The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) has been an autonomous member of the University of Alabama system since 1969, and has been an intercollegiate athletic program since 1977. UAB is sometimes confused with the University of Alabama (Crimson Tide), which is located in Tuscaloosa; while this is inevitable, it is important to note that the two are indeed separate institutions. In addition, the UAB name is often altered by various media, opponents, merchandisers, etc. Please note that there are only two correct versions of our name, the acronym “UAB,” or the full “University of Alabama at Birmingham.” In addition the Associated Press sports stylebook now uses UAB on first reference, not Alabama-Birmingham. We are:

UAB University of Alabama at Birmingham We are not: Alabama-Birmingham, Ala.-Birmingham, or U.A.B. 1

UAB Softball Field

The UAB softball team opened UAB Softball Field on Feb. 23, 2010. The Blazers recorded one of the most successful seasons in program history in 2010, finishing with an overall record of 37-22 and earning the program’s first-ever NCAA tournament berth. UAB posted a 13-6 home record in its inaugural season at UAB Softball Field. The complex is adjacent to and to the south of the existing baseball complex, Jerry D. Young Memorial Field, and it has required demolition of the former tennis complex that was encompassed by 12th Street South. The new facility includes the following amenities: * Recessed dugouts with restroom facilities * Bullpens for each team * Scorer’s platform with public address system * Ample storage * Field lighting * Seating for 350 * New state-of-the-art scoreboard with video capability with a 13.5 x 17 foot screen The recessed dugouts each house approximately 500 square feet of space, including one restroom. The bullpens for each team are located on the corners of the outfield just past each dugout. The space is comfortable for two pitchers to be able to warm up at any given time. The scorer’s platform features a working area for gameday staff that includes housing of the scoreboard/video board controls, sound system controls, and the public address announcer microphone. The area also has a both phone and data capabilities for gameday operation and visiting media. The public address system features four speakers mounted to light posts around the backstop and dugouts. The control unit is located inside the scorer’s platform. A storage room with approximately 140 square feet is adjacent to the home dugout on the first-base side. There are two additional areas in the covered hitting facility that provide an estimated total of 800-1,000 square feet of storage. Six poles have been mounted around the facility to provide lighting for prac7

tice and games when ambient light is not satisfactory. Metal bleacher seating areas are located behind the backstop and in between the dugouts for a maximum capacity of 350 people. All seats will be sold as general admission on a first-come, first-served basis. Information on season or single-game tickets to UAB softball may be found by going to www.uabsports.com. Currently, the new UAB softball complex will share restroom and concessions facilities with the UAB baseball facility, Young Memorial Field. As part of an new partnership agreement with IMG Sports, the Blazers’ multimedia rights holder, UAB has added new, state-of-the art scoreboards for Bartow Arena, Young Memorial Field, and the new on-campus softball facility. The scoreboards, which will be produced by industry leader Daktronics, will provide additional information and video capabilities that will feature LED technology while offering expanded inventory opportunities for corporate partners. The video equipment will be often run by a new mobile unit that will provide live game production Top Crowds services and instant replay capabilities.

2012 Preview Coming off one of the most successful seasons in program history, the UAB softball team eagerly awaits the 2012 campaign and the opportunity to build on last year’s achievements. The 2012 squad returns 15 letterwinners and six starting position players, including 2011 All-Conference-USA Second Team selection Mandy Lowman and C-USA All-Freshman Team and NFCA All-Region Second Team member Leigh Streetman. Head coach Marla Townsend, in her 14th season with the Blazers, will guide the veteran laden group. Five newcomers will provide additional depth to the roster. “We look at this group of seniors. They’ve had a large role in our success over the years. Whether it’s on the field or off the field, they are just a very solid group,” Townsend said. “I’m excited to see them in action knowing it’s their final year. We’ve already seen the influences of their leadership on our underclassmen.” Pitching Staff UAB returns four pitchers from last season’s 2011 NCAA tournament team in senior Amber Torres, junior Lauren Webster and sophomores Lannah Campbell and Leigh Streetman. “All of them are throwing extremely well,” Townsend said. “We expect them to really work hard to earn the ball. “We look at using all four of them on a regular basis. Their pitching early on in the tournaments will dictate the number of times they get the call. They are being very competitive.” Torres made eight appearances in the circle in 2011 with four starts. In 17 innings of work she fanned 11 batters. Over 18 total appearances and eight starts in the circle, Webster compiled a 10-3 record with a 1.68 ERA. She allowed the least amount of hits (53), earned runs (14), runs (22) and walks (8) in Conference USA. The Mathews, Ala. native, fanned 68 batters in 58.1 innings of work, holding the opposition to just a .235 hitting clip. Webster, who also saw 41 starts at second base last season, will mainly focus on pitching in 2012, but could also help the team out at second base and at the plate as well. “Lauren is throwing extremely well and her first and foremost responsibility is pitching,” Townsend said. “She is a good defender and effective at the plate, so I could see her playing at second again this year, too.” Campbell appeared 14 times in the circle, making three starts. She registered a 2-2 record and a 1.56 ERA. The Satsuma, Ala. native struck out 36 batters in 31.1 innings. Streetman made 42 appearances and 22 starts. The C-USA All-Freshman Team and NFCA All-Region Second Team selection ranked 8

