REBELS OFF THE COURSE


REBEL HOME COURSES

One of UNLV’s home courses is Rio Secco Golf Club was designed and built in 1997 by golf course architect Rees Jones. When Rio Secco opened in 1997 Golf Digest and Golf Magazine voted it among the top 10 new courses. In 2007 Golfweek America's 100 Greatest Resort Golf Courses. The course was voted the No. 1 public access course in Nevada by the Las Vegas PGA membership poll along with many other awards. Rio Secco lays at the foothills of the Black Mountain Range 13.5 miles southeast of the Las Vegas Strip.

Located 20 minutes south of Las Vegas in Boulder City, the 27-hole layout of Boulder Creek has oasisthemed holes featuring palm trees, beach bunkers, lakes and waterfalls. Arroyos are artfully woven into the fabric of the course. Desert holes are bordered by the area’s unique playable sand. The course will host both the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown (Oct. 26-28) and the UNLV Spring Invitational (March 8-10).


WINNING TRADITION

UNLV won three consecutive Mountain West Conference titles, beginning with the Rebels’ first title in 2004 (left). They celebrated again in 2005 (middle) and once more in 2006 (right). Although the UNLV women’s golf program is entering just its ninth year, the Rebels have quickly developed a strong tradition that would rival most programs in the country. The Rebels have won 12 tournaments in Missy Ringler’s seven years at the helm, including three straight Mountain West Conference titles (2004-06) and four straight BYU Dixie Classics (2003-06). During that time Ringler has won two MWC Coach of the Year awards (2004 and 2006) while coaching three All-Americans, three MWC medalists, three Freshmen of the Year and three Players of the Year. Sunny Oh, Da Sol Chung and Therese Koelbaek have been named All-Americans, and Koelbaek and Oh were two-time honorees. Oh, Chung and Elena Kurokawa, took home both MWC Tournament medalist honors and Player of the Year accolades. Koelkbaek, who was named the league's top rookie in 2008, has garnered back-to-back honorable mention All-America awards. Rebel senior Natasha Krishna won the Indiana Invitational last season, becoming the fourth student-athlete to win at least two tournaments in their career. Koelbaek won two tournaments during the 200708 season, including sharing medalist honors at the 2008 NCAA West Regional, becoming just the second Rebel to win twice in one season. In all, seven different Rebels have won a total of 12 tournaments in the program's history. UNLV has appeared in three NCAA Championships, including posting a school-best 16th-place finish at the 2008 national tournament. That followed a third-place finish at the 2008 NCAA West Regional, the second-best finish in program history, and the Rebels extended their regional appearance streak to seven in 2009. Several former players have carried that success from UNLV to the pro tour, and Oh competed in two events as a rookie on the LPGA tour in 2009. Oh parlayed her success on the Duramed Futures Tour, (winning the 2008 Bright House Networks Open for the first professional tournament win by a Rebel) to earn a spot on the grandest stage in women's golf. There are currently three former Rebels on the Futures Tour: Kurokawa, Hwanhee Lee and Seema Sadekar.

STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING

Power Behind The Program UNLV's strength and conditioning program, under the guidance of John Grieco, is geared toward developing student-athletes' athletic potential through a personalized program that includes strength, speed, flexibility, conditioning and nutrition. Benefitting from an individuJodi Sabataso alized conditioning regimen impleStrength & Conditioning mented by a staff of five strength coaches, Rebel players follow a year-round system stressing the development of strength, power, speed and plyometrics. "UNLV develops its student-athletes on a one-on-one basis," Grieco said. "Players are not simply handed a regimen to follow, rather our staff utilizes an individualized day-to-day program." Grieco and his assistants are responsible for the yearround training of men and women student-athletes from all 17 varsity sports. The strength and conditioning development for women's golf is the responsibility of Jodi Sabataso. Complete with three offices, two restrooms and storage, the 8,500-square-foot deck features free weights, power racks and Olympian platforms. UNLV's facility houses more than 60 weight stations and Hammer Strength Machines. The 1,200-square-foot second level offers stretching and aerobic area catered to each sport. The room also features a premium sound system to further enhance the workout experience.

