The Western Michigan women’s golf program is under the direction of head coach Cindy Trout, who embarks on her 12th with the University in 2009-10. The only head coach the program has known since its inception during the fall of 1998, Trout has literally worked from scratch to develop the Broncos into one of the top programs in the Mid-American Conference. Western Michigan had six top-10 finishes during the 2008-09 campaign and finished third in the MAC Championships for the third time in program history. The team saw the first Bronco earn a spot on the season-ending MAC Championship All-Tournament Team (Britney Hamilton) and the fourth to earn Second Team All-MAC (Elise Swartout). Under Trout’s guidance, the program’s signature annual event (Rio Verde Collegiate Invitational) received title sponsorship for the first time in its seven-year history. Duramed Pharmaceuticals is also the title sponsor of the Duramed FUTURES Tour, which is a pipeline into the LPGA. The 2007-08 season marked the WMU golf program’s 10th season under Trout and graduated two seniors in Laura Bavaird and Megan Petzko. Bavaird left the program ranked in the top four in nine categories and is the program record holder for single-season scoring average (75.4 in 2007-08), career scoring average (77.9) and tied for rounds in a season (28 in 2005-06). Petzko, a 2007-08 James F. Coyne Memorial Golf Scholarship recipient, left the program ranked in the top 10 in career average (5th), rounds in a season (T-6th) and low 72-hole score (7th).

Under Trout’s guidance, the Broncos finished in the top five at five out of nine tournaments, including a season-best second-place finish at the 2008 Red Rocks Invitational in Sedona, Ariz. WMU finished the season 38-23 against regional competition, including a 19-8 mark against teams from the MAC. Trout coached the 2006-07 team to its first team title since 2004. The Broncos captured the William & Mary Invitational title with a two-day score of 617 (310-307). Western Michigan finished in the top-10 in seven of 10 tournaments during the year, including a third-place finish at the MAC Championships. Under Trout’s tutelage, 2006-07 senior Erin Thorne finished her career as the leader or co-leader in five categories. Thorne eclipsed her former teammate, Jenna Walter, for the career scoring average (78.6) and rounds in a career (103). Thorne is also the career leader in low 54-hole total (222) and 72-hole total (300). She shared the rounds in a season (28) mark with Laura Bavaird and classmate Lindsay Dunigan. The 2005-06 season was marked by special individual play from Walter. In the spring of 2006, she left WMU as the all-time leader in career scoring average (78.9) and career rounds (94). Fellow captain, Erin Thorne, also carded the second-lowest round in program history (69) during the final round of the MAC Championships. Western Michigan fired the third-lowest team score in a round in program history. The Broncos came together to fire a 291 in the final round of the 2006 MAC Championships, one of only four team rounds below 300 at the event. Since the 2000-01 campaign, the Broncos have claimed 10 event championships under Trout’s tutelage, including 12 medalist winners. Five of the team victories have come in the last two seasons and included a best-ever second place finish at the MAC Championships in 2003-04. The Mid-American Conference Coach of the Year that season, Trout and the Broncos made a run for the title at the league tournament. WMU, which served as host of the event, owned the lead after the opening round of play and the roster featured a pair of all-conference selections. Trout has guided the Broncos to success both on the golf course and in the classroom. The squad’s scoring average has improved dramatically in recent campaigns, leading to record-setting efforts on a near weekly basis. Each of the last three years a Bronco player has been named to the Academic All-MAC Team and others have also claimed accolades for their efforts academically. Competitively, the Broncos have upgraded their schedule and are competing in some of the nation’s top events on a regular basis. One of those events is the Rio Verde Invitational, hosted by WMU in Rio Verde, Ariz. The event draws programs from across the nation and grows in participation with each passing campaign. Trout was named head coach on May 21, 1998. A class “A” member of the Professional Golfer’s Association (PGA) since 1988, Trout brought with her impressive credentials to WMU. Prior to WMU, she served as head golf professional at the Shoal Creek Golf Center in Kansas City, Mo. Aside from her PGA duties, she also owned and operated “Solid Contact,” a consulting service that offered instruction, seminars, promotions and marketing plans to golf businesses and facilities. Her efforts earned her recognition in several industry publications. Trout’s instructional and administrative experience includes stints as the head golf professional at the Loch Lloyd Country Club in Belton, Mo., home to the Senior PGA Tour’s Southwestern Bell Classic, and head teaching professional at the Crystal Mountain Resort in Michigan (1990-91). Trout has prior experience working in collegiate athletics as well, working in a variety of roles at Alma College, her alma mater. As a member of Alma’s staff she held jobs as assistant athletic director for women, assistant women’s basketball coach, head softball coach, intramural director and sports information director.

