2019 Bowman Woods Barracuda Swim Coaches

     Mike Gerken

I work for KCRG-TV9 as a Production Director.  I swam for Jefferson for 4 years and then proceeded to swim for Loras College.  I am a Cedar Rapids native.  My favorite color is red and my favorite food is pasta.  My favorite team is the Green Bay Packers.  (sounds like there might be a rivalry between the Mikes this year!)   Here's what I want to tell our team - 'Get ready for a fun summer in the pool!'

     Michael Lindeman

Michael comes with extensive swimming and coaching experience.  He has been a trial attorney in Cedar Rapids for the last 22 years. His practice includes family law, criminal defense, juvenile law and personal injury. Michael was born and raised in Waterloo, IA, and started competitive swimming when he was 5 years old. He swam through high school and qualified to the state swim meet all 4 years.

He has lived in Cedar Rapids since 1993, and currently enjoys participating in triathlons, and completed his one and only Ironman in Couer d' Alene, Idaho in June, 2012.

Michael is a Hawkeye fan and alumni of University of Iowa. He attended law school at Marquette University in Milwaukee WI.

He got involved in coaching because of his daughter Olivia, and is excited to continue coaching. Michael's goal for the swimmers this summer is a modest one: swim their fastest times by the city swim meet. His message to the members would be to always set goals, and even though these goals might not always be met, continue to strive to do their best.
