Stewart formed and coached the school’s first women’s team in 1998. He created and served as host for the Lenoir-Rhyne/Myrtle Beach Intercollegiate, as well as the Carter Invitational. Seven women’s golfers were named all-conference under Stewart, including two All-Americans, two SAC Players of the Year and one Freshmen of the Year.

2006 UNCG Menis Golf: Coaching Staff

The Williamsburg, VA, native was a four-year letterwinner at Lenoir-Rhyne from 199094. He earned first team All-South Atlantic Conference honors as a senior and started every tournament of his career for the Bears. He graduated in 1994 with a bachelor of arts degree in sports management. In the summer of 2002, Stewart shot a two-round total of 139 in the US Amateur Public Links Qualifier at Tanglewood to finish third in the field of 133. He advanced to and participated in the 2002 US Amateur Public Links in Detroit, Michigan. In 2004, Stewart fired a two-under 70 at the Independence Golf Club outside Richmond, VA to qualify for the US Mid-Amateur. Terrance Stewart enters his sixth season as the head men’s golf coach at UNC Greensboro. Stewart was named to his post on August 15, 2001.

Stewart is married, to the former Yvonne Miller of Lenoir, NC. The couple resides in Greensboro and have one son, Spencer.

In his fifth season at UNCG, Stewart helped the Spartans to seven top-10 finishes including three top-five finishes in 2005-06. UNCG placed seventh at the Southern Conference Championships and were led by sophomore Nathan Stamey’s fourth place finish, which earned him second team all-conference honors. The Spartans captured a season best fourth place finish at the Orange County National led by Stamey and senior Jake Lowder, who both finished in the top 20. Stewart also guided his Spartans to a pair of fifth place finishes at the Tunica National Intercollegiate and the Pinehurst Intercollegiate. In 2004-05, UNCG placed fourth at the SoCon Championships, while junior Jake Lowder and sophomore J.D. Bass were each named to the SoCon all-conference team for their efforts during the course of the season. Led by freshman Nathan Stamey’s first place finish in the opening match of the season, the Spartans took home second place honors at the Mid Pines Intercollegiate. In a second tourney hosted by UNCG, the Spartans picked up a third place finish at the Forest Oaks Intercollegiate in the final tournament of the regular season. Sandwiched in between, Stewart watched as the Spartans posted top five finishes, including a second place finish at the 49er Collegiate Classic, in five of their other seven regular season tournaments. The 2003-04 campaign was a breakthrough season as the Spartans posted a tie for second at the SoCon Championships, which represented the best finish in school history. In March of 2004, the Spartans claimed top honors at the Winthrop-Waterford Invitational in Rock Hill, SC. The tournament crown for the Spartans was their first since the 1999-2000 season when UNCG took top honors at the Southern California Intercollegiate. Andy Bare and J.D. Bass each took home medalist honors in two tournaments. Bare finished the season with a 73.68 scoring average, third-best in the SoCon and was named first team All-SoCon for the second consecutive season. Nick Baker, who finished second on the team with a 73.71 stroke average, was named second team All-SoCon. In his second season, Stewart guided the Spartan squad to a fifth place finish in the 2003 SoCon Championship, at the time, the program’s best in its six year history in the Southern Conference. In his first season at UNCG, Stewart led a very young Spartan squad to a seventh place finish at the 2002 SoCon Tournament. The Spartans’ top three performers were all freshmen. Stewart came to UNCG after a five-year stint at his alma mater, Lenoir-Rhyne College. Stewart served as head coach for both the men’s and women’s golf teams. In that time, Stewart was named the 2001 South Atlantic Conference Women’s Coach of the Year and the 1999 South Atlantic Men’s Coach of the Year. He led the Bears women’s squad to the 2000 and 2001 NCAA Division II National Championships. Stewart led the men’s team to the 1999, 2000 and 2001 Catawba Valley/LenoirRhyne Cup. He also created the Billy Joe Patton Intercollegiate that began in 1997, as well as the Bay Medical Intercollegiate that began in 2000. In his five years at Lenoir-Rhyne, four players were named all-conference.

Mid Pines Winners Bridgestone Winners Derek Fathauer Louisville 2005 Bridgestone Champion

UNCG hosted the second annual Bridgestone Golf Intercollegiate at Forest Oaks Country Club on April 3 and 4, 2006 in Greensboro, NC. The famed Forest Oaks course has been home to the PGA’s Chrysler Classic of Greensboro since 1977. The par 72, 7,311-yard layout was designed by noted golf course architect Ellis Maples, a protege of the legendary Donald Ross, in the 1960’s. PGA Tour star Davis Love III recently headed up a redesign that has earned praise from his peers and club’s membership and guests. The Bridgestone will not be played in the 2006-07 season but will return in the fall of 2007.

