Small town. Big school. UC Davis is ranked 16th among public universities nationwide by the National Research Council, is listed 11th among public universities nationwide by U.S. News & World Report; and is 10th in research funding among all U.S. ranked public universities by the National Science Foundation. The campus is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities, one of just 62 institutions of higher learning to be admitted to this distinguished group. Founded in 1908 as the University Farm amid the fertile fields of the state’s Central Valley, UC Davis embarks on a centennial celebration during the 2008-09 academic year. The campus encompasses the colleges of Letters and Science, Engineering, Biological Sciences, and Agricultural and Environmental Sciences; and professional schools in Law, Management, Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, and Education. It also operates the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, one of the leading teaching and research hospitals in the nation. In 2007, the campus announced a $100 million in founding support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to launch the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing. This is a period of growth and change for UC Davis. The campus has seen growth in student, faculty and staff populations and is in the midst of more than $1 billion in new construction. New facilities do or will include new laboratories, new classrooms and new student sports and recreation facilities. Thanks to the generosity of one of the world’s most renowned winemakers,

groundbreaking took place in 2005 on the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science.  The Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts opened in 2002 and is a showcase part of the campus. UC Davis has enjoyed a distinguished history in athletics as it continues a new era in NCAA Division I. The Aggies are official members in most sports in the Big West Conference which includes fellow UC campuses Irvine, Riverside and Santa Barbara. The transition to Division I brought to an end a successful Division II era in which UC Davis captured six Directors’ Cups in eight years, awarded annually to the most successful athletics program in the country. UC Davis also twice received recognition from Sports Illustrated for Women as the top Div. II school for women while Sports Illustrated has also previously honored the institution. In addition to 26 varsity sports (14 for women and 12 for men), the campus offers nearly 40 student-organized club sports. Women's field hockey will become the 27th varsity sport when it begins competition in 2009. And each year, more than 19,000 students participate in intramural sports. All students can enjoy abundant on- and off-campus recreational facilities for tennis, softball, basketball, volleyball and golf. Given the area’s Mediterranean climate, outdoor recreation continues year round. The program is also among the nation’s leaders in NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship recipients and has had three winners of the prestigious NCAA Woman of the Year Award, tied for the most among all schools in the country.

Coaching Staff

DREW WARTENBURG

KIM CONLEY

Head Coach 3rd Year Wesleyan University ‘92

Assistant Coach 2nd Year UC Davis ’09

Since taking over as head men’s and women’s cross country coach in the summer of 2008, Drew Wartenburg has achieved new heights with the Aggies and continues to lead both teams through Division I competition. Wartenburg also works with the distance runners as an assistant coach with the Aggie track and field teams. The 2009 season, Wartenburg’s second as head coach, saw Sarah Sumpter win UC Davis’ first Big West Conference individual championship in its Division I history as the women’s team finished in a programbest second place at the conference meet. Sumpter was named the conference’s Women’s Athlete of the Year, another first for the program. Her individual championship and the postseason honor marked just the second occasion that a freshman has taken both accolades in a season. The program success translated to the classroom as well as Scott Himmelberger and Kaitlin Gregg each earned CoSIDA/ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District VIII honors while Himmelberger would go on to earn Academic All-America accolades.  During his first season at the helm of the cross country program, the Aggies finished a program-best second at the Big West Conference Championships and women’s runners Kim Conley and Kaitlin Gregg became the first Aggies to qualify for the NCAA Division I Championships during the university’s D-I era. Conley and Gregg earned the first D-I all-region honors for the Aggies. In addition, Conley, Gregg and men’s runner K.C. Cody earned all-conference accolades. His first-year success carried over to the track as well. Conley and Lorin Scott each earned a spot into the regional meet in the 1,500 and 5,000 while Russell Pfaff qualified in the steeplechase after winning the Big West Conference individual title in the event. Wartenburg spent the 2007-08 season as an assistant coach for Oregon State’s women’s track and field and cross country teams. In only their third year since reinstating the programs for the 2004-05 season, the Beavers finished 13th at the NCAA West Regional during the cross country season and qualified their lone track and field athlete for the regional meet in the steeplechase - an event Wartenburg helped coach. Additionally, he mentored two Pac-10 Conference finalists in the 1,500 and the sixth-place finisher at the 2008 USATF Junior Nationals in that event. Prior to arriving at Oregon State, Wartenburg coached many successful teams and individuals at the prep level. He gained his first head coaching experience during a six-year stint as the head coach at Charles Wright Academy in Tacoma, Wash and led the cross country teams to a combined three league titles, three district titles and three Washington State titles at the 1A level. He served two years as the Dean of Students as well as a tenure as athletics director. Wartenburg graduated from Wesleyan University, a liberal arts college in Middlestown, Conn. in 1992, where he lettered in soccer.



