In total, UT Tyler competed in 328 games, meets and tournaments from Sept. 1, 2015 to May 30, 2016 when the softball team swept No. 11 Messiah College with a pair of 3-0 and 7-0 wins to earn the 2016 NCAA DIII National Championship just two days before Whitney Simmons unleashed a 59.13 mark to win the NCAA DIII National Championship in the hammer throw. The Patriot team sports amassed a staggering 210-68-5 record throughout the year while there were eight cross country meets won and eight golf tournament titles. Along the way, UT Tyler student-athletes gained national notoriety with Simmons earning a pair of all-American honors with superior performances at the NCAA DIII Indoor and Outdoor Championships, while Morgan Monzingo (women’s soccer), Chestley Strother (women’s soccer), Michelle Obach (women’s basketball), Stephanie Tutt (women’s golf), Laura Lindsey (women’s golf), Raven Rodriguez (softball) and Kelsie Batten (softball) securing all-America status. Batten and Lindsey became the first two student-athletes in UT Tyler history to earn all-America honors in all four years with Batten closing out her career with an ASC record of 118 wins and being named the National Softball Player of the Year. Simmons, who will return for her senior season next year, has already secured five all-America honors in her career.

UT Tyler won ASC team titles in men’s and women’s cross country, women’s basketball, men’s track & field, men’s and women’s tennis, women’s golf and baseball while individual championships were won by Morgan Loth (golf), Simmons (field), Brittany Brunson (track, cross country), Krista Painter (track), Conner Benson (track), Keiundas Wade (field), Matt Godwin (field), Aaron Hurd (track), Miles Zeolrlin (track), Ali Yazdanshenas (field) and Matthew Markert (cross country).

Coined, and proven, as Champions Territory, the UT Tyler campus hosted a total of 176 events throughout the year which includes nine postseason tournaments and 37 neutral-site contests. The Patriots were an astonishing 119-18-2 in team sports at home, while the men’s and women’s cross country teams won ASC titles on their home course and the women’s basketball team won the ASC Championship on the Herrington Patriot Center court. The basketball team, which ran through the ASC with a 15-0 record and had a program-record 22-game winning streak, also hosted the regional tournament and advanced to the Sweet 16 with an 80-58 win over Claremont-Mudd-Scripps in their final home game of the year.

Home domination was highlighted by the women’s basketball team which went 16-0 on its home court and finished the season with a program-best 30-2 record and the first trip to the Elite 8 in program history after earning an 81-77 overtime win over No. 2 George Fox in the Sweet 16. The men’s soccer team was 8-0-2 at home and won the ASC regular-season championship, while the women’s soccer team went 11-0 at home and secured the program’s first-ever ASC regular-season championship and finished the year at 17-1-2 and its second straight trip to the NCAA tournament. The Patriot softball team was 22-2 at home, including five NCAA tournament wins at Suddenlink Field en route to a 49-5 overall record and the national championship. The final game played at home came with the Patriots dogpiling after earning a 2-0 win over Linfield to win the NCAA DIII Tyler Super Regional. The men’s and women’s golf teams both won their home tournament in the fall and would advance to the national tournament, while the men’s basketball team was 8-3 at home and volleyball went 6-4 in a season where they would go 20-12 and advance to the postseason.

The women’s golf team won six of 10 tournaments that it played in throughout the year and would finish as the national runner-up for the second time in program history at the NCAA DIII National Championship on May 12. The team, which included four-time all-America selection Laura Lindsey, was led at the national tournament by Stephanie Tutt who finished fifth and earned all-America honors in her sophomore season after also winning the UT Tyler Al Jones Memorial Invitational in the fall. Morgan Loth won the ASC individual championship in mid-April to lead the Patriots to their third straight conference title, while the men’s and women’s tennis teams both won their third straight ASC title. The men would clinch their eighth title in program history on the Texas Dallas courts, while the women’s team won its eighth ASC championship on its home court to compete a year where it went 15-0 at home.

