Lindsay’s swimming career began in the third grade when she tried out to swim on the Valley Dolphins Swim Team in Apple Valley, MN. Swimming slowly became a singular athletic focus and she eventually enjoyed a long and VERY successful USA Swimming career. Not only was Lindsay the High Point Winner at the Midwest Mega-Zone Meet, she also competed at multiple Junior Nationals Competitions during her career.
While swimming for Eastview High School, Lindsay competed at the Minnesota State High School Meet in the 200 Free, 200 IM, 500 Free, 200 Free Relay, and 400 Free Relay, achieving All State honors individually 8 times. In addition, she earned Eastview’s Athlete of the Year in 2000 and High School All-American status in 1997 and 1998.
She went on to realize her dream of swimming at the Division I level by swimming at the University of Minnesota. Lindsay had the honor to swim 4 years for MN coaching legend, Jean Freeman, who valued each swimmer as a person, and not just as an athlete. Lindsay also had the privilege to serve as a team captain for the University of Minnesota and earn a Division I collegiate letter.
Lindsay enjoys excitement that LSSC swimmers have for the sport. As a coach, Lindsay brings her passion and world class experience to the pool deck every day and shares her knowledge with LSSC athletes.
