The Big 12 enters its 19th year, West Virginia enters its third season in one of the nation’s premier athletic conferences, whose focus is on stability, strength and success. Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby enters his third year with the conference. His leadership among the ten member schools continues to foster national recognition in the conference in academics and athletics. Big 12 institutions create a league that encompasses five states and nearly 37 million people. More than 4,200 student-athletes from across the United States and around the World compete annually in the sports sponsored by the Conference. The Big 12 is a strong conference that, like WVU, values quality academic and athletic programs, and has a great tradition of success. Whether in the pool, in the classroom, or within the community, the student-athletes, administrators, coaches and meet officials of the Big 12 support the highest ideals in sportsmanship. Since it began competition in 1996-97, the league can boast of 53 NCAA team titles and 552 individual national championships. In its first 17 years, the Conference has distributed more than $1.6 billion to its member institutions. The conference office is headquartered in Irving, Texas.

Athletic excellence and strength and conditioning go hand-in-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.

AQUATICFacilities

10


In the fall of 2015, nine public entities, including West Virginia University, committed to collaborate in building a state-of-the-art aquatic and track complex at Mylan Park. Recognizing the need for an Olympic sized 50-meter pool, the community and WVU are working together to make this possible. The $25-30 million facility, will be a community facility for all ages. It also will serve as the home to WVU’s swimming and diving, cross country and track and field teams. The aquatic facility will be approximately 75,000 squarefeet with a 50-meter competition pool, with seating for 1,000 spectators. The aquatic center will include a diving pool and tower, a warming pool, therapeutic pool, a family water park, an outdoor sun deck, two wet classrooms, a cardio fitness room, training space, locker rooms and multipurpose rooms for meetings and special occasions. Plans for an opening in the fall of 2017, officials hope to host future NCAA and Big 12 Championships at the new complex. Over the years the Mountaineers have competed at the WVU Natatorium, covering 119,000-square feet, with the pool itself covering 12,730 square feet and seats 500 spectators. The divers use a 13-1/2 foot diving well equipped with two 3-meter and two 1-meter boards, as well as a trampoline. WVUSwimmingandDiving

COMMUNITYService

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. WVUSwimmingandDiving

Department staff members work with coaches, on campus student service providers and faculty to help student-athletes meet the unique demands of the classroom, the supporting arena and the personal-social challenges they face as developing adults While many of the headlines center of the Mountaineers’ accomplishments on the playing field, West Virginia athletes have also made some noteworthy strides in the classroom. Some of those strides include of 11 consecutive years where the department has had at least one first team Academic All-American. To help its student-athletes achieve academic success, one of the nation’s finest facilities resides in the WVU Coliseum - The Athletic Academic Performance Center.

Over 500 student-athletes were honored on WVU’s Garrett Ford Academic Honor Roll. Implemented in 1989, the Garrett Ford Academic Honor Roll was created to recognize students who have achieved a grade point average of 3.0 or better. Since the program began in 1989, nearly 4,000 student-athletes have earned a place on the honor roll. Ford retired in 2011 after 44 years of service with the WVU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics.

VIC Riggs

HEAD COACH | Ninth Season at WVU

In his ninth season at West Virginia, Vic Riggs has helped the WVU swimming and diving teams climb to a nationally acclaimed status, and with an academic support system designed around the swimming and diving program, Riggs has built a team that is also recognized nationally for academic success. Throughout his coaching tenure at WVU, Riggs has coached 18 individual NCAA qualifiers, three NCAA AllAmericans, six Academic All-Americans, 10 NCAA honorable mention AllAmericans, three Big 12 Scholar-Athletes of the Year, 16 Olympic qualifiers and a four-time Olympic medalist.

Last Season

The 2014-15 season saw many accomplishments on both the WVU men’s and women’s squads. Riggs coached the men to a third-place finish in the Big 12 Conference and the women to a fourth-place finish. With a team goal of making it back to the NCAA Championships, Tim Squires and Andrew Marsh helped accomplish that. Marsh, a junior, qualified in three evets, while senior Squires qualified in two events for his second consecutive NCAA appearance. Fourteen Mountaineers earned All-Big 12 honors at the 2015 Big 12 Championship, including the schoolrecord-setting men’s 400-yard relay team of Marsh, Nate Carr, Ross Glegg and Squires. Riggs’ teams continued to excel in the classroom again in 2014-15. In total, the Mountaineers had 26 swimmers and divers earn Academic All-Big 12 honors, nine were earned Scholar All-America accolades by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America, while four were named Academic All-Americans by the College Sports Information Directors of America. In 2013-14, Riggs oversaw perhaps the greatest individual student-athlete performance in a single season in program history. Senior Bryce Bohman became just the second men’s swimmer in WVU history to earn First Team All-America honors at the 2014 NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships. Bohman set three individual school records (100 back, 200 back, 100 fly), was named the Big 12 Male Swimmer of the Year and earned CSCAA Scholar AllAmerica honors. Riggs coached the men to a 23rd overall finish at the 2014 NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships in Austin, Texas. He helped Tim Squires earn Big 12 Outstanding Swimmer of the Meet honors and coached nine student-athletes to CSCAA Individual Scholar All-America recognitions.

