SEASON OUTLOOK

JAYHAWKS LOOK FOR IMP ROV E ME NT IN 2012-13 SW IM M IN G A strong group of upperclassmen and an influx of young talent has this year’s swimming and diving team looking to improve its 5-5 dual meet record and fourthplace finish at Big 12 Championships from a season ago. Led by senior captains Brooke Brull, Alyssa Rudman, Rebecca Swank, the junior and senior classes, make up a majority of this year’s roster. Three sophomores and a talented group of seven freshmen, including two that come in with Olympic trial qualifying times already under their belts, round out the Kansas roster. Head coach Clark Campbell knows that in order for his team to be successful this season, he will need both groups in sync and ready to go right away. “It is a good blend of top heavy with the upperclassman, which is good because of the leadership, but on the underclassmen side, we have a lot of ability,” Campbell said. “We are going to need everyone firing on all cylinders and doing really well and staying competitive, but it is reasonable.” After recently finishing an Olympic quadrennium, this year’s team is more experienced, well rested and looking to improve at the conference meet this year. “We had a little more energy and excitement starting the year, which is good, Campbell said. “The potential for this group from what we learned last year, going into this year, is good. I think everyone is in a really good place.” Big 12 newcomers TCU and West Virginia will make it that much tougher for the Jayhawks to improve on their fourth-place finish from a year ago. However, Campbell’s squad is looking forward to the challenge and believe they can be right in the thick of things come February. “We really feel we can be in that hunt,” Campbell said. “TCU and West Virginia are coming in and they are a lot like us in many ways. It is just going to be really competitive, but it is not something that isn’t attainable, we can do this.”

Senior Brooke Brull leads KU’s grou p of upperclassme n.

Six home events highlight the Jayhawk schedule, which includes defending Big 10 champion Minnesota and a five-team championship style meet, hosted by the team in the fall. “We are really excited about this year, because we have more home meets than we are generally used to,” Campbell said. “We have a good mix of teams coming in and we are really excited about going to Topeka for our fall championship meet. It will be the first multi-day meet we have had, in a championship format, since I have been coaching here.” The highlight of the road schedule comes just after the holidays, when the team travels west to Los Angeles for a tri-meet on Jan. 12 with the Mountain West runnerup San Diego State and host UCLA. After spending a few days in California, the team will leave the lower 48 to travel farther west to Honolulu for a week of training. The week will conclude with a dual meet against Hawaii, who placed third in the WAC a season ago. “Hawaii is something that will be a first for our team,” Campbell said. “Getting to spend a few days to do the Hollywood thing in LA and getting to swim really good UCLA and San Diego State teams, helps to break up the trip a little bit.”

SEASON OUTLOOK

FREESTYLE Plenty of returning talent and blend of newcomers, fuels the belief that freestyle will be a strong group for this year’s Jayhawks. On the sprinting side, the team returns Svetlana Golovchun, who had a top-15 finish in the 50 at last year’s Big 12 Championships, and Kaja Kolsek, who will look to have a solid year after transitioning from long-course to short-course racing during her freshman campaign. Senior Madison Wagner, who set her career-best time in the 50 at last year’s Big 12 Championships, will also be counted on heavily to contribute in the shorter-distance events. In the middle distance events, Campbell has confidence in Kansas native, freshman Haley Molden who currently holds all the freestyle records at Washburn Rural, to turn heads in the coming years. “(Haley) has big goals right now,” Campbell said. “She is definitely on that 2016 track, so she is going to come in and make a statement right away.”

“We were definitely hit hard by graduation,” Campbell said. “We are bringing in a young hot shot in Chelsie Miller, so she, along with Brooke Brull in the 200 IM, will be leading the way.” BUTTERFLY The loss of Olympic trial qualifier Stephanie Payne and Kath Liggett, who graduated last spring, will certainly be felt in the butterfly this season. However, the young talent of Sofiia Filatova and Deanna Marks, as well as junior Malia Johnson, who had top-15 finishes in the 100 and 200 at the Big 12 Championships, has optimism about the future of the position rising. “We are probably not as deep as we could be, but we are young,” Campbell said. “They are going to be around awhile and that is their thing, but they are very good, so it is a good group.”

