MAKING A MAJOR

IMPACT

Several Trojans on this year’s roster, including coaches, have made a major impact on the Troy softball program over the last couple of years. Senior infielder Nikki Hollett (top right) is already third on Troy’s career home run list with 33 dingers over her previous three seasons. Last season Hollett hit 20 home runs and 56 RBI, each the second most ever in a singleseason in Troy history. Fellow senior Hayden Gann (bottom right) is already in Troy’s career Top 10 for batting average, on-base percentage, doubles, home runs and walks. True freshman Jaycee Affeldt (bottom) is fresh off of a World Championship apperance with the Canadain Junior National in Decemeber in South Africa. Affeldt has already been selected to the 43-athlete pool that will be used to the select the Canadian National Team in June.


A winning

tradition Troy head coach Melanie Davis has recorded 804 career victories, with 706 of them coming as the head of the Troy softball program. The Trojans have posted eight seasons of 40 or more wins under Davis including one NCAA Tournament appearance. Davis has already been inducted into the Alabama ASA Hall of Fame, the West Alabama Softball Hall of Fame, the Wiregrass Hall of the Fame and the Fayette County Sports Hall of Fame. Assistant coach Sharon O’Mara (bottom left) coached the Venezuelan national team in the summer of 2010. She also coached six Australian national championship teams before coming to Troy.


Gameday

EXCITEMENT On gameday in Troy there is not a better place to be than out at the old ballpark with the grills smoking and the games taking place. All of the activities that take place surrounding the game are family-oriented, and easily accessible. Trojan softball is a family affair. Fans, alums and students all come early, donning their cardinal and black to enjoy many activities made available throughout the day, and stay throughout the game giving the Trojans the home field advantage. It’s a special atmosphere for the entire family.


HOME

SUCCESS The Trojans have enjoyed unprecedented success at home since moving to Division I in 1994. Here’s a look at the Trojans’ record at home each season since moving up to Division I. Year W-L-T Pct. 1994 19-5 .792 1995 24-4 .857 1996 14-3-1 .806 1997 18-8 .692 1998 18-7 .720 1999 24-6 .800 2000 17-9 .654 2001 15-9 .625 2002 16-6 .727 2003 16-10 .615 2004 13-7 .650 2005 21-5 .807 2006 10-9 .526 2007 14-7 .667 2008 11-8 .578 2009 16-2 .889 2010 9-6 .600 2011 12-9 .571 TOTAL 287-120-1 .705


TROJAN

NATION For years the Trojan faithful have turned out in force for Troy University athletics, and this season is no different. All home events are well attended and the crowds drive the Trojans to victory, as each athletic team sports outstanding home records. Since moving their home turf in 2002, the Trojans softball team has recorded 138 wins at their facility in just 10 seasons.


WHERE THE TROJANS

LIVE & EAT

TROJAN VILLAGE

Trojan Village offers apartment-style living arrangements in either two- or fourbedroom suites. Each suite consists of shared bathroom facilities, a kitchenette and private bedrooms, in addition to a common living room area. Each room is equipped with high-speed internet and cable television.

DINING

The facility features four “all-you-can-eat” styled dining venues, a retail dining venue and an exterior courtyard on the first floor. Its second floor houses one “all-you-can-eat” styled dining venue, a retail dining venue and two civic meeting rooms.


COMMUNITY

SERVICE The Troy University Department of Athletics always finds a way to give back to the community. The Troy University softball team has always given back to the community each year, and one of the biggest ways is working with the Miracle League. The Trojans have also helped out in many other events in the community in past years. Some of these include the Colley Senior Complex, the annual Troy Fur Fest and many others.


TARA

BLACKWELL Tara is currently working a minimum of five to six days a week to keep her body in shape. She does a lot of motivational speaking work with the underprivileged children in the area. She also holds a youth clinic every January in which the Troy coaching staff participates. The clinic teaches the game of softball to those same kids. “Words cannot describe the admiration and respect I have for Tara. She is one of the hardest workers I have ever known and she has continued this work ethic after her injury. I know that Tara’s unlimited intangible qualities, including her work ethic and determination, will propel her forward as she continues to move toward fulfilling her personal goals.” - Head Coach Melanie Davis


WINNING IN THE

CLASSROOM

Perhaps no other athletic department in the conference, nor in the country, has put more of an emphasis on academics than Troy University. The most important part of the goals set forth by the department is academics, as they vow to make the Trojans “Champions in the Classroom and on the Field.� It is has long been emphasized that the goals for the Trojans are to educate our student-athletes, help them to compete on the field and turn them into model citizens that will represent Troy University in the world.


