This was the second swim meet of the comeback 2022-2023 season and the first time at the AAFB pool since October 2019.

Today’s meet (and the October 2019 meet) would not have been possible without the exceptional generosity and sponsorship of Wing Chaplain Lt. Col. Kelvin W. Francis to whom GSF expresses its sincere thanks and gratitude.

GSF also extends its thanks to the members of the AAFB community who went out of their way to support our swim athletes, including Maj. Jessica L. Zamparini, Commander, 36th Force Support Squadron; Mr. Gerard Barnes, FSS athletic director; Ms. Erin Criss, head lifeguard; the personnel of the SFS/VCC; the AAFB Pubic Affairs office; and of course, home team and GSF member, the Andersen Marlins!
