CT Senior Championships
Coach Karen Roth has accepted the position of Assistant Director of Aquatics for the Regional YMCA of Northwestern Connecticut. She will be coaching and leading this team at the Canterbury School in New Milford. This is a very positive career move for Coach Karen and her family. Not only will she working full time, but have the opportunity to build a competitive swimming program in an area thirsty for a coach of her experience and qualifications.
I wish to thank her for her dedication and expertise in her long coaching tenure here with the Wilton Y Wahoos. She has been a tremendous asset to our program, and we all wish her the very best in her future. Luckily, we will see her regularly throughout the years ahead on various pool decks throughout the coming swimming seasons.
Her last day will be March 16th at CT Age Group Championships. So we have time to thank her for all she has done for our program and see her off on this next stage of her career. Please join me in wishing the very best and many thanks to Coach Karen!
