Head Coach and Coach for 11-12, 13-14, 15 & over age group; Junior Seadragons
Coach Jen was born and raised in Southern California. As a true Californian, you will most likely see her in a tank top and rainbow sandals. Her love for the sport began in swim lessons when she was six years old. After trying soccer and tennis, she chose to swim because she didn’t like running, sweating and waking up early for lessons. Little did she know, swimming would make her do all that and more. Throughout her illustrious swimming career, Coach Jen was a distance freestyler, breaststroker and IM’er. She qualified for CIF (California’s equivalent to Districts) her senior year of high school in the 500 yard freestyle and just missed it for the 100 yard breaststroke. She also qualified for JO’s for the first time at the age of twelve during the long course season in the 200 meter breaststroke. At the age of eighteen she finished third in the 200 meter breaststroke, making the podium for the first and last time. In college, she swam for a Division 1 university for all four years. She retired from swimming competitively in 2009 when she graduated from California State University Northridge with her bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology. Though retired, she has always kept one foot in the swimming world. For the last ten years, she has been an official for the National Federation of High School Swimming, US Swimming, US Masters, and the NCAA.
Coach Jen moved to Ohio in July of 2015. The following September, she was hired as the Head Coach of Walnut Hills High School and was named Boys Coach of the Year for the Eastern Cincinnati Conference twice in the four years she coached there. She has had such a blast with the kids. Helping kids enjoy the sport of swimming and achieve their goals is such an amazing experience, one she wouldn't ever trade. This is her fourth year as the Head Coach for the Wyoming Seadragons and is so pumped up for the season! She is also received her Master's of Education degree from Xavier University in Coaching Education and Athlete Development.
Coach for 9-10 age group; Junior Seadragons
My name is Brianna Connock. I am 20 years old and going into my third year at the University of Cincinnati to study political science and journalism in the honors program. I have been swimming since I was 8 years old, first for the Cincinnati Marlins and later for the PCY Tigersharks. I swam for Wyoming High school's varsity team four years, am a four-time State qualifier and 400 yard freestyle relay record holder, and was captain of the swim team my senior year. I have been on the Seadragons since I moved to Wyoming at 13 years old. My favorite strokes are freestyle and breaststroke, and short distances are my specialty. I am always in and around the Wyoming Family Aquatic Center, I have been working there for six years and am currently the pool manager.
I absolutely love swimming and coaching for the Seadragons. Swimming has taught me the values of teamwork and commitment, and I love to promote a fun-filled and hardworking environment for my swimmers. Looking forward to an amazing season!
Coach for the 9-10 age group
I have been swimming since I was four, when I was younger I used to be called shivers because I was too cold to stay in the water and sat on the edge of the pool shivering till I dried off. I like candy and seeing hard work. Other than that I have 7 nephews and enjoy working with children.
I will be attending University of Cincinnati this fall for architectural engineering, I am currently about to go to regionals for pole vaulting, I also ran cross country in the fall, and the high school swim team. I was also involved in Boy Scouts.
Coach for 8 & under age group; Junior Seadragons
Hi everyone! My name is Sophia Dugan and I’m super excited for my first year of coaching! I just graduated from Saint Ursula, and I am going to the University of Dayton and majoring in civil engineering! I have been swimming for the seadragons off and on since I was 8, and I swam all four years of high school, both for SUA and for the Marlins. During my time as competitive swimmer, I had some amazing coaches, which is one of the reasons why I fell in love with the sport. This summer, I hope to bring the same passion and love for swimming to the pool deck that they did.
Coach for 8 & under age group
I am Spencer Boyd, a rising sophomore at DePauw University. I am on the swim team at DePauw as well as involved in two honors programs.
I grew up swimming at Wyoming and PCY and I am so excited to continue to share my passion with all of the children!
I will be coaching the 8 & Unders for the 4th season.
Coach for 8 & under age group
Hey everyone, I’m Jaime Donovan and I am 17 years old. My favorite strokes are the IM and butterfly. I am a junior at St. Xavier High School and truly enjoy the sport of swimming! I have been swimming for the Seadragons since I was 6 and the PCY Tigersharks since I was 7 where I competed in two YMCA National meets. Along with these two teams, I am also on the swimming and diving team at St. Xavier where we have the best camaraderie among a group of guys in Ohio, and I hope to bring this enthusiasm to the Seadragons in a fun-loving way to help everyone get to know one another better! This is half of my main goal to achieve this season; I also want to help the kids improve all of their strokes, but also have fun while they’re swimming to help them grow to love the sport as much as I have.
With all of this experience swimming in the water, I am eager to get in the other side of things and teach others how swimming is the best sport around!
Coach for Junior Seadragons group
Coach Margaret has been splashing around Wyoming for 6 years, swimming with the Seadragons, Wyoming High School and Middle School teams, and got her start as a Swordfish. Her favorite event is the 100M Backstroke, but she really, really loves coaching the Junior Seadragons. Margaret has coached
Jr. Seadragons since last summer and can’t wait to get back in the water with them. She loves watching them learn a sport she loves too and enjoys watching her Juniors make progress through the season. Margaret comes from a long line of fantastic teachers and coaches; she gets her coaching inspiration and motivation from her favorite coach…Coach Carrie.
Margaret will be a sophomore at Wyoming High School in the fall, where she is also a member of the marching band and Varsity softball team. Look for her in the flute section in the fall or at 2nd base in the spring. She will spend this summer swimming and coaching with the Seadragons, lifeguarding at the Wyoming Golf Club, and taking a trip to New Orleans with the marching band.
