THE GOLDEN HORSESHOE The Golden Horseshoe is located in the heart of the Colonial district, and offers players a choice of two world-renowned 18-hole courses and one 9-hole course. In 2008, the CAA Championships returned to the Golden Horseshoe, with the men battling on the par71 Gold Course, while the women challenged the Green Course’s par-72 layout. W&M’s women took third place behind senior Erica Oldenkamp’s ninth-place 226 (+10), and the men’s team finished fourth as Brent Paladino earned runner-up honors.

KINGSMILL GOLF RESORT Nestled deep in the heart of the lush splendor of historic Williamsburg and bordered by the James River’s tranquil blue waters is where you’ll find the famous championship River Course at Kingsmill Resort. The 6,831-yard, par-71 course has hosted the men’s spring invitational 27 times, including the past three years and once again will host the tournament this season.

WILLIAMSBURG NATIONAL Designed by the Nicklaus Design group, the Jamestown Course at Williamsburg National has served as proud host to the PGA Tour Michelob Open Qualifier on three occasions. It has received numerous awards including “One of the Ten Best Courses you can play in Virginia” by Golf Digest Magazine. With an emphasis on conditioning, it has been said that the Jamestown Course is so well designed that it could improve your score. The course measures 7,000 yards from the championship tees and is par-72.

COLONIAL The Colonial is a superbly conditioned, traditional layout in an unspoiled natural setting. The picturesque course winds through hardwood forests and tidal marshes, framed by native laurel and other indigenous species. The par-72, 6,885–yard course was opened in 1995 and designed by Lester George and Robert Wrenn. In 2009, the Tribe men’s team will participate in the Joe Agee Invitational at the course.

FORD’S COLONY The Marsh Hawk golf course at Ford’s Colony was an instant classic when it opened in 1985. The 6,650-yard, par-72 course, whose defining characteristics are its narrow fairways and strategically placed bunkers, has hosted the women’s spring invitational for more than 30 years now, the past six of which have been on the Marsh Hawk course. Ann Schnell was the last Tribe golfer to claim the individual medal, in 2001.

KISKIACK GOLF CLUB Kiskiack Golf Club is set on land once occupied by the Chickiack, a group of Virginia Algonquian Indians, under the rule of the Great Chief Powhatan. The 6,775-yard, par-72 course was designed by John LaFoy, and received a four-star rating in 2002-03 by Golf Digest. Located a few short minutes from Williamsburg proper, in Croaker, this bucolic facility has hosted the ECAC Division I Women’s Championship for two straight years and will host the championship tournament again this year.

