From KTXS News — The Texas Swimming and Diving Hall of Fame will be honoring McMurry University swimming head coach Bev Ball with its 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award, it has been announced. Ball will receive her award at the TSDHOF Legends Dinner on the campus of TCU on April 13th.

Ball is currently in her 12th year of guiding McMurry’s NCAA Division III program and 61st year, overall, of serving as a coach/instructor for the sport in the Abilene area. Prior to starting McMurry University’s swim program in 2000, Ball had a brief three-year coaching and teaching stint at Jefferson Middle School in Abilene before spending the next 46 years (1954-2000) at Abilene High and Cooper High School as swim coach for both teams.
