Coach Lauren Bortnowski
Head Coach/Team Director

Coach Lauren Bortnowski Head Coach/Team DirectorCoach Lauren’s swimming career/adventure began with joining her neighborhood swim team at the age of 10. Though it was mostly just to hang out with friends, she quickly developed a love of the sport that just wouldn’t quit (and still won’t!). She went on to compete as a Texas High School 5A State and Sectional finalist before finishing her career at the University of Denver as sprint freestyle specialist and top three conference finisher. She has enjoyed many years of instructing swimmers of all ages and abilities, most recently fulfilling her passion for coaching as assistant coach for BSTC and age group coach for the Front Range Barracudas. Lauren loves challenging athletes to reach for and exceed their goals and finding ways to keep training fresh and fun. She could not be more excited to be returning this summer as head coach of the BSTC Sharks! ┬áLauren can be reached at 832-755-1818 or bstc.swimteam@gmail.com.

Her time with the Sharks spanned 9 years, after which she decided to join a year round club in Boulder, RACE, where she competed for the duration of her high school career. She swam for Broomfield High School as well, named on both the All-Conference and All-State teams all four years, as well as being part of the medley relay team that won a 4A State Championship and set a 4A State record with an All-American Consideration time. She now swims for Division II Colorado Mesa University where she trains sprint freestyle and breaststroke, and this past season placed 3rd at their conference championships. Currently studying Exercise Science at CMU, she will begin her junior year this fall. She is very enthusiastic to be assisting Coach Lauren this season, and to be back at the pool where her love for the sport began!
