Congratulations to Cooper Willetts:

The Gulf and PACK Swimming now have another young deaf athlete kicking up water that has just qualified for the Deaf World Championships in San Antonio this August. 

Please help me congratulate 12 year old, Cooper Willetts, who currently swims in the Junior Elite group with Coach Shane McCauley at Premier Aquatics! 

Below is the article on SwimSwam announcing his selection to the roster. Fun fact: HE IS THE YOUNGEST ATHLETE ON RECORD TO BE NAMED TO THE TEAM! What a fantastic accomplishment for one of our Gulf swimmers! 

With a Deaflympic team to be named for the 2017 games in Turkey, we sure wish Cooper a ton of good luck and fast water!
