- Clara K. from SPIRE won the Merit Award
- Claire P. from Hawken won the Open Water Swimmer of the Year
- Meet Entry Chair, Sarah Tobin won the Board of Directors Award

This is a testament to all of our hard-working Silver Dolphins, parents, coaches and staff - congratulations team! We also will be working on distributing the IMX and IMR swim caps over the next couple weeks for those Silver Dolphins who scored.

May Madness Meet Workers
LESD is honored to host the May Madness meet on 5/11 at Hawken Upper School. Since this is a team hosted meet, we heavily rely on parents to make the meet a success for the swimmers. Our team service policy does apply for this meet.
