 Johannsen

Scott Johannsen will begin his fourth year as the head coach of both the men and women's swim teams at Augustana for the 2011-12 school year. Johannsen, who replaced Greg Naumann in June of 2008, put together a solid first three years in charge of both programs.  

He led the Augustana women to a 2-2 dual meet record and a fourth place finish in the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin during the 2010-11 season. The Vikings finished second at the Illinois Wesleyan Invitational and finished third at both the IWU Halloween Invite and the Grinnell Invitational. To top off the season Augustana awarded “All-Academic Team” honors by the College Swim Coaches Association of America.  

The men also went 2-2 in dual meets during Johannsen's third year and placed fifth in the CCIW. The Vikings were second in the IWU Halloween Invitational and third at both the Illinois Wesleyan Invitational and the Grinell Invitational.  

“I am pleased that Scott Johannsen has accepted the head men and women's swim coach position at Augustana,” said Mike Zapolski, director of athletics, at the time of his hiring in the summer of 2008. “At the beginning of this search, it was clear that establishing a higher level of commitment and continuity from a coaching perspective was critical. I believe that Scott has the expertise and passion to be a difference-maker for the future growth of swimming at Augustana. Scott is a Quad Cities native and a well-known commodity in the regional swimming community.”  

Johannsen has been the head coach of the Pleasant Valley Stingrays Swim Club from September of 2006. He was responsible for a club that had 150 swimmers. He is also the owner/manager of the Samax Corporation since 1994.

He was a standout swimmer at Davenport West High School where he became the first four year varsity letter winner in school history. He was a three time first team all-state performer in the 100 butterfly and held the school record in that event until 1996. He attended Western Illinois on a swimming scholarship and served as captain of the team. He was a two time finalist in the 100 butterfly in the Mid Continent Conference.  

Prior to coaching the Stingrays, he was also the head coach of the Rock Island YMCA club team from 1987 through 1990.  

He has been active in various youth programs throughout the Quad Cities and has served as the president of the Davenport Knights of Columbus and the John F. Kennedy Athletic Club. He was the vice president of the Kimberly Village Homeowner's Association in 2000-01.
