Coaching Staff

Elizabeth Braunecker

Head coach


My name is Elizabeth Braunecker. I am married to Matt and we have 5 children. This is my 20th year coaching here at Effingham. I spent most of my youth around the water, and was a competitive swimmer for 13 years. Being a coach has allowed me to relive some of those memorable days. I enjoy working with the children and developing their strokes to make them better swimmers.
