Past Events

  • GSC had 65% best times!  Click here for the improvement report.  If your swimmer's race does not appear on the report, it probably means they were disqualified.  Please contact coach Scott if you would like to know what a swimmer was DQ'd for.

News

  • Please welcome Coach Tabitha to our staff!!  She has been doing a wonderful job, and we are lucky to have her.  She is the mother of Tytan and Kai Frawley, and has an extensive background swimming and coaching swimmers.
