Hello LAC Families, it is exciting to announce LAC has been ranked 32nd in the country for age group programs. This ranking is based on top 20 USA swims for 12 and under athletes and team size does not influence selection process. This means we are ranked 32nd in the country among all teams, even teams like Nation's Capital which has 3000 swimmers, or Santa Clara which has 1200 swimmers. With about 100 USA swimming athletes, it is an amazing accomplishment for our team to be ranked this highly in the country. We would like to recognize Maddie Gomez and Sophia Yu for scoring many of the points that led to this ranking. Way to go girls!
Coach Lisa has also been nominated as American Swim Coaches' age group coach of the year. She is one of 50 age group coaches in the country to recieve this nomination. As many of you know, May marks Lisa's 10th year with our team. We have watched her become a mother twice over and develop into one of the best age group coaches (along with Coach Theresa) in the country. Most importantly, anyone who knows Lisa would probably tell you she is an even better person than she is a coach, and that's saying a lot.
We are so proud of our athletes and of Coach Lisa for achieving this high honor!
Let's make a tradition of it! Remember, by focusing on Excellence in Attitude, Effort, and Skill each day, great results will follow!
