Renee Russo

Hello Downs Farm! My name is Renee Russo and I am ecstatic to be your new head coach this summer! I'd like to tell you a little about myself, I am 22 years old and am from Medford, NJ. I've been around swimming my entire life, my older sister swam so naturally I took up the sport at a young age and fell in love with fun and competitive atmosphere swimming presents. I swam varsity all 4 years at Shawnee High School, swam 12 years at Deerbrook, and club swam for SJAC and Canes for 6 years. Currently, I swim for the Division I program at Sacred Heart University where I am studying Chemistry. Tri-County season was always my favorite part about swimming and I can't wait to continue participating in it as a coach. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and for an exciting season! 


Assistant Swim Coach:

Tyler Tedesco

Hello everyone! My name is Tyler Tedesco, I am 17 years old, and I am from Cherry Hill, NJ. The Downs Farm swim team has been my home every summer since the age of 9, and I am very excited to not only swim for the dolphins this year, but coach them as well! Throughout high school I swam varsity for the Cherry Hill East cougars and in my time there I served as a team captain, won 2 state championships, and qualified for individual championships in the IM and Breast. I have also invested my time in bridge tutoring, student government, FOP, and Cum Laude society. I am graduating this June and I will be attending the University of Delaware next fall, joining the honors program to study medical diagnostics and club swimming as well. Swimming has always been a strong passion of mine, I love the competitive nature and the physical challenge, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to coach for my home team! I plan to help swimmers develop strong technique and push themselves to become the best swimmers they can be. I look forward to working with everyone this season and hope to have a fun and exciting summer!
