Grace Borgerding (with her dog Pip) will be coaching for the 2nd year at WSSC, as well as coaching and directing water ballet. I graduated from West High school in 2022 I will be graduating UW–Madison in 2026. I am going to school for clinical psychology (and hopefully teaching) in hopes of being a child/adolescent psychologist/sex and relationship counselor, and/or a middle school health teacher. This will be my 10th year of swimming at WSSC and my 11th year as a member. I swam for MAC (Madison Aquatics Club) as well. In the winter I coach the YDC swim team, along with teaching lessons and occasionally life guarding.
