The University of Utah women’s swimming and diving team is looking for a successful season in its inaugural Pac-12 season in 2011-12. The Utes lost a strong senior class from last year’s team, including Natalie Edge, Kristian Evans, Maiya Otsuka, Alyssa Woodliff and Kwan Ling Yu, but they welcome back several top performers from last season as well as six new team members. “The women’s team is small this year, but they have a lot of talent,” Utah head coach Greg Winslow said. “We’re looking for a break out year on the women’s side.”

Caron was honored for the 100 and 200 fly along with the 200 IM. Zuch earned her spot in the 200 free and the 100 back, while Swartz took the honors for the 50 and 100 free. Walters made the team in platform and the 1-meter dive. Caron, Swartz and Zuch all hold places in the Utah record book, including a number one slot for Caron and two for Swartz. The Utes anticipate that all three will be competitive in the Pac- 12 and could possibly earn All-American accolades.

Backstroke Schedule

Both Swartz and Zuch are only sophomores and are expected to make big a impact for Utah this season and over the next two years. Swartz, Utah’s current school record holder in the 100 free, will return to compete in freestyle events. Swartz is also in the record books for the 50 free and multiple free relays. Zuch will also be back. She holds the second-fastest time in the 500 free in school history and the thirdfastest 200 free in school history.

Swartz will be a force in the backstroke events. As a freshman in 2010-11, Swartz smashed the standing Ute 100 back record by 2.5 seconds.

Maddie Jamora will add depth in the freestyle sprint events. Jamora hails from Kapoli, Hawaii and won the OIA 50 and 100 free state champion and set the state record in the event

Senior and co-captain Sarah Cox, along with Danielle Caldwell, will also compete in backstroke events.

Distance freestyle events will be headed by Rebecca Bott and Kayla Buck. The two will be joined by freshman LeighAnne Oliver.

Caron holds yet another school record in the 200 IM and will continue to lead the Utes in this discipline. Ligeza will also competing in the IM events for Utah.

Butterfly

“I think she has just scratched the surface of what she is capable of,” Winslow said. “She is already stronger than she was at the end of last year.”

IM

Diving

High hopes are aimed toward Caron for the 2011-12 season. Coming off her best season to date, Caron is the reigning two-time MWC champion in the 100 fly. At the NCAA Championships last season, she placed 30th in both the 100 and 200 fly events. Caron also claims the number two spot in the Utah record books for both the 100 and 200 fly. Breaststroke

Zuch, Nicole Ligeza and Oliver will represent Utah in the breaststroke events.

“This is the most talented group of divers we’ve had since I’ve been here,” said Winslow. “Both Jasmine Matkovic and Walters are putting together some fantastic dives.” Walters is entering her junior year and is looking better than ever. Last season, Walters was the MWC 1-meter champion and the MWC Diver of the Week on Dec. 7, 2010. Matkovic, an Australian native, comes to Utah after placing third in the 1-meter and 3-meter dives at the 2010 QLD State Championships.

The Utes kick off the season at the Intermountain Shootout (Oct. 7-8) where they will take on Northern Colorado, Colorado State and Colorado Mesa. Next, they will take a trip to California to face Stanford (Oct. 20) and California (Oct. 21). Following that, the Utah women face Washington State on Oct. 29 in their first home meet of the season. The Utah woman begin November with UNLV (Nov. 5) at home. Utah is on the road for the remainder of the month, facing Colorado State (Nov. 10), Colorado School of Mines (Nov. 11), and Denver, Northern Arizona, and Seattle University (Nov. 12) in a multiteam meet. At the tail-end of November, Utah diving will compete in the Wildcat Diving Invitational (Nov. 17-19). December brings the Incarnate Word Invitational (Dec.17-19). In January, the Utes will welcome Arizona to the Ute Natatorium (Jan. 7), then will face Oregon State and UCLA (Jan. 14). The Deseret First Duel against rival BYU (Jan. 27) comes at the end of January. Utah then will face Air Force (Feb. 10) for the second time in Colorado. The regular season wraps up with a home meet against USC (Feb. 17). The Pac-12 Diving Championships will take place in Federal Way, Wash., on Feb. 22-25 with the NCAA Zone Diving Championships held March 6-10 in USAFA, Colo. The NCAA Championships are scheduled for March 15-17 in Auburn, Ala.

“Zuch and Ligeza should be able to step right into where Otsuka left off,” Winslow said. “Both will be great on relays and are really driven. We are excited to have Oliver and to see what she can do.”

Senior Hannah Caron represented Utah at the 2011 NCAA Championships.

Sophomore Samantha Zuch is already in the top three of the school record book in two events, the 200 free and 500 free.

Traycie Swartz set two individual school records in the 100 back and 100 free and was a member of two school-record-setting relays at the 2011 MWC Championships.

UTAHUTES.COM

Ellis Walters was named to the 2011 All-MWC Team after winning the 1-meter and finishing fourth in the platform dive at the conference championships.

Women’s Season Outlook

Women’s Season Outlook

Last season, six Ute women were honored with all-Mountain West Conference recognition. Four of those chosen, Hannah Caron, Traycie Swartz, Samantha Zuch and diver Ellis Walters, will compete for Utah this season.

