Mighty Marlins in Age Group Championsh​ips

In USA Swimming's Age Group Championship for Illinois, our batch of Blue Marlins showed they fit right in with the best of the best.

Just earning the right to swim at our home away from home, the Rec Plex facility in Pleasant Prairie, Wis., was a huge achievement.

And to finish among the top 20 and score points, well, that's just proof of how hard our athletes, coaches and families have worked to excel this summer.
