We'll Miss You, Karin

Karin Hurley was the head coach of Temescal Masters for 13 years until she retired in 2012. She built the team from a scrappy group of people getting together to swim into a vibrant community of over 200 swimmers. She touched the lives of hundreds of people along the way. Everyone who came to the team was greeted with a friendly welcome. Faster swimmers were encouraged to focus on their stroke and slower swimmers were given encouragement to improve their stroke. We are all indebted to her.
