In track breaking two minutes in the 800 meters and running 15:05 in the 5000 meters. Most of all, my most favorite memories are of my professors, classmates and fellow student athletes which gave me a lifetime of laughs and memories I'll cherish forever.

    My competitive running days are now just fond memories. I still dabble with the race timing as a hobby, it keeps me connected to the sport.
    My most recent fondest moments are my marriage to my wife Robin, my soul mate, and being able to watch my own son Ryan run is a dream come true. His 2:09 800 Meter time indoor as a high school freshman is impressive in his first year of competitive running. Maybe we have a future 2nd generation 49er in the making.

    Kirby Overcash (Men's Swimming; 49ers Mascot, 1988) Executive Director, Crossroads Ministry ... Charlotte, N.C. ... overcash@jps.net
    Favorite Memory: The old saying..."Nothing could be finer than to be a 49er." wasn't fully realized until Jeff Mullins, former NBA player for the Golden State Warriors of California, became the new Athletic Director and Men's Basketball Head Coach at UNCC in the mid 1980's. He brought the "New Attitude" motto that not only spread a revival of team spirit and pride among the athletic teams but also across the entire student body. I wanted to be a part of Coach Mullins' team but I couldn't shoot a free throw if my life depended on it. Then an opportunity presented itself when his wife became the supervising coach of the cheerleading squad. I went to the try-outs and was selected to be on the squad. Then an injury during pre-season practice that resulted in a broken hand eventually sidelined me from cheerleading after the first few games of the season. The most exciting opportunity was yet to present itself. During my "red-shirt" time on the squad Mrs. Mullins approached me to consider becoming the 49er mascot. A very expensive and "heavy" caricature head of the 49er was in development. From that time in 1985 until 1988 I enjoyed the life of anonymity as the 49er mascot. Taking pictures with and passing out candy to children along with playing mascot tricks on my friends and fellow students were some of the best things about being the mascot. In 1986 I joined the varsity swim team after being encouraged by my friends to try-out. In the spirit of the "New Attitude" head coach Steve Billings of the swimming and diving team didn't cut me from the team even though I had no prior competitive swimming experience. His belief and willingness to coach me to reach my potential to become a competitive swimmer was life changing for me. A few years later I began competing in triathlons. The camaraderie of the team was outstanding. We functioned more like a close family than a bunch of students participating on a sports team. Having the privilege to be the 49er Mascot and compete on the varsity swim team was the paramount of my 49er experiences. Having recently returned to Charlotte after 11 years in California I am very proud to see that Judy Rose, successor to Jeff Mullins, has not only continued the "New Attitude" spirit in 49er athletics but has taken the 49er athletic experience to greater heights. Congratulations and blessings to the 49ers of the new millenium! It's good to be home again!
    Proudest Moment: I have spent the last 11 years living in the San Francisco Bay area, namely Marin and Sonoma counties. Seven of those years were spent in the software industry working for Autodesk, Inc. and Mindscape, Inc. Then I took a leap of faith and a 60% cut in pay to begin my life's work as an educator of people both great and small. My last four years in California were spent as a member of the North Bay Christian Academy (NBCA) academic, administration, and athletics staff. One thing about working at a private school, especially the smaller ones, you get to wear many hats whether you want to or not. My academic and athletic experiences at UNCC more than prepared me for this adventure. I have taught high school Biology, Chemistry, Physics, PE, and Spanish. In addition I have taught junior high Science, Math, PE, and elementary Science and PE. I have coached the junior high cross-country, volleyball, and track & field teams. I left NBCA as an instructor, coach, athletic director, and assistant administrator. The sacrifices were worth making simply knowing that I had the privilege of making a positive impact on the future of tomorrows leaders, heroes, and champions!

    Favorite Memory: How do you pick a single favorite memory from four years of awesome fun. This was more than a group of men/women that formed a team, this was a family, with Coach Billings as a surrogate father to all of us.... One outstanding memory that I have is the week after Christmas, 1987 that we spent in the Cayman Islands. What better place could there be to bring in the new year? Thanks to my fellow teammate, Kirby Overcash for helping me get there.... My senior year was quite memorable also... that is the year that the outstanding freshman class arrived. Wow!!!, they were good. A great bunch of guys and girls that all fit in like it was exactly where they belonged.
    Proudest Moment: The births of my 2 boys... and then at the pool last summer, when my two-year old went under water "all by himself" as he liked to tell me...over and over again...

