Sprague swim coach Kate Mathews at the CVC district swim meet at the Kroc Center in Salem on Feb. 10.

Kate Mathews had been out of work for almost a year and living in Alaska when she saw the posting for a head swim coach job at Sprague.

She saw it as the perfect opportunity to do what she really wanted: coach. It also allowed the 2013 Sprague alum to return to her hometown.

“Out of all the temp jobs that I would take this would make the most sense and be the easiest to come down for a few months and go back up to Alaska when the season was over,” Mathews said.
