Dual Meet Season Wrap Up

What a great season!

Undefeated.  7 – 0.

We had our largest team ever – 269 swimmers.  Many new faces and even a few who came back after a year or two off!


Thanks to everybody for pitching in and helping to organize our meets. Age group parents, timers, clerk helpers, officials, and the data crew – without you this would have not been possible.  Thanks also to the Aqua Club staff for assisting with meet setup and clean up.


Prelims Information

We have an amazing 108 qualifiers for Boys and Girls Prelims!

Good luck to you all, and remember to enjoy the ride.

We do need volunteers at these away meets. Log in to the job sign-up page to sign up to time or help herd children. Stoke and Turn officials should check in with Mary Beth Davis to see which meets you would like to work.
