SWIM HONOR . . . Former Stanford men's swimming head coach Skip Kenney has been named the 2013 recipient of the Speedo Lifetime Achievement Award, as announced Tuesday by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America Executive Board of Directors. The honor is given annually to the individual whose efforts best exemplify the integrity and ideals of collegiate swimming and who has achieved significant success in the sport while still imparting the educational and character building qualities of the collegiate swimming experience. The award will be presented at the CSCAA Annual Banquet on May 16 in Orlando, Fla. Kenney developed some of the top swimmers in the world during his time on The Farm. Through his three decades at Stanford he proved to be one of the most successful coaches in the history of collegiate athletics. In 2004, he was inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame, and a year later, he was elected into the American Swim Coaches Hall of Fame.
