RMDA 12809 - LKWD
It was bound to happen. We finally get the whole team to the Metro Championships and we win by a significant margin. The Armada swam great for what seemed like a 10 day meet – it was actually only 3 very long days. Every day of the meet we extended our lead over our friends and rivals from Lakewood.
Also, we coaches would like to thank all of our great parents for the outstanding job you did taking care of the swimmers and the often thankless task of timing. I was very impressed every time I walked out to our team “encampment”, the size and presence of our team was amazing and we looked like an army ready to do battle – you made us coaches very proud. You deserved to win!
We had a few individuals that really rose above the rest in their age-group.
