Mary Bergstrom Head Coach

I am so happy to be back for my 3rd season at Little Falls! After swimming competitively for twelve years in the Philadelphia suburbs, it's been such a privilege to get to continue coaching. Summer swimming was always my favorite growing up and it's been an honor to have been welcomed into the Little Falls family and carry on your awesome traditions. After last summer, I continued coaching throughout the year as Head Coach Coach for NCAP's Bronze II group at American University. I also returned as Head Coach for the Varsity Girls' and Boys' Swim Team at School Without Walls High School. I currently live in Bethesda with my husband, Jimmy, our son, Adrian, and our dog, Randolph - all of whom will be cheering on the Penguins this summer!

Rachel Danegger Assistant Head Coach

Hi Penguins! My name is Rachel and I’m so excited to return this summer for another amazing season! This will be my 13th and final year competing for the Penguins and I can’t wait to share my love for summer swimming with all of you! I just finished my freshman year at Tulane University and although I've taken my love for the water to the Rowing Team, I still have been known to make an appearance at Tulane's Club Swim Team practice. Swimming has always been a huge part of my life and I’ve been lucky enough to call Little Falls my home for so many summers. I’ve been a Penguin for 12 years and swam year round competitively for 11. I also swam for B-CC High School all four years. Although I can’t say I’ve had a dark and cold winter down here in New Orleans, I’m still so excited for the summer season to begin. I can’t wait to meet you all!

Ian Shepel Assistant Head Coach

Little Falls has been and always will be an important part of my love for swimming so I am so excited to be coming back to coach again this season. I swam for the Penguins for 10 years (participated on the dive team for 1 season), graduated the summer of 2017, and have been so honored to be able to coach the team for what will be 4 amazing seasons. I swam for Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School for 4 years and have continued swimming at Lewis & Clark College where I am a rising junior majoring in Biology and Economics. As winter comes to a close, I can’t help but get more excited for good times on the pool deck this summer! Go Penguins!

I first joined the Penguins when I was seven years old and have been on the team ever since them.  This will be my last year swimming for the team, having recently graduated from Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School. In addition to swimming for Little Falls, I‘m also on a year-round club swim team and was on the B-CC swim team for four years. In the fall I will begin my freshman year at Tufts University, but for now I am looking forward to a season full of fun and fast swimming. Go Penguins!

I have been a dedicated Penguin since the age of 5, beginning in the developmental program. I have been on the team ever since then and have had a wonderful few years.
