2015-16 ULM TRACK & FIELD 2014-15 Review ULM Crowns Six Champions at Conference Meet, Most in 20 Years MONROE, La. – For the first time since 1995, the ULM men’s and women’s track & field programs combined for a total of six first-place showings after a huge outing at the 2015 Sun Belt Conference Outdoor Championships. It wasn’t in just one or two categories either. It was across the board in sprints, jumps, throws, a relay race and the decathlon. “I couldn’t be more pleased with how both of our teams performed last weekend. Our kids left in the middle of finals week having wrapped up their academic year early and had super performances over the four days of the meet,” said ULM head coach J.D. Malone. “Obviously, the staff was concerned about the teams’ mental state because it was very stressful taking finals early, much less compressing a five day span into three, but they really came through. We had a wonderful weekend and I are very proud of our kids.”

if I had a really good turnout then I was going to win it,” Grieder said. Grieder, a native of Garland, Texas, broke a 26-year old ULM record of 7,218 points set by Falk Schade in 1989. He also snapped the SBC Championships record of 7,292 set by Ethan Turpen of Arkansas State in 2014. Grieder set personal-records in four of the 10 events. “I knew if everything came to place then I would have had a really good chance to break the record. It really hit in after the pole vault on the second day. I had a really good jump that nobody expected, I didn’t even expect it. That’s when it really set in,” Grieder said. Grieder qualified for NCAA Regionals last season in the pole vault and considered it to be one of his strongest events. Needless to say, his vault of 5.07m blew

In throws, ULM swept gold medals in the men’s and women’s javelin as both Womack and Lowe were crowned champions. Womack, who had taken second and third-place in the competition his first two years, had to overcome adversity after getting hurt on his first throw of the competition.

“Though, I got wrapped up by our trainer and thankfully I was able to push through it with team support yelling behind me.”

ULM totaled 11 All-Conference student-athletes, including eight on the First-Team.

The West Monroe, La., product stepped up on his final throw and fired a 65.34m which was more-than enough to overtake Robert King’s (South Alabama) 63.51m.

Additionally, the Warhawks saw both an all-time school and conference championship record fall with Grieder’s astounding 7,301 points in the 10-event decathlon.

Grieder, who also holds the school record in the indoor heptathlon, will now await to see whether he will make it into the NCAA Finals in Eugene, Ore., on June 10-13. His score has to hold up among top-24 in the country since there are no NCAA Regionals for the decathlon.

“After my first throw I felt a pop in my groin. It hurt a lot and it scared me when it happened, especially because two UL-Lafayette guys had great throws on their first attempts. My confidence was down after that and I was nervous,” Womack said.

The Warhawks earned victories from senior Isaac Grieder in the decathlon, junior Joey Womack in the men’s javelin, sophomore Mi’Ca Lowe in the women’s javelin, sophomore Adriunna Brown in the women’s long jump, junior Andrew Tate in the men’s 400m and the men’s 4x400m close it out with a win.

“I felt confident about where I was at heading into the weekend. I knew that

“My results from the last two years really pushed me. I had a silver and a bronze in my trophy case and I really wanted to complete the collection. I

little bit disappointment that it didn’t happen, but it’s still the goal. Perhaps God has a plan

Conversely on the women’s side, Lowe was in command the whole way. She was atop the leaderboards after her first throw and tossed her best on her third attempt, 45.50m. The throw was nearly a full meter farther than the runner-up.

for me to do it at regionals or maybe even nationals.” Just 90 minutes later, the Schertz, Texas native was back on the track with his teammates running the 4x400m relay in front of a chaotic crowd. Alongside senior Jamel Sams and juniors Nigel Cribbs and Mark Demus, the crew etched a season-best time of 3:09.47. It crushed their previous best of 3:14.54.

