The nine members of the Western Athletic Conference are committed to growing their athletic programs from good to great and from great to exemplary. In no time since the WAC’s founding in 1962, has the membership been so supportive of a league direction or idea. On each campus, WAC schools are making great strides to improve both athletically and academically. Whether that means better facilities, better academic support, or more financial and personnel resources, all WAC schools are making new commitments to their athletic departments. What this means for prospective and current student-athletes is a concerted effort to make their college athletic experience more rewarding and fulfilling. Play Up is not a slogan. It is a reminder and a promise to do the little things to get better each day. Whether that is working towards a personal goal, a team goal, or an institutional goal, Play Up is a league-wide commitment to get better. For some schools, the starting point of this improvement is higher than for other schools. Regardless of the starting point, each school is improving both academically and athletically. As for the WAC staff, it is committed to cultivating success among its members, while also increasing exposure and revenue. Concurrently, it is also upgrading the college athletic experience for all of its student-athletes.

Everything it means to be a Bronco is defined through the Just B campaign, with key phrases like B Proud, B True, B Committed, B Positive, B Champions inter-mixed with broadband, print, video and community related projects. The campaign also involves fan connection with a B There phase that encourages attendance and support at all Boise State events.

ABOUT THE WAC

WAC HISTORY SINCE 1962 In its 48th year, the Western Athletic Conference continues to evolve and features some of the nation’s best intercollegiate competition. One thing that remains unchanged is the persistent nature of the nine schools in the WAC to advance their programs to contend at the top levels of the NCAA. The WAC provides its student-athletes the chance to travel to scenic destinations and gain exposure in some of the nation’s most diverse markets. In addition, the WAC’s student-athletes work to achieve the highest levels of success with the academic support of their respective institutions.

WAC RECORDS & HISTORY

THE SCHOOLS

CONTINUED SUCCESS The WAC has experienced tremendous success. The WAC has sent a total of 27 teams to bowl games since 2001, including more than half of its teams in 2008 with a record-tying five teams. Boise State has won 88 football games since joining the conference, the second most in the nation during that time span (2001-08). The conference sent teams to back-to-back BCS games as Hawai‘i earned a bid to the 2008 Sugar Bowl following Boise State’s unforgettable victory in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl. In men’s basketball, the WAC has sent at least two teams to the NCAA Tournament in 23 of the past 26 seasons. Every current school in the WAC has competed in the NCAA Tournament since 1990. In baseball, the WAC has boasted two national champions since 2003 including Fresno State’s College World Series victory in 2008. In women’s sports, Fresno State softball has competed in every NCAA Tournament ever held while Louisiana Tech basketball has played in all but three. Current WAC alums have made their presence felt as well. David Carr (Fresno State) was the first player selected in the 2002 NFL Draft. Cheryl Ford (Louisiana Tech) was named the WNBA Rookie of the Year and helped the Detroit Shock win the league’s championship in 2003. In 2004, the United States’ softball team won the Olympic gold medal with former Fresno State players Laura Berg and Lovie Jung. Jeff Weaver (Fresno State) earned the win in the St. Louis Cardinals’ World Series clinching victory in 2006. Quarterback Colt Brennan (Hawai‘i) finished third in the 2007 Heisman Trophy voting, and in 2008, Natasha Kai (Hawai‘i) helped the United States to a gold medal in soccer at the Olympics in Beijing.