ACADEMIC

SERVICES

It is the policy of the Athletics Department that each head coach is directly responsible for overseeing the academic progress of each student-athlete in the program. The Office of Student-Athlete Services will assist in the following areas: maintaining an effective academic center, supervision of the computer labs, arranging tutors, monitoring academic success and progress towards degree, assisting with academic advisement/registration, coordination of NCAA and Conference awards and scholarships, and arrangement of academic and lifestyle seminars and workshops (CHAMPS/Life Skills). Student-Athlete Services (SAS) embraces the mission of the University and the Athletics Department to develop well rounded studentathletes through discovery and exploration of knowledge and its application to life-long success. The primary goals of SAS is to develop, nurture, and inspire our student-athletes. SAS aspires to challenge our student-athletes to embrace ownership of their responsibilities.


STRENGTH AND

CONDITIONING Under the direction of head strength and conditioning coach Richard Shaughnessy and his assistants, the Troy University strength and conditioning program is committed to maximizing the on-field performance of every student-athlete. As a testament to Shaughnessy’s success as a strength and conditioning coach, he was inducted as a Master Strength Coach by the College of Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (CSCCA) in May of 2009.


TROJANS SPORTS

MEDICINE Health care is one of the most important aspects of a student-athlete’s life, and no university is more committed to keeping athletes that way like Troy University. Head Athletic Trainer Chuck Ash and his staff make sure that each need of the student-athlete is met, whether it be early morning hours or after class at night.


TROY

UNiversity When it comes to colleges and universities in the state of Alabama, Troy University tops the list, according to Forbes Magazine.

TROY TROJANS SOFTBALL

2012 SEASON PREVIEW PRESEASON STORY LINES • • • •

Although the Trojans welcome 11 newcomers to campus this season, Troy still has an experienced team entering the 2012 season. The Trojans return eight of their nine position starters from a year ago, but have some holes to fill in the circle. All three pitchers from last season’s squad have left, including All-Sun Belt performer Ashlyn Williams who leaves Troy holding nearly every pitching record in the book. Melanie Davis, the only head coach in the 19 years of the Troy softball program, will rely heavily on some young arms to compliment an experienced lineup and defense.

EXPERIENCE AT THE PLATE • • • •

The Trojans had five players that started all 59 games last season, and all five are back for Troy as they look to improve on a 32-27 record from a season ago. Among those is NFCA All-Region performer Nikki Hollett who posted 20 home runs a season ago, the second most ever by a Trojan and the third most in the Sun Belt last season. Returning with Hollett are fellow seniors Hayden Gann, Sarah Harris, Michelle Hewett and Sarah Shields Troy returns its top seven batting averages from a season ago including Hollett, Hewett and Gann who all hit over .300.

REPLACING ONE WITH MANY • • •

For the last four years the Trojans have relied heavily on the arm of Ashlyn Williams to keep them in games. Last season, Williams threw 221.0 of Troy’s 393.0 innings, but the All-Sun Belt pitcher is no longer. In 2012, the Trojans may return to truly balanced pitching staff with multiple arms for the first time in a while as they welcome five new pitchers into the program. Four true freshman and one junior college transfer make up the entirely new pitching staff. Among them is freshman Jaycee Affeldt who spent her winter break playing for the Canadian Junior National Team at the ISF Junior World Championships in South Africa. Affeldt will mix with fellow Canadian Sarah Thomas, Washington native Kelsey Robinson, Tuscaloosa native Ashley Rainey and Gulf Coast Community College transfer Michaela Hamilton to make up the Troy ptching staff.

During her tenure as the volleyball coach, Davis led the Trojans to a 70-44 record, with back-to-back 20-win seasons in 1994 and 1995, placing Troy in the Mid-Continent Conference tournament in each of those seasons. She gave up her volleyball duties in 1995 to focus on softball. She became Troy’s Senior Woman Administrator in 1998, a role she relinquished to former Trojan Softball great Sandy Atkins. Davis has guided the Trojans to postseason conference tournaments each season since 1999. Her teams never finished lower than second in either the regular season or tournament in seven of their eight seasons in the Atlantic Sun Conference. Since joining the Sun Belt Conference in 2006, the Trojans have posted a 203-158 overall record, including a 72-62 mark in conference play. Those five seasons are highlighted by a SBC Tournament Runner-Up finish in 2007 and again in 2010.

