Popular Mountain View Masters Coach Alan Liu, 31, was killed by a 
drunken driver as the coach was riding his bicycle on Highway 12 near 
Santa Rosa.

Alan and his girl friend, Jill Mason, were cycling along Highway 12 
when they were hit from behind by a drunk driver. Alan was pronounced 
dead at the scene, and Jill suffered major head and spinal trauma. 
She has not regained consciousness and is in intensive care at Santa 
Rosa Memorial Hospital.

Alan had been coaching at Mountain View since 1997 Liu fellow 
swimmers described him as an enthusiastic and motivated swimmer and 
coach who work for the team went well beyond the call of duty.

"He was the heart and soul of Mountain View Masters," said Laura 
Schuster, president of the club's board. "He was so dedicated."

"Speaking for myself, I would have swam to hell and back for the guy" 
said Chris Campbell, a fellow coach who added "all the girls were 
crazy for him."
