Audrey Welsh: Assistant Coach

How long have you been a Gator?  What was your best/favorite Gator memory?

I have been a Gator since I was in seventh grade, which would be seven years ago! I would say my favorite Gator memory was last summer when I sprayed Coach Kathleen with a water gun, but she thought it was raining. She didn’t think it was as funny as I did!​. 

What is your swimming history?  

I have been swimming for the past 7 years. I swam for SGCC and I also swam for Arapahoe High School. My favorite stroke is breast stroke, although my fastest is the 100 freestyle.  

What is your coaching experience?

! I have been a Junior Coach for the past two summers, otherwise this is my first time as a coach and I am incredibly excited about it. 

What do you most look forward to this season?

I am looking forward to meeting all the swimmers that I don’t know already and am excited to have a great summer full of memories!

If you could be anyone for a day, who would it be?​

If I could be anyone for one day, I would want to be Ellen DeGeneres.
