Meet the new swim coach
1)What is your name?
2) Where are you from?
Minnesota mainly, but I was born in Wisconsin
3) What experience(if any) do you have in coaching high school athletics?
I was a volunteer coach on deck with Fred and Jade last year. I have been a part of HS and club athletics for 15 years as a parent of athletes (swimming, hockey, golf, lacrosse, cheer, gymnastics to name a few), and have been a part of the swimming community since I was in high school. I also have been working on attaining swim coaching certifications through the American Swim Coach Association.
4) What brought you to Delphi?
Specifically, I fell in love with our house and thought Delphi was a cute town. Generally, my husband took a job in Indiana in the Spring of 2017.
5) What are your plans for the team this year?
So many plans! Making swimming fun is a huge priority. It isn’t an easy sport. We have to mix it up now and then and just have fun. We had great success last year. I want to continue to build on that success. I hope our girls team can win the conference again, and I am hopeful that some of our relays, boys and girls, will win their sectional events and move on to state. I believe that we have some individual swimmers who also have a shot at winning their sectional events and going to state, too. Some of our swimmers and relays have their eyes on breaking more records (2 were broken last year) this year. That would be great! I believe that every single swimmer will see positive results from all the hard work they do every day. My hope is that our team will make wonderful friendships with one another this season and will be excited to be part of the team.
