Coach Biographies

Terry Depew  Head Coach,  Lead 15-18 and 9-10

   Coach Terry or Coach T is thrilled to be on the deck for her fourth season as head coach of the Aqua Knights. A lifelong learner of the sport, she has coached high school, age group, and summer league before stepping away from the deck and becoming a spectator to watch her two sons compete in college swimming. She returned to the deck to help rebuild the Aqua Knights swim program.

   She loves to help swimmers grow into the sport whether they're cross-training, competing, learning new strokes and distances. She enjoys getting to know all her swimmers and helping them improve in and out of the pool. In Coach Terry's free time, you can spot her kayaking or stand up paddleboarding around the lake. She has been a bridal seamstress for over 30 yrs. and is an avid gardener. 

 

Heather Roberts    Head Coach, Lead 13-14

   Coach Heather lives in Glasford with her husband, Aaron, and two kids, Vance and Ronee. She grew up in Lake Camelot swimming for the Aqua Knights! Then in 1999-2000 came back as head coach for a few seasons. Now is back for her 4th year with Coach Terry! When it’s not swim season, she teaches 4th grade at Illini Bluffs.  Coach Heather is so excited to see all the returning swimmers and anxious to meet new swimmers!! 

 

Alana Robertson   Assistant Coach, Lead 11-12

  Coach Alana has been a part of the Aqua Knights Swim Team for six years and this will be her fourth year as a coach for the program. She is passionate about teaching and encouraging the kids and watching them grow and thrive in each aspect of life. On top of coaching, she is also a lifeguard here in Lake Camelot. When she is not at the pool, she loves to play volleyball, spend time in nature, and go on adventures with her friends. Alana will be attending Monmouth College starting in the fall of 2022. Go Aqua Knights!!

 

Addy Roberts Assistant coach, Lead 8 >unders

   Coach Addy will be coaching her second year with the Aqua Knights. She graduated this past spring from Illini Bluffs.
