Swimming and diving
This year, BSC added its newest athletics teams—
men’s and women’s swimming and diving—bringing
the total number of varsity teams at the college to 22.
Former University of Evansville Head Coach Toby
Wilcox was been hired to lead Birmingham-Southern’s
new swimming and diving programs. Wilcox had
most recently been head swimming and diving coach
at North High School in Evansville, Ind., where 21 of
his students made the All-City Academic Team and his
squad broke 18 school records last season.
Athletics Director Joe Dean Jr. said adding the new
teams was an easy decision, especially since they will
use the new state-of-the-art and world-class pool at
the nearby Birmingham Metro CrossPlex.
It’s a win-win for the college and the scholar-
athletes,” Dean said.
The teams begin competition in the 2012-13
academic year.