MEMBERSHIP HISTORY The Southern Conference was formed on February 25, 1921 at a meeting in Atlanta, GA. Fourteen institutions from the 30-member Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA) reorganized as the Southern Conference. Those charter members included Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi State, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Washington & Lee. Athletic competition began in the fall of 1921. In 1922, six more schools - Florida, Louisiana State, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tulane and Vanderbilt - joined the fold. A year later, the University of the South joined the ranks. Virginia Military Institute became a member in 1925 and Duke University came into the fold in 1929. Since then, conference membership has experienced a series of membership changes with 42 institutions having been affiliated with the league. The league has undergone two major transitions during its history. The first occurred in December 1932 when the Southeastern Conference was formed out of the 23school Southern Conference. The league’s 13 members west and south of the Appalachian Mountains reorganized to help reduce the extensive travel demands that were present in the league at the time. In 1936, the Southern Conference invited The Citadel, William & Mary, Davidson, Furman, Richmond and Wake Forest to join the membership. The second major shift happened in 1953 when Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest officially withdrew from the league to form the Atlantic Coast Conference. This change was brought about due to the desire of many of those schools to schedule a greater number of regular season basketball games against their local rivals. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that spans four Southeastern states. Current league members are Appalachian State, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Chattanooga, Western Carolina and Wofford. The most recent addition, Elon University, joined the Southern Conference on July 1, 2003. LEADERSHIP The start of the 2006 football campaign sees John Iamarino enter his first football season as the Southern Conference’s commissioner. Iamarino, who officially became the SoCon commissioner on January 2, 2006, previously served as the commissioner of the

Northeast Conference for nine seasons. In his nine years with the Somerset, NJ-based NEC, Iamarino promoted the conference through an ambitious agenda designed to improve the quality of competition, upgrade compliance-related matters and generally increase the marketing and brand awareness of the conference and its member institutions. To improve the 21 championship NEC sports for the more than 2,200 student-athletes who compete, Iamarino helped secure professional facilities to accommodate baseball, indoor track & field, tennis and women’s swimming championships. Tournament gifts, awards, trophies and event programs were all systematically upgraded. Iamarino replaced Danny Morrison who served as commissioner from November 13, 2001 until June 15, 2005. Morrison left the league to become the director of athletics at Texas Christian University. The Southern Conference named its first commissioner in December 1950. Duke head football coach Wallace Wade made the transition from Blue Devil football coach to athletics administration as the first person at the helm of the conference. Lloyd Jordan replaced Wade as the commissioner in 1960 and served a 14-year term until Ken Germann became the league head in 1974. Germann was the commissioner for 13 years and orchestrated the league’s expansion to include women’s athletics. He was succeeded by Dave Hart in 1987 who spearheaded the transfer of the league office from Charlotte, NC to Asheville, NC. Wright Waters succeeded Hart upon his retirement in 1991. Under Waters’ leadership, the Southern Conference expanded to 12 members, added three women’s sports and posted record revenue from the basketball Tournament. Waters, who is currently the commissioner of the Sun Belt Conference, was followed by Alfred B. White in 1998. White, a veteran member of the NCAA office, introduced the current SoCon logo and elevated the conference’s commitment to marketing and development of corporate partners. He became the president of the Asheville franchise of the National Basketball Development League in 2001. CHAMPIONSHIPS HISTORY The first Southern Conference Championship was the league basketball tournament held in Atlanta in 1922. The North Carolina Tar Heels won the tournament to become the first recognized league champion in any sport. The Southern Conference Tournament remains the oldest of its kind in college basketball. In May of 1923, the league held its first outdoor track and field championship in Montgomery, AL. Mississippi A&M (now Mississippi State) captured six individual titles on its way to winning the team championship. Two other sports - cross country and tennis - held their first championships during the 1920s. North Carolina won the initial cross country team championship in 1926 in Athens, Ga. Tennis crowned its first singles and doubles champions in New Orleans, La. in 1928. Donald Cram of Vanderbilt was the league’s first singles champion, while Leonard Chamberlin and Maurie Bayon of Tulane won the doubles title. The 1930s saw four more sports - wrestling, indoor track and field, swimming and golf - celebrate their first conference championships. VMI played host to and won the first league wrestling team championship in 1930. Washington & Lee won the first indoor track team championship, which also took place in 1930 and was held at Chapel Hill, NC. The University of Virginia hosted and won the first league swimming championship in 1933, while Duke captured the first conference golf team title at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, NC later that same year. Baseball was introduced as a Southern Conference sport in 1947 as Clemson captured the league championship that year. Rifle held its first conference championship in 1956, while soccer was the most recently added men’s sport in 1967. The Southern Conference began sponsoring women’s sports during the 1983-84 season. That year, volleyball, basketball and tennis championships were held in the league. Cross country joined the mix in 1985 and the league began holding indoor and outdoor track championships in 1988. Most recently, the conference instituted golf and softball championships in the spring of 1994 and added soccer in the fall of 1994.

