One of BSAC’s very own traveled to Athens, GA to be honored in the University of Georgia’s Circle of Honor on February 2, 2018.
Chris Colwill is a two time Olympian who began diving right here at BSAC from a very young age. He continued his training throughout high school and into college, attending the University of Georgia where he became the 2006 NCAA Diver of the Year.
“I’ve worked hard to get where I am, but I appreciate all the support I’ve had along the way” said Colwill. All that hard work resulted in a medal at the NCAA Championships, SEC Championships, US Open, Canadian Cup, and FINA World Championships.
“BSAC is a second home” said Chris. “I love working with kids and teaching them what I learned growing up here. It brings me happiness and is a passion of mine.” After 23 years of diving, it only made sense for Chris to come back and pick up coaching five years ago. “I have a great time” Chris said. “I’ve had multiple divers make it to state championships already, I enjoy seeing my impact in their lives”.
If you see Chris around BSAC, be sure to congratulate him on this impressive achievement!
