2010 FSA Division II League Champions

Welcome to the Gator blog!


Gators place 2nd in State

What an amazing way to end the summer swim season!  The Green Mountain Gators placed 2nd in the Colorado Summer Swim Club State meet.  It was amazing to see the energy and determination all the swimmer brought to this meet.  The Gators showed up ready to swim and that is what they did.  Way to go Gators and we are excited for next summer already!


Movie Night at the pool: Wednesday, August 3rd

We would like to end the swim season with a fun (non-swimming) event.  We would like to invite all Gators to a movie night at the pool.  This event is for swimmers only.

Please plan on arriving to the pool around 8:15pm as the movie will begin at 8:30pm.  
We will be showing Surfs Up.
The swim team will provide some snacks and water but feel free to bring something of your own to snack on. 
Come in your pajamas and bring your blanket and pillow (or something to sit on).  Parents you can drop your swimmer off and return to pick them up.  
There will be NO swimming on this night.  Parental guidance will be provided.  

Hope to see you there

Swimmers of the week

Swimmers of the Week: 

Female: Lexie Lamping! 

Lexie had an outstanding league meet, dropping mad time in every race she had. It wasn't just the time drops, but the way in which she approached each race that really impressed the coaches. Her enthusiasm and confidence in herself combined with her continued effort in practices throughout the year led to major time drops and place improvements. Lexie gave 100% effort this weekend, and was a big part of why the team did so well. 

Great Job Lexie! 

Male: Isaac Perez-Williams 

Isaac had a lights-out meet this weekend. He was clearly in the zone for all of his races, and went after each race with a desire to win. His competitive spirit and focus was fun to be around, and had noticeable effects on his races. No matter the circumstance, relay or individual, ahead or behind, he gave it his all to get to the wall first. 

Great weekend Isaac, well done! 


No night practice

We just wanted to let you know there will be no evening (12& under) or night practice (upper division) this week.  Thank you to all the 12&under swimmers who participated in our first evening practice session and to the upper division and parents who attended the night practice.

We plan on seeing all swimmers and families at the banquet on Wednesday night.


Al Hofstra is the recipient of the FSA Betty Woods award

The Green Mountain Gators would like to recognize Al Hofstra as he received the Betty Woods award this weekend at the 57th FSA League meet.  

The Betty Woods award was created by the Foothills Swim Association in 2010 after Betty passed away.  Betty was a valuable asset to the swim league and they want to carry on her tradition by recognizing people within the League that posses the same qualities and passion for the sport.
The objectives of Foothills Swimming Association are:
  1. To promote and encourage competitive aquatics.
  2. To promote good sportsmanship in competitive aquatics.
  3. To provide an opportunity for summer club swimmers to compete.
This award is created in honor of Betty’s 50+ year contribution to the Foothills Swimming Association.  The award is intended to recognize a person for their contribution to the FSA.  

Nominee: Al Hofstra               Home Team if applicable: Green Mountain Gators
Describe the nominee’s contribution to the Foothills Swimming Association:

I would like to nominate the Betty Woods award to one of the hardest-working contributors to the FSA, Al Hofstra. Al has been working for Green Mountain Swim Club ( a part of the FSA ) for over 10 years. Through his work, he has helped swimmers realize their full potential and has encouraged them to swim. He worked not only as an official during meets, but a swim team board president and has done volunteer work to help maintain the GMSC pool.

Al Hofstra has been a part of the swimming community since he was a child. His parents, Warren and Mary Hofstra, helped found the Terrace Club in the 1960’s, where he swam from age 7 to 17. He earned league titles at ages 8 and 12. When he was 13 the Terrace Club joined FSA. Al also swam on the varsity team for Lincoln High School where he earned an all-city title for the 50 and 100 free. He was also the captain of the swim team at Colorado College, when he joined the Green Mountain Gators as a coach. For two years, Al coached GMST's eight and under age division. In one of the years that he coached, GMSC won League in the eight and under age division. In 2005, his daughter Tess swam as a gator and Al began his volunteer service. He officiated, timed, and maintained the pool. In 2010 he was elected the position of Swim Team board president and head official at Green Mountain, which he held for five years. Even after passing the baton this year, he continues to support both the pool and the FSA team with his work and his wisdom.

A big thank you to Brooke Tompkins who wrote this submission and helped share Al's love for swimming with all of us.

League Update

The first two days of League went incredibly well. We as coaches are so proud of all that the swimmers have accomplished so far this weekend. We had two relays break FSA records today; the 13-14 boys medley with Andrew Penn, Quinn Meinert, Alex Granquist and Ben Hofstra as well as the 15-18 girl medley, with Kaylyn Schull, Sydni Sich, Ianna Debrunner, and Amanda Ballard! On top of that, we had countless best times and great swims from all age groups. One Applewood Knolls coach pulled me aside to tell me "Green Mountain is swimming with a lot of heart today", a true reflection of the effort the team has put forth.

Tomorrow lets keep up the great work. Lets make sure we continue with the positive and encouraging thoughts, the continuous support of one another, and the effort that has put us in the position we are. I urge the swimmers to not worry about points, rather focus on the races and making sure that they are swimming as well as they can!

Warmups will be at 7:00 again tomorrow, so I ask that everyone swimming is behind the blocks and ready to go by 6:55. Get some good sleep tonight, I will see you in the morning.

