TRAINING  

 

December In-House Meet Results!

In December we had an unofficial week of racing to showcase the Swimmers work since getting back in the water after a long break.  It was a great chance to be back in a race setting and there were a lot of fast times!  When we return to the pool swimmers can look forward to ribbons and trophies! Please see the attachment on this email for race week results.
