BOSTON – Northeastern Swimming and Diving head coach Roy Coates has added Katie Rivers to the coaching staff for the upcoming 2022-23 season.

“I am thrilled to have Katie join our staff,” said Coates. “She adds tremendous energy, passion, and knowledge of swimming to our team. I look forward to working with Katie to provide our squad a successful experience both in and out of the pool.”

A Charlotte, N.C. native, Rivers graduated from the University of Vermont in May of 2021 with a major in Political Science and a minor in Statistics, before getting her master’s in Public Administration in May of 2022.

She was a member of the Swim and Dive team with the Catamounts for four years, and was the team captain during her senior season.
