WAR EAGLE

“War Eagle” Auburn’s battle cry, not Auburn’s nickname. There are several legends concerning the origin of the War Eagle battle cry, dating back to 1864 and the Civil War at the Battle of the Wilderness in Virginia. For over 100 years, eagles have been associated with Auburn University’s football program. From a static presence on the sidelines to rousing flights over the field, WAR EAGLE has become an Auburn icon. The role of Auburn University’s eagles is to promote wildlife conservation as a part of the education initiatives of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the College of Veterinary Medicine’s Southeastern Raptor Center. The USF&WS permits the Raptor Center to house eagles and use them on hundreds of educational presentations each year – including Auburn’s home football games. Currently, three flighted eagles and numerous other non-releasable raptors are used for these educational programs. Eagles stir emotions in many people as they have come to symbolize strength, power and courage as well as other important values such as freedom, American heritage and the preservation of our environment. Golden Eagles Tiger (War Eagle VI), Nova (War Eagle VII) and Spirit (a Bald Eagle) are the eagles who have inspired football fans with their graceful flights over Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Auburn Fight Song War...Eagle, fly down the field, Ever to conquer, never to yield. War...Eagle fearless and true. Fight on, you orange and blue. Go! Go! Go! On to vic’try, strike up the band, Give ‘em hell, give ‘em hell. Stand up and yell, Hey! War...Eagle, win for Auburn, Power of Dixie Land! 14


ALMA MATER/CREED

Auburn Alma Mater

On the rolling plains of Dixie ‘Neath its sun-kissed sky, Proudly stands, our Alma Mater Banners high. To thy name we’ll sing thy praise, From hearts that love so true, And pledge to thee our Loyalty the ages through. We hail thee, Auburn, and we vow To work for thy just fame, And hold in memory as we do now Thy cherished name. Hear thy student voices swelling, Echoes strong and clear, Adding laurels to thy fame Enshrined so dear. From thy hallowed halls we’ll part, And bid thee sad adieu; Thy sacred trust we’ll bear with us The ages through.

Auburn Creed I believe that this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I earn. Therefore, I believe in work, hard work. I believe in education, which gives me the knowledge to work wisely and

We hail thee, Auburn, and we vow To work for thy just fame, And hold in memory as we do now Thy cherished name.

trains my mind and my hands to work skillfully. I believe in honesty and truthfulness, without which I cannot win the respect and confidence of my fellow men. I believe in a sound mind, in a sound body and a spirit that is not afraid, and in clean sports to develop these qualities.

Composed by Bill Wood ‘42 Word revision 1960

I believe in obedience to law because it protects the rights of all. I believe in the human touch, which cultivates sympathy with my fellow men and mutual helpfulness and brings happiness for all. I believe in my Country, because it is a land of freedom and because it is my own home, and that I can best serve that country by “doing justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with my God.” And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it.

JAMES E. MARTIN AQUATICS CENTER

Draped with banners honoring the eight-time Men’s NCAA Champions, four-time Women’s NCAA Champions and 21 SEC titles, the James E. Martin Aquatics Center has been home to the Auburn swimming and diving team since it opened in 1993. Chosen to host some of the top competitions in the sport of swimming, the Aquatics Center is designed as one of the premier natatoriums in the nation, and provides Auburn and its athletes with the perfect facility for training and competition. During the 2002-03 season, the center was showcased on multiple occasions, as the Southeastern Conference Championships was held here for the third time since dedication and the 2003 Women’s NCAA Championship was hosted by Auburn from March 20-22. The facility had also previously hosted the 1998 NCAA Men’s Swimming and Diving National Championships. The Oct. 7, 2002, issue of Sports Illustrated rated the pool third fastest pool in the country. During the course of the two championship events in 2003, a total of 12 SEC records were established while seven new NCAA records were set during the women’s championships. The facility last hosted a major event in 2009 as the SEC Swimming and Diving Championships were held at Auburn. The center is set to host the 2012 NCAA Women’s Swimming and Diving Championips. in March of that year. Formally dedicated on April 30, 1994, the $10.5 million center is named for former Auburn president Dr. James E. Martin, a key player in the project’s undertaking.

The 63,000 square-foot facility opened in October, 1993, and hosted nine collegiate competitions during its first year of operation including the 1994 Southeastern Conference Championships. Since its opening, the facility has become a home to a multitude of national and international Olympic teams. Auburn swim teams have competed against members of the U.S. National Team in competitions, the U.S. Water Polo Team has used the facility for training sessions and competitions and various other national teams called the Martin Aquatics Center home in preparation for the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta including China, Japan, Finland, Israel and South Africa. The center played host to the U.S. Open in 1995, 2000 and again in 2005. The three-day meet featured approximately 800 of the top American and international swimmers. The swimming center complex, located between Beard-Eaves Coliseum and the Student Activities Center, houses an Olympic-size pool with two moveable bulkheads which allow for variable distance competition and simultaneous diving. The center is equipped with seating for approximately 1000 spectators with an additional 800 seats for competitors on the pool deck. The facility adjoins Auburn’s former swimming facility, which has undergone an extensive renovation and now serves as a warm-up and practice pool. The facility was designed with speed in mind and results from the 1998 NCAA Men’s Championships, 1994 SEC Championships and 1995 U.S.


JAMES E. MARTIN AQUATICS CENTER Open prove that the pool is one of the nation’s fastest. The design of the pool incorporates a state of the art gutter system which absorbs waves rather than reverberating them back into to the competition pool. Ultimately, the design creates a calmer pool and reduces the amount of turbulence swimmers must face. In addition, the bulkheads feature a flow-through design which minimizes waves rebounding on turns. The pool is nine feet deep at its most shallow point and 16.5 feet deep beneath the diving apparatus. The diving facility features two one-meter springboards, two three-meter springboards and five platform levels (1-, 3-, 5-, 7.5- and 10-meters). The floor of the diving well is navy blue and provides a darker contrast which makes it easier for divers to spot the water during the course of a dive. Recent additions to the facility include a new Daktronics high-definition video board on the west wall, along with new record boards displaying Auburn, NCAA and World records. A new closed-circuit television/video camera setup has also beed added on the pool deck.

OUTDOOR TRAINING FACILITY

Auburn Outdoor Training Facility

For years, Auburn University has had one of the top competition and training facilities in the country in the James E. Martin Aquatic Center. In the fall of 2007, Auburn furthered the commitment to its athletes as the Tigers opened their new outdoor pool, adjacent to AU’s Student Activities Center. Sitting at the former site of Auburn’s Luther Young Tennis Courts, the outdoor pool is 50-meters long and 25-meters wide. It can be set up with 10 lanes for long course (50-meter) swimming or 22 lanes for short course (25-meters). The pool holds 600,000 gallons of water and is heated so that it can be used throughout the year. Along with the bonus of training outdoors, the outdoor pool offers an advantage in training for international competitions as many of those are held outdoors.

HEAD COACH HAWKE

BRETT

HAWKE HEAD COACH / SECOND YEAR / AUBURN ‘10

Brett Hawke looks to bring the 2010-11 Auburn Swimming and Diving team to a new level as he enters his second year at the helm of the program. During his first full season as head coach, Hawke led the men’s program to its 16th SEC title and its record 14th-straight conference championship in 2010. During the 2010 conference meet, Auburn swimmers recorded seven individual titles and five relay titles. Under Hawke’s direction as co-head coach in 2009, the Auburn men came away with their eighth national title, capturing the 2009 Men’s Swimming and Diving NCAA Championship. During the three-day event, Auburn recorded 54 All-America honors and had one individual and four relay champions. The Tigers also set three US Open, three NCAA and 17 school records en route to the title. Hawke returned to The Plains in the summer of 2006 as an assistant coach for the program. Hawke, a native of Sydney, Australia, was a 17time All-American swimmer for Auburn from 1997 to 1999. As a member of the coaching staff, Hawke works directly with the Auburn sprinters. Under his direction, Cesar Cielo provided one of the top highlights from the 2008 NCAA Championships as he became the fastest swimmer in the world with his 18.47 in the 50 free. What made the mark even more impressive was not that he did it once, but he reached the mark three times. He won the 50 free with a time of 18.52 after qualifying with an 18.79 in the preliminary. His time of 18.47 came as the 200 free relay leadoff. In all, Auburn sprinters won six All-America honors with Cielo sweeping the 50 and 100 freestyle titles in 2008. He also became the first swimmer to break the 41-second barrier in the 100 free with a 40.92. For his efforts, Cielo was named the NCAA Swimmer of the Year for the second year in a row. During the 2009 World Championships, Hawke served as an assistant coach with the Brazilian national team and coached Cielo to two gold medals in the 50 and 100 freestyles. Cielo became the fastest swimmer in the world in the 100 free when he touched the wall in

46.91. Other Tiger sprinters medaling at the championships were Fred Bousquet (silver – 50 free, bronze – 100 free, 4x100 free relay) and Matt Targett (silver – 50 fly, bronze – 4x100 medley relay). Hawke also had the opportunity to coach Cielo at the 2008 Olympic Games. Serving once again as an assistant coach with the Brazilian national team, Hawke mentored the South American star as he won a bronze in the 100m free and a gold in the 50m free with an Olympic record time of 21.30. Other Auburn sprinters trained by Hawke at the 2008 Olympics included Matt Targett, Fred Bousquet, Jakob Andkjaer and Alexei Puninski. Targett and Bousquet both brought home medals after their performance on relay teams.

In the men’s 50 free, Auburn took the top two spots with Cielo taking the title and Targett right behind him. Scott Goodrich and Bryan Lundquist also made the championship final. In the women’s 50 free, it was Kara Denby leading the team in eighth. In the 100 free, Cielo picked up another NCAA Championship with a time of 41.17 and Targett followed in sixth place. In the women’s 100 free, it was Denby again leading the team in fourth place, followed by Emily Kukors in fifth. During his time in Auburn, Hawke captured nine NCAA titles to go along with seven SEC crowns. In 1997, Hawke became part of Auburn history as he was a member of the first NCAA Championship team. At the 1997 NCAA meet, Hawke won four titles, including one as part of the 200 medley relay team that set a new U.S. Open and NCAA record. At the same meet, Hawke claimed Auburn’s second ever 50m free title. He duplicated the relay performance the following year with the medley relay team that took the crown in a NCAA meet, NCAA and U.S. Open record time. In 1999, Hawke helped lead the Tigers to their second NCAA team title en route to capturing four titles of his own at the meet. During his three years as a student-athlete, Hawke was also part of three SEC team championships. A two-time Olympian, Hawke finished sixth in the 50m free in Athens. Hawke has three Commonwealth Games medals in his collection, including silver in the 50m free from 2002. Adding to his long list of international experience, in 2001 and 2003, Hawke was a World Championship finalist in the 50m free and at the 2002 Pan Pacific Championships, Hawke won bronze in the 50m free. A five-time Australian champion, Hawke is the former Australian record holder in the 50m free with a time of 22.07 that he set at the 2004 Olympic Games in the semifinal round.

