More than 14,000 athletes from nearly all 50 states competed in this year’s games at Liberty University from July 31 to Aug. 4. Athletes of all ages competed in 40 different sports from figure skating to baseball to karate and brought an $8 million to $10 million boost to the Lynchburg economy.
One of our guests at the COMFORT INN & SUITES in Lynchburg, Yvette Revilla from Corpus Christi, Texas was featured on WSLS Television: https://www.wsls.com/news/virginia/lynchburg/state-games-of-america-wraps-up-its-run-in-lynchburg
“Our boys and girls have all worked really hard,” said Yvette Revilla, the coach of a south Texas swim team who came to Lynchburg to compete. “We’re a big state and we have big hearts, so our swimmers have big goals.”
Revilla says this is the first time many members of her team have traveled outside Texas for any reason. She says the competition left her team with a good impression of Virginia.
“Everything has been perfect, honestly,” Revilla said. “Everything has been beyond our expectations. That has made it a great trip in itself.”
Regarding their stay at the COMFORT INN & SUITES in Lynchburg she added, “The staff was AMAZING Steve and David made us feel so welcomed and as if we were at home. We have stayed in six different hotels this year and have NEVER felt so at home and welcomed. I absolutely loved these two gentlemen. Their personalities the moment those glass doors opened they were happy, loving, and inviting. I can go on and on about them both.”