    Sheri Hall (Volleyball, 1985-89) Program manager, Boston University ... Sandwich, Mass. ... Husband, Heinz Proft and daughter, Sierra ...
    Favorite Memory: Road trips to and from the various matches and experiencing a new campus - we had a blast each and every time (except when Becky would throw her clipboard and embarrass us during the game)! I made some great friends during that time and I'm pleased to say I still have contact with some of them. Some of the best moments were watching the players that didn't get much playing time kick butt and really rise to the occasion when we needed them, having that "perfect" set, and connecting with Constance Watt for an amazing kill - ahhh, those were the days!:) And we all have to love Grady's - well, some of us more than others!
    Proudest Moment: Going to work on a small island in the Caribbean by myself shortly after graduating. Overcoming the growing pains of a young team (1985 volleyball) and sticking it out for the long term gave us all a sense of confidence that carried over into our everyday lives. I never questioned whether or not I could do it, if there were adverse situations, as there usually are in one way or another (especially on a remote island), I knew I could find a positive outcome and benefit from the experience. I ended up staying for 4 years and it was the best, and proudest, period of my life (aside from the birth of my daughter!).

I must have missed that ball by a foot, but the umpire was gracious enough not to see it that way. Also, not playing on Senior Day was a good memory.

Hitting for the cycle (Grand Slam included) against those hater Tar Heels my senior year, signing with the Braves along with teammate Cameron Browder, being around when those pine trees behind the wall were not tall, getting my degree and playing alongside such great competitors as Mickey Curry, Chris "Sleepy" Marien, Cam Browder, Donnie Poplin, Chris Haney, Donovan Mitchell, Allen Plaster, Mark "Guido" Nieters, Armando Rios, Sean Whiteside, Tim Collie, Kelly Skeens, Andy Bovender, Calvin Smith, Ray Hughes, Rob Price, Joe Ganote and so many others.

    Favorite Memory: Its hard to say there's one single favorite memory with UNCC. They'd have to be broken up into these: my 1st recruiting trip to the campus, my 1st game played after injuring my knee, going to the Big Dance several times, and of course walking across that stage to say that I finally made it through.
    Proudest Moment: On several occasions, I felt so proud to say where I was from and the school I had played for during my tour of Europe playing basketball. I really felt like I help put the 49ers on the map. Go NINERS!!!

Ed retired to become an assistant coach at UNCC after more than twenty years as Head Coach at Bernards High School (NJ).

The consistency of coaching allowed me to easily make the transitions from HS success to collegiate success.
    Proudest Moment: Kicking in the last 100m of the 10,000 to win the 1992 Metro Conference Championship at Tad Gormley Stadium in New Orleans. The best part was that, in the stadium that night were all my teammates and my parents -- both my families.

    Robert Brown (Track and Field, 1992-94) History Teacher, Assistant Football Coach, Track Coach, Crest High School ... Shelby, N.C. ... Wife, Heather
    Favorite Memory: Traveling and competing with a tremendous group of people and coaches. The people I met, places that I saw, and adversity myself and teammates overcame have formed more than one lesson in my classroom. I can honestly say that athletics can be a metaphor for life and have used this analogy extensively.
    Proudest Moment: This one may sound a little corny but it is true. After six years of teaching (mostly successfully) one of my students, who is now a freshman at UNCC, told me that I was the best teacher that she had had. In one moment it made all of the preparation, and low pay, and administrative hassles worth it. I owe it all to the preparation for both teaching and succeeding to UNCC.

Upon my return, I was lucky in that there was a teaching position open in the high school from which I graduated.

    Favorite memory: the fun I had with my teammates while traveling. I will never forget our trip to Germany & Belgium. It was the first time I had ever been out of the country, and probably one of the best trips I had ever taken. I learned alot about those two countries, but I learned even more about my teammates.
    Proudest moment: was being the first person in my family to graduate college. I will never forget the look on my parents' face when I walked across the stage on graduation day. There were many days I thought I would never make it, but I did! None of it would have been possible without the help of my fellow teammates, the coaching & suport staff, & the many friends I made while at UNCC.

