DU swimming coaches and changes

Snip from news by Jason Wawrzeniak

Addressing Duquesne's women's swimming program, Athletics Director Brian Colleary named Jamie Cona the new Duquesne University women's swimming coach.

Cona, a four-year swimming letterwinner for Duquesne from 1996 to 1999, helped lead the Dukes to a 32-18 record during her four seasons that included a program-best 8-3 mark as a sophomore.

The 23-year-old Cona has coached in her hometown of Cherry Hill, N.J., and served as a graduate assistant last season for both the men's and women's programs.

With the addition of Cona, the 2000-2001 season marks the first time that the men's and women's programs have had separate coaches.

Jamie Cona lasted for one year at the helm of the DU Womens Swim Team. Dave Sheets was hired as the next womens coach.
