Hello, My name is Greg Gassen, it is my pleasure to be your assistant coach this year. I am currently attending The University of Colorado at Boulder, and am going into my sophomore year there. I have always been around the water, having been with the Neptunes for the past 14 years. I swam with the ACES Swim Club from 2009-2016, attended Arapahoe High School and was a member of the swim team there each of my four years, and I am part of the club swim team at CU. Additionally, I am a lifeguard here at Cherry Knolls. This is my first year coaching the team, and I really hope that I can make a great addition to the coaching staff. When I'm not at the pool, I really enjoy writing and making music, as well as enjoying time with my friends. I look forward to another amazing season, as seasons always are around here. GO NEPTUNES!!!
Hey Neptunes! My name is Bria Busta. I have swam 13 years on Cherry Knolls and competitive swim teams, and four years at Arapahoe High School. I have taught private lessons to all ages and coached the last two summers. I fell in love with swimming my first summer on Cherry Knolls and look forward to sharing my love for the sport with all the kids on the team. I am currently working towards my doctorate in physical therapy at Maryville University in St. Louis. I also enjoy water skiing, snow skiing, tennis, and just about every sport out there. This summer I hope to help each kid accomplish their swimming goal while having a great time. I look forward to a great season and GO NEPTUNES!
