Spartan Coaching Staff

Alma Mater • Lenoir-Rhyne ‘94, B.A. Sports Management Coaching Experience UNCG • Head Men’s Coach (2001-present) Lenoir-Rhyne College • Head Men’s and Women’s Coach (1996-2001) • 2001 South Atlantic Conference Women’s Coach of the Year • 1999 South Atlantic Conference Men’s Coach of the Year Terrance Stewart enters his seventh season as the head men’s golf coach at UNC Greensboro. Stewart was named to his post on August 15, 2001. Last season, the Spartans finished fifth in the Southern Conference Championships. The team was led by senior J.D. Bass who won the men’s individual championship. UNCG captured the title at the 2006 Sam Hall Intercollegiate ending with a six under par. With a 845 54-hole total, the Spartans set a new school-record and just missed another record in best team round with 278. Following the win, the Spartans were named Golfweek’s National Men’s Collegiate Team of the Week. As a team, UNCG also finished second at both the Cavalier Classic (892) and the Mission Inn Collegiate Invite (874). 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, LenoirRhyne 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/Lenoir-Rhyne 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.

As an assistant, J.D. Bass will work as the assistant director for the UNCG Bridgestone Golf Collegiate Championship hosted by UNCG, he will also be responsible for recruiting, conducting practices, and player development.

As an amateur player he earned Asheville Citizen-Times Player of the Year and Polo Junior All-American honors in 2002 and captured the 2002 AJGA Henry Griffitts Junior and 2001 Signal Mountain Junior Titles. Bass won the amateur division of the 46th annual Skyview Open at Asheville Municipal Golf Course in July of 2005 posting a final round 70 to win the event by 13 strokes with a three-day 54-hole total of 196 (61-65-70). He also earned an alternate spot in the 2006 U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship.

Last year, Bass won the Southern Conference Men’s Golf Championship and became the first male Spartan golfer to win a SoCon title and the fourth to win a conference title in the past 30 years. He was awarded the SoCon April Athlete of the Month and the SoCon Golfer of the Week for the second week of April. During his junior season at UNCG, he was named Southern Conference Golfer of the Week on February 7 for his top-ten finish at the Rice Intercollegiate and was one of three players to play in all 11 tournaments. He finished second on the team with a 75.10 scoring average, recorded one top ten finish (Rice Intercollegiate – 8th), and finished in the top-20 on two occasions (Pinehurst Intercollegiate - t13th, Tunica National Intercollegiate – t18th). Bass shot a season low 215 (72-68-75) at the Mid Pines Intercollegiate to finish in 21st place and tied a career-low with a four-under-par 68 in the second round of the Mid Pines Intercollegiate. In the 2004-05 season, Bass was named second team All-Southern Conference and was one of five players to compete in all 10 tournaments. He finished the season second on the squad with a 73.97 scoring average, finished in the top 20 in four consecutive tournaments, and recorded top ten finishes in back-toback tournaments (Birkdale Collegiate Classic - 7th, Furman Intercollegiate - t8). Bass shot a season-low 214 (72-70-72) in his 12th place finish at the 49er Collegiate Classic and recorded a 29th place finish at the Southern Conference Championship after firing a three-day total of 228 (80-74-74).

Derek Fathauer Louisville 2005 Bridgestone Champion

Following a 18-month hiatus, the Bridgestone returns to UNC Greensboro. 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.

College of Charleston

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 fiftholdest 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 three-point 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. 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

Chattanooga

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.

Davidson

Elon

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.

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.

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-theYear three times.

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.

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-of-the-Year award four straight times from 1963 through 1966.

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.

For the last six years, UNCG has been ranked in The Princeton Review’s “Best 357 Colleges” guide. UNCG, with a campus currently covering 210 acres, was founded in 1892, making this the 115th year of its existence. In the Fall of 2005, UNCG had a record enrollment of 16,060, including more than 12,000 undergraduates. Just five years earlier, 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, and 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.

The Piedmont Triad is home to more than a million people, including 238,440 in Greensboro.

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 more than any other individual, the University owes its foundation to him. In the past century the University’s mission has evolved, 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 was 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 as an extension of the UNC-Chapel Hill chapter. In 2006, the chapter was voted the Best in the Nation among public universities by the national society. UNCG is one of only six higher education institutions in the state with a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. 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 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 a 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 based on individual needs and goals.