16th in the nation with a 1.34 ERA. The Hueytown, Ala. native, tallied seven saves, ranking fifth in the country and first in the league. She held opponents to a .192 batting average and fanned 194 batters in 182.1 innings of work. Catcher Senior standout Mandy Lowman, who started all 58 games behind the plate for the Blazers last year, will return as the starter for the 2012 season. The Huntsville, Ala. native, was named to the All-C-USA Second Team and owned a .242 batting average. She knocked in 20 runs, and her 29 walks were tops on the team and third-best in the league. She also tallied the third-most putouts (412) and tied first in runners caught stealing (17) in C-USA. Junior college transfer Chandler Orr is also an outstanding catcher. Orr came to UAB from Wallace Hanceville CC, where she played in 51 games and recorded a .295 batting average. Junior Anna Kimbrell could also see time behind the plate. Kimbrell transferred to UAB from Samford her sophomore year. “Mandy will be behind the plate and we have Chandler Orr and Anna Kimbrell who are also a catchers,” Townsend. “Mandy is an outstanding leader on the field and does a great job behind the plate communicating defenses. Obviously her performance at the plate is outstanding.” Infield The 2012 roster returns six position starters with the addition of two newcomers, providing the Blazers with plenty of depth in the infield this season. “The field is wide open. I can tell you five set starters, so we have another five positions wide open,” Townsend said. “Last year I went in wanting to play a lot of people early on. This year I have a different mindset. I want to get the roster set as early as possible. It’s going to be interesting because we have five positions open for the taking.” At the hot corner, juniors Kate Armstrong and Issa Brown and sophomore Kristen McGrath will be competing to be the primary starter. Armstrong started all 58 games a season ago, registering a .265 batting average and a .374 slugging percentage. The Vestavia Hills, Ala. native, notched a team-high 11 doubles and drove in 24 runs. She collected 58 putouts and 88 assists with just eight errors for a .948 fielding percentage. In 2011, McGrath was mainly used as a designated hitter and started 34 games for the Blazers in that role. She batted a .211 with nine runs and 18 RBI on 24 hits. At shortstop, there is a three-way competition among senior Catherine Crawford, redshirt-freshman Heather Pearson and freshman Hayley Davis.

2012 Preview Last season, Crawford started all 58 games, splitting time between second base, shortstop and left field. She finished the season with a .238 batting average and her 25 runs scored were second most on the team. Pearson redshirted the 2011 season and has been taking reps at shortstop during practice. Freshman Hayley Davis is also in the running for a starting role in the infield. Davis, a native of Tarpon Springs, Fla., hit for a .489 batting average with four triples, five home runs and knocked in 36 runs for East Lake High School. “It really comes down to if you’re performing at the plate, we’ll find a spot for you defensively,” Townsend said. “We believe that everybody is very sound defensively and so it’s just a matter of their offensive production to determine their playing time.” Second base could see playing time by redshirt junior Maegan Hornsby, freshman Amy Dennis and Webster. Although Webster’s main responsibility is pitching she is a very strong defensive player. Dennis, a product of Mobile, Ala., will be counted on to produce offensively for the Blazers. “Amy sees the ball really well and has a great understanding of the game,” Townsend said. “Hayley is doing extremely well at shortstop, too.” Senior Erica Sisson will start at first base, but senior Kayla Orr and sophomore Megan McGrath could also see time at that position. Sisson started 42 games primarily at first base last season where she tallied the second-most putouts (212) for UAB and committed just four errors for a .982 fielding percentage. “Kayla will be on the field,” Townsend said. “Whether it’s first base or the outfield, Kayla will see significant playing time and be a part of the starting lineup.” Orr is a solid offensive and defensive contributor for UAB. The Hartselle, Ala. product, started all 58 games from a year ago splitting time between first base and shortstop. She led the Blazers with 73 total bases, batted a .272 average and recorded 49 hits. She also crossed the plate 24 times, drove in a teamhigh 32 runs, registered 10 multi-hit games and tallied seven multiRBI games. “When we are out there going through defense, we have three different groups going through,” Townsend said. “The defense will be playing with different people at every rotation and they don’t skip a beat. It’s amazing. “We have so many options in the infield and it’s not where they are just comfortable with the same person next to them, they are comfortable with every single person. That is exciting and I think it’s going to be a huge part of our success.” 9

