Jory Blauer

Congratulations to all of our swimmers who competed in the SWAT Grand Prix meet this past weekend, HPAC swimmers raced really well.  Many of our swimmers advanced to the Saturday night finals and took home some hardware:  Medals were awarded for the top 10 swimmers by age.  HPAC swimmers had SOOOOO MANY new best times, see below for a list of our swimmers who got a BINGO!  

Parents, you can view results from the meet & swimmers improvements over their previous best times - HERE - this link is located on our live website under the tab "Team Info" >> "Meet Results".
