Very young coach who seems to have his act together and doing the right thing for the athlete. The best of luck at Trials and down the road.

Great interview. Especially like his comments about why Katie swam at Junior Nationals rather than Senior Nationals last year. Just because someone can swim at a higher level doesn’t always mean that they should. These kids work so hard and deserve to experience success each step of the way. Best of luck to Katie in Omaha & beyond.