Swank and Morgan Sharp, KU’s record holder in the 500 free, will be relied upon to score in the long distance events. Also in that group is junior Alison Moffit, who finished in the top-eight at the Big 12 Conference Championships a year ago.

BREASTSTROKE Senior breaststroker Brittany Rospierski and junior Alison Lusk return after scoring last season at the Big 12 Conference Championship meet. Freshman Bryce Hinde made her Olympic trial cut in the 100 just after the trials and will be looking to improve on that time this year.

“We are well represented in freestyle,” Campbell said. “We have people who can do the short stuff, all the way to the long stuff, so we should be pretty strong.”

“Breaststroke is definitely one of our more solid events,” Campbell said. “We have good talent and good depth, which should definitely be a strong point for us.”

BACKSTROKE Another deep group for the Jayhawks, the backstroke core is led by Brull and Rudman, who scored in the 100 and 200 at the Big 12 Conference Championships last year. Freshman Alina Vats has competed in big meets and is another newcomer the Jayhawks will be looking at to make an impact right away.

Senior Cora Powers, who placed fifth in the 200-yard event at the Big 12 Championships, and freshman Chelsie Miller, who had an Olympic trial cut in the 200, will also be counted on to contribute.

“(Alina) is a very, very good backstroker,” Campbell said. “She has world championship experience and she was really close to making the Ukrainian Olympic team this past year. She is going to make some noise.” Sophomore Caroline Patterson and junior Sara Snow, set new career-best times at the Big 12 Championships last year and will also be counted on to add depth in both the 100 and the 200-yard events, to round out the group for Campbell. IM Led by senior Rebecca Swank, who scored last year at the Big 12 Conference Championships in the 400, the individual medley is the least represented group on the Jayhawk roster, but one of the most talented. Senior Brooke Brull will anchor the 200-yard event, while freshmen Chelsie Miller, who had Olympic trial cuts in both distances, and Bryce Hinde will add depth in their respective distances. Kaja Kolsek finished 13th in the 100 free at the 2012 Big 12 Championship

SEASON OUTLOOK

THREE-METER DIVE Cash also set a career best in the three-meter event last season, scoring 257.02 on six dives in a dual against Arkansas and finished 28th at the Zone Diving Championships with a score of 241.15. Golden placed 38th at Zones with a score of 189.15. PLATFORM Cash and Golden both set career bests in the platform event at the 2012 Big 12 Championships, scoring 240.00 and 145.95, respectively. Both divers also qualified for the Zone Diving Championships where they placed 18th (214.55) and 28th (128.75). “(Christy’s) strongest event is platform,” Elliott said. “I think she can really crank it up there. She is definitely our strongest competitor as far as knowing how to compete and keep it together when it counts.”

Senior Christy Cash brings experience to KU’s divers.

D IV ING Diving coach Eric Elliott is excited for the start of the season and what his team will be able to accomplish after returning both of his top divers from a season ago. Senior Christy Cash and junior Alyssa Golden both qualified for the Zone Diving championships last season and will be looking to improve on their marks this year. “I think it is going to be really great,” Elliott said. “The level of competition is pretty steep, but having those experiences under their belt going into their junior and senior year is going to have them really ready to go this year.” In addition to his returning talent, Elliott welcomes two newcomers to the roster. Freshmen Meredith Brownell and Madeline Martin will give the Jayhawks depth that they haven’t seen in a few years. “Their eyes are pretty wide open,” Elliott said of his first-year divers. “I am excited to have some young blood in here and have the upperclassmen guide them and really show them how the program works and what is expected of them.” ONE-ME TER DIV E Last season Cash and Golden both set career best scores in the one-meter, scoring 289.04 and 269.02. Both will be looking to improve on their finishes last year at the Zone Diving Championships, where they finished 30th and 35th respectively. Freshman Meredith Brownell will add depth to the Jayhawk rotation. “(Meredith) will be one of our strongest one-meter divers,” Elliott said. “She has the tools, she has the dives, she has the mechanics. I think she is going to do very well, especially as a freshman coming in.”