His endless devotion to academic success was evident as the women’s team posted the highest team GPA in the Big 12 Conference. The men’s and women’s squad together garnered CSCAA Scholar All-America distinctions.

2007-13

West Virginia had an incredibly successful inaugural season in the Big 12 Conference in 2012-13. Not only did the women produce their first First Team All-American, but nine school records were broken and a plethora of academic awards were attained. Also in 2012-13, in Riggs’ first Big 12 Championships, the women’s team finished second and the men’s team finished third. Burnett earned the Big 12’s Most Outstanding Swimmer award, winning the 200 free, 500 free and 1650 free. Nugent added a win in the 200 fly during the championships. The men’s squad took first in the 400 medley relay and second in the 200 medley relay, while Christopher Brill took second in the 200 breast and third in the 100 breast. Ross Glegg added a pair of third-place finishes in the 100 free and 200 free. Riggs had his most successful season as a head coach in 2011-12, leading the women and men to third- and fourth-place finishes, respectively, at the Big East Championships. For his efforts, he was named the Big East Women’s Swimming Coach of the Year. The team placed 15 members on the all-conference squad with Burnett and Nugent leading the way with seven top-three finishes for the women, while Taylor Camp had three for the men. Burnett was named the Big East Women’s Most Outstanding Swimmer. Four different women earned a total of seven All-America Honorable Mention honors at the NCAA Championships as the team placed 26th. Burnett, Nugent, Kata Fodor and Danielle Smith finished 16th in the 800 free relay. Burnett earned the honor twice more, finishing 14th in the 500 free and 11th in the 1650 free, while Nugent took ninth in the 200 fly. Riggs also sent eight swimmers to the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials in Omaha, Nebraska, the most ever from WVU. The Mountaineers were represented in 15 different events during the Trials. In total, 10 school records, three pool records and five Big East records were broken with Burnett leading the way behind four individual and two relay. Both squads continued success in the 2010-11 season with the women finishing third at the Big East Championships, while the men finished in fourth place. A total of six school records were broken throughout the season, one being a Big East record. For the men, Jared Goldthorpe broke the 200 back school record with a 10th-place finish in the NCAA Championships to earn All-America Honorable Mention status. The women’s squad saw Burnett and Nugent named the Co-Big East Women’s Most Outstanding Swimmers at the Big East Championships. Burnett took wins in both the 500 free and 400 IM at the championships, while finishing sixth in the 200 fly. Nugent won the 200 fly on the final day of competition after setting a new Big East and school record time of 1:56.64 in the preliminary session. Nugent also finished second in the 100 fly and fourth in the 500 free. Riggs had an astonishing season in 2009-10, with the women breaking three Big East records, 12 school records and three pools records, while the men broke four school records and two pool records. At the NCAA Championships, Burnett, Kayla Andrews, Morgan Callaway and Shaunna Purtell earned All-America Honorable Mention honors with their 15th-place finish in the 400 free relay.

Andrews, Burnett, Callaway, Goldthorpe, Nugent and George Farquhar were all individual Big East champions as well. In 2008-09, there were 11 school records broken for the women’s team and five for the men. The women also sent three athletes to the NCAA Championships, with Michael Walker representing the men, finishing the 400 IM with All-America Honorable Mention honors. Andrews, Callaway, Lindsey Largo and Walker were all Big East champions, with Callaway being named women’s Big East Most Outstanding Swimmer at the meet. The 2008-09 recruiting class also was a best for Riggs and his staff, as the men’s class was ranked 17th nationally and the women 24th.

SWIMMINGPreview 2015-16

The 2015-16 WVU swimming and diving teams are equipped for its fourth season in the Big 12 Conference and its ninth under the direction of head coach Vic Riggs. Riggs led the men’s squad to a third-place finish at the 2015 Big 12 Championship and led the women’s team to a fourthplace finish. He coached two individuals on the men’s team to qualify at the 2015 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championship. Additionally, four team records were broken, three pool records set and two long course marks were broken.

Seniors

Fifteen seniors return as they begin their final season as Mountaineers. Despite the fact that Riggs won’t rely solely on his seniors, the eight seniors on the women’s team and seven on the men’s squad will provide valuable experience and leadership. One swimmer who will be setting an example in the water is senior Andrew Marsh. A Scholar All-America First Team honoree, Marsh was one of two Mountaineers who qualified for the NCAA Championships last year. Also returning, after earning national academic honors in 2014-15 are seniors Jaimee Gillmore and Lindsay Schmidt, who were named to the Scholar All-America Honorable Mention Team by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America. Additionally, both the men’s and women’s teams were honored by the CSCAA and named Scholar All-America Teams in recognition of the teams’ overall GPA.

