The New York Times recently ran a nice article about Bruce Gemmell, one of the coaches of the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team in Rio de Janeiro and head coach at NCAP’s Georgetown Prep site. This article follows up on a prior article that the NYT did on Gemmell earlier this year.
Also, the Washington Post just ran a fun story about the remarkable success of the Leonardtown High School swim team as well as the newest member of the Stone Ridge High School swim team, Phoebe Bacon. The author of this story, Callie Caplan, apparently is the newest swimming beat reporter at the Washington Post, so be sure to follow @CallieCaplan on Twitter.
