The Shippensburg University Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) hosted its 12th annual “Fun Swim Meet” event Dec. 5 at Donald N. Miller Pool inside Heiges Field House.
The annual event is open to Special Olympics and local youth, including the Circle of Friends. SAAC works in conjunction with both organizations each year to provide opportunities for competition at Shippensburg University.
Jen Flinchbaugh was once again instrumental in working with SAAC and the many family members necessary to coordinate the event. She is an assistant swimming coach, SU women’s swimming alumna and a teacher in the Shippensburg Area School District.
Flinchbaugh spent multiple years with SU’s SAAC during her time as an undergraduate.
The “Fun Meet” Series is orchestrated by SAAC annually. It typically includes a track & field event in April also.
Bill Morgal is Sports Information Director at Shippensburg University.