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. 2007/08 UNCG Men’s Golf Media Guide • 21

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is one of the fastest growing universities around. With a record 16,600 students enrolled, including approximately 10,500 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:

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 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.

universities by Consumer’s Digest, making it the only institution to appear in both rankings (Princeton Review and Consumer’s Digest). 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-state tuition and room and board rates for UNCG are just over $10,000 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 a total renovation of the Elliott University Center, which was completed in 2003. UNCG received approximately $166 million from the state for construction and renovation, based on voter approval of the North Carolina Higher Education Bonds. The $17.6 million Maud Gatewood Studio Arts Building and the $16.9 million Moore Humanities and Research Administration Building are the centerpieces of the project, along with the $40 million Science Building, which was opened in 2003. In addition, the 400-student Spring Garden Apartments residence hall was put into use during the 2006-07 academic year. Other recent renovation projects include the Gove Student Health Center, Aycock Auditorium and Petty, Brown and McNutt buildings, as well as a connector between Jackson Library and Elliott University Center. The many construction projects on 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. In the Fall of 2004, the University launched the Students First Campaign, which has a fundraising goal of $100 million. The Students First Campaign will set aside $52 million for scholarships to make UNCG a firstchoice school for top high school students from North Carolina and elsewhere. Remaining funds will also be used for endowments that will create new professorships, expand university facilities and public services. UNCG expects to meet its goal by the year 2009. 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. 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

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 maintained 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 instituted 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, studentcentered research university, linking the Triad and North Carolina to the world through learning, discovery, and service. Under Dr. Sullivan’s leadership, enrollment at UNCG again exceeded 16,000 last year, 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 the Lloyd International Honors College, 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 $100 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.

Most recently, Bobb served on the Division I Men’s Soccer National Committee and had a two-year term as the chair of the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Soccer Rules Committee. This academic year, Bobb will serve on four Southern Conference committees, serving on the Committee on Committees, Constitution and By-Laws, Audit Committee and the Men’s Soccer Sport Committee, of which he is the chair. On campus, Bobb is a member of the Chancellor’s Executive Staff and has been part of many governing bodies both inside and outside of athletics during his tenure. He is one of the original members of the Greensboro Sports Commission, having served in the body since 1989. He has also been a member of the Greensboro Sports Council since 1983. He has presented twice each to the NCAA Convention and the NACDA Convention. UNCG student-athletes have received numerous awards. In 1984, he established the Chancellor’s Scholar-Athlete Award to honor the student-athlete(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.

UNCG Administration

Beginning his 25th year this fall 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. Earlier this summer, he was named to NACDA’s NCAA Division I-AAA Executive Committee as an at-large member. 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. Most recently, 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.

UNCG Athletic History

The overnight success of the UNCG athletics program has been some 60 years in the making. This year marks the 40-year anniversary of the official formation of UNCG’s Intercollegiate Athletics Department. 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.

Kyle Hines became the first men’s basketball player to win Conference Player of the Year honors in March 2007. Hines was second in the league in scoring and first in rebounding, which also earned him AP AllAmerica Honorable Mention honors. Earlier in the season, Hines became the first UNCG player to top the 30-point mark four times in the same season. Hines led the conference in scoring for the first 100 days of the season and finished the year with five 30-point games on the year. His 20.9 ppg average was the first time a Spartan averaged more than 20 points per game since 1990-91. 2007 was a banner year for the UNCG men’s golf program. Freshman Drew Younts shot a school-record 63 in early March, breaking an 80-year-old record at El Campeon GC in Howey-in-the-Hills, FL. Six weeks later, senior J.D. Bass became just the fourth Spartan in 30 years to win an individual conference title when he won the SoCon Championship at the Country Club of South Carolina.

UNCG’s baseball team found quite the way to turn its first-ever triple play on May 25, 2007. Playing in its second game of the Southern Conference Tournament, the Spartans’ duo of Tim Carrier and Ricky Orton turned the trick to give the Spartans an 8-6 win over Georgia Southern. With the bases loaded Carrier, UNCG’s second baseman, caught a linedrive off the bat of Justin Klinger. Carrier stepped on second and then fired to Orton for the game’s final out and the first triple play in school history.
