What a weekend for our Velocity swimmers who attended the Niagara Gold Championships held at Ithaca College this past weekend. We sent 34 swimmers this year which was 14 more than ever before and we finished 7th overall with 1,648 points and both of those achievements are the programs best ever!
Congratulations to everyone who attended. The excitement on the pool deck was contagious and watching our parents in the stands cheering for all our swimmers was fun to see. A big thanks to coaches Liz, Bryan and Ted for all their efforts this weekend. You all did an excellent job throughout the year and it really showed up this weekend!
