Small town. Big school. UC Davis is ranked 16th among public universities nationwide by the National Research Council, is listed 11th among public universities nationwide by U.S. News & World Report; and is 10th in research funding among all U.S. ranked public universities by the National Science Foundation. The campus is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities, one of just 62 institutions of higher learning to be admitted to this distinguished group. Founded in 1908 as the University Farm amid the fertile fields of the state’s Central Valley, UC Davis embarks on a centennial celebration during the 2008-09 academic year. The campus encompasses the colleges of Letters and Science, Engineering, Biological Sciences, and Agricultural and Environmental Sciences; and professional schools in Law, Management, Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, and Education. It also operates the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, one of the leading teaching and research hospitals in the nation. In 2007, the campus announced a $100 million in founding support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to launch the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing. This is a period of growth and change for UC Davis. The campus has seen growth in student, faculty and staff populations and is in the midst of more than $1 billion in new construction. New facilities do or will include new laboratories, new classrooms and new student sports and recreation facilities. Thanks to the generosity of one of the world’s most renowned winemakers,

groundbreaking took place in 2005 on the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science.  The Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts opened in 2002 and is a showcase part of the campus. UC Davis has enjoyed a distinguished history in athletics as it continues a new era in NCAA Division I. The Aggies are official members in most sports in the Big West Conference which includes fellow UC campuses Irvine, Riverside and Santa Barbara. The transition to Division I brought to an end a successful Division II era in which UC Davis captured six Directors’ Cups in eight years, awarded annually to the most successful athletics program in the country. UC Davis also twice received recognition from Sports Illustrated for Women as the top Div. II school for women while Sports Illustrated has also previously honored the institution. In addition to 26 varsity sports (14 for women and 12 for men), the campus offers nearly 40 student-organized club sports. Women's field hockey will become the 27th varsity sport when it begins competition in 2009. And each year, more than 19,000 students participate in intramural sports. All students can enjoy abundant on- and off-campus recreational facilities for tennis, softball, basketball, volleyball and golf. Given the area’s Mediterranean climate, outdoor recreation continues year round. The program is also among the nation’s leaders in NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship recipients and has had three winners of the prestigious NCAA Woman of the Year Award, tied for the most among all schools in the country.

BARBARA JAHN

PETER MOTEKAITIS

Head Coach 36th Year UC Santa Barbara ’73

Assistant Coach 16th Year overall 1st Year with women UC Davis ’83

Jahn is now in her fourth decade at the helm of the UC Davis women’s swimming program, having guided the team from AIAW Division III through the ranks of NCAA Division II to Division I status. Now in her 36th year, she is essentially the veteran coach of the entire athletics department, having served at her team’s helm longer than any other active Aggie head coach. In only the third official year of Division I competition, Jahn led the 2009-10 UC Davis women’s swimming program to its first ever Big West Conference championship and was subsequently named Women’s Coach of the Year. Under Jahn’s guidance, the Aggie women won six titles at the conference championship en route to a program-best 864 points.  The 2008-09 season saw the Aggie women earn a second-place finish at the Big West Championships, led by Heidi Kucera who was named Big West Women’s Athlete of the Year - a program first. Kucera became the first UC Davis swimmer to automatically qualify for the NCAA Championships, where she competed in three individual events. During her tenure at UC Davis, Jahn has coached a multitude of All-Americans, including two student-athletes – Anna Pettis and Kristi Wheeler – selected as part of the NCAA Division II swimming team of the decade for the 1980s. Numerous times, Jahn was named Coach of the Year in the Northern California Athletic Conference. Her teams have also competed at the highest levels of the Pacific Collegiate Swimming Conference and the NCAA Division II Championships. In 2003, her team captured its first-ever PCSC title, supplanting defending champion UC San Diego by more than 30 points.  Jahn’s student-athletes have been widely recognized on the university level as well. Kobayashi won the campus’s Hubert Heitman Award for a second time in 2005, becoming the fourth Barbara Jahn protegé to capture the honor as outstanding female athlete of the year. Additionally, three of her swimmers have won the W.P. Lindley Award as the university’s top scholar-athlete of the year. On the vaunted rosters of the Cal Aggie Athletics Hall of Fame, no fewer than four of her student-athletes are listed: Anna Pettis Scott (1991), Kristi Wheeler-Hussain (1993), Jamie McClellan (1999) and Mary E. Fiedler-Althof (2001). Jahn is a respected member of the faculty at UC Davis, teaching a number of aquatics courses in the exercise biology program. A 1973 graduate of UC Santa Barbara, Jahn was also a diver for the Gauchos. She received her degree from UCSB in cultural anthropology with minors in ergonomics and coaching. Jahn earned her master’s degree in kinesiology from UCLA in 1975. She and her husband, Tom, reside in El Macero.



