Senior Spotlight: Kailey Smith

Kailey joined the Bettas only four years ago, but she is thrilled to cap off her swim experiences with such a fantastic team with many treasured memories. As a military-connected kid, she started her swim career at the age of 6 on the US Coast Guard Dolphins Swim Team. Since then, she has been a member of nine different swim teams including summer swim, club, and high school teams due to frequent moves. Her favorite Bettas memories are swimming with and coaching her younger brothers Owen and Ollie, being a member of the record breaking relay team, and leading Betta cheers at meets. Kailey will be attending Otterbein University this fall, majoring in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Reminder from ODSL:
07/20/2023

Reminder from ODSL:

The Old Dominion Swim League (comprised of your 30 team representatives) voted earlier this year on a rule to not allow technical swim suits for any of our meets, dual or championship for all ages. This was done to even the playing field from a financial point of view. We also feel that to young developing swimmers and summer league swimming, tech suits, which are a coaching tool, are not needed.

A Technical Suit is one that has the following components:
a. Any suit with any bonded or taped seams regardless of its fabric or silhouette; or

b. Any suit with woven fabric extending past the hips.

(Note: WOVEN FABRIC-A suit with woven fabric and sewn seams that does not extend below the hips is permitted.)
(Note: KNIT FABRIC-A suit with knit fabric and sewn seams not extending below the knees is permitted.)

Speedo Aquablades (not extending beyond the hips for girls) are allowed for all swimmers.

We will be proactively monitoring suit selections at Divisional meets and All Stars.

Senior Spotlight - Maggie and Drew Collier

Maggie joined the Bettas as a mini in 2010. Her favorite stroke is Breaststroke. Her time in summer swim inspired her to join her club team, NCAP, as well as swim in high school for the Indy Swim Team. In addition to her love for the water, Maggie is passionate about art! You may have seen her Betta designs on the All Star signs throughout the years. She plans to attend Savannah College of Art and Design this fall, studying sequential art.

Drew joined the Bettas in 2012 as a 7 year old. He was inspired to join the team when he saw the swimmers, his good friends, walk across the stage for the end of season awards. Whatever got him to be up there with them, he was going to do! He took his love of swimming to both NCAP and Indy High School swim teams. He became a Betta intern and worked his way up to Assistant Coach, cheering for his swimmers all along the way. Drew plans to attend Savannah College of Art and Design this fall, studying film.

Both Maggie and Drew cherish their time on the Bettas! It’s been the best experience for them, giving them confidence in and out of the pool. The friends they have made throughout the years will be friends forever. Once a Betta, always a Betta.