In 2003 the Trojans went 39-23 and 16-6 in Atlantic Sun play, capping the program’s 10th consecutive season with at least 30 victories. That season also saw the Trojans pick up wins over No. 3 Nebraska and No. 28 Southern Illinois. The victory over Nebraska on March 8 marked the highest ranked team to ever be toppled by the Trojans. The previous high was a win over No. 17 Florida State on April 30, 2001. Also in the 2003 season, Davis notched her 400th win at Troy. The victory came against Florida A&M on March 18 when the Trojans defeated the Lady Rattlers, 2-1. In 2002, Troy collected 46 victories, the most since 1999. In the process, the Trojans played 10 teams that advanced to the NCAA Regionals. Troy also recorded an 11-game winning streak to end the month of April, marking the second-longest winning streak in school history. In 2001, Davis guided Troy to a 38-23 record and a 7-7 record in the A-Sun, which placed the Trojans as the sixth-seed at the A-Sun Championship. After falling in the first round to top-seeded Florida Atlantic, Troy won three consecutive games to advance to the championship round against FAU. The Owls claimed the victory, 1-0, to clinch their fourth straight A-Sun title. Two years prior, in 1999, Troy finished the season with a 48-23 record and was seeded No. 2 in the tournament. The Trojans again fell to the Owls in the championship game. In 1996, Troy made its first appearance in the NCAA Regionals, advancing from its Mid-Continent Conference championship and a win over Southeast Missouri at home in the NCAA play-in series. Troy finished the season with a 47-22-1 record after losing to South Florida and eventual national champion Arizona in Phoenix. During the 1995 season, Davis guided the Trojans to a school-record 5218 overall season record, 8-4 Mid-Con record, and an appearance in the Mid-Continent Conference tournament. During the second round of the tournament, the Trojans fell to eventual champion DePaul.

In addition to winning the A-Sun title in 2005, Davis’ team swept perennial national power Florida State, split a doubleheader with No. 17 Georgia Tech and ended the season ranked No. 27 in the National Fastpitch Coaches Association/USA Today Coaches Poll. The Trojans 2004 season saw the Lady Trojans go 35-30 with a 15-5 record in the Atlantic Sun. Defeats of Penn State and Maryland highlighted the Trojans non-conference schedule. The Trojans had two four-game winning streaks and three three-game winning streaks. Troy also faced No. 3 Florida State, No. 22 Georgia Tech, and No. 23 Auburn during the season but fell short against each.

In 2011, Williams earned the first ever NFCA Top Performer of the Week Award in Troy’s history and was named Sun Belt Pitcher of the Week twice. Williams also recorded 288 strikeouts, which brought her career total to 1,305, which ranks as the 17th highest total all-time in NCAA Division I history. Williams also finished her career with 93 wins and 25 shutouts. During the 2010 season, the Trojans’ pitching staff finished with an ERA of 2.83 - and just 2.12 in Sun Belt Conference play - with then-junior pitcher Ashlyn Williams breaking Troy’s single-season strikeout record. She recorded 402 strikeouts, breaking the record she set in the previous season. During the 2009 season, her first with Troy, the Trojans pitching staff finished with a 38-19 record. Under O’Mara’s guidance, pitcher Ashlyn Williams earned first team All-Sun Belt honors, was named a Sun Belt Pitcher of the Week, and garnered All-Region honors. Williams finished the 2009 season with a 25-13 record and broke Troy’s single season strikeout record (312). Before coming to Troy she coached six Australian national championship teams. O’Mara, a native of New South Wales, Australia, has served as the pitching coach for the New South Wales Institute of Sport (NSWIS) since 2006. There she helped guide the team to a National Championship in January 2008 with one of her pitchers being named Pitcher of the Tournament after throwing a no-hitter in the finals.

O’Mara got her coaching start with Manly Warringah where she coached from 1988 until 2007 serving as head coach, assistant coach and battery coach at various times. As a player O’Mara starred with NSW Schoolgirls in 1986 while winning a national championship before moving on to play with the Manly Warringah Open Squad from 1991-1996.

O’Mara has also coached multiple U-16 teams to National Championships including titles from 2003-2005 and 2001 along with a 3rd place finish in 2002. “Sharon is an authority in the areas of both pitching and battery and is one of the most respected coaches in the Australian softball world. We are extremely excited to bring an international coach on board from one of the strongest programs outside the United States.” “The expertise she brings as a pitching and battery coach will prove most valuable as everyone readily admits the importance these two areas play in a program’s overall success,” Coach Davis said. O’Mara’s coaching experience is not limited to Australia; as in May 2010, she was selected as the pitching coach for the Venezuelan National Team and helped the team to their highest-ever world ranking.

