DURHAM — Duke assistant rowing coach Kathryn Hagglund was promoted to recruiting coordinator Monday, coach Robyn Horner announced.
Hagglund has been an assistant coach on the staff for two years. She previously oversaw the Blue Devils’ novice program and assisted with recruiting. She has been elevated to the varsity assistant position and will assume the recruiting coordinator duties from associate head coach Jim Lister, who was named an assistant coach of the Syracuse women’s rowing team Monday.
Hagglund came to Duke after earning 2011 Big East Coaching Staff of the Year honors as a graduate assistant at her alma mater, Louisville. That season, Hagglund helped the Cardinals to a second-place finish in the third varsity eight and second overall team finish at the Big East championships.
North Carolina: Head swimming coach Rich DeSelm announced that Abel Sánchez, a 2000 Summer Olympics participant and three-time All-American at Michigan, was named diving coach.
Sánchez comes from the University of New Mexico, where he had been diving coach since 2004.
The 2011 and 2012 Mountain West Coach of the Year, he coached six conference champions and two NCAA All-Americans.
High Point: The women’s team has added Jenna Burkett as an assistant coach.
Burkett spent the 2012-13 season at Stetson, where she helped the Hatters to a 24-9 record, the Atlantic Sun Conference title, and a No. 14 seed in the NCAA tournament. Burkett worked primarily with the guards.
Prior to Stetson, Burkett served as an assistant coach at Lenoir-Rhyne in Hickory in 2010-12. While at Lenoir-Rhyne, Burkett oversaw all on-floor instruction of guard player development.