Since the WAC’s inception, several changes have occurred. UTEP and Colorado State became members in September 1967, while Arizona and Arizona State withdrew on June 30, 1978. The WAC then added San Diego State (1978), Hawai‘i (1979) and Air Force (1980). Before 1990, the WAC sponsored championships only in men’s sports. However, a merger with the High Country Athletic Conference formed a single conference under one administrative structure, and the 1990-91 athletic year was the first in which both men and women competed under the WAC name. Fresno State was added in 1992, and then in 1996, the women’s programs from Air Force and Hawai‘i along with six new schools (UNLV, Rice, San Jose State, SMU, TCU and Tulsa) came into the WAC. Air Force, Brigham Young, Colorado State, UNLV, New Mexico, San Diego State, Utah and Wyoming withdrew on June 30, 1999. Nevada (2000), Boise State (2001) and Louisiana Tech (2001) were added while TCU withdrew following the 2000-01 season. The current membership was established on July 1, 2005, when Idaho, New Mexico State and Utah State joined the WAC after Rice, SMU, UTEP and Tulsa withdrew. The WAC has had just five commissioners in its history. Paul Brechler was named the first leader of the conference and held the position from 1962-1968. He was followed by Wiles Hallock (1968-71), Stan Bates (197180), Dr. Joe Kearney (1980-94) and Karl Benson (1994-present).

WAC CHAMPIONS Presently, the WAC crowns team and individual champions in 19 sports – eight men’s and 11 women’s. For the men, there are championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, indoor track and field and outdoor track and field. Championships for women are held in basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field and volleyball. The WAC office has been located in the Denver area since the conference’s inception with the exception of a two-year stay in Phoenix from 1964-66.

TELEVISION PRESENCE In 2001, the WAC partnered with ESPN for coverage of football and basketball giving the conference national exposure from one of the most respected broadcast entities in the country. An extension was signed in 2008 that guarantees over 300 regular season WAC contests and 45 championship events will be aired on the ESPN networks through the spring of 2017. The WAC also officially added WAC.tv in 2006 to give fans streaming internet access to many of its postseason championships including volleyball, soccer, swimming and diving, basketball, gymnastics, softball and baseball.

HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE The WAC is the sixth oldest among the nation’s 11 Division I-A conferences. Its history traces back to July 27, 1962, when the original six-team league of Arizona, Arizona State, Brigham Young, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming began competition. The first championship was held in November 1962, when Arizona won the men’s cross country title and New Mexico followed with the first WAC football title. Arizona finished second in the NCAA College World Series and, less than three years later, Arizona State claimed the league’s first NCAA title when the Sun Devils won the College World Series trophy. Fresno State was the last WAC school to earn an NCAA team title when it won the College World Series in 2008.

ABOUT THE WAC

WAC SAAC THE VOICE OF THE STUDENT ATHLETE How does the WAC generate feedback from its most valuable product, its student-athletes? Through the Western Athletic Conference StudentAthlete Advisory Committee (also known as the WAC SAAC) which was established in 1998. Since its implementation, the WAC SAAC has been an essential component in the conference’s governance structure as well as a strong voice for student-athletes’ well-being at all levels (e.g., institutional, conference and national). It provides recommendations and positions on specific conference and NCAA proposed legislation, and it addresses national issues that may have an effect on the well-being of all student-athletes. In addition, its members provide recommendations for the eighteen WAC championships in order to enhance the student-athlete experience for all sports. Another objective which the committee constantly strives to obtain is to help strengthen and improve the communication and relationships among athletes, campus administrators and coaches.

THE SCHOOLS

On the national stage, the WAC SAAC selects one of its committee members to serve as its representative on the NCAA SAAC, which includes all of the Division I conferences. The WAC SAAC is a proactive committee and is making a very positive impact within the WAC membership. Annually, each member institution appoints two student-athletes from its own campus SAAC to serve on the conference committee. To conduct business, the committee has two in-person meetings during the year and schedules monthly teleconference calls during the academic year. As part of the WAC SAAC Spring meeting, the committee conducts a community service outreach project within the host member institution’s local area. Past projects have included the following: sports camp and clinic for underprivileged children, visiting local Boys and Girls Clubs, visiting Children’s Hospitals and homeless shelters and neighborhood house painting. Taking a leadership role in conducting community projects is part of the WAC SAAC’s goals and objectives.

