Charger Aquatics is pleased to announce that we have been recognized as a Silver Medal club for another year! Congratulations to the Swimmers, Parents, and Coaches for this remarkable achievement! No club in New Mexico had been recognized as a Silver Medal club prior to last year's recognition, and only one other club had ever been named as a Bronze Medal club in our state. We look forward to hanging another banner in our Natatorium!
