Coaching Staff

Elizabeth Rivera

Head Coach

Email

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!

Hannah Frey

Assistant Coach

Email

My name is Hannah Frey and I have been in the water for as long as I can remember! I swam competitively for year-round and summer leagues during my child and early adulthood, and continued to swim in college at UNC Wilmington. Being so close to the beach, I loved swimming pier-to-pier and doing laps in the incredible recreation facility on campus. I graduated college in 2018 with a degree in English and Secondary Education and now teach at a high school in downtown Raleigh. My favorite stroke is butterfly because it is so beautiful and powerful. I love teaching drills to improve individual strokes. This will be my first year as an assistant coach with the MacDolphins and am looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you!
