This is IU East Indiana University East grew out of an extension established at Earlham College that was operated by Earlham and Indiana University. In 1967, the arrangement was expanded to include Purdue and Ball State universities and the extension became the Eastern Indiana Center of Earlham College. In 1969, reflecting the community’s response to this opportunity to take state university courses at home, Richmond citizens formed an association known as Eastern Indiana Community College, Inc., to raise funds for the construction of a new campus. Following a successful campaign in which they raised over $1 million, members of the community college organization, with the consent of the four education institutions involved in the center, requested Indiana University to establish a regional campus in Richmond to assume responsibility for the operation. The Indiana General Assembly approved this plan, and on July 1, 1971, the Eastern Indiana Center for Earlham College became Indiana University East, the sixth campus in the Indiana University regional system. On October 3, 1972, ground was broken at the new campus site north of Richmond. The first building, an all-purpose academic facility named Whitewater Hall, was completed in late 1974 and dedicated February 23, 1975. Ground was broken for a new library/classroom building on August 8, 1990. It was dedicated as the Brice E. Hayes Hall on June 12, 1992. The third classroom building on the IU East campus was completed in May 1995. The building, which was dedicated as Middlefork Hall on June 12, 1996, houses the fine arts program and classrooms and

laboratories for the School of Education and the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. In 2009, the building was renamed Tom Raper Hall in recognition of the largest gift in IU East’s history. The fourth building, dedicated as Springwood Hall in November 1999, houses the Graf Recreation Center, University College, the Chancellor’s and Campus Life offices, as well as general and specialty classrooms. Additionally, the IU East Henry County Danielson Learning Center was dedicated in May 1999 to serve the citizens of Henry County. IU

Season Preview Red Wolves want to advance program’s progress in 2012 Survive and advance. It applies to almost everything the Indiana University East track and field program hopes to accomplish during the 2012 season. Survive and advance. It applies to the recent handoff of the coaching baton to first-year coach Brett Crowley. It applies to the week-to-week challenge of putting in the work in practices and improving at each meet. It applies to the Red Wolves’ hunt for the program’s first NAIA national qualifiers. “We are trying to survive the coaching change and the upheaval that has brought on, as well as trying to advance individually in terms of improving upon our individual performances,” said Crowley, who took the helm of the IU East track and field program for the spring upon prior coach Tyler Daugherty’s return to his native Iowa. Crowley is the Director of Student Support Services for IU East and is the architect of the IU East Academic Success Plan. The IU East women’s track and field team finished second in the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in 2011. The Red Wolves hope to improve that mark in 2012, the program’s second full season. “I’m looking forward to it,” Crowley said. “We have a lot of talent. I am eager to see how they do against competition and looking forward to a good spring.” The roster IU East finished second in the KIAC with a threewomen roster in 2011, so one could view the Red Wolves’ five-women roster for 2012 as a luxury.

Redshirt senior Vanessa Legg (Lynn, Ind./Randolph Southern High School) is the reigning KIAC women’s track and field athlete of the year and has the potential to score points in almost any event, particularly in jumps and throws. She won the KIAC title in the high jump, shot put and javelin in 2011. She holds the IU East school record in seven outdoor events. Redshirt junior Kait Ervin (West Alexandria, Ohio/ Twin Valley South High School) is the reigning KIAC champion in the discus and holds IU East’s school records in the hammer, shot put and discus. Two freshmen join with Ervin to give IU East a deep throwing corps. Andrea Brower (Eaton, Ohio/Eaton High School) was a two-time Ohio state qualifier in the shot put. Dominique Green (Indianapolis, Ind./ Lawrence North High School) was part of an Indiana state champion team. Another freshman, Kesla Klingler (Hollansburg, Ohio/ Tri-Village High School), will be IU East’s middle distance specialist. “Our depth is in our throwers,” Crowley said. “I think Kelsa will surprise us, and Vanessa is going to lead the way in the all-around things.” The schedule The Red Wolves will compete in five meets in five weeks starting with the J.O. Huntsman Relays at Wabash College on March 17. Other notable meets in the opening stretch of the season include the Polar Bear Invitational on March 24 at Indiana Wesleyan

Season Preview ... Preview, continued from Page 7 University, site of the NAIA Track and Field National Championship, and the Little State Championship on April 13-14 at IUPUI, a meet open to all non-NCAA Division I programs in Indiana. IU East will make its first appearance at the Hanover College Invitational on March 31. The Red Wolves will make a return trip to the Anderson University Raven Outdoor Invitational on April 5. The Anderson meet has been the site of at least one IU East individual win in each of the past two springs. IU East will take a two-week break to gear up for the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference meet on April 28 at Berea College. Red Wolves close to national meet qualifying standards will have an opportunity to compete at the North Central College Dr. Keeler Invitational on May 10-11. “Each week we want to show improvement across the meets we will compete in,” Crowley said. The goals The KIAC coaches picked IU East to repeat its performance from 2011. The Red Wolves women were the No. 2 pick in the 2012 preseason pol. Crowley says if the Red Wolves “survive” the intense weeks of training in March and April, they can “advance” their conference standing - and maybe advance some athletes to the national meet. “Hopefully we will have as many NAIA qualifiers as can,” Crowley said, “and be in position in late April to compete for the KIAC conference title.”

Only six men’s and women’s events were completed when the meet was suspended due to stormy conditions at about 9 p.m. Team points did not count, but individual results in completed events were official.
