Micah Sumrall wins Perseverance Award at Golden Goggles

11-22-2018

http://www.digitaljournal.com/sports/micah-sumrall-discusses-golden-goggles-wins-perseverance-award/article/537329

DIGITAL JOURNAL ARTICLE:
BY MARKOS PAPADATOS

New York – On November 19, competitive swimmer Micah Sumrall was the recipient of the “Perseverance Award” at the 2018 Golden Goggle awards. She chatted with this journalist on the red carpet.

The ceremony took place at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel, and the Golden Goggle awards benefit the USA Swimming Foundation. On being a part of the 2018 Golden Goggle awards, Sumrall said, “Wow, there are a lot of people. It is very interesting.”

This year, Sumrall bounced back in a big way, where she won the gold medal in the women’s 200 meter breaststroke at the Pan Pacific Championships in Tokyo.
Although she may have missed the 2016 Summer Olympic Team, Sumrall took time away from the sport prior to resurfacing with Chattahoochee Gold Swim Club earlier in 2018.

Thanks to the support of the age-group swimmers that she coaches, she won the 200 meter breaststroke title at the Phillips 66 National Championships this summer, and at the 2018 Pan Pacifics in Tokyo, she matched her career-best time in the 200 meter breaststroke, which was enough to win the gold in her first major international competition.

On her daily motivations, “I am a swim coach, as well as a swimmer right now. Just being able to come back and share some of my wisdom with the kids that I am working with, that really helps me as a swimmer as well. That’s really nice.”

For young swimmers, her advice was appropriate: “Listen to your coach.” “While they may hate that advice, I remind them that I was in their shoes. You just need to keep trucking through,” she said.

Sumrall defined the word success as “Managing my expectations and emotions at this point.”

Tupelo Meet

11-15-2018

The Tupelo trip was a smashing success. As far as we’re concerned, the aquatic center is the crown jewel of Tupelo (aside from perhaps the Birthplace of Elvis museum). The competition was solid and the team knocked out a lot of new state cuts. Each session opened with relays, including a mixed relay. The mixed relays provided some interesting match-ups!

Our bus travelers had a fun time at the Tupelo Buffalo Park & Zoo. The park had all sorts of wildlife, including buffalo, tigers, a giraffe, zebras, and much more. Some of the team members held a tarantula, others opted out. A zesty game of ultimate frisbee broke out. It was a grand time. In the evening, the 3 teams attending the meet all got together for movie night before resuming competition in the morning.

The best part of these team trips is the bonds that form between our swimmers from sharing a unique experience.

Giving Tree

11-15-2018

It is that time of year again, the Gold Swim tradition of adopting families at the Holiday season. This year we are adopting 5 families from our community and 8 families from Mexico Beach, Florida. These families will have only the Christmas we give to them. I don’t need to tell you the story for our Florida families. We all are aware of the Hurricane devastation. Our 8 families have lost EVERYTHING, home, clothes, keepsakes, you name it and it is gone. Three of the kids, we learned are living in a single family home with 4 other families that all lost their homes. The 5 families from our community have not suffered from a natural disaster but they are all on county support, have one parent and that parent is making $10 an hour or less. These 5 families are barely steps away from homeless. Please take a tag or two and get those items and make someone very happy at this time of year.

GUIDELINES:
1. Don’t forget to get a tag or two off the trees located at each pool. That’s right you can take more than one tag if you wish.
2. Don’t forget to SECURELY attach the tag from the tree on to the gift after you wrap it. YES, this year you can wrap your gifts but you MUST place the tag on the gift so we know which family and child to give the gift to.
3. If giving a Gift Card, put it in an envelope and attach the Gift Tag to the envelope. Please do not forget to put the amount of the card on the gift card!!!!!! If you don’t, we have to look it up and it takes a while.
4. The gift can be taken to your holiday party or given to your coach by December 12.
5. Did I mention that you can wrap your gift but please PUT THE TAG ON IT!!!!!!
6. Please participate as these families will only get the gifts and holiday spirit we provide them.
7. Know that your help will brighten the heart of another as well as your own!

