Swimmers & families,
Coach Holly It was a memorable week for swimming, highlighted by the Olympic Trials. We had our own Olympic trials, and I hope you all enjoyed getting a taste of what Olympians do!! It was especially exciting to see Barracudas watch the fastest swimmers and try to copy their strokes. That is how greatness begins!
This week we are focusing on building up swimming endurance. We have less than three weeks until Divisionals. Let's use them to get stronger! Have a great 4th of July!
Coach Rogers I was sorry to miss the meet, but I heard you all did well! Good job!
Coach Chelsea Maybe we didn't score the most points at the meet, but we showed the most team support. We're improving every week. Practice is really important these last three weeks - come!!
Coach Kameryn This week everyone did a great job doing streamlines off the walls. Everyone improved drastically on their dives. It was awesome.
Coach Sarah I was really excited to see how enthusiastic the swimmers were at this past meet. I love to see you cheering on your teammates, and being proud to be part of this team.
CONGRATULATIONS to this week's Swimmer of the Week winners: Ricky Cicmanec, Grace Rudy, James Bongard and Reilly Campbell.
