Hello everyone! I'm Elizabeth Rivera, and I'm so excited to
be the Head Swim Coach at MacGregor Downs Country Club this year!
When I'm not at the pool coaching or relaxing, I am an Elementary
Special Education teacher. I married my husband Corey, a little
over a year ago and we live in Knightdale with my step-son Maddox.
I have been swimming competitively since the age of four when I
started swimming in Summer League with my neighborhood team, I
started swimming year-around at the age of eight, and
continued with my summer league team as well until I was eighteen.
I went to Boston University for swimming my freshman year
before an injury caused me to take a step back from swimming and
find my next passion, teaching! I love coaching because it combines
my two favorite things, swimming and teaching! I can't wait to meet
you all and find our "new normal" with summer league swimming!
My name is Claire Galloway and I have been coaching for 6 years!
I am a colleagate swimmer for the University of Lynchburg in
Virginia. I am majoring in exercise physiology with a minor in
coaching. I plan to pursue a doctorate in physical therapy after my
undergraduate. My favorite stroke in breaststroke because it looks
like a frog! I love sprinting, two hand touches, and playing rock
paper scissors relays at the end of good practice! I am looking
forward to coaching all the McGregor swimmers and for a fun-filled
