Andy Johns returns for his 16th season as the Northern Arizona head swimming and diving coach. Throughout his NAU career, Johns has continued to take on new challenges and strives to take his program to the next level. Johns led his Lumberjack squad to a third place finish at the WAC Championships in 2010-11, with the Lumberjacks collecting 21 All-WAC awards during the four-day championship meet. NAU broke six school records and produced 41 top 16 individual finishes and five point-scoring relays. Sophomore Fi Connell repeated as the 200 backstroke champion, won silver in the 100 backstroke, and bronze in the 200 individual medley. Connell built off her sensational freshman season in which she won gold medals in both the 100 and 200 backstroke. She became the first multiple winner for NAU at a championship meet since Emily Simon in 2004 and hit NCAA qualifying times in both events. Connell was named to the 2010 and 2011 Division I Mid-Major All-America team by www.collegeswimming.com. She was joined on the 2011 squad by Emma Lowther after the freshman took home a silver medal at the WAC meet. Johns led NAU to a pair of second place finishes at the WAC Championships prior to a fifth place finish in 2010. The Lumberjacks earned the runner-up title among nine teams in 2008-09 and finished second among eight teams during the 2007-08 season. At the 2009 WAC Championships, the Lumberjacks earned 43 All-WAC Awards and set 11 school records, marking the most records set at the WAC meet in the five years NAU has been a member as well as the most records ever set at a conference meet in Johns’ 14 years. The 43 All-WAC Awards are also the most to date, and were four more than NAU had earned the previous year. Johns coached an individual gold medalist as then-junior Rachael Foe earned the honor in the 200 individual medley. Two of NAU’s relay teams also earned silver medals along with school records. Along with its second-place team finish in 2007-08, NAU earned 39 All-WAC Awards, set six school records and earned two special awards. Diving Coach Nikki Huffman received coWAC Diving Coach of the Year and senior Natalie Hughes was named the WAC Diver of the Year. Six years ago Johns helped NAU finish third among the eight teams in the WAC and set seven school records at the conference meet. Alexis Buckley earned an individual WAC title for the second year in the row, winning the 400 individual medley in a school-record time. In 2005-06, the Lumberjacks placed third at the WAC meet for the first time, and also set three school records. Johns coached Buckley, a distance freestyle swimmer, to a qualifying time for the NCAA Championships. Buckley swam in both the 1,650 and 500 freestyle at the NCAA Championships in Athens, Ga., and was the first female swimmer at NAU to represent the Lumberjacks in 12 years. The 2004-05 season marked NAU’s first as an affiliate member of the WAC. Johns not only led the team to a fifthplace finish at the conference championships among a field that included nationally-ranked SMU and Hawai’i, but was named the WAC Coach of the Year in NAU’s rookie season. The team placed 12 swimmers and divers on the WAC All-Academic Team, and set a total of nine school records at the championships. In 2003-04, the year before joining the WAC, NAU finished second at the National Independent Conference (NIC) Championships and Johns was named the NIC Women’s Swimming Coach of the Year.

