2012 OUTLOOK

The 2012 UNLV Volleyball team looks to build upon the success that its predecessor had in the Mountain West Tournament. Last year’s edition entered the conference’s end-of-season soiree as the seventh seed and wound up in the championship match after it defeated the second-seeded (San Diego State) and third-seeded (TCU) teams in its first two outings. Cindy Fredrick, who is in her second season at the helm of the Rebel program and 25th as a collegiate head coach, returns eight letterwinners from the 2011 season. More importantly, all eight of those student-athletes were contributors; six of which were starters. This year’s strength will be the continuity supplied by the return of Madeline Westman and Candice Thomas in the middle; Sekola Falemaka and Daryn Glenn on the outside; Allison Davies and Layne Wilson in the back row; and setter Stephanie Thelen. Westman (2011 All-Mountain West), Thomas (2011 MW All-Tournament) and Thelen (2011 MW All-Tournament) were tabbed to various postseason awards lists following last season. Best of all, the returners comprised the bulk of the totals tallied statistically for the 2011 squad. Overall, nearly 70% of the five key statistical categories return for the Rebels. UNLV’s largest percentage coming back is in assists at 95%, which is primarily influenced by the 1,153 helpers dished out by Thelen. Westman and Thomas loomed large at the net last year, which helped contribute to the 86% of blocks reappearing. Percentages for service aces and digs are both in the upper 70s – 79% and 76%, respectively – while kills round out the quintet with a 69%. Although this year’s team has eight familiar names returning, six newcomers joined the mix and pushed the roster size to 14. Siga Appelgate leads

the list of fresh faces to wear the Scarlet & Gray after a two-year stint at the University of the Pacific. Appelgate, a junior, joins a quintet of freshmen – Taylor Blackmun, Kinsey Caldwell, Bree Hammel, Ceannia Kincade and Tanja Ranilovic – to round out the Rebel roster.

OUTSIDE HITTERS Falemaka (junior) and Glenn (sophomore) are the lone returners on the outside for the Rebels, but will be joined by Appelgate, Hammel and Kincade. Falemaka saw action in 26 matches (87 sets) and compiled six double-doubles (all kill-dig combinations). She threw down 172 kills and notched 207 digs, while contributing 31 assists, 23 blocks and 13 aces. Glenn played in all 31 matches and 118 sets with five double-doubles (all kill-dig combinations) as a first-year player. She amassed 232 kills and finished second on the squad in digs with 260. She also pitched in 62 assists, 54 blocks and a teambest 30 aces. Appelgate, a transfer from the Big West Conference, participated in 45 matches in her two seasons playing for the Pacific Tigers, which saw her tabulate 78 digs, 66 kills, 17 aces, 17 blocks and nine assists. Hammel and Kincade also will see some playing time on the outside.

MIDDLE BLOCKERS The middle is probably the position with the most depth and experience on the court this season. Westman (junior) and Thomas (junior) both added to their top-10 rankings in the program’s singleseason and career record books with their 134 and 110 total block outputs last season. The duo will

also see Katlin Winters (redshirt sophomore) and rookie Tanja Ranilovic provide some help at the net. Westman, who ranks fifth overall in career total blocks and sixth in both hitting efficiency and assisted blocks, played in all 31 matches and 123 sets. She led the team in hitting efficiency (.290), total blocks (134) and assisted blocks (112), while coming in second in kills (286) and solo blocks (22). Thomas sits sixth overall in career blocks after playing in 31 matches and 123 sets last year. She led the team in solo blocks (23), while ranking second in total blocks (110) and assisted blocks (87). She was third in kills (236). Winters saw action in six matches and 15 sets, which produced 12 kills, nine blocks and five assists. Ranilovic comes to UNLV after developing her game in Serbia.

SETTERS Thelen became the team’s primary setter last season after only playing in five matches during her freshman year. In 2011, her assist total was the sixth-most recorded in a single season by a Rebel, and the figure helped propel her to the same position in UNLV’s career book (1,263), as well. Thelen notched a team-best 10 double-doubles (all assist-dig combinations) last season. Besides her astonishing assist tally, she recorded 245 digs, 86 kills, 81 blocks and 21 aces. She will be joined by Caldwell, a newcomer from Fredrick’s neck of the woods in Iowa.