TRAINING TRIP

“Our winter training trip is one of the most important parts of our overall season. It is really important from a training standpoint to get to some place that is sunny and warm in the middle of winter to set us up well for the championship season. It gives our athletes something to focus on and set goals by and is at a place that can help raise their game to another level.” — Head Coach Clark Campbell

JAYHAWK MEMORIES

GINA GNATZIG

“I had the wonderful opportunity to sw im for the Un ive rsity of Kans as from 2002-0 6. I could not have asked for better coaches, teammates, support staff, and what I recei ved for an education. I had some of the best memories of my life as a member of the KU swim team, and it made me who I am today. Swimming for a Big 12 school is an amazing experience, but being a Jayhawk and representing the University of Kans as was truly priceless.”

Kansas, 2006 KU Record: 500 Free

“There are so many unique and wonderful things about coming to school here. KU has provided me with a great college experience and has taught me how to balance academics and athletics successfully. Being a member of the Jayhaw k swimming and diving team is in large part why my experience has been so great. Clark and Jen have done so much for me in the years I have been here, not only in the pool but in all aspects of student life. Most importantly, being on this team meant sharing these experiences with a group of girls, who are not only my teammates but my friends for life. I could not have asked for a better place to be!”

JAYHAWK MEMORIES

MARI A MAYROV ICH Kansas, 2008 NCAA Qu alifier KU Record: 200 Free

“I was recruited by more than 20 different Division I universities when I was applying to college. Through my experiences, I found that many of them offered me what I was looking for, but it became clear to that I was looking for something more than just a good program and quality school. What I was searching for was a group of people, who would serve as a family that would help me grow as a person, a swimmer and a student. After speaking with (head coach) Clark (Campbell) and (assistant coach) Jen (Fox) for the first time, it did not take long to realize that these people were the ones I needed to trust in and believe. Once I stepped foot on campus, my experiences were much more than I could have imagined. Girls on the team were welcoming and nice, coaches were respectful and dedicated, and the place was beautiful and felt like home. ”

“I am forever a Jayhaw k and forever change d because of my experience swimming for the University of Kans as. This incredible program gave me the opportunity to maximize my potential not only as a swimmer, but as a student and as an individual. The coaches and the staf f are truly unique because they care about each and every person that is a part of the Jayhawk family. Excellence is something that is not only expected of student-athletes here, but is demonstrated to us by our support staf f on a daily basis. The University of Kans as is a place where I established life-long relationships, while work ing hard in the pool and in the classroom . It is also somewhere that I will always cherish because I have learned and grown so much through all of my hard work , competition and fun. Rock Chalk Jayhawk !”

LOCKER ROOM

Kansas recently overhauled the swimming and diving locker room for the 2011-12 season. The revamped locker room features 32 new sit-in lockers that are 18-inches wide, with under-seat and overhead storage, redone floors with epoxy and a Jayhawk logo in the middle. A sofa and chairs will accompany the lockers to serve as a gathering place for student athletes and coaches before and after meets.

LOCKER ROOM

Another part of the project called for a new restroom, seven individual showers as well as a training area with an ice machine. Two swimsuit dryers and 14-inch vanity mirrors with under counter storage can also be found beyond the locker area. A brand new 40-inch flat screen TV also hangs on the wall in between the lockers and the training area.

COACHES/ADMINISTRATION

CLARK CAM PBELL CARE E R RE CORD:

Head Coach 11th Season Coffeyville, Kan.

Overall . . . . . . . . 145-81 (.623) at KU 77-36 (.681) backstroke at the Championships with a time of 53.06 seconds, which was strong enough for a 21st-place finish.

