Yesterday teammates gathered together at the Blanchard Park YMCA pool to remember Roy McConnell and his 3 sons. Roy was a regular at our Wednesday 6am swim practices and his swim lane (lane #4) was reserved for him all day.

Usually only 10 or so people swam in the mornings but on this day about 30 people showed up. Coach Jacklynn, Roy's sister Deb McConnell (below in yellow) and Pastor Paul said some wonderful words in remembrance of Roy.

Then Coach Jacklynn gave us a special workout with two options for total yardage: 1600 or 2100. For teammates who were unable to attend, you may download the workout here.
