Jose “Keno” Gandara accepted the position of head volleyball coach at the University of Miami on March 20, 2013, becoming the second head coach since the program returned in 2001. In Gandara's ninth season at the helm in 2021, Miami returned to the postseason for the first time since 2017 and fifth time under his direction. The Canes advance to the second round of the tournament in the Gainesville Region, ultimately falling to site host Florida. UM finished the season 25-5 overall, with 15 wins coming by way of sweep, and 15-3 in conference play on its way to a second-place finish in the ACC, all program bests under Gandara and the most wins in a season since 2012 when the team posted 26. The Hurricanes finished the year ranked 14th in the RPI and 25th in the AVCA Division I Coaches Poll. Individually, the Canes saw success with Gandara's leadership as Savannah Vach, Janice Leao and Angela Grieve earned regional recognition. Vach and Leao earned AVCA East All-Region, while Grieve was an all-region honorable mention. Leao also garnered AVCA All-American Honorable Mention. Vach added to her resume with All-ACC First Team, while teammates Grieve, Leao and Priscilla Hernandez were tabbed All-ACC Second Team. Peyman Yardimci tallied a strong freshman campaign to earn a spot on the All-ACC Freshman Team. The trio of Grieve, Yardimci and Hernandez rounded out the Canes awards as all three garnered ACC All-Academic Team honors. Gandara led Miami as one of the top blocking teams in the nation. The hurricanes ranked 16th in the country with 2.65 blocks per set and 32nd with 284 total blocks. Behind his leadership, the Miami was among the top in the ACC in several categories at the end of the regular season. The Canes were sixth in hitting percentage (.244), second in opponent hitting percentage (.188), fifth in assists per set (12.51), third in total blocks (271) and blocks per set (2.63), second in digs per set (15.23) and fifth in total digs (1569). The Hurricanes returned the NCAA Championship in 2017 for the fourth time in five seasons under Gandara's leadership. Miami won its first postseason match since 2014, defeating the College of Charleston in the opening round of the tournament in a Gainesville, Fla. The Canes fell to No. 2 Florida in four sets in an exciting second round matchup to close the season 22-6 and finish with their best winning percentage since 2012. Senior outside hitter Olga Strantzali was named ACC Player of the Year and AVCA East Coast Region Player of the Year. Strantzali was joined by redshirt junior setter Haley Templeton on the All-ACC First Team and AVCA All-East Coast Region team. Strantzali and Templeton topped off a memorable season with AVCA All-America Honorable Mention recognition. The Canes both started and finished the campaign strong, winning the first nine matches and the seven contests prior to falling to second-seeded Florida. Miami topped the ACC in service aces with 1.71 per set and finished the season in the top three of two additional categories – hitting percentage (second with .246) and kills (tied for third with 13.64 per set). In 2016, Gandara led a resilient Miami squad that proved to rise to the occasion when it stepped into an opponent's gym. The 2016 Hurricanes won 11 matches away from Coral Gables, picking up big road wins at Notre Dame and Louisville. Junior outside hitter Olga Strantzali developed into one of the best players in the country, receiving AVCA All-America honorable mention and earned AVCA All-East Coast Region and First Team All-ACC honors. Strantzali and freshman setter Hannah Sorensen were named to the All-ACC Academic Team in recognition of their success on the court and in the classroom. Gandara led the Hurricanes to three straight NCAA Tournaments in his first three seasons at the helm of the Miami volleyball program. The Canes were selected to the 2015 NCAA Tournament, where they faced Iowa State in a first round match in Madison, Wis. The Canes finished the season 21-10 and 14-6 in the ACC, while Miami's 21 wins marked the second consecutive 20-win season under Gandara's leadership. The Hurricanes saw seniors Alexis Mourning and Taylor Scott, as well as sophomores Olga Strantzali and Haley Templeton, named to the 2015 All-ACC Second Team with Strantzali and Templeton also earning AVCA All-East Coast Region Honorable Mention. Miami reached the NCAA Tournament for the sixth consecutive season in 2014 and seventh time in program history. The Hurricanes, who finished the season 22-9, defeated UCF in five sets in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The victory was Gandara's first NCAA Tournament win as a head coach. Miami's 22 wins also gave Gandara his first 20-win season at the helm of the program. The Canes reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament before falling to No. 8 Florida in four sets. But Gandara helped develop several players to reach unprecedented levels of success. Senior outside hitter Savanah Leaf was named 2014 ACC Player of the Year and a second team AVCA All-American, while freshman Haley Templeton earned ACC Freshman of the Year honors. Leaf was joined by senior middle blocker Emani Sims on the All-ACC First Team, while Templeton was picked for the All-ACC Second Team and the All-ACC Freshman Team. The accolades continued for the trio as Leaf and Sims were named AVCA East Coast All-Region selections and Templeton was tabbed as the AVCA East Coast Region Freshman of the Year. The 2013 season was filled with firsts for Gandara. He secured his first win as a NCAA head coach on Aug. 30, when Miami defeated Austin Peay, 3-1. Gandara collected his first home win when Miami beat LSU in five sets on Sept. 14. The first-year head coach tallied his first ACC win when the Canes defeated Boston College in five sets on Sept. 28. Gandara also guided the Canes to their fifth straight NCAA Tournament appearance and first under his tutelage. The Hurricanes dropped their first round match against Oregon in three sets, but 2013 was still a successful first season under Gandara. Miami had four players earn All-ACC distinction, including Savanah Leaf and Emani Sims (first team), Alexis Mourning (second team) and Ryan Shaffer (third team). The Canes defeated No. 12 North Carolina at home and earned one of the coveted 64 spots in the NCAA Tournament. Gandara came to Miami after spending eight years as an assistant at the University of Washington. He previously served as an assistant at UNLV and his alma mater, UC Santa Barbara. Gandara is a highly-respected teacher who has played and coached at the top levels of college and professional volleyball. Keno assisted former Washington head coach Jim McLaughlin with all aspects of coaching, including opponent scouting and contributing to the Huskies' defensive package. The Huskies won a National Championship in Keno's first year on staff, 2005, and reached the 2006 Final Four. Gandara began his coaching career at UCSB in 1992 as an assistant with the men's team and was an assistant with the women's team in 1994. He also spent one season as a head coach/player with the San Juan Volleyball club in the Puerto Rico Professional League. A San Juan, Puerto Rico, native, Gandara graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 1990 after a successful volleyball career with the Gauchos as a middle blocker. Gandara was a first team All-America selection in 1989 and second team selection in 1988 after leading UCSB to the national title match. He was also a two-time all-conference honoree. Gandara has also been inducted into the UCSB Hall of Fame. He also represented both the United States and Puerto Rico in international competition as a member of their respective national volleyball teams. Gandara is married to Stephanie Cox who was a standout setter at UCSB and played on the AVP Tour. The couple welcomed their first child, a son named Lucas, in April 2011.

An illustrious coaching heritage is embedded in the foundation of Clemson football. At the dawn of the 20th century, the Tigers were led by future College Football Hall of Famer John Heisman. Hall of Famers Jess Neely, Frank Howard and Danny Ford followed in Heisman's winning tradition. Now entering his 15th season (and 14th full season) as Clemson's head coach, Dabo Swinney has already carved his name into that foundation, elevating himself amid a pantheon of Clemson greats by becoming the first coach in program history to lead Clemson to multiple national championships. Swinney's stratospheric start to his head coaching career placed his record not only among Clemson legends but also among the names of the winningest leaders in the more than 150 years of major college football. With his final win of the 2021 season, Swinney reached 150 career wins in his 186th game as head coach. In terms of games played, Swinney became the sixth-fastest coach in FBS history — and the fourth-fastest in the modern era — to earn 150 career wins, trailing Urban Meyer (176), Gil Dobie (180), Barry Switzer (180), Fielding Yost (184) and Joe Paterno (184). Entering 2022, only 16 coaches in FBS history including Swinney had accomplished the feat within 200 games, and 14 of the 16 had been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, with the lone exceptions being Swinney and Meyer, both of whom are not yet eligible. The 150th win came in Swinney's 13th full season and his 14th season overall including his seven-game interim stint in 2008. He moved into third place in FBS history for the most coaching wins in the first 15 seasons of a head coaching career, trailing only Meyer (165) and Bob Stoops (160). Swinney will have the opportunity to take aim at both in his 15th season as head coach in 2022. Though other seasons resulted in more hardware, analysts and observers opined that 2021 might have been Swinney's best coaching job, as the Tiger mentor guided his team through adversity and attrition to overcome a 2-2 start to finish 10-3 and extend Clemson's streak of consecutive 10-win seasons to 11. Clemson entered that October as one of 28 Power Five teams with two or more losses, yet concluded the season along as one of only two of those 28 programs to finish the season having reached 10 wins. Swinney's 2021 Tigers played seven one-possession games, one shy of the school record, and went 5-2 in those contests. The squad's success came in spite of tremendous turnover and attrition, as 48 different players earned at least one start, eight more than started in the pandemic-impacted 2020 season. Only 23 Clemson players played in all 13 games, and only four offensive or defensive players started all 13. Between injuries and transfers, Swinney held aloft the 2021 Cheez-It Bowl trophy following a game Clemson finished without the services of 30 scholarship players from its initial fall roster. A year earlier, Swinney's squad accomplished its “double-double mission” in 2020, going 10-2 in a condensed season to give Clemson 10 consecutive 10-win seasons. Clemson became only the third program in FBS history to accomplish the feat and became the first school to win 10 games in 10 straight seasons as a member of the ACC, as only the final nine of Florida State's record 14-straight 10-win seasons came during the Seminoles' tenure in the ACC. The pandemic-affected 2020 campaign was a historic one for the Tigers both as a team and individually, as quarterback Trevor Lawrence ascended to become the winningest quarterback in school history (34-2) and running back Travis Etienne added the ACC's all-time rushing crown (4,952 yards) to his arsenal of school and conference records. Etienne's versatility as a rusher and receiver earned him consensus All-American honors as an all-purpose selection, while Lawrence became the second Heisman Trophy finalist in program history, tying Deshaun Watson (second in 2016) for the highest finish in Heisman Trophy voting in school history. The prolific backfield duo under Swinney's tutelage helped guide Clemson to its sixth consecutive outright conference title with a 34-10 win against Notre Dame in the ACC Championship Game. That day, Clemson and Oklahoma's six-year streaks of outright conference titles made the two programs the first