C AR EE R AT KANSAS (2002- PRESEN T ) Now in his 11th season at Kansas, head coach Clark Campbell is looking for continued excellence. During Clark Campbell’s 10th season as the head swimming coach at Kansas, the team finished with a 5-5 dual meet record. The Jayhawks were strong at home in 201112, recording a 3-1 record at Robinson Natatorium. The team also placed 13 members on the Academic All-Big 12 team and posted a 3.62 GPA during the spring 2012 semester, earning a spot on the College Swimming Coaches Association’s Scholar All-America Team Award list. During Campbell’s ninth season as head swim coach, KU compiled its second highest dual meet win total since 2008-09, with a 10-5 record and a 2-1 mark in the Big 12. KU was also a strong performer at its home pool, amassing a 5-1 record inside Robinson Natatorium. Under his guidance, senior Iuliia Kuzhil represented KU at the 2011 NCAA Championships in Austin, Texas, where she competed in the 100 and 200 yard backstroke events. Outside of the pool, Campbell’s team compiled a combined 3.21 GPA for the fall 2010 semester, which was the fourth highest of any team in the Kansas athletic program. Twin sister swimmers, Alyssa and Brittany Potter were inducted into Rho Chi, a national academic honor society for pharmacy following the 2010-11 season and senior Joy Bunting was named the 2011 Outstanding Woman Student in Athletics. The Jayhawks finished a successful 2009-10 season with a 9-4 dual record under the leadership of Campbell. KU had two representatives at the NCAA Championships, one Honorable Mention All-American and 13 swimmers and divers named to the 2010 Academic All-Big 12 Team. At the 2010 NCAA Championships, backstroke swimmer Iuliia Kuzhil placed ninth in both the 100-yard (52.02) and 200-yard (1:53.44) backstroke events. Diving standout Meg Proehl also competed, placing 23rd on the one-meter board and 32nd on the three-meter board. For her outstanding performances throughout the season, Proehl was named Big 12 Diver of the Week twice. Campbell led the Jayhawks to an exceptional 2008-09 campaign, securing an 11-3 record. The team shattered nine school records, including all five relay records, during the season. Kansas had 18 swimmers and divers named to the 2009 Academic All-Big 12 Team, with six Jayhawks maintaining perfect 4.00 grade point averages. Three Jayhawks qualified for the 2009 NCAA Championships, including freestyle swimmer Maria Mayrovich, backstroke standout Iuliia Kuzhil and diver Erin Mertz. Campbell coached Mayrovich to a 20th-place finish in the 50 yard freestyle, 21st in the 200 yard freestyle and 19th in the 100 yard freestyle. Mayrovich’s 200 yard freestyle time of 1:46.19 smashed the school record by 0.82 seconds. Kuzhil broke her own school record in the 100 yard

Campbell and the Jayhawks raced to a winning 7-2 dual meet record in the 2007-08 season, capping it off with a fourth-place finish at the 2008 Big 12 Championships in Austin, Texas. Seventeen of Campbell’s swimmers and divers were named to the Swimming and Diving Academic All-Big 12 team in February, the most in the Big 12 Conference. The Jayhawks collaboratively shattered four Robinson Natatorium records, adding five Kansas all-time records at the Big 12 Championship meet. The Jayhawks additionally broke 14 records in opponents’ pools, for a grand total of 23 new records for Campbell’s swimmers and divers on the impressive season. Campbell coached junior Danielle Herrmann to her second-consecutive NCAA appearance in the 200 IM, 100 and 200-yard breaststroke events. Herrmann set Kansas all-time records in all three of her NCAA-swum events, while also capturing two of the four Robinson Natatorium records. Mayrovich contributed to Kansas’ home pool records, shattering the last two Robinson Natatorium records in the 100 and 200-yard free events. For her performances, Mayrovich was named Big 12 Swimmer of the Week on Nov. 8. In addition to an emphasis on academics and athletics, Campbell and the Jayhawks place an importance on community service. For her community service efforts, diver Meghan Proehl was named to the Big 12 Winter Good Works team. Mertz joined Mayrovich and Proehl as the three Jayhawks to receive Big 12 individual accolades when Mertz was named Big 12 Diver of the Week Feb. 20 for her first-place finishes on the one and three-meter boards against Iowa State the previous week. During Campbell’s fifth season at Kansas (2006-07), Kansas achieved an overall season record of 6-1 in dual meet action and a 2-1 finish in the Big 12 Conference. The Jayhawks paved a path to a third-place finish at the Big 12 Conference Championships in College Station, Texas, the best conference finish for Kansas since 2004, when Kansas also placed third. Seven broken records completed the 448.50 point finish behind swimming and diving powerhouses Texas A&M and Texas. Under Campbell in 2006, the Jayhawks established 12 Kenyon Athletic Center Natatorium records, while cruising to a third-place finish at the Nike Cup-Kenyon Invitational in December. Senior diver Shelby Noonan reeled in Big 12 co-Diver of the Week accolades for her performance in College Park, Md., in November at the Terrapin Cup Invitational where Kansas rallied for a second-place finish. Three Kansas swimmers received invitations to compete in the 2007 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships March 8-10 in Minneapolis, Minn., at the Minnesota Aquatic Center. Kansas’ three swimmers, sophomore Danielle Herrmann, freshman Ashley Robinson and senior Jenny Short, were the most since 1998 when the Jayhawks also sent three competitors. Campbell coached Short to the 200-yard Kansas backstroke record following her record-breaking stint at the Big 12 Championships where she additionally broke the 100yard backstroke record and was a member of the 200 and 400-yard record-breaking medley relay teams.

