Grier Accepts Head Swim Coaching Position at Mars Hill

Grier Accepts Head Swim Coaching Position at Mars Hill

Head Swim Coach Elle Grier announced her resignation from Warren Wilson College this week. She has accepted the Head Swim Coach and Aquatics Director position at Mars Hill University. Elle has served as Head Swim Coach, Athletics Crew Supervisor, and Aquatics Director at WWC for the past three years. During her time here she has coached the team through three full competition schedules since the pools closing in 2014 and during each of those seasons at least 70% of the team achieved personal best times throughout the season. 

"I want to thank everyone in the Warren Wilson Community for the opportunity to be part of such an amazing institution for the past three years. This truly is a special and wonderful place that I will miss very much! I wish WWC, the athletics department, and the swim team nothing but the best for the future." 

A search will begin immediately for the open Head Swim Coach and Aquatics Director position.
