Standout Spartan: Diane Maiese

Steward's diving coach the subject of Black History Month spotlight.
Last year, Middle School math teacher and swim/dive coach Diane Maiese led the varsity girls swim/dive team to their first VISAA DII state championship in program history. It was a huge victory for the swim/dive program and the entire Steward community. Of course, it wasn't the first big win in Coach Maiese's career.

As a collegiate diver, she was a four-time NCAA All-American diver at Trenton State College, as well as the first black diver to win a DIII college national championship. In addition to having coached at DI schools like The University of Richmond, she spends a lot of time working with the nonprofit DiveRVA, which aims to make diving accessible to everyone in Central Virginia.
