Meet Our New Head Coach for 2020!
We are excited to introduce Claire Luigard as our Hellcat Head Coach for the 2020 swim season! Claire is graduating this Spring from Montclair State University with a degree in Industrial Design. She is finishing her final season 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 is also very familiar with MCSL as she was a "lifelong" swimmer and three-season assistant coach for the Daleview Feet. We are looking forward to Claire's experience as a swimmer, a coach, a swim instructor and stroke & turn specialist. Her love for the sport of swimming will be a great inspiration for our 2020 Hellcats! Welcome to Hillandale, Claire!
Ayana Davis is returning as an Asst. Coach for the Hellcats in 2020. Ayana started her swimming career 8 years ago at Oakview Pool. We are so lucky that Ayana became a Hellcat 5 years ago. She also swims year round with a club team and is on the varsity swim team at Springbrook High School where she is finishing her junior year.
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! This season is sponsored by the letter M!