Seventh Season at W&M

JAY ALBAUGH Mount St. Mary’s, 1996

In his seventh season at the helm of Tribe Golf, Jay Albaugh looks to lead the 2009-10 men’s and women’s teams to heights unparalleled in the history of the program. The 2008-09 season was a very successful one for the men’s golf program, as a pair of seniors each earned their first collegiate medalist honors. At the Raines Development Intercollegiate, senior Brent Paladino fired back-toback school-record rounds of 66 (-6) on his way to capturing the victory. Paladino finished the tournament with a 202 (-14), shattering the previous 54-hole school record by eight strokes. Then at the Georgetown Invitational, classmate Doug Hurson notched his first collegiate win, finishing the 36-hole event with a score of 143 (+1). It was the first time since 2001 that more than one player captured a tournament title in a season for the Tribe. Behind great team play, led by Paladino and Hurson, the Green and Gold finished the season with a record of 114-52-3, the ninth 100-win season in the program’s history. The women’s team started the 2008-09 season off with a bang, winning its first tournament of the season, the Nittany Lion Invitational. Junior Morgan Stepanek fired a school-record 69 (-3) in the first round, and along with freshman Caroline Sweet, led the Tribe to victory with each tying for third place with scores of 225 (+9). The College set school-records for 36 and 54 holes with team scores of 602 (+26) and 909 (+45), respectively. Later in the year at the ECAC Championship, freshman Kristen Hamel tied Stepanek’s school-record 69 (-3) with her final round score. Hamel finished the tournament in fourth-place with a 148 (+4). It was a record year for the Tribe, as the College went 115-50-1, posting the most wins in the program’s history and just its second 100-win season. In 2007-08, the men’s team season was highlighted by its fourth-place finish at the CAA Championship. Junior Brent Paladino led the Tribe during the season, claiming 12 school records over the course of the year. His season culminated with a runnerup finish at the CAA Championship with a school record-tying three-day total of 207 (-6). His second-place finish is the best finish at the conference championship since John McHenry in 1986. Freshman Brandon Parker took great strides over the course of the season for the Tribe. He was named CAA Men’s Golf co-Player of the week on March 26 after carding a 143 (+1) at the William and Mary home tournament at Kingsmill. His rounds of 72 and 71 were both new collegiate-lows for the rookie. The 2007-08 women’s team played solidly all season, but saved its best golf for the last two tournaments of the year. At the Lady Seahawk Invitational, all five Tribe golfers shot in the 70’s for two consecutive rounds, highlighted by senior Erika Oldenkamp’s school-record 54-hole total of 224 (+8) that earned her a tie for eighth. At the CAA Championship, the Tribe shot a school-record 299 (+11) in the final round to cement its third-place finish. The team also set the school-record for a 54-hole tournament, carding 914 strokes (+50) as Oldenkamp finished ninth with a three-day total of 226 (+10). On an individual note, sophomore Morgan Stepanek was named to the All-CAA second team for her outstanding play during the season, which included the second-best season scoring average in school history of 77.90. In 2006-07, the men’s team enjoyed a string of six-consecutive top-five finishes in the fall, and only had two tournament finishes under .500 for the entire year. Doug Hurson suffered no sophomore slump, leading the team with a 74.00 stroke average that at the time placed him fifth all-time in school history. He collected seven top-20 finishes through 10 events, and was named second-team All-CAA. Brent Paladino had the tournament of the year at the CAA Championships, placing fifth to earn a spot on the all-tournament team. The women’s team in 2006-07 had to find its way with youth in the fall, and was able to use that experience along with the return of Erika Oldenkamp and Marissa Sprick from semesters abroad to forge through the spring and cap the year with a fifth-place finish at the CAA Championships. At the Bobcat Desert Classic, the team