among current Power Five programs to win at least six straight outright titles since Oklahoma (12 from 1948-59) as part of the now-dissolved Big 8 Conference. The conference title helped Clemson secure its record-tying sixth College Football Playoff berth, becoming the first program ever to reach the postseason tournament in six consecutive seasons. Clemson is 6-4 all-time in College Football Playoff games, the second-most wins of any program and twice the number of the third-place programs (three, Georgia and Ohio State). Clemson finished the 2020 season as the nation's No. 3-ranked squad, the Tigers' sixth consecutive top-four finish in the AP poll. In doing so, Swinney joined Bobby Bowden (13), Pete Carroll (7) and Bud Wilkinson (6) as the only coaches since the AP Poll's inception in 1936 to record six consecutive top-four finishes. In that stretch, Clemson appeared in the top five of 57 consecutive AP Polls, the second-longest streak in poll history. Clemson entered the third decade of the 21st century in 2020 after Swinney helped author one of the most prolific 10-year periods in the history of the sport. Clemson posted a 117-22 record under Swinney's leadership in the 2010s, and the program's 117 wins trailed only Penn (124 in the 1890s) and Alabama (124 in the 2010s) to tie for the third-most in a decade in major college football since 1890. Clemson's 117 wins in 2010s represented the first 100-win decade in Clemson history. Before a pandemic-shortened season in 2020, Clemson won at least 12 games in five straight seasons from 2015-19, tied for the longest such streak in the modern era and only two seasons shy of Penn's record seven-season streak from 1892-98. Clemson won 69 games in that five-year span, the most in a five-year stretch in the AP Poll era. In 2019, the Tigers earned their fifth consecutive College Football Playoff berth following their fifth-consecutive ACC title, becoming the first team in college football history to win five straight conference championship games since conference title games were created in 1992.  Clemson posted a 14-1 record that year, earning its fourth appearance in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in five years. Prior to the season finale, Clemson extended its school-record winning streak to 29 games, tied with Florida State (2012-14) for the longest streak in ACC history and for the 12th-longest in FBS history. Clemson dominated the vast majority of its 2019 opponents, including an eight-game streak of wins by 30 or more points to break the longest streak in the AP Poll era, surpassing the previous mark of seven games set by 2011 Houston and 1976 Michigan. At 150-36, Swinney (.806) enters the 2022 season as the winningest active coach by percentage in the FBS among coaches with at least 10 seasons of head coaching experience. With an initial hire date of Oct. 13, 2008, he is the senior member of the ACC's head coaching fraternity and enters 2022 as the ninth-longest-tenured head coach in the FBS.  Clemson's success on the gridiron has been matched by its prowess in the classroom, as prior to the NCAA suspending APR reporting during the COVID-19 pandemic, Clemson was one of only three programs to earn top-10 percent APR recognition from the NCAA in at least nine of the previous 10 years, joining Duke and Northwestern. Clemson was in the top 10 of APR scores and the final top 25 of the AP and USA Today polls from 2011-15, the only FBS program that could make that claim. In 2017, Clemson became the first school to reach the College Football Playoff and finish in the top five of APR scores in the same year.  Clemson also produced the 2018 William V. Campbell Trophy winner (known colloquially as the “Academic Heisman”) in Christian Wilkins and won the program's first AFCA Academic Achievement Award. Clemson repeated as AFCA Academic Achievement Award recipients in 2019, becoming the only school in the country to repeat and doing so while appearing in the national championship game in both seasons. Swinney and Clemson's 2018 season was one for which statistics and superlatives accumulated in historic fashion. The Tigers became the first major college football team in the modern era (and the first since Penn in 1897) to finish a season with a 15-0 record.  The list of “firsts” was long and distinguished. Clemson became the first program to win four consecutive Atlantic Division titles, and with a 42-10 win against Pittsburgh in the ACC Championship Game, it became the first program to win four straight ACC titles outright.  Clemson's 15 wins included a school-record 12 against teams who finished with winning records. Clemson won by an average margin of 31.1 points per game, the best in the nation and the second-largest in school history, trailing only a 35.3-point average margin in 1900. Among the seasons it passed was a 30.4-point average margin in 1901, a season in which Clemson won one of its five games by a score of 122-0. Clemson set school records in points (664) and total offense (7,718, also an ACC record). The defense held opponents to 13.1 points per game, leading the country in scoring defense for the first time in school history.  A critical point in the season came four games into the campaign. Following a 49-21 win at Georgia Tech in which true freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence threw for four touchdowns in reserve, Swinney and the coaching staff elected to name Lawrence the starter, supplanting senior Kelly Bryant, who had led the Tigers to a 16-2 career record as a starter.  With Lawrence leading Swinney's Tigers, Clemson took flight. After a dramatic come-from-behind 27-23 win against Syracuse in which Lawrence exited the game with an injury, Clemson rattled off 10 consecutive wins of 20 points or more to conclude the season, including blowout wins of No. 3 Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl and No. 1 Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship. Seven players earned first or second-team All-America honors, including a school-record three players who collected consensus honors. The 2018 Tigers produced a team-record 18 All-ACC picks and became the first team to produce the ACC Player of the Year, ACC Offensive Player of the Year, ACC Defensive Player of the Year, ACC Offensive Rookie of the Year and ACC Coach of the Year in a season since Florida State in 1997. Accolades also accumulated for Swinney, who earned his second career ACC Coach-of-the-Year honor and brought home the Woody Hayes Award as national coach of the year. Less than a week after winning the national title, he also won the Paul “Bear” Bryant Award, becoming the first three-time winner of the award. Including the 2018 Bryant and Hayes Awards, he has won national coach-of-the-year honors from at least one organization in five of the last nine years. The 2018 season was preceded by a 2017 campaign in which Clemson was on a mission to prove that it was built to last. Swinney guided the team to a 12-2 record, an ACC title and a College Football Playoff berth despite having only six scholarship seniors and losing players who accounted for 77 percent of the offense during the 2016 national championship season. While Clemson was ranked No. 5 in the preseason AP Poll, few expected the Tigers to be ranked No. 1 in both polls and the College Football Playoff ranking entering the bowl season. In fact, Clemson was not even the preseason choice to win the ACC Atlantic Division.  Despite a setback in the Sugar Bowl to the eventual national champion, Alabama, Clemson finished ranked No. 4 in both polls. He was inducted into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame following the season. Clemson's school-record six wins over top-25 teams in 2017, also a national best, included a school-record four on opponents' home fields and five away from home. The defense, including three defensive linemen, featured four players who were named All-American, helping Clemson rank in the top four in the nation in scoring defense (No. 2) and total defense (No. 4). Clemson led the ACC in the four major defensive categories (scoring, total, rushing, passing), a first in history. The 2016 Tigers lived up to their hype after compiling a 14-1 record and earning a spot in the College Football Playoff for the second-straight year. Along the way, Clemson knocked off five top-25 foes. Clemson defeated the top two teams in the national polls in consecutive games in the College Football Playoff at the end of the season. The Tigers blanked Ohio State, 31-0, in the Fiesta Bowl, the first shutout suffered by head coach Urban Meyer in his career and the first for Ohio State since 1993. The Tigers then earned a rematch with No. 1 Alabama, and for the first time in school history, took down the top-ranked team in a second epic battle with the storied Crimson Tide program. Quarterback Deshaun Watson's touchdown pass to Hunter Renfrow with one second left on the clock gave Clemson a dramatic 35-31 victory in Tampa, Fla. Swinney received the Bear Bryant Award as national coach-of-the-year for the second consecutive season. Swinney coached Watson to two record-setting seasons in 2015 and 2016. The two-time Heisman Trophy finalist became the first player in FBS history to total 4,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a season in 2015, and he followed by setting an ACC record with 41 passing touchdowns in 2016. Watson won both  the Davey O'Brien Award and Manning Award in back-to-back seasons. Swinney guided Clemson to the No. 1 national ranking in every College Football Playoff poll in 2015 and led the Tigers to their first national championship game appearance under the new format after his team defeated Oklahoma, 37-17, in the 2015 Orange Bowl. The Tigers led Alabama in the fourth quarter of the championship contest, but came up just short (45-40) in an epic game in Glendale, Ariz. Following the team's 14-1 record and No. 2 final ranking, he was the recipient of 10 national and two ACC Coach-of-the-Year honors.  In 2015, a then-Tiger-record 17 players were named to one of three All-ACC teams, including all five starting offensive linemen for the first time in school history. In 2016, 15 players were honored, including a school-record three first-team All-ACC offensive line selections. The 2012, 2013 and 2014 seasons were also noteworthy, with three top-15 final rankings.  With a 40-6 Russell Athletic Bowl victory over Oklahoma in 2014, Swinney became the first coach in history to win three bowl games in consecutive seasons over teams whose head coaches had previously won the national title. He upped that mark to five years in a row in 2016. Clemson capped off the 2013 season with a thrilling 40-35 victory over No. 6 Ohio State in the Orange Bowl. Clemson had an 11-2 record after finishing 7-1 in ACC regular-season games. It marked Clemson's first back-to-back 11-win seasons in school history. For the fourth time in his first five full seasons as head coach, Swinney was a finalist for the Liberty Mutual National Coach of the Year in 2013. The 2012 season (11-2) was a groundbreaking year for Swinney's Tigers when looking at the overall consistency of the program. The seven conference wins in the regular season were then a school record, while Clemson was co-champion of the ACC Atlantic Division. With Clemson's thrilling 25-24 win over No. 7 LSU in the 2012 Chick-fil-A Bowl, the Tigers finished the season ranked No. 9 in the USA Today poll. It was Clemson's first top-10 finish in one of the two major polls since 1990. Clemson also reached the 11-win mark for the first time since its 1981 national championship season.  