VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR
During the 2017-2018 short course season, we recognized volunteers who went above and beyond the call of duty with restaurant gift cards and other prizes at each swim meet that our team hosted. We will take volunteer recognition further during the 2018-2019 long and short course seasons by presenting a Volunteer of the Year Award during our annual spring banquet.
