Welcome to the official WETS website!
That’s right… On behalf of our officers and directors WETS has a fantastic new website. Thanks to our new treasurer, Scott Mactier, and other officers we are proud the present www.WETSwim.org. Here you can see lots of great WETS and Longhorn swimming and diving news and stay connected. It’s also a convenient way to pay your Dews. (Check the list of heroes, and if you are not on it, then send a few bucks.) We are doing good deeds and having fun! We created this site to compliment our mission:
“WETS was organized in 1968 when a group of former Longhorn swimmers, divers and coaches, headed by Tex Robertson, met to promote University of Texas aquatic excellence. The initial goals of WETS were to: Honor the past accomplishments of UT swimmers and divers; Promote the present and future success of Texas Swimming and Diving; and to Provide a common forum for all former Texas Swimmers, Divers, Coaches and Fans to gather and stay connected.”
Our Longhorn Men were again so close to winning an 11th National Championship, finishing 2nd to California for the 2nd year in a row after winning in 2010. The team won 2 relays and 3 individual titles and Coach Matt Scoggin was named coach of the year while senior Drew Livingston won diver of the meet. The women cracked the top 10, finishing 9th. We are so proud of the strong teams our Longhorns have every year! Please check out complete details and some wonderful photos at www.texassports.com.
It’s an Olympic year and there will be lots more great WETS news to follow on our website or through the Longhorn Swim Network which Jill Sterkel handles so well. If you are not on the email list then contact Jill
It’s a great time to be a Longhorn. HOOK’EM!
