Jack was born in Raleigh, North Carolina but moved to Cincinnati shortly thereafter. He began his swimming career as a Wahoo at the age of seven and fell in love with the sport. He has been a year round swimmer for eleven years, participating with the Cincinnati Aquatic Club and the Indian Hill Wahoos.
Jack currently attends Middlebury College in Vermont where he has continued his swimming career as a Panther. He achieved an NCAA qualifying time in the 200 Butterfly at the NESCAC Championships in February and looks forward to continued improvement next season.
Last summer, Jack helped lead the Wahoos to a third place finish at the Seven Hills League Championships serving as an assistant coach. He greatly enjoyed spending time with the young swimmers and watching them improve. His favorite swimming memories are creating a competitive swimming league in his backyard pool with fellow club swimmers and participating in the Coaches’ relay at the Seven Hills League Championships last year.
Jack is very passionate about the sport of swimming and is excited to have the opportunity to lead the Wahoos this summer!
