Swimmers & Families,
Wow – what a great group of people you all are! I’m so proud that not only did the swimmers have a great meet, you also gave over 300 items to help our community. (Side note: I kept track of those who pushed me in – you will pay.) It’s such fun to see exciting races like the last relays. We did not win the meet, but we gave them a good run. The other team’s coach gave me a high compliment. He said the thing about our team is that it seems like our kids WANT to be there, that they seem to really enjoy it. I love that. Good work!
Coach Robby: Awesome work yesterday! You all are crushing it. The work you’ve put in during practices is showing and you are doing an amazing job! Keep working hard during this last week! Congrats on an awesome regular season, Barracudas!
Coach Kayla: Fantastic job, everyone! First, I’m seeing so much improvement in every race and I’m so proud of all the swimmers who try their best every day. Let’s continue to work hard at practice! Last, a lot of swimmers showed great sportsmanship by cheering on their own teammates and others from Linganore. Just remembering that swim team is about having fun! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
Coach Lizzie: Woohoo, the last regular season went so well and it ended with a bang! I’m so rpoud of the swimming and the giving nature of our team, and of how we came together to collect so many cans – even if the motivation was to push the coaches in ; ). I am very excited to see what the kids do for this last week of practice, and I hope they continue to work very hard! Go Barracudas!
Coach Josh: Super amazing meet yesterday! I’m so proud of everyone! There was a lot of cheering and spirit that you guys put into this meet!! We all did really well and I couldn’t have asked for better last regulation meet!! Keep up the good work in the pool and I’ll see you back at the pool for practice!!
Coach Sadie: This meet was super fun. Everybody did a fantastic job! Looking forward to Divisionals next week!
