ERNEST B. MCCOY NATATORIUM

Penn State’s aquatics complex is one of the most complete indoor-outdoor facilities in the East. McCoy Natatorium has been the home of Nittany Lion swimming and diving since 1969, and was named after Ernest B. McCoy in 1980. McCoy served from 1952-70 as Penn State’s Director of Athletics and Dean of the College of Health, Physical Education and Recreation. Locker room and office renovations in the summer of 1988 served to re-design and tastefully upgrade the McCoy complex. In addition, the fitness loft, with over 40 pieces of exercise equipment, was installed in 1990. McCoy’s locker rooms again received a face-lift in the summer of 2004. The indoor facility includes three areas: a six-lane, 25-yard racing pool; a six-lane, 25-meter instructional pool; and a 42-square-foot diving well. The 50-foot wide racing pool is a fast course, running from a depth of 10 feet at the starting end to six feet at the turning end. A Colorado electronic timing system with a complete readout board is used for all collegiate competitions in the racing pool. The 25-meter pool is not a competitive area, but is used for training, instruction and for warm ups during competition. The 14-foot deep diving well is equipped with two one-meter and two threemeter Duraform standards. Both maxi-flex and cheese boards are used at each height. The well also is equipped with a trampoline, spotting rig and port-a-pit. An eight-lane Olympic-size outdoor pool measuring 50 meters by 25 yards adjoins the McCoy Natatorium. Diving apparatus includes two one-meter and two three-meter springboards and a diving tower with one-, three-, five-, seven-point-five- and 10-meter platforms. The outdoor pool is used for training in September, October, late spring and summer. The facility is used for a variety of top national and local swimming and diving events and also serves as the home competition and training facility for the local swimming club program, Big Cat Aquatics. In the summer of 2004, Penn State announced a new $100 million fundraising campaign for Intercollegiate Athletics that will make a new swimming facility a top priority.

HEAD COACH JOHN HARGIS

John

HARGIS Second Year HEAD COACH

AUBURN ‘99

For just the fourth time in the 40 years of Penn State swimming and diving, it welcomed a new head coach. John Hargis took over the program as the first new coach in 10 years and led both the men’s and women’s squads to solid seasons in 2008-09. His first year at the helm was a highly successful one, leading both programs to national rankings throughout the season. e women’s program was as high as 15th heading into the NCAA Championships where six Nittany Lions competed along with five on the men’s side. Vincent Reydams, Patrick Schirk, Jason Goldner, Basil Kaaki, and Brian Alden all received Honorable Mention All-American to lead the Lions to a 32nd place finish. e women placed 38th led by two Honorable Mention All-American finishes from Kelly Nelson and one from Kaitlin O’Brien. In addition, the men’s and women’s squads combined to break an astonishing 14 school records in Hargis’ first season. Hargis returned to Happy Valley where he was an assistant coach at Penn State from 2003-06 before moving onto Arkansas-Little Rock where he was named head women’s swimming coach in February of 2007. He was also the head coach and the chief executive officer of the Little Rock Arkansas Dolphins club swimming program. “John has demonstrated that he has the ability to continue the success of our swimming program both athletically and academically,” said Director of Athletics Tim Curley at the time of his hire. “He has been a swimmer at the highest level, having won an Olympic gold medal, and he also has a large array of experience as a coach, both at the collegiate and the club levels. We are extremely pleased to welcome John and his wife, Lauren, and son John back to Happy Valley and are prepared to help him keep our swimming pro-

grams moving forward” “We are delighted to have John Hargis return to Penn State as our new head coach of men's and women's swimming,” said Susan DelaneyScheetz, Penn State Associate Director of Athletics and Senior Woman Administrator. “John's knowledge, enthusiasm and passion for swimming and Penn State will enable him to take the program to new heights.” With Hargis at the helm, he became just the second head swimming coach at Penn State since the men's and women's swimming programs were merged into one following the Hargis at last year’s Senior Meet vs. Richmond 2000-01 season. He is Penn State’s fourth head women's coach of all-time and just the sixth head coach in men's program history. “I am glad to be back in the blue and white of Penn State and it is exciting to be back in the tradition of excellence that Penn State provides, both athletically and academically," said Hargis prior to last season. “Both my family and I are excited to once again be part of the Penn State culture and we look forward to continuing the tradition that has been set by those before us in the swimming program.” Hargis left his assistant post at Penn State in September of 2006 to take over the Arkansas Dolphins premier swim club, which was also his former club team. In that role, he directed the program to the overall team state long course title in 2007, winning both the men's and women's team title for only the second time in program history. He also led both the men's and