The baseball team won its second straight ASC Championship and fifth in program history after rolling through the ASC tournament as the fourth seed, culminating in a 5-2 finals win over Hardin-Simmons on May 14 on the Cowboys’ home field. UT Tyler would earn a 4-3 win over No. 14 Cal Lutheran and a 6-4 victory over No. 18 Whitworth in the Spokane Regional before seeing their magical postseason run end. The men’s golf program advanced to its fifth straight NCAA DIII national tournament after earning an at-large bid and securing all-region selections from seniors Buddy Hallman and Alex Trivanovich - who finished tied for fourth at the ASC tournament.

Simmons was named the region’s Field Athlete of the Year after winning nine meets in the hammer throw, culminating with a personal record and national championship throw of 59.13 meters in Waverly, Iowa. Simmons also won the Marc Randle Classic, War Hawk Classic, Trinity Open, SFA Carl Knight Invitational, East Texas Invite, ASC Championship, Longhorn Invitational, North Central College Dr. Keeler Invitational and before the NCAA DIII National Championship. The softball team’s national championship season included a program-record 33-game winning streak and 27 shutouts. Led by a cast of seven seniors who went 187-22 over their four years in Tyler, the Patriots outscored their opponents by a 362-59 margin throughout the 2016 season.

UT Tyler’s long list of success also includes securing six regular-season ASC championships in men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s tennis, women’s basketball and softball. Development of the programs doesn’t just happen and leadership was rewarded with Dr. Howard Patterson being named the Under Armour DIII Athletics Director of the Year, Chris Bizot earning ASC Men’s Tennis Coach of the Year, Kendra Hassell being recognized as the D3hoops.com South Region Coach of the Year and ASC Coach of the Year, Bob Hepler earning ASC Men’s Track & Field and Cross Country Coach of the Year honors, Grant Spencer securing ASC Women’s Golf and Cross Country Coach of the Year, Kenny Jones winning ASC Men’s Soccer Coach of the Year and Stefani Webb earning NSCAA West Region and ASC Coach of the Year honors. Mike Reed, who led the UT Tyler softball team to the NCAA DIII Championship, was named the ASC Coach of the Year and then the NFCA National Coaching Staff of the Year.

Historically speaking, UT Tyler has eight national championships on its resume, 139 ASC titles and 127 all-Americans. Not a single program had a losing season in 2015-16 and we’re already looking forward to more success in 2016-17 season.

Below are quotes from UT Tyler head coaches reflecting on last season and looking ahead to next year’s potential.

UT TYLER COACH QUOTES

Mike Reed – Softball (Entering 13th season)
“I will never forget the joy on the faces of the players when they made that last out to win a national championship. To see them get validation for all their hard work was what every coach wishes for their team. This team showed so much growth from the beginning to to end. We started the season with the number 1ranking and all the pressure that comes with that. We didn't play well early but the team continued to work and come together as a group and not individuals.  Winning the NFCA lead-off Classic was when we really saw how special this team could be. Their growth on then field came from their growth as a team. Our program goals and expectations have been the same for several years and will not change for next year. I think most people will focus on the terrific seniors that graduated this year and not give enough credit to the group we have coming back. I am excited the 16-17 to start its journey.”

Grant Spencer – Women’s Golf & Cross Country (Entering 4th season)
“I am most proud of the determination of our mostly new lineup to want to continue the high level of play that we have had over the last few years.  My lasting memory will be having four girls winning individual tournaments including a conference champion. Our team did develop from some poor play in our first tournament of the year to a strong national contender by year’s end. Each individual player made personal advancements in their games over the year for this to happen. I would define our program as one of the best all around women’s golf programs in the country.  Each new year I look forward to getting to know the new players and challenging every player to keep improving.” 

