BIG 12 CONFERENCE

The Big 12 Conference enters its 19th season of existence and its third under the direction of Commissioner Bob Bowlsby.

The Big 12 is a strong conference that, like WVU, values quality academic and athletic programs and has a great tradition of success.

The Big 12 is comprised of 10 institutions. Member universities include – Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas, Texas Tech and West Virginia. Oklahoma State, however, does not field a women’s volleyball program.

In 2013, the league had eight of its nine volleyball programs finish in the top 100 in the final RPI rankings, including six finishing in the top 75.

Since the 1996-97 season – the Big 12’s first season of competition – the league has recorded 53 NCAA team titles and 552 individual national championships.

The Big 12’s very own Texas Longhorns volleyball team hoisted its third National Championship trophy in 2012, following a 29-4 season. The conference office is headquartered in Irving, Texas.

WVU FACILITIES

Stunning in its spacious yet simplistic structure and versatile in its myriad uses, the WVU Coliseum is one of the nation’s supreme showcases for college basketball, gymnastics, volleyball and wrestling.

part of the fan experience at the Coliseum. Panasonic, together with WVU, used the new video board systems as a showcase to feature the latest state-of-the-art video and audio technology.

Whether it is during the day, when the sun shines down on the massive structure, or at night, when its golden lights make it an evening showcase, the Coliseum stands as one of the most striking facilities on the WVU campus.

A new state-of-the-art directional sound system and lighting system was also installed in the Coliseum.

Several upgrades have taken place recently in order to be competitive in the Big 12 Conference. Items such as expansion of the strength and conditioning center, equipment room and training room, and refurbishment of the Coliseum roof were completed. In 2008, new, state-of-the-art score/video boards, complete with high resolution video and expanded messaging capabilities, became

VOLLEYBALL

The 14,000-seat domed arena has been the home of Mountaineer athletics for the past quarter of a century, but its many uses include commencement, concerts, conferences, floor shows and a host of educational and athletic events. The Coliseum ranks second only to the Mountainlair (WVU’s student union building) in everyday activity.


In the spring of 2015, a small army of construction workers will took over the WVU Coliseum to begin work on $15 million worth of improvements as part of Phase I of the planned renovations to one of the state’s most iconic structures. The Coliseum has served Mountaineer basketball and volleyball well through the years, and as second-year director of athletics Shane Lyons points out, it has become one of the signature buildings - not only on West Virginia University’s campus - but throughout the entire state as well. And while the outside of the arena remains awe inspiring, the inside, specifically the concourse, is in dire need of updating. Therefore, the time has come to modernize a facility that is now approaching its sixth decade of usage.

“Obviously, there are infrastructural challenges you run into as far as electrical and plumbing that you have to spend money on to make the upgrades needed that the fans will never see just because it’s taking place under ground,” said Lyons. “When you are going from 62 restroom fixtures to 155, you have to make sure the plumbing within the facility can handle those additional fixtures.” This is not to imply that what is planned will not wow fans, because the changes about to take place on the main concourse of the arena are going to dramatically improve the fan experience across the board for every event the Coliseum supports.

What that is about to entail is a considerable amount of work.

Phase I will entail more than doubling of restrooms, the near doubling of points of sale for concessions, the widening of the concourse for ingress and egress, exterior access to the Mountaineer Ticket Office and Team Store, new concession options such as a “Mountaineer Café”, “Country Roads Pit Stop”, “Almost Heaven Bistro and Wild & Wonderful Canteen,” improved graphics, and, eventually, four times more ADA seating than is currently offered during the second phase of Coliseum renovations tentatively slated for 2017.

Refurbishing the massive concrete structure is a tricky deal because the infrastructure that supports the utilities for the Coliseum is nearly five decades old and was done to satisfy standards of a different time period.

When Phase I is completed before the start of next basketball season, Mountaineer fans will be able to enjoy a modern experience more in line with what other venues around the country are currently providing.

“You can’t do everything you want to do like you would if it was a new building and you were starting from scratch,” Lyons explained. “Consequently, you take what you have to work with around that.”

Modernizing the Coliseum’s infrastructure is something the common fan won’t see, but it will make up a sizable amount of what is going to happen over the next six months or so.

