2000 NCAA Champion<br />

Joachim Olsen<br />

2010-11 <strong>Idaho</strong> Cross Country/Track & Field Yearbook<br />

The <strong>University</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Idaho</strong> track and field program has had success in the recent past, but its<br />

championship roots go back to the turn <strong>of</strong> the century. The <strong>Idaho</strong> team had a breakout year<br />

in 1905, when it finished second in the Lewis and Clark Exposition Games at Portland, Ore.<br />

Leading the charge for the <strong>Vandals</strong> was Clarence “Hec” Edmundson, who won two events for<br />

the three-man team, despite competing against nationally recognized schools from across<br />

the Northwest. Edmundson impressed spectators with his graceful form and unfaltering<br />

determination. The Lewis and Clark Games helped lay the groundwork for a growing track<br />

and field team that would go on to add many more pages to the books <strong>of</strong> Vandal legend.<br />

In 1908, Edmundson organized the school’s first cross country team and later that same year,<br />

he represented the United States in the 800m run at the Olympic Games at London. In 1909, Edmundson was the top halfmiler<br />

in the country, a title which held up for three more years. By the time he graduated in 1910, Edmundson had set such<br />

high standards that some <strong>of</strong> his school records were untouched for 17 years. In 1912, he headed to Stockholm for his second<br />

Olympic Games competition, where he was a finalist in the 800m and a semifinalist in the 400m. Edmundson was the first, but<br />

certainly not the last, Olympian to hail from the<br />

state <strong>of</strong> <strong>Idaho</strong>.<br />

By 1915, yet another Vandal track star was<br />

receiving national acclaim. John L. “Buck” Philips set<br />

a collegiate record at the Penn Relays at Philadelphia by<br />

throwing the javelin 177 feet, an eight-foot improvement on the<br />

previous record.<br />

Vandal cross country got its first taste <strong>of</strong> championships in 1923 by<br />

winning the Pacific Coast title, then repeating the feat the following year. These back-toback<br />

championships forged <strong>Idaho</strong>’s legacy <strong>of</strong> great distance runners.<br />

While back-to-back championships are great, there is nothing quite like five in a row.<br />

Vandal harriers established a Pacific Coast cross country dynasty from 1937 to 1941,<br />

winning every PCC title during that time. The success <strong>of</strong> the team attracted <strong>Idaho</strong>’s next<br />

great runner, Vic Dyrgall. In 1939, Dyrgall began his career as one <strong>of</strong> the top runners in<br />

the nation and one <strong>of</strong> the first great Vandal athletes. In just his freshman year, Dyrgall<br />

qualified for the NCAA National Championship, where he finished seventh. He would<br />

go on to win trophy after trophy for the university until World War II interrupted his<br />

collegiate career. In 1946, Dyrgall returned from his service in the war to lead the <strong>Vandals</strong><br />

to yet another Pacific Coast Championship.<br />

In 1952, <strong>Idaho</strong> track and field got its first NCAA champion in Dave Martindale, who<br />

took home the crown in the pole vault with a height <strong>of</strong> 13-9. <strong>Idaho</strong>’s next great athlete was<br />

Steve Brown, who made waves in 1967 when he became the first person in the West to<br />

clear seven feet in the high jump. Brown took home the NCAA high jump title with a leap<br />

<strong>of</strong> 7 feet, 1½ inches to become the <strong>Idaho</strong>’s second NCAA champion.<br />

Vandal sprinter Chris Stokes, a member <strong>of</strong> <strong>Idaho</strong>’s 1985 school-record 4x100m relay<br />

team, probably will be remembered for something a little different. Stokes, a native <strong>of</strong><br />

Jamaica, was one <strong>of</strong> the original members <strong>of</strong> the Jamaican bobsled team that competed in<br />

the 1988 Olympics and inspired the Disney movie “Cool Runnings.”<br />

It became apparent as early as high school that there was something special about Dan O’Brien. In his senior year at Henley High School at Klamath Falls, Ore., he<br />

earned four state track titles and earned all-state honors in both football and basketball. O’Brien was a 1989 NCAA qualifier in the 55m hurdles, where he finished seventh.<br />

In that same year, he established a school record <strong>of</strong> 7,988 in the decathlon. That still stands today as the <strong>Idaho</strong><br />

school record and the all-time Big Sky Conference record.<br />

In 1991, O’Brien began a career <strong>of</strong> world domination in the decathlon with a gold-medal finish in the event<br />

at the World Championships with a score <strong>of</strong> 8,812. Later that year, he won the event at the USA Outdoors<br />

with a score <strong>of</strong> 8,844 and earned a No. 1 ranking by Track and Field News. After a no-height in the pole vault<br />

kept him out <strong>of</strong> the 1992 Olympic Games, O’Brien came back with a vengeance. At a meet in Talence, France,<br />

later that year, he set a world record in the decathlon with a score <strong>of</strong> 8,891 and beat Olympic champion Robert<br />

Zmelik by 547 points.<br />

O’Brien won his second World Championship in 1993 with an 8,817-point effort to give him another No.<br />

1 world ranking. That same year, O’Brien set a world record, which still stands today, in the heptathlon at<br />

the World Indoor Championship with a score <strong>of</strong> 6,476. Over the next two years, O’Brien won another World<br />

Four-time All-American<br />

O’Brien won the decathlon at the 1996 Olympic Trials and earned a spot on the 1996 U.S. Olympic Team.<br />

