Bauerle selected for CSCAA Lifetime Achievement Award

Jack Bauerle, recently retired Tom Cousins Swimming and Diving Head Coach, has been selected to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award by the executive board of the College Swimming & Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA).

This award is presented to the individual whose efforts best exemplify the integrity and ideals of collegiate swimming and who has achieved significant success in the sport while imparting the educational and character-building qualities of the collegiate swimming experience.

Including his tenures as head coach, assistant coach and student-athlete, Bauerle has been associated with Georgia for more than 50 years. In his time overseeing Georgia’s program, Bauerle produced seven NCAA and 12 SEC crowns with the Lady Bulldogs. In 2008, Bauerle was chosen as the United States women’s team coach for the Olympics, leading the American women to 14 medals, the most of any nation. He coached for Team USA at each of the last six Olympic Games, serving as a women’s assistant in 2000, men’s assistant in 2016 and 2020, and personal coach in 2004 and 2012.

Bauerle will be recognized at the 62nd annual CSCAA College Swimming & Diving Awards on May 8 in Orlando, Florida.
