UNC ASHEVILLE MISSION STATEMENT UNC Asheville is a selective, public liberal arts institution. UNC Asheville’s Intercollegiate Athletics Program reflects the attitudes and values underlying the University’s overall mission: academic excellence, diversity, equity, integrity, service, and accomplishment. The UNC Asheville athletics program contributes to this liberal arts culture in two ways. First, athletics programs foster a sense of community and pride by fielding NCAA Division I teams and developing talented student-athletes who successfully represent UNC Asheville in competition and reflect the University’s commitment to overall excellence. Accordingly, the athletics program encourages an atmosphere of respect for self and others through the development of ethical conduct, sportsmanship, leadership, and citizenship and provides equitable opportunities for all students and staff, including women, minorities and indivduals of all sexual identities. Second, the program provides an additional campus experience for capable students to grow and develop academically, personally, socially, and athletically. This experience promotes institutional commitment and pride on the part of students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

THIRD YEAR • WESTERN CAROLINA Cameron Maybin of the San Diego Padres, who was drafted in the

Hall of Fame coach Tom Smith is his third year as head of the UNC Asheville baseball program.

first round in 2005.

Last season, Smith directed the Bulldogs to 15 victories and won a Big South Conference series from league champion Coastal Carolina for the first time in eight years. Asheville also picked up its first ever sweep of mountain rival Western Carolina.

In January of 2010, January Smith was inducted into the North Carolina Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame. The Association is made up of coaches of amateur baseball throughout the state.

In his first year, the Bulldogs moved from nine wins to 17 victories. Asheville was a preseason pick to finish in last place in the Big South Conference. The Bulldogs used a late-season surge to finish in seventh place and qualify for the Big South Tournament. Smith’s club won five straight conference games to move from 10th place to the seventh spot. Other highlights included an impressive nonconference victory over Southern Conference champion College of Charleston plus winning conference series from Liberty and Charleston Southern.

Tom and his wife Karen have two children, Kenny and Katie. Kenny enjoyed a standout collegiate career at UNC Wilmington and Western Carolina. He served as a volunteer assistant for two years at Asheville before being hired by MEAC power BethuneCookman last fall.

He has served as a volunteer assistant coach at Asheville in 2008 and a part-time assistant in 2009 before being named head coach. Before coming to UNC Asheville, Smith was one of the top high school coaches in the nation at T.C. Roberson HS in Asheville. He coached the Rams program for 28 years and led the school to three 3-A state titles in 1983, 2000 and 2002. The Rams won 14 conference titles during his tenure. “Tom Smith is a proven leader with tremendous desire who will direct our baseball program forward,” stated Director of Athletics Janet R Cone upon Smith’s hiring. “He has the knowledge of the game of baseball and is a proven recruiter. “We are confident that Tom Smith will get the job done with our baseball program in the classroom and the community,” stated Cone. “We are equally as confident he will lead our program to being just as competitive on the field. Smith had 20 players drafted by major league teams during his time at Roberson. The list includes pitcher Darren Holmes who went to pitch 17 years in the major leagues, current left-hander pitcher Chris Narveson of the Milwaukee Brewers and outfielder

TY WIGGINTON INFIELDER UNC ASHEVILLE, 1998 Ty Wigginton played for UNC Asheville from 1996 through the 1998 season. His records at UNC Asheville include most doubles in a season with 26, most total bases in a season with 149 and most runs scored in a season with 67. In addition, he became the second player in school history to hit three home runs in a game with three against East Tennessee State and set a record for total bases in that game with 14.Ty also became the first UNC Asheville baseball player to be named National Player of the Week when he was honored after hitting eight home runs and driving in 20 runs during a six-game span. He was named as a first team all-conference performer at shortstop that season. Wigginton was drafted by the New York Mets in the 17th round in 1998 and worked hard in the Mets’ minor league system before getting a call in May of 2002 to report to the big leagues. On May 16, 2002, UNC Asheville had its first player in the major leagues when Ty played for the Mets in San Diego. Ty has enjoyed an interesting major league career that has seen him play for the New York Mets, Pittsburgh Pirates, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Houston Astros, Baltimore Orioles, Colorado Rockies and this year the Philadelphia Phillies. A big highlight of his career came in the 2010 season when he selected by Yankee manager Joe Girardi to be on the American League All-Star team. Ty was inducted into the UNC Asheville and Big South Hall of Fame in 2011.

