Illinois High School State Champion Diver Jane Riehs (2021) Headed to San Diego

Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

Jane Riehs from Naperville, Illinois has signed a National Letter of Intent to dive at the University of San Diego, a Division I school in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation.

Riehs was a member of the class of 2021 at Neuqua Valley High School, whose seniors won three Illinois High School Association state titles in a row. While Illinois did not hold a state meet this year, Neuqua won the Metea Valley Sectional meet. The Wildcats broke school records in all but three events and were named virtual state champions by the Illinois Swimming and Diving Association.

Like many divers, Riehs began her athletic journey in gymnastics before transitioning to the springboard in her sophomore year of high school. She competed at the state meet in both sports that year, finishing 13th on the springboard in prelims at the 2018 IHSA Swimming and Diving Championships. Beginning in her junior year, she focused solely on diving and won the 1-meter diving title at the 2019 IHSA State Championships. She scored 450.75 points to dominate the event at Sectionals in the fall of 2020. She was also a DuPage Valley Conference (DVC) Diving Champion and the Illinois recipient of the Heisman High School Scholarship (one boy and one girl are honored per state).

She does her club diving with Dupage Diving Academy.

Riehs will have an immediate impact on the USD lineup, as the Toreros scored in the 1-meter, but not the 3-meter, event at 2021 MPSF Championships.
