NO HYPHEN, PLEASE The UNCG sports information office asks members of the media not to put a hyphen in our school’s name While at one time all of the schools in the UNC system included a hyphen in their names (i.e. UNCWilmington, UNC-Asheville), that standard changed several years ago not to include a hyphen (i.e. UNC Greensboro). On first reference, we prefer that you use UNC Greensboro or UNCG. On second reference, UNCG is perfectly acceptable (not UNC-G as was used in the old days). Thanks for your cooperation.

Terrance STEWART HEAD COACH

Ninth year at UNCG Ninth year overall Lenoir-Rhyne, 1994

Terrance Stewart enters his ninth season as the head men’s golf coach at UNC Greensboro. Stewart was named to his post on Aug. 15, 2001. In each of the last four seasons, Stewart has had a player finish in the top five individually at the Southern Conference Championship. Last season, it was Will Bowman, who tied for fifth and earned All-Southern Conference honors. Bowman also picked up his first career win during the season, taking medalist honors at the Palma Del Mar Intercollegiate. Stewart directed the Spartans to a trio of top-five team finishes during the season, as UNCG was third at the Palma Del Mar and fifth at the UNCG Bridgestone Collegiate and the Towson Intercollegiate. In 2007-08, Nathan Stamey finished second at the conference championship. That season also saw Stamey become the first Spartan in the Division I era to make it as an individual to the NCAA Tournament. Stamey was the first UNCG individual to compete in the NCAA postseason since Todd Jackson in 1981, when the Spartans were competing at the Division III level. The 2007-08 campaign saw the Spartans finished tied for fourth at the Southern Conference Championship, improving one place from the season before. That was also one of three times the Spartans finished in the top five in the team standings during the season. In 2006-07, the Spartans finished fifth in the Southern Conference Championship. The team was led by senior J.D. Bass, who won the individual championship. UNCG captured the title at the 2006 Sam Hall Intercollegiate, ending with a six-under-par 845, a school-record 54-hole total. The Spartans just missed another record for best team round with a thirdround 278, one off the school mark. 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 Stamey’s fourthplace finish, which earned all-conference honors. The Spartans captured arned him second team all conference honors 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 fifth-place finishes at the Tunica National Intercollegiate and the Pinehurst Intercollegiate. In 2004-05, UNCG placed fourth at the SoCon Championships, while Lowder and Bass were each named to the SoCon all-conference team for their efforts during the course of the season. Led by 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 – what is now UNCG’s annual fall Bridgestone Collegiate – in the final tournament of the regular season. Sandwiched in between, Stewart watched as the Spartans posted top-five finishes in five of their other seven regular-season tournaments, including a second-place showing at the 49er Collegiate Classic. The 2003-04 campaign was a breakthrough season as the Spartans posted a tie for second at the SoCon Championship, which represented the best finish in school history. In March 2004, the Spartans claimed top honors at the Winthrop-Waterford Invitational in Rock Hill, S.C. 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 Bass took home medalist honors in two tournaments each. 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 just his second season, Stewart guided the Spartan squad to a fifthplace finish in the 2003 SoCon Championship. At the time, it was the program’s best finish 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. There, 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.

He will be a great asset to our program.” Christina taught health and physical education and coached at the high school and college levels from 1962-72. While a coach at SUNY-Brockport in 1972, he was named Baseball Coach of the Year by the SUNY Athletic Conference.

A 1962 graduate of Ithaca College and a native of Auburn, N.Y., Christina now lives in Greensboro, N.C., with his wife, Barbara. They have three children: Bob, Lynn and Lori, and five grandsons: Dawson, Parker, Daniel, Michael and Braden.

UNCG BRIDGESTONE COLLEGIATE UNCG hosts the annual UNCG Bridgestone Golf Intercollegiate at Forest Oaks Country Club each season. The famed Forest Oaks course was home to the Greensboro PGA Tour stop for more than 30 years, mostly recently known as the Wyndham Championship. 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 1960s. PGA Tour star Davis Love III recently headed up a redesign that has earned praise from his peers and the club’s membership and guests.

