Fremont, CA—Casey Fleming is joining Ohlone College’s Athletics department as the Head Coach of the men’s water polo team.
The University of Pacific graduate is a five year dual sport athlete and no stranger to water sports. Fleming was the captain of the university’s water polo team in 2014 and 2015 and led the team to their first Mountain Pacific Sports Foundation season title win in University of Pacific history. His athleticism catapulted the university’s water polo team to ranking number one in the nation for a quarter of the season in 2013. Aside from his record-breaking run with the water polo team, he is also an accomplished swimmer.
During his swimming career at the University of Pacific, he competed at the 2012 Olympic trials. After breaking the 200m freestyle relay time in 2015, the team finished 34th in the nation for college swimming. His passion for sports extends outside of the pool and into the classroom.
He holds a Master’s degree in Health, Exercise, and Sports Science with a concentration in Sport Pedagogy. His dedication towards his studies earned him four years of Mountain Pacific Sports Foundation All-Academic Honors.
Ohlone College athletics dean, Chris Warden expresses his excitement to have recruited such an experienced athlete to guide the Ohlone Renegades men’s water polo team. “Fleming brings a passion for the sport, which I believe will help our program grow.”