COACHES/ADMINISTRATION

Continuing the high academic standards set forth by Campbell and the Kansas coaching staff, the Jayhawks placed 16 swimmers and divers on the Academic All-Big 12 team, with 14 on the first team (3.2+ GPA) and two on the second team (3.0-3.19 GPA) during the 2006-07 season. In addition, the Jayhawks attained the highest GPA of all Kansas athletics teams during the spring 2006 semester, accumulating a 3.39 GPA. Campbell completed his fourth year at Kansas with an 8-2 dual meet record and a perfect 3-0 mark in Big 12 competition. He also recorded his 100th career win during the 2005-06 season and coached the Jayhawks to a fourth-place finish at the Big 12 Championships. Kansas set four school records and had had six swimmers qualify for the NCAA Championships. The Jayhawks jumped into the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Division I Top-25 Poll for the first time since 1997, an outstanding honor for both Campbell and the team. The Jayhawks accepted Academic All-America team honors for the second year in a row. Their team GPA of 3.26 during the fall semester placed them first in the Big 12 Conference. Fourteen Jayhawks were selected as Academic All-Big 12 First Team honorees. While two Jayhawks received second team accolades. As an Academic All-America team, Kansas repeated its outstanding performance in the classroom during the spring semester, improving its team GPA to 3.39.

Leidigh made her first appearance at the NCAA Championships in Athens, Ga., competing in both the 100 and 200-yard butterfly. During the 2004-05 season, the Jayhawk swimmers had 16 entries into KU’s top-five record books. Two swimmers, Amy Gruber and Jenny Short, qualified for the 2005 NCAA Championships. Campbell’s team not only performed well in the pool, but also in the classroom. Jenny Short, Jackie Krueger, Lindsey Urbatchka and Terri Schramka were all honored by the CSCAA as Academic All-Americans for the 2004-05 season. The Jayhawks’ 3.21 team GPA also landed Kansas on the CSCAA Academic All-America team’s list, where KU ranked 40th overall for highest team GPA. The swimming and diving team had 17 members named to the Academic All-Big 12 Team, 15 to the first team and two on the second team. In Campbell’s first four seasons, the swimming and diving program has produced two Senior Scholar-Athletes of the Year in Gwen Haley and Gruber.

while Campbell was at the helm of the program in 1998. Those top marks included 12 Missouri Valley Conference records. During his four year tenure at Evansville, his squads were named Academic AllAmerica by the CSCAA all eight semesters. Prior to his appointment at Evansville, Campbell served as an assistant men’s coach at the University of Minnesota from 1995-98. During his time in Minneapolis, the Golden Gophers captured Big Ten Conference titles in 1996 and 1998 while earning top-15 finishes all three years at the NCAA Championships.

He was named the NAIA Swimming Coach of the Year in 1995.

PER SO NAL Campbell competed as a professional triathlete for seven years before his coaching career began. After turning professional at the age of 19, he became one of the most consistent top-10 finishers on the pro circuit. During his career, Campbell was self-coached. He was the 1986 National Long Course Champion and the 1990 runner-up at the United States Triathlon Series National Championship. Campbell received a Bachelor’s degree from Kansas in 1993, and a Master’s in physical education/coaching from West Virginia University in 1995.

