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!”

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!
