The evening practices will be coached by Erin Sullivan and Sue Nutty.  Erin has been part of our program since the early days when we were at UNO, dating back to 1983.  One of her true passions is Masters swimming.  For the past four years Erin has been coaching the Omaha Masters.  She is a distance athlete by nature but she also does a great job with our sprint practices on Friday mornings where she averages over 30 swimmers at practice.  Sue Nutty is a coach who has done it all in the coaching world from College (Carthage College & Bowling Green), High School (Brownell Talbot), age group (Norfolk YMCA), and summerleague (Keystone Pool).  Because of her vast experiences and broad knowledge, Sue has been one of our swimmers who can take over the program for a couple of weeks when its time for the main coach to go on vacation.

 

GO - Speed Racer - GO!!!

 It has been brought to my attention that a few cars have been in a hurry to get to practice, and also in a hurry to get to work/ home after practice. Please slow down, that extra quarter of a mile will not have any significant impact on arrival time.

 

CSM going to Nationals

The College of St Mary Swimming team will be heading to Nationals on March 5.  When you see them at the pool, wish them luck as they prepare over these next three weeks!
