Swimming and diving head coach Brian Thomas announced the addition of Wesley Mattice to the program’s coaching staff as head diving coach, according to a release Wednesday.
Before arriving at GW, Mattice was the head diving coach of USA Diving’s Junior National Team, and in 2015 he coached at the Pan American Junior Championships.
A graduate of and former diver at Southern Connecticut State, Mattice stayed local after college, spending five years as a coach at a nearby instructional diving program. He later competed at the U.S. Master’s Diving Championships in 2007 and coached at a dive club just outside of D.C.
Mattice joins two GW programs coming off of multiple seasons of improvement. On the diving side, a trio of divers qualified for the NCAA Diving Zone A Championships in March.