2006 NCAA TOURNAMENT

2006 CLEMSON REGIONAL

David Lost, but Goliath Knows He was in a Fight. Reprinted from Asheville Citizen-Times- June 3, 2006 Not every time a David takes on a Goliath is David going to come out on top. When UNCA’s baseball Bulldogs won their first-ever invitation to the NCAA baseball tournament, the foe they drew was Clemson, the second-ranked team in the country. UNCA knew they were taking the role of David facing a formidable Goliath -- in Goliath’s back yard, no less. Still, the Bulldogs did themselves proud by keeping it close in a 3-0 loss before bowing out of the double elimination tournament with a 5-4 loss to Mississippi State. The heroics started before the team made it to the Clemson Regional. The Bulldogs fought through the field to play in the Big South Conference baseball tournament final against Liberty. Down 10-0 after the third inning, the Bulldogs staged a remarkable rally, scoring 16 runs over the final five innings for a 16-11 victory and an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. Holding a team like Clemson to three runs or fewer -- a feat opponents

managed only seven times against the Tigers -- was a victory in itself. The 5-4 loss to Mississippi State was closely contested, as the Bulldogs had the bases loaded in the ninth inning but were unable to tie or take the lead. In addition to an outstanding showing against bigger, more-established programs, UNCA has good news for next season. After posting a record of 11-42 in the 2005 campaign, the Bulldogs went 28-35 in 2006, and loses only one senior (Charles Pippitt) who played a major role in their success. Next season could be even bigger and brighter for the baseball Bulldogs. Congratulations are in order for the UNCA athletics program, which seems to be on an upswing. Improved facilities, an active athletic director and a taste of success bode well for the future. Said UNCA coach Willie Stewart, a former UNCA player and 2000 graduate, “It hurts to lose, and we’re never happy when we don’t win. But I’m proud of how we competed against two great baseball teams. “We’ve faced a lot of adversity this year, but we never quit. We never quit here, either.

UNC ASHEVILLE HALL OF FAME UNC Asheville’s Athletics Hall of Fame was established in 2003 and has had five classes inducted. A total of 24 athletes and administrators have been enshrined. Of those 34 inductees, three are former baseball players: Brian Shehan, Marc Rosenbaum, Ty Wiggington.

Brian Shehan (1987-90) Inducted in 2004 Brian Shehan produced one of the greatest baseball careers ever at UNC Asheville. He was an all-conference player at first base in the 1988 and 1989 seasons. In 1989, Brian set a single-season record for home runs (19), RBI (59), slugging percentage (.786), doubles (14) and total bases (140). He was ranked nationally in 1989 for home runs, RBI, slugging percentage and total bases. Brian finished his career as the school’s all-time leader in home runs (42), RBI (163), doubles (52) total bases (391) and batting average (.352). He currently holds seven different UNC Asheville hitting records. Brian was a four-year starter for the Bulldogs and was the second player in school history to be drafted by a major league team when the Montreal Expos drafted him in 1990.

Marc Rosenbalm (1988-91) Inducted in 2010 Marc Rosenbalm has remained UNC Asheville’s all-time leader in complete games (13), shutouts (4) and earned run average (3.21) for nearly two decades. He set the school’s season records for wins (11), shutouts (3), innings pitched (117.2) and complete games (11) as a senior in 1991 while being named first-team All-Big South and All-Tournament. He also led the Big South with a 1.50 ERA in 1990.

