  • Mark Spencer arrived at Deerfield Academy in 2013 and immediately stepped into the role of Assistant Coach for the Deerfield swim team.  In his three years coaching, Deerfield has won one New England Championship and narrowly missed repeating that feat this past season.  Mark enjoys watching the growth and development of the swimmers and is proud of the fact that since his arrival, Deerfield has produced over 15 All-Americans.  He is thrilled to serve as the Head Coach for the 2016-2017 swim season and continue the tradition of excellence and distinction that mark the boys varsity squad at Deerfield Academy.

    Mark attended Dansville Central High School in Western New York where he focused on distance swimming and served as Captain his senior year.  As an adult he competed in the swimming leg of the Cayuga Lake Triathlon, where his team came in second place. While attending Hartwick College, Mark turned his athletic attentions to soccer where he played "wherever they needed me, except goalie."  Mark has spent the majority of his career in college admissions working at Vassar College, Cornell University, and Brandeis University.  After serving as Dean of Admissions for many years, he chose to move to the "other side of the desk" as a Director of College Advising for Deerfield.


    Mark very much enjoys being a part of the Deerfield community and sharing all it has to offer with his wife and two daughters.  His favorite ways to exercise these days include cycling and hiking when he can find the time.  

  • Jason has been Deerfield Academy’s diving coach since 2011. He has been diving competitively for over ten years.

    Jason attended the Amherst Regional High School where he was a three-time All-American diver, holds the Amherst Regional High School diving record (355.00), holder of the WMass diving record (575.50) and, Massachusetts state diving record (622.05).

    He most recently competed for the University of Massachusetts Amherst where he was the first diver in UMASS history to compete at the NCAA Division 1 Diving Championships. During his four years there he broke both Atlantic 10 diving records, scoring 636.85 in the one-meter and 680.75 in the three-meter at his first career Atlantic 10 Championships, holds the all-time record at UMASS in the three-meter with a score of 395.05 and ranks first all-time in the one-meter (334.50).
