My name is Christa Thompson, and I am head coach for Bixby Spartan Swimming. I am married and have three boys that keep me very busy. I have a lot of years of personal swimming experience. I started swimming when I was ten years old. During my younger years, I went to Zones for many years and Junior Nationals. I was captain of my high school team. I broke four school records and placed first and second at state all four years of high school.
I was offered a college scholarship to swim at Iowa State University. I was given a five year scholarship, which I swam for four and then worked in the athletic department the fifth year. During college I participated in the conference meet every year. I placed every year at conference. I had top records recorded at Iowa Sate, and was given the most improved award and most valuable.
I have coached for nine years in high school swimming. Six of those year being in Kansas City and Columbia Missouri. My last coaching job was the head coach at Bishop Kelley. I am really excited to start a new journey with the Bixby Swim Team.
