USAO at a Glance


About the university

4

USAO is one of the most unique and progressive universities in the nation. It is Oklahoma’s only public liberal arts college. As a liberal arts institution, we believe it is important that students always have before them the simultaneous experience of specialized and general learning. We believe it is important that they be challenged to relate their academic concentration to the broader realm of knowledge and that they be continually encouraged to develop meaningful and useful associations between diverse bodies of information. This is the meaning of interdisciplinary education, and it is what truly distinguishes the learning experience at USAO. Many of the classes are taught by faculty teams, where two, three and sometimes four instructors plan the course and teach it together. For example, “American Civilization” may be taught by a historian, philosopher and artist. “World Thought and Culture” could include a philosopher, sociologist and a literature professor. “Math in the Modern World” might involve a mathematician, computer scientist and musician. Instructors interact in dealing with complex topics, all bringing his or her particular academic concentration into a conversation of perspectives. This form of education is not easy. We intend that the rigors students face in interdisciplinary learning will result in significant personal growth and development. Difficulty is a necessary prerequisite of growth and development. Challenge is what interdisciplinary education is all about. It is what USAO is all about. USAO has one of the best-prepared faculties in the state to offer and help conquer this challenge. Now, almost 90 percent of professors have earned the highest degree available in their field. In 2011, USAO joined the prestigious list of “National Liberal Arts Colleges” in the U.S. News and World Report’s annual ranking — the only institution in Oklahoma, public or private, to be included on this select, national list. The same list includes Trinity, Amherst, Swarthmore and hundreds of other respected, private liberal arts colleges. USAO also received an ‘A’ grade from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA) for the strength of its IDS curriculum, making it one of only 19 universities nationwide to score this near perfect score. As of fall 2011, no institution in Oklahoma has higher admission standards. This is only one of the ways this institution is being transformed by its 10-year Mission Enhancement Plan. In addition to the unique curriculum, USAO is a National Historic District and is the only college or university in Oklahoma to be on the National Register of Historic Places. It was given this status because of its history and the preservation of numerous original buildings on campus. Originally founded as Oklahoma College for Women in 1908, the school was the first college created by Oklahoma’s first Legislature. Additionally, it was one of only seven colleges nationwide created with the mission of catering to women. Along with a rich history, USAO has the oldest original mission of any state college of university. Its original motto states:

Not for livelihood but for life.

affairs. Off campus, Feaver serves on the boards of Preservation Oklahoma, Oklahoma Academy for State Goals, Oklahoma Creativity Project and others in education and economic development. Statewide, he is recognized for his leadership on economic development issues, the liberal arts, creative and private funding strategies for higher education and the preservation and restoration of historic buildings. Feaver was inducted into the Oklahoma Higher Education Hall of Fame in October, joining a very short list of sitting presidents to be so honored. Feaver was a history instructor at the University of Oklahoma. He obtained his master’s degree from OU in European history with an emphasis in the Russian and Soviet area. Feaver completed the requirements for his doctorate in United States’ diplomatic history at OU in 1980.

John and Marilyn Feaver

In 2000, John Feaver was named the 12th President of USAO, and since then the institution has been named among the top public colleges in America by U.S. News and World Report, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine and the American Council of Trustees and Alumni. Feaver’s Mission Enhancement Plan seeks to establish USAO’s reputation as an affordable, high-quality, public liberal arts education. Its 51-hour core curriculum is like none other in Oklahoma, aimed entirely at producing creative, entrepreneurial graduates who think critically, globally and resourcefully. No other university in Oklahoma has higher admission standards than USAO. Feaver’s first major achievement as president was to earn national status for USAO as a National Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places. Before he became president, Feaver spent eight years on the faculty and 12 years as vice president for academic


