Season Finale

Swimmers & Families,

That was a great summer swim season!   I’m glad we were able to have at least a little time in the water, despite everything.  I want to thank BHST President Yanira Gordon for putting the entire season in motion (and getting me a vaccine appointment to make it possible for me to coach!).  She did so much work behind the scenes to make this a great practice season for the kids.  Thank you, Yanira!!

I also want to thank Deana Snyder, Christine Smith, Jackie Zumbrunn and Anne Dragic for arranging fundraisers, deejays, food trucks, creating meet programs & results, pictures and t-shirts for everyone.  You really stepped up to fill a need this summer, and your efforts made this such a unique and fun season!  We all really appreciate you!

Special thanks to the businesses who made our Fast Fridays just a little more special by offering heat winner awards: the Candy Kitchen in Frederick, Abbraccio Gelato in Middletown, and the Middletown Safeway.  Your generosity made a lot of kids happy – thank you!

Finally, thanks to my wonderful coaching staff.  You made this season one to remember! I appreciate all of the work you did with the swimmers this season, as well as all of the fun you created.  You were all fantastic!  Thanks! 

SWIMMERS OF THE WEEK for the final week of the season were:

8-U       Maren Hajduk

9-10      June Moore

11-12    James Reinhardt

13-14    Lucy Rodriguez

15-18    Luke Yeatman

Nice job, Swimmers!


To wrap the season up nicely, we will be having an afternoon of free swimming for all of our team families on Sunday, August 22 from 2:00-5:00 pm.  If you are not a member of the pool, just tell the gate guard you’re with the Barracudas and they will let you in.

I hope you all had a positive swimming experience this summer and that I see you next year!

Go Barracudas!

Coach Holly