She had previously instructed in Canada in 2005, and also served as the pitching instructor at the Higher Ground Softball Camp in Georgia. “We have been successful recruiting in Australia in the past and having Sharon join our staff sends a strong message to the elite athletes of Australia as to the success and strength of our softball program as well as Troy University,” Davis said. O’Mara has completed multiple International Softball Federation certification courses, including Level 5, the highest certification available, an accomplishment she completed in 1998. She also holds Level 5 certification from the Australian Softball Federation. Since 2004, O’Mara has been featured as an instructor and lecturer by the Australian Softball Federation on the topics of pitching and catching.

TROY TROJANS SOFTBALL

1996 MID-Continent Champions The 1996 season began with an uneventful sweep of Faulkner, but little did anyone know what would happen over the next four months. The Lady Trojans were coming off a season in which they won a schoolrecord 52 games, but lost their first two games in the Mid-Continent Conference Tournament. But in Melanie Davis’ third season at Troy, something clicked and sent the team on the ride of a lifetime. After sweeping Faulkner in a doubleheader opener, the Lady Trojans lost the first game of a doubleheader to Nicholls State and tied in the second game, 0-0, when there wasn’t enough light left to play. With a 2-1-1 record, the Lady Trojans hosted the Troy Invitational, bringing in Tennessee State, Middle Tennessee, Florida A&M and Jacksonville State. TSU went 4-1 to claim the tournament title, beating Jacksonville State, 1-0, in the title game. After splitting doubleheaders with Mercer and Georgia Southern on the road, Troy went to the Georgia State Invitational. The Lady Trojans went 2-1, beating Georgia State and Tennessee Tech, but fell to arch rival Jacksonville State. Then everything began to click. The Lady Trojans went to Tallahassee, Fla., and split a doubleheader with perennial national power Florida State. After splitting a doubleheader with Jacksonville State, the Lady Trojans lost their first two games in the spring Rebel Games. Troy bounced back to win four in a row after that and finished the tournament with a 7-3 record. The Lady Trojans then headed to Birmingham, splitting two games in the Samford Invitational, beating Evansville and falling to Tennessee Tech. TSU bounced back by sweeping Samford at home three days later. With a two-game winning streak, the Lady Trojans headed to the Georgia Tech Invitational for more tournament competition. Troy struggled, going 2-4 and losing its last three games. With a difficult non-conference schedule behind them and having made it through with a winning record, going 27-14 after rounding it out with a sweep of Jacksonville State on the road, the Lady Trojans prepped for conference play. Troy opened its conference schedule with a doubleheader split against

Youngstown State, but was swept by national power DePaul on the road. With a 1-3 record in conference play, the Lady Trojans had their backs against the wall and came out firing. Troy swept a doubleheader against Central Connecticut State to salvage the first trip through the Mid-Continent East Division. The Troy offense continued its hot streak, sweeping back-to-back doubleheaders against Florida A&M, scoring at least eight runs in all four wins. The Lady Trojans then headed back to Birmingham and split a doubleheader against Samford, dropping a 4-3 decision in the nightcap. On April 26, the Lady Trojans started their final three-day, six-game Mid-Con trip by routing Central Connecticut State twice. After falling to Youngstown State, 1-0, in the opening game the next day, Troy won the nightcap, 5-4, setting up a showdown with DePaul the next day. Troy came out and played its best two games, sweeping the Blue Demons to finish Mid-Con play with an 8-4 record and momentum heading into the conference tournament. The Lady Trojans came out in the first round against Western Illinois and struggled offensively, dropping the opener, 5-0. With their backs against the wall again, Troy came out firing, beating Eastern Illinois, 5-4, and Western Illinois, 4-3, to set up another showdown against DePaul, this time for the championship.

Troy knew it had to win both games to claim the title and picked up a 6-5 win in the opener to force a deciding game. Troy then jumped on the Blue Demons early and won the Mid-Con with a 5-3 victory. With the win, the Lady Trojans advanced to the NCAA Play-In series, hosting the Ohio Valley Conference champion, Southeast Missouri. The Lady Trojans came out and played two solid games, sweeping the best-ofthree series with a 3-2 win in the opener and a 1-0 win in the nightcap to advance to the NCAA Regionals. Troy was shipped to the NCAA West Regional as the No. 4 seed, where the Lady Trojans faced No. 1 seed Arizona in the first round. The Wildcats took control early and showed why they were the No. 2-ranked team in the nation, winning easily, 8-0. The Lady Trojans then slipped into the loser’s bracket, where they faced No. 3 seed South Florida. Troy held the lead until the fifth, but fell, 6-5, and was eliminated from the tournament. Troy had four players earn first-team all-conference honors and two players earn second-team accolades. Second baseman Jill Buckley, outfielders Mitzi McLendon and Jennifer Garnett, along with pitcher Megan Schultz, made the first-team. Shortstop Staci Boyette and pitcher Shawn Starling earned secondteam honors.