THOMAS


2012 OUTLOOK DEFENSIVE SPECIALISTS The back row will see the return of Davies (sophomore) and Wilson (redshirt sophomore), while Blackmun adds some depth to the position. Davies played in all 31 matches and a total of 118 sets en route to notching the sixth-most digs (398) in a single season by a Rebel. She also contributed 33 assists, 17 aces and one kills as a freshman. Wilson, who sat out the 2012 season as a redshirt, contributed as a freshman last season, and she saw action in 21 matches and 70 sets. She notched 138 digs, 10 assists, three aces and two kills.

2012 SCHEDULE The Rebels have 29 matches on the docket with 12 of those contests occurring in four tournaments, two of which they will host. The schedule is loaded with five meetings with squads that made the 2011 NCAA Tournament – Colorado State (twice), Louisville, Miami and Middle Tennessee State. UNLV opens the season with six of its first nine

05 matches played in Las Vegas at the Cox Pavilion. The Rebels kick off the 2012 campaign at home in their own UNLV Invitational, which is scheduled for Aug. 24-25. The Scarlet & Gray will welcome Northern Arizona, The Citadel and CSU Bakersfield to the two-day, round-robin tournament. After hosting a trio of matches, the Rebels hit the road for a tourney hosted by the University of Portland. UNLV will face Idaho State on Aug. 31, before squaring off against Tennessee State and Portland on Sept. 1. UNLV returns home for its UNLV Classic on Sept. 7-8 with Gonzaga, Prairie View A&M and Texas Southern in attendance. The Rebels close out the four-week tournament run in Louisville, Ky., at a two-day affair on Sept. 14-15 hosted by the University of Louisville. All three of UNLV opponents – Louisville, Miami and Middle Tennessee State – that weekend made an appearance in the 2011 postseason.

After playing 12 contests in a one-month span, UNLV's schedule will conclude with 17 matches spread out over two months. All but one of those matches - Utah Valley on Sept. 28 - will come against Mountain West competition in home-andaway meetings. Conference action begins with road trips to Air Force and Boise State on Sept. 20 and 22, respectively. From that point forward, the Rebels will only play once or twice per week and alternate home and away matches after every two outings until the middle of November when they will close out the regular season with three straight home contests against Fresno State (Nov. 16), Boise State (Nov. 21) and Air Force (Nov. 23).

New to the conference this season will be the addition of Fresno State and in-state rival Nevada, Reno, both formerly of the WAC. FS and UNR finished fourth and seventh, respectively, in the eight-team league last year.

THE COACHING STAFF CINDY FREDRICK

Head Coach Second Season at UNLV 26th Season Overall

Cindy Fredrick, who has 25 years of head coaching experience at the NCAA Division I level, was named the sixth head coach in UNLV volleyball history on Dec. 22, 2010. "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring Cindy on as our head volleyball coach," Livengood said upon Fredrick's hiring. "Having worked with her for many years, I'm sure she will be a great addition to the university community and our athletics department family. She will do a wonderful job advancing our women's volleyball program." In her first season at UNLV, Fredrick went 14-17 and led her squad to the championship match of the 2011 Mountain West Tournament. The Rebels entered the tournament as the seventh seed and racked up two quick victories - 3-0 win over #2 San Diego State and a 3-1 triumph over #3 TCU - before a loss to Colorado State in the finale. She guided Madeline Westman to a 2012 All-MW Team season, while Candice Thomas and Stephanie Thelen (setter) were recognized for their play during the conference tournament. Fredrick came to Las Vegas after spending the 2010 season coaching at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. She has also been the head coach at Weber State (1985-89), Washington State (1989-2004) and Iowa (2004-08). Over her career, she has led her squads to 10 NCAA Tournament appearances with the first occurring in 1988 at Weber State, followed by nine more at Washington State that also included a trip to the Sweet 16 and two to the Elite 8. Overall, she owns a 9-10 record in NCAA Tournament competition.

1975-76

Opened as a satellite campus in 1957, the southern regional division of the University of Nevada became Nevada Southern University in 1965 and finally evolved into University of Nevada, Las Vegas four years later when the Board of Regents granted it autonomy under the state's higher education system. Men's basketball was the first sport organized at UNLV, opening play in 1958 under head coach and athletic director Michael "Chub" Drakulich. Baseball, also coached by Drakulich, started in 1960 and football came to campus nearly a decade later when head coach Bill Ireland's squad went 8-1 in 1968. Women's club sports such as tennis emerged in 1960 under administrator Alice Mason, but basketball became the first women's varsity sport in 1974. UNLV currently sponsors seven men's and 10 women's athletic programs.

