Coach McConnell is excited to build a quality program at Augustine Prep by helping those who are just learning how to swim, as well as those who are looking to compete at the state level. Mr. McConnell believes that anyone can swim and with hard work can compete with the best.
He has three years of head coaching experience as well as one year of assistant coaching at the high school level. He swam for UW-La Crosse for two years before leaving to become a head coach at Holmen-Onalaska.
His proudest moment of coaching was when 18 of 19 swimmers set personal records at his final sectional meet, and the many accomplishments his swimmers have achieved outside of the pool.
