Bitter Sweet News:

A Goodbye to Two of Our Ace Family Members



Coach Nick

Coach Nick has been with us coaching the High School Group since May. We are sad to say that he will be coaching his last practice with us tomorrow. Coach Nick and his family are moving to Oklahoma where he will be attending a four year university. He has been an excellent addition to our team, and it has been a pleasure to have Nick on our coaching staff. We wish him and his family the best of luck in Oklahoma!


In the meantime, practice will be continuing on as normal for our High School swimmers. 


Bryce Rodriguez 

Bryce Rodriguez will be the first ever athlete to graduate in our program. He is moving on to swim and study at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Illinois. We are so excited for Bryce to be graduating and swimming in college, but so very sad to see him go. Bryce joined our team in September of last year. Since then, he has become one of the most genuinely positive and vocal leaders on our team. He has been a blessing to our team, and a constant source of laughter for all. Our team will not be the same without him! This will be Bryce’s last week practice with Ace before he leaves for ONU. 


Tomorrow we will be seeing both of these two off at practice. I will be bringing in some food for our athletes, and we will be playing some games in the pool.
