We are happy to announce that Drew Wilson has been named as the new Head Coach of the Rock Island County Orcas Swim Club. Drew has been with us for the last two years and the board is excited about the immediate and long-term future of the club.
Coach Drew has been swimming since he was 4 years old. He did not officially begin competition swimming until 2002 when he joined the Fort Zumwalt South High Bulldog Swim Team. He was a member of the team for 2002 and 2003. Both years he competed, he helped the Bulldogs maintain an undefeated record which the Bulldogs held for 8 years. He helped them continue their dominance of winning the Gateway Athletic Conference every year for 8 years. He also qualified for state in Missouri, both 2002 and 2003, for 50 Freestyle, 200 Relay Teams, and 400 Relay Teams. After both seasons, Coach Drew was unanimously voted by his peers and coaches as the Most Improved Swimmer.
