Blugold Hall of Fame
Kim Hubbard-Hartung

A three-time NAIA national diving champion, Hubbard-Hartung helped the Blugolds to back-to-back national team championships and four conference titles during her career which spanned the 1985 to 1989 seasons.

She was the NAIA diver of the year in both 1988 and 1989, winning the one-meter crown both years and the three-meter title in 1989. She was featured in Sports Illustrated's Faces in the Crowd on April 18, 1988 after winning her national championship. The 1980s was a decade in which UW-Eau Claire divers dominated the NAIA championships with 14 golds. Only fellow Hall of Famer Sara Smith earned more national diving titles with four.

Hubbard-Hartung received her Bachelor of Science degree in 1990 with a physical education certification for grades K-12 and adaptive physical education with an emphasis in aquatics, elementary education and health education. She has done graduate work at the universities of North Florida and Central Florida.

She coached diving at Eau Claire Memorial High School for two years, then spent five years coaching swimming and diving at Osceola High School in Florida. She also coached diving for the Team Orlando club and most recently coached swimming at Wilkinson Junior High in Middleburg, Florida. She was a three-time Swimming Coach of the Year at Osceola.

She taught the elementary grades for five years in Kissimmee, Florida and this past year at Orange Park, Florida. She has spent a great deal of time and effort in the advancement of wellness and healthy lifestyles, has been active in soliciting grants for physical education equipment and instrumental in physical education curriculum development. She raised $10,000 for a running track at Reedy Creek Elementary School and it was subsequently named in her honor.

Hubbard-Hartung is First Responder and Sportsmedicine Certified in addition to being American Council on Exercise Personal Trainer Certified.

She participated in the Masters Diving Program at Team Orlando in 1994-95.

She and her husband Charles, who is in the military, have two young children, Madison Leigh and Emily Reigh. They are headed for a two-year stint in Guam this coming January.
