Barrington Swim Club - Suzy Gavars Memorial Meet

Nov 22, 2019 - Nov 24, 2019
October, 16 2019



In 2016 BSC Renamed our Mustang Classic to the Suzy Gavars Memorial Meet in honor of Suzy Gavars, long time BSC Board Member, BSC Board President, dedicated Illinois Swimming Administrative Official, who passed away from Pancreatic Cancer in February of 2016.  She was swim parent to many of our teammates, and a close personal friend. Suzy spent tireless and thankless hours keeping the history and paperwork of our club in order. Making sure we stayed aware of our past as we moved forward into our future. Her warmth as a person was felt by all around her, whether on deck, in her home, or in our community. Her positive outlook, sensitivity and energy were infectious, uplifting everyone she came in contact with.


There are not enough words, pages or minutes in the day to describe the depth of character that Suzy displayed or how much she really meant to all of us here at BSC.  She loved her family, she loved her team, she loved our sport and every time we practice, every time we compete, every time we succeed and even when we fall short she will be with us, and in us ALWAYS.
