Fairfield Fins Swim Team

Neighborhood swimming at its best since 1994




Morgan Oakley
I am very excited to be returning as the Fins head coach this season! I started swimming with the Fins when I was ten years old and swam until I aged out. I continued to be involved with the Fins by coaching during my high school and college years. In 2013 I graduated from UNC Wilmington in middle grades education and taught in New Hanover County for a year.  I moved back to Durham in 2014 and became a teacher for Durham Public Schools, which allowed me to continue coaching during the summers. I have taught at Lakewood Montessori middle school and am currently in my third year as a 7th grade social studies teacher at Neal middle school.  I was the Fins head coach in 2015 and 2016 seasons and am looking forward to the 2018 season!

Jenny Drury
Hi all, my name is Jenny Drury! I am currently a 16-year-old junior at Durham Academy. I have lived in Fairfield for my whole life and started my swimming career as soon as I was eligible to be on the team. I was 6 years old when I first started and have been swimming on the team ever since. As of last summer, 2017, I started to get more involved in the swim program. I was a Junior Assistant Volunteer Coach and this summer, 2018, I will be one of the Assistant Coaches. The swim team is a perfect way for kids to spend their summer because of how you make so many new friends while being able to have fun and be active. This upcoming season I am looking forward to being more involved, so I can continue to better the program and allow the kids to have a fun, memorable summer.

I’m Julia Phu and I’m a sophomore at Durham Academy. I have been swimming on the Fairfield swim team since I was 8. I was an assistant coach last year and I really liked getting in the water with the kids and helping them out. I love being on the swim team because I get to meet so many new people and I get to be a part of a big family. I have also been on my school's swim team 2 times and I enjoyed it very much. I am looking forward to meeting all the new swimmers we have this season and getting to help them improve their stroke and their speed!
