Dive Team Coaching Staff

Kristen Ritz

Head Coach

Welcome to the Dive Team! I have been coaching the Dive Team at St. Andrew’s since 2001. I am a math teacher at Severna Park High School and a mother of two little girls. I participated in many different sports growing up and played rugby for the University of Maryland. I started diving at 13 years old, which was the first year that St. Andrew’s had a dive team, and immediately developed a love for the sport. My favorite thing about coaching is seeing the excitement on a diver’s face when they finally got a dive they have been working hard to complete.

Ashley Diekemper

Assistant Coach

Hi! This will be my 3rd summer of coaching diving. I started diving at Saint Andrew’s when I was 9 years old and dove here until last summer when I graduated high school. While at Rockbridge Academy I ran cross country all 4 years and was the Captain my senior year. I also dove at Montgomery Dive Club in Silver Spring while I was in high school. I just finished my freshman year of college at Seton Hall University, where I am on the swimming and diving team. I’m really looking forward to this season!

Catherine Davis

Assistant Coach

Hi Everyone! I will be a freshman at Mount St. Mary’s University in the fall. I have been diving on the St. Andrews Dive Team since I was eight years old and coaching since I was 14. In my 9 seasons of diving for the team, I have developed a love for this sport that I have not had for any other sport. Along with Diving, I have played soccer since I was three and played on Archbishop Spalding’s Team for 4 years. I have also been playing the cello since I was 8 years old. Every year I make a countdown for diving to start; even at 18 years old, I still get as excited about the season as I did when I was a little kid. I started coaching and fell in love with it because I have had the opportunity to see kids learn while having so much fun. Like every year, I cannot wait for the season to start, and I look forward to meeting everyone!

Molly Feeney

Assistant Coach

Hey divers! I am a rising senior at Severna Park High School. I love diving and have been on the SASTC team since I was in 7th grade. I also dove for Retriever Dive Club’s Team and represented them at several regional meets. In addition to dive, I am also a member of the SPHS dance company and involved in many different clubs. I began coaching last year and I love being able to share my love for diving with so many kids! It is so much fun to watch their love for flipping and twisting grow as it did for me, and to see the excitement in them as they accomplish new skills and overcome obstacles they didn’t think they could. It’s amazing to watch them grow every day. Happy Diving!
