COMMUNITY SERVICE Representing West Virginia University, the city of Morgantown and the state of West Virginia in a charitable manner is important to the WVU women’s tennis team. Besides training and studying everyday as part of their studentathlete duties, the Mountaineers are always ready and willing to give back to those that make Morgantown a kind-hearted and good-natured community. The tennis team is constantly involved in community service activities throughout the state. The team has a continuing relationship with Habitat for Humanity and the United States Tennis Association (USTA), which makes the team aware of any volunteer openings in the area.

STUDENT-ATHLETE SERVICES

West Virginia University’s graduation rate for student-athletes has been impressive, to say the least, over the past eight years. The ratio of student-athletes graduating to the general student body has increased almost every year. WVU’s combined varsity athletic teams have an Academic Progress Rate (APR) score of 975 according to data released today by the NCAA. The APR is based upon eligibility and retention of student-athletes over a four-year period, used as an assessment of real-time academic success. WVU’s average APR score of 975 is up one point from last year’s average is higher than the NCAA’s overall four-year APR average score of 973. For the 2010-11 academic year, West Virginia had three teams with perfect 1,000 scores: gymnastics, rowing and men’s soccer. The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) provides a forum for the “voice of the student-athlete” on WVU’s campus.

They offer input on the rules, regulations and policies that affect student-athletes’ lives on NCAA member institution campuses.

Tina Samara Head Coach Third Season players to attain top 20 regional rankings in the Southern Region. According to the 2009-10 grade report, Samara’s team recorded the highest grade point average of all sport programs at Louisiana-Lafayette.

At West Virginia (2010-Present) Tina Samara enters her third season as the West Virginia University women’s tennis head coach after being appointed to lead the program in September 2010. Samara leads WVU into what may be its biggest transition in program history, as it moves into one of the nation’s top tennis conferences – the Big 12. In doing so, the third-year coach will send a young, talented team that was overhauled after a 4-16 season in 2011-12. In her first year at WVU, the Mountaineers finished the season with an 8-14 overall record and an appearance at the Big East Women’s Tennis Tournament. The season was highlighted by victories over Pitt, Connecticut and Duquesne. In total, three WVU players finished the season with at least 15 victories.

At Colorado (2007-08) Samara spent two seasons (2007-08) as the assistant women’s tennis coach at Colorado. In her first season at CU, the team finished 16-8 overall, the best record since 1999, and went 9-2 in the Big 12 for a share of third place. The Buffaloes closed out the season nationally ranked No. 37, the highest ranking in eight years.

Collegiate and Professional Success With more than 10 years of experience as a tennis pro, Samara competed on the USTA/ WTA/LTA Pro tour and played three-straight seasons representing Norway at the Federation Cup (1996-98). As a player at Georgia, Samara earned All-America honors in 1994 and 1995, and partnered up for a victory in the deciding match of the Bulldogs’ first-ever NCAA title in 1994. The pair finished the year ranked No. 1 in NCAA doubles in 1995 and went on to win the National Clay Court Doubles title in 1996. The team won the National Indoor title in 1994 and 1995. Samara was later listed in Sports Illustrated “Faces in the Crowd.” She was crowned the 1993 Collegiate Grasscourt singles champion, was a member of Georgia’s 1994 SEC title team and was a twotime national team indoor champion.

Personal Samara graduated from Georgia with a bachelor’s degree in family and consumer sciences. A native of Oyster Bay, N.Y., Samara is married to Brian Sullivan.

At Louisiana-Lafayette (2008-10)

WVU Career Coaches’ Records

Brian Sullivan joined the women’s tennis program in October 2010 as an assistant coach. A native of Denver, Colo., Sullivan has coached at the national, collegiate and professional levels and was previously a volunteer assistant coach under coach Tina Samara at Louisiana-Lafayette. In addition to working with the Ragin’ Cajuns, Sullivan was also the tennis pro at the City Club at River Ranch, where he developed a new junior program for the tournament players while training adults and nationally-ranked players. From 2003-08, Sullivan was the Academy Director for the Harvest House Millennium Hotel in Boulder, Colo. In 2006, Marek Dvorak and Jeremy Wurtzman were among the players he coached. Dvorak was an NCAA Division I player and eighth-ranked junior from the Czech Republic, while Wurtzman was a member of the USTA High Performance National Team and reached a world ranking of No. 210 in doubles and No. 390 in singles.