The logo lasted until the early 1970s when a group of black athletes came to Baepler, who was academic vice president at the time, and voiced its displeasure with having a mascot that had a connection with the wrong side of the Civil War. "They said it didn't feel right playing for a school with such a mascot...and I agree," said Baepler. "Southern Nevada has no real ties to the Confederacy so the change wasn't a big concern."

The student senate voted on a new mascot and the human Rebel logo was born. Initially, a Colonial-like Rebel soldier was the official logo and there was talk at one time of changing UNLV's nickname to Minutemen. Essentially there was no recognized UNLV mascot for about a half-decade spilling into the early 1980s. Enter Mike Miller, the award-winning local graphic artist who eventually became the creator of the cartoon man NICKNAME with a long moustache known as Hey Reb. Miller said The Nickname "Rebels" was given to UNLV athletic his inspiration for the logo was historical Nevada fronDrakulich: The Father of teams because the school, emerging from the shadow tiersmen from the 1800s such as John C.

"I just sketched out a little mountain man with a long coat that had some fringe on it."

In 1997, a more musremember the first official Rebel mascot cular version of Hey Reb, minus a musket, Beauregard. was introduced and a refreshed version was developed in 2006. Dressed in gray military field jacket and Confederate cap, Beau is a fanged, winking, black and white cartoon wolf. He came to be because the new school in Southern Nevada wanted to take a little jab at the Wolf Pack mascot of Nevada, Reno.

The first Rebel football team (1968) was the only squad that played as Nevada Southern University.

"UNLV was rebelling against the status quo and the two schools' mascots seemed to mimic the Civil War," said former UNLV president, the late, Don Baepler, who later directed the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Natural History on campus. "Reno had a northern looking wolf so we wanted a Confederate wolf."

Beauregard may not be prevalent in today's UNLV athletic events, but he's certainly not gone and forgotten. The original sketch of the wolf was converted into a mid-court painting for basketball games played in the old University gymnasium. Today, visitors can visit the black, white, scarlet and gray logo circle in its original position at what is now the Barrick Museum, which still uses the existing oak hardwood basketball floor to hold its exhibits.

COX PAVILION

The UNLV volleyball team received a new home in 2001 in the $16.8 million Cox Pavilion. The pavilion is a 78,300 square-foot, multi-purpose, state-ofthe-art venue connected to the Thomas & Mack Center on the UNLV campus. Cox Communications and the Thomas & Mack Center formed a partnership that brought the new facility to UNLV and the Las Vegas Community. As part of a $5 million agreement, Cox Communications secured the naming rights for the facility as well as opportunities for sponsorship and hospitality. Former UNLV President Dr. Carol Harter stated when it opened, “We are pleased that Cox, a relatively new member of the Southern Nevada corporate community, has chosen to take an active role in supporting both academics and athletics at UNLV. The new Cox Pavilion, like Cox’s donation of television equipment and their annual support for a new cable television education channel, will benefit the community in many ways.” The pavilion is a two-level structure. The ground floor features men’s and women’s locker facilities, player lounges and practice courts for basketball and volleyball. The top level is a multi-purpose venue with a seating capacity for 2,800 and features padded, retractable seating throughout. “The Cox Pavilion features the best volleyball venue in the country and our athletes love to play in the bright arena with the home crowd support,” said Allison Keeley, UNLV’s volleyball head coach. “The size creates an intimate viewing venue where our fans feel like they are part of the match. We appreciate the effort on the behalf of UNLV to showcase our team in such a spectacular setting.” PICTURED: Top: Outside view of the Cox Pavilion. Middle: Inside view of the Cox Pavilion.

32 FINAL SERVE The UNLV Rebels closed out its season with a Cinderalla-like run through the 2011 Mountain West Volleyball Championship. UNLV entered the three-day tournament as the seventh seed and worked its way to the championship match for the second time in program history. The Rebels swept past the second-seeded San Diego State Aztecs in straight sets (3-0) to advance out of the quarterfinal round. The Scarlet and Gray then rallied from a 1-0 deficit to knock off the third-seeded TCU Horned Frogs in the semifinals. Unfortunately, UNLV's magical run came to an end when it lost to the topseeded Colorado State Rams in the championship match. By virtue of reaching the tournament's finale, UNLV became the lowest seeded team to qualify for the MW Championship since the Utah Utes did so as the fifth seed in 2007. Coincidentally, the Rebels were the Utes opponent in that '07 championship match, which saw UNLV win its first and only MW title.