1996 NCAA TOURNAMENT By Jim Egan Troy Messenger The magical season of the Lady Trojans came to a halt as the Troy State softball team was eliminated from the NCAA Division I Regionals. The Trojans (47-22-1) took an 8-0 beating from the Arizona Wildcats, who are ranked second in the nation. Arizona jolted out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning. All the runs were unearned due to back-to-back dropped fly balls, and another baserunner scored on an RBI single by Krista Gomez. The second inning was even more horrifying for the Lady Trojans. The highlight of the inning was when All-America Jenny Dalton crushed a grand slam home run, giving the Wildcats an 8-0 cushion. The winning pitcher was Wildcat ace Carrie Nolan, who earned her 11th complete game shutout of the year. The loser was Shawn Starling (15-6), who was pulled out of the game before completing two innings. Jean Salkeld came in to relieve Starling, but the damage had already been done. The TSU offense sputtered, so the game was called after five innings due to the eight-run rule. The Lady Trojans then played and lost to South Florida, 6-5 in eight innings, in the loser’s bracket of the tournament. South Florida drew first blood by scoring four runs in the second inning. Lauren McClendon ripped an RBI-double and later scored on Teresa Palladino’s slap-single. Wright drove in another run with a bloop hit and Melissa Sigmon scored on a throwing error. The Trojans answered back in the third with a run when Michele Falk scored on Mitzi McLendon’s infield single. TSU took a 5-4 lead in the bottom of the fifth on three hits and three errors. Staci Boyette doubled in pinch-runner Sherry Bodnar and later scored when USF’s McClendon dropped a sure out at first base. Troy’s McClendon scored the tying run when a fielder’s choice ground ball was misplayed at second. Jill Buckley gave the Trojans the lead when she raced home as McClendon dropped another ball at first. USF tied the game back at five in the top of the sixth when Rhonda Wooder scored on Wright’s suicide squeeze bunt. #1 Arizona Arizona #4 Troy State #2 Florida St. #3 South Fla.

Neither team could score again until the top of the eighth, when Wright drove in her third run of the game on a deep fly to center that scored Wooder from third to make the score 6-5 in favor of USF. The Lady Trojans tried to make a desperate comeback but failed. The Trojans had a small rally started with two out but a controversial call at third base ended the Trojans’ season in a heartbeat. Barbara Sherwood dove into second to avoid a line drive double play and was apparently held down by Wooder, USF’s second baseman. The third base umpire initially displayed the obstruction signal, prompting Sherwood to be signalled to third by coach Melanie Davis. However, a controversial call interpretation of the obstruction rule involving double jeopardy resulted in Sherwood being called out, ending the Lady Trojans rally. Monica Triner earned the win in relief. Triner allowed four runs on seven hits in four-and-one-third innings of action. USF’s starter, Jennifer Thompson, came back in the eighth inning to get the save. Shawn Starling, TSU’s third pitcher of the game, was saddled with her second loss of the tournament.

UCF scored eight runs on six hits while the Trojans committed one error as the Golden Knights took an 11-8 lead over Troy. The bottom of the sixth would be the Trojans downfall as UCF took game two 11-8. UCF clinched a spot in the Atlantic Sun Tournament with the split

In its third season of Division I competition Troy won the Mid-Con conference title in 1996 and advanced to the NCAA Division I Regional. In 2005, Troy won its second title in its final season as a member of the Atlantic Sun conference. Troy then advanced to the A-Sun tournament where it lost to UCF in the finals and was named tournament runner-up. The Trojans would reach the finals of the Sun Belt Conference tournament in 2007, and again in 2010, dropping both of those contests. Where They Are Now- Troy Associate Athletics Director/Senior Woman Administrator Sandy Atkins played for the Troy softball team from 1994-95. In two seasons with the Trojans Atkins earned all-conference honors both years. Atkins holds the school record for career batting average (.359) and is fifth alltime for career stolen bases (67). Atkins holds the school record for runs scored in a season (54) and hits in a season (85). Atkins is also second in the Troy record books for stolen bases in a season (36), third for at bats in a season (228) and sixth for batting average in a season (.373). Atkins has worked within the Troy athletics department since 2001. Former Trojan Barbara Sherwood is now the pitching coach for Virginia Tech.

She spent one season as the head coach of the Akron Racers of the National Pro Fastpitch League. In her only season with the Racers, her staff earned the Diamond Sports 2009 Coaching Staff of the Year award.
