JR. also swam for Fairview High School and for the Edinboro University.

For the last 23 years, they have coached the team to 19 District 10 titles, numerous region titles, four National top five rankings in the National Team Power Point, nine high school swimming All-Americans and a consistent winning record with sportsmanship and team cohesiveness as a top priority. JR. brings the same passion of the sport combined with his unwavering commitment to a positive and respectful team atmosphere to Lake Shore Country Club.
