Riley McCallister

I just finished my freshman year at Appalachian State University, where I am majoring in Nutrition and Dietetics. Roll Neers!

 

I have been swimming a total of 14 years, eight of which have been with the Oak Ridge Swim Team. I graduated from Northwest High School where I swam on the varsity swim team for 4 years and was honored with the position of captain.

 

In my free time, I love to be outdoors and go for hikes and of course hangout with my friends! I co-founded the volunteer coaching program here at ORSC along with my fellow assistant coach Claire Jacoby, and am so grateful to have been able to watch it flourish!

 

I am so beyond thrilled to be back for my fourth year as assistant coach! I look forward to a fantastic season and to share the sport I love with all of my fellow ORCAS!

I am an Honors student at Meredith College. I am a freshman and am majoring in Business Marketing, along with double-minoring in Graphic Design and Italian.

 

I love whales, traveling, exercising, and spending time with friends and family! I am so excited to help the swimmers continue to improve and have fun!
