Tiffany Watson will be returning for her 5th year as the Head Coach of Dove Tree. She and her husband Stewart have two boys, William (11) and Jay (9). She is a high school English teacher at Eastside High School and has been coaching at the Varsity level for 13 years. Under her direction, the Eastside boys' team has won the State Championship the last two years and the girls finished Runner-Up! With that accomplishment, she was named the State's AAAA Swim Coach of the year both years. Recently the NFHS (National Federation of High School Sports) named her the Southeastern Swim Coach of the Year!
She loves to swim for exercise and competition whenever she has time. She wants the swimmers to develop a love for the sport and to learn proper technique, but she also desires that they build relationships with teammates and coaches and see the value of hard work. We are extremely fortunate to have Tiffany as our Dove Tree Head Coach!

Evan is currently on the W&L swim team; in fact, just last weekend he swam several events and relays that contributed to W&L winning their conference meet! Evan began his swimming career in SAIL and then swam year-round for both Team Greenville and YSSC. He also swam for Coach Tiffany at Eastside and was an All-State swimmer and on the Eastside State Championship team last year. He loves the way swimming pushes him mentally and physically. Evan will be a great asset to our team with his technique details, gentle spirit, and competitive drive!
