My name is Bryne Knowles and I am so excited to be your head coach this summer! I am seventeen years old and I am going to be a Senior next year at Cherry Creek High School. This will be my fourth year coaching for the Preserve Piranhas! I've swum on the team since I was 9 years old and am so excited to get the opportunity to both coach and swim another year on this team. During the rest of the year I swim for the DU Hilltoppers, and on the Cherry Creek High School Varsity Girls Swim team. Other than swimming, I enjoy hiking, biking, and skiing. My favorite subject in school is math. I love math and science. In the future I am thinking of studying to become a biomedical engineer. I am looking forward to another great summer of coaching and swimming and hope you are as excited as I am!