Hargis was instrumental in helping recruit 2008 NCAA Champion Patrick Schirk to Penn State. He also assisted with several other aspects and day-to-day operations of the program, including the creation and implementation of a training regimen for both the men's and women's sprinters, breaststroke and IM swimmers. Prior to arriving at Penn State, Hargis was an assistant coach at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas for two years during the 2002-03 season where he also coached NCAA, Olympic and U.S. Nationals qualifiers and guided the Mountain West Conference Male Swimmer of the Year.

SEASON OUTLOOK With the 2009-10 season comes high expectations for the Penn State women’s swimming and diving team. Despite losing a number of standout performers, the Nittany Lions return the talent to have another strong season in search of their first Big Ten Title since 2006.

SENIORS

Atop the list of returners are seniors Kailey Morris and Michelle Myers, who have both earned Honorable Mention All-America laurels in their careers. Morris’ success has come primarily in the butterfly as she is second on Penn State’s all-time 200 butterfly list. “Kailey is ready to go for her senior year,” head coach John Hargis said. “She scored in all three events at Big Ten’s and she will be looked at to again score in the top eight.” Meanwhile, Myers has been versatile in swimming the freestyle, backstroke and butterfly. Her honorable mention honors both came in relays. Strength in that facet give Hargis flexibility to use her in all five of those relays and he knows that she will be a crucial component of the team’s success. Also returning are senior co-captains Lindsey DeForrest and Lyndsey Smith. Like Myers, DeForrest can swim a number of events and is primed for an outstanding senior season. “[Lindsey] had a great summer,” Hargis said. “She’s really put herself in position to have the best year of her college career which you like to see as a senior.” Smith, the other captain, is a two-time NCAA Qualifier, doing so as a freshman and junior. In her first collegiate season, she was a Big Ten Champion in the 100 breaststroke and finished 38th at NCAA’s. Last year, she returned to the NCAA Championships, competing in the 100 breaststroke, 200 breaststroke and 200 IM. Stephanie Roop and Daphne Seklos are seniors who have NCAA experience with Roop garnering Honorable Mention All-America in the 800 freestyle relay in 2008. Skelos swam in four events (200 backstroke, 200 IM, 400 IM, 400 medley relay) in last season’s NCAA Championships highlighted by a 20th-place finish in the 400 medley relay. Erin Luley rounds out an outstanding senior class. She is yet another of the seven seniors who look to make an impact in their final seasons in Happy Valley. Hargis expects her to have a breakout season. “Erin had a good summer,” he said. “We’ve always played around with Erin’s events and I think finally for her senior year, we’ll see where she needs to be.”

JUNIORS

e junior class is Penn State’s smallest, consisting of only six studentathletes (four swimmers and two divers). Making her return to the lineup is Heather Brady after not competing in 2008-09. She jumped right in as a freshman and competed in primarily the 50, 100 and 200 freestyles capped off by season-best times at the 2008 Big Ten Championships. Alongside Brady is fellow freestyler Diana Greco. Greco garnered a wealth of experience as a freshman and sophomore to set her up for a strong final two seasons. She was extremely successful in the 1,000 freestyle, which included top-four finishes on five occasions. “Diana had a great year as a sophomore,” Hargis said. “It was definitely a breakthrough year. Like with [Stephanie] Roop, she will be a vital part of our distance.” Other junior swimmers are Lauren Smart and Alexandra Young. Smart will be looked upon to score in the 100 and 200 backstrokes and the 100 butterfly. Young, who swims the freestyle and butterfly, will be looked upon at the Big Ten level as well.

Michelle Myers (top) and the seniors look to lead the way for Bryeanne Ravettine (bottom) and the rest of the freshmen class.

