What a GREAT MEET, Barracudas!!

Swimmers & Families,

Coach Holly:  What a day yesterday was!  Thunderstorms, sunshine, lots of fast swims and we won the meet!  I am so pleased with the progress I am seeing in practice and meets.  We have only one week left of the swim season – let’s make the most of it!  I want to say a special thank you to the volunteers who worked hard, even with the meet delay and the weather conditions.  Also, thank you to Maya & Guy Pilkington for hosting a fun parent get-together. We have the best parents!   The success of all of our swimmers is a reflection of your support and hard work behind the scenes.

Coach Robby:  Great meet!  The delay set us back a bit, but the swimmers didn’t let it affect them.  The hard work the swimmers put forth in practice is definitely showing in the meets.  Great job!

Coach Kam:  This was such a fun meet!  I’m so glad we were able to finish an have a great time despite the weather.  Amazing attitudes and effort had by everyone!  I’m so excited for Divisionals!  We have a great opportunity ahead of us! Last one, fast one!

Coach Emma:  Good job to everyone!  I’m really proud how everyone did in our last dual meet.  I am impressed with how many swimmers made All-Stars this week.  Everyone’s hard work in practice is definitely showing!  Good luck next week!

Coach Reilly:  Dude, you guys did awesome!  I’m so proud of everyone.  I saw a lot of people swim some really good times.  I’m sad this is our last dual meet, but I can’t wait to see how everyone does next meet.  Great job, everyone!

Coach Raegan:  This was such an amazing meet!  I am so proud of everyone and all of the improvements from last week.  I can’t wait for next week.  Divisionals is going to be a great meet!  Great job to everyone again!
