Softball History

First Season of Softball: 1975 All-time Record: 865-567-3 Conference Championships: Two (1998, ‘05) National Tournament Appearances: Nine -- two in AIAW (1980, ‘82); one in NAIA (1988); and six in NCAA Division II (2002, ‘05, ‘06, ‘08, ‘10, ‘12). NCAA II Regional Championships: Two (2006, ‘12)

“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.

School Colors

Bronze and blue were chosen as Central Oklahoma’s school colors in 1895 by school president Edmund Dandridge Murdaugh. The first public display of the bronze and blue was in Guthrie when a student represented UCO in the first oratorical contest ever held in Oklahoma.

the finals. The Bronchos ended up 46-9 while setting or tying 17 team and individual single-season records and were No. 2 in the final ranking. Stidham is a local product of Edmond Memorial High School, earning All-State honors for the Bulldogs in 1986 before signing with Kansas. Genny left KU after one semester and sat out the next four years before returning to school at UCO in the fall of 1990. She enjoyed a astellar two-year career with the Bronchos, going 14-5 with 10 shutouts and a 0.73 earned run average in 1991 and 11-5 with a 1.21 ERA as a senior in 1992. Stidham also hit .425 that year with 14 doubles to earn first-team All-Midwest Region honors and second-team All-America recognition as a utility player. Stidham ranks second on UCO’s career winning percentage list at .714 with a 25-10 record. She had 278 strikeouts and gave up only 32 earned runs in 231 innings pitched, finishing with a career 0.97 ERA. Genny went into private business for a year after leaving UCO, then earned her bachelor’s degree from East Central in 1994. Stidham spent the 1995 season as an assistant coach at Oklahoma before returning to UCO as the graduate assistant in 1996 and ‘97. The Bronchos were 44-30 in those two years and Stidham received her master’s from UCO in 1997 before taking over the helm the following season. Genny is married (Jerod) and has two children (Allie and Connor).

Now in her 16th year at the controls of the Central Oklahoma program is former All-American Genny Stidham, who has turned the Bronchos into an annual NCAA Division II national contender. Stidham reached the 400-win plateau and became the winningest softball coach in school history during a record-setting 2012 campaign and is now 424-278-2 at the helm. She’s led the Bronchos to two Lone Star Conference championships and six national tournament berths, including trips to the NCAA Division II World Series

in 2006 and ‘12. Genny, a star pitcher-shortstop for the Bronchos in the early-1990s who was inducted into the UCO Athletic Hall of Fame in 2009, has led the Bronchos to the five winningest seasons in school history (46 in 2012, 41 in ‘05, 36 in ‘08, 35 in ‘02 and 32 in ‘10). She’s coached 75 all-conference players during her tenure along with three All-Americans. Stidham took over the UCO reigns in 1998 and guided the Bronchos to their first LSC championship that season. UCO hosted the LSC Tournament as the No. 1 seed from the North Division and defeated Tarleton State 5-4 in the finals to claim the crown and cap a 24-15 season. The Bronchos finished 23-23 in 1999, struggled to a 14-22-1 campaign in 2000 and were 24-22 in 2001 before breaking through in 2002. UCO finished 35-16 and made its first-ever appearance in the NCAA Division II national tournament in 2002. The Bronchos were LSC North Division runners-up and finished second in the LSC Tournament to earn a trip to the South Central Regional, knocking off No. 12 Mesa State in the first round before being eliminated with two close losses. A slow start and some key injuries plagued UCO during a 17-29-1 finish in 2003 and the Bronchos went 21-20 in 2004. UCO enjoyed one of its best-ever seasons in 2005 in finishing 41-14 while capturing both the LSC North Division and LSC Tournament titles. The Bronchos advanced to the South Central Regional in San Antonio, Texas, going 2-2 and finishing 12th in the final poll. Stidham and UCO went back to the national tournament in 2006, overcoming a tough finish with a stirring post-season run. The Bronchos placed third in the LSC North Division and went 2-2 in the LSC Tournament, barely making it to the South Central Regional as the No. 7 seed. UCO cruised to three easy wins in the eight-team regional to make the finals, then trimmed Incarnate Word 5-4 in a thrilling finals contest to claim its first-ever regional crown and advance to the Division II World Series. The Bronchos fell to Cal State-Bakersfield in the first round at Salem, Va., then knocked off Southern Illinois-Edwardsville before being ousted by eventual runner-up Emporia State to finish 31-17. Central went 29-16 and just missed out on a third straight national tournament berth in 2007 before going 36-16 and making it back to the national playoffs in 2008. The Bronchos were North Division runners-up in 2009 in finishing 2615, bounced back with a 32-21 campaign in 2010 to earn another national tournament berth and went 25-23 in 2011 for their eighth consecutive winning season. Stidham led UCO to its best-ever season in 2012, winning a schoolrecord 46 games en route to making a run at the national championship. The Bronchos reeled off 35 straight wins during the season -- 20 games longer than the previous school record -- and won the South Central Regional crown in qualfying for its second World Series appearance. UCO won its first two games in Louisville, Ky. to make the semifinals before losing two straight to UC San Diego in falling one game short of

