COACHING STAFF 2009 UC SAN DI EGO MEN’S WATER POLO

Denny

Head Coach 29th Season

Harper

In his 29 years as UCSD water polo coach, Denny Harper has established one of the top programs in the country. In 2008, Harper’s Tritons won 20 games for the fourth time in the last five years. On September 20, 2008 at the NorCal Tournament in Stockton, the Tritons defeated Cal Baptist 14-8, giving head coach Denny Harper his career win No. 500. In 2006, the Tritons set a program record in wins, completing a 26-6season with their 14th WWPA title and a third-place finish at the NCAA National Championship tournament. Harper was named the ACWP DII Coach of the Year, the third time he has earned the honor since 2000. Additionally in 2006, Ty Lackey finished up his Triton career being named to the ACWP All-American Division I team and a national finalist for the Peter J. Cutino National Player of the Year Award. In 2005, UCSD won what was a school record 24 times. With multiple victories against Division I schools in Long Beach State, UC Davis, Loyola Marymount, UC Irvine, Saint Francis and a total of 19 victories against ranked opponents, UCSD climbed as high as No. 5 in the national polls and finished the season with a No. 10 national ranking. In 2004 the Tritons had several young players gain valuable experience with only one graduating senior. While the Tritons fell short in their quest for their 14th Western Water Polo Association title, they had several wins over division I powers including Long Beach State, UC Davis, Loyola Marymount and UC Santa Barbara. Harper was named the 2004 CWPA division II Coach of the Year after leading the Tritons to their third 20 win season in the past five years. It was the second Coach of the Year (2000, 2004) honor at the division II level for Harper. One of serveral highlights occured in 2000, when the Tritons defeated USC, 9-8, in a national semifinal in Malibu to become the first non-Division I team to play in the NCAA Men’s Water Polo Championship Game. The Tritons have advanced to the NCAA Tournament in nine of the past 13 seasons, finishing second for the first time ever in 2000, third in 1995 and 1998, fourth in 1999 and 2002 and sixth three times. The 2002 squad went 19-13 and earned its ninth NCAA berth by winning its 13th WWPA title at home inside Canyonview Pool. In 1995, Harper’s Tritons became the first Division III team to advance to the NCAA Water Polo Final Four, repeating the feat in 1998 and at Canyonview in 1999. Under Harper’s direction, UCSD has dominated the Western Water Polo Association since the league began sponsoring championships in 1981. In 24 seasons, the Tritons have captured 13 titles and eight runner-up trophies. Harper has been honored as WWPA Coach of the Year 14 times, including in 2002. UCSD has been consistently ranked among the top 12 teams in the NCAA rankings, including reaching as high as No. 3 in the nation in 2006, after an upset win over UCLA. At the 2008 FINA Masters World Championships in Perth Australia, Harper guided the San Francisco Olympic Club’s 45+ team to the silver medal, loosing the championship game to the same Russian squad that won the 1980 Olympics. The 40+ squad won the Bronze medal, and the 30+ team won the Gold medal. Harper concluded an outstanding tenure as coach of the UCSD women’s water polo team in 1999, winning five USA Water Polo crowns, one national runner-up effort and two national third-place trophies. He has also coached the highly-successful Sunset San Diego club teams, leading the men’s team to three Indoor National Championships and the Sunset women’s team to eight national titles. The coach also led the UCSD men into the Guiness Book of Records when his squad played 26 continuous hours of water polo on April 7-8, 1989. Harper, a 1978 graduate of San Diego State University, began coaching at Rancho Alamitos and Indio High Schools, and at San Diego State before coming to UC San Diego.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH UC SAN DIEGO INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS The University of California, San Diego Department of Athletics is committed to actively participating in the community through a variety of outreach events and services. Student-athletes from 23 sports participate in a wide range of service and outreach programs in and around the San Diego area. In 2003-04 the Tritons began the “Team Up!” program. This program assists local elementary schools that do not have a physical education component in their current curriculum. UCSD studentathletes provide healthy physical activity and create an environment for elementary school students that foster positive thinking and team building. The program was run at the Del Mar Heights Elementary School in the morning hours prior to school starting and during the students’ lunch periods during the past two years. Triton student-athletes make the holidays brighter for 12 families in the San Diego area on an annual basis, providing a plethora of gifts and holiday cheer. Triton teams paired up and each tandem purchased presents, food, and goodies to deliver to their adopted family before the holidays. Families were selected by the Neighborhood House Association which runs the Head Start programs throughout San Diego County. Student-athletes contacted the families to find out what special presents the children wanted, as well as what sort of clothing or other needs could be met. Teams delivered the presents in person and spent time with the families, often playing games with the children. Families each received approximately $300$500 worth of gifts, depending on the number of children. Presents ranged from a bike for one child to clothing and food for the parents. In conjuction with the California Collegiate Athletic Association as the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, Triton student-athletes have gone to work to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in each of the last three years. The student-athletes held a bake sale during the Annual Sun God Festival on the UCSD campus. Each team brought baked goods for a sale in the evening prior to the festival’s main event. The goal at each CCAA member institution was to raise $1 per studentathlete. Triton student-athletes far exceeded this goal, raising over $1,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in 2005. Additionally, the Intercollegiate Athletics Department holds an annual Blood Drive to benefit the American Red Cross. All coaches, staff and out of season studentathletes participated in the blood drive, while those student-athletes who were in season recruited other students on campus to donate blood on their behalf.
