WOOD VALLEY DIVE TEAM COACHES
Liz Agather – Head Coach
Coach Liz is excited and honored to return for her sixth season as the WV Head Dive Coach. She grew up in Virginia and started diving at age 9 at her summer pool. She dove year round for over ten years and competed at the national and junior national levels. At 15, she was selected to attend a year round Olympic training program in Mission Viejo, California but chose to remain in Virginia where she got the opportunity to learn to coach age group divers. She coached multiple summer and year round teams from age 16-21. She competed for the University of Virginia Swim and Dive Team for two years until she sustained a career-ending knee injury. Coach Liz is also the Director of Leesville Baptist Mothers Morning Out Preschool and she is a mom to two teenagers.

Coach Megan is a rising Junior at Sanderson High School. She is a member of the SHS dive team and competed in the NCHSAA Regional and State meets both freshman and sophomore years. This is her 11th summer as a diving Otter. In addition to coaching, Megan is a lifeguard for Wood Valley. Megan plays mellophone in the marching band and just completed her 10th year of Girl Scouts. She enjoys putting pickles on her bagels and eating ice cream before dinner.
