ROSARIAN ACADEMY 25TH INVITATIONAL SWIM MEET THIS SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24TH
Rosarian Academy will be hosting the 25th Rosarian Academy Invitational Swim Meet this Saturday, October 24, 2015, at Lake Lytal. Sixty Rosarian Academy kindergarten-through-eighth-grade students will compete against swimmers from St. Ann School, Palm Beach Day Academy, St. Clare, and Sacred Heart. There will be approximately 150 swimmers in total.
Starting in 1959, Rosarian Academy was blessed to have a swimming pool and swim progr in the physical education classes. The Rosarian Academy Invitational Swim Meet was started in 1990 to encourage other schools to get involved with swimming and participate in a swim meet. Doug Rozelle started the Invitational Swim Meet and was RosarianÕs coach for many years.
Cathy Reader, former Rosarian Athletic Director and Physical Education Teacher and current Director of Facilities, has been involved with the swim meet from its inaugural year. Over the last 25 years, she has played the roles of assistant for the meet, lifeguard, setup person, starter, and announcer. As Athletic Director, Ms. Reader continued the swimming progr once the pool was removed from RosarianÕs facilities in 2006.
For the last fourteen years, Jan Wallace and Ginny Downes have coached the Rosarian Academy Swim Te and have continued to grow the progr using the Lake Lytal facilities. Ms. Reader continues to be the starter and the announcer at the meets.
