PREVIEWING THE 2009 SEASON WITH HEAD COACH TODD DAGENAIS

2009 UCF volleyball squad Le to right: Nichole Riedel, Meredith Murphy, Jennifer Belew, Brianie Wallace, Kae Riley, Sara Rex, Lauren Williams, Andee Youngblood, Erin Campbell, Renele Forde, Kristen Petrasic, Krisn Fisher, Tory McCutcheon, Dani Harrison and Angelica Crump

In your first year with the program last season, the team finished with a 15-17 record, its best finish since 2003, and recorded its most Conference USA wins in school history. What are your expectaons for your second year with the Knights with eight newcomers on your roster? “Our goal this year is to do everything that we can to become a top-75 program, and that is going to be a big challenge. We lost a big percentage of our offense when we lost (Stephanie) Serna, (Jenny) Heppert and Janine (Williams) to graduaon. But, the good news is that I think, athlecally, we are superior to what we were last year, but experience-wise we are not even close. So, it depends on how quickly the experiencefactor starts to take hold with the younger players. If we can get them experienced and get them gameready then we are going to have a lot of opons to be able to score points. But, I am also realisc. Somemes those things can take two or three months before they actually kick in, so it is really just going to be based on the learning curve of everybody to be able to make up those points. If we can make up those points then we are going to be able to start reaching our expectaons.” You arranged for the team to play a prey tough schedule this season, which includes 16 matches at The Venue at UCF. How is this schedule going to challenge the team and prepare it to reach the expectaons you set for it this season? “The nice thing about this year is that we have so many more matches at home. Opening at home is going to be a big deal with all the younger players. Then we have some big things on the horizon.

18

“I think that the non-conference schedule is going to be challenging for us. We are going to see a wide variety of teams and a wide variety of styles and I think that is going to be really good for us to face that kind of diversity, because once we get into our league schedule, it is going to be a war.

“I really think that Conference USA is going to be tough this year. I just think there are going to be so many teams that are going to be so much beer. All I know is that all we can do is prepare week-by-week for whatever we have in front of us, because if you look at the totality of it, it can get prey ominous. But, the schedule itself is going to provide us with a big test this year. Looking at it as a whole it allows us to grow a lile bit and it allows us to give some people some experience on the floor. But, on the flipside it really is going to test us and we are going to find out how good we are. If we are lucky enough to get through this conference and we can get a winning record, we are certainly going to be in the top-100 and on our way to being a top-75 program.” Two of your three seers from last year are back to run the offense. How do you think each is going to contribute to the success of your offense? “The one seer that we have that has stayed consistent is Andee Youngblood. Andee played a lot of me for us last year, especially in a 6-2 offense. Now, we will probably look more for her to run a 5-1 offense. Athlecally, she can play in the front row, she can block and she is not a liability in any way. She has worked so hard on her locaon and her selecon in the offseason and right now she is doing a really nice job of running the offense. I know for sure she is going to factor into the seng, because being a senior now she has that leadership behind her and she is really raring to go. She has really prepared for this year. “Renele Forde spent the enre summer seng for the Trinidad and Tobago Naonal Team, so she has played against the elite teams in the world as a seer, and you cannot discount that type of experience. If she comes along the way that we think she can, it would make a lot of sense to run both her and Andee on the floor.

“We also had Jennifer Belew join us this fall. She is very eager to learn, works really hard, has this really great compeveness about her and the team loves her. She comes from a great family of hard-workers and I would expect nothing but the best out of her.” Despite the return of Erin Campbell at the outside hing posion, the team lost a big chunk of its offense to graduaon. Who do you think will step up and compensate for those missing points?

Erin Campbell “I think that the outside posion is one of the posions that are wide open right now. Erin Campbell obviously comes back as our returning kills leader, point scorer and has all of the experience. So, I think that on paper it makes sense that she should probably be in that outside hing posion. But, we brought in a couple new people this year, including Brianie Wallace. She transfers in from Sam Houston State and has two years of collegiate experience. She is a nice allaround player and comes from a very high-level club program.

VOLLEYBALL

PREVIEWING THE 2009 SEASON WITH HEAD COACH TODD DAGENAIS “The wildcard is Angelica Crump. She doesn’t have a ton of high-level experience, but she has been trained prey well. One thing that we are nocing already is that she is learning very quickly. Another factor is that she has been jump-tested at 10-4, which is elite. That could very well be the highest jump-touch of anyone in the conference. So, you cannot ignore that kind of athlec ability. “It is going to be interesng to see how our offense evolves. Are we going to go with the experience, are we going to go with the athlecism? I don’t know how we are going to do it, but I know that both Brianie and Erin are athlec enough to score in this conference and they have the experience, but you cannot discount the athlec ability that an Angelica Crump brings. “We also have Krisn Fisher. She has been another one of those solid players all the way through. As Krisn connues to develop in the back court you cannot discount the possibility that she can start a match at any given me and we would be just fine.”

