HEAD COACH RILEY PFADENHAUER
The McLean Marlins are ECSTATIC to announce that Riley will be our new Head Coach for the 2018 season. Riley began swimming as a mere youngster, starting out as a Future Marlin before quickly developing into a self-proclaimed “Mark Spitz/Michael Phelps mix”, asserting “I like to believe I have the natural talent of Michael Phelps combined with the style and trend-setting abilities that defined Mark Spitz”. He can be seen frequenting the pool deck in one of his many pairs of Crocs that he describes as “totally chic” and a visor that he hopes will one day become a staple of any swimmer’s outfit. He is pleased about the opportunity to coach the Marlins this summer, stating “I am beyond excited to help lead the Marlins this summer, and hope to see us continue the trend of having fun while also competing at a high level”. Riley is currently attending William & Mary but graduated from Langley High School in 2016 where he was a member of the swim team all four years, and was elected captain his senior season.
ASSISTANT HEAD COACH LIDDY MCCULLA
This will be Liddy's first year as Assistant Head Coach after two years of being an assistant coach. Liddy
began swimming for the Marlins at age 6, and although she got off to a rocky start as sports were never her strong suit, she soon began to love the team and the sport. Joining the Marlins changed her life because that is what prompted her to begin club swimming. Currently, Liddy attends the University of Delaware where she swims for the Women's Division 1 Varsity Swim Team! Liddy graduated from McLean High School in 2017, where she was a part of the McLean Swim and Dive Team. In high school, Liddy trained under Coach John Flanagan while swimming for NCAP. Liddy has never been more excited to start the summer! She can’t wait for the opportunity to better herself and her teammates as a coach for the Marlins. This year, she hopes to continue the tradition of being the fastest team in the NVSL while still having the most fun!
