“LSU laid the groundwork for me being a professional in the way the school is run and the professors. Off the field, I learned to be a good person. On the football field, it is the training, the hard work and the dedication. LSU teaches you everything you need to be successful.” - Andrew Whitworth, Cincinnati Bengals

Campus LIFE LSU’s Memorial Tower (top main photo) was one of the first structures completed on the present campus and sits east of the quadrangle (above, left). It represents the University as a memorial to those who gave their lives during World War I. Although it currently houses the LSU Anglo-American Art Museum, plans are in process to return Memorial Tower to a military museum as originally intended. The University lakes (above, right) on the LSU campus give various recreational options.

Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Mechanical College has, throughout its 147year history, served the people of Louisiana, the region, the nation, and the world. LSU is creating a revolution, one of pervasive change and advancement. For the past seven years, the focus of the LSU community has been an increased commitment to excellence. Our progress has been dramatic and shows no sign of stopping. Having witnessed many of yesterday’s possibilities become today’s tangible realities, the LSU community set forth to capitalize on its success. The goal was to improve our standing as a nationally competitive flagship university. Following intense discussions among the LSU Board of Supervisors, campus administrators, faculty, and student leaders, the objectives required to reach this status crystallized, providing the impetus for LSU’s National Flagship Agenda.

Why LSU?

Paige Brown Diver (2004-08) 2008 SEC Champion SEC McWhorter Finalist

“When I first set foot on the LSU campus, I loved the atmosphere. The campus was beautiful, and everyone from the coaches to the professors had really impressed me. I did have hesitations before I came on my initial visit, but as soon as I got here, I realized I belonged at LSU.”

“It was really quite an honor to be able to play for LSU. Being from Lockport, everybody down there is a big LSU fan. Once I graduated from high school and had to make the decision where I was going to play, LSU was the obvious choice because I had grown up an LSU fan and it was a place where my family could watch me play. LSU really helped me grow both as a player and a person. I have nothing but fond memories of the place.”

“I was basically an in-state guy and had always thought about going to LSU for football and to get a good education. I made a lot of visits to different schools in my selection process, but everything always pointed toward LSU. My heart and my family guided me in that direction not just for the athletics, but for the academics as well. From top to bottom LSU has good people from the coaches on down the line.”

“LSU is my home. It was a place where I made my name and a place where I was able to come here and have fun. It was the best three years of my life. While you are here, have fun and become a master of time management. You need to do what you have to do to make it. Work hard. I have been blessed. Baton Rouge is the place that helped me become who I am. I will never forget this place.”

The Cox Communications Academic Center for Student-Athletes is at the forefront of today’s educational technology. Since the spring of 2009, the academic center has upgraded over 170 computers, including both PC and Mac.

Media Training

LSU is one of the few schools where student-athletes go through media training to enhance their communication skills. Dr. Tommy Karam and Dr. Shirley White are two experts in the field who give training sessions to student-athletes here on campus. The Academic Center features a mock press conference setting to get student-athletes acclimated to giving interviews in front of both print and electronic media. Karam and White record the mock interviews on camera and then provide feedback, allowing student-athletes to become more comfortable and confident when doing actual interviews.

The Library

The library provides a perfect setting for individual study, or with a tutor as a group.

Academic Center

A $15 million renovation to the Gym Armory in 2002 not only made it among the nation’s premier academic centers, but put it at the forefront. Improvements to the existing center give LSU studentathletes the best opportunity for success by providing access to the latest technology, as well as an array of expanded services.

Opened in the summer 1985, the LSU Natatorium has served as the exclusive home of the swimming and diving teams for the past 26 seasons. The complex features a 50-meter pool, which can be converted into two 25-meter or 25-yard pools with the use of bulkheads. Furthermore, the facility houses a championship diving well, which was completely renovated in the summer of 2003 with one- and threemeter springboards and five-, sevenand 10-meter platforms. The programs added new graphics and signage throughout the venue in the fall of 2011 and upgraded the scoring system in the fall of 2008, unveiling a pair of state-of-the-art videoboards.

Tiger Stadium was as loud as any I’ve heard during the dramatic fourth quarter of Saturday’s Georgia game, the festivities surrounding it as advertised. The streets were lined with purple and gold.

“Nothing like tailgating on the Bayou. LSU is my personal favorite. Maybe it’s my penchant for the spicy stuff. But there’s nothing like sampling a little gumbo, a little jambalaya and then diving face-first into a shrimp boil. The aroma just walking through the parking lot to Tiger Stadium stays with you the whole day, and the LSU fans get there early and stay late.”

And that was for a non-conference game.

“The scene is college football’s Mardi Gras – beads, music and more tasty creations than the best culinary school. Some evenings, tens of thousands of fans show up to party and stay in the parking lot during games. That’s pretty cool.”

HISTORY


About LSU Retired Jerseys

The retirement of the jerseys of Casanova, McDonald, Macklin and Augustus comes under a new provision of the LSU jersey retirement bylaws that says the retirement of an athlete’s jersey in a particular sport does not preclude a current student-athlete in that sport from wearing the jersey number in that or any other sport, subject to the discretion of the head coach. This provision applies only to jerseys retired after January 1, 2007, so the numbers worn by Maravich, Pettit, O’Neal, Cannon and Bertman may never again be worn by future student-athletes in their respective sports. To have a jersey retired at LSU, an athlete must have completed intercollegiate competition for LSU a minimum of five years prior to nomination. Athletes must have demonstrated truly unusual and outstanding accomplishments, exceeding and in addition to all criteria used for Hall of Fame selection. Nominees must have a unanimous vote of support from the Hall of Fame committee.

He led the Tigers to two Elite Eight appearances and the 1981 Final Four in Philadelphia. He still holds the school single game rebound record with 32, a mark like some of the great records in any sport that may never be broken.

Mike THE TIGER Sneaux Day

On Dec. 11, 2008, a winter storm blanketed Baton Rouge that hadn’t been seen in decades. The early white Christmas gave Mike VI, LSU’s live Bengal/ Siberian tiger, a chance to relax and play in nearly two inches of accumulation.

History of Mike

Few mascots in the country are as admired as Mike the Tiger. LSU’s live Bengal mascot serves as the graphic image of all LSU athletic teams. The school has had six mascots, with the most recent, Mike VI, taking over the reign prior to the 2007 national championship football season. LSU veterinarian Dr. David Baker began the search for the young tiger after his predecessor, Mike V, died in May 2007 of renal failure at the age of 17. The six-year-old Bengal/ Siberian mix, formerly known as “Roscoe,” was donated to LSU by Great Cats of Idaville in Idaville, Ind., a nonprofit sanctuary and rescue facility for big cats and other large carnivores. Mike’s ride through Tiger Stadium before home games in a travel trailer topped by the LSU cheerleaders is a school tradition. Before entering the stadium, his trailer on wheels is parked next to the opponent’s locker room in the southeast end of the stadium. Opposing players must make their way past Mike’s trailer to reach their locker room. Tradition dictates that the Tigers will score a touchdown for every growl issued by Mike before a football game. For many years, Mike was prompted to roar by pounding on the cage. Objections of cruel punishment brought about the use of recorded growls to play to the crowd before the games. That practice was discontinued shortly afterward and today Mike GO ONLINE:

participates in the pregame tradition without provocation. In the mid-1980’s, pranksters cut the locks on Mike IV’s cage and freed him in the early-morning hours just days before the annual LSU-Tulane clash. Mike roamed free, playfully knocking down several small pine trees in the area, before being trapped in the Bernie Moore Track Stadium where police used tranquilizer guns to capture and return the Bengal Tiger to his home. The incident was reminiscent of a kidnapping of Mike I many years ago by Tulane students before a Tiger-Green Wave battle.

The original Mike was purchased from the Little Rock Zoo in 1936 for $750, with money contributed by the student body. Originally known as “Sheik” at the time of his purchase, his name was changed to Mike to honor Mike Chambers who served as LSU’s athletic trainer when the first mascot was purchased. The first Mike was housed in the Baton Rouge Zoo for one year before a permanent home was constructed near Tiger Stadium. Mike I reigned for 20 years before dying of pneumonia.

HISTORY


Mike’s Habitat In 2005, a new environment (above) was created for Mike that is 15,000 square feet in size with lush planting, a large live oak tree, a beautiful waterfall and a stream evolving from a rocky backdrop overflowing with plants and trees. The habitat has, as a backdrop, an Italianate tower - a campanile that creates a visual bridge to the Italianate architectural vernacular that is the underpinning of the image of the entire beautiful LSU campus. This spectacular habitat features state-of-theart technologies, research, conservation and husbandry programs, as well as educational, interpretive and recreational activities. It is, in essence, one of the largest and finest Tiger habitats in the United States.

