Emily Kustka Head Coach

Hi! My name is Emily Kustka. This will be my fourteenth season on Highcroft Hurricanes, and I was a year round swimmer with RSA for 8 years. I’m so excited for this season- it’s sure to be filled with lots of laughs, hard work, and team spirit!  I’m graduating from Panther Creek High school this year, and next year I will be a freshman EC Scholar at ECU, studying social work.   Over the summer, I’m always having fun with kids- usually at the pool. I love to coach Highcroft as well as give private lessons. When I’m not at the pool, you can probably find me baking, babysitting, or volunteering.  This summer is going to be so much fun! Get ready for lots of cheering and spirit!

See you at the pool,  Coach Emily

Victoria Plant Coach

My name is Victoria Plant. I am a rising 9th grader at Green Level High. This year will be my 5th season with the Hurricanes and my 2nd with RSA, a year round swim team in the area. I want to be a coach for HHST because I love being a part of the fun and team spirit that reappears every season. When I’m not at the pool, I can be found doing something artistic or baking, usually something chocolate!
