Hi, my name is Lauren Neal (some may know me as Lauren Lassiter) and I am excited to be the new head coach for the Sugar Creek Gators. Swimming has been a passion of mine since I was 6 years old. I started my swimming career with the Pecan Grove Piranhas in 1996. After two years of summer league, I joined the First Colony Swim Team. I swam with FCST for 10 years and after I graduated high school, I went on to swim for Centenary College of Louisiana. I have worked with USS swim teams, summer league teams, and high school teams. I am currently the head swim coach at Clements High School. As a coach, I love helping athletes find success in themselves whether it is winning the heat or learning a legal breaststroke kick. I am looking forward to meeting the Gator family and having a successful summer season!
