Weekly News (April 25-30)

Hello Panthers,

After spending a week in our cozy 25m pool, I have to admit that I really like the closeness of having everyone together in a pool the same size as the one I grew up swimming in. I am so happy to see everyone back in the pool and working hard.

I would really like to thank the parents who helped put our squad photos sessions together last week. That was a big success in my mind. I have never seen team photos taken over top of other swimmers training in the pool…wow!

Can’t wait to see how they turn out. They will be ready at our year-end awards dinner. Which reminds me…please sign up online for the year-end sprintfest meet. This is the fun part before the dinner. I would like to see as close to 100% turnout as possible. Our parent team in already looking very strong, but we can still use more. Coaches are also training hard for this meet!
