Charles Albert Scribner
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