Motekaitis enters his 16th overall season at UC Davis and his first as assistant coach with the women’s swimming program. As head coach of the UC Davis men’s swimming program for his first 15 years, Motekaitis guided the Aggies into conference and national prominence at his alma mater, culminating with a Big West Conference Championship during the 2010 season. Under his leadership, the Aggies won the conference title with a record 985.5 points, the most ever in a five-team field and set two schools records and hit 12 NCAA “B” Consideration times. He was named Men’s Coach of the Year for the second straight season. Under his tutelage, Scott Weltz, who finished his Aggie career as one of the most decorated swimmers in UC Davis history, became the first UC Davis student-athlete in its Division I history to earn All-American honors after finishing 15th in the 200 individual medley at the 2009 NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships. The 2006 Big West Conference Freshman of the Year was named Male Athlete of the Year in back-to-back seasons in 2009 and 2010. Prior to beginning Big West Conference competition, Motekaitis guided the Aggies to the team title in their final year as a member of the Pacific Collegiate Swimming Conference in 2004. UC Davis claimed six individual titles and three relay championships at the meet. In Motekaitis’ career, his student-athletes have captured the university’s Colby E. “Babe” Slater Award, given to the outstanding male athlete of the year, three times and twice won the W.P. Lindley Award as the top scholar-athlete. In 2005, one of his prized pupils, 1998 national champion Tadeshi Kaneko, was inducted into the Cal Aggie Athletics Hall of Fame. Two years later, Motekaitis protegés Pat Foster and Tea Austin earned their respective nods into the Hall of Fame. Motekaitis also served as head coach for the Davis Senior High School swimming program until 2007-08. Under his guidance, Blue Devil teams have earned 23 straight league titles and an astounding 19 Sac-Joaquin Section championships. In addition to his guidance of UC Davis student-athletes, Motekaitis also coached former UC Berkeley standout Haley Cope during 2003-04. In the year following her training under the Aggies’ mentor, Cope won three medals (including two gold) at the FINA World Championships, one national championship, multiple World Cup gold medals and a silver medal at the Olympic Games in Athens. A 1983 graduate of UC Davis with a bachelor’s degree in history, Motekaitis was also an All-American swimmer for the Aggies throughout his college career. He set individual school records in three events as well as two relay marks. As an educator, he earned a master’s degree in sports management & fitness from the University of San Francisco in 1997. Motekaitis’ wife, former NCAA champion Koren Pollock, coached swimming and water polo at nearby Sacramento City College. He has four children: Ty, Samantha, Mia and Elle.

RICK HENDERSON

PHIL TONNE

Administrative Assistant 13th Year Sacramento State ’80

Head Diving Coach 7th Year San Diego State ’79

Henderson enters his 13th year with the Aggie swimming program, serving as administrative assistant for the women’s team. Like Motekaitis, Henderson is no stranger to the local swimming scene – he is now in his fourth decade of coaching in Northern California. Henderson first joined the Aggies in 1983 as the interim head coach for the UC Davis women’s program. During that lone season at the helm, Henderson guided the Aggies to a fourth-place NCAA finish, was selected Coach of the Year in the conference, and boasted an unprecedented four individual national champions. Among his protegés are Cal Aggie Athletic Hall of Fame enshrinees Anna Pettis Scott and Jamie McClellan. Henderson recently retired from his position as senior coach for the Woodland Swim Team. In his 13 years in Woodland, he garnered three Sierra Nevada Swimming Coach of the Year honors and guided numerous members of the national junior team. Henderson graduated from Sacramento State in 1980 with a degree in social science.

