2019 Post Season News

Las Trampas Swim Team News

Congratulations, Las Trampas! We have much to be proud of in 2019.  Our Seahorses had an incredible summer. Times were popped again and again, new time standards were reached, our mudskippers debuted, and our developmental swimmers participated in their first meet,  28 swimmers qualified for County in 56 events, and the season culminated in a dramatic 4th place finish at the DCSL Championship, missing out on 3rd by just ½ a point.  Again, it goes to show that EVERY swimmer counts!  We brought home the long-coveted Pop award by popping an amazing 55% of our swims at League.  This should come as no surprise, since LT outpopped our opponents in every League dual meet this season!! IN FACT,  LT outpopped our competition in 16 out of 17 meets this season, including Battle of the Ages where there were 17 teams in attendance!

A huge thank you to Andrew and his team of wonderful coaches, who work so hard to ensure that our kids swim fast, pop times and have fun.  Thank you to all our star job and parent workers, who keep our meets and events running smoothly. 

Good luck to those swimmers continuing on to County.  To the rest of you, enjoy the rest of your summer and we'll see you at Awards Night on August 24th.
