services and programs to help studentathletes maximize their academic potential. Department staff members work with coaches, on campus student service providers and faculty to help student-athletes meet the unique demands of the classroom, the sporting arena and the personal-social challenges they face as developing adults.

While many of the headlines center on the ¡

Mountaineers’ accomplishments on the playing field, West Virginia athletes have also made some noteworthy strides in the classroom. Some of those strides include a string of 10 consecutive years where the department has had at least one first team Academic All-American.

The Mountaineers are provided

with an academic adviser who devotes their time to ensuring student-athletes are provided with any assistance necessary to ensure academic success.

To help its student athletes achieve ¡

academic success, one of the nation’s finest facilities resides in the WVU Coliseum – The Athletic Academic Performance Center. The 8,000-square foot facility provides individual and group study areas, a plethora of computer stations and the latest in fingerprint technology used when signing in.

A total of 340 student-athletes were ¡

recognized for their achievement in the classroom last spring, at the annual WVU Student-Athlete Academic Excellence Banquet, honoring recipients of the Garrett Ford Academic Honor Roll. Implemented in 1989, the Garrett Ford Academic Honor Roll was created to recognize students who have achieved a grade point average of 3.0 or better. Since the program began in 1989, nearly 4,000 student-athletes have earned a place on the honor roll. Ford retired in 2011 after 44 years of service with the WVU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics.

Head Coach

Jill Kramer Head Coach Fourth Season (30-56)

Jill Kramer was named West Virginia University’s third volleyball coach on Monday, Aug. 9, 2010, a day before the start of fall training camp. At West Virginia Kramer led WVU into the Big 12 Conference in 2012, where the Big 12 was coming off a 2011 season rated as the nation’s best conference according to RPI. WVU volleyball held the first Big 12 sporting event on the Morgantown campus, where a record-breaking 3,112 fans attended the match against then-No. 2 and eventual 2012 National Champion Texas. Before facing one of the toughest conference schedules in program history, where the team played a record eight matches against ranked opponents, Kramer coached a pair of freshmen to the school’s first Big 12 honors. Hannah Sackett was named Rookie and Offensive Player of the Week on Aug. 27. Sackett became the fourth student-athlete since the rookie award was established in 2008 to earn both honors in the same week. Nikki Attea also garnered Rookie of the Week honors on Sept. 17. In her first two seasons at WVU, Kramer hit the ground running as the Mountaineers began

their 2010 season with its best start since 1987, posting a 4-0 record at the WVU Classic with senior captain Lauren Evans named the tournament’s most valuable player and high point scorer. In 2010, the Mountaineers defeated Marshall for the first time since 2001 with a dominating 3-0 win in the WVU Coliseum. Under Kramer’s guidance, WVU went on to defeat USF, 3-1, for the first time since 2005. The Mountaineers also shut down Pitt, 3-2, in 2010 and 2011 for the second and third wins in program history over the Panthers and the first wins in more than 40 years. In her inaugural year, the Mountaineers closed out the season just one match shy of a Big East Tournament appearance, finishing 15-15. Kramer’s influence on defensive play was seen when WVU ranked as high as No. 1 in the Big East and nationally for digs per set in 2010 and 2011. In 2011, Kramer coached first-time libero Serinna Russo to a final ranking of No. 7 in the nation and No. 2 in the Big East ranking in digs per set. Academic Success Since starting at WVU in 2010, Kramer has put a great emphasis on the improvement of academics for the Mountaineers. The volleyball team has slowly risen to Kramer’s expectations and was recently honored with the AVCA Team Academic Award in July 2013 – the first in program history. The award honors collegiate