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING The primary goal of the WVU strength and conditioning program is to provide each student-athlete with the best hands-on strength and conditioning program, with the best strength coaches and training facilities in the country. Our training philosophy is founded on two major principles: health and safety of the student-athlete, and performance enhancement. The strength & conditioning coaches facilitate a training environment that enables each athlete to reach her full athletic potential. Our strength and conditioning program develops character, mental toughness, confidence, leadership, accountability, and relentless work ethic. The strength and conditioning coaches collaborate with our sport coaches and athletic training staff to prepare every athlete for optimum performance in competition and to have the ability to withstand the rigorous training demands throughout the season.

VOLLEYBALL

The entire year is carefully planned to prepare for optimal performance during the season and peaking at post-season championships. Mountaineer volleyball players train for explosive power, jump endurance, anaerobic capacity, maximum strength, speed and agility. Athletes are also educated in proper recovery strategies, including proper nutrition, hydration, rest and regeneration methods. We also have a registered dietician on staff to provide nutritional guidance and education to help each athlete perform at her peak fitness level and athletic potential.

ATHLETIC TRAINING

The West Virginia athletic training program looks to get its studentathletes back on the field in a timely manner while providing quality health care for its student-athletes and coaches.

Multiple athletic training rooms are available for student-athletes furnished with the latest in technology and equipment.

The scope of the athletic training services encompass various domains including injury recognition, treatment, rehabilitation, prevention, education, and counseling that will enable the athlete to maintain an optimal quality of life beyond the span of athletic competition.

The athletic training staff will work in conjunction with the team physicians and athletic administration to assure the student-athletes receive quality care throughout their careers at WVU.

GAMEDAY MORGANTOWN IN

The atmosphere for a volleyball match in Morgantown is intense. The WVU Pep Band, the Mountaineer Maniac student section and the community all come out to cheer on their Mountaineers. West Virginia plays its home matches inside the 14,000seat WVU Coliseum. Fans throughout the state and the Mountaineer Maniacs come out to cheer on the Old Gold and Blue. The Pride of West Virginia, The Mountaineer Marching Band, is located in seating near the floor during select home games. A record-crowd of 3,112 fans watched the Mountaineers face eventual national champion Texas Longhorns inside the WVU Coliseum on Aug. 29, 2012. Recent community involvement projects led to larger fan base in and around the Morgantown area.

STUDENT-ATHLETE

DEVELOPMENT

West Virginia University offers a variety of services and programs to help student-athletes 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 court, WVU athletes have also made some noteworthy strides in the classroom. 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. More than 350 student-athletes were recognized for their achievement in the classroom last spring, at the 2016 Blue & Golden Globes Awards dinner, presented by the WVU Student- Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), 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.

Hannah Shreve, Gianna Gotterba and Morgan Montgomery were honored as members of the 2015 Big 12 Volleyball AllAcademic Teams, while Shreve was named a recipient of the Big 12’s prestigious Dr. Gerald Lage award. After completing her undergraduate degree in just three years, Shreve was named a WVU Foundation Outstanding Senior and carried the College of Business and Economics’ banner at the 2016 spring commencement ceremonies. WVU’s combined varsity athletic teams have an Academic Progress Rate (APR) score of 979. The graduation rate for student-athletes has been impressive, to say the least, over the past three years. For the 2014-15 academic year, WVU had seven teams with perfect 1,000 scores: rifle, wrestling, men’s basketball, women’s soccer, rowing, tennis and women’s swimming and diving. The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each studentathlete on scholarship. The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation and provides a measure of each team’s academic performance. The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) provides a forum for the “voice of the student-athlete” on WVU’s campus. SAAC membership provides feedback to administration about how to better WVU athletic programs. They offer input on the rules, regulations and policies that affect

2016Outlook The West Virginia University women’s volleyball team will look to rebound from a season of transition in 2015 when it takes the court at Penn State on August 26. For his second year at the helm of the Mountaineers, Reed Sunahara returns a crew that consists of last season’s kills leader, blocking leader and assists leader in addition to eight newcomers. HITTERS The hitters will be one of the Mountaineers’ youngest but deepest positions, headlined by Morgan Montgomery. After a breakout season in 2015, Montgomery returns for her junior year with a full year of consistent play under her belt. After producing just 38 kills as a freshman in 2014, Montgomery was WVU’s best hitter in last season, ranking third in the Big 12 with 3.74 kills per set. She will be joined by rookies Payton Caffrey, Katelyn Evans and Maggie Hallow as well as Zuri Smith, who transferred from Colorado. “We have a young group of pin hitters, but we will have more depth this year than we did last year,” said Sunahara, who enters his second season at the helm of the Mountaineers. “We’ll

