Danny Lynch

He has been a Swordfish since the age of five and has competed year-round since the age of nine (first for the Richmond Racers, and later for Poseidon Swimming). Danny is currently a sophomore at Washington and Lee University double majoring in Economics and Spanish. Also at W&L, he is a member of the varsity swim team and earned First Team All Conference his freshman year. Before W&L, Danny attended Trinity Episcopal School where he swam all four years. Sadly, this past summer he graduated from the Southampton Swim Team and is no longer allowed to compete. However, he’s super pumped that he is able to come back – as a coach this time – and may try and sneak into a couple of races.
