Coach Kara

​“Hello everyone! I’m Kara Mathes and this will be my first season as a coach for the Barracudas.  I will be graduating from Panther Creek High School this June and attending Hamilton College in New York this fall.  I swam as a Barracuda in the team’s inaugural season and for a few seasons after that.  I swam for North Carolina Aquatic Club (NCAC) for 9 years and Panther Creek for all 4 years of high school.  I am also currently a volunteer assistant coach for NCAC.  I am super excited to be a part of the barracudas again this year and can’t wait for an awesome season!”

If additional lessons are desired, please email, one of the coaches will respond and set up days/times/costs with you.

Coach Sean

Hello, my name is Sean Nadasky!  I am currently attending the University of North Carolina at Asheville.  I have been swimming since I was very young, and have swam for the Barracudas since it's inaugural season.  This will be my second year on the coaching staff and I am looking forward to a fun season.

Head Coach Lianna

Hey swimmers and families!  My name is Lianna Demko and I attend Appalachian State University as an Exercise Science major.  After undergrad, I am hoping to go to graduate school for Physical Therapy.  I began swimming the summer of 2008 at the age of ten when I joined Weldon Ridge in its first year.  I also spent three years swimming year round for NCAC and swam for Panther Creek HS all four years.  This is my fifth year coaching and I am excited to be back!