He made the most <strong>of</strong> his opportunity and earned the gold medal in the event to become the first American<br />

to win the decathlon in 20 years. After not competing in 1997 because <strong>of</strong> injury, O’Brien returned in 1998 for<br />

the Goodwill Games, where he scored 8,755 points and earned his record sixth No. 1 ranking from Track and<br />

Field News. In November <strong>of</strong> 2006, “The World’s Greatest Athlete,” Dan O’Brien was inducted into the USA<br />

Track and Field Hall <strong>of</strong> Fame.<br />

As the <strong>Vandals</strong> changed athletic conferences, one thing didn’t change – success. <strong>Idaho</strong> won five Big Sky<br />

outdoor team championships from 1981 to 1996, then took the move to the Big West in stride and took home<br />

2010-11 <strong>Idaho</strong> Cross Country/Track & Field Yearbook<br />

Tradition<br />

the 1997 Big West Outdoor Championship in its first year in<br />

the conference. That title would be the first <strong>of</strong> six<br />

total team titles and 60 individual Big West titles<br />

from 1997 to 2005.<br />

In 1996, Tawanda Chiwira came to <strong>Idaho</strong> from<br />

Zimbabwe. In his four years at <strong>Idaho</strong>, Chiwira was an All-<br />

American in both the 400m dash and the 4x400m relay. He left the school as the Vandal<br />

men’s all-time top conference outdoor scorer with 81 points. A 1996 Olympian and World<br />

Championship finalist, Chiwira used his experience to help create a foundation <strong>of</strong> success<br />

for his <strong>Idaho</strong> teams. Chiwira holds Zimbabwe’s 200m indoor national record and was a<br />

member <strong>of</strong> two national-record relays, as well. He was a member <strong>of</strong> Zimbabwe’s nationalrecord<br />

4x400m and 4x100m relays. Former Vandal teammate Felix Kamangirira was also<br />

a member <strong>of</strong> the 4x100m relay team.<br />

In 1998, <strong>Idaho</strong> welcomed another world-class athlete in high jumper Hugo Munoz <strong>of</strong><br />

Peru. Like Chiwira, Munoz was a 1996 Olympian. During his Vandal career, Munoz was<br />

a two-time NCAA qualifier. In 1999, Munoz broke a 20-year-old outdoor school record<br />

in the high jump with a leap <strong>of</strong> 7-3¾. Munoz’s indoor personal best <strong>of</strong> 7-3¾ in the event is<br />

the national record for Peru.<br />

Before helping set both the indoor and outdoor school records in the 4x400m relay in<br />

1998, former Vandal Adekunle Adejuyigbe was a world-class sprinter from Nigeria. In<br />

1995, Adejuyigbe earned a bronze medal at the World Championships in Gothenburg,<br />

Sweden. In doing so, Adejuigbe became the youngest medalist in the history <strong>of</strong> the World<br />

Championships. He was only 18 years, 5 months old at the time.<br />

Joachim Olsen came to <strong>Idaho</strong> from Denmark in 1999 and immediately established<br />

himself as both a Big West and a national force in the throws. In Olsen’s four years at<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong>, he earned six Big West individual titles and qualified for the NCAA Championship<br />

every year. In six NCAA Championship appearances for the shot put, Olsen never finished<br />

lower than third and took home the 2000 NCAA title to become the third NCAA champion<br />

in <strong>Idaho</strong> track and field history. Olsen also qualified twice in the discus and finished sixth<br />

both times. Olsen left <strong>Idaho</strong> in 2002 as the most decorated athlete in <strong>Idaho</strong> track and field<br />

history with eight All-America honors to his name.<br />

Olsen went on to compete in the 2004 Olympic Games for Denmark, where he won a bronze medal. He ended the 2004 track and field season as the world’s topranked<br />

athlete in the shot put.<br />

In 2001, thrower Katja Schreiber brought <strong>Idaho</strong> its first women’s NCAA individual title. After finishing fourth at the 2000 NCAA Outdoor Championship, Schreiber<br />

returned in 2001 and launched the discus 197-11 to earn the national title. Her closest competition was more than 13 feet behind.<br />

Sprinter Angela Whyte ended her Vandal career in 2003 as a four-time All-American, five-time Big West individual champion and the owner <strong>of</strong> 13 school records.<br />

Whyte was a two-time Big West Athlete <strong>of</strong> the Year as she helped bring the <strong>Idaho</strong> women team titles in 2001 and 2003. She also finished third in the heptathlon at the<br />

2003 NCAA Outdoor Championship.<br />

In 2003, Whyte competed in her first IAAF World Championship where she finished 12th in the 100m hurdles. In 2007, she<br />

finished eighth at the competition. Whyte represented Canada in the Olympics in 2004 and 2008, with a sixth-place finish in<br />

2004.<br />

In 2005, <strong>Idaho</strong> moved to the Western Athletic Conference and immediately made an impact <strong>Idaho</strong> took the women’s cross<br />

country team and individual titles by placing four runners in the top five, which included WAC champion and Cross Country<br />

Athlete <strong>of</strong> the Year, Dee Olson. In 2006, another Vandal took home the individual title. True freshman Rhea Richter won the<br />

women’s individual title and earned WAC Athlete <strong>of</strong> the Year and WAC Freshman <strong>of</strong> the Year honors. In 2008, Allix Lee-Painter<br />

won the women’s title and earned WAC Athlete <strong>of</strong> the Year accolades in cross country, then followed it up with a 2009 WAC<br />

Indoor Track Performer <strong>of</strong> the Year and in 2010 with a WAC Outdoor Track Performer <strong>of</strong> the Year honor and WAC High Point<br />