Ty Wiggington (1995-98) Inducted in 2011 Ty Wiggington played for UNC Asheville from 1996 through the 1998 season. His records at UNC Asheville include most doubles in a season with 26, most total bases in a season with 149 and most runs scored in a season with 67. In addition, he became the second player in school history to hit three home runs in a game with three against East Tennessee State and set a record for total bases in that game with 14. Ty also became the first UNC Asheville baseball player to be named National Player of the Week when he was honored after hitting eight home runs and driving in 20 runs during a six-game span. He was named as a first team all-conference performer at shortstop that season. Wigginton was drafted by the New York Mets in the 17th round in 1998 and worked hard in the Mets’ minor league system before getting a call in May of 2002 to report to the big leagues. On May 16, 2002, UNC Asheville had its first player in the major leagues when Ty played for the Mets in San Diego.

THE BIG SOUTH Since its founding in 1983, the Big South Conference has matured into a competitive leader in college athletics, actively pursuing excellence on the field of play and in the classroom. The League’s growing presence as an NCAA Division I athletic conference is evident by athletic accomplishments on the national stage, innovative marketing and media partnerships, increased television packages, and quality athletic competition while intentionally fostering the academic, personal, social, athletic and leadership development of each student-athlete. This has evolved into the Conference’s mission of “Developing Leaders Through Athletics.” The Big South Conference was formed on August 21, 1983, when Charleston Southern (then Baptist College) Athletic Director Howard Bagwell and Augusta President George Christenberry began recruiting members into the Big South, receiving initial commitments from Augusta, Charleston Southern, Campbell, Coastal Carolina and Winthrop. One month later, Dr. Edward M. Singleton was selected as the League’s first Commissioner and continued to solicit new members. His efforts led to the additions of Armstrong State, Radford and UNC Asheville, giving the Big South more than the required six members to constitute an official conference. The Big South’s first year of competition was in the Fall of 1984, and in September 1986, the Big South Conference was granted fullfledged NCAA Division I status. During its infancy and prior to securing automatic bids to NCAA Championships, the Big South made early strides in earning at-large berths in several national postseason events, including volleyball, women’s basketball and women’s golf. In 1989, George F.“Buddy” Sasser replaced the retiring Dr. Singleton as Commissioner, and in 1990, the League received its first automatic bid -- receiving an automatic qualifier to the NCAA Baseball Championship. Under Sasser’s seven years of leadership, the Conference implemented its public relations and compliance programs, and introduced its first-ever men’s basketball television package, featuring the Big South competing among some of the finest teams in the nation. In August 1996, Kyle B. Kallander replaced Sasser as the League’s third Commissioner, and in his 15 years at the helm of the Big South, Kallander has been instrumental in aggressively promoting the Conference to new heights. The Conference has enjoyed record levels in marketing revenue during the past several years, he has brought television coverage to Big South women’s basketball, baseball and softball for the first time in Conference history, as well as increased national television exposure to the League as a whole through aggressive and unique television packages. Under Kallander’s leadership, the Big South developed and initiated its first long-range strategic plan, re-affirming the League’s vision as a distinctive athletic Conference committed to the quality of institutional life through athletic competition. He also spearheaded the efforts to add football as a championship sport, which came to fruition in 2002, and oversaw the additions of men’s and women’s indoor track & field in 1997. The Conference’s 19th championship sport -- women’s lacrosse, will begin play in 2012-13 with seven members. At the same time, Kallander has solidified Conference membership, as an all-time high 11 member institutions comprise the 28-year League in 2011-12. Recent additions include High Point, Gardner-Webb and Presbyterian College, plus the return of charter member Campbell University this year. Kallander’s long range vision has also included technological advancements, as the Conference introduced its first live event video streaming in 2005 and has since expanded its video offerings to more than 700 events annually through a partnership with the member institutions, as well as the creation of several online and social media platforms.