HEAD DIVING COACH SHAFFER

JEFF

SHAFFER HEAD DIVING COACH / 12TH YEAR / WISCONSIN (‘80)

Jeff Shaffer has been developing and guiding divers across the country to great accomplishments throughout their careers in the last 30 years. He came to Auburn almost 12 years ago as one of the most respected coaches in the diving community and has improved the Auburn diving program in Olympic-size proportions. During his tenure at Auburn, Shaffer has made the diving program into a complete complement to the Auburn swimming program. Through his strong coaching ability and sound philosophy, Shaffer has guided his student-athletes to success. “Our philosophy here at Auburn is developing divers from the ground up,” Shaffer said. “It is a growing process and through the experiences gained here, our divers have the opportunity to become great.” Shaffer’s coaching career kicked off in 1980 after he graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a bachelor’s degree in physical education. He moved to Mission Viejo, Calif., and assisted diving legend Ron O’Brien from 1980-85. Shaffer followed O’Brien to Boca Raton, Fla., and continued to coach with him until 1988. While with O’Brien and during his career coaching at the club level, Shaffer coached divers of all ages and ability levels and demonstrated the gift to develop divers to world renowned status. His talent was recognized by the United States Olympic Committee in 1996 when they honored him as the inaugural recipient of the USOC National Developmental Coach of the Year for all Olympic sports. Throughout his club coaching career, Shaffer has guided divers to many distinguished accomplishments. Such honors include 10 World Junior champions, 39 National Junior champions, eight Senior National champions, three Junior National Team titles and three Senior National Team titles. Shaffer carried his philosophy and achievements to the col36

legiate level, first to LSU, then to Southern California and now at Auburn. His divers have played crucial roles in contributing to the success Auburn has had on the national level, making an impact on 12 of Auburn’s NCAA team titles. The contributions started through Shaffer’s first recruiting class that included Caesar Garcia and Ashley Rubenstein and have continued throughout the last 12 years. Evidence of Shaffer’s philosophy of developing athletes can be seen through all of his pupils, including Garcia and Rubenstein. With Shaffer’s guidance, Garcia grew from an All-American as a freshman to a two-time NCAA platform champion, the 2004 SEC and NCAA Male Diver of the Year and a XXVIII Olympian. Rubenstein played a significant role in the three NCAA championship teams she was a part of. She was a member of Auburn’s first-ever women’s NCAA title in 2002 and as a senior in 2004, her fourth-place finish on the 1-meter contributed to the team’s large margin of victory and its third-straight national title. Rubenstein has gone on to be a 2004 USA Olympic Team Trials finalist, a National Team member and most recently, the 2006 U.S. National title one the 1-meter. Among the many successful divers Shaffer has instructed, some include NCAA champions Matt Bricker and Steve Segerlin and AllAmerica honorees Corey Gerlach and Lynnsey Segraves. In 2009, Auburn’s Kelly Marx and Dan Mazzaferro played key roles on the team’s eighth NCAA title run during the 2008-09 season. Marx was runner-up on the 3-meter and reached the finals on the one-meter, while Mazzaferro earned honorable mention All-America honors on the three-meter at the national meet. Both divers earned honorable mention All-America accolades on the 10-meter platform. At the conclusion of the 2009-10 season, Shaffer’s diving


HEAD DIVING COACH SHAFFER corp came away with three SEC titles and seven All-America honors. Marx concluded his senior season with three All-America honors, two SEC titles (1-meter, platform) and was named SEC Male Diver of the Year. Vennie Dantin captured the conference 3-meter championship, while she and Anna Aguero competed in their first NCAA meet and came away with two AllAmerica honors each. Thad Ellis was also honored by the SEC, being named SEC Male Freshman Diver of the Year. All in all, the philosophy that Shaffer has embedded in his coaching has proven to be successful from his days with O’Brien to now as he continues to provide his student-athletes opportunities to grow into essential contributors to the continued accomplishments the Auburn swimming and diving teams experience, as well as success on the international level. Shaffer and his wife, Jenny, have two daughters, Amy (22) and Kelly (21). The couple also has a son, J.J. (Jeffrey Jr.) (16). Amy is majoring in business, while Kelly is a senior on the Samford University soccer team. Collegiate Champions

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING COACH/15TH YEAR AUBURN (1994)

The Auburn swimming and diving program - like all other sports at AU - are expected to be able to compete at the highest levels possible. With that in mind the Auburn swimming and diving staff, just like all other Olympic sports, entrusts Olympic sports strength and conditioning coach Bryan “PK” Karkoska with their athletes. At Auburn, athletes are made faster, stronger and more athletic through the intensity and genius of the strength and conditioning program. Karkoska and his staff transfers his intensity and enthusiasm into his weight room through legendary workouts. Known throughout the Auburn swimming and diving program for its legendary workouts is PK’s ATUBS training, which combines weight lifting and cardio-vascular exercises. ATUBS, formerly known as circuit training, stands for “Auburn Team Unifying and Building Sessions.” The sessions last for about an hour during the preseason and are used to establish and build team cohesiveness and the Auburn swimming work ethic and discipline. The circuit-training coincides with the training in the pool with an increased intensity on the dryland side, as well as, challenges the student-athlete both physically and mentally. “The circuit was by far the hardest part of the sesaon, but PK made sure that it was never an individual effort, the team got through circuit torgether.

2010-11 MEN’S OUTLOOK The 2010-11 Auburn swimming and diving team have embraced a new outlook for the season as both the men and women’s squads hope put themselves on top in the NCAA once again. The team is set to focus the year on the new team motto: Family. Tradition of Excellence. Character.

The Auburn men are looking to continue its dominance in the Southeastern Conference and hopes to win its 15thconsecutive and 17th overall SEC title come February. The team will look to their seven seniors for leadership this season as the group combines for 35 All-America honors, five NCAA event titles and 15 SEC event titles. Heading the group is redshirt senior and diver Dan Mazzaferro, who is coming off a knee injury that sidelined him last season. Fellow seniors Adam Brown, Adam Klein, Robert Looney, Andrew Mitchell, Kohlton Norys and Jared White all have the capability to be vocal leaders and hard workers on the team. “Kohlton (Norys) is one of our strongest leaders in the pool every day and Adam (Klein) is a SEC champion and will that guy the team looks up to,” head coach Brett Hawke said. “This group has experienced success before and wants to experience it again. They know how to push the team to be better and I believe they will do that.” Returning this year, along with the seven seniors, are four juniors and eight sophomores. The team welcomed 12 new faces this season in 11 talented freshmen and a junior transfer. FREESTYLE Leading the charge for the men in the spring free events are Brown and White, along with junior Karl Krug. Brown was runner-up in the 50 free at the 2010 SEC Championships to former teammate Gideon Louw, while Krug finished fourth and White was eighth. Brown also took third in the 50 free at the 2010 NCAA Championships. Brown reached the 100 free championship finals at the conference meet and took third. Krug and White both qualified for the consolation final, taking 11th and 14th, respectively. During the NCAA meet, Brown finished fourth in the event for the Tigers. Joining the group are freshmen James Disney-May, Zane Grothe and TJ Leon, along with junior transfer Drew Modrov. On the distance free side of the pool, Norys and sopho66

mores Kyle Owens and Brandon Siemasko will be key in the 200 free for Auburn. In the other distances, Looney and sophomore Chris Kramer, along with Siemasko, will be top contenders for the Tigers. Joining the team and expected to excel is freshman Dakota Hodgson. He is a high school All-American in the 500 free and has the ability to do well in the other distances. BREASTSTROKE Klein returns as the 2010 SEC champion in the 100 breast and also had a solid showing at the 2010 USA Swimming ConocoPhillips National Championships, finishing fourth in the 200m breast. He also took 11th in the 100m breast at the meet. Sophomore Stuart Ferguson joins Klein on the men’s side of competition. He earned his first-ever All-America honor as he finished 14th in the 100 breast at the 2010 NCAA Championships. At the SEC meet, Ferguson took fourth in the 100 breast and seventh in the 200 breast.

THE AUBURN PROGRAM HISTORY

AUBURN SWIMMING AND DIVING HISTORY Auburn organized a “tank team” five years before swimming was recognized as a Southeastern Conference sport. The 1932 squad was coached and captained by Howard Morris, a sophomore engineering student from Montgomery. Even before this team was officially established, Auburn competed in “telegraphic” meets. The pool in the basement of Alumni Gym was only 55 feet long and 25 feet wide. Three lanes were marked off, and the athletes swam three laps for 165 feet, or 50 meters. They timed themselves and compared the results with other schools via telegraph. How Auburn fared is shrouded in lost memories. By 1936, “Boots” Chambless, a former Auburn athlete and assistant football coach, headed the swim team known as the “Paddlers,” or the “Tank Team.” With 16 student-athletes eligible for intercollegiate competition, the team received new equipment, swimming suits and robes and were able to take 10 swimmers on the road to compete against other universities. Chambless was unable to coach during the 1938-39 season and by 1940, the team was captained by Henry Mohns and Sterling Smith, with an organization “built among themselves.” Various coaches helped out with training and scheduling meets. The 1940 team is the first to show up on official SEC records, finishing fifth at the SEC Championships. The Tigers finished fifth again the following year. What happened after 1941? Very little, if anything, judging by the lack of records. All collegiate sports took a hiatus during 1943-44 because of World War II and when they resumed, Auburn elected not to have a swim team because of inadequate facilities. Bo Torbert, a former Alabama Supreme Court Justice, was a member of the team that resumed competition in 1947. “We were the first after the war to have a swim team,” Torbert recalled. The SEC Championships resumed in 1948. The 1950s and 1960s were quiet years for the swim program, which consisted mainly of volunteers, the best swimmers from Auburn’s mandatory swim classes. One of the major accomplishments was the construction of a new pool adjacent to Memorial Coliseum. Students had been pressuring the administration for a new pool, but were met with constant resistance until Harry M. Philpott became Auburn’s president in 1965. He was a driving force behind the construction of Auburn’s first competitive swimming fa96

The 1974 team was Auburn’s first top-20 team, finishing 17th at the NCAA Championships.

