|Title:||Head Diving Coach|
Stan Randall is in his 11th season as Trinity’s head diving coach.
Since being appointed to the position in August 2002, three Trinity divers have captured NCAA Division III Women’s Championships.
In 2010, Coach Randall guided two of his divers to the national crown, just days apart, in Minneapolis. Lindsay Martin won the NCAA 1-meter event, and Hayley Emerick took home the top prize on the 3-meter board. Martin was later named the NCAA Women’s Diver of the Meet. For his efforts, Coach Randall was named the 2010 NCAA Division III Women’s Diving Coach of the Meet.
Trinity’s third women’s diving national title came in March 2012, as Ruth Hahn won the 3-meter competition at Indianapolis.
Emerick, a six-time All-American, was a finalist for the NCAA Woman of the Year Award in 2011, and NCAA Postgraduate Scholar. Martin earned All-America honors for two years. Six of Coach Randall’s divers have become All-Americans, including Ryan Cook, a three-year men’s recipient of the high accolade.
In addition, Coach Randall’s teams have produced Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Divers of the Year, on 10 occasions.
Coach Randall also trains diving coaches in the Community Olympic Development Program, in partnership with San Antonio Sports.
A native of Austin, Texas, Coach Randall grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and attended The Ohio State University. He moved to San Antonio in 1995 and has been the director of the Alamo Area Aquatics Association diving program since that time. At Alamo Area Aquatics, he has been preparing and developing top-level athletes for a future in university diving or careers in teaching the sport by way of his mentor program for prospective coaches.
Coach Randall is truly one of the United States elite age group diving coaches, having developed many local, state, national, and international diving champions. He has over 45 years of coaching experience, with his earliest national level success coming in 1974 (and again in 1976) when he had divers selected for the United States Junior Olympic Teams.
He has coached numerous members of various U. S. National Diving Teams. In 1982, Coach Randall had his first double international gold medalist at the Can-Am-Mex Games. He was also the recipient of the United States Age Group Coach of the Year Award that same year. His internationally famous Red Roof Inn diving team won the U.S. national team title in 1984 and again in 1986.
In 1986, Coach Randall was selected to be the U.S. national team coach responsible for taking an American diving squad which competed in Aachen, West Germany. Two years later, he was appointed the U.S. senior diving coach for a national team trip to Moscow. Since then, he has coached American teams at international meets in Sweden, Austria, Mexico, England, Canada, and Switzerland. Coach Randall has also conducted training camps and clinics in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Montreal, Quebec; Sweden; Austria; and Denmark.
Apart from his dedication to the sport of diving, Coach Randall’s hobbies include horseback riding, photography, and backpacking. Much to his joy, he can do all of these here in San Antonio and its surrounding countryside.
Coach Randall will provide future Trinity University divers with the opportunity to learn from one of our country's finest teachers. Any diver seeking a superior undergraduate academic program and an exciting athletic experience should consider attending Trinity University.
