The PWSL's most unusual season yet ended with some nailbiters across the league's divisional meets. First place in the white division was decided by just 13 points, and Westridge won yellow division over Victory Lakes by 128 points. There were more close battles for second place, as Red, Blue, and Purple divisions all had less than 100 points separating second and third.
League-wide, over 3000 swimmers participated in divisionals, 700 fewer than pre-pandemic 2019. 45% of swims were faster than their seed time. 16 teams beat 82 team records, and six new league records were posted.

It was great to see old and new faces at the cyber meet on Saturday. Thanks again to everyone for their patience and support in making this season happen; I know the kids, their families, and all of us who spent so much extra time merging and fixing virtual meets are hoping for 80 in-person swim meets next summer!
I promise to get with every team who has requested help with software and records; we'll be seeing you this fall to start planning for 2022.
All meets this season are being sent to reachforthewall.org and being uploaded to the site.