Just in time for the 1958 national championship season, Mike III was purchased from the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Wash., following a “national search” by then-athletic director Jim Corbett.

Mike IV reigned over Tiger athletics for 14 years after being donated to the school by August A. Busch III from the Dark Continent Amusement Park in Tampa, Fla, on Aug. 29, 1976. Born on May 15, 1974, Mike’s age and health were determining factors in his retirement to the Baton Rouge Zoo in 1990. Mike IV died of old age in March of 1995 at the age of 21.

Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics

Joe Alleva LSU Vice Chancellor/Director of Athletics Joe Alleva continues to bring unprecedented national recognition to LSU as Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics. Under Alleva’s leadership, LSU enjoys one of the country’s premier athletics programs with success on and off the field of competition. Now in his fourth season at LSU, Alleva is dedicated to athletic and academic excellence, and is committed to providing the opportunities and the resources necessary for student-athletes to excel in competition, in the classroom and in the community. Alleva joined the LSU family on April 4, 2008 after a highly successful tenure as director of athletics at Duke University for 10 years. Alleva’s role at LSU was further expanded in August of 2009 when vice chancellor was added to his title by the LSU Board of Supervisors. It is the first time in school history that the director of athletics has also held a vice chancellor position. Alleva was recently appointed to a five-year term on the prestigious NCAA Men’s Basketball Committee, reinforcing his position as one of the most respected athletic administrators in the country. Upon his arrival at LSU, Alleva unveiled a strategic master plan for the LSU athletics program -- “LSU: Thru and True” -- to ensure the advancement and future of LSU Athletics as an exemplary program. The central mission of the plan is to create an environment for student-athletes to reach their ultimate potential, prepare them to be champions in life and to set out goals and values for the entire athletics program. Alleva’s vision for LSU athletics facilities includes plans to enhance the appearance of Tiger Stadium and transform the North Stadium Drive corridor into a showplace for the university. Under his direction, LSU’s world-renowned track and field program received a state-of the-art running surface last year when a new track was installed in Bernie Moore Stadium. Extensive renovations to the Tiger soccer facility will be completed this fall, and future plans include a new gymnastics practice facility, a tennis complex, and renovations to the Maravich Center and field house. Alleva directed a major renovation to the University Club golf course that was completed in September 2010 and allows the LSU men’s and women’s golf teams to compete on one of the most challenging courses in the country. The renovated course helped prepare Tiger golfers John Peterson and Austin Ernst, respectively, to win 2011 NCAA men’s and women’s individual championships, marking the first time both titles were claimed by players from the same school. The Lady Tiger golfers were third in the final team standings, marking the highest finish in LSU history. LSU Athletics completed another highly successful year in 2010-11, highlighted by a Fighting Tiger football squad that posted an 11-2 mark – including a Cotton Bowl victory – and finished the season ranked No. 8 in the nation. The 2010-11 athletic year also featured Top 5 national finishes both indoors and outdoors by the men’s and women’s track and field teams. In 2008-09, all 20 LSU sports competed

in NCAA postseason play for the first time in school history and the Tiger baseball team won the national championship. This past year LSU ranked second among Southeastern Conference teams in the Learfield Director’s Cup All-Sports standings and finished in the Top 20 for the sixth year in a row. Alleva ensures that the Cox Communications Academic Center for Student-Athletes is a first-class facility that provides student-athletes the resources necessary for success in the classroom and personal development. The facility was recently enhanced by the addition of a media training center that gives student-athletes valuable assistance in improving their communications skills. And with a strong emphasis on community service and outreach programs, the implementation under Alleva’s direction of the “Geaux Givers” program fosters a relationship between the local community and LSU student-athletes, who regularly participate in philanthropic events. In addition, Alleva has bolstered the department’s L-Club program to reach out and connect with former student-athletes. Alleva oversees a staff of outstanding coaches and he made two critical additions to LSU’s coaching staff in the off-season. He lured the dynamic Nikki Caldwell to LSU to coach the Lady Tiger basketball team and then hired Beth Torina to direct the Tiger softball program, bringing a new wealth of knowledge and passion to the LSU women’s sports program. Alleva is an innovator with bold ideas that benefit not only LSU but all of Greater Baton Rouge. He has been instrumental in the planning of the Bayou Country Superfest, a two-day country music concert and festival held in Tiger Stadium each spring. The event ONLY ONE LSU

attracts nearly 100,000 visitors to the LSU campus and makes a tremendous economic impact upon the local community. Alleva has served on numerous national committees throughout his career including the Football Bowl Certification Committee, the NCAA Division I Championships/ Competition Cabinet and several Southeastern Conference and Atlantic Coast Conference committees. He became director of athletics at Duke in 1998 and his impressive tenure there propelled the university into the ranks of America’s top all-around collegiate programs. Among his outstanding list of accomplishments includes the greatest 10-year period in Duke Athletics, winning more ACC and NCAA championships than in any other decade in school history. Alleva, whose hometown is Suffern, N.Y., majored in Finance at Lehigh University and received his bachelor’s degree in 1975. While at Lehigh, Alleva was the quarterback of the football team and team captain in 1974. Alleva also played on the Lehigh baseball team. He served as a graduate assistant football coach and earned an MBA in 1976. While at Duke, Alleva played a key role in Durham’s community sports scene. He started Little League Baseball in Durham over 20 years ago, and also began the American Legion baseball program. He is a member of the North Carolina American Legion Hall of Fame, Suffern High School Hall of Fame and the Rockland County Hall of Fame. Alleva and his wife, Annie, have three children, J.D., Jeff, and Jenny.

DeLyser is a cultural-historical geographer. Her research has been both ethnographic and historical, and most of it questions how different built landscapes can help make the past meaningful in the present. Much of her published research has focused on two different studies. One was a many-year ethnographic study of a ghost town in California (Bodie State Historic Park) where she examined how images and ideas about the American mythic West became meaningful to the tourists who visited the town. The second was an historical study that examined a 19th century novel (Ramona) and how it changed the way people understood (and still understand) southern California’s past. Her current research concerns early women aviators and how they used their practices of flying to advance feminism in the post-suffrage era. DeLyser teaches graduate courses in cultural geography, qualitative research, and academic and professional writing. She has also taught undergraduate courses in cultural, and urban geography, and an introductory world-regional geography course. DeLyser is a first-generation American -- her parents were Dutch immigrants and English is her second language. She also has language abilities in Russian and Spanish. DeLyser’s hobbies include driving/riding antique cars and motorcycles. She is also a licensed pilot and co-owns a Citabria, which is a two-place aerobatic airplane.

DAVID GEYER Co-Head Coach Head Swimming Coach Second Season as Co-Head Coach (Seventh at LSU)

When Dave Geyer was promoted to co-head coach of the LSU men’s and women’s swimming and diving programs alongside Doug Shaffer in April 2010, he envisioned a pair of teams that could consistently compete among the top 15 in the nation and top five in the Southeastern Conference. After the first-year head coach helped lead LSU to its most successful collective season in more than a decade, Geyer is well on his way to realizing his vision. Geyer, entering his second season as head swimming coach, put the men’s and women’s swimming teams back on the map -- both nationally and in the SEC -- in 2010-11. The LSU women’s team delivered its highest NCAA finish in 18 seasons, registering 14th at the 2011 NCAA Championships. Eight swimmers earned invitations to the national meet -- LSU’s highest qualifying contingent in more than 15 years -- and five athletes combined to claim 14 All-America honors. Senior Jane Trepp became the first swimmer in program history to capture NCAA first-team All-America status in all three of her individual races in a single season with top-eight finishes in the 50 freestyle, 100 butterfly and 100 breaststroke. Sophomore Amanda Kendall joined her teammate Trepp as a first-team All-American in the 100 fly, won the consolation final of the 100 free and also posted a top-16 finish in the 50 free. Prior to the accomplishments of Trepp and Kendall at NCAA’s, the LSU women’s program had not seen an individual swimming AllAmerican since 1997, and both boasted top times ranked in the top 10 nationally in their three best races by the end of the season. In addition to the duo, junior Samantha Goates added two more honorable mention All-America accolades as a member of the 200 free and 200 medley relays, while senior Kannon Betzen (200 free relay) and sophomore Jana Ruimerman (200 medley relay) became honorable mention All-Americans for the first time. On the men’s side, senior Hannes Heyl and sophomore Craig Hamilton gave the Tigers a 26th-place finish at NCAA’s, their highest finish since 2005. Heyl proved to be one of the top 100 butterfly performers in the country, racing to a new program record of 45.77 in the NCAA prelims before collecting his first career first-team All-America accolade with a seventh-place finish in the championship final. Hamilton emerged as one of the top distance freestyle underclassmen in the country, taking 15th and his first career honorable mention All-America honor with a new school record in the 1650 free (15:02.32).