Outfield The outfield will see a lot of competition due to the departures of 2011 seniors Caley Walden and Sallie Van Kirk. Senior Tiffany Smith, junior transfer Whitney Fletcher and junior Hailey Glynn will see time in the grass. Orr, Crawford, Davis, Dennis and freshman Anna Theriot could also play in the outfield. “Cat will definitely see playing time,” Townsend said. “Hailey and Cat could share time in left field, but Whitney is our starting centerfielder. “Right field is open for the taking. Kayla could spend some time there as well as Tiffany.” Fletcher transferred to UAB from Northwest Florida State College where she was a two-time, first-team all-conference selection. The Decatur, Ala. native, led the Raiders to a 41-9 overall finish in 2011, sharing the Panhandle Conference title, and played in all 50 games. She had a .424 batting average with 35 RBI and 57 runs scored last season. Either Glynn or Crawford could play on Fletcher’s right. Last season, Glynn started 27 games in the outfield. She recorded a .214 batting average and crossed the plate nine times. Smith’s primarily served as the pinch runner last season, appearing in 47 games. She also started eight games in right field, tallying 10 hits and two doubles. On the base paths she scored 17 runs and swiped 15 bases on 19 attempts. “Outfield is another position where if you are producing at the plate you could see yourself playing there,” Townsend said. “We are giving a lot of individuals playing time in the outfield.” Schedule The 2012 schedule features 56 games, including 19 at the UAB Softball Field. The Blazers will face 11 opponents this season that received NCAA tournament berths a year ago, including NCAA Super Regional participants Alabama, Arizona, Houston and Kentucky. At the conclusion of the 2012 regular season, the Blazers will welcome the top eight teams in the league when UAB hosts the 2012 Conference USA Championship, May 10-12, for the first time in school history. “When you put the schedule together, you have an idea about what you want to do. You want to schedule the toughest competition possible, but yet you want to be able to compete,” Townsend said. “I think we’ve done a good job of that this year by playing a lot of teams we haven’t faced before and places we haven’t played before like the FIU and Arizona tournaments, as well as going to two SEC tournaments.” UAB will kick off the 2012 campaign at the FIU Combat Classic, Feb. 10-12, at the FIU Softball Complex in Miami, Fla. UAB will take on FIU and Louisville, along with first-time opponents Illinois, Michigan State and UMass.

Head Coach Marla Townsend For Townsend and her 2007 Blazer squad, the season featured several record-breaking performances and new milestones. Townsend earned her 200th career victory in February as the Blazers won the USF “The Game” Tournament. UAB’s success continued in March when the Blazers defeated a top 25-ranked opponent for the first time in three years, knocking off No. 18 Southern Illinois. The Blazers finished the season 31-27 (10-13 C-USA), marking the third time in history that Townsend’s squad has topped the 30-win plateau. Individuals on the team broke single-season records for batting average, hits, doubles, home runs, walks, fielding percentage, batters struck out, wins and ERA. Centerfielder Lindsay Stanley, who broke the school’s career record with 100 stolen bases, earned first-team all-conference honors, while shortstop Krzan was named to the second team. The 2006 season marked the Blazers’ best campaign in four years as they finished 31-22 overall and tied for second in Conference USA. Townsend guided her team to a 15-9 C-USA record, best in UAB’s history, and received the C-USA Coach of the Year award. The Blazers earned six spots on the C-USA All-Conference teams. Krzan and Stanley took home first-team honors, while Nelson and Kayla Harris were named to the second-team. Harris, along with Andrea Rogers, also earned all-freshman honors. During the 2005 season, Townsend led the Blazers to a 23-37 mark as UAB finished seventh in the conference. UAB posted 16 nonconference wins throughout the season. Stanley was named second-team all-conference while Amanda Antonovich was named to the allfreshman team. UAB had 12 players named to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll and six were named NFCA All-American Scholar Athletes. The 2004 campaign saw the Blazers post at least 20 wins for the fifth season in a row and was one in which UAB claimed two tournament titles. UAB also placed two players on the allconference team, as Beth Mullins was named to the second team and Krzan made the all-freshman squad. In 2003, the Blazers posted their fourthconsecutive 20-win campaign and advanced to the Conference USA Tournament for the fourth straight season. UAB ended the year with 28 victories and posted a 6-5 win over the eighthranked Oklahoma Sooners. The victory in Norman, Okla. marked UAB’s first win versus a top25 ranked opponent and signified the program’s first victory against a former NCAA Champion. Prior to the 2002 season, UAB was picked

