Madison East has named Sophia Parr as its girls swimming coach, Madison East athletic director T.J. Rogness said Thursday.

Parr has made coaching stops with Boilermaker Aquatics (Lafayette/West Lafayette, Indiana), York Community High School (Elmhurst, Illinois), Elmhurst Swim Team and the Superior YMCA Whalers (Superior, Wisconsin), according to information from Rogness.

Parr replaces Caleb Cole, who had coached the Purgolders' team for the past four seasons.
