Ned Anderson - Rugby
Ned Anderson is a 1967 Cal football letterman who captained the 1971 rugby team on its tour of Australia and New Zealand, winning five of nine matches. Cal's results in that historic rugby tour included wins over Queensland University at Ballymore (11-9), New South Wales Country at Dalby (24-13), Australia Capital Territory at Canberra (20-17) and a 17-8 loss to Sydney University. He also represented Cal on the all University of California side that achieved a winning record on a similar international tour during the summer of 1970. In 1975 at the age of 29, Anderson became the Bears' head rugby coach, succeeding the legendary Miles "Doc" Hudson. He is one of only six head coaches in Cal's over 125-year rugby history. Anderson's teams continued Cal's winning rugby tradition through the '70s, and in 1980, when the first official national collegiate championship was established, he led the Bears to four straight national titles. In 1982, he hired Jack Clark, one of his former players, as an assistant coach. Anderson remained as an assistant after Clark took the helm in 1984 and stayed close to the program through the ensuing years before returning to the Cal coaching staff in 2003.
Amanda Augustus/Amy Jensen - Women's Tennis
Amanda Augustus and Amy Jensen captured Cal's first-ever NCAA title in women's tennis. The pair won two NCAA doubles championships with the Bears, starting in 1998 when they became the first unseeded pair to win the title. A year later, they repeated their feat and finished their career as a tandem with a 56-13 record. Jensen went on to claim a third consecutive crown in 2000, setting an NCAA record that still stands. She partnered with Claire Curran following Augustus' graduation. Prior to joining forces with Jensen, Augustus reached the NCAA quarterfinals with Francesca La'O in 1996 and the second round with Curran in 1997. Individually, Augustus was a four-time NCAA qualifier in singles, advancing to the quarterfinals as a junior and earning a combined six All-America certificates in singles and doubles. Jensen was a five-time All-American and played in the NCAA singles draw on two occasions. She served as an assistant coach, then associate head coach, with the Bears under Jan Brogan from 2003-06. Augustus returned to Cal in July 2007 as head women's tennis coach, directing the Bears to the NCAA team final in both '08 and '09. Under her guidance, Mari Andersson and Jana Juricova won the 2009 NCAA doubles crown, while Juricova captured the NCAA singles title this spring.
Jan Brogan - Women's Tennis Coach
Head coach of the Bears from 1978-2007, Jan Brogan compiled a 539-223 record, retiring with the fourth-most wins on the NCAA's all-time tennis victories list. An eight-time conference Coach of the Year and four-time regional Coach of the Year, Brogan was named the National Coach of the Year in 1990. She guided the Bears to 28 consecutive postseason berths, including 21 top-10 finishes. Under her tutelage, Cal produced 61 All-Americans, 19 first-team All-Pac-10 players and five conference Players of the Year. In 1991, Lisa Albano became the first Golden Bear to reach the NCAA singles final, while Susie Babos was Cal's first singles champion, taking the title in 2006. The Bears also captured four NCAA doubles titles. Cal players were named to the Pac-10 All-Academic squad 27 times and were voted Academic All-American on four occasions. Brogan was a member of the NCAA Women's Tennis Committee for seven years and also served as co-chair of the ITA Sports Science Committee with former Cal assistant coach Kathy Toon. She was inducted into the NorCal Tennis Hall of Fame in 2007.

Dave Butler combined the best of athletics and academics from 1983-87 during his Cal career. He was tabbed the Pac-10 Freshman of the Year in 1983 when he averaged 7.8 ppg and 6.0 rpg. A four-year starter, Butler led the Bears in rebounding three times. He finished his career fourth on the school's all-time rebounding list with 814 boards (now sixth), while he was also seventh at the end of his career in scoring with 1,291 points (now 17th). Butler set a school record for free throws made and attempted when he shot 20-of-24 from the line vs. Arizona State in 1987 and he still holds the Cal mark for games started at 113. He helped the Bears earn their first postseason berth in 26 years when Cal played in the 1986 National Invitation Tournament. The Bears returned to the NIT his senior year and advanced to the quarterfinals. Butler, who was a member of the U.S. National team during the summer of 1986, was chosen in the fifth round of the 1987 NBA Draft by the Boston Celtics. In the classroom, Butler was twice named first-team Pac-10 All-Academic. He was a second-team Academic All-American as a junior and claimed first-team status his senior year. He also was awarded an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship. A Rhodes Scholar candidate, Butler received his bachelor's degree in 1986 and went on to earn an MBA from Cal's Haas School of Business in 1990.
