Andy Zhu Head Coach

Hello Sharks family!

I am super excited to co-head coach this year with one of my best friends, Dylan Yin. I’ve swum with the Mountain Park Sharks ever since I was 7 years old. My favorite swimming memory was winning the 4x50 medley relay at High School State alongside Dylan Yin and fellow MPST swimmer, Joshua Kim.

I am a two-time team captain, State Champion, and a Gwinnett County Record holder. I’ve taught swimming lessons and coached stroke clinics at Gwinnett Aquatics for around 2 years (I also swim there year-round). Many of my greatest experiences have come from the pool, which is why I am thrilled to come back to where it all started as a Mountain Park Shark.

Out of the water, I am about to graduate as Valedictorian. I plan on majoring in economics at Washington University in St. Louis where I also hope to continue my swimming career. I like to do handstands and stay active in my free time. See you soon!

Dylan Yin Head Coach

Hello Sharks Family!

I am beyond excited to co-head coach this year with my long-term teammate and friend, Andy Zhu. I’ve swam with this team starting from the age of 8. One of my favorite swimming memories is winning both the 200 medley and the 200 free relays at the 2016 Summer League County meet. I look forward to winning more relays and individual swims!

I was the team captain my senior year of high school and a County and State Champion. Like Andy, I have also taught swimming lessons and stroke clinics at Gwinnett Aquatics for around 1.5 years. With this experience, there is nothing I would rather do than bring it here with me and pass it on to our younger generation.

I am currently a freshman at Emory University, looking to major in Chemistry. Besides being a student, I also swim for Emory. As a freshman, I have qualified for the NCAA DIII national championships, which is something that I worked all year long for. Throughout my year at Emory, I have gained so much experience from the intelligent people here, and I will continue to spread that experience. I look forward to an amazing and fun season! See you all soon!!

William Nguyen Assistant Coach

Hey Sharks!
I am stoked to be coaching this year with all of my friends. This will be my 10th season here with the sharks. Throughout the 10 years I was here, my favorite memory was when we won the 11-12 age group relay. We were behind for the first 3 legs and Andy brought it back with barely any wiggle room.

I am a County and State Champion similar to Dylan and Andy. I have worked with many kids helping to teach them how to swim and improve their overall stroke and technique. I want to help the younger generations be the new face of this swim team and produce many fast swimmers.

Outside of swimming, I am planning on majoring in biology at the University of Georgia. I also enjoy playing the drums and hanging out with friends. Hope to see you guys soon!
