UNION UNIVERSITY

director of athletics Tommy Sadler enters his 27th year of service at Union University, and the third in his role as the Director of Athletics for Union. Sadler was named to this position after serving the 2008-09 year as the acting athletics director. He follows in the footsteps of Dr. David Blackstock, who had been Union’s Athletic Director for the past 34 years. Sadler, a native of Jackson, is a 1972 graduate of South Side High School and a 1976 graduate of Union University. During his time at Union, Sadler played four years of baseball for the Bulldogs. In 1981, he received his Master of Education from the University of Memphis. His tenure at Union began in 1985 as director of public relations. After a year in that role, he became the university’s director of corporate and foundation support, a position he held for 10 years. In 1996, Sadler then moved into his previous role as associate director of athletics.

Sadler earned the Union University Staff Member of the Year in 1994. In 2010, Sadler was named the TranSouth Conference Athletic Director of the Year. Sadler has also been very active in athletics at the conference level. He is beginning his ninth year as the president of the TranSouth Conference, of which Union is a member. Prior to this time as president, he served the conference as its vice president.

“Tommy Sadler has faithfully served Union University in a variety of ways through the years, but his key contribution has been in his work with the athletic department,” Dockery said. “He is respected by all of our coaches, by those who support the athletic program and by the leadership of the university. At this transitional time in the life of our athletic department, I know of no one better to help us chart a future course for that department than Tommy Sadler.” Sadler and his wife Michelle, a teacher in the Jackson-Madison County School District, make their home in Jackson.

Union finished runner-up in the NAIA last season, making Campbell’s record in national title games now 4-1. Campbell has won four NAIA National Titles (2005, 2006, 2009, 2010) in the past seven seasons and has also made seven straight trips to the NAIA semifinals. Union finished the 2010-11 season with a 35-2 record, including a 15-1 TranSouth record, winning the regular season and conference tournament titles. Campbell also continued the NAIA record for consecutive No. 1 rankings in the national poll. As of the final ranking in March of 2011, Union has been ranked No. 1 in the NAIA for 48 consecutive polls, dating back to the preseason poll of the 2007-08 season. Over the past four seasons, Campbell has led his teams to a combined 143-6 record, including a historic 2007-08 season as they recorded the first perfect regular season in Union women’s basketball history. The Lady Bulldogs finished with a perfect 29-0 regular season mark in 200708.

Campbell’s .893 winning percentage ranks No. 1 among active NAIA women’s basketball coaches with five or more years of coaching. In a win over Azusa Pacific (Calif.) on Nov. 22, 2008, Campbell notched his 300th career win. He recorded his 200th career win on Nov. 19, 2005 versus The Master’s (Calif.), while earning his 100th career win over Philander Smith (Ark.) on Nov. 19, 2002. Campbell currently ranks No. 1 in the NAIA’s all-time winning percentage by women’s basketball coaches with at a .893 clip. In his career as Union’s head coach, Campbell’s teams have won four NAIA National Titles (2005, 2006, 2009, 2010), 10 conference regular season titles and eight conference tournament titles. He has reached the 35-win plateau six times in his career and set a program record with 37 wins in 2008-09. Campbell continues the winning tradition of the Union program which has accumulated the second most wins of any women’s basketball program (all levels NCAA and NAIA) over the last five years (UCONN 178, Union 173, Tennessee 160). Union ranks second over the last ten years among all levels of women’s basketball with 340 wins (UCONN 342), and second over last 15 years with 500 wins (UCONN 506).