ty cility. A new era of AU swimming began in 1970 when coach Bill Washington headed the new swim team formed that fall. “We got money to travel, but we had to buy our own suits, T-shirts and warm-ups. We swam in seven meets and lost all of them,” Washington said. The next year the team swam in 11 meets and won two. The third year, with Tennessee added, Auburn won five and lost eight. During this period, the conference developed into a nationally respected arena for top swimmers. At the same time, Washington moved into a full-time teaching position in the physical education department and the university hired Eddie Reese as the new swimming coach. Auburn’s rise to national prominence under Reese is unprecedented in NCAA history. In his first season, 1973, he took Auburn from last in the conference to fourth and was named SEC Coach of the Year. In 1974, Auburn jumped to third place in the SEC with the help of Mike Drews, who won three SEC titles and was named SEC Swimmer of the Year. With a 17th-place finish at the NCAA Championships, the Tigers served notice that they were becoming a national power. Auburn’s success enabled the Tigers to recruit better athletes to continue the success. In 1978, the men’s team hit its all-time high with a second-place finish at the NCAA Championships in Long Beach, Calif. Two-time SEC Swimmer of the Year Scott Spann captured individual titles in the 200-yard IM and the 100-yard breaststroke at the 1978 Championships. Auburn began a women’s program in 1974. Although no scholarships were offered until 1976, the Lady Tigers swam competitively under Reese. Following the 1978 season, Reese left Auburn for the same position with the University of Texas, which had just moved into a brand-new fa-

cility He has remained at Texas since leaving cility. Auburn and has served as the head coach for the U.S. National Team at the Olympic Games on three different occasions. Richard Quick, a former Southern Methodist All-American, who had developed a national reputation as a talented young coach, was chosen to replace Reese. Quick led Auburn to a sixth-place finish at the NCAA Championships in 1979 and a fifth-place finish in 1980, a position the Tigers would maintain for the next two years. From 1978 to 1980, Auburn swimmers David McCagg, Bill Forrester, Rick Morley and Rowdy Gaines dominated the 400- and 800-yard freestyle relays winning three NCAA titles. Women’s swimming became an official SEC sport in 1982 and Auburn’s team, lead by Annie Lett and Carolyn Goodley, finished fourth at the AIAW Championships in the first of three consecutive top 10 performances. But the era belonged to Ambrose “Rowdy” Gaines, one of the greatest athletes in school history. Gaines was known around the globe as the world’s fastest swimmer. As a sophomore he led the Tigers to a sixth-place finish at the NCAA Championships. By 1980, when he helped Auburn finish fifth at the NCAA meet, Gaines was practically invincible and was chosen for the United States Olympic Team. After the United States boycotted the 1980 Moscow Games, Gaines would later win three gold medals at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic

Shawn Corrigan-Asmuth earned seven All-American honors in 1980, the first Tiger to reach that feat.


AUBURN SWIMMING AND DIVING HISTORY Games. In the 1982 season, the Auburn men finished fifth and the women were fourth, but after the season Quick became the secondconsecutive AU coach to leave the Plains for the University of Texas. Quick spent six years at Texas, followed by 17 years at Stanford (winning 12 NCAA titles along the way) before returning to Auburn as its head coach prior to the 2007-08 season. Quick was succeeded by John Asmuth, who came to Auburn in 1973 as a swimmer under Eddie Reese. He became an assistant coach in 1976 and was retained by Quick in 1978. Asmuth is best known for helping coach Rowdy Gaines and coaching Per Johannson, an Auburn swimmer who won a bronze medal for Sweden in the 1980 Moscow Olympics and two bronze medals in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. Auburn diving reached new heights in 1987 when Jose Rocha captured the NCAA crown on the 1-meter springboard. During his career at Auburn, Rocha won five SEC titles and was twice named SEC Diver of the Year. In the eight years Asmuth was at the helm of the Auburn program, his teams finished in the top 10 three times and in the top 20 another three years. One of Asmuth’s greatest contributions to Auburn can be seen in the James E. Martin Aquatics Center. Asmuth was a key player in the plans to build a world-class natatorium and served as director of the James E. Martin Aquatics Center from 19902008. Auburn vaulted into the higher echelons of collegiate swimming in the 1990s. Equipped with a world-class facility and a talented, enthusiastic coach named David Marsh, Auburn swimming stood higher than ever before. A product of the Auburn swimming program, Marsh returned to the Plains as head coach in 1990. Over his last five seasons,

Rowdy Gaines remains as one of the most recognizable Auburn swimmers of all time.

Auburn swimming and diving produced 643 All-Americans honors. Success was the story for Auburn under David Marsh. In Marsh’s inaugural campaign, 1991, the Auburn men placed 20th at the NCAA Championships, only a year earlier they had failed to produce any NCAA qualifiers. The women made breakthrough strides in 1992, leaping 27 spots to eighth in the nation after 1991’s disappointing 35th-place finish. The men continued their climb up the national ladder with a 15th place 1992 NCAA finish. For the women, 1993 marked a secondconsecutive eighth-place NCAA finish. Marina Smith took the NCAA crown on the 1-meter springboard. The men rose to sixth at the NCAA Championships. Both teams placed second in the SEC. In 1994, the Auburn men did what no other Auburn swim team had ever done before, win a SEC team title. Swimming in the brand-new Martin Aquatics Center, AU claimed the team title in front of a capacity crowd. The women placed second at conference for the third straight year as Kristie Krueger captured her second SEC 100 butterfly title. At the national meet, the women made history by winning a relay, the 200 medley relay. Auburn became the first women’s team outside of Stanford, Texas and Florida to win a relay in NCAA Championship history in 1994. Stephanie Bowers, Keri Reynolds, Kristie Krueger and Allison Bock combined to win the 200-yard medley relay. Auburn finished fifth as a team. At the NCAA Men’s Championships, Auburn placed fourth and Marsh was named 1994 National Coach of the Year. Kurt Jachimowski inspired the Auburn men to a third-place 1995 NCAA finish, as he won the Tigers’ first NCAA individual swimming crown in 14 years. Jachimowski swam away with the 200 IM title and finaled in both backstrokes at the national meet. The Auburn women finished 13th at the 1995 NCAA Championships. At the SEC Championships, Auburn won its second straight men’s team title, while the women were runners-up for the fourth straight year. Although Tennessee ended Auburn’s twoyear hold on the SEC title in February 1996, the Tigers bounced back in March to finish as the national runner-up, placing second at the NCAA Championships in Austin, just 43 points behind homestanding Texas. Auburn’s team of Scott Tucker, Oliver Gumbrill, Brock Newman and Nick Shackell

claimed Auburn its first relay national title since 1980 at the meet, posting a Jamail Swim Center record in the 400 freestyle relay with a blistering 2:52.87 in the final event of the three-day meet. In all, Auburn broke school records in six events (100, 200 back, 200 and 400 medley relay, 100 fly and 100 breast) at the meet. Three Tigers - John Hargis, Scott Tucker and Nick Shackell - were chosen for the 1996 Olympics. Hargis and Tucker for the U.S. team and Shackell for Great Britain. With two swimmers on the U.S. team, and Shackell for Great Britain. With two swimmers on the U.S. team, Marsh was named as an assistant for the men’s team. Hargis and Tucker returned to the Plains with gold medals for their parts in helping the U.S. place first in the 400 medley and 400 free relays, respectively. A young Auburn women’s team rebounded from a fifth-place SEC finish to place 12th at 1995-96 NCAA Championships in Ann Arbor, Mich., giving Auburn swimming fans reason to be optimistic about the both teams’ futures. Auburn’s women’s team continued to progress in 1997 as the Tigers finished second at SECs and seventh at NCAAs, it’s highest finish since 1994. The women had 10 SEC champions, five NCAA champions and 30 All-American honors. It was 1997, that was the year for the Auburn men, as the Tigers claimed Auburn’s first swimming national title and its fourth SEC championship. The men had 15 SEC champions, 17 NCAA champions and 49 All-American honors. In 1999, the Auburn men brought the NCAA title back home by winning four relays and three individual events. All 17 men earned All-America honors, marking the first time in school history this has happened. En route to claiming the second title, Auburn won its third consecutive SEC title, fifth in six years, proving to be a dynasty. It was another first for Auburn swimming in 2002 as the women’s team captured its first NCAA title. The Tigers brought 11 athletes to Austin, Texas for the meet and all 11 brought home All-America honors with junior Maggie Bowen taking seven of her own. Not to be outdone, the AU men also claimed a championship in 2002, bringing home the hardware from the SEC Championships for the sixth consecutive time. As if Auburn hadn’t already reached the pinnacle of the sport, the 2003 season brought an NCAA first with it. Not only 97

did the men win the SEC C championship for the seventh consecutive time, but also the celebratory jump in the pool had the women’s team joining them for the first time post-SEC meet. The season was far from over there, however, as the women’s team successfully defended its title with 50 All-America honors in front of the home crowd. The men then went down to Austin, Texas, and nearly lapped the field, scoring 609.5 points to bring home the men’s team’s third NCAA title. All 19 swimmers that went to the meet scored and the Tigers scored in all 21 events. The notability of the double wins was compounded by the fact that no combined coaching staff had ever won a men’s and women’s title in the same season - until Marsh and Co. did it. At the 2004 Olympics, a total of 12 Auburn swimmers competed, bringing home an Auburn record-tying five medals, including the first three Olympic medals by an Auburn female as Kirsty Coventry took home a gold, silver and bronze. That went along wtih five world records that the men’s team set at the 2004 NCAA Championships and the nine combined NCAA records from the men and women at both national and SEC Championships. On the collegiate front, Marsh did what no one thought was possible for the second

straight season in 2004 2004, sweeping the men’s and women’s NCAA crowns. In 2005, the Auburn men captured its third consecutive national title and ninth straight SEC title. For third straight year, both the AU men and women won the SEC titles. The women’s NCAA Championship in 2006 will go down in school and NCAA history as one of the most exciting meets ever. In a down-to-the-wire championship, the Tigers came out on top by a mere three points over Georgia, in the Bulldogs’ home pool, to take their fourth NCAA crown. A week later and for the third time under Marsh, the men were able to duplicate the women’s title and take their sixth NCAA victory. It also marked another milestone for four Auburn senior men - George Bovell, Kurt Cady, Eric Shanteau and Doug Van Wie - would conclude their careers having never lost a dual, conference or NCAA meet. The Auburn men continued the team’s streak in 2007, winning its fifth-consecutive NCAA Championship in Minneapolis, Minn., winning by 169 points over Stanford. Auburn tallied seven individual titles and a team-record 65 All-America honors en route to its fifth-straight championship, the longest run since Indiana won six in a row

Brett Hawke swam on Auburn’s first two NCAA Championship teams in 1997 and 1999. He went on to compete in two Olympiads in 2000 (Sydney) and 2004 (Athens) for his native Australia before returning to the Plains in 2006 as an assistant coach. Hawke quickly took to coaching as he coached Cesar Cielo to gold and bronze medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

from 1968-73. Cesar Cielo highlighted the week, earning NCAA Swimmer of the Year honors. The Tigers also picked up another SEC championship along the way, earning 11 individual titles in Lexington, Ky. The men’s title made it a clean sweep after the women’s team had earned its second consecutive NCAA Championship, fifth in the team’s history, the week before. The women came from behind on the final day, erasing a 32-point deficit to Arizona to win by 58 points. The Tigers won four individual titles while earning 57 All-America honors for the win. The national title came a month to the day after the women also picked up another SEC Championship. The 2007-08 season saw the end to the NCAA runs for the Auburn squads, but the Tigers were able to to extend their SEC titles runs while also making a statement on the international stage. Auburn’s women could not keep up with Arizona at the NCAA Championships, scoring 348 points to the Wildcats’ 484. The men had a similar experience a week later, tallying 316 points and finishing fifth behind NCAA champion Arizona and its 500.5 points. Ava Ohlgren took the NCAA title in the 400 IM to lead the women’s team while Cielo set new U.S. Open and NCAA records in the 50 free and 100 free.

