Protestors want swim coach reinstated

Members of a Northern York County YMCA swim team are looking for answers after their head coach was abruptly fired.

Swimmers and their parents protested outside of the YMCA in Biddeford with signs that said “Bring Back Zach.”

Zach Gray was head coach of the Manta Ray swim team for two years, but was let go on Tuesday. Those protesting say they believe Zach was fired for petty reasons, and say he has been nothing but an asset to the team.

In a statement, the officials from the YMCA thanked Zach for his two years of service to the organization, but said they could not comment any further because personnel matters are confidential by law.
