LARAMIE -- University of Wyoming swimming and diving head coach Dave Denniston announced an addition to the coaching staff Thursday. Zane Freeman joins the team as a graduate assistant coach working with the divers.
“I’m honored to be here at the University of Wyoming with the goal of making a positive impact on this side of the pool deck,” Freeman said. “I want to thank everyone that has got me to this position today.”
