Memorial set for Coach Betsy Patterson


This past week, Charger Aquatics and New Mexico Swimming suffered a loss to our family.


On August 22, Betsy Hall Patterson passed away following a courageous fight with cancer at the age of 53. Betsy began swimming at the age of six and continued to swim, teach and coach throughout her life. Her coaching career spanned over 25 years in New Mexico at Duke City Aquatics, Charger Aquatics and Sandia High School. 


Services will be held at Sandia Presbyterian Church, 10704 Paseo del Norte NE on August 30 at 3:00 pm.


NMS is more than an organization; we are a network of friends and extended family.  While this loss affects us, we take inspiration from the memories of Betsy, and her dedication and devotion to swimmers of all ages and abilities. Please keep her loved ones in your thoughts.
