The 2009 season is one marked with opti-

mism and a fresh outlook as USC Upstate says goodbye to its provisional status in NCAA Division I and says hello to full DI membership for 15-year head coach Greg Hooks. The soccer program, along with the softball program, was chosen by the University to be fast-tracked into NCAA DI membership when the school announced the move of its athletics program in 2006. The result is that the men’s soccer program had to only spend two years playing as provisional members of DI and now enters a new phase in the evolution of the program with the opportunity for posteason A-Sun and NCAA tournament play. That’s part of the good news as Upstate enters the 2009 campaign looking to be one of six A-Sun teams to qualify for the conference tournament and a chance to play for the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The other good news is that a solid core of returning players will take the field to lead a crop of 14 talented yet young and inexperienced newcomers. Pat Regna was the team’s top goalkeeper a year ago until a serious infection ended his season prematurely after 11 games. Nick Buxton also returns for his fifth year in the program. Buxton’s season was ended after just three games due to a serious leg muscle injury. With Buxton, the leader in the back, gone for the better part of the season, Upstate was forced to play with young players in the back which resulted in Regna and the goalkeepers having to face a lot of shots. With Regna and Buxton returning to the unit, as well as newcomers and experienced returnees, the defensive unit should be much more solid this season. Hooks and assistant coach Gary Lynch looked to improve every spot on the field in recruiting while working with the returning players to become more consistent. The result is that every position on the field is either more experienced, more talented, or both. How that relates to success in 2009 is obviously a question mark. “I like what I have seen on the field so far,” said Hooks during preseason workouts. “I like how hard they are working and the improved talent level we have shown. What that means for the regular season is unknown. We have some returning players who are talented and have some experience, but we will have to rely on new players to make an impact as well. What we are looking for is progress in the quality that we put out on the field as we try to build the team into a competitive Division I program.” In addition to Regna and Buxton, Hooks will rely on returning starters Ben Brannan (defender), Timo Foerster (midfielder), Colin Francis (midfield), Hakeem King (midfield/forward) and Erkan Yildirim (forward) to lead the team and lend stability, something that has been drastically needed the last two seasons. Brannan is an experienced senior, while Foerster, Francis, King and Yildirim are sophomores who benefitted from significant time on the field a year ago. While the team will still largely be young, the

core players have experience on the pitch. Now for the bad news, half of the team have never worn a Spartan jersey. Adjusting to Hooks’ system and to each other is going to be crucial for the newcomers in order for them to make an impact, something Hooks has said is vitally important to the success of this year’s team. On a positive note, several of the newcomers are expected to push for significant playing time on the pitch, illustrating the program is moving in the right direction as Hooks builds a Division I program. Leading the group of new players are Maurice Beggs (forward), Isaiah Ferguson (midfielder), Porter Massey (defender) and Kareem Richardson (defender). All are expected to battle for starting positions while lifting the level of talent on the field for the Spartans in 2009. Injuries took its toll on Upstate in 2008 and while not the only reason the Spartans finished with a 2-15-1 overall record and a 1-7-1 mark in the A-Sun, it was significant. In all, Regna, Buxton, Peter Davis (goalkeeper), Jason McCabe (goalkeeper) Chad McCoy (forward), Chris McCoy (defender), and Philipp Soppa (defender) were sidelined or hampered with injuries throughout the season. While the Spartans have addressed needs for depth, Hooks can not afford to have the misfortune of similar injuries to strike the team this season. As Upstate enters the season, there isn’t one area that the Spartans can claim is the strength of the team. Hooks has a fairly level amount of talent from position to position. However, with seniors Regna, Buxton and Brannan on defense, the unit could be the first to assert itself. With Division I soccer so tough and the margin of victory so slim, the defensive unit is one that can make or break the season. Last year, Upstate lost four games by a single goal and seven by two goals or less. The key to 2009 is turning those close games into wins or ties instead of losses. “Division I soccer is so tough and the margin of error is so small that you have to be prepared to have all 11 guys on the field play every second of every game,” said Hooks. “Making the transition from Division II to Division I is a process and we are building our program.” Upstate will once again play a regionally tough schedule. The Spartans open the 2009 season like it ended the 2008 campaign, playing at Clemson. However, the game at Riggs Field is an exhibition game this year. The Spartans will face a difficult A-Sun schedule, one that will see Belmont, Florida Gulf Coast, Lipscomb and Stetson come to Spartanburg to play at County University Soccer Stadium. Upstate will hit the road in conference play at Campbell, East Tennessee State, Jacksonville, Mercer and North Florida. One difference from last year’s schedule is that the Spartans play five of their eight nonconference games in the friendly confines of County University Soccer Stadium.