ALL-TOURNAMENT SQUAD The UNLV Rebels had two of its own, Candice Thomas and Stephanie Thelen (designated setter) named to the 2011 Mountain West Volleyball Championship All-Tournament Team following the squad's play in the three-day competition. Thomas led the Rebels in hitting efficiency with a .368 average and in kills with 35. She had at least six kills in all three matches and topped out with a career-best 20 vs. TCU (Nov. 19). Besides contributing offensively, Thomas had seven blocks and four digs. Thelen led UNLV in assists (109) and assists per set (10.90). She dished out 19 or more helpers in all three contests and tied her season and career high with 56 against TCU (Nov. 19). She also added 21 digs, nine blocks, seven kills and two aces.

WESTMAN EARNS ALL-MW UNLV's Madeline Westman was named to the 2011 Mountain West All-Conference Team, as selected by the league's eight head coaches.

2011 REVIEW (3.94, undeclared), Sekola Falemaka (3.06, undeclared), Daryn Glenn (3.46, undeclared), Taylor Richard (3.26, criminal justice), Stephanie Thelen (3.09, undeclared), Madeline Westman (3.90, communication studies) and Layne Wilson (3.70, hospitality management). Davies, Glenn, Richard, Thelen and Wilson are first-time honorees, while Falemaka and Westman were recognized last year, as well.

SPREADIN' THE KILLS

To be eligible for selection, student-athletes must have completed at least one academic term at the member institution while maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better, and be a starter or significant contributor on their athletic team.

GOING THE DISTANCE

THROWING DOWN ACES

The UNLV Rebels played a total of 31 matches in 2011 with 11 going to five sets. The 11 five-setters were a program high and surpassed the previous mark (eight) set three times (2003, '05 and '10). UNLV owned a 5-6 mark in marathon matches and started the year off 3-0 before it dropped six of its last eight. The Rebels reeled off wins against Morehead State (Sept. 2), Northwestern State (Sept. 3) and Southern Utah (Sept. 9) early in the season. They lost their first five-setter to Cal State Northridge (Sept. 10) before they regrouped with a win over Fresno State (Sept. 16). After that match, the squad lost four straight before they rebounded with a come-from-behind win at CSU Bakersfield (Oct. 23) to even its record at 5-5 on the year. Unfortunately, they lost their five-setter on the road to Boise State in the regular-season finale.

WINNING THE FIRST SET The UNLV Rebels owned a record of 11-3 when they've jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead after they claimed the first set of a match. The team's only losses came to Cal State Northridge (Sept. 10), San Diego State (Oct. 21) and Boise State (Nov. 12). Unfortunately, the team did not fare so well when they lost the first set. In that department, the team was 3-14 with the wins coming against Morehead State (Sept. 2), Eastern Washington (Sept. 10) and TCU (Nov. 19).

Westman led the Rebels in hitting (.323), total blocks (62) and assisted blocks (50) in conference play. She finished second on the squad in kills (135) and solo blocks (12). In 14 league matches, she threw down at least five kills 13 times and hit .250 or better in 12 outings. For the year, she led the team in all three blocking categories and hitting efficiency (.300) this season.

