Gulf Swimming held its Annual Awards Banquet on Sunday, October 2, at the Westchase Marriott in Houston, Texas. The annual banquet celebrates outstanding performances by athletes in the previous season and recognizes volunteers and coaches for their dedication to Gulf Swimming. Elizabeth Beisel shared her journey in swimming and inspirational stories with attendees.
More than 500 athletes turned in outstanding performances that were recognized with a level award plaque or a qualification award this year. In addition to athletes’ awards, several awards are given out each year to recognize volunteers, coaches and athletes for their outstanding service, coaching and sportsmanship.