season outlook

The Union University women’s basketball team enters the 2011-12 season after falling just short of a third straight NAIA National Title in 2011. The Lady Bulldogs finished the 2010-11 season with an overall record of 35-2 and a TranSouth Conference record of 15-1. Union won the TranSouth regular season and tournament titles in the TranSouth and advanced to the national title game. Union lost three players, all starters, to graduation including Kayla Hudson, Sarah Chan and Kayla Bryant. Hudson became Union’s all-time assists leader and started every game in her career at Union. Hudson and Chan were named NAIA AllAmericans last season. Union head coach Mark Campbell will be looking to reload with seven newcomers to the program to go along with five returning players. Union returns one starter from last season in All-American Lavanda Ross. Ross is the only returning starter on the Lady Bulldog roster. Ross has been named an All-American in each of her three seasons. She will be called upon to produce offense and leadership for the Lady Bulldogs this season. The junior class is made up of three players including Rebecca Sharpe, Christina Coney and Mrashi Karumba. Sharpe played in 32 games last season at the guard position. Coney and Karumba are transfers into the program. They will provide depth and athleticism to the Union roster. Union has four sophomores this year including Paige Parker, Mildred Olumasi, LaTesa McLaughlin and Shelby Ashcraft. McLaughlin saw a significant amount of playing time last year and was named to the second team all-conference. Parker and Olumasi will be expected to increase their contributions from last season as the two played in a combined 58 games. Ashcraft is a transfer who will step in and make an immediate impact on Union’s success in 2011-12. The freshman class consists of four players beginning their college careers. Emily Sissom, Amy Philamlee, Astrid Huttemann and Adenike Dawodu. Huttemann spent last season as a red-shirt in the Union program and will be called on to provide an offensive punch right away. Sissom, Philamlee and Dawadu are all talented players that will have the chance to make a mark on Union women’s basketball early in their careers. Union’s non-conference schedule may be the toughest NAIA schedule this season. Union will face 10 nationally ranked teams in their 14 non-conference contests, including St. Francis (Ill.), Cumberlands (Ky.), Oklahoma Baptist, Lee (Tenn.), St. Xavier (Ill.), Campbellsville (Ky.), Evangel (Mo.), Westminster (Utah), Maters’s (Calif.) and Oklahoma City. Union also faces NCAA and SEC power Tennessee in an exhibition game. In the TranSouth, the Lady Bulldogs will have to go through NAIA powers Freed-Hardeman (Tenn.) and Bethel (Tenn.) and other quality teams in order to repeat as conference champs. Campbell, along with assistant coach Katie Woodruff and graduate assistants Kaitlin Dudley and Kayla Hudson, will work to get the returners and the large group of newcomers to mesh and continue the winning traditions of Union women’s basketball. Union has been approved to begin the NCAA Division II membership process and is playing in their final season of NAIA competition.

PAIGE PARKER

5-11 • Sophomore • Guard Hometown: Hanceville, Ala. Previous School: Cold Springs HS Birthday: February 9

Coach’s Comments. Paige has the opportunity to step in and be our biggest threat from the arc. She was a great shooter throughout her high school career. I am confident that she can step in and replace some of the three point shooter we lost to graduation last year. Paige is the perfect example of what a student/ athlete should be about. Her length and shooting ability are her biggest assets. Union Career. (‘09-’10)...Redshirt season. (‘10-’11)...played in 25 games for Union...averaged 3.0 points per game...made 21 three pointers. Before Union. Parker prepped at Cold Springs (Ala.) High School where she averaged 17 points and seven rebounds as a senior. Parker made 107 three pointers during her senior year, shooting 40-percent from behind the arc. Over her last three years of high school, she made 300 three pointers at a 40-percent clip. Parker led her Cold Springs team to the Alabama State Title in 2008 and 2009, while helping the team post a 70-2 record over that twoyear span. She was named the MVP of the 2008 and 2009 state tournaments, while scoring 29 points in the title game in 2009.

Coach’s Comments. Tesa is the heart of our team. She has great communication skills and plays as hard as any player on our roster. She knows what we are trying to do and understands the tradition of Lady Bulldog Basketball. This should be a breakout year for her as she leads our team on both ends of the floor. She has improved her outside shot and her ability to finish at the basket. She makes our team more intelligent every possession she is on the floor. Union Career.

mrashi karumba

5-11 • Junior • Guard Hometown: London, England Previous School: Northeastern CC Birthday: November 6

#12

Coach’s Comments. A newcomer to this year’s Lady Bulldog roster, “Mash” will be asked to make an immediate impact. She is transferring from Northwest C.C. in Colorado after sitting out an entire year. She is a very good athlete that likes to attack the basket and can knock down shots behind the arc. Her length and athleticism will help the team on both ends of the floor. She has a flow to the way she plays and is another example of a very good basketball player that exhibits humility in competition. We expect her to help us score from the perimeter. Union Career. (‘11-’12)...first season at Union Before Union. Karumba transferred to Union from Northeastern (Colo.) Junior College where she played basketball for one season. While at Northeastern, Karumba averaged 16 points, seven rebounds and made 55 three pointers at a 42-percent clip. She helped lead her team to a 25-5 record. Karumba was named all-region at Northeastern. Karumba prepped at Greig City Academy in London.