ATHLETIC TRAINING

The Finest Care Providing the best possible preventive and rehabilitative care, the UNLV women's golf athletic training staff is headed by Director of Athletic Training Kyle Wilson. Made possible by a generous gift of $1.5 million by Marilyn and Si Redd, the athletic training facility incorporates the total scope of sports medicine over an 8,500-square-foot area. Kyle Wilson Aside from five staff offices, a rehabilitation Athletic Training room houses a dozen pieces of equipment including Cybex stationary bicycles, stair machines and treadmills, all under a natural skylight. The largest area features a dozen tables to offer student-athletes various treatments throughout the day. Taping, padding and bracing all take place in another all-inclusive room. Finally, an aquatic therapy room features three above-ground whirlpools surrounding a 10-feet deep pool for rehabilitative exercises. All of these features make it possible for UNLV student-athletes to rehabilitate injuries without ever needing to leave the Lied Athletic Complex. Other amenities include a physician's office and exam room to provide daily medical service for student-athletes. A drug-testing facility also is part of the new complex. This expedites medical care because the student-athletes health care is self-contained. Also, UNLV's academic program and its student athletic trainers benefit from a sports medicine library, study room and conference facility. "Aside from being four times larger than our former facility," says Kyle Wilson, UNLV's Director of Athletic Training. "This is one of the top complexes in the nation because of the versatility it offers to service student-athletes in every area of sports medicine. We're now more efficient, more accessible and more effective in preventing and rehabilitating athletic injuries."

COMMISSIONER CRAIG THOMPSON Craig Thompson was the Mountain West Conference’s first employee when he was named Commissioner on Oct. 15, 1998. Ever since, Thompson has navigated the newest NCAA Division I conference through the everchanging landscape of intercollegiate athletics. As the league enters its 11th season of competition in 2009-10, Thompson continues to create and improve the opportunities for MWC institutions and student athletes to be successful both academically and athletically. Progressive in its approach, the MWC has flourished under the guidance of Commissioner Thompson and continues to cultivate opportunities for student-athletes to compete at the highest level, while fostering academic achievement and sportsmanship. He has been instrumental in negotiating nearly $230 million in television revenue, directed the league through expansion and has been an innovator in the postseason bowl structure as MWC teams have participated in five inaugural bowl games. His leadership and vision have helped the conference enhance its television revenue and exposure through revolutionary agreements with CBS College Sports Network (formerly CSTV) and Comcast to become the first major collegiate athletic conference to launch a dedicated sports channel featuring exclusive programming around its nine athletic programs. Thompson has been instrumental in strengthening the position of the Mountain West in the current Bowl Championship Series (BCS) structure. In 2006, he spearheaded an effort that resulted in better access for the MWC and more than doubled the annual BCS revenue on an annual basis for nonautomatic-qualifying conferences. The MWC has been steadfast in its efforts to find a way to make the BCS system fair for all universities. Through its first 10 years of competition, the MWC has participated in 36 bowl games. In 2007, the MWC posted the best winning percentage among the 11 conferences that make up the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision and claimed the 2007-08 ESPN Bowl Challenge Cup for the second time in four years. The MWC has sent a record five teams into postseason action both of the last two seasons (2007-08) and over the past five campaigns boasts the best winning percentage in bowl games among FBS conferences. Prior to his current role, Thompson served as the commissioner of the Sun Belt Conference for nearly eight years and as the only commissioner of the American South Conference prior to the merger of the two leagues in 1991. Thompson graduated from the University of Minnesota with an undergraduate degree in journalism. He and his wife, Carla, have a son, Ted, and a daughter, Emma.

BIRTH OF A CONFERENCE The Mountain West Conference was conceived on May 26, 1998, when the presidents of eight institutions — Air Force, Brigham Young, Colorado State, New Mexico, San Diego State, UNLV, Utah and Wyoming — decided to form a new NCAA Division I-A intercollegiate athletic conference. The split from the former 16-team WAC re-established continuity and stability among the membership within the new league and signaled the continuation of its tradition-rich, long-standing athletic rivalries. Five of the MWC’s nine members have been conference rivals since the 1960s (BYU, Utah, New Mexico, Wyoming, Colorado State), while San Diego State (1978) and Air Force (1980) were longtime members as well. UNLV entered the fold in 1996 and TCU began its first year of competition in 2005-06, completing the membership in the MWC as it stands today. From its inception in 1999, the Mountain West Conference has been committed to excellence in intercollegiate athletics, while promoting the academic missions of its member institutions. The Colorado Springs-based league is noted for its geographic diversity. Some of the most beautiful terrain and landscapes in the nation can be found within Mountain West boundaries, including the majestic Rocky Mountain range, which borders four MWC schools (Utah, BYU, Air Force and Colorado State). The high plains of Wyoming (elevation 7,220 feet – the highest Division I campus in the nation) contrast with the desert city of Las Vegas (the fastest growing metropolitan area in the West) and the Pacific Ocean locale of San Diego State. The southwestern flavor of New Mexico complements the western heritage and culture of Fort Worth, Texas, home of the MWC’s newest member, TCU.

