Head Coach: Melanie Dupuis
William Annin Middle School
6th Grade Social Studies Teacher - Room 221
I am returning for my 16th season as head coach for both the Men’s and Women’s Swim Team and I am looking forward to another great season. I swam for 10 years on Scarlet Aquatic Club where I was a nationally ranked swimmer in the breaststroke and IM. I competed at nationals and held multiple state records. I also competed on Bridgewater-Raritan High School where I was undefeated in the 200 and 500 free and was County and Conference Champion and Somerset County Swimmer of the Year in 2002. As the head coach of the Ridge Swim Team I have twice won the Somerset County coach of the year award.
