During this time period he participated on the Junior National team three separate times. He swam one year on the University of Maryland Swim Team before starting a coaching career. His coaching past includes four years of coaching in the PVS for competitive swimmers from ages 7-18. He coached three summers as Head Coach of the Tanterra Tarpons, capturing the Division A championship title in 2003. Matt completed his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2011 and has been practicing small animal medicine and surgery in the Washington-DC area. He is very excited to be on the deck once again and being involved with such a terrific sport!