Team Chattahoochee Gold Making an Impactful Splash

Uniting swim communities coast-to-coast
By Rachel McGovern

Swim Across America (SAA) unites swim communities coast-to-coast by hosting benefit swims that raise money for life-saving cancer research and clinical trials. In Atlanta alone, over 550 individuals and 40-plus teams gather each September at Lake Lanier to help fight cancer through swimming at SAA-Atlanta’s Open Water Swim.

One team stands out among many – Team Chattahoochee Gold from Cumming.

Team Chattahoochee Gold was started by Mary Ellen Warta, a championship swimmer and former American record holder in the 100-and 200-yard breaststroke, who uses her love for swimming to give back to her community.

“When SAA was starting the Atlanta event, Olympian Janel Jorgenson McArdle asked if I would like to be involved, given my swimming history and what our family was going through with our son, Jonas. He was three at the time and had just lost his right eye to retinoblastoma. Jonas was undergoing chemotherapy when we first started getting engaged with SAA,” said Warta.

“Team Jonas was the original team that raised money for five years and, with Jonas going into the Survivorship Program, we thought it was time for the team to be absorbed into a newly formed team, Chattahoochee Gold. Many of our swimmers from Team Jonas swam year-round at Gold so the idea to create a new team was an easy decision.”

Fundraising the SAA Way
Now Team Chattahoochee Gold is making big waves with their fundraising and participation efforts. The team continues to grow by word-of-mouth and a grassroots effort led by the Chattahoochee Gold coaching staff. The team is continuously thinking of new ways to raise funds. In June, they hosted a raffle at their last summer league meet, and while they have raised over $2,000 to date, they have set their sights on being one of SAA-Atlanta’s top teams again.

The team had a record event in September, raising $705,000 — well over the original $500,000 goal. “Our 1,200 participants, (swimmers, volunteers and spectators) 21 Olympians and 37 teams came out, and were so energized with the purpose of making waves to fight cancer,” Warta stated.

“I would encourage everyone to get involved with SAA,” Warta said. “It is one of the few organizations that I have been a part of where you actually see where your money is going. The research team that will receive the funding comes to the event and speaks to the swimmers about their progress. It is quite a sight – even with more impact when you hear that our SAA funds are pushing early-stage research into federally-backed clinical trials.”

17th Annual Chattahoochee Gold Invite Recap

10-23-2018

We had a great meet to kick off our season. There was excitement in the chlorinated air due to our especially spirited senior and national swimmers who volunteered to time for our morning session! This kept the spirits high and made for an exciting morning. Talk on deck about the new speeding ticket program fired up swimmers across the team to get those new personal best times! And let’s not forget about our fabulous announcer, Mr. Dotson keeping our spectators up to date on the swims. As always we want to thank our officials for working tirelessly on running the meet efficiently and smoothly and also thank you to our volunteer- both swimmers and parents!

Here is a link to the full meet results:

Here is the updated list of top 10 times for the season: https://www.teamunify.com/TabGeneric.jsp?_tabid_=83052&team=gacsci

Record (& close to it) Breaking Swims!
To add to the excitement we had 2 swimmers come within hundredths of seconds to beating two of the oldest records in the books for our team!
Will Griffis broke the 9-10 boys team record in the 200 breaststroke with a 2:51.98 and even more exciting Griffis is only .04 seconds off of breaking the 9-10 boys 50 breaststroke record set in 1996.
Juliliana McNeely is .40 seconds off the 8 & under girls 25 freestyle team record.
Grace Lee Lowry is .40 seconds off breaking one of the oldest team record for Chattahoochee Gold in the 8 & under girls 25 breaststroke set in 1995.
Ty McGinn is also on the heels of breaking the record for the 8 & under boys 25 freestyle.
Let’s make sure to cheer on our swimmers in the next meet to take down some records!

Swimmers of the Meet!
The swimmer of the meet is one swimmer from each practice group at each pool who is recognized for having a stand out meet. This could be because of notable performance, having a great attitude or something that stands out to the coaches!

Micah Sumrall wins Gold at Pan Pacific Championships and Senior Nationals!

08-17-2018

The Cherokee Tribune published the following article about Gold coach Micah Sumrall’s success last summer at Senior Nationals and the Pan Pacific Championships!

