Mini FISH Finish Second at Mini Champs
Finishing in Second Place, 122 best times, dropping 349.64 seconds, brand new team caps, singing silly songs to get fired up, swimming new races, incredibly fast relay splits, exciting finishes, sending our 8 year olds off in style, chocolate mustaches, and going into every race with excitement and NO Fear led to a great weekend at the 2017 Mini Champs in Olney, MD.
The FISH Swim Team was represented by 61 swimmers at this year’s Mini Champs Swim Meet. Each and every swimmer came to race and all swimmers walked away with smiles on their faces as they swam new best times, laughed with their friends, experienced the excitement of swimming relays, and made memories to last a lifetime. FISH finished in SECOND PLACE behind RMSC with a score of 1,227 points.
FISH walked away with a total of 122 best times for a total time drop of 349.64 seconds. We also walked away with 19 top 3 individual finishes and 3 relay top 3 finishes.