teams that display excellence in the classroom during the school year by maintaining at least a 3.30 cumulative team GPA on a 4.0 scale. Under Kramer’s guidance, Liz Gulick was named to the 2012 Capital One Academic AllDistrict 2 Team and was the first WVU volleyball player to be named to the 2012 Academic All-Big 12 Volleyball First Team with a 4.0 GPA. Four players were also named to the inaugural Big 12 Academic All-Rookie Team. In 2011-12, former Mountaineers Abby Monson and Andrea Miller were honored as WVU Foundation Outstanding Seniors, which honors less than one percent of the graduating seniors. Before West Virginia Kramer came to West Virginia after spending two seasons as an assistant at Virginia, where she made an immediate impact on the Cavaliers’ volleyball program. In her first season, where she coordinated all recruiting efforts, Kramer helped head coach Lee Maes bring the program its first-ever nationally ranked recruiting class, posting a No. 15 ranking by PrepVolleyball.com. She followed that up in her second year with a class that was tabbed No. 9 by PrepVolleyball.com. Prior to her stint at Virginia, Kramer spent two seasons (2006-07) as an assistant at Alabama, helping the Crimson Tide reach the NCAA tournament in consecutive years. At Alabama, she was involved in all aspects of the


Head Coach program, including on-court training, opponent scouting and recruiting, while tutoring two time All-American Crystal Hudson. In her second season with the Crimson Tide, Kramer served as the recruiting coordinator, bringing in the first ranked recruiting class in Tide volleyball history, a No. 27 ranking by PrepVolleyball.com. Kramer began her collegiate coaching career as an assistant at Texas San Antonio from 2003-05. UTSA advanced to the Southland Conference tournament in each of her three seasons, including a championship berth in 2005. While coaching at UTSA, Kramer also was the co-director for the Alamo Volleyball Club, coaching the 17-and-under team. She oversaw all player and coach development while Alamo grew to 26 teams and over 250 athletes. During her time there, 17 teams qualified for the Junior Olympics, while six of those teams earned medals and 12 players earned All-America awards. Her coaching career began in 1998 as an assistant for the 16-and-under national team of the Metroplex Volleyball Club, currently Texas Advantage, in Fort Worth, Texas. USA Volleyball Kramer has also been involved with USA Volleyball for the past eight years. Most recently, Kramer spent the summer of 2011 as an assistant coach for the USA Women’s Junior National Team, which competed in the FIVB Women’s Junior National World Championships in Lima, Peru. The team posted a 4-4 record and came in fourth in the competition. Kramer’s teams have posted a 31-5 record during her time with USA Volleyball. In 2006, as an assistant with the USA Junior A-2 training camp and Red team, the squad won Gold at the High Performance Championships. In 2007 as an assistant, the USA Junior A-2 team won the Gold medal at the Global Challenge in Pula, Croatia. As a co-coach in 2009, Kramer led the USA Youth A-2 team to a Gold medal at the High Performance Championships. In the summer of 2010, as an assistant on the USA Senior A-2 Blue team, Kramer helped her team to a Gold medal at the USA Open National Championships. From 2007-12, she coached at the USA Women’s National team tryouts in Colorado Springs, Colo. Personal Kramer, formerly Jill Pape, was a four-year letterwinner and team captain at Texas Christian from 1996-99.

Q&A

More than 3,100 fans attended WVU vs. No. 2 Texas on Aug. 29 Q&A With Jill Kramer A sit down with WVU’s fourth-year coach How have things progressed through your first three years at WVU and what changes have you made along the way? Since I arrived in 2010, a lot of things have changed. When I arrived here we were competing in the Big East and we had a plan of action, at that point, of where we wanted to take the program. Then signing week (November) of 2011 we joined the Big 12, which posed another challenge and a great opportunity at the same time. With that, we have the same goal of building a championship program. I believe that joining the Big 12 will only accelerate the level of volleyball that our program will play. We stayed patient with our team last fall, and we could start to see some significant development in the spring. You could really see our growth as a group. We still have a lot to learn, but continue to improve steadily. The biggest change has been how I’ve evolved to adjust to my players and team. Because it’s not about me and how I want to coach, it’s about providing them with what they need in order to be successful. Each player learns differently and each team’s personality and how they function changes a bit from year to year. Our staff has learned to make small adjustments from year to year without compromising our philosophy. The one thing that I have never compromised since my arrival to WVU is the importance of the concept of TEAM. I am a true believer that you are a teammate in all aspects of life, on and off the court. Players have to be com-