In the last 15 years alone, the Big South Conference has experienced monumental growth and success in nearly every sport. During this time, the Conference has had an individual National Champion six times, more than 240 All-Americans, has reached the “Sweet 16” in men’s soccer, women’s basketball and baseball, has received national Top 25 rankings in football, men’s soccer, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, baseball, men’s outdoor track & field, and men’s golf, had an individual selected to play in the NCAA Singles Championship six times in addition to the first men’s tennis doubles at-large selection, had the first women’s golf program advance to the national finals, had the No. 1 ranked men’s golfer in the country, has had the nation’s top scoring men’s basketball team five consecutive years as well as the national men’s basketball scoring leader twice, received an at-large playoff berth in the Football Championship Subdivision in 2006, has had four NFL Draft picks, and had an institution finish fifth in the NCAA Men’s Golf Championships - the Conference’s highest-ever team finish in an NCAA event. In 2006-07, the Big South was the only Conference nationwide to have an at-large participant in the football playoffs (Coastal Carolina), a team in the Second Round of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament (Winthrop) and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Baseball Regionals (Coastal Carolina). In fact, Coastal Carolina’s baseball program has been a No. 1 seed four out of the last seven years - including a national seed for the first time in 2010, while the Chanticleers’ FCS playoff berth in 2006 came in just the fifth-year of the Big South’s football existence. The 2009-10 season saw Liberty’s Sam Chelanga win two NCAA National Championships (cross country, 10,000-meter run), Coastal Carolina’s baseball team reach the Super Regionals for the second time in three years as well as being ranked No. 1 in the national RPI and as high as No. 3 in the national polls; and three women’s basketball teams reach the postseason for the first time in Conference history. Last season, Chelanga won two more NCAA National Championships (cross country, outdoor 5,000-meter run), the Big South had its first automatic bid recipient in football (Coastal Carolina), UNC Asheville reached the Second Round of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, Coastal Carolina’s women’s golf team was the first in Conference history to advance to the NCAA Championship out of Regional play, and a League-record 18 baseball players were drafted in the 2011 MLB First-Year Player Draft. Several former Big South student-athletes have also reached national prominence in recent years. Coastal Carolina’s Amber Campbell made the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team - one of five former Big South athletes to compete in the Games; VMI’s Reggie Williams reached the NBA with the Golden State Warriors in 2010, UNC Asheville’s Ty Wigginton was named an American League All-Star in 2010, and Coastal Carolina’s Dustin Johnson has won four PGA Tour events since departing the Big South Conference in 2007 and tied for runner-up at the 2011 Open Championship. The Conference’s tagline, “Developing Leaders Through Athletics” was unveiled in 2008-09 in conjunction with the Conference’s 25th Anniversary. The League also honored its heritage with the Top 25 “Best of the Best” moments in League history from 1983-2008, with Liberty University’s 10-year women’s basketball championship run from 19962007 being crowned the No. 1 moment in the Big South’s first 25 years. The Conference’s on-field accomplishments have been duplicated in the classroom. Annually, more than 40 percent of Conference student-athletes are named to the Big South’s Presidential Honor Roll for maintaining a cumulative 3.0 grade-point average, and the League has had more than 95 Academic All-Americans in its 27 years of existence. Furthermore, the Big South has a record number of NCAA Public Recognition Awards for APR progress the last two years.

It is the Bulldogs (28-33) first ever Big South Championship in baseball and sends Asheville to its first ever NCAA Regional appearance. The baseball team becomes only the second UNC Asheville team to make a NCAA Tournament in any sport joining the 2003 men’s basketball team.

Asheville added another run in the top half of the seventh. Arrington led off with a walk and was moved to second on an Edmund Locklear walk. Vernon reached on a fieldier’s choice, moving Arrington to third. Pippitt hit a sacrifice fly to center field to plate Arrington.

“I give the guys a tremendous amount of credit,” said Stewart. We stuck together and never quit. This is a tremendous accomplishment, what we did this weekend. I could not be happier for these guys.”

Asheville took its first lead of the game in the top of the eighth. With one away, Burnich was hit by a pitch and moved over on a single by Mattison. Henson singled to load the bases. Burnich scored on a groundout by Arrington, moving Mattison to third and Henson to second. Locklear followed with a walk to load the bases.Vernon followed with a grand slam to clear the bases, his seventh home run of the year and the second grand slam for the Bulldogs this season.

