I first coached the Aquadillos in 2000 and have coached almost every year since then. That's over 900 days of multiple practices a day! I also coach with the age group team, Texas Gold Georgetown - both kids and adults. I enjoy helping both newer and established swimmers improve and enjoy the sport.
My first summer league swim team, at age 6, was the Braun Station Seagulls in San Antonio. After moving to Georgetown, I joined the Aquadillos as a swimmer. I have swum for AAAA, TASC, the short-lived Georgetown Area Swimming team (GAS), and the Georgetown High School team. During high school, I was the only male swimmer to make Regionals all 4 years and also was team captain my senior year.
At Trinity University I combined my years of competitive gymnastics with water and joined the diving team. After many flips, I graduated with a degree in Computer Science.
In the past, I coached the diving team at Southwestern University for approximately 5 years. In my spare, time I do handstands and read about computer security, but not at the same time.
Hello everyone, my name is Reilly Gilbert, and this will be my second year coaching with the Georgetown Aquadillos. I began swimming at the age of 6 with the Aquadillos and came back every summer after because summer swimming is FUN, and the Aquadillos are Super Duper and the MOST FUN! I am a graduating senior at St. Dominic Savio Catholic HS and have participated in high school swim three of my four years. I am a TAGS Champion, FUTURES finalist, Junior National Qualifier, and USA Swimming Scholastic All American. This coming fall, I will be swimming for The University of Wyoming in Laramie! It is a dream come true to become a collegiate athlete and it all started with the Aquadillos - every summer for 12 years! I primarily swim freestyle and butterfly, however, I enjoy almost every event including open water swimming. I love swimming because it helps me relax and has taught me the value of hard work. In my free time I am an avid cyclist and ultimate frisbee player, but I also love having down time and playing video games with friends or going out to eat (I LOVE Whataburger!). I am so excited to be returning for my second year as a coach and I cannot wait to see all the returning swimmers and meet the new ones and share my love of swimming!
Hey Dillos! This will be my 4th season with the Aquadillos following completion of my Junior year at Southwestern University here in Georgetown. I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Education degree with a focus in History leading to a career as a high school history teacher (and swim coach). I’ve also been a member of the Pirate women’s swim team the past three years during which I’ve been named to the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) Academic Honor Roll (2019, 2020), won 8 SCAC individual championships, SCAC Female Swimmer of the Year (2019), 2-time SCAC Championships Female swimmer of the meet (2018, 2019), and NCAA Division 3 Championship swimmer (2018). I’m also proud to hold 3 SU Pirate swim records (100 & 200 Breaststroke, 200 Individual Medley). I am a 2017 graduate of Georgetown High School where I was a 4-year varsity letter swimmer and Captain during my senior year. I enjoy swimming, reading, and spending time with my family.
Hi Dillo Families! My name is Maddie Mann and I love being a part of the Dillo family. I have been swimming since I was seven years old! I graduated from Georgetown High School in 2020 and actively participated in the varsity swim team all four years. I'm currently a sophomore at Texas A&M Corpus Christi. The Dillos is a great way to make friends and practice sprinting! My favorite part of this team is the friends and stroke improvement. This will also be my second year coaching for Dillos. I'm available for private lessons and my specialty is free and fly. In my spare time, I love to scuba dive, hang at the beach, and travel! I'm excited about the upcoming season! Let's make it great!
Hello everyone! My name is Abbey Smith, and I’m so excited to be one of your coaches this summer! I discovered my love of the sport when I began swimming as a young Aquadillo at the age of seven, and I haven’t missed a summer since! Swimming has taught me the importance of hard work and dedication, and I value all of the friendship I have made during my years as a swimmer. This will be my second summer as an Aquadillos coach. In addition to coaching Dillos, my coaching experience includes two seasons as the head coach for the Georgetown Special Olympics team, three years of swim lessons through the city, and one season of coaching the Summer Swim Team through the city. I am about to begin my junior year at Tarleton State University, and I couldn’t be more excited! I enjoy reading, doing homework, and spending time with my friends and family in my free time.
Hey guys and girls my name is Tristan Blount and this year i'm a senior in high school. So to start off a little bit my swimming career I have been swimming for 6 years now and two of those years was swimming for Aquadillos and 4 years on the Georgetown high school Varsity swim team and threw out my years as a swimmer. I have numerous awards, ribbons, and plaques. My favorite strokes that I like to race are 50 and 100 Fly and 100 free and my favorite relays are 200 medley and 200 free. Now a little bit about me I love all animals and my dream job is Zoology and my dream college has to be South Western or Baylor you'll also find me in my free time at any of the various pools in Georgetown having fun with my friends, training/practicing, or lifeguarding but you'll also find my at home watching youtube and hanging out with my family and pets. Even though I didn't do every year of Aquadillos it is what started my love and passion for this sport and I look forward to the future years not only my career as a swimmer but also a coach for Aquadillos.
