This will be my second year coaching at PR! You probably remember me as coach Mary’s sister. I’m a student and cheerleader at grand valley state university and I’m so excited for warm weather, to be outside, and for a fun season!!
I’m a freshman at the University of Michigan and have been swimming for 8 years (all on Pleasant Ridge). I’m also a lifeguard here so you might recognize me. I can’t wait for a fun summer!!
Hi I’m Brynne!
This will be my first year coaching on the PR swim team, but I was a swimmer on the team from age 8 to 18! I have lived in Pleasant Ridge for my whole life, and am now attending the University of Michigan. I can’t wait for another fun summer on the PR swim team!
