Jake Lewing begins his first season with the Old Dominion University swimming and diving program.
“We are very excited to welcome Jake to the Monarch family. His competitive knowledge and experience will be a tremendous asset to our program and we look forward to having him on deck,” Withus said.
Lewing comes to Old Dominion after spending the last two seasons as an assistant coach at the University of Mary Washington. Lewing helped Mary Washington send a school record 10 swimmers to the 2012 NCAA Championships. UMW sophomore Alex Anderson won the NCAA National Championship in the 400 IM and set a new national record.
A graduate of Denison University (Ohio), Lewing was a four-year NCAA Qualifier and a 12-time All-America honoree. He helped lead Denison to the 2011 Division III National Championship.
“I am excited to be joining the staff at ODU and look forward to working with a great team,” Lewing said.
