When Hollie Bonewit-Cron took over at Miami in 2016, she became the first coach of the newly-combined RedHawk men's and women's swimming programs, making her the first female coach in Miami men's swim/dive history.
That led to a historic accomplishment for Bonewit-Cron in 2019, as she became the first-ever female coach to lead a men's team to a Mid-American Conference championship in any sport when the RedHawks captured the conference meet.
How does a lightly-recruited swimmer out of Athens, Ohio become an NCAA All-American and eventually a championship-level coach? How does one head coach manage to find what motivates 65 different student-athletes on a day-in, day-out basis? Or, perhaps to put the question in broader terms, what makes a successful person successful?

In this webinar, Hollie will elaborate on a handful of the lessons she's learned so far over a 21-year coaching career, as well as some of the principles she's used as a foundation of her program during the past half dozen seasons in Oxford. Some ABCs from H.B.C., if you will.
The presentation is free to watch online, but registration is required.
