Hi! My name is Colleen Henry and I am currently a junior at the University of Denver. I am studying Hospitality Management. This will be my 17th season with the Barracudas and my fourth on the coaching staff. I look forward to continuing to grow our Barracuda family. As head coach I believe that it is super important to make sure that everyone feels welcome and has fun. I am super excited to be back with the team this year. Go Barracudas!!
My name is Mikaela Kirton and I am so excited to be back with the Barracudas this summer! I am going to be a senior at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington this fall. I am studying Kinesiology and Psychology with hopes to become a Physical Therapist one day!
I have been a swimmer for as long as I can remember. When I was eight years old, I joined the Barracudas and have been swimming ever since. I went on to swim for Colorado Athletic Club and then for Aquawolves in high school. I was also on the Cherry Creek varsity swim team all four years of high school and went on to swim division-one for Washington State University and am still currently swimming for my school.
I was a Coach-in-Training during summer 2019 for the Barracudas. I have a passion for working with kids of all ages, which is one reason why I am so excited to be back! Get ready for an awesome season!
Hey all! My Name is Tori Franz and I am so thrilled to start our 2022 Season! I am graduating from Cherry Creek High School this May and will be Attending Grand Canyon University to study nursing with a focus in pediatrics and newborn care in the fall.
I have been a Barracuda for the past 11 years and it really is my favorite place in the whole world. I have continued my swimming career at Creek for all 4 years and I was even fortunate enough to get to swim with some of our younger Barracudas.
I am so looking forward to continuing to build this community as a coach and let each kiddo find a place that can bring them as much joy as I’ve experienced! I can’t wait to see all of the familiar and new faces this season, let’s go Barracudas!!
Hi! I am Tommy Toohill. I am excited to coach this awesome swim team. This is my 14th year on the Barracudas and my 1st year as a coach. I am a graduating from Regis Jesuit High School this spring and swim on their team.
My favorite things about the Barracudas are the team activities, meets and all of our traditions. As a coach, the thing I most want to accomplish this year is, regardless the level or talent, I want all of my swimmers to come out feeling like a champion. This team is something I look forward to every summer.
Hello! My name is Ethan Wu, and I’m one of the coaches for this swim season. I’ve been on the barracudas for around 13 years. I’m a senior at Cherry Creek set to graduate in May, and I’m considering CU Boulder or going back to Australia for college. I’m most excited to see the little ones grow as swimmers and win champs.
Hi! My name is Addie Heim. I’m currently a senior at Cherry Creek High School and I have swam on their team all four years. In the fall, I will be attending the University of Oregon to study Political Science.
This is my 7th year on the team, my first year as a coach, and I could not be more excited! This team has always welcomed me with open arms and I want to be the same for all the kids. I love being able to make connections with everyone involved from kids and parents to volunteers in order to create a true sense of community. See you guys soon and go Barracudas!!
