Ethan Eric Ripp

Assistant Coach

I was born in Black Earth Wisconsin, where I still currently live. I have been swimming competitively since my sophomore year of high school when I joined my schools swim team that co-ops with now both Sauk prairie and Lodi. I continue to swim after high school at Ripon College focusing mainly on freestyle, which is also my favorite stroke. At Ripon, I am currently a freshman intending to major in both biology and chemistry. After coaching for two years there are many things I enjoy about the position, however, the primary reason I enjoy coaching is being able to watch the kids that I coach develop as swimmers across my two years of coaching, and guide them through the critical years of swimming that I sadly missed out on when I was there age (I did out find out that swimming was awesome until I was a sophomore in high school).

Strokes/Skills Coach

Hi, my name is Torri Sampson Behn and I will be a volunteer coach this summer focusing on stoke technique.  I have previously coached for the Mazo Barracudas (2002 and 2003), Hill Farm Swim Club, Badger Aquatics Club and at the high school level, most recently at Middleton High School, where I teach math.  I have two sons Brooks (9) and Deacon (7) who keep me very busy during my summers off.

Mike Schultze

Conditioning/Competition Coach

Email

My name is Mike and I was born and raised in the Cross Plains, Wisconsin area.  I started swimming for the Cross Plains Stingrays at 8 and was immediately hooked.  That winter I joined the Mad-Town Aquatics (Now part of MAC) and began swimming year-round.  Through MTA I became  a National Level USS (Now USA) Swimmer in Butterfly. In addition, I swam for four years at Middleton High School. 

During this time as a competitive swimmer, I had the honor of being coached by some of the best local (UW-Madison Coaches and Swimmers) and national (Jack Nelson) coaches and their drive and dedication continues with me to this day. I have brought this drive when I have coached Summer Recreational Swimming, Club Level Swimming and Highschool (Girls) Swimming. As a coach, I feel it is my responsibility to ensure each hardworking swimmer gets the opportunity to succeed and enjoy swimming as much as I do. In addition to competitive coaching I was a lifeguard and WSI Swim Instructor. 

I have two wonderful children, Evan (11) and Annabelle (8) who decided to start competitive swimming last year and will be on the Barracudas again this year.