Drover History

6

The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma was well into its history before introducing its first sports teams in 1973 — teams that became known as the Drovers and the Droverettes, named after the rich heritage of cattle driving in the Chickasha area. Today, both teams are referred to as the Drovers. The athletic programs began when the school was still named Oklahoma College of Liberal Arts. It started with baseball games, golf and tennis matches scheduled in the spring of 1973. The Drovers’ most prominent sport — basketball — began in the fall of 1973. During that first year, the Drovers borrowed uniforms in blue, gold and white. In the school’s second season, the OCLA Drovers became the USAO Drovers, and new uniforms in our trademark green and gold colors were acquired. The first Drover basketball games were set against Bethany Nazarene College on Nov. 17, 1973. Two days later, on Nov. 19, then-Chickasha Mayor Samuel E. Evans declared “Drovers Day” as the university celebrated its first home game in Myers Fieldhouse, which is owned by Chickasha Public Schools. In 1981, the Drovers broke ground on the USAO Fieldhouse, which gave the teams a place to practice and play in their own backyard. Phase I of the building was completed during the 1981-82 season. Three more phases added dressing rooms, training areas and a swimming pool. Long-time head basketball coach Brisco McPherson played for the first Drover basketball team and has been connected with the program ever since. In 1984, basketball star Gordon Musgrove earned the university’s first All-American honor. A few seasons later, in 1988, Herb Blunt became USAO’s first All-America First Team recipient and earned Player of the Year honors in the Sooner Athletic Conference and NAIA’s District 9. In 2002, the men’s basketball team went on to claim the Drovers first NAIA National Championship, beating out conference rival Oklahoma Baptist 96-79. After a 17-year hiatus, baseball was reborn in 1994, when the USAO Board of Regents voted to expand USAO’s sports programs to include baseball, softball and cross country. Long-time Drover supporter and USAO administrator Bill Smith donated his personal baseball memorabilia to auction off for funds to help re-establish the Drover baseball and softball programs. In 1995, he became the namesake of the Drovers’ ballpark. Both baseball and softball programs have served the university well, with baseball earning the Red River Conference North Division Championship in 1999 and softball claiming the SAC Championship in 2004. The softball program earned three straight NAIA National Tournament ap-

pearances in the mid-2000s. USAO proudly supported a tennis teams for years. The women’s tennis team in 1999 became the first in school history to win a regional championship. That year, both the men’s and women’s team’s qualified for the NAIA National Tournament. While the golf team served the college sporadically with pride for many seasons, it along with tennis, was discontinued in lean years. In 1998, the Drovers began the men’s and women’s soccer programs under Coach Jimmy Hampton. The Drover men have claimed numerous Sooner Athletic Conference championships and have been to the NAIA Men’s Soccer National Championship tournament three times. In 2010 and 2011, the Drover men made it all the way to the quarterfinals of the tournament, making history for the young program. In 2011, the Drover women’s soccer team competed in their first NAIA National Tournament and won the Sooner Athletic Conference Tournament title for the first time in the program’s history. Beginning in fall of 2012, the Drovers brought back cross country, which served the university a few seasons in the mid-1990s. USAO began play as part of a five-school group that started the Sooner Athletic Conference. USAO dropped out of the SAC in 1994 to join the Oklahoma Intercollegiate Conference. The Drovers played in the OIC for just four seasons before moving on to the Red River Athletic Conference. After only two seasons with the RRAC, USAO applied for and was granted membership back into the SAC for the 2000-01 season. The Drovers have a rich history of winning and producing quality student-athletes. The university boasts 32 All-Americans, 53 NAIA Scholar-Athletes and 175 All-Conference coaches and athletes throughout its history.


Distinguished Drovers USAO is proud to boast their 32 All-Americans, 53 NAIA Scholar-Athletes and 179 All-Conference athletes and coaches.

NAIA All-Americans


Drover Dancers Gracing the sidelines and promoting Drover support for the last two years have been USAO’s own Drover Dancers, a squad that developed out of the former cheerleading team. Much like in the past, the Drover Dancers will perform during halftimes and create a presence on the sidelines. This year, the Dancers also will have dances corresponding with some of the basketball game themes. Led by Emily Hector, the Dancers have been fine-tuning their performances since finalizing the squad after tryouts in early September. In addition to coaching the squad, Hector is an adjunct professor at USAO, Chickasha High School pom coach and owner and teacher of Love to Dance studio.

USAO Pep Band This is the second year for the student run and organized USAO Pep Band. Much like last year, the band will play a variety of music, including some fan favorites — like OutKast’s “Hey Ya” and Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust”— to go along with their traditional repertoire of the USAO Fight Song and Star Spangled Banner. You may even learn who to call if there’s something strange in your neighborhood. While the band is smaller in size than previous years, students participating are dedicated to making the pep band a tradition at USAO basketball games. Completing the pep band is a couple of guitars, a drum set, a couple of trumpets, a trombone, and yes, even a cowbell. A special treat this year is that Dr. Dan Hanson will be joining the band to play base. The band again is led by music senior Dylan Nagode, who was in charge of the band for the 2011-12 season as well.

