Meredith Bryarly is in her second season on the Yale staff. Besides her coaching expertise, as a Yale graduate, Meredith is also a valuable asset to the swimmers and divers on both the women's and men's teams when it comes to helping them understand the challenges and opportunities at Yale. Meredith was recruited to Yale by Head Coach Frank Keefe as a distance swimmer out of Conroe, Texas. Her success at Yale came in the sprint events. Her talent in these events is currently reflected in the Yale record book as she is the current school record holder in both the 50 and 100 freestyle events. When she graduated from Yale in 2001 with a BA in architecture, she was also the Yale record holder in the 200 freestyle. In 2001 Meredith qualified and competed at the NCAA Division I championships in her three events (50,100 and 200 Freestyle), placing 18th, 20th and 42nd. In 2001 she was named Ivy League Swimmer Of The Year. Meredith spent the years after graduation training for the 2004 Olympic trials with the national team champion Irvine NOVA Aquatics club team fin Irvine California. While swimming with NOVA, Meredith was a two time US National Champion as a member of NOVA's 4 x 100 Freestyle Relay. Still on her quest for her Olympic Trials cuts, Meredith returned to Yale in the fall of 2003 to train with Frank Keefe. During the following months she achieved her trials cut and then accomplished her goal of swimming at the 2004 Olympic Trials. In the fall of 2004 Meredith accepted an assistant coaching position at Yale. She is currently completing a two year set of additional classes to meet her pre-med requirements for medical school.