Now that the Tigers had silenced any critics of continued Auburn dominance in the conference, it was time to move on to the big dance. Auburn had won five straight national titles from 2003-07 but saw their streak snapped in 2008 with a disappointing fifth-place showing. Quickly setting the tone for fans and competitors alike, the Tigers hit a new US Open record time in the 200 freestyle relay. Auburn trailed Stanford by two-tenths going into the anchor. Targett left the block and it was all but over. The two-time Olympic medalist stormed passed David Dunford (18.52), clocking an 18.19 and earning Auburn a new NCAA and US Open record time of 1:14.08. Stanford placed second, hitting the wall in 1:14.22. “People thought we peaked at SECs,” said Hawke after day one of NCAAs. “We knew as a team we hadn’t. We knew, coming into this, it was going to be a dogfight the whole way. We feel like we have a team that can contend. We have to prove ourselves to be champions. There are still two days to do that. I feel pretty good about where we’re at right now.” On the 1-meter springboard, junior Kelly Marx set the all-time Auburn six-dive record en route to a sixth-place finish, earning the Tigers 13 valuable points. The Overland Park, native topped the 3-year-old record, scoring 386.80. Marx surpassed the 382.80 mark set by Steve Segerlin at the 2008 NCAA Championships. Auburn concluded day one with 141 points, trailing only Texas with 171. Behind Auburn were Stanford (130), Florida (107) and Cal (103).

Norys claimed the first men’s 100 backstroke title in school history, setting the pace for a strong Auburn showing on day two of the 2009 NCAA Championships. Auburn relay set another US Open Record on Friday while junior Kelly Marx and sophomore Adam Klein set new school records to edge the Tigers closer to the Texas Longhorn’s top-spot. “I knew it was a close race and when I turned at the 50,” said Norys. “I saw someone ahead of me. I just tried to get my hand there first. It was great having two other teammates with me in the race, because we practice and train together. It was nice to win my first individual Gold Medal. It was a proud moment to be up on the awards stand in the top spot. “

The team celebrating the win with Richard Quick.

McGill led the Tigers with a second-place finish in the 100 fly, setting a new Auburn record of 44.63 in the process. Madson took third with a new career-best time of 44.99. The Tigers took a total of 38 points from the 100 fly, cutting the Texas lead to 225-219. Stanford trailed close behind with 204. Auburn earned 48 points in the 100 back, retaking second place from Stanford to trail Texas, 305-297. Stanford was in third with 265. Only 3-meter springboard finals and the 800 FR remained on the day’s itinerary. Marx set another Auburn record off the 3-meter springboard, earning a 454.85 as the Auburn divers looked to chip away at the Texas lead. Marx shattered the previous record of 427.80 set by Steve Segerlin on Feb. 3, 2007. “I am speechless,” said Marx. “I was excited when I finished second in the preliminaries, but to do it here tonight and set a school record is incredible. It has been hard this year, but I feel like I am peaking at the right time. I have taken it dive by dive and the consistency has paid off.” The Tigers entered Saturday’s final session six points behind the Longhorns, however a strong preliminary swim gave Auburn the upper hand entering the finals. Trailing Texas by as many as 62 points on day two, Auburn took the lead for good following sophomore Klein’s school-record setting performance in the 200 breast, where he finished fourth. Auburn grabbed a one point advantage after the event and never looked back. Saturday’s finals began with the AU backstrokers, who continued their dominant display, putting the Tigers seven points back of the Longhorns with a 44-point effort. Wollach led the way for Auburn, hitting the wall in 1:39.65 for a fourth-place finish worth 15 points. The Tigers earned 36 points in the 200 fly and extended their lead to 473-436, behind senior Madson (1:41.70) who finished third. McGill (1:42.44) followed in fifth while sophomore Robert Looney (1:42.76) hit a new personal-best time to place 11th. Auburn capped the championship, winning the 400 free relay behind the A foursome of Andkjaer, Targett, Norys and McGill, who turned in a time of fo fo 2:46.67. 2 “To “ win a national championship is an incredible feeling that I can’t begin to describe,” said Madson. “To start at Auburn as a champion and finish my career as a champion is incredible. That is exactly why I came to Auburn.” c Auburn finished the meet with 526 points, 39 ahead of second place Texas. A Quick, who is the first coach to win a national title at three schools, is Q battling an inoperable brain tumor that was diagnosed in December 2008. b Quick was not in College Station for the championships, as the Tigers were Q directed by assistant Brett Hawke who has led the program since Quick’s d diagnosis. d “This is just a great way to finish the meet,” Hawke said. “It’s a great tribute “ t Richard Quick and what he means to this program” to Over the course of his 31 year coaching career, Quick won seven national O at Stanford and five at Texas to accompany his first at Auburn. ttitles ti i - by Gary Thorne, Auburn Media Relations

2007 WOMEN’S NCAA CHAMPIONS It took a total team effort, but the 200607 Auburn women’s swimming and diving team mounted a final-day comeback to pick up its second NCAA Championship and fifth in the past six years. The Tigers overcame a 32-point deficit to Arizona in the final day, finishing with a 58-point victory. All 19 Auburn swimmers and divers that competed earned at least one All-America honor, combining for 55 honors during the three-day meet. The 19 individuals to earn All-American status is a new Auburn record, surpassing the previous mark of 18 set in 2004 and 2006, while the 57 total All-American awards ranks second best in a single championship meet for the Auburn women. “It unbelievable,” said senior co-captain Adrienne Binder. “I never knew that I could be this emotional about it. I am so proud of this 2007 Auburn Titles team and I couldn’t be happier right now. It’s • Adrienne Binder been the most amazing experience and we’ve been through so much this year. It couldn’t 500 Free have gone any better. It’s perfect.” • Hayley Peirsol Co-head coach Dorsey Tierney-Walker, 1650 Free who earned NCAA Coach of the Year honors along with David Marsh, was also impressed • Rachel Goh with the way her team finished. 100 Back “The girls surprised even me, and I don’t get surprised very often,” said Tierney-Walker. • Ava Ohlgren “What a total team effort each session. The 400 IM way we came out and just got better and better every session says something. This team has been through some challenges this year, and I think it’s made them stronger as individuals and stronger as a unit. It certainly showed this weekend, and it’s by far the best this team has every swum. I couldn’t be more proud.” The Tigers started off the meet in second place after the first day of competition with 155 points, 13 behind Arizona. Binder earned her 11th career All-American honor but first national championship by dominating the 500 free, smashing her own school record with a mark of 4:36.96. Hayley Peirsol and Maggie Bird piled it on for the Tigers, finishing behind Binder in fourth and seventh, respectively. Freshman Ava Ohlgren had a great finish to her first NCAA event, finishing runnerup in the 200 IM with a time of 1:55.67, foreshadowing things to come for her in the NCAA Championships. In the opening day relays, Auburn finished fourth in the 200 free relay and sixth in the 400 medley relay. After picking up one individual title in the first day, Auburn added to it with two more in the second day. The Tigers, who set four school records and had individual victories from Ohlgren in the 400 IM and Rachel Goh in the 100 back, trailed Arizona by 32 points entering the final day of competition. Ohlgren, seeded 13th entering the meet, stunned defending champion Whitney Myers of Arizona by shattering her personal best with a school-record time of 4:04.08. Ohlgren, whose best mark of the season entering the meet was 4:15.01, broke the previous Auburn record of 4:04.48 set by Kirsty Coventry in 2005. “I didn’t really know what to expect, but I was really happy with the outcome,” said Ohlgren. “I just tried to go out there and swim my race. Our coaches told us to just go out there and get our personal best times and do what we can, and that’s what I did.” Ohlgren was not the only swimmer who excelled in the 400 IM, as Julie Stupp set a personal best with a time of 4:07.32 to finish fourth, while Binder placed sixth with a time of 4:10.08. Goh repeated as NCAA champion in the 100 back, breaking another school record set by Coventry in 2005. Goh, whose previous best was 52.34 set while winning the SEC title in February, raced to a time of 51.97, bettering Coventry’s mark of 52.32. “It was really exciting for me,” said Goh. “Of course I wanted to defend my title. But I swim my races not for myself but for the other 19 girls on the team. I rely on them and they rely on me.” 2007 NCAA Results 1. Auburn 535 2. Arizona 477 3. California 372.5 4. Stanford 333 5.

Rachel Goh earned her second-consecutive NCAA 100 back title in 2007.

