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.

SIXTH SEASON AS HEAD COACH • LYNCHBURG, 2000
Linh Nguyen enters his sixth season as head coach of UNCG’s cross country and indoor track and field teams while he is in his seventh year at the helm of the Spartans’ outdoor track and field teams. Additionally, Nguyen is in his 12th year overall with the Spartans, having served as an assistant coach from 2001-06. Nguyen has transformed the UNCG programs into a perennial contender in the Southern Conference and the Spartans are making noise on a national level. Under his guidance, 2011-12 was one of the best years in program history. Nguyen was named the SoCon Cross Country Coach of the Year after leading both the men’s and women’s programs to conference titles. The Spartan men dominated their competition last year by claiming five of the first 11 spots at the SoCon meet. They tallied a team score of 26, the lowest (and therefore best) by any team in the event in 13 years. The Spartans’ margin of victory of 47 points was the largest by any squad in 20 years. The UNCG Women won last year’s event with a total score of 35, which was the best by any program in seven years. The Spartans won the event by 45 points, which represented a radical departure from form in the SoCon meet, the previous eight of which had been decided by a total of 42 points. Nguyen coached both SoCon Runners of the Year in 2011 as Paul Chelimo picked up top honors on the men’s side and Ashley Schnell claimed honors on the women’s side for the second straight year. Additionally, Paul Katam was named the league Freshman of the Year on the men’s side. The Spartans placed nine members on the All-SoCon teams last year, a program record. Chelimo picked up All-America honors at the NCAA Cross Country Championships, placing 13th in the race to become the first runner in school history to earn All-America honors. Nguyen continued the Spartans’ success on the track as Chelimo and Schnell won the indoor mile races at the SoCon championship. Additionally, UNCG posted SoCon championships in both men’s and women’s distance medley relay races with the women posting a league record time of 11:34.99. In outdoor track, the Spartans took their success even farther as both Chelimo and Katam won their races at the NCAA Regional in the 5,000-meters and 10,000-meters, respectively. Both runners would go on to earn All-America honors at the national championships with Chelimo finishing as the national runner-up in his event. Additionally, Schnell was awarded the SoCon and NCAA postgraduate scholarships while also being nominated for the NCAA Woman of the Year. She was named to the Capital One Academic All-America Second Team by CoSIDA. In 2010-11, Nguyen saw six student-athletes earn 12 All-SoCon honors, including four Southern Conference titles, and two who advanced to NCAA Regionals. The year started off great as Schnell became the first runner in school history to win the Southern Conference title in cross country and was also named the SoCon Women’s Runner of the Year. She would also go on to earn All-Region honors, a first in school history. Shaina Sumney was also named first-team All-SoCon in cross country and helped lead her team to then school-best third place finish. The men’s team also had a then school-best second place finish as Joey Thompson was runner-up at the SoCon Championship and earned first-team honors along with Mike Koech. The Spartans’ carried that momentum into the track & field season as Schnell captured the 3,000-meter title at the SoCon Indoor Track & Field Championships, becoming the first-ever women’s runner in school history to accomplish that goal. Nguyen’s team continued its success with a SoCon title in the women’s distance medley relay, as well. On the men’s side, Kenny Hinman was tabbed to the SoCon All-Freshman Team in the 3,000 and 5,000 meters, while Katam earned the same distinction in the 5,000 meters. UNCG would continue its impressive year during the outdoor season when Schnell won the 1,500-meter SoCon title and advanced to the NCAA Regionals in the 5,000 meters, becoming the first-ever female in school history to do that. Chelsea and Shaina Sumney were named All-SoCon in the 5,000 meters after finishing second and third in the event, respectively. On the men’s team, Katam qualified for the NCAA Regionals in the 10,000 meters and was just one spot away from advancing to nationals. During the 2009-10 season, the Spartans saw improvements both as a team and individually under Nguyen. The men’s cross country team came in third place at the SoCon Championships to turn in a top-five performance for the sixth-straight season. Mike Koech earned runner-up honors and Thompson came in fifth place as they were both named to the All-SoCon First Team. Andy Clyne also earned second-team honors to mark the first time in school history that UNCG has had three runners earn All-SoCon honors in the same season. Sherrika Jordan once again led the women’s team as she finished in eighth place to earn Second-Team All-SoCon honors. The Spartans carried that momentum into the indoor track & field season in 2010 as Koech and Thompson once again led the way. Thompson earned All-SoCon honors in the 3,000 meters for the second time in as many years in the event as he was edged out and finished in second place. He was also the runner-up in the mile to earn All-SoCon honors in that event. Koech was named to the SoCon All-Freshman Team in the 5,000 meters, as he set a new school record in the race. In the outdoor season, UNCG continued to rack up Southern Conference awards. Thompson earned runner-up honors once again, this time in the 1,500 meters, to earn All-SoCon honors. Senior TJ Wyatt also performed well at the SoCon Championships as he was named All-SoCon in the 800 meters after finishing in second place. Taylor Day was named to the SoCon All-Freshman Team in the 1,500 meters, as well. On the women’s side, Shaina Sumney was also named to the SoCon All-Freshman Team in the 1,500 meters. In the 2008-09 season, Spartans Jermaine Coore and Sherrika Jordan were named All-SoCon at the Southern Conference Cross Country Championships. In indoor, Thompson broke the school record in the 3,000 meters and earned All-SoCon honors