In addition to their success at NCAA’s, the men’s and women’s teams burst onto the scene and turned some heads both nationally and in the conference with their stellar performances at the 2011 SEC Swimming Championships. The Lady Tigers and Tigers each placed fifth at SEC’s, marking the first time both teams posted top-five finishes at the conference championships in a single season since 2000. However, the squads stood out way beyond the team standings with a plethora of individual and relay accolades. At the conclusion of the four-day swimming competition, LSU swimmers combined to win an SEC individual championship, collect 14 medals and shatter an SEC record and 12 program marks, while four athletes earned All-SEC recognition and two made the SEC All-Freshmen team. No swimmer had a bigger impact than Trepp, who became the first Lady Tiger swimmer in 14 seasons to win an SEC title, and she did it in record-setting fashion, breaking the league mark with a blistering time of 58.94. The senior was just the ninth individual in U.S. Open history to reach the wall in under 59 seconds. While Trepp’s performance was extraordinary, the emergence of young underclassmen such as Kendall, Ruimerman, Sara Haley and Torrey Bussey along with a pair of Lady Tiger sprint relays under Geyer’s guidance was also remarkable. Kendall raced to a pair of bronze medals in the 100 free and 100 fly and played a major role in helping the 200 medley and 200 free relays to medal finishes. Her 22.87 split on the fly leg of the 200 medley relay coupled with Trepp’s 26.57 breaststroke split spearheaded the squad of Ruimerman, Trepp, Kendall and Goates to second-place and an NCAA automatic qualifying time of 1:36.91. Ruimerman also stepped up in her sophomore season, providing the Lady Tigers with a solid backstroke leg on the medley relays and reaching the consolation finals of both backstroke races at SEC’s, while Haley was the bronze medal winner in the 200 fly with a program-record 1:56.82 clocking. The El Dorado Hills, Calif., native went from 18th in the event as a freshman to third in the league in just one season under Geyer’s tutelage. Bussey, an SEC All-Freshmen Team performer and NCAA Qualifier, advanced to a pair of championship finals at the conference meet and broke program records in the 200 breast and 200 IM. The Cari, N.C., native was the Lady Tigers’ highest NCAA finisher in the 200 IM since 1997 and first swimmer to race in the 200 breast at the national competition since 2003. Heyl led the men to their fifth-place finish at SEC’s as the German swam to a bronze medal in the 100 fly and reached the ‘A’ final of the 100 back with a personal best of 47.15, while Hamilton claimed his third program record at the conference meet with a 4:22.17 clocking in the 500 free.

Coaches Sophomore Andrei Tuomola also took a step forward in his second season, qualifying for the championship final of the 50 free and 100 breast at SEC’s and recording a new personal best and program top-10 time in the 50 free. On the international stage, Trepp continued to assert herself as a world-class short-course performer. At the 2010 FINA World Shortcourse Championships in December, the Estonian advanced to the championship final of the 100-meter individual medley with the eighth-fastest time in the world (59.77) for the calendar season before swimming to fourth-place in the final. While athletic success is an annual goal, Geyer equally preaches to his student-athletes the importance of excelling out of the water -- particularly in the classroom and in the community. This was evident in 2010-11 as 19 swimmers and divers were named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll, while the men’s and women’s programs logged 362.5 hours of community service, a 229-hour increase from the previous season and among LSU’s team leaders. Furthermore, Trepp was named LSU’s most decorated scholarathlete as she was the school’s female nomination for the prestigious SEC H. Boyd McWhorter Postgraduate Scholarship, the highest academic honor bestowed by the conference each year. In addition to her phenomenal athletic accomplishments, the senior also sported a 3.8 cumulative grade point average in psychology. Prior to his promotion to co-head coach, Geyer spent five seasons as an assistant coach at LSU where he worked with all phases of the programs. He was instrumental in helping numerous athletes shatter program records and earn All-America honors while also playing a vital role in the recruitment of top-level international student-athletes. In 2008, Geyer trained former LSU standout and Olympian Miko Malberg prior to the Beijing Olympic Games where the former All-American went on to set an Estonian national record in the 50-meter freestyle (22.37) and place 25th overall.

DOUG SHAFFER Co-Head Coach Head Diving Coach 10th Season Overall (Second as Co-Head Coach)

The LSU diving program is one of storied tradition, and no one has had a more profound impact in the Tigers’ recent success than Doug Shaffer.

Vieke, McKinney and Schmidt also tallied career-best and program top-10 scores at different points in the season.

In his 10th overall season with LSU, Shaffer was promoted to co-head coach of the men’s and women’s swimming and diving programs along with Dave Geyer in April 2010 and enters his second season as head diving coach.

Outside of collegiate competition, several of Shaffer’s athletes made the commitment to train for national competition this past summer and saw their efforts pay off when three divers -- Gemberling, St. Germain and sophomore Jesse Lyman -- qualified for the 2010 AT&T National Diving Championships. Gemberling led the trio at the elite competition, advancing to the semifinals of the three-meter.

Known for having an eye for talent, Shaffer scours the country for gifted divers who fit the program and molds them into some of LSU’s most successful student-athletes. In his previous nine years, Shaffer has produced 11 NCAA All-Americans, two Southeastern Conference champions, an SEC Diver of the Year and five SEC Freshman Divers of the Year. Moreover, Shaffer’s divers continue to shine academically as his athletes have been awarded LSU Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors four times, and numerous divers have received prestigious post-graduate scholarships. Last season, junior Matt Vieke was named the Tiger Athletic Foundation Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year and a recipient of the Wally Pontiff Jr., Academic Excellence Award, as the Indianapolis native maintains a perfect 4.0 cumulative grade point average in management.

When Shaffer was promoted to co-head coach of the programs along with Geyer, the duo sought to build a well-rounded program that not only emphasized athletic success but also excellence in the classroom and the community. This was evident in 2010-11 as 19 swimmers and divers were named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll, while the men’s and women’s programs logged 362.5 hours of community service, a 229-hour increase from the previous season and among LSU’s team leaders. Prior to his promotion, Shaffer served eight seasons as LSU’s diving coach where he maintained the program’s tradition of excellence.

The LSU diving corps embarked upon another successful season in 2010-11, helping both the men’s and women’s teams register top-five finishes at the SEC Championships for the first time since 2000.

In 2009-10, St. Germain became the fifth LSU diver in six seasons to emerge as the SEC Freshman Diver of the Year and was named to the SEC All-Freshmen Team, while Gemberling proved to be one of the most improved divers in the SEC in his sophomore campaign.

Furthermore, all six divers -- including four underclassmen -- qualified and competed at the NCAA Zone Diving Regional, while sophomore Rebecca St. Germain continued her ascension into the SEC’s elite, and freshman Daniel Helm developed into one of the conference’s top newcomers.

A native of Levittown, Pa., Gemberling placed sixth in both springboard events at the 2010 SEC Championships, broke the school record in the three-meter (393.07) in a dual-meet against Texas A&M and claimed program top-five marks in the one-meter and platform.

After a fine first-year campaign in which she garnered SEC Freshman Diver of the Year honors, St. Germain took her craft to another level this past season, capturing a silver medal and breaking the program record in the one-meter springboard with a phenomenal performance at SEC’s.

In 2008-09, the Tigers’ diving coach helped one of his athletes earn an invitation to the NCAA Championships for the seventh-consecutive season as senior Niko Dalman competed at the national meet for the third time in his career. Dalman also added the school’s one-meter record to his collection and finished his career as the LSU record-holder in both the oneand three-meter springboard events.

In arguably the most remarkable head-to-head one-meter battle in SEC Championships history under the six-dive format, St. Germain and South Carolina’s Taryn Zack each delivered stellar dives round after round, hoping to fend off the other for the conference crown. Although Zack prevailed with an SEC meet-record of 336.55, St. Germain produced the third-highest score in meet history, 331.15, en route to second-place and All-SEC Second Team accolades. Helm emerged as yet another impact freshman performer for the LSU diving program, claiming fifth-place in the men’s three-meter at SEC’s and receiving SEC All-Freshmen Team recognition. A product of Beaverton, Ore., Helm also posted program top-five scores in all three events and was named SEC Male Diver of the Week on two separate occasions during the regular season. In addition to St. Germain and Helm, Vieke barely missed qualifying for the NCAA Championships after his fine effort at the Zone ‘D’ Regional where he was tabbed the first alternate to NCAA’s, while junior Brian Gemberling, sophomore Elle Schmidt and freshman Sean McKinney each contributed points at the conference meet with top-16 finishes.