The Southern Conference currently declares champions in 10 men’s sports - football, soccer, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, wrestling, baseball, tennis and golf - and nine women’s sports - soccer, volleyball, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, tennis, golf and softball. COACHES AND ADMINISTRATORS The Southern Conference has also been a breeding ground for some of college athletics’ most recognized coaches and administrators. Legendary basketball coaches Adolph Rupp of Kentucky and Everett Case of North Carolina State both worked the sidelines in the Southern Conference. Rupp guided the Wildcats to a 30-5 mark during the 1931 and 1932 seasons. Yet, for all his coaching accomplishments, Rupp never led Kentucky to a Southern Conference tournament championship. Case mentored the Wolfpack to six consecutive Southern Conference Tournament championships from 1947 through 1952. In North Carolina State’s final season in the league, the Wolfpack won the regular season title but fell in the tournament championship game to Wake Forest, 71-70. Despite coaching in the conference for just seven seasons, Case is the ninth winningest coach in league history and averaged 26.7 wins per year during his tenure, the best mark in conference history. Case was named Southern Conference Coach-of-the-Year three times. Lefty Driesell, most recently the head coach at Georgia State, coached Davidson to three Southern Conference Tournament championships in 1966, 1968 and 1969. Driesell also won the league’s Coach-ofthe-Year award four straight times from 1963 through 1966. Former Georgia Tech coach Bobby Cremins earned league Coach-of-the-Year honors three times in the late ’70s and early ’80s while at Appalachian State. Cremins returned to the league in July 2006 when he was named head coach at College of Charleston. Terry Holland saw his basketball coaching career take off at Davidson when he returned to his alma mater in 1970. Holland was honored as the Southern Conference Coach-of-the-Year for three consecutive seasons from 1970-72 and led the Wildcats to the conference tournament title and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 1970. Holland later led Virginia to the Final Four in 1984. After his coaching career concluded, Holland returned to the Southern Conference as the athletic director at Davidson from 1990-1995 before accepting the same position at Virginia. J. Dallas Shirley, a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, spent 21 years as the assistant to the commissioner and supervisor of officials in the Southern Conference. Shirley worked with the conference from 1967 until 1988 under three commissioners: Lloyd P. Jordan, Kenneth G. Germann, and David R. Hart. Shirley was a basketball official in the Southern Conference for 30 years and officiated over 2,000 career games in various leagues. He also served as president of the International Association Basketball Officials and the United States Olympic Basketball Committee. Even the legendary Paul “Bear” Bryant got his coaching start in the Southern Conference as he guided the Maryland Terrapins in 1945. A former Southern Conference football coach who reached “folk legend” status is the late Frank Howard of Clemson, who guided the Tigers as a league member from 1940-52. Howard won 69 Southern Conference games which still ranks tied for fourth on the league’s all-time coaching victories list. The Southern Conference has been represented on the sidelines at five Super Bowls in recent years. Bobby Ross, who piloted the San Diego Chargers to the 1996 Super Bowl, was the head coach at The Citadel from 1973-77. Former Buffalo Bills head coach Marv Levy directed William & Mary from 1964-68. He was succeeded at William & Mary by Lou Holtz. William & Mary competed in the Southern Conference from 1936-77.

2006 UNCG Men’s Golf: Southern Conference

The Southern Conference, which enters its 86th season of intercollegiate competition in 2006, has become known as one of the nation’s leaders in emphasizing the development of the student-athlete and defining the league’s role in helping to build lifelong leaders and role models. The Southern Conference has excelled as the premier Division I-AA football conference since earning that classification in 1981. The Conference currently consists of 11 members in four states throughout the Southeast and sponsors 19 varsity sports and championships that produce participants for NCAA Division I Championships. The Southern Conference is the nation’s fifth-oldest NCAA Division I collegiate athletic association. Only the Big Ten (1896), the Missouri Valley (1907), the Pacific 10 (1915) and the Southwestern Athletic (1920) conferences are older in terms of origination. Throughout its history, the Southern Conference has been an innovator in college athletics. The Southern Conference was the first “super conference” with its charter membership including the likes of Alabama, Auburn, and North Carolina. The SoCon, as it has come to be known by headline writers throughout the country, is the league that gave birth to the threepoint shot in college basketball and was the college home of such sporting greats as Arnold Palmer, Jerry West and Charlie “Choo Choo” Justice. Academic excellence has been a major part of the Southern Conference’s tradition. League athletes have been recognized countless times on CoSIDA Academic All-America and district teams, highlighted this year by College of Charleston’s Phillip Coker, who was named Academic All-American of the Year in baseball. A total of 19 Rhodes-Scholarship winners have been selected from the conference.


In 2005, UNCG ranked #2 nationally by “The Princeton Review” among best bargain public universities. For the last six years, UNCG has been ranked in The Princeton Review’s “Best 357 Colleges” guide.

2006-07 UNCG Men’s Golf: TThis is UNCG

UNCG, with a campus currently covering 210 acres, was founded in 1892, making this the 115th year of its existence. In the Fall of 2006, UNCG had a record enrollment of 16,600, including more than 12,000 undergraduates. At the start of the decade, the total enrollment at UNCG was less than 13,000. The average SAT score for enrolled freshman in 2005 was 1051, the highest it has ever been. 53 percent of the freshman class had a high school GPA of 3.5 or better. In 2006, UNCG launched the Lloyd International Honors College. UNCG is located just two hours from the Appalachian Mountains or three hours from the Carolina Beaches. The Piedmont Triad is home to more than a million people, including 238,440 in Greensboro.

With a record number or more than 16,000 students enrolled for Fall 2005, a dedicated faculty and staff numbering more than 2,000, and exciting new developments underway, UNCG is rapidly taking its place as one of the finest institutions of higher learning in the country. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is classified by The Carnegie Foundation as a Doctoral/Research-Intensive University. The University was established in 1891 and became coeducational in 1963. The 210-acre campus is located one mile from the center of Greensboro, a city of 238,440. The Greensboro/Winston-Salem/High Point Metropolitan Statistical Area, commonly known as “The Triad” has a population of approximately 1.3 million.

