I am 16 years old and a junior at Clayton Valley High School. This will be my 10th year on VDD. My favorite stroke is breaststroke and IM and I look forward to every swim season to reunite with friends. I have been a junior coach for the last 2 years and am thankful for the opportunity to be an assistant coach this season. My favorite part of coaching is helping swimmers improve their strokes and having fun while doing it. I am excited for another fun season! Go Dolphins!!
