Friday, June 3 – Alex Fix and Catherine Reed were treated to a VIP send-off as they headed off to the 2022 USA Games in Orlando — including a 3-car police escort through Libertyville. Many swimmers, friends, and family members from the Libertyville Stars and Libertyville Masters attended the send-off to show their support. The team was also thrilled to see Coach Ann Davidsen, visiting from California. Coaches, parents, and 2018 USA Games triple-gold medalist Brittany Nippes shared words of inspiration and encouragement before the caravan departed.