University History

The University has a rich history. It was chartered Feb. 18, 1891, as the State Normal and Industrial School (later College), the first state-supported school for the higher education of women in North Carolina. The institution came into being as a direct result of a crusade made by Charles Duncan McIver on behalf of the education of women. Other pioneers in public school education — notably, Charles B. Aycock, Edwin A. Alderman, and James Y. Joyner — came to Dr. McIver’s assistance; but to him, more than to any other individual, the University owes its foundation. In the past century the University has evolved in its mission, as suggested with its sequence of names. It was known first as the State Normal and Industrial School, and after 1896 as the State Normal and Industrial College until 1919. During the period 1919-1931 it was known as the North Carolina College for Women, and became the Woman’s College of the University of North Carolina from 1932 to 1963. It is warmly remembered as “the WC” by its many alumnae of the period. During the years 1932-1963 the University was one of the three branches of the Consolidated University of North Carolina. The other branches included The University of North Carolina (at Chapel Hill) and the North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering (at Raleigh). In 1962, the Board of Trustees recommended that the Greensboro campus become coeducational at all levels of instruction beginning with the fall of 1964. Subsequently, by act of the General Assembly in the Spring of 1963, the name of the institution was changed to The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. In December of 1934, during the years of the Consolidated University, the Woman’s College Section of Phi Beta Kappa was installed. On February 17, 1956 Epsilon Chapter of North Carolina was installed at this campus. In October of 1971, the North Carolina General Assembly adopted legislation which combined all 16 of the state-supported institutions of higher education into a single University of North Carolina. The UNC system is governed by a board of governors and administered by a president. Each constituent institution has a separate board of trustees and is administered by a chancellor. The crusader for founding the institution, Charles Duncan McIver, served the institution as its first chief executive officer with the title of President. By act of the Board of Trustees in 1945, the title was changed to Chancellor. Dr. Patricia A. Sullivan became UNCG’s first woman chancellor in January 1995, succeeding Dr. Debra W. Stewart, Dean of the Graduate School at North Carolina State University who was named Interim Chancellor in the summer of 1994. During its first seven decades, the institution’s mission was to prepare women, primarily undergraduates, for the most effective living of that day. Today that goal – effective living – remains the same, but its scope has been greatly expanded. As UNCG, it now offers men and women over 150 graduate and undergraduate programs and provides opportunities to apply classroom learning to real life situations through internships and practica. It also offers students the chance to tailor-make their own programs of study

At the center of the UNCG campus stands a statue of the Roman Goddess Minerva. The original statue was a gift from the Class of 1907. James Barnhill (‘53) was commissioned to create a new statue in 2003. Minerva has been a symbol for the University dating back to the first time it appeared on diplomas in 1892. 25


based on individual needs and goals. Although contemporary in its educational program, UNCG is also realistic. In its effort to prepare graduates for effective living, it has built into its program the flexibility needed to meet the rapidly changing needs of society. UNCG, therefore, will remain a university in transition, not satisfied with yesterday or today, but always looking toward tomorrow.

The University Community

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is one of the fastest growing universities around. With a record 16,060 students enrolled, including 10,584 full-time undergraduates, the university has positioned itself for continued growth and success as the 21st century evolves. Despite record numbers of students, the student/faculty ratio is still just 16:1. Today’s UNCG includes: • The College of Arts and Sciences, which is made up of the departments of Anthropology, Art, Biology, Broadcasting and Cinema, Chemistry, Classical Studies, Communication, English, Geography, German and Russian, History, Mathematical Sciences, Philosophy, Physics and Astronomy, Political Science, Psychology, Religious Studies, Romance Languages, Sociology, and Theatre. It also includes the Residential College and The Center for Critical Inquiry in the Liberal Arts. • The Joseph M.

The Aubrey Paul & Georgia Garrison Lloyd International Honors College, which was established in 2006. It is named for the parents of Ms. Rebecca Lloyd, a patron of the College whose support has been invaluable in the formation of the Honors College. Ms. Lloyd’s gift, a $4 million endowment, was the largest-ever alumni gift at UNCG. The International Honors College offers enhanced academics, international and global perspectives, and a variety of extra-curricular activities that will give its students the skills and knowledge needed to be admitted to the most prestigious graduate schools, to compete for nationally competitive awards like the Fulbright, and to start exciting careers in the United States and abroad. Students in any major can choose from among its three different programs. All of these programs can be completed in the time it takes to earn a regular degree and offer a wide variety of small, innovative seminar-style courses that are the hallmark of a quality honors experience. A special characteristic of the IHC is its emphasis on international and global perspectives. In today’s world, international and global perspectives are a necessary part of a solid, complete university education. At IHC, these perspectives are not isolated in a single course or two. Instead, students can find those perspectives throughout the College’s programs – in most of its courses, in its honors residence hall, and in a variety of extra- and co-curricular activities. For honors students who study abroad at one of UNCG’s partner universities, a travel fund is available. Finally, the IHC operates on the principle that while courses are important, its students’ education is too important to be limited to the classroom. It offers its students a variety of special activities both at UNCG and abroad – an honor residence hall, special advising, student symposia, guest lectures and performances, informal coffees, internships and enhanced study abroad experiences.

