Sullivan Blue Dolphins celebrated their 2019/2020 swimmer’s accomplishments the week of August 10.
Previously the SBD Board and Coaches would host a banquet for the athletes and family, but this year athletes were recognized over the course of a week. This allowed some parents to see awards being given without violating social distancing standards. Though we are proud of all the swimmers, we want to especially recognize the following for their hard work and accomplishments.
Dedicated Award recipients by age division: Mack Pogue (6 & under), Addalyn Hendry (8 & under), Tenley Stollard (10 & under), Mason Booker (11-12), Libby Henry and Isaac Chambers (13-14).
Newcomer awards were presented to Kara Chambers and Grant Martin.
Sportsmanship awards were presented to Kylie Voyles and David Eaton.
100 second time drop swimmers recognized were Max Kersten, Josh Cremeens, Libby Henry, Miles Kersten, Mason Booker, Kylie Voyles, Addie Hendry, Kaiden Smith, Cadence Schmohe, Zoe Conlin, Ellie Lehman, Addison Brush, Deanna Clark, Aidan Melvin, and Kennedy Fultz.
Goggle Award recipient was Madalyn Booker.
High Point Award recipients were Alivia Melvin and Ethan Schmohe.
Blue Dolphin of the year per practice group as voted on by their peers: Addie Melvin (Yellow Group), Logan Booker (Bronze Group), Josh Cremeens (Silver Group), Emily Crosier (Gold Group), and Madalyn Booker (Titanium Group).

Following the weeklong celebration, tryouts were held on August 14th. 26 new athletes were added to the roster that day bringing our small town team to three digits. Swim meets are being planned for the fall under strict participation and spectator guidelines. The Blue Dolphins would like to thank Sullivan and the surrounding communities for their ongoing support.
