Mrs. Emily Geiger Mercier
Head Coach Emily Mercier is in her seventh year at Norcross and with the Blue Devils Swim and Dive Team. Coach Mercier teaches both geometry and pre-calculus at Norcross High School. Despite a shaky start to swimming at the age of three, when the instructor told Mrs. Geiger her daughter would never be a strong swimmer because she was afraid to jump in the water, Emily went on to become a club swimmer with Swim Atlanta. A graduate of the Gwinnett County School system, Coach Mercier swam for Shiloh High School and went on to compete for all four-years as a varsity athlete with Georgia Southern University. Coach Mercier earned her graduate degree from Mercer University and her undergraduate degree from Georgia Southern. “I enjoy coaching because swimmers are very goal-oriented and have a lot of determination,” says Coach Mercier. “I truly love the sport and like being a part of it by coaching. I still get nervous during meets like I am about to get up on the block and race!”
