Earlier this month, a pair of swimming officials were acknowledged for their time and effort by the Wyoming High School Activities Association and USA Swimming.

At the 2020 Wyoming High School Girls’ Swimming & Diving State Championship, George Mathes Jr. and George Mathes III were presented with special awards.

Mathes Jr. has been an official for 50 years. He received a commemorative award from WHSAA Commissioner Ron Laird for his dedication. Mathes Jr. was recognized during both the Class 4A and 3A finals on Nov. 6 and 7, 2020, in Laramie. He was one of the original coaches of the Laramie Swim Club that debuted back in 1968-69.

Mathes III was honored during the 3A finals on Nov. 7 with the ‘Officials in Excellence Award’ from USA Swimming.

WyoPreps offers our congratulations and thanks to both officials for giving their time to serve and help out Wyoming High School student-athletes for all these years.