Ava Ohlgren captured the 400 IM title. Melissa Marik kept things rolling for Auburn as she surprised the field by making the 100 back final after being seeded 44th. She went on to finish eighth with a time of 53.82. Emily Kukors broke her own school record in the 200 free that she had set during the prelims when she posted the fastest qualifying time of 1:43.96. Although she improved to 1:43.72 in the finals, she was edged by Arizona’s Lacey Nymeyer, who won in 1:43.49. Kukors finished third overall. In the night’s relays, Auburn just missed another title, finishing second in the 800 free relay with another school-record time of 7:01.05, breaking the previous school mark by .06 seconds. The Tigers trailed California by more than three seconds after two legs, but Kukors exploded for a 1:43.39 split, making up more than four seconds on Cal’s swimmer and giving Auburn the lead. Binder was edged during the last 50 yards as Cal won by just .16 seconds. In the 200 medley relay, the team of Goh, Kara Denby, Margo McCawley and Kukors swam a season-best time of 1:38.06 to finish third. Lynnsey Segraves led Auburn in the 3-meter diving, reaching a championship final for the first time in her career. The senior posted a personal-best score of 347.90 to finish sixth. “That was really exciting and rewarding to watch,” said head diving coach Jeff Shaffer. “A senior in her last NCAA championships stepping up and making her first final, and then competing to the best of her ability. I couldn’t be happier for Lynnsey.” After trailing in second the first two days of the meet, it was all Auburn on the final day. The finals session started with a bang for Auburn, as the Tigers took the top two spots and had four of the top 15 in the 1650 free. Peirsol defended her NCAA title in the 1650, breaking her own school record with a time of 15:45.92. Peirsol raced to an early lead and lapped much of the field, cruising to victory by more than seven seconds. Her nearest competitor was Binder as she came home in a personal-best time of 15:53.44 to earn the silver. “I wanted to go out with a bang,” said Peirsol. “During the whole race, I was just thinking `Suck it up for a little over 15 minutes.’ We have put in the work this year. We have worked hard and NCAAs is just the fun part. This is where all of the work pays off.” Haser finished in ninth place with a time of 16:12.85, and Bird was 15th in 16:18.03 as the Tigers rolled up 48 points in the event to erase the 32-point deficit to Arizona and take over first place in the team standings after just one final. In the next event, the 200 back, Auburn’s depth helped add to the lead, as the Tigers placed five swimmers in the top 16. Marik led the way for the Tigers as she swam in the championship final, finishing eighth in 1:56.69. The Tigers had two of the top five finishers in the 100 free, as Denby placed fourth in 48.07 seconds, just .03 shy of her school record from the prelims, and Kukors was fifth in 48.40 seconds. Auburn then placed three swimmers in the top 10 of the 200 breast, expanding the lead to more than 50 points and securing the team title with two finals left. Kristen Hastrup led the way with a fifth-place finish in 1:55.90, while Ohlgren added to her stellar meet with a seventh-place finish in 1:56.343, earning the fifth of her six All-American honors for the meet, tying her for second most by a freshman in school history. In the platform diving competition, Lynnsey Segraves just missed a spot in the championship final with a ninth-place finish in the prelims and a score of 272.60. But she bounced back in a big way, setting a school record with a score of 300.05 to win the consolation final. “What a great way for her to end her career, with a consolation win and a new school record breaking 300 points,” said head diving coach Jeff Shaffer. “I’m real proud of her effort today and real proud of the performances by both Lynnsey and Corey (Gerlach) at this years NCAAs. I’m glad we could contribute to the team effort.” The Tigers capped off the meet with a fourth-place finish in the 400 free relay, as the team of Denby, Ohlgren, Marik and Kukors finished with a time of 3:15.35. It was not as quick as their mark from the prelims, but with victory assured, it hardly seemed to matter. For outgoing head coach David Marsh, the win marked the 11th national championship his career. “Sending out David in his final women’s meet with a victory was very, very important to this group,” said Tierney-Walker. “It was very well-deserved for David and I wouldn’t want to send him out any other way.” - by Brad Gust and Matt Crouch, Auburn Media Relations

Auburn scored 187 points on the first day of the NCAA Championships to take the lead and never looked back as the Tigers led wireto-wire to win their fifth consecutive national championship. “This is probably my third, fourth or fifth most talented team,” said head coach David Marsh, who coached his last meet as Auburn’s head coach. “But we’ve never had a better meet top to bottom. “Our team has made this year very special. I really just enjoy this team. There are so many great individuals, and I could go down story by story and tell you how they have gone from rags to riches, including all three of our captains. This group has a lot of depth that involves were they have come from and what they have gone through.” Auburn kept the momentum going on the second day to lead by more than 100 points heading into the final day of competition. A dominating day-three performance gave the Tigers 566 total points, topping Stanford, the nearest competition, by 169 points. The Tigers’ domination was evident based on the awards presented following the meet. Marsh was named NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming Coach of the Year, Jeff Shaffer was named NCAA Division I Men’s Diving Coach of the Year, Cesar Cielo was the NCAA Division I Men’s Swimmer of the Year and Steven Segerlin was named NCAA Division I Men’s Diver of the Year. The Tigers did not wait until the final day, though, before getting the excitement started as Cielo broke the 50 free record on the opening day to become the fastest swimmer in the world. Cielo swam 50 yards faster than anyone has ever done before, and more impressively, he did it twice in less than an hour. Cielo posted matching times of 18.69 to win the 50 free and leading off the record-setting 200 free relay as Auburn took a 66-point lead after the

opening day. Cielo broke the NCAA and US Open records held by former Tiger Fred Bousquet, who had a time of 18.74 in the prelims of the 50 free at the 2005 meet, which was also held in Minneapolis. Prior to Thursday, Bosquet was the only man who had ever swum 50 yards in less than 19 seconds, but Cielo did it four times in one day. He had times of 18.84 and 18.89 during the prelims in the 50 free and 200 free relay, respectively. The Tigers started the evening session by repeating as champions in the 200 free relay, and they did it impressively. Cielo teamed with Matt Targett, Scott Goodrich and Bryan Lundquist, who all swam sub-19 second splits, to smash the NCAA and U.S. Open records with a time of 1:14.71. Their time was more than one second faster than the old record of 1:15.78 set by California in 2005, which stood until the Tigers posted a mark of 1:15.56 in the prelims. Less than an hour later, Auburn scored 70 points in the 50 free by placing five swimmers in the top nine. Cielo and Goodrich also helped Auburn finish third in the 400 medley relay to conclude the opening night. Goodrich led off and Cielo anchored, with David Maras and Alexei Puninski swimming the middle legs as Auburn clocked a time of 3:06.09. Auburn also received valuable points from its divers, as Segerlin finished third and Kelly Marx sixth on the 1-meter board. The Auburn swimming and diving team inched closer to its fifth straight NCAA Men’s Swimming and Diving on day two as it stretched its lead to 102 points entering the final day of competition. The Tigers used a combination of depth, diving and relay

speed to widen their margin, which stood at 66 points after day one. Auburn’s team of Goodrich, Maras, Puninski and Cielo posted a time of 1:23.37, easily breaking the old NCAA mark of 1:23.88 set by Arizona in 2006. It marked the fifth time that Auburn has won the 200 medley relay since 1997. Auburn’s lone individual victory of the day came from Segerlin, who won his second career NCAA title and first on the 3-meter board. Segerlin won the event with a score of 401.50. Dan Mazzaferro finished 11th overall on the 3-meter board after posting a score of 352.40. “It feels awesome to win an NCAA title on a springboard event,” said Segerlin. “At Auburn, platform has always been our big focus, but Jeff (Shaffer) is an amazing coach in both springboard and platform. Coming to college I never dreamed I’d win a title on springboard.” The Tigers added to their lead with three finalists in the 100 fly. Targett broke the school record that Alexei Puninski had set during the Steve Segerlin captured the threeprelims and finished third with a time of meter and platform titles 45.87, besting Puninski’s prelim mark of 46.19. Puninski improved to 46.06 to finish fifth, while Jakob Andkjaer placed eighth with a time of 46.76. In the 100 back, James Wike matched his prelim time of 46.87 to finish fifth place in the finals. Bryan Lundquist finished eighth in 46.97 while Gooodrich finished second in the consolation final to place 10th overall, with a time of 47.33, and Cielo placed 16th with a time of 48.23. In the 100 breast, Jon Roberts finished in sixth place with a time of 53.01 as Maras won the consolation final to place ninth overall with a time of 52.94. Auburn also had a sixth-place finish in the 800 free relay, as the team of Andkjaer, Lundquist, Tyler McGill and Joey Schneider finished with a time of 6:24.80. The Tigers left little doubt in the final day of the meet, essentially clinching the team title during prelims by advancing 11 swimmers and three divers into the finals while already holding a 102-point lead. Auburn, which set five NCAA records during the meet, finished with 566 points. Although Auburn’s sprinters grabbed much of the spotlight, it was a total team effort that earned the Tigers the title. Eighteen different individuals combined for 64 All-American honors during the three-day event. The 64 All-American honors was a new school record, while the 18 individuals to be honored was second best in school history. Cielo highlighted the evening by putting his name atop the NCAA record book for the fourth and fifth times during the meet. Cielo started his evening by setting a new NCAA record in the 100 free with a winning time of 41.17 seconds, breaking the old mark of 41.49 set by Duje Draganja of California in 2005 while becoming only the second Auburn swimmer to win the 100 free, joining Rowdy Gaines, who won the event in 1980 and 1981. He also became the first Tiger ever to win the 50 free and 100 free at the same NCAA meet. Targett finished sixth in the 100 free in 42.71 seconds, while Andkjaer won the consolation final in 42.67 seconds to place ninth overall. Lundquist placed 13th in 43.01 seconds and Goodrich finished 16th in 43.87. Cielo also helped Auburn wrap up the meet by winning the 400 free relay with yet another NCAA record. The group of Andkjaer, Cielo, Targett and Lundquist sped to a time of 2:46.56, smashing the previous mark of 2:47.70 set by California in 2005. Segerlin capped a terrific collegiate career by winning his second diving title of the meet and third of his career, defending his title in the platform competition. Segerlin, who finished his Auburn career with 11 All-American honors, recorded a score of 414.90 to edge Arizona State’s Michele Benedetti by less than three points. “I was a little shook up after I missed my second and third dives,” said Segerlin. “But Jeff Shaffer worked with me over the summer to increase my degree of difficulty. I knew if I stayed solid in my more difficult dives I could get back in the game, and that’s what happened.” Two freshmen also reached the platform finals as Marx finished in sixth place with a score of 352.35 to earn his second All-American honor, while Mazzaferro finished in eighth place on the platform with a score of 332.05. Scott and Logan Madson were impressive in the 200 fly, both breaking their personal bests for the second time of the day. Scott finished second in 1:43.47, which ranks second in school history, while Madson improved to 1:43.97, finishing in fourth place. McGill placed 11th by clocking a time of 1:45.04 in the consolation finals. In the 200 back, Wike was not able to match his personal best time of 1:41.93 from the prelims, but still finished in sixth place with a time of 1:42.92, bettering his eighth place performance from last year’s NCAA meet. Roberts finished 15th in the 200 breast with a time of 1:57.37, while Osborne placed 16th in 1:58.62. - by Brad Gust and Matt Crouch, Auburn Media Relations


