Patricia A Horton
Coach Patty began her year round swimming career many years ago, competing for the Ridgewood YMCA and then as a member of the Montclair YMCA Marlins. During her high school years, she was a four time NJ state record holder in the 200 meter breaststroke. Coach Patty was fortunate enough to attend Junior Nationals held in Lincoln, Nebraska during the summer before freshman year of college.
Coach Patty was a four year Varsity swimmer at West Chester State College (now university) in Pennsylvania. She was voted captain, by her teammates, during her senior year. She was also a member of the Varsity tennis team, and was a finalist for the Most Outstanding Senior in the Health and Physical Education Department. During the college summers, she coached both the Radburn Swim Team and the Fair Lawn Swim Team.
Coach Patty resurrected her coaching career in 2006 by working with the 8 and under age group at the Ridgewood YMCA Breakers. The following year, working with the 10 and under age group, she had many Y State level, and JO level contenders. For the next several years, many of Coach Patty’s swimmers became state champions, place winners at the Zones Championships, and ultimately some went on to YMCA Nationals.
Coach Patty is looking forward to working with the swimmers in the Tiger Group. GO SHARKS, SWIM FAST!!
