Phoenixville High School Has New Swimming, Soccer Coaches

Alejandro Franco and Daniel Weinstein will take the helm of the respective teams.

The Phoenixville High School sports scene will have a pair of new faces in prominent roles this season, as Alejandro Franco has taken the helm of the boys soccer team while Daniel Weinstein will lead the swimming program, The Mercury is reporting.

Franco, who grew up playing soccer in Columbia and didn’t come to America until he was 23-years-old, takes over a Phantoms team that went 6-7 last season and finished second in the Frontier Division of the Pioneer Athletic Conference.

Franco, 44, is employed as an interpreter and has coached 10- and 12-year-olds for the West Chester United Soccer Club for the last several years. He says he’ll bring a more South American style to the Phantoms, but he calls taking over the team Ryan Bombick coached for the past eight seasons a “challenge.”

Meanwhile, in the pool, longtime assistant Daniel Weinstein has taken the baton from outgoing coach Ty Bailey. Weinstein, who’s been an assistant on the team the past five years, is a math teacher at the high school, a post he’s held for 15 years. He told The Mercury it’s been gratifying to see the program grow so much over the past few years, a process he hopes to see continue under his watch.

I didn't even realize Phoenixville High School had a swim team. Thought the swimming was through the YMCA?

The YMCA has a Y team for kids for all ages (about 6/7 up to 18). The high school team practices at the Y and holds its home meets (about 2-3 per season) at the Y.
