Brinkema and Krogmeier named Coach and Swimmer of the Year
Holyoke turned heads with more honors after the Tri-Valley Conference Saturday, Feb. 4, when coach Aly Brinkema was voted Tri-Valley Conference Coach of the Year, a title shared with Windsor’s coach Amanda Schneider, and Emily Krogmeier was voted Swimmer of the Year for the conference.