50 THIS IS THE MOUNTAIN WEST The Mountain West was conceived on May 26, 1998, when the presidents of eight institutions -- Air Force, BYU, Colorado State, New Mexico, San Diego State, UNLV, Utah and Wyoming -- decided to form a new NCAA Division I FBS intercollegiate athletic conference. The split from a former 16-team conference re-established continuity and stability among the membership within the new league and signaled the continuation of its tradition-rich, longstanding athletic rivalries. Three of the MW's eight original members have been conference rivals since the 1960s (New Mexico, Wyoming and Colorado State), while San Diego State (1978) and Air Force (1980) were longtime members as well. UNLV and TCU entered the fold in 1996 and the Rebels continued as one of the original eight institutions that formed the MW in 1999. With conference realignment sweeping the nation in recent years, the MW has been proactive in addressing membership changes. Boise State joined the Mountain West in 2011-12, followed by Fresno State and Nevada, Reno on July 1, 2012. Also on July 1, 2012, Hawai'i became a football-only member of the Conference. On May 4, 2012, the Mountain West announced the additions of San Jose State and Utah State as full-time members effective July 1, 2013. From its inception in 1999, the Mountain West has been committed to excellence in intercollegiate athletics, while promoting the academic missions of its member institutions. Progressive in its approach, the MW continues to cultivate opportunities for student-athletes to compete at the highest level, while fostering academic achievement and sportsmanship. The Mountain West is noted for its geographic diversity. Some of the most beautiful terrain and landscapes in the nation can be found within its boundaries, including the majestic Rocky Mountain range, which borders four MW institutions (Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State and New Mexico). The high plains of Wyoming (elevation 7,220 feet - the highest Division I campus in the nation) contrast with the desert cities of Las Vegas and Reno, home to UNLV and Nevada, Reno while Fresno State and San Diego State add a West Coast influence with their locations in Central and Southern California. The inclusion of the Hawai'i football program extends the Mountain West footprint to the beautiful islands in the Pacific Ocean. Mountain West members have participated in 51 bowl games under the league umbrella, including four appearances in BCS games. The MW has earned 61 postseason bids in men's basketball, including 33 NCAA Tournament appearances and two NIT Final Four berths. MW women's basketball has tallied 57 postseason slots, including 31 NCAA bids, five Sweet 16 appearances and one Elite Eight berth since 2000. The MW has produced 762 All-America selections among its 18 sponsored sports

51 CRAIG THOMPSON Mountain West Commissioner

Craig Thompson was the Mountain West'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 ever-changing landscape of intercollegiate athletics. As the league enters its 14th season of competition in 2012-13, Thompson continues to create and improve the opportunities for Mountain West institutions and student-athletes to be successful both academically and athletically. Since the Mountain West opened its doors on January 4, 1999, Thompson has been committed to excellence in intercollegiate athletics, while promoting the academic missions of its member institutions. Progressive in its approach, the MW 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. Thompson also has positioned the Mountain West for the future with the additions of Fresno State and the Nevada, Reno on July 1, 2012, and San Jose State and Utah State on July 1, 2013. Hawai'i also joined the league this year as a football-only member.

JAVAN HEDLUND Assoc. Commissioner Communications

Kim Melcher

Director Communications

His leadership and vision have helped the conference enhance its television revenue and exposure through revolutionary agreements with CBS Sports Network and Comcast to become the first major collegiate athletic conference to launch a dedicated sports channel featuring exclusive programming around its athletic programs. Thompson has been instrumental in strenghening the position of the Mountain West in the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) structrue. In 2006, he spearheaded an effort that resulted in better access for the MW and more than doubled the annual BCS revenue on an annual basis for non-automatic-qualifying conferences. The MW has been steadfast in its effort to find a way to make the BCS system fair for all universities. Through its 13 years of competition, the Mountain West has participated in 51 bowl games, amassing a 31-20 (.608) all-time record in those contests. Over the last eight seasons, the MW has captured the Bowl Challenge Cup four times and owns the best win percentage in bowl games among the 11 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 its merger of the two leagues in 1991.

Judy Willson

Assoc. Director Communications

Thompson graduated from the University of Minnesota with an undergraduate degree in journalism. Following graduation, he spent two years as assistant sports information director at Kansas State University. He then spent three years as director of public relations and promotions for the NBA's Kansas City Kings. Thompson and his wife, Carla, have a son (Ted) and a daugther (Emma).

With its Performing Arts Center, the campus is the cultural hub of Southern Nevada. World-class orchestras and soloists, dance and theater arts combine to provide a broad selection of concerts and stage productions. The Barrick Lecture Series and several campus organizations bring noted speakers to the University, and local and visiting artists show their works in the Donna Beam Fine Art Gallery. UNLV has excellent athletic facilities as well, many open for student and public use. Opened in 1957 as the southern regional division of the University of Nevada with a total of 28 students, UNLV now is home to more than 27,000 students coming from every county in Nevada, all 50 U.S. states and 88 countries. Much of UNLV’s tremendous expansion is the result of support from the Nevada Legislature and the state’s taxpayers. Private donors have played an important role as well. These gifts support new facilities and programs and, most important, provide the scholarship incentives that bring Nevada’s best and brightest student scholars to campus. UNLV operates an on-campus Center for Business and Economic Research, Center for Economic Education, Harry Reid Center for Environmental Studies (in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency), Desert Biology Research Center, Center for Survey Research, Nuclear Waste Transportation Research Center and other research and public-service centers. Offering 108 undergraduate programs and 137 graduate tracts, UNLV graduated a class of 5,500 last year. The University operates on a semester system and is a member of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, the Council of Graduate Schools, the American Council of Education and the Western College Association. All of the University’s academic programs are fully accredited by the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges, and many programs have received further accreditation from independent national accreditation bodies.

