Coach’s Message:

I have been coaching at Campbell High School since 2005.  During this time we have built a program from 5 athletes to a Team of over 100!  We have successfully sent a strong contingency to the County and State Meets each year since 2005 and can only hope in continuing to do so.  At Campbell we understand that winning will be a challenge, individually, and as a Team; however, we will continue to make great strides in the sport.

At Campbell we have an excellent fusion between club and non-club swimmers/divers on the Team.  This mix has generated a Team attitude towards success and dignity.  We hold our heads up high and never lose focus on our goals as a Team.  We never retreat, we never surrender, because that is Spartan law.

Our story will continue to grow.