Additionally, for her outstanding freshman campaign, Mertz received Big 12 Diver of the Week honors Feb. 20. The Kansas divers completed an impressive 2006-07 season with three NCAA Zone Diving Championship qualifiers, contributing to Kansas’ 6-1 overall record and 2-1 record in the Big 12 Conference. Then senior Shelby Noonan, junior Jenny Roberts and freshman Meghan Proehl represented Kansas at the NCAA Zone D Diving Championships at the Jamail Texas Swim Center March 2-4 on the University of Texas campus in Austin, Texas. Noonan, Roberts and Proehl all placed in the top-20 in their respective events as Noonan reeled in an eighthplace finish on the one-meter board and a 12th-place finish in the three-meter competition. In early 2006 competition, Noonan, Roberts and Proehl swept first, second and third in the one-meter diving competition in the double-dual meet against Nebraska-Omaha and South Dakota State.

SHEAHON ZENGER

Athletics Director Second Year

the football coaches at Manhattan (Kan.) High School. His first college football coaching job came at Drake University right after graduation. Dr. Sheahon (SHAY-un) Zenger is a coach at heart. But when KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little introduced the Hays, Kan., native as KU’s Athletics Director January 3, 2011, he promised not to call any plays for the coaches. That doesn’t mean, though, that he won’t be right there with them - and their student-athletes - every step of the way. For it’s his genuine care for coaches and student-athletes that has stamped his career in intercollegiate athletics. Zenger comes to KU after serving for five years as athletics director at Illinois State University, helping steer ISU Athletics to a place of prominence in the Missouri Valley Conference. The Redbirds won a conference-leading seven league titles during the 200910 season and captured their second Valley All-Sports Trophy in three years. ISU’s Weisbecker Scholarship Fund membership grew 65 percent during his tenure, and capital projects boomed. The Illinois State Baseball Stadium at Duffy Bass Field was officially dedicated in May 2009 to culminate the completion of that $3.5 million project. In addition, funding for the Redbird Arena locker room improvements has also been secured. With experience as an educator, coach, fundraiser and administrator, Zenger brought a plan to Illinois State, and with the help of the head coaches and administrative staff, personalized that strategic plan for Redbird Athletics. As a result, the athletics department saw record-high grade-point averages (GPA) in each of the last four years, including a bestever department-wide 3.13 GPA in fall 2009. Redbird student-athletes now regularly carry a GPA of 3.0 or better. ISU student-athletes have also contributed more than 2,000 hours of community service in each of the last five years, including 3,500 hours during the 2009-10 athletic season. In addition to Valley All-Sports titles in 2008 and 2010, in his last three years at ISU Zenger led the department to 16 top-five finishes in its 17 Valley sports - the highest percentage of top-five finishers in league history. Zenger secured a five-year apparel contract for Redbird Athletics, and significantly increased the marketing of the program in the Central Illinois region, most notably with a campaign centered on the award-winning marketing campaign “Spread the Red.” He also witnessed record-setting attendance figures in football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball, while seeing 17 Redbird teams advance to postseason play. At the beginning, Zenger wasn’t headed toward a career in administration. He was nine years old when he told his father he wanted to be a coach, and it didn’t take long for that dream to materialize. After playing football at Fort Hays State and Mid-American Nazarene College, he finished his undergraduate degree at Kansas State. Even before he received his bachelor’s degree in English and secondary education in 1988, Zenger was assisting

