2016 KAW Spring Banquet: Celebrating Excellence

Kingfish held its annual Spring Banquet on Friday, April 22, 2016 at White Lake Oaks Banquet Facility.  Approximately 150 Kingfish family members and swimmers sat down and enjoyed dinner, a year in pictures, the KAW photo booth, and finished the night off with some dancing! 


Most importantly, this night was the team’s opportunity to honor all KAW swimmers for their hard work and the parents and coaches for their continued support. 


Each year, the KAW swim team recognizes two swimmers for Swimmer of the Year honors.  Congratulations to the following swimmers on their special recognition awards:


2015-2016 SWIMMER




Emma Hazel



Nathanial Ladetto


Additionally, each 2016 High School Senior gives a senior speech and receives a special gift from the team.  This year’s speeches were heartfelt, humorous, and inspiring to all. Congratulations to all our 2016 KAW High School Seniors as they start the next phase of their education:

Matthew Culver – Oakland University (OU), Rochester MI

Andrew Guan – New York University (NYU), New York NY

Nathanial Ladetto – University of Findlay, Findlay OH