Jennifer Hayden Head Coach

Coach Jennifer Hayden is excited to begin her first season with the Drovers, eager to show off in the tough Sooner Athletic Conference. “She understands the mission of the university,” USAO Athletic Director Brisco McPherson said. “Hopefully, she can bring the program back to where it’s been in the past. We are looking for someone who understands that academics as well as success on the court need to be equal and that’s where her strengths lie.” Hayden began work at the university in June and started teaching classes in the fall. “USAO is a place where students can be successful both as a student and an athlete,” Hayden said. “I am very excited about the potential I see at USAO for the women’s basketball program. USAO has proven to excel in other athletic programs, and I believe the women’s basketball program can also become a strong competitive program.” Hayden comes to USAO directly from Sul Ross State University in Alpine, Texas. There, she recruited and coached the 2011-12 American Southwest Conference West Division Newcomer of the Year and had three NCAA Scholar-Athletes. Sul Ross is an NCAA Division III school. Prior to joining the Lobo staff in 2010, Hayden spent two seasons starting a new program as the head women’s basketball coach at NAIA Division I University of the Southwest in Hobbs, N.M. Her teams qualified for the Red River Conference Tournament both years she coached at USW. During her two seasons at USW, Hayden had a RRAC Player of the Year, a two-time NAIA All-America selection, six All-Conference selections and numerous student athletes recognized as scholar athletes by the conference as well as the NAIA. Dedicated to the classroom as well as the basketball court, Hayden’s 2008-09 and 2009-10 teams were both recognized as NAIA Scholar Teams. Before her time at the University of the Southwest, Hayden served as the assistant women’s basketball coach and director of student activities at Clarke College in Dubuque, Iowa. She also served as a graduate assistant for athletic administration and sports information at West Texas A&M University and was an assistant women’s basketball coach at Oklahoma Panhandle State University after graduating from there. Hayden graduated with her master’s of education in administration from West Texas A&M. She earned two bachelor’s degrees in accounting and business education from Oklahoma Panhandle State University. Additionally, she played basketball and softball at Oklahoma Panhandle State. Hayden and her husband, Sam, have one daughter, Carlie. Sam Hayden is the assistant baseball coach at and alumnus of USAO.

Leandra Johnson jumped right into coaching and right into life at USAO, taking on an assistant coaching role with the women’s basketball team and serving as head cross country coach for both the men’s and women’s programs. “It’s been kind of crazy,” she said. “It’s been an adventure, and it’s been fun. It keeps me busy.” Johnson joined the Drovers in 2011 after spending two years as a graduate assistant at Northwestern Oklahoma State and two years as a player for the Lady Rangers. Before her time in Alva at Northwestern, Johnson played post at Redlands Community College for two seasons. Shortly after accepting the position with the basketball team,


2012-13 Season Preview … and she finds a way to get to the basket,” Hayden said. “Brittany Scott has had some solid experience playing point guard … she’s coming in with a lot of experience right now. She’s a more of a vocal leader for us.” The Drovers, who have struggled the last few seasons, were picked to finish last in the conference, but that isn’t a concern for Hayden and her crew. “I’m not upset about that. I love going in being the underdog,” she said. “I think talent level is certainly higher than what people expect us to have.” As is the case traditionally, three Sooner Athletic Conference schools sit in the NAIA Top 10. Lubbock Christian tops the poll, while Rogers State comes in eighth and Oklahoma City follows at No. 10. “That just shows how hard our conference is. There are no easy games in our conference. No easy nights,” Hayden said. “I’m excited about it. I’m pretty optimistic about it. I think we are going to surprise a lot of the people, and I think we are going to be overlooked.”