mitted to that concept if they want to play here, and I believe that the kids that want to be a part of a culture like that are naturally drawn to this program. What excites you about working with your new assistant coach Kevin Carroll and what does he bring to the WVU volleyball program? Relatively speaking, I think I’m quite young in the volleyball coaching world, and Kevin is, too. I think experience is important, but your attitude toward what you do and your drive to be the best and your energy and enthusiasm toward your passion are equally as important. And he is all of that. He has always succeeded at a very high level and he understands what that takes. It’s a little bit different on the men’s side, but it’s still volleyball. A national championship is a national championship. He gameplans very well. He can break down an opponent and help us put together a great gameplan to compete against other teams. I think he is eager to learn about how some things are done on the women’s side for instance recruiting is very different than on the men’s side, and I think he is going to really be great at it. He has a great personality and can easily connect with others which is a big part of recruiting. I am an avid coffee enthusiast, and funny enough, in 12 years of coaching, I’ve never coached with anyone who has shared my love of a good cup of coffee - Kevin does. I’m pretty excited about talking volleyball every day over a good cup of coffee. It’s the little things. This season marks the 40th anniversary for West Virginia volleyball. What are your impressions of its history and how has it changed since you’ve arrived? In the late 80s, early 90s West Virginia

really saw some success. There are people who played on those teams who are still active in the volleyball world today. They’re very good coaches, and they care deeply about the sport. I have had the great fortune of getting to talk to coach Hammersmith quite often. What I’ve learned from our conversations is that the sport back in the early 70’s was much different than it is now is I feel like it’s taken us about three years to get the culture and environment we want on the team and in the gym. We’re not there yet in the win-loss column, but I feel like we have the right foundation in place to move forward at a much faster pace than we have been, and we will get where we want to be. We have a solid group of returners that have Big 12 experience under their belt. We know what to expect now. Last year was a learning process, and we’re going to continue to learn, but I feel like we’re on the right path of where we want to go. What was the experience like your first year competing in the Big 12 Conference and what did you learn? In the Big 12, you have to show up to play every night. You have to be very, very sharp every point of every set. You have to play the game very well. We developed a formula of how we want to build our team that I’m really happy with, it’s a combination of skilled players and athletes. That’s the direction we’re heading. There are teams in the Big 12 that win with either, or both. We learned that it’s so important for us to stay focused on what a great opportunity it is to play in the Big 12. And to get to play that high level of competition every night. Some of the programs have the best attendances in the country. The crowds know volleyball, and I think that stuff is really cool and it’s really great to be a part of those environments and I think we’re well on our way to building that


Q&A at West Virginia. One of the biggest things I noticed is that in the Big 12 we compete against ‘Volleyball Programs’, not ‘Volleyball Teams.’ In my mind, those are very different things. They function at a very high level with many people involved in the management of the organization. What was it like playing in front of 3,100+ at the WVU Coliseum against the eventual national champion Texas Longhorns last year? It was great. There was such great energy in the Coliseum. The entire band attending was probably the coolest thing I’ve ever seen at a volleyball match - you couldn’t even hear the person next to you talking. I’ve been in environments before where we might have played a game immediately after a basketball game and some of the crowd stuck around, but they weren’t necessarily involved in the volleyball match. Against Texas, all the fans were fully engaged with what was going on and fought with us the whole way. It was a great way to welcome Texas into town, and it was a great way to welcome our first Big 12 opponent.

when I played, I played in the WAC where Rice was the Eastern-most institution and Hawaii was the Western-most institution, with 14 other schools in between. We were on the road all the time. So I played in that environment and I loved it. I was a gym rat. I feel like our team has really embraced it. We go on a few long road trips each season with shorter ones mixed in. We have started to live stream some classes at WVU, and there are a lot of online options, as well. We have an academic advisor, Jill Weston, who travels with us and we can proctor exams on the road. The girls meet with tutors on a regular basis. We have study hall built in on the road. We also have opportunities to do community service in different areas of the country, while we are on the road, which gives us an opportunity to be great ambassadors for WVU. It gives us an opportunity to practice in a lot of different environments. The bottom line is, we’ve learned to embrace it and this is the way of college athletics now. You’re either going to get left behind or you’re going to embrace it. We’re looking forward to spending time on the road again this year.