2009 Season Preview byterian and crosstown rival Wofford will make appearances on campus, while the Spartans will travel to play non-league games at Davidson, High Point and UNC Asheville. •• Forward ••

•• Midfield •• Hooks will rely on as many as nine players to fill out his lineup in the midfield. Timo Foerster, Colin Francis and Hakeem King are experienced players who are expected to earn starting positions heading into the early part of the season. With King moving back from the forward position, the midfield should be infused with athleticism. Isaiah Ferguson is also expected to push for the fourth starting spot in the unit. Foerster (So., Oberkirk, Germany) had a solid season last year for Upstate. He has skills and a knowledge of the game. He is a strong center midfielder whether he plays in the attacking or defensive center mid positions. He started 15 games for Upstate a year ago and by season’s end was one of two go-to position players on the field. Francis (So., Toronto, Ontario) made great strides throughout the season last year and was a key player for the Spartans by the end of the season. He started 14 games for Upstate and is expected to battle for a starting spot in the center

Ben Brannan

•• Defender •• A total of 13 players will battle for playing time at the defender position as Hooks has placed a tremendous emphasis on the unit. While 13 bodies will vie for playing time, two of the starting spots are expected to be locked down by returning starters Nick Buxton and Ben Brannan. Buxton (Sr., Towcester, England) has been a mainstay in the starting lineup in the center of the defense since coming to Upstate to start

The forward unit will benefit by the experience gained by last year’s starters Hakeem King and Erkan Yildirim as well as newcomer Maurice Beggs. King (So., Port of Spain, Trinidad) started all 18 games for Upstate last year and finished with a goal and three assists. However, his speed and athleticism up front helped open things up for the other attacking player son the field for Upstate. King will most likely start the season in the midfield, but could move up top in case of injury or during certain game situations. Yildirim (Jr., Flensburg, Germany) had a solid first season with Upstate in 2008. He ranked in a tie for third on the team in scoring with six points on two goals and two assists. He is expected to continue in his development and lead the Spartans up top. Beggs (Jr., Arima, Trinidad) is a talented newcomer to the team after two successful years at Middle Georgia College. He has natural ability to put the ball in the net and brings added skill and athleticism to the unit. He and Yildirim are expected to be the starters at the position early in the season. Chad McCoy (Jr., Houston, Texas) returns to the team after having surgery to fix a severe ankle injury that miraculously did not keep him off the field, a testament to his toughness. As he returns to form, he should see increased action on the field. He is Upstate’s all-time Division I leading scorer. Eli Flores (Fr., Statesville, N.C.), who will see most of his action in the midfield, could also see time up front for the Spartans this season.

of the midfield. He is better suited to play at center defensive mid, but if his skills are better suited for the flanking midfielders and the strikers, he could move up to the attacking center mid spot. King is expected to man the right flanking midfield position, though he has the skill to move throughout the position and even play on the left side. Ferguson (Fr., Port St. Lucie, Fla.) is young but talented. He is expected to battle for a starting position at the left flanking midfield position. He had a solid high school career and can simply score goals. He has solid ball skills and knows the game. A quick transition to the college game could drastically help Upstate in 2009. Also battling for playing time in the midfield will be Tim Bailey, Kieran Clancy, John Collins, Eli Flores and Felipe Grana. Bailey (So., Simpsonville, S.C.) transferred to Upstate from Southern Wesleyan. He did not play for the Warriors after an eligibilty question and brought his game to Upstate. As a high school player, he was the SCISA Player of the Year in 2007 and finished his career with more than 70 goals at St. Joseph’s Catholic School. He will battle for time as a flanking midfielder. Clancy (So., Scottsdale, Ariz.) was a standout midfielder and defender for the renowned Sereno Soccer Club in Arizona. He signed with VMI out of high school and participated in preseason workouts before leaving school and enrolling at Arizona as a student last year. His experience at a high club level could benefit him at Upstate. he will battle for playing time as a flanking midfielder. Collins (Fr., Marston Mills, Mass.) was a three-year all-conference selection at Barnstable High School and was a solid club player in Masschusetts. He is equally solid at scoring and setting up teammates with assists. He will battle for playing time as a flanking midfielder. Flores (Fr., Statesville, N.C.) is expected to battle for playing time on the flank. He has solid speed and a knowledge for the game. He just needs experience on the college level after a successful career West Iredell High School where he finished his career with 69 goals. Grana (So., Lima, Peru) has the benefit of experience in Hooks’ system and is expected to contribute this season. He saw action in six games a year ago and gained valuable experience.

