Coach.  No one understood the sport of swimming better than this great aquatic coach. Arriving at Westside High School in Omaha in 1963, he became their swimming and diving coach until 1977. During his tenure there the Roman Warriors of Westside High became a dominating force in the state, gaining plaudits across the nation. Westside won ten state championships in swimming and diving while under the direction of Coach Cal Bentz. His next twenty-two years were spent serving as men’s head coach and director of men & women’s swim programs at the University of Nebraska, winning fifteen men’s conference championships: three women’s titles, and numerous top 10 national finishes with both squads. Cal Bentz is a co-founder of American College Connection.
