Treasure every season you have to swim – Scott Lemley

In SCB Pod by RITTER AdminLeave a Comment

Scott Lemley is a former swimmer for the Alaska Nanooks and is entering his 11th full season at the helm of the current women’s team and 15th year as a college coach including five years heading the Nanook’s combined men’s and women’s program from 1982-1987. He had started that program after the school had been without a swim team for nine years with the former NAIA team being discontinued in 1973 after just five years. He competed for the Nanooks as a student-athlete from 1970 through 1973 on the NAIA team. After a hiatus of eighteen years, Lemley once again built a swimming program from the ground floor. Since 2005, he has seen his squads improve steadily year by year and, in some instances, meet by meet. Nanook swimmers under Coach Lemley have had just as much success in school as in the pool being named to the Scholar All-America Team list for the 16th and 17th times for the fall and spring semesters of last season. Lemley owns a vast array of coaching experience at the club, high school and masters levels as well. He has a total of 37 years of experience as a head coach.
