Patrick Bevan

Assistant Swim Coach

Hello, my name is Patrick Bevan. I am 18 years old and I will be a graduate from Seattle Prep High School on Capitol Hill. I will be attending Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska in the fall. Some of you know me from lifeguarding and swimming in the past. I have been a member here at Overlake my entire life and live at the pool in the summer. I started my swimming career at the Overlake pool when I was around 3 years old in the same group lessons we offer today. I made my way up to swim team when I was 7 years old and was a member of the swim team until I was 16 years old. I also swam for Bellevue club from ages 10-13. Once I became more involved with my main sport, lacrosse, I realized that I no longer had time for both. I did end up choosing lacrosse. I have also been a lifeguard here at Overlake since 2015 and have taught group lessons every year since then. I am very excited to become a coach for the first time in the swimming field and I feel that I have a lot to bring to this team for another great summer.

Sam Geffe

Water Polo Coach

Hello all, my name’s Sam Geffe and I am extremely excited to be the head coach of our fantastic Norwood/Overlake/Triangle water polo team!

Having gone through the progression from midlakes through high school, I’m thrilled to give back and contribute to a program that has been responsible for some of my fondest summers. Water Polo is an extremely exciting and fast pace game to play, but is also a great game to watch. Although it made my Mom a little too anxious when the games were close, every parent I know loves to spectate this awesome sport.
