Eric Mojock enters his sixth season as the head men’s and women’s swimming and diving coach at Mount Union.
Mojock has received Ohio Athletic Conference Women's Coaching Staff of the Year honors twice (2010, 2012) for the strides the women’s program has made during his five years at Mount Union. Under Mojock’s direction, the Purple Raiders have finished third or better at the OAC Championships the past five years, including three consecutive runner-up finishes.
Record-setting performances, conference champions, and national qualifiers have become the standard under Mojock. Over his career, Mojock has coached 156 individual/relay all-conference selections and five national qualifiers who earned 14 All-American honors.
This past season, the women set four conference records and 10 school records on their way to a second place finish at the OAC Championships while the men set three school relay records on their way to a third place finish at the OAC Championships.
During Mojock’s second season at Mount Union, diver Mary Vallinger earned All-America honors by finishing 12th in the 3 meter diving competition and 13th in the 1 meter diving competition at the 2009 NCAA Division III Swimming Championships
His coaching style can be best described as technique first. “A solid foundation of stroke technique combined with a strong swimming IQ will unlock the potential of swimmers at every level.”
Mojock earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pa. While at Westminster, he was a four-year letterwinner, team captain, NCAA Division II All-American and spent two seasons as an assistant swim coach.
