Swim Coach
Vacates Post
Mike Hoyman, varsity and
freshman swimming coach at
Oregon for seven years, who has
led Webfoot tank teams to four
northern division crowns and
three mythical Pacific coast ti
tles, announced his resignation
from that post yesterday.
In a letter to Anse B. Cor
nell, he stated: “Under the pres
ent setup I am being hampered
in my professional development
and advancement in the field of
school health education, because
of coaching duties. My relations
with the ASUO and with the —»
swimmers has been so cordial
during the past 10 years that it
is with regret that I find this
step necessary.”
Hoyman's Record
Hoyman has a most enviable
record. His teams have won more
championships, and he has turned
out more stars than any other
coach on the Pacific coast. Only
in 1934 and the 1041 season did
his team fail to win the northern
division flag. In 1934 they won
the dual meet title, but failed
in the conference meet, and placed
second in the division in 1941.
One of his most enviable
was leading the mermen to vic
tory over.the highly-famed Olym
pic club. They had not been beat
en in five years, and the Ore
gon squad eked out a 38 to 37
win over them on their trip south
this season.
Division Meet
In the northern division meet,
Oregon amassed 88 points, the
closest contender being Wash
ington with 30. This was the
first time such a score had been
made in that meet and was also
the first time any northern di
vision team had taken evqptf
first place.
Perhaps one reason for Hoy
man’s continual success, is the
fact that he is never beaten on
paper. Before the Washington
meet this year, Oregon was a
decided underdog, but Hoyman
couldn’t agree. He remarked that
no team could beat him on pa
per; they had to do it in the
Hoyman was absent during
1939 and 1940, when the coach
ing duties were taken over by
Ned Johns and Russ Cutler. No
statement has been made as to
who will be his successor, and no
appointment is expected until the
athletic board meets April 13. ’’I*’’
