On Saturday October 10, we held our annual TYR Classic (aka the Pumpkin Meet). The swimmers showed us their strength for those pumpkins! As a team we had numerous time drops, lots of Personal Best times achieved & tons of pumpkins taken home! It was great to see the younger swimmers so excited to get up and race for a pumpkin. The coaches are very proud of the older swimmers for stepping out of their comfort zone and swimming new & longer events! Congratulations to Molly Polk & Joao Lapagesse,...