had two rounds where every player shot 79 or better, the first two times that had ever happened at W&M. In 2005-06, Albaugh mentored the women’s golf team to a program renaissance. In the fall, the squad won its first team championship since 1992 at its own Tribe Classic, setting a school record for lowest team score in a round with 299 strokes (+11). Senior Sayde Murray captured her first individual medal, and the program’s first since 2001, winning the Tribe Classic on the third playoff hole. In the spring, Murray continued her strong play to lead the team and finish fifth at the CAA Championships, and thensophomore Erika Oldenkamp tied the school record for the lowest round (70, -2) and posted the second-best 36-hole score (147, +3) at the Bonnie Hoover Invitational. For her steady play throughout the season, Oldenkamp named second-team All-CAA. The men’s team had its share of hardships to start the 2005-06 season, but the emergence of a trio of players gave the program a renewed vitality at the end of the spring. Then-junior Matt Brantingham improved his career average from ninth to sixth in the school charts, and qualified for the U.S. Amateur Public Links in the summer. Freshman Doug Hurson led the team in six of 10 tournaments and Brent Paladino led in five of the 10. Hurson had a season-average of 75.04, second on the team and second-best for any freshman in school history. Paladino led the team with an average of 74.64, setting the school record for best freshman average, and tied for the lowest score at the W&M Invitational with 69. In the summer, he qualified for both the U.S. Amateur and the Amateur Public Links, advancing to the third round of match play at the APL. In his second year, the men’s team had a year for the ages, just missing out on a bid to the NCAA Regional. Gary Barton and classmate Tim Pemberton were both named to the all-region team, with Pemberton also earning first-team All-CAA and second-team all-state honors as he set the school record for lowest career average in Tribe history. Barton garnered second-team all-conference and first-team all-state acclaim after leading the team throughout the year. He capped his career by winning the Cavalier Classic in a one-hole playoff, his second individual medal in four years. As a team, the men captured two tournament titles, an outstanding accomplishment for a squad that was composed primarily of underclassmen. In March the Tribe defended its home course, winning a three-team playoff to triumph in the W&M Invitational. In April, the College followed Barton’s charge to win the Cavalier Classic by a stroke over a 12-team field that included many Atlantic Coast Conference and CAA rivals. In recognition of his accomplishments, Albaugh was named the Men’s Coach of the Year by the Virginia Golf Coaches Association. His inaugural campaign in 2003-04 saw 2004 graduate Ann Schnell earn first-team All-CAA and CAA Women’s Golf Scholar-Athlete of the Year awards, and 2005 graduate Gary Barton earn second-team All-CAA and all-state honors. Albaugh came to the Tribe from Eastern Illinois University where he served as the head coach for both the men’s and women’s golf teams. In his five years at Eastern Illinois, Albaugh saw both squads achieve their best finishes at the Ohio Valley Conference Championships, including a runner-up result for the women in 2003. Overall, Albaugh coached his teams to four wins during his tenure, which included the women’s first win as a program. He also led each team to its lowest stroke average in history. Previously, Albaugh served three years as the head golf coach at Mount St. Mary’s College. While there, he oversaw the creation of the women’s golf program and also led the men’s team to its best conference finish (fourth). Albaugh, a 1996 graduate of Mount St. Mary’s, was a four-year letterwinner in golf and was named first team All-Northeast Conference his junior and senior seasons. The Mountaineers’ number one golfer for three years, Albaugh won the American University Invitational in 1994 and was a two-time selection to the NEC Scholar-Athlete team. Active on the national level within his profession, Albaugh is a member of the NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional Advisory Committee, and currently serves as the CAA representative to the Golf Coaches Association of America Congress. He is also a member of the National Golf Coaches Association. Albaugh holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Mount St. Mary’s and a master’s degree in athletic administration from Eastern Illinois. He lives in Richmond with his wife, Leighann.

THE COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY

The 2008-09 season for the William and Mary Tribe men’s golf team was one of many accomplishments for the College. The season saw two graduating seniors, Brent Paladino and Doug Hurson, earn medalist honors for the first time in their careers, marking the first time since 2001 that two players won titles in the same season. Behind overall great team play, the squad finished the season with a record of 114-52-3, the ninth 100-win season in program history. In 2009-10, the team will have to replace both Paladino and Hurson, but with a young group of established players, as well as a strong recruiting class, the 2009-10 Tribe men’s golf team looks to contend for the CAA title later in the year.

SENIORS

Leading the Tribe this season will be seniors Conor O’Brien and Andy Roach, who will look to provide a young team with leadership on and off the course this season. O’Brien enters the season after three solid campaigns for the Green and Gold and will look to end his career in Williamsburg on a high note. Last season, O’Brien’s best finish of the season came at the Rice Intercollegiate, where he placed in a tie for 31st. O’Brien also posted a top-50 finish at the Tribe’s home event, the First Market Bank Intercollegiate, coming in a tie for 46th overall. Through his first three years at William and Mary, Roach has seen limited playing time, but this season will look to make the most of the opportunities he is given and looks to make his final season his best. In 2008-09, Roach played in the First Market Bank Intercollegiate, finishing the event in a tie for 89th.

JUNIORS

2009-10 TRIBE GOLF

MEN’S PREVIEW

The College’s junior class is highly talented, and Tribe head coach Jay Albaugh will count on both Brandon Parker and transfer Zach Glassman to post solid finishes for the Green and Gold this season. At the end of last season, no golfer was playing better on the Tribe than Parker. Parker ended the year with his best finish of the season, placing in a tie for 10th at the CAA Championship with a score of 222 (+6). At the Big Five Invitational, Parker carded a career-low round of 70 (-1) to propel him to a tie for 11th. Parker then tied his personal-best score in the second round of the Towson Invitational on his way to a tie for 23rd place.