the 2005 season. He is simply a solid player with tremendous knowledge for the game. His experience is unmatched by anyone on the team. He is not only expected to perform well on the field, but lead on and off of it. He is fully recovered from a leg muscle injury that ended his season after three games a year ago. Brannan (Sr., Rock Hill, S.C.) came to Upstate from Spartanburg Methodist last year and immediately grabbed a starting position as a marking back. He will once again man a spot in the defense. He simply gives everything every game and is expected to help lead the defense. The other two spots in the defense are up fro grabs. Kareem Richardson and Porter Massey have an inside edge heading into the start of the regular season. Richardson (Fr., Port of Spain, Trinidad) is so versatile that he can play anywhere on the defense, and could potentially move to the center defensive midfield position as well. He has worked out both in the center and on the outside of the defense and is expected to lock down a starting position in the unit. He is an accomplished player. Massey (Fr., Charleston, S.C.) has shown tremendous progress early in the preseason and looks to nail down a spot as a marking back. He has a sound knowledge for the game and his skills continue to develop. He was a three-time 3A All-State selection at James Island Charter High School. Pushing for playing time in the back are Matt Begley, Andrew Jewell, John Kadane, Harper Kemp, Pack Lucas, Nathan Perschke and Philipp Soppa. In addition, Kieran Clancy may find time on the field as a defender. Noticeably absent from the position this season is Chris McCoy. McCoy (Jr., Houston, Texas) has been a key player on the defensive unit the last two seasons. He underwent two hip surgeries, one on each hip, to fix nagging injuries and is ecpected to miss the entire season. Begley (So., Summerville, S.C.) gained valuable experience last season, though he did not see game action. He has improved his skill and his experience may help him gain time on the field. Either way, he will provide much-needed depth as a marking back. Jewell (Fr., Rock Hill, S.C.) was added to the team late in the preseason. he had an acoomplished career at Rock Hill High School and is expected to provide depth as he makes the transition to the college game. Kadane (Fr., Garland, Texas) has shown flashes of being able to battle for a starting position in the center of the defense. He has decent size and has solid abilities. If he doesn’t find himself in a starting role, he will see action on the field as a key reserve as a freshman. Kemp (Sr., York, S.C.) will look to bring three years of the college experience to the center of the defense. He knows how to play the game and has improved his abilities on the field. Lucas (So., West Columbia, S.C.) played one season at USC Sumter before transfer-

ring to Upstate for the 2009 season. He was a first-team All-Region X selection as a freshman and is expected to battle for playing time in the back. A versatile player, he can play both flanking and center mid positions. Perschke (Jr., Spring, Texas) joined Upstate after two seasons as McMurry University in Texas. He started 16 games for the team a year ago and was the leading scorer despite his obvious defensive ability. He could very well find playing time in the center of the defense. Soppa (So., Sousbeck, Germany) has worked hard to develop his game at Upstate and it paid off as a key reserve early in the season a year ago. However, just as he got comfortable on the field, he suffered severe facial injuries and a major concussion after being inadvertently kicked in the face against Furman. He missed the remainder of the season and had to have several surgeries to repair the damage done to his face. He is back to full strength and will battle for playing time as a marking back.

Pat Regna

•• Goalkeeper •• Pat Regna returns with almost a sure lock on the starting position at goalkeeper, possibly one of the strongest units on the team. Regna (Sr., Rochester, N.Y.) turned in some inspiring performances in goal last season including an eight-save performance against A-Sun Tournament Champion Jacksonville. He commands the box and is a dynamic keeper. A serious infection ended his season prematurely, but he has returned to full strength for the 2009 campaign. Jason McCabe (Jr., Irmo, S.C.) will serve as a more than capable backup to Regna this season. He was forced into starting duties as a freshman in 2007 and earned A-Sun Player of the Week honors after leading Upstate to victories over Belmont and Lipscomb. He saw only slight action and had a pacemaker implanted in his chest after last season to regulate his heartbeat. He has absolutely thrived this summer and is a strong reserve for the Spartans. Two newcomers will battle for playing time as well and could be the future at the position for the Spartans. Clayton Gladden (Fr., Rock Hill, S.C.) led his Discoveries club team to the U-18 National Championship this summer and is an experienced keeper at a high level. As he makes the transition to the college game, he could see increased playing time on the pitch. Andrew Miller (Fr., Hubert, N.C.) has a solid understanding of the position and had a standout career at Swansboro High School. Like Gladden, the more time he spends in the college game could mean more time on the field.

