Parents and Swimmers,
The Purple v Black Meet was a great success. Special thanks to all the parents and volunteers that helped to run the meet. The first meet of the year is always a little hectic but this one ran very smoothly and that is a large part due to the parents that helped volunteer throughout the meet.
Congratulations to all the swimmers that participated in their first swim meet. We had a large number of kids swimming in their first meet with WAVE and they figured things out very quickly and swam awesome. Nice Work!
Great job to all the swimmers that swam in the meet. We had tons of best times throughout the day. Their hard work and commitment in the pool is already paying off. I am very excited to see everyone swim again in a few weeks.
Lastly, Congratulations to the Black Team on being this years’ 2nd place team. They fought very hard but Purple squeaked out another win with a 9-6 victory.