2006 WOMEN’S NCAA CHAMPIONS The 2005-06 Tigers were ready for a battle at the NCAA Championships and were dressed accordingly in blue fatigues. As the No. 2 ranked team all season behind host-Georgia, the pressure was finally off the Tigers, after being the team to beat for the previous four years. “We know we are the underdogs coming in,” junior Hayley Peirsol said. “There isn’t any pressure on us. It is just fun. It is just swimming for us.” Even with the pressure supposedly off, the Tigers were still in pursuit of their fourth NCAA title in the last five years and winning would mean snapping Georgia’s 50 straight victories in Gabrielsen Natatorium. Auburn 2006 Auburn Titles had 17 swimmers and two divers competing • Rachel Goh (the only team in the nation to qualify a full 100 Back squad), two more than Georgia and three more than No. 3 Arizona. • Hayley Peirsol Of the six events contested on day one, 1650 Free five of them were won by Arizona or Georgia competitors. Arizona, who according to the official psyche sheet, was not expected to finish in the top-five saw themselves in the lead after wins in the 200 free relay, 200 IM and 400 medley relay. It was an orange and blue clad 500 free final as three AU competitors graced the field of eight, each posting lifetime best swims in the morning prelims. Peirsol lowered her career best in the final to grab the runner up spot with a time of 4:41.78. Adrienne Binder ended up fourth and Chelsea Haser seventh as the trio earned 44 points in that event alone. The Tigers kept mounting up the points in the 200 IM with Emily Kukors in third, Julie Stupp in seventh and Lauren Duerk in ninth. In the 500 free and 200 IM alone, the Tigers racked up 54 percent of their day one point total. At the end of the first day, AU trailed Arizona by 10 and led Georgia by four points. Day two opened with a disappointing fifth place finish in the 200 medley relay, but sophomore Julie Stupp sparked energy in her Tiger team as she battled to a runner-up finish in the 400 IM (4:09.22) and was surrounded by two teammates in the championship final. In the next three events Georgia outscored Auburn by 90 points and controlled the leader board and the top spot on the podium. Bulldog stars Kara Lynn Joyce and Mary DeScenza continued to thrive in their home pool, each picking up an NCAA individual title on day two. The Tigers would save the best for last on day two in the remaining two individual events events, 100 back and 3-meter diving. After nearly two days of competition, the Tigers finally crowned their first national champion of the meet as freshman Rachel Goh became the first Auburn female to win the NCAA 100 back title. Following Goh’s triumphant performance, classmate Corey Gerlach garnered the attention on 3-meter springboard. With each dive Gerlach improved and ended up third, the highest finish for any Tiger freshman on 3-meter. With one day remaining Auburn found themselves trailing the Bulldogs by 53 points. The Tigers would have to pull off their best final day ever to have a shot at the national crown. The battle for the title would begin in morning prelims. On Saturday morning the gamefaces were on and the letters “YAHM” were 2006 NCAA Results 1. Auburn 518.5 2. Georgia 515.5 3. Arizona 415 4. California 291 5. Stanford 209 6. Southern Cal 193 7.

proudly displayed on every woman. The letters stood for, “You Always Have More,” and the Tigers would live up to that slogan as they returned every swimmer from the prelims to finals and consols (Georgia had just seven). “They were sky high after the morning session,” Marsh said. “They rode that momentum right into the finals.” The night started off with a bang from the distance free trio of Peirsol, Binder and Haser. Peirsol became Auburn’s first national champion in the 1650 free and teammates Binder and Chelsea were third and 13th, respectively. The 40 points from the 1650 free helped move the Tigers within 33 points of UGA. After 39 points from the 200 back compared to Georgia’s 17, Auburn pulled within reach, needing just 11 points to tie with five events remaining. It wouldn’t take long for Auburn to pull even with Georgia after mounting 31 points from three competitors in the 100 free, even though UGA’s Joyce was the overall winner. En route to evening the slate at 436, Kukors broke a three-year old AU record in the 100 free (48.52) to finish fourth. Auburn opened up a 469.5-447.5 advantage after the 200 breast, a race in which newcomer Alicia Jensen would put it all on the line and take third, breaking the oldest AU record on the books (2:10.81). Georgia pulled within five after DeScenza won the 200 fly and another competitor fifth, even though AU had three swimmers in consol’s. With the gap so close and only the 400 free relay remaining, only one thing was certain- the team race would come down to the final event. If you owned a calculator in those finals minutes leading up to the 400 free relay, the keys were probably overworked. After the numbers were tabulated, the scenario played out as follows: for AU to win they would need to finish third or better and have Arizona finish in front of Georgia. For UGA to defend its championship, only one scenario would lend that end result - win the relay. Georgia led after DeScenza’s first leg but Arizona’s Jenna Gresdal passed Tricia Harm to take a .80 lead on UGA after the second leg (AU in third). The Wildcats increased the lead by 1.12 after a strong third leg by Whitney Meyers. It would come down to the anchor - Lacey NyMeyer versus superstar Joyce. Both swam a blistering final leg and Joyce pulled within reach of NyMeyer with less than 25 yards to go, but NyMeyer would stretch in for the win and the Tigers would end up third, in the relay that is. “When we hit the wall, there was pandemonium,” Marsh said. “The entire building knew what was at stake.” As the Tigers rejoiced in their fourth national title, senior Jeri Moss was reassuring anchor Kukors that indeed the Tigers had pulled off the miracle - they had won the battle. “The passion, heart, fire and everything that went into that championship was wrapped up on my teammates faces at the end of the meet,” Moss commented. In the second-closet margin of victory in the 25 years of the women’s NCAA Championships, the Tigers stood first on the podium with 518.5 points , just three ahead of Georgia. With tears in their eyes and smiles as wide as their faces would allow, the 2006 Auburn women’s team knew they have pulled off the impossible and were part of a very special moment in Tiger swimming and diving championship history. “I have never experienced anything that thrilling,” Marsh said. “It wasn’t just the last relay, it was the last day. That is the best day we have ever had in Auburn swimming.” - by Carol White, Auburn Media Relations

2006 MEN’S NCAA CHAMPIONS The number 10 was significant for the 2005-06 Auburn men’s swimming and diving team. Ten represents the number of fingers 480.5 that head coach David Marsh proudly dis440.5 plays championship rings. Ten is the golden 362.5 number of national championships that the 307 2005-06 Tigers helped bring home to The Plains. 268.5 The four-man senior class of George 250.5 Bovell, Kurt Cady, Eric Shanteau and Doug 223 Van Wie have an endless list of accolades, 209 including Olympic medalist, NCAA Champi197 on, SEC Champion and All-American. One more honor stood within reach in 2005-06, 183.5 an honor that no one before them had been able to accomplish - go undefeated in 2006 Auburn Titles every category. • George Bovell The Tigers, who sported a No. 1 ranking 200 FR the entire season, entered the 1996 Olympic pool in Atlanta, Ga., looking to extend • Cesar Cielo their streak to four. Marsh wanted his team 200 FR to get out to a strong early start and that is • Bryan Lundquist exactly how the story played out. 200 FR The Auburn 200 free relay team of Cesar • Steve Segerlin Cielo, Matt Targett, Bryan Lundquist and Bovell, came out roaring on the opening Platform night finals. The quartet captured the title • Matt Targett in 1:16.15 and got the ball rolling in the 200 FR Tigers direction. Keeping the momentum going was the 400 medley relay who finished as runner-up. The Tigers held a 42 point lead over Arizona with two critical days remaining. “It has been way too long since we have won a relay,” Marsh said. “It was nice to see us get back on the top of the podium in a relay and it was thrilling for the team. It creates a lot of momentum and excitement for the rest of our team.” Arizona came out blazing on day two and slowly chipped away at the Tigers lead. The Wildcats 200 medley relay started the night off with a NCAA record-breaking performance (1:23.88) and the Tigers had to settle for second. Shanteau duplicated his third-place finish in the 400 IM and Alexei Puninski, just 30 minutes after swimming the fly leg on the 200 medley relay, finished seventh in the 100 fly. The Wildcats caught the Tigers in the fifth event of day two, the 100 breast, as AU had no one swimming in the event, while Arizona had one in the finals and one in consols. This effort helped boost the Wildcats to a one-point deficit with three events remaining. In the 100 back,Van Wie turned in a stunning 46.22 performance, to take second (just .30 off the title) as he was out-stretched by Northwestern’s Matt Grevers. All eyes would turn to the diving well where Steve Segerlin would finish third in the 3-meter final with a score of 401.20 to put Auburn ahead by seven points going into the 800 free relay. After a pool record 6:16.67 by the Wildcats in the 800 free relay and a sixth place finish by AU in the event, Arizona sat atop the leader board by five points with one day to go. “Arizona had the magic tonight,” Marsh said. “They were just on fire.

Co-captain Eric Shanteau guided the squad to its fourth-straight NCAA title night is going to be a knock-down, drag-out. Their strength is their quality, our strength is our depth.” The Tigers found themselves in somewhat unfamiliar territory. Never in any of the other five championship meets had the Tigers ever trailed at the end of day one or two. The lesson that Marsh and his staff stressed throughout the year - team championships are won in the morning sessions - would be the theme of the final day. “If we come in in the morning and get five, six, hopefully seven into the finals,” Marsh said, “we will be in good shape. It is in the teams hands.” Auburn’s showed its strength in numbers, qualifying seven individuals (five more in consols) and a relay for the Saturday night showdown. The Tigers all but assured itself a victory by qualifying more swimmers than Arizona. The 100 free finals would be the showcase event of the finals as five AU swimmers would decorate the finals and consols. With the team lead there for the taking, the Tigers wasted no time in recapturing the top position. In the second event (200 back),Van Wie and James Wike produced 23 points to give Auburn the advantage, an advantage that they would never lose again. In the premier event of the evening, the 100 free, Auburn got three swimmers in the consols to outscore Arizona 13-0. The Tigers then split with the Wildcats in the finals as Cielo took fourth and Targett seventh, all but cancelling out a third-place finish by Arizona’s Simon Burnett and a fifth-place finish by Wildcat Lyndon Ferns. The Tigers and Wildcats each put one in the 200 breast finals but the difference came in the 200 fly as Auburn had two competitors in consols and one in the finals and Arizona had no qualifiers in either. With two events remaining and 26.5 separating the two teams, Auburn looked poised for its sixth overall team crown. And it didn’t hurt that the 10-meter platform, where Segerlin was in position for the win, was up next. After a record-breaking 469.30 points in the platform finals, Segerlin took all suspense out of the race for the team title. Segerlin’s victory marked the fourth straight year an Auburn man has been crowned champion on platform. “It feels awesome coming from a really long line of NCAA champions at Auburn,” Segerlin said. “This is the best performance in Auburn history,” Auburn head diving coach Jeff Shaffer said. “We talked about being focused and confident and having the courage to step up and most importantly to have fun. We had nothing to lose, our swimmers took care of business, and this was bonus points for the team.” In the final event, Arizona continued to dominate the relays as they claimed the 400 free relay (the Wildcats won four of the five relays, Auburn won the other) and Auburn was second. The points didn’t matter - the 10th finger was filled. “Today it feels really good, like a relief,” Marsh said. “It is such an intense meet from top to bottom. This men’s team in particular has come from everywhere and it took all year to bring this team together. The last two months I saw synergy happening within our team and you have to have that at this meet to be successful.” Team mission, check. Senior mission, check. Bovell, Cady, Shanteau and Van Wie concluded their storybook four-year careers with a 31-0 dual meet record and four SEC and NCAA team titles. This senior class alone put together 13 SEC titles and six NCAA titles to go along with 56 All-American honors. “There is no other way that this senior class wanted to go out,” co-captain Shanteau said. Strength in numbers said it all for the 2006 team and Marsh will no longer have to drive home the importance of the morning sessions. For everyone in attendance at the 2006 championships, we all can walk away knowing that team titles are earned in the a.m. - By Carol White, Auburn Media Relations