Christina coney

5-11 • Junior • Guard Hometown: St. Louis, Mo. Previous School: Forrest Park CC Birthday:

#21

Coach’s Comments. Christina was a scoring machine in junior college and is a great person. She is transferring from Forrest Park C.C. after sitting out an entire year and she will thrive in the Union environment and will not play until the second semester. This time will give her the necessary time to adjust to our program. She can shoot the three and post up smaller players. Our hope is that she will help us immediately late in the season. Union Career. (‘11-’12)...first season at Union Before Union. Coney transferred to Union from Forest Park (Mo.) Community College where she played basketball for two seasons. She was named all-conference twice, all-region twice and was also named All-American. Coney averaged 26 points and shot 48 percent from the field at Forest Park.

Coach’s Comments. Shelby transfers in from the University of Arkansas Little Rock. She has the ability to help us right away and a variety of different positions. She is physical and can step out and make shots facing the basket. She will get better as the year goes along after sitting out an entire year.

emily sissom

5-7 • Freshman • Guard Hometown: Woodbury, Tenn. Previous School: Cannon County HS Birthday: February 4

#11

Coach’s Comments. Emily had one of the most decorated careers as a shooter in Tennessee. She holds the record for the most three’s made in a career. If she can make the transition to the college game she will help us immediately this year. She is again the picture of the type of student/athlete we want in our program. Making three’s is such a big part of the game and we feel like we have the best shooter in the state of Tennessee last year. She will continue to get better in the other parts of the game as the year goes on. Union Career. (‘11-’12)...first season at Union Before Union. Sissom prepped at Cannon County (Tenn.)

amy philamlee

5-5 • Freshman • Guard Hometown: Jonesboro, Ark. Previous School: Valley View, HS Birthday: August 20

#22

Coach’s Comments. Amy is one of the best freshmen we have signed outside the West Tennessee area. She was All-State and was MVP of Northwest Arkansas. She attacks the basket and gets to the foul line as much or more than any player that we have had over the past few years. She also possesses a toughness that brings out her best in the toughest of circumstances. She will be asked to make an immediate impact on this year’s team and play the point guard and shooting guard positions. Union Career. (‘11-’12)...first season at Union Before Union. Philamlee was a two-sport athlete at Valley View (Ark.) High School. She was a four-time all-state and all-conference player.

Astrid huttemann

5-10 • Freshman • Guard Hometown: Paraguay Previous School: Colegio Cristo Rey Birthday:

#23

Coach’s Comments. Astrid had the benefit of being here all last semester and watching what we do and understanding why we do it. That should be a big advantage for her but she also is still making the adjustment to living in the US. She has a great first step and can shoot the three. She is a bi9g guard that can play a variety of positions. As she understands what we expect of her the more she will contribute to the success of our program. Union Career. (‘11-’12)...first season at Union Before Union. Huttermann prepped at Cristo Rey High School where she played basketball. She averaged 20 points, eight rebounds and two assists per game in high school. She played for the U16 and U18 championships for women.

About the NAIA

The purpose of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) is to promote the education and development of students through intercollegiate athletic participation. Member institutions, although varied and diverse, share a common commitment to high standards and to the principle that participation in athletics serves as an integral part of the total educational process. The NAIA embraces the concept of the student and recognizes the importance of the individuality of each member institution, the value of the conferences and Association of Independent Institutions (A.I.I.) structure, and the benefits of membership in a national association. The NAIA supports gender equity. Gender equity is an atmosphere and reality where fair distribution of overall athletic opportunity and resources, proportionate to enrollment, are available to women and men, and where no student-athlete, coach or athletics administrator is discriminated against in any way in the athletics program. That is to say, an athletics program is gender-equitable when the men’s sports program would be pleased to accept as its own the overall participation opportunities and resources currently allocated to the women’s sports program and vice versa.

Advancing sport with innovative change

The NAIA has 50,000 student-athletes participating at nearly 300 member colleges and universities throughout the United States and Canada. Divided into 25 conferences and the Association of Independent Institutions (A.I.I.), the NAIA offers 23 championships in 13 sports. Since 1937, the NAIA has continued a long tradition of pushing the envelope and making a positive difference in the lives of students, coaches and parents. The Champions of Character program is the latest cutting-edge addition to the NAIA’s proud history of innovation (www.championsofcharacter.org). Through Champions of Character, the NAIA seeks to create an environment in which every studentathlete, coach, official and spectator are committed to the true spirit of competition through the five core values: respect, integrity, responsibility, servant leadership and sportsmanship.

