College Swimming Article
When Bridgewater State and Elms College hit the pool on January 9th, both teams will be wearing the same cap. The decision was made in part because both campuses have been hit hard by the December 14th tragedy.
Bridgewater State Head coach Michael Caruso and Beth Yohai (K & B Sports) have designed a swimming cap for both teams to wear as a tribute to everyone that was affected by the tragedy.
"Bridgewater State University has been known as an institution that has put forth many teachers throughout the United States and across the world," Caruso explained. "We feel it is important to honor and support all the teachers, staff, students, and families of Sandy Hook Elementary School and the residents of Newtown, Connecticut."
The teams will be asking for donations at the meet on January 9, 2013 to help cover the cost of the swimming caps for both teams. Any donations over and above the cost of the caps will go directly to the United Way of Western Connecticut and the Sandy Hook School Support Fund.

The competition that day will also be broadcast with live sound and video over the internet from Moriarty Pool.