What is the experience like traveling in the Big 12 and how did your players juggle their time? I get a lot of questions about travel and what we think about it. From my background,

How has your connection with the Morgantown community changed since your arrival? When I arrived in Morgantown, the community involvement in the sport needed a drastic

improvement and so did our team’s involvement with the community. We have made sure that our team knows it’s a two-way street. We have a mentor program with some leaders in the community who meet with our players on a regular basis and let our girls know that they’re supported. The number of kids in the greater Morgantown area who are playing volleyball is growing at a rapid pace. Kids love watching volleyball because it’s a fast-paced game and our players just look larger than life to little kids. Our involvement in the community has taken a huge step forward in the past few years. But like everything else, we still have a lot of room for growth.

Season Preview

2012 Team

Jill Kramer

2013 Season Preview West Virginia enters second season in Big 12 Season Preview Head coach Jill Kramer enters her fourth season as head coach of the West Virginia volleyball team. Kramer and the Mountaineers will look to build on their first season of competition in the Big 12 Conference, where they faced eight ranked opponents. West Virginia will play 17 matches inside the WVU Coliseum and 16 matches away from home. Experience Yields Potential After losing just one senior to graduation a year ago, West Virginia will return all six of its starters, including its libero in sophomore Anna Panagiotakopoulos. The Mountaineers return their top players in number of kills, digs, blocks and assists and look to improve entering their second season in the Big 12. “Our team has worked very hard in the offseason to prepare for the 2013 season. The mental and physical effort everyone has put in since December has been remarkable. The team that is in place is built of players who have the same drive - their motors don’t stop, so to speak,” Kramer says. “They know the type of effort it takes day in and day out to be successful in the Big 12 and are all determined to be

Caleah Wells a part of bringing West Virginia volleyball to national prominence.” Revived Leadership The Mountaineers return four upperclassmen - seniors Arielle Allen, Liz Gulick and Elzbieta Klein, and junior Evyn McCoy. All four upperclassmen played significant roles in the 2012 campaign and will be called upon this year to put their experience to good use. “Our four upperclassmen will be our anchors of support this year for our team. They are all very special people and understand very well how I like things to operate,” Kramer says. “We have a solid foundation of trust with our entire team, and it is largely in part because these four are great leaders. I am very confident that they can help our newcomers acclimate to our team quickly and show them the West Virginia volleyball way.” Special Sophomores Five freshmen on the 2012 roster played significant minutes during their first season and will be returning for the 2013 campaign. Sophomores Caleah Wells, Brittany Sample, Nikki Attea and Hannah Sackett played in every set and every match last season, while sophomore Anna Panagiotakopoulos appeared in every set and match for the Mountaineers before sitting out six matches due to sickness. The five are looking to take the next step forward as a unit and continue to be leaders on a very young West Virginia team.

“Our ‘Fab 5’ as we refer to them is the first solid class we really had the opportunity to put together since my arrival to WVU,” Kramer says. “They have a significant role in building the culture of our program, which is a big factor in why each of them chose to attend WVU. They have a rare and special opportunity to see court time for four years and make a historic impact on WVU volleyball.” Home Court Advantage West Virginia posted its largest home crowd in program history during the 2012 season. The Mountaineers hosted the first-ever Big 12 sporting event on campus against then-No. 2 and eventual national champion Texas. A recordbreaking crowd of 3,112 took in the action inside the WVU Coliseum. “With support at every level, from our administration, the student body and the greater Morgantown community, we have made significant strides in the energy and enthusiasm of our home environment, which leads to more crowd interaction and an event everyone wants to be a part of,” Kramer says. ”Our players are all very personable and love meeting new people and giving back to the community. Because of their radiant personalities, people want to come watch them play and add to their success. “Additionally, The Pride of West Virginia has been a great addition to building a home-court advantage. They have learned about the sport of volleyball, and really get into the matches and get the crowd going. WVU volleyball