to finish seventh in the C-USA preseason polls, but Townsend’s team proved the critics wrong by placing third in the regular-season standings with a 14-10 record. The program’s accomplishments did not go unnoticed as Townsend was named the C-USA Coach of the Year by a vote of her peers in the coaching community. The 2002 Blazers improved upon the momentum that they built during the regular season as UAB advanced deep into the C-USA Tournament in Tampa, Fla. The Blazers finished the three-day event as the runner-up of the postseason competition after the team swept C-USA rival Southern Miss en route to the championship game. UAB’s 2-1 extra-inning loss in the title game against perennial power DePaul may have ended the Blazers’ season, but the strong finish gave Townsend and her team plenty of optimism for the future. The Blazers achieved a school-record 39-22 mark in 2002 and turned in a program-best, 10-game winning streak during the spring season. The 10-consecutive wins proved to be the seventhbest mark in C-USA history. The Blazers’ success in 2002 followed a rigorous 2001 season in which UAB finished with a 27-35 overall mark and ended the year as the sixth-place team in the C-USA standings (1011 record). The Blazers led the nation in double plays turned and registered a team-high mark of 35 during the 2001 season. In 2000 -- UAB’s inaugural season -- Townsend guided the team to a 23-38 overall record and a fifth-place finish in the conference. Townsend led the Blazers to a 9-7 record against in-state competition. 11

UAB was not Townsend’s first head coaching position.

The club won the ASA regional title and the state championship in both seasons.

Townsend is a two-time recipient of the Jefferson County Softball Coach of the Year award, was named the Shelby County Softball Coach of the Year and has also garnered high accolades as a player. Townsend earned First-Team AllAmerica recognition in both fastpitch and slowpitch competition in 1992 and was a valuable outfielder on several national championship slowpitch teams.

2011 Season In Review 2011 Year in Review The Blazers completed one of their most successful seasons in program history in 2011. The Green and Gold finished last season with a 39-19 overall record and 17-6 Conference USA mark. UAB’s league record was the best in school history, surpassing the 2010 team’s 15-win mark. Tied The Most Wins In UAB History With 39 wins, UAB tied the record for most wins in program history, set by the 2002 squad (39-22). The Blazers picked up the record-tying win when they blanked Florida State, 2-0, in the opening game of the Athens Regional in the 2011 NCAA Softball Championship on May 20. Second-Straight NCAA Appearance The UAB softball team achieved its second NCAA Championship bid in as many years. The Blazers received one of the tournament’s 34 at-large invitations.

30-Win Mark The 2011 season was the second-straight year that the Blazers earned at least 30 wins and the fifth 30-win season in UAB lore. The Blazers earned their 30th win with a 7-0 victory over Jacksonville State on April 15. In addition, UAB began conference play with a perfect 6-0 record, another first in school history. The Blazers swept back-to-back league series against then-No. 25 Houston and Southern Miss. All-Conference Honorees Centerfielder Caley Walden was named to the All-Conference USA First Team and catcher Mandy Lowman earned second-team honors. Pitcher Leigh Streetman rounded out the Blazer honorees, earning all-freshman team accolades. Walden and Lowman each earned their second career all-conference accolades. Walden was named to the all-freshman team in 2008, while Lowman received first-team honors in 2010. Streetman’s Strikeouts Freshman pitcher Leigh Streetman recorded 10 strikeouts in UAB’s 2-0 win against Kennesaw State on April 12. She topped that performance with 12 strikeouts against East Carolina on April 16, marking the most of her career and most for any Blazer pitcher last season.

2011 Season In Review The Blazers made a late rally in their tournament opener against Radford (2/25), scoring four runs in the sixth inning to defeat the Highlanders, 7-5. The Green and Gold picked up a pair of shutout victories the next day (2/26), defeating Stephen F. Austin 2-0, before downing Eastern Illinois 3-0 in the nightcap. The Blazers then tallied 11 hits, including three home runs, en route to a 6-0 win over Alabama State in their Magic City Classic finale. Orr, Walden Receive Magic City Classic Honors Shortstop Kayla Orr was named MVP Player of the Magic City Classic and centerfielder Caley Walden was tabbed to the all-tournament team. Orr hit .500 with six hits, three runs and six RBI in the Blazers’ four games. She also blasted the team’s first long ball of the season against Alabama State, which was followed up by two more UAB homers in the contest. Walden, UAB’s leadoff hitter, posted a .400 batting average with three runs and six total bases for the weekend. NFCA All-Region Team UAB freshman pitcher Leigh Streetman was named to the Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division I Mideast All-Region Second Team. Streetman became the fifth Blazer in program history to earn allregion accolades. The freshman hurler joined Mandy Lowman (2010), Kayla Orr (2010), Martina Landrum (2009, 2010) and Lauren Webster (2010) as the five Blazers to ever receive all-region accolades. Streetman’s honor also marked the third straight year UAB had at least one representative on the all-region teams.

