Hi! My name is Emily Kustka. I swam on the Highcroft Hurricane for fifteen years, 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! This fall I will be a sophomore 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
Hey guys My name is Charlotte Rose and I’m so excited to be Assistant Coach. I have been on the Highcroft Hurricanes since I was 5 and this is my third year coaching. I also swim year round for RSA and so swimming is obviously my favorite sport. Right now I am finishing up my junior year at Panther Creek High School where I also swim. When I’m not swimming I love shopping, babysitting and hanging out with my friends. I love the Hurricanes and can’t wait for a spirit filled summer filled with lots of practices and meets. See y’all soon.
Thank you, Charlotte

Hi, my name is Colton Wade, I am 14 years old, and I will be a junior coach this year. I have been swimming for as long as I can remember and last year I got the opportunity to be a volunteer coach for the Highcroft Hurricanes. I have been a swimmer on the Highcroft Hurricanes since 2008 and have continued every year since then. I have also been a year round swimmer for the past 6 years and absolutely love the sport. Last year I had a lot of fun coaching kids and I’m so excited to continue this year.
My name is Juyoung Park! I have been swimming for countless years and when I joined the Highcroft Hurricanes as a 7-8, I found my love for swim. Additionally, I got the chance to meet and spend time with friends over the long summer days. Since I was 11, I have been swimming year round at YOTA and my favorite stroke is backstroke! (Although it used to be freestyle.) I'm looking forward to another great summer!!!
Hi, my name is Jenna and I am so excited to be junior coaching for Highcroft this year! I was on a year round swim team, YOTA, for five years and I continue to swim for my school, Cary Academy. I also do cross country and track, so you may see me out running in the neighborhood. I can't wait for the season to start and I look forward to getting to know all of the kids
My name is Kaitlyn Eklund and I am excited to be a Junior Coach this upcoming summer! I am 14 years old and will attend Green Level High in the fall. I have been on the swim team since I was 6 years old and have done 5 years of competitive swimming too. Although I love to swim, coach, and have fun I have other hobbies too. I play volleyball on a daily basis, I love spending time with my family at our lake house, and I enjoy hanging out with friends and family in the neighborhood. I am looking forward to having a great 2020 season!
