* Howard Joins UE Swimming Coaching Staff

University of Evansville men’s and women’s swimming and diving head coach Rickey Perkins has announced former UE swimmer Alex Howard as assistant coach for the 2012-13 season.

“I am very excited about working with Alex and getting to know her in this new role,” said Perkins. “She brings a lot of eagerness and knowledge, and there is no doubt that she will help make our program better.”

Howard graduated in May after swimming four years for the Purple Aces. She received post-season honors after all four seasons, receiving all-conference honorable mention as a freshman and sophomore before being named to the All-Missouri Valley Conference first team her junior and senior years. Howard was twice named MVC Swimmer of the week and earned MVC Scholar-Athlete recognition three times. She set four UE records during the 2011-12 season, breaking her own record in the 100-backstroke while helping three UE relay teams beat the top times. 

“I'm so excited to continue my relationship with the University of Evansville swimming and diving teams,” said Howard. “This team has meant so much to me for the past four years, and I'm excited for the opportunity to contribute to the program in a new way.”

Howard served as assistant coach for South Dearborn Swimming for six years and has given group and private swimming lessons since 2006.