Swinney's 2011 squad, which ended the season ranked No. 22 in the nation, captured Clemson's first ACC title since 1991 when it beat No. 3 Virginia Tech, 38-10, in the ACC Championship Game in Charlotte, N.C. It gave Clemson its first 10-win season since 1990. For his efforts, Swinney was named Bobby Dodd National Coach of the Year in 2011 to become the first Tiger head coach to win a national coach-of-the-year award since Ford in 1981. In 2010, Swinney became just the second Tiger coach to lead Clemson to a bowl game in his first two full years as head coach, joining his predecessor, Tommy Bowden. The 2010 schedule was one of the most challenging in school history, as nine bowl teams were on the regular-season slate and two of the four non-conference opponents were ranked in the top 25. In 2009, Swinney's first full season as head coach at Clemson, he led the Tigers to their first title of the ACC Atlantic Division. The Tigers came just six points short of winning their first ACC title in 18 years. Swinney was named ACC Coach of the Year by Sporting News and was a finalist for the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year. In October 2008, Swinney was named Clemson's interim head coach, replacing Bowden, who had been his position coach as a player at Alabama and was Clemson's head coach since 1999. He led the Tigers to a 4-2 record during the rest of the 2008 regular season, including a win over South Carolina in the regular-season finale to earn a Gator Bowl bid against Nebraska. On Dec. 1, 2008, his interim tag was removed and he was named the program's head coach. At the time, there had been 28 interim head coaches at the FBS level since 1970, and those coaches had combined for a 26-86-2 record. Only one of those 28 interim coaches posted a winning record, and that was Swinney. When he was hired as head coach, he became just the second interim coach to be elevated to the head coach position at the same school during that time period. Swinney hit the ground running in his first week as interim head coach, as he prepared for a 5-1 Georgia Tech team. He had to reorganize his staff and regroup his team and the fanbase in just five days. While the Tigers lost by four points, he accomplished many goals in that first week through his outstanding leadership. One of the most impressive demonstrations of unity came during the team's “Tiger Walk,” which has since become a staple of Clemson's game day routine for both the team and fans. Swinney has demonstrated his dedication to the community through Dabo's All In Team Foundation. Since 2009, the Swinney family and Dabo's All In Team Foundation have given more than $7.8 million back to communities and programs in the state. In its inaugural year, the foundation made the first contribution to the cancer fund established for former Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich, and many schools followed its lead during the remainder of the season. In 2021, the foundation distributed roughly $1.2 million in financial support to their core focus areas, with $800,000 of that being distributed to more than 200 deserving organizations and non-profits through the foundation's grant program. In 2019, the foundation awarded a record $1,082,000 in grant funding to more than 165 and raised $400,000 for breast cancer research and prevention during the organization's annual Ladies Clinic. The foundation's efforts went virtual in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, as the organization's ALL IN Virtual Fundraising Event alone raised nearly $1 million for organizations and efforts in South Carolina. Swinney was named as the honorary coach for the 2019 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, an honor for which Watson, a former Good Works Team selection, returned to Clemson to surprise Swinney during a team meeting. In the spring of 2021, Swinney accepted the Uncommon Award from Pro Football Hall of Fame Coach Tony Dungy, who presents the honor annually to figures in football who “take the tough road, follow a higher calling and set a higher standard.” The 1993 Alabama graduate joined the Clemson staff prior to the 2003 season. In his first 19 years as an assistant or head coach, the Tigers finished in the top 25 of the polls 15 times and totaled 42 wins over top-25 teams. Swinney coached his wide receiver position to a level of consistency that had not been seen previously at Clemson. He had a wide receiver finish first or second in the ACC in catches in five of his six seasons as an assistant coach. In his first season, he had three of the top-10 receivers in the conference, a first in Tiger history. In his 19 seasons at Clemson, a Tiger wide receiver has earned All-ACC status in 17 of those campaigns, including a first- or second-team All-ACC selection (Derrick Hamilton, Airese Currie, Chansi Stuckey, Aaron Kelly, Jacoby Ford, Sammy Watkins, DeAndre Hopkins, Artavis Scott, Mike Williams, Tee Higgins, Amari Rodgers) in 16 of those 19 seasons. In 2021, three of his protégés (Williams, Higgins and Hunter Renfrow) recorded 1,000-yard seasons in the NFL, while another (Chansi Stuckey) served as wide receivers coach at Big 12 champion Baylor before accepting the wide receivers coach job at Notre Dame for 2022. The Alabama native has a reputation as one of the top recruiters in the nation. In 2006, he was listed as the No. 5 recruiter in the nation by Rivals. He signed 38 players in his five recruiting seasons as an assistant coach and was a major reason Clemson's 2008 recruiting class was rated No. 2 in the nation by ESPN when he signed 11 players. Clemson's 2020 class finished as a consensus Top 3 class, earning the top ranking from ESPN, a No. 2 rank by Rivals and a No. 3 ranking in the 247 Composite.  When Swinney accepted the interim head coaching position at Clemson on Oct. 13, 2008, he described his feelings as “bittersweet,” because he was taking over for Bowden, who had been his first position coach at Alabama in the 1989 season. He had also brought Swinney back to the coaching profession in 2003 and has had a profound effect on his life. Both had followed similar paths as players, as Bowden was a walk-on at West Virginia and Swinney was a walk-on at Alabama. Swinney received a commerce & business administration degree from Alabama in 1993 after lettering three times (1990-92). A walk-on who went on to earn a scholarship, Swinney was a wide receiver on Alabama's 1992 national championship team. He was also named Academic All-SEC along with being an SEC Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll member in 1990 and 1992. Along with his appearance in the 1993 Sugar Bowl, his Alabama teams played in the 1990 Sugar Bowl, 1991 Fiesta Bowl and 1991 Blockbuster Bowl. Both Sugar Bowl appearances came after winning the SEC title game. After his playing career, he was a graduate assistant at Alabama from 1993-95. He received a master's degree in business administration from Alabama in 1995.

3-Star offensive tackle Tommy “Bruno” Kinsler has committed to the MIami Hurricanes after recently de-committing from the University of Florida. Kinsler cited the trust he has in Miami OL coach Alex Mirabal and head coach Mario Cristobal for his decision. Kinsler is very well coached at Trinity Catholic in Ocala. His OL coach Aaron Johnson has already added Miami techniques into Bruno's training regimen in order to prepare him for The U.  Host Alex Donno breaks down the Kinsler commitment and how he will fit in to Miami's offensive line while he arrives. Plus, Donno shares what he expects from Miami's big recruiting “cookout” even this weekend which will see some big names in the classes of 2023, 2024 and even 2025 in attendance. Oregon commit, 5-star WR Jurrion Dickey, is expected to attend. Could the Hurricanes manage to flip him from Oregon to Miami? 5-star DE Samuel M'Pemba from IMG Academy has confirmed that he will be attending the cookout.  Donno shares votes from our listeners on twitter @LockedOnCanes as to who we expect to be 1st team All-ACC once the 2022 season is over? We can all agree that safety James Williams will likely be a first teamer, and Donno makes a case for quarterback Tyler Van Dyke, TE Elijah Arroyo and others. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Happy Friday and welcome in to Noles News Now, your audio home for all things Florida State sports here on the Tomahawk Nation podcast network. I'm Brian Pellerin, your host to lead you into the weekend... a rather uneventful weekend in terms of games I might add as we slowly build our way back toward the fall sports season. The most notable of those is of course football, which is about two months away now, but we are in the middle of preseason all-American season and we had a few Noles land on the Phil Steele magazine All-American team as well as a few others on the All-ACC teams on Thursday. Your second-team all-American according to them is DB Jammie Robinson. Jammie also grabbed first team all ACC. The others named to their All-ACC teams are Alex Mastromanno on the second team, as well as Dillan Gibbons, Mycah Pittman, Robert Cooper, and Camren McDonald on the third team. On campus this weekend, the biggest competition will be in recruiting as four-star linebacker Blake Nichelson should be arriving for his official visit today. They'll look to keep the moment rolling from the commitment they scooped up earlier this week from a late 2022 defensive lineman. Elsewhere in the ACC, a tough blow for Boston College as their best offensive lineman will likely miss the entire season following an ACL tear. Star guard Christian Mahogany is considered one of the top prospects for the next NFL Draft so that's a tough blow for B-C. He'll surely be tough to replace this season. Noles host the Eagles on September 24. The NCAA is still working to catch up to the quickly changing landscape of their sports as they are apparently recommending some guidelines to the transfer portal. That includes recommending a transfer window process, which basically gives athletes certain times of the year to enter the portal instead of being free agents able to bounce around at any time. They're also recommending an expedited process to punish teams that commit infractions. Right now, that process drags for years. That is certainly not a sustainable model in this day and age where you can use the portal to retool a roster in one season. Those recommendations will go before the board later this month. The actual vote could come as early as August. That is all according to ESPN's Heather Dinnich. Quicker infractions and punishments could be a big problem for Miami and their mega booster John Ruiz. The self-proclaimed billionaire cutting the program's NIL deals met with the NCAA to discuss those payments. Ruiz told CBS Sports that he took the meeting voluntarily and that it was nothing to be concerned about if you're a Canes fan, but certainly not a good look to be the first school under the microscope given their history we'll see where that leads. Never too early to look into the future at some other upcoming seasons. That includes the FSU hoops team that has their roster ready to rock for their winter season. The hoops-dedicated podcast crew looked at the group suiting up for the New Bloods this year to get your expectations set for Leonard Hamilton's boys. And if you're already missing softball season, Gwyn Rhodes continued her fantastic coverage of that program and dropped the first of her meet the team series looking at the Super Seniors for 2023.

Athlon Sports has released their annual preseason All Conference teams. Miami has 12 players make the 4 All ACC teams, highlighted by OT Zion Nelson and punter Lou Hedley. RB Jaylan Knighton, TE Will Mallory, OL DJ Scaife, CB Tyrique Stevenson and kicker Andres Borregales made the second team. The 3rd team features WR Key'Shawn Smith and DT Leonard Taylor. QB Tyler Van Dyke, DT Jared Harrison-Hunte and safety James Williams snuck in to the 4th team. Host Alex Donno takes a look at the quarterback landscape and makes the case for why the publication didn't necessarily get it wrong when they ranked all 3 of Sam Hartman (WF), Devin Leary (NCST) and Brennan Armstrong (UVA) ahead of TVD. He examines the merits and numbers of all four, but expects Van Dyke to ascend above most, if not all of them, by the end of the season. Donno takes a deep dive on a dozen recruiting prospects who have either visited the University of Miami this past weekend or named the Miami Hurricanes as finalists for their upcoming verbal commitment. It's a big list, a star-studded list, and we hope Miami can land a handful of these players to stack their deck for a college football playoff run in the near future.

