Honoring Katie Grauman Grier: We have re-named our meet permanently in honor of our Club Tribe teammate and dear friend, Katie Grauman Grier, who died of cancer in 2021 at age 43. In addition to being an incredible mom, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, and teammate, Katie was named the USMS Pool All-Star for Women 40-44 in 2019, earned National #1 rankings 17 times in inidividual events and 20 times on relays, and currently holds 7 USMS national relay records. Katie was Club Tribe's center of gravity, and she made incalculable contributions to Club Tribe and this meet. Your participation in this meet helps us honor Katie -- thank you.
