Whitney Mitchell is very excited to dive into the 2019 Summer Swim
Season as the new MCST Head Coach. Whitney has 10 years of swim
coaching experience covering all age groups. She is currently
the Head Coach for Madison Academy Swim and Dive Team as well as a
coach for the Sea Dragons swim team under the Huntsville Swim Association (HSA) Swim for Success program.
Whitney is no stranger to The Rocket City, as she previously coached for Huntsville Swim Association and the RCSL Redstone Launchers, and also attended college here. Whitney has a B.S.B.A. in Accounting from the University of Alabama in Huntsville and is currently working on her MBA. Whitney is newly married and when she isn't pool side, she spends her time working as an Investigation Support Auditor for the Dept. of Defense, socializing with friends, traveling, and spending time with her puppies Chaco and Sonny.
Whitney brings her love for coaching and energetic personality to the pool deck in hopes of making this season great for our swimmers and parents! Go Hammerheads!
I am currently a senior in high school looking forward to graduation. MCST has been part of my life since the team began in 2009. I have been on the team as a swimmer, stroke coach, and junior coach and I look forward to my new role as an assistant coach alongside Coach Whitney! Thanks to the introduction to competitive swimming that the Hammerheads gave me, I started swimming year round with the Huntsville Swim Association in 2011. Since then I have qualified for state, regional, and national meets and was also selected as USA Swimming Academic All-American. I currently volunteer coach alongside my HSA and MCST teammates with the Showers Sea Dragons as a part of Swim4Success. Beginning in the fall of 2019, I will be attending the University of Wyoming as a D1 swimmer, Army ROTC cadet, and a student majoring in Construction Management. I am thankful for the friends I have made through MCST, and for the lessons I have learned about life through the sport of swimming; especially as it pertains to commitment, perseverance and determination.
Adeline will be an upcoming sophomore next year at The University of Alabama, majoring in Chemical Engineering on the STEM path to the MBA track. She began her swim career during the first ever season of the Mt. Carmel Swim Team and has loved being a part of the team every year since! When she was younger, Adeline swam year round at HSA for many years, served as a junior coach on the team for three years until she aged out of RCSL swimming, and also served as assistant coach on the team last year. She also was granted the opportunity to march piccolo with the MIllion Dollar Band at UA this past year and hopes to do the same again this coming year. She is extremely excited to serve her team as an assistant coach again this year and can’t wait to see all of the wonderful things the team will accomplish!