VOLLEYBALL

be more athletic and physical. Their versatility will allow them to play all six rotations. They’ll all bring a competitive drive and high volleyball IQ.” BLOCKERS Despite the loss of Caleah Wells to graduation, a pair of upperclassmen will be a strong core for the blockers. After leading the team in blocks as a junior, Hannah Shreve returns for her final campaign with the Mountaineers. Shreve found herself on the cusp of the Big 12 rankings last year, leading WVU with 0.99 blocks per set for a total of 94 on the season. She also added 1.20 kills per set with nine aces. Junior Mia Swanegan contributed 71 total blocks in her first season after transferring from TCU, averaging 0.73 per set. She also added 1.84 kills per set for a total of 178 on the season. Freshman Natania Levak, also a right side, enrolled at WVU in Morgantown and got a head start after practicing with the team throughout the spring season. Fellow newcomer Smith may also be asked to step in at middle blocker. “Out middle blockers are our most experienced group,” said Sunahara. “The blockers we have all bring a

different skill set, which allows us to run multiple options. The will anchor our frontline defense.” LIBERO/DEFENSIVE SPECIALIST Libero Gianna Gotterba, who has proven to be one of the Mountaineers’ most consistent players over the past two seasons, enters her junior season after leading WVU in digs the past two seasons. Gotterba won the job as a freshman and hasn’t looked back, leading the floor defense with 3.56 digs per set – good for sixth in the Big 12. Gotterba also was second on the squad with 15 service aces. MaTia Hughes posted 2.08 digs per set after transferring to WVU from NYU, while Taylor Cross also was an addition to the defense in 2015 as she added 0.75 digs per set after transferring from New Mexico. Newcomer Gabrielle Cuckovich will add depth to this positional group. “We have a good balance of youth and experience at this position,” said Sunahara. “We are expecting this group to provide us a high level of ball control and defense. They will solidify our back row play.”


SETTERS Haley Roe stepped in last season after senior Brittany Sample suffered a season-ending injury, moving from defensive specialist to setter. Roe averaged 4.56 assists per set in 100 sets for a total of 456 on the season, and 9.37 assists per set with a total of 431 in games that she started at setter. Freshman Erin Slinde arrived in Morgantown in January and spent the spring season practicing with the squad. Fellow newcomer Julia Avoletta also boasts experience at the position and adds depth. “Setter is another position at which we have youth and experience with unlimited potential,” said Sunahara. “We are also adding size to help with our blocking and defense. They’ll be able to run a more efficient offense because of their skill set.” SCHEDULE The slate features 12 home games for the Mountaineers, including a home tournament, as well as nonconference action in Charleston, West Virginia; University Park, Pennsylvania and California. Fourteen matches will be played against opponents who qualified for the 2015 NCAA Championships. “I think it’s a very competitive schedule,” said coach Reed Sunahara, who enters his second year at the helm. “We will find out early where we stand. We’ll be competing against nine teams that made the NCAA Tournament. It will be great preparation for the upcoming Big 12 season.” Following the Gold/Blue Scrimmage on Aug. 20, WVU officially opens the season on Aug. 26 at the Penn State Classic in University Park, Pennsylvania. The Mountaineers will face the host Nittany Lions, who finished the 2015 season ranked No. 9 in the AVCA Coaches Poll after reaching the regional semifinals of the 2015 NCAA Tournament, at 7 p.m. on Friday before taking on North Carolina and Georgia Southern on Saturday. The Tar Heels came in at No. 25 in the final coaches’ poll of the 2015 season after advancing to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. West Virginia kicks off September by co-hosting The Capitol Classic with in-state foe Marshall at the Charleston Civic Center on Sept. 2-3. The squad will take on Indiana State on Friday morning before defending the Golden Ball trophy against the Thundering Herd later that evening. WVU’s part in the event will wrap up Saturday morning against Morehead State.

