May 4, 2007……Sumner County resident and Union Year Round Elementary 3rd Grader, Schuyler Daniel was recently awarded the prestigious “Excel Award” from Excel Aquatics for their achievements this past Short Course Swimming Season.
The Award is given annually at the Excel Spring Banquet to a select few recipients in each training squad, and is based on Good Sportsmanship, Dedication, Positive Attitude, and Leadership within the squads. Out of 350 swimmers over three training locations, only 14 swimmers were selected to receive the Award.
“As a 9 year old Schuyler has stepped up this year and really set the pace during practice. Her work ethic is outstanding; she listens to her coaches and implements the stroke techniques and strategies that are teaching her.” Excel Assistant Coach John Barnes stated. “We’re proud of Schuyler and what she has accomplished as one of the leaders within her training squad.”