LIVENGOOD

Bringing with him a wealth of experience and the reputation as one of the nation’s top administrators, Jim Livengood was introduced as UNLV’s 11th full-time Director of Athletics on Dec. 17, 2009. He wasted no time getting to work, as less than two weeks later he hired Bobby Hauck as the 10th head coach in Rebel football history. Just three months after that it was announced that a new, state-of-the-art basketball practice facility, the Mendenhall Center, would be built and that stunning addition to the department was dedicated in January 2012. In spring of 2011, Livengood chose Dave Rice to be head coach of the Runnin’ Rebel men’s basketball team and the veteran AD has also overseen the hiring of new coaches in UNLV sports such as baseball, softball and women’s volleyball. This past June, the State Board of Regents approved a new contract for Livengood that will keep him running the department through at least December 2015. Livengood came to UNLV following a successful tenure of more than 15 years at the University of Arizona where he oversaw an athletics program that annually competed for championships not only in the Pac-10 Conference but also at a national level, maintained a high academic

standard for its student-athletes and continually operated its $43 million budget in the black. His fiscal leadership helped Arizona remain one of the lone black-ink athletics programs among a small handful of institutions that rely exclusively on generated funds and do not receive state-appropriated monies. During his time in Tucson, he served as the Pacific-10 Conference president, chair of the Pac-10 Athletic Directors Revenue Sharing Committee and a member of the conference’s Bowl Committee and Basketball Tournament Subcommittee. He also was a member of the Rose Bowl Management Committee, the NCAA Fellows program, NACDA President, and chair of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee, on which he served five years. His work at Arizona and its ascension on the national level earned him an Athletic Director of the Year Award from the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics in 2006 for Division I-A. Livengood initiated Campaign Arizona, which raised more than $130 million for athletic facility improvements and endowments while the Wildcats maintained a top-25 competitive record in the NACDA Directors’ Cup (formerly Sears Cup), including high rankings of sixth in 1993-94, fourth in 1994-95, seventh in 1995-96, sixth in both 1996-97 and 1997-98 and ninth in 2001-02. That record reflects success throughout Arizona’s broad-based program, highlighted by participation in the 1994 and 2001 NCAA Men’s Final Four and champions of the 1997 NCAA Men’s National Basketball Tournament. Arizona also won the 1994, 1996, 1997, 2001, 2006 and 2007 NCAA Women’s Softball College World Series titles, the 1996 and 2000 NCAA Women’s Golf title and the 2008 men’s and women’s NCAA Swimming Championships. Livengood is a member of the NCAA Fellows Program to mentor new athletic directors, has served as a member of the NCAA Peer Review Team from 1994-99, the NCAA Gender Equity Task Force, and the Women’s Committee on Athletics. He has been a member of the NACDA Preseason Football Games Committee since

2000 and was a member of the NACDA Strategic Planning Committee from 1999-2001. He served as NACDA president in 1998, and in 1999 was named Division I-A Athletic Director of the Year. He is also a member of the Division I-A Athletic Directors Association, having served as president of that association in 1998. Livengood spent six years as the Athletics Director at Washington State University from 1988-93 where he developed what is still widely regarded as a model gender equity program. In addition he laid the groundwork for a studentathlete wellness center that is regarded as one of the finest in the nation. Livengood began his administrative career in 1980 as the Associate Director for Development and Public Relations at Washington State before becoming the Athletics Director at Southern Illinois, a position he held until returning to Washington State. Born March 28, 1945, in Walla Walla, Wash., he received his bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University in 1968 and completed his fifth-year education requirement for teaching certification at Central Washington University in 1972. He taught and served as an assistant football coach and track coach at Moses Lake High School in Washington in 1968-69, and as head football and basketball coach and counselor at Ephrata High School in Washington from 197280 before moving into athletics administration. Jim and his wife, Linda, have two grown children, Michelle, a lawyer in Flagstaff, and Jeremy, who resides in Phoenix. Both children are University of Arizona graduates. Michelle earned her law degree in May 2000 and Jeremy graduated in December1999. The Livengoods are the proud grandparents of four: new grandson Dylan and twins Emma and Isabella (3), born to Michelle and her husband, Jack Murphy, who is the men’s basketball head coach at NAU; and another recent addition, grandson James, born to Jeremy and his wife, Megan, in 2011.