    Proudest Moment: Graduation is one of the proudest moments, but the birth of my son in August 2002 is at the top of the list. Tim and I flew to my home in Scotland so my parents could be part of the birth.

    Nikki Richardson-Graves (Women's Basketball, 1995-99) Program Director, Boys and Girls Clubs ... Durham, N.C. ... Husband: Michael Graves ...
    Favorite Memory: My favorite memory as a forty niner was beating #3 Alabama! We worked so hard that game and I believe that success on the basketball court (that particular night) has allowed room for the success that I am having now in life. The one thing that I took from my basketball career is to never give up when things look dim, because a brighter day is soon to come!
    Proudest Moment: My proudest moment has been my marriage to my college sweetheart, Michael Graves and having an opportunity to thank the coaching staff Ed Baldwin, Tolonda Rose, and Ruth Watkins for showing me how to grow as a player and as an idividual. Best wishes to the next generations of lady forty-niners.....Take what you are taught in basketball and apply it to real life, but more importantly WORK HARD AT EVERYTHING YOU DO!

    Favorite Memory: There where so many great times as a 49er. The accomplishment of helping the team win the last Metro title. And gaining a berth to the NCAA. The road trips, the laughs the cries all will be with me the rest of my life. The program really was close knit. I can say that all of my former teammates were like a brothers to me. Shanderic, Rod, Dre, DeMarco, Quincy, Roy, Pino, Jarvis, Bobby K, and my boys Rob Price, Kelly, Joe -- team managers that kept us with laughs. Can't forget my coaching staff, Mark C, and all the members of the womens basketball team that I became friends with. And the ones I didn't, you were great to. May God bless.
    Proudest Moment: Also I have several proud moments since graduation. First of all I found a relationship with God, which I did not have during my playing days. I got married in 1997 to Greta Bell. I played professionaly overseas, and in the CBA for a total of four years. Basketball brought me to several countries across the globe. I have met prestigous people from all aspects of life. I started a company called James Vending which, I partly operate. Vending machines are on locations in companies in New York and Connecticut.

    ProudestMoment : I have just finished my fifth season as a professional basketball player, and every year (all my contracts have been one year deals) it is a great feeling to sign another contract, because that means that all the hard work I've put into it the year before, has paid off again. By the way, Byron Dinkins and I played together this season for B.C. Peristeri in Athens, Greece.

    Favorite Memory: Definitely winning a National Championship my last year on the team and receiving that Championship ring will be something I will carry with me forever. It's an amazing feeling, obtaining a goal as a team ... when you are doing your best not only for yourself, but because you want the person next to you to have that ring more than yourself. There were many life lessons learned from the experience itself...as well as from an amazing coach...and many lasting friendships made along the way. Being a 49er, supporting the basketball teams, and traveling to conference and NCAA tournaments was a great experience.
    Proudest Moment: Graduating and getting a wonderful job here in Charlotte. Also, being Assistant Coach of the Dance team and seeing another talented group of girls succeed in winning another National Championship in 2001.

    Favorite Memory: I have such wonderful memories as a student-athlete for UNCC. My favorite memories of soccer was definitely the friendships I made from players, coaching staff and the athletic department. Of course the highlight of my career as a soccer player was scoring the game-winning goal in (the championship of) our first Conference USA Tournament -- it's too bad we didn't get a bid to the NCAA Playoffs! I'll never forget all the different, unique and wonderful personalities all the girls possessed and most of all I will never forget the best coach I ever had, Robbie Church.

    Favorite Memory: Going after a dream of being the best college soccer team in the land and coming so close to making it come true. After playing soccer, baseball and basketball since birth I am glad I was able to support my fellow athletes. Freshman year -- our men's team cheering on our women's soccer team to victory one night in Ohio (I think we were the difference). It was tough going to school 800 miles away from loved ones but the people I met at Charlotte have given me some memories I will never forget.
    Proudest Moment: Playing for the Utah Freezz in the World Indoor Soccer League in Salt Lake City, Utah. Playing against the legendary Tatu of the Dallas Sidekicks.