Former UC Davis standout Kim Conley joins the cross country and track and field coaching staffs as an assistant coach after serving as a volunteer assistant for the 2009 season. In 2009, Conley lent her expertise as a distance runner to help the women’s side achieve new milestones. Under her shared guidance, Sarah Sumpter won UC Davis cross country’s first Big West Conference individual championship and Women’s Athlete of the Year award while seven Aggies runners participated at the NCAA West Regional. Prior to her selection to the Aggie staff, Conley completed a four-year cross country and track and field career at UC Davis that still stands amongst the best in Aggie history. In 2008, Conley and teammate Kaitlin Gregg made program history by becoming the first Aggies to qualify for the NCAA Division I Championship. She earned All-West Region with her 12th-place showing at the regional, earning her the berth at the national meet. During the fall seasons, Conley earned all-conference or equivalent honors three times. She was the Division I Independent champion as a freshman in 2004, then added her second All-Div. I Independent honor by placing seventh the following year. In 2008, Conley captured All-Big West Conference accolades with a seventh-place showing. Conley’s time of 16:17.51 set at the 2008 NCAA Track and Field West Regional in the 5,000 meters stands as a school record and her mark of 4:22.17 in the 1,500 meters currently ranks her No. 2 on UC Davis’ all-time ledger. Additionally she is ninth in the outdoor 800 (2:10.73) and the outdoor 3,000 (9:45.85) and owns the indoor 3,000 record with a time of 9:19.16. The Santa Rosa, Calif. native has continued her impressive running career as a member of the Asics Aggies Running Club. Her achievements with the club are highlighted by a 14th-place finish in the 10,000 meter event at the 2010 USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships and she posted career bests of 15:51.57 for the 5k and 33:22.28 in the 10k during the 2010 outdoor season. Conley also finished 18th overall at the 2010 USA Winter Cross Country Championships and was runner up at the 2009 USA Club Cross Country Championships. Prior to enrolling at UC Davis, Conley was a three-time CIF state cross country championship qualifier for Montgomery High School in Santa Rosa. She also finished second and third as a senior and junior, respectively, in the North Coast Section mile as a track athlete.

Coaching Staff

BYRON TALLEY

SAM AHLBECK

Interim Director, Track & Field/Cross Country 7th Year UC Davis ’02

Volunteer Assistant 1st Year Washington State ’10

An outdoor All-American who set two UC Davis hurdles records, Byron Talley returned to his collegiate alma mater to serve as Jon and Deanne Vochatzer’s top assistant in 2005. In the spring of 2010, after the Vochatzers announced their retirement from coaching, Talley took the helm as an interim director for the Aggie track & field and cross country programs. As an assistant, Talley worked primarily with the hurdlers. Under his watch, his hurdling corps has already achieved distinction at the NCAA Division I level. Two high hurdlers – Jazz Trice and Polly Gnepa – occupy the top two spots on the program’s all-time list while both qualifying for the 2009 NCAA Division I Championships in Fayetteville, Ark. Trice set a school-record time of 13.73 seconds while Gnepa ranks second at 13.99. A year later, Gnepa made a return trip to the NCAA meet while another hurdler, Alex Wilright, earned a berth to the USA Outdoor Championships. On the women’s side, standout Sirena Williams consistently lowered her school-record time in the 100 hurdles during 2009, culminating with an impressive time of 13.50 during the preliminaries of the West Regionals. A year later, she bettered her time to 13.43 at the Big West Championships, were she posted her second straight runner-up finish. In his two-year Aggie career, Talley set a school outdoor mark in the 110 hurdles and an indoor record in the 55 hurdles. As a senior in 2002, he captured the California Collegiate Athletic Association title, posting a 14.19 time in the prelimaries. Less than two weeks later, Talley placed eighth at the Div. II Championships, advancing to the finals with a UC Davis-record 14.02 in the prelims. That performance broke Daryl Hill’s previous mark of 14.04, set nearly two decades prior. Coincidentally, Hill and Talley remain as the program’s last two AllAmericans in the 110 hurdles. In 2001, Talley’s first year with the Aggies, he recorded a 7.67 in the 55-meter hurdles at Nevada’s annual Wolf Pack Invitational. Entering the 2005 season, that mark still stands as the program’s all-time best. Talley transferred to UC Davis in 2000 after an exemplary career at nearby Yuba College. He was the Northern California community college champion in the decathlon, setting a Yuba record with 6,535 points. Additionally, he won Scholar-Athlete honors for compiling his team’s highest grade-point average.

