Swim fundraiser to benefit former Downers Grove North coach Redig
Aug. 30 alumni event includes team scrimmage, Wall of Fame dedication
DOWNERS GROVE – Tom Redig always preached a team-first mentality to his Downers Grove North boys swimmers.
But one of Burke Sims’ fondest memories of his high school coach came after an individual honor.
“The year I won the state championship [in the 500-yard freestyle] after taking second, he knew how hard it was for me,” said Sims, who earned a degree from Stanford and is working and preparing for graduate school in New York. “Just the look of joy on his face as he ran over and shook my hand, and then he gave me a huge hug when he gave me my medal.”
