Swimmers & Families,
Coach Holly: Congratulations on winning a tough meet on Saturday! Whittier is the top team in our Division, so I’m extra proud of you all for this win. So many swimmers improved – it was fun to watch. I was glad the relays went smoothly for the first time this season – good job on that! I was especially glad to see Coach Robby (and the others he dragged with him) get thrown in the pool at the end! Thanks to everyone who contributed to the food drive - 112 items were collected for the Girl Scout Silver Project. I love that our team is a giving team. A special thank you to all of the parents who volunteered at the meet. We received many compliments, and it is all due to your hard work. I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend and that the swimmers are ready to get back in the water on Wednesday!
Coach Robby: Another awesome meet! The improvements keep coming and all of us coaches are very proud of how far we have come since Day 1! As the season is starting to wind down, we need to keep working hard and continue to improve. Way to go everyone!
Coach Raegan: Great, great job to everyone!! I saw so much improvement this week! I could not be prouder of the number of kids who tried new events this week and did so well. Once again, amazing work everyone! Enjoy the holiday!!
Coach Reilly: Another meet done! I am so proud of how everyone did! Now we have two weeks to get even better! I can’t wait to see how everyone does. Congratulations to everyone and enjoy your 4th of July celebrations!
Coach Kayla: I’m very proud of everyone for another job well done. We worked on a lot of new things this week at practice, and I saw all the kids try it today. I couldn’t be happier to see everyone so willing to try new things. All of us coaches are so excited to see what improvements we can make next! Enjoy the 4th and make sure to rest up!
Coach Lizzie: This week’s meet went really well! The kids all did their best on their races, and I loved their enthusiasm for swimming. Each week they improve even more, and it makes me so excited to see how much better they are getting!
