"Ann Elizabeth Curtis Cuneo" was an American competition swimmer and two-time Olympic champion.

Curtis was born in San Francisco, California, and was coached by Charlie Sava as a member of the San Francisco Crystal Plunge team. In 1944, at age 18, she became the first woman, as well as the first swimmer, to receive the coveted James E. Sullivan Award.

Curtis competed at the 1948 Summer Olympics in London, England, winning the gold medal in the Swimming at the 1948 Summer Olympics – Women's 400 metre freestyle/women's 400-meter freestyle. She won her second gold medal as a member of the Swimming at the 1948 Summer Olympics – Women's 4 × 100 metre freestyle relay/women's 4x100-meter freestyle relay team when she came from behind on the event's final leg to win. In addition to her gold medal wins, she also received the silver medal for her second-place finish in the Swimming at the 1948 Summer Olympics – Women's 100 metre freestyle/women's 100-meter freestyle.

During her career she set 4 world and 18 U.S. records.

She was inducted into the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame in 1983. Curtis died at her home in San Rafael, California on June 26, 2012; she was 86 years old.

We seem to have the most depth. But girls golf is a sport where you can see a lot of unexpected improvement and a lot of improvement in scores in August.

She's got a surprisingly good short game and nothing bothers her. But her second nine in the 18-hole rounds tends to hurt her. That's something we're working on.

Our mindset is split right now. They're thrilled they've improved, but they're also a little frustrated they haven't gotten over that hump over where their talent lies.

She's been working on removing mental errors from her rounds. She's getting better at it.

She's shown the most improvement I've ever seen from one year to the next. She's improved her game by more than a shot a hole in the past year. She really made the commitment in the offseason to put some effort into golf.

She was nervous playing the first match at No. 1, but she's got great spirit. She'll put the jitters behind her by the middle of the season.

As she's gotten more confidence she's been shooting more consistent scores. She's been playing with a different mindset.

It's something we still talk about, but it's not the same dark cloud that it was a year ago. I think it's helped that her class has graduated and we have a half-new team. This group of girls are ready now to make their own mark.

She's already tournament savvy. Players like Susan and Sarah and (current junior) Rachael (Johnson) had the same talent level at the beginning of their freshman years, but she has some experience behind her, too, so she's probably a step ahead. So she may be better, which is a huge compliment to her.