Auburn’s quest for their third straight national title began much more quietly than the first two did. There was no individual title on night one. Nor was there a relay that was first to the wall. But there was a sense of urgency, and a feeling of togetherness that allowed the Tigers to own the day one lead. “The competition is great here. It is at a world-class level. The ladies are improving toward that level, and that is what we are focusing on right now, making one step forward instead of big jumps forward,” Marsh said after the first night. “They are itching to win events but the goal is to accumulate points to win the championship. We are going to have to fight throughout the three days to be our best. It is not going to come easy” Day two was junior Margaret Hoelzer’s day to shine. The girl from Huntsville, Ala., raced in four events on Friday night, collecting a first- and second-place finish in her two individual events while also swimming on a record-setting relay and the final relay of the night as the Tigers continued to 2004 NCAA Results 1.

increase their lead. Auburn and Hoelzer picked up their first NCAA title of the year in the first event of the night, swimming to a new NCAA and US Open Record in the 200 medley relay. Hoelzer, who was seeded seventh and raced in lane one of the 200 free, took her first individual crown with a NCAA-record time of 1:56.16. Hoelzer had the fastest split on every leg in the field but the last and was the lone swimmer to have every split under 30 seconds. Hoelzer finished her individual night by leading the Tiger charge in the 100 backstroke as the junior stroked to a second- place finish. The Tigers’ final relay of night two produced a fourth-place finish as the AU quartet of Kirsty Coventry, Heather Kemp, Adrienne Binder and Hoelzer combined for the 800 freestyle relay. “To be honest, I was pretty tired by the time the 800 rolled around,” Hoelzer said. “It was a huge race and you don’t have a chance to think about your own feelings.You have to do what’s best for the team and suck it up and try to take one for the team.” Coventry capped off the championships by taking the crown in the 200 backstroke. “It was a good race, probably my best race of the whole meet,” Coventry said. “I just wanted to go out there and have fun and that is exactly what I did. It just all came together for me tonight.” The Auburn senior class closed out their collegiate swimming careers in style, racking up a total of 569 points, the most in program history and the highest total at the NCAA Championships since 1993. “We are very thrilled and honored to come out of here with a victory,” AU Coach David Marsh said. “What I think you saw during this meet was really truly how many awesome swimmers there are in the NCAAs. One of the things I tell my team is that when you win a swimming title, you are competing in the highest level athletic venue in collegiate sports. To win a team title is very special and different every time.” “All season we have trained real hard and it has always been our goal to win three in a row,” Demerae Christianson said on behalf of the senior class. “It just feels good to get the job done and to celebrate not with just the senior class, but the whole team. It is just so special. Hopefully we have left something behind for the team next year.” - By Dan Froehlich, Auburn Media Relations, and Susan Storey, Birmingham News

Best Ever. That is how the 2004 Auburn men’s swimming and diving team will go down in history. The Tigers, led by a group of four young men who went by the catchphrase of ‘Auburn’s Four Horsemen’, literally went out and re-wrote the NCAA record books. And they did it six times over. Fred Bousquet - or ‘Freddy Biscuits’ as he came to be known around the pool deck - and his compatriots George ‘The Hammer of Justice’ Bovell, Ryan ‘The Diesel’ Wochomurka and Derek ‘The Big Man’ Gibb set the tone for the Tigers from the get go, stroking to a world-best time in the events first race, the 200 free relay. Record one set. Bovell returned to the pool two events later and successfully dropped the hammer on the field in the 200 IM, defending his title from 2003 and doing it in a new world record time. “I felt a lot of pressure which I put on myself,” Bovell said after his nighttime swim. “I probably would have never forgiven myself after coming so close (to a world record this morning) and not accomplishing it.”

Record two set. One event later, it was Bousquet’s turn to defend his title in the 50 free. Considered the most exciting race in all of swimming, Bousquet sliced the water to his first individual world record - and this after needing a swim-off to qualify for finals. “I guess I need to be a little mad to swim faster and my teammates knew it so they put me in good condition for the race. Everybody was behind me,” Bousquet said. Record three set. Byy

the end of the first night, the Tigers had already amassed a 98-point lead on the field. But there was still work to be done. Sophomore Doug Van Wie and senior Mark Gangloff were the next to put ‘World’s Best’ next to their name as they joined Bousquet and Gibb in re-writing the record books in the 200 medley relay. Record four set. With two days completed, the Tigers had gained a seemingly insurmountable 186.5-point lead on Caesar Garcia picked up his second-consecutive the field. But there platform title. was still work to be done. They were in search of the title ‘Best Ever.’ Though they didn’t provide themselves with a nickname, the diving trio of Caesar Garcia, Steven Segerlin and Matt Bricker did their part for the team championship as well. After garnering a total of five All-America honors after the first two nights, the trio finished 1-2-6 on the platform, with Garcia becoming the first man to ever successfully defend his platform title. All told, the divers contributed 93 points to the team total. With one event remaining, a first-place finish in the 400 free relay was all that stood between Auburn and the points record. Enter the ‘Four Horsemen’ for their final ride. And ride they did - all the way to a fifth world-best time and a new NCAA points record of 634 points. Records five and six set. “Those four guys are always at their best at the relays and that has characterized my favorite Auburn swimmers, going back to Rowdy (Gaines),Yoav (Bruck) and Nick Shackell. All four of those guys are just like that,” AU Coach David Marsh said of the ‘Four Horsemen.’ “The ‘Four Horsemen’ are just the best guys,” Gibb said. “When you got guys like Fred and George, it just gets everyone going and we weren’t going to look back the rest of the way.” The Tigers had literally lapped the field. Auburn had won the event by 256.5 points. The ‘Four Horsemen’ alone contributed 340 points, beating all but three teams by themselves. “Last year was great but I wanted this one even more,” senior captain Bryce Hunt said. “All year long us seniors tried to lead by example.” And lead they did. - By Dan Froehlich, Auburn Media Relations

2003 WOMEN’S NCAA CHAMPIONS Home sweet home. The only thing sweeter then winning the first women’s National 536 Championship in school history is defend373 ing that title at home. Even though the 284 Tigers went undefeated during the regular 281 season, won their first SEC Championship 277 just three weeks prior and had the number 275.5 one ranking all year long, with the level of 220 competition and being seen as the team to 215 beat the women knew they would have to 209 swim well to win again. 135 “It gives you a certain level of confidence that we swam so well at SEC (Champion2003 Auburn Titles ships), and our times were seeded well. • Jenni Anderson However, like other coaches said there 200 MR have not been a point scored yet in this • Maggie Bowen meet.

In finals the ladies jumped out to a 45.5 point lead after day one with some impressive swims. Bowen and Kirsty Coventry combined to finish 1-2 in the 200 IM.

Enjoying the trophy presentation. Eileen Coparropa kept the momentum going by finishing second and third in the 50 free. With the lead, the ladies wanted to send a message in the evening’s final event: the 400 medley relay. They sent quite a strong message indeed as the team of Coventry, Bowen, Margaret Hoelzer, and Short not only won, but set pool, NCAA, and US Open records with a time of 3:31.45. As day two got underway it was evident that Auburn was the class of the meet. Auburn qualified 12 swimmers for the evening session as well as being the top seed in the 200 medley relay. Leading the way were Bowen, who qualified first and second in the 400 IM and the 100 breast respectively, and Coventry, who qualified first in the 100 back. The sellout hometown crowd did not go away disappointed at the end of the second day as Auburn extended their lead to an impressive 127 point lead with one day to go. In the evenings’ first event, Auburn’s relay team of Jenni Anderson, Laura Swander, Hoelzer, and Short won by nearly two seconds with a time of 1:36.69 once again breaking the pool, NCAA, and US Open record. The victories continued to come as Bowen won the 400 IM for the third consecutive year. Junior Heather Kemp provided the most exciting race of the night, winning her first National Championship by tying North Carolina’s Jessi Perruquet with a time of 1:45.01. The evening’s finale was another Auburn title as the team of Hoelzer, Kemp, Coventry, and Bowen broke the NCAA meet record in the 800 Freestyle relay. The last prelims session saw the women pick up right where they left off the night before. Nine women earned the right to swim again for the final session. Short continued her strong meet by grabbing the top spot in the 100 free. Joining her were two other Tigers, Coparropa, and Kemp. Hoelzer also swam very well qualifying for finals twice, in the 200 back and the 200 fly. The women also had the fastest 400 freestyle relay team Saturday morning. With victory virtually assured the women cemented their second straight NCAA title with another strong session. Coventry and Hoelzer finished second and third in the 200 back to start the last session. Short and Coparropa followed them with another 2-3 Auburn finish highlighted by Short’s school record 48.53 second place. The women finished the meet as they started it by winning yet another relay by dropping over three seconds from their morning swim in a fast 3:14.15. “This is truly a great night for Auburn University,” Auburn athletics director David Housel said. “I am especially proud of our swimmers, coaches and their staff that in the same week that they won the NCAA title, they also were named as an academic AllAmerican team. The fact that David Marsh is a product of the Auburn swim program makes this much more special. It is a great day to be an Auburn Tiger.” With their hometown fans cheering and the anxious men’s team urging them on all weekend, the women finished their season as they had planned all along, with a victory swim and fight song in a pool that they dominated all year long. - By Justin Caron, class of 2003

2003 MEN’S NCAA CHAMPIONS Pressure. With an immeasurable amount of self-inflicted pressure on their collective shoulders, the 609.5 Auburn’s men’s swimming and diving 413 class of 2003 not only answered the 374 bell at the national championships, but 329 they came out with nary a scratch on 268 their faces. 232 Having just watched their women’s 228 counterparts win it all for the second 205 consecutive year, the men’s team 173.5 was determined to head down to 125 Austin, Texas - the exact pool that the women had taken the celebratory 2003 Auburn Titles dip in a year ago - and bring back the • Fred Bousquet one thing the seniors were lacking, an 50 free NCAA title. • George Bovell From the outset the Tigers were on 200 IM fire, trailing in the overall points battle • Caesar Garcia for a total of two events. By the time Platform event three rolled around, freshman George Bovell was ready to leave Auburn’s first mark on the championships. Bovell not only helped move the Tigers to the top of the leader board, but he challenged history, winning the 200 IM in a NCAA and US Open record time of 1:42.66. On event later his classmate did his part as Fred Bousquet - affectionately called Freddy Biscuits by his teammates - swam to his own title, winning the men’s 50 freestyle in a convincing 19.31. The event turned out to be the coming out party for the Tigers as a total of four AU swimmers swam in the championship finals. By the time the curtain came down on day one, the Tigers held a commanding 85-point lead, having corralled 206 points in the first session. Both the 200 IM and the 50 free were titles that the Tigers had last won in 1999, also the last time AU won the overall crown. Day two was more of the same as the Tigers were just three points shy of doubling their lead by the end of the night - not to mention racking up a total of 449 points, just 47.5 points less than what AU had tallied in 1997 when they first won it all, the most points in school history. Night two again started out with fireworks as the Auburn 200 medley relay team of Bryce Hunt, Pat Calhoun, Bousquet and Derek Gibb erased the 2003 NCAA Results 1. Auburn 2. Texas 3. Stanford 4.

