Swimmers & Families,
Great job hosting our first home meet of the season! Thank you to all of the parents who volunteered to help – it went very smoothly! It was rewarding to see the improvement the swimmers made from last week to this week, knowing how hard they all worked. We have a shortened week this week, so we have to make every practice count.
Coach Robby: Another great meet! A lot of dropped time and a lot of what we worked on in practice was displayed. All of the hard work is paying off and there are a lot of improvements. Great job all around!
Coach Raegan: Amazing job today! I saw a ton of improvement and a lot of people dropped time. I am so proud of everyone for trying new things and trying your best! Once again great job and I can’t wait for the weeks to come!
Coach Reilly: Fantastic job today everyone! I saw a lot of improvements, both in form and in times. Enjoy your day off today and be ready for another great week at practice! I can’t wait to see how everyone does at the next meet!
Coach Kayla: Great meet yesterday! I am so proud of everyone. I saw a lot of improvement and so many people dropped time. I have seen all the work that the kids put in and it definitely showed today! Good work, everyone!