Trout earned a bachelor’s degree in history at Alma (1980) and obtained a master’s in physical education at Central Michigan (1983). She was also a member of the University of Arizona golf team for one season (1976).

2009-10 Western Michigan Women’s Golf

This spring’s field will include Arkansas-Little Rock, Bradley, Cincinnati, Kansas (2009 team champion), Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri State, Northern Arizona, Penn State (first year in tournament), Southern Illinois and Xavier. Joining the Broncos from the Mid-American Conference will be Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Eastern Michigan, Ohio and Toledo. This year’s event will be the eighth annual Rio Verde Collegiate Invitational. Western Michigan will host a field of the nation’s top programs at the Rio Verde Country Club in Rio Verde, Ariz., on March 5-7. The Broncos claimed the inaugural title in 2003, besting the field of 11 with a team score of 614. Erica Bieniek had the season’s best 18-hole (70) and 36-hole (144) individual performance during the event. The event expanded to 54 holes in 2005 and continues to invite some of the region’s elite programs.

WMU finished fifth the following year, ninth four seasons ago, fifth in 2006, sixth in 2007 and 2008 and ninth in 2009. The field has grown from 11 in the first year of existence to 18 in 2005, 2007 and 2008. The 2009 tournament saw two firsts. It was the first time the event had a title sponsor and it was the largest field in tournament history with 20 teams competing for the title. It is a true testament to the progress of the Western Michigan women’s golf program since its inception in 1998. Head coach Cindy Trout, the program’s only head coach, and her team have proven the ability to compete at some of the top tournaments in collegiate golf as well as host first class events of their own. “The Rio Verde Invitational has really become a very special event, and it’s because of the people who make it work and the ones who participate. Of course, golf is the common denominator when we all get together, yet it’s really about the nature of Rio Verde, and the relationships that we all develop that make it unique. I don’t think there is another collegiate tournament like this one anywhere in the country. It’s an experience I wish every collegiate student-athlete - in ANY sport - could enjoy.” — Head Coach Cindy Trout.

BRONCO GOLF AT RIO VERDE

Rio Verde Invitational Western Michigan golf has hosted at least one event in each of the 11 seasons the program has been in existence. It began with a Bronco Triangular in the spring of 1999, an event WMU captured with a score of 375. It has grown from that point, as has the Western Michigan women’s golf program. This year the Brown & Gold will again host a high profile event in the desert of Arizona as the Broncos welcome a fantastic field back for the 2010 Rio Verde Invitational.

Kathy Beauregard, the Director of Athletics at Western Michigan University, has been involved with the Broncos in several capacities over the course of the past 29 years. She is the second-longest serving athletic director in the Mid-American Conference.

KATHY BEAUREGARD

Beauregard arrived in Kalamazoo as a coach before moving into administration and is entering her 12th season as mentor of one of the top programs in the MAC.

Along with four MAC titles (men’s basketball, men’s and women’s soccer and men’s tennis) in 2003-04, the Broncos also enjoyed an increased level of success in the classroom. WMU’s graduation rate of 83 percent in 2003 ranked eighth nationally and featured a program grade point average of nearly 3.00. On the playing field in 2002-03, the athletics campaign was highlighted by a pair of conference titles in women’s basketball and softball. The men’s basketball team also made a postseason appearance, competing in the National Invitation Tournament. Postseason appearances by the WMU football, volleyball and men’s tennis team highlighted the program’s 2000-01 athletic competition.

