Coach Dutton is starting her first year as head coach at Dana Hall, after serving as the assistant coach last season. Dutton has coached high school (boys and girls) locally for more than 20 years. She works with Masters Swimmers, professional triathletes, and fitness swimmers every day. She served for ten years as the Natick Girls Head Coach and is in her 11th year as the Wellesley High School Girls Coach. Most recently, her accolades include MIAA D2 State Champs 2019, Boston Globe All Scholastic Coach of the Year 2019, 2016, and South Sectional Champs 2018, 2019.
When asked why she coaches, Dutton states, “I coach because I love watching athletes (of any age) accomplish things they once thought impossible/improbable. Teenage girls have incredible resilience, and through sport they can become mentally and physically strong and they can learn to work together to build emotional strength. There is nothing better than that!”
Dutton has two children— one attends Wellesley College, and one recently graduated from Hamilton College. In her free time, she loves to read. She is also an ultra-marathon swimmer. Dutton is certified in lifeguard training, CPR/AED, ASCA level 3, ASCA level 5 Open Water, WOWSA open water coaching, EMSOA swim official, and is a USA Swimming certified Coach.
