The Windham High School swim team welcomes new leadership in the form of new head coach Kyle Rasmussen to the 2015-'16 season. Bringing a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to the program, Rasmussen is excited to get started. He will be assisted by coaches Brett Turenne and Kevin Roy.
Rasmussen was born and raised in Wisconsin, swimming all four years in high school for a club team, and another four while attending Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. After studying Neuroscience and Psychology at Carthage, Rasmussen and his wife Sarah moved to Maine and he started graduate studies in Physical Therapy at the University of New England. While swimming and furthering his education, Rasmussen coached the Moho Gators Swim Team in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin.
"Swimming has taught me a lot of lessons in my life, and would like to be able to extend that to the student athletes at Windham,” said Rasmussen. “Athletic director Rich Drummond and the rest of the staff at Windham have been extremely helpful and supportive as I have started. My assistant coaches Brett and Kevin are great with the swimmers and bring excitement to each and every practice. We have a good mix of young and experienced swimmers this year. I have been impressed with their work ethic, leadership skills, and the atmosphere that they are able to create at practice. It is going to be a fun and exciting season as we work each day to improve."
