BRET LUNDGAARD

PRINCETON WOMEN’S HEAD COACH

 

The pipeline from Tennessee to New Jersey has once again brought a leader for the Princeton women’s swimming and diving program. Tennessee assistant coach Bret Lundgaard was named the sixth head coach for the Princeton Tigers prior to the 2017-18 season. He replaced Princeton legend and Tennessee graduate Susan Teeterfollowing her historic 33-year run with the Orange and Black.

Lundgaard made an immediate impact on the Princeton squad, as was shown at the 2018 Ivy League Championships. The Tigers won three individual titles, including a dramatic comeback in the 400 free relay, and the team improved by more than 270 points from the previous season. It capped a 9-3 season overall, and a 6-1 mark in the Ivy League, including a win over the eventual Ivy champion Crimson in Boston.

“We could not be more pleased to welcome Coach Lundgaard to the Tiger family,” said Mollie Marcoux Samaan, the Ford Family Director of Athletics, upon the hiring. “The search committee was thoroughly impressed by Bret’s overall approach to coaching, as well as his extremely well-articulated definition of Education Through Athletics. His track record of success both as a student-athlete and as a coach speaks for itself, but it was his passion for helping his student-athletes succeed athletically, academically and socially through an emphasis on both performance and values that what impressed us the most throughout the search process.”

Lundgaard, who is also currently a USA Swimming National Team Coach, had a remarkable five-year impact at Tennessee on both the individual and team levels prior to his arrival to Princeton. He was responsible for all training components for 2016 U.S. Olympian Molly Hannis, a four-year member of the US National Team who competed in Rio in the 200 breaststroke. Hannis was part of a 2013 Tennessee squad that placed third at the NCAA Championships, the best finish in program history.

Bret Lundgaard has been a huge influence on my swimming career,” Hannis said. “His ability to learn and evolve my breaststroke, and breaststroke in general, has rivaled some of the best coaches in the world. Princeton has found one of the most talented and quickly rising innovators in the sport. I will truly miss Bret and I will always be thankful for his contribution to my growth and success as both a person and as an athlete.”