“I just went in focused on the things that coach told me. I knew what I was capable of, and I just went in with that mind-set that today is the day and I had to step-up and pull it out,” Lowe said. Lowe, from Walker, La., will look qualify for NCAA Regionals for the second consecutive year. “I didn’t do as well as I wanted to last year at regionals as a freshman, but it didn’t matter. The experience helped a lot and it taught me how to approach the competition,” Lowe said. In the sand, Brown edged out the long jump title on a tiebreak. Her leap of 5.99m tied UL-Lafayette’s Tia Mitchell, and thus the crown was decided on each competitor’s second-best jump. Brown’s mark of 5.96m was just ahead of Mitchell’s 5.95m. “I just tried to stay focused. I came into it looking for a personal-record to get a higher score for regionals, so I wasn’t too worried about the competition as I was about improving my marks,” Brown said. Brown, a product of Macon, Ga., also competed in the 400m hurdles where she notched a top-five time of 1:02.30. In the two events combined, she racked up 14 points, the most for the ULM women.

“I was happy but I was also expecting it due to the fact that we got second last year. We actually beat the same team that we lost to last year,” said Tate. “The atmosphere was what made the 4x4 the best race.”

Men’s 4x400m Relay “Coach taught me a few things and helped me perfect my runs and boost my standards. My main focus at practice is usually with the sprint and hurdles group, but twice I week I will work with jumps. It’s not hard, but it’s a lot on your body,” Brown said. Closing it out on the final day, Tate won both the 400m and was a member of the champion 4x400m relay team. Coming into the meet, Tate was just 0.07 seconds away from breaking the school record in the 400m with a time of 46.42 at the Leon Johnson Invitational in the final regular season competition. He came short of the school record at the SBC Championships, but his time of 47.13 was still good for gold. “I entered the race with the fastest time so I was confident coming in. I was actually trying to break the school record,” Tate said. “I came close to it and was a

Grieder’s decathlon score of 7,301 broke a 26-year ULM record and also the SBC Championships record. Malone also saw Nigel Cribbs break the school record in the 200m indoors with a time of 21.76. The year prior, Malone coached nine Outdoor All-Conference student-athletes including SBC Champion Jamel Sams in the 400m hurdles.

Furthermore, Malone guided Grieder to the ULM heptathlon record after a first-place finish indoors and All-Conference FirstTeam accolades. In 2013, Malone coached Daniel Mutai to SBC Most Outstanding Track Performer and Top Meet Scorer honors. Three more Warhawks qualified to compete at the NCAA East Reginals including Clint Broussard (high jump), Sams (hurdles) and Martin Solomon (hurdles). Additionally, six ULM student-athletes earned All-Louisiana recognition. Malone guided the ULM men to a second-place finish in 2011 at the Sun Belt Outdoor Championships - its highest finish since joining the conference prior to the 2006-07 season - to earn Sun Belt Coach of the Year honors. The Warhawks finished with four conference champions and nine All-Sun Belt selections on the men’s side, while senior Lakeitha Elmore won the shot put on the women’s side. Richard McKay capped the season with a 13th-place finish in the javelin at the 2011 NCAA Outdoor Championships, garnering second-team All-America honors. It marked the second straight year and the third time in four years that ULM has had a track & field All-American. In addition, ULM’s Daniel Mutai became the first male athlete in school history to qualify for the NCAA Cross Country Championships during the 2010 season. Mutai has earned All-Southeast Region the past three seasons, and qualified for his second national meet in 2011. Luther Ambrose became just the second All-American in school history in the 100-meter dash with a third-place finish at the 2010 NCAA Outdoor Championships. Overall, the Warhawks had three Sun Belt Conference champions and two NCAA qualifiers during the outdoor season. ULM had a pair of NCAA qualifiers during the 2009 campaign in Heather Davis and McKay. For Davis it was her third consecutive trip to the NCAA Championships. The Warhawks had nine NCAA Regional qualifiers and also took home five titles at the Sun Belt Outdoor Championships. In 2008, Kyle Kent finished sixth at the NCAA Outdoor Championships to earn All-American honors. Also that season, Davis advanced to her second-straight NCAA Outdoor Championship in the high jump. Four Warhawk athletes won conference titles led by Davis’ high jump championships in both the indoor and outdoor Sun Belt meets. Kent won the outdoor javelin and Destiny Montemayor claimed the Sun Belt title in the weight throw

2015-16 ULM TRACK & FIELD Assistant Coach Larry Jones Assistant Coach / Throws / Fifth Season Larry Jones begins his fifth year as an assistant coach for the ULM track & field squad in 2015-16, working primarily with the ULM throwers. Last season, Jones coached four ULM throwers to NCAA East Regionals. In the javelin, he saw Joey Womack and Mi’Ca Lowe sweep gold medals from both the men’s and women’s divisions at the Sun Belt Conference Outdoor Championships.

