Sarah Carr has been named head coach of the Cabrini High School swim team, as well as a full-time physical education teacher for the 2017-2018 school year.

“I am excited to join the Cabrini High School family,” said Carr upon the announcement. “I am grateful for the opportunity to take on not only the role as head swim coach, but also PE teacher. I look forward to working with the swim team to set and hopefully exceed both individual and team goals.”

Throughout high school, Carr was a member of the St. Mary’s Dominican High School swim team and was named captain her senior year. She was also the captain of the cross country and track teams. Carr began swimming at a young age and was also a member of the Crescent City Swim Team until she graduated in 2012.

After high school, Carr was a member of the triathlon team at the University of Alabama, where she earned her Bachelor of Education degree in Human Performance Exercise Science. For the past five years, Carr has also served as an assistant coach for the Crescent City Swim Club and as a private swim instructor for the USA Swimming year-round program.

“Swimming is a unique, fun, and rewarding sport,” said Carr. “The benefits of swimming and other high school athletics help to prepare young women for their futures. From the pool to the classroom, I hope to help students gain the knowledge about goal setting, time management, and exercising that will allow them to be successful in their time at Cabrini.”

Regarding the announcement, Cabrini’s Athletic Director Kirk Maronge said, “We are extremely fortunate to welcome Sarah Carr into the Cabrini family as a full-time PE teacher and as the new head swim coach. We think she will be a great addition to the school, and we are eager to get started.”
