Hello TorpedoesNation,


THT Summer Steam

                So many thanks to all of you parents that helped us run a great meet.  Our visiting teams enjoyed themselves, and had some solid, fast swims. 

                I want to say a special thank you to Edie Myers, who flew solo in running her first ever meet as Meet Director.  That is a big job, and I want to say thank you specially to her for taking on that new job.

                We had numerous swims that were best times (over 60%).  We had many new cuts, so a special good job to Claire Parsons for a zone cut in the mile, Mea Targett, Layla Johnson, and Mackenzie Engle for new divisional cuts.               

                High point winners included Layla Coleman (6+Under Girls), Ty Lauritzen (7-8 Boys), Demme Hancewicz (11-12 Girls).

Great job to all Torpedoes and families!
