 Swim Team News 8/5/12


Boys Prelims - 

What a great job by our entire pool community hosting this event. Many coaches from our neighboring teams said that it was one of the best run championship meets that they had ever been to. It was suggested that we should host a "big meet" every year.

Many parents stepped up to organize and help - even if they didn't have kids in the meet! Our families, pool staff, and swimmers made us all proud. Community building events like this remind us of why this pool was built 53 years ago.

North Finals –

We had an exciting Northern Division Finals. After trailing Sand Point for most of the meet, we finally caught up during the Freestyle Relays. Kudos to our kids for the awesome effort! Here are the final scores –

Aqua Club – 420

Sand Point – 409

Wedgwood – 292

Innis Arden – 262

Klahaya – 219

View Ridge – 197

Sheridan Beach – 117

Blue Ridge – 103

Race Classes/Swim Lessons –

Race classes and swim lessons still occur after the swim team season ends! We’re trying out a “punch-card” system for August race classes. You can buy a set of five or ten half hour classes and use them as it fits you schedule. Classes will be offered at both 10:30 and 11:00am. Check with one of the coaches if you have any questions.

Undefeated Season!

Great job by all of our swimmers for pulling off this tremendous accomplishment. We had 2-3 close meets this year and expect some more next year! There are many teams in the SSSL on the rise with us in their sights. Let’s keep up the good fight and keep giving our best effort. Look for undefeated t-shirt ordering information at the banquet.