Season Preview matches have become one of the most familyfriendly and exciting environments to be a part of in Morgantown.” Schedule West Virginia faced one of the toughest conference schedules in the country in 2012 and will again this season. Every one of the Mountaineers’ 2013 Big 12 opponents finished in the top 100 in the final RPI rankings for the 2012 season, including five finishing in the top 27. Kramer’s team faced eight ranked opponents last season – the most WVU has faced in a single season in program history. “We love playing in the Big 12 because we know what we are getting every match - a very high level of volleyball,” Kramer says. “We believe you have to play the best in order to become the best. The environments we play in in the Big 12 also are some of the best in the country - truly college volleyball at its best!” 40th Anniversary This season will be West Virginia’s 40th year in competition since its inaugural season in 1974. The Mountaineers have compiled more than 600 all-time wins and are currently entering their fourth season under Kramer. “This is a special year for WVU Volleyball as we celebrate 40 years of Mountaineer volleyball,” Kramer says. “Even though we are celebrating 40 years, we are still working diligently to achieve many program firsts - our first All-American, first nationally televised match, and first trip to the NCAA tournament.” Kidd Hired As Recruiting Coordinator Kidd arrived in Morgantown in June of 2012. The fall season came quickly and Kidd adapted, having played in the Big 12 herself. In the spring of 2013, Kidd was named the staff’s recruiting coordinator and has been stellar in that role. “Sara is outstanding at her job - our team loves and respects her. She does a great job organizing all of our recruiting efforts, and she is exceptional in the gym,” Kramer says. “Sara has grit, which is one of the most desired characteristics of someone in the collegiate coaching field. She is diligent about putting in the time and effort to be successful at this level.” Bench’s New Look Kramer announced the addition of assistant coach Kevin Carroll in June 2013. Carroll comes to the Mountaineers from UC-Irvine, where he won three National Championships - two as a player and one as a coach. The Anteaters posted a .718 win percentage during Carroll’s tenure as both a player and a coach. The Los Alamitos, Calif., native is excited to make his mark on the Mountaineer program. “Kevin brings a new dimension to our program coming from the men’s program at

UC-Irvine,” Kramer says. “He is a great teacher of the game and has played at a very high level with UC-Irvine and USA Volleyball. I believe that he will have a very big impact on WVU volleyball.” The Newcomers The Mountaineers will welcome five newcomers to the squad in 2013 - four true freshmen and one transfer from Washington State. Kramer continues to expand geographically, signing Jordan Anderson and Jordan Lee from the state of Texas, Haley Roe from California, Hannah Shreve from Charleston, W.Va., and Anna Stecowska from Greece. West Virginia was able to build depth at certain positions, while adding two outside hitters, a defensive specialist, a middle blocker and a setter. All the newcomers will look to add energy and contribute to an already youthful team in Morgantown. “The five new players we added to our roster this fall all bring very different contributions to the team,” Kramer says. “The addition of Anna gives us four seniors and another skilled pin-hitter. Anna has a lot of charisma - really fills the room when she walks in. She is a great addition to our group. “All four of the freshmen play different positions and will have the opportunity to challenge for playing time immediately. Jordan Anderson has great ‘ball feel’ and defensive skills. She’s also a very skilled attacker with a very live arm. She has played a high level of club volleyball, winning a national championship this year at the USA Junior Olympic Championships. Jordan Lee is a solid defensive player, very quick and reads the game well. She has a great attitude and is a great teammate. Haley Roe trained this past year with Rob Browning (St. Mary’s University) at Norco and is developing into a great setter. She has a nice touch on the ball, a consistent tempo and is a natural competitor. Hannah Shreve may very well be the most decorated West Virginian to ever enter the volleyball program here at WVU. She won a West Virginia high school state championship and was named West Virginia’s Gatorade Player of the Year. Hannah is a very gifted athlete and very coachable. She will undoubtedly be an impact player in the Big 12.” National Team Experience Sophomore libero/defensive specialist Anna Panagiotakopoulos played for the USA Junior National Training Team in the ninth annual European Global Challenge in Pula, Croatia, July 14-19. Panagiotakopoulos recorded the fourthmost digs by a freshman in a single season in program history last year despite missing six matches. Kramer, Panagiotakopoulos and her teammates were honored to have a Mountaineer to represent the program internationally. “Anna and I met when I was coaching her on the USA Youth Training Team in 2010 around