Of the more than 16,000 students enrolled in the fall of 2005, 68 percent were female. In addition, 20 percent of the undergraduate student body and 13 percent of the graduate student body were minorities. UNCG’s enrollment increased 8.8 percent from the year before, the largest increase since 1974. In the fall of 2005, UNCG enrolled a record 2,424 freshman, 45 percent of which ranked in the top quarter of their high school graduating class. In addition, 53 percent of the incoming freshman class had a high school GPA of 3.5 or higher (on a 4.0 scale). The University also enrolled 1,253 transfer students. From those students first enrolled in the fall of 2004, 78 percent returned in the fall of 2005. Among the more than 16,000 students at UNCG, 32 percent of the student body lives in on-campus housing. Undergraduates have more than 100 areas of study from which to choose a major leading to one of six undergraduate degrees. In addition, there are 59 master’s degrees and 20 doctoral degrees offered. Among the 855 members of the faculty, nearly threefourths are full-time. More than 80 percent of the faculty hold doctorates or other terminal degrees. In the 200405 academic year, faculty engaged in 6,466 scholarly or creative works and published 56 books and 548 refereed articles. Faculty members earned 220 grants, as well. In all, the UNCG faculty submitted 316 research proposals totalling $99.7 million. Typically, UNCG awards more than 2,000 bachelor’s and nearly 1,000 master’s degrees during graduation festivities held each December and May. At the spring 2006 graduation ceremony, the University granted 1,326 bachelor’s degrees, 604 master’s degrees and 47 doctoral diplomas. UNCG has long had a reputation for academic excellence and is one of only six higher education institutions in the state with a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. Athletes at UNCG are not an exception to the rule. At the end of each of the last two academic years, more than 40% of UNCG student-athletes held a grade-point-average of 3.0 or better. A record 52 percent of UNCG’s student-athletes made the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll (3.0 GPA in a semester) in the Spring 2006 semester. In October 2004, “Cosmo GIRL”, a magazine geared towards young women, rated UNCG one of the Top 50 institutions in America. For its study, the magazine focused on specific factors important to female students: small class size, prominent female faculty, strong women’s athletic programs, a career center that facilitates internship opportunities, leadership options among clubs and activities and an active alumni network. The finalists were selected from 2,685 colleges and universities. In August 2005, The Princeton Review rated UNCG the second-best bargain in its “The Best 357 Colleges” guide. It marked the sixth-straight UNCG appeared in the guide, and its highest-ever rating.

UNCG was also ranked in the Top 50 public universities by Consumer’s Digest, making it the only institution to appear in both rankings (Princeton Review and Consumer’s Digest). In-state tuition and room and board rates for UNCG are just over $9,000 per year, while out-of-state rates are just over $20,000 per year. Campus life is enriched by a “small college” atmosphere and many extracurricular and coeducational activities. There are more than 130 student organizations, an active Student Government, fraternities and sororities, and a Campus Recreation program which offers informal, intramural and club sports, as well as an extensive outdoor adventure program. The more than 80 buildings on the campus reflect the 115-year history of the University. There are many new features, including a new, $26 million music building which opened in August 1999, and renovations to the Elliott University Center, which were recently completed. UNCG received approximately $166 million from the state for construction and renovation, based on voter approval of Higher Education Bonds. The $17.6 million Maud Gatewood Studio Arts Building and the $16.9 million Hall for Humanities and Research Administration are the centerpieces of the project. Groundbreaking took place in spring of 2001 and operations within the two buildings began this summer. In addition, construction began on a 400-student residence hall in 2005, which is expected to be completed for use during the 2006-07 academic year. Also included are renovations to the Student Health Center, Aycock Auditorium and Petty, Brown and McNutt buildings, as well as a connector between Jackson Library and the Elliott University Center. The many construction projects on the UNCG campus show the growth of the university, while at the same time attempting to preserve many of the structures that have made the institution what it is today. The Second Century Campaign for UNCG, which concluded Dec. 31, 1998, raised $55.4 million over a five-year span to create 77 new scholarship and fellowship funds, as well as funds for research, programs and acquisitions. In the Fall of 2004, the University announced that its newest campaign, entitled the Students First Campaign. The campaign has a fundraising goal of $78 million. The Students First Campaign will set aside $52 million for scholarships to make UNCG the school of choice for top high school students in the North Carolina and elsewhere. Remaining funds will also be used for endowments to attract top professors, expansion of university facilities and expansion of public services. UNCG hopes to meet its goal by the year 2009. UNCG is a member of the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges (NASULGC) and the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AASCU).

