Hello BOLT Families! My name is Liz Stroud and I am excited to be returning as the Head BOLTS Coach! As always, I am looking forward to an amazing summer with lots of fast swims and tons of fun…with a bit of hard work of course! For those that do not know me, here is a little bit about me: I am originally from Northern Virginia where I was an active member, whether swimming or coaching, of the NVSL for many years. As well as an active softball player all throughout high school. After graduating from the University Of Mount Olive, where I was the starting centerfielder on the women’s softball team, I moved down to Virginia Beach. I have coached softball at the middle and high school level for 10 years, and also coached high school swim for the past 11 years. I am married to a local chef and we are the proud parents of two amazing daughters, both of which are active members of the MIGHTY BOLTS! I look forward to meeting you all and here is to an awesome summer!!
