ROBERT J. BOBB STADIUM

ROBERT J. BOBB A $1 million dollar challenge gift from Chicago equity investor, Robert J. Bobb, got the ball rolling in the restoration of the Bronco baseball facilities. Subsequently, the structure has taken the name Robert J. Bobb Stadium at Hyames Field. Construction on the baseball stadium project began in the summer of 2008 and is nearing the end of Phase II prior to the start of the 2010 season. The major renovations will place WMU’s baseball facilities once again at the top of the Mid-American Conference and the Midwest. Prior to the 2010 season, all chairback and bench seating areas, home and visitor dugouts, foul-line fencing and grandstand restoration have been completed. A walkway and new entrance with handicap accessibility behind home plate have been completed and new decorative exterior fencing has been added. The project will continue this spring and summer with the installation of a new press box, bathrooms, concessions, ticket office and stadium signage. Former Bronco baseball players, WMU Alumni and friends have made $1.9 million in gifts and pledges in support of the project as of March 2010.


THE HISTORY OF HYAMES The playing field is named after former head baseball coach and Athletic Director Judson Hyames and was dedicated in the spring of 1939. Hyames coached at WMU from 1922-36, posting a 166-62-2 record during his 15-year tenure. He served as the school’s Athletic Director from 1937 until his death in 1949. Carved out of a hill alongside Stadium Drive, Hyames Field was able to offer a unique playing environment. Features include hill banks down both foul lines, in particular the right field side, which is an open grassy knoll popular with spectators. Construction on the venue began in 1934 as a $250,000 Federal Works Project that also included the construction of Waldo Stadium. The site was the home of the first two College World Series in 1947 and 1948.

AT HYAMES FIELD


DONALD J. SEELYE


The offices of the baseball coaching staff are located on the third floor of the Seelye Center. The offices overlook the turf bay practice facility from the east and overlook Waldo Stadium to the west, with the offices also doubling as suites on football game days.

The Donald J. Seelye Athletic Center is a state-of-the-art indoor facility that serves as a year-round home for Bronco baseball. The facility is also used extensively by the WMU softball, golf, soccer and football programs. The $25 million dollar facility houses an 80-yard AstroPlay synthetic turf and encompasses 120,000 square feet. The enormous indoor turf bay reaches a height of eight stories in the center, allowing for batting practice and fielding drills during poor weather. The Seelye Center combines modern amenities with ties to WMUs rich athletic heritage. Inside, the facility features an expansive W Club Room, multiple locker rooms, a fully-equipped weight room next door to a training room, along with coaches offices that double as corporate suites on football game days. In addition, the facade of Oakland Gymnasium was incorporated into the new building, blending a touch of the past with the future. Completed in 2003, the Seelye Center was made possible through the leadership gift from the Seelye family. Don Seelye was a loyal supporter of Bronco Athletics, a community leader and successful businessman.

COLLEGE WORLD SERIES KALAMAZOO, MICH. 1947, 1948 Long before teams dreamed of Omaha, Kalamazoo was the desired destination at season’s end for college ballplayers across the nation. Western Michigan’s Hyames Field started it all, hosting the first ever College World Series in 1947. The series would return to Kalamazoo again in 1948, before moving to Wichita, Kan., in 1949 and finding its permanent and current location in Omaha, Neb., in 1950. The 1947 and ‘48 College World Series were set in a best of three games format. California won the first championship in two games, defeating Yale (14-4, 8-7). Yale made the trip back to Kalamazoo in 1948, but again came up short, falling in three games to USC (1-3, 8-3, 2-9). The 1947 contest was particularly memorable, featuring future American League MVP Jackie Jensen of Cal in the outfield. In the same contest, future United States President George H.W. Bush played first base for the Yale squad.

