The Herb Bradley Award, dedicated to the first coach and founder  of the club in 1948, is given to a swimmer who is dedicated to the sport, shows good team spirit and sportsmanship, contributes to club activities and is a good role model and team leader.                                                                              Congratulations to Megan Rousseau, who also broke three club records this year.