WWW.TRIBEATHLETICS.COM

Glassman, a transfer from the University of Dayton, will have two years of eligibility left for the College. During the 2007-08 season for the Flyers, Glassman recorded two top-10 and four top-20 finishes, ending the season with a scoring average of 74.8. Glassman also had a knack for playing his best when it counted, finishing in a tie for 25th at the A-10 Championship with rounds of 71-71-78.

SOPHOMORES

The only sophomore on the roster this season for the Tribe is Scott Saal, who after redshirting his firs year, played very well for the College last season and will be counted on to finish near the top of the leaderboard this year for the Green and Gold. Like Parker, Saal played his best golf of the year when it counted most, down the stretch. At the CAA Championship, Saal notched his first career top-10 finish, tying for 10th place with a score of 222 (+6). Also like Parker, Saal registered a career-best round at the Big Five Invitational, shooting a 70 (-1) in the final round to help him tie for 24th. Saal also had a nice showing at the Georgetown Intercollegiate, finishing the event in a tie for 21st.

FRESHMEN

The Tribe’s incoming freshman class is a talented group of players who not only provide a great foundation for the future, but also have the potential to contribute this season. Jeremy Wells comes to Williamsburg boasting an impressive prep resume. Wells was named All-State in Virginia after placing third at the state tournament in 2009. Wells was also named All-Prep League after helping lead St. Christopher’s to the league title in 2008. Before playing at St. Christopher’s, Wells played three years at Prince George, where he earned multiple honors, including All-Region and All-District accolades. Spencer Kushner also brings strong prep credentials with him to the College this season after starring for St. Margaret’s Episcopal School. Kushner was named first-team All-Academy League on three occasions and All-County in 2008 and 2009. Kushner also earned medalist honors during his time at St. Margaret’s, winning the League Individual Finals event. Rounding out the Tribe’s incoming freshman class is Charles Godfrey, who comes to William and Mary from Berkeley Prep in Tampa,

Florida. While at Berkeley Prep, Godfrey earned four letters in golf and one in lacrosse. During his senior year, Godfrey averaged a score of 73.0.

Last season, the Tribe had a nice showing, placing third out of the 11 CAA teams.

THE COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY

For the Tribe in 2009-10, the senior class will be looked upon not only to produce on the course, but also provide guidance and leadership for a young, talented team. Headlining not only the senior class, but also the team this season will be Morgan Stepanek, who will graduate as one of the finest golfers to ever play for the Green and Gold. In 2008-09, Stepanek set the school record for lowest season scoring average with her total of 77.00. Stepanek also set the school record for lowest 18-hole score with her round of 69 (-3) at the Nittany Lion Invitational. After being named to the All-CAA Second Team for the second consecutive season, Stepanek will look to end her career on a high note and contend for the individual title at the CAA Championship this season. Before this season, Stepanek was named to the CAA’s 25th Silver Anniversary Team, which recognized the best players to have ever played in the conference. The College’s other senior this season is Brielle Paolini out of Virginia Beach, Virginia. After posting three solid campaigns for W&M, Paolini will look to end her career with her best season yet. Last year, Paolini played in five events for the Tribe, with her best finish coming at the Nittany Lion Invitational where she placed 46th.

JUNIORS

The College’s junior class in 2009-10 is a very talented one, and Tribe head coach Jay Albaugh will rely on it to card some great scores for W&M this coming season.

