Director of Cal Crew Mike Teti, formerly the head coach of the 2008 U.S. men’s Olympic rowing team, became the head coach of men’s crew at the University of California in July 2008. Teti fulfilled his obligations with the Olympic team through the Beijing Games and officially started at Cal on Sept. 1, 2008. He replaced Steve Gladstone, after coaching the U.S. men’s eight to a bronze medal in China. In December of 2008, Teti received the USRowing Medal, the highest honor that the rowing governing body can bestow. In March, Teti was inducted into the National Rowing Hall of Fame as the coach of the gold medal-winning men¹s eight at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games. Teti is the first person to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as both a coach and an athlete. In his first season at the helm for the Golden Bears, Teti led Cal to a Pac-10 Championship and a second-place finish at the 2009 IRA Regatta. Also, under his guidance, seven members of the team competed in the 2009 Under 23 World

A longtime fixture on the national level, Teti served on the U.S. coaching staff at the World Championships and Olympic Games regularly since 1996. He coached the U.S. men’s eight to nine world championship medals during that time period including four gold medals in 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2005. At the Olympics in Athens 2004, he directed the men’s eight to a world record in its heat and an eventual gold medal, marking the first time the United States captured the men’s eight since 1964. U.S. national team crews produced 27 total medals under Teti’s guidance. Teti was named the U.S. head men’s sweep coach after the 1996 Olympics and head men’s coach following the 2000 Games. At

HISTORY OF CAL MEN’S CREW

T

he University of California and its men’s rowing program were both founded in 1868, and crew thereby became the first sport at Cal. The Cal men’s crew began its dominance of national and international rowing in earnest in 1924 with the hiring of Carrol (“Ky”) Ebright as head coach. Over Ebright’s leadership of 36 years, Cal crew became synonymous with Olympic gold medals and national collegiate championships. Over the years, Cal has won gold medals representing the United States three times in the Olympic Games, more than any college or university in the world. The year 1928 proved to be a landmark time in Cal crew history, as the team compiled arguably the greatest season in the history of collegiate rowing. The crew was undefeated domestically, went on to become the American entry in the 1928 Olympics and brought home gold from Amsterdam.

The Cal varsity eight repeated its Olympic conquest four years later with a close victory over Italy in the 1932 Olympics at Long Beach, Calif., as it too was unbeaten all year. Sixteen years later Cal brought home a third gold medal, this time from the 1948 Olympics at Henley-on-Thames, England. Ebright’s crews also won a total of six Intercollegiate Rowing Association (IRA) championships. In fact, some argue that Ebright’s 1939 IRA champion might have been the fastest of all of his fine crews: it had little trouble with its collegiate opponents, defeating Washington by 12 lengths before going on to set the stillstanding four-mile course record at the IRA. Jim Lemmon moved up from frosh coach to take over the reins from Ebright in 1960. In Lemmon’s seven years as head coach, he strung together an impressive streak that included winning three IRA championships and two Pacific Coast championships.

CAL COACHING SUMMARY

12

CALIFORNIA GOLDEN BEARS 2010 Men’s Crew

The Cal varsity eight won its latest IRA title in 2006. Bruce Beall guided Cal to its fourth consecutive dual-race victory over Washington in his first year in charge. Mark Zembsch, a 1982 graduate of Cal, took his turn at the helm of program in 1992 after two years of coaching Cal freshmen squads. The Bears showed improvement, winning the ’92 traditional cup race over Washington in both the varsity and junior varsity events. In 1995, after three years of rebuilding, the Bears had their best season in nine years, ending in a sixth-place finish at the national championships. Gladstone returned for a second stint coaching the Bears in 1997 after many successful seasons at Brown. Charged with returning Cal men’s crew to the upper echelon of collegiate rowing, Gladstone wasted no time as the varsity earned an IRA bronze in 1997 and 1998 and IRA gold in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2006. With the 2006 IRA championship, the Bears have won 15 IRA National Championships, the second most behind Cornell (26). Gladstone closed out his Cal career after the 2008 varsity placed third in the national regatta, paving the way for the arrival of 2008 U.S. Olympic coach Mike Teti in Berkeley. In his first season at the helm for the Golden Bears, Teti led Cal to a Pac-10 Championship and a second-place finish at the 2009 IRA Regatta. Also, under his guidance, four members of the team were named to the 2009 U.S. Under 23 National team that competed at the 2009 World Rowing Under 23 Championships. James Long-Lerno and Nareg Guregian won a silver medal with the men’s four at the international event.