Though they NCAA ookks T houggh th ho heyy ccould ou uld d nnot ott cclaim laaim tthe laim he N CAA CA A title, the points-train gathered more steam as the night rolled on. As was the case with the 200 IM the night before, the 400 IM was an Auburn event with three Tigers stroking the walls for points. The culmination of the night - and possibly the championships - was in the 100 breaststroke finals as Auburn Tigers filled four of the eight lanes available. Again the Tigers could not stand atop the podium for the awards ceremony, but the feeling amongst the Tiger bench area was one of significant accomplishment. With the trophy already firmly in their grasp, diver Caesar Garcia brought Auburn its first diving title in 16 years. With twists and turns and flips and reverses, Garcia scored a 575.80 on the platform on the final night, tying for the NCAA title. The Auburn Tigers did more than just secure an NCAA Men’s Swimming and Diving Championship on Saturday night, March 29, 2003. They did it without leaving a doubt of who was the best team in the country with contributions coming from all 19 athletes on the NCAA roster. Just as impressive was the fact that the Tigers scored in all 21 events, a rarity in the sport. When it was all said and done, the Tigers won the third national team title in program history by crushing the field by a whopping 196.5 points, becoming just the second team in NCAA history to break the 600-point barrier as the Tigers tallied 609.5 points. “The fact that all 19 athletes scored in every event shows the diversity of this team,” David Marsh said. “We are not about one star. I am just delighted.” AU tallied 61 All-America honors in the process and made sure that the class of 2003 left without any disappointment. “All I can see is the eyes of this senior class because they are the ones that initiated the effort to pull this team together in a special way,” Marsh said. “They did the follow-through and then came to this meet and gave the performance. They didn’t want to leave Auburn without a championship, and I hope that is the attitude of future swimmers and divers that come into our program.” - By Justin Caron, class of 2003

coaches, athletes and fans, who was going to win the 2002 NCAA Women’s Swimming and Diving Championship in Austin, Texas, except in the minds of the soon to be champs - the Auburn Tigers. Not that the team thought the feat was impossible or that they weren’t capable, but the fear of “you just don’t know what can happen” loomed over their heads. Heading into that last day of competition, the Tigers stood at 67 points

ahead of the second place team with a strong day of competition remaining. Although the team knew they held a safe lead, the Tigers couldn’t help remembering last season, when a false start on the 400 free relay in the prelims of day three squashed any hope of bringing home Auburn’s first-ever women’s NCAA title. Little did Auburn know, that now insignificant set-back may have very well

Freshman Margaret Hoelzer was the 10th-highest scorer at the meet placing fourth in both the 100 butterfly and 200 backstroke and fifth in the 200 fly. The team as a whole broke an astounding 14 school records during the three-day event and AU head coach David Marsh was named the NCAA Women’s Swimming Coach of the Year for the second year in a row. He and associate head women’s coach Kim Brackin had constructed a masterpiece. No one could deny the astounding performance Auburn had just accomplished. Not No. 1 Stanford and not runner-up Georgia. The Tigers were finally on top. Where they knew they could and should be. With such a young “inexperienced” squad, it is a spot they don’t plan on relinquishing any time soon.

We just went out gunning for it.” Auburn continued to release their ammunition as the Tigers, went on to win four of the five swimming events held on day one. Senior Lionel Moreau captured the 200 IM (1:45.24) title, followed by Ciarla’s victory in the 50 free (19.34) and closed out the day by winning its closest event of the evening, the 400 medley relay (3:09.17). Brett Hawke, the anchor leg of the relay, dove in behind but swam a 42.34 split to outtouch Stanford’s Justin Ewers as the Tigers won by .08 of a second, 3:09.17 to 3:09.25. At the end of day one, Auburn had a 41-point lead over Texas and a 58.5-point lead over Stanford. The Tigers added to their title portfolio on day two as they continued to dominate in the relay events and score points in individual events. AU total recorded 168.5 points on day two alone, but only won one title, the 200 medley relay (1:26.12). 1999 NCAA Results 1. Auburn 2. Stanford 3. Texas 4. California 5. Arizona 6.

On the last day, the competition became very intense, as Stanford remained within reach of Auburn. It was truly a nail biter down to the last event. One of the biggest bonuses of the meet came on day three when sophomore Dave Denniston swam 1:55.51 to win the 200 breast title, the third individual title for AU in the meet. Heading into the final event of the meet, the 400 free relay, the Tigers Dave Denniston captured the 200 breast title and was a part of the 200 and 400 medley relays. knew that Stanford was still on their heels. AU’s leadership of Brock Newman, Hawke, Ciarla and Romain Barnier did not fail the Tigers as the relay team blazed through the 400 free relay. Ending the Championships as they began them, AU set the U.S. Open, NCAA and NCAA meet record in the 400 free relay with a time of 2:50.90. “I was like a cat on a hot stove Saturday night,” said Marsh. As soon as senior Romain Barnier touched the wall, everyone knew that the Auburn Tigers had won their second NCAA title. “The goal was, as is with a lot of programs, to win a national championship,” said Marsh. “We had an exceptional commitment from our seniors to lead the program. Throughout the year, when we hit a lot of bumps in the road, but they pulled us together.” The celebration of the second national title in three years, began on the pool deck and continued all the way back home to the Plains. After they arrived, there was the traditional rolling of Toomer’s Corner, causing downtown Auburn to look snow white in April. A coronation ceremony along with the Tiger walk from the Martin Aquatic Center to the coliseum was held in their honor. It was a moment of glory for the newcomers and a sense of conquest for the older members of the team who now had two NCAA titles placed by their name. “When you do something special at Auburn, the whole town and university celebrate,” said Marsh. In addition to the titles, AU now owns three of the five NCAA records in the relays, two of which were set this year. “The relays did play a crucial role,” said Marsh. “The fun thing about it was that there were different heroes on each different relay.” Auburn won seven events and placed in the top eight of eight others. There was one swimming event, out of eighteen, in which the Tigers did not earn points. For the first time in AU history, all of the Auburn NCAA team earned All-America honors. One could say that the Tigers went above and beyond the call of duty to prove that they were No. 1. NCAA champion Denniston summed it up best: “This is a dream come true. That’s why I came to Auburn, why a lot of guys did. Being this close and being able to taste it is a lot of fun.” Well said. -By Shea Miller

a fond memory for head coach David Marsh and his 1997 men’s swimming and diving team. It is there that the Tigers won the program’s first ever national championship.

going into the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships, Auburn left no doubt about who was really number one as the Tigers overwhelmed topranked Stanford, defending national champion Texas and 54 other teams that had qualified for nationals. The SEC champion Tigers finished a strong 156.5 points ahead of the second-place Cardinals. “To be honest, I didn’t know what to expect,” said Marsh. “I really enjoyed watching the guys celebrate and having a good time feeling great about Auburn University, their experience here and seeing it pay off for all of the hard work they put in this year.” In addition to winning the national title, Marsh was named 1997 NCAA

Coach of the Year, adding to his accolades of great swimming accomplishments. The previous year at the NCAA Championships in Austin, Texas, the Tigers scored 443.5 points to finish ahead of top-ranked Michigan’s 358 total but lost by 35.5 points to Texas’ 479.

individual champions but none from Auburn, which did have Nick Shackell, Brock Newman, and Scott Tucker, members of the defending champion 400 free relay team. With the three Olympians, Shackell, Tucker and Hargis and the senior diver Koffi Kla, Auburn rose to the top. “Nick Shackell, through his attitude, his care and love for the team, and his competitiveness, has been a tremendous leader,” said Marsh. “One of the most important moments of this meet was although John Hargis had the fastest 100 butterfly split on the medley relay we won, he had a disappointing 100 butterfly, but minutes later he was leading the cheers. That is what a guy of quality character does. Scott Tucker ended his career on an incredibly positive note. He was key in several of our relays. He has done Auburn very proud. Koffi Kla has been the best team diver I think we have ever had at Auburn. All four of those four will be missed sorely.” Newcomer Brett Hawke made an impression as he swam 19.16 in the 50 free prelims, the fastest ever by an Auburn swimmer. Hawke eventually took the title with a time of 19.19. Wearing their “Marsh Madness” t-shirts, which featured a photo of their coach in his longer hair that was fashionable in the late 1970s as an AllAmerican swimmer at AU, Auburn’s 18 competitors at nationals were obviously a close-knit group. Emphasizing the point was the decision to bleach their hair white as a further sign of team unity. The Tigers won four out of five relays, placed second in the 800 free relay and had 16 individuals earn All-America honors. After arriving back to Auburn, the Tigers and supporters gathered at Toomer’s Corner for a pep rally despite rain and thunder. An official Coronation of Champions ceremony was held featuring a traditional Tiger Walk from the Martin Aquatics Center to the coliseum where the swimmers and coaches received handshakes, high fives and cheers as they enjoyed their moment in the spotlight. The formal ceremony featured a list of speakers and proclamations from the president and the vice president of the United States to the mayor of Auburn. - By Mark Murphy

TIGER SPLASHERS

The Tiger Splashers is an organization comprised of Auburn students who dedicate their time and effort to the Auburn swimming and diving program. The Tiger Splashers assist the program in various areas including meet management, hospitality for recruits as well as general support for the swimmers. Every year, the Tiger Splashers not only work at every home meet, which includes assisting as timers, but they also make signs to hang in the James E. Martin Aquatics Center for the team and offer encouraging cards and support throughout the season. In the fall, they host a Halloween bowling party for the team and offer a Thanksgiving dinner, since the team is away from home for the holidays. In the spring, the Tiger Splashers host a spring cookout for the entire team, which proves to be one of the most fun outings of the season. During the 2009 SEC Championships, the Tiger Splashers helped out by serving as the timers, carrying the placecards that announced each event and holding the awards for the medal ceremony. The 2010-11 Tiger Splashers Officers are: Helen Northcutt - President, Kelley White, Allie Davis, Leah Northcutt, Alexa Girard, Nicole Sterghos, Courtney McArthur, Arkell Quarles, Megan Stephenson, Kayla Vines
