Dan Klanderman

While any swim meet is fun, one that ends with the Dolphins getting a ‘1’ in our win column is even sweeter.  Congratulations to Coach Jeremy, his coaching staff, and all our swimmers for beating the Villa Aquatic Gorillas yesterday with a score of 227 to 193.  Go Dolphins!  Thank you to all our parents and volunteers for helping run a great home meet.

In addition to our regular practice schedule, the week ahead is a busy one so please bear with me.
