End of season update!!
Thank you for another excellent summer! We have had an amazing season full of dedicated practices, fast times, and happy smiling faces. Additionally, this year we ran a successful learn to swim program staffed 99% by current and past swim team members. Thank you everyone for your ongoing support.
We had a phenomenal fund raising this year for the Sedona Mile and exceeded our goal of 5000.00. To date we have raised just over 6500.00.
Special thanks to all of our swimmers who raised money and had their friends and neighbors contribute. Huge thanks, and kudos to Andrew Tate and his family, Coach Lauren, Coach Beck, Aiden Beck, Sarah Reed, Emma Warner, Noah Bohmen, and Skyler Lee Eason for bringing in top donations. Many of our swimmers had friends and relatives donate on line and your sponsors may have donated as “unspecified” with a general donation to the team. We thank you and them whole-heartedly.
Your swims were fantastic! The entire coaching staff is impressed with your incredible tenacity and we are pleased to see your persistence. You rock!
If you have yet to turn in your fund raising money, please do so as soon as you are able, and if you have any friends who would like to donate to our team, we will leave the page up for a few more days.
----Yesterdays Verde Valley Invitational was a lot of fun!!! We made it thru the day with out any rain or lightning delays! Wooo hoo. Your sportsmanship and camaraderie were excellent, and it is awesome to see so many SST friendships and supporters on deck and in the stands. This is what swim team is all about. We had a number of top finishes in every age group. Every single swimmer had at least one time drop!!!!
Our [annual] after meet Pizza Party was cool, and I’d like to thank everyone who came and participated in our team event.
A special thanks to our SST parents who have helped with our team this season who have volunteered, and additionally have driven our swimmers to practice, and to swim meets. You are a huge component to successful Swordfish and we thank you very much.
----Moving forward, we are in the process of ordering our Mile prizes. Please check our website soon for more info about the end of Season awards POTLUCK which will be NEXT SUNDAY at 5:00PM … as well as Fall Swim registration information.
