Young Bulldog Squad Looking To Make A Name The UNC Asheville men’s soccer team played 10 one-goal matches in 2011 DEFENSE and only won three of them. The Bulldogs hope to reverse that trend in 2012. The Bulldogs were hit hard by graduation in the back but return some talented returnees and have some newcomers who could make an impact. Asheville was a very competitive team a year ago but finished with a 4-12-3 overall record. The Bulldogs took top-ranked UNC Chapel Hill to overtime before falling and earned road wins over Big South Conference foes Radford and Winthrop.Throw in three ties, and Matt Kern’s club was so close to having a winning season. “We were close to having a pretty good season,” admitted Kern. “We had 10 one-goal matches and three ties. A goal here, a goal there, and the record is a lot better. “What we’re looking for in 2012 is simply to score a few more goals and give up a few less goals,” added Kern. “We want to score around 25 goals and only give up on average a goal a match. If we can do that, then I believe we can have a pretty good season.”

/// UNC ASHEVILLE BULLDOGS ///

Asheville will have some work to do to replace the scoring it produced in 2011. The Bulldogs’ top two goal scorers – Jake Hagedorn (8) and Bryan George (5) – accounted for 13 of the Blue & White’s 21 goals. Both have graduated along with All-Conference goalkeeper Lassi Hurskainen. Kern’s club graduated eight seniors from last year. “We graduated a great deal of skill on the field along with leadership,” declared Kern. “The cupboard isn’t bare, but we’re going to need our returning players and newcomers to step up and make a difference right away. “And I’m confident we can be better this year,” added Kern. “We have a nice core of leadership returning, plus we believe we have some talented newcomers coming into the program who are ready to make an impact.” GOALKEEPER

Bobby Castro Junior Bobby Castro will anchor Asheville’s defense in the back in 2012. Castro will serve as the Bulldogs’ captain this season and after enjoying an excellent summer playing club soccer.

The Bulldogs will miss Hurskainen, who was a four-year starter for Asheville and completed his career as the Big South’s all-time leader in saves with 408. “Bobby is quite versatile and can play anywhere,” admitted Kern. “He’ll play His 11 shutouts are second best in school history. In three of his four years in the center of our defense and will be a big presence for us this year.” with the Bulldogs, Hurskainen played every minute of every match during that particular season. Joining Castro in the back will be junior Hans Lohmeyer. He has improved with each season and will be counted on more in 2012. But Asheville has some options in 2012. Start with sophomore Dan Jackson. He backed up Hurskainen last season and played in the Bulldogs exhibition “Hans is a good simple player who always seems to find his way in the matches. Jackson was Asheville’s starter in the spring. lineup,” declared Kern. “He’s someone who can play in the midfield or as a central defender.” “Dan had a good spring for us,” explained Kern. “He is a good communicator and has quick reflexes.

Sophomore Alex Chu didn’t play last season but will get a chance to be on “Zak is 6-1 and is quite strong,” commented Kern. “He comes from a great the pitch in 2012. club program in Baltimore.

He’ll battle for playing time this year.” cator,” said Kern. “He just needs some more game experience, and he’ll be able to make a big contribution.” Freshman Jaron Bradley enjoyed a spectacular prep and club career in Charlotte. Sophomore A.J. Iiames played 14 matches and started 10 times as a freshman. He did a solid job in the back but his status is questionable for this year. “Jaron is used to playing at a high level of soccer,” admitted Kern. “He’s good Iiames suffered an injury and may not be back this year. with his feet and has soft hands. Jaron will push for time along with Dan and Zak.” “We’re just going to have to see if A.J. can play this year,” admitted Kern. “He played well as a freshman last season.” Kern believes the goalkeeper spot is in good shape for 2012. The newcomers start with junior transfer Mick Giordano. The Greenville, “You can’t replace Lassi. He was a tremendous player and leader,” said Kern.

and then knows when to make a pass.” Asheville has two freshmen who will get serious looks from the coaching staff for playing time this year. Erik Casterline joins the Blue & White after a stellar club and prep career in High Point. “Erik is a great two-way player who is quite comfortable playing in the back,” stated Kern. “We’re looking at him as a right back and someone who can make an immediate impact.” Cole Schwietering will be Asheville’s tallest player this year at 6-3. He’s from Fuquay-Varina, N.C. “Cole is another player we’ve signed with great high school and club experience,” said Kern. “His height (6-3) is a real asset, and we’re confident he’ll compete for a starting spot right away as a freshman.” MIDFIELD The Bulldogs return a nice mixture of experience and newcomers in the midfield. Start with junior Rob May. The Asheville native transferred to the Bulldog program last year after spending a year at national power Charlotte. He started for Asheville in the midfield, and Kern expects even more this year from the former Roberson standout.

