Elise Knoche Named Head Swimming and Diving Coach

University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Director of Athletics Todd Garzarelli has announced the hiring of Elise Knoche as Head Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving Coach.

Knoche (pronounced kuh-KNOCK-ee) spent the last four years as assistant men’s and women’s swimming and diving coach at Division I Southern Illinois University, where she assisted in all aspects of the program and helped the Salukis post more than 80 all-conference honors and break nearly 40 school records.

“We are thrilled to welcome Elise to the Warhawk family,” Garzarelli said. “She brings a high level of energy as well as experience as a successful coach at Division I and Division III programs. Elise’s focus on coaching character to provide positive student-athlete experiences and the holistic development of student-athletes stood out as I spoke with her and others in the coaching ranks. We are excited for her to take our swimming and diving programs to the next level.”
