CONGRATULATIONS to all of the swimmers who participated in the NBAC LC Champs this past weekend at Meadowbrook Aquatic Center! Our MAC swimmers enjoyed some very fast swims, as did their competition, in addition to reveling warming up in the same pool while Mr. Phelps was finishing up some training on Saturday morning! It's so awesome to be so close to and inspired by such greatness, and two quotes from John Maxwell and Nelson Mandela, respectively, came to mind... "Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential," and "It always seems impossible until it's done." Several of our swimmers achieved great success at this very competitive meet and should be acknowledged for getting it done!