Class of 2012

EIGHT INDIVIDUALS, ONE TEAM ELECTED TO UNLV HALL OF FAME

Albrecht

Diaconescu

Frohlich

Miller

Seven different Rebel sports will be represented during ceremonies this fall as the UNLV Athletics Hall of Fame Class of 2012 will be honored Oct. 12. Six former Rebel standout players, one head coach and a distinguished contributor will join one team in being inducted the night before the Battle for the Fremont Cannon football game between UNLV and Nevada, Reno. Born in 1987, UNLV’s Athletics Hall of Fame will now grow to 114 members strong. Under the hall’s bylaws, former student-athletes 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. The winningest coach in UNLV tennis history, FRED ALBRECHT led the Rebel netters from 1974-83 and compiled a record of 230-80 for a winning percentage of .742. A longtime administrator on campus, Albrecht was called upon to serve as Interim Athletics Director in both 1995 and 2003 during searches for permanent replacements. He retired from UNLV in 2007 after 38 years with a final title of vice president for university and community relations. LORENA DIACONESCU is arguably the Rebels women’s swimming program’s most decorated athlete. She won three consecutive Conference Swimmer of the Year awards from 2000-02 while setting school records in six separate events. Diaconescu earned All-America in 2000 and was honorable mention one year later. Winner of eight MW individual crowns as well as seven relay titles, she was also a two-time Olympian for her home country of Romania. The highest-scoring basketball player in UNLV history – men’s or women’s – LINDA FROHLICH finished with 2,355 points and a 21.2 PPG average in her dominating hoops career. The native of Oldendorf, Germany, was named USBWA National Freshman of the Year in 1999, AP Honorable Mention All-America as a sophomore and junior and then Third Team as a senior. Those seasons also saw Frohlich win Mountain West Player of the Year honors three straight years from 2000-02 before going on to a pro career in the WNBA and overseas. Entering the Hall of Fame as a Distinguished Contributor is noted Las Vegas artist and illustrator MIKE MILLER. During the 1980s, Miller created and named the cartoon man with the long moustache known as “Hey Reb.” Miller was paid a single dollar for his work, which eventually helped UNLV vault to the top spot in college apparel licensing. Still the leading Runnin’ Rebel scorer in history, EDDIE OWENS was the emerging program’s second AllAmerican in men’s basketball when he was tabbed First Team by a pair of outlets as a junior in 1976. A magical se-

nior season saw him star as part of the so-called “Hardway Eight” team that gained fame by setting NCAA records for most points in a season, most 100-point games and most consecutive 100-point games en route to the school’s first Final Four appearance. JACINT SMION turned in a career in the water that rivaled any in school history. The Mountain West Swimmer of the Year three consecutive seasons earned All-America honors at the 2000 NCAA Championships while also being honorable mention in two relays. His fourth All-America finish came in 2002. Simon won 10 conference championships as an individual and one on a relay team and swam for his home nation of Hungary in the 2000 Summer Olympics. AMIE STEWART was a dominant pitcher for dominant softball program in the mid-1990s. A second team All-America selection as a senior in 1995, her 30-9 mark is still the school record for wins a season. She led her team all the way to the Women’s College World Series and tossed two complete games while finishing with a .95 ERA en route to becoming the only Rebel to be named to a WCWS All-Tournament Team. Arguably the top cornerback in school history, KEVIN THOMAS still holds numerous school and conference defensive records. The first player in school history to start 46 games, Thomas was the first defensive player from UNLV to earn All-America status in 26 years when he was named Third Team by Football News and Fourth Team by Sporting News. After helping his team win the Las Vegas Bowl as a junior, he became the program’s second three-time first team all-conference honoree and he was named the MW Defensive Player of the Year in 2001. The 1984 UNLV FOOTBALL TEAM was the first of two in school history to win a conference championship and its 11-2 overall record included a victory over Toledo in the California Bowl. Going undefeated in the PCAA, the talent-rich squad featured the conference Offensive Player of the Year in All-America punter/quarterback Randall Cunningham; the Defensive Player of the Year in lineman Aaron Moog; and the Coach of the Year in Harvey Hyde. Also being honored at the ceremony is the 2012 winner of the Silver Rebel Award -- former UNLV quarterback and longtime ESPN personality KENNY MAYNE.
