Joseph R. Rogers Jr., Pool
Dedicated on April 26, 1986, in memory of 36-year head coach Joseph R. Rogers, Jr., the pool is home to the UMass men's and women's swimming and diving programs. Located inside of Boyden Gymnasium, Rogers Pool is also available to the student body and general public.
Mandy Hixon enters her 15th year on the UMass coaching staff in 2015-16 after an eight-year stint as head mens and womens diving coach at Amherst (Mass.) College.
“Mandy has done an unbelievable job in turning our diving program into one of the best in the Northeast,” said head coach Russ Yarworth. “She is one of the top coaches around and is a wonderful person and role model for our athletes.”,
In her 13 years at UMass, Hixon has transformed the program into the Atlantic 10s best. She has coached five of the last eight A-10 Divers of the Year on the mens side and the last six A-10 Divers of the Year on the womens side.
