Picture: Katie Kopil (age 5) and Rachel Weitz (age 8) take a breather before their Tri-County relay in 1988.
Marie Haughton and Rachel Weitz were set to return as our head and assistant coaches but in January, Marie decided not to come back to Cherry Valley because of some family health problems. Therefore, Rachel will be moving into our head coach position. Fortunately, Katie Kopil has agreed to become our assistant coach while still swimming for the team. Rachel has just completed her second year at American University in Washington, DC. Katie will be graduating from Cherry Hill West in June and will be attending Princeton University in the fall. Rachel and Katie have a lot planned for this season, and hope that all the swimmers are excited as they are!
