First Time Recognitions:
1. Hosted our first ever USA Swimming meet called Beat The Freeze last September!

3. This is the first year we achieved a top 200 club ranking in the USA for 18 & under elite swimming scores, giving us the Bronze Club emblem! We are one of only 3 clubs from Sierra Nevada Swimming to make this ranking. Here is what Sierra Nevada recently sent out regarding that achievement:
