Season Outlook

Season Outlook Distance Freestyle

Kansas is led in this category by junior Rebecca Swank, who had a solid summer swimming for Kansas Aquatics and is close to her Olympic Trial cut in both the 400 and 800 free. Also contributing in the distance free is sophomore Morgan Sharp, who swims the 200 and 500 free and senior captain Shannon Garlie. Sophomore Alison Moffitt “improved a lot and really got the program figured out,” said Coach Campbell. “Now she knows what the expectations are here, so we are expecting big things out of her.” Fellow sophomore Malia Johnson is also someone who adds depth to the 500 and 1,000 free events.

KU’s Senior Captains

Sprint Butterfly

The Jayhawks debut another strong senior class in 2011-12 as all

Senior Abigail Anderson stands out in this category as she narrowly missed the NCAA Championship in the 100 fly the last few years and is looking to make a splash during her final season in Lawrence.

five were key contributors in the team’s 10-5 dual record in 2010-11 and 2-1 Big 12 Conference mark. Five new faces will don KU suits this fall, including three freshmen and two juniors.

Leading Kansas this year will be its three senior captains, two additional seniors and nine juniors. With a total of 15 upperclassmen, KU will no doubt bring much experience to the pool this season as the Jayhawks try to outswim and dive their opponents in the Big 12 and beyond.

“Senior Kath Liggett had a tremendous summer and is our new team record holder in the 100 meter butterfly because of her performance at sectionals,” said Campbell.

Freestyle

Kansas adds two new faces to its freestyle corps this season in junior newcomers Vanessa Hanbury and Svetlana Golovchun. Hanbury comes to Lawrence from Indian River State College in Florida, while Golovchun will now call KU home after swimming at Surgut State in her home country of Russia. “Svetlana is one of the top swimmers in her country and Vanessa is a two-time junior college swimmer of the year,” said head Coach Clark Campbell. “So I think in those areas we will be very strong.” Also contributing in the free category are sophomores Shelby Cox and Kara Stranski as well as junior Madison Wagner. Cox is coming off an injury this summer, but showed promise, scoring points for her team in the 2011 Big 12 Championships in Austin, Texas. Senior captain Sarah Hettenbach will add much leadership and depth to this group as she looks to improve upon a solid 2010-11 campaign.

6

Also adding depth in that category is sophomore Malia Johnson, who was a national qualifier in the 200 butterfly at the 2011 Big 12 Championship as well as Stephanie Payne, who is another national qualifier in the 200 fly and has improved her 100 fly quite a bit, according to her coach. Joining Johnson and Payne will be two freshmen in Deanna Marks and Rachel Snyder. Marks will be looked upon right away to contribute in those areas as will Snyder who was a national qualifier during high school in the 200 fly.

Abigail Anderson

Season Outlook

Season outlook Backstroke

Anderson is the top returner in the backstroking corps for the Jayhawks during the 2011-12 season, who made her relay Nationals cuts in the 100 and 200 meter backstrokes. “Abigail is somebody who we will be looking to lead-off the medley, especially in the 200,” said Campbell. “She is a dynamite 50-yard backstroker, so she will no doubt be leading the way.” Junior Brooke Brull will be another solid contributor in the backstroke events as well fellow junior Alyssa Rudman. Freshman Caroline Patterson will add depth to the backstroking corps and as Coach Campbell put it, “will lead this event down the road in her career.” Patterson will follow in the path of sophomore Sara Snow, who was a newcomer to the team and event in 2010-11 and will provide strong leadership to the group.

“Stephanie has had just a remarkable run in both the 200 and 400 IM, but we would like to get her 200 (time) faster,” said Campbell. “If we do that, it will help her 400 IM, which is an event she can swim in the NCAA Championships.” Brull will return for another solid campaign and hope to improve in the 200 IM, where Coach Campbell brands her as “one of our fastest swimmers in the 200 IM.” Also seeing time in the 200 IM slot will be Lusk, who will looked upon to score points for KU during dual meets and Big 12’s, as well as fellow junior Brittany Rospierski, who will help out in the shorter IM events. Specializing in the 400 IM will be Moffit, who had a solid end of her sophomore campaign. “Last year Alison pretty much shocked everybody in the program with how well she did in the 400 IM at Big 12’s,” Campbell remembered. “She scored some points and came very close to making her USA National cut, so we expect big things out of her this year as well.” Junior Rebecca Swank teams up with Moffitt as a fellow scorer at last year’s Big 12 Championship and will add some depth and experience to the 400 IM.

Stephanie Payne Breaststroke

The Jayhawks will have a relatively young look to the breaststrokers as sophomore and national qualifier Alison Lusk heads up the group. Following Lusk will be juniors Brittany Rospierski and Cora Powers, who Campbell says had “fantastic summers” swimming for Kansas Aquatics. Rounding out the group is senior Stephanie Payne, who will contribute heavily during dual meets in the 200.

individual medley

The unquestionable leader for Kansas in this event is another senior captain in Payne, whose 4:51.46 time in the 400 IM during Nationals this past summer gave her a second event to compete in during the 2012 Olympic Time Trials in Omaha.

7

one meter dive Sophomore Alyssa Golden will look to improve in what is already her strongest event as junior Christy Cash will provide solid depth and experience. Both Golden and Cash tallied career-best scores in the one-meter in 2010-11 and will have a good chance at eclipsing their 243.25 and 272.25 scores, respectively. “Alyssa now has her first year under her belt and knows what this conference is all about,” said diving coach Eric Elliott. “She is a super hard worker and learns very well, so just knowing what to expect this year and how hard she is going to have to work is an important step in the right direction.”

Season Outlook

Season outlook three meter dive

Cash leads the way in the three meter events, where she compiled a 224.40 score in the Zone “D” Diving Championships last season. Her career-best score of 246.90 came earlier in the season against Iowa State. This season, coach Elliott expects her to improve in this event as well as the two others she competes in. “I think this year she is really going to step it up,” Elliott said. “We are changing her hurdle a little bit and she is learning some new dives, so she is starting to beef up her degree of difficulty, which is important.”

n Herrman

Golden will add depth to the event. She, along with Cash, received career best scores in the three-meter event last season.

Outside of the Pool

Platform Dive

The platform is Cash’s strongest event according to Elliott, who thinks she should improve this season, especially with a trip to Columbia in early December, where she will get to practice at the Mizzou Invite. “Junior year is usually a pretty good step for divers,” Elliott said. “If they keep it going, which she (Cash) has been healthy, knock on wood, by her senior year, she is going to be able to really dive well.”

Bunting & Fox

In 2011-12, the Jayhawks will boast one of the most seasoned and experienced coaching staffs they have had in recent memory. Former KU swimming standout Danielle Herrmann returns for her second season as a volunteer assistant. Herrmann continues to swim competitively, as she suited up for Coach Campbell and Kansas Aquatics over the summer, finishing with two of the five fastest times on the team. Joining Herrmann on deck will be former teammate Joy Bunting, who after finishing up her senior season last year, will stay on with the team as a student assistant coach.

Christy Cash

“Having a consistent coaching staff over the last eight years has led to much success and efficiency in our program,” said assistant swim coach Jen Fox. “With the addition of Danielle and Joy working with us, I believe that we can provide the team with one of the best coaching staffs and resources possible.”

Cash tallied a careerhigh score of 225.60 in the event during the Big 12 Championships last season and finished 22nd in the platform during the Zone “D” Championships last March.

Summer Swimming

Kansas Aquatics K

ansas Aquatics wrapped up its second summer of competition in early August, with more than half of the KU swimmers participating. KA is a swim club, open to local collegiate swimmers within 50 miles of Lawrence. It is a member of Missouri Valley Swimming, a division of the USA Swimming organization. Kansas Aquatics provides current KU swimmers with an opportunity to train with their team during the summer. “The summer season is valuable to the collegiate season because it helps you prepare and stay in shape,” said Kansas assistant coach Jen Fox. Participating in KA also gives student-athletes an opportunity to stay in Lawrence and take summer classes as well as exploring internships and other job opportunities.

