Turman specialized in the 200 & 400


individual medley and the 200-butterfly
-winning local and national honors.



After graduating from Cave Spring in
1985 - those honors led him to sign a
letter of intent to swim at Virginia
Tech.



There - he still holds a pool record in
the 400 individual medley from 1986.

Those who knew Chris Turman say
regionally he took the sport to another

teaching children to love the water as
much as he did.