SOPHOMORES e sophomores consist of youngsters who are poised for continued improvement. Among the 10 are nine swimmers and one diver with Kaeley Boyle, Katie Pulos and Erin omas leading the way among many. Boyle had a strong showing at last year’s Big Ten Championships, which included a third-place finish in the 200 backstroke. She has flexibility with a potential to score in a number of events, most notably the 200 and 500 freestyles and 200 backstroke. “Kaeley had a good transition year as a freshman and will be looked on as a sophomore to contribute,” Hargis said. Meanwhile, Pulos put forth one of the best freshman showings last year and looks to ride the momentum into her second season. Her rookie campaign peaked at the Big Ten Championships where she swam to career-best times in the 50, 100 and 200 freestyle. She also garnered a number of topfive finishes on the season. omas impressed in primarily freestyle events as well. Other sophomore swimmers who look to make their mark are Alexa Hetzel, Kristen McKnight, Samantha Palser, Kristen Rodman, Rose Snyder and Emily Wolfarth.

FRESHMEN

is season is a unique one consisting of arguably one of the best senior classes in program history to go along with a dominant freshman group as well. Hargis knows the freshmen can make an impact from day one. “We lost a big class last year but we’ve got a very, very good freshman class,” he said, “possibly the best freshman female class Penn State swimming has ever had.” 2002 • 2005 • 2006 BIG TEN CHAMPIONS

COACHING HISTORY Penn State Athletics has always been synonymous with tradition and winning, and the women’s swimming and diving team is no exception. Since the program’s inception in 1970, the Nittany Lion swimmers have only been led by four head coaches: Ellen Perry, Bob Krimmel, Bill Dorenkott and most recently, John Hargis. Perry, an Associate Athletic Director for women’s sports at Penn State, led the Nittany Lions from 1970-81, and posted an impressive record of 103-26-0. In addition, Perry coached the relay team of Joan Peto, Jan Fischer, Laurie Fedon and Lisa Fedon to an American record on March 1, 1975. Bob Krimmel, affectionately known to his swimmers as “Krim,” took over as head coach of the Nittany Lion program before the 1981-82 season. However, Krimmel was no stranger to the McCoy Natatorium. A former Penn State record-holder in the 100 and 200 freestyle, Krimmel was an assistant for both the Penn State men’s and women’s swimming teams for eight years prior to his appointment as head coach. Under Krimmel’s leadership, the Nittany Lions won three Eastern Women’s Swimming League titles, and finished second five times before diving into Big Ten Conference competition in 1992. Penn State quickly showed the rest of the conference why it is one of the most dominant programs in the East, as the team finished fourth in the Big Ten in only its second year. With Krimmel on deck, Penn State swimmers won seven individual Big Ten titles in seven years, and sent at least one swimmer to the NCAA Championships in 16 out of 17 years. Perhaps more amazing than Krimmel’s swimmers’ athletic accomplishments were their academic accomplishments. e Nittany Lions ranked first in the nation in 1996-97 among all collegiate swimming programs with a cumulative team GPA of 3.335. e Penn State women have garnered Team Academic All-America status for 14 consecutive years, and counting. In Dorenkott’s ten seasons in Happy Valley, the Nittany Lions excelled in the classroom, boasting 45 swimmers Academic All-Americans. He led the team to three Big Ten championships and its three highest-ever finishes at NCAA Championships. Both Perry and Krimmel set an academic and athletic precedent that Dorenkott followed. Hargis, in his first season at the helm of the Nittany Lions, kept up the excellence that is Penn State swimming. He posted an 8-2-1 record, along with continued success in the classroom. Last season, 16 members were named Academic All-Big Ten while four others were named CSCAA Academic All-Americans.

SEASON OUTLOOK Second-year head coach John Hargis will rely on a key blend of youth and experience to propel the Nittany Lions to their former heights in the ever-competitive Big Ten Conference. The 2009-10 men’s swimming and diving team looks to improve upon its finishes of seventh in the Big Ten Championships and 32nd at the NCAA Championships a year ago with a skilled group of student-athletes poised to succeed at the highest level in collegiate swimming. Joining Hargis for a second-straight year are assistant coaches Liz Klink and Aaron Mahaney. Klink heads up the recruiting effort of the squad, while Mahaney takes care of the mid- to long-distance swimmers. New to the staff this season are Thad Schultz and Brian King. Schultz and King bring a wealth of experience in swimming from their previous stops at Clemson, Ohio State and Australia.

The 2008-09 Academic All-Big Ten team member will bolster the sprint freestyle charges for Coach Hargis’ squad. “These guys have a pretty high experience level,” Hargis said. “We will rely on our seniors to have good swims and lead us to wins.”

