On July 30 my wife and I had the honor and privilege to attend the First Annual USRowing Diversity Invitational. For those of you who have never been to Rochester, I highly suggest you make a visit. I honestly felt as if Rochester is the friendliest city I have ever been to. Upon arriving to city limits, we…

My wife was looking for information about CIAA, Tennessee A and I Tiger Sharks swim team that won championships in the '50's, a comment by Mark M Lewis about Coach Thomas Hughes and the CIAA, and much more. I was on that swim team in 1950, 1951, and 1952.

I lost Ric's phone number due to a lost phone and made an attempt to find him on the net.  I am happy to see that he is still involved in aquatics.  Ric was my dive instructor in the 70's.

Hi Jayson!  Thanks for the allowing me to join.  I discovered you all on Facebook.  I wish I had known about you all this summer.  I did an 11k charity swim for an organization in Austin.  It's called Colin's Hope and it spreads water safety awareness.

Hello Karl:  this is Charlie Lumpkin, SCSU Swim team 69-73.  I was a diver and I'm in the SCSU Athletic Hall of Fame.  I called coach Bradley and he told me about the HOF.  Please call him and give him your number and E-mail.  I'll call you.  He gave me Dr. Mosley's number who was at the Morgan State Swim Reunion.  Please pass the word to all HBCU swimmers that we are planning a reunion at the next DAP convention.

I was a member of SC State AquaDogs. My team won the 1980 - thru 82, black National Swimming and Diving Chamionships. We lost our team due to Title IX. My team was inducted into the SC State Athletic Hall of Fame for this achievement. A lot of us have gone in to do other things, but swimming was instrumental in our life at one time. I wanted to add some pictures from out event to the site. My team was composed of kids from Detroit, NJ, Indiana, SC, and Philly.
