Texas State will be competing in its final season in the Southland Conference in 2011-12.
This fall, the football team begins a new chapter in its history as Dennis Franchione returns as head coach. All-American offensive lineman D.J. Hall and All-Southland Conference defensive back Darryl Morris are among the top returning players, and Franchione inherits a team that beat two nationally ranked teams last season.
Volleyball coach Karen Chisum posted her 700th career victory in 2010 and the Bobcats won 10 Southland Conference games for the eighth consecutive year with a 12-4 league record. Texas State finished 19-12 overall. A.J. Wallington, Amari Deardorff and Amber Calhoun were named to the All-SLC teams.
The women’s soccer team featured All-Central Region forward Brittney Curry, who also was named an All-SLC selection along with Kelsey Bernard, Anna Fagan and Lauren Frazier. The team finished with a 12-8-1 record. Curry, Bernard, Jessica Elting and Alissa Scott were on SLC all-academic team.
In cross country, Stephanie Armstrong earned All-Southland Conference honors for the women’s team.
The men’s basketball team enjoyed its best season under head coach Doug Davalos as the Bobcats tied for the second-best conference record, at 10-6. The Bobcats were 8-0 in home conference games for the third time in school history and the first time since 1996-97. Senior Tony Bishop earned all-SLC honors and Senior Jonathan Sloan was a 2011 Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-District selection. Sloan and White were named to the SLC all-academic team.
The women’s basketball team will begin a new era this year as Zenarae Antoine becomes the eighth coach in the program’s history. She succeeds Suzanne Fox, who retired with 174 victories. The Bobcats were one of 33 NCAA Division I teams and the top team in the conference in the “Pack the House” challenge with 2,516 fans in attendance on Dec. 7, 2010. Anna Brzozowski was named to the SLC all-academic team during her final season at Texas State.
There were 65 Bobcats named to the Southland Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll in the fall 2010 semester, and 56 Texas State student-athletes earned bachelor’s degrees.
In the spring, baseball coach Ty Harrington earned his 400th career victory, and the Bobcats were ranked in the national top 25. The softball team continued to be one of the dominant members of the conference.
Elana Horn won the women’s pole vault for the second straight year at the SLC indoor championships after setting a conference indoor record during the regular season.
During the outdoor season, Katherine Evans set a Texas State heptathlon record at Rice to earn SLC athlete of the week honors. Head track and field coach Galina Bukharina announced her retirement after serving 20 years on Texas State’s coaching staff.
Mariana Perez was all-conference in women’s tennis as the Bobcats won 11 games during the regular season and finished fourth in the SLC with a lineup of three sophomores and three freshmen.
Texas State also honored 102 student-athletes who posted a grade point average of 3.5 or higher in one or both spring and fall semesters in 2010. That included 28 Bobcats who had a 4.0 during the same time span.
Dear Bobcats,
Welcome to “Bobcat Country!” You are part of a time of great opportunity here at Texas State in the next few years. You will be attending a vibrant university that is truly the “Rising Star” in Texas and the nation.
As the head football coach, let me personally invite you to join us on game days at Jim Wacker Field at Bobcat Stadium. Our football program is also rising, as we make a move to the Football Bowl Subdivision and the Western Athletic Conference. Our student body support on game day is so important. We want you to be a part of the game-day atmosphere, tailgating and victory celebrations. The home field is an advantage for our team when the stadium is rocking — a sea of maroon and gold. To hear one side of the stadium yell “Texas” and the other side yell “State” is awesome.
Speaking for our players, I know that they really appreciate your support and they feel a responsibility to represent you and Texas State in a classy manner.
All you need is your ID to get into games, so come get loud, get involved,
and help us in our move to the Western Athletic Conference.
Coach Fran