STATE COLLEGE AREA Centre County is home to e Pennsylvania State University, one of the finest teaching and research institutions in the land. Penn State’s impact is great, from the touring Broadway shows that visit campus to two recent additions: the Penn State Research Park and the 15,261-seat Bryce Jordan Center. e ebb-and-flow of students and activity in State College creates a vital downtown that always is bustling, but this is especially so during home football weekends in the fall and the nationally-acclaimed Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts every July. Escape isn’t far away. Less than 20 minutes from campus are quiet towns and villages with charms of their very own, as well as mountains, lakes and roaring streams and brooks.

Located among mountains and valleys in the exact geographic center of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Centre County thrives on its ability to blend education with industry, technology, historic shopping districts and farming communities. e heart of the Centre Region is State College, a community featuring the best that life has to offer, in education, commerce, culture and recreation. is mixture of the cosmopolitan and pastoral works so well that to many the Centre Region is known as “Happy Valley." e region is frequently ranked near the top of the charts by Money magazine’s “Best Places To Live" and Rand McNally’s “Retirement Places Rated Guide."

NITTANY LION TRADITIONS

NITTANY LION LEGEND Penn State’s athletic symbol, chosen by the student body in 1906, is the mountain lion which once roamed central Pennsylvania. H.D. “Joe" Mason, a member of the Class of 1907, conducted a one-man campaign to choose a school mascot after seeing the Princeton tiger on a trip with the Penn State baseball team to that New Jersey campus. A student publication sponsored the campaign to select a mascot and Penn State is believed to be the first college to adopt the lion as a mascot. Since Penn State is located in the Nittany Valley at the foot of Mount Nittany, the lion was designated as a Nittany Lion. In regional folklore, Nittany (or Nita-Nee) was a valorous Indian princess in whose honor the Great Spirit caused Mount Nittany to be formed. A later namesake, daughter of chief O-Ko-Cho, who lived near the mouth of Penn’s Creek, fell in love with Malachi Boyer, a trader. e tearful maiden and her lost lover became legend and her name was given to the stately mountain.

BLUE & WHITE Penn State’s student-athletes are instantly identified by their blue and white uniforms — but those weren’t the original school colors. A three-member committee representing the sophomore, junior and senior classes was appointed in October of 1887 to develop color options from which the student body would select the school’s official colors. Dark pink and black was the unanimous choice of the student body after considering the color combinations presented by the committee. Soon many students and the baseball team were sporting pink and black striped blazers and caps. However, problems arose when the pink faded to white after several weeks of exposure to the sun. e students then opted for blue, rather than black, and white. e official announcement of the new choice was made on March 18, 1890.

THE NITTANY LION SHRINE Penn State’s Nittany Lion shrine was dedicated on October 24, 1942, during Homecoming Weekend. Animal sculptor Heinz Warneke and stonecutter Joseph Garatti molded a 13-ton block of Indiana limestone into the most recognizable symbol of Penn State. e shrine was chosen from six models submitted by Warneke. e shrine is a gift of the Class of 1940 and rests in a natural setting of trees near Recreation Building. e site was chosen because of its accessibility, the surrounding trees and the fact that the sculpture would not be dwarfed by nearby buildings.