USC Upstate Soccer: The NCAA Division II Years The University of South Carolina Upstate soccer team enjoyed tremendous success in the 1980s, as Frank Kohlenstein turned the Spartans into an NAIA power. USC Upstate posted an overall record of 140-52-11 (.717) for the decade, Rifle Field hosted two NAIA National Tournaments, and the Spartans finished third nationally three times. After one year as a dual member of the NAIA and NCAA in 1990, USC Upstate began play as a full member of the NCAA in 1991. While the decade of the ‘80s was immensely impressive, the program enjoyed even greater success in the 1990s. USC Upstate teams were 159-39-14 (.783), hosted the national championships in 1995 and 1998 as USC Upstate advanced to the title game both years, won three PBC regular season championships and six PBC Tournament titles. The program did not slow down once the year 2000 rolled around and, after a four-year break from the NCAA Tournament, returned to the postseason in 2002 and 2003. Upstate ended its membership in NCAA Division II and the Peach Belt Conference with a final NCAA Tournament appearance in 2006. The Spartans held a record of 250-54-22 in NCAA Division II. Note: Prior to the 2004 season, the University changed its name to USC Upstate and its nickname to Spartans. All references below to USC Spartanburg, USCS, and Rifles are for historical purposes only.

1993 USCS entered the 1993 season as the team to beat in the PBC after sweeping the regular season and tournament titles in 1992. A September loss to rival Lander cost the team a regular season championship, but the Rifles gained revenge with a 2-1 overtime win in the PBC finals to advance to the NCAA Tournament. They opened on the road against No. 5 Tampa and walked away with a 4-0 win for the program’s first-ever NCAA Tournament victory. The Rifles’ opponent in the quarterfinals would be Florida Tech, who entered the game with a perfect 18-0-0 record and ranked No. 1. A goal by Miles Dean in the 72nd minute tied the game at 2-2 and sent it into overtime. The upset for the No. 9 Rifles was not to be, however, as the Panther’s Richard Sharpe scored his third goal of the game in the 110th minute. Marlon Burgess was named First Team All-American, and Burgess, James Eley, Scott Halkett and Sean Hartley were named All-South Region. Dean (16-5-37) and Burgess (15-5-35) were the leading scorers.

1994 The 1994 Rifles enjoyed a truly outstanding season. They rolled through the PBC, capturing regular season and tournament championships. They set what was then a school record with 72 goals on their way to a 17-2-1 record and a fourth consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament. They used a balanced scoring attack, with five players scoring at least 24 points, but none more than 27. And they earned their first-ever home NCAA Tournament match, finishing No. 2 in the final regular season poll. On Nov. 19, USCS welcomed Tampa to Rifle Field. The Rifles had already defeated the Spartans 2-1 in Tampa, and hoped to repeat that performance in Spartanburg. Tampa had other ideas, defeating USCS, 3-0, on their way to the national championship. Marlon Burgess and Scott Halkett were named First Team All-American and Burgess, James Eley, Halkett, Sean Hartley and Musa Kaba were named All-South Region. Kyle Jordan (11-5-27), Kaba (10-7-27), Brent Askeland (8-10-26), Burgess (8-9-25) and Miles Dean (11-2-24) led the balanced Rifles’ offense.

1995 Five in a row! For the second time in four seasons, the Rifles were a little slow out of the gate. After two wins to open the year, USCS went 1-1-2 over the next four and stood at 3-1-2 entering PBC play. A midseason loss to Lander again cost USCS a regular ping the Senators, 3-1, in overtime. In the opening round of the NCAA Tournament, No. 6 USCS got two goals from Miles Dean to defeat #10 Presbyterian, 2-0, at Rifle Field. The win set up a rematch with defending national champion and No. 1 ranked Tampa in Florida. A goal by Peter Kirkelos in the 43rd minute was the only scoring of the game as USCS pulled off the upset. The win placed the Rifles in the Final Four, an event that was staged at Rifle Field. In the semifinals, USCS came from behind to defeat No. 12 Mercyhurst, 3-2, in double overtime. A goal by Nestor Chacon in the 114th minute sent the game into the second overtime, where the Rifles won on a Kirkelos goal in the 131st minute. USCS met No. 5 Southern Connecticut State in the finals. The Rifles managed just two shots, and the Owls scored twice in a six minute span in the first half for a 2-0 win. Scott Halkett was named First Team All-American and Miles Dean, James Eley and Halkett were named All-South Region. Dean (17-3-37), Brent Askeland (12-2-26) and Musa Kaba (9-7-25) were the leading scorers.