The Story of ’55 ... The 1955 NCAA Men’s Division I College World Series featured eight schools (Arizona, Colgate, Northern Colorado, Oklahoma A&M, Springfield College, Southern California, Wake Forest and Western Michigan) who battled in a double-elimination tournament to determine the national champion. A total of 15 games over a week’s period of time, beginning June 10 and ending on June 16, were played at Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha, Neb. The Kalamazoo community was no stranger to the College World Series, as WMU hosted the first two world series at Hyames Field in 1947 and 1948. Head coach Charlie Maher wasn’t a newcomer to Omaha either, guiding the Broncos to a third-place finish in the CWS in 1952. The Brown & Gold was a force to contend with in 1955, rattling off an unblemished 9-0 record in the Mid-American Conference. The team had just seven losses against 25 wins that season, doing so in an impressive fashion, scoring a total of 303 runs, while giving up just 134 to opponents.

A crowd of 2,042 gathered to watch the 1955 national championship game at Rosenblatt Stadium, and both teams were in search of their first NCAA crown in their second appearance. WAKE FOREST IP H R ER BB K Walsh 2.2 4 3 3 4 3 Wake Forest jumped ahead 3-0 Fichter 1.0 1 3 0 2 0 after two-and-a-half innings, McGinley 5.1 3 0 0 0 4 roughing up WMU starter Gary Graham for three runs on three hits. Miki Schwarzkoff, who maintained an 8-0 record entering the game, came in and got the Broncos out of a jam in the third. Western Michigan fired back with six runs in the next two home at bats, taking a 6-3 lead into the fifth. The offensive explosion caused Wake Forest to make some changes on the mound as well, as starter Bill Walsh was pulled after 2.2 innings and reliever Buck Fichter was replaced by Jack McGinley in the fourth. McGinley would prove to be the Deacons’ saving grace, as he surrendered just three hits the rest of the game.

Western Michigan breezed through the first three games of the College World Series, beating Arizona (4-1, June 10), Oklahoma A&M (5-4, June 12) and pounding Wake Forest, who was previously undefeated in the series (9-0, June 11). With two games left and no losses in the double-elimination tournament, WMU had guaranteed itself a place in the national title game. Western Michigan had a chance to send the Demon Deacons home in game four on June 13, but Wake Forest was able to stay alive in the tournament with a 10-7 win over the Broncos.

Wake Forest managed to put three runs on Schwarzkoff in the top of the fifth, evening the score at six apiece. The Broncos met their demise in the eighth when Luther McKeel walked and advanced two bases on as many passed balls by the time Schwarzkoff fanned two men. With two outs and the winning run on third, Linwood Holt drove a single through the middle of the diamond for the all-important run. Unable to muster a score in their final two at bats, the Broncos fell by a 7-6 final.

WMU’s Freed Messner made history that game, hitting the only pinch-hit grand slam home run in College World Series history in the top of the eighth. It was also Messner’s only hit of the series (1-for-12).

Lowell Johnson was the top slugger for WMU, batting in two while going 3-for-5 from the plate, with two runs scored. Al Nagel and Tom Czyz each drove in a run. Bill LaJoie scored twice, knocking two hits, including a double. Nagel and Leland David each had a hit and scored once. Schwarzkoff tallied a single.

With the loss, WMU would have to wait in the championship round with one loss for the winner of the play-in game between Wake Forest and Oklahoma A&M. Wake Forest went on to win, 2-0, setting up the third straight game between the Broncos and its ACC opponent.

Western Michigan’s run in 1955 was the best ever in school history. It was one of 10 NCAA Tournament appearances over a span of 29 years under Maher. His teams advanced to a total of six College World Series (1952, 1955, 1958, 1959, 1961, 1963).

• In his overall coaching experience, Ford has worked with a total of 76 MLB draft selections. • WMU has ranked in the top 10 percent in the NCAA Academic Progress Report (APR) two out of the last three years. • Western Michigan has produced 10 All-Mid-American Conference selctions under Ford and two MAC Freshman of the Year. • Ford mentored the school’s all-time hits leader in Mark Abro (239 hits).