SUN BELT CONFERENCE Is the Sun Belt Conference a modern-day fixture among the decisionmakers in the ever-changing world of college athletics? Or is the league a long-time innovator, responsible for advancements in many sports that we now take for granted? Is the Sun Belt home of an alumni base that includes national and international leaders in the areas of government, business and entertainment as well as athletics? Or is the conference one that has established itself as a national contender in a variety of sports, and one that continues to evolve in ways that directly benefit its institutions and more importantly its studentathletes? The answer is yes, yes, yes and yes. The Sun Belt Conference’s “Together We Rise” motto isn’t just hyperbole. It’s proven fact on many different levels, not the least being its place in the hierarchy of collegiate athletics. As the league prepares to celebrate four decades since its founding in 1976, the Sun Belt occupies a “seat at the table” as a permanent part of the NCAA’s 24-member Board of Directors. That alone insures that the conference has a voice in determining the future as college sports continues to change and evolve. Changing and evolving have been hallmarks of the league since its existence. College basketball might be a shadow of its current self had the Sun Belt not led the way in the establishment of the shot clock. The conference also wrote history at the start of the century when it inaugurated football as a league sport – becoming the first alreadyexisting Division I conference to take such action. The Sun Belt was originally founded to give home to some of the nation’s premier mid-major basketball teams, and the league’s history is dotted with success in many different men’s and women’s sports through its history. But when the desire for a higher national profile and the desire of its membership brought about football sponsorship in 2001, the conference was figuratively reborn, and now stands as one of the 10 premier college football leagues in the country. And, with the recent debut of the College Football Playoff, the Sun Belt is guaranteed universal access based strictly on performance. A worthy football team in the Sun Belt can be in the national championship picture, and the league is a permanent part of the “Group of Five” conferences (joining the American Athletic Conference, the Mountain West Conference, the Mid-American Conference and Conference USA) that will send its highest-rated champion to a premier Jan. 1 bowl game. In only 15 years of football, the Sun Belt has earned ties to no fewer than seven bowl games. In addition to the potential of the College Football Playoff, the league has guaranteed spots in the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl, the GoDaddy Bowl, the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl and the new Cure Bowl for bowl-eligible teams each and every season. Beginning in 2016, the Sun Belt will also be part of a conference rotation that will send teams to the Popeyes Bahamas Bowl and the Miami Beach Bowl. No football conference in history has ever boasted as many bowl relationships in its first two decades of existence, but such breakthroughs have been the rule rather than the exception for a league that continues to exceed expectations. Just in the last three seasons, league members have recorded 52 non-conference wins including a record 21 victories outside the league in 2013. The Sun Belt also has a winning record over its fellow “Group of Five” conferences over the past two seasons, and has claimed three bowl victories in those two years. Gridiron success has grown in the league for several years, but success can also happen overnight. New league member Georgia Southern claimed the Sun Belt football title in its first year in the conference last fall. Appalachian State, another league newbie, rattled off six consecutive wins to close the 2014 football season and finish with a winning 7-5 record. Texas State has finished its two football seasons in in the conference as a bowl eligible team, going 6-6 in its inaugural Sun Belt campaign and then 7-5 this past season. Football, though, is by no means the only hallmark of success for the

