We are preparing for another amazing swim season with the Lake Olympia Tiger Sharks! We are proud to announce that this year, the Tiger Sharks will be coached by Madison Gabino.
Coach Madison Gabino is new to the Tiger Sharks but has been involved in summer swim league from age 5. Madison Gabino worked as a deckhand and assistant coach at FC Gold for 7 years (3 years as a deckhand, 4 years as an assistant coach) where she built lasting memories. Madison graduated in May of 2021 from Rice University with a Bachelors in Spanish Literature and a minor in Biochemistry. She is currently teaching precalculus and coaching swim and water polo at Dulles High School, her alma mater. While at Rice University, Madison worked as part of Rice University EMS serving in roles such as Education Assistant and later as Education Lieutenant on the leadership team. Madison attended Dulles High School where she was also a member of the swim team, served as Captain her Junior year, and was part of the State team for Academic Decathlon. Coach Madison is very excited to return back to the summer swim league as a Tiger Shark and looks forward to a wonderful first summer at LOST!
Deck hands are unpaid high school students who volunteer their time to assist our coaches on the deck and help set up and tear down for practices and meets. We love our deck hands!