UNLV women’s golf head coach Missy Ringler can’t help but be excited for her eighth year guiding the Rebels, a program that looks to entrench itself in the top 25 and become a household name in collegiate golf this season. Consider the fact that Ringler returns all five starters from last season’s lineup, a group that includes a two-time All-American and a three-time All-Mountain West Conference performer, along with adding one of the most talented freshman in the country, and it is easy to see why she is grinning each day at the office. The rest of the golf world has also taken notice of the Rebels, with Golfweek ranking UNLV at No. 18 in its preseason poll, the program’s third-highest spot to open a season. But with all that talent comes high expectations. Ringler is not one to shy away from those, rather embracing and using them to help push her team. “I expect to contend for a conference championship, perform well at a regional and to get back to the NCAA Championships,” Ringler says. “I think from top to bottom, this is one of the most talented teams I have had and I am excited for this season.” Headlining the Rebels this year is junior Therese Koelbaek, who is already one of the top players in program history and looking to cement her status as one of the nation’s elite competitors on the links. Named to Golfweek’s Top-50 Players to Watch entering the 2009-10 campaign, Koelbaek has earned honorable mention All-American honors both of her first two years on campus. She put together a strong sophomore season that saw her post six top-10 finishes while her scoring average of 73.24 was second in the Mountain West Conference. During her rookie season she won two events, including sharing medalist honors at the 2008 NCAA West Regional, and she was named the MWC Freshman of the Year. Along with Koelbaek, the Rebels' regular lineup this season should include senior Natasha Krishna, a three-time All-MWC selection, junior Alejandra Guacaneme, sophomore Kristen Schelling and freshman Ellis Keenan, a talented import from England. Krishna is among the all-time Rebel leaders in several categories, including ranking among the top five in career scoring average and rounds played, while Guacaneme has played in every tournament since her freshman year at UNLV. There is plenty of talent beyond that five, paced by sophomore Bethany Glassford, who played in 27 rounds as a rookie, including the 2009 MWC Championships and NCAA West Regional. UNLV senior Melissa Mabanta, junior transfer Mandi Incorvaia and sophomores Victoria Oros and Stephanie Whatley are also capable of pushing for time in the Rebel top five. It will be up to Ringler and her assistant, Amy Bush, who is entering her fourth year with the team, to maximize that talent and guide the Rebels to their fourth NCAA Championships berth in the program’s nine-year history.

Koelbaek appears primed to make the leap and become one of the top collegiate players in the country heading into her junior season, and the native of Hotle, Denmark, already has her named etched all over the Rebel record book. She put together a strong sophomore season that saw her post six top-10 finishes, while her scoring average of 73.24 was second in the Mountain West Conference and the second-best mark in school history. Koelbaek was at her best during the 2009 Las Vegas

