He then took his girls to be coached by Coach Mark at Bridlewood where he has been helping out on the pool deck during the Saturday morning meets as an official at the same time as getting to watch his girls swim. He is extremely excited to be part of a team that will continue to spread the love of swimming with a staff that loves swimming as much as he does.