2012-13 Tennis


2012-13 Season Preview Four New Mountaineers to Help Compete in Big 12 Looking to Rebound The 2012-13 West Virginia women’s tennis team looks to bounce back from last year’s disappointing 4-16 season, in which it was forced to compete with five players in its singles lineup and only two doubles teams. Veronica Cardenas led the Mountaineers with 10 wins in singles play, while Emily Mathis and Mary Chupa held the high-water mark with eight doubles wins apiece.

New Faces West Virginia welcomes four new players to its roster this season as well as Jade Allen, who redshirted last season. Hailey Barrett (Lansing, Mich.), Irinka Toidze (Tbilisi, Georgia) and Vivian Tsui (British Columbia, Canada) make up the contingent of incoming freshmen for the Mountaineers, while Audrey Wooland (Sugar Land, Texas), who will have one year of eligibility remaining, is a transfer from Louisiana-Lafayette. Wooland spent the majority of time at the No. 1 and No. 2 singles spots for the Ragin’ Cajuns. In 2011, she compiled an 11-7 record during the spring season and had a 13-8 record during the 2010 spring campaign. Furthermore, Wooland was rated amongst the top 20 players in the Southern Region at Louisiana-Lafayette. Barrett comes to WVU ranked as high as the 73rd-best recruit in the nation along with holding an IMG Academy ranking as high as No. 106. Toidze has held rankings within the top five in the age categories of U-12, U-14, U-16, and U-18 in Georgia along with a top-75 ranking as a U-14 player in Europe and top-150 ranking in Europe as a U-16 player. Tsui was ranked as the 10th-best player in Canada last season, and she held a junior ranking of No. 1 in both the 15-16 and 17-18 age groups.

the No. 3 and No. 4 singles spots. The Chandigarh, India, native benefitted greatly from a midseason move to the No. 4 singles spot, as she had a 7-2 mark in the position. In doubles play, Chahal collected seven victories.

Big 12 Women’s Tennis West Virginia became official members of the Big 12 Conference on July 1, 2012. In doing so, the Mountaineers joined one of the nation’s premier tennis conferences. Last spring, six conference members finished the season in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s top 75. Also, four members (Baylor, Oklahoma State, TCU and Texas) qualified for the NCAA Championship.

Challenging Competition During her tenure with West Virginia, coach Tina Samara has emphasized the importance of putting together a schedule that will not only challenge her team, but also prepare it for success in the conference and national tournaments. The 2012-13 slate, which is comprised of one home tournament during the fall season and 10 home matches during the spring season, includes six matches against teams that qualified for the 2012 NCAA Championship and 10 against teams that finished in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s Top 75. In addition, the Mountaineers will make their

Samara’s Diverse Group West Virginia features student-athletes from three different U.S. states and four foreign countries. Texas is the home state of Audrey Wooland and Emily Mathis, while Hailey Barrett hails from Michigan. Vivian Tsui is from Canada. India is the home country of Ikttesh Chahal. Georgia is the homeland of Irinia Toidze, while Jade Allen is a native of the United Kingdom.

Under a Watchful Eye West Virginia is under the tutelage of third-year coach Tina Samara. The former twotime All-American at Georgia and 1994 NCAA national champion in doubles play, enters the season with a young, talented team that will look to compete in the Big 12 conference.

Singles Outlook Returning players Emily Mathis and Ikttesh Chahal look to remain a constant presence in the West Virginia lineup. Mathis, who has a 31-41 record in singles play, played mainly in the No. 1 and No. 2 spots last season. Chahal will look to build on her late season run that saw her win seven of her last nine singles matches. Chahal found comfort in the No. 4 spot in the lineup after beginning the season at No. 3 Also in the hunt for a spot near the top of the lineup is Audrey Wooland. The Sugar Land, Texas native played predominantly in the No. 1 and No. 2 spots for Louisiana-LaFayette and looks to do the same for the Mountaineers. WVU will fill out the remaining spots in the lineup with freshmen Jade Allen, Hailey Barrett, Irinka Toidze and Vivian Tsui.