Lowman earned the all-academic honor for the second straight year, joining current assistant coach Holly Krzan as the only Blazers to receive the honor multiple times. A native of Huntsville, Ala., she is a math major and maintained a 3.86 GPA. Van Kirk received the honor after carrying a 3.88 GPA as a nursing major. The Athens, Ala., native was second on the team with a .281 batting average and started all but one contest. Post-Graduate Scholarships Natalie Mitchell, who completed her playing career in 2011, was selected to receive an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship. Mitchell, who also received the Jim Castañeda Postgraduate Scholarship from Conference USA, was one of only three softball players and the only C-USA student-athlete to earn an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship in Spring 2011. Mitchell, a native of Kingston, Pa., graduated in May 2011 with a 4.0 GPA and a bachelor’s degree in molecular biology with a minor in chemistry. She was accepted into the Fifth Year Master’s Program in the UAB Department of Biology. An infielder on the softball diamond, Mitchell started 95 games over her final three years with the program and finished her senior campaign with a .366 on-base percentage and committed just three errors in the field.

12 Years and Counting The 2011 season marked the 12th year of competition for UAB softball. The Blazers have an all-time record of 343-355 (.492) and a Conference USA record of 128-137 (.483). UAB has recorded five 30-win seasons and reached seven conference tournaments, including reaching the 2002 championship game. C-USA All-Academic Teams UAB leftfielder Catherine Crawford, catcher Mandy Lowman and rightfielder Sallie Van Kirk were each named to the 2011 Conference USA Softball All-Academic Team. The trio represents the most selections in program history and the most among any CUSA team last year. Crawford carried a 3.90 GPA in psychology. As a starter in all 58 of the Blazers’ contests last season, Crawford hit .238 and drove in 19 runs. The Hueytown, Ala., native was 7-of-8 in stolen bases and her 25 runs were second on the team.

The conference unveiled its name, logo and commissioner on April 24, 1995 in Chicago. The league’s charter members included Charlotte, Cincinnati, DePaul, Houston, Louisville, Marquette, Memphis, Saint Louis, Southern Miss, Tulane, UAB and USF. Eleven of the institutions began athletic participation in 1995, while Houston joined competition in the fall of 1996.

Britton Banowsky was named Commissioner in October 2002, succeeding Mike Slive, the league’s first commissioner. C-USA added East Carolina (September, 1996) and the United States Military Academy (March, 1997) as football members. ECU began league competition in 1997; Army in 1998 and UAB began football play in 1999. The league added TCU and ECU (1999) for all sports and they began competition in 2001. USF started C-USA football in 2003. After celebrating its 10th Anniversary during the 2004-05 season, C-USA began a new chapter in 2005-06 when its current membership came together to form the new look of the league. Since its formation, C-USA has established a strong foundation, an identity and a history that reflects the league’s national presence. Fifteen years of remarkable history has reinforced the league’s position in collegiate athletics, setting the course for the next decade and beyond.

Dr. Carol Garrison, President

AB President and alumna Carol Garrison has had an extraordinary view of her alma mater. She took her first full-time job in UAB Hospital, during the university’s formative years in the 1970s, then earned her master’s degree from UAB. When she returned to campus in fall 2002, as UAB’s sixth president, the young, dynamic institution had evolved into a world-renowned research university and medical center. A Montclair, New Jersey native, Dr. Garrison earned her bachelor’s (1974) and Ph.D. in epidemiology (1982) from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. She was a faculty member, department chair,

B

dean and provost at the University of South Carolina (1982-1997). She joined the University of Louisville as provost in 1997 and was appointed interim president there in early 2002. As president of UAB, Dr. Garrison also chairs the board of the UAB Health System, which includes UAB Hospital, The Kirklin Clinic, and other of UAB’s nationally ranked patient care facilities. During Dr. Garrison’s tenure, UAB has enjoyed remarkable growth and development. Recent years have seen the opening of state-of-the-art facilities such as the North Pavilion of UAB Hospital and the Shelby Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Building, Heritage Hall and the burgeoning Campus Green along University Boulevard, and most recently, the UAB Women & Infants Center and Hazelrig-Salter Radiation-Oncology Facility.

