X Bulldogs Looking To Build On Strong Spring The UNC Asheville men’s soccer team hopes to build on a good spring en route to a successful season in 2013. A young Bulldog team struggled in 2012 and finished with a 1-15-1 overall record. Fourth-year coach Matt Kern is determined to improve on that mark in 2013, and he believes this team can make major strides. “We were very young last season and it showed throughout the year,” admitted Kern. “I thought we played some good soccer against a tough schedule both in non-conference play and in the Big South. We lost seven one-goal matches that if we could have had a few of those go our way may have changed the way the season progressed.” Kern believes a strong spring campaign by the Bulldogs is going to carry over to this fall. “We had a terrific spring both on and off the field,” explained Kern. “Our guys did a great job developing, and our morale was much better.

GOALKEEPER The Bulldogs should be in good shape in goal this season with Dan Jackson and Zak Davis returning. Jackson was Asheville’s stating goalkeeper in 2012. He played in 15 matches and earned the start 14 times. The sophomore made 87 saves and kept Asheville in a lot of matches. “Dan is a very good shot-blocker and did a solid job last year,” declared Kern. “He works hard and should be even better this season.” Davis, a sophomore who transferred from Colgate, earned some playing time in 2012. He played in three matches and had one start. Davis played the second half and overtime in the Bulldogs’ final match of the season when they tied Liberty 0-0 on the road. “Zak had a super spring,” stated Kern. “He’s very athletic and grew technically with his feet in the spring season. “We’ll be using both Dan and Zak this year and believe that both will be capable of getting the job done when called upon,” Kern added. DEFENSE The Bulldogs have experience and depth returning in the back in 2013. Sophomore Andrew Sotak played primarily in midfield in 2012 but has been moved to right back.

We went 5-2 in the spring with some good wins over some solid programs. We’re confident that’s going to carry over to this year.”

Dan Jackson

“Andrew had an excellent freshman year,” admitted Kern. “We had to use him at midfield last season but we moved him to right back in the spring, and we believe he’ll be very effective there this year.”


“Jack is a passionate and competitive player who has size that will help us when he’s on the field,” pointed out Kern. “We’re looking at him as a central midfielder.” Freshman Devin Francis is from New Orleans and enjoyed an excellent prep and club career. He could be backing up Iiames. “The thing we like about Devin is that he’s a very good one-on-one defender,” explained Kern. “He has some international experience with a good work rate.” MIDFIELD Asheville has some real experience coming back in the midfield in 2013. Start with senior tri-captain Rob May. The Asheville native transferred to Asheville from Charlotte last year but was never really healthy. He played in 13 matches, earned 11 starts and scored a goal. “Rob fought through injuries last year but is healthy and ready to go,” commented Kern. “He’s one of our main cogs. Rob gives us toughness and leadership. He had a terrific spring, and we believe that he and Mick Giordano will work well together.”

Paul Egle Returning from an injury this season is red-shirt sophomore tricaptain A.J. Iiames. He was a starter for the Bulldogs in the back in 2011, and he’ll be Asheville’s starter at left back this year. “We really missed A.J. last year and are glad to have him back,” declared Kern. “He’s a dynamic attacking player who had a terrific spring.” Junior Paul Egle is slated to start for the Dogs in the center back spot. “Paul is one of the top passers in the Big South and one of the best I’ve ever coached,” stated Kern. “He’ll do a great job for us here this season.”

Giordano is a fifth-year senior who also transferred to Asheville last year as he played in 10 matches with six starts. “We look for Mick to be a central midfielder. He’s another player who had a great spring,” said Kern. “He’s really maturing as a player, and we like what he and Rob (May) could do for us this year.” Sophomore Stabler Cochrane is slated to be Asheville’s starter at the attacking midfielder spot. Cochrane scored a goal and added an assist in 15 matches played in 2012. “Stabler has really gotten stronger and shown great one-on-one ability,” explained Kern. “He has an attacker mentality and will be a real plus going forward this year.” Junior Joey Cutting will compete for playing time as a central midfielder.

Sophomore Cole Schwietering started last season as a central defender and played quite well.

“Joey is a tremendous leader and hard worker,” said Kern. “He’ll give us some depth as a central midfielder.”

“We were really pleased with Cole’s play last year,” said Kern. “He came in as a freshman and performed right from the start. With his height (6-3), Cole’s very tough to stop in the air.”

