Reigning Homecoming King and Queen By Hollie O’Connor Trends Editor Darius Jones, communication studies junior, and Ariel Freeman, curriculum and instruction senior, were crowned Texas State Homecoming King and Queen last year to cheers from friends

and fans. Neither student expected to win, but both are still enjoying their status as Texas State royalty in the days until they pass on the titles. The University Star spoke with Jones and Freeman about last year’s ceremony and what the two have been doing since winning.

HO: Can you take me back to the moment they announced you as the winner? AF: I was just so surprised, very surprised and honored at the same time because I truly love Texas State. It was one of the best experiences I’ve had. I was just honored to get into the top four, so to learn that I won the title of Texas State Homecoming Queen was just icing on the cake. It was just one of the best moments I had had in a long time.

HO: Do you have any special duties as Homecoming Queen? AF: I had to go to a couple of events to meet different people and shake hands, and this week we (the homecoming queen and

HO: Can you take me back to the moment they announced you as the winner? DJ: I felt really honored to make it that far. It was a great experience. I was so humbled. It felt like Texas State was thanking me for the hard work that I had done. I didn’t expect to make it to the finals. I hadn’t even planned on running, but I’m glad I did. It all worked out.

concentration. I miss Texas State a lot.

HO: What have you been up to since last homecoming? AF: Since last homecoming, I’ve just been trying to get everything together for teaching, getting my certification, doing internships and working with children. And this summer I finished up some more classes. I moved back home in August to full-time student teach, so I’ve been busy making lesson plans and just getting ready for life. It’s a lot of work and it takes a lot of

HO: How has winning affected you? AF: Sometimes when you’re doing all of this work, you don’t always see it pay off, but winning made me feel like I did what I had to do at Texas State. I did orientation. I was a Strutter. I was an RA (resident assistant). I tried to keep my grades up. I felt like homecoming queen was an encouragement that I was doing the right thing in how I was trying to live my life. It was an encouragement to keep reaching out to people.

HO: What qualities make a good homecoming queen? AF: Someone who is humble. Someone who likes to talk to anyone. Someone who is encouraging, because people like to be around people who listen to them. You need to be a motivator, but also someone who is down to earth and wants to help other people. That’s a homecoming queen to me. You can’t just think you’re a queen, or that you’re “all that.” You need to care about other people.

Alumni return for show at Texas Music Theater

By Amy Greene Trends Reporter

Two Bobcats are bringing their funky sounds back to San Marcos as a part of the band Mingo Fishtrap. Alumni Mikel Urdy and Zol Waterhouse, along with the other band members, will return to play a show at Texas Music Theater Oct. 13. Mingo Fishtrap, named for a crossroads in Denton, started in the mid ‘90s with founder Roger Blevins Jr. and five other University of North Texas Jazz Studies students. “Obviously, there wasn’t a lot of classic soul being played around campus,” Blevins said. “People around the dorms just took to it and the ball started rolling. We were good friends playing music we loved. That’s a good recipe.” The band’s sound is a mixture of soul, blues, funk and a throwback to old Motown. The band has traveled nationally and internationally playing high-energy shows. Urdy, Mingo Fishtrap’s percussionist, said he started at

Southwest Texas State University as an Asian studies major. He joked that most people start out hoping to make music their full-time job and then choose something else as a fall back, but he was the opposite. Urdy said he returned to Austin, Mingo Fishtrap’s current home base, after touring with Monte Montgomery when he was asked to play a gig with the band. The gig occurred five years ago, and Urdy has been the permanent percussionist ever since. Urdy said while Mingo Fishtrap is organized and maintains a strong work ethic, the guys still have a good time. “It is a family thing,” Urdy said. “The guys all hang out, especially when we are out on the road. It is a lot of fun.” Urdy was the lone Bobcat in Mingo Fishtrap for four years until newcomer Zol Waterhouse joined the band. Waterhouse is on the verge of celebrating his one-year anniversary in the band. Waterhouse said he was a big fan of Mingo Fishtrap for several years before joining the band. A mutual friend

threw his name in the hat for the open trombone position, but he was doubtful they would call. “I listened to George Clinton and a lot of Earth, Wind and Fire. Mingo Fishtrap seemed like they were carrying on the tradition of ‘70s funk,” he said. “They were these young dudes just out of college, very talented musicians, and writing their own music in the style of what these bands had done in the ‘70s, but with a modern flair. To me, that was just so cool that there were young people who liked this music as much as I did.” Waterhouse said he is looking forward to playing at the Texas Music Theater again because he loves the venue. “When all of the guys walked in for the first time, we just dropped our stuff and looked around,” Waterhouse said. “It is one of those venues where the stage-side is huge. There is plenty of seating area but it isn’t an enormous venue where you feel pressure to fill it with 1,000 people. It is still intimate. It is pretty much anything you want in a place for a show.”