Newcomers

A total of 28 newcomers will join the squad, with 13 on the men’s team and 15 on the women’s team. Six new divers join the Mountaineers, including four women and two men.

66

“We have one of our strongest classes in years,” noted Riggs. “Each brings a strong academic background along with their swimming talents. The staff has done a great job with this class, and it is one of our most diverse. We feel we have addressed many of our needs. We continue to attract the top talent in the state of West Virginia with the addition of six West Virginians along with several international and country-wide new Mountaineers.”

Home Events

The meet, the first of six home events in eight days, serves as the starting point for coach Riggs’ ninth season in Morgantown, and it comes on the heels of a strong preseason for Riggs and the Mountaineers. The Mountaineers opens the season hosting the West Virginia State Games at the WVU Natatorium on Oct. 8-9. In addition to the West Virginia State Games, WVU plays host to the Big 12 vs. ACC Weekend on Oct. 16 vs. Georgia Tech and on Oct. 17 vs. Virginia Tech. Following the weekend, the team hosts the Big 12 vs. Big East Weekend, when Butler, Seton Hall and Xavier come to the WVU Natatorium on Oct. 23-24. WVU ushers in 2016 with the swimming and diving edition of the “Backyard Brawl” against Pitt in Morgantown on Jan. 9 at 10 a.m. The home slate concludes on Jan. 29 as the women face Big 12 foe Iowa State and the men and women square off against Villanova.

A total of 10 WVU records were broken, six swimming and four diving, in the 2014-15 season. There were a total of 138 lifetime best swims and 30 NCAA B-Cut standards met last season. Junior diver Lindsay Schmidt set a school record of 322.60 on the 3-meter board to earn All-Big 12 First Team honors at the Big 12 Championship. Her record setting performance earned her a qualifying spot to the NCAA Zone A Diving Championships in that event.

SHANELyons DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

West Virginia native Shane Lyons was named director of Intercollegiate Athletics and associate vice president at West Virginia University in January 2015. Lyons came to West Virginia after spending three years as the deputy director of athletics and chief operating officer at Alabama where he worked closely on day-to-day strategic leadership and direction with Alabama athletic directors – the late Mal Moore and current athletic director Bill Battle. At WVU, Lyons has oversight of 18 varsity sports, a department budget of approximately $80 million, 220 employees, approximately 450 student-athletes and a facilities master plan that included the opening of a $21 million baseball park and more $75 million to modernize other athletic venues in the next three years. During his time at Alabama, his responsibilities included oversight of a $120 million budget, daily monitoring of compliance and oversight of the Crimson Tide’s 21 sports teams. In addition, he played a pivotal role in a historic renegotiation of Alabama’s multimedia rights agreement that started in 2014 and was involved in several significant capital projects totaling more than $85 million. The Crimson Tide won seven national titles in five different sports during his time there – two in football, two in men’s golf, one in women’s golf, one in gymnastics and one in softball. He also played a critical role in the hiring of four Alabama head coaches. Prior to joining the Alabama staff in November 2011, Lyons spent 10 years as an associate commissioner at the Atlantic Coast Conference. At the ACC, Lyons focused on conference-wide compliance and academic initiatives, providing direct assistance to the conference’s presidents, chancellors and athletics directors in matters dealing with NCAA regulatory matters. In addition, he served as the ACC’s human resource manager and was responsible for the administration, negotiation and mediation of the employee benefits program and managing the conference’s organizational policies and procedures. He was part of the administrative team for ACC events, including the football championship game, the men’s basketball tournament and men’s and women’s NCAA basketball events. He also was a member and served as chairman on many prominent committees within the NCAA Governance structure during his tenure with the ACC. Prior to working at the ACC, Lyons served as associate athletics director for compliance at Big 12 member Texas Tech from 1998 to 2001. During that time, Lyons assumed responsibility for the leadership, administration and implementation of a comprehensive NCAA compliance program with emphasis toward rules education and extensive monitoring systems. He also served as oversight administrator for several of the Red Raiders’ athletic teams and had financial and operational supervision of the strength and conditioning, nutritional and sports medicine units. Before joining Texas Tech, Lyons worked at the NCAA for almost 10 years as a senior membership services representative, where he was responsible for the oversight and coordination of the 25 membership service representatives. Lyons began his career in college athletics in July 1988 as assistant commissioner of the Big South Conference. With the Big South, he was in charge of conference-wide compliance and championships.

A native of Parkersburg, West Virginia, and a graduate of Parkersburg High, Lyons was a standout basketball player for the Big Reds. He earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in sport management from WVU in 1987 and 1988, respectively. He and his wife, Emily, a graduate of the University of WisconsinMadison, have two children: Cameron, 16, and Brooke, 12. Lyons is the University’s 12th athletic director.
