Messages from Peru State
Message from the President
                     Dear Bobcat Fans,
                        At Peru State College, education is about more than just books, classes and
                     studying. It involves a journey of personal growth that students begin the first day they
                     set foot on campus and continues until they cross the stage to accept their diploma.
                     Perhaps the greatest development a student experiences during that journey is that of
                     personal character.
                        Peru State College subscribes to the NAIA Champions of Character Program,
                     which creates an environment in which every NAIA student-athlete, coach, official
                     and spectator is committed to the true spirit of competition through respect, integrity,
                     responsibility, servant leadership and sportsmanship. That means Bobcat athletes
                     are scholars who contribute to the betterment of their college, community, charitable
                     causes and their fellow students.
                        Yes, winning games is important. But the most important aspect of Bobcat
                     athletics is our commitment to the enrichment and growth of our students.
                        I know you join me in looking forward to a winning year for all of our Bobcat teams.
                     Go Bobcats!

                  prepare PSC Student Athletes to excel, both academically and athletically, while

Bert Swenson Award
The Bert Swenson Award was first presented in 1925. Winners are selected on the basis of character, personality,
scholarship, loyalty to school traditions and participation in athletics. In the beginning, candidates were required to have
lettered in two different sports. In later years, when sports became more specialized, the award was presented to the
outstanding male and female athletes of the year.

Season Preview
  The 2008 – 2009 women’s basketball season looks to be a fun and exciting one for the Lady Bobcats. The Peru State
women’s basketball team will consist of some familiar faces and a lot of new ones. Some familiar faces include Alyssa Mangum,
Emma Pedro, Brianna Triplett and P.J. Miller. An indicator of how much this team has changed this season, Alyssa played post
last season and is a perimeter player this season.

   With only four players returning from last year and only three of them with experience, the new players, consisting of three
transfer students and three freshmen, will be counted on to mature early. The young Bobcats team will have a little more size
and athleticism as well as individuals that play with intensity. In addition, there will be several players that can handle multiple
positions on the floor. The freshmen and sophomores will need to mature and adjust to the college game rapidly in order for the
Lady Bobcats to have success early in the season.

  Coach Ivy only sees opportunity when she looks at this year’s team. “We have the ability to accomplish so much this year, but
we have to lace up every game and be ready to play forty minutes of basketball.”

   The Lady Bobcats’ youthfulness and up-tempo game will be fun to watch. The coaching staff is counting on hard work,
dedication, and discipline daily from this team to succeed throughout the season. If the team buys into the system and learns
to play together, then the young Lady Bobcats team will have a very successful season on the floor and in the classroom.

  Coach Ivy and Coach Long want to see the AWAC packed with fans every home game. The coaches know that the way this
occurs is to play a hard-nosed, high-energy type of basketball that is fun to play and enjoyable to watch. Positivity, dedication,
discipline, defense, and hard work are what this team will live, eat, and breathe during the 2008-2009 season. What you see
over this season and the next few years will hopefully be history in the making—that of the “New Peru.”
