsey and Jacob.

2013 AUM Softball Montgomery athletics competing as a member of the Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC). In 2010, the conference announced an expansion and now showcases 15 member institutions located throughout the southeast, including the states of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Tennessee. Located in Norcross, Ga., the SSAC sponsors 13 intercollegiate sports including men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, softball, men’s and women’s tennis and men’s and women’s golf. The conference staff features Interim Commissioner Jonathan Wojciechowski, Sports Information Director Tyler Hyde, and an Eligibility Chair, Dr. Ron Melton. 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 member institutions. Since the conference’s inception and affiliation with the NAIA, 26 SSAC teams and 11 individuals have claimed national titles, while 22 teams have finished national runners-up. Auburn Montgomery has been a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) since 1975. In those 36 years, AUM has claimed 21 national championships and six of the school’s 10 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 student-athletes 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 student-athletes 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. In addition, the Champions of Character program monitors each NAIA institution’s commitment to the initiative with its Scorecard, which is divided into character training, conduct in competition, academic focus, character recognition and character promotion. Last year, AUM was one of 220 schools recognized as a Five Star institution after earning 80 points on a 100-point scale, the 42nd-best total in the country.
