Clipper Alum and current team record holder, Jason Vadney, ended his swimming career on a big note this season at the Michigan State Swimming Banquet. Jason was honored by having the Spartan Of The Year Award named in his honor. The award is now called the "Jason Vadney" Spartan Of The Year Award. This award is handed out each year to the person who demonstrates the characteristics of a Spartan warrior, never backing down from a challenge and never giving up. Jason also received the Heart Award this year which is given to the person who shows the most heart in and out of the pool.
Congratulations to Jason on a great career.
