LAC has great meet at Clovis!

Congratulations to LAC swimmers who competed at Clovis. We had an awesome meet and the team spirit and parent contribution was fantastic! Our team placed 4th overall at the meet out of over 20 teams. We had about 80% best times and of the swims in finals, our finals improvement was around 75% which is fantastic. Natalie Urban also won an exciting swim off with the entire team supporting her. The swim off showed the strength of team support. 

WE FOCUSED ON EXELLENCE IN: ATTTITUDE, EFFORT, AND SKILL and this helped us stay in the moment and have a consistently great meet. 

Every session, LAC parents had more timers than any other team. Without you all, the meet would've run much slower! Thank you parents! 

Thank you Doug daCosta for setting up dinner on Saturday night. It was great! 

Also, thank you parents for transporting and setting up pop ups.
