WILMINGTON, Ohio - A familiar face has returned to the Wilmington College Natatorium. Though she won't be competing in the water, Margaret Hover will be returning to campus as assistant men's and women's swimming coach in 2021-22 after completing a stellar four-year career as a student-athlete with the program.
"I am excited that Margaret has agreed to return to Wilmington College to help lead the program that she was such an influential leader of the past four years," Head Swimming Coach Trip Breen said. "She will continue to be a valuable member of our program and campus community."
Hover, a 2021 WC alumna who graduated Summa Cum Laude, competed in freestyle and relay events for the Fightin' Quakers all four years as a student-athlete. Three relay teams - 400-yard medley, 400-yard freestyle and 800-yard freestyle - that Hover took part in are currently program records. She was also involved as a lifeguard and an IT Help Desk assistant as well as being a certified swim instructor with the YMCA.
Margaret begins her coaching tenure on Sept. 1.