The Flames (39-21) sent 13 men to the plate in the bottom of the second, scoring nine runs on eight hits to take the 9-0 lead. Chad Miller posted two RBI in the inning. Liberty added one run in the bottom of the third to push the lead to 10-0. With one out, Chad Miller moved to first on a walk and moved to second as Michael Just singled through the right side.

Liberty scored one in the bottom of the ninth to cut the lead to 16-11 but that would be as close as they would get. UNC Ashevilles’s Alan DeRatt picked up his second win of the tournament and improves to 8-4, while the Flames’ Phillip Thompson took the loss, falling to 6-7 on the season. With the win, UNC Asheville picks up the Big South’s automatic bid and records its school record 28th victory of the season.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING UNC Asheville Featured in Princeton Review’s “The Best 376 Colleges” UNC Asheville is featured in the Princeton Review’s “The Best 376 Colleges – 2012 Edition,” and also included on several “best of” lists within the annual guidebook released today. The Princeton Review ranked the top 15 percent of colleges and universities, based on a survey of 122,000 students who provide candid assessments of their institutions. The Princeton Review praised UNC Asheville as offering a “top-notch academic experience,” citing the liberal arts curriculum, challenging course material, and professors who are devoted and passionate about their fields of study. “The professors’ enthusiasm for each course is contagious,” said a student quoted in the guide. An environmental studies major added, “The classes are small enough that the professors know you by name and seem to care if you do well … tutoring sessions are free and plentiful.” UNC Asheville also received a high “quality of life” ranking of 92 (scale maximum is 99). Students told the Princeton Review that they love living and eating in Asheville and the guide lists UNC Asheville as #16 on its national “best of” lists for the categories “Town-Gown Relations are Great,” and “Great College Towns.” Residence life, outdoor recreation, athletics and opportunities for relaxing in downtown Asheville were among the features commended for rounding out the college experience at UNC Asheville. Earlier this year, the Princeton Review ranked UNC Asheville as one of the nation’s 50 “Best Value” public colleges, and “A Best in the Southeast.” This assessment is echoed by other prominent college rankings. In July, the “Fiske Guide to Colleges” called UNC Asheville “one of the best education bargains in the country.” UNC Asheville was also named one of America’s “10 Best Colleges for the Money” by bankrate.com, and praised for quality and value by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, and in the most recent edition of U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges.”

Fiske Guide Gives High Marks to UNC Asheville and its Environmental Studies Program UNC Asheville is once again ranked among the nation’s top colleges in the 2012 edition of the “Fiske Guide to Colleges” published in July. The Fiske Guide calls UNC Asheville “one of the best educational bargains in the country.” “This public liberal arts university offers all the perks that are generally associated with pricier private institutions: rigorous academics, small classes, and a beautiful setting,” says the Fiske Guide, noting that UNC Asheville provides all this for a fraction of the cost of a private college. “I have been astounded by the quality of the teaching,” said a senior quoted in the guide. “There are no teaching assistants, only professors, and a large majority of them have the highest degree in their field.” In addition, for the eighth consecutive year, UNC Asheville’s Environmental Studies Program was named to the Fiske Guide’s list of pre-professional programs with unusual strength in preparing students for careers. Students in UNC Asheville’s program learn to address environmental issues through a multidisciplinary approach that includes biology, ecology, geology, chemistry, physics, economics, public policy, and other natural and social sciences. Undergraduate research is an important feature of the curriculum, and the Environmental Studies Department stresses on-the-job internships in organizations involved with environmental issues. Earlier this year, UNC Asheville was named one of America’s “10 Best Colleges for the Money” by bankrate.com. The university was ranked among the nation’s 50 “2011 Best Value Colleges” by the Princeton Review, and listed among the top 100 public colleges by Kiplinger Personal Finance. The most recent edition of U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” praised UNC Asheville’s faculty for its “unusually strong commitment to undergraduate teaching,” and ranked UNC Asheville 5th in the nation on the “Up-and-Comers” list of liberal arts colleges.