When people talk about Canadian basketball players, they usually think of Steve Nash and Andrew Wiggins first. But there's a new breed of ballers from the Great White North, and Tyler Ennis is one of the best. His father, Tony, is a legendary coach who basically invented AAU-style travel ball north of the border. Tyler's parents moved the family south to St. Benedict's Preparatory School in Newark, New Jersey so that their son would have a better chance of landing a Division 1 college scholarship. As a standout guard, the five-star recruit did just that, getting a full ride to play at Syracuse. In his first season balling for the Orange, Tyler earned All-ACC second team, All-ACC Freshmen Team, and All-ACC Defensive Team honors. On February 28, 2014, Ennis was named one of the ten semi-finalists for the Naismith College Player of the Year, and proceeded to lead the Orange past Western Michigan in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Tyler's decision to then go pro was validated when he was selected with the 18th overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft by the Phoenix Suns. After spending time on the roster and in the D League, Tyler was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks, and later played for the Houston Rockets and LA Lakers, before taking his talents to Turkey. In this episode, Tyler riffs on: What being in “Night School” with a young Giannis Antetokounmpo taught him How Jason Kidd showed him what it means to be a floor generalWhy playing overseas has added to his gameHow he's keeping the faith after battling back from a leg fracture and achilles tendon ruptureWhat young players should know about the hard path to college and the LeagueKeep up with Tyler's basketball journey on his Instagram feed and on Twitter HERE This episode is brought to you by:Stria Sport: https://striasport.comWeartesters: https://weartesters.com

Happy hump day ladies and gentlemen — this is Noles News Now presented by Tomahawk Nation, covering the latest in FSU athletics.  Let's dive in with some recruiting news off the top — yesterday, the Seminoles extended offers to a pair of 2023 quarterbacks — four-star Ricky Collins out of Louisiana (currently committed to the Purdue Boilermakers) and three-star Brock Glenn out of Memphis. Each hold more than a few Power 5 offers, showing that the Seminoles aren't just content taking a single QB in this year's class. Currently, four-star Chris Parson is the only quarterback committed — he's been locked in with the Seminoles for nearly a year now, becoming a bellcow of the class while continuing to expand his game. He had a good showing at the Elite 11 Regional in mid-May, showcasing why he's considered the No. 16 quarterback in the country by 247. So why the offers? While the staff is high on Parson, putting all their eggs in one basket isn't their goal — FSU took one quarterback in 2022, AJ Duffy, while failing to land a high school prospect in 2021 after the flip of Luke Altmyer to Ole Miss. With just three scholarship QBs currently on roster, it's imperative for the staff to start building depth and competition at the position. In baseball news, Parker Messick,has been named a semifinalist for two National Player of the Year awards — the Dick Howser Trophy and the Golden Spikes Award after being named a first-team All-ACC pitcher, leading the league in strikeouts, strikeouts per nine innings, strikeout-to-walk ratio, and WHIP. Meanwhile, the No. 9 seed Seminoles kick off ACC Tournament play today vs. Virginia, with a second matchup vs. Notre Dame set for Thursday. Bryce Hubbart will be today's starting pitcher, with Messick handling primary duties on Thursday. The Cavalier offense is led by third baseman Jake Gelof and left fielder Alex Tappen. The first team All-ACC duo are second in the nation in combined RBIS at 144. Brian Gursky is the ace on the mound with a 7-1 record overall with 78 strikeouts on the season. In the ACC tournament, FSU holds a 9-8 record over UVA. Overall, the Seminoles are 59-31 all-time against the Cavs. Friday's game will be a chance for the Seminoles to get revenge for a weekend sweep at the hands of Notre Dame in Tallahassee earlier this season. The Irish are also coming off a regular season-ending series loss (Miami). Notre Dame's top three starters all boast an ERA under 3.00, led by John Bertrand. FSU will most likely face either Bertrand or Austin Temple in their Thursday matchup. On the offensive side, the Irish have a balanced attack led by Brooks Coetzee and Jack Zyska. If Florida State wins their pool, they will face the winner of Pool A on Saturday. The championship game will be played on Sunday afternoon. Florida State women's golf's longest ever run in the NCAA Championship tournament came to an end Tuesday — the Seminoles fell to Texas A&M in the quarterfinals of match play at the championship finals. The Seminoles advanced to match play for the first time in school history and finished in a tie for fifth place in the final national standings – the highest NCAA Championship finish in school history. Florida State women's tennis athletes Petra Hule and Anna Arkadianou bowed out of the NCAA Doubles Championship on Tuesday night, falling to Janice Tjen and Savannah Broadus of Pepperdine. Hule finishes her FSU career with 202 career wins in singles and doubles play combined, including a record-tying 106 wins in doubles play. Arkadianou, just a sophomore, has a chance to anchor next year's team as she gained valuable experience on FSU's No. 1 doubles tandem while being a No. 2/3 player in singles play.

Amy Deem, who has spent the previous 31 seasons coaching the Hurricanes, is the Director of Track and Field/Cross Country at the University of Miami. Deem was promoted to her current position in 2008 after serving as the head women's coach since June 1990. At the time of her promotion, she became just the sixth woman to oversee both the men's and women's track and cross country programs at a Division I school. In her 29th year with the Canes, Deem coached the women's team to a second-place finish in the ACC indoor Championships, featuring Debbie Ajagbe who won both the women's weight throw and shot put to earn ACC Field MVP honors. It's the second time in two years Miami earned the award. Freshman Jacious Sears earned 14 points for the Canes in her first ever conference meet finishing second in the 60 and third in the 200. The Canes sent three women to the 60m finals, and three to the shot put finals, which scored 21 points. Deem coached Miami's 17th national track and field champion as Michelle Atherley claimed the NCAA Indoor Pentathlon title with a program record and ACC record point total at 4,547. Miami earned its fourth title in four years at the ACC Indoor Championships, with the likes of Brittny Ellis, Kayla Johnson, Debbie Ajagbe, Selina Dantzler, Tiara McMinn and the 4×400 all taking the podium. Atherely was also named ACC Field MVP of the Indoor Championships. Later in the season, Atherley went on to defend her outdoor ACC heptathlon title and finished third at Nationals in the event. Debbie Ajagbe, Tiara McMinn, the 4×400, Kevin Arreaga, Raheem Chambers, Samantha Gonzalez all made their way to Nationals for the outdoor season to close out yet another successful track campaign under Deem. Deem guided a youthful team to the 2018 ACC Women's Outdoor Championship, Miami's first since 2006. This was the third conference title in three years after claiming the Indoor Championship in both 2016 and 2017. She was named the 2018 ACC Women's Outdoor Track and Field Coach of the year for the third time, her seventh overall ACC coaching honor. Under Deem's guidance, Symone Mason was named the 2018 ACC Women's Track MVP, while Michelle Atherley was named the ACC Women's Field MVP for 2018. The pair won six of Miami's seven individual events conference titles at the 2018 ACC Outdoor Championships. Miami totaled 11 total medals at the Outdoor Championships: seven gold, one silver and three bronze. The Canes also picked up 21 All-ACC awards, including 17 spots on the All-ACC first team and saw eight Canes make their way to the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships. The Canes women were ranked as high as No. 15 nationally during the season and earned nine USTFCCCA All-American honors. The Indoor season also produced 12 different student-athletes earning 13 All-ACC honors. Atherley finished sixth at the NCAA Indoor Championship in the pentathlon and was named a first team All American.  The indoor season saw Kayla Johnson break the Top 5 list in UM history in both the 600 meters and 800 meters, while Anne den Otter broke Latrice Shaw's 1000m time set in 1998. Amy Taintor finished her final season with the Canes' third-best Pentathlon finish with 3,967 points. The 2016 track and field season was monumental in Hurricanes history, as the Miami women won their third ACC Indoor Championship. Deem was named ACC Coach of the Year and USTFCCCA Regional Coach of the Year for the 2016 indoor season. The Canes had six women qualify for the 2016 NCAA Indoor Championships, with Alysha Newman and Dakota Dailey-Harris earning First Team All-America honors and four other Canes being named to the second team. Shakima Wimbley was named ACC Women's Indoor Track Most Outstanding Performer after winning the 200m, 400m and 4x400m at the ACC Indoor Championships. Dailey-Harris was one of several ACC Champions during the indoor season, winning the high jump title. She was joined by Wimbley (200m and 400m) and the 4x400m relay team of Wimbley, Aiyanna Stiverne, Brittny Ellis and Destiny Washington. There was more success outdoors for Miami's women, as they finished second at the ACC Outdoor Championships, securing a top three finish for the third consecutive year. Wimbley was named ACC Women's Outdoor Track MVP after winning the 200m, 400m, 4x100m and 4x400m conference titles. She was joined by Stiverne, Ebony Morrison and Carolyn Brown on the 4x100m, and Stiverne, Washington and Ellis on the 4x400m. Newman was the ACC women's pole vault champion for the 2016 outdoor season. Fourteen women qualified for the NCAA East Preliminary, with 11 advancing to the NCAA Outdoor Championships. Newman was the national runner-up in the pole vault, while Wimbley finished third in the 400m. The women's 4x400m relay placed seventh to round out Miami's First Team All-America performers. Miami earned three First Team All-America honors, four Second Team All-America honors and one All-America honorable mention after its performance at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. Miami's men also had a stellar 2016 season, scoring the most points at both the ACC Indoor and Outdoor Championships since joining the conference in 2004-05. Freshman Andreas Christodoulou won the men's decathlon at the ACC Outdoor Championships. Carlos Mangum qualified for the NCAA Indoor Championships in the weight throw. The ACC runner-up in the weight throw placed 14th, earning Second Team All-America honors. The Hurricanes had three men qualify for the NCAA Outdoor Championships: Isaiah Simmons and Gian Piero Ragonesi in the shot put and John-Patrick Friday in the triple jump. Ragonesi and Friday earned Second Team All-America honors. Six men competed at the NCAA East Preliminary: Simmons, Ragonesi, Friday, Mangum, Jaalen Jones and Henri Delauze. In 2015, Deem's Hurricanes thrived as Miami had 19 student-athletes competed at the NCAA East Preliminary and 11 advanced to the NCAA Outdoor Championships, while seven Canes qualified for the NCAA Indoor Championships. In recognition of Miami's success in 2015, Deem was named the USTFCCCA South Region Women's Head Coach of the Year. The Hurricane women had an impressive showing in 2015, led by two-time First Team Outdoor All-American Shakima Wimbley. The sophomore, who ran the fastest 400m time in the NCAA in 2015, was named USTFCCCA South Region Women's Track Athlete of the Year. Wimbley also earned First Team All-America honors with the 4x400m relay. Wimbley was named the ACC Women's Outdoor Track MVP after an outstanding showing at the ACC Championships. The sophomore won the 200m and 400m individual titles and set ACC records in both events, while helping the 4x400m relay place third. The stellar sophomore also was a star during the indoor season, qualifying for nationals in the 400m and as a member of the 4x400m relay. She also set an ACC Championship records in the 200m, running a time of 23.08 seconds to win gold. Hurdler Kelsey Balkwill also qualified for the NCAA Outdoor Championships, placing ninth in the women's 400m hurdles to earn Second Team All-America honors. Pole vaulter Alysha Newman, thrower Precious Ogunleye and the women's 4x400m relay rounded out Miami's competitors at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. The women's team also had a stellar showing at the ACC Outdoor Championships, placing third with 93 points. In addition to Wimbley's outstanding showing at the conference meet, Precious Ogunleye earned an ACC title in the women's hammer. On the men's side, Artie Burns and Christian Cook qualified for the NCAA Outdoor Championships in the 110m hurdles, while John-Patrick Friday represented Miami in the triple jump. Cook ran a personal-best 13.78 at the NCAA Outdoor Championships and was the ACC Indoor Champion in the men's 60m hurdles, earning