2018 TSDHOF Inductees are Doug Ingram (Lifetime Achievement), Tom Landgraf, and three Longhorns -Troy Dumais, Kris Kubik, and Doug Gjertsen
Troy Dumais grew up in a family of divers in California. He made his way to the University of Texas in 1998 and was a seven-time NCAA Champion and member of three national championship teams with the Longhorns. He continued diving for TSDHOF Hall of Fame coach Matt Scoggin and Longhorn Diving for the next 15 years. Troy equaled Greg Louganis when he qualified for his fourth Olympic team in 2012. The London games were also his best. He teamed with Kristian Ipsen to capture the bronze medal in synchronized 3m. He won 36 U.S. national titles and multiple medals at multiple World Championships, World Cups and Pan American Games. Troy now lives in Dallas, and is studying to be a chiropractic doctor.
Kris Kubik served as the assistant coach for the University of Texas men’s swimming and diving program for 34 years. Working alongside Head Coach Eddie Reese, their teams combined to win a record total of 12 NCAA team championships during that span. The duo coached 54 individual NCAA champions, 42 NCAA relay champions, and 28 Olympians. Kubik also served as an assistant coach for Team USA in the 2007 Pan Am Games, the 2008 Olympic Games, the 2009 World Championships, and the 2015 World University Games. He was one of the founders of the Longhorn Swimming Camp and mentored more than 10,000 swimmers throughout his years with the program. Kubik retired from coaching in 2016 and resides in Austin with his wife, April.