T. GARY ROGERS ROWING CENTER

F

or more than a century, the home of the California crew has been the Oakland Estuary, located between Alameda Island and the City of Oakland. The Estuary offers 11 miles of protected waters and is one of the few courses in the nation where a straight three-mile race can be held. With a generous donation from Cal alumni Gary Rogers, and the hard work of Friends

16

of Cal Crew, the Golden Bears opened their brand new boathouse in 2004. The facility is a three building campus on a property that is three times the size of the former site. The boathouse offers five boat bays and a training space that can accommodate both men’s and women’s crew. The T. Gary Rogers boathouse replaces the storied Ky Ebright Boathouse, which was built more than a century ago and became

CALIFORNIA GOLDEN BEARS 2010 Men’s Crew

the Bears’ home in 2004. The preserved and restored front half of the Ky Ebright Boathouse will serve as the inspirational link to the past and a museum of sorts. Many Olympic gold medalist, world champion and national champion crews have trained at the boathouse at one time. It is believed that the boathouse has been home to more Olympic gold medalists than any other facility in the world.


BRIONES RESERVOIR

L

ocated over the Berkeley Hills in Orinda, the Briones Reservoir serves as the second home of Cal men’s crew. With its crystal clear water and limited boat traffic, Briones offers a beautiful escape while providing excellent training conditions year-round. The topography of the surrounding hills combined with the L-shaped body of water result in flat water conditions regardless of wind direction. In 2002, a new two-bay facil-

ity was completed, which has added to the allure of Briones for the Cal men, whose

varsity and freshman crews often practice at Briones.

ERGOMETER FACILITY

L

ocated underneath the west grand stand at the Edwards Track Stadium, the California men’s on-campus ergometer facility hums with the spinning of the flywheel and the beat of a boom box seven days a week. Although the Draconian concrete structure seems a bit foreboding at first, it provides the perfect atmosphere to concentrate on pulling hard. “The erg room is an integral part of our overall training program,” said former Cal head coach Steve Gladstone. “Although we have water available to row on all year around, during the winter months we use the machines frequently.” With the music blaring, the coxswains yelling and 40 rowers chasing personal bests, the energy in the ergroom reaches a fever pitch on a regular basis. Whether it is a scheduled team workout or a solitary training piece, the convenient

location of the facility allows the studentathletes to get on and off the erg quickly and

get back to life outside of rowing as soon as possible.

The University of California

SIMPLY THE BEST

T

here is no other way to aptly describe America’s top public university. There is no other way to describe one of the elite academic settings in the world – especially one that also includes one of America’s most successful athletic departments. The University of California blends the best of all worlds. Overlooking the scenic San Francisco Bay and ranked as the nation’s top public university by the U.S. News and World Report, the flagship campus of the state of California also features an athletic program that annually finishes among the leaders in the Directors’ Cup standings, which rates the overall success of America’s collegiate athletic departments. Cal attracts what many believe to be the finest applicant pool in the United States. The university features a diverse student body population. The University of California offers 351 degree programs, and 35 of the school’s 36 graduate programs are ranked among America’s Top 10. Cal’s 35 programs among the Top 10 is No. 1 among all universities in the country, as is its 32 “distinguished” programs, as rated by the National Research Council. The library is ranked third in the country, as judged by the Association of Research Libraries with 10 million volumes in 32 campus libraries. The faculty features seven Nobel Laureates, 135 members of the National Academy of Sciences, 28 MacArthur Fellows, 74 Fulbright Scholars, four Pulitzer Prize winners and more Guggenheim Fellows (359) than any other university in America.

Berkeley and the Bay Area

BERKELEY

B

erkeley is a part of the San Francisco Bay Area major metropolitan area of approximately 7.2 million people. The region is one of the most beautiful in the world and includes the major cities of San Francisco and Oakland, as well as Berkeley, home of the world-renowned University of California. Just south are San Jose and the Silicon Valley, home to many of the world’s high-tech companies. The Bay Area also lies within easy driving distance of the high Sierra resorts of Lake Tahoe and Yosemite, the Monterey/Carmel peninsula, the world famous Napa wine country and the spectacular Mendocino Coast. Everyone knows San Francisco, a.k.a. “The City,” from the numerous photographs, movies and television shows that capture its magic and beauty. It is a city built on a series of more than 40 hills, offering panoramic views of every kind. The hub of a ninecounty complex and the financial and insurance capital of the world, San Francisco has a resident population of just over 800,000 and is situated on a 46.7 square mile peninsula bounded on

the west by the Pacific Ocean, the north by the Golden Gate strait, and from north to east by the San Francisco Bay. San Francisco has been named the world’s top city twice and the top city in the U.S. in 18 of the last 19 years by Condé Nast Traveler. The San Francisco Bay is spanned by two landmarks, the Golden Gate and San Francisco-Oakland Bay bridges, and graced by four islands: Alcatraz, Angel, Yerba Buena and Treasure. The area is easily navigated by car, BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), bus or ferry, making it easily accessible to all.

SAN FRANCISCO

Frank Gore

Located across the Bay Bridge from San Francisco, Oakland is a city of over 400,000, jam-packed with exciting attractions, stimulating arts and an ideal climate. Oakland’s charm exceeds its man-made wonders, as its tumbling hills, vast forests, hiking and riding trails, beautiful lakes and numerous parks provide a natural escape for those who prefer nature over an urban environment. Berkeley, just a 12-mile drive from San Francisco, is situated on 17.7 square miles with a population of just under 103,000 people. A study in contrasts, Berkeley is a small town with a big city character. With its world-renowned university, global population and rich diversity of cultural arts, Berkeley reflects and affects the rest of the country.