Award. She finished her career in 2010 as the only woman in WAC history<br />

to be named Athlete <strong>of</strong> the Year in three differenlt sports. Ulrike Hartz was<br />

Two-Time All-American<br />

Tawanda Chiwira<br />

named WAC Outdoor Field Performer <strong>of</strong> the Year in 2010 after winning the<br />

heptathlon and javelin and scoring in the long jump, 200m and 4x100m relay.<br />

Paul Dittmer was named WAC Freshman <strong>of</strong> the Year for the 2007 outdoor<br />

season, while Markus Geiger grabbed the honor in 2008-09 in both men’s<br />

cross country and indoor track and field.<br />

In 2010, <strong>Idaho</strong>’s women claimed their third WAC cross country crown by<br />

putting five runners in the top 15. Markus Geiger grabbed 2011 WAC Men’s<br />

Indoor Track Co-Performer <strong>of</strong> the Year honors after winning the 3000m and<br />

taking runner-up honors in the 3000m. Junior Barry Britt made <strong>Idaho</strong> history<br />

in the 2011 outdoor season as the first Vandal man to earn double gold in the<br />

5000m and 10,000m at the same conference championship meet.<br />

Since joining the WAC <strong>of</strong>ficially in 2005, Vandal cross country and track<br />

and field athletes have taken home 78 WAC individual titles and three team<br />

crowns.<br />

Kibbie Event Center, affectionately<br />

knownas the “Kibbie Dome,” will<br />

undergo the second stage <strong>of</strong> a<br />

major renovation in the summer<br />

<strong>of</strong> 2011. A few hundred feet to the<br />

West, another history-filled <strong>Idaho</strong><br />

facility, the Dan O’Brien Track &<br />

Field Complex, is getting a face-lift<br />

<strong>of</strong> its own. The home <strong>of</strong> Vandal track<br />

and field is being completely rebuilt<br />

in time for the 2011-12 season.<br />

Interior upgrades to the Kibbie Dome include the new Bob Curtis<br />

Press Box (top) on the North side <strong>of</strong> the field, and the new premium<br />

seating sections (bottom), including loge boxes, suites and a club<br />

room. These renovations will update and expand the press box<br />

area and add an extra revenue source for the <strong>University</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Idaho</strong><br />

with the new seating options and the best view in college football.<br />

Another Title in the Books<br />

For the third time since 2005, <strong>Idaho</strong> women’s cross country claimed a Western Athletic Conference team title. The<br />

Vandal women earned four all-WAC honors and put four athletes in the top 11 to run away with the team title. It was<br />

the perfect cap to an impressive all-around season that saw <strong>Idaho</strong> earn a ranking as high as 12th in the West Region<br />

by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.<br />

In a sport strongly individual-oriented, <strong>Idaho</strong>’s team strength stood out all season. In the team’s six meets in 2010,<br />

the <strong>Vandals</strong> had six different top-five finisher combinations, while junior Julia Veseth, freshman Hannah Kiser and<br />

junior Lauren Schaffer each claimed the top finisher spot twice. That balance was key in the team’s WAC title run,<br />

and in team wins at the All-<strong>Idaho</strong> Cup (Moscow, <strong>Idaho</strong>) and the Charles Bowles Invitational (Salem, Ore.).<br />

October’s WAC Cross Country Championships marked <strong>Idaho</strong>’s first go-around hosting<br />

a WAC event, and <strong>Idaho</strong>’s women made sure it was a success. They added to their WAC<br />

trophy haul that already includes the 2005 and 2007 team titles. Since <strong>Idaho</strong> joined the<br />

WAC for the 2005 season, <strong>Idaho</strong> has won either the women’s individual or team title<br />

every year except for 2009.<br />

Schaffer and Kiser were all-WAC first team honorees, while seniors Maggie Miller and Erica Digby took second-team<br />

all-WAC accolades. Four more <strong>Vandals</strong>, Veseth, Schaffer, junior Anna Kalbrener and sophomore Laurel Draper, were<br />

honored as WAC All-Academic honorees after the season.<br />

In a second-place team effort at the Sundodger Invitational (Seattle, Wash.), Kiser broke <strong>Idaho</strong>’s freshman course<br />

record with a time <strong>of</strong> 21:30.79 on the 6000m course in a ninth-place finish, while Veseth was close behind in 10th.<br />

The 93-runner field saw seven <strong>Vandals</strong> in the top 32 and every <strong>Idaho</strong> athlete in the top half <strong>of</strong> the finishers.<br />

Young <strong>Vandals</strong> Show Promise<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong>’s men’s cross country team found itself in the uncommon situation this season <strong>of</strong> having a team composed<br />

almost entirely <strong>of</strong> underclassmen. That doesn’t mean the <strong>Vandals</strong> were short on talent or experience.<br />

Fueled by a friendly rivalry between a pair <strong>of</strong> standout runners, and the emergence <strong>of</strong> a crop <strong>of</strong> young athletes,<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong>’s men took the All-<strong>Idaho</strong> Cup team title to open the season, grabbed third out <strong>of</strong> 10 teams at the Sundodger<br />

Invitational, finished fourth out <strong>of</strong> 23 at the Charles Bowles Invitational, fourth at the Dellinger Invitational and fifth<br />

at the WAC Championships.<br />

Sophomore Barry Britt, an All-Region pick and first-team all-WAC honoree, was <strong>Idaho</strong>’s top finisher three times,<br />

while junior Markus Geiger, also a first-team all-WAC runner, claimed the other three<br />

top spots. Britt broke <strong>Idaho</strong>’s course record for the Charles Bowles Invitational course,<br />

while Geiger out-kicked Britt to win the All-<strong>Idaho</strong> Cup individual title at the beginning<br />

