Ashley Dell has been named assistant coach of the men's and women's swimming programs in August of 2011.
Dell, a native of Lake Forest, Ill., comes to George Washington after a one-year stint as a volunteer assistant coach at the University of Iowa where she was a member of the women's swimming program from 2005-09.
Dell remains a part of the Iowa record books as she holds three all-time top-10 spots in the 500-yard, 1,000-yard and 1,650-yard freestyle events. A two-time captain for the Hawkeyes, she was awarded the Esther and Roland Smith Scholarship for Leadership as well as the Alison Pennington Haddon Strength of Character Award.
In addition to her success in the pool, Dell also excelled in the classroom. She was twice named to Iowa's Dean's List, named Academic All-Big Ten and also earned Academic All-America Honorable Mention accolades from the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) in 2008-09.
Dell graduated from Iowa in 2009 with a bachelor's degree in sport studies.