Doubles Outlook

Returning Lettermen West Virginia has two lettermen, senior Emily Mathis and sophomore Ikttesh Chahal, returning to the court this season. Last season, Mathis held a 4-6 overall record in the No. 1 singles spot, but a stomach injury sustained in mid-February limited her in the closing months of the season as she finished with a 6-14 mark in singles play and an 8-11 mark in doubles play. During the 2012 spring season, Chahal had a 9-11 record in singles play, while playing in

first trip to the Riviera/ITA All-American Championships in Pacific Palisades, Calif. First-time opponents on this year’s schedule include Baylor, Buffalo, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas and Texas Tech.

Emily Mathis 36 | West Virginia University

Emily Mathis was a part of eight doubles wins last season while Ikttesh Chahal accounted for seven doubles wins in 2012. Coach Tina Samara says that in order to fill out her team’s doubles rotation it will take time during the team’s fall tournaments to determine an exact spring lineup. “You can have two great players on paper, but they are unable to work together in doubles. There is a lot more to doubles than just how good you are individually. It is a different game than singles.”


Q&A with Coach Samara Last year was tough, there is no doubt about that, what made it so tough and how have you and assistant Brian Sullivan made changes to ensure success this year? For starters, we played last year with five girls. Our fifth player was inexperienced match-wise and she got thrown into the fire in the five spot, which is a pretty tough situation to handle. We were giving away a doubles point and a singles point before the match even started. We won a match against George Washington, and they were a team that was better than teams that we lost to throughout the season. I think that says something. With the group that we had, they came into the program without a lot of experience that we currently have here or is coming in now. In that regard, what would a successful season be in your eyes on a team level and on an individual level? This year, we have Hailey (Barrett) coming in, and she is ranked No. 66 in the country. Irinka (Toidze) has been playing European tournaments against the best in Europe. Vivian (Tsui) comes in with a lot of experience from her matches in Canada and matches in national tournaments. Right away, they are coming in with a lot more experience and that is going to change how they handle this next step. We are trying to get kids that number one want to come here to play. I obviously have a soft spot for Audrey (Wooland) because she was my first recruit as a head coach. She is a really gifted player, and I feel bad that she lost a year last year. I am glad we are able to give her this experience in her senior year. She is a girl from Texas, with us being in the Big 12, this will give her the chance to play against some of the teams from her home state. I want her to have the best year she can. She is a quiet leader, but when she competes, everyone will see why she has had the type of success she has had. She has also done a lot for me as a coach, and we will feel that she is owed this opportunity. With Emily Mathis, she is the last remaining girl from the previous coach, and she has done a great job. We understand that it can be tough for a player like that, but she has taken it in stride. It can be tough to understand why we do certain things the way we do, but at the end of the year, we want her to look back and see why we did those things. We want her to have a great experience winwise. With the exception of Emily Mathis, this team is composed entirely of players that you have recruited. Does that make it more comfortable for you and is this where progress begins? We were really lucky at Lousiana-LaFayette, and we realize that more and more each day. The situation we had there was very rare, but we still had some of the same speed bumps in the road. When you have your own kids, they

are much more aware of what your expecatations are right off the bat. We had to make some quick decisions last season, but this is the first group of kids that we have gotten to know really well here at WVU, and we have spent a lot of time getting to understand them. We feel much more confident about their commitment to what we are doing. It can be tough to do well if you are not on the same page as a group. The Big 12 Conference is one of the elite, if not the best, tennis conferences in the country, what do you expect as your team heads into competition this season? I played in the SEC and coached in the Big 12 while I was at Colorado. I know the difference between being successful and struggling isn’t necessarily a big thing. It is not about they are just that much better. They are converting on serves during key points in the match and they are making the needed returns. It is not a huge glaring thing, it is about completing the fundamentals and making sure the commitment is there. We may be competing with just six players this year, and there can be a positive to playing under those circumstances. You are not fighting to play. You want competition obviously, but looking back at my experience as a player, it allowed us to become a better team. We didn’t have to fight for that sixth spot because whether you were the No. 1 player or the No. 6 player, you were still playing. That helped us so much the next year because we developed that tight bond by going through everything together. When you have those types of intangibles, it can help you overcome the physical advantages a team may have over you. During the fall, you have scheduled tournaments that will challenge your team. What do you hope to see during singles and doubles play? To me, every year is a blank. I don’t know how the new girls are going to do, so I am going to base it on how they do. You may have a girl that can handle playing low and can’t handle the team pressure or vice versa. No one has a spot locked down in this lineup. If they are a girl that is continually winning, they will move up in the lineup. As far as doubles, you can have two great players on paper, but they are unable to work together in doubles. There is a lot more to doubles than just how good you are individually. It is a different game than singles. When you are on the road recruiting, what is the most important thing you are looking for in a student-athlete? One thing we have gotten to do more is to actually see these girls play. You can tell a lot about a kid when you see her compete. The main thing we want is someone with that competitive attitude. You can have a great player that doesn’t have the best attitude. We want a lot of character. I don’t mind a girl with a little bit of a temper,

