Hello Travis Country Shark families! I am Coach Rachel, a long-time member of the TC community. This season will be my 22nd year with the Sharks: my 8th year coaching. I was born and raised here in Austin Texas. My passion for swimming began through summer league with the sharks at the age of 6 and continued every year until I could not compete. During this time I also spent four years with Longhorn Aquatics age group swimming, while also competing for Austin High. More recently I have been an on and off master’s swimmer with Austin Swim Club. When I am not coaching the sharks I am a middle school math teacher here in AISD.
Summer league swimming is about learning the basics and mechanics of the sport of swimming; improving strokes and personal times; and having fun in an encouraging, and supportive community. Please reach out with any questions you may have. I am looking forward to a fun-filled summer!
Hello! My name is Alanna Araguz. My family and I have lived in Travis Country since I was 4. My brothers and I have always enjoyed being able to join the swim team each year, meeting many amazing people along the way. This will be my first year working as a coach but I have been swimming with the TC Sharks since I was 9 and volunteering with the team since I was 13. During my time as a Shark, I also swam with Nitro Swimming and ASC along with the Austin High Swim Team. I am now attending college at A&M Galveston majoring in marine biology. Though there isn’t a swim team I am pursuing a scuba diving minor and have taken up surfing to stay near the water. I am very excited to be able to coach this year and can’t wait to see how the season goes! I hope to help make it as enjoyable for everyone else as it was for me.
Hey y’all! My name is Ella Grace White and this is my eighth year with Travis Country Sharks! I am a graduating senior from Regents School of Austin and am attending the University of Texas in the fall. Travis Country Sharks is the favorite part of my summer and I can’t wait to coach all of these wonderful kids!
Hey Sharks! My name is Genet Leeds and I have been swimming with the Sharks since I was 5 years old! I have been so fortunate to be a part of this team for so long. I’ve met some phenomenal people and even better coaches during Sharks. Right now I attend Austin High School and will be a senior next year. Along with swimming with the Sharks I also swam with clubs like Nitro and Austin Swim Club, as well as my high school team at Austin High, where I was the captain. I’m also a lifeguard for our neighborhood, as of last year. This Summer is going to be great and I can’t wait to get started!
Hi, my name is Logan Brossette. I have been a part of the TC Sharks family for 14 years. I joined the team when I was 5 and have looked forward to every summer swim season since. I am excited for my second season of coaching and so thankful that I can still be a part of such a wonderful community. In addition to the swim team, I have lifeguarded for two years in the neighborhood. I am currently attending Texas A&M University where I am studying business. I enjoy all things outdoors and anything that involves water.
Hi sharks! My name is Megan and I’ve been a part of the TC Swim Team since I was 6. I’ve been apprentice coaching the past 4 years and this will be my first year coaching. I love to swim and am currently on the Austin High swim team (go Maroons!). I enjoy reading, baking, snow skiing, and wake surfing (and swimming, obviously). I’m looking forward to a fun swim season!
Hi! I’m Coach Riley and I’ve been swimming on Sharks for eleven years and apprentice coaching since middle school. I’ve been living in Texas almost my whole life and in Austin since I was five. I’m currently going to Austin High and am on the Austin High swim team. In my free time I like hiking in the green belt, mountain biking, reading, and playing guitar. I’m so excited to be a coach for TC Sharks and for the new season!
