SEATTLE – (Sept. 19) Seattle University swimming has announced the hiring of two assistant coaches for the 2017-18 season. Coach Craig Nisgor has brought on Maki Moore and Trever Gray to coach with the Redhawks.
Nisgor, entering his seventh season at SU, hired Tomas Mendez ‘14 as an assistant earlier this summer. Moore and Gray round out the staff for the upcoming season.
“I am really excited to have both Maki and Trever joining our staff this year,” said Nisgor. “They both bring a wealth of knowledge and have coached and competed at the highest level. Having them join us on deck this year helps us to round out a great staff, which I know will only help to improve the experience for all of our student-athletes here at Seattle University.”
Moore coached at Central Area Aquatics in Seattle for the last two years. Before that, she was the head age group coach for Desert Storm Swimming. She swam at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. Moore was a Washington high school state champion in the 200 freestyle and 500 freestyle and competed at junior nationals, nationals, and the U.S. Open.
Gray had an All-American career at the University of Arizona. He has spent the last four years as an instructor at Central Washington University. Gray has coached the University of Wyoming, St. Peter’s Academy (New Zealand), and Tacoma Swim Club.
SU returns a strong roster for the 2017-18 campaign. It opens the season by hosting Idaho on Oct. 14 at the Connolly Complex.