56

In 1989, at age 23, Zenger joined Bill Snyder’s staff at Kansas State as one of the nation’s youngest full-time football staff members; he served in key roles as assistant recruiting coordinator and director of football operations. Zenger completed his master’s degree in journalism and mass communication in 1992 while helping Snyder bring Wildcat football to unprecedented success. It became evident, though, that more than coaching was in store for Zenger. He sought advice from then-KU Chancellor Gene Budig, who convinced him to pursue a Ph.D. at KU. As he completed his Ph.D. in educational policy and leadership (1996), Zenger contributed communications and special projects support to the office of the executive vice-chancellor, Ed Meyen, and wrote the professional life history of then-chancellor Del Shankel, while strengthening his understanding of university leadership at the highest levels. While focusing his attention on academics, he managed to stay involved in the world of intercollegiate athletics, and specifically football. ‘Involved’ may be an understatement. In 1993 Zenger and a friend founded American Football Quarterly, a magazine for coaches. Zenger served as publisher - and then editor - until 1995, when he sold his share of the by-then-thriving magazine. Still, coaching stayed in his blood. After earning his doctorate, Zenger in 1996 signed on as the recruiting coordinator for the brand-new NCAA Division I football program at the University of South Florida. A year later he joined the University of Wyoming football staff as recruiting coordinator and within two years rose to assistant head coach, a position he still considers one of the crowning achievements of his career. Zenger stayed at Wyoming through the 2000 season before returning to Kansas State. He spent a year in the KSU College of Business, raising more than $2 million and restructuring its development program with research and planning. He rejoined KSU Athletics in 2001 as assistant athletics director for major gifts, helping KSU initiate important development strategies. In 2002 he was appointed KSU’s associate athletics director for development, a position he held until 2005, when he was named Athletics Director at Illinois State. A published author and researcher, Zenger served for three years on the NCAA Division I Committee on Student-Athlete Reinstatement. He also served on two NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Division committees, and was a member of the Executive Committee of NACDA’s Division I FCS Athletic Directors Association. He is also a member of many professional and university organizations, including the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), the Association for the Study of Higher Education and the American Football Coaches Association. Zenger is married to the former Pam McAnarney. The couple has three children: Luke (14), Abby (12) and Jake (10).

Senior Stephanie Payne and junior Brooke Brull both recorded Olympic Trial times, while junior Christy Cash and sophomore Alyssa Golden competed at the NCAA Zone ‘D’ Championships for the Jayhawks, who finished the season with a 5-5 record and placed fourth at the Big 12 Championships with 423 points. Out of the water, the team welcomed brand new locker room facility. The $200,000 renovation included 32 lockers, seven individual showers, a new training area complete with an ice machine, two new swimsuit dryers and a 40-inch flat screen TV. “We are absolutely thrilled to have the new locker room and it is a big upgrade for us,” said head coach Clark Campbell at the time. “We really appreciate all the donors and supporters of the program, who without their help could not have completed this project.” With its new facilities in place, the team started the season on the road, traveling to Tucson, Ariz., to take on the University of Arizona on Oct. 8 in a dual meet. Payne was the lone winner for the Jayhawks, with a 2:08.23 time in the 200-yard IM, as they fell to the Wildcats, 170-80. Two weeks later, the Jayhawks faced another tough road test, traveling to Minnesota on Oct. 21 for a dual with Golden Gophers who finished the season ranked 15th. A 206-87 defeat dropped the team’s record to 0-2. A clean sweep would welcome Clark Campbell and his swimmers in Cedar Falls, Iowa,

Junior Vanessa Hanbury and sophomore Alison Lusk captured two events apiece, as KU swam past the Illini 174.5-118.5 and brought its dual meet record to 3-2 for the season. The Jayhawks had more than two weeks to rest before welcoming Big 12 Border Showdown rival Missouri Nov. 11 into Robinson Natatorium. KU hung with the No. 15 Tigers for the majority of the meet. Three straight first-place finishes by junior Rebecca Swank (1,000-yard freestyle), senior Shannon Garlie (200-yard freestyle), and freshman Deanna Marks (100-yard backstroke) in the meet’s first four events gave the Crimson and Blue a solid start, but the Tigers proved to be too much, reeling off a 185-102 victory.

