Coach Erin

Erin began swimming on her neighborhood swim team in South Carolina when she was 7, and she loved it so much she decided to continue swimming year round. When her family moved to the Philadelphia area, she trained at Spirit Swim Club. She took a couple years off from club swimming during high school to get more of a team feeling. This was a great decision and made Erin see that she wanted to swim during college. Being on the team at UMBC for four years was a great experience. As a swimmer for UMBC, Erin had great success in the middle and distance freestyle events. Her two greatest moments while swimming at UMBC were breaking time barriers from ninth grade, going under 5:15 in the 500 free her junior year and then going under 2:00 in the 200 free during the last meet of her career. Erin can see swimming always being a part of her life and is really excited to be coaching two different levels this year (Age Group Yellow and Masters).

Erin is a recent graduate from the University of Baltimore School of Law, and plans to pursue a Master of Laws in Taxation. She graduated from UMBC May '08, majoring in Political Science and American Studies.