First Team All-ACC honors. Burns earned a silver medal at the ACC Outdoor Championships in the men's 110m hurdles, running a time of 13.70 seconds that ranks third in school history. The standout hurdler earned First Team All-ACC honors, while Cook was named to the second team after placing fourth in the 110m hurdles and scoring in the 400m hurdles. Sprinters Henri Delauze, Jaalen Jones and Josh Johnson all scored at the ACC Indoor Championships, while the men's 4x400m relay scored at both the indoor and outdoor conference meets. The men's 4x100m relay of Burns, Cook, Johnson and Robert Grant earned a bronze medal at the ACC Outdoor Championships. The 2014 season was filled with success for the Canes as Miami had 20 student-athletes compete at the NCAA East Preliminary and 10 advance to the NCAA Outdoor Championships, while five Hurricanes represented UM at the NCAA Indoor Championships. The Canes won six ACC outdoor individual titles and picked up another six individual championships at the ACC Indoor Championships. Ten student-athletes earned All-ACC honors in 13 outdoor events, while 11 were named All-ACC during the indoor season. Alysha Newman was a two-time All-America, first team honoree. The pole vaulter earned her spot among the best in the country after finishing fifth at the NCAA Indoor Championships and seventh at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. Other notable performers in 2014 include Shakima Wimbley, who was named the ACC Freshman of the Year for both the indoor and outdoor seasons, and Isaiah Simmons, who claimed his second straight Field MVP at the ACC Outdoor Championships. In 2013, Miami had 13 different student-athletes qualify for the 2013 NCAA Division I Men's and Women's Outdoor Track and Field Preliminary Championships. On the women's side, Samantha Williams (triple jump) and Amber Monroe (discus) qualified for the NCAA East Preliminary for the second consecutive year. Alyssa McClure (100m), Alaine Tate (800m), Taneisha Cordell (800m), Lea Johnson (hammer) and the women's 4×100 relay team of McClure, Jokira Jiles, Jasmyne King and Kelsey Balkwill also qualified for the NCAA East Preliminary. The men had four student-athletes qualify in six events. Isaiah Simmons (shot put and discus), Christian Cook (110m hurdles and 400m hurdles), Timothy Richardson (long jump) and John-Patrick Friday (triple jump) combined to form the largest group of males to qualify for an NCAA Regional in program history. Prior to the 2013 track and field season, Deem helped guide the women's track and field team to one of the most dominating performances in USA Olympic track and field history. The team won 14 medals, including six gold, four silver and four bronze. Overall, she was part of Team USA who won more medals and gold medals than any other nation at the Games. Three of her former athletes – Murielle Ahoure, T'erea Brown and Lauryn Williams – competed in the Games. Ahoure (100m, 200m) and Brown (400m hurdles) reached the finals of their events, while Williams earned gold as part of the 4x100m relay pool. In June 2012, Thandi Stewart (400m hurdles) and Samantha Williams (triple jump) both earned All-America status at the NCAA Championships under the direction of the veteran mentor. It was the 21st season in a row in which one of her student-athletes received All-America honors. Deem, elected to the UM Sports Hall of Fame in 2006, has been responsible for building the women's track and field program from very modest beginnings into an NCAA powerhouse. Prior to her being named head coach in 1990, the Hurricanes had never had an athlete record an NCAA qualifying mark. Since then, Deem has guided 57 student-athletes to a combined 173 First Team All-America honors and 14 national championships. Behind Deem, Miami proved its national dominance in the hurdle events in 2010. At the NCAA Outdoor National Championships the Hurricanes became the first program in history to have three women compete in a 400m hurdle championship race. T'erea Brown placed second, while twin sisters Tameka and Takecia Jameson placed third and eighth, respectively. Each woman earned All-America accolades. As a team, the Miami women finished the championship in 11th-place – the highest result for UM since a seventh-place outcome in 2006. Brown earned a total of three All-America distinctions on the year – increasing her career total to five – with her runner-up performance in the 100m hurdles and a third-place showing in the 60m hurdles at the NCAA Indoor Championships. Brown also did something that no student-athlete had ever done at Miami. She became the first to win a U.S. Championship when she won the 400m hurdles in 54.84 seconds on June 27, 2010. Tameka Jameson also competed in the race – placing fifth. The 2009 track season brought a total of six individual All-America honors and an indoor national title. Sprinter Murielle Ahoure came to Miami for her senior season to train under Deem and was rewarded greatly for her decision. Under Deem, Ahoure raced to the Indoor 200-meter National Championships and earned All-America honors in the indoor 60-meter dash and the outdoor 100 and 200-meter dashes. In addition Ahoure broke UM legend, Lauryn Williams' indoor 60-meter dash record, was a four-time ACC Champion and earned the ACC's Indoor Track Performer of the Year Award. As in years past, the Hurricanes hurdlers had a stellar season under Deem's direction. Sophomores Takecia Jameson and T'erea Brown advanced to the finals of the 400-meter hurdles, with Brown crossing the finish line as the national runner-up. In her first season at the helm of the men's program in 2009, Deem saw Mikese Morse claim All-American status in the indoor long jump with his fifth-place finish at the national championships. Also, junior Cory Nelms (indoor 60-meter hurdles) was the first male track athlete to claim an ACC Title that wasn't named Tim Harris since Lance Leggett in the 400-meter hurdles in 2006. In 2008, Deem saw Krista Simkins win a NCAA National Title in the indoor 400-meters. Also, during the indoor season, Viktoria Andonova took home All-American honors as she tied for ninth in the high jump at the Indoor NCAA National Championships. During the outdoor season, freshmen hurdlers, Takecia Jameson and T'erea Brown finished third and eighth respectively to earn All-American accolades in the 400-meter hurdles. In July of 2008, Jameson ran for the United States in the Junior World Championships in Poland, where she claimed two world titles, in the 400-meter hurdles and the 4×100-relay. The Hurricanes have had at least one student-athlete earn All-America honors in each of her 21 seasons and are perennial contenders for conference championships and top-10 national finishes. In Miami's first two seasons in the ACC (2004-05 and 2005-06), Deem led the Hurricanes to consecutive indoor and outdoor conference titles. In addition, she was honored as the league's indoor and outdoor Coach of the Year both seasons. Miami finished tied for fifth at the 2006 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships marking the program's second consecutive top five finish while the team placed seventh at the NCAA Outdoor Championships marking the highest outdoor finish in school history. The 2005 season saw Miami reach unprecedented heights. The Hurricanes finished a program-best third at the 2005 NCAA Indoor Championships, which included a school-record 12 All-America honors. Miami finished ninth at the 2005 NCAA Outdoor Championships, also the highest finish at the time in school history, notching another 14 All-America honors. The Hurricanes placed second at the 2005 NCAA East Regional Championships marking the highest finish and most points scored (81) in the program's history. In 2004, the Hurricanes concluded their final season of BIG EAST competition by posting one of the best seasons in school history. Miami recorded 17 All-America honors, won both the BIG EAST Indoor and Outdoor Championships for the second consecutive season, including the school's sixth BIG EAST Outdoor Championship, and placed 10th at both the NCAA Indoor Championships and NCAA Outdoor Championships. That season, Miami recorded 12 All-America honors at the NCAA Outdoor Championships including Lauryn Williams' NCAA National Championship in the 100-meters. Williams posted a winning time of 10.97 seconds, the fifth-fastest time in NCAA history. In three seasons under Deem, Williams developed into one the top sprinters in the world. For most of 2004, Williams had the top time in the world in both the 100-meter and 200-meters. She went on to win a silver medal in the 100-meters at the Olympic Games in Athens, and at just 20 years of age became the youngest sprinter in 32 years to medal in the event. Williams competed in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and continues to train under Deem. In 2005 Williams captured the gold medal in the 100-meters and also anchored the USA 4×100-meter relay to the gold medal at the IAAF World Championships in Helsinki, Finland. During Deem's tenure the Hurricanes developed into the premier track and field program in the BIG EAST winning a combined 79 BIG EAST individual and relay titles. Miami's team title at the 2004 BIG EAST Outdoor Championship marked the fourth consecutive for Deem's Hurricanes making UM the only program in BIG EAST history to win four straight outdoor team titles. Under Deem the Hurricanes have become a fixture at the NCAA Championships scoring at 14 of 15 NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field Championships since 1992. Both in the state of Florida and around the nation Deem is recognized as one of the best developers of talent in the coaching ranks. Deem, who served as President of the United States Track Coaches Association from 2003-05, has won numerous coaching awards and been appointed to various national coaching positions. In 2007, she served as the Head Coach of the United States team at the World Championships in Osaka, Japan where the Americans won the 4×100 and 4×400-meter relays Deem has been honored four times as the USTCA South District Coach of the Year (2001, 2002, 2004, 2005), and in 1998 was named the USA Track and Field Florida Coach of the Year. In 2002 she was honored as the United States Olympic Committee Developmental Coach of the Year for Track and Field. In addition, Deem served three seasons (1998-2000) as the Event Coordinator for Sprints and Hurdles for the USA Track and Field Coaches Education Program, and in 2001 served as head coach of the USATF Junior National team that competed in England and Scotland. In the summer of 2003, Deem served as the Explosive Events Coach (sprints and hurdles) for the United States at the Pan American games in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic guiding Lauryn Williams to the gold medal in the 100-meters. In addition the United States swept the gold medals in the 4×100-meter relay and 4×400-meter relay for the first time since 1987. In 2002 Deem guided Williams to the gold medal at the World Junior Championships in Kingston, Jamaica. In addition to Williams, Deem has coached numerous other top sprinters and hurdlers including five-time NCAA Champion Gillian Russell, 1999 NCAA Champion Yolanda McCray, two-time Olympian Patrina Allen, and Debbie Ferguson, a two-time Olympic medalist. Russell, who competed for the Hurricanes from 1992-95, won the NCAA National Indoor title in the 55-meter hurdles in 1992 and 1995, as well as the NCAA 100-meter hurdle championship in 1993, 1994 and 1995. Russell is a two-time Olympian having competed for Jamaica in 1992 and 1996. Russell was ranked among the World's top-10 in the 100-meter hurdles from 1995-1998 reaching a career-best ranking of sixth in 1998. McCray, a six-time All-American, won the 100-meter hurdles at the 1999 NCAA Championship and, in 1997 and in 1999 was ranked as high as sixth in the United States in the event. Allen, a teammate of McCray, was also a six-time All-American. She competed for Jamaica at the 2000 and 2004 Olympic Games in the 400-meter hurdles. In 2002, Deem began coaching Bahamian sprinter Debbie Ferguson. Ferguson went on to post one of the best seasons of her career winning gold medals in the 100-meters, 200-meters and 4×100-meter relay at the 2002 Commonwealth Games, setting meet records in all three events. She went on to win championships in the 200-meters and 4×100-meter relay at the 2002 World Cup, and ended the season ranked second in the world in the 200-meters and fifth in the world in the 100-meters. At the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Ferguson captured the bronze medal in the 200-meters and reached the final of the 100-meters where she placed seventh. She competed in the 200-meter event at the 2008 Olympics and again be coached by Deem. Originally from Parkersburg, West Virginia, Deem first came to Miami in 1988 as an intern in the Compliance Department to complete her degree at Ohio University. While fulfilling her internship she simultaneously served as assistant track coach. In what could be termed as perfect timing, in the Spring of 1990, Deem decided to stay in the Miami area and the head women's track coach position opened up. Deem, who is a Level III coach and instructor as certified by USA Track and Field, was hired as the head women's track coach on June 26, 1990.