NAIA championship recaps

Union wins second straight NAIA national title JACKSON, Tenn. - 3/23/2010 - Union (Tenn.) University claimed its second consecutive NAIA Division I Women’s Basketball National Championship with a 73-65 victory over Azusa Pacific (Calif.) University. The Lady Bulldogs shot 15-of-30 (0.500) in the second half and 5-of-10 (0.500) from behind the arc to pull away from the Cougars down the stretch. The first half of the game was back and forth, featuring 11 ties and five lead changes. After matching baskets for most of the half, Union took its largest lead with 5:45 remaining before intermission. Ashley Lillard knocked down two free throws to give Union a 25-20 advantage. C.J. Hill would answer for Azusa Pacific just 10 seconds later drilling a 3-pointer to bring the Cougars back within two points. Kristie Hala’ufia scored off of a Union turnover less than 30 seconds later to tie the score at 25-25 with 5:03 remaining in the half. Neither squad took more than a two point lead the rest of the half and entered the intermission knotted at 33-33. APU knocked down 14-of-25 (0.560) shots in the first half, while Union shot just 11-of-32 (0.344) from the field. It was the Lady Bulldogs dominance on the glass that kept the game close in the first half. Union out-rebounded Azusa 12-4 on the offensive glass in the first half, leading to 13 second chance points. Union jumped out to a quick lead in the second half, starting with a 7-0 run keyed by a Kaitlin Dudley 3-pointer, a basket by Zeinab Chan and two Jessica Graves free throws. Azusa pulled back within two points on Hala’ufia’s lay-in with 16:53 remaining and took a two-point lead at the 13:10 mark on Michelle Byrd’s 3-point basket. It would be Azusa’s only lead of the second half, as the Lady Bulldogs went on a 15-2 run over the next 5:30 to take a 60-49 lead. Kayla Hudson keyed the run knocking down three 3-point field goals during that span. The closest Azusa would get the rest of the way was a five-point deficit, 70-65, with 17 seconds remaining. Hudson and Dudley sealed the victory for Union, knocking down free throws in the final seconds for a 73-65 win. Union out-rebounded the Cougars 40-26 overall in the game, 18-6 on the offensive end, which led to the Lady Bulldogs outscoring Azusa 16-7 in second chance points. Tournament MVP, Zeinab Chan, led the Lady Bulldogs with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Kayla Hudson and LaVanda Ross scored 14 points each and Jessica Graves added 10 points. All-Tournament First Team member Kaitlin Dudley scored seven points. Union moves into a tie for second place with Oklahoma City and Southwestern Oklahoma with five national championships. The Lady Bulldogs passed Southern Nazarene (Okla.) for first place in alltime tournament wins with 59. The Lady Bulldogs have a 59-16 record in the tournament, while Southern Nazarene holds a 58-11 all-time record. Union finishes its season with a 36-2 record, while Azusa Pacific ends its season at 29-7. Union (Tenn.) Wins Fourth NAIA Title With 73-63 Win JACKSON, Tenn. - 3/24/2009 - No. 1-seeded Union (Tenn.) University claimed its fourth NAIA Division I women’s basketball championship with a 73-63 victory over one of the tournament’s other No. 1 seeds, Lambuth (Tenn.) University, Tuesday night at Oman Arena. Two-time NAIA Player of the Year Josephine Owino led the Lady Bulldogs with 27 points, nine rebounds and five blocks in a game Union never trailed. Owino scored the game’s first four points, and back-to-back three-pointers from Kayla Hudson and Kaitlin Dudley capped a game-opening 15-3 run for Union. The Lady Bulldogs ran the first-half lead up to 13 points three separate times before Chytearra Kintchen scored five straight points to spark a 12-3 Lambuth run that cut Union’s lead to 29-25 with 1:22 to play before halftime. However, Dudley knocked down a triple with 1:03 left, and Hudson hit a trey with less than 10 seconds to give the Lady Bulldogs a 35-25 halftime lead. A pair of Kintchen free throws early in the second half pulled Lambuth to within six points at 43-37, but Owino answered with back-to-back buckets that started a 16-6 run that gave Union its largest lead of the game, 59-43, with 9:34 to play. Lambuth twice cut the lead to nine points, but Union answered both times on the ensuing possession to push the lead back into double digits to hold off the Eagles for the victory.

Hudson registered 11 points with a pair of treys, and she dished out a game-high six assists.

These are the promises that enable you to share His divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires. In view of this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone.