GIANNA GOTTERBA

The Mountaineers head to the West Coast from Sept. 9-12, where they will compete in a three-match tournament at Cal before heading to Pacific. After opening with the Cal Bears on Friday, WVU will face Santa Clara and Grand Canyon in Berkeley in front of several families as both junior Gianna Gotterba and senior Haley Roe hail from Northern California. On Sept. 12, the team will make the hour-long trip to Stockton for a nonconference match at Pacific, where Gotterba will face her twin sister Katrin, who is the libero for the Tigers. The bulk of the nonconference slate wraps up in Morgantown with the WVU Invitational on Sept. 16-17. The Mountaineers welcome Winthrop, Akron and Dartmouth for the event, and will face the Eagles on Friday evening before squaring off with the Zips on Saturday afternoon. Saturday evening’s finale will be a showdown between the Mountaineers and the Big Green.

October kicks off with back-to-back contests against Oklahoma. The Sooners will play in Morgantown twice, on Oct. 7 and 8, after travel issues forced the Mountaineers to play two matches in Norman last season. On Oct. 12, the team will make the short jaunt to Moon Township, Pennsylvania, to close out the nonconference slate at Robert Morris. Resuming Big 12 play, the Mountaineers travel to Kansas for a pair of matches. They’ll square off with Kansas in Lawrence on Oct. 20 before making their way to Manhattan on Oct. 22 to face Kansas State. Both squads made last year’s NCAA tournament, with the Jayhawks falling to eventual champion Nebraska in the semifinals. The team caps the month by hosting Texas Tech in Morgantown on Oct. 29.

Following tradition, West Virginia opens Big 12 play on Sept. 20 when perennial contender Texas comes to town. The Longhorns were the 2016 national runner-up after falling to Nebraska in the title game last December. After a trip to Lubbock, Texas, to face Texas Tech on Sept. 24, the Mountaineers return to the WVU Coliseum to host four straight. Home matches against 2015 NCAA tournament qualifiers TCU (Sept. 28) and Iowa State (Sept. 30) close out the month of September.

WVU will hit the road for four of its six matches in November, starting Nov. 2 when the Mountaineers travel to Ames, Iowa, for a return trip to Iowa State. The return to Morgantown to host the K-State Wildcats on Nov. 9 before heading to Waco, Texas, to wrap their season series with Baylor on Nov. 12. The home slate closes out on Nov. 16 when WVU welcomes the Jayhawks to the WVU Coliseum. The team will then spend the week of Thanksgiving in Texas, as the Mountaineers first make their way to Fort Worth to face the Horned Frogs (Nov. 23) before capping the regular season in Austin with the Longhorns (Nov. 26).

SEASON SUNAHARA TAKES THE HELM Head coach Reed Sunahara took the helm of the Mountaineers in March of 2015, after Jill Kramer departed to return to her alma mater, TCU. A native of Hilo, Hawaii, and a graduate of UCLA, Sunahara arrived in Morgantown following a one-year stint as the head coach at Buffalo. He brought more than 20 years of international and collegiate coaching experience with him, having served as former UCLA teammate Karch Kiraly’s assistant on the U.S. Women’s National Team after spending more than a decade as the head coach at Cincinnati. Ohio State men’s assistant Sean Bryon and Liberty assistant Rebecca Rudnick joined Sunahara on the bench.

NEW FACES

SAMPLE, WELLS CAP CAREERS

ROE, MONTGOMERY STEP UP

Eight new players joined the WVU volleyball team for the 2015 season as several departed following the coaching change. Middle blocker Mia Swanegan joined the Mountaineers looking for a fresh start after seeing limited action at TCU during her freshman season, and immediately started making contributions to the squad. The Blue Springs, Missouri, native was second on the team with 71 total blocks, averaging 0.73 blocks per set with 1.84 kills per set. Junior transfer Dzeni Hadzisehovic (Western Wyoming) hit .250 with 1.90 kills per set and 20 block assists, while freshman Bridgett Talia averaged 1.83 kills per set. Fellow rookie Abby Brown also saw a few starts and was joined in the freshman class by Paige Zywick. Junior transfer MaTia Hughes (NYU) added 2.08 digs per set, while sophomore transfer Taylor Cross (New Mexico) chipped in 0.75 digs per set. Walk-on Andrea Phung also joined the team in her junior season.