<strong>of</strong> the season.<br />

Sophomore Jeff Osborn and juniors Alex Brekke, Michael Armon and Jeremiah<br />

Dubie made significant strides throughout the season, including Osborn’s 103-second<br />

improvement and Brekke’s 95-tick jump on the Sundodger course. The team’s 24:48.19 average time on the Charles<br />

Bowles course is its fastest ever<br />

Britt kept things rolling in a big way after the season, as he went on to finish seventh at the Canadian Championships<br />

and earn a spot on the Canadian senior team for the North American, Central American and Caribbean<br />

Championships. After the team took second and Britt finished fourth individually, he joined the team in representing<br />

Canada at the IAAF World Cross Country Championships, where he finished 98th.<br />

2011 Indoor Track & Field<br />

www.Go<strong>Vandals</strong>.com 10 <strong>University</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Idaho</strong>


2011 Indoor Season in Review<br />

<strong>University</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Idaho</strong><br />

2010-11 <strong>Idaho</strong> Cross Country/Track & Field Yearbook<br />

There were honors and accomplishments abound for <strong>Idaho</strong> track and field in the 2011 indoor season.<br />

The year was taken as a developmental year, as a handful <strong>of</strong> men’s and women’s athletes redshirted the<br />

season, but <strong>Idaho</strong>’s young talent made itself known in their stead. Vandal athletes claimed six total Western<br />

Athletic Conference titles, three each for the men and women, and only one <strong>of</strong> those was taken by a senior.<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong>’s men took fourth in the team standings with 69 points and won three WAC titles in 2011. Junior<br />

Markus Geiger was <strong>Idaho</strong>’s star <strong>of</strong> the meet with his 18 points scored, 5000m individual title and WAC Men’s<br />

Track Co-Performer <strong>of</strong> the Meet honor.<br />

Junior Jeremy Klas defended his WAC pole vault throne with a leap <strong>of</strong> 17-1, and went on to earn U.S. Track<br />

& Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Honorable Mention All-America honors after qualifying<br />

for his second-consecutive NCAA Championship meet in the event.<br />

Senior Eugenio Mannucci earned his first indoor WAC gold<br />

in the shot put after hitting 59-0.25 to win that competition.<br />

He finished the season ranked 30th in the NCAA and won<br />

seven <strong>of</strong> his eight shot put competitions during the season.<br />

In all, <strong>Idaho</strong> men earned four first-team all-WAC honors and 13 second-team all-WAC<br />

awards. Five <strong>of</strong> those honors were given to freshmen and five more by sophomores.<br />

The Vandal women saw their newcomers come through with points and titles while a large<br />

group <strong>of</strong> regular scorers, including all-WAC honorees Lauren Schaffer, Erica Digby, Kelly<br />

Jacka, Ellen Rouse and Julia Veseth, took redshirt seasons. As a team, <strong>Idaho</strong> took eighth at the<br />

WAC Indoor Championships with a score <strong>of</strong> 44.<br />

The open slots allowed for new and young <strong>Vandals</strong> to step in and claim prominent roles at the WAC Championships. The best illustration<br />

<strong>of</strong> this was the women’s distance medley relay, which went from third to first on the final lap and claimed WAC gold with freshman Hannah<br />

Kiser, sophomores Keli Hall and Liga Velvere, and junior Anna Kalbrener.<br />

In addition to their relay gold, Kiser and Velvere added individual titles in the 3000m and 800m, respectively, to round out the team’s titles.<br />

Kiser was the only freshman at the meet to win two WAC titles, while Velvere was <strong>Idaho</strong>’s top scorer with<br />

13.25 points.<br />

Junior Gabby Midles earned first-team all-WAC honors in the 20-lb. weight throw for the second year in<br />

a row as she took third overall with a heave <strong>of</strong> 57-2.75. Another newcomer, sophomore Kristine Leonard,<br />

took sixth and earned second-team all-WAC honors in the shot put with a toss <strong>of</strong> 44-7.<br />

Two <strong>Vandals</strong> made history in 2011, and they both did so at the WSU Open II on Feb. 19. Klas cleared<br />

17-9 to break the meet record and <strong>Idaho</strong> school record in the pole vault. Shortly after, Velvere ran a<br />

converted time <strong>of</strong> 55.46 to break <strong>Idaho</strong>’s 11-year-old women’s record in<br />

the 400m. Klas’ mark was the fifth-best in the NCAA in 2011.<br />

Sophomore Barry Britt had a fantastic indoor season – but not in an<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong> uniform. The breakout cross country performer was selected<br />

to represent his home country <strong>of</strong> Canada at the North American,<br />

Central American and Caribbean Cross Country Championships, then<br />

the IAAF World Cross Country Championships, in the spring. As an<br />

unattached competitor, he ran an 8:07.89 in the 3000m at the Husky<br />

Classic on Feb. 12, which broke the New Brunswick provincial record<br />

and was faster than the <strong>Idaho</strong> school record in the event.<br />

In addition to their athletic achievements, <strong>Idaho</strong>’s 2011 squad took care <strong>of</strong> classroom business, too. A total<br />

<strong>of</strong> 33 <strong>Vandals</strong> were honored with WAC All-Academic awards, 18 men and 15 women. Klas also claimed<br />

a Capital One Second Team Academic All-District VIII honor, as well as a USTFCCCA Division I All-<br />

