      Coach Looze

      THE STAFF

       

      Ray Looze - Head Swimming Coach, Indiana University

      Ray Looze is in 13th year at the helm of both the men's and women's swimming programs and his 16th year of mentoring the men at Indiana University. Looze has achieved unparalleled success as both a coach and world-class swimmer, accomplishments he carried into his reign over the Hoosiers since his hiring in June 2002.

      Since arriving in Bloomington, Looze has made it his mission to return Indiana swimming to the elite level it maintained throughout the 1960s and 70s. He's clearly made huge strides in that direction, evidenced by these facts:

      • In 2017, the Indiana men’s swimming program won its first Big Ten title since 2006, and finished seventh at NCAAs. The women, meanwhile, finished eighth at NCAAs to go along with a sixth straight runner-up finish in the Big Ten. Lilly King defended her NCAA titles in the 100 and 200 breaststroke and IU had eight swimmers earn a total of 24 All-America honors at the NCAA Championships. After becoming the first coach to ever win Big Ten Coach of the Year honors in both men’s and women’s swimming in the same season in 2016, Looze did it again in 2017
      • in 2016, Looze and his swimmers shined at the Summer Olympics in Rio, capturing four gold medals and five medals overall. Seven of Looze’s swimmers qualified for the Olympics (including three on Team USA) and Looze was a member of Team USA’s coaching staff. Current IU swimmer Lily King set a new Olympic record while winning gold in the 100 breaststroke, and also claimed gold in the 4x100 medley relay. On the men’s side, former IU swimmer Cody Miller won gold in the 4x100 medley relay and bronze in the 100 breaststroke. Current IU swimmer Blake Pieroni, meanwhile, captured gold in the 4x100 relay. In addition to that Team USA trio, Kennedy Goss, Ali Khalafalla, Marwan Elkamash and Anze Tavcar also competed in the Summer Games
      • In 2016, Looze became the first coach ever to be named Big Ten Men’s and Women’s Swimming Coach of the Year after guiding both teams to top-10 NCAA finishes and runner-up finishes at the Big Ten Championships. Looze has now earned Big Ten Coach of the year honors six times (four times for the men, twice with the women)
      • the IU women have won four Big Ten titles and finished in the NCAA top-15 in each of the Looze's 12 seasons, including a school-best-ever seventh place finish in 2016
      • IU freshman Lily King was named Swimmer of the Year after winning both the 100 and 200 breaststroke events at the 2016 NCAA Championships
      • the IU men have placed in the top-10 at the NCAAs in four of the past five years and placed a Big Ten-best ninth in 2016
      • in 2012, three of Looze's swimmers competed in the Summer Olympics in London - Marquax Farrell, Dorina Szekeres and Nicholas Schwab. Farrell highlighted the Hoosiers' performances, capturing a bronze medal in the 800 free relay 
      • Looze has coached NCAA champions Lily King (2016 – 100 & 200 breaststroke), Brooklynn Snodgrass (2014 – 200 backstroke), Kate Fesenko (2010 - 200 backstroke) and Ben Hesen (2008 - 100 backstroke)
      • In addition to his work with the U.S. Olympic Team over the summer, Looze also coached Team USA's women's team at the FINA Short Course World Championships in Doha, Qatar, and also served as Team USA's head women's coach the 2015 World University Games in South Korea..      

        Mike Westphal - Assistant Head Coach, Indiana Swimming

        Mike Westphal is in his 13th season at Indiana and is in his third year as the associate head coach.

        Westphal is the lead coach for the men's team, concentrating on the training of the distance and middle distance group. In 2016-17, the Indiana men claimed the program’s 25th Big Ten Championship, going wire-to-wire to earn the title. For the week, IU won a total of 19 medals – 12 gold, five silver and two bronze. Indiana also won four of the five relays at the Big Ten Championships, marking the first time in program history the team accomplished that impressive feat.

        At the 2017 NCAA Championships, the Hoosiers placed seventh overall – the best finish for the team since 1979. The 229.5 points are the most for IU since scoring 274 in 1975. The top-10 finish for the Hoosiers at the NCAA Championships is the fifth in the last six years. For the second-straight season, Indiana finished as the top Big Ten team at the NCAA Championships – the best stretch for IU since accomplishing the feat for 15-straight seasons from 1964-78.

        Over the course of the meet, the Hoosiers had 13 individuals earn a total of 32 All-America honors – the most in program history in 42 years since the team tallied 36 in 1975.  

        Coley Stickels - Associate Head Coach, Indiana Swimming

        Indiana University head swimming coach Ray Looze announced the hiring of Coley Stickels as Associate Head Sprint Swimming coach effective July 1. Stickels comes to Bloomington from the prestigious Canyons Aquatic Club in Santa Clarita, Calif., where he served as head coach since 2012.

        During his time with the Canyons Aquatic Club, Stickels helped lead the team to unprecedented success. Over 50 Southern California Swimming records were broken by Canyons swimmers, five American records, one world record, six National Age Group records and four national high school records. Most recently, Stickels helped guide current World, U.S. Open and American record holder Abbey Weitzeil to gold and silver medals at the 2016 Rio Olympics. He also helped lead 2015 World Championship bronze medalist Santo Condorelli to an Olympic final in Rio.

        On the international level, Stickels' swimmers have earned World Championship gold and bronze medals, Pan-Am Games silver and bronze medals, World University Games gold, silver and bronze medals, Pan-Pacific silver medal and Short Course World Championships gold and silver medals. In 2013-14, Canyons swimmers qualified and competed in the Junior World Championships, as well as Junior Pan-Pacific Championships.