UNC Asheville Ranked 8th Among Nation’s Top Public Liberal Arts Colleges by U.S. News & World Report UNC Asheville received high marks in the 2012 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges,” released September 13. The new survey ranks UNC Asheville as the eighth best public liberal arts college in the nation. U.S. News & World Report ranked 252 liberal arts colleges, 225 private and 27 public, in this year’s survey. The annual college rankings look at a range of measures, including academic reputation, commitment to instruction, student abilities and admissions selectivity, college financial resources, graduation and retention rates, and alumni financial support. Said UNC Asheville Chancellor Anne Ponder, “It is always gratifying to be recognized for the great work our faculty and staff undertake every day as we challenge and inspire our students to great scholarship, research and service. It is especially rewarding, in this economic climate, to be able to assure access to a stellar educational experience for all students, regardless of their financial situation. These rankings affirm our continued success in both endeavors.” UNC Asheville was also again recognized by U.S. News & World Report for affordability as measured by student debt.The university ranked 22nd among 252 private and public national liberal arts colleges for least debt among students graduating in 2010. The U.S. News & World Report rankings are among several accolades UNC Asheville has recently received. In August 2011, Forbes magazine ranked UNC Asheville 26th in the nation on its “Top 100 Best Buy Colleges” roster. Also in August, UNC Asheville was included in the Princeton Review’s new edition of “The Best 376 Colleges” and as ranked as one of 20 institutions that have “Great College Towns.” In July 2011, the “Fiske Guide to Colleges” ranked UNC Asheville among the nation’s top colleges, and for the eighth consecutive year, UNC Asheville’s Environmental Studies Program was among 29 in the nation that showed unusual strength in preparing students for careers. In June 2011, UNC Asheville was named one of America’s “10 Best Colleges for the Money” by Bankrate.com, a leading online source of financial information. UNC Asheville was the only college in North Carolina to earn a place on this list. In January 2011, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance again ranked UNC Asheville among the nation’s top 100 public colleges for its combination of outstanding education with economic value.

Janet R. Cone Director of Athletics Senior Administrator for University Enterprises

Janet R. Cone is in her eighth year as Director of Athletics at UNC Asheville. She also serves as the school as Senior Administrator for University Enterprises.

Last year, Cone saw the UNC Asheville men’s basketball team win the Big South Conference championship and advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. In addition, the Bulldog women’s indoor track and field squad finished in third place, the highest finish in school history. Senior sprinter Natalie Pearson made her second appearance in the NCAA National Outdoor Track and Field meet. Two years ago, Chancellor Anne Ponder appointed Cone to the newly-created position of Senior Administrator for University Enterprises. In this position, Cone oversees the Wilma Sherrill Center, manage specific community relationships and serve as a member of UNC Asheville’s fundraising team. She continues as a member of the Chancellor’s Senior Staff and assists Chancellor Ponder in more closely aligning the university with the North Carolina Center for Creative Retirement. In 2009, Cone created the Asheville Sports Commission to help bring athletic events to the Asheville area. Her leadership helped land the Southern Conference men’s and women’s basketball tournament to return to Asheville starting in 2012. Student-Athletes have excelled in the classroom under Cone’s leadership. In 2004, she created the Athletic Director’s 3.0 + Club that recognizes all student-athletes who make a 3.0 or better grade point average each semester. More than 700 student-athletes have made the club during Cone’s six years, and in 2009-10, a record number of student-athletes earned that distinction. During that same time period, more than 600 student-athletes have been named to the Big South Presidential Honor Roll, and in 2009-10 more than 60 percent of UNC Asheville’s student-athletes have earned this impressive academic distinction. The Department of Athletics has also successfully hosted two Big South Conference Tournaments that produced revenue for the school. Cone has overseen construction projects that has dramatically improved the facilities in which UNC Asheville’s Bulldog student-athletes compete and train. (1) The Wilma Sherrill Center for Health and Wellness/Kimmel Arena was finished last spring and is being used this semester. Funded partly through a $35 million state appropriation, Cone helped raise more than seven million dollars in private funds to construct the Kimmel Arena, a major convocation space that will accommodate larger group events than the campus has been able to host before. Among other things, this will allow the university to host its own graduation on campus, attract major venue speakers and performances, and will secure a future home for men’s and women’s basketball teams. The inaugural game in Kimmel Arena will be against UNC Chapel Hill on Nov. 13 and that game will be nationally televised by ESPNU. (2) Renovation and repairs to the Karl Straus Track began in the spring of 2009. Cone helped raised more than one million dollars in private funding for the track project. (3) Cone negotiated a partnership with Crowne Plaza Hotel and Resort for construction of a new Bulldog tennis facility which has indoor courts, composition courts and six hard courts that was completed n the fall of 2009. The facility has been the home of Bulldog men’s and women’s tennis for the past two seasons and this spring will host the Big South Conference men’s and women’s tennis tournaments for the first time in school history. Highlights of the 2007-08 year included the men’s basketball team being co-regular season champions of the Big South Conference and earning a bid to the National Invitational Tournament, making UNC Asheville the first men’s basketball team in Big South history to receive a bid to the NIT. Cone helped the department successfully host the Big South Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament and Women’s Basketball Tournament in back-to-back weekends. In October of 2007, Cone was named the 2007 Division I-AAA Administrator of the Year by the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletic Administrators. UNC Asheville Chancellor Anne Ponder was delighted to see Cone receive the award. “Janet Cone’s inspirational leadership has set a very high standard for our student-athletes and our coaches, all of whom continue to be winners both on and off the field,” stated Ponder. “We are thrilled that she is being recognized in this way for her vision, her energy, and her tenacity, qualities our University benefits from each and every day.”