Academic honor for his indoor exploits.<br />

2010-11 <strong>Idaho</strong> Cross Country/Track & Field Yearbook<br />

2011 Men’s Outdoor Season in Review<br />

Vandal men’s outdoor track and field put together another solid outdoor season in 2011. The<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong> men made history on multiple levels and brought in yet another All-America honor, four<br />

NCAA qualifiers, five Western Athletic Conference individual titles and one school record.<br />

Senior Eugenio Mannucci put a cap on an outstanding <strong>Idaho</strong> career with his third WAC shot<br />

put title, second NCAA Championships bid and his first U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country<br />

Coaches Association Second-Team All-America accolade.<br />

Fellow senior Lucas Pope nabbed his fifth career gold medal at the WAC Outdoor<br />

Championships in May, and in the process, took the<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong> outdoor school record with a vault <strong>of</strong> 17-3. That<br />

mark made him an NCAA qualifier for the first time in<br />

his career, and also clinched his undefeated head-to-head<br />

record against non-<strong>Idaho</strong> WAC vaulters. Teammate Jeremy Klas is the only WAC athlete to best Pope<br />

head-to-head in his <strong>Idaho</strong> career.<br />

Junior Andrew Blaser made a remarkable comeback from a back injury sustained in a 2010 car accident<br />

and did even better than just returning to his original form. The Vandal decathlete added more than 1,000<br />

points to his career-best score and hit personal-best marks in nine <strong>of</strong> the 10 decathlon disciplines during<br />

the season. He claimed decathlon gold with a career-best score <strong>of</strong> 7,037 at the WAC Championships, then<br />

earned three-more all-WAC honors in the 110m hurdles, high jump and pole vault, and led all <strong>Idaho</strong> men<br />

with 22.33 points scored.<br />

Junior Barry Britt put together some <strong>of</strong> the best distance races ever by a Vandal in 2011, and made history<br />

as the first <strong>Idaho</strong> man to take double golds in the 5000m and 10,000m. The Canadian’s 30:24.99 at the<br />

WAC Championships is the fifth-best 10,000m in <strong>Idaho</strong> history and is a New Brunswick provincial record.<br />

His 14:08.90 in the 5000m earlier in the season is the second-fastest ever by a Vandal.<br />

There were also plenty <strong>of</strong> fresh faces who made themselves known on the men’s side. Redshirt freshman<br />

Kyle Rothwell earned one first-team and one second-team all-WAC honor, as he took third in the hammer<br />

and sixth in the discus. Fellow redshirt frosh Andrey Levkiv was a second-team honoree after a sixth-place<br />

shot put finish. Junior Mike Marshall, a junior-college transfer, took fourth in the javelin throw for secondteam<br />

all-WAC honors, and moved into ninth all-time at <strong>Idaho</strong> in the event with a season-best <strong>of</strong> 202-6.<br />

Seniors Mike Carpenter and Sam Michener, both <strong>of</strong> whom leave <strong>Idaho</strong> as WAC champions and multipletime<br />

first-team all-WAC honorees, finished their careers in 2011. They were both members <strong>of</strong> <strong>Idaho</strong>’s 2009<br />

WAC champion and NCAA regionally-qualifying 4x100m relay team, while Carpenter was a 10-time firstteam<br />

all-WAC performer and Michener is a two-time first-teamer and four-time second-team honoree.<br />

Carpenter battled a leg injury during the year, but still scored for <strong>Idaho</strong> in the 4x400m relay. He will go<br />

down as the first Vandal man to clear 17 feet in the pole vault. He was a two-time WAC runner-up in the<br />

indoor heptathlon and a seven-time first-team all-WAC honoree between the indoor and outdoor pole<br />

vault, as well as a former school record holder in both.<br />

Michener led <strong>of</strong>f <strong>Idaho</strong>’s 2009 title-winning 4x100m relay, then took<br />

third in the 100m at the 2010 WAC Championships. He was a 2010<br />

NCAA qualifier, but after running a career-best 10.59 in the event in 2011, missed a second-straight NCAA<br />

bid by a mere three one-hundredths <strong>of</strong> a second.<br />

As a team, <strong>Idaho</strong> sent Blaser, Britt, Mannucci and Pope to the NCAA West Preliminary Round. Mannucci’s<br />

ninth-place finish in the shot put made him the fifth man in <strong>Idaho</strong> history to earn back-to-back NCAA<br />

Championships bids, and his 15th overall finish at the meet gave him his first career All-America honor.<br />

In the classroom, the Vandal men were also a successful group. <strong>Idaho</strong> men claimed 16 WAC All-Academic<br />

honors in the Spring. Junior Jeremiah Dubie, junior Markus Geiger and Mannucci earned Capital One Second-<br />

Team Academic All-District VIII honors for the outdoor season, while Mannucci was also recognized as the<br />

<strong>University</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Idaho</strong> College <strong>of</strong> Agriculture and Life Sciences Pre-Veterinary Senior <strong>of</strong> the Year.<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong>’s women were young and inexperienced in 2011, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t<br />

successful. After graduating one <strong>of</strong> the best senior classes in Vandal history last season,<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong>’s women needed to re-tool and reload, and that’s exactly what they did.<br />

Five Vandal women were NCAA qualifiers, four won Western Athletic Conference titles,<br />

seven earned first-team all-WAC and eight earned second-team honors. There were also<br />

two school records, one WAC record and 16 entries into the <strong>Idaho</strong> all-time top-10 – and<br />

not a single senior among them.<br />

Alycia Butterworth (3000m steeplechase) and Hannah Kiser (5000m) made history<br />

as <strong>Idaho</strong>’s first female freshman NCAA qualifiers. That pair, along with Holly Stanton,<br />

formed a group <strong>of</strong> three Vandal freshmen to crack the <strong>Idaho</strong> record books. Another firstyear<br />

