Riley Overend

Riley is an associate editor interested in the stories taking place outside of the pool just as much as the drama between the lane lines.

A 2019 graduate of Boston College, he arrived at SwimSwam in April of 2022 after three years as a sports reporter and sports editor at newspapers in Marin County, California, and Greenwood, Mississippi. He’s thrilled to be writing for an ultra-engaged audience while returning to a sport that he loved as a kid growing up in the Bay Area. When he’s not writing about swimming, he’s probably either playing tennis or making music.