1997 The 1997 season was quite a reversal from the previous year. The Rifles won 20 games, scored a school-record 102 goals and advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals just one year after posting a disappointing 11-7-3 record. USCS opened the season with nine consecutive wins, outscoring their opponents 49-4. The Rifles then lost three of their next four, all by one goal. They snapped out of the slump in a big way, however, winning their next 10 games. Along the way, USCS captured the PBC regular season and tournament championships by winning 10 consecutive games over PBC opponents by a combined score of 49-4. They opened the NCAA Tournament at home versus Alabama-Huntsville. The Rifles took a 1-0 lead on a Brian Armstrong goal in the 46th minute. The Chargers came back to tie the score in the 69th minute, and took the lead in the 82nd minute. But Phil Stolfa answered with the equalizer just 1:45 later,

sending the game to overtime. Paul Zgalich scored the game-winner for the Rifles in the 92nd minute. USCS traveled to Boca Raton, Florida for the quarterfinals, and were defeated 3-1 by Lynn. Khari Sharrieff and Paul Zgalich were named Second Team All-American. Henrik Ronnevig, Sharrieff, Kalle Siira and Zgalich were named All-South Region. Sharrieff was named PBC Player of the Year and Greg Hooks was named PBC and South Region Coach of the Year. Sharrieff (29-6-64) and Ronnevig (19-19-57) paced the Rifles’ offense.

1998 After winning the PBC regular season and tournament championships, advancing to the NCAA quarterfinals, and posting a 20-4 record, the Rifles were ready to take the next step in 1998. USCS steamrolled to a 17-0 regular season record. Three straight wins in the PBC Tournament gave the Rifles their second consecutive double-double -- champions of the regular season and the tournament. The perfect season also extended the Rifles’ winning streak over PBC opponents to 20. In the opening round of the NCAA Tournament, No. 2 USCS got goals from Henrik Ronnevig, Matt Lucas and Phil Stolfa as they defeated No. 7 West Florida 3-1 at Rifle Field. The win set up a rematch with No. 1 ranked Lynn, a team USCS had never defeated, in Florida. The Rifles took an early 1-0 lead on a goal by Khari Sharrieff in the 13th minute. Lynn, playing a man down after a red card, scored the equalizer in the 79th minute. After a scoreless first overtime, things got a little crazy. Rifles’ goalkeeper Jeff Negalha was whistled for a foul and issued a red card for a dangerous play in the box at the 107:55 mark. Freshman keeper Chad Todd was inserted to face the ensuing penalty kick. Todd stoned the kick, which bounded to sweeper Rob Mikulski in the right corner. He cleared the ball to Sharrieff, who was waiting just past midfield. Sharrieff attacked the goal, and found a streaking Hasse Eranka, who scored just 16 seconds after the failed penalty kick to give USCS a 2-1 double overtime win and a trip to the Final Four. The 22-0 Rifles were chosen to host the Final Four for the second time in four seasons. In the first semifinal, Southern Connecticut State defeated Seattle Pacific, 3-0, to advance to the title game. In the other semifinal, USCS faced No. 15 Mercyhurst, who entered the game with a 17-3-1 record. The situation was eerily similar to 1995, when the Rifles hosted the Final Four, faced Mercyhurst in the semifinals, and Southern Connecticut State was waiting in the final. USCS got a goal and an assist from Ronnevig, and Aaron Ziehm also scored as the Rifles won, 2-0. Todd, making the start after Negalha’s red card, recorded 10

saves to earn the shutout. The championship game was a rematch of the Rifles’ thrilling 4-3 double-overtime win in September. A Rifle Field crowd of 2,833 saw the Owls score in the 8th minute, and hold on for a 1-0 win. The Rifles set a NCAA Division II record for winning percentage (23-1, .958). Ronnevig led the nation in assists and was named First Team All-American, as was Sharrieff. Ronnevig, Sharrieff and Kalle Siira were named All-South Region First Team and Ronnevig, Sharrieff, Siira, Mikulski and Negalha were named All-PBC. Ronnevig (12-22-46) and Sharrieff (15-7-37) were the leading scorers.