Texas State student opens up about homeless past year, when she and her mother made the decision to go to a shelter. This was the point when Sauceda realized she and her mother did not have a home. Sauceda said the Dwyer Avenue Center in downtown San Antonio took her and her mother in immediately and gave them their own room. The “dorm-sized” room was equipped with a bunk bed, toilet and bathtub built inside the wall, and a small stove, refrigerator and television. “Everything was miniature. It was so cool, but then again I was only 10,” she said. Though she and her mother had a place they could call home, Sauceda said she “shut down” and became introverted. She was accustomed to moving and did not believe in making friends anymore for fear of never seeing them again. However, Sauceda said life for them began to look positive when the shelter later Kristen Lefebvre, Staff Photographer moved the two into a discounted apartment Irene Sauceda, anthropology freshman, has struggled with homelessness most of her life.

This sense of stability gave Sauceda the chance to make friends, significantly improve her grades and participate in on-campus organizations, such as the Girl Scouts pilot program Gamma Sigma Girls. Sauceda said she learned about the college preparation process with the help of many San Antonio Independent School District faculty and staff. “I actually didn’t know about college until my junior year and that was the first time I checked my class rank,” she said. “…I didn’t know what going to college meant really. I was so oblivious to the fact that you could continue your education after high school. That just blew my mind. I just love learning so much.” Sauceda said though she graduated No. 7 in her high school class, it was difficult to convince her mother that college and living on-campus were the best choices for her. If Sauceda moved out of the apartment, her mother would have to leave and move in with her eldest daughter because of George Gervin Foundation rules applying to homeless families. “I felt so bad but I told her, ‘If you want to go anywhere, if you want to get any better than you are right now, then you have to let me go and try to help myself first. That way I can try to help you later,’” she said. “It was just really hard. She eventually understood and was really excited for me.” Since graduating high school, Sauceda said she is working for the National Association for Educating Homeless Youth as an advocate and would like to have a career in social work.

Bobcats prepare for home game against Techsters Friday

By Odus Evbagharu Sports Reporter Women’s soccer (5-9-1, 2-2-0) will come back to the Bobcat Soccer Complex and face a strong Louisiana Tech University team that posts a record of 10-3-1, 1-0-1 in conference play. This will mark the third encounter between Texas State and Louisiana Tech in three years. The series currently stands at 1-1, with the Bobcats getting the most recent win in overtime last year, 1-0. Louisiana Tech comes to San Marcos led by their standout junior forward Emily Brennan who leads the team with six goals and 12 points on the season. The Lady Techsters boast a 4-0-2 record outside of the confines of the Lady Techster Soccer Complex. Out of town, Louisiana Tech is outscoring their opponents 172, and has recorded five shutouts. “(Louisiana Tech) is a very confident team, and they’re having a great season,” Coach Kat Conner said. “(Louisiana Tech) will definitely lock you into one vertical, so we definitely have to make sure we don’t get ourselves locked in. (Louisiana Tech) takes away the long ball, so we have to make sure again that we can do more than just that.” The Bobcats are going into the game led by sophomore transfer Tori Hale, who currently leads the team in points with 13 and is tied for the team lead with four goals scored on the season. Freshman forward Lynsey Curry is holding her own in this early season of WAC play. She is currently second in the conference with goals scored and points, and is in the top ten in shots, shots per game and points per game. She is finding early success in her young collegiate career, but admits this is not high school soccer. “It’s definitely a higher pace. The ball moves quicker, so it’s just that much more intense and definitely a lot more aggressive, physical,” Curry said. “I’m getting the hang of it. Obviously, sometimes our competition is harder than others, and they know how to read our pace. And we have to change it and I have to adjust.” The Bobcats are entering into the game coming off a split on a west coast road trip, with a win against San Jose State University and a loss to the defending WAC champions Utah State. The girls hold a record of 3-4

