Congratulations to FAST on a fantastic Junior Olympics meet! Thank you to all the parents, volunteers and staff who generously dedicated their time to run an outstanding event. Coaches from several other teams were complimentary of the quality of the meet and the way in which FAST hosted. Many also noted the excellent performances of our athletes and our great team spirit.
Thanks especially to the FAST athletes for their incredible effort in and out of the pool. It was wonderful to see FAST swimmers racing and cheering hard and supporting one another throughout the week. Our competitiveness and team spirit were amazing and it showed in our results:
- The FAST Team finished in 3rd place overall out of 50 teams competing
- The FAST Boys placed 2nd
- The FAST Girls took 3rd
Additionally, FAST had multiple event champions and many of our first-time Junior Olympic swimmers earned second swims! The preparation and toughness of our swimmers was apparent in their great racing, outstanding time improvements and numerous podium finishes.
One of the most challenging things about being successful as a team is creating an environment which combines mutual support and respect with communal belief and pride. This past weekend FAST showed eveyone that we have all of these qualities in abundance -- great job FAST!