16

Collegiate Showdown, shattering the Rebel record for low tournament to par with a scintillating 16-under 200, one shot short of the NCAA Record. That included back-to-back rounds of 6-under 66, the lowest rounds to par in program history, and overall Koelbaek has fired nine of the 16 lowest sub-par rounds in the record books. A fine student in the classroom as well, Koelbaek was named to the National Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar team for the second straight year, while also earning Academic All-MWC and MWC Scholar-Athlete accolades. The scary thing for opponents is that Ringler believes that Koelbaek can only get better. "Therese is such a solid player both athletically and mentally,” Ringler said. “She is a two-time All-American, both on the course and in the classroom. We will look for her to be our leader again this year." Krishna has been a model of consistency for the Rebels since she stepped on campus three years ago, having posted scoring averages of 74.9 or better in every season on the course. Last season she posted a career-best 74.17 scoring average, which was third in the league, and she won the Indiana Invitational, the second time in her career she earned medalist honors. Ringler expects Krishna to once again earn all-league honors while challenging for MWC Player of the Year honors during her senior campaign. "Natasha is such a steady player and has consistently been someone we look to as a counter and a leader on the course,” Ringler says. “She demonstrates such patience and has been taught the game of golf extremely well from her time on the national team in New Zealand" A fiery competitor who brings a lot of flair to the course, Guacaneme has steadily improved during her two seasons while playing in every tournament since arriving in Las Vegas from Colombia. Guacaneme has lowered her scoring average each of the past two seasons and was named to the NGCA All-American Scholar team, along with earning Academic All-MWC and MWC Scholar-Athlete honors. Last season she carded four sub-par rounds and one top-10 finish, coming in seventh at the Wave Invitational with a 3-over 147 for the best placing of Guacaneme’s career. "Ale has been such a consistent player for us from day one,” Ringler says. “She has never missed a tournament for us as a Rebel. She is very focused and a strong competitor, and she is a complete student-athlete as well, having earned academic All-America honors twice." Schelling made an impact right away as a freshman, as she was one of two Rebels to play in all 32 rounds last year as a rookie while finishing with the fourth-best scoring average on the team. That appears to just be a glimpse of what the talented player is capable of. She posted two top-10s and one top-20 finish with a scoring average of 76.97, and she was at her best at the end of her rookie season by tying for ninth, 14th and 10th in three of the final four tournaments. "Kristen brings a lot to this team,” Ringler says. “She is a fierce competitor and she gives 110% to everything she does. She will be a big contributor for us again this season." Mabanta is the other senior on the team and the veteran has played in 55 career rounds, including 14 last season when she posted a scoring average of 80.36, the secondlowest of her career. She competed in the 2008 MWC Tournament as a sophomore and has the ability to play herself into the lineup during her final year of eligibility. www.unlvrebels.com


"Melissa definitely has a shot at making the lineup this thi year,”” RingRi ler says. “She has been in the top five in previous years and we will be looking to her for senior leadership on this team." Glassford is a talented local player from Coronado High School who contributed as a freshman, playing in 27 rounds, including the 2009 MWC Championships and NCAA West Regional. She posted one top-10 finish, tying for eighth at the Wave Invitational, and overall she had a 78.74 scoring average. Also a talented student, Glassford earned a spot on the National Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar team, as well as being named to the Academic All-MWC Team and a MWC Scholar-Athlete. “Bethany is such a good ball striker,” Ringler said. “It is amazing to see how far she can hit it. She worked extremely hard over the summer and will be competing to be one of our top five at every tournament." Oros made her debut on the links last year for UNLV following a redshirt season, and the sophomore played in 11 rounds and had a scoring average of 83.27. A long hitter off the tee, Oros has the ability to post low scores but needs to become more consistent on the course. "Victoria is a strong player,” Ringler says. “We need to get her scores a bit more consistent but she is very coachable and willing to learn, and that's what every coach asks for." Another sophomore who is a local product is Whatley, who prepped at Silverado High School and played in 11 rounds as a rookie after walking on to the program. She had a scoring average of 82.91, and that included a pair of rounds in the 70s at the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown. Whatley also was named a MWC Scholar Athlete. "Stephanie worked really hard over the summer on her game and it has shown,” Ringler says. “She is a lot more confident on the golf course and her game has improved tremendously."

Ringler welcomes two newcomers to the team this season in Keenan and Incorvaia, and both instantly add depth to the lineup while possessing the ability to play in the Rebels’ starting lineup. Keenan is a decorated import from England, having won four tournament titles last year while being ranked as high as No. 7 in the junior golf rankings and No. 20 in England's women’s amateur rankings. Keenan won the Surrey Junior State Championship by 16 shots in April, and also won two Ladies Order of Merit Counting events as a junior. She also took home top honors at the Hampshire Rose while setting the course record, and also earned medalist honors at

"We are extremely pleased to have Ellis join our program,” Ringler says. “She is such a great player and she has had a lot of success over in England, which I am sure will carry over here. She is a team player and I expect her to make an immediate impact in the lineup.” Incorvaia transfers in from Southern Utah, and the native of Las Vegas returns home after playing for the Thunderbirds for two seasons. A two-year letterwinner, she lead SUU in scoring average as a freshman and won the 2008 Utah Match Play Championship, becoming the first student-athlete from SUU to win the state title. "We are very pleased that Mandi has decided to come home and play her last two years here at UNLV,” Ringler says. “She will definitely have a chance to make a impact.”