in games played at the Bobcat Soccer Complex, but have outscored their opposition 11-7. The club hopes playing at home will help them get back on the winning track. “I think it will be good to be back at home,” said junior midfielder Sydney Curry. “We are always more pumped and ready to play for our fans, so it’ll be good to play in front of them and hopefully we can get a win for them.” The Bobcats currently sit third in the WAC. Louisiana Tech is sixth, but only three points behind Texas State. The Bobcats are only two points back of current conference leader Utah State University heading into this weekend’s matchup. The match between the Bobcats and the Techsters has heavy implications on the standings with only three weeks left in the regular season, and the WAC tournament right around the corner.

Previous success at tournament has team hopeful

By Sam Rubbelke Sports Reporter

The Texas State men’s golf team will head down to San Antonio for the Lone Star Invitational hosted by UTSA on Sunday, Oct. 14 and will compete through Tuesday, Oct. 16. The Bobcats have experienced a rough road schedule so far this year, but previous success at the Lone Star Invitational has the team hopeful. “It’s the same old thing, either you have it or you don’t. And right now, we don’t,” said Coach Shane Howell. “We haven’t gotten the results we want, but all it takes is one good week, and we’ve had success in the past at the Lone Star. I am looking forward to the challenge.”

For the past two years, the Bobcats have placed fourth at the Lone Star Invitational shooting a total of 870 in both 2011 and 2010. Last year, the Bobcats overcame winds gusting up to 40 miles per hour and finished one shot away from a tie for second. In the third round of play, the Bobcats fired the lowest score in the field by seven shots for a score of 294. Sophomore Juan Carlos Benitez shot the second lowest round of any golfer on the course last year by shooting two under par for a score of 70. His teammate, junior Stuart Smallwood (who was feeling under the weather during the 2011 tournament) scored even for a round of 72 placing him in a tie for fourth. Both were career best finishes at the time for Smallwood and Benitez.

Thus far this season in team competition, Texas State’s highest finish was a tie for eighth at the Ocean Course in South Carolina, their first tournament of the season. Playing just south on Interstate 35, the Bobcats have an opportunity to turn the season around. Howell will be looking to junior Juan Diego Plasencia for veteran leadership to take the Bobcats higher up the leaderboards Sunday and throughout the tournament. “We need Plasencia to take a greater leadership role,” Howell said. “He hasn’t played up to his potential so far this season.” Last year at the Lone Star Invitational, Plasencia shot 68, 76 and 77 for a total score of 221, finishing 30th. Last week, Plasencia finished tied for 46th individually, but did improve his score in every round of play.

Road trip pits Bobcats against three teams

Star File Photo

Texas State volleyball played in Colorado Oct. 11 to take on the University of Denver. The Bobcats are currently 5-8 on the road. By Cameron Irvine Sports Editor The Texas State volleyball team embarks on a three-game road trip the next six days, facing the University of Denver, New Mexico State University and San Jose State University Oct. 11-15. The Bobcats are no strangers to the road this season. Texas State played 10 of its first 11 games on the road to begin 2012, winning four of them. Texas State has outplayed its opponents by a set count of 11-2 since a change to a 6-2 formation and is looking to take that momentum out west. “At practice we’ve been really working on not making the little errors that we made at the beginning of the season,” said senior setter Caleigh McCorquodale. “It really helps when our hitters are really growing and getting more experience. It was the little errors at the beginning that were killing us. They are gaining confidence.” New Mexico State, who sports a 6-1 WAC conference record, trails conference leader Utah State by just half a game. However, Coach Karen Chisum understands the team cannot get ahead of themselves. “We are going to concern ourselves with the match right in front of us, and right now it’s Denver,” Chisum said. “They are one of the best blocking