The 2007-08 season proved to be Shaffer’s finest season as the Tigers’ diving coach. Shaffer coached sophomore Rachel Ware to her third AllAmerica accolade in two years with a 12th-place finish in the one-meter springboard at NCAA’s. His athletes also had a superb showing at SEC’s as a conference-high four LSU divers received medals for placing in the top three of their respective events. Ware and senior Paige Brown enjoyed two of the best competitions of their careers at that meet with both departing Tuscaloosa, Ala., as conference champions. Ware won the one-meter championship and captured the runner-up spot in the three-meter en route to SEC Female Diver of the Year honors. Brown beat out 20 other competitors to take the platform title with a school-record score of 300.30. Both were also named to the All-SEC First Team, the first Lady Tigers to receive all-conference recognition since 2003. Shaffer earned the SEC Women’s Diving Coach of the Year award for his efforts in guiding the duo to conference excellence.

HISTORY


Coaches Under Shaffer’s tutelage, the men’s side finished second in the points standings among diving teams at the conference meet, and a pair of Tiger divers reached the awards podium with record-shattering performances. Dalman took home a medal in the three-meter springboard, breaking a then-LSU record in the event with a score of 391.55 to place third. Freshman Michael Neubacher followed two days later with a runner-up finish in the platform competition, crushing the school record with a robust six-dive total of 431.55. Neubacher, the SEC’s highest scoring freshman, joined Ware, Dalman and Nathan Schreiber as the fourth-straight athlete in the Shaffer era to earn the distinction as the conference’s top freshman diver. Outside the pool, Brown truly exemplified the meaning of a student-athlete, joining a long list of former LSU divers who have excelled at the highest levels academically. The Zionsville, Ind., native, who graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in biological engineering, became the third LSU diver in two seasons to be named a finalist for the esteemed SEC H. Boyd McWhorter Post-graduate Scholarship. Former standouts Hali Saucier and Andrew Keane were nominated in 2007. She was also the first athlete in school history to earn a spot in the exclusive Tiger Twelve, which recognizes 12 graduating seniors who have shown great academic success and contributed significantly to the Baton Rouge community, and received the Wally Pontiff Jr. Academic Excellence Award, which goes to the school’s top scholar-athletes. In addition, Brown registered the team’s highest grade point average and was selected to give the commencement speech at the engineering school’s graduation in 2008. Shaffer’s list of Tiger All-Americans began in 2002-03 upon his arrival. His guidance enabled three divers to earn five NCAA All-American performances, including junior Jessica Wantz and seniors Barb Gorst and Kyle VanArsdall. Wantz finished fourth in the three-meter springboard. Both Gorst and VanArsdall scored in the top-16 in the platform. The following season Shaffer guided Wantz to a third-place finish overall in the three-meter at NCAA’s, which gave her first-team All-America honors. A third career All-America finish followed in the one-meter. In 2004-05, Dalman entered his freshman season with little experience. Seven months later, he embarked on a 12th-place finish as an All-American in the one-meter. He also became the first diver in school history to be named SEC Freshman Diver of the Year. Dalman added to his accolades with a top-12 finish in the platform at the 2006 NCAA Championships.

Shaffer was no stranger to leading a successful collegiate diving program before taking the job in Baton Rouge. He was the head coach at UCLA in 1988-89 and then at the University of Minnesota from 1989-96. Shaffer experienced a great deal of success at Minnesota as he was honored as Big Ten Diving Coach of the Year three times – twice on the women’s side and once for the men’s team. Shaffer coached 11 Big Ten champions, 29 AllAmericans and two NCAA champions while at Minnesota. He was named NCAA Diving Coach of the Year in 1993. Shaffer also coached three Pac-10 champions and four All-Americans during his tenure at UCLA. He has coached the United States in numerous international competitions since 1989, including the U.S. National Diving teams in China, Sweden, Spain and the United States. Shaffer served as the assistant competition manager during the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta and was recruited to be the head diving coach at the Sheffield, England, High Performance Center. There, he coached five Olympians on the Lottery Funded World Class Performance Program but declined a four-year contract extension for the opportunity to coach at LSU. Shaffer graduated from UCLA in 1986 with a B.A. degree in history. He was an 11-time U.S. National champion, the 1986 NCAA Diver of the Year and the NCAA one-meter and three-meter champion in 1986 for the Bruins. One of the few divers to defeat the legendary Greg Louganis, Shaffer ousted the four-time Olympian five times in 1987, three of which were in U.S. National competition.

LANCE ASTI Assistant Coach • Second Season

Born: July 18, 1979, in Miami, Fla. Hometown: Bloomfield Hills, Mich. College: University of Tennessee; B.S. in Child Development, 2001; Ohio University, M.S. in Coaching Education, 2003 Wife: Elizabeth Asti Children: Bryden (6), Gaines (4), Campbell (2) Lance Asti, who spearheaded the LSU swimming sprint group to unprecedented success in 2010-11, enters his second season as an assistant coach and the recruiting coordinator of the men’s and women’s programs. Under Asti’s direction this past year, the LSU sprint ranks enjoyed arguably its finest collective season in more than two decades as the swimmers in his training group produced five NCAA first-team All-America honors, an individual Southeastern Conference championship, an SEC record, four All-SEC selections and 11 medal finishes at the conference meet. Senior Jane Trepp emerged into one of the nation’s premier sprinters with Asti’s guidance, becoming the first Lady Tiger swimmer to win an SEC title since 1997 when she broke the league record in the 100-yard breaststroke (58.94 seconds) at the 2011 SEC Championships. The All-SEC First-Team performer was also the first swimmer in program history to earn first-team All-America accolades in all three of her individual events in a single season as she captured top-eight finishes in the 50 freestyle, 100 butterfly and 100 breaststroke at the NCAA Championships. She also set new school records in all three events in her senior season. Trepp’s SEC-record mark in the 100 breast put her in elite company as one of only nine swimmers in U.S. Open history to break the 59-second mark in the event, while her school-record 21.97 clocking in the 50 free was the first sub22 second time in program annals. . While Trepp’s success was exceptional, the development of sophomore Amanda Kendall into one of the top underclassmen at both the national and conference levels was also remarkable. A four-time SEC medalist and All-SEC Second-Team performer, Kendall joined Trepp as a first-team All-American in the 100 butterfly, claimed honorable mention All-America honors in the 50 and 100 free and broke school marks in the 100 and 200 free. At the conclusion of the season, both Trepp and Kendall boasted top times ranked in the nation’s top 10 in their three best races.

In addition, there was not a more prolific women’s tandem in the conference in the 50 free than the trio of Trepp, Kendall and Goates as each qualified for the SEC championship final of that race last season, the most of any team in the league. Prior to LSU, Asti served as the sprint coach and recruiting coordinator for the Clemson men’s and women’s programs in four seasons where he helped numerous sprinters enjoy significant success and led the program to two consecutive top-25 recruiting classes. During his time at Clemson, Asti helped sprinters qualify for the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials, 2009 World Championship Trials and NCAA Championships. In 2008-09, he guided women’s swimmer Rachel Regone to her third straight Atlantic Coast Conference silver medal in the 50-yard freestyle and a schoolrecord time of 22.24. On the men’s side, Asti led Eric Lane to a school record in the 100 breaststroke (54.70) and numerous swimmers to program top-10 times. No stranger to SEC competition, Asti was a decorated swimmer and studentathlete at the University of Tennessee where he earned NCAA honorable mention All-America honors, Academic All-America status and was a finalist for the prestigious SEC H. Boyd McWhorter Postgraduate Scholarship as well as the university’s Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 1999-2000. He graduated from Tennessee with a degree in Child Development in 2001. After his career at Tennessee, Asti enrolled in Ohio University where he earned a Master of Science in Coaching Education and served as a graduate assistant coach with the swimming and diving team. Following his tenure with Ohio University, Asti gained experience on the club level, coaching for the Lexington (Ky.) Dolphins program. Asti is married to the former Elizabeth Flynt, and the couple has three children – Bryden, Gaines and Campbell.