Senior Hans Lohmeyer scored a goal last year and hopes to have more in 2013.

“We’re pleased that Hans made a real commitment in the weight Asheville’s depth in the back is all freshmen. Kern and his staff have room this past off-season and has gotten much stronger,” said Kern. brought a talented recruiting class into the program, especially defenders. “He’s good in the air and is a tough defender.” Backing up Sotak will be Brian Wendelgass from Cary, N.C. “Brian should push for playing time. He comes from a great academy team and has some experience,” stated Kern. “I think we’ll see him playing significant minutes as a freshman.” Local product Cy Gourlay comes from nearby Carolina Day in Asheville. He could play as either a center or right back.


Junior Patrick Phillip scored his two goals in the first match of the year in 2012 against Brevard. “Patrick provided some high-quality minutes off the bench last season with his athletic ability,” stated Kern. “He has the ability to score some goals.” FORWARDS

“We’re happy to have Cy in the program,” admitted Kern. “He’s a composed and reliable player who has versatility that we like.”

Up front, the Bulldogs have an interesting mixture of experience and youth.

Jack Huber, a 6-4 rookie from Wake Forest, N.C., can play either as a defender or in midfield.

Senior tri-captain Bobby Castro, who made a name for himself in the classroom last year by being named an Academic All-Region performer, will move from the back to up front in 2013.

“People are really going to enjoy watching Bobby play up front,” declared Kern. “He’s a versatile player who can play anywhere on the field. Bobby is a real leader for our program.” Senior Kenneth Lingerfelt tallied two goals last season and had five points. The Bulldogs wouldn’t mind seeing even more this year. “We look for a breakthrough year for Kenny in scoring,” said Kern. “He’s tough to defend and is extremely dangerous when facing a defender. I believe Kenny could have a big year both scoring goals and handing out assists.” Sophomore Emil Gonzalves played as a central midfielder as a freshman but will be moved up front this year. He scored a goal in 14 matches played with 11 starts in 2012. “Emil works hard and will be an integral part of our attacking philosophy this season,” stated Kern. “He’s dynamic on the ball and just makes things happen.” Junior Quentin Reynolds earned an assist last season in 15 games played. “Quentin is a real threat when he gets behind the defense,” commented Kern. “He’ll provide valuable depth up front.” Freshman Grady Bradshaw is one of two rookies on this year’s club from nearby Carolina Day in Asheville. Kern is excited to have him on the roster.

Kenneth Lingerfelt “I believe Grady is going to surprise a lot of people in the Big South this year,” admitted Kern. “He’s very competitive and hard-working. Grady has the skills to make an impact right away.” Texas native Tevin Beckwith is a freshman from Little Elm who just needs experience. “What’s great about Tevin is how fast he is. He’s an extremely hard worker and not afraid to play defense,” stated Kern. “He just needs to get some experience in the college game.” OVERALL COMMENTS “We want to focus on our non-conference record at first and try to get to a .500 record and then do the same in the Big South. Our league is very good. It sent two teams to the NCAA Tournament and both won their matches in the tourney. We’ll need to be ready to play every time we go out on the field. “We’ve got goals that we’re going to review each week and just try and get better each and every day in practice and with each match. As I said earlier, I was really pleased with the spring season we had and looking for that to carry over into the fall. We have a nice mix of all of our classes and have some great leadership. We’re excited and can’t wait to get started.”

Matt Kern Fourth Year • Hartwick, 1988 Matt Kern, a former assistant coach for the UNC Asheville men’s and women’s soccer programs, is in his fourth year as head coach of the Bulldog men’s program. 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 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. 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. 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. His wife Chapman is the Director of Athletics at Asheville School. They have two children, Brooks (17) and Emerson (13).






