BIG NEWS!!!! 
Eufaula City Schools to Partner with Eufaula Parks and Recreation to Offer AHSAA Swim Team:


Eufaula City Schools (ECS) will offer swimming as an additional sport next school year. ECS is partnering with Eufaula Parks and Recreation Department. Students in grades seven through twelve will be eligible to be a part of the swim team. Bryan Moore, Athletic Director for ECS stated, "We are so excited about the creation of our new swim team at ECS. By partnering with Keef Pettis and the Eufaula Parks and Recreation Department, we hope to provide a new opportunity for swimmers in the Eufaula area to swim for the school system along with their club team. With sectionals being hosted in Birmingham and the state meet held in Auburn, we hope to provide swimmers with additional venues in which tocompete. As much as the sport has grown, we hope this opportunity might also provide scholarship opportunities as well. At ECS, we believe in providing as many opportunities as we can, and we believe offering swimming will only help bolster an already extremely competitive athletics department."

The Eufaula Community Center, next door to Eufaula High School and across the street from Admiral Moorer Middle School, is home to a recently-renovated, eight-lane, competitive-sized swimming pool.

ECS's swim team will be coached by Eufaula WaveRunner's Head Coach, Carrie Smith, with 34 years of coaching experience through YMCAs, high schools and parks & recreation departments. Assistant Coach will be Lauran Young who has coached with the Eufaula WaveRunners for the past 3 years. Kelby Burgering, Admiral Moorer Middle School 8th grade English teacher and Eufaula High School Assistant Softball Coach, has been named sponsor for the ECS swim team.

Representatives from Eufaula Parks and Recreation stated, "The Eufaula Parks & Recreation Department is super excited about this long awaited partnership with the Eufaula City School System! We believe swim team participation provides multiple advancements for our youth; promoting fitness, aiding in their growth in other sports and learning how to set & meet goals. Our department cannot thank Dr. Davis & the EHS Athletics Department enough for turning this hope into a reality. Coach Carrie & Coach Lauran are most excited about the reinforcement of their already competitive recreational team and can't wait to dive into this new relationship!"

Look for an informational meeting to be held for parents and prospective swim team members in the near future.
