PAC Season Opener - Dual Meet vs The Dolphins!

Scott Miyako

The 2021-2022 PAC SCY season is in full swing and we've kicked off our season with a dual meet with The Dolphins! It was a chilly and early morning for our 68 PAC swimmers last Saturday at West Hills Raquet and Fitness Club. For 13 of our swimmers, this was their first meet swimming with PAC! Our Athletes Reps did an amazing job pairing new swimmers with mentor swimmers. Mentor swimmers showed our first-timers the ins and outs of a dual meet and fun times were had by all. We are so proud of all of our swimmers and it was a very successful first meet of the season. Big thank you to all of the parents and officials who volunteered to make this meet possible. GO PAC!