Thanks to UNCC for so many opportunities to sing the national anthem at basketball games.

    Favorite memory: Its hard to narrow it down because there are so many! I guess I was always the clown! Hanging out with the baseball team as a freshman and staying in A_town with the girls on the team! Living with Sonya and Tiffany was great. Getting into trouble with Brooks! Any moments we got to hang out as a team was special! We had a great time no matter what! Roadtrips, conditioning, partying, studying...it all was special.
    Proudest moment: I guess I would have to say making it through school and doing what I wanted to do! I am a happy teacher and successful coach to a group of amazing girls! I own a home and that is big for me!

    Sara F. Swilling (Softball, 1997-2000) Sports Information Intern, University of Houston Athletics ... Houston, Texas ...
    Favorite Memory: My favorite memory are the days when the team played ultimate football for conditioning. I used to drop all of the passes, but Girls! I have been practicing. The team I wish to remember is the one from my freshman year(spring 1997) BG, Brooks, Erika, Klinger. Everyone was mature enough to be able to put differences behind them and play the game. There was never a problem that we couldn't conquer as a team. I remember all of us getting together at the end of the year - everyone, freshman through seniors and we all had the best time!
    Proudest Moment: My proudest moment would be my senior year versus Winthrop in the Rock Hill tournament. We were struggling as a team through the third game of the day with one pitcher (Poor Amy Morse and her raw underarms) Everyone was frustrated. At the beginning of the game some frustration was diverted to me. I redirected this energy on Winthrop and Batted a circuit that included a long home run over the center field fence. Some players said that I was done running by the time the ball hit the ground. I was excited I guess!

    Jan Pollmuller (Tennis, 1996-1999) Assistant; Allianz ... Frankfurt, Germany ...
    Favorite Memory: "Holy moly...it has been a while since I last visited this homepage! Attending UNC Charlotte and playing tennis for the men's tennis team under Coach Boykin for five semesters (1996-1999) was definitely the best thing I have done so far - I think back quite often, especially after starting work in December 2002. Studying and playing tennis was so much more fun! "Tennis-wise", my favorite memory is still our quarter final victory against UAB at the conference tournament in New Orleans - even we sucked in the semis. But most of all I remember all the "9ers" I got to know. Special greeting to my former team mates, Coach Boykin, Coach Gandar and "the ladies from next door". Hope ya'll doing great! THE POLLE"

    Favorite memory: Wow! Where do I begin! The trip to Biloxi, Mississippi for the Men's Conference Title was the beginning of many life-long relationships. I had many laughs and wonderful learning experiences with Bret Wood, Royce Kincaid-Martin, Carlton Anderson, Angie Guggino and Matt. Since I was the athletic trainer for the women's basketball and volleyball teams, I have countless memories. I heard everything! I got an ear-full about everything from physical pain to break-ups with boyfriends to school pressures to family issues etc. etc. etc. Travelling with the Women's Basketball team was my favorite time. It taught me how to balance my responsibilities as a student and as a trainer. The bonds that were created during those years with Coach Baldwin, Coach Watson, Coach Rose, Nikki Richardson-Graves, and all the girls still remain. To this day, I still can't eat at Sonny's Barbecue(smile)!
    Proudest Moment: My proudest moment was studing abroad and receiving my Master's Degree in Health Promotion and Kinesiology in 1999.

    Proudest Moment: recieving my bachelor's degree, FINALLY!

    Volleyball
    Erin Eldridge(Volleyball, 1995-98) International Sales Representative for TTI Inc. ... Arlington, Texas. Favorite Memory: The most fond memories that I have of being as athlete are the ones that built life long friendships. The people that I met and the relationships that I built are invaluable, fellow athletes and coaches, trainers, etc. alike. These are the people who helped us get through the tough times, and who made our experience a good one.
    Proudest Moment Since Leaving School: Rather than a proudest moment, I would say that the overall best experience that I have had since I graduated was the year following graduation. I studied abroad in Paris for a year, and I traveled a great deal. This will hopefully open up doors for more travel and potential work overseas in the future.