teams in the conference. We just want to stay in a groove. We feel OK with ourselves.” New Mexico State will be the Bobcats’ opponent Saturday, their first meeting of the season. The Aggies will have to travel to San Marcos Nov. 8, part of Texas State’s final regular season home stand. Meredith Hays is currently second in the WAC in total points with 309.5. New Mexico State ranks in the top three in hitting percentage, assists, kills, blocks and service aces. One of the goals for Texas State during its west coast swing will be to continue to come together as a team. Alexandra Simms, who ranks fifth in kills with 191, is the only player in the top five in any category in the WAC. “If we are ever going to be successful, it’s going to be all the pieces of our puzzle working and fitting together at the same time,” said Amari Deardorff, junior right side hitter. “We are not a team that relies on one player, and we all need to work together to succeed.” Texas State rounds out the road trip with a rare Monday game in Calif. against the San Jose State Spartans. San Jose State is second in the conference in assists, kills and digs and has earned a 4-4 conference record up to this point, just a half game behind the Bobcats for fifth place.

Texas State goes for first homecoming game win since 2009

Star File Photo

Coach Dennis Franchione plans to lead the Bobcats to a 3-3 record this Saturday against Idaho. By Jordan Brewer Assistant Sports Editor The Bobcats, 2-3, are continuing to prepare for their Homecoming game against the University of Idaho by focusing on themselves after the loss to the University of New Mexico, 35-14. Senior tight end Chase Harper stresses the teammates cannot “hang their heads.” “It (starts) with me and then all the

way down to the opposite (side) tackle,” Harper said, regarding the offensive line struggles. “We have to be more physical and come off of the ball. I think there were times we felt sorry for ourselves and hung our heads (against New Mexico). We have to keep going and worry about the next play.” Idaho’s lone victory came from their most recent matchup against New Mexico State. Idaho, 1-5, beat the Aggies 26-18 at home. The Vandals have played

BCS-level schools including nationally ranked No. 9 LSU and North CarolinaChapel Hill, losing by a total of 139-14 in both games combined. Idaho’s best effort against its toughest competition came versus LSU. Idaho cut its deficit to 21-14 after forcing a red-zone interception with a little more than five minutes to go in the first half. It scored a play later. The Vandals scored a combined 16 points in the first two games of the season against FCS’s Eastern Washington University and Bowling Green State University. “(Idaho) is a little bit more pass and run,” said Coach Dennis Franchione. “They have a big offensive line, a couple of big backs, and their quarterback is a good, solid player. Their stats are a bit misleading. You need to look at their schedule before you make any determinations.” Idaho relies on a balanced attack, unlike most of Texas State’s opponents this season. Houston, Texas Tech and Stephen F. Austin were pass-heavy teams, while the University of Nevada-Reno and New Mexico relied more on the run. The Bobcats are coming off a game against New Mexico where they surrendered 361 yards rushing on 59 attempts for a 6.1-per-carry average. They were unable to stand up to a stout Aggie offensive line, although the Bobcats gave up one touchdown in the second half. The Vandals are led by their junior quarterback Dominique Blackman, who stands tall at 6 feet five inches, 255 pounds. Blackman possesses a different skill set than the Bobcats have encountered facing dual threat quarterbacks from New Mexico and Nevada in recent weeks. “I think it’s a lot easier to rush somebody that we know stands back there and we know does not want to run,” said junior defensive lineman Blake McCol-

loch. “The way their offensive line protects, we know we are going to be getting slides and one-on-ones. We just got to make sure we can win them.” The first-year starter has completed 65 percent of his passes in 2012. However, he has thrown 10 interceptions to go along with his eight touchdowns. He threw eight of those picks against LSU and North Carolina. Wide receiver Jahrie Level is the Vandals’ leading pass catcher, with Najee Lovett and Mike Scott as second and third respectively. Level has caught 30 passes on the year for 314 yards and two touchdowns. Senior running back Ryan Bass leads all rushers with 75 carries for 275 yards without a touchdown. The Vandals have one rushing touchdown so far this season, coming from Blackman on a oneyard rush. Defensively, the Vandals have recorded 11 sacks on the season. Junior defensive lineman Quayshawne Buckley leads the team with four sacks. Defensive ends Maxx Forde and Benson Mayowa have three sacks each. The Bobcats allowed five sacks against New Mexico. The Bobcats have allowed the 21st most sacks in 2012 with 12 in five games. Freshman cornerback Solomon Dixon leads the Vandals in interceptions with two. Senior safety Gary Walker had the 94-yard interception return against LSU and leads the team with 51 tackles and four pass breakups. The Bobcats would like to start the WAC portion of their schedule off on the right foot with a win on Texas State’s Homecoming. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. Saturday at Bobcat Stadium. The Bobcats have not won a Homecoming game since 2009 when Texas State defeated SFA 28-7. Twitter: @jbrewer32


