Even a year after his passing, Coach Skip Gilkerson still makes it to every swim meet. Where ever the rattler swim team goes, Skip’s poster sized photo can easily be found near by. Coach Skip touched the hearts of all his swimmers and was a monumental inspiration to those who surrounded him. In his honor, we have the perfect combination of competitive spirit and fun known only as “The Coach Skip Gilkerson Holiday Sprint Classic”. This year 6 teams competed in the swim meet with the Rattlers winning second place over all. With every passing swim meet, more and more of our swimmers are setting personal records and blowing their competition out of the water. We’ve seen that there is no limit to what these swimmers can achieve, especially as long as they have Coach Skip still coming to every swim meet.
