Hi my name is Luke Dangel, I am 18 years old, and I'm currently a freshman at Virginia Tech. I have been a diver since I was 5 years old, and this summer will be my third year as a dive coach. Outside of the pool I enjoy outdoor activities like biking, going on hikes, and surfing. I love to stay interactive with my community as I also run a bike business, allowing me to build personal relationships with those in my area. Diving is one of those sports that essentially any age group can pick up at any time with the right attitude, and I am beyond excited to see what great potential this summer has to offer.
Luke has been diving at DH since he was 5 years old. He has been a great asset to the team on the board and behind the scenes ever since! He holds the pool's Freshman and Junior Record.
He is excited to have an almost "normal" dive season with meets, team building activities, the Annual Lip Sync Contest and the Awards Banquet. Being a daredevil himself, he looks forward to coaching new (and current) divers who enjoy the adrenaline rush that often comes from diving!
Luke is a rising Junior at Yorktown High School. In his spare time he enjoys photography, skateboarding & fishing.
Ellie has been diving at Dominion Hills since she was 7. She has always enjoyed being a part of the DH team and looks foward to participating each year. She's a rising Junior at Washginton-Liberty, where she set the W-L and Virginia State 6A diving record as the 2021 State High School Champion.
She dives and competes year-round for Dominion Dive Club where she has been given coaching opportunities and has acquired skills for helping divers improve their fundamentals, form, and confidence.