Jeremy Jordan First Year • Mars Hill, 2000 Former Mars Hill standout Jeremy “Moe” Jordan begins his first season as an assistant coach with the UNC Asheville men’s soccer program. “I am very excited to welcome Jeremy “Moe” Jordan as our new assistant coach at UNC Asheville,” stated Bulldog head coach Matt Kern. “I have known Moe for eight years, and I have a lot of respect for his tactical knowledge, coaching ability, and personal values. Moe, in addition to his wife, Jennifer, and their son, Jacob, will be a great addition to our team, program and UNC Asheville soccer family.” Jordan enjoyed a great career as a midfielder at Mars Hill from 1996-99. He was inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame in 2011. Jordan was a four-team All-Conference selection. He holds the school record for assists in a season with 20 in 1996. Jordan is second all-time in the South Atlantic Conference for single season assists (20) and career assists with 51. He played in 84 matches for the Lions and recorded 27 career goals and 105 career points. Jordan was a member of the 1997 SAC Tournament Championship Team, 1998 SAC Regular Season Championship Team and the 1998 SAC Tournament Championship Team. He was a three-time SAC All-Tournament selection (1996, 1997 & 1998) and served as team captain in 1999. Jordan began his coaching career as a Graduate Assistant for Mars Hill in the 2000 season. He coached in the Atlanta area before moving to Asheville in 2006. Jordan has been working with the Highlands Football Club teams for the past seven years. “I’m really excited about coming to UNC Asheville and working with Matt,” declared Jordan. “It’s nice to be coaching at a collegiate level, and I’m looking forward to coaching some players that I worked with at HFC.”






Shane Weems Third Year • College of Charleston, 1994 Shane Weems, the Director of Coaching for Asheville-Buncombe Recreation Soccer Association, enters his third season as a volunteer assistant coach with Matt Kern and the Bulldogs’ men’s soccer program. Weems, a former College of Charleston team captain, started four years for the Cougars and earned All-Trans-Atlantic Conference honors during his junior and senior campaigns. After finishing his collegiate career, Weems played professionally for the Charleston Battery and the Hampton Roads Mariners before suffering a career-ending injury. The Battery reached the Sizzling Nine Championships in 1994, his first season with the club. He started his coaching career with the Hungryneck Soccer club while also working with the Mount Pleasant Youth Soccer Association, all while attending CofC. Weems came to Asheville in 1998 and began coaching with the Highland Football Club (HFC). In 2005, the HFC and ABYSA merged and Weems was named to his current position with the association. Currently he oversees the recreation soccer program, coaches competitive level youth teams in various age groups and works with the academy program.

Wiley Cash ’04

Jennifer Mayer ’04

Wasim Al-Abed ’01

He majored in literature, but it was his history classes and the magic of the mountains of nearby Madison County that inspired Wiley Cash’s first novel, “A Land More Kind Than Home.”

As a businessperson, she’s a local leader. As a philanthropist, she is a force of nature. And Jennifer Mayer’s achievements are far more inspiring when you know her backstory.

Degrees from UNC Asheville have launched thousands of successful careers, like that of Wasim Al-Abed, sales manager for FLS Energy of Asheville, one of the nation’s fastestgrowing solar energy firms.

Cash’s novel debuted on the New York Times Best Seller list last year and promptly won praise by reviewers in USA Today, Vanity Fair and O Magazine. “My Appalachian history professor at UNC Asheville, Dan Pierce, made the mountains come alive for me, their history, their people, culture and mystery.”

By the age of 16, Mayer already had lived a hard life. She was waitressing double shifts to support herself, and she could only read at the secondgrade level. But at the urging of a close friend, she enrolled in a literacy program and eventually earned a high school GED. Later, Mayer enrolled at UNC Asheville where she pursued a degree in psychology. Today, she is the owner and CEO of Charlotte Street Computers, one of Asheville’s busiest independent computer shops.

This rapidly evolving industry needs employees who can think critically and solve problems that have never been encountered before. So when FLS Energy needed a team leader who could make the links between economics, science, policy and environmental impact, they turned to this UNC Asheville business and marketing graduate. That’s the power of the liberal arts. “At UNC Asheville,” says Al-Abed, “I learned with students whose creativity and passion were out of this world.”

fAll About UNC Asheville Athletics Competitive Spirit Men’s BasketballfThe best program in the Big South Conference over the past six seasons. Asheville has gone to post-season play three times during that period. The Bulldogs have gone to the NIT (2008) once and twice gone to the NCAA Tournament (2011, 2012). Asheville’s overall record during that time is 113-82 (.579). Our record inside the Big South Conference is 68-34 (.667). We own wins over four BCS schools—South Carolina, Auburn, Utah and St. John’s in the last six years. The men’s basketball program has a legacy of strong coaches including Bob Hartman, Jerry Green, Don Doucette, Randy Wiel and Eddie Biedenbach who led the Bulldogs to four Big South Conference Championship Titles.

