2017 Swim-a-thon Honors
We are very excited to share some news from USA Swimming. Each year over 550 teams host a Swim-A-Thon across the country. They award 4 teams the Gold Medal title, with each title being determined by their respective club-size category. The Hillsboro Swim Team has won the Gold Medal title for our 2017 Swim-A-Thon! This is the first time they have received this honor. The HEAT will automatically be entered into the Grand Prize drawing, which will be announced on Thursday, February 15th.
USA Swimming 2018 Western All-Star Team
Sixteen members from the first ever Western Zone All-Star team will be traveling to the 2018 Black History Invitational in Washington D.C., February 16-18, 2018. Each year, USA Swimming selects two all-star-teams to compete at an event celebrating Diversity. Athletes are selected to the Western team based on their 2017 performances. This is the most competitive selection process we have ever had,? said Jeremiah Stanton of Albuquerque, NM, who heads the selection committee for the West, ?it is difficult to select just 16 athletes when there are 28 events. Those selected are our most well-rounded and talented swimmers.
Oregon Swimming will be represented by 4 athletes: Francesca Criscione (CAT), Jensen Ervin (PAC), Owen Ngan (MHA), Gabrielle Smit (CAT)