“Another wildcard that we brought in on the right side is Evija Vilde. Her father was a very high level internaonal player for the former Soviet Union, so we are hoping that the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree. She is a very accomplished, well-rounded player and she is already showing lile glimpses of what she can really do. I think that it is going to be really difficult to not have her on the floor.” Lauren Williams returns at the middle posion aer ranking second on the team in blocks per game and total blocks. Now that she is a junior what do you expect from her? Who else do you see making an impact in the middle-blocker posion? “This year, that is the posion that I am most excited about. We return Lauren Williams, who hit almost .300 last year. She has been working hard on her blocking, so she could become one of the conference’s elite blockers.

Lauren Williams How do you replace AVCA All-Midwest Region Honorable Menon selecon Stephanie Serna on the right side? “Right now it looks like Renele has put herself in the leader’s posion to start on the right side. Her aacking has really come along in the last six months and her blocking is superior. She is one of the best blockers in the conference. “Also, I was really excited about seeing Kae Riley after one year from the first me she walked in and she is so much more technical and so much stronger then what she was before. We are sll working on geng the velocity of her aacks up with her, but blockingwise she is solid.

“Sara Rex comes back in great shape. Of all the players, she took to the training beer than anybody else in the enre program. She is so fluid and so solid technically right now that it is going to be really hard to ignore her in that posion. “I am also really excited about the freshmen in this posion. Nichole Riedel played with two elite clubs in Colorado and played an elite naonal schedule, and it has rubbed off on her. Right now, we could put her in a college match and she would be fine. I don’t know how many points she would score, but she would block. She wouldn’t make mistakes in the front row and she would read the right things and the right cues. She could come in and play right now. “Tory McCutcheon is a longer body than Nichole and she was one of the top middle blockers up in Canada. In pracces, she has shown glimpses of brilliance.”

You have a couple of new faces at the libero posion this season. Who do you see taking over that posion? “I thought that one of the things that we sorely lacked last year was consistent ball control. This year, it is a complete 180. We have terrific ball control. Kristen Petrasic returns having two years under her belt, and she has vastly improved over last year. We have Meredith Murphy coming in from Ausn. She has played with the best recruits in the country and that is a high level of experience. I think that she is also game-ready right now. She hasn’t quite seen the speed of the collegiate game, but I feel that she could probably adapt prey fast. “Lastly, I am very pleasantly surprised with how efficient Dani Harrison is right now. She is just gutsy. She is just a gutsy gamer, hard-worker and smart player. She also transfers instrucon quickly into the game. “One of them is going to be the libero and the other two are going to be defensive specialists. Either way we have three quality back-row players, and that is a luxury that most teams do not have.” Who do you think is going to stand out this season in a team full of newcomers? “I think this year is really going to be a year of team. I do not think that we are going to have any stars this year and I am okay with that. I am okay with having seven people on the floor and not one of them being a star, everybody just does their job. I told them that I want each of them to do their job to the best of their ability. We are not going to get by with having a star; we are not going to get by with seng someone 50 mes a set. It is just not going to work with this group. I think that if we get people to funcon within their role and get everybody to really be in it for the team, I think that we can be way beer than what our experience level says we should be. Our experience says that we shouldn’t be as good as we were last year, and I am not sure that I am going to buy into that. I feel like we can be as good as we were last year, maybe even a lile bit beer. But, the caveat is that we have a lot of work to do to get to that point.”

Serna would then go on to earn AVCA All-Midwest Regional Honorable Menon honors. Lauren Rosenthal added to the firsts when she became the first UCF volleyball player to be named a C-USA Player of the Week, earning Seer of the Week honors on two occasions. Dagenais also managed to bring in one of the most dominant volleyball teams in NCAA history when Stanford helped the Knights open the newly completed Venue at UCF on Sept. 2. A record 1,568 fans came to the opening match in which Dagenias and the Knights also honored the 1978 UCF volleyball squad that claimed the AIAW Naonal Championship. In the offseason, Dagenais served as a member of the staff at the U.S. Women’s Naonal Team Open Tryout at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. Dagenais was a court coach and evaluator at the event, pung the players through physical tesng, drills and match play.

Before assuming the post at UCF, Dagenais spent three seasons as the assistant head coach at the University of Southern California where he helped guide the Women of Troy to a 29-5 record in 2007 and a trip to the 2007

“Chuck taught me that the discipline of the game is paramount to a student-athlete over-achieving on and off the court,” Dagenais said. “Toshi taught me to see the game at the Internaonal Level, and showed me how a small maer of a few degrees of excellence means the difference of being in posion to be successful or not. Mick is probably the most amazing people manager I have ever worked with. He is such a creave volleyball thinker, always finding a way to maximize individual members of a team toward a collecve goal. I learned so much from his ability to manage a match in the most crical situaons.”

