Coach Hannah Head Coach

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

Hannah is 23 and has been a part of our coaching staff since she was 17. She was Assistant Coach for 2 years, a Co-Head Coach for 2 years, and this will be her 2nd year as our Head Coach. Hannah began swimming for Eagle Ridge when she was 5 years old which opened the door for her to begin swimming year-round for Marlins of Raleigh in middle school. She attended Enloe High School where she swam on the Varsity team all 4 years. After high school, she attended Meredith College where she received a BA in Psychology in 2021. When she is not swimming, you can find Hannah at Vance Elementary School as a Kindergarten IA or babysitting for one of our many families here in ER. The Eagle Ridge Swim Team holds a special place in her heart as it has been an influential part of her summers for the last 19 years. When she was younger, her favorite stroke was Butterfly, but now has an affinity for Backstroke. When Hannah is not working, babysitting, or coaching, she enjoys beach trips and snuggling with her 3 year old mini goldendoodle.

Hannah cannot wait to see all the amazing progress each swimmer makes this season!