Randy Ford is entering his 26th season of coaching and his sixth at the helm of the Western Michigan University baseball program after being named the seventh head baseball coach in WMU history in July of 2004. Ford’s goals for the program are simple, to produce quality students and highly-competitive ball clubs on a yearly basis, while helping his student-athletes mature on and off the field. Six players have been selected to the All-MAC First Team and four members of the Brown & Gold have been named to the all-conference second team druing Ford’s first five years. Eight Broncos have also been drafted in Ford’s first five seasons, and WMU produced the 2006 and 2008 MAC Freshman of the Year, in right-handed pitchers Ethan Hollingsworth and Brian Stroud. Both were also named Louisville Slugger All-Americans. WMU compiled a 29-23-1 record in 2008 with a MAC record of 12-12. Ford recorded his 100th career win with 12-11 extra inning victory over Illinois Stat. The Broncos started the season hot with a 12-4-1 record in tournaments in Tennessee, Florida, and Kentucky, before traveling back to Kalamazoo, where they posted a 10-5 record at Hyames Field. Western Michigan advanced to the MAC Tournament for the third time in Ford’s four seasons and boasted five All-MAC performers, including the Broncos’ entire starting rotation. WMU’s five honorees were the most for the university since the 1995 season, when the Brown & Gold had six players named All-MAC. Western Michigan did not go unnoticed in the Major League Draft, as three players were selected in 2008, the most ever in a season under Ford. Hollingsworth (4th round - Colorado), Billy Morrison (9th - Seattle) and Zach Gentile (47th - Boston) were all summoned and two of the three signed with their respective clubs. The Broncos have produced a MLB selection every year during Ford’s tenure, as Kevan Hess was selected in the 2009 draft by the Detroit Tigers in the 14th round. In four of those five years, WMU has had at least one pitcher drafted.

42

In his first year as head coach, Ford managed to take a team that had won only seven conference games prior to his arrival to the 2005 Mid-American Conference Tournament. WMU earned the fourth seed after starting the season with a 9-0 record. It was the first time since 1999 that the Broncos had participated at the MAC Tournament. Ford also improved the Broncos’ numbers on the mound, as they went from a 5.71 ERA in 2004 to a 4.44 ERA in 2005, and dropped that number to a 3.30 ERA in


2010 Western Michigan Baseball MAC play, which ranked third best in the conference. Western Michigan continued its strides on the mound in 2006, posting the second best ERA in the MAC with a 4.07 and remained fairly consistent, despite a young staff in 2007, compiling a 4.87 ERA. In 2008, the Broncos had the second best ERA in the conference at 5.09 and all three starting pitchers ranked in the top 16 in the league. During MAC play, Hollingsworth and Stroud ranked third and fourth, respectively, with ERA’s of 3.74 and 3.95.

Other draftees Ford has had an opportunity to coach include John VanderWal, Matt Mieske, Joe Humphries and Adam Rosales, all of whom are former WMU standouts, along with Penn State notables David Aardsma and Nate Bump. Bump was drafted in the first round from Penn State and played in the 2003 season for the World Series Champion Florida Marlins. The hiring of Ford marked the return of the Morenci, Mich., native to Western Michigan University. Ford spent four years as an assistant under former Bronco head coach Fred Decker from 1985-88. Ford began his association with the Brown & Gold as a three-year letterwinner (1977-79). A walk-on, left-handed pitcher, Ford compiled a career record of 17-4 and a 2.91 ERA. He earned All-Mid-American Conference First Team honors and all-district recognition as a junior in 1979, registering an 8-0 record and a 2.04 ERA.

