Assistant Coach

From the ages 5 all the way to 18, I swam on the Gators.  I swam on the Irvington swim team and graduated in 2021. Because of my interest in swim this led me to play water polo at Irvington for 4 years. Currently, I am a student at Ohlone College. I look forward to coaching the Gator swimmers.
