Tracy Duchac was named assistant coach for the Stanford women's swimming team in September of 2012 after serving the previous season as an assistant at Arizona.
Duchac, who earned honorable mention All-America honors as a swimmer at Purdue, helped Arizona to a fifth-place finish at the 2012 NCAA Championships, the program's ninth consecutive NCAA finish in the top five.
Prior to her one-year stint at Arizona, Duchac served as the women's assistant coach at Texas A&M for five seasons.
During her tenure at Texas A&M, the women's team posted a program-best five top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championships, including a fourth-place showing in 2008.
In 2009, Duchac mentored Texas A&M's first two NCAA individual national champions in Julia Wilkinson and Alia Atkinson.
Duchac also served as a volunteer assistant coach at Purdue and was instrumental in the Boilermakers setting nine team records, while posting a top-25 finish at the 2006 NCAA Championships. Duchac also helped coach a club team with Boilermaker Aquatics.
A 2006 graduate of Purdue, Duchac earned a bachelor's degree in health promotion. Duchac is a former College Swim Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) All-Academic honoree and a three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection.
Duchac became the first Boilermaker in program history to break the 23-second barrier in the 50-yard freestyle. She made a trio of appearances at the NCAA Championships (2003, 2004, 2005) and earned honorable mention All-American honors in the 200- and 400-yard freestyle relays. Duchac had a hand in recording school records in each of those events.
A native of Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., Duchac is married to Adam Slusser.