SOPHOMORES

The sophomore class for the Tribe is one that not only played well last season as rookies, but also one that will provide a great foundation and should ensure that the College is a team to be reckoned with for years to come. Leading the group of five sophomores is Caroline Sweet, who quickly made a name for herself around the conference as a rookie. Sweet had a great season, culminating in a 15thplace finish at the CAA Championship. On the year, Sweet averaged a score of 78.30, which ranks sixth all-time in school history. This season, Sweet should be in the hunt for a top-10 finish at the conference championship and earn the first All-CAA accolade of her career. Also looking to build off a great rookie season will be Kristine Rohrbaugh, who saw action

in three tournaments last season. Rohrbaugh made quite the debut, placing third in her first collegiate tournament at the Nittany Lion Invitational with a score of 225 (+9). With her 54-hole score, Rohrbaugh tied the school record for lowest three-round total. Kristen Hamel should also be a contributor this coming year for the Tribe after a very solid freshman season. Hamel showed her potential last season at the ECAC Championship, where she carded a school-record tying score of 69 (-3) in the final round, sparking her to a fourth-place finish. Kelsey Conway will also look to contribute this season when given the chance after getting her career for the Green and Gold off to a good start a year ago. Conway played in three events in 2008-09, with her best finish coming at the ECAC Championship where she placed in a tie for 54th. Rounding out the College’s sophomore class will be transfer Brooke Stepanek, who will join her sister and teammate Morgan at W&M this season. Stepanek, a transfer from Rutgers University, will have three more seasons of eligibility left and will look to play well when given the opportunity this year. Her best finish for the Scarlet Knights came at the Knights Golf Invitational, where she finished in 21st place.

FRESHMEN

The Tribe’s incoming freshman class is a very talented one, and along with the sophomore class provides great hope for the future of the program. Betsy Birchall comes to the College with an impressive prep resume and could contribute immediately for the College in 2009-10. The 2007 Alabama Junior State Champion, Birchall was twice named the Birmingham News Metro Player of the Year. Joining Birchall in Williamsburg this season will be Kaitlyn Hutcherson, who comes to W&M from Greenville, Tennessee. At Greenville High School, Hutcherson owns both the singleseason and career scoring marks and in 2006 earned medalist honors at the Tennessee Women’s Junior Amateur.

AN EXPERIENCE IN EXCELLENCE

WOMEN’S PREVIEW

SENIORS

Leading the junior class will be Sarah Whitney, who through two seasons is well on her way to becoming one of the best golfers to ever come through Williamsburg. Last season, Whitney’s scoring average of 77.35 set the sophomore record and ranks her second all-time in the College overall behind her teammate Morgan Stepanek. In 2008-09, Whitney played her best golf of the season at the CAA Championship, placing in a tie for fifth place, earning a spot on the CAA All-Tournament team. Along with her alltournament selection, Whitney was also named to the All-CAA Second Team in 2009, and this season should compete for the individual title at the conference championship. Also looking to build off a solid sophomore campaign in 2009-10 will be Katie Murphy, who played in all but two tournaments for the Tribe last season. Murphy’s best showing of the season came at the Hoya Invitational, where the Chesapeake, Virginia native finished in a tie for 23rd. Murphy has been very consistent for the College the past two seasons and will look to have a breakout year in 2009-10 for the Green and Gold. Also in her third season, Avi Hockfield will look to build off a pair of campaigns in which the Gladwyne, Pennsylvania product has shown flashes of her potential. Hockfield saw time on the course four times last season for W&M, including the final three tournaments. Her best showing came at the First Market Bank Intercollegiate, where she finished in a tie for 30th.

2009-10 TRIBE GOLF

Coming off one of the most successful seasons in the program’s history, the William and Mary Tribe women’s golf team looks primed to not only have a great season in 2009-10, but also be in contention for the CAA Championship at the end of the year. In 2008-09, the College enjoyed one of its, if not its most successful season in the school’s history. The Tribe started the year in record fashion, winning the Nittany Lion Invitational and setting school records for lowest 36 and 54-hole totals with scores of 602 (+26) and 909 (+45), respectively. The College ended the year with the most wins in program history with a record of 115-50-1, marking the second 100-win season in William and Mary history.

The C ollege of Wi lli am & M ar y Wi l l i a m s bu rg, Va .