Aggie Coaching History UC Davis women’s swimming and diving dates back to 1949, operating under the auspices of the Women’s Athletic Association and its advisor, Dr. Marya Welch. In the 1950s, the Picnic Day aquacade was among the campus’s most popular sports activities. After the passage of Title IX, swimming was among the first varsity sport offerings for women. Debbie Meyer, who won three gold medals at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, was brought in as head coach before Barbara Jahn took the reins in 1975. Note: the date listed designates the championship half of the year (i.e. 1996 represents the 1995-96 school year). Coach Debbie Meyer Scott Gaw Barbara Jahn Rick Henderson

Years 1974 1974 1975-82, 1984-Present 1983 (W)

After a successful 20-year run as the head diving coach at UC Berkeley, Phil Tonne brought his expertise up Interstate 80 to the Aggie program. He enters his seventh year at UC Davis in 2010-11. Tonne’s ever-growing stable of divers has made substantial contributions to the Aggies’ team success at the Big West Conference, culminating with Jennifer Meyer’s 1-meter title and Jason Andrade’s 3-meter championship at the 2010 edition of the conference meet - both program firsts. Under Tonne’s guidance, UC Davis diving has steadily improved as the program has moved through the ranks of Division I. The women’s squad scored 139 points at the 2007 league meet, led by Kristyn Chaldekas’ second-place finishes on both boards, while Jamie Flynn was the 3-meter runner up in 2008. Tonne’s student-athletes have also left their marks on the UC Davis records as every Aggie diving record has been set by Tonne’s students on both the men’s and women’s side. In 20 years with the Golden Bears, Tonne’s finest hour came in 1991, when he guided Melissa Graviss to a seventh-place finish on the 3-meter board. She was Cal’s first-ever women’s diver to qualify for the NCAA Championship. Graviss qualified for the national meet on both springboards in 1992 as well. In 2004, Tonne protegé Louie Gagnet reached the national meet on the tower and both springboards. In his career, Tonne has coached two Pac-10 men’s finalist and one conference champion on the women’s side. Additionally, every Golden Bear diving record was set during his tenure. In addition to his collegiate guidance, Tonne also served as head coach for the Diablo Divers in Walnut Creek, Calif. During that time, he oversaw the careers of 23 North Coast Section champions, one agegroup national champion, 11 Junior Olympic participants and six senior national competitors. Also under Tonne’s guidance: his Aggie predecessor Karla Helder, who has captured numerous national and world master’s national titles in recent years. Tonne was a two-time JC All-American diver at Chabot College before continuing his career at San Diego State. He was twice named MVP for the Aztecs. Tonne graduated from SDSU in 1979 with a degree in physical education.

Schaal Aquatics Center

JENAH DAWSON IM/Fly • Jr. Novato, Calif. San Marin HS ’08

On April 21, 1998, former Aggie swimmer Rand Schaal and his father, Ted, made a $1.4 million donation to the university, $1 million of which was earmarked toward the construction of a new aquatics facility. That contribution, the largest in the history of the intercollegiate athletics department, helped spur the 1999 Facilities And Campus Enhancement (F.A.C.E.) Initiative, which funded the remainder of the aquatics center as well as other campus venues. The complex features an all-deep 65-meter by 25-yard pool with a depth ranging from seven feet to 14 feet (for diving purposes), men’s and women’s locker rooms, four team rooms, training facilities, office space and a fixed-seating capacity for approximately 500.

UC Davis comprises three colleges (Agricultural & Environmental Sciences, Engineering, Letters & Science), five professional schools (Education, Law, Management, Medicine, Veterinary Medicine) plus the Division of Biological Sciences. With 103 undergraduate majors and 80 graduate programs, the university offers the most expansive and diverse range of academics among any of the University of California campuses. Additionally, students also have the opportunity to combine majors or customize their field of study by creating an individual major. For those interested in graduate degrees – whether it be a master’s degree or a doctorate – UC Davis offers advising services to help students craft their education toward those goals. An estimated 86 percent of UC Davis students applying to graduate schools earn acceptance to either their first or second choices.

COMMUNITY

With a population of approximately 60 thousand, Davis is widely known for being a safe, active and socially innovative community. The downtown area boasts a multitude of specialty shops, restaurants, theaters and art galleries; while the city’s numerous parks offer recreational opportunities for active students.

On campus, UC Davis students can rally around the highly successful athletics department by joining the Aggie Pack spirit organization, or enjoy a first-class performance at the Robert & Magrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts.

The university also offers hundreds of student clubs and organizations, including cultural clubs, fraternities and sororities, faith-based organizations and the Associated Students of UC Davis student government. For the active Aggie, students may participate in the diverse intramural sports program or join one of the 30-plus sports clubs. In 2004, the Activities & Recreation Center (ARC) opened its doors, providing the campus with its own state-of-the-art fitness venue. In April, UC Davis hosts Picnic Day, an annual student-run open house. The popular event showcases all that the campus has to offer, attracting students, staff, faculty, parents, alumni and members of the surrounding communities.

