Not Just For Sprinters: Derek Perkins Making Kentucky Swimming Well-Rounded

LAS VEGAS, Nevada, September 19. IN his second season at the University of Kentucky, Derek Perkins is attempting to extend his school's swimming notoriety beyond its sprinting prowess, and he talked about that in an interview with SwimmingWorld.TV at the American Swimming Coaches Association's world clinic.

Perkins, an assistant coach at Kentucky, discussed the implications of adding former distance freestyle ace Lars Jorgensen to the coaching staff, a recent hire that he said is sure to help the middle distance and distance program improve this season, as the men's team looks to move on from the graduation of star Tyler Reed.

More video interviews with coaches are now available on the ASCA world clinic landing page, including a conversation with Richard Hunter and Sarah Dawson, two assistant coaches at the Mission Viejo Nadadores, who talk about working with head coach Bill Rose and the impact Chloe Sutton's Olympic resume has on the young kids they coach.