Coach Porter


Practice Time

Tomorrow's practice will start at 7, not 6:30. Enjoy the extra 30 minutes of sleep! 400 swimmers do not need to come until 9:15.

See you in the morning,

Swimmer of the Week

Congratulations to all swimmers who have qualified for league and state! Its been a great season so far and the coaches are excited to see what happens at League and State.

Male Swimmer of the Week:

Sonny Donati!

Sonny had a good week of practice and topped it off by getting his state time in the backstroke at the last chance meet. He is extremely close to getting the state cut in the 25 free, which is one the most difficult times to make. Sonny has routinely displayed a great attitude coupled with a strong work ethic in practice which has led to noticeable improvements in his swimming. It will be fun to see what happens with Sonny come this weekend!

Female Swimmer of the Week:

Brooke Tompkins!

Throughout Gator Week, Brooke displayed an excellent determination to fight through every set, making sure she gave full effort every day. Brooke made sure to provide encouragement to the swimmers around her and led by example. Her continuing team spirit is prevalent both in practice and the meets, always cheering others on and staying positive at all times. We as coaches enjoy seeing swimmers not only working hard to improve, but working hard to help others improve as well, just as Brooke has done all year. Great job Brooke!

See you guys tomorrow,

Coach Porter

Saturdays meet at Applewood Knolls

Can you believe that Saturday is our last regular summer swim meet?  What happened to the summer?  It is amazing to see how the swimmer have developed and improved in their skills.  We are excited to have their kids bring their "A" game to the meet on Saturday and finish the season strong.

Due to the size of the team we are swimming against we are only sending a maximum of 2 relays per age group.  We wanted to let everyone know this so you understood if your swimmer wasn't on both relays.  We are going to try our best to let all swimmers that are able to swim in one of the relays for their age group.

We will have all the individual and relay entries posted tomorrow morning.
See you all Saturday!  Go Gators!


Tomorrows Intrasquad meet

I have a feeling tomorrow night is going to be a great night.  The pool will have food and entertainment!  What else can you ask for?  The only other thing we need is to make sure you volunteer so we can have a meet.  Please sign-up if you haven't already done so. 

There will be hamburger and hot dog meal available for purchase tomorrow as well as additional items from the snack shack.  All you need to do is show up (with money).

The free entertainment will come after all our kids swim.  Please make sure you stay around and watch the coaches relay (and the parents relay).  Yes parents I mentioned your relay again.  This is just to make sure you don't forget your swimming suit or something important.  I have heard that we have had parents "practicing" at the night practice so it sounds like you are ready.

See you all tomorrow night. 


Thank you to the many parent volunteers

I just wanted to send a thank you message to all the parents who volunteered at the meet on Saturday.  It was a long and HOT day.  We had parents volunteer for all three shifts, we had parents volunteer for a shift and stay until the end of the meet and we had parents volunteer who didn't even have a swimmer.  You are all amazing and we appreciate your help.  Thank you for all the support you give to the Gators!  It takes each and every family to makes these meets successful for our swimmers.

Swimmer of the Week and Gator week notice

Great job to everyone who swam this past weekend! We had some fantastic swims Saturday against AAC, and although everyone was a little tired Sunday there were still great swims and a lot of time dropped. And now your swimmers of the week:


Emma Neuroth!

Emma took first place overall for the 13-14 girls division at the Pentathlon and also had a strong meet on Saturday. Her attendance was consistent all week, and when she was in the water she was working hard the whole time, continuing a trend she has had all year. Her continued dedication and competitive spirit has led a strong 13-14 division this year. The coaches are excited to see what she will do come league and state. Keep up the good work Emma! 


Jaimen Whittenburg! 

Jaimen swam incredibly well on Sunday, placing second overall for the 9-10 boys division. It was fun to see all the hard work Jaimen puts in at practice day in and day out pay off in a big way. He was either faster than or right at his seed times in his races, which is impressive after such a long week of swimming. Jaimen is always consistent at practice, working hard and constantly improving. Great job Jaimen! 


Today was the introductory day to Gator Week, a week where are sets are tougher and we ask a lot of the swimmers during practice. The sets will be getting tougher and tougher each day, ending with a “game day” of sorts on Friday. Make sure to stay rested and hydrated all week! We know the practices will be tough, but we ask that all swimmers come with a positive attitude and readiness to work hard to ensure good and healthy workouts.

Good Luck!

- Porter

Swimmer of the Week

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July / weekend with no swim meets!

Here are the swimmers of the week:

Male Swimmer:

Kai Langan!

Kai showed up to practice with endless energy and an excitement to swim all last week. Every time Kai was near the water he had a giant grin and was ready to go, eager to get in. Despite no meet, he put a lot of good hard work in this past week. Congrats Kai!

Female Swimmer:

Jensen Wehri!

Jensen worked hard at all practices last week, constantly working to improve. She brought a positive attitude to the practices as well as a strong work ethic. Jensen's positivity is contagious, impacting everyone else in her lane (which is fun to see as coaches). Keep up the great work Jensen!

We are about to hit a tough stretch of the season, with 5 swim meets (4 meets and 1 inter-squad) in the next two weeks, followed by League and then State. I urge all swimmers to attend practice as regularly as possible. The practice difficulty will be ramped up for the next two weeks so come prepared!
