STRENGTH & CONDITIONING Athletic excellence and strength and conditioning go handin-hand at West Virginia University. WVU’s strength and conditioning staff ensures that the swimming and diving athletes are on year-long programs designed to continue improving the fitness capabilities needed in their sports. The primary training goal for the Mountaineer swimmers and divers is injury prevention by correcting muscle imbalances and improving joint mobility. A more resilient athlete is a better athlete! The next focus is maximizing sports performance – primarily lower body strength and power, upper body strength and power, core strength, muscular endurance and general work capacity and fitness. Plyometric/jump training is done to increase explosiveness on starts, turns, underwater kicking and height off the boards. Each athlete is educated on correct dietary habits and essential vitamins and minerals necessary to be an elite athlete. Student-athletes have the opportunity to meet with nutritionists, go on guided grocery store tours and receive diets designed specifically for them.

COMMUNITY SERVICE The WVU swimming and diving teams recognize that it’s important to win in the pool, but the squad also realizes it’s equally important to win over the community by giving back in every possible aspect. Not only have the Mountaineers helped Morgantown become a better place through various humanitarian efforts, but the teams make the extra stride to travel outside of the immediate area to lend a hand. The team also regularly donates its time and knowledge by hosting and teaching local youth swim clubs, including West Virginia Aquatics, to learn the fundamentals of the sport. Along with strengthening the youngsters’ skills, they also teach the participants the importance of good sportsmanship, courage, determination and hard work. The WVU men’s team has been partnering with Habitat for Humanity to help rebuild houses throughout the past year. Mountaineer coaches and swimmers also take part in Relay for Life of Monongalia County, the American Cancer Society’s signature activity. It offers everyone in a community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Teams of people camp out at WVU’s outdoor track and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Relays are an overnight event, up to 24 hours in length.

STUDENT-ATHLETE SERVICES

West Virginia University’s graduation rate for student-athletes has been impressive, to say the least, over the past eight years. The ratio of student-athletes graduating to the general student body has increased almost every year. WVU’s combined varsity athletic teams have an Academic Progress Rate (APR) score of 975 according to data released today by the NCAA. The APR is based upon eligibility and retention of student-athletes over a four-year period, used as an assessment of real-time academic success. WVU’s average APR score of 975 is up one point from last year’s average is higher than the NCAA’s overall four-year APR average score of 973. For the 2010-11 academic year, West Virginia had three teams with perfect 1,000 scores: gymnastics, rowing and men’s soccer. The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) provides a forum for the “voice of the student-athlete” on WVU’s campus. SAAC membership provides feedback to administration about how to better WVU athletic programs. They offer input on the rules, regulations and policies that affect student-athletes’ lives on NCAA member institution campuses.

Kyle Gallo Assistant Coach Sixth Season

Kyle Gallo is in his sixth season with the Mountaineers and fifth as an assistant coach. Gallo assists coach Vic Riggs with the middistance, distance and stroke swimming, while also overseeing day-to-day operations, recruiting and academics. Gallo played a key part in sending eight swimmers, the most ever sent by WVU, to the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials this past summer in Omaha, Neb. The Mountaineers were represented in 15 different events during the Trials. The 2011-12 season was WVU’s most productive under the current coaching staff as the women placed 26th at the 2012 NCAA Championships. Rachael Burnett, Kata Fodor, Mandie Nugent and Danielle Smith earned All-America Honorable Mention honors as part of the 16thplace 800 free relay team. Burnett earned the honor twice more, finishing 14th in the 500 free and 11th in the 1650 free, while Nugent also earned the honor with a ninth-place finish in the 200 fly. At the 2012 Big East Championships, the women took third place and the men finished in fourth place as 15 members of the squad earned All-Big East honors. Burnett and Nugent led the women with seven top-three finishes, while Taylor Camp had three for the men. Burnett was named the Big East Women’s Most Outstanding Swimmer.

Under Gallo’s watch, 53 WVU records, 18 pool records and 13 Big East Championships records have been broken. In total, Gallo has coached one NCAA AllAmerican and 14 NCAA All-America Honorable Mentions. Kevin Donohue became the swimming program’s first-ever individual All-American with his fifth-place finish in the 100 breast at the 2008 NCAA Championships. Gallo also coached Jared Goldthorpe to a 10th-place finish in the 200 back at the 2011 NCAA Championships and Michael Walker to an 11th-place finish in the 400 IM. Burnett, Kayla Andrews, Morgan Callaway and Shaunna Purtell earned Honorable Mention All-American status with their 15th-place finish in the 400 free relay at the 2010 NCAA Championships. Gallo has most notably helped the team in the classroom, as both the men’s and women’s teams were named to the Collegiate Swim Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) All-Academic Team during the 2011-12 terms. The women have been honored nine consecutive semesters, while the men have earned the honor twice. In 2012, 24 swimmers and divers were honored by the Big East and named Big East Academic All-Stars.