2002 After going three years without an NCAA Tournament appearance, the 2002 Rifle soccer team began the season with a mission - to restore the program to the elite level it has enjoyed for the better part of a quarter century. USCS has never disappeared from the national scene, but a three-year drought from the NCAA Tournament was too much for head coach Greg Hooks and the Rifle Boys. USCS opened the season as host of the Southern Soccer Classic, scoring 12 goals in two matches to win the tournament, dispatching of Limestone and Mars Hill. A close 3-2 win at Brevard gave the Rifles a wake-up call and USCS responded with eight more victories, outscoring its opponents 47-4 to start the season 11-0-0. The perfect start of the season allowed the Rifles to climb from its preseason ranking of 17th in the country to the No. 3 spot in the NSCAA Top 25 poll. However, the stay was short-lived as rival Lander claimed a 3-2 win in Greenwood, S.C., to end the Rifles perfect run. USCS fell to No. 5 in the poll and went 3-1 the rest of the way heading into the Peach Belt Tournament. USCS recorded three shutouts en route to its eighth PBC Tournament title in the 12-year history of the event. As the No. 1 team in the region and the No. 5 team in the country, USCS was awarded a host site for the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Rifles and Queens and battled in a quagmire at County University Soccer Stadium. Ricky Charles’ unassisted goal in the 53rd-minute was the difference as the Rifles prevailed 1-0 to move on to the quarterfinals against Central Arkansas. Central Arkansas jumped on USCS quickly and took a 2-0 lead early in the second half, eventually settling for a 3-0 win to end the Rifles season and quest for a national title. Despite the exit from the NCAA Tournament, the 2002 season was marked with a renewal of excellence for the Rifles. Charles earned All-America honors, defender Marlon Grant was named the Peach Belt Player of the Year and joined Charles, Chris Baretta, Preben Ringerike, and league Freshman of the Year Jorge Atehortua on the All-Conference team. Ringerike was named the PBC Tournament Most Valuable Player, while Atehortua, Charles, and Grant were named All-Region. Coach Hooks was not left out of the accomplishments either, winning his 200th career match.

2003 The 2003 Rifles entered the season as the sixth-ranked team in the NSCAA Top 25 poll, and it would be a prophetic ranking by year’s end. USCS started quickly by winning its first three games of the season before facing Lander in an epic battle. The Bearcats scored in the 17th-minute and played inspired defense to keep USCS scoreless until Preben Ringerike tied the match in the 83rd-minute to tie the match and send it into overtime. Once in OT, Ringerike ended the match 1:51 into the extra period to lift the Rifles to the win. USCS dispatched of all comers and rose to No. 2 in the poll with a 13-0-0 record heading into the final two regular season games of the year. The Rifles had already claimed the regular season Peach Belt Championship and all but clinched a second straight NCAA Tournament berth. USCS took its show on the road to Clinton, S.C., where a defensive minded Presbyterian club awaited the Rifles. In a constant, heavy rain, Presbyterian scored with less than five minutes to play and USCS had two goals called back on controversial offsides calls as the Blue Hose upset USCS, 1-0, to hand the Rifles their first loss on the season. It would later end up being its only official loss. USCS defeated Tusculum, 8-1, to clinch the No. 1 seed in the Southeast Region heading into the postseason. USCS defeated Clayton State and UNC Pembroke (on penalty kicks) for its ninth tournament title in 13 years of the event and its third in a row. USCS hosted the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament. After a first round bye, USCS faced Carson-Newman in the second round. The game headed into overtime where the Eagles prevailed on penalty kicks, ending Upstate’s season with a 15-1-2 record. Ricky Charles earned Peach Belt Player of the Year honors and was joined on the All-Conference team by Gary Lynch, Preben Ringerike, and Almir Barbosa. Barbosa was named the PBC Tournament MVP and was joined on the All-Tournament team by Andrew Frame, Josh Richardson and Janiel Simon. Charles, Ringerike, Lynch and Liam Slack earned All-Region honors and Charles picked up his second All-America award. Head Coach Greg Hooks was awarded the Peach Belt Coach of the Year honor for the third

