Great Job at Prelims and Northerns!
Our team continues to impress. We had over 110 kids participate in boys and girls prelims on Monday and Tuesday. There were some fantastic swims and great times. One highlight was our 8 & Under Boys, whose Free Relay won a swim off to move on to North Finals!
Northern Division Finals (held at our pool) was one of the most exciting meets that we have ever hosted. The pool and grounds looked fantastic. Every staff member was involved with both the preparation and running of the meet. Thanks for all of your help! Also thanks to the countless parent volunteers who helped with shirts, bleachers, officiating, refreshments, and clean up. Without you, this meet would have not happened.
And we won! Last year we just help off Sand Point by 11 points. This year was a different story. We had swimmers in almost every race and they sure brought it home. Among many great swims one stands out – The Senior Boys 200 Medley Relay. They set a new All-City record by over one second. It was an amazing race to watch.
