Mathew Mixon Tapped New Sunkist Head Coach

Dear Sunkist Family,

We know you have been anxiously awaiting this announcement, and we are finally excited to report that we have hired Mathew Mixon as our new head coach to lead us into our BRIGHT future! Many of you know him already as you have seen him on the pool deck actively engaged with his swimmers and team at various meets. Mathew is one of the most beloved coaches in Mississippi Swimming. He brings much love, passion, and enthusiasm for the sport of swimming, and with it brings his belief in a strong TEAM first attitude. We could not be more thrilled about Mathew, his wife Lindsay, and his two little girls, Vida and Layla becoming part of the Sunkist family! Mathew’s “official” start date will be September 23rd, as he wraps up his commitments in Vicksburg. However, you will be seeing him pop in and he will be heavily involved in the planning for the future of Sunkist during these next few weeks of transition. Mathew also plans to help run the Sunkist Short Course Classic and be here to watch the swimmers compete, so he can get to know each one of them.  You will find Mathew’s bio here. I encourage you to read it, so you will see why we feel so lucky to have him onboard! If you want to reach out to Mathew and welcome him or if you have any questions, his email is [email protected]. It’s time to roll out the orange and blue carpet and welcome the Mixons to our very special swim family!
