The 2019 Hillsdale High School Swim Season is Here!

The mission of this team is to guide you to becoming champions in life through excellence in swimming and teamwork. With that, the entire season is directed toward consistent quality of effort in practice, respect toward coaches, attention to individual and team goals, and strict regard to attendance standards. If you choose to be a part of this team you are making a commitment to yourself, your teammates, and Hillsdale High School. We believe that representing Hillsdale High School is a special privilege and we want all team members to share that outlook. We know that this season will be a unique and gratifying athletic experience of your high school career, and we look forward to a season full of hard work, accomplishments, and memories. See you at the pool!

Coach Mike is excited about the opportunity to coach swimming with his wife and longtime teacher at Hillsdale, Ms. Conrad.  He began swimming at the age of 6 and enjoyed summer recreational swimming for several years.  He swam and played water polo at Acalanes High school in Lafayette and was an All American in both sports including winning the North Coast Section meet in the 200 yard freestyle.  He has completed swims across the Golden Gate Bridge, across Lake Donner and Lake Tahoe (on a relay).  Coach Mike is looking forward to having a group of swimmers who value a team experience, having fun, working hard and helping swimmers achieve their goals.  Coach Mike had a great swim coach in high school who taught him much about swimming and life and he looks forward to giving back to Hillsdale swimmers.

Coach Conrad is also super excited about returning to the home of the Fighting Knights, this time as one of the Spring Swim Coaches. After teaching Special Ed and PE for 13 years at Hillsdale and retiring in June 2017, Ms. Conrad is anxious to be back on the pool deck with the kids, and very pumped about the opportunity to do so next to her new husband, Coach Mike. She coached volleyball, badminton and JV water polo while at Hillsdale, and at the same time participated in designing and implementing PE curriculum alongside PE faculty.