TEAM HIGHS

Leaps and Bounds The UCF volleyball team was ranked 113 in the final NCAA Women’s Volleyball RPI. The Knights finished the 2007 season at 244 on the chart, an improvement of 131 spots. During the season, the Black and Gold ranked as high as 76 in the RPI on Oct. 13, a jump of 168 places, the largest for any Division I team last season. Career Marks Jenny Heppert made her mark on the UCF record books in 2008, climbing the chart in numerous career categories. The senior finished her career ranking No. 3 all-me in block assists (319) and total blocks (375), while sing in the fih spot for block solos (56). Heppert also ranks seventh on the career register in service aces per set (0.35) and eighth in service aces (139) and sets played (402). Erin Campbell and Stephanie Serna also saw their names climb the ranks of the UCF career register, with Campbell ranking fourth in digs per set (2.67), fih in aempts per set (8.30), seventh in aempts (2,640) and 10th in digs

(849). Serna weighs in at No. 9 in kills (896) and No. 10 in aempts (2,100). Spectator Sport The Knights’ energy and success were contagious last season, as they averaged 482 fans in their first season playing in The Venue at UCF in 2008, an 86 percent increase from their 259 fans per match in 2007. Overall, the Black and Gold entertained a total of 4,819 UCF loyal, which was a 46 percent jump from the 2007 season when a total of 3,365 fans came out to watch the squad in three fewer matches. Playing for First Place On Oct. 12, the Knights did something that no UCF volleyball team before them had ever done. They were playing for first place in the C-USA the standings. Both UCF and UAB entered the mid-October contest at The Venue at UCF with a 4-1 league record, with the winner taking home top-C-USA honors that week. Despite falling in the contest to the Blazers, the Black and Gold got its first taste of what it takes to be an elite team in the conference.

Between the second and third sets of the match, Dagenais took the microphone and praised former head coach Lucy McDaniel and her squad for giving the Knights what they have today, before dropping the new championship banner which will forever hang with pride at The Venue at UCF. When asked to say a few words about the team of young women that she mentored to the top of the naon, McDaniel only needed to say one thing. “If someone couldn’t have won the naonal championship with the team I had,” McDaniel said, “then they didn’t know a darn thing about coaching.” The ceremony honoring the 1978 squad was emoonal not only for members of that team, but for the current Knights playing because of them. “I was so excited to see the women who started this, who made it possible for me to be here and who set the foundaon for all the success that we’re having,” senior Stephanie Serna said. “If it wasn’t for the 1978 team winning the naonal championship, who knows where the team would be now? I was so thankful to be able to be in their presence and to be able to tell them thank you.”

KEITH R. TRIBBLE • DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS The thread that has bridged together nearly three decades working in and around the collegiate community has been Keith Tribble’s history of building programs with strong foundaons and dynamic structure. Since his start as Director of Athlecs and Execuve Vice President for the University of Central Florida Athlecs Associaon on June 6, 2006, Tribble has quickly taken hold of the program’s blueprints and promised to lead with a principle that everyone associated with the program will also share - to “finish.”

Keith Tribble is commied to the concept of the well-rounded studentathlete, emphasizing the importance of their academic prowess off the field as well as championship results on.

COMMITTED TO EXCELLENCE

In addion, the other focal point of his concentraon is the oversight of the construcon, expansion and compleon of the noted UCF Athlecs Facilies Master Plan. When finished, the plan will touch all areas of the student-athletes’ well-being, including residenal housing, academic and mentoring support facilies and state-of-the-art performance venues where UCF fans and supporters can cheer on the Knights. To date, Tribble has overseen $150 million in new construcon and improvements to UCF athlec facilies since his arrival. Through a renewed commitment, Tribble has been most proud of the record academic achievement of the UCF student-athletes during his first two years in Orlando. The Knights, for the third-straight year in 2008-09, placed the highest number of student-athletes on the Conference USA Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll with 224 representaves maintaining a 3.0 grade-point average or beer. Much of UCF Athlecs went from transioning into Conference USA to compeng for its tles in just a few short years. The football program has played for two CUSA tles since 2005, winning the championship and coveted AutoZone Liberty Bowl berth in 2007. In 200708, other programs such as women’s soccer and soball, and members of women’s track and field, claimed C-USA tles. In 2008-09, men’s golf reigned over the league, in addion to a big Conference USA Tournament championship from women’s basketball. Over half of the programs have competed in NCAA postseason tournaments the past two years.

Successful student-athletes start with top-notch coaching and at UCF the commitment to coaching excellence has been evident. Among Tribble’s transacons so far has been the renewal of several successful veteran coaches, including Amanda Cromwell (women’s soccer), Renee Luers-Gillispie (soball), George O’Leary (football) and Kirk Speraw (men’s basketball). Addionally, Tribble was instrumental in the hiring of several new head coaches, including Bryan Cunningham (men’s soccer), Todd Dagenais (women’s volleyball), Becky Cramer (women’s rowing), Stephanie Nickitas (women’s tennis), Terry Rooney (baseball), Caryl Smith-Gilbert (women’s track and field/cross country) and Joi Williams (women’s basketball).