NAU swimming and diving on the map on several levels, including the regional stage as well as producing perennial conference-title contenders when he moved the program from the Pacific Collegiate Swimming Conference into the all-Division I NIC in 1998-99. In 11 years against exclusively Division I competition at the conference level, Johns has led NAU to six second-place finishes (including three straight from 2001-04) and three third-place efforts. Success for NAU not only shows in the team standings, but also in the record book. In Johns' 14 years, NAU has earned 42 individual and relay conference titles, 87 school records (a high of 11 set at the 2009 WAC meet), nine conference records and 16 NCAA qualifying marks. In 2001, NAU earned its first individual NIC champions (Chelsey Urban and Kate Morgan) and finished a strong third in the conference meet. Johns then raised the bar even higher and led NAU to a second-place NIC finish in 2002, just a few points shy of the program's first Division I conference title. Johns has always been a proponent of the "total" program - one that also succeeds in the classroom. Since the fall of 1996, his student-athletes have posted cumulative grade-point averages of 3.00 and higher in 30 of 32 academic semesters. The 2008-09 team earned the 39th-highest GPA among all Division I teams for the fall of 2008, recording a 3.28. The Lumberjacks have consistently had the most studentathletes earn Academic All-WAC honors among the schools in the league, with 16 earning the honor last year. The 2007-08 squad earned a record 28 NAU Golden Eagle Scholar Athlete Awards. NAU has been recognized five times as an Academic All-America Team by the Collegiate Swim Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) including last year's squad which posted a 3.24 grade point average in the fall. In 14 years, Johns' charges have earned 237 Golden Eagle Awards. Johns came to NAU in 1996 from Clemson, where he trained the sprinters, including one NCAA All-American. Prior to that, he spent three years as head coach at Northeast Missouri State (now Truman State). During his tenure, his teams set 45 school records and five athletes posted their first national qualifying times. Johns is well-respected in the swimming research community, having presented at the American College of Sports Medicine national meeting twice, first about the effects of warm-up in 1991 and tapering in 1992. Johns is published in many sports medicine journals, including the International Journal of Sports Medicine and Medicine and Science in Sport in Exercise. He was awarded a research fellowship from the Institute of Nutrition at the University of North Carolina in 1990. As a collegian at East Carolina, Johns helped his team to the Colonial Athletic Association title in 1989. Prior to ECU, he was a junior-college All-American, earning the honor eight times in two years at Broward (Fla.) Community College. Outside of his time as a coach, Johns has performed with the Flagstaff Light Opera Company over the past four years, including the musicals Oliver and The Secret Garden, and is currently a member of The Flagstaff Master Chorale. Johns received his bachelor's degree in physical education from ECU in 1989 and followed that with a master's in exercise physiology in 1991. Johns has one daughter, Ali.

