ERIN HARVEY | Head Coach

Hey everyone! For those who don't know me, my name is Erin and I am so excited to be coming back to Norwood for a second year of coaching!

I have been involved in the sport of swimming for almost my whole life, most recently competing for Oregon State University and Washington State University (Go Cougs!). I also hold five records for Interlake High School swimming, including the 50 Free, 100 Free, and 200 Free, as well as teh 200 and 400 Freestyle relays. You might think my favorite stroke is freestyle, but I love them all! I had so much fun with you all last year and I cannot wait for what's in store this summer! Let's go Ducks!

Hey Norwood! My name is Justine Fielding and I am very excited to be a captain again this season! I am 18 years old and I will be graduating from  Bellevue High School this June. Swimming has been a big part of my life since I was four years old. I started off swimming for Norwood as a duckling and have continued swimming for this team ever since. I have swam for the BHS swim team for the past four years, and I swam year-round for Chinook Aquatics Club for 10 years. I’m looking forward to another great swim season!  Go Ducks!!

He swam year-round with Olympic Cascade Aquatic where he competed in the 100 M Butterflay, 200 M Butterfly, and the 1500 M Freestyle at the 2019 Pacific Northwest Swimming Long Course Championship. As a freshman at Bellevue High School, Jude made varsity in boys swimming his first season, qualified for King Co. and District Champs, and was included in the relay team that went to State finals.

This is Jude's first season as an Apprentice Coach and we look forward to seeing how he translates his training and fun-loving energy into this leadership role.