Vandal, Emily Paradis, was a WAC scorer in her very first year.<br />

A pair <strong>of</strong> first-year Vandal sophomores also jumped into the record books and scored well for <strong>Idaho</strong>. Liga Velvere jumped into the <strong>Idaho</strong><br />

record book in the 400m, 800m, 400m hurdles and 4x400m relay. She was an NCAA qualifier and WAC champion in the 400m hurdles.<br />

Leonard earned second-team all-WAC honors in the shot put with a fourth-place finish. Her bests <strong>of</strong> 157-10 in the discus and 46-2.75 in<br />

the shot put move her to sixth and eighth, respectively, in the <strong>Idaho</strong> record books.<br />

Redshirt sophomore Keli Hall missed 2010 with injury, but came back strongly this season. She earned her first career outdoor first-team<br />

all-WAC honor with a third-place finish in the 800m and improved her career-best in the event by five<br />

full seconds during the season.<br />

Junior Lauren Schaffer stepped into the elite class in her specialty event in 2011. She defended her<br />

outdoor WAC title in the 800m with a 2:04.53, the fastest time in <strong>Idaho</strong> history and WAC Outdoor<br />

Championship history. She advanced to the NCAA quarterfinal round in the event and finished the<br />

year with the nation’s 10th-fastest time.<br />

Junior Gabby Midles was <strong>Idaho</strong>’s other record-breaker during the year. She bested her own top mark in<br />

the women’s hammer throw with a toss <strong>of</strong> 194-6 at the Sam Adams Classic on Apr. 2 and claimed her<br />

second-consecutive WAC hammer crown with a 192-11 at the WAC Championships. She was also an<br />

NCAA qualifier in the hammer for a second year in a row.<br />

Anna Kalbrener, another Vandal junior, rounded out the team’s 2011 first-team all-WAC honorees after<br />

her third-place finish in the women’s 1500m. Fellow third-year Vandal Julia Veseth was a double scorer<br />

in the women’s 5000m and 10,000m, with fourth-place finishes in each.<br />

As bright as 2011 was for <strong>Idaho</strong>, the future may be even brighter, since the team lost no athletes to<br />

graduation this season. The two seniors on the Vandal roster, second-team all-WAC honorees Erica Digby and Maggie Miller, redshirted<br />

the outdoor season, as did 2010 four-time all-WAC honoree, sophomore Kelly Jacka, and two-time second-team all-WAC pick, junior Ellen<br />

Rouse.<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong> women made historical entries in 11 events in 2011, ranging from the 400m to the hammer<br />

throw. Velvere held top honors with four entries, but Schaffer made three (400m, 800m, 4x400m), Kiser<br />

(1500m, 5000m) and Leonard (shot put, discus)<br />

made two each, and Kalbrener, Hall, Veseth,<br />

Butterworth, Stanton, Midles, sophomore Karlene<br />

Hurrel and sophomore Sarah Nutsch each made<br />

one entry.<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong>’s women maintained their strong academic<br />

presence with 18 total WAC All-Academic honors.<br />

Five Vandal women, Laurel Draper, Ali Middleton,<br />

Emma Goode, Kiser and Ailene MacPherson,<br />

finished the season with 4.0 cumulative gradepoint<br />

averages.<br />

The 2011 season marked Wayne Phipps’ first season as <strong>Idaho</strong>’s Director <strong>of</strong> Track & Field/Cross Country and his 16th overall year with the program. He served as cohead<br />

coach from 2000-09 and was an assistant before that from 1995-99. In his time at <strong>Idaho</strong>, he has been honored six times as a conference coach <strong>of</strong> the year and has<br />

led the <strong>Vandals</strong> to eight total conference titles. Since 2000, Phipps has overseen an <strong>Idaho</strong> track and field/cross country program that has produced four individual<br />

cross country champions, 33 indoor track and field champions and 92 outdoor champions. <strong>Vandals</strong> have claimed 15 conference athlete <strong>of</strong> the year awards, broken 12<br />

conference records and qualified for the NCAA Championships 76 times. Since 2000, Vandal athletes have broken 26 indoor school records and 23 outdoor records,<br />

and at least one school record has fallen every year at <strong>Idaho</strong> during his tenure. Additionally, <strong>Idaho</strong> has a very strong academic reputation as regular honorees among<br />

the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Division I All-Academic Teams in both men’s and women’s cross country and track and field. Since<br />

2005, three <strong>Idaho</strong> track and field athletes have earned the Western Athletic Conference’s prestigious Stan Bates Award as the top male or female student-athlete in<br />

the conference, and the team’s athletes have been recognized with a combined 345 WAC All-Academic honors.<br />

Success is a staple under Phipps, and it began with his very first year at the position, when, in 2000, the Vandal men won the Big West title and Phipps was honored<br />

as 2000 Big West Men’s Track and Field Coach <strong>of</strong> the Year. In 2001, both the men and women won Big West titles and Phipps was chosen Big West Men’s Track and<br />

Field Coach <strong>of</strong> the Year once again. In each <strong>of</strong> his first three years at <strong>Idaho</strong>, the men’s team finished in the top 30 in the nation both indoors and outdoors to make<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong> one <strong>of</strong> only nine schools in the nation to do so. Phipps’ success wasn’t limited to track and field, as he also led the Vandal women to a 2002 Big West Cross<br />

Country title and earned Big West Cross Country Coach <strong>of</strong> the Year honors. In 2003, the women’s track and field team took home the Big West title.<br />