because that shows us that you care. When you are in the heat of competition, that is the moment when the real person comes out. It can show whether she is a person that works hard or not just by watching them compete. Keeping with what you have tried to accomplish in your previous two years, your 2013 spring schedule boasts six opponents that qualified for the NCAA Championship and 10 that were ranked in the final Intercollegiate Tennis Association Top 75. What are your thoughts on the spring schedule? Some people think you should have some matches in there that are easy wins. Whenever I won matches like that, I just felt like I was supposed to win. I don’t think we are at that point where we need to do that. We need to give ourselves as many opportunities to compete against the best in the country. A few wins with this schedule can put you into the tournament. We need to play the best teams that we can so we can see how far or how close we are away from being one of the best. One unique match during the spring portion of the schedule will be in Charleston against Virginia Tech. What will that bring to the schedule? We want to try to get more exposure across the state, and Charleston is a huge tennis community. The Charleston Racquet Club is super supportive of us, and they would like to promote us and who we are. They are going to have a large group of people come out to watch because the high school state tournament is held that weekend. We would like to make our program more visible. We need to make an effort to go throughout the state and show them what our program is all about. What do you think will be the key ingredient to making this program successful? Commitment. We need to be committed to the goals we have. We want players that have a lot of upside and potential. We know that we can develop girls into good players. We will take the girls that have that upside and work with them to develop their game. Those can be the types of kids that are hungry. At Colorado, we beat a William & Mary team that was No. 10 in the country at the time, and none of our kids were rock stars. They just believed that they could win and were committed to the program. Where do you see the future of this program? What is cool about this program is that there is so much room to improve in every way. You can come here and be part of something that is very special because there aren’t any Big 12 programs you can go to and be the first All-American or the first team to make it to the NCAAs. The future is bright for this program.

James P. Clements, Ph.D. President Jim Clements is West Virginia University’s 23rd president. WVU is the flagship university of West Virginia, with an internationally diverse student body of more than 33,000 undergraduate and graduate students across approximately 200 degree programs in the University’s 13 constituent colleges, two divisional colleges, and multiple healthcare sites. Dr. Clements chairs the boards of the West Virginia United Health System, the WVU Hospitals, and the WVU Research Corporation. In total, WVU and its affiliates represent a $2.3 billion enterprise and employ more than 18,000 people. WVU and its affiliates are currently in the midst of more than $600 million of capital improvements. Regionally, he is a board member of the

National Energy Technology Laboratory Regional University Alliance. He chairs the Implementation Committee of the Power of 32, a visioning initiative across 32 counties in Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. In the state, he recently co-chaired the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission’s Diversity Initiative Council, and co-chaired the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission’s College Completion Task Force. In addition, he serves on the board of the West Virginia Business Roundtable. On a national level, he is active with national higher education organizations such as the Association of Public Land-Grant Universities (APLU) and the American Council on Education (ACE). He is currently co-chair of the APLU Energy Forum and is the chair of the ACE Commission on Leadership. Dr. Clements was the only university president selected to join a 15-member Innovation Advisory Board to the U.S. Department of Commerce. He was also nominated and participated in the 81st Joint Civilian Orientation Conference through the U.S. Department of Defense.

Before coming to WVU, Dr. Clements served as provost and vice president for academic affairs at Towson University, the secondlargest public university in Maryland. Prior to becoming provost, he served as Towson’s vice president for economic and community outreach, and as the Robert W.