ROCKY Since UNC Asheville first fielded athletics teams in the 1930s (then known as Biltmore College), the bulldog has been its mascot. Early students chose the bulldog for its fierce and tenacious reputation. In the decades that have followed, the bulldog has become a beloved symbol of our University. In 1948, “Puck,” arrived on campus and began a tradition of live bulldog mascots that lasted into the 1980s. Puck, named after the character in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, was followed by Puck II and in the 1960s by Chuga-lug. In the 1980s the campus welcomed Winston, named after British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, both for his bulldogged resolve as well as his appearance.Winston appeared for only a year and the tradition of a live mascot fell out of use. In 2009 thanks to a group of student organizers, UNC Asheville welcomed a new bulldog mascot to the University community. “Rocky I” made his first public appearance at halftime of UNC Asheville’s homecoming basketball game on Feb. 21, 2009. Alumni couple, Alexis Johnson (’97) and Ed Johnson (’96), also a member of the math faculty, are his keepers. The name “Rocky” was suggested by staff member Nancy Williams during a naming contest sponsored by the Athletics Department in 1995. Though the rumor has often been that the name came from Sylvester Stallone’s famous character, Rocky Balboa, which is based on the American prize fighter Rocky Marciano, the name was chosen because it means steadfast, much like the mountains that surround campus. Ironically, the name “Rocky,” which is of English origin, is a derivation of the name “Roch” (also Rocco and Roque) after St. Roch, the Patron Saint of Dogs. In addition to the live bulldogs, the UNC Asheville mascot has also been depicted by an army of costumed students. Since the 1960s, students dressed as the bulldog have rallied the fans at thousands of games in support of Bulldog Athletics. The present incarnation of Rocky was introduced during the 2006-2007 season and is the first to accurately reflect the logo image of the bulldog used on signs and in print publications. That image, introduced during the 2004-05 season is the fifth official incarnation of the UNC Asheville bulldog logo. In the late 1990s, the image of the bulldog, or “Rocky,” was immortalized in aluminum through a gift by the Class of 1998. Sculpted by Matt West (‘00) and modeled after a canine friend of the University, Pete “Bubba” McGill, the statue of Rocky stands in front of the Justice Center as a sentinel over campus. Careful observers will note a chipped tooth and a torn ear, signs of his ferocity. Despite his tough outward appearance, the statue of Rocky is beloved by fans. Continuing a tradition begun by the Class of 1998, each year, during convocation and commencement, freshman and seniors rub his head for good luck before going to the ceremonies. Seniors are also often spotted getting their picture made riding Rocky in the days leading up to graduation. UNC Asheville is proud of its bulldog heritage. Today, Rocky, in all of his forms serves as a rallying point for fans far and wide.

