Kelly Spurlock started her swimming career when she was in middle school and was a diver.  They needed a fourth for a relay one day so Kelly filled in and has been swimming since then.  At one point, Kelly held every single record for swimming for her High School, including diving, except one, the 500 free! She also swam for Clarence Swim Club.  Kelly was a 16 time All American swimmer at the University of Rochester. She was inducted into the Hall of Fame at Akron High School and at the University of Rochester.  Kelly earned a BA in Religion and a BS in Environmental Science while at the University of Rochester and went on to get her masters at the University of South Carolina in Chemical Oceanography.  But swimming drew her back in after her masters work was complete and she ended up coaching and teaching at the college level at the University of the South and Wells College, where she coached several All-Americans. Kelly also coached at the High School level for 6 years in both Virginia and California when she was also teaching high school math.  She coached several USA swim teams – one in South Carolina and then locally.