My name is Sean Tubbs, and this is another installment of Charlottesville Community Engagement, a newsletter and podcast that seeks to provide information about all manner of items in local and regional government in and around Charlottesville. Charlottesville Community Engagement is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.On today’s program:Charlottesville City Council learns of an even higher surplus than expected for the current fiscal yearVirginia is set to end its rent relief program in mid-MayA Colorado educator will become the next president of Piedmont Virginia community College A series of speakers wants Charlottesville Area Transit’s Route 6 to continue to stop at the doorstep of Crescent HallsAnd former UVA basketball star Sean Singletary enters the development community in Charlottesville First shout-out goes to the Piedmont Master Gardeners for their annual plant saleIn today’s first subscriber-supported shout-out, the Piedmont Master Gardeners are pleased to announce the return of their annual plant sale! That’s happening on Saturday, May 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Albemarle Square Shopping Center. The sale will offer thousands of annuals, perennials, shrubs, vegetables, herbs and houseplants, including a large selection of native plants.In addition, shoppers can purchase garden implements, yard ornaments and other “Green Elephants”; have their tools sharpened by an expert; and drop off their surplus plastic nursery pots for recycling. The sale will also feature a Help Desk for gardening questions and information tables on native plants, soil and composting, invasive plants, conservation landscaping and much more.For more information, visit piedmontmastegardeners.org. Before we begin today, a quick program note. This show is a product of the pandemic. For the past two years, I’ve been producing informational podcasts to help people know what’s going on. I became a journalist almost 30 years ago because bringing people information is what I’ve always wanted to do. At no point do I want to tell you what to think. And for the past two years, I’ve more or less  been able to do this all from home. And for a lot of that time, most of you were at home too. Now that Albemarle and Charlottesville have both gone back to in-person meetings, it’s a bit jarring. I’m not used to it yet and I still have one eye on COVID cases to see what’s going on. Tomorrow’s show will contain an update from the UVA Health System.But I know I’m not alone. At Monday’s first in-person meeting in 25 months, Charlottesville Mayor Lloyd Snook had a similar sense of disorientation when a resident of Crescent Halls came up to speak. “You’re Miss Sandridge… I know what you look like without a mask on a Zoom call but I don’t know what you look like face to face,” Snook said. We’ll hear more from Judy Sandridge later in the show, but I wanted to begin today by acknowledging the past two years and how they were very different from any other time in my career. I’ve gotten used to writing from home. Soon I’ll be back out there doing more, but it’s still an end to an era. The writer Addison Del Mastro has a piece on his Substack Deleted Scenes called Final Pandemic Thoughts which I think is worth a read. That’s not really within the scope of Charlottesville Community Engagement, nor is this whole first segment. But I am curious to know what your thoughts are on where we’ve been the last two years, and what you’d like to see going forward. As for me, I hope to continue bringing you this program.Council gets revenue update Even though Council has recently adopted a budget for the fiscal year that begins on July 1, there is never a time when the city’s finances are not in the public eye. Interim City Manager Michael C. Rogers briefed Council this week on the state of revenue collection for the current fiscal year that ends on June 30. “So far this year we have currently collected 66.93 percent of our budgeted revenue and we remain on track to collect more than the adopted revenue budget of $192,212,843,” Rogers said. The next tax bills are due on June 6 and will include the one cent real estate tax increase adopted by Council earlier this month. Tax rates go with the calendar year, not the fiscal year. That means a budget surplus is almost certain. “While we discussed during the budget process that we would end up with $12 million more, what I’m seeing now based on that revision, it’s $13 million,” Rogers said.Final decisions about how to use that funding will be made by Council later this year after the FY22 books are audited. Runyon named as PVCC’s next presidentThe chancellor of Virginia’s Community College System has named a Colorado educator as the next president of Piedmont Virginia Community College. Dr. Jean Runyon is currently the campus vice president at Front Range Community College in Larimer. . “We are excited to welcome Dr. Runyon to PVCC and believe she will be able to build upon the success and great potential that exists here, not just at the College but throughout the community,” said PVCC College Board Chair Lola Richardson in a statement. Runyon will be PVCC’s sixth president since it was founded in 1972. She’ll succeed Frank Friedman in the position he has held since November 1998. The new president has a long history in higher education with positions such as the director of the Innovative Teaching Center at the College of Southern Maryland and eight years in various positions at Anne Arundel Community College in Maryland. She’ll take the reins at PVCC in July. Virginia rent relief program is set to end In another sign that the pandemic era is over, the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development is closing an online portal through which people can apply for rent relief. Virginians have until midnight on May 15 to make a new application. Virginia was one of the first states in the nation to put a mortgage and rent relief program in place soon after the federal Coronavirus, Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES). The program went live in June 2020 and has provided more than $713 million in relief for 104,990 households across the Commonwealth. To be eligible, households need to have an income less than 50 percent of the area median or have to have had one member out of work for up to 90 days. “DHCD will continue to work with partners and stakeholders across the state to create comprehensive strategies to increase the supply of affordable housing, address and prevent evictions and reduce barriers in housing throughout the Commonwealth,” reads a notice on the agency’s website. For more information, visit the DHCD’s website.Today’s second shout-out goes to WTJUAlgorithms know how to put songs and artists together based on genre or beats per minute.

Charlottesville and UVA have done so much for me.” A preliminary site plan has been filed with the city of Charlottesville to build several townhomes in the Little High subsection of the Martha Jefferson neighborhood at the intersection of East Market and 11th Street. In all, 11th Street Partners seeks to consolidate four lots into one before building ten townhomes. Several existing structures on those properties would be removed, but a house at 1103 East Market Street would remain as it is not part of this project and is owned separately. As part of this plan, the house at 1101 East Market Street would be replaced with a new structure.  “We determined that the most beneficial to the community would be to demolish these existing structures and replace them with very attractive units that we think are going to add a significant benefit to the community at large,” said engineer Eric Woolley.One of these would be a sidewalk on this stretch of East Market where there currently is not one on the northern side of the road. Utilities would be placed underground. Each townhouse would have three bedrooms and three off-street parking spaces. “The way we’ve oriented the units, we think it’s going to be beneficial to the neighborhood by actually providing more parking within the development which alleviates the pressure of overlap parking to other neighbors,” Woolley said. While the application for the Vue at East Market is by-right and would not require a decision by elected officials, a request to close off a public right of way does.“The alley closure piece does have discretionary review by City Council but the other components would not,” said Carrie Rainey, a city planner. One of Singletary’s three partners is Keith Payne, an All-ACC conference running back on the UVA football team. “This is extremely exciting for our team to be able to develop in Charlottesville, especially downtown in a great neighborhood,” Payne said. Payne said he and Singletary graduated together, and have always been looking for an opportunity to develop in Charlottesville. “Being on the corner there, we felt this could be a vibrant site for the city,” Payne said. The team wants to develop other projects in the community. No one spoke at the community meeting on Wednesday. To view the discussion, take a look at the video here. PHAR seeks to keep Crescent Halls bus stop in placeA series of speakers at Monday’s City Council meeting asked the elected officials to weigh in on a decision by Charlottesville Area Transit to relocate the bus stop at Crescent Halls, a public housing site that is currently undergoing renovations. The homes are currently served in both directions by Route 6 and the agency is making the change to help speed up the route. That had not been the plan, according to one resident. “We were told that they would pick up one side and when they come back they would let people off in front of the door,” said Alice Washington. “We need that. Crescent Halls is a senior and disability building.” As such, Washington said many residents use wheelchairs or walkers to get around and need to be able to board the bus. That will be much harder if they have to walk what she said were the 89 steps to the new stop. “If they got to walk from way over here over there and some of these people are almost 80 or 90 years old, it’s impossible,” Washington said. We briefly heard from Judy Sandridge earlier. Let’s hear her again. “If you see me hear with my cart here again, my oxygen, and a thing full with food trying to walk 89 steps?” Sandridge said. “She walked 89 steps. I can’t do that.” Other voices included Brandon Collins, the redevelopment coordinator of the Charlottesville Redevelopment and Housing Authority who said keeping the bus stop where it is has been a high priority during renovation discussions. Another was Shelby Edwards, who succeeded Collins as the main voice of the Public Housing Association of Residents in her capacity as executive director. “PHAR has hosted both private and public conversations with CAT about this topic,” Edwards said. “We don’t understand why this has been such a laborious task. We know that that CAT would like to move to the 30 minute service to increase ridership, but this means little if the people who switch over already have other forms of transportation. Yes, we do want a world where everyone can use mass transit but we first need one where everyone who has no other form of transit can continue to move around freely.”Council also heard directly from CRHA’s Executive Director, John Sales. “We need that bus stop in front of the building,” Sales said. Sales added that a site plan amendment to the Crescent Halls renovation would be required, which could delay the ability for residents to move back in. Sales also pointed out that the route change has not yet been finally approved by City Council. “So I just want to make sure that any other route changes that are going to be impacted by this 30 minute transition gets discussed because not only will Crescent Halls be impacted, but people all over the city are going to be impacted, without anyone knowing,” Sales said.In 2021, Charlottesville Area Transit worked with a consultant to realign the routes, but the changes have not yet been implemented. Under the new changes, Route 6 would no longer travel to the University of Virginia Health System but would stil travel between Willoughby Shopping Center and Downtown. The route would also no longer travel on Ridge Street via Brookwood Drive. No action was taken at the meeting, but this morning Deputy City Manager Sam Sanders and CAT Director Garland Williams offered the following statement:“The City Manager has asked staff to consider options regarding the bus stop service to residents of Crescent Halls, including the Paratransit service administered for the City by JAUNT.  There are multiple conversations in progress and a number of options are being considered but the iterative process of review, feedback, and costing is in full motion.  We will be convening all parties to review and determine workable options to present to Council as soon as possible.”The route changes have not yet been made because of a lack of drivers that would be required to provide the additional service.

