Tucker Cera

Assistant Coach

My name is Tucker Cera and I just finished my first year at Washington University in St. Louis studying mechanical engineering and running cross country and track.  Before picking up running, I swam year round for many years for the Marlins of Raleigh. This will be my 13th season with the sharks as a swimmer, my third season as a coach, and sadly my last as a swimmer. I am very excited to come back to Raleigh this summer for another great season! Go sharks!

Alicia Carlson

Assistant Coach

Hello, my name is Alicia Carlson. I am a senior at Sanderson High School and will be attending East Carolina University in the fall, majoring in Exercise Physiology with plans to be a Physical Therapist. I have been swimming since I was 10 years old, beginning with summer league for the Hasentree Hammerheads as well as year-round with the Marlins of Raleigh until I was 15. I also swam for Sanderson High School all four years and played golf, which I really enjoyed. I continue to stay involved with swimming as an assistant coach for the Marlins of Raleigh, coaching the 8 and unders and the 11-12 year old groups. As some of you may remember, I was a lifeguard at Bedford and an Assistant coach for the Bedford Sharks last year. I am excited about this upcoming season and can’t wait to be a part of the team! Go sharks!!
