Team, Our first meet as MAKO was a huge success!  Our swimmers swam very well!  The meet was very organized and ran seemlessly!  We recieved many complements from other teams on how great the meet was.  All of this would not have been possible with out everyone pitching in to help.  Thank you swimmers for swimming and parents (and older swimmers) for volunteering.  I would like to specially thank Paula Whisenhunt, Michelle Wemhoner, and Brenda Sandoval for organizing and running the meet.   Again thank you for everything!!!