An outstanding recruiter with unrivaled knowledge of the game and passion for teaching, the 2021-22 season marks the 25th illustrious year for Paige Yaroshuk-Tews with the University of Miami women's tennis team, including her 21st as head coach. The program's all-time winningest coach, Yaroshuk-Tews has turned the Hurricanes into a force nationally, leading Miami to the NCAA's Elite Eight in eight of the last 17 tournaments, the seventh-most quarterfinal appearances in the nation during that span. The Hurricanes have also made the Sweet 16 on 13 occasions during that stretch, one of eight programs to do so. In her 20 years at Miami, Yaroshuk-Tews boasts an overall record of 377-132 (.741) and an ACC career record of 155-44 (.779). As a result of her unparalleled achievements, Yaroshuk-Tews was inducted into the UM Sports Hall of Fame in 2012. Yaroshuk-Tews' desire to make Miami a national title contender on a yearly basis has helped the program consistently flourish with all-conference and All-American talent. The Hurricanes have not only made the NCAA Team Championship in each of her years as head coach–excluding 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic canceled the postseason–but have also won at least one NCAA match every season. UM qualified for the ITA National Team Indoor Championships 12 straight years, from 2005-16, and was ranked in the top 10 at some point during the season in each of those campaigns. Yaroshuk-Tews annually brings in some of the top prep talent, reloading year in and year out for a program consistently ranked among the nation's best. Since taking the head coaching position for the women's tennis program at Miami in 2001, Yaroshuk-Tews has led the Hurricanes on an unprecedented run in Coral Gables, Fla. In total, she has directed Miami to 13 Sweet 16 berths, eight Elite Eight trips and an appearance in the 2006 NCAA final, the program's first since 1985. Miami hosted the first and second rounds of the NCAA Team Championship 13 times under Yaroshuk-Tews, including 12 straight years each from 2005-2016. The Hurricanes have turned in 18 straight ITA top-25 finishes, including 13 in the top 15. In eight of the last 15 completed seasons, Miami has ended the year in the top 10. Individually, Yaroshuk-Tews has guided two players to NCAA Singles Championship crowns, as Audra Cohen won the hardware in 2007 and Estela Perez-Somarriba did so in 2019. Miami is one of just three schools with multiple NCAA singles titles in the past 14 tournaments, alongside Stanford and Virginia. Six Hurricanes have combined for nine semifinals berths during that stretch, with both totals the highest marks of any program since 2007. Sixteen different Hurricanes have garnered a total of 35 ITA All-American honors under Yaroshuk-Tews, the former a program record for a coach. In 17 of her 20 seasons, at least one Hurricane has been named an All-American, with multiple players receiving the honor in 10 of them. Under Yaroshuk-Tews' watch, 18 Hurricanes have combined for 38 All-ACC distinctions and 28 Miami players have totaled 50 Academic All-ACC recognitions. In addition, four Hurricanes have totaled six ACC Player of the Year plaudits and four have combined for six ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors. Most recently, the Hurricanes posted a 15-9 (8-5 ACC) mark in 2021, reaching the second round of the NCAA Team Championship and finishing No. 20 nationally. Miami earned two top-10 wins, knocking off eighth-ranked Virginia at home and sixth-ranked Florida State in the ACC Championship to reach the semifinals for the fifth consecutive time. Estela Perez-Somarriba posted a 24-3 singles mark on her way to reaching the NCAA Singles Championship title match for the second straight time and claiming ITA National Player of the Year honors as the nation's top-ranked player. She finished her illustrious career at 165-26, good for the second-most wins in ACC history, and also claimed ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year, ITA Senior Player of the Year and ITA Southeast Region Cissie Leary Sportsmanship Award. She and Isabella Pfennig, who ended the year ranked No. 26 nationally, both garnered ITA All-America and All-ACC status, with the latter winning ITA Southeast Region Rookie of the Year. Two Hurricane duos competed in the NCAA Doubles Championship, each finishing top-30 nationally. Miami notched a 6-4 (3-2 ACC) record during the 2020 campaign. The team did not play past February, as the season ended prematurely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All four of the Hurricanes' setbacks were against top-20 teams, including two in the top five, and the team also notched a top-20 road win. Estela Perez-Somarriba broke the program's career singles wins record, becoming Yaroshuk-Tews' fourth pupil to top the charts. The Madrid native, who won ITA Southeast Region Senior Player of the Year and ITA Southeast Region Arthur Ashe Sportsmanship & Leadership Award plaudits, also peaked at first nationally and held the second position when play ended. No ACC postseason accolades were awarded due to the pandemic, but Perez-Somarriba did win her fourth ITA All-America distinction. The Hurricanes logged a 19-8 ledger in 2019, finishing 9-5 in ACC action and falling one point shy of the NCAA Sweet 16. Miami posted five top-25 wins, including defeating ninth-ranked NC State, 4-2, to reach the ACC Championship semifinals for the sixth time in seven years and fourth in a row. Yaroshuk-Tews guided her team to the No. 20 spot in the final ITA rankings, the 15th top-20 finish in a 16-year period. Estela Perez-Somarriba won the NCAA Singles Championship title and went 43-5, claiming ACC Player of the Year, ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year, ITA All-America and ITA Southeast Region Arthur Ashe Sportsmanship & Leadership Award honors, while ending the season ranked second nationally. Freshman Daevenia Achong earned Second Team All-ACC accolades, as well as joined Perez-Somarriba and three other Hurricanes on the All-ACC Academic Team. Miami posted an 18-8 mark in 2018, including an 11-3 record in ACC play. After a one-year hiatus, the Hurricanes again hosted the opening two rounds of the NCAA Team Championship and advanced to the Sweet 16. Yaroshuk-Tews' team ended the season ranked No. 17 nationally, good for a 14th top-20 finish in a 15-year span. Estela Perez-Somarriba was named the ACC Player of the Year and the ITA National Player to Watch, finishing with ITA All-America accolades, First Team All-ACC distinction, a 39-8 record and the fifth spot in the final ITA rankings. Sinead Lohan, who finished her career with the fourth-most singles wins in school history (130), became Miami's third four-time All-ACC honoree and won the ITA Southeast Region Arthur Ashe Sportsmanship & Leadership Award. Despite dealing with significant injuries throughout the 2017 campaign, Yaroshuk-Tews oversaw the team's 22nd consecutive NCAA Team Championship berth and 21st winning season in a row. The Hurricanes finished 13-12, concluded the campaign ranked No. 25 nationally and reached the second round of NCAA play. Miami had two First Team All-ACC honorees for the second straight year, as Sinead Lohan and Estela Perez-Somarriba both garnered the recognition. Perez-Somarriba, an ITA All-American, became the first Hurricane freshman to reach the NCAA Singles Championship Final Four, giving Miami a semifinalist for the third season in a row. Yaroshuk-Tews, en route to ITA Southeast Region Coach of the Year distinction, guided Miami to a 21-6 record in 2016, the team's 11th 20-win season in a 13-year span. The Hurricanes went 12-2 in the ACC for the third year in a row, finishing in second place, and reached the ACC Championship final for the sixth time in 12 seasons in the ACC. Miami advanced to the Sweet 16 for the 11th year in a row and ended the campaign ranked No. 10 in the nation, its 13th straight top-15 finish and eighth top-10 finish in the last 11 years. Sinead Lohan, Stephanie Wagner and Wendy Zhang combined for a total of four ITA All-American distinctions. Wagner, the ITA Southeast Region Senior Player of the Year, broke the program's career wins record, finishing with 134. The All-American trio combined for six ACC Player of the Week honors, with Wagner winning four, the most by anyone since 2012, to conclude her career with eight. Lohan went 40-6 in singles, tied for the third-most wins in a season by a Miami player, and became the seventh different Hurricane to reach the NCAA Singles Championship Final Four, including the sixth under Yaroshuk-Tews. The Hurricanes went 18-7 in 2015 and finished second in the ACC at 12-2. Miami reached the Sweet 16 for the 10th year in a row and earned a 12th consecutive top-15 finish. The team also finished in the top four of the ACC for the 11th straight year, each one since it joined the conference. On an individual level, Yaroshuk-Tews guided both Sinead Lohan and Stephanie Wagner to ITA All-American honors. Both of them reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Singles Championship, marking the third time ever–all under the direction of Yarosuk-Tews–two Hurricanes did so the same year. Wagner was also named the ITA National Player to Watch. UM set a program record with five nationally-ranked singles players in the year-end rankings and tied the top mark set the previous season with six different players ranked in either singles or doubles. In 2014, Miami posted its sixth consecutive 20-win season and 10th in the last 11 years, finishing at 21-6, with a 12-2 mark in the ACC to tie for first place. The Hurricanes hosted the NCAA Team Championship first and second rounds for the 10th consecutive year and reached the NCAA round of 16 for the ninth straight time. Additionally, UM made the ITA National Team Indoor Championships for the 10th season in a row. Miami ended the year at No. 12 in the nation and two Hurricanes, Monique Albuquerque and Clementina Riobueno, earned ITA All-American recognition. Six different Hurricanes ended the season ranked in either singles or doubles, a new program record. The 2013 season saw Miami win its first ACC Championship title, as the Hurricanes knocked off a trio of top-30 teams in Cary, N.C., including second-ranked North Carolina in the semifinals. Miami went on to finish 23-6, marking the most wins for the program since 2009 and the third-most during Yaroshuk-Tews' tenure. The season also marked the fifth consecutive trip to the Elite Eight for the Hurricanes, then the longest streak in the country. UM concluded the year ranked eighth, its fifth straight top-10 finish, and Yaroshuk-Tews was named the ITA Southeast Region Coach of the Year, while her assistant coach, Alex Santos, was chosen as the ITA National Assistant Coach of the Year. During the 2012 season, the Hurricanes advanced to their fourth consecutive NCAA Team Championship Elite Eight, before falling to eventual national champion Florida. Miami played host to North Florida and Utah in the first two rounds of the tournament, winning both matches, 4-0. In the Sweet 16, the Hurricanes exacted revenge on ACC foe North Carolina, winning 4-2 to erase the memory of a 4-3 loss to the Tar Heels in the regular season. Miami wound up ninth in the final national rankings, and Anna Bartenstein was named an ITA All-American, making it nine straight seasons Yaroshuk-Tews coached a player who received the honor. In 2011, Yaroshuk-Tews led Miami on another deep run in the NCAA Team Championship, winning at home in the first two rounds before taking down Michigan in the round of 16 in Stanford, Calif. The Hurricanes finished the season ranked seventh nationally. Also in 2011, senior Bianca Eichkorn became the program's all-time winningest singles player (133 victories) en route to numerous All-America and all-conference honors. Among them, Eichkorn became the fourth UM player in the last seven seasons to be named ACC Player of the Year under Yaroshuk-Tews, who surpassed 200 career wins with Miami's NCAA-opening 4-0 victory May 13 against FIU. Anna Bartenstein was also named an ITA All-American in 2011, making it four straight years the Hurricanes had at least two players garner the accolade. In 2010, Yaroshuk-Tews led the Hurricanes to the NCAA quarterfinals, a No. 10 final ranking and a 20-6 record, UM's sixth 20-win season in the last seven years. Miami also posted a 10-1 mark in ACC play to finish in second place. For the second straight year–the first time that happened since 1985-86–three Hurricanes earned ITA All-America honors, this time Bianca Eichkorn, Gabriela Mejia and Laura Vallverdu, who also won the Honda Sports Award. Vallverdu was an All-American in singles and doubles, giving Miami four All-America honors for the first time since 1988. Additionally, Vallverdu set the program record for singles wins (131) and became the fourth four-year All-American in program history and the