DIVING COACH NIKKI HUFFMAN Nikki Huffman begins her 16th year at the helm of the Northern Arizona diving program, a squad that she has consistently led to the NCAA Zone Diving Championships. A four-time National Independent Conference (NIC) Diving Coach of the Year, Huffman now takes her team into its eighth year of Western Athletic Conference (WAC) competition, a league which boasts some of the top divers in the country. The NAU diving program reached new heights last season, as the Lumberjacks sent six divers to the NCAA Zone Regional Championships, the most in school history. Senior Lana Christensen was the top finisher posting an 11th-place finish on 3-meter. NAU combined to take home five All-WAC selections, while senior Taryn Harris named WAC Diver of the Week twice and Christensen was named to the CoSIDA Academic AllAmerica At Large Team. In 2009-10, the diving team picked up nine All-WAC honors including medals from Harris and freshman Kristy Ardavanis. Ardavanis won bronze on 3-meter springboard and Harris won silver on 1-meter. Huffman qualified four divers for the NCAA Zone Diving Regional Championships. Harris went on to place 12th on the 1-meter at the Zone meet. In 2008-09, Harris earned bronze medals at the WAC Championships on both 1meter and 3-meter. Harris went on to earn eighth place at the NCAA Zone Diving Diving Coach Championships on the 1-meter, joining two other Lumberjacks at that meet. Huffman and her divers had a breakout year in 2007-08, as senior Natalie Hughes 14th Season became NAU’s first-ever gold-medal winner in diving in the WAC (3-meter) and was Oakland University, 1991 named the WAC Diver of the Year. Huffman herself earned her first WAC Diving Coach of the Year Award, sharing the honor with Mike Brown of Hawaii. In the eight years prior to joining the WAC, the Lumberjacks dominated conference competition in the NIC and were, and still are, among the elite in the NCAA Zone Diving Championships in terms of amount of representation in the region, represented by schools from the Pacific-10, Western Athletic, Big West and Mountain West conferences. NAU won 11 individual conference diving titles in eight years in the NIC women's competition under Huffman's guidance, and earned four conference diver-of-the-year awards (including back-to-back honors by Kate Morgan in 2002 and 2003, and the most recent by Blair Buder in 2004). Huffman was named the Women's Diving Coach of the Year four times (1997, 2002, 2003, 2004). All three divers who represented NAU at the NCAA Zone Diving Championships in 2009 return this season. A year prior to Harris’ impressive eighth-place finish at the Zone meet, Hughes (‘08), who represented NAU all four years of her career, finished seventh on both 1-meter and 3-meter. Danielle Borth (‘08) was a three-time representative, and placed 10th on the 1-meter and 12th on the platform as a senior. Both divers finished in the top-8 on all three events at the WAC Championships their junior and senior years, with Hughes earning the bronze medal on the 1-meter as a junior and the gold as a senior, and Borth taking bronze on 1-meter and 3-meter as a senior. Not only has NAU been dominant on the conference level, but it is starting to gain a name for itself on a national level. Over the last eight years, Lumberjacks have taken 28 spots at the NCAA Zone E Diving Championships, which is the fourth-most among all schools represented at the meet over that span (trailing only UCLA, Stanford and Arizona) - ahead of most Pac-10 and all Mountain West, WAC and Big West schools. The senior class of 2003 for Huffman was the most successful, as all three - Kate Morgan, Maryann Wagener and Courtney McKenzie - participated in the zone meet in all four years they were at the Mountain Campus, led by Morgan as the top finisher every year and even being a second alternate to the NCAA Championships in 2003. Over the last 11 years, Huffman has produced at least eight divers that qualified for the zone meet every year. All in all, 18 different divers have represented NAU at the zone diving meet on the women's side since Huffman arrived; that is nearly twice the number that represented the school in the previous 13 years of the program's existence. While success on the boards has been prominent in describing Huffman, her charges have also been superior in the classroom. The divers have helped the Lumberjacks be named an Academic All-America Team by the Collegiate Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) four times - an honor given to a team with a grade-point average of 2.90 and higher. NAU had a GPA among the top-20 in all of Division I in 2003-04, with divers Anna Deem and Courtney McKenzie leading the way. Deem was named an honorable-mention Academic All-America by the CSCAA. McKenzie also earned the CSCAA honor but, in addition, was named the NAU Golden Eagle Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2002-03. She also earned selection to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Women's At Large District VIII First Team, making her a nominee for Academic All-America consideration. Recently graduated senior Danielle Borth was the first diver to be named Academic All-WAC every year of her career. Borth earned another first when The Leadership Consortium (TCL) in Phoenix named her one of their 2008 Community Leadership Award winners. Borth contributed 132 hours of community service as a senior, and was also named the female Lumberjack Service Award winner. Prior to NAU, Huffman spent two years at Clemson, where she was voted the 1996 Atlantic Coast Conference Men's Diving Coach of the Year. With the Tigers, Huffman coached both men's and women's diving teams to winning seasons, with the women's team being ranked in the top-25 of the national coaches' poll in 1996. She had one ACC champion each year and took five divers to the zone meet in 1996. Huffman began her coaching career at her alma mater, Oakland University. She coached six All-Americans and three Division II national champions, being named Division II National Men's Diving Coach of the Year in 1994. At Oakland, she coached Dario D'Fazio, who represented Venezuela in the 1992 and 1996 Summer Olympics. As an athlete, Huffman was a seven-time All-America and two-time national champion during her career at Oakland, where she returned every time the NIC Championships were held at the school. A 1991 graduate of Oakland, the former Nikki Kelsey was married in the summer of 2001. She and her husband have two children, Kayla, age eight, and Darren, age six.

PROGRAM HISTORY The Northern Arizona swimming and diving program began just as the foundation was drying on the Natatorium. The athletics director at the time, Hank Anderson, added a women's swimming and diving program to the athletics department in 1983, and tabbed former Arizona State All-American Pam Rogers as head coach. Since the program was not affiliated with the Big Sky, Rogers went to find a niche for her new program. After wandering in other conferences, Rogers worked with coaches from other independent schools and established the Pacific Collegiate Swim Conference in 1986, a league of Division I, II and III schools.

