Hi CCV Vikings! I am Kim Garcia, and I am thrilled and honored to be returning as your head coach for the 2019 season! Our accomplishments as team are proof of what can be achieved when an entire village believes in big-dreams, hard-work, and the possibility of accomplishing the impossible. I am inspired, and could not be more excited or proud to represent this team going into this 2019 summer season.
My goal this season is continue to help swimmers discover new areas of personal strengths, encourage continuous growth, and develop a sense of esteem toward achieving their own goals. I hope to find new and innovative ways to promote team unity through dedication and commitment. I aim to establish a cohesive team unit with a strong sense of work-ethic, pride, sportsmanship, friendship, and (of course) fun! I am fully motivated to do my best as a coach to advance this incredible legacy and to further the CCV tradition of excellence.
Hi CCV! I’m Molly Hittner and I am going to be your Senior Assistant Coaches this year! I started swimming for CCV when I was 5, and I am very excited to be coaching for another year. I just finished my senior year at Cherry Creek High School. I swam for Creek and had a blast, but nothing can compare to the Vikings. I have also part of the Choir program at Creek. I can’t wait for a great season! Go Vikings!

Hey CCV Vikings! I am Bryce Ortanes and I will be one of your Assistant Coaches for this 2019 RMSL season. I am a student at Cherry Creek High School where I have competed on the Varsity Level of the Boy's Swim and Dive team and made the State meet. I started swimming on CCV when I was ten years old in 2013. Swimming on CCV led me to start swimming competitively on Aquawolves National Swim Team where I have competed at State, Regional, and National level meets. I have had many wonderful memories on CCV and I can not wait to coach, have fun, and hopefully win Finals with you. Go Vikings!!

Hey CCV! I am Matthew Merkulovich, and I will be one of your assistant coaches for this 2019 RMSL season. I go to Cherry Creek High School where I will be a sophomore, and where I swam on the boys swim and dive team.
