Head Coach Claire Luigard
We are excited to welcome Claire Luigard back as our Hellcat Head Coach for the 2021 swim season! In 2020, Claire coached the Hellcats who participated in our summer program. We are fortunate to have Claire return for a competitive season! Over the winter Claire was head coach of Springbrook High School's Varsity Swim & Dive Team. Before coming to Hillandale, Claire graduated from Montclair State University with a degree in Industrial Design. She swam on Montclair State's Division III Swim & Dive team and has earned top 3 times at her college conference meets in breaststroke and 200 IM. In high school, Claire captained the St. John's College High School swim team where she swam for 4 years and was a Metros finalist in both breaststroke and 200 IM. Claire was a "lifelong" swimmer and three-season assistant coach for the Daleview Feet. Welcome Back to Hillandale, Claire!
Welcome back to Matt Williams! He is a longtime Hellcat who has previous experience as an assistant coach and has worked with our Pre-team Hellkitten swimmers for several years. He's a man of many talents - he sings, he acts, he swims, he coaches! We are so glad to have Matt back! Matt is a sophomore at Catholic University.
Ayana Davis is returning as an Asst. Coach for the Hellcats in 2021. Ayana started her swimming career 11 years ago at Oakview Pool. We are so lucky that Ayana became a Hellcat 8 years ago. She also swims year round with a club team and is a captain of the varsity swim team at Springbrook High School. Ayana is bringing her academic and swimming talents to Washington College in the fall.