David Parra

Junior Sam Rossabi has been a steady player for the Blue & White during Andrew Sotak enjoyed a great prep and club career in Fuquay-Varina, N.C. his career. as a high school teammate of classmate Cole Schwietering. “We were really pleased with Sam this spring as he did a great job in our “Andrew has a lot to offer,” admitted Kern. “He’s had a superb youth career matches,” explained Kern. “He is one of the hardest-working players I’ve and is used to playing at a high level of competition.

MATT KERN HEAD COACH • THIRD SEASON • HARTWICK, 1988 Matt Kern, a former assistant coach for the UNC Asheville men’s and women’s soccer programs, is in his third year as head coach of the Bulldog men’s program.

His wife Chapman is the Director of Athletics at Asheville School. They have two children, Brooks (17) and Emerson (13).

He succeeded long-time men’s head coach Steve Cornish, who stepped down in the spring of 2010 to accept a coaching and teaching position at Shattuck-St. Mary’s Academy in Minnesota.

/// UNC ASHEVILLE BULLDOGS ///

Kern, who has worked as a head coach at the University of the South and Wofford College, was hired in June 2010 after spending two years working in Asheville. He assisted both the Bulldog men’s and women’s soccer teams as their Goalkeeper Coach and was the Special Programs Director of Coaching with the Asheville Buncombe Youth Soccer Association.

He enjoyed a standout collegiate career at Hartwick College from 1984-87. Kern was a four-year starter and helped lead the school to two Final Fours, three Elite Eight appearances and four Sweet 16’s. He graduated from Hartwick in 1988.

Kern coached at Wofford College for six seasons from 2002 through 2007. The Terrier program steadily improved under his guidance and set a school record for wins in Division I in 2007. He left the program in good hands as Wofford won the Southern Conference championship in 2009. All 11 starters for the Terriers’ championship team were players Kern brought into the program. He coached for 11 years at The University of The South (Sewanee) before going to Wofford. He was named Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year after the 2000 and 2001 seasons. Kern led the school to the 2001 SCAC championship and a trip to the NCAA Division III Tournament. The Tigers went 31-6-1 under Kern in his final two years at Sewanee. He also coached the golf team and was Director of Intramurals during his tenure. The Maryland native was an assistant coach at Springfield College for one year and helped the program set a school record for wins and a national ranking.

JOE BURNETT THIRD SEASON • UNC GREENSBORO, 2008

/// UNC ASHEVILLE BULLDOGS ///

Former UNC Greensboro standout Joe Burnett is in his third year as an assistant soccer coach with the UNC Asheville men’s program.

Joe and his wife Tiffany reside in Asheville.

Burnett, a native of Winston-Salem, N.C., helped lead the Spartans to three appearances in the NCAA Tournament and was named the 2008 Southern Conference Tournament’s Most Valuable Player. “We are really fortunate to have Joe Burnett as part of the UNC Asheville soccer family,” said Kern. “He has been a real asset to our program the past two seasons.” The Spartans won three SoCon Tournament titles during Burnett’s tenure (2005, 2006, 2008), along with two regular season titles in 2005 and 2006. UNCG reached the SoCon Tournament final in 2007, but fell to Furman in overtime of the championship game. During Burnett’s senior season he started in 22 of 23 contests, logging 1,713 minutes of playing time. That season the Spartans defeated Duke University 2-0 to advance past the first round of the NCAA Tournament. UNCG then defeated Loyola (Md.) 2-1 to advance to the Final 16 before falling to South Florida on penalty kicks. In his first two seasons, UNCG finished ranked 18th in the country by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, compiling a 32-14-2 record over those two years. During his career the Spartans amassed 53 victories overall with a 16-10-1 record in conference. Burnett spent the 2009 season as an assistant coach at West Forsyth High School in Clemmons, N.C.

THE BIG SOUTH CONFERENCE 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.

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 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.

/// UNC ASHEVILLE BULLDOGS ///

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 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.

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.

ABOUT THE UNIVERSITY As the University of North Carolina at Asheville celebrates eighty years of excellence in higher education, the campus community welcomes new challenges and greater successes as one of the nation’s leading liberal arts colleges. From its beginnings as Buncombe County Junior College, where 86 students enrolled in 1927 to further their educations beyond high school, the University has valued liberal arts ideals and community engagement. Its special commitment to student learning and undergraduate education was reaffirmed when it joined the University of North Carolina system in 1969 as the University of North Carolina at Asheville. The University maintains its liberal arts imperative, as the designated undergraduate liberal arts University of the 17-campus University of North Carolina system.

Vision UNC Asheville students, within a diverse and inclusive community, experience liberal arts education at its best.

