USMS Award Recipient

U.S. Masters Swimming Dorothy Donnelly Service Award

Recipient: Virginia Trimble
Year: 2014
LMSC: Ohio

A member of the U.S. Air Force, Ginny founded the Warner Robins Aquanauts Masters in 2011, building the first competitive Masters team in middle Georgia.  Although the team has many military ties, there is diversity in age, careers and even the level of training.  Some are training for triathlons while others focus primarily on swimming.  Ginny took on the initial organization, coaching development, scheduling of pool space, as well as the administrative tasks. All on the team look up to and appreciate that Captain Trimble established this successful Masters swimming program that is so vital to them.