The College of William and Mary is a public university located in Williamsburg, Va. Founded in 1693 by Royal Charter issued by King William III and Queen Mary II of England, William and Mary is the second oldest college in the country after Harvard. William and Mary has a long history of liberal arts education and a growing research and science curriculum that demonstrates a strong commitment to undergraduate research. The College, which became a state university in 1906, has been designated a “Public Ivy,” and for nine straight years has been ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the sixth-best public university in the country – and the nation’s top small public university. Also referred to as “the alma mater of a nation,” the College has educated four U.S. Presidents – George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe and John Tyler, which is the third most of any college in the coun0910 try. William and Mary also claims several firsts, including the 1776 creation of Phi Beta Kappa – the country’s first academic honor society – the first honor code of conduct for college students, and the first collegiate law school, established in 1779. William and Mary is also home to the Sir Christopher Wren Building – the country’s oldest academic building still in use – and the President’s House, the oldest home of a university president still in use.

THE COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY ATHLETICS

WILLIAM & MARY FACTS Second oldest educational institution in the U.S. In addition to four U.S. Presidents, W&M has educated a number of this country’s key historical figures, including U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall and 16 signers of the Declaration of Independence. W&M is one of only eight U.S. institutions of higher education designated a “Public Ivy.” A Public Ivy is a stateassisted institution that offers a superior education at a cost far below that of Ivy League schools.

Sunken Gardens

U.S. News ranked W&M sixth among all public colleges and universities and 32nd among both public and private institutions in 2009. Newsweek named W&M “hottest small state university” in 2006.

The College of William and Mary sponsors 23 varsity sports and provides students with a unique and successful balance of athletics and academics. The Tribe Athletics Department finished 117th nationally in the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup Standings for 2008-09, a number that ranked second among Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) programs and fourth in the state of Virginia. The Directors’ Cup, which was created by the NACDA and USA Today in 1993-94, is a program that honors institutions maintaining a broad-based program, achieving success in many sports, both men’s and women’s. W&M has placed among the top 100 nationally in 12 of the program’s 16 years, while leading the CAA on seven occasions. W&M has produced more CAA Championships than any program in the league’s history. The College owns 95 league crowns, nearly 40 more than its closest competitor. The Tribe raked in the awards in 2008-09 as well, tallying a combined 197 all-conference honors, 34 All-America honors and six league players of the year. During the 2008-09 season, the Green and Gold produced an overall athletics winning percentage of 68.2, while racking up a combined 888 wins. Along with its accomplishments on the field of play, the Tribe is just as successful in the classroom, epitomizing the term student-athlete. In the NCAA’s inaugural Academic Progress Report in 2005, W&M ranked fourth among Division I teams, which was the highest of any athletic scholarshipgranting school and of any public school. Since the inception of the CAA Scholar-Athlete of the Year, W&M has produced 28 honorees, more than any school in the conference.

SANDRA DAY O’CONNOR Chancellor Sandra Day O’Connor, one of the most distinguished jurists in the history of the United States Supreme Court—and its first female justice—addressed the most profound legal issues of her age with wisdom, courage, and skill. After a long career in public service, including nearly a quarter century on the nation’s highest court, she retired in 2006. Justice O’Connor spent her childhood on an isolated cattle ranch in southeastern Arizona

Princeton, he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and rowed on the lightweight crew for two years. Reveley went to law school at the University of Virginia, receiving his J.D. in 1968. During the United States Supreme Court’s 1969 term, he clerked for Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. Reveley has extensively studied and written about the constitutional division of the war powers between the President and Congress. In 1972-73, he spent 13 months studying the war powers while an International Affairs Fellow of the Council on Foreign Relations in New York City and a Fellow of the Woodrow Wilson Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C. He is the author of War Powers of the President and Congress: Who Holds the Arrows and Olive Branch? (University of Virginia Press, 1981). Before joining William & Mary, Reveley practiced law for many years at Hunton & Williams, where he specialized in energy matters, especially those involving commercial nuclear power. He was the managing partner of

the firm for nine years. Much of Reveley’s extracurricular time over the years has gone to non-profit organizations. He has served on many educational and cultural boards, including those of Princeton University (where he is a trustee emeritus), Union Theological Seminary in Virginia, St. Christopher’s School, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, JSTOR, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the Virginia Historical Society, the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, the Richmond Symphony, and the Presbyterian Church (USA) Foundation. Reveley and his wife Helen have four children – Taylor, Everett, Nelson and Helen Lanier – and a daughter-in-law, Margaret Louise (Marlo, married to Taylor).