Kendra Hassell – Women’s Basketball (Entering 2nd season)
“I am extremely proud of how quickly our team adjusted to a new system. They were very coachable and did a great job of working together to create chemistry and unity on and off the court. I am also proud of the mental toughness and maturity our team showed throughout the season. The way they fought to overcome adversity against George Fox in the Sweet 16 will be a lasting memory for me. Our team demonstrated immense growth from the start of the season to the end. The players continued to improve individually, but the team also developed more chemistry and eventually recognized their ability to play at a fast pace. We have a team that is highly motivated and they brought a great work ethic and competitiveness to practice each day. It was this consistent effort that helped us to play our best basketball at the end of the season. We have a very experienced group that is hungry and driven. I’m looking forward to seeing how they bounce back after a disappointing loss in the Elite 8. I know they have high expectations and it will be exciting to see what we are able to accomplish with this group next season.”

Kenny Jones – Men’s Soccer (Entering 15th season)
“I was most proud of our returners for really investing in the new players and helping them with their transition and understand the standards of our program.  They had a plan and executed it very well with all of the younger guys.  It definitely helped get us on the same page early in the year and propelled us to the end. I would say we are healthy.  By that I mean our culture is good.  Our guys have done a great job with upholding and enhancing our standards on and off the field. The guys really work at living out our core values and mission statement. We have strong team chemistry and our team leadership amongst the players is great.  I am looking forward to seeing our returners continue to grow and mature into manhood and influence all the incoming players in a positive and winner’s way.”

Stefani Webb – Women’s Soccer (Entering 12th season)
“I am most proud of our 2015-2016 season not just because we were so successful on the field, losing one game on the year and tying the second place team in the country twice, but more for the family we became.  This was a special group of young women that competed so hard for each other and really set a new bar for the program both on and off the field. This team really had a tremendous run all year.  We were undefeated until the last week of the season and just kept finding new ways to win throughout the season.  The team truly bought into the process of becoming great and worked every single day to get better and that truly was a key to our success. We know we graduated a lot of talent and the ASC keeps getting better and better.  Looking across the conference, it is going to be an extremely tight race all year this year.  I am excited for our newcomers and the passion they have to be here and I was so impressed with our returning players and the work they put in this spring. We combine a great wealth of young talent with a group that is hungry.” 

Bob Hepler – Cross Country/Track & Field (Entering 12th season)
“The 2015-16 track season will be remembered as the year of Whitney Simmons. The junior five time All American brought home the program's second NCAA individual championship by winning the hammer throw with the sixth longest throw in NCAA D3 history.  Her hard work combined with the passionate coaching of Chris Stonestreet, otherwise known as the best coach in the USA, lead to the victory.  The season also saw the men's team win its fourth straight ASC title with the women’s team finishing second. The team was lead by a slew of all conference athletes in Rebekah Groth, Brittany Brunson, Krista Painter, Whitney Simmons and Holly Nohavitza. The 2016-17 season promises to be even more successful as a strong incoming class combined with a ton of top returners should lead to an even more impressive year.” 

Craig McConnell – Men’s Golf (2014-16)
“We had some great performances throughout the year claiming a couple of tiles and posting the fourth best scoring average in school history. Every guy on the roster competed in the lineup for at least an event, which shows the depth our program has from top to bottom.” 

Jamon Copeland – Men’s Basketball (Entering 4th season)
“I am proud of how we protected our home court throughout the season, beating a nationally ranked opponent for the first time in program history.  My lasting memory from this past season is going to be all of the relationships that were formed throughout the year. Our growth as a team last season was attributed to our players’ ability to focus on the process of becoming the best version of themselves daily. We are a program that is hungry to do something that has never been done in program history (win a conference championship). Every season is a new journey in and of itself.  I am really looking forward to going on this journey with some great young men.”

Lyndsay Mashe – Volleyball (Entering 1st season)
“I was happy with how spring practice went. Our kids worked hard to get better and I think we accomplished a lot during that time. I am extremely excited about our incoming class and look forward to doing great things next season.”