While there are plenty of opportunities that Kansas Aquatics provides a swimmer, the coaching staff understands that some student-athletes may want to swim for clubs they have competed for in the past. “We are fully supportive of athletes going home over the summer, provided that the team they will be training with has a high level of training for the summer season,” said head coach Clark Campbell.

KA

The main focus is Sectionals and Nationals, and depending on the year, the Olympic Trials. Swimmers who have participated in Kansas Aquatics over the past two seasons say their experience in the summer pays off in the fall. “Kansas Aquatics helped me build a foundation athletically as well as strengthening my relationships with my teammates. This helped me to jump start my collegiate season when it started in the fall,” said Joy Bunting, former KU and KA swimmer and current KU student assistant. In the summer of 2011 there were 14 swimmers representing Kansas Aquatics, 12 of which are current KU swimmers.

Kansas Aquatics swam to a first-place finish during sectionals,

beating out over 100 swim clubs from six different states throughout the Midwest. In 2010, KA finished third during sectionals, but with a first-place finish in all three relay events and 50-points scored by KU junior Rebecca Swank, KA was able to come out on top in 2011.

Stephanie Payne continued to have a stellar summer as the senior qualified for the 2012 Olympic Trials in her second event. Her 38th-place finish in the 400 IM (4:51.46), was the highest any Kansas Aquatics member has placed since the summer swim club began competing at Nationals in 2010.

Among the many highlights for head coach Clark Campbell’s crew was senior Stephaine Payne qualifying for the 2012 Olympic Trials with her 2:16.39 in the 200 meter fly. Joining Payne and Swank in their team's success were former Jayhawk standouts Maria Mayrovich and Danielle Herrmann, who competed for KA during the summer.

“Stephanie has had a tremendous summer,” said head coach Clark Campbell. “She is going to leave here as one of the best student-athletes that we have had in the program.” Riding the wave of momentum set by their teammate, other members of Kansas Aquatics also had successful performances at Nationals. Former Jayhawk standout and current KU volunteer assistant Danielle Herrmann finished 66th in the 100 breast (1:12.27) and 84th in the 200 IM with her 2:20.41 time. Herrmann was just six spots behind Payne whose 2:20.27 gave her a 78th-place finish in the event. Sophomore Alison Lusk also finished in the top 100 of one of her events, as she placed 90th in the 200 breast. KA finished 33rd, 31st and 34th, respectively, in each of its relay events.

Mayrovich scored 40 total points with her first-place finishes in the 100 and 50 free. Herrmann, who is a volunteer assistant coach for KU during the regular season, racked up 17 points with her second-place finish in the 200 IM. Current Jayhawk, Payne scored a total of 33 points for her team during sectionals. “We were shocked that we were even in the running to win sectionals,” said head coach Clark Campbell after the meet. “We had a fantastic weekend of swimming and this sets us up really well for nationals.”

Olympic Trials

The Road to London Kansas senior captain Stephanie Payne is one step closer to competing in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London after she made trial cuts in two separate events during summer 2011, while swimming for Kansas Aquatics and head coach Clark Campbell.

Payne finished with a lifetime best 2:16.39 time in the 200-meter butterfly at sectionals in Columbia, Mo., and a 4:51.46 time in the 400 IM two weeks later at Nationals in Palo Alto, Calif. Both performances were enough to send her to Omaha, Neb., for the 2012 Olympic Trials to be held from June 25-July 2. “I am more than excited to see where next year takes me,” Payne said. “Being able to compete at the Olympic Trials will be a great way to complete my career.” “We are really proud of her accomplishments,” head coach Clark Campbell said of Payne. “It is every swimmer’s goal to have an opportunity to go to Olympic trials and represent their country in the games, so these were no doubt big steps for Stephanie in achieving her life-long goal.” Payne, a senior from Derby, Kan., is coming off a successful junior campaign in which she broke two school records (one of which she already owned), at the Big 12 Championships in February, while scoring a total of 27 points for her team in the process.

Athlete Testimonials

Jayhawk Memories Here’s what former KU swimmers & divers are saying about our program: “I had the wonderful opportunity to swim for the University of Kansas from 2002-06. I could not have asked for better coaches, teammates, support staff and what I received 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 Kansas was truly priceless.”

