Carl Samuelson Looks Back on Forging Williams College Women's Swimming Program

WILLIAMSTOWN — When recent Williams College Head Swim Coach Steve Kuster returns home from coaching in the 2016 Rio Olympics, he’ll likely be greeted early on by a man who helped pave the way for Kuster and recent graduate Faye Sultan to travel to Brazil.

With a recent move to Sweetwood Retirement Living Community in Williamstown, legendary Ephs coach Carl Samuelson has remained in the vicinity of the school at which he forged a women’s swimming program. A program that Olympic 50-meter swimmer Sultan has called her academic and collegiate swimming home the last four years. A program that Kuster took over from a retiring Samuelson in 1999.
