Assistant Head Coach
Sugeera started off her swimming career at the age of 10, on a summer league team in Westlake Village, CA. She would later swim for Westlake High School and a local club team, her junior and senior year. After competing on her varsity team for three years and making a CIF appearance in her senior year, Sugeera went on to swim at UC Santa Cruz. She is a top 10 time holder on the team for both the 100 and 200 breaststroke and was awarded PCSC athlete of the meet for the 2009-2010 season. She competed for the Banana Slugs all four years. Before graduating high school, Sugeera began running and coaching her former summer league team, where she was the head coach for 4 years. After graduating from UCSC, she went on to coach for Cal Lutheran University and was also a club age-group coach during the college off-season. Sugeera is very excited to find a place on deck with MSC Gators and looks forward to great summer season!
Zach A Tran
Senior Assistant Coach
Zach, 22, is back coaching at MSC after a 4-year hiatus. He first started swimming competitively for MSC when he was 12 years old, and was a gold swimmer from ages 14-18. His favorite stroke is butterfly, but also likes freestyle and backstroke. Zach came back to coach this summer mainly because he loves to coach the wonderful and rambunctious young swimmers on MSC. He enjoys seeing swimmers work extremely hard in practice and swim fast during meets. But most of all, Zach loves to see the smiles on kids’ faces when they get their best times at the OMPA swim meet.
Zach’s fondest memory of his swimming career was when he placed top 10 in freestyle, backstroke, and butterfly at the 2011 OMPA meet, which was his very last OMPA. He also swam 3 years at Campolindo High School, where he graduated in 2011. He hopes to pass on the valuable lessons that he learned when he was younger to the kids he will coach this summer.
Zach will be entering his senior year at Fresno State University this fall, where he is majoring in sociology, minoring in criminology, and also receiving a certificate in applied research. However, he strives to have a fantastic time with MSC this summer.
