USMS Award Recipient

U.S. Masters Swimming Dorothy Donnelly Service Award

Recipient: Garrick Snider
Year: 2013
LMSC: New Mexico

Swimmer, triathlete and former diver, Garrick volunteered in many roles to serve the New Mexico Masters Swimming community. During his long tenure in the LMSC, Garrick served as Chairman, Registrar, Treasurer, and Secretary; for many years, simultaneously. He also organized numerous swim meets for the swimmers in NM. A favorite to many was the “Cinco de Mile” meet, which took place at the Walkup Aquatic Center, a beautiful facility that sits high in the mountains at 7450 ft. Garrick devised the popular Mariachi Relays, where swimmers swam while wearing sombreros, passing the hats like a baton. His dedication to the NM LMSC was appreciated by all.