The growth of the physical campus and academic programs has been guided by UAB’s Strategic Plan. Developed with campus-wide participation in 2003, the Strategic Plan has led to the recruitment of internationally known faculty and physicians, and the creation of innovative new curricula and honors programs for undergraduates. In 2011, UAB saw its largest enrollment ever (17,575). UAB has also recently been ranked among the top 15 percent of all U.S. universities in The Princeton Review (5th in diverse student population and 11th in student satisfaction). Now in her 10th year as president, Dr. Garrison continues working in partnership with the campus and the community towards an extraordinary vision for UAB and for Birmingham.

With the opening of the Academic Center, an abundance of new computer equipment has been added. Mackin has also strengthened the academic area by creating additional staff positions. Under Mackin’s watch, the Academic Reform Group (ARG) was initiated. This group is made up of athletics staff members and academic support staff. With its mission to create an environment of academic excellence in the department, the group addresses every aspect of a student-athlete’s experience while at UAB. Mackin has also demonstrated his commitment to academic success by initiating a penalty structure for student-athletes and making them accountable if they miss classes or tutorial sessions. Mackin’s commitment to academics has shown

positive results. For the 2009-10 academic year, UAB student-athletes accounted for nearly 25 percent of Conference USA Scholar-Athletes of the Year, awards that are handed out annually to the top student-athlete in each sport that the league sponsors. Since Mackin became athletics director, he has made facility improvements another objective of emphasis. A new 10,000-square foot weight room has opened for Blazer teams, as well as a new, spacious, state-of theart athletic training facility which opened in the fall of 2008. With the renovation of the Ullman Building, the Blazers’ Olympic sports coaches have been able to relocate into brand new offices. Other facilities improvements have included the resurfacing of the track for the Blazers’ track and field team. In spring 2010, the first phase of the new, on-campus UAB softball facility was completed. The improvements haven’t gone unnoticed as UAB has been named as host site for the 2012 Conference USA Softball Championship. The baseball and softball programs also enjoy the hitting and pitching facility additions that were completed in spring 2010. New state-of-the-art video boards are now in place in Bartow Arena, Young Memorial Field and the new softball facility. The upgrades and progress of the program under Mackin have not been limited to facilities and academics. In the last three years, the athletics program entered an agreement with Nike that provides apparel and equipment for all of UAB’s athletics teams. Mackin came on board at UAB in the spring of 2002 as senior associate AD for external affairs. In that role, he was responsible for fund-raising, corporate sup-

port and marketing for the athletic department. In 2006, Mackin was named Division I-A Fundraiser of the Year by the National Association of Athletic Development Directors. Under Mackin’s leadership, contributions to UAB athletics nearly tripled from $1.3 million in 2001 to about $3.7 million in 2006. Additionally, he has been responsible for the creation of several affinity groups including the Athletic Investors Group, the Champion Club and the Blazer Club, which brought together the two annual funds supporting football and men’s basketball. Prior to joining UAB, Mackin served as Manager of Corporate Business Development at Vulcan Materials, where he was responsible for examining potential new markets for business development and locating growth opportunities in the industry. Mackin earned his bachelor’s degree in finance from UAB in 1983. He was a member of the Blazer baseball team four seasons and then moved into the Houston Astros baseball organization for one season. Mackin then joined Vulcan Materials, where he held management positions in sales and market analysis. In 1990, he joined Southern Ready Mix as sales manager before joining Dunn Construction in 1993 where he rose to vice president in 1999. His responsibilities included business development, sales and project management. Mackin’s community activities include the Birmingham Tip-Off Club, which hosts the State High School Final Four, the Monday Morning Quarterback Club and the Birmingham Rotary Club. He has served as the president of the Birmingham Tip-Off Club. Mackin and his wife, Sally, have five children: Ragland (23), Brian Jr. (21), Ferrell (18), Mary Aileen (17), and Ella (14).