Seniors Brittany Sample and Caleah Wells were celebrated prior to the Mountaineers’ match against Kansas on November 20 as both capped careers that put them into the WVU record books. Despite an injury that finished her career on September 30, Sample departed Morgantown ranked seventh all-time with 2,882 career assists and eighth with 8.12 assist per set. Wells finished her career ranked ninth 261 total blocks. Most impressively, she missed just one match in her four-year career, giving her a total of 417 sets played in 121 matches.

After an injury to starting setter Brittany Sample knocked her out for the season, junior Haley Roe stepped in as the team’s starter in October. Seeing her first significant action at the position, Roe averaged 4.56 assists per set in 100 sets for a total of 456 on the season. She posted 9.37 assists per set with a total of 431 in games that she started at setter, which would have ranked seventh in the Big 12. Following the departure of outside hitter Jordan Anderson, sophomore Morgan Montgomery was called upon to fill her shoes and finished the season ranked third in the league with 3.74 kills per set. Montgomery’s 31 kills in the team’s five-set win over Marshall were just seven shy of her 2014 season total of 38.

GOLDEN BALL TROPHY COMES BACK TO MORGANTOWN A career-high 31 kills by Morgan Montgomery and a four-set rally led the West Virginia University volleyball team to a 3-2 win over in-state rival Marshall in the Mountaineers’ home opener at the WVU Coliseum on Sept. 15, 2015. WVU took the match in set scores of 20-25, 25-23, 22-25, 26-24 and 15-9. The win was West Virginia’s first over Marshall since 2010, and put the Golden Ball Trophy back in Morgantown for the first time since then. The Thundering Herd had taken the previous four meetings. It was an exciting finish, as the Mountaineers (3-6) were just two points away from defeat in the fourth set, but

used an 8-3 really claim the set in a 26-24 win and force a decisive fifth set. WVU lead the fifth set 8-3 before the Herd stormed back to cut the deficit to just one at 9-8. However, the Mountaineers were relentless used a 6-0 run, capped by a Haley Roe service ace, for the win.

12 digs for her fourth double-double of the season. She was one of three Mountaineers in double figures as Caleah Wells set a personal best with 17 kills and Mia Swanegan notched 11 in the match. Abby Brown and Hannah Shreve each had three.

“I thought we did a nice job tonight,” said WVU coach Reed Sunahara, who made his WVU Coliseum debut after taking over the team in March. “We never gave up. Our girls are resilient, and they fought and fought until they came out on top. I’m proud of them for doing that.”

Brittany Sample was just shy of her career high, posting a season-best 59 assists on the Mountaineers’ 68 kills. She just missed a double-double with nine digs and added a trio of blocks as well. Shreve led the blocking effort with four, while Wells added three and Montgomery and Swanegan each registered a pair. Libero Gianna Gotterba led the floor defense with

21 digs, with Melvina Brown adding nine and Roe notching seven. The Mountaineers hit for a .176 clip as a team with four aces and 8.0 team blocks. The Herd finished with 53 kills on .191 hitting and 11.0 team blocks. Montgomery had four kills in the first set to lead the Mountaineers, who hit .100 with 11 kills and a block. Marshall had 11 kills as well, but took advantage of eight WVU miscues in taking the set. A pair of Wells kills helped WVU tie the set 9-9 on a Marshall attacking error. The teams traded points before a kill by Swanegan gave WVU the 14-12 lead. The momentum then swung to the Thundering Herd, who took three in a row for an 18-17 lead on a kill. WVU re-gained the lead, 19-18, on a pair of Marshall errors but the Thundering Herd closed the set on a 3-0 run for the 25-20 win.

of team blocks. Marshall used a 6-0 run midway through to take an 18-13 lead and later took five in a row to put the score at 23-18. A kill put the Herd at set-point with a 24-21 lead, but Sample added a kill and Montgomery notched three for the 26-24 win, forcing a fifth set with the match tied 2-2.

The Mountaineers carried the momentum forward, racing to a 5-1 lead before a pair of Marshall miscues made it 8-3. The Herd used a 4-0 run to cut the deficit to one before West Virginia rattled off six straight, earning the 15-9 win on the ace from Roe.

