We are supper excited to have over 95 swimmers and 55 families on the swim team this season. Our coaches, Nate Hamilton, Andi Ramsey and Jared Dimick have been doing an awesome job getting our swimmers ready for meets and improving their times and strokes.
In June we competed in three swim meets. Our first meet was an away meet at Mount Vernon in which we won by over 300 points. We then hosted two home meets, one against Wheatridge and the other against The Stingrays. We have some really strong swimmers this year with many of our swimmers taking first and second place in our meets and victories in our first two meets. We also have some very young swimmers who made it across the pool for their very first race! Come check out the team on Saturday, July 15th when we will be swimming against Golden at Foothills Pool!
Olympian Gold Medalist Missy Franklin Visits Genesee Swim Team!
Genesee Swim Team had a surprise visitor at one of our Friday morning practices and Saturday Swim Meet. The one and only Missy Franklin came to our team breakfast and picture day on June 15th and our home swim meet against the Stingrays on June 16th For those of you who don’t know much about swimming, Missy is a five-time Olympic gold medalist. She currently holds the world record in the 200-meter backstroke and American records in both the 100-meter and 200-meter backstroke. As a member of the U.S. national swim team, she holds the world record in the 4×100-meter medley relay.
Missy made the drive to Genesee from Centennial to help Hydrosphere Representative Hayes Johnson (also an accomplished swimmer who has competed at the National level) demonstrate a new timing and meet management software the team is considering. Thanks Missy for taking the time to meet our swimmers as it is not every day you get to meet an Olympic gold medalist! Fun Fact: Former Genesee Foundation manager Carla Andrews used to coach Missy on her strokes!
GMT – Splash-4-Cash
Genesee swimmers are looking forward to our annual Spash-4-Cash this month. This is a big fundraiser for our team and for our very own Genesee Fire Department. Half of all money raised will be donated to the Genesee Fire Department. Residents can show their support by sponsoring a specific swimmer or by sponsoring the team as a whole.
Sponsorships are based on the total number of laps completed by an individual swimmer in one hour. Our goal as a team is to swim over 1000 lengths of Foothills pool. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to learn more about sponsoring this event.