VolleyballfOne of the most consistent programs in the Big South over the last 11 years. From 2002 through last year, Asheville has posted eight winning seasons and never finished lower than sixth place in the Big South Conference during that period. We have two Big South regularseason championships and been to the league title game three times. The overall record during the past 11 seasons is 194-142 (.577). In league play, the record is 104-61 (.631). Coach Fredrico Santos leads the team. A UNC Asheville graduate, Santos has extensive international coaching experience with stops in Brazil, Iceland, Poland and Switzerland before returning home to his alma mater.

Women’s SoccerfAnother consistent program over the years. From 1995 through last season, our women’s soccer program has won two Big South Conference championships (1995 & 2006), two regular-season


championships (2004 & 2005) and advanced to the league championship game seven different times (1995, 1996, 1998, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006). This season team won three of its final four matches and had two players recognized by the National Soccer Coaches Association for their work in the classroom. The team is led by Michelle Demko, an outstanding coach, who was selected in the spring of 2012 to help train the U.S. Under-20 Women’s National team and as an assistant coach for the Under-23 Women’s National Team.

Men’s TennisfThe Bulldog men’s tennis program has enjoyed its best success in more than a decade the past two seasons. Last season we finished in second place in the Big South, the highest regular-season finish the Bulldogs have ever had. On the academic side, they have been recognized by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association three times in the last four years. Under the direction of Coach Lise Gregory and former LSU standout Tom Hand, we have recorded winning seasons the past two years and will be competing for a Big South Conference championship this year

Women’s TennisfOur women’s tennis team will enjoy its third winning season in the last five years this season. Head Coach Lise Gregory is one of the top coaches in the country and has rebuilt the program two different times. Our team this season is made up of sophomores and freshmen and won more matches than last season at the half-way point of the year. On the academic side, this program has been recognized for its work in the classroom by the ITA for five consecutive years.

fAll About UNC Asheville Athletics Competitive Spirit Men’s & Women’s Cross CountryfBoth cross country programs have been steadily improving under the direction of Western Carolina graduate Jesse Norman. This past year had both teams finishing in fifth place in the 12-team Big South Conference. It marked the best finish for both squads in eight years.

Track and FieldfBoth programs have had some great individual performers over the past three years and are slowly building solid programs. Jesse Norman is the coach for these programs as well. Natalie Pearson went to the NCAA Outdoor Championships in 2010 and 2011 in the 200 meters and earned Honorable Mention AllAmerican honors. She just missed qualifying for the Great Britain Olympic team last summer. This past year saw Milan Ristic qualify for the NCAA Indoor Track Championships in the hurdles and finished 13th overall. Coach Jesse Norman’s excellent leadership led him to be named Big South Coach of the year in 2011.

BaseballfUNC Asheville Bulldogs Baseball has improved steadily under the leadership of head coach Tom Smith. Last year, we won 25 games and finished in fourth place in the Big South Conference after being a preseason pick to finish in last place. Highlights included winning a series at College of Charleston late in the season and 12 conference victories. We presently have one player in the major leagues in Ty Wigginton and one who went to spring training with the Florida Marlins in Kevin Mattison. We have two other players – Ryan Dull and Justin Schumer – who are in the minor leagues.

Women’s BasketballfWe are going through a rebuilding phase after winning the Big South Championship in 2007. We have hired former Florida assistant and Waynesville native Brenda Mock Kirkpatrick as our head coach. She inherited a tough situation this past year and then had five potential starters suffer season-ending injuries. However, our team battled hard to the end without anyone quitting the team. We believe our program is in great shape and will be turning the corner immediately as she and her staff signed four excellent recruits in the fall.

Women’s SwimmingfWe brought women’s swimming back after having a co-ed program in the mid-70s. We are members of the Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association. In our first year with just eight swimmers, we finished in ninth place at the championship meet as we finished in front of four others teams with a full roster. In the fall semester, the team was honored by College Swim Coaches Association of America for a 3.22 GPA. Former College of Charleston MVP Elizabeth Lykins leads the team.

Men’s SoccerfWe expect to be better in men’s soccer this fall than we have been the past few years. They have certainly done the work in the classroom.

UNC ASHEVILLE CHANCELLOR - DR. ANNE PONDER Dr. Anne Ponder became the sixth Chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Asheville in October 2005 after serving for 10 years as president of Colby-Sawyer College in New London, N.H. A nationally known expert on strategic planning, she began her UNC Asheville tenure by leading a campus-wide collaboration to create a dynamic and viable strategic plan and revised mission statement; she then established a dashboard that measures UNC Asheville’s progress toward the strategic plan goals, with a continued emphasis on quality and sustainability. With this focus, UNC Asheville has made major strides as a national leader in the liberal arts and has become one of the top choices for students seeking a rigorous and multi-faceted educational experience.