Danielle Herrmann KU Pharmacy, 2011 Volunteer Asst. Coach

Gina Gnatzig 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 Jayhawk swimming and diving team is in large part why my collegiate 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!”

Athlete Testimonials

Jayhawk Memories “Swimming

for KU is an experience that I will treasure because it is one that I don’t think I will ever fully be able to experience again. It gave me an outlet in which to compete, the ability to travel, an amazing support system and the most wonderful friends I could ever imagine. Being a part of the KU swimming and diving team transformed my college career into more than just receiving my diploma. It made me realize that I was a part of something bigger: a team surrounded by a supportive athletic community and an incredible college with proud alumni all over the world.”

Jes Brozek Kansas, 2008 Academic-All Big 12 KU Med Student

Jenny Short Kansas, 2007 NCAA Qualifier Team Captain

“Inside the KU swimming and diving program, you will find an environment that gives you a chance to reach your potential in the water and in the classroom. A high priority is put on preparing you for life after graduation. I believe that my coaches, teammates and the university as a whole brought out the best in me and in return, helped me become a better swimmer, but most importantly a better person. Sharing in the rich KU traditions and becoming a part of the Jayhawk community is something I will keep close to my heart forever.”

“I am forever a Jayhawk and forever changed because of my experience swimming for the University of Kansas. 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 staff 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 staff on a daily basis. The University of Kansas is a place where I established life-long relationships, while working 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!”

Athletic Director’s Profile

Sheahon Zenger Athletics Director Second Year at Kansas (2011 - Present)

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 studentathletes 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 2009-10 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 best-ever 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 MidAmerican 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 the football coaches at Manhattan (Kan.) High School. His first college football coaching job came at Drake University right after graduation. 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.

Athletic Director’s Profile 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.

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.

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.

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).

2010-11 inReview Review 2009-10Season Season Senior

Iuliia Kuzhil qualified for the 2011 NCAA Championships and sophomore Christy Cash represented the Jayhawks at the Zone ‘D’ Diving Championships, both in Austin, Texas during another strong campaign for head coach Clark Campbell and his Jayhawks. The team’s 10 wins marked the second time in three years KU has posted double-digit victory totals, a feat that has not been accomplished since the 1991-92 and 1992-93 seasons, when the Kansas women won a combined 24 meets. Kansas began the regular season in Tucson at the Arizona Duals, where they dropped meets to Arizona State (157-105), Arizona (178-84) and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (131.5-128.5). Sophomore Rebecca Swank shined in the desert, placing third in both the 1000-yard freestyle and the 500-yard freestyle, while seniors Iuliia Kuzhil and Joy Bunting also took third place in the 100-yard backstroke and 200-yard IM respectively. After being edged out by rival Missouri during their first Big 12 Conference meet of the young season, the Jayhawks returned to Robinson Natatorium for their first home meet. KU improved their record to 2-4 in dual competition with wins over visiting Drury (189-108) and North Dakota (195-119). Senior Iuliia Kuzhil broke her Robinson record in the 200-yard backstroke with her 1:58.44 time, while seniors Joy Bunting and Brittany Potter, sophomore Monica Johannessen as well as freshman Alison Lusk all came in first in their respective events. Sophomore Taylor Ilten joined her swimming counterparts in the winner’s circle as she placed first in the one-meter dive

“This was our best fall invite in eight years,” Campbell said. “The team really rose to the challenge and performed at a very high level. It does set us up very well for the rest of the season.” Campbell’s words would prove to be true as his crew would head to the sunshine state during the New Year to take part in two different competitions. KU first participated in the Orange Bowl Classic in Key Largo, where they would win 11 of 12 events en route to totaling 297.5 points, defeating George Mason (87), Vermont (68.5) and Florida International (65). “We were honored by the Orange Bowl Committee for the invitation, and swimming as well as we did, made the meet extra special,” a satisfied Coach Campbell said following the classic.” Just two days later, KU would show their dominance in the pool yet again, surging past 22nd ranked LSU (124-92), American University (159-48) and Florida International University (151-67) in Miami to push their dual meet record to 5-4. Sophomore Rebecca Swank led the Crimson and Blue as she placed first in both the 500-yard freestyle and 1000 freestyle events. The Jayhawk women would conclude their early January road trip with a win over Vanderbilt (182-75), in Tennessee to improve to 6-4 in dual meet competition. A total of nine different swimmers would win 11 different events, including senior Iuliia Kuzhil and freshman Alison Lusk, who both won two apiece.

