Wendy Ahrendsen has been with the Brookings Swim Club since the summer of 1998, and has served in various coaching capacities. Growing up in Manning, Iowa (a town of about 1500 in West Central Iowa) she began swimming at the age of 9 and continued swimming for a Summer League team (the Manning Sharks) until graduating from high school. After high school graduation, Wendy attended Wartburg College (a NCAA division III college in Northwestern Iowa) and received a bachelor’s degree in Math and Philosophy, followed by a Master’s degree in Mathematics from South Dakota State University. Although Wartburg did not have a pool, she continued to stay active in the swimming community by coaching the Manning Sharks in the summers from 1992 through 1997. Currently, Wendy coaches the Novice swimmers (silver and bronze groups).
