Riley Lender - Assistant Coach
I go to South Lakes High School, I have been swimming since I was about 6 years old and I've always loved it. The coaches have always been people that I look up to and I want to do my part to be a good influence on the swimmers on our team. I also love the responsibility and knowing that I can help out as well as the fact that I have had such a good experience from swimming and I've made so many lifelong friends!
 
One fun fact about me is that I really want to go skydiving when I'm older!
