Maddie Monroe
Swim Coach
Coach Maddie began swimming and diving at Summers Port as an 8 and under and participated in the Sharks swim team until her high school graduation, helping the Sharks win the SWISA Conference Championship each year. Throughout the years, Maddie broke numerous pool, team and SWISA championship records. Maddie continued her swimming into the winter months, qualifying for multiple YMCA National Championship and four IHSA State Championships for the Alton High School Redbirds.

That ultimately led her to receiving an athletic scholarship to swim for the University of Arkansas Razorbacks. At the University of Arkansas, she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering as well as minors in Physics and Mathematics. At Arkansas, Maddie qualified for the NCAA Championship three times and upon graduation held six school records while also being named to the CSCAA Academic All-American team three times. Maddie resides in Godfrey and currently works at Counsilman-Hunsaker, a nation leading aquatic design and engineering firm, as a Project Manager.

In her spare time, Maddie enjoys spending time with her family and her dog Mia, as well as working out at Iron House CrossFit in Godfrey. Coach Maddie can't wait to get back out on the pool deck with all of our Shark swimmers for another great summer!
Chloe Bayer
Dive Coach
This is Coach Chloe’s first year working as a dive coach and she is beyond excited!

Coach Chloe said, “I know this will be a great season and i look forward to meeting all the divers. I actually began diving when I was five years old here, at Summers Port!” Chloe loved diving as a child and it helped credits it with helping her grow in confidence and perseverance.

Chloe dove for many seasons as a Shark and the Alton Redbirds until her senior year (2020).

Chloe said diving helped her in cheerleading and she lettered in cheerleading three years at AHS. Chloe is currently a collegiate athlete at Mckendree University as part of the competitive cheer team.
