John Young became the head coach of the Wildcat swimming and diving program at the start of the 2006-07 season. During his tenure, the Wildcats have experienced tremendous success, highlighted by Lindsay Martin ‘11 and Drew Onken ’12 becoming the first Davidson swimmers to compete at the NCAA Division I Swimming & Diving Championships in 2010 and 2012, and three team Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association (CCSA) championships — two for the men (2010, 2011) and one for the women (2008). Under Young’s tutelage, Onken qualified for three events at the NCAA Championships as a junior in 2012, also earning the CCSA’s Most Outstanding Swimmer of the Meet and Men’s Swimmer of the Year honors after helping the Wildcat men to a runner-up finish at the CCSA Championships. Also collecting hardware was Dylan Ludwick, who earned Most Outstanding Freshman accolades for his success in the distance events.

In addition, Peitz earned Academic All-District honors. Young led the Wildcat men's swimming and diving team to its first ever conference championship in 2010, and they repeated as CCSA champions the following season.

During his tenure, the Wildcat men have completely rewritten the record book, with only three diving records remaining from the previous era. Overseeing the teams’ move to the CCSA to begin the 2007-08 season, Young led the women’s team to the inaugural championship. He was named CCSA Women's Coach of the Year and coached 14 athletes to All-CCSA performances, including five individual event winners. Under Young's leadership, the Wildcat women have also rewritten the record book, with all but five event records set by his athletes.

GRAHAM

Asst. Coach | Third Season Columbia ‘08

Asst. Coach | First Season Penn State ‘09

Amy Krakauer enters her third season with the Davidson Wildcats swimming & diving program. In her first two seasons at Davidson, she has assisted in coaching two CCSA Swimmers of the Year, a CCSA Most Oustanding Freshman of the Year, two NCAA Championship appearances, a CCSA Championship (men) and numerous broken records, CCSA individual titles and All-CCSA performances. Krakauer joined the Wildcat swimming and diving staff for the 2010-11 season after spending the two seasons as an assistant coach at Colgate University, where she coached the middle distance and stroke swimmers. During her first season with the Wildcats, Krakauer helped coach Davidson to a 2011 CCSA men's championship and 14 individual and seven relay records at the league championships. “Amy's experiences, both as a student-athlete and as a professional, make her a unique and impressive fit for our program," head coach John Young said. In her two seasons with the Raiders, the middle distance team achieved 231 personal best times, 27 school records, 22 Patriot League records, 15 NCAA B-cut times and the women’s team won the 2009 Patriot League Championship. Krakauer also coached Emily Murphy, who became Colgate’s first female NCAA championship competitor, in the 200 IM and the 100 and 200 breaststrokes. Krakauer’s coaching experience also includes stints at Nike Swimming Camps in 2006 and 2007 and as the head coach of the Columbia Masters Swimming program from 2005-08, while she was also a four-year member of the Columbia women’s swimming and diving team. Krakauer was a four-year letter winner for the Columbia Lions, earning First-Team All-Ivy honors in 2008, as a member of the winning 200 medley relay and runner-up 400 medley relay, and the runner-up in the 100 breast with an NCAA B-cut time at the Ivy League championships. She also earned Academic All-America Honorable Mention honors in 2008 and Academic All-Ivy honors in 2006, 2007 and 2008. The former team captain was also an NCAA Sportsmanship Award Ivy League nominee in 2006 and the Coaches Award winner in both 2005 and 2006. Krakauer earned her B.A. in Economics and German from Columbia in May of 2008, where she was an eight-semester honoree on the Dean’s List. She is a native of Colorado Springs, Colo. She won her age group at the Ironman Lousiville 2010 to earn a qualifying slot in the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii, where she finished ninth in her age group. She also was the top overall female finisher at the USA Triathlon Aquathlon National Championship in May of 2011 and competed in her second Ironman World Championship in October 2012.