Phipps led the <strong>Vandals</strong> to uncharted territory in 2004 when the women’s cross country team<br />

qualified for the NCAA Championships for the first time in the program’s history and finished<br />

25th overall. The 2005 cross country season saw even more success, as the women’s team took<br />

home the <strong>University</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Idaho</strong>’s first Western Athletic Conference title. Four Vandal runners<br />

finished in the top five and Dee Olson earned the individual title, as well as WAC Athlete <strong>of</strong> the<br />

Year and Phipps earned his fourth career Coach <strong>of</strong> the Year honor. In 2006, the second straight<br />

Phipps-coached athlete won the WAC as freshman Rhea Richter took home the women’s cross<br />

country individual title. In 2007, Phipps led the women to their second cross country title in three<br />

years as four runners finished in the top 10. In 2008, he coached yet another WAC Champion, as<br />

Allix Lee-Painter won the women’s cross country title and the women finished second as a team.<br />

In 2010, <strong>Idaho</strong> claimed its third WAC title in five years, as the team put five runners in the top 15<br />

to claim the crown. Making that title especially sweet was the fact that it was held in Moscow, and<br />

was <strong>Idaho</strong>’s first time hosting a WAC Championship event.<br />

He currently coaches Olympian and assistant coach Angela Whyte and has coached two-time<br />

Olympian and World Championship finalist Tawanda Chiwira, NCAA All-American and worldranked<br />

hurdler Arend Watkins, and Olympian Sherwin James.<br />

Phipps began his coaching career in his hometown <strong>of</strong> Prince George, British Columbia, with<br />

the Prince George Track and Field Club. During that time, he coached several provincial and<br />

national medalists and champions. As an athlete, Phipps was a three-year letterwinner in<br />

basketball and a four-year letterwinner in track and cross country at D.P. Todd Secondary. He<br />

also competed for the Prince George Track and Field Club, where he was coached by his father,<br />

Ron, and was a provincial champion and medalist in events ranging from the 100m to the 1500m<br />

and cross country. He also competed in both the cross country and track and field national<br />

championships in Canada. Phipps competed for the <strong>University</strong> <strong>of</strong> Montana and the <strong>University</strong> <strong>of</strong><br />

British Columbia, where he graduated with a degree in exercise science in 1991. Phipps earned<br />

his master’s <strong>of</strong> science from the <strong>University</strong> <strong>of</strong> Oregon in exercise and movement science, with a<br />

sports medicine major and minors in biomechanics and exercise physiology.<br />

Julie Taylor<br />

Head Track & Field Coach<br />

Julie Taylor was promoted to Head Track & Field Coach at <strong>Idaho</strong> after serving 20 years as an assistant coach with the program. She has led the<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong> throws program to unprecedented levels <strong>of</strong> success in her two decades <strong>of</strong> coaching. When she graduated from <strong>Idaho</strong> in 1986, Taylor<br />

held both <strong>Idaho</strong> outdoor school records in the shot put and discus. Since that time, her athletes have broken and re-broken every <strong>Idaho</strong> throws<br />

record. Taylor saw her name <strong>of</strong>ficially bumped out <strong>of</strong> the <strong>Idaho</strong> record book in 2011, but she still holds an incredible distinction in <strong>Idaho</strong>’s<br />

history. She coached every single athlete who has made an entry in <strong>Idaho</strong>’s all-time top-10 in the women’s shot put, discus, hammer throw and<br />

javelin throw.<br />

Since Taylor became throws coach at <strong>Idaho</strong>, Vandal throws have qualified for the NCAA Championships 46 times and won two NCAA titles, 19<br />

Western Athletic Conference titles, eight Big West Conference titles, nine Big Sky Conference titles and have claimed 27 All-America honors.<br />

At least one school record in the throws has fallen at <strong>Idaho</strong> every year since 2004.<br />

In the 2008 outdoor season, <strong>Idaho</strong> was the only men’s NCAA program to have four men hit the 200-foot mark in the hammer throw. On April<br />

26, 2008, Taylor’s group <strong>of</strong> Marcus Mattox (208-2), James Rogan (203-2), Matt Wauters (203-1) and Russ Winger (202-3) all achieved the feat<br />

in one competition over the span <strong>of</strong> a couple hours.<br />

Taylor’s top men’s pupil is Winger, who goes down as one <strong>of</strong> the most versatile<br />

collegiate throwers ever. He is just the second man in NCAA history to hit 65 feet<br />

in both the shot put and weight throw in the same indoor season, and he achieved<br />

the feat in both 2007 and 2008. Dan Taylor <strong>of</strong> Ohio State is the only other man to<br />

hit that double. Additionally in 2008, Winger was the only man to qualify for the<br />

NCAA Outdoor Championships in the shot put, discus throw and hammer throw<br />

(he scratched from the hammer to focus on his two primary events).<br />

Taylor also coached the first and only individual NCAA champion in <strong>Idaho</strong> athletics<br />

history in Katja Schreiber, who won the 2001 national title in the women’s discus with<br />

a school-record heave <strong>of</strong> 197-11.<br />

As a standout thrower for the <strong>Vandals</strong> from 1983-86, Taylor broke both the shot<br />

put and discus school records and earned three All-Big Sky Conference honors. She<br />

scored points at every Big Sky meet during her career and still ranks 31st in <strong>Idaho</strong><br />

history in all-time outdoor conference scoring at 28 points.<br />

She is married to another all-time great Vandal thrower, Tim Taylor, who is a<br />

volunteer assistant throws coach at <strong>Idaho</strong>. They have one son, Alex, who is a thrower<br />

at Community Colleges <strong>of</strong> Spokane, and one daughter, Kelsey, who was an all-<br />

