Congratulations to you all!

What a weekend! We are so proud of your athletes for the efforts they put into this past weekend's meets. Many tried new events for the first time, went up against amazing competition and held their ground, and the number of lifetime best swims earned in the pool was staggering. More importantly, we appreciate the Tiger Values that were displayed over the weekend. There were a number of instances that support that. Thank you to all of the officials who worked at the FAST Friday and SSC Summer Sizzler meet and to our FAST Friday timers, including many of our senior athletes. Our swimmers could not have achieved these results without your efforts supporting them and running the meets. Thank you!

It was a great weekend of racing and we are excited to see what our athletes do at this weekend’s Central Zone Multi-Cultural Meet in Illinois and at the Community Health Network FAST Summer Jam in two weeks. We look forward to seeing what the future holds as you reach your goals… and set new ones!

Tiger Up!