THE SOUTHERN CONFERENCE The Southern Conference, which began its 89th season of intercollegiate competition in 2009, is a national leader in emphasizing the development of the student-athlete and in helping to build lifelong leaders and role models. The Southern Conference has been on the forefront of innovation and originality in developing creative solutions to address issues facing intercollegiate athletics. From establishing the first conference basketball tournament (1921), tackling the issue of freshmen eligibility (1922), developing women’s championships (1984), to becoming the first conference to install the three-point goal in basketball (1980), the Southern Conference has been a pioneer. 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. Academic excellence has been a major part of the Southern Conference’s tradition. Hundreds of Southern Conference student-athletes have been recognized on ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-America and all-district teams. A total of 19 Rhodes Scholarship winners have been selected from conference institutions. The Conference currently consists of 12 members in five states throughout the Southeast and sponsors 19 varsity sports and championships that produce participants for NCAA Division I Championships. The Southern Conference offices are located in the historic Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, S.C. A textile mill that was in operation from 1880 until 1999, Beaumont Mill was renovated in 2004 and today offers the league first class meeting areas and offices as well as a spacious library for storage of the conference’s historical documents. Membership history On Feb. 25, 1921, representatives from 14 of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association’s (SIAA) 30 members met at Atlanta’s Piedmont Hotel to establish the Southern Intercollegiate Conference. On hand at the inaugural meeting were officials from Alabama, Alabama Polytechnic Institute (Auburn), Clemson, Georgia, Georgia School of Technology (Georgia Tech), Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi A&M (Mississippi State), North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Polytechnic Institute (Virginia Tech) and Washington & Lee. Dr. S.V. Sanford of Georgia was chosen as acting chairman and N.W. Dougherty of Tennessee was named secretary. The decision to form a new athletic conference was motivated by the desire to have a workable number of conference games for each league member. With 30 schools in the SIAA by the early 1920s, it was impossible to play every school at least once during the regular season and many schools went several years between playing some conference members. In addition, in 1920, the SIAA voted down proposed rules that an athlete must be in a college a year before playing on its teams and refused to abolish a rule permitting athletes to play

summer baseball for money. Play began in the fall of 1921 and a year later, six more schools joined the fledgling league including Tulane (which had attended the inaugural meeting but had elected not to join), Florida, Louisiana (LSU), Mississippi, South Carolina and Vanderbilt. VMI joined in 1925 and Duke was added in 1929. By the 1930s, membership in the Southern Conference had reached 23 schools. C.P. “Sally” Miles of Virginia Tech, president of the Southern Conference, called the annual league meeting to order on Dec. 9, 1932 at the Farragut Hotel in Knoxville, Tenn. Georgia’s Dr. Sanford announced that 13 institutions west and south of the Appalachian Mountains were reorganizing as the Southeastern Conference. Members of the new league included Alabama, Alabama Polytechnic Institute, Florida, Georgia, Georgia School of Technology, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Mississippi A&M, University of the South, Tennessee, Tulane and Vanderbilt. According to the minutes of the meeting, Dr. Sanford stated that the division was made along geographical lines. Florida’s Dr. J.J. Tigert, acting as spokesman for the withdrawing group, regretted the move but believed it was necessary as the Southern Conference had grown too large. The resignations were accepted and the withdrawing schools formed the new league which began play in 1932. The Southern Conference continued with membership of 10 institutions including Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Virginia, VMI, Virginia Tech and Washington & Lee. The second major shift occurred some 20 years later. By 1952, the Southern Conference included 17 colleges and universities. Another split occurred when seven schools including Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest departed to form the Atlantic Coast Conference which began play in 1953. The revamped Southern Conference included members The Citadel, Davidson, Furman, George Washington, Richmond, VMI, Virginia Tech, Washington & Lee, West Virginia and William & Mary. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that includes 12 institutions and a footprint that spans five states: Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Georgia. Current league members are Appalachian State, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Samford, Chattanooga, Western Carolina and Wofford. Leadership John Iamarino was officially named commissioner of the conference on January 2, 2006. Iamarino has promoted the Southern Conference through an ambitious agenda which has improved competition, upgraded compliance-related matters, launched the conference’s Hall of Fame and increased the marketing and brand awareness of the conference and its member institutions. 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.

John Iamarino

www.soconsports.com t 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. In 1987, he was succeeded by Dave Hart who spearheaded the transfer of the league office from Charlotte, N.C., to Asheville, N.C. 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 conference logo and elevated the conference’s commitment to marketing and development of corporate partners. Danny Morrison headed the conference from 2001-2005 and orchestrated the league’s move from Asheville, N.C., to Spartanburg, S.C. Under Morrison’s leadership, the conference increased its marketing and promotional efforts. Championship 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. Commissioner Germann spearheaded the Southern Conference’s expansion to include women’s athletics during the 1983-84 season. That year, league championships were held in volleyball, basketball and tennis. 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 Germann Cup, named in honor of the former commissioner, annually recognizes the top women’s athletics programs in the conference. From its humble beginnings, women’s athletics have become an integral part of the Southern Conference and its success. The Southern Conference 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 & field, tennis, golf and softball.

Record is only the second woman to hold an athletic director’s position in the 89-year history of the Southern Conference. “I am delighted that Kim Record is joining UNCG as director of intercollegiate athletics,” said UNCG Chancellor Linda P. Brady. “She is the right person for this position, and she possesses the leadership, administration and fundraising skills that are essential to bringing greater success to Spartan athletics. I look forward to working with her to raise UNCG’s program to a higher level of visibility and excellence.” At UNCG, Record will lead a program that fields men’s and women’s teams in 18 sports, 250 student-athletes, and 57 employees.

