  • Congratulations to our NWAA Sharks for winning the ARSI Age Group Championships! This was the first win for NWAA in this meet since 2007! It was a total team effort and we are incredibly proud of the energy and effort that the swimmers put into the three day meet. All of their hard work paid off and I hope that this motivates everyone to continue to put in the work moving forward!
  • Thank you to the swimmers, coaches, and parents for an amazing experience in Benton this weekend! We know that so much time, energy, and effort went into this season! GREAT JOB SHARKS!!!