Freestyle


As the Utah men’s swimming and diving team embarks on its inaugural Pac-12 Conference season, the Utes hope to compete for a top spot with a strong core of returners coming back from last season as well as seven new team members. “I think this is going to be our best year on the men’s side,” Utah head coach Greg Winslow said. “Last year was fantastic. We broke six school records, including a 19-year-old one, so this year promises to be even better.”

Robinson earned his spot for his performance in the 200 back for the second straight year and in the 400 medley relay. Applin was honored for the 200 IM and for the second consecutive year in the 100 fly. Three Utah men’s relay teams were recognized, with returners Applin and Gunnarsson in both the 200 and 400 free relays and Fiascone as a part of the 400. Applin and Robinson also swam for the all-MWC 200 medley relay team. Foo was recognized for 3-meter and platform dives. Leadership is key for the Utes this season. They will look to senior co-captain Robinson and junior co-captain Andy Lamb as well as seniors Bonicelli and Murray to provide guidance for the entire team. “We have some great leadership in our seniors,” said Winslow. “Those guys know what it takes to be successful. They’ve accomplished a lot while leading this team, including beating BYU for the first time in several years.”

The incoming freshman will be a big part of the Ute freestyle lineup as both Nick Soedel and Winter Heaven figure to be huge assets to the Utah squad this season. Soedel comes to Utah as a two-time CIFDI champion in the 100 free and a Sunset League record holder in the 50 free. Joining him is Heaven, an Alaskan native. Heaven broke an unprecedented seven state records and broke every school record at Kenai High School. Heaven earned Swimmer of the Year honors in 2010 and 2011. Also competing in sprint freestyle events is junior Bjorn Gunnarsson. Last season, Gunnarsson finished 16th in the 50 free at the MWC Championships and won the 100 free during regular-season competition against Wyoming. “Sprint freestyles should be really strong,” Winslow said. “Gunnarson, Soedel, and Heaven, will be the three guys we look to there. Soedel is one of the top freestyle sprinters in the country and Heaven is a really talented kid. Both have the ability to do something really special.” Bonicelli will be the strength of the distance freestyle races. He is the current Utah record holder in the 1650 and will be Utah’s main distance competitor. Breaststroke

Applin and Corey Williams will return to compete in the breaststroke events. Last season, Applin placed 12th in the 100 breast at the MWC Championships and Williams took 15th in both the 100 and 200 breast events. Alongside them will be freshman Ken Titges, who was a two-time all-conference selection at Eastern Illinois. As a prep, Titges placed sixth in the state of Illinois in the 100 breast as a junior and seventh as a senior.

Diving With all three top Ute men returning, the men’s diving team has high expectations for this season. Foo, Brandon Stopplemoor and Caleb Herrick all placed in the top 10 at the MWC Diving Championships last season. Foo and Stopplemoor had top-20 finishes at the NCAA Diving Regionals. IM Murray and Applin will be back to compete in IM events. Last season at the MWC Championships, Murray placed eighth in the 400 IM while Applin took the sixth spot in the 200 IM. Applin earned a spot on the all-MWC team with his performance. The IM frontrunners will be joined by Tilges. Backstroke Lamb, Robinson and Fiascone will be the frontrunners for the Utes in the backstroke events and newcomer Soedel will join the ranks. Robinson placed fifth in the 200 back at the MWC Championships and was named to the all-MWC team for the second straight year. Butterfly In 2011, Applin placed fifth in the 100 fly and was named to the all-MWC team with an NCAA ‘B’ qualifying time. Applin is one of the top butterfly swimmers in the country and is expected to qualify for the NCAA Championships. Heaven and Murray will also swim in fly events.

Schedule The Utes kick off the season at the Intermountain Shootout (Oct. 7-8), where they will take on Air Force and Colorado Mesa. Next, they will take a trip to the Golden State to face Stanford (Oct. 20) and California (Oct. 21). Following that, Utah face UNLV (Nov. 5) in its first home meet of the season. Utah is on the road for the remainder of November, facing Air Force (Nov. 10), Colorado School of Mines (Nov. 11), and Denver, Northern Arizona, and Seattle University (Nov. 12) in a multi-team meet. At the tail-end of November, Utah diving will compete in the Wildcat Diving Invitational (Nov. 17-19). December brings the Incarnate Word Invitational (Dec.17-19). In January, the Utes will welcome Arizona to the Ute Natatorium (Jan. 7) then will face rival BYU (Jan. 27) in the Deseret First Duel. Utah then will meet Air Force (Feb. 10) for the third time in Colorado. The regular season will wrap up with a home meet against USC (Feb. 17). The Pac-12 Diving Championships will take place in Federal Way, Wash., on Feb. 22-25 with the NCAA Zone Diving Championships held March 6-10 in USAFA, Colo. The NCAA Championships are scheduled for March 22-24 in Federal Way, Wash.

“Applin, Williams, Titges will do a good job,” said coach Winslow. “We’ve broken the 200 breast record the last three years with three different guys and Corey is looking to continue that streak. We have always been really successful in that event.”

Senior co-captain Major Robinson earned his second consecutive all-MWC selection as part of Utah’s 400 medley relay.

Karson Applin will serve as a co-captain this season after earning two all-MWC awards in 2010-11.