Oklahoma to host Bobcats in tournament By Eddie Baty Sports Reporter On Oct. 15-17, the Texas State women’s golf team will travel to the University of Oklahoma to play on the Jimmie Austin Golf Course in the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic. The Jimmie Austin Course will also host one of three NCAA Regional tournaments on May 9-11, dates that the Bobcats would like officially circled on their calendar as a week of competition. The women have been competing at a high level through their first two tournaments, notably finishing first by 24 strokes in the Chris Banister Golf Classic. The team’s level of success has earned the Bobcats their highest ranking in history—28th nationally—in rankings released on Oct. 3rd by Texas State will look to benefit from strong individual performances overseas from senior Krista Puisite and sophomore Iman Nordin, who competed in Turkey in the World Amateur Team Golf Championship. Many factors can affect an individual’s psyche and confidence. Coach Mike Akers stressed that maintaining his team’s mental strength is one of his most important goals. “Most of the team has played on the OU course at least once, and a lot of them have had great success there,” Akers said. “We’ll need to build some confidence for regionals.” To prepare for a high level course like Jimmie Austin, Akers took the team to San Antonio last Friday on Oct. 5 to a more difficult course in the area in order to make OU’s course less of a surprise for the team. Despite this extra preparation, Puisite is not worried about a difficult course affecting the team. “So many golfers on our team are international,” Puisite said. “We’re used to the different courses.” Preparation will not be much different for the team going into the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic, otherwise known as the OU Invitational, but the stakes are higher. Akers said he feels that they have been adequately prepared and are confident enough to outperform the other notable women’s golf programs participating, including OU, Texas Tech University, fellow WAC member the University of Denver and the University of Notre Dame.

Coaches balance Homecoming traditions with game preparations By Cameron Irvine Sports Editor Homecoming’s importance ranges for different people. Some students and faculty value Homecoming and all of the traditions, while others would rather just sit at home. Head coaches of Bobcat sports are no different. Volleyball coach and alumna Karen Chisum enjoys the traditions of Homecoming more than others, but unfortunately can only enjoy them when her team is at home. Even then, preparation for her group of players takes time away from otherwise fun Homecoming traditions. “Coaching volleyball, it depends on what weekend it is,” Chisum said. “If we are at home, I’m going to all the activities that I can.” Women’s basketball coach Zenarae Antoine remembers her school’s Homecoming traditions fondly. A graduate of Colorado State, she was a three-year starter in basketball and played for the Rams from 1994-1998. “Being at Colorado State, it always revolved around football,” Antoine said. “As a student athlete, one of the most exciting things I did was that we participated in the parade. It was a lot of fun. We were on a fire truck and passed out candy. It was an exciting time for me.” For soccer coach Kat Conner, soccer always seems to conflict with Homecoming, both in her playing days at Hardin Simmons and as coach of the Bobcats.

“I have always been playing or preparing for a game,” Conner said. “I don’t get to experience Homecoming here at Texas State, but it would be a lot of fun to see that soap box derby.” Chisum graduated as a Bobcat in 1972 and some things about Bobcat Country just never change. “I lived up in Beretta Hall as a student, and we were right there by the Soap Box Derby that was in the same place, even back in 1970,” Chisum said. “I was always involved in school spirit and played softball and tennis, spring sports, so I did have time.” Coach Dennis Franchione is more about making sure his team is taking care of business. “I think (Homecoming) has got some specialness to it,” Franchione said. “For us, it’s business as usual. Homecoming is not about the football game. The football game is part of Homecoming. We understand that it’s special for our campus and students. We are glad. We realize that former students come back, and it may be a special game for them. We are glad for that, and we appreciate the occasion but we got to stay focused on what we got to do. And that’s getting ready to do our business at six o’clock.” Every one of the Bobcat coaches will be hard at work this weekend, in or out of town, but Homecoming memories will reside with them.
