Zach Rey fully understands and appreciates the importance of the high quality mission of the Lehigh Valley Athletic Club. For the past four years, he's benefited from having some of the most highly skilled and experienced post-grad mentors and training partners for practice sessions and inspiration, in addition to the full-time Lehigh staff. When Zach won his NCAA title in 2011, he directly credited U.S. Olympian and NCAA 2,1,1,2 Steve Mocco, who also served as his Lehigh bench coach and training partner the past two seasons.