Mission UNC Asheville is distinctive in the UNC system as its designated liberal arts university. Our practice of the liberal arts emphasizes the centrality of learning and discovery through exemplary teaching, innovative scholarship, creative expression, co-curricular activities, undergraduate research, engaged service, and practical experience. Primarily undergraduate, UNC Asheville offers a liberal arts education characterized by high quality faculty-student interaction.We offer this challenging educational experience to all promising students who are committed to liberal learning and personal growth.

At UNC Asheville, we respond to the conditions and concerns of the contemporary world both as individuals and as a university. We incorporate economic, social and environmental sustainability into our institutional practices and curriculum. With a range of associated centers, partnerships, and initiatives, we fulfill our public responsibility to address the needs of our community through a continuum of learning. We develop a commitment to continuing service characterized by an informed, responsible, and creative engagement with the Asheville area, the southern Appalachian region, the state of North Carolina, and a diverse and increasingly connected world.

Alma Mater

/// UNC ASHEVILLE BULLDOGS ///

Our liberal arts educational approach emphasizes life skills including critical thinking, clear and thoughtful expression, and honest open inquiry. Students undertake concentrated study in one area while simultaneously developing an understanding of the connections among disciplines. We encourage students to clarify, develop and live their own values while respecting the views and beliefs of others. In addition, we cultivate an understanding of the dimensions of human diversity while recognizing the common humanity of all. We believe a quality liberal arts education enables our graduates to be lifelong learners and to lead successful, flourishing lives as leaders and contributors to their communities.

In 2000 the university community set about the task of writing a new Alma Mater—the official anthem of UNC Asheville, sung at all ceremonial events—to replace the one from the 1960s. In Latin, alma mater means “nourishing mother,” and it also refers to the school one attended. Hail Our Alma Mater, Hail UNCA. Learning be your watchword, Greatness be your way. High upon the mountains, In the Land of Sky, Stands our Alma Mater, Lift your voices high. Noble Alma Mater, Hear our words of praise. May we love and honor you, Until the end of days. /// FEAR THE DOG ///

DR. ANNE PONDER CHANCELLOR - UNC ASHEVILLE Dr. Anne Ponder became the sixth Chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Asheville in October 2005. She began her tenure by leading a campuswide collaboration to create a dynamic and viable five- to seven-year strategic plan and revised mission statement.

/// UNC ASHEVILLE BULLDOGS ///

With this focus, UNC Asheville has made major strides as a national leader in the liberal arts and has become a one of the top choices for students seeking a rigorous and multifaceted educational experience. During her tenure, the university was chosen as the first national headquarters for the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges and several majors in Religious Studies and Anthropology have been added to the curriculum. Dr. Ponder has encouraged innovative collaboration that resulted in a UNC-Chapel Hill satellite pharmacy education program. Building new partnerships with local governments, scientific agencies and non-profit organizations have resulted in agreements with Mission Hospital Systems, the City of Asheville, the Renaissance Computing Institute and others for enhanced learning and research opportunities for students and faculty.This emphasis on collaboration, one of Chancellor Ponder’s hallmark traits, also led to the cultivation, with other campus and community leaders, of some of the largest multi-million donations in the university’s history. Chancellor Ponder oversaw the largest building projects in UNC Asheville’s history, including New Hall classroom building; Sam Millar Facilities Management Complex; Zeis Science and Multimedia Building; and the Wilma M. Sherrill Center, which houses the North Carolina Center for Health & Wellness and the Kimmel Arena. In each of these projects, environmental sustainability has been a key feature, as dictated by the university’s strategic plan. These green efforts – combined with countless others across campus – have earned the university a host of awards, including repeated recognition as one of the lowest energy consuming agencies in the state. A strong advocate for community service, Dr. Ponder is a member of the Mission Hospitals Audit Committee, the Asheville Community and Economic Development Alliance, the Children’s Welfare League and the WNC Community Foundation’s Women for Women. She also is a board member for the non-profit Kendal Corporation. Before becoming Chancellor at UNC Asheville, Dr. Ponder served for 10 years as president of Colby-Sawyer College, a private liberal arts college in New Hampshire. Prior to that appointment, she held teaching and administrative posts at Elon College (now Elon University), Guilford College and Kenyon College. Chancellor Ponder, who holds a doctorate in English from UNC-Chapel Hill, is a nationally known expert on institutional effectiveness, strategic planning, and fundraising and resource development. She has been a frequent faculty member of Harvard University’s Institutes for Higher Education and wrote the chapter on strategic planning in the American Council on Education’s book “Leading America’s Branch Campuses.” A native of Asheville, Chancellor Ponder is the daughter of the late Eleanor and Herschel Ponder, both of whom trace their Asheville family roots to the 1780s. She is married to award-winning writer and publisher Christopher Brookhouse. 44

