The 2015 season will open with NorCal relays - an opportunity for the women to race in non-traditional races and have some fun. This season returning are several state and NorCal finalist, Emily Perry and Alexandria Dumaplin with NorCal diving champion Tiera Kraft. A host of freshman look to compliment the team with Elizabeth Crocker swimming fly and distance events, Robyn Butler in back and sprint free and Mariah Motheral & Bailey Carpenter sprinting breaststroke and IM. Returning sophomores and energetic freshman make the squad of 20 ready to train hard to compete in The Big 8!!
New to the ARC coaching staff is alumni Kenny Waldthaler. We are excited to welcome this CCCAA State champion in the 200 free graduate of American River College and UC Berkley. Kenny swam and played water polo at ARC earning a scholarship to play for the Golden Bears. Kenny brings great knowledge and an encouraging voice to the pool deck. Training daily with the swimmers he encourages each athlete thru the sets, works on technique, and encourages athletes to make the most of each practice. Kenny is a great addition to the staff and we are excited to have him back on the pool deck!
