Athletes at UNCW who have competed on a team for the entire 4 years of college, get recognized in the "Sashing Ceremony".
One more step toward graduation, one more chance to celebrate Daniel and his accomplishments.
It was a dirty rotten shame that his current coach decided not to attend. The diving coach had the honors of talking about the swimmers. He talked about the obstacles the kids had seen, among them are: the school threatening to discontinue the swimming program and the very much loved coach retires. He was correct to say that these guys had persevered and fought to be a success. The retired coach was in attendance, although he did not speak. It meant a lot to Daniel for the coach who recruited him to be there.
I'm so very proud of Daniel's accomplishments and his tenacity for his sport.
