Kristy Brager, former George Mason coach, joins Iowa swimming staff


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa swimming and diving team has welcomed new assistant coach Kristy Brager to its ranks, announced head coach Marc Long on Wednesday. Brager spent the last two years coaching at George Mason.

Brager helped coach the Patriots’ men’s team to two second-place finishes in the Colonial Athletics Association, which is the best run George Mason has made in program history. Six league champions earned titles (men’s and women’s) during Brager’s tenure. Her athletes also broke 11 school records and set eight conference records.

Brager coached All-American and two-time NCAA runner-up Ashley Danner in the breaststroke, who became the 10th-fastest American woman in the 100-meter event.

The new Hawkeye also spent several seasons coaching high-school and club teams, producing three Olympic trial qualifiers, five senior national swimmers, and 12 junior national athletes.

The new assistant coach swam at Wisconsin during her own college career, where she earned several team honors, such as perfect attendance, most improved award, and the hardest worker award.