The Mountaineers rebounded in the second set, hitting .244 with six kills from Montgomery and Wells. West Virginia tied the set, 14-14, before Marshall returned the favor at 17-17. A Montgomery kill put the Mountaineers ahead 21-19 but the Thundering Herd evened the score with a kill, 21-21. The teams battled to a 23-23 tie before Swanegan put one through the pins and a Marshall attack went out of bounds to give WVU the 25-23 win and tie the match, 1-1. Despite 13 WVU kills in the third, Marshall used 11 kills and committed just three errors in winning the third set, 25-22. The Herd took a 13-9 advantage midway through the stanza before rattling off three in a row to push their lead to 22-16. WVU came within three on a block by Sample and Shreve, but Marshall took two of the last three points to claim the win and take a 2-1 lead. Montgomery continued her stellar performance into the fourth set, firing off 10 kills as WVU hit .220 with a pair

E. GORDON Gee, PRESIDENT

Dr. E. Gordon Gee is one of America’s most prominent higher education leaders, having served as president of some of the most prestigious public and private universities for more than three decades. When he returned to lead West Virginia University in 2014 as the institution’s 24th president, it was a homecoming of sorts. He was first named WVU president in 1981 at age 36 – at the time, considered among the youngest persons to ever serve as a university president. He led WVU until 1985 when he went on to presidencies at the University of Colorado (198590), Brown University (1998-2000) and Vanderbilt University (2001-07). He served as president of The Ohio State University from 1990-97 and again from 2007-13. On his return to the Morgantown campus, he said, “This is not a job to me; it is a calling.” His leadership style bears that out as he works tirelessly to advance the University’s land-grant mission and open doors to the American dream. In his latest address to the University community, he called for reinventing education for our young people, on our campuses, throughout our state and beyond; transforming health care for our citizens; and cultivating prosperity in our communities. “Doing our best for the 1.8 million people of West Virginia is our noblest calling and our proudest distinction,” he said. Gee has built a special relationship with the students as well as the state’s citizens, making it a point to visit students where they live, learn and socialize -- and visiting all 55 West Virginia counties during his inaugural year – and at least half in subsequent years. Born in Vernal, Utah, Gee graduated from the University of Utah with an honors degree in history and earned his J.D. and Ed.D. degrees from Columbia University. He clerked under Chief Justice David T. Lewis of the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals before being named a judicial fellow and staff assistant to the U.S. Supreme Court. In this role, he worked for Chief Justice Warren Burger on administrative and legal problems of the Court and federal judiciary. Gee returned to Utah as an associate professor and associate dean in the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University, and was granted full professorship in 1978. One year later, he became dean of the WVU College of Law, and, in 1981, was named WVU’s 19th president. Gee serves on several education-governance organizations and committees, including the Big 12 Conference Council of Presidents and formerly the Business Higher Education Forum and the American Association of Universities. He was chair of the American Council on Education’s Commission on Higher Education Attainment and served as co-chair of the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities’ Energy Advisory Committee. In 2009, King Abdulaziz University in Saudi Arabia invited

him to join its international advisory board. In 2009, Time magazine named him one of the top 10 university presidents in the United States. Active in many national professional and service organizations, he is on the executive committee of the National 4-H Council Board of Trustees and serves on the Board of Directors of the American Council on Education, the nation’s largest higher education organization. He has also served on the boards for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and Limited Brands. In 2011, Gee began serving as secretary on the Board of Directors of Ohio’s economic development program, JobsOhio. In 2011-12, Governor John Kasich asked him to chair the Ohio Higher Education Capital Funding Collaborative and the Ohio Higher Education Funding Commission. In December 2012, he began serving on the Columbus Education Commission. Gee has received many honorary degrees, awards, fellowships and recognitions. He is a fellow of the prestigious American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world’s largest science organization. In 1994, Gee received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the University of Utah, as well as from Teachers College of Columbia University. In 2013, he received the ACE Council of Fellows/Fidelity Investments Mentor Award and the Outstanding Academic Leader of the Year Award on behalf of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. He is the co-author of 11 books, including Law, Policy and Higher Education, published in 2012. He has also authored many papers and articles on law and education. Gee’s daughter, Rebekah, is the Medicaid Medical Director for the State of Louisiana, and an assistant professor of Public Health and Medicine at Louisiana State University. She is also a Norman F. Gant/American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology/IOM Anniversary Fellow. Dr. Rebekah Gee is married to David Patrón and they have five children.

