After joining the TCU coaching staff in the summer of 2007, Keegan Ingelido will begin her eighth season with the Horned Frogs this season, her first as associate head coach. Ingelido became a member of the TCU staff in June 2007, after spending the previous two seasons as assistant coach at the University of New Orleans.
"Keegan knows what she's doing," Sybesma said. "She's been there and done that in terms of a good swimmer. She is learning daily as a coach, but we are also learning a lot from her. She does a really good job in maintaining our equipment and handling our business on the road."
Working primarily with the backstroke and distance groups, Ingelido has been crucial in the recent success of TCU. Her work helped lead Sabine Rasch to an MWC title in 2011 and to the NCAA Championships in 2012. In the past three seasons, the TCU women have broken 41 school records.
Ingelido swam at the University of Georgia from 1998-2001, helping the Bulldogs to three national titles. Ingelido earned All-America status 14 times and claimed the individual NCAA title in the 200-back (1:53.22) in 1999.
The four-time All-SEC First Team selection qualified for the Olympic Trials in 1996 and was a finalist in the 400 IM and 200 back events in 2000.
At the NCAA Championships in 2000, she swam the butterfly leg of the world-record setting 400 medley relay with a time of 3:57.46.
As an assistant coach at New Orleans from 2005-07, all swimmers under the tutelage of Ingelido achieved lifetime best times in every event during the 2006-07 season. Before her stint at New Orleans, Ingelido served as assistant coach with the Stingray Swimming USS Club in Marietta, Ga., where she coached junior national, national and Olympic Trials qualifiers.
Ingelido earned a B.S. in sports communications from the University of Georgia in 2002. The former Keegan Walkey, Ingelido was married in the summer of 2011.
