NASHVILLE – SwimSwam, a well-known college swimming website, named Vanderbilt swimming head coach Jeremy Organ the Women’s Swimming Coach of the Meet at the 2013 SEC Swimming and Diving Championships last week in College Station, Texas.
During the five days of competition, Vanderbilt set 14 new school records (200-yard medley relay, 200-yard free relay, 400-yard freestyle relay, 400-yard medley relay, 800-yard free relay, 100-yard freestyle, 100-yard backstroke, 100-yard breaststroke, 100-yard butterfly, 200-yard backstroke, 200-yard butterfly, 200-yard freestyle, 200-yard IM and 50-yard free).
"I am extremely happy and proud of our team," said Organ about his team’s record-setting week. "We have worked very hard all year and it was exciting to see everyone excel at what was the fastest SEC meet ever."
SwimSwam had this to say about the Commodores’ leader: “Yes, Vanderbilt was dead-last of the 12 women’s teams at this meet, but everyone has a different definition for what makes the most successful coach. If the true measure of a coach, though, is the ability to take athletes and teams to a new level of performance, it’s hard to argue with what Organ’s team did at the meet. In 18 swimming events, Jeremy Organ’s team broke 14 school records, in a single weekend. That’s the epitome of taking a team to the next level.”