| West Virginia University

the time I accepted the position at WVU. I wanted her to be a part of building this program because she is a go-getter, is very personable, and she has grit,” Kramer says. “She’s an outstanding player, but would not be where she is without her never-ending work ethic and never-say-die attitude. We are proud of her for representing our program so well. When I recruited her, I promised her I’d give her every opportunity to reach her dreams and continue with USA Volleyball.” Kramer’s Philosophy “We see opportunity in everything. I believe that we determine our own destiny based on how proactive we are in the choices we make. I believe there is opportunity to be realized in every moment.” Developing A Culture Since taking over as head coach at West Virginia, Kramer has progressively molded the culture of Mountaineer volleyball. Kramer believes a team’s destiny is controlled by the choices it makes and that there is opportunity to be realized in every moment. She also has been animate in creating trust and respect among the team. “I expect a high-level of trust and respect within our team because I believe for any team to function at its highest level, it must trust and respect everyone within the program,” Kramer says. “To ensure that this happens we communicate openly and honestly as a group to build a culture of trust. Developing trust off the court leads to developing trust on the court, which is important to our performance. “We also have developed a sense of pride as a team in the classroom, community and court. All of our players are strongly engaged in all three of these arenas, which leads to a very fulfilling experience for them as collegiate student-athletes.” Renewing rivalries After a year off the schedule, West Virginia’s in-state rival Marshall has returned to the schedule for the 2013 season. Kramer has a 3-1 combined record all-time against the Mountaineers’ closest rivals - Pitt and Marshall - and WVU holds a 28-17 all-time mark against the Thundering Herd, including a 15-5 record at home. “I was really happy that we could schedule Marshall again this season. I love rivalry games, and there’s nothing more a West Virginia volleyball team loves to do than to fight for the Gold Ball,” Kramer says. “These matches are great for everyone - fans of both teams, the players, and the sport in general, so we will continue to keep them going as long as we can.”

2013 Schedule 2013 Opponent Information

Eastern Illinois: Neutral | Aug. 31 | 10:00 a.m.

The 2013 schedule is filled with quality opponents. The Mountain-

eers will play 17 matches against teams who finished in the top 100 of the final RPI rankings for the 2012 season, including two matches against the defending national champion Texas Longhorns. Also, 12 of WVU’s 17 noncoference opponents will return at least five starters from 2012. “We love playing in the Big 12 because we know what we are getting every match - a very high-level of volleyball,” Kramer says. “We believe you have to play the best in order to become the best. The environments we play in while in the Big 12 are also some of the best in the country truly college volleyball at its best!”

With no conference tournament and their sights set on the

NCAA Tournament, the second half of Big 12 play could determine the Mountaineers’ postseason chances.

2012 Review

Arielle Allen

2012 Mountaineers

Caleah Wells

2012 Season Review WVU plays first season in Big 12 Conference Big 12 Welcome Coach Jill Kramer and the Mountaineers embarked on a new era in WVU volleyball program history in 2012 when the team forged ahead into one of the most premier volleyball conferences in the country – the Big 12 Conference. The Mountaineers joined Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas and Texas Tech as league members on July 1, 2012. The team had to adjust to a new conference schedule where it faced every school home and away for the first time in program history. Facing the National Champion The volleyball team was honored to host the first Big 12 opponent on its Morgantown campus when WVU welcomed then-No. 2 Texas to the WVU Coliseum on Aug. 29. A recordbreaking 3,112 fans were in attendance to see the Mountaineers take on the eventual national champion, and broke the previous attendance record of 1,200 that was set in 2009 against DePaul. Arielle Allen led the team with 10 kills and a .318 hitting percentage, while also chipping in seven digs against the Longhorns.

Playing the Best For the first time in program history, WVU playing eight matches against ranked opponents. Then-No. 2 Texas was the highest-ranked opponent the Mountaineers would face all season and it was only the third time in program history the team competed against the No. 2 team in the nation. On Oct. 3, WVU took on then-No. 24 Kansas at the WVU Coliseum and the Mountaineers took a set from a ranked opponent for the first time in two years. Freshman outside hitter Nikki Attea led the Mountaineers with 14 kills and three blocks, while Anna Panagiotakopoulos and Liz Gulick each recorded 14 digs in the match against the Jayhawks. Lone Senior Karly Rasmussen was the lone senior on a young WVU team that had eight newcomers and was tabbed a captain along with Liz Gulick. Rasmussen appeared in 68 sets for the Mountaineers and played a key role as a serving specialist. Rasmussen recorded at least one service ace in eight matches and had careerhigh four against Saint Peter’s. Rasmussen finished her career with appearances in 31 matches and 75 sets for WVU. The San Marcos, Calif., native dished out 28 assists, while also serving up 15 aces and recording 54 digs. Getting Experience Early West Virginia returned only one starter from the 2011 season and was the only Big 12 school with newcomers taking up six of the