Again this year UNLV will be one of the only schools in the country to host two events, the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown and the UNLV Spring Invitational, and the pair of home tournaments are part of another competitive schedule for the Rebels. UNLV opens the season with Golfweek’s Conference Challenge on Sept. 13-15, which will be played just down the road from Las Vegas at the Primm Valley Golf Club in Primm, Nev., and the Rebels will be matched up with some of the top teams in the country. UNLV will then play in the Branch Law Firm/Dick McGuire Invitational (Sept. 19-20), Windy City Collegiate Classic (Oct. 5-6) and the Stanford Fall Intercollegiate (Oct. 16-18). The Rebels will close the fall portion of their schedule by hosting the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown, which will be held at Boulder Creek Golf Club on Oct. 26-28. Following the winter break, UNLV will return to the links at the Wildcat Invitational in Tucson, Ariz., on Feb. 22-23, the first of four spring tournaments the Rebels will play in before the 2010 postseason. Trips to the Bruin/Wave Invitational (March 1-3) and the MountainView Collegiate (March 26-27) will be sandwiched around the UNLV Spring Invitational on March 8-10, which is also scheduled to be played at Boulder Creek Golf Club. The 2010 MWC Championships will be played Fort Ord Golf Club in Monterey, Calif., on April 15-17, followed by the NCAA Regionals on May 6-8 and then the NCAA Championships in Wilmington, N.C., on May 18-21. “We have a very good schedule and the fact that we are hosting two tournaments again this year is great,” Ringler said. “Our schedule will challenge us throughout the year and prepare us to make a strong run in the postseason.”

The Ringler File

With three NCAA Championship appearances and seven straight NCAA Regional bids, UNLV head coach Missy Ringler has established a tradition of excellence in women's golf as she enters her eighth season as head coach of a program that is less than a decade old. Ringler's Rebels have won three Mountain West Conference Championships to go along with the NCAA Regional appearances, and she has coached squads that qualified for NCAA Championships in 2004, 2006 and 2008. The Rebels posted the best finish in team history in their latest trip to the national tournament, placing 16th overall. It is Ringler, the MWC Coach of the Year in 2004 and 2006, who has turned the program into one of the best in the Mountain West and has brought it to the cusp of joining the nation's elite. "UNLV's three NCAA Championship appearances and NCAA Regional streak can only be attributed to the hard work of Missy Ringler and her players," said UNLV associate athletic director Lisa Kelleher. "Missy is a tireless recruiter, technically sound in her coaching and puts her student-athletes’ needs on the course and in the classroom first on her priority list." Ringler's teams have won a total of 12 tournaments in her seven seasons and three Rebels - Sunny Oh (2003-04), Elena Kurokawa (2004-05) and Da Sol Chung (2005-06) have earned MWC Player of the Year honors. Oh was a two-time All-American and Chung was named a first team All-American in her freshman season. Oh and Chung were also both named UNLV Sportswoman of the Year. Therese Koelbaek was named a Golfweek Honorable Mention All-American for the second consecutive season last year, the third player to earn All-America honors under Ringler's tutelage. Again in 2009-10, UNLV will be one of the only programs - men or women - in the country to host two tournaments in a season. The Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown has become one of the nation's premier events, attracting many of college golf's best teams each fall, while the UNLV Spring Invitational has been held in March the past five seasons. A veteran in college women's golf with more than 18 years experience as a coach and player, Ringler was announced as UNLV's second coach on June 24, 2002. She came to Las Vegas from the University of Minnesota, where she spent three seasons as the Golden Gophers' head coach. Under her guidance, the Gophers managed a fourth-place Big Ten Conference finish and a NCAA regional appearance in 2001 and produced at least one team and individual victory in each of her three seasons.

