  • Swimming
  • Hall of Fame Class of 1993
Steve Koga owns the most individual NAIA national championships in school history- in any sport- with five titles in swimming. The four-time NAIA All-American (1979-1982) won the 100 freestyle three times at nationals from 1980-1982 and the 50 freestyle as a junior and senior. He also placed second in the 50 freestyle as a sophomore and second in the 100 butterfly as a junior, when the Bearcat men recorded their highest- ever finish at the national meet by placing sixth. As of his induction, Koga still held all-time Willamette records in the 50-yard freestyle (20.88), 100 freestyle (45.85) and 100 butterfly (51.43); the three oldest records in men's swimming.
