Hello Baxter Barracudas! My name is Torri and I will be the Head Coach this season. I am new to the Fort Mill area, having recently moved down here from Ohio in 2018. I am currently a 1st grade teacher at Doby’s Bridge Elementary. I started swimming when I was 11 years old and swam through college. I absolutely loved my experience as a swimmer and am thrilled to be in a position where I can guide young swimmers and help them grow in their skills. I am looking forward to an amazing season and can’t wait to work with everyone! Go Barracudas!
Hi! My name is Vivian Knighten. I am the Assistant Coach this year. This is my fourth year coaching and my 11th as a swimmer or coach. I’ve swam for Leroy Springs and Fort Mill High School as well. And have coached for MiniRays and Leroy Springs. Expect to see me at the pool often as I am a swim instructor and lead lifeguard for the YMCA. I love to swim and hope to spread that joy to y’all.
I am excited to be working as a coach for the Baxter Barracudas and can’t wait to swim as a Barracuda for one final season. I have 10 years of swimming experience on the Barracudas and 8 years swimming for the Rays swim team. I also swam for the FMHS varsity swim team for 5 years and was a captain my senior year. This will be my third year as a junior coach for the Barracudas. I am also a lead lifeguard at the Baxter YMCA.
