Matthew Ellis Head Coach
Hali Cormany Lead Assistant Coach

Coach Hali Hess is now in her fifth year as a coach for the Chambersburg Chargers.  Hali is also a former Charger swimmer.  Hali graduated from Shippensburg University in 2013 with a degree in Business with a Finance concentration.

Hali started swimming when she was 10 years old for Mercersburg Area Swim Club. In her senior year, after competing for MASC for 7 seasons, she decided to join the Chambersburg YMCA Chargers.  In High School swimming, Hali competed for James Buchanan, where she made districts in multiple relays, as well as the 100 Breaststroke, 200 IM, and 200 Freestyle.  Hali had an outstanding career at James Buchanan, finishing as high as 2nd at the AA MidPenn Championships, and 6th at the AA District III Championships in the 100 Breaststroke. She is the school record holder for the 100 Breaststroke and 200 Medley Relay.

Outside of the pool, Hali loves to hang out with my friends and family. Her favorite season is the summer because she loves working and being outside, as well as being a counselor at St. John Camp.

Over the past four seasons, Coach Hali has done an excellent job of teaching correct technique and also providing an atmosphere conducive to learning and having fun.  Hali's consistent demeanor and teaching style have led to steady time drops for her swimmers at every meet over the course of each of the past three seasons.

Hali is very excited for what this season has in store! Her advice to the kids: Practice hard and swim fast!
