Sofia Portillo Head Coach

Coach Sofia and her two sisters were Wahoo since the founding of the team in 2010. For 9 seasons she was an All-Star Swimmer and at 13, she became a teen leader and instructor for our Learn to Swim program.  She was part of the consolidated Glenshire Wahoo team formed by joining the Wahoo to the Glenshire Gator swim team in 2014.  She has worked her way up as Junior Coach,  Assistant Coach and now as our Head Coach.  She follows the fine tradition of Coaches Richard Butler and Keith Teal teaching not only swimming, but being an example of hard work and dedication.  We can not be prouder and more excited to have her leading our swimmers.

Coach Johnny has been with the Glenshire Wahoo since the Glenshire Gators and Wahoo at Chancellors combined in 2014.  Before that, he was an assistant with the Gators.  He continues the Gator tradition of sportsmanship and team spirit.  His friendly demeanor wins the admiration of swimmers young and old as well as the respect of parents.  He is an Aggie most of the year, but returns each summer to mentor or athletes to improve their strokes.

Whitney Gee Assistant Coach

Coach Whitney has been a coach for the our team long before we were Glenshire Wahoo.  She started as a Junior Coach in 2009 when the children practicing at Chancellor's Family Center began swimming as the Manta Rays competing against the Glenshire Gators.  So much has changed, and Whitney was there for it all.