Before his arrival, Ford spent 16 seasons at Penn State, serving as pitching coach and recruiting coordinator. During his tenure, the Nittany Lions made the postseason seven times (1991, 1996, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2004) – advancing to the Super Regional in 2000. While at University Park, Ford helped PSU capture the 1996 Big Ten regular-season championship and coached 56 players who were either drafted or signed by Major League Baseball. In addition to his baseball duties, he also served as a faculty member with the department of kinesiology.

HEAD COACH RANDY FORD

In his second season at Western Michigan, the Broncos finished tied for second in the MAC West, with a 16-9 conference record. Two players, Dan O’Brien and Kyle Maunus, were drafted at the conclusion of the season. In 2007, right-handed pitcher Derek Schlecker was a draft selection of the LA Angels.

In 1979, Ford was selected in the 11th-round of the Major League Baseball Draft by the Toronto Blue Jays. During a four-year professional career (1979-82), Ford advanced as high as Double A ball, earning team MVP honors with the Kingston Blue Jays of the Class A Carolina League in 1981. After his career was cut short by shoulder problems, Ford returned to WMU to complete a degree in physical education with minors in biology and coaching in 1985. Randy, 52, and his wife Lynn have two children, Jeremy (23) and Katie (20). The Ford family resides in Schoolcraft, Mich.

2010 Western Michigan Baseball Providing leadership in education and diversity, the Mid-American Conference moves into its 63rd year of service to the student-athlete.

The MAC tied a league record in 2008 with five schools participating in bowl games – Buffalo (International); Ball State (GMAC); Central Michigan (Motor City); Western Michigan (Texas); and Northern Illinois (Independence Bowl). The 2008 season also saw the first MAC football team ranked in the Top 25 since 2003. Ball State was ranked as high as 12th in the BCS Standings, 12th in the AP and 13th in the USA Today Poll. The Cardinals were ranked in all three polls for 10 straight weeks. MAC football teams won a league record four games versus opponents from the Big Ten. Toledo became the first MAC team to ever beat Michigan in Ann Arbor; Ball State won its first-ever game against a Big Ten foe when the Cardinals beat Indiana; Central Michigan also defeated Indiana; and Western Michigan beat Illinois in a game played at Ford Field. In its partnership with ESPN, the MAC signed an eight-year rights agreement through the 20162017 academic year for football, as well as men’s and women’s basketball. The deal will be the most extensive in the 63-year history of the conference. The new deal calls for a minimum of 25 events annually to be produced and aired on an ESPN platform including the men’s and women’s basketball championships, a regular-season MAC presence on ESPN, the Marathon MAC Football Championship and a minimum of 11 regular-season football games. Women’s athletics shined for the MAC this past year. For the first time in the history of the conference the MAC sent three teams to the NCAA women’s volleyball tournament (Miami, Ohio and Western Michigan). Western Michigan became only the third team to make it to the Sweet Sixteen (Ohio 2005 and Western Michigan 1983). In women’s basketball MAC Tournament Champion Ball State upset perennial national power Tennessee in the first round of the NCAA tournament handing the Lady Vols their first ever loss in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. The victory was named “Pontiac Game Changing Performance” of the 2009 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament, while first year head coach Kelly Packard was named Maggie Dixon Division I Rookie Coach of the Year by the WBCA. Akron continued its dominance of MAC men’s soccer with its 11 regular-season championship to go along with its sixth MAC Tournament title – both league records. The Zips were ranked as high as No. 2 during the season and reached the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament before falling to Northwestern, 1-0. Steve Zakuani, who helped guide the University of Akron men’s soccer program to a record-setting campaign in 2008, was the first overall pick of the 2009 Major League Soccer Super Draft. Zakuani earned 2008 MAC Men’s Soccer Player of the Year honors and was a finalist for the Hermann Trophy, which goes to the best men’s soccer player in the country. The conference now has national leadership positions on the following NCAA committees: Warde Manual, Buffalo (Academic Cabinet); Susan Lipnickey, Miami (Leadership Council and Infractions Appeals); Derrick Gragg, Eastern Michigan (Legislative Council); Dr. John Peters, Northern Illinois (Board of Directors); Tom Collins, Ball State (Amateurism Cabinet); Kelly Andrews, Toledo (Awards, benefits, Expenses & Financial Aid Cabinet); Stephannnie Harvey-Vandenburg, Eastern

