Another summer and another amazing Junior Olympic Champs for the Clovis Swim Club! This year was really fun because the rivalry was with ourselves. Our boys team and our girls team finished the meet with less than 400 points between them (boys won!). The coaches also put out the challenge to try to score more points than we did the previous year (6380…we were SUPER close). It was a fun way to engage our crew and they were up to the challenge:
- Clovis Swim Club 6226.50
- Tule Nation Tritons 2884.50
- Sandpiper Swim Club 1810
- Paso Robles Aquatics 1046
- Merced Skimmers 905.50
From an individual standpoint, we had lots of successes in the water. I like to break it down by the numbers to really bring out the “wow factor,” so here it goes:

Just a reminder that we know there are loads of names that don’t make it to print on this recap and that our coaches and staff appreciate ALL of the efforts that all of our athletes give for this big event. The numbers provide the “wow-factor” but don’t provide the whole story.
Also noted is the exceptional effort put in by our parents and volunteers to make this meet a great experience and a positive memory for all of our members and all of the other people participating and in attendance. Thank-you!!!