league. Just this past season, Georgia State knocked off third-seeded Baylor in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament and Little Rock defeated sixth-seeded Texas A&M in the women’s NCAA tournament . With the league’s postseason tournaments headed back to the conference’s home city, the “Big Easy” of New Orleans, and a plethora of standouts returning for this season, the league is poised for another successful hoops season. Baseball and softball continue to put the league in the national spotlight during the spring season, with deep runs into postseason play and high visibility in the national polls becoming a tradition. UL Lafayette’s baseball team was the nation’s No. 1 team in the final third of the 2014 season and has reached the NCAA Super Regional round each of the past two years, while the UL Lafayette softball team has advanced to the Super Regional three straight years including a trip to the 2014 College World Series. Many league sports have made statements on the national level, and that is a tribute to the university and athletic administrators that serve both the league institutions and the student-athletes at each school. That this level of success comes at a time of sweeping change in collegiate athletics adds even more to these accomplishments. With those changes, opportunities for student-athletes to succeed both on and off the field have never been greater, and the Sun Belt is well positioned in the areas of scholarship, student welfare and academic success. During the 2014-15 academic year alone, Sun Belt member institutions awarded nearly $50 million in scholarship funds to over 3,084 student-athletes while also contributing over $2 million from the Student Assistance Fund (SAF) to over 1,779 student-athletes. The league and its institutions rewrite the Sun Belt’s record book each year in grade-point averages and academic honors, and member schools’ success in the NCAA’s APR rankings provide even more proof of the league’s academic commitment. In 2015, the conference doubled the number of teams that received NCAA Public Recognition Awards, given to teams that post APR scores in the top 10 percent of their sport, as 14 teams were among the national honorees compared to seven in 2014. “We have never been as strong as we are now academically and financially, and I believe we are getting stronger all the time athletically,” said former Sun Belt Conference president and Troy University chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr. recently. “I truly believe the best is yet to come.” The strength of any league lies in its membership, with the Sun Belt’s 11-school football membership including Appalachian State, Arkansas State, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, Idaho, UL Lafayette, UL Monroe, New Mexico State, South Alabama, Texas State and Troy. Little Rock and UT Arlington compete in all sports as non-football members while Idaho and New Mexico State are football-only members. Those members give the Sun Belt a mix of the “old” and the “new”, with many long-time Sun Belt institutions continuing to have success and a solid corps of conference newcomers ready to make their marks on the league and national levels. The varied campuses and locations reflect another league strength – its diversity. The mix of regions and regional cultures provide a rare opportunity for the league’s student-athletes to experience many environments. But those same student-athletes can also experience that without leaving their own campuses. For every All-Pro linebacker DeMacus Ware (Troy) and Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Charles Tillman (UL Lafayette), and for every World Series MVP David Freese (South Alabama) coming from Sun Belt campuses, there are also U.S. presidents (Lyndon Johnson, Texas State), business icons (Chick-fil-a president Daniel Cathy, Georgia Southern), nationally-known entertainers (Tim McGraw, UL Monroe, and Ludacris, Georgia State), and there is royalty (Miss America Debbye Turner, Arkansas State). These proud alumni, as well as the thousands of student-athletes and staff members at all of its institutions, are proof that the Sun Belt Conference continues to gain stature and provide the promise of future success with every sunrise. “Together We Rise” has never been more appropriate.

The ULM Strength and Conditioning Department is built around enhancing our athlete’s ability to perform both physically and mentally, on and off the field of play. Physically our objective is to prepare our athletes to compete at a championship level and to prevent injury on and off the field. This is attained by training at a maximal level and incorporating both sport specific and position specific exercises in the weight room and on the field. Our various “prehab” techniques and close partnership with the Athletic Training Department allows us to keep our athletes safe and prevent injury before it occurs. Mentally our objective is to prepare our athletes for the rigors and demands of competition on the field and in life. We look to enhance our athletes’ ability to maintain a high level of focus, maturity, discipline, responsibility, accountability, loyalty, and competitiveness. The ULM Strength and Conditioning Program adheres to and supports all aspects of the NCAA and the Sun Belt Conference. -Joe Girardi, MS, SCCC Director of Football Strength and Conditioning