Sports fans can see it all in the Bay Area - professional football (San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders), professional basketball (Golden State Warriors), professional baseball (San Francisco Giants, Oakland Athletics), professional hockey (San Jose Sharks) and outstanding collegiate competition (six Division I schools).

SIMPLY THE BEST • Money magazine chose San Francisco as “the best place to live” among the 300 biggest U.S. metropolitan areas. • Forbes.com has ranked San Francisco one of America’s “best cities for the outdoors” for each of the past two years while American College of Sports Medicine has consistently placed San Francisco among the nation’s Top 5 in fitness among the most populous cities. • Readers of Travel + Leisure magazine selected San Francisco as their favorite city in 2008 for its “noteworthy neighborhoods.”

Academic Achievement ACADEMIC GAME PLAN COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAM FOCUSES ON GOLDEN BEAR ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT

O

ne of the real success stories for the University of California is the development and growth of a comprehensive academic support program for its student-athletes: the Athletic Study Center. In 1984, campus officials and athletic department administrators decided that a greater emphasis needed to be placed on helping Cal student-athletes with their academic pursuits. The Athletic Study Center was thus born and charged with developing an academic support program tailored to the needs of NCAA Division I student-athletes. It was a significant development for an academically oriented institution such as Cal to recognize the special needs required for a modern student-athlete’s success both as an athletic competitor on the field of play and as a student in the classroom.

STUDENT-ATHLETE PROGRAM The Athletic Study Center, which is housed within the Division of Undergraduate Education, is the tutorial and academic support program for the nearly 1,000 student-athletes at Cal. Centrally located in

Athletic Study Center Staff

the Cesar Chavez Student Center, the program provides a spacious and comfortable arboretum for quiet study, separate classrooms for individual and group tutorials, and a computer lab for word processing and required course work. Geared around the understanding of the amount of time studentathletes must devote to practice, training, physical therapy and team travel, the program creates an environment where students can cultivate strong study habits, receive individual or group tutoring and obtain counseling from academic advisors.

TUTORIAL PROGRAM

ADVISING PROGRAM

SPECIAL PROGRAMS

The tutorial program promotes and enhances student academic skills and progress by providing individual tutoring, group workshops, study groups, credit courses and intensive special programs. The Athletic Study Center has between 50-60 tutors on staff per semester to guarantee that students receive the best possible support. Tutorial sessions are also offered at night, enabling student-athletes to receive help after practices when are able to devote more time to studying.

The advising program offers a broad range of services to meet the unique needs of student-athletes, including assistance in understanding and complying with university, college and NCAA requirements, developing time management skills and resolving personal academic issues unique to student-athletes. During a student-athlete’s freshman year, advisors provide assistance to ensure a successful academic transition from high school. In the sophomore year, they assist student-athletes in making decisions on appropriate majors and fields of study. Over the course of the final two years, advisors take more of an exiting approach, ensuring that proper academic progress is being made towards graduation while referring juniors and seniors to areas on or near campus that can help with career planning and development.

The Athletic Study Center offers a special service called Summer Bridge; an adjunct program designed to help ease the transition from high school to college. The primary components of the program include writing and math workshops, an advising workshop, study skills seminars and an evening tutorial program. Another special program offered is peer advising. Peer advisors provide academic and campus guidance for new intercollegiate student-athletes. They are selected from junior and senior student-athletes who assist in the development of programs to further address the needs of studentathletes.

STUDENT-ATHLETE HIGH PERFORMANCE CENTER

MEMORIAL STADIUM RENOVATION

The Student-Athlete High Performance Center, now under construction, is expected to be completed prior to the 2011 season. The 142,000 square foot facility will house locker rooms, offices and meeting rooms, as well as areas for strength and conditioning, sports medicine, nutrition and academics for football and 12 other intercollegiate sports. The building is the physical manifestation of Cal’s High Performance Initiative, a unique program that challenges student-athletes to reach their level of optimal performance through strategic and efficient application of resources. Using cutting-edge technology and a multidisciplinary approach, the cornerstone principles of the HPI are communication, integration and information.

Memorial Stadium, considered by many to be one of the most beautiful settings for collegiate football, was originally constructed with funds donated by alumni, faculty, students and fans. At the time, Robert Gordon Sproul, who became UC president in 1930, said that the stadium “stands in simple dignity, beauty and strength.” Now, plans are being finalized to renovate the 86-year-old structure, starting with the west side, to create programmatic, game day and fan amenity improvements while respecting the architecture and character of the historic structure. Donors have demonstrated their backing of the privatelyfunded project through their commitment to the Endowment Seat Program (ESP), a first-of-its-kind effort in major college athletics to secure the financial future for the Athletic Department. ESP will provide a long-term, sustaining endowment that could grow to $1 billion over the next 30 years and will be used to fund annual operating needs for Cal’s studentathletes.
