The Husky Swimming Foundation announced this week that their efforts to reinstate the University of Washington Swimming and Diving teams will now include the revival of the Husky Invitational.
What: 62nd Annual Husky Invitational
When: December 2-5, 2010
Where: Weyerhauser King County Aquatic Center, Federal Way, WA
This is exciting because these guys are showing a real commitment to raising awareness and raising funds to restore the Huskies program. They are getting creative and they just might be showing us all ways that we can protect our home programs from the axe as well.
The Athletic Department at UW donated all of the left over Husky Swimming gear for them to sell and the foundation has recruited alumni and past coaches, like long-time coach Earl Ellis to get involved with the event.
We can only hope that the meet is a success and that there are more events to come. Go Dawgs!
