I started swimming for HYAC when I was 5 years old and continued on with the team until I graduated high school.  As a member of HYAC I swam in All-Star meets, Zones, Region VII and Junior Nationals.  I have made lifelong friends through swimming all over the state and country.  While in high school I was state champion in the 200 Free in 1999.   After high school I swam for the University of South Dakota for four years where I competed in the North Central Conference and swam at NCAA Div. II nationals.  My wife, Whitney, and I moved back to Hastings in 2012 to be closer to family and then were asked to coach HYAC.  We have enjoyed this new challenge of coaching and are looking forward to helping in the continued success of HYAC.  I am very happy to giving back to the team that got my life in swimming started.  I am looking forward to helping our swimmers having success and the great experiences that come with competitive swimming.
