Coaching Staff:
Head Coach: 
Alex DiPalma - Current NWAA Assistant Coach - She was the lead coach of our most beginner group this year and produced the first two state qualifiers out of that group in 5 years. One girl broke two 8&under records that were almost 20 years old. She also was the top assistant for the group directly above that group and our age group team won the Arkansas Swimming Age Group Championships for the first time in program history this year. Alex also works at Mary Mae Jones Elementary. She is amazing with kids! 
Assistant Coaches:
Brooke Holley is returning for her 3rd year. Brooke is a graduate of NWAA and was a member of 4 consecutive State Championship teams for BHS. She is finishing her freshman year at Alabama.
Maiya Boskus is returning for her 2nd year. Maiya decided not to swim in college, but qualified for junior nationals in one of her final swims of this past season, so she is going to finish out her career with attending that meet this summer. 
Jenna Gogel is returning for her 2nd year. Jenna placed in the top 5 at the Region VIII Sectional Championships in numerous events and is 1.29 off of the Olympic Trial qualifying time in the 100 meter breaststroke.
Dhane Boskus will be in his first year, but we felt that we needed a male on the staff. Dhane placed 2nd in the Arkansas HS State meet in the 500 Free as a freshman and nearly qualified for junior nationals. He missed it by .04.