American Council on Education’s book Leading America’s Branch Campuses.

During Chancellor Ponder’s tenure, the university was chosen as the first national headquarters for the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges. Several new majors from anthropology to religious studies, art history to jazz and contemporary music have been added to the curriculum.The academic profile and diversity of the student body, as well as the proportion of students living on campus, increased to their highest levels during this time. The university received its 10-year re-affirmation of accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in 2012 with no major findings, one recommendation, and high praise from the assessment committee.

In 2011, UNC Asheville celebrated the dedication of the Wilma M. Sherrill Center, which houses academic and outreach programs focused on disease prevention and healthy living, as well as the 3,800-seat Kimmel Arena.This $41 million project was funded through a $35-million state appropriation in 2004 and an additional $6 million in private gifts and grants. It is the largest construction project ever undertaken at UNC Asheville.

A hallmark of Chancellor Ponder’s tenure at UNC Asheville is her commitment to strengthening the university’s outreach and partnerships with Western North Carolina communities and businesses, as well as with sister UNC institutions. She has encouraged innovative collaboration that resulted in a UNC-Chapel Hill Eshelman School of Pharmacy satellite program in Asheville. New partnerships with local governments, scientific agencies and nonprofit organizations have resulted in agreements with Mission Health System, the City of Asheville, the Renaissance Computing Institute and others for enhanced learning and research opportunities for students and faculty. The university is a founding member of the AshevilleBuncombe Regional Sports Commission, a major contributor to the region’s economic development. This emphasis on collaboration also led to the cultivation, with other campus and community leaders, of some of the largest multi-million dollar donations in the university’s history. An Economic Impact Study completed for 2012 revealed that UNC Asheville’s economic impact on the region was $268 million.

Chancellor Ponder has overseen the largest building program in UNC Asheville’s history – most recently Overlook Hall, home to more than 300 students. The new residence hall boosts the number of students living on campus from 35 percent to more than 40 percent and is one of the “greenest” buildings on campus with cutting-edge sustainability features including geothermal heating and cooling. Other major building projects have included the 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 Kimmel Arena. Major renovations have been made to Rhoades Hall and several residence halls. These efforts, combined with countless others across campus, have earned the university repeated recognition as a model of sustainability among UNC institutions and across the state. In 2010, the university opened the Janice W. Brumit Pisgah House, which serves as a location for university-sponsored events, meetings receptions and dinners, and also is the Chancellor’s residence. The $2.9-million multi-purpose building, required of all UNC campuses, was funded by private donations.

The university also expanded its campus boundaries under Chancellor Ponder’s leadership, purchasing several nearby properties including the 10-acre Rhoades property in 2008, which was the first major gift/ purchase of property for the campus since moving to its current location in 1961. The property now hosts a community garden and residence for the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, both of which are favorite gathering places for students. Other acquisitions have included a 10-acre parcel adjacent to campus on Broadway Avenue which is being developed as a part of Asheville’s greenway to link campus and downtown. In 2013, UNC Asheville acquired adjacent acreage and the health facility formerly owned by MAHEC on W.T.Weaver Boulevard, which will house an expanded Student Health and Counseling Center and the offices for University Advancement and Alumni Relations. Chancellor Ponder earned her bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She was the first woman and first pre-tenure professor at Elon University to receive the Daniels-Danieley Award for Excellence in Teaching. During her nine years at Elon, she taught English and communications. She then held faculty and administrative posts at Guilford College in North Carolina, where she was an associate professor of English and interdisciplinary studies and served as associate academic dean. In her next appointment at Kenyon College in Ohio, she served as professor of English and drama, academic dean, and vice president for information technology. In 1995, she was selected to become president at Colby-Sawyer College, a private liberal arts college in New Hampshire.

Chancellor Ponder is a national leader in higher education garnering accolades for her athletic administration and academic leadership as well. In 2013, she received the inaugural Van Ummersen Presidential Leadership Award from the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators, in recognition of her demonstrated leadership and promotion of women’s opportunities in athletics administration and In addition to serving UNC Asheville, Chancellor Ponder is a memcoaching.