JANET R. CONE DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS • SENIOR ADMINISTRATOR FOR UNIVERSITY ENTERPRISES Janet R. Cone is in her ninth year as Director of Athletics at UNC Asheville. She also serves the school as Senior Administrator for University Enterprises. This past year was highlighted by the men’s basketball team’s winning the Big South Conference championship for the second year in a row. The Bulldogs set a school record for conference and overall wins. Asheville advanced to the NCAA Tournament where it nearly pulled off one of the greatest upsets in NCAA history when the 16th-seeded Bulldogs lost a close game to top-seeded Syracuse. In addition, the school successfully hosted the Big South Conference men’s basketball tournament with a national television audience and sellout crowd watching the championship game in the school’s brand-new Kimmel Arena. Cone oversaw the successful opening of the Wilma Sherrill Center which houses the Kimmel Arena. She worked to bring the top-ranked UNC Chapel Hill men’s basketball team to open Kimmel against the Bulldogs in a game that was nationally televised. That game was also sold out. The Sherrill Center had more than 100,000 visitors the past year as its hosted various events from concerts to graduation.

Cone guided the athletic department through a successful certification process by the NCAA. In addition, she brought back women’s swimming as a varsity sport for the first time in more than 35 years. In the 2010-11 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. Three years ago, Chancellor Anne Ponder appointed Cone to the position of Senior Administrator for University Enterprises. In this position, Cone oversees the Sherrill Center, manages specific community relationships and serves as a member of UNC Asheville’s major gifts team. She is a member of the Chancellor’s Senior Staff.

Other successes included the men’s tennis team’s finishing in second place in the Big South Conference, its highest league finish ever, the volleyball team’s advancing to the semifinals of the Big South Tournament for the eighth time in the last nine years, and the women’s tennis, men’s tennis and women’s track and field teams being honored for their work in the classroom.

In 2009, Cone helped to create the Asheville Buncombe Regional Sports Commission to bring athletic events to the Asheville area. Her leadership helped secure the return of the Southern Conference men’s and women’s basketball tournament to Asheville in March 2012. Student-Athletes have excelled in the classroom under Cone’s leadership. In 2004, she created the Athletic Director’s 3.0 + Club which recognizes student-athletes who make a 3.0 or better grade point average each semester. More than 900 student-athletes have made the club during Cone’s nine years, and in 2009-10, a record number of student-athletes earned that distinction. During that same time period, more than 800 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 earned this impressive academic distinction. Cone has overseen construction projects that have dramatically improved the facilities in which UNC Asheville’s Bulldog student-athletes compete and train. (1) The Wilma Sherrill Center/Kimmel Arena was completed in the spring of 2011. Funded partly through a $35 million state appropriation, Cone helped raise more than $ 7 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, attract major speakers and performances, and have a new home for the men’s and women’s basketball teams. (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 were completed in the fall of 2009.The facility has been the home of Bulldog men’s and women’s tennis for the past three seasons, and this past spring hosted the Big South Conference men’s and women’s tennis championships 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.

/// UNC ASHEVILLE BULLDOGS ///

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. 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 benefit from each and every day.” In 2006-07, three different UNC Asheville teams won Big South Conference championships and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. In May 2006, the baseball team completed an amazing run with its first ever championship and a trip to Clemson for the NCAA Regional. In the fall of 2006, the women’s soccer team became the first women’s team in school history to qualify for the NCAA Tournament when the Bulldogs won the league title and earned a spot against topseed UNC Chapel Hill in the College Cup. In March 2007, the UNC Asheville women’s basketball team won its first ever Big South Conference championship. Asheville advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time where it took on Final Four-bound LSU. The South Carolina native has promulgated a significant increase in corporate sponsorships and Bulldog Athletic Association donations, critical to an organization that is not allowed to receive state funds of any kind. She has also overseen a new partnership with the Asheville City and Buncombe County Parks and Recreation Departments, an improved Athletics website, and the implementation of internet broadcasts and video-streaming for six different sports. Cone has been tapped by the NCAA and the Big South Conference to serve on several key committees. In the Big South, she is on the committees for Budget, Compliance, Ad Hoc Committee on Publicity and Promotions, Baseball, Men’s and Women’s Basketball and Men’s Soccer and Tennis. In the spring of 2006, Cone was named to the NCAA Women’s Basketball Issues Committee. In September of 2008, she began a four-year term on the NCAA Division I Leadership Council. In July 2006, the Summerville, S.C. native was one of just 14 female athletic administrators to be picked by the NCAA/NACWAA to attend The Institute of Athletics Executives in Denver. In September 2008, she began a four-year term on the NCAA Division I Leadership Council. Other highlights of Cone’s tenure include the development of a new Athletics Logo and a partnership with the Asheville City and Buncombe County Parks and Recreation Departments. In the spring of 2006, she was named as an Outstanding Executive Manager by the Asheville-Buncombe Excellence in Public Service.

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.

/// UNC ASHEVILLE BULLDOGS ///

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.

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.