| West Virginia University

seven starting positions in every match. Freshmen Brittany Sample and Caleah Wells started every set and match in their first season as Mountaineers. Sample guided the offense with 960 assists and 8.89 assists per set, while also posting a team-leading 12 double-doubles. Wells finished third on the team with 167 kills and also was a force at the net with 71 total blocks. Five of the top six offensive contributors were newcomers, with freshman Hannah Sackett leading the offensive effort from the first match. Sackett finished the season with 267 kills, while also posting 11 double-digit kill matches. Nikki Attea saw action in every set for the Mountaineers and followed closely behind Sackett with 246 kills. Serving Up Aces WVU found itself consistently at the top of the Big 12 Conference in service aces per set the entire season. The Mountaineers finished No. 2 in the Big 12 and No. 57 in the nation with 1.36 service aces per set. WVU was one of three schools that had at least two players ranked in the top 10 in service aces per set in the Big 12. Freshman outside hitter Hannah Sackett led the team at No. 7 with 0.28 service aces per set, while sophomore middle blocker Evyn McCoy followed closely behind at No. 8 with 0.29 service aces per set. The Mountaineers finished the season with nine players who recorded double-digit service aces.


2012 Review Big 12 Honors Hannah Sackett became the first WVU student-athlete to receive a Big 12 weekly award when she was named the Big 12 Offensive Player and Rookie of the Week on Aug. 27. Sackett became only the fourth student-athlete since the rookie award was established in 2008 to earn both honors in the same week. The Somers, Mont., native claimed the award after being named MVP of the Mountaineer Invitational. Sackett posted 54 kills, 4.91 kills per set, a .371 hitting percentage, six service aces and 23 digs over three matches in the opening weekend of play. Freshman outside hitter Nikki Attea also earned a weekly award when she was named Big 12 Rookie of the Week on Sept. 17. Attea garnered the award after three straight five-set matches. Success in the Classroom Coach Jill Kramer’s emphasis on academics reached new levels in 2012 when junior defensive specialist Liz Gulick was named to the 2012 Capital One Academic All-District II Team as announced by CoSIDA. Gulick became the first volleyball student-athlete to receive the award since Krista Smith in 2000 and 2001. Gulick also became the first volleyball player to earn a spot on the Academic All-Big 12 Volleyball First Team. Gulick was one of four studentathletes to earn a perfect 4.0 GPA. Senior Karly Rasmussen also was honored by being named to the Academic All-Big 12 Second Team. The team also found academic success as a whole when it garnered the AVCA Team Academic Award in July 2013 – the first in program history. The award honors collegiate teams that display excellence in the classroom during the school year by maintaining at least a 3.30 cumulative team GPA on a 4.0 scale.

In total, WVU and its affiliates represent a $2.5 billion enterprise and employ more than 20,000 people. Over the past four years, WVU has set significant records in private fundraising, enrollment, and research funding. Through WVU projects, as well public private partnerships, nearly a billion dollars of capital improvements are underway on campus, in WVU’s health care system, and in the community. Regionally, Dr. Clements is a board member of the National Energy Technology Labora-

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 three 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. In year three, Luck oversaw the reseating of the WVU Coliseum to further increase WVU’s fundraising efforts. He added an 18th varsity sport - the return of men’s golf – teeing it up in 2015 for the first time since 1982, and he continues his tireless work on facility upgrades to keep the Mountaineers competitive in the Big 12. 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 regular-season 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. 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 All-American 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 scholarathletes 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 CountyHouston 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, 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 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 Beta 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 2000, 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 senior volleyball player at Stanford; Emily, a sophomore at Stanford and Addison, who attends Morgantown High.

Oliver Luck was a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-American quarterback at WVU. 87
