Brittany Viola & Amy Deem

Yesterday was Iron Arrow's tapping day at the Coral Gables campus as a part of homecoming week, and two members of the athletic department were tapped. Iron Arrow is the highest honor attainable at the University of Miami.

Brittany Viola won the 2008 NCAA championship in diving's ten-meter platform. She is shown (above) with assistant AD's Tony Hernandez and Connie Nickel.

Amy Deem has guided 35 student-athletes to a combined 128 All-America honors and 10 individual National Championships, including 2006 NCAA Outdoor triple jump Champion Tabia Charles, 2005 NCAA Indoor and Outdoor shot put champion Kim Barrett and 2004 NCAA 100-meter Champion Lauryn Williams. Williams and assistant AD Tony Hernandez are shown here with Coach Deem.
