Konrad Plomedahl
Head Coach

My name is Konrad Plomedahl, and I am very excited to be coaching again with 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 6 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 4 events (200 medley relay, 200 free relay and 400 free relay, and 100 fly). I am a current member of the UWEC Swim and Dive team. At the 2016-17 Conference meet, I received 8th place in the 100 fly, and 7th place in the 200 fly. I was also recently selected as a team captain for this upcoming season. I am very proud of my accomplishments as a swimmer, and I hope that I can help all the swimmers this season gain the same sense of pride in swimming as I have.

This will be my 4th 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 am currently the Head Coach for the Sun Prairie Mini Piranha program. I also have taught many swim lessons and stroke refinement classes.

I am very excited to get to know all of you this season! Get ready for a fun summer!!

Kalie is super excited to be part of our Piranha family. She began her swimming career when she was in elementary school swimming for the Pottawatomi Porpoises summer team. Then is 6th grade she started swimming competitively for the St. Charles Swim Team in Illinois. As part of the St. Charles Swim Team she qualified for Regionals and was a finalist in the mile (4th place) and 1000 Free (7th place). She then was a four-year varsity letter winner, IHSA Upstate Eight Academic All-Conference winner for 3 years, and varsity captain her Senior year at St. Charles High School.

When Kalie was a sophomore in high school she started lifeguarding and teaching swim lessons both as a group lesson or a private lesson. As a swim lessons instructor Kalie has worked with all ages from preschool to college level, and all abilities from beginner to experienced. You may see her at the YMCA in Sun Prairie lifeguarding and teaching swim lessons, where she has been for 4 years.

Kalie started coaching during her sophomore year of high school. She started as a volunteer coach for a Special Olympic Swim Team (Fox Valley Special Recreation Association) and learned new ways of teaching each stroke for all abilities so everyone can understand. She coached for this team for three years. During her Junior year of high school, she started to coach for the ST. Charles Swim Team: non-competitive branch as an assistant coach. Here she coached for 2 years both the 8 and under team and the 9 and up team. Then in May 2016 Kalie got USA Swimming Certified as a coach and started coaching for DFAC as an assistant coach for 9-13 year old's, middle school and high schoolers. Kalie is currently a lead coach for the beginner 9-13 year old team on DFAC.

As well as coaching, Kalie is currently attending UW Madison. Her major is Elementary Education and History with hopes of going into graduate school for Secondary Education (she can't decide who she wants to teach yet). But her dream growing up was to become a History Teacher and also a Swim Coach.