2006 In its last year as a member of NCAA Division II and the Peach Belt Conference, Upstate wanted to go out with a bang. The Spartans started the quest for their first NCAA Tournament bid since 2003 by winning its first two matches before suffering a 1-1 tie to Limestone in what would be a prophetic match. Upstate answered with five straight wins, including a 5-0 drubbing of rival Lander, which was ranked No. 5 at the time. Upstate suffered its first loss of the season in a 1-0 decision to UNC Pembroke. Upstate rattled off three more wins before settling for a tie, a loss and a win to end the regular season with an 11-2-2 record and a 4-2-1 mark in the Peach Belt. The No. 3 seed in the Peach Belt Tournament, the Spartans fell in the semifinals but did enough in the regular season and the league tournament to earn its 10th NCAA Tournament appearance in 16 years as a member of Division II. Upstate faced Limestone in the opening round of the tournament hosted by Lander in Greenwood, S.C., and again battled to a tie after regulation and overtime. However, the Saints prevailed on penalty kicks to end Upstate’s run in the tournament and Division II. Liam Slack became the program’s only three-time All-American and goalkeeper Ryan Cooper joined him on the All-America list. Cooper, Slack, Nick Buxton and Troy Mellanson earned All-Conference and All-Region honors. Slack became the third-leading scorer in the history of the program and the fourth-leading scorer in Peach Belt Conference history.

Athletics Association / Compliance A Brief Guide To NCAA Rules For Alumni, Faculty And Friends “Institutional control” of athletics is a fundamental requirement of NCAA legislation. As such, the USC Upstate is responsible for ensuring that members of the faculty and staff, coaches, student-athletes, alumni, donors, boosters and friends of the institution comply with all applicable NCAA rules. The information below is intended to provide a basic overview of NCAA rules governing USC Upstate alumni, faculty and friends. Because of the complexity of the rules, the following does not include all applicable situations and should not be relied upon exclusively. USC Upstate appreciates your interest and support but reminds you an inappropriate contact or action on your part can jeopardize the eligibility of a prospective or enrolled student-athlete and the university. If you have specific questions, please contact Upstate’s Compliance Office at (864) 503-5793. Compliance with NCAA rules is of the highest priority for our athletics program and institution. Even the best-intentioned action on your part may be a violation of NCAA rules. Please remember to ASK before you ACT. You Are Considered A “Representative Of USC Upstate’s Athletics Interests” (i.e., a booster) if you: • Have ever made any type of financial or in-kind contribution to the athletics department, to a specific sport program, or to an athletics booster organization, including purchasing season tickets to athletics events. • Are or have been a member of any organization or agency promoting USC Upstate athletics. • Have ever helped to arrange or have provided employment for an enrolled student-athlete, a prospective student-athlete, or their parents or relatives. • Have ever assisted in any manner in the recruitment of prospective student-athletes. • Have ever provided benefits to enrolled studentathletes or their families. • Have otherwise promoted the institution’s athletics program in any manner.

The meal may be catered and must be limited to infrequent or special occasions. The Compliance Office must approve all such meals.

Rules Governing Contacts With And Benefits For Student-Athletes NCAA legislation expressly prohibits university supporters from providing “extra benefits” to enrolled student-athletes or their families. An extra benefit is any special arrangement to provide a studentathlete or his/her family a benefit not authorized by NCAA legislation. In general, boosters may not provide anything or make special arrangements for student-athletes or their families that are not available to the general student population.

A prospective student-athlete (a prospect) is: any person who has begun classes for the ninth grade. A prospective student-athlete remains a prospect even after he or she has signed a National Letter of Intent or accepts an offer of financial aid to attend USC Upstate. The prospect remains a prospect until they report for the first day of classes for a regular term (fall or spring), they participate in a regular squad practice or competition, or officially register and enroll and attend classes during the summer prior to initial enrollment and receive institutional athletics aid.

