Eileen Hall, a long-time club coach with decades of competing and coaching experience, returns for her fifth season as head coach of the Saint Michael's men's and women's swimming & diving programs in 2014-15.

In the winter of 2013-14, Purple Knight women claimed fourth out of 20 schools at the season-ending New England Intercollegiate Swimming & Diving Association (NEISDA) Championship, just 20 points short of third place, while finishing among the top five at the NEISDA meet during consecutive seasons for the first time since 2003-04 and 2004-05. The men were seventh out of 12 but were just 13 points shy of sixth place. During the season, 10 combined school records were broken by Saint Michael's men and women, while one swimmer provisionally qualified for the NCAA Championship.

The Purple Knight teams both had historic finishes at the NEISDA Championship in 2012-13 despite sending no divers to the meet. The women took fourth among 21 teams, their best showing since 2008-09, and just their third top-four showing since 2001-02. The men grabbed fifth place out of 11, matching their best showing since taking fourth in 2000-01. In dual meets, the women finished 5-4, one win short of matching the program's highest total since 1995-96. Purple Knights combined to set seven school marks during the 2012-13 season.

In 2011-12, the women also went 5-4, while both squads took sixth at the NEISDA meet. The female student-athletes combined to set 12 school records, with one swimmer provisionally qualifying for the NCAA Championship in three events. Hall's men broke six program standards. In her first season as head coach, in 2010-11, Hall helped guide the Saint Michael's women to four dual-meet victories, and both the men's and women's programs to top-eight finishes at the NEISDA Championship. Hall was an assistant coach with the programs in 2009-10.

Hall, who resides in Colchester, graduated from the NCAA Women Coaches Academy in 2013 and has a wealth of swimming & diving coaching experience at a variety of levels. Since 2005, she has served as the head coach of the Green Mountain Aquatics (GMA) senior group, training athletes ages 13 to 18 years old at the Ross Sports Center pool as they prepare for regional and Junior National competition. While with GMA, Hall has been the principal on-deck coach at the New England Open Championships, the New England 14-and-Under Championships, and the New England regionals. Hall also spent 14 months in 2005 and 2006 as the head coach of the Winooski Swim Club, training athletes ages 6 to 18 years old.

Prior to moving to Vermont, Hall served three years as the swimming head coach at Two Harbors (Minn.) High School, coaching approximately 30 high school athletes annually. Two Harbors finished in the top three in its conference every year during Hall’s tenure, and she helped advance two athletes to the Minnesota State High School Championships. Hall also spent three years as the head coach of the Kingston (Tenn.) Clippers Swim Club in the mid-1990s.

A standout amateur swimmer, Hall was an All-America at Glens Falls (N.Y.) High School in 1986, and went on to earn an athletic scholarship at Division I Bucknell University. Hall held high school state records at Glens Falls until 2002, and was inducted into the Glens Falls High School Athletic Hall of Fame in 2009.

Hall has earned her Level II certification through the American Swim Coaches Association (ASCA), and is also qualified as a coach with the United States Swimming Association. She has attended ASCA clinics in Florida, Massachusetts and New Jersey since 2007.
