Hi! My name is Konrad Plomedahl, and I am very excited and honored to be coaching for the Piranhas this season! Here is a little summary about me and my swimming career:

I have been swimming competitively since 5th grade. I started swimming for the Sun Prairie Piranhas when I moved here in 7th grade. I swam a total of six years with the Piranhas. I also swam four years for the Sun Prairie High School Swim and Dive team. My junior and senior year I was captain of the High School team, and in my senior year I qualified for state in four events (200 medley relay, 200 free relay and 400 free relay, and 100 fly). For my college career, I swam three years as a member of the UWEC Swim and Dive team. I was on the Conference team each year, competing in the 50 free, 100 free, 100 fly, and 200 fly. I was team captain in my last season.

This will be my 6th season as a coach for the Sun Prairie Piranhas. My other coaching experiences include three seasons with the Sun Prairie Storm, two seasons assisting the Eau Claire Marlins, and I have been the Head Coach for the Sun Prairie Mini Piranhas program. This last year I was a volunteer coach for the Sun Prairie High School Girls Swim and Dive Team, and I was the JV Head Coach for the Sun Prairie Boys Swim Team.

I am very proud of my accomplishments as a swimmer, and I am even more proud of, and thankful for, the teams I had the privilege being a contributor of. I hope that I can help all swimmers this season gain the same sense of pride in swimming as I have.

I am very excited to get to know all of you this season! Go Piranhas!!
