Student-athletes at UNCG have enjoyed a tremendous amount of success over the years. Although the athletic department celebrated its 45th season in 2010-11, 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 first-ever 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 -- went from Division III in 1987, to Division II in 1988-90 and have been Division I since 1991. • 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. • Men’s basketball games moved off campus to the Greensboro Coliseum, one of the premier facilities in the country. From major league pitcher Brian Moehler to MLS champion Alejandro Moreno to LPGA star Becky Morgan, Spartan alumni have gone on to successful careers in sports. That success isn’t just limited to the playing field, either. The late Doug Hamilton was one of the pioneers within MLS and played on the UNCG national championship teams of the 1980s. Eyjolffson returned to his native Iceland and is one of the top people in his native country’s soccer federation, currently serving as their women’s national team head coach. Spartan athletics has had its success stories over the years … and the best is yet to come.

Head Coach THOMAS MOZUR Ninth Season As Head Coach • Tennessee, 1997

Thomas Mozur enters his ninth season as the head men’s tennis coach at UNCG in 2012-13. He previously served for two seasons as an assistant coach for the Spartans’ men’s and women’s tennis programs before taking over the men’s program in the fall of 2004.

Since Mozur took over as head coach, the Spartans have shown consistent progress, culminating in UNCG’s first Southern Conference Championship title in school history and first-ever trip to the NCAA tournament in 2009-10. Mozur has led UNCG to a combined 56-33 record in the last four seasons, with the Spartans going 29-11 in league play during that time and finishing third in the regular-season SoCon standings each year. In 2012, UNCG won nine matches, including a solid 6-4 record in SoCon play with wins against Elon (4-3), Appalachian State (4-3), at Furman (5-2), Davidson (5-2), The Citadel (7-0) and Georgia Southern (4-3). The Spartans fell 4-1 in the SoCon quarterfinals against Furman to end the season. Senior Orcun Seyrek was named SoCon Player of the Year as well as first team all-conference. Sophomore Ahmet Sarioglu made second team all-conference at No. 2 singles and freshman Randy Phillips made the all-freshman team. Seyrek and Sarioglu made first team all-conference in doubles as well. 2011 brought more of the same success that UNCG has come to expect under Mozur, as the team posted its third-straight 15-win season, going 15-6 overall and 8-2 in the SoCon. The Spartans led the league for much of the season and were still in contention for the regular-season title heading into the final week of play. Junior Orcun Seyrek was named All-Southern Conference in singles for the third -straight season, while Timion Meijs joined him on the first team for doubles. Freshman Ahmet Sarioglu was a second-team performer, while Sarioglu and Chanon Varapongsittikul earned SoCon All-Freshman honors. Mozur guided UNCG to a SoCon-best 17 wins to go with just six losses in 2010, including an 8-2 mark in league play for the Spartans’ second consecutive third-place finish. UNCG led the league for much of the season, jumping out to an 8-0 start before dropping its final two contests. The Spartans rebounded in the SoCon Championship, claiming one of the four spots in the shortened tournament and downing Furman – which handed UNCG one of its two SoCon losses – and Elon for their first league tournament title since winning the Big South in 1995. Playing in the NCAA tournament for the first time at any level (Division I, II or III), UNCG dropped a 4-0 decision to six-time NCAA champion Georgia on its home court. Then-sophomore Seyrek set a school record for individual wins in 2010, going 28-6 and winning 19 of his final 21 singles matches. He was a first-team All-SoCon selection for the second straight season, earning the honor in both singles and doubles with partner Arsel Kumdereli. Mozur’s 2008-09 team set the stage for the 2010 version, going 15-8 overall and picking up its first postseason win in seven years with a 4-2 victory over Georgia Southern in the quarterfinals of the SoCon tournament. In addition to the team success, UNCG had individual success that year as Seyrek swept Southern Conference Freshman and Player of the Year honors. He became the first freshman in 19 years to claim the league’s top honor and it marked the first time someone had won both awards since the freshman of the year award was established in 1992. Seyrek became UNCG’s first men’s tennis conference player of the year since the athletics program moved to Division I in 1991.

4-20 3-21 7-15 3-20 15-8 SoCon semifinals 17-5 SoCon Tourn. Champs 15-6 9-13 73-108

UNCG went a combined 7-41 in Mozur’s first two seasons (4-20 in 2004-05, 3-21 in 2005-06) but has steadily progressed since then. The Spartans went 7-15 on the year in 2006-07 under Mozur, continuing their rise. After upgrading their early season schedule significantly, the Spartans went 3-20 in 2007-08 but vastly improved as the spring season progressed and turned in three-straight winning seasons.


2012-13 UNCG M e n ’ s T e nn i s Since joining the Spartans, Mozur, a Knoxville, Tenn., native has been responsible for developing practices, individual workouts, recruiting and camps, while bein specifically involved with individual hitting and team practices. As a junior player, Mozur was ranked as high as No. 1 in the state of Tennessee, 10th in the Southern Section and 100th nationally. Mozur, a four-year letterwinner at the University of Tennessee, was the 1994 SEC Flight B indoor doubles champion. As a senior in 1997, he was named team captain for the Volunteers. He was also ranked No. 2 in the nation in father/son doubles.

Mozur came to UNCG after running the Junior Development program for five years at The Knoxville Racquet Club. There, he was in charge of developing tournament players and his efforts helped to triple the program in size. Mozur also worked at the USTA Area Training Center in Tennessee for three years and assisted in many camps.

Assistant Coach BRETT BERNSTEIN 1st Season As Assistant Coach • Texas Pan American, 2010 Brett Bernstein has been named as assistant coach for the men’s tennis team, as announced by head coach Thomas Mozur. Bernstein played four seasons for the University of Texas-Pan American from 2006-10. In his opening collegiate start as a freshman he started off strong with a win against No. 20 Texas A&M All-American doubles team. As a sophomore,Bernstein posted two wins against No.33 Clemson as a team captain. In the 2008-09 season at UTPA, Bernstein and the Broncs ranked as high as No. 2 in the Southland Conference and defeated rival No. 39 Texas A&M-Corpus Christi in a 4-2 victory. The Sugarland, Texas native, while playing No. 2 singles, went 14-7 and was 18-4 at No. 1 doubles with then sophomore brother Beau Bernstein, earning them a top 100 ITA ranking. Bernstein ended his UTPA career leading his team in the Southland Conference Tournament with a perfect 4-0 record in singles and doubles.