2011-12 SEASON IN REVIEW

“It is really nice to get that qualifying score done this early,” said diving coach Eric Elliott following the dual accomplishment. “Now we can work on some dives that we are really going to need once we get to the Championships.” KU would make its first of two trips to the Mizzou Aquatic Center in Columbia during the season, this time for the Mizzou Invite, which took place during a threeday stretch in December. Out of eight schools, Kansas would finish in third place behind host Missouri and Boise State. The Jayhawks earned 604 points, which was 119 points ahead of fourth place finisher North Texas, to close out the fall season. The highlight of the invitational came on the first day, as sophomore Morgan Sharp set a new school record in the 500-yard freestyle with her time of 4:48.01, which surpassed the old KU mark of 4:48.77, set by Gina Gnatzig in 2006. “It doesn’t happen too often to have a record fall this early in the season, but Morgan just did an awesome job,” Campbell said following his swimmer’s record-breaking performance. “We have been working with her and tweaked her stroke a bit and she has taken to it really well.” After a light December slate, Kansas boarded a plane and traveled to Mayaguez, Puerto Rico for its annual training trip. The Jayhawks arrived on Jan. 3 for their eight-day stay in the Spanish-speaking territory. Night swimming, land and water workouts all led up to the Mayaguez Invite, which took place on Jan. 7. The event pitted KU against first time opponents LaSalle and St. Michael’s and took place in a long course format. The Jayhawks finished first during competition with a total of 238 points, (103 in front of second place LaSalle). Kansas would perform well in the warm waters under the Puerto Rican sun, claiming first place honors in all but one event. A mere four days after returning to the continental U.S., the Jayhawks jumped back into their home waters for a Senior Day match-up with former Big 12 foe Nebraska

on Jan. 14. Seniors Shannon Garlie, Sarah Hettenbach, Kath Liggett and Stephanie Payne were all honored in a pre-meet ceremony as KU looked to finish their home season strong. The ‘Hawks would do just that handing Nebraska a 155-145 defeat. The Kansas juniors would steal some of their senior counterparts’ thunder as Rebecca Swank and Brooke Brull won a total of three events, giving KU a 3-1 home record on the season. The senior day victory also pushed Kansas’ record to 5-3 on the year, which marked the 11th-straight season a KU team has reached the five win plateau. Kansas would close out the busy month of January in Fayetteville, Ark., with a loss to the Razorbacks on Jan. 21, 199-96. The Razorbacks would take the meet’s first seven events heading into the diving break, while KU finished first in a total of only two down the stretch. Senior Stephanie Payne was the first in the 400-yard IM (4:29.21) and the Jayhawks were the fastest in the 800-yard freestyle relay with a time of 7:38.18. The loss dropped Kansas to 5-4 on the season, heading into its final regular season dual meet. The team’s final regular season test came in Ames, Iowa, against Big 12 opponent Iowa State on Feb. 2-3. The Cyclones would get the best of the Jayhawks on the first day of the two-day dual meet, leading by a score of 82-68. The next day, KU would push ISU to the brink, keeping the meet close with just two events left to go, but Iowa State would muster only its third victory over KU in program history by the slimmest of margins, taking the final relay event and in return, the meet, 158-142. Payne kept the ‘Hawks in it up until the final solo event, thanks to her firstplace finish and 3:16.69 time in the 300-yard IM. The loss gave Kansas a final regular season record of 5-5 and made the Jayhawks 0-2 in a pair of Big 12 match-ups during the season.

2011-12 SEASON IN REVIEW

With the regular season over, KU shifted its attention to the Big 12 Championships on Feb. 22-25 in Columbia, Mo. During the four day competition, Kansas would amass a total of 423 points, which was good for fourth place. A total of 20 KU swimmers would earn top times in 36 different events, while two Jayhawk divers achieved lifetime best performances on the platform. It was KU’s highest point total at the Big 12’s in four years and capped off the swimming portion of the 2011-12 schedule. The Kansas divers closed out their season with a successful trip to the NCAA Zone ‘D’ Championships (3/9-11) in Iowa City, Iowa. Junior Christy Cash made her second straight appearance in the event and finished 30th (228.50) in the one-meter, 28th (241.15) in three-meter competition and 18th (3/8-10) in the platform. In her first career appearance at Zones, sophomore Alyssa Golden placed 35th (211.65) in the one-meter, 38th (189.15) off of the three-meter boards and 28th (128.75) in the platform. The Jayhawk swimmers and divers earned a number of academic accolades during the month as 13 of them wound up on the Academic All-Big 12 Team following their performances during the fall 2011 semester. Nine student-athletes would find a spot on the first team (3.20-4.00 GPA), while four placed on the conference’s second team (3.00-3.19 GPA).

Alison Lusk placed fifth in the 200 breaststroke at the Big 12 Championship.
