There will be a reunion at the University of Texas at Arlington on May 21, 2011 for all swimmers from UTA or swimmers coached by Easterling.

Easterling coached UTA from 1966 - 1970 before taking over as coach at North Carolina State for 22 years. While at UTA, and as coach of Arlington and Burford Swim Clubs, he developed a number of championship caliber swimmers including Doug Russell (1968 Olympics - 2 golds), Ronnie Mills (1968 Olympics - bronze) and Ric Nesbit (1968 NCAA champion).

The accomplishment Easterling and those swimmers, in such a short time, is remarkable.

Coach Easterling, Doug Russell, and Ric Nesbit will be there for sure. If you swam at UTA or on any team coached by Easterling, please come if you can. Send me a private message and I will send you the details.
