In 2012, Leslie Scott was awarded the prestigious Kerry O’Brian award by the United States Masters Swimming.
Below is how the USMS described Leslie’s achievement:
“USMS is proud to honor Leslie Scott with a 2012 Kerry O’Brien coaching award. She has proven that vision, enthusiasm, and persistence are a hard combination to trump. Seeing one discontinued program as an opportunity to create something fresh and new, the now 100+ membership of the club is so grateful that she continued to knock on closed doors, weaved her experience as Aquatics Director, teacher, coach and athlete into a convincing argument that was undeniable as to what might be. She demonstrated the innate ability to fuse passion, energy, and creativity that has some reaching for new fitness goals and others reaching touch pads faster than they ever have done, making the Greenville Splash Masters a true testament to what is possible with a great coach like her”.
The Greenville Splash Masters program has become the largest Masters program in the history of the South Carolina Upstate with team members that have accomplished National/State records and an All-American relay teams. Congratulations to everyone!.