On the men’s side, senior Hannes Heyl raced to his first career first-team All-America honor after advancing to the championship final of the 100 fly at NCAA’s with a program record of 45.77 and registered the program’s secondfastest time in the 100 free, 43.39. Internationally, Heyl stood out at the 2011 German World Championship Trials where he took runner-up honors in the 50-meter fly with a FINA ‘A’ cut and world top-10 time of 23.57. At SEC’s, the German swam to third-place in the 100 fly and reached the ‘A’ final of the 100 backstroke after qualifying with a personal best of 47.15, third in school history. Sophomore Andrei Tuomola also contributed significantly to the men’s efforts at SEC’s, delivering a top-eight finish in the 50 free with a personal best and program top-10 mark of 19.71, while racing to sixth in the 100 breast (53.99). In relay competition, the Lady Tiger sprinters established themselves as a force to be reckoned with at SEC’s as Trepp, Kendall and fellow sprinter Samantha Goates, a two-time honorable mention All-American in 2011, teamed with backstroker Jana Ruimerman to post an NCAA automatic qualifying time of 1:36.91 in the 200 medley relay en route to a silver-medal finish at the conference meet. The sprint trio along with senior Kannon Betzen also led the Lady Tigers to a bronze finish and school record in the 200 free relay (1:28.98) at SEC’s.

Brandy Collins, who was instrumental in helping LSU swimming reach new heights in 2010-11, begins her second season as an assistant coach with the men’s and women’s programs.

championship team in 2008, came to Baton Rouge after serving as a graduate assistant coach for her alma mater and the Silver Group head coach at Ford Aquatics in Tucson, Ariz.

Collins made an immediate impact to the breaststroke and individual medley ranks where she trained three NCAA competitors -- including an All-American -- and two SEC All-Freshmen Team performers. The athletes in her group also shattered three individual program records, posted 14 NCAA provisional qualifying marks and recorded 18 program top-10 times.

In 2009-10, Collins worked with the breaststroke and individual medley groups and assisted former Arizona assistant and new Missouri head coach Greg Rhodenbaugh.

Under Collins’ direction, freshmen Torrey Bussey and Cari Blalock developed into two of the top freshman swimmers in the SEC.

During her tenure as Silver Group head coach at Ford Aquatics, Collins oversaw the day-to-day operations of the group as well as the training and development of more than 50 swimmers from ages 9-14, while also serving as the head coach of Tucson Tri-Women.

Bussey, an NCAA qualifier and member of the SEC All-Freshmen Team, broke program records in the 200 breast (2:11.72) and 200 IM (1:58.23) and registered the program’s second-fastest time ever in the 100 breast (1:01.31).

As a student-athlete, Collins was a member of three Pacific-10 championship teams at Arizona in addition to its 2008 NCAA championship team as a sprint butterfly and freestyle performer.

Blalock, a fellow NCAA qualifier and SEC All-Freshmen Team performer, took down a 14-year-old school record in the 400 IM, played a role on the Lady Tigers’ record-breaking 800 freestyle relay and posted the second- and thirdfastest times in program annals in the 200 fly and 200 IM, respectively.

A Pac-10 Post-graduate scholarship recipient in 2008, Collins graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies and is currently pursuing a master’s in Sport Management. Collins, 25, is engaged to Philip Maben, a current member of the LSU swimming and diving support staff.

Steve Mellor enters his first year as assistant coach following two and a half successful seasons as a graduate assistant at North Carolina State.

Likenauger, Henley, Taylor Harris, Ivan Kopas and Jonathan Boffa all qualified for Nationals or Olympic Trials from 2009-2011 under Mellor’s watch.

Mellor served as head coach of NC State’s club team, the Wolfpack Aquatics, in 2010 and 2011 after serving as assistant coach in the summer of 2009.

Mellor’s illustrious career began on the international stage with his selections to the British Senior Teams in 2005 and 2007, as well the 2005 Mare Nostrum Grand Prix Tour. He competed in the European Championships is 2007.

Mellor’s responsibilities with NC State focused on middle and long distance groups, and extended to both male and female swimmers. Under Mellor’s two and a half year watch, nine women’s and three men’s school records were broken. The highlight to Mellor’s brief coaching career was the close correlation between Mellor and swimmer Mason McGee’s vast improvements. Shreveport, La. native McGee achieved two top-8 performances in the 200meter free and the 800m free at US Nationals in 2009.

Mellor holds two NC State records in the 200 back and the 400 IM. He was elected team captain for three straight seasons from 2005-2008.

2011-2012 Women’s Season Preview

AMANDA KENDALL After one of the finest seasons in program history that witnessed the Lady Tigers finish fifth at the Southeastern Conference Championships and 14th at the NCAA Championships, the opportunity to crack into the upper echelon of college swimming and diving and finish in the top-12 at the NCAA Championships has arrived. “Our goal has shifted a little bit from last year,” co-head coach Dave Geyer said. “Last season we put on the board that we wanted to be top-five in the SEC, top-20 in the country and carry a 3.0 GPA. We accomplished all of that last year. You obviously want to raise the standard for a team to create new challenges for them. We want to break into that top-12 realm at the NCAA level.” The Tigers will look to replace one of the best sprinters in program history in ten-time All-American Jane Trepp, LSU’s record holder in the 50 freestyle, 100 butterfly and 100 breaststroke. Trepp along with fouryear letter athletes Kannon Betzen, Ali Sanford and Brooke Barnett will need to be replaced by a multitude of returning starters and highly rated recruits. “We did lose a couple of seniors that were NCAA point scorers,” Geyer said. “Obviously losing Jane Trepp, who made a final at three events at the NCAA Championship, will be a big hit. We think that junior Amanda Kendall has the potential to replace those swims and step up and final in three events. Freshman Marlene Niemi coming in will help out on

those relays to try and score points as well.” The women’s squad bodes expectations that should break multiple school records and allow the team to reach heights unseen in LSU history. Kendall, recently selected to participate for the United States National Team at the 2011 Pan American Games after posting a seventh place finish and top-50 time in the world for the 2011 cycle in the 100-meter freestyle at the ConocoPhillips US National Championships, will lead a talented core of swimmers that return five NCAA Championship qualifiers in senior Samantha Goates, juniors Sara Haley and Jana Ruimerman and sophomore Torrey Bussey. The Tigers also will add talented freshman swimmers in Finnish Niemi, Estonian Katlin Sepp and Amber Carter. Divers, junior Elle Schmidt and freshman Alex Bettridge, will join the swimmers. “I’m looking for the divers to contribute at dual-meets, our various invitationals, the SEC Championships and the NCAA Championships,” co-head coach Doug Shaffer said of his divers. Another challenging dual-meet schedule awaits the Tigers as they look to improve on their 13-4 dual-meet record from the previous campaign. The women’s side will face off against SEC opponents Alabama and Florida as well non-conference powers Texas A&M and Florida State.

FREESTYLE

Sophomore Mikayda Mills will add depth to the 50 free as she recorded a season-best lead-off split of 24.43 in the 50 free to help her 200 free relay squad earn second in a quadruple meet against Houston, Rice and Tulane. Furthermore, freshman Amber Carter’s top 50 free time in high school of 24.08 should add her into the mix. “I think Carter has a great deal of potential and development,” Geyer said. “I want to believe that after her freshman year there are going to be a lot of programs looking at us and wondering where she came from.” The Fairfax, Va., native Kendall also holds claim to LSU’s 200 free program record (1:44.95), which she set during the team’s record setting 800 free relay at the SEC Championships. Haley, primarily a fly competitor, adds quality to the 200 free after notching a time of 1:51.46 against Texas A&M in last season’s victory. In addition, Haley also competes in the 500 free and cranked out the Tigers top time of the season (4:52.09) and sixth overall in program history in that event at the SEC Championships. She will be joined in the dis-

is the sprint freestyle, particularly the 100 free, where the Tigers return Kendall, the program record holder in the event with a time of 47.90. She emerged victoriously in the consolation final and earned her first of four Honorable Mention All-America Honors in the 100 free (48.12) at the NCAA Championships and should break into the championship final this year. Kendall’s long course 100-meter free time of 55.08 at US Nationals pitted her in seventh place among the top swimmers in the world and should translate into increased success in short course-yards. Goates, a four-time NCAA Honorable Mention All-American, raced to a personalbest 100 free time of 50.00 at the NCAA Championships. “Samantha is our lone senior on the women’s side,” Geyer said. “We’re looking for some leadership and some guidance from her. The team looks up to her. She is on board with that. She is swimming for the team and is here for the coaches. She is ready to get this senior year going and finish the best that she

can be.” Junior Chelsea Griffiths will contribute in the 100 free after primarily swimming free in relays. She registered a career-best 52.00 leading off the 400 free relay at the Cougar Classic. Moving over to the 50 free, Kendall’s top 50 free time of 22.04 leaves her at second place in program history and .07 seconds behind Trepp. Goates posted the third fastest 50 free mark in program history with a time of 22.55 at the NCAA Championships after qualifying for the championship final at the SEC Championships. Incoming freshman Niemi holds a mark of 25.23 in the 50-meter free, which translates to one of the top 50-yard free times of any collegiate freshman swimmer. “It will be interesting to watch how Niemi develops,” Geyer said. “She already has an elite 50 freestyle under her belt, both in long course and short course meters. Her time converts to about the same that Jane Trepp swam coming into her senior year. That is going to be huge as far as the individual 50 free and relays go.”

