Olney Swim Center (Tuesday)
 
Lisa swam competitively for local YMCA, summer and AAU teams while growing up in Pennsylvania. She hung up her suit after high school but got back into the water with the ANCMs in 2002 after watching her oldest son swim with the neighborhood team. She competes in local meets, open water events and trains for competition in triathlons. Lisa is a certified USA Swimming Coach at ASCA Level II. She finds coaching at Olney an interesting challenge, as there is a wide range of swimmers, including very accomplished swimmers, triathletes, and swimmers "returning to the fold" after a few years out of the water. She makes the workouts fun and challenging at the same time.
