School Nickname

“Bronchos” was the nickname selected for Central Oklahoma in 1922 by Mrs. C.W. Wantland, wife of long-time UCO football coach C.W. Wantland. The name was chosen from a number of suggestions for the name of UCO’s football team and became the nickname for all athletic teams at the school. Mrs. Wantland was made an honorary member of the Letterman’s Club as a result of selecting the nickname, becoming the first woman admitted to that organization.

Tom Thompson Field Central Oklahoma plays its home games at Tom Thompson Field, located just east of Hamilton Field House on campus. The field is named for UCO graduate Tom Thompson, who donated funds to help start the soccer program in 1998, and now ranks as one of the finest soccer facilities in NCAA Division II after undergoing a massive renovation three years ago. UCO has enjoyed great success on its home field, entering the 2013 season with a glittering 112-24-6 (81.0 winning percentage) record in the facility. The Bronchos played their first home game on Sept. 13, 1998, beating St. Gregory’s 3-0. UCO has also played 15 home games away from Tom Thompson Field, having gone 12-2 at Wantland Stadium and 0-1 at the Edmond Soccer Club Field. The Bronchos drew what was then an NCAA Division II-record 2,139 fans to Wantland Stadium in 2008 in a game against Dallas Baptist and went 8-2 while playing all 10 home games there in 2010.

Coaches/Outlook

2013 UCO Soccer Head Coach Mike Cook Mike Cook has been with the Central Oklahoma soccer program since its inception and has built the Bronchos into a perennial NCAA Division II power. Cook came to UCO when the school started the program in 1998 and has guided the Bronchos to an amazing 230-75-19 record over the past 15 years. He has a 20-year women’s record of 318-97-20, ranking among the Division II coaching leaders in all-time wins and winning percentage (.754). Mike has led UCO six regular-season conference titles, five league tournament crowns and nine national playoff appearances. He earned Lone Star Conference Coach of the Year accolades six times and has been named Midwest Regional Coach of the Year twice. Cook has coached 80 all-conference players, 47 All-Region players and six All-Americans during his successful tenure. UCO was 11-9 in its first year of varsity competition in 1998, then went 13-5-1 in 1999 while breaking into the Division II top 20 rankings during the season. The Bronchos had a breakthrough season in 2000, finishing 20-3 in winning both the regular season and league tournament titles. UCO made its first national playoff appearance, beating Mesa State before falling to eventual champion UC San Diego in the quarterfinals. UCO followed that with a 15-6 campaign in 2001, then won the LSC Tournament in 2002 before falling to Metropolitan State in the national tournament to finish 20-3. The Bronchos made a repeat national tournament appearance in 2003 in going 15-5-2, then went 13-6-2 and won the LSC title in 2004. Cook led the Bronchos to a 16-3-2 record and a second consecutive league crown in 2005, with UCO losing a shootout in the playoffs. The Bronchos captured a third straight league championship in 2006 before falling in a shootout in the national tournament to finish 18-3-1. UCO claimed a fourth consecutive LSC regular-season title and made its longest Division II playoff run in 2007, winning two games and advancing to the Sweet 16 during a 19-5-1 campaign. The Bronchos had their four-year string of LSC titles ended in 2008 and ended up finishing 13-6-3, but bounced back the next year to go 14-6-3 in winning the LSC Tournament title and making it back to the national tournament. UCO went 11-8-1 in 2010 and started 0-3 in 2011 before winning a school-record 15 games in a row to qualify for the national playoffs despite playing an independent schedule. The Bronchos earned a first-round bye before losing to Dallas Baptist 1-0 in the second round. Central joined the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association last year and Cook led the Bronchos to a runner-up finish and a second straight national tournament appearance. UCO won its first-round game before falling 1-0 in the second round in finishing the season 16-3-3. Mike came to UCO after a highly-successful tenure at Southern Nazarene. He was an assistant coach for the SNU men’s team from 1987-92 before serving as head coach for both the men’s and women’s teams from 1993-97, going 88-22-1 with the women and 58-44-2 with the men. He directed the women’s team to a pair of third-place NAIA national finishes and was a threetime District 9 and NAIA Southwest Regional Coach of the Year selection. Cook also enjoyed great success as a player. He was a two-time All-District 9 and AllSouthwest Region performer at SNU and played nine years of professional soccer, getting inducted into the United Soccer Leagues Hall of Fame in 2006. Mike, a native of Toronto, Canada, received both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from SNU. Cook is married (Sandy) and has two children (Cody and Taylor).

2013 UCO Soccer The MIAA Central Oklahoma is in its second year as a member of the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association. The MIAA, a 14-member conference of NCAA Division II institutions in Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma, was first organized in 1912 as the Missouri Intercollegiate Athletic Association. Over the past 100 years, the MIAA has gained the reputation of being one of the top NCAA Division II conferences in the nation. MIAA schools have won 15 NCAA team championships and, since 1964, over 160 individual national titles. The MIAA currently conducts championships in eight sports for men and nine for women. For the men, champions are crowned in football, cross country, basketball, indoor and outdoor track & field, baseball, tennis and golf. The women compete for titles in volleyball, cross country, soccer, basketball, indoor and outdoor track & field, softball, golf and tennis. The MIAA turned a new page on July 1, 1992, when the NCAA Division II conference changed its name from the Missouri Intercollegiate Athletic Association to the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association. The decision to make the change originated in 1989, when Pittsburg State and Washburn became the first schools outside the state of Missouri to gain membership in the MIAA. The conference was first organized in 1912 with 14 member institutions. Of those original members, Central Missouri and Northwest Missouri State still remain a part of the MIAA. The first change in membership came in 1924, when the MIAA reorganized to include only the five regional Missouri state colleges: Central Mis-

souri, Truman (at the time known as Northeast Missouri State), Northwest Missouri, Southeast Missouri State and Southwest Missouri State (now Missouri State). Over the next 56 years, three schools joined the membership: Missouri School of Mines (later Missouri-Rolla) in 1935, Lincoln in 1970 and the Missouri-St. Louis in 1980. Ken Jones became the first full-time commissioner of the MIAA in 1981 and would be in the position for 16 years, retiring in 1997. Ralph McFillen succeeded Jones, serving 10 years before his retirement in 2007. Jim Johnson succeeded McFillen in July of that year and served as commissioner until September of 2010, when Dr. Bob Boerigter took over. Southwest Baptist brought membership back to eight schools in 1986, before the major expansion of the conference in 1989. Pittsburg State, Washburn, Missouri Southern and Missouri Western began competition in the 1989-90 season. Southeast Missouri left the MIAA following the 1990-91 season and was replaced by Emporia State in the 1991-92 season. Missouri-St. Louis departed the MIAA in 1996, Missouri-Rolla left in 2005 and Lincoln forfeited its membership in 1999. Fort Hays State joined the MIAA in 2006, NebraskaOmaha entered the league in 2008 and Lincoln re-joined the conference in 2010. On July 29, 2010, the MIAA CEO Council voted to extend invitations to UCO and Northeastern State to become members of the league and on Sept. 24, 2010 it voted to extend invitations to NebraskaKearney and Lindenwood. Nebraska-Omaha left the league in 2011 and Truman State did the same last year, which left 14 schools in the MIAA.