Davidson College head swimming coach John Young announced the addition of Josh Graham as the newest member of the Wildcats’ coaching staff on Friday. “Over the years, and even before my time here, swimmers at Davidson have benefitted from working with some of the best young coaches in America” shared Young. “Josh can be counted among that group. As measured by athlete accomplishments, his career is off to a fast start. Add his enthusiasm for recruiting, and all the intangibles that help a college program to succeed, and it is easy to be excited to have him here at Cannon Pool. He is going to be a coaching star.” Graham comes to Davidson after serving as the Lead Senior Coach for South Eastern Virginia Aquatics (SEVA) in Newport News, Va. At SEVA, Josh worked primarily with swimmers transitioning to the Senior Level. In 2012, his 13 and 14 boys’ squad broke Virginia State’s 20-year-old records in the Long Course and Short Course 200-, 400-, and 800-yard freestyle relays. Those relays ranked among the nation’s top eight and earned Graham a position as a Zone Select Team Coach with Virginia Swimming. Under Graham’s direction, SEVA athletes saw great improvements, which he attributes to a greater understanding of the discipline and commitment that is necessary to achieve high level of swimming success. According to Graham, one of his best accomplishments was helping his athlete develop in incredible sense of respect for the sport. Graham earned a Bachelor’s degree in in criminology in 2009 from Penn State University, where he was a proud member of the varsity swimming team and contributed to Penn State’s success by scoring at the Big-Ten Championship during each of his four years. Graham is the former Virginia State record holder in the 200-yard freestyle – a record that was broken by his former teammate and good friend American record holder David Walters. A certified ASCA level-3 coach, Graham grew up in Newport News, Va., and started his swimming career at age five. "It has always been a goal of mine to coach in college,” says Graham, who is eager to make the transition to collegiate athletics. “To finally realize the opportunity to live out my dream at a school like Davidson is a true honor." Coach Graham will take a lead role in recruiting for the men’s team and will be involved in the preparation of every swimmer as Davidson’s men and women prepare for the CCSA Championship in February.

ESPN3.com will stream finals sessions on March 22 and 23. Additionally, ESPNU will air a 90-minute show at 12:30 p.m. ET, Sunday, April 1. Onken qualified with his time of 3:47.38 in the 400 IM, which earned him a first-place finish in the CCSA Championships and broke the conference record. The junior also had NCAA B-cut times in the 200 IM (1:46.69, CCSA record) and 200 breaststroke (1:59.65) and will swim all three events in the NCAAs.

Drew Onken set a new school and CCSA record in the 200 breast Saturday in his final event at the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships. The junior's time of 1:59.01 earned him 28th place at the competition. The previous CCSA record in the 200 breaststroke was set by Randy Buchanan from the College of Charleston in 2009. Onken, who was named CCSA swimmer of the meet and CCSA swimmer of the year at the 2012 CCSA Conference Championship, has left a mark on the conference record book. During the 2011-2012 season, he was recognized as CCSA swimmer of the week three times for his performances. He now holds three individual conference records (200 breast, 200 individual medley, and 400 individual medley) and is on four relays that also hold the conference record. Onken is the first male swimmer from Davidson to qualify for the NCAA Division I Swimming and Diving Championships, and also competed this weekend in the 200 and 400 individual medley. His highest placing performance this weekend was a 19th place finish in the 400 Individual Medley. Onken continues to represent Davidson on the national level and will travel this June to Omaha, Neb., for the US Olympic Trials.