tending to a variety of ranch chores, raising farm animals, and reading voraciously. After completing school in El Paso, Texas, she journeyed west to continue her education at Stanford University, where her professors inspired and challenged her to make a difference in her nation and the world. Justice O’Connor earned a B.A. in economics (magna cum laude) from Stanford University and a LL.B. from Stanford Law School. She was an editor of the law review and graduated third in her law class—two spots behind her friend and future colleague, the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist. After being admitted to the bar, Justice O’Connor served as Deputy County Attorney of San Mateo County, California, from 1952 to 1953, and as a civilian attorney for the U.S. Army Quartermaster Market Center in Frankfurt, Germany, from 1954 to 1957. From 1958 to 1960, she practiced law in Maryvale, Arizona, and served as Assis-

tant Attorney General of Arizona from 1965 to 1969. She was appointed to the Arizona State Senate in 1969, and was subsequently reelected to two two-year terms, during which she served as Majority Leader. In 1975, she was elected Judge of the Maricopa County Superior Court and served until 1979, when she was appointed to the Arizona Court of Appeals. President Reagan nominated her as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, and she took her seat September 25, 1981. She succeeded the Honorable Henry A. Kissinger as Chancellor of the College of William and Mary in 2005. In the years since her investiture, she has visited the College numerous times, visiting classes, talking with students, and addressing academic conferences. She is married to John Jay O’Connor III, whom she met in law school. They have three sons: Scott, Brian, and Jay.


THE COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY ATHLETICS

TERRY DRISCOLL Athletics Director

Under the steady guidance and watchful eye of Terry Driscoll, the William and Mary Athletics Department has solidified its standing as one of the nation’s preeminent broad-based programs. As Driscoll enters his 14th year as athletics director, he has overseen an unprecedented era of improvement in terms of funding and facilities while also maintaining the College’s rich history of producing well-rounded studentathletes. Driscoll oversees a program that is committed to balancing academic demands with athletic success. One of the department’s stated goals each year is to finish among the top 100 in the annual Director’s Cup rankings, which has happened in all but one of the years that Driscoll has been the director. In the last six years, the Tribe’s program has combined for a total of 26 Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) titles. This past season, W&M claimed three CAA titles (Men’s and Women’s Cross Country and Women’s Track & Field). In 2002-03, W&M had a school-record 10 teams compete in the NCAA Tournament, with four teams winning conference titles and six that finished in the top 25 at the end of their respective seasons. Overall, no institution in the CAA can claim more all-time league championships than the 95 William and Mary has earned. As impressive as the athletic accomplishments have been during Driscoll’s tenure, the program’s academic successes have been even greater. In the NCAA’s inaugural (2004) APR rankings, a measurement of academic progress based on academic eligibility, retention, and graduation of student-athletes, W&M was fourth in the nation overall and first among institutions offering athletic performance-based scholarships. Additionally, the Tribe football team has posted a 100 percent graduation rate three times, while the majority of the program’s squads have consistently ranked among the nation’s finest in terms of graduation. In 2002, the CAA started recognizing Scholar-Athletes of the Year for each of the 22 sports it sponsors, and the College has had a conference-high 29 individuals receive the honor. In addition to the many academic and athletic successes, Driscoll’s impact on the program has been equally impressive in terms of physical and financial improvements. Since taking over as athletics director, Driscoll has overseen the construction of more than $20 million in new facilities, including Plumeri Park (baseball), Albert-Daly Field (soccer, lacrosse) and the Busch Courts (tennis). Recently, the College dedicated an $11 million, 30,000 square-foot Jimmye Laycock Football Center at Zable Stadium in the summer of 2008. During the last four years, the venerable stadium has been enhanced with an $800,000-plus video scoreboard (2007), the installation of a $650,000 permanent lighting system (2006) and an $840,000 state-of-the-art Field Turf Pro artificial playing surface (2006). This past summer, new synthetic turf with water cannons were installed at Busch Field, the home of the William and Mary Field Hockey program. In addition to the physical structures, Driscoll has also worked with the Associate Athletics Director for Development, Bobby Dwyer, to increase the annual fund-raising totals for non-capital projects from $1.36 million in 1995 to the current annual total of approximately $2.7 million. A true student-athlete himself, Driscoll’s leadership skills were developed during his collegiate years.