The MAC also has representation on Division I Sport Committees and related governing groups: Cathy O’Donnell, Kent State (Field Hockey); Dave Heeke, Central Michigan (Football Issues); Marling “Newt” Engle, Akron (Rifle); Karin Lee, Ball State (Tennis); Rich Ceronie (Track & Field); Laing Kennedy, Kent State (Men’s Basketball); Charlie Coles, Miami (Men’s Basketball Issues); Jim Schaus, Ohio and Reggie Witherspoon, Buffalo (Men’s Basketball Rules); Steven Cady, Miami (Men’s Ice Hockey); Mary Lu Gribschaw, Akron (Men’s Soccer); Greg Christopher, Bowling Green (Women’s Basketball); Anucha Brown-Sanders, Buffalo and Donyale Canada, MAC (Women’s Basketball Issues); Curt Miller, Bowling Green (Women’s Basketball Rules); Jerry Reighard, Central Michigan (Gymnastics); Matt Wolfert, Ball State (Women’s Soccer); Dee Abrahamson, Northern Illinois (Women’s Softball Rules); Derek van der Merwe, Central Michigan (Wrestling). From two-time Super Bowl quarterback winning Ben Roethlisberger (Miami University), NFL Defensive MVP James Harrison (Kent State University), British Open winner Ben Curtis (Kent State University), World Series winning manager Bob Brenly (Ohio University) and Olympic bobsled team member Brock Kreitzburgh (University of Toledo), the Mid-American Conference continues to excel in producing leaders in the world of athletics. History of the MAC Based in Cleveland since July 1999 following a 15-year stay in Toledo, Ohio, the MAC has established historic measurements in both football and men’s and women’s basketball since moving to Northeast Ohio. The Mid-American Conference was founded as a five-school league on February 24, 1946 in Columbus, Ohio with Ohio, Butler, Cincinnati, Wayne State and Western Reserve admitted as charter members. The Mid-American Conference has 12 full-time schools and a 13th, Temple, for football only. Comprising the East Division is the University of Akron (joined in 1992), Bowling Green State University (1952), University at Buffalo (1998), Kent State University (1951), Miami University (1947), Ohio University (1946) and Temple University (2007). The West Division members are Ball State University (1973), Central Michigan University (1971), Eastern Michigan University (1971), Northern Illinois University (1975-86, 1997), University of Toledo (1950) and Western Michigan University (1947).

The league has grown its commitment to championships by expanding to six its number of neutral site post season events – football (Detroit’s Ford Field), volleyball (Toledo’s SeaGate Centre), men’s and women’s basketball (Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena), softball (Akron’s Firestone Stadium) and most recently baseball (Chillicothe’s VA Memorial Stadium).

MID-AMERICAN HISTORY & RECORDS CONFERENCE

Since its inception in 1946, the Mid-American Conference has progressively grown and developed into one of the most aggressive Division I conferences in the country. One of only 11 football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) conferences, the MAC named Dr. Jon Steinbrecher as its eighth commissioner in the 63-year history of the league this past March. Steinbrecher came to the MAC after serving for six years as the commissioner of the Ohio Valley Conference.

In 1946 men’s basketball was the first competitive sport in the MAC, which now sponsors a total 23 sports. Women’s sports were brought into the conference’s structure in 1980. For men, championships (11) are sponsored in football, basketball, baseball, cross country, soccer, swimming and diving, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, wrestling, golf and tennis. For women, championships (12) are sponsored in basketball, softball, volleyball, cross country, field hockey, golf, soccer, swimming and diving, gymnastics, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field and tennis.

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.