• 2004 and 2006 Mountain West Conference Coach of the Year. • Coached three All-Americans and three Mountain West Conference Player of the Year award winners. • Teams have won 12 tournaments, including three Mountain West Conference Tournament titles. • Teams have made seven consecutive NCAA Regional appearances. • Teams have played in the NCAA Championships in 2004, 2006 and 2008. • A veteran of college golf, with more than 18 years experience as a player and coach.

A highly decorated player, the native of Bloomington, Ind., was a two-time All-Big Eight golfer at Iowa State. She helped lead the Cyclones to their first-ever league title in 1993 and was the first player in school history to play in every tournament of her career. In her senior year, she served as captain and earned team MVP honors. After her collegiate career, Ringler spent a year on the Futures Tour and attended the LPGA qualifying school before shifting her focus to the coaching arena. However, her accolades as a golfer and with eight varsity letters while competing in five different sports during her high school career helped earn her kudos as Monroe County's (Ind.) Athlete of the Century, chosen by the readers of the Bloomington Herald-Times. At one time she held the record at Edgewood High School for the 800, 1,600 and 3,200-meter run as well as the school's cross country record. Playing the point guard position, she led her team to the Sweet 16 of the 1990 Indiana High School Basketball Tournament. Ringler was also inducted into the Bloomington Golf Hall of Fame in 1997 after winning four consecutive city championships from 1991-94. She secured her first coaching job in 1997, overseeing the varsity boys' team at Edgewood High School in Ellettsville, Ind., to a 38-20 record. Ringler departed the following season, accepting her first collegiate coaching position at Washington State. She spent two years as both an assistant and interim head coach for both the Cougars' men's and women's programs. Ringler regained her amateur status in 2000 and has found her way back to competitive golf. She competed in the 2002 Women's Trans National in Lincoln, Neb., and advanced to the championship flight before losing in the first round. As an amateur she has competed in the U.S. Women's Amateur and U.S. Women's Public Links, where she lost in the semifinals of the 1993 championship. She finished third in the 1994 Indiana Women's State Amateur and sixth in 1992 and 1993. She won the Nevada Women's State Amateur Championship for a second time in 2007. Ringler won her first state amateur crown in 2003, the first year she lived in the Silver State. The former Melissa Arthur, Ringler and her husband, Lance, are proud parents of a son, Landon (6). The family lives in Henderson with their niece, Shea (17), and their dog, Gus. The Ringler family: Lance, Missy, Landon, Shea and their dog, Gus.

No less than three national championships were celebrated as part of last fall’s UNLV Athletics Hall of Fame ceremonies held on Sept. 19, 2008. Five former Rebel players (including the 17th football honoree all-time), one longtime head coach and a distinguished contributor joined two record-setting teams in being inducted. Born in 1987, UNLV’s Athletic Hall of Fame will now grow to 96 members strong. Under the hall’s bylaws, former studentathletes must have completed their eligibility at least 10 years earlier to be selected. Coaches and administrators must have stopped working at the University five years previous. All classes now enter on a biennial basis. TIM BLENKIRON (1994-97) was one of the best doubles players in school history and paired up with Luke Smith to win the 1997 NCAA Doubles Championship, becoming one of six individual national champions at UNLV. The 1997 All-American was a member of three Big West Conference champion squads. JOE KRISTOSIK (1995-98) was UNLV football’s first consensus first team All-American after being a four-year starter as a punter for the Rebels. He turned in one of the best seasons at his position in college football history as a senior in 1998 while leading the nation with an average of 46.2, which was the second-highest in NCAA history for a punter with at least 75 attempts. KIM RONDINA (1994-97) was the greatest slugger in UNLV softball history and its only two-time conference MVP. She was named first team All-America in 1995 and third team in 1996 and ‘97. Helping the Rebels to three NCAA tournament appearances, including one trip the Women’s College World Series, Rondina still holds 13 single-season and career batting records. LUKE SMITH (1994-97) stands as the only multiple NCAA champion in UNLV athletics history after winning the 1997 national title in singles and doubles. A three-time All-American, he also was a 1996 NCAA Doubles Semifinalist. Smith was a member of the 1997 Davis Cup Team for his native Australia and twice reached the fourth round of the Australian Open in doubles.

MARIANNE VALLIN (1994-97) becomes the first UNLV women’s tennis player to enter the hall of fame.
