WA Open and Pro Swim Series Meet Results
  • WA Open 
    • A big congratulations to all swimmers who participated in the Washington Open this weekend.  Everyone did a fantastic job, with a lot of new best times (not an easy feat coming off of Christmas).  Washington Open is a long meet, even if you're only participating for two days, but everyone stayed strong and swam well.
    • Shout out to Bella Cratsenberg for getting 6th place in the mile and Yanran Le for getting 6th place in the 100 Breast. Way to go ladies!