The word 'dynasty' was quickly applied to Rogers' program, as NAU won the first four PCSC championships on the women's side (1987, 1988, 1989 and 1990). Upon the success with the women, athletics director Tom Jurich put Rogers on the national map when he added men's swimming and diving in 1990 and named Rogers the head coach - making her one of only three women in Division I to lead a combined program. Her winning touch rubbed off on the men, as they won the PCSC title in their first two years (1991, 1992). The men's program would win six titles in seven years. NAU would reach regional and national success by producing NCAA Championships

qualifiers in the 1990s, the program's first such athletes. The first Lumberjack to see NCAA competition was diver Rob Sherman, who finished 22nd in the nation in 1992. April Diez made the biggest national splash, becoming the first NAU woman to compete at the national meet and the first swimming All-American when she finished sixth in the mile freestyle and ninth in the 500 in 1994. The program joined the National Independent Conference in 1998 and returned to women-only status in 1999. After Diez, Andrea Redman was an NCAA qualifier in 1998 and 1999 and was followed by Chelsey Urban in 2001. NAU was a strong member of the NIC, finishing second in 1999, 2002, 2003 and 2004 and a solid

third in 2001. In 2004-05, the program moved on from the NIC and joined the Western Athletic Conference, placing fifth in the first year and earning head coach Andy Johns the title of WAC Coach of the Year. A year later, NAU finished third and Alexis Buckley became the first swimmer in 12 years to represent the Lumberjacks at the NCAA Championships. NAU again finished third in 2007-08, and the 2008-09 season saw NAU earn its highest WAC finish, placing 2nd. After finishing fifth in 2009-10, the Lumberjacks earned a third place finish last season. In 27 years of existence, the NAU women have won six team and 83 individual and relay conference titles.

HALL OF FAMERS & NCAA PARTICIPANTS Valerie Carter (1984-87), a 2006 NAU Athletics Hall of Fame inductee, didn’t know it but, right after the ball dropped to start 2006, the ball started rolling on her induction. Keeping it a complete secret, Joe Carter contacted the NAU Athletic Media Relations office in early January to inquire about nominating his wife for the honor, and from there, Carter’s numerous accomplishments in diving at NAU began to surface. Carter (formerly Simmons) qualified for the NCAA Championships twice, becoming the first athlete in the program to ever qualify, and also became the school record-holder in both the one and three-meter events as well as the Pac-West Conference champion in both events as a junior. Carter was the team co-captain as a senior, all-academic Pacific Collegiate Swim Conference honoree and was twice named the team’s most outstanding diver. Carter didn’t just receive a degree, pack up and leave. She has made Flagstaff her home, and NAU her career. She has four different degrees from the university in physical therapy including an advanced master’s and a doctorate. Carter currently works as an associate professor in the Physical Therapy Department, and also owns and operates Carter Rehabilitation in town along with her husband.

April Diez-Walker (1992-96), a first-ballot inductee into the NAU Athletics Hall of Fame, was the first female swimmer to compete at the NCAA Division I Swimming and Diving Championships and is the only swimming All-American in school history. Diez-Walker was a two-time NCAA Championships qualifier and still holds three individual school records - the 500 freestyle, 1,000 freestyle and 1,650 freestyle. A 1994 NCAA All-American in the 1,650freestyle, she finished sixth overall at the NCAA meet and placed ninth in the 500-yard freestyle, earning honorable-mention AllAmerica honors. She was also a championship finalist at the 1993 World University Games in Buffalo, N.Y. Diez-Walker was also named the top female scholar-athlete in the nation following the 1993-94 academic year based on her athletic and academic accomplishments (a perfect 4.00 grade-point average). The former April Diez was named Female Swimmer of the Year following the 1995 Pacific Collegiate Swim Conference Championships after winning the 1,650 free, 200 free, 500 free and 400 individual medley (setting an NAU record in the process). A native of Phoenix, she earned her degree in sociology at NAU, completed law school at the University of California, Berkeley, before moving back to Phoenix.