As a student-athlete at Boston College, Driscoll captained the basketball team to the National Invitation Tournament Finals as a senior, and was named the tournament MVP. In addition to being named an All-American, his success in the classroom as a biology major garnered him an Academic All-America honor. After graduating from BC, he was the fourth overall pick of the 1969 NBA Draft, selected by the Detroit Pistons, just three spots after the Milwaukee Bucks chose UCLA’s Lew Alcindor, later to be known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Driscoll chose to play a year in Italy first, but then returned to the U.S. to play for the Pistons, Washington Bullets and Milwaukee Bucks before going back to Italy as a player and then coach until 1980. Driscoll then entered the corporate world in 1980, working for Kazmaier Associates, Inc., an international sporting goods sales and sports marketing firm. After Kazmaier purchased Bike Athletic in 1986, KSG Inc. was formed with the objective of becoming the first, and only, national sales agency in the sporting goods industry. By 1987, Driscoll was president of the company and had expanded the agency to all 50 states just two years later. In early 1990, Driscoll’s contribution to a marketing research project for the NCAA was the initial step moving him from product marketing and sales to sports marketing and management. The result of the project was a joint venture between Kazmaier Associates and Host Communications - with Driscoll being named managing director and chief operating officer of NCAA International. In 1993, Driscoll diversified his experience in the athletic world by working as the venue executive director of the 1994 World Cup site in Boston. In September of that year, Driscoll was again enlisted to launch a new business, Eagle International Group, an event management and services company. As vice president, Driscoll worked with Hawaii Pacific Sports to organize the Women’s World Volleyball Grand Prix competition in Honolulu. Driscoll resides in Williamsburg with his wife, Susan. The couple has two children – Keith, a 1997 graduate of Holy Cross, and Leslie, a 2001 graduate of William and Mary.

THE COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY ATHLETICS

AN EXPERIENCE IN EXCELLENCE

Jimmye Laycock Football Center

Busch Tennis Courts

William and Mary is committed to building and maintaining outstanding facilities for all 23 of its varsity athletic teams. The College has demonstrated this commitment by investing approximately $16 million toward the construction and upgrade of its athletics facilities during just the last six years. Among W&M’s recent projects was the completion of the $11 million, 30,000-square foot Jimmye Laycock Football Center, which was dedicated in June of 2008. This past summer, the Laycock Center renovated the foyer to include photos, information and memorablia on the Tribe’s storied football tradition. This past summer, Busch Field experienced a renovation that included a total revamp of the field, underlying pad, water cannon and drainage system. The renovation created a competition surface that ranks alongside those used at the U.S. National Training Centers in Virginia Beach, Va., Chula Vista, Calif., and that used at last year’s Olympic Games. In 2005, Kaplan Arena received an upgrade with the installation of 6,900-square foot permanent wood floor along with rubberized sports flooring on the open end of the arena to accomodate track and field and other multi-purpose activities. A year earlier, the home of Tribe soccer and lacrosse, Albert-Daly Field was dedicated, providing the programs with a $1 million all-natural grass facility.
