Kate Rich, Head Recruiting Coach
Growing up, I spent a lot of time in the water. It is where I felt at home. From a young age, I knew I wanted to swim in college. After strong junior and senior seasons in the pool, I had a variety of opportunities to swim at the next level. Ultimately, I committed to Denison University, where I went on to pursue a bachelor’s degree in sports management. While at Denison, I had an incredible opportunity to be a part of Denison’s NCAA Division III National Championship team each of my four years. Over those years, I ended up being a 15-time All-American as well as an Academic All-American. After graduating from Denison, I went on to pursue a master’s degree in sport and exercise psychology at Miami University. While there, I had an opportunity to intern with Miami’s athletic department and begin working with different teams and coaches on campus. After I was finished with my graduate program, I knew I wanted to come to NCSA so that I would have the opportunity to give back to athletes in my sport. There is a lot that I didn’t know or understand throughout my own recruiting process, and NCSA now gives me the opportunity to give back to today’s student-athletes to help them get the most out of their recruiting process.
