CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR TEAM ON WINNING THE MISSOURI VALLEY SPRING CHAMPIONSHIPS FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW!
This feat required all swimmers, parents, and coaches to do their part and to enable our team to do its best--AND WE DID! Turns out that our best was repeating as short course Champions! In addition to winning the team title, our girls outscored all other teams' girls, and our boys outscored all other teams' boys. It was a very balanced win across age groups and sites! This is the one championship meet that swimmers of all ages on our team can band together at the same time to pursue a team title. This was very special, indeed!
Besides the fast swimming, our commitment to true team spirit was evident all weekend, as younger swimmers and older swimmers cheered each other on, parents helped each other get swimmers to 2 different pools, and our swimmers stormed up and down the pool to score as many points as possible, even when they were exhausted! Our team chemistry was on full display all weekend, and again especially on Sunday night when the team scores were announced. Our team remained seated in unity in the stands for the announcement of team and high point honors. No other team did that! Other coaches even commented that we looked like we were having fun--AND WE WERE!!!
CONGRATULATIONS TO EVERYONE! We are truly a team on the rise, and we are so proud to call ourselves