2012 UNCG C r o s s C o un t r y in the event too. Taylor Hurst was named All-SoCon in the 800 meters and Kerry Hartman was named all-freshman in the mile. During the outdoor season, Thompson was named All-SoCon in the 1,500 meters and AJ Savoia earned All-SoCon honors in the 3,000 meter steeplechase. TJ Wyatt was also named All-SoCon in the 800 meters after earning runner-up honors. In 2007-08, Sherrika Jordan became the seventh runner in UNCG women’s cross country history to run sub-23:00 in the 6,000-meters. Jordan ran 22:58.65 at the NCAA Southeast Regionals, which was the eighth-fastest time in UNCG history. The 2008 indoor season saw four men’s runners earn All-SoCon honors, including the men’s distance medley relay team earning All-SoCon honors for the fourth time in five seasons. Jess Weber broke the school record in the 800 meters and Josh Wyatt recorded a new record at the 5,000 meters. During outdoor, the men saw Clyne (800m) and AJ Savoia (3,000m steeplechase) race their way to All-SoCon distinctions, earning UNCG’s first All-SoCon honors for outdoor in two year. For the women, Weber concluded her career by setting a new record in the 800 meters in her final meet of the season, clocking 2:17.81 at the Duke Asics Twilight and becoming just the second Spartan in program history to run sub-2:20 in the 800 meters. In his first season as head coach of the cross country teams, the men posted their highest finish at the SoCon Championship meet, placing third out of 11 teams. Individually, Josh Wyatt and Nick Vaccaro finished fifth and eighth, respectively, garnering All-SoCon honors and becoming the first set of Spartans to receive cross country All-SoCon honors in the same season. For the women, Jess Weber and Sherrika Jordan each registered a 6K time that ranked among UNCG’s top-25 times. During the 2007 indoor season, Jeff Williams won his third-straight title in the 800 meters en route to earning All-SoCon status. The distance medley relay team of Vaccaro, Terry Wyatt, Williams and Xavier Rutz also earned All-Son honors with a second-place finish at the SoCon Championships. Nguyen was named head coach of the Spartans at the start of the 2006 outdoor season. In his inaugural season at the helm, both Jeff Williams (800 meters) and Charles Jones (triple jump) qualified for the NCAA East Regionals. Prior to being named head coach, Nguyen served as an assistant coach and as a volunteer assistant coach for the Spartans. In his four years as an assistant, Nguyen produced 24 All-Conference honorees, one NCAA Regional qualifier and one NCAA National participant. Charles Jones became UNCG’s first NCAA Regional and National qualifier in 2005. As a volunteer assistant, Nguyen coached Heidi (Sloop) Pinkerton to All-SoCon cross country status in 2002. Prior to UNCG, Nguyen was a volunteer assistant coach at Lynchburg College, his alma mater, for one season. During the 2000-01 school year, the Hornets swept the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) titles in cross country, indoor and outdoor. Nguyen was an eight-time All-ODAC selection. He led Lynchburg to a pair of top-five finishes at the NCAA South/Southeast Regional Cross Country meet, including one third-place finish. He also took the Hornets to a conference title in 1999, while capturing ODAC Runner of the Year Honors. Nguyen, a native of East Hampton, N.Y., graduated from Lynchburg College in 2000 with his bachelor’s degree in sports medicine. He received his master’s in exercise physiology from UNCG in 2007. Nguyen and his wife, Christina, reside in Greensboro, with their son Khoi.

The Spartan men’s basketball team began playing its games in the Greensboro Coliseum in 2009-10 and enjoyed success last season under SoCon Coach of the Year Wes Miller winning the North Division title. The Spartans will play in the Greensboro Coliseum for the fourth year in 2012-13, hosting 15 games in one of the premier facilities in the region. Record coordinates fundraising and operation of the Spartan Club with the vice chancellor for university advancement. She oversees efforts to engage alumni, fans and the community with UNCG athletics. The Spartan Club surpassed its annual scholarship fund goal of $300,000 for the 2012 fiscal year and set a new all-time record for the scholarship fund. The Spartan Club posted an annual scholarship fund total of $307,479, a 20.7% increase over last year’s mark, increasing their efforts by over $50,000 and surpassing the previous high that was set in 1987. Record also has a lead role in strategic planning and in athletics facilities development. She helped complete the facility upgrades at the UNCG Baseball Stadium and the renovations of the HHP locker room facilities. The 12,000 square foot HHP facility hosts team lounges, shower facilities and general locker room areas for men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s cross country and track, men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball and softball. Record, who served as a consultant with ISP Sports before taking her current position, was the senior associate director of athletics at Florida State University from 1995 to 2008, and held a succession of positions at the University of Virginia from 1984-1995, culminating with an appointment as associate director of athletics for administration. Record emerged from a national search that drew 125 candidates, and is UNCG’s first female athletic director. She is only the second woman to hold an athletic director’s position in the 89-year history of the Southern Conference. 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 executive-level 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 rose 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 video boards, scorer’s tables and other digital signage. She has also coordinated purchase and installation between vendor, institution and ISP. Within the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), Record has served on both the executive committee and the Director’s Cup Committee. Within the NCAA, she served on the Women’s Soccer Committee and the Regional Soccer Committee. A native of Charlottesville, she graduated from Virginia and earned an M.S. degree in sports management from Florida State. She has two sons – Kyle, 24 a graduate student at the University of Virginia, and Josh, 19, a freshman at the College of Charleston.
