Assistant Coach | 6th Season
Georgia | 2002
After joining the TCU coaching staff in the summer of 2007, Keegan Ingelido will begin her sixth season as a Horned Frog assistant coach this season. Ingelido became a member of the Purple and White staff on June 22, 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 Horned Frog women, Ingelido has been crucial in the recent success of the TCU women's program. Her work helped lead Sabine Rasch to an MWC title in 2011 and to the NCAA Championships in 2012. In the past two seasons, the TCU women have broken 31 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 championship 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.
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.
