 Johannsen

Scott Johannsen will begin his fifth year as the head coach of both the men and women's swim teams at Augustana for the 2012-13 school year. Johannsen put together a solid first four years in charge of both programs.

During the 2011-12 season, he led the Augustana men to a 4-3 dual meet record and a fifth place finish in the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin. The Vikings also finished third at the Pioneer Classic at Grinell, and fourth at the Grinell Invitational. The season was marked by the setting of six school records, and the naming of Johannsen as the CCIW male “Coach of the Year” for the second straight season. Over Johannsen's tenure, the men have set a total of eight new school records.

He also led the Augustana women to a 2-5 dual meet record and a fifth place finish in the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin. The Vikings also finished second at the IWU Invite, seventh at the Pioneer Classic and eighth at the Grinell Invite. The season also saw Augustana break four school records at the CCIW meet on February 16. The four new records brought the total under Johannsen to five.

“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.
