WEEKEND UPDATE: The Varsity and Senior swimmers raced in Walnut Creek yesterday and had some tremendous swims.  We were just “brushing off the cobwebs and remembering how to race again” in a regular meet setting.  This group of 15 swimmers dropped a combined 1 minute and 30 seconds off their events! 6 swims were faster than the goal time they set for themselves to beat by December (*). Way to go BAY!
