About the Team

Menlo School swim teams have seen growth every season and continue to thrive in league competition and send swimmers to CCS. This season, Menlo had its first swimmer compete in the state meet and a diver qualified for CCS. The boys’ team won five consecutive Peninsula Athletic League titles from 2003 to 2007. In the boys’ inaugural season in the West Bay Athletic League in 2009, they won the league championship. The girls own two long league-win streaks: from 1986 to 1994 and from 1996 to 2006. Both teams now compete in the WBAL. The Knights consistently qualify 10 or more swimmers to compete in a range of CCS Championships events.

About the Coach

Laura Reynolds (first season)

Reynolds is well known as a longtime coach and leader of aquatics on the Peninsula. A USA Swimming Level II coach, she directed Woodside High School’s swim teams in 2010-2011 and 2013-2015. During that time, she was also the Wildcats’ varsity girls’ water polo coach, and from 2008-2017, she occasionally helped out with the boys’ water polo team. She was selected as CCS Honor Coach of the Year for water polo in 2013. The girls won three league titles and advanced to CCS three seasons under her tenure. Reynolds has also served as co-head coach of Menlo-Atherton’s swim program in 2012, and coached the PASA Swim Club, where she led swimmers ages 10-18. A member of the Brown University Hall of Fame, Reynolds was a four-year All-Ivy League and All-Eastern swimmer and competed on the 200 medley and 400 free relay teams at the NCAA Div. I Championships. She also raced in the 1980 Olympic Trials in the 100 butterfly.