The Sterling, Va., native has been coaching all ability levels and age groups for 13 years.

In the summer of 2009, Gallo received his master’s in physical education. Gallo was a four-year swimmer and 2005 captain of the WVU swim team, where he competed in the sprint free events.

Hugh Simmonds

Daeton Davenport

Men’s Season Preview WVU to rely heavily on freshmen class A mixture of experience and youth will play a heavy part in the success of the 2012-13 West Virginia University men’s swimming and diving team. The Mountaineers return 13 members from last year’s squad that finished fourth at the Big East Championships, while there will be 15 newcomers on squad. Freestyle Key returners for the freestyle group include senior Hugh Simmonds (200 free, 500 free), sophomore Nathan Cobbe (200 free, 500 free), Daeton Davenport (500 free, 1650 free). Simmonds will likely lead the group after finishing eighth in the 200 free and 13th in the 500 free at the Big East Championships last season. Davenport capped his freshman season with a sixth place finish in the 1650 free at the conference championships, while Cobbe finished fourth in the 200 free.

Newcomers Ross Glegg, Wali Toulson and Julian Vialette will all score points for WVU in the 50 free and 100 free. Glegg and Vialette both have experienced international careers and Toulson was the top sprinter in Palm Beach County.

Individual Medley Williams will be the main contributor in the individual medley events after taking fourth in the 200 IM at the Virginia Short Course Championships.

Backstroke Sophomore David Palley is the lone backstroke returner after taking 12th in the 200 back at the Big East Championships last season. Freshmen Jay Hickey and Andrew Marsh will provide depth in each event. Hickey finished 10th in the 100 back at last year’s Ohio state championships, while Marsh finished third in the 100 back at the New York state championships.

Diving The diving squad continues to get bigger and returns NCAA Zone qualifier, junior Richard Pokorny. Pokorny finished third on the 1-meter board and 11th on the 3-meter board at last season’s Big East Championships. Also returning is junior Liam McLaughlin, who sat out last season with an injury, while incoming freshmen include Keith Carmichael, Ibrahim Ismail and Christian Parker.

Butterfly Marsh will also swim the fly events as he was a New York state champion in the 100 fly, while fellow freshman Chase Williams finished 10th in the 100 fly and 12th in the 200 fly at the Virginia Short Course Championships. Breast After finishing 17th in the 200 breast and 18th in the 100 breast at the Big East Championships, sophomore Christopher Brill will lead the breaststroke group. Freshman Aidan Fumagalli will play a vital role as well after finishing second in the 100 breast at the Texas state championships last season.

66 | West Virginia University


Women’s Season Preview WVU senior class to provide leadership The women’s side will use a deep, accoladeladen senior class to lead a group of 11 newcomers into the Big 12 for the 2012-13 season. Last season, senior Rachael Burnett was named the Big East Women’s Most Outstanding Swimmer for the second-consecutive season as the women took third place at the championships. Freestyle The 50 free and 100 will continue to be led by junior Eva Burlingham, while freshman Jaimee Gillmore will joins the squad after finishing 13th in the 50 free and 18th in the 100 free at last season’s Florida state championships. The mid-distance and distance freestyle events continue to have the most depth and are anchored by Burnett, the 200 free, 500 free and 1650 free Big East champion. Senior Kata Fodor will follow closely after earning fourth in the 500 free and 1650 free at the Big East Championships. Senior Mandie Nugent and junior Danielle Smith also are top returners with Nugent taking second in the 500 free at the Big East Championships and Smith finishing ninth in the 500 free.

Backstroke Smith will also be a key contributor in the 100 back and 200 back at all levels as she finished second in the 100 back and third in the 200 back at the conference meet last season. Senior Nikki Vetterlein returns after taking ninth in the 200 back at BIG EASTs last year, while West Virginia state champion Courtney Miller will make an immediate impact. Butterfly Nugent is a three-time Big East Champion in the 200 fly and won the 100 fly last season, setting conference records in both events. Sophomore Julie Ogden had a breakout season that came to a close with a second-place finish behind Nugent in the 100 fly. Also expected to contribute is freshmen Natalie Johnsen and Kelsey Frantz. Breast After finishing seventh in the 200 breast and 12th in the 100 breast at the Big East Championships last season, senior Breanna McCann will lead the group of breaststrokers. Also expected to contribute is sophomore Jenelle Zee and freshman Morgan Emter. Zee finished 10th in the 100 breast at the Big East Championships.