GETTING AROUND

Nestled just southwest of Sacramento, the city of Davis rests just 15 minutes from an international airport, and contains a downtown station serviced by Greyhound and Amtrak. Centrally located in the Sacramento Valley, the town sits equally close to both the finest ski resorts and the Pacific Ocean’s top beaches. Within Davis and its neighboring towns, both Yolobus and the student-operated Unitrans bus systems offer free transportation to registered undergraduates. The town boasts more bicycles per capita than any other city in the nation. More than 50 miles of bike paths make the entire town conducive to both riders and pedestrians.

UC DAVIS ATHLETICS GREG WARZECKA

Director of Athletics

On August 1, 1995, Greg Warzecka became the 11th director of athletics at UC Davis. In the decade-plus since, the Aggie athletics program has enjoyed unprecedented success under his guidance. Warzecka’s penchant for progress began from his first year as director when he was charged with the task of fully engaging the campus in dicussions regarding whether or not UC Davis would offer athletics-related financial aid. One year later, the campus announced the launch of its first-ever grant-in-aid program. Warzecka has also overseen UC Davis’ transition into two conferences in his short tenure. In 1998, the Aggies moved from the now-defunct Northern California Athletic Conference to the powerful California Collegiate Athletic Association. Then in 2003, the UC Davis program announced that it would join the Big West Conference and thus reclassify from NCAA Division II to Division I status. Under Warzecka’s guidance, the Aggie athletics program increased its grant-inaid allocation nearly tenfold to approximately $5 million. During this period, he also engineered a substantial upgrade in athletics facilities, most notably the Schaal Aquatics Center (2004), the Marya Welch Tennis Center (2005) and the multi-use Aggie Stadium (2007).

In 1999 and 2000, Sports Illustrated For Women named UC Davis as the top Division II school for women athletics. One year later, SI selected UC Davis as its top D-II school for the 2001-02 year. Before turning to administration, Warzecka had been a successful baseball coach, first as an assistant at his alma mater, California. He then served as head coach at San Francisco State, then at the University of Chicago, where he also served his first post as men’s athletics director. Warzecka returned to California in 1989 to become the A.D. at the University of Redlands, where he remained until he joined the Aggie athletics staff.

Small town. Big school. UC Davis is ranked 16th among public universities nationwide by the National Research Council, is listed 11th among public universities nationwide by U.S. News & World Report; and is 10th in research funding among all U.S. ranked public universities by the National Science Foundation. The campus is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities, one of just 62 institutions of higher learning to be admitted to this distinguished group. Founded in 1908 as the University Farm amid the fertile fields of the state’s Central Valley, UC Davis embarks on a centennial celebration during the 2008-09 academic year. The campus encompasses the colleges of Letters and Science, Engineering, Biological Sciences, and Agricultural and Environmental Sciences; and professional schools in Law, Management, Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, and Education. It also operates the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, one of the leading teaching and research hospitals in the nation. In 2007, the campus announced a $100 million in founding support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to launch the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing. This is a period of growth and change for UC Davis. The campus has seen growth in student, faculty and staff populations and is in the midst of more than $1 billion in new construction. New facilities do or will include new laboratories, new classrooms and new student sports and recreation facilities. Thanks to the generosity of one of the world’s most renowned winemakers,

groundbreaking took place in 2005 on the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science.  The Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts opened in 2002 and is a showcase part of the campus. UC Davis has enjoyed a distinguished history in athletics as it continues a new era in NCAA Division I. The Aggies are official members in most sports in the Big West Conference which includes fellow UC campuses Irvine, Riverside and Santa Barbara. The transition to Division I brought to an end a successful Division II era in which UC Davis captured six Directors’ Cups in eight years, awarded annually to the most successful athletics program in the country. UC Davis also twice received recognition from Sports Illustrated for Women as the top Div. II school for women while Sports Illustrated has also previously honored the institution. In addition to 26 varsity sports (14 for women and 12 for men), the campus offers nearly 40 student-organized club sports. Women's field hockey will become the 27th varsity sport when it begins competition in 2009. And each year, more than 19,000 students participate in intramural sports. All students can enjoy abundant on- and off-campus recreational facilities for tennis, softball, basketball, volleyball and golf. Given the area’s Mediterranean climate, outdoor recreation continues year round. The program is also among the nation’s leaders in NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship recipients and has had three winners of the prestigious NCAA Woman of the Year Award, tied for the most among all schools in the country.