WMU athletic facilities have greatly improved under Beauregard’s leadership. The $8-million dollar Bill Brown Football Alumni Center and the $21-million Seelye Athletic Indoor Center have benefited numerous sports teams and provide top-notch facilities for Bronco student-athletes. The locker rooms at Lawson Ice Arena were renovated and completed over the past year and the department continues to raise funds for the Hyames Field Renovation Project. WMU is in the midst of building a two million dollar state-of-the-art facility and Field Turf was also installed at Waldo Stadium during the Summer of 2006.

The 1999-2000 campaign was highlighted by the football team’s West Division title and trip to the MAC Championship. The women’s tennis squad captured the MAC Tourney title and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the second-straight year and the women’s basketball squad made its second-consecutive appearance in the WNIT.

Heavily involved in her profession, Beauregard assumed the chair position of the NCAA Olympic Sports Liaison Committee in 2001, a position which she held for two years. She represented WMU as a member of the NCAA Championships Cabinet and NCAA Football Bowl Certification Committee and currently serves on the NCAA Diversity and Inclusion Committee.

Previously the senior associate athletic director (1993-97), she supervised all revenue sports, the University’s compliance with NCAA rules, academic services, student-athlete welfare, and athletic marketing and communications.

The 2008-09 year saw the Bronco volleyball and men’s tennis programs capture regular season MAC crowns. The volleyball team advanced to the round of 16 at the NCAA Tournament, while the Bronco football team participated in its second bowl in three seasons and the men’s basketball team won yet another MAC West title.

In just her second year (1998-99), Beauregard provided support which helped the Bronco men’s athletic squads jump from 10th to first place in the Reese Cup standings, giving Western Michigan a share of its first all-sports trophy in 17 years.

Beauregard initially came to WMU in 1979 as head women’s gymnastics coach. In nine seasons (1980-88), she produced two MAC title teams and was twice named the conference’s coach of the year. Beauregard has been active in numerous community service organizations, including Kalamazoo Rotary, the American Heart Association, Big Brothers/Big Sisters and the Glowing Embers Girl Scouts Council.

The 2007-08 academic year saw success within the department, on the playing field and in the classroom. WMU Athletics announced the renovation of historic Hyames Field. Heading into the future, the facility will be known as Robert J. Bobb Stadium and will undergo $2.0 million of work over the next year. Renovations to Sorensen Courts, Fran Ebert Field and upcoming work to the men’s basketball locker rooms all highlight Beauregard’s dedication to moving WMU Athletics forward.

Honored by numerous organizations throughout her career, Beauregard was awarded both the Woman of Achievement Award (YWCA) and Athena Award (Kalamazoo Chamber of Commerce) in 2002.

Athletically, WMU’s tennis programs found success yet again with both winning a regular season MAC title and the men’s program capturing the tournament title to earn a berth in the 2008 NCAA Tournament. Both Dave Morin and Besty Kuhle were named MAC Coaches of the Year for the second-straight season. The men’s basketball and women’s volleyball programs captured MAC West titles during the past athletic season. A pair of Bronco track student-athletes earned All-America honors with Becky Horn earning the nod during the indoor and outdoor seasons and finishing third in the 800m at the 2008 NCAA Outdoor Championships.

In 2000, Beauregard received the Hope College Distinguished Alumni Award from her alma mater.

Beauregard is a native of Kalamazoo and graduate of Loy Norrix High School. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Hope College in 1979 and a master’s degree from WMU in 1981.

She and husband, Rick, have a 18-year-old son, Brad, who will attend WMU in 2009. Rick retired from Kalamazoo Public Schools after 32 years of service and began Beauregard Home Services in the Fall of 2006.