Oliver Luck Director of Athletics Successful at each of his previous career stops, Oliver Luck continues that streak at West Virginia University. A former Mountaineer quarterback, Luck, appointed the University’s 11th Director of Athletics by President James P. Clements on June 9, 2010, has made significant strides in his first two years to enhance WVU’s role as a major player in the collegiate world. In his first year, Luck hired four head coaches, while maintaining WVU’s superior level of success. In addition to new hires, Luck oversaw the progress of major capital projects, such as the $25 million WVU basketball practice facility for men’s and women’s basketball and the women’s soccer training complex. He also fostered an atmosphere for achievement and triumph in the classroom and on the field. In year two, Luck led WVU into the Big 12 Conference, oversaw the best fundraising year in school history, implemented several safety and crowd enhancements at Mountaineer sporting events, increased overall department revenue, continued a master plan for facility upgrades and watched his football program gain its third BCS bowl victory with a recordsetting 70-33 win in the Orange Bowl. Luck’s athletic and professional career has been the epitome of success, first as a recordsetting quarterback for the Mountaineers from 1978-81, then as a professional quarterback for the National Football League’s Houston Oilers, and later as a professional sports executive. Luck’s journey to the big chair at WVU began in his native Cleveland, where in 1977 he was named the Cleveland Touchdown Club Player of the Year at St. Ignatius High. Luck chose WVU over Ivy League schools Harvard and Yale, embarking upon a career that saw him establish school records for touchdown passes and completions during his playing days, while also leading the Mountaineers to a 26-6 upset victory over Florida in the 1981 Peach Bowl. His best season came as a senior in 1981 when he completed 216 of 394 passes for 2,448 yards and 16 touchdowns. He passed for a career-high 360 yards in a 27-24 loss to Syracuse at the Carrier Dome in the final regular-season game of his career. Luck ended his college career with 5,765 yards and 43 touchdown passes, both figures still ranking among the best in school history. Luck was a two-time team MVP in 1980 and

Oliver Luck was a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-American quarterback at WVU. 1981, and also received the Louis D. Meisel Award for the WVU football student-athlete with the highest grade point average. The two-time ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American was the recipient of Today’s Top Five, presented for scholastics by the NCAA and was selected by the National Football Foundation as one of its 10 scholar-athletes to make a keynote speech at its annual banquet in 1982. Selected in the second round of the NFL draft by the Houston Oilers (44th overall pick), Luck spent four years with the Oilers from 1982-86. His most extended action came in 1983 when he started six games and finished the season completing 124-of-217 passes for 1,375 yards and eight touchdowns. After retiring from football, Luck became vice president of business development for the NFL and later was appointed general manager of the Frankfurt Galaxy of the newly created World League of American Football. He spent the ’95 season as general manager of the Rhein Fire before being named President and CEO of NFL Europe in 1996. Luck totaled more than 10 years with the NFL, before becoming chief executive officer of the Harris CountyHouston Sports Authority in 2001. In that role, Luck oversaw the development and management of a $1 billion professional sports and entertainment complex for the city of Houston that included Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros, Reliant Stadium, home of the Houston Texans, the Toyota Center, home of the Houston Rockets, Comets and Aeros and the Livestock Show and Rodeo. In 2005, Luck was appointed as the first president of Major League Soccer’s Houston Dynamos, helping that organization to a pair

of MLS Cup titles in his first two years at the helm. Luck secured the funding for an $80 million soccer complex to house the Dynamos when the call came to return to his alma mater. BBVA Compass Stadium was built and opened in 2012 adding to Luck’s legacy with the professional soccer team, and the overall Houston sports facility complexes. He returned in May, 2012 for the opening ceremony of the soccer stadium that he fought so hard for. Prior to his current position at WVU, Luck was appointed by then Gov. Joe Manchin in 2008 to a four-year term on the West Virginia University Board of Governors, a spot he relinquished to become director of athletics. The Rhodes Scholar finalist graduated Phi Betta Kappa from WVU in 1982. He also earned a law degree from Texas, graduating cum laude in 1987. In 1997, Luck was inducted into the West Virginia University Sports Hall of Fame, and in 2008, he was inducted into the CoSIDA Academic All-America Hall of Fame. ”It’s an incredible honor for me to be the athletic director at my alma mater,” said Luck. ”I care deeply about this school, and WVU is truly one of the outstanding land-grant universities in the country. I am so pleased to be a part of the leadership team assembled under President Clements at a dynamic and strategic time in its history.” He is married to the former Kathy Wilson. They have two sons and two daughters: Andrew, a former All-American quarterback and two-time Heisman Trophy finalist at Stanford and No. 1 overall pick of the 2012 NFL draft by the Indianapolis Colts; Mary Ellen, a junior volleyball player at Stanford; Emily, a freshman at Stanford and Addison, who attends Morgantown High.
