ACAC was busy on January 20, 2018. A contingent of ACAC Senior Swimmers competed in the KISL City Meet High School Championships. Our participants (and I hope I have not missed anyone) included Madison Wright, Sarah Walker, Kenzie Welch, Ethan Chou, Madi Cottrell, Alison Craig, Colby Brown, Esther and Katerina Gallmeier, Sydney and Kendal Goodman, Alex Greenhalgh, Lucy Groscost, Harper Houk, Kevin Li, Austen Reid and Zack Telep. Dylan Arnold, Sydney and Savannah Brennan, Tais Brown, Camden Gerchar, Paul Greene, Logan Hall, Brady Houk, and Creed Loy competed for their respective middle schools in the KMSSL Championship. They all competed well.
That evening, a group of swimmers, parents, and coaches took in a Knoxville Ice Bears hockey game. Our home team made us proud, beating Roanoke 10-0. Savannah and Sydney Brennan, Tais Brown, Mason and Avery Fischer, Camden Gerchar, Abigail Jessica and Jackson King, Egan Rawn, and Aydan Skelton joined parents and Coaches Andy Wagner and Nathaniel Laning in enjoying the entertainment provided in being part of a hockey crowd. The kids received team baseball caps, and a couple were able to obtain tee-shirts launched into the crowd. The game and activities provided fun for all!