BACKSTROKE

The backstroke will be another one of

LSU’s strengths behind a quartet of returning swimmers in Ruimerman, Griffiths, Goates and Glass in addition to the newcomer Sepp. Ruimerman stepped up significantly to give LSU a solid back leg on relays and saw her efforts rewarded with All-America and All-SEC recognition. Her top 100 back time of 54.58 during the back leg of the 400 medley relay at the NCAA Championships was good enough for fourth place in program history. Similarly, her top 200 back time of 1:57.14 at the SEC Championships in a 13th place finish was good enough for second place in program history and an NCAA automatic qualifying time. Goates maintains two top-10 program records in the 100 back and 200 back. She set

her lifetime best and third best program mark in the 200 back (1:57.52), and did the same in the 100 back (55.43) with the seventh best finish in program history in 2008. She placed 25th at the NCAA Championships with a time of 55.80. Griffiths ranked second on the team behind Ruimerman this past season in the 100 back (55.42) after finishing 20th at the SEC Championships, which was good enough for sixth all-time in program history. She will also compete in the 200 back. “Griffiths has some natural gifts in the water that a lot of our athletes do not have,” Geyer said. “We’re just waiting for that to come around and for her to take advantage of the resources here for her to do that. She has a new focus coming into the season and I am excited to see how she responds.” Glass contributed in the 200 back and posted the ninth best time in program history at the SEC Championships with a time of 2:00.52 Sepp carries a decorated international resume including the Baltic record in the 100-meter back (1:01.13) and 200-meter back (2:11.73) in short course. “The conversion factor at her backstroke puts her as the top backstroker coming in,” Geyer said. “You still have to race the races and preform well while you’re here. The women’s class was a small class, but there is definitely some punch to it.”

BREASTSTROKE

A trio of returning breaststrokers led by

Bussey and sophomore Jessica Kopcso and Emily Schwabe hold top-10 program records and should match up competitively with the rest of the SEC. Bussey, a member of the All-SEC Freshman Team and an NCAA qualifier, holds a tight grip on the 200 breast program record (2:11.72) after clocking 23rd at the NCAA Championships. Her 100 breast time of 1:01.31 set at the SEC Championships qualified her for the ‘A’ Final and places her second place in school history behind Trepp’s SEC record 58.94. “As a freshman she came in and set a couple of team records, so we’re excited for her coming back for her sophomore season,” Geyer said. “We’re looking for her to take that experience from the NCAA level that she gained, bring that back and score some more points.” The Abita Springs, La., native Kopcso claimed 19th at the SEC Championships in the 100 breast with a personal best ‘B’ cut time of 1:02.89 that placed her at sixth on the

She also will compete in the 200 breast after delivering a sixth place finish in the 200 breast at the Cougar Classic. “Kopcso is an in-state talent and I like to try to grab any in state talent that comes through here,” Geyer said. “We want to set up our walls as swimming grows within the state. She had a pretty successful season last year. She threw down some of her best times.” Schwabe enjoyed a stellar freshman season and finished 15th at the SEC Championships in the 200 breast en route to contributing points and a fifth-best program mark (2:15.33).

BUTTERFLY

The Lady Tiger’s are in good hands in the 100 fly with Kendall, but the dynamic 200 fly duo of Haley and Lawson will look make headway after impressive leaps in their performances from freshman to sophomore year. Carter will look to crack the 100 fly and 200 fly lineup in her first season in competition. Kendall and Trepp battled last year for the top spot in program history in the 100 fly, with Trepp setting the program record at the Cougar Classic with a time of 52.11 and Kendall earning a bronze medal at the SEC Championships only .03 seconds behind to place her second all-time. Haley became the program record holder in the 200 fly at the SEC Championships with a bronze medal performance and a time of 1:56.82, which qualified her for the NCAA Championships where she placed 19th. Her 100 fly time (53.17) from her freshman campaign puts her third in program history. Lawson made strides her sophomore season registering points at the SEC Championship in the 200 fly (2:00.29), which placed her sixth in program history. “Lawson and Sara Haley are kind of that dynamic duo with the 200-yard butterfly,” Geyer said. “They’re both from the same class as well. She had a frustrating freshman year, and we used the summer between freshman and sophomore year to refocus. She came back and had a dynamic sophomore year. She had a terrific long course season, and I think she will try and keep that momentum going into her junior year.” Carter arrives on campus with a lifetime best 100 fly time of 55.91, which should improve with increased training and development her freshman season.

TORREY BUSSEY

INDIVIDUAL MEDLEY

The individual medley squad returns four

competitors in Bussey, Wood and Ruimerman who have the opportunity to score points at the SEC Championship and qualify for the NCAA Championship. Bussey ranked seventh at the SEC Championship in the 200 IM with a program best time of 1:58.23. She also competes in the 400 IM and took first place in that event against Florida State last season. Wood also participates in both IM events and maintains her spot as sixth in program history in both the 200 IM (2:01.75) and 400 IM (4:19.08). Her top times in both events earned her NCAA ‘B’ cuts. “Wood had a phenomenal summer season,” Geyer said. “She is motivated, excited and driven right now. As far as any dark horse athletes on our team go that will step up at the SEC Championships and possibly the NCAA Championships, she could be it.” Ruimerman, primarily an excellent backstroker, contributed in the 400 IM at the SEC Championships and notched the seventh best time in program history (4:19.91).

RELAYS

Following a season that witnessed new

program records in three of the five relay events, the 200 freestyle relay (1:28.98), 800 freestyle relay (7:12.73) and the 400 medley relay (3:37.29), the Tigers will work all season to figure out the right relay combination. “If we look at what I talked about last year going into the season with how we thought relays were going to be, by the time we got to November, they changed,” Geyer said. “By the time we got to the SEC Championships, they changed again.” The 200 free relay notched a 10th place finish at the NCAA Championships and captured the bronze medal at the SEC Championships. The 200 medley relay (1:36.91) cranked out a silver medal at the SEC Championships as well as finishing 10th at the NCAA Championships. The incoming freshmen will need to replace Trepp and Betzen in the 200 free relay and the 800 relay, but three of the four positions in the program record setting 400 medley are returning in Ruimerman, Haley and Kendall. Someone will need to step in and fill the shoes Trepp has left in all three relays. “We talk about this all the time with our program, nothing is really given,” Geyer said. “None of our relay teams are really set. With the different freshman coming in such as Sepp, Niemi and Carter, the relays are defi-

nitely wide open. Everyone is going to have to prove themselves in the water to see what happens with who is swimming in the relays.”

DIVING

The Tigers diving duo of junior Elle Schmidt and freshman Alex Bettridge will be a force to be reckoned with in dual-meets, conference championships and likely the NCAA Championships. The Mansfield, Ohio native Schmidt put together a solid season in which she recorded career highs in all three of her diving events. She scored in two of three events at SEC’s and qualified for NCAA Zone ‘D’ Diving Regional. Her 1-meter dive score of 295.35 against Incarnate Word was good enough for 10th in program history. She dove to 15th in both the three-meter (263.55) and platform competition (207.45) at SEC’s. “Schmidt has done a good job in her career at being competitive at our dual-meet level and scoring at our conference championships,” Shaffer said. “I think she has the ability of being a contender at our conference championships. With her development going into her junior year, I’m looking for her to step up in that capacity.” Bettridge brings national level experience after competing in this past summer’s AT&T US Diving Championships. She was one of the best divers in the state of Texas during her high school career and finished in the top four all four years of high school at the Texas High School State Championships. “Bettridge has a solid competitive background coming out of the Junior Olympic and the Senior US National competitions,” Shaffer said. “She is going to be a force in our dual-meet competitions. I think she is a good candidate to be a finalist at SEC Championships and is a good candidate for securing the SEC Frehsman Diver of the Year award. I look at Alex as someone who can qualify for the NCAA Championships.”