Oliver Luck Director of Athletics Successful at each of his previous career stops, Oliver Luck continues that streak at West Virginia University. A former Mountaineer quarterback, Luck, appointed the University’s 11th Director of Athletics by President James P. Clements on June 9, 2010, has made significant strides in his first two years to enhance WVU’s role as a major player in the collegiate world. In his first year, Luck hired four head coaches, while maintaining WVU’s superior level of success. In addition to new hires, Luck oversaw the progress of major capital projects, such as the $25 million WVU basketball practice facility for men’s and women’s basketball and the women’s soccer training complex. He also fostered an atmosphere for achievement and triumph in the classroom and on the field. In year two, Luck led WVU into the Big 12 Conference, oversaw the best fundraising year in school history, implemented several safety and crowd enhancements at Mountaineer sporting events, increased overall department revenue, continued a master plan for facility upgrades and watched his football program gain its third BCS bowl victory with a record-setting 70-33 win in the Orange Bowl. Luck’s athletic and professional career has been the epitome of success, first as a recordsetting quarterback for the Mountaineers from 1978-81, then as a professional quarterback for the National Football League’s Houston Oilers, and later as a professional sports executive. Luck’s journey to the big chair at WVU began in his native Cleveland, where in 1977 he was named the Cleveland Touchdown Club Player of the Year at St. Ignatius High. Luck chose WVU over Ivy League schools Harvard and Yale, embarking upon a career that saw him establish school records for touchdown passes and completions during his playing days, while also leading the Mountaineers to a 26-6 upset victory over Florida in the 1981 Peach Bowl. His best season came as a senior in 1981 when he completed 216 of 394 passes for 2,448 yards and 16 touchdowns. He passed for a career-high 360 yards in a 27-24 loss to Syracuse at the Carrier Dome in the final regularseason game of his career. Luck ended his college career with 5,765 yards and 43 touchdown passes, both figures still ranking among the best in school history.

Oliver Luck was a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-American quarterback at WVU. Luck was a two-time team MVP in 1980 and 1981, and also received the Louis D. Meisel Award for the WVU football student-athlete with the highest grade point average. The two-time ESPN The Magazine Academic AllAmerican was the recipient of Today’s Top Five, presented for scholastics by the NCAA and was selected by the National Football Foundation as one of its 10 scholar-athletes to make a keynote speech at its annual banquet in 1982. Selected in the second round of the NFL draft by the Houston Oilers (44th overall pick), Luck spent four years with the Oilers from 1982-86. His most extended action came in 1983 when he started six games and finished the season completing 124-of-217 passes for 1,375 yards and eight touchdowns. After retiring from football, Luck became vice president of business development for the NFL and later was appointed general manager of the Frankfurt Galaxy of the newly created World League of American Football. He spent the ’95 season as general manager of the Rhein Fire before being named President and CEO of NFL Europe in 1996. Luck totaled more than 10 years with the NFL, before becoming chief executive officer of the Harris County-Houston Sports Authority in 2001. In that role, Luck oversaw the development and management of a $1 billion professional sports and entertainment complex for the city of Houston that included Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros, Reliant Stadium, home of the Houston Texans, the Toyota Center, home of the Houston Rockets, Comets and Aeros and the Livestock Show and Rodeo.In 2005, Luck was appointed as the first president of Major League Soccer’s Houston Dynamos,

2012-13 Tennis

helping that organization to a pair of MLS Cup titles in his first two years at the helm. Luck secured the funding for an $80 million soccer complex to house the Dynamos when the call came to return to his alma mater. BBVA Compass Stadium was built and opened in 2012 adding to Luck’s legacy with the professional soccer team, and the overall Houston sports facility complexes. He returned in May, 2012 for the opening ceremony of the soccer stadium that he fought so hard for. Prior to his current position at WVU, Luck was appointed by then Gov. Joe Manchin in 2008 to a four-year term on the West Virginia University Board of Governors, a spot he relinquished to become director of athletics. The Rhodes Scholar finalist graduated Phi Betta Kappa from WVU in 1982. He also earned a law degree from Texas, graduating cum laude in 1987. In 1997, Luck was inducted into the West Virginia University Sports Hall of Fame, and in 2008, he was inducted into the CoSIDA Academic All-America Hall of Fame. ”It’s an incredible honor for me to be the athletic director at my alma mater,” said Luck. ”I care deeply about this school, and WVU is truly one of the outstanding land-grant universities in the country. I am so pleased to be a part of the leadership team assembled under President Clements at a dynamic and strategic time in its history.” He is married to the former Kathy Wilson. They have two sons and two daughters: Andrew, a former All-American quarterback and two-time Heisman Trophy finalist at Stanford and No. 1 overall pick of the 2012 NFL draft by the Indianapolis Colts; Mary Ellen, a junior volleyball player at Stanford; Emily, a freshman at Stanford and Addison, who attends Morgantown High.
