At the forefront was recognition of its athletes who helped the team go undefeated during the regular season and then capture Suburban Swim League title by a mere seven points over Granite Bay.
Taz president Brett Jones thanked all the swimmers and signaled out the 6 and under group; the 9-10 boys, led by high point-earner Patrick Sammon, and girls who combined for 303 points; and Trevor Dong and Morgan Jones for their career accomplishments.
The award’s night was also an opportunity for the Taz board to name its scholarship recipients, now known as “The Malaney Scholarship.”
The $1,000 Malaney Scholarship recipients are Taz swimmers and 2014 Oak Ridge High School graduates Trevor Dong, Ashley Abraham, Sonia Chimni, Calin Navickas, Sam Sruba and Jerry Chen.
Scholarship selections are based on leadership, academic and athletic attendance, courage, humor, noble sportsmanship, exemplary attitude, and a minimum GPA of 3.0 throughout all four high school years.
“Congratulations to our scholarship recipients,” Taz president Brett Jones said. “It’s tough seeing these kids graduate out. Many times, it’s not just losing a swimmer, but it’s saying goodbye to an entire family.”
