Meet Our Coaches...
Hello Barracuda Nation! My name is Nicole Albrecht and I am the head coach for the Summer 2017 season. I grew up in Lawrenceville, Georgia where I swam competitively for Swim Atlanta for many years. My favorite events to swim were the 500 freestyle and 200 breaststroke! I helped coach the Chateau Elan Swim Team for three summers and taught swim lessons through Swim Atlanta as well. Currently I am teaching 7th grade science at Isle of Hope School. I am looking forward to a great season filled with best times and fun!
My name is Townley Smith and I have coached for the Barracudas since 2011. I currently teach Mathematics at Islands High School and coach Cross Country and Track and Field. I moved to Savannah, Georgia in 2007 after graduating from The Ohio State University. I grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio where I swam competitively through high school. I life guarded and taught swimming lessons in Shaker Heights, Ohio throughout high school and college and also coached the Chatham County High School Swim team for five years. I look forward to seeing our returning swimmers this summer and meeting all of our new swimmers too.