A 2007 graduate of NAU, Alexis Buckley was the first female swimmer in 12 years to participate in the NCAA Championships when she qualified as a junior in the 1,650 freestyle with a time of 16:27.12, second only to All-American April Diez’s time of 16:18.13. Buckley was the first NAU swimmer to earn a Western Athletic Conference (WAC) title, garnering two of them since the Lumberjacks joined the WAC in 2004-05. As a junior, Buckley won the 1,650 freestyle at the WAC Championships and as a senior she set a school-record time of 4:23.73 en route to winning her second title in the 400 individual medley. At the 2006 NCAA Championships, Buckley placed 19th in the 1,650 freestyle and 33rd in the prelims of the 500 freestyle.

Pam Rogers, a 2007 NAU Athletics Hall of Fame inductee, was the Head Coach for the swimming and diving program from 1983-96, and also the first coach of the program. Rogers won five Pacific Collegiate Swimming Conference titles during her tenure and was responsible for the addition of the men’s program, which also won five conference titles. Rogers was the first woman in the sport of swimming and diving to be the head coach of a combined men’s and women’s Division I team. The team finished 29th at the 1994 NCAA Championships behind All-American April Diez’s performance in the 500 freestyle and the mile. Rogers coached 39 women’s conference champions in individual events and 47 Golden Eagle Scholar Athletes. She was a four-time All-American, a two-time national champion and an alternate for the U.S. Olympic Team in 1976, and went on to coach ASU to two national and four conference titles.

NAU: WHERE THE WORLD TRAINS The Wall Aquatic Center, home to the NAU swimming and diving program, is a prominent training facility for would class athletes, which have included several national teams from around the world, American gold-medal swimmers like Gary Hall Jr. and Anthony Ervin, as well as World and Olympic champion Australian swimmer Ian Thorpe and four-time Olympic gold medalist and Japanese swimmer Kosuke Katajima. Katajima trained in Flagstaff prior to the 2008 Beijing Olympics and went on to win gold medals in both the 100-meter and 200-meter breaststroke. As Katajima said to Swimming Technique magazine, “Whenever I come here (to Flagstaff), I always improve my time.” Flagstaff works for an Olympic gold medalist; just imagine what it can do for you. Living and training in an environment such as Flagstaff, at an elevation of 7,000 feet above sea level, provides many benefits to athletes and coaches in pursuit of peak performances. Unlike the international teams which only come to Flagstaff for relatively short altitude training camps, the athletes at Northern Arizona University enjoy the benefits of long-term exposure to altitude. Although not researched in depth, anecdotal evidence suggests that the benefits of living and training at a significant elevation result in long-term improvement of athletic performance. Crucial to Sophie Pascoe, the world paralympic record holder in the 200 butterfly the success of our athletes is an application of years of knowledge and continual (center), trained in Flagstaff in 2011 with her coach Roly Critchon, NAU learning from the best coaches in the world, who visit NAU regularly for altitude trainswimmers Meagan Morrison and Krista Maier, and NAU assistant coach ing cycles. The development of a “need to rest or ready to work” baseline test set has Jeana Fuccillo (L-R) helped fine-tune the science of swimming at NAU. Being smart about the timing, duration and intensity of work has resulted in NAU swimmers going to the NCAA Championships in events ranging from the 50 freestyle to the mile. Smart, scientific, efficient training with a common goal of improved performance over the long haul is challenging, but the Lumberjacks of Northern Arizona University are primed to meet the challenge. In 2011, 12 individual athletes and one relay team representing five countries used the facility before competing in the 2011 FINA World Aquatics Championships in Shanghai, China from July 16-31. The Flagstaff-trained athletes combined for five gold medals, three silvers and one bronze among the twenty events in which they competed. If the athletes that trained in Wall represented a single country, they would have finished fourth in gold medals and tied for seventh in total medals. The crop of athletes included representatives from Denmark, Germany, Italy, Japan and Norway. Medal Winners: Men's 50 Free - Silver - Luca Dotto (Italy) 21.90

Men's 100 Breaststroke - Gold - Alexander Dale Oen (Norway) 58.71