University Chancellor Dr. Patricia Sullivan

2006-07 UNCG Men’s Golf: Chancellor

Dr. Patricia A. Sullivan, who has served as UNCG’s Chancellor since January 1, 1995, is the institution’s ninth chief executive and the first woman to serve in the position. Her leadership has sustained UNCG’s record of excellence and prepared a solid foundation for the future. UNCG was founded as State Normal and Industrial School, a college for women in 1891. The institution became coeducational in 1963. Today, UNCG offers a full range of undergraduate and graduate programs. Sullivan led the University through a strategic planning process that produced the UNCG Plan. Created for five-year increments, the Plan provides a framework for enhancing UNCG’s position as a diverse, student-centered research university, linking the Triad and North Carolina to the world through learning, discovery, and service. Under Dr. Sullivan’s leadership, enrollment at UNCG exceeded 16,000 last academic year for the first time ever, while academic standards for admission have increased. The campus continues to lead the UNC system in minority enrollment, underscoring UNCG’s commitment to diversity. New undergraduate programs for freshman include Communication Across the Curriculum and the living-learning communities. Distinctive graduate programs include genetic counseling and management information systems, along with new Ph.D. programs in the areas of nursing, public health, economics, geography, history, information technology and special education. Funding to support research and community projects has continued to grow, along with giving by the University’s friends and supporters. UNCG’s new Students First Campaign is under way, with a goal of raising $78.2 million through 2009. The earlier Second Century Campaign for UNCG, which ended in December 1998, raised $55.4 million, far exceeding the original goal of $42.8 million.

2006-07 UNCG Men’s Golf: Athletic Director

Director of Athletics Nelson Bobb Now in his 24th year as Director of Intercollegiate Athletics at UNCG, Nelson E. Bobb has developed a nationally recognized program that has continually succeeded in competition as well as in the classroom. Bobb, the first fulltime athletic director at the University, is the primary architect of a program that now features 16 NCAA Division I teams, eight for men and eight for women. When he arrived in July 1983, there were eight teams competing on the Division III level. The University authorized the shift to Division I in February 1987 and he guided the program through the unprecedented change in competitive status in only five years. UNCG is one of only a dozen institutions to ever compete in all three divisions. However, no other institution has made the complete shift of all teams from Division III to Division I in that time frame. During his tenure, he has watched over the construction or renovation of all of the Spartans’ athletic venues. He began that process by serving on the committee that built Fleming Gymnasium and the HHP Building in 1989. He then moved onto the transformation of Campus Field in 1991 into what is today UNCG Soccer Stadium – one of the premier venues in all of college soccer. In 1999, he oversaw the construction of the UNCG Baseball Stadium and the renovation and lighting of the UNCG Tennis Courts. Last year, he added to the list the transformation of UNCG’s softball facility to become a top-of-the-line stadium venue, and the reconfiguration of seating in Fleming Gym, which added chairback seating on both sides and additional stands under one of the baskets. Under Bobb’s guidance, Spartan student-athletes have consistently graduated at a rate equal to or higher than the general student population at UNCG. Each of the last two academic years, more than 40 percent of UNCG’s student-athletes earned Dean’s List. Last spring, a record 52 percent of student-athletes earned at least a 3.0 GPA in the semester. Other recent program accomplishments include completing the NCAA certification process for Division I institutions twice and successfully transitioning the department’s teams into Southern Conference membership. Under Bobb’s leadership, UNCG hosted the final two rounds of the 1997 and 1998 NCAA Division I Women’s Soccer Championship, and was home to Olympic athletes from several countries for training prior to the Olympic Games in Atlanta in 1996. During his tenure, UNCG teams have won 34 conference tournament titles, 25 as an NCAA Division I member. They have also won 63 conference regular season titles, 37 of those since moving to NCAA Division I. UNCG earned the Commissioner’s Cup for overall excellence in the Big South for three consecutive years. While Bobb was athletic director in the 1980’s, the men’s soccer team won four Division III national championships and the women’s basketball team made five consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances with a third-place finish in 1988. During his tenure at UNCG, Bobb has also served in various NCAA appointments, including serving on one of the first NCAA Certification teams. Most recently, Bobb served on the Division I Men’s Soccer National Committee

29

and had a two-year term as the chair of the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Soccer Rules Committee. UNCG student-athletes have received numerous awards. In 1984, he established the Chancellor’s Scholar-Athlete Award to honor the studentathlete(s) posting the highest grade-point average annually. Bobb, a native of Gahanna, OH, oversees a staff of more than 50 full and part-time employees with administrative divisions of administration and business, student welfare, facilities and operations and integrated public affairs within the department. Before coming to UNCG, Bobb served as an assistant athletic director at Cornell University for five years. He also served as an assistant football coach at Cornell for nine seasons. A 1970 graduate of Kent State (OH) with a bachelor’s degree in education, Bobb also holds a master’s degree in secondary education from Kent. As an undergraduate, he was a three-year letterwinner on the football team as an offensive guard and earned All-Academic recognition from the Mid-American Conference as a junior. He was an all-conference choice his senior year.

WRESTLING


The overnight success of the UNCG athletics program has been some 60 years in the making. Spartan teams are big achievers in their 16th year in Division I competition. The success story however, began while UNCG was still the Women’s College of the University of North Carolina and intercollegiate competition for women was still in its infancy.

1940s

Nancy Porter may have been the first student-athlete in the modern sense of the word at UNCG. The Ohio native competed in national women’s golf tournaments as early as 1948.

