WASHINGTON, D.C. - As the 2011-12 swimming season approaches Gallaudet University’s head coach Bill Snape gains acknowledgement for his illustrious achievements in a September 29 article featured on Mallory Cage, writer for the online magazine, describes Snape’s journey from law-firm employee to Director of U.S. Deaf Swimming. Cage explains how Snape has taken what he has learned from Gallaudet and transferred it into making U.S. Deaf Swimming one of the top programs in the world.

Here is an excerpt from the feature article titled “A Cultural Celebration…and Some Fast Swimming” by Cage:

“During his eight years at Gallaudet, Snape has had many accomplishments including being named the Coach of the Year in the North Eastern Athletic Conference after both the men's and women's teams took home the championship in 2010-11. His success at Gallaudet led to a chance to be the head coach of the U.S. Deaf World Championship team and he is now the Director of U.S. Deaf Swimming.”

Snape helped guide the U.S. Deaf Swimming team to the overall team trophy at the 3rd World Deaf Swimming Championships this past August in Coimbra, Portugal.
