THE BLUE BANNER SWIM continued from page 9 that was missing from her life and she will always continue to swim after she graduates. For her, it wasn’t just about the swimming, but about the team. “Last year we were such a small team and we went to the championships. We were the smallest team there and it came time for Galen, who was a freshman, to swim the mile. She is a great swimmer obvi ously, she looks like a fish in the water, but we weren’t ex pecting much as such a small team. She ended up getting second over everybody, and seeing Galen up there with Florida and Campbell who have huge amazing swimming programs was amazing. It just showed that UNC Asheville was here and here to stay. I will always remember this moment as the best moment in my swimming career,” Gil lespie said. Gillespie said she plans on finishing up this season strong and will complete her swim ming career next month at the Coastal Collegiate Swim ming Association Conference Championships, Feb. 19-22 in Tennessee. Injuries during an athletic career can be the most dev astating thing to happen and staying strong and committed becomes hard, according to Gillespie. “When you’re at the end of the rope, tie a knot and hang on,” said Gillespie. BIG WIN continued from page 7 After tonight’s game Ashe ville advances with a 5-4 re cord in conference and Liberty continues with a 7-2 record in conference. “It’s anybody’s game in the Big South right now,” Kirkpat rick said.
