NCSA Junior National Recap

Congratulations to all 13 swimmers who travelled to Orlando, Florida last week to cap off another great season for the Northern Kentucky Clippers. The meet was filled with great moments and tons of fun.

This year’s team was made up of 7 girls and 6 guys. Of the 13 only one swimmer (Ann Davies) had experience of a scoring level swim at this meet. To put this in perspective this meet is made up 1,750 swimmers from 300 teams across the country. 6 of the top 8 teams in the country were represented at this meet.  The Clippers managed to put some points up on the board individually and as relay teams. With 11 of these swimmers coming back next year, look to see great things in the future as well.
