    Timothy O. Pierce


    In 1962, while teaching swimming for the YMCA, Tim Pierce embarked on a career in competitive swimming which carried through three decades.  A graduate of Loyola High School and Loyola College, where he was a competitive swimmer and later coach, Tim taught for three years at Baltimore City College before coming to Loyola High School where he has worked as a teacher, coach and administrator  since 1967.  Tim has coached on practically every level from summer league to YMCA, from age group to Olympic medalist.  In 1968, Tim joined with Murray Stephens to co-found the North Baltimore Aquatic Club.  He and Murray coached the Loyola High School swim teams to numerous MSA titles and the National Prep School Championship in 1980.  On the administrative side, Tim was a member of the board (1969-1984) and Chairman of the South Atlantic AAU (1972-75).  Tim, a swim chairman, was instrumental in a variety of areas which led to vast improvements in the administration and conduct of SAA/AAU swimming meetings, events and competitions.  Among the accomplishment of the 16 member Board of Swimming during his tenure as chair include the purchase of timing equipment, initiating travel funding for National swimmers, the development of a meet directors handbook, a 300% increase in the number of individual swims in one year, and the hosting of Region II championships for three years.  Tim has served on Maryland Swimming’s Board of Review for six years.  He has also been honored by Loyola High School with the Blake Medal in 1991.  Tim was inducted into the Maryland Swimming Hall of Fame in 1986 before the establishment of dinners honoring the inductees.  Tim is therefore honored this evening in recognition of his years of educational and administrative leadership in the sport of competitive swimming.