2011-2012 Men’s Season Preview CRAIG HAMILTON

Following the best season on the men’s side since 2005 after placing fifth at the SEC Championships and 26th at the NCAA Championships, the men will look to replace a plethora of competitors with the maturation of a deep junior class and an influx of talented newcomers. “It is going to be a challenging year,” co-head coach Dave Geyer said. “We lost a core group of seniors, including Hannes Heyl who was a sub 45-second butterfly swimmer and an NCAA AllAmerican. We have Craig Hamilton as our only returning NCAA scorer. I think with some of our freshmen and transfers coming in, we have the potential to have a great season. It has to be a team effort to buy into our philosophy and come together as a unit.” The Tigers core is comprised of Hamilton, senior Simon Diefenthal, juniors Nick Kunkel, Sean Roddy and Andrei Tuomola. Tiger fans should become familiar with the five-deep diving

squad that will join the swimmers. Versatile senior Matt Vieke will be joined on the springboard by sophomores Daniel Helm, Jesse Lyman, Sean McKinney and Kevin Leong. Coming off of an impressive dual-meet schedule that witnessed the team fighting to a 6-5 record, the men’s squad will face off against conference foes Alabama, Auburn and Florida as well as non-conference powers Florida State and Texas A&M. The team will enjoy four home meets spanning the season including the season opener against Tulane Sept. 30. “We have an excellent competition schedule which will provide our athletes with plenty of opportunity for success while being challenged by some of the nations elite,” Shaffer said. “Our dual meets are the building blocks, and our invitationals directly prepare us for the SEC and NCAA Championships which is our ultimate focus.”

FREESTYLE

third in the 1000 free at Texas A&M with a season-best 9:34.29 clocking and a season best of 4:40.94 in the 500 free. Dassinger improved from his sophomore season and placed 30th in the 500 free (4:35.00) at the SEC’s and claimed runner-up honors in the 1000 free in a victory over American.

Tuomola and sophomore Michael Saco will battle for intra-squad supremacy in the sprint freestyle events this season. The Haarajoki, Finland native, Tuomola proved to be the team’s fastest sprint freestylist for the second straight season. He delivered seventh in the 50 free (19.83) after qualifying with a program top-10 mark of 19.71 and claimed 11th in the 100 free (43.88) at the SEC Championships. During his freshman campaign he was LSU’s top freshman performer and a member of the SEC All-Freshmen team while posting a 100 free time of 43.65 at the SEC Championships, which was good enough for fourth best in program history. “I know my personal goal for Tuomola is to try to knock down some school records,” Geyer said. “He improved in the 50 free last year and fell short of qualifying for the NCAA Championships. I know that is on his mind this year.” Coming off of injury, Saco was still able to qualify for the SEC Championships despite not improving his top times from high school and the junior national circuit. He registered a career best of 44.93 to take 19th in the 100 free at SEC’s and finished 24th in the 50 free with a career best of 20.35. “The entire second half of the year and even through most of the summer, Coach Asti

and I nursed Saco back to health and made some changes in his stroke,” Geyer said. “We have him thinking a different mentality when it comes to swimming. For his sophomore year we are looking for greater contributions in the sprint freestyles.” South African freshman Frank Greeff will accompany the duo in the sprint freestyle competitions as well as the 200 free. Hamilton and fellow junior Kevin Mihic, Diefenthal and Dassinger will be joined by freshmen Dillon Love as the top competitors for the 200 free. The real strength of the Tigers’ freestyle component stems from the prowess of distance swimmer Hamilton, who holds LSU’s program records in the 500 free (4:22.17), 1000 free (9:06.59) and 1650 free (15:02.32). Senior Rick Duran, Dassinger, sophomore Shane Coltharp and freshmen Mattew Schaefer and Samuel Jardine will complement Hamilton in the various distance free swims. Hamilton emerged as one of the top underclassmen milers in the country while earning his first career All-America honors with an honorable mention 15th place finish in the 1650 free at the NCAA Championships. He raced to ninth in the mile race at SEC’s (15:14.96) and claimed 12th in the 500 free. In his first season after transferring from Florida Atlantic, Duran added quality depth to the distance freestyle ranks after delivering

BACKSTROKE

The backstroking duo of Diefenthal and Kunkel will lead the unit that also includes junior Chris Mericas, junior Brock Davis, Dassinger, Coltharp, Saco and freshman Michael Young. Diefenthal was LSU’s top 200 backstroker for the third straight year and also made tremendous strides in the 100 back. He posted personal bests and top-five program times in both backstroke races when he swam to a pair of top-16 finishes in the backstroke races at SEC’s. “Diefenthal has continually progressed every year that he has been here,” Geyer said. “He really came in as developmental swimmer, and has gotten faster every year. He has tasted some of the higher levels of competition in our conference. Kunkel delivered 13th in the 200 back at SEC’s with a personal-best 1:46.74 clocking, sixth in program annals. He also swam to a personal best and another program top-10

time of 49.22 in the 100 back to take 20th. The Sydney, Australia native, Young boasts top times of 55.55 and 1:59.62 in the shortcourse 100m and 200m back, respectively. “Young came highly recommended from some local club coaches in the US that worked with him,” Geyer said. “He has developed continuously since we began recruitment his senior year in the backstroke events. From what we’ve seen on the water and the dry land, he has a great work ethic.”

BREASTSTROKE

As well as being the top spring freestylist in the program, Tuomola will battle Roddy for program dominance in the 100 breast. Senior Steffen Voelkel, junior Zack Wepasnick, junior Ben Decker, who sat our his sophomore season due to personal reasons and is back after emerging as the Tiger’s best breaststroker his freshman season, and sophomore Walter Loop make up the backstroking corp. Transfer Ricardo Jiminez will add some punch to the group as well. Tuomola raced to sixth in the 100 breast (53.99) at the SEC Championships enroute to posting the fourth best mark in program history. Roddy earned eighth in the 100 breast (54.22) at the SEC Championships after gaining entry with a personal-best 54.16 clocking, fifth all-time at LSU, in a swim-off victory and

claimed 12th in the 200 breast (2:00.08) after qualifying with a personal best of 1:59.31, sixth in school history. “Roddy has bought into our philosophy as a team and as a program,” Geyer said. “He is trying to relay all of that to the team and get everyone on board together. He had a break through year his sophomore year.” Voelkel put together his best season last year with new personal bests in both breaststroke events at the SEC Championships. He swam to 18th in the 100 breast with a time of 55.90 and 19th in the 200 breast with a mark of 2:03.04. Decker was one of only two freshmen to reach the ‘A’ final of the 100 breast at the SEC Championships in 2009 where he placed eighth in that event with a time of 54.44. He qualified for that race with a career-best time of 54.23, fifth-best in school history. He posted an 11th-place finish in the 200 breast at SEC’s with a mark of 1:59.64 The Veracruz, Mexico native, Jiminez owns a best 100 breast time of 54.48 and a top 200 breast time of 2:00.87. “He had a tremendous midseason meet at Arizona as a freshman,” Geyer said. “He is going to add to our breaststroke core. We’re excited to see what he can do with a full season of training and a clear mindset. He seems to love everything and is appreciative of being here, which is always pleasant to have around the pool deck.”

BUTTERFLY

Senior Martin Jungfleish and Dassinger return as the top fly athletes on the men’s side. The Bremerhaven, Germany native, Jungflesih was LSU’s leader in the 200 butterfly for the second straight season. He barely missed qualifying for a second swim in the 200 fly at SEC’s, finishing 17th with a personal best and program top-10 mark of 1:47.11. He also placed 20th in the 100 fly (49.07). Dassinger registered 22nd in the 200 fly at SEC’s with a personal best and program top-10 time of 1:48.73. Mericas and a quartet of newcomers including transfers Andrew Muller and Raymond DePauda along with freshmen Tyler Jusselin and Greeff will bring increased competition in the fly event. Muller, who competed the past two seasons at the University of Hawaii, earned a personal best at the Conference USA Championships (Feb. 24-27) after finishing 17th in the 200 butterfly (1:56.84). DePauda, the 2011 NJCAA national champion in the 200-yard butterfly at Daytona State, clinched the National Championship in the 200-yard butterfly with a time of 1:51.42. INTRO

Greeff brings a ton of verstatily to this year’s squad. He is currently ranked third in his native South Africa in the short-course 200m butterfly and seventh in the long-course 200m fly for the 2010-11 season. He is a talent who brings with him top times of 2:03.28 (LCM) and 2:00.75 (SCM) in the 200m fly. “We’re excited to have him and that work ethic,” Geyer said. “He is already bought into our program as far as that butterfly goes. He has some personal goals that we’ve talked about. We’re looking at the 2016 Olympics for him, but he thinks that if he gets into the right environment and pushed the right way that he could compete in the 2012 Olympics. If that is his mindset coming in this year as a freshman, we’re going to see some results from that in the short course pool as far as conference and NCAAs in the butterfly.”