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

Tim

CURLEY

16th Year DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

Well into his second decade as the architect of the Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics program, Tim Curley’s dynamic and passionate leadership has been the driving force behind the Nittany Lions’ tremendous level of athletic and academic achievement. Named Director of Athletics on December 30, 1993, Curley’s leadership has lifted Penn State among the nation’s premier athletic departments. During the Nittany Lions’ 16 full years as members of the Big Ten Conference, Penn State has captured 17 NCAA Championships, almost double the next closest Big Ten school. Curley has seen Nittany Lion squads win 56 Big Ten titles and numerous individual national and conference crowns during his 15-plus years directing Penn State’s comprehensive and nationally-respected athletic program. e Lions have won six NCAA Championships since March 2007. In the 2008 fall semester, the women’s volleyball team won an unprecedented sixth consecutive outright Big Ten Championship and captured its second consecutive NCAA title, earning a 38-0 record. e football team won its second conference title in the past four years and played in the 2009 Rose Bowl. e women’s soccer team won its 10th consecutive Big Ten Championship, the second-longest string of Big Ten women’s titles in any sport. e field hockey team also won the Big Ten title. In the spring of 2009, the fencing team won its ninth NCAA Championship under Curley’s watch and the women’s track and field team captured its second consecutive Big Ten Outdoor title. e Nittany Lion basketball team won its first National Invitation Tournament championship, posting a program-record 27 victories. e 2007-08 sports year included four Big Ten Champion-ships and NCAA titles by the women’s volleyball team in the fall and the men’s volleyball squad in the spring. Penn State became just the second school in NCAA history to have both volleyball teams win the national championship in the same academic year. e women’s track and field team continued its rise to national prominence, winning its first Big Ten Outdoor title and finishing a program-best fourth at the NCAA Championships. Seventeen squads were represented in their respective NCAA Championships in 2008-09. An impressive eight teams finished in the Top 5 in 2007-08. Include the 56 All-Americans and 41 first-team All-Big Ten selections (48 total first-team all-conference honorees), a record student-athlete Graduation Success Rate of 89 percent and a record 11 Academic All-Americans and 2008-09 was another tremendous year of Success With Honor for the Nittany Lions. A 1976 Penn State graduate, Curley’s dedicated and enthusiastic leadership has helped Penn State capture 19 Big Ten championships or tournament titles the past four years, the second-highest total in the conference. During the fall 2005 semester, Penn State won an unprecedented five Big Ten Championships — in field hockey, football, men’s soccer, women’s soccer and women’s volleyball — becoming the first institution to win more than three titles in the fall season in the 110-year history of the Big Ten. Nittany Lion teams compiled an incredible 49-1 record against Big Ten competition in the fall. 156 PENN STATE 2009-10 SWIMMING & DIVING

In June 2009, Curley again was recognized for his efforts in helping Penn State maintain its stature as one of the nation’s premier athletic programs with his selection as the Northeast Athletic Director-of-the-Year by NACDA. He was one of just four regional Division I-A honorees and previously earned the award in 2003. As he surveys the athletic program he has been instrumental in assembling over the past 33 years, Curley can’t help but be proud of the athletic and academic accomplishments of Penn State’s 750 student-athletes in 29 varsity sports: • During a visit to the University Park campus, the late NCAA President Myles Brand stated, “Penn State is the poster child for doing it right in college sports.” • In the initial 16 years of the NACDA Directors’ Cup all-sports survey, Penn State has finished in the Top 25 every year, earning seven Top 10 finishes and four Top five placings. e Nittany Lions finished No. 9 in 2007-08 and No. 19 this past year. • In the most recent comprehensive look at the 117 colleges and universities participating in Division I football and men’s basketball, U.S. News and World Report selected Penn State as one of 10 Division I-A institutions for its College Sports Honor Roll. Data on gender equity, number of varsity sports, graduation rates, sanctions, and wins and losses were analyzed to determine the listing. • Penn State has captured 17 NCAA Championships in men’s and women’s volleyball; men’s and women’s fencing and men’s gymnastics during Curley’s tenure. Nittany and Lady Lion teams have made 29 NCAA “Final Four” appearances during his tenure. • Penn State also has established itself as a force in the highly competitive Big Ten — winning 60 regular-season or tournament titles in football, baseball, women’s basketball, field hockey, men’s gymnastics, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, women’s indoor and outdoor track and field and women’s volleyball. e Lions have won 30 Big Ten championships over the past seven years, including a school-record six in 2005-06, a mark they matched in 2008-09. • In October 2008, the NCAA reported that Penn State student-athletes earned a school-record 89 percent Graduation Success Rate, 11 points higher than the national Division I-A average. Twenty-two of Penn State’s 25 teams compiled a GSR at or above the national average of 78 percent or higher (track and field and cross country count as one sport). • Twenty-one Penn State squads earned a Graduation Success Rate higher than the national average for their sport, according to the NCAA. • e NCAA also reported in 2008 that Penn State student-athletes registered a school-record federal graduation rate of 84 percent for the entering class of 2001-02, significantly above the 64 percent national average. • e four-year graduation rate average for University Park student-athletes was 82 percent, well above the national average of 63 percent for student-athletes. e 2001-02 freshman class four-year averages and GSR were second-highest in the Big Ten to Northwestern.