ne of the most respected figures in intercollegiate athletics, Gene Bartow, forged the UAB athletic program into a well-rounded organization with outstanding teams in several sports. Bartow, considered the “founding father” of UAB athletics, grew the intercollegiate sports program there from its infancy into one that featured 17 sports and an annual operating budget of more than $8 million by the time he retired from the position in 2000. Bartow, who passed away Jan. 3, 2012 after a nearly three-year battle with cancer, guided the program through three conference changes, grew the football team from a club sport into a Division I-A program, and added several women’s sports to the university’s athletics roster. Bartow was at the helm of the UAB men’s basketball program for 18 seasons, compiling a record of 366-203 (.643) during his tenure. He led the Blazers to the NIT in the program’s second year of existence, and followed that up with seven straight NCAA Tournament appearances, including trips to the Sweet 16 in 1981 and the Elite Eight in 1982. In all, he led UAB to 14 postseason appearances, nine of which were NCAA Tournaments. In addition to his time at UAB, Bartow is one of the top college basketball coaches of all time. By the time he retired from collegiate coaching in 1996, he had led teams for 34 years at six universities (Central Missouri State, Valparaiso, Memphis State, Illinois, UCLA and UAB), compiling 647 wins, 15 NCAA Tournament appearances, two Final Four appearances, one national title game appearance and one national Coach of the Year Award (both with Memphis State in 1973), and no probation problems with the NCAA. In 2009, Bartow received the ultimate honor as he was inducted into the National College Basketball Hall of Fame. He entered the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame in 1989 and is also a member of both the Missouri Basketball Hall of Fame and the Northeast Missouri Athletic Hall of Fame. The Browning, Mo. native coached 34 years at six universities. He coached at Central Missouri State University from 1961-64, Valparaiso University from 1964-1970, Memphis State University from 1970-74, and he led the Tigers to the ‘73 NCAA national championship game and consecutive Missouri Valley Conference titles in the ‘71-’72 and ‘72-’73 seasons. In 1974 Bartow accepted the head coaching position at the University of Illinois. Illinois finished 8-18 in his only season coaching the Fighting Illini, and Bartow left his position to succeed John Wooden as the head coach of UCLA. Bartow coached at UCLA from 1975 to 1977, guiding them to a 52-9 record, including a berth in the 1976 Final Four. Bartow left UCLA after the 1977 season to take over the job of creating an athletic program at UAB. Bartow retired from coaching in 1996, and in 1997, UAB renamed its basketball venue, Bartow Arena, in his honor. The Birmingham News has voted him one of the top 10 most influential figures in Alabama sports for the past century. Bartow is survived by his wife, the former Ruth Huffine, and three children, Mark, Beth and Murry, who is the head men’s basketball coach at East Tennessee State. 6868

UAB AT A GLANCE U A B

S O F T B A L L

UAB is a young, dynamic university that has, over four decades, won international renown for its leading-edge research, medical care and academic programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Home to more than 17,500 students and 2,000 faculty members, UAB impacts every facet of the Birmingham community, improving the lives of residents through innovative health care, education, and active service and engagement. On a campus encompassing 86 city blocks, breakthroughs are made daily in the arts and sciences, business, dentistry, education, engineering, health professions, medicine, nursing, optometry and public health.

Bharat Soni, one of America’s top computing experts and a UAB engineering professor, has created a high-performance virtual reality lab on campus. In more than 80 interdisciplinary research centers all over campus, faculty and students are pushing the envelope in science and medicine, developing new treatments and cures for conditions ranging from cancer to Alzheimer’s to heart disease. UAB’s physicianresearchers, and the facilities in which they work, are recognized as among the best in the nation. UAB’s impact on its community and state is tremendous, and is seen not only in improved education and health care, but in a stronger economy. As Alabama’s largest single employer, UAB has some 18,000 employees and is responsible for more than 61,000 jobs statewide (that’s one of every 33 jobs), and has an annual economic impact of $4.6 billion. One of every 25 dollars in the state’s budget is generated by UAB.

A University Forging the Future • UAB has seen record overall enrollment for three consecutive years. In fall 2011, UAB welcomed 17,575 students and its largest freshman class ever (over 1,600), with two-thirds of those freshmen living on campus. • Forbes lists UAB among the top 20% of all U.S. undergraduate institutions and The Princeton Review has ranked the university in the top 10 nationally for student diversity for three consecutive years (currently 5th).

UAB enriches Birmingham’s cultural landscape through a diversity of people and activities such as athletics, performing arts, theatre, social service, and much more.

• An exciting nexus of the sciences, business and education, and the arts and humanities, UAB is forging the ideas and technologies of tomorrow with intensely collaborative research and scholarship. It’s where creativity and innovation are campus traditions—and where successful futures begin.