INDIVIDUAL MEDLEY

The Tigers clear leaders in the individual medley competitions are Roddy and Kunkel. Two of them notched the second and third best times in the program last season in the 200 IM. Coltharp is the only returning athlete who posted a top-three time for the year in the 400 IM. Roddy placed 20th in the 200 IM at SEC’s with a lifetime best and program top-10 mark of 1:49.33. Kunkel, primarily a backstroker, made strides his sophomore year in the 200 IM as well. He touched the wall in third in the 200 IM in a win over American. Coltharp competed at the SEC Championships as an exhibition swimmer and recorded a season best of 3:59.54 in the 400 IM. He captured third place honors in the 400 IM at the Cougar Classic. Decker, Greeff, Jiminez and freshman Tyler Jusselin will also contribute in the IM. events.

RELAYS

One of the important components of last year’s team was the strength of the relay teams. After the departure of the majority of the members of the relay team, the Tigers will work all season to mix and match to find the right group of athletes. The only certainty surrounding the relays is that Tuomola will be a part of at least four relay teams. The question lies in what position of the relay will Tuomola swim in. “He is going to be a key player on four of our relays,” Geyer said. “He’ll contribute in both medleys, probably anchoring them depending on what Sean Roddy does with breaststroke, and in freestyle relays as a potential leadoff depending on his flat start 50 and 100 freestyle.

Hamilton participated in the second leg of the 800 free relay team at the SEC Championships.

Arguably one of the most talented group of divers in program history will look to take the next step and send multiple athletes to the SEC Championships and the NCAA Championships. Vieke, recognized as the top men’s scholarathlete in all of LSU Athletics and named the Tiger Athletic Foundation Male ScholarAthlete of the Year, also registered career-high scores in all three events and proved to be LSU’s top performer at the NCAA Zone ‘D’ Diving Regional. He Earned the first alternate position to the NCAA Championships with a sixth-place finish in the one-meter (661.40) at Zone’s, recorded 10th in the three-meter with a combined score of 657.20 and tallied 315.30 points in the one-meter to claim 11th at SEC’s while placing 22nd and 24th in the three-meter and platform, respectively. He delivered the third-highest score in school history in the three-meter, 388.20, to capture runner-up honors at Texas A&M. “I really believe Vieke through out his career has been on the cusp of breaking through,” Shaffer said. “I think he is set up, with what he has done this summer and last year. The fact that he is healthy for a lot of these things he is has been yearning for to fall into place. Matt should final at SEC Championships. I am confident that this is the year that Matt will qualify and score at NCAA Championships.” Helm proved to be the Tigers’ top freshman performer and one of the top newcomers in the conference. He was a member of the SEC All-Freshmen Team and twice named SEC Diver of the Week. He recorded fifth in the three-meter competition at SEC’s with a career high of 380.70, which was fourth in school history, delivered 11th in the platform (291.00) and placed 17th in the one-meter (279.25). The Beaverton, Oregon native posted an eighth-place finish in the platform at the NCAA Zone ‘D’ Regional with a combined score of 571.00, tallied a two-round total of 618.50 to claim 10th in the one-meter and finished 12th in the three-meter (652.35). “Through out the dual-meet season, he was a diver you could count on to come through,” Shaffer said. “I look for him to continue to develop. We all need to hone our REVIEW

HISTORY

skills a little bit more on platform, and that comes with maturity. I feel that Helm along with Vieke are real contenders for the NCAA Championships.” McKinney will look to improve on his strong freshman season. He scored in two of three events at the SEC Championships and qualified for the NCAA Zone Diving Regional. He dove to 10th in the three-meter at SEC’s with a 332.90 score and notched 16th in the one-meter (282.25). He delivered a careerbest performance (329.15) in the one-meter at Texas A&M to take third. “I’m looking for McKinney to capitalize on his development,” Shaffer said. “He narrowly missed qualifying for the finals at SEC Championships his first year. He did a real nice job with that and matured. He developed physically a little more. I look for him to increase his performances at the conference level.” Lyman redshirted this past season after sustaining a leg injury. He made significant strides his freshman season while notching points for the Tigers in all three events at SEC’s. He took 15th in the platform and earned 16th in both springboard events. “Lyman recovering from knee surgery last year has made some really good progress,” Shaffer said. “I’m hoping that progress continues to move forward and we can put the injury behind us. He needs to have some consistency in his training. He is fiercely talented and athletic. Jesse will really have the opportunity to contribute to our program in the pool.” Leong also redshirted this past season and will compete for LSU for the first time this upcoming season.

• Both the LSU men’s and women’s squads finished the dual-meet season nationally-ranked in the College Swimming Coaches Association of America polls. The Tigers earned a spot in the men’s final poll for the fourth consecutive year as the team was tabbed No. 20, while the Lady Tigers were ranked No. 18 in the final women’s rankings. • The men and women collected 15 All-America honors at the NCAA Championships with senior Hannes Heyl and sophomore Craig Hamilton each taking one apiece. Lady Tigers’ Jane Trepp snagged five accolades to go a long with Amanda Kendall’s four, Samantha Goates’ two, Jana Ruimerman’s one and Kanon Betzen’s one. • The LSU men’s team broke four school records as freshman Craig Hamilton set new marks in the 500, 1000 and 1650 freestyle. Senior Hannes Heyl shattered the 100 butterfly mark in his final campaign. In addition, the women’s side set 12 swimming and one diving record behind Jane Trepp’s trio of performances in the 50 free, 100 breast and the 100 fly, Amanda Kendall’s times in the 100 and 200 free, Torrey Bussey’s high caliber 200 breast and 200 IM, Cari Blalock’s blistering 400 IM, Sara Haley’s impressive 200 fly, Rebecca St. Germain’s 1-meter dive score and team records in the 200 and 800 free relay as well as the 400 medley relay. • The LSU swimming and diving teams each earned fifth-place in the overall team standings at the conclusion of the 2011 Southeastern Conference Swimming and Diving Championships Saturday in Gainesville, Fla. The LSU women accumulated 393 points and posted their first top-five finish since 2002. The Lady Tigers made a 131-point improvement from a year ago, and they finished 141 points higher than sixth-place South Carolina.

She delivered the finest season for an LSU women’s swimmer in more than a decade and one of the best in school history. She emerged as the first LSU women’s swimmer to win an SEC title since 1997 and also became the only swimmer in program history to earn first-team AllAmerica honors in all three individual races in a single season. She broke a conference record, received All-SEC First-Team honors and captured four medals at the 2011 SEC Championships. • Amanda Kendall excelled on the international stage and was selected for the US Team at the Pan American Games following a stand out season.

On the men’s side, junior Sean Roddy was named Honorable Mention Scholar All-American. • Ten LSU swimmers attended the ConocoPhillips US Nationals in Palo Alto, California and eight posted lifetime best in long course meter competition.

The Southeastern Conference

SOUTHEASTERN

CONFERENCE

Setting the Standard for Intercollegiate Athletics in Swimming and Diving Over the past few decades, the Southeastern Conference has been a constant force in swimming and diving. In 2011, the SEC had a top-five NCAA finish at both men’s and women’s championships. The Georgia women finished as the runners-up at NCAAs while the Florida men finished fifth. Florida and Auburn took seventh and eighth, respectively, to round out the top 10 finishers on the women’s side. Auburn (sixth) and Georgia (10th) had top-10 finishes in the men’s standings to further the league’s claim as the best conference in swimming and diving. 2011 marked the 42nd consecutive season in which the SEC has placed at least one men’s team in the top 10. Since 1969, 110 SEC teams have finished in the NCAA’s top 10. In addition, three individual titles were captured by a SEC team. The SEC now has an all-time total of 157 NCAA individual titles. On the women’s side, seven titles were captured individually to take the SEC’s total to 215 NCAA individual titles. Since 1982, the Southeastern Conference has placed 82 women’s teams in the NCAA top 10.