This is the Atlantic Sun For more than 30 years the Atlantic Sun Conference has stood for achievement with integrity in both the academic and athletic arenas with a focus on the balance between the two for its student-athletes. The A-Sun boasts a blend of the most dynamic and prestigious private and public institutions in the region, with all committed to the conference goal of Building Winners for Life. The experience for a student-athlete in the A-Sun is supported by the entire university community, from coaches to faculty, and from the CEO’s to the athletic and academic support staff. Atlantic Sun studentathletes compete in outstanding facilities throughout the conference and in some of top markets in the Southeast. Eight A-Sun schools compete in the top 10 media markets within the conference’s five-state footprint. With All-America selections, National All-Academic honorees, teams and individuals qualifying for and advancing in NCAA Championship play, A-Sun student-athletes achieve at the highest levels of collegiate athletics. ACADEMIC SUCCESS Continuing a tradition of academic achievement, more than 57 percent of all student-athletes earned All-Academic status during the 2008-09 academic year. Fifteen student-athletes earned places on the 2008-09 CoSIDA/ESPN the Magazine Academic AllDistrict Teams. Belmont led the impressive institutional totals in the race for the All-Academic Trophy for the seventh time in eight years with 66.5 percent of its the student-athletes achieving All-Academic status with grade point averages of a 3.00, or better. Belmont senior Andy Wicke, Jacksonville senior Jeremy Gillan, Lipscomb junior Kellie Sirus and Campbell senior Karlie Love earned spots on CoSIDA/ESPN the

Magazine Academic All-America teams. Lipscomb’s men and women track and field teams and the women’s cross country team ranked among the top 10 GPAs in NCAA Division I, in being recognized as All-Academic Scholar Teams from the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. The Belmont men’s cross country team posted the fifthhighest GPA, according to the USTFCCCA. Wicke, one of the Bruins’ most celebrated studentathletes, shared the conference’s male Scholar Athlete of the Year award and earned the conference’s Postgraduate Scholarship. Mercer’s Chereese Rowe earned the conference’s second Postgraduate Scholarship. Wicke earned national acclaim as he became one of just two men’s basketball players to receive an educational grant through the NCAA postgraduate scholarship program. For his dedicated academic success and community service, Wicke landed on the Lowe’s All-Senior All-America Second Team and was one of 10 finalists for the Lowe’s Senior Class Award. ATHLETIC SUCCESS For the second straight season, the A-Sun made early headlines on the hardwood as Mercer, under new head coach Bob Hoffman, went on the road and defeated Alabama and Auburn within a four-day span, shooting the Bears up to the top spot in the RPI. At the General Shale Brick Atlantic Sun Championship, ETSU ended Belmont’s three-year reign, winning its first A-Sun Tournament title and making the NCAA field for the eighth time. During the Championship, Courtney Pigram became just the second player in league history to reach the 2000- point plateau. Two players could reach that mark this season in Mercer’s James Florence and Campbell’s Jonathan Rodriguez. Florence and Campbell begin the season as the second- and third-highest active scorers in the nation. During the baseball season, three A-Sun hurlers, Lipscomb’s Rex Brothers and Kennesaw State’s duo of Chad Jenkins and Kyle Heckathorn moved up the draft boards of Major League teams with every

dominating performance. Brothers turned in one of the league’s top single-season strikeout performances; Jenkins posted a 41-inning scoreless streak and Heckathorn capped his season with a dominating 15-strikeout performance against UNF, earning National Player of the Week honors. On draft night, Jenkins became just the seventh A-Sun player to be a first-round selection, going to the Blue Jays. In the supplemental phase of the first round, the Rockies picked Rex Brothers and the Brewers tabbed Heckathorn. In softball, the conference turned in one of its finest seasons in history, especially during the non-conference season. Against out-of-conference opposition, A-Sun schools posted a .602 win percentage, the fifth-highest in the nation, trailing only the SEC, Pac10, ACC and Big 12. Five schools finished with win percentages better than .600 and FGCU and Mercer reached the 40-win mark. The Eagles established a league record for win percentage at .839 in posting a 47-9 record. For the second-consecutive May, Campbell emerged victorious at the A-Sun Championship, led by the dominating performance of MVP Brittany Stanley. She pitched all 31 innings, recorded two shutouts and struck out 26 against only two walks. One of the most dominating athletes in Atlantic Sun history closed out her career in Jacksonville’s Natasha Harvey. She led the Dolphins team titles in both Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field for a fourthstraight year and won the inaugural MVP honors at both meets as well as the Most Outstanding Field Performer award. During her four years, she won a combined 18 individual events, five Most Outstanding Performer awards, both Most Outstanding Freshman performers in addition to the two MVP honors. Off the track, she won the A-Sun’s Female Student-Athlete of the Year Award, was the A-Sun’s nominee for the NCAA Woman of the Year Award and appeared on the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association All-Academic team for a fourth-straight year.
