[JAN. 16, 2007]  Lincoln College has named Dan Hemenway as the interim athletic director. Hemenway will replace Allen Pickering, who retired as athletic director at the end of December.

Hemenway, a native of St. Louis, Mo., received a bachelor's degree from Southwest Missouri State University and a master's degree from California State University. He joined Lincoln College in 1991 as the head swim coach and physical education instructor. In 15 years, the men's and women's teams have placed second at the national championships 12 times. He has coached 12 national champions, 96 all-Americans and 32 academic all-Americans. He was named National Coach of the Year three times. Hemenway lives in Lincoln with his children, Daniel and Grace.

Hemenway says he is very familiar with the variety of athletic programs that Lincoln College offers and feels he will offer a fresh approach to the operations. "I feel confident in the athletic department," he said. "We have some of the best coaches in their respective sports at this level. My goal is to continue the successful path that Allen Pickering led us. It will be difficult filling Allen's shoes, and I will need all the help I can get."

He is well-known and respected by college and high school coaches, both regionally and nationally. He will continue to bring solid mentorship to our student athletes."