DAVIDSON WILDCATS


JIM MURPHY DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS Jim Murphy was introduced as Davidson College’s Director of Athletics in November of 1995, returning to his alma mater to lead the Wildcats on the eve of their 100th anniversary of intercollegiate athletics and into the next century. Prior to his appointment at Davidson, Murphy, 53, spent 10 years as executive associate athletic director and chief financial officer for the Georgia Tech Athletic Association. Murphy, an Atlanta native, played football and baseball during his freshman year at Davidson. His experience has been invaluable as he guides a program which is unique in its desire for excellence in both athletics and academics and has one of the smallest enrollments among NCAA Division I schools. Reflecting his support of academics, Davidson’s NCAA graduation rate of 91 percent was the highest in Division I in 2001-02, second in 2002-03 with a rate of 97 percent and continues to be above 90 percent each year. “I firmly believe Davidson represents the ideal in college athletics and think the success of Davidson’s students, both in competition and after graduation proves that,” said Murphy. “It’s true that Davidson needs intercollegiate athletics, but intercollegiate athletics need Davidson even more.” Since Murphy’s return to Davidson, the Wildcats have pursued several major capital projects, including the creation of the highly-innovative $10 million Davidson Scholars Program, and major improvements have been completed in Belk Arena and at Smith Field at Richardson Stadium. The last five years have seen the construction of the Belk Artificial Surface Field for field hockey, the new Alumni Stadium for soccer, Wilson Baseball Park and batting cages and the football stadium expansion project, which included a state-of-the-art weight room, a new press box and additional permanent seating. Murphy, the 2004 NACDA Division I-AA/I-AAA Southeast Region Athletic Director of the Year, served two terms on the prestigious NCAA Division I Management Council, a policy-making body within the NCAA governance structure. He chaired the Division I-AA Governance Committee and formerly served on the NCAA Division I Business and Finance Cabinet, the Division I Governance Committee and the Division I Finance Committee. From 2002-04, Murphy chaired the Athletic Directors Association of the Southern Conference. He was part of Charlotte’s successful bid to host the NCAA Division I Men’s Soccer Championships in 1999 and 2000 and also served as Tournament Director of the first and second-round games of the 2005 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship in Charlotte. Murphy is a past member of the Division I Football Issues Committee and Past-President of the Football Championship Subdivision Athletic Directors Association. He was also a member of the NCAA Task Force on Recruiting, an 18-member panel charged with changing the culture of recruiting in intercollegiate athletics, and currently serves on the NCAA’s Fiscal Responsibility Oversight Group. A licensed Certified Public Accountant and 1978 graduate of Davidson with a degree in economics, he earned a Master of Science degree in management from Georgia Tech in 1979. He worked from 1979-85 as an audit manager with the international public accounting firm of KPMG Peat Marwick in Atlanta with responsibility for financial statement audits of public and private companies with up to $1 billion in assets. Murphy has been active in the community since his return to Davidson. He is involved with Social Venture Partners - Charlotte, chairs the Board of Managers of the Lake Norman YMCA, the Board of Directors of the Charlotte Regional Sports Commission, served three years on the Board of the Charlotte Council for Children and three years on the Board of Directors of the Town of Davidson Youth Baseball League. Murphy is married to Dr. Susan Roberts, a political science professor at Davidson, and his 24-year-old son, Matt, is a graduate of the University of North Carolina and works in advertising in Chapel Hill, N.C.

CAROL QUILLEN PRESIDENT Carol Quillen, who was previously the vice president for international and interdisciplinary initiatives at Rice University, became the 18th president of Davidson College on August 1, 2011. Quillen has had a long and distinguished career at Rice. She joined the faculty as an assistant professor of history in 1990, and she earned promotion to associate professor in 1996. From 2004 to 2008, she served as the first director of Rice's Boniuk Center for the Study and Advancement of Religious Tolerance, leading development of the center's new mission and shaping an agenda that helped distinguish the center from other organizations. From 2006 to 2010, Quillen served as Rice's vice provost for academic affairs, focusing particularly on developing initiatives that cross academic schools, faculty diversity and faculty development, and resource development. During this time, she worked with faculty to develop and secure funding for a new Center for Asian Studies and a new Institute for Urban Research. She co-chaired the president's diversity task force, and instituted mentoring programs for junior faculty. As vice president for international and interdisciplinary initiatives, Quillen was responsible for developing and implementing Rice's overall global strategy, which includes research partnerships, recruiting strategies, curricular revision and international opportunities for students. She also facilitates implementation of university-wide initiatives, including the Institute for Urban Research, Rice 360 (a global health effort), and collaborations with Baylor and other institutions within the Texas Medical Center. James W. Crownover, chair of Rice University's Board of Trustees, said, "It's an honor for Rice that one of ours has been chosen to lead a place as respected as Davidson. She will work hard, and she will succeed there." Quillen grew up in New Castle, Del., a small town where she says "it was second nature to support the community and look out for other people." A Presbyterian, she attended Quaker schools from pre-kindergarten through high school. She earned a B.A. degree in American history from the University of Chicago, graduating Phi Beta Kappa with special and general honors, then received a Ph.D. degree in European history from Princeton. A humanist whose academic interests include early modern European history, European intellectual history and gender studies, Quillen has written two books on Petrarch, as well as a number of scholarly articles, reviews and papers. She has received a number of teaching awards during her tenure at Rice. Quillen's daughter, Caitlin, will be a first-year student at the University of North Carolina next fall. Quillen's husband, Ken Kennedy-a computer pioneer who founded the computer science program at Rice—died of pancreatic cancer in 2007. "His greatest gift to me, and to the Rice community, was in living the life he would have chosen," Quillen said. "That's something I think about in a very profound way every day." At Davidson, Quillen succeeds Tom Ross '72, who announced in August 2010 that he would step down to become president of the University of North Carolina system in January 2011.