Micah Sumrall was ready to give up swimming for good, but after a change of heart, she showed she still had plenty in the tank, winning the 200-meter breaststroke at the Pan Pacific Swimming Championships in Tokyo.

The win earned Sumrall a spot in next year’s world championships in South Korea and a chance to return to the top of the swimming world.

“I love swimming, but I just had to take some time off,” Sumrall said. “Just to come back and be able to get on top was really cool.”

Finding success in the pool was nothing new to Sumrall.

She was a two-time all-American during her collegiate career at Auburn. She qualified for the 2012 summer Olympics and placed sixth in the 200 breaststroke.

Her career came to a halt, though, after she missed out on the 2016 Olympics by .54 seconds.

Following the disappointment, Sumrall took more than a year off from competitive swimming and moved to Woodstock to coach with Chattahoochee Gold, where she found a new inspiration.

“Becoming a coach and helping kids learn about the sport just set me up to come back and swim again. It’s humbling. It’s really cool to have made it back, especially after doing a mixture of swimming and working. When I was a professional a couple years ago, it was just my job to swim. That’s all I did. That aspect of it is different. It just gives me something else to think about. I get to divide it between my swimming and the kids that I coach.”

After some time back in the pool and some prodding from coach Mark Schilling, Sumrall began to train again.

She said she had not thought much about how far she wanted to take her rededication, but a slow start gave way to faster times.

“We weren’t sure how it would go,” she said. “We just took it one step at a time. I didn’t do any big meets until February. Before that, it was just really small baby steps.”

Sumrall’s first big test of her return came late last month at the national championships, where she surprised even herself by posting a 2:22.06 to win by 1.16 seconds over Bethany Galat.

The competition was even tougher last weekend in Japan, but Sumrall again rose to the occasion, holding off two-time Olympic gold medalist Lilly King over the final 100 meters to win by .24 seconds in 2:21.88.

“It’s pretty scary. Luckily, I got to race (King) in the morning,” Sumrall said. “The preliminary race played out almost exactly the same, except she was able to pass me. I knew going into the final swim it was something shew was going to do. It helped me keep my stroke together a little more and make sure I had enough distance between me and her for the last 50.”

With two big wins under her belt since her return, Sumrall will have plenty of momentum to take into next year’s world championships.

Until then, she will continue coaching and competing in smaller meets, but she said she is looking forward to continuing the journey that almost never got started.

“For now, I’m just going to go along for the ride,” she said. “I wasn’t even sure I would go to worlds if I made it, but I think I can get better. I would like to try that and see what I can do. If I’m satisfied with what I can do, I probably won’t go to the Olympics, but if I think I can still get better, I’ll probably try for the Olympics again.”

Swim Across America

05-30-2018

www.swimacrossamerica.org/goto/chattahoocheegold
Swim Across America is in its 6th year in Atlanta, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars annually for such worth causes as the AFLAC Cancer and Blood Disorder Center and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Last year, Chattahoochee Gold competed on behalf of Gold swimmer Jonas Warta, who successfully fought a battle with retinal cancer. For 5 years, the Warta family organized “Team Jonas” to help promote Swim Across America and its mission to unite the swimming community by raising funds for cancer research.

The Warta’s have now transitioned their team over to Chattahoochee Gold. We are honored to carry on their tradition by encouraging all of our members to participate in or donate to Swim Across America.

Swim Across America’s 2018 event will be held September 22 at Lake Lanier Islands. We invite all Sectionals, Sectionals Advanced, Senior, National, and High School swimmers to support this great cause. Participants will be excused from attending practice on September 22. There are several different race options (.5 mile, 1 mile, 5K, and 2 mile relay – 1/2 mile loops with up to 4 swimmers). We recommend you sign up for the 1 mile race, though some of our older, more endurance-inclined athletes may try the 5K (keep in mind it’s 5500 yards of lake swimming).

This event is not required, just encouraged! If you’re attending the event, please support “Chattahoochee Gold” (our Swim Across America team). To join us, click on the link and join the team.

If you’d like to participate, please sign up as soon as possible, as spots are limited. Thank you.
