In Memory Of Lacy Anderson (Andy) Craver
April 1, 1977 – January 14, 1990
Andy Craver was a member of the Winston-Salem YMCA (WSY) swim team prior to his tragic death in January of 1990. His hard work, effort, and determination resulted in a Top 16 time in the 100 Fly. Andy is remembered fondly by all those who knew him, especially the many friends he made while participating in the sport of swimming. As a testimony to Andy’s exemplary attitude toward swimming, the TYDE swim team, (formerly WSY), through North Carolina Swimming, gives an award each year that bears his name, the Andy Craver Determination Award.
The purpose of this award is to recognize a NCS male or female age group swimmer who during the previous short or long course season, in the opinion of the selection committee, best demonstrated determination and dedication to the sport of swimming by:
- Overcoming personal and/or physical obstacles, and thus providing a positive example;
- Demonstrating a positive work ethic and a high level of self-motivation; and
- Demonstrating a positive attitude toward peers, coaches, and swimming in general.