1950s

Women’s College hosted the 10th national golf tournament in 1954 at Starmount Country Club. The College fielded regionally competitive teams that had their beginnings in club sports, play days and other recreational events.

1960s

UNCG launched women’s basketball in 1963 under coach Ellen Griffin. Other early teams were tennis, golf and field hockey. LPGA Hall of Famer Carol Mann was a student at UNCG. She left school early to turn professional. The University became co-educational in 1963. Men’s athletics were added in 1967-68 and the intercollegiate program for men and women received formal recognition from the University. During the fall of 1967, the nickname Spartans was adopted, giving the athletic teams a “fierce mascot, while still preserving the heritage of the WC’s Minerva mark.” Men’s teams joined the Dixie Conference in 1968. Bowling was one of the early men’s teams.

The women’s basketball team finished fourth in the National Collegiate Tournament in 1971. The team was one of the first to compete with the five-player rule. The women’s golf team won the University’s first team national championship in 1973, coached by Nancy Porter and featuring future pro Donna Horton White. UNCG was a leader in forming the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW).

1980s

The men’s basketball team, coached by Larry Hargett, won the Dixie Conference Championship and competed in the NCAA Division III Tournament in 1980. Ryan Fox won the 1981 individual national title in Division III men’s golf. In the spring of 1981, the University streamlined its program from 12 to eight competing at the NCAA Division III level. The 1981-82 academic year was the in which the NCAA sponsored women’s championships. The men’s soccer team was ranked in the national Top-20 for the first time in September of 1981. It did not leave the poll for another 10 years.

teams, all first

2006-07 UNCG Men’s Golf: Athletics History

1970s

Coached by Lynne Agee, in her first season, the women’s basketball team finished runner-up in the inaugural Division III championship in 1982. It was the first of seven straight NCAA trips for the team. With Mike Berticelli at the helm, UNCG captured its first men’s national championship in soccer in 1982 and then repeated in 1983. The women’s tennis team, under Agee’s direction, was the national runner-up in 1983. Nelson E. Bobb was hired as the first full-time athletic director in 1983. The women’s volleyball team posted a 34-3 record and reached the NCAA quarterfinals in 1984. Men’s soccer player Eddie Radwanski, the first two-time All-American in the program’s history, was the first pick in the Major Indoor Soccer League draft in 1985. Under Michael Parker’s direction, the men’s soccer team became the first in NCAA history to win three consecutive national championships, in 1985, 1986 and 1987.

32


In February of 1987, the University announced the elevation of the athletic program from Division III to Division I, an unprecedented move in NCAA history. The women’s basketball team finished third in the nation after entering the NCAA Tournament unranked in 1988. The Division II era began in 1988-89 and women’s soccer was added to the program. The team was ranked No. 13 nationally before ever playing a game. The men’s soccer team was runner-up in the 1989 Division II national tournament and Jason Haupt led all divisions in scoring.

1990s

The men’s and women’s soccer team were ranked No. 1 nationally in Division II at the same time in 1990. The women’s volleyball and basketball teams made Division II playoff appearances in 1990-91.

2006-07 UNCG Men’s Golf: Athletics History

Women’s golf returned to the athletic program and baseball was added in 1990-91. UNCG Soccer Stadium, a $3.6 million facility, opens for its first game on September 7, 1991, as the men’s team defeated Campbell, 3-1. Four days later, the Spartans stunned No. 2 NC State, 2-1. Men’s soccer’s Mike Gailey led all Division I players in scoring in 1991. UNCG joined the Big South Conference in 1992, ending a four-year period as an independent. Softball claimed the 1993 Big South regular season title. Brian Moehler became the first Spartan to sign a professional baseball contract after being drafted in the sixth round of the 1993 Major League draft by the Detroit Tigers. He made his “big league” debut in 1996, and pitched the first game ever in

Comerica Park in 2000. Men’s soccer won the 1993 Big South championship. Shawn Mahoney was named the tournament’s MVP. Women’s golf was ranked in the Top 20 nationally in the fall of 1993. Men’s soccer claims its second straight Big South championship on Nov. 5, 1994. Larry Feniger was named the tournament MVP. Women’s basketball claimed five straight Big South regular season titles in 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996 and 1997. Vickie Henson was named the league’s Player of the Year in 1993. Volleyball won the 1995 Big South regular season championship with a record of 7-0. Liz Gremillion was named the league’s MVP. Softball captured three consecutive Big South regular season titles in 1995, 1996 and 1997. Erin Chandler was named the Player of the Year in 1995 and Christine Hornak was the Player of the Year in 1997. Softball also captured four straight Big South Tournament championships in 1994, 1995, 1996 and 1997. In just its fourth season, baseball claimed the Big South title and won two games in the 1994 NCAA Regionals. Mike Gaski was named Big South Coach of the Year. On April 15, 1995, men’s tennis captured the Big South Championship. On April 18, 1995, men’s and women’s golf sweep the Big South Tournament. Becky Morgan was named the league’s Player of the Year. Men’s basketball claimed back-to-back Big South regular season titles in 1995 and 1996. On March 2, 1996, men’s basketball knocked off Liberty, 79-53, to claim the Big South Tournament Championship and advance