ATHLETIC TRAINING


WE ARE THE WARHAWKS The Rise of the Warhawks Moving into the Sun Belt Conference in the 2006-07 season, ULM’s athletic department completed a transformation of sorts. Unique to the program, ULM’s Warhawk moniker is the only one at the highest level of NCAA competition and one of only two Warhawks at any collegiate level in the entire nation. ULM’s Warhawks provide fans with multiple points of pride to rally behind. The mascot holds local historical connection to the P-40 ‘Warhawk’ airplane flown by northeast Louisiana’s General Claire Chennault and the Flying Tigers of WWII. The Warhawk is also symbolic of the red-shouldered hawk, a local predatory bird commonly found nesting along Bayou DeSiard and soaring above ULM’s athletic facilities year round. On August 30, 2006, ULM mascot ‘ACE THE WARHAWK’ landed. Wearing bomber jacket, flight helmet and goggles, Ace has provided a perfect representation of the dual meaning of ULM’s mascot. Less than two months later, Warhawk I, a live red-shouldered hawk permanently housed at the Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo in Monroe, La., was added to the ULM family of mascots. Warhawk II now resides at the zoo. Since their arrival, ACE and Warhawk II have become vital parts of the ULM community. Including appearances at home athletic events and other activities around campus, the duo rally fans to help the Warhawks achieve victory. The pair also make appearances across the Monroe and West Monroe community, providing educational opportunities for ULM’s youngest fans. The Ace’s Kids Club is a special membership group for Warhawk fans age 12 and younger. One-year memberships are available and members receive season tickets to all home Warhawk athletic events, an Ace’s Kids Club t-shirt, membership card and invitations to exclusive events.


ULM TRADITION The rafters at Fant-Ewing Coliseum are full and the trophy cases across campus are overflowing with the fruits of ULM’s athletic successes. Beginning with a men’s cross country and track and field conference championship in 1958-59, the Warhawks have a storied run at the top of the standings in each sport over the athletic program’s history. From national championships to basketball Final Fours and collegiate baseball World Series appearances, fans at ULM have become accustomed to watching their teams compete - and win - at the highest level. The Warhawks have advanced to the national semifinals of major tournaments in six different sports and ULM has claimed more than 90 conference championships. The ULM men’s squads have claimed all-sports titles 14 times, including four in the Gulf States Conference (1963, ‘64, ‘65, ‘69), the Atlantic Sun (1980, ‘81, ‘82), and the Southland Conference (1984, ‘88, ‘90, ‘91, ‘92, ‘93, ‘94). The ULM women have grabbed all-sports titles six times in the Southland Conference (1984, ‘85, ‘87, ‘88, ‘90, ‘94). During the 1984 SLC season, ULM became the first program in conference history to win all sports titles on both the men’s and women’s side. The Warhawks would accomplish the feat three more times. After conquering the Southland Conference, ULM made the move to the Sun Belt Conference and has continued its winning ways. Before the Warhawks had even become full members of their new league, the team had won a football conference championship in 2005. One year later, ULM won a divisional title in men’s basketball and followed that up one season later with a 2008 regular season championship in baseball. Baseball again won a conference title, this time a tournament crown in 2012, and the club reached the postseason (NCAA Baton Rouge Regional).

MONROE, La. – Clocking in as ULM’s fastest finisher at the 2015 Sun Belt Conference championships, Colby Carey from the ULM women’s cross country team was named AllLouisiana Freshman of the Year, selected by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association (LSWA). Carey was also named to the All-Louisiana First-Team. “Colby is a truly valuable contributor to our team. She showed a lot of potential in cross country, culminating in her leading us at the Sun Belt Championships,” said ULM cross country coach Josh Hayman. “We certainly cannot wait to see what she can do on the track in her main event, the 800m. She has developed a great attitude to help drive this team and will continue to succeed heading forward.”


The Natchitoches, La., native raced for a 5K time of 21:37.5 at the SBC Championships. It was a huge improvement from her 22:20.87 in the regular season finale at the Crimson Classic. Carey steadily improved her times over the course of the season. She began the year with a 24:44.80 in the 5K at the Southern Miss Invitational, and then slashed over three minutes off her time at the following meet at the Mook Invitational with a 21:40.9. The freshman ran a personal-record of 21:33.11 in the 5K at the Chile Pepper Festival. Carey was the third Warhawk to win a cross country specialty award from the LSWA in the last three years. Dusan Makevic also won Freshman of the Year in 2013 and Pauline Muiruri was awarded Newcomer of the Year that same season.