Western Athletic Conference performer for the <strong>Idaho</strong> volleyball team from 2007-10.<br />

Jason Graham<br />

Assistant Coach<br />

2010-11 <strong>Idaho</strong> Cross Country/Track & Field Yearbook<br />

Pole Vault ■ Jumps ■ Multi-Events<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong>, ‘94<br />

Jason Graham was hired as assistant track and field coach in 2011 after 14 years as a volunteer assistant at <strong>Idaho</strong>. While as a<br />

volunteer coach, Graham worked primarily with the pole vaulters, as well as jumpers and multi-athletes. He helped build <strong>Idaho</strong>’s<br />

vaults program into one <strong>of</strong> the nation’s best over the last six seasons. Since 2005, Graham’s vaulters have claimed 17 individual<br />

Western Athletic Conference titles, including the last four consecutive indoor and outdoor men’s crowns.<br />

On the women’s side, he coached the first 12-foot, 13-foot and 14-foot vaulter in Vandal history, Melinda Owen. Undefeated headto-head<br />

versus WAC competition for her career, Owen claimed a record six WAC pole vault titles and walked away with the WAC’s<br />

all-time outdoor record in the vault at 14-5¼, which was also the best mark in the nation in 2008. After her graduation in 2008,<br />

Owen was invited to the USA Track & Field Olympic Training Center, where she is training for the 2010 London Olympic Games.<br />

Following Owen was K.C. Dahlgren, a 2009 indoor All-American, two-time NCAA qualifier and three-time WAC champion who<br />

left the school ranked second all-time in the vault.<br />

Graham’s men’s vaulters have also taken the program to new heights. Mike Carpenter became the first Vandal to crack the 17-foot<br />

barrier outdoors in 2008, then was followed by Jeremy Klas in 2010 and Lucas<br />

Pope in 2011. Pope and Klas became the first two <strong>Vandals</strong> to break 17 feet<br />

indoors in 2010, and Klas became <strong>Idaho</strong>’s first and only NCAA qualifier and<br />

All-American in the indoor pole vault the same year. Pope, who graduated<br />

in 2011 with five career WAC titles and <strong>Idaho</strong>’s outdoor school record (17-3)<br />

in his possession, was never beaten head-to-head by a non-<strong>Idaho</strong> WAC pole<br />

vaulter. Klas, who owns three career WAC golds and has qualified for three<br />

NCAA Championship meets, is <strong>Idaho</strong>’s indoor school record holder (17-9)<br />

and is the only man in <strong>Idaho</strong> history to qualify for back-to-back NCAA meets<br />

in the vault.<br />

Graham has been a Vandal since 1988 when he came to <strong>Idaho</strong> as a studentathlete.<br />

He competed in the hurdles and the decathlon for <strong>Idaho</strong> and earned<br />

three Big Sky All-Academic honors from 1988-92.<br />

Graham earned his B.S. in Secondary Mathematics and Physics Education<br />

from <strong>Idaho</strong> in 1994 and his M.S. in Secondary Science and Technology<br />

Education from <strong>Idaho</strong> in 1997. His wife’s name is Aimee.<br />

She put together a legendary performance at the 2010 WAC Outdoor<br />

Championships, as she scored 30 points by winning the 3000m steeplechase,<br />

5000m and 10,000m at the meet. It was just the third such triple crown in<br />

NCAA history and the first in WAC history.<br />

She is the only woman in WAC history to be named WAC Athlete <strong>of</strong> the Year<br />

in three different sports. She was the 2008 WAC Women’s Cross Country<br />

Athlete <strong>of</strong> the Year, 2009 WAC Women’s Indoor Track Performer <strong>of</strong> the Year<br />

and 2010 WAC Outdoor Women’s Track Performer <strong>of</strong> the Year, as well as the<br />

2010 WAC Women’s High Point Award honoree.<br />

Potratz-Lee graduated from <strong>Idaho</strong> in 2010 with a degree in Secondary<br />

Education. Formerly Allix Lee-Painter, she married former <strong>Idaho</strong> track and<br />

field athlete Steve Potratz in 2010.<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong>, ‘03<br />

Whyte’s athletic résumé is very impressive. At <strong>Idaho</strong>, Whyte’s name is etched in 13<br />

school records and she is <strong>Idaho</strong>’s all-time top scorer with 81.5 career points at outdoor<br />

conference meets. Whyte also spent two seasons at the <strong>University</strong> <strong>of</strong> New Mexico and<br />

left a lasting impression with five school records and All-Mountain West Conference<br />

honors in the 100m hurdles in 2000.<br />

Whyte’s athletic career hasn’t slowed down after college. Since graduating, Whyte has<br />

made herself known on the international track and field stage. She has represented<br />

Canada in the Olympic Games twice in 2004 and 2008. In her first Olympics appearance<br />

in 2004, she finished sixth overall in the 100m hurdles. Whyte has consistently ranked<br />

among the world’s top 100m hurdlers. She is one <strong>of</strong> just two women in the world<br />

to qualify for the IAAF World Championships in the 100m hurdles every year since<br />

2001.<br />

Whyte is a 2003 graduate <strong>of</strong> the <strong>University</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Idaho</strong> with a degree in Crime and Justice<br />

Studies. She is a Class <strong>of</strong> 2010 inductee into the Vandal <strong>Athletics</strong> Hall <strong>of</strong> Fame.<br />