THE NCAA Dead period:

Important NCAA Terms A prospective student-athlete is a student who has started classes for the ninth grade. In addition, a student who has not started classes for the ninth grade becomes a prospective student-athlete if the institution provides such an individual (or the individual’s relatives or friends) any financial assistance or other benefits that the institution does not provide to prospective students generally. An individual remains a prospective student-athlete until one of the following occurs (whichever is earlier): (a) The individual officially registers and enrolls in a minimum full-time program of studies and attends classes in any term of a four-year collegiate institution’s regular academic year (excluding summer); or (b) The individual participates in a regular squad practice or competition at a four-year collegiate institution that occurs before the beginning of any term; or (Revised: 1/11/89, 1/10/90) (c) The individual officially registers and enrolls and attends classes during the summer prior to initial enrollment. (Adopted: 4/28/05, Revised: 1/17/09)

Contact: A contact is any face-to-face encounter between a prospective student-athlete or the prospective student-athlete’s parents, relatives or legal guardians and an institutional staff member or athletics representative during which any dialogue occurs in excess of an exchange of a greeting. Any such face-to-face encounter that is prearranged (e.g., staff member positions himself or herself in a location where contact is possible) or that takes place on the grounds of the prospective student-athlete’s educational institution or at the site of organized competition or practice involving the prospective student-athlete or the prospective studentathlete’s high school, preparatory school, two-year college or all-star team shall be considered a contact, regardless of whether any conversation occurs. However, an institutional staff member or athletics representative who is approached by a prospective student-athlete or the prospective student-athlete’s parents, relatives or legal guardians at any location shall not use a contact, provided the encounter was not prearranged and the staff member or athletics representative does not engage in any dialogue in excess of a greeting and takes appropriate steps to immediately terminate the encounter.

Contact Period: A contact period is that period of time when it is permissible for authorized athletics department staff members to make in-person, off-campus recruiting contacts and evaluations.

Evaluation: Evaluation is any off-campus activity designed to assess the academic qualifications or athletics ability of a prospective student-athlete, including any visit to a prospective student-athlete’s educational institution (during which no contact occurs) or the observation of a prospective student-athlete participating in any practice or competition at any site.

Evaluation Period: An evaluation period is a period of time when it is permissible for authorized athletics department staff members to be involved in off-campus activities designed to assess the academic qualifications and playing ability of prospective studentathletes. No in-person, off-campus recruiting contacts shall be made with the prospective student-athlete during an evaluation period.

Quiet Period: A quiet period is a period of time when it is permissible to make in-person recruiting contacts only on the institution’s campus. No in-person, off-campus recruiting contacts or evaluations may be made during the quiet period.

A dead period is a period of time when it is not permissible to make in-person recruiting contacts or evaluations on or off the institution’s campus or to permit official or unofficial visits by prospective student-athletes to the institution’s campus. The provision of complimentary admissions to a prospective studentathlete during a dead period is prohibited, except as provided in Bylaw 13.7.2.5 for a prospective student-athlete who visits an institution as part of a group. During a dead period, a coaching staff member may not serve as a speaker at or attend a meeting or banquet at which prospective student-athletes are in attendance, except as provided in Bylaw 13.1.8.1, and may not visit a prospective student-athlete’s educational institution. It remains permissible, however, for an institutional staff member to write or telephone a prospective student-athlete during a dead period.

Initial Eligibility: A student-athlete who enrolls in a member institution as an entering freshman with no previous full-time college attendance shall meet specific NCAA academic requirements, as certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center, as approved by the Executive Committee, and any applicable institutional and conference regulations, to be considered a qualifier and thus be eligible for financial aid, practice and competition during the first academic year in residence. For further information please visit, www.eligibilitycenter.org.
