Panthers Alum Named Swimming Coach at SUNY New Paltz


Tom Eickelberg ’11 was recently named head coach of the men’s and women’s swimming teams at SUNY New Paltz.

Eickelberg, who graduated from Adelphi with a degree in exercise science, was a member of the men’s swimming and cross country teams and served as an assistant coach for the Panthers swim team in 2011. During his time as an Adelphi swimmer, Eickelberg set six program records, captured four individual Northeast-10 titles and earned 14 All-Metropolitan Conference first-team honors.