NCAA Division II National Tournament History Central Oklahoma has qualified for the NCAA Division II national tournament six times since joining the organization in 1989-90. All six appearances have come since 2002 and the Bronchos have an all-time record of 16-14 in national tournament games. UCO captured regional championships in 2006 and 2012 to qualify for the Division II World Series. A year-by-year look at UCO in the national tournament:

2002

UCO qualified for its first-ever Division II national tournament in 2002, going to San Antonio, Texas for the South Central Regional. The Bronchos beat Colorado Mesa 3-2 in the first round before being eliminated with back-to-back losses to Texas A&M-Kingsville (1-0 and 4-0).

2005

UCO’s second Division II playoff appearance resulted in another trip to San Antonio, Texas for the South Central Regional, with the Bronchos going 2-2. Central fell to Angelo State 6-4 in the first round, then rebounded to shut out Midwestern State (3-0) and Abilene Christian (4-0) before being ousted by ASU (5-2).

2008

The Bronchos were back in the playoffs after a one-year hiatus, traveling to San Angelo, Texas for the 2008 South Central Regional. UCO fell to Southeastern Oklahoma 2-0 in the first round, stayed alive with a 7-4 win over St. Mary’s and was eliminated by St. Edward’s 3-0.

2010

UCO made its shortest Division II national tournament appearance in 2010 in Emporia State, losing two to Angelo State (4-0) and Texas Woman’s (7-2) in its first two games.

2012

UCO capped its best-ever season with a second trip to the World Series. The Bronchos hosted the South Central Regional I Tournament, beating Incarnate Word (3-1) and Emporia State (2-1) before the Hornets forced an “if necessary” game with a 2-0 win. UCO scored three seventh-inning runs to top ESU 8-6 in the finals and advance to San Angelo, Texas for the Super Regional. The Bronchos trimmed Angelo State 1-0 in the opener of that best-of-three series, but the Rambelles squared it with a 12-3 rout. UCO rebounded with an 11-3 rout to capture the regional title. Central beat Flagler (4-2) and Southern Connecticut (6-4) in the first two rounds of the World Series in Louisville, Ky. before falling to UC San Diego twice (4-3 and 2-0) to tie for third in finishing 46-9.

2006

UCO had an amazing post-season run in 2006 when it made it back to the national tournament for the second straight year. The Bronchos entered the South Central Regional in Wichita Falls, Texas as the No. 7 seed and rolled over Abilene Christian (6-0), St. Edward’s (8-0) and Incarnate Word (7-0) to make the finals before clipping UIW 5-4 in extra innings to advance to the World Series in Salem, Va.. UCO lost to Cal State-Bakersfield 6-1 in the first round, then blanked Southern Illlinois-Edwardsville 2-0 before being eliminated by Emporia State 4-3 in tying for fifth.

2013 UCO Softball The Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association Central Oklahoma is in its first year as a member of the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association. The MIAA, a 15-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, Truman State 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 Missouri, 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 State 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 Nebraska-Kearney and Lindenwood. Nebraska-Omaha left the league in 2011 and Truman State will do the same next year, which will leave 14 schools in the MIAA.