SHANELyons

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

Since being named Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and Associate Vice President at West Virginia University in January 2015, Shane Lyons has not been interested in headlines, he’s been interested in results. Working furiously behind the scenes, Lyons rolls up his sleeves every day for the betterment of WVU’s student-athletes, fans and athletic department. In his second year on the job, he keeps his fingers on the pulse of more than $110 million in athletic facility improvements that will be completed in the next year. In fact, his first year on the job can be defined as a year of fan enhancements to the WVU Coliseum and Milan Puskar Stadium as he has worked tirelessly to modernize 46- and 36-year-old facilities. Next up on his agenda are student-athlete enhancements with a new Olympic sport weight and training room. Also in the coming year, Lyons will continue to work with the Morgantown community on bringing a $45 million aquatic and track center to Morgantown, which will provide health and fitness benefits to all ages. When he’s not in his office, he’s an energized fundraiser where his efforts and honesty are appreciated by Mountaineer Athletic Club donors. Lyons oversees 18 varsity sports, a department budget of approximately $88 million, 200 employees, and approximately 500 student-athletes. He has already put the finishing touches on a $21 million baseball park and renovations are in the final stages to the football and basketball facilities that will bring long overdue new restrooms, concessions, ADA seating and fan comfort. Leaving the headlines to others, Lyons, confidently behind the scenes, directed a department in his first year that brought an 18th national championship for rifle, 30 All Americans, 110 All-Conference performers, 18 academic award winners and 109 Academic All-Conference selections. His work with WVU President E. Gordon Gee’s senior leadership team, as well as the Big 12 Conference and other national committees has brought additional respect and positive exposure to his department and the University. He currently serves on the Big 12 Administration Committee, Finance and Budget Committee and the Game Management and Officiating Subcommittee. Lyons came to West Virginia after spending three years as the deputy director of athletics and chief operating officer at Alabama where he worked closely on day-to-day strategic leadership and direction of the Crimson Tide Athletic program. During his time at Alabama, his responsibilities included oversight of a $120 million budget, management of the day-to-day operations of the department and oversight of the Crimson Tide’s 21 sports teams. In addition, he played a pivotal role in a historic renegotiation of Alabama’s multimedia rights agreement that started in 2014 and was involved in several significant capital projects totaling more than $85 million. The Crimson Tide won seven national titles in five different sports during his time there – two in football, two in men’s golf, one in women’s golf, one in gymnastics and one in softball. He also played a critical role in the hiring of four Alabama head coaches. Prior to joining the Alabama staff in November 2011, Lyons spent 10 years as an associate commissioner at the Atlantic Coast Conference. At the ACC, Lyons focused on conference-wide compliance and academic initiatives, providing direct assistance to the conference’s presidents, chancellors and athletics directors in matters dealing with NCAA regulatory matters. In addition, he served as the ACC’s human resource manager and was responsible for the administration, negotiation and mediation of the employee benefits program and managing the conference’s organizational policies and procedures. He was part of the senior administrative team for ACC events, including the football championship game, the men’s basketball tournament and men’s and women’s NCAA basketball events. He also was a member and served as chairman on many prominent committees within the NCAA Governance structure during his tenure with the ACC. Prior to working at the ACC, Lyons served as associate athletics director for compliance at Big 12 member Texas Tech from 1998 to 2001. During that time, Lyons assumed responsibility for the leadership, administration and implementation of a comprehensive NCAA compliance program with emphasis toward rules education and extensive monitoring systems. He also served as oversight administrator for several of the Red Raiders’ athletic teams and had financial and operational supervision of the strength and conditioning, nutritional and sports medicine units.

Before joining Texas Tech, Lyons worked at the NCAA for almost 10 years as a senior membership services representative, where he was responsible for the oversight and coordination of the 25 membership service representatives. Lyons began his career in college athletics in July 1988 as assistant commissioner of the Big South Conference. With the Big South, he was in charge of conference-wide compliance and championships. A native of Parkersburg, West Virginia, and a graduate of Parkersburg High, Lyons was a standout basketball player for the Big Reds. He earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in sport management from WVU in 1987 and 1988, respectively. He and his wife, Emily, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, have two children: Cameron and Brooke. Lyons is the University’s 12th athletic director.