first under Yaroshuk-Tews. Eichkorn and Vallverdu both reached the NCAA Singles Championship quarterfinals, the second straight year two Hurricanes did so after it had not previously happened in program history. Vallverdu made the semifinals, to become the program's first two-time semifinalist. During the 2009 season, Yaroshuk-Tews claimed the ACC Coach of the Year award after leading UM to a 26-5 mark, its second-best record ever during the NCAA era (1982-present). The Hurricanes went 16-0 at home, captured the ACC regular season title at 10-1 and registered 12 consecutive victories leading into the ACC Championship final. Yaroshuk-Tews saw her team advance to the NCAA quarterfinals and concluded the season seventh in the country, its second best finish of the last 32 years. For the first time since 1988, three UM players were named ITA All-Americans, in Bianca Eichkorn, Julia Cohen and Laura Vallverdu. All three reached the NCAA Singles Championship round of 16, a first in school history. Cohen and Eichkorn became the first Hurricane duo to make the semifinals the same year, and Vallverdu finished as the second finalist in program history. In total, four Hurricanes played in the NCAA Singles Championship, marking the first time that happened, and four Miami duos were listed in the final ITA doubles rankings for the first time ever. In 2008, Miami finished with a 17-6 overall mark, snapping a string of four consecutive 20-win seasons. The Hurricanes faced 18 ranked opponents and went 12-6 against them. UM hosted the first two rounds of the NCAA Team Championship for the fourth straight year and reached a third consecutive Sweet 16. The Hurricanes' 6-1 win over No. 45 NC State April 12 gave Yaroshuk-Tews her 132nd victory to pass legendary Miami coach Ivan Duvenhage (1982-88) for the program record. Miami ended the season at No. 14 in the nation and Laura Vallverdu was named an ITA All-American. During the 2007 season, Yaroshuk-Tews led the Hurricanes to a 22-7 mark, the team's fourth straight 20-win season and to the NCAA quarterfinals for the second straight season. Miami went 17-1 at home, with the lone loss against eventual NCAA champion Georgia Tech. The Hurricanes finished the season ranked ninth in the nation, their second straight top-10 finish. Audra Cohen and Laura Vallverdu were both named ITA All-Americans, making it three straight years UM had multiple honorees for the first time since 1986-88. Cohen went 42-2 in singles, became the first player in program history win the national title in the NCAA Singles Championship and was also the first to win the Honda Sports Award. She also won her second consecutive ITA National Player of the Year Award and ACC Player of the Year award, making it three straight years a Hurricane earned both accolades. It marked just the second time ever a school had three straight ITA National Player of the Year winners on the women's side, and Cohen was fifth women to win the award in back-to-back years. Cohen ended the season at No. 1 in the nation for the second year in a row, marking the third straight time a UM player finished first, and she was selected to the ITA All-Star Team as well. Three Hurricanes made the NCAA Singles Championship for the third time ever, and first since 1985. Yaroshuk-Tews reached 100 wins with a 6-1 win over eighth-ranked Baylor Feb. 3, becoming the third coach in program history to get to triple digits. Her assistant coach, David Anderton, garnered the ITA National Assistant Coach of the Year award for his work with the team. The 2006 campaign was a special one for the Miami program, as the Hurricanes advanced to the final of the NCAA Team Championship for the first time since 1985 and the second time ever. UM upset second-ranked Notre Dame in the quarterfinals and third-ranked USC in the semifinals. The impressive run came to an end in the championship match against two-time defending champion and top-seeded Stanford. The Hurricanes finished the season at 24-7 and shared the ACC regular season title for the second straight year. Yaroshuk-Tews' squad came up with big wins against some of the nation's best teams, going 5-3 against top-10 teams, including a 4-2 mark against opponents ranked in the top three. The Hurricanes finished the season ranked fourth in the country, their first top-five finish since 1987 and the fourth-best record in program history during the NCAA era (1982-present). The same year, Melissa Applebaum and Audra Cohen were both named ITA All-Americans, making it back-to-back years the Hurricanes had a pair of honorees for the first time since the 1987-88 season. Cohen went 34-2 in singles and finished the season ranked No. 1 in the nation, the second straight year a Hurricane took the top spot. She was named the ITA National Player of the Year and ACC Player of the Year, making it back-to-back years a Hurricane won both awards, and she was nominated for the Honda Sports Award. Cohen and Applebaum ended the year ranked second nationally in doubles and made the quarterfinals of the NCAA Doubles Championship. Both of them were named to the ITA All-Star Team. Additionally, four Hurricanes made the year-end ITA rankings for the first time in 30 years. The team flourished in 2005 under Yaroshuk-Tews, earning a 21-5 overall record, marking its second consecutive 20-win season. Miami went 9-1 in Atlantic Coast Conference play in its inaugural season in the league to tie for first place and also reached the ACC Championship final. The Hurricanes made the USTA/ITA National Team Indoor Championships and upset fourth-ranked UCLA, 4-3. UM earned an automatic bid to host the first two rounds of the NCAA Team Championship and fell to California in the second round to snap a 27-match home winning streak. The Hurricanes finished at No. 13 in the nation and both Audrey Bañada and Megan Bradley were named ITA All-Americans, the first time Miami had multiple players earn the honor since 1992. The pair also reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Doubles Championship, the first Miami duo to do so since 1992. Bradley set a program record for singles wins with 44, finishing at 44-2 and winning 39 straight matches along the way. She won the ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships title, finished the season ranked first in the nation, made the ITA All-Star Team, and won ACC/UM Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year and ITA National Senior Player of the Year. Additionally, Bradley was the first Hurricane to win ITA National Player of the Year and the first to receive the ACC Player of the Year award. Her ITA national awards were the first by a Hurricane since 1991. In 2004, Yaroshuk-Tews led her team to yet another successful season and earned her second BIG EAST Coach of the Year award. The Hurricanes finished with a 20-4 overall record and were ranked 15th in the final poll, the team's highest ranking since 1991. Miami made the BIG EAST Championship final for the 13th straight year–every one it participated in as a conference member–and won its eighth title. Half the titles and seven of the finals appearances came with Yaroshuk-Tews on the coaching staff. The Hurricanes were part of one of the biggest upsets in collegiate tennis history in 2004. They beat previously undefeated and top-ranked ranked Florida, 4-3, in the second round of the NCAA Team Championship in Gainesville, Fla. Miami had not defeated the Gators since the 1986 season. The Hurricanes advanced to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1999 and defeated No. 11 Tulane, 4-1, to reach the Elite Eight for the first time since the 1986. Megan Bradley was named an ITA All-American, the first Hurricane to garner the honor since 1999, which was also the last time Miami won 20-plus matches. After the season, Yaroshuk-Tews was tabbed to coach the prestigious USA Tennis Collegiate Team. During the 2003 season, Yaroshuk-Tews led her team to a 17-7 record and an eighth consecutive trip to the NCAA Team Championship. Her squad advanced to the second round of the tournament and finished the season ranked 23rd in the country, marking the program's first top-25 finish since 1999. The Hurricanes had two players–Melissa Applebaum and Megan Bradley–in the NCAA Singles Championship for the first time since 1992, and placed a pair–Applebaum and Bradley–in the NCAA Doubles Championship for the first time since 1997, both ending the longest droughts in program history. In 2002, her first season as head coach, Yaroshuk-Tews guided the Hurricanes to their seventh BIG EAST Championship title and she was named BIG EAST Coach of the Year. The team finished with a 14-7 record and reached the second round of the NCAA Team Championship for the first time in three years. Half of Miami's wins came against ranked opponents that season and the Hurricanes had a player, Mari Toro, finish the season nationally ranked for the first time since 1999. Yaroshuk-Tews spent the 1998 and 1999 seasons as the assistant coach at Miami before being promoted to associate head coach for the 2000 and 2001 seasons. During that stretch, the Hurricanes won the BIG EAST Championship in both 1998 and 2000. In Yaroshuk-Tews' opening year on staff, UM had its first All-American–Lioudmila Skavronskaia–in three years, quickly ending the program's first two-year drought without one since its first two years of existence (1973-74). Prior to joining the Miami staff, Yaroshuk-Tews worked at the United States Tennis Association (USTA) Player Development Headquarters in Key Biscayne, Fla., as a traveling coach with the top U.S. junior players. Before her USTA appointment, Yaroshuk-Tews played professionally in satellite and challenger events. A Miami native and Killian High School graduate, Yaroshuk-Tews stood out among Florida juniors. In the Girl's 18 Division, she held the No. 1 ranking in Florida and the No. 8 spot nationally. Yaroshuk-Tews went on to star at UCLA, where she was a four-year letter winner and two-time ITA All-American. The Bruins made the NCAA Team Championship and finished in the top 15 all four of her seasons on the team, including a trio of top-10 finishes. She made an immediate impact as a freshman in 1993, playing No. 5 singles and No. 2 doubles for UCLA, who finished No. 13 in the nation. Her junior year, in 1995, Yaroshuk-Tews played No. 3 singles and No. 3 doubles for the Bruins, who concluded the year sixth in the country after reaching the Elite Eight. Individually, Yaroshuk-Tews made the NCAA Singles Championship and finished ranked No. 78 nationally. As a senior in 1996, Yaroshuk-Tews played No. 2 singles and No. 1 doubles for the Bruins, who made the Final Four and ended the season ranked fourth. Yaroshuk-Tews won the PAC-10 Indoor and Outdoor Doubles Championships with partner Keri Phebus and achieved ITA All-America and All-PAC-10 honors in both singles and doubles. The Bruins' top tandem was ranked as high as No. 1 in the nation during the 1996 season and finished No. 3, while Yaroshuk-Tews achieved a singles ranking as high as No. 13 and closed at No. 21. She made the round of 16 of the NCAA Singles Championship and the quarterfinals of the NCAA Doubles Championship. In addition, Yaroshuk-Tews was honored with UCLA's “Champs Award,” given to the school's most inspirational female athlete, and was named the team's Most Valuable Player. She was also appointed to the Rolex/ITA Collegiate All-Star Team. Yaroshuk-Tews graduated from UCLA in 1996 with a bachelor's degree in sociology, while earning PAC-10 academic honors. She began UM's graduate studies program in elementary education during the spring of 1999. Yaroshuk-Tews is the daughter of Ernie and Carol Yaroshuk. Her father was a member of the University of Miami baseball team from 1961-63, and was inducted into the UM Sports Hall of Fame in 1992. He holds the third-highest batting average (.448) in the program's single-season history. Yaroshuk-Tews and her father form the only father-daughter duo in the UMSHoF. On Jan. 10, 2004, Yaroshuk-Tews was married to Scott Tews. The couple lives in Palmetto Bay, Fla., with their daughter, Emma, and son, Landon.

Welcome to Season 11, Episode 14, of the ParentingAces Podcast, a proud member of the Tennis Channel Podcast Network.

Prior to working at Duke, Stokke served as an assistant women's tennis coach at Wake Forest for two years.

Stokke became the first student-athlete in Duke Men's Tennis history to win the ITA National Arthur Ashe Sportsmanship & Leadership Award in 2006 while also earning the USTA Sportsmanship Award – just the second Blue Devil to earn the honor next to Smith. He was an All-American and a two-time All-ACC selection while being named to the All-ACC Academic Team and ACC Honor Roll for three years. As a junior, Jonathan reached the quarterfinals of Kalamazoo Boys 18s Singles and won the doubles with partner, Rajeev Ram. They defeated John Isner and Brett Ross to win the championship.