2009 WAC SOCCER MEDIA GUIDE

2009 PREVIEW SOCCER FORMAT The WAC will continue its regular-season play as a single round-robin format for a total of eight conference matches. The points system is as follows: each team will receive three points for a win and one point for a tie. The six teams with the most points at the end of the regular season will advance to the WAC Tournament which is being held Nov. 5-6 and 8 in Boise, Idaho. TIE-BREAKING PROCEDURE To determine championship seeding in the event of ties between two teams or ties among multiple teams, the following criteria are applied: In the event of a two-way tie: 1. Head-to-head competition 2. Compare the teams’ records to that of the next highest finishing team (if tie for first). If tie is for position other than first, comparison will begin at the top of the standings. 3. In the unlikely event that teams are still tied, the conference conducts a draw. For a three or more-way tie: 1. Head-to-head competition among the teams involved in the tie. The team(s) with the best record against the other teams receives the higher seed or advances to the next tie-breaker. 2. Same procedures as above.

ABOUT THE WAC

IDAHO VANDALS QUICK FACTS Location:............................................Moscow, Idaho Joined WAC: ...........................................

VANDAL BITS 

The 2008 Vandal women couldn’t catch a break during the year. Idaho had 10 losses by one goal in 2008, with three coming in overtime.

Idaho has reduced its opponents’ scoring average in each of the last three seasons. In 2006, the Vandals allowed 3.09 goals per game, then allowed 2.19 in 2007 and 1.62 in 2008.

The 2009 freshman class at Idaho is the largest since 1999–the program’s second year of existence. One-half of Idaho’s 2009 roster will be true freshman, as 12 of the team’s 24 players will be fresh out of high school.

With the graduation of Kelsey Manning last season, Idaho lost 68 games worth of experience, including 62 consecutive starts, at the center back position. Prime candidates to step up into the defensive leader position include sophomores Danielle Hayward and Desirae Hull, who started 17 and 15 games, respectively, last season as true freshmen.

One position of strength for Idaho in 2009 will be goalkeeper, as the team returns both senior Anna Sandman and sophomore Liz Boyden. Boyden played in 16 and started 15 last season as a freshman, while Sandman has 31 games and 29 career starts to her name. Boyden led the WAC with 5.62 saves per game in 2008, while Sandman ranked second in the same category in 2007 with 5.41. Sandman’s 92 saves in 2007 are an Idaho single-season school record, while Boyden’s 90 in 2008 rank third.

LADY TECHSTER BITS 

The Lady Techsters historic 2008 campaign, where they went 10-5-5, was highlighted by the NCAA naming the team the most improved squad in the nation.

The season marked Tech’s first winning season in its five-year history.

Along with Tech establishing a school record in wins with 10, they also set single-season records in shutouts (10), goals (49), fewest goals allowed (19), assists (40) and points (138).

The team notched single-game records in assists (9) and points (25), while they tied the record for most goals (8).

Fourteen letterwinners return from the 2008 team, including senior Hikari Kurokawa and graduate student Kat McCullough along with fellow WAC Player of the Week honorees Cat Buchanan and Scotti Culton.

Tech’s four player of the week selections from last season (Buchanan, Culton, Kurokawa and McCullough) were the most the program has had in a single season.

In head coach Jeff Leightman’s second year in charge, San Jose State will be in search of its first winning season since going 12-7-1 in 1999.

The Spartans return WAC Offensive Player of the Year candidate Emmy Belding as a senior striker in 2009.

A program high of 10 Spartans were named Academic All-WAC in 2008-09, including returning players Emmy Belding, Katie Bonadies, Shanelle Furner, Kelsy Holm, Kim Johnston, Roxy Kamal, Lauren Ng-Pinkerton, Lauren Sanchez and Angela Santoro.

The Spartans will open the new campaign at home against top area foe Santa Clara (Aug. 21) for the second season in a row. San Jose State is scheduled to contest nine of its 19 matches on the new FieldTurf inside Spartan Stadium in 2009.