“This was a really good meet and it seems like we are gaining more momentum every week,” Coach Campbell said after the meet. “We have improved since the Missouri dual. It’s kind of tough to come off a rivalry meet and then do well two weeks later, so I’m really pleased about where we are.” Next up for the ‘Hawks was the Georgia Fall Invitational in Athens, where a total of 12 swimmers and divers scored points for their team. Junior Shannon Garlie tallied the most points for her school, netting 16 during the 1650 freestyle. KU finished with a grand total of 371, which put them in fifth place for the Invitational. Senior Iuliia Kuzhil rose to the occasion, posting a 1:54.43 time in the 200 backstroke, which earned her an invite the NCAA Championships.

2010-11 Team

Season Review

2010-11 Season in Review After dropping their first home meet of 2011 to No. 18 Arkansas (170-130), Kansas would bounce back with a victory over exiting Big 12 Conference foe Nebraska. The Jayhawks would leave Lincoln with a 180.5-114.5 win and a 7-5 dual meet record. Kuzhil and Lusk again won two events apiece, while another seven Jayhawks would claim one at least one first place finish. KU returned to Robinson Natatorium for their next dual meet, where they again showed their command of their home pool, with victories against Northern Iowa (161-91) and South Dakota (165.5-89.5). The Jayhawks won 14-of-16 events in the double-dual as three Crimson and Blue swimmers finished first in at least two events. “We have trained and raced very well over the last three weeks, so now we just have to keep it going and get ready for Conference,” Coach Campbell said after his team’s eighth and ninth victory of the dual-meet season. Senior weekend in Lawrence would be special this year as Campbell’s squad would welcome in the visiting Cyclones of Iowa State for the final dual meet of the season. The program would say so long to five seniors (Joy Bunting, Iuliia Kuzhil, Amanda Maez, Alyssa Potter and Brittany Potter), as it looked to notch its tenth victory in dual competition of the 2010-11 season. The seniors would not disappoint as Bunting and Kuzhil both won events in their final home meet. Collectively, KU took seven out of eight events from the Cyclones and finished the regular season with a 10-5 dual meet mark, with a 2-1 record against Big 12 opponents.

Out of the pool and inside of the classroom, the swimming and diving team performed equally as well as they compiled a combined 3.21 GPA for the fall 2010 semester, which was the fourth highest of any team in the Kansas athletic program. They were also given the 2011 Scholar All-America Team award for their 3.15 GPA during the spring 2011 semester by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA). 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. While four of the five seniors from KU’s 2010-11 class will be leaving the program, Joy Bunting will be staying on with the team as a student assistant coach for the 2011-12 season. Bunting will graduate in May 2012, with a bachelor’s in communication studies. “Joy brings a lot of enthusiasm, heart and energy to this program,” assistant coach Jen Fox said. “I can’t wait to start working with her on deck.”

After the meet, Coach Campbell was complimentary of his senior class. “I have been coaching for 18 years and this is one of the best senior classes I ever had the pleasure of working with,” he said. “All five of them brought something unique to the program to make it a lot better.” At the 2011 NCAA Championships, also in Austin, senior Iuliia Kuzhil competed in two different events, the 100 yard backstroke, where she finished 34th (53.89) as well as the 200 back where she placed 41st with a time of 1:57.93. Not to be outdone by her swimming counterparts, sophomore diver Christy Cash represented KU at the Zone ‘D’ Diving Championships in the Lone Star State. Cash finished in 22nd place in the platform dive (182.20), 30th in the one-meter (225.40) and 33rd from three meters with her 224.40 score.
