My name is Rachel Aldridge and I attend Sam Houston State University majoring in Kinesiology with a minor in Health. This will be my 2nd year on the Barracudas, but my first year as head coach. I'm thrilled to be coaching for such an amazing team and community. I have been coaching swimming for about 7 years now. I have coached summer league for 4 summers, and coached for Katy Aquatics for over 2 & 1/2 years.
I started swimming at the age of 6 on summer league and continued every summer. I also swam and ran track for Katy High School. In the summer of 2015, I participated in TAAF which is The Texas Amateur Athletic Federation. I swam breast stoke, IM and 2 relays at the State meet at Texas A&M. I have been a lifeguard for 6 summers, and really enjoyed 3 of them as the Manager for Barker's Landing. While attending SHSU I have learned a great deal working with kids this school year as a Director at The Boys and Girls Club. I cannot wait start another fun filled season. Go Barracudas!