Sam Ahlbeck joins the men’s and women’s cross country programs for his first year as a volunteer assistant coach with UC Davis. He graduated from Washington State in 2010 where he competed in cross country and track and field all four years.   Ahlbeck emerged as a scoring runner for the WSU cross country team from the start, finishing 74th overall and seventh on the team at the Pac10 Conference Championships in his freshman season.   After redshirting the 2006 season, Ahlbeck returned in 2007 to finish 49th at the Pac-10 Championships and competed at the NCAA West Regional where he was the team’s fifth-highest scorer. In his junior campaign, Ahlbeck showed even more improvement with a 37th-place finish at the conference meet. As a senior, Ahlbeck served as team captain for the cross country team and finished 26th overall at the 2009 Pac-10 Championships as WSU’s second-highest finisher.   Ahlbeck was a standout track and field athlete for Washington State as well, mainly competing in the 3000m steeplechase. He advanced to the 2009 NCAA Track & Field Championships for the first time in his Cougar career, clocking in at 8:49.88 to finish 17th overall.   He placed in the top-10 at the Pac-10 Championships in the 3000m steeplechase three straight years and was a top-20 finisher in the event at the NCAA West Regional meet three consecutive years.   Prior to his arrival at Washington State, Ahlbeck earned three varsity letters at Lindbergh High School in both cross country and track and field and was the state cross country champion as a senior. Ahlbeck graduated with a degree in general humanities. He is originally from Renton, Wash.

Aggie Coaching History Although “Doc” Seawright fielded the first UC Davis cross country team back in 1920, the program did not become a “permanent” sport on campus until 1957, when the Far Western Conference voted cross country as a second fall sport. The women’s program started as an Women’s Athletic Association offering as early as 1971. However, longtime coach Sue Williams is credited with establishing the women’s team from its roots as a “running club” later in that decade.

Aggie Profiles

A New Home In 2008, UC Davis cross country moved to a new home course. The site, located on the southwest corner of the campus boundaries near the Putah Creek Cold Water Facility off County Road 98, will host two meets in its first season. The Aggies previously held home meets at an on-campus course that meandered through the university’s Arboretum/Shields Grove area. The program later moved the Aggie Open to the nearby Wildhorse Golf Course in 2005 and 2006. The coaching staff hopes the new location can serve as a host site for years to come.

UC DAVIS ATHLETICS GREG WARZECKA

Director of Athletics

On August 1, 1995, Greg Warzecka became the 11th director of athletics at UC Davis. In the decade-plus since, the Aggie athletics program has enjoyed unprecedented success under his guidance. Warzecka’s penchant for progress began from his first year as director when he was charged with the task of fully engaging the campus in dicussions regarding whether or not UC Davis would offer athletics-related financial aid. One year later, the campus announced the launch of its first-ever grant-in-aid program. Warzecka has also overseen UC Davis’ transition into two conferences in his short tenure. In 1998, the Aggies moved from the now-defunct Northern California Athletic Conference to the powerful California Collegiate Athletic Association. Then in 2003, the UC Davis program announced that it would join the Big West Conference and thus reclassify from NCAA Division II to Division I status. Under Warzecka’s guidance, the Aggie athletics program increased its grant-inaid allocation nearly tenfold to approximately $5 million. During this period, he also engineered a substantial upgrade in athletics facilities, most notably the Schaal Aquatics Center (2004), the Marya Welch Tennis Center (2005) and the multi-use Aggie Stadium (2007).

Small town. Big school. UC Davis is ranked 16th among public universities nationwide by the National Research Council, is listed 11th among public universities nationwide by U.S. News & World Report; and is 10th in research funding among all U.S. ranked public universities by the National Science Foundation. The campus is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities, one of just 62 institutions of higher learning to be admitted to this distinguished group. Founded in 1908 as the University Farm amid the fertile fields of the state’s Central Valley, UC Davis embarks on a centennial celebration during the 2008-09 academic year. The campus encompasses the colleges of Letters and Science, Engineering, Biological Sciences, and Agricultural and Environmental Sciences; and professional schools in Law, Management, Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, and Education. It also operates the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, one of the leading teaching and research hospitals in the nation. In 2007, the campus announced a $100 million in founding support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to launch the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing. This is a period of growth and change for UC Davis. The campus has seen growth in student, faculty and staff populations and is in the midst of more than $1 billion in new construction. New facilities do or will include new laboratories, new classrooms and new student sports and recreation facilities. Thanks to the generosity of one of the world’s most renowned winemakers,

groundbreaking took place in 2005 on the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science.  The Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts opened in 2002 and is a showcase part of the campus. UC Davis has enjoyed a distinguished history in athletics as it continues a new era in NCAA Division I. The Aggies are official members in most sports in the Big West Conference which includes fellow UC campuses Irvine, Riverside and Santa Barbara. The transition to Division I brought to an end a successful Division II era in which UC Davis captured six Directors’ Cups in eight years, awarded annually to the most successful athletics program in the country. UC Davis also twice received recognition from Sports Illustrated for Women as the top Div. II school for women while Sports Illustrated has also previously honored the institution. In addition to 26 varsity sports (14 for women and 12 for men), the campus offers nearly 40 student-organized club sports. Women's field hockey will become the 27th varsity sport when it begins competition in 2009. And each year, more than 19,000 students participate in intramural sports. All students can enjoy abundant on- and off-campus recreational facilities for tennis, softball, basketball, volleyball and golf. Given the area’s Mediterranean climate, outdoor recreation continues year round. The program is also among the nation’s leaders in NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship recipients and has had three winners of the prestigious NCAA Woman of the Year Award, tied for the most among all schools in the country.