Steadily improving and keeping grades high will be the focuses of the 2012-13 women’s basketball team as they continue to transition with new Head Coach Jennifer Hayden. “Certainly a goal for me coming in is to bring the team up and make it to the conference tournament,” Hayden said. “We always set an academic goal as well. We want to achieve a higher than 3.3 GPA.” The Drovers competed in two scrimmages in October, facing Seminole State and Redlands Community College. “After our first scrimmage, we saw some good things and some things we need to work on,” Hayden said. “We’ve put in a lot of new things since then and a lot of improvement since then.” Not only will the players be transitioning to a new coaching philosophy, they will be learning to play together since 12 of the players are new to the university this year. While there are only four returning players from the 201112 squad, three were starters. Additionally, there are a total of seven seniors on the team. Returning for another season is last year’s leading scorer Paige Pulliam, a junior from Newcastle. Pulliam led the team in points with 381, field goals with 119, three-pointers with 50, free throws with 93 and assists with 63. Also returning is four-year starter Tashina Ototivo. She led last year’s team in rebounds with 203 and in minutes played with 872. She was also second in field goal percentage. Ototivo was the only player on the team to be named All-Conference. Lauren Campo is another senior who started in nearly every game last year. She scored 122 points, collected 88 rebounds and had 42 assists. Marissa Medrano is USAO’s final returning player. The 6-foot-3 senior brought height and inside presence to the Drovers last season. “All of the returners are going to play key roles for us,” Hayden said. “The returners we have here have done very well and have been open to learning a new system. Everyone has meshed pretty well together.” Hayden had a lot of positive comments about her newcomers as well, including Celeste Smith, who is battling an injury, and Rocio Medrano. Both players spent second semester of 2011-12 at USAO, but not yet cleared to play. “Rocio Medrano is going to come in and will be a key defender for us and an offensive presence,” Hayden said. She also mentioned Krista Ford, who followed her to USAO from Sul Ross State; Patricia Inacio, a junior transfer from New Mexico Junior College; Ndeye Ngom, a junior from Redlands Community College; and Brittany Scott, a senior guard from Southern Arkansas University. “Ndeye’s a quiet player, but she does a lot of good things

2012-13 Season Preview

24

With three key starters and two big scorers off the bench coming back for a senior year, the Drovers are in good shape for a strong 2012-13 season. Head Coach Brisco McPherson said he thinks this year’s team will come in with strong athleticism, coupled with the benefit that there are seven seniors and five juniors bringing in a high level of play and experience. McPherson said he was impressed with the intensity the players showed in their two preseason scrimmages. “We pushed the ball pretty well down the floor and get down there pretty quick. We are going to need to use that to be effective,” McPherson said. “We’ve got guys who can run … That’s what we are going to have to do, beat people in transition.” The Drovers pre-conference schedule is much different from ones in the past as they face former SAC teams Northwestern OSU, Oklahoma Christian and Southern Nazarene. Returning for a senior season are All-Conference Honorable Mentions Phil Harris and Norris Rumph. Also for playing for another season is starter Brandon Cutler. Harris has progressively improved each of his previous three seasons at USAO. He is now third in school history in career steals with 112. He led the 2011-12 team in three pointers with 50. Additionally, he was second to NAIA AllAmerica First Team Kyle Hunt in total points with 337. He also was second in assists with 74. Rumph transferred to USAO last season and immediately made an impact. He was third on last year’s squad in points scored with 298 and second to Harris in threes made with 36. Cutler was a player who had a strong inside presence for the Drovers. He had 194 points and 92 rebounds despite a mid-season wrist injury. McPherson said he will be looking to these guys to bring leadership and maturity to the court. “We’ve got guys who have been here four years,” he

said “They know what the conference is all about and how tough it is. They should be able to provide leadership.” Two other key returners are Zacharias Lewis and Graham Faulkner. Faulkner is another player who is now entering his fourth year at USAO. Both players saw action in nearly every game of the season, collecting 245 combined points. One of the key newcomers who brings in some size is Jahseth Lloyd, a 6-foot-6 junior from Hill College. “I’ve been really impressed with him,” McPherson said. “I guess he’s just a game player. When it’s time to play a game, he is ready to go. He played real well, played hard.” McPherson also mentioned Ahmir Bailey, a 6-foot-5 transfer from West Hills College; Darrius Bryson, a 6-foot transfer from Seminole State; Dejuan Lofton, a 5-foot-1 senior from Washburn University; and Kennis White, a 6-foot-3 junior also from West Hills College. “Our perimeter guys are as good as any in the league,” McPherson said “I like the guys we brought in. There are some other kids we brought in who we think can help us.” As always, the Drovers find themselves in a tough league. Two SAC teams are ranked in the NAIA Top 5. Oklahoma Baptist sits at No. 2 while Rogers State is No. 5. John Brown isn’t far behind at 17, and Lubbock Christian and Oklahoma City are receiving votes. SAC Preseason polls put those teams in that same order, and USAO falling immediately after at sixth. “I think we should finish higher than that, but we’ll have to see how we come together as a team,” he said. “I think we should be able to play with anyone in our league, including OBU, who was the team picked to win the conference. If we do what we are capable of doing, we are right there with every body else.” Much like in years in the past, the goal for the Drovers is to make it to the Sooner Athletic Conference tournament because the winner earns an invite to the NAIA National Tournament.
