He also earned accolades as Coach of the Year by the GCSL in 2003, GHSA Coach of the Year in 2005 and Cobb County Swim Coach of the Year in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2012.
He has three cats and a twin brother named Jim that coaches the Thunderbolts and at Duluth High School. Proudly married to Holly for 25 years, together they are raising two kind and respectful children in a son, Brett and daughter, Reagan.
Coach Mallory has been around the Stingray swim team since Coach Dave arrived. Coach Mallory was born in Savannah and moved to Lilburn when she was two. Her favorite color is blue and she enjoys all varieties of exercise. When alone in her car, she likes to sing badly to songs on the radio. She’s allergic to chlorine, latex and anesthesia. She began her career with the Stingrays in 1996 at age four and fully understands what swimmers experience at every level. Always ready with a positive word and a smile on her face, she likes 80’s music and is one of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. She is a school teacher in the Loganville school district, currently at Cooper Elementary. Mallory shares responsibility with Coach Sam of leading the team in Coach Dave’s absence.
Coach “Lex” joined the Stingrays at age six by invitation from her childhood friend and teammate, Katelynn Thomas. A PHS graduate, she competed as a pole vaulter on the track and field team and was captain of the dive team. An only child and lover of nature, she enjoys hanging out in her hammock with her eleven year old Dachshund named Lola. She would like a career as a behavioral analyst and, when asked, she thinks that it would take approximately 7.1 billion pennies to fill up our pool. A graduate of Coastal College of Georgia, Lex is a hard worker and she likes all of her vegetables, especially Brussel sprouts.
Coach Caroline has been with the Stingrays since she was 4. She is in college earning her degree in Youth Ministry while working with her youth group at St.Matthews Episcopal Church. She also works in Lawrenceville at Swanky Paws Pet Spa. I’m her spare time she is chilling with her two pups, Molly and Rosie.