Care

• UAB Hospital is the largest in the state and among the largest and most complex in the nation (1,146 beds), and the only Alabama hospital listed for 22 straight years in the U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” issue, which lists only 3 percent of hospitals nationwide.

now boast of having one of the finest facilities around. The new center opened in January of 2008 and houses a 10,000 square-foot weight room that features more than 40,000 pounds of free weights. Strength and conditioning coach coach Lou DeNeen works with members of the Blazer men’s basketball team to develop training programs and enhance each athlete’s performance. DeNeen, who has more than 25 years of

experience in the area of strength and conditioning, joined the UAB staff prior to the 2007 campaign. In addition to his success at the collegiate level, DeNeen has also worked with and trained many professional athletes. His clientele includes MLB players Alex Rodriguez, Raul Ibanez, Mike Lowell, Jose Cruz, Jr. and Alex Gonzalez; NBA players Abdur-Rahim, Mark Strickland, Raja Bell, Jamal Mashburn, Carlos Arroyo, P.J. Brown and Joe Smith; and the NFL’s Tony Gonzalez, among many others. DeNeen and the Blazers moved into their

new strength and conditioning area in Bell Gymnasium, more than tripling the size of the area they had utilized previously in Bartow Arena. The bright and spacious weight room area includes state-of-the-art equipment for weight training, stretching and conditioning workouts. DeNeen uses a variety of techniques to assist the Blazers in achieving maximum performance and potential. With a heavy emphasis on Olympic style weightlifting, the program concentrates on speed, power, and strength.

The Magic City

The statue of Vulcan — Roman God of Fire and Iron — is the symbol of the city of Birmingham.

ith a population of more than 230,000 (more than one million in the metropolitan area), Birmingham has a strong, diverse, service-oriented economy and is recognized as a Southeast leader. Founded shortly after the Civil War, Birmingham rapidly became known as “The Magic City” because of its phenomenal

rate of industrial growth in its beginning. Its mountainous strata and forest surrounding the city are rich with ore deposits, and it was that natural wealth that quickly transformed young Birmingham into a bustling steel metropolis. Today, Birmingham continues to earn the distinction, “The Magic City,” but this tribute is due to the city’s economic competitiveness, technological advancements and quality of life — offerings which are sought after by professionals with an eye toward the future. Birmingham has been recognized as one of America’s “Most Livable Cities” by the U.S. Conference of Mayors — as recently as 1993. Birmingham’s strategic location and diverse economy position the city as one of tremendous opportunity and growth. Centrally located and the largest municipality in Alabama, the city is home to a number of renowned individuals who have made an impression on the nation and the world in music and entertainment, education, medicine and sports, to name a few. There is never a lack of cultural entertainment in “The Magic City”. Dozens of neighborhood and city-wide festivals, museums, parks, sports competitions and much more provide unlimited activity and amusement. Residents and visitors to Birmingham enjoy the city’s recreational and historical attractions such as the Birmingham Zoo, Birmingham Botanical Gardens,

Vulcan Park, Sloss Furnaces, Southern Museum of Flight and the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame. Sports enthusiasts will never be at a loss for activity at the heart of the “Football Capital of the South.” UAB plays all of its home football games at historic Legion Field, which also was the site of preliminary round soccer matches at the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. Professional athletic teams in the area include the Class-AA Birmingham Barons (baseball). Several annual fests are held in Birmingham. The biggest is City Stages, held each spring in the downtown City Center. City Stages attracts nearly a quarter of a million people for a three-day weekend of unlimited music. All of this and more makes Birmingham “The Magic City” to residents and visitors year-round.

The Birmingham Civil Rights Museum stands as a reminder of the past and a beacon of hope for the future.

T

he state-of-the-art, $25 million Campus Recreation Center has covered all the bases. It boasts 18,000 square feet of weight and fitness space outfitted with all-new equiptment and a one-eighth-mile oval running track that juts out of the building, curving toward University Boulevard and 15th Street South to provide panoramic views of the campus. And just to make sure no one gets bored, planners added a five-story, rock-climbing wall. The facility features four basketball courts, five racquetball courts, one of which converts to a squash court and a multi-purpose court that can be used for indoor soccer, volleyball, floor hockey or badminton. There are also four aerobic rooms and a swimming pool with four lap lanes and leisure and physical rehabilitation areas. The handicap-accessible pool has many special features. A continuous current in the “lazy river” carries swimmers around the outer edge of the pool in inner tubes – the ride ends under a waterfall – or individuals can walk against the flow as a part of a physical rehabilitation program. For more intense resistance training, center members can use the “vortex,” a circular area within the pool with forceful water jets.

One of the four aerobics rooms is dedicated to spinning; the others host Pilates, general aerobics, yoga, step, and kickboxing classes along with other specialty offerings. The facility also includes the Kids Zone, a supervised area – equipped with toys, books, and movies – where parents can drop off children while they work out. The center also has

a juice bar, wireless internet access, and an Outdoor Pursuits Center that rents camping gear and leads backpacking, rafting, and skiing trips to desitnations around the United States. The first floor houses a wellness center that coordinates with UAB groups to offer nutritional counseling, body-fat measurements, personal training, and general fitness assessments.
