Hello Orange Hunt Sharks! My name is Connor McLaren and I am very excited to be your head coach this summer! This May I will be graduating from Virginia Tech with a Bachelor of Science in Human Nutrition, Food, and Exercise along with a minor in Leadership and Social Change. After college, while continuing to coach, I will work toward becoming EMT certified and be studying to attend medical school.
Before coming to Orange Hunt, I swam at Hayfield Farm Swim Club for 13 years and have been coaching there for the past six years. Along with coaching summer swim, I started coaching for Nation's Capital Swim Club in 2017 and will continue to do that this summer.
Outside of swim, I love watching or playing any sport and took an interest in sports medicine in college. Through this interest, I became an athletic trainer for the women’s soccer team.
I look forward to working with this passionate community and cannot wait for the opportunity to meet all of you. Being new, if you have any advice or more questions about me, do not hesitate to let me know. See you on the pool deck soon!
Assistant Coach Stephanie Chewning
I am currently a student at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida where I am majoring in Communication Studies with a concentration in Public Relations. I am also minoring in Critical Media and Cultural studies. I swam at Nation's Capital Swim Club, Lake Braddock Secondary School, and Orange Hunt.
This will be my 10th season among the Sharks and my 6th year on the coaching staff. In my free time, I love going to sporting events. I go to all of my school's events as well as all of the Capitals and Nationals games when I'm home. For this summer I hope to see a lot of personal best times as well as more team spirit and everyone rocking Orange and Black!