The Spartan men’s basketball team will be playing its games in the Greensboro Coliseum beginning this season. Among other responsibilities, she will coordinate fundraising and operation of the Spartan Club with the vice chancellor for university advancement. She will oversee efforts to engage alumni, fans and the community with UNCG athletics. The AD also takes the lead role in strategic planning and in athletics facilities development.

year exceed $2.1 million. In her 13 years at Florida State, she had a broad range of administrative duties, including serving as a member of the Executive Management Team, which determined and implemented policy decisions for a 19-sport, $50 million intercollegiate program. She directly supervised three sports programs – men’s and women’s basketball and women’s soccer – and monitored Title IX compliance. Other areas included executivelevel staffing; day-to-day departmental operations; serving as liaison with the trademark licensing program; and oversight for marketing, media and public relations, and radio and television contracts. In construction, she facilitated FSU’s $6 million state-of-the-art soccer and softball stadium and its $10 million men’s and women’s basketball training center. She oversaw a project that showcased the history of athletics at FSU as part of a $100 million facilities improvement plan. Her initial responsibilities as associate director of athletics at FSU included oversight of men’s and women’s tennis, swimming & diving and softball. Record also held the designation of senior woman administrator. At Virginia, she supervised all aspects of the day-to-day operations of the department and specialized in external operations. She implemented marketing and promotional strategies for all 26 sports programs as associate director of athletics for external operations. She was the executive staff member of a capital campaign team created to raise $50 million. She came up through the ranks at Virginia, where she earned her bachelor’s degree, starting out as a sports information intern who was progressively promoted in the department to associate director of athletics for administration. As a consultant with ISP, Record provided marketing expertise in the area of athletics sports signage, including videoboards, scorer’s tables and other digital signage. She has also coordinated purchase and installation between vendor, institution and ISP.

SPARTAN SUCCESS Student-athletes at UNCG have enjoyed a tremendous amount of success over the years. Although the athletic department just celebrated its 40th season last year, athletics at UNCG date back to the 1940s in the days before the university became co-ed. Golfer Nancy Porter, who went on to a successful pro career, is regarded as one of UNCG’s first student-athletes, competing in tournaments on the national level in the late 1940s. In 1963, as the university prepared to go co-ed, UNCG began to formally organize athletic teams. Women’s basketball, under head coach Ellen Griffin, women’s tennis, women’s golf and field hockey were started. LPGA Hall of Famer Carol Mann was on one of the early UNCG women’s golf teams. In 1967, UNCG began men’s athletics and the intercollegiate athletics program received formal recognition from the University. In the fall of 1967, the Spartan was adopted as the program’s mascot. In 1968, UNCG’s men’s teams joined the Dixie Athletic Conference, known today as the USA South Conference on the NCAA Division III level. Women’s teams competed as part of the AIAW early on, with UNCG being one of the lead organizers of the organization. Two of the first men’s sports were basketball and bowling. In 1971, with the emergence of the five-player rule in women’s basketball, UNCG finished fourth in the National Collegiate Tournament. Two years later, the women’s golf team won the AIAW national title – UNCG’s firstever team national crown. Porter coached the squad and future professional golfer Donna Horton White was on the squad. Since then, UNCG has enjoyed a number of successes: • Five national titles in men’s soccer during the 1980s and a runner-up finish in women’s tennis. • An unprecedented five-year move from Division III to Division II to Division I. • A trip to the “Big Dance” – the NCAA men’s basketball tournament – in just its fifth year of Division I status. • Men’s soccer coach Michael Parker and women’s basketball coach Lynne Agee were the first to lead teams to the NCAA tournament in all three divisions. • A baseball squad built from scratch by Mike Gaski that made it to the NCAA tournament in just its fifth season of play. • A men’s soccer program that conquered all comers for two months to become the No. 1 team in the nation in 2004, the beginning of UNCG’s three straight NCAA tournament Round of 16 appearances and four in five years. • Kyle Hines, who became just the sixth player in college basketball history to record 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds and 300 blocked shots in a career. • Individuals like wrestler Dock Kelly, who overcame birth defects that left him without legs qualifying for the NCAA Championship. • Students like Siggi Eyjolffson, who earned Academic All-American honors three times. From major league gue pitcher Brian Moehler to MLS champion Alejandro lejandro Moreno to LPGA star Becky Morgan, Spartan alumni have gone on to successful careers ers in sports. That success ss isn’t just limited to thee playing field, either. Thee late Doug Hamilton was one of the pioneerss within MLS and played ed on the UNCG national al championship teams ms off the 1980s. Eyjolffson son returned to his native ve Iceland and is one ne of the top people in his native country’s soccer federation, currently serving as their women’s national team head coach. S p a r t a n athletics has had its ts success stories over ver the years … and the he best is yet to come.