“The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics (ICA) is actively engaged in the University community and is committed to the development of a competitive Division I program that is nationally recognized as a leader in the welfare of our student-athletes and professional staff. Mirroring the University, ICA is a community of students and professionals of diverse backgrounds embracing an informed appreciation of different views and cultures, as well as their own. Their quality of experiences will encompass the social, aesthetic and ethical development of all individuals represented in the program regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, veteran status, political orientation or sexual orientation. “A founding guideline of Division I athletics at UNCG states that the student-athlete is first and foremost a student. ICA makes every effort to provide an environment for learning where the student-athlete’s responsibilities are integral to their educational success inside and outside the formal classroom. The University provides numerous academic support programs aimed at assisting a student’s academic growth. ICA seeks to further assist student-athletes by enhancing current academic programs and providing educational initiatives supplemental to those offered by the University. These initiatives are designed to stimulate intellectual, social, cultural, gender and personal development of the student-athlete. The goals of these programs are to promote the graduation of student-athletes at a rate equal to or greater than the overall undergraduate student population. A special emphasis is placed on maintaining comparable graduation rates for studentathletes in every demographic group.”

- Excerpt from UNCG’s ICA Department Philosophy

• Participate in structured study during the fall semester of their freshman year.

Academic Excellence AEP works to support the academic progress of studentathletes toward intellectual development and graduation. At UNCG, the Student Academic Services, Learning Assistance Center, Counseling and Testing Center, Speaking Center and Writing Center help AEP provide information in the following areas: • Structured study; • Academic agendas; • Goal setting; • Time management; • Study skills; • Tutoring; • Study groups; • Progress reports (for all student-athletes in all courses twice per semester);

Academic Development AEP encourages student-athletes to develop and pursue career goals and life goals. The School of Education’s Counseling and Educational Development Department, Business and Career Services’ representatives provide student-athletes with a variety of experiences, including: • CED 210: Career and Life Planning; • Field experiences; • Career Day.

requesting input such as grades, attendance, etc. Students are assigned tutors in any problem areas.

Office of Academic Compliance UNCG’s newest addition to its academic services, the Academic Compliance Office is charged with monitoring and evaluating issues related to the continuing eligibility of the student-athletes and completing NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) reporting forms regarding continuing eligibility and retention. Academic Compliance also works closely with student-athletes who are identified as needing extra attention while adjusting academically and socially. The goal of the Academic Compliance Office is to serve as a bridge for UNCG’s student-athletes and assist in connecting them with the appropriate campus-based support service dependent upon their specific needs. The main goal of this office is to assist student-athletes in their pursuit of a degree and ensure compliance with University and NCAA guidelines. The Academic Compliance office relies on a combination of professionals and offices across campus to be successful in delivering quality guidance and assistance to our studentathletes in a timely fashion. The staff provides a wide array of services and programs that are geared towards developing the fundamental skills needed to be successful in college both as a student and an athlete. As a whole, the University community must strive to reach the ultimate goal of “being recognized in Division I as a national leader in the welfare of the student-athlete.”

2006-07 UNCG Men’s Golf: Acad. Enhancement

At the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, it is the athletic department’s goal to see that UNCG studentathletes graduate with a degree in their chosen field. The demands of integrating athletic competition, academic success and personal growth are challenging. The Academic Enhancement Program (AEP) bridges the gap between education, athletics and other university programs. The primary goal of the AEP is to help studentathletes make satisfactory progress toward graduation while providing the education and services they need to maintain a well-balanced lifestyle amid the demands of an NCAA Division I institution. AEP focuses on the whole individual – academic, athletic, and emotional – in the years during and after college. AEP firmly believes that there is a direct relationship between quality of effort (both academic and athletic) and performance. AEP considers the results achieved in the classroom to be a direct reflection on UNCG’s athletic program. Through AEP, students explore university programs, options and opportunities, although UNCG student-athletes are expected to take responsibility for their own actions and decisions. They are expected to represent themselves, their team, ICA and UNCG in a manner that consistently promotes honesty, fairness, trust, respect and responsibility. Services provided by the AEP staff include: • Facilitate positive freshman experience through participation in SOAR (Spartan Orientation, Advising and Registration) & UNS (University Studies - required of all freshmen student-athletes); • Provide academic support helping student-athletes utilize campus support systems; • Monitor academic progress of student-athletes through 5 & 10 week reports; • Provide a monitored structured study area where student-athletes can work; • Facilitate student-athlete’s exploration of academic interests, majors, & career options to allow him/her to graduate with a meaningful degree; • Work with student-athletes to help them understand degree audit sheets, degree evaluations and the impact those have on working toward graduation.

AEP’s staff includes a director, an assistant academic coordinator, graduate interns, daytime and Sunday night structured study monitors and tutors. The staff includes professionals who provide various services such as academic advising, career counseling, individual and small group tutoring, classroom instruction and other support services.

Academic Advising Freshmen and sophomores without a declared major will be advised through the College of Arts and Sciences. All other student-athletes follow the normal procedures for university academic advising concerning schedules, possible class choices, degree requirements, etc. AEP staff monitor academic progress, advise and counsel student-athletes and serve as a liaison between ICA and the academic community. Progress letters are sent to faculty
