He will be competing in the 50-54 year age group and against the top 26 athletes from around the world in the Throws Pentathlon.

The Greystone Community Pool is the only pool in the Nolensville area that offers an open membership for the entire Nolensville community. The dilemma is the Greystone HOA (non-profit) has no mandatory HOA fees to help maintain the pool, and therefore it is left up to the yearly membership fees to cover all the costs i.e. life guards, chemicals, lawn care, and repairs. There are not enough funds currently to cover all the upkeep costs. This pool provides recreation for many of Nolensville’s children, and would be an enormous loss to the area should it close. Country Music Singer, Buddy Jewell, has graciously offered to hold a concert on July 24th at Nolensville Elementary School with proceeds going to fund the pool effort. Click Here for details.
