Addie Rush

Head Coach

Email

I was born in Raleigh, North Carolina and have lived here my entire life. I just graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill where I majored in Psychology and minored in Speech and Hearing Science as well as Education. In August, I will be moving to Texas where I will complete my Master's degree in Speech and Hearing Science at the University of Texas at Austin. I began swimming for TSA when I was 5 years old and swam for a TSA team until I was 18, with eight of those years swimming for Bedford. I also swam for NRCA for two years, qualifying for states both years, and was a co-captain my senior year. I served as an assistant coach with the sharks for two years and this will be my second year as Bedford's head coach! I am excited to be back with the team for my fourth summer and look forward to another successful season!

I am graduating from Millbrook High School this spring and I will be attending Washington University in St. Louis this fall to study mechanical engineering and run cross country and track. I swam year round for many years before I stopped swimming so I could run. This will be my 12th season as a shark and my second season as a coach. I'm excited for another great season!
