Introduction of 2023 Officers
John Leonard is serving his third year as President. He has four kids, with Eleanor (11) swimming strong since 2017; Eleanor also swims with Centreville Swim Club (CSC). His other kids are highly involved in theater, orchestra, soccer, & chess. His favorite memories range from how the coaches helped his kids make it through their first meets to the sportsmanship and pride show by all the swimmers at the Divisional and All-Star meets. You'll find John timing, marshalling, setting up, or any other volunteer position that needed to be filled...if he's not volunteering, then you'll find him eating a bulgogi-bacon-donut sandwich with hot sauce and jalapenos from the grill team.
Brandon Whitacre has been elected Treasurer. “This summer will mark our 13th summer swimming for Sully Station. We have three boys Tyler (17), Tucker (15) and Hunter (10) who all are active on the team. We joined the summer swim team as a way to interact with our neighbors and for the boys to stay active during the summer - little did we know that would turn into a love of the sport for the entire family. My favorite part of summer swim is watching the mini stars in their annual lollipop race.”
Kelly Dent has been elected Secretary. “Hello, my name is Kelly Dent and I am excited to be the new secretary for Sully Station. My family and I have been a part of the Sully Swim Family since my twins, Peter (11) and Lilly (11) joined the team as Ministars in 2018. Since then, they have become confident swimmers who absolutely love being a part of SST. I am looking forward to my new volunteer role and am excited to spend the summer with old friends, make new friends and most of all to cheer on our wonderful kids. Go Sully!”
Leslie Whitacre has been elected A Meet Rep. "Hello, my name is Leslie Whitacre and I am the A Team Rep for Sully Station. My family and I have been a part of the SST family for 12 years. I have three boys - Tyler, age 17, Tucker, age 14, and Hunter, age 10. I absolutely LOVE summer swim and I am beyond EXCITED to get the kids ‘in the water this summer’ and to reconnect with all of you. You will find me poolside this summer CHEERING ‘loudly and proudly’ for all of our SST swimmers."
Lisa Campet has been elected A Meet Assistant Rep. “Hello! My name is Lisa Campet and I am the current A Meet Assistant Rep for Sully Station. My family and I have been members of the Sully Swim team since 2012. I have three children. Ben is 16, Luke is 14 and Annabelle is 12. I look forward to meeting our new families and reconnecting with our veteran ones!”
Mary McCarthy has been elected B Meet Co-Team Rep. "Hello! My name is Mary McCarthy and I am one of the B meet reps for Sully Station along with Meredith Jones. My family and I have been a part of the SST family since our oldest daughter started in mini stars back in 2017. I have two daughters - Erin age 11 and Arya age 10. For the past few years I have supported the team by volunteering as one of the snack shack coordinators. I am looking forward to another fun swim season and learning more about swim in my new volunteer role. Go Sully!"
Meredith Jones has been elected B Meet Co-Team Rep. "Hi!! My name is Meredith Jones and I am one of the new B Meet Rep’s for Sully Station. My family and I have been members of the Sully Swim team since 2017. I have 2 boys who are both proud SST’s and love summer swim. Dylan is 12 and Camden is 8. One of my favorite things about summer swim are the friendships made and seeing all the kiddos have FUN! Can’t wait for another season - Go SST!"
Now that you have a sense of who we are, where are we going?
- Our swim team is a blast during the season and we will be extending that fun to include spirit nights at local restaurants in the coming months during the off-season, brought to us by the new social committee.
- We will be seeking corporate sponsors to invest in the team and help us make some of the capital purchases that need to be made including but not limited to practice flags, announcer equipment, and lane line reel replacements.
- We will also be partnering with the Sully Station HOA to host some fun community events.
We are looking forward to the season ahead and working hard behind the scenes to get it started. You can find the agendas and minutes to our meetings on the team website at https://www.gosully.com/
