2018 Coronado Girls Swimming Capsule


Head coach: David Stump, eighth season

Returning letter winners: Nineteen

Top athletes: Alexis Edmonds (Sr.), Anna Scott (Jr.), Gabby Wood (Jr.)

Outlook: The two-time defending Sunrise Region champions bring back 19 letter winners, but lost some key contributors from last season.

Edmonds (diving), Scott and Wood (both 200 freestyle relay) all qualified for the state meet last year.

“We are going to be a pretty young team this year,” Stump said. “We lost some major points to graduation, and we will have to see how well our underclassmen, especially our freshman class, step up under the pressure of regionals and state.

“As always, our No. 1 goal is to win regionals (for the third straight year) and place in the top three at state. It will be a fun season to watch.”