Beauregard ensured the longevity of WMU’s football and men’s basketball programs by restructuring Bill Cubit’s and Steve Hawkins’ contracts in 2007 and 2008, respectively. WMU Athletics also welcomed Tasha McDowell as the fifth head coach of WMU’s women’s basketball program in 2008. Academically, WMU boasted a pair of Academic All-Americans in Anthony Gebhart (first team) and Joe Reitz (second team). Gebhart was the first football representative since 1998. Volleyball, baseball and gymnastics finished in the top 10 among other like programs in the APR and WMU football had the highest APR score in the MAC for the 2006-07 campaign. Overall, 415 student-athletes finished 2007-08 with a 3.0 or better cumulative GPA. In 2006-07, men’s and women’s tennis not only repeated as MAC Tournament champions but captured regular season titles as well. Both Morin and Kuhle earned MAC Coach of the Year honors. The WMU football team participated in the program’s first postseason bowl game since 1988. The Broncos boasted three NCAA statistical champions in five categories ­— Ameer Ismail (FB - sacks and tackles for loss); Carrie Moore (WBB - points per game) and Mark Letestu (HOCKEY - freshman scoring and short-handed goals). Western Michigan continued to pursue excellence in the classroom in 2006-07 as 26 student-athletes in 14 sports earned Academic All-MAC status. WMU had five of its programs honored as being in the top-10 percent in their respective sport in the announcement for their excellence in the classroom over the years identified in the most recent APR; baseball, men’s basketball, gymnastics, women’s tennis and volleyball. The Broncos boasted five academic all-district selections and a pair of academic all-americans in Joe Reitz and Carrie Moore. Moore and Ismail earned All-America status in their respective sports with Moore receiving honorable mention for Kodak All-American and Ismail earning Second Team AP All-American.

In 2005-06, Beauregard oversaw a department that captured the Jacoby Cup Trophy, awarded to the top women’s program in the MAC based on sports standings. WMU has now won the Jacoby and Reese (men’s overall sports award) trophies during Beauregard’s tenure. The Broncos garnered three regular season titles — gymnastics, softball and women’s tennis and two MAC Tournament titles — gymnastics and women’s tennis. Under Beauregard’s direction, WMU also won its 100th MAC title all-time in 2005-06. The 2004-05 athletic campaign continued what has become common place at Western Michigan. Team and individual success began in the fall and continued through the spring, highlighted by a MAC Championship in women’s tennis. The strength of the women’s programs as a group allowed WMU to finish second in the Jacoby Cup.

Dr. John M. Dunn became the eighth president of Western Michigan University on July 1, 2007. He was appointed by the WMU Board of Trustees following a nationwide search.

An educator for more than 35 years, Dr. Dunn was dean of the University of Utah’s College of Health before moving to SIUC, holding that post from 1995 to 2002. Before that, he was at Oregon State University for 20 years, last serving as associate provost there. His earlier positions at Oregon State included assistant dean of Health and Human Performance, chair of the Department of Exercise and Sport Science and director of the university’s Special Physical and Motor Fitness Clinic. Internationally known for his research and writing about the long-term health of individuals with disabilities, Dr. Dunn is the author of more than 50 professional papers and book chapters. He is a past president of the Research Consortium of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance; past editor of Quest, a professional publication for kinesiology scholars; and past president of the American Academy of Kinesiology and Physical Education. Since moving to Michigan, President Dunn has been actively engaged with state and community efforts that focus on quality-of-life issues and enhancing economic development. By appointment of Gov. Jennifer Granholm, he represents the University and West Michigan as a member of the Michigan Strategic Economic Investment and Commercialization Board. He also is a member of the boards of the Bronson Healthcare Group, First National Bank, Southwest Michigan First, the Gilmore Keyboard Festival and the WMU Foundation. He is also the 2009 chairman of the Greater Kalamazoo Area United Way campaign.
